Exchanging the Truth of God into the lie…

Black Hole in NGC 1600

Many are exchanging the Truth of God into THE lie that the serpent told to the woman in the garden.

The serpent said unto the woman: “you shall not surely die”….which should be literally translated: “dying, you shall not die.” Meaning: By “killing” another with false accusations and slander, you shall not die. We “kill” by speaking evil of another.

Genesis 3:
(4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

“For God does know that…” Meaning: you are doing this thing in God’s name…His authority.

“…In the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened….” Meaning: you shall be seen as wise by speaking evil of another.

“…and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Meaning: you shall be as JUDGES (the Hebrew word for “gods” is “Elohim” which also means “judges”). A judge judges who or what is good and evil and many believe that they are doing these things in God’s authority. People succumb to the lie by setting themselves up as judge, jury and executioner of another because they are the “wise” one who knows what is good and evil and are doing this for God supposedly.

(5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Desirous to be seen as “wise”, the woman believes the lie and partook of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Professing to be wise….desirous of vain glory, they became a fool.

(6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Death and life are in the power (hand) of the tongue and those that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Yet the tongue is the “weaker vessel” to the hidden man of the heart (that he is supposed to rule over by bridling his tongue). A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth.

Proverbs 18:20-23 KJV
(20) A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.
(21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
(22) Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
(23) The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.

If we speak evil of another, we are judging (you shall be as “gods”…as “judges”) and not doing the law of Christ who gave us the new commandment to have love for one another as He loved us and gave Himself for us. We are to walk in love with each other.

We are not as “gods”….judges…for there is only ONE Judge who is able to save and to destroy. There is only One Lawgiver. The woman inserted her own carnal commandment (neither shall you touch it) as though God had said it….but God did not command it.

James 4:11-12 KJV
(11) Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
(12) There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

The basis for many judging others (speaking evil of our brothers) is the external keeping commandments of men that men have added to the commandment of God as the woman did: “neither shall you touch it”. Men preach their commandments to others as if God commanded them to keep them and they use them as a basis to speak evil of others who do not follow them.

Genesis 3:1-3 KJV
(1) Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
(2) And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
(3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

As the woman desired to be seen as wise and partook of that tree of the knowledge of good and evil (a judge is to know what or whom is good and evil), many that are professing themselves to be wise have become fools…..

Romans 1:22-25 KJV
(22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
(23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
(24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

….for they are exchanging the Truth of God into THE lie that the serpent spoke. They are serving the “creature”…that is, the “formation”….the ordinance of men…MORE than the Creator who is blessed forever.

(25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

They worship Him in vain teaching for doctrines the commandments of men (i.e. “touch not”) and lay aside the commandment of God. Many are holding to the tradition of men and fight with each other rather than having love for one another.

Mark 7:6-8 KJV
(6) He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
(7) Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
(8) For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

They exchange the Truth of God for THE LIE of the serpent when God commanded man not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:16-17 KJV
(16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
(17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Of every tree of the garden we may freely eat. There is NO LAW against the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.

Galatians 5:22-26 KJV
(22) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
(23) Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
(24) And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
(25) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

But there is the law of sin and death for those who walk after the flesh in their envy and strife and provoking one another. We are not under the law if we walk after the Spirit.

Let us not be like the woman in the garden and desire to be seen as wise….desirous of our own vain glory…and speak evil of another thereby provoking one another.

We are not as “gods”…that is, as judges. There is only ONE Lawgiver who is able to save and to destroy. Why judge others as “evil doers” who will “burn in hell” for not keeping our particular denomination’s external commandment of man? Why set aside the commandment of God who told us to love one another in order to keep the transmissions of men that they have handed down from one generation to another which saves the flesh of no one?

(26) Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

We use the same mouth to bless God and curse men. This should not be so.

Death and life are in the power (hand) of the tongue….which is the “weaker vessel” to the hidden man of the heart. Those who love it eat the fruit of it. Of what tree are we going to partake of? An evil tree can NOT produce good fruit when we speak evil of another because they do not follow our particular external commandments of men. Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing of God and cursing of other men who are made after the similitude of God. We are not blessing God by cursing others because we are the “wise” one and the rest are “fools”.

James 3:8-18 KJV
(8) But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
(9) Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
(10) Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
(11) Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
(12) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

The woman desired to be seen as wise and partook of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil by speaking evil of another in her bitter envying and strife. But who is a wise person and endued with knowledge among us? Those who show out of a good behavior their works with MEEKNESS of wisdom.

(13) Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
(14) But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

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

(15) This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
(16) For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
(17) But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
(18) And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. Let us not believe that we are speaking evil of another in the name (authority) of God. (The LIE: “For God does know” = we are doing God service for doing these things).

We must DO His will and have love for one another.

Matthew 7:18-23 KJV
(18) A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
(19) Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
(20) Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
(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.

We are not doing these “wonderful works” in His authority when we cast out others as “devils” or “evil doers”.

(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?
(23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The man “is become as one of us to know good and evil.” That is, man makes himself a “judge” for God that knows good and evil.

He thinks that he is doing God “service” for judging others as “evil doers”, “devils”, etc. (which is part of the lie of the serpent). The man wants to be seen as “wise” and eats continuously of this tree of the knowledge of good and evil thinking that he is doing these things in God’s authority (becoming a judge in the authority of God).

Genesis 3:22-24 KJV
(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:
(23) Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
(24) So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

God sent the man forth from the garden of Eden to work the ground from when he was taken.
They exchange the Truth of God for a lie and are given over to a reprobate (rejected) mind to do those things which are not convenient.

Romans 1:28-32 KJV
(28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

They sow after the flesh….tilling the ground from where the man was taken from….

(29) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
(30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
(31) Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
(32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Romans 8:12-13 KJV
(12) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
(13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

To be continued….

The son of “perdition” (destruction)…

IMG_6261 (2)

Again, we are to be followers of Paul in that we work with our own hands to support our own necessities of food, drink, clothing….as he did. These are the “earthly things” that we are to work with our own hands and NOT get paid to preach in order to get these things.

Philippians 3:17-19 KJV
(17) Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

Yet, many are not walking according to the commandment and example of the Lord’s apostles who worked with their own hands day and night so as not to be chargeable to anyone.

Their end is the DESTRUCTION of their mortal bodies as they preach for money in order that they may literally feed their belly. Their flesh is being destroyed as they speak. Their judgment made long ago and their destruction does not slumber as they are perishing from off this earth. They are the “son of perdition…destruction.

They are minding earthly things: what to eat, what to wear, what to drink as they preach to get these things and are being destroyed in their mortal flesh (aging and dying from off this earth).

They are the “son of perdition”…the son of destruction… as they lead many astray from righteousness with their good words and fair speeches so that the life of Jesus is never made manifest in the mortal flesh of any of their followers as they are living in church denominations where there are envy, strife, hatred of one another, etc. Their congregations are living according to the lusts of their leaders who seek money and none of the congregants are getting fed with the Word of Truth and are perishing.

The MANY destroyers of the temple of God (our mortal body) are being destroyed themselves….hence, the “son of perdition”….or son of destruction.

(18) (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
(19) Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

Paul declared unto the overseers (the “eye” of the church) all of the counsel of God on how to feed the flock. Paul is pure from the blood of all men as he makes it VERY CLEAR on how to do this: by working with our own hands for our own necessities enables us to truly understand the Word of God in order to spiritually feed the church of God.

Acts 20:26-31 KJV
(26) Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.
(27) For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
(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.

Paul knew that after his departing that they grievous wolves would enter in among us not sparing the flock

(29) For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
(30) Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Many walk, of whom Paul has told us often, and now tells us even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ

(31) Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
(32) And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Paul did not covet any man’s silver, gold or apparel as his own hands ministered unto His necessities. He did not yearn for these things from anyone else as he worked as a tentmaker in order to have them. He did not preach for these “earthly things” but worked with his own hands so that he did not covet after others’ earthly things.

Yet MANY are preaching themselves for these things instead of being servants. They are preaching in order to be served like a king rather than them serving.

MANY are walking as the enemies of the cross of Christ because the flock is not being fed the Word of Truth and no flesh is being saved in the churches of carnal men who are preaching to have their earthly needs met. Their payment for their “service” is “blood money” as no flesh is being saved because the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in their flesh giving them life in the here and now.

(33) I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel.
(34) Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.

Paul has shown the overseers of the church how that working with their own hands to support themselves shall enable them to truly feed the church of God with the Word of Truth. Men who are preaching for the sake of their earthly things do not have any understanding and are not feeding anyone but themselves….literally.

(35) I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

An overseer is the “eye” of the church. Not everyone is an “eye” in the body of Christ. If that “eye” is evil, then the WHOLE BODY is full of darkness as they are not being fed the Word of Truth because of the preaching for money.

Matthew 6:22-24 KJV
(22) The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
(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!

An overseer in the church cannot serve 2 masters. He cannot serve God AND mammon by preaching for a paycheck. He must work with his own hands outside the church to support his own necessities so that he may truly feed the sheep.

(24) No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

But the prophets that make His people err from the Truth cry “peace” to those who come put food in their mouths by paying them and they prepare war against any that do not. They are false prophets who cry “peace”  for there is no peace in their churches.

Micah 3:5-11 KJV
(5) Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

They have no understanding of the Scriptures. They have no understanding as it is “dark unto you”….”night shall be unto you”…. “the sun shall go down”….”the day shall be dark over them”.

If they can not understand the Bible because of the preaching for money so that they can eat (the minding of the earthly things), then how is that they are truly “feeding” anyone? They are only feeding their own bellies.  Their understanding is DARKENED so that they are not feeding anyone.

(6) Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.
(7) Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.

They need to have their transgression declared unto them…..

(8) But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.
(9) Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity.
(10) They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.

…..the heads of the church are judging FOR REWARD and the priests teach FOR HIRE and the prophets divine FOR MONEY. They are false prophets as they say no evil can come upon us.

(11) The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.

The shepherds are only feeding themselves….

Ezekiel 34:1-6 KJV
(1) And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
(2) Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

The destroyers are “killing” those that are “fed” because they are not being fed with the Word of Truth and are famished from not hearing it.

(3) Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.

NO FLESH is being saved by them as they are not feeding anyone with the Word of Truth.  All we hear in their churches is the word of carnal men and the sheep are scattered by every wind of doctrine taught by the craftiness of deceptive men.

(4) The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.
(5) And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.
(6) My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.

We cannot be joined together with them. If we are joined together with them, then we are ONE FLESH with them and are being destroyed along with them. The head that is preaching for hire is the “son of perdition”….and we are being destroyed in our mortal flesh just be being in their company. One bad apple rots the whole group. A little leaven leavens the whole lump.

1 Corinthians 6:14-20 KJV
(14) And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
(15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
(16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
(17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

We sin against our own mortal body when we are joined together with them in their churches . It is “fornication”.   We are ONE FLESH with them and are being destroyed along with the son of “perdition”.

(18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
(19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
(20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

If any man destroys the temple of God (as they defile our mortal flesh by what they preach), him shall God destroy. The “son of perdition” is destroying the mortal flesh of those they preach to and is himself being destroyed.

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

Their destruction does not slumber as their mortal flesh is being destroyed. They are perishing from off this earth….and this is wide spread in EVERY church denomination. MANY are following their destructive (pernicious) ways.

2 Peter 2:1-3 KJV
(1) But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
(2) And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
(3) And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

We must remove far away from the deceptive tongues of men who handle the Word of God deceptively so that they can get paid. The “strange woman” is the tongue of the hidden man of the heart that teaches strange doctrines and hides the covetousness within their hearts. They deceive the hearts of the simple with good words and fair speeches.

Proverbs 5:1-14 KJV
(1) My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
(2) That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
(3) For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
(4) But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
(5) Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
(6) Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
(7) Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
(8) Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
(9) Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:

If we fall victim to the flattering words of “strangers”, then they will be filled with our wealth as we pay them and labor for them in their churches instead of them laboring for their own necessities so that they may truly serve us the Word of Truth.

(10) Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;

They are the “son of perdition” that will consume our flesh and our body if we keep company with them….

(11) And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
(12) And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
(13) And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
(14) I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.

They are counseled to RENOUNCE the hidden things of dishonesty….not handling the Word of God deceitfully for dishonest gain.

2 Corinthians 4:1-6 KJV
(1) Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
(2) But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

The good news is hid to those who are perishing from off this earth. They are “lost” as the god of this age (their own belly) blinds the minds of those who really do not believe.  It is “dark” unto them as their understanding of the Scriptures is darkened.

(3) But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
(4) In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

They are preaching themselves as they serve their own belly and not our Lord Jesus Christ. With good words and fair speeches do they deceive the hearts of the simple….and they lead MANY to their destruction as the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in their followers’ flesh. NO FLESH is being saved.

(5) For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
(6) For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The false prophets preach “peace” in their churches…..but there is none as many are living in divisions and famine of hearing the words of God. The false prophets heal the “deadly wound” by preaching “peace” when there is no peace among them.

Jeremiah 14:13-15 KJV
(13) Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.
(14) Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
(15) Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

They want to get paid saying we must “make an image” to their churches. Money has the image of man upon it and this graven image has no business being inside our gatherings.

Is Jesus truly RISEN?

IMG_6297 (2)

Clearly, Jesus states in Revelation 1 that He is alive and WAS dead and behold He is (I AM) alive for evermore. If Jesus is truly alive, then why are we still mortally dying? Why are men preaching we have to “die and go to heaven” when Jesus already died for us and is alive now forevermore?

Revelation 1:17-18 KJV
(17) And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
(18) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Our Savior has abolished death for us (rendering it idle). He has brought life and immortality to light through the good news (gospel). This is a here-and-now thing for this life as He was sent to this world so that we may have life and have it more abundantly.

2 Timothy 1:9-10 KJV
(9) Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
(10) But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

Romans 6 clearly says that the wages of sin is death. PERIOD. Our mortal bodies are dying because of sin.

Romans 6:22-23 KJV
(22) But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
(23) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The body is dead because of sin….BUT the Spirit is LIFE because of righteousness. It is the Spirit that gives our mortal bodies (which are dead because of sin) LIFE NOW as Jesus is alive now.

Romans 8:10-14 KJV
(10) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

If we continue to sow after the Spirit, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (make alive) our MORTAL bodies by His Spirit that dwells in us. The definition of “mortal” is “subject to death”…meaning we are dying in our mortal bodies but haven’t yet. The Spirit “dwells” in us if we are always led by the Spirit of God.

(11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
(12) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

If we live after the flesh (the wrath, envy, strife, covetousness of men), then our mortal bodies shall die. But if through the Spirit (by always sowing to the Spirit of God which bears the fruit of everlasting life) do deaden the deeds of the body, we shall live….in the here and now. This life is the life of Jesus that is made manifest in our mortal bodies so that we may show this dark and dying world that He is truly alive now forevermore.  We are to be His living proofs in this world that He is alive….the I AM exists.

(13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
(14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

The life of Jesus is to be made manifest in our MORTAL FLESH in this life. We are to partake always the dying of our Lord Jesus in our bodies (the “daily” sacrifice) so that His life shall be made manifest. We have this treasure in EARTHEN vessels….our mortal bodies …so that His appearing eternal life can only be attributable to the power of God and not of us. None of the external keeping of the commandments of men can manifest His life.  The flesh profits nothing.

2 Corinthians 4:7-11 KJV
(7) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
(8) We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
(9) Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
(10) Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
(11) For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

But if the good news is hid, it is hid to those that are “lost”…that is, perishing in their mortal flesh as they age away to the grave. Their flesh withers away because the “god” of this age has blinded their minds of those who do not truly believe that Jesus is alive and  we are to have His heavenly, eternal life NOW in this earth in our mortal bodies.  They can not see this good news as they preach for money’s sake in order to feed themselves.  The shepherds can not understand the Scriptures and are only feeding themselves literally while the sheep are spiritually starving as they are not being fed the true Word of God so that they might have His life NOW.

2 Corinthians 4:3-6 KJV
(3) But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
(4) In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

The good news of His life NOW is hid from those who are preaching themselves. They preach for money so that they may eat, drink and have apparel to wear rather than work with their own hands to support their own necessities so that they may truly understand His gospel….His good news for us in the here and now.

(5) For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
(6) For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

They do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ but their own belly as they preach with deceptive good words and fair speeches in order to literally feed it. Their belly is the “god” of this age as they are only serving to feed it as they preach the Scriptures without any understanding of them. They can not see the good news for the here and now but instead preach their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave. But the wages of sin is DEATH….death to the mortal body.

Romans 16:17-18 KJV
(17) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
(18) For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Paul worked with his own hands as a tent maker in order to support his own earthly needs and we are to be “followers together” of him and walk in the same way so that we may truly be able to feed others with the Word of Truth.

Philippians 3:17-21 KJV
(17) Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
(18) (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

But MANY walk “disorderly” and not after the transmission of the apostles who told us to work with our own hands to support our own earthly needs. They are preaching for money (preaching themselves) and are dying in their mortal bodies. Their end is the total destruction of the mortal flesh….death. The wages of sin is death. They are minding “earthly things”…..how to preach to support themselves in their quest for what to eat, drink and what to wear.

(19) Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

The good news is hid from the eyes of their understanding. They are not looking of the Savior to come and change our “vile”….that is, humiliated by sin….mortal bodies so that it may be fashioned like His glorious body. They are not looking for this transformation in this earth but rather look to “dying and going to heaven” when Jesus WAS dead and is alive now forevermore so that we might have His appearing life NOW.

(20) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
(21) Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

They will persecute us for believing that His life shall appear in our mortal flesh in the here and now. They will persecute us for believing in the good news that is hid from their understanding. The sufferings we shall endure from the “Christian” nonbelievers shall be nothing compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us as His life shall appear outwardly giving our mortal bodies life now.

Romans 8:17-29 KJV
(17) And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
(18) For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Who are the sons of God? Those who are led by the Spirit. The whole creation earnestly awaits the manifestation of the sons of God as the life of Jesus is made manifest in our outer mortal flesh.

(19) For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
(20) For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

The creation itself shall be delivered from the bondage of “corruption”…that is, DECAY…into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

(21) Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
(22) For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

What are we waiting for? The redemption of our mortal bodies as His life shall appear and our decay from our sins disappears and we live His eternal life in the here and now.

(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.

With out faith and hope in this, there is no way that His life shall appear. We are saved by hope in this.

(24) For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

We are to patiently wait for it. We are to wait on the salvation of our Lord whose life shall appear in our mortal flesh giving us eternal life in the here and now where others shall see His glory in us.

(25) But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
(26) Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
(27) And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
(28) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

We are to be conformed to the image of His Son who WAS dead and is alive now forevermore.

(29) For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

The scoffers shall come forth and ask “where is the promise of His coming?” Where is this appearing eternal life of Jesus in our mortal flesh that was promised of our Lord? They will scoff at this and continue to walk after their lusts…..minding earthly things as they preach for money….coveting after others’ gold, silver and apparel.

We are to be mindful of the words that were spoken before of the holy prophets and of the COMMANDMENT of the apostles of the Lord and Savior.

2 Thessalonians 3:4-15 KJV
(4) And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.

We PATIENTLY are to wait for Christ whose eternal life shall appear in our mortal flesh in due time….and no man can then take away our joy with his persecutions. He shall appear in glory and we share in His glory in this dark world as we shall have His eternal life appear in our mortal flesh.

(5) And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.

The command is to WORK with our own hands as the apostles labored day and night so as not to be chargeable to anyone. Those who do not work with their own hands in order to support their own earthly things/needs, are walking “disorderly” and not after the transmission (tradition) that we have received of the apostles of the Lord. We are commanded not to keep company with those who are walking disorderly against the commandment of the apostles of the Lord who showed us the example to follow as they worked with their own hands night and day.

(6) Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

We are to “follow” them in their example of working with our own hands to support our own needs rather than come preach for money in order to get our earthly needs met.

(7) For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
(8) Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
(9) Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

If any will not work, neither shall he eat to fill his belly of which is the “god” of this age as the outside nations go after these things exclusively. We are commanded not to sit with them in their churches where they do not follow after the commandment to work with their own hands OUTSIDE the church.

(10) For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
(11) For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
(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.
(13) But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
(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.
(15) Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

The scoffers shall come forth and continue to walk “disorderly” against the commandment of the apostles of the Lord and Savior to work with their own hands for their earthly needs OUTSIDE the church.

2 Peter 3:1-9 KJV
(1) This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
(2) That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

They will scoff at the hearing of the appearing life of Jesus in our mortal flesh in the here and now as they will question “where is the promise of His appearing?” They will continue to walk after their preaching themselves for earthly things.

(3) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
(4) And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
(5) For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
(6) Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

The wrath of God IS REVEALED from heaven against all ungodliness of men. The heavens and the earth which are NOW are stored (reserved) with fire against the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. The wages of sin is death. This is a here-and-now thing as all flesh withers to the day of death.  Our mortal flesh withers under the sun of His wrath until we die from off this earth.

(7) But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
(8) But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

He is longsuffering toward us not willing that any should perish from off this earth but that all should come to change the minds about these things.

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

Jesus is truly alive (I AM). He exists NOW and so we are to have His life NOW when we keep the “daily” sacrifice continually in our bodies. But a multitude of men have come forth following in the footsteps of Judas who came to take Jesus away. They come to us to take the “daily” out of our lives so that His life is never made manifest in our mortal flesh giving us eternal life in the here and now.

John 18:3-8 KJV
(3) Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
(4) Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?

They are casting the Truth to the ground that Jesus is I AM. They are casting that He WAS dead and IS ALIVE NOW forever more to the ground as they are casting our mortal bodies to the grave by what they are preaching. They are casting the sanctuary of the Spirit of God (our mortal bodies) to the ground…to the grave. He is “I AM”…alive now.  but they continue to preach that we “die and go to heaven” as though they are forgetting that Jesus IS RISEN NOW and so we are to have His life NOW when we keep His death in our mortal bodies.   We have this treasure in EARTHEN VESSELS.

(5) They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
(6) As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
(7) Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
(8) Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:

If we keep the “daily” in the temple (the mortal body which is the temple of the Spirit of God), then those who come forth with deceptive words can not have power over us. But when we forget to always keep His “daily” sacrifice, then they have their hour. When we fall asleep to remembering to always bear about the dying of our Lord Jesus in our mortal bodies, then this is the power of darkness and they have their hour to lead us astray from the keeping of His daily so that His life is never made manifest in our mortal flesh.

Luke 22:53 KJV
(53) When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

The “little horn” is that power of darkness that the “host”….those who follow in the footsteps of Judas… can lead us astray with. The “host”….those pastors, reverends, priests, etc….have power over us in the power of darkness and come to take away the keeping of His daily sacrifice out of our lives so that the mortal body (the place of His sanctuary) is cast down to the ground…the grave.

Daniel 8:11-12 KJV
(11) Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
(12) And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

They do not want to hear His disciples preach that He is TRULY RISEN FROM THE DEAD and steal their congregations from them. They want to make the tomb a sure thing as they keep people in their churches with the handwriting of church dogmas that are against us and are contrary to us. They keep us in their churches with the teachings and commandments of men and no one is let loose from their denominations and unfortunately NO FLESH is being saved in them.

Matthew 27:63-66 KJV
(63) Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
(64) Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
(65) Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.
(66) So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh…

This earthly life that we are living in is not a “stopover” in our journey to heaven. We are here in this earth so that we may show to this dark and dying world what it truly means to do His will as the life of Jesus is set to appear in our outer mortal flesh. The Word is made flesh and the world shall see His appearing glory.

The keeping of the “daily” sacrifice is the ALWAYS bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus.

We do this continually so that His eternal life which He already is experiencing in heaven is made manifest (to shine) in our MORTAL FLESH. This is a “here –and-now” thing and not a “hereafter” as preached by nearly all men who are preaching themselves (preaching for money so that they may feed themselves).

This is not about “dying and going to heaven” but rather having His eternal life made manifest in this earth so that the world may see His glory through us. This is about life to our mortal bodies in this earthly realm where we are to display His heavenly life. He gives His flesh for the life of this world and we are to be His living proofs that He is truly alive. Think about it. In heaven, His will is already being done by all but not in this earth where sin destroys our mortal bodies. Here in this earth is where we appear in glory (His glory) as His life appears in the world so that they may see what it means to truly be a citizen of heaven as we follow the things which are above.

We are citizens of heaven in this earthly life when we seek those things above. The earthly man follows the earthly wisdom of behaving in envy, strife and hatred of each other and is destroyed from off this terra firma under the wrath of God.

2 Corinthians 4:10-12 KJV
(10) Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
(11) For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

The keeping of the “daily” sacrifice is kept by continuously walking in love as Christ has loved us and gave Himself for us as an offering and a SACRIFICE to God for a sweet smelling savor.  See how the “daily” is paraphrased in Ephesians 5?

Ephesians 5:1-3 KJV
(1) Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
(2) And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

But covetousness….which is the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION….should not be once named among us as becoming saints. Men should not be preaching for money among us when we assemble together in His name.

(3) But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

We must NOT keep company with those who are preaching themselves for money so that they may eat and have clothes to wear (minding those earthly things). A preacher must work with his own hands OUTSIDE the church….and not inside. They are minding earthly things: what to eat, what to wear, what to drink as they preach for these things. They are not feeding anyone but themselves as they have NO UNDERSTANDING of the Scriptures.

They preach for money….coveting after another man’s gold, silver and apparel….so that they may feed their bellies literally and have the earthly things that are necessary for living. We must not keep company with those who are called “brothers” but are covetous (seeking our money for their preaching so that they may have their earthly necessities).

1 Corinthians 6:
(9) I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
(10) Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
(11) But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
(12) For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
(13) But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

If we sit together with them in their churches, we are sinning against our own mortal bodies as we become ONE FLESH with them. We perish from this earth right along with them.  We can not be joined together with them….the true “fornication”.

1 Corinthians 6:15-20 KJV
(15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
(16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
(17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
(18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

Our mortal body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in us….and we are to glorify God in our mortal bodies by not keeping company with covetous “brothers”.

(19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
(20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

They lead us astray from the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice so that they may get paid (covetousness= the abomination of desolation). They come forth to take the keeping of the “daily” out of our lives and set up their covetousness in our lives. When we are deceived into following them (the “host” follows after Judas in his footsteps who came to take Jesus away), the mortal body (the place of His sanctuary) is cast down to the grave.

Daniel 8:11-12 KJV
(11) Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.

They practice and prosper….getting paid to preach…and no flesh is saved in their congregations. They are casting down the Truth (that Jesus WAS dead and IS ALIVE NOW forever more) to the ground as His life in not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of any of their followers.

(12) And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.

His people are letting men take advantage of them GLADLY as men exalt themselves over the church and take of them (getting paid to preach) and devour.

2 Corinthians 11:19-20 KJV
(19) For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
(20) For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.

They “have” Father’s wife….His church.

1 Corinthians 5:1-13 KJV
(1) It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.

Yet, many are “puffed up”. They glory in their leaders who are taking advantage of them and are not preaching the Word of Truth and are preventing the life of Jesus from being made manifest in their mortal flesh in the here and now. We must not keep company with those who are called “brothers” but are covetous.  They are to be taken away from our company.

(2) And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

They are ALREADY being judged in the flesh as their mortal flesh is being destroyed from this earth so that their spirit may be saved. They are perishing because of this thing and those who are keeping company with them are also perishing as they are all ONE FLESH. The life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of any of them.

(3) For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
(4) In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
(5) To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

Our glorying in our church leaders who are exercising their authority to get paid over the “wife” of the Father is not good. It takes one bad apple to rot the whole group when we sit together with those who are preaching themselves (preaching for money rather than being a “servant”).  We become ONE mortal flesh with them and are being destroyed in the mortal body so that our spirit may be saved.  Whoever is destroying the temple of God because of his preaching for money is himself being destroyed.

(6) Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
(7) Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
(8) Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

We must NOT keep company with them.

(9) I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
(10) Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
(11) But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

God already is judging the outside world as no flesh is being saved as they pursue their earthly things of what to eat, drink and wear.   We can not go outside to world to get away from such people but we can NOT sit together with those who are preaching for these things in our worship of Him.

(12) For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
(13) But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly….

Again, MULTITUDES of church “leaders” come forth to speak with the flattering tongue and take Jesus (the keeping of His “daily” sacrifice) out of the lives of MANY as they lead them astray from His commandment to have love for one another. They do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ but their own belly as they focus only on how to get paid for preaching so that they may have their necessities. By good words and fair speeches do they deceive the hearts of the simple.

Romans 16:17-18 KJV
(17) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
(18) For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

They lead us away from the keeping of the Law and the Prophets which are fulfilled by doing to others as we would have them do to us (the “golden rule”).

Matthew 7:12-15 KJV
(12) Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

If we fall “asleep” to this “rule”(forgetting to always do it), then the false prophets have power to lead us astray with their flattering lips (the “kiss” of Judas). They are leading MANY down the broad way to the destruction of their mortal flesh (“aging” and dying) as they take away the keeping of the “daily sacrifice” of the Lord out of our lives so that His life never appears in our outer mortal flesh giving us “eternal life” in the here and now.

(13) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
(14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

The false prophets prophesy “peace and safety” in their churches but it is never found among them.

(15) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

There is a “famine” of hearing the Word of Truth in their churches as they prophesy “peace” to those who come put food in their mouths by paying them to preach.

Jeremiah 14:13-15 KJV
(13) Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.
(14) Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
(15) Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

If we keep the “daily” sacrifice in our mortal bodies, then they have no power over us to lead us astray from the Way of righteousness (the narrow way that leads to eternal life in the here and now). But if we fall “asleep” and forget to keep His commandment to have love for one another, then they have their “hour” over us….that power of darkness that leads many astray down the broad way to the destruction of the mortal flesh.  They convince us that it is not about this life but all about “dying and going to heaven” when Jesus already died for us so that we may have His life in the here and now.

Luke 22:52-53 KJV
(52) Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
(53) When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Living proof that He is risen…

We must keep the “daily sacrifice” of our Lord in our body so that His life also might be made manifest (to shine) in our mortal bodies. His life is to be made apparent to this dark and dying world through us so that they may see the glory of the Lord. When He shall appear through us in glory, we appear also with Him in glory. His eternal life that He is experiencing already in heaven is to be made manifest in this earth in our mortal flesh which shows that He is truly alive. We are to be His living proofs that Jesus is truly risen and alive in heaven as His life appears through us by the keeping of His death in our mortal bodies.

2 Corinthians 4:10-11 KJV
(10) Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
(11) For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

But His eternal life is being taken away from this earth by men who are preaching for money’s sake as they mind earthly things: what to eat, what to drink, what to wear. They are leading many astray from the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice as they come in the footsteps of Judas to take away His eternal life from ever appearing in the mortal flesh of their followers. The “Son of man” ….the appearing of the life of Jesus in our mortal flesh…is being betrayed by those who preach for gain’s sake so that they may feed their bellies.  The Truth that Jesus is truly alive is being cast down to the ground by those who are preaching for their own bellies’ sake.

Matthew 26:24 KJV
(24) The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.

If we fall “asleep” to keeping His “daily sacrifice”, then they have power to come forth in the footsteps of Judas to take away the keeping of that death of Jesus in our bodies. They come forth with to take away His appearing life with a “kiss”…..the flattering lips of men who preach for money’s sake.

Luke 22:46-48 KJV
(46) And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
(47) And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.
(48) But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

They want us to join their congregations…..their churches…where no flesh is being saved as His life is being prevented from ever appearing in those who are being deceived.   The Antichrist denies that Jesus is coming in the flesh…our mortal flesh.  We must not keep company with them.

For yet a little while, He that IS COMING will come, and will not tarry.

Again, we are to be “followers together” of Paul and work with our own hands to support our own basic needs (food, drink and clothing).

Philippians 3:17-21 KJV
(17) Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

Without working at our own jobs outside of the church to take of our own needs, then we can not understand the Scriptures as the understanding is darkened. If we do not understand the Word of God in Truth then how are we truly feeding anyone? We are not feeding anyone but ourselves…literally.

The life of Jesus is to be made manifest in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life (that He is already experiencing in heaven) in this earth where we display His glory to this dark world. The Word is made flesh and the world shall see His glory. Yet, many are walking as they enemies of the cross of Christ who died for us and was resurrected so that we may have His eternal life NOW. The good news is being hid in the heart of the earth.

(18) (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

The enemies of the cross of Christ end is the destruction of their mortal flesh and they lead MULTITUDES down the broad way to their destruction from off this earth. Their “god” is their belly that they are preaching to feed. They are minding “earthly things” just like the outside nations: what they shall eat, drink and what they shall wear.

(19) Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

But those who believe have their behavior in heaven as they follow His commandments and look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ whose heavenly, eternal life shall be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

(20) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

He shall change our “vile” (humiliated by sin) body so that it may be fashioned like His glorious body.

(21) Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

We are not to be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord.

2 Timothy 1:8-10 KJV
(8) Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
(9) Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

He has abolished (rendered idle) death and has brought life and immortality (undecaying of the body) to light through the good news (gospel) for the here and now …..not the “here-after” as universally preached by all.

(10) But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

The unbelievers will hear and persecute those who will believe. We must not “draw back” unto our destruction because of those who will speak evil of us for believing these things. We are not to cast away our confidence which has a great recompense of reward.  We are to do the will of God and suffer for His sake by doing good in the face of the persecutions of the unbelievers (1 Peter 4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator).

Hebrews 10:35-39 KJV
(35) Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
(36) For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

We shall receive the promise:   the eternal life of Jesus whose life shall be made manifest in our outer mortal flesh giving us eternal life in this earth.

For yet a little while (during the time of our persecutions by the unbelieving “Christians”), He that IS COMING (present tense) will not delay for He shall appear . When His life appears in our mortal flesh, then we appear with Him in glory and no man shall be able to take away our joy.  The spirit of the antichrist denies that Jesus IS COMING in our mortal flesh and shall persecute us for believing but we are to live by faith.

(37) For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
(38) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

Our “soul” shall be tormented with the persecutions of others, but it shall be saved as well as His appearing life shall bring us exceeding joy of which no man can take away. There will be no more sorrowful soul because of the persecutions by unbelievers.

(39) But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

He has begotten us AGAIN unto a LIVING hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. We NOW have a LIVING HOPE that His life is to appear in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in the here and now.

Men have been preaching a “dead” hope as they say we have to first physically “die” and go to heaven.  They have missed the point entirely as Jesus came into this world so that we may have His life in this world.

1 Peter 1:3-9 KJV
(3) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Christ is already in heaven. His life is located in heaven (it is reserved for us already in heaven)…and we are to inherit His incorruptible and undefiled life that does not fade away in this earth. We are to display that Jesus is alive in heaven through His appearing eternal life in this earth. We are to be His living proofs that He is truly alive and IS RISEN from the dead.

(4) To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

We are kept in this earth by the power of God through faith unto salvation which shall be revealed in the last time where His life is revealed and gives us exceeding joy which no man can then take away.

(5) Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

But first, for a little while (season) we shall be sorrowful because of the persecutions that we shall receive from our own flesh and blood family and from our church family and from friends who do not believe. Our “enemies” shall be of our own household by those who are closest to us. They will not believe in what we believe and will  put us down and will want to argue with us that we are wrong in our belief.

(6) Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

Our faith shall be tested by them through the “fire” of their persecutions of us. Our souls shall be sorrowful because of them. We partake of His sufferings by their trial of our faith in which we do not return evil for their evil. We shall be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ as His life shall appear in our mortal flesh giving us eternal life in the here and now.

(7) That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

While we endure their persecutions for a “little while”, He that IS COMING will come and not delay. Even though we do not see him YET, we believe and rejoice in the partaking of His sufferings as we await His appearing which brings us glory (His appearing glory).

(8) Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

We shall receive the completion of our faith….even the salvation of our souls as our sorrowful souls shall be turned into exceeding joy of which none of the unbelievers who once persecuted us can then take away.

(9) Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

They…the unbelievers…shall rejoice in their unrighteousness towards us and our souls shall be sorrowful. But our sorrow shall be turned into joy when the Son is manifested in our outer mortal flesh. No man can then take our joy away with his persecutions.

John 16:20-22 KJV
(20) Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
(21) A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
(22) And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

The unbelievers shall try our faith in what we hear of Him. It shall be a “fiery trial” which shall try us.

1 Peter 4:12-14 KJV
(12) Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

But we are to rejoice in that by their persecutions of us we are made partakers of Christ’s sufferings. We keep the “daily” sacrifice of His death by dying to sin.

When His glory shall be revealed (as the Word is made flesh…in our mortal flesh), then we shall also be glad with EXCEEDING JOY. NO MAN can then take away our joy.

(13) But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
(14) If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

If we are truly risen with Christ, we are to seek those things which are above WHERE CHRIST SITS on the right hand of God.

Colossians 3:1-6 KJV
(1) If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
(2) Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
(3) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

We are to be dead to sin and believe that His life shall appear in due season in our mortal flesh. Our life is hid with Christ in God but it shall be made manifest and we shall appear with Him in glory….and the world shall see the manifestation of the sons of God.

(4) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
(5) Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
(6) For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

The “outer man” is the earthly lusts to behave in envy, strife, wrath, covetousness . The “outer man” must perish so that the inner man (our life that is hid with Christ in God) shall appear in due time.  We must MORTIFY (deaden) our members which are upon the earth.  We must not faint when we are persecuted but die to sin and not return evil for their evil.  We are to rejoice instead at their persecutions because we are then partakers of His sufferings and will be made partakers of His glory when He appears in our outer mortal flesh so that our enemies may see Him.

2 Corinthians 4:
(16) For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

The unbelievers shall test our faith in His life appearing in our mortal flesh….but that light affliction which shall give our souls some sorrow shall only be for just a “moment” and works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.  That “moment” is a “little while”….a “season” of persecution….but He that IS COMING will come and not delay.

(17) For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

The life of Jesus is not seen yet appearing in our earthly, humiliated-by-sin bodies…but we are to have hope for that unseen manifestation of His life that is coming.  He that IS COMING will come and not delay.

(18) While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

The times of refreshing shall come when He that is coming will come and not delay as His life shall be made manifest in our mortal flesh giving us exceeding joy.

Acts 3:18-21 KJV
(18) But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
(19) Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
(20) And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
(21) Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
