THE WORK OF GOD-21 ST CENTURY

Proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom of God Ministering to its Members scattered abroad Email: theworkofgod.21stcentury@gmail.com

MISSION STATEMENT

We Have One Sole Mission:

TO DO THE GREATEST COMMISSION IN ALL THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD

This covers well defined, clear, and simple things to do:

To Proclaim THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD again to all the peoples speaking different languages. To them who inhabit and dwell in different countries, nations, and nation- states. To proclaim it to their kings and monarchs, their top leaders in the Eastern Hemisphere, (Rev. 10:11).

To bring the EVERLASTING GOSPEL into these vast lands and continents, over many mountains, across oceans, and seas, from the space above, and the space below, (Mat 28:18-20; Mk 16:15-18; Lk 24:46-49).

To Preach, by the spoken word, the Good News of Christ’s return to establish the KINGDOM OF GOD (Mat 24:14), that will reign and rule the whole world from the eternal capital city of Jerusalem, (Jer 3:17; Zech 14:3-9; Obad 21; Isa 2:2-4).

To PUBLISH, by the written word, the Good Tidings of the end of this present evil world. And the beginning of the NEW WORLD coming (Mk 13:10; Isa 52:7), First for a thousand years. To restore the original GARDEN OF EDEN planetwide.

6

To be followed by the RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD, all rising into a worldwide PARADISE. And ALL to live for a hundred years. And then forever in the New Heaven and the New Earth. To spread to all the Universe, (Mark 13:10; Acts 3:21; Rev 5:10; 20:4; Isa 65:20; Rev 20:11-15; Rev 21:1-7).

To announce the arrival of the New Order of The Ages under the DIVINE GOVERNMENT OF GOD RULED BY THE KING of kings and LORD of lords, (Isa 9:6-7; Zech 14:3-9; Isa 2:2-4); assisted by 144,000 immortal kings and priests, (Rev 14:1). The Kingdom of God will rule over the remnants of the Great Tribulation and the 7 Last Plagues, one-tenth of the world’s population (Isa 6:11-13; 24:1-21; 26:19; Mat 24:21-22; Rev 6:4, 8; 8:11; 9:11, 15), who will be left alive, and considered worthy to be taught God’s Word, God’s Will, God’s Way, and do God’s Work, (Isa 2:1-4), and understand the deep things of God. All working together cheerfully and joyfully to build the civilization of the Millennium under God, to shine in truth and in righteousness (Isa 26:9), and in peace (Isa 32: 17-18).

To TEACH the pure WORD of GOD. To announce that the Good News of True Salvation is now being fully PREACHED and PUBLISHED among all the Gentiles. To bear the wonderful Good News that the door to the Gentiles has now been opened wide by the Captain of Salvation, the Author and Finisher of the Faith, the CHRIST of GOD, (Acts 14:27; 18:6; 28:28; Col. 1:27).

To make it known to them that their true hope is in CHRIST JESUS. To be PROCLAIMED to all of them without fail that the hope, and TIMES of the Gentiles is soon to be fulfilled, (Mat 28:19; Rom 11:11, 12, 13, 18; 15:16; Eph 3:6; 2 Tim. 1:11; Lk 21:24).

To finally make known, reveal, make crystal clear, that the ULTIMATE FINAL DESTINY OF MAN IS TO BE BORN AGAIN INTO THE GOD FAMILY AND KINGDOM, OF GOD, BORN OF THE SPIRIT, BORN OF GOD, IMMORTAL, ONE IN GOD, (Gen 1:26-27; Jn 3:3-21; Jn 17:21).

7

To carry the WARNING, and for it to be a WITNESS to these eastern nations.

To DECLARE the arrival of the PROPHESIED DISTRESS and TUMULT among the nations, (Col 1:28; Acts 1:8). That this shall be made intense by the arrival of the PROPHESIED worldwide DECEPTION, (Mat 24:4-5; 11:23-26).

To sound the trumpet and push the button of the alarms of WAR, even as the world is swamped with RUMORS OF WARS, (Mat 24:6-7).

To WARN and TELL to the peoples of the East that the FOUR HORSEMEN of the Apocalypse now rides with ferocious vigor. Their long journeys across the millennia beginning from inside of the GARDEN OF EDEN launched by the lying evil and wicked serpent,, and will soon climax in the destruction of the wicked one and his legions as evil and wicked, that old serpent Satan the devil and his deceived fallen angels, (Rev 6:2 {white}; 6:4 {red}; 6:5 {black}; 6:8 {pale}.

To announce the arrival of the prophesied EARTHQUAKES, of FAMINES, of PESTILENCES, and ALL THESE shall be the BEGINNING OF SORROWS, (Mat 24:7-8).

To warn of the presence of the prophesied FALSE PROPHETS, who, from among them, the many will look to as unto gods, (Mat 24:1, 23-28).

That the Work of God - 21 st Century, is now here. Having been raised by the Living Christ to commence the great beginnings of this phase of the Work of God. ”Because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth,” and for us His loyal servants, a short time to do it in, (Rom 9:28).

That we are NOT out to try to convince, NEITHER to forcibly try to convert anybody, or anyone, anywhere, anytime. Yet we must, as commanded by the Apostle and High Priest of our Profession, teach all men everywhere to repent for the remission of sins, and to do all things that Christ the Son of God has commanded us. (Mat 28:19-20; Lk 24:47).

8

That we earnestly teach and actively practice THE WAY OF PEACE, (Mat 5:9; I Tim 2:2; Jas 3:17). For the world lost knowledge of the way of peace (Rom 3:17; Isa 59:8).

That we enthusiastically TEACH and faithfully PRACTICE the Way to LOVE GOD with all our heart, our soul, and our mind, with all our strength, and with all our understanding, (Mat 22:37; Mk 12:30, 33; Lk 10:27).

That we sincerely teach, and continually practice THE WAY TO LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR AS WE LOVE OURSELVES, (Mat 5:43; 19:19; 22:39; Mk 12:31; Lk 10:27; Rom 13:9; Gal 5:14; Jas 2:8).

That we diligently teach and zealously practice HOW TO HAVE TRUE SUCCESS now in this time, and in the world to come, SPIRITUAL SUCCESS with EVERLASTING LIFE, (Mat 6:33; Mk 10:28-30; Jn 13:17; Isa 58:13-14).

That we seriously teach and lovingly practice turning back the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, (Mal 4:6).

That we gently, tenderly, patiently FEED and NOURISH SPIRITUALLY THE FLOCK for whom Christ The Redeemer, the Lamb of GOD died, and purchased with His own blood, (John 21:15, 16, 17; Acts 20:28; I Pet 5:2).

That we compassionately, mercifully, and so kindly HEAL THE SICK, (Lk 9:1,2; 10:9), when we encounter them as we go our way to proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

That we do practice pure religion undefiled before God and make visits and care for the helpless orphans, the fatherless, and the widows in their affliction, (Jas 1:27).

That we point to the nations and its peoples, and families, that the Eternal Creator God has left a window open for the blessing of health and prosperity to be known if they would be glad and sing for joy, and PRAISE THE GOD OF CREATION

9

for all His wonderful works! That they would learn to PRAY and PRAISE the Everlasting LORD, (Ps 67:1-7; Ps 147:1-20; 148:1-14; 149:1-9; 150;1-6; Mat 26.30; Mk 14.26; Eph 5.19; Col 3:16; Jas 5:13).

Ultimately, we have to open the minds of the multitude to the difference between the holy, and the profane, (Ezek 22:26; 44:23), to the end that we can turn many to righteousness, (Dan 12:3). Not by might, nor by power but by God’s Spirit, (Zech 4:6). For this is God’s Will. By His Word. On His Way. To fulfill His Work.

All these, to FEARLESSLY and COURAGEOUSLY PREPARE THE WAY for the return of the GREAT GOD, our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, King of kings, and Lord of lords, (Mat 24:14; Mk 13:10; Titus 2:13; Rev 17:14; 19:16).

THIS IS THE VISION THAT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST INSPIRES FOR THE WORK OF GOD – 21 ST CENTURY TO DO IN THE ENTIRE EASTERN HEMISPHERE.

THE WORK OF GOD-21ST CENTURY PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD MINISTERING TO ITS MEMBERS SCATTERED ABROAD

email address: theworkofgod.21stcentury@gmail.com

Dear Friend,

FOR TOTAL

ENLIGHTENMENT FROM THE ETERNAL CREATOR GOD OF THE

RECEIVE YOUR GIFT

OF

DIVINE

LIGHT

ENTIRE UNIVERSE.

HE DESIGNED THE WHOLE CREATION TO BE INHERITED BY THE HUMAN RACE. ALL THE HUMAN FAMILIES HAVE THEIR HERITAGE IN EVERYTHING THAT THE DIVINE MAKER OF ALL THINGS GOOD, BEAUTIFUL AND WONDERFUL EVER MADE. THE ALL MERCIFUL, BLESSED SOVEREIGN OF ALL THE WORLDS LOOKS AT OUR PLANET EARTH, HIS SHINING JEWEL ORBITING IN OUTER SPACE AROUND THE CREATED SUN. HE SEES NO BOUNDARIES ON ALL THE LANDS AND SEAS. HE SEES NO BLACK SKIN. NEITHER YELLOW. NOR WHITE. NOT ANY BROWN. HE CONSIDERS NO RACIAL DIVIDES. HE SEES NOT RICH MAN’S GOLD, NEITHER POOR MAN’S PENNIES IN THEIR HANDS. HE SEES NOT THE SCEPTRES AND CROWNS ON THE HEADS, NEITHER THE PLOWS AND SPEARS HELD BY THE ARMS. NONE IN ALL THESE THAT HE CREATED IN HIS IMAGE, IN HIS LIKENESS. HE LOOKS INTO THEIR HEARTS!

ULTIMATELY, THE SONS OF MAN, BORN OF WOMAN, WERE MADE TO BECOME THE CHILDREN OF GOD, THEY WERE MADE TO INHERIT, AND TO TAKE POSSESSION, OF ALL THE CREATED WORLDS, AND THEREAFTER, BY THE GRACE AND WILL OF GOD, ESTABLISH PEACE, AND SPREAD THE INFINITE BLESSINGS OF HAPPINESS AND JOY FOREVERMORE IN ALL OF THEM! BEGINNING WITH THE NEW WORLD SOON TO COME. SEE! IT IS JUST ACROSS THE NOT DISTANT HORIZON. THERE, LOOK, IT IS JUST AROUND THE BEND!

11

SO AMAZING, INDEED! FAR BEYOND AND SO WAY ABOVE ALL THAT THE CREATIVE IMAGINATIONS OF SCIENCE FICTION WRITERS COULD POSSIBLY VISUALIZE. BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS, IN INFINITY NO FUTURIST COULD EVEN BEGIN TO CONCEIVE: THE GLORY AND WONDER OF THE WORLD TO COME!

NO REVERED MYSTICS OF THE ORIENT, OF PROFOUNDEST DISCERNING, WOULD CONDESCEND TO EVER GLIMPSE INTO THESE EVERLASTING PROMISES AND VERITIES AS THE TRUE REALITY. NO PHILOSOPHERS OF THE WEST, OF MOST RESPECTED REPUTE AND KEENEST INTELLECT, COULD RATIONALIZE THESE UNDENIABLE ABSOLUTES. NO WORLD RENOWNED SCIENTIST OF SHARPEST ACUITY IN EVERY AGE COULD MEASURE NEITHER QUANTIFY, LET ALONE QUALIFY: THE AWESOME MARVELS OF THE MIND AND WISDOM OF GOD, HIS EVERLASTING MERCY, AND HOW, BY HIS WORD AND COMMAND, THE WHOLE UNIVERSE CAME TO BE.

THESE PIERCING INVISIBLE PRINCIPLES AND INVIOLABLE EDICTS, THESE DECREES AND EXPRESSIONS OF DIVINE WILL DRAWN FROM THE HOLY WRIT SET INTO THESE WORDS AND SPOKEN TO YOU ARE SPIRIT, AND THEY ARE LIFE.

THESE ARE SENT FOR YOU AND TO YOU. THEY SHALL NOT RETURN TO THE DIVINE AND HOLY ONE THAT SENT THEM EMPTY, NEITHER VOID. THE ORDAINED PURPOSE FOR WHICH THEY WERE SENT WILL BE FULFILLED. THIS IS THE INVIOLATE WILL OF GOD.

FINALLY, THE MEANING OF MEANING, WHICH ANSWER HAS BEEN SOUGHT FOR AGES, CAN NOW BE UNDERSTOOD. THIS, NO WALKING AVATAR BEFORE, TODAY, AND HEREAFTER EVER DID, AS CRYSTAL CLEAR, EVER LOGICALLY EXPLAIN, OR COULD, CONFIDENTLY, TRUTHFULLY PROCLAIM. NO SCHOLAR OF DEEPEST RESEARCH COULD THE GLORIOUS TRUTH EVER FOUND. NO HISTORIAN OF THE PROFOUNDEST BREADTH AND DEPTH COULD EVER FULLY UNDERSTAND AND TO ORDINARY LAYMAN EXPOUND, LEAST OF ALL: WHY HISTORY KEEPS REPEATING ITSELF: THE SHOCKING TRUE STORY OF HOW THE FAMILY OF MAN TURNED BACK AND DEPARTED FROM THE PRESENCE OF

12

GOD FROM THE BEGINNING AND WENT THEIR WAY. MAN’S PROUD WAY. MAN’S DEFIANT DUALIZED THOUGHTS FROM DUALIZED MINDS. MAN’S FLAWED, STUBBORN WILL. MAN’S VAIN WORKS. ALL UNDER THE SWAY OF SATAN THE DEVIL, FOR SIX THOUSAND YEARS. IN ALL ITS ENTIRETY. THAT IT MUST NOW COME TO AN END. TOTALLY UPROOTED. FULLY BURNED UP. AND THE 1,000 YEARS OF GLORIOUS CIVILIZATION UNDER THE ETERNAL CREATOR GOD AND HIS KINGDOM MUST SOON BEGIN!

THE HIGHEST HEIGHTS IN THE ENTIRE COSMOS TAUGHT BY THE MOST ACCOMPLISHED YOGI, THE ENLIGHTENED GURU, THE REVERED MASTER, THE HONORED EARTHLY PATRIARCHS OF ALL RELIGIOUS FAITHS, THE FOREMOST NEW AGE UTOPIAN DREAMERS. THE WORSHIPPED SHAMANS, HAVE THEIR LIMITED CORRESPONDENCE OF THE MIND AND SPIRIT ROVING AND REVOLVING IN THE MYSTICAL AND SECULAR REALM AND FAINT LIGHT OF THE SURROUNDING CREATED EXISTING COSMOS. ALL OF THESE WHO HAVE LED MANKIND FOR SIX THOUSAND YEARS SEE THE COLLECTIVE RESULT. THE FINAL BOTTOMLINE. THE REPEATING CYCLES OF THE RISE AND FALL OF CIVILIZATIONS WITHOUT FAIL. YOU SEE IT YOURSELF. BLESSED ARE YOU, FOR ALL OF THESE HAVE LONGED TO KNOW AND SEE WHAT YOU NOW READ AND HOLD IN YOUR HANDS, AND COULD NOT, AND HAVE NOT!

FOR THESE ARE DELIVERED FROM ABOVE BEYOND THE DEFINED BORDERS OF THE CREATED UNIVERSE. NOW REVEALED, AND MADE KNOWN FROM THE DIVINE DIMENSION OF UNAPPROACHABLE LIGHT WHERE THE EVERLASTING GOD DWELLS.

NOW ALL THESE TERRESTRIAL HIGH THINGS MUST CEDE AND YIELD TO THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD WHICH UNVEILS THE FULL PANOPLY OF THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD AND THE GLORIOUS HEAVENLY TRUTH THAT SETS MAN FREE. FREE FROM SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY. LIBERATED FROM SPIRITUAL BONDAGE BY THE WICKED ONE, “THE GREAT DRAGON…THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND SATAN, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD,” (REV. 12:9, 10; 20:3, 10).

13

READ THIS THEN. SKIM IT NOT.

REREAD IT. SLOWLY, IF YOU WILL. AT YOUR OWN PACE.

FOCUS FOR A TIME. ONE PART AT A TIME.

MEDITATE ON THESE IN YOUR MORNINGS.

CONTEMPLATE ON IT AT NOON.

DWELL UPON THESE IN THE EVENTIDES.

THEN LINK THEM UP FOR THEY FIT PERFECTLY WELL.

THEN YOU WILL SEE THE WONDERFUL WHOLE.

THERE IS NO TIME LIMITATION.

THERE IS NO ONE TO PUSH YOU ON.

AND DO PRAY. THE ANCIENT PROPHET DANIEL, ERSTWHILE PRESIDENT OF ALL THE GOVERNORS OF THE KINGDOM OF BABYLON, UNDER KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR, OF THE GREATEST EMPIRE IN HISTORY, PRAYED THREE TIMES A DAY. IT WAS THE KEY TO HIS AWESOME SUCCESS. YOU, ALSO, COULD.

NOW IT IS IN YOUR HANDS. IT IS YOURS. CHERISH IT AS UNTO A TREASURE PRICELESS BEYOND COUNTING. FOR NOW, THE TRUE RICHES AND THE SECRET OF IMMORTALITY IS IN YOUR HANDS, IT HAS ARRIVED IN YOUR LIFE. AT LAST! NOW SEIZE IT. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER LET IT GO!

THE GIVER OF LIFE AND LIGHT SENDS THIS DIVINE BEAM. THIS SACRED FIRE. THIS HOLY TORCH. TO ENTER YOUR MIND'S EYE. INTO YOUR INNERMOST BEING. INTO THE WHOLE FABRIC OF YOU, A LIVING SOUL. FOR YOUR INEVITABLE UNDERSTANDING. AT YOUR OWN PACE. ONLY BETWEEN YOU AND HiM. IS THIS NOT WONDERFUL?

WHEN THE TIME AND MOMENT OF YOUR ILLUMINATION COMES, YOU WOULD KNOW. FOR THE TOTAL BRIGHTNESS IN YOUR

14

SPLENDID VISION OF LIFE AND THE SPIRIT MAGNIFIES AND EXPANDS BEYOND MEASURE. FOR NOW IN
SPLENDID VISION OF LIFE AND THE SPIRIT MAGNIFIES AND
EXPANDS BEYOND MEASURE. FOR NOW IN THIS TIME IT WILL
FILL YOU. YOUR SPIRITUAL VESTMENTS ARE NOW IN YOUR
HANDS. YIELD. WEAR IT INSIDE OF YOU. PUT IT ON OUTSIDE OF
YOU! YOUR SPIRITUALLY DEAD STATE QUICKENS AT THAT

HAVE NEVER KNOWN.

PREFACE

The amazing story of mankind is stored in a big part in

the storied chronicles of the churches of mankind. Whether they be in quaint little villages. Charming towns. Cities of whatever size and configuration.

There the churches have been formed. From the proverbial mustard seed, in most cases. And they grew in size and form along with the growth and size of their place of residence and locale. In many, there are but a few churches, and small number of members. In a few, there is the one dominant big church of numerous members, surrounded by low- profile other churches with different names, and small numbers of members.

The traditions of men have been cultivated and formed in the churches originally formed. Homegrown, these traditions are loved. The people in them stick to them, and protect it with their lives and fortunes. Thereby, they hate, and are repelled by, tradition-breakers.

29

The traditions they derived from their sacred scriptures are kept by them with much awe. Much reverence. With fidelity. And loyalty. The tradition they received from their forefathers. That went down from generation to generation. The latter are held in cultic affection. They live and die for these traditions.

And so the saying: “What’s good enough for my father, and his father before him. is good enough for me.”

They have traditionally wedded their homegrown traditions with the faith they believed was derived from their holy scriptures that they have agreed to use. Whether personally, or as a church. As an assembly, or a congregation, of like-minded believers in the worship of their chosen deity, god, or gods

They have embellished their assemblies, presided by their chosen religious leaders. They are seen garbed in extraordinary vestments, that seems holy to them. They carry out their religious services with solemn rites and emblems. They intone memorized prayers in numbers of times. They use organs played with solemn sounds. With lofty notes of music. With stirring hymns.

30

So, beware, if you would be one who would dare! Your MESSAGE AND THE TRUTH YOU BEAR AND BRING OUGHT TO BE, AND MUST BE, THE REAL TRUTH. Lest you come in bearing nebulous doctrines. And cause to fall many to the ditch of spiritual confusion and destruction.

This duality is intrinsically, even tacitly, believed and retained, in all the churches.

They devised this dichotonomous arrangement. For they live as mortals, flesh and blood, born of women. The demands and necessities of their continued survival, their being, and their living, forced them to do so. They learned, over time, how to master this dual skill, almost schizophrenic approach in their mind and being.

For is not man a reasoning, thinking one (animal, to vocal evolutionists and majority of published scientists. Human, to majority of the others)?

Religion and church are intertwined from way back in ancient times.

The community of believers throughout the ages generally fellowship with each other, particularly those that share the same body of beliefs, and traditions.

31

Hence, the arising and existence today of myriad denominations called churches.

{Today’s freedom of religion, attained with the sacrifice, blood, sweat, and tears of those who bravely fought for it in the religious wars, has its blessings and upside. The downside comes when the believers are misled and deceived by charismatic men who profess to be chosen by God. The long term harm this kind of false teachings by false teachers, however sincere, is incalculable}

They diverged over time. They were influenced by dominant personalities who imposed their claimed revelations. Their claimed visions. And men looking for leaders and a hope that comes with it, went and followed these. They gave this, or that, one their allegiance. Their devotion. Along with their fortune. They were deceived by

They were swept by these militant charlatans, pied pipers, and verbose speakers. Swept by their charisma. Spellbound by their thespian talents.

Over time, as they became multitude, they became adversaries. Each side willed to impose their persuasions to others.

They went and formed different manners of worship, and believed in myriad gods. These insisted their god is God. And they adapted nomenclatures to establish their different identity from the others, now competitors and rivals.

IS THERE A ONE TRUE CHURCH?

There could only be one Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. And He built His Church. This be the household of GOD.

It has been two millennia. His Church has been persecuted thru all that twenty centuries. Continual hateful, vicious, violent attempts to extinguish it has come, and gone. And will return. Till the very return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The adversary, Satan, the devil, that old dragon, never stops. Along with his wicked minions.

Espionage and infiltration has been used.

33

Pre-meditated takeover, and watering down of all the true doctrines of God, even denying them altogether, has been made.

The Church that Jesus, the Christ of God, built, thru the truly faithful and true believers and practitioners of good courage, carries on. Though the spiritual path remains narrow, and few be they that were willing to walk therein.

He said: “The gates of hell (DEATH, GRAVE) shall not prevail against it,”, (Gospel Book of Matthew 16:18-19). IT DID NOT. AND IS ALIVE TODAY!

THE WONDERFUL STORY MUST BE TOLD

THIS SACRED GOLDEN SCROLL SERIES IS THE AMAZING, REALLY SPELLBINDING, TRULY ENLIGHTENING STORY OF THE TRUE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, AND OF CHRIST.

THE STORY WAS NOT DONE IN A CORNER. AS A MATTER OF FACT, ALL HISTORY IS WITNESS THAT THE ONE WHO FOUNDED AND BUILT THE CHURCH OF GOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS PUBLICLY HOUNDED, FALSELY ACCUSED, OPENLY TORTURED, MADE TO CARRY A WOODEN CROSS. AND FINALLY HANGED, SHED HIS PRECIOUS LIFEBLOOD, AND DIED IN THE SIGHT OF MEN AND WOMEN WITNESSES, ON CALVARY, A HIGH PLACE OF ROCK IN JERUSALEM.

34

THE DETERMINED ADVERSARY OF GOD’S HEIRS OF SALVATION, CALLED SATAN. THE INVISIBLE DEVIL, AND HIS MALIGNANT, SIMILARLY INVISIBLE, DEMONS AND WICKED SPIRITS,, HAVE CEASELESSLY TRIED TO EXTINGUISH THE SPIRITUAL BODY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AS HE HAS CAUSED HIS PHYSICAL BODY TO BE MURDERED AND HANGED ON A TREE, A ROMAN CROSS, ON CALVARY.

THE GOD OF HEAVEN NOW SPEAKS TO BRIGHTLY SHINE, TO MOST POWERFULLY RADIATE THE ILLUMINATING LIGHT OF THE TRUTH OF THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, THE PILLAR AND BULWARK OF THE TRUTH, TO ALL THE PEOPLES OF THE EASTERN HEMISPHERE.

There is fellowship there. Other fellow human beings are there. A congregation of like-minded believers are there. There, friendships are made. Families get together. Weddings celebrated. Fond memories are remembered. Essentially, most everyone believes that salvation is obtained or received thru the church.

IS THIS TRUE? THAT THEY MUST JOIN A CHURCH?

CAN YOU JOIN THE TRUE CHURCH OF GOD?

Today, there are hundreds of millions of human beings, two billion plus, all told, who profess the Christian faith, and are called Christians. Christianity, as a religion, is embraced by more than one third of mankind, All these profess the Name of Jesus Christ.

37

All these claim to the worship of, and allegiance to, GOD.

And about two-thirds of the religious of mankind are connected thru the bloodlines of the patriarch Abraham, father of many nations, called the father of the faithful, (Epistle to the Romans

4:16-18).

THE BOOK IN TWO VOLUMES

This Sacred Golden Scroll Series XCI Is a big book of twenty four truth-laden chapters. So it will come in two volumes.

There are two levels of the Church of the Living God:

1. The VISIBLE congregation, composed of mortals, born of woman, flesh and blood. They bear the NAME OF THE FATHER:

GOD. SO Church of God. Christ asked His Father so, (Gospel Book of John 17:11). Yet they are the churches of Christ, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 11:16).

First Part, or Level 1 – The physical listed members who bear the SIGN: SABBATH KEEPING, or they are called Sabbath KEEPERS. And TEN COMMANDMENTS KEEPERS. THAT IS THE LETTER OF THE LAW.

Second Part, or Level 2 – The Spirit of the Church of the Living God, pillar and ground (bulwark) of the truth. They live in, by, and with, the Spirit of the Law of Love, because they are baptized, laid- hands on Spirit-begotten, converted, children of God, (Book of Acts 6:6; 8:17).

are subject to them, and their names are listed – written in heaven,

(Gospel Book of Luke 10:20), as they written in the Book of Life, (Epistle to the Philippians 4:3).

> They are not self-righteous, neither vain, about their calling and

profession, but dwell among the earth’s inhabitants, their neighbors and fellowmen, in true humility, in a spirit of harmony.

> They never give the impression that the rest of mankind is left

out, condemned to everlasting hell. Such an idea is absolutely untrue. Most certainly ungodly. A deceiving lie by deceived persons, unscrupulously passing out deceitful, diabolical, cruel lies and doctrines of devils.

For God our Saviour wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, (First Epistle to Timothy 2:3-4). God wants everyone everywhere to repent.

The truth is revealed in this Sacred Golden Scroll.

39

> They seek to

be of helpful service to them continually. They live in the righteousness of God. They abide both by the visible, codified letter, and in the spirit, of the Ten Commandments of God (LOVE), (Books of Exodus 20:1-17; Deuteronomy 10:13; 10:4) which are holy, just and good, (Epistle to the Romans 7:12). They are, indeed,

a peculiar people, in the true meaning of the word, as the Holy Scriptures so defined, (Book of Deuteronomy 14:2; 26:18; First Epistle Peter 2:9).

THIS DEFINES AND BARES THE IDENTITY, AND THE

MEANING, OF

THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY,

(Epistle to the Ephesians 3:9).

They become the spiritual congregation of the saints, spirit-begotten, children of God, and led by the Spirit of God, hence, sons of God, recipient of the Spirit of adoption, (Epistle to the Romans 8:14-15).

THEY WERE ALIENS IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL.WITHOUT HOPE. WITHOUT GOD IN THE WORLD. THEY WERE NOT PART OF THE COVENANTS OF PROMISE.

> They carry the sign that they are GOD’s people, and that GOD is their God, and that is the SEVENTH DAY SABBATH, (Books of Exodus 31:13, 17; 20:8; Leviticus 19:3, 30; of the prophet Ezekiel 20:12, 20).

> And the Annual SABBATHS, The Feast Days of The LORD. (Book of Leviticus 23:1-4). Which they faithfully observe and joyfully keep, either as individually, or in joint fellowship of the Church of the Living GOD. Week after week. Year after year. For all their lives, as they draw breath.

THE SUBJECTS – ALL THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH ARE JUST AS WEAK AND UNFULFILLED. MADE TO PURSUE GOALS AND RUN AFTER EMPTY DREAMS. ALL VANITY, AND RUNNING AFTER WIND.

So as they remember to observe and keep the Sabbaths, WEEKLY, AND TRI-ANNUALLY, of God, these became emblazoned in the believer and practitioner’s heart and mind, and whole being. A fulfillment of God’s promise of a new covenant with the spiritual commonwealth of spirit-begotten Israel (composed of both spirit- begotten Jews and Gentiles) that He will write His Law of Love written in their hearts in the end of days, (Book of the prophet Jeremiah 31:33; Epistle to the Hebrews 8:10).

44

> THESE ANNUAL SABBATHS AND WEEKLY SABBATHS ARE FEAST DAYS OF THE LORD ORDAINED FROM CREATION WHEN THE ETERNAL GOD PLACED THE SUN AND MOON IN THEIR FIXED ORBITS AS DIVINE MARKERS OF TIME AND CYCLICAL SEASONS OF THE DIVINE FESTIVALS OF THE LORD GOD FOR MANKIND, (Book of Genesis 1:14).

*seasons – Strong’s # 4150 Heb. >> mowadah >> an appointed time, feast (appointed), (place of)) solemn assembly, festival, congregation, meeting convened for a definite purpose.

The LORD God revealed to the people of Israel, whom He took out of Egypt from their slavery for 450 years, thru His human instrument Moses, what those FEAST DAYS OF GOD ARE in the Book of Leviticus chapter 23.

The Lord Jesus Christ came from heaven and made manifest in to a human being, flesh and blood, born of a woman, the virgin Mary. He kept those Feast Days, together with his twelve disciples, whom He later turned into his twelve apostles. He came to set the example to them. To the end that His believers, followers and practitioners of the Faith He once delivered to them, may FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS, (Gospel Book of John 13:15; First Epistle of Peter 2:21).

Outwardly and inwardly, the SIGN BETWEEN GOD AND HIS PEOPLE becomes permanently established, and ratified, so to

45

speak. IT SINKS INTO THE INNERMOST BEING. INDELIBLE. ENGRAVED. It becomes part of their nature, not second nature. Keeping and observing His perfect spiritual laws of love and commandments which are holy and good becomes automatic, and all done in perfect, joyful attitude, obedience, and enthusiasm.

> LIVING FAITH AND SPIRIT-LED GOOD WORKS become the twin enabling spiritual power with, and by, which the steadfast believer and active doer may attain and receive the spiritual power to grow, comprehend, and to come to attain to the spiritual dimensions of length, of depth, of height, and of width, (ref. ch. 1:18), together with the saints; and finally, to know and experience the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you, the believer and practitioner, may be filled with all the fullness of God, (Epistle to the Ephesians 3:18-19), unto a perfect man, to attain to the measure of the stature, of the fullness of Christ, (Eph. 4:13).

MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE CHURCH

56

You hear believers say: “They go to church.” Or,

church”.

They went to

And so it is generally, and traditionally, believed that they enter their building of worship as the church. As proclaimed on the outside of the building, the name of their church is drawn, either

with sculpted letters in metal, bronze or wood, or etched, engraved,

or painted. Hence, their place of worship is taken for granted as “the church.”

The right and correct way is to say: “They went to worship services.” (Of the Church).

It really matters to be right about this issue.

When did those errant practices and traditions begin? It is quite foggy when men try to look back to find out thru the dim mists of yore and ancient time. What is practiced today are modern innovations and added accepted ways that seemed pleasant, in the process of time.

To many others, over time, their particular church became as to an exclusive club. An exclusive social gathering. And so, it came to be. And in these practices, they became smug. And slowly adopted worldly practices.

A religious leader in the large bloc of protestant believers observed

sadly: “WE HAVE NOT OVERCOME THE WORLD. WE WERE OVERCOME BY THE WORLD.”

THE WAY TO WORSHIP ACCEPTABLE TO GOD

57

The New Testament Church of God worshipped in the FORMAT of Fellowship and Worship Services in the Congregation attended by:

> Saluting, or greeting, one another with a holy kiss, (Epistles to the Romans 16:16; First Corinthians 16:20; Second Corinthians 13:12; First Thessalonians 5:26; Kiss of charity: First Peter 5:14). > Fervent Prayers. with all supplications, (First Epistle to Timothy 2:1; 5:5; Epistle to the Hebrews 5:7). They PRAY, AND LIFT UP THEIR HOLY HANDS WITHOUT DOUBTING, (First Epistle to Timothy 2:8). Luke 23:34; Ps 134:2

> Singing of soulful

stirring, uplifting, ennobling Hymns, (Epistles to the Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16).

Psalms, vibrant Spiritual Songs of Praise, and

> With the skillful Playing and Use of Musical Instruments, (see their names: Book of Psalms 149:3; 150:3, 4, 5).

> Interactive Communications of revelations, in an orderly

decent manner, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 14:26).

and

> Consistent, continual PRAYERFUL Reading, and diligent Spirit-

guided Study, of the Holy Scriptures. Like the Bereans did, who studied, and searched the Scriptures daily, if these things were so,

(Book of Acts 17:11).

> And sincere Preaching by serving trained teachers (not novices,

neither neophytes), and service-oriented, able ministers who are

grounded in the Faith and in the Holy Scriptures. They who labor in deep love for the everlasting Gospel, and the holy brethren.

58

ALL THESE are conducted for the edification of the Body, the Church of God, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 14:40).

(Note: Clap your hands, Shout unto God with the voice of triumph, (Book of Psalms 47:1); Dance is mentioned in the Book of Psalms

149:3).

THE CONGREGATION OF THE CHURCH, OR CHURCHES, OF GOD ARE ENJOINED TO ASSEMBLE IN WORSHIP SERVICES AND FELLOWSHIP.

23 “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering;

(for he is faithful that promised;)

24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good

works;

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the

manner of some is, but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching,” (Epistle to the Hebrews

ch. 4:14; 1 Cor 1:9

10:23-25).

IT STARTED FROM THE EARLIEST DAYS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST:

50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. Acts 1:12

51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from

them, and carried up into heaven. Mark 16:19

52

And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great

joy.

Mat 28:9

53

And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God.

Amen., (Gospel Book of Luke 24:50-53) Acts 2:48

59

THERE IS NEVER ANY VESTIGE OF FAMILIARITY. ALWAYS OBERVED WITH JOY AND FERVENT ZEAL.

If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given to you ward: 3 How that by revelation He made known unto me the mystery;…4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ. 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of the

61

promise in Christ by the gospel. 9 And to make known what is the FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY, which is from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: 10 To the intent that now unto the principalities, and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,” (Epistle to the Ephesians 3:3-10).

WHY ARE THERE MANY DIFFERENT CHURCHES ON EARTH TODAY?

As many as the churches are, so is the story why and how they started, many, and long.

It is in the nature of things that human beings are divided into types and kinds.

FOLLOWER.

THE

And the leading kind. THE LEADER, “THE ONE”, as he is often tagged in media and religious literature.

So long as there are followers who would rather follow someone, just to sit back, and relax, there will always be a leader, or leaders. Leaders who are supposed to lead by work, and example. Not merely to have and to use the power of authority and command. And end up using selected scriptures to collect money from the followers and supporters.

The principle is true in the story of the Church. And over time in the churches.

62

IT HAS COME DOWN TO THESE

The words and texts of the Holy Scriptures, or the Holy Bible, are claimed to be the unexpurgated source of the articles of faith and practice of their particular church.

A catch phrase here. A compound of words there. A single word in that. Then a church is born. Just like that! It becomes silly, indeed. For from then on, these latch on to their particular word phrase as their banner slogan. IT IS MAKING THE HOLY CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD CHEAP, AND DRAGGED DOWN TO INSIGNIFICANT, COLLOQUIAL LEVELS. EVEN IRRELEVANT.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY ANY OF THESE. THESE NEVER-DO-WELLS BLASPHEME GOD’S VERY NAME AND DIVINE MAJESTY. HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THESE.

63

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

Chapter Two

NEVER AN IDLE WORD

36 But I say unto you, “That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be

condemned. (Gospel Book of Matthew 12:36-37).

Sanctify them thru thy truth: thy word is truth,” (Gospel Book of

John 17:17).

> It is important now to realize that all religious doctrinal falsehoods, masquerading as Truth, but are lies, are idle words. Every religious leader who proclaims false gospels, which are idle words, will be held accountable before God in the Day of Judgment. They are indicted by these very declaration of the Creator of the human race, The Captain of salvation, the Author and Finisher of the Faith, (Epistle to the Hebrews 2:10; 12:2; Gospel Book of John

1:1-2).

> “Whatever is not of faith is sin,” (Epistle to the Romans 14:23). Whatever it is that is not according to the Faith once delivered to the saints, are practices of sin! This condemns false religious faiths and man-invented lawless and faithless religious practices and traditions.

64

THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT THEY WERE DOING

Then said Jesus, “Father forgive them, for they know not what

they do, (Gospel Book of Luke 23:34).

He came to die for the redemption of mankind. To heal the human race. Afflicted by all manner of physical diseases and its complications, and every type and kind of psycho-somatic disorders. In their inner man, in their mind, heart, and spirits: Every, and all, manner, of spiritual afflictions. including demon possessions, and serious demon influences. The latter not being recognized by human physicians and learned doctors.

> Why did mankind need to be redeemed?

The answer lies before that time of the need for humanity to be redeemed.

> When GOD created the perfect and beautiful earth, it was not

meant to be ruined. It was created to be inhabited. That original Earth was to be the dwelling place of mortal inhabitants who will live, and later die, and later live by a resurrection from the grave, to live forever in immortality.

Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?

CONSEQUENCES OF SIN, BORNE OF IDLE WORDS, IN THE HERE AND NOW

All of the family of man burdened by the duality of their nature, passed on to them from their first progenitor: the knowledge of good and evil. Truth and error. Every time evil prevails in their actions, they sin.

66

Every time their thoughts in error cause them to commit deeds of disobedience, they sin. Every time they sin, death comes hanging heavier over them.

“Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers hath transgressed

against me, (Book of the prophet Isaiah 43:27).

ADAM, THE FIRST CREATED MORTAL, FLESH AND BLOOD, AND PHYSICAL FATHER AND PROGENITOR, OF ALL LIVING, SINNED AGAINST THE ETERNAL CREATOR GOD. IN THE BEGINNING, IN ONE MOMENT IN TIME AFTER HE WAS CREATED.

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES REMAIN SILENT AS TO WHETHER HE REPENTED, OR NOT.

ALL THE TEACHERS OF MEN THAT AROSE THROUGHOUT ALL THE GENERATIONS OF MANKIND TILL TODAY HAVE TRANSGRESSED AGAINST GOD. WITHOUT EXCEPTION. THEY HAVE ALL TAUGHT BOTH IDLE WORDS OF ERROR, UNWITTINGLY, OR WITTINGLY, MIXED WITH FACTS AND TRUTH, TO THEIR EAGER STUDENTS, (Epistle to the Romans 5:14).

WERE THEY SINCERE?

YES, BUT SINCERELY DECEIVED.

YET, IN THE LAW IT IS WRITTEN, “IGNORANCE OF THE LAW EXEMPTS NO ONE FROM COMPLIANCE THEREWITH.” AND THIS TRUE.

67

(Books of Leviticus 4;2; 5:15; 4:13; Book of Acts 3:17, 19;

17:30).

He came to redeem the created mortals, born of women, flesh and blood from that condemnation. Every one of them condemned under the penalty of death, (Epistle to the Galatians 3:22).

> ONLY THE ACCEPTABLE REDEEMER AND HIS

PRECIOUS BLOOD SACRIFICE CAN DO THAT FOR ALL OF THEM THAT WERE EVER BORN, AND ALL THAT EVER DIED, ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. IT IS THE ONLY ONE TIME SACRIFICE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD, (Epistle to the Hebrews 10:12, 14; 11:4).

ONLY THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THE LAMB, WHO WAS GOD, AND BECAME A MAN, CAN BE ACCEPTABLE TO

GOD, (Gospel Book of John 1:1). “And without controversy great is the mystery of Godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory,” (First Epistle to Timothy

3:16).

THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THE PASSOVER LAMB IS SACRIFICED FOR THE DISCIPLES OF CHRIST, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 5:7).

All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, (Epistle to

the Romans 3:23; 5:12). The wages of sin is death,” (Epistle to the Romans 6:23).

THE ROOT OF SIN

68

WHAT IS THE ROOT OF SIN?

HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN?

WHEN THE FIRST COUPLE PARTOOK OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL.

THEN THE KNOWLEDGE OF EVIL TOOK ON A HEAVIER WEIGHT IN THE PROCESS OF TIME.

KNOWLEDGE OF EVIL MADE AND INDUCED MEN TO COMMIT SIN.

SIN UPON LAYER AND LAYERS OF SIN WAS THE NET RESULT.

“SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW,”(First

Epistle John 3:4).

SIN

COMMANDMENTS

ARTICLES OF THE LAW. THE LAW OF LOVE.

IS

THE

BREAKING

OF

OF

THE

THE

TEN

CODIFIED

GOD,

GOD IS LOVE.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE THE TEN COMMANDMENT OF LOVE.

WHEN EVER ANY MAN OR WOMAN BREAKS THAT COMMANDMENT OF LOVE, THE RESULT IS SIN.

69

SIN IS DESERVING OF THE PENALTY OF DEATH.

DEATH IN THIS PHYSICAL LIFE IS EITHER DIRECT DEATH THAT COMES UPON THE SINNER, BY HIS BREAKING THE LAW OF LOVE. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD. THE AUTOMATIC PENALTIES FOR TRANSGRESSIONS OF THE LAW OF LOVE BRING PHYSICAL DEATH. LIFE BECOMES SHORTER. STRESSES AND PSYCHOSOMATIC PROBLEMS THAT ACCRUE BRINGS ILL HEALTH. THE PERSON DIES, NOT IN PEACE, BUT UNDER DURESS, ANGST, PAIN, DISTRESS. DISEASES COME OUT TO AFFLICT THE BODY. DEATH FOLLOWS. UNREPENTED SIN ULTIMATELY BRINGS SPIRITUAL DEATH.

WHEN REPENTED OF, SINCERELY, WITH SINCERE GRIEF, GOD FORGIVES. FORGIVENESS OF SIN HEALS THE BODY, AS WELL.

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

Chapter Three

THE MYSTERY OF THE CHURCH BUILT UPON THE ROCK

In the fifth chapter of the Gospel Book of Mathew, the Lord Jesus Christ went up into a mountain, whereon His disciples came unto Him. There He taught them, and opened the profoundest truth of the Christian calling for their deep understanding:

“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell

not: for it was founded upon a rock.” (Gospel(Gospel(Gospel(Gospel BooksBooksBooksBooks ofofofof MatthewMatthewMatthewMatthew 7:247:24-7:247:24--25;-25;25;25; LukeLukeLukeLuke 6:476:47-6:476:47--48).-48).48).48).

THE FOUNDATION OF THE CHURCH OF GOD

71

JESUS, THE CHRIST OF GOD, BUILT THE CHURCH OF GOD UPON HIMSELF, THE ROCK.

In His prayer to God His Father, before His moment of supreme sacrifice and death, in the hands of men He created, by Roman crucifixion, He enjoined the Father to KEEP IN GOD’S NAME those the Father has given to Him. Hence, the Churches of Christ are kept in the Name of God: CHURCH OF GOD, (Gospel Book of John 17:11; Epistle to the Ephesians 3:15). The Church of God is the Household and Family of God on earth, (Epistle to the Ephesians 2:19; 3:15). Gal 6:10

In twelve places in the Holy Scriptures, (ten in God’s, and two in Christ’s), the Name is revealed:

> “Feed the church of God, (Book of Acts 20:28).

> “To the church of God which is at Corinth, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 1:2).

> “Give none offence,,,, to the church of God,” (ch 10:32).

> “Or despise ye the church of God,” (ch 11:22)

> “I persecuted the church of God,” (ch 15:9).

> “We have no custom, neither the churches of God,” (ch 11:16).

>“Care of the church of God,” (First Epistle to Timothy 3:5;

> “church of the living God,” (Ch. 3:15).

72

> “Called churches of Christ, “ (Epistle to the Romans 16:16).

> “I persecuted the church of God; (Epistle to the Galatians 1:13).

He is THE SPIRITUAL ROCK upon which His Church was founded, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 10:4). Ex 17:6, Num 20:11, Ps 78:15 SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, THE CHURCHES OF CHRIST, SO BELIEVE.

A FUNDAMENTAL BUILDING PRINCIPLE TO FOLLOW

MOREOVER, CHRIST DISCLOSED THE KEY PRINCIPLE THAT EVERY BELIEVER AND PRACTITIONER MUST FOLLOW IN BUILDING: IN ESTABLISHING HIS OWN BLUEPRINT FOR HIS PERSONAL LIFE-BUILDING. THE OTHER IN BUILDING HIS OWN HOUSE.

IF HE BE A SERVING SERVANT OF CHRIST IN A CHURCH, HOW TO BUILD THAT BRANCH OF THE SPIRITUAL BODY UNDER HIS CARE

73

IF THE BUILDER DOES, ALL ELSE WILL FOLLOW IN SMOOTH FLOW. LIKE CLOCKWORK REGULARITY.

GOD AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, THRU THE POWER AND GUIDANCE BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, WILL SEE TO THAT.

CHAOS AND FAILURE FOLLOWS DEVIATION AND DISOBEDIENCE

It is really quite simple.

The law of cause and effect in operation in the created universe, and reduced from the biggest, largest size, thru, and to, descent to the lowest quantity. Even to the multi-cellular, sub-atomic level. And from the utmost volume and mass to the smallest equation. The Law of Cause and Effect follows, and is applicable, in all these.

Primary example: Gravity pulls all men down, so men are all earthbound, Gravity is the cause. The going down is the effect. It is inevitable. Inviolate. A fixed principle in the created universe. Set in motion by the Eternal Creator GOD. We see this on terra firma, the earth that all men, born of women, flesh and blood mortals, dwell in.

It is quite important to understand.

THE HIGHEST VALUE TO REACH AFTER

Life is not all technical equations, numbers. And now, in the 21 st

century,

digits. Not in-depth analysis. Uninvolved evaluation and

74

factual research with charts and figures galore. Not endless information gathering and ultimately, information overload!

Modern 21 st century man has fallen into the trap. Competition. Survival. “Must win at all costs” motto and mantra. The rat race. Stress. Anxiety. Withdrawal into self-protection, and loss of trust of others is the result. Crafting of firewalls from intrusion in to his private world and personal universe, his well-guarded space. VERBOTEN TO OTHERS. Forbidden. Intrude NOT. Such tragedy. The SYSTEM has done in the human person, flesh and blood, born of woman.

Coldness. Hardness. ‘Who cares?’ Unfeeling. Dispassionate. Uninvolvement. Men turned to all these to mask himself. For self- protection. Self-preservation in an evil and cruel, merciless environment: the world, as it has now become.

THIS IS IN THE EXTREME.

IT IS GOING TO GET WORSE AND WORST IN THE END OF DAYS.

ALL THESE >>> MEN OUGHT TO BE

Feeling and emotions attend the entire range of the business, and conduct, or vice-versa, of life.

Passion and intensity must attend activities that men do. Capacity to care. Willingness to show and share affection. Compassion is primary in communion with suffering mankind. With one’s neighbor. Willingness to reach out and touch the lives of others, and

75

to be mutually touched, as well. It is never really a one way street, but two, and mutual. And so it never dries and never dies.

LOVE, above all. In the Greek, not just Eros, Neither philia.

The former and the latter, both being physical and material, will pass away into the night, so to speak. As the saying goes, fade into the sunset, And perish from the thoughts and memory of men. The fire and the passion will die down. Much, ought and must be, in overflowing agape, spiritual love, which never dies. It is everlasting, above all else.

Agape that will endure for all eternity.

Love that is shared and given. The more you give it away, the more you have it. Such a beautiful paradox. Meant to be known. Meant to be experienced by every one.

Erstwhile they are insensate. Devoid of true feeling. Bereft of true humanity. Robbed off of mercy, kindness, goodness, beauty, and truth.

All facts and knowledge, particularly head knowledge, are granted to be true. Yet IF devoid of the beating, stirring, pulsating heart, No passion and feeling, Turned inert. It is “not a life worth living, to paraphrase an ancient philosopher.

Robots, albeit functioning machines, equipped with mechanical memory, software and electronics, and can move as if it were human, emit computerized sounds and light, are nothing but inorganic, metallic, feelingless fabrications. Yet made with accurate dimensions and proportions, and high-sensitivity sensors, are just that: robots. They are man-made machines.

76

Man must never turn to be like his fabricated robots. That would be an awful tragedy. The ultimate tragedy, in fact. “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THEM…”

Members of the Church of God, the spiritual Body of Jesus Christ ought to live by THE REDEEMING WONDERFUL POWER OF LOVE, quickened by the Holy Spirit, the power of the Highest. This is totally warm and spontaneous. Given, shown, and shared with utmost, profound feeling and complete sincerity with one’s fellowman. THEY BECOME THE FOREMOST EXAMPLE OF SPIRITUAL HUMANITY. Warm. Compassionate. Courageous. Bold. Kind. Gentle. Tender. Generous. THAT IS THE TRUE SPIRITUAL BEAUTY, TO THE ATTAINMENT OF WHICH, AND TO WHICH, A TRUE BELIEVER AND PRACTITIONER OF THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED, MAY ASPIRE.

TO THE CHAPTER OF LOVE

THE FIRST EPISTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS, ALL OF CHAPTER THIRTEEN SAYS IT PEREFECTLY WELL: READ IT. AND TAKE IT TO HEART WITH MUCH PRAYER AND SUPPLICATIONS. FOR DEEP UNDERSTANDING. AND ULTIMATELY, ZEALOUS APPLICATION.

First Corinthians 13

Chapter of Charity (LOVE)

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.

77

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.

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.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

78

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

COMPASSION WITH, AND IN, HEALING WAS THEHALLMARK OF CHRIST’S MINISTRY

The Eternal Creator GOD dealt with His created mortals with loving kindness:

35 “And they remembered that God was their rock, and the

high God their redeemer.

36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they

lied unto him with their tongues.

37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they

steadfast in his covenant.

38 But he being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and

destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away,

and did not stir

39 For he remembered they are but flesh, a wind that passeth

away, and cometh not again,” (Book of Psalms 78:36-39).

up

all

his

wrath.

15 But thou, O LORD, art a God full of compassion, and

gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth,”

(Book of Psalms 86:15).

4 “He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered; and the LORD is gracious and full of compassion,” (Book of Psalms

111:4; 112:4; 145:8).

79

The Lord Jesus Christ showed the way in his recorded dealings with mankind.

36 “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with

compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered

abroad, as sheep having no shepherd,” (Gospel Book of

Matthew 9:36).

34 “So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes,

and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed

him, (Gospel Book of Matthew 20:34).

39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee,

and cast out devils.

40 And there came out a leper to him, beseeching him, and

kneeling down to him, And saying unto him, ‘If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.’ 41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him. ‘I will; be thou clean.’

42 And soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy

departed from him, and he was cleansed. (Gospel Book of Mark

1:39-41).

12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold there

was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she

was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.

13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and

said unto her, ‘Weep not’.

14 And when he came and touched the bier: and they that bare

him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.’

ch 8:54; John 11:43

80

15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he

delivered him to his mother. 16 And there rose a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, ‘That a great prophet is risen up among us; and that God hath visited his

people, (Gospel Book of Luke 7:12-15).

THE DISCIPLES OF CHRIST ARE COMMISSIONED TO PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HEAL THE SICK

1 ‘THEN HE called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

Mat 10:1; Mark 3:13; 6:7

2 And he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God, and to heal

the sick, (Gospel Book of Luke 9:1-2). Mat 10:7, 8

5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them saying, ‘Go

not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not.

ch 4:1, 5; 2 Ki 17:24; John 4:9

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

7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at

hand.

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils:

freely ye have received, freely give,”

Luke 9:2; ch 3:2; Luke 10:9

(Gospel Book of Matthew 10:1, 5-8).

IF YOU ARE SICK, CALL FOR THE ELDERS OF THE CHURCH

PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN ANOINTING WITH OIL THE SICK

14 “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, 15 and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Is. 33:24 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, (Epistle of

James 5:14-16).

HEALING OF SPIRITUAL AFFLICTIONS

Emotional Depression. Terrible stress.

13 “Is any among you afflicted?

let him pray. Is any merry?

let him sing psalms, (Epistle of James 5:13)

> GOD CREATED THE POWER OF HYMNS, PSALMS, AND SPIRITUAL SONGS TO HEAL WOUNDED HUMAN MINDS AND HEARTS.

82

> HE INSPIRED THRU THE HOLY SPIRIT THE

WRITING OF THE PSALMS. THE WRITING BY MEN OF

PURE HEARTS THE WRITING AND COMPOSITION OF SPIRITUAL SONGS AND HYMNS THROUGHOUT THE ROLLING CENTURIES, IN EVERY GENERATION OF BELIEVER AND PRACTITIONERS OF THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED.

> THE GOD OF HEAVEN CREATES MOMENT BY

MOMENT MIRACLES OF INSPIRATION AND UPLIFTMENT IN THE HEARTS AND BEING OF MEN AND WOMEN IN THE DEPTHS OF SORROW/ DESPAIR. HOPELESSNESS. PAIN. EMOTIONAL PAIN. MENTAL DEPRESSION. WHEN EVER THESE BEAUTIFUL HYMNS, PSALMS, SPIRITUAL SONGS ARE SUNG. WHENEVER THE WORDS ARE SUNG. WHENEVER THE MELODIES OF THE

LYRICS TAKES WINGS. WHEN EVER THE SOUND OF MUSIC TAKES THESE THAT HEAR AND LISTEN TO THEM IN RAPT ATTENTION TO HEAVENLY HEIGHTS UNSEEN AND CELESTIAL DELIGHTS UNKNOWN. HEALING OF THE STRICKEN HUMAN HEART, MIND, AND BEING TAKES PLACE MIRACULOUSLY. JOY RETURNS TO THE HUMAN HEART, MIND, AND BEING.

> FERVENT BELIEVING PRAYER MUST COME

TOGETHER WITH THE SINGING OF THE HYMNS.

PSALMS. AND SPIRITUAL SONGS.

BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED. (Book of the prophet Isaiah 3:5; First Epistle of Peter 2:24).

83

INVOKE IN PRAYER FOR HEALING BY HIS SHED BLOOD OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THE LAMB. HEALING IS FORGIVENESS OF SINS, (Epistle of James

5:15)

WHENEVER CHRIST HEALED, HE SAID: “YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN.” (Gospel Books of Mark 2:5-11; Luke 5:20-

26).

FAITH IN CHRIST BRINGS HEALING, (Gospel Book of Luke 7:1-10).

COMPASSION OF CHRIST FOR A WIDOWED MOTHER WHOSE SON LAY DEAD BROUGHT THAT DEAD SON BACK TO LIFE, (Gospel Book of Luke 7:12-15).

HEALING IS A DOCTRINE OF GOD. HIS OFFICE IS AS THE HEALER. THE DIVINE PHYSICIAN. THE CHURCH OF GOD ADOPTED THIS DOCTRINE.

“I AM the LORD that HEALETH thee,” (Book of Exodus

15:26).

“Bless the LORD O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; whowhowhowho healethhealethhealethhealeth allallallall thythythythy

diseases,diseases,diseases,diseases, (Book of Psalms 103:1-3). Ex. 15:26; Deut. 7:12-15; Ps. 130:8; Is. 33:24; Jer. 50:20

84

ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH, IT SHALL BE DONE UNTO THEE

13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, ‘Go thy way; and as thou

hast believed, so be it done unto thee.’ And his servant was healed in

the self same hour,”(Matthew 8:13).

SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. GOD HEALS ABSOLUTELY.

RAISE THE DEAD. THE PHYSICALLY DEAD THE SPIRITUALLY DEAD

3 Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? 4 Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘Go and show John again

those things which you do hear and see:’

5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are

cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have

the gospel preached to them,’ (Gospel(Gospel(Gospel(Gospel BooksBooksBooksBooks ofofofof MatthewMatthewMatthewMatthew 11:311:3-11:311:3--5;-5;5;5; LukeLukeLukeLuke 7:22.7:22.7:22.7:22. Mat.Mat.Mat.Mat. 10:8;10:8;10:8;10:8; Is.Is.Is.Is. 29:1829:18)29:1829:18)))

THE MISSING ELEMENT IN THE RELIGION OF THE JEWS

23 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you pay tithe and mint and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and

85

faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the

other undone,” (Gospel Book of Matthew 23:23).

RELIGIOUS LEADERS, SUCH AS THOSE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES, AND THEIR MODERN COUNTERPARTS, ARE DEEP IN THE ENFORCING OF INFLEXIBLE RULES AND STERN REGULATIONS THAT STIFLE SPIRITUAL GROWTH. CHRIST REBUKES THEM FOR SUCH.

ANY MAN, GROUP OF MEN, OR CHURCHES OF MEN WHO PROFESS GODLINESS, OR FAITH IN GOD, AND CHRIST, OR TO INVOKE THE NAME OF GOD, OUGHT TO REMEMBER THIS. ONLY THEN CAN THEY EVEN BEGIN TO SAY THAT THEY KNOW GOD AND GOD KNOWS THEM.

“BE YE HOLY FOR I AM HOLY” HOW?

Listen, mortals, and read what the Divine Creator proclaimed unto you:

44 “Ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 45 For I am the LORD that bringeth you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I

am holy,”(Book of Leviticus 11:44-45).

86

THIS IS THE LAW OF THE CLEAN AND THE UNCLEAN MEATS. THE FOOD LAW. THE SEPARATION AND DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE CLEAN AND THE UNCLEAN MEATS TO EAT, AND NOT TO EAT. IN MODERN LANGUAGE, IT IS CALLED “THE DIETARY LAW”. THEY ARE DESCRIBED IN FULL AND DETERMINATION IN THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS CHAPTER ELEVEN.

THESE ARE NOT MERE LAWS FOR PHYSICAL GOOD HEALTH. AS GOD PROCLAIMED. ALTHOUGH THEY ALSO ARE. FOR ALL HUMANITY. FOR ALL MANKIND, BORN OF WOMEN, FLESH AND BLOOD, FOR ALL TIMES. VALID FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING FROM DAY ONE OF THE CREATION OF MAN, TO EVERY MAN AND WOMAN, TILL THE RETURN OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. AND ON IN THE MILLENNIUM. IN THE 100-YEAR OF JUDGMENT.

HIS HOLINESS IS UPON YOU IF YOU DO NOT ALLOW YOUR NATURAL PHYSICAL BODY TO INGEST AND DIGEST, THEREBY INCORPORATE INTO YOUR BODY SYSTEM, WHICH IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, TO BE DEFILED WITH AND BY, WHAT THE ETERNAL CREATOR PRONOUNCES AS UNCLEAN. AND DECLARED BY THE DIVINE CREATOR AS ABOMINATION UNTO YOU. GOD MADE IT A POINT TO MAKE IT SO CLEAR, AND UNMISTAKEABLE. IT TAKES FAITH TO BELIEVE AND PRACTICE THIS FOOD LAW. WITHOUT FAITH, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD.

THE VISION OF PETER AND WHAT IT REALLY MEANT

87

10

“And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while

they made ready, he fell into a trance.

11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descended

descended unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four

corners, and let down to the earth.

ch/7:56; Rev. 19:11

12 Wherein all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth,and wild

beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

13 And there came a voice to him, “Rise, Peter: kill, and eat.”

14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord, for I have never eaten any thing

that is common, or unclean,”

15 And the voice spoke to him again the second time, ‘What God

hath cleansed, that call not thou common.”

ver. 28

16 This was done thrice; and the vessel was received up again into

heaven.

17 Now while Peter doubted in himself what the vision, which he

had seen, should mean.

The apostle Peter recounted the vision to the apostles that were in Jerusalem.

IN CONCLUSION, they then realized that God had granted repentance unto life to the Gentiles also. That, henceforth, they were not to be called unclean, and common, (Book of Acts 10:10- 17; 18—47; 11:1-18).

The apostle Peter, at that point in time, was long past the time when Christ was with them in His days in human flesh. This proves that they were taught that the Food Laws were always in effect. That the

88

first Christians knew and lived by the Food Law of Leviticus chapter eleven.

WHAT COLOSSIANS 3:16 REALLY MEANT

16 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink,

or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days.

17 Which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is

of Christ.

Heb. 8:5

The Colossian Christians were new converts in the true faith once delivered to the saints. They were Gentiles in times past, (Epistle to the Ephesians 2:11). When they commenced in their practice of the Faith, and lived in the Way, as they were taught by the original apostles, their neighbors, who were practitioners of the heathen and pagan ways, and who ate anything they could lay their hands on without any distinction whatsoever, jeered at them. They laughed at them. They judged them.

When they observed and kept the weekly holy Sabbath day, the seventh day, and the tri-annual Sabbath days, and the Holy Feast Days of God, their unconverted neighbors and the unbelievers around them, persecuted them, and judged them.

The apostle Paul, Christ’s chosen apostle to the Gentiles, and then to the former Gentiles, now converted brethren in the Church of the Living God, wrote the above epistle to them, The brotherhood is their witness, and to each other, before God. Thereby, the world outside of the brotherhood can not therefore judge them, (Epistle to the Colossians 2:16, 17-23).

89

The doctrines of devils believed by the unbelievers forbids to marry, and commanded to abstain from meats, especially on their determined particular days, which God has created, and commanded to be received and eaten with thanks giving, of them WHICH BELIEVE AND KNOW THE TRUTH, SANCTIFIED BY THE WORD OF GOD, AND WITH PRAYER, (First Epistle to Timothy 4:1-5).

The Book of Leviticus chapter eleven pronounced the type of clean meats to be eaten, and considered for FOOD. They were sanctified. Set apart. By these very word of God. ONLY THE BRETHREN BELIEVED AND KNEW THE TRUTH.

Chapter Four

WHAT TRUE RELIGION IS ALL ABOUT

26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, ‘To visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, and to keep himself

unspotted from the world,” (Epistle(Epistle(Epistle(Epistle ofofofof JamesJamesJamesJames 1:261:26-1:261:26--27).-27).27).27). Ps.Ps.Ps.Ps.

34:1334:1334:1334:13

The endless, useless wars and conflicts men engaged themselves in prematurely, and forcibly, removed fathers, brothers, sons, and other kindred men folks from the communities of man. Many other fatal causes inflicted on similar men folks left a terrible void.

The world is so much poorer in the forced demise of male leaders, husbands, fathers, and providers for families.

This left behind grieving widows. Helpless orphans. Multitude of fragile fatherless children in the world of the living. Deprived of the steady and strong guiding hand of fathers and breadwinners.

91

The yawning void in the lives of widows and fatherless children produces so much pain and sense of loss, as well as a sense of direction and purpose. A vast chasm of emptiness in the lives of them who were left behind. Of these that the ever Merciful and Loving God cares for, so that He set His Will for them in sacred Scriptures. The rudder by which these families are moving on in the world is missing. God their Father would will that void be filled by those who would profess to practice the religion God approves of, and consider to be true.

THE GOD OF HEAVEN looks down from His Everlasting Throne of mercy and loving kindness, and sees all of these.

He decrees that every one who confesses the true Faith once delivered must remember all these mortals bereft of husbands and fathers. To remember them with mercy and loving kindness as God does.

To take time, and space, in their work-a-day lives and in their prayers and thoughts on behalf of them.

Surely, if they do, they would be on God’s side. And God blesses them who choose to come on His side for these.

92

THE FOUNDATION OF THE DOCTRINES FOLLOWED AND KEPT BY THE CHURCH OF GOD

God is Love. God is Light. God is Full of Compassion. Mercy. Justice. Faith. Truth. Vision. Hope. Christ is The Life. Christ is The Truth. Christ is The Way. Christ is the Resurrection.

ON NO OTHER FOUNDATION THAN FROM THESE MUST THE BELIEVER AND PRACTITIONER OF THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS BUILD HIS SPIRITUAL LIFE AND BEING

11 “For other foundations can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ,”

12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold,

silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire;

93

and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it

is.” First Epistle to the Corinthians 3:11-13).

ALL DOCTRINES PROCEED FROM THESE. FROM THEM PROCEED THE DRINK OF LIVING WATERS FOR THOSE WHO THIRST. THE LIVING BREAD FOR THE HUNGRY IN THEIR HEART.

MAN MADE A SERIOUS MISTAKE IN CRITICALLY ANALYZING GOD. RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS, INCLUDING ZEALOUS RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND TEACHERS DO NOT UNDERSTAND. GOD IS A DIVINE SPIRIT. NOT TO BE ASSIDUOUSLY ANALYZED, INCLUDING CRITICALLY. NOT TO BE DIGITALLY

98

ANALYZED, OBSERVED, AND MEASURED, EVEN DISECTED, UPTO TO THE CELLULAR AND ATOMIC LEVEL.

THE REALM AND THE NON-VISIBLE, NON-PHYSICAL, NON-MATERIAL, DIMENSION OF THE SPIRIT IS ONE OF LIVING ABSOLUTE BELIEVING FAITH. ON ONE’’S KNEES IN ALL YIELDEDNESS AND HUMBLENESS MUST ONE READ THE SCRPTURES ON GOD. THEN THE GOD OF HEAVEN WILL BE PLEASED TO OPEN HIS MIND TO UNDERSTAND.

2 For all these things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been,” saith the LORD: ‘but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at

my word,” (Book(Book(Book(Book ofofofof IsaiahIsaiahIsaiahIsaiah 66:2).66:2).66:2).66:2).

MEN END UP BEING UNBELIEVERS. SKEPTICS. PROUDLY CYNICAL. THEY ARE GIVEN OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND, INSTEAD.

PROUD, INTELLIGENT, BRAINY MORTALS BEGIN TO BE PUFFED UP. IN THE VANITY OF THEIR MINDS, EVEN IN THEIR HEART OF HEARTS, THEY THINK THEY CAN DISCOVER GOD. THEIR ENDLESS RESEARCH BRINGS THEIR MINDS UPTO A CEILING SOMEWHERE IN THE VOID. AND LIKE A CRYSTAL THAT BREAKS. NOT INTO UNDERSTANDING, BUT TO THE FORBIDDEN REALM OF THE MIND WHERE PRIDE AND VANITY DWELLS. THIS LEADS TO CONCLUSIONS SET IN STONE. INTO DOCTRINES IMPOSED UPON “LESSER” OTHERS. SUCH WAS

99

LUCIFER’S, “PERFECT IN BEAUTY AND WISDOM” SYNDROME, ( Books of the prophets Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel 27:3; 28:2-3, 12-15; 29:3, 17).

IT BECOMES EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TO HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS WHEN THESE “DOCTRINES” BECOME THE “DOCTRINES AND CREEDS ADOPTED BY POWERFUL RELIGIOUS CONCLAVES AND COUNCILS.” AND ARE THEN IMPOSED UPON THEIR FOLLOWERS TO BE BELIEVED AND PRACTICED.

GOD REVEALS HIMSELF.

BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, GOD REACHES AND CONNECTS TO THE CARNAL HUMAN MIND.

IT IS NOT FOR MEN TO RESEARCH HIM, IN-DEPTH, AS THEY CALL IT TODAY.

IT IS FOR MEN TO SEEK HIM THAT HE MAY HE MAY WORSHIP AND SERVE HIM. NOT TO INVESTIGATE HIM. THOSE WHO DO ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE. LIKE AN AUTOMATIC LAW THAT GOD HAS SET IN MOTION.

THEY ARE LONG DEAD AND TURNED TO DUST THOSE THAT BLASPHEMED AND DENIED GOD. FORGOTTEN IN THE BANISHED GARBAGE HEAP OF HISTORY.

CHRIST GAVE UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCRIPTURES

unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms concerning me. Ver. 6

45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might

understand the scriptures,” (Gospel Book of Luke 24:44-45).

THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME DIVINE BEING WHO BECAME MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, A HUMAN IN FLESH AND BLOOD, BORN OF A VIRGIN,, JESUS THE CHRIST. THE WORD WHO WAS IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD. THE WORD, HE WAS GOD, GOD WITH GOD, (Gospel Book of John 1:1; Epistle to the Hebrews 1:5, 8).

WHEN HIS EARTHLY MISSION OF 33 ½ YEARS WAS OVER, HE ASKED GOD THE FATHER TO RESTORE HIM TO THE GLORY HE HAD WITH THE FATHER IN THE GODHEAD (New Testament)-Elohiym (Old Testament) BEFORE THE WORLD WAS.

BACK TO BEING GOD IN THE GODHEAD WITH GOD THE FATHER, (Gospel Book of John17:5).

‘SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES.” HE COMMANDED, (Gospel

Book of John 5:39).

46 “For had you believed Moses, you would have believed me, for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye

believe my words?” (Gospel Book of John 5:46).

MOSES WROTE MOSTLY ABOUT THE LORD. YHVH. YAHWEH, JEHOVAH. EL SHADDAI. THE “I AM”, YET JESUS CHRIST STATED THAT MOSES WROTE ABOUT CHRIST, (Gospel Book of John 5:46). SO MOSES WAS WRITING ABOUT THE CHRIST, SO WRITTEN ABOUT IN

107

THE NEW TESTAMENT IN GREEK, NAMED LORD, JEHOVAH, YHVH IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES, WRITTEN IN THE ORIGINAL HEBREW.

CHRIST in Greek: Christos. Yashua. JESUS

Son of David, Son of man. Son of God. I AM, Savior. The WORD. Alpha and Omega.Bright and Morning Star. Daystar. The Lord. Only Begotten Son. The last Adam. Son of man. Son of God. Lamb of God. Savior., Great God. Captain of our Salvation. Author and Finisher of the Faith. Teacher. Master. My Lord. My God. Mediator between God and man. Apostle of our Faith. High Priest. Cornerstone. Redeemer. Emmanuel. The Way. The Truth. The Life. The Resurrection.

Messiah. Emmanuel.

THE ONLY SCRIPTURES AT THAT TIME WERE THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES.

THE NEW TESTA,MENT, WRITTEN IN GREEK, BY THE APOSTLES, AND PAUL, CHRIST’S APOSTLE TO THE GENTILES, WERE IN SCROLLS AND LETTERS READ TO THE CONGREGATIONS OF THE EARLIEST CHURCH OF GOD. THEY WERE PUT TOGETHER UNDER THE INSPIRATION OF GOD TO BECOME THE APPROVED CANON OF NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES:

16 “Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples,” (Book

of the prophet Isaiah 8:16).

WHEN JESUS, THE SON OF MAN, THE SON OF GOD WAS ON EARTH WITH THE HUMAN RACE 2000 YEARS AGO, HE REVEALED AND SHED LIGHT ON THE GODHEAD.

108

HIS REVELATION AT THAT TIME TO THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS OF THE JEWS UPSET THEM. TO THEM, THE ONE TRUE GOD MEANS ONE DIVINE BEING AND PERSON. JEHOVAH, YHVH IS HASHEM AS THEY CALL HIM TODAY. THE TRUTH OF ELOHIYM BEING THE GODHEAD WITH MORE THAN ONE MEMBER IS BLASPHEMY TO THEM.

TO US, IT IS ENLIGHTENMENT, FOR IT SET ARIGHT A WHOLE UNIVERSE OF MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT GOD:

> 1. IN THE GODHEAD, IN Elohiym, WHEREIN THEY ARE ONE, (Gospel Book of John 10:30), GOD THE FATHER IS GREATER THAN THE SON WHO IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. WHO WAS JEHOVAH/YAHWEH/YHVH/LORD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT. JESUS THE CHRIST, WHO IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, IS THE LORD, THE ROCK, YIELDS TO THE ANCIENT OF

DAYS, GOD THE FATHER (‘Not my will, but thy will be

done,(Gospel Book of Luke 22:42)

“My Father is greater than I.” (Gospel Book of John 14:28b).

> 2. GOD THE FATHER, THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, HAVE NOT SHOWN HIS SHAPE, NEITHER MANKIND HEARD HIS VOICE.

> 3.THE ELDERS OF ISRAEL SAW GOD. MOSES SAW GOD. THEY HEARD THE VOICE OF THE ANGEL SPEAKING FOR GOD. SO THEY SAW THE GOD OF ISRAEL, JEHOVAH/YAHWEH/LORD/THE ROCK. WHO IS THE GOD THEY SAW?

109

WHY, OF COURSE, THE GOD WHO MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH. JESUS, THE CHRIST OF GOD.

“IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD. THE WORD WAS GOD,” (Gospel Book of John 1:1).

26 “AND GOD* SAID, ‘LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR

IMAGE, AFTER OUR LIKENESS: (Book of Genesis 1:26). (*GOD – (Strong’s # 430 >> heb. elohiym >> plural of eloah (a god, the Deity, God), singular in use, plural in sense, more than one; gods in ordinary sense; (God, gods); a compound unity. There is more than one member, or person, in the Godhead, in Elohiym.

GOD THE FATHER IS THE SUPREME ARCHITECT OF ALL CREATION YHVH/JEHOVAH/YAHWEH/THE LORD JESUS CHRIST/ THE SON OF GOD IS THE BUILDER OF ALL CREATION THRU THE HOLY SPIRIT (THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST)

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing

made that was made, (Gospel Book of John1:1-3).

8 “But unto the Son he saith, ‘Thy throne O God is for ever and

ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

110

9

Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God,

even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

10 And, thou Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the

earth; and the heavens are the work of thy hands,” (Epistle to the

Hebrews 1:8-10)

GOD THE FATHER CHOSE NOT TO SHOW HIMSELF TO THE PHYSICAL WORLD OF HUMAN BEINGS. HE GAVE THAT RESPONSIBILITY TO THE OTHER PERSON IN THE GODHEAD>>>> YHVH. HE SENT HIM TO DO IT ON THIS VERY PLANET EARTH.

GOD THE FATHER IS SO HOLY THAT HE HAD NOT CHOSEN TO BE IN TOUCH WITH MAN, MADE FROM THE DUST.

THE GOD WHO BECAME FLESH AND BLOOD JESUS, HAD COME FACE TO FACE WITH THOSE HE CREATED. HE HAD TO CONFRONT AND ENDURE THE CONTRADICTION OF SO MANY SINNERS AGAINST HIMSELF, (Epistle to the Hebrews 12:3).

BECAUSE IT WAS SO, THE WORLD OF RELIGION MADE DEEP, PROFOUND, EXTENSIVE, STUDIES AND LONG YEARS OF RESEARCH, WROTE, AND PUBLISHED THEIR AUTHORITATIVE OBSERVATIONS AND CONCLUSIONS ABOUT GOD. AND FINALLY, THEY CONCLUDED: GOD IS A TRINITY. THREE PERSONS CO-EQUAL. EQUAL IN RANK. AND CELESTIAL DEGREE. BECAUSE “GOD IS ONE IN THREE.”

111

“Ever searching and never able to come to the knowledge of the

truth, (Second Epistle to Timothy 3:7).

GOD IS NONE OF THE SORT.

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHO CAME FROM HEAVEN STATED THAT HE ALONE KNOWS GOD THE FATHER, AND THE FATHER, HIM. AND JESUS, ALONE, CAN TALK ON THE TRUTH ON GOD THE FATHER, WHICH HE DID, (Gospel Book of Matthew 11:27).

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT GOD. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST. THE POWER OF THE GODHEAD. (Gospel Book of Luke 1:35).

LIMITATIONS IN THE HUMAN LANGUAGE AND EXPRESSION COULD ONLY DESCRIBE THE HOLY SPIRIT AS GOD’S ESSENCE. GOD’S AGENT. HIS POWER. THE POWER OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.

GOD, THE SUPREME GOD IN THE GODHEAD, AND OVER ALL, REVEALS HIMSELF, IN THIS SACRED GOLDEN SCROLL SERIES XCI.

HE WOULD NOT ALLOW HIS TRUE IMAGE AND TRUE BEING, TO BE MANIPULATED BY PICKY, PICAYUNISH FLESH AND BLOOD MORTALS, AND CARICATURED IN THEIR MINDS AND UNDERSTANDING OF HIM WHO MADE THEM. THEIR PUBLICATIONS CLAIMING FULL AUTHORITY TO REVEAL HIM DOES NOT HAVE APPROVAL OF GOD THE FATHER. NOT BY JESUS CHRIST WHO ALONE KNOWS HIM.

112

THAT APPROVAL CAN ONLY COME FROM JESUS CHRIST, WHO ALONE SPEAKS FOR GOD THE FATHER. HE HAD IT WRITTEN IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES:

NO MAN KNOWS THE FATHER –

(Gospel(Gospel(Gospel(Gospel BookBookBookBook ofofofof MatthewMatthewMatthewMatthew 11:27)11:27)11:27)11:27)

WAS THE GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT FORMED?

113

WAS THE ANCIENT OF DAYS ALONE AS THE GOD IN THE GODHEAD – IN ELOHIYM – BEFORE JEHOVAH/YAHWEH/ YHVH?

FIRST OF GOD’S CREATION - WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN? 14 “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write:

‘These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God,” (Book of Revelation 3:14).

‘AMEN >>>is Jesus Christ >

Jesus Christ is the

spiritual Rock (1

Cor 3:10), the Rock is YHVH /LORD/Yahweh/Jehovah/the Eternal/ >>>> is the God with GOD (The Father) >>>> is the God of the Old Testament>>>>who was the Creator in the Beginning (Gen 1:1, John 1:1).

QUESTION:

Was YHVH who became Jesus Christ CREATED?

The confusion, debates, and arguments running to and fro, back and forth, even among the leaders of major religious organizations, and front-ranked religious scholars, circa 2000-2010 goes on.

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHO WAS THE ROCK (First Epistle to the Corinthians 3:10), WHO WAS THE YHVH, REVEALED, IN THE ONLY INTIMATE CONVERSATION / COMMUNICATION BY JESUS CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD, TO GOD THE FATHER, IN THE GOSPEL BOOK OF JOHN 17:1-26, particularly verse 15:

114

“AND NOW, O FATHER, GLORIFY THOU ME WITH THINE OWN SELF WITH THE GLORY THAT I HAD WITH THEE BEFORE THE WORLD WAS.” Phil. 2:6; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:3

“ Glory that I had with thee … Glory of God with GOD >>>> before the world was – BEFORE CREATION >>>BEFORE THE BEGINNING>>>>BEFORE GENESIS 1:1, AND JOHN 1:1>>>>BEFORE TIME BEGAN--- THE God WITH GOD was there. No beginning. No father. No mother. Liveth forever from eternity to eternity. HE WAS IN ELOHIYM. HE WAS God WITH GOD IN THE GODHEAD.

YHVH WOULD ANSWER THE QUESTION RAISED FOR MORE THAN A THOUSAND YEARS ABOUT WHETHER CHRIST WAS CREATED BEFORE HIS HUMAN BIRTH, WHEN HE WAS THE ROCK, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 10:4), THE SAME YHVH OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, IN THE BOOK OF JOHN 17:5, AND TRIGGERED BY THE BOOK OF REVELATION 3:14 IN ITS TRANSLATION INTO THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE BY TRANSLATORS OF THE AUTHORIZED KING JAMES VERSION, AND SEIZED UPON BY SCHOLARS AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS TO MEAN CHRIST, BEFORE HIS HUMAN BIRTH, WAS FORMED AND CREATED.

HE NOW SITS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, ANEW, RESTORED TO, AND IN, THAT POSITION AND GLORY OF DIVINE AUTHORITY, WHICH HE HAD WITH THE FATHER IN THE GODHEAD, EVEN BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF CREATION AND TIME. AND HAVING THE FULL TRUST AND CONFIDENCE OF GOD THE

115

FATHER, AND ONENESS WITH HIM. NOBODY. NO OTHER GOD, SITS BESIDE HIM, EVEN AS HE SITS BY THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF GOD THE FATHER – THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, ON HIS THRONE IN HEAVEN. NO GOD OF HIS AUTHORITY AND POSITION IN THE GODHEAD WILL EVER BE FORMED, CREATED, OR MADE, (Books of Psalms 1:1, 5; Acts 2:33; 7:55; Epistle to the Hebrews 1:13).

NO ONE, NO OTHER GOD, SITS BY HIS SIDE IN THE GODHEAD, WHERE GOD THE FATHER SITS SUPREME RULER ON HIS EVERLASTING THRONE.

THOSE WHO INTRUDE BY INTRUSIVE HUMAN INQUIRY, VANITY, AND PROUD CURIOSITY, INTO THE DEEPEST SECRETS OF GOD, THE GODHEAD, WHICH BELONGS TO GOD, ARE IN GRAVE PERIL OF LOSING THEIR PRICELESS SPIRITUAL LIBERTY GRANTED BY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, SUPREME GOVERNOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH. LEST THEY BE TURNED OVER INTO A REPROBATE MIND, PARALLEL TO LUFICER’s, INTO SATAN, THE DEVIL.

29“THE SECRET THINGS BELONG UNTO THE LORD OUR GOD: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law,”

(Book of Deuteronomy 29:29).

THOSE WHO WILL BE BORN AGAIN INTO THE GOD FAMILY, WILL BE MADE MEMBERS OF THE DIVINE FAMILY. THEY WILL ALL BE CHILDREN OF GOD. NONE AMONG THEM WILL BE IN THE GODHEAD, WHERE

116

GOD THE FATHER AND CHRIST THE SON OF GOD ARE SO POSITIONED IN THE FAMILY, AND KINGDOM, OF GOD. AT THAT POINT IN TIME, ALAS, IN THE REALM OF EVERLASTING, THE GODHEAD WILL REVEAL THE DEEPEST MYSTERIES OF GOD TO HIS IMMORTAL CHILDREN.

THE GODHEAD – NEW TESTAMENT ELOHIYM – OLD TESTAMENT

THIS REVELATION FROM GOD EXPLAINS THE TRUTH OF THE DUALITY IN ELOHIYM. A Hebrew word that is singular in use, and plural in sense. A compound unity. More than one member, or person in Elohiym (Godhead).

There is ONE Elohiym. Written in translations from the Hebrew word as LORD (KJV).

There is ONE GODHEAD. Written in English translations from the Greek, as Godhead, (KJV).

There is ONE TRUE GOD. The Highest.

The HOLY SPIRIT is the power of the Highest, (Gospel Book of

Luke 1:35).

THEREBY GOD IS NOT A “TRINITY”.

117

The word “trinity” does not appear in the original New Testament scriptures. Holy Scriptures. Scriptures used to imply it is an error by addition by the original translators, who believed in the doctrine of

the “Trinity:”

THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL BE SHARED BY GOD in the fullness of power WITH THE CHILDREN OF GOD. THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD.

IT WILL BE THE SPIRITUAL POWER THAT WILL ENABLE THE CHILDREN OF GOD TO RULE THE UNIVERSE WITH CHRIST, as heirs, and joint-heirs with HIM, WHEN THEY

INHERIT IT! (Epistle to the Romans 8:16-17.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

> THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST, (Gospel Book of Luke

1:35):

35 “And the angel answered and said unto her. The Holy Spirit

shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that the holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

> WHEN MAN IS BORN AGAIN, BORN OF THE SPIRIT

INTO THE FAMILY, AND KINGDOM, OF GOD, GOD THE

FATHER WILL SHARE THE HOLY SPIRIT WITH THEM WHO WILL BECOME IMMORTAL BEINGS. THAT IS THE ONLY WITH WHICH, AND BY WHICH, THEY TOO, CAN RULE THE UNIVERSE WITH CHRIST.

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name, (Book of Psalms

WHY IS THERE IS DUALITY IN MAN’S NATURE?

> 1. “Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it. For in the day thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely

die,(Book of Genesis 2:16-17).

> Be very careful that, even as it is proferred to you, and attempts are made to teach truth and error together TO YOU, ACCEPT IT NOT. INGEST NOT, NEITHER EAT. Assimilate it not into your mind that it becomes your guiding store of knowledge and understanding. For if you do, your wisdom will be as flawed as the rest of the world.

THE PERPLEXITY APOSTLE PAUL WRESTLED WITH

15 For that which I do I allow not; for what I would, that do I not, but what I hate, that do I. 16 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

121

17

For know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good

thing: for to will is present with me; but now to perform that which

is good I find not.

Gen. 6:5; 8:21

19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would

not, that I do.

20 Now If I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin

that dwelleth in me.

21 I find then a law, that when I would do good, evil is present

with me.

22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man.

23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law

of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which

is in my members.

Gal. 5:17; ch. 6:13, 19

24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body

of this death?

25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of

sin, (Epistle to the Romans 7: 25).

So then with the

THE SEED OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL INCORPORATED INTO MAN’S VERY DNA. THIS PRODUCES THIS DUALITY IN EVERY MAN. THIS PRODUCES THE NEVER ENDING INNER CONFLICT WITHIN EVERY MAN AND WOMAN ON EARTH. THE APOSTLE PAUL ARTICULATED THIS DILEMMA, BY ADMITTING ITS VERY PRESENCE IN HIMSELF.

SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE.

122

Thereby Live by the Pure Word of God

DO YOU HAVE AN IMMORTAL SOUL?

> Man CREATED. Read how it all began:

7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a

living soul,* (Book of Genesis 2:7).

ch 3:19, 23

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*heb. nephesh >>>> that which breathes; a breathing creature; mortally (Strong’s: 5315). *Gk. psuche >>>> used interchangeably: spirit, soul; , vitality, linked with emotion, emotional life; life, linked with mind and heart, seat of thinking , feeling, and purpose, (Strong’s: 5590).

> Man became a living soul. Yes, man is a living soul.

SO MAN DOES NOT HAVE A SOUL INSIDE HIS MORTAL BODY. HE IS A LIVING SOUL.

“The soul that sinneth, it shall die,” (Book of Ezekiel 18:4, 20).

Rom 6:23

SO MAN DOES NOT HAVE AN IMMORTAL SOUL.

THERE IS A SPIRIT IN MAN

8 “But there is a spirit* in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty

giveth them understanding,” (Book of Job 32:8).

Prov 2:6

*SPIRIT- Gk. pneuma >>>>non-physical element that God formed in man, Blended with his physical brain, his mind is formed, that will enable him to receive and understand spiritual truths. To enable him to distinguish between right and wrong, and make decisions, thereby. He then is able to think, and reason. By free will, he can make choices, make decisions to do, or not to do.

His mind, with the spirit-in-man, can then be reached with inspiration by the Holy Spirit, to form both human, and spiritual, character. It records the chronicles of his entire life and his spiritual character as finally formed. When man dies, his spirit returns to the man’s Creator, GOD, for safekeeping, so to speak, (Book of Ecclesiastes 12:7):

7 “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was; and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” Gen. 3:10; ch. 3:21

God reaches out to man, and the Spirit of God links to man’s spirit to give man, by inspiration, wisdom and understanding.

1 “The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him,

(Books of the prophets Zechariah 12:1; Isaiah 42:5).

124

THIS IS THE SAME SPIRIT THAT LATER IN DEATH RETURNS TO THE DIVINE CREATOR. THE CHARACTER FORMED, BUILT, AND PERFECTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT IN MAN, OVER A SPIRITUALLY CONVERTED LIFETIME WILL BE THE VERY CONSTITUENT SPIRIT AND MIND THAT GOD WILL INVEST WITH A SPIRITUAL BODY TO BECOME HIS IMMORTAL SON, HIS CHILD WHO WILL LIVE FOREVER. THIS IS THE TRUE SALVATION WHICH IS A GIFT OF GOD, AND GRANT THE REWARD OF A CROWN OF LIFE, WITH HONOR AND GLORY.

27 “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with

his angels: and the he shall reward every man according to his

works,
