    Peace to those who may read.

    We have been living in the “out of season” regarding the true hearing of the Word of Truth for a long time as many ….having “itching ears”….have heaped to themselves teachers who teach what they want to hear.

    The time is now that they do not endure sound doctrine as many have turned away and are listening to their “teachers” who deceive them and lead them astray from the Way of righteousness that leads to everlasting life in this earth….. the manifest, eternal life of Jesus in their mortal flesh.

    2 Timothy 4:1-4 KJV
    (1) I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
    (2) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
    (3) For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;


    Many have turned their ears from the Truth and are turned unto “fables”…..myths…that their pastors are preaching to them as they go down the broad way to destruction…the destruction of their mortal flesh. Their teachers have no understanding and there is a great famine of hearing His words among them.

    (4) And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
    (5) But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.


    The Lord delivered us the Holy Commandment for us to keep. It is the “doctrine of Christ” which is simple for us to keep. Yet, the false teachers complicate the simplicity that is in Christ by preaching their carnal commandments of men for money’s sake.

    John 13:34-35 KJV
    (34) A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
    (35) By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another
    .

    We must be DOERS of the Word and not just hearers only. True “hearing” is DOING.

    James 1:22-26 KJV
    (22) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
    (23) For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
    (24) For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.


    True hearing is continuously DOING His Word (to have love for one another) and not be forgetful to do it. We must be a continuous DOER of the work and not become feeble in doing well always.
    Those who become “forgetful” in keeping His commandment fall victim to the false teachers that are so prevalent today. Becoming “forgetful” is the power of darkness that they use to lead us astray from doing His Word in order for us to go to their “church” and keep their teachings and commandments of men that lead us away from the Truth.

    (25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

    We may have the “form of godliness” but yet deny its power by not DOING it. True “hearing” is DOING His Word (to have love for one another). Those who seem to be religious and yet do not bridle their tongue from speaking evil of another, their religion is empty. They worship Him in vain as they use their mouth to bless God and then also curse other men who do not keep their teachings and commandments of men.

    (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.

    The false teachers have many followers who follow after their pernicious (destructive) ways by reason of whom the Way of Truth is evil spoken of by the outside world. The outside world sees the hypocrisy going in the churches of men (where they don’t practice what they preach) and speak evil of the Way. They have the form of godliness( they have the Holy Commandment that was delivered unto them to keep) but they deny the power of it by not DOING it.

    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.


    The false teachers preach through their covetousness with feigned words in order to make merchandise of those who listen to them.

    (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.

    There are MANY who do not “hear” (true “hearing” is DOING His Word) the law of the LORD and have itching ears only to hear their teachers (preachers) teach smooth things and prophesy deceit.

    Isaiah 30:8-11 KJV
    (8) Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
    (9) That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:


    They do not want to hear “right things”…the Word of Truth …but rather what they want to hear: pleasant things and deceit.

    (10) Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

    They do not want to go the Way of Truth but rather hear and follow after their pastor that leads them down the broad way to their destruction of their mortal flesh from off this earth. They are perishing from a lack of knowledge because their teachers have no understanding.

    (11) Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.

    God has given them to a “reprobate mind”…their false teacher’s mind…. who has no understanding of the good news and is leading them astray from the Way of righteousness in order for them to take pleasure in their unrighteousness.

    They want to hear everything is all right in their unrighteous ways (peace, peace) as they use their teachings and commandments of men to judge others with….speaking evil of them. They take pleasure in doing so. MANY follow after the reprobate mind of their teacher in church who leads them astray.

    Romans 1:
    (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;
    (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.


    MANY give heed to their teacher’s “fables” and commandments of men that turn their listeners from the truth. The reprobate mind has no understanding and is only preaching fables and commandments of men that turn us away from the Truth.

    Titus 1:14-16 KJV
    (14) Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
    (15) Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.


    They profess that they know God but in their works they deny Him as they speak evil of others supposedly in His authority.

    (16) They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

    The mystery of iniquity is already at work in all of the gatherings (churches) of men as NO FLESH is being saved in any of them. Their longstanding judgment against them remains in force, and their destruction does not sleep as they perish from off this earth.

    2 Thessalonians 2:6-12 KJV
    (6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
    (7) For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
    (8) And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:


    Their presence (the man of sin...the son of destruction) among us is in accordance to the working of Satan as they use all power and signs and lying wonders to deceive those who have pleasure in their unrighteousness rather than DO His Word. They know the Holy Commandment that was delivered unto them to keep and yet they set it aside in order to use the teachings and commandments of men to speak evil of others who do not keep them.

    The false teachers preach feigned words…great swelling words (the “lying wonders”)…in order for men to be flattered and go after them and sit together with them in their churches where they are perishing away from off this earth without the life of Jesus being made manifest in their mortal flesh.

    They have no understanding of the good news of His appearing, everlasting life in our mortal flesh . The “god of this age”…their belly that they are serving for….has blinded their reprobate minds from the true understanding of the good news of Christ for us in this earth.

    The “son of perdition” is the son of destruction (in every church gathering) as he is perishing from off this earth and is taking his listeners with him in their judgment and destruction.

    (9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

    Many follow after their pernicious ways and are perishing because they do not receive the love of the Truth (DOING it) that they might be saved.

    (10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

    They think that they have “peace” to go to church and sit with the son of perdition and believe THE lie that they are doing God “service” for speaking evil of others who do not keep their church’s teachings and commandments of men.

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

    They set aside His commandment to have love for one another in order to speak evil of others using their carnal commandments and false teachings as a basis for doing so. They take pleasure in this.

    (12) That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Those who use their teachings of fleshly-minded men and their carnal commandments to judge others with (judging them supposedly for God as “evildoers”) is not a true DOER of the Law of Christ (to have love for one another) but a “judge”. They believe THE lie from the very beginning that they are “gods”…that is, JUDGES…for God in doing so.

    James 4:10-12 KJV
    (10) Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
    (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.


    There is only ONE Lawgiver who is able to save and to destroy. Who are we to use our denomination’s carnal commandment (our own “law”) to judge others….labeling them as “evil doers” who will “go to hell” for not keeping it?

    (12) There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

    The reprobate mind…the false teacher…that many are given over to because they do not receive the love of the Truth that they might be saved (their mortal flesh in this earth) does not preach with understanding as he only preaches things that he has wrested out of the Scriptures (carnal commandments) with is vainly puffed up fleshly mind.

    Colossians 2:18-23 KJV
    (18) Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

    The reprobate mind that the itching ears are listening to is not holding the Head…..the knowledge of Christ….

    (19) And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

    ….and is only preaching for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men that turn many away from the Way of Truth that leads to life now. Do not let any man (the man with the reprobate mind that is “teaching”) beguile you of your reward….His appearing, eternal life in you mortal flesh which gives you His everlasting life in this earth.

    (20) Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,

    The woman in the garden added her own carnal commandment (“neither shall you touch it”….that is, don’t touch the tree of knowledge of good and evil) to God’s commandment. The woman in the garden presented it as though God had commanded it.

    (And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 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.)

    The same thing is going on inside all of the churches of men as they are presenting their carnal commandments as though God commanded them to keep them. Yet, they are perishing away from off this earth as they use their commandments and doctrines of men to speak evil of others…judging them for not keeping them…which is not doing the Law of Christ that was delivered unto us to keep.

    (21) (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
    (22) Which all are to perish with the using after the commandments and doctrines of men?


    Yet, many see themselves as wise for doing so and yet are perishing away in their mortal flesh with the using of them.

    (23) Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

    Whosoever “kills” you with their false judgment (i.e. you are an “evil doer” for not keeping my carnal commandment or teaching of man) is believing THE lie that they are doing God “service” for doing so. They do these things because they have not known the Father nor the Son.

    John 16:1-3 KJV
    (1) These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
    (2) They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
    (3) And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.


    They believe that they have “peace” (you shall not surely die) to “kill” others with their false accusations….being judge, jury and executioner of others who do not keep their doctrines (fables) and commandments of men.

    The literal translation of “you shall not surely die” is “dying, you shall not die”…or rather by “KILLING, you shall not die”.

    We have the “peace and safety” message here in Genesis 3:4 used by those who want to seduce us into setting aside the commandment of God to have love for one another and “kill” others with our tongues by speaking evil of others (labeling them as “evil doers” for not keeping our teachings and carnal commandments).

    The serpent comes with his ministers in order to deceive those who do not receive the love of the Truth and be saved. Their coming is in accordance with the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders….. with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

    And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe THE lie…the same LIE from the beginning….that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    Genesis 3:4-7 KJV
    (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

    The lie: they think that they are doing God “service” for “killing” you (For God does know…) with their words of false accusations.

    The lie: then your eyes shall be opened (you will be seen as “wise” for doing so) and you shall be as “gods” (that is, JUDGES supposedly for God) knowing good and evil. MANY love and practice THE lie as they see themselves as judges for God knowing what and who is “good and evil” according to their own carnal “law” or teaching that they have set themselves up to keep in their churches.

    (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.

    They take pleasure in their unrighteousness (it was pleasant to the eyes). They want to be seen as “wise” (a tree to be desired to make one wise). They are desirous of their own vain glory…wanting to be seen as wise.

    (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.

    Professing themselves to be “wise” (wanting to be seen as wise), they became fools…

    Romans 1:
    (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:


    ….as they exchange the Truth of God into THE LIE (the same lie from the beginning) and worship and serve the “creature”…that is, the ordinance of carnal men…more than the Creator as they set aside His commandment to have love for one another in order to keep the teachings and commandments of men…using them to speak evil of others as “judges” supposedly for God ( the Lie: “For God does know”).

    (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.

    Their religion is vain when they do not bridle their tongue as they use the tongue to “kill” others with using their doctrines and commandments of men as a basis for doing so. In vain do they worship Him in their churches where they are exchanging the Truth of God for THE lie. They reject the commandment of God (to have love for one another) in order to keep their own transmission (tradition). They keep their handwriting of church dogmas over the commandment of God.

    Mark 7:6-9 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.
    (9) And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.


    They hold the Truth in unrighteousness…that is, they HOLD DOWN the Truth in their unrighteousness as they reject the commandment of God in order to keep their church teachings and commandments over serving God by keeping His commandment. Professing themselves as “wise”, they became fools and exchanged the Truth of God for the lie.

    Romans 1:18-19 KJV
    (18) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
    (19) Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    Peace brother. Thanks for stopping by and reading.




    All of us are being addressed as there is NONE that understands. There is NONE that truly seek after God. There is NONE righteous….no…not even one.

    The earth BECAME without form (without righteousness) and void of understanding as all have “gone out of the Way”….the Way of righteousness that leads to life in this earth.

    Romans 3:9-18 KJV
    (9) What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
    (10) As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
    (11) There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God
    .

    There is NONE that does good….no, not one.

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

    Fleshly-minded men (false prophets, false teachers, false apostles, etc) who preach in the churches use their tongues for deceit….the poison of asps is under their lips. They lead many astray from the Way of righteousness and down the broad way to the destruction of the mortal flesh….as all are dying from off this earth. NO mortal flesh is being saved as the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of those that they are deceiving. They do this for money’s sake.

    (13) Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
    (14) Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
    (15) Their feet are swift to shed blood:


    Destruction and misery are in their ways…..and MANY are following after their pernicious ways and are being destroyed along with them.

    (16) Destruction and misery are in their ways:
    (17) And the way of peace have they not known:
    (18) There is no fear of God before their eyes.


    They…the “preachers”…the “shepherds”…come forth to lead us astray from the Way of righteousness that we are supposed to be on so that His life is made manifest in us.

    They are of a corrupt mind…being destitute of the Truth. They feed only themselves…literally…and are not feeding the church of God with the Word of Truth for they have no understanding of it themselves. Their belly (the "god of this age") that they are serving for has blinded their minds…their reprobate minds… to the good news for us now. They are perishing from off this earth without understanding.

    2 Corinthians 4:3-5 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.

    They come in their own authority (preaching themselves) and not Christ Jesus the Lord.

    (5) For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.


    They use their tongues for deceit…. the poison of asps is under their lips. The serpent goes upon his “belly” as that is all that he is preaching for (to literally feed the belly with the earthly necessities) and wants to corrupt our minds from the simplicity that is in Christ. They are minding earthly things (going upon the "belly") and not the things of God.

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

    They come forth in accordance with the working of Satan to deceive those who become forgetful (the power of darkness) to have love for one another. They come to cause divisions among us (denominations of men) and offences (the teachings and commandments of men) that are contrary to the doctrine (the teaching of Christ: have love for one another as I loved you) which we have learned. We must AVOID them all.

    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.

    They do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ but their own belly (preaching themselves) as they preach for pay in order to get their earthly needs met. That is all that they are thinking about when they use their “good words and fair speeches” to deceive us. Satan minds the things of men and not the things of God. It is no wonder that his ministers come forth posing as sent by Christ....false apostles.

    (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 are the “reprobate mind” that we are given over when we become forgetful to DO His will. When we do not receive the love of the Truth (by DOING it), then they have the power to deceive us into sitting in their churches.

    They want to “corrupt” our minds with their “reprobate mind” as they preach for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men that lead us away from the Truth. They preach things that they ought not be (the teachings and commandments of men that aren’t saving the mortal flesh of anyone) for money’s sake as they are serving their own belly.

    The serpent “goes upon the belly”. Satan’s ministers only serve for their belly’s sake in order to get paid so that they may get their earthly needs met: what to eat, what to drink, what to wear. They mind the things of man and not the things of God.

    The serpent beguiled Eve through his cleverness…and so his ministers also want to deceptively corrupt our minds from the simplicity (just have love for one another) that is in Christ. They handle the Word of God deceitfully for their own unjust gain.

    2 Corinthians 11:2-7 KJV
    (2) For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
    (3) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.


    Yet, many see themselves as “wise” in their own minds and accept those who come in their own authority…who are preaching another Jesus. They preach another gospel and yet many people receive them. They might well bear with those who come to deceive them.

    (4) For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
    (5) For I suppose I was not a whit behind
    the very chiefest apostles.
    (6) But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.


    And of course, one of the things that the falsely sent (the false “apostle”…meaning “sent”) do is preach for money rather than preach to us the good news of God freely.

    (7) Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

    Professing themselves as “wise” , they became fools.

    MANY let these men bring them into their church bondage of the teachings and commandments of men. They GLADLY let them exalt themselves over them and bring them into their churches where there is NO PEACE. It all starts with seeing ourselves as “wise” as we gladly let them devour us in their churches where there is NO FLESH being saved.

    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 say that they are “sent” by Christ…..they claim that they are apostles of Christ…but they are falsely sent…false apostles (meaning “sent”) as they do not freely give (the gospel) as they have freely received. they do not come in His authority but their own.

    They transform themselves as the ministers of righteousness as they preach for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men which are not saving the mortal flesh of anyone. Their end (destruction of their mortal flesh) is according to their works. Since NO mortal flesh is being saved in any church of man, we are to not be a part of any one of them as they are all together become profitless.

    2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV
    (13) For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    (14) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
    (15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.


    They come forth to deceive us and take the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice out of our lives so that His life is never made manifest in our outer mortal flesh which would give us His eternal life in this earth rather than perish from this earth.

    If we keep the “daily” sacrifice (ALWAYS bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus), then His life shall also be made manifest in our mortal body….in our mortal flesh…which gives us His eternal life in this earth by which the outside world may see His life in us and praise God in heaven.

    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.


    Yet, they come forth following in the footsteps of Judas to take away the “daily” sacrifice out of our lives.

    If the Lord is “daily” in our mortal body…the “temple” (daily with us teaching in the temple), then they do not have the power to lay hold on us.

    But if we become forgetful in keeping His “daily” in the temple (the mortal body), then they come forth to deceive us and take away the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice (ALWAYS bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus) out of our lives so that His life never is made manifest.

    Matthew 26:55 KJV
    (55) In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

    “One of you is a devil”…….

    John 6:69-71 KJV
    (69) And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
    (70) Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
    (71) He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.


    Many….A GREAT MULTITUDE…follow in the footsteps of Judas. They come with “swords”….they come to cause divisions among us. They come with “staves”….being rulers rather than servants.

    Matthew 26:47-50 KJV
    (47) And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.

    They flatter us with their good words and fair speeches. They come with a feigned “kiss”…the flattering lips…in order to take away the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice of the Lord out of our lives so that His life never is made manifest in our mortal flesh.

    They cause divisions among us (coming with their “swords” to take Jesus out of our lives) and offences that keep us from the doctrine of Christ who is to be teaching us daily in the “temple” (the mortal body) to have love for one another.

    We are to ALWAYS have love for one another as He loved us and died for us and so we must ALWAYS keep His “daily” sacrifice and not become forgetful to keep it lest we fall victim to the false prophets who follow in the footsteps of Judas.

    (48) Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
    (49) And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him
    .

    They come as a “friend” in order to take away the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice of the Lord in our mortal bodies. Like Judas, they do this for money’s sake.

    (50) And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.

    When we become forgetful to ALWAYS keeping His “daily” sacrifice in the mortal body (the temple), then they come forth using that power of darkness to deceive us into keeping company with them in their denominations (divisions) where there is no peace.

    They come forth preaching the teachings and commandments of men that are CONTRARY to the teaching of Jesus daily in the temple. The doctrine of Christ is to have love for one another and this is a DAILY thing in the “temple”…the mortal body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

    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.


    This is the doctrine of Christ: to have love for one another. Whoever transgresses this and ABIDES not in the doctrine of Christ has not God and is a deceiver. MANY deceivers (who say they are sent by Christ) have entered into the world to lead us astray from the keeping of His doctrine. They preach for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men that lead us away from the doctrine of Christ. They want us to set aside His teaching (the daily teaching of Christ in the temple of the body) in order to keep their doctrines and commandments of men that are not saving the mortal flesh of anyone.

    2 John 1:6-11 KJV
    (6) And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
    (7) For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
    (8) Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
    (9) Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.


    We are not to receive such men in our house who do not come with the doctrine of Christ.

    Neither bid him “God speed”…that is, to REJOICE. When we pay them for preaching to us, we are bidding them to REJOICE in their activities as they lead many astray from the Way of righteousness that leads to life in this earth. We become partaker of their evil deeds when we pay them the image…money…that they rejoice in.

    (10) If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
    (11) For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.


    The same Greek word for “God speed” is translated as“hail” (which means to REJOICE) in Matthew 26:49 when Judas came to take Jesus away to be crucified. We must not bid them REJOICE when they come to us and want us to rejoice with them. They instead want to take away Jesus (the keeping of His “daily” sacrifice) out of our lives so that His life is never made manifest.

    Matthew 26:47-50 KJV
    (47) And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
    (48) Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
    (49) And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
    (50) And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.


    We must “awake” to His righteousness and put on Christ. We MUST “rise” and go out from among them (the churches of men where the son of destruction is) for the Son of man (the appearing life of Jesus in our mortal flesh) is being betrayed into the hands of sinners who come to lead us astray from the Way of righteousness.

    Matthew 26:45-47 KJV
    (45) Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
    (46) Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
    (47) And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people
