    Peace.

    We are to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches and be found of Him doing His will.

    What we hear with our hearing ears is named JESUS as He is preached (His words of life and spirit) and He saves us from our sins.

    Matthew 1:21-23 KJV
    (21) And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

    We must hear His voice and obey FROM THE HEART (not feigned but genuine) that form of doctrine which was delivered for us to keep. That teaching is to have love for one another. That is the Holy Commandment that was delivered by Him for us to keep as He makes us free from sin.

    Romans 6:17-23 KJV
    (17) But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

    He frees us from sin so that we may become the servants of righteousness.

    (18) Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

    When we use the church teachings and commandments of men to judge others (speaking evil of them), then we are serving sin which should not have dominion over us.

    (19) I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
    (20) For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.


    The end of those things (the keeping of the teachings and commandments of men….their handwriting of ordinances or dogmas) is always death….death to our mortal bodies for the wages of sin is death.

    (21) What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
    (22) But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
    (23) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


    We have the commandment to walk in…and that commandment is to have love for one another as Jesus loved us and gave Himself for us. We must keep His “daily” sacrifice always in our mortal bodies so that His everlasting life (that He is experiencing now) should be made manifest in our mortal flesh which gives us eternal life and we inherit this earth.

    2 John 1:4-5 KJV
    (4) I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
    (5) And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.


    But men set aside the commandment of God in order to hold the “tradition” (the transmission) of men. They have His commandment. They know His commandment. They agree with His commandment….and yet set it aside (NOT DOING IT) in order to keep their church’s handwriting of dogmas of which they use to judge others…speaking evil of others. This is not truly keeping the commandment of God that was delivered for us to keep but instead is serving sin. We use our members…our tongues…to serve sin when we speak evil of others (labeling them as “evildoers”) who do not keep our church teachings and commandments.

    Mark 7:7-9 KJV
    (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.


    The wrath of God IS REVEALED from Heaven against ALL ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the Truth (that is, hold it down) in unrighteousness as they set aside His Holy Commandment to have love for one another in order to serve sin by the keeping of the handwriting of church dogmas that they use to speak evil of others with.

    They are cut down from this earth. They perish from this earth in their sins under the wrath of God that comes upon the children of disobedience who know what they should do and don’t do it.

    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.


    When we speak evil of others using our carnal commandments of men as a basis for doing so, then we are not a DOER of the law of Christ (who commanded us to have love for one another). There is only ONE Lawgiver and ONE Judge who is able to save and to destroy. We must not judge others using our own teachings and commandments of men. We condemn others as evildoers to “hell” but there is only ONE who is able to save and to destroy.

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


    But thankfully, He forgives us (who are “dead” in our sins and the uncircumcision of our flesh) of all of our trespasses.

    Colossians 2:13-23 KJV
    (13) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    He blots out the handwriting of church dogmas that are against us which are contrary to us. He takes it out of the way and nails it to His cross. the handwriting of the church scribes are against us getting along with one another. It promotes divisions and strife. It leads us away from the Way of righteousness.

    (14) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    Yet, the Lord forgive us and He spoils the principalities and the powers that leads us to death. Carnal men have brought us into their church bondage by our keeping of their handwriting of ordinances that do NOTHING to save our mortal flesh as ALL perish by the using of them. The fruit of their things is always death for not one has ever inherited eternal life in this earth by the keeping of them. They have the power of death in their teachings and they use the fear of death to keep us obedient to their handwriting of ordinances. Let no man judge you according to the carnal commandments of men that are wrested out of the Scriptures with his own fleshly mind.

    (15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
    (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.


    Let no man beguile you of your reward (the eternal life of Jesus being made manifest in this mortal body) in a voluntary humility and worshipping of messengers. MANY men intrude into those things which they have not truly seen. They wrest their teachings and commandments of men from the Scriptures unto their own destruction. They do not hold the Head…the mind of Christ…but use their own puffed up fleshly minds to wrest the Scriptures to their own mortal destruction.

    (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,
    (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.
    (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,


    All PERISH from this earth under the wrath of God according to their using of the commandments and teachings of men. They set aside the commandment of God to have love for one another in order to speak evil (JUDGE) of others who do not keep their carnal commandments and teachings of men. This is serving sin which should not have dominion over us.

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


    And yet, MANY see themselves as “wise” in the keeping of the teachings and commandments of men. Professing themselves as “wise”, they have become fools as they set aside the commandment of God in order to keep the commandments and teachings of men.

    (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.

    In vain do they worship Him, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    Matthew 15:8-9 KJV
    (8) This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
    (9) But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men
    .

    Professing themselves to be “wise”, they become fools….

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


    ….as they exchange the Truth of God into the lie and worship and serve the “creature”…the ordinance…more than the Creator. They set aside the commandment of God in order to worship and serve the handwriting (using it to speak evil of others). They see themselves as wise for doing so and think that they are doing so for God as they judge others supposedly in His name….in His authority.

    (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.

    We must DO His will.

    Matthew 7:21-27 KJV
    (21) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    MANY think that they are doing their “wonderful works” in His name…in His authority when they cast out others as “devils”…labeling them “evildoers” who do not keep their carnal teachings and commandments. They believe the lie that they are doing these things in His Name…in His authority.

    (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
    (24) 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:


    Let no man deceive you with his vain words for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon them.

    Ephesians 5:6-11 KJV
    (6) Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

    We must not be partakers with them in their churches where men set aside the Holy Commandment of God and preach for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men that are not saving the mortal flesh of any who go and sit together with them.

    (7) Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
    (8) For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
    (9) (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth
    (10) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
    (11) And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them
    .

    Let us not listen to the many men who speak great swelling words of emptiness in order to get us to go their churches and pay them the image…money.

    2 Peter 2:18-22 KJV
    (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

    Let us not be brought into their bondage.

    (19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
    (20) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.


    They want us to set aside the Holy Commandment that was delivered for us to keep and be brought into their bondage of church teachings and commandments of men. They want us to turn from the Holy Commandment that was delivered to us by our Lord to keep and be entangled and overcome in the pollutions of the world as we use the handwriting of church dogmas to speak evil (judge) others.

    (21) For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    (22) But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.


    Every man’s work is made manifest for the Day shall declare it because it shall be revealed by fire

    1 Corinthians 3:10-20 KJV
    (10) According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
    (11) For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.


    We must not preach for doctrines the teachings and commandments of men (wood, hay, stubble) for all PERISH in the fire of His wrath with the keeping of them. We must not preach things we ought not be (the teachings and commandments of men) for money’s sake…..the gold, silver, precious stones. We are to be living stones built up in love...having love for one another.

    (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; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
    (14) If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward
    .


    Those who do such things suffer loss….the loss of their mortal body (the temple of God is destroyed). Their spirit is saved yet so as by fire….under the wrath of God that comes upon the children of disobedience which destroys the.


    (15) If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
    (16) Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
    (17) If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
    (18) Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.


    Let us not see ourselves as “wise” and go and sit together with those who preach for doctrines the commandments of men. those who do, destroy themselves. They are taken away in their own craftiness.

    (19) For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
    (20) And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.


    We must not sit together with them in their churches as we become ONE FLESH with them in their sins and are destroyed along with the children of disobedience.

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


    The “fornication” is the sitting together with them in their churches where they are preaching things that they ought not to be for MONEY”S SAKE….playing the “harlot”. If we are sitting together with them, we must FLEE the “fornication”.

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


    In doing so, we are delivered from the wrath that comes upon them for their sins.

    Peace Brother.

    Let me try....

    Eternal life is for the here-and-now. Jesus was sent into THIS world so that THIS world might have His life now as Jesus IS RISEN now. He WAS dead and is alive now so that we might have His life now. It is a living hope as salvation is now and not for the “hereafter” by those (false teachers, false prophets, false apostles, false Christs, etc) who are preaching a dead hope…a dying hope. They are preaching their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave even though Jesus IS RISEN now so that we might have His life now. These bad characters are using great swelling words of vanity to get us to “go to church” where they want us to serve in their bondage of the teachings and commandments of men that were written (the handwriting of church dogmas) for us to keep by their church scribes.

    They do this for money’s sake and have no understanding of the good news (the gospel) that salvation is for now….in this earth. NOW is the time. If we listen to them, we are led down the broad way to the destruction of our mortal body along with them as we serve sin because we use their doctrines and commandments (the handwriting of their ordinances) to speak evil of others. They want us to join in their exchanges being done in all of their churches….exchanging His glory that is due Him from all nations for money (the image of corruptible man upon it). They want us to exchange the Truth of God for the lie and worship and serve their handwriting of ordinances.

    We perish under the wrath of God that comes upon the children of disobedience if we sit together with them. We, ourselves are saved, but we suffer loss….the loss of our mortal bodies for our sins for the wages of sin is death. Their deeds are manifested because they perish from off this earth. They have been and are working iniquity supposedly in His name and are perishing.

    We are to take heed on how we hear so that more shall be given.

    thanks for reading Brother.

    Why seek the Living among those who are “dead” in trespasses and sins?

    We must come out from among them (the churches of fleshly-minded men) and be separate. NO FLESH is being saved in any church.

    They make the tomb “sure” thing for those who go to them. They use their “principalities and powers”….their handwriting of church dogmas…to keep us in them until we perish from this earth. When we serve their handwriting of ordinances, we perish as we use them to judge others….to speak evil of others as “evildoers” who are going to “hell”.

    They do not want His true disciples to come and steal His people (who are His body) from their churches by preaching that He IS RISEN…He is truly risen. If Jesus IS RISEN already from the dead, then we are to have His everlasting, heavenly life now in this earth. Let us not listen to their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave as they preach that the tomb is a sure thing for us.

    Matthew 27:62-66 KJV
    (62) Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
    (63) Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.


    Jesus is truly risen from the dead. He WAS dead but is alive now and forevermore and those who will truly believe in Him shall not perish (die) from this earth but have His everlasting life now for salvation is NOW. His true disciples come to"steal" His people from their churches for truly HE IS RISEN NOW so that we might have His everlasting life in this earth now.

    (64) Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
    (65) Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.


    They make the tomb a sure thing and seal the “stone” WITH the “watch”. The pastor makes sure that the stone (the handwriting of church ordinances and teachings that are against us and are contrary to us) is sealed by his preaching and promoting it. We are kept inside their churches with their “powers”…the teachings and commandments of men…that keep us bound inside the “tomb” of their “church”.

    (66) So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

    The handwriting of church dogmas is against us and is contrary to us….the “stone” that keeps us inside their “tomb”.

    Colossians 2:13-23 KJV
    (13) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    But just as the stone was rolled away….He takes it out of the way for us. He spoils their principalities and powers and makes a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it. We depart from their “tomb” as they will no longer have power over us.

    (14) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
    (15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.


    Let no man therefore judge you with his carnal handwriting of ordinances that he (or the church fathers) have wrested out of the Scriptures unto their own destruction of their mortal flesh.

    (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.

    (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,
    (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.


    Why are we subject to their “ordinances” by which we perish from this earth with the using of them? MANY use them to judge others which is not keeping the law of Christ who commanded us to have love for one another.

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


    Desiring to be seen as “wise”(seeking their own vain glory), many use them to speak evil of others. They have a show of wisdom in will worship as many keep them in their own “wisdom”. But they do nothing for the mortal body as we perish 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.

    Let no man beguile you of your reward…..His eternal life being manifested in our mortal body. Men want to come and remove the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice out of our lives….always bearing about in the body the dying (the daily sacrifice) of the Lord Jesus. When they do, the eternal life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal body of those who listen to the beguiling words of fleshly-minded men.

    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.


    Jesus is alive now. He is risen now. He is “I AM”…as He exists. But those who are following in the footsteps of Judas are casting this truth...“I AM” ....to the ground as they preach we have to “die and go to heaven” when Jesus already died for us. They practice and prosper at it for no flesh is being saved.

    John 18:4-8 KJV
    (4) Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
    (5) They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
    (6) As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

    (7) Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.


    If they truly seek Him, then they would let us go our way instead of preaching deceptively for pay.

    (8) Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:

    If we fall asleep to His commandment to have love for one another, then they use this power of darkness to lead us astray from the Way of righteousness. We must “arise” and depart from those who are “dead” as the Son of man (the appearing life of Jesus in our mortal flesh) is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.

    Matthew 26:43-50 KJV
    (43) And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
    (44) And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
    (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.


    We must ARISE and be going…..be leaving their churches where His appearing life is being prevented from appearing. Those who betray Him are at hand in our presence.

    (46) Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

    They follow in the footsteps of Judas and come with their swords and staves. They do not serve our Lord Jesus but their own belly (preaching for pay) as they come to cause divisions among us and preach things (the doctrines and commandments of men) that are contrary to the teaching of Christ who taught us to have love for one another.

    (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 come with the flattering lips (the kiss) in order to lead us astray. they come as a "friend". yet, They come to take Jesus out of our lives so that His life never appears in this earth.

    (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.

    These fleshly-minded, ungodly men have crept in unawares while men “slept”…that is, fell asleep (forgetfulness) to doing His righteousness.

    Jude 1:3-5 KJV
    (3) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
    (4) For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.


    Their function is to destroy those who truly do not believe. We must DO His will and not be a hearer only. We may have been saved out of the pollutions of this world by the knowledge of our Lord Jesus but if we become feeble in well-doing, then the false prophets come forth to deceive us into keeping company with them in their churches where we willingly (professing ourselves as “wise”) serve and worship their handwriting of church ordinances (dogmas) and perish from off this earth.

    (5) I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

    Their presence among the churches of fleshly-minded men are in accordance to the working of Satan and use all power (the handwriting of church ordinances to keep us) ,signs and lying wonders , They are already among us as the mystery of iniquity is already at work.

    2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 KJV
    (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:


    They are used to deceive those who do not receive the love of the Truth and be saved. NO FLESH is being saved in their churches as many are perishing from off this earth as they sit together with the son of perdition…the son of destruction whose condemnation was written about long ago.

    (9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
    (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.
    (11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:


    They are used to condemn those who truly do not believe the Truth and take pleasure in unrighteousness as they love to speak evil of others in their judgment using their carnal teachings and commandments of men (which is being a servant of sin and not righteousness)

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

    The Son of man (the appearing, eternal life of Jesus in our mortal flesh) is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. The Son of man “goes”….sinks out of sight….as men (the son of destruction) come forth to deceive us with their flattery and take the keeping of His “daily” sacrifice in our lives. They deceive us into sitting with them in their churches where we perish from this earth without the life of Jesus appearing in our mortal flesh which would give us His eternal life so that we may inherit this earth (as it becomes the home of righteousness).

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

    MULTITUDES of these men are following in the footsteps of Judas as they come to cause divisions among us (come with “swords”) while preaching things (the doctrines and commandments of men) that are contrary to the teaching of Christ who taught us to have love for one another.

    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?

    If we keep His “daily” sacrifice (keeping His doctrine…teaching) in the “temple”…our mortal body, then they have no power to deceive us and take us into their captivity (their church bondage). But if we fall “asleep” to His righteousness, then they use this forgetfulness to DO His will to deceive us and lead us astray from the narrow Way that leads to His life in this earth.

    (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.

    Beware lest any man spoil you with his “wisdom” and vain deceit….after the tradition (the transmission) of men. Their handwriting of church dogmas (ordinances) is that “transmission” that they want us to serve and worship more than the Creator.

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

    They …the MULTITUDE that follow in the footsteps of Judas…come to take Jesus out of our lives with a “kiss”….the flattering lips of deceit.

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


    Their “kiss” is not a “holy kiss” as they use feigned words in order to lead us astray from the Way of righteousness…..leading us away from the keeping of the doctrine of Christ who is to teach us “daily” in our mortal bodies to have love for one another.

    Romans 16:16-18 KJV
    (16) Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.


    They come with “swords”…..causing divisions among us and preach things that they should not be as they are contrary to the “daily” keeping of the doctrine of Christ who teaches us to have love for one another. We must "awake" from our sleep as those who betray the Son of man is at hand. We must avoid them.

    (17) Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

    Their “kiss” are the “good words and fair speeches” they use to deceive the hearts of the simple…those who are forgetful to DO His will. They are forgetful hearers as they are not doers of the Word.

    (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.

    These men are made TO TAKE AND DESTROY (not “made to be taken”) those unstable souls that become weary in well doing. Like Judas, they do these things for money’s sake…..loving the wages of unrighteousness.

    2 Peter 2:12-15 KJV
    (12) But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
    (13) And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;

    the "man of sin'....cannot cease from sin as he deceives those who are unstable in keeping His will.

    (14) Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
    (15) Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousnes
    s;

    The “Amalek”….meaning “people who lick”….flatter with the tongue (lick) as they meet us by the Way of righteousness just as we are escaping the pollutions of the world (Egypt). Those who become “faint and weary” in well doing are led astray from the Way.

    Deuteronomy 25:17-18 KJV
    (17) Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt;
    (18) How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.


    The “Amalek” uses the flattering tongue (people who lick) to speak great swelling words of vanity…..just as they are escaping “Egypt”…the pollutions of the world.

    2 Peter 2:18-22 KJV
    (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
    (19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
    (20) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.


    The “Amalek” meets by the Way of righteousness in order to deceive us with the flattering tongue into turning from the Holy Commandment to have love for one another. They want us to come into their church bondage....worshipping and serving their handwriting of ordinances....setting aside the commandment of God to have love for one another.

    (21) For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    (22) But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire

    The Father has given us a commandment to “ARISE, and go from here”….arising from those who are “dead” in the churches of fleshly-minded men and departing from them.

    John 14:31 KJV
    (31) But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

    Jesus IS RISEN! He is not here in the “tomb” of the churches of fleshly-minded men. Why seek the Living among those who are “dead” in their trespasses and sins as they worship and serve their handwriting of ordinances…..using it to judge others with (speaking evil of others as “evildoers”). They are perishing from off this earth because they are servants of sin. The wages of sin is death….death to the mortal body so that their spirit is saved. They suffer loss as their works are burned up and they perish from this earth. But this is not our fate for those elect who will believe in what they hear the Spirit saying.

    Matthew 28:5-8 KJV
    (5) And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.


    Jesus WAS crucified but He IS RISEN. See where the churches lay Him as they preach their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave? Why are they preaching deceitfully and trying to make the tomb secure in our hearing of them when Jesus is alive now and we are to have His eternal risen life now in this earth?

    (6) He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

    We must DEPART from the “tomb” of the dead churches of fleshly-minded men. and go out into the world (Galilee = the circle of the nations) and be separate from them. Why be unequally yoked together with those church goers who will not believe in what they hear the Spirit saying in this coming time?

    (7) And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

    We must depart quickly from the “tomb” with fear and great joy….

    (8) And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

    They….the churches of fleshly-minded men….will persecute you for leaving but then we partake of the suffering of Christ as we are to suffer for righteousness’ sake. We are not to return evil for their evil but suffer for well doing. We are not to be afraid of their "terror".

    1 Peter 3:13-17 KJV
    (13) And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
    (14) But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;


    We are to depart from their “tomb” with fear…..being ready always to give an answer to every person that will ask you the reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.

    (15) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

    They will speak evil of you when you leave their church for the Son of man’s sake and the good news. But we must suffer for well doing towards their evil behavior.

    (16) Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
    (17) For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doin

    God be praised! According to His abundant mercy, He begets us AGAIN unto a LIVING HOPE by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Jesus WAS dead and IS RISEN now so that we might have His eternal, heavenly life NOW in this earth.

    It is no longer a “dying” hope that fleshly-minded men have been preaching (the word of men)as they preach their covenant with death….their agreement with the grave. The tomb is a sure thing for all of us as preached in the “tombs”…the churches of fleshly men where NO mortal flesh is being saved. Death is most certain in going to their churches and keeping the doctrines and commandments of men. All perish with the using of them.

    It never was a dying hope in the first place but the “pastors” who preach themselves (coming in their own name….that is, authority…. and not the name of the Lord) have no understanding of the good news of our Lord as their minds have been blinded because they are only serving for their own belly….only minding earthly things: what to eat, what to drink, what to wear. They things that they shouldn't for money's sake.

    If the good news is hid, it is hid to those who are “lost”…that is, PERISHING as their mortal bodies are perishing away to the grave when they handle the Word of God deceitfully for money’s sake. The “god of this age”…their belly…has blinded the minds of those who do not truly believe as they know what to do but don’t DO His will even though they all “go to church” and profess that they know God. True believing is active.

    2 Corinthians 4:1-7 KJV
    (1) Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
    (2) But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
    (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 preach for money’s sake and covet after it as they handle the Word of God deceitfully. They have no understanding and are only literally feeding themselves as His people that attend their churches suffer an extreme “famine” of hearing the true words of God. His people perish because of a lack of knowledge…His heavenly knowledge…while their shepherds are only feeding themselves.

    But thankfully, the Son of God comes to give us His understanding so that we may know Him who is true. He is merciful and comes to deliver us from ungodly men who have taken us captive in their churches and put us into the bondage of the keeping of their handwriting of church dogmas where no mortal flesh is being saved. According to God’s abundant mercy does He come to rescue us from the power of darkness and transfers us to the kingdom of His dear Son.

    He takes away their “power”….the handwriting of church ordinances…triumphing over it.

    We were “dead” in sins and trespasses because in keeping their handwriting, we used it to speak evil of others…judging others. If we are a “judge”, then we are not a DOER of the law of Christ who gave us the commandment to have love for one another as He loved us and gave Himself for us so that we might have His heavenly, eternal life in this earth. If we keep His teaching daily, then His life shall be made manifest in our mortal flesh so that this world may see His appearing glory in us.

    Thankfully, He FORGIVES us for our trespasses. He takes away the stone…that heavy burden of the church scribes (the handwriting of ordinances)….so that we may depart from their “tomb” that the church “fathers” hewed out for themselves for their own glory.

    The handwriting is AGAINST us and is CONTRARY to us….as the heavy stone that is placed at the mouth of the tomb. It is a wild animal that tears us apart in divisions and hatred of one another when we subject ourselves to it.

    It is contrary to the teaching of our Lord and keeps us from having love for one another. Dead men preach (with their mouth) their heavy burden of the handwriting of church dogmas and we are attached to a “dead body” when we keep company with them in their tomb and affirm of their sayings.

    Colossians 2:13-17 KJV
    (13) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    The church scribe intruded….trespassed…into things he had not seen in the Scriptures when he scribed out a church handwriting of dogmas that he wrested out of the Scriptures to his own destruction of the mortal flesh (and those who keep their handwriting are perishing).

    He takes the handwriting of church dogmas out of our way as the stone rolls away.

    (14) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    The Lord spoils the principalities and power and makes a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

    (15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
    (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.


    The angel….the messenger…of the Lord rolled away the stone from the door and SAT upon it in triumph. He spoils the principalities and power and makes a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it...sitting upon the stone. He rolls away their power to keep us in their “tomb”…their church where NO FLESH is being saved. He has the keys of the grave and death to let us out of their churches.

    Matthew 28:
    (1) In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
    (2) And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.


    His countenance was like lightning….

    (3) His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

    Those who fear the Lord will tremble at His Word and will keep His Word. They will humble themselves at the hearing of His voice….becoming as “dead men”.

    (4) And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

    This is what John did also when he saw the Lord….whose countenance was as the sun shining in his strength. He humbled himself….falling at His feet as “dead”. For fear of Him, the keepers of His Word will tremble at Him and become as “dead men”….quiet and humble. They will be quick to hear and slow to speak and slow to wrath.

    Revelation 1:16-18 KJV
    (16) And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
    (17) And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:


    “I AM” is alive and WAS dead and behold, He is ALIVE for evermore, Amen = truth. Carnal men have been casting this Truth to the ground in their preaching of their covenant with death. They take the “I AM” and cast it to the ground in the ears of those that they are “preaching” to.

    He has the keys of “hell”…that is, Hades or the grave…and of death. He IS RISEN NOW and not dead so that we may have His eternal life now in this earth. He has the keys to let us out of the churches of fleshly-minded men who are perishing from off this earth because of the lack of His knowledge.

    (18) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

    HE IS RISEN from the dead. He is not in the “tomb” of the churches of men where His life is not being made manifest in the flesh of anyone. We MUST depart from the “tomb” and go out into the world and be separate from their churches. God will build us.

    HE IS RISEN FROM THE DEAD. If He is truly risen, then why are the tombs of men still preaching that we are to still die in our mortal flesh?

    Let us not keep company with those who are rejoicing in their churches: "let us eat and drink (minding earthly things: what to eat, what to drink) for tomorrow we DIE!"

    They (the rich pastors) rejoice in these things in the "day of slaughter" as they kill the appearing of the Just One out of the lives of those that they are deceiving. They nourish their own hearts and rejoice as the sheep are being killed. (Isaiah 22:13). The life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of those that they lead astray from the Way of righteousness that leads to His life in this earth. MULTITUDES are going down the broad way to their destruction by the alluring words of false prophets.

    Matthew 28:5-10 KJV
    (5) And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
    (6) He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
    (7) And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
    (8) And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
    (9) And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.


    We must tell our brothers that they are to go into “Galilee”….into the world….and there we shall see Him.

    (10) Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

    Let us not be unequally yoked together with the unbelievers in their churches because they will not believe in what they hear the Spirit saying in this coming time.

    2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV
    (14) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
    (15) And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
    (16) And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.


    We must COME OUT from among them and be separate…

    (17) Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

    In doing so, He will be a Father unto us and we shall be His sons and daughters. We must go unto the Father by coming out of the unbelievers churches.

    (18) And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

    Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. We must follow in His footsteps and “go away” unto the Father by coming out from among the churches of fleshly-minded men. In doing so, we show the world that we love the Father. The Father is greater than us.

    John 14:28-31 KJV
    (28) Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
    (29) And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.


    The “prince of this world” is the minsters of Satan who will persecute us for leaving. They love to have the preeminence. They love to be first and will prate against us with their malicious words for leaving. They have nothing in Him as they will show that they do not know the Father nor the Son by their evil deeds and words.

    (30) Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

    The Father gives us a commandment to “ARISE, let us go hence”. We must arise from the dead and depart from them and go out into the world….to the Father so that we are His sons and daughters. We must DO His commandment so that we show we love the Father and depart.

    (31) But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

    If we love Him, we keep His commandments. In leaving, we shall receive the Comforter (as we shall be persecuted for leaving the church by the churchgoers and supporters of them).

    John 14:15-21 KJV
    (15) If ye love me, keep my commandments.
    (16) And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
    (17) Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
    (18) I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.


    We shall receive the Spirit of Truth and will need no man to teach us for the Spirit shall show us all things of the Lord. Because the Lord LIVES, we shall also LIVE. He IS ALIVE and so we are to be alive now in this earth if we keep His commandments and depart out of the churches of men.

    (19) Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
    (20) At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
    (21) He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.


    We must depart from them. We are to keep His commandment to arise and depart so that we may receive the Comforter which is the Holy Spirit who will teach us all things and bring all things that Jesus has said to our remembrance. We must leave so that He will come unto us...

    John 14:23-27 KJV
    (23) Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
    (24) He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
    (25) These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
    (26) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


    The Comforter will bring peace to our hearts in our persecutions by those who will not beleive. Let not our hearts be troubled neither let them be afraid when we are persecuted by those whom we leave behind in the churches of the unbelievers (the gathering of the hypocrites who say they love God but will speak evil of us….thereby showing that they do not know Him nor the Son).

    (27) Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

    Where is the promise of His coming? Where is the appearing eternal life of Jesus in this earth?

    Who shall declare His generation? His life is being cut off out of the earth (land) of the living.

    Isaiah 53:8-9
    (8) He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

    It is being cut off from this earth by wicked men who preach for pay (the rich pastors) and rejoice in this. In their mouth is found deceit as they lead many astray from the Way of righteousness so that the eternal life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of any. It is the “violence”. NO FLESH is being saved in any church of man…the “grave” where His body is. WE ARE HIS BODY. He made His grave with the wicked ones and with the rich in His DEATHS….which is plural in Hebrew.

    (9) And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death (DEATHS); because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

    His “deaths”….plural….is because the Prince of Life is being “killed” (the violence) out of the lives of so many by the false prophets when God has already raised Him from the dead. MANY are going down the broad way to the destruction of their mortal body as they are led astray by false prophets from the narrow Way that leads to His life. He IS RISEN now and not dead.

    Do not let any man beguile you of your reward…..the eternal, heavenly life of Jesus that is supposed to appear in our mortal flesh in His name which makes our “man”…our mortal body…strong and gives us “perfect soundness” so that we may display His glory in this dark and dying world.

    Acts 3:14-21 KJV
    (14) But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;
    (15) And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; w
    hereof we are witnesses.


    The Just One shall live by faith. His life shall appear in our mortal flesh.

    (16) And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
    (17) And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
    (18) But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
    (19) Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
    (20) And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
    (21) Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.


    The rich men….the rich pastors…have rejoiced in the “day of slaughter”…..as the Just One is being condemned and killed out of the lives of those they do not feed with the good news of our salvation in the here and now. They receive their riches by those that they are deceiving.

    James 5:1-6 KJV
    (1) Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
    (2) Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
    (3) Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
    (4) Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
    (5) Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
    (6) Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.


    We shall receive the promise of His appearing, eternal life in this earth but we have need of patience and DO His will.

    Hebrews 10:35-38 KJV
    (35) Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
    (36) For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.


    For yet a little while, He that IS COMING will arrive and not tarry. His life shall appear in our mortal flesh.

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


    But there are currently MANY deceivers who have entered into this world who are denying that Jesus Christ IS COMING in our mortal flesh. They are preventing His life from appearing in those that they are deceiving…..and the deception is widespread. We must contend for the faith.

    2 John 1:6-9 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 must earnestly contend for the faith….

    Jude 1:3-8 KJV
    (3) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

    ….for certain men have crept in among us unawares…who deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

    (4) For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

    They take many down in their destruction of the mortal body from off this earth.

    (5) I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

    They are kept in darkness as they have no understanding as they perish from off this earth.

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

    We must not sit together with them or we are also destroyed under His wrath. This is the “fornication” that we are not to give ourselves over to. We must flee from the “fornication” by coming out from among them and be separate.

    (7) Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
    (8) Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities
