    Peace unto you.

    The glory of God shall be revealed in us……the manifestation of the sons of God to this dark and dying world who will see the manifestation of the life of Jesus in our mortal flesh which shall be swallowed up with His eternal life.

    Our mortal body shall be swallowed up with His eternal life in this earth. We don’t “die and go to Heaven” for this salvation of our mortal flesh is for the here-and-now. The good news is for NOW as Jesus is alive NOW and not dead. He already died for us. If we are dying, it is because of sin for the wages of sin is death. We must put to death the deeds of the body with the Spirit so that His life appears.

    The eternal life of Jesus shall be manifested in our mortal flesh so that this world may see His appearing glory in us.

    Again, the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice of the Lord Jesus in our bodies will bring forth (manifest…shine) the life of Jesus also in our mortal flesh for this world to see.

    The MANY false prophets though come forth to remove this keeping of His “daily” so that the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the flesh of any person as all that are going to “church” are perishing away to the grave. The antichrist is denying that He is coming in the flesh...our mortal flesh.

    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.


    Not every church goer shall hear and believe in this. They will mock it: where is the promise of His coming? Where is this eternal life of His being made manifest? They will persecute those who will hear what the Spirit is saying and will hate them and cast out their name’s as evil.

    They will mock: “let the LORD be glorified”….let Him appear in your mortal flesh.

    But to those who will hear and tremble at His Word, He shall appear in our mortal flesh to our joy and they shall be ashamed.

    Isaiah 66:5-6 KJV
    (5) Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
    (6) A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompence to his enemies.


    They will persecute us but the sufferings are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us...in our mortal flesh as His eternal life shall be made manifest in this earth.

    Romans 8:18-26 KJV
    (18) For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

    We…the sons of God…shall be manifested to this dark and dying world as His life is made manifest in our mortal flesh.

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


    The creation itself is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God so that itself is delivered from the bondage of decay (corruption).

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


    We are waiting for the redemption of our mortal bodies in this earth. We receive the “deposit” of the Spirit within our earthen vessel….the mortal body….and use the Spirt to bring forth fruits of righteousness unto the manifestation of the life of Jesus in our mortal flesh. He gives us power to become the sons of God through His Spirit.

    (23) And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

    We are saved by hope in this. Hope that is “seen” is not hope. We hope for that which we do not see yet…..the manifestation of the life of Jesus in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in the here-and-now. We hope and wait patiently for the appearing of the life of Jesus in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in this life.

    (24) For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
    (25) But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
    (26) Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.


    We are to do the will of God so that we might receive the promise....the promise of the eternal life of Jesus appearing in our mortal flesh in this earth.

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


    For yet a "little while" , He (Jesus) that IS COMING, will arrive and not tarry. Behold, I AM COMING SOON....as His life appears in our mortal flesh. We appear with Him in glory for His life is made manifest in our earthen vessel for the world to see.

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


    We are to hear the Spirit and trust in Christ so that we are to be to the praise of His glory when His life is revealed in our mortal flesh to this world. Blessed are those who hear and believe in what they have not seen yet.

    Ephesians 1:11-14 KJV
    (11) In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
    (12) That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.


    We hear the Word of Truth…the good news of our salvation in the here-and-now….and believe and are sealed with that Holy Spirit of the promise. The promise is His eternal life in this earthen vessel. Our mortal flesh is saved. Our souls are saved for we shall be persecuted by the unbelievers in the churches of fleshly-minded men who will not believe in what they hear the Spirit saying to them. Our souls shall have grief by those unbelievers around us. those close to us and even our own families will not even believe. But, when He shall appear (His life in our mortal flesh), then no man can take away our joy.

    (13) In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

    We receive the Spirit….the earnest of our inheritance…until the redemption of the “purchased possession” which is the mortal body. When His life…His glory…is revealed, we also participate in His glory as His life is made manifest in our mortal body of which this dark world can see and believe and will praise God in heaven above.

    (14) Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

    The “promise” is His eternal life of which false teachers want to beguile us of by their teachings of the doctrines and carnal commandments of men that are not saving the mortal flesh of anyone that is using them. Do not listen to men who preach their good words and fair speeches in order to lead us astray from the pathway to everlasting life in this earth.

    1 John 2:24-26 KJV
    (24) Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
    (25) And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
    (26) These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.


    Our mortal body…the “earthen vessel”…. is the purchased possession. The Spirit is deposited in our mortal body. It is the “temple” of the Holy Spirit which is in us. We must not sit together with those who "seduce us" with their flattering words or we perish with them as we become "one flesh" with them in their destruction. We must glorify God in our mortal bodies by not being joined with the churches of fleshly-minded men where no flesh is being saved. There is a severe "famine" in them where the Word of Truth is not being preached. There is death in them as they walk after the flesh and not after the Spirit as they fight and war with each other over who is the "right church" and who are the evil ones. They argue among themselves over who is accounted the "greatest" among them.

    1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV
    (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.


    By the Spirit deposited in us do we “kill” (mortify) the deeds of the body so that we may live the eternal life of Jesus in this earthen vessel.

    Romans 8:10-17 KJV
    (10) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

    The Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead shall also make alive our mortal bodies. The Spirit “dwells” in us in peace if we live after the Spirit at all times. There is a “conflict” within us if we keep living after the flesh. The desires of the Spirit is contrary to the flesh and His Spirit is not dwelling in peace within us when we continue to live according to the flesh.

    (11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

    We, who have His Spirit deposited within us, are debtors not to live after the flesh. If we continue to live after the flesh, we shall die from this earth without the life of Jesus being made manifest in our mortal bodies.

    (12) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
    (13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
    (14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
    (15) For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
    (16) The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:


    We shall be glorified with Him when He appears in our mortal flesh. We are to keep His “daily” sacrifice so that His life shall appear.

    (17) And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

    The Spirit is the “evidence of the purchase” which is “sealed”….as we are sealed with that Holy Spirit of THE promise of His appearing eternal life in our body. The “earthen vessel” is our mortal body.

    “Baruch” means “praise”…as we are to be to the praise of God who first trust in Him (without seeing His appearing life yet) as this dark and dying world shall see His appearing glory in our mortal flesh as the eternal life of Jesus appears there. His appearing eternal life in our mortal flesh is that “evidence which is open” for the world to see.

    The "earthen vessel" shall CONTINUE MANY DAYS.....having eternal life.

    Jeremiah 32:13-18 KJV
    (13) And I charged Baruch before them, saying,
    (14) Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.


    We shall inherit this earth and no enemy shall deceive us any longer.

    (15) For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.
    (16) Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the LORD, saying,


    For some this is a “hard saying” but to those who believe, there is nothing too hard for God to do. He is the God of all flesh and nothing is too hard for Him.

    (17) Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
    (18) Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts, is his name,


    As many that can receive Him, to them who believe on His name He gives the power TO BECOME the sons of God.

    John 1:11-14 KJV
    (11) He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
    (12) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
    (13) Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.


    The Word is made flesh in our mortal flesh when we always DO His will so that the glory of the Father appears in our mortal flesh. The world shall behold His appearing glory in us and will praise the Father in heaven.

    (14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    The sons of God are those who are led by the Spirit of God and do not live according to the flesh in envy and strife and hatred of one another as we see prevalent in all of the churches of fleshly-minded men.

    Romans 8:14 KJV
    (14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

    The churches of fleshly-minded men use their handwriting of church dogmas to get their congregations to accept them in order for them to live according to the flesh as many use them to judge others with….speaking evil of others. Do not let any fleshly-minded man beguile you of your reward….His appearing eternal life in your mortal flesh. The fleshly-minded man uses his carnal commandments and false teachings to lead many astray from the Way of righteousness….that leads to His appearing life in our mortal flesh. The fleshly-minded man has no understanding as he preaches things he ought not be for money’s sake and is himself perishing away in the mortal body to the grave without knowledge. We must not sit together with them in their churches where no mortal flesh is being saved. And there are MANY being led astray by them. We must contend for the faith that was delivered unto us.

    You appear to be saying that if we live for Jesus Now, then his Life will be appearing in our life here.

    Sorry but everythiong in the NT when taken in context points to this happeninh in the next life.

    Dear friends,

    Peace and thank you for reading.



    We are God’s people living in His creation. God created the earth to be inhabited by man. We are to inherit this earth and our days here are to be multiplied as the “days of Heaven upon the earth”....but only if we DO the will of God in Heaven.

    Death is not a “friend” but an enemy that is defeated in victory in our Lord Jesus Christ. This earth is not a “stopover” on our way to Heaven. This earth is not a “layover” (and many think that it is) where many see themselves as “wise” and go to “church” and fight with each other over the handwriting of church dogmas and condemn others to “hell” and then perish from off this earth and go to Heaven where they are glorified and the sinners burn in hell forever and ever. Their expectations shall perish along with our mortal bodies.

    The “sting” of death is sin….and what a sting it will be because of the realization that we have died…we have suffered loss of the mortal body…when we should have inherited His eternal life in the here-and-now. We have been deceived by those who are deceitfully handling/retailing the Word of God without understanding. Our spirits are saved but we suffer loss.

    We have been led astray from the Way that leads to life now and deceived into serving sin by serving and worshipping the handwriting of church dogmas of fleshly-minded men where many fight with each other in their envy and strife and hatred of one another. We have been bitten by the “serpent” who crawls upon his belly minding the earthly things: preaching only for those things ….what to eat, what to drink, what to wear.

    What a "sting" is awaiting for those who are awaiting the day of their death with high hopes and wrong expectations of what should be in the hereafter. The day of their death will be a day of darkness instead when the realization happens that they have been bitten by the serpent that led them astray to their mortal death.

    Let us not worship and serve the handwriting of church dogmas which are not saving the mortal flesh of anyone. Our mortal bodies are destroyed as we suffer loss because the “works of righteousness” of fleshly-minded men were not His works of righteousness. Our works of so-called righteousness instead burn us up with the using. The “elements” burn us.

    Our spirits are saved but we suffer the loss of the mortal body (the temple of God) which should have been made alive by His Spirit in this earth if only we live according to that Spirit. The wrath of God comes upon the children of disobedience (who are going to “church” and serving the handwriting of men) as they perish in the “fire” as God is a consuming fire and our mortal flesh “withers” away as the grass.

    Psalms 90:3-14 KJV
    (3) Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
    (4) For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
    (5) Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.


    We are consumed by His anger as our iniquities are before Him. All of our days pass away in His wrath.

    (6) In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
    (7) For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
    (8) Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
    (9) For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

    (10) The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
    (11) Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
    (12) So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
    (13) Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.
    (14) O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.


    All mortal flesh is as grass which withers “under the sun” of His wrath and then our spirit flies away back to God who gave it. We ourselves are save but as by fire which destroys us. We suffer “loss” of our mortal bodies when we serve the works of the flesh and do not live according to the Spirit and work the works of His righteousness.

    1 Corinthians 3:14-17 KJV
    (14) If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
    (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.


    Men are as trees. Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is cut down and cast into the “fire”.

    Matthew 7:19-23 KJV
    (19) Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
    (20) Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them
    .

    We MUST DO His will in this earth as it is done in Heaven already. The kingdom (reign) of Heaven ….where His will is universally done…. should reign also in this earth in our lives.

    Here is where we display His glory….in the darkness of this earth where His will is NOT being done. Those who are in Heaven are eternal as they live always according to His will. We also, in this earth, are to enter into that reign and live that heavenly life of Jesus in this earth. Our citizenship is in Heaven (without leaving this earth) as we live according to that reign above in this earth. Heaven and its reign intersect in our lives in this earth.

    (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.

    Our “wonderful works” of carnally-thinking men that are supposedly done in His Name (His authority) do NOT save us as we perish from off this earth. The sting of death is sin: depart from me you that work lawlessness. We must DO His will in this earth…the will of the Father who is in Heaven. Those who DO His will abide and those who do not perish as the grass under the sun of His wrath.

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


    The Lord reveals to us His knowledge in the Spirit of Truth. We are to hear and “lose our lives” to save them. We must not go about defending our own church “works of righteousness” and but instead count those things as a loss for the excellency of the KNOWLEDGE of the Christ Jesus our Lord whom we are to serve by having love for one another.

    Philippians 3:4-11 KJV
    (4) Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
    (5) Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
    (6) Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
    (7) But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
    (8) Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,


    We are to be found in Him and not be found defending our own church righteousness in our wrath at the hearing of His voice. We are to be quick to hear and slow to speak and slow to wrath. let us hear and put on Christ and cast off the works of darkness.

    (9) And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
    (10) That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
    (11) If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.


    We are to display His appearing glory in this world….in this dark and dying world. His will is already being fully done in Heaven but here in this earth is where we shall shine as we show forth to this world what it means to truly DO His will as we are to live the eternal life of Jesus in this world.

    The world shall see His appearing eternal life through us (who first trusted in Him without seeing Him yet) and will believe. We are the “first fruits” who first trust in His appearing in our mortal flesh without seeing Him yet and those who are Christ’s at His coming (presence) are those in the world who will only believe when they see His life appear in us. Blessed are those who believe without seeing Him (yet)...the first fruits of Christ.

    Matthew 6:9-10 KJV
    (9) After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
    (10) Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.


    Do not let a fleshly-minded man (who is perishing away in his mortal flesh to the grave) convince you otherwise with his deceitful flattery and deceitful handling of the Word of God for his own unjust gain.

    We have all not been fed with the Word of Truth in the churches of men where there is a great “famine”. Even if we no longer go to “church”, we still take their programming of “we all have to die” with us in our mindset when Jesus already died for us so that we might have His everlasting, heavenly life in this earth. Jesus was sent into this world so that the world might be saved through Him.

    The fleshly-minded man has no understanding as he is only minding the earthly things: how to get paid for preaching in order to get his necessities met….what to eat, what to drink, what to wear. He doesn’t understand the good news of our Lord who God sent into this world so that we might have His life now in this world.

    The fleshly-minded man has no understanding as the good news (gospel) of Christ is hid from their minds as they handle the Word of God deceitfully in order to literally feed their bellies (their “god”).

    It is hid to them that are “lost”…that is, PERISHING….as they are actively perishing from this earth as their mortal bodies wither away to the grave without the life of Jesus being made manifest in their mortal flesh. Let us not sit together with the “son of perdition” or we are destroyed along with them. One bad apple spoils the whole group. We commit “fornication” when we sit together with them and we sin against our own mortal body as we become “one flesh” with them in their destruction from this earth.

    2 Corinthians 4:1-4 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.

    We perish from this earth because of sin as the wages of sin is death. If we war with each other over the various church dogmas contrived by fleshly-minded men, we are then serving the flesh….serving sin…and we perish. We must put to death the deeds of the flesh with His Spirit so that we may truly LIVE in this world. That life is the life of Jesus and He is alive now forevermore.

    Again if we are worshipping and serving the handwriting of church dogmas where we fight among ourselves (serving the flesh in our envy and strife and hatred of one another), then we shall die. But if the Spirit of Him shall dwell in us (as we are always led by the Spirit), then our MORTAL BODIES shall live. We don’t perish from off this earth but continue to live.

    Romans 8:11-14 KJV
    (11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
    (12) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
    (13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
    (14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.


    Mortal death is NOT a “friend” but an enemy that is defeated in victory in our Lord Jesus Christ who died for our sins already and IS RISEN NOW so that we might live His eternal life NOW in this earth. The enemies of the cross of Christ do not agree. The antichrist denies that Jesus IS COMING in the flesh…our mortal flesh. The mortal flesh is an awful thing according to them…but we know that our mortal body is the TEMPLE OF GOD who is eternal. This mortal body must put on the immortal.

    Jesus was sent into this world so that this world might be saved. Whosoever believes in (INTO) Him should NOT PERISH from this world but have EVERLASTING life….His everlasting life as Jesus is alive now and is not dead. Let us not listen to the false teachers who are all perishing away to the grave and have no inheritance in this earth. They are taking MULTITUDES down with them.

    John 3:16-19 KJV
    (16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    (17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.


    TRUE believing is doing His will. We must have active faith. We must show forth our faith with good deeds. We are a “dead church” if we say we are “alive” but are without His works of righteousness. We must have love for one another.

    (18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    Those who do not truly believe perish as they are condemned already. They love their own evil deeds more. They love darkness (their envying, strife and hatred of one another in the churches of men) rather than Light. No church wants to hear that their deeds are evil. They do not want to hear that their handwriting of church dogmas are evil and will not come to the Light.

    (19) And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    Those who love darkness more than light are deceived into going to “church” by the false prophet who comes to them as a minister of “righteousness”….coming to us in “sheep’s clothing”…with his handwriting of church dogmas…and leads them away from the Way of Truth (do to others as you would have them do to you….have love for one another) that leads to His appearing life in our mortal flesh.

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

    MANY, many have and are going down the broad way to their destruction of their mortal bodies from this earth.

    (13) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
    (14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
    (15) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.


    The false prophet’s presence is in accordance with the working of Satan (who has the power of death) and deceives those who are perishing in the mortal flesh from this earth because they do not receive the LOVE of the Truth …by DOING IT.

    They are perishing away from this earth in their mortal bodies and believe THE lie that they are doing their “wonderful works” in His name…in His authority. They take pleasure in unrighteousness as they love to fight and war with others over their handwriting of church dogmas....the "power". We can see this in any forum where they apparently love the theological arguing and cut down each other in their struggles among themselves about who is accounted the “greatest” among them. They take pleasure in their unrighteousness and are perishing.

    2 Thessalonians 2:9-14 KJV
    (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:
    (12) That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


    But those who are sanctified of the Spirit and belief of the Truth shall hear and understand the good news to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ whose eternal, heavenly life shall be made manifest in our mortal flesh which keeps us in this earth.

    When He shall appear in our mortal flesh, we shall appear with Him in glory. Those who believe in (INTO) Him shall NOT PERISH but have everlasting life where the old things of death, sorrow, pain have passed away. We are taken out of this present evil age where we perish under His wrath and enter into His rest where all things become new. This is a present thing.

    (13) But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
    (14) Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.


    Jesus died for us already so that we do not have to die. “I AM”…. the Way, the Truth and the Life. Jesus IS ALIVE NOW (I AM) and not dead so why are the false prophets preaching their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave?

    It was appointed for our Lord to die once for our sins, but after this the judgment as those who truly do not believe (no matter what they are professing in their churches) are perishing away in their mortal flesh to the grave in their destruction from this earth.

    They are NOT LOOKING for Him to appear the second time in our humiliated bodies which are to be transformed into His glorious body. The antichrist is busy denying that the Lord IS COMING in the flesh…our mortal flesh.

    Hebrews 9:26-28 KJV
    (26) For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
    (27) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    (28) So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvatio
    n.

    The MANY enemies of the cross of Christ are NOT LOOKING for the Savior to change our humiliated-by-sin mortal bodies to be fashioned like unto His glorious body. When He shall appear, we shall appear with Him in glory. Our citizenship is in Heaven where we seek those things that are above....love, peace, joy, gentleness. All of these things above rule in Heaven and they are to rule in our lives in this earth and the Savior shall transform our earthen vessels into His heavenly one without us leaving this earth.

    Philippians 3:17-21 KJV
    (17) Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
    (18) (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
    (19) Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
    (20) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
    (21) Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.


    The false teachers are not looking for that “blessed hope” and that glorious appearing of our Savior in our mortal flesh. The enemies of the cross of Christ want you to live according to their envy and strife and hatred of one another….serving and worshipping their handwriting of church dogmas which is living after the flesh and not after the Spirit.

    They are not truly teaching us to deny the ungodliness and worldly lusts as they are behaving as friends of the world as they fight and war with each other over their handwriting of church dogmas. They are not teaching the message of the cross of Christ to die to sin so that His resurrected life appears in our mortal bodies in the here and now.

    Titus 2:11-14 KJV
    (11) For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
    (12) Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
    (13) Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
    (14) Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

    Christ in you, the hope of glory.

    We hope for the manifestation of the life of Jesus in this earthen vessel so that the nations of this world shall see what it truly means to do His will. They will see the manifestation of the life of Jesus in us and praise God in Heaven. We (who first trust in Him without seeing Him yet being made manifest) are to be to the praise of God.

    Colossians 1:26-28 KJV
    (26) Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
    (27) To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
    (28) Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:


    We are to be to the praise of His glory who first trust in Christ after we have heard the Word of Truth (of which we haven’t been hearing in the churches of fleshly-minded men).

    We hear the good news (gospel) of our salvation and we believe and receive the Holy Spirit of the promise of eternal life that will be made manifest in the purchased possession (our mortal body in this earth) unto the praise of His glory….as the nations of this world shall see and praise Him.

    Ephesians 1:11-14 KJV
    (11) In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
    (12) That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
    (13) In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
    (14) Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.


    Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe. They are the “firstfruits” and are to be to the praise of His glory as the world will only believe when they see the appearing of Christ in us and will praise God in Heaven (Thomas: “My Lord and My God”).

    John 20:28-29 KJV
    (28) And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
    (29) Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.


    Christ the firstfruits are those who believe without seeing Him yet. When the life of Jesus appears in our mortal flesh giving us (the firstfruits) His eternal life in this earth, then those of the world will see Him appear through us and will praise God. Every man in his own order shall be made alive.

    1 Corinthians 15:22-23 KJV
    (22) For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
    (23) But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.


    He begets us (the firstfruits) again unto a LIVING hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Jesus IS ALIVE now and He is in Heaven living an eternal life….being incorruptible, undefiled and not fading away. His appearing eternal life is in our inheritance in this earth.

    1 Peter 1:3-8 KJV
    (3) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
    (4) To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
    (5) Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
    (6) Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:


    Our own church people shall persecute us for our faith but we are to endure the trial of our faith with goodness thereby participating in the sufferings of Christ. We are to be found unto praise and honor and glory at the APPEARING OF JESUS CHRIST whose life shall appear visibly to the outside world.

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

    We, the firstfruits, have not seen Him yet but love Him and believe and rejoice as we await His appearing in our mortal flesh. NO man shall then take away our joy.

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

    He begets us again unto a LIVING hope….not a dying one. If we are indeed risen with Christ now, we must seek those things which are above. We must die to sin and seek those things which are above.

    Colossians 3:1-4 KJV
    (1) If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
    (2) Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
    (3) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.


    We are dead to sin so that Christ within us shall appear in glory. When He shall appear, we appear with Him in glory in this earth as the world shall see and believe and praise the Father….My Lord and My God.

    (4) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

    We are the living, many infallible proofs to this world that Jesus is indeed alive now

    God is merciful towards us and delivers us from wicked and unreasonable men.

    The Son of God comes to give us an understanding so that we may know Him who is true. We are to be found of Him “awaking” to His righteousness when we hear His voice in the Spirit of Truth.

    The good news is preached to the “poor”…the poor in spirit….the poor in breath as they will use “little strength” towards what they hear. They will be quick to hear and slow to speak and slow to wrath. They will hear the good news. Those who will use many words…sin is present.

    He preaches deliverance to the “captives” who have been taken captive by the flattering words of false prophets and are going to their “churches” where they are not being fed the Word of Truth.

    He frees those that are “bruised”…that is, crushed. We must be found of Him “crushed” in heart towards what we hear. Let our laughter turn to mourning...being crushed in our hearts.

    We must hear and be found of Him humble and of a contrite spirit.

    The men who will be proud and full of wrath...and speaking evil... towards what they hear the Spirit saying will not be healed. They shall not be delivered. They shall not understand (no sight recovered). They will not be found of His requirements to be healed, delivered.

    Luke 4:18-19 KJV
    (18) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
    (19) To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.


    The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit….a broken and contrite heart.

    Psalms 51:17 KJV
    (17) The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

    The "sacrifices" of fools are their many words of wrath towards what they hear. And they do not consider what they do as evil...when it is sinning.

    Ecclesiastes 5:1-3 KJV
    (1) Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.
    (2) Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
    (3) For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.


    The LORD is near unto those that are found of a broken heart and saves those who are of a contrite spirit.

    Psalms 34:16-18 KJV
    (16) The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
    (17) The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
    (18) The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.


    We hear His Spirit and we must be found of Him “poor” in words and of a contrite spirit….trembling at His Word. Where is the place of His rest? His Spirit rests in those who are of a broken heart. Let us fear God and keep His commandments....especially when He speaks to us. He resists the proud.

    Isaiah 66:1-4 KJV
    (1) Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
    (2) For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word
    .

    Those who are found proud and full of wrath towards what they hear will speak evil of those sent by Him to preach His words. They will “kill the messenger” with malicious words. He that kills an “ox” (those sent to tread out the Word of God to their ears) is as if he killed a man. They will be found behaving badly towards the hearing of His words and will be found disesteeming the blood of the covenant by which they are sanctified as a common thing as they will not keep it (having brotherly love). We must be found of Him remembering to have brotherly love and not treat it as a common thing to be broken.

    (3) He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

    When He calls us, let us be found of a broken and contrite spirit and not be found “asleep” to His righteousness and behaving badly towards what we hear the Spirit saying.

    (4) I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

    It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. We must be found of Him serving Him in fear and reverence.

    Hebrews 10:29-31 KJV
    (29) Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
    (30) For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
    (31) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living Go
    d.

    The Lord opens His mouth and teach us….

    Matthew 5:1-6 KJV
    (1) And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
    (2) And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,


    ….happy (blessed) are those who are of a few words….being poor in breath to speak words…..being “poor in spirit”. They will be happy towards what they hear the Lord speaking in the Spirit of Truth that they hear.

    (3) Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    Happy will be those who will “mourn” as they are crushed in their hearts. They shall be comforted.

    (4) Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

    Happy are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. They will not perish from off this earth but shall continue to live…having His eternal life in this earth. The wicked shall perish from off this earth.

    (5) Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

    Happy are those that do hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled. They will hear the Spirit and be filled with the knowledge of our Lord.

    (6) Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

    Let us hear His voice in the Spirit of Truth and awake and come forth and do good towards Him unto the resurrection of life.

    John 5:28-29 KJV
    (28) Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
    (29) And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life
    ; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.


    Let us hear the “trumpet” and “awake” to His righteousness. Let us “arise from the dead”…the “dead” in sins and trespasses…and Christ shall give us Light. Our sight shall be recovered as we shall see…we shall understand. Let us be found of Him letting brotherly love continue so that we may enter in to His knowledge.

    Ephesians 5:14-20 KJV
    (14) Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
    (15) See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
    (16) Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
    (17) Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is
    .

    Let us not be found of Him “drunk” on the wine of wrath where we forget to have brotherly love and speak evil. Let us hear the Spirit and be filled with it and rejoice within our hearts to the Lord and be thankful for all things unto Him.

    (18) And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
    (19) Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
    (20) Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

    We have a commandment to “arise” from the “dead” and let us go from where we are. We show the world that we love the Father when we "go away" from the churches of men.

    We must depart out of the churches of fleshly-minded men and be separate from them. Why seek the Living among those who are “dead” in their trespasses and sins and will not believe in what they hear? Let us not be unequally yoked together with them. What do the believers have in common with the unbelievers in the churches of men? Let us “awake” to His righteousness and cast off the works of darkness and depart and not look back.

    John 14:30-31 KJV
    (30) Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
    (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.


    We must “RISE UP” and “let us go”….because the life of Jesus that is supposed to appear in our mortal flesh (the Son of man) is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.

    Mark 14:41-42 KJV
    (41) And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
    (42) Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.


    The Son of man goes (withdraws, sinks out of sight) from the lives of many because of the MANY false teachers who come to take the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice out of our lives so that His life never appears in our mortal bodies. His life is being aborted by wicked men who have “crept in unawares”….as men “slept”…that is, as they have become forgetful to have love for one another.

    Mark 14:21 KJV
    (21) The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.

    They come to take Jesus out of our lives so that His life never appears in our moral flesh. They come with swords….causing divisions among us. They comes as kings with staves rather than being servants.

    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 …always keeping the dying of our Lord in our mortal body (the temple), then they have no power against us. But if we fall “asleep” to His righteousness, they use this power of darkness to lead us astray and down the broad way to our destruction from 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.

    If any man come unto you and bring not His teaching (the daily teaching in the temple to have love for one another), then receive him not into your house neither bid him “rejoice”. Those who do are partakers of his evil deeds.

    2 John 1:7-11 KJV
    (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.
    (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.

    When Judas came to take Jesus away, he said “hail, master”…that is in Greek: REJOICE, master. MANY are following in the footsteps of Judas as they come with the “kiss”…the flattering lips…and want us to “rejoice” with them in their churches where we pay them money and they get their earthly needs met.

    Matthew 26:48-50 KJV
    (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
    .

    Their “kiss” is feigned as they use feigned words to flatter us and deceive us into going to their churches. They come with “swords” though….causing divisions among us and teaching things that are contrary to the teaching of Christ that we have learned. We must avoid them as they do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ but their own belly and use the “kiss”…the good words and fair speeches…in order to deceive us.

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

    The rich pastors…. who are only feeding themselves literally…. rejoice in the churches of men as they get their earthly needs met by preaching. Yet, their preaching is not feeding anyone spiritually as they have no understanding of the good news of Christ. They will speak evil of those who will preach the Word of Truth.

    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.


    They are minding earthly things (what to eat, drink and wear) as they joyfully preach for these things in mind. They rejoice…..they nourish their own hearts….when there is a severe “famine” of hearing the Word of God spoken in truth and sincerity.

    It has been a “day of slaughter” as the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of those that they are deceiving and leading astray down the broad way to their destruction.

    (5) Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

    The Just One (the life of Jesus) is being “killed” out of the lives of MANY.

    (6) Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

    Yet, His people love it so as they desire to go and sit in their churches and listen to the rich pastors who have no understanding when destruction and misery are in their ways. The Prince of life is being “killed” out of so many lives when God has already raised Jesus from the dead so that we might have His life appear in our mortal flesh now.

    Acts 3:14-26 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; whereof we are witnesses.


    The Just One shall live in us by our faith as we are to believe INTO Him. He shall give our mortal bodies “perfect soundness” when He appears in us. We are to have faith in His appearing. That faith is being overthrown by those who are only preaching themselves (our rulers). When He shall appear, we shall appear with Him in glory

    (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.

    Through ignorance do we do it as we listen to our “rulers”.

    (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.

    We must change our minds and be converted so that our sins may be blotted out…..

    (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 yo
    u:
    (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.


    He that IS COMING shall arrive and not tarry. “Behold, I am coming quickly”. The Just One shall live by faith.

    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.
    (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.


    Let us not cast our confidence away. Let us have patience so that after we have done the will of God, we shall receive the promise: the appearing life of Jesus in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in this earth. Those who “dwell on the earth” in their covetousness, envy, strife, etc shall hear and be tempted to speak evil of what they hear the Spirit saying and those who believe in it.

    Revelation 3:10-11 KJV
    (10) Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the ear
    th.

    Behold, I come QUICKLY. Let us hold fast that which we have and let no man take our crown as those who “dwell on the earth” will speak evil of us for our faith in Him.

    (11) Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

    Whosoever believes INTO (Greek: “into”) Him should not perish from this earth but have His everlasting life.

    John 3:16 KJV
    (16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    The Lord’s patience with us is our salvation as He is longsuffering towards us not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

    2 Peter 3:9 KJV
    (9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance…

    We must depart from the churches of men where NO mortal flesh is being saved. There is a severe famine among them…a famine of hearing the Word of Truth as the “shepherds” are only feeding themselves (getting their earthly needs met by getting paid). They love to have the preeminence (being “first) among us.

    Should not the shepherds be feeding the flocks……the people of God…with the Word of Truth.

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


    Instead, they rejoice and nourish themselves and take away the righteousness of the people. The people are being “killed” for the life of Jesus is being prevented from ever appearing in the mortal flesh of those that they are leading astray. They are not feeding the scattered flock of God with the Word of Truth.

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


    But our merciful God shall have pity upon us and deliver His flock out of their “mouth”. No longer will we be “meat” for them. No longer will our shepherds be feeding themselves as the Lord comes to feed His people and deliver them from their deceptions. The shepherds shall no longer feed themselves at our expense.

    Ezekiel 34:7-11 KJV
    (7) Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
    (8) As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;
    (9) Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
    (10) Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
    (11) For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.


    We are to hear the Spirit of Truth and depart from the churches of men where their shepherds are not truly feeding His flock but are only feeding themselves…as they preach for pay in order to get their earthly needs met. They are only minding earthly things and not the things of God.

    We are to follow in the footsteps of Jesus and “go away” unto the Father by departing from the churches of fleshly-minded men going out into the world and being separate from them.

    It is “expedient” that we “go away” so that He may send the Comforter (the Spirit of Truth) unto us as we shall be persecuted from those we leave. They will speak evil of us as “evil doers” and will think it strange that we shall no longer run with them after their church things but the Lord shall comfort us through His Spirit of Truth that He will send us when we depart from the churches of men.

    John 16:7-15 KJV
    (7) Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
    (8) And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:


    The Spirit of Truth shall come unto us (where we do not need any man to teach us) and will reprove the churches of men because they will not believe on Him and will behave badly towards those who will believe. They will show that they do NOT know the Father nor the Son as they will stay put in their churches and will “flame” those who believe and depart from them. They will speak evil…slandering those who will believe and “go away” from them.

    (9) Of sin, because they believe not on me;
    (10) Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;


    The “prince of this world” is the “shepherd” of the church who loves to be first among us. When we leave his company, it is a “judgment” call for we are not to keep company with those who are called “brothers” but are covetous. We will no longer sit with them and listen to those who love to be first among us and are only preaching themselves.

    (11) Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
    (12) I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.


    When we leave, the Spirit of Truth shall come unto us and guide us unto all truth. We must follow in His footsteps. He is the Way.

    (13) Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
    (14) He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
    (15) All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.


    “Diotrephes” signifies all of those who love to be first among the churches of men. The “prince of this world” will behave badly toward those who come preaching the Word of Truth to their congregations. They will not put up with it.

    3 John 1:9-12 KJV
    (9) I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

    The “prince of this world” will prate against those who will come to preach the Word of Truth with “malicious words” and will not have his congregations receive those who do come to speak it to their hearing ears.

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

    The “prince of this world” will want you to follow after his evil behavior towards those who will come to preach the Word of Truth and towards those who will hear and receive it.

    But we know that he that does good is of God and but he that does evil has not seen God. Those who will do evil will show that they do not know God nor the Son even though they claim they do.

    (11) Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
    (12) Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.


    Whosoever abides in Him will not sin…speak evil against those sent to speak the Word of Truth to their ears. Whosoever will not bridle their tongue…speaking evil (sin is present), will show that they do not know God (no matter what they profess in their church).

    LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU. Do not follow after the evil behavior of the “prince of this world”…the “Diotrephes” of the churches who loves to be first and will want you to join along with him in evil speaking and evil behavior towards those who will speak and receive the Word of Truth.

    1 John 3:6-13 KJV
    (6) Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
    (7) Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.


    He that commits sin is of the devil. The “Diotrephes” of the churches will manifest himself to us all. He is the “man of sin” who exalt himself and will not cease sinning (speaking evil) and will claim that he is doing these things in the authority of God within the churches of men and will want his congregations to follow him in doing them.

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

    Those who born of God will not commit sin. They will be quick to hear the Word of God spoken in truth and sincerity in Christ and will be slow to speak and slow to wrath. The wrath of man does not work His righteousness.

    (9) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

    In this the children of God are made manifest: they will work the righteousness of God.

    In this the children of the devil (slanderer) are made manifest: they will not do the righteousness of God as they will speak evil of what they hear in their wrath and not love those brothers sent to speak His Word to their ears.

    (10) In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
    (11) For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
    (12) Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.


    Don’t marvel that the “church” world will hate us.

    (13) Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

    Marvel not because the Lord already has told us what should happen so that we are not tripped up by them. They will put us out of their churches (gatherings). They will “kill” us with their malicious words…not showing love towards us. They will speak evil of us as “evil doers” and cast us out…and all the while think that they are doing God “service” for doing so. They will manifest themselves as the "children of the devil" by their evil words and deeds.

    John 16:1-4 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.


    REMEMBER that “I told you of them” when the time shall come when they will happen to us.

    (4) But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.

    “Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?” 2 Thessalonians 2:5 = John 16:4.

    The man of sin will be revealed. He is the man of destruction who is already being judged and those who keep company with him are being destroyed in their mortal flesh from this earth. This is why we must depart from their churches. He (the many who love to be first) is the “Diotrephes” of the churches who will oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God (the Word) or that is worshipped.

    He…as God…sits in the churches showing himself that he is God….that is, that he is doing these evil things in God’s authority.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3-13 KJV
    (3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
    (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

    Remember….this is from John 16:4 that Paul is reciting here.

    (5) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

    They will cast you out of their churches for believing. Let us not “linger” around like Lot did in Sodom or it will get much worse (their persecutions of those who do). Pray that your “flight” does not happen in the “winter” as their love will be completely cold towards you for the belief of the Word of Truth. Get out while the getting is good and not linger around or the tribulations shall increase.

    (6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

    God will not destroy the righteous with the wicked. We must come out from among them. Lot lingered and had to be “taken out of the way”.

    (7) For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.


    The Wicked shall be revealed as the “fire” of persecutions of us will come out of their mouths as they “flame” us calling us “evil doers”. We are not to “look back” and return evil for their evil….participating in the sufferings of Christ by doing so.

    They will be consumed by the “Spirit of His mouth” as they will speak evil at the hearing His words of life and spirit (the "holy angels"). They will not be able to put up with what they hear and it will “torment” them.

    We must keep the sacrifice of our Lord (the Lamb) in our mortal bodies when they speak evil of us. The “brightness of His coming” is that keeping of His sacrifice which will “torment” them. The children of the devil will be revealed by their unrighteous acts which shows that they do not know the Father nor the Son.

    (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:

    The man of destruction is ALREADY at work in every church gathering for NO FLESH is being saved in them. Their presence (coming) is according to the working of Satan to destroy those who do not receive the love of the Truth (by doing it) so that they might be saved. The mystery of iniquity is ALREADY at work in every gathering as no mortal flesh is being saved. We must depart out of them or we are destroyed right along with them.

    (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:
    (12) That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
    (13) But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:


    We are not to be “terrified” by the churches of the unbelievers when they will “flame” us with their tongues. This is an evident token of their destruction but to us of salvation as it will be given to us to suffer for His sake when they do.

    Philippians 1:28-29 KJV
    (28) And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
    (29) For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;


    They will be tormented with “fire”….as they will not cease in their evil speaking which sets them on fire so to speak. The tongue is a fire which will bring them grief and wrath. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (rage towards those who will believe).

    This is a MANIFEST token to us of the righteous judgment of God (the "brimstone")upon them so that we may suffer with Him and be counted worthy of the kingdom of God which is eternal and not dying kingdom.

    2 Thessalonians 1:5-10 KJV
    (5) Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:

    There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth as their own evil-speaking tongues shall bring them trouble as God shall recompense tribulation upon them that will trouble us.

    (6) Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;

    We must die to sin and rest with the apostles and the prophets who also suffered persecutions with Christ. We hear their words as interpreted by Christ and rest in what we hear while the same words will bring "torment" to the wicked who will not have rest/peace when they hear it.

    (7) And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

    The “mighty angels” are His words that will bring them torment as they will not hear and will not obey the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ. There will be no rest for the wicked as they will behave very badly towards what they hear....not obeying the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    (8) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

    They will be punished with “everlasting destruction” (there will not be any remedy for their evil behavior until they perish from off this earth). There will be NO MORE SACRIFICE for their continuous sins…evil speaking. There will be no remedy until they perish from off this earth for their willful sins and will not participate in the glory of His power when He shall come to be glorified in His saints that will hear His words of life and spirit (the mighty angels) and will believe in that testimony. His life shall appear in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life….of which those who will not believe will not inherit (like Esau).

    (9) Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
    (10) When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day
    .

    They will be “tormented” with fire (evil speaking…the tongue is a fire) and brimstone (the righteous judgment of God upon them which is a manifest token of their destruction).

    There will be NO REMEDY for them and they will be tormented in the presence of the holy angels (the words of life and spirit that they will not be able to tolerate). They will be tormented in the presence of the Lamb as we will keep His sufferings by not returning evil for their evil. We are to keep the sacrifice of the Lamb by not returning evil for evil.

    Revelation 14:10-13 KJV
    (10) The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

    The wicked shall not have rest. There will be no peace….only weeping and gnashing of teeth. We do not want to follow after their evil behavior.

    (11) And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

    When the wicked are revealed by their evil behavior, we must have patience and keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus whose life shall appear in our mortal flesh.

    (12) Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

    Blessed (happy) are those who “die in the Lord”….by keeping His death in our mortal bodies in the face of the persecutions of those churches of men who will not believe His words….the holy angels…the words of life and spirit….the words of eternal life.

    (13) And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

    The rich pastors….shepherds who are only feeding themselves and not the flock…rejoice in this “day of slaughter” and the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of anyone that they are “pastoring”. There is currently a severe famine in all of the churches of men and there is rejoicing (hurt not the oil and the wine) of those who are preaching themselves in their own authority and getting their earthly needs met....getting paid to preach.

    Yet, there is forgiveness as our Lord ABUNDANTLY pardons those who will turn from their wickedness.

    James 5:5-6 KJV
    (5) Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.


    The Just One is being “killed” out of the lives of many as His life is being taken away from their congregations with their deceit.

    Their “feet are swift to shed blood.” Their throat is an open tomb…with their tongues they have used deceit….the poison of asps is under their lips. He does not resist. He does not open His mouth.

    (6) Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

    Behold, there is “joy and gladness”….and “killing sheep”. Their message to those who keep company with them: “let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die”. They are not looking for the life of Jesus to be made manifest in their mortal flesh as they do not have knowledge of the good news of our Lord and Savior for they are serving their own belly and not the Lord. They are busy preaching for earthly things: what to eat and drink….and are not feeding anyone that they are supposedly ministering to.

    Isaiah 22:12-14 KJV
    (12) And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:
    (13) And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die.
    (14) And it was revealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.


    Where is His appearing eternal life in this earth?

    Who shall declare His generation? His life is being cut off out of the land of the living by the wicked and the rich. He made His grave with the wicked and with the rich in His DEATHS (in Hebrew, it is plural). His plural “deaths” shows us that His life is being “killed” off out of the MANY who are being led astray by the wicked and rich in their churches. The Just One is being “killed” out of His people as NO FLESH is being saved in any church.

    The wicked do “violence” (destruction and misery are in their ways…the way of peace they have not known) and the rich use deadly, poisonous deceit in their mouth to lead many astray from the Way of righteousness.

    Jesus never did these things and they don’t follow after His example.

    Isaiah 53:8-9 KJV
    (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.
    (9) And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.


    He did not sin nor was deceit (guile) found in His mouth and yet His example (Jesus is the Way we are to go) is not being followed in the churches of fleshly-minded men who have turned everyone to his own way.

    1 Peter 2:21-22 KJV
    (21) For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
    (22) Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:


    All have gone out of the Way….

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


    The life of Jesus is being oppressed as His life is not being made manifest in any church. The Just One is being killed out of the lives of so many because of the teachers of deceit who have grown rich through their deceitful handling of the Word of God….and yet He does not resist them.

    James 5:6 KJV
    (6) Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

    He opened not His mouth.

    Isaiah 53:6-7 KJV
    (6) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
    (7) He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.


    The Lord has kept silent….and they thought He was like those who use their mouth for evil and their tongue to “frame deceit”.

    Psalms 50:16-23 KJV
    (16) But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
    (17) Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
    (18) When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
    (19) Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
    (20) Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
    (21) These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
    (22) Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.


    But we shall hear His voice…His reproof…and we are expected to hear and offer the sacrifice of praise to Him and to “order” our conversation aright before Him.

    (23) Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

    There is forgiveness.

    We are to hear and do good towards the hearing of His voice. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his own thoughts and let him RETURN unto the LORD and He will have mercy upon him. Let him return unto God for He will ABUNDANTLY pardon.

    Isaiah 55:6-9 KJV
    (6) Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
    (7) Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
    (8) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
    (9) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts
    .

    Saul (Saul = “Sheol”…the power of death is in the tongue that preaches deceitfully, their throat is an open tomb) who once persecuted and destroyed the church of God obtained MERCY as he did it IGNORANTLY in unbelief.

    1 Timothy 1:12-17 KJV
    (12) And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
    (13) Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.


    The Lord will ABUNDANTLY pardon those wicked who will be counted faithful at the hearing of His voice.

    (14) And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

    Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners and Saul/Paul is the PATTERN to those which should believe on Him unto life everlasting.

    (15) This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
    (16) Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.


    We must hear His voice and believe and glorify God.

    (17) Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners….those who can confess that they are indeed sinners. He does not come to call the “righteous” who say they are without sin but to call those who confess that they are indeed sinners to repentance (to change the mind).

    The "righteous" will hear His voice and go about defending their own church "works of righteousness" that are not saving the mortal flesh of anyone. We must hear and repent and confess our sins and He will abundantly pardon. He will serve us the "meat" of the Word of Truth as we shall be able to understand greater and greater things of the Lord.

    Mark 2:15-17 KJV
    (15) And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.
    (16) And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
    (17) When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentanc
    e.

    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the Truth is not in us…but if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness.

    1 John 1:8-10 KJV
    (8) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
    (9) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


    If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His Word is not in us.

    (10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    Like Saul once did…..even if we have used our mouth as an open grave (leading astray many to destruction) to swallow those whom we deceive by handling the Word of God deceitfully…..thereby, persecuting the church of God and destroying it, we are to hear His call and understand the ABUNDANT grace that He has towards us.

    Even if we have been exceedingly zealous of our church “fathers” transmissions (their handwriting of church dogmas) and have been more “religious” than most, we can be forgiven abundantly if we hear His call and humble ourselves in order for Him to reveal His Son in us. He calls us by His grace...His abundant grace.

    Galatians 1:13-16 KJV
    (13) For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
    (14)
    And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
    (15) But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,

    (16) To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:

    Saul became “Paul” which means “little”….as he humbled himself towards the revelation of the Lord Jesus. He “fell to the earth”…he humbled himself unto the voice of the Lord. He did not contend with it...he did not become full of wrath at what he heard...he did not behave in envy and strife. No....he became humble (Paul = little).

    Acts 9:3-4 KJV
    (3) And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
    (4) And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?


    We are to “gird up the loins of our mind” and be sober….not be found “drunk” with the wine of wrath…towards what we hear. We are to hear the disclosure of Jesus Christ and not be found by Him behaving according to our envy and strife and contentions as we once did in our ignorance…behaving as we once did in the churches of men where there is no knowledge.

    1 Peter 1:13-20 KJV
    (13) Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
    (14) As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

    (15) But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
    (16) Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
    (17) And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:


    We are not redeemed by the church “fathers’” things but with the precious blood of Christ…

    (18) Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
    (19) But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
    (20) Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,


    We must count the church things as a “loss” in order to receive the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus our Lord whose disclosure is the Word of Truth and not the word of men that is busy being preached in the churches of fleshly-minded men.

    We must “lose our lives” to save them. We must count all of our church thoughts and ways as a loss in order to receive His thoughts and ways which are higher than ours.

    Philippians 3:6-11 KJV
    (6) Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
    (7) But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
    (8) Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,


    Let us hear His voice speaking His heavenly knowledge and be found of Him not trying to defend our own works of so-called righteousness….defending our denomination’s handwriting of ordinances. The confidence in our external, fleshly works profits us nothing.

    We show that we know Him by humbling ourselves….being made conformable unto His death. We die to sin at the hearing of His voice. We follow the pattern of Saul/Paul by humbling ourselves (Paul = “little”) at His disclosure. He will abundantly pardon us if we do for He is merciful and will forgive even the chiefest of sinners.

    (9) And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
    (10) That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
    (11) If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.


    If the wicked one will turn from ALL of his sins that he commits and keep all of His statute and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live. He shall NOT DIE. All of his transgressions that he has committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him.

    Ezekiel 18:20-23 KJV
    (20) The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
    (21) But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
    (22) All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.
    (23) Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

    It has been a “day of slaughter”. The rich pastors “slay” those whom they are supposed to be feeding as the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of those they “shepherd”….and yet, they REJOICE.

    They hold themselves not guilty and they that sell them (making merchandise of the sheep) rejoice in their activities: “Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich!”. Their own shepherds (pastors of the churches) do not have pity for them.

    Zechariah 11:4-5 KJV
    (4) Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter;
    (5) Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.


    They follow in the footsteps of Judas who is their “guide” who come to take the appearing life of Jesus out of the lives of many and all for money’s sake.

    They take away the keeping of His “daily” sacrifice in our mortal bodies so that His life never appears in our mortal flesh. And then they want you to live according to their covetousness (the abomination of desolation).

    Acts 1:16-20 KJV
    (16) Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
    (17) For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.


    The love of money is the root of all evil and drowns people in destruction who covet after it.

    The rich pastors who follow after Judas do so for the “reward of iniquity”. They love the wages of unrighteousness…money ill-gotten by deceitful handling of the Word of God. They have purchased a “field of blood” as those who go and sit together with them perish from off this earth. They make haste to shed blood.

    They “fall headlong” after reward….coveting after money…in their “preaching” and do not feel sympathy for those that they are deceiving.

    They “burst asunder in the midst” and “all of the bowels” of MERCY gush out of them. They just do not care as they have no true pity. They say “blessed be the LORD” for I am rich but the “shepherds” of the flock of the slaughter do not pity those they are afflicting as their sympathy gushes out of them and they have none to show to their listeners.

    (18) Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.

    “Aceldama” is broken down into 2 words: : chêleq….which means “smoothness” and “dâm”…..which means “blood” (as that which when shed causes death) of man or an animal.

    Hence, we can conclude that it is the “smooth tongue” that causes the shedding of the blood of those that they are deceiving. The flattering tongue of men causes ruin and destroys those who are being led astray by it as the life of Jesus is not being made manifest among them.

    Let us depart from their “habitation”…. their churches…for they are a “field of blood” purchased with the reward of their iniquity. Let no man dwell in them….let us depart.

    (19) And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
    (20) For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.


    The rich pastors will lament us leaving their churches….but the Lord will give us pastors according to His own heart which shall feed us with His knowledge and understanding. We must depart out of their (the rich pastors’) churches and return to the LORD.

    Jeremiah 3:14-15 KJV
    (14) Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
    (15) And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.


    He sends His pastors according to His own heart out to speak the Word of Truth to those who are held captives in the churches of men so that we may no longer be children tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine (the 4 winds) taught by the “sleight of men and cunning craftiness, whereby they LIE IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.”

    Ephesians 4:11-15 KJV
    (11) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
    (12) For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
    (13) Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
    (14) That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
    (15) But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:


    The flattering tongue of pastors covers up their deceit. It covers up the fullness of their abominations lurking within their heart. A lying tongue hates those that are afflicted by it and a flattering tongue works ruin.

    Proverbs 26:24-28 KJV
    (24) He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;
    (25) When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.
    (26) Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation.
    (27) Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.
    (28) A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.


    Destruction and misery are in their ways….and MANY are following after their pastors’ ruinous (pernicious) ways as NO mortal flesh is being saved.

    2 Peter 2:1-4 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.


    Through covetousness (the abomination of desolation) do they use feigned words (the flattering tongue that works ruin) in order to make merchandise of us. They deny the Lord that bought them as His life is being prevented from appearing in their mortal flesh which would give them His eternal life in this earth. Their judgment does not linger nor does their damnation slumber as they are being destroyed from off this earth as we speak. They are perishing away in their mortal bodies to the grave…and all for the sake of getting paid in order to get their earthly necessities met. Not a great tradeoff.

    (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.

    They are kept in “chains of darkness” as they have NO UNDERSTANDING of the Scriptures nor of the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ. Their understanding is darkened.

    (4) For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

    And people give themselves over to going to their churches where there is destruction and death. They give themselves over to “fornication” by taking the body of Christ ( our mortal body is His) and joining it to those who are preaching things that they ought not be for money’s sake.

    We sin against our own mortal body when we go and attach ourselves to their churches where no flesh is being saved as all are going down the broad way to their destruction….being led there by the pastor who flatters with the tongue.

    Jude 1:7-8 KJV
    (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.


    The pastors of the churches have been enticed by other sinners who lie in wait for blood. They are enticed into preaching for money’s sake. They lurk covertly for the Innocent One without cause as His life is taken away from those who should be inheriting it.

    Proverbs 1:10-19 KJV
    (10) My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
    (11) If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:


    They use their mouths for death as they swallow up many alive as the grave and whole as those who go down into the pit. The way is broad that leads to destruction from off this earth.

    (12) Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

    And all for one thing: to get all “precious substance”. We must NOT walk with them in their way.

    (13) We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
    (14) Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

    (15) My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:


    Their feet RUN to evil and MAKE HASTE to shed blood as they deceive many who should have had the life of Jesus made manifest in their mortal flesh. Their flattering tongues works ruin and truly hates those that are afflicted by it.

    (16) For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
    (17) Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.


    Yet, they lay in wait for their own blood and lurk covertly for their own lives as those who are greedy of gain have their life taken away from them.

    (18) And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
    (19) So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.


    They covet after money. They want to be a rich pastor and fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and hurtful lusts which drown men in DESTRUCTION and perdition. The abomination of desolation: coveting after other’s “gold, silver or apparel”….the love of money.

    1 Timothy 6:9-10 KJV
    (9) But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
    (10) For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.


    They defile our mortal flesh just by us sitting together with them as they preach things that they ought not be: teaching for doctrines the commandments of men for money’s sake. They defile our mortal bodies and those who destroy us are also destroying themselves in the process.

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


    Those who are lying in wait for other’s blood are lying in wait for their own.

    Numbers 35:33 KJV
    (33) So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.


    Wisdom speaks…she cries without and utters her voice in the streets. She cries out to everyone….leader and follower. The simple of heart are deceived by the “good words and fair speeches” of their “pastor” who really does not care for them but feigns it .

    Proverbs 1:20-33 KJV
    (20) Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
    (21) She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,


    The simple are led astray and love simplicity. Will they listen to the reproof of wisdom? Fools hate knowledge…His knowledge.

    (22) How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

    If they would turn at her reproof, then the Spirit shall be poured out unto them…they will enter in to understand the knowledge of our Lord. Let us not refuse to listen to the call of wisdom.

    (23) Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
    (24) Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;


    But those who will turn their ears from hearing wisdom and will not listen to reproof will have troubles. They will set her counsel aside and will not turn to listen to the reproof and will hate to hear it.

    (25) But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
    (26) I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
    (27) When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
    (28) Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:


    There will be a time that is too late for them because they hated His knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD. Fear of the LORD (fear God and keep His commandments) is the beginning of wisdom. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge….as those who do will be able to enter in to understand.

    (29) For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
    (30) They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

    (31) Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.


    But those who turn away their ears from the hearing of wisdom will not enter in and will be destroyed.

    (32) For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
    (33) But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil
    .

    When we hear the voice of the Lord teaching as He goes through our “cities and villages”, let us strive to enter in through the narrow gate. Let us remember to have brotherly love and be quick to hear and slow to speak and slow to wrath. Let us invite Him in and hear what He has to say….His heavenly knowledge. Let us not turn our ears from hearing Him.

    Luke 13:22-27 KJV
    (22) And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.
    (23) Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved?
    And he said unto them,
    (24) Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.


    Because a time comes that the Master of the house shall shut the door to those who will not remember to be inviting….to be hospitable. They will not hear and keep Him “in their streets” and not invite Him in while they behave badly towards what they hear Him saying. They will work iniquity at the hearing of His words as they will not believe and will be filled with wrath at His reproof.

    (25) When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
    (26) Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
    (27) But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.


    We must stay awake to His righteousness….to “watch”. We are to always remember to let brotherly love continue and entertain strangers and their words. The Lord comes to speak to our ears and we are to be found awake to His righteousness and not “asleep”.

    Matthew 24:42-44 KJV
    (42) Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
    (43) But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
    (44) Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

    Remember Esau who sold off his birthright...

    Hebrews 12:14-17 KJV
    (14) Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
    (15) Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
    (16) Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
    (17) For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
