    Peace in Christ.

    The LORD (Yahweh….the I AM... who is the Living One) is the true “God” – Elohim (meaning JUDGE). He is the living God or Judge.

    Jeremiah 10:10-12 KJV
    (10) But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.


    The “gods”…the judges…the church handwritings of ordinances that men use to judge themselves and others with ….can’t do anything by themselves like our Living Judge.

    The LORD God (the I AM living JUDGE) made the heavens and the earth while the lifeless church handwritings of men did not. The statutes of men (which are not the Judge's commandments) are empty and lifeless and there is no benefit in the keeping of them. We perish with the keeping of man's commandments as written in the churches' handwritings of ordinances.

    (11) Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens
    (12) He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.


    Let no man judge you according to the “handwriting of ordinances” that his church scribes have penned down with their list of the carnal commandments of men.

    Colossians 2:14-18 KJV
    (14) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
    (15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.


    Their handwritings have become “another god”…another Elohim….another judge.

    They replace the Living Judge with another judge….a handwriting of ordinances filled with the commandments of fleshly-minded men that cannot do anything by themselves as they are lifeless documents. They cannot create. They cannot save any man.

    (16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    (17) Which are a shadow of things to come;
    but the body is of Christ.


    Carnally-minded men want you to bow down to their church handwriting of ordinances ….the carnal commandments of men that God did not command nor did He speak to them to write down. They want to bring you into their bondage into the keeping of man's commandments that cause us to perish from this earth.

    The “angels” = messengers…their list of church dogmas (which have been passed down/transmitted from the church scribes from one generation to another) that they want you to “voluntarily” and “solemnly” submit to.

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

    In emptiness, do they worship the true God as they teach for doctrines the commandments of men.

    Mark 7:7-9 KJV
    (7) Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.


    They teach the carnal commandments of men and by doing so reject the commandment of God to have love for one another in order to keep their own “tradition”….that is, their transmission (their particular church handwriting of ordinances that have been transmitted from one generation to another). Many fight and war with each other using their carnal commandments as a basis for and all the while thinking that they are worshipping and serving God by doing so.

    (8) For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
    (9) And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.


    They have changed the truth of THE (definite article) God IN THE Lie and worship (adore) and serve the “creature” (their fabrication of the church handwriting of the commandments of men which did not create the heavens and the earth) more than the Creator (the Living One who has made the heavens and the earth).

    The “creature” …the fabrication/ordinance/formation of the handwriting…did not create the heavens and the earth like our living Creator who is alive and active.

    Romans 1:25 KJV
    (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.


    They change the truth of THE true God in the lie….as the woman in the garden shows us. She changed the truth of the LORD God (the Living Judge) in the process of the lie that the serpent told .

    The truth of the LORD God (The I AM Judge …the living One who is our Judge) who commanded the man:

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


    And the changed the “truth” of God into "another god" in the process of the Lie as the woman added a carnal commandment (neither shall you touch it) :

    Genesis 3:1-3 KJV
    (1) Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
    (2) And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:


    “God” had said (another god) is the “creature” or the fabrication of the woman who added a carnal commandment to the LORD God’s .

    The “creature” has become “another god” by which the product of adding a carnal commandment (neither shall you touch it) can be used to judge another with.

    (3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

    The truth of the Living, creating God (the LORD God) was changed IN THE process of the Lie that was told by the serpent.

    Genesis 3:4-5 KJV
    (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
    (5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.


    “You shall not surely die” = literally “killing, you shall not die” . A “Peace and safety” message: while being a judge, jury and executioner of another using your altered truth of God (added carnal commandments of men: neither shall you touch it), you shall not die.

    The Lie: “For God does know…” You are doing God “service” for “killing” another with a judgmental tongue.

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


    The Lie: “then your eyes shall be opened” . You shall be seen as “wise”...vain glory.

    They are desirous of vain glory: wanting to be seen as wise, they open their mouths to speak evil of others who do not follow their carnal commandment.

    Professing themselves as “wise” , they became fools.

    They say they are “wise” while they change the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like decayed man.

    They make an “image” with their church handwritings which are similar in structure and like-sounding language of the outside world’s documents. But this document is not from THE God who is the Living Judge (the LORD God).

    The “church constitutions” all look and sound like the world’s self-governing constitutions with their “preambles” and structured Articles and numbering.

    They have “gone after” the nations in wanting their own self-governing documents inside their churches and rejecting the Kingdom (government) of God. They are made like corruptible man’s documents. These documents are found where they should not be found: alongside the worship of the true God.

    Romans 1:22-23 KJV
    (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
    (23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.


    The lying pen of the church scribes (who profess themselves as “wise”) have changed the truth of the true God in the lie. The Law of the Living One is not contained in the product of handwritings of church scribes. What wisdom is in them?

    Jeremiah 8:8-9 KJV
    (8) How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.
    (9) The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?


    The Lie: “and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil”.

    You shall be seen as JUDGES for God as you are the one who has the handwriting of carnal commandments (neither shall you touch it) of what is good and evil by which many judge themselves and others with.

    Yet, we are told there is only One Lawgiver….only One Judge. A handwriting of the commandments of men does not give us any authority to judge others supposedly in His name (authority). This does not give us a “pass” not to have love for another. We are not a judge for God in doing so.

    "gods" = judges

    James 4:11-12 KJV
    (11) Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge
    .

    There is only One Lawgiver who is able to save and to destroy.

    We are not “gods” ….judges…who have the knowledge of what is good and evil supposedly contained in our handwriting of church ordinances. The “laws” of the church handwritings are not His laws. We are not judge, jury and executioner of others who are “going to hell” because they do not follow a particular church carnal commandment of man (such as "neither shall you touch it").

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

    We are to be under the government of God …and not our self-governing documents such as church constitutions which are patterned after the worlds’ self-governing documents.

    Many worship “another jesus” who is not the true Christ (the "jesus" the instead-of Christ...the antichrist) as preached by false prophets who falsely prophesy “peace and safety” in their places of worship where they adore and serve their handwritings of ordinances (the “creature”) more than the Creator.

    Those who “dwell upon the earth”….bogged down in the earthly wisdom: envy, strife, hatred of one another, wrath, etc….shall worship “another jesus”.

    Their “another jesus” is a warring jesus (who can make war with him)….a wild beast…and not THE LAMB slain (indicating the keeping of the daily sacrifice of dying to the sin). According to "another jesus" the antichrist, we are exempt from the dying to the sin as his "deadly wound" is healed. The sword of the Spirit ceases to deaden the practicing of the sin through the deceit of the false prophet and his preaching of "another jesus".

    Those who worship another jesus do so through the keeping of the handwriting of dogmas...the "image".... that they judge and fight/war with each other over.

    They “kill” others with the “sword” so to speak…the judgmental tongue as they are in captivity to the practicing of the sin via the keeping of the handwriting of church ordinances. People one another fight with weapons...such as "swords". They fight with the sword of their tongues.

    Yet, we are told that the Lamb slain is “from” (that is, AWAY FROM) the “foundation of the world” …the handwritings of men that are the basic “principles” that man has written to self-govern himself.

    We must be apart from those who are living in bondage to the handwritings of ordinances where they are fighting one another over. We must be away from the "foundation of the world" so that we may keep His daily sacrifice. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

    Revelation 13:8-10 KJV
    (8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
    (9) If any man have an ear, let him hear.
    (10) He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints

    Some people just can't help themselves. They have to judge everything and everyone. It's all too bizarre and they are all too wise to understand it all. Some can dish out the criticism but can't take it. Some can brave the truth and come out of it all the better. But at the end of the day only God can truly judge as He is the only one with full knowledge, understanding and wisdom. All of us our in His hands. Good thing that He loves us so!
