    Peace to those who may read.


    Again, if we live after the flesh (in envy, strife, hatred of one another, wrath, coveting, etc) then we shall die as the wages of sin is death…death to the mortal body. We then perish from off this earth just as the rest of the world that does not profess to know God. The whole world is under His wrath as we speak as the world and its lusts are actively perishing as NO FLESH is being saved in this world.

    The outside world serves the carnal mind and cannot keep please God. It is not subject to the law of God (have love for one another) and neither can it be. The carnal mind minds the things of the flesh….tilling the “ground”….and is outside the “garden of Eden”.

    “Eden” means “delight” as we who know God by His Spirit within us delight to keep His commandments. To know God is to keep His commandments. We delight in them. We delight in Him by delighting to work and keep His commandments…His righteousness.

    Genesis 3:23-24 KJV
    (23) Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
    (24) So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life
    .

    He takes us from the world (who serves the ground….the carnal mind…and cannot please God) and breaths into us the breath of life….the Holy Spirit…so that we may delight in keeping His commandments.

    Genesis 2:7-8 KJV
    (7) And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

    God fixes or established (planted) a garden eastward in Eden.

    (8) And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.


    We are placed into the “garden of Eden” to work it and keep it….that is, to delight in working and keeping His commandments that He has established us to keep from the beginning.

    We know God (in the garden of Eden) when we keep His commandments…and we delight (meaning of “Eden”) in them. We are to eat of the fruits of the Spirit…of which there is no law against. The outside world does not delight in keeping His commandments nor does it want to.

    Genesis 2:15-16 KJV
    (15) And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
    (16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:


    We “delight” (the meaning of “Eden”) in the commandments of God which we love as His people. The outside world who serves the carnal mind does not delight in working and keeping His commandments...nor can it.

    Psalms 119:47-48 KJV
    (47) And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
    (48) My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.


    Happy is the man whose “delight” or pleasure (Eden) is in the Law of the LORD and in His Law (to have love for one another) does he meditate day and night. The happy man does not forget His law but always remembers it….meditating day and night upon it.

    Psalms 1:1-3 KJV
    (1) Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
    (2) But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
    (3) And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.


    It is God which works within us both to WILL AND TO DO HIS GOOD PLEASURE (Eden =delight, pleasure). We delight in doing His good pleasure for it is in within our will to do it as we have His Spirit.

    Philippians 2:12-16 KJV
    (12) Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
    (13) For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
    (14) Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
    (15) That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
    (16) Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.


    Having received His Spirit, we are now debtors not to work the works of the flesh any longer but to partake of the trees of the garden….the fruit of the Spirit: the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. We must be LED by the Spirit and not walk after the flesh any longer…or we die in our mortal flesh.

    Galatians 5:18-25 KJV
    (18) But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

    To be carnally-minded is death as the rest of the world that serves the ground…the works of the flesh…perishes or dies off from this earth. The world and its lusts are actively perishing from off this earth as NO MORTAL FLESH is being saved as all are dying under His wrath.

    (19) Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
    (20) Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
    (21) Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.


    But we are to eat of the trees of the garden of Eden….where we delight in keeping His commandments.

    (22) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    (23) Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.


    Those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh and also the affections and its lusts. If we live in the Spirit, LET US ALSO WALK IN THE SPIRIT. If we continue to walk otherwise, we shall die....our mortal bodies perish from off the earth.

    (24) And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
    (25) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

    Those in the outside world are outside the “garden of Eden” as they do not delight in the law of God. Those who are serving the carnal mind in the world in their envy and strife of each other(serving the “ground”…the flesh) are not subject to the law of God neither can it be for God has driven man out to serve the carnal mind. It is not in their will to DO His good pleasure for they do not have the Spirit of Christ. They cannot please God as they do not "delight" in His commandments (EDEN = delight in keeping His commandments).

    Romans 8:6-10 KJV
    (6) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
    (7) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

    (8) So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.


    But God forms us (His people) as He breaths the breath of life….the Spirit of God… into us who once did not know Him. He takes us from the serving of the carnal mind like the rest of the world so that we may serve Him in righteousness.

    (9) But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
    (10) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.


    But WE MUST WALK AFTER THE SPIRIT. We are debtors now not to walk after the flesh but after the Spirit.

    If through the Spirit we do deaden (kill) the deeds of the body, we shall live. We shall live in this earth with an everlasting life. That “life” is the life of Jesus that will give us His eternal life in this earth that He is already experiencing in Heaven. We are to be living, infallible proofs to this world that Jesus is indeed ALIVE NOW and forevermore as we shall have His life now.

    Romans 8:12-14 KJV
    (12) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh
    .

    But we, as His people, must “mortify”….that is, “kill”…the deeds of the body through the Spirit. It is not an automatic guarantee to live an everlasting life here as we MUST walk after the Spirit always and NOT after the flesh. If we continue to walk after the flesh after the receiving of His Spirit, we shall die….as the wages of sin is death. A “walk” is continuous.

    (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.

    He gives us the power to become the sons of God via the Spirit as we kill the deeds of the body with His Spirit. The whole creation is awaiting on the manifestation of the Sons of God…those who are TRULY led by the Spirit. They are not serving the carnal mind in their envy and strife of another but have put it to death.

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

    Only through the Spirit….the sword of the Spirit….the “flaming sword which turns in every way” ….can we walk the narrow way that leads to life….to have access to the tree of life. The flaming sword turns in every way….as in we must turn (change our mind and be converted) and live according to the Spirit so that we may have an everlasting life in this earth. We must keep His commandments so that we may have an everlasting life.

    Genesis 3:23-24 KJV
    (23) Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
    (24) So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life
    .

    There is still remains a rest that we ….as His people who have been given the Spirit…. must enter into as we must kill the deeds of the flesh with the sword of the Spirit. We must walk after the Spirit always and not after the flesh or we die…we perish from off this earth with the world under His wrath. We must cease from the works of the flesh and DO His works of righteousness. This is not about keeping a literal day of the week.

    Hebrews 4:9-11 KJV
    (9) There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

    We must cease from the works of the flesh and labor to enter into that rest lest any man fall (falling into the grave…perishing from off this earth) in their unbelief. Believing IS ACTIVE. We must DO His will and not be hearers only.

    (10) For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
    (11) Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.


    NOW…NOW….NOW … there is no condemnation to those which are in Christ Jesus who WALK NOT after the flesh but after the Spirit. We are still under His wrath and are perishing if we still walk after the flesh even though we have His Spirit.

    All things become new for those who kill sin in their lives and live after the Spirit as they enter into His rest where there is no death, no sorrow, pain, etc. This is a here-and-now thing.

    Romans 8:1-11 KJV
    (1) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    (2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
    (3) For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
    (4) That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.


    The world serves the carnal mind....minding the things of the flesh. They are outside the garden of Eden where they do not delight in keeping His commandments nor can they.

    (5) For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.


    To be carnally minded is death but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

    (6) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

    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 MAKE ALIVE your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you.

    Shall we continue to sin then? IF we are dead to sin, how can we live any longer therein ? The answer is that we can’t as the wages of sin is death. Even though we may have the Spirit of God within us and yet do not kill the deeds of the body, we shall die.

    Romans 6:1-23 KJV
    (1) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
    (2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

    (3) Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
    (4) Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
    (5) For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:


    Our old man is crucified with Him so that the body of sin MIGHT BE destroyed. We must work out our salvation with fear and trembling. We must deaden the deeds of the body so that we may live in this earth. He that is “dead” is freed from sin.

    (6) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
    (7) For he that is dead is freed from sin.


    NOW if we are dead with Christ (dead to sin through the killing of sin with the sword of the Spirit), then we are to believe we shall also live with Him….NOW in this world .

    (8) Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

    We know that Christ being raised from the dead does not die no more. He IS ALIVE NOW and so we are to have life now. Death has no more dominion over Him. Likewise, death has no more dominion over us in this world. We shall not die but have His everlasting life NOW in this earth and not after we “die and go to heaven” as preached by those who are perishing and have no knowledge of the good news for the here-and-now. They perish because they truly have not ceased from the works of the flesh as they serve the teachings and commandments of men more than the Creator. They set aside His commandment to have love for one another and judge each other with their teachings and commandments of men which is not doing the law of Christ.

    (9) Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
    (10) For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.


    We are to reckon ourselves to be dead unto sin but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. We are to reckon ourselves as alive. The churches of carnally-minded men are reckoning themselves as dead because they are all still perishing.

    (11) Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    (12) Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.


    If we are then risen with Christ NOW, we must always seek those things which are above: peace, joy, love, gentleness, kindness, patience, etc. We must eat of the fruit of the Spirit.

    Colossians 3:1-7 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.


    For we are “dead” ….dead to sin…and our life is currently hid with Christ in God.

    (3) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

    But that eternal life of Christ shall be manifested in our outer mortal flesh for this world to see . When He shall appear, we shall also appear with Him in glory.

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

    All of those who hope in the appearing life of Christ in our mortal flesh are to mortify (kill) our members which are upon the earth. We must live according to the will of God above and not according to the flesh. We must not sit together (the “fornication”) in the churches of carnally-minded men where NO MORTAL FLESH is being saved. The wrath of God comes upon the children of disobedience in the churches in which we once walked and lived in them We MUST come out from among them and be separate.

    (5) Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
    (6) For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience
    :
    (7) In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.


    The churches of the unbelievers will persecute us for leaving but we must not turn back and render evil for their evil but must participate in the suffering of Christ when they do. The sufferings of their persecutions are nothing compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

    Romans 8:18-25 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.

    The whole world shall know that we are the sons of God as the life of Jesus (Christ within us) manifests outwardly in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in this earth. This is truly good news for the here-and –now.

    (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,
    (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
    .

    Christ in us…the hope of glory that shall be revealed outwardly in the redemption of our mortal body.

    (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 revealing of His eternal life in our mortal body (the redemption of our mortal body). We hope for that which we seen not and have patience as we wait for His appearing life.

    The unbelievers in the churches of carnally-minded men shall persecute us for our faith. Our faith in this good news shall be tried with the “fire” of their persecutions.

    (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.


    But they shall suffer the penalty for their unrighteousness….as they will be shut out from participating in the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His might. They will have rejected their own salvation…at a cost….as they will perish from off this earth without His life.

    2 Thessalonians 1:9-10 KJV
    (9) Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

    We who believe without seeing Him yet shall rejoice because we believed in the testimony. The unbelievers in the churches of men shall be ashamed because they did not believe and will suffer their punishment….death from this earth.

    (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.

    Remember Esau who sold off his birthright….for you know afterward when he WOULD HAVE inherited the blessing, he was REJECTED. We are to inherit His eternal life. We are to hear His testimony and be found of Him behaving in peace and all holiness without which no man shall SEE the Lord…that is, they will NOT SEE the life being made manifest in their mortal flesh as they will have enjoyed behaving in their unrighteousness towards the hearing of His words of life and spirit through those whom He sends out.

    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
    .

    We are to remember to let brotherly love continue and entertain strangers and their words…for their words may be the words of the Lord.

    Isaiah 66:1-6 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?

    We are to hear what the Spirit is saying and rest from our own works of the flesh (responding in the envy, strife, wrath, etc of our former ignorance). We are to let His Spirit rest within us by not resisting the Spirit with our contentions and wrath of what we hear. We must be of a “poor and contrite spirit”….having few of words. We must be “poor in spirit”…poor in breath ….towards what we hear as we use FEW WORDS.

    (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.
    (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.


    Yet, in the churches of carnally-thinking and behaving men, they will not hear when He speaks but will instead choose to do evil before His eyes.

    (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.

    We must hear and tremble at His word and be found of Him with few words toward what we hear. Those church brothers who will HATE us and cast out our name’s as evil for His sake shall be ashamed as they will be shut out from His appearing glory.

    When He shall appear in our mortal flesh, we shall appear with Him in glory and they…the unbelievers in the churches (our brothers)…..will be ashamed and will not be able to participate as they will be rejected. They will be shut out from inheriting His eternal life in this earth.

    (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.


    He gives us the power to become the sons of God as we put to death sin… the deeds of the body….killing the works of the flesh and its affections and lusts…. with the sword of the Spirit. The world does not know us……yet.

    1 John 3:1-3 KJV
    (1) Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.


    We are now the sons of God (those who are truly led by the Spirit) and it does not appear YET to the world what we shall be. But the world shall see His appearing glory when His life appears in our outer mortal flesh. Every man that has this hope purifies himself even as He is pure.

    (2) Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
    (3) And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.


    We must strive to enter into the narrow way that leads to life. Beware of the false prophets that want to lead you astray from it with their preaching of so-called works of righteousness….the teachings and commandments of men that are not saving the mortal flesh of anyone that serves and worships them…setting aside the commandment of God (to have love for one another) in order to judge others with them. All are perishing with the using of the commandments of men that turn us from truth. they are perishing as they die in their mortal bodies and do not participate in the appearing of the life of Jesus in the 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.
    (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.

    Again, God established a “garden” eastward in Eden (which means “delight, pleasure”) and there He put the man whom He had formed after He breathed the Spirit into him. He put the man into the garden of Eden to “dress” (that is, “to work”) and keep it….that is, to delight in the working and keeping of His commandments.

    Genesis 2:15 KJV
    (15) And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

    The garden is the place where we know God….and knowing God involves keeping His commandments. The garden is the place where we know Him when we work and keep the established commandments of God that we are to have delight in (Eden = delight, pleasure) ….and they are not burdensome. The world does not keep His commandments and does not know God and cannot please Him.

    1 John 2:3-10 KJV
    (3) And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

    If we say that “I know Him” but do not keep His commandments…then we do lie and the truth is not in us.

    (4) He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
    (5) But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
    (6) He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.


    The garden is from the very beginning. The old commandment is the Word (the Saying: have love for one another) which we have heard from the beginning.

    (7) Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
    (8) Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.


    He that hates his brother is in darkness even until now. He is still abiding in death and is still perishing from off this earth under the wrath of God. The wrath of God is still upon him. Our God is a consuming fire and the sun of God’s wrath rises upon the children of disobedience and withers the mortal flesh of them as they perish to the grave. NO FLESH is being saved in their “churches” where they worship Him in vain as they set aside His commandment (to have love for one another) in order to keep the teachings and commandments of men that lead them from the Truth. They love and practice the lie as they think that they are doing God "service" when they judge others using their teachings and commandments. Outside are those who love and practice the lie (the same lie from the beginning).

    (9) He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
    (10) He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.


    But those who dwell in the “secret place of the most High” shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty where the sun of His wrath will not strike them. Those who enter into His rest will be delivered.

    Psalms 91:1-5 KJV
    (1) He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    (2) I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
    (3) Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

    (4) He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
    (5) Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;


    With “long life”….with eternal life…will He satisfy us and show us His salvation as we have found shelter in Him…entering into His rest. We show we know Him by doing His commandments. We know His name...His authority in our lives as we DO what is commanded of Him.

    Psalms 91:14-16 KJV
    (14) Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
    (15) He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
    (16) With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.


    Those who serve Him shall not have the “sun” of God’s wrath strike them nor any heat as they will have been delivered from the wrath of God and have entered into His rest by washing their robes, and making them white in the blood of the Lamb.

    Revelation 7:16 KJV
    (16) They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

    Happy are those that DO His commandments so that they may have the right to the tree of life….

    Revelation 22:14-15 KJV
    (14) Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city
    .

    …OUTSIDE (without) are those who are living after the flesh and not after the Spirit. Those who are on the outside have no understanding and are perishing away to the grave. They have not entered into His rest. They love and practice the lie. They say that they "know God" but do not keep His commandments as they set aside the commandment to have love for one another in order to worship and serve the teachings and commandments of men that lead them away from the Truth. They judge others with them...speaking evil of them... which is not keeping His commandment to have love for another.

    (15) For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

    There is only One Lawgiver....only One Judge...and we are not "gods" (that is, judges) for God when we use our denominational teachings and commandments of men (their carnal laws) to speak evil of others who do not "work and keep" them.

    Those who are doing such things are not a DOER of the Law (the law of Christ who commanded us to love each other). We are eating from the wrong tree then...the tree of knowledge of good and evil. We judge others as "evildoers" who do not keep our carnal laws...the commandments of men that lead us away from the Truth.

    A judge knows what or who is good and evil..and we are not doing His commandments when we judge others (speaking evil of them) based on what we think is "good and evil" according to our own standards. Wanting to be seen as "wise"...desiring of our vain glory, we speak evil of others who do not keep our handwriting of church ordinances.

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

    This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments and His commandments are not grievous. They are not burdensome and but are a “delight” for us to work and keep in the “garden of Eden” that He has placed us. It is in the “garden of Eden” do we KNOW GOD and delight in Him and He in us as we do His will with joy.

    1 John 5:1-3 KJV
    (1) Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
    (2) By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
    (3) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.


    The tree of life in the midst of the garden and is protected by the flaming sword of the Spirit that we must live by. We must kill the deeds of the body with the sword of the Spirit so that we may enter in to the narrow way that leads to life.

    There remains a rest for the people of God that we are to labor to enter into and requires us to put to death the works of the flesh (the works of the carnal mind) with the Spirit which will make alive our mortal bodies.

    Genesis 3:24 KJV
    (24) So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

    The tree of life is found in the midst of the garden and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

    Genesis 2:8-10 KJV
    (8) And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
    (9) And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.


    A “river” went out of Eden (delight) to water the garden. The “river” is the Spirit of God within us that gives us the will to DO His commandments. It “waters the garden”…giving us the will to DO His commandments. It is the living waters that flow out of our hearts and inclines our hearts to DO His will.

    (10) And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

    The “river” is the Spirit that gives us who believe the will to DO His commandments.

    John 7:38-39 KJV
    (38) He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
    (39) (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive:
    for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)


    It is God which works within us to both to will and TO DO of His good pleasure (Eden = delight, pleasure). The river flows out of Eden (delight) and waters the garden…giving us the will within us to DO His commandments which are a delight to work and keep.

    Philippians 2:12-16 KJV
    (12) Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
    (13) For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
    (14) Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
    (15) That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
    (16) Holding forth the word of life
    ; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

    He turns our hearts to whatever He wills….as the rivers of water (the Spirit that flows within us). He channels our hearts with the Spirit within us to DO His will…to DO His good pleasure.

    Proverbs 21:1 KJV
    (1) The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

    We enter into His rest. He gives us rest.

    1 Kings 8:56-61 KJV
    (56) Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.
    (57) The LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us:


    And He inclines our hearts unto Him to walk in all of HIS way and to KEEP His commandments….

    (58) That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers.
    (59) And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require:
    (60) That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else.
    (61) Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

    All flesh is as grass….and the grass withers “under the sun” of God’s wrath that comes upon all men in this earth. The wrath of God IS REVEALED from heaven upon men for their ungodliness….and all men have been given over to destruction so that God may show His mercy upon us.

    1 Peter 1:22-25 KJV
    (22) Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
    (23) Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
    (24) For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:


    All flesh is as grass….but the Word of the Lord endures forever….and those who DO His Word also endure with everlasting life in this world.

    (25) But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

    The world and the lust thereof passes away…and this is a continuous passing away as no flesh of any generation of man is being saved.

    1 John 2:15-17 KJV
    (15) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
    (16) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.


    The world and its lust passes away but He that DOES THE WILL of God abides here in this world.

    (17) And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

    The world passes away currently under His wrath….but nevertheless He does not leave Himself without witness to those who are perishing from off this earth as He does good and gives rain from heaven and fruitful season, filling their hearts with food and gladness. He sends the rain on the wicked and leaves them His witness of His goodness upon them….even as they perish away.

    Acts 14:16-17 KJV
    (16) Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.
    (17) Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness


    The rich man is allowed to REJOICE in his works “under the sun” of God’s wrath even though he is fading away in his mortal flesh as the “sun” of God’s wrath arises upon him with a burning heat and the grass is withered.

    The rich man is made low in his mortal flesh as he decays away to the grave….yet, God allows him to rejoice in his earthly activities as he is made low….as his mortal flesh withers away and he perishes from off this earth. NO mortal FLESH is allowed to glory in His presence even though they may be rich...they are still perishing away to the grave.

    James 1:9-11 KJV
    (9) Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:
    (10) But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.
    (
    11) For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.

    NO FLESH should glory in His presence as all flesh is made low as our mortal flesh withers away as the grass “under the sun” of God’s wrath. God has chosen the foolish things of the world to “confound”…that is, to shame down…the wise.

    No flesh is allowed to glory as they wither away under the rising sun of His wrath upon all men even though they may be wise or rich or mighty. They are all withering away in their mortal flesh to the grave and can not keep themselves alive in this earth as they go about their labors "under the sun" of His wrath.

    1 Corinthians 1:27-29 KJV
    (27) But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
    (28) And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
    (29) That no flesh should glory in his presence.


    God has given to the sons of man “sore travail” to be “exercised”…that is, to humiliate….them with . Their mortal flesh is being humiliated as they decay away to the grave.

    Yet, He allows men to rejoice in the works “under the sun” of His wrath…but all comes to nothing for them. (And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are that NO FLESH should glory in His presence).
    .
    Ecclesiastes 1:12-14 KJV
    (12) I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem.
    (13) And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith.


    The works of the sons of man done “under the sun” of His wrath are all for nothing…..behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. Their works cannot keep them from death as they perish away.

    (14) I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.

    But He allows men to enjoy their time here in this earth “under the sun” of His wrath as they wither away to the grave. There is nothing better for men who are laboring “under the sun” for the base things of the world (what to eat, what to drink, what to wear) for them to enjoy good in his labor which is a gift from the hand of God. God does not leave Himself without witness in this world as He allows men to enjoy their labors “under the sun” of His wrath as their mortal flesh decays away to the grave.

    Ecclesiastes 2:22-24 KJV
    (22) For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?
    (23) For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.
    (24) There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.


    But the man that DOES His Word shall abide in this earth as they will enter into His rest under His shade from the “sun” that lights upon all men.

    Revelation 7:15-17 KJV
    (15) Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
    (16) They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
    (17) For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

    True faith is active….it is DOING His will in this earth so that we may have an everlasting life (the life of Jesus made manifest in our mortal flesh) in this earth. He that believes not (that is, disobeys) shall not see life but the wrath of God still abides upon him (that person is still “under the sun” of God’s wrath and is perishing away from this earth just like the rest of the unbelieving world). We must DO His commandment to have love for one another.

    John 3:36 KJV
    (36) He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

    We must be DOERS of the Word (the Saying: to have love for one another) and not just hearers only. Hearers only “go to church” and set aside His commandment in order to keep the teachings and commandments of men that lead them away from the Truth. They do not obey the teaching of Christ (the doctrine to have love for one another) FROM THE HEART.

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


    We must REMEMBER to always do His Word…continuing therein….and not be a forgetful hearer. Those who truly do this shall be blessed in their deed with an everlasting life in this earth.

    (25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
    (26) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.


    We must obey FROM THE HEART that form of doctrine which was delivered unto us to keep: have love for one another as He loved us and gave Himself for us. If any man seems to be religious and yet does not bridle his tongue (as he uses it to speak evil of others who do not keep his particular teachings and commandments of men in his "church"), then that man's religion is empty. We must not sit with such who do not keep that doctrine.

    Romans 6:17-18 KJV
    (17) But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
    (18) Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

    We must not sit with those who do not obey the teaching from the heart. If we do sit together with them in their churches, then we become partakers of their evil deeds.

    2 John 1:8-11 KJV
    (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.


    He that DOES His Word (have love for one another) shall abide in this earth as they will enter into His rest under His shade from the “sun” that lights upon all men. They are sheltered (entered into His rest) in the Lord from the burning heat that withers away the mortal flesh of those who dwell “under the sun” of His wrath.

    Psalms 103:15-18 KJV
    (15) As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
    (16) For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.


    He has mercy upon those who fear Him….who REMEMBER His commandments to DO them. The mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting….and those who receive His mercy have everlasting life in this earth.

    (17) But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
    (18) To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.


    With a LONG LIFE….eternal life…shall He satisfy us and show us His salvation.

    Psalms 91:14-16 KJV
    (14) Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
    (15) He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
    (16) With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.


    A thousand shall fall at our side and ten thousand at our right hand but death shall not come near unto us. The wicked shall perish from this earth leaving the righteous.

    Psalms 91:5-10 KJV
    (5) Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
    (6) Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
    (7) A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.


    We shall see the reward of the wicked for they are removed from this earth as they perish.

    (8) Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

    Those who abide in this earth will have made the LORD their refuge…..their habitation. They will have entered into His rest in this earth.

    (9) Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

    Our “dwelling” is our mortal body…the purchased possession….the earthen vessel.

    (10) There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

    The Lord did NOT PRAY for us to be TAKEN OUT OF THIS WORLD but that we should be kept from the evil. The world and its lust are perishing away from off this earth as we speak as no flesh is being saved.

    John 17:15-17 KJV
    (15) I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

    We are in this world but not OF the world and are not to be taken out of this world. If we are being removed from this world it is because of sin as the wages of sin is death….death to the mortal body.

    (16) They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
    (17) Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.


    Wait on the LORD and KEEP His Way and He shall exalt you to inherit the “land”…that is, THE EARTH. The wicked are cut off from this earth….and we shall see it.

    Psalms 37:34-36 KJV
    (34) Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
    (35) I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.


    The wicked pass away from this earth and they will not be found by us who remain in this earth.

    (36) Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

    The righteous shall inherit the “land”…the earth…and dwell therein forever. They will have the eternal , heavenly life of Jesus in this earth.

    Psalms 37:29 KJV
    (29) The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

    The wicked shall NOT inhabit the earth as they perish from off of it….while the righteous shall NEVER BE REMOVED.

    Proverbs 10:30 KJV
    (30) The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.

    The upright shall dwell in the “land”…that is, the EARTH…and the perfect shall REMAIN IN IT….

    Proverbs 2:21-22 KJV
    (21) For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

    …but the wicked shall be CUT OFF FROM THE EARTH and the transgressors shall be rooted out of the earth.

    (22) But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

    God loved the world….this world…that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever shall believe in Him SHOULD NOT PERISH from this world but have an everlasting life in this earth.

    John 3:16-18 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.


    The world is condemned already as all are “under the sun” of God’s wrath. Our God is a consuming fire.

    (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.

    He has turned man over to destruction so that He may mercy upon those who return to Him.

    Psalms 90:3-7 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.


    All mortal flesh is as the grass that the “sun” of God’s wrath withers away as the sun rises upon all men with the burning heat….in the noontime heat. We are soon “cut down” and wither away from this earth under His wrath if we do not labor to enter into His rest in this earth.

    (5) Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
    (6) In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.


    Our God is a consuming fire.

    (7) For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.

    The MANY false prophets are leading MANY away from the Way of righteousness (do unto others as you would have them do to you) that leads to His everlasting life in this earth and down the broad way that leads to the destruction of their mortal flesh. NO mortal FLESH is being saved in any “church” gathering of men where many are being prevented from entering into His rest.

    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.
    (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.


    They pose as ministers of righteousness and are preaching things that they ought not (the teachings and commandments of men) for money’s sake. They want you to come into their church and worship and serve their handwriting of church ordinances…thereby, setting aside the commandment of God to have love for one another…in order for you to pay them to get their earthly needs met.

    (15) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    They glory that they are truly sent (true “apostles” …meaning “sent”…of Christ).

    2 Corinthians 11:12-15 KJV
    (12) But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.

    But they are falsely sent (“apostles” = sent) and yet transform themselves into the apostles of Christ as they falsely profess to be sent by Him.

    (13) For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
    (14) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.


    They are transformed as the ministers of righteousness…but their end is according to their works. Their end is the destruction of their mortal flesh as they seduce others to join along with them in going down the broad way to their destruction.

    (15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

    They come forth and falsely prophesy “peace, peace” when there is none in their midst. They come to take away the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice out of our lives so that His eternal life is never made manifest in our mortal flesh in this earth. When they do this to us, we perish from off this earth with them…with the “son of perdition”.

    If we keep the “daily” sacrifice in our mortal bodies (ALWAYS keep the dying of our Lord Jesus), then His eternal life shall be made manifest also in 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.


    But they come forth to deceive us and overthrow our faith in this. We are to EARNESTLY contend for the faith that was once delivered unto the saints.

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


    The “son of perdition” has crept in unawares. If we sit together with them, we perish…we are destroyed… along with them in the condemnation.

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

    Their function is to destroy those who really do not believe…..and believing is DOING His Word to have love for one another. If we do not remember to always keep His “daily” sacrifice in our lives, then they come forth to deceive us in the power of darkness (our own forgetfulness). Having just escaped the pollutions of this world, they come forth and speak good words and fair speeches to those who are “feeble” in doing well.

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

    They have NO UNDERSTANDING.

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

    We must not sit together with them. This is the true “fornication” that MANY are involved in: the sitting together with the false prophets in their churches where they set aside the commandment of God to have love for one another in order to serve and worship their handwriting of church teachings and commandments.

    MANY have “given themselves” over to sitting in the churches of men (the “fornication” that we are to flee from) where there is no peace. they go and sit with the false prophets who are leading them astray and they pay them for it.

    Instead of peace, we find the judgment/wrath of God upon the children of disobedience and they are suffering the vengeance of eternal fire as we speak for NO mortal FLESH is being saved in them.

    (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.


    They teach things that they ought not for money’s sake. Their teachings are the commandments of men that are turning many from the Way of Truth so that His life is never made manifest in the mortal flesh of those that they are leading astray.

    Titus 1:10-14 KJV
    (10) For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
    (11) Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
    (12) One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
    (13) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
    (14) Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.


    The completion of the commandment is love OUT OF A PURE HEART and of a good conscience and of faith UNFEIGNED.

    1 Timothy 1:5-7 KJV
    (5) Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

    LOVE is the fulfilling of the Law. But MANY desire to be teachers of the law (the commandments of men that they have wrested out of the Scriptures to their own destruction). They do not understand what they preach and of what they are affirming of.

    (6) From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
    (7) Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm
    .

    Let NO MAN judge you according to the things of the Law that he has wrested out of the Scriptures for you to keep. Let no man beguile you of your reward: the appearing life of Jesus in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in this earth.

    Colossians 2:16-23 KJV
    (16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    (17) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.


    The supposed “teachers of the law” pose as ministers of righteousness…..yet they have not “seen” anything but are vainly puffed up in their fleshly mind and are not holding the Head. They preach without the Lord’s understanding and want you to serve and worship their handwriting of church ordinances thereby setting aside the Law of Christ to have love for one another.

    (18) Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
    (19) And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
    (20) Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,


    We PERISH when we serve and worship the commandments and teachings of men instead of worshiping our Creator who commanded us to have love for one another.

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


    Yet, many see themselves as “wise” for doing so…for serving the ordinances of men in their churches. It is a show of wisdom in will worship and false humility and does nothing to keep your mortal flesh alive in this earth.

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

    In vain do they worship Him as they teach for doctrines the commandments of men that lead them away from the Way of truth.

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


    They set aside the commandment of God (to have love for one another) in order to keep the transmissions of men (their handwriting of church ordinances).

    Mark 7:7-9 KJV
    (7) Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
    (8) For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
    (9) And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.


    They exchange the truth of God for THE lie and worship and serve the ordinance (creature) more than the Creator.

    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.

    MANY “go to church” and think it wise for themselves to go and keep the doctrines and commandments of men that are not saving the flesh of any man. There is a way that seems right but in the end thereof are the ways of death.

    Proverbs 16:25 KJV
    (25) There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

    The end of those things is death for many “go to church” and set aside the commandment of God to have love for one another. They “go to church” where NO mortal flesh is being saved by the others who are doing such things.

    We must obey the doctrine (to have love for one another) from the heart and not just be hearers of the doctrine but also doers of the doctrine.

    Romans 6:21-23 KJV
    (21) What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
    (22) But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
    (23) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    We must FLEE from the “fornication”…the sitting together with those who are perishing in their churches. We are sinning against our own mortal body if we sit together with them.

    1 Corinthians 6:15-20 KJV
    (15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

    If we are joined together with them in their churches, we are ONE FLESH with them. We are being destroyed with the son of perdition who is preaching for money……alluring us with vain words in order to get his earthly needs met.

    (16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
    (17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

    We must come out from among them or we are sinning against our own mortal body which is not our own but God’s. The mortal body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in us and we must glorify God in our mortal body by not being joined together with those who are going down the broad way to the destruction of their mortal flesh.

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

    Yet, many see themselves as “wise” and “go to church” where they are actively exchanging the glory of God for the image made like corruptible man …..which is MONEY. The outside world speaks evil of us and blasphemes His Holy Name because of these things instead of glorifying Him. We must not “go to church” where the “parishioners” are actively exchanging His glory for money. The “money changers” are busy exchanging His glory that is due Him for money.

    Romans 1:22-25 KJV
    (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
    (23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    They are dishonoring their own mortal bodies between themselves as many see themselves as “wise” and “go to church” where they are exchanging the glory due Him for money’s sake….the image….

    (24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    ….and are changing the truth of God into THE lie and are worshipping and serving the ordinance (“creature”) more than the Creator. They are setting aside His commandment to have love for one another in order to keep and serve the doctrines and commandments of men. They worship them as they use them to judge others with and think that they are doing God “service” for doing so. They believe THE lie and have pleasure in their own unrighteousness.

    (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.

    The false prophet….the son of perdition…the man of sin…is there “in church” in accordance with the working of Satan in order to deceive those with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those that are perishing from off of this earth because they received not the LOVE of the Truth that they might be saved.

    2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 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:

    The do not believe the truth for they are not DOING the truth but have pleasure in unrighteousness as they judge others who do not keep their teachings and commandments of men in their church where the man of sin is sitting.

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

    They do NOT DO His Word…His Saying: to have love for one another. They are given over to a reprobate mind…the mind of their pastor in church who wants you to live according to his lusts and being filled with all unrighteousness. His mind is destitute of the Truth and thinks that gain is godliness.

    Romans 1:28-32 KJV
    (28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
    (29) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
    (30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
    (31) Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    They “go to church” and take pleasure in those that are doing the same things.

    (32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    Their “prophets” have seen vain and foolish things for them….

    Lamentations 2:14-16 KJV
    (14) Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.

    ….and the outside world speaks evil of them where they are exchanging the glory that is due Him for the image…money.

    (15) All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth?
    (16) All thine enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they hiss and gnash the teeth: they say, We have swallowed her up: certainly this is the day that we looked for; we have found, we have seen it.
