    Peace to those who may read.

    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should NOT PERISH but have everlasting life. Perishing is being removed from this earth by death. The wages of sin is death....death to our mortal body so that our spirit may be saved.

    This everlasting life is for the here and now in THIS WORLD and not after we “die and go to heaven” as universally preached by those who are perishing because they do not receive the love of the Truth and be wholly saved: mortal body, soul and spirit.

    John 3:14-21 KJV
    (14) And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
    (15) That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
    (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.


    God sent NOT His Son into this world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved. The world and its lusts are already perishing away as we speak for NO FLESH of man is being saved. It is THIS WORLD that needs saved. IF we are perishing from this world, we have missed the point of God sending His Son into THS WORLD entirely.

    (17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    If we believe on Him, then we are not condemned with this world as this world is passing away as NO FLESH is being saved. If all we have is hope only in this world, then we are truly men most miserable. There is something tangible to be experienced in the here and now: the appearing eternal life of Jesus who already died for us so that we might LIVE NOW His life by doing His will.

    (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.
    (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.
    (20) For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
    (21) But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.


    In this life is where we are to display the glory of God to this world. It is here where we can show what it means to do His will to this dark and dying world where His will is not being done. His will is already being done in heaven.

    Matthew 6:9-13 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.
    (11) Give us this day our daily bread.
    (12) And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
    (13) And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.


    By doing His Word (His Saying: have love for one another), we make it flesh so that this world may see His glory (the appearing life of Jesus in our mortal flesh).

    John 1:14 KJV
    (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.

    All flesh is as grass and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers “under the sun” of God’s wrath that rises upon all of the ungodly. The glory of man falls away. But the Word (the Saying) of the Lord endures for ever.

    If we make the Word flesh by DOING it, then we also shall endure in the here and now.

    1 Peter 1:21-25 KJV
    (21) Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
    (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:
    (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 is passing away as we speak as those who are conformed to this world are perishing. NO FLESH 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.


    BUT, he that does the will of God abides in this earth “forever” as they will have the life of Jesus appear in their mortal flesh as Jesus WAS DEAD but is now ALIVE NOW forever. If Jesus already died for us and is alive now, then why are men still preaching their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave?

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

    It is here, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom we are to shine as lights in the world holding forth the Word of life….the Saying of life: have love for one another.

    Philippians 2:14-17 KJV
    (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.
    (17) Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.


    What shall we do to inherit eternal life?

    Luke 10:25-28 KJV
    (25) And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
    (26) He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

    DO this and we shall live.

    (27) And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
    (28) And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.


    It is in the here and now that we are to show forth the Word of life by manifesting the eternal life of Jesus in our mortal flesh to this darkened world that is perishing away as we speak as no flesh is being saved. DOING the Word of life gives us eternal life....making it flesh.

    1 John 1:1-4 KJV
    (1) That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
    (2) (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us

    (3) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
    (4) And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full
    .

    Be not conformed to this world as those who are living according to the world’s ways are perishing away in their mortal bodies to the grave.

    Romans 12:1-2 KJV
    (1) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

    Instead, we are to be transformed (transfigured) by the renewing of our minds so that we may PROVE to this world what it that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

    (2) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    We have this treasure in EARTHEN VESSELS so that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us.

    2 Corinthians 4:7-11 KJV
    (7) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

    Our earthen vessels shall not be destroyed….

    (8) We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
    (9) Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed
    ;

    ….if we keep the daily sacrifice of our Lord in our mortal body (always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus), so that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest (SHINE) in our mortal body….the mortal flesh. We participate in His death by dying to sin daily as we have love for one another as He loved us and gave His life for us.

    (10) Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
    (11) For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.


    Yet, this truth is not being preached.

    There are MANY who are not serving the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as they preach the doctrines and commandments of men for money’s sake in order to fill their belly. They are serving their own belly (the “god” of this world) and have no understanding of the Word of Truth as they handle the Word of God deceitfully for dishonest gain.

    2 Corinthians 4:1-5 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.


    The good news (gospel) is hid to them that are “lost”…that is, perishing from off this earth. The “god of this world” (the belly that they serve) blinds the minds of them which do not believe as they preach themselves in their own authority and not the Lord’s who sends His servants out to “freely give” as they have freely received.

    (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.

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


    “Perishing’ means our mortal bodies are being removed from this earth. Except we change our mind, we shall perish also.

    Luke 13:1-9 KJV
    (1) There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
    (2) And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?
    (3) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
    (4) Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?

    (5) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

    We must produce good fruit…the fruit of the Spirit.

    (6) He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
    (7) Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
    (8) And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
    (9) And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.


    If we do not abide in the Lord (by having love for each other) and bear good fruit (the fruit of the Spirit), then we are taken away.

    John 15:1-12 KJV
    (1) I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
    (2) Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
    (3) Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
    (4) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
    (5) I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.


    We must have love for one another…or we are cast forth as a branch….and we wither away. The flesh of men wither away.

    We are then gathered together with the other unbelievers (in their churches of envy and strife and hatred of one another) and are “burned”.

    The false prophet comes along and leads us astray and we perish because we fall “asleep” to His commandment to have love for each other…not abiding in Him as commanded.

    (6) If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
    (7) If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
    (8) Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
    (9) As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
    (10) If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
    (11) These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

    (12) This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

    The thief (those who are preaching themselves) comes not but for to steal, kill and to destroy as they prevent the life of Jesus from ever appearing in the mortal flesh of those they are deceiving and leading astray from the Way of righteousness that leads to life…His eternal life in this world.

    The Lord comes that we might have life and that we may have it more abundantly….in this world.

    John 10:8-10 KJV
    (8) All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
    (9) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
    (10) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.


    Those who come preaching themselves are according to the working of Satan. They come forth with all power and signs and lying wonders and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that are perishing from off this earth because they receive not the love of the Truth so that they might be saved.

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

    (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.


    They are sent a strong delusion that they should believe the lie that they might be condemned who believe not the Truth but have pleasure in unrighteousness.

    (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


    His kingdom is an everlasting one….not a dying one. If we are dying, then we are not entering into the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is one that is not destroyed. If we are being destroyed, we are not entering into the kingdom of God as His kingdom does not pass away nor is it destroyed.

    Daniel 7:13-14 KJV
    (13) I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
    (14) And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.


    Not everyone who is delivered from the pollutions of this world is being saved. If we become forgetful to ALWAYS DO His commandment, then the false prophets come forth to lead us astray and bring us into their church bondage where NO FLESH is being saved.

    2 Peter 2:17-22 KJV
    (17) These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
    (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
    (19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
    (20) For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.


    They lead us away from the Way of righteousness…the Way that leads to everlasting life in this earth. If we turn from the Holy Commandment (to have love for one another), then we are being led down the broad way to the destruction of our flesh by those who deceitfully preach the doctrines and commandments of men for money’s sake.

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

    Those who preach in covetousness for another man’s “gold, silver or apparel” shall not inherit the kingdom of God as they will perish away from this earth. His kingdom does not pass away nor is it destroyed. Covetousness = idolatry. We must flee from idolatry…stop preaching things we ought not for money’s sake and work with our own hands to support our own necessities.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-20 KJV
    (9) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
    (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    (11) And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
    (12) All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
    (13) Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
    (14) And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.


    We must flee from idolatry.

    We must also flee from “fornication”….the sitting together with those who are covetous in the churches of men. We must not be joined together with them of we are sinning against our own mortal bodies.

    (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 sit together with them, then we are being destroyed along with them for we are ONE FLESH with them when we keep company with those who are preaching themselves for money’s sake.

    (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.


    Flee fornication….the being attached to those who are preaching in their covetousness. We must not participate in their idolatry with them.

    (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.

    Short answer:

    Acts 16:30,31
    He then brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved— you and your household."

    Hi Strathos,

    Peace to you.

    Thanks for reading and considering.

    Indeed, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has abolished death (rendering it idle) and has brought life and immortality (unending, undecaying) to light through the gospel….which means good news. This is good news for us now ….in the here and now .

    2 Timothy 1:8-12 KJV
    (8) Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
    (9) Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
    (10) But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
    (11) Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.


    Of course, some will come forth and scoff and say “where is the promise of His coming”. They will persecute those who will preach such things just as they did to Paul. But we are not be ashamed for we know whom we believe and are persuaded . God is able to do anything for nothing is impossible for the God of all flesh.

    (12) For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

    We are to be the FIRST to believe in Him without seeing Him…yet…as we wait in hope and faith in the coming appearance of our Lord’s eternal, immortal life in our outer mortal flesh in this earth. When He appears, we appear with Him in glory..and this world shall see and believe and praise God in heaven. We are to be the praise of His glory who first trust in Christ without seeing Him yet but we hear the Word of Truth…the good news of our salvation…and believe.

    We are to be to the praise of His glory who first trusted in Christ (hearing Him without seeing His eternal life yet appear in our mortal flesh).

    Ephesians 1:9-19 KJV
    (9) Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
    (10) That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
    (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 trust in Him after we have heard the Word of Truth….the good news of our salvation. We hear and believe and we are sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise.

    (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
    ,

    The Holy Spirit of the promise of eternal life is our earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession ….our MORTAL BODY…..unto the praise of His glory. When He shall appear in our outer mortal flesh, the world shall then see and praise God in heaven.

    (14) Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
    (15) Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
    (16) Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
    (17) That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
    (18) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
    (19) And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,


    We see this in Jeremiah. “Baruch” means “praise”…as in praising God. The world shall praise God when they see His eternal life appear…..the manifestation of the sons of God to this world.

    Jeremiah 32:13-17 KJV
    (13) And I charged Baruch before them, saying,

    The evidence of the purchase of our mortal body is the earnest of the Holy Spirit of promise….that which is sealed. We are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. The evidence which is “open” is the manifestation of the Lord’s eternal life in our mortal flesh. They are put in an “earthen vessel”…our mortal body…so that we may continue MANY days (having eternal life in this earthen vessel).

    (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 live to see it.

    (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 nothing is too hard for our God.

    (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:

    But, this is a “hard saying” for those many who will not believe.

    John 6:56-60 KJV
    (56) He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
    (57) As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
    (58) This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
    (59) These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
    (60) Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?


    The flesh profits nothing…for if we live after the flesh, we shall die. But, if we through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body , we shall live as His Spirit shall make alive (quicken) our MORTAL bodies.

    Romans 8:10-14 KJV
    (10) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
    (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.


    He that sows to the flesh shall of the mortal flesh reap decay (corruption) but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting…which is for the here and now. We are not to become weary in well doing for in due season we shall reap His eternal life in the here and now.

    Galatians 6:7-9 KJV
    (7) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
    (8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
    (9) And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.


    We must reckon ourselves dead unto sin but ALIVE unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. MANY are not doing this as they preach their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave.

    Romans 6:9-13 KJV
    (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.
    (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.

    (13) Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God
    .

    Many will hear and not believe this and will cast us out of their gatherings. They will mock: “let the LORD be glorified”. That is, let the life of Jesus appear in your mortal flesh. When He shall appear, we shall appear with Him in glory. When He shall appear, we shall be filled with joy and they shall be ashamed for mocking as they did not believe.

    Isaiah 66:5 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.

    We are to become a new creation in this earth. The old things pass away and all things are become new.

    2 Corinthians 5:14-17 KJV
    (14) For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
    (15) And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
    (16) Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
    (17) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


    The old things of death, sorrow, crying, pain shall pass away for us in the here and now as we step into the life of the next age…an age where there is no death for us. The tabernacle of God is with MEN that He will dwell with them. This is in this earth now…for we are to become a new creation in this earth for the world to see as we do not die.

    Revelation 21:3-5 KJV
    (3) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
    (4) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
    (5) And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.


    We shall see the salvation of our Lord…and when we are fully satisfied with all things…we shall not see death as we shall be translated by God in due time. We shall never die just as Enoch.

    Hebrews 11:5-6 KJV
    (5) By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
    (6) But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    The kingdom of God is eternal as it does not pass away nor is it destroyed….and the life within the kingdom of God is also eternal.

    By entering into His kingdom, we become a “new creation”….one that is not subject to death as death is abolished through Jesus Christ our Savior. It is His life that appears and gives us eternal life to our mortal bodies. This is good news for us in the here and now.

    Let him who hears the Spirit teaching us remember to have brotherly love (doing the Word) towards those who speak what they hear the Spirit saying.

    Galatians 6:6-9 KJV
    (6) Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
    (7) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.


    He that will sow to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting….in the here and now.

    (8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    We must have faith and patience…for in due season we shall reap that everlasting life if we faint not.

    (9) And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

    The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God as they perish (their mortal bodies) from off this earth. Flesh and blood men who live after the flesh can not enter in. Corruption does not inherit the kingdom of God which is incorruptible.

    1 Corinthians 15:50-58 KJV
    (50) Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
    (51) Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,


    We hear the trumpet (the Spirit speaks to us and we are to hear and “awake” to His righteousness). We are to fulfill the law and the prophets making them “alive”. When we do not remember to fulfill the law and the prophets by doing unto others as we would have them do to us, then they are “dead” ….lying about the street so to speak. But if we hear and remember to let brotherly love continue at the hearing of His voice speaking through a stranger, then we shall cross over from death unto life…in this earth.

    (52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    We are to “awake” to His righteousness when we hear His voice speaking to us from heaven and put on Christ who is incorruptible and immortal in heaven. We are to cast away the works of darkness ….the envy, strife, wrath , hatred, etc….and put on Christ so that death is swallowed up in victory.

    (53) For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
    (54) So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
    (55) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

    (56) The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
    (57) But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    (58) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.


    Some will come forth and scoff at what they hear and will continue to walk after their own lusts.

    2 Peter 3:1-18 KJV
    (1) This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
    (2) That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
    (3) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,


    They will say “where is the promise of His coming”? Where is the eternal life of Jesus being made manifest in anyone on this earth as everyone dies since the fathers fell asleep….that is, died. All things (death) continue as they were from the beginning of creation.

    (4) And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
    (5) For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
    (6) Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:


    The heavens and the earth which are NOW are stored with fire NOW against the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. The wrath of God IS REVEALED from heaven upon all of those who hold down the Truth in unrighteousness. Our mortal bodies decay and die off from this earth under His wrath when we do not DO His Word. This old system...the old things...are to pass away for us when we enter into the kingdom of God ....becoming a new creation. All things shall become new as there will be no more death, sorrow, pain. This is good news for the here and now.

    (7) But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

    His patience is our salvation. He is not willing that any perish from off this earth under the wrath but come to repentance and be saved in this earth.


    (8) But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
    (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.

    to be continued...

    The scoffers shall come forth and will not believe in what they hear. This is a “hard saying” for many and many will turn away in their unbelief. They will “murmur” against what they hear.

    1 Corinthians 10:10-12 KJV
    (10) Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

    But to those who hear and believe the good news of our salvation, the ends of the ages have come as we cross over from this present evil age where the old things (death, sorrow, etc) exist into the age where everything becomes new (no death ).

    The old things of this age pass away and the new things of the next age are experienced as we become a “new creation” in this earth. We are to remember and take heed of the past examples of unbelief and what happened to them.

    (11) Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
    (12) Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.


    The Lord gives Himself for our sins so that He might deliver us (lift out of) of this present evil (hurtful, anguishing) AGE or “world” according to the will of God our Father.

    Galatians 1:3-5 KJV
    (3) Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
    (4) Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:


    If He delivers us out of this hurtful age (where death, sorrow, pain, tears exist), then we enter into His kingdom where we continue to exist for the age of ages….an eternal age…to whom be glory forever and ever. The old things such as death passes away for us in the here and now…not after we “die and go to heaven”. This is for the present life.

    (5) To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    It is His life that is to be manifested in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in this earth so that others may see and praise God. We shall shines as the stars in the darkness of this world leading others to His righteousness who will see His life appear in us.

    We are to hear and BELIEVE in the testimony. He shall come to be glorified in His saints and be admired in all of those that believe.

    2 Thessalonians 1:10-12 KJV
    (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.
    (11) Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
    (12) That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.


    We shall be persecuted by other “Christians” for our faith. Our souls shall be troubled as they will speak evil of us and mock. But we are not to cast away our confidence which has a GREAT REWARD: the appearing eternal life of Jesus in us of which NO MAN can then take away our joy. We are not to render evil for their evil...thereby glorifying God always.

    Hebrews 10:
    (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.


    We are to receive THE PROMISE of His eternal life in this earth. For yet a little while, He that IS COMING will arrive and not tarry.

    (37) For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

    The Just One…the life of Jesus…shall live by FAITH in Him. We live by faith in the appearing of the Just One in our mortal flesh. Let us not draw back because of the persecutions of unbelieving men that cannot do anything to us.

    (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 turn away in our unbelief and draw back unto destruction. Our souls shall be saved because when His life appears, no man can then take away our joy with his persecution of our faith 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.

    He begets us again unto a LIVING HOPE. Men have been preaching hope only with no tangible experience of His appearing life in this world . They preach a dying hope only as they want us to keep their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave.

    1 Peter 1:2-9 KJV
    (2) Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
    (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,


    But we are BORN AGAIN unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Jesus WAS DEAD and IS ALIVE NOW forever more. If He is alive now, we also shall live NOW.

    Jesus is incorruptible and undefiled and does not fade away. He is in heaven and His heavenly life is to appear in our earthen vessels so that we are made His many infallible proofs that He is TRULY ALIVE NOW in heaven. As He is in heaven, we shall also be in this earth: incorruptible, undefiled and not fading away in our flesh.

    (4) To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

    We are kept here by the power of God through FAITH unto His salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

    (5) Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

    We are to greatly rejoice as for a “little while”...for a season... other “Christians” shall persecute us for that faith.

    (6) Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

    They shall try our faith in Him with their “fire”…their mouths that will “flame” us for believing. We are not to return evil for their evil but be faithful unto the death…unto the dying of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who did not return evil for evil when they crucified Him.

    We shall be found unto praise and honor and glory by the APPEARING of Jesus Christ whose life shall bring His eternal life to our mortal bodies so that others may see. For yet a little while, and He that is coming will come, and will not tarry.

    (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:

    Though we do not see Him YET, we believe and we are to rejoice.

    (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:

    They will persecute us….but His life shall appear giving our troubled souls immense joy….the salvation of our souls.

    (9) Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

    Our sorrow shall turn into JOY as a man (the appearing eternal life of Jesus) is born into the world.

    John 16:19-22 KJV
    (19) Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?
    (20) Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
    (21) A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is
    delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.


    NO MAN can then take away our joy.

    (22) And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

    We are to be to the praise of His glory who first trust in Him (as we hear His voice and believe without seeing Him yet) as when He appears, we shall appear with His life in glory to this dark and dying world that is actively perishing away as NO FLESH is being saved. We hear the Word of Truth and the good news of our salvation and BELIEVE. The just shall live by faith as the life of the Just One shall appear if we have faith and hope and patience in His appearing.

    The world shall see Him in us as the sons of God shall be made manifest. It does not appear to the world yet who we are but when His life appears, they shall see. Every man that has this hope in His appearing life in our mortal flesh purifies himself even as He is pure. We shall be like Him: incorruptible, undefiled and not fading away in our mortal bodies as He does not fade away.

    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.
    (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.

    But the scoffers shall come forth and not believe in what they hear as they continue to walk after their own lusts. All things continue (death, sorrow, pain, tears) continue through the ages...since the beginning of the creation.

    But these ages are to come to an end for us who believe and are saved.

    2 Peter 3:
    (3) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
    (4) And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
    (5) For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
    (6) Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perishe
    d:

    In this age, the heavens and the earth with are NOW are stored NOW with fire against the day of judgement and destruction of ungodly men from this earth. This is a present thing for no flesh is being saved as His wrath IS REVEALED from heaven upon all of those who hold down the Truth in their unrighteousness.

    (7) But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
    (8) But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.


    But He is longsuffering towards us not willing that any should perish from this earth but that all should come to repentance so that we might have the life of Jesus appear in our mortal flesh giving us His eternal life in this earth....stepping into the coming age...the eternal age.

    (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.

    The day of the Lord comes upon all of the ungodly. It is the day of their death that will come upon them as a thief in the night. We shall be removed from this world as the current heavens and earth pass away for us as we perish from them.

    (10) But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

    But this current evil age is to pass away for us in the here and now.

    This current age which is set up for our destruction of our mortal flesh under the wrath of God shall “dissolve” for us…for those who shall behave with holiness and godliness. The old things of death shall dissolve as all things become new where there will not be destruction and death. We are to look forward for this system of destruction to be dissolved for us as we enter into His rest....in this earth.

    (11) Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

    The current age which is NOW has the heavens stored with fire for our destruction if we live according to the flesh ….unrighteousness.

    BUT, the heavens being on fire for our destruction shall be DISSOLVED for us in the here and now as we are taken out of that age of destruction.

    The “elements” are the doctrines and commandments of men that many are perishing by the using.

    (12) Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
    (13) Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
    (14) Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
    (15) And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
    (16) As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
    (17) Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
    (18) But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.


    If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation (NOW) as the former things are “dissolved” and we enter into the age where there is no more death. We do not “die” to get there as Jesus WAS DEAD (already died for us once) so that we might have life NOW. He begets us again by a LIVING HOPE not a dying one.

    Hebrews 9:24-28 KJV
    (24) For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
    (25) Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;
    (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.


    Christ died already for us so that we might have His life NOW. But those who do not believe are condemned….the judgment…as they perish from off this earth under the current system of destruction: the heavens being on fire and the earth.

    (27) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

    But to those who believe…who are looking for Him to appear the second time, He shall appear without sin unto salvation as He shall heal our mortal bodies of all of the effects of sin upon them.

    (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 salvation.

    Revelation 21:1-8 KJV
    (1) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
    (2) And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
    (3) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
    (4) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
    (5) And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
    (6) And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

    The Gospel of Jesus Christ

    1 Corinthians 15:
    1 Now I make known to you brethren """the gospel""" which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand
    (THE GOSPEL)

    2 """by which also you are saved""", if you hold fastthe word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
    (THE GOSPEL BY WHICH WE ARE SAVED)

    3 For I delivered to you as of """first importance""" what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
    ("""FIRST IMPORTANCE""")

    4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
    ("""FIRST IMPORTANCE""" IS HOW CHRIST DIED, WAS BURIED & RESURRECTED ON THE 3RD DAY)

    Romans 10:
    8 The word is near you, even in your mouth, & in your heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach

    9 If you will confess with thy mouth that Jesus is Lord, & and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved

    10 For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; & with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    (GOD CREDITS OUR BELIEF IN JESUS RESURRECTION WITH A DECLARATION OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. SALVATION COMES WHEN WE CONFESS JESUS AS LORD & BELIEVE HE ROSE FROM THE GRAVE)

    11 For the scripture says, Whoever believes on Jesus shall not be ashamed.
    (Whoever BELIEVES! Places their FAITH in Jesus. Not who ever works for it!)

    12 There is no difference between the Jew & the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him

    13 13 Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved
    (CONFESS JESUS DEATH, BURIAL & RESURRECTION & BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED JESUS FROM THE GRAVE. AND YOU WILL BE SAVED!)

    HERES WHAT HAPPENS AT THE MOMENT YOU ACCEPT CHRIST:
    Eph 1:3 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
    (WHATS THE "GOSPEL OF YOUR SALVATION"? AFTER YOU BELIEVED IN THE SIN ATONING DEATH, BURIAL & RESURRECTION OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. YOU WERE - "PAST TENSE"" SEALED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT)

    14 Which is the down payment of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession
    (YOUR SALVATION WAS SEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT & IS GUARANTEED BY GOD. AT THE MOMENT YOU PLACED YOUR FAITH/BELIEF/TRUST IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST) Maranatha
