~01/21/2020: "Muzzling the Ox, Part 3"

"Ox": True Five-Fold Ministry...



Proverbs 14: 3-5 (KJV)

3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: 
but much increase is by the strength of the ox.
A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.


Deuteronomy 25: 4 (KJV)

4 Thou shalt not muzzle 
the ox when he treadeth out the corn.


1 Corinthians 9: 7-16 (KJV)

7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?
Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law [*the Law is spiritual, if viewed with the Spiritual Mind] the same also?
For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?
10 
Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, 
is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things [*money... finances... are carnal things!]?
12 If others be partakers of this power over you [*in Corinth, they most definitely were!]
are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used[*"abused"] this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
13 
Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
14 
Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
15 
But I have used [*"abused"] none of these thingsneither have I written these things, that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that any man should make my glorying void.  [*PAUL'S SARCASM ~ IF PAUL WERE TO DIE, THEN WHO WOULD BE ABLE TO HEAR THE GOSPEL COMMITTED UNTO HIM?]
16 
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity [*SPIRIT-EMPOWERED COMPULSION] is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!  [*NOTE: THIS DOES NOT EXCUSE THE CORINTHIANS' TREATMENT OF PAUL... WHICH INCLUDED NEXT TO (ABSOLUTELY) NO FINANCIAL SUPPORT!!] 


1 Timothy 5: 17, 18 (KJV)

17 Let 
the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith [*DEUTERONOMY 25: 4, ABOVE], 
thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

~01/20/2020: "Muzzling the Ox, Part 2"

The True Gospel always cuts straight to the heart; versus, catering to our own preferences and convenience...  "Muzzling" = giving no financial support; whereas, the Harlot Church (Babylon) markets... merchandises... products we can purchase.  The christian will buy merchandise, will purchase product (just like the World); but (in general) they won't tithe or give offerings, because they don't value relationship with... much less, fellowship with... one another.
 


Hebrews 4: 12, 13 (KJV)

12 For the word of God [*the True Gospel] 
is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.


Revelation 2: 23b (KJV)

23 ...and 
all the churches [*NOT, "the World"] shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works [*the motivations behind what our hearts are "working" or "devising"].


Deuteronomy 25: 4 (KJV)

4 Thou shalt not muzzle 
the ox when he treadeth out the corn.


1 Corinthians 9: 7-16 (KJV)

7 Who goeth a warfare any time at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock?
Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law [*the Law is spiritual, if viewed with the Spiritual Mind] the same also?

~01/18/2020: "Held in Perpetual, Unbroken Communion..."

We are being held in perpetual, unbroken communion and fellowship with the Eternal Godhead, through the physically resurrected and glorified body of Jesus Christ.  This goes way beyond "doing daily devotions," "setting aside time for God"; and magnifying our own regularly scheduled rituals (and seasons) of prayer and fasting, as well as praise and worship.  All such things attempt to compartmentalize God, regarding the structure of our daily lives and routines.  But Eternal Life is much, much more than that!  Eternal Life is the inward and never-ending experience of the deep, deep, deep, intimate knowing of the Father; and Jesus Christ, Whom the Father has sent.  "Likewise reckon ye also [*or, 'simply consider'] yourselves to be dead indeed unto sinbut alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord...[Romans 6: 11 (KJV)]" and, "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord... [Romans 6: 23 (KJV)]"  Nowhere, in either of these two verses, is there any indication of effort or strain on our part to "hear from God"!  Any and all such inclinations stem from an anti-Christ "gospel" (*really, not the Gospel at all!) which creates the illusion of separation from God in our minds.  So, we have to "struggle spiritually" to commune with God, hear from God?  You know, most Christians (especially, "Christian ministers") do not simply reckon themselves... do not simply consider themselves... to be dead to sin, through the physical body of Jesus Christ?  The more focused we are, on our own attempts at "dying to sin" and/or "dying to 'Self'"; the more Self-indulgent, the more Self-obsessed we become!  Imagine how much time we have wasted, striving to "die to sin" (which death has already been accomplished in the physical body of Christ, on the Cross), striving to "die to 'Self'"; when we could have been spending all of that time, simply setting both our attention and affection on the One Who loves us, and enjoying our communion... our fellowship with Him!!



John 17: 1-4 (KJV)

1 These words 
spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heavenand said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over 
all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: 
I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

~01/17/2020: "No Longer Know in Part..."

Faith is supernatural vision, spiritual sight (and insight).  Ultimately, we are transformed not by what we hear, but by what (Who) we are made to see.  This is the difference between the Dead Letter, versus the Spirit; the difference between the Servant (Slave), versus the Son.  It is far greaterto behold the Light of the Knowledge of the Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ; than it is to "hear the voice of God".  The Older Prodigal heard the voice of his Father, while never comprehending (perceiving) the love of his Father...; until his own, Younger Prodigal Brother came home.  The Old Testament Prophets heard the voice of God; but none could steadfastly gaze into the Face of God, but in part... not without the Veil.  Today, the Harlot Church has made a dead religion out of "hearing from God"...  And the sheer irony of it all is that (somehow) "that particular voice of God" never seems to be saying anything to anyone other than what is comfortable and convenient for them?  But who is going to argue with, "God told me...," or "God spoke to me...?"  But where is the love of God, the heart of our Heavenly  Father... beating in our own chest... toward one another?  Yeah, we are just so busy... ever learning, and never able to come unto the knowledge of the Truth (of all this); ever searching for someone who will tell us what we want to hear, so that we can go right on attempting to control and manipulate our lives, and the lives of those around us.  Besides, we have to eat, drink, be merry, get fat, save for retirement and... die!  We don't have time for anything or anyone else.  Isn't that right?



Acts 26: 13-19 (KJV)

13 At midday, O king, 
I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
15 
And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for 
I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
18 
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto 
the heavenly vision:


2 Corinthians 3: 4-6, 12-18; 4: 1-7 (KJV)

4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; 
but our sufficiency is of God;
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
12 
Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
13 
And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
14 
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15 
But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, 
the vail shall be taken away.
17 
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
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.
But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them [*with the DEAD LETTER OF MOSES' LAW!] 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.
For God, who commanded 
the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.


Hebrews 1: 1-3; 2: 9 (KJV)

1 God, 
who at sundry times and in divers manners [*Literal "who in part... spoke"] spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds [*our Father is no longer "speaking in part," because THAT WHICH IS PERFECT IS ALREADY COME!]
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

~01/16/2020: "'Christ' or 'the Anointing'..." 

"Christ" or "the Anointing": the tangible, saving, healing, delivering, burden-removing, yoke-destroying power of God.  The simple key to flowing in the Anointing: faith, that is energized or actuated by the unconditional love of our Heavenly Father... deep from within our spirits... toward people.
 


Romans 5: 1-5 (KJV)

1 Therefore being justified by [*His] faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also 
we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; 
because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.


Ephesians 3: 14-21 (KJV)

14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, 
according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him 
be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.


Galatians 5: 6 (KJV)

6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing [*Greek ~ "to make tremendous power available, miraculous and dynamic in its working"], nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

~01/15/2020: "Reputation?, Part 3 (Conclusion)"

"Reputation": the Beast encourages the creation of an Outward Image; requires, even demands, that that Image be worshiped... in order for anyone to remain in its life, or continue being a part of its life.  But all that Image is... all that Reputation is... is a Facade; behind which, we are choosing to hide ourselves, to keep out people... and from allowing them a chance to get to know "the real us".  Most of us prefer that the Image, we have worked so hard to create and maintain, would actually speak unto people rather than we, ourselves; because we really don't like people, simply because we really don't like... much less, love... ourselves (with the Love of our Heavenly Father).  It is "the trumpeting" of the True Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ which brings down that Facade.  In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ... that Facade (Our Wall of Denial & Disdain) is coming down!!
 


Revelation 13: 11-18 (KJV)

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth 
in the sight of men,
14 
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.


Proverbs 21: 21-23 (KJV)

21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence [*ITS WALLS!] thereof.
23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.


2 Corinthians 10: 3-5 (KJV)

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;


Joshua 6: 15-22 (KJV)
15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times.
16 And it came to pass at the seventh timewhen the priests blew with the[*seven] trumpets [*Remember the Seventh Trumpet, in The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ!], Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city.
17 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the Lord: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.
18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.
19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord.
20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat [*INTO the ground], so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.
22 But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the country, Go into the harlot's house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her.


Revelation 10: 1-7 (KJV)

1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write [*EXPLAIN] them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel [*the seven trumpets], when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

~01/14/2020: "Reputation?, Part 2" 

How is this, for "reputation"?...



Mark 3: 20-22 (KJV)

20 And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread.
21 And when 
his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself [*Greek ~ "mentally unbalanced"].
22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.


Mark 3: 20-22 (NLT)

20 One time Jesus entered a house, and the crowds began to gather again. Soon he and his disciples couldn't even find time to eat.
21 When 
his family heard what was happening, they tried to take him away. "He's out of his mind," they said.
22 But the teachers of religious law who had arrived from Jerusalem said, "He's possessed by Satan,[a] the prince of demons. That's where he gets the power to cast out demons."


Mark 3: 20-22 (AMPC)

20 Then He went to a house [probably Peter's], but a throng came together again, so that Jesus and His disciples could not even take food.
21 And when 
those who belonged to Him (His kinsmen) heard it, they went out to take Him by force, for they kept saying, He is out of His mind (beside Himself, deranged)!
22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, He is possessed by Beelzebub, and, By [the help of] the prince of demons He is casting out demons.

~01/13/2020: "Reputation?"

True Sons: make themselves of no reputation...



Philippians 2: 1-11 (KJV)

1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

~01/12/2020: "New Covenant, Part 3"

"Blessed" in Abraham, not Moses; Harlot Church masturbates unto... fornicates with... Moses.
 


Galatians 3: 5-12 (KJV)

5 He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among youdoeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
6 Even as 
Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
7 Know ye therefore that 
they which are of faith [*NOT through natural birth or lineage], the same are the children of Abraham.
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, 
In thee [*NOT, "in Moses"!] shall all nations be blessed.
9 So then they which be of faith 
are blessed with faithful Abraham  [*NOT Moses].
10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
11 
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
12 
And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.


Jude 1: 7-9 (KJV)

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.
Yet Michael the archangel, 
when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.


Revelation 12: 7-10 (KJV)

And there was war in heaven: 
Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: 
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.


John 5: 45-47 (KJV)

45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: 
there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46 For 
had ye believed [*NOT, "OBEYED!"] Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.
47 But 
if ye believe not [*NOT, "OBEY NOT"] his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

~01/11/2020: "New Covenant, Part 2"

Abram fell asleep (symbolically died in, and together with, the sacrificial animals), and was effortlessly included in The Father-Son Covenant; likewise, we ALL fell asleep (vicariously, mystically died together) in the servant-body of Jesus Christ's own flesh (on the Cross of Calvary), and were effortlessly included in The Father-Son New Covenant...  No one is excluded. 




Genesis 15: 10-12, 17, 18a (KJV)

10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another [*IT WAS A BLOOD-BATH...]: but the birds divided he not.
11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
12 And when the sun was going down, 
a deep sleep fell upon Abram [*he "fell asleep in the blood"]; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, 
behold a smoking furnace [*the Father], and a burning lamp [*the Son] that passed between those pieces [*COVENANT WALK].
18 In the same day 
the Lord made a covenant with Abram [*while he was "sleeping in the blood"], saying, Unto thy seed [*Christ; but Abraham was... as we ALL were... effortlessly included] have I given this land...


Galatians 3: 16 (KJV)

16 Now 
to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.


Romans 6: 1-7 (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?
Know ye not [*a revelation is needed, necessary], that so many of us as were baptized [*NOT water baptism, but vicariously... mystically] into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism [*NOT water baptism, but vicariously... mystically] 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.
For if we [*ALL... as in, WE ALL WERE!have been planted together in the likeness of his death [*and, WE ALL WERE!], we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
Knowing this [*a revelation is needed, necessary]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.


Colossians 2: 9-13 (KJV)

9 For 
in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And 
ye are complete in him [*where is "the process"??], which is the head of all principality and power:
11 
In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 
Buried with him in baptism [*NOT water baptism, but vicariously... mystically], wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation ofGod, who hath raised him from the dead.
13 
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

New Covenant: between God, Himself...



Hebrews 6: 13, 14; 7: 22 (KJV)

13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,
14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I willmultiply thee.
22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.

Galatians 3: 20 (KJV)
20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one [*in the physical body of Jesus Christ, in the servant-body of His own flesh].


Genesis 15: 7-18 (KJV)

7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
8 And he said, Lord God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?
9 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.
10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.
11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.
16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace [*the Father], and a burning lamp [*the Son] that passed between those pieces.
18 In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

~01/03/2020: "Harlot's House (Church Building) on Every Street Corner..."

The fact that most Christians today are still subjecting themselves unto the fears, superstitions, paranoias and "divine intrigue" of the mysterious meanings connected with the numeric value of any given calendar year; is proof that we are still under the influence of the Law of Moses, and its spirit of bondage to fear.  And hey, why not?  We worship angels, don't we?  Don't we understand that we shall judge angels?  These childish things have absolutely nothing to do with Grace.  But where is faith, that is energized by the Father's love?  "Blah, blah, blah...  But John, what is God 'going to do this New Year'?  Tell us the 'deep mysteries'!  What 'great thing' is He planning for 2020?  What does He have in store for us, for me?"  How about bring His very own love to perfection in our hearts; first and foremost, toward one another... as brethren?  Too anti-climactic?  How about draw us away from worshiping the church building (the Harlot's house); and from financing all of the ridiculous programs and nonsense transpiring in those whore houses... for the purpose of putting butts in the seats for business connections, social connections and so the building fund can be paid off?  Still too anti-climactic?  How about bring us into the realization of the Tithe being... actually... for the financing of the Gospel Message; and that there is a major difference between sowing financially into the spirit of Aaron, versus the Spirit of Melchizedek?  And finally, for all of the "love b.s." we talk with our mouths, how about bring us into close relationship and fellowship with one another on a Grass Roots level; so that we can/will gather and fellowship with one another (apart from both the "church building," and the praise of men) around the things that actually pertain unto the Person and desires of our Lord Jesus Christ?



Proverbs 5: 1-14 (KJV)

1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!
14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.


Proverbs 7 (Whole Chapter)

1 My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.
2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:
5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
10 And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
11 (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
12 Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,
14 I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
19 For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
24 Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
25 Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
26 For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.


Revelation 18: 21-24 (KJV)

21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

~01/02/2020: "2020, It's Just Another Year; We Are No Longer in Bondage to Days, Months, Times & Years..."

Hi Everyone, I'm back and will soon be doing a new video update on my health, my heart, and all of the truly bizarre things that transpired toward the end of this past year.  So, please stay tuned!  The calendar year of 2020... it's just another year.  I know that there are probably multitudes in the prophetic camp who are always attempting to equate the numeric value of the calendar year unto some deep, hidden, prophetic meaning of what "God is going to do"; but it is all just a bunch of bondage to superstition, fear and paranoia.  We might as well just read our horoscopes on a daily basis, for God's sake!  Our Heavenly Father has always had "perfect" 20/20 vision; and we will too, provided we allow the revelation of the Gospel of the Cross of Jesus Christ to remove the veil from our hearts and minds, so that the eyes of our understanding will be able to see clearly!  Our Heavenly Father is not restricting Himself, or any of His Fullness to some pre-determined calendar year or time-frame... or to any particular set of days, months, times or years... as we are no longer subject unto such childish things.  Our Heavenly Father has only chosen to "limit" Himself to all of the fullness of God in Christ Jesus!  We are in Christ Jesus...  Therefore, all of the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Him (who is the Head), and in us (we are His Body), both bodily and... right now.  Ahh... "now," that blessed, eternal "now"!  We have become wasteful and so-called "experts" on "all that God is going to do" (in the near and far future); but where are the people who have become disconnected (even delivered) from the bondage to natural time and space, and who are comprehending and moving in the power of the Spirit... in the "eternal now"?



Acts 17: 22-28 (KJV)

22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, 
I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 
God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands [*in CHURCH BUILDINGS];
25 
Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, 
and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27 
That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 
For in him we [*ALL] live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we [*ALL] are also his offspring [*IN CHRIST JESUS].


Colossians 2: 9, 10, 13-17 (KJV)

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, 
hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances [*MOSES' LAW] that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
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.


Ephesians 1: 15-23 (KJV)

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 knowwhat is (1)the hope of his calling, and what (2)the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is 
(3)the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believeaccording to the working of his mighty power,
20 
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to 
the church,
23 
Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.


2 Corinthians 3: 12-18 (KJV)

12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
13 
And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
14 
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15 
But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, 
the vail shall be taken away.
17 
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

~12/09/2019: "Inward Life vs. Outward Show"

If we truly possess the revelation of Jesus Christ, then exactly how difficult is it for us to open our mouths and share that beautiful message with people?  The spirit of anti-Christ would rather attempt to hide behind a multitude of things that "God" is allegedly telling it... or, not telling it... to do.  And once again, we are the Older Prodigal Son... who not only despises his brother (and other people, in general); but also, who has never known, nor presently carries, the heart of his Father.  Religion is all about money, and the external appearance of things, and outward success, and the praise of men, and self-righteousness... and about finding "the kind of 'god'" who is both "comfortable and convenient for me" and who (simultaneously) won't piss off too many of our family and friends closest to us; because we want people to like us and, God forbid, we should say something (anything) that might not make too many people happy with us!   A "god" whom, if we can please enough, can and will guarantee for us the life and lifestyle that we want.  But when the true Lord Himself is our Shepherd, we "shall not want"... anything... if we know that we know we have Him, and He has us, and His Desire is toward us!!  He is our Everything!  If not, then all we are seeking is a bunch of outward (or external, superficial) "magic" formulas, patterns, outlines, equations, sequences, steps, sequences of steps, applications, processes, "healing" processes, works in progress, protocols, etc., etc. from "any and all" so-called famous preachers or "life coaches" who can promise us that they can take us into their "promised land"... where, ironically, we already are in Christ Jesus.  But all that these things do, is further alienate us from the life of God within us; from the Lamb's Book of Life... the Volume, or Fullness, of Jesus Christ's Resurrection Life... resident inside of us.  
 



Romans 7: 5 (KJV)

5 For 
when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.


Galatians 1: 10-12 (NRSV)

10 Am I now seeking human approval, or God's approval? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still pleasing people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
11 For I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that 
the gospel that was proclaimed by me is not of human origin;
12 
for I did not receive it from a human source, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.


Romans 2: 28, 29 (NRSV)

28 For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is true circumcision 
something external and physical.
29 Rather, 
a person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and real circumcision is a matter of the heart-it is spiritual and not literal. Such a person receives praise not from others but from God.


Romans 2: 28, 29 (KJV)

28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, 
which is outward in the flesh:
29 But 
he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.


Luke 6: 26 (KJV)

26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.



___________________________________

~12/07/2019

The carnal (or, natural) mind views the Holy Scriptures from an earthly perspective, fully persuaded of its having to apply all of those written performance requirements and obedience standards; ever-fearful of being displeasing unto the Pharaoh (*not Father) it perceives in heaven, and thus reducing the revelation of Christ to nothing more than "common sense-fear based-reasoning".  Such a spirit of mind, or attitude of heart, will always feel as if it is "going through the (outward) motions"; without having any genuine sense of a deep, personal communion... exchange... with the Spirit, or connection to the heart of the Father. 
 


Romans 7: 5 (KJV)

5 For 
when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.



2 Corinthians 3: 5-11 (KJV)

5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselvesbut our sufficiency [*Source of the Spirit] is of God;
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testamentnot of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
7 But if the ministration [*ministry] of death [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture], written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away [*in, and by, and through the Cross of Jesus Christ]:
How shall not the ministration of the spirit [*of the Scripture, Jesus Christ] be rather glorious?
9 For if the ministration of condemnation [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture] be glorymuch more doth the ministration of righteousness[*the Spirit of the Scripture, Jesus Christ] exceed in glory.
10 For even that which was made glorious [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture] had no glory in this respectby reason of the glory [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ] that excelleth.
11 For if that which is done away was glorious [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture]much more that which remaineth is glorious [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ].

~12/06/2019

The strength of sin is the Law (*Moses, or the Dead Letter of Scripture); but if we can show people how Jesus Christ Himself (*the Spirit of Scripture) single-handedly fulfilled all that Moses was truly requiring, then sin will lose its hold on... and begin to unravel in... people's lives... and eventually, so will DEATH itself!




1 Corinthians 15: 31, 34, 56, 57 (KJV)

31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily [*simply consider myself "dead" to the performance requirements and obedience standards of the Dead Letter of Scripture].
34 Awake to righteousness [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ... or, the Unconditional & All-Inclusive Love of our Heavenly Father, as revealed in and through THE CROSS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST], and sin not; for some have not the [*THIS] knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
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.



Romans 7: 12-14a (KJV)
 
12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good [*BUT, NOT "LIFE"!].
13 Was then that which is good [*BUT NOT "LIFE," the Law] made death unto me? God forbid. But sin [*selfishness, or self-absorption AND NARCISSISM], that it might appear sin [*selfishness, self-absorption AND NARCISSISM], working death in me by that which is good; that sin [*selfishness, self-absorption AND NARCISSISM] by the commandment might become [*or, "appear"] exceeding sinful.
14 For we know that the law is spiritual...



2 Corinthians 3: 5-11 (KJV)

5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselvesbut our sufficiency [*Source of the Spirit] is of God;
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testamentnot of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
7 But if the ministration [*ministry] of death [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture], written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away [*in, and by, and through the Cross of Jesus Christ]:
How shall not the ministration of the spirit [*of the Scripture, Jesus Christ] be rather glorious?
9 For if the ministration of condemnation [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture] be glorymuch more doth the ministration of righteousness[*the Spirit of the Scripture, Jesus Christ] exceed in glory.
10 For even that which was made glorious [*the Law, or the dead letter of scripture] had no glory in this respectby reason of the glory [*the Spirit of Scripture, Jesus Christ] that excelleth.

"When we were..."
 means, "we no longer are."  The True Gospel, when heard and comprehended, should produce within us no more conscience of sins...
 



Romans 7: 5 (KJV)

5 For 
when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.



Hebrews 10: 1-4, 11-18 (KJV)

1 For 
the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers 
once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats 
should take away sins.
11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 
But this man [*Jesus Christ], after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For 
by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
16 
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
17 
And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

~12/03/2019:  "The Simple Key to Romans 7"


The key to Romans 7...
 

Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)
1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the [*Moses'] law,) how that the [*Moses'] law hath dominion over a man [*Adam] as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman [*Humanity] which hath an husband [*Adam] is bound by the [*Moses'] law to her husband [*Adam] so long as he liveth; but if the husband [*Adam] be dead, she [*Humanity] is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband [*Adam].
3 So then if, while her husband [*Adam] liveth, she [*Humanity] be married to another man [*Resurrected Christ], she shall be called an adulteress [*and so will Christ Himself!... yet, this IS Babylon's confused and mixed-up view!]: but if her husband [*Adam] be dead[*and, HE IS!], she [*Humanity] is free from that law[*of Moses]; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man [*the Resurrected Christ].
4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the [*Moses'] law by the body of Christ [*Adam's death on the Cross, in Jesus]; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
But now we are delivered from the law...  [*Because not only did Jesus Himself singlehandedly fulfill the Law (in all of its types and shadows); but also, Jesus went even further in that He fully embraced and absorbed ALL of the Adamic Sin, and hence, ALL of the Adamic Race in Himself (He fully became Adam and the entire Adamic Generation, on the Cross), thereby putting Adam to death... us to death... even, the whole COSMOS to death... Sin to death... AND, DEATH ITSELF to death... in and of Himself.  YES, DEATH [*THE ILLUSION OF SEPARATION FROM GOD] DIED ON THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST!!  JESUS CHRIST'S DEATH ON THE CROSS OFFICIALLY CUT US OFF FROM ADAM, AND ADAM FROM US, NULLIFYING OUR FORMER UNION WITH ADAM AS WELL AS THE LAW THAT BOUND US UNTO ADAM!]

 

THEREFORE, we are no longer in the flesh, no longer in Adam.  We are now... and only... in Christ.; AS IS ALL OF HUMANITY!!  Most of Romans 7 is spoken from the perspective of Paul's former days, under the influence of Moses' Law, and when he was still trying to please God with his own obedience TO, and performance OF, THE DEAD LETTER OF SCRIPTURE... or, "doing good" and "abstaining from evil" [*Remember that Tree??].  In Romans 7, Paul is referring back to what his life used to be like, before the revelation of Jesus Christ; NOT to how his life NOW IS in Christ!  I have never, personally, met anyone who has gotten Romans 7 "right," yet!:-)

~12/02/2019: "Moses' Law Bound Us to Adam"


Law [*Moses] bound us to Adam; Jesus put Adam to death...




Romans 6: 6 (YLT)

6 this knowing, 
that our old man was crucified with [him], that the body of the sin may be made useless, for our no longer serving the sin;



Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the [*Moses'] law,) how that 
the [*Moses'] law hath dominion over a man [*Adam] as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman [*Humanity] which hath an husband [*Adam] 
is bound by the [*Moses'] law to her husband [*Adam] so long as he livethbut if the husband [*Adam] be dead, she [*Humanity] is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband [*Adam].
3 So then if, while her husband [*Adam] liveth, she [*Humanity] be married to another man [*Resurrected Christ], she shall be called an adulteress [*and so will Christ Himself!... yet, this IS Babylon's confused and mixed-up view!]: but 
if her husband [*Adam] be dead [*and, HE IS!], she [*Humanity] is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man [*the Resurrected Christ].
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the [*Moses'] law by the body of Christ [*Adam's death on the Cross, in Jesus]; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.



Colossians 2: 10, 11 (KJV)

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also 
ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the [*Adam's] body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:



Hebrews 11: 15, 16 (KJV)

15 And truly, 
if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
16 
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.



Revelation 18: 7, 8 (KJV)

How much 
she [*Babylon, the Harlot Church] hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow [*Babylon, the Harlot Church, refuses to acknowledge Adam's death, the death of her Former Husband (Old Man) on Christ's Cross!], and shall see no sorrow.
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Adam was our Old Man (First Husband); Christ put Adam to death, circumcised Adam from us... from being our "covering"... because he obstructed our view of seeing we have been in Christ, all along.  So, what seems to be the problem?  When will we let go of Adam, in our mind; by simply choosing instead to learn of, and put on the New Man (Christ)?




Roman 5: 12-14 (KJV)
12 Wherefore, as by one man [*Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned[*we were ALL "in Adam" when Adam sinned]:
13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law [*Romans 3: 20... "by the law is the knowledge of sin"].
14 
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.



Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the [*Moses'] law,) how that 
the [*Moses'] law hath dominion over a man [*Adam] as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman [*Humanity] which hath an husband [*Adam] 
is bound by the [*Moses'] law to her husband [*Adam] so long as he livethbut if the husband [*Adam] be dead, she [*Humanity] is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband [*Adam].
3 So then if, while her husband [*Adam] liveth, she [*Humanity] be married to another man [*Resurrected Christ], she shall be called an adulteress [*and so will Christ Himself!... yet, this IS Babylon's confused and mixed-up view!]: but 
if her husband [*Adam] be dead [*and, HE IS!], she [*Humanity] is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man [*the Resurrected Christ].
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the [*Moses'] law by the body of Christ [*Adam's death on the Cross, in Jesus]; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
5 For 
when we were in the flesh [*when Adam was our husband], the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
But now we are delivered from the law [*of Moses], that being dead [*Adam's body of sin] wherein we were held; that we should [*now] serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.



Colossians 2: 10, 11 (KJV)

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also 
ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the [*Adam's] body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:



Hebrews 11: 15, 16 (KJV)

15 And truly,

16 
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.



Revelation 18: 7, 8 (KJV)

How much 
she [*Babylon, the Harlot Church] hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

"People say they come into My House to worship and praise Me.  There are no structural places I call, "My House."  My House is within yourself; there you will find My Spirit who cries out to Me.  There is where My House is... within yourself, to go wherever you go.  I AM with you.  So your worship to Me is when you decide to stop what you are doing for yourself and come to Me with praise and worship.  Praise and worship are not only with your mouth from your lungs, but it comes from your heart, your inner-being.  I look not at your outer being, but I AM interested in your inner being.  Your mouth should speak what it hears from the inside... (*from) Me.  You know the mouth speaks death every time it opens up.  Be quick to hear and slow to speak for then you allow Me to move on your behalf with edifying words; Words of Peace, Joy, Wisdom, Understanding, Love... not just for others to hear, but for you to hear as well.  My words... to be heard over and over again on a daily basis.  Anytime, any place.  You need not the four walls of a building to praise and worship Me."

Adam: Humanity's first... abusive... husband.      




Roman 5: 12-14 (KJV)
12 Wherefore, as by one man [*Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned [*we were ALL "in Adam" when Adam sinned]:

Do we understand why we are dead to the Law of Moses, by the crucified and dead body of Christ on the Cross?  And if we are dead to the Law of Moses (which we most certainly are), by the crucified and dead body of Christ on the Cross; then how is it that we think Grace is empowering us to go back and keep the Law of Moses... when we are dead to it?  There is so much confusion today regarding the Law, the old man, the flesh, and the whole concept of "dying daily".  It is all, really, quite sad.       
 



Romans 7: 1-6 (KJV)

1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that 
the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman which hath an husband 
is bound by the law to her husband so long as he livethbut if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her [*former] husband.

~11/27/2019: from "The Satanic Cult of American Evangelical 'christianity'"

Main-line, denominational, main-stream, American, "evangelical christianity" is truly a Satanic Cult.  What other way is there to describe a dead religion which views our loving, Heavenly Father as a "great red dragon" or "Pharaoh" in heaven; and by default, separate from us here on earth?  American "christianity" is all about a Pharaoh-slave relationship; but not a Father-Son relationship, much less... fellowship.  Their famous preachers... to whom The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ refers as "the great men of the earth"... will even say, "Grace is not giving you permission to break the rules; Grace is empowering you to keep the rules," are deluded themselves and have made a killing by marketing and merchandising their own lies and deceptions through multitudes of books, CDs, DVDs and so-called "christian movies".



So, how can the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus... which has made us free from the [*Moses'] law of sin and death (because JESUS singlehandedly fulfilled it, thus terminating it and rendering its influence over us completely obsolete)... all of the sudden, now be empowering us (once again) to "keep all of the rules"??  What a ginormous, steaming-hot pile of shit!!  And, I guess Apostle Paul must have been stuttering when he said, 
"For in that he [*Christ, with all of us together in Him] died, he [and "we"] died [simultaneously] unto sin once: but in that he [*and "we"] liveth, he [*and "we"] liveth unto God.  Likewise reckon ye [*or simply, "consider"] also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord... yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.  For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. [Romans 6: 10, 11, 13b, 14 (KJV)]"



So, if we are "not under the Law of Moses," but "under Grace [a completely different and diametrically opposite kind of 'law']"; then would someone please be so kind as to inform this ignoramus (who is writing this current piece) just how in the hell... and why the hell... Grace would be empowering us to keep a law that we are no longer under, a law that Jesus Himself completely fulfilled, took out of the way and nailed to His Cross?  Why would Grace be empowering us to "go back" and attempt to "keep all of the rules" that applied to the Old Man who no longer exists; "all of the rules" which portrayed our loving, Heavenly Father as a "great red dragon" or "Pharaoh" in heaven... versus, the Lamb that He truly is??  The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ is "spot on" when giving the name of the Harlot Church in these days, calling her, "Babylon".  Main-line, denominational, main-stream, American, "evangelical christianity" is truly a Satanic Cult!  Her name, "Babylon," signifies both Confusion and Mixture.  She is the confusion and mixture of Moses + Jesus, Law + Grace, Old Testament + New Testament, the Law of Sin and Death + the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, Old Man + New Man, Flesh + Spirit... etc., etc., etc...  But, "God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. [1 Corinthians 14: 33 (KJV)]"       



Romans 10: 4-7 (KJV)

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)



Revelation 18: 20-24 (KJV)

20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.



Colossians 2: 9-14 (KJV)

9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

To the modern-day "evangelical christian," "prayer" is become an idol, a false god in which they trust; but we are not going to "find the Lord" in prayer, we are going to discover our Heavenly Father... exactly where He says He has always been... in us.
 


John 14: 19, 20 (KJV)

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: 
because I live, ye shall live also.
20 
At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.



2 Corinthians 6: 16-18 (KJV)

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 
for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.



2 Corinthians 13: 3-6, 14 (KJV)

Since ye seek a proof of 
Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.
4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, 
but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. 
Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.
14 
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

The husband is just as responsible for and accountable to submitting himself unto the Christ in his wife; as the wife is responsible for and accountable to submitting herself unto the Christ in her husband... even as all of the Individual Members of the Body of Christ are responsible for and accountable to submitting themselves unto the Christ in one another.  Yet, the fact of the matter is: we refuse to yield unto one another, much less merge with one another.  Most seem more interested in building and preserving their own kingdom... which bears their own name.



Ephesians 5: 21-28 (KJV)

21 
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, 
as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore 
as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to [*the Christ in...] their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love [*the Christ in...] your wives, 
even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

~11/20/2019: "Divorced?"

Divorced?  You are free to remarry, as there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus; only let it be after the Spirit's leading, after True Love's leading.  The Father loves us, and wants us to be happy...



1 Corinthians 7: 27, 28a (KJV)

27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned...


Romans 8: 1, 2 (KJV)

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.

~11/19/2019: "Work in Progress?: You ARE COMPLETE in Him!... Part 2"

"Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.  I give thanks to my God upon all the remembrance of you, always, in every supplication of mine for you all, with joy making the supplication,  for your contribution to the good news from the first day till now, having been confident of this very thing, that He who did begin in you a good work, will perform [it] till a day of Jesus Christ..."  ~Philippians 1: 2-6 (YLT)



Most of modern "church-ianity" misquotes the above passage; using it as a crutch to support the mistaken notion that "we are all a work in progress".  But Apostle Paul does not imply this, at all!  He emphasizes, "...that He who did begin in you a good work, will perform [it] till a day of Jesus Christ."  Have we ever attended a concert of some sort to hear an artist perform pieces of music that were unfinished?  Certainly not.  Why would we pay, and travel somewhere, to witness that mess; when those musical pieces remain "a work in progress" and unsuitable for a live performance?  In context, what Apostle Paul is actually discussing with the Philippian church is his appreciation of their continued financial support of the Gospel that was put in his charge; and in conjunction, how that Gospel has brought them under the influence (or rule) of the inner promptings of the Spirit of Grace who is thereby unleashed through their words and acts of faith, thus "performing" or "confirming" their word with signs and wonders following.  So, the Spirit of Grace brings us under His influence (or rule) and initiates (or begins, prompts) something (a good work), from within; we respond by speaking and acting on all that He is showing us (through faith-words and acts, NOT to be confused with WORKS), then He confirms (or performs) that word... with signs and wonders following, thereby unveiling the manifestation of Jesus Christ in our [a] present day, in and through us!  My, oh my, how we have slandered this and turned it into some sin-conscious, self-absorbed, self-indulgent, narcissistic stairway or ladder to heaven; whereby, we think that we can make ourselves like God or "ascend into His Image & Likeness"... through our effort, our obedience, our performance, our "prophetic processing"!  When all along, what's been needed is the simple understanding of the good work that He initiates or prompts within us, and then performs, by our following after His leading as we yield to: "...only faith activated and energized and expressed and working through love, [Galatians 5: 6 (AMPC)]" and again, "...so speak ye and so do, as [*moving, my own emphasis] about by a law of liberty to be judged [*seen by all, again my own emphasis]... [James 2: 12 (YLT)]"




_______________________________________________

~11/18/2019: "Work in Progress?: You ARE COMPLETE in Him!"


Now for a long season, both The Harlot Church and The World (and this unfortunately, through The Harlot Church's poor example) have bought into the lie that they remain "a work in progress".  But the New Testament reveals, "For in him [*Christ-in-us] dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.  And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power... [Colossians 2: 9, 10 (KJV)]"  "Complete in Him"...  Exactly, where is this "work in progress"?  We still don't know who we are; much less, all that we possess... and have access to... in Him: "For through him [*Christ-in us] we both [*natural Jew & Gentile, there is no difference] have access by one Spirit unto the Father... [Ephesians 2: 18 (KJV)]"  This is because we remain ignorant of... and in many cases, even continue to run from, and turn a deaf ear toward... the Message of the Cross; which is The Only Word that is of power to reveal these things.  We never seem to want to sit under the preaching of the Cross of Christ, long enough for it to take root; for us to become rooted and grounded, even built up, in Him.  Why is it that we continue to search for "preachers," "teachers" and "teachings" that will only tell us what we want to hear; what we have already decided in our own minds to be true?  "You are complete in Him..."  The only "process" that remains is the discovery process... and this, through prayer in the Spirit... of our Father's staggering, Already-Redemptive Reality that is in Christ Jesus!



Hebrews 7: 11-14, 19 (KJV)

11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that 
another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
12 
For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
14 For it is evident that 
our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
19 
For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.



Colossians 1: 25-29 (KJV)

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;
26 
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; 
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
28 
Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which 
worketh in me mightily.



Jude 1: 17-21 (KJV)

17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 
These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, 
praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 
Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
10 
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.



Proverbs 1: 7-19 (KJV)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
For they shall be 
an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
14 
Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
19 
So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.



1 Timothy 6: 5-11 (KJV)

5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that [*financial] gain is [*proof of] godliness [*God's blessing, approval]: from such withdraw thyself.
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will [*to] be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

This Sunday; the Sixth Trumpet: fire, jacinth (smoke), and brimstone...



Revelation 9: 16-19 (KJV)

16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.
19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.


1 Corinthians 13: 13 (NKJV)

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these islove.


Hebrews 12: 25-29 (KJV)

25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him [*Moses] that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him [*Jesus Christ] that speaketh from heaven:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Multi-level marketing strategies, schemings...

~11/14/2019: "End-Time Transfer of Wealth?"

"christians" serve World with money; end-time transfer, Sons tithe!



Proverbs 13: 22 (KJV)

22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: 
and the wealth of the sinner [*the selfish] is laid up for the just.


1 Timothy 6: 17, 18 (NLT)

17 Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.
18 
Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.


James 5: 1-6 (KJV)

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

Judas Iscariot wanted to be known as the man who gave Jesus "the push He needed" to prove Himself unto the whole world.  The name "Judas" is a derivative of "Judah": "he shall be praised"; and "Iscariot": "he will be bought".  Thus, Judas would sell himself to garner the praise of men.  How many of us will sell ourselves to receive the praise of men, their approval?  Even more, how many of us will "sell Jesus down the river" to receive the praise of men, their approval?  Do we attempt to "give Jesus that push He needs"... so that He will prove Himself; with the motivation that, people will admire us and seek us out... even worship us?  Even Jesus' own brothers and sisters (in the flesh, Mary's other sons and daughters) were ever-attempting to "push Him forward" for their own benefit: "Now the Jew's feast of tabernacles was at hand.  His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.  For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.  For neither did his brethren believe in him... [John 7: 2-5 (KJV)]"  But despite all of these things, where is the People who deeply, intimately know Jesus... the Very Truth of the Gospel, Himself... and who will, without any sense of fear, ulterior motive or hidden agenda, speak this Truth in love?  It is a very simple thing today, to be hated and branded by both The Harlot Church and The World (there, really, is no difference) as a heretic; all you have to do is love and speak forth the Truth of the Gospel with love unfeigned... no gimmicks, no games... and you will rank very high on their Hit List!
 


Ephesians 4: 11-16 (KJV)

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.



1 John 4: 16-18 (KJV)

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
18 
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Most of us forget that Judas Iscariot was a political zealot.  Not only so, but Judas, "...was a thief, and had the (*money) bag (*because Jesus did  receive offerings), and bare (*or carried) what was put therein. [John 12: 6 (KJV)]"  Politics and money... in over two-thousand years, not much has changed.  Many might find it "more than very interesting" that Judas Iscariot did not betray Jesus for, merely, thirty pieces of silver; because thirty pieces of silver weren't (really) worth that much, back then.  No, Judas Iscariot set his eyes upon something much more self-indulgent and sinister.  Judas wanted to "set the stage" for Jesus to be able to prove Himself unto the whole world, beginning with the Roman government that was occupying Jerusalem and Israel at the time; toward which said, "Roman government"... the Jews harbored intense hatred.


By doing this, Judas' ambition was to be recognized (eventually) as the one who had the "foresight" to facilitate all of this "change in power" (more like, "overthrow of power"); and therefore, be "crowned" with the "noble honor" and/or recognition of: "Jesus' 'right-hand man'"... who "made it all happen".  [*On a side-note: have we ever heard of the modern-day christian who believes they, or the group to which they are attached, are responsible for "ushering in" the Kingdom of God?  The kingdom of God is already here!!  Are we engaging with it??]  Also, imagine what "a thief who carried the money bag" could do with access to unlimited financial and material resources which would, undoubtedly, "come in" and be at his disposal?  The power, influence, control and authority it would feed into his raging ego... 
over others!



But Judas' plans go way south, once he realizes that the religious hierarchy (the church of the day) never intended to provide a stage for Jesus' validation; but rather, that their aim was simply to apprehend Him, so they could put him to death, because the Father whom He revealed was a direct threat... both to the false image of the God whom they ignorantly worshipped, as well as unto the idolatrous religious system they worked so hard to build around that false image.  This is why Judas throws back the thirty pieces of silver into the Temple, declaring, "I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood."

 


John 12: 4-8 (KJV)

4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,
5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
This he said, 
not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.


Matthew 27: 3-5 (KJV)

3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4 Saying, 
I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, 
and went and hanged himself.


Luke 8: 1-3 (NLT)

1 Soon afterward Jesus began a tour of the nearby towns and villages, preaching and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom of God. He took his twelve disciples with him,
2 along with some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases. Among them were Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons;
Joanna, the wife of Chuza, 
Herod's business manager; Susanna; and many others who were contributing from their own resources to support Jesus and his disciples.

Money isn't evil; but our love of it is!  In fact, it is the root of all evil!  Money is what we love (not the Father); and the god whom we prefer most to worship with "our money" is ourselves... the god of "Self".  (Even Atheists have a god: themselves!)  We love money, not only because of the sense of power and control it gives us over "our own lives"; but also, for the illusion of "the freedom" of permission it gives us in attempting to manipulate and control the lives of others.  We will attempt to run and hide from the Presence of God, and from fellowship with one another, as far as "our money" will allow.  And when we run out; then we will simply turn to our parents, extended families, (even) children, our banks, our credit cards, our government, etc., etc...  Capitalism is not the economy or political system of the Kingdom of God; but rather revolves around financial profit, and mainly through the exploitation of people, their needs and their wants.  Democracy is not the government system of the Kingdom of God, either; but rather, gives permission to capitalism to continue its murderous, self-serving practices.  (Financial blessing is the proof, the seal of the Father's approval, right?  Right??)  So, in the end, "The boys, with the most toys, win?"  It is such a gloriously staggering reality that... when, on our one and only, last breath... we lose everything for which we have worked so hard... used, abused, stepped and walked all over so many people to achieve and obtain; and through which, we have become so vainly accustomed to defining ourselves.  So then, when we all stand before the Throne... completely naked before the eyes of the One who already sees all, and knows all; exactly, what account will we give of ourselves, when once He notices how very little... if anything, at all... there is of Himself, in us?
 


1 Timothy 6: 3-10 (KJV)

3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, eventhe words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4 he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5 perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, 
supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will [*to] be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and intomany foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.



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



2 Corinthians 5: 9-11 (KJV)

9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
10 
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
11 
Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade menbut we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
