What is God’s personal name?
Psalms 83:18 KJV – “That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, (The Original Hebrew name “Yahweh” transliterated into English) art the most high over all the earth.”
1 John 4:16 – “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. GOD IS LOVE. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.”
Who is it who “DIRECTLY” benefit from the promises of the Bible? – Those who it is primarily recorded for.
2 Timothy 3:16a – “ALL SCRIPTURE is God – breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,……”
Romans 9:8 clearly states – “In other words, it is not the natural children ( of the same or natural birth given blood line as Christ ) who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise ( ALL BAPTIZED BELIEVERS ) who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring,…”
Thus telling us that WE, ALL BAPTIZED BELIEVERS OF EARTH (HUMANITY), are now able to be considered children of Abraham and heirs of “The Promise”, recipients of the blessings of “Peace, Prosperity, and Everlasting Life.”
WHAT IS THE TRUTH CONCERNING THE STATE OF CHRISTIANITY AND “TRUE” CHRISTIANS IN THE WORLD?
John 15:18 – 21 – “If the WORLD HATES YOU , keep in mind that IT HATED ME FIRST. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as it’s own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: “No servant is greater than his master.” If they persecuted me, THEY WILL PERSECUTE YOU ALSO. If they obeyed my teaching they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.”
Who actually runs the World!
1 John 5:19 – “We know that we are children of God, and that the WHOLE WORLD is under the control of the evil one.”
Revelation 12:9 – “The great dragon was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who LEADS THE WHOLE WORLD ASTRAY. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”
Revelation 12:12 – “Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But WOE TO THE EARTH AND THE SEA, because the devil has gone down to you! HE IS FILLED WITH FURY, because he knows that HIS TIME IS SHORT.”
In addition to Satan the Devil and his demons, who else is guilty of misleading the entire inhabited Earth?”
Revelation 17: 1 – 6 – “One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, Come I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. With her the Kings of the Earth ( World Merchants and Financial Institutions) committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth (People) were INTOXICATED with the wine of her adulteries.” Then the angel carried me away in the spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. ( Satan’s controlled World Goverments ) The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She had a golden cup in her hand, filled with ABOMINABLE THINGS AND THE FILTH OF HER ADULTERIES. The TITLE was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. ( This identifies the religious bodies of The World Empire of False Religion – including some of those identifying as CHRISTIAN ) I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to JESUS. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished.”
Who are included as Rulers and Subjects of God’s Kingdom?
1 Corinthians 15:27 – “For he “has put everything under his feet.” Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ.”
Philippians 2: 5 – 8 – “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider EQUALITY with God something to be GRASP, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness, and being found in APPEARANCE as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross (tree).
Philippians 2: 10,11 – “….that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Isaiah 9:6,7 – “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.”
Matthew 4:8-10 – “Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdom’s (Governments) of the world and their splendor, “All this I will give you” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”
Jesus never once TOLD SATAN THAT HE DIDN’T HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO GRANT SUCH A REQUEST, ONLY THAT THE SCRIPTURES COMMANDED A DIFFERENT ACTION (RESPONSE FROM THE ONE BEING TEMPTED).
Revelation 14:1-3 “Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpist playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who have been redeemed from the earth.”
Luke 12:32 – “Do not be afraid, LITTLE FLOCK, for your FATHER (JEHOVAH GOD) has been pleased to give you THE KINGDOM.”
What’s required to be a citizen of God’s Kingdom and LIVE FOREVER?
John 17:3 NWT 1984 – “This means EVERLASTING LIFE, THEIR TAKING IN KNOWLEDGE (APPLICATION OF SUCH KNOWLEDGE – LIVING OF SUCH KNOWLEDGE) of you the ONLY TRUE GOD, and the one whom you sent forth, JESUS CHRIST.”
The true identity of human beings explained!
Job 32:8 – “But it is the spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty, that gives him understanding.”
Romans 8:16 – “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children”
John 6:63 – “The spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are LIFE.
“The first hybrid human clone was created in November 1998 (Over 20 years ago that they came forward with the public announcement – H. O. E.) by Advanced Cell Technology. It was created using SCNT; a nucleus was taken from a man’s leg cell and inserted into a cow’s egg from which the nucleus had been removed, and the hybrid cell was cultured and developed into an embryo.”
HUMAN FLESH!! A living organism. Void of spirit like children produce through contact from a man and a woman. Consider the inner workings of vegetative life yet its not ALIVE but living! Maybe you’ve heard someone used the characterization, “my plant died”, when actually it was never really ALIVE but was obvious from observations that it previously had activity or life before.
What the Bible had already stated, Science and Technology has NOW CONFIRMED! But Satan the Devil still has the majority of mankind NOT WANTING OR UNWILLING TO ACKNOWLEDGE OR ACCEPT THE TRUTH! Even a vast majority of those who identify as CHRISTIANS! Evident in the Racial Separation of Established Christian Religions!
2 Corinthians 4: 16-18 – “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
1 Corinthians 3:16,17 – “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.”
1 Thessalonians 5:23, “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Gods plan and purpose for mankinds future.
Daniel 2:44 – “In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.”
Revelation 21:4 – “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
Isaiah 35:5,6 – “Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.”
Isaiah 65:21-23 – “They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the works of their hands. They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them.”
Isaiah 25:6 – “On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine– the best of meats and the finest of wines.”
2 Peter 3:13 – “But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.”
Psalms 37:28,29 – For the Lord loves the JUST ( From which he shows HIS REAL, THE ONLY TRUE “JUSTICE ” )and will not forsake his FAITHFUL ONES. They will be PROTECTED FOREVER, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off; the righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it FOREVER.
NONE of these promises above have been realized yet and God PROMISED HIS WORD would not return to him without first achieving the PURPOSE for which he sent it.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 – “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.”
John 5:28,29 – “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out – those who have done good will rise to live; and those who have done evil, will rise to be condemned.”
Ecclesiastes 9:10 – “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm ( “in the grave” KJV ) of the dead, where you are going, their is neither working, nor planning, nor knowledge, nor wisdom.”
John 3:13 – “NO ONE HAS EVER gone INTO HEAVEN except the ONE who came from HEAVEN – the Son of Man ( Jesus Christ ).”
So this tells us that our departed Love Ones that we MISS so dearly are simply at sleep in death and await to hear His voice to rejoin us in Paradise!
John 11: 11- 13 – “After he had said this, he went on to tell them, “Our friend Lazarus HAS FALLEN ASLEEP; but I am going there to WAKE him up.”
The account of Lazarus, who Jesus rose from the dead!
1 Thessalonians 4: 13 – 15 – “Brothers, we do not want you to be UNINFORMED about those WHO SLEEP IN DEATH, so that you DO NOT GRIEVE LIKE THE REST OF MANKIND, WHO HAVE NO HOPE. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those WHO HAVE FALLEN ASLEEP IN HIM.”
You must ask yourself then, “Am I UNINFORMED?”
Ephesians 6:12 – “For our struggle is NOT AGAINST flesh and blood, but AGAINST the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark World and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
Regardless of the beliefs, customs, or laws of the countries or nations we live in, Christians are to remain neutral regarding ALL NATIONAL POLICIES that require an rejection of our obedience and dedication to the SOVEREIGN OF THE UNIVERSE! (Acts 5:29 – “Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must OBEY GOD rather than men!”) Understanding that ultimately each person of the Earth either are or could be a potential brother or sister in Christ Jesus, therefore reserve judgement for Jehovah God!
James 4:12 – “There is ONLY ONE LAWGIVER AND JUDGE, the ONE who is able to SAVE and DESTROY. But you – who are you to judge your neighbor?
1 KINGS 8:39 – “Then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Forgive and act; deal with each man according to what he does, SINCE YOU KNOW HIS HEART (FOR YOU ALONE KNOW THE HEARTS OF ALL MEN),…
Psalms 37:10 – “A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.”
Proverbs 2:22 – “But the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the unfaithful will be torn from it.“
This identifies the evil within humanity who willingly submit to their own sinful nature and follow God’s and Mankind’s adversary, Satan the Devil.”
1 Peter 5:8 – “Be SELF-CONTROLLED AND ALERT. Your ENEMY the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”
A KEY BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE FOR LOVE! – FAITH!
Hebrews 10:38 – “But MY RIGHTEOUS ONE will live by faith, And if he shrinks back, I WILL NOT BE PLEASED WITH HIM.”
Hebrews 11:3 – “BY FAITH WE UNDERSTAND…….”
Hebrews 11:6 – “And WITHOUT FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who EARNESTLY seek him.
WHAT IF THE “CHRISTIAN” RELIGION I WAS BAPTIZED INTO DECIDES TO REVOKE MY MEMBERSHIP !
TRUE CHRISTIANS understand that revelation and understanding of Scripture comes only through God and that anyone utilizing scripture for “Good” acknowledge that it’s only by Holy Spirit that knowledge is conveyed.
John 16:13 – “But when HE, the Spirit of Truth comes, HE will guide you into all truth. HE will not speak on his own; HE will speak only what HE hears, and HE will tell you what is yet to come.”
This passage shows where the Church (Congregation) receives knowledge from Jehovah through his Active Force, the Holy Spirit and of no effort of our own other than to HONESTLY AND SINCERELY SEEK HIM OUT!
We recognize that our TRUE OBLIGATION is to save the lost!
James 5:20 – “remember this: Whoever turns a SINNER from the error of his way WILL SAVE HIM FROM DEATH AND COVER OVER A MULTITUDE OF SINS.”
And for those who “USE” the Gospel for reasons other than that mentioned above:
Philippians 1:18 – “But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from FALSE MOTIVES OR TRUE. CHRIST IS PREACHED. And because of this I REJOICE, YES, AND I WILL CONTINUE TO REJOICE,…..
The Scriptures states this in regard to whom and how Jehovah God carries out his mercies:
Romans 9:18 – “Therefore God HAS MERCY ON WHOM HE WANTS TO HAVE MERCY, AND HARDENS WHOM HE WANTS TO HARDEN.”
Brothers are to Trust and Believe that actions taken to keep the Church (Congregation) clean by removing an unrepentant believer for an apparent egregious and sinful offense should be accepted and adhered too for the health of the body.
HOW SHOULD CHRISTIANS VIEW THEIR “MAN OF GOD” OR FELLOW CHRISTIANS WHO INSTRUCT US IN HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS?
1 Corinthians 3:6 – “I planted the seed (Generally our parents), Apollos watered it (Generally our House of Worship), BUT GOD MADE IT GROW.”
This shows that it’s only through JEHOVAH GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT that we gain UNDERSTANDING and INSIGHT and should never lose focus on our King Jesus Christ!
“REAL MEN OF GOD” UNDERSTAND that it’s Jehovah God’s TRUST in US that enables US to convey accurately THE WORD revealed by HIS SPIRIT! WE DON’T NEED TO UNDERSTAND OR AGREE AT THE TIME, JUST OBEDIENT AND SPEAK WHATS BEEN CONFIRM BY HIS SPIRIT!!! That’s the Strength, Power, and Might of Proverbs 3:5,6 which admonish us to, “TRUST IN THE LORD with all YOUR HEART and lean NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING; in ALL your ways ACKNOWLEDGE HIM and HE WILL MAKE YOUR PATH STRAIGHT. ” And why are we instructed to apply this counsel? Well, consider Jeremiah 10:23, which reads, “I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps.”
It is OUR understanding of that RELIANCE on JEHOVAH GOD, to continue to remain in close relationship with him, in order to be used for HIS WILL! Isaiah 55: 8,9 comforts US in our TRUST OF JEHOVAH by reminding us, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Philippians 2:12,13 – “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed–not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence–continue to work out YOUR salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”
Thus “REMINDING” us, that it’s not going to be a defense of relying on the instructions received from our parents or our House of Worship (Preacher), that will exonerate us from our own willful disobedience!
So again, we don’t have to be “Scared” or “Frightened” to place our “Trust” in Jehovah God. He “WILL NEVER FAIL US!!!”
