JESUS CHRIST WANTS YOU SAVED


"For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth".
(I Timothy 2:3-4)


The Apostle Paul has written the epistles (Romans through Philemon) that gives us our doctrine of Salvation during this current Dispensation of Grace.

The Gospel is best shown in I Corinthians 15:1-4

      “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:1-4)

      “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13)

WHY SALVATION


      God created everything, including mankind. God is ALL loving, ALL merciful, ALL righteous, ALL knowing, and ALL powerful as well as being the source of ALL light. God has no part and will not tolerate anything that is not righteous. Righteous means just or lawful, so that means that anything that is not just or lawful will not be, nor can it be tolerated by God. “For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.” (Psalm 5:4)

      God created beings called angels before He created man, the angels were given the ability of free choice, to which man was given as well, and one of these angels (Lucifer/Satan) was given by God some power and dominion. Lucifer wanted more than that, he choose to rebel against God in trying to be as God is. God being the only one, who is ALL powerful, can not be defeated. Since Satan was unable to defeat God, he tried to win over mankind, and to separate man from God, beginning with Eve in the Garden. The angels just as mankind have the ability of free will, the ability to choose God or to deny God. God allowed Satan some freedom after his rebellion, just as God has given mankind some freedom/time with the choice of either following God or following Satan, for there is no other option, for Satan has claimed all that is not Godly. Now back to God being ALL: loving, merciful, and righteous, it would be wrong to force anyone to live forever in His presence who does not want to, so here we are with the choice to live forever with God, or we can CHOOSE not to live forever with God. We can choose whichever one we want but, if you remember God is ALL loving, ALL merciful, ALL righteous, ALL knowing, and ALL powerful as well as being the source of ALL light, if we choose not to live with God, what do you have left? You have no love, no mercy, no justice or law, and no light, the very definition of Hell. People do not want to think about Hell, or that an ALL loving God would make or put people into such a place, but remember you get to choose whether you go there or not. Satan would want us to believe that God puts us in Hell, so we would not believe in Him, for how can an ALL loving God place us in an eternity of torment, but God allows us the option, the choice, to live or not to live with Him. God being loving and merciful has made it easy for us to be with Him, remember He wants you saved and provided everything that you need to become saved, you need only to trust in The Gospel.

      “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”
(I Corinthians 15:1-4)

      Did you catch that?
All you need to do is sincerely trust The Gospel of Grace for your salvation!!
      Salvation, do you want it or need it? You decide whether to live in the light with a loving God forever, and you are also the one to decide to live in the darkness without: love, mercy or anything just (or lawful), for just as long………………………...................Eternity!!

Road Map to Salvation


Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Romans 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain . 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”


(1) Know/Believe/Accept/Trust that everyone is a sinner.    Romans 3:10 and 3:23
(2) The cost of sin is spiritual death (eternal separation from God).    Romans 5:12 and 6:23
(3) Jesus Christ paid the price for YOUR sins.    Romans 5:8
(4) Know/Believe/Accept/Trust that Jesus Christ Died for you and arose from the dead.    I Corinthians 15:1-4


      Everyone is eligible for Salvation, nothing (no amount of work/s, or lack of work/s) in your past can prevent you from getting saved, only your disbelief in the Gospel will prevent your Salvation.
Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men”


      The Free Gift of Salvation means:
(1) To know and believe that you are a sinner
(2) Jesus Christ Died for Your Sins
(3) Jesus Christ Arose up three days later {His proof that He is God and Jesus Christ's payment is sufficient for your sin debt}
(4) Allowing God to pay for Your sins and choosing to not pay them yourself {by sincerely trusting The Gospel}

II Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Revelation 20:14-15 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

      The Sin Debt Must be paid by someone, either you can pay it (In Hell currently, those in Hell today will eventually be cast forever into The Lake of Fire) or you can allow God to pay it for you. Jesus Christ wants you Saved, He died for you. Jesus Christ already submitted the payment required for you to become saved!!!
      All you need to do is trust what Jesus Christ did and Live for eternity with Him.

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

      At birth our sin nature has separated us from God, but we have good news, God wants us back. God died to pay the Sin Debt (mankind’s sin) to bring us back to Him/God.

I Corinthians 15:3-4 “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

Faith Alone Saves



Romans 2:16 “In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.”

II Timothy 2:8 “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel”

To understand how Salvation is by faith alone, you must rightly divide God's Word, today in the Dispensation of The Grace of God we were given The Gospel of Grace.
Salvation in this Dispensation is clear.

Salvation is by faith alone, and by no work/s are we able to be Saved on our own merit, some might not like what I just wrote, so let us go to God's Word (King James Bible) for it is always the Final Authority in all Bible doctrines, never what I say or any other man, be it a pastor, deacon/elder, bible college teacher or religious system.

II Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

I Corinthians 12:5-6 “And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.”

Ephesians 3:2 “If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:”

Romans 1:16-17 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”

What is Faith???
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

So what does The Apostle Paul say about faith and Salvation?

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast”

Romans 5:1 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”

Titus 3:5-7 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Romans 8:24-25 “For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.”

II Corinthians 5:7 “(For we walk by faith, not by sight)”

During this Dispensation of Grace, The Gospel we are saved by was given to Paul by Jesus Christ, to give to us.
Salvation is by faith alone plus nothing.


Faith in what?
Faith that Jesus Christ is God (The only begotten Son of God) and that Jesus Christ lived and died to atone for our sins, arose up three days later from the dead with power, to justify us before God, where our works are worthless and we are unable to save ourselves from OUR sin debt.

I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”

II Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

I Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

Romans 5:1-2 “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”

Ephesians 6:19 “And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel”

      I pray that everyone will search their hearts, whether they have trusted in The Gospel that Jesus Christ died for your sins.
All you need to do is believe and trust The Gospel (The Gospel is a Free Gift that God is offering to everyone), for Jesus Christ died for us all, the sinners of the world.

I pray that you will Trust the Gospel, and share it with others!!!

Forever Saved




II Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

There are three main ingredients in gaining a greater understanding of God's word.
One is Dispensation, though God's Nature does not change “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

God does change how He deals with mankind at different times throughout the Bible.
I Corinthians 12:5-6 “And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.”

      Without understanding the right division of God’s Word people (believers and non-believers alike) get confused and take certain scriptures out of context. Remember you need to think of whom the scripture is intended for, and who wrote it. The majority of doctrine in the bible is written for the Jew, the nation of Israel. There are certain things that were given to them, promises, consequences, and rules such as the law that we during this Dispensation of The Grace of God are not under. Today, Salvation once accepted, is sealed with the Holy Spirit. “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13) “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” (Ephesians 4:30)

      So Once you accept the Free Gift of Salvation that Jesus Christ has offered to everyone, that means to believe that you are a sinner, and that you are unable to in any way save yourself from eternal separation from God on your own, and you trust in The Gospel, that Jesus Christ died for YOUR sins and arose three days later, you are saved and eternally secure in Christ.
I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”

I Timothy 2:3-4 “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”


Believer’s Security in Christ


      The topic of eternal security is something that is very important to understand, for first you must be saved and then, later, after salvation, you should come unto the knowledge of the truth. This means that after trusting the Gospel of Grace for Salvation, you should study to learn the doctrines of God’s Word, and one of the doctrines in The Bible is Eternal Security and that doctrinal understanding comes with studying God's Word.

Ok, we will now look at Scripture that deals with this topic about Eternal Security, as well as looking at Scripture that shows the order of growth of a believer after Salvation.

I Timothy 2:3-4 “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
II Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

First, God wants you saved.
Then after Salvation, God wants you to study and understand His Word. That would mean that after Salvation you are to have the milk of The Word so you can start growing. Milk would be the foundational, building doctrines of God's Word.

Understand this, you will never be given knowledge in a dream, you will not get knowledge through The Holy Spirit without studying God’s Word, basically you will not just know biblical knowledge just by being saved. You are told to study God’s Word and without studying, you will:
(A) Not know God's Word and
(B) Become a workman that is ashamed, not being able to understand or rightly divide God's Word.

Paul had trouble within the congregation at the Church in Corinth, and rebuked them in the Corinthian Epistles. Paul wrote that they were babes in Christ, so Paul fed them with milk not meat, for they did not understand much, and they were filled with carnal thoughts and did carnal acts.
I Corinthians 3:1-2 “And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.”

We learn that milk is given before meat, and in Hebrews, we learn that meat has a function.
Hebrews 5:13-14 “For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

It is clear that if you are fed with the meat of the Word you will have the senses to discern both good and evil, and this comes after you are grown by the milk, which you should start with after Salvation.

I know that many people in many different various denominations throughout the world may not know how to rightly divide God's Word or even be using God’s Word, but all you need to become saved is this.

Trust The Gospel = To accept/believe that Jesus Christ Died for your sins, was buried, and arose the Third Day {proof that Jesus Christ was God} to justify you before God Almighty.

Many people who do not study God’s Word, or have a pastor that teaches as they should, can/may have doubts of their eternal security, for knowledge of Eternal Security comes later, first you have milk (after Salvation), and then meat, so that the man of God may be thoroughly furnished.

Studying God's Word, you will then learn/know that you have Eternal Security because you are sealed with The Holy Spirit.
“In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13) “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.” (Ephesians 4:30) “Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.” (II Corinthians 1:22)

Who is Jesus Christ



Who is God



God is.
When God told Moses to tell Israel who God’s name is, God told Moses to say: I AM THAT I AM.

God does indeed have many attributes and many names found within The Bible, but remember to learn about God or God’s attributes there is only one place to find that truth about Him, and that is in The King James Bible.

God wrote to us what God wanted us to know, and The Bible is the only way God communicates to us today, for God is not communicating to us in dreams, or visions, and God is not appearing to anyone and talking to them directly in this current Dispensation of Grace. (II Corinthians 5:7)
This Topic is to help show who God is, but I am posting only some of the attributes and names that God has, so study God’s Word for more.
Remember you can only know this from His Book, The King James Bible.

Omnipotent (God is all powerful, God’s Power is unlimited)
Omnipresent (God is everywhere at the same time, or God is present in all places at all times)
Omniscient (God is all knowing, God knows the future, the past, and the now)
Revelation 1:8 “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”

Jeremiah 23:23-24 “Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? 24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.”

Proverbs 15:3 “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.”

Isaiah 40:28 “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.”

Romans 11:33-36 “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? 35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.”

Daniel 2:20 “Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:”

Hebrews 4:12-13 “For the word of God 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.”

Isaiah 44:24 “Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself”

Remember God is the Author of the Bible so God is telling us who God is, for our benefit to learn about God.
I am using only a few of the verses available to show you God’s attributes, Please study the Bible to find more for yourself.

More Attributes of God are:
Self-Existent, Sovereign, Eternal, Immutable (God’s Nature never changes), Perfect, Sinless, Holy, Righteous, Creator (God created all things), Just, Good, Merciful, Loving, Gracious, and many, many more.

Some Names of God are:
LORD, Master, Teacher, Redeemer, Saviour, Advocate, Lamb of God, Immanuel, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, I AM, The Word,
Alpha and Omega, The First and the Last, Head of the Church, Bread of Life, High Priest, Chief Cornerstone, The Almighty,
Author and Finisher of our Faith, Counsellor, Judge, and many, many more.

I pray that you will never forget that God is Judge and Saviour. So if you are still in your sin, Lost and not saved, then you need to accept what God tells us to do in order to be made right with Him, Trust The Gospel for God has given it to you as a free Gift, Salvation is free. “For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.” (Psalm 5:4)

Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Romans 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain . 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”


(1) Know/Believe/Accept/Trust that everyone is a sinner.    Romans 3:10 and 3:23
(2) The cost of sin is spiritual death (eternal separation from God).    Romans 5:12 and 6:23
(3) Jesus Christ paid the price for YOUR sins.    Romans 5:8
(4) Know/Believe/Accept/Trust that Jesus Christ Died for you and arose from the dead.    I Corinthians 15:1-4


      Everyone is eligible for Salvation, nothing (no amount of work/s, or lack of work/s) in your past can prevent you from getting saved, only your disbelief in the Gospel will prevent your Salvation.
Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men”


      The Free Gift of Salvation means:
(1) To know and believe that you are a sinner
(2) Jesus Christ Died for Your Sins
(3) Jesus Christ Arose up three days later {His proof that He is God and Jesus Christ's payment is sufficient for your sin debt}
(4) Allowing God to pay for Your sins and choosing to not pay them yourself {by sincerely trusting The Gospel}

II Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Ephesians 1:13 “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise”

Romans 5:15-19 “But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”

The Trinity



I John 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”

Who is the Word? John clarifies it in the Gospel John

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Many People find the Triune Nature (or the coined term Trinity) of our One God hard to understand, and it is not something that can be totally understood, just believed. God tells us that there is only one God as well as telling us that He (God) exists in 3 Natures (1) The Father, (2) The Word/The Son/Jesus Christ, and (3) The Holy Ghost/Spirit.

The Hebrew word (used most) being translated into English in The Old Testament for God is Elohiym or Elohim (The Strongs Concordance reference is 430). Elohim pretty much means One God in plurality.

Many scriptures throughout The Bible alludes to the triune nature of God, but I will only be posting a few of them for quick reference, but always search the scriptures for yourself to seek the truth on this and all doctrines of The Bible.

II Corinthians 13:14 “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.”
Romans 8:9-10 “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.”
These two passages show that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are One.

“I and my Father are one.” (John 10:30) “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.” (John 14:9-11)
These passages show that The Father and Jesus are One.

Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”

Genesis 11:5-9 “And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”
The LORD came down and in v. 7, let us = One Lord in Plurality, but many scriptures show that there is only One LORD or GOD.

Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:”
Isaiah 44:6 “Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”
I Timothy 2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
The Godhead is composed of three natures (The Father, The Word/Son, and The Holy Ghost/Spirit), but only one of those three are seen/visible and that is Jesus Christ (The Son).

I Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

Colossians 2:6-9 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”

I Corinthians 2:10-14 “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

      In this Dispensation of Grace, The Holy Spirit does one thing for you that you need to know foremost, that is when you trust The Gospel of Grace, you are sealed with The Holy Spirit, so you are eternally sealed (Forever Saved) with God, and immediately become a temple of God in your flesh, God lives in you forever.
      Also in This Dispensation we are baptized by The Holy Spirit {II Corinthians 12:13} into The Body of Christ, which is different than what God did prior to this Dispensation, see Acts 1:5 when Jesus Christ spoke to The apostles and told them to wait and ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.

Ephesians 1:13 “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,”

Ephesians 4:30 “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”

I Corinthians 3:16 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”

I Corinthians 6:19 “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”

Jesus Christ is God



      It seems like too many people do not know That Jesus Christ is God, or I should say that many people choose to not allow Jesus Christ to be God, for God is Jesus Christ, and if you believe in His Word, meaning allowing His Word to be your only authority (The King James Bible) then you must acknowledge Jesus Christ is God, and this lesson will show you using The Scripture that Jesus Christ is indeed the one that created you, and is The Almighty, The only Saviour and Hence must be as He claims, God.

John 1:1-14 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2: The same was in the beginning with God. 3: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4: In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7: The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8: He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9: That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11: He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Ok, that was pretty clear, but some will claim The Word is not Jesus Christ, again they choose to not see what is clearly written, but we will go to another verse of Scripture to show whom was made flesh.
I Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

Jesus claimed to be God, and that was why the Jews were upset with Him in the Book of John when He claims to be one with The Father (God) and In I John 5:7 it shows the Triune Nature of God that includes Jesus Christ.
John 10:30-33 “I and my Father are one. 31: Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32: Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33: The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”

I John 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”

That is pretty clear, The Word are one with The Father, as Jesus Claimed in John 10:30 so we must allow The Scripture to be true and it says The Word is God, The Word is one with The Father, and That the Word was made flesh, to which we know to be Jesus Christ, so Again Jesus Christ is God.

I will now show verses that shows that the Saviour is God, and Jesus Christ is indeed that Saviour, the Only Saviour that we can have.
I Timothy 2:3 “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;”

II Timothy 1:10 “But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:”

Titus 2:13-14 “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14: Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”

Some would claim in Titus 2 verse 13, it is referring to two individuals, but to read it in context verse 14 makes it clear that it is indeed speaking of only one, and that one is Jesus Christ spoken of in verse 13.

Isaiah 45:21-23 “Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? And there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. 22: Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. 23: I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”

      I hope you looked carefully at Isaiah 45, only one God, only one Saviour, and lastly every knee shall bow to God. Jesus Christ is God and that is why the next verse I will show that every knee shall bow in the name of Jesus. If Jesus is not God, you might as well throw away your Bible, for it is useless unless every word of it is true, fortunately It is True and is shows us That Jesus Christ is not only God, but died for our sins and arose three days later to save us from ourselves.

Philippians 2:10 “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth”

Isaiah 44:6 “Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”

Revelation 1:5-18 “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6: And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7: Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8: I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. 9: I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10: I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11: Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12: And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13: And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14: His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15: And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16: And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17: And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

Isaiah 45:24 “Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;”

Colossians 1:3-17 “We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 4: Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, 5: For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; 6: Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth: 7: As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ; 8: Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit. 9: For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10: That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11: Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12: Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”

Lastly I will show you how Jesus Christ (The Lamb) offered Himself as a sacrifice to God. God offered Himself and we can see that it is indeed Jesus Christ that offered Himself to God, for all of mankind.

Genesis 22:8 “And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.”

Hebrews 9:11-14 “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

Revelation 5:5-9 “And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;”

Who is Jesus Christ



Jesus Christ is Fully (100%) Man



Jesus Christ was born of a woman.
Jesus Christ is of direct lineage from King David through His mother (Mary) and was also of direct lineage from King David through His adopted father (Joseph), so that makes Jesus Christ King of the Jews, to which He will sit on the Throne of David one day when He Returns to set up His 1000 year Kingdom.

Matthew 1:1-18 “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; 3 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; 4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; 5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 6 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; 7 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; 8 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias; 9 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias; 10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias; 11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: 12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; 13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. 17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations. 18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.”

Luke 3:23-38 “And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli, 24 Which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi, which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Janna, which was the son of Joseph, 25 Which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Amos, which was the son of Naum, which was the son of Esli, which was the son of Nagge, 26 Which was the son of Maath, which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Semei, which was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Juda, 27 Which was the son of Joanna, which was the son of Rhesa, which was the son of Zorobabel, which was the son of Salathiel, which was the son of Neri, 28 Which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Addi, which was the son of Cosam, which was the son of Elmodam, which was the son of Er, 29 Which was the son of Jose, which was the son of Eliezer, which was the son of Jorim, which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi, 30 Which was the son of Simeon, which was the son of Juda, which was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Jonan, which was the son of Eliakim, 31 Which was the son of Melea, which was the son of Menan, which was the son of Mattatha, which was the son of Nathan, which was the son of David, 32 Which was the son of Jesse, which was the son of Obed, which was the son of Booz, which was the son of Salmon, which was the son of Naasson, 33 Which was the son of Aminadab, which was the son of Aram, which was the son of Esrom, which was the son of Phares, which was the son of Juda, 34 Which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which was the son of Abraham, which was the son of Thara, which was the son of Nachor, 35 Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala, 36 Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe, which was the son of Lamech, 37 Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan, 38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.”

Revelation 22:16 “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”

I Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

II John 1:7-10 “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:”

Jesus Christ is Fully (100%) GOD



Jesus Christ was not always Man, but was always and will always be God, Our creator. Jesus Christ was God at His birth in Bethlehem and throughout His entire Life and Ministry on Earth. Jesus Christ was and Always is God.
Titus 2:13 “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;”

John 1:1-14 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

I John 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”

Isaiah 44:24 “Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself”

Ephesians 3:9 “And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:”

Colossians 1:10-17 “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”

Revelation 4:11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”

The Godhead



I John 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.”

John 1:1-14 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Who is the Word? ………………. The Word = Jesus Christ.
I Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

Colossians 2:6-9 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”

God = Godhead = Triune Being {Comprised of: (1) The Father, (2) The Son which is Jesus Christ, also is known as The Word, and (3) The Holy Spirit or also known as The Holy Ghost}.

God was Invisible, but The Word, Jesus Christ was manifest in the flesh and became visible so we could see God. Jesus Christ has The Father and The Holy Spirit within Him and is Him, so when mankind saw Jesus Christ, they saw all of God, for in Him (Jesus Christ) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Jesus Christ, I AM'S in The Book of John



Remember John does not include doctrine for Salvation for this current Dispensation, but all of The Bible is profitable and all of The Bible is truth that we should be aware of rightly divided.

John 6:47-48 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. 48 I am that bread of life.”

John 8:12 “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

John 10:7,9 “Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”

John 11:25 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:”

John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

John 15:1,5 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”

Jesus Christ is Perfect



Hebrews 4:14-15 “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

I Peter 2:21-24 “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”

Judas Iscariot, whom betrayed Jesus Christ, also said that Jesus Christ was Perfect and Innocent of any sin
Matthew 27:3-4 “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.”

II Corinthians 5:20-21 “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Jesus Christ, The Sacrifice



Sin/evil is wicked and totally contrary to a Perfect, Righteous God and God will not allow sin to dwell with Him, so we must deal with Our Sin.
Psalm 5:4 “For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.”

      Jesus Christ was without blemish (perfect) as well as being infinite, so He was able to be a sacrifice that could atone for our sins.

We have two ways to pay our sin debt:
(1) We as finite beings can live in Hell forever (infinity/infinite amount of time/forever) or
(2) We can allow Jesus Christ, and infinite being pay our sin debt for a finite amount of time (Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection three days later)

God is an infinite being so any sin (even a little one, would be an offense to God for infinity/forever) so to pay for your sin on your own, you being a finite (limited) being would need to pay for a infinite amount of time, which is forever. God paid the price on the cross for a finite amount of time, so you decide by the means to which you will pay your sin debt. You can pay the sin debt your self by Not accepting what Jesus Christ did on the cross and spend eternity (infinity) paying for it in Hell, or accept the Free Gift which Jesus Christ already submitted on your behalf, should you trust the Gospel. You need only to accept it and let God (Jesus Christ) pay you sin debt and spend an eternity with God who loves you more than anyone else on Earth.

Ephesians 5:2 “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”

The Old Testament told us that one day God would send someone to make amends for our sins (inquities, or transgressions) and that someone was Jesus Christ
Isaiah 53:4-12 “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. 10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”

In Leviticus and Exodus, it shows that a sacrifice to make atonement for sin must be without blemish (Perfect) and be made by fire.
Leviticus 1:3-4 “If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD. 4 And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.”

Exodus 29:25 “And thou shalt receive them of their hands, and burn them upon the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour before the LORD: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.”

In Matthew 12:40 and I Peter 3:18-19 Jesus Christ who became the Sin of the World in order to pay Our Sin Debt, went to Hell, literal Hell to deposit the Sin, for Remember what God's Word said, without blemish and with fire, so I believe scripture clearly points out that Jesus Christ was a sacrifice without blemish and with fire (when He went to Hell to deposit OUR SINS) to satisfy the requirements for the atonement for Sin.
II Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Matthew 12:40 “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

I Peter 3:18-19 “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;”

Acts 2: 27-31 “Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.”

Revelation 1:18 “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

Hebrews 9:22 “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”

Hebrews 4:14-15 “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”

Hebrews 9:26-28 “For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

Jesus Christ Died Once and offered Himself for OUR Sins, but if we do not accept that He Died for our sins, we choose to pay for our sins ourselves in Hell (oneday Hell will turn into the Lake of Fire). Know that there will be no more opportunities or chances for Our Sin debt to be paid, unless we accept Jesus Christ's payment for Our Sins, we will pay for Our Sins ourselves.
Hebrews 10:18-26 “Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. 19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,”

Hebrews 2:9 “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.”

I Peter 2:21-25 “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22ho did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.”

I Peter 3:18 “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit”

Romans 5:8-12 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. 12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned”

Hebrews 1:2-3 “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; 3 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:”

II Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Remember that NOT ONLY, did Jesus Christ Die (for Our Sins) but, Jesus Christ IS RISEN from the dead With Power!
Romans 1:3-4 “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; 4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:”

Simplicity in Jesus Christ, for Salvation



II Corinthians 11:2-4 “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”

Paul is telling us that Salvation is simple, but the serpent (Satan) through subtilty is corrupting The Gospel and if you are told something that adds or subtracts from the Gospel that Paul spoke of in his epistles, then It Is Wrong and God's Word said to let them (whomever preaches to you that false Gospel) to be accursed.
I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

Ephesians 2:4-9 “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Romans 3:10-25 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes. 19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;”

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Romans 5:15-19 “But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”

I Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

I Corinthians 15:45-57 “And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Whom did Jesus Christ Die For ?



Answer = Jesus Christ Died for Everyone



Hebrews 2:9 “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.”

Hebrews 10:10 “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”

I John 2:1-2 “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”

II Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

Revelation 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”

Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,”

Jesus Christ's Earthly Ministry



Romans 15:8 “Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:”

Galatians 4:4-5 “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”

Jesus Christ's life, or Earthly Ministry was to the Nation of Israel (The Jews) but, Jesus Christ Died for Everyone.

Matthew 1:21-23 “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”

The Old Testament prophecy in Isaiah was spoken towards the Jews Only, and Jesus Christ was the fulfillment of that sign for the Jews.
Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

Luke 1:13-17 “But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. 16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

Luke 1:31-33 “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

Luke 2:21-27 “And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb. 22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; 23 (As it is written in the law of the LORD, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) 24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. 25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. 26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law

            Jesus Christ was born under the Law, and did not in His Earthly Ministry remove the Law, God dealt with the Nation of Israel (The Jews) differently than He is Today with us in This current Dispensation of The Grace of God. Two Gospels: One under Law, one not under the Law. Rightly Divide to find truth, and all becomes clear, without contradictions. Jesus Christ Taught under the Law and preached the Gospel of the Kingdom, the 12 disciples were told to preach The Gospel of the Kingdom, not the Gospel of Grace.

            People who do not study God’s Word and do not go to a church that teaches God’s Word rightly divided do not know this, but the truth is there for anyone to read, Jesus Christ's Earthly ministry was primary, not exclusively to Israel, not the whole world, which means gentiles had to bless Israel and go through Israel’s priests to get too God. Israel was to preach the truth of God unto the world, but when they rejected Jesus as Their Christ, Jesus Christ decided to reach out to the world directly, without going through the nation of Israel in this new (different) dispensation that we call the Dispensation of the Grace of God, which has a different Gospel, the Gospel of Grace, that God had Paul teach us in I Corinthians 15:1-4.

Exodus 19:5-8 “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. 7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. 8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD.”

Jesus Christ is The Light of The World





John 8:12 “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”

John 9:5 “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

Psalm 119:105 “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

John 1:1-14 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

            In the Old Testament, there are many places that allude to Jesus Christ, for Jesus Christ (The Word of God/The Communicator) was always a part of The Triune Godhead. The Bible (Our Final Authority about God and God’s Word) comes directly from God and all that God says is as a light to bring us out of the darkness (life without God).

II Samuel 22:29 “For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.”

John 12:35-36 “Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. 36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.”

Ephesians 5:1-8 “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. 3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:”

Philippians 2:15 “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;”

            We are to live our physical (our flesh of blood) lives for Jesus Christ and allow The Light of God (The Holy Spirit) that is sealed within us, to shine out of us with our godly behaviour. We are to be an example to the Lost (those in darkness/the unsaved), and allow the Light of God that resides within us to guide others to the Light (Jesus Christ) for their salvation.

Matthew 5:14-16 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

Section Three: God’s Word


The Word of God
KJV Only



The Word of God



            The Word of God is The Bible, but are all bibles God’s Word? Many might not think about it, but having the correct Bible is very important. When you read the Bible you read it because you believe God is The Author (by inspiring men, moved by The Holy Ghost). You need to trust that when you read the Bible, it is God’s Word, and not mans. God is perfect and never lies, so that makes God’s Word The Bible, which means the only Bible in English is The King James Bible, for all other English so-called bibles are corrupt, not being God’s preserved perfect Word, so they would not in fact be a true Bible.

II Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” God used man (many writers in fact) to ink The Scriptures, The Scriptures (The Bible/God’s Word) is both a history of mankind to see how man got separated from God with sin, and it shows the plan God has to bring us back to Him. God shows many changes within The Bible, of both how God changed how He dealt with mankind, but also it shows how mankind, too often rebelled against God, but God made sure that we can always know what God requires out of mankind, for God preserved His word for us.
Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
Psalm 12:6-7 “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”

           When you compare other bibles with the King James Bible, verse for verse, you will find that all the other English translations has verses that do not honor God (Jesus Christ) as the verses from the King James Bible does. The other English translations omits verses, part of verses, as well as changing the meaning of verses that are not omitted. Some would claim that the newer English translations use better and older manuscripts that were not available to the translators of 1603, which was commissioned by King James of England, that is not accurate; they had access to those manuscripts, but rejected them for their errors, and those older manuscripts are what all the other English bibles are based on, and are not true Bibles.
           If God promised to preserve His Word, and He said He would, then you must be able to have a perfect copy that you can hold in your hands to be your final authority on all bible doctrines. If God promised something that is not true, if God is a liar, then how can you trust anything that God said, you would not be able to trust anything in a bible that has a god that lies, including a salvation gospel.

            Fortunately we do indeed have a God that does not lie, we do indeed have a God that we can trust whatever He says. God told us several times what He thinks of people that changes His word, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35) “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:18-19)

So forget what man says and trust in God’s Word, “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” (I Corinthians 2:5)
            Do not take my word for it, read and compare God’s Word with the other translations, for if they are not the same, then they must be wrong. Take God at His word that God has preserved His word for mankind in the King James Bible.
Prior to 1611, God preserved His Word, in manuscripts copied from the originals, written from the original tongues that they were written with (Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek). Since 1611, God has used the English language with The Bible that was commissioned by King James of England, commonly called the King James Version (KJV) or The King James Bible. Today we can all handle and study God's Word for our Final Authority, but God preserved what He earlier inspired and This Website uses only King James Bible verses.

The Apostle Paul had trouble with man wanting to use words that were not God's in his time as well “For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.” (I Thessalonians 2:13) and “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.” (II Corinthians 2:17).

Do not fall into the same trap that Satan, in the guise of the serpent, used from the beginning to have man question the Word of God.
Genesis 3:1 “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”

This is another Ingredient to understanding God's Word.
The first Ingredient mentioned is understanding Dispensation, the second is using God's Word, not man's word. “For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” (Romans 3:3-4)

Use the Word of God, The King James Bible. The third main Ingredient (First and most Important I should say) in understanding God's Word is to be a believer, Trust in The Gospel, become saved.
I Corinthians 2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
God has placed understanding of a lot of His Word beyond the grasp on non-believers, and given it to His Children who seek it. God's Children are all who Trust The Gospel of Grace for their salvation that Paul was given to us and best seen in I Corinthians 15:1-4.

What I mean by KJV ONLY



KJV = King James Version Only/ King James Bible
I know that to many the phrase “KJV ONLY” are very strong words that angers, confuses, or is misunderstood. I personally will not tell anyone that God's Word is anything but the King James Bible, for all of the newer English translations are based on corrupt manuscripts using Westcott and Hort.

What I mean by King James Only.

I believe that God's Word is the Authorized Version of 1611 (most KJV Bibles in use today are the Oxford’s 1769 edition) or better known as the King James Version/ King James Bible, for all other English translations have omitted, added, or changed portions of, or entire verses from God's Word. God has blessed the KJV in the four hundred years since God had His Word translated (preserved) into English. Remember God is The Author of the Bible and God preserved it, and man can not claim credit in anyway on God’s Word. You might want to check about how the other English Translations has copyright infringement warnings on them.

I believe that God preserved His Inspired Word in the King James Bible, and no one today needs to study Greek or Hebrew to read God’s Word.

I believe that the Minority Texts, which all new modern English bibles are using to translate into English are corrupt, even in their original written language. The early church believers thought those texts (minority texts) were corrupt so they did not use those manuscripts, that should be a sign enough for us today, but the fact that those minority texts are in large disagreement with the Majority Texts as well as the other minority texts in their own groupings, should show you that something is wrong. Those differences among the minority texts, are more than just a misprint or spelling error. Early on writers who did not believe that God's Word is literal, and did not believe that Jesus Christ was God, and did not believe that salvation is by Faith alone plus nothing, changed manuscripts to say what they believed, and those writers are the foundation for the corrupt bibles today. Those differences are purposely written false doctrine, to which we should all be able to clearly see when we study God’s Word and put on The Armour of God:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:10-18)

Remember if someone is not saved and does not allow God’s Word to be their Final Authority, then they are not someone you should listen to on God’s Word. Many of the writers that advocate the minority texts, do not believe that Faith alone saves, they add works which is contrary to true Bible Doctrine, as well as other stands of Bible Doctrine, contrary to God's Word (King James Bible).

Majority Texts = over 90% of manuscripts that agree with each other, while the Minority texts = are those manuscripts that do not agree with the Majority Texts, and I might add has many differences among themselves as well.

I do not believe that the King James Bible in any way gives superior or more revelation in God’s Word than the original Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew Text (Majority Texts), BUT to my knowledge no original texts exist today, just copies of those originals, so the King James Bible is our source for God's Word.

I believe that even though the other English translations are corrupt. God being God and wanting all to come to salvation allowed the Gospel of Grace to remain, not as clearly as shown in the King James Bible, but I do not believe that one needs a KJV to become saved. Warning those corrupt bibles are not God’s Perfect (Preserved) Word.

Psalm 12:6-7 “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”

To those that claim that there is no perfect translation out there for us to read, I must say that they do not serve my God, for My God does not LIE, and if God said He would do something, then He DOES IT! God said He would preserve His Word.

Revelation 22:18-19 “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

I cannot see how anyone that claims God is perfect and all Powerful can ignore what God had written for us in His Word. None of the newer English translations are the same in meaning from verse to verse throughout the entire bible. You might want to ask the copyright office why that is, since every new translation brings in millions of dollars into the hands of greedy people selling books that claim to be God’s Word.

One does not need a 4, 6 or 7 year degree to notice that something is different from something else. Compare the KJV to other translations, if one word is omitted, or one verse then it means something other than what the KJV says. That would mean ONE of translations is NOT GOD’S WORD. The KJV has been proven by history to save and bring forth revivals throughout the U.S. and in other countries, IT IS GOD’S WORD, and God has blessed it in the four hundred years it has been around.

I pray that anyone that does not agree with this Topic, to honestly compare bibles with The King James Bible and pray on this issue, for it is a big difference holding onto God’s Word or some imitation that contains some of God’s Word within its bounding. Let God be true, and let His Word guide you in all things.

Bible Overview



The Bible. ----------------------------------- What is it? ----------------------------------- How do I read it?

            The Bible is the Word of God. God created all things including man. The Bible is The Book where God tells us how creation started and where we are now in that timeline after creation. The Bible is written for man, so The Bible's focus is on what God would have us to know about mankind's creation, and where mankind separated itself from God, and then The Bible shows us (mankind) God's plan to bring us back to Him (God). God dealt with mankind differently within The Bible, and those ways that God dealt with mankind in a certain way are called Dispensations. God reveals the understanding of His Word in a progressive manner, so we need to understand that not only did God reveal to mankind knowledge in a progressive manner, but God also reveals knowledge to each individual who studies God’s Word in a progressive manner as well.

In The Bible it tells us that there is Only One God (a Triune Natured God), God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” (I John 5:7)

The Bible shows that early on in creation, one creature (Satan/Lucifer) created by God, wanted to be as God is “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” (Isaiah 14:12-14), and (Satan/Lucifer) rebelled against God.


The Bible shows how Satan, pulled man into sin (that which separates man from God) through temptation to disobey God in the Garden of Eden. The Bible then shows us how God loves us and BOUGHT us back from eternal death, which is separation from God forever.

Remember that Sin must be dealt with and God shows us that there are two ways, we can deal with our sin debt:
(1) We can pay it ourselves and spend eternity without God in a place currently called Hell {Hell will later be emptied into The Lake of Fire forever} or
(2) We can Trust The Gospel, allow God (Jesus Christ) to pay it for us and we can spend an eternity with God.
      Know that Jesus Christ already submitted the payment, trusting the Gospel is free.

How to read the Bible.

Know that the Author of the Bible is God, and God used many men (moved by The Holy Ghost) to ink the Bible, by the Inspiration of God. God gave us The Bible (His Word), to be Our Final Authority in how we should live. Know that The Bible is broken up into dispensations (Dispensation = How God deals with mankind during a defined time or circumstance). Know that things that are different are not the same.

The Bible starts off in Genesis, The creation of all things, and the fall of mankind through sin. The Bible shows how we are unable to live a life without sin, and how sin separates us from God. God created us to have fellowship with Him and even though we separated ourselves from God with sin, God is always wanting us to return to Him. Many writers through the inspiration of God inked The Bible

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (II Timothy 3:16)

God dealt with mankind at sundry times, in divers manners. This understanding of Dispensations is needed to understand The Bible, we need to always ask ourselves who wrote this, and to whom, in order to better understand The Bible you need to understand the divisions that God placed within The Bible. Those divisions are where God dealt with mankind in a certain way. One Example is God told the Nation of Israel to not eat pork, so eating pork by the Jew at that time would be wrong.

“And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.” (Deuteronomy 14:8)

Today, we are in the Dispensation of Grace, and God told The Apostle Paul to tell us that it is ok to eat pork or anything else for that matter when we receive it with thanksgiving. “For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.” (I Timothy 4:4-5)

This is just one example of the many changes God made from one Dispensation to the next, so when you read The Bible just remember that you need to rightly divide, for if God tells us to rightly divide then, some things are meant to be divided. Remembering that, is one of the keys to understanding God's Word.

“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15)

Know that we need to properly divide God's Word, and that All Scripture is for one, two, three or all four of the following ways: “for All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (II Timothy 3:16)

Recap

(1) Be a Believer in God, and Trust The Gospel of Grace for your Salvation
(2) Be a Believer in God's Word (King James Bible)
(3) God meant every word, take it literal (excepting the few times God uses symbolism)
(4) Lastly we also need to understand progressive revelation, God choose to reveal things at certain times and it is only after God reveals something that we are able to understand it.

Steps you need to know for Growth in understanding God’s Word



  1. Know that God is Real
  2. God’s Word is True (King James Bible)
  3. God’s Word is full of contradictions
  4. God’s Word has no mistakes
  5. You need to know that God dealt with mankind with either an Earthly or Heavenly Focus
  6. God used Moses to let Israel know something (Earthly Focus)
  7. Jesus Christ’s Earthly Ministry is to Israel (Earthly Focus)
  8. God used Paul to tell the World something (Heavenly Focus)
  9. God gave Peter a Gospel (good news) different than the one God gave to Paul
  10. Salvation is needed if you want to understand most of God’s Word
  11. Studying, not just reading a little
  12. Sincere Prayer with Patience is needed


            “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”
(Psalm 14:1) “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” (Psalm 12:6-7)


“Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15)
Studying means comparing, and finding out why things are different and that understanding explains the why we need to divide God’s Word as God intended.

Luke 9:1-5………………………..…………..compared to.………………………………….Luke 22:35-38


“Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. 4 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart. 5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.” (Luke 9:1-5)

“And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. 36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. 37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. 38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.” (Luke 22:35-38)

Joel 3:9-10……….………………………..compared to ……………..…….……………………. Micah 4:1-7

“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: 10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.” (Joel 3:9-10)

“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. 5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever. 6 In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; 7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.” (Micah 4:1-7)

The differences are easy to understand, when you realize that God is talking about two things:
(1) Kingdom on Earth Doctrine (Earthly Focus/Purpose) and
(2) Tribulation Doctrine (Earthly Focus/Purpose).
Peace on Earth is peaceful, no wars and no need for weapons (a sword), but Tribulation Doctrine is violent and weapons are needed, for there is war.


Ephesians 2:8-9……….………………………..compared to ……………..…….……………………. James 2:24

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

“Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only” (James 2:24)


God had Paul write to the Ephesians (the Body of Christ) with information that works are not a part of our Salvation, yet God had James tell his crowd (Israel) that works were very much needed, in addition to their faith.
God also had Paul say that our sins were forgiven, so our Salvation is sealed forever (Ephesians 4:30) compared to what God had Peter tell Israel in early Acts, that their sins MAY be blotted out/providing they endure until the end (Matthew 24:13).

Colossians 1:14……….………………………..compared to ……………..…….……………………. Acts 3:19


“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” (Colossians 1:14)

“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”
(Acts 3:19)


            Those who are lost (those who are not saved), those who refuse to trust The Gospel for their Salvation are not the people you should allow to teach you about God’s Word. Far too many pastors/bible teachers, I fear are lost and teach:
(1) Following the Law of Moses,
(2) The Gospel Peter spoke which was for Israel under an Earthly Focus for Salvation,
(3) God replaced Israel with today's church (The Body of Christ) and
(4) That any bible is God’ s Word,
(5) That all doctrines of the Bible belongs to us, and
(6) Everyone in the Bible get saved the same way.

Those teachings will not get anyone saved, and if the teacher/pastor you are listening to does not believe in God’s Word or in God (Jesus Christ) then you have met what God told us to watch out for in the Corinthian Epistles.
            “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (II Corinthians 11:13-15) “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (I Corinthians 2:12-14)


Section Four Summary

Laying the Foundation in Right Division



Remember God is The Author of The Bible, and God wrote, through Paul, Scripture for Doctrine, for us today.
Paul’s Epistles are: Romans, I and II Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, I and II Thessalonians, I and II Timothy, Titus and Philemon.

We can break down I Timothy 2:4 into two segments, both are important to look at how to:
(1) To be saved
(2) To come unto the knowledge of the truth

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” (I Timothy 2:3-4)

We can see that after Salvation, God would have us to learn His Word, and come unto the knowledge of the truth. We can break down II Timothy 2:15 into three segments to assist us in how to come unto the knowledge of that truth.
(1) How to attain it, (2) Why it is important, and (3) Clear instructions while studying God’s Word (the word of truth).
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15)

God’s Word has a lot of information, and Since God is The Author of all of it, He is aware that it needs to be Rightly Divided, so we should obey what God told us to do, and that includes where God gave to us a pattern to follow. That pattern was God given, so when you follow the pattern, you are following God. “Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.” (I Timothy 1:16) “And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.” (I Corinthians 15:8)

            Why is Paul and not Peter our pattern? (1) We are not Israel, or under the covenant given to Israel (2) After Israel fell from it’s standing of preeminence, God turned to a different method (Dispensation) to deal with mankind and Paul was given that method, to give to you. Paul was given that information after Israel fell, and was set aside, and God told us that in the following scripture.

“What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. 9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. 11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy”. (Romans 11: 7-11)

Bible Believing teaches us four things that is profitable by studying God’s Word (Scripture), Bible Beliving also shows us that God is the Author of The Bible, by inspiration. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” (II Timothy 3:16-17)

The Dispensation of Mystery (Grace of God) was given to Paul, to be given to the world.
“For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, 2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;” (Ephesians 3:1-5)

Lets Compare for a moment, What God wrote to us in different Scripture verses. God is The Author of all Scripture.
Romans 11:13……………………………… compared to…………………………………. Romans 15:8

“For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:” (Romans 11:13)

“Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:” (Romans 15:8)

Paul wrote Romans, so Paul in Chapter 11, is sent to the Gentiles, and Jesus Christ in chapter 15, was (1) sent to the Jews (circumcision), and (2) Jesus Christ was there also to confirm the promises unto the fathers (Jews again).
Lets us compare again. Peter verses Paul.

Acts 3:19-21 …………………………… compared to…………………………………. Romans 16:25-26

“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. 20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” (Acts 3:19-21)

Spoken of all since the world began…...hmm…. that is interesting compared to what God had Paul write, which was kept secret since the world began.

“Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:” (Romans 16:25-26)

            We saw that our sins are forgiven at Salvation according to The Gospel, God sent Paul with, and we saw that Peter had a Gospel as well, but it did not deal with sin at that moment, they had to wait (endure to the end, Matthew 24:13) and IF they continued to obey God and do what God told them, THEN their sins may be blotted out when the times of refreshing shall come, they had to wait and hope that their sins would be dealt with later. (Acts 3:19).

What is a Dispensation



“And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.” (I Corinthians 12:5-6)

            God’s nature never changes, but we see that God has dealt with mankind in a changing manner from Genesis to Revelation. When God changes His operation with mankind, God’s requirement to how man should respond to God changes as well.

We go to the book of Hebrews, not written to you for doctrine, but to whom was it written to? Yes the Jews (Hebrews), we can go for definitions for all Scripture is profitable to us today, rightly divided.
God (Jesus Christ is God) is The Author of All Scripture.

“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,” (Hebrews 1:1) “ Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8)


Let’s Focus on Bible Belief for a moment. God’s Word is The King James Bible, but not everything in The Bible is God’s Word. I say this for printers, may add commentaries, maps, and short introductions to each Book, and all these items are Not God’s Word, and in fact most cases the added writings are wrong and misleading.

One example is the maps that might be at the back of your Bible that shows that Moses and Israel did not cross the Red Sea, even though God wrote that they did. Bible unbelief is found everywhere, so lets believe what God wrote to us, and be aware of those that do not believe in God or His Word.

Another example is that almost every bible (including the King James Bible) has a blank page just before Genesis which has one phrase written on it {The Old Testament} and just before Matthew there is a blank page with just one phrase written on it {The New Testament}.

Now, I have found exceptions to this, but the point is the printers, or even the translators are implying a mistruth to you, for The Old Testament does not start in Genesis 1:1, and neither does the New Testament start with Matthew 1:1.


Lets go to Scripture, and see what God wrote to us on this topic of Testaments.

“Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.” (Luke 22:20) “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; 12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. 16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. 18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. 19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.” (Hebrews 9:11-20)

See how the New Testament was to Israel, where the Old Testament was also to Israel.

“Then verily the first covenanthad also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. 2 For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. 3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; 4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; 5 And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly. 6 Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. 7 But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:” (Hebrews 9:1-7) “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. 7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. 8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:” (Hebrews 8:6-10)

Most people see clearly that The Book of Jeremiah is not doctrine for us today, and yet they think Hebrews is, but Jeremiah contains prophecy that The book of Hebrews also contains and both of them is written to whom? ……. The answer is Israel.

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”
(Jeremiah 31:31-33)
“Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, 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.” (Hebrews 10:9-17)

The phrase The Covenant with Israel is pretty much interchangeable with The Testament to Israel, providing you are referring to the covenant dedicated with blood. The Covenant to Israel (Exodus 19) and Testament to Israel (Hebrews) are both to Israel, not the entire world. Today Israel is set aside, so we can see that we are not currently in The New Testament, nor were we (Gentiles, and those Jews today that are saved by The Gospel of Grace, that God had Paul tell us about) in The Old Testament. We are neither Old or New Testament saints, but we are in fact, part of The Mystery, The Body of Christ.

Where does the Testaments start? Hebrews 9:16-20 tells us that.
Old Testament started with Israel, and the blood sacrifices Moses did in The Book of Exodus 24:8 … see Hebrews 9:18-20
The New Testament could not start any earlier than with The Blood of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 9:16): in Chapter 27 of Matthew, Chapter 15 of Mark, Chapter 23 of Luke, and Chapter 19 of John, that means over 95% of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John is part of The Old Testament which again is to Israel, not the entire world.

The Bible is like a film (a movie) not a snapshot (a picture) and that means we need the entire Bible not just a portion of it, and it also means we should be aware of the changes that occur during the progressive revelation of God’s Word and be aware of to whom God is talking to. Most of The Bible (Exodus to early Acts and Hebrews to Revelation) God was talking to Israel, and we need to know that we are not Israel.

“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29)

Ok, we see that God wrote to us in Deuteronomy that some things belong to God, that are a secret to others, and it is not until God reveals that thing, that we are able to know it. God throughout The Bible is revealing things in a progressive manner. We will show one such thing, that is different and revealed at different times (Hebrews 1:1) and that thing we will look at will be meat (food for man).

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” (Genesis 1:29)

Wow, only herbs and fruit are to be eaten.

“And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. 3Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. 4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.” (Genesis 9:2-4)

Ok, now we can eat all creatures, along with herbs and fruit with only one limitation/one exception (the blood).

“And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. 3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat. 4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. 5 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. 6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. 7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. 8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you. 9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat. 10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you: 11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination. 12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you. 13 And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray, 14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind; 15 Every raven after his kind; 16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, 17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl, 18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle, 19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. 20 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. 21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth; 22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind. 23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you. 24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even. 25 And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even. 26 The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean. 27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even. 28 And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you. 29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, 30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole. 31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.” (Leviticus 11:1-31)
Ok, a pretty long list, that pretty much limits what or I should say (limits whom?) The Answer = Israel, it limits Israel to what Israel can and cannot eat.

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.” (I Timothy 4:1-5)

God had Paul write to us, that now nothing is limited for food for us today.
In verses 1-3, God had Paul write that if you were still following The Law, that Moses gave to Israel, it is a doctrine of devils to believe or tell others that you are still to follow what Moses told Israel back in Leviticus chapter 11.


Progressive Revelation within Old Testament Books



I will now present Scripture that is different within Old Testament Books, and remember most of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John falls into Old Testament Books.

Matthew 10:5-10………………………..compared to…………..……………………….Matthew 28:16-20

“These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.” (Matthew 10:5-10)

“Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:16-20)

In Matthew 28, Israel was still under the Law given to Israel from Moses, remember Jesus Christ was born under Law and never removed Israel from the Law. Peter and the 11 were under the Law {God was still dealing with Israel with an Earthly Focus/Purpose}, and they were to tell everyone (any gentile that blessed Israel and went through the priests of Israel to get to God) to also follow the Law, which is different from what God told Paul to tell us in Paul’s Epistles.

Luke 18:31-34………………………………..compared to…………………….…………….Luke 24:44-47

“Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. 32 For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: 33 And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again. 34And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.” (Luke 18:31-34)

“And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” (Luke 24:44-47)

See, in Luke 18 they did not understand that Jesus Christ must Die, but in Luke 24, God made them able to understand this where earlier in Luke 18, it was hid from them by God.

Luke 9:1-5………………………..…………..compared to.………………………………….Luke 22:35-38

“Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. 3 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece. 4 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart. 5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.” (Luke 9:1-5)

“And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. 36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. 37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. 38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.” (Luke 22:35-38)

Luke 2:14……………………………………..compared to……………….…………………….Luke 12:51

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” (Luke 2:14)

“ Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:” (Luke 12:51)

Joel 3:9-10……….………………………..compared to ……………..…….……………………. Micah 4:1-7

“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: 10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.” (Joel 3:9-10)

“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. 5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever. 6 In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; 7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.” (Micah 4:1-7)

The differences is easy to understand, when you realize that God is talking about two things, (1) Kingdom on Earth Doctrine and (2) Tribulation Doctrine.
Peace on Earth is peaceful, no wars and no need for weapons, but Tribulation Doctrine is violent and weapons are needed, for there is war.


Progressive Revelation within Paul’s Writings



“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;” (Acts 26:16)

            Paul was given information (things) in a progressive manner, so Paul at first did things, that later he had to correct. Example water baptism, in Acts 16, Acts 18, and Acts 19 he water baptized, but in I Corinthians 1:17, Paul stated that God did not send him to baptize. God came to Paul on multiple occasions to teach Paul the Doctrines that God wanted you to know today. Paul’s letters to us shows this progressive revelation from God. We find The Gospel that saves us today in Paul’s writings, but not every word of Paul is Doctrine for us, example the early chapters in Romans is a commentary of what God told us in Genesis and other Old Testament Books.

In Conclusion, laying the foundation of Right Division requires us to remember that The Bible is fluid, not solid and that God changes how He deals with mankind at different times (Hebrews 1:1), shown from Genesis to Revelation. Also we must remember that pulling a Bible Doctrine from a previous Dispensation (Age) for today is wrong, or as Paul stated in I Timothy chapter 4, a doctrine of devils.

“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-9)

            This is no small matter, if someone tells you to repent and be water baptized, and follow The Law that Moses was told to give to Israel, then BEWARE, for that person is accursed, God repeated that statement in verse 9, so God is very clear to tell us that Paul was given the information(things) for us to become Saved in This Current Dispensation (Age) of Grace.

God was still dealing with Israel in early Acts, and Amos is clearly Old Testament which is for Israel, so rightly divide to know what belongs to Israel, and what belongs to us (The Body of Christ).

Acts 1:3-6…………………………………….. compare with ……………….………………. Amos 9:11-15

“The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. 6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:1-6)
“In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: 12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. 13 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. 14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. 15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.” (Amos 9:11-15)

Our Nature



“Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.” (Romans 6:6)

            Our old man is dead, that is what Romans 6:6 states, but what exactly is our old man? It is our born given nature, being born into the family of Adam, we are sinners. Did you get that? ........ We are sinners, before we do anything, because we inherited it from Adam, and that (at birth) nature is our old man or what we can call our old nature.

II Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Ephesians 4:22-24 “That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”

            What does talking got to do with anything?
This is a major reason why we need to study, conversation can mean more than talking as we know it today, it can mean a course of manners, behaviour, keeping company with others (Citizenship) sharing same beliefs, etc. Using the Webster’s 1828 dictionary will help you a great deal while studying God’s Word, for English meanings have changed some since 1611, and the 1828 Webster’s dictionary is much better than using most of today’s dictionaries.

            “Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; 10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:” (Colossians 3:9-10) “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” (II Corinthians 4:16) “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” (Ephesians 2:2-6)

In times past, our old nature brought us what???             Our old nature brought us death, for our old nature is sinful and corrupt.

“For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.” (Psalm 5:4)

            Sin separates us from God, but God loves us and gave unto us a Gift, should we choose to allows Jesus Christ to pay our sin debt for us, we can have a new nature, and be raised up to live with Jesus Christ forever. Once we accept Jesus Christ’s payment for our sins, once we trust in The Gospel. (Trusting what Paul told us in I Corinthians 15:1-4 makes us a new creature) When we become a member of the Body of Christ we then have what Paul stated in Philippians 3:20

“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:” (Philippians 3:20)

“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” (II Corinthians 4:16)

It is not easy, but we can fight our old nature by feeding our new nature, but do not fret when you fail to live for God as you would want to, for even Paul struggled as he told us in Romans chapter 7.

            “For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.” (Romans 7:14-25) “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” (Galatians 5:16-17)

Dispensation Defined


            “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” (Hebrews 13:8) “For I am the LORD, I change not;” (Malachi 3:6a)
Remember God’s Nature never changes.

            Though God’s Nature never changes, He does change how he deals with mankind. God deals differerntly with mankind at various points of times within The Bible, we can say that God had different programs running, or another way of saying it God had one way to deal with mankind in one circumstance, but when circumstances changed, God changed how He dealt with mankind as well as God changing what God required out of mankind. Those changes are dispensational differences and today we are currently in the Dispensation of The Grace of God. (This change/program/dispensation is heavenly where all previous ones in The Bible were earthly)

Be aware that a Dispensation is not a time period. God deals with mankind or a group of mankind (Israel) a certain way and expects mankind or that group to respond to God, based on what God requires of them during the dispensation/program that they are under.

During this Dispensation we are saved by the Gospel of Grace which God gave to Paul to give to us.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” (I Corinthians 15:1-4)

            Paul's Gospel was given to him from Jesus Christ Himself. “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel.” (II Timothy 2:8) “For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 1:12)

I Corinthians 12:5-6 “And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.”

            You need to also know that Paul was to be our pattern to follow, and that Paul was the last Apostle that Christ Jesus spoke to, that affirms that Paul was given information after God choose to let Israel fall (Israel is currently set aside from its preeminence, Israel was once above all nations and will one day return to that prominence, after The Body of Christ is caught up).

I Timothy 1:16 “Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.”

I Corinthians 15:8 “And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.”

Romans 11:7-11 “What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. 9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. 11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.”

Dispensational Timeline




            "It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is spoken or written, but of whom and to whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after. "             Miles Coverdale (1488? - 1569)

            That quote from Miles Coverdale was written nearly 500 years ago, and yet too many people still think that dispensational thinking was invented recently and is inaccurate, because more people believe that the entire Bible is for them for doctrine, now God told us in The Bible that most people rebel and rejected God and His Word, as seen from reading Genesis to Revelation.

            Well, this timeline I will be posting is not a carbon copy of those I found and studied before, I will not be using Larkin, Darby, or Scofield or anyone else for that matter as authorities on this matter, I will be using Scripture (God’s Word = King James Bible) for defining the when and the how many dispensations, God revealed to us within His Word.
***NOTE*** This study does not address what God did prior to creating mankind.


            “And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.” (I Corinthians 12:5-6) “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15)

God's Word tells us that we need to know about properly breaking down what God has given to whom and when it was given.

I will show Scripture about how Prophecy and Mystery are different and needs to be separated from each other.
I will also post Scripture that shows The Focus that God placed on whom He was talking about, whether it was an Earthly Focus or a Heavenly Focus.

Genesis 1:28 “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

Genesis 9:1 “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.”


Genesis 12:7 “And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.”

Genesis 17:8 “And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”

Exodus 19:5-6 “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”

Ezekiel 37:21-23 “And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. 23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.”

Jeremiah 23:5-8 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. 7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; 8 But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.”

The Scripture verses I posted above from Genesis to Jeremiah clearly show God placing an Earthly Focus on man.
Adam was not Israel, and yet he had an Earthly Focus like Israel did.
God gave prophecy to Adam about something. When God reveals something, then it is not a mystery.

God revealed something to Adam and Eve of what will occur in the future about the seed of the serpent (Satan) and spoke of the seed of woman.
Jesus Christ (future seed of a woman) destroying Satan through what Jesus Christ will one day accomplish, to Adam this would be of future events
(this would be called prophecy)

Genesis 3:13-15 “And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. 14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

Adam had an Earthly Focus, with prophecy.
In Genesis 9 we again have an Earthly Focus, remember Noah was not Israel either, but as with Adam, they had the same focus of Earthly promises.


Genesis 11:4-9 “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”

            Now, let us look at Mankind after Noah, they wanted to go to heaven, BUT, God gave mankind an Earthly Focus. God stopped them and confounded the languages to scatter mankind upon the earth. God did not give mankind anything but an Earthly Focus at this time, and rebellion against God is never successful. God saw to it that mankind remained with an Earthly Focus.

In Genesis 12 we see Abram given a promise of land, an Earthly Focus.
In Genesis 17 we see God changing Abram’s name to Abraham, and we see God making a covenant with Abraham, and his seed (Abraham’s seed spoken of will one day be Israel, but in Genesis 17 Israel is not yet here, so this is more prophecy because it will one day happen)
In Genesis 17:8 we see Abraham having an Earthly Focus, and God promised his seed (Future Israel) will have an Earthly Focus as well.

            “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. 6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. 7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. 9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. 10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. 12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.” (Genesis 17:5-12)

Quick recap.

Adam = Earthly Focus with prophecy and promise
Noah = Earthly Focus with prophecy and promise
Genesis 11 = God’s punishment of mankind, for trying to rebel against God and attain heavenly focus when they were given an Earthly Focus.
Abram = Earthly Focus with prophecy and promise
Abraham and seed (Future Israel) = Earthly Focus with prophecy and promise

Lets us look at the nation of Israel, where the Old Testament starts.

Exodus 19:5-6 “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”

Understand that God did tell us when The Testaments start, as well as to whom it was given, and it was given to Israel.


Hebrews 9:16-20 “For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. 18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. 19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.”


Exodus 24:1-8 “And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off. 2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him. 3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do. 4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD. 6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient. 8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.”

God started the Old/First Testament with Israel, dedicated with blood spoken of in Hebrews 9 and Exodus 24.
A Covenant was made between God and Israel (not the whole world)
God used Moses to tell Israel what God said, and that included a Law, that ISRAEL (not the whole world) must follow.

Israel was under the (IF….Then) conditional covenant upon Israel’s obedience to God, for many things.
God promised an Earthly Focus with Israel, using prophecy many times, so we can see how Israel is tied to an Earthly Focus using prophecy and promises from God.
Scripture seen in Ezekiel and Jeremiah are examples of promises and prophecy of an Earthly Focus.

            “And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. 23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.” (Ezekiel 37:21-23) “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. 7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; 8 But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.” (Jeremiah 23:5-8)

Recap

With Scripture we showed:
(1) Prophecy and Earthly promises from Adam to Israel.
(2) Earthly Focus/Purpose from Adam to Israel.
(3) God gave Moses the Law to give to Israel (not the whole world).
(4) Israel was the beginning of the Old/First Testament in Exodus not Genesis 1:1.
(5) Israel was given The Law by Moses from God.


            God revealed information to mankind since the world began (since mankind existed) and that information was recorded from Genesis to Malachi.
Israel, which included Peter was able to be aware of that information due to God revealing it to mankind, but God kept some information secret, and that information was not revealed anywhere, so searching anywhere within Genesis to Malachi would not reveal the hidden Mystery.

            This hidden information is a mystery until revealed. God did in fact reveal some mystery to one man (Paul), and this mystery was revealed after Jesus Christ had died and had risen from the dead.

In Acts 7, we read that Israel, again rejected Jesus Christ as their Messiah, so God decided to start something different, and dealt with mankind with some thing new (a different Dispensation, where Israel is not preeminent, no longer above all nations as was the case in Exodus 19:5) and Acts 7 is where we can see the start of the diminishing of Israel (Romans 11).


God reveled to Paul secret (hidden mystery) things to tell the world, just as God once gave Moses the Law to Israel, God gave to Paul a different message of good news (Gospel) for the world.

God is the Author of The Bible, every word.

Genesis to Revelation is God’s Word, so the authority of the Book of Exodus, is the same as the authority of the Book of Romans.
God is that Authority.

God used Moses to tell Israel something in Exodus.
God used Paul to tell the whole world something in Romans through Philemon.
The something God told Israel, using Moses, was one thing, but God told the whole world, using Paul, something different.
Those differences of how God deals with mankind are Dispensational changes.

God gave to Paul information that was kept secret since the world began, but after Paul gave it to us, it belongs to us.

“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29)

Peter wrote of things to Israel about promises made to Israel in the past, seen in Acts chapter 3

Acts 3:19-21 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. 20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.”

Paul wrote to Christians (The Body of Christ) about information that was never heard before God gave it to Paul.

Romans 16:25-26 “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:”

God gave to Paul many mysteries, one is that someone who trusts the Gospel of Grace for Salvation is a new creature, a member of the body of Christ and the Body of Christ has a Heavenly Focus. “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:”
(Philippians 3:20)

            What does talking got to do with anything? This is a major reason why we need to study, conversation can mean more than talking as we know it today, it can mean a course of manners, behaviour, keeping company with others (Citizenship) sharing same beliefs, etc. Using the Webster’s 1828 dictionary will help you a great deal while studying God’s Word, for English meanings have changed some since 1611, and the 1828 Webster’s dictionary is much better than using most of today’s dictionaries.

            “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” (Ephesians 1:1-3)

God gave to Paul information that is contrary to what God gave to Peter and Israel.
God gave to Peter information that was spoken since the world began. {Acts 3:21}

God gave to Paul information that was kept secret since the world began. {Romans 16:25}
God gave to Peter different information (good news/Gospel) from what God gave to Paul, that difference = A Dispensational change.


Recap


God inserted, by pausing one Dispensation with another Dispensation.
God was dealing with Israel with promises and prophecy with an Earthly Focus.
God started another Dispensation with a Heavenly Focus, which was a Mystery.
God was dealing with Israel with Old/First Testament.
God is dealing today with no Testaments, for we are the Mystery, The Body of Christ.
Israel has an Earthly Focus. God is not dealing with Israel today (Romans 11)
The Body of Christ has a Heavenly Focus.

God had Paul write:

“What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. 9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. 11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. 12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?” (Romans 11:7-12)

“And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. 19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. 21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:17-26)

Galatians 3 makes it very clear. The Body of Christ today is not under the Law, but under faith (Grace).

            “If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:” (Ephesians 3:2-9) “And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.” (I Corinthians 12:5-6)

            If you have never heard the question in Ephesians 3:2, then today is a good day for you, for you need to know that God wrote The entire Bible, including what Paul wrote, so by ignoring Paul, you ignore God and God’s Will for us today. If you do not know the question, how can you know the answer.

You cannot mix the Two, Israel with works, and today (Body of Christ) under Grace.

Romans 11:6 “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.”

God will return to the Dispensation concerning Israel, after this current Dispensation of Grace is completed.

I Thessalonians 4:17 “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

God will return to the dealing with Israel and the Earthly Focus with the Tribulation spoken of in Old Testament books.
The Tribulation belongs to Israel, as much as the Law does.

Jeremiah 30:4-7 “And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. 5 For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. 6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? 7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.”

After the Tribulation is completed, God will then start a Kingdom to which He promised Israel, and that Kingdom will last 1000 years. This Kingdom has an Earthly Focus, and Israel is again above all nations (Israel is preeminent again, see Exodus 19:5).


Matthew 25:34 “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:”


Revelation 20:2-3 “And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”

Lastly, God has a Dispensation that will unite both which are in heaven and which are on earth in Christ.

“Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:”
(Ephesians 1:9-10)

My Dispensational Timeline is as follows:


(1) Adam to Moses = Earthly Focus with promises and prophecy.
Israel is not here yet, mankind not under Law of Works.


(2a) Moses to The Fall of Israel = Earthly Focus with promises and prophecy.
Exodus 19 = Israel under the Old/First Testament, and Israel is under the Law of Works.
      *****NOTE***** Fall of Israel started in Acts 7… the diminishing

      *****NOTE***** The last Week of Daniel ( Daniel 9:24-26), which started already (see Acts 2 wtih Joel 2 and Revelation 6) will continue and finish after The Body of Christ is Caught up. (I Thessalonians 4:17)
This Dispensation was spoken of since the world began. (Acts 3:19-21)


(3) Paul’s Revelation from God to being Caught up (Rapture) = Heavenly Focus, and was kept secret, A Mystery, from all prior to God giving it to Paul to give to us.
We are under Grace, not Law of Works
This Dispensation of Grace was kept secret since the world began. (Romans 16:25-26)


(2b) Jacob's Trouble (The Tribulation) is resumed, and Israel's program is reinstated. Earthly Focus
The Tribulation (Last week of 70 spoken of in Daniel chapter 9) was spoken of since the world began.


(4) Kingdom (1000 years) = Earthly Focus, with Law, and Israel is again above all other people on Earth.
This Kingdom Dispensation was spoken of since the world began. (Acts 3:19-21)
Israel is under the New/Second Testament, with a better/changed priesthood.


(5) Dispensation of the Fulness of times = When God places both, that which is in Heaven and in Earth, in Christ Jesus.
This Focus = Gathered together in One, Christ Jesus. Both Earthly and Heavenly.


When God deals with Israel and The New Testament during The Kingdom, God changes the priesthood as well as the Law.
God changes how He deals with mankind within the Earthly Focus, this too would be a Dispensational Change.

Hebrews 7:12 “For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.”


I pray that you can now understand that God wrote of more than one thing in The Bible, and those things need to be rightly divided.




“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15)

            "It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is spoken or written, but of whom and to whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after. "             Miles Coverdale (1488? - 1569)

Dispensational Differences



           Many confusions and misunderstandings of God's Word stems from not properly dividing God's Word.
II Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

            It is important to know that if something is not the same, THEN it is different. There are too many people that are not aware of or understand the differences that are within The Bible. Without properly dividing as God's tells us to (II Timothy 2:15), confusion and misunderstanding is expected within the church (The Body of Christ), and outright unbelief by some of those outside when confronted by what appears to be conflicts within God's Word. It is our duty to study and search out truths of God's Word, so whenever faced with questions we are able to answer those questions promptly and accurately accordingly to God's Word.

            I will only be going over real quickly some of the differences in this study, to show how God has divisions that need to be separated. You need to always ask who is writing and to whom, whenever faced with verses of scripture, for example when Moses wrote the first five books of The Bible to the nation of Israel (the Jews) and Paul the Apostle wrote Romans through Philemon for the Gentiles.

Meat (food we can eat)? What does The Bible say we can eat for meat?

Genesis 1:29-30 “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.”
So here in the beginning All creatures, including us (humans) were vegetarians.

Genesis 9:1-3 “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. 3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.”

After the Flood God now tells mankind the new rules for eating (for meat) that we can now eat any creature along with the green herbs that was stated in
Genesis 1:29-30. After the flood creatures stopped being vegetarians as well, and only one thing was not allowed to be eaten.
Genesis 9:4 “But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.”

Leviticus 11 “And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. 3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. 5 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. 7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. 8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you. 9 These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you: 11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcases in abomination.12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.13 And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;15 Every raven after his kind; 16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind, 17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl, 18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle, 19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. 20 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you. 21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth; 22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.23 But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even. 25 And whosoever beareth ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even. 26 The carcases of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even. 28 And he that beareth the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you. 29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even. 32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed. 33 And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it. 34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean. 35 And every thing whereupon any part of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean and shall be unclean unto you. 36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcase shall be unclean. 37 And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean. 38 But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you. 39 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even. 40 And he that eateth of the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcase of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.41 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten. 42 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination. 43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby. 44 For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 45 For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. 46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that creepeth upon the earth: 47 To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.”
Here Moses told the nation of Israel what God permits and what God does not permit in regards to eating (meat)
This is a part of the Law that was given to Israel (The Jews) and again God is making a difference in allowed eating habits.

I Timothy 4:4-5 “For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”
Here God is using Paul to write to the Church (Body of Christ) under Grace NOT law, that all food is now permissible when one says grace prior to eating.

It is very clear that God has dealt with us in regard to eating (meat) differently throughout The Bible.

It is not possible to grow in understanding until we are able to ascertain what doctrines go in what Dispensation, God’s Nature never changes but God does indeed deal with us differently when circumstances change. “And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.” (I Corinthians 12:5-6)



Another quick example of not properly dividing is in the different Gospels, YES there are more than one and you cannot mix them.

Remember in the Old Testament when Moses was given The Law to be given to the Jews (Israel), well that is how the Gospel of the Kingdom was preached, to the JEWS ONLY.
Matthew 3:1-2 “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Matthew 4:17, 23 “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.”

Matthew 9:35 “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.”

Matthew 10:5-7 “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

These verses are very Clear, Jesus Christ’s Earthly ministry was to the Jews, and that Gospel to Israel was the Kingdom Gospel.
Romans 15:8 “Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:”

Galatians 2:7 “But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;”

            See here Paul makes it clear when he wrote to the churches at Galatia that The Gospel of Grace (He referred to it here as the gospel of the uncircumcision, which was committed to him, Paul) and the Gospel of the Kingdom (referred to here as the gospel of the circumcision, because of the covenant to Abraham that all his family (Jews) to be circumcised) was committed to Peter.

Genesis 17:10-11 “This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.”

Now the Gospel of Grace which all today are saved by and the Dispensation to which we all today are under is told to us through Paul's writings, and Paul spoke of them that tried to mix, or change the Gospel to something other that what God gave to Paul.

Galatians 1:6-9 “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

II Timothy 2:8 “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:”

I Timothy 1:11 “According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.”

Ephesians 3:3-5 “How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;”

II Corinthians 11:1-4 “Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. 2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”

Romans 16:25-26 “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:”

            Some think that people got saved the same way throughout The Bible, but Romans 16:25 makes it clear that The Gospel of Grace was kept secret and it was given to Paul (The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ for Salvation) and was not known to us until Paul taught it. We are under Grace NOT Law.

            “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:22-26) “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace”
(Romans 6:14)

Website Summary



The Dispensation of Grace was given to Paul



            “If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,” (Ephesians 3:2-3)

            God’s Word has a lot of information, and Since God is The Author of all of it, He is aware that it needs to be Rightly Divided, so we should obey what God told us to do, and that includes where God gave to us a pattern to follow. That pattern was God given, so when you follow the pattern, you are following God. God gave to Paul the Gospel of Grace which is the only way your soul is saved during this Dispensation of Grace, and God made Paul the pattern that He would have us to follow.

I Timothy 1:16 “Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.”

Ephesians 1:9-10 “Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:”

Galatians 1:1 “Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)”

Romans 16:25-26 “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:”

Colossians 1:25 “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;”

Galatians 1:6-12 “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Galatians 2:7 “But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;”

            See here Paul makes it clear when he wrote to the churches at Galatia that The Gospel of Grace (He referred to it here as the Gospel of the uncircumcision, which was committed to him, Paul) and the Gospel of the Kingdom (referred to here as the Gospel of the circumcision, because of the covenant to Abraham that all his family (Future Israel) to be circumcised) was committed to Peter.

Genesis 17:10-11 “This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.”

It was Paul and not Peter that God spoke of in I and II Timothy.

II Timothy 2:8 “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:”
I Timothy 1:11 “According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.”

Revelation was Given to Paul



            Revelation, what does that word imply or mean? It is something that was hidden, NOT KNOWN until the time something is unveiled or uncovered by whom ever did the hiding or the covering. In this instance God was The One that hid something, and If God wanted something hid, then you can bet it was unknown until He was ready for us to know it, and it was only to be revealed when God was ready for us to understand. God does that with understanding of His Word in general, so when a new believer starts to read and study God’s Word that individual does not fully comprehend all that they read the first time around, for it usually takes many readings and prayer to God for the understanding of what scripture means, and how it is applied, for if you remember God keeps His Precious Word and gives it to us (Believers in God {THE TRIUNE GODHEAD}) who trusted The Gospel of Grace for our Salvation and God keeps most of His Word's understandings out of the hands of unbelievers.

Deuteronomy 29:29 “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

God kept alot of His Word from non-believers, and wanted those that accept Him (God) to study His Word and Meditate on it daily to learn all that God would have us to know, this truth about God keeping God’s Word from non-believers existed in both this current dispensation as well as the previous one dealing with Israel under The Law.

Matthew 13:10,13,35 “And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.”

Matthew 7:6 “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”

I Corinthians 2:10-14 “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

            Now, we must be aware of what was hidden and when, and at what time it has been revealed and to whom. I will be showing scripture that shows that some things were hidden during the Earthly Ministry of Jesus Christ, some things were hidden from Israel that even the 12 disciples (Including Peter) did not know.

Luke 18:31-34 “Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. 32 For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: 33 And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again. 34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.”

John 20:1-9 “The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, 7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. 9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.”

Matthew 16:21-23 “From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. 22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. 23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”

            In Matthew 16, Jesus Christ Himself rebuked Peter for saying that which is against God's Will and God's Word. Peter did not understand what we call our Gospel {The Gospel of Grace} of where Jesus Christ Died for Our Sins and Arose three days later to justify us before God, for it was Hidden from all mankind at this time, but Peter even without understanding this, tried to say something contrary to God's Will and God (Jesus Christ) Rebuked Peter for that.

            More and more I get too many not understanding and not willing to see what God’s Word tells us about this particular topic. You need to decide to whom has The Authority of what is right from wrong concerning Bible Doctrines, God is the only Authority and His Will is seen through His Word (The King James Bible) and those who places their local church pastor, bible teacher, or familiy member as their authority should be warned. The Gospel is too important to not understand fully and completely. Jesus Christ (a Redeemer/a King) was the fulfillment of Jewish Prophecy that was promised to The Nation of Israel, and that King was promised to save them from their enemies and place Israel into a place of Glory that was not even seen under King David or King Solomon. Scripture show us why Jesus Christ came as well as to whom He was sent to.

Romans 15:8 “Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:”

Galatians 4:4-5 “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”

Was Jesus Christ a minister to the Gentiles? …………… NO, Jesus Christ was a minister to the JEWS!!!! (The Circumcision) to confirm the promises made unto the fathers. (the fathers = Israel, the Jews)

            “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” (Luke 1:30-33) “Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son. 58 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her. 59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father. 60 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John. 61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name. 62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. 63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all. 64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God. 65 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea. 66 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him. 67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, 69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; 70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: 71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; 72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; 73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham, 74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,” (Luke 1:57-74) “And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb. 22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; 23 (As it is written in the law of the LORD, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) 24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons. 25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. 26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,” (Luke 2:21-27)

John 1:45 “Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

            Philip, one of the twelve tells Nathanael that they found the one whom Moses and the prophets wrote about. Remember all Old Testament prophets wrote concerning Israel and were under the Law. John the Baptist as well as Jesus Christ was under that same Law that God gave to Moses back in Exodus. Jesus Christ preached to the Jews under law, and never in His Earthly Ministry removed the Law.

Matthew 8:2-4 “And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.”

What did Jesus Christ say and tell His disciples to do?

Mark 1:14-15 “Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”

What gospel did Jesus Christ mean? It was not the life, death, burial, and resurrection three days later that Paul taught, because Jesus Christ did not Die yet, nor did Jesus Christ Teach it in His Earthly Ministry.

Matthew 10:5-7 “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

            It is clear that Jesus Christ's Earthly Ministry was to the The Jews (Israel) and the Gospel that was taught by Peter and the others was not the One that Paul taught. The Gospel we are saved by is The Gospel of Grace, but Peter taught the Gospel of the Kingdom, the Kingdom Gospel is not the same as the Grace Gospel, in fact they are far different and they were directed to different groups (One group had an Earthly focus, the other has a Heavenly focus). The Kingdom Gospel was to Israel under Law, and The Grace Gospel is to the Gentiles (Any Jew may trust The Gospel of Grace for Salvation today, but they are not part of the program spoken of in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and they are not under The Law).

            Galatians 4:5 shows what God was going to do through Israel, had Israel accepted Jesus Christ as their King, but we all know that their last chance to accept Jesus Christ as King was in Acts 7. Israel rejected their King and God decided to place the entire Jewish Dispensation (Which includes the Age of Law and the Kingdom Gospel) on Hold and go to the Gentiles directly using Paul and The Gospel of Grace (That Jesus Christ Died for us, and Arose three days later to justify us). I am posting scripture that shows the conditional side of the promises that God made with Israel, and unfortunately though God is Always true to His Word, we (Humans) have tendencies to fail and fall short of what we promise to do.

Exodus 19:5-6 “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”

            ”The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.” (Isaiah 1:1) “And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:13-14) “Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: 6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.” (Isaiah 42:5-7) ”And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. 7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee. 8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;” (Isaiah 49:6-8)

            God wanted Israel to be a light unto the Gentiles to show them of The One True God, but when Israel rejected Him, their King, God changed the way He dealt with the world by changing the method God dealt with mankind and with that change what God required out of mankind changed as well. God’s operating method/program changed to a new Dispensation (God dispensing different requirements of mankind due to the different way God is now operating with mankind) and God reached out to the Gentile World (The Jews today are saved the same way we are, under the Gospel of Grace) directly and not through the Priests of The Nation of Israel.

One day when The King (Jesus Christ) sits on the Throne of David and all of Israel will be cleansed from their iniquity, Israel then will fulfill the promise from God about how Israel will be a Kingdom of Priests.

Again where did Peter and the Twelve go?

Galatians 2:9 “And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.”

James (This is Jesus Christ's half brother, not the James who was one of the 12) who is leader of the Jewish Church, and Cephas (who is Peter) “And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.” (John 1:42) and John stated they would go unto the circumcision, and Paul and Barnabas (who working with Paul) would go unto the heathen. {heathen is a not so nice name for us Gentiles/ Everyone who is not Jewish}

            “And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. 2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him, 3 Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them. 4 But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying, 5 I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me: 6 Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 7 And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat. 8 But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth. 9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. 10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven. 11 And, behold, immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me. 12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house: 13 And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; 14 Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved. 15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. 19 Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only.” (Acts 11:1-19)

Where did Peter go? ….. after reading Acts 11:19 it was clear that Peter and those (which are Jewish Kingdom Believers persecuted in Acts 8:1) scattered abroad went only to the Jews, so even with Peter's vision that God will be and started to deal with Gentiles was not enough for them to go anywhere but to who? THE JEWS ONLY. Remember God paused the program where God was going to have the whole world go through Israel to get to Him.

What did Peter teach? What did John teach?

Acts 2:36-38 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. 37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

            Peter was speaking to Israel in Acts 2, and taught a Gospel other than Our Gospel of Grace, There is NO Jesus Christ Died for your sins, NO Burial of Jesus Christ, and most importantly NO Resurrection from the Dead three days later to justify you before God. If you can find Our Gospel of Grace in Acts 2, then you wrote it in yourself, for it is not there.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

I John 4:15 “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.”

I John 5:1 “Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.”

            No where in John or I John can you find The Life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for your justification, in fact John stated in I John 4:15 and
I John 5:1 something very different than what our Gospel of Grace tells us. It is important to rightly divide God’s Word and to read the entire Bible for God purposely dealt with us (mankind) differently at different times and told us to study His Word to be able to properly Divide it according to how God dealt with us at sundry (several; divers:more than one or two) times. Remember God hid the understanding of His Death, Burial, and Resurrection from the twelve.


Revelation was Given to Paul


Ephesians 3:5-9 “Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: 7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. 8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; 9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ

            Paul the writer of Ephesians, clearly states that the mystery to which he teaches (which Includes Our Gospel of Grace and other doctrines given to us through Paul) were hid in God until God Revealed them to Paul.

Galatians 2:7 “But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;”

            Two Gospels spoken of in Galatians chapter two, but which one is for us gentiles? Paul said The Gospel he taught was to us (The Gentiles) and Peter taught the Gospel to the Jews, and those Gospels are different.

So which one taught the Life, Death, Burial, and Resurrection three days later for justification? ……. The answer is Paul did and God confirmed it with
II Timothy 2:8 and Romans 16:25-26.

            “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:” (II Timothy 2:8) “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:” (Romans 16:25-26)


Hard to Understand



            At the end of Peter's Life, he wrote to those Jews he had a ministry with that God used Paul and that Paul taught that which is hard to understand, because all that God revealed to Paul to tell the Gentile World is contrary to how God had dealt with Israel (under Law, with Gentiles having to go through Them {Israel} and become Jewish in practice) and Peter confirmed that what Paul wrote (The Epistles {Romans through Philemon}) was indeed scripture.

II Peter 3:15-16 “And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.”

II Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Some Q & A on Rightly Dividing



            This entire website dedicates itself to Glorying God, Rightly Divided, so I have compiled some questions and answers that will hopefully assist you and allow you to witness to others of the proper understanding of God’s Word Rightly Divided.

(1) What evidence is there that the 12 (including Peter) did not preach The Gospel we are under?
Luke 18:31-34 “Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. 32 For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: 33 And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again. 34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.”

John 20:1-9 “The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, 7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. 9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.”


(2) The 12 preached to whom? ……. and which Gospel did they preach?
Matthew 10:5-6 “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Matthew 10:7 “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”


(3) Whom was the Kingdom promised to?
Isaiah 9:6-7 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

Luke 1:31-33 “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

Acts 1:6 “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?”
The Kingdom was to Israel, and Luke chapter 1 and Acts chapter 1 both make this clear, it was to Israel, not to the gentiles.

Did you notice the word restore ---------- This implies that Israel had a Kingdom once before, but in Acts chapter 1 they were asking about the promised Kingdom. (A better Kingdom with The Messiah sitting as King of Israel, and that promised Kingdom is still in their future!)

(4) Was there anything needed prior for The Kingdom to begin?
Hosea 5:15 to Hosea 6:2 “I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early. 1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.”
Hosea 5:15 is the reason why Israel must confess their sins in The Kingdom Gospel.

Malachi 3:1-6 “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. 2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: 3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. 4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years. 5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts. 6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”


(5) John the Baptist preached what?
Matthew 3:1-2 “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Matthew 3:6, 11 “And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:”


(6) Jesus Christ’s Earthly ministry was to whom?
Romans 15:8 “Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:”
Galatians 4:4 “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,”

Luke 1:31-33 “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

In Luke 1:68 and Luke 1:73 pay attention to what is written: (1) of Israel (2) redeemed his people and (3) to our father Abraham
Luke makes it very clear …. Lord God of Israel and redeemed his people (Israel’s people) it was to Israel and not to the entire world. Remember Jesus was Jewish so His people are Jewish.

Luke 1:67-68, 73 “And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, 73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,”


(7) Israel was to one day be what?
Exodus 19:6 “And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”
Isaiah 42:6-7 “I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.”


(8) Priests of Israel must do what?
Exodus 28:1 “And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.”
Exodus 28: was to show you that Aaron was indeed called to be a priest of Israel

Exodus 29:4 “And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water.”

Exodus 30:19-20 “For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat: 20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD:”

Leviticus 8:6 “And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water”

Did you know that Jesus Christ was also a priest of Israel?
Hebrews 4:14 “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession”

Hebrews 6:20 “Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.”

Hebrews 7:14-27 “For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. 15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, 16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. 17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. 18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. 19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. 20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest: 21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) 22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. 23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: 24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. 26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”


(9) How did John the Baptist prepare the way?
John 1:29-34 “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. 32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.”

Matthew 3:1-2 “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”


(10) Did Peter preach the Gospel of The Kingdom to the gentiles?
Acts 2:16-22 “But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:”

Peter in Acts 2:16 was referring to what Joel wrote to Israel in Joel chapter 2, note also Acts 2:22
Joel 2:27-31 “And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. 28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. 30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.”

Acts 2:5,14,22 “And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:”

Acts 2:30 “Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;”

Acts 2:36-38 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. 37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

            Peter was told by God to deal with Cornelius/a gentile (an exception just as in The Old Testament where gentiles were made right with God by joining Israel) this exception in Acts chapter 10 (Cornelius was told The Kingdom Gospel, for Peter did not know The Gospel of The Grace of God), was not to be the rule of Peter's ministry.
            In Acts 11 it makes it clear that Peter and the other 11 were still not going to the gentiles. Peter and the others responsible for preaching The Kingdom Gospel did not go to the whole world (gentiles as a rule, due to The Kingdom never arrived on Earth) because God placed Israel aside and Peter knew this in Acts 15, when Peter cancelled the commission where they were to go to the gentiles. In Acts chapter 15, Peter cancelled this commission and is also seen in Galatians 2:7-9. It is very clear in Galatians chapter 2 that Peter went to Israel (The Jews) and Paul was to go to the gentiles, and they went with different Gospels.

Acts 11:1-19 “And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. 2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him, 3 Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them. 4 But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying, 5 I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me: 6 Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 7 And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat. 8 But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth. 9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. 10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven. 11 And, behold, immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me. 12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house: 13 And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; 14 Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved. 15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. 19 Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only.”

(11) Was there more than one type of information being taught by Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry?

            Yes, and it is needful to know that Jesus Christ taught (1) Kingdom information and (2) Tribulation information in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John prior to His death at Calvary. When you read about peace on Earth that is referring to Kingdom information, when you read about sell what you have and buy a sword, well that is different and is referring to Tribulation information that Peter and others that will be going through the Tribulation will need to know about.

Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”

Luke 22:35-38 “And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. 36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. 37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. 38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.”

(12) Was there more than one commission in the Bible?

            Yes, we will be looking at just a few.
One Commission was given to Peter and the 12 in Matthew 10 where Jesus Christ tells them to go only to Israel preaching the Gospel of The Kingdom.

Matthew 10:5-7 “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

A second Commission is when Jesus Christ (after His Death, Burial, and Resurrection) told Peter and the others information what to do during the Tribulation.
The Tribulation did not happen yet.

            *** NOTE *** Peter and the others did not know that the Tribulation would be delayed, and Israel would fall at this time, so If Israel had accepted Jesus Christ as The Messiah {Acts 7 was Israel's Last Rejection of Jesus has their Messiah} they would need to know this information for they would have gone through the Last Week of Daniel and Revelation chapter 8 shows why they would need to be able to drink any deadly thing.

Mark 16:15-18 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

Yet a third Commission is a Kingdom Commission, when Jesus Christ would reign as King.
This did not happen yet either.
Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

            Just from the examples above: the second and third commissions I posted were not yet fulfilled. The Reason is simple, God set Israel aside after Israel's Last Rejection of Him in Acts 7, but God will after this current Dispensation is completed (I Thessalonians 4:17) pick up again with Israel in The Tribulation and both (the 2nd & 3rd commissions I spoke of) will take place, Tribulation Commission first, and then followed up with the Kingdom Commission.
***NOTE***

Peter never went to anyone with The Gospel of Grace, Peter taught the Kingdom Gospel (which includes following the Law, and water baptism).

The Chosen People of God



            God is dealing with everyone today, the Jews and Gentiles alike during this Dispensation of The Grace of God, but for most of the Bible God dealt with Israel/the Jews. God choose the Jews to witness and to teach the world of the one, true God, but when the Jews failed to do so and rejected the Christ who was promised to them, God started a new Dispensation (to which we are now under {The Dispensation of Grace}).

            “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. 4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. 5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. 6 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. 7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.” (Genesis 12:1-7) “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. 2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. 3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, 4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. 5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. 6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. 7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. 19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.” (Genesis 17:1-8,19) “And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.” (Genesis 21:12)

            Some would say that God used the seed of Ishmael and the religion that spawned from that seed (Islam), but here it is clear that God was calling upon the seed of Abraham in Isaac, not Ishmael.

Genesis 22:15-18 “And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: 17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; 18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”

            How are all nations blessed through the seed? --- Because Jesus Christ came from the seed of Isaac, and the world is saved through Jesus Christ.

Matthew 1:1-16 “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; 3And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; 4And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; 5And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 6And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; 7And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; 8And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias; 9And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias; 10And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias; 11And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: 12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; 13And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 14And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 15And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.”

            “And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. 24 and when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. 26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them. 27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents. 28 And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob. 29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint: 30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. 31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. 32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? 33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.” (Genesis 25:23-33) “And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting. 31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son's venison, that thy soul may bless me. 32 And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau. 33 And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed. 34 And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father. 35 And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy blessing. 36 And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me? 37 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?” (Genesis 27:30-37)

            Jacob has now taken Isaac's blessing from his older brother Esau, so he has now both Esau's birthright and blessing. This is important since the promise of God is with Jacob and not with Esau.

Genesis 35:10-12 “And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. 11 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; 12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.”

            Here God proclaims that Jacob indeed has the promise that was given to Abraham, God then changed Jacob's name to Israel and gave the land that was promised to Abraham (Genesis 12:5-7) to the seed of Israel.

Exodus 19:3-6 “And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”

            “For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.” (Deuteronomy 7:6) “For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.” (Deuteronomy 14:2)

            So it is clear that God choose Abraham and his seed and gave to them land and promises (Earthly Focus/Purpose). One of the promises is being blessed of all nations through his seed, Jesus Christ. God also choose the Jews to be a Holy people and a Kingdom of Priests to spread the Word of God to the world, but the Jews rebelled and rejected Jesus as their promised Messiah, and God has punished them and for the moment set them aside temporarily, but they are still chosen and God will pick up with them again and deal with mankind through them after The Body of Christ (those today who are saved) are Caught up (what many call “The Rapture” – seen in I Thessalonians 4:17).
            No one should judge the Jews for rejecting God (Jesus Christ as their Messiah) for every Dispensation has rebelled and failed God to a certain degree. When “The Rapture” comes it is because the Body of Christ is complete and God will return to dealing with Israel at the exact moment God paused their Dispensation during the beginning of The Last Week of Daniel (Daniel chapter 9). God loves us so much that even though mankind may fail Him or even rebel against Him, God still loves us and is patient to allow mankind many chances to accept God on His Terms, and for today that is through The Gospe of Grace where Jesus Christ died for our sins and was buried and arose on the third day to justify us before Almighty God ( I Corinthians 15:1-4). So spread the Gospel and witness to all that you know about Jesus Christ and the free Gift that is available to all that want it.



This is another chance God has given to you, how many more will you have? Trust the Gospel and witness to others so they too can have what God is offering freely at no cost, it is indeed a Gift above all gifts.

The Kingdom



            The Kingdom spoken of in Scripture, has components and it was promised to a group of people, not to everyone. It was prophesied that a forerunner or messenger would arrive first. That turned out to be John The Baptist. Ok, lets begin, to whom was the Kingdom promised to? This is one is easy since the Old Testament is filled with the prophecies that Israel is promised a future Kingdom, so what are some of the components of that Kingdom, that God promised to Israel? I will list some of the components then show Scripture that support my statements that The Kingdom is for Israel, and not promised to the gentile world as some would like to think.

                   (1) A King to rule over it, Of the House of David (Jesus Christ is that future King)
                   (2) Land ----- so this Kingdom is real (Earthly Focus) and not just spiritual
                   (3) Cleansing / Israel no longer filled with iniquity (no longer defiled)
                   (4) One nation, no longer two (Israel will again be whole serving God)
                   (5) Forever
                   (6) Enemy Free / at peace


Matthew 3:1-2 “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Matthew 6:9-13 “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

            Jesus gave them the way to pray, did you notice that it spoke of thy (God’s) Kingdom come (The Kingdom was not here yet) and later it spoke of forgiveness, why? Because it was a component of The Kingdom Gospel for Israel must confess their sins before God comes to establish The Kingdom.

Hosea 5:15 to Hosea 6:1-2 “I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early. 1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.”

II Samuel 7:8-16 “Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: 9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. 10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime, 11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house. 12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. 14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: 15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. 16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.”

Luke 1:31-33 “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

Acts 1:6 “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore againthe kingdom to Israel ?”

Micah 4:1-3 “But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”

Micah 5:2, 9 “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. 9 Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.”

Amos 9:14-15 “And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. 15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.”

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

Revelation 11:15 “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.”

Ezekiel 37:21-23 “And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. 23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.”

Isaiah 9:6-7 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

Jeremiah 23:5-8 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. 7 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; 8 But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.”

Zephaniah 3:13 “The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.”

Zechariah 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”

            In Matthew chapter 21 Jesus Christ fulfils the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9

Matthew 21:1-11 “And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, 2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. 3 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. 4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, 5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. 6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, 7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. 8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. 9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. 10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? 11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.”


            Another component is acknowledging Jesus is Christ, The Son of God.

John 1:29-34 “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. 32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.”

Matthew 16:16 “And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

John 11:25-27 “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.”

Jesus Christ's Earthly Ministry was to the Nation of Israel, the Jew


            The Jews are descendents of Israel (Israel was Jacob until God renamed him Israel and Jacob/Israel was the son of Isaac which was the son of Abraham). Jacob had 12 sons and the descendents of those 12 sons are the Jewish people.

*** Note *** The descendents of those 12 sons are part of the tribe of that particular son of Israel/Jacob, for example a descendent of Reuben was part of The Tribe of Reuben.

            Now you can be Jewish in religion to which you need not be Jewish of descent. Gentiles are everyone else not born of Jewish parents.

Romans 15:8 “Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:”

            Jesus (The Redeemer and The King) was promised to The Nation of Israel. Jesus was The Messiah and Jesus Christ and His Earthly Ministry was the prelude {The Preparation if you will to get The Nation of Israel ready for that Kingdom promised to Israel and remember Jesus Christ is the King for that promised (still in the future) Kingdom}. Way back in Exodus God selected Abraham and his seed (Israel) to be a Nation of Priests that would one day show the rest of the world of the One True God. Water Baptism was a part of The Kingdom Gospel and since all of Israel was to one day be priests to the whole world, all of those who heard the Kingdom Gospel needed to be ceremonial washed (Water Baptized). Do not forget that The Kingdom Gospel was directed to Israel in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Please read the next topic (Jesus Christ and Water) for more on why water baptism was needed.

Isaiah 7:13-14 “And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

            The House of David held the throne of Judah at the time Isaiah spoke this prophecy and The house of David was Jewish and this Prophecy was given unto them, The Jewish Nation.

            “Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.” (Isaiah 44:6) “I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” (Daniel 7:13-14) “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” (Micah 5:2) “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” (Luke 1:30-33)

            The Old Testament Prophecy was directed to Whom? ………… The answer = The Nation of Israel, not to the Gentile World. The Books: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were in line with the Old Testament Prophecies directed to The Nation of Israel. Jesus is The Messiah, which means Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of Old Testament Prophecy, granted Israel rejectes Jesus as The Christ, but the fact remains that Jesus is The Christ, and Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John tells us of Old Testament information that was both earlier prophesied and later fulfilled.

***** Quick Note ***** Today we are in The Dispensation of Grace, which was a mystery to everyone, and nothing that happens in this Dispensation could be found by searching the Scriptures. Nothing is being fulfilled today. 1948 was just a year and what happened to Israel in 1948 was not fulfilling anything that was prophesied in Old Testament books, granted God can use what occurred in 1948 as well as anything He chooses, but God is not fulfilling any prophecy today.
“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” (II Corinthians 5:7)

            Gentiles came through the Nation of Israel to get to God during this time of Jesus Christ’s Earthly Ministry, because that is how God set it up with Israel being above all people (Exodus 19:5). God (Jesus Christ) came to The Earth manifest in the Flesh to prepare Israel for the Kingdom promised to Israel and to prepare the Nation of Israel to become the priests as God intended when God separated Abram, who God later renamed Abraham to bring the rest of the world to Him (The One True God).

            “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:1-2) “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.” (Matthew 4:17, 23) “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.” (Matthew 9:35) “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 10:5-7) “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” (Matthew 15:24) “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” (Matthew 24:14)


            Now after the Fall of Samaria the capital of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, there are some that think that only two of the twelve tribes survived. Let us go to scripture to see what God wrote on this issue.

Acts 2:36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.”

            Peter was speaking to Jews in Acts chapter Two (in the first century A.D.) to the whole house (12 Tribes) of Israel, so all 12 tribes were present then. John wrote to us of Prophecy that will occur during the Tribulation (The Last Week of seventy spoken of in Daniel chapter 9) and The Prophet Ezekiel shows us prophecy that is not yet fulfilled, but will be when Jesus Christ returns and sets up the 1000 year Kingdom and all 12 tribes are present and will be united again as One Nation during this Kingdom on Earth (Earthly Focus/Purpose).

            “Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.” (Ezekiel 37:11) “And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.” (Ezekiel 37:22) “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” (Revelation 7:4)

Jesus Christ and Water



            You ever hear I do not follow Paul ………. I follow Jesus Christ! Well let us take that statement to it’s logical conclusion. Jesus Christ is God, so since God is The Author of The Bible, then Jesus Christ is the Author of The Bible.
Since we follow Jesus Christ:
(1) It is written in Genesis chapter 2 that we can live in The Garden of Eden and do whatever we want providing we do not eat of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil
(2) We are to build an ark
(3) We are to follow the Mosaic Law in it’s entirety (All 600+ laws) ...................................................... I hope you have made your animal sacrifices lately!

            If you do not properly divide what God has written to Israel from what God wrote to The Body of Christ, you can believe many false things, like trying to follow the Law of Moses, animal sacrifice would be required if you were under the Mosaic Law, you would need Levite priests to perfom those animal sacrifices for you in The Temple which does not exist today. If you thought you were under The Mosaic Law (which is faith with works that required animal sacrifices) given to Israel you would be guilty as well as lost (not saved), so I hope you all can realize how important it is to rightly divide God’s Word.

            God commanded us to do just that, to rightly divide, and guess what, He had Paul write it to us, so that must mean God wants us to follow what Paul writes, and That also means to follow Jesus Christ, we must follow Paul’s Epistles. God will one day return to His dealing with Israel, but that will not occur until after The Body of Christ is caught up (what many call “The Rapture” I Thessalonians 4:17).

Let us return to the topic on Jesus Christ and Water, and to understand this we must do as God says and Rightly Divide.

I Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”

How do we not get confused by God’s Word? ….. Answer = by properly understanding the next two verses in II Timothy.

            “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2:15)
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (II Timothy 3:16)


            Today we must follow Paul to follow Jesus Christ. God has placed Israel on hold, for the nation of Israel rejected The Kingdom Gospel and Jesus Christ as their King. God then changed how He was dealing with mankind without giving Israel any prominence (today Israel is not above all people). God gave Paul a different Gospel with a different focus (Heavenly not Earthly) to preach unto the world and that new focus and that new Gospel must be rightly divided from God’s instructions to Israel. Paul was given his knowledge after Jesus Christ was rejected by Israel, that makes what Jesus Christ taught Paul to be a newer revelation than that which Jesus Christ taught to Peter and the 12. Paul made it clear in the following verses that Jesus Christ’s Earthly ministry was to Israel as well as showing us why Jesus Christ was water baptized.

            Remember God is the Author of The Entire Bible, including what Paul wrote in his 13 epistles (Romans through Philemon)

Galatians 1:1,11-12 “Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) 11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

“But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,” (Galatians 4:4)
“Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:” (Romans 15:8)


            So God had Paul ink Romans and Galatians for us to understand that when Jesus Christ taught in His earthly ministry, and spoke of The Gospel of The Kingdom it was for Israel (The Circumcision). It also shows us the reasons why Jesus Christ had to become water baptized for Jesus Christ was Jewish, in fact among many other titles Jesus Christ was also a priest of Israel, and the following verses will show you the first reason why Jesus Christ had to fulfil becoming water baptized.

Matthew 3:13-15 “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.”

            John the Baptist finally suffered to water baptize Jesus Christ to fulfil all righteousness.Why? ….. because remember under the program that God dealt with Israel, God required Israel’s priests to be washed (that is with water). God always does everything correctly so Jesus Christ had to be ceremonial washed to become a priest of Israel.


***** Important Note ***** Most people think that water baptism washes away sins. Why would Jesus Christ need that? ….. Jesus Christ had no sin Himself, God is perfect and sinless ( II Corinthains 5:21). Water baptism today serves no function outside of getting you wet.


Exodus 29:1-4 “And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto me in the priest's office: Take one young bullock, and two rams without blemish, 2 And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten flour shalt thou make them. 3 And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams. 4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water.”

Exodus 30:19-21 “For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat: 20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD: 21 So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.”

Exodus 40:12-13 “And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water. 13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.”

Leviticus 8:6 “And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water.”

            Now granted there was more done that just washing to be allowed to become a priest of Israel, but hopefully you will see that being washed was one component that God required, and Jesus Christ dutifully followed His own requirement. Jesus Christ has many titles (Prophet, King, God, Healer, Etc...) but, He was also a priest (not just any priest, BUT High Priest) of Israel and we will turn to the book of Hebrews for the Scriptural evidence of that.

Hebrews 4:14 “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession”
Hebrews 6:20 “Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.”
Hebrews 7:14-28 “For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. 15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, 16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. 17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. 18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. 19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. 20 And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest: 21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) 22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. 23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: 24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. 26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. 28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.”


            Remember God said that one day all of Israel would become priests, so the entire world could know the One True God.

            “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” (Exodus 19:5-6) “I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;” (Isaiah 42:6) “And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:6) “For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.” (Isaiah 60:2-3) “Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.” (Zechariah 8:23)

            There is more than one reason Jesus Christ was water baptized, the first mentioned was Jesus Christ is a priest of Israel, but Jesus Christ was also an offering for sin.

Leviticus 1:9 “But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.”

II Chronicles 4:6 “He made also ten lavers, and put five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them: such things as they offered for the burnt offering they washed in them; but the sea was for the priests to wash in.”

Ephesians 5:2 “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”

            Jesus Christ was also water baptized for identification with Israel. They that justified God were water baptized, those that rejected God, did not get water baptized.

Luke 7:29-30 “And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. 30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.”

            John the Baptist was to prepare the way for Him, and did so by presenting that Jesus was The Christ to Israel.

John 1:29-32 “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. 32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.”

            Jesus Christ never water baptized anyone.
John 4:2 “(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)”

Matthew 3:11 “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:”

Mark 1:7-8 “And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.”

            Remember Jesus Christ’s Earthly Ministry was to Israel, He was promised to Israel in The Old Testament Scripture.

Luke 1:31-33 “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”

            In Luke 1:68 and Luke 1:73 pay attention to what is written: (1) of Israel (2) redeemed his people and (3) to our father Abraham
Luke makes it very clear …. Lord God of Israel and redeemed his people (Israel’s people) it was to Israel and not to the entire world. Remember Jesus was Jewish so His people are Jewish.

Luke 1:67,68,73 “And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, 73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,”

            Today we follow Paul’s Epistles for Doctrine and Salvation through The Gospel given to Paul to preach to the entire world, but as in the case of Israel, This Dispensation (Age) will end, and God will take up Israel and Cleanse them and make of them a Kingdom of Priests to which all of Israel will become washed (water baptism) and accept the Kingdom Gospel.

Romans 11:1-13 “I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying, 3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. 4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. 5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. 7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. 9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. 11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. 12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? 13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:”

            Israel fell and was set aside and God changed how He was dealing with mankind, God choose Paul to give The Gospel of Grace to us.

Remember God is not done with Israel and all the promises that God gave unto them will one day be fulfilled.

            “Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.” (Romans 11:20-27)

            Why did God have Paul write I Corinthians 1:17, because God did not send Paul to Israel, but to the entire world with a new Gospel and that did not include water baptism.

I Corinthians 1:17 “For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.”

Hebrews 10:25



            Many people do not understand this verse (Hebrews 10:25) and then they try to make it apply to their lives today, and force it to mean something other than what it says as well as claiming it for themselves, to whom it was not intended.

Hebrews 10:25 “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

            Hebrews (the title tells you to whom it is addressed) so this book is written to the Jews, Jews that are in fact believers in Jesus Christ as thier Messiah, but they are still under the law. These Jews addressed in Hebrews believed in the Gospel of the Kingdom (Earthly Focus) and have no part of The Gospel of Grace, or the Heavenly Focus that we today have with God.

Hebrews 1:1 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,”

            Who are the fathers being spoken of? Let us allow God's Word to define and show us that.

Hebrews 8:7-13 “For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. 8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: 9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: 11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. 13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.”

            The fathers spoken of in Hebrews 1:1 are the Nation of Israel referred to in greater explanation in Hebrews 8:9, the Jews under Law with a covenant with God, so after The Body of Christ is caught up into the air (“The Rapture” of the Church/Body of Christ: I Thessalonians 4:17), God will go back to dealing with the world through the Nation of Israel and return to the Gospel of the Kingdom, for The Gospel of Grace will end when God returns to dealing with Israel under an Earthly Focus.

            “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: 25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; 26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. Hebrews 10:1 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. 3 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. 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, 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 ( refers to Hebrews 8:9-13 ) 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. 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. 19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,” (Hebrews 9:24 to Hebrews 10:26)

            Hebrews chapters 9 and 10 is mostly talking about Jesus Christ having made One sacrifice and NO MORE will ever be made. Remember the book of Hebrews is to Israel for doctrine and in The 1000 year Kingdom Jesus Christ as High Priest will not make any sacrifices, due to the fact that He already made one that will replace all the animal sacrifices of the past. The Kingdom will still have priests (all of Israel, not just the Tribe of Levi) and The Kingdom will have Law, but the Law and the priesthood will change. (Hebrews 7:12)

Hebrews 3:12-19 “Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; 15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”

            Remember to always read more than just one verse to understand what it is talking about to avoid taking doctrine or truths out of context and appointing them to the wrong situation or the wrong people (The Jews under Law {Earthly Focus} or The Body of Christ {Heavenly Focus} under Grace/Faith plus nothing). It helps if you know what each Book of The Bible is directed to for Bible Doctrine to be able to properly divide God's Word. (II Timothy 2:15)

Hebrews 9:1-15 “Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.2 For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;5 And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly. 6 Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.7 But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:8 The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:9 Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;10 Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.”

            The High Priest of Israel (Hebrews 9:7) went alone into the second taberbnacle once a year, not without blood, and then The High Priest offered for both himself, and for the errors of the people (Israel).

Exodus 30:10 “And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto the LORD.”

Leviticus 16:23-34 “And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there:24 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the people.25 And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar.26 And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.27 And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.28 And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.29 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD.31 It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever.32 And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen clothes, even the holy garments:33 And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation, and for the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the priests, and for all the people of the congregation.34 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.”

            Jesus Christ (as High Priest) had no sin Himself, but Jesus Christ as the High Priest of Israel did provide A ONE TIME ONLY blood sacfrice for the errors of the people (the people = Israel alone, and we know this how? -- The Book to the Hebrews).

*** Remember ***
            Jesus Christ’s sacrifice (at Calvary) for Israel was part of the Law keeping requirements, to keep Israel right with God. Hebrews is showing that Jesus Christ is not only a High Priest of Israel, but He is a better High Priest, since all high priests before Him had to go every year, both for their own sins, and for the people of Israel on a yearly basis.

            Jesus Christ as The High Priest of Israel only had to do this ONCE for He was sinless and did not need to go back yearly for only the Jewish High Priests had to go yearly to make atonements for their sins. God made sure that Israel would know that no other blood sacfrices would take place for Israel’s errors/inquities/sins and that is why Hebrews 10:25 is so vitally important to Israel, THE HEBREWS.

            The meaning of Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together in Hebrews 10:25 means this, the Jews need to always exhort themselves and others that Jesus Christ already made One Sacrifice and He Will Not be making another ever! Chapter 3:12-19 is a parallel of meaning to Hebrews 10, The Jews need to exhort each other that Jesus Christ made the One and Only sacrifice for sin, and they must endure until the end (Matthew 24:13) or face not entering into God's Rest. {Remember Israel is still under The Law during the Tribulation}

Verses for Witnessing



Witnessing =
Sharing the truth of God’s Words to those that do not live for God, this includes sharing The Gospel, and living a Life, that hopefully reflects how God would like us to live.

Believer’s Responsibilities =
(1) Knowing how to respond to questions asked about God, and His Word.
(2) Living a life that would have others ask, why are you different, this allows us to share The Truth about Jesus Christ and witness the Gospel to them.
            “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ,” (II Corinthians 5:20a) “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” (II Timothy 2:24-26)

            Here are some verses that will better equip believers to answer several important questions:
(1) How someone is saved
(2) Why we are eternally/forever saved and
(3) Our condition after we trust Jesus Christ’s payment for our sins.

Salvation Verses


I Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
Romans 5:6-8 “For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 3:10-23 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes. 19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

Jesus Christ Saves us, not any works that we can do


Ephesians 2:5-9 “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Ephesians 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;”
Colossians 1:14 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”


Forever Saved / Sealed with The Holy Spirit



Ephesians 1:13 “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,”
Ephesians 4:30 “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”
II Corinthians 1:22 “Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.”


Our New Nature after Salvation



II Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Galatians 5:17 “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”
Romans 7:18-23 “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.”

Our Future Bodies



Ephesians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:”
I Corinthians 15:42-50 “So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: 43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”

Why we Must be Saved



            God hates sin. At birth we are sinners, and that sin that is within us must be dealt with in one of two ways:
(1) We choose to pay off the sin debt ourselves in Hell (Hell will one day be emptied into the Lake of Fire) or
(2) We allow Jesus Christ to pay our Sin debt. *** Note*** Jesus Christ already submitted the payment. Trusting the Gospel is Free.

Psalm 5:4-5 “For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.”
II Thessalonians 1:8-9 “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;”
I Corinthians 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Old Testament Prophecies Alluding to Jesus Christ (The Messiah)



            These Old Testament verses are especially good when witnessing to Jews, who have not yet seen that Jesus Christ is The Messiah that was promised to them in numerous Old Testament passages.

Israel was to be The Light to the Gentiles



Exodus 19:5-6 “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”
Isaiah 42:6-8 “I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”

            Old Testament descriptions of The Messiah seems to indicate that there will be two messiahs, when in fact there is only one (that one is Jesus Christ). Jesus Christ already fulfilled one description (The Messiah that Suffers), but will one day also fulfill the second description (The Messiah that Reigns/Delivers).


Messiah that Suffers



Isaiah 50:6 “I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.”
Isaiah 53:2-8 “For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken”
Isaiah 52:14-15 “As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: 15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.”

Messiah that Reigns (Delivers Israel from her Enemies)



Isaiah 9:6-7 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”
Jeremiah 23:5 “Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.”

            Prophecy that one day will be fulfilled, speaking of the 1000 year Kingdom promised to Israel.
Luke 1:31-33 “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”


One Day Israel will see Jesus Christ as their Messiah



           Israel always required signs, and God will again use a sign to prove Himself to Israel as He did to Thomas in The Book of John.
Zechariah 12:10 “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”
Zechariah 13:6 “And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.”
John 20:24-29 “But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God. 29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”

Today



Romans 11:7-11 “What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. 9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. 11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.”
Romans 11:25-30 “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes. 29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:”

            Today Our Gospel is for everyone, and we need not go through anyone to get to God. God in the past, did choose Israel to be The priests of God, so other nations had to go through The System God created in where you went through Israel to get to Him. God will one day return to that system, when Jesus Christ returns to dealing with Israel, the Kingdom Gospel, and returns to an Earthly Focus.

Caught Up (The Rapture)



I Thessalonians 4:17 “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

            The word rapture is not found in The Bible, but practically everyone has heard of that word, even unbelievers. The phrase caught up in The Bible is based on the greek word harpazo, to which it can mean: to catch, steal, carry off, take by force, pluck, etc. The word Rapture as we know it, came from the Latin word raptare (rapio rapui ratum : to seize, snatch, carry away).

            “The Rapture” is basically at some time (unknown) in the future, Jesus Christ will return, not on the ground (as spoken in Acts 1:11 and Daniel 7:13-14), but in the air to receive The Saints (Members of The Body of Christ) unto Himself. Believers Today will not go through The Tribulation spoken of in the Old Testament, and I will give verses to support this fact.

I Thessalonians 1:10 “And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

I Thessalonians 5:9 “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,”

            The Holy Spirit, that indwells all believers today, will be removed, and must be removed according to Scripture.

II Thessalonians 2:1-7 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.”

The he in verse 7 of II Thessalonians chapter 2 refers to The Holy Spirit, and since we are sealed with The Holy Spirit, if The Holy Spirit needs to be removed then we too must me removed. In John scripture shows us actions that The Holy Spirit (The Comforter) does on earth, in additon to teaching and guiding believers.

John 16:7-11 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.”

            “I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying, 3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. 4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. 5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. 7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. 9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: 10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. 11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. 12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? 13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: 14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. 15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? 16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. 17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in. 20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:” (Romans 11:1-26)

            Romans chapter 11 teaches us:
(1) God is not done with Israel
(2) The reasons why God is now dealing directly with Gentiles, while before Gentiles had to go through Israel to get to God and
(3) Israel will not remain blind forever, and The Whole Nation of Israel will become saved one day. That one day for Israel will happen after the fulness of the gentiles be come in. (Romans 11:25-26a)

            “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” (Matthew 24:3-14)

            So in Matthew 24 Jesus Christ told his disciples when He will return and of the end of the world. Jesus Christ's replied of many things, but one thing, Jesus Christ said in verse 14 tells us today, that we will be gone before that time. Why you ask? ..... It is simple, we do not teach the Gospel of the Kingdom today, but the Gospel of Grace. (God is dealing with us today with a Heavenly Focus and with The Gospel of Grace, and God was dealing with Israel with an Earthly Focus and the Gospel of the Kingdom).

            When Believers (The Body of Christ = all those that trust The Gospel of Grace {I Corinthians 15:1-4}) are caught up they will meet Jesus Christ in the air and be given thier new bodies of flesh and bone and will forever be with God. At this same time The Holy Spirit is removed from the earth as The Body of Christ is removed from the earth and today’s Gospel of Grace will stop for God will no longer be dealing with mankind with a Heavenly Focus. At the time of being caught up, God’s Dispensation of Grace will be over, and God’s Gospel of Grace will end.

            God will return to His dealings with Israel and the rest of the World with the same Gospel of the Kingdom (Earthly Focus) that was taught during Jesus Christ's Earthly Ministry. Paul told us to not teach/preach any other Gospel than the one he preached, or let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:8-9 and Galatians 2:7-8)

*** Remember *** We must rightly divide and that includes all Bible doctrines as God commanded us to.
If we do not rightly divide as God told us to do, The Bible will confuse you on a great many things, but once you properly place doctrines in their proper place, everything becomes clear. (II Timothy 2:15)
Israel was promised a Kingdom (Earthly Focus), but God had Paul to tell us that we are promised heavenly places (Heavenly Focus)
“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:” (Philippians 3:20)

God had Paul write to us a mystery, and remember the mysteries that God gave to Paul, were unknown to all prior to God giving it to Paul, to give to us.

            “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(I Corinthians 15:51-57)

The Last Week of Daniel



            The Book of Revelation is very popular among Christians today, and yet most people do not understand the Book of Revelation any better than most of The Bible they read, this topic will not go into depth into the Book of Revelation, but will address when and to whom The 70th week (Tribulation Week) spoken of in the Book of Daniel started.

            Yes, I meant started. it already began, but it was interrupted by today’s Body of Christ and what God called The Mystery Period, The Dispensation of The Grace of God, that God gave unto Paul, to give unto us.

Daniel 9:20-23 “And whiles I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; 21 Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. 22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. 23 At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision.”

            In Daniel chapter 9, God told us something about a then future event. Let us look first to whom the dream (given to Daniel) was directed to. Look at verse 20 (Daniel wrote my people Israel) and verse 24 (Daniel wrote that seventy weeks are determined upon thy people). Thy people in verse 24 was defined in verse 20 being Israel, so Israel is being given information about 70 weeks, and then God breaks down that seventy weeks into segments:

(1) The first segment is 7 weeks, and
(2) The second segment is 62 weeks, and
(3) Lastly the third segment is 1 week, to which most of the World knows better as Tribulation Week.

Daniel 9:24-26a “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks : the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself:”

Ok, so in verse 25 we had 69 weeks unto the Messiah,
we also see that the Messiah is cut off after……. not in, and not before 69 weeks, but after 69 weeks.

So 7 plus 62 = 69
and after 69 would be 70, the last week spoken of in Daniel, which again is best known as the Tribulation Week.
This week is referred to belonging to Israel in Daniel 9:20-24 as well as being called Jacob’s Trouble. Jacob was renamed Israel in Genesis, so again Tribulation Week, or the Last Week of Daniel or The Seventieth Week, all ways you wish to phrase it, belongs to Israel.

Genesis 32:28 “And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.”

Jeremiah 30:4-7 “And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. 5 For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. 6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? 7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.”

Matthew 24:21-22 “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.”

When we compare Jeremiah 30:7 with Matthew 24:21, what can we understand?
(1) We can know that God is talking about the same event, because both are referring to something so great that nothing else compares to it
(2) We can understand why The Last Week, Time of Jacob’s Trouble is called Tribulation Week.
(3) We know to whom it was directed to………YES………...Directed to Israel, as is The whole Book of Matthew. Yet more evidence the Body of Christ will not go through The Last Week of Daniel (Tribulation Week)
(4) We also can see that in Matthew 24:22 that those days (Last week of Daniel, Tribulation Week, which equals 7 years) will be shortened, how much you say? God did not specify exactly, but we can conclude that perhaps it is one year, or part of one year.

Luke 4:18-20 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.”

            I believe, that part of one year (of the 7 years of the last week of Tribulation) did in fact start when Christ Died at The Cross (Messiah cut off after 69 weeks) and The Last Week of Daniel did in fact start at the end of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and continued into the early chapters of Acts, and stopped when God introduced a NEW Dispensation, and placed Israel on Hold (Israel was set aside).
            God then used Paul and The Body of Christ which was new, not spoken of prior to Paul being given the revelation of the mystery with a New Gospel,one different than the one Peter and The One Jesus Christ spoke of in His earthly ministry which comprises of The Kingdom, to which we are not given, for we have heavenly places (Heavenly Focus) as our inheritance not earthly places (Earthly Focus), and The Kingdom was given to Israel and is an Earthly promise.

            The fact that Jesus Christ did stop (closed the book) after speaking about the acceptable year, and did not finish quoting Isaiah 61:2 and declare that the day of vengeance, was in fact proof that Jesus Christ knew that Israel would reject Him as their Messiah (Israel’s last rejection of Jesus Christ was in Acts chapter 7) and proves two things.
(1) Jesus Christ as The Author of The Bible, understands rightly dividing and
(2) Jesus Christ knows everything and never gave up in part of in full His Deity at any time during His Earthly Ministry.

Isaiah 61:1-2 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;”

            More Evidence that Peter (in the Book of Acts) was in fact speaking to Israel during the Seventieth Week of Daniel.

Acts 2:16-22 “But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:”
Joel 2:27-31 “And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. 28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. 30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.”

            Joel makes it clear that what he wrote of was to Israel, and Peter made it clear when he said, Ye men of Israel, and that means when we compare Revelation 6:12 we have yet more proof that Tribulation Week is to Israel and not to The Body of Christ.

Revelation 6:12 “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;”
            In Acts 2:22 it shows that Jesus Christ did signs and wonders, and signs were given to Israel, not The Body of Christ, for we (Christians who are saved today are part of The Body of Christ) are to live by faith and not sight. ( II Corinthians 5:7)

            In Acts chapter Two it talks about pouring out of God’s Spirit, that was spoken of in Joel, so we can see Two things:
(1) Acts 2 is to Israel and
(2) The pouring out of God’s Spirit is a sign of the beginning of the Last Week of Daniel started.

            We can also know that what was started was interrupted for God did not turn the sun dark, nor turn the moon into blood yet. We know that Revelation is speaking of The Tribulation Week, and we know that God started, but did not finish The Seventieth Week.
            God gave signs to Israel, for the Jews required them, we today are not given signs, for we are not Israel, nor are we given what was given to Israel. Israel was given signs and wonders, and covenants/promises like Testaments (Old and New) and The Law that God gave Moses to give to Israel alone to follow.

I Corinthians 1:22 “For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:”

Exodus 19:3-8 “And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant,then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. 7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. 8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD.”

            Today we do not have signs, but Faith.
“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” (II Corinthians 5:7)

This chart is also found under the section Dispensational Timeline





The transition in the Book of Acts is hard to understand for most people, that is why I tried to use charts to help illustrate what God has told us. I have placed the statement (both in operation) in chart #2, and I want to explain what I mean by that.

            When Jesus Christ was cut off, it was after 69 weeks, so Jesus Christ was cut of in the 70th week spoken of in Daniel, this is still Earthly Focus with the Kingdom Gospel.

When Israel rejected Jesus as The Christ for the last time in Acts chapter 7, Jesus Christ (God) decided to pause the 70th week of Daniel, and went to Paul in Acts chapter 9.

Know that even with a change of operation, God did not wait until everyone who trusted the Kingdom Gospel to die off, so until those Jews, and the few exceptions of gentiles that believed in the Kingdom Gospel died, there were two groups alive:
(1) Group one = Peter and those who trusted in the Kingdom Gospel, still under the Law (Earthly Focus) and
(2) Group two = Paul and those who trusted in the Gospel of Grace, not under the Law (Heavenly Focus)

Why do people find Dispensationalism so difficult to believe???




      I can only speculate, and this is based on only my own experience, to the various reasons, but I do know that God did not make it difficult to see, providing you are in fact studying God’s Word, and not just reading God’s Word.

      The biggest reason why Dispensationalism is hard to accept I think might be a lack of Belief, both in God and in God’s Word.

      As someone grows up they are taught many things ranging from belief in God to atheism. At an early age it is easy to simply believe what you are taught, and as you get older, it is very easy to not challenge whatever was learned at an earlier age. If you are taught something that is inaccurate, it is not hard to imagine that you will have a difficult time believing something different later in life, even if that something is God’s Word. This bias, or inaccurate information that one thinks to be true, on bible doctrine can then be hard wired into your brain, and is very hard to remove, even when/if you study and read Scripture that actually does not conform to The Bible doctrine you were taught earlier in life.

      Another reason is people are lazy, and if you have someone who you believe to be skilled in The Bible, then it is very easy in one’s mind to allow them to be your authority for all bible doctrines found within God’s Word. If you are told that there are no big differences in The Bible, you can then hard wire a false belief that nothing needs dividing, even when God said to do just that in II Timothy 2:15.

      I was once told in a conversation about the reason why I left a church, and in that conversation, I was told by that person that a true debate could not occur because he (the other person I was talking to about this) had not studied that particular topic in depth. You will need to know that I was told, that he was right and I was wrong, because he sat under good preaching for 50 years, and that good preaching pastor/s of his must be right, so I then must be wrong. That conversation turned out the way it did without any true study/praying from that individual, and that is an easy/true example of why many people do not see bible truth, when they face something they do not know enough about, they rely on what they have heard, not what God wrote on the matter.

      History can either help to understand something, or it can enhance one’s disillusions about something.

      Long time ago, after Jesus Christ died, some people did not believe Jesus Christ was God, and they did not trust that Jesus Christ did everything for our Salvation. They did not believe in God, nor did they believe in God’s Word. If the victors write the history books, and the victors were not correct, what would you expect to find in the history books, Truth or Inaccuracies?

      Pastors/bible teachers of today, too often follow a pattern that was already pronounced wrong by God Himself.

      Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, told the leaders of Israel, that they followed their own traditions, above God’s Word.

      This false belief system of the tradition of men over God’s Word is happening again today, and with the bias I mentioned earlier, the inaccurate information they are taught at an earlier age, can then be augmented and built upon when they then choose to go to a school that teaches the traditions of men, that is contrary to God’s Word rightly divided.

      People will study what man has decided to be true, for they did not believe God’s Word, so they interpreted what they wanted The Bible to say, and made traditions and belief systems to mirror what they would like God’s Word to say, no doubt the cause for many of The Bible translations and the various church denominations found in the world today. If you do not like what your church teaches, you can find or create a new church, but if you want true bible doctrines to be taught you need to know whom to trust for that bible doctrine.

      I would like to again mention a critical component of believing God’s Word, and this component should be firmly grasped at the beginning of your Bible Study. Whom have you placed as your authority in deciding right from wrong concerning bible doctrine?

The correct answer is God.

That authority is seen in His Word, The King James Bible, it is how God preserved His Word for us today, to know what God would have us to know.

      Salvation is something you need to understand completely and accurately, for this is the only test in your life you must pass.

      The problem that all mankind has is their sin, and the only response to sin that will give you a passing grade, is to Trust the Gospel of Grace for your Salvation. This is the most important test you will ever face, and a passing grade is easy, God did all the work for you.

      Remember God is real.

      God wrote to us that He (God) created Life and the universe, as we see it and you are able to know that God is real by sincerely praying and asking God to reveal Himself to you.

      Remember, if you do not believe in God or His Word, then you are open to believe any idea that man has invented to explain the world and the creatures that live in it. Mankind has invented many gods, and that includes the god of evolution (Darwin’s Theory), but if you want to learn about the one true God, then you need to study God’s Word and allow God’s Word to teach you what God would have you to know, not what man will teach you.

      God choose to communicate to us through His Word, and His Word makes it clear that there is only one way to become saved, and Salvation is by trusting the Gospel, and the Gospel that saves you today, must be rightly divided from The Gospel that will not save you.

      Believing in a false gospel will only prevent you from becoming saved, which is why God warned us in Galatians 1, that they that preach another Gospel, let him be accursed.

      “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-9)

My last thought for you is this.

      I want people to trust in God an allow God’s Word, not an opinion or whatever the majority of people believe, to be your Authority in Bible Doctrine. Our Authority can only be God’s Word, and we need to trust God, not the church we grew up in, not our parents, not Christian colleges, not our friends, for too many people today hold onto false doctrines, that was passed on to them at an early age.

      Many of them then try to pass that false doctrine onto you. I am not claiming that any of them are doing it on purpose, for sincerity does not equal accuracy, accuracy can only come by God’s Word rightly divided.

      The Gospel that will save you was made simple and free, Trust what Jesus Christ did on the cross.
Jesus Christ died for your sins and arose again on the third day to justify you before God!

      “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”
(I Corinthians 15:1-4)

      “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,” (Ephesians 1:13)

Covenants and Israel




**** Remember, Do not confuse Covenants with Dispensations ****


      Many people have heard various lists about Covenants, most include only 7 covenants, ranging from:
Edenic-Adamic-Noahic-Abrahamic-Palestinian-Moasic-Priestly-Davidic- New Covenant
Some people break down New Covenant even further into the next two categories:[1]New Covenant in Judiasm [2]New Covenant in Christianity

The word covenant is found in 272 verses. The first time = Genesis 6:18 and the last time = Hebrews 13:20.

The Webster's 1828 definition of the word Covenant.
COVENANT, n. [L, to come; a coming together; a meeting or agreement of minds.] 1. A mutual consent or agreement of two or more persons, to do or to forbear some act or thing; a contract; stipulation. A covenant is created by deed in writing, sealed and executed; or it may be implied in the contract. 3. In theology, the covenant of works, is that implied in the commands, prohibitions, and promises of God; the promise of God to man, that mans perfect obedience should entitle him to happiness. This do, and live; that do, and die. The covenant of redemption, is the mutual agreement between the Father and Son, respecting the redemption of sinners by Christ. The covenant of grace, is that by which God engages to bestow salvation on man, upon the condition that man shall believe in Christ and yield obedience to the terms of the gospel.

COVENANT, v.i. To enter into a formal agreement; to stipulate; to bind ones self by contract.

COVENANT, v.t. To grant or promise by covenant.

      Covenants are either conditional or they are a promise given / unconditional.

**Note** This Study will look at God's Covenants only, so the 6 examples given below are Covenants that God has with mankind.

The word covenant is not found in Genesis 12 or II Samuel 7.
In the case of the Genesis 12 Covenant, we have Genesis 15 to support that God did indeed give Abram a Covenant in Genesis 12.
In II Samuel 7, God did not use the word Covenant, but it is indeed a promise given, and it is given to David's House, and David's House sat on The Throne over Israel.

The Covenants found within Scripture:

[1]Genesis 6:18 (conditional)
      w/Noah -- to live Noah must build a ark

Genesis 6:18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.

[2]Genesis 9:8-17 (unconditional)
      w/Noah & seed and all creatures -- God will not destroy earth by a flood of water again

Genesis 9:8-17 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. 11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. 12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. 14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: 15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. 17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

[3]Genesis 12:1-5 (conditional)
      w/Abram & seed

IF -- Abram leaves...... THEN -- God will give Abram / Abram's seed
[A] Land [B] Make Abram a great nation [C] Make Abram's name great [D] God will Bless/Curse those that bless/curse Abram

Genesis 12:1-5 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. 4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. 5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

      These verses reaffirms the earlier Covenant seen in Genesis 12:
[1]Gen 13:14-16 [2]Gen 15:18 has the word covenant which supports that Genesis 12 is indeed a Covenant, and [3]Gen 35:9-12

Genesis 13:14-16 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: 15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. 16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
Genesis 15:18 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:
Genesis 35:9-12 And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him. 10 And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. 11 And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; 12 And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

[4]Genesis 17:1-21 (conditional)
      w/Abram & seed --

[A]Multiply thee exceedingly / make Abraham a father of many nations and God renamed Abram to Abraham.
[B]To be a God to thee/thy seed for an everlasting covenant.
[C]Reaffirms land covenant (c.f. Genesis 12).
[D](v.10) male circumcision (as a token of this Covenant).

Genesis 17:1-21 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. 2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. 3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, 4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. 5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. 6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. 7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. 9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. 10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. 11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. 12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed. 13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant. 15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. 16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her. 17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear? 18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee! 19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. 21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

[5]Exodus 19:1-6 / Exodus 24:1-8 (conditional)
      w/ Israel and Dedicated w/blood ....... (C.F. = Hebrews chapters 8 & 9)

This Covenant contains a lot of information, we will look at only some of the items that this Covenant contains.

This Covenant is very much a conditional (IF / THEN) Covenant and this Covenant is directed to one nation only, and that nation is Israel.
      So IF Israel obeys God, THEN God will:
[A]Make Israel above all people
[B]Make Israel a Kingdom of priests
[C]God gives Israel a token in Exodus 31:12-17, of Sabbath keeping which is a sign (v.16-17) to Israel for a perpetual Covenant.
[D] There are many more examples of what this Covenant contains, but I will be posting only some, but you will need to read all of Exodus through Deuteronomy to get all of the information that God had Israel to follow. [D1] Priestly information [D2] 600+ laws, including the 10 Commandments [D3]NO Covenants with other nations / people and NO worshipping false gods.

Exodus 19:1-6 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. 2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount. 3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
Exodus 24:1-8 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off. 2 And Moses alone shall come near the LORD: but they shall not come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him. 3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do. 4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD. 6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. 7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient. 8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words.

Exodus 31:12-17 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. 14 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
Exodus 40:12-15 And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water. 13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him, and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest's office. 14 And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats: 15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office: for their anointing shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.
Numbers 25:11-13 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy. 12 Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace: 13 And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.
Exodus 20:1-17 And God spake all these words, saying, 2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. 7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. 8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. 12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 13 Thou shalt not kill. 14 Thou shalt not commit adultery. 15 Thou shalt not steal. 16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. 17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
Exodus 34:12-15 Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee: 13 But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: 14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: 15 Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;
Deuteronomy 7:1-2 When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; 2 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:


      What most people do not understand is the fact that what people think about The Old Testament and New Testament is inaccurate.
The fact is The Old Testament did not start in Genesis 1 and the New Testament did not start in Matthew 1.

      The Covenant God gave to Israel, this Covenant is conditional, was documented starting in Exodus 19 and is found through many chapters of various books that Moses inked (Moses wrote Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy), and contains all of the 600 plus points of Law, the priestly information, the Sabbath that Israel MUST observe, and other information WRITTEN to Israel and FOR Israel to obey and follow. It is this Covenant that can be said to be The Old Testament.


Webster's 1828 defintion for the word Testament.
TEST'AMENT , n. [L. testamentum, from testor, to make a will.]
1. A solemn authentic instrument in writing, by which a person declares his will as to the disposal of his estate and effects after his death. This is otherwise called a will. A testament,to be valid, must be made when the testator is of sound mind, and it must be subscribed, witnessed and published in such manner as the law prescribes.

A man in certain cases may make a valid will by words only, and such will is called nuncupative.

2. The name of each general division of the canonical books of the sacred Scriptures; as the Old Testament; the New Testament. The name is equivalent to covenant, and in our use of it, we apply it to the books which contain the old and new dispensations; that of Moses, and that of Jesus Christ.



      Jesus Christ's blood equals the New Testament, this is seen in Luke 22:19-20 and term New Testament is interchangeable with the term New Covenant, seen in Hebrews 12:24. (c.f. verses are Hebrews 9:16-10:17).

Luke 22:19-20 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
Hebrews 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Hebrews 9:16 to Hebrews 10:17 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. 17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. 18 Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. 19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, 20 Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. 21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. 22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. 23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: 25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; 26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
Hebrew 10:1 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. 3 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. 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, 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.


[6]II Samuel 7:4,5,8-16 (unconditional)
      w/David & seed

[A]God will plant Israel in a place their own and move no more.
[B]Israel will no longer be afflicted by children of wickedness.
[C]The King of Israel will be for ever from David's House / seed line.

II Samuel 7:4-5; 8-16 And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD came unto Nathan, saying, 5 Go and tell my servant David, Thus saith the LORD, Shalt thou build me an house for me to dwell in? 8 Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: 9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth. 10 Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime, 11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house. 12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. 14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: 15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee. 16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.

      We can see that God reaffirms a portion of the Genesis 17 Covenant in II Samuel 7, which was given to Abraham about a 1000 years earlier.

II Samuel 7:22-24 Wherefore thou art great, O LORD God: for there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 23 And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for thy land, before thy people, which thou redeemedst to thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods? 24 For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever: and thou, LORD, art become their God.
Genesis 17:7-8 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

Section Five: The Gospels, Yes there is more than One


The Gospels
Gospel of Grace from Paul


The Gospels



            The word gospel can mean various things if looked up in a dictionary: history, narration, speech, a good or joyful message are among them.
The Gospel (A Good and Joyful Message) is exactly what you will find in The Bible to show how God has made a way for us to live forever with Him, but which Gospel do we follow today? The Bible contains more than one Gospel, but this study will focus on only two of them, The Gospel of the Kingdom and The Gospel of Grace.

            A Little background is now needed.
Exodus 19:3-8 “And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. 7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. 8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD.”

            God made a covenant with Israel and in verse 5 said
"if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests".
            The nation of Israel was to be a light unto the gentiles to show the world (everyone that are not Jewish = gentiles) of the One True God. At this time God dealt with Israel only and to get to God you went through Israel, and more precise through the priests of the house of Levi to be made right with God. Exodus 20 starts with the giving of Law of God given unto Moses to give to Israel, who in Exodus 19:8 said they would do all that God asked them to do. God has given to Israel promises (Earthly Focus/Purpose) and made covenants with Israel that is for Israel Only, and one of those promises is for a Kingdom on earth with a King to reign over it, and to free Israel from her enemies forever. Jesus Christ was the King spoken of in Scripture and The Gospel of the Kingdom was to prepare Israel for that Kingdom.

            “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 4:17) “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.” (Matthew 4:23) “And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. 2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. 5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 10:1-7)

            Jesus asked a question and what was the answer that he was pleased with in Matthew 16?
Matthew 16:13-17 “When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”

            The forerunner spoken of in Malachi is John The Baptist.
Malachi 3:1 “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the LORD, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.”
Matthew 3:1-11 “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, 6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. 7But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: 9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:”

            John The Baptist preached the Kingdom was at hand and:
(1) You need to confess your sins
(2) Repent
(3) Be Water Baptized (Remember all priest of Israel needed to be ceremonial washed to be priests)
(4) The Messiah is coming.

            Once Jesus Christ started His ministry to Israel, The Gospel of the Kingdom changed only a little from what John the Baptist taught in Matthew chapter 3.
You had to believe that He (Jesus) is The Christ/The Messiah/The Son of God.
The Gospel of the Kingdom comprises:
(1) Confess your sins
(2) Repent
(3) Be Water Baptized (Remember all priest of Israel needed to be ceremonial washed to be priests)
(4) Believe that Jesus Christ is The Son of God.

*** NOTE *** Remember The Kingdom Gospel was to prepare Israel for an Earthly Kingdom (Earthly Focus/Purpose). In Contrast, God had Paul to tell us (Today’s Body of Christ) to look forward to heavenly places (Heavenly Focus/Purpose) seen in Ephesians 1:3 and Philippians 3:20.


Acts 2:36-38 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. 37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

            Peter and the other Apostles are speaking to Israel at Pentecost, and the question in verse 37 when they (Israel) realized that Jesus is The Son of God (Their Messiah) asked what are they to do? In Verse 38, Peter said to repent, and be baptized (water), all parts of the Kingdom Gospel, in addition to that they are also given The Holy Ghost, which was not given earlier.

Acts 8:26-38 “And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. 27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, 28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. 29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? 31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. 32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: 33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. 34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. 36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? 37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.”

            The four parts of the Kingdom Gospel is not all documented here in Acts chapter 8, but two of them are:
(1) Be water baptized and
(2) Realize Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

*** NOTE *** There is No Cross spoken of in Acts Chapter 8. There is no mention that Jesus Christ Died for the eunuch's sins, and nothing said about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ three days later for justification of sins.

Acts 11:1-19 “And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. 2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him, 3 Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them. 4 But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying, 5 I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me: 6 Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 7 And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat. 8 But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth. 9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. 10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven. 11 And, behold, immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me. 12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house: 13 And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; 14 Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved. 15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. 19 Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only.”

            Again Peter and the other Apostles to Israel went Only to the Jews in verse 19 why? ….. Peter and the others had to wait for The Kingdom to go to the other nations, but Peter and the others knew that the Kingdom has not arrived yet in Acts chapter 11, in fact God had already paused their Dispensation, but Peter did not realize this until Acts chapter 15/Galatians chapter 2 and that was seen very clearly in Galatians Chapter 2 where Peter set aside the commission (Matthew chapter 28) that he was given to go to the other nations (gentiles) and Peter knew that God was using Paul with a different method of dealing with mankind and that method included a different Gospel with a different Focus.

The Gospel of Grace.



Romans 11:13 “For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:”

Romans 1:1-3 “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, 2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) 3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

II Timothy 2:8 “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:”

Galatians 1:6-12 “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Galatians 2:7-9 “But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; 8 (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) 9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.”

I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

II Timothy 1:11 “Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.”

Romans 16:25-26 “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:”

            Peter and the 12 did not know understand or know of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ was going to happen prior to Jesus at Calvary, so they could not have preached the Gospel you are saved by back in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Luke 18:31-34 “Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished. 32 For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on: 33 And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again. 34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.”

John 20:1-9 “The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. 5 And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, 7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. 9 For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.”

The Gospel of Grace:
(1) Know/Believe/Accept/Trust that everyone is a sinner.    Romans 3:10 and 3:23
(2) The cost of sin is spiritual death (eternal separation from God).    Romans 5:12 and 6:23
(3) Jesus Christ paid the price for YOUR sins.    Romans 5:8
(4) Know/Believe/Accept/Trust that Jesus Christ Died for you and arose from the dead.    I Corinthians 15:1-4

            You need to admit to youself that you cannot in any way by any amount work save yourself. You need to trust in The Gospel and when you do, you are eternally sealed with God.

      “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:1-4)

II Timothy 2:8 “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel”

Galatians 2:14-21 “But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, 16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. 18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.”

Romans 1:16-17 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.”

Romans 3:23-26 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus”

Colossians 2:13-14 “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”

II Timothy 1:9 “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began”

Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men”

Titus 3:5 “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost”

Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:15-18 “But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. 17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.”

Galatians 1:6-12 “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Acts 26:15-18 “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.”

Acts 13:38-39 “Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: 39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.”

Galatians 3:8,11,14 “And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. 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. 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

Galatians 3:22-26 “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

Does Hell Exist?



            I was once told in an e-mail that I preach hatred…ignorance… intolerance among other things due to my stand that The Word of God (The King James Bible) will be my one and only standard of how to live. God’s Word is the authority on what God would have you to know, and I will not allow man’s traditions, or churches that choose to change God’s Word to say something other than what God preserved for us in The King James Bible. I will not compromise God’s Word just to have people like me, I have lost both close friends and family members on this, and I implore you to not compromise God’s Word either.
            God is the authority for man, and God’s Word is preserved perfectly in The King James Bible. If someone’s beliefs are contrary to God’s Word, then man is wrong, for only God is true.
            One of the main reasons that I received that remark was that I wrote about Hell. Secondly I wrote that if someone does not trust the Gospel for their salvation, then that person has decided to pay their sin debt themselves in Hell/Lake of Fire for all eternity.
            This topic will address that God wrote many times in Scripture that if someone does not accept God on God’s terms, then there is a punishment from God in a place that is currently called Hell, and Hell will one day be emptied into The Lake of Fire.

A quick description of Hell from Scripture.

            “And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” (Matthew 13:42) “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.” (Luke 16:19-26)

            It is apparent that God allows us to see beyond the borders of Hell, but God also allows us to know that we have no escape, for the rich man did not even plead for his own release, just accepting that his fate is eternal. Hell is the current place that people go when they reject God on God’s terms, but one day, Hell will be removed and all that are in it will be tossed into the Lake of Fire, which will be the continuance of Eternal Torments.

Revelation 20:11-15 “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”


            Many times over in Scripture God tells us that a punishment (judgment) will occur if we choose to live life our way and ignore God's Way.
*** Note *** God is Our Creator, so God does indeed have the right to set the terms.


Psalm 5:4-5 “For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.”

Isaiah 66:15-16 “For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. 16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.”

Malachi 4:1 “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.”

Matthew 25:31-46 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

Psalm 1:6 “For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”

II Thessalonians 1:8-9 “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;”


            I have good news for you, it is not too late! If you have not yet trusted The Gospel, then do so now! God wants you saved, and even though we (mankind) are wicked and evil at heart, God died for us to pay for our sin debts.

            Jesus Christ has offered a Gift to you that is without price, for we could never make enough or do enough to pay it ourselves. Jesus Christ:
(1) Created you for fellowship
(2) Wants you saved and
(3) Died for you to make this happen


Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Romans 5:12 “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain . 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”


(1) Know/Believe/Accept/Trust that everyone is a sinner.    Romans 3:10 and 3:23
(2) The cost of sin is spiritual death (eternal separation from God).    Romans 5:12 and 6:23
(3) Jesus Christ paid the price for YOUR sins.    Romans 5:8
(4) Know/Believe/Accept/Trust that Jesus Christ Died for you and arose from the dead.    I Corinthians 15:1-4


      Everyone is eligible for Salvation, nothing (no amount of work/s, or lack of work/s) in your past can prevent you from getting saved, only your disbelief in the Gospel will prevent your Salvation.
Titus 2:11 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men”


      The Free Gift of Salvation means:
(1) To know and believe that you are a sinner
(2) Jesus Christ Died for Your Sins
(3) Jesus Christ Arose up three days later {His proof that He is God and Jesus Christ's payment is sufficient for your sin debt}
(4) Allowing God to pay for Your sins and choosing to not pay them yourself {by sincerely trusting The Gospel}

II Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Satan, The Adversary




            It is clear from Scripture that Satan has one agenda in regards to dealing with mankind, and that is to attack us by using deception and to tempt us into doing that which is contrary to what God would have us to do.
            Satan is very real, and has great power and resources at his disposal (multitude of unclean spirits/fallen angels), so not fully comprehending this would be a grave mistake on your part, but more so if you are a member of The Body of Christ. It is hard enough on our own to try to live godly, but when we have a very real and powerful being out there doing all that he can to trip us up, it makes it very difficult indeed. Satan is accusing us before God all the time, so do not take this matter lightly for Satan is your Adversary!

Ezekiel 28:14-17 “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God ; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God : and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.”

Isaiah 14:12 -14 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

Revelation 12:3-4 & Revelation 12:7-10 “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 7 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. 9 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 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

I Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

Matthew 4:1-10 “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Ephesians 6:10 -18 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”

            Satan is very powerful.
I can not stress this enough Satan is very powerful and he does not like you, so remember to Always place your trust and strength in God. You can have this comfort, Satan days are numbered, which makes him even more dangerous.

Isaiah 14:15 “Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”

Revelation 20:2,7,10 “And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

            One of the many things Satan has done, is to convince much of mankind that he does not exist. If you believe Satan exists, most think of him as being a dark, and obviously evil looking creature that you can clearly point out in a crowd. Truth be told, he is very real, and he or any of his agents (unclean spirits or men that do not follow God) can appear righteous, but are in fact your enemies.
            Remember you need to allow God to be your only authority and you need to rely on God alone, for there are many that claim to speak of what God said, but if you compare what they claim to the Word of God you will find that they come close to the truth on many things, but
Remember something that is 99% true, is still a Lie!!!

II Corinthians 11:13-15 “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

Sodomy



            Some might not even like that term, since it is not the term they use for themselves. Some people use the term homosexual, alternate life style, gay, lesbian, etc... I am sure that most people do not use what God’s Word say about this, they use society’s values over God’s values, but as a Christian you should allow God’s Word to define what is true.

           I figure if God used the term Sodomite in The Bible, then that word or term takes precedence over what mankind chooses to describe the act that God has already given a definition for.

            “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (Genesis 2:18-24)

            It is clear God made man, and then later God made a woman for man and God said they shall be one flesh.

Matthew 19:5-6 “And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

            Again Jesus said that man and wife will be one flesh, so marriage is between man and a woman.

Genesis 19:4-7 “But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. 6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, 7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.”

            Here Lot tells the men of Sodom to not do so wickedly, the wicked act Lot is describing is the act of sex between man and another man.

In I Kings it talks of the land of Judah under King Rehoboam.
            “And Judah did evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done.23 For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree. 24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.” (I Kings 14:22-24)

            So the sodomite behavior is just as bad as idolatry to God it is an abomination.

Also in I Kings it talks of King Asa and what he did that was right in the eyes of the LORD.
            “And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. 12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.” (I Kings 15:11-12)

            So to God sodomy is wrong and sodomy is the act of the same sex knowing each other in ways that should be between a married man and his wife.

            God had Moses to inform Israel about many Laws and in Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13 it is very clear what God say about this act of sodomy.

Levitcus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

            So God wrote of a law (The Mosaic Law was to Israel, and today God is not dealing with Israel) that states that if they (Israel) broke the law regarding sodomy, then they (Israel) that break it should be put to death. God did not think lightly on this subject.

Be Aware, We are Not under The Law Today, We are not Israel


            Remember, We are not under the Law today, for we (The Body of Christ ) are under Grace. God’s Word is profitable to us today when we rightly divide it according to the Dispensations that God deals with mankind. The Law,which we are not bound to follow can still teach us what God finds displeasing and sodomy is displeasing to God. Lying is displeasing to God, so both lying and sodomy are equal in the sight of God, it is man that chooses to rank some sins higher than other sins.

Paul in Romans wrote about sodomy for the Dispensation of Grace, to which all believers today are in.

Romans 1:26-32 “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them”

            In Conclusion, I want to make my self very clear on this matter. I am not suggesting that you should hate those that practice sodomy. We are to hate the sin, not the sinner. We should treat them no different than how we treat murderers or liars.

            I once had a co-worker many years ago where I worked that practiced sodomy. This co-worker of mine did not initially tell me his life style choice, for he lied in fear of how others would think of him, but over time we became friends and eventually I was told about his life choice. I could not tell him that sodomy was ok, for God is the authority on what is right or wrong.

            Sin is sin. No one is perfect, but as Christians (members of the Body of Christ) we should be able to determine what is right and what is wrong in God's sight. We are all sinners and will continue to do so even after we Trust the Gospel of Grace (I Corinthians 15:1-4), but we should not continue to allow ourselves or other to think a behavior is acceptable just because millions says it should be. God is right, not man in that regard. We should witness to them of Jesus Christ and God’s Word and pray that their eyes will be open to their deeds.

Speaking in Tongues



            Many people today are either confused or misguided to tongues and other gifts that God spoke of in The Bible and whether those gifts are still valid for today. Remember God’s Word is the authority on all Bible Doctrines so allow God's Word to tell you what is right or wrong, not what you think or what you have been taught by others who do not rightly divide God’s Word. Remember to read and pray for the understanding on your own.

II Timothy 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

            First lets us look to the book of Mark, Jesus Christ was speaking to the eleven of information that they would have needed during the Tribulation, had they gone through it they would have needed these sign gifts for the ministry to the world, especially the gift where they can drink any deadly thing (Revelation 8:11).             Remember in Mark chapter 16 Jesus Christ is speaking to Israel under Law, and gave a commission to the eleven of things that Israel would need to know for the Tribulation (last week of seventy spoken of in Daniel chapter 9).
Mark 16: 14-19 “Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.”

            Jesus Christ taught the Gospel of the Kingdom and was talking in regards to the Jews and the Dispensation (Age) they were under. Mosaic Law and the Gospel of the Kingdom was directed to Israel, not the entire world. Today we are not under the Law, nor are we saved by the Gospel of the Kingdom. What did Jesus tell His disciples early on in His earthly ministry?

Matthew 10:5-7 “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Jesus and His disciples taught the Gospel of the Kingdom. not the Gospel of Grace to which we now live, that was given to Paul to tell us.”

            Remember Paul was given the Gospel of Grace, after God placed the Jews and the Law on hold, but after The Body of Christ is Caught up (I Thessalonians Chapter 4), God will return to the Jews and fulfill the promises He gave to them. Today the Lord Jesus gave to Paul the Gospel of Grace with a Heavenly Focus, which is far different from how God dealt with Israel with an Earthly Focus.

Ephesians 3:2-3 “If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,”

Galatians 1:11-12 “But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

            Signs, such as tongues were given to the Jews.

I Corinthians 1:22 “For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:”

            Jews required signs, so God provided them to the Jews. Paul told us why tongues were given.

I Corinthians 14:22 “Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.”

I Corinthians 13:8 “Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.”

            Tongues are not for today, neither are the gifts that were given to start the church, today we live by faith alone, The Gospel of Grace was given to Paul and the books : Romans through Philemon were written for us for Doctrine.

II Corinthians 5:7 “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”

            Sight would be a sign, not an act of faith and we were told to live by faith in this current Dispensation.

            Emotions are also a type of sight, so do not allow yourself to think that how you feel is God's Way of talking to you. We have God's Word as our Final Authority, and God's Word is the only way God communicates to us today.

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

            Also in Acts chapter 2 God defines to us what tongues are. Tongues are not a heavenly (unknown language { Angelic } to which some claim), but actually tongues are earth spoken languages.
            That is like someone born here in the USA/United States of America speaking in English, going to another country, attending a large event with a crowd of people from all over the world that can speak only their native tongue (not English) and all being able to hear our spoken English in their native tongue.

Acts 2:4-11 “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.”

            I hope I did not offend you, but Tongues and other signs are not for today during this Dispensation of Grace.

The Tithe



            Too many do not know what The Scripture says about tithing and too many preachers uses wrong Scripture verses to support their message that you are to tithe and the amount your are to give. I am posting the most common verses that mistaken preachers use to sway you into giving as well as explaing why those verses are not for today.

Malachi 3:8-10 “Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. 9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. 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.”

            The mistaken use of the verses includes:
(1) Will a man rob God in tithes and offerings and
(2) Bring your tithe to the storehouse and claiming that for today that the storehouse is the local church you are attending.
            Now go back to the verses and pay attention to the bold text in the above's Malachi 3:8-10 and let us go to Leviticus chapter 1 for explaination.

Leviticus 1:1-7 “And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. 3 If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD. 4 And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him. 5 And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 6 And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces. 7 And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire:”

            Here we see how that offerings spoken of in chapter three of Malachi are animal sacrifices for Israel's atonement for Sin when they (children of Israel) fail to live up to the Law's Requirements.

            Malachi chapter 3 speaks of tithes and offerings, that would mean we are required today (If God wanted us to follow Malachi for Doctrine), to bring our money (tithe) and our animals (offerings) to church to be sacrificed for our atonement for Sin.

            I do hope all of you reading this knows better than that, for we are not to do that any longer, because Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself for Our Sins and we are not in need to make any additional atonement payment for our Sin Debt. That alone would and should tell you that that those verses are taken out of context to support tithing for today, in addition to that, we have what God wrote in: Malachi 3:10b that states : “there may be meat in mine house,”

            What does that mean? It is simply that The House of Levi are to be given their support from the other tribes of Israel for thier living, since they did not get an inheritance of Land when they arrived in Canaan due to The Lord being their inheritance, and meat (food) was one of the ways they (The Levites) were supported and the reason the tithe was given to Israel to follow.

            Nehemiah also rebuked Judah, for not all the tribes were assembled at that time, to not forsake the share (tithe) to the Levites that was theirs by right.
Nehemiah 13:10-12 “And I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given them: for the Levites and the singers, that did the work, were fled every one to his field. 11 Then contended I with the rulers, and said, Why is the house of God forsaken? And I gathered them together, and set them in their place. 12 Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries.”

Malachi 1:1 “The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.”

            Yes, and by the way the opening verse in Malachi, states to whom the book of Malachi was writen to, and it was not written to you (Today's members of The Body of Christ for we are under The Dispensation of The Grace of God), but Malachi was written to Israel under The Law.



            I will now post verses that are valid for Doctrine today.

I Corinthians 9:7-14 “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? 8 Say I these things as a man? or saith not the law the same also? 9 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? 12 If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used 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.”

I Corinthians 16:1-2 “Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.”

II Corinthians 8:9-15 “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. 10 And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago. 11 Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have. 12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not. 13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened: 14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality: 15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.”

II Corinthians 9:6-7 “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”

            I believe that for today, we are to give 100% to the service of The Lord Jesus Christ and that includes, by Love and without misgivings to provide for our Pastor, the Ministry, and for our fellow believers (brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ) and that includes more that just money, but our time and abilities. I do not believe a tray should be passed around to gather in money given, but I believe (my own opinion) that a box should be placed openly, where we can place our support without anyone being put on the spot or placed in a position of feeling guilty or pressed to give. Remember God wants A Cheerful Giver, and some people do not attend church for guilt of being unable to support with money.

            I also feel that no one should see or even be able to guess what one gives to the Ministry in fear of getting prideful or someone in The Ministry feeling that they need to keep that huge giver happy when possibly facing a issue between members of The Body of Christ.
Romans 2:11 “For there is no RESPECT of persons with God.”



Genesis 14:18-20 “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. 19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: 20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.”

Hebrews 7:2 “To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;”

            Abram (since he was not known as Abraham until Genesis 17) gave unto Melchizedek, before any Tithe was required of Israel.

Proverbs 3:9 “Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:”

Romans 15:26 “For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.”

            We are to help the poor that are lost, not just poor believers.
Galatians 2:10 “Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.”

            Ok, now some might question why I started out in what appears to be My disagreement in tithing (giving money to a Ministry) over what some preachers teach on this subject. I believe that whenever anyone teaches anything concerning God's Word, they need to support it with the proper Scripture in Context, or they should remain silent on the issue, for they will answer to God on everything they claim God said. I do hope I did not offend anyone, for it is not my intention, but Being a teacher/preacher of God's Word is not something one should take lightly.

            I will also say that I support the giving of money to the Ministry as part of our cheerful duty (It is not a tithe or an offering, according to the Old Testament tithes and offerings).

            Why preachers do not give the proper verses to support such money giving is a big question mark, perhaps they lack faith by not allowing God to provide, perhaps some just want your money and uses verses out of context to make you feel guilty to give them more money for their own selfish reasons/desires. There is no doubt many of both of these examples are plentiful, but there are also some that do not understand God's Word well enough to teach you properly, that is why you need to always go to The Scripture for yourself and see what God's Will is for you in this and all matters.

I Thessalonians 5:21 “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”

Repentance, What does it Mean???



            What does the word repentance mean to you?

Many people do not understand the meaning or the application for this word, which is why I am posting the Webster’s 1828 definition.

REPENT'ANCE, n.
1. Sorrow for any thing done or said; the pain or grief which a person experiences in consequence of the injury or inconvenience produced by his own conduct.
2. In theology, the pain, regret or affliction which a person feels on account of his past conduct, because it exposes him to punishment. This sorrow proceeding merely from the fear of punishment, is called legal repentance, as being excited by the terrors of legal penalties, and it may exist without an amendment of life.
3. Real penitence; sorrow or deep contrition for sin, as an offense and dishonor to God, a violation of his holy law, and the basest ingratitude towards a Being of infinite benevolence. This is called evangelical repentance, and is accompanied and followed by amendment of life.

            Truth = what? Truth is a fact that is directly based on a standard that we know to be correct, without error. Our standard for truth is and should only be based on God’s Word, not by any man or book that is written by a man.

            God preserved His Word in The King James Bible, This is our only Standard for what truth is. You need to remember this fact, God will hold us accountable for the Truth in His Word, and not based on what you think it means.

            You have read above in other study topics that The Gospel of Grace was entrusted to Paul, and it is only the Gospel of Grace that will save your soul.

            God chose to deal with Israel one way which included a gospel (good news) to prepare Israel for the promised Kingdom on earth, after God paused with His dealing with Israel, God chose to stop dealing with an earthly focus with Israel and to deal with the entire world with something completely new. This new way God deals with mankind has a heavenly focus, and God gave the world a new/different gospel, and that Gospel of Grace is not the same Gospel that was spoken of in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and early Acts by Peter and the other disciples that preached the Kingdom Gospel. Peter knew only The Gospel of the Kingdom, so that is the Gospel he preached.

            The Gospel that saves you today was not know until God gave this new revelation to Paul that Israel was no longer above all nations/people and God placed mankind with a new focus/purpose and this new dealing with mankind included a new/different gospel from what God gave to Israel. Many people will not/ or chooses not to see this fact, even when God clearly shows that His Word must be rightly divided and that includes the Gospels found in His Word. We need to understand the information that is written to us, and separate what was written to the nation of Israel.

           Today we are under The Gospel of Grace, seen in I Corinthians 15:1-4
Remember Israel was given The Gospel of the Kingdom to prepare Israel for the earthly promise of a physical kingdom on Earth.
Matthew 3:1-6 “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, 6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.”

Luke 3:2-3 “Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. 3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;”

Matthew 4:17-23 “From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. 21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. 22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him. 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.”

Matthew 10:5-7 “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

John the Baptist’s Ministry, Jesus Christ’s Earthly Ministry, and The Ministry of the 12:
(1) Were all directed to Israel,
(2) It included repentance (Which does not save anyone),
(3) Confessing their sins,
(4) Water baptism (why you ask? Because they were to be priests of Israel),
and all their ministries spoke out that The kingdom of heaven is at hand. (This is an Earthly Kingdom which will last 1,000 years)

            Now compare Paul’s message (good news) that God wanted us today to hear. Our Gospel does not mention repentance, water baptism, or confessing of sins, or asking for forgiveness of our sins. Our Gospel is clear, we acknowledge our sin debt, we acknowledge that Jesus Died for our sin debt, Jesus was buried, Jesus rose from the dead to justify us before God, that is our Gospel which will bring salvation to your soul if you trust it, you will be sealed forever with God in heavenly places.

I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

            Many people today believe that repentance is an ingredient that is required for Salvation from Eternal Separation from God, others say that repentance is a work, and if you include any works to what Jesus Christ did, then you did not accept The Free Gift, for you tried to pay for it yourself and you denied Jesus Christ from paying the complete cost and that attempt to pay for your Salvation (even a small portion) hinders your Salvation by not relying entirely on Jesus Christ alone for payment for your Sins.

            I already posted above what Repentance is, but now I will state what Repentance is not.
Repentance is not asking for forgiveness of your sins.
Repentance is not turning away from your sins for salvation.
Repentance is not God forgiving you of your sins.
Repentance is not speaking or saying a sinner’s prayer.
Repentance is not walking an aisle in your local church building.

            In Conclusion:
(1) Are you sorry for believing that your works will save you?
(2) Are you now aware that only Jesus Christ’s Payment will atone for your sin debt?

            Both points are examples of repentance, (1) being sorry and (2) later changing you belief to understand that you can not in any way pay for your sins on you own, and that only Jesus Christ can pay for your sin debt.
            You must accept the Free Gift (trust the Gospel of Grace) to become saved. People will repent when they realize that whatever they knew previously will not save them, and they finally see what The Gospel is, for repentance in itself does not do anything, but it can describe your being sorry and deciding to change what you believe previously to now accepting the truth, that The Gospel must be believed/trusted for your Salvation and Jesus Christ paid the entire cost.

I Corinthians 15:1-4 “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

To Correct, To Rebuke



Galatians 6:1 “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.”
II Timothy 4:1-4 “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Titus 2:11-15 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.”
I Corinthians 5:6-13 “Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.”
I Timothy 5:19-21 “Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. 20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 21 I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.”

            No one (pastors, elders, etc) is above rebuke, if someone is living or speaking contrary to God's Word, we are responsible to correct them and rebuke them with Scripture from The King James Bible.
*** Note*** Correction is not the same as judging them, God is the only Judge and God has given us what He says is right and what is wrong written in His Word the King James Bible.

I Corinthians 2:5 “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

            Let God's Word be the FINAL AUTHORITY in All Things. In Ecclesiastes it shows us how to please God.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

            Though we are not under the requirement to follow the commandments (The Law that Moses was to give to Israel to follow). God’s Word can still show us what is pleasing to God.

Ephesians 2:8-10 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

Titus 3:7-8 “That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.”

Beware of Magic



Leviticus 19:31 “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”

Leviticus 20:27 “A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.”

            God makes it clear of what He thought of them that used magic and sought after unclean spirits, for example in seances, voodoo and in any other method (runes, ouija boards, etc) that one tries to gain knowledge through witchcraft.

Ephesians 5:11 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

Deuteronomy 18:9-12 “When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”

            People watching or reading sci-fi or fantasy, should seriously think about abandoning doing so for children can be easily influenced and too often children will allow what they read or watch on TV to be a pattern that they want to follow. Parents that let your children watch or read anything that contains magic should stop them from doing so and teach them why it is wrong, remember children will daydream or fantasize that they are doing magic, and that can lead to them actually trying to do real magic, which is very much against what God would have us to do.

            Remember that God treats those who practice magic as an abomination, it is easy to pretend that as long as we do not believe it, it is ok to watch it. I am not immune, I grew up and lived over 20 years loving the sci-fi and fantasy genre, Far above any other, but God makes it clear performing witchcraft is wrong, and we should be careful of it seeping into our minds, or giving the example that magic is ok. I ask that if anyone who reads this and think that magic is ok, to read God’s Word and pray for the truth for yourself. Children can be at stake, and if we let them watch it or show that it is ok by doing so ourselves it can give them the impression that magic (witchcraft) is ok.

Ephesians 5:11 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

I Thessalonians 5:22 “Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

Questions to ask while Searching for a ChurchHome



            Are you searching for a Church Home or unsure of the one you are currently attending? You will need to first pray for guidance in this and all other matters that you face on a daily basis. God wants us to pray daily, and I believe in part it is for us to remember Him in all things, for how can you forget about God, if you pray to Him everyday.

            When you find a church, it is always good to have a talk with the pastor to see what that particular church teaches and what authority that church has on Bible Doctrine. God can be the only authority and that can be seen only in God’s Word (The King James Bible).

            I will list a few important questions one should address, but in all things search the scriptures and pray for the guidance to know how to proceed in searching for a good church home, for God would not have us to compromise His Word for our fellowship purposes.

(1) Does the church have a stand on the King James Bible?
(2) How is Salvation attained, and can it be lost?
(3) Does the church teach to rightly divide? (teaching about dispensations)
(4) Does the church stand on traditions of men, which are not scripturally based?
(5) Does the church teach on various topics that might offend? This can be members of the congregation or even visitors.

            Remember God clearly speaks out on many things in His Word and since God declares so many things that people like to do are in fact unpleasant in His sight, it can and will offend most people. Many churches do not want to talk about things that offend: sodomy, fornication, evolution, female pastors, family structure, bible translations, abortion, capital punishment and many other topics.

           Granted that these are not all of the questions one can ask, but these are important ones with perhaps others that you will need to ask about prior to attending a church.

In all things pray to God for the guidance and be patient to let God lead you to where He wants you to be.

            “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:5-7) “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” (Colossians 3:17)

Pastor Requirements



            It is good to know while searching for a church to join, or if one is thinking about becoming a pastor, to what God says about the subject on pastor requirments and what criteria a pastor (steward or bishop) should have.

I Corinthians 2:5 “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

            This verse is important for everyone, but a pastor must be teaching about God from The King James Bible and not from what he or the majority of people believes to be true. REMEMBER God's Word is our final authority and is of NO private interpretation.

II Peter 1:20 “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”

I Corinthians 4:2 “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.”

I Timothy 3:1-7 “This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.”

Titus 1:6-9 “If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. 7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; 8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; 9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers”

            Some people believe that pastors can be women, but among the many requirements that Paul spoke of that a bishop should have, he was very clear about this. A man, a husband of one wife, makes it in no way possible for a woman to be a pastor.

            Pastors should also live what he preaches and try to set an example to those he teaches to.

I Corinthians 9:14 “Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.”

I Thessalonians 5:22 “Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

            A good pastor guides and teaches the congregation by example and with meekness, and with humility, for Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church. ,“even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.” (Ephesians 5:23b)

            Pastors need to seek the position of a pastor if they are called and preach for the love of Christ which is within them and spread the good news (The Gospel that Paul was given in I Corinthians 15:1-4) in the hope that others will trust how Jesus Christ died for their sins. Pastors should not do so thinking of it as a job or desire to become rich from doing so.

Titus 1:7 “For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;”

The Price Jesus Christ Paid



John 1:1,14 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

I Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

Colossians 2:6-9 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”

            Jesus Christ is God, The Entire Triune Godhead is complete in Him. One of the attributes of God is that God lives outside of our understanding of time. God is Infinite.

Revelation 1:5,8 “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

II Corinthians 5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Ephesians 5:2 “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”

Mark 15:34 “And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

Hebrews 2:9 “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.”

            Jesus Christ Wants us Saved and Died for us, not only did He become sin, He then paid the price of our sin and went to Hell. Jesus went to Hell, and we were the ones that deserved to go there. Remember Jesus Christ was without sin, and Jesus had to go to Hell to pay for our sin debt, but that is only part of what Jesus Christ went through.

            Jesus stepped down from His Glory in Heaven, to become flesh, and walk among us knowing that He would be faced with His creation cursing Him and spitting on Him and finally crucifying Him upon a Cross. That alone would be a high price, but that was not all He had to endure. God The Father turned His back on Jesus Christ in Mark 15:34.
Why you ask? …… Because Jesus became the sin of the world. Jesus did this to pay the price, to redeem us from our fate as sinful beings. Jesus Christ became that which is an affront to God. The Father and no doubt The Holy Ghost also turned from Jesus Christ during that time when Jesus was on the cross as the SIN OF THE WORLD, and until sin was removed from Jesus Christ that was a part of what Jesus did for you. Jesus Christ paid a price that we were unable to do ourselves.

Jesus did not stay in Hell, after He completed His task, He rose from death and ascended to The Father.

That was not all of it either, for God is infinite remember. In II Peter 3:8 it states “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (II Peter 3:8)

            What does that mean? God lives outside of our concept of time, God is here now, but He is also here a thousand years ago, and He is a million years in the future. He is in all times at once, to understand it for ourselves, that would mean The Price He paid is something He did once, in our understanding of time, but is forever in His time. That is how He was able to pay our sin debt.

            We can pay our sin debt ourselves and us being a finite being it will be for an infinity (FOREVER) or we can trust what Jesus Christ has already paid. Remember Jesus Christ is an Infinite Being (living in all of our Times, at once in His Time). Jesus paid for our sins for a finite amount of time, which ocurred on earth some two thousand years ago (in our time).

Romans 6:23 “ For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

            Do not forget that Jesus Christ paid for our sin debt already.

Colossians 1:13-14 “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”

Ephesians 1:7 “ In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;”

            Jesus Christ paid it all, there is nothing you can do.
Please if you have not yet trusted in Jesus Christ’s payment for your sin debt, do it today. God loves you more than you can understand or even write about. God’s Love is a truth that is as Forever as we are. Our soul is forever and we choose to either live with God forever with Him or we choose to live apart from God for just as long (ETERNITY).

Being Thankful and Content



Colossians 3:15 “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”

            Granted I have not lived as many years as some, but even I have noticed a great deal of change from my early teenage years to now (over 25 years). I have noticed that many people are not thankful for what they have and for that matter do not even realize they have it so good compared to over 90% of the world's population. Technology is getting better every day, and improvements in our living condition (in the U.S at least) it is always better than years prior. I am writing some of the things I am thankful of and I want you to think on some of the things that your are thankful for.

God's Gift of Salvation
God's Word (The King James Bible)
The Mercy / Blessings of God
Currently a country that allows freedom to express / witness my beliefs in God
My wife that I love very much
Indoor Plumbing
Electricity
Grocery stores
My health
A job, to support my family
Family / Friends / Church (Which Today is The Body of Christ)

Philippians 4:11 “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”

            Have you noticed people, or yourself striving so hard for things that you do not need? We should be thankful and content to have an opportunity to witness of Jesus Christ and be happy that we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads, everything else is extra and not needed (nice to have, I grant you BUT NOT NEEDED). There are churches in foreign countries that have nothing, the people have nothing, yet we have so many riches, that we are not even aware of them. We have money to buy boats, motorcycles, extra cars, two houses, luxurious trips, big screen tv's, etc and etc. We have been given everything from God and we need to be content in whatever state we are in and be thankful for all the things that God has given to us. We should not be unhappy if we do not have something, that someone you know has. We should not covet anything that another has. Be Content, Be Thankful. God has been Very Good to us!

I Timothy 6:6-11 “But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9 But they that will 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.”

            Jesus Christ is always with us and will never leave us, we need nothing else to make us content.

Family Structure



            God has instructed us how a family is to be founded and the roles each in that family has.

Psalm 127:1 “Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”

I Corinthians 3:11 “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

            The entire Family should be founded on Jesus Christ, if it is founded on anything else it will not be sound and will eventually fail. The roles of the family will be addressed separately.

Husbands:
(1) Head of the House. Ephesians 5:23a “For the husband is the head of the wife,”
(2) Love you wife. Ephesians 5:25a “Husbands, love your wives,”
(3) Do not be bitter towards your wife. Colossians 3:19 “Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.”

Wives:
(1) Submit yourself to your husband. Ephesians 5:22 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.”
(2) Subject yourself to your husband. Ephesians 5:24 “Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.”
(3) Reverence your husband. Ephesians 5:33b ; “and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”

Husbands and wives:
(1) Submit yourselves to each other. Ephesians 5:21 “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.”
(2) Render due benevolence to each other. I Corinthians 7:3 “Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.”
(3) Do not hold back from each other. I Corinthians 7:4-5 “The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.”

Fathers:
(1) Do not provoke your children to wrath. Ephesians 6:4 “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”
(2) Do not provoke your children to anger. Colossians 3:21 “Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.”

Children:
(1) Obey your parents. Ephesians 6:1-2 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;”
Colossians 3:20 “Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.”

The Family:
Do everything in the name of The Lord.
Colossians 3:17 “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
Ephesians 5:20 “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”
Colossians 3:23 “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;”

            There is a lot more said about the family in God's Word, but it is clear that the family needs to be founded on God, and Love and consideration should be given to all within the family.

Wisdom or Folly



            What is wisdom? Depending on your belief in The Bible and God, your answer will vary, since Man’s Wisdom varies a great deal from actual Truth revealed from God. Wisdom is also gained by being Saved/a Believer in The Gospel, for you will have The Holy Spirit to teach you Scripture, for God said that most of His Word (and His Word is Truth), is beyond the understanding of unbelievers due to being spiritually discerned.

Romans 8:5 “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.”

I Corinthians 2:10-14 “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

            The natural man of verse 14 is refering to all mankind that is spiritually dead (all that have yet to trust that Jesus Christ's died for their sins).
Man is composed of spirit, soul, and body/flesh. At physical birth our spirit is dead and is quickened (made alive) when we trust The Gospel where Jesus Christ died for Our Sins was buried and arose on the third day for our justification.

            Too often I have heard that mankind has achieved so much knowledge (science) and anything that contradicts that science must be wrong, for example evolution and the age of the earth in billions of years are just a couple of the examples I can come up with. I am posting verses that will show you what God has written to us on the matter of wisdom and how it may be gained, and why God has kept wisdom from mankind (those who have turned away from God as their source of authority in all things).

Job 28:28 “And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.”

Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Proverbs 2:1-6 “My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; 2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; 3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; 4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; 5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.”

Proverbs 3:5-7 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.”

I Corinthians 1:18-31 “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”

I Corinthians 3:18-20 “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.”

Romans 1:22 “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,”

Ephesians 5:17 “Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.”

Proverbs 3:11-13 “My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. 13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.”

            God gives us wisdom and understanding that goes far beyond what we (mankind) can understand on our own. We must submit to God's will and follow His Word for us to achieve wisdom. To accept our knowledge over God's is pure foolishness.

Psalm 118:8 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”

Romans 3:3-4 “For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”

Psalm 19:7 “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.”

II Corinthians 10:12 “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”

We Can Face Anything with God on our Side



            “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” (Ephesians 6:10-18) “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31) “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:13)

            We at times can get so caught up in our lives, that we forget that God is always with us and God is enough, and God allows us to handle anything and everything that troubles us in the world today.

Philippians 4:5-7 “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

            We need not to worry about anything, for God will help us to deal with whatever we face, for we might be limited, but with God All Things are Possible.

Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”

Unconditional Love



Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.”

            Christians are to Love everyone, and live a life that God wants us to live. Love without conditions, love even when it may be easier to walk away in anger or to become upset and lash out at people. It is difficult at times when people do not behave towards us as we would like them to. It is even harder to love someone who hates us and wishes to do us harm, but God makes it clear how to treat our enemies. I know that Luke and even James is not written to us, but The Whole Bible is for our learning and some doctrines are truths, which are valid in all Dispensations.

Luke 6:27-28 “But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.”

            God wants us to treat those who hate us with love, so we should be even more careful to be loving, understanding, and patient with our family and friends. There are times when we do not think of how our statements effects others, and there are some who are more sensitive and are prone to be hurt from what people say in what they believe to be a joking manner. If you are aware of someone that is sensitive, then you need to be more careful of how you joke around, give advice, give constructive criticism, or in any other mode of communication towards them. Do not become unthoughtful or uncaring with your communication with your friends, family or your enemies, if you are not sure if something you say will hurt someone, then you should reconsider saying it.

James 1:19-20 “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.”

Galatians 6:1-2 “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”

Luke 6:27-37 “But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also. 30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. 36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. 37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:”

Works for Today



            First off we will look at a verse from the Old Testament to see a bit of wisdom God taught us.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”

            This is good wisdom. God told us in II Timothy 2:15 to rightly divide the Word of Truth (King James Bible) to be a workman that is not ashamed. Today we are not under the Law that Israel was given to follow, nor do we live in the times where works are required in addition to Faith. God shows us how to study and through study we find out what purpose works have for us today.

I Corinthians 3:11-15 “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”

II Timothy 2:19-21 “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.”

            In I Corinthians chapter 3 it speaks of works when builded upon a certain foundation, would either remain or be burnt up. That Foundation spoken of is this: JESUS CHRIST. If you are saved, then you will either have your works remain or you will lose them, according to whether they are works you did for God, or if they were for yourself.

Defintion of godly works / works for God = (1) Works pleasant in God’s sight, (2) Works that you do because God wants you to behave a certain way, (3) Works you know will not in any way get you saved and (4) Works you do not do as a means to promote yourself to others in how righteous you are in comparison to them.
            In II Timothy chapter 2 it speaks of works in a different light. If your works are godly you will please God and those godly works will make you a vessel of gold or silver, and you being that vessel of gold or silver would be of honour in the The Great House of our Lord.

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

            Let us look at Scripture to show us what benefits works are to us today. We already saw what benefits it would do for us in Heaven. Today our works are good for a testimony to others, as well as you will hopefully remember our works today are pleasant in the sight of God (Our Saviour).

Titus 3:8,14 “This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men. 14 And let our's also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.”

Romans 12:1-2 “beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

            A reasonable service, it says for us to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, doing that which pleases God. We are Temples of God, for after Salvation we become Sealed with The Holy Spirit and God resides forever with us and in us.

            Ok, we have seen how we will be given rewards, for our godly works on earth today that remains (works = the gold, silver, or precious stone variety). We saw that living for God and not ourselves is a reasonable service and we are to present our bodies (vessels) to be acceptable unto God. How we do this is how we decide to offer ourselves to God, either as vessels of honour or of dishonour. The time we have is limited, for once you die your time to please God in the flesh is over and you have no idea how long you will be here for. Remember the time here on earth is but a moment compared to the time we will live after our current fleshly bodies stop breathing.

II Corinthians 4:17 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;”


            More on what God did for us. God is the best reason for us to do works that would please Him, for we should want to do things for Him and not for ourselves.

I Corinthians 6:15-20 “Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.”

Romans 8:15-19 “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.”

            God bought us out of Hell, for Jesus Christ paid a debt, we are not able to pay, and allowed us to become sons of God. YES, God adopts us into His Family and we are no longer in the family of Adam. Once we trust Jesus Christ’s Gift of Salvation, we are forever God’s and God is forever our’s. That is news almost as good as Salvation itself, to be accepted forever as family to God. WOW!!! That is a great reason to want to please God by our godly works, but even more so we should allow our Gift of Salvation to be seen by others, as in Titus chapter 3 we should allow God to be seen in our actions, to allow others to see what God can do for them.

II Corinthians 4:5-11 “For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 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. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.”

II Corinthians 5:17-21 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Obey Authorities



            Many today may have different views on how our government should be run, whether or not they like the present president, etc and etc. This study will only address to how we should respond to that government that God allowed to be over us.

Titus 3:1 “Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,”

            It is also good and pleasing to God to not only obey those in authority over us, but we are to pray for them as well. We need to pray for them even if we do not agree with them on all things. Remember we ought to obey the laws of our state and nation. (Example we should pay our taxes)

I Timothy 2:1-3 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;”

Doctrines and NO Compromises



Romans 16:17-18 “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

Colossians 2:6-8 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

            Many people today either do not hold to doctrines, or they compromise doctrines to accommodate others in order to not make waves or because they believe that it is ok to let some things slide in order to get along with our fellow believers in Christ. Know that God wants you to first be aware of His doctrines that are found in God's Word (The King James Bible), and once you learn them, God wants you to follow them without compromising to the world, or to churches that do not hold to sound Bible Doctrine.

II Timothy 4:1-4 “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

Titus 2:1-8 “But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. 3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. 6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. 7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, 8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.”

I Corinthians 1:10 “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment”

I Corinthians 11:18-19 “For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19 For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.”

            If you think that doctrines are not important, or it is ok to continue to associate yourselves with others (church you attend, friends you spend a regular amount of time with, etc..) that do not hold onto sound doctrines it tells God that you do not want to live your life completely for God. If you are promoting / standing up for worldly views while compromising God’s Word, then you have told God that you want to live for yourself over living for God. God wants us to separate ourselves from the world and the views / thoughts that are contrary to His Word rightly divided.

II Thessalonians 3:13-15 “But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.”

I Thessalonians 5:21-22 “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

            So once you know that God wants you to behave a certain way and to disassociate yourself from those who believe contrary to God's Word, you have a choice to make. If you choose to live life your way, then your choice to follow man’s will over God’s Will is a purposely and deliberate rebellion against God. People may decide to go along with the crowd or follow along because they do not know differently, but it is your responsibility to study God's Word and to search out the truths of how God wants you to live.

            Once you understand how God wants you to live, you are to live it, REGARDLESS of what others say, REGARDLESS if you are criticized, attacked, or persecuted in your church, at home, or in your workplace. God does not care if others (your family, friends, or whomever) are not happy with you when you decide to live for Him. Jesus Christ stated in Matthew of a truth that we can apply for today, and that when you follow God and stand up without compromising, it can effect those around you who do not know or care to live for God 100%.

Matthew 10:34-39 “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”

            Now, if you allow your church to remain divided over doctrines and if you continue to not stand up for the truth of God's Word, REGARDLESS of how you may be received, then like Jesus Christ said to the Pharisees in Matthew, A house divided shall not stand. Please do not allow our churches to get any worse. Stand up for God's Word and stand by it, no matter the cost. It is better to be a few that hold onto God’s Word, then to be part of the many that follow man’s folly.

Matthew 12:25 “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:”

Galatians 5:25 “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

Doctrinal Statement of SavedbyChrist



            Doctrines are very important, and it is a good thing to know what teachers of God's Word stand on the various doctrines of the Bible and why. All verses used on this website are from The King James Bible and if any mistakes are found on this website, the mistakes are the administrator's of this website alone, for God's Word is perfect and you should always allow God and His Word to be your Final Authority. The author of this website (Nathan Spinazzolo) graduated from Bible College in the summer of 2011, but has had an online ministry since the year 2000, and the author seeks to always stand on God’s Word rightly divided and would fall under what some would call The Grace Movement / Mid-Acts Pauline / Ministry of “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:” (Romans 16:25-26)



I.
[A] Salvation is by the Grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9) and not by any merit that man can do on their own.
[B] Salvation is a free Gift from God (Romans 5:15-21) that Jesus Christ has offered to all mankind by living a perfect (sinless) life, dying on the Cross, being buried, and Arising up three days later for our Justification. (I Corinthians 15:1-4 and Romans 4:25)
[C] Salvation comes by trusting (Ephesians 1:13) that we are sinners and that Jesus Christ saved us from our sins, and of course being sincere in that belief.
(I Corinthians 15:2).
[D] Salvation is eternally (Forever) secure, for God seals us at the quickening of our spirit with the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 1:13 and Ephesians 4:30)

II.
God's Word is the Authorized Version (better known as the King James Bible) for all other English translations have omitted, added, or changed part of verses, or deleted entire verses of God's Word.
God has made it clear (Revelation 22:18-19) to how important it is for people to NOT alter His Word. God is The Author of The Bible by inspiring / moving various writers through the Holy Ghost to write God’s Word exactly how God wanted it to be written. (II Timothy 3:16 and II Peter 1:21)
God Preserved His Word as He promised. (Matthew 24:35, Isaiah 59:21, and Psalm 12:6-7).
The King James Bible, is our Final Authority to know how to live and is of NO private interpretation, it is infallible and inerrant. (II Peter 1:20)

III.
Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus was born fully man, but was ALWAYS and FOREVER will be Fully God.
In Addition I will add, to counter what some have started to believe, Jesus Christ NEVER gave up any Attribute of God, at any time during His Earthly Ministry. (Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:27-35, and John 1:1-14) (Hebrews 9:14 with Genesis 22:8)

IV.
There is only one God, and that one God exists in three persons.
[1]The Father [2] The Word, or The Son, who is Jesus Christ [3] The Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost.
God created all things that were created and nothing was created that was not created by Him. (Isaiah 44:24, Isaiah 45:5-22, John 1:3 and I John 5:7)

V.
All mankind are sinners and will continue to have our old nature (The Flesh), even after we are saved by trusting in Jesus Christ's payment for our sin debt, the old nature of ours will always war with our new nature (spiritual quickening by The Holy Spirit). (Romans 3:23)(Galatians 5:17 and Romans 7:23).

VI.
Rightly dividing God's Word. (II Timothy 2:15 and I Corinthians 12:5-6)
I agree in Dispensations and properly placing the appropriate doctrines and truths in their proper places.
I believe that God dealt with mankind with either: (1) An earthly focus (or purpose) that had promise with prophecy or (2) A heavenly focus (or purpose) which was kept secret since the world began {The Mystery was revealed to Paul to give to us}. I would follow under Mid-Acts Pauline Dispensational.

VII.
Water Baptism is something that I once believed in, growing up as a Baptist, but I can no longer pretend that a tradition of man, that pulls a doctrine from a previous Dispensation, is valid for today. The priests of Israel needed to be water baptized, that is why the Kingdom Gospel directed to Israel included it. All of Israel will become priests and will need to be water baptized. (Exodus 19:5-6)
The Apostle Paul clearly states that he was not sent to Water Baptize, so if it was something that we were required to follow The Apostle Paul would not have told us that he was not sent to baptize. (I Corinthians 1:17)
Some would argue that Paul did in fact write of water baptism. In all cases found in Romans to Philemon (Paul’s Epistles) you would have to put water in them yourselves, for Paul was speaking of spiritual baptism in the following places: (Romans 6:4, Ephesians 4:5, Colossians 2:12, Galatians 3:27, and I Corinthians 12:13)
In Acts Paul did in fact water baptize some, but it was before God revealed to him that he was to not water baptize. ( I Corinthians 1:17) Paul had progressive revelation, and after Paul knew he was not to water baptize, he stopped, and focused on preaching the Gospel {Which did not include water baptism}.

VIII.
We are to live by Faith, not Sight for today. (II Corinthians 5:7 and Hebrews 11:1)
I do not agree with Speaking in Tongues, Laying of Hands to heal, God talking to us in Dreams, or any other method that one claims to be from God today.
God's Word (The King James Bible) is The Only communication from God in This Dispensation.

IX.
Existence of Satan, The Devil. Satan, once called Lucifer had / has great power among / over the angels, but his desire to be God and to supplant God caused his downfall and many other angels followed him, which are now called devils or unclean spirits. Those angelic beings are far more powerful than us, but those fallen angelic beings are doomed to Hell (Hell will later empty into the Lake of Fire) just as we, mankind, who rejects Christ and the Gift that He offered freely to all.
We are to resist The Devil and his minions by putting on the armor of God and relying on God alone to protect us from The Devil. (Isaiah 14:12-15, Revelation 12:9-11, and Ephesians 6:11-12)

X.
The Next Coming of Jesus Christ will be His return in the air, Jesus Christ will take His Saints, The Body of Christ / believers in The Gospel of Grace, with Him to Heaven at the time of being caught up “The Rapture”
The Tribulation, will occur when this Dispensation of Grace is completed, when The Body of Christ is Caught up, then God will return to dealing with Israel. Christians of Today will not go through the Tribulation, for we were spared of the wrath to come, Jesus Christ will come again to Israel and it will occur when Jesus Christ's feet touch the ground, and then reigns as King in Jerusalem for the 1000 year Kingdom spoken of in Revelation. (I Thessalonians 4:16-18, I Thessalonians 5:9, Zeachariah 14:1-4 and I Thessalonians 1:10)

XI.
The Souls of all believers will at the death of their body, go directly to be with God immediately at death. (II Corinthians 5:6-8 and Philippians 1:23-24)

XII.
All Christians are ambassadors of Christ. We are all to witness of the Good News (The Gospel of Grace) of Salvation through Jesus Christ [the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ] to all around us. (II Corinthians 5:20 and I Corinthians 15:1-4)

My Testimony



            Hello and God Bless to all who are reading this. I want to thank everyone that is in the search for the truth about God’s Word. Truth about God's Word is the second most important thing on this earth, next to trusting The Gospel for Salvation. Jesus Christ's Free gift of Salvation is offered to everyone today, for no one will be denied if you place your trust in The Gospel that God gave to Paul to give to us.

            My name is Nathan Spinazzolo and I was born October 30, 1974 in Zanesville Ohio. I currently live in Crestview Florida, but I was raised in Ohio and lived there until I moved to North Carolina in February of 1998. It was in I believe May of 2003, that I met a young man that helped change my life for the better. Matthew Edwards was only 18 at the time and I was 28, a 10 year gap which can be pretty large these days in both differences that we had and the relating due to that age gap. We had a common thread that brought us close, and that thread is that we were both Christians, and we both were wanting to go into the field of ministry for God.
            Matthew and I did not have a lot of time together, no more than 6 months before he was called home on October 31, 2003. I met Matthew where I worked and it was there that we first talked and realized our shared brotherhood, and from that time we started to have Bible study, a couple times a week up to 10-12 hours a week, discussing and searching the scriptures for the truth, not what man or pastors proclaimed to be true. Matthew was a young man who turned 19 while I knew him and though he was young, he brought so much to the world. Matthew was a good friend, but more so he was a strong Christian man, zealous to serve God and he influenced all those around him for the better, God used Matthew in Life and in Death to help others know of Jesus Christ. I will never forget Matthew and the influence he had on me. Matthew was my first, true Christian friend and Bible study with him was the highlight of my week, he had so much energy and motivation to serve God that I could only wish to come close to his level of energy for God. Emory Matthew Edwards was born September 3rd 1984 and was called home to be with God on October 31st 2003. Matthew was an inspiration to me and to others around him, and like the Apostle Paul, in life or in death Jesus Christ was magnified with Matthew, and I am a far better person by knowing him.


Emory Matthew Edwards


            The following year (2004) was tough for me and as I was getting over the loss of my friend, I lost my grandmother on June 27th and then my mother within 3 weeks of my grandmother passing. I used to call my mother for words of comfort or wisdom, to which she always provided with a large dose of Love, and though she went home to be with the Lord on July 17th 2004, she is and will always be an inspiration to me. My mother was the reason I went to church when I was little, and though it was Jesus Christ that saved me, it was my mother who introduced God to me at an early age, I became saved at age 6 or 7. I did not understand a lot at that age, but yes I was able to understand that God existed, and God required us to trust in Him for our salvation. Sin is easily understood as being wrong, and any two or three year old knows when they are in trouble, so understanding that sin is something that God says is wrong is not that difficult to grasp.Water baptism on the other hand can be tricky, I was taught in the church I grew up at least, that it was only a visible sign for others that you were in fact saved.

This visible sign is like declaring aloud you are saved, which opens up another can of trouble: Romans 10:9-10 is written by Paul to The Body of Christ about how Israel had to get saved (Read Romans 10:1 very closely with the rest of the chapter). Anyways I have found out that many a Baptist churches teach that water baptism is required, or a audible declaration is needed for salvation. SALVATION does not require any work, and if you think it does, you are lost.


            Ok, back to my Testimony, the age of 10, when my parents got divorced, it was an impressionable and difficult time in my life. Any time in a child's life is impressionable, but more so when your family is split in two. I went through a very difficult time and I started to blame my mother, and that being said was the main reason during my teen years and into my early 20's, my church participation was minimal to none. I am not blaming anyone but myself, but the fact was that for many years I did not live a life focused on God. I went astray from the path that I should have walked, due to that absence of godly fellowship and my lack of wanting to live as God stated that I should have lived (Obedient to my mother among other things). I still witnessed about God to others, but I admit I compromised a lot, and did so too often. When I was 27, I started to think more deeply about God’s Word because I had a co-worker that went to a church with a much different biblical doctrine to what I had learned and believed up to that point and we had many discussions that I found to be greatly in opposition to what I held to be true and in fact much was contrary to God’s Word even with my co-worker using the King James Bible.
            Granted I knew little depth of the Bible at that time and never thought I might go into the ministry, but I wanted to find out the truth about God’s Word. Initially, I called my mother, for she was to that time the backbone of my Christian fellowship, and asked questions and she told me what she thought on the matter and suggested to me that I read the Bible myself for a better understanding on my own. I admit again that I have read very little and remembered less than I should growing up in the church, but, I started to read and pray for the understanding of what I was reading and that lead me to where I am today.
            I found out a lot of things that I do not remember ever hearing about in church, I guess I could have missed it, but some of what I discovered were BIG, and I was feeling somewhat cheated that God's Word was not being taught, in fact I did not know that some bibles are in fact NOT God’s Word.

            God's Word (The King James Bible) was not being discussed with people of the congregation and the big differences that other translations had were huge, and in fact it cleared up some misconceptions that I had at that time. The other important item I learned was just as important if not more so and that important information that I learned was that Dispensations existed. The realization that God dealt with Israel one way, and The Body of Christ another explained why I was confused over what I thought was conflicts in the Bible. Those two major doctrines: (1) The King James Bible is God's Word where all other English translations are corrupt, and (2) That God dealt with mankind differently within The Bible really started me to want to know more and more of what God's Word really said and not what I was taught or believed to be true prior to that point.
            God used my co-worker and my inability to answer some Bible questions, augmented by me being ashamed of not being able to explain some of the most important things in my Life (God’s Word). I then started on a road to discover more truth of what God's Word really says and it was a little time later when I felt like I was being called to the ministry. To share the truth of the good news of Jesus Christ is important, and to start that path was the beginning of living my life for God while denying my own carnal (fleshly) desires to do otherwise.

            I would like to point out that even though the Indepentent Baptist church I attended when I was little, did not teach about the King James Bible or teach about the Dispensations within The Bible that needs to be rightly divided. The Baptist church I went to did teach enough for salvation. It was not a clear Gospel message, since they and many today still think the Gospel that saves us today can be found in Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John.
            The church I went to taught that Jesus Christ Died for your sins, that Jesus Christ was buried, and Jesus Christ arose the third day for my justification. The Gospel was taught, but it was at times confusing, for much was taught that was wrong, like walking the aisle or asking Jesus into your heart. I can see why so many could have been confused to what all the church taught, and believe me not all was accurate. Today and back then, I have found out that too many different churches exist, and they all have their own belief system to what God said.

            God does not then or ever will need anyone to correct Him. God’s Word is perfect and God is not the author of confusion. If you are confused then it is on your part to why. You either are Lost and need to be saved, or you are saved and unwilling to allow God’s Word to show you the truth. People will read a verse and argue that it is not what God meant. Is the god you have that weak?

My God (The God of the King James Bible, and you will not find another God anywhere else) claimed that He is perfect and Said that He does not lie, and said that He would / not maybe preserve His Word.
            Many people who go to church believe they are saved, when in fact they do not believe The Gospel. They think they are under the Law for salvation, where God made it clear that it was given to Israel to follow.If you believe that you must work for your salvation, or believe that water baptism is a part of getting saved, then you are in fact lost. If you have not trusted in The Gospel, I mean realize that God did everything for you to be justified, then you are going to Hell. I am not able to say that any nicer, for ignorance will not get you into Heaven, there is no get out of Hell Free card. I hope you can understand this truth, I would be doing you a great wrong if I did not state this as plainly as I can. You must believe (sincerely) what God gave to Paul to tell us in Paul’s Epistles alone, Trust The Gospel of Grace for your salvation.

            “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:1-4) “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,” (Ephesians 1:13)

            I will not go into details of all that I did while living a life for myself with some God thrown in at times, but I will tell you that going through life that way messed me up. I was unhappy while I was doing it and though I did witness to others about God and Salvation, I was a bad testimony to others.


            Today I want to preach The Gospel and share with everyone that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Saviour and I am not ashamed or a bit hesitant to tell you or anyone else of what God wrote to us in His Word (The King James Bible). Repetition is the best teacher, and I have made it very clear on this website, that God’s Word is important if you want to know what God said. You do not need anyone to tell you what God messed up, you do not need to wait for an older manuscript to be found, you do not need to find someone who speaks gibberish, to take your money from you in order to know what God has written to you.
            I care only to what God thinks about me and I have lost and /or greatly strained relationships with friends and family members over this, but I will not deny God’s Word to make people happy. I know that I am not always right, and if I write anything or say anything about God's Word, I will post verses or list Scripture to back it up. If I say that it is my opinion or it is speculation on my part to what God wrote, I will usually quote Scripture to support why I believe that to be my opinion.

            God is always right, and God's Word is the only way God is communicating to us today, Let God be God. God's Word is our one and only Authority in life, God’s Word shows us how to live and we should all allow God and His Word alone to show us the truth in all things. You should pray for others and witness the truth of Jesus Christ to all those around you, and if someone is upset that you do that, then you might want to share the Gospel with that person to make sure that they understand what saved means. Ask them are you saved? And if they say yes, ask them why they think they are? If they cannot answer properly or if they say they are not saved, Witness the Gospel to them!!! Once saved always saved, but Lost is Lost forever!

            I am now 38 years old. I have finished Bible College last year (Summer of 2011), and I must say it is good to continue growing in Christ. I have recently published a book titled “Jesus Christ Wants You Saved” and it has a lot of what can be found on this website, it only covers Salvation and some Dispensationalism topics, but I had requests to get this website put in written form, so I finally was able to do that, and one day I hope to publish a second book to include the rest of this website including any other topics I might add from then.

            I wanted to let everyone know, that even though my book and most of this website is copyrighted, I have no problem with you printing off portions of it, providing you do not sell anything you print off from this website. I will provide a link both here and on the section nine link section to the amazon site for my book. It can be found on Barnes and Noble as well as many other places.


            One day I will be forever with God in Heavenly places and I pray that you will join me in The Body of Christ.

            God Bless and May God guide you in all things, and remember God is, so Be a Believer in both God and in God's Word. Trust The Gospel and trust His Word alone for you sole authority.

Website Summary




            I have posted some topics from other writers that in that particular topic alone, I believe can be helpful for you (I do not endorse all of their other beliefs, and in fact might disagree with them on a great many of them).

            Remember that all material is to help guide you to a better understanding of God's Word, but always use the King James Bible for your Final Authority on all things. I did not have a pastor that taught rightly dividing when I first started out and I had a NIV study bible that I read most, but it was through a great many hours studying and praying over dozens of writers on dozens of topics, and comparing the English translations that I eventually allowed God’s Word to be true and what I was taught earlier in life was in fact wrong. It takes study on your part, but God will reveal the truth to you when you sincerely pray for the understanding of His Word.

Sin of Nakedness



by Pastor Ronald W. Williams


When I was in Berlin a few years ago, I was traveling on the underground commuter train with American missionary Paul Hooper who was my host. I was startled and grieved as we entered and exited various trains to see little shops by the tracks with gross pornography being displayed. Some of this was full frontal nudity prominently positioned to catch the eye of every traveler.

As social mores change more and more toward Hedonism and moral degradation, we ought not be surprised to see more and more nakedness. Pornography has now made it to the world-wide web. Sales of x-rated materials and movies are exceedingly popular. Purveyors of filth sell millions of their so-called magazines to an insatiable public with a voracious appetite for more. One wonders what shocking sights lie ahead in a world that seems to be in a moral free fall.

Regardless of how the world undresses and exhibits flesh, a committed believer must be aware of the shame of nakedness, and seek to dress modestly. Our dress, demeanor, and deportment must be holy and different from our world.

Our Appearance Sends A Message


Even as a member of the armed forces is immediately recognized by his distinctive uniform, anyone is sending a message or making a statement about who they are by how they wear clothing. Even in the days of the Old Testament, a harlot was known by her distinctive dress which set her apart from women who dressed modestly."...there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot..." (Prov.7:10). When Tamar conspired to lie with her father-in-law Judah, she put her widow's garments off from her. (Gen.38:14) Because of her distinctive dress and actions, Judah took her to be a harlot and treated her accordingly.

In the above instance, Scripture presents a woman whose flesh was covered, but was distinctively seductive, and whose attire told the world around her she was of wrong moral character. On this basis, how can we condone our wives and daughters wearing clothing that may well cover their bodies, but by its fashion, cut or material used, the outline of portions of the body are so highlighted and accentuated as to cause a seductive, alluring appearance.

Ignorance Or Deliberate Actions?


Tamar knew what she was doing when she appeared in such a distinctive way. She intended to tempt and allure Judah to compromise his morals.

Because men and young men are tempted through what they see (Prov.27:20; Job 31:1), Tamar's plan was eminently successful. If you do not believe men are drawn to look at seductive and alluring women, start watching their eyes in the presence of such women.

A question that begs to be asked is, "Why would any woman who professes to know Christ as her Saviour dress in such a way as to be seductive and alluring? She may protest her clothing covers her body and the hem is below her knee; but does it highlight or accentuate parts of her body that only ought to be seen by her husband? Slit skirts are specifically designed to tease a man's eyes and appeal to his lower nature; tight, form-fitting designs shamelessly publicize body parts and contours that ought to be private; clinging or translucent materials also are specifically designed to be provocative and revealing. If a sister is honestly unaware of how her dress is defrauding every man who views her, she ought to listen to a godly, older woman (Titus 2:3) in the flock, or the Pastor's wife concerning her dress. But from what most women tell me, this type of seductive fashion is usually not accidental or ignorant. How tragic! Many, like Tamar, set out to deliberately catch the carnal eyes of men and tempt them to wrong desires even though they could technically say their bodies are "covered."

An Overwhelming Temptation


A godly David was compromised by viewing a young woman in a state of nakedness (2 Sam.12:2). The powerful impact of nakedness on a man's libido and carnal nature is so compelling, wise men will take steps to avoid such sights if at all possible. Our Lord categorically told Satan it was unlawful to tempt God (Luke 4:12); that is, put Him to the test. Any man purposely viewing pornography, x-rated materials, racy novels, or looking on wrongly-dressed women to lust after them is tempting the Lord. He is putting himself deliberately in the pathway of temptation. No man can lightly face this temptation. As the Scripture says, "many strong men have been slain by her" (Prov.7:27), wherein does this leave ordinary and weak men?

Covering: A Symbol of Righteousness


For fallen man, nakedness is a moral problem, and God provided coats of skins to cover his nakedness (Gen.3:21). This act necessitated the shedding of blood of an innocent victim, and provided "robes of righteousness" for man. Note, what God provided was a "coat," not a bikini or skimpy dress. According to Genesis 37:3, a "coat" is just what the name implies: a large outer covering for the whole body.

It seems plain that God wants most of our flesh covered! Leviticus abounds with warnings against uncovering "nakedness" of people (Lev.18), because this sign of intimacy was only for legitimate, law ful marriage partners.

With What Is Nakedness Associated?


Habakkuk 2:15 implies that drunkenness and nakedness are associated. When under control of a wrong spirit (intoxicating liquors), one will do shameful things that the Holy Spirit would never prompt us to do (Eph.5:18). Noah did the same (Gen.9).

It is also of note that the Gadarene demoniac was naked ("wore no clothes" Lk.8:27). When however, he was delivered of evil spirits he was "clothed and in his right mind" (Lk.8:35).

Nakedness was also a sign of degradation and debauchery the people of God learned from the world (Egypt). While Moses was communing with the Lord, several fell to idolatry and evil actions which included various stages of undress: "Moses saw that the people were naked" (Ex.32:25), and this nakedness was a shame, "...for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame" (Ex.32:25).

Such shame concerning nakedness is of great concern to God if not to us. It was important enough for Ham to be cursed over seeing his father's nakedness (Gen.9:22).

As if to add to their humiliation, prisoners in the Biblical world were sometimes marched away naked so their "shame would be public and magnified" (Isa.20:4). Again and again, the Scripture portrays nakedness as a shame: Rev.3:18; 16:15. Note, it was the Laodiceans who were naked (perhaps in both the spiritual and physical sense), and did not realize how shameful they were (Rev.3:18). It was obvious to God, but not to them. Carnal, lukewarm professors are capable of various stages of nakedness! It is no compliment to a person's spirituality that they wear revealing fashions, go mixed swimming, or in other ways flaunt their nakedness. Modesty is always in style (1 Tim.2:9).

Cover The Outer Man Develop The Inner Man


Godly, modest clothing, that covers a person's body sends a message about godly inner character (1 Pet.3:4). "The King's daughter is all gracious within" (Ps.45:13). Conversely, form-fitting clothing, and various forms of nakedness as "swim suits," shorts, sun suits, bare chests, slit skirts, mini skirts, unbuttoned shirts and blouses, etc., send a message about wrong inner character. Why would anyone professing Christ appear in a state of dress that Scripture associates with: a fallen nature, drunkenness, demon possession, debauchery, degradation, idolatry, loose morals, being a prisoner, being carnal and shameful?

Popularity vs. Holiness


My friend, you may be fashionable, but you are not spiritual in your nakedness. You may be in the majority, but you are not a part of the remnant. You may have the world's smile of approval, but you are not holy. You may get many to see your thigh (hip to knee: Isa.47:2-3), but God's Word calls it nakedness and shameful!

The Lord Jesus has counsel for those in various stages of nakedness: "That thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear...be zealous therefore and repent" (Rev.3:18-19).

I might not agree with everything found on these links, so Remember to use them as a guide and always refer back to the King James Bible to verify what you read, God is always right, man does and continue to make mistakes, so do as the Bereans did

Acts 17:10-11 10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Also do what Paul told us
I Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
