36. Trinity of man is warped0

THE WARPED TRINITY OF MAN

Why is it not only wrong but also blasphemous to compare the Trinity of God with just anything, for example, an egg OR as some prominent churches do, with the sign of cross?
 

FORWARD:

First of all, how I wish people would understand that it is so much simpler to obey God and enter His counsel than to resist Him and become blinded by arrogance!

Just as the Word of God states in Isa 55:8-9, our thoughts and ways are as separated from His Thoughts and Ways as the earth is from the heavens. The only Way we may gain access to His lofty Thoughts and Ways is by perfect obedience.  For this is His will concerning each one of us; the spiritual growth He desires in each one of us:– To begin with perfect obedience and thus grow into the marvelous counsel of God!  

That is, from beginning as His faithful servants to becoming His richly endowed ‘friends’.  For example, note how the chosen disciples earned it and how they were encouraged to retain it (Jn 15:15-16). 

Or, understand what John the Baptist meant when he testified, “…The friend who attends the Bridegroom waits and listens for Him, and is full of joy when he hears the Bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete.” (Jn 3:29)

Failing to obey God and enter into His counsel is the reason the world is flooded with false teachers and false prophets.  For the Spirit testifies in Rom 1:20, since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – His ETERNAL POWER and DIVINE NATURE – have been clearly made known from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

THE ANSWER:

Since the beginning IT HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED that ‘man’ – WHICH MEANS BOTH MALE AND FEMALE’ are they that are created in the image and in the likeness of God (Gen 1:26-28, Gen 5:2).  How then can anything else represent the image and likeness of God?!!!! 

Yet, it  will be NAIVE to assume that we represent His image in our physical nature, for such a conclusion will only betray our ignorance of God.  No more or no less naive than the first man who could not perceive beyond the physical – the flesh and the bones (Gen 2:23).

For God is Spirit (Jn 4:4).  He is not a physical Being. “I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the Imperishable.” (1 Cor 15:50). 

Clearly, among other things, which I shall not venture into here as I have written about them in detail in many of my articles, for eg. The Good News & Prophecy to The Church, The Truth about the Old and the New Covenants – the Ultimate Revelations! etc., IT IS THE TRINITY IMAGE OF GOD THAT IS FOUND REPRESENTED IN ‘MAN’.

Owing to the fall of ‘man’, even though they now bear only the marred image, the marred likeness, this is still noticeably and therefore undeniably true of them.

Yes, even in our marred representation, we stand apart from all God’s creation for the distinctive Trinity Image we bear in the likeness of God who is Triune.  To reiterate, ‘man’, i.e. both the male and the female, are the only ones of God’s creations who REPRESENT the Trinity Image of God in their trinity combination of ‘the body + the spirit of life + the soul’.

Undeniably, this feature of their trinity combination (however marred) continues to testify to the TRUTH.  For this is the DIVINE NATURE of God.

Understand also that the added component of soul that is found in ‘man’ unlike all other beings represents the ETERNAL POWER of God.  For the souls of men are eternal. (This is the reason His unfailing love provided for the salvation of the fallen ‘man’.  God does not desire that ‘man’ should perish.  Because, otherwise it would mean eternal death for them.) 

So that, it is just as the Word testifies, we are cut or hewn from the One and the Same Rock (Deut 32:18, Isa 51:1).  The same Word which went on to testify to the Truth once again, but this time in Flesh (Jn 1:14), and made Himself visible to one and all when He offered Himself up to become the Perfect Sacrifice for the atonement of our sins. 

Therefore, as it is written at the Coming of the eternal Kingdom of God, though He will once again create all things anew ,‘man’, i.e only the saved among them, will be the only ones who will be the regenerated of this world. And what a regeneration!  Perfected in every way in order that they may partake of the perfect glory of God and dwell with Him in Heaven. 

Remember the ‘naked man’ of Eden was created a little lower than heavenly beings evidenced by the fact that they were placed not in heaven but in Eden. 

This is essentially how we ought to perceive the spiritual quality of ‘man’: THAT WE ARE MEANT TO BE EQUALLY VIABLE IN ALL THREE COMPONENTS OF OUR TRINITY JUST AS THE LIVING TRINITY OF GOD – THE LIVING FATHER, THE LIVING SON AND THE LIVING SPIRIT. 

This is the reason our salvation only BEGINS when we are revived in our souls by His Spirit and the Word (the ‘Born-again’ experience – “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the loving and enduring Word of God” – 1 Pet 1:23), and it does not finish or is not consummated until and unless we are revived in the SPIRIT OF ETERNAL LIFE and in the HEAVENLY BODY (by the ‘First Resurrection’ of the Righteous – “For the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’” – 1 Cor 15:54).  Yes, all three components that constitute our trinity to represent the Trinity image of God SHOULD BE REVIVED to make us perfectly whole again.

So that, we may receive the promised abundant life, the three-fold life, endowed as we will be then with eternal life, eternal body and eternal soul.

Not so in the case of the perishing, whose souls though eternal will be subjected to eternal death as bereft of living spirit and living body, theirs will be the eternal agony in their tell-all spiritual ‘nakedness’, even though they might falsely claim they have been spiritually revived.  Thus, at the resurrection of the righteous, all men will be exposed beyond doubt.

As such, please understand that making a sign of cross to symbolize the Trinity of God even if it is on one’s own  person is UTTERLY WRONG!

What has the head, shoulders and chest got to do with the Trinity of God when they are physical attributes of our earthly body waiting to perish?

Or for that matter,  what has flesh, bone and blood got to do with the Trinity of God when in the manner of speaking they are merely akin to the components of an egg, all physical attributes of earthly matter waiting to perish?

Can the Imperishable be confined or expressed in the perishable?!! 

So that it is true of ‘man’ alone, who though were once created in the image and likeness of God and since lost it due to their fall, may at last and once again come to fully represent Him. 

This can only be attained after they have attained the perfect Trinity combination which is the Trinity combination of God.  By adding up in the manner of the following summation of God: 1+1+1=1x1x1 which we know equals THREE TIMES THE ONE OR THE TRIUNE which constitutes the perfect Trinity of God.

The marred image of the fallen ‘man’ (Gen 5:3), on the other hand, fails to achieve the same summation.  Sadly due to the baffling incredulity arrived at by the summation of all kinds of fractions that their marred ones come up with.  And therefore theirs is the summation best described as 0+0+0=0.  

However, let us not forget it is this zero that God wishes to make whole or ‘One’ once again so that we may be restored to Him and live in the perfect harmony of added oneness with Him who alone is One and Eternal.  In this manner (1+0) + (1+0) + (1+0) = into THE PERFECT ONENESS OF GOD  as described in Jn 17:20-23.

37. Man is an impersonator0

MAN IS AN IMPERSONATOR

Why do mere mortals pose as “gods” or “god-men”?

Recently I chanced upon an article titled rather misleadingly, “Why do worshipers seek to be worshiped?”

I use the word ‘misleadingly’ because it should have been titled, “Why do men at the pulpit seek not to worship but to be worshiped?”

Therefore, I must add, if I was expecting some kind of a confession, then I was sorely disappointed.

Here again, by wording the title very cryptically these men at the helm of religious affairs, whose only desire it is to usurp the honor due to God, instead of making a clean breast of it attack the hapless “worshipers” they so pretend to lead.

However, such things must take place so that they are fully exposed. And along with them the flocks who give themselves up to be misled!

For, unbeknown to man, even when he rebels against God and rejects His counsel, he only ends up disproving himself and proving God right.

For example, note how when God taught His people about the ‘Lamb of God’ He would Himself provide (Gen 22:13-14) for the perfect atonement of the sins of the world, the people, instead of turning to God for the promised Lamb, began to offer futile sacrifices of defective lambs from their own depleting mangers (Mal 1:14).

And to this day men continue to offer their goats and lambs and what have you, all to no avail, and disprove themselves!

Likewise, though the creation of ‘man’ proclaimed the Gospel of the Coming Messiah by creating them in the image and likeness of the One who is to come, men rejected the knowledge outright and began to glory in themselves. Right from the very beginning, starting with the very first man!  Read Gen 2:23.

This is the reason even when they pretend to lead fellow-men in worship; soon they become EXPOSED by the fact that they themselves become objects of worship.

Oh, yes, men have only gone on to disprove themselves with every word and deed of theirs. And while they stand stripped to their nakedness, the glory of God, on the other hand, is manifested more and more to the discerning!

Therefore, everywhere I look, I see the fulfillment of God’s Word. Even when men are at their vilest, I see the fulfillment of God’s Word concerning them and rejoice at the contrasting glory and beauty His holiness presents.

To me, the futility of their lying lips only goes on to magnify the Truth of God’s infallible Word even more. When the world busies itself in exalting man to whatever heights it may raise him to, I only see him return to dust, forgotten and trampled upon (Gen 3:19).

For, whether worshiped, sought or adored, this is the fulfillment of the Word of God concerning every mortal born into this world.

Therefore, celebrate the Sabbath for it will be a sign between God and you (Ex 31:13) for every Sabbath in your life will remind you and lead you to rejoice and glory in the Lord of the Sabbath at all times.  Exalt His holy Name.  His and His alone.  For He Alone is worthy!

And remember that in sharp contrast we are but mortals and fallible.  As such, I would also exhort you to build for yourself the heart of a true worshiper which is this:  “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Ps 90:12)

For such a worshiper will not stumble, but will stand firm and upright as oaks among the fading grasses of this world (Isa 61:1-7).

38. Churches silence women0

HOW SHALL I ENTITLE THIS?

THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS?

Why do churches lord it upon their womenfolk and like their Jewish predecessors insist that women ought to remain silent and learn from their men (eg. 1 Cor 14:34-35)?

No. 1, because in their rebellion toward God they do not acknowledge that the “Old Covenant with man”, thanks to their unfaithfulness, has since become OBSOLETE. But in order that they may gain control over His people by pretending to partake of the “New Covenant with the Son of man”, they actually continue in that which was rendered obsolete – which is the old covenant.

This is the Spirits’ warning revealed in the Word of God concerning them and their ministry of the mixed wine, of the old with the new, a ministry which has robbed them of their understanding!  Just as Jesus has exposed them when He uses the metaphor of ‘the New Wine in old wineskin’!

No. 2, because in spite of their remarkably inherent capacity to fail, they refuse to acknowledge their continual guilt of unfaithfulness and disobedience toward God.

This is true of each one of them, beginning with the very first man.  And therefore to-date like the first man they refuse to repent and instead continue with their teachings of self-glorification!

And this is precisely the reason why the Old Covenant with man, i.e. the male (eg. Gen 2:17), came to be irreparably broken, and in its place came about the fulfillment of that which is known as the “New Covenant”. 

In Truth, the New Covenant is the Everlasting Covenant with the Son of man (Gen 3:15), and which not surprisingly has forever reversed the roles BY BEGINNING WITH THE FEMALE.  Eg. Isa 7:14, Jer 31:22, Mk 14:9, Jn 20:17 etc.

See the truth that emerges from the beginning.  Just as the God-ordained name ‘man’ included both male and female (Gen 1:26-28), His purpose has been established since of old:

a)  Did not the calling of Noah include his wife and daughters-in-law?  And at the same time, let us also understand why the said calling came to be nullified.  Because here again man’s persistent dependency on the broken and nullified Old Covenant is exposed as Noah and his sons are themselves exposed by their unfaithfulness one way or the other!

b)  Did not Rebecca having realized that her husband did not have the answers inquire of the Lord herself and was well rewarded with His counsel for her trouble?

c)  Did not the Lord send Word directly to Sarah and make it absolutely certain to all concerned that she had received them when Abraham, having repeatedly failed to acknowledge her inclusion and prominence in his calling, fails to pass on the Word to her himself?

Oh, the list is endless.  The point is – The failure on man’s part to acknowledge the truth is exposed, whether Jew or Gentile!  As the churches in turn have exposed themselves!!!!

Note how the churches have sought to rebel against God and corrupted His Word by adding to it their self-glorifying teachings:

Read 1 Cor 14:34a which begins, “As in all congregations of the saints, women should remain silent in the churches….”

BY OPENLY ACKNOWLEDGING THAT ALL SUCH CONGREGATIONS WHERE WOMEN ARE SILENCED ARE CONGREGATIONS OF SAINTS, THEY HAVE EXPOSED THEMSELVES BEYOND DOUBT NOT ONLY IN REBELLING AGAINST GOD AND HIS ETERNAL COVENANT BUT ALSO IN DECLARING THEIR ONENESS WITH THE REST BY FOLLOWING IN THEIR GOD-FORSAKEN WAYS!

This is the reason as long as people choose to live by their accursed pride they will continue to put their trust in mere mortals or man and his teachings (Jer 17:5).  Led by their carnal spirits of immediate gratification, never mind how short-lived, theirs remain the unproductive and short-sighted vision of here and now. 

Refer 2 Pet 1:5-9, “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your Faith, Goodness; and to Goodness, Knowledge; and to Knowledge, Self-control; and to Self-control, Perseverance; and to Perseverance, Godliness; and to Godliness, Brotherly Kindness; and to Brotherly Kindness, Love (all fruits of the Spirits – Gal 5:22, against which there is no law!).  For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive……  But if anyone does not have them, he is NEARSIGHTED and BLIND, and has FORGOTTEN THAT HE HAS BEEN CLEANSED FROM HIS PAST SINS.”

Just as Jesus exhorts and testifies, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matt 6:22-23).

Only God is the True Light and His Word, the True Lamp (Rev 21:23, Ps 119:105).  Just as it testifies with regard to the First Coming of the Son of man in Jn 1:4: “In Him was Life, and that Life was the Light of men.”

Therefore all those who live by the Word of God, walk in His Light and are called ‘children of Light’.  “For the fruit of the Light consists in all Goodness, Righteousness and Truth.” (Eph 5:9).  And it is them of whom Jesus declares, “You are the light of the world….” (Matt 5:14).

Yet to the fatal testimony of wicked men everywhere, even though, “Light shines in the darkness, the darkness has not understood it.” (Jn 1:5)

THIS IS THE REASON BY AND LARGE ALL PEOPLES EVERYWHERE LIKEWISE CONTINUE IN THEIR ACCURSED DARKNESS AND FOLLOW MERE MORTALS, IN WHOM THERE IS NEITHER LIFE NOR LIGHT!!!!  This is by and large true of all men as we can see for ourselves – whether in Christendom or outside.

There is no question of the futility of following mere mortals (Jer 17:5).  And, the more they do so, the more it exposes them.    

CONCLUSION: 

Above all, these men who rule the roost of Christendom, forgetting that they were themselves cleansed of their past sins, by silencing the women thwart the very Word of God which was established since of old, “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit.” (Zech 4:6). 

Oh yes, they have only added to their accruing guilt by resisting, quenching and grieving the Spirit Who is poured out on all people irrespective of any man-enforced differences, just as was promised (Acts 2:16-21).   Matt 12:32, “Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”

39. The Son is the Heir of God and man0

THE SON OF GOD IS THE HEIR OF GOD AND MAN

What is the full implication of the word “Son” in the term ‘Son of man’ when used  in reference to Jesus Christ, the Son of God? 

Let us understand the full implications of the Word “Son” in the divine term “the Son of man” used in reference to Jesus Christ, the Only begotten Son of God:

Having already clarified the true implication of the otherwise much misinterpreted Word ‘man’ in the said divine term, it is time I start hitting home the nail of truth concerning the Word “Son” also.

At the outset, let us recall that spiritually speaking the word “son” means “the heir”.   As such, it has got nothing to do with the gender of the beholder for God is Spirit and therefore physical attributes do not pertain either to God or to the godly. 

This is why “the Son of God” means “the Heir of God”, and it is the reason why Jesus is called the Only Begotten Son of God for He was and is the Only Heir of God.

However, God by His great and awesome power has ordained that man may partake of the divine “heir-ship” so that we who are now separated from Him because of our sins may forever be restored to Him by the holy Covenant of His Blood TO BE MADE HOLY AND CALLED SONS AND CO-HEIRS WITH CHRIST (Matt 13:37-38a, Matt 13:43).

Consequently, as it has been revealed since the beginning Jesus Christ is also the Firstborn over all creation (Col 1:15). 

In other words, it is also the holy confirmation of our surpassing Calling!  For, this is the reason or the knowledge by which Abel glorified the Son by offering some of the “firstborn” of his flock and thereby winning the favor of God in so acknowledging the Word and glorifying Him who Alone is worthy of all glory.

Likewise, the term “the Son of man” means exactly the same!

That Jesus Christ is the Heir and the Firstborn of man (Ps 89:27).  For having been conceived of the Holy Spirit, in Him is first fulfilled the pre-ordained purpose of God which was to raise godly offspring from among man (Mal 2:15a).

On the other hand, man, who had from the very beginning sought to rebel against God, have only succeeded in harvesting wind for all their troubles!   Refer Isa 26:18, “We were with child, we writhed in pain, but we gave birth to wind. We have not brought salvation to the earth….”

Indeed, it is just as the Word of God states, “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit..” (Jn 3:6) and “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing..” (Jn 6:6). 

Therefore while He who is born of the Spirit lives on, they that are born of the flesh return to dust!

However, be sure, they that believe in Him and are “born again” of the Spirit and the Word (Jn 3:5-7) and live the new life of the Spirit, bearing the good and lasting fruits of the Spirit, will likewise live on, because the Second Death or the Eternal Death will have no power over them (Rev 20:6). 

Just as it was demonstrated by the Son of God when on the third day He rose from the dead – thus revealing Himself to be also the Firstborn from the dead (Col 1:18, Rev 1:5). 

And thus, they shall also be called the “sons” of God.  “Because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” (Rom 8:14). 

What’s more?   If sons, then heirs too.  “Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory.” (Rom 8:17).

And they shall only be given birth to (Isa 66:7-11), which spiritually speaking means “be revealed” at the Second Coming of the Lord in all His glory (Rom 8:18).  For it is not the work of the flesh but of the Spirit, and therefore the Lord Almighty Himself will accomplish it at the Appointed Time.

For eg., read Isa 42:13-17, “The Lord will march out like a mighty man, like a warrior He will stir up His zeal; with a shout He will raise the battle cry and will triumph over His enemies. ‘For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held Myself back. But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant. I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all the vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools. I will lead the blind (meaning the spiritually blind) by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough place (meaning teaching of men that cause us to stumble and fall) smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them. But those who trust in idols, who say to images, “You are our gods,’ will be turned back in utter shame.’”

40. Be fruitful0

BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY

Why should we be fruitful?  And what does it really mean?

Understanding that the God-ordained way for man is to be fruitful and multiplying in the Spirit :

Because it has always been the God-ordained purpose for man that they dwell with Him (Jn 14:1-4).  And how?  By filling it.

Right from the beginning because man failed to fulfill this purpose of God, they fail to understand that the way they multiply is in the manner of the beasts.  And so they continue with their unions or marriages as they call it,and like the beasts even though they multiply they continue to perish: “…….. he is like the beasts that perish.” (Ps 49:12b).

He fails to understand that when he fell from grace in Eden, he fell in every manner. Most importantly in their surpassing calling which had initially set them above all the beasts and livestock of the earth, the birds of the air and the creatures of all water-bodies of the earth (Gen 1:26, 28)! 

So that, while it was possible to become fruitful and multiply in the God-ordained or “blessed” manner in Eden they had failed to do so. 

Why blessed?  Because what came after the fall is the “cursed” manner, the beastly manner (Gen 3:16).  The Spirit’s way is the blessed manner.  This is why Mary’s holy conception deemed her blessed (Lk 1:28 & 48).

Instead, by inviting death through his disobedience (Gen 2:15-17, Gen 3:17-19), forget fruitfulness, forget multiplying, ‘man’ had in effect ended up losing themselves as well.  So that they could neither enter heaven nor fill it!

For, having fallen from Grace, which is the Word of God that was entrusted to him he failed to guard himself in the Spirit and ended up breaking faith with his wife.  Ref Mal 2:15.  Under the circumstances it became impossible for them to live in the Spirit and bear fruits and multiply in the Spirit.

Yet, unrepentant, the male continued to remain alienated in the Spirit.  Thus overlooking the blessed calling of the female which proclaimed the end of the enemy (Gen 3:15), he very surreptitiously took advantage of the curse that befell her (Gen 3:16) and subjected her to his rule so that since then they began to multiply in the cursed manner i.e. in the flesh – JUST LIKE THE BEASTS!

This is the reason even among the so-called godly, marriages or sexual unions will continue till the very end, just as Jesus prophesied (Matt 24:37-39).  Because men at large remain foolhardy thanks to their waywardness. They continue unrepentant and unyielding to the Spirit, even those that outwardly pretend otherwise.

And this is precisely the reason why it was declared since of long with regard to the holy Bride of the Lamb, the true children of God, whose Husband is the Lord God Almighty, eg. Jer 3:14a, “Return, faithless people,” declares the Lord, “for I am your Husband.” 

For true fruitfulness among mankind can only come about by the work of the Spirit and the Word (Jn 3:5-7).  It is the fruitfulness not of the ‘born’ of the flesh but of the ‘BORN AGAIN’ of the Spirit.

Who can tell where the Spirit is moving and gathering those His own before the Appointed Time (Jn 3:8)?  This is why it is written, “’Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband’ says the Lord.” (Isa 54:1).

May those who understand, understand and take heed.  Finally, here’s a parable that sheds true spiritual insight.  Refer Lk 14:15-23, “……….. ‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’  Then the master told his servants, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be FULL.  I tell you, not one of those men who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’ “

41. God, the Mother of the godly0

THE MOTHERHOOD OF GOD

Why has the Truth of the Motherhood of God eluded us all along?

Those who have been zealously reading the preceding two posts to this one are spiritually ready to receive and understand the concept of the “Motherhood of God”.

The all encompassing and divine nature of God, His eternal powers, made known to man since the beginning of time have gone on to reveal that He is The Father (meaning the Creator), The Savior, The Son (meaning the Heir), The Holy Spirit (meaning He is Spirit and He is Holy), The Almighty, The Truth, The Life, The Way, Love, The Triune God, The Husband (meaning the Redeemer or the One who Alone pays the Ransom for the redemption of mankind), The Light, The Lord of the Sabbath, The Eternal King, the Sovereign Lord, The Healer, The One who Alone will re-Create all things anew, The One who Alone is Good, The True Shepherd, The Infallible Word, The Triumphant One, The God of hosts, The Maker and God of all creations, The Eternal Spirit, The Lamb who was slain for the sins of the world, The Resurrection, The Giver of all good things, The Merciful and Compassionate God, The Consuming Fire, The Prince of Peace, The All-knowing and All-wise, The Eternal High Priest and The One who Alone is worthy of all honor, wisdom, power, praises, worship, strength and wealth to begin with.

The more one draws nigh unto Him, the more He draws nigh unto them.  In other words, the more one experiences Him, the more He makes Himself known.  Which in summations also means, the more one learns of Him is when the more one also begins to see the untruths, the distortions, the misinterpretations, the deceptions planted by the devil and his band of lying spirits all of whom find a safe haven in rebellious and unfaithful men – THE BALAAMS AND JEZEBELS OF THIS WORLD – and make them their worthwhile spokespersons.

THUS IS EXPOSED THE LIE, THE MYTH WHICH EXULTS IN THE ‘CURSED’ MOTHERHOOD (Gen 3:16) OF WOMAN WHICH BEGAN RIGHT AWAY AFTER THEIR FALL (Gen 3:20)! BECAUSE SUCH A MOTHERHOOD IS TO THE GLORY OF MAN WHOSE SEEDS ARE THAT WHICH SHE ENDS UP CONCEIVING OUT OF HER ‘CURSED DESIRE FOR HIM’ AND IN ADDITION, OUT OF THE ‘CURSED SUBJECTION TO HIM’!

This is why the Word of God testifies, “… My people have exchanged their Glory for worthless idols…… My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken Me, the Spring of Living Water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.” (Jer 2:11-13) and, “Long ago you broke off your yoke (the ‘blessed yoke’ of God – Matt 11:29-30) and tore off your bonds (the holy and eternal covenants of God); you said, ‘I will not serve You!’ Indeed, on every hill and under every spreading tree (meaning the high places of this world and their advocates who are but mortal men) you lay down as a prostitute.” (Jer 2:20).  Also read Deut 32:18, “You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; and forgot the God WHO GAVE YOU BIRTH.”

Thus God once again exposes the idolatrous hearts of men when on the pretext of glorifying Him they continue with their exultation of the “motherhood of woman” by their deification of Mary (eg. Lk 11:27).  And even though Lord corrects them right away and imparts the divine wisdom (Lk 11:28), it is obvious they never learn!!!

FOR CLEARLY JESUS ESTABLISHES THAT IT IS NOT THE MOTHERHOOD OF MARY WHICH AWARDED HER THE BIRTH OF THE LORD BUT RATHER HER BLESSED AND PERFECT SUBJECTION TO THE WILL OF GOD FOLLOWED BY HER FAITHFUL OBEDIENCE OF IT – THE EXEMPLARY FAITH WHICH TRANSLATED INTO SIGHT FOR HER WHEN SHE BEHELD THE MESSIAH WITH HER OWN EYES BOTH AT HIS BIRTH AND AT HIS RESURRECTION!

Therefore just as it was with her, so will it be with all His blessed people, all of whose faith WILL BECOME SIGHT at His blessed and glorious Second Coming.

This is the wisdom which leads us to the Truth concerning the Motherhood of God – in the spiritual birth of His children – WHICH WE MAY SHARE IN AND PARTAKE OF AS HIS FAITHFUL SERVANTS, MAN OR WOMAN!  For eg., read Gal 4:19, “My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you.”

That is right!  Read Isa 42:14, “For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held Myself back. But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out; I gasp and pant.” 

Why?  For it is God Himself who will bring forth the children of God, the sons of the Kingdom of Heaven (Isa 66:7-9). The Word of God testifies, “As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted..” (Isa 66:13).

NOT ONLY WILL HIS SERVANTS PARTAKE OF HIS PAINS OF CHILDBIRTH FOR HIS CHILDREN IN THE BLESSED WAY (LIKE MARY), THE WICKED WILL TOO!  BUT IN THE CURSED MANNER – BY THE JUDGMENT OF GOD!

Read Isa 13:8, “Terror will seize them, pain and anguish will grip them; they will writhe like a woman in labor. They will look aghast at each other, their faces aflame.”’ Jer 30:6, “Ask and see: Can a man bear children? Then why do I see every strong man with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor, every face turned deathly pale?” and Isa 26:17, “As a woman with child and about to give birth writhes and cries out in her pain, so were we in Your presence, O Lord.”

And so will all creations! For eg. read Rom 8:22, Matt 24:8 etc.  SO THAT ALL MANKIND – I.E. ALONG WITH THE RIGHTEOUS, THE WICKED MAY ALSO LEARN AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE TRUTH AT LAST!

For God alone is the Giver of Life, the Creator, the God of Resurrection and the God of Regeneration. Oh, crown Him with many crowns.  The crown of ‘Blessed and Holy Motherhood’ too. 

All glory and praise to Him and Him alone.  Amen!

42. A sexual predator and more0

A SEXUAL PREDATOR AND MORE – THE MALE OF MAN IS INDISPUTABLY EXPOSED!

How the man is exposed!  Is there any stone left unturned to expose his bestiality?

1. Irrespective of whatever racial superiority he lays claim to, to exalt himself above his fellowmen, he succumbs to sin, sickness and death just like everybody else.

2. In the face of danger – real or imagined – the vulnerability of man is exposed, whether male or female.  So who is weaker and who is stronger?

3. Is the male superior because he is also a sexual predator? If anything it only goes to expose his bestiality even more!  And this is the reason the whole world is gearing up to exalt the ULTIMATE BEAST – THE MALE OF MAN IN ALL HIS BEASTLY FULLNESS!

4. The science of cryogenic for body preservation, the theory of reincarnation etc. etc.…..,the theory of evolution included, are man’s involuntary testaments to the Truth which proclaims the eternity of the souls of men, even though they expose his persistent rebellion against God.

The Word of God which is infallible clearly states that the death of our mortal bodies is not the end of us.  In fact it is only the temporal First Death which comes on both the righteous and the wicked alike. However, there is the permanent Second Death which is for the wicked alone, and it will come upon all who have rejected the Truth to pursue their evil imaginations.  It is the Death meted out at the Judgment Seat of God.  Yes, to that end the wicked shall also, at their Appointed Time, rise from death at long last to face the wrath of God – WHEN NO THEORY, NO SCIENCES THAT THEY’D CONCOCTED IN THEIR REBELLION WILL PROVIDE A COVER FOR THEIR MISDEEDS, ALL OF WHICH WILL BECOME UNDENIABLY AND IRREFUTABLY VISIBLE TO ONE AND ALL.

In other words, just as First Death exposes all men, the Second Death will expose all the wicked among men.

5. BE WARNED ALL THOSE WHO LOVE TO ADVOCATE THE BIBLE AS THE WORD OF GOD, for knowingly or unknowingly you also advocate the lies planted in it by men.

AND TO YOUR UTTER FOLLY AND SHAME YOU BECOME EXPOSED BY THE TEACHINGS OF MEN THAT YOU HAVE INADVERTENTLY COME TO UPHOLD AND PRACTICE.

6. Of all the esteemed garments advocated by the religious man, nothing exposes his lies more than the ‘garment of white’!

At the Appointed Time, all his moth-eaten fabric will lay bare his hollow teachings and expose his sinful nakedness against the radiant brilliance of the Light, which is the unparalleled glory of God that will clothe His children, the righteous.

7. No matter how much man may glory in his achievements – his dynasties, his wealth, his power, his knowledge, his findings, his mega structures – history showcases the corruption that reigns over him and his deeds.

If only we’d stop deceiving ourselves and acknowledge the truth, for they are as loud as the self-glorying proclamations he makes in his heyday!

8. Of all the creations of the world, only man feels the need to conduct ‘marriages’ to sanctify, legalize and authorize sexual union. 

This is true of all men.  Irrespective of the nationality, race (!) or religion he belongs to.  Even though the very act itself is no different or less beastly than that of any other beasts or creations of flesh, and like all other creations of flesh ends up reproducing perishable fruits of flesh!

BUT THE QUESTION THEN IS WHY ‘MARRIAGE’ IF IT IS ALL THE SAME?

And the answer is BECAUSE ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE THE VERY TEACHING OF MARRIAGE BETRAYS HIS KNOWLEDGE AND THEREBY THE REBELLION AGAINST THE PROPHETIC ‘WEDDING OF THE LAMB’ PART OF THE GOSPEL REVEALED BY GOD. 

That is right, ‘marriage’ exposes man as much as all his misdeeds of the flesh whether ‘sanctified’ by marriage or not.

9. All man’s efforts at negating the superiority of human beings over all other beings of this world expose his defiance of God’s Word for the pursuit of his carnal and evil agenda.

FOR SUCH TREACHEROUS TEACHINGS OBLITERATE ALL HOPES FOR THEIR KEEPERS TO RISE TO THE ‘SUPERIORITY’ AND IMPERISHABLE ‘GLORY’ OTHERWISE PRE-ORDAINED AND DESTINED BY GOD, WHO IS THEIR MAKER AND REDEEMER.

10. All the lies of this world, and the fact that they are so well and eagerly received will testify against the world. 

For the fame, the power, the wealth, the rewards and the glory ascribed to their planters – THE LIARS – will testify against them and their followers SINCE TRUTH, AS IS WONT TO, CONTINUES TO SURVIVE ALBEIT IN EXTREME POVERTY, NEGLECT AND IMPOVERISHMENT!

In other words, what men pay for lies should give us an inkling how priceless Truth is.  This is why the Word of God like all gifts of God is given freely.  But they that reject it will be held to account very dearly indeed!!

11. Man’s desperate but futile attempts to beautify himself or herself irrespective of the color of his or her skin testifies to their ‘lost glory’ – the likeness they once mirrored of the Holy, Spiritual and Majestic Splendor of God’s Immaculate and Imperishable Beauty. 

12. Virtual footprints are a testimony to God’s infallible Word which testifies to His Book of Records that will expose all deeds of men.

The list goes on and on, far too many to enumerate here, but suffice to prove –
Man, oh man, how contrary!
Exposed he stands in all his folly!!

CONCLUSION: 

In conclusion, here’s a verse, the INFALLIBLE REMINDER of what is to come on the Day of God’s Retribution, Isa 2:11, “The eyes of the arrogant man will be humbled and the pride of men brought low; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.”

43. Men fail to partake of the New Covenant0

MEN FAIL TO PARTAKE OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL COVENANT OF GOD

Why is it so difficult, almost to the point of being almost impossible, for man to absolutely partake of the symbolic New Wine which is the New Covenant in the Blood of the Lamb?

The folly of ‘man’ comes through vividly in their candid admission – or rather their obvious addition to the Word of God.  Oh yes additions just as deletions – all of which they have been so adept at making to the Word of God since time immemorial if only one was willing to see and acknowledge!!

The admission I am alluding to in this particular instant is given in LK 5:19, “AND NO ONE AFTER DRINKING OLD WINE WANTS THE NEW, FOR HE SAYS, ‘THE OLD IS BETTER.’ ”

Before I move on, let me make it absolutely clear that the old wine which is symbolic of the Old Covenant is called ‘old’ not because, as it is ‘falsely’ supposed, to have come before the New, BUT because it is the one which is made OBSOLETE.

Why made obsolete? For those who are in the dark, understand that it was made obsolete because it was the Covenant which elected man to be both THE REPRESENTATION (hence when they were created, they were created in His likeness and in His image) AND THE BEARER of the New Covenant or THE GOSPEL which is and has always been the ETERNAL Covenant for indeed God’s Word changes not.

However, right from the very beginning, since the very first man ‘Adam’, man has been unfaithful to God and to the Word entrusted to him (Hos 6:7, Isa 43:27, Ezek 2:3, Ps 78:57, Jer 8:8 etc..). So that the Covenant with man, or the Old Covenant as it is known since, came to be broken by the first man himself (Hos 6:7).

THEREFORE IN AS MUCH AS MAN CONTINUES TO PRETEND THAT ‘HE’ REMAINS BOTH THE REPRESENTATION AND THE BEARER OF GOD’S ETERNAL COVENANT, HIS ‘INEVITABLE’ FAILURES CONTINUE TO EXPOSE HIS FOLLY!!

They remain obstinately oblivious to the fact that having at the very beginning itself fallen from grace, they have since lost their old glory and no longer bear the likeness and image of God.  So that, THAT WHICH WAS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM IN THEIR GLORIOUS STATE COULD NEVER BE POSSIBLE FOR THEM IN THEIR FALLEN STATE.

The understanding and acknowledgement of this truth is that which leads one to fully comprehend the New Covenant – the eternal Covenant of His Blood wrought for us by the Son of God – which Alone can change our impossibilities in to possibilities!

As such, also understand that the Old Covenant was MEANT to be made obsolete because it was MEANT to expose the spiritual ‘nakedness’ (Gen 2:25) of man – a fact man in his unyielding arrogance struggles to reconcile with to date!

In addition, by their own admission as seen in Lk 5:19, churches like their Jewish predecessors, pretend to embrace the New Covenant, all the while unwilling to let go of the obsolete Old Covenant. 

In so doing, they have gone on to prove Jesus’ prophecy concerning them.  Refer Matt 9:17, Mk 2:22 and Lk 5:37. “NEITHER DO MEN POUR NEW WINE INTO OLD WINESKINS. IF THEY DO, THE SKINS WILL BURST, THE WINE WILL RUN OUT AND THE WINESKINS WILL BE RUINED. NO, THEY POUR NEW WINE INTO NEW WINESKINS, AND BOTH ARE PRESERVED.” (Matt 9:17).

For not having sought the renewal they so badly need they have failed either to preserve themselves or the Covenant they so pretend to bear.  Instead, together they blaspheme the Name of the Lord all day long (Isa 52:5) and bring disrepute to His work among the nations.

All those who have ears let them hear and all those who perceive let them understand.  Do not let your hearts be hardened.  Receive the Word and experience its fulfillment in you: “I AM SENDING YOU GRAIN, NEW WINE AND OIL, ENOUGH TO SATSFY YOU FULLY; NEVER AGAIN WILL I MAKE YOU AN OBJECT OF SCORN TO THE NATIONS.” (Joel 2:19) and “HOW ATTRACTIVE AND BEAUTIFUL THEY WILL BE! GRAIN WILL MAKE THE YOUNG MEN THRIVE, AND NEW WINE THE YOUNG WOMEN.” (Zech 9:17).

It is my prayer that all offspring of the woman of the New Covenant (Gen 3:15) who read this may find fulfillment of these prophecies in them and gladly share the Good Word around to all who are willing to give ear.

44. One Sacrifice Once & for All0

ONE SACRIFICE ONCE AND FOR ALL

HOW CAN THE SINGLE SACRIFICE SUFFICE FOR THE SINS OF THE WHOLE WORLD?

This and other questions like ‘How can one ‘Man’s’ blood be enough to cleanse the whole world?’ are some of the many questions men pose to counter the FAULTY GOSPEL presented by the churches.  And rather unwittingly, for all their oppositions they in turn end up exposing themselves by continuing to repeat their sacrifices and thus in spite of themselves showcasing the Truth THAT NOTHING THEY DO WILL EVER SUFFICE!!

Because churches, on their part, just like their Jewish predecessors before them, in order that man or rather the male of man may be exalted have failed to shed True Light.  Even though outwardly they pretend to acknowledge the divine nature of the First Coming of the Son of God, they quickly enough expose themselves by hastening to relegate the Son of God alongside themselves by attaching their own fleshly patriarchy to Him (Matt 1:1-16, Lk 3:23b-38 etc.).  This is why the gospel they present is called THE FAULTY GOSPEL.

THE END RESULT BEING THAT JUST AS THE JEWS CONTINUED WITH THEIR ANIMAL SACRIFICES, CHURCHES CONTINUE TO BE SHEPHERDED BY THE UNFAITHFUL MAN!

THE TRUTH, however, is that the creation of ‘man – the male and the female’ first proclaimed the Gospel because just as the Word of God testifies, they were created in the image and likeness of the Coming Messiah.  And the fact remains that NEITHER – i.e. neither the male nor the female was meant to be the Messiah.

Because the Word also testifies that both were naked which exposes the FACT that unlike the Messiah they are created beings. And that when they were created they were created lower than even the heavenly beings or the angels (Ps 8:5).  This is the reason they were not placed in Heaven but in Eden.

What is more? Further they went on to expose THEIR UNWORTHINESS when having suddenly realized that they were naked they fail to provide themselves with appropriate covering (Gen 3:7, 21, Isa 64:6). 

Just as Job is seen to testify, Job 1:21a, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart…”  Sadly, even though man is seemingly quick to understand the first part of the verse because of its obvious physical symbolism, he lacks the spiritual insight to understand it totally!  Even now!  And even though the Spirit testifies to the readiness of the Bride at the Wedding of the Lamb in the end, “Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Rev 19:8a), they still struggle to get it!  Clearly it is not something given by man (eg. Rev 6:11).

Yet, obstinate and arrogant, man continued to oppose the Truth and refused to acknowledge it at all levels. Even after the fact that sons are born to them WHO AS THE WORD TESTIFIES NO LONGER BEAR THE ‘NOW LOST’ LIKENESS AND IMAGE OF GOD BUT ONLY THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF THEMSELVES, ‘THE FALLEN MAN’ (Gen 5:3) and who like themselves succumb to sin, death and decay without exception!

Just as it was in the case of the Israelites!  Even though God Himself taught and proclaimed the Gospel to Abraham ‘NOT BY THE BLOOD OF THE SON OF MORTAL MAN BUT BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB OF GOD’, unyieldingly they began to offer their animals instead of looking up to God to provide the Holy and the Perfect Sacrifice (Mal 1:14) – THE SURPASSING SACRIFICE WHICH WAS TO BE MADE ONCE AND FOR ALL.

And how? By sending His only begotten Son to be offered as the Perfect Lamb of God – Who went on to attest the Gospel in Himself by showing Himself victorious over both sin and death. So that all men who believe in Him may partake of His victory and overcome the stamp of sinfulness, curses and death which are congenitally AND UNDENIABLY upon them without exception.

When He took on the ‘blessed’ and ‘holy’ Flesh (thanks to its blessed and holy conception) to offer Himself as the Perfect Sacrifice for the sins of the world, He was indeed conceived of the Holy Spirit and the infallible Word AND NOT OF THE SEED OF MAN. Therefore He is also called the Word of God Incarnate.

Mary, the female of man, thanks to the pre-ordained election of the woman for the purpose (Gen 3:15) was chosen to offer her womb for the divine surrogacy and no more.

As such no man may dare to trace His lineage in their cursed and fallible flesh. And indeed the Lord Himself admonishes them not to (egs. Mk 12:35-37, Jn 8:56-58). In spite of which churches have gone on to incorporate their own versions of His lineage in the cursed flesh of man which in turn inadvertently only go on to expose them for the two versions they have proffered are themselves contradictory AS THEY WERE INDEED WONT TO BE!!!

Now may we answer these questions? What sacrifice can compare with the sacrifice of the Son of God? And what blood can compare with the holy Blood of the Lamb of God?

How can the testimony of the blood of man (even if he is called a martyr, for eg. Abel) ever compare with the Living Testimony, the Supreme Authority, the Cleansing Power and the Continual Intercession offered for us by the Blood of the Son of God?

Who is worthy?  Or, rather, who indeed is able to better that which is Perfect, Holy and forever Pleasing and Acceptable to God?

And lastly, let us ask ourselves, do we need another sacrifice now that the Perfect, Holy and Acceptable sacrifice is made – ONCE AND FOR ALL?

45. Believe in the Son of God1

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BELIEVE IN THE SON OF GOD?

Why should we believe in the Son of God?  And, what exactly does it mean to believe in the Son of God?

Often we are misled into understanding that believing is an abstract notion or experience.  And therefore we go only as far as giving it some form, if any, in words that are meant to describe what we feel or experience.

Christians call it confession of one’s faith (Rom 10:9), and CHURCHES ACTUALLY MISLEAD by teaching that everyone who confesses will be saved!!!!!!  Refer Rom 10:13.

This is why the Son of God has forewarned, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in Heaven.” (Matt 7:21).

Because ‘BELIEVING in the Son of God’ means ‘TO BE LIVING in the Son of God’.

In practice it is a CONTINUAL process – meaning it continues till the very end.  Therefore it is written, “…. he who stands firm to the end will be saved.”  (Matt 10:22).

And, in nature, it is THE TOTAL RENEWAL OF ONESELF – which means to be able to one-by-one discard the old ways of the carnal man (or of the man of the flesh) and replace them by adopting the new ways of the Spirit (or of the One of the Spirit) as one grows in the knowledge of Him by the Word and the Spirit.

In other words, it means to LIVE in the manner perfectly and surpassingly exemplified by the Son of God Himself.  Refer Jn 3:5, Jn 6:63, Matt 7:24-25 etc.

FAILING TO DO SO IS THE REASON ALMOST ALL END UP WITH THEIR FINAL CONDITION WORSE THAN THEIR FIRST.  Of course it is difficult for such a one to admit it until too late!!  (Matt 7:22-23, “……… Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you.  Away from Me, you evildoers!’”).

Because they drink of the deluding potion that blinds all who drink of it – the alluring concoction of COMPLACENCY with the luring mixture of CONSPIRACY (2 Thess 2:9-11).

However, the Son of God has testified – refer Matt 12:43-45 – and it will only stand in our good stead if we stop deceiving ourselves and humbly surrender to the Truth.

For the Truth – THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH CONCERNING IT is established since of old.  For example, read Joel 2:12, “And everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance as the Lord has said, among the survivors WHOM THE LORD CALLS.”

This is why Peter reminds, 2 Pet 1:10, “Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure….”

Here is an apt saying:

Hypocrites seek the approval of men,
But it is the contrite who receive the favor of God.
