- Question:What is "GOSPEL”?Answer:The Dictionary defines, “Gospel is the teachings of Jesus Christ and the apostles”.What is the “real GOSPEL” as it is written in the Holy Bible?2 Corinthians 11:4 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. Therefore, preaching the TRUE CHRIST is the real gospel.
- Question:How does Christianity Today preach JESUS CHRIST?
- JESUS CHRIST is both God and man, the 2nd person of the Blessed Trinity (doctrine defended by Athanasius in the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D).
- JESUS CHRIST is only a man and not God (doctrine espoused by Arius in 256–336 AD, a Christian presbyter in Alexandria, Egypt).
- JESUS CHRIST is the “name” of the FATHER and HOLY SPIRIT (Oneness doctrine or Modalism espoused by Sabellius a 3rd century Theologian). Warning: Revelation 13:11 regarding how SATAN also known as DRAGON (Revelation 12:9) speaks.With different CHRIST being preached, CHRISTIANITY is now divided into several sects and denominations.
- Question:How about the Apostles, what is God’s revelation to them of the “True CHRIST”?Answer:Saul, now known as Paul, formerly was serving the “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”. On his way to Damascus to get a license from the authority to persecute more followers of Christ, this incident happened:Act 9:3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: Act 9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? Act 9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutes… From this encounter Paul wrote the following verses leading to the identity of Jesus Christ, among them: Hebrews 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.1 Timothy 3:16 KJV 1611 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. Warning: Other Bible translations removed the word GOD and changed it Jesus Christ, or He and others omitted it.
- Question:What caused the division of CHRISTIANITY into more than 3000 groups having different “gospels of salvation”?Answer:The cause actually is the following that Apostle John wrote: Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. Revelation 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? Revelation 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. Revelation 5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. Revelation 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. JESUS CHRIST is also known as the “Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David”. This BOOK actually is the Holy Bible!
- Question:How could this BOOK be the Holy Bible when everybody can open and read it?Answer:Yes, the Holy Bible is closed in the eyes of God. However, it can be opened and people learn MORAL LESSON which is the basis of Religious teachings. By divine revelation, God will show His “intended message” thereof, contrary to what Religious Leaders “feed the people with the word” of God from this BOOK.
- Question:How does God prove that this BOOK is the Holy Bible?Answer:Continuing reading the Holy Bible, God distinguishes “human perception” from “divine revelation”. Revelation 10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: 2 And he had in his hand a little book open… Revelation 10:8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.Revelation 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. Revelation 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. The “little book” refers to the Holy Bible for it cannot be denied that Religious Leaders claim they “feed their flock” with the word of God. However, they are limited to “human perception” pertaining only to “moral lessons” that everybody wants to hear and apply. This is referred to as “sweet as honey in the mouth”. However, it is limited to “physical life” that eventually ends in the grave. But when Jesus Christ open the Holy Bible He reveals the “spiritual message” that is “bitter to accept” for this refers to the “salvation of the soul”.
- Question:Can this truth be clearly demonstrated?Answer:The miracles of our Lord illustrate “sweet in the mouth” that benefit the body or “flesh”, but turn “bitter in the belly” as this refers to the salvation of the soul. These are the warnings:John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the wordsthat I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
- Question:How does “opening the eyes of the blind” apply to “sweet in the mouth” and “bitter in the belly”?Answer:Jesus said:John 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. Human understanding for “they which see not might see” is of course LITERAL (physical). This is what is “sweet as honey in the mouth” that Apostle John heard regarding this miracle. It benefits the body.But by “divine revelation” the intended message is “spiritual” that those who do not recognize Jesus Christ (the “truth”) can recognize HIM. This benefits the soul.To prove the miracles of Jesus Christ are “spiritual” and cannot be literal-physical, nowhere do we read “they which see might be made blind”! To just follow the LETTER or physical, therefore, Jesus Christ is a liar!Therefore, how many Bible believers accept the following TRUTH regarding the WORD of God? 2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. 2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
- Question:Can we cite more demonstrations for “sweet” and “bitter” from the word of God?Answer:BAPTISM – this was prophesied in the Old TestamentIsaiah 40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Isaiah 40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: This was fulfilled by John the Baptist: Matthew 3:3 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. John 3:23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. Religious sects perform BAPTISM literally, some “sprinkling of water to babes”, others “immersion in water of new members” all claiming Holy Spirit’s blessing.This is what is “sweet as honey in the mouth”.SPIRITUALLY, however, since JESUS CHRIST claims He is the “way” let us listen to Him: John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way… The following is “spiritual baptism”, and certainly this is “bitter” for it is a rebuke for not recognizing the True CHRIST. Spiritual water is the word of God”: Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word “Make straight a highway for our God” must refer to the identification of JESUS CHRIST leading to the identity of GOD. With BAPTISM, Jesus Christ is divinely revealed as Peter and Paul recognized HIM.
- “valley shall be exalted”For Jesus Christ as “spiritual valley” and this refers to His identity as simply “a man” in the Arian doctrine of Arius, a 2nd century theologian; yet He is worshipped although “He is not God”!
- “crooked shall be made straight”Jesus Christ in the JEHOVAH doctrine where He is simply considered a “mighty or junior God” and the FATHER the “Almighty God”, this must indeed be a “crooked way” of identifying Him!
- “rough places plain”Jesus Christ in the Oneness or Modalism doctrine appears to be “straight but rough” considering how proponents of this doctrine take the “letter” of the word of God. The warning: Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. The “dragon actually is Satan” also known as the Old Serpent the Devil (Revelation 12:9).
- “mountain and hill shall be made low”Jesus Christ in the “Trinity doctrine” shows Him simply as both God and man together with the FATHER and HOLY SPIRIT. Does not this doctrine appear too elevated that needs flattening?Very clearly, with spiritual BAPTISM, Peter and Paul recognized JESUS CHRIST preaching as Him the “real GOSPEL”. 2 Corinthians 11:4 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.
- Question:Now it can be concluded that this BOOK is really the HOLY BIBLE. So what is the primary purpose of God giving us His words in the Holy Bible?Answer:Everybody knows God is after the SOULS of men that He will provide with “His glorified body” in His Eternal Kingdom. 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
“sweet as honey IN THE MOUTH”
- Question:What other words in the Holy Bible are considered “sweet as honey”?Answer:To all Bible believers, who can deny that the following are like “sweet in the mouth” regarding JESUS CHRIST?
- With His birth, people celebrate CHRISTMAS.
- With His great teachings on MORALITY, people are happy for this provides peace and order.
- With His miracles, many people are benefited and so they praise God.
- With His death on the cross, people believe salvation is offered to everybody.
- With His resurrection, people rejoice for His great victory!
These are the “sweet in the mouth” that Apostle John found.
- Question:Are there still more “sweet things” from the word of God”?Answer:We read how Jesus Christ healed many diseases:
- In Mark 1:34, Jesus healed many that were sick of divers diseases
- In Mark 1:39, Jesus cast out devils
- In John 9:6, Jesus opened the eyes of the man born blind
- In Mark 7:33, Jesus opened the ears of the deaf, and touched the tongue of a man and began to speak
- In John 11 Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead
- Plus many more “miracles”
- Question:Does God through the Holy Bible interfere or meddle in the political affairs of the government?Answer:Since God is only after the SOUL He wants to save, He allows the people using “human wisdom” to plan, carry out, and do whatever is beneficial to them for their “physical life”. Jesus Christ made this very clear in the following through His leading apostles:Simon He named PETER:1 Peter 2:13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;Peter 2:14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.Peter 2:15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:PAUL, formerly named Saul of Tarsus:Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.Romans 13:2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: Romans 13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Romans 13:5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. Romans 13:6 For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Romans 13:7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
This is the provision of “separation of church and state” in the Constitution of many.
- Question:Who can now doubt that this BOOK is the Holy Bible?Answer:Perhaps, the following may be the “sweetest” things found in this BOOK when JESUS CHRIST told His Disciples:Mark 16:15-18 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; Mark 16:18 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.
We are all witnesses to the “great miracles” seen on television, and personal testimonies of many who received healing of various sicknesses. Incurable diseases like cancer of different kinds are healed to the amazement of the medical profession.
With this, propagation of the “gospel” accelerated to a great extent that people became very RELIGIOUS.
- Question:What other matters attracted the people to the Holy Bible?Answer:Many chapels, churches and imposing cathedrals are built where people congregate and find peace and serenity, all praising and thanking God.
BITTER IN THE BELLY
- Question:Now, how does God show that His words become “bitter in the belly”?Answer:“Bitter” in this instance is unpleasant for not wanting to hear the word because it hurts, and clearly contradictory to man’s understanding.
- QuestionWhy did God make His words “bitter in the belly” or not pleasant to know?Answer:“Bitter” to God is good as when He told the Israelites to eat “bitter herbs” in Exodus 12:8. This was towards their deliverance from slavery in Egypt.
- Question:How does “bitter” in the word lead to SPIRITUAL FREEDOM?Answer:It was shown how “sweet” the words are pertaining to Jesus Christ. Now, are the following words about HIM not “bitter” that “to swallow” they would lead to His true IDENTITY, and this point to the“real GOSPEL”.Very clear JESUS CHRIST is differently identified in the Christian religion, when He is actually the “real GOSPEL”. To repeat:2 Corinthians 11:4 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. Galatians 1:8 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. Galatians 1:9 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.Here are the “different Christ:
- To another group, this is their “GOSPEL” preaching “JESUS CHRIST” is only a “mighty or junior God”, for the FATHER is the “Almighty God”. This is the JEHOVAH doctrine initiated by Charles Taze Russel in the 18th century AD.
- From another group, the “GOSPEL” is preaching “Jesus Christ” is both God and man, the 2nd person of the Blessed Trinity, also known as the Trinity doctrine. This is also known as the “Athanasian Creed” professing “GOD is a mystery incapable of clear identification”.
- And finally, to this group the “GOSPEL” is “Jesus Christ” the name of the FATHER and the HOLY SPIRIT, also known as the “Oneness or Modalism doctrine”. This is the Sabellian doctrine, unaware of the warning. Quote:Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. The Dragon actually is the DEVIL and here he looks like Jesus Christ. However, he is exposed with his voice. While God speaks His “spiritual language”, the Devil is limited to the “letter” of the word as demonstrated by Jesus Christ “destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up”.
- Question:Since these doctrines do not represent the TRUE CHRIST, what are the verses that they do not preach?Answer:These are the verses “too bitter” to preach that many people will surely reject. However, they are the equivalent of “bitter herbs” that the CHOSEN of God “eat with eagerness”.2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seenare temporal; but the things which are not seenare eternal.2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. And the verse, the “most bitter”: John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the wordsthat I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
- Question:What is written about JESUS CHRIST that He is God?Answer:This is revealed to Apostle John who saw the “BOOK sealed with 7 seals”. Quote:1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Will not this get bitter as we read the claim of the FATHER, also known as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? Isaiah 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before methere was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. Isaiah 3:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. Theologians and Bible scholars have not succeeded reconciling these verses so as to identify the One True God. For being “bitter”, they just spit this out of their mouth, so to speak, for they say “This is a great mystery”. And so, they are worshipping GOD that they do not know!Unknown to them, this is the “real GOSPEL” identifying the TRUE CHRIST and this leads to the identity of GOD. This was revealed to Moses, Apostles Paul, Peter and John: Moses wrote the “testament of salvation” Genesis 17:7 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. Paul wrote how all nationalities are covered by the “testament of salvation”. Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free…for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Further writing for the term of the testament: Hebrews 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. Is not FATHER God the “maker or testator” of the testament of salvation? Now Paul wrote He must die! He is a “spirit”, however, nothing is impossible to HIM. So, Paul again wrote: 1 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. Theologians, Bible Scholars, and Bible translators using “human wisdom” cannot accept that God is capable of “manifesting Himself in the flesh”. Therefore, they substituted the word “GOD” with “He”, “Jesus Christ” in the NIV and other Bible versions. In the Confraternity Douay version of the Catholic Church the word “GOD” is even omitted. By divine revelation Peter identified JESUS CHRIST in the following: Matthew 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Matthew 16:17 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. Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
- Question:What did Peter see in JESUS calling Him “Christ”?Answer:Since CHRIST means “Messiah” or savior, Peter saw Him as Father GOD testifying to this role in Isaiah 43:10-11. Very clear, therefore, Peter saw JESUS performing two (2) roles:
Primary role as the FATHER:
- JESUS is the GOD!
- JESUS is the creator
- JESUS is the savior
- JESUS is the one performing miracles
- JESUS alone deserves worship
Secondary role as SON of GOD
- Jesus is not God!
- Jesus is NOT the savior
- Jesus cannot be co-creator
- Jesus cannot perform miracles
- Jesus does not deserve worship What Peter saw in JESUS, Paul later equally saw HIM, thus writing: Colosians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
- Question:Then, who died on the cross since JESUS is performing two roles?Answer:While very clearly written it was JESUS the Son of God who died on the cross, this is the “great mystery” that needs “divine revelation”. Generally accepted, however, nothing is impossible with God; so in His human body in that instance JESUS did not show His secondary role.This was revealed to Paul who recognized JESUS CHRIST after His death on the cross. Clearly demonstrated are the two distinct roles of Jesus. Paul perceived this and now speaking “spiritually”:
Paul must be referring to crucifixion on the “spiritual cross” for which the CHOSEN must undergo. And so Paul said at the same time claiming:
This is to avoid the kind of “death” in the following:
All the foregoing truth about JESUS CHRIST was revealed what FATHER God claimed in Isaiah 43:10-11. Apostle John wrote:
- Question:Is there anyone able to reconcile the foregoing verses revealing the identity of GOD of the Holy Bible for more than 2 millenniums from the birth of JESUS CHRIST?Answer:The answer is the best proof that, indeed, the Holy Bible is closed. NO ONE on earth or in heaven can answer the question without JESUS CHRIST revealing His true IDENTITY. Now we can understand the “real GOSPEL” is the identity of the TRUE CHRIST. It is hoped Religious Leaders and their followers open their eyes to this.
- Question: Now how does God open our eyes for the “much deeper discussion on salvation”?Answer:The basic truth:
- In the beginning God was alone and so He created MAN to be His eternal companion.
- MAN was created in the “image of God” that actually refers to Jesus in His role as “Son of God” to become model of the CHOSEN in humility. He has BODY, SOUL, and the SPIRIT of God.
- With MAN considering “Evolution” that actually is God’s plan of executing His “Creation”, at the exact second in God’s wisdom, He endowed SOUL to an “animal” and became a “human being” as we are today:Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. With “physical evidence”, this happened in the following: The first fossils of early modern humans to be identified were found in 1868 in the 27,000-23,000 BCE Cro-Magnon rock shelter site near the village of Les Eyzies in southwestern France. They were subsequently named the Cro-Magnon people. They were very similar in appearance to modern Europeans. Males were 5 feet 4 inches to 6 feet tall (1.6-1.8 m.) That was 4-12 inches (10-31 cm.) taller than Neandertals. Their skeletons and musculature generally were less massive than the Neandertals. The Cro-Magnon had broad, small faces with pointed chins and high foreheads. Their cranial capacities were up to 1590 cm3, which is relatively large even for people today. Around 200,000 years ago, Homo sapiens first appeared in East Africa. It is unclear to what extent these early modern humans had developed language, music, religionetc. They spread throughout Africaapproximately 50,000 years ago from which all modern humans are descended. Around 80–100,000 years ago, three main lines of Homo sapiens diverged, bearers of mitochondrial haplogroup L1 (mtDNA) / A (Y-DNA) colonizing Southern Africa(the ancestors of the Khoisan/Capoid peoples), bearers of haplogroup L2 (mtDNA)/ B (Y-DNA) settling Central and West Africa (the ancestors of Niger–Congo and Nilo-Saharan speaking peoples), while the bearers of haplo group L3 remained in East Africa.Human intelligence is manifested the way they invent new tools and ways of keeping warm and finding new sources of food (for example, adapting to ocean fishing based on prior fishing skills used in lakes and streams that became frozen) The "Great Leap Forward" leading to full behavioral modernity sets in only after this separation. Rapidly increasing sophistication in tool-making and behaviour is apparent from about 80,000 years ago, and the migration out of Africa follows towards the very end of the Middle Paleolithic, some 60,000 years ago. Fully modern behaviour, including figurative art, music, self-ornamentation, trade, burial rites etc. is evident by 30,000 years ago. The oldest unequivocal examples of prehistoric art date to this period, the Aurignacian and the Gravettian periods of prehistoric Europe, such as the Venus figurines and cave painting (Chauvet Cave) and the earliest musical instruments (the bone pipe of Geissenklösterle, Germany, dated to about 36,000 years ago).Improvement of intelligenceThe first City The fact that MAN began building cities and engaged in wars, these are the sign that they have the “intellect and feeling” we have today, the attributes of the SOUL. The city of Eridu, close to Uruk, was considered the first city in the world in the year 3700 BCE to 2800 BCE. The first War Throughout history, individuals, states, or political factions have gained sovereignty over regions through the use of war. The history of one of the earliest civilizations in the world, that of Mesopotamia, is a chronicle of nearly constant strife. Even after Sargon the Great of Akkad (2334-2279 BCE) unified the region under the Akkadian Empire. The foregoing very clearly shows MAN at that time acquired “intellect and feeling”, the attributes of our SOUL. Therefore, what we read in the Holy Bible how God “created MAN” just expressed in the “letter” now becomes “physical” or real. Only GOD knows the exact time in “seconds” that the following was applied: Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Very clear MAN was just a “Natural Man”:
1 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.Everything we read in the Old Testament books are just “parables” that needs “divine revelation” as God decides:
Psalms 78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: And here is Jesus Christ speaking according to Mark:
Mark 4:34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples. Question:
What did God do to continue His PLAN having eternal companions?
Since God is a SPIRIT, He cannot deal personally with MAN. And so, He gave us this “BOOK sealed with 7 seals that only Jesus Christ can open” (Revelation 5:1-5). Clearly this refers to the Holy Bible. For how many serious Bible readers realized, “to read it cover-to-cover trying to know with “human wisdom” would say, “You will surely go crazy to fully understand its message”.
Indeed, the Natural Man without the SPIRIT of God cannot “open” or understand the “intended message” of the Holy Bible. And so we are witnesses how different doctrines for salvation are now being preached.
Now, what can we say about the Holy Bible wherein we read:
Hebrews 10:7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me, to do thy will, O God.
The phrase “to do thy will, O God” is the best proof that the Old Testament books of the Holy Bible are just “symbols or signs” to be realized in the New Testament when JESUS CHRIST was born. This is the best evidence that Evolution very clearly is Creation’s other half.
Does not all these “mysteries” regarding God’s plan of having Eternal Kingdom prove that HUMAN WISDOM is nil, nothing in the eyes of God?
And so, these “sweet and bitter message” of God must open the eyes of Bible believers that, in His eyes they are all “spiritually dead”:
Proverbs 21:16 The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead. Truly so, God’s standard of salvation is based on true “spiritual humility”, as Jesus Christ emphasized: Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
What then is the 1st step to know the “true GOSPEL”?
Since the beginning, God wanted MAN to humble himself like a “babe” in order to teach him:
Isaiah 28:9 KJV 1611 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
NIV and other versions changed (.) to (?) as if this is impossible. But Jesus Christ expounded on it:
Jesus Christ reminded His listeners on the importance of HUMILITY:
Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Is it not unfortunate that Religious Leaders are doing the opposite? With their own effort they study the Holy Bible, but the more GOD hides His “intended message” to them. This is what Jesus Christ saw in the Scribes and Pharisees, the teachers and doctors of the law. Now it is understandable why He called them, “Blind guides leading the blind”.
Did not the Religious Leaders see and talk to JESUS CHRIST but they did not recognize Him?
Open our eyes and this truth has not passed away, only confirming what was “truth yesterday is truth today”. We can see the Religious Leaders today in the same mindset as their counterparts during the time of Christ. They have complete access to the Holy Bible regarding the IDENTITY of Jesus Christ, but look how they introduce HIM to the people – the 4 different “CHRISTS”, and so their different “GOSPELS”. By way of review let us see how Religious Leaders see Jesus Christ today:JESUS CHRIST is both God and man, the 2nd person of the Blessed Trinity (doctrine defended by Athanasius in the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D). JESUS CHRIST is the “name” of the FATHER and HOLY SPIRIT (Oneness doctrine or Modalism espoused by Sabellius a 3rd century Theologian). Warning:
Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. JESUS CHRIST is only a man and not God (the Arian doctrine espoused by Arius in 256–336 AD, a Christian presbyter in Alexandria, Egypt).JESUS CHRIST is only a “mighty or minor God” for the FATHER is the “Almighty God” named JEHOVAH. This doctrine was espoused by Charles Taze Russell in 1879 just a derivative of the teaching of Arius for there can only be 1 true God.Does not the foregoing very clearly correspond to how people at Caesarea Philippi recognized Jesus Christ? Matthew 16:13 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? Matthew 16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art (1) John the Baptist: some, (2) Elias; and others, (3) Jeremias, or (4) one of the prophets. However, today since the JEHOVAH doctrine is just a simple derivative of the “Arian doctrine of Arius”, does not God reveal the “symbol of SATAN” through the false CHRISTbeing preached today? Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. “Buy or sell” very clearly points to how “Tithes and Offering” is taken literally involving money, when the “intended message” is the very word of God serving as “spiritual food”. Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (“666”) Number 6 is the number of man indicating it is just human perception. Very clear the symbol “666” for the 3 different doctrines how people recognize Jesus Christ. Question:
As regards “Tithes and offering” interpreted to mean MONEY, did not Jesus Christ rebuke the Religious Leaders on this?
Now we read how Jesus Christ rebuked the Religious Leaders:
Matthew 23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
Matthew 23:19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? This indicates “spiritual” instead of “physical offering”. “Spiritual offering refers to the “word of truth” eaten with the person in “individual evangelism”. “Physical offering is money for the benefit of the Religious Leaders.
What further demonstrations for bitter taste in the word?
Take for example the commandment “thou shalt not steal”, Religious Leaders preach and follow this “literally” and MORALITY must really be “sweet” to them and to the people. Instilling honesty brings peace and harmony among people.
But once Jesus “open the BOOK” Religious Leaders will be dumbfounded to realize they the very “thieves and robbers”. Our Lord says:
John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. Religious Leaders tell their followers the “door” is their respective “doctrines of salvation”. However, Jesus Christ said: John 10:9 I am the door… How can they pass through the “door” when they do not know the “True CHRIST? They do not steal material things, but they rob HIM of His honor and glory. They read this, but they cannot see they are the ones alluded to: Matthew 23:8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
Rabbi means Teacher, Pastor, Minister, or leader. Are they not taking these “titles”? Do not some Religious Leaders enjoy being called “FATHER”? And what is even worse is to be addressed “holy and reverend” that God warned since Old Testament time.
Psalms 111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. Question:
How can the Religious Leaders justify this despicable act before God?
Look, the following nullifies all justifications that the Religious leaders present to the people, as this refers to God and His words:
James 2:9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
How does God express His indignation on the matter?
Everybody reads the following, but the Religious Leaders because of “spiritual blindness” cannot feel the sting of our Lord’s sharp rebuke:
Matthew 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
How shrewd and crafty Satan is?
While many Religious Leaders think they bring people to God, they do not know they do the exact opposite. Quote:
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Jesus Christ showed His indignation on the Religious Leaders. Is it not “religiosity” by simply preaching MORALITY? This exposes them to be hypocrites! Hence, our Lord’s very sharp rebuke: Matthew 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
Matthew 23:28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but withinye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
In “breaking the seals and opening the book” as we read in Revelation 5:1-5, shall we expect more “bitter things”?
What appears to be “sweet” now turns “bitter” as Jesus Christ open the BOOK regarding the following:
Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mark 16:18 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. In “my name”, taken to the “letter” or literally very clear refers to JESUS CHRIST. And so, we hear and witness preachers made many people believed they are healed from their sickness “literally-physically”. This confirmed and substantiated medically to be true.
How can these “miracles” relate to the truth that the “True Christ” does not perform miracles benefitting the “flesh” or the body? We read: John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the wordsthat I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. Also, it is not what “is seen”, but the “unseen” that JESUS CHRIST came to save the SOUL and not the body: 2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
What does JESUS CHRIST mean in saying, “In my NAME…”
Very clear this does not refer to His literal name “Jesus Christ” for even the Devil can cite and use this. That is why He warns Christians in the following:
Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name (Jesus Christ ) and in thy name (Jesus Christ ) have cast out devils? and in thy name(Jesus Christ ) done many wonderful works?
Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
So, what does JESUS CHRIST mean “In my name”...
Hidden from many Bible believers, it is His “name” revealed in the following:
Revelation 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. The “Word of God” must be Jesus’ “secret name” that very clearly refers to His “intended message” from the “letter” or written words! Therefore, this is the TRUTH by “divine revelation”. Do many people accept the “intended message” of God from His words?
Could this “name” distinguish the two (2) roles of JESUS CHRIST in the following?
In the following these (2) roles of JESUS CHRIST are clearly distinguished:
Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I (JESUS CHRIST) make a pillar in the temple of my God (Jesus the Son), … and I will write upon him the name of my God (Jesus the Son), … and I will write upon him my new name(JESUS the Father). Quite illuminating Jesus the Son’s statement refers to one person having two (2) roles. Thus, we read: John 10:30 I and my father are one. Humanly speaking, this is easy to comprehend: A certain person is the “husband to his wife, and father to his daughter. His two distinct roles cannot be interchanged.
How “sweet” are the aforementioned verses in the beginning?
They are “sweet” because by not recognizing the TRUE CHRIST, His “literal name” (Jesus Christ ) is used that even Satan knows. And so the DEVIL grabs this opportunity to deceive people:
With the LITERAL name (Jesus Christ ) many diseases are healed. Warning:
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the wordsthat I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. Diseases referring to the BODY are healed, but all these end in the grave. Let us remember God is after the SOUL and not the BODY. Therefore, healing to God is not physical but spiritual healing of the SOUL. Example, what we read in the Holy Bible Jesus opened the eyes of the blind so as to see the surroundings.
Actually, the message was for the “spiritually blind” to recognize the True CHRIST. In truth, we were all born spiritually blind in not recognizing the JESUS CHRIST that the One True God remains a mystery. But now the eyes of the real Christians are opened and can see the different “gospels” being spread by Religious Leaders. The “real GOSPEL” is JESUS CHRIST! For emphasis: 2 Corinthians 11:4 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.
- With the LITERAL name (Jesus Christ ) evil spirits are cast out.
Very clear this is appreciated by people because they see “devil-possessed” persons come to their senses. But Spiritual “casting out devils” is to purge and denounce falsehoods that deceive people. Therefore, for people “casting out devils” is just a temporary relief from mental disorientation, but never do they know the TRUTH. Hence, the enemy of God must be very happy.
- With the LITERAL name (Jesus Christ ) many solicited favors are granted they call “miracles from God”. But as JESUS CHRIST warned:
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christ, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Again very clear, these refer to material-physical things that are “seen and therefore temporal”. All these end in the grave.
What lesson does God give us regarding His words that are “bitter in the belly”?
This is exactly what God showed the Israelites when they were leaving Egypt and to be freed from slavery. He required them to eat “bitter herbs”.
Exodus 12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. And so today, “bitter words” are Jesus Christ “intended message” in opening the BOOK. These are what deliver us from SPIRITUAL SLAVERY. How many professing Christians realize SATAN the “god of this world” is Pharaoh to the Israelites? 2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Did not Jesus Christ rebuke the Religious Leaders for their followers to open their eyes?
Matthew 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Luke 6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch
How did Jesus Christ through His “bitter words” separate the “chosen” from the “called”?
This happened at PENTECOST when Jesus Christ in His role as Father promised His Disciples to come and give them the Comforter:
John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
Very clear JESUS in His role as FATHER is the HOLY SPIRIT that the Disciples received and then endowed with “cloven tongues”?
Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. “Cloven tongue” implies speaking of “morality for physical life” and “spirituality for the soul”.
The Apostles with their “cloven tongue” spoke to the people. “Devout men” from different countries, meaning those “who have different doctrines for salvation” understood the “spiritual message” heard from the Apostles.
Others, however, ridiculed the Apostles thinking they are “drunk with new wine” because they could not understand what the Apostles were talking. This truth has not passed away in our time. Articles in this website vividly illustrate this “new tongue”.Question:
Did Jesus Christ give a warning for these deceptions?
Everybody reads the warning of JESUS CHRIST regarding preaching of “other Christ ”:
Matthew 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ (another Christ), or there (still another Christ); believe it not.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs (4 in number as mentioned in Matthew 16:13-14), and false prophets (who do not recognize the True CHRIST), and shall shew great signs and wonders (those “seen”); insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Matthew 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.Question:
Can we now compare the people at Caesarea Philippi how they missed the true identity of Jesus Christ, with many people do today?
It is exactly the same. We read in the following:
Matthew 16:13 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?
Matthew 16:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist(1): some, Elias(2); and others, Jeremias(3), or one of the prophets (3.a.)
JESUS CHRIST is the name of God (Oneness or Modalism). This is the doctrine of Sabellius. Warning:
Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
Revelation 12:9 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. Jesus Christ speaks the “spiritual language”, while Satan (dragon) speaks the “literal-physical language”.
(Fasting of Jesus in Matthew 4:4 “bread” instead of the “word of God)JESUS CHRIST is only a MAN and not GOD, and yet believers worship Him. This is the doctrine Arian doctrine.JESUS CHRIST is only a “mighty or junior God” for the FATHER is the Almighty God (JEHOVAH doctrine of Charles Taze Russell in 1872, just a derivative of the Arian doctrine.)JESUS CHRIST is both man and God, and He is the 2nd person of the TRINITY (defended by Athanasius in the Nicaen Council of 325 ADWill not these three (3) major false identities of JESUS CHRIST reveal the “666” mark of Satan in the following?
Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Question:
What does “buy and sell” having the “mark on the right hand and foreheads” refer to?
It is not merchandise or food, as preached but the “word of God” that Religious Leaders “feed their flock” as they claim. They substitute MONEY instead of the following “tithes and offering”, a decree in the Old Testament:
Deuteronomy 14:22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
Deuteronomy 14:23 And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.
Very clear “tithes and offering” is a parable that needs “divine revelation” for its implementation. And so, the following:
“corn” – it is processed into literal bread, the spiritual equivalent of which is the “word of God” that is “food for the SOUL”.
“wine” – in the Last Supper Jesus Christ referred to it for “His blood”, shedding of which is the availability of the HOLY SPIRIT.
“oil” – in several verses, both in the Old and New Testament, refers to “Holy Spirit anointing”.
“firstling” – clearly refers to JESUS CHRIST the “Son of God first-born among many brethren” (Romans 8:29), the TRUTH John 14:6).
However, “Semi-biblical Christianity” for substituting MONEY for the foregoing led to interpretating “physical hunger for literal bread without the ‘666’ mark on the right hand and foreheads”.
What is the great deception regarding the “false GOSPEL”?
The deception lies on how the words in the Holy Bible are taken. They are perceived to be LITERAL instead of SPIRITUAL! A typical example is when Jesus Christ fasted 40 days and 40 nights, as we all read in Matthew 4:1-4.
Do not many people take “fasting literally”? And so, they imitate Jesus the “Son of God” by not eating also. SATAN perceived the same thing by telling JESUS to “turn the stones into bread”.
What did we hear from JESUS? This is SPIRITIUAL to hunger for the WORD, and not for LITERAL BREAD.
Matthew 4:4 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. Question:
How important is our discussion regarding the “real GOSPEL” that pertains to the True Christ?
It is at Judgment Day when the people will face God. To many, this is what they will be confronted with:
Luke 13:26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
Luke 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. And, to the Religious Leaders who perform “signs and wonders” mistaken for MIRACLES, they will be dumbfounded when they hear the sharp rebuke of our Lord: Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name (Jesus Christ)? and in thy name (Jesus Christ) have cast out devils? and in thy name (Jesus Christ) done many wonderful works?
Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Luke 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
But to the CHOSEN comes the blessing. With the BODY turned “into dust”, the SOUL will then be endowed with the “glorified body of Jesus Christ” as written:
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.Question:
Very clear these are the “sweet and bitter” words of the Holy Bible. By way of review;
how do we go straight to the “bitter” message of God from His words so as to know the “real GOSPEL”?
“Bitter” in the word are the contradictory verses for the clear identification of GOD. In the Old Testament, here is the FATHER, also called the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, claiming to be the only GOD and Savior:
Isaiah 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
Isaiah 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. However, to John, Luke, and the other Apostles they attest to the following regarding JESUS CHRIST as the only God and Savior: 1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
This must be the GEAT MYSTERY to many people, a clear demonstration of the WORD becoming “bitter in the belly”.
How can God, by divine revelation, introduce Himself from the seemingly contradictory verses?
Let us read the following where the FATHER made the “Testament of Salvation”.
Genesis 17:7 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.
We will notice only Abraham and his offspring are the beneficiaries, but God revealed to Paul other nationalities are included:
Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free…for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs accordingto the promise.
What is the term or condition of the Testament of Salvation of the FATHER?
Again this is revealed to Paul who recognized Jesus Christ personally:
Hebrews 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. Perhaps many Bible believers on reading this, they will just ignore it or even close the Holy Bible for how can a “Spirit God” die?Question:
In the testament, very clear FATHER God needs to fulfill it with His own death, but the problem is how can He do it when He is a SPIRIT?
We all know nothing is impossible with God. And so, this is what He revealed to Paul, again writing:
1 Timothy (KJV 1611) 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit…
Many Bible versions like the NIV, ASV and other versions instead of GOD the word HE is substituted. In the Confraternity Douay Version of the Catholic Church, the word GOD is omitted.
Very clear, this points to GOD the Father becoming a human being in the person of JESUS CHRIST. The following will finally solve the mystery of the “identity of God”.
FATHER God said, “I am he” in Isaiah 43:10, further claiming “beside me there is no Savior”, as we read in Isaiah 43:11.And here is JESUS CHRIST emphatically telling His listeners:
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
Very clear JESUS CHRIST is the FATHER in the flesh and now ready to die on the cross to fulfill the FATHER’S Testament of Salvation. Do we need to repeat that FATHER God is actually JESUS CHRIST?!Question:
But why is it written Jesus is also called “Son of God”, the “Anointed One”?
In the wisdom of God, He knows dying on the cross in His person of Jesus Christ is not enough. The CHOSEN need a model in humility for spiritual perfection. This was revealed to Paul in:
Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. And so to Simon Peter: 1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:Question:
What proof JESUS in His role as Son is not God?
In one instance, Jesus did not admit He is good:
Luke 18:18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
Luke 18:19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.
And here, Jesus did not admit He is omniscient as the Father when asked about the “Second coming of Christ”: Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.Question:
Now what is the conclusion regarding the truth to the “real GOSPEL”?
Very clear identifying the TRUE CHRIST is the “real GOSPEL”. This leads us to the Father, also known as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.Question:
Who is JESUS CHRIST in His human body?
Very clear JESUS CHRIST had to 2 different roles:As the FATHER who made the Testament of Salvation: JESUS is the CreatorJESUS is the SaviorJESUS is the one performing miraclesJESUS alone deserves worshipAs SON of God, Jesus is not God, hence, He does not deserve worshipJesus is not the Savior because He did not make the Testament of SalvationJesus is not the CreatorJesus was not the one performing miracles
These two roles of Jesus Christ can be illustrated in the following:
He is like a MAN with his well-defined two roles as the HUSBAND of his wife, and the FATHER of his daughter. These two roles cannot be interchangedQuestion:
At Pentecost who was the HOLY SPIRIT?
Let us remember Jesus Christ made this promise to His Disciples, definitely He must be in His role as the FATHER.
John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
Matthew 28:20 … lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.Question:
Then, who is the GOD to be seen in heaven on the THRONE as Apostle John saw in a vision in:
Revelation 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
Very clear it is JESUS CHRIST in His “glorified body” with which the CHOSEN will be endowed with:
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.Question:
What is God’s revelation regarding JESUS CHRIST “sitting at the right hand of God”?
Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
Since God is speaking His “spiritual language”, “right hand” does not mean position but POWER OF GOD as revealed:
Exodus 15:6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. All the foregoing now validates JESUS CHRIST in His role as FATHER is truly the one TRUE GOD: 1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son JESUS CHRIST. This is the true God, and eternal life. Conclusion: Colosians 1:26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: Very clearly seen now, preaching the “real GOSPEL” must come from the revelation of God, and this may be our parting words. Let us accept the message in the HOLY BIBLE that it can only be expounded by “divine revelation” sans HUMAN WISDOM. And so, these verses that are totally ignored by RELIGIOUS LEADERS should convict them: John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
If indeed the foregoing is the GOSPEL preached by the Apostles, who are the Apostles to whom Jesus Christ introduced Himself personally?
To PAUL, formerly known as Saul of Tarsus, on his way to Damascus, and heard a voice:
Act 22:7 And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
Act 22:8 And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest. Very clear, Paul before knowing Jesus Christ his GOD was the “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob”. In this incident, his GOD introduced Himself to be JESUS CHRIST Himself!
To SIMON PETER who answered the question of Jesus after the people at Caesarea Philippi did not recognize Him: Matthew 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Matthew 16:16 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. Here, Simon Peter very clearly recognized JESUS CHRIST is the GOD in the Old Testament, but now performing two roles: as the FATHER, and SON in His human form.
After revealing the “real GOSPEL”, what do we hear from GOD as His rebuke to Religious Leaders preaching “another GOSPEL”?
Matthew 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing… And so, this curse upon them: Galatians 1:8 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.
Galatians 1:9 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. END
