DEITY MANIFESTED in Messiah

DEITY MANIFESTED in Messiah

Bro. Thomas was quite accurate in describing the various allusions to Deity in this amazing diagram of the Messiah Christ Jesus, and His Character and Mission to the WORLD . . He shall soon appear

1 Beloved, now are we the sons of Elohim, 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. JOEL 3:2

VOX DEI By Mr. …

VOX DEI By Mr. Islip Collier:

Chapter 9

THE UNWILLING WITNESS {continued]

After the general consideration of the phase of the argument in the last chapter, we may pass under rapid review the various other prophecies of the Old Testament Scriptures which have been subject of controversy.

In  the one hundred and tenth Psalm there is a prophecy which is referred to in the New Testament as applying directly to Christ Jesus.  Christ Jesus only quoted the first part of it with the object of showing that the Messiah was to be more than a mere man.

“The Lord said unto my lord, Sit thou at my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstool.”

If David called Him Lord, how is he then his son?

If it be granted that David was the author of the Psalm, and that prophecy related to the Messiah who was to come, the argument was a good one.  Among the Jews there was far more respect for the parents than we find in modern Gentile lands and the title lord applied by the Israelitish king to any of his descendants would indicate something quite exceptional in the one so addressed.  There are some more signifcant features of this prophecy which Jesus Christ did not quote and which at once challenge the antagonism of one who repudiates the special claims of the Bible.  He is practically compelled to deny that it refers to the Messiah at all.

We remember the contention of the objector who made some claims to learning, that a slight knowledge of Hebrew would convince anyone that the Psalm was simply an address to one of the Maccabees and that it had no reference to the Messiah.

This argument is not quite honest.  It is painfully reminiscent of old and discredited methods whoch have too often been employed on the Christian side.  Many theologians have attempeted to shelter behind their learninng, and with terrifying sentences, freely interloaded with adjectives, have sought to establish their positions by branding their opponents as “unlearned and ignorant men.”

There have doubtless been instances of poems which were only intended to have local and contemporary application being given an extended meaning by editors, but there have been still more instances of great and enduring poems being so edited as to be given a topical significance far removed from the intention of the original writer.  There are many prophecies in the Old Testament regarding the coming of a great deliverer.  The sceptic has a right to claim that this is only natural, especially among people who were often in trouble and who needed the comforting assurance that some day a hero would come to deliver them.  The Christian has a right to point out there would be a natural tendency to apply the prophecy to each successsive leader as he appeared, and such application is no evidence of the prophet’s intention.

The point of the argument is that the prophecy is different from anything that might have been expected in a merely human expression of national aspirations, and yet in these peculiar details, it fits the case of Jesus Christ exactly.

All attentive readers will notice that there is a difference in type used for Lord, indicating different words in the original.  The Psalm begins.  “The LORD said unto my Lord.”  The Covenant name is used as indicated by the capitals, “~YAHWEH~ said unto my Adon, Sit thou at My right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstool.”

What man, however great his eminence, was to sit at the right hand of ~YAHWEH~ waiting till his foes should be made his footstool:  How could such a prediction be fulfilled?

It is easy to understand the first disciples calling this Psalm to mind when they became convinced that Jesus Christ Had been raised from the dead and taken to Heaven.  Here was  the explanation of the one who was to rule in ZION being addressed by ~YAHWEH~ in such a manner; here was the explaination of this period of waiting at the right hand of GOD, an idea which seemed utterly unintelligible in connection with any other man.

The Psalm goes on to declare, “Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power: —surely implying a day of weakness in which they would not be willlng, and very significant in view of that period of waiting for the manifestation of power.

Finally there is the assurance to this Lord of the Psalmist, “Thou art a Priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.”  If the great ruler referred to was to come of the tribe of Judah [and that is the most probable assumption despite the suggestion regarding the Maccabees], for Him to be a priest whould involve a change in the law, for priests under the law were of the tribe of Levi.  Again there is a prefect harmony of ideas.  Melchizedek was a king as well as a Priest.  He was described in the book of Genesis as “King of Salem, the priest of the Most High GOD.”  He was obviously superior to the Levitical order of priests.

GOD MANIFESTATION

MEN were NOT ushered into being for the purpose of being saved or lost, GOD Manifestation NOT human salvation was the GRAND purpose of the ETERNAL Spirit. The salvation of a multitude is incidental to the Manifestation, but was not the end proposed. The ETERNAL SPIRIT

intended to enthrone HIMSELF on the earth, and in so doing to develope a Divine Family from among men, everyone of whom shall be “SPIRIT” because–“Born of the SPIRIT”, and that this family shall be large enough to fill the Earth, WHEN PERFECTED, to the entire exclusion of FLESH and BLOOD.

NIMROD the MIGHTY HUNTER ~ ~ ~

NIMROD the Mighty Hunter

[PREFACE ]

Let the Reader be reminded of the works of GOD in the book know through out the world as the WORD of GOD [Romans 15:4]. That this “WORD” in its common adaptation is The BIBLE, and in order to bring you messages of comfort and assurance to BUILD you UP and not Tear Down, to bring HOPE in a time of hopelessness, and to renew your confidence in a creation in its final stage of “STRUM and DRANG” that is, storm and stress.

Thus being committed and educated to such a situation, we would in the following passages quoted, bring you this brief summary, in illustration of its sublime message, from the author of the book ” ELPIS ISRAEL  ” written by a remarkable gentleman of Richmond Virginia, Dr. John Thomas [1834-1868], a physician of both the spirit and body of human suffering, and that for the purpose of enlightenment and courage you might continue your life with dignity and joy at the nearness of its consummation. The Kingdom of GOD ~YAHWEH~ Elohim of Israel and Jesus Christ our soon coming King. [Isaiah 2, Numbers 14:21, Daniel 2:44,]

The Master, and our Lord, Jesus Christ has given us such assurance in the following:

” BE of GOOD CHEER ! for I have OVERCOME THE WORLD!”

______________________________________________________________

The Constitution of Sin.

“The creature was made subject to evil, not willingly, but by reason of him who subjected it in hope.”

The introduction of sin into the world necessitated the constitution of things as they were laid in the beginning. If there had been no sin there would have been no “enmity” between GOD and man; and consequently no antagonism by which to educe good out of evil. Sin and evil are as cause and effect. GOD is the author of evil, but not of sin; for the evil is the punishment of sin. “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I, the Lord, do all these things.” “Shall there be evil in a city, and the Lord hath not done it?” The evil then to which man is subjected is the Lord’s doing. War, famine, pestilence, flood, earthquake, disease, and death, are the terrible evils which God inflicts upon mankind for their transgressions. Nations cannot go to war when they please, any more than they can shake the earth at their will and pleasure; neither can they preserve peace, when He proclaims war. Evil is the artillery with which He combats the enemies of His law, and of His saints; consequently, there will be neither peace nor blessedness for the nations, until sin is put down, His people avenged, and truth and righteousness be established in the earth.

This is the constituted order of things. It is the constitution of the world; and as the world is sin’s dominion, or the kingdom of the adversary, it is the constitution of the kingdom of sin.

The Constitution of MEN — THE KINGDOM of GOD

The former things being admitted, if men would be esteemed righteous by GOD, they must become such by constitution also. The “good actions” of a pious sinner are mere “dead works”; for the actions of a sinner to be of any worth in relation to the future state, he must be “constituted righteous”; and this can only be by his coming under a constitution made and provided for the purpose. A stranger and foreigner from the commonwealth of the States, can only become a fellow-citizen with Americans, by taking the oath of abjuration, fulfilling the time of his probation, and taking the oath of allegiance according to the provisions of the constitution.

Now, The Kingdom of GOD has a constitution as well as the Kingdom of Satan, or that province of it styled the United States. Before sinners come under it, they are characterized as “without Jesus Christ, being aliens from the Commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without GOD (a[qeoi, atheists) in the world”. They are termed “far off”, “strangers and foreigners” “walking in the vanity of their mind, having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of GOD through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart”. But, mark the sacred style descriptive of sinners after they have been placed under the constitution of Israel’s Commonwealth, which is the Kingdom of GOD. “You that were far off are made nigh by the blood of Jesus Christ”; “through him you have access by one spirit to the Father; and are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the Saints, and of the household of GOD”—”fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of promises of GOD in Christ Jesus by the gospel“. In this remarkable contrast is discoverable a great change in state and character predicated of the same persons. How was this transformation effected? This question is answered by the phrase, “In Jesus Christ by the Gospel”. The “in” expresses the state; the “by” the instrumentality by which the state and character are changed.

The Man of Sin.

“The Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition.”

The Dragon, the Old Serpent, surnamed the Devil and Satan, being representative of Sin in its imperial constitution, as manifested in the past, present, and future, upon “the Habitable“, or Roman territory; the Man of Sin is that dynasty, “whose coming was after the energy of the Adversary with all power, and tokens, and prodigies of falsehood, and with all the deceit of iniquity in them that perish”. This is what he was in his coming, or presence. The power is styled, “the Man of Sin” not because it is to be found in only one man, but because it is sin preeminently incarnate in an order of men. This order occupying one throne, was to “be revealed” out of an apostasy from the original apostolic faith; but before its presence could be manifested, a certain obstacle was to “be taken out of the way”. No order of men such as the apostle describes, could make its appearance upon the territory of the Roman Dragon, so long as the constitution of the empire continued pagan. This, then, was the obstacle to be removed. While it continued, the elements of the new power were at work in the Christian body; but incapable of the exercise of political authority. These elements are collectively styled “the Mystery of Iniquity”, the open manifestation of which was withheld for a time.

When the “Red” or pagan aspect of the Dragon was changed for the “Catholic“, by the victories of Constantine, the opposing power was removed; in fact, the Adversary, or Satan, now a professor of Christianity, took “the Mystery of Iniquity” under his patronage; and as he found paganism no longer fit for the contest against the apostolic faith, he determined to change his weapon, and to fight it with the apostasy in the name of Christ. Hence, the first thing he did was to impose this apostasy on the world as its religion. He married it to the state, and established it by law. The National Establishment, as it now became, assumed the character of “Mother Church”; and the community in Old Rome, with its bishop now converted into the chief magistrate of the city at its head, claimed to be the mistress of all churches. The apostasy being united to Satan, became the open enemy of God, and the worse than pagan persecutor of His truth. Its name is Catholic; and since the division of the Dragon territory into east and west, and the great schism about image-worship, it is surnamed Greek Catholic, and Roman Catholic. The undivided catholic apostasy in its first establishment is represented in the Apocalypse by “a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars”. This woman, after nine months of years, or “a set time”, and not long before she was clothed with the imperial robes, was “pained to be delivered” of her child, which had been conceived in her by sin. As the betrothed of the Second Adam, the Serpent had beguiled her, and had corrupted her mind from the simplicity that is in Christ. Part of her body had embraced another Jesus, another Spirit, and another gospel; by which they were so corrupted that they were prepared to take the sword; declare for the first military chieftain, whose anti-pagan ambition of supreme power should induce him to embrace their cause; and to turn Christianity into a State Religion. This party found a semi-pagan suited to their purpose in Constantine, surnamed “the Great”. When he avowed himself their champion, all the power of the Old Serpent was brought to bear against him and his confederates. They fought; and victory perched upon the standard of the Cross, now become “the mark” of the Apostasy.

The current state of affairs in the year of our Lord 2008, has directed our attention to the figure of NIMROD and that way in which the CHEMELION or CHANGER, Body Shifter, Saboteur, and the “REBEL” appear and are then gone and then reappear, However: from the beginning of Eden [Genesis 3:15]

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

There has been a CONTINUOUS controversy, from the Expulsion of Adam and his wife Eve, in a line of the REBELIOUS, and DISOBEDIENT: Of Cain, NIMROD, Nebuchadnessar, Ceasar, Constantine, the Papacy, and in the Line OBEDIENT, and RIGHTEOUS: of ABEL, Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David and Jesus Christ. And this will continue until the return of Jesus Christ from Heaven to bring it all to a conclusion in the Judgement of this world and the setting up of the KINGDOM of GOD. Here in then our excitement to bring to your attention such wonderful news of the Gospel message and its outcome.

______________

CONCLUSION

In Summary then, we are found in the World but not, “of the World”, that by STORM and STRESS, and the Chastening of this our GOD and Father, and that by HIS benevolent Spirit and the Ehohistic power, find in ourselves a change for good knowing this that our Father in Heaven would not that any should perish, but have life EVERLASTING. So dear reader it is my desire also for you that you might receive this message and rejoice as I and many of our fellow believers in the Faith Once taught by the Apostles.

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus Christ will GOD bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. {prevent: or, come before, or, anticipate, or, precede}

16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a ~shout~ , with the voice of the Archangel, and with The Trump of GOD: and the dead in Jesus Christ shall rise first:

[I Thessalonians 4:13-16]

MACHPELAH of Canaan or Heaven beyond the Skies?

PREFACE .

It is with great pleasure that I am able to bring another segment of the TRUTH to all who might hear the GOOD NEWS the Kingdom of GOD and Jesus Christ Via Mr. John Thomas of the CHRISTADELPHIANS WORLDWIDE ~

ED: Curtis H. Brittle

. ~ MACHPELAH of Canaan or Heaven beyond the Skies ~ .

Having visited Egypt a second time, they were introduced into Joseph’s house, when Simeon was restored to them. On Joseph’s entrance, "they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance." They were placed at table in regular order, from the eldest to the youngest; and they ate, drank and were merry with Joseph, still supposing him to be an Egyptian. Having departed on their return to Canaan, Joseph caused them to be pursued, and brought back, under pretence of having stolen his drinking cup. At this second interview, Judah made supplication for his brethren; and confessed that GOD had found out the iniquity of himself and brethren; and that they were now fairly the servants of the Lord of Pharaoh’s Kingdom. Judah having finished, Joseph could refrain no longer, but wept aloud, and announced himself as their brother, whom they had sold into Egypt. They were greatly troubled at his presence; but he tranquillized their fears, and assured them that it was all of GOD, who had sent him before them into Egypt to "preserve them a posterity in the earth, and to save their lives by a great deliverance".

Jacob having received information of all that had been transacted, proceeded to break up his encampment, and to go down into Egypt as Joseph and Pharaoh had invited him to do. Isaac had been dead ten years, and Jacob had attained the age of one hundred and thirty. Having arrived at Beer-sheba on his way thither, he offered sacrifices to the God of Isaac. On this occasion, God spake unto him, and said, "I am GOD, the GOD of thy father; fear not to go down into Egypt: for I will there make of thee a great nation: I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes." In this promise Jacob was re-assured of a resurrection to Life. The action of putting the hand upon the eyes represents death; for this was one of the last offices of the nearest relations. Hence, to tell Jacob he should die, and yet that he should be brought up again, was telling him in effect that he should rise from the dead again to possess the land.

Seventeen years having passed away after his arrival in Egypt, the time drew nigh that Jacob must die. This residence in the land of Ham had not at all diminished his attachment to the land of Canaan. When, therefore, he found his end approaching, he took an oath of Joseph, saying, "Bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt: but I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt, and bury me in their burying-place". And Joseph promised to do as he had said. But why was Jacob thus anxious? Surely it could make no difference to him where he should crumble into dust! Nor would it, if Jacob had been a faithless Gentile; or a religionist whose mind was perverted by Platonism. He would have cared nothing about his body; all his solicitude would have been about his "immortal soul". But in Jacob’s death-bed scene, he expressed no anxiety about "his soul"; all his care was for his body after death, that it might be duly deposited in the cave of

Machpelah, where Abraham, Isaac, Sarah, Rebekah, and Leah were sleeping. This was equally the case with Joseph; for although Egypt had been the theatre of his glory, and he was venerated there as the saviour of the country, in which he had also lived ninety-three years, yet his last thoughts were upon the land of Canaan and the disposal of his bones. "I die", said he: "and GOD will surely visit you, and bring you out of Egypt unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob"; and he took an oath of them, saying, "Ye shall carry up my bones from hence".

Why, I ask, is all mankind’s anxiety now about their "souls", and a

heaven beyond the skies, when the friends of GOD, who had all their pilgrimage been the honoured subjects of His fatherly care, manifested no such carefulness; but on the contrary exacted oaths of their survivors expressive of their love for Canaan, and of their concern that their bodies should moulder there? The reason is that the moderns have no faith in the promises of GOD. Neither Protestants nor Papists "believe on GOD". They have a system of faith which bears no affinity to the religion of GOD; and hence they hope for things which He has not promised; and consequently the most pious of them die with a lie in the right hand. The faith and hope of Protestantism are not the faith and hope of "the fathers", whom GOD has constituted the "heirs of the world".

The last thoughts of these holy men were on "the exceeding great and precious promises" which are to be manifested in the land of Canaan; where their posterity will yet become "a great and mighty nation" under Shiloh and his saints as the Lords of Israel and the Gentiles. Seeing this, then, though afar off, they gave expression to their faith by giving commandment concerning their bodies; as it is written, "By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel: and gave commandment concerning his bones" He was, therefore, embalmed, and put into a coffin; and at the end of one hundred and fifty-four years his bones were carried out of Egypt by Moses; they accompanied Israel in all their journeyings through the wilderness; and were finally deposited by Joshua in the cave of Machpelah, where his fathers slept. When professors believe the truth, they will have as much interest in Canaan, and the disposition of their bodies, expressive of their faith, as we find testified of Israel and Joseph by those who are high in the favour of their GOD. We must believe the promises concerning Canaan, if we would be immortal of body in the kingdom of God.

BEELZEBUB and SECOND LEVEL THINKING

BEELZEBUB PARABLE ANSWER

BE VALIENT FOR THE TRUTH !

Be VALIENT for the TRUTH !

Preach without COMPROMISE !

AND ALL LOVERS of the TRUTH will approve.

ALL OTHERS you need not care a RUSH ! !! !

Dr. John Thomas, 1834

 

 

"And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not VALIENT FOR THE TRUTH upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith ~YAHWEH~. "

JEREMIAH 9:3

 

The following examples are being used to illustrate that the Bible is TRUE and the Word of GOD is POWERFUL and only those who are illegitimate in their thinking will decry its LOGIC. Here then is the Parable of BEELZEBUB, and SECOND LEVEL THINKING.

 

MARK 3:22

And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.

23 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?

24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

This First example Jesus Christ in this parable is telling the PHARASEES that in order for BEELZEBUB to have power over another he must first BIND HIM [the STRONG MAN] and then he can [take control] ie. SPOIL HIS HOUSE.

Here the focus seems to be upon BEELZEBUB, and his devils and demons which are apparently believed to be causing all the woe’s of man.

Jesus Christ however is turning the question around and according to the PHARASEES’ LOGIC HE Jesus Christ MUST HAVE BOUND Beelzebub, because he is SPOILING HIS HOUSE by casting out DEVILS or DEMONS.

THE QUESTION then is how can JESUS CHRIST bind the STRONG MAN —- BEELZEBUB

 

Lets take a closer look at this parable from the viewpoint of Matthew 12.

MATTHEW 12:22

22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.

23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?

24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?

[What or where is the Kingdom of SATAN is it the burning fires of HELL, Dante’s Inferno, or the tools of opression created by wicked men on the minds of the ignorant only**, certainly nothing which Identifies or lends itself to the GOD of Heaven or any SCRIPTURAL reference thereby. REVELATION lake of fire? Nonsense and future reality and allegorical and real destruction meated out to the disobedient in the Kingdom age the final and SEVENTH melennium]

27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.

[Jesus Christ healed many of their children, *** and by such obvious truth they accepted by faith not being blinded by traditions of men so called.]

28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.

First I should like to point out that in VERSE 26 Jesus Christ uses the word SATAN in place of BEELZEBUB and therefore ties the two characters together as one IDEA or problem.

It would be fair enough then to say that Jesus Christ was pointing out the ineffectiveness of the pharisees reasons. Both SATAN and BEELZEBUB then if divided will not stand and therefore Jesus is not using that power to heal.

This is what I would term 1st level thinking.

IF I by the power of BEELZEBUB/SATAN do these things what power is left. [GOD is the only POWER LEFT.]

Further Jesus Christ states, "Therefore they shall be your judges!" [GOD is the only Power here.]

 

SERPENT:

"A BEAST" Not immortal ! NOT SATAN ONLY FABLE- wives tale NOT LOGIC.

GENESIS 3:15

PROOF of GOD HIS LOGIC and WISDOM and MERCY. A Seed – Messiah of Future and is Jesus Christ Savior of the WORLD.

DANIEL 2:44 Stone Cut out without hands is Jesus Christ

SECOND LEVEL THINKING

The Kingdom of GOD is come unto you!

" IF GOD BE DEVIDED AGAINST HIMSELF GOD CANNOT STAND – – – – – "

GOD is NEVER divided.

THEREFORE: GOD is a JEALOUS GOD – GOD is ONE! 

GOD is the ONLY POWER of the UNIVERSE and all other Satan-Devils-Lucifer-Demons are the inventions and imagination of MEN ie. AND BECAUSE of and EVIL/SEARED CONSCIENCE [LUST of the EYES, LUST of the FLESH, and PRIDE of LIFE.] ignoring these FACTS and making the TRUTH of no effect by these devices, inventions and fables.

CONSIDER AGAIN: IF GOD DIVIDE against Himself would He not be like a house fallen?

CONSIDER AGAIN: If GOD is the CREATOR of ALL things, would he create beings to work against HIM?

CONSIDER AGAIN: SATAN: WOULD GOD create such a world which paints such depth of wickedness and evil surely these are the outworkings of desperate and wicked conscience and minds which are afraid of the discipline of righteousness and self control.

PROVERBS 25:28

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

JEREMIAH 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

CONSIDER AGAIN: It is MAN and an EVIL CONSCIENCE which is born of SIN laden upon a mind which carries them like a plague ready to spring upon the guilty like a broken pot that holds no water and brings destruction to all in his path.

Here King David declare’s his faults against his people and against GOD.

PSALM 51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

ORIGINS IN EDEN:

LET US BEGIN at Eden, where ADAM and EVE were condemned. What Three things were involved in the deception which the SERPENT,[not SATAN Advisary or DEVIL/Diabolos ‘false accuser an ADVISARY] spoke about?

THREE THINGS, [Ge 3:6 ¶ And when the woman saw that the tree was

good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Disobedience was the call of GOD, when HE sent them out of EDEN.

The promise of a redeemer, who was the seed of the Promise, of Genesis 3:15,was fulfilled when the Seed of the Woman Crushed the Seed of the Serpent. Our Lord Jesus Christ who suffered such humility in His death was THAT REDEEMER.

So we remind you all that The parable of BEELZEBUB was only a brief view of our Lord Jesus Christ in His magnificent Logic and TRUTH who has given us the advantage of seeing clearly Our true ADVISARY ie [Lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and Pride of Life-] the SERPENT/devil his seed: advocates who are wicked and foolish people guilty of the crime of deceit and persecution by that deceit, liars whose lives are forfeit for their deeds not eternal torments but immediate and final death.

For those who understand the Logic of our GOD ~YAHWEH~ Elohim Yisraail, we have a vision and THE PROMISE:

ROMANS 8:17 ¶ And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

GALATIANS 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

TITUS 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

HEBREWS 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

HEBREWS 6:17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: {confirmed…: Gr. interposed himself by}

HEBREWS 11:9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

JAMES 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?

 

THIS PROMISE in the GOSPEL MESSAGE that the Kingdom of GOD, ~YAHWEH~ Elohim of Israel will soon be established in His SON, Jesus Christ, and He will rule over all the Earth* in righteousness and in truth forever.

 

*Numbers 14:21

      "before you jump to conclusions", and KNOW your Bible! 

*** MARK 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of GOD as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
 LUKE 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of GOD as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

MATTHEW 18:

 1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
 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.
 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

May the MOST HIGH GOD and Creator of all things BLESS you and strengthen you in your determination to achieve righteousness and TRUTH for this is the pathway to peace! [Romans15:4, and Romans 5:1&2]
