Working God's Word-Puzzle
Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
Deuteronomy 32:18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
Jeremiah 3:4 Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Among Christians there are many "Son" worshippers. It is always, "Thank you, Jesus"! All they want to do and hear is praise and honor of the Son. You can go ahead and honor Jesus. He is a wonderful Son. But he is your brother. While you are worshipping Jesus, you seem to have forgotten to worship the Greatest One of all! If this were not so, God would not have had our HEADLINES written! Jesus himself worships the Father, and he said, "Father is seeking those who can worship Him in Spirit and in truth".
John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
John 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
The problem here is men do not know the Father. You cannot worship whom you do not know. God has kept Himself hidden from us for His own reasons.
Isaiah 45:15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.
Matthew 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
NOW in this time of the END God is manifesting Himself and turning the hearts of His children from reverencing flawed preachers to reverencing Him! You see, the Lord is not the Shepherd of most Christians. Their human pastor is their shepherd.
Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you "Eli-Jah" the prophet (this is "my God"- "the Lord" meaning Father Himself is coming!) before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Isaiah 40:10 Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. 11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
Isaiah 52:6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I. 7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
Every text we present where Father is speaking in the first person is ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY and cannot change. HIS direct WORD tops any other text you can find written by Bible writers who "prophesied in part, knew in part, and understood in part", 1 Corinthians 13:8-13. I present to you the WORD of the Supreme Judge. All understanding MUST stop and fall prostrate at His feet. In the US we say, "The buck stops here"! YOU cannot "counter" God's Word spoken and written in the first person with any scripture that seems to contradict Him! YOU need to RESPECT WHOM I am showing you! This is the Creator, your Father, God Almighty Himself! Understand Father's voice when you see His Words in written form.
To all you brother worshippers, you are on notice! Your Father is looking for "true worshippers" who can reverence and honor Him! You recognize His Son, and that is good, but you seem to forget about Him. Does it seem fair to do your Father that way, when He created you and gave you life? Those who honor our Father, He will honor. You need to take the next step in spiritual growth! It is time for you to learn HOW to keep the 5th Commandment, which is to "Honor thy Father and thy Mother (Mother Wisdom)". In your churches and your doctrines, you slight both of them! We do not do that in the GOOD NEWS. Learn to glorify God, because you want and expect Him to glorify you. "You cannot worship God in this mountain, nor yet in Jerusalem", John 4:20-24. He does not dwell in a building made by the hands of men. Solomon said, "The Heavens cannot contain thee", 1 Kings 8:27. YOU have a lot to learn about WHO and WHAT your Father is. But you cannot choose Him and find Him. He must choose (elect) you . to be His student. You may be a "wantta be", but just because you want to worship the Father in spirit and in truth does not "qualify you". You must be worthy according to Father's estimation and criteria. He weighs the thoughts and intents of the heart and rewards men according to their works as He views them. Man-pleasers, who respect men they can see, are dubious prospects! You may think you are holy and full of truth and understanding. But how God views you may shock you!
KJV Psalm 14:2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. 7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.
Zechariah 3:1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. 2 And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire? 3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. 4 And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.
The point in all this is to show you that your self-esteem and self-evaluation and opinion of your own righteousness, obedience, and worthiness may be vastly different from the way God sees you. To you and to men around you, you may be a bastion of honor and holiness. Honor and accolades from men mean "nothing"! Only the honor that comes from God has any real "value"!
John 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?
Below are a series of responses to emails from certain readers. There is a lot of light to be gleaned from them. Check them out!
I trust you are well. This is why we prefer to follow the lead of the Father and Jesus Christ rather than to follow man's popular contemporary theology of condemnation of men:
John 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
John 8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
KJV John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
KJV Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, [there is] no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Romans 8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? [It is] God that justifieth. 34 Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Romans 14:4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
Here is the answer to those questions posed through the Spirit:
Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
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.
2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Here is an example of the judgment of Jesus VS the clergy of his day:
KJV John 8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. 2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with [his] finger wrote on the ground, [as though he heard them not]. 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard [it], being convicted by [their own] conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, [even] unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. 12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
The devil has made an art out of "condemnation of men". Yet those "caught in the very act of sin" cannot be condemned, because Jesus STANDS to defend all men before the Father as our High Priest. He is "the same yesterday, today and forever", Hebrews 13:8. He continues to be "the LAMB of God who takes away the sins of the world" (John 1:29), while "the Accuser" and his ministers, who have taken over almost ALL Christian churches (Revelation 13:4-7), continue trying to damn them and put them in hellfire with devils. He continues to do his "propitiation" job before the Father, our Supreme Judge. He treats all charges against men coming from devils and their crony preachers in the churches in the same way he treated the charges against the woman caught in the act of adultery! Between Jesus and these "condemners" in pulpits, who is promoting the WILL of the Father? Whose voice do you suppose Father will regard and respect in the Heavenly Court? Is it the voice of Jesus or the voices of Lucifer and his "condemning" preachers in pulpits? Go back to the top and READ and absorb those texts and YOU be the judge!
Just in case you "hedge" on the answer or become hesitant, here is the CORRECT answer:
1 John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
2 Corinthians 5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
NOW if you want to serve God and help Him educate the children, you MUST follow the lead of God and Christ! When you do, you can expect men including the churches to treat you like they did Jesus! YOU WILL be "despised and rejected of men". That treatment does not phase me any more because I have become accustomed to it! "Woe to you when men speak well of you... so did they to the false prophets"!
All this is "just Bible", the way you have championed. I prefer "just TRUTH"!
What do you think of this:
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
Philippians 3:18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
Romans 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
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. 7 But if the ministration of death, written [and] engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which [glory] was to be done away: 8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? 9 For if the ministration of condemnation [be] glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. 10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
KJV Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
The Word speaks on its own without the need for human "spin" and opinion. What is this Word saying to you? Since I trust and believe these Words, why do you despise me? All this is what the GOOD NEWS is about. Forget your thinking and cut off your head. Let these Words of God become your new Head, Psalm 50:16-21; Isaiah 55:7-10.
Here is what Jesus said to demonic detractors speaking through his challengers:
John 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
God measures the thoughts and intents of the heart. Beware of the spirit that is in you, and do not use the Word deceitfully because "condemnation of men" is in you!
(I was countered with Revelation 20:12-15 in an attempt to prove that men would be damned with devils).
"Whosoever" is a relative pronoun referring to demons. Get it OUT of your mind that this applies to humanity! Every human being is foreknown in the Father's mind. He does not need a book with paper pages, nor electronic Internet pages to "remember". He has a photographic mind and His Head is His book and He is Life. Next time you think about the term "book of life" understand it in your mind correctly. See your Father, however you picture Him in your mind. Now that we are straight on to whom the Book of Life refers, let us discover whose names are in it and whose names are not in it. For an in-depth reference on this subject go to http://www.goodnewsinc.net/v3gn/bookolif.html. God foreknew every human being created. No earthly names of any human being are recorded in the Father's book of life (His head). But the names He gave each of us are recorded there.
2 Esdras 2:15 'Mother, cherish your sons. Rear them joyfully as a dove rears her nestlings; teach them to walk without stumbling. You are my chosen one, 16 says the Lord. I will raise up the dead from their resting-places, and bring them out of their tombs, for I have acknowledged that they bear my name. 30 'My power shall protect you, and save your sons from hell. Be joyful, 31 mother, you and your sons, for I will come to your rescue. Remember your children who sleep in the grave; I will bring them up from the depths of the earth, and show mercy to them; for I am merciful, says the Lord 32 Almighty. (Hosea 13:14). To all hellfire and brimstone preachers who like to condemn men, YOU cannot damn one man by preaching lies. The Judge has spoken! Check out that purple line!
Ode 8:15 For I do not turn away my face from them that are mine; 16 For I know them and before they came into being I took knowledge of them, and on their faces I set my seal: 17 I fashioned their members: my own breasts I prepared for them, that they might drink my holy milk and live thereby 18 I took pleasure in them and am not ashamed of them: 19 For my workmanship are they and the strength of my thoughts: 20 Who then shall rise up against my handiwork, or who is there that is not subject to them? 21 I willed and fashioned mind and heart: and they are mine, and by my own right hand I set my elect ones: 22 And my righteousness goeth before them and they shall not be deprived of my name, for it is with them.
YOU will learn your true name when Father calls you from this earth, Psalm 147:4; Isaiah 48:13. What David wrote in Psalm 139 applies to every human being. All of us were nursery mates before Adam was sent down.
KJV Psalm 139:1 O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted [with] all my ways. 4 For [there is] not a word in my tongue, [but], lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6 [Such] knowledge [is] too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot [attain] unto it. 7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou [art] there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou [art there]. 9 [If] I take the wings of the morning, [and] dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. 12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light [are] both alike [to thee]. 13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. 14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvellous [are] thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well.15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book (mind) all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. 17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18 [If] I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
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. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel.
Isaiah 25:6-8 And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. 7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations. 8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken [it].
Using Just Bible only, the message is clear. The Father foreknew (and gave us Heavenly names which He reveals only when we rise) and predestined all human beings for eternal life, and Jesus "draws all men to Heaven" specifically at the point of death where redemption occurs, Hosea 13:14.
As you can see, you must "rightly divide the Word" without making any part contradict. It ALL must agree smoothly without loose ends. "Whosoever" in the text you cited refers only to the kingdom of devils born down here, not to the spirits of men who were born in Heaven. See http://www.goodnewsinc.net/heaven.
God left as a legacy MORE than just 66 books of writings for mankind. What you were taught in the churches "limits" your access to the truths you need to complete the story. This is as if the Word is a 1000-piece puzzle and half the pieces are missing. You have put the 500-pieces generally approved by men together in the way that seems right to you. However the Word is still sealed from men, Isaiah 29:9-14; Revelation 5:1-5. But it is impossible for you to see the whole picture or the correct picture. You are left guessing at what you see. Below are other texts from other Holy Writings ("shewbread" to you) which you need in order to gain perfect understanding. They ALL agree with ALL the scripture links from just the Bible.
Note the sudden transition from the person of the Psalmist to the person of the Lord (v. 10). This is like the canonical Psalter in style.
1 Open ye, open ye your hearts to the exultation of the Lord: 2 And let your love be multiplied from the heart and even to the lips, 3 To bring forth fruit to the Lord, living [fruit], holy [fruit], and to talk with watchfulness in His light. 4 Rise up, and stand erect, ye who sometime were brought low: 5 Tell forth ye who were in silence, that your mouth hath been opened. 6 Ye, therefore, that were despised be henceforth lifted up, because your righteousness hath been exalted. 7 For the right hand of the Lord is with you: and He is your helper: 8. And peace was prepared for you, before ever your war was. 9. Hear the word of truth, and receive the knowledge of the Most High. 10 Your flesh has not known what I am saying to you: neither have your hearts known what I am showing to you. 11 Keep. my secret, ye who are kept by it. l2 Keep my faith, ye who are kept by it. l3 And understand my knowledge, ye who know me in truth, 14 Love me with affection, ye who love! 15 For I do not turn away my face from them that are mine; 16 For I know them and before they came into being I took knowledge of them, and on their faces I set my seal: 17 I fashioned their members: my own breasts I prepared for them, that they might drink my holy milk and live thereby 18 I took pleasure in them and am not ashamed of them: 19 For my workmanship are they and the strength of my thoughts: 20 Who then shall rise up against my handiwork, or who is there that is not subject to them? 21 I willed and fashioned mind and heart: and they are mine, and by my own right hand I set my elect ones: 22 And my righteousness goeth before them and they shall not be deprived of my name, for it is with them. 23 Ask, and abound and abide in the love of the Lord, 24 And yet beloved ones in the Beloved: those who are kept, in Him that liveth: 25 And they that are saved in Him that was saved; 26 And ye shall be found incorrupt in all ages to the name of your Father. Hallelujah.
Enoch 68:4 'And it came to pass when he stood before the Lord of Spirits, Michael said thus to Raphael: 'I will not take their part under the eye of the Lord; for the Lord of Spirits has been angry with them because they do 5 as if they were the Lord. Therefore all that is hidden shall come upon them for ever and ever; for neither angel nor man shall have his portion (in it), but alone they have received their judgement for ever and ever.'
Secrets of Enoch 23:3 And Pravuil told me: 'All the things 4 that I have told thee, we have written. Sit and write all the souls of mankind, however many of them are born, and the places prepared for them 5 to eternity; for all souls are prepared to eternity, before the formation of the world.' And all 6 double thirty days and thirty nights, and I wrote out all things exactly, and wrote three hundred and sixty-six books.
Since the "just spirits of men" are citizens of Heaven right now, recall what Jesus told the Pharisees, "The publicans and the harlots enter the kingdom before you". What explanation do you have for Revelation 5:13, and Isaiah 66:22-23 from your perspective? It is easy to see the reality of these things from God's LOVE-perspective. To think meanly and to equate "punishment! punishment! PUNISHMENT!" with justice as you do, is to miss the beauty and power of mercy and forgiveness, Isaiah 54:5-13, 57:16-19. Simon was a "condemner and an advocate of punishment" like you. This is the lesson you should learn from Luke 7:41-43. God is culturing LOVE in US. Jesus asked, "Who will love Him most"? Simon got it right. He said, "Those He forgave the most". So you see letting sin abound only to forgive ALL men for all of it has a Higher purpose. Your Father KNOWS how to make us love Him. If you apply Matthew 5:44-48 as clay over your eyes, it will become rose-colored glasses by which you will finally see in "right" focus, and you will be "in the pink".
What I have said in all my writings does not encourage sin. READ Matthew 12:43-45. Tell me who wants or needs demons controlling him like a puppet on a string? "Anyone committing sin is the servant of sin" and "sin is a demon", Genesis 4:5-7, NAB or NEB. You say you want to fight sin? Go for it! But if you threaten men with hellfire, you bare false witness against the Father and Jesus Christ. That is a violation of the 9th Commandment. If you say unbelieving devils born down here are in danger of hellfire, you will be correct. Better yet, try comforting God's captive children His way exactly as written in Isaiah 40:1-2. If you do this you will get God's approval!
At any of our web-sites is a section under Archives or References called Other Bible Books. There, we list the main books we use in our documents. There are other books we use that are not on-site. Among these are the Book of Jubilees and Acts of John. This is not to say that God did not use "other writers". For our work, these are the ones I use for scriptural references. In determining spiritual authenticity, you must realize that God always prepares a table before his writers in the presence of the enemy. The enemies also have access to our minds as a competing voice. This is how God allows the "badger-skin covering" (unclean) to insert itself around the "holy things". Think of any written work as a field. In that field are rocks, trees, weeds, briars, dirt or sand, iron ore, grass, fruit trees, and non-fruit-bearing trees. Also beneath the soil are hidden diamonds, emeralds, silver, and gold. There are also land mines and snares in this field set by the enemy. The precious things are the least plentiful and hardest to discover in this field, because they are usually buried or hidden. Desirable surface items like fruit, grass and whatever covers the soil may be easily seen and gathered by almost any reader. All works that God's writers and others have written are like this field. We are searching "students", and we know somewhere in this field are ALL the Words God delivered, and all the "hidden" precious mysteries and secrets of God. If you truly hunger and thirst for God, He will know it. He will deliver you to a "crown" of angelic teachers. They (male and female spirit FAMILY-members) will share with you what God has given them. You know you will also hear misleading voices of devils also quoting scriptures in your mind (just as Jesus heard the devil on the mount of temptation). These are the same spirits who convinced you that the errors you now reject were the truth just a while ago. The "badger skin veil" does not leave the temple (our bodies). It remains covering the "tent" (you), Matthew 12:43-45. We were taught by earlier teachers to "try the spirit by the spirit". Since Jesus is all "WORDS of the BOOK" <"Lo I come; in the volume of a book it is written of me"> the words are spirit. Collectively all God's writings throughout time are Jesus' Word-body. The words given by any angelic "spirit" must be compared to what is already written. "To the law and the testimony (words) if they speak not according to this word there is no light in them", Isaiah 8:20. The "Word is exalted above all His name". Jesus and his words and work as well as what is written of him in the prophets and by Moses are all the measuring tools I use to determine truth. No spirit of Heaven will deviate from Jesus. His red-words in red-letter edition Bibles are extremely vital. All words that agree with Jesus' testimony, work, and what he symbolizes are "true". Those that deviate and make some parts of Jesus' statements contradict, that challenge any of his works and their implications are from devils, or they are man's own misunderstanding.
Sometimes words evoke the wrong picture-meaning in human minds. This is where the Father is instrumental in putting in our minds the correct picture-meaning to words spoken or written. He selects his own students. No man can make himself "chosen" for God's instruction. Father runs our family completely and He is doing all of this "His way". Since no one can gain anything unless He wants Him to have it, God leads all those who learn more by giving them talents according to their mastery of previous lessons which "He knows He gave them". It is like math. If you cannot master general math, you cannot take algebra. Trigonometry is out of the question, and calculus is as far away as the moon. Those taking money and making merchandise out of the things of God and Christ are disqualified and WILL NOT be given spiritual treasures of our heritage, Luke 16:10-15.
In summary, I compare any man's words or any "spirit's" words with what I know is written using the WORD-JESUS as a balance or yardstick. When we begin to see the whole picture more clearly, it is easier to smell deception when it attempts to creep in. My teachers always quote scripture texts to me or give me part of texts. But you need a wide range of written documents and also knowledge of what is written in the record to get a feel for what God is doing. I do not ascribe to limitations of the authentic books set by already blind idol-worshipping Catholics. They want us to believe they were being led by the Spirit in their conclusions. Neither do I ascribe to the limitations of money-grubbing Protestant Judas-priests, who limited more books than the Catholics did. In the KJV it is written, "They limited the Holy one of Israel" (in Word-form). This is how men today were left with only 66 books of the collective "Bible". This was really a work by the demons leading them.
Parables, similes, metaphors, and allegory are big parts of God's security program for preserving truth. He knew devils would use redactors and translators to change many things according to their theological bias. You are aware of that. By telling the same truth in a variety of parabolic ways, in plain words, and by making men act prophecy in their daily life, the messages He wanted delivered to us came as a written legacy throughout time. Always no man can know and understand anything unless God wants him to have it. God says, "Whatsoever is right, I will give", because the Word is sealed to men. He rewards us with penny-thoughts according to our mastery of previous lessons. He also made it a requirement for us to trade with one another as another way to gain knowledge. This means a respect for one's brother (who may not be a part of your group) to whom God has given "talents". Bias will prevent a man from gaining and learning, if he has not mastered the tenets of brotherly love. If you cannot receive me, you show God you have a short-coming. If you receive me, you will also receive Him. He is in me and I am in Him. If you show the Father you have mastered these "family basics", you will show Him you are ready for Higher things. Father cares for all, and He will teach those who desire to please Him. Man-pleasers are not God-pleasers, because man is under the influence of demonic spirits. They will oppose parts of God's program. Some of your friends will be unhappy with you if you begin to please God more. My love and concern for God is greater than my desire to please or impress my fellowman on earth. I am not a "groupie", nor am I clique-ish. Jesus said, "Woe unto you when men speak well of you. They spoke well of the false prophets". I am not ashamed of the truth I carry and I will not take a back-seat to any position or theology. I know God's Word and I honor it above all else.
Back to your original query, I use Jesus as my foundation, key, and measuring stick to compare and measure everything else. At our sites http://www.goodnewsinc.net/word and http://www.goodnewsinc.net/omega you will find more detail on how God has taught me to understand the written word.
Here is something the Spirit pointed out to me. Everyone gets weighed in God's balance. The GOOD NEWS is not exempt. Spirit always answers Spirit. Just as my Words get weighed, "WE" weigh the words of all men in Gabriel's balance, Daniel 5:27, 9:21-22; Revelation 6:5. I want you to first see how the true Spirit deals with God's writers. Here is the first example: Ecclesiastes 3:17-20. This conclusion of Solomon is "incorrect"! As you know God feeds his writers in the presence of their own demons who dwell on the writer's body. These devils have access to the writer's mind and attempt to muddy up the message the Spirit is teaching, Ezekiel 34:17-22. Their job is to insert "badger-skin" thoughts and wrong mental pictures to words. This is how the "badger-skin" veil gets inserted to cover the "holy things"! Notice how "fast" the Spirit begins to correct this error. He "corrects" with Ecclesiastes 3:21, 4:2, 12:7. You must "weigh" words "on the fly" in real time. You cannot do this yourself, but your angelic crown must lead you into all truth. Personally I am not "skilled", but my crown-angels are very skilled. We pointed this out in one of our letters concerning "how" God distributes the Word to special writers. Since I am used to weigh everyone else, my Words are also weighed.
Now it is the GOOD NEWS' turn to weigh itself. Consider this from the our web-site, Buy and Bye:
Babylon and the Dragon in the Churches
As you know Babylon's thing is buying and selling, merchandising and profit-making all over the world. In Revelation 18, she is said to have made the whole world drunk off the wine of her fornication. ALL OF THE WORLD is drunk from the wine of profiteering. We saw in the prophecies of Daniel and John that the Dragon presides OVER the saints and the churches because he has "overcome them". Preachers, churches, and Christians do not like to face these truths, nor do they like to think about them. They prefer to believe wrongly that these things are "NOT SO"! This is because of their vain ego and "self-righteous" desire. But you cannot make Daniel, John, and Jesus into liars and false witnesses just so you can remain deceived into thinking "you are spotless" and wrinkle free.
It is this last line I am interested in. Juno has a rudimentary email program that does not do sophisticated things. I tried to "highlight" this line in red Italics and the mail program can't handle it. This reminds me of the churches. They "can't" handle the real truth! ANYWAY .... compare that line with our new document, "You Stand Spotless", http://www.goodnewsinc.net/YouStandSpotless.htm. What do you think? Do we have a dichotomy in words or is there another variable? How can one NOT "stand spotless" and yet "stand spotless" simultaneously? Here is the key. The churches presume to be spotless in their own eyes assuming their lying and accusing doctrines please God. This mind-set is wrong. Those who are in the flesh and accuse their brethren do not please the Father, Romans 8:6-8. These have the Laodicean trait described in Revelation 3:14-19. The key is "whose visual perspective are we referring to". The self-righteous view-point of flawed preachers and Christians is one perspective, and the absolute and perfect perspective of the justifying Supreme Judge, Jesus, and the Heavenly Court is another. There are "differences" in point of view. About a week ago the Spirit asked me to show YOU these things. Now you see them.
All of those being taught by the Father are at different spiritual grade-levels. Some have one talent, some two, some five, some ten talents, and so it goes. God is the one who upgrades a man's thinking, when He is sure the student has mastered his previous lessons that GOD GAVE him. We can talk and write until we turn blue in the face and go nowhere in a hurry, because .... "Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build it". As student assistants, we "cast our bread upon the water". It may be that we will find it again after many days. Raising the FAMILY is Father's responsibility! Nothing can supercede the pace He has set for each individual no matter how fast you and I might want men to grow. You are aware of husbandry. Different seeds from a variety of plants grow at different rates, and have different nutritional requirements, and watering needs. The fruits are different and the maturation times are also different. I understand this. I do not attempt to tax readers beyond their capabilities. My job is merely to put the Word I hear "out there". Father is the sunshine and the rain. Among all I reach, He will select those He wants to feed, not those I might necessarily want .... because I want them ALL to receive and believe. I am aware that Father does not work that way. He chooses according to a man's works and worthiness and according to what He has instilled in the prospective student's heart. We do well to understand that "we" are not the Teacher. As Jesus said it, "I am just an unprofitable servant just doing what is my duty to do", Luke 17:10. We all evaluate one another by our words whether we intend to or not. It is good to recognize the measure of those we call a "friend". As you can see, I understand my "place" in God's scheme of things and I accept it. I have every intention of doing exactly as He has commanded me personally!
Word Works, Eli Jah-style!
Check this out:
KJV John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? [even] because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell [you] the truth, ye believe me not. 46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear [them] not, because ye are not of God.
Psalm 50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or [that] thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
Isaiah 30:8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: 9 That this [is] a rebellious people, lying children, children [that] will not hear the law of the Lord: 10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: 11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
Here are the Father's Words:
Isaiah 14:12,21-22, 24:5-6,16-22; Ezekiel 28:14-19, Enoch ch. 10-16, Matthew 23:33, 25:41; 2 Peter 2:4-6, 3:7,12-13; Jude 1:6-16, Revelation 18:2-8, 19:20-21, Psalm 37:10; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12.
How is your English comprehension, Tony? Can you hear (read) these Words of God, or do you cast them behind you? "He that is of God heareth God's Words". Those who cast God's Words behind them and REFUSE to hear them are either "of their Father the devil" or under demonic influence!
Never be AFRAID to defend your faith to those who ask it of you! I can and will "defend" the GOOD NEWS!
1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
I want to know why you think devils will be saved. TEACH ME! Consult with all the UR's who you feel are "authorities" for "help". I am hungry! Otherwise tell me how the scriptures listed above blend in harmony with that contention. To me the positions are diametrically opposed! And I made "A's" in English! My English comprehension is great! I await your answer, or the answer from your UR "authorities".
You seem bent on discussing this with Andrew, but not with me. I am a very nice guy! Why not give me an answer?! I will not "grind YOU to powder", but I will KILL the doctrine of "amnesty to devils"! I have not cast powder into the wind in a little while, and I am anxious to do it again! God does not bite, but He gave ME some awfully sharp teeth! I will use them!
Tony is a friend who came from a Catholic background and he is now persuaded to believe the salvation and reconciliation of all men. He likes dealing with many UR (Universal Reconciliation) people, their doctrines and sites. Some of them believe God will save the Kingdom of darkness and "reconcile" them also. Tony and Andrew, a mutual friend, got into a discussion about the "salvation of demons" (?) and Andrew is trying to open Tony's eyes to the falseness of that conclusion. Andrew mentioned this to me and I immediately queried Tony to prove his contention with sound scriptural support. Of course there is no scripture written that states such a thing. What these "UR's" who espouse this have done is to confuse certain scriptures sent to men. They have attempted to apply them to Lucifer and demons. I know Tony and his errant brethren who have bought this lie CANNOT defend it with the scriptures. They have presumed and assumed certain "interpretations", "opinions", and "surmise" of some specific scriptures, which do not say what they teach. They teach their "spin" for doctrine, and in doing so they make God's own direct Words in the first person spoken to the prophets "invalid" and God becomes a blatant liar. You CANNOT do that and claim faith in God. God speaking in the first person is always "right" and man's "spin" is a lie. Tony has bought this deceit and is holding on to it. Of course I want to rip the LIE to shreds, not Tony. He is offended at me because of my stance and position. Every man's doctrine, which is built on the Christ foundation, shall be tried by fire (the Word). If it can abide this test without being burnt, you can be sure it is real truth. But your thoughts and your conclusions CANNOT void and contradict so many other scriptures and Jesus himself. It is written that he would send men "a strong delusion to believe a lie". But if you are blindsided by a "weak delusion", you are not a spiritually strong man. Tony has a site that boasts of the writings of other men, many of whom are "universalists". Like I said, he is a friend with thin skin when the point of the sword is facing him. Truth is not about personalities and man-pleasing. We must serve God and revere His Word, and it is found "precept upon precept, line upon line, and here a little and there a little". Truth is not the errant conclusions of guessing men in our time. I challenged Tony to prove his point and he "lost it". Suddenly I am an undesirable person, no longer a friend. "Some save with fear by pulling them out of the fire and hating the garment spotted by the flesh", Jude 1:23. Some people cannot appreciate how this works when we snatch at their pet lies. He is a nice guy, but a bit confused on this matter. I do not let his temper tantrum affect me nor my care for him. But I do not back down from one Word I wrote to him.

Ladies and Gentlemen!
Have you ever wondered about the "measuring" business written in Ezekiel chaps. 40-42 and also in Revelation11:1-2? What was God "really" showing these two writers? What do YOU get from this? Think about this for a while. When I come home from work tonight I will show you what the Spirit just showed me. The delay will be just a few hours. This will be an illustration of why "God exalted His Word above all His name". This is why "To the law and the testimony, if they speak not according to this word there is no light in them". "Precept must be upon precept and line upon line" to learn "God's doctrine". We MUST "try the Spirit by the Spirit". "Man cannot live by bread alone but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God". "The Words I speak are spirit and they are life"! "Sanctify them through thy truth, Thy Word is truth"! You CANNOT supply an interpretation, opinion, or surmise, or "spin" to any scripture you do not understand.
KJV Psalm 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
KJV Psalm 119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep (and use) thy precepts.
Why do I write this? It is because without the ENTIRE Word record, YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND every thing. YOU NEED the other writings, not the limit of 66 books in the Protestant Bible nor the larger limit of "the Apocrypha" and the Bible books derived by the Catholics, Psalm 78:41. NEEDFUL KEYS called "shewbread" are contained in those works, Matthew 12:3-4. Some have cast a few aspersions on the Bible and the other works. To understand the Word of God contained within the written texts, you need a guide. Father has set before me an open DOOR and Jesus (the Door) has shown me many things. He is the Word and he teaches me by the Word and without a precept he does not speak. Precept is upon precept and line upon line. You cannot guess at the meaning of what God was doing by giving Ezekiel and John those visions. Because the Word is "sealed" I cannot discover what this is about. Father is pleased to show you why the GOOD NEWS concept is "right" because HE sets His Word in order by my hand, Psalm 50:16-21; John 1:1. YOU will learn that GOD AND JESUS do "work" here, Isaiah 28:17-22. When I return from work tonight. I will show you what those who can "open the BOOK and loosen the seals and READ IT" have shared with me. Just remember "No man works like Him" and that statement includes me. As you know, I have told you I am a recording secretary, not the Author of truth, but it is an honor to share with you what Heaven shares with me.

Below is the correct answer. You will notice how Word answers Word by precept upon precept with no human "spin" or interpretation using man's thoughts. Your key for this concept is men are God's "temple" and each of us are "lively stones" in the collective "outer court" building on this earth. However, the angels were measuring the "buildings" in Heavenly Jerusalem. These are your heavenly brothers and sister there now. Those "measuring" them were guaging their understanding and wisdom (talents) to be distributed to men below with ready ears to hear and quick minds to understand. Observe:
Book of Enoch 61 1 And I saw in those days how long cords were given to those angels, and they took to themselves wings and flew, and they went towards the north. 2 And I asked the angel, saying unto him: 'Why have those (angels) taken these cords and gone off?' And he said unto me: 'They have gone to measure.' 3 And the angel who went with me said unto me: 'These shall bring the measures of the righteous, And the ropes of the righteous to the righteous, That they may stay themselves on the name of the Lord of Spirits for ever and ever. 4 The elect shall begin to dwell with the elect, And those are the measures which shall be given to faith And which shall strengthen righteousness. 5 And these measures shall reveal all the secrets of the depths of the earth, And those who have been destroyed by the desert, And those who have been devoured by the beasts, And those who have been devoured by the fish of the sea, That they may return and stay themselves On the day of the Elect One; For none shall be destroyed before the Lord of Spirits, And none can be destroyed.
This Word came to me as I was reviewing our document, "Clay Works". If you do not respect the Book of Enoch, you will never grasp the beauty of what God was showing John and Ezekiel. The text fits with Ezekiel chaps. 40-42 and Revelation 11:1-2 perfectly like finding a long-lost puzzle-piece. Unless you learn to respect and "use" God's thoughts given to His other writers, you will never have PERFECT understanding in this life. You will not see the "WHOLE" picture. By honoring His Word given to the other writers, you honor Him. Those who cannot honor Father (even in Word form) will be lightly esteemed. Never let your fear of God be taught to you by the precepts of blind men in your former churches and Dark-Age theologians. The BOOK has always been sealed to men. They could not read it, nor understand it, nor break the seals on it. So the devil had theologians slander them and call them "apocryphal" and "pseudepigrapha". Maligning what you do not understand is a "No! No!", 2 Peter 2:12. And to swallow the poison and "book limits" of Dark-Age, willfully blind, idol-worshipping men in their arrogance (Catholics) is not to follow God!
KJV 1Samuel 2:27 And there came a man of God unto Eli, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Did I plainly appear unto the house of thy father, when they were in Egypt in Pharaoh's house? 28 And did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel [to be] my priest, to offer upon mine altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? and did I give unto the house of thy father all the offerings made by fire of the children of Israel? 29 Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded [in my] habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people? 30 Wherefore the Lord God of Israel saith, I said indeed [that] thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the Lord saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
1 Samuel 13:9 And Saul said, Bring hither a burnt offering to me, and peace offerings. And he offered the burnt offering. 10 And it came to pass, that as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him, that he might salute him. 11 And Samuel said, What hast thou done? And Saul said, Because I saw that the people were scattered from me, and [that] thou camest not within the days appointed, and [that] the Philistines gathered themselves together at Michmash; 12 Therefore said I, The Philistines will come down now upon me to Gilgal, and I have not made supplication unto the Lord: I forced myself therefore, and offered a burnt offering. 13 And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the Lord thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the Lord have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. 14 But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him [to be] captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee.
1 Samuel 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
So.... you want to make sacrifices of worship and offer doctrines before the Father, do you? Well, Eli, Saul and Samuel can teach you a poignant lesson about reverence, respect, and obedience. You may also consider Nadab, Abihu, Abiram, and Korah and what happened to them, Numbers 16.
You may find other Word references at our websites in our "References" section or "Archived" sections called "Other Bible Books". I suggest that you use only those that we have included. Also The Book of Jubilees, The Acts of John, and The Testament of the 12 Patriarchs are good references to study. Much "light" is in them. These are the references the Spirit has had me use. Other references you can find in the record may be of little use because devils did have men write spurious works. Other sources where you can find the writings included in the record are:
http://home.online.no/~noetic/oac.htm, and http://www.pseudepigrapha.com. If you are curious about references we do not use, review them WITH a Heavenly mind. Much snake oil is in many of them.
