Mystery that was given to Paul

Romans Chapter 11, and verse 25. This chapter is where Paul, by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, is making it so plain that God is not through with the Nation of Israel. The little nation has been set aside for the past 1900 + years, without their temple, priesthood, sacrifice, and without a homeland until our generation, but God is not through with His Covenant people. We saw that so vividly in the grafting process where Israel was removed, her branches were broken off, and the Gentiles grafted in. Gentiledom has now been placed over the root of the father Abraham, and so Gentiles have been under that blessing of having The Gospel, the opportunity for Salvation. But their day is fast coming to a close because they too have been walking it underfoot, and God’s grace and patience is one day soon, we think, going to run out, and then He will go back and pick up where He left off with Israel. Now here in verse 25 Paul writes to the believer

“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant…
Romans 11:25a

Ignorance is not a lack of brain cells, but rather a lack of having been taught. And I think that’s where the church, if I may use the term generally speaking, has failed so miserably because they have not taught their people. And it doesn’t matter what group it is. I maintain you ask the average Roman Catholic, “What do you believe?” you will find that most of them can’t tell you. You can ask the average Episcopalian, Baptist, Methodist, or any other group and most of them cannot tell you what they really believe. Why? Because nobody teaches them, and so this is what Paul is driving home, that the believers are to be a well-taught people. We should be well-read in the Scriptures, so this is his statement here.

Romans 11:25a

“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery,…”

The word “mystery” is one Paul uses so often, and in the Greek, the word is musterion, and it simply means, “secret.” The word can be translated either way, A mystery or a secret. So what Paul is saying then is, “That he doesn’t want the Gentile believers to be ignorant of a secret that God had kept in His own mind until He revealed it to the Apostle Paul.” if a believer would do a Bible study some evening, take a good concordance, or on the internet and just simply look up the word “mystery” as it appears in Paul’s epistles and you can just make a two or three hour Bible study and it will be so interesting.

Then put together all of the concepts that Paul associates with this revelation of a mystery. People need to know that all of these things that we refer to as coming from the epistles of Paul were never revealed previously in any of God’s dealing with mankind. So many of Paul’s doctrines you can’t find in the Old Testament. You can’t find them in Christ’s earthly ministry. You don’t find them in the early parts of Acts. They were revelations that God had kept secret since the beginning of human history or even before.

In that regard, of this in Deuteronomy 29:29. some may not know this is in the bible, Way back there in the beginning of the Bible. And it’s something you can sink your teeth in even today. The secret things belongs unto the LORD our God but those things which are revealed belongs unto us.

Why? Because He’s Sovereign. He’s the Creator of everything. He can do whatever He wants to do. He’s Sovereign. Too many people today have gotten the idea that God is just some big, what shall I say, easygoing grandfather type that they can just sort of manipulate and tweak His nose and get whatever you want. That’s not the God of the Bible. The God of the Bible is Sovereign. He is absolute. He is holy. He is righteous. And yet He is a God that is loving and kind and merciful and patient. But, in His sovereignty He has every right in the world to keep things secret as long as He wants to and He will reveal it when He’s good and ready and not until.

“The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed (are no longer secret) belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

This of course was written by Moses. But want to remember the God of the Old Testament is the same God of the New, even though we’re under a whole different set of responsibilities and everything. Yet God hasn’t changed. The things that God hated back in the Old Testament economy, God still hates them today. The very things that God forbade Israel back there in the Leviticus system, God still does not condone today. And so even though this was spoken by Moses to the Nation of Israel, yet it’s the same God and the same secret holder that we deal with today.

Now in the book of Romans we’ll look just at a few of these secrets that God has held all the way up through human history, and revealed only when He called the apostle Paul to be the apostle of the Gentiles. One of the first ones of course, if we’ll go through chronologically, so you won’t have such a hard time looking for it, is right here in Romans the last chapter – Chapter 16 and verse 25. And don’t just shrug these off as unimportant. They are basic to all of the Pauline doctrines. They are different concepts but they are all part of that revelation of the mystery. Now in Romans 16:25R

“Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery,…”

Do you see that? In other words, Paul says “The Gospel that I preach is going to be that Gospel which is part and parcel of these revelations of secret things that had never been revealed before.” That’s The Gospel according to the revelation of the mystery. Now let’s continue on and finish the verse.

Romans 16:25b
.which was kept secret (how long?) since the world began.”

And that’s exactly what Deuteronomy 29:29 is talking about, that God can see fit to keep things secret as long as He wants. But once He reveals it, then it becomes the human responsibility to believe it. Now then, your next one is I Corinthians Chapter 4. Now he puts a responsibility on believers of this age. And I know that he’s talking here in the first person, but whatever Paul applies to himself, he applies to all of his listeners. And now he says in verse 1:

I Corinthians 4:1
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the (what?) mysterys” of God.

Now what’s a steward? He’s a caretaker, he’s a manager, he’s an overseer. How in the world can you oversee or manage, something that you don’t know anything about? So if you’re going to be what the Bible expects you to be, you’d better be studying. You’d better be learning. What are you to be ready to administer? What should you be looking to be a manager of? The mysteries! Well how can you manage them or share them with somebody if you don’t know what they are. Let’s read on.

I Corinthians 4:2

“Moreover it is required in stewards, (or a manager) that a man be found faithful.”

What we have to do is that once we get a hold on these mysteries that we are faithful in passing them on to those who have probably never heard or those who know nothing of it. Now turning to Ephesians Chapter 3. I’m just touching a few of the plainer ones, the easier ones to understand. Let’s look at Ephesians Chapter 3 and verse 1. Paul again is establishing the fact that he is dealing primarily with Gentiles.

Ephesians 3:1

“For this cause (in other words, all the things that took place in these first two chapters) I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles.” Now let’s look at verse 3.

Ephesians 3:3
How that by revelation (in other words he revealed these things from the ascended Lord in Heaven) he made known unto me the mystery;…”

That revealed body of truth that no one ever before had any concept of. It was of course, back in the Old Testament, in latent form, much of these things that Paul is proclaiming to the Gentiles. Now that we understand this we can go back to the Old Testament and can see that God had it on His mind, but He had not revealed it as it was kept secret. Verse 4.
“Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ”

How you ever wonder after Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus, and God led him down to Mt. Sinai in Arabia for three years, why would it take so long?” Here is one of the reasons but one of which of course, you want to remember, is that Saul of Tarsus was steeped in Judaism. Saul of Tarsus was just as human as the rest of us and so it probably took a little while to cleanse his thinking and his behavior under Judaism. But on the other hand, to give the man such a clear-cut understanding of things that had never been revealed before, would naturally take some time. And he had to be so prepared that when he came back from that Arabian experience ready to go out among the Gentile world, going out among abject pagan idolaters, he had to be skilled in what he was proclaiming. And I think that’s part and parcel of that three-year training time down in Arabia. But he makes it so plain that all of this was revealed to him and he takes the responsibility of now passing it on to the whole world. Now then, come on and read verse 4 and following:

Ephesians 3:4,5

“Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge (his complete understanding) in the mystery of Christ.” (or the secrets) Which in other ages (in other past generations. In other words that takes you all the way back to the Old Testament) was not made known (see how plain the language is? These things that Paul is now revealing were never made known before. And he makes double sure we understand that.) unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed…”

Always go back to Deuteronomy and what does it say? And once it’s revealed they belong to us, which means we had better believe it. Now then verse 6. This is this part of the mystery that Paul is dealing with in Ephesians 3. There are all kinds of segments to the mysteries. This is the one he is talking about now.

Ephesians 3: 6

“That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ (not by Judaism, not by the Mosaic Law, but how?) by the gospel. (His finished work)

Have you ever read anything like this back in the Old Testament, that Gentiles would become one with Christ or with God? They didn’t understand Christ as much back there, but that Gentiles would become one with the God of Abraham? Well, whoever heard of such a thing. Jews would have thrown up their hands in horror if anybody would have approached such a subject. But they didn’t. They had no concept. Now God had the Gentiles on His mind – don’t ever lose sight of that. But it was under a whole different set of circumstances that what we’re seeing here.

Ephesians 3:7

“Whereof (of this message of revealing this mystery) I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.”

Ephesians 3:9

“And to make all men see (not just Israel or the Gentiles, but the whole human race) what is the fellowship of the mystery, (secret) which from the beginning of the world (age) hath been hid (where?) in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.”

The Sovereign God. It’s His prerogative to keep things secret if He wants to. And that’s where it was. It was hidden in God, the same God who created all things by Jesus Christ. Now let’s move on quickly to another little book of Paul’s and that’s Colossians, that we might get an understanding that one of the aspects of the mysteries is, yes, Israel is going to be spiritually blinded for almost 2000 years. Another revelation is that the Gentiles are going to come into a privileged position with Israel’s God in the form of the Body of Christ. Here is another aspect of the mystery, and here he speaks of the Body in which all Gentiles who are now believers are now part of.

Colossians 1:25,26

“Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, (do you see the order?) to fulfil the word of God; (and here it is in verse 26) Even the mystery (secret) which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:”

Do you see how plain that is? All these Pauline truths were held in the mind of God. Israel never had a concept of them, the Twelve had no concept of them, but here comes this renegade, this Saul of Tarsus that God saves by Grace, and to him God now reveals the secrets, the mysteries. And that’s why he now has been given the authority to pen these epistles that become the essential part of our Scripture. Paul is the one to whom God has revealed the mysteries. Now to Chapter 2, beginning at verse 2.

Colossians 2:2,3

“That their hearts (and Paul is speaking of the believers up there in Laodicea in Asia Minor) might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgment (or the acceptance) of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ. In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”

So we see that all treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in the mysteries of God. What is the revelation here that the Old Testament is vague about? The Trinity! Now we know that the Old Testament has evidences of the Triune God, but you see this is why the Hebrews, and the Rabbi’s even of our own present day, call Christians almost pagan because we worship three Gods. They don’t recognize the Trinity back there in the Old Testament, and they still don’t. But here is a revelation that God is a Triune God, and it’s a revelation that Paul brings out that God is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

I Corinthians 15, and again we have Paul talking about a mystery. Something totally different again. First he talks about the Gentiles becoming one with God. Then he talks about God, and the revelation about Who He really is as the Triune God, and now we come to a revelation of something totally different, but yet all part of that same complex revelation. Something that is never referred to anywhere else in Scripture, and that’s why people have such a hard time contemplating it even today and that is what we call, “The Rapture.” That’s a Pauline doctrine that you won’t find anywhere else in your Bible. But now look what Paul calls it.

I Corinthians 15:51a

“Behold, I shew you a mystery;…”

Something that has never before been revealed. Now what’s this mystery or secret? Oh, that there’s going to be one group of believers who are not going to die physically. They’re going to be alive when everything comes to a culmination, and you can’t find that anywhere else in Scripture, and so it’s part of the mystery. There is going to be a group of believers at the end of the Church Age that are going to be suddenly changed, and be from here to there in a split second. I was mulling it over again just the other day and it’s hard to comprehend. No wonder the unbeliever scoffs at it. I can understand why he would because it takes some faith to believe that all of a sudden Christ will leave Glory, will come to the atmosphere, the trumpet’s going to sound, the archangel is going to shout and all of a sudden, all the dead believers of the Church Age are going to be raised from wherever they are. They’re going to be resurrected, gone up to meet The Lord in the air and then a split second right behind them, here we come that are still alive and remain. This is hard to comprehend. I can’t envision millions of people suddenly congregating up there someplace in the atmosphere and then going back with Christ to Heaven. But what does The Book say? Exactly that. And so I believe it even though I can’t comprehend it. This is a mystery, a secret, revealed to the Apostle Paul and now it’s no longer a secret and we’re to believe it.

I Corinthians 15:51b

“We shall not all sleep, (die physically) but we shall all be changed.”

And then of course he goes on to say how it will happen. Let’s go to I Thessalonians Chapter 4. He doesn’t use the word “mystery” in this portion, but nevertheless, he’s talking about the same thing, so it too is part of the mystery. And that is what we call the outcalling or the Rapture of the Church. And again he uses the same word he uses in I Corinthians 15, “I would not have you to be ignorant.”

I Thessalonians 4:13

“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep (your loved ones who were believers and have died) that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope

I always call this the qualifications for the Rapture. This is all you need to be in that great company that one day soon is going to be called out of here.

I Thessalonians 4:14

“For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,…”

Do you believe it? The Gospel. (Ref: I Corinthians 15:1-4) I had a gentleman here and he will never know what his testimony meant to me. He’d always had trouble with the resurrection. He could believe all the rest of it, but he couldn’t believe the resurrection. A highly educated man, a brilliant man, he said, “All of a sudden one day, The Lord opened my eyes somehow or another and I believed it. And everything changed.”

I Thessalonians 4:16,17

“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 Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be (what) caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:….”

Those are the words that we have coined the word “Rapture” – caught up to meet The Lord in the air.

Evangelist J Burton.

Rationalizing what does this have to do with believers?

Rationalize is a word the people of God should be aware of. for example, Adam rationalize did it when he sin and found himself naked he decided to cover himself that if he covered himself God will understand…(rationalize)
So did Cain God told him to bring a blood sacrifice, instead, he brought something other than what God said, that was not pleasing to God.
Apostle Paul said these things were written for our learning we are to take note those words are not there just to fill the book, but for us to learn from them.
in the book of Proverbs said there is a way which seemeth right unto a
man, but the end thereof is the ways of death.
This is not a physical, but spiritual separation from God for all eternity.

Not believing in what God said it’s sacrilege He said to lean not unto your own understanding, His ways are far above your our ways.

He said without faith it is impossible to please Him. Faith is  taking God at his words…meaning you have to know what He said before you can obey Him. This is the reason for the Bible which is God’s written words , He said try the spirit with the spirit, if what you are doing or what you are hearing,and it is not in the bible it is not of God…every thing that a believer need to know in order to please God it is in the bible I called it your road map to heaven.
Therefore if you are doing your own thing don’t think that God will understand, He is absolute, you can’t manipulate Him, His words stand assure. When you don’t obey Him then you are calling Him a lair do you think God will like that if you don’t like to be called a lair how do you think God will feel. Psalms said the fool said in their hearts no God… one have to be a fool to call Him a lair.Revelation said all lairs shall have their part in the lake of fire.
God love all of His creations this is why Christ died for them so that all of His creation can be save… but it is a choice God has given every one the ability to choose for them self.  Therefor who ever finds them self in hell it is your choice… you choose to live in the lake of fire rather than to live in heaven with Christ Jesus.
Remember Eternity is long time is short.
Evangelist J Burton.

What Is The Purpose Of A Believer?

The purpose of a  believer is to do the will of the Lord, How can you know the will of the Lord is through His words which is the bible the words of truth. This is one of the reason I don’t understand why there are so many adapting to these new versions of the bible, where man has change the words to their liking’s , and called it Holy… it is holy to them because it is not of God because they are not of God.

The Holy Spirit will not honer that  which  does not belongs to Him, This is why I am  saying this, the Holy Spirit is God Him self living in you…stop and think about this, if God gave  His words He is the creator of words men does not know the meanings of words except God gave him the knowledge to do so. They have written  all of these different versions of this book, and for those who say they are of God fall for this. People wake up can you see this is the deceptions of the devil.

Don’t follow the crowed  God only has a few, if the world love it then it is not for you, because God has a mark on all of His people. don’t follow this saying God knows my heart and that I love Him, He said in His word if you love me you will serve me. They like to say that God knows my heart, people look at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart, only God can Judge. You are being judge by your appearance, The bible said the believers will judge…I would rather to be judge now while I can make correction than to wait when I will not have a chance to make any correction,

When you become a believer our soul purpose is to work for God…meaning we are responsible sourly  to bring people unto the Lord to complete His body, As He said He is the head the believer are his body when all of those who believe in His death burial, and resurrection they are planted into His body, by the Holy Spirit  positions no one knows, but when the body is completed He said we are His complement, as the woman is the complement of the man, Eve was Adam’s Complement, a man is not complete with out a woman. This is how much God loves us that he has made us one with Him self.

We are not save to heal people, we are not save to work miracles,we are not save to  tell people that God wants them to be rich and prosper. we are not living in miraculous time, Paul was sick God did not heal him so was others, Jesus work signs, and miracles to prove to the Jews  because they require a sign,,, He left that same power with His disciples to prove to the Jews that He was their Messiah.,,this was  for the Jews.

There are miracles happening to day but it is not from God because it is not scripture, God will not heal a sinner because he belongs to the devil…John said God does not hears sinners pray. when you come to him yes he hears you, this does not means now that you are a believer all of your sickness will go away all of your heard ship will go away not so.

God’s promises to you is eternal life join Aries with him, to rule the world with him. this is why we are working for  rewards  when I said work it is to let people know that Christ Jesus died so that they can live for ever with Him. some times people may feel that we are a odder to them, but when you become a believer you have this hunger for souls, you can’t help your self, because the Holy Spirit is in control He wants sinners to come into the knowledge of Him, and only through us He can do this.

 

WHO REALLY ARE THE NEW CREATION?

They are the ones who study God’s words with out questioning Him, because His words stands assure. You either believed it or not, every thing God wants us to know it is in the Bible, and if you don’t believed it  you are calling Him a lair… who did He said was a lair from the beginning, and who you obey he is your master. A true believer will obey God because of the changes that is in you.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. KJV It sames to me as if  most Christians don’t  

 know that this is in the Bible or they just do not care. Your pass is your pass it is behind you God put it in the see of forgetfulness never to remember it again…you are as a new born baby.”God has wipe your slate clean as if you had never sin. Paul said we are babes in Christ you are to desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow there by, which is our food. This only if you are a believer only believers are in the body of Christ Jesus, only believers will have no objection to God’s words. 
When one except Christ death burial and Resurrection 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 which is the Gospel of Grace…the Holy Spirit baptizes you in to the body of Christ Jesus you are filled with the Holy Spirit of promise, this is the down payment for your new body to keep you until the day of redemption. Now  you are sealed with Christ in God, you will only find this in the apostle Paul’s  writing Romans through Philemon (Hebrews) The Holy Spirit lives in a believer to lead and guide  you in to the path of righteous. What I am trying to say, the Holy Spirit will not let you do as you like because you are now God’s The Holy Spirit will not work against Him self He is God He set the guidelines for His people. The old you is gone which was control by the devil, this new nature will take control…The Holy Spirit.
I’m speaking from experience, the bible said let every man be a lair,and God’s
 word be true. We are to take God’s word at face value if the bible said it I believe it I don’t ask Him questions…who am I to question God. I ask Him daily to teach me His ways give me wisdom. and understanding of His word.
This time of the year it sames as if so many are in be twain, He said you can’t serve two masters. I wonder if most of these pastors are compromising because if they speak up people will leave their Church look at the big picture this is God’s business you are his servant…you are to follow His commands, one can not follow a command until it was given.  He has not given a command to celebrate His birthday, because if He did He would have given full instruction…He has never leave it up to man to do their thing when He want something done He would have given full Instruction on how to do so.
As apostle Paul said these things was written for our learning, meaning the old testament. God told Adam what not to do and what would happen if he did it.
God told Cain, and Able what to do bring a blood sacrifice,  He told   Noah exactly how to build the Ark  He gave all of  the measurement to Noah, and he followed  His instruction.
I wonder if any one even wonder why there are no  ones birth day is in the bible…believers should really consider this.It is not in the bible God did not say for us to do this, but the world is doing it then why am I doing it, and I am no longer off the world??
When Jesus became flesh and came down as earthly man. remember He is a spirit being, but in order for Him to do what he came to do He came as man,in the flesh experience every thing that man has experience in the flesh.Now did He, and His disciples celebrated birth days?  remember He lived in the flesh for thirty years. Birth days was a big thing  I believe with the Pharaohs, but for some reason God did not put it in the bible. He knows the out come of every thing because this is His program. Every thing that God said to do the devil said to do the opposite there are so many who ere   clamming  to be Christians I called them Sunday’s Christians. but are not living by God’s word.
When Jesus rose from the grave He rose with a brand new Spiritual, glorious body, remember he went into the grave with a fleshly body that He walked around this sinful world. the bible said He was so  motored while on that cross. Mather went to the grave to see about Him…taking Him for the Gardner until He called her name then she recognize His voice, a total new person. as I meditated on this, the bible said there are examples for us to follow as Christ was the first to raise from the grave, He was the first fruit, and the believers are to follow. Paul said when Christ was in the grave the believers was there with Him when He arose so did the believers…If  we have been planted to gather in the likeness of His death,we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection. when Christ was in the grave God saw the believers in there with him.
As a believer  being in the grave with Christ Jesus,  and risen with him this is how God sees us in a glorified body in Christ Jesus. This is the reason Christ Jesus said no one come to the father but by Him…because God sees His Son when the believers come before His throne, We have that same glorious body as Christ,  because we are planted with Christ in God.This sinful body can not go in God’s present…the believers are clothed in the garment of Holiness/ Righteousness. Jesus showed His glory to a few of His disciples, on the Mount of transfiguration. Therefor we have a glow of what God sees when a believer come to His throne.
 This is the reason the believers are no longer to partake in affairs of this world, if you find your self with no changes it is not God’s fault you better examine your self,and get right if you want to make heaven your home.If you re not in the body of Christ there is no way you can come into the present of God…this is bible.
We are save by faith in the finish work of the cross. He said so we are to believe it, the devil will try to tell you that it is OK to still do the old you, tell him the Lord Jesus rebuke him you are a new creation the old you was left in the grave…just as Jesus’s fleshly body was left in the grave.We have to know who we are in Christ Jesus, live the life for the world to see Christ in us, we can not look like the world act like the world the old you is dead and buried. you have change citizenship Heaven is now your home… we are God’s ambassadors,we are  citizens of heaven, we might not feel like we are sitting in heaven at this time, But God said we the believers are, we are in Christ Jesus who is seated at His right side, as Jesus told His disciples when they wanted to know the sign of the end He said be not deceive. the bible said we are to be wise as a serpent, and harmless as a dove, don’t fall for his tricks.
Remember Time is short Eternity is Long to spend in the LAKE OF FIRE!
Evangelist J Burton.

Grieve not the Holy Spirit?

Hebrews 4:32 After Paul have explain the chapter through to :30, Paul said, and grieve not the Holy Spirit of God where ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Paul only talk to the believers who are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise…who are redeemed, and are awaiting that day of redemption when we shall receive our new everlasting body.

I was sitting and, meditating on why my spirit is grieving what I see people who are supposed to be of God, whose appearance are not Godly. It came in me it’s the Holy Spirit that is in you who is grieving.

I don’t think people really understand the the Holy Spirit He is a living Being (person)invisible in the believers. Who also let you feel His present. Not by speaking in tongues the devil does that very well.

Speaking in tongues the Bible said it is a language…those who do so must have an interpreter.

This who the Holy Spirit is, His attribute. 1. Holy Spirit is life Romans 8:2, 2 He has a Will 1Corinthians 12:11, 3 is omniscient 1 Corinthians 2:10-11, 4 eternal, Hebrews 9:14, 4 Omnipresent, Psalms 139:7 Matthew 28:19 said only a being is equal to God… the Holy Spirit is God.

It is God Who lives in a believer…He said by their fruits ye shall know them. He has given to us much examples, all animals are different, but you can make the distinction, but most of all I look at the word systems.

Every one have to have an identity card. You can know a military person by there outward appearance, which service they represent. But only a few God has and you can tell who they are as a true believer…because God can’t lie He lives in them, Satan is the master of lies.

Every one can be identified…all the plants have their identity, even the fishes of the sea… but God took it a little further, as to place the fishes in this ocean of salt, that only they can survey.

My take off this is if they can live in this salt water, and it doesn’t effect them so can the believers live in this world, and it doesn’t have affect us. Because we are insulated. We are in this world but not of this world… the believers are sealed with Christ in God.

This is why this way of life can’t be fake, because God is in control of His people. You can not be sealed in Christ, and God and Satan, He said either you are for me or you are against me…you can’t serve two masters.

Oh if people can only get this right. Do you know that you can’t fool a believer if you’re a true believers when we meet do you know without opening your mouth the Holy Spirit confirms to each other that we are one.

People quick to say we are judging it not ourself it is the Holy Spirit who is in charge. God knows His own because It’s one Spirit, one Spirit that baptized us into the body of Christ.

If people would follow God’s words and not what man has to say about it there would be more true believer, only believers are baptize into the body of Christ…therefore if you’re tied to this world you are not in Christ Jesus,the devil have you blinded.

Please seek the Lord while He May yet be found.

The world has experience a little fire as California burned, I called it little compering to what the lake of fire 🔥 will be. Just consider being in that fire for all eternity, but Those who deceived the people will have a much hotter part…this is for real God said it, it’s going to happen.

Time is short Eternity is long to live in a lake of fire.

Just Who Are The True Believers?

`Just Who Are The True Believers?

I am asking this question simply because it is so heard to tell  who is who. Seeing what is happening in the world to day How many are taking notice of this I wonder, how many are concern about their ETERNITY?

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. When you are a true believer you are walking in the light, God has taken you out of darkness,and brought you into this marvelous light. A true believer will stand up for their belief, serving God is baste on BELIEVING TAKING GOD AT HIS WORD

There are so many Christians who are mixed up in politic,but this is not scripture.How would you know if you  don’t know  the word the bible. I’m finding this out more from those suppose to be higher ups with all of their degrees , but still don’t know God’s words.

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. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 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 13:1-

The power to be is there by God, He puts up and He takes down. This is Satan’s. world, but God is still in control. Believers are not to take part in politic, a believer would not disobey the law we don’t have to have fear of law officers because we are up standing people…God fearing people. Just think if the whole world was like the true believers what a better world this would be.

Satan is the ruler of this world, but this is God’s world all dough Satan is the god of this world he is limited to so much. It came to me like this, when a  person leased a place, home, building even a car like I did for the passed six years. You do not have ownership of it you only have limited amount of control, when that time is up you have to turn it over to the owned…you have no choice. This is what Satan has a limited amount of control.

Revelation told us that Christ Jesus  have to buy back the world from Satan, it tells about the seven seals only the Lamb of God could open those seal no one else could have done this, He paid the price with his blood by going to the cross. The raft of God has to come upon this world because of Man disobedient, God is going to cleanse this world,along with heaven because Satan had trample both places. God is starting over from scratch, with a new heaven, and earth.

The rules are not for terror it is for good works when you are doing that which is wright you don’t have to worry about the law enforcers coming after you  those who disobeyed the rules  they go to jail or what ever their crime may be they have to pay for it,

When the bible said we are in this world but not of this world, love not the world nor the things that are in  this world.It sames as if there are many who maybe don’t know that this is in their bible. There is a saying you can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk?   Many can preach Christ Jesus they are looking to big up them self…looking to make a name for them self. looking for riches which some of them has…but by what expense and false hood, they rather take the risk to miss lead people so that they can live a rich life, and the people they are leading right in to hell with them self.

The bible said every one must stand before God. He has given us His word His guideline instruction in the the bible obedience is what He wants from you.  There is a great deception in the world  to day. With out the Holy Spirit you cannot live this life, the Holy Spirit comes to lead you and guide you into the path of righteous. At times it sound as if people trying to make God out to be a lair, this shows that they are control by Satan which God say he was a lair from the beginning.

I am going to give you some take for inference. God said obedience is better than  sacrifice, God don’t want your praising your services He want you to bayed Him…nothing else matter but to bayed Him.  Every thing that GOD said to do Satan said no do it his way. I’s OK for the sinners to do this because they belong to him, but those who claim to be a child of God and are doing like the world it is obvious that they are non of God’s . The sad thing about this is that they don’t know it. This is what happen when you don’t know the word…you can easily be deceive.

The bible said to separate your self from the world, as a child of God Apostle Paul said leaving those thing behind moving on to perfection, a true believer is one who love the Lord, who stay in the word who enjoy studying, enjoy talking about the word of God love being around the people of God…you just want to share that what you know, and  constantly talking to the Lord.

I often wonder what is the mind set of those who say they are Christians, and they are no different than  those who are not claiming to be one. the Lord said you are different, but there is no different you still desire to look like the world act like the worldly people. They are putting so much impasses  on  their  body all of the changes that they are making  no commitment to God…but yet because you may join a church, and pay tithes,  get baptized you are save this is a lie from Satan,

This body that so many are trying to pretty up, just to hear that you are beautiful, but if you was a true believer you would have known this all along. God said we are wonderful and beautifully  made,God said you are beautiful, Satan said you are not in stead of listening to God you listen to the devil. He has nothing for you. God have in reserve a new body to live for ever, but your choice is to live with the devil in the lake of fire for ever? it is such a waste!

When God made man He blew His breath in to man and he became a living soul, this is why a person will live forever…because we all are breathing the breath of God who is the everlasting Father. Those who has chosen Him will live for ever with Him in heaven, but will rule the Kingdom with Christ Jesus. Some don’t  know this, I heard people said we are going to walk around heaven all day…not so said the bible, we are going to have responsibly, at different levels.

THIS IS A TRUE BELIEVER.

A true believer first have to believe that Christ Jesus died was buried, and rose from the again. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 This is called the gospel of grace…a mystery that was given to apostle Paul for the Gentiles. Once you believe you are now sealed  with the Holy Spirit of promise who places you into the body of Christ. 2 Corinthians 3:17 you are a new creation in Christ, old things are pass a way. Behold ALL things are become new.

A true believer mind the things of God, see the Holy Spirit is a living organism living inside of you. The world now have a bad taste in your mouth, the desire for the things of this world is no longer there, because God is in control. When you become a child of God it’s a total surrender… it’s like both hands are up totally surrender to the Lord there is no other way for me to go Lord take my life, and  LET IT BE WHAT EVER YOU WANTS IT TO BE.

This is a simple little pray if you don’t know the Lord, and now you want to be a part of Him for ever. Lord Jesus I’m a sinner Confessing my sin to you as best as I know I believe you died for me was buried and rose again you done this all for me. I except you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord for saving me.

Time is short Eternity is long there is no ending to spend in a lake of fire.
