Bible Study Listen to what apostle Paul is saying…remember everything that he is saying is the word of God.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Take a close look…this is describing this world that we are living in. There is not a word of death and distraction that we read in Revelation, Not a word of what we normally expect about the tribulation horror of those seven years. Why wouldn’t Paul mention these terrible events? Because we will be out of here! (Pre-tribulation) A closer study of these five verses will show that we are getting closer.
Look at the moral and spiritual breakdown, even in one of the nations claiming a biblical foundation (America). It is evident every way we turn… when I see what is going on in the churches today it is heartbreaking. Christ said they worship me with their lips but their hearts are far from me.
Most people are hung up on liberal theology. What is liberal theology? It is anything that ignores apostle Paul’s Gospel, for catch-phrases such as ”believe in Jesus,” ”take him into your heart,” or take ”Jesus as your savior”. Compare this to Paul’s Gospel,1 Corinthians 15:1-4 also Romans1:16 Put tradition far away…so many of us are so stuck in tradition, and read these scriptures carefully. find out what he is saying, and what he is not saying.
Paul said in Romans 2:16 In the day when GOD SHALL JUDGE THE SECRETS OF MAN BY JESUS CHRIST ACCORDING TO MY GOSPEL. People, please take this seriously this is your eternal life. Christ loves you so much He has done what he came to do. He left his powers with His disciples to finish His work to His people…so that if they will receive them He would have come back and set up His kingdom…they did not except in unbelief. Christ left his chosen one here with his words…and guideline for us to day, now that the Apostle is no longer here, but his Gospel is here for us to go by… People we don’t have any other guideline to go by…as being the Gentiles the body of Christ.
Romans 16:25 Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,
This is one of the reason most don’t believe in the apostle Paul is because what he is saying…it is nowhere else in the bible. He said it’s a mystery (secret) God kept it a secret until he was ready to reveal it…God chosen Paul for this, all you have to do is to believe this, it is your choice. We who are the believers we are left here to carry on from where the apostle Paul left off. We have to let you know the truth…which is the word of God. Paul said rightful dividing (separating) the word of truth, you can’t mix old with the new.
If the trump shall sound today, are you ready? The bible said, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the trumpet ONE shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. This is not the trumpets of Revelation, This is Christ taking His people out of here before the tribulation which Revelation is all about. I believe there are seven trumpets of Revelation. This also is the mystery Paul tell us about…you will only find this kind of message in his teaching (doctrines). Which is for the believers primly Gentiles.
If the trump shall sound today, are you ready? Remember time is short, eternity is long to stay in the lake of fire.
How Can I be saved? This pray will do it for you it is so simple… the enemy will tell you it is hard to give up the things of this world…don’t be fool by him. if you wait to change your self it will never happen you have to accept Christ first then the Holy Spirit will take over because He is now in control. This is the most important decision you will ever make in your life.
Dear Lord, I’m a sinner confessing my sin to you I am ready to live for you, I believe you died for me was buried and rose from the dead I except you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord, for saving me. This has to be a heart confession, not a lips confession… if it is from your heart you are now saved. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are not. read your bible pray to the Lord for strength and knowledge of His word.
I thank God for your salvation. Evangelist J Burton.
The Apostle Paul Chosen For The Gentiles.
Apostle Paul said he was the apostle of the Gentiles. There are some who are saying he should have waited and join in with Jesus disciples. Some are saying that he is not fit to be an apostle. I would ask those people do they know how Paul got that position…did he just walk into it? No one have that right to question God He is sovereign, He answered to no one.
Apostle Paul was chosen from the beginning. Jesus said this. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. Paul said I’m the least of the apostle For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet (worthy) to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. Here he repeated it again…Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
Paul did not know that Jesus said this. When something is repeats, It’s to take note. Jesus said he will be the greatest in the kingdom. There is not a man on earth who suffered as Paul did.
Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.
Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
In journeying often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
In weariness and painfulness, in watching often, in hunger and thirst, in tastings often, in cold and nakedness.
Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches. KJV.
Are there any other person in the bible suffer like he did? I will say no! In the end he was beheaded, it was said he ran to the gallows. Jesus suffer the death of the cross no human could have done what He did, when you evaluate what Paul went through. He is the only human ever went to heaven and came back, when they stoned him, and cast him out of the city he was taken to heaven he could not talk about it…to be sure that he will not talk God had satin to afflict him. In spite of all he has suffer now he has this thorn in his flash, he said he ask the Lord three times to heal him the Lord said His grace is sufficient for him. The sickness that he was afflicted with a sickness of the eyes maybe what we known as the pink eye. In one of his writing he said see how much of a large letter I am writing unto you with my own hands, because he had some one to write for him because he could not see well.
Some are saying that in the day of the Lord apostle Paul would be the one that present the bride (the church) to Christ for the wedding celebration. When I read this it’s tells me this is the truth. While the world is going through the tribulation the Church will be for seven years celebrating.
Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. KJV
This is why Paul said he was the apostle for the Gentiles. All he went through it was to bring the gospel of grace to the Gentiles. You can not dismiss him if you don’t believe what he is saying as the messenger of God chosen by Him then… this is what he said in the day when God shall judge the secret of man according to my gospel by Christ Jesus. Also My gospel is the commandment of God. What is the gospel? To believe that Christ died was buried, and rose from the dead…HE SAID BY THIS GOSPEL YOU ARE SAVE. We can’t take these words slightly not if you want to live for ever. When you come to the Lord you are espoused (engaged) to Christ you are spoken for.
When a man asked a woman to marry him he puts a ring on her finger… we will say she is espoused, spoken for, she is in a relationship, she is off limits. This is who you are, you are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, that man or the woman can brake that relationship at any time, because they are human they can fall out of love. God put a seal on you that can not be broken…you are sealed with the holy Spirit of promise…you’re planted with Christ in God.
Apostle Paul suffer for the gospel to come to us, Christ Jesus laid the foundation, Paul build upon it, he said there is no other foundation can be laid than this which Christ has laid. When the new kingdom comes Paul will be the greatest in it. Paul knew this I believe when he went to heaven. I believe God wanted to show him that what he is doing it will not be in vain. He did not mind his suffering, because he knows how he punish those who believed that Jesus was the son of God. When we all gathered to Join the Lord for this celebration this man will be the one who present us His bride to Him.
for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
He could not have said this unless it was told to him. We can’t speak on events until it was told to us. The bible said no man knows the mind of God. How many people knowing that they are going to die, and run to be headed. Remember Paul wanted to go a long time ago, but because of his commitment, and faithfulness he said he rather not go. Now that his work is finish no more suffering, no more rejection, he said how all of his followers turn a way from him. This is the position of the saints when you know who you are in Christ Jesus, when you know that you have obeyed Him in all He ask of you, and understand what is waiting for you… then you will have this longing to go home…a home you will never have to give up…for all eternity.
At time I am so ready to go, I know that most of my family are not ready to go. Every day, and night I’m asking the Lord to save them. Last night as I was praying I said to the Lord I’m not going to ask for you to save them, I’m thanking you for saving them because I know that you heard my pray. If I don’t live to see it we will meet in heaven this is my belief.
I’m doing what ever I can to get people in to the body of Christ, because when the body is complete since He is the head the control of the body He will come to meet us in the air…these are His words. As Apostle Paul said absent from this body to be present with the Lord. What child of God who would not want this…this world is not going to get any better, the bible said it is going to get worst.
I know the Lord will say to me welcome in you have been faithful well done. Apostle Paul said
For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
This I will say how did Apostle Paul know this to tell us?
This is our encouragement people, you have so much to gain, All you have to do is to be obedient, He said if you love me you will obey Me. Obedience is better than sacrifices. Faith, and believe goes to gather if you believe God’s words you will obey…with out faith it is impassable to please God. There is a crown also waiting for you who live a righteous life.
Evangelist J Burton.
God has two groups of people, you are either a Jew or a Gentile. One can only be a Jew by birth. God did not put them here at the same time, when he did He kept them apart He told them not to mix with the Egyptians. He gave them their laws to go by. After dealing with them because of disobedient he turn to the Gentiles…therefor Law and grace cant’t mix. God gave us the bible in three parts, past, present, and future. This is why apostle Paul said study to show your self approve rightly DIVIDING The word of truth. first was God dealing with His chosen people, Jesus came to fulfill the law, and prophets. They rejected Him therefore He went to the cross so that He can save the whole world. Now He doing some thing totally different, Paul called it a mystery ( secret) that God kept until now, and revealed it to him for the Gentiles.
We the believers are after the cross, the Jews are before the cross.
When Jesus was on earth He told His disciples not to go in the way of the Gentiles nor the Samaritans, but rather go to the whole house of Israel. Jesus had no message for the Gentiles. There is about two exception the thief on the cross, and the Gentile woman. where he told her that He can’t give the children meat unto the dogs. She said to Him that the dogs eat the crumbs from the table…because of her faith he healed her daughter.
The book of Acts is a book of transformation.
God is now leaving off the Jews, and turning to the Gentiles. The first chapters of Acts is God dealing with the Jews, this is why Jesus left His disciples with the power that He had, He worked miracles to let the Jews know who he was The Jews require a sign. that if they had believe his disciples He would have come back, and set up His kingdom. Stephan was letting them know who Jesus was. and telling them about their action their history, and what they did, they killed their Messiah. But before this Luke told about Stephan been full of the Holy Spirit, quite a few time this was repeated…when the scripture repeats it self it is to pay attention it has to be for a reason.
Jesus said to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time. And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty. And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty. And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out. Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son:
Stephen was telling them that they killed the prophets, they killed Jesus their Messiah, they could not stand it any longer, remember I said Stephen was
filled with the Holy Spirit…after all of this the Holy Spirit was the only onleft, they rejected the prophets, and Jesus, now they are rejecting the Holy Spirit who is in dwelling Stephen. What did they do they stoned him.
Now who was there consenting to his death? Saul now, God is leaving the Jews, and going to the Gentiles, through the apostle Paul…him being a good Jew he went to the temple preaching Jesus was the son of God. This was there believe of faith.Through him we get our doctrine…the gospel of Grace. God sent him to the Gentile, just as He sent Moses to the Jews. He must have a leader for his people, . We are in the present, the age of grace. Our doctrine comes from Romans through Philemon, also Hebrews have a lot to offer.
One may wonder why I don’t give out scriptures, I’m talking to believers who want to grow, and love to study the word. This is the way the Holy Spirit advise me, If I give you the scripture I am not helping you, you may go and read it then put your bible away. but if I tell you it is in your bible you will look it up meaning search by doing this you may see something that you may not have known was in the bible. His message for the Gentile is to believe that Jesus died was buried and rose from the dead this is the gospel…by which we are save.
I will give you this scripture for salvation 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Paul said by THIS gospel you are save Romans 10:9- is also telling you haw to be save, most don’t know what is the gospel, some said the gospel of Jesus Christ, there is no such gospel, Jesus preach the gospel of the kingdom. Remember the believers are in the body of Christ Jesus…meaning Christ will have to come down to earth for those seven years to go through the tribulation with us, therefor the wedding that is to take place in heaven with the saints, while the world is going through the tribulation, I guest the Lord will have to put that on hold. “Not scripture”. The 480 years of Daniel that was prophecy, when Jesus came they all was fulfilled except for 7 years. Remember the Jews are God’s covenant people where was the Gentiles when God was dealing with them? God is not a mix up God He deal with one nation at a time. He said I will call them ‘my people who are not my people. Who was not His people? The Gentiles. God always had them in mind, remember Heaven, and earth.
This is what was revealed to the apostle Paul the word of God. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come except there come a falling( a carrying away ) FIRST, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition ( Utter distraction ) Most are saying this means that people are going to go back to there old ways, not so as a believer we are seal with the Holy Spirit of Promise this is our earnest down payment for our new body that is waiting us, we have a double security we are sealed with Christ in God…even God will not put us out. Now this is for the born ones, meaning born from above.
The tribulation will not come until the body of Christ is Complete then He will take us out of here, we will meet Him in the air. when a person come to the Lord you are place into His body which limb you are who knows as long as you are in HIS BODY YOU MAY BE THE HAND OR EVEN THE LITTLE TOE, we all have a position in Him He is the HEAD , when that body is complete then He will come and get us. we will make Him complete, we are His compliment. It is like a baby in the mother’s womb when it is completely form then it is delivery time. We are His workman ship, we will be with Him for ever.
These books was written to the Jews, Hebrews, James,1,2, Peter, 1,2,3, John Jude, revelation. Who believe that Jesus was the Son of God. we can learn from these as Paul said they was written for our learning, there are no doctrine here for the body of Christ.
When the believers are gone then Revelation will open up. There will be three, and one half years of peace, because the Antichrist is coming as a peaceful man. He will deceive the whole world that he is bringing them peace… after he get them to give up their weapons Especially Israel for they are waiting for their Messiah who will bring them Peace, then he will take control of the world. Christ is the prince of peace there will be no peace until He come, and set up his Kingdom.
We don’t have to be baptize, we don’t have to join a church house (we are the church the body of Christ ) we don’t have to pay tithes this was under the law for the Jews. Christ said it was finish. this is all works…we are save through faith just believe what Christ has done for us, salvation is free. Trough faith plus nothing.
We are ruling with Christ. we are His heavenly people the Jews are His earthly people. God have deeded them most of the middle East this will be their home land when He set up his Kingdom. Can it get more clear than this? We have to be obedient to Him other wise you will get left out. Eternity is long, time is short!
Evangelist J Burton.
There are three sins that will keep people out of heaven.
These sins are the PRIDE OF LIFE, THE LUST OF THE EYE, AND THE LUST OF THE FLISH. These are govern by satin. This is what he used to deceive Eve the fruit looked so good, if she eat it she will feel she can be as god.
This is pride Satin said I will rise above the stars (angels) I Will be as God. when you find your self saying I don’t see any thing wrong with what I’m doing…every one is doing it why not. When God sad do it this way then you have to much pride, you fare non of His. it is not of God be who he said you are a new creation in Him, Satan no longer has control over you.
Christ set the example for his people. Satin temped Him first with these same things. Chris rebuked him. if you are one of His He want you to follow His guideline. yes Satan will tempt you this is his job he is in computation with Christ, he want what God has, but he is created by God, he think that he should be God.
As I am writing this the Spirit reveal this to me. Why did satin tempted Eve instead of Adam? Have you notice God told Adam not Eve. I believe it was for this reason that he must tempt the Lord, and the Lord must leave a message as his own we don’t have to give in to satin…the Holy Spirit is taking care of us. Another thought satin choose the woman he knew that Adam would not have fall for that, because God gave him instruction. Some think that Adam was by Eve side if this was so Eve would not have done it…he would not let her do this. The devil Choose the woman to do his work…God chooses the man for his purpose.
Woman to day are doing their own thing what they are doing is not in the word of God..it is strictly from satin. Again pride is keeping them from finding out the truth…Dangerous!
this is pride Satan said I will rise above the stars (angels) I Will be as God. when you find your self saying I don’t see any thing wrong with what I’m doing…when God sad do it this way then you have to much pride, and it is not of God be who he said you are a new creation in Him, pride is a dangerous thing…many are going to hell because of it.
God said to walk humble before Him…a humble child shall taste His grace, being a believer the devil has no more control over you.
1John said love not the world nor the things that are in the world, if you love the world the love of the father is not in you. Therefor when you love the world and looking like the world lusting after it you are none of God.
He love you he forgave all of your sin, if you will chose to follow his way.
you can do this right now with this simple pray…Dear Lord I’m a sinner confessing my sin to you I’m ready to live for you, I believe you died for me you where buried and rose from the dead I except you as my Lord and savior…thank you Lord for saving me. So simple it is all by faith believe that you are now save start making changes in your life, tell others that you are now save.
Read your bible. If you say this with an honest heart God has done the rest you are in the body if Christ.
Eternity Is forever in a lake of fire this is why Christ died so you can live for ever with him. Right now you are living with the devil who don’t love you he hate you because God made you, and want you.
Eternity in forever in a lake of fire…this is for real people it is in the last book of the bible. Heaven for ever more!
Evangelist J Burton.
Apostle Paul was giving Timothy this young pastor whom he has tough for this purpose to take over where he is leaving of. He was warning him what will be a head of him.
2 Timothy 4:3-8 King James Version (KJV)
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
We are see so much of this to day, practically all of the churches are full…but are they save? Most will say only God can judge. The bible said the believers will judge angels. Paul told Timothy to rebuke, and exhort as a messenger of God, and if you are a child of God you shall be glad to know where you stand in Him. When you are obedient to Him we are to let you know that you are doing a good job.
He said they shall turn away their ears from the truth. And SHALL be turn unto Fables…LIES..FOLSE. This is the words of God. This is to show you how powerful God’s words are, He let you know in advance the plants of satin, and He tells you how to avoid him. People if you are being told that God looks at the heart, and as long as your heart is pure this is all God wants, Maybe this is why the churches are so full their itches ear are being suede. People you are being feed from satin in stead of God. Those of the world…satin has all of you this is why you dresses the way you do;
Your body is how you make your statement no won knows your heart nor do they care to know, because your body tells who you really are. See there are no pretenses in God. He knows His own, because He lives in His own. If there are no changes in you, you still have the lust of the world, you still dress the same way when you where in the world…you are a lair! Because God said you are a new creation in Him, OLD THINGS are passed away
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
As believers we all have a responsible we are God’s messenger to this world, you don’t even have to open your mouth at times…they will come to you because they can see that you are different, We have to make that different if not you are fooling your self, because God has the final word.
This what I’m doing trying to fulfill duties of my calling, it is a heard fight because as Paul said the god of this world have them in blindness. People hear the word, they go to church they does all the works that is not require for salvation. Bible
There are so many different translations of the bible, Now the bible is the holy word of God. Man took it upon them self to change words to their benefit, in order to please man.Some said so that people can understand it. now tell me God made every thing…Christ Jesus is the word, If there was something in there that GOD did not want in there He would not let it be in there.
If you are not for God then you are for the devil. he has tricks for you. If the holy Spirit is in you, you will see the tricks of the devil. Christ said he is a deceiver, this is the signs of the end time. Here are some of the words that common man Remove out of the Holy bible to please them self. People it is your responsible to search for the truth it’s in your bible the Holy Bible. When the Dead sea scroll was found it was said that the book of Isiah was found in it, there was no different than what is in the bible
The bible was written by holy man inspired by the Holy Spirit…therefor those bible can’t be Holy bibles they are not God’s inspire words. Don’t be confuse by them Buy the King James bible this was proven to to the most authentic Bible out there to day. Bible
