Grace- What S Flurry should know about and Joy what R Fraser should know.
Jan/ Feb 2010 RV, S Flurry writes about “GRACE”. GOD knew no one can keep the Law. Then, all have to die. But GOD would not allow anyone to die spiritually, as that is why JESUS CHRIST came and died. When all are dead spiritually, (Laodicean era) ,having sinned, Grace is needed and given by GOD. It is available only during the "Times of Refreshing". That is now, after the Laodicean era, when all seven eras have failed, the woman who bore seven has breathed her last and the virgin of Israel has fallen NEVER TO RISE AGAIN. Grace or mercy of JESUS CHRIST is not needed if one can live after being baptized, repent and live by Holy Spirit as SF teaches. Is any of the leaders righteous? Eze 34, 16:52, alone proves they are not.
RV Jan 2010 …pg 15…S Flurry wrote;…
“While grace is a free, unmerited gift, it is conditional. GOD requires certain things of us before we receive His grace. Jesus said that unless we repent, we will all perish. …. ‘repent’ means ‘to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life; to feel regret: to change one’s mind”. Repentance means turning from sins”.
Grace is NOT conditional. If it was, then the harlots and tax collectors could not go in to the kingdom before all elders did as they are sinners. But the elders are baptized and are supposed to be keeping the Law. Then how could the harlots go first? THE Gentiles ARE APPOINTED TO RECEIVE GRACE BEFORE Israel DOES, EVEN NOT HAVING THE Law as PROVEN.
Mat 21:31… JESUS CHRIST said “ truly I say to you, The tax collectors and the harlots go before you into the kingdom of GOD”…. He said, they will go in to the kingdom before to the CHIEF PRIESTS AND ELDERS. How could the harlots go to the kingdom, before the elders if GOD’s grace is conditional and need to repent ??? It is GOD’s kindness which causes anyone to repent. ( Rom 2: 4 ). That is UNCONDITIONAL GRACE. Even when the Law is broken, GOD gives His mercy and causes us to repent. So grace is unconditional. The repentance also caused by GOD’s grace.
It is true that all Israel need to repent as they were given the Law and broke it. No one can keep the Law, unless GOD’s GRACE AND MERCY will cause them to repent. The ones who were NOT GIVEN THE Law, the Gentiles can go in to the kingdom before Israel as PROVEN, as they did not need to be judged. Only those who were within the Law need to be judged. This is why JESUS CHRIST Had mercy on Gentiles and saved them first .. before Israel as Rom 11 says.
Rom 11:6 But if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.
Rom 11:7 What then? Israel has not obtained that which it seeks, but the election obtained it, and the rest were hardened
Rom 11:8 even as it is written, "God gave to them a spirit of slumber, eyes not seeing, and ears not hearing" until this day.
Rom 11:11 I say then, Did they not stumble that they fall? Let it not be! But by their slipping away came salvation to the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. …}}}… Israel has NOT OBTAINED the mercy… but the Gentiles did.
Mat 21:32 For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him. But the tax-collectors and the harlots believed him. And having seen, you did not repent afterwards to believe him. …}}}… what is the “way or righteousness” ??? He says they did not repent to ‘BELIEVE HIM”. This verse and as PROVEN before, the righteousness is to worship the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD… . (If you do not believe in JESUS CHRIST, you cant be righteous.) There are no two gods. John-the Baptist proclaimed the “Lamb of GOD”.. JESUS CHRIST. It is JESUS CHRIST, Israel did not believe. That shows the ‘way of righteousness’ is to believe JESUS CHRIST. You must believe Him and exalt Him. All Israel are scattered and in captivity as Jam 1:1 says, because they did not gather to JESUS CHRIST. ( Mat 12: 30). This is why you need to repent. Unless you believe in the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD, the first commandment is broken and all others are broken as well.
( it is GOD’s goodness and mercy which causes anyone to REPENT EVEN. Because of GOD’s UNCONDITIONAL mercy and grace ; that He sends the words to correct such false teachings. ‘salvation’ means to be saved from such false teachings. IT IS PROPHESIED THAT JESUS CHRIST WILL COME IN THE LAST DAYS TO TEACH THIS TRUTH. GOD’s unconditional grace can save anyone, spiritually little children. JESUS CHRIST thanked the Father for revealing hidden things to “BABES”. The “BABES” are to perfect the praise of JESUS CHRIST ( Psa 8). This is how the Gentiles are saved. They are prophesied to be saved first, before Israel. When GOD introduced Himself to Moses, He said My Name is “I AM” which means I can have mercy on whomever I wish …( Exo. 33: 19). ( THIS HAPPENS AT THE TIME WHEN GOD REVEALS HIS NAME)
Repent and BELIEVE…. What should you BELIEVE ??? You must repent for NOT BELIEVING. What did you not believe ??? You did not believe “IN JESUS CHRIST ”. The way of righteousness . ( this fact alone proves that HWA is not Elijah, or john the Baptist as he preaches TWO GODS).
Act 2:38 And Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized, each of you on the name of Jesus Christ to remission of sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Act 2:39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all those afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call….}}}… REPENT AND BE BAPTISED, WHEN THE NAME OF THE TRUE GOD IS DECLARED, WHICH IS NOW. If you have not already proven in our writings, it is the Gentiles who would be proclaiming the praises and the name of JESUS CHRIST. When the true name of GOD is declared, you are to repent for not believing and then be baptized in the sea of knowledge or the Holy Spirit , the fire which are the words of JESUS CHRIST . Holy Spirit, itself is a gift.
Act 7:52 Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those before proclaiming concerning the coming of the Just One, of whom you now have become betrayers and murderers, …}}}… Which GOD is the “JUST ONE”??? It is JESUS CHRIST… who is the fist and the last… ( Isa. 48:12). Israel killed all the prophets including the two witnesses who would be proclaiming the name of JESUS CHRIST…
Isa 48:12 Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, My called; I am He; I am the first, I also am the last….
Rev 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, the First and the Last. …}}}… do you believe that JESUS CHRIST Is the First and the Last ?? No… You believe in TWO gods. This is what you need to repent of. Exalt the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD… this is what John the baptist tried to tell all which they did not believe…
“Acts 3:19 says “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out”… Having your sins blotted out or receiving grace, only follows repentance and conversion. Conversion means change : a conversion to a new and different way of life.”…. }}}… When Does GOD wants all to repent ? It is during the "Times of Refreshing".
Act 3:19 Therefore, repent, and convert, for the blotting out of your sins, so that times of refreshing may come from the face of the Lord,
Act 3:20 and that He may send forth the One before proclaimed to you, Jesus Christ,
Act 3:21 whom Heaven truly needs to receive until the times of restoration of all things, of which God spoke through the mouth of all His holy prophets from the age past. …}}}… "Times of Refreshing" comes, from the face of the LORD, that is JESUS CHRIST, and He will be in the heavens “until” ….. the "Times of Refreshing"…, that means when the "Times of Refreshing" comes, JESUS CHRIST Has to come. This is why He comes down… in Revelation when the judgments are to begin ( 1 cor 4:5, Isa. 11: 9-11, Hos 6: 3 , Heb 1: 2 , 2 Thes 2 etc ). “Refreshing” means GOD’s breath as PROVEN. That is the time He comes to consume the man of sin and at the same time gives His breath, which are the words so all can learn the truth and worship Him in Spirit and in truth. Scripture proves this is the "Day of Visitation" … or the "Day of The Lord" . at that time it is the Gentiles who would be working for Him as PROVEN.
When He comes the SECOND time, Israel need to be delivered. And He gives all knowledge like the sea to Gentiles whom seek Him. ( Isa. 11: 9-11. That is when the earth shall be full of knowledge. So until then no matter how much you say you worship Him, you don’t. Didn’t JESUS CHRIST say that the Jews will not worship Him in Spirit and in truth ??? The truth about JESUS CHRIST is what you need to learn during the "Times of Refreshing".
Pg 15…”As the baptismal ceremony symbolizes, He washes you of your past guilt and imparts His Holy Spirit within you, which is the power we need to live according to the Spirit to convert to a new way of life.”…..}}…”If we can be converted after baptism”? ; Does this mean after the baptism one would not sin ? Then why Does GOD accuse all the leaders in Eze 34 , and why all the sisters have gone in to captivity in Eze 16:52? Then why do we need a time call "Times of Refreshing" AFTER THE JUDGMENTS ??? Why Does JESUS CHRIST have to come and give the knowledge as the sea in the end of the age when Israel need to be recovered a SECOND time ? Why do they need a baptism by ‘FIRE”??
You cannot be converted in to a new way of life unless you become a new creature in JESUS CHRIST…
2Co 5:17 So that if any one is in Christ, …a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. …}}}… when you come to know JESUS CHRIST and exalt Him only you can be gathered…or converted in to a new creature. ( Mat 12: 30, Joh 12: 32 ). NO matter how many times you receive the baptism, unless you exalt JESUS CHRIST and (not God The Father, or the leaders ) you will not become a new creature. ALL THINGS BECOME NEW when the everlasting gospel is preached about JESUS CHRIST and how to be saved through Him. ( Rev 14: 6- 7) As long as you believe God The Father or exalt your leaders, this gospel could not be understood. This is why even the spiritual man… the prophet is a FOOL on the "Day of Visitation" , when JESUS CHRIST comes the second time. (Hos. 9:7)
Just think… why Has GOD set a part a period called ‘"Times of Refreshing", if it is not to refresh and make all new , or to RESTORE , all the way in the END OF THE AGE. ?? Why is there a day called "Day of Visitation" ??? "Times of Gentiles", which is the "Day of The Lord" ??? Eze 30: 3???
GOD’s judgments are to bring light… or to open the eyes of the blind. But as you will see, the Gentiles’s minds are opened before Israel’s. "Times of Refreshing" comes , AFTER THE FINAL FALLING AWAY which Ezekiel caused (Eze 24: 21, 12: 2, 2 Thes 2,) then GOD’s judgments come by GRACE to bring LIGHT to them.
Hos 6:5 So I have hewn them by the prophets; I have slain them by the Words of My mouth; and your judgments have been as the light that goes forth.
Hos 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
Hos 6:7 But, like Adam, they have broken the covenant; they have acted like traitors against Me there. …}}}… GOD Has slain the prophets by HIS WORDS. The last prophet only broke the covenant. This is the main reason GOD wants Ezekiel to see before the New Temple is built. ( Eze 44:7). The man of sin is now consumed by the truth as a judgment to bring light to him to correct his work of error which is also came from GOD with His delusion. The judgments are to bring light… not to kill anyone. GOD desires MERCY and not your works…(In Isa. 43: 21-23 GOD says your offerings are a burden to Him.) and the “knowledge about the true GOD”, who is JESUS CHRIST… which is preached during the judgments as Rev 14: 6- 7, more than your offerings…. They have broken the covenant…. and they are traitors who betrayed their Husband, the Maker… ( GOD was married to PCG as Eze 16 says before they broke the covenant) they do not know JESUS CHRIST. This is why The LORD is exalted in JUDGMENTS ( Isa. 5: 16).
Eze 44:7 when you brought in the sons of aliens, uncircumcised of heart and uncircumcised of flesh, to be in My sanctuary, to profane it, even My house, when you bring near My bread, the fat and the blood. And they have broken My covenant by all your abominations. …}}}… this is talking about building the New Temple… so just before it’s being built, GOD is showing Ezekiel about these as his eyes were closed in Eze 12: 2.
“GOD’s Holy Spirit as the agent required to change from a sinful way of life – “… }}}… How does Holy Spirit come upon us ?? What Is Holy Spirit ??? The only way to have Holy Spirit is through the words of JESUS CHRIST…
Joh 6:63 It is the Spirit that gives life. The flesh does not profit, nothing! The Words which I speak to you are spirit and are life. …}}}… The ‘WORDS” of JESUS CHRIST… are Spirit which gives life. Notice, even in these three verses, we can see that Holy Spirit, and the ‘WORDS’ of JESUS CHRIST, Is the “Father ”.
Joh 6:64 But there are some of you who are not believing. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were, the ones not believing, and who was the one betraying Him. …}}}… JESUS CHRIST knew that His own would betray Him. As written above , it is Ezekiel, who betrayed Him before the New Temple is built.
Joh 6:65 And He said, Because of this, I have told you that no one is able to come to Me except it is given to him from My Father…}}}.. The ‘words’ of JESUS CHRIST Is Holy Spirit … and the “words” are Scripture which draws us to Him. That is the “Father ”. That is the allegory in JOh 16:25.
Word of GOD = JESUS CHRIST
Words of GOD = Father .
Words have to draw us to JESUS CHRIST…, but they are His own words which is the Spirit. And in v 44 it says the ‘Father ’ draws. So if the words of JESUS CHRIST are Spirit, and His words brings us to JESUS CHRIST , then that is the Father . No one could come to JESUS CHRIST, if they cannot understand the words (which is the Spirit, which are the words of JESUS CHRIST’s ). He OPENS THE Scripture TO US GIVING HIS OWN MIND. And they draws us to Him.
1Co 2:14 – 16 But a natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God,… But the spiritual one discerns all things,…. But we have the mind of Christ….}}}… “Spiritual” man in Israel is a fool when JESUS CHRIST comes the second time on the "Day of Visitation" . ( Hos 9:7). But He gives that knowledge to the Gentiles who seek Him. ( Isa. 11) Flesh and blood, the natural man, who are the children of Israel cannot receive spiritual understanding as they are MADE BLIND BY GOD IN THE LAST ERA. But the Gentiles are given the mind of JESUS CHRIST… this is why they became wise and proclaim these things .
Then JOh 16: 23- 26 proves this further. In v 23 JESUS CHRIST says the “Father” will give you.. then He says, He WILL reveal the ‘Father ’….(when the HOUR comes, ) which is an “allegory”, and after revealing the Father , when the hour came, He says in v 26…”I do NOT tell you to petition the Father ”. Why did He say in v 23 to pray for the Father … and then in v 26 says that He will NOT ??? Because… the hour came and He revealed the truth about the allegory of the Word ‘Father ’ to those who kept the Word of JESUS CHRIST. and since we know that the ‘Father ’ means His own words, we do not need to ask the Father , but we can directly ask Him, as He Is the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD. There is only ONE GOD… the Creator, The Redeemer, The Saviour… all Israel are blinded to not to know JESUS CHRIST .
Besides He will reveal the Father , which is an allegory ??? Now that the hour came which His own have betrayed Him… that is the hour He made us to know Him… during the judgments, ( Rev 10:7) and then only we started to preach the everlasting gospel in Rev 14:6- 7. Every knee shall bow down to Him…
Same pg…“In Rom 5:21, Paul writes , “That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness (obedience to GOD’s Law) unto eternal life by JESUS CHRIST our LORD”. …}}}…”Grace” reign through righteousness is NOT OBEDIENCE TO THE Law. Grace is needed as we cannot obey the Law. Gal 6: 13 says those who are circumcised do not keep the Law. Because GOD , Himself says, He gave the Law and knew that they could not live.
Eze 20:25 Therefore I also gave them statutes that were not good, and judgments by which they could not live.
Eze 20:26 And I polluted them in their own gifts, in that they caused to pass through the fire all that openeth the womb, that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD….}}}… GOD gave them statutes which they cannot keep. book of Ezekiel is for PCG.
Who is “all that openeth the womb”???... It is the “FIRST FRUITS”… PCG. All other churches were defiled and desolated SPIRITUALLY already when PCG judged others. She too finally has to go in to captivity as Eze 16:52 says, even AFTER JUDGING others, but doing worse than all. It is these ‘FIRST FRUITS” that GOD will defile and make desolate. These are the harlots in Rev 17.
What is eternal life??? It is to know the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD…JOh 17:3 (see elsewhere in this writing ) . The hour has come for JESUS CHRIST to reveal the truth about the Father and Himself. When you serve that ONE GOD, you become righteous, if you do not have idols of Israel… ( Eze 18:6, 15). What actually did Apostle Paul write in Rom 5: 21….
Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Rom 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. …}}}… Law entered to show our sins so that we can be judged. ( The Law is given to Israel… Psa 78:5) But grace will make us to live. Sin is unto death, but grace lead us to Everlasting life, through JESUS CHRIST. This is why GOD said to Apostle Paul said “Your Grace is sufficient”.. Grace is given by JESUS CHRIST… ( 1 Co 1:4) and Israel have the Law but Gentiles are given grace.
2Co 12:9 And He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness….}}}…This is why the grace is poured upon the feeble and weak as zech 12:8, written elsewhere. They are the angels serving the house of king David .
We have the grace and not FLESHLY wisdom… ( 2 Co 1:12). It is to give us grace, that JESUS CHRIST became poor for us so that we may become rich…2 Co 8:9. Then He causes the poor to raise up from the dust and make us sit with nobles … ( Psa 113: 7-8, 1 Sam 2:7- 8 ) That means the humbling of the exalted and exalting the humble. All these prophecies have to be fulfilled. Then He helps us to abound in every good work… 2 Co 9:8.
”Righteousness” is NOT OBEDIENCE TO Law. Law is ‘spiritual’…( Rom 7; 14). Law could not be kept by the FIRSTFRUITS as written above . Scripture says Israel need a new heart to obey the Law. they have broken the very first commandment. They SIMPLY DO NOT KNOW THE ONE TRUE GOD. So how could you claim that by keeping the Law that you can be converted ??? So what is the Spirit ??? It is JESUS CHRIST’s words. None in spiritual Israel could be given the words of JESUS CHRIST as they are APPOINTED TO stumble upon Him and reject Him so He could not reveal His words or give full knowledge about GODHEAD to them till after the judgments which are to bring all Israel to light. This is why the judgments have to come first to bring them light. The judgments are to correct the work of error.
GOD restores judges FIRST… then Zion ;because He wants all to live as His grace is poured upon. But , unless the uncleanness is removed, GOD cannot dwell in her. This is why GOD Has restored the judges first and then the people. It is up to all the leaders to find these judges and submit to what they teach.
Isa 1:25 And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin
Isa 1:26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city. …}}}… ‘RESTORE” the judges… what does it mean to ‘restore”??? H7725 means “again, return, turn, bring, back, come, answer, deliver, recovered, carry , relieve, repent , reverse, CONVERT, REFRESH” etc... So to clean all dross (Apostle James find their gold corroded in the last days Jm 5:3) , GOD HAS TO CONVERT OR BRING BACK OR RESTORE THE JUDGES FIRST. This is why the "Day of The Lord" , the "Times of Gentiles", the Gentiles are given to tread down the Holy city. They are the two judges , the two witnesses. Afterwards only, Zion will be a FAITHFUL CITY, OR A CITY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. So we preach JESUS CHRIST and when your veil is taken away to KNOW HIM…, they you will be faithful to Him and be righteous. So this is not a strange thing that is happening, as Rom 11 also says, the Gentiles (or judges) have to be saved first, and then all Israel.
These are the saints, who are already restored who will judge as Apostle Paul said:…
1Co 6:2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy of small judgments? ..}}}… he was writing this to Gentiles. And it is they who are saints, as they are called and elected from the beginning, before they did anything. It was GOD’s plan even from the beginning to sanctify ( 2 Thes 2: 13) these few Gentiles giving them the truth. Unless JESUS CHRIST came the second time and gave the words to Gentiles ( Isa. 11: 9- 11), no one could be a saint. Gentiles died and are risen with CHRIST … ( Colos 3: 1-4)
Isa 1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
Isa 1:28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed….}}}…”Be consumed”… it is the Joshua who is the man of sin who will be consumed by the breath of the LORD JESUS CHRIST or the words of His. GOD’s judgment is to kill them (as written elsewhere, GOD killed the prophets spiritually in order for them to seek Him ) and destroy them totally, but because of GRACE, the judgments are TURNED BACK. ( Zep 3: 15… this happen when the daughter of GOD’s people bring His offerings as now as v 10- 12 says. They are the weak and poor. ) . This is why GOD restores the judges and then the dross will be taken out and the bride will be granted to wear fine linen.
After GOD JUDGES those who are in Zion with judgment, they will be righteousness. This is what JESUS CHRIST is doing now. At this time they are spiritually naked. Unless you have the Spirit which is the words of JESUS CHRIST which is given when He comes in judgment as Isa. 11: 9- 11, they will not have full knowledge. Do you see … after your judges judge you, as has been done, then you will be given the words of JESUS CHRIST which is the Holy Spirit, with His mind to be righteous. Then only you can keep the spiritual Law. You are spiritually blind at this time. It is because of CHRIST ’s mercy and grace that He sends the words which are His Spirit to you, so you can be consumed and then be corrected. Afterwards only you will be called a FAITHFUL RIGHTEOUS CITY. So no one in spiritual Israel could keep the Law … they cannot be righteous.
All spiritual Israel should see these judges whom GOD HAS APPOINTED and must not rebel against them. We have proven it is the two witnesses who would be judging and bringing the light to Zion as Isa. 60: 1- 3 says. If we are giving GOD’s offerings and if He accept them from us, who are you to go against Him? You who do not know the words of JESUS CHRIST, must learn from Him…. Zep 3: 10-15, Mal 1: 11, Isa. 43: 12- 22, Isa. 56, Isa. 14: 30, Eze 39: 21- 23, Mic 5: 5- 7 , 2: 10-12, Gen. 49: 10-12, Eze 16: 40, 23: 42- 49, Rom 2: 27, etc. The spiritual leaders should teach the TRUTH to the people.
Here’s more. When GOD’s righteousness and salvation is to come to Zion, it is GOD’s HANDS which shall judge them…. they are in the coastlands, the islands…. And they are in ‘TARSHISH”… that is in the east, sri lanka …. They only have silver and gold and precious stones , which even king Solomon brought to build the temple. Isa. 2 is for now. As written above , Isa. 1: 25 and
Isa 51:5 My righteousness is near; My salvation went out; and My arms shall judge peoples; coastlands shall wait on Me, and they shall hope on My arm.
Isa 60:9 For the coastlands shall wait for Me, and the ships of Tarshish at the first, to bring your sons from far away, their silver and their gold to them, to the name of Jehovah your God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because He has glorified you. …}}}.. they come when the Holy “ONE” not ‘TWO” gods, but the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD who is JESUS CHRIST is to glorify Zion. (Glorify means to know and understand about GOD… Jer 9:24). So when Zion is to know her GOD, it is the Gentiles who have GOD’s hand.
Eze 39:21 And I will set My glory among the Gentiles , and all the Gentiles shall see My judgment that I have executed, and My hand that I have laid upon them. …}}}… When GOD executes judgments on Zion, He shows it to Gentiles. This is why we write like this… unless you understand and see this, you cannot know the LORD of glory… At this time GOD’s HAND is on us. “My glory among the Gentiles” means to know and understand the real GOD is given to Gentiles . It is we who will say to the cities of Judah to behold her GOD. (remember ‘cities of Judah’ are the worshipers Jer 26:2). So this is not talking about the cities in Israel as GF teaches. This happens when GOD JUDGES Zion. These are the RESTORED JUDGES as written above .
Eze 39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward. …}}}… “KNOW I am” ?? as ‘glory’ means to know and understand … and “My glory” means to know and understand the LORD , is revealed in judgments to the judges, so they will declare it in Zion… this is why this verse says “they shall KNOW that I AM… or JESUS CHRIST is the LORD.
You see… it is AFTER GOD GIVE THE UNDERSTANDING AND TO KNOW HIM to the Gentiles, AND THE JUDGMENTS OF Israel IS BEING FULFILLED ONLY, THEY WILL KNOW THE REAL GOD. This is why it says the ‘LORD shall be exalted in Judgment”. Is 5: 16 . Isa. 2: 17… “And the pride of man shall be humbled; and the loftiness of men shall be abased; and Jehovah alone will be exalted in that day”. … remember as a part of GOD’s wrath, GOD allowed the leaders to exalt themselves ( Dan 11: 36, Mal 3: 15) but now, as they are judged , exposed and humbled, only GOD will be exalted.
Also read Jer 31: 9-10, the rivers of waters overflowing come from Gentiles… Isa. 66:12, Ps 9:16). Executed by strangers (Eze 7:21; 11:9; 30:12). By Tarshish (Isa 22:9-11, Dt 28:29-30). Their work is to execute judgments (Ez 23: 45-49, 16:40, To tread down Lam 1:15, Isa. 26: 6) to witness (Rev 11: 2, Isa. 43: 6- 12 ), to accuse Jews of being “evildoers” (1 Pet 2: 12) and to tread down the Inner court (Rev 3:2; Mal 4:3; Ps 108:18. But now the righteousness of God “without the law” is manifested (Rom 3:21). This is how the Gentiles are made righteous… by JESUS CHRIST’s mercy and grace. Jer 33:15 -‘In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David A Branch of righteousness; He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth….. these are the restored judges. The weak, the poor and the feeble proven in this writing.
GOD’s definition of ‘righteousness’ means if you have no other gods as PROVEN…. ( Eze 18: 6, 15). The saints ( who are forgiven as PROVEN) will shout for joy, when the priests being clothed with righteousness… ( Psa 132: 9). And v 16 says GOD will clothe the priests with salvation. ( means to save from false teachings).
Same article ;…“After we repent and get baptized and receive the Holy Spirit, we ought not to let sin reign in our bodies. Living a new life means a life of overcoming sin by yielding ourselves to GOD. ”…}}}… new life is in the words of JESUS CHRIST as JOh 6:63 says the words of JESUS CHRIST gives life. This is why the new wine or all things are made new in JESUS CHRIST during the "Times of Refreshing". Until then no one has become righteous and this is why the Laodicean era is spiritually dead. Not even the writer could overcome as long as he does not believe in JESUS CHRIST.
Same article ;… “We are under the Law. When we are transgressing against it…. we are under the penalty of the Law – death.”…}}}… This is why GOD says man is once appointed to die as no one could keep the Law. but GOD killed them knowing that ; then they would seek Him.
Psa 78:34 When He killed them, then they sought Him; and they turned and searched for God. …}}}… So the Laodicean era had to come just as it is written and all had to die not knowing the true GOD who is JESUS CHRIST. When they turn to Him only, their veil will be taken away and they will know the GOD whom they stumbled upon Is the ONLY ONE TRUE GOD…
Same article ;…“Today, if we repent and become converted through Holy Spirit, we are not under the penalty of the law, but under grace, because of CHRIST ’s sacrifice.”…. }}}… If we can repent and be converted, we do not need grace at all as then we can live eternally. You do not even know that you have to repent for rejecting JESUS CHRIST. Even king David knew that he is under grace.. If we can be converted ourselves, then we do NOT NEED CHRIST ’S SACRIFICE in the first place. Knowing that man is once appointed to die, as being unable to keep the Law, GOD sent His own body as the Son to die and shed blood.
GOD knew that NO ONE could repent and be converted. Even the JUDGES HAD TO BE RESTORED. This is how the leaders are exalting themselves unknowingly. GOD knew that no one can be converted even having Holy Spirit. King David knew this. He prophesied that his people would be enemies of GOD and the Gentiles will serve him. ( Psa 18: 43- 45).
Satan lied in the beginning saying if you eat of the tree of good and evil , you can be AS GOD. Gen. 3:5, 22. When the man sinned and came to know good and evil, GOD cut him off from good… or from the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is JESUS CHRIST , truth and that is the knowledge about GODHEAD. In other words the man is cut off from knowing the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD. (stumbled on JESUS CHRIST , but Gentiles are prophesied to be built on Him Eph 2:12, when the "Times of Gentiles" comes). Therefore, SF’s article shows that he thinks ; that he can be converted with Holy Spirit, and will not be under the penalty. Besides, the outward sign of having Holy Spirit is having the words of JESUS CHRIST as JOh 6: 63 says , which is given when JESUS CHRIST came the second time… (Isa. 11: 9-11).
We know JESUS CHRIST cannot lie. He said that one day His people would NOT WORSHIP GOD IN Spirit AND IN TRUTH. That is the Laodicean era . One cannot worship GOD in Spirit if they do not keep the words of JESUS CHRIST , which are spirit . IF GOD HAS NOT GIVEN THE Spirit OR TRUTH , HOW COULD THEY WORSHIP BY THEM ?? To give the Spirit and truth is done IN JUDGMENT. One cannot worship in truth as the truth about the true GOD is given when He comes the second time.
The outward sign of having Everlasting life is the knowledge about the GODHEAD ( JOh 17: 3). That knowledge , the mystery of GOD is given during the judgments in Rev 10:7. If HWA wrote it, then all should have Everlasting life by now. So how could HWA know that mystery in 1985? He did not preach the everlasting gospel which is in Rev 14:6-7. That is the Tree of Life which gives Everlasting life. He preached the gospel to repent which he, himself failed. So, no one can be converted until the Holy Spirit, the words are given.
Grace which gives us life, was not needed until the end of the age, when the judgments came. To end transgression, the 70 year prophecy had to be fulfilled , the work of error in Babylon (Mic 4: 10) and then the prophesied end came. (Jer 51:13.. the harlot who sits in many waters…, and the end came in Ezekiel’s time. Eze 7:2, 6, 21:25, Amo 8:2, ). The prophesied end is the Laodicean era. They will be made naked spiritually and then given white linen once again. The wife had to make herself ready and the white linen had to be GRANTED.
Same article ;… “CHRIST ’s life in us through the power of the Spirit can save us”… }}}… all Israel is to stumble upon Him. Anyone who teaches and believes there are TWO gods, do not believe in CHRIST . If you do not believe you have no life. No truth in you and no CHRIST . He abides in us through the words. If the words needed to Everlasting life was not given, then how could CHRIST live in us through the Spirit which are CHRIST ’s words ??? He condemned all Israel for not believing in Him.
Joh 6:29 Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that you believe into Him whom that One sent.
Joh 6:32 Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Moses has not given you the bread out of Heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread out of Heaven.
Joh 6:33 For the bread of God is He coming down out of Heaven and giving life to the world.
Joh 6:35 Jesus said to them, I am the Bread of life; the one coming to Me will not at all hunger, and the one believing into Me will not thirst, never! …}}}… One believing in to Me will not thirst… but GOD says, He killed the prophets by the words. (Hos 6:5… I have slain them by the Words of My mouth.)… then again He says;
(Hos 2:3 that I not strip her naked and set her out as in the day that she was born, and make her as the wilderness, and place her like a dry land, and kill her with thirst. …}}}… who is naked if not the Laodicean era ??? And in the wilderness spiritually ??? and that is who is killed with thirst. That means they have not believing in to JESUS CHRIST… (believing into Me will not thirst. But out of the BELIEVER’S bellies the living waters shall flow. ). So you now see… JESUS CHRIST’s words , withdrawn from the prophets, and they are killed by the thirst. This is why on the "Day of Visitation" , the prophet is a fool … ( Hos 9:7). So “killing by thirst means” they have not BELIEVED IN TO JESUS CHRIST. If you do not have the Spirit, you cannot call JESUS CHRIST , THE LORD… The Gentiles are given the blessings of Abraham through the Spirit (words of JESUS CHRIST ) through faith… Gal 3: 14
Same article… “That the righteousness of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who walkd not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”… }}}…. All Israel are flesh. ( 1Co 10:18). It is the children who are flesh and blood ( Heb 2:14). The last high priest, Ezekiel failed in all three lusts. ( Eze 24: 21). So who is given the Spirit which are the words of JESUS CHRIST? It is the Gentiles who walk after the Spirit…
Heb 2:14 Since, then, the children have partaken of flesh and blood, in like manner He Himself also shared the same things, that through death He might cause to cease the one having the power of death, that is, the devil; ..}}}…. Only JESUS CHRIST Has power over the devil. Even He Had to die. His body too is appointed to die once. He alone can overcome and pay the penalty for death. Because the children who are Israel, (including all humans ) are flesh and blood… He became flesh and blood ….. to free them from death penalty. The penalty is for transgressing the Law which NO HUMAN, EVEN WITH GOD’S Holy Spirit COULD OVERCOME. WHEN YOU SIN, GOD CANNOT DWELL. Men are flesh and blood… Ezekiel proved so by failing in all three lusts ( Eze 24: 21) The man, made out of DUST , physical, has no power; ever to do what JESUS CHRIST Did. (The Tree of Life is cut off from man means the life is cut off, UNTIL THE SECOND Adam CAME. )That is to over come the power of the devil and the lusts of the flesh. If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves.
1Jn 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. …}}}… SF’s article says, in pg 16…. “we do not obtain salvation through the Law – we observe the Law through the process of conversion”. …. No one could observe the Law through the process of CONVERSION… because GOD SIMPLY HAS NOT GIVEN US THE ABILITY TO OBSERVE THE Law AND BECOME CONVERTED. ( as written above , the laws were given which Israel could not keep ) BECAUSE…. ALL Israel… AND NO ONE WAS EVER GIVEN THE Everlasting life… WHICH IS THE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD UNTIL Rev 10:7 IS FULFILLED. THAT IS AFTER THE JUDGMENTS OF THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE CONVERTED BY OBSERVING THE Law.
What is ‘salvation’ and Everlasting life ??? The ‘salivation’ is to save us from false teachings, specially about GODHEAD. And what is Everlasting life?... The outward sign which shows if we have Everlasting life in us, is the knowledge about the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD, who is JESUS CHRIST. ( Joh 17:3).
Joh 17:2 as You gave to Him authority over all flesh, so that to all which You gave to Him, He may give to them everlasting life. …}}}… “All flesh” and who are ‘GIVEN TO HIM’ are two kinds of people. JESUS CHRIST took authority over all flesh who are Israel, in judgment only. And those who are appointed to have Everlasting life, are the Gentiles to whom the knowledge about the true GOD is given , giving them the Everlasting life. ( Act 28: 28, 13: 38- 47) Until then they are allowed to go free as a part of GOD’s wrath as PROVEN above. So at this time, when the judgments came, those who obeyed JESUS CHRIST are given Everlasting life…..
Joh 17:3 And this is everlasting life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.
Joh 17:4 I have glorified You on the earth. I finished the work that You gave Me to do. …}}}… This is the FINISHING WORK… to give Everlasting life… this is why the mystery of GOD is revealed only AFTER the judgments in Rev 10:7. It says the mystery is finished at that time.
HWA was dead and gone by 1985. so how could he be revealed this mystery which is the FINISHING works which is revealed in Rev 10:7,. During the judgments. ??? This is the time GOD comes down and will be a Light to the whole world as He Has totally conquered the devil and the power of the devil which causes all to die . Thereafter , the penalty for the children’s sins which is done by flesh and blood is paid. This is the time all could know the Everlasting Father who Is JESUS CHRIST… ( Isa. 9:6). He took the authority over all flesh which could not observe the Law nor could be converted
Everlasting life is a FREE GIFT to the sinners. GOD Has already planned to blot out Zion’s sins even from the beginning. The enmity between the flesh and blood and Holy Spirit is taken away by JESUS CHRIST’s sacrifice once again which His true body of believers paid when He introduced the New and Living way. The veil in Israel still remains. The splitting of the veil has to be fulfilled spiritually now as the penalty is already paid by the Body of CHRIST spiritually. This is why GOD is making SF and PCG know that His grace is available now. The trial is over… the judgment is given. All are spiritually dead and were judged. The only way to get Everlasting life is to know and understand the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD, who is JESUS CHRIST. Israel knew God The Father… the Spirit of JESUS CHRIST.
Heb 10:20 which He consecrated for us, a new and living way through the veil; that is, His flesh;
(Please read: A New and Living way through CHRIST ’s flesh
GOD gives us a outward sign which we can be sure of having Everlasting life….
1Jn 5:11 And this is the witness: that God gave us everlasting life, and this life is in His Son.
1Jn 5:12 The one having the Son has life. The one not having the Son of God does not have life. …}}}… those who have JESUS CHRIST living in them has life…. they are the ones who know and understand that JESUS CHRIST IS ONLY THE ONE TRUE GOD. His sheep heard His voice. They are the appointed Gentiles who are saved because of His grace and mercy. You do not exalt JESUS CHRIST to be gathered. This is why all 12 tribes are scattered ( Jam 1: 1).
1Jn 5:13 I wrote these things to you, the ones believing in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have everlasting life, and that you may believe in the name of the Son of God….}}}… we know we have Everlasting life… because we believe in Him. The Gentiles are appointed even from the beginning to believe JESUS CHRIST. We are His ministry, the letter. Read the “Tree of Life” and the “Image of GOD” in our web and prove. We died for Him and are RISEN. ( Colos 3: 1-4). But you need to rise and the Gentiles come to your RISING… (Isa. 60:3).
1Jn 5:20 And we know that the Son of God Has come, and He Has given to us an understanding that we may know the true One, and we are in the true One, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and the life everlasting.
1Jn 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
1Jn 5:21 Little children,…}}}…. We are the SPIRITUAL little children… and JESUS CHRIST came to us ( Colos 1: 27, Isa. 11: 9-11)
Joh 9:41 Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin. But now you say, We see; therefore, your sin remains. ..}}}… Do you see why Gerald Flurry and all in PCG are sinners ?? It is because they think they know more than anyone in other churches , and they judge others, but they do not know themselves. “If you were blind ..no sin”…. This is why the Gentiles are blameless… they were blind as they were not given the Law. Because you say ‘WE SEE”… your sin remains .. and you are UNCONVERTED.. and this is why you need GRACE. It is GOD’s goodness and mercy which even cause you to repent and why He restored the judges to tell you these things.
Same article ;… “Living under grace means living according to GOD’s Spirit in humble obedience to His laws. By living a life without sin, JESUS CHRIST set for us an ecample which we are to follow. (1 Pet 2: 21-22). Are you willing to follow in that expamle – to strive diligently to keep and obey GOD’s every command? That is the only way we will ever truly be under GOD’s grace”. ..}}}…SF says, we must live a life WITHOUT sin, just like JESUS CHRIST. Do you think in this life we can follow the example of JESUS CHRIST and live without sin no matter how much we strive to ? If we can live without sin as we are in this human bodies, why do we need grace in the first place ??? GOD says as written above , that He Has given laws which could NOT BE KEPT. So who are you to teach others that you can keep the Law and obey ??? Do you not exalt yourselves above GOD’s words ??? Your sins remain… GOD cannot lie…
SF was baptized in PCG and he is an evangelist. I would like to ask him ; “Do you Stephen Flurry…; are you WITHOUT SIN, just like JESUS CHRIST ??? After all, …you have been a baptized, repented and a Spirit led person and obeying the Law since you are teaching others ? Just simply answer…. “Yes or No”???
JESUS CHRIST DIED because this is NEVER POSSIBLE FOR A MAN. If we can follow and obey GOD’s Law as we are, then we do not need CHRIST ’s sacrifice… He did not have to go through that horrible death in the first place. GOD knows better than you; that the man made out of dust COULD NEVER follow the example of JESUS CHRIST and obey the Law. The Gentiles are to lick your dust to clean you. Licking the dust means get rid of every little bit of your poison. This is why the man is APPOINTED TO DIE ONCE AS YOUR SIN REMAINS.
This is why GOD pours His grace…. ONLY … ONLY… ONLY after this appointed death of man. This is why all Israel is scattered now and are spiritually dead. The Law is given through Moses… but when his work fails, the grace and truth will be brought by JESUS CHRIST. ( Joh 1:17). Then all will be saved…
The Gentiles are APPOINTED TO NOT TO DIE AS THEY WERE NOT UNDER THE Law and this is why they died spiritually (GOD allow them to be killed spiritually by the hand of the man of sin who is GF ) and are ALIVE WITH JESUS CHRIST as PROVEN. read Colos 1:27, 2 Thes 2: 13 ( many are appointed to Everlasting life Act 13 ).
That was the plan of redemption which GOD Has written in the Scripture, which none of the rulers would want to understand …. You are APPOINTED to NOT TO KNOW THE LORD OF GLORY TILL YOU DIE. If you know Him, then you have Everlasting life.
The Gentiles are dead with CHRIST and have RISEN ALREADY. Remember in Isa. 60:3… you still need to RISE ??? and we come to your light for your RISING ???
Col 3:1 If, then, you were raised with Christ, seek the things above, where Christ is sitting at the right of God;
Col 3:2 mind the things above, not the things on the earth.
Col 3:3 For you died, and your life has been hidden with Christ in God.
Col 3:4 Whenever Christ our life is revealed, then also you will be revealed with Him in glory…..
Col 3:5 Then put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil lust, and covetousness, which is idolatry; …}}}… these sins are being committed by Israel. this is why they are not accepted and we are to not to commit them.
Col 3:6 on account of which things the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience, ..}}}… as PROVEN above, it is the CHILDREN who are flesh and blood…the DISOBEDIENCE…
Col 3:7 among whom you also walked at one time, when you were living in these. …}}}… we certainly was in WCG and PCG. but both churches spiritually killed us… this is why we have the glory of the LORD to know and understand Him…
Col 3:10 and having put on the new, having been renewed in full knowledge according to the image of the One creating him, …}}}… we have become a new creature in CHRIST . He Is the Creator… we have already put on the new… as we are given the full knowledge… and are made in His own image. We have eaten of the Tree of Life now. We became new when JESUS CHRIST came to give us light as Isa. 42 says.
Col 3:11 where there is no Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision,…}}}… When we are to become new, no Israel or Gentiles…. all are to be ONE IN JESUS CHRIST… do you see this prophecy is fulfilled now ?? As GOD prophesied in Isa. 1, the judges are restored in the full knowledge…
Col 2:9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
Col 2:10 and having been filled, you are in Him, who is the Head of all rule and authority,…}}}… when He came the second time, He Is given all rule and authority as written above ….and we are in Him.
Col 2:11 in whom also you were circumcised with a circumcision not made by hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,..}}}.. SF says he can live by being obedient to the Law after being baptized. But our baptism is made NOT BY HANDS… it came from JESUS CHRIST. We have put off the body of sins… Your sin still remains as you lie and say that you SEE….
Col 2:12 being buried with Him in baptism, in whom also you were raised through the faith of the working of God, raising Him from among the dead. …}}}.. we are already restored… it is a working of GOD… that is to believe in the Son as written above … Joh 6:29..” This is the work of God, that you believe into Him whom that One sent…. This is why the work of GOD finishes when the MYSTERY OF GOD is revealed in judgments (Rev 10:7) and when the everlasting gospel is preached to worship the Creator.. We are restored, made in to the image of the Creator and only we can preach this everlasting gospel in Rev 14: 6- 7. When Israel’s eyes are opened to know and understand JESUS CHRIST, then all work of GOD will be finished. This is why JESUS CHRIST said ‘I have finished the work” in JOh 17… as that is the time to reveal the truth about the Father and the Son, that they are the same GOD… Spirit and the physical.
Col 2:13 And you, being dead in the deviations and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all the deviations, …}}}… we being DEAD in our sins… but because of grace, He forgave us. This is the same way the DEAD Israel also will be brought back to life.
Col 2:14 blotting out the handwriting in the ordinances against us, which was contrary to us, even He has taken it out of the midst, nailing it to the cross;
Col 2:15 having stripped the rulers and the authorities, He made a show of them in public, triumphing over them in it. }}… Stripped the rulers… that is during the Laodicean era. As we are fully clothed, we are to give spiritual clothes to the naked Laodiceans .
Col 1:26 the mystery having been hidden from the ages and from the generations, but now was revealed to His saints; …}}}.. after FORGIVING US, AND CAUSING US TO BE ALIVE WITH JESUS CHRIST, HE COULD DWELL IN US SO HE GAVE THE MYSTERY OF GOD TO US…
Col 1:27 to whom God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles , who is Christ in you, the hope of glory; …}}}… The hope of glory… to know and understand the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD, is given to the Gentiles, as it was the WILL OF GOD. So can you change the written and spoken words of our LORD JESUS CHRIST ??
Act 13: 42 onwards says “after the Jews gone, the Gentiles wanted to hear… and the Jews were jealous… and contradicted the things spoken by Apostle Paul. It is same today. What SF has written in contradicting to Apostle Paul’s teachings. This is also the time for Apostle Paul’s work to be fulfilled. it is all done by grace of GOD. This is the time all spiritual Israel will see that GOD Has saved the Gentiles and given Everlasting life… and be jealous as the early Jews were in v 45.
Act 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. }}}… You judged yourselves unworthy to have Everlasting life. That is to know and understand the true GOD, JESUS CHRIST. They are to stumble on Him. The Chief Cornerstone . So WE RECEIVED THAT HONOR OF KNOWING THE EVERLASTING FATHER…
Act 13:47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
Act 13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. …}}}… the Gentiles are ORDAINED to Everlasting life… BECAUSE IT WAS GOD’S WILL AS WRITTEN ABOVE ….. they are appointed to be revealed the truth about the GODHEAD, which means to have Everlasting life as JOh 17: 3 and as written above …. But Israel are, as they are under the Law, having failed to obey wholly, are to DIE once… and then all will be saved as written above …. When they were killed only they will seek GOD as prophesied in the Scripture, which cannot be broken. The first lump is made Holy so the rest of it will be…. Rom 9: 21, 11: 16.
Act 15:7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
Act 15:8 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;
Act 15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
Act 15:11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.
Act 15:12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them. …}}}… JESUS CHRIST, purified our hearts as He knew that we would believe because we are APPOINTED TO BE SO… so all Israel will be saved even as we are saved. We have to be saved or restored first. That means we should have the Holy Spirit, the words of JESUS CHRIST first… this is agreed with Apostle Paul’s teachings in Rom 11. Israel is broken off and the Gentiles are grafted just as Jacob prophesied in Gen. 49: 10-12. GOD rejected Israel hoping to bring them back.
Pg 16… “We only deserve death. But make no mistake. If we are not willing to change our lives and serve righteousness through the Spirit, GOD will never extend His grace to us”. …}}}…as a human being and specially flesh and blood, NO ONE can serve righteousness through the Spirit. WE ARE ALREADY SAVED … AND FORGIVEN… BUT STILL WE SIN. BUT WE HAVE GRACE, WHEN THE TIME COMES GOD WILL TURN OUR BODIES TO GLORIOUS BODIES WITH YOUR BODIES. You have to do your part … and BEWILLING to be gathered to JESUS CHRIST… This is why GOD’s house was desolated. But now, since you are dead spiritually, GOD’s goodness will cause you to repent . Then be willing to be gathered to JESUS CHRIST and not to God The Father… that is righteousness. Have no other gods other than The Most High, The Redeemer… read Rom 11. That is now fulfilled…
It is after the APPOINTED death that GOD will pour His mercy….
Jer 31:1 At that time, says Jehovah, I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people.
Jer 31:2 So says Jehovah, Israel, the people, the survivors of the sword, have found grace in the wilderness, I will go to give rest to him.
Jer 31:3 Jehovah has appeared to me from far away, saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love! On account of this, with loving kindness I have drawn you. …}}}… GOD comes from a far. When the New Temple is to be built He comes from the east gate. Read Eze 40-47. The living waters shall flow to the dead sea by the east gate… GOD Has come and we say ; He Has drawn you… He loves you and His love forever. Therefore ….
Jer 31:4 Again I will build you, and you shall be built again, O virgin of Israel….}}}… When would this be ??? previous chapter last verse says “The glow of Jehovah's anger will not turn back until He has executed, and until He has established the purposes of His heart. In latter days you will understand it”… So the latter days, AFTER GOD POURS HIS WRATH,… after they are sent to wilderness, after the beasts did their beastly deeds to fulfill the purpose of GOD, ( Rev 17: 17) , He will pour grace, AS THAT IS THE TIME they NEED GRACE. GOD Does not give grace before that so that we could live by the Law and be obedient. The man is to return to dust. Man has to be given a NEW HEART to KNOW the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD .. Then only you can obey Him and you would follow Him and the Law. As Joel said, the Spirit is poured on the LAST DAYS. This is why Apostle Peter wrote to Gentiles that they have a LAST TIME salvation… 1 Pet 1: 5, 20).
And according to these verses above, GOD’s mercy comes when GOD IS READY TO BUILD YOU “AGAIN”… . That is after your spiritual death. This is why the Scripture says when GOD killed them, then they sought for Him… ( Psa 78. Read the whole chapter…. It is for now. They forgot their ONLY GOD… THE ROCK… THE MOST HIGH, THE REDEEMER… ). If they did not know the Redeemer, they did not know JESUS CHRIST as they are appointed to not to know Him. Therefore, they cannot have Everlasting life, as that means to know the GODHEAD as written above . so they had to die….
Then GOD Had to FORGIVE after the death.
Mic 7:18 Who is a God like You, forgiving iniquity and passing by the transgression of the remnant of His possession? He does not make strong His anger forever, for He delights in grace.
Mic 7:19 He will return to pity us; He will subdue our iniquities. Yea, You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Zec 12:10 And I will pour on the house of David, and on those living in Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of prayers. And they shall look on Me whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they shall be bitter over Him, like the bitterness over the first-born. …}}}… this is not talking about CHRIST ’s first death, but the second death through His body of believers, those who died for Him. They are the ones in v 8… the weak and feeble who would be used to raise the Tabernacle of David …. Read the verses before …. Grace is poured after GOD punishes them…
Act 20:24 But I make account of nothing, nor do I hold my life precious to myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, fully to testify the gospel of the grace of God. …}}}… this is the everlasting gospel which is preached by us in Rev 14: 6- 7 which would give all Everlasting life… Receive salvation through grace and TRUTH and knowledge…. And believe in the Just ONE…
Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, having an everlasting gospel to proclaim to those dwelling on the earth, even to every nation and tribe and tongue and people,
Rev 14:7 saying in a great voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him, because the hour of His judgment has come; also, Worship "Him who has made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea," and the springs of waters. !!!
Or worship The “CREATOR”…. !!!
As PROVEN above, we are already made in the image of the Creator… and now you will be too.
In the same RV, R Fraser wrote about “Experience real joy”
pg 28 ….
“The wisest man who ever lived declared. “For GOD giveth a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge and joy” ( (Eccl 2:26).
Note the order of things here. The gift of joy follows the receiving of the wisdom and knowledge. In order to receive the gift of joy, it is first necessary to receive the revelation of GOD that imparts wisdom from on high and the knowledge of truth…}}}… This is true… you must receive the words of JESUS CHRIST to get that wisdom and knowledge. As PROVEN above, the Gentiles are risen with CHRIST in wisdom and full knowledge which need to be saved and have Everlasting life. That is the real joy. When the blinded eyes are opened all will be joyful.
It is through the gift of Holy Spirit that GOD’s called out ones receive the wisdom and knowledge of GOD. as JESUS CHRIST declared “Howbeit when (it) , the Spirit of truth is come, it will guide you in to all truth” Joh 16:13. “….}}}…Gift of Holy Spirit … the words of JESUS CHRIST are Spirit and life as written above . Remember JESUS CHRIST said “I AM the truth”?? And it is He who comes to redeem the second time and gives to Gentiles. So as the Spirit of truth, it is He who comes in the last days to teach the godly wisdom. (Heb 1:2, Colos 1:27, 2 Thes 2: 13, Isa. 11: 9-11 ).
Apostle Peter wrote this to Gentiles…
1 Pet 1: 12… To whom it was revealed that not to themselves, but to us they ministered the same things, which now were announced to you by those having preached the gospel to you in the Holy Spirit sent from Heaven; into which things angels long to look into
1Pe 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; …}}}… So as R Fraser wrote, the revelation is given to Gentiles. v 10 says the prophets sought out this grace to Gentiles. The Holy Spirit sent from heaven to us which , no others including the angels did not know as this is a last time event as v 5, and 20 says. This is why all knowledge and wisdom is given to us about JESUS CHRIST and have made us the ministry of CHRIST as PROVEN…
Same article ;… “remember Apostle Peter ’s admonition. “Beloved think it not a strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, in as much as ye are partakers of CHRIST ’s sufferings ; that , when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of CHRIST , happy are ye” 1 Pet 4: 12_ 14).”…}}}… This is not talking about just any trial, but partaking JESUS CHRIST’s sufferings. That is to die for Him. Then the glory of JESUS CHRIST shall be revealed… and that means receiving the wisdom and knowledge by grace. So the above Scripture in 1 Pet 1: 13 proves we get the revelation of JESUS CHRIST… and also Colos 1: 27 and 3: 1- 4 says we are DEAD and are RISEN with CHRIST . so we are the ones who partook the sufferings of CHRIST . ( 2 The 1:5)
Php 1:29 because it was granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer on His behalf,
(Remember Apostle Paul wrote all these to Gentiles )
Col 3:3 For you died, and your life has been hidden with Christ in God.
Col 3:4 Whenever Christ our life is revealed, then also you will be revealed with Him in glory…}}}.. “DYING” for JESUS CHRIST, is the fiery trial which we had to go through. Because we died, we are risen with Him.. (v 1- 2) and this is why JESUS CHRIST’s glory is revealed in us. We have real joy…
Isa 43:6 …Bring My sons from afar, and bring My daughters from the ends of the earth;
Isa 43:7 everyone who is called by My name, and I have created him for My glory; I have formed him; yea, I have made him….}}}… Israel surely do not know that JESUS CHRIST Has made us to be called on His name and we are created for His glory. Isa. 55: 5… when you are ready to be glorified, a nation which you do not know will come to you. This is how GOD Has planned. So here we are…
Isa 43:8 Bring out the blind people, yet there are eyes; and the deaf, yet there are ears to him.
Isa 43:9 Let all the nations be assembled, and let the peoples be gathered. Who among them can declare this and cause us to hear former things? Let them give their witnesses, that they may be justified. Or let them hear and say, It is true.
Isa 43:10 You are My witnesses, says Jehovah; and My servant whom I have elected; that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed; nor shall any be after Me.
Isa 43:11 I, I am Jehovah; and there is no Savior besides Me.
Isa 43:12 I declared, and I saved, and I proclaimed; and there is not an alien god among you. And you are My witnesses, says Jehovah, and I am God. …}}}… book of Revelation shows those who witness for GOD Had to die. They have to die for to get the revelation and the glory of JESUS CHRIST. We are created for JESUS CHRIST’s glory. (means to know and understand Him Jer 9: 24).
If you cannot give your witness to be justified then hear the truth. we know and believe JESUS CHRIST. the Gentiles are appointed to believe in JESUS CHRIST but Israel is to stumble upon Him.
“Before Me there was no God formed; nor shall any be after Me.”. … JESUS CHRIST said… I Am The First and The Last”… Then could there be any other god before or after Him ??? This is why we suffered death at your hand… but we shall be revealed with Him… “Whenever Christ our life is revealed, then also you will be revealed with Him in glory”…. Over and over we proved from the Scripture that the ‘Father ’ is an allegory. ( Joh 16: 25).
In these verses GOD says there are TWO kinds of people. “Bring out the blind people, yet there are eyes; and the deaf, yet there are ears to him”. .. who are made blind in the last days ?? Eze 12: 2 … and at the same time the Gentiles are proclaiming about JESUS CHRIST…
V 12… This One GOD, the First and the Last GOD says ‘we have NO OTHER GODS”… VS 21- 24 says He does not accept Israel’s offerings. So two kinds of people are explained here. The BLIND ones, (during the Laodicean era ) and the ones who witnesses about the ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD, who is JESUS CHRIST , and the First and the Last GOD…
Here is more from R Fraser… pg 28… “Pro 15: 30 … The light of the eyes rejoiceth the heart” … }}}…The light of the eyes, Israel do not have as they are blind to see JESUS CHRIST. But we have real joy because we know Him as that revelation is given to us.
Same article ;…“As JESUS CHRIST declared of the ministry that He gave the Apostle Paul the Holy Spirit will ‘open their eyes and to turn them from darkness to light” Act 26:18.”….}}}… Who is ‘their” … It is the Gentiles, to whom Apostle Paul is the apostle for. Apostle Paul is the apostle to Gentiles. He wrote all of his letters to Gentiles , including Colossians … read the previous verse to make sure who this ‘their’ mean …
Act 26:17 delivering you from the people and the nations, to whom I now send you
Act 26:18 in order to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light, and from the authority of Satan to God, so that they may receive remission of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me. …}}}… Delivering you from the Jews… and to the Gentiles GOD sends Apostle Paul to…. Turn them from darkness and give light… and from authority of satan to GOD… and to forgive them and they are sanctified by faith in JESUS CHRIST…. GOD, at this time showing the ministry of PCG the truth about Him, and the Gentiles. just as Colossians says as written above , when CHRIST our life shall be revealed, we too will be revealed with Him…. GOD Is showing all things about "Times of Refreshing", New Temple, joy, grace , living waters etc… but they still do not believe JESUS CHRIST, as He comes from the east… This is the same reason the Jews were offended including John the Baptist, and Apostle Peter as PROVEN.
Zech 12: 10….” And I will pour on the house of David, and on those living in Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace”. … }}}… Grace is needed when GOD Has killed them spiritually as psa 78 says. this happens very soon, as the judgments are over. GOD will open Israel’s minds all at once just as JESUS CHRIST did on the highway. CHRIST IS RISEN…. He IS AMONG THE Gentiles AND THEY ARE RISEN WITH HIM AS WRITTEN ABOVE . For that purpose He bound the foolish nation, which is pictured by the donkey which Judah is prophesied to bind in the end time. Whole chapter Gen. 49 is for last days. It will be fulfilled.
Israel’s hardened heart is revealed to Gentiles … they see their blindness and Israel cannot see as they are blind. Eze 39:21-13,
Rom 11:25 For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be wise within yourselves, that hardness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles comes in;
Rom 11:26 and so all Israel will be saved, even as it has been written, "The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob….}}}… This NEW Zion… the first born of the poor ( Isa. 14: 30)
Rom 11:27 And this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins."
The Law is given to Israel… and GOD knew no one could keep the Law even after baptism. Then they had to go to babylon , and then they will be delivered. ( Mic 4: 10). That is how GOD hardened them.
Isa 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is His name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall He be called.
This is the everlasting gospel we preach in Rev 14: 6-7….
Worship "Him who has made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea," and the springs of waters.!!!
Zep 3:20 In that time I will bring you, even in the time I gather you. For I will give you for a name and for a praise among all the peoples of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, says Jehovah.
May the words of JESUS CHRIST our LORD will be fulfilled as He Has purposed !!!
