What No One Can See

Understanding God Part 1-4  http://timeoftrouble.webs.com/index.htm

When we feel some words of God are not for us, that may be true, but we can only know for sure through possessing the fear of the Lord which understands God according to what He has given us depending on our efforts as instructed through these words. . .

“My child, learn what I teach you and never forget what I tell you to do. Listen to what is wise and try to understand it. Yes, beg for knowledge; plead for insight. Look for it as hard as you would for silver or some hidden treasure. If you do, you will know what it means to fear the Lord and you will succeed in learning about God.  It is the Lord who gives wisdom; from him come knowledge and understanding. (Proverbs 2:1-6)-(GNT)

 

If you have done as instructed while living in spiritual ways with no other life, you are good in the eyes of God, but when believers gain their understanding through themselves or the false teachings of man.

 

Warning Against Falling Away

We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are so slow to understand [hard of hearing; C spiritually]. By now you should be teachers, but you need someone to teach you again the ·first lessons [elementary truths; basic principles] of God’s ·message [revelation; oracles]. You still need ·the teaching that is like milk [L milk]. You are not ready for solid food. [L For] Anyone who lives on milk is still a baby and ·knows nothing about [or is unskilled/inexperienced with] ·right teaching [or the message about righteousness]. But solid food is for those who are ·grown up [mature]. They are mature enough […who through practice/exercise have trained their faculties/senses] to know the difference between good and evil. Hebrews 5:11-14 (EXB)

 

What follows is the same as in my hundreds of other writings which is no watered down milk or partial truth as taught by man, but only the meat we all must have before God can be understood.

Do you truly love our Lord God? And billions will answer yes.

How much love do you really have?

Enough to actually do through actions what THE WORD instructs all believers on earth?

Enough to actually believe EVERY WORD OF GOD we have all been commanded to live by?

Enough to put no confidence in man as THE WORD directs?

Enough to prove all things through faith while using the WORDS OF GOD as your only source of information?

Enough to believe and totally accept WORDS OF GOD very few others believe?

Following is an excerpt taken from the preface of my fully published book “Message for this Entire Human Race”.

What’s most important for me to speak right now at the beginning of this book is that I expect to change but few while knowing that at this time few will believe all the facts which have been written for the purpose of only helping all people everywhere with a very strong warning of what will be. Yet whatever all may think, all that I ask is for all who purchase this book to just treat it as something that one day will be greatly needed as the only answer to all the whys regarding this world’s civilization coming to an unexpected end in ways so dark with so much evil that there are no exact words for description beyond what has been written all through this book for all on earth to read and understand’.

Because most all religious teachers in this world today truly believe in themselves while omitting any words of God which demean their self-righteous efforts; all that is taught to anyone is what the psychological powers distributed by the god of this world as the father of lies allows with this civilization of believers being the most misled of all humans on this planet; and the reason is because they don’t believe every word of who they all claim belief in.

“To you, who were spiritually dead all the time that you drifted along on the stream of this world’s ideas of living, and obeyed its unseen ruler (who is still operating in those who do not respond to the truth of God), to you Christ has given life! We all lived like that in the past, and followed the impulses and imaginations of our evil nature, being in fact under the wrath of God by nature, like everyone else. (Ephesians 2:1-3)-(Phillips)

The time has come for all on this earth who say that they believe in God to take a very close look at these words from the verse you just read which say -- (who is still operating in those who do not respond to the truth of God)

Do you as an individual feel that because you have been saved and forgiven with only eternal life ahead of you once the falsely taught rapture has taken place that you have full security and need no more?

Do you feel that salvation with belief in God the Father and acceptance of Christ in your heart as the Son of God and your Savior is all that’s required?

All the words in the Bible have been written as a book of history and current instruction for our life intended for all believers to not just read, but to diligently seek understanding of because it’s the only way that we can gain the fear of the Lord which is understanding of God. So when THE WORD gives us spiritual direction, we are to follow our instruction through faith without question or doubt.

“You should be looking at yourselves to make sure that you are really Christ’s. It is yourselves that you should be testing, not me. You ought to know by this time that Christ is in you, unless you are not real Christians at all. And when you have applied your test, I am confident that you will soon find that I myself am a genuine Christian. I pray God that you may find the right answer to your test, not because I have any need of your approval, but because I earnestly want you to find the right answer, even if that should make me no real Christian. For, after all, we can make no progress against the truth; we can only work for the truth. (2 Corinthians 13:5-8)-(Phillips)

Through over two decades what I have learned most through all believers are these following words of God’s truth which I have never questioned. . .

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Hebrews 5:8-9)-(Phillips)

But with these additional words of God which are spiritually unknown to all believers. . .

“Christ, in the days when he was a man on earth, appealed to the one who could save him from death in desperate prayer and the agony of tears. His prayers were heard; he was freed from his shrinking from death but, Son though he was, he had to prove the meaning of obedience through all that he suffered. Then, when he had been proved the perfect Son, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who should obey him, being now recognized by God himself as High Priest “after the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 5:7-10)-(Phillips)

. . .because they have never been taught God’s own pure words of truth regarding the difference between salvation and eternal salvation which can only come through full obedience which are strenuous non-stop works of righteousness through faith with obedience; and for this world of disobedient unknowing individuals, eventually in God’s time, full obedience will come to all the inhabitants of this earth through God’s punishment . . .

“The Lord is going to devastate the earth and leave it desolate. He will twist the earth's surface and scatter its people. Everyone will meet the same fate—the priests and the people, slaves and masters, buyers and sellers, lenders and borrowers, rich and poor. The earth will lie shattered and ruined. The Lord has spoken and it will be done. (Isaiah 24:1-3)-(GNT)

". . .for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. (Isaiah 26:9b)-(KJV)  [sound like a rapture?]

. . . which will bring the results of these following words of God never taught with their proper meaning.

 “I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. And so, in honor of the name of Jesus all beings in heaven, on earth, and in the world below will fall on their knees, and all will openly proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Isaiah 45:23, Philippians
2:10-11)

What greatly saddens me most is the fact that believers believe people and themselves rather than looking to only God for direction through trust with obedience which brings direction and answers in ways we may not always understand or even know because our thoughts are not His thoughts.

“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:7-9)-(KJV)

What is God’s mercy?

“For he said to Moses, “I will have mercy on anyone I wish; I will take pity on anyone I wish.” So then, everything depends, not on what we humans want or do, but only on God's mercy. For the scripture says to the king of Egypt, “I made you king in order to use you to show my power and to spread my fame over the whole world.” So then, God has mercy on anyone he wishes, and he makes stubborn anyone he wishes. (Romans 9:15-18)-(GNT)

However, even when we don’t fully understand all that God is doing with our life, it’s through our ‘obedience with strong and unwavering faith’ we know that God is with us and has a purpose through using us as His tools to benefit any who choose truth through His own words over the false partial teachings of man worldwide that God warns all against, but because man teaches no full truth, none, no, not one believer even knows what pure truth is; and that is because all teachers and shepherds on earth are led through the psychological powers of darkness by the god of this world; and what I just spoke comes through God’s own words a world of believers refuse to believe because man whom they do believe speaks nothing or a different meaning saying its out of context when its them who know not God through His Spirit.

In all that I write, what I speak comes through faith because I look only to God while being in wait for His lead; and it’s because by myself I can do nothing other than strain my brain nonstop for words while never gaining any proper ground day after day; therefore through years of trying I have learned well to just stop with absolutely no effort until directed --- But when God is ready, He leads me into writing as a steady flow without thought problems because He is at the controls with me being only the co-pilot who follows all spiritual orders as spiritually instructed.

Because we are all human beings, we have our built in mechanism of self-defense which comes from our pride that refuses to admit error; and what follows are these extremely important words from our Lord as a perfect example of what this entire world of believers just refuse to believe.

“The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. (Psalms 14:2-3, 53:2-3)-(KJV)

For anyone on this planet that truly believes in God with enough love to actually feel the spiritual need to please the Father just as our Lord Christ, what we all must do rather than doubting, questioning or excusing ourselves from His own words directly to us all on earth is without choice speaking our own words through heartfelt prayer to our Father of eternity who knows all things including our hearts intent better than we ourselves know; in other words it must be our heart speaking and not our lips. . .

‘Heavenly Father, I come to you through THE WORD being my Lord Jesus Christ; and because of my trust in you through genuine faith, that without, you cannot be pleased, I believe your every word; therefore according to much teaching throughout the entire Bible which you speak in truth, you are not pleased with my beliefs nor my actions which are unwritten pagan ways, pagan holidays, pagan beliefs and being disobedience to you because I do not as instructed along with believing only what man teaches or what I myself choose through totally ignoring these following words which all true believers being the church as the body of Christ and not a building of man where Satan’s home is as written in Revelation 2:13 must listen to and live by through spiritual correction which brings obedience. . .

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? (Luke 6:46)-(KJV)

 So now, Oh Lord God, I shall just do as you direct through your own words. . .

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)-(KJV)

. . .which instruct me put no trust in myself nor man while always acknowledging you so that you will direct my paths and strengthen me as my needed preparation for standing strong through the greatest timesoftrouble which have ever before come upon this entire world’s civilization -- and I thank you my Lord for hearing my prayer as written in my hearts intent with no other gods before you--amen’.

What you just read was but one example of a thousand prayers that I give to God because I know that without God’s help there is no way for me to endure what is coming upon us all; and to stand strong such as Daniel in the lion’s den, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego facing the fiery furnace, Job who lost everything and Paul who was beaten, lashed and stoned – we must have faith so powerful that we trust and believe only God through all of our suffering which lies ahead to make us worthy of His kingdom and the firstfruit resurrection at the last trumpet; but sadly most all believers on this earth will not believe what God speaks nor do as He directs; and the reasons why are shown within this following excerpt from my published book.

‘Have you ever tried to tell an animal that it was stupid while getting a solid result for what you spoke? Well, trying to tell the people of this world that their ship is sinking with only lifeboats for the few on the right road is no different; and that’s because humans just don’t know there is but only one proper action that all the people of this world need to take; and it requires steps the in the human mind set or pattern that none, no, not one person has because the minds of all people everywhere in this world only know self with self-thought, self-direction, self-want, self-understanding, self-dreams, self -needs, self-education and self-reality with everything in life being self-centered including the mechanism of mental self-defense that always clears self of anything that points all around one’s self in any wrong way’.

The only way possible for understanding God must come through direct communication with THE FATHER just as our HEAD JESUS CHRIST left us with an example we as believers are all to follow.

"Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. (John 8:28-29)-(KJV) 

The only true CHURCH OF GOD is the BODY OF CHRIST who follows their HEAD whom is THE WORD; and the actual following of our LORD is no simple uplifting experience as all have been taught, but rather a consistent non-stop effort in only becoming fully dependent on THE FATHER while wanting to always please Him just as our LORD JESUS CHRIST; and great faith is required as the only way for spiritual preparation to deal with all of the great afflictions coming upon us all within this human race.

“These qualities show how justly the judgment of God works out in your case. Without doubt he intends to use your suffering to make you worthy of his kingdom, yet his justice will one day repay trouble to those who have troubled you, and peace to all of us who, like you, have suffered.

This judgment will issue eventually in the final denouement of Christ’s personal coming from Heaven with the angels of his power. It will bring full justice in dazzling flame upon those who have refused to know God or to obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Their punishment will be ‘eternal exclusion’ from the radiance of the face of the Lord, and the glorious majesty of power. But to those whom he has made holy his coming will mean splendor unimaginable. It will be a breath-taking wonder to all who believe—including you, for you have believed the message that we have given you.

In view of this great prospect, we pray for you constantly, that God will think you worthy of this calling, and that he will effect in you all his goodness desires to do, and that your faith makes possible. We pray that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may become more glorious through you, and that you may share something of his glory—all through the grace of our God and Jesus Christ the Lord.  (2 Thessalonians 1:5-12)-(J.B.Phillips)

I marked ‘eternal exclusion’ for the purpose of sharing exactly what it means. It’s not an eternal barbeque of torture in flaming hell for the young, old, male and female which does not even exist as most all believers have been falsely led in believing because our Father who is a God of love is not in the business of eternal torture; and my book Message for this Entire Human Race has an entire chapter with God's own words being all the proof any believer should require, but rather being separated from becoming a government official and directly associated with Christ and God almighty for all of eternity whereas this world of saved ones through the extended hard roads of God’s punishments will eventually repent to obedience which will give them eternal salvation rather than only salvation, however they will not be the firstfruits for a government position. 

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)-(KJV)

Our Lord is all knowing, without flaw and without confusion through His words in the Holy Bible being as a book of instruction for this believing human race to not only learn from, but follow as if we are putting ourselves in the same situations as God’s chosen; and it’s because how can we also be chosen without the suffering as all men of God went through ever since the beginning?

In the pure words of our Lord from Genesis to Revelation there has always been suffering. Why is that? Have you been taught that God who makes no mistakes created Satan for the purpose to use as a tool for choosing who His firstfruits would be?

Let’s read with a clear view the sufferings of Paul because they are a lesson for all believers who want to become the bride of Christ who must go through the same while keeping their faith.

“Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they descendants of Abraham? So am I.

Are they ministers of Christ? I have more claim to this title than they. This is a silly game but look at this list: I have worked harder than any of them. I have served more prison sentences! I have been beaten times without number. I have faced death again and again.

I have been beaten the regulation thirty-nine stripes by the Jews five times.

I have been beaten with rods three times. I have been stoned once. I have been shipwrecked three times. I have been twenty-four hours in the open sea.

In my travels I have been in constant danger from rivers and floods, from bandits, from my own countrymen, and from pagans. I have faced danger in city streets, danger in the desert, danger on the high seas, danger among false Christians. I have known exhaustion, pain, long vigils, hunger and thirst, going without meals, cold and lack of clothing.

Apart from all external trials I have the daily burden of responsibility for all the churches. Do you think anyone is weak without my feeling his weakness? Does anyone have his faith upset without my longing to restore him? (2 Corinthians 11:22-29) -(Phillips)

“Those who win the victory will be clothed like this in white, and I will not remove their names from the book of the living. In the presence of my Father and of his angels I will declare openly that they belong to me. (Revelation 3:5)-(GNT)

Because I have learned to live within a world of hardships while developing a strong dependence on only God as my provider, these pure words of God speak of where I have been and am going.

“He lifts the poor from the dust
    and raises the needy from their misery.
He makes them companions of princes
    and puts them in places of honor.
The foundations of the earth belong to the Lord;
    on them he has built the world. (1 Samuel 2:8)-(Good News Translation)

If you genuinely love our Lord with all of your heart, only God who can read the hearts of all humanity knows of your coming destiny; and He is now delivering His truth through one of His chosen messengers because these words ahead is where this world of believers will find themselves.

“We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the Lord our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God. (Jeremiah 3:25)-(KJV)

 

Understanding God Part 2

How is it possible to know God without understanding?  How can one have a teacher to learn from without doing their assignments? How can any person learn without first placing full trust into every word that is spoken?

Of my hundreds of works for God through many years past, not as boasting, but as a learned student for teaching all who want only truth, read these words based on the ‘Fear of the Lord’ through my authors’ website or my link so that I can move on with what God wants me to write rather than a lengthy repeat.  

http://www.authorsden.com/jeffcallarman  or http://timesofroubles.webs.com/fearofthelord.htm

When THE WORD instructs, we as believers must do exactly as instructed without doubt or question because there is a purpose for our own well being.

“Put yourselves to the test and judge yourselves, to find out whether you are living in faith. Surely you know that Christ Jesus is in you?—unless you have completely failed. (2 Corinthians 13:5) -(GNT)

What follows below are but very few of the many teachings of God which man has never before properly taught, and knowing these words through obedience will be what determines your road of life which can either be the broad way which the many of this world walk, or the narrow way few can find with Psalms 91 being your guide for the decision on the road you choose.

 “ And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live. (Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4, Luke 4:4)-(KJV)  

Every word means the Old and New Testament; and many of the man-made religions of today tell their followers the Old Testament was nailed to the cross; and when believers believe man rather than their creator, they are showing absolutely no FAITH IN GOD or THE WORD we all as believers must live by.

“Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? (1 Corinthians 11:14)-(KJV)

In what you just read came through the WORDS OF CHRIST being THE WORD as written in John 1:1; and He says long hair on a man is a shame; yet all the religions of this world have made statues and images of our Lord who was a wood worker with much use of stone in his time which made him as a strong working man with muscle and short hair rather than what the god of this world has compelled all religions to do by making out Lord into some weak looking long haired individual who looks more gay and frail than words can even speak; yet all believers actually worship this disgusting false image.

“The teaching I gave you was given me personally by the Lord himself, and it was this: the Lord Jesus, in the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread and when he had given thanks he broke it and said, “Take, eat, this is my body which is being broken for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” Similarly when supper was ended, he took the cup saying, “This cup is the new agreement in my blood: do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.

This can only mean that whenever you eat this bread or drink of this cup, you are proclaiming that the Lord has died for you, and you will do that until he comes again.

[Have you been dying to yourself and becoming separate from this world as our Lord Jesus Christ?]

So that, whoever eats the bread or drinks the wine without due thought is making himself like one of those who allowed the Lord to be put to death without discerning who he was.

No, a man should thoroughly examine himself, and only then should he eat the bread or drink of the cup. He that eats and drinks carelessly is eating and drinking a judgment on himself, for he is blind to the presence of the Lord’s body. (1 Corinthians 11:23-29) -(Phillips)

As a believer in God through our Lord, were you in anyway aware of this world of religious people who actually call the body and the blood of Christ communion rather than the Passover for which it stands because of the blood?

Where you also aware by God’s own words that all the inhabitants of earth are in darkness and completely unworthy, therefore are eating and drinking judgement upon themselves?

Never forget these following words of God which prove to any who choose to believe only every word of God just how true they are with no interpretation required.

“The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Psalms 12:6, 119:140, Proverbs 30:5)-(KJV)

 But you must understand this at the outset, that no prophecy of scripture arose from an individual’s interpretation of the truth. No prophecy came because a man wanted it to: men of God spoke because they were inspired by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:20-21)        -(Phillips)

Now with that thought in mind on the words of our Lord, why is there an entire world of believers who do not believe what THE WORD clearly speaks in these following verses being directed towards this entire human race?

“The war broke out in Heaven. Michael and his angels battled with the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back, but they did not prevail and they were expelled from Heaven. So the huge dragon, the serpent of ancient times, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world, was hurled down upon the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. (Revelation 12:9)-(Phillips)

So how does the father of lies mislead this religious world of believers?

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.              (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)-(KJV)

Did what THE WORD just speak spiritually register? Satan's angels became ministers of righteousness!! Why can't believers believe what THE WORD clearly speaks to all believers?

All preachers, teachers, ministers, priests, popes, bishops profits, scholars, laymen, evangelists and individuals of every title will deny those words from God, and because of them being loved through their smooth words, they will be believed rather than the words all believers are to live by; and only the few with the 'FEAR OF THE LORD' can see God's truth because they know the true church of God is the body of Christ following only their Head and not a building of man with different names, spirits, beliefs and traditions while being filled with division worldwide. 

Following is guaranteed prophecy coming upon all humanity.

"They will all be terrified and overcome with pain, like the pain of a woman in labor. They will look at each other in fear, and their faces will burn with shame. The day of the Lord is coming—that cruel day of his fierce anger and fury. The earth will be made a wilderness, and every sinner will be destroyed. Every star and every constellation will stop shining, the sun will be dark when it rises, and the moon will give no light.

The Lord says, “I will bring disaster on the earth and punish all wicked people for their sins. I will humble everyone who is proud and punish everyone who is arrogant and cruel. Those who survive will be scarcer than gold. I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will be shaken out of its place on that day when I, the Lord Almighty, show my anger.

And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land. Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.

Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.

(Isaiah 13:8-16)-(KJV)

What you have just read are but only pure words of truth towards all humanity being their coming destiny with no way out, no way of escape and no place to hide; and with the entire Book called the Holy Bible filled with truth and instruction, why do not preachers, ministers, priests, prophets or any people using the name of God and our Lord make truth known with instruction on what each individual must do for God’s mercy?

"Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. (Psalms 33:18-19)-(KJV)

But it happened, because her prophets sinned and her priests were guilty of causing the death of innocent people. Her leaders wandered through the streets as though blind, so stained with blood that no one would touch them. (Lamentations 4:13-14)-(GNT)

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. (1 Timothy 4:1-5)

Remember what you read in Revelation 12:9 and 2 Corinthians 11:13-15? Take strong spiritual note of those words -- giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.

“See to it, then, that no one enslaves you by means of the worthless deceit of human wisdom, which comes from the teachings handed down by human beings and from the ruling spirits of the universe, and not from Christ. (Colossians 2:8)

Through every word of our Lord, there is continual warnings which are just not heard, not taught, not known or just ignored because believers have never even been directed in the only way to gain understanding of God which is the FEAR OF THE LORD.

“I myself have been made a minister of this same Gospel, and though it is true at this moment that I am suffering on behalf of you who have heard the Gospel, yet I am far from sorry about it. Indeed, I am glad, because it gives me a chance to complete in my own sufferings something of the untold pains for which Christ suffers on behalf of his body, the Church. For I am a minister of the Church by divine commission, a commission granted to me for your benefit and for a special purpose: that I might fully declare God’s word—that sacred mystery which up to now has been hidden in every age and every generation, but which is now as clear as daylight to those who love God. They are those to whom God has planned to give a vision of the full wonder and splendor of his secret plan for the sons of men. And the secret is simply this: Christ in you! Yes, Christ in you bringing with him the hope of all glorious things to come. (Colossians 1:24-27)-(Phillips)

 

Thus far in my life the sufferings that I have endured through the past six years are as nothing compared to the suffering coming upon me just as they came upon Paul; however by the grace of God the years past and current difficult times are as a blessing in only preparing me for what I know lies ahead; and in the same way I want to prepare you.

 

Understanding God Part 3

What exactly is my purpose and what is my message for this human race as a messenger from God?

First is teaching you what God has taught me because I follow His instruction best as humanly possible while seeking silver and hid treasures while at the same time being a sinner within the battles of flesh and spirit just as Paul in these very important words. . .

"We know that the Law is spiritual; but I am a mortal, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do; for I don't do what I would like to do, but instead I do what I hate. Since what I do is what I don't want to do, this shows that I agree that the Law is right. So I am not really the one who does this thing; rather it is the sin that lives in me. I know that good does not live in me—that is, in my human nature. For even though the desire to do good is in me, I am not able to do it. I don't do the good I want to do; instead, I do the evil that I do not want to do. If I do what I don't want to do, this means that I am no longer the one who does it; instead, it is the sin that lives in me.

So I find that this law is at work: when I want to do what is good, what is evil is the only choice I have. My inner being delights in the law of God. But I see a different law at work in my body—a law that fights against the law which my mind approves of. It makes me a prisoner to the law of sin which is at work in my body. What an unhappy man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is taking me to death? Thanks be to God, who does this through our Lord Jesus Christ!

This, then, is my condition: on my own I can serve God's law only with my mind, while my human nature serves the law of sin. (Romans 7:14-25)-(GNT)

Second is helping any on this earth to prepare for what lies ahead for all civilization with the beginning of sorrows nearly upon us.

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

All that is required from any human being on this planet is only to clear their own mind while looking at this human race as it truly has become while also seeing what we as human beings have done to destroy not only each other through wars, rebel violence, crimes, rapes, murders, tortures, human slavery, pornography slavery and massive cases of child abuse in the hundreds of millions along with what we all in modern society have done to the soil, water, air with even a space junk yard in orbit as a great threat to all the inhabitants on earth; and to just see this world’s reality as it truly is, is the same as seeing God’s spiritual weather report being the signs of the times which speak how all things as they currently are must come to their final end through the very pathetic human rule for the Kingdom of God to replace the god of this world on the throne who has brought earths destruction in the same way he did prior to the creation of man through being the father of lies so powerful that he caused 1/3 of the sons of God who were angels to become rebellious demons.  

Regarding the scripture you just read above, we already have a very deceived civilization in every category with this world of nations being more unstable than water while gearing up for massive wars via nuclear, chemical and biological weapons which will eliminate billions just as the new world order had carefully planned.

Next is the fact there is already a world food shortage which shall only grow worse and worse into becoming a great famine worldwide.

There is also the coming pestilence as contagious diseases produced from all the filth in cities due the coming major financial collapse turning all populated areas into lawless crime zones filled with murders, looting, merciless beatings, hunger, rapes, child abuse and power outages which will shut down sewer plants and everything else electronic while leaving only a grave stench from all the filth everywhere along with the use of NBC (Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical) weapons that will cause even more pestilence upon billions worldwide.

And within all this world’s chaos there will only be more added through all the coming earthquakes in places worldwide where least expected; and these few minor details just mentioned are as nothing compared to what will follow until nearly approximately seven billion people have become exterminated.  

Revelation chapter six goes well with Matthew 24, and now all civilization is nearing the beginning of our long slow end  through the coming years under the very ignorant uncaring rule of man whom has proved totally unworthy as can be clearly seen through history all the way back to the beginning of humanity.

For any that would like to view their destiny, just read these 17 verses while placing yourself within at any given point as your own end until your resurrection.

“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Revelation 6:1-17)-(KJV)

From what you just read, I feel very compelled to give you a better understanding of verses 10-11 which read. . .

"And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Would you like the answer from God on how long their rest yet for a little while until their fellow servants and brethren should be killed? It was Revelation 6:11 with the question and partial answer; and the more detailed answer comes from 6:11 in the book of Isaiah which reads. . .

"Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate. 

Do the pure and true words of our Lord teach and show that believers as servants and brethren were snatched away and spared from suffering and death? True scripture speaks truth while the lies through doctrines of the devil believers believe. 

What makes me different than most is that I believe every word of God, so when Christ speaks these words. . .

“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.              (John 15:19, 14:12)-(KJV)

I have not one person other than my wife as another part of the Body of Christ for spiritual conversation in full agreement as being in God’s spiritual realm; and it’s because those chosen become not liked, not heard and not understood; yet even though I am alone, I look only to the Father in what to speak to an unbelieving world accompanied with Christ like love and great concerns for all because they can see not their own coming destiny with children causing me great grief through mental suffering with sorrow because they will have no understanding when their life becomes as a living nightmare with no escape;  while at the same time waiting to do even greater works than Christ because He said that those who believeth on Him would; and I never question the words of my Lord; therefore I patiently wait for my want to help millions with food, shelter and their health through faith they will learn because with faith and God’s Spirit, all things are possible.

When God leads and makes a way, my wife and I will go anywhere on earth teaching true faith, but never within a building of man falsely called a church where Satan dwells and controls the religion taught by man through the spirit in man rather than the Spirit of God.

“And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.  (Revelation 2:13)-(KJV)

 

God's Spirit and the spirit in man.

"In the same way, my brothers, when I came to proclaim to you God’s secret purpose, I did not come equipped with any brilliance of speech or intellect. You may as well know now that it was my secret determination to concentrate entirely on Jesus Christ and the fact of his death upon the cross. As a matter of fact, in myself I was feeling far from strong; I was nervous and rather shaky. What I said and preached had none of the attractiveness of the clever mind, but it was a demonstration of the power of the Spirit! Plainly God’s purpose was that your faith should not rest upon man’s cleverness but upon the power of God.

We do, of course, speak “wisdom” among those who are spiritually mature, but it is not what is called wisdom by this world, nor by the powers-that-be, who soon will be only the powers that have been. The wisdom we speak of is that mysterious secret wisdom of God which he planned before the creation for our glory today. None of the powers of this world have known this wisdom—if they had they would never have crucified the Lord of glory!

But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love him’. But God has, through the Spirit, let us share his secret.

For nothing is hidden from the Spirit, not even the deep wisdom of God. For who could really understand a man’s inmost thoughts except the spirit of the man himself? How much less could anyone understand the thoughts of God except the very Spirit of God? And the marvellous thing is this, that we now receive not the spirit of the world but the Spirit of God himself, so that we can actually understand something of God’s generosity towards us.

It is these things that we talk about, not using the expressions of the human intellect but those which the Holy Spirit teaches us, explaining things to those who are spiritual.

But the unspiritual man simply cannot accept the matters which the Spirit deals with—they just don’t make sense to him, for, after all, you must be spiritual to see spiritual things. The spiritual man, on the other hand, has an insight into the meaning of everything, though his insight may baffle the man of the world. This is because the former is sharing in God’s wisdom, and ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?’ Incredible as it may sound, we who are spiritual have the very thoughts of Christ!           (1 Corinthians 2)-(Phillips)

 

Understanding God Part 4

Do you feel that you have understanding of God and are secure with no worries because of God's love being upon you as a believer? What follows are God’s own words directly to only those who choose to listen to THE WORD rather than man.

“The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.                       (Proverbs 3:19-26)-(KJV)

“I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straightened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life. (Proverbs 4:11-13)-(KJV)

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil. (Proverbs 1:7 14:26-27, 19:23)-(KJV)

“Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint. (Proverbs 25:19)-(KJV)

“For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. (Deuteronomy 31:29)-(KJV)

“Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge, That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee? (Proverbs 22:20-21)-(KJV)

Do you have any confusion or doubt regarding what THE WORD has just told you? Just how can any doubt and misunderstand what scripture speaks?

When we place our trust in only THE WORD through faith by actually following His written instruction being;

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)-(KJV)

All that we will learn in truth through our efforts with faith as our fuel totally nullifies our old life while creating within us the new self because Christ has become within our body making us able to follow only our Head being our Lord; and that is the only true church of God—Period!

Let us as brothers and sisters take a closer look at what God reveals when we actually do as He instructs by getting shed of our old self while making our time to become learners and followers according to our instruction; and what your going to read is but a very brief summary of this world's beliefs and days to honor in religious ways or a variety of other meanings with the whole point being that no matter who we are, where we are, what our beliefs may be or where our own human spirit leads us. . .

"God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. (Psalms 53:2-3, 14:2-3) -(KJV)

The reason God speaks those words to all the inhabitants of this earth is because believers don't believe His instruction whereas non believers are at least honest enough to say they don't believe in God; and what follows just shows how many gods and traditions this world of religion and beliefs have compared to the only one true God that none, no, not one believer seeks according to instruction.

So what's the bottom line? This entire God believing human race has become a totally misled massive religious disaster scattered worldwide as covered in chapter 19 of my book "Message for this Entire Human Race".

And being there is but only one true GOD THE FATHER whom all believers can only seek through our LORD JESUS CHRIST --

Whoever you may be in any part of this world and no matter what you may believe, there is nothing to stop you from just asking God from your heart to lead you in truth because God will answer you. 

Just look as this world today filled with more darkness and evil than our minds can even begin to contemplate while asking yourself what your god has done to correct it or what is the plan of your god is to make things better with also wanting to know how and when it will happen?

My God answers all questions through His words in the holy Bible with proof of these end times according to the signs of the times as written prophecy thousands of years ago; and whatever your decision may be, all it means is the road you will be on through these coming years being either with God's mercy or without; however the destination for both roads lead to these words. . .

"I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. (Isaiah 45:23)-(KJV)

There will be additional parts to Understanding God as He leads. May God have mercy upon you through softening your heart rather than making it hard.

"It seems plain, then, that God chooses on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will harden in their sin.(Romans 9:18)-(KJV)
