Chapter 1
 The Lost Command
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son,that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned,but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the Name of God’s one and only Son.”
1
  This is the Gospel of the Kingdom of God: “God the Father has aSon. His Name is Jesus Christ. And He is coming soon.” This is the GoodNews of the Kingdom of God. Jesus is the Son who came to seek and to save what was lost to God His Father. If we want to understand what is lost, weneed to know what God seeks, because God seeks what He desires. Jesustestified that His Father seeks worshippers who worship Him in spirit and intruth. Jesus said, “God is Spirit, and His worshippers must worship in spiritand in truth.”
2
He also said that the Father is seeking glory for Himself: “I amnot seeking glory for Myself; but there is One who seeks it and He is the Judge.”
3
  What was lost to God from the beginning is a world where thefullness of God dwells in all Creation and all Creation exists through Him as itlives and prospers out of His Oneness by the glory of His love and by thepower of His Spirit and the fullness of the truth of His Word. The world wasprepared by God for God, and it belongs to God as surely as the glory of theLord fills the whole Earth.
4
It was created in the mind and heart of the One who is the Father, spoken into existence by the Word, who was begotten asthe Father’s beloved Son Jesus, and made manifest by the power of the Holy Spirit who hovered over the waters of a formless Earth until God sent forthHis word. God the Father, God the Word, and God the Holy Spirit createdthe world for Their enjoyment and out of Their imaginations and aspirations

for life, love and glory. God created the Heavens and the Earth.
5
He createdall the creatures on the Earth and in the seas, living things both large and small. When God sent forth His Spirit, they were created.
6
He created man, male andfemale, to fill the Earth and subdue it.
7
They are His sons and daughters who were made in Their Image and Likeness, whom God created for His glory, butare the same ones who have rejected His Name and scorned His word.God lost the perfection He had intended for His Image and Likeness when the first male, Adam, disobeyed His word, causing Him to cast Adamand Eve and their descendants out of the garden from His presence. But HisSon, full of love for the Father, came charging from Heaven mighty to save what was lost to His Father’s kingdom. He was the Lamb that was slain fromthe creation of the world.
8
The Son of God was sinless because He is thefullness of grace and truth, but He became sin to be God’s sin offering for the world. And it was as the Son of Man that He came to seek what was lost, notas the Son of God. In the NIV, Jesus only acknowledged Himself as the Sonof God four separate times in the four gospels and once in Revelation.
9
 Compare it to the numerous times He called Himself the Son of Man in thesame four gospels. Have you asked the Holy Spirit why that is? Did you pay attention to Jesus’ words in this regard? What was so significant about thetruth in John 5.25 that the Father specifically referred to Jesus as the Son of God? Have you learnt to recognise the voice of the Truth speaking thelanguage of Truth? Do you believe Jesus when He said that He is theResurrection and the Life?
10
 God in the flesh was a form that was recognisable by the Jews as Jesus made His dwelling with them to draw all men back to Himself, so thatHe may raise them up on the last day in the fullness of eternal life. And eternallife begins now on Earth, as you come to know the only true God and JesusChrist whom He sent.
11
Have you ever imagined the pleasure of falling in love with God the Father through His Son Jesus,
12
and maintaining that love forHim as you remain faithful, even to the point of death, to overcome the battlesof this age in resurrection triumph? When we were lost to God, we lost ouroneness with Him and we became lifeless to Him. He is the God of the living;a living God as all are alive by Him. But Adam chose death when He

disobeyed the Father’s command. And we, the church together with the world,continue to perish because we do not repent of disobedience to Jesus’commands. As the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to havelife in Himself.
13
Because the Son lives, we also will live.
14
This is the privilege we receive in the Covenant for the Forgiveness of Sins. All who reject the pure,solid stream of the words of Jesus are not in oneness with the Father becausethey have rejected the narrow path of following Jesus, listening to Him andfellowshipping with the Holy Ghost. They have no life in them. The words Jesus spoke to us are Spirit and they are life.
15
They are the words that theHoly Spirit reminds us daily as He teaches us ALL things and guides us into ALL truth.
16
If Jesus is not in us, we do not have salvation, life andresurrection. Yet there are some of us in the church who still do not believe ALL the words of Jesus because they have confused living or lifestyle witheternal life.For mankind, disbelief of the sovereignty and disregard of theauthority of God’s word began at the time when Adam chose to listen to Eveinstead of the Father’s command to refrain from eating from the Tree of theKnowledge of Good and Evil and of Blessing and Calamity.
17
God’scommand ushered in the entrance of death. By the trespass of Adam, deathreigned through that man, and we ourselves fill up the measure of the sin of our forefathers when we refuse to believe in Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, and refuse to obey and practise all the commands of Jesus under theCovenant for the Forgiveness of Sins. What is the Father’s command to the disciples of Jesus Christ? It isthe one that the Father had commanded Peter, John and James on the Mountof Transfiguration: “ This is My Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.
Listen to Him

 But the church, the body of Christ, has turned from listening to Jesusand the Holy Spirit, and from putting ALL of Jesus’ words into practice. How has the church turned, you ask? How has the church failed?Have the churches confused themselves with synagogues? Why is theLaw of Moses preached in churches? Why are the flocks fed teachings thatconsist of parts of the Levitical Law, mixed in with a few verses of Paul’steachings, and one or two lines of the commands of Jesus Christ? Should
