TABLE OF GRACE

OPENING: READ GEN 14:18 PS: 133,

PASSOVER – A JEWISH FESTIVAL TO COMMEMORATE THE


EXODUS FROM EGYPT. EX 12:3-28 (FEAST OF FREEDOM)

A. FEATURES CONCERNING:

LAMB TAKEN ON THE TENTH DAy

EX 12: 3,4 SPEAK YE UNTO ALL THE CONGREGATION OF


ISRAEL, SAYING, IN THE TENTH DAY OF THIS MONTH
THEY SHALL TAKE TO THEM EVERY MAN A LAMB,
ACCORDING TO THE HOUSE OF THEIR FATHERS, A LAMB
FOR AN HOUSE 4. THE DAY CAME YE OUT IN THE MONTH
ABIB (MARCH/APRIL TIME FRAME) (TIME OF BARLEY
HARVEST!)

ABIB – MEANS RIPENING OF THE GRAIN

BLOOD APPLIED TO SIDE POST AND UPPER DOOR POST:

EX 12:7 AND THEY SHALL TAKE OF THE BLOOD, AND


STRIKE IT ON THE TWO SIDE POSTS AND ON THE UPPER
DOOR POST OF THE HOUSES, WHEREIN THEY SHALL EAT
IT.

THE LORD'S PASSOVER:

EX 12:11-13 11. AND THUS SHALL YE EAT IT, WITH


YOUR LOINS GRIDED, YOUR SHOES ON YOUR FEET, AND
YOUR STAFF IN YOUR HAND; AND YE SHALL EAT IT IN
HASTE: IT IS THE LORD'S PASSOVER. 12. FOR I WILL
PASS THROUGH the LAND OF EGYPT THIS NIGHT, AND
WILL SMITE ALL THE FIRSTBORN IN THE LAND OF
EGYPT, BOTH MAN AND BEAST: AND AGAINST ALL THE
GODS OF EGYPT I WILL EXECUTE JUDGMENT: I AM THE
LORD. 13. AND THE BLOOD SHALL BE TO YOU FOR A
TOKEN UPON THE HOUSES WHERE YE ARE: AND WHEN I
SEE THE BLOOD, I WILL PASS OVER YOU, AND THE
PLAGUE SHALL NOT BE UPON YOU TO DESTROY YOU, WHEN
I SMITE THE LAND OF EGYPT.

LAMB EATEN ON THE FOURTEENTH DAY

EX 12:6, 8 6. AND YE SHALL KEEP IT UP UNTIL THE


FOURTEENTH DAY OF THE SAME MONTH: AND THE WHOLE
ASSEMBLY OF THE CONGREGATION OF ISRAEL SHALL KILL
IT IN THE EVENING. 8. AND THEY SHALL EAT THE
FLESH IN THAT NIGHT ROAST WITH FIRE, AND
UNLEAVENED BREAD; AND WITH BITTER HERBS THEY
SHALL EAT IT

TO BE REPEATED ANNUALLY:

EX. 12: 24-27 24. AND YE SHALL OBSERVE THIS


THING FOR AN ORDINANCE TO THEE AND TO THY SONS
FOR EVER. 25. AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, WHEN YE
BE COME TO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU,
ACCORDING AS HE HATH PROMISED, THAT YE SHALL KEEP
THIS SERVICE. 26. AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, WHEN
YOUR CHILDREN SHALL SAY UNTO YOU, WHAT MEAN YE BY
THIS SERVICE? 27 THAT YE SHALL SAY, IT IS THE
SACRIFICE OF THE LORD'S PASSOVER, WHO PASSED OVER
THE HOUSES OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN EGYPT,
WHEN HE SMOTE THE EGYPTIANS, AND DELIVERED OUR
HOUSES. AND THE PEOPLE BOWED THEIR HEAD AND
WORSHIPPED.

B. OBSERVANCE OF:

THERE ARE THREE RECORDED OBSERVANCE OF THE


PASSOVER

AT SINAI NUM. 9:1-14

AT THE CONQUEST JOSH 5:10-12

BY CHRIST MATT 26:18,19

C. TYPIFIES THE LORD'S DEATH ( THE LORD'S SUPPER)

LAMB WITHOUT BLEMISH


1 PET 1:19 BUT WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST,
AS OF A LAMB WITHOUT BLEMISH AND WITHOUT SPOT:

ONE OF THEIR OWN

EX 12:5 YOUR LAMB SHALL BE WITHOUT BLEMISH, A


MALE OF THE FIRST YEAR: YE SHALL TAKE IT OUT FROM
THE SHEEP, OR FROM THE GOATS:

HEB 2:14-17 14.FOR WE ARE MADE PARTAKERS OF


CHRIST, IF WE HOLD THE BEGINNING OF OUR
CONFIDENCE STEDFAST UNTO THE END; 15. WHILE IT IS
SAID, TODAY IF YE WILL HEAR HIS VOICE, HARDEN NOT
YOUR HEARTS, AS IN THE PROVOCATION. 16. FOR SOME,
WHEN THEY HAD HEARD, DID PROVOKE: HOWBEIT NOT ALL
THAT CAME OUT OF EGYPT BY MOSES. 17. BUT WITH
WHOM WAS HE GRIEVED FORTY YEARS? WAS IT NOT WITH
THEM THAT HAD SINNED WHOSE CARCASES FELL IN THE
WILDERNESS?

LAMB CHOSEN

EX 12:3 3 SPEAK YE UNTO ALL THE CONGREGATION OF


ISRAEL, SAYING, IN THE TENTH DAY OF THIS MONTH
THEY SHALL TAKE TO THEM EVERY MAN A LAMB,
ACCORDING TO THE HOUSE OF THEIR FATHERS, A LAMB
FOR AN HOUSE:

1 PET 2:4 TO WHOM COMING, AS UNTO A LIVING STONE,


DISALLOWED INDEED OF MEN, BUT CHOSEN OF GOD AND
PRECIOUS,

SLAIN AT GOD'S APPOINTED TIME

EX. 12:6 6. AND YE SHALL KEEP IT UP UNTIL THE


FOURTEENTH DAY OF THE SAME MONTH: AND THE WHOLE
ASSEMBLY OF THE CONGREGATION OF ISRAEL SHALL KILL
IT IN THE EVENING.

ACT 2:23 HIM BEING DELIVERED BY THE DETERMINATE


COUNSEL AND FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD, YE HAVE TAKEN,
AND BY WICKED HANDS HAVE CRUCIFIED AND SLAIN:
1COR 5:7 PURGE OUT THEREFORE THE OLD LEVEN,THAT
YE MAY BE A NEW LUMP, AS YE ARE UNLEAVENED. FOR
EVEN CHRIST OUR PASSOVER IS SACRIFICED FOR US:

OBSERVED AT THE APPOINTED PLACE.

DUET 5:5-9 BUT UNTO THE PLACE WHICH THE LORD YOUR
GOD SHALL CHOOSE OUT OF ALL YOUR TRIBES TO PUT
HIS NAME THERE, EVEN UNTO HIS HABITATION SHALL YE
SEEK, AND THITHER THOU SHALL COME: 6. AND THITHER
YE SHALL BRING YOUR BURNT-OFFERINS, AND YOUR
SACRIFICES, AND YOUR TITHES, AND HEAVE-OFFERINGS
OF YOUR HAND, AND YOUR VOWS, AND YOUR FREE WILL
OFFERINGS, AND THE FIRSTLINGS OF YOUR HERDS AND
OF YOUR FLOCKS: 7. AND THERE YE SHALL EAT BEFORE
THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND YE SHALL REJOICE IN ALL
THAT YE PUT YOUR HAND UNTO, YE AND YOUR
HOUSEHOLDS, WHEREIN THE LORD THY GOD HATH BLESSED
THEE. 8.YE SHALL NOT DO AFTER ALL THE THINGS THAT
WE DO HERE THIS DAY, EVERY MAN WHATSOEVER IS
RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES. 9. FOR YE ARE NOT AS YET
COME TO THE REST AND TO THE INHERITANCE, WHICH
THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVETH YOU.

SPECIAL CIRCUSTANCES-FOR THOSE WHO WERE UNCLEAN,


OR ON JOURNEY TO BE HELD IN THE SECOND MONTH –

NUMBERS 9:6-12 6. AND THERE WERE CERTAIN MEN, WHO


WERE DEFILED BY THE DEAD BODY OF A MAN, THAT THEY
COULD NOT KEEP THE PASSOVER ON THAT DAY: AND THEY
CAME BEFORE MOSES AND BEFORE AARON ON THAT DAY:
7. AND THOSE MEN SAID UNTO HIM, WE ARE DEFILED BY
THE DEAD BODY OF A MAN: WHEREFORE ARE WE KEPT
BACK, THAT WE MAY NOT OFFER AN OFFERING OF THE
LORD IN HIS APPOINTED SEASON AMONG THE CHLDFEN OF
ISRAEL? 8. AND MOSES SAID UNTO THEM, STAND STILL,
AND I WILL HEAR WHAT THE LORD WILL COMMAND
CONCERNING YOU. 9 AND THE LORD SPAKE UNTO MOSES,
SAYING 10. SPEAK UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL,
SAYING, IF ANY MAN OF YOU OR OF YOUR POSTERITY
SHALL BE UNCLEAN BY REASON OF A DEAD BODY, OR BE
IN A JOURNEY AFAR OFF, YET HE SHALL KEEP THE
PASSOVER UNTO THE LORD. 11. THE FORTHEENTH DAY OF
THE SECOND MONTH AT EVEN THEY SHALL KEEP IT, AND
EAT IT WITH UNLEAVENED BREAD AND BITTER HERBS.
12. THEY SHALL LEAVE NONE OF IT UNTO THE MORNING,
NOR BREAK ANY BONE OF IT: ACCORDING TO ALL THE
ORDINACES OF THE PASOVER THEY SHALL KEEP IT.

FROM THIS WE CAN SEE THAT WHEN COMING BEFORE THE


LORD WE ARE TO BE HOLY. THIS BEING OUR
RESPONSIBILITY:

LEV 11:45 FOR I AM THE LORD WHO BRINGETH YOU UP


OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, TO BE YOUR GOD YE SHALL
THEREFORE BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.

THEREFORE WHEN MOSES BROUGHT THE PEOPLE BEFORE


THE LORD ON MOUNT SINAI THEY WERE TO BE HOLY

EX 19:14-16 AND MOSES WENT DOWN FROM THE MOUNT


UNTO THE PEOPLE, AND SANCTIFIED THE PEOPLE; AND
THEY WASHED THEIR CLOTHES. 15 AND HE SAID UNTO
THE PEOPLE, BE READY ON THE THIRD DAY: COME NOT
AT YOUR WIVES.16 AND IT CAME TO PASS ON THE THIRD
DAY IN THE MORNING, THAT THERE WERE THUNDERS AND
LIGHTNINGS, AND A THICK CLOUD UPON THE MOUNT, AND
THE VOICE OF THE TRUMPET EXCEEDINGLY LOUD, SO
THAT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WERE IN THE CAMP
TREMBLED.

AND AGAIN IN 1 SAM 21:4-6

1SAM 21:4 AND THE PRIEST ANSWERED DAVID, AND


SAID, THERE IS NO COMMON BREAD UNDER MINE HAND,
BUT THERE IS HALLOWED BREAD, IF THE YOUNG MEN
HAVE KEPT THEMSELVES AT LEAST FROM WOMEN.5. AND
DAVID ANSWERED THE PRIEST, AND SAID UNTO HIM, OF
A TRUTH WOMEN HAVE BEEN KEPT FROM US ABOUT THESE
THREE DAYS, SINCE I CAME OUT, AND THE VESSELS OF
THE YOUNG MEN ARE HOLY, AND THE BREAD IS IN A
MANNER COMMON, YEA THOUGH IT WERE SANCTIFIED THIS
DAY IN THE VESSEL.6. SO THE PRIEST GAVE HIM
HALLOWED BREAD;

HOW THEN CAN WE BE HOLY IF WE ARE SINNERS?


HEB 9:13-15`FOR IF THE BLOOD OF BULLS AND OF
GOATS, AND THE ASHES OF AN HEIFER SPRINKLING THE
UNCLEAN, SANCTIFIED TO THE PURIFYING OF THE
FLESH,14. HOW MUCH MORE SHALL THE BLOOD OF
CHRIST, WHO THROUGH THE ETERNAL SPIRIT OFFERED
HIMSELF WITHOUT SPOT TO GOD PURGE YOUR CONSCIENCE
FROM DEAD WORKS TO SERVE THE LIVING GOD? 15.AND
FOR THIS CAUSE HE IS THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW
TESTAMENT THAT BY MEANS OF DEATH FOR THE
REDEMPTION OF THE TRANSGRESSIONS THAT WERE UNDER
THE FIRST TESTAMENT THEY WHO ARE CALLED MIGHT
RECEIVE THE PROMISE OF ETERNAL INHERITANCE.

ROM 5:8 BUT GOD COMMENDETH HIS LOVE TOWARD US IN


THAT, WHILE; WE WERE YET SINNERS CHRIST DIED FOR
US.

HEB 4:16 LET US THEREFORE, COME BOLDY UNTO THE


THRONE OF GRACE THAT WE MAY OBTAIN MERCY, AND
FIND GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED.

WHAT THEN DOES THIS MEAN TO THE SINNING CHRISTIAN


WHEN WE COMES BEFORE THE TABLE OF GRACE TO
RECEIVE HIS SANTIFACATION?

KING DAVID IN HIS FARWELL SPEECH IN 1 CHRONICLES


CHAPTER 29 IN EXORTING THE ISREALITES TO BUILD
THE TEMPLE OF GOD, GIVES US AN EXAMPLE ON HOW WE
SHOULD APPROACH THE THRONE.

1CHR 29:2 NOW I HAVE PREPARED WITH ALL MIGHT FOR


THE HOUSE OF MY GOD.......

SO WE MUST PREPARE OURSELVES TO RECEIVE THE GIFT


OF LIFE.

HOW DO WE DO THAT?

MATH 5:23,24 THEREFORE, IF THOU BRING THY GIFT TO


THE ALTAR, AND THERE REMEMBEREST THAT THY BROTHER
HATH OUGHT AGAINST THEE,2 4 LEAVE THERE THY GIFT
BEFORE THE ALTAR, AND GO THY WAY, FIRST BE
RECONCILED TO THY BROTHER AND THEN COME AND OFFER
THY GIFT.
THIS IS AN OVERT ACT ON OUR PART TO RIGHT THE
TRASPASSES WE HAVE COMMITTED. IN OTHERS WORDS
ASKING FOR FORGIVNESS AND RIGHTING THE WRONGS WE
HAVE COMMITTED AND FORGIVING THOSE WHO HAVE
TRESSPASSED AGAINST US.

1CHR 29:6 THEN THE CHIEFS OF THE FATHERS, AND


PRINCES OF THE TRIBES OF ISREAL, AND THE CAPTAINS
OF THOUSANDS AND THE HUNDREDS, WITH THE RULERS;
OF THE KING'S WORK, OFFERED WILLINGING

SO WE MUST OFFER WILLINGLY

EX 35:29 IS OUR EXAMPLE

EX35:29 THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL BROUGHT A WILLING


OFFERING UNTO THE LORD EVERY MAN AND WOMAN, WHOSE
HEART MADE THEM WILLING TO BRING FOR ALL MANNER
OF WORK, WHICH THE LORD HAD COMMANDED TO BE MADE
BY THE HAND OF MOSES.

DAVID'S FREE WILL OFFERING

1CHR 22:14 NOW BEHOLD, IN MY TROUBLE I HAVE


PREPARED FOR THE HOUSE OF THE LORD AN HUNDRED
THOUSAND TALENTS OF GOLD, AND A MILLION TALENTS
OF SILVER; AND OF BRONZE AND IRON BEYOND WEIGHT;
FOR IT IS IN ABUNDANCE. TIMBER ALSO, AND STONE
HAVE I PREPARED; AND THOU MAYEST ADD TO THIS

(IN TODAYS' MARKET CONSERVATIVELY DAVIDS' GIFT OF


GOLD WOULD BE WORTH $5.5 BILLION DOLLARS.)

OUR FREE WILL OFFERING IS OURSELVES, AND THAT


WHICH OUR LORD HAS LENT US. THIS IS THE ONLY
GIVING THAT IS REQUIRED OF US TO RECEIVE
SALVATION!

GRACE AND SALVATION ARE FREE!

AFTER PREPARING AND GIVING OUR FREE WILL OFFERING


OF OURSELVES WE CAN REJOICE
1CHR 29:9 THEN THE PEOPLE REJOICED; FOR THEY
OFFERED WILLINGLY, BECAUSE WITH PERFECT HEART
THEY OFFERED WILLINGLY TO THE LORD; AND DAVID,
THE KING, ALSO REJOICED WITH GREAT JOY.

DT 12:7 AND THERE YE SHALL EAT BEFORE THE LORD


YOUR GOD, AND YE SHALL REJOICE IN ALL THAT YE PUT
YOUR HAND UNTO, YE AND YOUR HOUSEHOLDS, WHEREIN
THE LORD THY GOD HATH BLESSED THEE.

A GRACIOUS GOD PROVIDES FOR HIS PEOPLE

DT 12:14 AND THOU SHALT REJOICE IN THY EAST, THOU


AND THY SON, AND THY DAUGHTER, AND THY
MANSERVANT, AND THY MAIDSERVANT AND THE LEVITE,
THE SOJOURNER, AND THE FATHERLESS AND THE WIDOW
WHO ARE WITHIN THE GATES

A GRACIOUS GOD PROVIDES FOR ALL NOT TO LOSE ANY


NOT WILLING ANY TO PERISH

MATH 18:14 EVEN SO IT IS NOT THE WILL OF YOUR


FATHER, WHO IS IN HEAVEN, THAT ONE OF THESE
LITTLE ONES SHOULD PERISH.

DT 26:11 AND THOU SHALT REJOICE IN EVERY GOOD


THING WHICH THE LORD THY GOD HATH GIVEN UNTO
THEE, AND UNTO THINE HOUSE, THOU, AND THE LEVITE,
AND THE SOJOURNER WHO IS AMONG YOU.

OUR LORD WANTS US TO BE A HAPPY AND A CONTENT


PEOPLE WANTING FOR NOTHING!

ECCL: 2:24 THERE IS NOTHING BETTER FOR A MAN,


THAN THAT HE SHOULD EAT AND DRINK, AND THAT HE
SHOULD MAKE HIS SOUL ENJOY GOOD IN HIS LABOR.
THIS ALSO I SAW, THAT IT WAS FROM THE HAND OF
GOD.

1CHR 29:10 WHEREFORE, DAVID BLESSED THE LORD


BEFORE ALL THE CONGREGATION; AND DAVID SAID,
BLESSED BE THOU, LORD GOD OF ISRAEL, OUR FATHER,
FOREVER AND EVER
WE MAY SAY BLESSED IS THE LORD BUT HOW MANY MORE
BLESSINGS DOES HE GIVE US?

MAL 3:10 BRING ALL THE TITHES INTO THE


STOREHOUSE, THAT THERE MAY BE MEAT IN MINE HOUSE
AND PROVE ME NOW HEREWITH SAITH THE LORD OF
HOSTS, IF I WILL NOT OPEN FOR YOU THE WINDOWS OF
HEAVEN AND POUR OUT FOR YOU A BLESSING THAT THERE
SHALL NOT BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE IT.

PS 65:4 BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO THOU CHOOSEST, AND


CAUSESTH TO APPROACH UNTO THEE THAT HE MAY DWELL
IN THY COURTS; WE SHALL BE SATISFIED WITH THE
GOODNESS OF THY HOUSE, EVEN OF THY HOLY TEMPLE.

1CHR 29:20 AND DAVID SAID TO ALL THE CONGREGATION


NOW BLESS THE LORD YOUR GOD. AND ALL THE
CONGREGATION BLESSED THE LORD GOD OF THEIR
FATHERS, AND BOWED DOWN THEIR HEADS, AND
WORSHIPED THE LORD, AND THE KING.

AND SO WE SHOULD WORSHIP THE LORD

PS 95:6 OH, COME, LET US WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN;


LET US KNEEL BEFORE THE LORD OUR MAKER,

DT 10:20 THOU SHALT FEAR THE LORD THY GOD: HIM


SHALT THOU SERVE, AND TO HIM SHALT THOU CLEAVE,
AND SWEAR BY HIS NAME

WE NOW HAVE THE AUTHORITY GIVEN BY GOD TO


APPROACH THE TABLE OF GRACE

WE HAVE BEEN JUSTIFIED BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST TO


PARTAKE OF THE EMBLEMS

WE HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY TO FORGIVE AND ASK FOR


FORGIVNESS OF OUR SINS
KNOWING THIS WE ARE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR
ACTION BY GOD OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN

1COR 11:27 - 32 WHEREFORE, WHOSOEVER SHALL EAT


THIS BREAD, AND DRINK THIS CUP OF THE LORD,
UNWORTHILY, SHALL BE GUILTY OF THE BODY AND BLOOD
OF THE LORD. 28. BUT LET A MAN, EXAMINE, HIMSELF,
AND SO LET HIM EAT OF THAT BREAD, AND DRINK OF
THAT CUP. 29. FOR HE THAT EATETH AND DRINKETH
UNWORTHILY, EATETH AND DRINKETH JUDGMENT TO
HIMSELF, NOT DISCERNING THE LORD'S BODY. 30. FOR
THIS CAUSE MANY ARE WEAK AND SICKLY AMONG YOU,
AND MANY SLEEP. 31. FOR IF WE WOULD JUDGE
OURSELVES, WE SHOULD NOT BE JUDGED. 32. BUT WHEN
WE ARE JUDGED, WE ARE CHASTENED OF THE LORD, THAT
WE SHOULD NOT BE CONDEMNED WITH THE WORLD.

THE SIGNIFICANT OF THE LORDS SUPPER

1.CHRIST IS OUR PASSOVER

JOHN 1:29 THE NEXT DAY JOHN SEETH JESUS COMING


UNTO HIM, AND SAITH, BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD WHO
TAKETH AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD.

JOHN 19:36 FOR THESE THINGS WERE DONE, THAT THE


SCRIPTURE SHOULD BE FULFILLED, A BONE OF HIM
SHALL NOT BE BROKEN

1 COR 5:7 PURGE OUT, THEREFORE, THE OLD LEVEN,


THAT YE MAY BE A NEW LUMP, AS YE ARE UNLEAVENED.
FOR EVEN CHRIST, OUR PASSOVER, IS SACRIFICED FOR
US

1PET 1:18 – 18 FORASMUCH AS YE KNOW THAT YE WERE


NOT REDEEMED WITH CORRUPTIBLE THINGS, LIKE SILVER
AND GOLD, FROM YOUR VAIN MANNER OF LIFE RECEIVED
BY TRADITION FROM YOUR FATHERS, 19. BUT WITH THE
PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST, AS OF A LAMB WITHOUT
BLEMISH AND WITHOUT SPOT,

2. THE PASSOVER IS THE FOUNDATION FOR THE LORD'S


SUPPER. I WOULD INVITE ALL TO REVIEW THE
FOLLOWING.
MATT 26:17 - 30

MARK 14:12 - 25

LUKE 22: 1 – 20

3. THE PASSOVER FORESHADOWS THE MARRIAGE SUPPER


OF THE LAMB (MARRIAGE SUPPER UNION OF TWO INTO
ONE)

MATH 26:29 BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, I WILL NOT DRINK


HENCEFORTH OF THIS FRUIT OF THE VINE, UNTIL THAT
DAY WHEN I DRINK IT NEW WITH YOU IN MY FATHER'S
KINGDOM

MARK 14:25 VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, I WILL DRINK


NO MORE OF THE FRUIT OF THE VINE, UNTIL THAT DAY
THAT I DRINK IT NEW IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

LUKE 22:16-18 16. FOR I SAY UNTO YOU, I WILL NOT


ANY MORE EAT OF IT, UNTIL IT BE FUFILLED IN THE
KINGDOM OF GOD. 17. AND HE TOOK THE CUP, AND GAVE
THANKS, AND SAID, TAKE THIS, AND DIVIDE IT AMONG
YOURSELVES; 18. FOR I SAY UNTO YOU, I WILL NOT
DRINK OF THE FRUIT OF THE VINE, UNTIL THE KINGDOM
OF GOD SHALL COME

IN CONCLUSION FROM HEBREWS WE READ

HEB 9:25-28 25. NOR YET THAT HE SHOULD OFFER


HIMSELF OFTEN, AS THE HIGH PRIEST ENTERETH INTO
THE HOLY PLACE EVERY YEAR WITH BLOOD OF OTHERS;
26. FOR THEN MUST HE OFTEN HAVE SUFFERED SINCE
THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD: BUT NOW ONCE IN THE
END OF THE WORLD HATH HE APPEARED TO PUT AWAY SIN
BY THE SACRIFICE OF HIMSELF. 27. AND AS IT IS
APPOINTED UNTO MEN ONCE TO DIE, BUT AFTER THIS
THE JUDGEMENT: 28. SO CHRIST WAS ONCE OFFERED TO
BEAR THE SINS OF MANY; AND UNTO THEM THAT LOOK
FOR HIM SHALL HE APPEAR THE SECOND TIME WITHOUT
SIN UNTO SALVATION.

IN CLOSING I WOULD LIKE TO READ PROV:16 4-7


PROV:16 4-7 4. THE LORD HATH MADE ALL THINGS FOR
HIMSELF: YEA, EVEN THE WICKED FOR THE DAY OF
EVIL.5. EVERY ONE THAT IS PROUD IN HEART IS AN
ABOMINATION TO THE LORD: 6. BY MERCY AND TRUTH
INIQUITYT IS PURGED: AND BY THE FEAR OF THE LORD
MEN DEPARTY FROM EVIL. 7. WHEN A MAN’SWAYS PLEASE
THE LORD, HE MAKETH EVEN HIS ENEMIES TO BE AT
PEACE WITH HIM.

FOOT NOTE:- MELCHIZEDEK ORDER

GEN: 14:18 AND MELCHIZEDEK KING OF SALEM BROUGHT


FORTH BREAD AND WINE: AND HE WAS THE PRIEST OF
THE MOST HIGH GOD.

GEN: 40: 1 AND IT CAME TO PASS AFTER THESE


THINGS, THAT THE BUTLER OF THE KING OF EGYPT AND
HIS BAKER HAD OFFENDED THEIR LORD THE KING OF
EGYPT.

GEN 40:9-13 9. AND THE CHIEF BUTLER TOLD HIS


DREAM TO JOSEPH, AND SAID TO HIM, IN MY DREAM,
BEHOLD A VINE WAS BEFORE ME; 10. AND IN THE VINE
WERE THREE BRANCHES: AND IT WAS AS THOUGH IT
BUDDED, AND HER BLOSSOMS SHOT FORTH: AND THE
CLUSTERS THEREOF BROUGHT FORTH RIPE GRAPES: 11.
AND PHARAOH’S CUP WAS IN MY HAND: AND I TOOK THE
GRAPES, AND PRESSED THEM INTO PHARAOH’S CUP AND I
GAVE THE CUP INTO PHARAOH’S HAND. 12. AND JOSEPH
SAID UNTO HOM, THIS IS THE INTERPRETATION OF IT:
THE THREE BRANCHES ARE THREE DAYS: 13. YET WITHIN
THREE DAYS SHALL PHARAOH LIFT UP THINE HEAD, AND
RESTORE THEE UNTO THEY PLACE; AND THOU SHALT
DELIVER HARAOH’S CUP INTO HIS HAND, AFTER THE
FORMER MANNER WHEN THOU WAS HIS BUTLER.

GEN 40: 16-19 WHEN THE CHIEF BAKER SAW THT THE
INTERPRETATION WAS GOOD, HE SAID UNTO JOSEPH, I
ALSO WAS IN MY DREAM AND, BEHOLD, I HAD THREE
WHITE BASKETS ON MY HEAD: 17. AND IN THE
UPPERMOST BASKET THERE WAS OF ALL MANNER OF
BAKEMEATS OF PHARAOH: AND THE BIRDS DID EAT THEM
OUT OF THE BASKET UPON MY HEAD. 18. AND JOSEPH
ANSWERED AND SAID, THIS IS THE INTERPRETATION
THEREOF: THE THREE BASKETS ARE THREE DAYS: 19.
YET WITHIN THREE DAYS SHALL PHARAOH LIF UP THY
HEAD FROM OFF THEE, AND SHALL HANG THEE ON A
TREE; AND THE BIRDS SHALL EAT THEY FLESH FROM OFF
THEE.

MATH: 26-28 AND AS THEY WERE EATING,JESUS TOOK


BREAD, AND BLESSED IT, AND BRAKE IT, AND GAVE T
TO THE DISCIPLES,AND SAID, TAKE EAT: THIS IS MY
BODY. 27. AND HE TOOK THE CUP, AND GAVE THANKS,
AND GAVE IT TO THEM SAYING, DRINK YE ALL OF IT:
28. FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT,
WHICH IS SHEN FOR MANY FOR THIS RMISSION OF SINS.

PS:110-4 THE LORD HATH SWORN, AND WILL NOT


REPENT, THOU ARE A PRIEST FOR EVER AFTER THE
ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK.

MATH 26:65 THEN THE HIGH PRIEST RENT HIS CLOTHES,


SAYING HE HATH SPOKEN BLASPHEMY; WHAT FURTHER
NEED HVE WE OF WITNESSES? BEHOLD, NOW YE HAVE
HEARD HIS BLASPHEMY.

LEV 10:6 AND MOSES SAID UNTO AARON, AND UNTO


ELEAZAR AND UNTO ITHAMAR, HIS SONS, UNCOVER NOT
YOUR HEADS, NEITHER REND YOUR CLOTHES; LEST YE
DIE, AND LEST WRATH COME UPON ALL THE PEOPLE: BUT
LET YOUR BRETREN THE WHOLE HOUSE OF ISRAEL,
BEWAIL THE BURNING WHICH THE LORD HATH KINDLED.

LEV 21:10 AND HE THAT ISW THE HIGH RIEST AMONG


HIS BRETHREN, UPON WHOSE HED THE ANOINTING OIL
WAS POURED, AND THAT IS CONSECRATED TO PUT ON THE
GARMENTS, SHALL NOT UNCOVER HIS HEAD, NOR REND
HIS CLOTHES:

HEB 7:15-25 15.AND IT IS YET FAR MORE EVIDENT:


FOR THAT AFTER THE SIMLITUDE OF MELCHIZEDEK THERE
ARISETH ANOTHER PRIEST, 16. WHO IS MADE, NOT
AFTER THE LAW OF A CARNAL COMMANDMENT, BUT AFTER
THE POWER OF AN ENDLESS LIFE. 17. FOR HE
TESTYIFIETH, THOU ARE A PRIEST OFR EVER AFTER THE
ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK. 18. FOR THERE IS VERILY A
DISANNULLING OF THE COMMANDMENT GOING BEFORE FOR
THE WEAKNESS AND UNPROFITABLENESS THEREOF. 19.
FOR THE LAW MADE NOTHING PERFECT, BUT THE
BRINGING IN OF A BETTER HOPE WE DRAW NIGH UNTO
GOD. 20.AND INASMUCH AS NOT WITHOUT AN OATH HE WA
MADE PRIEST:21. FOR THOSE PRIESTS WERE MADE
WITHOUT AN OATH; BUT THIS WITH AN OATH BY HIM
THAT SAID UNTO HIM, THE LORD SWARE AND WILL NOT
REPENT, THOU ART A PRIEST FOR EVER AFTER THE
ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK: 22 BY SO MUCH WAS JESUS
MADE A SURETY OF A BETTER TESTAMENT. AND THEY
TRULY WERE MANY PRIESTS, BERCAUSE THEY WERE NOT
SUFFERED TO CONTINUE BY REASON OF DEATH: 24. BUT
THIS MAN, BECAUSE HE CONTINUETH EVER, HATH AN
UNCHANGEABLE PRIESTHOOD. 25. WHEREFORE HE IS BLE
ALSO TO SAVE THEM TO THE UTTERMOST THAT COME UNTO
GOD BY HIM, SEEING HE EVER LIVETH TO MAKE
INERCESSION FOR THEM.

SUMMARY:FROM THIS WE CAN SEE THAT THE LEVITICAL


PREISTHOOD WAS THE SECOND PRISTHOOD AND WAS
TEMPERARY AND SUSPENDED MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTHOOD
FROM THE TIME AARON WAS ANOITED TO THE TIME IN
WHICH CAIAPHAS RENT IS CLOTHES.IT MUST BE NOTED
THAT UNDER THE LEVITICAL PREISTHOON NO ONE EXCEPT
THE HIGH PRIEST HAS ACCESS TO OUR LORD. UNDER THE
MELCHIZEDEK ALL HAVE ACCESS TO OUR LORD THROUGH
OUR INTERSESSOR JESUS. THE WINE AND THE BREAD ARE
OUR TESTIMONY OF THE SACRIFICES CHRIST MADE FOR
US SO THAT WE MAY DWELL WITH HIM FOREVER.
DIVORCE

OLD TESTAMENT

GOD INSTUTES MARRAGE

GEN 2:18-25 18. AND THE LORD GOD SAID, IT IS NOT


GOOD THAT THE MAN SHOULD BE ALONE; I WILL MAKE
HIM AN HELP MEET FOR HIM. 19. AND OUT OF THE
GROUND THE LORD GOD FORMED EVERY BEAST OF THE
FIELD, AND EVERY FOWL OF THE AIR; AND BROUGH THEM
UNTO ADAM TO SEE WHAT HE WOULD CALL THEM: AND
WHATSOEVER ADAM CALLED EVERY LIVING CREATURE,
THAT WAS THE NAME THEREOF. 20.AND ADAM GAVE NAMES
TO ALL CATTLE, AND TO THE FOWL OF THE AIR, AND TO
EVERY BEAST OF THE FIELD; BUT FOR ADAM, THERE WAS
NOT FOUND AN HELP MEET FOR HIM. 21. AND THE LORD
GOD CAUSED A DEEP SLEEP TO FALL UPON ADAM, AND HE
SLEPT: AND HE TOOK ONE OF HIS RIBS, AND CLOSED UP
THE FLESH INSTEAD THEREOF; 22. AND THE RIB WHICH
THE LORD GOD HAD TAKEN FROM MAN, MADE HE A WOMAN,
AND BROUGHT HER UNTO THE MAN. 23. AND ADAM SAID
THIS IS NOW BONE OF MY BONES, FLESH OF MY FLESH:
SHE SHALL BE CALLED WOMAN, BECAUSE SHE WAS TAKEN
OUT OF MAN. 24. THEREFORE SHALL A MAN LEAVE HIS
FATHER AND HIS MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE UNTO HIS
WIFE: AND THEY SHALL BE ONE FLESH. 25. AND THEY
WERE BOTH NAKED THE MAN AND HIS WIFE, AND WERE
NOT ASHAMED.

LAW OF SELLING ONES DAUGHERS

EX 21:7-11 7. AND IF A MAN SELL HIS DAUGHTER TO


BE A MAIDSERVANT, SHE SHALL NOT GO OUT AS THE
MENSERVANTS DO. 8. IF SHE PLEASE NOT HER MASTER,
WHO HATH BETROTHED HER TO HIM SELF, THE SHALL HE
LET HERE BE REDEEMED: TO SELL HER UNTO A STRANGE
NATION HE SHALL HAVE NO POWER, SEEING HE HATH
DEALT DECEITFULLY WITH HER. 9 AND IF HE HAVE
BETHROTHED HER UNTO HIS SON, HE SHALL DEAL WITH
HER AFTER THE MANNER OF DAUGHTERS. 10. IF HE TAKE
HIM ANOTHER WIFE, HER FOOD, HER RAIMENT, AND HER
DUTY OF MARRIAGE SHALL HE NOT DIMINISH. 11 AND IF
HE DO NOT THESE THREE UNTO HER, THEN SHALL SHE GO
OUT FREE WITHOUT MONEY.

LAW CONCERNING CAPTIVE WOMEN

DUET 21:10-14 10. WHEN THOU GOEST FORTH TO WAR


AGAINST THINE ENEMIES, AND THE LORD THY GOD HATH
DELIVERED THEM INTO THINE HANDS, AND THOU HAST
TAKEN THEM CAPTIVE, 11. AND SEEST AMONG THE
CAPTIVES A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, AND HAST A DESIRE
UNTO HER THAT THOU WOULDEST HAVE HER TO THY WIFE;
12. THEN THOU SHALT BRING HER HOME TO THINE
HOUSE; AND SHE SHALL SHAVE HER HEAD, AND PARE HER
NAILS; 13. AND SHE SHALL PUT THE RAIMENT OF HER
CAPTIVITY FROM OFF HER, AND SHALL REMAIN IN THINE
HOUSE, AND BEWAIL HER FATHER AND HER MOTHER A
FULL MONTH: AND AFTER THAT THOU SHALT GO IN UNTO
HER, AND BE HER HUSBAND, AND SHE SHALL BE THY
WIFE. 14.AND IT SHALL BE IF THOU HAVE NO DELIGHT
IN HER, THEN THOU SHALT LET HER GO WITHER SHE
WILL; BUT THOU SHALT NOT SELL HER AT ALL FOR
MONEY, THOU SHALT NOT MAKE MERCHANDISE OF HER,
BECAUSE THOU HAST HUMBLED HER.

DENIED OF THOSE MAKING FALSE CLAMES

DUET 22:13-21 13. IF ANY MAN TAKE A WIFE, AND GO


IN UNTO HER, AND HATE HER, 14. AND GIVE OCCASIONS
OF SPEECH AGAINST HER, AND BRING UP AN EVIL NAME
UPON HER, AND SAY, I TOOK THIS WOMAN,AND WHEN I
CAME TO HER, I FOUND HER NOT A MAID: 15. THEN
SHALL THE FATHER OF THE DAMSEL, AND HER MOTHER,
TAKE AND BRING FORTH THE TOKENS OF THE DAMSEL'S
VIRGINITY UNTO THE ELDERS OF THE CITY IN THE
GATE: 16. AND THE DAMSEL'S FATHER SHALL SAY UNTO
THE ELDERS, I GAVE MY DAUGHTER UNTO THIS MAN TO
WIFE, AND HE HATETH HER; 17. AND, LO HE HATH
GIVEN OCCASIONS OF SPEECH AGAINST HER, SAYING, I
FOUND NOT THE DAUGHTER A MAID; AND YET THESE ARE
THE TOKENS OF MY DAUGHTER'S VIRGINITY. AND THEY
SHALL SPREAD THE CLOTH BEFORE THE ELDERS OF THE
CITY. 18. AND THE ELDERS OF THE CITY SHALL TAKE
THAT MAN AND CHASTISE HIM; 19.AND THEY SHALL
AMERCE HIM IN AN HUNDRED SHEKELS OF SILVER, AND
GIVE THEM UNTO THE FATHER OF THE DAMSEL, BECAUSE
HE HATH BROUGHT UP AN EVIL NAME UPON A VIRGIN OF
ISRAEL: AND SHE SHALL BE HIS WIFE; HE MAY NOT PUT
HER AWAYS ALL HIS DAYS. 20. BUT IF THIS THING BE
TRUE, AND THE TOKENS OF VIRGINITY BE NOT FOUND
FOR THE DAMSEL: 21. THEN THEY SHALL BRING OUT THE
DAMSEL TO THE DOOR OF HER FATHER'S HOUSE, AND THE
MEN OF HER CITY SHALL STONE HER WITH STONES THAT
SHE DIE: BECAUSE SHE HATH WROUGH FOLLY IN ISRAEL,
TO PLAY THE WHORE IN HER FATHER'S HOUSE: SO SHALT
THOU PUT EVIL AWAY FROM AMONG YOU.

WOMEN COMMITTING ADULTERY BE PUT TO DEATH

DEUT 22:22 22. IF A MAN BE FOUND LYING WITH A


WOMAN MARRIED TO AN HUSBAND, THEN THEY SHALL BOTH
OF THEM DIE, BOTH THE MAN THAT LAY WITH THE
WOMAN, AND THE WOMAN: SO SHALT THOU PUT AWAY EVIL
FROM ISRAEL.

THOSE SEDUCING A VIRGIN

DEUT 22:28-29 2. IF A MAN FIND A DAMSEL THAT IS A


VIRGIN WHICH IS NOT BETROTHED, AND LAY HOLD OF
HER, AND LIE WITH HER, AND THEY BE FOUND; 29.
THEN THE MAN THAT LAY WITH HER SHALL GIVE UNTO
THE DAMSEL'S FATHER FIFTY SHEKELS OF SILVER, AND
SHE SHALL BE HIS WIFE; BECAUSE HE HATH HUMBLED
HER, HE MAY NOT PUT HER AWAY ALL HIS DAYS.

DIVORCE WAS PERMITTED

DEUT 24:1-3 1.WHEN A MAN HATH TAKEN A WIFE, AND


MARRIED HER, AND IT COME TO PASS THAT SHE FIND NO
FAVOUR IN HIS EYES, BECAUSE HE HATH FOUND SOME
UNCLEANNESS IN HER: THEN LET HIM WRITE HER A BILL
OF DIVORCEMENT, AND GIVE IT IN HER HAND, AND SEND
HER OUT OF HIS HOUSE. 2. AND WHEN SHE IS DEPARTED
OUT OF HIS HOUSE, SHE MAY GO AND BE ANOTHER MAN'S
WIFE. 3. AND IF THE LATTER HUSBAND HATE HER, AND
WRITE HER A BILL OF DIVORCEMENT, AND GIVETH IT IN
HER HAND, AND SENDETH HER OUT OF HIS HOUSE; OR IF
THE LATTER HUSBAND DIE, WHICH TOOK HER TO BE HIS
WIFE;
DIVORCED MAY NOT GO BACK TO FIRST HUSBAND

DUET 24:4 4. HER FOMER HUSBAND, WHICH SENT HER


AWAY, MAY NOT TAKE HER AGAIN TO BE HIS WIFE,
AFTER THAT SHE IS DEFILED; FOR THAT IS
ABOMINATION BEFORE THE LORD: AND THOU SHALT NOT
CAUSE THE LAND TO SIN, WHICH THE LORD THY GOD
GIVETH THEE FOR AN INHERITANCE.

REQUIRED FOREIGN WIVES BE PUT AWAY

1. EZRA 10:1-20 1. NOW WHEN EZRA HAD PRAYED, AND


WHEN HE HAD CONFESSED, WEEPING AND CASTING
HIMELF DOWN BEFORE THE HOUSE OF GOD, THERE
ASSEMBLED UNTO HIM OUT OF LSRAEL A VERY GREAT
CONGREGATION OF MEN AND WOMEN AND CHILDREN: FOR
THE PEOPLE WEPT VERY SORE. 2. AND SHECHANIAH
THE SON OF JEHIEL, ONE OF THE SONS OF ELAM,
ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO EZRA. WE HAVE TRESPASSED
AGAINST OUR GOD, AND HAVE TAKEN STRANGE WIVES
OF THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND: YET NOW THERE IS A
HOPE IN ISRAEL CONCERING THIS THING. 3. NOW
THEREFORE LET US MAKE A COVENANT WITH OUR GOD
TO PUT AWAY ALL THE WIVES, AND SUCH AS ARE BORN
OF THEM, ACCORDIDNG TO THE CONUSEL OF MY LORD,
AND OF THOSE THAT TREMBLE AT THE COMMANDMENT OF
OUR GOD; AND LET IT BE DONE ACCORDING TO THE
LAW. 4. ARISE; FOR THIS MATTER BELONGETH UNTO
THEE: WE ALSO WILL BE WITH THEE: BE OF GOOD
COURAGE, AND DO IT.5. THEN AROSE EZRA AND MADE
THE CHIEF PRIESTS, THE LEVITES, AND ALL ISRAEL,
TO SWEAR THAT THEY SHOULD DO ACCORDING TO THIS
WORD. AND THEY SWARE. 6. THEN EZRA ROSE UP FROM
BEFORE THE HOUSE OF GOD, AND WENT INTO THE
CHAMBER OF JOHANAN THE SON OF ELIASHIB: AND
WHEN HE CAME THITHER, HE DID EAT NO BREAD, NOR
DRINK WATER: FOR HE MOURNED BECAUSE OF THE
TRANSGRESSION OF THEM THAT HAD BEEN CARRIED
AWAY. 7. AND THEY MADE PROCLAMATION THROUGHOUT
JUDAH AND JEUSALEM UNTO ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE
CAPTIVITY, THAT THEY SHOULD GATHER THEMSELVES
TOGETHER UNTO JERUSALEM; 8. AND THEY WHOSOEVER
WOULD NOT COME WITHIN THREE DAYS, ACCORDING TO
THE CONSEL OF THE PRINCES AND THE ELDERS, ALL
HIS SUBSTANCE SHOULD BE FORFITED,AND HIMSELF
SEPARATED FROM THE CONGREGATION OF THOSE THAT
HAD BEEN CARRIED AWAY. 9. THEN ALL THE MEN OF
JUDAH AND BENJAMIN GATHERED THEMSELVES TOGETHER
UNTO JERUSALEM WITHIN THREE DAYS. IT WAS THE
NINTH MONTH ON THE TWENTIETH DAY OF THE MONTH
AND ALL THE PEOPLE SAT IN THE STREET OF THE
HOUSE OF GOD, TREMBLING BECAUSE OF THIS MATTER,
AND FOR THE GREAT RAIN. 10. AND EZRA THE PRIEST
STOOD UP, AND SAID UNTO THEM, YE HAVE
TRANSGRESSED, AND HAVE TAKEN STRANGE WIVES, TO
INCREASE THE TRESPASS OF ISRAEL. 11. NOW
THERFORE MAKE CONFESSION UNTO THE LORD GOD OF
YOUR FATHERS, AND DO HIS PLEASURE: AND SEPARATE
YOURSELVES FROM THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND, AND
FROM THE STRANGE WIVES. 12. THEN ALL THE
CONGREGATION ANSWERED AND SAID WITH A LOUD
VOICE, AS THOU HAST SAID, SO MUST WE DO. 13.
BUT THE PEOPLE ARE MANY, AND IT IS A TIME OF
MUCH RAIN, AND WE ARE NOT ABLE TO STAND
WITHOUT, NEITHER IS THIS A WORK OF ONE DAY OR
TWO: FOR WE ARE MANY THAT HAVE TRANSGRESSED IN
THIS THING. 14. LET NOW OUR RULERS OF ALL THE
CONGREGATION, STAND AND LET ALL THEM WHICH HAVE
TAKEN STRANGE WIVES IN OUR CITIES COME AT
APPOINTED TIMES, AND WITH THEM THE ELDERS OF
EVERY CITY, AND THE JUDGES THEROF, UNTIL THE
FIERCE WRATH OF OUR GOD FOR THIS MATTER BE
TURNED FROM US. 15.ONLY JOHATHAN THE SON OF
ASAHEL AND JAHAZIAH THE SON OF TIKVAH WERE
EMPLOYED ABOUT THIS MATTER: AND MESHULLAM AND
SHABVBETHAI THE LEVITE HELPED THEM. 16. AND THE
CHILDREN OF THE CAPTIVITY DID SO. AND EZRA THE
PRIEST WITH CERTAIN CHIEF OF THE FATHERS, AFTER
THE HOUSE OF THEIR FATHERS, AND ALL OF THEM BY
THEIR NAMES, WERE SEPARATED AND SAT DOWN IN THE
FIRST DAY OF THE TENTH MONTH TO EXAMINE THE
MATTER. 17 AND THEY MADE AN END WITH ALL THE
MEN THAT HAD TAKEN STRANGE WIVES BY THE FIRST
DAY OF THE FIRST MONTH. 18. THE SONS OF JESHUA
THE SON OF JOZADAK, AND HIS BRETHERN; MAASEIAH
AND ELIEZER, AND JARIB, AND GEDALIAH. 19. AND
THEY GAVE THEIR HANDS THAT THEY WOULD PUT AWAY
THEIR WIVES; AND BEING GUILTY, THEY OFFERED A
RAM OF THE FLOCK FOR THEIR TREPASS.

STRANGE WIVES DONE AWAY WITH

EZRA 10:44 44. AND THESE HAD TAKEN STRANGE WIVES:


AND SOME OF THEM HAD WIVES BY WHOM THEY HAD
CHILDREN.

INTERMARRIAGE WITH OTHER RACES REBUKED

NEH 13: 23-31 23. IN THOSE DAYS ALSO SAW I JEWS


THAT HAD MARRIED WIVES OF ASHDOD, OF AMMON, AND
MOAB: 24. AND THE CHILDREN SPAKE HALF IN THE
SPEECH OF ASHDOD, AND COULD NOT SPEAK IN THE
JEWS' LANGUAGE, BUT ACCORDING TO THE LANGUAGE OF
EACH PEOPLE. 25. AND I CONTENDED WITH THEM, AND
CURSED THEM, AND SMOTE CERTAIN OF THEM, AND
PLUCKED OFF THEIR HAIR, AND MADE THEM SWARE BY
GOD, SAYING, YE SHALL NOT GIVE YOUR DAUGHTERS
UNTO THEIR SONS, NOR; TAKE THEIR DAUGHTERS UNTO
YOUR SONS, OR FOR YOURSELVES. 26. DID NOT SOLOMON
KING OF ISRAEL SIN BY THESE THINGS? YET AMONG
MANY NATIONS WAS THERE NO KING LIKE HIM, WHO WAS
BELOVED OF HIS GOD, AND GOD MADE HIM KING OVER
ALL ISRAEL: NEVERTHELESS EVEN HIM DID OUTLANDISH
WOMEN CAUSE TO SIN. 27. SHALL WE THEN HEARKEN
UNTO YOU TO DO ALL THIS GREAT EVIL TO TRANSGRESS
AGAINST OUR GOD IN MARRYING STRANGE WIVIES? 28.
AND ONE OF THE SONS OF JOIADA , THE SON OF
ELIASHIB THE HIGH PRIEST, WAS SON IN LAW TO
SANBALLAT THE HORONITE: THEREFORE I CHASED HIM
FROM ME. 29. REMEMBER THEM, O MY GOD, BECAUSE
THEY HAVE DEFILED THE PRIESTHOOD, AND THE
COVENANT OF THE PRIESTHOOD AND OF THE LEVITES.
30. THUS CLEANSED I THEM FROM ALL STRANGERS, AND
APPOINTED THE WARDS OF THE PRIESTS AND THE
LEVITES, EVERY ONE IN HIS BUSINESS; 31. AND THE
WOOD OFFERING, AT TIMES APPOINTED, AND FOR THE
FIRSTFRUITS. REMEMBER ME O MY GOD, FOR GOOD.

DISOBEDIENCE REQUIRES DIVORCE


ESTH 1:10-22 ON THE SEVENTH DAY, WHEN THE HEART
OF THE KING WAS MERRY WITH WINE, HE COMMANDED
MAHUMAN, BIZTHA, HARBONA, BIGTHA, AND ABAGTHA,
ZETHAR, AND CARCAS, THE SEVEN CHAMBERLAINS THAT
SERVED IN THE PRESENCE OF AHASUERUS THE KING. 11.
TO BRING VASHTI THE QUEEN BEFORE THE KING WITH
THE CROWN ROYAL, TO SHEW THE PEOPLE AND THE
PRINCES HER BEAUTY: FOR SHE WAS FAIR TO LOOK ON.
12. BUT HE QUEEN VASHTI REFUSED TO COME AT THE
KING'S COMMANDMENT BY HIS CHAMBERLAINS: THERFORE
WHAS THE KING VERY WROTH, AND HIS ANGER BURNED IN
HIM. 13. THEN THE KING SAID TO THE WISE MEN,
WHICH KNEW THE TIMES, FOR SO WAS THE KING'S
MANNER TOWARD ALL THAT KNEW LAW AND JUDGEMENT:
14. AND THE NEXT UNTO HIM WAS CARSHENA, SHETHAR,
ADMATHA, TARHISH, MERES, MARSENA, AND MEMUCAN,
THE SEVEN PRINCES OF PERSIA AND MEDIA, WHICH SAW
THE KING'S FACE, WHICH SAT THE FIRST IN THE
KINGDOM; 15. WHAT SHALL WE DO UNTO THE QUEEN
VASTHI ACCORDING TO LAW, BECAUSE SHE HATH NOT
PERFORMED THE COMMANDMENT OF THE KING AHASUERUS
BY THE CHAMBERLAINS? 16. AND MEMUCAN ANSWERED
BEFORE THE KING AND THE PRINCES, VASHTI THE QUEEN
HATH NOT DONE WRONG TO THE KING ONLY, BUT ALSO TO
ALL THE PRINCES, AND TO ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE
IN ALL THE PROVINCES OF THE KING AHASUERUS.
17.FOR THIS DEED OF THE QUEEN SHALL COME ABROAD
UNTO ALL WOMEN, SO THAT THEY SHALL DESPISE THEIR
HUSBANDS IN THEIR EYES, WHEN IT SHALL BE
REPORTED, THE KING AHASUERUS COMMANDED VASHTI THE
QUEEN TO BE BROUGHT IN BEFOE HIM, BUT SHE CAME
NOT 18.LIKEWISE SHALL THE LADIES OF PERSIA AND
MEDIA SAY THIS DAY UNTO ALL THE KING'S PRINCES,
WHICH HAVE HEARD OF THE DEED OF THE QUEEN. THUS
SHALL THERE ARISE TOO MUCH CONTEMPT AND WRATH.
19. IF IT PLEASE THE KING, LET THERE GO A ROYAL
COMMANDMENT FROM HIM, AND LET IT BE WRITTEN AMONG
THE LAWS OF THE PERSIANS AND THE MEDES, THAT IT
BE NOT ALTERED, THAT VASHTI COME NO MORE BEFORE
KING AHASUERUS; AND LET THE KING GIVE HER ROYAL
ESTATE UNTO ANOTHER THAT IS BETTER THAN SHE. 20.
AND WHEN THE KING'S DECREE WHICH HE SHALL MAKE
SHALL BE PUBLISHED THROUGHOUT ALL HIS EMPIRE, FOR
IT IS GREAT, ALL THE WIVES SHALL GIVE TO THEIR
HUSBANDS HONOUR, BOTH TO GREAT AND SMALL. 21. AND
THE SAYING PLEASED THE KING AND THE PRINCES; AND
THE KING DID ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF MEMUCAN:
22. FOR HE SENT LETTERS INTO ALL THE KING'S
PROVINCES, INTO EVERY PROVINCE ACCORDING TO THE
WRITING THEREOF, AND TO EVERY PEOPLE AFTER THEIR
LANGUAGE, THAT EVERY MAN SHOULD BEAR RULE IN HIS
OWN HOUSE. AND THAT IT SHOULD BE PUBLISHED
ACCORDING TO THE LANGUAGE OF EVERY PEOPLE.

GOD CALLS HIS WIFE TO REPENT:

ISA 50: 1-2 THUS SAITH THE LORD: WHERE IS THE


BILL OF YOUR MOTHER'S DIVORCEMENT, WHOM I HAVE
PUT AWAY? OR WHICH OF MY CREDITORS IS IT TO WHOM
I HAVE SOLD YOU? BEHOLD,FOR YOUR INQUITIES HAVE
YE SOLD YOURSELVES, AND FOR YOUR TRANSGRESSIONS
IS YOUR MOTHER PUT AWAY. 2. WHEREFORE, WHEN I
CAME, WAS THERE NO MAN/ WHEN I CALLED, WAS THERE
NOE TO ANSWER? IS MY HAND SHORTENED AT ALL, THAT
IT CANNOT REDEEM? OR HAVE I NO POWER TO DELIVER?
BEHOLD AT MY REBUKE I DRY UP THE SEA, I MAKE THE
RIVERS A WILDERNESS; THEIR FISH STINK,BECAUSE
THERE IS NO WATER, AND DIE FOR THIRST.

ONCE DEVORICED IT IS FINAL

JER 3:1 THEY SAY, IF A MAN PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, AND
SHE GO FROM HIM, AND BECOME ANOTHER MAN'S SHALL
HE RETURN UNTO HER AGAIN? SHALL NOT THAT LAND BE
GREATLY POLLUTED? BUT THOU HAS PLAYED THE HARLOT
WITH MANY LOVERS; YET RETURN AGAIN TO ME, SAITH
THE LORD.

ADULTERY CAUSE FOR DIVORCED

JER3:8 AND I SAW WHEN FOR ALL THE CAUSES WHEREBY


BLACKSLIDING ISRAEL COMMITTED ADULTERY I HAD PUT
HER AWAY, AND GIVEN HER A BILL OF DIVORCE; YET
HER TRECHERIOUS SISTER JUDAH FEARD NOT, BUT WENT
AND PLAYED THE HARLOT ALSO

A PROPHET CONCERN WITH WHOREDOM


HOS 2:1-23 1.SAY YE UNTO YOUR BRETHERN, AMMI; AND
TO YOUR SISTER, RUHAMAH. 2. PLEAD WITH YOUR
MOTHER, PLEAD: FOR SHE IS NOT MY WIFE, EITHER AM
I HAR HUSBAND: LET HER THEREFORE PUT AWAY HER
WHOREDOMS OUT OF HER SIGHT, AND HER ADULTERIES
FROM BETWEEN HERE BREASTS:3. LEST I STRIP HER
NAKED, AND MAKE HER AS A WILDERNESS, AND SET HER
LIKE A DRY LAND, AND SLAY HER WITH THIRST. 4. AND
I WILL NOT HAVE MERCY UPON HER CHILDREN; FOR THEY
BE THE CHILDREN OF WHOREDOMS. 5. FOR THEIR MOTHER
HATH PLAYED THE HARLOT: SHE THAT CONCEIVED THEM
HATH DONE SHAMEFULLY: FOR SHE SAID, I WILL GO
AFTER MY LOVERS,THAT GIVE ME MY BREAD AND MY
WATER, MY WOOL AND MY FLAX, MINE OIL AND MY
DRINK. 6. THEREFORE, BEHOLD, I WILL HEDGE UP THY
WAY WITH THORNS, AND MAKE A WALL, THAT SHE SHALL
NOT FIND HER PATHS. 7.AND SHE SHALL FOLLOW AFTER
HER LOVERS, BUT SHE SHALL NOT OVERTAKE THEM; AND
SHE SHALL SEEK THEM, BUT SHALL NOT FIND THEM:
THEN SHALL SHE SAY, I WILL GO AND RETURN TO MY
FIRST HUSBAND; FOR THEN WAS IT BETTER WITH ME
THAN NOW. 8. FOR SHE DID NOT KNOW THAT I GAVE HER
CORN, AND WINE, AND OIL, AND MULTIPLLIED HER
SILVER AND GOLD, WHICH THEY PREPARED FOR BAAL. 9.
THEREFORE WILL I RETURN, AND TAKE AWAY MY CORN IN
THE TIME THEROF, AND MY WINE IN THE SEASON
THEREOF, AND WILL RECOVER MY WOOL AND MY FLAX
GIVEN TO COVER HER NAKEDNESS. 10. AND NOW WILL I
DISCOVER HER LEWDNESS IN THE SIGHT OF HER LOVERS,
AND NONE SHALL DELIVER HER OUT OF MINE HAND. 11.
I WILL ALSO CAUSE ALL HER MIRTH TO CEASE, HER
FEAST DAYS, HER NEW MOONS, AND HER SABBATHS, AND
ALL HER SOLEMN FEASTS. 12. AND I WILL DESTROY HER
VINES AND HER FIG TREES, WHEREOF SHE HATH SAID,
THERE ARE MY REWARDS THAT MY LOVERS HAVE GIVEN
ME: AND I WILL MAKE THEM A FOREST, AND THE BESTS
OF THE FIELD SHALL EAT THEM. 13. AND I WILL VISIT
UPON HER THE DAYS OF BAALIM, WHERE IN SHE BURNED
INCENSE TO THEM, AND SHE DECKED HERSELF WITH HER
EARRINGS AND HER JEWELS, AND SHE WENT AFTER HER
LOVERS, AND FORGAT ME, SAITH THE LORD.
14.THEREFORE BEHOLD, I WILL ALLURE HER, AND BRING
HER INTO THE WILDERNESS, AND SPEAK CONFORTABLY
UNTO HER. 15. AND I WILL GIVE HER HER VINEYARDS
FROM THENCE, AND THE VALLEY OF ACHOR FOR A DOOR
OF HOpE: AND SHE SHALL SING THERE, AS IN THE DAYS
OF HER YOUTH, AND AS IN THE DAY WHEN SHE CAME UP
OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT. 16. AND IT SHALL BE AT
THAT DAY, SAITH THE LORD, THAT THOU SHALL CALL ME
ISHI, AND SHALL CALL ME NO MORE BAALI. 17. FOR I
WILL TAKE AWAY THE NAMES OF BAALIM OUT OF HER
MOUTH, AND THEY SHALL NO MORE BE REMEMBERED BY
THEIR NAME. 18. AND IN THAT DAY WILL I MAKE A
COVENANT FOR THEM WITH THE BEASTS OF THE FIELD,
AND WITH THE FOWLS OF HEAVEN, AND WITH THE
CREEPING THINGS OF THE GROUND: AND I WILL BREAK
THE BOW AND THE SWORD AND THE BATTLE OUT OF
THEEARTH, AND WILL MAKE THEM TO LIE DOWN SAFELY.
19. AND I WILL BETROTH THEE UNTO ME FOR EVER;
YEA, I WILL BETROTH THEE UNTO ME IN
RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND IN JUDGMENT AND IN LOVING
KINDNESS, AND IN MERCIES. 20.I WILL EVEN BETROTH
THEE UNTO ME IN FAITHFULNESS: AND THOU SHALT KNOW
THE LORD. 21. AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THAT
DAY, I WILL HEAR, SAITH THE LORD I WILL HEAR THE
HEAVENS, AND THEY SHALL HEAR THE EARTH; 22.AND
THE EARTH SHALL HEAR THE CORN, AND THE WINE, AND
THE OIL, AND THEY SHALL HEAR JEZREEL.23. AND I
WILL SOW HER UNTO ME IN THE EARTH; AND I WILL
HAVE MERCY UPON HER THAT HAD NOT OBTAINED MERCY;
AND I WILL SAY TO THEM WHICH WERE NOT MY PEOPLE,
THOU AT MY PEOPLE; AND THEY SHALL SAY, THOU ART
MY GOD.

WOMEN WHO LEAVE THEIR HUSBANDS

MIC 2:9 THE WOMEN OF MY PEOPLE HAVE YE CAST OUT


FROM THEIR PLESANT HOUSES; FROM THEIR CHILDREN
HAVE YE TAKEN AWAY MY GLORY FOREVER.

UNJUST REPROVED

MAL 2:14-16 14. YET YE SAY, WHEREFORE? BECAUSE


THE LORD HATH BEEN WITNESS BETWEEN THEE AND THE
WIFE OF THY YOUTH, AGAINST WHOM THU HAST DEALT
TREACHEROUSLY: YET IS SHE THY COMPANION, AND THE
WIFE OF THY COVENANT. 15. AND DID NOT HE MAKE
ONE? YET HAD HE THE RESIDUE OF THE SPIRIT. AND
WHEREFORE ONE? THAT HE MIGHT SEEK A GODLY SEED.
THEREFORE TAKE HEED TO YOUR SPIRIT, AND LET NONE
DEAL TREACHEROUSLY AGAINST THE WIFE OF HIS YOUTH.
16. FOR THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL,SAITH THAT HE
HATETH PUTTING AWAY: FOR ONE COVERETH VIOLENCE
WITH HIS GARMENT, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS:
THEREFORE TAKE HEED TO YOUR SPIRIT, THAT YE DEAL
NOT TREACHEROUSLY.

NEW TESTAMENT

DIVORCE ALLOWED BECAUSE OF ADULTERY

MATT 5:27-32 27. YE HAVE HEARD THAT IT WAS SAID


BY THEM OF OLD TIME, THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT
ADULTERY:. 28 BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT WHOSOEVER
LOOKETH ON A WOMAN TO LUST AFTER HER HASTH
COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH HER ALREADY IN HIS HEART.
29 AND IF THY RGHT EYE OFFEND THEE, PLUCK IT OUT,
AND CAST IT FROM THEE: FOR IT IS PROFITABLE FOR
THEE THAT ONE OF THY MEMBERS SHOULD PERISH, AND
NOT THAT THY WHOLE BODY SHOULD BE CAST INTO HELL.
30. AND IF THE RIGHT HAND OFFEND THEE, CUT IT
OFF, AND CAST IT FROM THEE: FOR IT IS PROFITABLE
FOR THEE THAT ONE OF THY MEMBERS SHOULD PERISH,
AND NOT THAT THY WHOLE BODY SHOULD BE CAST INTO
HELL. 31. IT HATH BEEN SAID, WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT
AWAY HIS WIFE, LET HIM GIVE HER A WRITING OF
DIVORCEMENT: 32 BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT
WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, SAVING FOR THE
CAUSE OF FORNICATION, CAUSETH HER TO COMMIT
ADULTERY: AND WHOSO EVER SHALL MARRY HER THAT IS
DIVORCED COMMITTETH ADULTERY.

CHRIST AND DIVORCE

MATT 19:3-9 THE PHARISEES ALSO CAME UNTO HIM,


TEMPTING HIM, AND SAYING UNTO HIM, IS IT LAWFUL
FOR A MAN TO PUT AWAY HIS WIFE FOR EVERY CAUSE?
4. AND HE ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, HAVE YE
NOT READ, THAT HE WHICH MADE THEM AT THE
BEGINNING MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 5. AND SAID,
FOR THIS CAUSE SHALL A MAN LEAVE FATHER AND
MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE: AND THEY
TWAIN SHALL BE ONE FLESH? 6. WHEREFORE THEY ARE
NO MORE TWAIN, BUT ONE FLESH. WHAT THEREFORE GOD
HATH JOINED TOGETHER, LET NOT MAN PUT ASUNDER. 7.
THEY SAY UNTO HIM, MOSES BECAUSE OF THE HARDNESS
OF YOUR HEARTS SUFFERED YOU TO PUT AWAY YOUR
WIVES: BUT FROM THE BEGINNING IT WAS NOT SO. 9.
AND I SAY UNTO YOU, WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS
WIFE, EXCEPT IT BE FOR FORNICATION, AND SHALL
MARRY ANOTHER, COMMITTETH ADULTERY: AND WHOSO
MARRIETH HER WHICH IS PUT AWAY DOTH COMMIT
ADULTERY.

CHRIST LAW OF DIVORCE

MARK 10:2-12 2. AND THE PHARISEES CAME TO HIM,


AND ASKED HIM, IS IT LAWFUL FOR A MAN TO PUT AWAY
HIS WIFE? TEMPTING HIM. 3. AND HE ANSWERED AND
SAID UNTO THEM, WHAT DID MOSES COMMAND YOU? 4.
AND THEY SAID MOSES SUFFERED TO WRITE A BILL OF
DIVORCEMENT, AND TO PUT HER AWAY. 5. AND JESUS
ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM, FOR THE HARDNESS OF
YOUR HEART HE WROTE YOU THIS PRECEPT. 6. BUT FROM
THE BEGINNING OF THE CREATION GOD MADE THEM MALE
AND FEMALE. 7. FOR THIS CAUSE SHALL A MAN LEAVE
HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; 8.
AND THEY TWAIN SHALL BE ONE FLESH: SO THEN THEY
ARE NO MORE TWAIN, BUT ONE FLESH. 9. WHAT
THERFORE GOD HATH JOINED TOGETHER, LET NOT MAN
PUT ASUNDER. 10. AND IN THE HOUSE HIS DISCIPLES
ASKED HIM AGAIN OF THE SAME MATTER. 11. AND HE
SAITH UNTO THEM, WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS
WIFE, AND MARRY ANOTHER, COMMITTETH ADULTERY
AGAINST HER. 12. AND IF A WOMAN SHALL PUT AWAY
HER HUSBAND, AND BE MARRIED TO ANOTHER, SHE
COMMITTETH ADULTERY.

WIFES SHOULD NOT BE DIVORCED


LK 16:18 WHOSOEVER PUTTETH AWAY HIS WIFE, AND
MARRIETH ANOTHER, COMMITTETH ADULTERY: AND
WHOSOEVER MARRIETH HER THAT IS PUT AWAY FROM HER
HUSBAND COMMITTETH ADULTERY:

WOMAN BOUND TO HUSBAND FOR LIFE

ROM 7:2-4 2. FOR THE WOMAN WHICH HATH AN HUSBAND


IS BOUND BY THE LAW TO HER HUSBAND SO LONG AS HE
LIVETH; BUT IF THE HUSBAND BE DEAD, SHE IS LOOSE
FROM THE LAW OF HER HUSBAND. 3. SO THEN IF WHILE
HER HUSBAND LIVETH, SHE BE MARRIED TO ANOTHER
MAN, SHE SHALL BE CALLED AN ADULTERESS: BUT IF
HER HUSBAND BE DEAD, SHE IS FREE FROM THAT LAW;
SO THAT SHE IS NO ADULTERESS, THOUGH SHE BE
MARRIED TO ANOTHER MAN. 4. WHEREFORE, MY
BRETHERN, YE ALSO ARE BECOME DEAD TO THE LAW BY
THE BODY OF CHRIST; THAT YE SHOULD BE MARRIED TO
ANOTHER, EVEN TO HIM WHO IS RAISED FROM THE DEAD,
THAT WE SHOULD BRING FORTH FRUIT UNTO GOD.

RECONCILLATION ENCOURGED

WIFE TO REMAIN UNMARRIED IF DEPARTED

1COR 7:1-141. NOW CONERNING THE THINGS WHEROF YE


WROTE UNTO ME: IT IS GOOD FOR A MAN NOT TO TOUCH
A WOMAN. 2. NEVERTHELESS, TO AVOID FORNICATION,
LET EVERY MAN HAVE HIS OWN WIFE, AND LET EVERY
WOMAN HAVE HER OWN HUSBAND. 3. LET THE HUSBAND
RENDER UNTO THE WIFE DUE BENEVOLENCE: AND
LIKEWISE ALSO THE WIFE UNTO THE HUSBAND. 4. THE
WIFE HATH NOT POWER OF HER OWN BODY, BUT THE
HUSBAND; AND LIKEWISE ALSO THE HUSBAND HATH NOT
POWER OF HIS OWN BODY, BUT THE WIFE. 5. DEFRAUD
YE NOT ONE THE OTHER, EXCEPT IT BE WITH CONSENT
FOR A TIME, THAT YE MAY GIVE YOURSELVES TO
FASTING AND PRAYER; AND COME TOGETHER AGAIN, THAT
SATAN TEMPT YOU NOT FOR YOUR INCONTINENCY. 6. BUT
I SPEAK THIS BY PERMISSION, AND NOT OF
COMMANDMENT. 7. FOR I WOULD THAT ALL MEN WERE
EVEN AS I MYSELF. BUT EVERY MAN HATH HIS PROPER
GIFT OF GOD, ONE AFTER THIS MANNER, AND ANOTHER
AFTER THAT. 8. I SAY THEREFORE TO THE UNMARRIED
AND WIDOWS, IT IS GOOD FOR THEM IF THEY ABIDE
EVEN AS I. 9.BUT IF THEY CANNOT CONTAIN, LET THEM
MARRY: FOR IS IS BETTER TO MARRY THAT TO BURN.
10. AND UNTO THE MARRIED I COMMAND, YET NOT I,
BUT THE LORD, LET NOT THE WIFE DEPART FROM HER
HUSBAND: 11. BUT AND IF SHE DEPART, LET HER
REMAIN UNMARRIED, OR BE RECONCILED TO HER
HUSBAND: AND LET NOT THE HUSBAND PUT AWAY HIS
WIFE. 12. BUT TO THE REST SPEAK I, NOT THE LORD:
IF ANY BROTHER HATH A WIFE THAT BELIEVETH NOT,
AND SHE BE PLEASED TO DWELL WITH HIM, LET HIM NOT
PUT HER AWAY. 13. AND THE WOMAN WHICH HATH AN
HUSBAND THAT BELIEVETH NOT, AND IF HE BE PLEASED
TO DWELL WITH HER, LET HER NOT LEAVE HIM. 14. FOR
THE UNBELIEVING HUSBAND IS SANCTIFIED BY THE
WIFE, AND THE UNBELIEVING WIFE IS SANCTIFIED BY
THE HUSBAND: ELSE WERE YOUR CHILDREN UNCLEAN; BUT
NOW ARE THEY HOLY.

UNBELIVER IS NOT UNDER BONDAGE

1COR 7:15-16 15. BUT IF THE UNBELIEVING DEPART,


LET HIM DEPART. A BROTHER OR A SISTER IS NOT
UNDER BONDAGE IN SUCH CASES: BUT GOD HATH CALL US
INTO PEACE. 16. FOR WHAT KNOWEST THOU, O WIFE,
WHETHER THOU SHALL SAVE THY HUSBAND? OR HOW
KNOWEST THOU, O MAN, WHETHER THOU SHALT SAVE THY
WIFE?

WIFE IS BOUND TO HUSBAND AS LONG AS HE LIVES

1COR 7:39 THE WIFE IS BOUND BY THE LAW AS LONG AS


HER HUSBAND LIVETH; BUT IF HER HYSBAND BE DEAD,
SHE IS AT LIBERTY TO BE MARRIED TO WHOM SHE WILL;
ONLY IN THE LORD
JUDGES CHAPTER ELEVEN

BACKGROUND:

JUDGES TAKES ITS TITLE FROM THE FACT THAT IT


RECORDS THE ACTIVITIES OF TWELVE MEN AND ONE
WOMAN, DESIGNATED AS JUDGES AND RAISED UP BY GOD
TO DELIVER ISRAEL IN TIMES OF DECLENSION AND
DISUNION AFTER JOSHUA'S DEATH. NO ONE WAS CAPABLE
OF SUCH LEADERSHIP AS JOSHUA HAD EXERCISED. THE
FOURFOLD CYCLE SO COMMON IN ISREAL'S HISTORY -
REBELLION (AGAINST GOD)RETRIBUTION (BY
GOD)REPENTANCE (BY ISRAEL) RESTORATION (BY
GOD)THROUGH JUDGES. THE JUDGES WERE CHOSEN FROM
DIFFERENT TRIBES. NOT ALL OF THEM EXERCISED
JURISDICTION OVER THE ENTIRE TERRITORY OF ISRAEL.

JUDGES CHAPTER 11

QUESTION: DID JEPHTHAH FULFILL HIS VOW OF VERSE


31?

V31 THEN IT SHALL BE THAT WHATSOEVER COMETH FORTH


OF THE DOORS OF MY HOUSE TO MEET ME, WHEN I
RETURN IN PEACE FROM THE CHILDREN OF AMMON SHALL
SURELY BE THE LORD'S AND I WILL OFFER IT UP FOR A
BURNT OFFERING.

WE WILL ANSWER THE QUESTION BY CONSIDERING:

1. THE MAN
2. HIS VOW
3. BURNT OFFERINGS
4. THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT
5. THE FIRES OF MOLECH

THE MAN JEPHTHAH

MIGHTY MAN OF VALOR

11:1 NOW JEPHTHAH, THE GILEADITE WAS A MIGHTY MAN


OF VALOR AND HE WAS THE SON OF AN HARLOT: AND
GILEAD BEGOT JEPHTHAH.
GILEAD HIS FATHER WAS OF THE TRIBE OF MANASSEH
SON OF JOSEPH.

NUM 26:28-29 28. THE SONS OF JOSEPH AFTER THEIR


FAMILES WERE MANASSEH AND EPHRAIM. V29. THE SONS
OF MANASSEH OF MACHIR, THE FAMILY OF THE
MACHIRITES AND MACHIR BEGOT GILEAD; OF GILEAD
COME THE FAMILY OF THE GILEADITES.

BORN OF A HARLOT (MOTHER NAME NOT RECORDED)

DEUT 23:2 A BASTARD SHALL NOT ENTER INO THE


CONGREGATION OF THE LORD; EVEN TO HIS TENTH
GENERATION SHALL HE NOT ENTER INTO THE
CONGREGATION OF THE LORD.

LEFT WITH NO INHERITANCE

JUDGES 11:2 AND GILEAD'S WIFE BORE HIM SONS; AND


HIS WIFE'S SONS GREW UP, AND THEY THRUST OUT
JEPHTHAH AND SAID UNTO HIM. THOU SHALL NOT
INHERIT IN OUR FATHER'S HOUSE; FOR THOU ART THE
SON OF A STRANGE WOMAN.

SARAH CAST OUT HAGAR AND HER SON

GEN 21:10 WHEREFORE SHE SAID UNTO ABRAHAM CAST


OUT THIS BONDWOMAN AND HER SON; FOR THE SON OF
THIS BONDWOMAN SHALL NOT BE HEIR WITH MY SON,
EVEN WITH ISAAC.

MADE CAPTAIN OF THE GILEADITE ARMY

V:6-8 6:AND THEY SAID UNTO JEPHTHAH, COME, AND


BE OUR CAPTAIN, THAT WE MAY FIGHT WITH THE
CHILDREN OF AMMON. V7:AND JEPHTHAH SAID UNTO THE
ELDERS OF GILEAD, DID NOT YE HATE ME AND EXPEL ME
OUT OF MY FATHER'S HOUSE? AND WHY ARE YE COME
UNTO ME NOW WHEN YE ARE IN DISTRESS? V8: AND THE
ELDERS OF GILEAD SAID UNTO JEPHTHAH, THEREFORE WE
TURN AGAIN TO THEE NOW, THAT THOU MAYEST GO WITH
US, AND FIGHT AGAINST THE CHILDREN OF AMMON AND
BE OUR HEAD OVER ALL THE INHABITANTS OF GILEAD.
JEPHTHAH MADE JUDGE OVER THE GILEADITES

V:9-10 AND JEPHTHAT SAID UNTO THE ELDERS OF


GILEAD, IF YE BRING ME HOME AGAIN TO FIGHT
AGAINST THE CHILDREN OF AMMON AND THE LORD
DELIVER THEM BEFORE ME, SHALL I BE YOUR HEAD.
10: AND THE ELDERS OF GILEAD SAID UNTO JEPHTHAH,
THE LORD BE WITNESS BETWEEN US, IF WE DO NOT SO
ACCORDING TO THY WORDS.

JEPHTHAH OPTS FOR PEACE WITH THE AMMON

V12 JEPHTHAH SENT MESSENGERS UNTO THE KING OF THE


CHILDREN OF AMMON SAYING, WHAT HAST THOU TO DO
WITH ME, THAT THOU ARE COME AGAINST ME TO FIGHT
IN MY LAND? V13: AND THE KING OF THE CHILDREN OF
AMMON ANSWERED UNTO THE MESSENGERS OF JEPHTHAH,
BECAUSE ISRAEL TOOK AWAY MY LAND, WHEN THEY CAME
UP OUT OF EGYPT FROM ARNON EVEN UNTO JABBOK, AND
UNTO THE JORDAN NOW THEREFORE RESTORE THOSE LANDS
AGAIN PEACEABLY. V26 WHILE ISREAL DWELT IN
HESHBON AND ITS TOWNS, AND IN AROER AND ITS TOWNS
AND IN ALL THE CITIES THAT ARE ALONG BY THE
BORDERS OF ARNON THREE HUNDRED YEARS? WHY,
THEREFORE, DID YE NOT RECOVER THEM WITHIN THAT
TIME? V27 WHEREFORE, I HAVE NOT SINNED AGAINST
THEE, BUT THOU DOEST ME WRONG TO WAR AGAINST ME;
THE LORD, THE JUDGE, BE JUDGE THIS DAY BETWEEN
THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND THE CHILDREN OF AMMON.
V28 HOWBEIT, THE KING OF THE CHILDREN OF AMMON
HEARKENED NOT UNTO THE WORDS OF JEPHTHAH WHICH HE
SENT HIM.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

NUM 21:23-24
AND SIHON WOULD NOT PERMIT ISRAEL TO PASS THROUGH
HIS BORDER;BUT SIHON GATHERED ALL HIS PEOPLE
TOGETHER, AND WENT OUT AGAINST ISRAEL INTO THE
WILDERNESS. AND HE CAME TO JAHAZ, AND FOUGHT
AGAINST ISREAL. V24 AND ISRAEL SMOTE HIM WITH THE
EDGE OF THE SWORD AND POSSESSED HIS LAND FROM
ARNON UNTO JABBOK EVEN UNTO THE CHILDREN OF
AMMON; FOR THE BORDER OF THE CHILDREN OF AMMON
WAS STRONG.

DEUT 23:3-4 AN AMMONITE OR MOABITE SHALL NOT


ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD; EVEN
TOTHEIR TENTH GENERATION SHALL THEY NOT ENTER
INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD FOREVER, V4
BECAUSE THEY MET YOU NOT WITH BREAD AND WITH
WATER IN THE WAY, WHEN YE CAME FORTH OUT OF
EGYPT; AND BECAUSE THEY HIRED AGAINST THEE BALAAM
THE SON OF BEOR, OF PETHOR OF MESOPOTAMIA TO
CURSE THEE.

JEPHTHAH WAS A FAITHFULL MAN OF GOD

V29 THEN THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD CAME UPON


JEPHTHAH,......

HEB:11:32 AND WHAT SHALL I MORE SAY FOR THE TIME


WOULD FAIL ME TO TELL OF GIDEON AND OF BARAK AND
OF SAMSON AND OF JEPHTHAH; OF DAVID ALSO AND
SAMUEL, AND OF THE PROPHETS,

JEPHTHAH'S VOW

V:30-31 AND JEPHTHAH VOWED A VOW UNTO THE LORD,


AND SAID, IF THOU SHALT WITHOUT FAIL DELIVER THE
CHILDREN OF AMMON INTO MINE HANDS, V31 THEN IT
SHALL BE THAT WHATSOEVER COMETH FORTH OF THE
DOORS OF MY HOUSE TO MEET ME, WHEN I RETURN IN
PEACE FOR THE CHILDREN OF AMMON SHALL SURELY BE
THE LORD'S AND I WILL OFFER IT UP FOR A BURNT
OFFERING.

JACOB VOW

GEN 28:20-21 AND JACOB VOWED A VOW, SAYING, IF


GOD WILL BE WITH ME, AND WILL KEEP ME IN THIS WAY
THAT I GO, AND WILL GIVE ME BREAD TO EAT, AND
RAINMENT TO PUT ON V21 SO THAT I COME AGAIN TO
MY FATHER'S HOUSE IN PEACE; THEN SHALL THE LORD
BE MY GOD:

SUMMARY OF THE MAN JEPHTHAH


JEPHTHAH BORN OF A HARLOT. (BORN OF THE FLESH GLA
4:23) CAST OUT OF HIS FATHER'S HOUSE. REJECTED BY
THE CITIZENS OF THE CITY IN WHICH HE LIVED. THEN
ASKED TO BE THEIR LEADER NOT ONLY THERE CAPTAIN
IN WAR BUT THEIR JUDGE IN PEACETIME. THE ONLY
REASON THEY WANTED HIM WAS BECAUSE HE WAS A
MIGHTY MAN OF VALOUR. THE GILEADITE'S WERE QUITE
PREPARED TO USE HIS ABILITIES TO PROTECT
THEMSELVES BUT NOT PREPARED TO ACCEPT HIM WITHIN
THE COMMUNITY WHEN THEY DID NOT NEED HIS
MILLITARY SKILLS. BECAUSE OF THEIR (GILEADITES)
CONDITION (IN SIN) THEY CHOSE TO ASK MAN FOR HELP
BEFORE THEY TURNED BACK TO GOD. IT IS INTERESTING
TO NOTE THAT THEY WERE SO BLINDED BY SIN THE
ELDERS WOULD NOT SEEK GUIDANCE FROM THE LORD.
ON THE OTHER HAND GOD FULL OF COMPASSION TOOK
THIS MAN (JEPHTHAH) FILLED HIM WITH HIS SPIRIT
AND DELIVERED THE PEOPLE FROM THE CHILDREN OF
AMMON. A STRIKING DIFFERENCE OF WHAT GOD SEES IN
A PERSON AND WHAT WE SEE IN EACH OTHER. WE LOOK
UP TO THE WELL HEELED AND LOOK DOWN TO THE LESS
FORTUNATE. JEPHTHAH WAS THE VICTIM OF
CIRCUMSTANCE BUT APPEARED TO HONOR THE LORD
SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY AN EXAMPLE OF ONE'S
FAITH BEING HONORED BY THE GRACE OF GOD.

JEPHTHAH'S VOW

V:30-31 AND JEPHTHAH VOWED A VOW UNTO THE LORD,


AND SAID, IF THOU SHALT WITHOUT FAIL DELIVER THE
CHILDREN OF AMMON INTO MINE HANDS, V31 THEN IT
SHALL BE THAT WHATSOEVER COMETH FORTH OF THE
DOORS OF MY HOUSE TO MEET ME, WHEN I RETURN IN
PEACE FOR THE CHILDREN OF AMMON SHALL SURELY BE
THE LORD'S AND I WILL OFFER IT UP FOR A BURNT
OFFERING.

VOWS OF A PERSON

LEV 27:2-4 SPEAK UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND


SAY UNTO THEM, WHEN A MAN SHALL MAKE A SPECIAL
VOW THE PERSONS SHALL BE FOR THE LORD BY THE
VALUATION V3 AND THE VALUATION SHALL BE OF THE
MALE FROM TWENTY YEARS OLD, EVEN UNTO SIXTY YEARS
OLD EVEN THY VALUATION SHALL BE FIFTY SHEKELS OF
SILVER, AFTER THE SHEKEL OF THE SANCTUARY. V4
AND IF IT BE A FEMALE THEN THY VALUATION SHALL BE
THIRTY SHEKELS.

LAWS OF VOWS

NUM 30:2 IF A MAN VOW A VOW UNTO THE LORD, OR


SWEAR AN OATH TO BIND HIS SOUL WITH A BOND, HE
SHALL NOT BREAK HIS WORD; HE SHALL DO ACCORDING
TO ALL THAT PROCEEDETH OUT OF HIS MOUTH

DEUT 23 WHEN THOU SHALT VOW A VOW UNTO THE LORD


THY GOD, THOU SHALT NOT BE SLACK TO PAY IT; FOR
THE LORD THY GOD WILL SURELY REQUIRE IT OF THEE,
AND IT WOULD BE SIN IN THEE

PAY THE VOW

PS 50:14 OFFER UNTO GOD THANKSGIVING, AND PAY THY


VOWS UNTO THE MOST HIGH,

THE IMPORTANCE IN MAKING A VOW

ECCL 5:V4-6 WHEN THOU VOWEST A VOW UNTO GOD DEFER


NOT TO PAY IT;FOR HE HATH NO PLEASURE IN FOOLS.
PAY THAT WHICH THOU HAST VOWED. V5 BETTER IS IT
THAT THOU SHOULDEST NOT VOW, THAN THAT THOU
SHOULDEST VOW AND NOT PAY. V6 SUFFER NOT THY
MOUTH TO CAUSE THY FLESH TO SIN; NEITHER SAY THOU
BEFORE THE ANGEL, THAT IT WAS AN ERROR. WHY
SHOULD GOD BE ANGRY AT THE VOICE, AND DESTROY THE
WORK OF THINE HANDS?
IT SEEMS LIKE MEN OF FAITH DO NOT MIND MAKING
VOWS AS LONG AS THE LORD DOES SOMETHING FOR THEM
FIRST. MAN PUTS CONDITIONS ON VOWS BECAUSE OF HIS
LACK OF FAITH YET THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT THESE
WERE MEN OF GREAT FAITH. JEPHTHAH UNDERSTOOD
EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING WHEN MAKING THE VOW BUT
DID NOT CONSIDER THE EFFECT OF HIS VOW. BY NOT
CONSIDERING WHAT HE WAS SAYING HE PUT HIMSELF IN
AN IMPOSSIBLE POSITION. ACCORDINGLY ECCL5:4-6
SHOWS THAT JEPHTHAHS VOW WOULD CAUSE SIN OF THE
FLESH BY NOT DOING AS HE HAD PROMISED. YET IT
WOULD BE A GREATER SIN IF JEPHTHAN DID NOT
FULLFILL HIS VOW. JEPHTHAHS DAUGHTER KNEW EXACT
WHAT WAS REQUIRED OF HER BECAUSE OF HER FATHER'S
FOOLISH VOW. YET BECAUSE OF THE LOVE SHE HAD FOR
HER FATHER SHE WAS PREPARED TO GIVE HER LIFE TO
HONOR HER FATHERS VOW. HOW MUCH MORE DOES JESUS
LOVE US BY DYING ON THE CROSS.

BURNT OFFERINGS

LAW OF BURNT OFFERING

LEV1:3 IF HIS OFFERING BE A BURNT SACRIFICE OF


THE HERD, LET HIM OFFER A MALE WITHOUT BLEMISH:
HE SHALL OFFER IT OF HIS OWN VOLUNTARY WILL AT
THE DOOR OF THE TABERNACLE OF THE CONGREGATION
BEFORE THE LORD.

LEV6:9 COMMAND AARON AND HIS SONS, SAYING, THIS


IS THE LAW OF THE BURNT OFFERING: IT IS THE BURNT
OFFERING, BECAUSE OF THE BURNING UPON THE ALTAR
ALL NIGHT UNTO THE MORNING, AND THE FIRE OF THE
ALTAR SHALL BE BURNING IN IT.

ALTARS FOR BURNT OFFERINGS

EX 20:24-25 AN ALTAR OF EARTH THOU SHALT MAKE


UNTO ME, AND SHALT SACRIFICE THEREON THY BURNT
OFFERINGS, AND THY PEACE OFFERINGS, THY SHEEP,
AND THINE OXEN; IN ALL PLACES WHERE I RECORD MY
NAME I WILL COME UNTO THEE AND I WILL BLESS THEE.
V25 AND IF THOU WILT MAKE ME AN ALTAR OF STONE,
THOU SHALT NOT BUILD IT OF HEWN STONE; FOR IF
THOU LIFT UP THY TOOL UPON IT, THOU HAST POLLUTED
IT.

SACRIFICE AND BURNT OFFERING NOT DESIRED

PS 51-16-19 FOR THOU DESIREST NOT SACRIFICE, ELSE


WOULD I GIVE IT; THOU DELIGHTEST NOT IN BURNT
OFFERINGS. V17 THE SACRIFICES OF GOD ARE A BROKEN
SPIRIT A BROKEN AND A CONTRITE HEART. O GOD THOU
WILT NOT DESPISE. V18 DO GOOD IN THY GOOD
PLEASURE UNTO ZION; BUILD THOU THE WALLS OF
JERUSALEM V19 THEN SHALT THOU BE PLEASED WITH THE
SACRIFICES OF REGHTEOUSNESS, WITH BURNT OFFERING
AND WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS; THEN SHALL THEY OFFER
BULLOCKS UPON THINE ALTER.

SUMMARY:

THE CREATURES ACCEPTABLE FOR SACRIFICE ARE FIVE:

1. THE BULLOCK. - TYPIFIES CHRIST AS THE PATIENT


AND ENDURING SERVANT (HEB 12:2-3) OBEDIENT UNTO
DEATH (ISA52:13-15)(PHIL 2:5-8)

2. THE SHEEP, OR LAMB, TYPIFIES CHRIST IN


UNRESISTING SELF-SURRENDER TO THE DEATH OF THE
CROSS (ISA 53:7 ACTS 8:32-35)

3. THE GOAT TYPIFIES THE SINNER (MT 25:33,41-46)


AND WHEN USED SACRIFICIALLY CHRIST AS NUMBERED
WITH THE TRANSGRESSORS (ISA. 53:12; LK 23;33) GOD
MADE HIM, WHO KNEW NO SIN TO BE SIN FOR US
(2COR5:21) THE SON OF GOD WAS MADE A CURSE FOR US
(GAL3:13) WHEN HE HUNG UPON THE CROSS.
4-5 THE TURTLE DOVE AND PIGEON, SYMBOLS OF
MOURNING INNOCENCE (ISA 38:14 59:11 MT 23:37 HEB
7:26) ARE ASSOCIATED WITH POVERTY IN LEV 5:7 12:8
AND SPEAK OF HIM WHO FOR OUR SAKE BECAME POOR
(LK9:58)STARTED WHEN HE GAVE UP HIS PREINCARNATE
GLORY AND ENDED IN THE SACRIFICE THROUGH WHICH WE
BECAME RICH (2COR8:9 PHIL 2:6-8) THE SACRIFICE OF
THE POOR MAN, CHRIST BECOMES THE POOR MAN'S
SACRIFICE (LK2:24 1TIM2:5-6)

THIS CLEARLY SHOWS THAT PEOPLE WERE NEVER


CONSIDERED TO BE USED AS A SACRIFICE TO THE LORD.
PEOPLE COULD BE DEDICATED TO LIFES' WORK OF THE
LORD AS SAMUEL WAS (1SAM 1:11) AND SHE VOWED A
VOW AND SAID O LORD OF HOSTS, IF THOU WILT INDEED
LOOK ON THE AFFLICTION OF THINE HANDMAID, AND
REMEMBER ME, AND NOT FORGET THINE HANDMAID, BUT
WILT GIVE UNTO THINE HANDMAID A MAN CHILD, THEN I
WILL GIVE HIM UNTO THE LORD ALL THE DAYS OF HIS
LIFE, AND THERE SHALL NO RAZOR COME UPON HIS
HEAD.) HANNAH THEN COMPLETED HER VOW IN (1SAM
1:28 THEREFORE ALSO I HAVE LENT HIM TO THE LORD;
AS LONG AS HE LIVETH HE SHALL BE LENT TO THE
LORD. AND SHE WORSHIPED THE LORD THERE.)

THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT

EX20:20:13 THOU SHALT NOT KILL.

ABRAHAM OFFERING OF ISAAC

GEN 22:10-12 AND ABRAHAM STRETCHED FORTH HIS


HAND, AND TOOK THE KNIFE TO SLAY HIS SON. V11 AND
THE ANGEL OF THE LORD CALLED UNTO HIM OUT OF
HEAVEN, AND SAID, ABRAHAM, ABRAHAM: AND HE SAID,
HERE AM I V12 AND HE SAID, LAY NOT THINE HAND
UPON THE LAD, NEITHER DO THOU ANYTHING UNTO HIM;
FOR NOW I KNOW THAT THOU FEAREST GOD, SEEING THOU
HAST NOT WITHHELD THY SON, THINE ONLY SON FROM
ME.

SUMMARY
THE VERB USED IN EX20:13 (THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT)
CAN ONLY MEAN MURDER AND ALWAYS INDICATES
INTENTIONAL SLAYING. IF THIS IS FALSE THEN WHY
DID GOD COMMAND STONING FOR SOME SINS SUCH AS
IDOLATORS DEUT 17:2-7 V2 IF THERE BE FOUND AMONG
YOU WITHIN ANY OF THY GATES WHICH THE LORD THY
GOD GIVETH THEE, MAN OR WOMAN WHO HATH WROUGHT
WICKEDNESS IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD THY GOD, IN
TRANSGRESSING HIS COVENANT, V3 AND HATH GONE AND
SERVED OTHER GODS, AND WORSHIPPED THEM, EITHER
THE SUN,OR MOON OR ANY OF THE HOST OF HEAVEN,
WHICH I HAVE NOT COMMANDED, V4 AND IT BE TOLD
THEE, AND THOU HAST HEARD OF IT, AND INQUIRED
DILIGENTLY, AND BEHOLD IT IS TRUE, AND THE THING
CERTAIN, THAT SUCH ABOMINATION IS WROUGHT IN
ISRAEL; V5 THEN SHALT THOU BRING FORTH THAT MAN
OR THAT WOMAN, WHO HATH COMMITTED THAT WICKED
THING, UNTO THY GATES, EVEN THAT MAN OR THAT
WOMAN AND SHALT STONE THEM WITH STONES, TILL THEY
DIE.
THE STONING WAS A CRUEL PUNISHMENT AS IT DID NOT
LET THE BLOOD FLOW FROM THE BODY THEREFORE THERE
WAS NO REMISSION OF SIN

(MT26:28) FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW


TESTAMENT, WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE
REMISSION OF SINS.

HEB 9:22 AND ALMOST ALL THINGS ARE BY THE LAW


PURGED WITH BLOOD AND WITHOUT SHEDDING OF BLOOD
IS NO REMISSION.

THEREFORE IF JEPHTHAH WAS TO OFFER HIS DAUGHTER


AS A BURNT SACRIFICE HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO KILL
HER FIRST AND THEN BURN HER ON THE ALTAR. THIS OF
COURSE IS COMPLETELY CONTRARY TO GOD'S LAW.

NOTE – THE NUMBER FIVE IN GOD'S NUMERICS MEANS


GRACE, THEREFORE ONE ANIMAL SACRIFICE COULD NOT
OFFER SALVATION BUT ALL IN TOTAL (5 ANIMALS)
REPRESENTED GODS GRACE. THESE OFFERINGS COVERED
THE SINS OF MAN. THE MORE PERFECT OFFERING WAS
CHRIST ON THE CROSS WHICH PAYS FOR THE SINS AND
REDEEMS MAN.

FIRE OF MOlECH

HUMAN SACRIFICES FORBIDDEN

LEV 20:2 AGAIN THOU SHALT SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF


ISRAEL, WHOSOEVER HE IS OF THE CHILDREN OF
ISRAEL, OR OF THE STRANGERS THAT SOJOURN IN
ISRAEL, WHO GIVETH ANY OF HIS SEED UNTO MOLECH,
HE SHALL SURELY BE PUT TO DEATH; THE PEOPLE OF
THE LAND SHALL STONE HIM WITH STONES.

GOD CONDEMMS HUMAN SACRIFICES

DEUT 12:31 THOU SHALT NOT DO SO UNTO THE LORD THY


GOD FOR EVERY ABOMINATION TO THE LORD, WHICH HE
HATETH, HAVE THEY DONE UNTO THEIR GODS. FOR EVEN
THEIR SONS AND THEIR DAUGHTERS THEY HAVE BURNED
IN THE FIRE TO THEIR GODS.
GOD'S WARNING AGAINSTS THE FIRES OF MOLECH

LEV 18:21AND THOU SHALT NOT LET ANY OF THY SEED


PASS THROUGH THE FIRE TO MOLECH NEITHER SHALT
THOU PROFANE THE NAME OF THY GOD:I AM THE LORD

SPIRITISM FORBIDDEN BY GOD

DEUT 18:10 THERE SHALL NOT BE FOUND AMONG YOU


ANYONE WHO MAKETH HIS SON OR HIS DAUGHTER PASS
THROUGH THE FIRE, OR WHO USETH DIVINATION, OR AN
OBSERVER OF TIMES, OR AN ENCHANTER, OR A WITCH,

SUMMARY:
HOW THEN CAN JEPHTHAH JUSTIFY SACRIFICING HIS
DAUGHTER ON THE ALTAR?
IF JEPHTHAH WAS TO OFFER HIS DAUGHTER AS A HUMAN
SACRIFICE HE WOULD HAVE POLLUTED THE ALTAR OF GOD
AND WOULD HAVE VIOLATED THE LAW AS HANDED DOWN TO
MOSES.

LEV 27:28 NOTWITHSTNDING, NO DEVOTED THING, THAT


A MAN SHALL DEVOTE UNTO THE LORD OF ALL THAT HE
HATH, BOTH OF MAN AND BEAST, AND OF THE FIELD OF
HIS POSSESSION, SHALL BE SOLD OR REDEEMED; EVERY
DEVOTED THING IS MOST HOLY UNTO THE LORD

CHAPTER ELEVEN SUMMARY:

COULD THIS BE CONSIDERED A SPECIAL VOW AS


EXPLAINED IN LEV 27:2-4 AND THE VALUATION OF
JEPHTHAH'S DAUHTER WAS TO BE OFFERED UP AS THE
SACRIFICE?

LEV 27:2-4 SPEAK UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND


UNTO THEM, WHEN A MAN SHALL MAKE A SPECIAL VOW
THE PERSONS SHALL BE FOR THE LORD BY THE
VALUATION V3 AND THE VALUATION SHALL BE OF THE
MALE FROM TWENTY YEARS OLD, EVEN UNTO SIXTY YEARS
OLD EVEN THY VALUATION SHALL BE FIFTY SHEKELS OF
SILVER, AFTER THE SHEKEL OF THE SANCTUARY. V4
AND IF IT BE A FEMALE THEN THY VALUATION SHALL BE
THIRTY SHEKELS.
LEV7:16 BUT IF THE SACIFICE OF HIS OFFERING BE A
VOW OR A VOLUNTARY OFFERING, IT SHALL BE EATEN
THE SAME DAY THAT HE OFFERETH HIS SACRIFICE; AND
ON THE NEXT DAY ALSO THE REMINDER OF IT SHALL BE
EATEN:

THIS CLEARLY SHOWS THAT SACIFICES WERE TO BE OF


ANIMALS AND THEN THE SACFRICE WAS TO BE CONSUMED
THE SAME DAY.

LEV: 22:18-19 V18 SPEAK UNTO AARON AND TO HIS


SONS, AND UNTO ALL THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, AND
SAY UNTO THEM, WHOSOEVER HE IS OF THE HOUSE OF
ISRAEL, OR OF THE SOJOURNERS IN ISRAEL, WHO WILL
OFFER HIS OBLATION FOR ALL HIS VOWS, AND FOR ALL
HIS FREEWILL OFFERINGS, WHICH THEY WILL OFFER
UNTO THE LORD FOR A BURNT OFFERING; V19 YE SHALL
OFFER AT YOUR OWN WILL A MALE WITHOUT BLEMISH, OF
THE OXEN OR THE SHEEP, OR OF THE GOATS.

IT WOULD THERFORE NOT BE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD TO


OFFER HIS DAUGHTER UP FOR A BURNT OFFERING TO THE
LORD.THIS CLEARLY SHOWS IT MUST BE A MALE THAT IS
OFFERED TO THE LORD OF THE OXEN SHEEP OR GOAT.
NOT A HUMAN FEMALE!

JUD 11:31 THEN IT SHALL BE THAT WHATSOEVER COMETH


FORTH OF THE DOORS OF MY HOUSE TO MEET ME, WHEN I
RETURN IN PEACE FROM THE CHILDREN OF AMMON SHALL
SURELY BE THE LORD'S.

JUD 11:36-39 V36 AND SHE SAID UNTO HIM, MY


FATHER, IF THOU HAS OPENED THY MOUTH UNTO THE
LORD DO TO ME ACCORDING TO THAT WHICH HATH
PROCEEDED OUT OF THY MOUTH, FORASMUCH AS THE LORD
HATH TAKEN VENGENANCE FOR THEE OF THINE ENEMIES
EVEN OF THE CHILDREN OF AMMON.

V37 AND SHE SAID UNTO HER FATHER, LET THIS THING
BE DONE FOR ME: LET ME ALONE TWO MONTHS, THAT I
MAY GO UP AND DOWN UPON THE MOUNTAINS AND BEWAIL
MY VIRGINITY, I AND MY COMPANIONS
V38 AND HE SAID, GO. AND HE SENT HER AWAY FOR TWO
MONTHS; AND SHE WENT WITH HER COMPANIONS, AND
BEWAILED HER VIRGINITY UPON THE MOUNTAINS.

V39 AND IT CAME TO PASS, AT THE END OF TWO


MONTHS, THAT SHE RETURNED UNTO HER FATHER, WHO
DID WITH HER ACCORDING TO HIS VOW WHICH HE HAD
VOWED; AND SHE KNEW NO MAN. AND IT WAS A CUSTOM
IN ISRAEL,

THIS PASSAGE CLEARLY INDICATES THAT JEPHTHAH,S


DAUGHTER WAS DEDICATED TO THE LORD AS A VIRGIN
AND PROBABLY SERVED IN THE TEMPLE IN SOME
CAPACITY.

VERSE 40 OF CHAPTER 11 TENDS TO INDICATE THAT THE


DAUGHTERS OF ISRAEL CELEBRATED THE VIRGINITY OF
JEPHTHAH'S DAUGHTER RATHER THAN CELEBRATE HER
SLAUGHTER ON THE ALTAR OF GOD.

JUD 11:40 THEN THE DAUGHTERS OF ISRAEL WENT


YEARLY TO CELEBRATE THE DAUGHTER OF JEPHTHAH THE
GILEADITE FOUR DAYS IN A YEAR .

NOTE – THE NUMBER FOUR IN GOD'S NUMERIC MEANS


CREATION. IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE THAT THE DAUGHTERS
OF ISRAEL WERE CELEBRATING GOD'S CREATION WITH
THE ONSET OF LIFE THROUGH BIRTH FROM A VIRGIN.

I BELIEVE NOW WE CAN SAFELY ASSUME THAT


JEPHTHAH'S DAUGHER WAS DEDICATED(LENT) TO THE
LORD TO HIS GLORY.
KING SAUL

QUESTION WAS KING SAUL SAVED?

WE WILL LOOK AT THE LIFE OF KING SAUL TO


DETERMINE THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION. IT MUST BE
REMEMBERED THERE IS NO CLEAR CUT ANSWER, BUT
UNDERSTANDING THE PRINCIPLES OF SALVATION WE WILL
BE ABLE TO DRAW A CONCLUSION TO THE QUESTION.

SAULS' LIFE ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF SAMUEL.

GOD CHOOSE SAUL TO BE KING

1 SAM 9:16
TOMORROW ABOUT THIS TIME I WILL SEND THEE A MAN
OUT OF THE LAND OF BENJAMIN, AND THOU SHALT
ANOINT HIM TO BE CAPTAIN OVER MY PEOPLE, BECAUSE
THEIR CRY IS COME UNTO ME.

SAUL DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THE LORD CHOSE HIM.


THE BENJAMITE WERE THE SMALLEST TRIBE IN ISRAEL

1 SAM 9:21
V21 AND SAUL ANSWERED AND SAID, AM NOT I A
BENJAMITE, OF THE SMALLEST OF THE TRIBES OF
ISRAEL, AND MY FAMILY THE LEAST OF ALL THE
FAMILIES OF THE TRIBE OF BENJAMIN? WHY, THEN,
SPEAKEST THOU SO TO ME?

BENJAMITES WERE MIGHTY WARRIORS

JUD 20:15-16
V15 AND THE CHILDREN OF BENJAMIN WERE NUMBERED AT
THAT TIME OUT OF THE CITIES TWENTY AND SIX
THOUSAND MEN WHO DREW SWORD, BESIDE THE
INHABITANTS OF GIBEAH, WHO WERE NUMBERED SEVEN
HUNDRED CHOSEN MEN. V16 AMONG ALL THIS PEOPLE
THERE WERE SEVEN HUNDRED CHOSENMEN LEFTHAND3ED;
EVERY ONE COULD SLING STONES AT AN HAIR BREATH,
AND NOT MISS.

1 CHR 12:1-2
V1 NOW THESE ARE THEY WHO CAME TO DAVID AT
ZIKLAG, WHILE HE YET RESTRICTED HIMSELF BECAUSE
OF SAUL, SON OF KISH; AND THEY WERE AMONG THE
MIGHTY MEN, HELPERS IN THE WAR. V2 THEY WERE
ARMED WITH BOWS AND COULD USE BOTH THE RIGHT HAND
AND THE LEFT IN HURLING STONES AND SHOOTING
ARROWS OUT OF A BOW EVEN OF SAUL'S BRETHREN OF
BENJAMIN

HE WAS ANOINTED PRIVATELY BY SAMUEL

1 SAN 10:1
THEN SAMUEL TOOK A VIAL OF OIL, AND POURED IT
UPON HIS HEAD, AND KISSED HIM, AND SAID IS IT NOT
BECAUSE THE LORD HATH ANOINTED THEE TO BE CAPTAIN
OVER HIS INHERITANCE?

THE LORD'S CHOSEN ONE WHO WOULD APPEAL TO ISRAEL

1 SAM 9:2
AND HE HAD A SON, WHOSE NAME WAS SAUL, A CHOICE
YOUNG MAN, AND HANDSOME; AND THERE WAS NOT AMONG
THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL A MORE HANDSOME PERSON
THAN HE; FROM HIS SHOULDERS AND UPWARD HE WAS
TALLER THAN ANY OF THE PEOPLE

SAUL INSTALLED AS KING PUBLICLY

1 SAM 10:24
AND SAMUEL SAID TO ALL THE PEOPLE, SEE YE HIM
WHOM THE LORD HATH CHOSEN, THAT THERE IS NONE
LIKE HIM AMONG ALL THE PEOPLE? AND ALL THE PEOPLE
SHOUTED, AND SAID, GOD SAVE THE KING.

SAUL HID FROM ISRAEL BECAUSE HE DID NOT WANT TO


BE KING

1 SAM 10:21
WHEN HE HAD CAUSED THE TRIBE OF BENJAMIN TO COME
NEAR BY THEIR FAMILIES, THE FAMILY OF MATRI WAS
TAKEN, AND SAUL, THE SON OF KISH, WAS TAKEN: BUT
WHEN THEY SOUGHT HIM, HE COULD NOT BE FOUND.

SAUL NOT LIKED BY ALL


1 SAM 10:27
BUT CERTAIN WORTHLESS FELLOWS SAID, HOW SHALL
THIS MAN SAVE US? AND THEY DESPISED HIM, AND
BROUGHT HIM NO PRESENTS. BUT HE HELD HIS PEACE.

WAS IN THE FIELD TENDING THE HERD WHEM MESSENGERS


CAME LOOKING FOR HIM

1SAM 11:5
AND BEHOLD, SAUL CAME AFTER THE HERD OUT OF THE
FIELD: AND SAUL SAID, WHAT AILETH THE PEOPLE THAT
THEY WEEP? AND THEY TOLD HIM THE TIDINGS OF THE
MEN OF JABESH

THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAME UPON SAUL

1SAM 11:6
AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAME UPON SAUL WHEN HE
HEARD THOSE TIDINGS, AND HIS ANGER WAS KINDLED
GREATLY.

SAUL DEFEATS THE AMMONITES

1SAM 11:11
AND IT WAS SO ON THE MORROW THAT SAUL PUT THE
PEOPLE IN THREE COMPANIES; AND THEY CAME INTO THE
MIDST OF THE HOST IN THE MORNING WATCH, AND SLEW
THE AMMONITES UNTIL THE HEAT OF THE DAY. AND IT
CAME TO PASS, THAT THEY WHO REMAINED WERE
SCATTERED, SO THAT TWO OF THEM WERE NOT LEFT
TOGETHER.

SAUL REINSTALLED AS KING PUBLICLY

1 SAM 11:15
AND ALL THE PEOPLE WENT TO GILGAL; AND THERE THEY
MADE SAUL KING BEFORE THE LORD IN GILGAL, AND
THERE THEY SACRIFICED SACRIFICES OF PEACE
OFFERINGS BEFORE THE LORD, AND THERE SAUL AND ALL
THE MEN OF ISRAEL REJOICED GREATLY.

ISRAEL'S WICKEDNESS FOR ASKING FOR KING


1 SAM 12:17
IS IT NOT WHEAT HARVEST TODAY? I WILL CALL UNTO
THE LORD, AND HE SHALL SEND THUNDER AND RAIN THAT
YE MAY PRECEIVE AND SEE THAT YOUR WICKEDNESS IS
GREAT, WHICH YE HAVE DONE IN THE SIGHT OF THE
LORD, IN ASKING FOR YOURSELVES A KING.

SAUL INTRUDED INTO PRIEST'S OFFICE AND IS


REJECTED BY GOD.

1 SAM 13:9
AND SAUL SAID, BRING HITHER A BURNT OFFERING TO
ME, AND PEACE OFFERING AND HE OFFERED THE BURNT
OFFERING.

SAUL DID NOT KEEP THE LORDS' COMMANDMENTS

1 SAM 13:13
AND SAMUEL SAID TO SAUL, THOU HAST DONE
FOOLISHLY: THOU HAST NOT KEPT THE COMMANDMENT OF
THE LORD THY GOD, WHICH HE COMMANDED THEE; FOR
NOW WOULD THE LORD HAVE ESTABLISHED THY KINGDOM
UPON ISRAEL FOREVER.

1 SAM 15:11
IT REPENTETH ME THAT I HAVE SET UP SAUL TO BE
KING; FOR HE IS TURNED BACK FROM FOLLOWING ME,
AND HATH NOT PERFORMED MY COMMANDMENTS. AND IT
GRIEVED SAMUEL, AND HE CRIED UNTO THE LORD ALL
NIGHT.

1 SAM 15:23
FOR REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT, AND
STUBBORNESS IS AS INIQUITY AND IDOLATRY. BECAUSE
THOU HAST REJECTED THE WORD OF THE LORD, HE HAST
ALSO REJECTED THEE FROM BEING KING

KINGDOM TAKEN AWAY FROM SAUL

1 SAM 13:14
BUT NOW THY KINGDOM SHALL NOT CONTINUE. THE LORD
HATH SOUGHT HIM A MAN AFTER HS OWN HEART, AND THE
LORD HATH COMMANDED HIM TO BE CAPTAIN OVER HIS
PEOPLE BECAUSE THOU HAS NOT KEPT THAT WHICH THE
LORD COMMANDED THE

ISRAELS' SIN SAUL REMORSEFUL

1SAM 14:31-33 V31 AND THEY SMOTE THE PHILISTINES


THAT DAY FROM MICHMASH TO AIJALON; AND THE PEOPLE
WERE VERY FAINT.V32 AND THE PEOPLE FLEW UPON THE
SPOIL, AND TOOK SHEEP, AND OXEN AND CALVES, AND
SLEW THEM ON THE GROUND; AND THE PEOPLE DID EAT
THEM WITH THE BLOOD. V33 THEN THEY TOLD SAUL,
SAYING, BELOLD, THE PEOPLE SIN AGAINST THE LORD,
IN THAT THEY EAT WITH THE BLOOD. AND HE SAID, YE
HAVE TRANSGRESSED; ROLL A GREAT STONE UNTO ME
THIS DAY.

SAUL TELLS HIS PEOPLE TO SIN NO MORE

1 SAM 14:34
AND SAUL SAID, DISPERSE YOURSELVES AMONG THE
PEOPLE, AND SAY UNTO THEM BRING ME HERE EVERY MAN
HIS OX, AND EVERY MAN HIS SHEEP, AND SLAY THEM
HERE, AND EAT; AND SIN NOT AGAINST THE LORD IN
EATING WITH THE BLOOD. AND ALL THE PEOPLE BROUGHT
EVERY MAN HIS OX WITH HIM THAT NIGHT, AND SLEW
THEM THERE.

SAUL'S GREAT VICORIES

1 SAM 14:47, 48
V47 SO SAUL TOOK THE KINGDOM OVER ISRAEL, AND
FOUGHT AGAINST ALL HIS ENEMIES ON EVERY SIDE
AGAINST MOAB, AND AGAINST EDOM, AND AGAINST THE
KINGS OF ZOBAH, AND AGAINST THE PHILISTINES;AND
WHITHERSOEVER HE TURNED HIMSELF, HE VEXED THEM
V48 AND HE GATHERED AN HOST, AND SMOTE THE
AMALEKITES AND DELIVERED ISRAEL OUT OF THE HANDS
OF THEM THAT SPOILED THEM.

SAUL TO DESTROY THE AMALEKITES.


1 SAM 15:3 NOW GO AND SMITE AMALEK, AND UTTERLY
DESTROY ALL THAT THEY HAVE, AND SPARE THEM NOT;
BUT SLAY BOTH MAN AND WOMAN, INFANT AND SUCKLING,
OX AND SHEEP, CAMEL AND ASS.

SAUL SPARES THE KENITES: NUM 24:21, JUD1:16, JUD


4:11-22 1CHR:2:55

1 SAM 15:6
AND SAUL SAID UNTO THE KENITES, GO, DEPART, GET
YOU DOWN FROM AMONG THE AMALEKITES LEST I DESTROY
YOU WITH THEM; FOR YE SHOWED KINDNESS TO ALL THE
CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, WHEN THEY CAME UP OUT OF
EGYPT. SO THE KENITES DEPARTED FROM AMONG THE
AMALEKITES.

SAULS' DISOBIDENCE

1 SAM 15:9
BUT SAUL AND THE PEOPLE SPARED AGAG, AND THE BEST
OF THE SHEEP, AND OF THE OXEN, AND ALL THAT WAS
GOOD, AND WOULD NOT UTTERLY DESTROY THEM; BUT
EVERYTHING THAT WAS VILE AND REFUSE, THAT THEY
DESTROYED UTTERLY.

SAMUEL REBUKES SAUL

1 SAM 15:18-23
V18 AND THE LORD SENT THEE ON A JOURNEY, AND
SAID, GO AND UTTERLY DESTROY THE SINNERS, THE
AMALEKITES, AND FIGHT AGAINST THEM UNTIL THEY BE
CONSUMED. V19 WHY, THEN, DIDST THOU NOT OBEY THE
VOICE OF THE LORD, BUT DIDST FLY UPON THE SPOIL,
AND DIDST EVIL IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD? V20 AND
SAUL SAID UNTO SAMUEL, YEA, I HAVE OBEYED THE
VOICE OF THE LORD, AND HAVE GONE THE WAY WHICH
THE LORD SENT ME, AND HAVE BROUGHT AGAG, THE KING
OF AMALEK AND HAVE UTTERLY DESTROYED THE
AMALEKITES. V21 BUT THE PEOPLE TOOK OF THE SPOIL,
SHEEP AND OXEN, THE CHIEF OF THE THINGS WHICH
SHOULD HAVE BEEN UTTERLY DESTROYED, TO SACRIFICE
UNTO THE LORD THY GOD IN GILGAL, V22 AND SAMUEL
SAID, HATH THE LORD AS GREAT DELIGHT IN BURNT,
OFFERINGS AND SACRIFICES, AS IN OBEYING THE VOICE
OF THE LORD? BEHOLD, TO OBEY IS BETTER THAN
SACRIFICE, AND TO HEARKEN THAN THE FAT OF
RAMS.V23 FOR REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF
WITCHCRAFT, AND STUBBORNNESS IS AS INIQUITY AND
IDOLATRY. BECAUSE THOU HAST REJECTED THE WORD OF
THE LORD, HE HATH ALSO REJECTED THEE FROM BEING
KING.

SAUL ASKED FOR FORGIVENESS

1 SAM 15:24,25
V24 AND SAUL SAID UNTO SAMUEL, I HAVE SINNED; FOR
I HAVE TRANSGRESSED THE COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD,
AND THE WORDS, BECAUSE I FEARED THE PEOPLE AND
OBEYED THEIR VOICE. V25 NOW, THEREFORE, I PRAY
THEE, PARDON MY SIN, AND TURN AGAIN WITH ME, THAT
I MAY WORSHIP THE LORD.

SAUL LOSES HIS KINGDOM

1 SAM 15:26
AND SAMUEL SAID UNTO SAUL, I WILL NOT RETURN WITH
THEE; FOR THOU HAST REJECTED THE WORD OF THE
LORD, AND THE LORD HATH REJECTED THEE FROM BEING
KING OVER ISRAEL.

SAUL CONFESSES TO SIN AND WORSHIPS THE LORD

1 SAM 15:30
THEN HE SAID, I HAVE SINNED; YET HONOR ME NOW, I
PRAY THEE BEFORE THE ELDERS OF MY PEOPLE, AND
BEFORE ISRAEL AND TURN AGAIN WITH ME, THAT I MAY
WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD.

SAMUEL MOURNED FOR SAUL'S

1 SAM 15:35
AND SAMUEL CAME NO MORE TO SEE SAUL UNTIL THE DAY
OF HIS DEATH; NEVERTHELESS, SAMUEL MOURNED FOR
SAUL. AND THE LORD REPENTED THAT HE HAD MADE SAUL
KING OVER ISRAEL.

SAMUEL ANOINTS DAVID AS KING


1 SAMUEL 16:13
THEN SAMUEL TOOK THE HORN OF OIL, AND ANOINTED
HIM IN THE MIDST OF HIS BRETHREN; AND THE SPIRIT
OF THE LORD CAME UPON DAVID FROM THAT DAY ONWARD
SO SAMUEL ROSE UP AND WENT TO RAMAH.

SAUL IS VEXED BY AN EVIL SPIRIT

1SAM16:14
BUT THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD DEPARTED FROM SAUL,
AND AN EVIL SPIRIT FROM THE LORD TROUBLED HIM.

EVIL SPIRIT COMES UPON SAUL


1 SAM 18:10
AND IT CAME TO PASS ON THE MORROW THAT THE EVIL
SPIRIT FROM GOD CAME UPON SAUL, HE PROPHESIED IN
THE MIDST OF THE HOUSE; AND DAVID PLAYED WITH HIS
HANDS AS AT THE OTHER TIMES; AND THERE WAS A
JAVELIN IN SAUL'S HAND.

SAUL KNEW THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD HAD DEPARTED


FROM HIM

1 SAM 18:12
AND SAUL WAS AFRAID OF DAVID, BECAUSE THE LORD
WAS WITH HIM, AND WAS DEPARTED FROM SAUL.

SAUL WAS DEVIOUS IN THE MANNER IN WHICH HE TRIED


TO HAVE DAVID KILLED.

1 SAM; 18:25
AND SAUL SAID , THUS SHALL YE SAY TO DAVID, THE
KING DESIRETH NOT ANY DOWRY, BUT AN HUNDRED
FORESKINS OF THE PHILISTINES, TO AVENGE OF THE
KING'S ENEMIES. BUT SAUL THOUGHT TO MAKE DAVID
FALL BY THE HAND OF THE PHILISTINES.

SAUL HARKENS UNTO JONATHAN

1 SAM 19: 5,6


FOR HE DID PUT HIS LIFE IN HIS HAND, AND SLEW THE
PHILISTINE, AND THE LORD WROUGHT A GREAT
SALVATION FOR ALL ISRAEL. THOU SAWEST IT, AND
DIDST REJOICE; WHY, THEN, WILT THOU SIN AGAINST
INNOCENT BLOOD, TO SLAY DAVID WITHOUT A CAUSE? V6
AND SAUL HEARKENED UNTO THE VOICE OF JONATHAN AND
SAUL SWORE, AS THE LORD LIVETH, HE SHALL NOT BE
SLAIN.

SAUL TROUBLED BY EVIL SPIRIT

1 SAM 19: 9,10


AND THE EVIL SPIRIT FROM THE LORD WAS UPON SAUL,
AS HE SAT IN HIS HOUSE WITH HIS JAVELIN IN HIS
HAND; AND DAVID PLAYED WITH HIS HAND. V10 AND
SAUL SOUGHT TO SMITE DAVID EVEN TO THE WALL WITH
THE JAVELIN, BUT HE SLIPPED AWAY OUT OF SAUL'S
PRESENCE; AND HE SMOTE THE JAVELIN INTO THE WALL,
AND DAVID FLED, AND ESCAPED THAT NIGHT.

SAUL SLAYS A PRIEST BY DOEG

1 SAM 22:18
AND THE KING SAID TO DOEG, TURN THOU, AND FALL
UPON THE PRIESTS, AND DOEG, THE EDOMITE, TURNED
AND HE FELL UPON THE PRIESTS, AND SLEW ON THE DAY
FOURSCORE AND FIVE PERSONS WHO DID WEAR A LINEN
EPHOD.

DAVID SPARES SAULS' LIFE

1 SAM 24: 6,7

AND HE SAID UNTO HIS MEN, THE LORD FORBID THAT I


SHOULD DO THIS THING UNTO MY MASTER, THE LORD'S
ANOINTED. TO STRETCH FORTH MINE HAND AGAINST HIM
SEEING HE IS THE ANOINTED OF THE LORD V7 SO DAVID
RESTRAINED HIS SERVANTS WITH THESE WORDS, AND
PREMITTED THEM NOT O RISE AGAINST SAUL BUT SAUL
ROSE UP OUT OF THE CAVE, AND WENT ON HIS WAY.

DAVID AFFIRMS SAUL'S APPOINTMENT AS KING

1 SAM 24:10
BEHOLD, THIS DAY THINE EYES HAVE SEEN HOW THAT
THE LORD HAD DELIVERED THEE TODAY INTO MINE HAND
IN THE CAVE; AND SOME BADE ME KILL THEE, BUT MINE
EYE SPARED THEE, AND I SAID, I WILL NOT PUT FORTH
MINE HAND AGAINST MY LORD; FOR HE IS THE LORD'S
ANOINTED.

SAUL ADMITS HIS GUILT

1 SAM 26:21
THEN SAID SAUL I HAVE SINNED: RETURN, MY SON
DAVID; FOR I WILL NO MORE DO THEE HARM BECAUSE MY
SOUL WAS PRECIOUS IN THINE EYES THIS DAY. BEHOLD,
I HAVE PLAYED THE FOOL, AND HAVE ERRED
EXCEEDINGLY.

SAUL CONSULTS THE WITCH OF EN-DOR

1 SAM 28:7
THEN SAID SAUL UNTO HIS SERVANTS, SEEK ME A WOMAN
WHO IS A MEDIUM, THAT I MAY GO TO HER, AND
INQUIRE OF HER. AND HIS SERVANTS SAID TO HIM
BEHOLD, THERE IS A WOMAN WHO IS A MEDIUM AT EN-
DOR.

DEATH OF SAUL.

1 SAUL 31:4-6
THEN SAID SAUL UNTO HIS ARMOR BEARER, DRAW THY
SWORD, AND THRUST ME THROUGH WITH IT, LEST THESE
UNCIRCUMCISED COME AND THRUST ME THROUGH, AND
ABUSE ME. BUT HIS ARMOR-BEARER WOULD NOT; FOR HE
WAS VERY MUCH AFRAID. THEREFORE SAUL TOOK A
SWORD, AND FELL UPON IT. V5AND WHEN HIS ARMOR-
BEARER SAW THAT SAUL WAS DEAD, HE FELL LIKEWISE
UPON HIS SWORD, AND DIED WITH HIM.

SUMMARY:

WHEN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL ASKED FOR A KING IT


DISPLEASED OUR LORD.(1SAM 8:7 - AND THE LORD
SAID UNTO SAMUEL HEARKEN UNTO THE VOICE OF THE
PEOPLE IN ALL THAT THEY SAY UNTO THEE; BUT THEY
HAVE REJECTED ME, THAT I SHOULD NOT REIGN OVER
THEM. OUR LORD SUBMITTED TO ISRAELS' REQUEST
AFTER HE TOLD THEM WHAT WOULD HAPPEN THROUGH
SAMUEL. (1 SAM 8:11 AND HE SAID, THIS WILL BE THE
MANNER OF THE KING WHO SHALL REIGN OVER YOU: HE
WILL TAKE YOUR SONS, AND APPOINT THEM FOR
HIMSELF, FOR HIS CHARIOTS AND TO BE HIS HORSEMEN;
AND SOME SHALL RUN BEFORE HIS CHARIOTS. V12 AND
HE WILL APPOINT FOR HIM SELF CAPTAINS OVER
THOUSANDS, AND CAPTAINS OVER FIFTIES; AND WILL
SET THEM TO PLOW HIS GROUND AND TO REAP HIS
HARVEST, AND TO MAKE HIS INSTRUMENTS OF WAR, AND
INSTRUMENTS OF HIS CHARIOTS. V13 AND HE WILL TAKE
YOUR DAUGHTERS TO BE CONFECTIONARIES AND TO BE
COOKS, AND TO BE BAKERS. V14 AND HE WILL TAKE
YOUR FIELDS AND YOUR VINEYARDS, AND YOUR OLIVE
YARDS, EVEN THE BEST OF THEM, AND GIVE THEM TO
HIS SERVANTS. V15 AND HE WILL TAKE THE TENTH OF
YOUR SEED, AND OF YOUR VINEYARDS, AND GIVE TO HIS
OFFICERS, AND TO HIS SERVANTS, V16AND HE WILL
TAKE YOUR MENSERVANTS, AND YOUR MAIDSERVANTS, AND
YOUR GOODLIEST YOUNG MEN, AND YOUR ASSES, AND PUT
THEM TO HIS WORK V 17 HE WILL TAKE THE TENTH OF
YOUR SHEEP; AND YE SHALL BE HIS SERVANTS. V18 AND
YE SHALL CRY OUT IN THAT DAY BECAUSE OF YOUR KING
WHOM YE SHALL HAVE CHOSEN; AND THE LORD WILL NOT
HEAR YOU IN THAT DAY. V19 NEVERTHELESS, THE
PEOPLE REFUSED TO OBEY THE VOICE OF SAMUEL; AND
THEY SAID NAY, BUT WE WILL HAVE A KING OVER US.
IT APPEARS THAT GOD USED SAUL AS AN EXAMPLE AS TO
HOW A KING WOULD ACT BECAUSE OF OUR HUMAN
DESIRES. SAUL WAS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF OUR SINFUL
NATURE AND SHOWING THE TRAITS THAT SEPERATED MAN
FROM HIS CREATOR. SAUL WAS PICKED BECAUSE HIS
OUTWARD APPEARANCE WOULD PLEASE THE CHILDREN OF
ISRAEL THEREBY SHOWING THE MARKED DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN US AND GOD, WE SEEING THE OUTWARDS
APPEARANCE AND GOD LOOKS WITHIN US. SAUL DID NOT
WANT TO BE KING AND EVEN ARGUED WITH SAMUEL AND
USED HIS HERITAGE TO REASON WITH SAMUEL.SAUL ALSO
HID WHEN HE WAS TO BE INSTALLED AS KING. WHEN
THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL NEEDED THIER KING HE WAS
FOUND OUT IN A FIELD TENDING HIS HERD. THERE WAS
NO CHANGE TO SAULS LIFE UNTIL THE SPIRIT OF THE
LORD DECENDED UPON HIM. YET IT MATTERED NOT THAT
HE WAS THE LEAST IN HIS TRIBE FOR WITH GOD
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE LK 18:27 AND HE SAID, THE
THINGS WHICH ARE IMPOSSIBLE WITH MEN ARE POSSIBLE
WITH GOD. SAULS' LIFE AS KING WAS A TRAGIC
FAILURE EACH TIME GIVEN A TASK TO ACCOMPLISH HE
FELL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. YET GOD DID NOT
TAKE SAULS KINGDOM AWAY FROM HIM, EVEN THOUGH
SAMUAL ANNOINTED DAVID, SAUL REMAINED THE LEADER
OF THE NATION ISRAEL UNTIL HIS DEATH. AFTER DAVID
WAS ANNOINTED THE LORD VEXED SAUL WITH AN EVIL
SPIRIT PROVOKING HIM TO TRY AND KILL DAVID. THIS
VEXING OF SAUL HAD A THREE FOLD PURPOSE. FIRSTLY
IT CONFIRMED TO SAUL THAT THE SPIRIT OF OF LORD
HAD LEFT HIM. SECONDLY IN SHOWED THAT GOD WAS
STILL CONTENDING FOR SAULS' SOUL. THIRDLY IT
SEPARATED DAVID FROM SAUL. SEVERAL TIMES
THROUGHOUT SAULS' LIFE HE AMMITTED HIS SINFUL
NATURE AND APPEARED WILLING TO REPENT YET WAS
UNABLE TO DO SO WITHOUT THE GRACE OF GOD. SAULS'
LIFE IS A PERFECT REFLECTION OF THE NATION
ISRAEL'S AND OUR SINFUL NATURE. IT IS ALSO A
PICTURE OF OUR LOVING GOD'S DESIRE FOR ALL HIS
CHILDREN TO BE HOLY. WE KNOW THAT GOD WILL NEVER
LEAVE US. DUET 31:6 BE STRONG AND OF GOOD
COURAGE, FEAR NOT, NOR BE AFRAID OF THEM: FOR THE
LORD THY GOD HE IT IS WHO DOTH GO WITH THEE; HE
WILL NOT FAIL THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE. HEB 13:5
LET YOUR MANNER OF LIFE BE WITHOUT COVETOUSNESS,
AND BE CONTENT WITH SUCH THINGS AS YE HAVE; FOR
HE HATH SAID I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE
THEE. FROM THIS WE CAN SAY THAT SAUL WAS SAVED,
HIS ONLY FAILURES WERE THOSE THAT ARE COMMITTED
BY ALL MANKIND. HIS GUILT LED TO ADMISSION OF
GUILT AND HE SOUGHT FORGIVNESS. THIS IS THE BASIS
FOR OUR ASSURANCE OF SAUL'S AND OUR SALVATION.
OUR RESPONSIBILITY IS TO RUN A GOOD RACE AND OUR
LORD WILL CARRY US OVER THE FINISH LINE.
PREDESTINE

IT IS NOT THE INTENT OF THIS PAPER TO DISCUSS


CALVINISM OR ARMINIANS. I WILL CONFINE MY
THOUGHTS TO PREDESTINATION, FOREKNOWLEDGE AND
ELECTION.

QUESTION: IS MANKIND PREDESTINED TO GO TO HEAVEN?

PREDESTINATE MEANS – TO MARK OUT OR DETERMINE


BEFOREHAND.

FOREKNOWLEDGE MEANS – GOD'S PRIOR, DETERMINATIVE


KNOWLEDGE OF ALL FUTURE EVENTS.

ELECTION MEANS – TO CHOOSE

SCRIPTURE VERSES;

PREDESTINATE

ROM: 8:29,30 FOR WHOM HE DID FOREKNOW, HE ALSO


DID PREDESTINATE TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF
HIS SON THAT HE MIGHT BE THE FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY
BRETHREN. V30 MOVEOVER, WHOM HE DID PREDESTINATE,
TO THEM HE ALSO CALLED; AND WHOM HE CALLED, THEM
HE ALSO JUSTIFIED; AND WHOM HE JUSTIFIED, THEM HE
ALSO GLORIFIED.

OUR LORD FORKNOWS EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING. THIS


WOULD SUGGEST THAT EVERY ONE WAS PREDESTINATED.IF
EVERYONE WAS PREDESTINATED BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN
WE HAVE NO CHOICE (ELECTION) IN THE MATTER AND
WHATEVER WE DO IS CAUSED BY OUR PREDESTINATION.
WE DO NOT MAKE A CHOICE IN ACCEPTING SALVATION OR
NOT ACCEPTING WE JUST DO WHAT GOD HAS DECIDED
FOR US TO DO BEFORE TIME BEGAN. IF EVERYONE IS
PREDESTINATED THEN ALL ARE CALLED ALL ARE
JUSTIFIED AND ALL ARE GLORIFIED. THIS IS NOT THE
PLAN OF SALVATION. WE HAVE TO MAKE AN OVERT ACT
TO ACCEPT JESUS AS OUR SAVIOUR AND BE WILLING TO
FOLLOW HIM IN ALL WE DO. WHEN WE FAIL OUR LORD
HAS A PLAN IN PLACE TO PICK US UP AND SET US ON
THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW AGAIN.
1 COR: 2:7 BUT WE SPEAK THE WISDOM OF GOD IN A
MYSTERY, EVEN THE HIDDEN WISDOM, WHICH GOD
ORDAINED BEFORE THE AGES UNTO OUR GLORY;

EPH 1:5 HAVING PREDESTINATED US UNTO THE ADOPTION


OF SONS BY JESUS CHRIST TO HIMSELF, ACCORDING TO
THE GOOD PLEASURE OF HIS WILL

EPH: 1:11 IN WHOM, ALSO WE HAVE OBTAINED AN


INHERITANCE, BEING PREDESTINATED ACCORDING TO
PURPOSE OF HIM WHO WORKETH ALL THINGS AFTER THE
COUNSEL OF HIS OWN WILL,

FOREKNOWLEDGE

JOB: 23: 13,14 BUT HE IS OF ONE MIND, AND WHO CAN


TURN HIM? AND WHAT HIS SOUL DESIRETH, EVEN THAT
HE DOETH. V14 FOR HE PERFORMETH THE THING THAT IS
APPOINTED FOR ME; AND MANY SUCH THINGS ARE WITH
HIM

PSA: 139 :1-24

JER: 1:5 BEFORE I FORMED THEE IN THE WOMB, I KNEW


THEE; AND BEFORE THOU CAMEST FORTH OUT OF THE
WOMB, I SANCTIFIED THEE, AND I ORDAINED THEE A
PROPHET UNTO THE NATIONS.

ACTS 2:23 HIM, BEING DELIVERED BY THE DETERMINATE


COUNSEL AND FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD, YE HAVE TAKEN,
AND BY WICKED HANDS HAVE CRUCIFIED AND SLAIN;

ACTS: 15:18 KNOWN UNTO GOD ARE ALL HIS WORKS FROM
THE BEGINNING OF THE AGE.

1 PET: 1:20 WHO VERILY WAS FOREORDAINED BEFORE


THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, BUT WAS MANIFEST IN
THESE LAST TIMES FOR YOU,

ELECTION
JN: 15:16 YE HAVE NOT CHOSEN ME, BUT I HAVE
CHOSEN YOU AND ORDAINED YOU THAT YE SHOULD GO AND
BRING FORTH FRUIT, AND THAT YOUR FRUIT SHOULD
REMAIN; THAT WHATEVER YE SHALL ASK OF THE FATHER
IN MY NAME, HE MAY GIVE IT YOU

ROM: 9:11 FOR THE CHILDREN BEING NOT YET BORN,


NEITHER HAVING DONE ANY GOOD OR EVIL, THAT THE
PURPOSE OF GOD ACCORDING TO ELECTION MIGHT STAND,
NOT OF WORKS, BUT OF HIM THAT CALLETH.

1 PET: 1:2 ELECT ACCORDING TO THE FOREKNOWLEDGE


OF GOD, THE FATHER, THROUGH SANCTIFICATION OF THE
SPIRIT, UNTO OBEDIENCE AND SPRINKLING OF THE
BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST: GRACE UNTO YOU AND PEACE,
BE MULTIPLIED.

SUMMARY:

BECAUSE THE LORD HAS FORKNOWLEDGE DOES NOT MEAN


THAT WE ARE PREDESTINED TO ACT THE WAY WE DO. WE
ARE PREDESTINED TO DO IT BECAUSE OF GODS'
FOREKNOWLEDGE. THE ISSUE IS ELECTION (CHOICE)
WHEN WE ENCOUNTER A CIRCUMSTANCE OUR LORD KNOWS
WHAT WE WILL CHOOSE BECAUSE OF HIS FOREKNOWLEDGE.
THIS THEN BECOMES OUR PREDESTINATION. IT IS GODS'
CHOICE TO ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN AS A PART OF HIS
GREATER PLAN FOR SALVATION. IF MAN DID NOT KNOW
EVIL THEN THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO REASON FOR
CHRIST TO DIE ON THE CROSS, AND WE WOULD NOT BE
ABLE TO CHOOSE THE WAY IN WHICH WE LIVE OUR LIFE.
IT WOULD NOT BE OF FREE WILL (WE WOULD BE IN
BONDAGE) THEREFORE MANKIND WOULD HAVE BEEN
CREATED AND ACT IN ACCORDANCE WITH WHAT IS GOOD
HAVING NO OTHER CHOICE. IT IS THE SOVEREIGN
RIGHT OF GOD TO CHOOSE WHO FROM AMONG HIS CREATED
BEINGS SHALL BE GRANTED A POSITION OF SPECIAL
FAVOR, AS IN THE CASE OF JEREMIAH:

(JER 1:5)BEFORE I FORMED THEE IN THE WOMB I KNEW


THEE; AND BEFORE THOU CAMEST FORTH OUT OF THE
WOMB, I SANCTIFIED THEE AND I ORDAINED THEE A
PROPHET UNTO THE NATIONS.
NOTE THAT JEREMIAH WAS A PROPHET TO ALL NATIONS
NOT JUST ISRAEL. THIS THEN SPEAKS OF SALVATION TO
ALL THAT WILL LISTEN AND DO AS GOD COMMANDS. IF
WE WERE PREDESTINED TO DO GOOD THERE WOULD BE NO
REASON FOR THE PROPHETS TO CHALLENGE THE
ISRAELITES WHEN THEY DISOBEYED GODS' LAWS OR FOR
CHRIST TO BE OFFERED AS OUR SACRIFICE FOR
REDEMPTION AS REVEALED IN LUKE:

LK: 19:10 FOR THE SON OF MAN IS COME TO SEEK AND


TO SAVE THAT WHICH WAS LOST.

WE WERE LOST BECAUSE SIN ENTERED INTO THE WORLD


THROUGH ADAM.

ROM: 5:12 WHEREFORE, AS BY ONE MAN SIN ENTERED


INTO THE WORLD, AND DEATH BY SIN, AND SO DEATH
PASSED UPON ALL MEN, FOR ALL HAVE SINNED.

WE WOULD NOT BE LOST IF ONLY THE TREE OF LIFE WAS


IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN. OUR LORD PUT TWO TREES
THERE SO WE COULD HAVE A CHOICE (ELECTION) BUT
HAD A PLAN OF HOW TO RECONCILE US BACK TO HIM
AFTER SIN ENTERED THE WORLD.

JH: 6:12 WHEN THEY WERE FILLED, HE SAID UNTO HIS


DISCIPLES, GATHER UP THE FRAGMENTS THAT REMAIN,
THAT NOTHING BE LOST.

THIS BEING AN EXAMPLE TO HIS DISCIPLES TO GO OUT


INTO TO THE WORLD AND BRING BACK TO THE FOLD THAT
WHICH IS LOST. SAYING NONE SHOULD BE LOST. WE
WOULD NOT BE LOST IF WE WERE PREDESTINED.

IF WE WERE PREDESTINED THE QUESTION MUST BE ASKED


WHY DID THE LORD ALLOW EVIL INTO THIS WORLD?
GODS' PLAN IS TO LET US HAVE A CHOICE (ELECTION)
AND THEN PROVIDE A WAY TO SALVATION WHEN WE FAIL
TO KEEP HIS WILL.

1COR:10:13 THERE HATH NO TEMPTATION TAKEN YOU BUT


SUCH AS IS COMMON TO MAN; BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL,
WHO WILL NOT PERMIT YOU TO BE TEMPTED ABOVE THAT
YE ARE ABLE, BUT WILL, WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO
MAKE THE WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO
BEAR IT.

HOW CAN WE SAY WE ARE PREDESTINED TO CHOOSE SIN


WHEN OUR LORD HAS PROVIDE A WAY FOR US NOT TO
SIN? ALLOWING US TO CHOOSE EVIL DOES NOT SUGGEST
THAT OUR LORD IS THE AUTHOR OF SIN.

DT: 23:19 GOD IS NOT A MAN, THAT HE SHOULD LIE;


NEITHER THE SON OF MAN, THAT HE SHOULD REPENT.
HATH HE SAID, AND SHALL HE NOT DO IT? OR HATH HE
SPOKEN, AND SHALL HE NOT MAKE IT GOOD?

HAB: 1:13 THOU ART OF PURER EYES THAN TO BEHOLD


EVIL AND CANST NOT LOOK ON INIQUITY; WHY LOOKEST
THOU UPON THEM THAT DEAL TREACHEROUSLY, AND
HOLDEST THY TONGUE WHEN THE WICKED DEVOURETH THE
MAN THAT IS MORE RIGHTEOUS THAN HE

TI: 1:2 IN HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE, WHICH GOD, WHO


CANOT LIE, PROMISED BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN,

HEB: 6:18 THAT BY TWO IMMUTABLE THINGS, IN WHICH


IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE, WE MIGHT HAVE A
STRONG CONSOLATION, WHO HAVE FLED FOR REFUGE TO
LAY HOLD UPON THE HOPE SET BEFORE US,

JAS: 1:13 LET NO MAN SAY WHEN HE IS TEMPTED, I AM


TEMPTED OF GOD; FOR GOD CANNOT BE TEMPTED WITH
EVIL, NEITHER TEMPTETH HE ANY MAN;

1 JN: 1:5 THIS, THEN IS THE MESSAGE WHICH WE HAVE


HEARD OF HIM, AND DECLARE UNTO YOU, THAT GOD IS
LIGHT, AND IN HIM IS NO DARKNESS AT ALL.

IF GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF EVIL (SIN), THEN MAN


MUST MAKE AN OVERT ACT AGAINST GODS' WILL IN
ORDER TO SIN. IF WE HAD A PREDESTINATION OUR LORD
WOULD NOT ALLOW SIN INTO THIS WORLD. OUR CHOICE
TO SIN IS A FREE WILL ACT AND IN DIRECT VIOLATION
TO GODS' LAW. ISRAEL WAS HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE AS
STATED IN DETUTERONOMY
DEUT: 7:6 FOR THOU ARE AN HOLY PEOPLE UNTO THE
LORD THY GOD; THE LORD THY GOD HATH CHOSEN THEE
TO BE A SPECIAL PEOPLE UNTO HIMSELF, ABOVE ALL
PEOPLE WHO ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

IF ISRAEL WAS PREDESTINED WHY DID THEY SIN


AGAINST THE LORD? GOD WOULD NOT HAVE PERMITTED
ISRAEL (HIS HOLY PEOPLE) TO SIN IF THEY WERE
PREDESTINED, AS IT GOES CONTRARY TO HIS HOLY
BEING.

ISA: 6;3 AND ONE CRIED UNTO ANOTHER, AND SAID


HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, IS THE LORD OF HOSTS; THE WHOLE
EARTH IS FULL OF HIS GLORY.

THE NATION ISRAEL WAS CHOSEN FOR A PURPOSE IN


GODS PLAN OF SALVATION. ISRAEL CHOSE THE WAY THEY
WANTED TO GO AND THE LORD PERMITTED IT. WE AS
INDIVIDUALS DO THE SAME. THIS IS NOT
PREDESTINATION THIS IS FOREKNOWLEDGE. THE WORD OF
OUR LORD AS STATED IN THE BIBLE, IS DIRECTED TO
ALL HIS CREATION FOR INSTRUCTION.

2 TIM: 3:16 ALL SCRIPTURE IS GIVEN BY


INSPIRATION OF GOD, AND IS PROFITABLE FOR
DOCTRINE, FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, FOR
INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.

WE WOULD NOT NEED (2TIM: 3:16) IF WE WERE


PREDESTINED BECAUSE WE COULD DO NO WRONG AND
WOULD BE HOLY IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD ALWAYS.
FROM THIS WE CAN SEE THAT WE REQUIRE THE BIBLE
FOR OUR INSPIRATION TO DO GODS' WILL. IF WE NEED
TO BE CORRECTED AS STATED THEN PREDESTINATION
CANNOT BE. IF ONE IS PREDESTINED THEN ALL ARE
PREDESTINED,(ROM:8:29,30) WHICH MEANS ALL OUR
ACTIONS ARE DETERMINED BY GOD AND GOD HAS DECIDED
WHO WILL AND WHO WILL NOT GO TO HEAVEN OR HELL,
BEFORE THE WORLD WAS CREATED. THIS IS IN DIRECT
OPPOSITION WITH WHAT HAS BEEN STATED PREVIOUSLY
AS TO GODS' WILL, SOVEREIGN RIGHT AND TEACHING.
LK: 19:10 FOR THE SON OF MAN IS COME TO SEEK AND
TO SAVE THAT WHICH WAS LOST.

OUR LORD WOULD NOT PREDESTINED ANY TO BE LOST.

THE NATION ISRAEL WAS TO BE AN EXAMPLE FOR ALL


OTHER NATIONS.

DUET: 33 27-29 THY ETERNAL GOD IS THY REFUGE, AND


UNDERNEATH ARE THE EVERLASTING ARMS; AND HE SHALL
THRUST OUT THE ENEMY FROM BEFORE THEE, AND SHALL
SAY DESTROY THEM. V28 ISRAEL THEN SHALL DWELL IN
SAFETY ALONE; THE FOUNTAIN OF JACOB SHALL BE UPON
A LAND OF GRAIN AND WINE; ALSO HIS HEAVENS SHALL
DROP DOWN DEW.V29 HAPPY ART THOU, O ISRAEL! WHO
IS LIKE UNTO THEE, O PEOPLE SAVED BY THE LORD,
THE SHIELD OF THY HELP AND WHO IS THE SWORD OF
THY EXCELLENCY AND THY ENEMIES SHALL BE FOUND
LIARS UNTO THEE, AND THOU SHALT TREAD UPON THEIR
HIGH PLACES.

1 CHR: 1721 AND WHAT ONE NATION IN THE EARTH IS


LIKE THY PEOPLE, ISRAEL WHOM GOD WENT TO REDEEM
TO BE HIS OWN PEOPLE, TO MAKE THEE A NAME BY
GREAT AND TERRIBLE THINGS BY DRIVING OUT NATIONS
FROM BEFORE THY PEOPLE, WHOM THOU HAST REDEEMED
OUT OF EGYPT?

EXAMPLES ARE USED AS PATHWAYS AND THE ISRAELITES


WERE TO BE OUR GUIDE TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER. THEY
FAILED IN THIS IMPORTANT TASK. WERE THEY
PREDESTINED TO DO THIS? DOES THE BIBLE TEACH WE
ARE PREDESTINED TO FAIL?THE BIBLE IS A BOOK THAT
EXHORTS US TO DO GOOD AND FOLLOW IN THE PATHWAYS
OF OUR LORDS' TEACHING. THE FAILURES THAT ARE
DEPICTED IN THE BIBLE ARE WARNINGS AND TOOLS FOR
US TO USE. BY FOLLOWING THESE EXAMPLES IT WILL
LEAD TO A BETTER LIFE IN CHRIST. BY FOLLOWING THE
LORDS' INSTRUCTIONS WE WILL BE SHOWING OTHERS
WHAT OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN WOULD HAVE US DO. OUR
SALVATION IS BASED ON THE GRACE OF GOD AND OUR
FAITH IN GOD. WE MUST ACCEPT THAT WE ARE SINNERS,
THAT JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS TO SAVE US FROM
DAMNATION. THIS ACT OF ACCEPTANCE WITH A CONTRITE
HEART IS THE SUBSTANCE OF OUR FAITH. WE ARE NOT
PREDESTINATED IN RELATION TO OUR SALVATION.
MANKIND HAS THE ELECTION OF EITHER ACCEPTING OR
REJECTING THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH LEADS TO OUR
SALVATION.

CALLED ABRAHAN
PREDESTINE ISAAC
JUSTIFIED JACOB
GLORIFIED JOSEPH

ABLE WORSHIPPED IN FAITH


ENOCH WALKED IN FAITH
NOAH WORKED IN FAITH
THE TRIUNE MAN

IF GOD IS A TRIUNE GOD AND WE WERE FORMED IN THE


IMAGE OF GOD THEN WE MUST BE TRIUNE ALSO.

GEN 1:27 SO GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE, IN


THE IMAGE OF GOD CREATED HE HIM; MALE AND FEMALE
CREATED HE THEM.

GEN 9:6 WHOSO SHEDDETH MAN'S BLOOD, BY MAN SHALL


HIS BLOOD BE SHED: FOR IN THE IMAGE OF GOD MADE
HE MAN.

SPIRIT SOUL AND BODY

1 THES: 5:23 AND THE VERY GOD OF PEACE SANCTIFY


YOU WHOLLY SPIRIT AND SOUL AND BODY BE PRESERVED
BLAMELESS UNTO THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS
CHRIST.

THE SPIRIT OF MAN

THE WORD SPIRIT IS USED IN THREE DIFFERENT WAY IN


THE BIBLE

1. IT REFERS TO OUR HUMAN SPIRIT THAT WHICH GOD


GAVE US.

MATH 5:3 BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT: FOR


THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

ROM 8:16 THE SPIRIT;ITSELF BEARETH WITNESS WITH


OUR SPIRIT, THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD:

HEB 4:12 FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS QUICK AND


POWERFUL, AND SHARPER THAN ANY TWO EDGED SWORD,
PIERCING EVEN TO THE DIVIDING ASUNDER OF SOUL AND
SPIRIT, AND OF THE JOINTS AND MARROW, AND IS A
DISCERNER OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE
HEART.

JESUES MADE REFFERENCE TO HIS SPIRIT IN A HUMAN


SENCE
MK 2:8 AND IMMEDIATELY WHEN JESUS PERCEIVED IN
HIS SPIRIT THAT THEY SO REASONED WITHIN
THEMSELVES, HE SAID UNTO THEM, WHY REASON YE
THESE THINGS IN YOU HEARTS?

JOHN 11:33 WHEN JESUS THEREFORE SAW HER WEEPING,


AND THE JEWS ALSO WEEPING WHICH CAME WITH HERE HE
GROANED IN THE SPIRIT, AND WAS TROUBLED,

PAUL SPIRIT IS REFERRED TO IN A HUMAN SENCE ALSO

ACT 17:16 NOW WHILE PAUL WAITED FOR THEM AT


ATHENS, HIS SPIRIT WAS STIRRED IN HIM WHEN HE SAW
THE CITY WHOLLY GIVEN TO IDOLATRY.

2 COR 2:13 I HAD NO REST IN MY SPIRIT, BECAUSE I


FOUND NOT TITUS MY BROTHER: BUT TAKING MY LEAVE
OF THEM, I WENT FROM THENCE INTO MACEDONIA

2. THE SECOND USAGE IS THAT THERE ARE GOOD AND


EVIL SPIRITS

GOOD SPIRIT

PS 104:4 WHO MAKETH HIS ANGELS SPIRITS, HIS


MINISTERS A FLAMING FIRE:

ACT 2:3 AND THERE APPEARED UNTO THEM CLOVEN


TONGUES LIKE AS OF FIRE, AND IT SAT UPON EACH OF
THEM.

EVIL SPIRIT

ACT 19:12 SO THAT FROM HIS BODY WERE BOUGHT UNTO


THE SICK HANDKERCHIEFS OR APRONS, AND THE
DISEASES DEPARTED FROM THEM AND THE EVIL SPIRITS
WENT OUT OF THEM.

3. THE THIRD USAGE IS THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.

EX 31: 2-3 SEE I HAVE CALLED BY NAME BEZALEEL


THE SON OF URI, THE SON OF HUR, OF THE TRIBE OF
JUDAH: 3. AND I HVE FILLED HIM WITH THE SPIRIT OF
GOD IN WISDOM, AND IN UNDERSTANDING, AND IN
KNOWLEDGE, AND IN ALL MANNER OF WORKMANSHIP.

ACTS 1:16 MAN AND BRETHREN, THIS SCRIPTURE MUST


NEEDS HAVE BEEN FULFILLED, WHICH THE HOLY GHOST
BY THE MOUTH OF DAVID SPAKE BEFORE CONCERNING
JUDAS,WHICH WAS GUIDE TO THEM THAT TOOK JESUS.
(PSA 41:9)

ACT 2:4 AND THEY WERE ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY
GHOST AND BEGAN TO SPEAK WITH OTHER TONGUES AS
THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM UTTERANCE.

NOW WE WILL LOOK AT SOME PASSAGES TO SEE HOW


THESE SPIRITS ARE USED.

GOD HARDENS KING SIHON SPRIT

DEUT 2:30 BUT SIHON KING OF HESHBON WOULD NOT LET


US PASS BY HIM: FOR THE LORD THY GOD HARDENED HIS
SPIRIT, AND MADE HIS HEART OBSTINATE, THAT HE
MIGHT DELIVER HIM INTO THY HAND, AS APPEARETH
THIS DAY.

JOSHUA IS FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD

DUET 34:9 AND JOSHUA the SON OF NUN WAS FULL OF


THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM: FOR MOSES HAD LAID HIS
HANDS UPON HIM: AND DID AS THE LORD COMMANDED
MOSES.

OTHNIEL FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD

JUD 3:10AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD CAME UPON HIM


AND HE JUDGED ISRAEL, AND WENT OUT TO WAR: AND
THE LORD DELIVERED CHUSHAN-RISHATHAIM KING OF
MESOPOTAMIA INTO HIS HAND; AND HIS HAND PREVAILED
AGAINST CHUSHAN-RISHATHAIM.

GOD SENDS AN EVIL SPIRIT


JUD 9:23 THEN GOD SENT AN EVIL SPIRIT BETWEEN
ABIMELECH AND THE MEN OF SHECHEM; AND THE MEN OF
SHECHEM DEALT TREACHEROUSLY WITH ABIMELECH:

GOD SENDS HIS SPIRIT UNTO TO SAMSON

JUD 14:19 AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD CAME UPON


HIM, AND HE WENT DOWN TO ASHKELON, AND SLEW
THIRTY MEM OF THEM, AND TOOK THEIR SPOIL, AND
GAVE CHANGE OF GARMENTS UNTO THEM WHICH EXPOUNDED
THE RIDDLE. AND HIS ANGER WAS KINDLED, AND HE
WENT UP TO HIS FATHER'S HOUSE.

AT DEATH GOD TAKES BACK THE SPIRIT HE GIVES US.

ECCLES 3:21 WHO KNOWETH THE SPIRIT OF MAN THAT


GOETH UPWARD, AND THE SPIRIT OF THE BEAST THAT
GOETH DOWNWARD TO THE EARTH?

GOD RECEIVES THE SPIRIT HE GAVE US

ECCLES 12:7 THEN SHALL THE DUST RETURN TO THE


EARTH AS IT WAS: AND THE SPIRIT SHALLL RETURN
UNTO GOD WHO GAVE IT.

OUR SPIRIT IS GOD GIVEN THEREFORE IT BELONGS TO


GOD.

ZECH 12:1 THE BURDEN OF THE WORD OF THE LORD FOR


ISRAEL, SAITH THE LORD, WHICH STRETCHETH FORTH
THE HEAVENS, AND LAYETH THE FOUNDATION OF THE
EARTH, AND FORMETH THE SPIRIT OF MAN WITH HIM.

THE SOUL OF MAN

AND MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL

GEN 2:7 AND THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN OF THE DUST
OF THE GROUND, AND BREATHED INTO HIS NOSTRILS THE
BREATH OF LIFE: AND MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL.

SOUL — IT HAS TWO DISTINCT MEANINGS IN THE BIBLE


1.THAT WHICH MAKES A HUMAN OR ANIMAL BODY ALIVE
IT REFERS TO LIFE IN THE PHYSICAL BODY. THE SOUL
LEAVES THE PHYSICAL BODY AT DEATH.

GEN 35:18 AND IT CAME TO PASS, AS HER SOUL WAS


IN DEPARTING (FOR SHE HAD DIES) THAT SHE CALLED
HIS NAME BEN-ONI: BUT HIS FATHER CALLED HIM
BENJAMIN.

1 KING 17 19:22 AND THE LORD HEARD THE VOICE OF


ELIJAH; AND THE SOUL OF THE CHILD CAME INTO HIM
AGAIN, AND HE REVIVED.

2. THE SOUL IS THE INNER LIFE OF A PERSON. THE


PLACE OF EMOTIONS AND CENTER OF HUMAN PERSONALITY

THE DESIRE FOR FOOD

DEUT 12:20-21 WHEN THE LORD THY GOD SHALL


ENLARGE THY BORDER, HE HATH PROMISED THEE, AND
THOU SHALL SAY, I WILL EAT FLESH, BECAUSE THY
SOUL LONGETGETH TO EAT FLESH; THOU MAYEST EAT
FLESH, WHATSOEVER THY SOUL LUSTETH AFTER. 21. IF
THE PLACE WHICH THE LORD THY GOD HATH CHOSEN TO
PUT HIS NAME THERE BE TOO FAR FROM THEE, THEN
THOU SHALL KILL OF THY HERT AND OF THY FLOCK,
WHICH THE LORD HATH GIVEN THEE, AS I HAVE
COMMANDED THEE, AND THOU SHALT EAT IN THY GATES
WHATSOEVER THY SOUL LUSTETH AFTER

.THE NEED FOR LOVE

SONG 1:7 TELL ME O THOU WHOM MY SOUL LOVETH,


WHERE THOU FEEDEST, WHERE THOU MAKEST THE FLOCK
TO REST AT NOON: FOR WHY SHOULD I BE AS ONE THAT
TURNETH ASIDE BY THE FLOCKS OF THY COMPANIONS?

LONGING FOR GOD

PS 63:1 O GOD THOU ART MY GOD; EARLY WILL I


SEEK THEE: MY SOUL THIRSTETH FOR THEE, MY FLESH
LONGETH FOR THEE IN A DRY AND THIRSTY LAND, WHERE
NO WATER IS;
REJOCING

PS 86:4 REJOICE THE SOUL OF THY SERVANT: FOR


UNTO THEE, O LORD DO I LIFT UP MY SOUL.

KNOWING

PS 139:14 I WILL PRAISE THEE; FOR I AM


FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE: MARVELLOUS ARE
THY WORKS: AND THAT MY SOUL KNOWETH RIGHT WELL

HAVING MEMORY

LAM 3:20 MY SOUL HATH THEM STILL IN REMEMBRANCE


AND IS HUMBLED IN ME.

FEELING SORROWFULL.

MATT 26:38 THEN SAITH HE UNTO THEM, MY SOUL IS


EXCEEDING SORROWFUL, EVEN UNTO DEATH: TARRY YE
HERE, AND WATCH WITH ME.

ATONEMENT FOR THE SINNING SOUL

LEV 17:11FOR THE LIFE OF THE FLESH IS IN THE


BLOOD: AND I HAVE GIVEN IT TO YOU UPON THE ALTAR
TO MAKE AN ATONEMENT FOR YOUR SOULS: FOR IT IS
THE BLOOD THAT MAKETH AN ATONEMENT FOR THE SOUL.

DELILAH TORMENTS SAMSON SOUL

JUD 16:16 AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN SHE PRESSED


HIM DAILY WITH HER WLORDS, AND URGED HIS, SO THAT
HIS SOUL WAS VEXED UNTO DEATH;

WORTH OF THE SOUL

MATT 16:26 FOR WHAT IS A MAN PROFITED; IF HE


SHALL GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD,AND LOSE HIS OUW SOUL/
OR WHAT SHALL A MAN GIVE IN EXCHANGE FOR HIS
SOUL?
BODY

BODY -THE MATERIAL OR PHYSICAL PART OF A PERSON

IT IS A GIFT FROM GOD

GEN 1:31 AND GOD SAW EVERY THING THAT HE HAD


MADE, AND BEHOLD, IT WAS VERY GOOD. AND THE
EVENING AND THE MORNING WERE THE SIXTH DAY.

THE BODY AND SOUL ACT SEPARATELY

MICAH 6:7 WILL THE LORD BE PLEASED WITH THOUSANDS


OF RAMS OR WITH TEN THOUSANDS OF RIVERS OF OIL?
SHALL I GIVE MY FIRSTBORN FOR MY TRANSGRESSION,
THE FRUIT OF MY BODY FOR THE SIN OF MY SOUL?

THE BODY BELONGS TO THE EARTH THE SOUL IS


CONDEMED OR SAVED.

MT 10:28 AND FEAR NOT THEM WHICH KILL THE BODY,


BUT ARE NOT ABLE TO KILL THE SOUL: BUT RATHER
FEAR HIM WHICH IS ABLE TO DESTROY BOTH SOUL AND
BODY IN HELL

OUR BODY MUST BE KEPT HOLY

1COR 6:19 WHAT? KNOW YE NOT THAT YOUR BODY IS THE


TEMPLE OF THE HOLY GHOST WHICH IS IN YOU, WHICH
YE HAVE OF GOD AND YE ARE NOT YOUR OWN?

GOD PAID A RANSOM FOR YOUR BODY

1COR 6:20 FOR YE ARE BOUGHT WITH A PRICE:


THEREFORE GLORIFY GOD IN YOUR BODY, AND IN YOUR
SPIRIT, WHICH ARE GOD'S

OUR EATHERLY AND SPRITUAL BODIES ARE SEPERATE

1 COR 15:44 IS SOWN A NATURAL BODY, IT IS RAISED


A SPIRTUAL BODY. THERE IS A NATURAL BODY, AND
THERE IS A SPIRITUAL BODY.
THE BODY AND SPIRIT ARE SEPARATE

EPH 4:4 THERE IS ON BODY, AND ONE SPIRIT, EVEN AS


YE ARE CALLED IN ONE HOPE OF YOUR CALLING;

THE BODY DOES NOT LIVE WITHOUT A SPIRIT

JAS 2:26 FOR AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS


DEAD SO FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD ALSO.
SIN

GOOD MORNING. TODAY WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT SOME


BAD NEWS FROM THE GOOD NEW BOOK. BEFORE WE DO
SHALL WE PRAY.

LORD WE ASK FOR WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE SO THAT WE


MIGHT UNDERSTAND YOUR WORD. WE ASK THAT YOU BLESS
EACH OF US AS WE ARE INVITED TO STUDY YOUR WORD.
WE ASK KNOWING THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY PROVIDED FOR
OUR PARTITIONS. WE ASK THESE THINGS IN THE NAME
OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. AMEN.

THIS MORING I WOULD LIKE TO EXAMINE THREE TYPES


OF SIN THEY ARE TRANSGRESSION, INIQUITY AND
TREPASS. ALL OTHER TYPES OF SIN ARE AN OUTGROWTH
FROM THESE.

WE SIN IN THOUGHT, WORD AND DEED

THOUGHT

1 JH 3:15 WHOSOEVER HATETH HIS BROTHER IS A


MURDERER: AND YE KNOW THAT NO MURDERER HATH
ETERNAL LIFE ABIDING IN HIM.

WORD

MATH 5:22 BUT I SAY UNTO YOU THAT WHOSOEVER IS


ANGRY WITH HIS BROTHER WITHOUT A CAUSE SHALL BE
IN DANGER OF THE JUDGMENT: AND WHOSOEVER SHALL
SAY TO HIS BROTHER, RACA, SHALL BE IN DANGER OF
THE COUNCIL: BUT WHOSOEVER SHALL SAY, THOU FOOL,
SHALL BE IN DANGER OF HELL FIRE.

DEED

ROM 1:32 WHO KNOWING THE JUDGEMENT OF GOD THAT


THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH THINGS ARE WORTHY OF
DEATH, NOT ONLY DO THE SAME BUT HAVE PLEASURE IN
THEM THAT DO THEM.

SIN IS AN ABOMINATION IN THE SIGHT OF GOD


lev 18:22 THOU SHALT NOT LIE WITH MANKIND, AS
WITH WOMANKIND:IT IS ABOMINATION.

THAT ALIENATES HUMANITY FROM GOD,

LEADING TO DIVINE CONDEMNATION AND THE PUNISMENT


OF DEATH

NUM 14:31-35 31 BUT YOUR LITTLE ONES, WHICH YE


SAID SHOULD BE A PREY, THEM WILL I BRING IN, AND
THEY SHALL KNOW THE LAND WHICH YE HAVE DESPISED.
32 BUT AS FOR YOU, YOUR CARCASES, THAY SHALL FALL
IN THIS WILDERNESS. 33 AND YOUR CHILDREN SHALL
WANDER IN THE WILDERNESS FORTY YEARS, AND BEAR
YOUR WHOREDOMS, UNTIL YOUR CARCASES BE WASTED IN
THE WILDERNESS. 34 AFTER THE NUMBER OF THE DAYS
IN WHICH YE SEARCHED THE LAND, EVEN FORTY DAYS,
EACH DAY FOR A YEAR, SHALL YE BEAR YOUR
INIQUITIES, EVEN FORTY YEARS, AND YE SHALL KNOW
MY BREACH OF PROMISE. 35 I THE LORD HAVE SAID, I
WILL SURELY DO IT UNTO ALL THIS EVIL
CONGREGATION,THAT ARE GATHERED TOGETHER AGAINST
ME: IN THIS WILDERNESS THEY SHALL BE CONSUMED,
AND THERE THEY SHALL DIE.

PLEASE TURN WITH ME TO:

PSA 14:1 THE FOOL HAS SAID IN HIS HEART, THERE IS


NO GOD. THEY ARE CORRUPT, THEY HAVE DONE
ABOMINABLE WORKS, THERE IS NONE THAT DOES GOOD.

PROV 24:9 THE THOUGHT OF FOOLISHNESS IS SIN: AND


THE SCORNER IS AN ABOMINATION TO MEN.

AND TO CONFIRM THIS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT:

ROM 3:9 WHAT THEN? ARE WE BETTER THAN THEY? NO,


IN NO WAY: FOR WE HAVE BEFORE PROVED BOTH JEWS
AND GENTILES, THAT THEY ARE ALL UNDER SIN;

ROM 3:10 AS IT IS WRITTEN, THERE IS NONE


RIGHTEOUS, NO NOT ONE:
ROM 3:23 FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF
THE GLORY OF GOD.

NOW TO.

ROM 6:23 FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH, BUT THE


GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST
OUR LORD.

SOME WOULD ARGUE THAT THIS IS A SPRITUAL DEATH


BUT THE LORD INTENDED OTHERWISE.

HERE IS A LIST OF 16 SIN WHICH GOD REQUIRES THE


DEATH PENALTY. I WILL READ THE SIN AND THE
REFERENCE AND WOULD LIKE SOMEONE IN THE
CONGREGATION TO READ THE BIBLE VERSE.

Crimes Allowing the Death Penalty


SIN

1.Premeditated Murder Exodus 21:12-14, 22, 23

2. Kidnapping Exodus 21:16;


Deuteronomy 24:7

3. Striking or Cursing Parents Exodus 21:15;


Leviticus 20:9; Proverbs 20:20; Matthew 15:4;
Mark 7:10

4. Magic and Divination Exodus 22:18

5. Bestiality Exodus 22:19; Leviticus 20:15,


16

6. Sacrificing to False Gods Exodus 22:20

7. Profaning the Sabbath Exodus 35:2; Numbers


15:32-36

8. Offering Human Sacrifice Leviticus 20:2

9. Adultery Leviticus 20:10-21; Deuteronomy 22:22


10. Incest Leviticus 20:11, 12, 14

11. Homosexuality Leviticus 20:13

12. Blasphemy Leviticus 24:11-14, 16, 23

13. False Prophecy Deuteronomy 13:1-10

14.Incorrigible Rebelliousness Deuteronomy


17:12; 21:18-21

15.Fornifacation Deuteronomy 22:20, 21

16. Rape of Betrothed Virgin Deuteronomy 22:23–27

2 THES 1:9 WHO SHALL BE PUNISHED WITH EVERLASTING


DESTRUCTION FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD AND
FROM THE GLORY OF HIS POWER. GEHENNA

THESE VERSES ARE OUR STARTING POINT IN RELATION


TO SIN. THE BETTER WE UNDERSTAND SIN THE BETTER
OUR CHANCES ARE TO GUARD AGAINST SINNING. WE WILL
NOW LOOK AT THE THREE TYPES OF SIN.

TRANSGRESSION – IS THE DIVINE BOUNDARY BETWEEN


GOOD AND EVIL.

THEREFOR TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW IS THE CROSSING


OVER FROM GOOD TO EVIL. THE MEANS BY WHICH WE
CROSS OVER FROM GOOD TO EVIL IS REBELLION AGAINST
GOD DIVINE ORDER. IN OTHER WORDS CORRUPTION OF
THE LAW

DEUT 9:7 REMEMBER AND FORGET NOT HOW THOU


PROVOKED THE LORD YOUR GOD TO WRATH IN THE
WILDERNESS: FROM THE DAY THAT YOU DID DEPART OUT
OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, UNTIL YOU COME UNTO THIS
PLACE YOU HAVE BEEN REBELLIOUS AGAINST THE LORD.

THIS IS WHAT THE ISRAELITES TOLD JOSHUA WHEN HE


ASSENDED TO LEADERSHIP AT THE DEATH OF MOSES. IT
CLEARLY SHOW THE SIGNIFICATE OF REBELLION AND HOW
IT WAS TO BE DEALT WITH.
JOSH 1:18 WHOSOEVER HE BE THAT DOES REBEL AGAINST
YOUR COMMANDMENT, AND WILL NOT HEARKEN UNTO THE
WORDS IN ALL THAT YOU COMMAND HIM, HE SHALL BE
PUT TO DEATH: ONLY BE STRONG AND OF A GOOD
COURAGE.

THIS IS WHAT SAMUEL TOLD SAUL.

1 SAM 15:23 FOR REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF


WHICHCRAFT,AND STUBBORNNESS IS AS INIQUITY AND
IDOLATRY. BECAUSE YOU HAVE REJECTED THE WORD OF
THE LORD, HE HAS ALSO REJECTED YOU FROM BEING
KING.

1CHRON 9:13 SO SAUL DIED FOR HIS TRANSGRESSION


WHICH HE COMMITTED AGAINST THE LORD, EVEN AGAINST
THE WORD OF THE LORD, WHICH HE KEPT NOT, AND ALSO
FOR ASKING COUNSEL OF ONE THAT HAD A FAMILIAR
SPIRIT, TO ENQUIRE OF IT:

PROV 17:11 AN EVIL MAN SEEKS ONLY REBELLION:


THEREFORE A CRUEL MESSENGER SHALL BE SENT AGAINST
HIM.

ISA 53:5 BUT HE WAS WOUNDED FOR OUR


TRANSGRESSIONS, HE WAS BRUISED FOR OUR
INIQUITIES: THE CHASTISMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS UPON
HIM; AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.

ISA 53:8 HE WAS TAKEN FROM PRISON AND FROM


JUDGMENT; AND WHO SHALL DECLARE HIS GENERATION?
FOR HE WAS CUT OFF OUT OF THE LAND OF THE LIVING:
FOR THE TRANSGRESSION OF MY PEOPLE WAS HE
STRICKEN.

FROM THIS WE CAN SEE THAT THERE IS ALWAYS A


PENALITY THAT MUST BE PAID FOR REBELLION. THE
TRANGRESSION OF GODS LAWS REQUIRES DEATH.

INIQUITY – AN ACT INHERENTLY WRONG, WHETHER


EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN OR NOT – GROSS INJUSTICE.TO
BEND OR DEVIATE FROM GODS' WAYS -  EVIL,
WICKEDNESS, DISOBEDIENCE
IN OTHER WORDS NOT COMPLYING WITH PROVERBS 3:27

PROV 3:27 WITHHOLD NOT GOOD FROM THEM TO WHOM IT


IS DUE, WHEN IT IS IN THE POWER OF THINE HAND TO
DO IT.

GEN 19:15 AND WHEN THE MORNING AROSE, THEN THE


ANGELS HASTENED LOT, SAYING, ARISE, TAKE THY,WIFE
AND THY TWO DAUGHTERS, WHICH ARE HERE; LEST THOU
BE COMSUMED IN THE INIQUITY OF THE CITY

JOB 4:8 EVEN AS I HAVE SEEN, THEY THAT PLOW


INIQUITY, AND SOW WICKEDNESS, REAP THE SAME.

PROV 22:8 HE THAT SOWS INIQUITY SHALL REAP


VANITY: AND THE ROD OF HIS ANGER SHALL FAIL.

EX 20:4 THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE ANY GRAVEN


IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANYTHING THAT IS IN
HEAVEN ABOVE, OR THAT IS IN THE EARTH BENEATH, OR
THAT IS IN THE WATER UNDER THE EARTH

EX 20:5 THOU SHALT NOT BOW DOWN THYSELF TO THEM,


NOR SERVE THEM: FOR I THE LORD THY GOD AM A
JEALOUS GOD, VISITING THE INIQUITY OF THE
FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN UNTO THE THIRD AND
FOURTH GENERATION OF THEM THAT HATE ME;

EXAMPLE: ISRAELITES MAKE GOLDEN CALF

EX 32:4 AND HE RECEIVED THEM AT THEIR HAND, AND


FASHIONED IT WITH A GRAVING TOOL, AFTER HE HAD
MADE IT A MOLTEN CALF: AND THEY SAID, THESE BE
THY GOD, O ISREAL, WHICH BROUGHT THEE UP; OUT OF
THE LAND OF EGYPT.

EXAMPLE: MOSES TALKING TO THE KING OF EDOM

NUM 20: 17-21 17 LET UP PASS I PRAY THEE, THROUGH


THY COUNTRY: WE WILL NOT PASS THROUGH THE FIELDS,
OR THROUGH THE VINEYARDS, NIETHER WILL WE DRINK
OF THE WATER OF THE WELLS: WE WILL GO BY THE
KING'S HIGHWAY WAY, WE WILL NOT TURN TO THE RIGHT
HAND NOR TO THE LEFT UNTIL WE HAVE PASSED THE
BORDERS. 18. AND EDOM SAID UNTO HIM, THOU SHALT
NOT PASS BY ME, LEST I COME OUT AGAINST THEE WITH
THE SWORD. 19. AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL SAID
UNTO HIM, WE WILL GO BY THE HIGH WAY: AND IF I
AND MY CATTLE DRINK OF THY WATER, THEN I WILL PAY
FOR IT: I WILL ONLY, WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING ELSE,
GO THOUGH ON MY FEET.20 AND HE SAID, THOU SHALT
NOT GO THROUGH. AND EDOM CAME OUT AGAINST HIM
WITH MUCH PEOPLE, AND WITH A STRONG HAND. 21.
THUS EDOM REFUSED TO GIVE ISRAEL PASSAGE THROUGH
HIS BORDER: WHEREFORE ISRAEL TURNED AWAY FROM
HIM.

PREVIOUS TO THIS IN VERSE 14 MOSES HAD SENT


MESSANGERS TO THE KING OF EDOM SAYING THY BOTHER
ISRAEL SHOWING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE KING
OF EDOM AND THE ISRAELITES.

THE EDOMITES – WERE PEOPLE DESCENDED FROM THE


HEBREWS THROUGH ESAU, THE BROTHER OF JACOB AND
THE GRANDSON OF ABRAHAM (GEN 36-9) SO THEY SHOULD
HAVE ALLOWED MOSES AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO
PASS THROUGH THERE LAND. GOD FORBID THE
ILARAELITES TO HATE THE EDOMITES BACAUSE OF THIS
ACT OF RIGHT OF PASSAGE.

DEUT 23:7-8 7 YOU SHALT NOT ABHOR AN EDOMITE; FOR


HE IS THY BROTHER: THOU SHALT NOT ABHOR AN
EGYPTIAN; BECAUSE YOU WERE A STRANGER IN HIS
LAND. 8.THE CHILDREN THAT ARE BEGOTTEN OF THEM
SHALL ENTER INTO THE CONGREGATION OF THE LORD IN
THEIR THIRD GERERATION.

THIS IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF INIQUITIES

EX 34:7 KEEPING MERCY FOR THOUSANDS, FORGIVING


INIQUITY AND TRANSGRESSION AND SIN, AND THAT WILL
BY NO MEANS CLEAR THE GUILTY, VISITING THE
INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN, AND
UPON THE CHILDREN'S UNTO THE THIRD AND TO THE
FOURTH GERERATION.

A INTERESTING SIDE NOTE TO THIS IS THAT JOB CAME


FROM THE LAND OF UZ WHICH IS A REGION AT THE
SOUTH OF EDOM, AND WEST OF THE ARABIAN DESERT,
EXTENDING TO CHALDEA. IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE THAT
MOSES COULD OF KNOW JOB PERSONALLY.

TRESSPASS – IS THE INTRUISION OF SELF WILL INTO


THE SPERE OF DIVINE AUTHORITY.

NUM 5:6-7 SPEAK UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISAEL, WHEN


A MAN OR WOMAN SHALL COMMIT ANY SIN THAT MEN
COMMIT TO DO A TRESPASS AGAINST THE LORD, AND
THAT PERSON BE GUILTY; 7. THEN SHALL CONFESS THEIR
SIN WHICH THEY HAVE DONE: AND HE SHALL RECOMPENSE
HIS TREPASS WITH THE PRINCIPAL THEREOF, AND ADD
UNTO IT THE FIFTH PART THEREOF, AND GIVE IT UNTO
HIM AGAINST WHOM HE HATH TRESPASSED.

EZE 17:19-20 19. THEREFOR THUS SAITH THE LORD


GOD; AS I LIVE, SURELY MINE OATH THAT HE HATH
DESPISED, AND MY COVENANT THAT HE HATH BROKEN,
EVEN IT WILL I RECOMPENSE UPON HIS OWN HEAD. 20
AND I WILL SPREAD MY NET UPON HIM, AND HE SHALL
BE TAKEN IN MY SNARE, AND I WILL BRING HIM TO
BABYLON, AND WILL PLEAD WITH HIM THERE FOR HIS
TREPASS THAT HE HATH TREPASSED AGAINST ME.

PSA 51:4 AGAINST YOU, YOU ONLY HAVE I SINNED, AND


DONE THIS EVIL IN YOUR SIGHT THAT YOU MIGHT BE
JUSTIFIED WHEN YOU SPEAK AND BE CLEAR WHEN YOU
JUDGE.

THIS MAKES IT QUITE CLEAR THAT WE SIN (TREPASS)


AGAINST GOD DEVINE LAW. WE DECIDE WHAT LAWS WE
WILL KEEP OR CHANGE THESE LAWS TO OUR BENEFIT.

EXAMPLE:
EX 20:15 THOU SHALT NOT STEAL.

THE EIGHT COMMANDMENT.

MAL3:8-9 8. WILL A MAN ROB GOD? YET YE HAVE


ROBBED ME. BUT YE SAY, WHEREIN HAVE WE ROBBED
THEE? IN TITHES AND OFFERINGS. 9. YOU ARE CURSED
WITH A CURSE: FOR YOU HAVE ROBBERD ME EVEN THE
WHOLE NATION.

EXAMPLE

1 SAM 15:2-3

2. THUS SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, I REMEMBER THAT


WHICH AMALIK DID TO ISRAEL, HOW HE LAID WAIT FOR
HIM IN THE WAY WHEN HE CAME UP FROM EGYPT. 3. NOW
GO AND SMITE AMALEK, AND UTTERLY DESTROY ALL THAT
THEY HAVE, AND SPARE THEM NOT; BUT SLAY BOTH MAN
AND WOMAN, INFANT AND SUCKLING, OX AND SHEEP
CAMEL AND ASS
1 SAM 15: 13-14

AND SAMUEL CAME TO SAUL: AND SAUL SAID UNTO HIM,


BLESSED BE THOU OF THE LORD: I HAVE PERFORMED THE
COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD. 14 AND SAMUEL SAID, WHAT
MEANETH THEN THIS BLEATING OF THE SHEEP IN MINE
EARS, AND THE LOWING OF THE OXEN WHICH I HEAR?

EXAMPLE:

EZRA 9:1-2
1.NOW WHEN THERE THINGS WERE DONE THE PRINCES
CAME TO ME SAYING, THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, AND THE
PRIESTS, AND THE LEVITES, HAVE NOT SEPARATED
THEMSELVES FROM THE PEOPLE OF THIE LANDS, DOING
ACCORDING TO THEIR ABOMINATIONS, EVEN OF THE
CANAANITES, THE HITTITES, THE PERIZZITES, THE
JEBUSITES THE AMMONITES, THE MOABITES, THE
EGYPTIANS, AND THE AMORITES. 2.FOR THEY HAVE
TAKEN OF THEIR DAUGHTERS FOR THEMSELVES, AND FOR
THEIR SONS: SO THAT THE HOLY SEED HAVE MINGLED
THEMSELVES WITH THE PEOPLE OF THOSE LANDS: YEA
THE HAND OF THE PRINCES AND RULERS HATH BEEN
CHIEF IN THIS TRESPASS.

1KI 8:53 FOR THOU DIDST SEPARATE THEM FROM AMONG


ALL THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH, TO BE THINE
INHERITANCE, AS THOU SPEAKEST BY THE HAND OF
MOSES THE SERVANT, WHEN THOU BROUGHTEST OUR
FATERS OUT OF EGYPT, O LORD GOD.
WE MAY BE IGNORANT OF THE LAW BUT IT DOES NOT
EXCUSE US FROM THE LAW.

SIN

REBELLION – DISOBEDIENCE OF GOD'S LAW THE EFFECTS


OF THIS REBELLION

A. DEFINED AS:

TRANGRESSON- 1 JOHN 3:4 WHOSOEVER COMMITTETH SIN


TRANSGRESSETH ALSO THE LAW: FOR SIN IS THE
TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW.

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS – 1 JOHN 5:17 ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS


IS SIN: AND THERE IS A SIN NOT UNTO DEATH.

OMISSION OF KNOW DUTY – JAMES 4:17 THERFORE TO


HIM THAT KNOWETH TO DO GOOD, AND DOETH IT NOT, TO
HIM IT IS SIN

NOT FROM FAITH – ROM 14:23 AND HE THAT DOUBTETH


IS DAMMED IF HE EAT, BECAUSE HE EATETH NOT OF
FAITH: FOR WHATSOEVER IS NOT OF FAITH IS SIN.

THOUGHT OF FOOLISHNESS - PROV 24:9 THOUGHTS OF


FOOLISHNESS IS SIN: AND THE SCORNER IS AN
ABOMINATION TO MEN.

B. SOURCES OF, IN

SATAN - JOHN 8:44 YE ARE IF TIYR FATHER THE


DEVIL, AND THE LUSTS OF YOUR FATHER YE WILL DO HE
WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, AND ABODE NOT
IN THE TRUTH, BECAUSE THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM.
WHEN HE SPEAKETH A LIE, HE SPEAKETH OF HIS OWN:
FOR HE IS A LIAR, AND THE FATHER OF IT

MAN'S HEART - MATT 15:19,20 19.FOR OUT OF THE


HEART PROCEED EVIL THOUGHTS, MURDER, ADULTERIES,
FORNICATION, THETHS, FALSE WITNESS, BLASPHEMIES;
20. THESE ARE THE THINGS WHICH DEFILE A MAN: BUT
TO EAT WITH UNWASHEN HANDS DEFILETH NOT A MAN.
LUST - JAMES 1:15 THEN WHEN LUST HATH CONCEIVED,
IT BRINGETH FORTH SIN AND SIN, WHEN IT IS
FINISHED, BRINGETH FORTH DEATH.

ADAM'S TRANGRESSION ROM – 5:12,16 WHEREFORE, AS


BY ONE MAN SIN ENTERED INTO THE WORLD, AND DEATH
BY SIN; AND SO DEATH PASSED UPON ALL MEN, FOR
THAT ALL HAVE SINNED: 16. AND NOT AS IF WAS BY
ONE THAT SINNED, SO IS THE GIFT: FOR THE JUDGMENT
WAS BY ONE TO CONDEMNATION,BUT THE FREE GIFT IS
OF MANY OFFENCES UNTO JUSTIFICATION.

NATURAL BIRTH - PS 51:5 BEHOLD I WAS SHAPEN IN


INIQUITY; AND IN SIN DID MY MOTHER CONCEIVE ME.

C. KINDS OF

NATIONAL - PROV 14:34 RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTETH A


NATION: BUT SIN IS A REPROACH TO ANY PEOPLE.

PERSONAL - JOSH 7:20 AND ACHAN ANSWERED JOSHUA,


AND SAID, INDEED I HAVE SINNED AGAINST THE LORD

BEFORE THEEE OUR SECRET SINS IN THE LIGHT OF THY
COUNTANCE.

ALSO FROM PRESUMPTUOUS SINS; LET THEM NOT HVE
DOMINION OVER ME: THEN SHALL I BE UPRIGHT, AND I
SHALL BE INNOCENT FROM THE GREAT TRANSGRESSION.

OPEN 1 TIM – 5:24 SOME MEN'S SIN ARE


OPENBEFOREHAND, GOING BEFORE TO JUDGMENT: AND
SOME MEN THEY FOLLOW AFTER.

SHAMELESS - IS 3:9 THE SHEW OF THEIR COUNTENANCE


DOTH WITNESS AGAINST THEM; AND THEY DECLARE THEIR
SIN AS SODOM, THEY HIDE IT NOT. WOE UNTO THEIR
SOUL!FOR THEY HAVE REWARDED EVIL UNTO THEM
SELVES.
YOUTHFUL – PS 25:7 REMEMBER NOT THE SINS OF MY
YOUTH, NOR MY TRANSGRESSIONS. ACCORDING TO THY
MERCY REMEMBER THOU ME FOR THEY GOODNESS SAKE, O
LORD

PUBLIC – 2 SAM – 24:10,17 AND DAVID'S HEART SMOTE


HIM AFTER THAT HE HAD NUMBERED THE PEOPLE. AND
DAVID SAID UNTO THE LORD, I HVE SINNED GREATLY IN
THAT I HAVE DONE: AND NOW I BESEECH THEE, O LORD
TAKE AWAY THE INIQUITY OF THEY SERVANT: FOR I HVE
DONE VERY FOOLISHLY. 17. AND DAVID SPAKE UNTO THE
LORD WHEN HE SAW THE ANGEL THAT SMOTE THE PEOPLE,
AND SAID LO, I HAVE SINNED AND I HVE DONE
WICKEDLY: BUT THESE SHEEP, WHAT HAVE THEY DONE?
LET THINE HAND, I PRAY THEE, BE AGAINST ME, AND
AGAINST MY FATHER”S HOUSE.

UNFORGIVABLE – MATT 12:32 AND WHOSOEVER SPEAKETH


A WORD AGAINST THE SON OF MAN, IT SHALL BE
FORGIVEN HIM: BUT WHOSOEVER SPEAKETH AGAINST THE
HOLY GHOST, IT SHALL NOT BE FORGIVEN HIM, NEITHER
IN THIS WORLD NEITHER IN THE WORLD TO COME.

JOHN 8:24 I SAID THERFORE UNTO YOU, THAT YE SHALL


DIE IN YOUR SINS: FOR IF YE BELIEVE NOT THAT I AM
HE, YE SHALL DIE IN YOUR SINS.

OF IGNORANCE – LEV:4:2SPEAK UNTO THE CHILDREN OF


ISRAEL, SAYING, IF A SOUL SHALL SIN THROUGH
IGNORANCE AGAINST ANY OF THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE
LORD CONCERNING THINS WHICH OUGHT NOT TO BE DONE,
AND SHALL DO AGAINST ANY OF THEM:

WILLFULLY – HEB 10:26 FOR IF WE SIN WILFULLY


AFTER THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE
TRUTH, THERE REMAINETH NO MORE SACRIFICE FOR
SINS,

D.CONSEQUENCES OF, AMONG THE UNSAVED


BLINDNESS – JOHN 9:41 JESUS SAID UNTO THEM, IF YE
WERE BLIND, YE SHOLD HAVE NO SIN: BUT NOW YE SAY,
WE SEE; THEREFORE YOUR SIN REMAINETH.

2 COR 4:3,4 3. BUT IF OUR GOSPEL BE HID, IT IS


HID TO THEM THAT ARE LOST; 4. IN WHOM THE GOD OF
THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THE MINDS OF THEM WHICH
BELIEVE NOT, LEST THE LIGHT OF THE GLORIOUS
GOSPEL OF CHRIST, WHO IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, SHOULD
SHINE UNTO THEM.

SERVITUDE – JOHN 8:34 JESUS ANSWERED THEM,


VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO YOU, WHOSOEVER
COMMITETH SIN IS THE SERVANT OF SIN.

INRECONCILABLE - 1 TIM 3:1-7

DEATH – ROM 6:23 FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH;


BUT FTHE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH
JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD

E. GOD'S ATTITUDE TOWARDS SIN

WITHOLDS MENS FROM – GEN 20:6 AND GOD SAID UNTO


HIM, IN A DREAM, YEA, I KNOW THAT THOU DIDST THIS
IN THE INTEGRITY OF THY HEART; FOR I ALSO
WITHHELD THEE FROM SINNING AGAINST ME: THEREFORE
SUFFERED I THEE NOT TO TOUCH HER.

PUNISHES FOR – EX 32:34 THEREFORE NOW GO, LEAD


THE PEOPLE UNTO THE PLACE OF WHICH I HVE SPOKEN
UNTO THEE: BEHOLD, MINE ANGEL SHALL GO BEFORE
THEE: NEVERTHELESS IN THE DY WHEN I VISIT I WILL
VISIT THEIR SIN UPON THEM.

PROVIDES A FOUNTAIN FOR – ZECH 13:1IN THAT DAY


THERE SHALL BE A FOUNTAIN OPENED TO THE HOUSE OF
DAVID AND TO THE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM FOR SIN
AND FOR UNCLEANESS.

BLOTS OUT – ISA 44:22 I HAVE BLOTTED OUT, AS A


THICK CLOUD, THY TRANSGRESSIONS, AND, AS A CLOUD,
THY SINS: RETURN UNTO ME; FOR I HVE REDEEMED THEE
CAST AWAY – MIC 7:19 HE WILL TURN AGAIN, HE WILL
HAVE COMPASSION UPON US: HE WILL SUBDUE OUR
INIQUITIES, AND THOU WILT CAST ALL THEIR SINS
INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA.

FORGIVES EX 34:7AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES GO,


GET THEE DOWN: FOR THY PEOPLE, WHICH THOU
BROUGHTEST OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT, HAVE
CORRUPTED THEMSELVES:

REMEMBERS NO MORE – JER 31:34 AND THEY SHALL


TEACH NO MORE EVERY MAN HIS NEIGHBOUR, AND EVERY
MAN HIS BROTHER SAYING KNOW THE LORD: FOR THEY
SHALL ALL KNOW ME, FROM THE LEAST OF THEM UNTO
THE GETEST OF THEM SAITH THE LORD: FOR I WILL
FORGIVE THEIR INIQUITY, AND I WILL REMEMBER THEIR
SIN NO MORE.

F. CHRIST'S RELATIONSHIP TO

FREE OF - SIN 1 JHON 3:5JESUS ANSWERED, VERILY


VERILY I SAY NTO THEE, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN OF
WATER AND OF THE SPIRIT, HE CANNOT ENTER INTO THE
KINGDOM OF GOD.

KNEW NO SIN – 2 COR 5:21 FOR HE HATH MADE HIM TO


BE SIN FOR US, WHO KNEW NO SIN; THAT WE MIGHT BE
MADE THE RIGHTOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM

MAKES MEN CONCSCIOUS OF – JOHN 15:22,24 22. IF I


HAD NOT COME AND SPOKEN UNTO THEM, THEY HAD NOT
HAD SIN: BUT NOW THEY HAVE NO CLOKE FOR THEIR
SIN. 24. IF I HAD NOT DONE ANMONG THEM THE WORKS
WHICH NONE OTHER MAN DID, THEY HAD NOOT HAD SIN:
BUT NOW HAVE THEY BOTH SEEN AND HATED BOTH ME AND
MY FATHER.

DIED FOR OUR SINS 1 COR 15:3 AND THOUGH I BESTOW


ALL MY GOODS TO FEED THE POOR AND THOUGH I GIVE
MY BODY TO BE BURNED, AND HAVE NOT CHARITY, IT
PROFITETH ME NOTHING

AS AN OFFERING FOR OUR SINS - ISA 53:10 YET IT


PLEASED THE LORD TO BRUISE HIM; HE HATH PUT HIM
TO GRIEF: WHEN THOU SHALT MAKE HIS SOUL AN
OFFERING FOR SIN, HE SHALL SEE HIS SEED, HE
SHALLP;ROLONG HIS DAYS, AND THE PLEASURE OF THE
LORD SHALL PROSPER IN HIS HAND.

HEB 9:28 SO CHRIST WAS ONCE OFFERED TO BEAR THE


SINS OF MANY; AND UNTO THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM
SHALL HE APPEAR THE SECOND TIME WITHOUT SIN UNTO
SALVATION.

SUBSTITUTIONARY – ISA 53:5,6 5. BUT HE WAS


WOUNDED FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS HE WAS BRUISED FOR
OUR INIQUITIES; THE CHASTISEMENT OF OUR PEACE WAS
UPON HIM; AND WITH HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED 6.
ALL WE LIKE SHEEP HAVE GONE ASTRAY; WE HAVE
TURNED EVERY ONE TO HIS OWN WAY; AND THE LORD
HATH LAID ON HIM THE INIQUITY OF US ALL

MATT 26:28 FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW


TESTAMENT, WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE
REMISSION OF SINS.

TAKES OUR SINS AWAY - JOHN 1:29 THE NEXT DAY JOHN
SEETH JESUS COMING UNTO HIM AND SAITH, BEHOLD THE
LAMB OF GOD WHICH TKETH AWAY THE SIN OF THE
WORLD.

SAVES HIS PEOPLE FROM SIN MATT 1:21 AND SHE SHALL
BRING FORTH A SON, AND THOU SHALT CALL HIS NAME
JESUS; FOR HE SHALL SAVE HIS PEOLE FROM THEIR
SINS

HAS POWER TO FORGIVE MATT 9:6BUT THAT YE MAY KNOW


THAT THE SON OF MAN HATH POWER ON EARTH TO
FORGIVE SIN THEN SAITH HE TO THE SICK ON THE
PALSY, ARISE, TAKE UP THY BED, AND GO UPTO THINE
HOUSE.

MAKES PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS HEB 2:17


WHEREFORE IN ALL THINGS IT BEHOVED HIM TO BE MADE
LIKE UNTO HIS BRETHREN, THAT HE MIGHT BE A
MERCIFUL AND FITHFUL HIGH PRIEST IN THING
PRETAINING TO GOD TO MAKE RECONCILIATION FOR SINS
OF THE PEOPLE
PURGES OUR SINS HEB 1:3 WHO BEING THE BRIGHTNESS
OF HIS GLORY, AND THE EXPRESSIMAGE OF HIS PERSON
AND UPHOLDING ALL THINGS BY THE WORD OF HIS
POWER, WHEN HE HAD BY HIMSELF PURGED OUR SINS,
SAT DOWN ON THE RIGHT HAND OF THE MAJESTY ON HIGH

CLEANES US FROM SIN 1 JOHN 1:7,9 7. BUT IF WE


WALK IN THE LIGHT AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT,WE HAVE
FELLOWSIP ONE WITH ANOTHER, AND THE BLOOD OF
JESUS CHRIST HIS SON CLEANSETH US FROM ALL SIN.
9.IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST
TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND TO CLEANSE US FROM
ALL UNRIGHTNESS.

WASHES US FROM SIN – REV 1:5 AND FROM JESUS


CHRIST, WHO IS THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, AND THE
FIRST BEGOTTEN OF THE DEAD, AND THE PRINCE OF THE
KINGS OF THE EARTH. UNTO HIM THAT LOVED US, AND
WASHED US FROM OUR SINS IN HIS OWN BLOOD.

G. TO REGENERATE WE MUST

ACKNOWLEDGE OUR SINS – PS 32:5 I ACKNOWLEDGED MY


SIN UNTO THEE, AND MINE INIQUITY HAVE I NOT HID.
I SAID, I WILL CONFESS MY TRANSGRESSIONS UNTO THE
LORD; AND THOU FORGAVEST THE INIQUITY OF MY SIN.
SELAH.

CONFESS OUR SINS PS 51:3,4 3. FOR I ACKNOWLEDGE


MY TRANSGRESSIONS: AND MY SIN IS EVER BEFORE ME.
4. AGAINST THEE, THEE ONLY, HAVE I SINNED, AND
DONE THIS EVIL IN THY SIGHT: THAT THOU MIGHTEST
BE JUSTIFIED WHEN THOU SPEAKEST, AND BE CLEAR
WHEN THOU JUDGEST.

BE SORRY FOR OUR SINS PS 38:18 FOR I WILL DECLARE


MINE INIQUITY; I WILL BE SORRY FOR MY SIN.

NOT SERVE SIN – ROM 6:6 KNOWING THIS, THT OUR OLD
MAN IS CRUCIFIED WITH HIM, THAT THE BODY OF SIN
MIGHT BE DESTROYED, THAT HENCEFORTH WE SHOULD NOT
SERVE SIN,
NOT OBEY SIN – ROM 6: 12LET NOT SIN THEREFORE
REIGN IN YOUR MORTAL BODY, THAT YE SHOULD OBEY IT
IN THE LUSTS THEREOF.

SUBDUE SIN ROM - 6:14-22

LAY ASIDE SIN - HEB 12:1 WHEREFORE SEEING WE ALSO


ARE COMPASSED ABOUT WITH SO GRET A CLOUD OF
WITNESSES, LET US LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT AND THE
SIN WHICH DOTH SO EASILY BESET US,AND LET US RUN
WITH PATIENCE THE RACE THT IS SET BEFORE US

RESIST SIN – HEB 12:4 YE HAVE NOT YET RESISTED


UNTO BLOOD, STRIVING AGAINST SIN

KEEP FROM SIN PS 19:13 HE HATH PUT MY BRETHER FAR


FROM ME AND MINE ACQUAINTANCE ARE VERILY
ESTRANGED FROM ME.

H. HELP AGAINST SIN

USE GOD'S WORD – PS 119:11 THY WORD HAVE I HID IN


MINE HERT, THAT I MIGHT NOT SIN AGINST THEE.

GUARD THE TONGUE – PS 39:1 I SAID WILL TAKE HEED


TO MY WAYS, THAT I SIN NOT WITH MY TONGUE: I WILL
KEEP MY MOUTH WITH A BRIDLE, WHILE THE WICKED IS
BEFORE ME.
WALK IN THE SPIRIT ROM 8;1-14

AVOID EVIL COMPANIONS – 1 TIM 5:22 LAY HANDS


SUDDENLY ON NO MAN, NEITHER BE PARTAKER OF OTHER
MEN'S SINS: KEEP THYSELF PURE.

CONFESS TO THE LORD 1 JOHN 1:8, 9 8. IF WE SAY


THAT WE HAVE NO SIN,WE DECEIVE OURSELVES, AND THE
TRUTH IS NOT IN US. 9. IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE
IS FAITHFULL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND
TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS

EXERCISE LOVE – 1PET 4:8AND ABOVE ALL THINGS HAVE


FERVENT CHARITY AMONG YOURSELVES: FOR CHARITY
SHALL COVER THE MULTITUDE OF SINS
GO TO THE ADVOCATE – 1 JOHN 2:1 MY LITTLE
CHILDREN, THESE THINGS WRITE I UNTO YOU, THAT YE
SIN NOT. AND IF ANY MAN SIN, WE HAVE AN ADVOCATE
WITH THE FATHER, JESUS CRHIST THE RIGHTEOUS:
NURMERICS IN THE BIBLE

NUMBERS HAVE A SPECIFIC MEANING IN THE BIBLE.


HOWEVER TO ACEPT THIS AS FACT WE HAVE TO PROVE IT
AND ARE REQUIRED TO DO IN 1THES 5:21 WHICH
STATES. “PROVE ALL THINGS; HOLD FAST TO THAT
WHICH IS GOOD”

1.GOD - THERE IS BUT ONE GOD.


2.DIVISION - CAIN AND ABLE, MALE AND FEMALE,THE
OLD TESTAMENT AND NEW TESTAMENT.
3.THE HOLY TRINITY - FATHER SON AND HOLY
SPIRIT.
4.CREATION - ALL THAT IS CREATED BY GOD
5.GRACE - YOU ARE SAVED BY GRACE.
6.MAN THE - NUMBER OF MAN BEING CREATED THIS
DAY
7. PERFECTION - COMPLETION THE DAY GOD RESTED.
8.JESUS - THE NEW BEGINING.
10.
40.PROBATION THE TIME OF TESTING.

NOW LET SEE IF WE CAN USE THESE NUMBER IN A


PASSAGE AND SEE IF THEY FIT THEIR DEFINATIONS.

GOLIATH THE MAN

HE STOOD 6 CUBITS VERSE 4

HELMENT OF BRONZE

COAT OF MAIL:

SHIN ARMOR OF BRONZE

JAVELIN OF BRONZE

SHIELD BEARER
SHIELD.

SIX PIECES THE ARMOURMENT OF MAN VERES 5,6,7

DAVID JESSE EIGHT SON VERSES 12,14

IN DAVID WAS ISRAELS' NEW BEGINNING.

FOR 40 DAYS GOLIATH CHALLENGED THE ARMY OF ISRAEL


TO BATTLE. THE TIME OF TESTING.

DID ANY OF SAULS' ARMY HAVE THE FAITH TO FACE


GOLIATH?

DAVID GOES TO BATTLE GOLIATH

DAVIS' ARMOURMENT

EPHESIANS 6:14-18

LOINS GIRDED ABOUT WITH TRUTH.

BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

FEET SHOD with THE GOSPEL

SHIELD OF FAITH

HELMENT OF SALVATION

SWORD OF THE SPIRITS

THEST SIX ITEMS MADE PERFECT BY PRAYING ALWAYS


WITH ALL PRAYERS AND SUPPLICATION IN THE SPIRIT.

THESE ARE THE SPIRITUAL THINGS DAVID TOOK IN


BATTLE WITH HIM

THE PHYSICAL THINGS WERE.

HE PRESENTED HIMSELF TO GOLIATH

STAFF
FIVE SMOOTH STONES

SHEPHERD BAG TO HOLD THE STONES

SLING

THESE FIVE THINGS ARE SYMBOLIC OF GRACE.

IT TOOK ONE ACT OF GRACE FOR DAVID TO SAVE


ISRAEL. HE TOOK ONE SMOOTH STONE FROM HIS BAG AND
KILLED GOLIATH.

THE STONES HAD TO BE SMOOTH OR PERFACT BECAUSE


GRACE IS PERFACE
MOSIC COVENANT

THE MOSIC COVENANT GIVEN AT SINAI WAS GIVEN TO


THE NATION ISRAEL SO THAT THOSE WHO BELIEVED
GOD'S PROMISE TO ABRAHAM WOULD KNOW HOW THEY
SHOULS CONDUCT THEMSELVES THE MOSAIC COVENANT IN
ITS ENTIRETY GOVERNED THREE AREAS OF THEIR LIVES.

1.THE COMMANDMENTS GOVERNED OUR PERSONAL LIVES,


FIRSTLY AS THEY RELATED TO GOD THEN AS IT
DEFINES HOW WE SHOULD ACT TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER.

LEV 20:1–26

2.THE JUDGEMENTS GOVERNED OUR SOCIAL LIVES,


PARTICULARLY AS THEY RELATED TO ONE ANOTHER

LEV 21:1 AND THE LORD SAID UNTO MOSES, SPEAK UNTO
THE PRIESTS, THE SONS OF AARON, AND SAY UNTO
THEM. THERE SHALL NONE BE DEFILED FOR THE DEAD
AMONG HIS PEOPLE:

LEV 19:28 YE SHALL NOT MAKE ANY CUTTINGS IN YOUR


FLESH FOR THE DEAD, NOR TATTOO ANY MARKS UPON
YOU: I AM THE LORD

LEV 24:11 AND THE ISRAELITISH WOMAN'S SON


BLASPHEMED THE NAME OF THE LORD, AND CURSED. AND
THEY BROUGHT HIM UNTO MOSES AND HIS MOTHER'S NAME
WAS SHELOMITH, THE DAUGHTER OF DIBRI OF THE TRIBE
OF DAN

3.THE ORDINANCE GOVERNED OUR RELIGIOUS LIVES SO


THAT THE PEOPLE WOULD KNOW HOW TO APPROACH GOD ON
HIS TERMS

LEV 24:12 AND THEY PUT HIM IN PRISON THAT THE


MIND OF THE LORD MIGHT BE SHOWN THEM.

WE MUST ASK FOR GUIDANCE FROM THE LORD FOR


EVERYTHING WE DO.
JOSHUA DID NOT FOLLOW GOD COMMANDS ABOUT THE
GIBEONITES JOSHUA CHAPTER 9 THEREFORE THEY WERE A
THORN IN THE ISRAELS SIDE

WE ARE CONVICTED OF SIN BY THE LAW

LAW – AN AUTHORITATIVE RULE OF CONDUCT

LAW OF MAN - LUKE 20:22 – 25 22 IS IT LAWFUL FOR


US TO GIVE TO CAESAR, OR NOT? 23 BUT HE PERCEIVED
THEIR CRAFTINESS, AND SAID UNTO THEM,WHY TEST YE
ME? 24 SHOW ME A DENARIUS. WHOSE IMAGE AND
SUPERSCRIPTION HATH IT? THEY ANSWERED, AND SAID,
CAESAR'S. 25 AND HE SAID UNTO THEM RENDER,
THEREFOR, UNTO CAESAR THE THINGS WHICH ARE
CAESAR'S AND UNTO GOD THE THINGS WHICH ARE GOD'S.

NATURAL LAW WRITTEN UPON THE HEART ROM 2:14,15


14 FOR WHEN THE GENTILES, WHO HAVE NOT THE LAW,
DO BY NATURE THE THINGS CONTAINED IN THE LAW,
THESE,HAVING NOT THE LAW, AND A LAW UNTO
THEMSELVES; 15 WHO SHOW THE WORK O THE LAW
WRITTEN IN THEIR HEARTS, THEIR CONSCIENCE ALSO
BEARING WITNESS, AND THEIR THOUGHTS THE MEANWHILE
ACCUSING OR ELSE EXCUSING ONE ANOTHER.

LAW OF MOSES GAL 3:17 – 21 17 AND THIS I SAY,


THAT THE COVENANT THAT WAS CONFIRMED BEFORE BY
GOD IN CHRIST, THE LAW, WHICH WAS FOUR HUNDRED
AND THIRTY YEARS AFTER, CANNOT ANNUL, THAT IT
SHOULD MAKE THE PROMISE OF NO EFFECT. 18 FOR IF
THE INHERITANCE BE OF THE LAW, IT IS NO MORE OF
PROMISE; BUT GOD GAVE IT TO ABRAHAM BY PROMISE.
19 WHEREFORE THEN SERVETH THE LAW? IT WAS ADDED
BECAUSE OF TRANSGRESSIONS, THE THE SEED SHOULD
COME TO WHOM THE PROMISE WAS MADE; AND IT WAS
ORDAINED BY ANGELS IN THE HAND OF A MEDIATOR, 20
NOW A MEDIATOR IS NOT A MEDIATOR OF ONE, BUT GOD
IS ONE. 21 IS THE LAW THEN AGAINST THE PROMISE OF
GOD? GOD FORBID; FOR IF THERE HAD BEEN A LAW
GIVEN WHICH COULD HAVE GIVEN LIFE, VERILY
RIGHTEOUSNESS SHOULD HAVE BEEN BY THE LAW.
ENTIRE OLD TESTAMENT JOHN 10:34 JESUS ANSWERED
THEM, IS IT NOT WRITTEN IN YOUR LAW, I SAID, YE
ARE GODS?
EXPRESSION OF GODS WILL ROM 7:2 – 9

OPERATING PRINCIPLES ROM 3:27 WHERE IS BOASTING


THEN? IT IS EXCLUDED. BY WHAT LAW? OR WORKS? NAY
BUT BY THE LAW OF FAITH

LAW OF MOSES

HISTORY

PROVERBS AND ECCLESIASTES

THE PREACHER IS THE AUTHOR OF BOTH BOOKS AND THEY ARE A


CONTRAST RATHER THAN A COUNTERDICTION.. THEY PIT THE
WISDOM OF GOD AGAINST THE UNDERSTANDING OF MAN WITHOUT
GOD

PROVERBS: PROVIDES A WAY OF LIFE UNDER GOD.

ECCLESIASTES: EMPHASISES THAT THERE IS NO MEANING TO LIFE


WITHOUT GOD.

HIS LAMENTING IN ECCLESIASTES COMES TO THE CONCLUSION,


THAT THE MATERIAL THINGS IN LIFE ARE WORTHLESS AND
USELESS. THAT SEEKING THE WISDON AND KNOWLEDGE OF GOD
ARE WHAT WE SHOULD PURSUE.

HE BRING ECCLESIASTIES TO A CONCLUSION BY SAYING “ FEAR


GOD, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS: FOR THIS IS THE WHOLE
DUTY OF MAN. FOR GOD SHALL BRING EVERY WORK INTO
JUDGEMENT, WITH EVERY SECRET THING, WHETHER IT BE GOOD
OR WHETHER IT BE EVIL.

THE PREACHER DOES NOT GIVE US A REASON WHY CERTAINS


THINGS HAPPEN IN LIFE JUST THAT THEY DO. BEING THE WISES
MAN THAT EVER LIVED WE SHOULD TAKE CONFORT IN THE FACT
THAT HIS CONCLUSION ARE THAT GOD IS THE ONLY WAY FOR A
FULLFILLING LIFE.
PEACE

RECENTLY WE RECEIVED A MINISTRY ON INTER PEACE OR PEACE


WITHIN OURSELF.

BECAUSE THE TOPIC IS SUBJECTIVE I WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS:

WHAT IT IS TO ME
HOW I CAN ACHIVE IT AND
WHY IT IS SO DIFFICULT TO ACHIVE

PEACE TO ME IS CONTENMENT OF THE SOUL:

THAT IS WHEN MY BODY, MIND AND SPIRIT ARE IN COMPLETE


HARMONY WHT GODS’ DESIRE FOR ME

HOW CAN I ACHIVE THIS:

ISA 26: 3, 4

THERE FORE I MUST TRUST IN THE LORD – THAT IS HAVE


COMPLETE FAITH IN THE LORD. THEN LET HIM BE MY SPIRIAL AND
PHYSICAL STRENTH.

HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO CONTINUALLY FOCUS ON GOD, TRUST IN


HIM AND LET HIM BE MY PHYSICAL AND SPIRIAUL STRENTH.

I WOULD LIKE TO USE ISRAEL EXODUS FROM EGYPT AS MY


EXAMPLE – GIVE BACKGROUND

EX 12: 35, 36 PAY DAY FOR OVER 400 YEARS OF SERVICE.

EX 12:37, 38 THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT LEFT EGYPT. GOD


PERMITTED OTHERS TO GO WITH THEM.

EX 13:3 RELY ON GOD FOR OUR PHYSICAL STRENTH.

EX 13:21 ISRAEL GIVEN A PILLAR OF A CLOUD. GOD IS PRESENT

EX 14: 10-12 STILL NO TRUST AFTER THE 10 PLAGUES.

EX 14:19 GO PROTECTS HIS PEOPLE AND IS THERE STRENTH.

EX 15:24 THREE DAY OUT AND STILL NO TRUST.

EX1 5:26 GODS’ PROMISE CARE FOR LAND AND PEOPLE.

EX16: 1-3 STILL NO TRUST

EX 16: 13, 15 GOD CONTINUES TO PROVIDES FOR HIS PEOPLE.


EX 16:22 GOD PROVIDES FOR THE SABBATH
EX 16:27 ISRAEL THE LORD STILL NO TRUST IN THE LORD
PROVIDING FOR THEIR NEEDS.

EX 17: 2-4 NO TRUST – MOSES GETS FLUSTRATED.

EX 17:6 GOD PROVIDE IS A COMPASSIONATE GOD

EX 19: 4-6 GOD GIVES ISRAEL THE FIFTH DISPENSATION OR THE


MOSIC COVENANT

EX 23: 20-2 GODS’ STRENTH IS OUR STRENTH GODS’ WARNING GODS’


PROMISE

EX 32:4 THE GOLDEN CALF. THE BREAKING OF THE 2ND


COMMANDANT.

THE MULTITUDE THAT LEFT WITH ISRAEL MAY HAVE CAUSED THE
CALF TO BE BUILT AS THE COW WAS IMPORTANT IN EGYPTIAN
IDOLTERY. THE MAKING OF THIS CALF SHOWED THAT THE PEOPLE
WERE UNWILLING TO:

ACCEPT GOD – TO LET GOD PROTECT THEM , BE THERE STRENTH


NOR DID THEY WANT GOD TO PROVIDE FOR THEM. IT WAS A TOTAL
REJECTION OF GOD.

EX 32:33-35 GODS’ JUSTICE AND GODS’ COMPASSION FOR HIS


PEOPLE.

EX 33:1-6 GODS’ PROMISE AND GODS’ WARNING.

IN LIGHT OF ALL OF THIS CAN I EVER ACHIVE PEARCE, KNOWING


GOD IS FAITHFUL, GOD IS PATIENT AND GOD IS COMPASSIONATE.

YES I CAN, THE WAY IS NOT EASY BUT I CAN DO IT.

EACH TIME I STUDY GODS’ WORD AND MEDITATE ON THE WORD I


FIND PEACE AND CONTENMENT.

EACH IME I GO TO MY QUITE PLACE AND PRAY I FIND PEACE AND


CONTENMENT.

EACH TIME I INERACT WITH MANKIND IN A WAY THAT HONORS


GOD I FIND PEACE AND CONTENMENT:

SHALL WE PRAY

LORD THANK YOU FOR SHOWING ME THE WAY TO BE AT PEACE


AND IN COMLETE HARMONY WITH YOUR DESIRES FOR ME. THANK
YOU FOR COMPASSION AND PATIENCE WITH ME WHEN I FALL OF
OF HARMONY WITH YOU AMEN.
