THE WORK OF GOD-21ST CENTURY
Proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom of God Ministering to its Members scattered abroad Email: theworkofgod.21stcentury@gmail.com

MISSION STATEMENT
We Have One Sole Mission: TO DO THE GREATEST COMMISSION IN ALL THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD This covers well defined, clear,
and simple things to do: • To Proclaim THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD again to all the peoples speaking different languages. To them who inhabit and dwell in different countries, nations, and nationstates. To proclaim it to their kings and monarchs, their top leaders in the Eastern Hemisphere, (Rev. 10:11). To bring the EVERLASTING GOSPEL into these vast lands and continents, over many mountains, across oceans, and seas, from the space above, and the space below, (Mat 28:18-20; Mk 16:15-18; Lk 24:46-49). To Preach, by the spoken word, the Good News of Christ’s return to establish the KINGDOM OF GOD (Mat 24:14), that will reign and rule the whole world from the eternal capital city of Jerusalem, (Jer 3:17; Zech 14:3-9; Obad 21; Isa 2:2-4). To PUBLISH, by the written word, the Good Tidings of the end of this present evil world. And the beginning of the NEW WORLD coming (Mk 13:10; Isa 52:7), First for a thousand years. To restore the original GARDEN OF EDEN planetwide.

6

To be followed by the RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD, all rising into a worldwide PARADISE. And ALL to live for a hundred years. And then forever in the New Heaven and the New Earth. To spread to all the Universe, (Mark 13:10; Acts 3:21; Rev 5:10; 20:4; Isa 65:20; Rev 20:11-15; Rev 21:1-7). • To announce the arrival of the New Order of The Ages under the DIVINE GOVERNMENT OF GOD RULED BY THE KING of kings and LORD of lords, (Isa 9:6-7; Zech 14:3-9; Isa 2:2-4); assisted by 144,000 immortal kings and priests, (Rev 14:1). The Kingdom of God will rule over the remnants of the Great Tribulation and the 7 Last Plagues, one-tenth of the world’s population (Isa 6:11-13; 24:1-21; 26:19; Mat 24:21-22; Rev 6:4, 8; 8:11; 9:11, 15), who will be left alive, and considered worthy to be taught God’s Word, God’s Will, God’s Way, and do God’s Work, (Isa 2:1-4), and understand the deep things of God. All working together cheerfully and joyfully to build the civilization of the Millennium under God, to shine in truth and in righteousness (Isa 26:9), and in peace (Isa 32: 17-18). To TEACH the pure WORD of GOD. To announce that the Good News of True Salvation is now being fully PREACHED and PUBLISHED among all the Gentiles. To bear the wonderful Good News that the door to the Gentiles has now been opened wide by the Captain of Salvation, the Author and Finisher of the Faith, the CHRIST of GOD, (Acts 14:27; 18:6; 28:28; Col. 1:27). To make it known to them that their true hope is in CHRIST JESUS. To be PROCLAIMED to all of them without fail that the hope, and TIMES of the Gentiles is soon to be fulfilled, (Mat 28:19; Rom 11:11, 12, 13, 18; 15:16; Eph 3:6; 2 Tim. 1:11; Lk 21:24). To finally make known, reveal, make crystal clear, that the ULTIMATE FINAL DESTINY OF MAN IS TO BE BORN AGAIN INTO THE GOD FAMILY AND KINGDOM, OF GOD, BORN OF THE SPIRIT, BORN OF GOD, IMMORTAL, ONE IN GOD, (Gen 1:26-27; Jn 3:3-21; Jn 17:21).

• •

To carry the WARNING, and for it to be a WITNESS to these eastern nations. To DECLARE the arrival of the PROPHESIED DISTRESS and TUMULT among the nations, (Col 1:28; Acts 1:8). That this shall be made intense by the arrival of the PROPHESIED worldwide DECEPTION, (Mat 24:4-5; 11:23-26). To sound the trumpet and push the button of the alarms of WAR, even as the world is swamped with RUMORS OF WARS, (Mat 24:6-7). To WARN and TELL to the peoples of the East that the FOUR HORSEMEN of the Apocalypse now rides with ferocious vigor. Their long journeys across the millennia beginning from inside of the GARDEN OF EDEN launched by the lying evil and wicked serpent,, and will soon climax in the destruction of the wicked one and his legions as evil and wicked, that old serpent Satan the devil and his deceived fallen angels, (Rev 6:2 {white}; 6:4 {red}; 6:5 {black}; 6:8 {pale}. To announce the arrival of the prophesied EARTHQUAKES, of FAMINES, of PESTILENCES, and ALL THESE shall be the BEGINNING OF SORROWS, (Mat 24:7-8). To warn of the presence of the prophesied FALSE PROPHETS, who, from among them, the many will look to as unto gods, (Mat 24:1, 23-28). That the Work of God - 21st Century, is now here. Having been raised by the Living Christ to commence the great beginnings of this phase of the Work of God. ”Because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth,” and for us His loyal servants, a short time to do it in, (Rom 9:28). That we are NOT out to try to convince, NEITHER to forcibly try to convert anybody, or anyone, anywhere, anytime. Yet we must, as commanded by the Apostle and High Priest of our Profession, teach all men everywhere to repent for the remission of sins, and to do all things that Christ the Son of God has commanded us. (Mat 28:19-20; Lk 24:47).

8

That we earnestly teach and actively practice THE WAY OF PEACE, (Mat 5:9; I Tim 2:2; Jas 3:17). For the world lost knowledge of the way of peace (Rom 3:17; Isa 59:8). That we enthusiastically TEACH and faithfully PRACTICE the Way to LOVE GOD with all our heart, our soul, and our mind, with all our strength, and with all our understanding, (Mat 22:37; Mk 12:30, 33; Lk 10:27). That we sincerely teach, and continually practice THE WAY TO LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR AS WE LOVE OURSELVES, (Mat 5:43; 19:19; 22:39; Mk 12:31; Lk 10:27; Rom 13:9; Gal 5:14; Jas 2:8). That we diligently teach and zealously practice HOW TO HAVE TRUE SUCCESS now in this time, and in the world to come, SPIRITUAL SUCCESS with EVERLASTING LIFE, (Mat 6:33; Mk 10:28-30; Jn 13:17; Isa 58:13-14). That we seriously teach and lovingly practice turning back the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, (Mal 4:6). That we gently, tenderly, patiently FEED and NOURISH SPIRITUALLY THE FLOCK for whom Christ The Redeemer, the Lamb of GOD died, and purchased with His own blood, (John 21:15, 16, 17; Acts 20:28; I Pet 5:2). That we compassionately, mercifully, and so kindly HEAL THE SICK, (Lk 9:1,2; 10:9), when we encounter them as we go our way to proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. That we do practice pure religion undefiled before God and make visits and care for the helpless orphans, the fatherless, and the widows in their affliction, (Jas 1:27). That we point to the nations and its peoples, and families, that the Eternal Creator God has left a window open for the blessing of health and prosperity to be known if they would be glad and sing for joy, and PRAISE THE GOD OF CREATION

9

for all His wonderful works! That they would learn to PRAY and PRAISE the Everlasting LORD, (Ps 67:1-7; Ps 147:1-20; 148:1-14; 149:1-9; 150;1-6; Mat 26.30; Mk 14.26; Eph 5.19; Col 3:16; Jas 5:13). • Ultimately, we have to open the minds of the multitude to the difference between the holy, and the profane, (Ezek 22:26; 44:23), to the end that we can turn many to righteousness, (Dan 12:3). Not by might, nor by power but by God’s Spirit, (Zech 4:6). For this is God’s Will. By His Word. On His Way. To fulfill His Work.

All these, to FEARLESSLY and COURAGEOUSLY PREPARE THE WAY for the return of the GREAT GOD, our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, King of kings, and Lord of lords, (Mat 24:14; Mk 13:10; Titus 2:13; Rev 17:14; 19:16). THIS IS THE VISION THAT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST INSPIRES FOR THE WORK OF GOD – 21ST CENTURY TO DO IN THE ENTIRE EASTERN HEMISPHERE.

email address: theworkofgod.21stcentury@gmail.com

Dear Friend,
RECEIVE YOUR GIFT OF DIVINE LIGHT FOR TOTAL ENLIGHTENMENT FROM THE ETERNAL CREATOR GOD OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. HE DESIGNED THE WHOLE CREATION TO BE INHERITED BY THE HUMAN RACE. ALL THE HUMAN FAMILIES HAVE THEIR HERITAGE IN EVERYTHING THAT THE DIVINE MAKER OF ALL THINGS GOOD, BEAUTIFUL AND WONDERFUL EVER MADE. THE ALL MERCIFUL, BLESSED SOVEREIGN OF ALL THE WORLDS LOOKS AT OUR PLANET EARTH, HIS SHINING JEWEL ORBITING IN OUTER SPACE AROUND THE CREATED SUN. HE SEES NO BOUNDARIES ON ALL THE LANDS AND SEAS. HE SEES NO BLACK SKIN. NEITHER YELLOW. NOR WHITE. NOT ANY BROWN. HE CONSIDERS NO RACIAL DIVIDES. HE SEES NOT RICH MAN’S GOLD, NEITHER POOR MAN’S PENNIES IN THEIR HANDS. HE SEES NOT THE SCEPTRES AND CROWNS ON THE HEADS, NEITHER THE PLOWS AND SPEARS HELD BY THE ARMS. NONE IN ALL THESE THAT HE CREATED IN HIS IMAGE, IN HIS LIKENESS. HE LOOKS INTO THEIR HEARTS! ULTIMATELY, THE SONS OF MAN, BORN OF WOMAN, WERE MADE TO BECOME THE CHILDREN OF GOD, THEY WERE MADE TO INHERIT, AND TO TAKE POSSESSION, OF ALL THE CREATED WORLDS, AND THEREAFTER, BY THE GRACE AND WILL OF GOD, ESTABLISH PEACE, AND SPREAD THE INFINITE BLESSINGS OF HAPPINESS AND JOY FOREVERMORE IN ALL OF THEM! BEGINNING WITH THE NEW WORLD SOON TO COME. SEE! IT IS JUST ACROSS THE NOT DISTANT HORIZON. THERE, LOOK, IT IS JUST AROUND THE BEND!

11

SO AMAZING, INDEED! FAR BEYOND AND SO WAY ABOVE ALL THAT THE CREATIVE IMAGINATIONS OF SCIENCE FICTION WRITERS COULD POSSIBLY VISUALIZE. BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS, IN INFINITY NO FUTURIST COULD EVEN BEGIN TO CONCEIVE: THE GLORY AND WONDER OF THE WORLD TO COME! NO REVERED MYSTICS OF THE ORIENT, OF PROFOUNDEST DISCERNING, WOULD CONDESCEND TO EVER GLIMPSE INTO THESE EVERLASTING PROMISES AND VERITIES AS THE TRUE REALITY. NO PHILOSOPHERS OF THE WEST, OF MOST RESPECTED REPUTE AND KEENEST INTELLECT, COULD RATIONALIZE THESE UNDENIABLE ABSOLUTES. NO WORLD RENOWNED SCIENTIST OF SHARPEST ACUITY IN EVERY AGE COULD MEASURE NEITHER QUANTIFY, LET ALONE QUALIFY: THE AWESOME MARVELS OF THE MIND AND WISDOM OF GOD, HIS EVERLASTING MERCY, AND HOW, BY HIS WORD AND COMMAND, THE WHOLE UNIVERSE CAME TO BE. THESE PIERCING INVISIBLE PRINCIPLES AND INVIOLABLE EDICTS, THESE DECREES AND EXPRESSIONS OF DIVINE WILL DRAWN FROM THE HOLY WRIT SET INTO THESE WORDS AND SPOKEN TO YOU ARE SPIRIT, AND THEY ARE LIFE. THESE ARE SENT FOR YOU AND TO YOU. THEY SHALL NOT RETURN TO THE DIVINE AND HOLY ONE THAT SENT THEM EMPTY, NEITHER VOID. THE ORDAINED PURPOSE FOR WHICH THEY WERE SENT WILL BE FULFILLED. THIS IS THE INVIOLATE WILL OF GOD. FINALLY, THE MEANING OF MEANING, WHICH ANSWER HAS BEEN SOUGHT FOR AGES, CAN NOW BE UNDERSTOOD. THIS, NO WALKING AVATAR BEFORE, TODAY, AND HEREAFTER EVER DID, AS CRYSTAL CLEAR, EVER LOGICALLY EXPLAIN, OR COULD, CONFIDENTLY, TRUTHFULLY PROCLAIM. NO SCHOLAR OF DEEPEST RESEARCH COULD THE GLORIOUS TRUTH EVER FOUND. NO HISTORIAN OF THE PROFOUNDEST BREADTH AND DEPTH COULD EVER FULLY UNDERSTAND AND TO ORDINARY LAYMAN EXPOUND, LEAST OF ALL: WHY HISTORY KEEPS REPEATING ITSELF: THE SHOCKING TRUE STORY OF HOW THE FAMILY OF MAN TURNED BACK AND DEPARTED FROM THE PRESENCE OF

12

GOD FROM THE BEGINNING AND WENT THEIR WAY. MAN’S PROUD WAY. MAN’S DEFIANT DUALIZED THOUGHTS FROM DUALIZED MINDS. MAN’S FLAWED, STUBBORN WILL. MAN’S VAIN WORKS. ALL UNDER THE SWAY OF SATAN THE DEVIL, FOR SIX THOUSAND YEARS. IN ALL ITS ENTIRETY. THAT IT MUST NOW COME TO AN END. TOTALLY UPROOTED. FULLY BURNED UP. AND THE 1,000 YEARS OF GLORIOUS CIVILIZATION UNDER THE ETERNAL CREATOR GOD AND HIS KINGDOM MUST SOON BEGIN! THE HIGHEST HEIGHTS IN THE ENTIRE COSMOS TAUGHT BY THE MOST ACCOMPLISHED YOGI, THE ENLIGHTENED GURU, THE REVERED MASTER, THE HONORED EARTHLY PATRIARCHS OF ALL RELIGIOUS FAITHS, THE FOREMOST NEW AGE UTOPIAN DREAMERS. THE WORSHIPPED SHAMANS, HAVE THEIR LIMITED CORRESPONDENCE OF THE MIND AND SPIRIT ROVING AND REVOLVING IN THE MYSTICAL AND SECULAR REALM AND FAINT LIGHT OF THE SURROUNDING CREATED EXISTING COSMOS. ALL OF THESE WHO HAVE LED MANKIND FOR SIX THOUSAND YEARS SEE THE COLLECTIVE RESULT. THE FINAL BOTTOMLINE. THE REPEATING CYCLES OF THE RISE AND FALL OF CIVILIZATIONS WITHOUT FAIL. YOU SEE IT YOURSELF. BLESSED ARE YOU, FOR ALL OF THESE HAVE LONGED TO KNOW AND SEE WHAT YOU NOW READ AND HOLD IN YOUR HANDS, AND COULD NOT, AND HAVE NOT! FOR THESE ARE DELIVERED FROM ABOVE BEYOND THE DEFINED BORDERS OF THE CREATED UNIVERSE. NOW REVEALED, AND MADE KNOWN FROM THE DIVINE DIMENSION OF UNAPPROACHABLE LIGHT WHERE THE EVERLASTING GOD DWELLS. NOW ALL THESE TERRESTRIAL HIGH THINGS MUST CEDE AND YIELD TO THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD WHICH UNVEILS THE FULL PANOPLY OF THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD AND THE GLORIOUS HEAVENLY TRUTH THAT SETS MAN FREE. FREE FROM SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY. LIBERATED FROM SPIRITUAL BONDAGE BY THE WICKED ONE, “THE GREAT DRAGON…THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL, AND SATAN, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD,” (REV. 12:9, 10; 20:3, 10).

READ THIS THEN. SKIM IT NOT. REREAD IT. SLOWLY, IF YOU WILL. AT YOUR OWN PACE. FOCUS FOR A TIME. ONE PART AT A TIME. MEDITATE ON THESE IN YOUR MORNINGS. CONTEMPLATE ON IT AT NOON. DWELL UPON THESE IN THE EVENTIDES. THEN LINK THEM UP FOR THEY FIT PERFECTLY WELL. THEN YOU WILL SEE THE WONDERFUL WHOLE. THERE IS NO TIME LIMITATION. THERE IS NO ONE TO PUSH YOU ON. AND DO PRAY. THE ANCIENT PROPHET DANIEL, ERSTWHILE PRESIDENT OF ALL THE GOVERNORS OF THE KINGDOM OF BABYLON, UNDER KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR, OF THE GREATEST EMPIRE IN HISTORY, PRAYED THREE TIMES A DAY. IT WAS THE KEY TO HIS AWESOME SUCCESS. YOU, ALSO, COULD. NOW IT IS IN YOUR HANDS. IT IS YOURS. CHERISH IT AS UNTO A TREASURE PRICELESS BEYOND COUNTING. FOR NOW, THE TRUE RICHES AND THE SECRET OF IMMORTALITY IS IN YOUR HANDS, IT HAS ARRIVED IN YOUR LIFE. AT LAST! NOW SEIZE IT. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER LET IT GO! THE GIVER OF LIFE AND LIGHT SENDS THIS DIVINE BEAM. THIS SACRED FIRE. THIS HOLY TORCH. TO ENTER YOUR MIND'S EYE. INTO YOUR INNERMOST BEING. INTO THE WHOLE FABRIC OF YOU, A LIVING SOUL. FOR YOUR INEVITABLE UNDERSTANDING. AT YOUR OWN PACE. ONLY BETWEEN YOU AND HiM. IS THIS NOT WONDERFUL? WHEN THE TIME AND MOMENT OF YOUR ILLUMINATION COMES, YOU WOULD KNOW.

PREFACE

T

he amazing story of mankind is stored in a big part in

the storied chronicles of the churches of mankind. Whether they be in quaint little villages. Charming towns. Cities of whatever size and configuration. There the churches have been formed. From the proverbial mustard seed, in most cases. And they grew in size and form along with the growth and size of their place of residence and locale. In many, there are but a few churches, and small number of members. In a few, there is the one dominant big church of numerous members, surrounded by lowprofile other churches with different names, and small numbers of members. The traditions of men have been cultivated and formed in the churches originally formed. Homegrown, these traditions are loved. The people in them stick to them, and protect it with their lives and fortunes. Thereby, they hate, and are repelled by, tradition-breakers.

29

The traditions they derived from their sacred scriptures are kept by them with much awe. Much reverence. With fidelity. And loyalty. The tradition they received from their forefathers. That went down from generation to generation. The latter are held in cultic affection. They live and die for these traditions. And so the saying: “What’s good enough for my father, and his father before him. is good enough for me.” They have traditionally wedded their homegrown traditions with the faith they believed was derived from their holy scriptures that they have agreed to use. Whether personally, or as a church. As an assembly, or a congregation, of like-minded believers in the worship of their chosen deity, god, or gods.. They have embellished their assemblies, presided by their chosen religious leaders. They are seen garbed in extraordinary vestments, that seems holy to them. They carry out their religious services with solemn rites and emblems. They intone memorized prayers in numbers of times. They use organs played with solemn sounds. With lofty notes of music. With stirring hymns.

30

So, beware, if you would be one who would dare! Your MESSAGE AND THE TRUTH YOU BEAR AND BRING OUGHT TO BE, AND MUST BE, THE REAL TRUTH. Lest you come in bearing nebulous doctrines. And cause to fall many to the ditch of spiritual confusion and destruction. This duality is intrinsically, even tacitly, believed and retained, in all the churches. They devised this dichotonomous arrangement. For they live as mortals, flesh and blood, born of women. The demands and necessities of their continued survival, their being, and their living, forced them to do so. They learned, over time, how to master this dual skill, almost schizophrenic approach in their mind and being. For is not man a reasoning, thinking one (animal, to vocal evolutionists and majority of published scientists. Human, to majority of the others)? Religion and church are intertwined from way back in ancient times. The community of believers throughout the ages generally fellowship with each other, particularly those that share the same body of beliefs, and traditions.
31

Hence, the arising and existence today of myriad denominations called churches. {Today’s freedom of religion, attained with the sacrifice, blood, sweat, and tears of those who bravely fought for it in the religious wars, has its blessings and upside. The downside comes when the believers are misled and deceived by charismatic men who profess to be chosen by God. The long term harm this kind of false teachings by false teachers, however sincere, is incalculable} They diverged over time. They were influenced by dominant personalities who imposed their claimed revelations. Their claimed visions. And men looking for leaders and a hope that comes with it, went and followed these. They gave this, or that, one their allegiance. Their devotion. Along with their fortune. They were deceived by these alleged deliverers. False messiahs. False prophets. They were swept by these militant charlatans, pied pipers, and verbose speakers. Swept by their charisma. Spellbound by their thespian talents. Over time, as they became multitude, they became adversaries. Each side willed to impose their persuasions to others.

32

They went and formed different manners of worship, and believed in myriad gods. These insisted their god is God. And they adapted nomenclatures to establish their different identity from the others, now competitors and rivals. They built architectural structures to fellowship and worship in. They called them chapels. Cathedrals. Basilica. Temples. Tabernacles. Mosques. Minstrels. Houses of worship. Synagogues. And more. IS THERE A ONE TRUE CHURCH? There could only be one Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. And He built His Church. This be the household of GOD. It has been two millennia. His Church has been persecuted thru all that twenty centuries. Continual hateful, vicious, violent attempts to extinguish it has come, and gone. And will return. Till the very return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The adversary, Satan, the devil, that old dragon, never stops. Along with his wicked minions. Espionage and infiltration has been used.
33

Pre-meditated takeover, and watering down of all the true doctrines of God, even denying them altogether, has been made. The Church that Jesus, the Christ of God, built, thru the truly faithful and true believers and practitioners of good courage, carries on. Though the spiritual path remains narrow, and few be they that were willing to walk therein. He said: “The gates of hell (DEATH, GRAVE) shall not prevail against it,”, (Gospel Book of Matthew 16:18-19). IT DID NOT. AND IS ALIVE TODAY! THE WONDERFUL STORY MUST BE TOLD
THIS SACRED GOLDEN SCROLL SERIES IS THE AMAZING, REALLY SPELLBINDING, TRULY ENLIGHTENING STORY OF THE TRUE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, AND OF CHRIST. THE STORY WAS NOT DONE IN A CORNER. AS A MATTER OF FACT, ALL HISTORY IS WITNESS THAT THE ONE WHO FOUNDED AND BUILT THE CHURCH OF GOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS PUBLICLY HOUNDED, FALSELY ACCUSED, OPENLY TORTURED, MADE TO CARRY A WOODEN CROSS. AND FINALLY HANGED, SHED HIS PRECIOUS LIFEBLOOD, AND DIED IN THE SIGHT OF MEN AND WOMEN WITNESSES, ON CALVARY, A HIGH PLACE OF ROCK IN JERUSALEM. 34

THE DETERMINED ADVERSARY OF GOD’S HEIRS OF SALVATION, CALLED SATAN. THE INVISIBLE DEVIL, AND HIS MALIGNANT, SIMILARLY INVISIBLE, DEMONS AND WICKED SPIRITS,, HAVE CEASELESSLY TRIED TO EXTINGUISH THE SPIRITUAL BODY OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AS HE HAS CAUSED HIS PHYSICAL BODY TO BE MURDERED AND HANGED ON A TREE, A ROMAN CROSS, ON CALVARY. THE GOD OF HEAVEN NOW SPEAKS TO BRIGHTLY SHINE, TO MOST POWERFULLY RADIATE THE ILLUMINATING LIGHT OF THE TRUTH OF THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, THE PILLAR AND BULWARK OF THE TRUTH, TO ALL THE PEOPLES OF THE EASTERN HEMISPHERE.

THOUSANDS, OF BELIEVERS HAVE COME TO ACCEPT THAT THEY MUST JOIN A CHURCH. There is fellowship there. Other fellow human beings are there. A congregation of like-minded believers are there. There, friendships are made. Families get together. Weddings celebrated. Fond memories are remembered. Essentially, most everyone believes that salvation is obtained or received thru the church. IS THIS TRUE? THAT THEY MUST JOIN A CHURCH? CAN YOU JOIN THE TRUE CHURCH OF GOD? Today, there are hundreds of millions of human beings, two billion plus, all told, who profess the Christian faith, and are called Christians. Christianity, as a religion, is embraced by more than one third of mankind, All these profess the Name of Jesus Christ. 37

All these claim to the worship of, and allegiance to, GOD. And about two-thirds of the religious of mankind are connected thru the bloodlines of the patriarch Abraham, father of many nations, called the father of the faithful, (Epistle to the Romans 4:16-18).

THE BOOK IN TWO VOLUMES
This Sacred Golden Scroll Series XCI Is a big book of twenty four truth-laden chapters. So it will come in two volumes. There are two levels of the Church of the Living God: 1. The VISIBLE congregation, composed of mortals, born of woman, flesh and blood. They bear the NAME OF THE FATHER: GOD. SO Church of God. Christ asked His Father so, (Gospel Book of John 17:11). Yet they are the churches of Christ, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 11:16). First Part, or Level 1 – The physical listed members who bear the SIGN: SABBATH KEEPING, or they are called Sabbath KEEPERS. And TEN COMMANDMENTS KEEPERS. THAT IS THE LETTER OF THE LAW. Second Part, or Level 2 – The Spirit of the Church of the Living God, pillar and ground (bulwark) of the truth. They live in, by, and with, the Spirit of the Law of Love, because they are baptized, laidhands on Spirit-begotten, converted, children of God, (Book of Acts 6:6; 8:17). 38

> They are meek. They are humble. They are peacemakers. > Their very conduct reflects the Spirit of God in them. > The fruit of the Spirit is manifested in their love, faith, hope,

gentleness and tenderness, in their peace and calm demeanor, goodness, patience, and in their righteousness, humility and meekness, temperance and moderation, in word, in thought, and in
deed, (Epistle to the Galatians 5:22-23) Not for their own glory. But giving credit, tribute, and all for the glory, praise, and honor of God. John 15:2; Eph. 5:9; Col. 3:12 > The essence. The substance, of the Church of God. The spirits are subject to them, and their names are listed – written in heaven, (Gospel Book of Luke 10:20), as they written in the Book of Life, (Epistle to the Philippians 4:3). > They are not self-righteous, neither vain, about their calling and profession, but dwell among the earth’s inhabitants, their neighbors and fellowmen, in true humility, in a spirit of harmony. > They never give the impression that the rest of mankind is left out, condemned to everlasting hell. Such an idea is absolutely untrue. Most certainly ungodly. A deceiving lie by deceived persons, unscrupulously passing out deceitful, diabolical, cruel lies and doctrines of devils. For God our Saviour wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, (First Epistle to Timothy 2:3-4). God wants everyone everywhere to repent. The truth is revealed in this Sacred Golden Scroll. 39

> They seek to be of helpful service to them continually. They live in the righteousness of God. They abide both by the visible, codified letter, and in the spirit, of the Ten Commandments of God (LOVE), (Books of Exodus 20:1-17; Deuteronomy 10:13; 10:4) which are holy, just and good, (Epistle to the Romans 7:12). They are, indeed, a peculiar people, in the true meaning of the word, as the Holy Scriptures so defined, (Book of Deuteronomy 14:2; 26:18; First Epistle Peter 2:9). THIS DEFINES AND BARES THE IDENTITY, AND THE MEANING, OF THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY, (Epistle to the Ephesians 3:9).

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

Chapter One

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CHURCH OF GOD
BEFORE YOU PROCEED: Of utmost, even foremost, importance, you must understand the real truth about the Church. In many ways, it is opposite to what many believe what the Church is, and what it is all about. BE FOREWARNED. Yes, there is the Church that Jesus built. And as Christ designed it to be, it is the Family of God on earth, (Epistle to the Ephesians 3:13-14). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE. There are a number of many other things about the Church of God that now you must understand. > As it is called “ekklesia” in the original Greek, it means “called out ones”. 41

> It is also called the Body of Christ, (Epistle to the Ephesians 1:2223), of which He is the Head. The Body has many members, everyone members of one another, (Epistle to the Romans 12:5; First Corinthians 12:14). ! Cor 12;12; Eph 4:16 SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. > The Church has a name. It is called ‘CHURCH OF GOD”. (Twelve scriptures of the New Testament Scriptures give the name: Church of God). {WHAT’S IN A NAME?} In two places, it is called the Churches of Christ, (Epistles to the Romans 16:16; First to the Corinthians 11:15), because He built it. {see page ). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. > The Church is described, metaphorically, as a woman. (Woman in the wilderness to be kept safe from the great tribulation, (Book of Revelation 12: 1-2, 5-6, 16-17). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. > The Church is claimed and pronounced by the Lord Jesus Christ as His Bride. To be kept pure. And spotless, prepared for her Wedding with the Bridegroom, Jesus Christ, (Book of Revelation 21:2, 9). SO IT IS WRITTEN. SO THE CHURCH OF GOD BELIEVES. 42

> The Church is described as a spiritual organism. It is composed of visible physical human members. They become the spiritual congregation of the saints, spirit-begotten, children of God, and led by the Spirit of God, hence, sons of God, recipient of the Spirit of adoption, (Epistle to the Romans 8:14-15). THEY WERE CARNAL AND SECULAR, BEFORE THEY BECAME SPIRITUAL, AND SPIRIT-LED MEMBERS OF THE BODY OF CHRIST, THEY WERE THE LIVING, WALKING DEAD. NOTE: ALL OF IT IN THE PAST TENSE. THEY WERE ALIENS IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL.WITHOUT HOPE. WITHOUT GOD IN THE WORLD. THEY WERE NOT PART OF THE COVENANTS OF PROMISE. THEY WERE WILD GRAPES, SO SPEAK, (Epistle to the Ephesians 2:1, 5, 11-14). NOW, AS ADOPTED CHILDREN OF GOD, ALL SINS FORGIVEN, THEY ARE MADE PURE. IN THE PRESENT TENSE, CONTUOUSLY. THERE IS NO MORE CONDEMNATION. BY CONTINUAL REPENTANCE, THEY ARE EVER MADE CONTINUALLY NEW. EVERGREEN, SO TO SPEAK, (Epistle to the Romans 8:1). SO IT WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVES. > The doctrines of GOD, and the Lord Jesus Christ are proclaimed and practiced in, and by, the Church of God.

43

SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE.

THE MASTERPLAN OF CREATION OF THE IMMORTAL SONS OF GOD
> They carry the sign that they are GOD’s people, and that GOD is their God, and that is the SEVENTH DAY SABBATH, (Books of Exodus 31:13, 17; 20:8; Leviticus 19:3, 30; of the prophet Ezekiel 20:12, 20). > And the Annual SABBATHS, The Feast Days of The LORD. (Book of Leviticus 23:1-4). Which they faithfully observe and joyfully keep, either as individually, or in joint fellowship of the Church of the Living GOD. Week after week. Year after year. For all their lives, as they draw breath. THE SUBJECTS – ALL THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH ARE JUST AS WEAK AND UNFULFILLED. MADE TO PURSUE GOALS AND RUN AFTER EMPTY DREAMS. ALL VANITY, AND RUNNING AFTER WIND. So as they remember to observe and keep the Sabbaths, WEEKLY, AND TRI-ANNUALLY, of God, these became emblazoned in the believer and practitioner’s heart and mind, and whole being. A fulfillment of God’s promise of a new covenant with the spiritual commonwealth of spirit-begotten Israel (composed of both spiritbegotten Jews and Gentiles) that He will write His Law of Love written in their hearts in the end of days, (Book of the prophet Jeremiah 31:33; Epistle to the Hebrews 8:10).

44

> THESE ANNUAL SABBATHS AND WEEKLY SABBATHS ARE FEAST DAYS OF THE LORD ORDAINED FROM CREATION WHEN THE ETERNAL GOD PLACED THE SUN AND MOON IN THEIR FIXED ORBITS AS DIVINE MARKERS OF TIME AND CYCLICAL SEASONS OF THE DIVINE FESTIVALS OF THE LORD GOD FOR MANKIND, (Book of Genesis 1:14). 14 “And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the

heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons*, and for days, and years.”
*seasons – Strong’s # 4150 Heb. >> mowadah >> an appointed time, feast (appointed), (place of)) solemn assembly, festival, congregation, meeting convened for a definite purpose.

The LORD God revealed to the people of Israel, whom He took out of Egypt from their slavery for 450 years, thru His human instrument Moses, what those FEAST DAYS OF GOD ARE in the Book of Leviticus chapter 23. The Lord Jesus Christ came from heaven and made manifest in to a human being, flesh and blood, born of a woman, the virgin Mary. He kept those Feast Days, together with his twelve disciples, whom He later turned into his twelve apostles. He came to set the example to them. To the end that His believers, followers and practitioners of the Faith He once delivered to them, may FOLLOW IN HIS STEPS, (Gospel Book of John 13:15; First Epistle of Peter 2:21). Outwardly and inwardly, the SIGN BETWEEN GOD AND HIS PEOPLE becomes permanently established, and ratified, so to 45

speak. IT SINKS INTO THE INNERMOST BEING. INDELIBLE. ENGRAVED. It becomes part of their nature, not second nature. Keeping and observing His perfect spiritual laws of love and commandments which are holy and good becomes automatic, and all done in perfect, joyful attitude, obedience, and enthusiasm. SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. > This sign that they are God’s called out, and Christ’s chosen people, is one of most solemn and sacred calling and responsibility. It does not make of them spiritually high and mighty. Neither more holy than their neighbor, or any one. Rather, they are sanctified. Meaning >> set apart to fulfill God’s holy purpose for them. It does confers upon them the responsibility to live exemplary lives as they follow the example of the Lord Jesus Christ, and from that mirror, they shine. >.To become the light of the world. And be the salt of the earth. > They are servants and spirit-begotten children of God, and servants to mankind, for their fellowmen’s welfare and good being. Not to get. Only in a spirit of giving. > Thus, whenever they observe and keep the Holy Seventh-day Sabbath, and the Holy Annual Sabbaths, three times a year, they hold forth the Divine Sign of their sanctification. The rest of mankind may refuse to do so, and observe and keep their own sabbaths, and their own feast days, apart from what the Holy 46

Scriptures reveal, (Book of the prophet Isaiah 1:13-`14). The world calls them holidays, and festival, or feast, of this and that saint, or saints.

> THESE WEEKLY AND ANNUAL SABBATHS REVEAL THE FRAMEWORK OF GOD’S MASTERPLAN OF CREATION OF THE IMMORTAL SONS OF GOD. > THIS IS OUTLINED IN THE TWELVE PHASES OF THE SPIRITUAL PROCESS OF SALVATION. (Refer to the Divine Charter of Immortality). > GOD HAS DESIGNED THESE TWELVE PHASES, WHICH CULMINATES IN BEING BORN AGAIN, BORN OF THE SPIRIT, INTO THE FAMILY, AND KINGDOM, OF GOD. > THE FINAL POINT IS THE MOMENT OF SALVATION – OF BEING TRANSFORMED FROM MORTAL TO IMMORTAL SON, AND CHILD OF GOD. THAT IS THE VERY ACTUAL MOMENT OF SALVATION, BORN OF FAITH AND THE GRACE OF GOD >>>>o<<<< AND THE RECEIVING OF THE GIFT OF EVERLASTING LIFE, (Epistle to the Ephesians 2:8). > THIS IS FOLLOWED BY THE RECEIVING OF THE REWARD AND A CROWN OF LIFE BORNE OF ALL THE GOOD WORKS AND DEEDS DONE IN THE SERVICE AND LOVE OF GOD BY GOOD WORKS, (Epistle to the Ephesians 2:10).

47

> THE REST OF THE WORLD OF RELIGION, OR IN ALL CHRISTIANITY OF TWO BILLION BELIEVERS DENY THESE HOLY DAYS AND THE TRI-ANNUAL SABBATHS. HENCE, SALVATION TO THEM IS GOING TO HEAVEN BY THEIR “IMMORTAL” SOUL. QUESTION NOT BEING ASKED: IF THE SOUL IS IMMORTAL ALREADY, INSIDE OF THE MAN OR WOMAN WHO DIED, WHAT IS THERE THE NEED TO BE SAVED INTO IMMORTALITY IN HEAVEN? QUITE IMPOSSIBLE TO EXPLAIN. IT IS THE PERFECT CONTRADICTION THEY CALL A “MYSTERY”. TO THE HIGHEST RELIGIOUS HIERARCHY, IF IT IS A MYSTERY, IT CAN NOT BE EXPLAINED.. “IT MUST NOT BE EXPLAINED. BECAUSE IT CAN NOT BE EXPLAINED.” IS THE SIMPLISTIC ANSWER GIVEN TO THE SEEKERS OF TRUE ANSWERS. > They constitute the spiritual team of laborers in GOD’S VINEYARD, of which the FATHER IS THE HUSBANDMAN and CHRIST IS THE VINE, (Gospel Book of John 15:1). They work for the same end-time reward, (Gospel Book of Matthew 20:1, 2, 8), when the Lord Jesus Christ returns and carries His reward with Him, (Book of the prophet Isaiah 40:10-11; 62:11-12). THEY ALSO ARE THE BRANCHES OF THE VERY VINE, JESUS THE CHRIST OF GOD, (Gospel Book of John 15:1, 5). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVES. 48

> They KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS (The Ten Commandments of God, {Books of Exodus 20:1-26; Deuteronomy 4:13; 10:4}, AND BEAR THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST, (Book of Revelation 12:17>>>>Book of the prophet Isaiah 8:16, 20). Gen 3:15; ch 11:7 {NOTE; MANKIND, FROM ADAM AND EVE, THE FIRST CREATED HUMAN FAMILY, AND THEIR OFFSPRINGS AND ALL THROUGHOUT THEIR GENERATIONS, TILL TODAY, WERE IN REBELLION AGAINST THEIR ETERNAL CREATOR GOD, AND HIS HOLY COMMANDMENTS. REBELLION IS PRONOUNCED AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT, ALONG WITH THE INIQUITY OF STUBBORNESS AND IDOLATRY, (First Book of the prophet Samuel 15:23). Consequently, all have sinned, (Epistle to the Romans 3:23; 5:12). The penalty of death hangs over every unrepented sinner, (Romans 18:23). GOD IS LOVE, (First Epistle of John 4:8, 16). THEREBY, THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD ARE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF LOVE. THE COMMANDMENTS ARE HOLY, JUST, AND GOOD, (Epistle to the Roams 7:12). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHIURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. BELIEVE. > They manifest the FOREMOST IRREFUTABLE PROOF, THE TOPMOST EVIDENCE, THE VERY FRUIT, that they are the called-out, chosen, and elected disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, because they truly, and deeply, and sincerely, without dissimulation and hypocrisy, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, and so manifesting, the 49

world of man shall, indeed, know, (Gospel Book of John 13:35). THIS IS THE VERY ESSENCE OF THEIR RELIGION AND LIVING FAITH. THEREFORE ALL WHO SAY THAT THE LAW OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IS LEGALISM, A BURDEN, A BALL OF CHAIN, ARE LIARS. THE HOLY SCRIPTURES PRONOUNCE: THE TRUTH IS NOT IN THEM, (Book of the prophet Isaiah 8:16. 20). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE. > The Church has a specific purpose in being built by Jesus Christ. What is it? Is it a distinct spiritual purpose, using physical tools, in and by the hands of flesh and blood mortals, born of women, as well as spiritual tools, to proceed to do, perform, and complete the job, to ultimately accomplish the spiritual purpose?

THE SPIRITUAL PERFECTION OF MAN
The total completion and spiritual perfection of man, to the measure of the fullness of Christ, is made possible ONLY in the Church of the Living God, for it is the PILLAR of the ONLY TRUTH, (Epistle to the Ephesians 4:13). IN ANY OTHER PLACE, IT IS THE MIXTURE OF TRUTH AND ERROR, OF THE BLENDING OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL THAT WAS RECEIVED AND INGESTED IN THE 50

REBELLION OF ADAM AND EVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN. THIS, THEY PASSED ON TO THE HUMAN RACE, TILL TODAY. THE HUMAN FAMILY THROUGHOUT THE AGES OF MAN’S GENERATIONS WERE INCUBATED, AS IT WERE, IN THE WOMB OF DUAL VALUES: KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. TRUTH AND ERROR. GOODNESS AND WICKEDNESS. TRUTH AND LIE. LIGHT AND DARKNESS. THEY WERE, AS IT WERE, HATCHED AND CAME OUT INTO THE WORLD OF THE LIVING WITH THIS BUILTIN IN THEIR PSYCHE.

THE HUMAN DILEMMA
CHRIST’S APOSTLE TO THE GENTILES, PAUL, SPOKE OF IT WITH GRAVE ANGST, AND A SENSE OF HELPLESSNESS:

“O wretched man that I am. Who will deliver me from the body of this death?”, (read all of >>>> Epistle to the Romans 47:14-24).
SO IT IS WRITTEN. SO THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. > It is the ONLY FOUNTAIN OF PERFECT KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, and WISDOM that is not stained, neither defiled, nor polluted by the knowledge and practice of both good, and evil. THIS IS THE ONLY ISSUE THAT REALLY MATTERS. SO IT IS WRITTEN, THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. BELIEVE. 51

> The perfect parallel of the Body called the Church of God is the human body. Of the body, the Psalmist David exclaimed: “FOR I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE!” The human body is alive and animated. So is the Church. BOTH PERFECTLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE BY THE SAME CREATOR AND BUILDER, (Book of Psalms 100:3; 139:14; Gospel Book of Matthew 16:18). > The members thereof were pre-destinated to be called. So were the members of the human body foreordained to be so, before they were ever made, and came to be, (Book of Psalms 139:16-17; Epistle to the Ephesians 1:4). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. BELI EVE. > The members of the Family of God on earth, the household of God, must dwell together in harmony, and unity, (Book of Psalms 133:1; Epistle to the Ephesiansn4:3, 13). If they must walk together, they must have mutual agreement, (Book of the prophet Amos 3:3).

> The Church of God is ONE BODY with many members, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 12:13). > The Church of God, of Christ, has ONE God, and FATHER of all, (Epistle to the Ephesians 4:4. 5, 6). > One Faith. One Hope. One Baptism, (Eph 4:5). 52

> One Lord and Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ (First Epistle to the Corinthians 8:6). > One Spirit, the Holy Spirit of Power, (Epistles to the Ephesians 2:18; to the Philippians 1:7).

> ONE BODY OF BELIEFS AND DOCTRINES. Speaking one word, THE WORD OF GOD. > ONE CHURCH NAME:: CHURCH OF GOD, OF CHRIST. > ONE COMMISSION: TO PROCLAIM >>>> TO PREACH BY THE SPOKEN WORD, AND TO PUBLISH, BY THE PRINTED WORD, THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD. > ONE GOVERNMENT OF GOD The governments of men govern as overlords over the citizens. The system is a hierarchy of ranks. A pyramid. From the top >>>> down. Both in their armies. Of unbending, stern authority, strict discipline, and strong command. Of harsh punishment. In their business organizations. And in their churches. IT IS ALL ABOUT POWER. To control others. And the power to control, and allocate and disburse the financial resources, or money, and assets, of the organization. Whether it be of civil government, or business, or religious. In the Church of God, the greatest among them is the servant of all,

53

25 “But Jesus called them unto him, and said, ‘Ye know that the

princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority over them. 26 But it shall not be so among you but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; 1 Pet. 5:3 27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant,
(Gospel Books of Matthew 20:25-27; 23:11; Mark 10:43-44 ). It is a government of caring and giving for the welfare of the members of the household of God. The ultimate standard and the bar is SPIRITUAL LOVE. Love one to another. Members to one another. Of loving-kindness. Humility, Of symbolically “seventy times seven.” forgiving one another,

AUTHORITY FROM CHRIST GIVEN FOR LEADERS SHIP AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE CHURCH OF GOD TO FEED THE FLOCK AND PROCLAMATION OF ITS SOLE MISSION
“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven,”
(Gospel Book of Matthew 16:18). > ONE GOSPEL >>>> THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, Gospel means ‘good news,” (Gospel Books of Matthew 24:14; Mark 13:10).

54

> ONE SALVATION, THAT COMES BY BEING BORN AGAIN INTO THE FAMILY, AND KINGDOM, OF GOD, (Gospel Book of John chapter 3, by being born again into the Family, and Kingdom, of God, an immortal, spirit-born child of God). > THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH OF GOD IS THE SPIRITUAL MIRROR OF THE “CHURCH OF GOD IN THE WILDERNESS”, (Book of Acts 7:37, 38). The Old Testament “ekklesia” consisting of the people and nation of Israel, was called out of, and from, Egypt, where they were slaves for more than four hundred eighty years. (Book of First Kings 16:1), “Egypt” is the symbol of the prison house of sin, or sin itself. The New Testament Church of God are called out of the bondage to sin, their spiritual “Egypt”. > IT IS THE CHURCH OF THE FIRST BORN. (Epistle to the Hebrews 12:23). > Together with the Name, CHURCH OF GOD, OF CHRIST, the Church of God live a WAY OF LIFE. In the very early days, they are known as the followers of the Crucified and Resurrected Christ who lived, and walked with God, in THE WAY, (Book of Acts 19:9, 23). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE. > THEY WERE CALLED CHRISTIANS… 26 “And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves 55

with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch,” (Book of Acts 11:26). THE FIRST CENTURY DISCIPLES WERE KNOWN AS CHRISTIANS, EVEN BY KINGS

27 “King Agrippa, believes thou the prophets? I know that thou believest. 28 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, ‘Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian,” (Book of Acts 26:27-28).
THE APOSTLE PETER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT NAME FOR THE TRUE DISCIPLES OF CHRIST

16 “Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; let him glorify God on his behalf,” (First Epistle of Peter 4:16).
> LIVING FAITH AND SPIRIT-LED GOOD WORKS become the twin enabling spiritual power with, and by, which the steadfast believer and active doer may attain and receive the spiritual power to grow, comprehend, and to come to attain to the spiritual dimensions of length, of depth, of height, and of width, (ref. ch. 1:18), together with the saints; and finally, to know and experience the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you, the believer and practitioner, may be filled with all the fullness of God, (Epistle to the Ephesians 3:18-19), unto a perfect man, to attain to the measure of the stature, of the fullness of Christ, (Eph. 4:13). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE.

MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT THE CHURCH

56

You hear believers say: “They go to church.” Or, “They went to

church”.
And so it is generally, and traditionally, believed that they enter their building of worship as the church. As proclaimed on the outside of the building, the name of their church is drawn, either with sculpted letters in metal, bronze or wood, or etched, engraved, or painted. Hence, their place of worship is taken for granted as “the church.” The right and correct way is to say: “They went to worship services.” (Of the Church). It really matters to be right about this issue. When did those errant practices and traditions begin? It is quite foggy when men try to look back to find out thru the dim mists of yore and ancient time. What is practiced today are modern innovations and added accepted ways that seemed pleasant, in the process of time. To many others, over time, their particular church became as to an exclusive club. An exclusive social gathering. And so, it came to be. And in these practices, they became smug. And slowly adopted worldly practices. A religious leader in the large bloc of protestant believers observed sadly: “WE HAVE NOT OVERCOME THE WORLD. WE WERE OVERCOME BY THE WORLD.”

THE WAY TO WORSHIP ACCEPTABLE TO GOD
57

The New Testament Church of God worshipped in the FORMAT of Fellowship and Worship Services in the Congregation attended by:

> Saluting, or greeting, one another with a holy kiss, (Epistles to the Romans 16:16; First Corinthians 16:20; Second Corinthians 13:12; First Thessalonians 5:26; Kiss of charity: First Peter 5:14). > Fervent Prayers. with all supplications, (First Epistle to Timothy 2:1; 5:5; Epistle to the Hebrews 5:7). They PRAY, AND LIFT UP THEIR HOLY HANDS WITHOUT DOUBTING, (First Epistle to Timothy 2:8). Luke 23:34; Ps 134:2 > Singing of soulful Psalms, vibrant Spiritual Songs of Praise, and stirring, uplifting, ennobling Hymns, (Epistles to the Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). > With the skillful Playing and Use of Musical Instruments, (see their names: Book of Psalms 149:3; 150:3, 4, 5). > Interactive Communications of revelations, in an orderly and decent manner, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 14:26). > Consistent, continual PRAYERFUL Reading, and diligent Spiritguided Study, of the Holy Scriptures. Like the Bereans did, who studied, and searched the Scriptures daily, if these things were so, (Book of Acts 17:11). > And sincere Preaching by serving trained teachers (not novices, neither neophytes), and service-oriented, able ministers who are grounded in the Faith and in the Holy Scriptures. They who labor in deep love for the everlasting Gospel, and the holy brethren.
58

ALL THESE are conducted for the edification of the Body, the Church of God, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 14:40). (Note: Clap your hands, Shout unto God with the voice of triumph, (Book of Psalms 47:1); Dance is mentioned in the Book of Psalms 149:3). THE CONGREGATION OF THE CHURCH, OR CHURCHES, OF GOD ARE ENJOINED TO ASSEMBLE IN WORSHIP SERVICES AND FELLOWSHIP.

23 “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) ch. 4:14; 1 Cor 1:9 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works; 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching,” (Epistle to the Hebrews 10:23-25).
IT STARTED FROM THE EARLIEST DAYS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST:

50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. Acts 1:12 51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. Mark 16:19 52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. Mat 28:9 53 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.,” (Gospel Book of Luke 24:50-53) Acts 2:48
59

THERE IS NEVER ANY VESTIGE OF FAMILIARITY. ALWAYS OBERVED WITH JOY AND FERVENT ZEAL. SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, THE CHURCHES OF CHRIST, SO BELIEVE. WARNING AND REMINDER: If NOT faithfully practiced and carefully observed as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, the Head of the Church declares:

‘IN VAIN THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN,” Thus, says
the Lord Jesus Christ, (Gospel Books of Matthew 15:7-9; Mark 7:79). For this forthright declaration and pronouncements by the Master Builder of the Church of God, of Christ, He was hated and vilified by the religious leaders in His days in the flesh among men He created, (Gospel Book of John 1:1). WITH THE HOLY SCRIPTURES AS THE SOLE AND ONLY GUIDE that we may truly know the real truth, this Sacred Golden Scroll Series draws the whole, unvarnished, Truth from the Holy Scriptures, both the Old, and New, Testament. This is in full reverent obedience, and honor, to GOD.

If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given to you ward: 3 How that by revelation He made known unto me the mystery;…4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ. 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto His holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of the

61

promise in Christ by the gospel. 9 And to make known what is the FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY, which is from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: 10 To the intent that now unto the principalities, and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,” (Epistle to the Ephesians 3:3-10).

WHY ARE THERE MANY DIFFERENT CHURCHES ON EARTH TODAY?
As many as the churches are, so is the story why and how they started, many, and long. It is in the nature of things that human beings are divided into types and kinds. The following FOLLOWERS. kind. THE FOLLOWER. THE

And the leading kind. THE LEADER, “THE ONE”, as he is often tagged in media and religious literature. So long as there are followers who would rather follow someone, just to sit back, and relax, there will always be a leader, or leaders. Leaders who are supposed to lead by work, and example. Not merely to have and to use the power of authority and command. And end up using selected scriptures to collect money from the followers and supporters. The principle is true in the story of the Church. And over time in the churches.

62

IT HAS COME DOWN TO THESE
The words and texts of the Holy Scriptures, or the Holy Bible, are claimed to be the unexpurgated source of the articles of faith and practice of their particular church. A catch phrase here. A compound of words there. A single word in that. Then a church is born. Just like that! It becomes silly, indeed. For from then on, these latch on to their particular word phrase as their banner slogan. IT IS MAKING THE HOLY CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD CHEAP, AND DRAGGED DOWN TO INSIGNIFICANT, COLLOQUIAL LEVELS. EVEN IRRELEVANT. DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY ANY OF THESE. THESE NEVER-DO-WELLS BLASPHEME GOD’S VERY NAME AND DIVINE MAJESTY. HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THESE.

Chapter Two

NEVER AN IDLE WORD
36 But I say unto you, “That every idle word that men shall speak,

they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” (Gospel Book of Matthew 12:36-37).
“Sanctify them thru thy truth: thy word is truth,” (Gospel Book of John 17:17). > It is important now to realize that all religious doctrinal falsehoods, masquerading as Truth, but are lies, are idle words. Every religious leader who proclaims false gospels, which are idle words, will be held accountable before God in the Day of Judgment. They are indicted by these very declaration of the Creator of the human race, The Captain of salvation, the Author and Finisher of the Faith, (Epistle to the Hebrews 2:10; 12:2; Gospel Book of John 1:1-2). > “Whatever is not of faith is sin,” (Epistle to the Romans 14:23). Whatever it is that is not according to the Faith once delivered to the saints, are practices of sin! This condemns false religious faiths and man-invented lawless and faithless religious practices and traditions. 64

THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT THEY WERE DOING
Then said Jesus, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do,” (Gospel Book of Luke 23:34).
He came to die for the redemption of mankind. To heal the human race. Afflicted by all manner of physical diseases and its complications, and every type and kind of psycho-somatic disorders. In their inner man, in their mind, heart, and spirits: Every, and all, manner, of spiritual afflictions. including demon possessions, and serious demon influences. The latter not being recognized by human physicians and learned doctors. > Why did mankind need to be redeemed? The answer lies before that time of the need for humanity to be redeemed. > When GOD created the perfect and beautiful earth, it was not meant to be ruined. It was created to be inhabited. That original Earth was to be the dwelling place of mortal inhabitants who will live, and later die, and later live by a resurrection from the grave, to live forever in immortality. 1 “IN THE BEGINNING, GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH, (Book of Genesis 1:1).

65

Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?...
Ps 104:5; Prov 8:29 5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? Or who

hath stretched the line upon it? 6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? Or who laid the corner stone thereof? 7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy,” (Book of Job 38:4-7).

BEAUTIFUL PERFECT EARTH MADE TO BE INHABITED
18 “For thus saith the LORD God that created the heavens:

God himself that formed the earth and made it: he hath himself established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD, and there is none else,” (Book of
the prophet Isaiah 45:18). verse 5 5 “Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens and he avens

stretched them out: he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein,” (ch. 42:5).

CONSEQUENCES OF SIN, BORNE OF IDLE WORDS, IN THE HERE AND NOW
All of the family of man burdened by the duality of their nature, passed on to them from their first progenitor: the knowledge of good and evil. Truth and error. Every time evil prevails in their actions, they sin. 66

Every time their thoughts in error cause them to commit deeds of disobedience, they sin. Every time they sin, death comes hanging heavier over them.

“Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers hath transgressed against me,” (Book of the prophet Isaiah 43:27).
ADAM, THE FIRST CREATED MORTAL, FLESH AND BLOOD, AND PHYSICAL FATHER AND PROGENITOR, OF ALL LIVING, SINNED AGAINST THE ETERNAL CREATOR GOD. IN THE BEGINNING, IN ONE MOMENT IN TIME AFTER HE WAS CREATED. THE HOLY SCRIPTURES REMAIN SILENT AS TO WHETHER HE REPENTED, OR NOT. ALL THE TEACHERS OF MEN THAT AROSE THROUGHOUT ALL THE GENERATIONS OF MANKIND TILL TODAY HAVE TRANSGRESSED AGAINST GOD. WITHOUT EXCEPTION. THEY HAVE ALL TAUGHT BOTH IDLE WORDS OF ERROR, UNWITTINGLY, OR WITTINGLY, MIXED WITH FACTS AND TRUTH, TO THEIR EAGER STUDENTS, (Epistle to the Romans 5:14). WERE THEY SINCERE? YES, BUT SINCERELY DECEIVED. YET, IN THE LAW IT IS WRITTEN, “IGNORANCE OF THE LAW EXEMPTS NO ONE FROM COMPLIANCE THEREWITH.” AND THIS TRUE. 67

(Books of Leviticus 4;2; 5:15; 4:13; Book of Acts 3:17, 19; 17:30). He came to redeem the created mortals, born of women, flesh and blood from that condemnation. Every one of them condemned under the penalty of death, (Epistle to the Galatians 3:22). > ONLY THE ACCEPTABLE REDEEMER AND HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD SACRIFICE CAN DO THAT FOR ALL OF THEM THAT WERE EVER BORN, AND ALL THAT EVER DIED, ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. IT IS THE ONLY ONE TIME SACRIFICE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD, (Epistle to the Hebrews 10:12, 14; 11:4). ONLY THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THE LAMB, WHO WAS GOD, AND BECAME A MAN, CAN BE ACCEPTABLE TO GOD, (Gospel Book of John 1:1). “And without controversy great

is the mystery of Godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory,” (First Epistle to Timothy
3:16). THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THE PASSOVER LAMB IS SACRIFICED FOR THE DISCIPLES OF CHRIST, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 5:7). “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, (Epistle to the Romans 3:23; 5:12). The wages of sin is death,” (Epistle to the Romans 6:23).

THE ROOT OF SIN
68

WHAT IS THE ROOT OF SIN? HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN? WHEN THE FIRST COUPLE PARTOOK OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. THEN THE KNOWLEDGE OF EVIL TOOK ON A HEAVIER WEIGHT IN THE PROCESS OF TIME. KNOWLEDGE OF EVIL MADE AND INDUCED MEN TO COMMIT SIN. SIN UPON LAYER AND LAYERS OF SIN WAS THE NET RESULT.

“SIN IS THE TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW,”(First
Epistle John 3:4). SIN IS THE BREAKING OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, THE CODIFIED ARTICLES OF THE LAW. THE LAW OF LOVE. GOD IS LOVE. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS COMMANDMENT OF LOVE. ARE THE TEN

WHEN EVER ANY MAN OR WOMAN BREAKS THAT COMMANDMENT OF LOVE, THE RESULT IS SIN. 69

SIN IS DESERVING OF THE PENALTY OF DEATH. DEATH IN THIS PHYSICAL LIFE IS EITHER DIRECT DEATH THAT COMES UPON THE SINNER, BY HIS BREAKING THE LAW OF LOVE. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD. THE AUTOMATIC PENALTIES FOR TRANSGRESSIONS OF THE LAW OF LOVE BRING PHYSICAL DEATH. LIFE BECOMES SHORTER. STRESSES AND PSYCHOSOMATIC PROBLEMS THAT ACCRUE BRINGS ILL HEALTH. THE PERSON DIES, NOT IN PEACE, BUT UNDER DURESS, ANGST, PAIN, DISTRESS. DISEASES COME OUT TO AFFLICT THE BODY. DEATH FOLLOWS. UNREPENTED SIN ULTIMATELY BRINGS SPIRITUAL DEATH. WHEN REPENTED OF, SINCERELY, WITH SINCERE GRIEF, GOD FORGIVES. FORGIVENESS OF SIN HEALS THE BODY, AS WELL.

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

Chapter Three

THE MYSTERY OF THE CHURCH BUILT UPON THE ROCK
In the fifth chapter of the Gospel Book of Mathew, the Lord Jesus Christ went up into a mountain, whereon His disciples came unto Him. There He taught them, and opened the profoundest truth of the Christian calling for their deep understanding:

“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.” (Gospel Books of
7:246:47Matthew 7:24-25; Luke 6:47-48).

THE FOUNDATION OF THE CHURCH OF GOD
71

JESUS, THE CHRIST OF GOD, BUILT THE CHURCH OF GOD UPON HIMSELF, THE ROCK. In His prayer to God His Father, before His moment of supreme sacrifice and death, in the hands of men He created, by Roman crucifixion, He enjoined the Father to KEEP IN GOD’S NAME those the Father has given to Him. Hence, the Churches of Christ are kept in the Name of God: CHURCH OF GOD, (Gospel Book of John 17:11; Epistle to the Ephesians 3:15). The Church of God is the Household and Family of God on earth, (Epistle to the Ephesians 2:19; 3:15). Gal 6:10 In twelve places in the Holy Scriptures, (ten in God’s, and two in Christ’s), the Name is revealed: > “Feed the church of God, (Book of Acts 20:28). > “To the church of God which is at Corinth, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 1:2). > “Give none offence,,,, to the church of God,” (ch 10:32). > “Or despise ye the church of God,” (ch 11:22) > “I persecuted the church of God,” (ch 15:9). > “We have no custom, neither the churches of God,” (ch 11:16). >“Care of the church of God,” (First Epistle to Timothy 3:5; > “church of the living God,” (Ch. 3:15). 72

> “Called churches of Christ, “ (Epistle to the Romans 16:16). > “I persecuted the church of God; (Epistle to the Galatians 1:13). >“As I ordain in all churches of Christ,” (First Epistle to the Corinthians 11:16). > “Followers of the churches of God,” (First Epistle to the Thessalonians 2:14). He is THE SPIRITUAL ROCK upon which His Church was founded, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 10:4). Ex 17:6, Num 20:11, Ps 78:15 SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, THE CHURCHES OF CHRIST, SO BELIEVE.

A FUNDAMENTAL BUILDING PRINCIPLE TO FOLLOW
MOREOVER, CHRIST DISCLOSED THE KEY PRINCIPLE THAT EVERY BELIEVER AND PRACTITIONER MUST FOLLOW IN BUILDING: IN ESTABLISHING HIS OWN BLUEPRINT FOR HIS PERSONAL LIFE-BUILDING. THE OTHER IN BUILDING HIS OWN HOUSE. IF HE BE A SERVING SERVANT OF CHRIST IN A CHURCH, HOW TO BUILD THAT BRANCH OF THE SPIRITUAL BODY UNDER HIS CARE..

73

IF THE BUILDER DOES, ALL ELSE WILL FOLLOW IN SMOOTH FLOW. LIKE CLOCKWORK REGULARITY. GOD AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, THRU THE POWER AND GUIDANCE BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, WILL SEE TO THAT.

CHAOS AND FAILURE FOLLOWS DEVIATION AND DISOBEDIENCE
It is really quite simple. The law of cause and effect in operation in the created universe, and reduced from the biggest, largest size, thru, and to, descent to the lowest quantity. Even to the multi-cellular, sub-atomic level. And from the utmost volume and mass to the smallest equation. The Law of Cause and Effect follows, and is applicable, in all these. Primary example: Gravity pulls all men down, so men are all earthbound, Gravity is the cause. The going down is the effect. It is inevitable. Inviolate. A fixed principle in the created universe. Set in motion by the Eternal Creator GOD. We see this on terra firma, the earth that all men, born of women, flesh and blood mortals, dwell in. It is quite important to understand.

THE HIGHEST VALUE TO REACH AFTER
Life is not all technical equations, numbers. And now, in the 21st century, digits. Not in-depth analysis. Uninvolved evaluation and 74

factual research with charts and figures galore. Not endless information gathering and ultimately, information overload! Modern 21st century man has fallen into the trap. Competition. Survival. “Must win at all costs” motto and mantra. The rat race. Stress. Anxiety. Withdrawal into self-protection, and loss of trust of others is the result. Crafting of firewalls from intrusion in to his private world and personal universe, his well-guarded space. VERBOTEN TO OTHERS. Forbidden. Intrude NOT. Such tragedy. The SYSTEM has done in the human person, flesh and blood, born of woman. Coldness. Hardness. ‘Who cares?’ Unfeeling. Dispassionate. Uninvolvement. Men turned to all these to mask himself. For selfprotection. Self-preservation in an evil and cruel, merciless environment: the world, as it has now become. THIS IS IN THE EXTREME. IT IS GOING TO GET WORSE AND WORST IN THE END OF DAYS.

ALL THESE >>> MEN OUGHT TO BE
Feeling and emotions attend the entire range of the business, and conduct, or vice-versa, of life. Passion and intensity must attend activities that men do. Capacity to care. Willingness to show and share affection. Compassion is primary in communion with suffering mankind. With one’s neighbor. Willingness to reach out and touch the lives of others, and 75

to be mutually touched, as well. It is never really a one way street, but two, and mutual. And so it never dries and never dies. LOVE, above all. In the Greek, not just Eros, Neither philia.

The former and the latter, both being physical and material, will pass away into the night, so to speak. As the saying goes, fade into the sunset, And perish from the thoughts and memory of men. The fire and the passion will die down. Much, ought and must be, in overflowing agape, spiritual love, which never dies. It is everlasting, above all else. Agape that will endure for all eternity.
Love that is shared and given. The more you give it away, the more you have it. Such a beautiful paradox. Meant to be known. Meant to be experienced by every one. Erstwhile they are insensate. Devoid of true feeling. Bereft of true humanity. Robbed off of mercy, kindness, goodness, beauty, and truth. All facts and knowledge, particularly head knowledge, are granted to be true. Yet IF devoid of the beating, stirring, pulsating heart, No passion and feeling, Turned inert. It is “not a life worth living,” to paraphrase an ancient philosopher. Robots, albeit functioning machines, equipped with mechanical memory, software and electronics, and can move as if it were human, emit computerized sounds and light, are nothing but inorganic, metallic, feelingless fabrications. Yet made with accurate dimensions and proportions, and high-sensitivity sensors, are just that: robots. They are man-made machines. 76

Man must never turn to be like his fabricated robots. That would be an awful tragedy. The ultimate tragedy, in fact. “HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THEM…” Members of the Church of God, the spiritual Body of Jesus Christ ought to live by THE REDEEMING WONDERFUL POWER OF LOVE, quickened by the Holy Spirit, the power of the Highest. This is totally warm and spontaneous. Given, shown, and shared with utmost, profound feeling and complete sincerity with one’s fellowman. THEY BECOME THE FOREMOST EXAMPLE OF SPIRITUAL HUMANITY. Warm. Compassionate. Courageous. Bold. Kind. Gentle. Tender. Generous. THAT IS THE TRUE SPIRITUAL BEAUTY, TO THE ATTAINMENT OF WHICH, AND TO WHICH, A TRUE BELIEVER AND PRACTITIONER OF THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED, MAY ASPIRE.

TO THE CHAPTER OF LOVE
THE FIRST EPISTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS, ALL OF CHAPTER THIRTEEN SAYS IT PEREFECTLY WELL: READ IT. AND TAKE IT TO HEART WITH MUCH PRAYER AND SUPPLICATIONS. FOR DEEP UNDERSTANDING. AND ULTIMATELY, ZEALOUS APPLICATION.

First Corinthians 13 Chapter of Charity (LOVE)
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
77
1

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 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. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 5 4 3

2

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 8

7

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
11

10

78

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
13

12

COMPASSION WITH, AND IN, HEALING WAS THEHALLMARK OF CHRIST’S MINISTRY
The Eternal Creator GOD dealt with His created mortals with loving kindness:

35 “And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer. 36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. 37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they steadfast in his covenant. 38 But he being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
Num 14:18, 20 39 For he remembered they are but flesh, a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again,” (Book of Psalms 78:36-39). 15 But thou, O LORD, art a God full of compassion, and

gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth,”
(Book of Psalms 86:15). 4 “He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered; and the LORD is gracious and full of compassion,” (Book of Psalms 111:4; 112:4; 145:8). 79

The Lord Jesus Christ showed the way in his recorded dealings with mankind. 36

“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd,” (Gospel Book of
Matthew 9:36). 34 “So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes,

and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him,” (Gospel Book of Matthew 20:34).
39 And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee,

and cast out devils. 40 And there came out a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, And saying unto him, ‘If thou wilt, thou 41 And Jesus, moved with canst make me clean.’ compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him. ‘I will; be thou clean.’ 42 And soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. (Gospel Book of Mark
1:39-41). 12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold there

was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, ‘Weep not’. 14 And when he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, ‘Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.’
ch 8:54; John 11:43 80

15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he

delivered him to his mother. 16 And there rose a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, ‘That a great prophet is risen up among us; and that God hath visited his people,’ (Gospel Book of Luke 7:12-15).

THE DISCIPLES OF CHRIST ARE COMMISSIONED TO PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, AND HEAL THE SICK
1 ‘THEN HE called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. Mat 10:1; Mark 3:13; 6:7

2 And he sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick, (Gospel Book of Luke 9:1-2). Mat 10:7, 8
5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them saying, ‘Go

not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not.
ch 4:1, 5; 2 Ki 17:24; John 4:9

6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at Luke 9:2; ch 3:2; Luke 10:9 hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give,”
(Gospel Book of Matthew 10:1, 5-8).

81

IF YOU ARE SICK, CALL FOR THE ELDERS OF THE CHURCH PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN ANOINTING WITH OIL THE SICK

14 “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, 15 and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Is. 33:24 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, (Epistle of
James 5:14-16). HEALING OF SPIRITUAL AFFLICTIONS Emotional Depression. Terrible stress.
13 “Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms, (Epistle of James 5:13)
> GOD CREATED THE POWER OF HYMNS, PSALMS, AND SPIRITUAL SONGS TO HEAL WOUNDED HUMAN MINDS AND HEARTS. 82

> HE INSPIRED THRU THE HOLY SPIRIT THE WRITING OF THE PSALMS. THE WRITING BY MEN OF PURE HEARTS THE WRITING AND COMPOSITION OF SPIRITUAL SONGS AND HYMNS THROUGHOUT THE ROLLING CENTURIES, IN EVERY GENERATION OF BELIEVER AND PRACTITIONERS OF THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED. > THE GOD OF HEAVEN CREATES MOMENT BY MOMENT MIRACLES OF INSPIRATION AND UPLIFTMENT IN THE HEARTS AND BEING OF MEN AND WOMEN IN THE DEPTHS OF SORROW/ DESPAIR. HOPELESSNESS. PAIN. EMOTIONAL PAIN. MENTAL DEPRESSION. WHEN EVER THESE BEAUTIFUL HYMNS, PSALMS, SPIRITUAL SONGS ARE SUNG. WHENEVER THE WORDS ARE SUNG. WHENEVER THE MELODIES OF THE LYRICS TAKES WINGS. WHEN EVER THE SOUND OF MUSIC TAKES THESE THAT HEAR AND LISTEN TO THEM IN RAPT ATTENTION TO HEAVENLY HEIGHTS UNSEEN AND CELESTIAL DELIGHTS UNKNOWN. HEALING OF THE STRICKEN HUMAN HEART, MIND, AND BEING TAKES PLACE MIRACULOUSLY. JOY RETURNS TO THE HUMAN HEART, MIND, AND BEING. > FERVENT BELIEVING PRAYER MUST COME TOGETHER WITH THE SINGING OF THE HYMNS. PSALMS. AND SPIRITUAL SONGS. BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED. (Book of the prophet Isaiah 3:5; First Epistle of Peter 2:24).

83

INVOKE IN PRAYER FOR HEALING BY HIS SHED BLOOD OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF THE LAMB. HEALING IS FORGIVENESS OF SINS, (Epistle of James 5:15) WHENEVER CHRIST HEALED, HE SAID: “YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN.” (Gospel Books of Mark 2:5-11; Luke 5:2026). FAITH IN CHRIST BRINGS HEALING, (Gospel Book of Luke 7:1-10). COMPASSION OF CHRIST FOR A WIDOWED MOTHER WHOSE SON LAY DEAD BROUGHT THAT DEAD SON BACK TO LIFE, (Gospel Book of Luke 7:12-15).

HEALING IS A DOCTRINE OF GOD. HIS OFFICE IS AS THE HEALER. THE DIVINE PHYSICIAN. THE CHURCH OF GOD ADOPTED THIS DOCTRINE.

“I AM the LORD that HEALETH thee,” (Book of Exodus
15:26).

“Bless the LORD O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases,” (Book of Psalms 103:1-3). Ex. 15:26; Deut. 7:12-15;
Ps. 130:8; Is. 33:24; Jer. 50:20

84

ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH, IT SHALL BE DONE UNTO THEE
13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, ‘Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee.’ And his servant was healed in the self same hour,”(Matthew 8:13).
SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. GOD HEALS ABSOLUTELY.

RAISE THE DEAD. THE PHYSICALLY DEAD THE SPIRITUALLY DEAD
3 Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? 4 Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘Go and show John again

those things which you do hear and see:’ 5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have 11:3the gospel preached to them,’ (Gospel Books of Matthew 11:3-5;
29:18) Luke 7:22. Mat. 10:8; Is. 29:18)

THE MISSING ELEMENT IN THE RELIGION OF THE JEWS 23 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for

you pay tithe and mint and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and
85

faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone,” (Gospel Book of Matthew 23:23).
RELIGIOUS LEADERS, SUCH AS THOSE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES, AND THEIR MODERN COUNTERPARTS, ARE DEEP IN THE ENFORCING OF INFLEXIBLE RULES AND STERN REGULATIONS THAT STIFLE SPIRITUAL GROWTH. CHRIST REBUKES THEM FOR SUCH. ANY MAN, GROUP OF MEN, OR CHURCHES OF MEN WHO PROFESS GODLINESS, OR FAITH IN GOD, AND CHRIST, OR TO INVOKE THE NAME OF GOD, OUGHT TO REMEMBER THIS. ONLY THEN CAN THEY EVEN BEGIN TO SAY THAT THEY KNOW GOD AND GOD KNOWS THEM.

“BE YE HOLY FOR I AM HOLY” HOW?
Listen, mortals, and read what the Divine Creator proclaimed unto you:

44 “Ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 45 For I am the LORD that bringeth you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy,”(Book of Leviticus 11:44-45).
86

THIS IS THE LAW OF THE CLEAN AND THE UNCLEAN MEATS. THE FOOD LAW. THE SEPARATION AND DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE CLEAN AND THE UNCLEAN MEATS TO EAT, AND NOT TO EAT. IN MODERN LANGUAGE, IT IS CALLED “THE DIETARY LAW”. THEY ARE DESCRIBED IN FULL AND DETERMINATION IN THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS CHAPTER ELEVEN. THESE ARE NOT MERE LAWS FOR PHYSICAL GOOD HEALTH. AS GOD PROCLAIMED. ALTHOUGH THEY ALSO ARE. FOR ALL HUMANITY. FOR ALL MANKIND, BORN OF WOMEN, FLESH AND BLOOD, FOR ALL TIMES. VALID FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING FROM DAY ONE OF THE CREATION OF MAN, TO EVERY MAN AND WOMAN, TILL THE RETURN OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. AND ON IN THE MILLENNIUM. IN THE 100-YEAR OF JUDGMENT. HIS HOLINESS IS UPON YOU IF YOU DO NOT ALLOW YOUR NATURAL PHYSICAL BODY TO INGEST AND DIGEST, THEREBY INCORPORATE INTO YOUR BODY SYSTEM, WHICH IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, TO BE DEFILED WITH AND BY, WHAT THE ETERNAL CREATOR PRONOUNCES AS UNCLEAN. AND DECLARED BY THE DIVINE CREATOR AS ABOMINATION UNTO YOU. GOD MADE IT A POINT TO MAKE IT SO CLEAR, AND UNMISTAKEABLE. IT TAKES FAITH TO BELIEVE AND PRACTICE THIS FOOD LAW. WITHOUT FAITH, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD. THE VISION OF PETER AND WHAT IT REALLY MEANT 87

10 “And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance. 11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descended descended unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth. ch/7:56; Rev. 19:11

12 Wherein all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth,and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 13 And there came a voice to him, “Rise, Peter: kill, and eat.” 14 But Peter said, ‘Not so, Lord, for I have never eaten any thing

that is common, or unclean,”
15 And the voice spoke to him again the second time, ‘What God ver. 28 hath cleansed, that call not thou common.” 16 This was done thrice; and the vessel was received up again into heaven. 17 Now while Peter doubted in himself what the vision, which he had seen, should mean. The apostle Peter recounted the vision to the apostles that were in Jerusalem. IN CONCLUSION, they then realized that God had granted repentance unto life to the Gentiles also. That, henceforth, they were not to be called unclean, and common, (Book of Acts 10:1017; 18—47; 11:1-18). The apostle Peter, at that point in time, was long past the time when Christ was with them in His days in human flesh. This proves that they were taught that the Food Laws were always in effect. That the 88

first Christians knew and lived by the Food Law of Leviticus chapter eleven.

WHAT COLOSSIANS 3:16 REALLY MEANT

16 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days. 17 Which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ. Heb. 8:5
The Colossian Christians were new converts in the true faith once delivered to the saints. They were Gentiles in times past, (Epistle to the Ephesians 2:11). When they commenced in their practice of the Faith, and lived in the Way, as they were taught by the original apostles, their neighbors, who were practitioners of the heathen and pagan ways, and who ate anything they could lay their hands on without any distinction whatsoever, jeered at them. They laughed at them. They judged them. When they observed and kept the weekly holy Sabbath day, the seventh day, and the tri-annual Sabbath days, and the Holy Feast Days of God, their unconverted neighbors and the unbelievers around them, persecuted them, and judged them. The apostle Paul, Christ’s chosen apostle to the Gentiles, and then to the former Gentiles, now converted brethren in the Church of the Living God, wrote the above epistle to them, The brotherhood is their witness, and to each other, before God. Thereby, the world outside of the brotherhood can not therefore judge them, (Epistle to the Colossians 2:16, 17-23). 89

The doctrines of devils believed by the unbelievers forbids to marry, and commanded to abstain from meats, especially on their determined particular days, which God has created, and commanded to be received and eaten with thanks giving, of them WHICH BELIEVE AND KNOW THE TRUTH, SANCTIFIED BY THE WORD OF GOD, AND WITH PRAYER, (First Epistle to Timothy 4:1-5). The Book of Leviticus chapter eleven pronounced the type of clean meats to be eaten, and considered for FOOD. They were sanctified. Set apart. By these very word of God. ONLY THE BRETHREN BELIEVED AND KNEW THE TRUTH.

Chapter Four

WHAT TRUE RELIGION IS ALL ABOUT
26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, ‘To visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, and to keep himself 1:26unspotted from the world,” (Epistle of James 1:26-27). Ps.
34:13 The endless, useless wars and conflicts men engaged themselves in prematurely, and forcibly, removed fathers, brothers, sons, and other kindred men folks from the communities of man. Many other fatal causes inflicted on similar men folks left a terrible void. The world is so much poorer in the forced demise of male leaders, husbands, fathers, and providers for families. This left behind grieving widows. Helpless orphans. Multitude of fragile fatherless children in the world of the living. Deprived of the steady and strong guiding hand of fathers and breadwinners. 91

The yawning void in the lives of widows and fatherless children produces so much pain and sense of loss, as well as a sense of direction and purpose. A vast chasm of emptiness in the lives of them who were left behind. Of these that the ever Merciful and Loving God cares for, so that He set His Will for them in sacred Scriptures. The rudder by which these families are moving on in the world is missing. God their Father would will that void be filled by those who would profess to practice the religion God approves of, and consider to be true. THE GOD OF HEAVEN looks down from His Everlasting Throne of mercy and loving kindness, and sees all of these. He decrees that every one who confesses the true Faith once delivered must remember all these mortals bereft of husbands and fathers. To remember them with mercy and loving kindness as God does. To take time, and space, in their work-a-day lives and in their prayers and thoughts on behalf of them. Surely, if they do, they would be on God’s side. And God blesses them who choose to come on His side for these.

THE FOUNDATION OF THE DOCTRINES FOLLOWED AND KEPT BY THE CHURCH OF GOD
God is Love. God is Light. God is Full of Compassion. Mercy. Justice. Faith. Truth. Vision. Hope. Christ is The Life. Christ is The Truth. Christ is The Way. Christ is the Resurrection. ON NO OTHER FOUNDATION THAN FROM THESE MUST THE BELIEVER AND PRACTITIONER OF THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS BUILD HIS SPIRITUAL LIFE AND BEING

11 “For other foundations can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ,” 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire;
93

and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.” First Epistle to the Corinthians 3:11-13).
ALL DOCTRINES PROCEED FROM THESE. FROM THEM PROCEED THE DRINK OF LIVING WATERS FOR THOSE WHO THIRST. THE LIVING BREAD FOR THE HUNGRY IN THEIR HEART.

BODY OF BELIEFS AND DOCTRINES OF THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, PILLAR AND BULWARK OF THE TRUTH
“But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth,”
(First Epistle to Timothy 3:15).

ALL MANIFESTATIONS OF SPIRITUAL DOCTRINES EMANATE FROM WITHIN OF GOD’S CIRCUIT AND CIRCLE OF TRUE SPIRITUAL BEINGNESS.

LOVE. LIGHT. LIFE. TRUTH MERCY. JUSTICE. FAITH.
95

VISION.
The above is an octave. Representing the complete perfection and harmony of the celestial music of the spheres. CIRCUIT IN WHICH THE SPIRITUAL DOCTRINES OF LIGHT EMANATE FROM
1 LOVE 8 FAITH 2 Virtue

7 Brotherly kindness

3
Knowledge

6 Godliness

4
Temperance

5
Patience

96

THESE EIGHT, WHICH CONSTITUTE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD, INTERCONNECT. THEY FORM THE SEAMLESS CIRCUIT IN WHICH ALL THAT IS GODLY CONFIRM THE TRUE DOCTRINES THAT EVERY MEMBER OF THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD BELIEVE AND PRACTICE, (Second Epistle of Peter 1:1-8)

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

Chapter Six

BODY OF BELIEFS IN THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS
IN THE SCRIPTURES IT IS WRITTEN AND SO THE CHURCH MUST AND OUGHT TO BELIEVE AND FOLLOW. THUS, SAITH THE LORD ABOVE ALL, KNOW GOD… FIRST AND FOREMOST

“God is a Spirit: And they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth, (Gospel Book of John
4:234:23-24). Phil 3:3; ch 1:17 MAN MADE A SERIOUS MISTAKE IN CRITICALLY ANALYZING GOD. RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS, INCLUDING ZEALOUS RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND TEACHERS DO NOT UNDERSTAND. GOD IS A DIVINE SPIRIT. NOT TO BE ASSIDUOUSLY ANALYZED, INCLUDING CRITICALLY. NOT TO BE DIGITALLY 98

ANALYZED, OBSERVED, AND MEASURED, EVEN DISECTED, UPTO TO THE CELLULAR AND ATOMIC LEVEL. THE REALM AND THE NON-VISIBLE, NON-PHYSICAL, NON-MATERIAL, DIMENSION OF THE SPIRIT IS ONE OF LIVING ABSOLUTE BELIEVING FAITH. ON ONE’’S KNEES IN ALL YIELDEDNESS AND HUMBLENESS MUST ONE READ THE SCRPTURES ON GOD. THEN THE GOD OF HEAVEN WILL BE PLEASED TO OPEN HIS MIND TO UNDERSTAND. 2 “For all these things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been,” saith the LORD: ‘but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word,” (Book of Isaiah 66:2). MEN END UP BEING UNBELIEVERS. SKEPTICS. PROUDLY CYNICAL. THEY ARE GIVEN OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND, INSTEAD. PROUD, INTELLIGENT, BRAINY MORTALS BEGIN TO BE PUFFED UP. IN THE VANITY OF THEIR MINDS, EVEN IN THEIR HEART OF HEARTS, THEY THINK THEY CAN DISCOVER GOD. THEIR ENDLESS RESEARCH BRINGS THEIR MINDS UPTO A CEILING SOMEWHERE IN THE VOID. AND LIKE A CRYSTAL THAT BREAKS. NOT INTO UNDERSTANDING, BUT TO THE FORBIDDEN REALM OF THE MIND WHERE PRIDE AND VANITY DWELLS. THIS LEADS TO CONCLUSIONS SET IN STONE. INTO DOCTRINES IMPOSED UPON “LESSER” OTHERS. SUCH WAS 99

LUCIFER’S, “PERFECT IN BEAUTY AND WISDOM” SYNDROME, ( Books of the prophets Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel 27:3; 28:2-3, 12-15; 29:3, 17). IT BECOMES EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TO HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS WHEN THESE “DOCTRINES” BECOME THE “DOCTRINES AND CREEDS ADOPTED BY POWERFUL RELIGIOUS CONCLAVES AND COUNCILS.” AND ARE THEN IMPOSED UPON THEIR FOLLOWERS TO BE BELIEVED AND PRACTICED.

GOD REVEALS HIMSELF.
BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, GOD REACHES CONNECTS TO THE CARNAL HUMAN MIND. AND

IT IS NOT FOR MEN TO RESEARCH HIM, IN-DEPTH, AS THEY CALL IT TODAY. IT IS FOR MEN TO SEEK HIM THAT HE MAY HE MAY WORSHIP AND SERVE HIM. NOT TO INVESTIGATE HIM. THOSE WHO DO ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE. LIKE AN AUTOMATIC LAW THAT GOD HAS SET IN MOTION. A VAST GULF LIES BETWEEN ‘REASEARCHING’ GOD, IN-DEPTH, WITH ALL THE TOOLS OF MODERN SCHOLARSHIP AND ANALYSIS, AND THEN TO ADORN THEIR NAMES WITH A PUBLISHED THESIS ON GOD >>>>AND SEEKING GOD TO WORSHIP, 100

ADORE, LOVE, AND PRAISE, AND FOLLOW, AND OBEY, HIM. MEN INTRUDE DISRESPECTFULLY, EVEN WITH PROUD COUNTENANCE, AND DARING, INTO THE DIMENSION. IN THE REALM OF THE LIGHT, WHERE HE DWELLS, THAT GOD OWNS FOR HIMSELF AND BELONGS TO HIM, BECAUSE HE IS GOD.

The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s, but the earth, hath he given to the children of men, (Book of Psalms 115:16).
THEY ARE LONG DEAD AND TURNED TO DUST THOSE THAT BLASPHEMED AND DENIED GOD. FORGOTTEN IN THE BANISHED GARBAGE HEAP OF HISTORY.

CHRIST GAVE UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCRIPTURES
44 “And he said unto them, ‘These are the words which I spake

unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms concerning me. Ver. 6
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,” (Gospel Book of Luke 24:44-45).

“For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted above all gods,” (Book of Psalms 97::9)

FOR HE IS GOD THE ALMIGHTY
101

“HAVE YOU NOT KNOWN? >>>>>>>>>>>> HAVE YOU NOT HEARD? 21 HATH IT NOT BEEN TOLD YOU FROM THE BEGINNING? HAVE YE NOT UNDERSTOOD FROM THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH? Ps 19:1; Acts 14:17;
Rom.1:19

22 IT IS HE THAT SITTETH UPON THE CIRCLE OF THE EARTH, AND THE INHABITANTS THEREOF ARE AS GRASSHOPPERS;THAT STRETCHES OUT THE HEAVENS AS A CURTAIN, AND SPREADETH THEM OUT AS A TENT Job 9:8; Ps 104:2 TO DWELL IN: 23 THAT MAKETH THE PRINCES TO NOTHING, HE MAKETH THE JUDGES OF THE EARTH AS VANITY,” 25 TO WHOM WILL YE LIKEN ME, OR SHALL I BE EQUAL? SAITH THE HOLY ONE. ver 8
26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these

things, that bringeth not their hosts by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in Ps 147:3 power; not one faileth. 27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from God? 28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding, (Book
of the prophet Isaiah 40:21-28). 102 Ps 147:5

9 And thou, Solomon, my son, KNOW THOU THE GOD OF THY FATHER, and serve Him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek Him, He will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off forever,”
(First Book of Chronicles 28:9). Jer 9:24

SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE

KNOW THAT GOD IS THE DIVINE FAMILY, AND THE KINGDOM, OF GOD
14 “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Of whom the whole family on heaven and earth is named.”
(Epistle to the Ephesians 3:15) 6” For unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his

shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government, there shall be no end, upon the throne of his father David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD will perform this,”
9:6(Book of the prophet Isaiah 9:6-7) SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE. 103

DOCTRINE OF THE GODHEAD
TWO DIVINE BEINGS ARE MEMBERS OF THE GODHEAD OF THE ONE TRUE GOD:

26 “ Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…” (Book
of Genesis 1:26)

1 “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God,” (Gospel Book of John 1:1).
> ANCIENT OF DAYS GOD THE FATHER, (Gospel Book of John 6:27; Epistle to the Romans 15:6); HOLY FATHER, (Gospel Book of John 17:11); RIGHTEOUS FATHER, (Gospel Book of John 17:25); THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, (Book of the prophet Daniel 7:9. 13, 22); THE LORD GOD, (Gospel Book of Luke 1:32). From eternity to all eternity, HE IS GOD. He created by His Word, thru THE WORD, Who was God with God, (Gospel Book of John 1:1; Epistle to the Hebrews 1:8-10), they were created, and came into being, (“Let there be>>>>> Books of Genesis 1; Revelation 4:11). By the power of the Holy Spirit (Power of the HIGHEST, (Gospel Book of Luke 1:35), all things came to be. MAN CAN NOT BY HIS LIMITED COMPREHENSION UNDERSTAND HOW THE SPIRIT CREATES. MEN IS LIMITED TO CONCEIVING IN COMPARTMENTS AND MODULESWHETHER MICRO, OR MACRO DIMENSIONS, OF CREATED SUBSTANCES. OR SOLID 104

MATTER. MEASURABLE, OBSERVABLE BY HIS LIMITED 5 SENSES, WITH THE UTILIZATION OF MECHANICAL TOOLS HE FABRICATED. THE SPIRIT DIMENSION IS BEYOND THE REACHABLE REALM OF MEN’S LIMITED TIME AND CONCEPTION, WHICH ARE SEAMLESS, AND ARE ONE INTEGRATED WHOLE. THE LORD (YHVH—YAHWEH/JEHOVAH OF THE OLD TESTAMENT IS THE ROCK HE IS THE SAME ROCK (First Epistle to the Corinthians 10:4). WHO WAS CHRIST. JESUS THE CHRIST OF GOD IS, THEREFORE, EL SHADDAI), THE JEHOVAH / YHVH / YAHWEH OF THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES. THE SAME OLD TESTAMENT TESTIFY OF JESUS CHRST, (Gospel Book of John 5:39). THE SAME GOD IN THE BEGINNING IS THE GOD WITH GOD (Hebrew: elohiym) IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS 1:1. HE IS THE MELCHISEDEC, KING OF SALEM, WHICH IS KING OF PEACE, WITHOUT FATHER, WITHOUT MOTHER, WITHOUT DESCENT, HAVING NEITHER BEGINNING OF DAYS, NOR END OF LIFE; TO WHOM ABRAHAM PAID TITHES; MADE LIKE UNTO THE SON OF GOD; ABIDETH A PRIEST CONTINUALLY, (Books of Genesis 14:18; Psalms 110:4; Epistle to the Hebrews 5:6, 10:6; 6:20; 7:1-3, 10, 11; 10).

39 “Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of me,” (Gospel Book of John 5:39).
(Moses wrote of Christ: see verse 46). 105

WHEN ONE MEMBER OF THE GODHEAD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, (Mystery of Godliness, I Tim 3:16) HE SAID: NO MAN KNOWS THE FATHER, (Gospel Books of Matthew 11:27; Luke 10:22; NO ONE HEARD HIS VOICE, NOR SEEN HIS SHAPE; (Gospel Book of John 5:37). NO ONE HAS SEEN GOD AT ANYTIME, (John 1:18; 1 John 4:12). Ex. 33:20; Mat 11:27; 1 Tim. 6:16. MOSES SAW GOD. THE ELDERS OF ISRAEL SAW GOD, 9 Then went up Moses and Aaron, Nadah and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: 10 And they saw the God of Israel, and there was under his feet as it

were a paved work of sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness, 11 And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink,” (Book of Exodus 24:11).
THE SON CAME TO MAKE KNOWN THE FATHER TO THE HUMAN RACE. > FIRST, TO THE APOSTLES. TO THE EARLY BELIEVERS. AND BY THEM TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. THRU THE HOLY SCRIPTURES. > THEN TO MANKIND, READERS OF THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT TODAY SEE THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES ABOUT THE 106

LORD. YHVH. JEHOVAH. YAHWEH. I AM, EL SHADDAI. ADONAI, MELCHISEDEC. AND A HOST OF OTHER DIVINE NAMES. THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME DIVINE BEING WHO BECAME MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, A HUMAN IN FLESH AND BLOOD, BORN OF A VIRGIN,, JESUS THE CHRIST. THE WORD WHO WAS IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD. THE WORD, HE WAS GOD, GOD WITH GOD, (Gospel Book of John 1:1; Epistle to the Hebrews 1:5, 8). WHEN HIS EARTHLY MISSION OF 33 ½ YEARS WAS OVER, HE ASKED GOD THE FATHER TO RESTORE HIM TO THE GLORY HE HAD WITH THE FATHER IN THE GODHEAD (New Testament)-Elohiym (Old Testament) BEFORE THE WORLD WAS. BACK TO BEING GOD IN THE GODHEAD WITH GOD THE FATHER, (Gospel Book of John17:5).

‘SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES.” HE COMMANDED, (Gospel
Book of John 5:39).

46 “For had you believed Moses, you would have believed me, for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?” (Gospel Book of John 5:46).
MOSES WROTE MOSTLY ABOUT THE LORD. YHVH. YAHWEH, JEHOVAH. EL SHADDAI. THE “I AM”, YET JESUS CHRIST STATED THAT MOSES WROTE ABOUT CHRIST, (Gospel Book of John 5:46). SO MOSES WAS WRITING ABOUT THE CHRIST, SO WRITTEN ABOUT IN 107

THE NEW TESTAMENT IN GREEK, NAMED LORD, JEHOVAH, YHVH IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES, WRITTEN IN THE ORIGINAL HEBREW.

CHRIST in Greek: Christos. Yashua. JESUS.. Messiah. Emmanuel. Son of David, Son of man. Son of God. I AM, Savior. The WORD. Alpha and Omega.Bright and Morning Star. Daystar. The Lord. Only Begotten Son. The last Adam. Son of man. Son of God. Lamb of God. Savior., Great God. Captain of our Salvation. Author and Finisher of the Faith. Teacher. Master. My Lord. My God. Mediator between God and man. Apostle of our Faith. High Priest. Cornerstone. Redeemer. Emmanuel. The Way. The Truth. The Life. The Resurrection.
THE ONLY SCRIPTURES AT THAT TIME WERE THE OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES. THE NEW TESTA,MENT, WRITTEN IN GREEK, BY THE APOSTLES, AND PAUL, CHRIST’S APOSTLE TO THE GENTILES, WERE IN SCROLLS AND LETTERS READ TO THE CONGREGATIONS OF THE EARLIEST CHURCH OF GOD. THEY WERE PUT TOGETHER UNDER THE INSPIRATION OF GOD TO BECOME THE APPROVED CANON OF NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES:

16 “Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples,” (Book
of the prophet Isaiah 8:16). WHEN JESUS, THE SON OF MAN, THE SON OF GOD WAS ON EARTH WITH THE HUMAN RACE 2000 YEARS AGO, HE REVEALED AND SHED LIGHT ON THE GODHEAD. 108

HIS REVELATION AT THAT TIME TO THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS OF THE JEWS UPSET THEM. TO THEM, THE ONE TRUE GOD MEANS ONE DIVINE BEING AND PERSON. JEHOVAH, YHVH IS HASHEM AS THEY CALL HIM TODAY. THE TRUTH OF ELOHIYM BEING THE GODHEAD WITH MORE THAN ONE MEMBER IS BLASPHEMY TO THEM. TO US, IT IS ENLIGHTENMENT, FOR IT SET ARIGHT A WHOLE UNIVERSE OF MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT GOD: > 1. IN THE GODHEAD, IN Elohiym, WHEREIN THEY ARE ONE, (Gospel Book of John 10:30), GOD THE FATHER IS GREATER THAN THE SON WHO IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. WHO WAS JEHOVAH/YAHWEH/YHVH/LORD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT. JESUS THE CHRIST, WHO IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, IS THE LORD, THE ROCK, YIELDS TO THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, GOD THE FATHER (‘Not my will, but thy will be done,’(Gospel Book of Luke 22:42)

“My Father is greater than I.” (Gospel Book of John 14:28b).
> 2. GOD THE FATHER, THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, HAVE NOT SHOWN HIS SHAPE, NEITHER MANKIND HEARD HIS VOICE. > 3.THE ELDERS OF ISRAEL SAW GOD. MOSES SAW GOD. THEY HEARD THE VOICE OF THE ANGEL SPEAKING FOR GOD. SO THEY SAW THE GOD OF ISRAEL, JEHOVAH/YAHWEH/LORD/THE ROCK. WHO IS THE GOD THEY SAW? 109

WHY, OF COURSE, THE GOD WHO MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH. JESUS, THE CHRIST OF GOD. “IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD. THE WORD WAS GOD,” (Gospel Book of John 1:1). 26 “AND GOD* SAID, ‘LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE, AFTER OUR LIKENESS: (Book of Genesis 1:26). (*GOD – (Strong’s # 430 >> heb. elohiym >> plural of eloah (a god, the Deity, God), singular in use, plural in sense, more than one; gods in ordinary sense; (God, gods); a compound unity. There is more than one member, or person, in the Godhead, in Elohiym.

GOD THE FATHER IS THE SUPREME ARCHITECT OF ALL CREATION YHVH/JEHOVAH/YAHWEH/THE LORD JESUS CHRIST/ THE SON OF GOD IS THE BUILDER OF ALL CREATION THRU THE HOLY SPIRIT (THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST)
2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made,” (Gospel Book of John1:1-3). 8 “But unto the Son he saith, ‘Thy throne O God is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
110

9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 10 And, thou Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of thy hands,” (Epistle to the
Hebrews 1:8-10) GOD THE FATHER CHOSE NOT TO SHOW HIMSELF TO THE PHYSICAL WORLD OF HUMAN BEINGS. HE GAVE THAT RESPONSIBILITY TO THE OTHER PERSON IN THE GODHEAD>>>> YHVH. HE SENT HIM TO DO IT ON THIS VERY PLANET EARTH. GOD THE FATHER IS SO HOLY THAT HE HAD NOT CHOSEN TO BE IN TOUCH WITH MAN, MADE FROM THE DUST. THE GOD WHO BECAME FLESH AND BLOOD JESUS, HAD COME FACE TO FACE WITH THOSE HE CREATED. HE HAD TO CONFRONT AND ENDURE THE CONTRADICTION OF SO MANY SINNERS AGAINST HIMSELF, (Epistle to the Hebrews 12:3). BECAUSE IT WAS SO, THE WORLD OF RELIGION MADE DEEP, PROFOUND, EXTENSIVE, STUDIES AND LONG YEARS OF RESEARCH, WROTE, AND PUBLISHED THEIR AUTHORITATIVE OBSERVATIONS AND CONCLUSIONS ABOUT GOD. AND FINALLY, THEY CONCLUDED: “GOD IS A TRINITY”. THREE PERSONS CO-EQUAL. EQUAL IN RANK. AND CELESTIAL DEGREE. BECAUSE “GOD IS ONE IN THREE.” 111

“Ever searching and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth,” (Second Epistle to Timothy 3:7).
GOD IS NONE OF THE SORT. THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHO CAME FROM HEAVEN STATED THAT HE ALONE KNOWS GOD THE FATHER, AND THE FATHER, HIM. AND JESUS, ALONE, CAN TALK ON THE TRUTH ON GOD THE FATHER, WHICH HE DID, (Gospel Book of Matthew 11:27). THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT GOD. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST. THE POWER OF THE GODHEAD. (Gospel Book of Luke 1:35). LIMITATIONS IN THE HUMAN LANGUAGE AND EXPRESSION COULD ONLY DESCRIBE THE HOLY SPIRIT AS GOD’S ESSENCE. GOD’S AGENT. HIS POWER. THE POWER OF THE MOST HIGH GOD. GOD, THE SUPREME GOD IN THE GODHEAD, AND OVER ALL, REVEALS HIMSELF, IN THIS SACRED GOLDEN SCROLL SERIES XCI. HE WOULD NOT ALLOW HIS TRUE IMAGE AND TRUE BEING, TO BE MANIPULATED BY PICKY, PICAYUNISH FLESH AND BLOOD MORTALS, AND CARICATURED IN THEIR MINDS AND UNDERSTANDING OF HIM WHO MADE THEM. THEIR PUBLICATIONS CLAIMING FULL AUTHORITY TO REVEAL HIM DOES NOT HAVE APPROVAL OF GOD THE FATHER. NOT BY JESUS CHRIST WHO ALONE KNOWS HIM. 112

THAT APPROVAL CAN ONLY COME FROM JESUS CHRIST, WHO ALONE SPEAKS FOR GOD THE FATHER. HE HAD IT WRITTEN IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES:

NO MAN KNOWS THE FATHER –
(Gospel Book of Matthew 11:27) THE AUTHOR OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES EXPRESSLY FORBID ADDING, OR SUBTRACTING ANYTHING TO THE SCRIPTURES. WHO, AND WHAT, WAS JESUS BEFORE HIS HUMAN BIRTH? SINCERE BELIEVERS GET CONFUSED BY THE SCRIPTURES THAT, WHEN CORRECTLY LINKED TOGETHER, STATES:

JESUS CHRIST IS THE GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
10 “YE ARE MY WITNESSES,” saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, servant and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me,” (Book of the prophet Isaiah 43:10). WAS THE GOD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT FORMED?

113

WAS THE ANCIENT OF DAYS ALONE AS THE GOD IN THE GODHEAD – IN ELOHIYM – BEFORE JEHOVAH/YAHWEH/ YHVH?
FIRST OF GOD’S CREATION - WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN? 14 “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write: ‘These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God,” (Book of Revelation 3:14).

‘AMEN >>>is Jesus Christ > Jesus Christ is the spiritual Rock (1
Cor 3:10), the Rock is YHVH /LORD/Yahweh/Jehovah/the Eternal/ >>>> is the God with GOD (The Father) >>>> is the God of the Old Testament>>>>who was the Creator in the Beginning (Gen 1:1, John 1:1). QUESTION: Was YHVH who became Jesus Christ CREATED? The confusion, debates, and arguments running to and fro, back and forth, even among the leaders of major religious organizations, and front-ranked religious scholars, circa 2000-2010 goes on. THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHO WAS THE ROCK (First Epistle to the Corinthians 3:10), WHO WAS THE YHVH, REVEALED, IN THE ONLY INTIMATE CONVERSATION / COMMUNICATION BY JESUS CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD, TO GOD THE FATHER, IN THE GOSPEL BOOK OF JOHN 17:1-26, particularly verse 15:

114

“AND NOW, O FATHER, GLORIFY THOU ME WITH THINE OWN SELF WITH THE GLORY THAT I HAD WITH THEE BEFORE THE WORLD WAS.” Phil. 2:6; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:3 “ Glory that I had with thee … Glory of God with GOD >>>> before the world was – BEFORE CREATION >>>BEFORE THE BEGINNING>>>>BEFORE GENESIS 1:1, AND JOHN 1:1>>>>BEFORE TIME BEGAN--THE God WITH GOD was there. No beginning. No father. No mother. Liveth forever from eternity to eternity. HE WAS IN ELOHIYM. HE WAS God WITH GOD IN THE GODHEAD. YHVH WOULD ANSWER THE QUESTION RAISED FOR MORE THAN A THOUSAND YEARS ABOUT WHETHER CHRIST WAS CREATED BEFORE HIS HUMAN BIRTH, WHEN HE WAS THE ROCK, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 10:4), THE SAME YHVH OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, IN THE BOOK OF JOHN 17:5, AND TRIGGERED BY THE BOOK OF REVELATION 3:14 IN ITS TRANSLATION INTO THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE BY TRANSLATORS OF THE AUTHORIZED KING JAMES VERSION, AND SEIZED UPON BY SCHOLARS AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS TO MEAN CHRIST, BEFORE HIS HUMAN BIRTH, WAS FORMED AND CREATED. HE NOW SITS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, ANEW, RESTORED TO, AND IN, THAT POSITION AND GLORY OF DIVINE AUTHORITY, WHICH HE HAD WITH THE FATHER IN THE GODHEAD, EVEN BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF CREATION AND TIME. AND HAVING THE FULL TRUST AND CONFIDENCE OF GOD THE 115

FATHER, AND ONENESS WITH HIM. NOBODY. NO OTHER GOD, SITS BESIDE HIM, EVEN AS HE SITS BY THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF GOD THE FATHER – THE ANCIENT OF DAYS, ON HIS THRONE IN HEAVEN. NO GOD OF HIS AUTHORITY AND POSITION IN THE GODHEAD WILL EVER BE FORMED, CREATED, OR MADE, (Books of Psalms 1:1, 5; Acts 2:33; 7:55; Epistle to the Hebrews 1:13). NO ONE, NO OTHER GOD, SITS BY HIS SIDE IN THE GODHEAD, WHERE GOD THE FATHER SITS SUPREME RULER ON HIS EVERLASTING THRONE. THOSE WHO INTRUDE BY INTRUSIVE HUMAN INQUIRY, VANITY, AND PROUD CURIOSITY, INTO THE DEEPEST SECRETS OF GOD, THE GODHEAD, WHICH BELONGS TO GOD, ARE IN GRAVE PERIL OF LOSING THEIR PRICELESS SPIRITUAL LIBERTY GRANTED BY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, SUPREME GOVERNOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH. LEST THEY BE TURNED OVER INTO A REPROBATE MIND, PARALLEL TO LUFICER’s, INTO SATAN, THE DEVIL.

29“THE SECRET THINGS BELONG UNTO THE LORD OUR GOD: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law,”
(Book of Deuteronomy 29:29). THOSE WHO WILL BE BORN AGAIN INTO THE GOD FAMILY, WILL BE MADE MEMBERS OF THE DIVINE FAMILY. THEY WILL ALL BE CHILDREN OF GOD. NONE AMONG THEM WILL BE IN THE GODHEAD, WHERE 116

GOD THE FATHER AND CHRIST THE SON OF GOD ARE SO POSITIONED IN THE FAMILY, AND KINGDOM, OF GOD. AT THAT POINT IN TIME, ALAS, IN THE REALM OF EVERLASTING, THE GODHEAD WILL REVEAL THE DEEPEST MYSTERIES OF GOD TO HIS IMMORTAL CHILDREN. THE AND SO, THE LORD God OF THE OLD TESTAMENT DECLARED: “THERE IS NO OTHER GOD BESIDE ME.”

THE GODHEAD – NEW TESTAMENT ELOHIYM – OLD TESTAMENT
THIS REVELATION FROM GOD EXPLAINS THE TRUTH OF THE DUALITY IN ELOHIYM. A Hebrew word that is singular in use, and plural in sense. A compound unity. More than one member, or person in Elohiym (Godhead).

There is ONE Elohiym. Written in translations from the Hebrew word as LORD (KJV). There is ONE GODHEAD. Written in English translations from the Greek, as Godhead, (KJV). There is ONE TRUE GOD. The Highest. The HOLY SPIRIT is the power of the Highest, (Gospel Book of
Luke 1:35).

THEREBY GOD IS NOT A “TRINITY”.
117

The word “trinity” does not appear in the original New Testament scriptures. Holy Scriptures. Scriptures used to imply it is an error by addition by the original translators, who believed in the doctrine of the “Trinity:” 7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one.” (First Word,
Epistle of John 5:7).

8 *And there are three that bear witness on earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.”
(First Epistle of John 5:8). {Comma Johanneum, the Trinitarian formula, made its way into the third edition of Erasmus’ Greek NT (1522), after his first edition (1516) which did not contain it, because he found no Greek manuscripts that included it. It was heavily criticized. reading He obliged, and put the readin g into his later addition after pressure from the Catholic Church. The Council of Trent, 1546, decided to include the Comma inreadings in the Catholic Church, and incorporated it in their Old Latin Vulgate. Protestant This was accepted into many fundamentalist Protestant and Baptist churches, till today. Wikipedia encyclopedia} The above two verses were retained in translations by religious organizations that used it to support their belief in the Trinity doctrine} OCEANS OF WORDS TO PROMOTE AND PROVE THE TRINITY DOCTRINE ARE JUST THAT: OCEANS OF DOCTRINE 118

WORDS SIGNIFYING NOTHING. FOR IT DOES NOT EXIST IN REALITY. THIS DOCTRINE, BELIEVED BY ANCIENT HEATHEN AND PAGAN RELIGIONS, PRECLUDE THE ADDITION OF THE IMMORTAL CHILDREN OF GOD INTO THE GOD CENTRAL FAMILY, WHICH FORMS THE CENTRAL MESSAGE OF THE TRUE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD. THE DOCTRINE OF THE “TRINITY” IS ASSOCIATED AND ENTWINED WITH THE DOCTRINE OF THE “IMMORTALITY OF THE SOUL.” THIS LATTER DOCTRINE NEGATES TRUE SALVATION. FOR IF SALVATION BRINGS SAVED IMMORTALITY TO THE S AVED CHILDREN OF GOD, WHY THE NEED TO SAVE THEM IF THEIR SOUL IS ALREADY IMMORTAL? IT IS A SELF-CONTRADICTING SELFDOCTRINE, INDEED! THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY, BELIEVED BY HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS, AND THE DOCTRINE OF THE IMMORTALITY OF THE SOUL, EQUALLY BELIEVED BELIEVED BY THE SAME NUMBERS, BLINDED THE EYES OF MULTITUDES TO THE WONDROUS, GLORIOUS TRUTH OF THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

THE PURPOSE OF GOD FOR CREATING MANKIND IS TO CREATE IMMORTAL SONS OF GOD TO BE ADDED TO THE GOD FAMILY.
119

THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL BE SHARED BY GOD in the fullness of power WITH THE CHILDREN OF GOD. THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD. IT WILL BE THE SPIRITUAL POWER THAT WILL ENABLE THE CHILDREN OF GOD TO RULE THE UNIVERSE WITH CHRIST, as heirs, and joint-heirs with HIM, WHEN THEY INHERIT IT! (Epistle to the Romans 8:16-17.

THE HOLY SPIRIT
> THE POWER OF THE HIGHEST, (Gospel Book of Luke 1:35):

35 “And the angel answered and said unto her. The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that the holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. > WHEN MAN IS BORN AGAIN, BORN OF THE SPIRIT INTO THE FAMILY, AND KINGDOM, OF GOD, GOD THE FATHER WILL SHARE THE HOLY SPIRIT WITH THEM WHO WILL BECOME IMMORTAL BEINGS. THAT IS THE ONLY WITH WHICH, AND BY WHICH, THEY TOO, CAN RULE THE UNIVERSE WITH CHRIST.
GOD RULES THE UNIVERSE BY THE LAW OF LOVE

THEY LIVE BY HIS HOLY WORD

120

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name, (Book of Psalms
137:2) 5:7 Ps 28:2; 1 Ki. 8:29; Ps

“Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God,” (Gospel Books of Matthew
4:4; Luke 4:4). SO IT IS WRITTEN THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE

WHY IS THERE IS DUALITY IN MAN’S NATURE?
> 1. “Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it. For in the day thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die,”(Book of Genesis 2:16-17). > Be very careful that, even as it is proferred to you, and attempts are made to teach truth and error together TO YOU, ACCEPT IT NOT. INGEST NOT, NEITHER EAT. Assimilate it not into your mind that it becomes your guiding store of knowledge and understanding. For if you do, your wisdom will be as flawed as the rest of the world. THE PERPLEXITY APOSTLE PAUL WRESTLED WITH

15 For that which I do I allow not; for what I would, that do I not, but what I hate, that do I. 16 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
121

17 For know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but now to perform that which Gen. 6:5; 8:21 is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now If I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
Gal. 5:17; ch. 6:13, 19

24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin,” (Epistle to the Romans 7: 25).
THE SEED OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL INCORPORATED INTO MAN’S VERY DNA. THIS PRODUCES THIS DUALITY IN EVERY MAN. THIS PRODUCES THE NEVER ENDING INNER CONFLICT WITHIN EVERY MAN AND WOMAN ON EARTH. THE APOSTLE PAUL ARTICULATED THIS DILEMMA, BY ADMITTING ITS VERY PRESENCE IN HIMSELF. SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE.

122

Thereby Live by the Pure Word of God

DO YOU HAVE AN IMMORTAL SOUL?
> Man CREATED. Read how it all began: 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 ch 3:19, 23 living soul,*” (Book of Genesis 2:7).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------*heb. nephesh >>>> that which breathes; a breathing creature; mortally (Strong’s: 5315). *Gk. psuche >>>> used interchangeably: spirit, soul; , vitality, linked with emotion, emotional life; life, linked with mind and heart, seat of thinking , feeling, and purpose, (Strong’s: 5590).

> Man became a living soul. Yes, man is a living soul. SO MAN DOES NOT HAVE A SOUL INSIDE HIS MORTAL BODY. HE IS A LIVING SOUL.

“The soul that sinneth, it shall die,” (Book of Ezekiel 18:4, 20).
Rom 6:23 SO MAN DOES NOT HAVE AN IMMORTAL SOUL. SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE.

123

THERE IS A SPIRIT IN MAN
8 “But there is a spirit* in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding,” (Book of Job 32:8). Prov 2:6 *SPIRIT- Gk. pneuma >>>>non-physical element that God formed in man, Blended with his physical brain, his mind is formed, that will enable him to receive and understand spiritual truths. To enable him to distinguish between right and wrong, and make decisions, thereby. He then is able to think, and reason. By free will, he can make choices, make decisions to do, or not to do. His mind, with the spirit-in-man, can then be reached with inspiration by the Holy Spirit, to form both human, and spiritual, character. It records the chronicles of his entire life and his spiritual character as finally formed. When man dies, his spirit returns to the man’s Creator, GOD, for safekeeping, so to speak, (Book of Ecclesiastes 12:7):

7 “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was; and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” Gen. 3:10; ch. 3:21
God reaches out to man, and the Spirit of God links to man’s spirit to give man, by inspiration, wisdom and understanding.

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 within him,”
(Books of the prophets Zechariah 12:1; Isaiah 42:5).

124

THIS IS THE SAME SPIRIT THAT LATER IN DEATH RETURNS TO THE DIVINE CREATOR. THE CHARACTER FORMED, BUILT, AND PERFECTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT IN MAN, OVER A SPIRITUALLY CONVERTED LIFETIME WILL BE THE VERY CONSTITUENT SPIRIT AND MIND THAT GOD WILL INVEST WITH A SPIRITUAL BODY TO BECOME HIS IMMORTAL SON, HIS CHILD WHO WILL LIVE FOREVER. THIS IS THE TRUE SALVATION WHICH IS A GIFT OF GOD, AND GRANT THE REWARD OF A CROWN OF LIFE, WITH HONOR AND GLORY.

27 “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels: and the he shall reward every man according to his works,” (Gospel Book of Matthew 16:28).

CREATION. NOT EVOLUTION THE TRUE STORY OF CREATION.
In the Book of *Genesis 1:1-2, it is written:

1 IN THE BEGINNING, GOD* CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH. John 1:1; Heb 1:10; Ps 8:3 2 AND THE EARTH WAS** WITHOUT FORM**** AND VOID****a; AND DARKNESS WAS UPON THE FACE OF THE DEEP. AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD*** MOVED UPON THE FACE OF THE WATERS, (Book of Genesis 1:1-1). *Genesis – heb. “genesis”, beginning.
God* – heb. “elohiym”, a uniplural word, a compound unity. More than one person, divine being in the Godhead. Was** - Strong’s # 1961--- heb. :“hayah”, to be, become, became Spirit renewest the face of the earth*** 125

(Book of Psalms 104:30) Without form****>> Strong’s # 8414 heb.: “tohuw”—confusion, desolate, empty, wilderness, state of vanityl and VOID****a >> heb. ““bohuw” >> emptiness, void, destroyed wasteland hebrew >> Tohuw va bohuw is a phrase that go together as used in the Bible, (Book of the prophets Isaiah 35:18; and Jeremiah 4:23). NOTE: The planet Earth was created most beautiful and ultra magnificent in perfect order. At that time, in its beginning, the sons* of GOD – the angels of heaven beheld it and sang for joy, (Book of Job 38:7). Ch 1:6* ALL THE SHARPEST SPACE TELESCOPES, SUCH AS THE “HUBBLE”, SHOW DESOLATION IN ALL THE SOLAR SYSTEM, AND HEAVENLY BODIES BEYOND. ONLY THE PLANET EARTH MANIFEST EXCEEDING BEAUTY AND DYNAMIC LIFE EXISTING. LIVING CREATURES OF ALL TYPES AND SPECIES. FLORA AND FAUNA OF INCREDIBLE VARIETY. OCEAN AND SEAS. AND FRESH WATER LAKES AND RIVERS TEEMING WITH LIFE. ALL FOR THE USE AND BENEFIT OF MAN. AND THE FOOD CHAIN IN A PERFECT SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP. ONLY THE PLANET EARTH SHOW BALANCE IN NATURE AND THE EXISTENCE OF ACTIVE, OPERATING SYMBIOSIS AMONG LIVING THINGS. 126

THE AWESOME DESIGN AND ORDER IN CREATION IS VISIBLE, AND OBSERVABLE. EVIDENT, MEASURABLE, THEY ALL SHOW THE PRESENCE OF THE ALL-WISE, ALLKNOWING CREATOR GOD WHO MADE THEM ALL. ALL CREATION BEARS THE SIGNATURE OF THE OMNIPOTENT, OMNIPRESENT, CREATOR GOD. THEY ARE FOOLS WHO SAY THERE IS NO GOD, (Book of Psalms 14:1; 53:1). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE.

THE ORIGINAL CREATED EARTH BECAME…
WHY DID IT BECOME TOHU AND BOHUw, WITHOUT FORM (IN CONFUSION) AND VOID? GOD CREATED THE EARTH. PERFECT IN BEAUTY. HE IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT DECENCY AND ORDER, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 14:33). THE EARTH IS CALCULATED TO BE 4.5 BILLION YEARS OLD. ALL AUTHENTIC SCIENTIFIC CALCULATIONS BEAR THAT OUT. SO THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE EARTH WAS NOT.

127

SOME BILLIONS OF YEARS LATER, THE FORMER ARCHANGEL LUCIFER, FORMER AMGEL OF LIGHT AND CARETAKER OF PLANET EARTH, CONNIVED WITH ONE THIRD OF THE CREATED ANGELS OF HEAVEN. THEY CONFEDERATED IN REBELLION TO OVERTHROW GOD. Unthinkable, yet true!

THERE WAS A WAR IN HEAVEN
THERE WAS AN INTERSTELLAR WAR IN OUTER SPACE, BETWEEN THE FAITHFUL ANGELS OF HEAVEN. AND THE DECEIVED ANGELS. THE REBELLIOUS ANGELS, WITH LUCIFER, WERE DEFEATED. THEIR EVIL ACT BROUGHT RUIN AMONG THE HEAVENLY BODIES. EARTH WAS IN CHAOS AND BECAME VOID. ALL CREATED LIVING THINGS AND CREATURES BECAME EXTINCT. INCLUDING THE PERFECTLY CREATED DINOSAURS. A PRIMEVAL WORLD OF INCREDIBLE BEAUTY SURROUNDED THEM. THEY WERE THE PETS OF THE ANGELS, AND THE EARTH WAS THEIR PLAYGROUND. THE EARTH CARETAKER ANGELS GOT BORED. AND INORDINATELY LOOKED UP TO HEAVEN. LUCIFER, THEIR LEADER, COMMENCED HIS DECEPTION. TO RISE UP TO THE NORTH IN THE HEAVENS, WHERE GOD’S THRONE IS. 128

AND TO TAKE OVER GOD’S THRONE. THIS WAS TO BE THE FIRST ATTEMPT OF COUP D’ETAT BY WICKED IMMORTAL BEINGS AGAINST THEIR DIVINE CREATOR! IN THAT ANGELIC REBELLION, ALL THE DINOSAURS PERISHED, AND THE PRIMEVAL WORLD WITH THEM. ONLY THEIR DISCOVERED FOSSILS PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF THEIR PREVIOUS EXISTENCE. AND THE GIGANTIC FLORA AND FAUNA THAT SURROUNDED THEM IN THEIR DAY. THE CHAOS IS EVIDENCED BY THE DEFORMED VISIBLE LAYERS OF ROCK STRATA ALL OVER THE EARTH. LUCIFER, THE LIGHT BRINGER, BECAME SATAN THE DEVIL. THE ADVERSARY. AND THE REBELLIOUS ANGELS BECAME MALIGNANT DEMONS AND WICKED SPIRITS. THEY WERE CAST DOWN TO THE EARTH, AND THEY ARE HERE ON EARTH TODAY. AS THEY WERE CREATED IMMORTAL SPIRITS, THEY REMAINED INVISIBLE, AND STAY SO TO THIS DAY. YET THEY EXIST. WITH IMMENSE POWER. ALLOWED TO VEX. PROVOKE. INFLUENCE,. AND TEST THE HUMAN BEINGS, THEY CAN INDIRECTLY BRING DESTRUCTION. BUT NOT ALLOWED TO KILL THEM DIRECTLY.

129

SATAN THE DEVIL IS CALLED IN THE SCRIPTURES, PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR. THE RULER OF THIS WORLD. THEREBY, THE DEVIL CAN BROADCAST WICKED IMPULSES INTO HUMAN MINDS. THESE WICKED SPIRITS HAVE ONE SOLE PURPOSE: TO DESTROY THE HUMAN RACE. WHY? BECAUSE THESE CREATED MORTALS, BORN OF WOMEN, FLESH AND BLOOD, ARE THE TRUE GODFOREORDAINED HEIRS OF THE EARTH. AND ULTIMATELY, THE WHOLE CREATED UNIVERSE. THE CREATED HUMAN BEINGS ARE THE HEIRS OF SPIRITUAL SALVATION. THIS GLORIOUS FUTURE IS THE DESTINY OF THE HUMAN FAMILY. THIS WONDERFUL DESTINY WAS THE ONE THEY (SATAN THE DEVIL AND THE FALLEN ANGELS), COVETED, AND WANTED TO BE. THE ANGELIC SPIRIT BEINGS WERE NOT CREATED FOR THIS GLORIOUS DESTINY. THEY WERE TO MINISTER TO THE HEIRS OF SALVATION, (Epistle to the Hebrews 1:14). Ps. 103:20; Mat. 18:10 THE FALLEN ANGELS REFUSED AND REJECTED THIS PURPOSE FOR WHICH THE ETERNAL CREATOR GOD MADE THEM. THEY LEFT THEIR FIRST ESTATE, AND 130

COVETED WHAT WAS NOT FOR THEM, (Epistle of Jude verse 6). ALL THESE DIVINE REVELATIONS BELIE AND DISPROVE THE ‘THEORY OF EVOLUTION” AS A MAN MADE LIE, YET TODAY, TAKEN AS INCREASINGLY TRUE, AND A FACT.

BY PRODUCTS OF DEMON PRACTICES
THE ETERNAL GOD FORBIDS CREATED HUMAN BEINGS TO BELIEVE IN MYTHS AND FABLES. SO HE WILLS FOR THE TRUE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, REVEALING THE TRUE PURPOSE OF CREATION AND FINAL SPIRITUAL DESTINY OF THE HUMAN RACE, TO BE PROCLAIMED IN ALL THE WORLD. TO ALL NATIONS. TO EVERY CREATURE. TO PROCLAIM THE GOD-ORDAINED WAY BY WHICH THE FAMILY OF MAN OUGHT TO WALK ON THAT WILL LEAD TO THE TRUE DESTINY OF MANKIND, AND NOT ANY OTHER. CHURCH SO IT WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE.

THE ORIGINAL MAN A PERFECT CREATION
31 “And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day,
(Book of Genesis 1:31). THERE WAS NO HUMAN NATURE IN THE ORIGNAL CREATED FIRST MAN, ADAM. 131

(“Very good” is an expression of the superlative. Absolute perfection in every way).

WHERE DID HUMAN NATURE COME FROM?
> HUMAN NATURE commenced, or was born, in the Garden of Eden: 6 “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and goo d

that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired, to make eyes one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat. and gave also wise unto her husband with her, and he did eat. 1 Tim 2:14
WHEN the first two created human beings partook of the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, human nature was born in mortals. Self-will took over. Adam, when confronted by the LORD, did not accept the blame. Vanity and pride already manifested in the tainted character of the first man. He pointed his finger to Eve. Finger-pointing started thenceforth. Humility was not in him anymore. Innocence was gone. The LORD held the man, Adam, responsible. He was the head, the leader, of the first family. The stronger vessel, so to speak. And so, it shall be so, throughout all the generations of the human race. Thru all the offsprings of mortals, flesh and blood, born of woman. SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. BELIEVE. > MAN-INDUCED POVERTY CAME TO BE: 132

“Cursed is the ground for thy sake.; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all 1 Sam 15:23 the days of thy life.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------Constant insufficiency shall dog men’s struggles and efforts. It will be only toil and strength-draining labors.

-------------------------------------------------------------------18 “ Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou Ps 104:14 shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return

unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. (Book of Genesis 3:17-19). 2 Thes 2:10
Constant toil, and hard-scrabble has become the lot of the human beings since that time till today. All the talk by politicians and do-gooders about fighting poverty, man’s stubborn, proud, selfish way, and self-willed multiple approaches and trial-and-error experiments, is vanity and striving after wind. TEACHING MANKIND TO LIVE AND WALK GOD’S WAY IS THE TRUE SOLUTION! Follow these that God has commanded, and you and your children shall live, (Book of Deuteronomy 6:1-25; 7:11-26; 8:1; 9:1). 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and

keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
133

14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil,” (Book of
Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. > WHY WERE YOU BORN? Why did the Lord GOD Almighty bring human life into existence? The ultimate resolution, the final bottom line of the whole matter: 26 “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them

have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them,” (Book of Genesis
1:26-27). 13 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of men,’ (Book of Ecclesiastes 12:13). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. > WHAT IS ALL FOR? Did the All-wise, all-seeing, all knowing GOD have an eternal purpose in bringing such a life to spring from this terrestrial plane? 134

4 “What is man. that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
Gen 1:26

7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; 8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the seas; and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD< our Lord, how excellent is all thy name in all the earth,” (Book of Psalms 8:4-9). 6 “ But one in a certain place testified, saying, “What is man that thou art mindful of him, or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels, thou crownedst him with glory and honor, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. (Epistle to the Hebrews 2:6-8).
Mat. 28:18; Eph. 1:22 SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. > HOW DO YOU GET THERE? How will the Most High GOD bring such an everlasting goal for that mortal, born of woman, flesh and blood, to pass in the process of time? 135

‘I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. NO MAN COMETH TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME,” (Gospel Book of John 14:6).

YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN
3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto thee. except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
ch. 1:13

4 Nicodemus said unto him, ‘How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Mark 16:16 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I say unto thee, you must be born again. 8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and they hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth; so is everyone that is born of the Spirit,” (Gospel Book of John 3:3-8). 50 “Now this I say, brethren, flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of God, neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. Zech. 9:14 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality,” (First Epistle to Corinthians 15:50-53).
136

NOTE; CHRIST STATES THAT OUR DIRECTION IS TO GOD THE FATHER, THRU JESUS CHRIST, WHO IS THE DOOR TO HIM. SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE.

WHAT IS YOUR FINAL DESTINY?
49 “As we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither do corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold I show you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. 52 In the moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruption must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, ‘Death is swallowed up in victory, 57 Thanks be to God which giveth us the vicotory, through our Lord Jesus Christ,” (First Epistle to the Corinthians 17: 49-57).
> WHEN WILL THIS BE?

23 “But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming,” (First Epistle to the
Corinthians15:23). 137

16 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord, (Second Epistle to the Thessalonians 4:1617).

WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM
2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is,” (First Epistle of John 3:2).
Is 56:5; Rom. 8:15; 2 Cor. 4:17

20 “For our conversation is in heaven: from whence also we look for the Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ; Eph. 2:8; Col. 3:1, 3 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the workings whereby he is able to subdue all things unto himself,” (Epistle to the Philippians 3:2021). When will the fulfillment of that divine purpose of the Supreme God of Heaven and Earth, and the whole, vast universe, come to be?

AT THE END OF OUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY INTO GOD

138

“That they all may be one, as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that we may also be one in us,” (Gospel Book of John 17:21) 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule, and all authority and power. 25 But he must reign till he hath put all enemies under his feet,”
(First Epistle to the Corinthians 15:24-25).

28 “And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all,” (First Epistle to the Corinthians 15:28).
SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE. He Came To Magnify the Law (Of LOVE) and Make It Honorable (Book of the prophet Isaiah 42:21) > He came to make men understand the letter of the codified Law, that kills, if taken and applied abruptly, strictly, and very literally, without room for mercy, studied judgment and weighing of the circumstances and facts. iF not tempered with kindness in its application. It is black and white, If you sin, zaaaap! zzzath! comes the retribution and punishment. Death, without mercy! Eye for an eye. Tooth for a tooth! Do it, man, right now, or you’re dead! Behead! Cut off the head at once! Cut off the fingers! Cut off the hands!

139

READ THE HEART. READ THE ATTITUDE. READ THE MOTIVE.
> Christ taught balance. Emotional maturity. Poise. Calm. Serenity of spirit. Peace. Carnal, rebellious, despiteful, proud men hate the Law of Love. They profess to love God, yet at the same time, with their tongue, their lips, from their thoughts and in the core of their hearts and minds, deny His holy, and perfect Law of Love. They denounce it as legalistic. Heavy burden. A ball and chain. A prison. The restrictions ‘DO NOT’s, are impositions of an unjust God. ALL THESE , THEY JEER! That the Law is done away by the sacrifice and death of Christ at Calvary. That Christ has nailed the holy Ten Commandments of true righteousness to the cross. LISTEN TO WHAT THE CREATOR OF MANKIND AND ALL THE WORLDS DECLARED WHEN HE WAS IN THE FLESH, AMONG FLESH AND BLOOD HUMN BEINGS: The LAW Remains Forever:

17 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy , but to fulfill.
Rom. 10:4

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Luke 16:17 140

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven,” (Gospel Books of
Matthew 17-20; Luke 16:17).

THE LAW AND THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE HOLY
119:172 “MY TONGUE SHALL SPEAK OF THY WORD; FOR ALL THY COMMANDMENTS ARE RIGTEOUSNESS, (Book of Psalms119: 172). 11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. 12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good,” (Epistle to the Romans 7: 11-12).
SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE

Spiritual Mind Set Of the Believer and Practitioner of the Faith Once Delivered to the Saints
“Teach a child in the way he should go (BY GOD’S WORD, WILL, WAY, AND WORK), and when he is old (IN GOD’S
141

KINGDOM A TRILLION TRILLION YEARS OLD), he will not depart from it,” (Book of Proverbs 22:6). “Let this mind be in you, which was in Christ Jesus,”
(Epistle to the Philippians 2:5). (God will put fear in their hearts---they will not depart from God: Book of the prophet Jeremiah 32:40). Isaiah 55:3 > New members of the Church of God are called, and considered,

babes-in-Christ.
> Thereby, there is the right effort to make them undergo an intensive orientation in the first stage doctrines and practices, to stronger meat. God decrees this for the body of believers. > They are carefully nourished with the milk of the word. The first things. The first principles. In stages, for the reason they do not suffer spiritual feeding indigestion. Thru gentle feeding. By loving care in teaching the truths of God, (Epistle to the Hebrews 8:1-3). > The young in the faith are treated with care. Lest they get hurt and offended unnecessarily. The “spiritual giants” in the Church ought not to look down on these young ones, so to speak. In due time, they wil mature, and then are able to receive stronger meat of the word. Correction, and rarely, rebuke, should be given gently, done carefully. and the latter – sparingly. IT IS WRITTEN: “Any one who causes offense on these little ones, it is a better a millstone were hanged around his neck, and is 142

drowned in the sea.” (Gospel Books of Matthew 18:6; Mark 9:42; Luke 17:2). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF GOD SO BELIEVE Teach All Men To Observe All That I Have Commanded You (THE DOCTRINES OF GOD) (Gospel Book of Matthew 28:20) SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE.

SERVING AND GIVING LIFE
SERVANT OF ALL

25 “ But Jesus called them unto him, and said, ‘Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. 26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; 1 Pet.5:3 27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant,” (Gospel Books of Matthew 20:26-27; 23:11; Mark
10:44). SERVE ONE ANOTHER

13 “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another,” (Epistle to the Galatians 5:13).

SERVE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

Hebrews 11 CHAPTER OF LIVING FAITH
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
2 1

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

148

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which Abraham he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he Abraham that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff. Joseph By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called Moses the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them. By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days. By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David Gedeon also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Samuel

Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions. Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth. And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without Go us should not be made perfect.

THE TWELVE APOSTLES WERE SUCH MEN
40 And to him (Gamaliel) they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and they let them go. 41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name, 4 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ,” (Book of Acts 5:40-42) Stephen of the earliest New Testament Church of God, in the very time of the twelve apostles, was one of them: 8 “And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people,” (Book of Acts 6:8). Chapter 7, from verses 2 through 60, Stephen boldly proclaimed the true story of the people of Israel, and how he told the ruling leaders of the religion of the Jews that their fathers received the law by disposition of angels, AND HAVE NOT KEPT IT. That their fathers rejected the prophets who proclaimed the coming of the Just One (THE TRUE MESSIAH, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST), and they betrayed and murdered those prophets. For that unvarnished truth and fact in the history of the God-chosen nation of Israel recapitulated in all boldness and fearlessness, without equivocation, before those leaders of religion, THEY STONED STEPHEN TO DEATH,

heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 56 And (STEPHEN) said, ‘Behold I see the heavens opened, and the son of man standing on the right hand of God. 59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, ‘Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. ch.9:14; Ps. 31:5; Luke 23:46

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

Chapter Seven

THE HOLY BIBLE
4 “But he answered and said, It is written, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.” (Gospel Books of Luke 4:4 ; Matthew
4:4).

THE ETERNAL CREATOR GOD made man, He placed him on the earth. He breathed into his nostrils, the breath of life, and he became a living soul. He gave life to the created man. He granted him a space of time in which to live his days. From birth, all the way to the grave.

3 “KNOW ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that made us, and not we ourselves: we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture,”
(Book of Psalms 100:2-3; 119:73). That man is to live his life. He is to live out his life. His existence. His very and every organic constitution of his being bespeaks bare ignorance at his beginnings. Quite unlike other created creatures, particularly the animal kind who live by instinct built-in to them, 155

mankind was made to learn how to live, using his mind, and free will. This was so at every man’s beginnings. It remains so for every mortal, flesh and blood, born of woman, today. There has to be A WAY OF LIFE he must go by. Every man is born carnal. He commences his every day life by living by a set of rules. And disciplined personal order. Man is not an animal that lives by instincts and automatic way of doing things. Man was made a human being of free will. He was made to make decisions. Whether for ill, or for good. Whether right, or wrong. CHARACTER is the fruit of that way of living. Mortal man, born of woman, flesh and blood, would need a guide how to live. A manual how to operate the body and mind. HE DID NOT CREATE MAN TO DWELL AND INHABIT THE EARTH IN ANARCHY. LOOK AT MAN TODAY TODAY. MAN HAS IGNORED., WHOLESALE ALMOST, THE DIVINE ROAD MAP, HE PROUDLY DESIGNED HIS OWN. AND NOTHING WORKS, THEIR BOTTOMLINE AT THE END OF THE DAY: ALL IS BUT ONE BIG LIE. AS MAN DESIGNS MORE AND OTHERS. THEN JUNKS IT, AND DEVISES ANOTHER. BY 156

CONTINUED TRIAL AND ERROR. THE MESS IS GETTING WORSE.

TO THOSE WHO LIVE BY MAN’S SELFTHOUGHT, AND SELF-TAUGHT, WISDOM
The vast majority of mankind live by the recorded wisdom of their ancients and their sages. They go by the traditions that have taken root and grew in their native around. This has been the way practiced by all the families and tribes, that became countries, and nations through all the centuries. Through, as way far back in the earliest antiquities. All of these became their philosophy of life, individual, or national. A philosophy of life drawn by each and every tribe, family, or a people, a nation, or the country’s wise men sages, teachers of man, leading lights. Most of it set down after a process of time of thinking. Observation. Or a moment of enlightenment. The world is full of it. It is mankind’s treasured legacies from their elders and forefathers. Each one, however bright and enlightened, good and noble, it seems, is a product of a mind, or minds, laden with both truth and error. Of the knowledge of good and evil. Passed on all the way from the Garden of Eden, when the first parents of humanity, Adam and Eve, partook of the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil. All of these were products of the knowledge of truth and error. The millennial admixture in human knowledge and learning. 157

THE NET RESULT IS WHAT IS WITNESSED AROUND TODAY, IN THE VERY 21ST CENTURY!

“There is a way that seemeth right to a man, but the end thereof are 14:12; 16:25) the ways of death,” (Book of Proverbs
Rom. 6:21

THE REVEALED DIVINE ROAD MAP FOR EVERY MAN AND WOMAN ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY TO GOD
THE MOST HIGH GOD REVEALED HOW THESE MORTALS OUGHT TO CONDUCT THEIR LIVES. HOW TO MANAGE THEIR AFFAIRS. AND HOW, TO LIVE EXACTLY, AND WELL, IN PERFECT BALANCE. GOD CAUSED THE DESIGN OF THE PERFECT AND FULL GUIDE, AS TO A ROAD MAP, HOW TO GO ABOUT, TO REACH THEIR SMALLER SUB-GOALS, AND THE FINAL ONE GOAL, IN THIS SACRED GOLDEN SCROLL IT IS REVEALED. THEY ARE WRITTEN AND SECURELY CONTAINED IN PERFECT ORDER IN THE BOOK CALLED THE HOLY BIBLE. THE HOLY SCRIPTURES. ALL SIXTY SIX BOOKS. THIRTY NINE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND COVENANT. TWENTY SEVEN IN THE NEW TESTAMENT. THE FIRST THIRTY NINE BOOKS WERE ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN HEBREW. 158

THE NEXT TWENTY SEVEN WERE WRITTEN IN GREEK. NOW THEY WERE, AND ARE, TRANSLATED IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. AND IN SEVERAL OTHER MAJOR LANGUAGES, AND DIALECTS, WORLDWIDE. HE CAUSED IT TO BE WRITTEN BY INSPIRATION THRU THE HOLY SPIRIT. NOTE: THE EARLIEST FIRST CENTURY DISCIPLES AND FOLLOWERS OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST DID NOT HAVE THE NEW TESTMAMENT SCRIPTURES, AS THEY ARE SEALED TODAY. THEY ONLY HAD THE OLD TESTAMENT ESCRIPTURES. THEREBY, THE MODERN 21ST CENTURY DISCIPLES AND FOLLOWERS, BELIEVERS AND PRACTITIONERS OF THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS, ARE BLESSED WITH THE SIXTY SIX BOOKS OF THE BIBLE TODAY. THIS FULFILLS WHAT THE PROPHET ISAIAH WAS MADE TO WRITE FOR TODAY:

“BIND UP THE TESTIMONY. SEAL THE LAW AMONG MY DISCPLES.” (Book of the prophet Isaiah 8:16).

GOD-BREATHED HOLY SCRIPTURES
2 “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name,” (Book of Psalms 138:2). Ps. 28:2; Ps.

>> “Bind up the testimony. Seal the law among my disciples,” (Book of the prophet Isaiah 8:18). >> “To the law and to the testimony. If they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them,” (Book of the prophet Isaiah 8:20) >> “Now all these things happened unto them for examples: they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come,” (First Epistle to the Corinthians 10:11). Rom. 15:4; Phil 4;5; Heb. 10:25 >> “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for

our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope,” (Epistle to the Romans 15:4).
>> “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,

which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works,” (Second Epistle to Timothy 3:15-17). 20 “Knowing this first that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation: 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit,”
(Second Epistle of Peter 1:20-21). >> They were written for our guide to salvation and everlasting life. 160

MAN IS COMMANDED TO SEARCH THEM
Gospel Book of John 5:39

“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life; and they are they which testify of me.”
Book of the prophet Isaiah 8:20

“To the law and to the testimony”: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.”
> They are commended to search and study them, (Book of Acts 17:11; 8:28, 29). “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether these things were so. Is. 34:16; Luke 16:29; John 5:39 > They are reproved that were unskillful in them, or slow to believe them, (They can make you wise unto salvation, (Second Epistle to Timothy 3:15). > If they be ignorant, simple, and unlearned, they can instruct them, (Books of Psalms 19:7; Proverbs 21:11) > If out of the narrow and strait way, lost to the broad way to the left, and lost to broad way to the right, they will bring you home to the center, towards GOD THE FATHER, thru the Lord Jesus Christ, THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. With the spiritual power of the Holy Spirit, 161

6 Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh >>>> unto the Father, >>>> but by me,” (Gospel Book of John 14:6). > If one’s life is out of order, made helter skelter and confused, and dysfunctional, they will reform and reorder you, and bring order to your disordered, dysfunctional life.

“Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation (CONDUCT, BEHAVIOR, ATTITUDE) his way Ps. 27:6; Gal. aright, to him will I show the salvation of God.”
6:16 > If in heaviness and depression, they will comfort you, and lift you up anew, (Book of the Lamentations 3:41). > If dull and deadened, they will quicken and renew you. > If chilled and cold, they will inflame you. Set you on fire again. > If jaded and stale, they will refresh your hearts and minds. > If shaken, disappointed, they will edify you and bring renewed inspiration and driving motivation upon you, FOR THEY ARE SPIRIT. AND THEY ARE LIFE: 63 “It is the

spirit that quickeneth: the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life,” (Gospel Book of
John 6:63).

THE MYSTERY AND MIRACLE OF EVERY WORD OF GOD SET IN THE HOLY BIBLE
162

Each word and phrase in the Sacred Scriptures are truly seeds of the Holy Spirit, and of Life.

divine

When read carefully and studiously, studied, meditated upon, prayed about, each word seed seemingly. albeit literally, blossoms, sprouts, and expands. And when linked with all the other word seeds in the Holy Bible, by the Holy Spirit, wondrous things come out and are seen, and understood, by the mind’s eye. This is true enlightenment approved, and revealed, by the Great God. For these word seeds of spirit and of life are God-breathed. These moments of enlightenment radiate the fruit of the Spirit, and races throughout the entire being of the enlightened one. His whole life and being is enveloped in the Light from God, and filled with the outpouring of the supply of the Holy Spirit, the power of the Highest, that he may be a worthy and holy instrument in the hands of God.

A man who has set his mind and heart to go, to embark, march onward, to carry on his IRREVERSIBLE, IRREVOCABLE, spiritual journey into GOD, THRU, BY, WITH WHICH, and WHEREIN, HE WILL BE ENTWINED in all these dimensions of being. HE WILL TRULY KNOW THE WIDTH. THE HEIGHT. THE BREADTH. THE DEPTH, IN THE FULNESS, AND KNOWLEDGE, OF GOD, AND OF THE LOVE OF CHRIST. HE WILL BE MADE TO KNOW HIS INNER SELF, AS WELL AS HIS INNER MIND. AND ULTIMATELY, HIS MIND’S EYE WILL BE FULLY OPENED TO THE GLORY AND POWERS OF THE WORLDS OF BEING, NOW IN THIS TIME, AND OF THE WORLDS TO COME. THE SPIRIT OF GOD WILL QUICKEN HIM. AND HE WILL HAVE PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING, (Epistle to the Ephesians 3:18-21). ALL THESE COME FROM THE HOLY BIBLE.

THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE ABUNDANTLY
“…I AM come that they might have life and that they may have it more abundantly, 11 I AM the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for his sheep.” (Gospel Book of John 10:10b, 11).
THE RIGHT BLESSINGS: REFINEMENTS OF CULTURE THE BLESSINGS OF CIVILIZATION
It is called the best of both worlds. You have heard it. And heard it often. “God loves the poor.” In other words, He delights that there are so many poor, and He, the God of Providence, who owns all the gold and silver, all the cattle of a thousand hills, dearly loves the poor. In other words, God the Maker and Provider of all things good and wonderful, “so dearly loves the poor in their mire and muck and 165

poverty. In their confused existence” THIS IS THEIR IDEA. THE MANTRA OF, AND FOR, THE POOR IN MEN’S MINDS. This absurd self-defeating concept of the Eternal God makes of the God of all Providence and Abundance a scrooge. A miserable miser. CAN YOU SEE THAT THIS IS MOST ABSURD AND SILLY TO THINK ABOUT THE DIVINE PROVIDENCE AND BLESSINGS OF THE GREAT GOD? One of the principal reasons why Christ came, was to bring life to mankind, and that they may have it more abundantly. He would lay down the very way and principles by which, if they abide in them, they would have the true abundant life, NOW IN THIS TIME. To the blessed ones that did heed, listened, and did live accordingly, the Lord Jesus Christ pronounced: 28 “Then Peter began to say unto him, ‘Lo we have left all, and have followed thee. 29 And Jesus answered and said, ‘Verily I say unto you, There is

no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s. 30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life,”
(Gospel Books of Mark 10:28-30; Matthew19:27-29; Luke 18:28-30). 2 Chr 25:9 > MAN LIVE IN EXTREMES 166

> LIVE IN, and via, THE MIDDLE OF BALANCE and MODERATION > BELIEF AND PRACTICE. BELIEF BASED ON THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. WORDS WITH ZEALOUS DEEDS. THOUGHT AND ACTION.

2 “For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
Acts 21:20; 22:3; ch. 9:31; Gal. 1:14

3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves to the righteousness of God,” (Epistle to the Romans
10:2-3). FOR “GOD IS A SPIRIT AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH,’ (Gospel Book of John 3:24). > UNDERSTANDING THE WHY AND HOW OF THINGS. UNDERSTANDING WHY IS NOT ENOUGH. > WHY? > THEN FIND THE ANSWER TO THE FOLLOWING: > WHAT? > HOW? 167

FAITH ONCE DELIVERED TO THE SAINTS
3 “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints,” (Epistle of Jude verse 3).
Christ Himself Delivered the Tenets of the Faith and the Gospel of the Kingdom Before He Ascended to Heaven
2 “Until the day in which he was taken up, after that the Holy

Spirit had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had Mark 16:19; 1 Tim 3:16 chosen: 3 To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
Mark 16:14 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come

upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto both in Jerusalem, and
169

in Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth,” (Book of Acts 1:2. 3, 8).
3 “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the

common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you , and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the saints,” (Epistle of Jude verse 3).

THIS FAITH REVOLVES AROUND THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
> Of being born again into the Kingdom. > Of this literal spiritual rebirth from mortality to immortality as the goal into which every true believer and practitioner of the faith must ceaselessly aspire. > From terrestrial to celestial is God’s Divine design for every human being ever born, and ever died. And will live again. > From earthy, to heavenly, is God’s dream for the family of man. > From the dust to which man will return in death, to the resurrection of eternal life, is God’s Divine Vision when man was first made “in the image, and likeness of God,” of ELOHIYM. > That these called out, chosen, and elected Spirit-begotten members of the Church of the Living God will serve Him, and endure to the end.

WHAT SORT OF MEN AND WOMEN ARE CALLED OUT OF THIS WORLD TO BECOME PART OF THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED?
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men: and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 “For you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called: John7:48 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are, to bring to nought all things that are: Rom. 4:17; ch. 2:6 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence. Rom. 3:27 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: ver. 24 31 That according as it is written, ‘He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord,’ (First Epistle to the Corinthians 1: 25-31).

(Gospel Book of Mathhew 4:4:18-21). > John, the brother of James > Andrew, and Philip, > Bartholomew > Matthew, was a tax collector. > Thomas > James, of Alphaeus > Libbaeus Thaddaeus, called Jude. > Simon, the Canaanite > Judas Iscariot (who betrayed Christ), with skills in money transactions, (Gospel Book of Mark 4:14-19). Many of the twelve disciples were fishermen. Jesus himself, was a carpenter. Carpentry being the occupation of Joseph, a respected master carpenter, the husband of Mary, his mother. > Paul, formerly called Saul, was a Pharisee, He indicated he learned and practiced as a tentmaker to earn a living, while in his labors for the Gospel, (Book of Acts 18:1-3).

172

SO IN THE FIRST CENTURY CHURCH OF GOD AMONG THE MANY THAT WERE CONVERTED TO THE FAITH, WERE MEN AND WOMEN THAT WERE VERY COMMON, AND VERY ORDINARY, AS THE WORLD MEASURES THEM. THERE WERE BUT A FEW OF NOBLE BIRTH, HIGH RANK, OR STATUS. JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA IS ONE SUCH A VERY FEW. IT IS KNOWN HE WAS A TIN MERCHANT.

READ THEIR STORY:
Of the multitude of the people which heard the word proclaimed by the apostles that became believers. There were five thousand of them, (Book of Acts 4:1-21). More believers were added, multitudes both of men and women,” and a multitude came out also out of the cities roundabout unto Jerusalem. They brought their sick and afflicted, The apostles laid their hands on them, and they were healed, every one, (Book of Acts5:12-16; 6:1). 7 “And the word of God increased; and the number of disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith. ch. 12:24; Isa. 55:11 8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people, (Book of Acts 6:7-10). 44 And the next Sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God, (Book of Acts 13:44-45, 48-49). 173

> They came from all walks of life. They were working in all types and kinds of trades. Avocations, And occupations. A number practiced in the disciplines, and in the recognized professions, in those days. They were in the employ of business, and in the civil, and military, governments, of that time. A number were slaves, or servants, in private households of wealthy families, or powerful men of high rank, or in office, or in private business. Onesimus was once a slave of his master Philemon, before he became a Christian, (Epistle to Philemon vs. 1-25). THE SAME IS TRUE THROUGHOUT THE LAST TWENTY CENTURIES OF THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, EVEN AS THEIR STORY WAS HIDDEN, AND IGNORED, BY HISTORIANS. FOR THEY WERE NEVER PART OF THIS WORLD, EVEN AS THEY WERE, AND ARE, IN THE WORLD, (Gospel Book of John 17:14-16). IN THE WORLD OF TODAY, AS IT IS STRUCTURED, THE HUMAN ACTIVITIES REVOLVE AROUND: 1. IDEAS – The conceptualization of ideas. The writing of them. Printing of them In books, Scrolls, Magazines, Newsletters. Booklets. Other publications. The discussion of them In broadcast media. In forums. Conferences. In classrooms. In schools. The spreading and dissemination of them. Everyone who engages in them is entitled to compensation, remuneration, commission, salary, 174

or fee. They are paid in forms of money, or goods with equivalent money value. 2. SERVICES –The rendering of them, in all types and kinds. Using knowledge and information. By both unskilled, semi-skilled, and skilled practitioners. Involving all the activities for earning a living to insure self-sufficiency, and security from want and lack. 3. PRODUCTS. – The design. Fabrication. Manufacture. And promotions and marketing, of these products for the use, and consumption, of men. The profit or income earned from them could be very satisfactory. Sufficient. Substantial. Or large. The members of the Church of God, all over the world, in both the western and eastern hemisphere were called out by God the Father from all these spheres of human activity. Hence, they are engaged in gainful occupations. Trades. Vocations. Avocations, Crafts. Professions. Employment. Businesses, as small, or medium scale, entrepreneurs and proprietors. Any other legitimate and profitable activities to earn their living. The job description and titles to these activities are multitude. Modern 21st century civilization and technologies, scientific, computers, and digital, information has generated and created jobs. Trade and commerce offer many positions of gainful employment. Food production in all its variegated disciplines opened many job opportunities, whether they be skilled, or semi-skilled. In the field of Education, they can be found as teachers. All of these, as well as yet many unspecified others, the brethren of the church of the Living God are at work, today. 175

Organized promotions and marketing of the products for consumption, and housing, find them engaged as sales people, agents, or consultants, either in the field, or in the office doing executive and managerial tasks, and as independent contractors. Housing has opened gainful work as architects, builders, carpenters, garden designing, and interior designing. All these has made income-earning work, jobs, or profitable interaction with serious, busy people in the business of life and living, available and possible. They are enjoined to be quiet and be busy, diligent, and honest, lawabiding, in their dealings and interaction with the peoples of the world, with their fellowmen. They are enjoined to love their jobs and enjoy their work. The brotherhood, of the household of God, in dedicated labors of serving and doing in the midst of the world. In so doing, they fulfill the teaching and will of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Saviour, to become the salt of the earth, and the light of the world. “I EXHORT therefore, that first of all, supplications, prayers,

intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority: that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
Rom. 12:2; 2 Tim 1:9

4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to know and to come to the knowledge of the truth,” (First Epistle to Timothy 2:1-4).
Yes, everywhere in the world, they could be found: >>>>

176

They are Accountants. Janitors. Care givers. Teachers, in all levels. Farmers, Gardeners, Orchardists. Secretaries. Nurses. Clerks. Salesmen. Traders. Merchants. Consultants. Insurance and real estate agents. Truck and taxi drivers. Managers. Executives, Bankers. Lawyers. Laboratory technicians. Postal workers. Physicians. Scientists. Computer analysts. Computer programmers. Telephone operators. Foresters. Waiters. Chambermaids. Factory workers. Care givers. Barbers. Beauticians. Masseurs. Construction workers. Architects. Interior designers. Delivery man. And, yes, tax revenue collectors like Matthew, the disciple of Jesus. And fishermen, like Simon and Peter, like his brother Andrew, and the other fishermen with him that were first called by Jesus, the Christ of God.

GIFTS AND OFFICES OF SERVICE ORDAINED IN THE CHURCH OF GOD
> 4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. > 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. > 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. Eph 1:23 > 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

178

> 18 But now God hath seth the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. > 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? > 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
Rom 12;5; Eph. 1:23; 4;12

> 28 And God hath set some in the church, > first apostles, > secondarily prophets > thirdly teachers, > after that miracles, > Then gifts of healings; > helps; > governments > diversities of tongues. Eph. 4:11; 2:20;3:5 > 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all workers of miracles? > 30 Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues?
179

Do all interpret? > 31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way,” (First Epistle to the Corinthians 12:1-31).
LOVE IS THE MORE EXCELLENT WAY, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 13:1-13)..

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 1 Cor 12:7 13 Till we all come to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. Is. 28:9; ch.
1:22

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 2 Cor. 4:2; Heb. 3:9 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love,” (Epistle to the
Ephesians 4:11-16). SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE.

180

LIKE THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, THE GOOD NEWS CAME FIRST, AHEAD OF THE BAD

THERE WILL BE TRIALS, PERSECUTIONS, AND TRIBULATIONS
It is not a bed of roses. Fiery trials ahead. Persecution afoot. Tribulation at the corner of the road. >>>>

“Remember the word that I said unto you. The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; ...” (Gospel Book of 15:20a). 33 “These things have I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world,” (Gospel Book of John 16:33).
12 “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you,” (First Epistle of Peter 4:12). . 1 Cor.3:13 9 “Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world,” (First Epistle of Peter 5:9).

THE GOOD NEWS INSIDE OF THE BAD NEWS

181

“Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God, (Book of Acts 14:22). 13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it,” (First Epistle to the Corinthians 10:13). 19 “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. 20 He keepeth all his bones. Not one of them is broken,” (Book of Psalms 34:19-20). 7 “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ,” (First Epistle of Peter 1:7).

Chapter Ten

THE ROLE OF ANGELS ON THE CHURCH OF GOD
14 “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?,” (Epistle
to the Hebrews1:14). Ps. 103:2; Mat. 18:1; Mat. 18:10

THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN THE HEAVENLY HOSTS MINISTERING ANGELS TO THE HEIRS OF SALVATION ANGELS OF LIGHT Mankind throughout the ages had it written in their chronicles of their direct experiences with invisible beings that ministered help to those in times of most crucial need.

183

Little babies were kept alive in the rubble of landslides. Crushed buildings laid low by massive earthquakes, or ruined by devastating floods. Little children survived airplane crashes. These are amazing proofs of invisible angels responsible to rescue these helpless babies and children. God be praised! For He sent those angels of heaven to do these astonishing acts of mercy and deliverance for God’s jewels in His creation. THE ANGELS ARE GUARDIAN ANGELS OF MORTALS, FLESH AND BLOOD, BORN OF WOMEN They are under instructions to watch over the entire human family, lest they prematurely extinguish, self-destruct, and eliminate themselves. Unbeknownst to these proud flesh and blood mortals, the angels of heaven are there on God’s instructions, to prevent irreversible human destruction by selfwilled, crazed leaders of peoples and nations. They are invisible and strong spirits. They only show themselves briefly, if necessary, under very necessary circumstances. With their mission done, they again disappear. Accounts in the Scriptures show that they appear when events are in the extreme and fatal for mortals. The background helper who dare appear as human beings. They do the necessary. And then go…..

THE ANGELS APPEARED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT ACCOUNTS. 184

> An angel, the archangel Gabriel, appeared to Zecharias to announce to him the conception in Elizabeth, his wife, and coming birth of his son, the prophet John the Baptist, who will be the voice in the wilderness to pave the way, and proclaim the birth and coming of Jesus, the Son of man, and son of God, in the flesh, who will be called Emmanuel (God with us), (Gospel Book of Luke 1:11-19; 76-80). > The archangel Gabriel was sent from God anew, six months later, unto the city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin named Mary, To announce to her that she will conceive in her womb, and bring forth a son, and the child’s name will be called ‘JESUS’. The child will grow up to be great, and shall be called the Son of the highest. She was told that the Holy Spirit, the power of the Highest, shall come upon her. That the Holy Spirit will overshadow her. And Jesus shall be born of her, who shall be called the Son of God, > The angel of the Lord came upon the shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. The angel announced to them” 10 “Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy,

which shall be, to all people, 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” (Gospel Book of
Luke 2:8-11), Gen. 12;3; Mat. 28:19; Mark 1:15 > In that same historic time,: 13 “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Gen. 26:12 14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men. ch. 28:12 15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, ‘Let us now go even 185

unto Bethlehem, and see this which the Lord hath made known unto us,
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger,” (Gospel Book of Luke 2:8-16). > Angels came to minister to Jesus after his victorious spiritual battle, right after he had fasted forty days and forty nights, against Satan the devil, (Gospel Book of Matthew 4:1-10, 11). > An angel from heaven appeared to strengthen Jesus in his moment of agonizing prayer, knowing He was going to face suffering and death for the sins, and the redemption of all mankind, (Gospel Book of Luke 22:43). > The angel of the Lord opened the unlocked prison doors to let the imprisoned apostle Peter out, (Book of Acts 12: 1-6, 7, 9-11). > The angel of God was there to save the apostle Paul in the tempest-tossed ship in the stormy ocean near the island of Crete, (Book of Acts 27:23)._ > The angel showed in vision the final, last end time events, and city of God to the beloved apostle John, in exile, in the island of Patmos, (Book of Revelation 22: 1-8). ALL THESE ACCOUNTS DEMONSTRATE AND CLEARLY SHOW TO THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, EVEN TO THE REST OF THE WORLD, THAT ANGELS ARE MINISTERING SPIRITS, SERVANTS OF THE GOD OF HEAVEN. THEY ARE HIS MESSENGERS SENT FROM TIME TO TIME TO PERFORM AND FULFILL A SPECIFIC IMPORTANT MISSION, OR TASK. TO DELIVER A MESSAGE FR0M THE LORD GOD MOST HIGH. AND IN 186

OTHER TIMES TO ASSIST AND HELP. THEN, AFTER EACH MISSION DONE, THEY DISAPPEAR. AND RETURN TO HEAVEN, AND REPORT BACK TO GOD. > IN SODOM AND GOMORRAH, TWO ANGELS APPEARED TO LOT, IN HUMAN FORM, TO SAVE LOT AND HIS FAMILY, BEFORE THEY WERE TO DESTROY THE SINFILLED TWIN CITIES WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, AND THIS THEY DID. (Book of Genesis). THEY ARE NOT TO BE COMMUNICATED TO, AS THE ATTEMPTS ARE BEING MADE BY SOME. NOT TO BE PRAYED TO. NOT TO BE WORSHIPPED. WORSHIP OF ANGELS IS ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN BY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. SO IT IS WRITTEN. THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD SO BELIEVE.

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
LUCIFER, THE FORMER LIGHTBRINGER AND THE FALLEN ANGELS TURNED INTO SATAN THE DEVIL AND MALIGNANT DEMONS AND WICKED SPIRITS

ALIENS IN YOUR MIDST
Are there aliens among human beings? What about the UFOs? 187

Are they the “watchers” from a far away planet with big round eyes and strange looking bodies as the Hollywood 3D movies on big screen, celluloid, DVDs, and illustrators, and painters, depict them? What about the claimed sightings? Of UFOs flying at incredible speeds with strange lights, as testified to by increasing numbers? Including photographs taken by their cellphone cameras? NEVER DABBLE OR TRAFFIC WITH DEMONS AND EVIL, WICKED SPIRITS. MALIGNANT

NEVER, NEVER, EVER TRAFFIC OR DABBLE WITH MALIGNANT DEMONS, EVIL WICKED SPIRITS KNOWLEDGE, NEITHER DOCTRINES OF DEVILS. NEVER TOUCH OCCULT MATTERS AND TEACHINGS. THEY ARE OPENINGS AND LINKS TO THESE EVIL SPIRITS WHICH ARE SEEKING FOR YOU TO DO, SO THEY ENTER YOU. POSSESS YOU. TAKEOVER YOUR MIND, LITERALLY. THE DEVIL IS LIKE A ROARING LION EVER SEEKING, 24 HOURS A DAY, BEING IMMORTAL, NON-STOP, SEEKING WHOM IT MAY DEVOUR, 8 “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Whom resist, stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 188

10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you,” (First Epistle 5:8-10).

SUPERNATURAL BEINGS?
People wonder if Satan the devil, and his fallen angel legions now malignant demons and wicked spirits, are supernatural beings? Yes, they are. That is extremely bad news. Very bad for mortals, flesh and blood, born of women. Pitted against wicked perverted, twisted, cruel, merciless devils, and similarly, malignant demons wicked, evil spirit, they are helpless, it appears. WHERE COULD WEAK HUMAN BEINGS TURN TO FOR HELP THEN? They were, in their former estate and nature as created by the Eternal Creator God, angels of heaven, supernatural spirit beings. Turned into demons thru rebellion against the GOD OF HEAVEN, and cast down to the earth, they are roaming around, twisted, perverted supernatural spirit beings. Invisible to the naked eye. Their glorious spirit power gone, they are manifesting to human beings as dim pockets and balls of dim light. BEWARE OF THEM.

189

THEY SHOW THEMSELVES AS UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS. UFOS.
They manifest in black magic. hypnotism. Lucifer worship. satan worship. sacrifice of babies. cannibalism. they are manifested in palmistry. fortune telling. geomancy. voodoo. sex orgies. illegal drugs orgies. black Sabbath worship. IN PARANORMAL ENGAGEMENTS. WITCH DOCTORS. soothsayers and wizards that peep. Witches. Fortune tellers. Palmistry practitioners. THEY MANIFEST IN HIGHER LEVELS OF HUMAN ACTIVITY. INFLUENCING HUMAN LEADERS. CRAZED DICTATORS (HITLER OPENLY CITED AND ACKNOWLEDGED AS SUCH ONE). MAD MONARCHS. mad generals. SCIENTISTS WHO BECOME POSSESSED CLAIMING DIVINITY AND GOD-LIKE POWERS. INVENTING BIOLOGICAL, CHEMICAL, NUCLEAR, WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. POSSESSED RELIGIOUS LEADERS. Appropriating spiritual titles and offices, and authority that belong only to god. FALSE PROPHETS. FALSE APOSTLES. false messiahs and false christs. Religious ministers APPEARING AS ANGELS OF LIGHT. using ungodly signs and wonders deceiving millions and millions to follow.

Chapter Eleven

THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL
16 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evll, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest 2:16thereof thou shalt surely die,” (Book of Genesis 2:16-17).
WHAT IS THE GOOD IN THE KNOWLEDGE?
Thus, the good news came first. In God’s order of the acts, this is the way He has scripted the story of human affairs. On the world’s stage, as Shakespeare would have it, so to speak. Over time, the good intermingled with the evil. It was like on a weighing scale at the beginning. 192

They were at balance, on day 1. Equal in weight it seems, at the commencement. In the process of time, the aggregation of evil acts made the side of evil heavier. And every evil act produced a heavier weight of consequences for doing evil. In the final accounting, massive evil weighed down mankind on the weighing scale. Massive evil, made violence and wickedness soaked mankind through, and thru. It led to the destruction of the human race. God made the judgment in that day, (Book of Genesis 6:5-6,11-13, 17-24). In the Great Flood in Noah’s day, the punishment for total evil in the human family was complete extinction in the floodwaters that enveloped the whole earth. Except for Noah and his family. All eight of them lived through the Flood, kept alive in Noah’s Ark. Because Noah walked with God. He was not a partaker of the evil in the knowledge of good and evil. He lived in the righteousness of the good, in the same knowledge of good and evil. The good news was the shining part of his life, (Book of Genesis 6:8-9).

WHAT IS THE EVIL IN THE KNOWLEDGE?
At the end of the day, the evil in the knowledge, came after the good, in that order. Look in the word dictionary. Look in any thesaurus. 193

Words that pertain to the good, are few, yet weighty. Light, for example. It shines on all. It brightens all the darkness, and dissipates, evil works, so to speak. Good health in a healthy person makes that person clean and clear, so to speak. There are no infectious diseases or weakness in his body system. There are no complications he suffers from. He is not cluttered in his thoughts and in his ways, and his life is simplified in goodness and righteousness, and in the good on the scale. > Confusion and proliferation of garbage in darkness. Dirt and filth spreads around uncontrolled, in the evil side on the scale: In the evil side of the scale, you see all the multiplying complications., and endless attempts to find solutions You witness the myriad problems as a result of the evil things in the evil side of the scale of knowledge of good and evil. And, thus, it gets murkier and heavier. Words that pertain to the evil, bad, and wrong, are many. It simply is too much to cope with by flesh and blood mortals. It renders them unable to cope. The consequences are so many. The results in diseases are so many.

194

The consequences in crimes are so mind boggling. For they are so many. They are self-cloning, and multiplying like bacteria and germs. Infectious diseases multiply and spread rapidly in the human body system. A two volume encyclopedia is required to catalogue diseases, and crimes, separately: Volume 1- Diseases and Complications Volume 2- Crimes and Consequences Such is the nature and composition of evil.

THE POWER OF DECEPTION
The old serpent in the Garden of Eden employed the power of deception to draw Eve, the mother of all living, to partake of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That proved to be the devil’s main weapon to bring evil, and its myriad fruits, into the human family, and evil in the world Satan the devil has crafted for man to be entangled in.

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

Chapter Twelve

THE TREE OF LIFE
“And the LORD God said, ‘Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil, and now lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever, 24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.” (Book of Genesis 3:22, 24).
THE MYSTERY OF THE TREE OF LIFE
Why did God use the Tree as a symbol? The LORD God of the Old Testament chose to use the TREE as a symbol. Having created the tree, and designed it to be a repository and demonstration of the most astonishing biological systems and principles, all of life, all analogous and perfect parallel to the human body and being, which was wonderfully and fearfully made. From 196

all the way down to the lowest root, each and every rootlet, fiber, and strand. This makes the tree able to absorb all the biological sustenance of nutrients from the very earth, the very ground in which it is standing. And the tree grows. From a seed, that buds and grows. To a sapling. A seedling. As the human being, from a sperm, to an embryo. They both grow. With perfectly parallel principles. The trunk and the branches, are like the human body and the legs and arms! The tree and the human being receive nourishment from the earth, water, and the air, and energy from the sun, and the light energy of the same sun, and from the transforming blessing of the dew that falls from heaven at night. All micro and macro principles operate in perfect parallel. Living cells dwell both in the tree and in the human body. The tree grows, and stands on the same ground. Unless transplanted, or replanted to some other places. The human being, grows and lives on the same earth. Not in some other planet. Even as he moves around, he is gravity-bound, living, standing, so to speak, on the same terrestrial ground, same terra firma. So God has used the TREE. 197

WHAT IS THE LIFE IN THE TREE OF LIFE?
Christ, some four thousand years later, revealed in person, to His disciples, all mortals, flesh and blood, born of women, that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

6 “Jesus saith unto him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me,” (Gospel Book of
John14:6). YES, >>>> JESUS, THE CHRIST OF GOD, IS THE LIFE IN THE TREE OF LIFE! And so it is that your life in its entirety, must begin, be lived, and end, and ultimately be fulfilled in Christ. {Go to the Epilogue for the exposition on LIFE}.

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

EPILOGUE
Volume One

Mystery of the Church of the Living God
Older than time when it began, before the foundation of the world, are the spiritual values revealed from GOD in this Sacred Golden Scroll Series.

LOVE – LIGHT –LIFE – MERCY – FAITH – TRUTH – JUSTICE – VISION
LOVE > LOVE Love defining the GOD of Creation is also the very foundation of His making the whole vast expanding universe, IN THE BEGINNING, (Book of Genesis 1:1). God is Love, (First Epistle of John 4:8). The demonstrated manifestation of awesome order and design, and the immense beauty in all the heavenly bodies, and especially, planet Earth, beheld thru the sharpest space 199

telescopes of the 21st century reflects the divine love behind their creation. They are there made for the future immortal children of God the Father whom God loves. 14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of

God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’ 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the chidren of God. Job 32:8 Eccl 3:21; 12:7. Zech 12:1 17 And if children, then heirs, heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ, if so be that we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified together. 18 For I reckon thst the sufferings of this present are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
2 Cor 4:17; 1 Pet 1:6

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.,”
(Epistle to the Romans 8:14-19). 2 Pet 3:13 LOVE among mortals comes by nature in two: From the Greek word: eros, physical love… and the other, philia, derived from philadelphia.…brotherly love. Both of these are temporal. > Eros is mostly physical romantic love, as understood in the world. Partways, this often form the basis for the strong bonding between two persons with a long maturation. This is essential in the raising of children, and the continuation of the human family, and its units, and extensions, or human species to evolutionists and scientists. The example of parents who have partnered in balance and 200

constancy is essential to the growing of children and make them to thrive emotionally and psychologically. The deprivation of human families of this eros produces dysfunctional families. This is endemic in today’s modern societies. Two thirds of every marriage that ends in bitter divorce could be traced to the death of eros in marriages.

> Philia is brotherly love. The filial love between parents and their
children. The love between friends. Love of neighbor. Love of one’s kin’s and folks. The empirical self. The love of the bloodline and family tree. Love of country. The love and caring about something or someone else other than you is ennobling. This form and kind of intense love bears transcendent fruit in you. This philia grows into altruism. A selfless emotion of mature love that ennobles human character. When love attains the height of sweeping selflessness, of devotion, stedfast commitment and unfailing care for others’ welfare and happiness than you do your own. This, ultimately. becomes the shining cornerstone in the building of the truly civilized community and society of loving and caring men, and of civilization itself. Without this, all civilization goes thru the historic cycle of enthusiastic commencement, with enlightenment, growth, sustained building, then familiarity and boredom, then degeneration, immorality, apathy, cynicism, despair, and decay, finally >>> collapse, quite rapidly.

> The love of, for, and from, God is agape. It is divine, spiritual
love, manifested in mortals, flesh and blood, born of women, that is deathless. Boundless. Infinite. Forever. Everlasting. It is most wonderful. Who can describe its glorious splendour? Only those that 201

are filled and living with agape, in their hearts, minds, whole being, understanding, can. > LIGHT > God is light, (First Epistle of John 1:5). This is the mother of all doctrines. The very doctrine from which all spiritual doctrines emanate. Even as God dwells in unapproachable light. 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. ch 3:33; John 1:9 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness,

we lie, and do not the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin,” (First Epistle of John 1:5-7). 1 Cor 6:11; Eph 1:7;
Heb 9:14 “You are the light of the world,” (Gospel Book of Matthew 5:14). 35 “Then Jesus said unto them, “Yet a little while is the light with

you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not where he goeth.
ch 1:9

36 While ye have the light, believe in the light, that ye may be children of light.’ These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them,” (Gospel Book of John 12:35-36).

> CHRIST IS LIFE

“ I AM the resurrection and the LIFE: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (Gospel Book of John
11:25).

“I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME, John 14:5) Heb
9:8; ch. 8:32 THE LORD JESUS CHRIST REVEALED HE IS LIFE PERSONIFIED. HE DEMONSTRATED HOW IT IS TO BE LIFE IN WORD, IN THOUGHT, IN SPIRIT, IN DEED, AND IN ACTION. TO BE SO, ONE MUST LOVE. THINK LOVE. SPEAK LOVE. EAT LOVE. DRINK LOVE. YOUR WHOLE LIFE, MIND, HEART, ENTIRE BEING, MUST REVOLVE, VIBRATE, SPIN IN HARMONIOUS FREQUENCY, ABOUT LOVE. THE LOVE OF GOD WHO IS LOVE. THIS SACRED GOLDEN SCROLL Series XCI NOW REVEALS FROM GOD.

28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, ‘For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
203

38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. Eph. 1:21 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord,”
(Epistle to the Romans 8:28-39). The secret of that quickening life is disclosed by Jesus, the Christ of God. Listen, disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ: 12 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also: and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto my Father. Mat 21:21 Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Mat 7:7, 21. 22 14 If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. 15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. verses 21. 23. commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever. 17 Even the Spirit of truth: whom the world can not receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him; but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and he shall be in you. him; 18 I will not leave you comfortless. I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me, because I live; ye shall live also. ch 16:16 20 At that day, ye shall know that I am in my Father, and I in you. ch 10:38 21 He that hath my commandments: and keepeth them, he it is

that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my
204

Father, and I will love him, and I will manifest myself to him.
1 John 2:5; 5:3 22 And Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? Luke 6:16 23 And Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he

will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him,” (Gospel Book
14:12of John 14:12-23). 1 John 2:24

THINK: IF THE GODHEAD DWELLS IN YOU, WHAT CAN YOU NOT DO? THE MOST POWERFUL SET OF SACRED SCRIPTURES IN THE HOLY BIBLE ARE NOW SET IN PRINT FOR YOU. READ AND MASTER THEM IN YOUR WHOLE MIND AND BEING. > MERCY Mercy is the hallmark of the divine nature and character of the Most High God. His mercy endures forever. From everlasting to all everlasting, to all of them that fear Him. (Book of Psalms 103:17). As the heaven is high above the earth is God’s mercy, (Book of Psalms 103:11; 145:8). The Scriptures is full of the revelation of God’s enduring mercy, (Books of First Chronicles 16:34; Ezra 3:11; Psalms 100:1; 107:1; 118:1; 136:1; to the end – prophet Jeremiah 33:1). > JUSTICE 205

JUSTICE was missing and ignored in the religion of the Jews in the days of Jesus, the Son of man, while he was on earth among the Jews. For while the religious leaders, the scribes and the Pharisees, were most meticulous and strict on the tenets of the codified Law, and in their oppressive, UNFORGIVING additions to their interpretations of it, and the keeping of them, justice was missing. In this particular specific instance: about STRICT TITHING. The absolute demand and collection, or payment to the utmost farthing, of it. Justice went missing, it was banished out, and along with mercy, and faith. These three were blanked out. By their very acts, the letter of the Law killed. Justice, mercy, and faith would have made it give life. The Lord Jesus Christ rebuked them, (Gospel Books of Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42). They ended up full of hypocrisy, and were likened to whitened sepulchers, (Gospel Books of Matthew 23:27; hypocrites – ch 15:7; 16:23; Mark 7:6; Luke 12:56). JUSTICE defined is uprightness. Righteousness exercised in the treatment of others, particularly by people of high rank and men in authority, with the power of command. And of those given the opportunity to teach, even to rule others. It begins with the father of his own household: his wife, and children. He must be just whenever the occasion arises and justice is the need of the moment. “Keep the way of the LORD, to do justice.” (Book of Genesis 18:19). IT CAN ONLY TRULY BE MADE POSSIBLE IF THE WAY OF GOD IS MADE APPLICABLE.

“Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face. 15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance. Ps
98:6 206

16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted. 17 For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted. 18 For the LORD is our defense; and the Holy One of Israel is our king, (Book Psalms 89:14-18).
> FAITH Faith as defined, is “The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”, (Epistle to the Hebrews11:1). Material, physical substance is the heart and essence of every organic matter. Spiritual substance is the inmost essence, profoundest meaning, and deepest purpose, of every spiritual value. This directly refers to what man, flesh and blood, born of woman, truly believes in his heart of hearts, so to speak. “Without faith,” the Scriptures assert, “it is impossible to please God,” (Epistle to the Hebrews 11:6). The presence of faith is the proof of the presence and existence of the world of the invisible. Things not seen by the naked eye. Unremitting, unwavering faith makes possible the impossible. > “ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU,” (Gospel Books of Matthew 7:7-8; 21:22; Luke 11:9). > > ASK IN PRAYER, WITH SUPPLICATIONS, (Book of Acts 11:4; Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 4:6). AND BOLDNESS, (Epistle to the Hebrews 4:16). > “YOU MUST ASK IN UNWAVERING BELIEF. 207

DOUBT NEGATES, EVEN BLOCKS, THE ANSWER YOU ASK FOR. (Gospel Book of Matthew 21:21). > ASK GOD FOR THE VERY FAITH BY WHICH YOU CAN BELIEVE THESE THINGS. ASK TO BE GRANTED THE FAITH IN, AND OF CHRIST TO COME INTO YOUR HEART AND MIND TO BELIEVE THAT WHAT YOU ASK FROM GOD WILL BE GRANTED, OR GIVEN. > THE ORIGINAL APOSTLES ASKED THE LORD JESUS CHRIST FOR HIM TO INCREASE THEIR FAITH. SO MUST YOU. HERE IS THE PRINCIPLE ON FAITH TO FOLLOW: ASK FOR THE FAITH OF, AND IN. CHRIST TO BE IN YOU. HERE, THE LOVING, KIND, ALL MERCIFUL GOD OF CREATION AND DIVINE PROVIDENCE REVEALS THE AMAZING WAY TO RECEIVE SUPPLY FOR, AND OF, ALL THE GOOD THINGS THAT YOU NEED. THIS IS THE WAY TO SUCCEED! RECEIVE THIS WITH ALL THANKFULNESS AND GLADNESS. YOUR SECRET KEY TO ABUNDANCE AND SUCCESS IS NOW IN YOUR HANDS. BEING BLESSED WITH THE REALIZATION AND MANIFESTATION IN YOUR LIFE ---- DEPENDS ON YOU! > TRUTH

208

“Sanctify them through thy word. Thy word is truth,”(Gospel Book of John 17:17). The WORD OF GOD sets apart the members of the Body of Christ. It enables them by revelation, and understanding given by Christ, thru the Holy Spirit, of THE WORD to live BY THE SACRED WORD. They LIVE, thereby, BY EVERY WORD THAT COMES OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD. Doing so, separates them apart from the rest of the carnal, secular world of man in the land of the living who continue to be the living walking dead., (Epistles to the Ephesians 2:1, 5; Colossians 2:13). All these in the world live by, and do their own thing. Guided by their man-made persuasions and convictions. Abetted by the invisible prince of the power of the air: Satan the devil, and his legions of demons and wicked spirits, IN SOME PARTS ACKNOWLEDGING GOD, YET REFUSE TO LIVE BY EVERY WORD. IN SOME PARTS, GOD IS DENIED. AND SO REFUSE TO LIVE BY THE WORD. > VISION Without vision, the people perish, (Book of Proverbs 29:18). It is vision, particularly spiritual vision, that impels individuals, and people, to persevering action with unremitting faith. To carry on keeping on against all difficult and impossible odds. To ever continue to overcome till success is attained. SPIRITUAL VISION COMES FROM GOD. The patriarch Abraham had living, unremitting faith, with the profoundest vision. They were the twin underpinnings of his life. 209

He believed the LORD God, and believed absolutely. Whatever the LORD God told him to do, he went on to obey the LORD God’s instructions, even to sacrifice his only son, by his wife Sarah, Isaac, (Book of Genesis 22:1-18). He was called God’s Friend, a most unique honor not granted by the LORD God to any other mortal, (Book of the Second Chronicles 20:7; Epistle of James 2:23). He received not the promise while he lived, YET HE looked beyond, with unwavering, clearest vision, and living faith, to the city afar off, to the city not made with hands, whose Builder and Maker is God!, (Epistle to the Hebrews 11:8-10). Ch 12:22; Rev 21:10 ABRAHAM looked beyond his day and time, into the new world to come. Even farther than the moment of the long awaited return of the Lord Jesus Christ in the end of days. Beyond the death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, the firstborn from the dead, (He died, gave up the spirit – Gospel Books of Matthew 27:50; HE IS RISEN – Matthew 8:6; 27:53; Mark 16:6). Beyond into the demise of wicked human civilization. The end of the world, (Gospel Book of Matthew 24:2). Watched in awe at the First Resurrection of the firstfruits, in which he would be one, amongst, (Book of Revelation 20:6). That they will rise first. And saw in vision those very elect of the saints left alive transformed from mortal to immortal in the 210

twinkling of of an eye, (First Epistle to the Corinthians 15:51-54; Firs Epistle to the Thessalonians 4:14-16). He saw as they rose into the air to meet the returning Great God and Saviour. (First Epistle to the Thessalonians 4:17). He envisioned them descend and set their foot on the Mount of Olives following the Divine Messiah, to commence the government and rule of the Kingdom of God on Earth, (Book of the prophets Zechariah 14:1-5; 9; Isaiah 2:2-4; Micah 4:1-3; Revelation 5:10) Jer. 20:5; Zech. 8:21; Luke 24:47; Ps. 46:9; Ps. 72:3, 7 Lingered awhile to the commencement of the Millennium. The rebuilding of the whole earth into a worldwide Garden of Eden. And paused through the wonderful Millennial Utopia, (Book of the prophet Isaiah 11:6; 65:21-25). Saw it all through the Second Resurrection of all those that ever lived, and ever died, (Book of Revelation 20:12-13). Through the 100-Year Judgment Period, (Book of the prophet Isaiah 65:20). And the greatest celebration in all history: The Wedding of Christ with His Bride, the Church of God! (Book of Revelation 19:7-9). On beyond…. >>>> into the glorious City of God, in the New Heaven and the New Earth. In to that time when he will be among the foremost among the resurrected, immortal sons, the children of God, under the Lord Jesus Christ, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, in the Divine Family, and the Government, of the Kingdom of God, (Book of Revelation chapter 21-22). 211

Mystery of the LIVING GOD – Part 1

Part 11

BODY OF BELIEFS AND DOCTRINES OF THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, PILLAR AND BULWARK OF THE TRUTH
“But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth,”
(First Epistle to Timothy 3:15)

THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH OF GOD WILLS FOR THEM TO LIVE BY THESE REVEALED SPIRITUAL VALUES Walk ye in them,,, that you, and your children, may live,

213

TO THE CHURCH OF GOD IN THE WILDERNESS:
“NOW therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you. Lev 19:37 2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. 5 Behold I have taught you statutes and judgments, as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. 6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear of these statutes, and say, “Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.” Job 28:26; Ps. 19:7 7 For what nation is there so great who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? 2 Sam 7:23 8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? 9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy son’s sons; Prov 4:23 10 Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, ‘Gather me the people

together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.
214

12 And the LORD spake unto you...
13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. Ch 9:9; Ex 34:28

14 And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye should do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it,” (Book of Deuteronomy 4:1-14).

PARAPHRASE: TO THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH OF GOD
“NOW therefore hearken, O Church of the Living God, unto the statutes and judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that you may live, and go in and possess your spiritual inheritance which the LORD God of your fathers gives you. Lev 19:37 2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish aught from it, that you may keep the commandments of perfect love of the LORD God which I command you. 5 Behold I have taught you spiritual statutes and spiritual judgments, as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should do so in the Way of life, of faith, whither you go to walk on all the days of your life in the flesh… 6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, and peoples of the earth, which shall hear of these spiritual statutes, and say, Surely, this church of the Living God is made great, an assembly, a congregation of the saints, who are made wise and understanding people by the Lord God. Job 28:26; Ps. 19:7 215

7 For what church is there so great who has God so near unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? 2 Sam 7:23 8 And what church is there so great, that has spiritual statutes and spiritual judgments so righteous as all this law of perfect love, which I set before you this day? 9 Only take heed to yourself, and keep your soul diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life: but teach them your sons, and your son’s sons; Prov 4:23 10 Specially the day that you stood before the Lord God when you were baptized, and made your spiritual covenant with the Lord God, and His Christ, His beloved Son the Lord Jesus Christ, when the LORD said unto me, ‘Gather me the members of the church, the saints in assemblies and in congregations of worship services together, and I will make them hear My Words, that they may learn to fear Me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children. 12 And the LORD spake unto you... 13 And he declared unto you His Spiritual Covenant, which He commanded you to perform, even Ten Commandments of Love; and He wrote them upon two spiritual tables in your heart and mind. ch 9:9; Ex 34:28 14 And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you spiritual Statutes and spiritual Judgments, that you should do them, in this your life of the faith once delivered to the saints,, whither you go over to possess your spiritual inheritance,” (IN PARAPHRASE OF THE Book of Deuteronomy 4:1-14).

THESE ARE THE TEN SPIRITUAL VALUES.

216

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE SPIRITUAL VALUES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS REVOLVING AROUND PERFECT SPIRITUAL LOVE BOUND IN RADIANT AGAPE AS WELL AS EMANATING FROM IT
“These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth,” (Book of Deuteronomy
12:1; 4:1-10; 6:1-3; 11:18-22).

TO THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH OF GOD
“Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, just, and good,” (Epistle to the Romans 7:12).

THE WISEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED, SPOKE FOR ALL MANKIND FOR ALL TIMES:
13 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man, (Book
of Ecclesiastes 12:13). Deut.10:12

THE GREAT APOSTLE OF THE FAITH AND HIGH PRIEST OF THE CHRISTIAN PROFESSSION, OF THE ORDER OF MELCHISEDEC,

SPOKE:
217

“If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them,” (Gospel Book
of John13:17).

TWO FOREMOST SERVANTS OF GOD IN ALL HISTORY TO EMULATE
ENOCH walked with God, (Book of Genesis 5:22-24). He did not see death. ‘He was not, and God took him.’ He died in his sleep, and was not conscious when he died. after 365 years. “He was translated, that he should not see death,” {See Elijah: 2 Ki 2:1112; Heb. 11:5}. In the prophet Elijah’s case, at the latter point, while alive, He was taken up into the atmosphere, the first heaven, on a chariot, and carried back to earth. To terra firma, so to speak. Like Moses, who went to die in an undisclosed place, else the people will go and deify his bones. Make a religious icon out of it. Or worship his bones, (Book of Deuteronomy 32:49-50; 34:5-7; Num 27:27;12-14). God did not allow such things. And so in the same manner and principle was Enoch. NOAH walked with God, (Book of Genesis 6:9). Noah and his family, eight of them altogether, lived thru the Great Flood that drowned all living human beings, in their tens of billions in their day, when it came upon the whole earth. Because the righteous Noah “WALKED WITH GOD!” YOU CAN!

218

THE CHURCH OF GOD, RECIPIENT AND HOLDERS, ALBEIT HEIRS, OF ALL THESE PRICELESS KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORIOUS TRUTH, AND THE REVELATION OF THE MYSTERY OF SALVATION, ARE BIDDEN, AND HELD, RESPONSIBLE TO, AND MUST, WALK WITH GOD.

Take heed, brethren, what the Spirit says to the churches. Listen, World of mortals…

PASS THIS – ‘’SACRED GOLDEN SCROLL SERIES XCI’’ - ON
This publication is full of Divine Light. This Light can not be placed under a bushel. It must not be held as an exclusive secret mystical mystery. Neither must it be kept under lock and key. Nor insulated in a mysterious box. It must never be covered under. It must be freely allowed to beam out and shine profusely for the blessing of all the peoples. Every tribe. Every clan. All the families. Men. Women. Children. The old. And the young. Citizens. Countries. Even the Monarchs. Emperors. Kings. Presidents. Prime Ministers. Sultans. Chief Elders. Tribal Elders. Village Chiefs. All in the Eastern Hemisphere, (Isaiah 60:1). . Before we go any further, you must FIRST, be blessed with the priceless gift of a great wonderful secret; THE SECRET 220

OF THE AGES. Aeons, Billions, countless Millennia, years old wonderful secret.

The Secret of Everlasting Success Allow us to pass it on to you. Christ Jesus, The Son of GOD, have one unremitting MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION. Read it. JESUS SAID UNTO THEM: “MY MEAT IS TO DO THE WILL OF HIM THAT SENT ME, AND TO FINISH HIS WORK,” (John 4:34). To DO the WILL, and to FINISH THE WORK of His Father, GOD THE FATHER, absolutely, totally, without any microiota of doubt, was His everlasting obsession. It was the raison d’etre, the rationale, the locus and focus of His Mind, It was the fixed reference point. It was the very lever, the innermost motivation and deepseated drive, of His presence on earth. The driving force of His manifestation on earth. The back of His mind, mental force on terrestrial ground, the heavenly correspondence and connection of His mortal being, in the flesh for 33 1/2 years. He was totally committed, completely absorbed, to finish His Father's Work, To His last seconds of His dying breath, His consciousness was on God’s Work. He had a job to do… And that, HE DID! 221

When that Phase of God's Work for which purpose He was sent to earth and manifest in mortal, human, flesh and blood, form was over, He cried on the upright crude stake, at the very exact moment before He literally died, He said on that wooden stake, “IT IS FINISHED” (John 19:30). Has anybody ever really understood the immensity, the unfathomable depth of that moment of total sacrifice of the Son of God for the forgiveness of all the sins of all mankind? Of the total, collective SIN of everyone who was ever born, lived, died, and those presently alive, which He bore and took upon Himself on that crucifixion?. Has anyone ever shared the agony and pain when He was pierced by a Roman soldier’s spear, and given bitter vinegar to wet His thirsting lips? When He looked up into Heaven, and exclaimed, as it were, as He had prayed with great agony earlier with His disciples: “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless, not MY WILL, BUT THINE BE DONE,”(Luke 22:42). When He willingly shed His precious Blood, THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB OF GOD, for the redemption from the penalty of death for sin hanging over ALL mankind? Has anybody thought of God the Father’s unscalable sorrow as He witnessed from Heaven the unspeakable brutal tortures inflicted by good-for-nothing picky, petty, power-crazed, puny mortals, clumps of clay, those “whitened sepulchres”, and ultimately, the actual, literal death of the incarnated into human flesh other member of the GODHEAD? In grief, God the Father could just have pulled out the Holy Spirit of power holding the entire created universe together. It would have been , like a blink on the screen, that the visible, physical, material universe could have disappeared! Faster than the twinkling of an eye, all the physical, material creation, visible and invisible, could just have evaporated. 222

The LORD was absolutely certain He had done that appointed job. THIS IS THE GREATEST SUCCESS STORY FOR ALL TIME! He succeeded by His total willingness to obey God the Father. His total yieldedness to suffer for the sake of the human race that the Most High God created by Him, thru the Holy Spirit. His total submission to go through the unbearable pain that tore into His deepest Being. He willingly yielded in the agony of that one moment in time when ALL THE SINS OF ALL CREATED MANKIND CAME UPON HIM! HE BECAME AS SIN TOTALLY PERSONIFIED! THAT WAS THE EXACT MOMENT IN ALL THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE, YEA, OF ALL ETERNITY, WHEN GOD THE FATHER TURNED AWAY FROM HIM. WHEN HIS FATHER TURNED HIS BACK FROM HIM. THE DYING SINLESS, PERFECT JESUS KNEW. FOR HE CRIED OUT: “MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME?”, (Ps 22:1; Mat 27:46; Mk 15:34). His total surrender to the requirements of BRINGING SALVATION FOR YOU AND ME, YEA, ALL OF US FROM THE FIRST MAN, TO THE LAST ONE STANDING, EVEN TO THE LAST ONE WHO DIED, BEFORE HIS RETURN. That He must shed His 223

precious Blood as the Lamb of God to PURCHASE REDEMPTION FROM THE PENALTY OF DEATH HANGING OVER EACH OF THEM. To ultimately literally die that they may all be JUSTIFIED. AND SO HE DIED. He ‘yielded up the ghost’, (Mat 27:30). For three days and three nights, He was in the grave, buried with transgressors! For 3 sunsets and 3 sunrises, the other member of the GODHEAD was literally dead! AND THEN HE WAS RISEN! (Mat 27:28; Mk 16:6; Lk 24:34; Jn 2:22; I Cor 15:4, 20). YES, HE WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD. To become the firstfruits of them that slept,” (I Cor 15.20). ‘First Born among many brethren’, (Rom 8:29)> “First Born from the dead’, (Col.1:15). YES, HE LIVES, THAT WE, TOO, CAN HAVE, MAY HAVE, AND WILL HAVE THE ULTIMATE BLESSING TO BE RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD. For we all must die, once. And after that, the JUDGMENT,’ (Heb 9:27). “And without controversy, great is the mystery of Godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, PREACHED UNTO THE GENTILES, believed in the world, received up unto glory,” (I Tim 3:16). 224

“I have glorified thee on the earth; I HAVE FINISHED THE WORK Which thou gavest me to do. And Now O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory that I had with thee before the world was,” (Jn 17:4-5). THIS IS THE GREATEST SUCCESS STORY THAT ALL MANKIND AND THOSE THAT WILL COME AFTER US WILL CELEBRATE IN JOY FOR ALL ETERNITY! Before He returned to heaven, He prayed in the true Lord's Prayer in the 17th chapter of the Gospel Book of John in the New Testament Scriptures: THIS IS THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST: "I have glorified Thee on the earth; I have finished the Work which thou gavest me to do, and now, O Father, glorify me with the glory which I had with thee before the world was,” (John 17:4) WHAT DID GOD THE FATHER DO FOR THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT OF HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON? “Where God has also exalted Him, and given Him a NAME which is above every name; that at the NAME of Jesus Christ every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every 225

tongue should confess Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father," (PHILIPPIANS 2:9). SO WHAT, DEAR FRIEND, MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION? IS YOUR

IF YOU DO the Work of God, be it so little your part and participation, if you do it with cheer, humility, appreciation, enthusiasm, and zeal being full of faith, you can then hold God to redeem, to remembrance, and lay claim to, His wonderful promises on your behalf! Christ did. And God the Father gave it to His Son in whom He was well pleased. ASK AFTER, and He will give it to you. WHEN YOU PASS THIS ON, YOU BECOME A PART OF CHRIST'S TEAM! Listen to God's RECOGNITION of you, your effort: ‘’How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of them that bringeth glad tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, thy God reigneth!" (Isaiah 52:7). You become part and parcel, not a fence-sitter on the fringes of skepticism, an integral constituent, a chosen fabric interwoven with, and of the foremost, unparalleled company: "The LORD gave the word; great was the company that published it."

Prayer
MYSTERY OF THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD

O

UR HOLY FATHER, LORD GOD

ALMIGHTY IN HEAVEN…

Before Your divine majesty and glorious presence we come. We bow our heads in all humbleness. We come on our knees to worship You. We utter our voices of supplications. We bring once more our joyful songs of praise. Our joyfilled hymns of worship. Our reverent spiritual songs of thanksgiving. The Church of the Living GOD was raised and kept in YOUR HOLY NAME.
231

Everytime we utter the phrase, it reminds us that we belong to YOU. For this, we thank You ever so much. For considering us at all. For You called the base. the weak. the not many noble. and yet YOU chose to accept us for spiritual adoption into YOUR very FAMILY. To be children, sons of GOD. We humbly acknowledge all of these wonderful blessings. We feel unworthy. For we are but lowly dust, and yet You have considered us. We are grateful beyond words to thank You, O Most High and Gracious GOD. There are many a marvelous truths YOU have revealed in this Sacred Golden Scroll Series XCI. Things we used to gloss over so carelessly and taken for granted. Yet as we reread and review the Scriptures, YOU cause our limited minds to see wondrous things we did not see before. The Scriptures are now to us a flowing fountain of living waters. that refreshes us everytime we come to drink and be nourished. we CONTINUALLY HUNGER. WE CONTINUALLY THIRST FOR THE NOURISHING SUBSTANCE OF YOUR WORD. AND THE EYE-OPENING POWER OF YOUR REVELATIONS. THE FULFILLMENT OF THE ANCIENT PROPHECIES YOU HAVE PRONOUNCED AS THEY UNFOLD IN OUR TIME OF THE END OF DAYS.
232

CONTINUE, OUR LOVING AND GRACIOUS HOLY FATHER, TO FEED US WITH ALL THESE. YOU KNOW HOW WELL THE WORLD IMPOVERISHES US WITH ALL ITS BOMBARDMENTS OF NEVER-ENDING DECEPTIONS AND LIES. Help us to overcome the world. Make us thereby very able to carry out our many tasks in doing the greatest ONE SOLE MISSION in all the world. All these we pray in the very Name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, High Priest, Great Shepherd, and Head, of the Church of the Living GOD. Amen.
