CAN WE PROVE SPIRITUAL DEATH

God plainly stated that man would die in the very day that the fruit of knowledge of good
and evil was eaten. Jesus asked us to accept this as a plain and very literal fact. We have
shown you that this knowledge of good and evil REMOVAL AGAPE LOVE
INSTANTLY WITHIN ADAM AND EVE. We have suggested that this REMOVAL
OF AGAPE LOVE ESSENCE IS IN FACT WHAT SPIRITUAL DEATH IS ALL
ABOUT, This issue is serious, for not only is man separated from God while alive on this
earth, HE WILL BE FOREVER SEPARATED FROM GOD IN ETERNITY AS
WELL, AND FACE WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS THE SECOND DEATH.

The spiritual death of man results in PHYSICAL DEATH AS WELL. At physical death
the spirit and soul of are separated from the body. The body then goes into the ground,
and the spirit and soul go to their appropriate destination, which is determined by one
factor: THE AGAPE LOVE FACTOR. If the soul has not received the AGAPE LOVE
OF GOD, that soul faces ETERNAL SEPARATION FROM HIS CREATOR. The
blood of Christ will not avail that soul anything, the grace of God will not avail that soul
anything. THAT SOUL FACES ETERNAL SEPARATION FROM GOD, WHICH
CHRIST TERMED THE SECOND DEATH.

He called it the "second death" because man is already dead, He is not aware that he is
dead in a spiritual sense, because that aspect is hidden from him. He is not aware of either
the Kingdom of Heaven or the dominion of Satan. Both are a mystery to him, unknown,
as a secret. He may wonder about them, he may meditate upon them, but they are beyond
his natural knowledge. Because man is dead spiritually to God by absence of agape love
within, he is very much alive unto Satan and to the world.

Because Jesus Christ claims that all men ARE SPIRITUALLY DEAD UNLESS
REGENERATED, then OBVIOUSLY THEY FACE ANOTHER DEATH AFTER
PHYSICAL DEATH: TOTAL AND COMPLETE SEPARATION FROM GOD.

"Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the FIRST RESURRECTION ON SUCH
THE SECOND DEATH HATH NO POWER, but they shall be priests of God and
Christ, and reign with him a thousand years." (Revelation 20:6)

There is a SECOND DEATH. This second death is for ALL ETERNITY. There is no
reprieve, no second chance, no way out. The scripture makes it clear that IF A PERSON
HAS NOT LAID HOLD OF AGAPE LOVE DURING THEIR LIFETIME ON
EARTH, AND THEY DIE ON EARTH WITHOUT IT, THEY FACE THE
SECOND DEATH.

"He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit sayeth unto the Churches; HE
THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL NOT BE HURT OF THE SECOND DEATH.
(Revelation 2:11)
Notice what Jesus says he: HE THAT OVERCOMETH SHALL NOT BE HURT OF
THE SECOND DEATH. Jesus ties overcoming directly to the second death having
power. We found in 1 John 4:7 that EVERYONE BORN OF GOD HAS AGAPE
LOVE. We found in 1 John 3:1 that IT WAS AGAPE LOVE THAT MADE PEOPLE
A SON OF GOD. We find then a common denominator, that AGAPE LOVE FOUND
AND BESTOWED IS WHAT MAKES ONE AN OVERCOMER:

"For WHATSOEVER IS BORN OF GOD OVERCOMETH THE WORLD." (1


John 5:4)

If we are granted AGAPE LOVE AT SPIRITUAL REBIRTH, then obviously WE


DID NOT HAVE IT PRIOR TO THAT POINT OF TIME.[/u] If we did not have it,
we were not ALIVE UNTO GOD. God does not need to grant you something if you
have it already. If agape love granted is what makes you a SON OF GOD, and anyone
born of GOD AGAPE LOVES BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN GRANTED IT, THEN
ONLY THOSE WHO AGAPE LOVE ARE THE OVERCOMERS! To be a
OVERCOMER IS TO BE born of god. No one can be born of God unless and until they
have OBTAINED AGAPE LOVE, which is IN THE SON. 1 John 5:12 says:

"He who HATH THE SON HATH LIFE; and he who HATH NOT THE SON OF
GOD HATH NOT LIFE."

Jesus told us rather bluntly that LIFE WAS AT THE END OF THE NARROW WAY. HE
ALSO TOLD US WE MUST ENTER THE STRAIT GATE AND WALK THE
NARROW WAY THE FULL DISTANCE TO FIND LIFE. If Jesus IS LIFE, and that
LIFE is the destination of the narrow way, then CHRIST WAITS AT THE END OF
THE NARROW WAY TO BESTOW AGAPE LOVE TO THE BELIEVER,
BECAUSE AGAPE LOVE IS "LIFE." We have come full circle, we have found
complete agreement between Genesis and the fall of man to the very heart of the message
of Jesus Christ.

Christ considered ALL MEN TO BE SPIRITUALLY DEAD TO GOD. He made a


remark to one of his believers and followers to that effect. To us it appears rude when we
consider the circumstances, for one of his believers wanted to go and bury his father.

"And another of his disciples said unto him, LORD, suffer me FIRST TO GO
BURY MY FATHER. But Jesus said unto him, FOLLOW ME; and let the DEAD
BURY THEIR DEAD." (Matthew 8:21-22)

What Jesus was saying is that ALL MANKIND IS SPIRITUALLY DEAD BECAUSE
OF THE FALL OF MAN. Even though man is alive and walks upon planet earth he is
DEAD TO GOD in his spiritual essence. Because they are dead spiritually, and because
they will NEVER COME TO TRUE SPIRITUAL LIFE,Christ is blunt: LET THE
DEAD BURY THEIR OWN DEAD. They die and await the final SECOND DEATH.
What is this second death?

"And DEATH and HELL WERE CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE. THIS IS
THE SECOND DEATH." "And WHOSOEVER WAS NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN
THE BOOK OF LIFE WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE."

Christ and God both insist that there is a very literal and real lake of fire. All those that
are not found written in this book of 'LIFE' WERE CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF
FIRE. What is this so called book of life? We will find that it is the BOOK OF AGAPE
LIFE. It is the book in which all those who overcame and were granted the gift of agape
love are written. Those that DID NOT OVERCOME, AND DID NOT FIND AGAPE
LOVE WERE NOT WRITTEN THERE. For one reason or another, they failed to
comprehend THE SEVERITY OF THEIR DESTINATION. The world overcame
them, and they go into eternal ruin.

When you tie together the comments of Christ here and his statements that one had to be
BORN FROM ABOVE, and we couple them with Genesis and the story of the fall, a
portrait begins to emerge, and we begin to FIND THAT AGAPE LOVE LIES AT THE
BOTTOM OF IT ALL. You will find such words as 'quickened, born again, regenerated,
and life all have a common denominator: THE BESTOWMENT OF DIVINE AGAPE
LOVE TO THE TRUE SEEKER OF GOD. All others go into eternal ruin. Thus it is
that any human soul, who will KEEP THE SAYINGS OF JESUS and who will DO THE
WILL OF THE FATHER, can find ETERNAL LIFE AND AVOID THE SECOND
DEATH. They will find AGAPE, and they will KNOW THE TRUTH BEHIND ALL OF
LIFE, and this truth shall set them FREE INDEED.

To move further in depth to prove that agape love lost is in fact spiritual death, we will
explore the conversation that Satan had with Eve in closer detail:

"Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God
had made. And He said unto the woman, Yea, HATH GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT
EAT OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN?" (Genesis 3:1)

The word "subtle" is "aruwm" and it means CUNNING, CRAFTY, in short an ARTIST
AT DECEPTION. Christ claimed that Satan was the Father of lies, and that he is the
deceiver of the WHOLE WORLD:

"And the great dragon was cast out, that OLD SERPENT, called THE DEVIL, and
SATAN, WHICH DECIEVETH THE WHOLE WORLD:

he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (Revelation 12:9)
The vast majority of people on earth DO NOT REALLY BELIEVE IN SATAN. They
may have a form of mild belief, but they do not UNDERSTAND OR KNOW THE
DECEPTION OF SATAN. The vast majority of apostate Christians do not believe in
Satan or his demons either. They are totally under his control and dominion. Satan's
primary method of operation IS VIA TOTAL SECRECY. He operates behind the scenes,
an invisible power that sweeps the vast majority of man into eternal ruin. Christ declared
Satan WAS REAL. The Bible does not attempt to prove the reality of Satan, it merely
says that SATAN IS. The Bible does attempt to prove the reality of God, it simply states
that GOD IS. Jesus said that if we want to come to a knowledge of the REAL TRUTH
behind life, we must become as little children. We must SIMPLY TRUST WHAT GOD
SAYS, AND ACCEPT IT AS FACTUAL.

When we do, and when we comply with the sayings of Jesus, and do the will of the
Father, the reality of THE SPIRIT WORLD WILL BE MADE KNOWN. It will be made
known in the EXPERIENTIAL SENSE OF THE WORD. The believer on the narrow
way will experience first hand THE REALITY OF DEMONS. THEY WILL COME TO
HIM AND ATTEMPT TO PREVENT PASSAGE. They will ply every trick in the book
to prevent passage down the narrow way, for they must if they are to keep that soul from
entering heaven. IT WILL ALL BE DONE VIA DECEPTION. This deception will be in
the form of DIVERSION TO OTHER THINGS OR BY FALSE DOCTRINE OR
THEOLOGY.

Satan has then an advantage over Eve. He is the master of deception. Notice what he does
to Eve. He asks a seemingly innocent question: YOU CAN'T EAT OF ANY TREE IN
THE GARDEN? He does not point out the ONE TREE HE KNOWS THEY CANNOT
EAT FROM, HE SWEEPS THE ENTIRE LOT OF TREES. He knows that this will
RIVET EVE'S ATTENTION TO THE ONE FORBIDDEN TREE, and he does not have
to even mention it.

"And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the
garden:

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye
shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, LEST YE DIE.

And the serpent said unto the woman, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE.

For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then shall your EYES BE
OPENED, AND YE SHALL BE AS GODS, KNOWING GOOD AND EVIL."
(Genesis 3:2-5)

Once Satan has the attention of the woman riveted upon the ONE forbidden tree, he then
CONTRADICTS GOD. He says to her, "YEA, HATH GOD SAID?" Satan works the
same way today, and clearly works that way through the false teachers WHO DENY OR
CONTRADICT JESUS CHRIST. If a searching soul points out to a false teacher or
preacher a truth about the narrow way, HE WILL WAVE A HAND AND COME UP
WITH A THEOLOGY TO DENY OR CONTRADICT IT. "YEA, HATH GOD SAID?"
The invisible power behind the false prophets is Satan himself. To the unbeliever or only
casual seeker of truth, he will plant all forms of questions, disputing and doubting about
the AUTHENTICITY OF THE WORD OF GOD. He will question it's integrity, and
that is really only a bunch of ancient fables. If that does not work, he will then attempt to
REINTERPRET WHAT WAS CLEARLY STATED, AND ALWAYS VIA THEOLOGY
OR DOCTRINE THAT CLEARLY STANDS IN CONTRADICTION TO WHAT
CHRIST SAID.

The mark of a false teacher is always CONTRADICTION OR DIRECT


OPPOSITION TO THE CLEAR WORDS OF GOD. Satan must and always does
CONTRADICT THE WORD OF GOD. A contradiction is at the root a DENIAL OF
THE WORD OF GOD. After Satan contradicts it, he then SUBSTITUTES THE LIE
FOR THE TRUTH. If Christ said the ONLY way to eternal life is via the strait gate and
narrow way, that will be CONTRADICTED, AND THE DIRECT OPPOSITE WILL BE
ADVANCED AND HELD OUT AS THE REAL TRUTH. God said that eating of the tree
would bring immediate death. Satan utterly denied it, and said it would bring a new form
of LIFE. What Satan says always has truth in it, but HE REDEFINES EVERYTHING.

Those who have read George Orwell 1984 know about the art of DOUBLESPEAK. The
communists are masters at the art of doublespeak. They use the same words you use, but
their meanings ARE REVERSED. Satan is behind them, he is the driving force behind
everything they do and say.

Satan traps the vast majority of mankind simply by discrediting the word of God. They
simply do not accept or believe what the Bible says about mankind or the mission of
Christ. If they come to a realization that it is telling the truth, Satan immediately moves in
to make sure that it is not

PROPERLY UNDERSTOOD. He takes simple and direct commands of Christ and makes
them complicated. Within the complicated theology Satan presents always is a
CONTRADICTION, and always that contradiction HAS REDEFINITION'S OF THE
KEY WORDS CHRIST USED.

The tree of knowledge thus contains a knowledge that has grave implications for
mankind, and he becomes A LIVING BUT SPIRITUALLY DEAD ENTITY. AND HE
BECOMES A GOD UNTO HIMSELF.

"But the Lord is the TRUE GOD, he is the LIVING GOD, and the EVERLASTING
KING; at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to
abide his indignation.

Thus shall ye say unto them, THE GODS THAT HAVE NOT MADE THE
HEAVENS AND THE EARTH,

EVEN THEY SHALL PERISH FROM THE EARTH, AND FROM UNDER THE
HEAVENS."
(Jeremiah 10:10-11)

"The THOUGHTS OF THOSE WHO DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL


TRANSGRESS WITHIN THEM; AND THEY SHALL BE ED IN ALL THEIR
WAYS.

THEY SHALL TRANSGRESS

AND THINK THEMSELVES GODS'

WHILE EVIL SHALL BE MULTIPLIED AMONG THEM." (Enoch 79:8-9)

Man will drift so far away from his literal creator that he will begin to think that HE IS A
GOD HIMSELF. He will develop a spiritual concept that claims that THE GOD FORCE
LIES WITHIN, AND THAT ALL MAN HAS TO DO IS TO UNLEASH IT. This God
force will be called the CHRIST WITHIN. It will be a total delusion, a deception from
Satan, which God willingly allows for they have refused the STRAIT GATE AND
NARROW WAY. The root of this deception is that NATURAL LOVE FORCE WITHIN
THEM. They will have experienced the emotional highs that fleetingly pass by when
LOVE COMES TO THE SURFACE. They will remember the bliss of love in these
moments, and they will seek if from WITHIN THEMSELVES.

They will explore the inner mysteries of the mind, and will declare that WITHIN LIE
THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE. INNER SPACE WILL BE THE LAST AND
FINAL FRONTIER. If man can conquer these secrets, he will unlock the DIVINE, AND
WILL AT LAST MERGE WITH GOD, AND JUMP THE LAST QUANTUM LEAP
INTO GODHOOD AND TOTAL UNION WITH GOD. In many areas the New Age
Theology is very correct. It is almost a mirror image of Christianity. Where it is wrong IS
THE METHOD OF FINDING THE TRUE GOD. They claim that he lies WITHIN
THEM, AND BEATS IN THEIR INNER HEARTS AS TRUE LOVE. All they need to is
to somehow UNLOCK THIS LOVE, AND LET IT FLOW FROM WITHIN TOWARDS
OTHERS.

It is the unlocking of this LOVE FORCE that is THE CHRIST. All mankind has this
CHRIST FORCE dwelling within them. The search is not FOR CHRIST, but to
UNLOCK THEIR CHRIST FORCE. Again we stress this so called CHRIST FORCE IS
PHILEO LOVE, OR NATURAL LOVE WITHIN. They refuse to accept the concept that
they ARE DESTITUTE OF REAL TRUE LOVE. They refuse the Scriptural position that
THEY DO NOT POSSESS TRUE LOVE AT ALL, THAT IT IS NOT A PART OF THEM
OR THEIR NATURE. They CONTRADICT CHRIST, who declares they are DEAD
WITHIN, WALKING DEAD MEN.

According to Christ, man does not have true love within his nature. He could search to
unlock true love all he wants, it will avail him nothing, he will die and go into eternal
ruin. This is the heart of the denial of Satan. Christ says the human soul has no real love
within, Satan says: "YEA, HATH GOD SAID?" He then presents the concept that
NATURAL PHILEO LOVE IS THE AGAPE LOVE OF GOD, IS DIVINE LOVE,
IS DOING WHAT GOD COMMANDED. [ This concept has infiltrated the Church
totally, for all believers are told to LOVE, AND NO ATTEMPT IS MADE TO TELL
PEOPLE THAT THEY MUST ENTER THE STRAIT GATE AND WALK THE
NARROW WAY TO FIND AGAPE LOVE.

The concept of Godhood and spiritual death go hand in hand. Spiritual death
SEPARATES MAN FROM HIS TRUE CREATOR. God is not even in the MEMORY
OF MAN. He looks around and innately knows that there must be a God. BUT WHO IS
THIS GOD? Is God simply a FORCE? Is God simply an IT, an impersonal unknowable
God? Is God personal, and if so, what kind of person is He? If he is personal, why can't
we KNOW HIM? The created beings must also assume the role of God in their new state.
They ascend with Satan to their throne in the Holy of Holies. They will, along with Satan
now control every aspect of their life. They are a NEW CREATION, A SATANIC
CREATION, WHOSE FATHER IS SATAN, NOT GOD. They are a masterpiece of lies
and deceptions. Their entire nature is radically altered for all time.

[centered] "And the EYES OF THEM BOTH WERE OPENED." [/centered]

The word 'eyes' is most interesting, AND IT WILL SHED FURTHER LIGHT ON OUR
STUDY OF THE FALL. The word 'eyes' is "ayin" and it means BOTH PHYSICAL EYE
AND INNER ESSENCE, THEIR CORE AWARENESS, THEIR CENTRAL AND
GREAT "I AM". It represents the SEAT OF POWER, THEIR HOLY OF HOLIES. It says
that this central spiritual essence was OPENED. The word 'opened' is "paqach" and it
means OPEN, TO OBSERVE, TO SEE. What did they see? The Scripture does not really
tell us, except that THEY KNEW THEY WERE NAKED. Their came upon them an
AWARENESS THEY HAD NOT KNOWN BEFORE.

We get a sense of this type of NON-AWARENESS in the animal kingdom. Animals ARE
NOT AWARE THAT THEY ARE NAKED. They are not concerned with their nakedness,
it is not a part of their make-up. They would not, nor could not comprehend what you
were saying to them even if you could communicate with them, for IT IS NOT IN THEIR
NATURE. Animals will fornicate right in front of everyone if nature calls them to do so.
They ARE NOT AWARE. It is only man that is AWARE, AND THAT AWARENESS
COMES FROM THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL.

Man suddenly KNEW EXPERIENTIALLY FROM DEEP WITHIN that he was naked
and should be clothed. They ingested a very literal and very real knowledge that instantly
changed their makeup.

"For Adam WAS NOT DECEIVED, but the woman BEING DECEIVED WAS IN
TRANSGRESSION."

Here we find that the woman was under DECEPTION. It did not change the matter of
TRANSGRESSION. Simply because one is ignorant does not excuse the act of
transgression. The penalties of the law fall swiftly upon those who KNOW AND
TRANSGRESS AND THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW AND TRANSGRESS. Modern
theology makes a big issue of how Eve was in total disobedience, but the fact really is she
was under RANK DECEPTION. This does not make her any

Pg 24

less disobedient, but is radically alters THE REFLECTION OF HER DISOBEDIENCE.


Adam was not in deception. He knew perfectly well what he was doing was forbidden by
God, and he did it anyway. He saw the woman he loved with a pure agape love go into
ruin. He elected to be with her. He laid down his life to be with his wife. He went into
this thing with his eyes wide open. It was rank disobedience. Now God has a real
problem on His hands. Eve was under rank deception, and Adam did what he did out of
pure love.

Both underwent immediate spiritual death as we have shown. They went from pure agape
love essence with no knowledge of good or evil to a creature filled with SELF LOVE,
FEAR, AND HAVING A SPLIT PERSONALITY, A KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND
EVIL.

Notice that the internal core of their being is now BLACK, symbolic of spiritual death to
God. There is now no trace of pure agape love, but in it's place a dualistic nature with an
imperfect phileo love emerges, a NEW CREATION, FOR MAN WAS BORN INTO THE
KINGDOM OF SATAN. Satan is now their Father and is now their master and Lord.

Notice that prior to the fall, THE CREATOR GOD SITS IN UNION WITH MAN IN
THE CENTER OF HIS BEING. GOD WAS UPON THE THRONE IN THE HOLY OF
HOLIES. After the fall, God is tossed out, and man ASCENDS TO THE POSITION OF
GODHOOD on the throne of self. AGAPE LOVE DIES, UNION WITH GOD DIES,
COMMUNION IS SEVERED AND MAN IS ALONE. This is the truth that Christ
attempted to show to man. It was violently rejected by all except the FEW. From His
ministry on earth for over three years of intense teaching. Christ came up with a handful
of TRUE BELIEVERS. All the rest had left Him at one time or another. THEY COULD
NOT STAND HIS HARD SAYINGS, THEY COULD NOT BARE HIS DOCTRINES.

We will now go direct to Scripture and prove that SPIRITUAL DEATH IS THE LOSS
OF DIVINE AGAPE LOVE, AND THIS LOSS OF LOVE IS WHAT DAMNS THE
HUMAN RACE. Sin is only the SURFACE MANIFESTATION of this inability to agape
love. Christ was most steadfast in His insistence that man was SPIRITUALLY DEAD,
AND THAT BECAUSE HE WAS DEAD, HE HAD TO BE REBORN INTO THE
KINGDOM OF GOD. He had to be born AGAIN A SECOND TIME.

"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT
SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD." (John 3:3)

"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. " (John 3:5)

"That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is
Spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee, YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN." (John 3:7-8 )

Why should we have to be born again a SECOND TIME? Why would you have to be
born of the Spirit if your spirit is alive to God right now? The answer is obvious: YOU
WOULD NOT. Christ is clearly telling us that man must UNDERGO A
SUPERNATURAL TRANSFORMATION OF THE SPIRIT, AND HE MUST BE BORN
A SECOND TIME, or he cannot enter heaven. If spiritual rebirth is an absolute
requirement to enter heaven, then WOULD IT NOT BEHOOVE US TO MOVE EVERY
OBSTACLE THAT WE COULD ATTAIN TO IT? Christ gave NO OTHER OPTIONS,
NO OTHER WAYS, NO OTHER PATHWAYS, NO OTHER DOCTRINES, NO OTHER
THEOLOGIES, NO OTHER ALTERNATIVES WHATSOEVER. Your opinions do not
count, your concepts and your ideas do not matter with God: YOU MUST BE BORN
AGAIN.

"I am the DOOR: BY ME IF ANY MAN ENTER IN, HE


SHALL BE SAVED,
AND SHALL GO IN AND OUT, AND FIND PASTURE." (John 10:9)

That is pretty exclusive, for it REMOVES ANY OTHER NAME, ANY OTHER
SYSTEM, ANY OTHER WAY INTO HEAVEN WHATEVER. You either come in VIA
THE LIVING CHRIST, WHO HOLDS AGAPE LOVE IN HIMSELF, or you do not
enter in. Christ is LIFE. Life is in the essence of the Son: AGAPE LOVE. One can only
enter heaven by FINDING CHRIST, FINDING AGAPE LOVE. Scripture proves THE
REAL CHRIST IS WELL HIDDEN. He cannot be found unless one searches with all of
HIS HEART, SOUL AND MIND. Christ alone holds the keys. Satan of course knows this
to be a fact, so all of his efforts will be made in the area or DIVERTING THE SEEKER
FROM EVER COMING INTO LITERAL CONTACT WITH JESUS CHRIST. He will
offer up a substitute theology which denies ANY SUCH CONTACT WITH THE
LIVING CHRIST IS NECESSARY.

Christ is then telling us we need to be REBORN. When one is born, what is granted to
him: LIFE. A stillborn is one who is born dead. From God's perspective all human beings
are born as STILLBORNS. They are dead to Him and His kingdom, because they have
no AGAPE LOVE ESSENCE WITHIN. From our perspective we are born INTO LIFE.
We are born into PHYSICAL LIFE. Life beats in our breast as we go out to explore this
world we are brought into. Jesus said, "That which is born of THE FLESH IS FLESH."
The flesh has a form of life. It is energized and can walk around. Part of the flesh is the
human soul. The soul includes the CONSCIOUS AND UNCONSCIOUS MIND. The
flesh part of man is very much ALIVE. But the life is has within IS THE LIFE OF
FLESH, FOR IT IS BORN OF THE FLESH.

Christ then added, "THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT." Man may be
alive IN THE FLESH, BECAUSE HE IS BORN OF THE FLESH, BUT HE IS NOT
ALIVE TO GOD IN THE SPIRIT. His spiritual essence, HIS HEART OF HEARTS IS A
STONE TO GOD. It is alive only to Satan, energized by a mysterious force of evil, which
is why man tends towards strife and violence, and must by discipline and much effort
learn to curb the evil within. Christ is separating the two concepts, attempting to explain
to us the RADICAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FLESH AND SPIRIT. It is in the
SPIRIT that man must be reborn, for the flesh is lost, hopeless, totally corrupted, and
beyond repair. That is why Jesus said the following:

"It is THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH;

THE FLESH PROFITETH NOTHING;

The words that I speak unto you, THEY ARE SPIRIT, AND THEY ARE LIFE."
(John 6:63)

The flesh, the soul man DOES NOT PROFIT from this spiritual walk, in point of fact the
FLESH, THE SOUL MAN WILL HATE IT. It will run against everything in his nature.
THE ISSUE HERE IS SPIRITUAL LIFE, NOT THE FLESH, OF THE LIFE OF THE
SOUL.
"GOD IS SPIRIT: AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN
SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH." (John 4:24)

When Jesus arrived he brought with Him a radical message. MAN MUST UNDERGO A
SPIRITUAL REBIRTH. Unless and until a soul had undergone this SPIRITUAL
REBIRTH, he could not worship GOD IN THE SPIRIT, NOR IN TRUTH. The word
'must' is "die" and it means NECESSARY, BINDING. In our language ABSOLUTELY
NECESSARY, NO OTHER OPTIONS. It is a direct requirement. We will find that the
word truth here is a code word for AGAPE LOVE. Remember when Jesus said you must
be born of WATER AND OF THE SPIRIT? Scripture proves water is A CODE WORD
FOR AGAPE LOVE. A person MUST BE BORN AGAIN IN TO THE DIVINE AGAPE
LOVE ESSENCE IN HIS SPIRIT. When that event occurs, HE IS BORN OF WATER
AND OF THE SPIRIT. HE IS THEN ABLE TO WORSHIP GOD IN THE TRUTH OF
AGAPE LOVE WORSHIP. You will see how all of this fits together.

"Beloved, LET US (AGAPAO) LOVE one another; for (AGAPAO) LOVE IS OF


GOD:

AND EVERYONE THAT (AGAPAO) LOVETH

IS BORN OF GOD, AND KNOWETH GOD." (1 John 4:7)

Here then we have another proof of SPIRITUAL DEATH, AND THAT SPIRITUAL
DEATH WAS THE LOSS OF THE DIVINE AGAPE LOVE ESSENCE. It is the agape
love essence bestowed that IS BEING BORN AGAIN. We would not need to be born
again IF WE ALREADY HAD AGAPE LOVE WITHIN OUR SPIRIT, OR OUR SOUL.
The facts of these Scriptures prove conclusively that WHEN MAN ATE OF THE TREE
OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL HE LOST HIS AGAPE LOVE
ESSENCE, HE WAS PLUNGED INTO SPIRITUAL DEATH, AND HE IS DEAD
UNTO HIS CREATOR.

There is your answer in all of it's beauty and simplicity. We must be born again into
PURE AGAPE LOVE IF WE ARE TO ENTER HEAVEN. Christ then, is ABSOLUTE
IN HIS CALL: YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN INTO THE AGAPE LOVE SPIRIT OR
YOU CANNOT WORSHIP GOD EITHER IN SPIRIT OR IN TRUTH. That is why the
vast majority of Christians are sent away into eternal ruin and loss: THEY NEVER
CAME TO AUTHENTIC REBIRTH, THEY NEVER WERE GRANTED DIVINE
AGAPE LOVE TO COVER THEIR MULTITUDE OF SINS.

"Behold what MANNER OF (AGAPE) LOVE the father hath


BESTOWED UPON US,

THAT WE SHOULD BE CALLED THE SONS OF GOD.. " (1 John 3:1)

"For whom he did foreknow, he also did PREDESTINATE,

TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON,

that he might be the firstborn of many brethren." (Romans 8:29)

The image and likeness of God is AGAPE LOVE. The image and likeness of Christ WAS
PURE AGAPE LOVE. Then it is obvious that the IMAGE WE ARE TO BE
CONFORMED TO IS THE DIVINE AGAPE LOVE OF CHRIST. In order to be
conformed to that image, you must it BESTOWED TO YOU. Christ said that the only
way that would ever happen is if we ENTER THE STRAIT GATE AND WALK THE
NARROW WAY. If you refuse, you are simply HANDED A DELUSION, A
DECEPTION THAT YOU ARE SAVED, THAT YOU HAVE THE AGAPE LOVE OF
CHRIST WHEN IN FACT IT IS A LIE OF LIES.

The whole process of REGENERATION and subsequent SANCTIFICATION is to bring


us into a CONFORMING IMAGE IN AGAPE LOVE. We are being brought back in
step by step process to our ORIGINALLY CREATED IMAGE, WE ARE BEING
BROUGHT BACK TO ADAM AND EVE AS THEY WERE PRIOR TO THE FALL.
The process will not be completed until the resurrection/rapture.

We will now offer more proof that man is considered by God to be spiritually dead, with
no agape love within his flesh.

"And you HATH HE QUICKENED, who

WERE DEAD IN TRESPASSED AND SINS."

Wherein in times past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to

THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR, THE SPIRIT THAT NOW
WORKETH IN THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE:

Among whom also WE ALL had over conversation in times past in the LUSTS OF
THE FLESH, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; AND WERE

BY NATURE THE CHILDREN OF WRATH, EVEN AS OTHERS.


But God, WHO IS RICH IN MERCY, FOR HIS GREAT (AGAPE) LOVE
WHEREWITH HE (AGAPAO) LOVED US,

EVEN WHEN WE WERE DEAD IN SINS,

HATH QUICKENED US TOGETHER WITH CHRIST, (BY GRACE ARE YE


SAVED)

AND HAS RAISED US UP TOGETHER, AND MADE US SIT TOGETHER IN


HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS." (Ephesians 2:1-6)

Here we have a direct confirmation that ALL MANKIND LIES UNDER THE
DOMINION OF THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR (SATAN). He now
works int heminds and hearts of all UNREGENERATE MEN AND WOMEN. He is
THEIR REAL AND LITERAL FATHER, FOR UNLESS THEY ARE BORN OF
GOD,THEY ARE BORN OF THE FLESH, AND THEY ARE UNDER SATANIC
CONTROL. Once again we find the element of AGAPE LOVE embedded in the
message. We are MADE ALIVE WITH CHRIST, WE ARE QUICKENED WITH HIM.
We will study this later, but the word quickened is another word for BEING BORN
AGAIN,OR REGENERATION. It is the granting of LIFE, and life SITS AS THE END
OF THE NARROW WAY.

"And you BEING DEAD IN YOUR SINS AND THE UNCIRCUMCISION OF


YOUR FLESH, HATH HE QUICKENED TOGETHER WITH HIM, HAVING
FORGIVEN YOU ALL TRESPASSES.

blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary
to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross." (Colossians 2:13-14)

Again we find another reference to BRING DEAD IN TRESPASSES AND SINS. Could
it be God was not fooling when He told Adam that death would follow the minute he ate
of the forbidden fruit? Once again with death being mentioned, the necessary counterpart
of being BORN AGAIN is mentioned by the word 'quickened'. Again we find a reference
to this QUICKENING TO BEING 'TOGETHER WITH CHRIST'. If you are together
with Christ, could we not say you ARE IN UNION AND COMMUNION WITH HIM?

"And this is the CONDEMNATION, that LIGHT (AGAPE LOVE IN CHRIST) IS


COME INTO THE WORLD AND
MEN LOVED DARKNESS (THEIR OWN PHILEO LOVE DARKNESS)

RATHER THAN LIGHT, BECAUSE THEIR DEES WERE EVIL." (John 3:19)

This is a very important verse to prove out spiritual death and the total absence of agape
love. Christ says there is but ONE CONDEMNATION. That condemnation is this:
AGAPE LOVE CAME INTO THE WORLD IN CHRIST, BUT MEN LOVED THEIR
OWN PHILEO LOVE LIGHT WHICH IS DARKNESS TO GOD and they WOULD
NOT come to the light of AGAPE LOVE to have their deeds proved for what they really
were. In other words, MEN WOULD NOT ALLOW CHRIST TO JUDGE THEIR
WORKS BY HIS AGAPE LOVE STANDARD. They refused HIS MEASURING
POINT FOR TRUE JUDGMENT OF ANY WORKS DONE.

They said THEIR OWN PHILEO LOVE, THEIR OWN NATURAL LOVE RELEASED
was just as good as any other love, and therefore THERE WAS NO REAL NEED TO
COME. That was the delusion within their minds. They refused to come to Christ and
have their deeds REPROVED BY THE AGAPE LOVE STANDARD. If their so called
works were held up to the LIGHT OF AGAPE LOVE, THE TRUE LOVE STANDARD
OF THE UNIVERSE, their works would pale in comparison. They would be proved liars
and hypocrites, their so called WORKS OF PHILEO LOVE WOULD BE A TOTAL
SHAM. They would not face, they could not FACE THIS REBUKE OF THE LORD.

If in fact the natural love of man was TRUE AGAPE LOVE, man would have no need to
fear any form of judgment. Mankind however HAS AN INNATE FEAR OF GOD, AN
INNATE FEAR OF DEATH, BECAUSE HE KNOWS THERE IS REAL AND
LITERAL JUDGMENT COMING. He pretends he does not know it, he busies himself
with a multitude of things in life so he does not have to face it, but face it we all must.
WHY NOT FACE IT NOW, GET IT OVER WITH, AND BE RESCUED FROM
ETERNAL RUIN BY ONE WHO REALLY LOVES YOU? Why not enter the strait gate
now and begin the long walk of the narrow way, and be judged of Christ? It hurts, it is
full of anguish, it is full of sorrow, it is full of REPROOF, but at the end, when He loves
you has broken your soul, and has smashed you to a million pieces, HE WILL COME,
HE WILL APPEAR UNTO YOU AND GENTLY HOLD YOU IN HIS ARMS AND
SAVE YOU FROM ETERNAL RUIN. Do not delay it, for the time is far shorter than
you think.

MORE PROOF THAT MAN IS SEVERED FROM GOD

If mankind is in fact DEAD UNTO GOD, and is SEVERED FROM GOD, CUT OFF,
and is in fact adrift with no hope and no compass, then we might say that MANKIND IS
BLIND TO GOD, THAT HE DWELLS IN DARKNESS, THAT HE KNOWS NOT
WHATEVER ANYTHING OF GOD, HE IS DESTITUTE OF ANY KNOWLEDGE OF
GOD. If a man is blind, he walks in darkness. The use of the term blind refers to one
WHO CANNOT SEE. Because man is DEAD IN HIS TRESPASSES AND SINS, HE
CANNOT SEE GOD. HE CANNOT FATHOM GOD, HE IS BLIND TO GOD, AND HE
WALKS IN THE DARKNESS OF NO AGAPE LOVE.

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I AM THE LIGHT (AGAPE LOVE)
OF THE WORLD; he that FOLLOWETH ME SHALL NOT WALK IN
DARKNESS, BUT SHALL HAVE THE LIGHT (AGAPE LOVE) OF LIFE" (John
8:12)

Notice how Jesus contrasts the LIGHT to the DARKNESS, Notice that He also says that
ONE MUST FOLLOW HIM IF THEY ARE TO HAVE THE LIGHT. If they refuse to
follow, they shall not obtain the light, in spite of their claims to the contrary. We have said
that LIGHT is a code word for AGAPE LOVE. There are many code words for agape
love in Scripture:
WATER, SALT, AND MANY OTHERS WHICH WE WILL PROVE OUT TO BE
TRUE. John refers to this light, and ties it directly to the AGAPE LOVE OF GOD.

"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." I John 1:5

This is pretty blunt and not hard to understand. GOD IS LIGHT. John also said GOD IS
AGAPE LOVE. It does not take a MENTAL GENIUS TO FIGURE OUT THAT LIGHT
IS AGAPE LOVE. The inner essence of God is what makes Him Light. His inner core
essence is PURE AGAPE LOVE LIGHT. GOD IS LIGHT, GOD IS AGAPE LOVE,
GOD IS LIFE. We find a direct reference to the ABSOLUTE PURITY OF GOD'S
AGAPE LOVE. THERE IS NO DARKNESS IN GOD AT ALL. That is a direct reference
to the 100% purity of THE DIVINE LOVE OF GOD. Therefore:

GOD IS LIGHT VS MAN IS DARKNESS

Man lives in darkness to the agape love of God because it was totally lost at the fall. It is
not a part of his nature, of his make-up, IT IS A MYSTERY TO MAN, TOTALLY
UNKNOWABLE.
" To OPEN their eyes, and to

TURN THEM FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS UNTO LIGHT

FROM THE POWER OF SATAN UNTO GOD,

THAT THEY MIGHT RECEIVE FORGIVENESS OF SINS

AND INHERITANCE AMONG THEM WHICH ARE SANCTIFIED BY

FAITH THAT IS IN ME" Acts 26:18

Here again we find a direct reference that man lives IN UTTER DARKNESS, UNDER
THE DOMINION AND THE CONTROL OF SATAN. Again we find a reference to
LIGHT, which we know is AGAPE LOVE, and that THIS AGAPE LOVE
BESTOWMENT WILL BRING THEM TOTAL FORGIVENESS OF THEIR SINS. The
'many' who stood before Christ did not have their sins forgiven them. THEY DIED IN
THEIR TRESPASSES AND SINS. This happened because they did not lay hold of agape
love light so there sins might be forgiven them. Those who have AGAPE LOVE
BESTOWMENT ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO INHERIT THE KINGDOM. S WILL
NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM. THE MANY WERE IN FACT S, IMPOSTERS, WHO
ONLY CLAIMED TO HAVE THE AGAPE LOVE OF CHRIST, BUT WHO REFUSED
TO WALK THE NARROW WAY TO OBTAIN IT.

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but


AGAINST THE PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS,
AGAINST THE RULERS OF DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD,
AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES."
Ephesians 6:12

The fight is not against our fellow man, but is instead AGAINST AN UNSEEN AND
HIGHLY ORGANIZED ENEMY. Satan has a vast army of demons which are invisible to
us, but who control and have dominion over the minds of men, women and children. It is
against this very FORMIDABLE ARMY that WE MUST FIGHT A BATTLE AGAINST.
Satan and his demons have an entire well organized army that have but one purpose. TO
KEEP MANKIND FROM COMING TO THE LIGHT OF AGAPE LOVE. He does it by
diversion, by deception, by false theology and false doctrine. If one wades through all of
that, and begins to walk the narrow way, he will FIND AND ENCOUNTER IN HAND
TO HAND COMBAT THE DEMONIC FORCES OF EVIL. God knew this, and so gave
the TRUE SEEKER OF CHRIST THE POWER TO DEFEAT UTTERLY THE ENEMY.

The point being that Satan is the CHIEF OF THE SPIRITUAL POWERS OF
DARKNESS. His dominion is over the MINDS OF MAN. HE WORKS IN THE
CONSCIOUS AND SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, but he works is total secrecy. HE
CONTROLS AND MANIPULATES MANKIND TO HIS OWN ENDS: HE WANTS TO
BE WORSHIPPED JUST AS GOD IS WORSHIPPED. Mankind is about to enter into
the greatest delusion of all: HE WILL WORSHIP SATAN THINKING HE IS
WORSHIPPING GOD HIMSELF.

"Who has delivered us FROM THE POWERS OF DARKNESS,


and hath TRANSLATED US INTO THE KINGDOM OF HIS DEAR SON."
Colossians 1:13

Again we find a reference to DARKNESS. For the one who has undergone true and
authentic rebirth. HE HAS BEEN TRANSLATED FROM THE KINGDOM AND
DOMINION OF SATAN, OVER TO THE KINGDOM OF JESUS CHRIST. We find the
same concept: FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT, FROM NATURAL LOVE TO DIVINE
AGAPE LOVE. The word "translated" is "methistemi" and it means TO TRANSFER,
TO CARRY AWAY, TO REMOVE, TO EXCHANGE. By what method does God
transfer us, carry us out of, remove us from or exchange us INTO THE KINGDOM OF
HEAVEN? We already know the answer: A LOVE TRANSFER, A LOVE CHANGE,
THE UPROOTING OF PHILEO LOVE AND THE BESTOWMENT OF AGAPE
LOVE.

At physical birth we are born in sin, or to word it another way, we are born in darkness.
We have only the natural PHILEO love within us. Satan holds dominion over our minds,
our hearts,our world. He is invisible, but he is there and in control. The only method
Christ gave us to come to the LIGHT OF AGAPE LOVE is via the strait gate and narrow
way. THIS IS THE METHODOLOGY GOD USES, FOR IT BRINGS US TO THE
TRUTH OF PURE AGAPE LOVE.

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,


A PECULIAR PEOPLE;
that ye should shew forth the praises of HIM WHO CALLED YOU

OUT OF DARKNESS

INTO THE MARVELOUS LIGHT(AGAPE LOVE). I Peter 2:9

Notice that God calls His people peculiar. Why? Because they have this mysterious
AGAPE LOVE DWELLING WITHIN THEM. They were called OUT OF THE
DARKNESS AND INTO THE LIGHT OF PURE AGAPE. There is then a
TRANSITION OR A TRANSLATION FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT. Jesus simply
called it BEING BORN AGAIN. The vast majority of Christians, and all the rest of
mankind REFUSE TO COME TO THE LIGHT, THEY REFUSE TO BE JUDGED BY
THE AGAPE LOVE STANDARD. THEY WILL NOT COME OUT OF DARKNESS.
They abide in darkness because they reject the counsel AND THE REPROOF OF GOD.

"But he that hateth his brother is in DARKNESS

AND WALKETH IN DARKNESS,

AND KNOWETH NOT WHITHER HE GOETH,

BECAUSE THE DARKNESS HAS BLINDED HIS EYES.


I John 2:11

The word 'darkness' in all these verses is "skotis" and it means SHADINESS OR
OBSCURITY. The root of the word is "skia" and it means SHADE OR DARK, OR
DARKNESS OF ERROR. In other words, mankind lives under A TOTAL
DECEPTION, A DELUSION. HE LIVES IN SPIRITUAL ERROR, AND HE DOES
NOT REALISE THAT HE IS GOING INTO ETERNAL DAMNATION. He does
not know where he is going. He has no idea of the horrible fate that awaits him. He is
utterly OBLIVIOUS TO THE REALITY OR NATURE OF HELL. He has within him
A VAIN HOPE that if he is good, and tries to do good in his life, that he will somehow
avoid this terrible fate. That is exactly what Satan wants him to think. Satan does not
deceive man into eternal ruin because he wants company, he does it because HE HATES
JESUS CHRIST AND CANNOT STAND TO LOSE SOULS TO JESUS CHRIST.

If man cannot see where he is going, then we could say he is BLIND We have come full
circle. SPIRITUAL DEATH BROUGHT BLINDNESS AND MAN WALKS IN
UTTER DARKNESS, and has no concept of his eternal life. Many people die saying
they have no quarrel whatever with God. They never profess any belief in Christ, they
never profess any of the testimony the Bible requires. They shut their eyes in death only
to be rudely awakened to their REAL FATE. It dawns on their souls TOO LATE THAT
THEY WERE DECEIVED, AND UNDER A RANK DELUSION. In life they had too
much to do to bother reading the Bible. They could not be bothered to study it, to
determine if any of what it said was true. THEY FIND OUT THE HARD WAY IT WAS.

" The LORD OPENETH THE EYES OF THE BLIND:


The LORD raiseth them that are BOWED DOWN, the LORD LOVETH THE
RIGHTEOUS;
Psalm 146:8

"The eyes of THE BLIND SHALL BE OPENED, and the


EARS OF THE DEAF SHALL BE UNSTOPPED. Isaiah 35:5
"And I WILL BRING THE BLIND by A WAY they knew not:

I WILL LEAD THEM IN THE PATHS', THAT THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN:
I WILL MAKE DARKNESS LIGHT BEFORE THEM

AND CROOKED THINGS STRAIGHT. These things will I do unto them,


AND I WILL NOT FORSAKE THEM.
Isaiah 42 :16

Please read this very carefully. Let the impact of what is being said really sink in to your
mind. In this verse we have a reference to BLINDNESS, DARKNESS, AND A WAY
THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT, AND THIS WAY LEADS TO LIGHT. Is that not
what Jesus Christ stated in Matthew Seven? Did he not INSIST that there was only one
WAY? That was via A STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY. We will find that this
reference to a way is the narrow way, something God laid down long before Christ came
upon the scene to VERIFY IT.

"Having their UNDERSTANDING DARKENED,

being ALIENATED FROM THE LIFE(AGAPE LOVE) OF GOD

THROUGH THE IGNORANCE THAT IS IN THEM,

BECAUSE OF THE BLINDNESS OF THEIR HEART"


Ephesians 4:16

Now we are getting very close to the matter. SATAN DARKENS THEIR
UNDERSTANDING, and natural man is ALIENATED FROM THE AGAPE LOVE
OF GOD, WHICH IS THE LIFE OF GOD. The word 'alienated is 'apallotrioo' which
root is "apo" and it means ESTRANGED, SEPARATED, CUT OFF, SEVERED, NOT
WITH, A STRANGER, A NON PARTICIPANT. In short, they do not HAVE OR NO
ANYTHING about the agape love of God which is in Christ Jesus. They are blind in their
heart, there is an actual and literal DARKNESS AND BLINDNESS TO AGAPE LOVE.
The vast majority of Christians were IN LIKE MANNER. THEY DID NOT HAVE ANY
REAL AWARENESS OF TRUE AGAPE LOVE. They manufactured a theology that told
them they had it. They were IGNORANT. THEY KNEW NOT.

This is another proof of the ABSOLUTELY BLIND AND DARKENED CONDITION


OF THE NATURAL FALLEN HUMAN SPIRIT OR HEART. The fall brought total and
complete alienation from agape love. Man lives in utter rebellion, and although Christ
reconciled God to man, man refuses to reconcile himself to God. He WILL NOT enter the
STRAIT GATE and HE WILL NOT WALK THE NARROW WAY. Instead he devises all
forms of religions and methods to BYPASS THE CROSS OF CHRIST, TO BYPASS
THE REPROOF AND REBUKE OF ALMIGHTY GOD.

"In whom, THE GOD OF THIS WORLD (SATAN)

has BLINDED THE MINDS

OF THEM WHICH BELIEVE NOT

LEST THE LIGHT(AGAPE LOVE) OF THE GLORIOUS GOSPEL OF CHRIST,


WHO IS

THE IMAGE OF GOD

should shine unto them" 2 Corinthians 4:4

This is yet another proof of the REALITY OF SATAN AND HIS TOTAL DOMINION
OVER THE MIND OF MAN. It is literal and it is real. Satan is called the GOD OF THIS
WORLD, and mankind worships Satan by means of their many religions , which
mankind says, ALL LEAD TO THE SAME GOD. They are correct: THEY ALL LEAD
TO SATAN. THEY ALL LEAD TO THE GOD OF THIS WORLD. They all lead to
eternal ruin and complete eternal loss. The God of this world is NOT the God of the
universe. Mankind bows down to SATAN AND CALLS HIM GOD. THE TRUE GOD
THEY REFUSE TO WORSHIP, THEY REFUSE TO COMPLY WITH HIS DEMANDS,
AND THEY HATE HIM AND IT SHOWS BY THEIR HOSTILITY TOWARDS THE
TRUE GOSPEL OF THE STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY.

Mankind then, because of the fall, because of his loss of divine agape love. IS IN TOTAL
TO SATAN. HE IS A SLAVE TO AN INVISIBLE FORCE, A MYSTERY HE CANNOT
FATHOM. HE IS LEAD INTO DEATH AND ETERNAL RUIN. His one chance of
escape, his one option to be made free he tosses aside with the wave of an angry hand. So
also do the majority of Christians. If you approach them with the concept of the STRAIT
GATE AND NARROW WAY, they become instantly hostile, for God is not within them,
it is Satan that is their true Father, and HIM THEY WILL FOLLOW, AND HIM THEY
WILL SERVE.

"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he(Jesus) also
himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might DESTROY
HIM THAT HAD THE POWER OF DEATH, THAT IS THE DEVIL (SATAN)

AND DELIVER THEM WHO THROUGH FEAR OF DEATH

WERE ALL THEIR LIFETIME SUBJECT TO ."


Hebrews 2:14-15

All mankind is under the of Satan and of death. There is one that came to deliver you and
I. He told you what you must do to be delivered. He told you about the strait gate and
narrow way. He told you to be obedient. He warned you that if you refused to "keep His
sayings", that if you refused to obey, YOU WOULD NOT BE DELIVERED. We all
live in darkness, we all live in PHILEO LOVE LAND. THE LAND OF RELATIVE
RIGHTEOUSNESS. We have been told that we must lay hold of DIVINE AGAPE
LOVE, IF WE ARE TO BE SAVED

The fall of man was real. Spiritual death was real. Spiritual death resulted in the agape
love of God being removed from man, who now walks in spiritual darkness and who is
blind to the light of agape love. Alive in the flesh he is dead to God in the spirit. He must,
if he is to enter heaven's gate, LAY HOLD OF THIS AGAPE LOVE ESSENCE Christ
is the holder of agape love. WE MUST ALL COME TO HIM ON HIS TERMS. WE
MUST BOW TO AGAPE LOVE. FOR IT WILL NOT BOW TO US. We must find out
all we can about what Christ means by BEING BORN AGAIN, what He means by THE
STRAIT GATE AND NARROW WAY. OUR ETERNAL DESTINY HANGS UPON
OUR CORRECT UNDERSTANDING OF IT, AND THEN BECOMING OBEDIENT
TO THE DEMANDS.
