God's Word. The Truth Will Set You Free. In Depth Bible Truth.
(part 1) In this series of Teachings: I insert words, phrases and sentences into text I have copied form trusted sources. I use many words, I reiterate, I use capital letters, bold and underline words, phrases, sentences and I place some of them in parenthesis. Examples Below. Build "The One True Church" "Unto Father God's Exact Specifications". I realize there is a possibility that some may tire of repeatedly seeing, Build "The One True Church" "Unto Father God's Exact Specifications". I reiterate such phrases as, Build "The One True Church" "Unto Father God's Exact Specifications", for a number of specific, Scriptural reasons. I present Bible Teachings in various ways To Help people To Know and Understand "InDepth" "Bible-Truth". "In-Depth" "Bible-Truth" Is "The Truth That Sets Free" and I want To Help people To Become "Set Free". Things you Need To Know, but they may Not have told you about. Many things in the church and Most things in the world and are Not in-line with "God's Word". I am not so naïve as to think that a few of us can fix everything that is amiss in the church and among mankind on planet earth. Please Pray For Knowledge, Understanding, Wisdom and Study the Scripture References given in this series of Teachings. If you will do as I have asked the Holy Spirit Will Work Together With The Living and Powerful, Active Word of God and Help You To Know and Understand "Bible-Truth". Please do Not misunderstand my Motivation To Teach, Preach, Minister "Bible-Truth". My Motivation To Teach, Preach, Minister "Bible-Truth" Comes From my Love For "Father God", "Christ Jesus", "the Holy Spirit", "God's Word", "God's Church", "The Body of Christ" and people in general. I Truly Want To Help people, Christians and non-Christians, Saved people and unsaved people, To Know, Understand, Embrace, Apply; Benefit From "Bible-Truth". Things they may Not Have Told you. Scripture Declares That God's people Are Being "Destroyed" By Lack of Knowledge of "God's Word". Hosea 4:1-10 Scripture also Declares That God's people Are Being "Set Free" By Knowing, Understanding, Embracing, Applying "God's Word": "Bible-Truth".
John 6:63; 8:31-47; Matthew 7:13-29 Knowing, Understanding, Embracing, Applying "God's Word", "Bible-Truth", "The Word of God's Power", "The Word of Reconciliation", "The Word of Truth", "The Word of Life": "The Truth That Sets Free" Prevents God's people From Being "Destroyed". John 8:31-36; 2 Timothy 2:15; Ephesians 1:13-14; James 1:18; 1 John 1:1; Philippians 2:16; Hebrews 1:1-4(v3); 2 Corinthians 5:17-20(v19) Hosea 4:1-9 (Amplified Bible) 1 Hear the word of the Lord, you children of Israel (God's children) (Israel is a type of the church), for the Lord (God) has a controversy (a pleading contention) with the inhabitants of the land (this applies to America), because there is no faithfulness, no love, no pity and mercy, or (no) knowledge of God [from personal experience with Him] in the land (America). 2 There is nothing but [false] swearing and breaking faith and killing and stealing and committing adultery; they break out [into violence], one [deed of] bloodshed following close on another (this speaks of and to America). 3 Therefore shall the land (America) [continually] mourn, and all who dwell in it shall languish, together with the wild beasts of the open country and the birds of the heavens; yes, the fishes of the sea also shall [perish because of the drought] be collected and taken away. (this warning declares the distinct possibility that America could possible be invaded, infiltrated and taken captive by enemies of Christianity) 4 Yet let no man strive, neither let any man reprove [another--do not waste your time in mutual recriminations], for with you is My contention, O priest. 5 And you shall stumble in the daytime, and the [false] prophet also shall stumble with you in the night; and I will destroy your mother [the priestly nation]. 6 My people (God's people) are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you [the priestly nation] have rejected knowledge, I (God) will also reject you that you shall be no priest to Me; seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children. 7 The more they increased and multiplied [in prosperity and power], the more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame. 8 They feed on the sin of My people and set their heart on their iniquity. 9 And it shall be: Like people, like priest; I will punish them for their ways and repay them for their doings. 10 For they shall eat and not have enough; they shall play the harlot and beget no increase, because they have forsaken the Lord for harlotry; New Testament Scripture Declares. The very same Lying, Murdering devil that Lied To, Enticed, Seduced, Devoured, Destroyed, Murdered God's people in Old Testament Times, Beginning With Eve, Then Adam:
► Still Roams Around, Right Here, Right Now, on planet earth. ► Still Seeks people, Including Christians, a) he Can Lie To, Entice, Seduce, b) So he Can Devour them, Destroy them, Murder them. John 10:10 (Amplified Bible) 10 (Jesus Speaking) The thief (the devil) comes only in order to steal and
kill and destroy.
I (Jesus) came that they may have (life) and enjoy life, and have it (life) in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). John 8:44 (Amplified Bible) 44 (Jesus Speaking to religious people who Reuse To Do As Father God Says) You are of your father, the devil, and it is your will to practice the lusts and gratify the desires [which are characteristic] of your father (the devil).
He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning and (he, the devil) does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him (there is No truth in the devil). When he (the devil) speaks a falsehood, he (the devil) speaks what is natural to him, for he (the devil) is a liar [himself]
(the devil speaks to people; quite often through other people, even religious people, even religious leaders, teachers) (the devil speaks to people; quite often through other people, even religious people, even religious leaders, teachers) (the devil lies to people; quite often through other people, even religious people, even religious leaders, teachers)
and (he the devil is) the father of lies
(the devil lies to people; quite often through other people, even religious people, even religious leaders, teachers)
and (he the devil is the father) of all that is false.
(the devil lies to people; quite often through other people, even religious people, even religious leaders, teachers)
Scripture Declares That the devil SPEAKS to people, quite often through other people. Why is it that in some Christian organizations, yes, some denominations and churches, some of those in leadership Forbid the Holy Spirit To SPEAK To us In the ways Scripture Says He Can and Will SPEAK To us, quite often through other people? John 14:15-18; 15:7-15; 1 Corinthians 12:1-3; 14:36-40; Acts 13:1-12 John 10:10 (Amplified Bible) 10 The thief (the devil) comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I (Jesus) came that they may have and enjoy life, and have (life) it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). 1 Peter 5:5-11 (Amplified Bible) 5 Likewise, you who are younger and of lesser rank, be subject to the elders (the ministers and spiritual guides of the church)--[giving them due respect and yielding to their counsel]. Clothe (apron) yourselves, all of you, with humility [as the garb of a servant, so that its covering cannot possibly be stripped from you, with freedom from pride and arrogance] toward one another. For God sets Himself against the proud (the insolent, the overbearing, the disdainful, the presumptuous, the boastful)--[and He opposes, frustrates, and defeats them], but (He, God) gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble. 6 Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, 7 Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. 8 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. 9 Withstand him (withstand the devil) (stand against the devil); be firm in faith [against his onset-be rooted, be established, be strong, be immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. 10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you. 11 To Him be the dominion (power, authority, rule) forever and ever. Amen (so be it).
Matthew 6:8 (Amplified Bible) 8 (When you Pray) Do not be like them, for your Father (God) knows what you need before you ask Him. James 4:1-10 (Amplified Bible) 1 What leads to strife (discord and feuds) and how do conflicts (quarrels and fightings) originate among you? Do they not arise from your sensual desires that are ever warring in your bodily members? 2 You are jealous and covet [what others have] and your desires go unfulfilled; [so] you become murderers. [To hate is to murder as far as your hearts are concerned.] You burn with envy and anger and are not able to obtain [the gratification, the contentment, and the happiness that you seek], so you fight and war. You do not have, because you do not ask (Pray). [I John 3:15.] 3 [Or] you do (Pray) ask [God for them] and yet fail to receive, because you (Pray) ask (God) with wrong purpose and evil, selfish motives. Your intention is [when you get what you desire] to spend it in sensual pleasures. 4 You [are like] unfaithful wives [having illicit love affairs with the world and breaking your marriage vow to God]! Do you not know that being the
world's friend is being God's enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world takes his stand as an enemy of God .
5 Or do you suppose that the Scripture is speaking to no purpose that says, The Spirit Whom He has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love? 6 But He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully). That is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it). 7 So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you. 8 Come close to God and He will come close to you. [Recognize that you are] sinners, get your soiled hands clean; [realize that you have been disloyal] wavering individuals with divided interests, and purify your hearts [of your spiritual adultery]. 9 [As you draw near to God] be deeply penitent and grieve, even weep [over your disloyalty]. Let your laughter be turned to grief and your mirth to dejection and heartfelt shame [for your sins].
10 Humble yourselves [feeling very insignificant] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up and make your lives significant]. Hebrews 13:5-8 (Amplified Bible) 5 Let your character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] 6 So we take comfort and are encouraged and confidently and boldly say, The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm [I will not fear or dread or be terrified]. What can man do to me? 7 Remember your leaders and superiors in authority [for it was they] who brought to you the Word of God. Observe attentively and consider their manner of living (the outcome of their well-spent lives) and imitate their faith (their conviction that God exists and is the Creator and Ruler of all things, the Provider and Bestower of eternal salvation through Christ, and their leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness). 8 Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages). Psalm 84:11-12 (Amplified Bible) 11 For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord (God) bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. 12 O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning (on You) and believing on You, committing all (to You) and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]! Romans 8:28 (Amplified Bible) 28 We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.
To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Required Most of us Seek "Bible-Truth" Because we Want To Help ourselves To Obtain More Blessings and Greater Blessings. And That Is a Good Thing. That Is Exactly What we Should Do. However, the More "Bible-Truth" we Obtain, the More we Are Held Accountable To Help God's Church, Christians, and mankind in general To Become "Set-Free". James 2:26; 4:17; 5:19-20; Ephesians 5:11 James 2:26 (New King James Version) 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (faith without corresponding Good Works Is Dead, and therefore can Not, will Not, does Not Accomplish Good Things For us) James 4:17 (New American Standard Bible) 17 Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin. James 5:19-20 (New American Standard Bible) 19 My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth and one turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. Luke 12:47-48 (King James Version) 47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he (that servant) that knew not (his lord's will), and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. Ephesians 5:11 (New American Standard Bible) 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 1 John 3:16-24 (Amplified Bible) 16 By this we come to know (progressively to recognize, to perceive, to understand) the [essential] love: that He laid down His [own] life for us; and we ought to lay [our] lives down for [those who are our] brothers [in Him]. 17 But if anyone has this world's goods (resources for sustaining life) and sees his brother and [fellow believer in need, yet closes his heart
of compassion against him, how can the love of God live and remain in him? 18 Little children, let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but (also) in deed (Good Works) and in truth (in practice and in sincerity). 19 By this we shall come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we are of the Truth, and can reassure (quiet, conciliate, and pacify) our hearts in His presence, 20 Whenever our hearts in [tormenting] self-accusation make us feel guilty and condemn us. [For we are in God's hands.] For He is above and greater than our consciences (our hearts), and He knows (perceives and understands) everything [nothing is hidden from Him]. 21 And, beloved, if our consciences (our hearts) do not accuse us [if they do not make us feel guilty and condemn us], we have confidence (complete assurance and boldness) before God,
(our Prayers Will Be Heard and Answered),
22 And we receive from Him whatever we ask, because we [watchfully] obey His orders [observe His suggestions and injunctions, follow His plan for us] and [habitually] practice what is pleasing to Him. 23 And this is His order (His command, His injunction): that we should believe in (put our faith and trust in and adhere to and rely on) the name of His Son Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and that we should love one another, just as He has commanded us. 24 All who keep His commandments [who obey His orders and follow His plan, live and continue to live, to stay and] abide in Him, and He in them. [They let Christ be a home to them and they are the home of Christ.] And by this we know and understand and have the proof that He [really] lives and makes His home in us: by the [Holy] Spirit Whom He has given us. James 1:27 (New King James Version) 27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

Galatians 5:6 (Amplified Bible) For [if we are] in Christ Jesus (Christians), neither circumcision (being a Jew) nor uncircumcision (being a Gentile) counts for anything, but only faith activated (by Love) and energized (by Love) and expressed (by Love and in Love) and working through Love. 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (New American Standard Bible) 1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have Love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have Love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have Love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love is patient, Love is kind and (Love) is not jealous; Love does not brag and (Love) is not arrogant, 5 (Love) does not act unbecomingly; it (Love) does not seek its own, (Love) is not provoked, (Love) does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 (Love) does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but (Love) rejoices with the Truth; 7 (Love) bears all things, (Love) believes all things, (Love) hopes all things, (Love) endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but (then) when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, Love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is Love.

Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” Walk in Wisdom 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
