We Have One Sole Mission:
TO DO THE GREATEST COMMISSION IN ALL THE HISTORY OF THE
WORLD

T
his 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 nation-states. 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 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 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. 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).

5
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, (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 11:11, 12, 13, 18;
15:16; Eph. 3:6; 2 Tim. 1:11; Luke 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 3:21-8; 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

vi
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, (Matt. 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,
(Matt. 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, (Matt. 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

vii
that Christ the Son of God has commanded us. (Mat
28:19-20; Lk 24:47).

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, (Matt. 22:7; Mk. 12:30, 33; Lk. 10:27).

That we sincerely teach, and continually practice THE


WAY TO LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR AS WE LOVE
OURSELVES, (Matt. 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,
(Matt. 6:33; Mark 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 childen, and the hearts of
the chlldren 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 Peter
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.

viii
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 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; Mark 14.26; Eph 5.19; Col 3:16; Jas 5:13).

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, (Matt 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.

Golden Scroll Series XLVII - GO, FEED THE CHURCH OF GOD

PREFACE
The planet earth has 6 continents.

There dwells on its surface of land mass spread calculated as


six billion three hundred million human beings, and growing
and increasing rapidly, daily, flesh and blood, born of woman.
They are mortals. Measurable in their capabilities. Limited in
their capacities. Finite in their abilities. Of course, they do not
believe that, being naturally proud. In their own eyes, they are
invincible. Capable in doing anything they set out their minds
to do.

Having sent out into outer space astronauts, and cosmonauts,


having seen them walk out there into the void,
they have become smug. Self-sufficient. And finally, having
seen one of their own, representing them as it were, walk on
the moon, they felt, vicariously, like they were, indeed, as little
gods!

To keep all these mortals alive, and kicking, so to speak, they


must be fed. To keep them energetic, full of vitality and
enthusiasm, they must be nourished by food. By water. By air.
To keep them sustained, as to maintain the same energy with
all its attendant human-power generating life-force, they must
be fed. Fundamentally, and basically, with three square meals

15
a day. This is a given, the rule for every man and woman,
observed throughout the earth.

And so it goes.

When God created mankind from the dust of the earth, and
first placed the first two human beings in a garden in the
Garden of Eden, He gave to them the Original Divine Mandate,
(Gen 1:26-31).

He gave them the resources of herbs, plants, citrus, clean


animals, and fish. “Unto you,” He declared, “they shall be for
food,” In a later written revelation to the people of Israel whom
He had raised and chosen to be a model nation to the rest of
the world as one who would live by His Word, Will, and Way,
and to do His Work, He promulgated the Laws of Clean and
Unclean meat derived from clean and unclean animals. As the
Creator, He knows what is good for man. And He knows what
is bad, even poisonous, or not good, for man. It is called
abomination in the Holy Bible. Man thinks otherwise. And so
does otherwise, and eats accordingly. It is, in most parts of the
world, civilized or uncivilized, gourmet. Even delicacy.

They are written for all to read, see, think about, believe, and
thereby, practice and live by, or EAT BY, in the book of Leviticus
11:1-47, and reconfirmed in the book of Deuteronomy 14:1-21.

All of these are for the physical sustenance of the material,


physical body. The human body, is now known to compose
both of chemicals and water with a measured quantity and
ratio. It is said that in today’s monetary worth, the chemical
composition is about US$16.50, counting for inflation.

16
To the God of Heaven, who called out a people in the last days
to be His own, holy, and undefiled, (Deut 7:6: 14:2, 21; 26:19;

28:9; Isa 62:12; Dan 8:24; 12:7; Rom 1:1; 1 Cor 3:17, 34;
Eph 1:4; 5:27; Col 1:22; 3:12; Rev 22:11), He wills that His holy
ones eat not any abominable thing. He had His Son, the Lord
Jesus Christ, who sits by His right Hand on His Throne in the
Heaven, to chose them, who will be called His elect, (Mt 24:31;
Mk 13:27; Rom 8:33; Col 3:12; 1 Pet 1:2). To these who know
the Truth, (1 Tim 4:3), He ordained that they should be fed with
the pure truths of God. That they ought to be nourished
from the true doctrines of Jesus Christ. That they
must be sustained with the Bread of Life, and the Living
Waters, by the Word, which are Spirit, and are Life.

The Lord Jesus Christ calls them “My lambs. My sheep. His
little flock, (Jn 3.27; 3.14; 21:21:16, 17; Lk 12:32).

The world’s leaders, who God has allowed to be His ministers*


to keep order in the interregnum, (Rom 13:5, Strong’s # 3011,
Gk: leitourgos*, a public servant, functionary) before the Lord
Jesus Christ is sent back to earth to take over the Throne of
the Kingdom of God, as King of kings, and Lord of lords, (Acts
3:21), their top priority is to see to it that all the peoples in
their watch, administration, and governance, are fed. If they
fail, the result would be terrible food riots on the streets, and
the fearsome sight of blood flowing. Murder. Mayhem.
Uncontrollable, as it did in Argentina not far back as a result of
that government’s default in its international monetary
obligations, and caused run-away inflation, and a financial
crisis of the first magnitude.

17
The Holy Scriptures, in the New Testament, reveal that the
Eternal Creator God’s primary concern is the welfare and well
being of the Lambs of Christ, ( Jn 17:16-26), even as He wills
them to be in good health, physically, and in material
prosperity, (3 Jn 2), and living the abundant life. (Jn 10:10).
Thereby the true servants of the Lord are exhorted, yea, they
are commanded by the Lord Himself, to FEED THE CHURCH OF
GOD, IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.

This Golden Scroll Series XLVII is the spiritual blueprint to


perfectly guide those that were ordained by Him to do so It is
not a frozen set of guidelines but will keep growing by way of
being magnified in their true spiritual meaning and purpose.
“Grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ,”(2 Pet 3:18) is its animating principle, and
thereby is Spirit-directed throughout. It can be no less. They,
the Lord’s servants, can not, by virtue of this inspired
revelation, instructions, exhortations, admonitions, doctrines,
ever have an excuse to fail, or fall out, from doing so.

So it is written. So must it be done.

GOLDEN SCROLL SERIES XLVII – GO, FEED THE
CHURCH OF GOD

Listen,
World of Mortals . . .
GOD Speaks!

Golden Scroll Series XLVII

GO,
FEED THE CHURCH
OF GOD
“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock,
over the which the Holy Spirit hath made you overseers,
to feed the Church of God which he hath purchased with
His own blood,” (Acts 20:28).

19
Why did the Lord Jesus Christ
command His apostles and His
disciples to feed His lambs?

What must His servants feed the


Church of God?
How are they going to sustain the
Body of Christ?
How are you going to help them
bear the very fruit
Christ desires them to have?

20
GOLDEN SCROLL SERIES XLVII – GO, FEED THE
CHURCH OF GOD

Part I

FEED MY LAMBS
John 21:15-17
15. So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He
saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He
saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

16. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of


Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou
knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

17. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas,
lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto
him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him,
Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee.
Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep

The Lord Jesus Christ was very particular in His


care and concern for the Church of God, (Jn
17:2-26).
The Church which He established and founded
upon Himself, the Rock, (1 Cor 10:4)
The Church is His spiritual body., (Col 1:18).
He is the Head of the Church of God, (Col 1:18).

21
He named it after the Name of God the Father,
(John 17:12).
In twelve places in the New Testament Scriptures
He inspired the name of the Church would be
placed 12 times, (Jn 17:11; Acts 20:28; 1 Cor
1:2; 10:32; 11:16, 22; 15:9; 2 Cor 1:1; Gal 1:13;
1 Thess 2:14; 2 Thess 1:4; 1 Tim 3:5, 15).

The number 12 is the number that symbolizes perfect


organization.

Christ started to organize His Church with 12


apostles.

He will rule from Jerusalem in the New World to


Come assisted by 144,000 kings, and priests, (12 x
12,00).

WHY FEED THE CHURCH?

 The Church of God is a spiritual body, (I Cor


10:17, 27; Col 3:15)
 It is a living spiritual organism, (Eph 3:6; 4:4).
 Yes, the church has many members, (I Cor
12:14).

And they are flesh and blood. They are mortals. They
are human beings, born of woman. Heirs of God while yet
in the flesh. The children of light, (Eph 5:8).

One day, they must be born again. Born again into


spirit. Born again into the Family of God. From being

22
mankind, they must be of the God-kind,(John 3:1-8). Then,
they become inheritors. As joint-heirs with Christ, they
will inherit the universe, (Rom 8:12).

THIS IS ONE OF THE GREAT MYSTERIES OF GOD.

That the Church of God is like unto an embryo in the


womb. Every member therein are also like one. An embryo
must be nourished in its mother’s womb. Every member in
the spiritual Body of Christ must be nourished and sustained
spiritually. If not, that embryo withers and dies. It aborts. In
its spiritual journey from baptism and spiritual begettal in the
faith towards God, (Heb 6:1),{1st phase}, and in the next
2nd phase, in its continuing spiritual journey into God,
(Jn 17:21). it could turn left, or it could turn right. It is in
motion, but just going thru the motions. It could veer
sidewards from that journey, off-center, away from the Lord
Jesus Christ. And when it does, it becomes like a twig that
withers. It tries to be self-nourishing. With self-wisdom, and
self-righteousness. It tries to attain self-generated faith, that
abounds in the world outside of the spiritual Body of Christ.

THE WORLD OF THE LIVING, WALKING DEAD

In times past before they became members, they were


part and parcel in every way and manner of the world. They
were active, living participants in the ways of the world. The
world, the system that exists and continues to carry on under
the total control, influence, and sway of man’s sworn
adversary, Satan the devil, the wicked adversary. And

23
assisted by his legions of invisible spirit demons, all wicked
and evil. All the members of the Church of God were at
one time in their past, without hope and without God in
the world.

Ephesians 2:12

That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the
commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of
promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

They were dead in sins, (Col 2:13), hence they were the
living walking dead. Yet they carried within them a world of
spiritual baggage. They accumulated all these, and kept
accumulating in their being unconverted, secular,
materialistic, carnal state thru weeks, months, years,
decades, of absorbing, like a dry sponge. all the untruths,
half-truths, seductive folk wisdom and folklore, superstitions,
all the fables, the myths, the legends, mysticism, occult
practices, the entrenched godless ideologies, the “isms”, the
philosophies. It became their world-view. All of these must
be cleansed out from their minds.

HINDERED LIKE THE REST: BLOCKED BY THE


HABITFORCE OF FAILURES

The force of wrong habits, like the earth’s gravity,


weighed them down. Repeated failures, became repeating
habits of failures, brought by wrong concepts, and strong
beliefs, they swore to, and lived by, held them back. All of it.
were negative forces that weighed them down in every living

24
daylight from which they never seemed able to recover from.
Their nights for rest were replete with fears and nightmares.
The world of the around, and the people around which they
move, are weighed down by the same forces of failure, and
they are influenced by them. Their attachments to them add
to their unperceived burdens that are constantly pulling them
down. Dragging them sidewards at every turn. They are
easily persuaded by those who appear to have superior
knowledge, who in themselves are abject failures in the
things that really matter. They are trapped in their trust in
men who are untrustworthy. They are bamboozled by their
own feelings of inadequacy and insecurity into becoming
fawning followers of hypocrites, and parasites.

BLOCKAGES EXCISED AND REMOVED FIRST

And because they must be cleansed of and from all of


these, they needed to be replaced and imbued with the
pure knowledge of God’s Will. Patiently fed and sustained
with God’s pure, unvarnished, Word. They must be
consistently taught to walk on God’s straight and narrow
Way.

PROCESS OF TRAINING AND PREPARATION IS


CRUCIAL

They must be prepared and trained to do their assigned


role in the Great Work of God. Emptied vessels, the Holy
Spirit must then fill them up. They must be given the
continued supply of the Spirit of Christ, thru them

25
asking God by fervent prayer with all
supplications.

WATERED, AS IT WERE, TO INSURE


SUCCESSFUL FRUITION

Now, they must be nurtured, that they may “continue in the


faith grounded and settled, and be not moved from the
hope of the gospel. which is under heaven,….”(Col 1:23).

26
GOLDEN SCROLL SERIES XLVII – GO, FEED THE CHURCH
OF GOD

Part II
THEY ARE THE CALLED-OUT
ONES TO BE CHOSEN BY
CHRIST, AND MADE INTO HIS
ELECT

(“Many are called, but few are chosen,


(Mat 2o:16; 22:14).
Here is the inner world
of the believers and
practitioners of the Way,
(Acts 19:9, 23), in the Faith once delivered to the saints, (Jude 3),
who were first called Christians in Antioch, (Acts 11:26; 26:23; ), and
exhorted by the apostle Peter to endure suffering as such, (1 Pet 4:16).

A secret society it is not. A secret order of initiates and ascended


masters it is neither. It is not an assemblage of the “illuminated” New
Age gurus, disciples, and followers. The Church of God IS NOT a
27
spiritual body ever remotely CONNECTED, not by an iota, with the
Transcendental Meditators., nor Levitators. They never empty their
priceless minds to practice Yoga to reach Nirvana. The world out there
in the biggest, largest, cults, who are garbed in purple vestures with
Bible-sounding terminologies, and speak softly and purr with soothing
words to the accompaniment of trembling organ music, like to throw
back the despised word: the True Church of GOD, the churches of Christ,
is a cult!

Nothing in the Church of God is a dark, hidden, secret. The priceless


Truths of God, and the glorious wonders of God’s Mysteries were never
meant to be kept by the initiates. Neither to be guarded by the the elites.
Nor kept close to the breast by the self-appointed guardians of some
religious icon, or statuary. Not anything to be defended by the tested
knights.

They were not to be couched in carved stone symbols and etched in


geometric configurations, and imbued with strange, mysterious mystic
powers, and hidden from the ordinary laymen. For then they become
carved idols forbidden by God, for they can become habitat for demon
manifestations.

GOD’S GLORIOUS TRUTHS are all for sharing. They are all for reaching
out to every man, woman, child, aged and young together, peasant, poor,

28
wealthy, and rich, simple and learned. The liberating splendor and
wonder of TRUE SALVATION, spoken with trumpets on the rooftops in
the Proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

The apostle Paul, Christ’s chosen apostle to the Gentiles, spoke of this
before King Agrippa when he was tried:

26 “For the king knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak
freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him:
FOR THIS THING WAS NOT DONE IN A CORNER,’ (Acts 26:26).
The word church as written in the Bible came from the
Greek word ecclesia (Strong’s # 1577- religious congregation,
assembly, called-out ones, saints on earth).

When they heard and read of the Gospel of the


Kingdom of God, they believed it.

They were convicted by the power of the Gospel.


They received the faith to believe. They repented of their
sins. They accepted Christ as their personal savior and
His precious blood for the remission of their sins.

They were washed clean, pure and white as snow when


they were baptized, immersed in water symbolizing the
death and burial of the old man in them. When they rose
out of that water they were laid hands-on.

29
They rose into the newness of life emptied of all the
dirt and filth of sin. Their minds were made ready to receive
spiritual knowledge, that they may grow in grace and in the
knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. For they were
redeemed from the penalty of death for their sins of the
past, And now they are sanctified, set apart for God’s
holy use and sacred purpose. For now they are justified
by His death and resurrection. To live by the faith of
Christ in them, not their own self-generated faith. For
now, they are God’s purchased possession.

THESE ARE WONDERFUL MIRACLES OFTEN TAKEN


FOR GRANTED AND NOT APPRECIATED FOR WHAT
THEY TRULY ARE ABOUT.

2 Peter 3:18 – “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of


our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now
and for ever. Amen.”

9b Motivate them “to desire that they might be filled with the
knowledge of God’s Will in all wisdom and spiritual
understanding;

10 That they may walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing,
being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the
knowledge of God;

11 That they may be strengthened with all might, according


to God’s glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering
with joyfulness;

30
12 That they will be giving thanks unto the Father, which
hath made us (you) meet to be partakers of the inheritance
of the saints in light,” (Col 1:9-12).

APOSTLE PETER SHOWS HOW TO LIVE WITH A


GOD-LIKE MIND, HENCE A GODLY LIFE, (2 Pet
1:2-,8, 10):

2 “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the


knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.

3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things


that pertain into life and godliness through the knowledge of
him that hath called us to glory and vrtue:

4 Where are given unto us exceeding great and precious


promises that by these ye might be partakers of the
divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in
the world through lust.

5 And beside this, giving all diligence,

add to your faith virtue,

and to virtue knowledge,

6 And to knowledge, temperance; and to

Temperance, patience;
and to patience, godliness;

31
7 And to godliness, brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness, charity;

8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they


make you that ye shall neither be barren, nor
unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus
Christ.

10 Whether the rather, brethren, give diligence


to make your calling and election sure, for if ye
do these things, ye shall never fail.

WHO WILL FEED THEM


WITH SPIRITUAL
KNOWLEDGE?
In the above referenced scripture, John 21:15-17, the
Lord Jesus Christ, the head of the Church, the High Priest,
the Author and True Finisher of the Faith, the Captain of
Salvation gave the authority and designation as to who will
feed His Church.

The apostle Peter and the other original eleven


apostles were personally chosen by Jesus Christ to be
His disciples.

He approached them personally and told them directly to


follow Him and He would make them fishers of men. He
trained them personally for three and one half years until the
day when their training was finished, and then He was
crucified.

They were witnesses to His crucifixion. They were


personally told by Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, the

33
mother of James that He was risen from the grave,(Mat
28:1-10; Mk 16:1-8). They personally met Him, the risen
Lord, and they had meeting with Him before He ascended to
Heaven. They received power through the Holy Spirit
and they manifested by signs and wonders the
confirmation of their authority to feed the Church of God.

The same is true of Saul, the Pharisee. The Lord Jesus


Christ personally chose him on the road to Damascus, the
book of Acts reveal the factual story. Christ changed his
name to Paul. And made him an apostle, to bring the Gospel
to the Gentiles:

15 “But the Lord said unto him, ‘Go thy way, for he is
chosen unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles,
and kings, and the children of Israel: 16 For I will show
him how great things he must suffer for my name’s
sake,”(Acts 9:15-16).

Acts 22:5-21

5. As also the high priest doth bear me witness, and all the estate of the
elders: from whom also I received letters unto the brethren, and went to
Damascus, to bring them which were there bound unto Jerusalem, for to
be punished.

6. And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh
unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great
light round about me.

34
7. And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul,
Saul, why persecutest thou me?

8. And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am
Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.

9. And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid;
but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me.

10. And I said, What shall I do, LORD? And the Lord said unto me,
Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things
which are appointed for thee to do.

11. And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the
hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus.

12. And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good
report of all the Jews which dwelt there,

13. Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive
thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him.

14. And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou
shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the
voice of his mouth.

35
15. For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen
and heard.

16. And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away
thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

17. And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even
while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;

18. And saw him saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out
of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.

19. And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every
synagogue them that believed on thee:

20. And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was
standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them
that slew him.
THE APOSTLE PAUL’S MAIN JOB, AS CHRIST
DIRECTED

21. And he said unto me, “Depart: for I will send thee far
hence unto the Gentiles.”

The Lord Jesus Christ trained the apostle Paul on the


desert of Saudi Arabia as He trained the 12 apostles.

36
THE TWELVE APOSTLES MAIN JOB, AS CHRIST
DIRECTED

The 12 apostles were directed not to go to the Gentiles.


Their job was to go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Matthew 10:5-6:

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.

6. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”


The apostle Paul had a specific job to do. His was to
be the apostle to the Gentiles.

What are they going to feed the Church of God?

The Lord Jesus Christ told them to teach all things


that He had commanded them to do.

”Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:


and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen,”
(Mat 28:20).
The same is true with the apostle Paul.

37
The same is true with, and of, those that the Lord Jesus
Christ has chosen to feed the flock in the 21st Century:

13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

WHAT TO FEED THE BABES-
IN-CHRIST?
First: Beware of the modern day Pharisee resources
of religious knowledge and doctrines:

8 “This people draweth nigh unto me with their


mouth, and honoureth me with their lips. But their
heart is far from me.

9 But in vain do they worship me, teaching for


doctrines the commandments of men,” (Mat 15:8-9;
Mk 7:7).

8 “BEWARE lest any man spoil you through


philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of
men, after the rudiments of the world, and NOT
after Christ,” (Col 2:8).

16 “LET NO MAN THEREFORE JUDGE YOU in


meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of
the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: (Col 2:16)
44
{LET NO UNCONVERTED PERSON OUTSIDE OF
THE CHURCH OF GOD JUDGE YOU WHEN YOU
DISTINGUISH BETWEEN CLEAN AND UNCLEAN
MEATS FOR FOOD, OR WHEN YOU OBSERVE
THE NEW MOON, OR OBSERVE AND KEEP THE

SANCTIFIED, (SET APART FOR HOLY USE IN
THE HUMAN BODY WHICH IS THE TEMPLE OF
THE HOLY SPIRIT, (1 Cor 3:16), THAT WHICH IS
CLEAN FOR FOOD.

UNCLEAN THINGS TOUCH NOT

16 “What agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For


ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, ‘ I will
dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and
they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye


separate, saith the Lord, and TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN
THING: and I will receive you,” (2 Cor 6:16-17).

45
1 “Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the
latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving
heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience


seared with a hot iron;

3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain


from meats, which God hath created to be received

with thanksgiving of them which BELIEVED and


KNOW THE TRUTH.

4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to


be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving; FOR
IT IS SANCTFIED BY THE WORD OF GOD AND

Hebrews 6

1. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let


us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of
repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
2. Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and
of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment
The above scriptures guides
those who will feed the Church of
God.

New born spiritual babes-in-Christ must be fed


with spiritual milk.

They must go through the paces to begin with


imparting fundamental knowledge comprising of the
48
doctrines of the faith, and the beginnings of the
body of beliefs. They have to be gently nourished
with care, (Heb 5:12-14).

They must understand how to correct gently.


Prudently. Circumspectly. Even diplomatically. Yet,
the firmness of authority must not be lost, and deftly
handled, (READ THE EXAMPLE OF PAUL
DEALING WITH PHILEMON, {Ph vs 1-25}). The
tendency of new converts is to be puffed-up and
feel exalted when they receive spiritual knowledge.
They must not begin to think that they are or have
become spiritual giants. It takes time, the process
of time in nourishing the young ones in the Church
of God. It takes all the patience, understanding and
gentleness. Learn from the literal shepherds of
sheep.

They must take care not to offend the young


ones.

Christ warned that they are better hanged with a


millstone on their neck and cast into the sea than to
offend these little ones.2 “It were better for him
that a millstone were hanged about his neck,
and be cast into the sea, than that he should
offend one of these little ones,” (Luke 17:2)

49
Those who would feed the Church of God would
know when the time is ripe to feed them with
spiritual meat. And over time see that they have
learned to be mature and ready.

Apostle Peter counseled:

11 “If any man speak , let him speak as the oracles of


God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability
which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified
through Jesus Christ; to whom be praise and dominion
for ever and ever. Amen,” (1 Pet 4:11).
Hebrews 5:12

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need


that one teach you again which be the first principles of the
oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk,
and not of strong meat.
Hebrews 5:14

50
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even
those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to
discern both good and evil.
That will be time that the apostle Paul describes
to Timothy to teach other men that they may teach
others.

2 Timothy 2:2

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses,
the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach
others also.
THEY MUST BE FED WITH FOUNDATIONAL
KNOWLEDGE TO IMBUE THEM WITH THE FEAR
OF THE LORD. FEAR WHICH MEANS
REVERENCE. RESPECT. YIELDEDNESS TO
GOD’S WILL. HUMILITY TO FOLLOW THE
COMMANDMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS OF
GOD. TO REMOVE SELF-WILL AND
SURRENDER EVERY HIGH THING TO THE
OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST, (2 Cor 10:5).

• They must be continually nourished with


spiritual instructions, to receive teachings that

51
will make them “rooted and built in Christ, and
established in the faith, and abounding therein with
thanksgiving,” (Col 2:7).

the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of
the fulness of Christ:

14. That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and


carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and
cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

which is the head, even Christ:

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

 You must have fruits, even as Paul, (Rom 1:13).

 You must have fruit unto holiness, (Rom 6:22).

 You must bear the Fruit of the Spirit, (Gal 5:22).

 The apostle Paul seeks fruit from disciples to


abound to their account, (Phil 4:12).

 Know that the husbandman (God The Father)
seeks’

 If you were sown and planted on good ground,


you will bear good fruit, ( Mat 13:23; Lk 8:8).

 The Living Christ wants His disciples to bear


much fruit,

(Jn 15:8, 16).

 The True Gospel brings spiritual fruit, ( Col 1:6),

 The Wisdom from above will yield for you in your

 You will be filled with fruits of righteousness, if


you do these things, (Phil 1:11).

CHRIST REQUIRES AND SEEKS FOR FRUITS IN HIS


PEOPLE. IF THEY FAIL, HE MERCIFULLY GIVES
THEM A CHANCE TO BEAR FRUIT AND SUCCEED.

BARREN, THEY CAN NOT NOT QUALIFY FOR THE

THE EPISTLES OF PAUL
TEACHES HOW TO FEED
THE CHURCH OF GOD
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good
works,” (2 Tim 3:16-17).

The Church of God was insidiously attacked by


the prophesied apostasy in the 1990’s. The evil
forces of deception and division seemed to prevail,
and conquered, spearheaded by a religious mole, a
sleeper spy. The Work of God was once again,
delayed. Hindered. But, as Christ, the Founder and
Head of His Church decreed: “THE GATES OF

57
HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT,” ( Mat
16:18).

When the Church was scattered, there was a lot of


hurt and division, trauma and shock. Trust was
shattered by the enemy and from within.

Today there are still about 30,000 baptized


members who are scattered throughout the world
who were offended. It is said that they would not
have anything to do with the Church of God.

Who will bring them back? Who will bring


anointing and healing to their spiritual wounds?

Who will feed them? Who will bring them the


“Balm of Gilead?”

In the ancient nation of Israel, in the time of the


prophet Jeremiah, the House of Israel, the House of
Judah, sinned against God. Even as they did the
Lord God pointed to the pastors and shepherds for
the scattering. And He promised healing and help.

Jeremiah 3:12-15

58
12. Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou
backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you:
for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for scattered thy ways
to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the
LORD ever.

13. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the
LORD thy God, and hast.

14. Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you:
and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with
knowledge and understanding.

5 “For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloak of
covetousness; God is witness:

6 Not of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might
have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.

7 But WE WERE GENTLE AMONG YOU, EVEN AS A NURSE CHERISHETH HER


CHILDREN:

8 So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto


you, not the Gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because you were dear
unto us.,” (1 Thess 2:5-8).

shepherds according to God’s own heart to feed them with
knowledge and understanding is going to come to pass. He
will raise these helpers, even as He has raised a number of
them already.

Even as they are going through this process it is seen


that they have found their footing. They have the branches
of the Church of God in the West are doing what they are
supposed to do.

Most surely they are not perfect, but they are doing it.

60
In this time of the 21st Century, the Lord Jesus Christ
raised The Work of God 21st Century to proclaim the
Gospel of the Kingdom of God in the entire Eastern
Hemisphere where most of the Gentiles live and dwell.
Somewhere in the far east, there is a place of 7,000
emerald isles where the Gospel of the Kingdom was
preached unto. The fruit of the work that was done in its
day produced 5,000 baptized members.

that are left today that keep the commandments of God

thou shalt save both thyself and them that hear thee,”(I Tim 4:9-16).

TEACH SOUND DOCTRINE AND WARN AGAINST CONTRARY MINDSETS

Teach sound doctrine from a body of Beliefs drawn from the Holy Scriptures.

Combining both the Old Testament and the New Testament Scriptures, The Old
Testament is to be drawn from as the fountain and foundation of sound doctrinal
teachings. And the New, where they are filled to their real purpose and intent, and
are fully magnified. For they are spoken by the same Eternal Creator God, Rock,
Redeemer, and Saviour. In the Old, God set forth the Code and Letter of the Holy
Law of Love. In the New, He magnified the Law of Love, and made it honourable. In
the New, the Holy Spirit guides, and makes understanding possible.

PART X

WHO ARE THE


SPIRITUALLY
FATHERLESS AND
WIDOWS?
The Lord Jesus Christ disclosed that pure
religion and undefiled before God is to visit the
fatherless and the widows in their afflictions and to
keep oneself unspotted from the world.

The Lord Jesus Christ reveals the deeper


meaning of that exhortation. Visit the spiritual
widows and spiritual orphans. The former are,
evidently, the scattered congregations that have lost
their ministers , their pastors, their spiritual
shepherds, who defected to the apostates. The
latter, are the individual members who were left
confused, and as it were, in spiritual limbo till today.

67
PROFOUND UNDERSTANDING COMES AS A
BLESSING

Even in this, God is revealing the deeper


meaning of the Holy Scriptures to the Work of God -
21st Century. Thus, we are made able, to better
understand the profound symbolisms, metaphors,
allegories and other difficult scriptures.

A key principle is so revealed in I Cor 10:11:

!! “Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are
written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”

The Holy Scriptures, now 66 books of the


approved canon, as prophesied in Isa 8:16:

“BIND UP THE TESTIMONY, SEAL THE LAW AMONG MY DISCIPLES.”,


confirms that they were primarily inspired, written,
and preserved for the believers, practitioners of
the Faith once delivered to the saints, the
followers, and DISCIPLES of the Lord Jesus
Christ in the 21st Century. The whole world, all
mankind, to whom the Gospel of the Kingdom of
God must be proclaimed, comes next.

68
The Work of God – 21st Century finds itself
directed by Christ to bring this visitation to
come to pass.

In the moment, the top and utmost


priority is to feed the Church of God. The
Lord Jesus Christ expressed this care and
concern in His most intimate true Lord’s
Prayer to God the Father, (John 17:6-26).
The servants of Christ Jesus must do no
less.

The apostle Paul taught Timothy to: “Preach the word;


be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering
and doctrine,” (2 Tim 4:2).

The epistles of Paul in the New Testament were


preserved by Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit to
provide resources as their stay, and spiritual
knowledge, as their staff, to feed the Churches of
God that are already in this region of the world and
those that are being called by God the Father. Then
they will come out. Thereafter they are, and will be,
chosen by Jesus Christ. Then joined to His spiritual
body, The Church of God, thru the Holy Spirit, in
the eastern hemisphere.

Part XI
“GREATER LOVE HATH
NO MAN THAN THIS…”
This present generation, that is both living witness and
open-ended participants to its current rages as the
masses’ present, ongoing desires, often think loudly
and come forth speaking out on the streets. “Make love,
not war!” Or their celebrity singing idols endlessly
express in their rock and rap music:”What the world
needs is love!”

To these, love is that emotion of the heart. To many of


these, love is sex. Sex without boundaries, adventurous,
unbridled, wild, experiential experiments. To the
majority, love is the Greek word “eros”. They are also
talking about love in the Greek word: philadelphia,
which translates into brotherly love. This is
commendable and noble. They are sadly, however,
mostly unaware of the deepest meaning of love, as
written in Greek: agape, which is spiritual love, deep
affection, benevolence. And being unaware, and having

70
rejected the knowledge of the mainspring and source
of LOVE, agape, the peoples of the earth are living with,
and by, a glass of water half-empty, and half-full,
figuratively.

To these, the majority, it is that effusive, indefinable


something towards one or the other. And so the planet
earth revolves on its axis, with its inhabitants wishing to
love, yet not quite understanding what love really is.
This is quite a paradox, indeed. It is for this very reason
they cannot really know how to love, more so, how to
love another. And so wars and conflicts rage on in so
many regions on earth. Violence and horrible crimes
are reported daily thru network, and local, regional
radio, newspapers, and television. What of the hidden
physical, verbal abuse and familial, fratricidal physical
violence and horrible crimes inside houses people
euphemistically call their “homes”?

The Lord Jesus Christ, looking into the future when He


was here with His mortal disciples at the Mount of
Olives, while yet in the flesh, sadly proclaimed:

“Because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall


wax cold,” (Mat 24:12). The Lord was talking of love
becoming chilled and frozen inside of His spiritual Body,
the Church of God. For it is they who know the truth of
what TRUE LOVE IS ALL ABOUT.

Knowing this, and now forwarned with foreknowledge,


YOU now must be mentally and emotionally retooled
yourselves.

71
YOU HAVE TO KNOW AND MASTER THE WAY HOW TO
TEACH THE CHURCH OF GOD HOW TO LOVE ONE
ANOTHER. AND IT BEGINS WITH YOU HAVING LOVE
(agape) in your heart and being.

9 “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you:


continue ye in my love;

10 If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My


love; even as I have kept My Father’s commandments,
and abide in His love.

11 These things have I spoken to you, that My joy might


remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

12 This is My commandment, THAT YE LOVE ONE


ANOTHER, AS I HAVE LOVED YOU.

13 GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS, THAT


A MAN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS.

14 Ye are My friends, if ye do whatsoever I command


you.

15 Henceforth I call you not servants: for the servant


knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I HAVE CALLED
YOU FRIENDS; for all things that I have heard of My
Father I have made known unto you.

16 You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and
ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit,

72
and that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever ye
shall ask of My Father in My Name, He may give it to you.

17 These things I command you, THAT YOU LOVE ONE


ANOTHER,” (Jn 15:9-17).

RECAPITULATION
YET, THERE IS THE HIGHEST WISDOM OF ALL

THAT IF THE BROTHERHOOD IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF


FAITH, THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD, THE PILLAR
AND BULWARD OF THE TRUTH, IS INTENSELY
MOTIVATED TO PULL THEMSELVES TOGETHER, AND
DETERMINEDLY CONSOLIDATE ALL THEIR MIND AND
BEING, THEIR ENERGIES AND VIGOR, TO DOING
THEIR ASSIGNED ROLE. TO CHEERFULLY
PERFORMING THEIR APPOINTED TASK IN DOING THE
GREAT WORK OF GOD, THE SERVICE OF FEEDING
THE SHEEP, THE LAMBS OF CHRIST, WOULD BE SO
MUCH LIGHTER.

IT WOULD BE TRULY JOYFUL FOR HIS SERVANTS TO


CARRY OUT AND MIGHTILY DO THE GREATEST TASK
OFALL. THE ULTIMATE UNITY SO LONG SOUGHT WILL
TRULY COME TO PASS. FOR IT IS SPIRITUALLY, AND
PHYSICALLY, BOUND TOGETHER BY ONE

74
SPIRITUAL MISSION: TO
PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL OF
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN
THE ENTIRE EASTERN
HEMISPHERE!

NOW, THEREFORE GO, SERVANTS


AND FRIENDS OF THE LORD JESUS
CHRIST (Jn 15:15), THE HIGH
PRIEST AND GREAT APOSTLE OF
THE FAITH ONCE DELIVERED TO
THE SAINTS…OCCUPY
YOURSELVES JOYFULLY AND
CHEERFULLY IN YOUR
UNREMITTING LABORS OF LOVE TO
FEED THE CHURCH OF GOD!
TAKE HEED, BRETHREN, WHAT THE SPIRIT
SAYS TO THE CHURCHES.

LISTEN, WORLD OF MORTALS . . .
