The WORD pt.3 :

Of Trust

Open to:

Heb_2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

Heb 2:10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Heb 2:11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Heb 2:12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

Heb 2:13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he 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;

Heb 2:15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Heb_2:16 For verily he took not on angels; but he took on the seed of Abraham.

Heb 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

As mentioned here is the seed of Abraham :

Isa_41:8 But thou, Israel, art my servant Jacob, and he whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraam, whom I have loved:

Isa 41:9 whom I have taken hold of from the ends of the earth, and from the high places of it I have called thee, and said to thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and I have not forsaken thee.

When the writer of Hebrews speaks of the seed of Abraham his is speaking of this verse and the context of it. Like the giving of the Word of God to Israel, based upon Gen_15:1 which promised the Word of YHWH God as a reward and a shield of protection to Abraham, Abraham’s seed recieved both the Oracle’s of God as well as the Word made flesh according to the Promise and promises made to their fathers. Our Brother Paul discribes of his brothers and kinsmen according to the flesh

Rom_9:4 Which are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service, and the promises;

Rom 9:5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

It is that when we speak of the Word of God or the Bible we are speaking of Israel’s Scripture, this is part of the Abraham’s promise given as an inheritance, and this is also why we can not speak of the bible with out it’s chosen people coming into focus, and as Paul proclaimed to the Roman’s it is of Israel that Christ came in the flesh.

In the past 2 messages a heavy emphasis has been placed upon the validity, canonicy and perfection of YHWH God’s Word. Citing that from the Creation of Genesis to the time of Christ, overflowing into writing of the Apostles and beyond, the whole of the Message of Scripture is contained in the Manifestation of the Word made flesh, the son of YHWH GOD the Father, the man Jesus Christ.

It is by this understanding given in the entirety of the Testaments of Scripture that we can fully comprehend, if it is possible, the reason for Christ’s coming and the Words manifestation in the flesh. By such emphasis of the person of the Word, the character of Jesus Christ becomes inseparable from the context of Holy Writ, the manifold declarations of both the prophets and the Apostles of Christ’s perfect life by YHWH the Father’s standards, that is by His Law the unanimous impact of the revealed perfection of this Son of God is acknowledged. The fully twined Holy Spirit of the Scripture giving conception to the flesh of Christ is in an of it self comprehensible to our mind, yet the purpose is fully comprehensible, the being which was brought forth as described as the Word made Flesh has a holistic narrative which focused upon the people the Father has been focusing on since YHWH’s choice of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

When John the apostle tells us of Caiaphas the high priest’s prophecy in:

Joh_11:51-52… that Jesus should die for that nation;

Joh 11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

To this, undoubtedly was made in the mention of:

Joh_1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe / Trust on his name:

Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us

A whole context is set for this Word made flesh, an expectation of regathering in one

That while Christ was literally in the flesh for this gathering according to:

Rom_8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

This Sanctification by the received and engrafted Word, sees the same scope the entirety of the Scripture prior spoke of and clearly proclaimed as the focus of the New Covenant:

Consider the literal and realistic verbiage of the New Covenant as found in Heb_8:8 and Jer_31:31 in direct correspondence to this message given by Paul the Apostle fo the Gentiles, namely:

Heb_8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

This is a hard message, the logic of a people of a particular group who responds to the totality of the Word coming in flesh by the life altering reception of Jesu the Christ is Sanctification, and that people are the scope of the Word of Faith/the Word of Trust. That is in the same place the Word of Faith is to tack residence, is the place the Law of God was to take residence, is the place where Christ is to take residence, all of this can not fit in to the heart, mind and soul unless they are all trusted and settled as one Logical message: the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. ( Jas_1:20-25 )

Here is where sola scriptora (only scripture) begins to bear it’s weight, and the ethical response begins to get weighed against the Scriptures in the balance of truth. Is the testimony of Scripture alone truly sufficient to stand as the word of Faith, the word we trust above all else and in opposition to a world which hates it?

Expository Study of Romans ch. 10

Return to Romans 10 and begin to look at the context of the chapter in exposition, showing this reconciliation which MUST be settled to establish Trust or Faith, Belief in the Word of God. (It would do those well who have not recently read Paul’s epistle to the Roman’s to go back and consider the context of this writing before they judge this matter which is to be presented, as well it would do those who are first listening.)

Rom 10:1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

(It is indisputable that Israel is the focus of this chapter, and that of Israel’s salvation.)

Rom_10:2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

Rom_10:3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

Notice how Paul describes Israel, definitionaly, not much different than the Church of today…

What is God’s Righteousness?

Deu_6:25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.

Psa_119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

Just these 2 verses show that Righteousness according to God’s Holy standard is by Righteous Law, His True Law, this is by God’s own standards.

What then are these people of Israel being condemned for? For being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God… Paul is not describing Law keeping, but rather a people who ESTablish their own Justification, there own right-ness! and at that NOT according to knowledge…

What is God’s Knowledge?

Psa_119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

Pro_1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge

This description seems to place knowledge and righteousness as contemporaries to the one who believes, or trusts the commandments, and who fears the LORD YHWH, and who excepts the Law as the truth, and who observes the commadments, that is by a Scripture Alone definition that is if we submit our selves to the righteousness of God and not to our own establishment, these are the answers given by scripture.

Rom_10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one Trusting.

Rom 10:5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.

In the KJV English this verse makes perfect sense with the context we have so far extracted by Scriptural definition, that is as the word implies in it’s standard use, as cited in the Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge commentary “the end: τελος (Telos) [Strong’s G5056], the object, scope, or final cause; the end proposed and intended.”

In other words ‘end’ does not indicate ‘Termination’ or a ‘Finnish’, but rather the goal, yet this verse is often improperly implied by it’s modern understanding in that way. Rather, Christ as the object, scope or final cause was the intention of the Law’s Righteousness, insomuch as Christ did those things and lived in them! It is so for those of us who have Trust, that is that we have received Him as the perfect Christ come in the flesh, we see Him as the end means the whole conclusion of the Law, Christ was the perfection of God’s Law.

Now here is the Word of Faith, this is the very place of the word of Trust!

Rom 10:6 But the righteousness which is of Trust speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

Rom 10:7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

Rom_10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of Trust, which we preach;

This is the place where the context of this whole matter is absorbed into the Revelation of the Word of Trust, a word which Paul teaches from the Law! Here we are called to the context of the Word of God Paul is teaching Israel from to show the context of Roman’s 10 and that is with in the scope of Deuteronomy 30:

An Exposition with in the Exposition

Here is the very context Paul is writing from to his Israelite Brothers and kinsmen in Rome:

Deu_30:1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations (Gentiles), whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,

Deu 30:2 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;

Deu 30:3 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.

Deu 30:4 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:

Deu 30:5 And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.

Deu 30:6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

Deu 30:7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.

Deu 30:8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.

Deu 30:9 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:

Deu 30:10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.

Deu 30:11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.

Deu 30:12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

Deu 30:13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

Deu 30:14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

Deu 30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

Deu 30:16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

Deu 30:17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

Deu 30:18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Deu 30:20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

Back to Romans 10

Rom_10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt Trust in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man Trusts unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Rom_10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever Trusts on him shall not be ashamed.

Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

THE WORD PT.2:

OF BELIFE

(Belief)

For this study have changed the word entirely to believe or belief when quoting from the scripture. Thus every time the the word translated from pist-os, pistue, is seen I shall read Believe or belief regardless of how the English words it.

Rom_10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of Belief, which we preach;

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt Believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man Believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Rom_10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever Believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

The Canon

As was discussed in the last message, our Faith in the Spoken and written Word of YHWH God is of paramount importance, and our understanding as to why the books we call Canon, the word Canon refers to an understanding of a rule as we use the word today, that is a measurement and a rule of law

kan-ohn’ G2583

From κάνη kanē (a straight reed, that is, rod); a rule (“canon”), that is, (figuratively) a standard (of faith and practice); by implication a boundary, that is, (figuratively) a sphere (of activity): – line, rule.

The related root of this common word used in the Biblical realm is found a number of times throughout the scripture, including the Septuagint, where it is generally translated ‘enough, or fitting’ as seen in:

ik-an-os’ G2425

From ἵκω ikō (ἱκάνω or ἱκνέομαι; akin to G2240; to arrive); competent, that is, ample (in amount) or fit…

Thus when we speak of the Canon in Christian usage we are in reference to that which is the rule, both by means of law and by means of measurement. Thus, it is of the very essence of Scripture to measure our Belief by the Scriptures, and to cause our Faith to be ruled by the Scriptures, and to place our Trust in a well fitting order according to the Scriptures.

In understanding that this Canon is canonized solely on account of it’s fitting and ample nature, showing that it’s parts fit together in a holistic fashion, and having the evidence of the combined and unified testimonies of the manuscripts held from antiquity, having the ability to reference and purify our understanding of the will of God by harmonizing the Hebrew and Greek texts of Scriptures and then to view the revelation of God by the foundation established by what YHWH God Him self calls His Law or Torah.

The Law

As prior stated: Genesis gives establishment for the Law and by the Law we may look back at Genesis and in Believing the two as the Word of God we establish our Faith in the practice of those good works there in, proceeding to read and now judge Israel’s actions according in the Histories by the Law, and at times seeing the rebuke or admonition of the Prophet and as well morally establishing the Prophet’s word by the prior established morality of YHWH God’s Law; and by believing in the inspired Nature of the revelation of the Prophet and knowing the very Law the Prophet was Judged by (Deu_13:1-5 as well Deu_18:20-22) both of which tells us that a false prophet is one which either speaks willfully to turn his listeners away from the Law’s and Commandments of God, or if he introduces another God to be served beside or before YHWH, or if the prophet speaks falsely in the Name of YHWH, Deuteronomy 13 and 18 establish the Prophets which have been preserved in our Bible, as well every Preacher is as well to be tried by this same Law of God.

Thus, as the books of the Prophets are validated in our Canon as accepted doctrine we then use the testimony of the Prophet’s and wise men of God to then better understand the Law and Creation knowing that the holy men of old who were moved by the Spirit knew the Law better than our selves, yet we the reader MUST remember that every word in our Bible is only relevant substant-ively to the Law of YHWH God, that is His Judgments of Good and evil.

It is then by this full rule we see God as a vindicated sovereign when he punishes His people Israel by the promised order he adjudged at the revelation of his Law by HIS own mouth to Moses. It is by this Canon that when the time the Covenant Nation of Israel’s judgment according to the holistic testimony: of the house of Israel’s scatter at the Assyria captivity and the house of Judah’s at the Babylonian captivity, as well as Judah’s regathering in the Histories both of the Canon and of the deutero-Canon, the story of a rebellious people of the house of Judah coming home to rebuild a land after there God ordained punishment.

It is then, as well that after we read the prophecies of the prophets books and parallel histories ending in the books of Maccabees do we now have a gimps of the stage our Lord Jesus Christ came upon, to then understand his reason according to the Word of Belief. (If you’ve ever wondered why the history of the Babylonian captivity of the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin with Levi, leaves a large gap unto the time of Christ it’s because you are missing the histories and wisdom of the Deutero-Canon otherwise called the books of the Apocrypha as found in the LXX Scriptures).

To all this the Canon of Scripture attests to a decisive manifestation of the timing of Christ’s coming, in the volume of the book which is Canon by it’s inspiration of the Spirit tying and weaving it’s Word into a collective testament in the manifestation of the Word made flesh, the very purpose for the Law, History, Wisdom and Prophets, all of which was inspired by the breath of the bosom of God which declared the Father by the manifestation of Jesu the Christ the Son of God .

Here, in this summation just given is where the holistic message of the very context of Roman’s 10 has it’s weight.

Paul’s Doctrine

This Word of Belief which we preach is to be in our mouth, settled in our heart to the end as Rom_10:11 states that our belief in the very Word causes us to be unashamed, that is unable to be confounded, and ready to answer for that Belief. This is in the same sense by which we heard Paul’s instruction to Timothy, and in practice of the systematic consistency and belief in the truth of Paul’s word’s we find the whole context of which Paul writes to Timothy:

2Ti_2:25, that: In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

Being ‘not ashamed’ by Belief is put in action, in this readiness is the Word of belief alive in the life accomplishing the functions of the Father, the Spirit and the Word in strict accordance with God’s inspiration as found in Scripture.

Paul further instructed Timothy, not to follow his, Paul’s, teaching’s, doctrines or traditions, but to acknowledge Paul for his very testimony in context:

2Ti_1:3 I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience…

Thus Paul is substant-ively serving The Mighty one of Israel with a pure conscience telling Timothy:

2Ti_3:14 …continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned;

2Ti 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through Belief which is in Christ Jesus.

2Ti_3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

The point Paul is clearly making is that He is calling Timothy to continue in the things he has learned from Paul and His Mother from a child, how to serve the God of their forefathers in a pure conscience, by learning the wisdom of the holy Scriptures which is able to save through the Belief which is in Christ, yet in context with this statement of the residence of this Belief, Paul ties the Scriptures to the Spirit of God, citing that the one who’s belief is in Christ is able to have all this profit and instruction by the very spirit of God which is revealed in wisdom of the scriptures.

God’s Inspired Word

I’d like to preform an exercise on this very concept, and use it along the way as help in seeing the place of the function of Christ in his glory before the world was as well as a fundamental understanding of relationship of the God Head.

This aspect of God’s inspiration other wise known as theo-p’-nu-stos / θεοπνευστοςG2315 in 2 Timothy 3:16 that is literally a compound word theo+pnustos, any one who knows air operated tools will notice the word ‘pneu’, as in pneumatic, meaning ‘air driven’, thus the word ‘pneu’ means ‘air’, and in this way the Scriptures are God’s Air or God breathed, from the mouth or movement of God.

first seen in Gen_1:2, where in the Greek we read of πνευμαG4151 θεουG2316 / Pneuma Theou , the Spirit of God, yet if you compound the word in reverse order you have a derivative word TheoPneu-(stos) God’s Spirit, in direct mention of His Movment made in the air or of his air. Thus signifying the literal Communication of God.

Christ-ology

Logo-logy

In this later portion of this study, we are going to discuss and show, what some call Christ-ology, Yet if I were of any account I would have dubbed it as Logo-logy, or the study of the Logos or Logic of God (Logos is the Greek word used to describe the substance behind a written or spoken word, the Logic as we call it in English): as in fact before the Word was made flesh, His Existence is so Evident throughout the Revelation of Scripture it’s shadow after the cross seems to explode into colorful view.

Consider the the inspiration of the Scripture as we have them in a systematic way and reflect upon the use of the witness of the text to verify our understanding along the way.

The book of Genesis, as we have it in our Greek and English bibles is called by the first few words in the text of 1:1 B’Rosh’th in the Hebrew text, which is called the Masoretic text, which is the oldest Hebrew complete manuscript, this was used to translate the KJV and other Hebrew derived bibles for what is called the ‘old testament’ or the pre-manifestation scriptures, excluding the Deutero-canon, which is not found in Hebrew but only in the Septuagint.

B’Rosh’th, literally means ‘At or In the Head’, only Jeremiah the prophet uses this exact construct of the word ‘Rosh’ as found in Genesis to refer to ‘In the beginning ” of the kings Jehoiakim (Jer_26:1) and Zedekiah’s reign, no place else may we compare this phrase directly, letter for letter in the Hebrew Text. Thus, like the reign of these kings, so is the beginning referenced in Genesis and vise versa, this phrase indicates a definitive point in time.

Thus, as the context of Genesis tells us, that ‘At the Head’ or ‘In the Head’ of Creation we understand God’s Headship by His creative power which the word Genesis is referencing, that is the Generation power which YHWH God has in His function; every time we read in the Greek text, the statement ‘let there be’ and ‘and there was’ we are reading the reason for the Name of the book of Genesis, that is the Greek word Gen-omAi : the functional power of the intent of YHWH God.

Notice in Gen_1:1-3 Creation a 3 fold aspect of the God-Head:

In Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

  • God ‘created’ or ‘made’ by his sole intent

In Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

  • God’s Spirit ‘moved’, in the Hebrew this references the feeling of a fearful or shaken body (Jer_23:9) a thus the breath of the Spirit literally bore upon the water

In Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

  • God spoke and it caused the Genesis of light by HIS WORD

The proof of this being the functionary point of God’s Word (Logos), heard in his words (rehma), by what he said (Eipen) is staggering if you belief the word of faith, that is the trustworthy testimony of the Apostles as witnesses of this glory, in reference and in context, it leads back to this prior inspiration of Scripture.

In Gen_1:1-3 God reveals His His functions to the world, a concept which in and of it self is consistent throughout the Scriptural Testimony, and that of last function of YHWH God contained in His generative ability as revealed to the Apostles but ‘which had been since before the world was’.

The Concept reaches deep into the Nature of ALEhiM as He thet is or in the Hebrew :Y-HWH or in the Greek Hay GenomAi, He That Is.

To this point when we contemplate this revelation of Creation first made known to Adam,

It bears in it’s force the establishment of the intentions brought forth by the spirit in the Word of of God, and in just the first 3 verses of Scripture the plan of God as by his Headship is set forth by the dictates of YHWH God by His WORD.

Consider the definition of Pistis (Belief, Faith or trust)

Heb_11:1 Now Belief is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Heb 11:2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Heb 11:3 Through Belief we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

In this statement of belief’s being we are assured that a good or accurate report was obtained by belief, the understanding of report is the idea of the witness of what was spoken mar-too+reh’-o, thus the sentiment of ‘through belief’ that is of the good witness of the spoken word (rhēma) of God. The record in reference is the Martoo Reo, Reo is the root of Rhema. It is by such understanding that we are not being asked to trust the report of the elders because they are the elders from which we have received the report of the Scriptures, but because the report is believable, it is faithful, it is trustworthy, for by the belief of witnessed words (martoo-reho0) we have not only no other option for the Genesis of the world but to have been made from things which were spoken and not by what we now see.

And as that record which we call the Scripture, which starts with Genesis 1:1 tells us of the Logic of the Genesis of the world, that same record witnesses to the Logic or Logos being made flesh in it’s totality in the man Jesus Christ.

The LIGHT of the World!

1Jn_1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

1Jn 1:2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

1Jn 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

1Jn 1:4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

1Jn 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

1Jn 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1Jn 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

1Jn_1:9 If we confess our sins, he is Believable (faithful, Trustworthy) and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1Jn 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

John in his poetic form shows us Genesis 1:3 in the person of Christ, as the light of the world, He place with the father since the world was, a light which has existed in the witness of the spoken word of YHWH God since the the Head was revealed. As well this Nature of Christ brings forth sin by His light, and by His light when we engage with this believable truth, the light of the world we acknowledge our sin by His Word and dispel the darkness by the light of the word.

Joh_3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

And in:

Joh 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (John_3:19-21)

John tells us that God is light, and Christ assures us that when He as the Son is in the world he shines as the beams of His Father, able and faithful offering us forgiveness from our dark ways of Sin, that is transgression of his law, that is his light, offering us a consistent testimony, a record which speaks to us of the generative nature and corrective nature of God’s Word since before the world began was the intercessor and mediator between God and man.

Showing the weight of this reality, the quotes are too numerous but these 2 picked at random shall suffice.

Pro_6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

Isa_8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Thus as we believe the record of the Scripture we acknowledge it as the way to light our path in this world, and we acknowledge that same function of the word of God as able to correct our sinful way, not only to forgive but to guide us as a lamp after the darkness is dispelled.

Eph_3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ…

Col_1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

Col_1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

As we spoke in the prior message of the sections of Scripture and how we may look to the Hebrew and Greek texts to read the spoken word of God, we must as well enact this word of faith in truth by our confession:

Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Col 1:21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

Col 1:22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

Col 1:23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven…

It is to this reconciled point I will end this message in a reminder of the place of the holistic scripture, the Word of God and it made flesh in the person of Jesus Christ to the glory of the father. It is in the Belief of this holistic word brought by the inspired Canon of Scripture we see the redemptive power of Christ since the world was, calling light forth by the word of God, and proclaiming the word of God as a light to our path.

Thus:

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt Believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man Believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Rom_10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever Believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

If you notice the very revelation of God to us is opposite in order to what was enacted in Gen_1:1-3, we hear the word, our heart is moved and we are made into a new creation.

Pt.1 The Word: Of Faith

In focus is an exposition on Romans 10, with particular emphasis on verse 8.

You’ll notice in this focal verse all of the word for ‘believe’ is changed to ‘faith’, which by the end of this series will terminate in context…

Rom_10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt have faith in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10 For with the heart man has faith unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

In the prior series ‘the Gospel of the Kingdom’ we had finished with victory which comes by True Faith according to the instructions given by the Embassador John. Johns’s emphasis on the element of Faith in the believers life is of such a fundamental importance to over coming the world that By the finalization of this admonition John warns against Idolatry in a contextual opposition to Biblical Faith.

Hebrew Faith

as

show by Abraham

In in any message where Faith is in focus I as a Servant of Gospel can never stop my self from bring those I am serving to mind of the meaning of Faith and t’s synonymous meanings with Trust, and Belief as well as in the Hebrew the very word Faith when we speak of the Faith of Abraham, the great father of Faith:

Gen 15:4 And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.

Gen 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

Gen_15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. In the Hebrew text we are told W Eh AMN- והאמן , the prefix of ‘W Eh’ is understood by those who consider the name of YHWH (Y-Eh-WEh) as He That Is, thus in this action of Belief or Faith Abraham is demonstrated and re called through out the Apostolic Epistles to the Gentiles in confirmation of Abraham’s Faith being Real, it wasn’t pseudo-Spiritual it was Alive Abraham be lived his belief he didn’t just think he had it!

As pointed out the Hebrew word Amen is the word here translated ‘believed’, and else where in the Hebrew Scriptures it is transliterated Amen, it is as well translated Trust, and Faith. Thus when we consider the Words of John or Paul or any Apostle as an Embassador of the Kingdom they are not admonishing us to have fuzzy Faith in our belly, warm glowing belief in our heart, unmovable trust in our mind, they are speaking on behalf of a literal Kingdom of God, present in the physical world, Governed by a Spiritual Law to be enforced upon the Flesh of our mortal bodies, to bring it into subjection to the image of Christ. This is the purpose, this is the end for which Faith is sent into our heart, mind and souls! Faith is the victory but we don’t believe it!

Literal Texts from Original Manuscripts of Hebrew and Greek

I’m going to take some time in describing why I’ve arranged this message as I have, I shall be reading from the KJV, as I generally do, yet before ever getting into the system of study I wish to show concerning the word of Faith, the context of any biblical study is foundational and paramount to any verse needing ot be believed, in other words no definition of language or any other opposing force trumps linear context, that is studying the word and tracing it’s line of thought as far back as the scriptural testimony may permit to understand it’s meaning, but beside that keeping the Scripture from the Law to Revelation as true, no new revelation, definition of a word or composite dogma of multiple verses in isolation can trump very simple and direct commands: a thou shalt or a thou shalt not is more powerful than 100 verses tied together, this is not acknowledging the Word of Faith, when attempts are made to abrogate the Law of God which is the First Revelation of God in Testimony.

The King James Version is the text by which I encourage people to read from as their standard Bible, I do not do this because I feel that it is more Holy or divinely inspired translation due to who translated it or when or where, but because the KJV is a literal translation, this means that the men who translated it tried to match the English to the Hebrew or the Greek, word for word, from which they used as their source text, unlike many other so called bibles, which are infact paraphrases or simplifications of the KJV or another translation; the KJV is literal in it’s intent and as thus it is capable of being referenced back to the Hebrew old testament and the Greek recieved text of the New testament.

However, as I cite often times from the Greek Septuagint, also called the LXX (which are the Roman numerals L -50 and X- 10, X -10 referencing the Levites in Alexandria Egypt who translated it from the Original Hebrew to the Greek), to better understand the scriptures by a double ancient witness, as well as to reference the Apostolic writings also called the New Testament (Mathew-Revalations) which is as well written in Greek, thus allowing us to reference the Bible mostly quoted by the Apostles and Christ himself, we then can do this for context and compare of the Greek usage of understanding from the Law and Prophets which was being taught to an obvious Greek speaking audience.

The

WORD IS NOT WRITTEN IN IT’S ORIGIN

The WORD of YHWH was literally spoken,

it is Inspired, Breathed!

Here is why I am bringing up the line of study which I personally use: Because the Faith with we must first have is in the Word of YHWH God, in Context and by systematic means. Our Faith first starts, not from the written word of God but from the spoken Word of YHWH God, and it is the Spirit which preserved the spoken word in the Testaments of Scripture:

Consider these 2 examples of Christ’s Trust as well as His source

Mat_4:4… It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

As well:

Mat_22:31 have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

Consider the statement, Christ is asking the audience ” have ye not read that which was spoken”

Our Word of Faith is not limited to the Testaments in writing, it is in the very Fact that the Scriptures are God’s literal word, that is inspired, as the literal translation of inspired implies the physical breath used in speaking which constitutes a voice.

The WORD of God is Living,

Thus our Faith must be Living!

It is to this Faith First in the Spoken word, the literal Word of Faith breathed from YHWH God, we except it’s revelation as preserved in the Hebrew and Greek text. Yet to this Faith we study to show our selves approved, not appeal to spiritual inspiration of our own minds fist but to the God inspired Scriptures which we apply a line of Study to test every creed, doctrine, dogma, and spirit which is found or finds us. Again the validity of the Canon is proven in fact in it’s ancient and preserved forms, witnessed to by the holistic nature of the Canon of Hebrew and Greek, it is our Rock to build on in Faith to stand in opposition to the Rain and winds which work to not undermine the word of YHWH God, but against our Faith in the work we build upon it. Thus when I offer a Sabbath Bible Study, at home to my family first, to those I meet on the street, to a gathering abroad or as this message goes out on the world wide internet, I try my very best to offer studied opinions derived from Natural witness which all me use to view the world around them, yet texted to and fortified by the Scriptures.

When I speak of the Scriptures I am both citing the totality of Scripture and The Exclusiveness of Scripture, and in this God ordained order as He Gave it, thus by the Power of it’s claim, and by the directive of it’s Nature, the Scripture is wholly true and infallible, but in order to understand and apply the knowledge and power of it we must accept it in a systematic order upon the Natural witness: The Law (Genesis-Deuteronomy- Pentateuch), Histories (Joshua- Esther), Wisdom (Job-Song of Solomon), the Prophets (Isaiah -Malachi), I would as well include in the Histories the part of the Septuagint called Apocrypha or the Deutero-Canon; upon and After this Testimony or Testament of Almighty God, seats the Coming of Christ which we call: The Gospel (John, Mathew, Mark, Luke), immediately followed by the so called Apostolic period, that of the first eye witnessed to the Life, death and Resurrection of Jesu Christ according to the Word of God, the Acts of the Apostles, and then within this period of Acts and immediately following it’s silence is the Epistles or letters of the Apostles, the correspondence of the Embassadors of the Kingdom to it’s Citizens according to the prior Word of God, of course we end with Revelation of the Apocalypse, which is the recorded testimony of prophecy given to an Embassador of the Kingdom, written in a letter or epistle to the Citizens of times yet to come.

Thus, in this order I preform in depth bible study to prove a matter, particularly from the New Testament, as the apostle’s of the kingdom cite and quote from the Scriptures commonly called old testament (the Law to the Apocrypha), using the comparable Greek manuscripts from the Septuagint, it then I compare that to the Hebrew and perhaps if questions arise I will reference the thoughts of the Vulgate Latin translators and so on, All of this is then dissected by the meanings of words by comparison of regular words and phrases to construct the meaning, NOT solely by an uninspired Concordance, thus a list of the word and root words and compound words are researched throughout the texts of the Hebrew and Greek scriptures before I ever say I believe this! This is done because it truly matters to be that when I speak to whoever is listening it is able to be seen why, how, from where my Faith has come.

Being ready for an Answer for our Hope

That according to:

1Pe_3:15be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear, this In hopes to aswell fulfill :

2Ti 2:25, that: In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

2Ti 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Thus if my hope, which I offer does not come from the Word of God and is provable by the holistic record and witness of the scripture, by a firm foundation which resided in the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit as well as proving that it is such by provable testimony which do not stand alone to show it to be from those Divine witnesses my witness is not true. Thus to offer the hope bound in the foundation of Faith, as a substance of things hoped for, I must for you who hear me provide substance and evidence for things not seen which can only come from the record and witness of the Word of God.

In this explanation of why this study has been constructed in like fashion, I also hope to lay a bases for the trust we are to have in the Word it self.

The Gospel

of the

Kingdom

Part 7

Faith is the Victory

Believe the Gospel!

Isa_52:7 from the Tyndale translation of the Mathew’s bible, compiled by John Rogers in the 1530’s after Tydales martyrdom to open this final message:

Isa 52:7 O how beautiful are the feet of the Embassador, that bringeth the message from the mountain, and proclaimeth peace: That bringeth the good tidings, and preacheth health, and sayeth unto Sion: Thy God is the king.

The message from the mountains and the good tidings are by translation the Gospel, the good news which in every way speaks to Zion, Thy God reigns as king! This is the very message which should be infused in any message called ‘the Gospel’

In the prior message it was finished with, what I hope was a realization of the impact of the New or Renewed Covenant, what is also called in the English bible’ the new testament’ , yet these two terms are identical and of the same meaning in the Greek.

The New or Renewed Covenant as recorded in Jer_31:31-36, is as well spoken of by every major Prophet, as seen in proclamation of it’s fulfillment in the blood of Christ according to Mat_26:28, Heb_8:8-13 in its explanation offers no ulterior interpretations or scope of focus: This New Covenant is a covenant made with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, this fact shows that the Gentiles of focus throughout the Apostolic Scriptures were in fact of these two houses, an unified house of Israel in Christ, called Christians, a Kingdom of priests or the Royal priesthood and Holy Nation as read in the prior message; as well this New Covenant with Israel was to the affect of placing YHWH God’s Torah Law in the Heart and mind of this People, that according to the merits of Exo_19:5-6, this New Covenant would enact the same Law written upon stone now written on the hearts and mind, in order to accomplish this aspect of causing YHWH to be Israel’s God and Israel to be YHWH’s People, a relationship which causes all individual recipients of this covenant to know YHWH for His mercy will forgiveness unrighteousness, sin and iniquity which YHWH Covenants that he will remember no more…if an Israelite is truly party to the contract.

This aspect of the Gospel message takes the stone tablets of God’s law and writers them upon the heart and mind of the Great Nation of Abraham, that we may become lively stones to build up to a Kingdom of God. The point which was being made in the prior part was that YHWH never intended Israel to follow the Law written on stone, rather He always desired them to desire Him.

In our primary text of The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Mar_1:15

We shall conclude on this final statement

Believe the Gospel!

In the second message of this series it was spoken of How the word Gospel was a Saxon word, similar to German and in the Greek it literally meant “the good message” (eu-anggelion), this as well was preached by John the baptist as the good-placement, in reference to a road way system, that is a leveling and straightening of the base to prepare or make ready the Way…The Way was shown from Exo_23:20-23, to be the obedience indeed to the Word of God, a personality of Perfection seen in the life of the man Jesu the Christ, the Word made flesh, the king to whom every knee shall bow and every tough shall confess is Lord to the Glory of the Father…Amen

It is by the new Covenant this kingdom of Christ grows within us, the manifestation of the merits of the New Covenant is Christ the King’s life in us, we call this Sanctification or ‘the holy life’ I life set to mimic the Perfection of the Life of Christ by Obedience indeed to the Father’s Word as seen in the written testament of God’s Law which we call ‘the Law’, the personification of the Father’s cognition, we are to transform ourselves to to resemble the perfect Christ and thus be a kingdom of priests and a holy or Sanctified Nation.

1Jn 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

1Jn 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

1Jn 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

The Faith which we exibit in the Word made flesh, is seen in our flesh, that is our life by the measure of purification according to the written Word we are willing to purify our hear and mind with.

As mentioned prior: In the Greek scriptures the English words Belief, Faith and Trust are all translated from a single Greek root ‘Pist’ or ‘Peith’ (pistis/ peithous), they are relative words seen in the Hebrew Scriptures as a word we easily will recognize ‘Amen’, So be it, or literally ‘Truth’, the word simply means ‘Truth’. The definition we are biblically give for Faith is:

Heb 11:1 Now faith or belief (πιστιςG4102) is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Thus, in our primary text, we are told: the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe (pisteu-ete / πιστευ-ετεG4100) the gospel.

Pisteu indicates the having of Faith, while Pistis indicate the element of having Faith it self (Belief vrs. Believe); And it is by Repentance this Truth or Faith is shown towards the Gospel. In other words, we do not say Amen with out mouth, we live Amen by our actions, we repent which is ‘the substance’, the kingdom is thing hoped for and ‘the Gospel’ is the evidence of what is not seen.

If we belief or have faith or trust that the Kingdom is at hand we will repent and truly believe the Gospel. Repentance= a heart and mind changed towards the Law of God as seen in the New Covenant.

The Gospel

The New Covenant or God’s Personality in our Heart and Mind has been the Gospel of the Kingdom, essentially since Eden, easily seen in Exodus 19, yet proclaimed plainly by David and the writer of Hebrews.

In the Greek scriptures of the LXX, although it has always been a kingdom message as may be seen in 1Sa_31:9; 2Sa_1:20; 2Sa_4:10; 2Sa_18:19,2Sa_20,26,31; 1Ki_1:42; 1Ch_10:9; 1Ch_16:23 …Every verse here shows a Kingdom message being conveyed.

Brenton LXX:

1Sa 31:8 And it came to pass on the morrow that the Philistines come to strip the dead, and they find Saul and his three sons fallen on the mountains of Gilboa.

1Sa 31:9 And they turned him, and stripped off his armour, and sent it into the land of the Philistines, sending round glad tidings ( eu-anggelizo / ευαγγελιζομενοιG2097 ) to their idols and to the people.

If it is that the word Gospel still carries a preconceived meaning, that is that all good tidings or good news is YHWH God’s News, this and the prior verses prove to the contrary.

Rather, Just as in this very first mention of the word Eu-anggel here in 1Sa_31:9, the good news was of King Saul the anointed king of Israel’s death, that is the defeat of Israel was to the philistines the Gospel of their kingdom of Idolatry and people. This is the very the same word translated Gospel in our New Testament Scriptures when we preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of Christ; every Greek reader of the Septuagint Hebrew scriptures would have recognized this word as Kingdom message, in the case of YHWH as Covenant God, the promissory God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Gospel of His Kingdom is the victory of He and His people over the world, the world as a gigantic a terrible Image, and Idol which rules the world of (remember Daniel ch.2) The Idol was terrible! so massive it’s visage frightened the very king of the earth. Yet this stone, this simple piece of a mountain rock hewed by only the desires of YHWH God set his Stone as a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offense to the might and majesty of the world of Men! And were is this victory found in the Stone to be a mountain? A Mountain to be a Kingdom?

John’s Recorded of God’s Witness

1Jn_5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

1Jn 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1Jn 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

1Jn 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

1Jn 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

1Jn 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

1Jn 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

1Jn 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

1Jn 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

1Jn 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

1Jn 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

1Jn 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

1Jn 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

1Jn 5:15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

1Jn 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

1Jn 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

1Jn 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

1Jn 5:19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

1Jn 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1Jn 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Bringing us yet again back to the inerrantcy of the Word of God, the whole record or testimony of the Father YHWH God, Communicated by the Holy Spirit of Truth to His prophets and Apostles, revealed in the perfection of The Son, the Word made flesh…It is faith in our Heart of this Witness which will OVERCOME THE idols of this WORLD, and it’s people with them!

All of this found in the promises found in the New Covenant made with the Gentiles of the house of Israel and Judah, a people of the Nations of Abraham who Desire to be His People, by excepting The Word into there Heart by Faith! To set our feet on a sure foundation a Rock destine to Grow by Grace.

In our opening verse of Isa_52:7 preaching of Righteousness and Justification by forgiveness of Sin through the blood of Christ and the placing of YHWH’s Law upon the heart of Christ’s followers stood upon the mountains perceivable as they watched the Idol begin to crack! when the the stone cut with out hands started it’s grind.

Faith in the New Covenant as Gospel?

David saw this in his Day the writer of Hebrews published it’s Gospel proclamation…

Consider:

Psa_40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

Psa 40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. Exo_33:22

Psa_40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

Psa 40:4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Psa 40:5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

Psa_40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

Psa_40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

Psa 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God:

Now turn in your bible to Heb_10:9, at this very point you will see a fact of extraordinary significance, right after this quote from David says…

He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.

Heb 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Heb 10:11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

Heb 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

Heb 10:13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

Heb 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

Heb 10:15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

Heb 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

Both David an Hebrew’s author are preaching the same Gospel, the Gospel of the NEW COVENANT, the law written within our heart.

Notice what David preaches next:

Psa_40:9 I have preached (announced Eu-aggelize) righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

Psa 40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

God’s Law written upon the heart and preformed in the life of a true believe is the Gospel in action, it is proof to the fact that you are made party to YHWH God’s New Covenant. That is that the heart of Stone, that adamant Stone has not only received the Word of God in the belief that Jesus Christ came in the flesh, but that this message has sanctified your life by the washing of the water by the Word…you now believe that Pro_30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Our Christ quoted from the Law in Deu_8:3 found in Mat_4:4 when the tempter came to him, and said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. Christ answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. This is the hunger and thirst for righteousness, found in the New Covenant, a food which feeds our souls, that is of combined heart and mind!

New Covenant Faith in the ‘Old Testament’ Law?

Deu_11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.

(LXX-Deu 11:18 And ye shall store these words in your heart and in your soul, and ye shall affix them as a sign on your hand, and it shall be fixed (or unshaken) before your eyes. )

Deu 11:19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Deu 11:20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:

Deu 11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

Deu 11:22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

Deu 11:23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

Deu 11:24 Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.

Deu 11:25 There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.

Deu_11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

Deu_11:22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

Deu 11:23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

Days of Heaven upon Earth,

Days of the Kingdom upon Earth!

Mat_6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Mat 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Mat 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.

Mat 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Mat 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.

Amen.

This is the Message of the Gospel, it’s a simple one if we as His people Just have Faith that every Word of YHWH is True, Yet if that Belief, Trust and Faith id not had it will be our stone of stumbling our rock of offense.

The Gospel of the Kingdom

Part 6

From a Mountain and to a Mountain

(Fulfilled x Kingdom = at hand * Repent x Faith = Gospel )

The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand:

Repent ye, and Believe the Gospel.

Mar_1:15

A focus on a Kingdom acting more like the KING

As the focus of the prior compilations have been on the Stone of Daniel’s interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar dream, this Stone which we have thoroughly identified as being the Kingdom of God as well as the kingdom of Heaven as spoken of by John the Baptist, Jesu the Christ as well as Christ’s disciples literally referring to those who speak according to the testimonies and the Law of YHWH God as revealed in His Son, these original 12 were called apostles, a word which directly refers to ambassadors of this very Kingdom, a kingdom which to be preached according to Mat_10:6…to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Thus a large portion of this study has focused upon the Kingdom Israel as a Nation or Ethnic people who are infact the Many Nations or Ethneh, the ethnic people of Abraham’s promise destine to contain the kingdom of Priests and the Holy Nation called out of Gentile darkness according to sin’s Committed against the Law of YHWH in the services they preformed unto other God’s and in vain or empty worships, services that were used to worship YHWH contrary to the Way he prescribed by his Eternal law committed to the hand of Moses, which we call the Law of Moses.

It is to the next portion of understanding the holistic Mount from which the stone kingdom has come from, as well as what it is destine to be and now is. While the inevitable message of the Chosen Generation of Ethnic Israel is primary in the understanding of the Gospel of the Kingdom, and as that which is part of the Dream seen by Daniel in Dan_2:44 as this stone to crush the Kingdom’s of this world.

THE ROCK(S)

The other aspect which we have dealt with is the references in Scripture which call YHWH the Rock of Israel, which we may briefly yet concisely see in:

Deu_32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Secondarily the Rock is a reference to Abraham, the patriarch called according to the foreknowledge of God and given the Grace of YHWH’s choosing as Grace which is irrevocable, a gift which is without repentance gifted to Abraham and his Children who had literally according to the word of YHWH came from Abraham’s loins in his nearly dead old age; to this point we focused in our past messages particularly, to show YHWH’s re-redemptive work with the people of Israel according to the song of Moses.

Isa_51:1 Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the LORD: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.

Isa 51:2 Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

Yet do not miss that it s the followers of righteousness which shall look unto the Rocks from which they have come, not one of these rocks stand independent of each other. YHWH is the mountain from which Abraham had come and had been called with out YHWH’s calling Abraham is nothing. Likewise to the next level of this Stone kingdom come from the Rock or Mountain, it is the Law which proceeds from YHWH given to the people of Abraham.

It was in the first part of this series where we had seen in Heb_1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom.

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Where it is not only proclaimed that Christ due to his heirship by descent from YHWH himself as His father, or by his being the one seed of Abraham’s son’s through his virgin mother Merry which gave him right to David’s thrown by descent as well, but it was upon the Rock of YHWH’s Righteous law which gave him right as Christ, the king, the Anointed of YHWH and Ruler of His kingdom.

Thus we have this Righteousness as yet another aspect of this coronation which establishes Jesu the Word made flesh as the King of YHWH’s kingdom, as well this same righteousness establishes the righteousness the citizens of the chosen generation must attain to be a kingdom priests/a royal priest hood and a Holy Nation. a scepter to be in the hand of every true son of Abraham… lively stones.

A little Hebrew lesson: Mountains, Rocks and Stones

In Daniel the word mountain (H2906 טוּר/ TUR, this is Chaldean, while the Hebrew equivalent is H6697 צר / TsUR) This word is often translated ‘Rock’. It is to be understood that a Rock /TsUR is that which makes up a הר / EhuR (H2022), that is a specific mount or hill, upward projection of TsUR (s) or Rocks. From these rocks comes stones or a stone (H68 אבן/ ABeN) these may break or chip or be hewn from the prior.

For a Biblical application of this knowledge, in:

Exo_3:1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain (EhuR) of God, even to Horeb. S it is seen that Horeb is a mountain.

As well in Exo_17:6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock (TsUR) in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock (TsUR), and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink.

Here in Horeb, where the burning bush was shown, is the place where YHWH gives drink from the same mount is as well the Rock of Horeb the TsUR, just as in Daniel only in the Hebrew dialect.

It is further into this mount: Deu_5:2 The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.

As well this references:

Exo_19:3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

Exo 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.

Exo 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Hereafter, Moses was delivered the 10 commandments, The Law of the Kingdom of Heaven and of God is confirmed.:

Exo_20:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

.

Exo_24:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

Exo_31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

This is where the first set tablet was written with out hands, written by the finger of YHWH God entirely.

Consider:

YHWH God took a Mountain, he selected a Rock, he brought the people to that specific place and from thence YHWH, with out hands took a Stone (ABeN) and upon that portion of the mountain HE placed his law, the spoken word YHWH himself wrote.

Unfortunately, after this point, Israel broke their covenant by worshiping the Golden calf they call YHWH, Moses is told and he breaks the stone tablets written by YHWH God and rebukes the people. After this of course,

Exo_33:19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

Exo 33:20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

Exo 33:21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

Exo 33:22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

Exo 33:23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

AND then…

Exo_34:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.

Exo 34:2 And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount…

Exo_34:4 And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.

Exo 34:5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.

Exo 34:6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

Exo 34:7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

Exo 34:27 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.

Exo 34:28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

Exo 34:29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.

Now it is obvious that Israel would have trouble with following God’s law no matter it it were written by the God upon the stone or if Moses wrote it by his hand upon the stone. No matter what force employed the stone as the tablet to contain the Law, it was the people who had the problem not the stone or the word or the God which wrote spoke the Words of the Law of God.

To this point I wish to make a summary point in thought as we had prior read and seen in John 1 “The Word was made flesh..the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesu the Christ…no ma has seen God at any time, but the only begot has declared him!”

This is the perfection of Christ in the comparison with the testimony we just read.

Heb_8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

Heb 8:9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

Let us continue in Isaiah 51:

Isa_51:4 Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

Isa 51:5 My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.

Isa 51:6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Isa 51:7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.

Isa 51:8 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

My God I am ready for the old things to vanish away, the elements of this world which surround us to wax old, and for those of us who are looking up to the king of heaven to know YHWH, to have his righteousness in our mind and his law upon our heart.

This message we just read is in perfect continuation from Isa_40:1-8, which John the Baptist proclaimed to be voice of one crying in the wilderness to prepare the Way of YHWH, as found in the coming of Jesus Christ (the way the truth and the life), Yet before the manifestation of the word made flesh, Moses to Isaiah to John the Baptist, to Peter saw the Word of YHWH as well as YHWH himself, as well as Abraham our father, as well as the word made flesh in Jesus Christ

To such Peter equated the Word and Law of God to another aspect of this agraget anology:

1Pe_2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

1Pe 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

It was as Exodus 19 told us when YHWH God spoke from off the Mount: “If you Obey My voice indeed, then you shall be a kingdom of priests and a holy nation…”

The Genetic or Ethnic make up causes one to be a chip of the rock, a stone from off the mountain, but it does not cause you to be a lively stone capable of building the kingdom, nor will it cause you to be founded on the cornerstone, rather will be come a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense if Obedience to the Voice and Word of YHWH is not done Indeed, by Faith, that is truely.

Consider the words of John to the Pharisees:

Luk_3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Now the simplicity of this verse tells us that God can take stones from off the ground as make them sons of Abraham, but this would not be so, a stone, even if creation was repeated would not be a literal son of Abraham unless that created being was made from the loins of Abraham according to the promises, the testimonies we trust in as a light to light the ways of YHWH God.

Rather the preaching of John is in references to the same verses on baptismal cleansing to repentance:

Eze_36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

Eze 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

Eze_36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

John was not referencing stones on the literal earth, he was referencing lively stones which live by Faith, John was speaking of what Ezekiel was speaking of not of a make believe doctrine of spiritual son’s of Abraham or of Israel that is contrary to the testimonies and Promises of God contained in the Word of God. All we have to do is read the context of the teaching of John hear and it would be evident that John’s rebuke is to the sons of Abraham who think their lineage will save them with out a renewed heart, by the new covenant.

YHWH GOD is able to take our stony heart and make it alive! As Abraham, was as good as dead by reason of his age, so are we even in our youth we are as good as dead with out Faith! The Grace of God is irrevocable, yet this Grace is through Faith, just as our Father Abraham had received, which was imputed to him as Righteousness, that is Abraham was Justified by His Faith not by his calling, and by his sanctification, that is his obedience:

Gen_26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. and for this reason Isaac Abraham’s literal son continued to receive the Promises, the oath which YHWH swore unto Abraham and he believed.

Thus this next course of understanding of this kingdom of stones, and the kingdom of the stone is the final symbolism how this Stone grows to be a kingdom, namely, that the Stone and the Rock from the mount are also a combined aspect of the Law of YHWH God, all of which is the totality of the Son of God the ma Jesus Christ the word made flesh, YHWH’s Genetics, Abraham’s Genetics, the Word of made flesh, who lived the perfect life, the king of the stone kingdom. Lively stones, stone tablets come to life in the flesh of our lives, growing to a mighty kingdom, with the holy temple to be seated upon it’s foundation…

Heb_8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.

Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

Here is the calling of the kingdom made known, the Gospel of the Kingdom preached by Peter in 1Peter 2, the Stone kingdom is a Kingdom of Law, founded upon the foundation of the Word of God which has no plausible reason to be in objection or rival against Jesus Christ and his redemption work found in the New Covenant made in his blood, By hailing the perfection of God’s Law proclaimed by the glory and Word of God it crowns Christ as Lord of All, it is to this point that we may understand the coronation of the captain of our Salvation in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Php_2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Php 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Php 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Notice, Paul excludes the obedience which comes by social peer pressure, but he calls beyond the stone tablet to the breath of the Word of God which causes men to fear and tremble at the presence of Almighty God!

Obedience indeed, not in pseudo-spiritual heart felt kinda way, where our sins according to the flesh never brought into subjection, but rather it is an obedience indeed which drops us to our literal knees, the ones we walk with (not the spiritual knees of the heart alone, as some have said) but that we are willing and loyal subjects to the Name of Jesus Christ! For as Isaiah said when he first penned these word in :

Isa_45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

Isa_45:24 Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

Isa 45:25 In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

The Word in Righteousness causing us to bow to the perfect Word and swear “In YHWH Have I righteousness and strength!” To this pledge of allegiance do we establish the Kingdom, to this pledge the incensed against him are confused, that is that the literal seed of Israel shall be justified, made righteous and glory…by the righteous word of YHWH God!

Here is the Delivery of the New Covenant, a heart and Mind bowed to the Name of Christ as the Word made flesh, the Name of a King which carries in it the blinding perfection of the Glory of God revealing unto us from heaven the faulted flesh in need of being obedient indeed.

Heb_8:13 In that he saith, A new, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Are we as a people ready for the old man to vanish away? are we ready for the inward man to fight for his king and kingdom, starting with self government in our heart and mind in our inward parts? Are we ready to walk in His ways as He desires? Contrary to the non-biblical doctrine which even nomian and Torah observant believers hold, that this is in reference to the vanishing away of portions of God’s Law ordained for His kingdom, NO, Not one jot or tittle will pass from this Law!

Rather this verse as all others which speaks to the completed work of Christ is in reference to Sin! Our faulted flesh!

1Jn 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

The Altar of unhewn stone found in the dream of Daniel, which came from the mount crushed the principalities and powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world, the Idol’s and self governments of our own fleshly dictates in our non-renewed heart and mind, that is the force which drives the kingdom’s of men and maintains it’s power. The Stone first turns to flesh in our heart, makes us livley stones to grow unto a holy temple:

Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Eph 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

The Gospel of the Kingdom

Part 5

Another People

(Recap and Identification)

(See introduction messages to the Message

‘A Common Law for a Common-Wealth the Common-Law of God:

Israel a foolish nation being ground to powder)

In the past messages we had established some basic principles in this message it is the goal to enact a review upon the mind as to the basis laid from the scripture of the nature of this Gospel of the kingdom according to our guiding text of

Mar_1:15

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

In the end of part 1 of this message as well as in the beginning of part 2 this verse was mentioned:

Mat 10:5 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:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

It is to this scope the last message has built up to in conjunction with the regular and yet extraordinary call to repentance required to establish the Kingdom of GOD and of Heaven.

Hereafter is a lengthy recap to help recapture the emphasizes prior discussed:

  • Primarily that the inerrantcy of Scripture: the Law the histories the wisdom and the prophets, called the Word of God, the Word of YHWH is the foundation of the Kingdom. it is by the Word of God that we know, the apostles knew, the believers believed, the prophets spoke, kings are judged, wisdom is proclaimed and the Law of God is seated established by the spoken Word of God, the Law in this primary station established the Eternal rule for ADaM in judgment of Good or Evil.

The understanding which is echoed throughout this testimony to the word of God which was transmitted plainly to be understood by John the Ambassador was that :

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh_1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Joh 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

Joh 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

Joh 1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

Joh 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

Joh 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

Joh 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Joh 1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

Joh 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

Joh 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Joh 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

  • Thus the Word of YHWH God made flesh in the person of Jesu Christ is the Law united with a king fit to rule a kingdom like no son of Adam has ever or will ever have power to due.

About this kingdom of God and of heaven:

  • John the Baptist was the messenger or angel sent to prepare for the coming Way

  • The way was identified as the good or well placed way or path according to Mal_3:1, Isa_40:4

  • That the way was prepared by straightening or leveling a metaphor used for repentance or the change of mind

  • John the Angel was recorded as preaching according to Mal_3:1 which Malachi preached from Exo_23:20 which Identified the Way as leading to the kingdom of God and given from heaven, that is a Nation and country seated upon God’s promises and God’s Law

  • The Way of Exo_23:20-24 was a way of 2 primary points

  1. Obedience to the way as deliver on the mount, that is the revealed Word of God found in his law, which shows the expressed person of YHWH God Almighty, God’s Law is his personality, and thus his person is known by it alone.

  2. and the way of Conquest, that is the substance of those whose iniquity is fulfilled according to Gen_15:14-16 as to establish the Kingdom on earth as it was given from Heaven

  • This Way spoken of by Malachi (Mal_3:1-5) was as well a Way by obedience through purification and repentance to the establishment of the Kingdom of Exo_23:20

  • As fulfilled in the Way, the truth and the life which was, is and shall be is Christ who taught his disciples repentance by faith towards YHWH God the Father in all of the a fore mentioned ways

1. the way and the truth are both Identified by Scripture as God’s Word, Law, Commandments and Righteousness

2. The Life is the Perfect life of Christ, sent to redeem and regather the children of the Covenant and promise that is the children of the kingdom to their King and God by showing the Word made flesh

3. Christ Jesus: the way truth and life is synonymous with the way which YHWH desired Israel to walk in in establishment of His Kingdom

  • Christ, the WORD made flesh is the only way to the Father, who is the Law Giver of the Kingdom Law

  • This Good Message or Evangel is referencing real life repentance according to the Law of God, through the life and blood of Christ, enacted by Baptism unto repentance followed with a life baptized or immersed in the ways of YHWH God likened unto His son.

  • It is this Good message which in English we call the Gospel of the Kingdom of God or of Heaven, thus the Good-tidings or good message, the Gospel is in fact the message of the straight way by repentance through faith and establishment of the Kingdom by God’s Law and the enthronement of the Word made flesh in the sinless life of Christ the anointed King of Israel

  • When speaking of the kingdom of God it is a direct reference to the Kings and Nations which was to be sprung from the genetic stock of Abraham the father of fruitfulness in fulfillment of the Dominion mandate of Gen_1:26-28

  • Of this promise to Abraham which was given by linage descent and not by a fictitious spiritual adoption, the promise was was given to Isaac and Jacob whom God named Israel and of whom YHWH gave 12 sons who be came 12 tribes, who became a great multitude of Nations of whom YHWH would call his Kingly or Royal priest hood and Holy Nation or separated ethnicity

  • It was at the mountain of God where YHWH gave his 10 commandments and Law that Israel was enacted into this Covenant of obedience in order to be YHWH’s Royal priest hood and Holy Nation, a segregation of a chosen race or generation which was seated upon YHWH’s supreme sovereignty of the whole earth.

  • The Kingdom in focus in the time of Christ, by the Judean people of the day who when they heard the proclamation of the time being fulfilled, the kingdom of God being at hand and the reason for repentance and faith in the Good-message would have acknowledged of what the Prophets spoke of as the time of Israel’s regathering to the throne of David Isa_9:6-7 and as well as the regathering for told to this servant King in Isa_49:6-8, who was the covenant of the people of Israel as found in the New Covenant or renewed Covenant spoken of By Jeremiah 31 and Christ was acknowledged as such by Hebrews 8.

  • It was this Kingdom come as a stone cut from a mountain with out hands which that Daniel saw which would shatter the unbonded Kingdom’s of the Earth and grow it self into a mighty mountain to consume the earth.

1. The unhewn stone was Identified by the law as an altar, a place of sacrifice and offerings

2. Thus it was this kingdom of God that was indeed priestly and a Holy Nation, a lively stone to grow, in it’s redemptive work found in the New covenant.

  • In Luk_17:20-21 the primary placement of the Kingdom was Identified as being within ones self before all other placements, and that there is no hidden or secret to the return of the son of man (son of Adam).

  • It is by the whole of this explanation given by Christ himself that the kingdom is of genetic make up, a ethic people or nation, of one common law, answering to one common king; a kingdom which is grown in the next generation to be received or taken care.

It was according to these points that were covered in the last 4 messages that the Scriptures may have revealed a different light on what it is that we in our modern day are awaiting to Observe.

A point which seems to be evident from our guiding text as well as those which have been focused upon to bring this stone into view is to this truth: As far back as Adam’s dominion mandate,to Noah and through our Father of fruitfulness, Abraham, to whom the pro-Evangelisto, the fore-Gospel, the before stated good message as spoken of in Gal_3:8 speaks to the wise of justifying the Nations, that is the Ethnic people of the linage of Abraham through Faith or belief, yet the scope has never changed sin Genesis 1 to Gen 12 to Revelation 21, the redemption of the Nations of Abraham’s fruitfulness reconciled in the 12 tribes under the appointing of one Shepard, Jesu the Christ.

BELIEVE THE GOSPEL?

Thus the Faith or belief of the Gospel stated in mar_1:15 and throughout the scriptures is the same faith, belief or trust found in Gal_3:8 as extracted from Gen_12:2-3 and last called the Ev-anggel in Revelation 10:7 and 14:6, which we shall eventually speak of.

This is how the kingdom is able to be within you according to Luk_17:20, this is how it may be said of Children for of such is the kingdom of God (Luk_18:16), this is how it may be said that Whosoever shall not take care of the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein Luk_18:17, and it is as well we may clearly understand:

 And from the days of John the Baptist until now

the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence,

and

the violent take it by force.

Mat_11:12

The Identity of the Kingdom of the Stone

It is because this violence enacted by the violent hate the Gospel proclaimed since the Genesis thereof, they hate the king, his kingdom, his kingdom of priests and holy nation, his chosen generation, and by striking the next generation, that is the children the stone which became a mountain according to Daniels dream is thought to be broken by hands, the mountains growth is suppressed.

As now cited several times the prophecy of Daniel was the stone cut with out hands which came from a mountain, fell to the earth, crushed the feet of image, and after the subduance of the image the stone grew to a mountain and filled the whole earth. Let us go back ad understand the nature of this representative stone and the emphasis only Scripture places upon in to understand the identity of this Kingdom of the stone, which as well shall consume all the prior kingdom’s before it according to:

Dan_2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

The Stone which has been called a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation Isa_28:16, the ‘stone which the builders rejected’ Psa_118:22-23; is as well called a ‘rock of offense’ Isa_8:14, in 1Pe_2:6-8 the summary by the ambassador Peter as being Christ as well as the word of God, yet Peter as well pluralizes the stone he just quoted from the prophets and applies it to the elect according to the foreknowledge of God and calls them lively stones or living stones. According to Daniel’s interpretation in Dan_2:35-44 this stone which shall become a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed it will as well not be left to other people, to this answers the voice of 1pt_2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people which of course is an echo of Exo_19:5-6.

We need to notice and understand that this kingdom is working it’s consummation as we speak, it is grinding to powder the feet of the image to this day including the foolish nation of Israel which has been scattered according to Deu_30:1-3 as well as the song of Moses in Deu_32:21 through out all nations and kingdoms, particularly in this instance the nations and kings dominion who are of the linage of Abraham, they are Abraham’s fruitfulness according to the flesh, even unto this day and no different was it in the time of our Christ when he spoke and said:

Mat_21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Mat 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

Mat_21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

So that the point is not utterly missed, consider the LXX translation from the Brenton of :

Dan_2:44 And in the days of those kings the God of heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed: and his kingdom shall not be left to another people, but it shall beat to pieces and grind to powder all other kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Dan 2:45 Whereas thou sawest that a stone was cut out of a mountain without hands, and it beat to pieces the earthenware, the iron, the brass, the silver, the gold…

Christ is ‘calling the people of his day out’, as being part of this inferior image, particularly they are part of the feet which He in his coming has smitten, and now he begins his consuming, his grinding to powder, his breaking to pieces, and in conglomeration of the words of Daniel and of our Christ as well in the interpretation of Peter and Exodus, the kingdom will be taken from the Judeans under the occupation of Rome, taken away and given to a Nation bringing forth the fruit of the kingdom, yet not another people as that is clearly told by Daniel, but another Nation, that is the Holy Nation, the Royal Priest hood.

And how is it that this Stone will not break us?

How is it that we shall not be ground to powder by this stone to be a mountain?

To this same point wrote Moses in his inspired song, ‘The Song of Moses’ in a reprimand of Israel’s vain worship and it’s consequences he says:

Deu_32:18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. (Isa_51:1-13)

Deu 32:19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.

Deu 32:20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.

Deu_32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

It has been cited in the past messages, particularly, that this very phrase used for Israel in rebellion, that those who are ‘not a people’ are the same as those who were ‘not a people’ in 1pe_2:10 the same as in Rom_9:25-26, Hos_1:9-10;they are those who have obtained mercy in: Hos_2:23; (Those redeemed of the nations, the Gentiles or Ethneh of Abraham are the The Lo-Am of Hosea and the Song of Moses.) and to this mercy given to Israel by Grace Paul the ambassador states:

Rom_11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Rom 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

Rom 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

Rom 11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.

Rom 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

(alt. Rom 11:29 For irrevocable is the grace and the calling of God.)

Rom 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

Rom 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Rom 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

Rom 11:35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

Rom 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

This kingdom will not be given to another people, Rather the People who were not a people of Hosea are clearly the People of Israel of whom YHWH’s mercy had been taken away for a time, yet it is those same Gentiles and or Nations, the Ethnic people of Abraham of the tribes of Jacob whom YHWH God has chosen to call out of darkness and into his marvelous light, the transfer, spoken of by Christ is in conjunction from his very quote from Daniel which tells us…this kingdom shall not be given to another people, it shall rule over the House of Jacob forever, Christ has inherited the thrown of David His father.

Yet in all this, there is an element of this coronation which crowned the King of Kings which Anointed this son of a Virgin, the son of God with the oil of Kingship the oil of gladness which has raised him above his fellows, it is the same Anointing we who are of the Redeemed of the Gentiles, the Ethnic people of Abraham, the lost sheep of the house of Israel of whom according to the flesh Christ came are called to, and anointed by.

Regardless of our Genetic heritage or should I say Ethnic inheritance a the tribes of Jacob, with out our Rock we are nothing, with out looking back at the stone we have in times past tripped upon, we are bound trip and become blind yet again, and the Stone will continue to grind us to powder according to Christ and Daniel. From Generation to Generation this foolishness will be handed down, and those whose own hard hearts hate this mountain to come will be violent against it, and will aid in it’s suppression.

It is never to be forgotten the reason why Israel was Gentilized, that is scattered throughout the earth by captivity and wandering, it was for …Because we have forsaken the covenant of YHWH God of our fathers, which he made with us For we went and served other gods, and worshiped them, gods whom we knew not, and whom he had not given unto us:

Deu 29:27 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:

Deu 29:28 And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.

Deu 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

It is by the Stone and the Rock Israel will be a Kingdom of Priest’s and a Holy Nation, and it is by Stumbling over it they will fall, be blinded and broken. No matter the generation, no matter the time the Gospel is going out the lost sheep of the house of Israel calling them to repentance and become the Chosen Generation, to be part of a growing and mighty mountain. It is only by obedience to the Law of God written on Stone, yet placed with out hands in the heart of this people that this mountain will consume, as well it is by disobedience to this same Law written on Tables of Hewn Stone that this Ethnic people will be consumed with the kingdom’s of the Earth.

First it is important to understand the connection to two Hebrew words most fte in the KJV as mountain (H2906 טוּר/ ThUR, this is Chaldean, while the Hebrew equivalant is H6697 צר / TsUR) This word is often translated ‘Rock’. It is to be understood that a Rock /TsUR is that which makes up a הר / HuR (H2022), that is a specific mount or hill, upward projection of TsUR (s) or Rocks. From these rocks comes stones or a stone (H68 אבן/ ABeN) these may break or chip or be hune from the prior.

Deu_4:9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;

Deu 4:10 Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

Deu_4:11 And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.

Deu 4:12 And the LORD spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.

Deu 4:13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

Deu 4:14 And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

The Time is Fulfilled

and

The Kingdom of God is at hand

Fulfilled Part 4

…Repent ye, and Believe the Gospel.

Mar_1:15

It is to this first statement our last message and this message shall be devoted, as well as that which shall encompass the rest of this series, that is ” The time is fulfilled”, in part 3 the focus was upon the fulfillment, as will the beginning of this message be as it is tied in to the aspect of the time being fulfilled.

The Question which was stressed in the last part was that of ” What was a Biblically minded person living in the land of Judah, hearing the message of the Gospel as expounded by John the Baptist or of Christ, what was it that they, by reading the Law and the Prophets had anticipated when Christ spoke this our opening statement?”

What was the Good-Message? It was the good- placment, the straightening or leveling in preparation of the roadway, which was found in the Coming Christ Who proclaimed him self to be in Joh_14:6 the way, the truth, and the life and who as well boldly stated in the context of the Chapter no man can come to the Father but by him, the road way to God. This was according to the prophecy given by Malachi 3, Isaiah 40 directly seated upon the same context of the way found in Exo_23:20-33: this Way easily seen as the Law and Word of YHWH as mentioned time again as such through out the Torah of YHWH. It was this Way which was codified at the hand of Moses yet was in every jot and stroke the written cognition of Judgment found in the person of God. As well both aspects of Kingdom establishment found in this portion of Exodus takes precedents as the base of understanding the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom, that is a literal national homeland or country and 2 one which is Governed by God’s Law given from Heaven to establish a literal Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

This Way which the Host of Israel shall march upon will lead to conflict, it will lead to spiritual warfare, the foundations of this Kingdom will dispossess the inhabitants of the Land whose iniquity will be fulfilled in due time according to the Gospel delivered to Abraham and to his seed, his nations and his kings, chosen as a holy race according to 1pe_2:9, the redeemed of the son’s of Adam through the Ethneh of Abraham, reconciled in the regathering of the tribes of Israel under and unto one Shepard according to the words of the prophets and of the Law, and to those who are called according to this purpose and Salvation even unto eternal life in His Son (Rom_8:28; 2Ti_1:9; 2Pe_1:3)

I hope that while this prelude to the message in forecast with the knowledge of Christ, whose glory is indeed once it is known, is hard to conceal, I pray it was to this hope it was understood by the last message, that to those men who heard the Gospel’s proclamation in the days of Christ and John this was an anticipation relayed by the scriptures.

We now move on to this son of David and foreseen King of the Kingdom, the very heir of Abraham’s pro-Evangelion, the fore-Gospel, the basis which the Gospel came upon according to Gal_3:8.

In the prior message and comipation of Scriptures a Septuagint /LXX traslation of Isa 9:6-7 was Considered:

For a child was born to us; a son was given to us, of whom the sovereignty became upon his shoulder; and his name is called, Messenger of great counsel, wonderful, counselor, God’s mightyG2478 potentate, ruler of peace, father of the coming age.

For I will bring peace upon the rulers, and his health.

And great is his sovereignty, and of his peace there is no end upon the throne of David, and his kingdomG932 to set it up and to take hold in judgment; even with righteousness from the present and into the ages. The zeal of the lord of Hosts shall do these things.

(It was pointed out that isxoros / ισχυροςG2478 is the Greek word for strength or power in Gen_32:28 when Jacob’s name was changed to Israel when he prevailed against the angel)

 

The anticipation of this Kingdom proclaimed by the Gospel was a re institution of Exodus 19, as the disciples of Christ knew was the end result of of the Coming King of Israel as recorded and proclaimed by the Ambassador Luke was a kingdom rule:

Luk_1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

and after all the preaching and the resurrection Luke tells us the disciple yet anticipated this literal fulfillment :

Act_1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

Act 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he,ye have heard of me.

Act 1:5For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Act 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

Act 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

This anticipation was no doubt caused by the former sited scriptures and more, as well as by Christ’s own testimony Luke as records:

Luk_22:29-30And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

The Disciples did not interpret the Scriptures in a overly fleshly way as some may ignorantly or prejudicly suppose, rather they, as we, should take our Christ and His Word at face value, literally. It does not take a bible scholar to see the King, and Kingdom having it’s very existence in the thrown of David a kingdom of Israel’s united 12 tribes…literally.

Is it not in Isa_49:3-8 which promised that in Israel, I will be glorified… and that Christ, Messiah the Servant was formed from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of YHWH, and my God shall be my strength?

Of whom YHWH proclaimed: It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

Isa 49:7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.

Isa 49:8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages

We had read in the past compilations some of the prophecies which indicates the time of this fulfillment, it is obvious from both John and Christ’s proclamation that

this time had come, and that indeed the Kingdom was at hand.

It was as well to all the promises which was found in the Gospel of the Kingdom, which the Prophet Daniel spoke and sat his prophecies upon as well, Daniel was a prophet who was a captive in the land of Chaldea of the son’s of Judah, when the King Nebuchadnezzar king of what was one of the most vast and powerful kingdoms on earth YHWH sent a dream: And to Daniel the prophet and servant of YHWH was the interpretation given, it was and is a prophecy of much controversy, and while many will not except this explanation of this interpretation, and this I know already, it is I believe the irrefutable foundation of the time of fulfillment Christ in Mark 1:15 Exclaimed:

Dan_2:31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.

Dan 2:32 This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

Dan 2:33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

Dan 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

Dan 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them:

and the stone that smote the image

became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Dan 2:36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

Dan 2:37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

Dan_2:38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.

Dan 2:39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

Dan 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

Dan 2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

Dan_2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Dan_2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

 

Many interpretations of the meaning of this stone cut with out hands is proposed, yet the Law of YHWH tells us about the nature of this kingdom Daniel saw which was cut or broke from a mountain, yet it self after crushing the feet of the last kingdom grows it self in to a mountain it self!

 

Exo_20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

Deu_27:5 And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up any iron tool upon them.

 

This kingdom is representative of the same Exo_19:5-6 Kingdom of Priests and Holy Nation.

The Ambassador of this very kingdom of God and Heaven, Peter, told the strangers and pilgrims scattered through out the kingdom’s of the earth, yet elect and foreknown of God the Father called, to be thus:

1Pe_2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

1Pe 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

1Pe 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

1Pe 2:9 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 hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1Pe_2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. (This of course as a direct quote of Hos_1:9-10, Hos_2:23 ; Rom_9:25-26, Rom_11:30)

This very Nation, that is the Holy Ethnicity, whom God had foreknown and promised to our Father Abraham in the pro-evangel, that is by the singular seed of Christ (Gal_3:16) born of the seed of a woman (Gen_3:15), the WORD made flesh, the Nations and Kings to proceed from Abraham’s literal loins would be blessed and as a result would as well be a blessing to all families and peoples upon the earth just as promised in :

Deu_4:5-8

Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments… Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

Deu 4:7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

Deu 4:8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

The Answer to this question asked in Deuteronomy 4:7-8, seen in 1 Peter, the answer is none other than Israel when sanctified through of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. It was unto this glorious hope the kingdom became at hand through the Coming of the Way, the Truth and the Life the one foretold to have the power to raise up not only his own slain body, but to be the example of the tabernacle of David which had fallen, raised to unite the Kingdom once again to a lively hope of a kingdom of God, a Common-Wealth of Israel, A Citizenship which surpasses borders and life, beyond death a citizenship acknowledged in the thrown room of the Father YHWH God forevermore.

It was to this point the pharisees like the churches of our modern day choose to ignore, the lesson all Christians and members of the church in particular and collective should acknowledge before they ever attempt to understand any prophetic utterance or insight on eschatology or end time is Luk_17:20, this lesson is a rebuke to the future minded bible readers who even attempt to know an inkling about end times prophecy before they understand the first place of the kingdom prior described in Exo_19:6, as found in the kingdom of priest’s and holy nation, principles which are so natural, logical and realistic pervade the subject beyond the proposed spiritualism found in most understandings of God’s Kingdom:

Luk_17:20 And when he (Christ) was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

Luk_17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for,

behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

Luk 17:22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

Luk 17:23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

Luk 17:24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other partunder heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

Is that not clear enough so satiate our minds Christians! The Son of God, the Father of the ages to come has clearly told us to get up off of our hands, waiting in anticipation for a sign of His Coming, following the wind of every doctrine and spirit of the end times and acknowledge simplicity of the fact that Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. Luk_18:17

Here is a very interesting point on this subject: The Greek word dexhe-tai / δεξηται translated here receive only occurs in 6 verses of the whole bible including this one: Mat_10:14; Mat_18:5; Mar_9:37; Mar_10:15; Luk_9:48.

In every instance the context of the word translated receive, is in reference to ‘taking care of’, NOT to receive LIKE one, as in ‘to be like a child, infant or baby’ but rather to receive as you would take up a child in your arms or care! That is the idea of taking up the kingdom into your care, as you would receive a child so must you receive or take care of the Kingdom of God. A revolutionary light on the Idea of why such children as Christ received into His arms were likened unto the kingdom… THEY ARE THE KINGDOM, the children of the Covenant, the hope of a future Generation.

This stone has every potential to become a mountain in Christ.

Is it then any wonder that from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force? Mat_11:12

If you have not understood how this verse had a possibility in the world now perhaps it’s understanding is opened

?

Just a few verses down Christ asks this question alike:

Mat_11:16But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows (friends),

Mat 11:17And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.

The context is followed in Mat_11:20 :

Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done,

because they repented not.

 

No matter how the message was given, in happiness or in sadness, it would not be received, they will not be happy with the message of Repentance, to understand the Kingdom primary place, they instead look here and there, but never believe it is repentance which comes from within.

What Generation are we likened unto?

The Time is Fulfilled

and

The Kingdom of God is at hand

Anticipation Part 3

…Repent ye, and Believe the Gospel.

Mar_1:15

The message or evangelism of the kingdom by repentance was discussed in the last study, showing that which was spoke by the Law and prophets as the message which was proclaimed by John the Messenger or Angel according to Mal_3:1 and Exo_23:20, He was the voice of one crying in the wilderness preparing the straight way of the Lord, yet John was not that Way he was rather the leveler, the straightener of the landscape making way for the straight path of Christ, who directly proclaimed himself as the Way the Truth and the Life and that NO one comes to the Father but by Him.

It hopefully was conveyed and understood that John’s message of repentance and of baptism came from the scriptures prior to John, from the Law and prophets before him, that was his validation for truth, in this way John spoke with certainty that what he spoke was accurate, and we as well only when we speak in accordance with that which is validated before hand know that we speak according to the Truth of the Gospel, the Good or straight message. Even in the coming of Christ this was a crucial point, and in the coming of the Kingdom, the want to acknowledge if one truly was beholden to the Gospel was to try it by the scriptures, to this point spoke the LORD YHWH from the time he reveled himself to the sons of Adam, from the time the subtle Serpent in Gen 3:1 spoke according to the command of God yet contrary to YHWH’s directives in what God required for obedience.

To the same point Moses spoke concerning those who claim to be prophets or dreamers of dreams, those who give signs and wonders that actually happen, yet they proclaim a message that is contrary to the Way and ways of YHWH:

Deu_13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Deu_13:1-5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee. (Exo_23:20-26)

As well Isaiah summarizes the same sentiment in:

Isa_8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

Isa_8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

It is imperative that repentance according to the word of God, the Law of God, and the testimonies of God are ascertained in a concept of mind, that is a mind change, a repentance according to the scriptures. If we think that in any way the Life and Truth of Christ, that which we may call the Gospel is contrary to the least of scriptures…It is another Gospel and another Jesus, another Christ and another Kingdom we are looking for.

If the validation of the scriptures supports John son of Zechariah the Baptist as the messenger of the Way of Christ, and that messenger is represented in the words of the supporting prophets and the Law, then the Way truth and life of Christ is the same way which brought Israel out of Egypt, a way of faith and trust in YHWH to lead them to a kingdom they would subdue according to the promise given to Abraham as well as according to the iniquity of the inhabitants of the land of Canaan Gen_15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. which was according to the curse of Canaan Gen_9:25 . Yet in conjunction with this way which lead to the promised land, this kingdom of God, was the Way which lead to the governance of this Kingdom and promised land, a Way steeped in repentance according to the Law of God Codified by Moses for a National Law to rule the Nation of Israel, this was YHWH’s very own cognition of judgment written into a code of legislation, a Law to rule a Kingdom, a government of His people, by His People and for His people, which keeps HIM as the focus of the Kingdom, thus A kingdom of God, ruled by the dictates of Heaven, from whence God Spoke to, and in

Deu_4:35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire. And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt.

And in

Exo_20:22 And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven.

Thus this Kingdom of Israel, to be ruled by YHWH’s Law was a kingdom of Heaven upon Earth,

Deu_11:21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.

 

Or as our Lord Christ teaches his disciple, that is those who bind up YHWH’s Laws and testimonies as there Light, we pray Mat_6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. and this we pray before we even ask for our daily bread…

Deu_11:22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

Deu 11:23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

The way of the Gospel of Christ is the same way as Exodus 23:20, it is a way to a Kingdom, it is the way, the truth and the Life set by example of the King, the very Law made flesh, the Word made flesh, the truth of God’s commandments, words, and Law made flesh which is the road, the way, the straight path messaged by John, proclaimed as the Gospel.

Thus it is both aspects that are in need of focus, that of the Kingdom as a National home land or country, and that of a Kingdom made up of those who are subject to the king and marching upon the Way which leads to the Father and the King of all!

So when Christ proclaimed that the time was fulfilled and the Kingdom was at hand what fulfillment was he referring to that the people who believer the Scriptures would acknowledge?

We may safely conclude with the prophetic psalms of David or of the prophets to show the place of the anticipations of a person awaiting the kingdom come in the days of Christ, the biblical impact is important.

THE DOMINION MANDATE

IS

THE BASIS OF THE KINGDOM

…Be fruitful and multiply…

As said plenty of time before, the Dominion Mandate is the foundation of Adam’s son’s place in the world, it shows us primarily that dominion of governance is a blessed state and it is always accompanied by fruitfulness and multiplicity:

So God created ADaM in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion… Gen_1:26-28

To this dominion was the same made to Noah and his heirs in Gen_9:1 ;

In continuation the first time this Dominion is associated with the word King is in:

Gen_17:6..thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

So here is where the roots of Dominion are by Faith an anticipation of a Kingdom on account of nations and kings coming from Abram now called Abraham. It should also be noticed for future compilations that Abraham is promised to be increased into nations and kings:

LXX 17:6 And I will increaseG837 you exceedingly exceedingly. And I will establish you for nations;G1484 and kingsG935 from you will come forth.

There is no place in this statement for Spiritual sons of Abraham, rather in both the Hebrew and the great a very simple Reality of agriculture is promised, with out need of a spiritual interpretation, that is from this Father of Fruitfulness, Abraham, will come literal seed, and literal children, which will become an Ethneh or a Ethnically related people by a common father “Abraham”, a race of common origin which will have Kings (MaLeKIM in the Hebrew or Basileis in the Greek-plurals).

THE PRO-GOSPEL of ABRAHAM

This is important because this portion of Scripture to Abraham is by extension, what Paul identifies as part of what is called the Gospel in Gal_3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations through faith, preached before the gospelG4283 (literally: pro-evanggelisato / προ-ευηγγελισατο )unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. accourding to Gen_12:2-3, which inturn transfers by the same message to the following promises Gen_13:16, Gen_15:5, before Abraham’s circumcision and after in Gen_17:5-7, (Gen_17:16, Gen_18:18, Gen_22:17, Gen_28:3-4, Gen_28:14, Gen_32:12, Gen_46:3; Gen_48:4; Exo_1:7; Num_1:1-65 and beyond.) It is well to note that the English phrase ‘preached before the gospel’ is only derived by 1 triple compound word with the suffix which gives the gospel a present tense position, prefixed by the word ‘pro’, thus telling us that the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the nations through faith pro-evagelized at that very time to Abraham… This is the ground word of the Gospel of the kingdom!

Exo_19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

forwarded to the Gentiles or nations sprung from the loins and seed of Abraham by Peter the ambassador in:

1pe_2:5-9 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 hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

These are the Nation of Abraham, Abraham’s fruitfulness, being seen in the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, in Exodus at the very chapters where we are told that YHWH spoke from Heaven…a kingdom of Heaven.

By this promise of Kingship to proceed from Abraham carried into the time of Moses, whose giving of the Law made direction for the King: And to Moses YHWH again reveled His Law of His King, and thus of God’s Kingdom:

Deu_17:14 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;

Deu 17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

Deu 17:16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.

Deu 17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.

Deu 17:18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:

Deu 17:19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

Deu 17:20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

After this came Saul who failed, then David who was given the eternal kingship ad of whom all the King’s of Israel have sprung to this day. Yet David or any of His sons did not attain to the measure of this Law, no matter how righteous the records and chronicles relay their actions. Until the beginning of the Gospel of Jesu Christ.

Yet this was by this scriptural descent the King was to come, and the king’s sons.

The people of Judah, hearing the preaching of John the messenger and Christ Jesus the Message of the Word of this very Law made flesh according to Joh_1:1-14, this Kingdom Law summarizes the person of the Anointed King of Israel our Israelite ancestors longed to see fulfill all the proclamations of the Gospel by the Law and Prophets, to set the people’s feet aright on the path which led to righteousness, justice and mercy; the stern Word of God which breaths upon flesh and it withers as grass, yet it’s Spirit and testimony stands forever, it is alive, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb_4:12

It was to this Kingdom anticipated but not prepared for our Christ came, and his Angel came before him, the people seemingly to not understand the measure of repentance required to have such a kingdom…Do WE! DO WE UNDERSTAND WHAT KING WE ARE SUBJECT TO?

Consider a Reading from a Septuagint /LXX translation of Isa_9:6-7

For a child was born to us; a son was given to us, of whom the sovereignty became upon his shoulder; and his name is called, Messenger of great counsel, wonderful, counselor, God’s mightyG2478 potentate, ruler of peace, father of the coming age.

For I will bring peace upon the rulers, and his health.

And great is his sovereignty, and of his peace there is no end upon the throne of David, and his kingdomG932 to set it up and to take hold in judgment; even with righteousness from the present and into the ages. The zeal of the lord of Hosts shall do these things.

(Interest mention: ισχυροςG2478 is the Greek word for prevail when Jacob’s name was changed to Israel.)

The Gospel of the Kingdom

Pt. 2

John The Angel

The Messenger of the Covenant

 

Notice the way in which the Gospel of the kingdom evangelized:

Mar_1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

This statement has within it’s construct some crucial evidence in finding the meaning of the statement it self.

  • The time is fulfilled

  • The kingdom of God is at hand

  • Repent and Believe (Faith or Trust) in the Gospel

    (Due to the nature of the points Repentance shall lead, followed by The Kingdom which is at hand.)

This is the scope of our Study in this series: to understand as best we can these 3 aspects of Christ’s ministry which we know as well from the biblical testimony that John was preaching this same Kingdom and Gospel message of Repentance:

Mat_3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judah,

Mat 3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and Matthew’s record as well tells us that Christ used the same language as John:

Mat_4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

This message of the Kingdom come was directed in ministry towards the same people the entirety of Scripture is written to:

Mat_10:5 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:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

The constructed order of Mar_1:15 sets the fulfillment of this Kingdom of God accompanied by repentance and the Gospel: briefly, it is of necessity to allow for the Greek words which are translated ‘Repent’ and ‘Gospel’ as to assure the collective evidence needed for establishing a definition. As the LXX is as well written in Greek it is a great translation of the Hebrew Scriptures to ascertain this evidence. As well there are some simple definitions as told by James Strong (one of the most used Lexicographers to date on Biblical Greek and Hebrew, and his works are greatly apprised by the Bible reading community as, it is upon much of his efforts to give the common English speaker a way to see beyond the English version, it is upon his efforts that a foundation was laid for many other tools we now have nearly 200 years later! And frankly it bothers me to hear many lesser men of biblical language to belittle Strong’s efforts as to elevate there own inferior work, when honestly one compares. I and others may disagree with a point of language derivation as sited by Strong, or as I often do go beyond the definition of the root word Strong’s gives on to the words composition, yet one should honestly acknowledge such a man’s efforts.)

When we consider the great number of references and direct sightings of this announcement of the Kingdom by John the baptist, Christ, and the apostles, we see foremost a call to repentance.

The Announcement of the Kingdom’s coming was a call to repentance.

Repent… or μετανοειτε / Meta-noeite

G3340

μετανοέω

metanoeō

met-an-o-eh’-o

From G3326 (meta) and G3539 (nooce)

Strong’s puts it: to think differently or afterwards, that is, reconsider (morally to feel compunction): – repent.

Some translations have this compound word translated ‘changing mind’, which conveys the same point as repentance in the liter English construction, yet it is the accompaniment of the mind changer that the statement gains it’s direction. In Mark it was ‘Repent and Believe the Gospel ‘, in Matthew it was ‘repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand’, the direction in which this sets the tone of repentance is based upon the affect this faith in the Gospel of the Kingdom has on ones mind, how it changes it. In other words, what ever was expected or known from the Scriptures, which was convayed by the Holy Spirit through the Law and Prophets in the written word of God, prior to the coming of John and Christ, is what was being preached in the statement ‘the kingdom of God (or Heaven) is at hand’, the beliefe, faith or trust which Christ and John were calling the people to was a fore spoken of and this message was now being preached that it was at hand or within reach, or able to be handled due to it’s nearness, the statement ‘at hand’ references the nearness of the kingdom, as to be close enough to handle it, know it or feel it . The call was to have an impact upon the mind of the people to know they had the kingdom near to them at this good-announcement known to us by the Saxon phrase Gospel.

Most Bible readers know that the Gospel is ‘the good news’ or ‘good tidings’, as a literal understanding of it’s meaning, yet it is of importance before moving on to consider some logic and language on this word ‘Gospel’ and it’s Greek original eu-anggelion.

Some logic:

Every Gospel is in need of a good- spealer or in Greek, every eu-anggelion is in need of a good angel, in moder English we now pronounce this word: evangel, yet it is Identical in meaning as the word Gospel. The later portion of the word is none other than angel which literally means in Greek ‘a messenger’, which may be a human messenger sent from YHWH or perhaps one from heaven.

The English Germanic word Gospel, derives it’s origin from the original Saxon form “Go(o)d-Spell” which is a literal translation of the Greek and or Hebrew compound word, consider one of the most early “English” translations of the story of Christ, the translation of the

“West Saxon Gospels” of 1175:

Mar_1:1 Her ys godspelles angin hælendes cristes godes sune.

Literaly. Here is the Good-spell again (archaic. beginning, from the top) of the Healer Christ god’s son.

(“Jesu” literally means Savior or Healer)

This is how the majority of the world has started to use the archaic Saxon word for “Eu-aggel”, we now pronounce ‘Evangel’ as the word is easily seen by the mindful English speller: Go-Spel which is a compound word for God – Spel or Good- Spell: as the meaning of the Greek “Eu” is “Good” turned to the shortened form of “God”, and then contracted to “go”. As for the Archaic “spel” which is modernly “spell”, yet it’s more rooted definition is defined by

Noah Webster in 1828 is

Spell

SPELL, n. [The verb primarily signifies to throw or drive, and is probably formed on the root of L. pello. In some of the application of spell, we observe the sense of turn. We observe the same in throw, warp, cant, &c.]

1. A story; a tale.

So the “Go-spel” is simply the archaic Saxon words “Go(o)d-spell”

The Beginning of the Gospel

So in the Scriptures of Israel written in Greek we are looking for the time being fulfilled that will indicate the above aspects of this kingdom by repentance, faith and Good-message.

As sited above and in context with both messages of John and Christ, this Good-Message was accompanied by repentance or a mind change. As well prior in Mark as sited above to show the archaic use of the word Gospel we have Mark’s announcement

Tyndale 1526:

Mar_1:1 The beginning of the Gospell of Jesu Christ the son of God,

Mar_1:2 as it is written in the prophets, behold I send my messenger (angel) before thy face which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Mar_1:3 The voice of one that crieth in the wilderness: prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight (Eu-theias: lit. good-placment).

Mar_1:4 John did baptise in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance, for the remission of sins. (Trans. Tyndale 1526)

Notice how that the messenger or angel, John the Baptist, is the one crying in the wilderness and calling for the paths to be made ‘straight’ or Eu-theias, it is within this Greek word that we find the first portion of the Eu-angel, that is Eu or good, the good or well placed path or straight path, thus when we consider this from the Greek perspective, the Gospel or Evangelion is the message of the straight path, this was John’s contribution to the Gospel.

Since in this very place we are told this is the beginning of Christ’s Gospel and it is ad-fixed with Mark’s own understanding of this message he pulls from the prophets to validate his claim: Seemingly by compare the Prophet quoted is

Mal_3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me (Heb. and Gk: literally says ‘before my face’ L-PaN-Y / לפני) : and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

Mal 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

Mal 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Mal 3:4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.

Mal 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger , and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.

Mal_3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

This ending sounds strikingly familiar in sentiment to Heb_13:8

The LAW

and

The Messenger,

and

The WAY

Before moving to the next prophet it is advantagous to also consider the siting from the Law and it’s context which Malachi is quoting:

Exo_23:20 Behold, I send an Angel (Messenger, in the Hebrew the word is MLAK) before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

Exo 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

Exo 23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

Exo 23:23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

Exo 23:24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

Exo 23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

Exo 23:26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

Exo 23:27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.

This particular aspect of this siting in reference is to John, he was the messenger, the angel, the MLAK, whom the people were to fear and obey. It is easy to find ones self applying the statement to Christ, yet it is very directly referencing John. As Christ is the way.

Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

 

MLAK references a kingdom role, in the Hebrew, the exact same Hebrew word is used regularly to describe a king, it is not insignificant that this Gospel we are are focusing on is the Good-Message of the Kingdom, and the Hebrew word used here for messenger is as well the word for king.

 

 

The Vulgate’s Latin text of the prior , which is a translation of earlier manuscripts in 405ad by Jerome forwards truly the quote of the Prophet Isaiah as well as in both mark and Matthew’s reference to the Preaching of John’s Gospel.

Joh_1:23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

Isa 40:1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

Isa 40:2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins.

Notice just before getting to the quote John uses, the context is of Jerusalem’s return from warfare, her iniquity is pardoned, her punishment time is accomplished, this is called to attention on account of the situation of

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand…Mar_1:15

Isa_40:3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Isa 40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

Isa 40:5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Isa 40:6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:

Isa 40:7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.

Isa 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

So we see the mountains being brought low, the valleys being raised, thus a leveling is having by the evangelism of John, repetance shown and confessed in Baptism is enacted in preparation for the coming Kingdom which is at hand, the reminder of the meaning of the message is the illustration given by Isaiah of grass which flourishes and fades and dies away, yet the eternal aspect of this Gospel, this good message, these good tidings cried upon the mountains is: ‘All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:..The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. ‘

Echoed in the preaching of John to the same function of the Holy Spirit:

Mat_3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and fire:

Mat 3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Then we hear:

Isa_40:9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings (Ev-angelizing: Gospel), get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings (Gospel), lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah,

Notice to Zion, notice the evangelism going forward, the Gospel, the good-message:

Behold your God! Isa_40:10 Behold, the Lord YHWH will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

Isa 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

That is the faith of the’Good-Message’ it is the ‘straight path’, He is the ‘Way the Truth and the Life ‘ found in the coming Shepard and King of Zion who rules by YHWH’s arm!

So here is my question in ending this 2nd part of this Message,

  • Is this the Gospel you understand in the preaching of John and of Christ?
  • Is it a call to repentance by the word of our God that stands for ever?

that is a mind change or a repentance on account of the Kingdom which is at hand?

  • Is it a Gospel, a good message that the wicked will wither away by the Spirit of God?
  • That those who walk by faith in these GOOD tidings, Evangelion of the Way the Truth and the Life of Christ which we come to the Father?

This is a call to repentance, to walk in the way of God’s WORD, to walk in the Truth, of God’s WORD and to walk in the Life of God’s word in order to get to the promised land which Christ leads us to. Repentance leads us to John’s Baptism, John has lead us to Christ, Christ’s Way leads us to the Father…and there is no other way to achieve the Kingdom, to enter into it but by Him.

Please do not misunderstand, this is not speaking of Faith with out works, I am speaking of obedience to the voice of the Word of God Breather by his Spirit for us to walk in to show our sanctification by the message we have received:

Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

And to the point first point of Mar_1:15 the time of fulfillment, we shall explore in the next message, as well as how the wicked seek to take the kingdom by force…

The Gospel of the Kingdom

Part 1

Christ the King and Head

Christ the Word and Foundation

There are 2 major points which should be made in both the understanding from which this message and all others offered come forth, that is that first and foremost to quash the insolent supposition put forward by those who have, as well as those who may misidentify the importance of the focus upon the Word of God, the Law of YHWH and the Testimonies of Scripture. As there are those who suppose that upholding the perfection of Scripture beyond doubt of it’s abrogation in any way or by any force, is not ‘christian’, insomuch as this faith in the validity and immovable foundation of the WORD of GOD particularly as it pertains to the Law of God is even to the unknowing mind, in opposition to Jesus Christ; that is there are those who are offended at the Gospel of the Scriptural record and Testimony as contained in the faith of those such as my self who try and practice the Law of YHWH God to the best of their ability while living in the flesh, just as well even by those thing which we can not practice, therefore we do not practice them, by our belief that those things contained in the Law of God are nonetheless Perfect, such as the tabernacle and or temple order, or the operation of the priesthood, as well as ever offering and or sacrifice ever spoken of by the Word of God, all of it is perfect, every WORD of God is true, pure faithful.

It is to this point the following shall go forward, upon this premise

Heb_13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Heb 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God:

whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

The APB Trans says: whom contemplating the result of the behavior, you imitate the belief!”

Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Heb 13:9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines.

It is by this Christ who is the Same yesterday today and forever that we place our faith and trust in, to direct our behavior or conversation.

Thus all messages which I offer come from the simplicity of Faith in the inerrant WORD of YHWH God, that is a Biblically Realistic understanding which seeks to show that the Bible as the WORD of God: Perfect, inerrant, and divinely inspired in it’s origin, all of my Faith from which we get our Hope is through this book and the belief that it has been preserved through the Grace and Providence of He That Is God, the Scriptures of course bear this out continually, but for one who doubts the relevance, and Salvation contained in the Scriptures as Holy there is no Chapter and verse which will ever be enough to convince (as the KJV calls) the gainsayers (in the Greek the word gainsayers is translated from Anti-logo literally those who are against the word).

Yet for those who have tasted and seen that YHWH is Good and that God is true but every man a liar, we know this:

Rom 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

As well we may have our hope in 2Ti_3:15-17 which tells us that it is the knowing of the holy scriptures…are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. and that : 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, throughly furnished unto all good works.

This is the lesson for the Church, the Ecclasia of Christ. The Prophet and King David tells us Concerning the Law that that it is Perfect in Psa_19:7,

Psa_12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

Pro_30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

Pro 30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

No matter what your eschatological persuasion is or what your denominational endoctrination is, the Fact is that the if we believe by faith that we have gained Salvation by that which is taught in the Bible then we consent that the Word of God is true, and if we consent that it is true then according to Psa_119:160 God’s… word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

Thus I offer in every message we shall cover and have covered that every Word of God is true, it is Truth, it is applicable in some way to our life as followers of Christ as Christians, no matter what part of the bible: old testament or new testament, Law, prophets, histories or wisdom, All which are written in the scriptures are founded upon the Law of God as their foundation, every Word of God rests on that primary foundation founded in God’s Law, as our ability to see the faculties of Judgment used by God Almighty. From Genesis to Deuteronomy every word which is written in the Pentateuch is perfect and true it is as Hebrews 13: the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

The rule which keeps us back from Being carried about with divers and strange doctrines, it is the foundation of the Church, the LawfulCommandments, statutes, precepts and Judgments of YHWH,.

One might object at this point as many have done to be in times past after making this statment, and site

Eph_2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

Eph 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Which brings me to the second major point of understanding.

That these two statements are one and the same, that is Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2Ti_2:19

Iniquity is translated from the word a-dikias, the letter A being the prefixed negative particle to the word for righteousness, thus, literally means to be ‘void of righteousness’. This Iniquity which stands as a determination of the seal of God upon a proper foundation is then the naming of the name of Christ in conjunction with the departure of unrighteousness. Thus the foundation taught by the Apostles and prophet having Jesu Christ as the head corner stone of the foundation, creates a building fitly framed together to habit the Spirit of God, this is describing nothingness than the foundation we are called to in the principles of the doctrines of Christ a foundation founded in repentance from this unrighteousness, that is that Jesus Christ is the WORD made flesh according to John 1:1-14 for the very reason David tells us that the word of YHWH is true from the beginning and shall endure forever, that is that the Word of God, as found in His law which divides and separates good from evil, and teaches ADaM Man Judgment by YHWH’s directives is personified in the Man Jesus Christ, thus offering us a holistic foundation to be built upon:

Consider:

Heb_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.

Heb 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

Heb 5:14 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.

Heb 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,

Heb 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

Heb 6:3 And this will we do, if God permit.

Our calling is to move beyond the milk, which is found in the Law of God and repentace from the sin which has held us in bondage, disallowing us as

Eph_2:12 reads: That at that time we 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:

Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus we who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Eph 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.

It is here that we may now build and move beyond the Idea that the Law of God is to arduous or strenuous to allow us to use it as our measure of righteousness, for Christ has given us the ability as both head of the Church and Foundation, it is exactly by His blood we water and hydrate the mortar of this holy temple, this house hold of God, this citizenship of the Common wealth of Israel; it is by the blood of His covenant we are empowered to believe in the whole word of God, and having no fear of the enmity as long as we are sealed with the proof of our calling by our departure from iniquity/ unrighteousness as we discover it’s hiding place in our life.

Hebrews goes on to say in Chapter 6

Heb_6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

Heb 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

Heb 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

Thus on these two point it is concluded that the two are in Biblical reality one and the same, that is that in every word ever spoken by YHWH God Almighty is the person of Jesus Christ, thus I can never nor can any one ever quote any portion of the Holy writ of God’s Word and not speak of the perfect life of Jesus Christ the Son of God, who is the Word made flesh. Our perfect example.

AMEN

In the last message A Common Law for a Common-Wealth,

The Common Law of God, the entirety of the focus was concerning the Government which the Christian church should have, as it pertains to: Self Government, Family

Government, National Government and Land Government; when the word Government is used attention should not only be called to the Ideas of what we call principalities or municipalities, that is the rule of civil conduct prescribed by the supreme or principal power in a state, rather our mind should be drawn to the Idea of Control or restraint in what so ever governmental position YHWH God has placed any particular member of the Church of Jesu Christ in.

It is here we exchange with our prior subject matter, as we are told very plainly that:

1Co_11:3 …the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

As well

Eph_5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

 

Col_1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Thus, The Church as spoken of according to the Scriptures is as well a functionary part of this Government process as it is explained above and seen in conjunction with the Laws of God explained in the Common law of God particularly in all of the family organized and regulated order of the Congregation, which is a synonym for the Church, as when we read such words in the LXX we often time find the very same word as translated from the Greek Ecclesia, which is the Church in Brithonic English, thus when we read this family constructed Church or Ecclesia, congregation of the LORD we understand why such laws contained in Deu_23:1-6 are mentioned.

It was this fruitful multiplicity mandated to ADaM for the purpose of Dominion according to Gen 1:26-28, a Governance and Godly Government is that which starts within the individual Covenant recipient joined in marriage by a Godly union which is fruitful and terminates with National Government. This is the Origin of the Church, and it is for this Cause Christ is recognized as the head or husband of the Congregation of Israel otherwise known as the Church or Ecclesial, which is the body of Christ.

The fruit of this union continues the Seed of the Word in the hearts of the Covenant children, as Christ taught plainly concerning the Gospel of the Kingdom of God in Luk_8:11The seed is the word of God.

It is this seed in the fertile hearts of the children of the Kingdom, the church which will as well Bless the world and all the families of the earth accordingly to the dominion mandate which the descendants of ADaM had received as an inheritance, that which was passed on to Abraham Isaac and Jacob Israel Gen_12:3; Gen_18:18; Gen_22:18; Gen_26:4; Gen_28:14, a Covenant inheritance which then had come full circle in the one specific seed which came in the ma Jesu the Christ. Thus, is this holistic Government, as pronounced by God the Father through His WORD which He had caused to be made flesh according to Joh_1:1-14 which stands in this age as our savior, our Lord, our prince, our King, it is Christ the Head of the Church which serves as our example.

The book of Hebrews starts in saying

Heb_1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

Heb 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Heb 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Heb 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

Heb 1:6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

Heb 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

It is unto this Government we as the Church are called by one calling, unto the biblical and Lawful New Covenant made in the blood of Christ, according to commandments, statutes and judgments of Almighty God we are Governed, that is by His Law, the Same Law which defines sin and calls the Sons of God into perfection by the love of God:

The ambassador of the Gospel of Christ, John tells us this:

1Jn_3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

1Jn_3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

1Jn 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

our Christ and brother is said to have in him is no sin.

So it is that even in the affairs of this life amid a crooked and perverse generation we are told it was to this calling like Christ hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

1Pe_2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

1Pe 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

1Pe 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

1Pe 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

This is full Government is entirely bound up in the man Jesu the Christ, and in His conduct, He as the Word made flesh had all things in His Body and life under subjection to the the Word which was spoken before His flesh had ever been made, the essence of His perfection being found in the same Holy Spirit which reveled the Gospel through out the Scriptural testament, it is to this Faith and life we as Christians are called to walk if indeed we are members in particular of the Body of Christ and Children of the Kingdom.

If it would ever be asked, where in this common law is Christ? or Where in this Common-Wealth of Israel we described is Christ? Our emphatic answer should be as Head! and as Head as King, and as King it is Christ who is Head of state, the Head of the Kingdom of God and of Heaven, and of the Common-Wealth the body politic of the Church.

It is to this Kingdom of God which our focus must be now be called after establishing by the Scriptures the Headship of the Son of YHWH over the tribes of Jacob as His righteous servant according to Isa_49:3-9, as well it is to self Government we are called to press by love closer into image of Christ.

This introduction to this new focus is aimed at entrance into the kingdom, into the Church and into the Body of Christ. Notice the way in which the Gospel of the kingdom evangelized:

Mat_3:1-2 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,  And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and

Mat_4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

and

Mat_10:5 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:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

It is to this point the next part of this message shall focus upon.
