THE LORD’S SUPPER

Christian Pascha

Sacrament of the Faith of Jesus Christ

One of the most central Sacraments of the Christian Faith is what is commonly referred to as the LORD’s Supper, the communion, and in the more Catholic tone ‘the Eucharist’ (which is in the Greek literally- ‘good-grace’). When we speak of a sacrament, as well, our Catholic alarm is raised (if you aren’t catholic that is), yet in reality we are speaking of that which is meant to be sacred and the Lord’s Supper is indeed a Sacred thing to be celebrated only by those who have taken upon themselves the Sacred oath of Christ in Baptism, the washing away of their sin and a life in Christ, taking up the Cross of the Messiah daily and following him. Rom_6:1-23)

In the way heretofore described not much seems to be different in the view of most who call them selves Christians, either: Catholic, Protestant, Reformed, Evangelical, Spirit filled, Jehovaah’s Witness and Mormon; all of those mentioned seem to hold, in some fashion this description of who should take ‘the Lord’s Supper’. It will come as a shock if I were in this message able to communicate the Truth as given by the Holy Spirit which comes not from the compiler of this message, but from the Inspired Scriptures which tells those who are Faithful to the New Covenant in the most literal sense, that is the New Covenant made on the very day the Pascha meal was to be eaten when our Lord Jesu the Christ declared the Bread eaten as His broken body, and the Wine drank at that last supper with his disciples as a reminder of His Blood shed as the very blood of the New Covenant.

For this is my blood of the New Covenant,

which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Matew 26:28

If I were in this message able to communicate the Truth of this Sacrament as communicated by the Scripture with no traditional influence, the Lord’s Supper, the Communion, the Eucharist would be a seamless part of the Pascha or Passover Festival.

And in the next few messages it is my goal to convey the truth of the Scriptures, to dispel some of the errors which are held in the mind by Traditional Christianisms, as well it is my goal to show a harmonious Testament which is only seen as contradictory in the mind and emotions of those who hold a split understanding of the Eternal God and a division of His Godhead. I wish with all my heart to lead the Israel of God back to the ancient paths (Jer_18:15),upon the Way so few dare to trod with Moses through a wilderness to a promised land flowing with milk and honey. One may presumptuously assume, saying, ‘You wish to cause us to follow Moses and Not Jesus Christ!’, Yet to such a one I must persist that Christ is the Way (Joh_14:6 ), which we walk, and when we walk in His Way we will find the mile markers of the Law and the Prophets who before us walked on this same Way, this is how we know it is the Way, the Truth and the Life with leads to the Father, or when we look at the path we are on and it has little to no resemblance to the Word of God as seen in the Scriptures or a resemblance to the life lived by Jesus Christ we know that the path we are on is not the True Way.

Employing that phase, and more hopefully that concept, of ‘Sola Scriptora’ to it’s further reaching end: It is the very goal of this compilation of Scriptural evidence to terminate in the Realistic facts of What, Why, How The Lord’s Supper is to be observed, by Scripture Alone, Systematically, and Theologically. Defensible.

The Last Supper and it’s relation to the LORD’s Supper

So let us start here at the Last supper where that great and glorious proclamation is made and consider some of the text. Going back before the time of the actual meal being eaten where Christ reveals the analogical Bread and Wine, here is the setting:

Mat_26:17 Now before* the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?

Luk_22:7 Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

Luk 22:8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

If you are following along in the Standard Bible (KJV) you will notice that Mathew has been rephrased, and that according to a better translation which is consistent with the Law of the Festival of Pascha and of Unleavened bread which was being observed, a Law which we have very plainly it’s directives in the book’s of Exodus, particularly in Exo_12:1, and Exo_13:1, which we will look at next.

Regardless of the directives to be discussed as of yet, it is seen that Christ our Lord and his disciples were come to Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover feast called in both the Hebrew and the Greek Scriptures the Pascha, a term which most Christian peoples to this day still use, a term which was being synonymous used beside the term ‘Easter’ in Western Europe. (At the end of this message I wish to offer a studied understanding of the word Easter and it’s relation to the Lord’s Supper.)

Seen throughout the writings of the Act’s of Christ and those in his day, as found in the books we call the Gospels, the Passover is mentioned time and again, it is no doubt that Christ as a Judean celebrated this feast with his family and friends, and even while the Temple stood the disciples came and worshiped in Jerusalem in the beauty of holiness. (a concept we do not understand)

In order to understand the reason for the divergence of the reading of the KJV as I had done with allowance of the Greek text, as this divergence was not decide to be done so with out looking at the literal Greek first, to consult it’s literal reading according to the manuscripts, as is evidently not conveyed in the KJV Lawfully.

The Law

of the

Passover / Pascha

Exo_12:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,

Exo 12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

Exo 12:3 Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

Exo 12:4 And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

Exo 12:5 Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

Exo 12:6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

Exo 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

Exo 12:8 And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

Proto- Preparation

So let us reconsider:

Mat_26:17 Now before the feast of unleavened bread…

This literally reads ‘τη δε πρωτη / the de prote ‘, where we see the word Prote as in ‘Proto’ as we use it in the English, that is that it was Before ‘the Azumon’ (των αζυμων) that is the Greek construction of the word used in Exodus 12 of the LXX for ‘unleavened bread’ (αζυμα), called in Hebrew MTzEh /מצה .

Thus, the preparation being made would have been Christ speaking to his disciples before the Passover and the days of unleavened bread.

Here is yet another important point, the words are lacking to construct a literal reading of ‘ day of the feast of unleavened bread’ , this is why our worthy KJV translators of the text place italics for some of the words listed in your bible, rather the literal reference is to the Azumon it self, that is the incident of unleavened bread. The Disciples were adhering to the very words of YHWH to Moses which required the removal of leavened bread proto- preparation, in other words the disciple were asking in advance to prepare according to the Law of God. (των αζυμων προσηλθον / ton azumon pro-selthon / of the unleavened-bread proceeded).

So here is where the Lord and his disciples are heading, the time of the Feast is coming, followed in any Gospel account prior it is seen that Jesu had been walking for a bit to arrive on time according to the month described by Moses prior via the WORD of the LORD.

Now consider out of chronology, that which is spoken to Israel after the very first Passover in Egypt is accomplished, and proclaimed to be established year by year, as to how and why is is kept, and the preparation Christ and his disciples exerted to keep the feast in compare to most ‘Communion’ celebrations today or yesterday:

Exo 13:3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.

Exo 13:4 This day came ye out in the month Abib.

Exo 13:5 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service in this month.

Exo 13:6 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.

Exo 13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.

Exo 13:8 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.

Exo 13:9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD’S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.

Exo 13:10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.

So if it was yet to be seen why this preparation before hand of this feast was important to the disciples it is because they are men of God’s Law, they Faithfully listened to the Word of YHWH God, with forethought (an aspect of life in general which is lacking in Christian’s today, yet when one is raised in a lawful environment), this very nature of thoughtfulness is embed into the important circumstances of life, as to keep one far from sin according to God’s Law, it is yet again an example of faith in action, a presentation of Sanctification for the disciple’s of Jesus.

Some words on Easter

What came first the Cardinal direction of East or the easter egg?

Most in our world today recon this time of the year known as Easter time as the time of Christ’s passion and resurrection. Yet as well, Easter has been stained by spring time festival partial to a Pagan observance called by a similar name. The term Easter has a reference to goddess of both the middle east and Europe properly spelled and maybe pronounced OSTaR, as a Spring time festival of this name is found from Ireland to Persia in the Ancient world all pronounced similarly yet different, and even differently at different times in history by the same genetic people. The word Easter is intrinsically related to the English word East, as in the cardinal direction from which the sun rises in the morning.

Yet the question always is what came first the Cardinal direction of East or the easter egg?

And that is a great question, which proverbially rhymes with with the philosophic thought of the same idea.

Primarily I must say that strictly on a European etymology the word East has little remaining to an Idolatrous origin, yet there is a commingling which is historically and antiquitously able to be surmounted concerning the word, even in the furthest reaches of so called Germanic origins, yet lets dive a bit more biblical. and ancient.

Even in Israelite ancient Society which was under the influence of God’s Law (Torah) this term was as well used for the direction of the sun rise, a term where we English speakers still find etymology. If one were to contemplate this term Easter, the first place is the direction of the East, this is on account of the Natural Heavenly point in which the Sun and moon reach in this Season as we call it, the sun at it’s equinoctial position proceeds to the furthest point East in the Spring. If we were to look at the Book of Psalms a reference to 3 of the 4 cardinal directions are mentioned:

Psa_75:6

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.

Here in this Psalm, the word East is derived from the Hebrew word

M-UTzA / מוצא (H4161 –

From H3318; a going forth, that is, (the act) an egress, or (the place) an exit; hence a source or product; specifically dawn, the rising of the sun (the East)…

This word is recognized as rooted in YTzA / יצא , which is both spelled TzA throughout the scriptures and literally means to Go Forth, it is used for instance in Gen_8:16, when the Word relays that Noah went forth from the Ark

(H3318A primitive root; to go)

The Word TzA or Y-Tza or E-sTzA, literally references the place of East-ern extremity from which Sun ‘comes forth’ in the Spring time mornings.

Undoubtedly, the Canaanite goddess of spring OSTaRoTH / Astaroth, which has a completely different Hebrew Spelling has a connection to the spring feast of paganism as well and in examining the Hebrew Bible.

Particularly in Deuteronomy this Spring time blessing which offers evidence of the eleaborate amalgamation of Paganism and pre-Christianity is seen:

Deu_7:12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:

Deu 7:13 And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep

In the Hebrew text this last mention of ‘flocks of sheep’ is U-OSTRoTH TzAN-K, if recall is made of the above words in focus you will see the root word of TzA (brought forth) in TzAN (Sheep) and the word OSTRoTH which is the word for flock or increase…

Case and point: Sheep increase normally in the Spring Time.

A point as well to be made is the animal which is used by YHWH to celebrate the Lawful spring time festival Passover (Pascha) is a ram lamb, which is a male yearling sheep or goat, as well the Heavenly constellation of Spring has been from antiquity Aries which is Greek for Ram.

So here is the run down: Our Hebrew derived English word East is the root of Easter, the cardinal direction of East which is the Spring time direction of the Sun at that time of the year. A cardinal direction of East is the Hebrew word -YTzA / ETsA which is related to the Hebrew word for Sheep / TzAN due to Spring lambing which is collectively called OSTRoTH/Astoroth in Hebrew: thus the Spring feast of Passover/ Pascha is conceivably going to over lap with ANY other spring time Pagan festivals which has much similarity to the YHWH God ordained Feast of Passover and it’s concurring celebration of Unleavened Bread.

Yet, Just because it’s a spring time feast named after a Natural Cardinal direction with an association to Sheep, like Passover, doesn’t make it the right Way as prescribed by the Scriptures and Sanctified by God’s Law.

Remember the Memorial

A compilation on the Sabbath and the New Moon

Compiled by JS Lowther

Forward

This winter (2017/18) I have received many questions, as well as received requests to explain how to observe the New Moon, and more importantly to show that the New moon is part of the Sabbath as commanded by the 4th Commandment. On that account this compilation of facts and evidence is offered. Some of the information in this study is overview, and those who keep up with Bro. JS Lowther’s material will have looked at it many times, and have heard it times uncounted, but repetition is an aid to memory.

Yet if some have not listened to the series “What is Time?” (which may be found at renewedcovenantministry.com), or have not looked at the study compilation “Sabbath Logic”, it would be an aid as well to help in reaping some of this information; however, noting is more important than a true study of the Word of YHWH God in the Sincerity of the heart of one pleading for instructions to behold wonderful things from God’s Law.

Because, of the Newness of thought that comes with this information when considering it from a 21st century mind set and culture it is advantageous for the one considering the concept of a Lunar based Sabbath to take a good look at organic laws, specifically from Genesis 1 & 2 in a exploded method: taking time to consider these established principles of the rest of the Scriptural narrative and Law, it is for this reason the preface of this work is serving as well as the definition section for this compilation.

Preface

Scripture Alone

(Sola Scriptora)

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven

to divide the day from the night;

and let them be

for Signs, and for Seasons, and for Days, and Years:

Genesis 1:14

And on the seventh Day God ended his work which he had made;

and he Sabbathed on the seventh Day from all his work which he had made.

And God blessed the seventh Day, and sanctified it:

Because in it he had Sabbath from all his work which God created and made.

Genesis 2:2-3

Remember the sabbath Day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God:

in it thou shalt not do any work,

thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter,

thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle,

nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Exodus 20:8-10

It is a Sign between me and the children of Israel for ever:

for in six Days YHWH made heaven and earth,

and on the seventh Day he Sabbathed, and was refreshed.

Exodus 31:17

Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,

the Seasons of YHWH ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations,

these are My Seasons.

Six Days shall work be done:

but the Seventh Day is the Sabbath of Sabbath, an holy convocation;

ye shall do no work: it is the Sabbath of YHWH in all your dwellings.

Leviticus 23:2-3

Pay attention to the English words above.

Use a concordance and look up the Hebrew and Greek meanings, and continue to do so through out the Scriptures that follows.

Below are James Strong’s Lexicon of the Hebrew Language

The Hebrew characters have been corresponded to Phonetic English equivalent using capitol Roman lettering for direct correspondence.

Signs (H226- אותowth / AUTh- related to H225/H853[- את– AyThApparently contracted from H226 in the demonstrative sense of entity; properly self (but generally used to point out more definitely the object of a verb or preposition, even or namely): – (As such unrepresented in English / with the exception of the word “that”.] (in the sense of appearing); a signal, as a ensign, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.: – mark, miracle, (en-) sign, token.)

Seasons (H4150- מועדה מעד מועדmo-ade / MUOD/ MUD- From H3259; properly an appointment, that is, a fixed time or season; specifically a festival; conventionally a year; by implication, an assembly (as convened for a definite purpose); technically the congregation; by extension, the place of meeting; also a signal (as appointed beforehand): – appointed (sign, time), (place of, solemn) assembly, congregation, (set, solemn) feast, (appointed, due) season, (set) time (appointed). This Very important word shall be dealt with in detail below.

Days H3117- יום– yôm / YUM-From an unused root meaning to be hot; a day (as the warm hours), whether literally (from sunrise to sunset, or from one sunset to the next), or figuratively (a space of time defined by an associated term), (often used adverbially): – age, day, days …(process of) time,

Years ( H8141- שׁנה– shânâh / SaNEh- from H8138 (to fold, that is, duplicate (literally or figuratively; by implication to transmute (transitively or intransitively): – do (speak, strike) again, alter, double;) a year (as a revolution of time).

In Light of the Evidence

By reading the a fore listed verses of Gen 1:14-18 to Genesis 2:2-3, and then to Exodus 20:8-11, and that to Exodus 31:13, and that to Leviticus 23 a pattern should appear based upon Scripture Alone (Sola Scriptora), to teach us to pay attention to the lights in the heaven for the determination of time as it pertains to the creator and His worship, as well as to the creation and their worship of the creator. Time is among the most universal aspects of life, no mater who you are or where you are, or what you are, as a creation you and all things are subject to time, and by such indisputable facts it is irrefutable that as Genesis 1 declares, that subjection is the Rule given to the lights of Heaven by the Creator. Thus, as those who are subject to time, when we chose to redeem that time with Godly Worship, such worship must be allocated by the Law of the Creator as it has been revealed both in the observable heavens and in the revealed Word as found in the Scriptures. We may by using God’s decreed and established ordinances of the Heavens as will never pass away (PS 147) to understand from our location the necessary subjection we must bring ourselves under to align our selves with the the Law of He Who Is (YHWH) God. We have not been left ‘in the dark’ in regards to the prescription of the Sabbath, rather our self will blinds our eyes lest the Eternal light shine to bright.

To the prior point Psalm 104:19 may be understood in the context of the preceding Law which David would have written in accordance with:

Psa_104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons (עשה ירח למועדים) : the sun knoweth his going down.

It is reasonably noted that מועדים / MUODIM is not always in reference to the Sabbath or Feasts, nevertheless, the Sabbath as a MUOD(IM) is always appointed by the function of the moon.

To the contrary, try and keep track of 1 day of choice from the modern ‘week’ of the Gregorian calendar system by using the moon, it will only work for a lunation (Month). It will become apparently obvious that the two systems are not in accord, afact easily seen when considering the Gregorian date of the Catholic festival of Easter. Easter seemingly ‘moves’ from date to date, this is however due to the hybrid nature of Easter as we know it, being part Grego-pagan – based on the 7 day’s of the accepted western week and part psudo-Jewish- based on the accepted 18 year lunar average cycle of the Jews.

Now Rather consider a purely biblical calendar which is in alignment with the heavenly Lights, it is the moon which is used to determine all the appointed Feasts of YHWH God including the Sabbath as seen easily seen in Lev 23 as the first Feast described.

It is important to remember that the English word ‘Feast ‘ as used in the KJV is synonymous with the English word ‘Season(s)’, both are translated from the same Hebrew word MUOD or a variation thereof. This harmony recognizes the MUOD(IM) as being dictated and determined by the moon and sets the system for the following Appointed Feast (MUOD(IM) and Assemblies (cHaG) of Holy Convocation spoken of in Lev 23 by the patterned days of the month: 1st day / 14-15th/21-22nd which through out the Scripture are called Sabbath days.

As seen prior, and that which is an easy point of confusion in the KJV and others translations, The word ‘Feast(s)’ has two different underlying Hebrew words from which it is translated from, but those words are distinct: מועד / MUOD and חג / cHaG. This newly introduced word, cHaG generally follows with the name of the feast, such as ‘The Feast’ of unleavened bread, or ‘The Feast’ of Tabernacles’ .

Seeing the Appointed Seasons and Signs in the lights of Heaven

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world…

The Law of YHWH is Perfect,

Converting the soul:

The Testimony of YHWH is Sure, making Wise the simple.

This calendar system described in the verses read prior to this point are able to be seen and constructed by paying attention to it’s order; Psalm 19 tells us that the Heavenly firmament utters a speech and knowledge. The language of the Heavens must then be interpreted through the Scripture to form the foundation of the Natural Heavenly order YHWH has set to decree (Psa_148:1-9) and declare HIS Word through out all the earth accordingly. A large dose of natural reality is the primal tools by which one applies understanding and knowledge, in other words, for one who is unwilling to observe the natural pattern of the creation order set in the lights of heaven as a Testimony to it’s use and concede that God has created the heavenly order which is justifiably God ordained on account of His creation Word alone, their intrinsic nature yet nonetheless established by the written Word of Scriptural Testimony, with out that concession this knowledge is of no bearing, the law of God in and of it self becomes abstract and arbitrary having no firm foundation. Yet for those who do concede to the fact of the creation order and to that concession, the Testimony of the the heavens may be applied to the Scripture to straightly conclude that the Moon’s function in the determination of GOD’s very own Appointed Times, the Speech of the moon as a Heavenly Appointee decrees it’s own testimony for a declaration of the times according to it’s Ordained Order.

Day…a Time Zone

In our modern word men have imagined a non-intrinsic line which has been carefully placed and zigzagged around any lands (such as the Island of Tonga) which it may divide and cause two different days ‘by name’ to occur on the same day’ by sun light’, this line is called the “International date line” it is used to interface with time zones, it is the dividing line men have imagined into recognized existence to cross from one date into another according to the International Calendar called The Gregorian .

Yet in a light based calendar, a date line is never international, you could never cross the line and pass into one day and then put the boat into reverse and go back in to the date you came out of! Rather, a very simple yet God ordained and controlled action separates days, and that separation happens in the literal day you are in.

Just as our modern mind understands the idea of `time zones’ so must the Genesis established mind understand this idea as a concept in a biblical world view by understanding and observing Day and Evening.

To the point right division must be had in order to determine the times of the Sabbaths, to fit into the proper division of days in our specific locality as determined from evening to morning and evening again. Remembering the first mentioned portion of time division Days / Yom (s). This first aspect of the lights are inculcated into the total formula I the dictates of the Sabbath and or the New MOON.

There are two types of ‘days’ (Hebrew:YoM(IM):

  1. The whole Day: YoM (Evening to evening ‘the 24hr’ day)

  2. The light period of Day: YoM

Gen_1:5 shows both the above.

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.

And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Seen in the operation of the lights of heaven in the prior 2 points both types of Day are present, Gen 1:5 has the functionary nature of the lights built into the function itself.

Evening and morning are the ordained order of heavenly time as the division of day from night and from day to day, this will happen with in our own locality.

Psalms 104:23 tells that:

(23) Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labor until the evening (ערב / ORaB)

This is not to say that Psalm 104:23 is a direct reference to the Sabbath, but rather to show that every day men normally stop their labor when the dusk of evening sets in, Yet in this same way the 6th day of the week preceding the Sabbath day would end ones labors for the week in Sabbath rest.

The line -Evening

For confirmation that ORaB is referring to Dusk we may also consider:

Proverbs 7:9 In the twilight, in the evening (ערב / ORaB), in the black and dark night:

Nehemiah 4:21 So we laboured in the work: and half of them held the spears from the rising of the morning till the stars appeared.

As well many obvious observation may be seen in the text of Scripture to this point, but it is this simple logic conveyed in these two verses which help to describe Evening from a Biblical perspective. That is when the stars appear, also called twilight or Evening, that is a blending or mixing of light and dark.

In the understanding of a Day, it’s end and beginning can bee clearly seen in Genesis 1, but most importantly this point must be understood by a collective civil body called a Church, with Elders to judge and establish the concept of Days and by such a basis for the MUOD(I) for the local Congregation’s worship for the appointed Seaosns: Sabbath, New Moon and Feast days, a determination which only stands as true when established on the Law of God in harmony with the Appointing of the moon’s seasons with in the Year, to determine what Days the Moon is Appointing as the MUOD(I) of YHWH according to Leviticus 23.

Refresher:

If the words season and feast are both translated from the same Hebrew root word ‘MUOD’, and the lights in the heaven are for seasons (Gen 1:14-18), and seasons are appointed by the moon (Psa_104:19), and the Sabbaths are feasts (Lev 23), and the weekly 7th Day Sabbath sets the (cHaG) feasts that are proclaimed by the Seasons, then the system is to be used as one and the same as YHWH God has Appointed; Moreover if the covenant Sabbath sign as described in Exodus 31:13-17, are the literal signs of the moon’s seasons to be proclaimed by local congregations who share in the same day period from evening to evening for assembly, then the Signs seen in the moon show Seasons or Feasts, and according to the Sun’s agricultural seasons throughout the year the days are assembled upon.

The Sabbath- The Week’s End

In observation of the moon and it’s ‘season’ it will be observed that the moon’s weekly progression, progresses in “phases” which are spaced at a 7 day interval causing ample evidence for the moon’s plural MUOD(IM) of Psalm 104:19 to be used to appoint the MUOD(I) of Lev 23:2’s personal season or feasts of YHWH to be proclaimed by the children of Israel, a proclamation which would be proclaimed according to the Heavenly event which literally happens every month and remembered by a Sign every week/sabbath.

Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep:

for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations;

that ye may know that I YHWH doth sanctify you.

Exodus 31:13

From the Moon is the Sign of Feasts…

Functionally, The apocryphal book of the Wisdom of Jesus the son of Sirach 43:6-10 presents an ancient perspective of a post captivity Israelite, having his text in the LXX Greek we have the ability to also understand this perspective. While some may not respect the books labeled Apocrypha as canon, they must be at least regarded as presenting an ancient perspective; Jesus son of Sirach put it thus as pertaining to the heavenly function:

6 He made the moon also to serve (appear) in her season for a declaration of times, and a sign of the world.

7 From the moon is the sign of feasts, a light that decreaseth in her perfection.

8 The month is called after her name, increasing wonderfully in her changing (Hebrew word for month: cHoDeSh) being an instrument of the armies (Camp pitched) above, shining in the firmament of heaven;

9 The beauty of heaven, the glory of the stars, an ornament, giving light to the highest places of the Lord

10 At the commandment of the holy one they will stand in their order, and never faint in their watches.

One of the ways we can be sure that Sirach originally wrote this book in Hebrew, is that he him self admits so in the opening of this book which was copied by Jesu(s) Sirach’s son. Moreover, in this section the Hebrew word for month is being spoken of and not the Greek (men/month) in regards to the word ‘month’, yet Sirach’s writing is only found at this time in the Greek Septuagint: The Hebrew word on the other hand is cHoDeSh / חדשׁ , meaning to renew: ( Strong’s #H2320-חדשׁ-From H2318-to be new; causatively to rebuild; the new moon.)

From the wisdom of Sirach, we see not only the clock work or the moon but that of the stars with it in the back drop. The moon traveling through the stars in the firmament of Heaven is seen as a camp on high standing watch. The moon and stars work together in Sirach’s mind, and the moon is no doubt the “sign / σημεῖον (LXX G4592) of the feasts / ἑορτῆς (LXX G1859), among those “feasts” of the post captivity Israelite’s was the weekly Sabbath / seventh day as the Law in Leviticus 23 has commanded.

In relation to this point is to show the Greek text of Sirach to use the same words used as in the Septuagint LXX of Lev 23 for (feasts / ἑορτῆς (G1859) and in Exo_31:13-17 ( sign /σημεῖον (G4592). Some may prefer to make no connection to these Greek words, but the evidence is becoming overwhelming.

As the moon makes declaration of time, it must therefore be a declaration of the week and thus of the Sabbath.

The Declaration

If Lev_23:1-12 seats the Sabbath as a Feast and / or Season, and names specific Sabbaths of Convocation or cHaG, as are named, the Sabbaths with in it should be able to show the weekly seventh day by a holistic pattern or system (simple Algebra):

Starting with the earliest daily date given in the list, to allow Sirach’s statement explain it self, Considert the feasts of the 1st month, on the 14th day at even is reckoned as the 15th day of the month, just as the 21st at even is the 22nd day at evening as well, yet this shows the order of Sabbatical observation in relation to the lunar month. Also, as seen in the first month so is the 7th month, yet this Month begins it’s explanation from the 7th New Moon called The Feast of Trumpets which is the 1st day of the 7th month. Directly after this date the next date in the 7th month is the again the 15th day with the 22nd following and ending the Feast of Tabernacles. This Law of Seasonal Rememberance was placed in the Law for our instruction and furnishing (1 Tim 3:16), the lesson is to see Israel’s Feasts as the key to YHWH’s Calendar which is Observably seen throughout the earth and declared from the heavens.

Special Notice: “at even(ing)” reckoning brings in understanding the daily use of evening throughout the Scriptures and specifically in Leviticus 23 these two ways are referenced to show how there are two ways to understand the same day using the evening time zone.

Remember / זכור

(ZiKUR)

The Sabbath day, to keep it holy…

by THE

NEW MOON

Num 10:2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

Num 10:3 And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Num 10:4 And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee.

Num_10:10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial (זכרון /ZiKRUN) before your God: I am the LORD your God.

The trumpet was blown to assemble the people, a fact attested to in the Memorial of the blowing of the trumpet on the 1st day of the 7th month, the Feast of Trumpets prior discussed:

Lev 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

Two things should be noted:

1st. The1st day (new moon) of the 7th month is a memorial of the blowing of the trumpets.

2nd. A Trumpet is commanded to blown on every 1st day of the month, (begging of the month or New moon)

Many arguments are fueled by the questions address below:

Q. why would YHWH recommend a sabbath on a new moon if every new moon is a ‘Sabbath’ and has already been a ‘sabbath’ since creation?

A. The evidence from the text ALSO commands that the trumpet be blown as a MEMORIAL on the new moon this was to be done according to Numbers 10:10 EVERY new moon, thus the same answer is found in the text for both questions, it is because it is for a Memorial, that is so Israel Remembers:

H2146 זכרון / ZiKRUN From H2142; ZiKUR the two words are the same, one being the memorial or remembrance it self, the other being the remembering.

At this point there should be no doubt that the reason for ZiKUR’s use is in connection with:

Exo 20:8 Remember (ZiKUR) the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Exo 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

Exo 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God…

As the scope of Leviticus 23 is the Sabbatical Feasts in it Yearly cycle, thus

The 4th commandment could just as well say make Memorialize the sabbath day to keep it holy

The law of the feast of trumpets is the template to Memorialize or Remember the new moon’s role in the Sabbath.

The below monthly sabbath cycle of 9 example months are a common way the sabbath may cause remembrance by the new moon.

It is important to remember that the 4th Commandment does not legislate 1 day of sabbath / rest, but 6 days of work, thus the Biblical and Heavenly culture engendered by the Law of YHWH God looks at the week as to include the extended feastival holiday of the New Moon from the 28th day at evening, the 29th day until the end or evening of the 1st day or New Moon, this causes the work week to pick back up on the 2nd day of the month Every Month to continue the specified 6 day work week the newt 4 weeks.

That which is underlined are Sabbaths ‘week-ends’, which include the New moon.

Though the New Moon starts the New Month it is the end of the Week and part of the Sabbath and not one of the 6 work days.

CHART

This is only an example of six lunar months with the Sabbath being remembered.

By using the lunar cycle according to the template given in Leviticus 23, particularly in reference to the memorial of the New Moon of the 1st day and the continuation of the 7 day weeks unto the 15th day and then the 22nd day of the month for the weekly Sabbath, albeit to set the feasts of Israel, it as well shows the Heavenly decreed, yet biblically grounded Calendar of every sign, season, day and year.

Remembering the end of the working week by Sabbath every month evidently includes the time of the New Moon following the 29th day, a continuation of the 7 day week proceeding the 22nd day prior mentioned. and this in conjunction with the 4th Commandment are we able to see the value of the new moon as not only a transition from new month to new month but as a Remembrance point for the weekly Sabbath, and seeing the Sabbath it self as a completion or a fulfillment of time; and thus, in effect the feast of the new moon is seen as the sabbath to the month it self as it’s end, followed by the first day of the moonth, the new moon of the next month come, it is a rest and a new beginning in keeping the sabbath regulated. As well in this way is the Commandment strictly followed, 6 days shalt thou work…with only one exception on the day of soul affliction of the 10th day of the 7th month, the day of Atonement is the only day in the Whole Year that will have a Sabbath of rest out side of the lunar cycle, which due to it’s afflictive nature stands to reason. Unlike using a non-light based day, such as ‘saturn’s day or sun’s day’ allowing the appointed seasons of the moon will not break the fourth Commandment.

Shew Bread

Shows the Sabbath

The law recognized the New Moon as part of the Sabbath of the people of Israel, the show bread alter witnesses this through out Scripture, starting in the Law the New Moon and the Sabbath are the day(s) mentioned for the setting out of the shew bread. This is yet another element to prove the ordering and to ‘shew’ the formula from the all of the prior mentioned verses based upon Genesis Organic Laws of the 4th creation day with the Commandments and statutes of the 4th Commandment as a way to know the Realistic Word of God.

  • Lev_24:5-9 :Shew bread to be set in order on the Sabbath

And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof… And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before YHWH. And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto YHWH. Every sabbath he shall set it in order before YHWH continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant… (Lev_24:5-9)

  • Exo_40:17-24: Shew bread to be set in order on the New Moon

And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month (And it came to pass in the first month, in the second year after their going forth out of Egypt, at the new moon

Moses reared up the tabernacle…And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail. And he set the bread in order upon it before YHWH; as YHWH had commanded Moses…

(Exo_40:17-24 Brenton-LXX)

1Sa 20:5 And David said unto Jonathan, Behold, to morrow is the new moon, and I should not fail to sit with the king at meat: but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at even.

1Sa 20:18-19 Then Jonathan said to David, To morrow is the new moon: and thou shalt be missed, because thy seat will be empty. And when thou hast stayed three days, then thou shalt go down quickly, and come to the place where thou didst hide thyself…

1Sa 20:24 So David hid himself in the field: and when the new moon was come, the king sat him down to eat meat.

1Sa 20:25 And the king sat upon his seat, as at other times, even upon a seat by the wall: and Jonathan arose, and Abner sat by Saul’s side, and David’s place was empty.

1Sa 20:27 And it came to pass on the morrow, which was the second day of the month…KJV

(Scholars and professers of the Hebrew text as well as Jerome’s Vulgate written in Latin agree to the understanding which is present in the Bishops Bible, as follows:

1Sa_20:27 But on the morowe, whiche was the second day of the newe moone, Dauids place was emptie againe …

The Hebrew text reads החדשׁ the new moon / the month + השׁני the second

In other words, the Hebrew text does not use the common expression generally used throughout the Hebrew Text. Just to head off opposition: this exact Hebrew phrase is used to refer to the literal ‘Second month’ 4 times in scripture, but the context of 1 Samuel 20:27 is entirely unable to accommodate this meaning, as the context shows an obvious 2 days David missed meat, as well as the time scheduled by David and Johnathan.

In the Hebrew Scriptures the day of the month is preceded or succeeded by the number or name of the month, as is seen in the following two examples:

Lev_23:34 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month, there shall be a feast of tabernacles seven days to the Lord.

1Ki_12:32 And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.

The Next part of the Story

1Sa_21:4-6 : Shew Bread Set in order after a 2 day New Moon

1Sa 21:5 And David answered the priest, and said unto him, Of a truth women have been kept from us about these three days, since I came out, and the vessels of the young men are holy, and the bread is in a manner common, yea, though it were sanctified this day in the vessel. So the priest gave him hallowed bread: for there was no bread there but the shew-bread, that was taken from before YHWH, to put hot bread in the day when it was taken away.

(1Sa 21:4-6 KJV)

When seeing that the men had kept themselves from women for three days, we know from the previous chapter that it was on account of the Sabbath and New Moon, especial to the sacrificial aspect which was being administrated at that time, yet in this instance. This is evidence to the point that the New moon of 1 Samuael 20 was in conjunction with the Sabbath of Leviticus 24 in support of Exodus 40.

Extra food for thought

Christ picking Grain on a New Moon Sabbath?

Luk 6:1 And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, (see chart on a 29th day sabbath followed by the 1st day of New Moon)

that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.

Luk 6:2 And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?

Luk 6:3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;

Luk 6:4 How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him

How to Observe the New Moon as part of the Sabbath

Remembering the Sabbath to understand the New Moon, And in symbiosis, we must Remember the New Moon to know the Sabbath;

In this way Genesis 2 shows us that the first sabbath available for man based on God’s light time is the first sabbath after ‘In the beginning’ or in Hebrew the ‘B’RoSth’, that is ‘In the Head’ of time, the New Moon in Hebrew is also called the RoS H’cHoDeS or ‘Heading the Renewed Moon’ which as the hands of a clock easily give example, the New Moon preceded the first day of creation which occurred before the first working day of God in direct harmony with the prior sentiment of the workings of the Monthly Sabbath.

Thus, Adam man had reckoned time from the 8th day if the account is to be taken literal, the first Sabbath seen by Adam Man was the first quarter / waxing half moon.

If we as Adam were to start looking at the weeks from the half moon as the first sabbath sign, we would then have the following Sabbath as a full moon, and the next weekly Sabbath as a last quarter / waning half moon, the final weekly Sabbath to come is that of the waning crescent in continuance with new moon.

As seen in the Example chart of the Monthly Sabbath, the Sabbath in connection with the Feast of the New Moon may cause the Feast to last 3 or 2 days, that is 1 day given for the weekly Sabbath on the 29th day of the month in connection with either 1 day of New Moon on the 1st day of the next month after the 29th day of the last, OR a 30th day of celebration in connection with the last Sabbath of the month as well adjoined to the 1st day of the Month, resembling a 3 day weekend, only with the work week resuming thereafter with the Commanded 6 days of labor.

David and Johnathan knew the coming week end had a 3 day observation, 29th, 30th and 1st day before it had happened, how did they know that, they didn’t wait to see the crescent to make plans, there was no NASA, no calendar from the bank or an app?

They used knowledge and understanding, we are in need of today.

HERE is a POSSIBLE way they predicted the duration of the coming New Moon before it happens from a simple and ancient perspective: This particular approach assumes an individual is away from an observant local Assembly (this would not be the case with David and Johnathan).

The observant can start at what ever sign he see’s in the heavens prior to the last quarter / waning crescent and the New Moon, mark the first quarter and /or the full moon as Sabbath. Using the day of whatever sign (half or full) as the weekly Sabbath falling within the day between the two evening, one evening to begin and the following to end the Sabbath day of that quarterly sign (half or full moon). There after the observant should work for six days and rest one thereafter for Sabbath. The prior described seven day week is followed up to the last quarter / waning half moon: The moon will Not be seen in the evening sky during this Sabbath day, rather it will be seen at night, from solar marked midnight untill solar marked noon (not according to your wall clock!) of the Sabbath day, it is at the prior described time when the moon is observed that one may notice if the moon has a pronounced bulged (having more light) or is pronounced Concave (having less light), there will also be times which are very close to a near half and in such cases further judgment must be used.

Yet for the obvious:

  • In the case of the Sabbath moon having a pronounced concave sign it is generally safe to assume that the next Sabbath to come after six working days will be followed by 1 day of New Moon Celebration, thus the 29th and the 1st day are connected as a ‘two day week end’.

  • In the case of the Sabbath moon observation on the same last quarter / waning half moon has a pronounced bulge in it the sign it is generally safe to assume that the next Sabbath to come after six working days will be followed by the Sabbath on the 29th day followed in connection with 2 days of Celibration on the 30th and the 1st day, giving a ‘3 day week end’, there after the 2nd day of the month after the New Moon week end will begin as always the work week of 6 working days according to the 4th Commandment.

  • Caution!

If the first crescent moon is seen in the westward evening sky AT EVENING the feast and celebration of the New Moon is over and on the very next day (after evening) working days commence for 6 days there after reestablish the system for the next four weeks (6 working days and 1 sabbath day, with the final Sabbath day being intimately and insuperably connected to the New Moon).

  • It is worthy to note that, due to the ancient ways of observing the moon as to determine the coming calendar month, the day predicted by the method described to be the 30th day Must have been kept as part of the Sabbath, this would allow for the sighting of the first crescent in the evening sky which would signal the end of the New Moon festival, as described. Thus causing the day presumed to be the 30th to be in actuality the 1st and as such, it was rather the beginning of the month to come.

  • Now that we have have modern technology it raises many questions as far what day is the new moon, especially when the conjunction, that is when the moon is exactly in alignment with the sun, if that is the exact time of new moon (HoDeSh)? The technical questions arise from thinking of the moon as the hands of a clock, and this is a perfectly acceptable way to arrange the thoughts in our mind, as long as we remember that multiple hands on the heavenly clock to not align as our man made clock; rather on the heavenly clock, one hand will pass it’s appointed point (evening, new moon, new year), but the reckoning is not reckoned until all the hands have passed the appointed time as well.

In other words, if the New moon occurs early in the day, that day it occurs on is accounted as the last day of the last month, while After evening comes the new moon or new month; as well if we were to be considering the new year, it would not commence until the last day of the last month of the prior year was ended.

Technology, such as calculation, programs and now common Apps make reckoning the New Moon so easy, but it is important to not forget that we must not surrender the knowledge and understanding by which we observe the Heavens to a calculator.

Continued Logic to consider

In trying to understand the connection between the moon and the sabbath we must see that the root words for the word sabbath and seven / sabyoy are in the understanding of

These are the Strong’s numbers for the word שׁבת SaBaTh

(Here is an example of a composite definition, in so much as all the listed words are in essence the same in meaning, having no difference in the ancient texts): H7674, H7675, H7676: H7673 שׁבת saw-bath’ A primitive root; to repose, that is, desist from exertion; properly session, Infinitive of H3427 (ישׁב ya-shab-To sit down (specifically as judge, in ambush, in quiet); by implication to dwell, to remain; causatively to settle, to marry: – (make to) abide (-ing), continue, (cause to, make to) dwell (-ing), ease self, endure, establish) ,rest, interruption, cessation: – cease, sit still, loss of time…

Notice that the general meaning is to “stop where you are” or “settle down”.

Said above is that ya-shab is the infinitive, that is the action of the verb, and thus S(h)aB being the root, and common parent word of both sab(b)ath and Ya-shab: This then leads us to: שׂבעS(h)aBA / S(h)aBO being numbered : H7646, H7647, H7648, H7649 / H7650, H7651 / H7620 , H7637.

The first four numbers are understood to mean: being full, filled or satisfied: full of year or days, satisfied with bread, etc…

The meaning above as the parent word should make perfect sense in the composite understanding, that is when one”settles down”, as when he is “full of year or days” as in when one is older, as well as when he is full in the sense of being satisfied in life.

Relating to our topic: The seventh day or rather the last / fulfillment of a week: H7620 –שׁבוּע / שׁבעS(h)aBWA/ S(h)aBA – Properly passive participle of H7650 as a denominative of H7651; literally sevened, that is, a week (specifically of years): – seven, week.

The word S(h)aBoWA listed above is used in many different contexts, most dealing with what we call in English ‘weeks’, yet the biblical Hebrew understanding of a S(h)aBWA is not that which a week represents in the ‘calendar’ system of the modern world: a seven day count. Rather it is a fullness or completion of a portion of time, and as so it represents a very important point of this compilation, that is that the Sabbath is an oath God has sworn. The number H7637 – שׁבעי / שׁביעיS(h)aBYAY / S(h)aBAY –Ordinal from H7657; seventh. This word which is closely related to it’s partner S(h)aBWA in the above word groups.שׁביעי is the very word used in Gen 2:2-3 as well as in vertually every place the words “seventh day/ month/ year” occur, the word is used and rendered “swore / swear”, mentioned above, Gen 50:5, Ex 13:19 are a couple easy to see examples of the many times it is thus rendered so.

THE WORD : of GOD

pt.4

ReCap of the last 3 messages:

In the beginning of this message it was my aid to establish the Word of God as as YHWH’s own Testimony which he sent through his inspired prophets to give us the book we call the Bible, that is literally Israel’s Scriptures. In establishing the Canon or Rule of Biblical Faith, I had hoped to lay out some simple guidelines to help in studying the Scriptures in a more systematic way, based of facts of the texts and evidence offers by context as well as the relevant Natural witness which all me use to view the world around them; this was given to help us understand why we should have systematic way to establish our Faith. From that Logic the Word made flesh develops in our confession of mouth as well as in our heart by faith, as well as to give repentance for the Israel of God scattered among the Gentiles or Nation, those to whom Christ came to make of twain one New Man as specified in the parties of the New Covenant ‘the houses of Israel and of Judah, that is the Judean Nation as well as the Israelite Nation scattered through out the Greek speaking world (as evident by the Greek Septuagint and Greek New Testament).

Yet, if there is any weight at all which I fully wish to come from this message and study, it that The Scriptures, their testimony, and It’s Logic is the Logic of the WORD of God and it’s Law can not be stripped away from the man Jesu(s) Christ in his perfect life, in his redemptive death, nor in the power of His resurrection. The context of the Scriptures is Christ’s Context, the People of the Scriptures are Christ’s people, the morality or cognition of YHWH God’s perfect Law is the Law of Christ, the Christ, Messiah or Anointed of the Scripture is Christ himself. And by this calculation: The works of the Law which are from the WORD of God are to be perfected in the life of Biblical Christians, those are the Anointed. Here is our Faith according to the New Covenant / Testament.

True Faith

True Religion

The whole and total message of the Word of God is the foundation and Head of our Belief, most would in the last statement say ‘the foundation and head of our Faith’, limiting the understanding to the sanctimonious noun by which we interchange with ‘our religion’, which in a non-ignorant use of the words faith and religion, they both would carry the same verity as ‘what one truly believes’ and as such swapping the sanctimonious and vain noun we often use as religious Christians for the true and sincere belief as described in the scriptures.

If I could repeal the ignorance of the use of the word Religion to it’s moral sense and it’s original Latin interchange in to the Belief of Christ: I would cite Noah Websters 1828 as the understanding all people who call on the Name of Christ should have:

L. religio, from religo, to bind anew; re and ligo, to bind.

1. Religion, in its most comprehensive sense, includes a belief in the being and perfections of God, in the revelation of his will to man, in man’s obligation to obey his commands, in a state of reward and punishment, and in man’s accountableness to God; and also true godliness or piety of life, with the practice of all moral duties. It therefore comprehends theology, as a system of doctrines or principles, as well as practical piety; for the practice of moral duties without a belief in a divine lawgiver, and without reference to his will or commands, is not religion.

 

Rom_10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not Trusted? and how shall they Trust in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Rom_10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath Trusted our report?

Rom_10:17 So then Trust cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.


Rom_10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Rom_10:19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.

Rom 10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.

Rom 10:21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient (resisting persuasionG544 – A-Peith-oun-ta /untrusting) and gainsaying people.

Isa_65:2 I have stretched forth my hands all day to a disobedient and gainsaying people, to them that walked in a way that was not good, but after their sins.

Rom 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

Rom 11:2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,

Rom 11:3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

Rom 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal.

Rom 11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

Rom 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

Rom_11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

Blindness and Slumber hearts, void of Faith

Deu_29:4 Yet YHWH hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.

 

Rom_11:9 And David saith, (Now let me offer one again a holistic approach to understanding this specific text by starting the verse prior to Paul’s quote, an act which Paul and all NT writers expected his readers to consult, he obviously did not have an email address or even a type writer, or even a lined piece of paper bought from the store, No, Every one used papyrus and ink, that is papyri leaves pressed and dried and ink from a plant or else where to write, thus the writers of the epistles only cite pertinent portions of the context in which they expected their reader(s) to consult and ponder.

Psa 69:21 They gave me also gall for my food, and made me drink vinegar for my thirst. Mat_27:34

As seeing this application by the witnesses of the fulfillment of this psalm, we may apply the knowledge hereafter to those who will not except that Word of Faith 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.

Thus, upon the rejection of this faith Paul expounds upon the prophecy of David which was built upon the promises of God’s Law:

Psa 69:22 Let their table before them be for a snare, and for a recompense, and for a stumbling-block.

Psa 69:23 Let their eyes be darkened that they should not see; and bow down their back continually.

Psa 69:24 Pour out thy wrath upon them, and let the fury of thine anger take hold on them.

Psa 69:25 Let their habitation be made desolate; and let there be no inhabitant in their tents:

Psa 69:26 Because they persecuted him whom thou hast smitten; and they have added to the grief of my wounds.

Psa 69:27 Add iniquity to their iniquity; and let them not come into thy righteousness.

Psa 69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and let them not be written with the righteous.

Psa 69:29 I am poor and sorrowful; but the salvation of thy countenance has helped me.

Psa 69:30 I will praise the name of my God with a song, I will magnify him with praise;

Psa 69:31 and this shall please God more than a young calf having horns and hoofs.

Psa 69:32 Let the poor see and rejoice; seek the Lord diligently, and ye shall live.

Psa 69:33 For the Lord hears the poor, and does not set at nought his fettered ones.

Zeal-ous and Jealous

Desiring the knowledge of God

… I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.

Rom_11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

Rom 11:12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?

Rom 11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

Rom 11:14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation (ABP+ if by any means I should provoke to jealousyG3863 -para-Zealous) them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

Life from the Dead

(Chose Life)

Rom_11:15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

Rom 11:16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

Rom 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

Rom 11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

Rom 11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.

Rom 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

Rom 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Rom 11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

Rom 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.

Rom 11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

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.

And at this point I with to end with this citation from the New Covenant.

This is the scope of Christ’s ministry in the flesh, his forgiveness offered by His blood shed upon the cross, and the power of his resurrection, to wit the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? Rom_11:15

Hearkening back to the words of Paul in the prior Chapters, which I hope those who follow this message have looked back on:

Rom_6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

Rom 6:2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

Rom 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Rom 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Rom 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.

Rom 6:8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

Rom 6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

Rom 6:10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

Rom 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Rom 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Rom_10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not Trusted? and how shall they Trust in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Rom_10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath Trusted our report?

Rom_10:17 So then Trust cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Who is Israel in Reality?

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 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 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.

Thou shalt not Covet thy Neighbour’s house,

Thou shalt not Covet thy neighbour’s wife,

Nor his manservant, nor his maidservant,

Nor his ox, nor his ass,

Nor Any Thing That is Thy Neighbour’s.

Exodus 20:17 / Deuteronomy 5:21

 

There is no significant difference in the Hebrew text of Exodus from that of Deuteronomy for the purpose of this compilation to draw attention to,The Hebrew verb and nouns through out the text of both are identicle, English word desire as found in the place of Covet in Exodus is as well the same Hebrew word: HeMaD.

HeMaD is translated neutrally and context defines the word as to a positive or negative. Yet there is one thing to be noticed that  in seemingly every instance HeMaD can swiftly become evil in it’s context, no matter how innocent the desire, coveting, pleasure is, with in the back drop of every situation is the looming Evil of it’s desire beyond Justice or Righteousness.

In the Greek the word Epi-Thumeh-seis / επιθυμησεις G1937 is a compound word constructed into a verb, which is that of epi- added to the root word to show supper-imposition, this is still done in English words taken from Greek which we still use (Epidemic, epilogue, epitomize), that is: on, upon in the sense of beyond (G1909) + the word Thume , a word which in scripture is used to signify the essence of a matter or situation, it is the word used to describe God’s pondering on why he made wicked Adam in the earth Gen_6:6 , it is the essence of Esau’s anger against Jacob Gen_27:45, the longing of Jacob towards his fathers house Gen_31:30, as well it is essence of the inscents of the altar of YHWH Exo_25:6, the word indicates as our English still shows the ‘Theme’ of the situation, thus together this word shows the epi-theme, it is ‘beyond the theme’ the intensity of the theme. A related word, Epithem, in medical terms this a word still understood as a medical treatment to be applied externally, An external application of a topical medicine. Such as a liquid in which cloth is dipped for pain relief or healing, to be applied to an area of the body in need of treatment. Offering the Idea of placing the substance to aid upon the area; as well if the liquid in which the cloth was dipped were damaging to an area it would nevertheless be a epithem, yet not for the purpose of healing, but rather for the purpose of causing illness.

SIN is an ILLNESS,

it starts with Epithumesis

 

In the Greek construct of the 10 Commandments, as was discussed concerning Adultery, and in noticeable distinction from the Hebrew construct, Killing, Adultery, Stealing, False witness, and Covetousness are all converted into conditions; as we would understand it’s grammatical construct today, that is all of the words describing the forbidden act have the ending of ‘σεις ‘ seis ‘ or ‘εις eis ‘ , thereby rendering the commandment as a forbiddence towards a conditional behavior, such as we may understand other Greek words in English, one who has the condition of Arthritis has affliction to what was once refereed to as the Artus, arteries of the limbs, one who has Paralysis, the inability to move, is the affliction of one with a Palsy, one who has the condition of Narcosis is want to use a Narcotics or to be overly tiered, sleepy.

This choice of wording makes the prior commands including this 10th commandment a condition as well.

As the people of Scriptural Covenant, one is assumed by birth into the covenant of ones parents, this may lead to the blessing of righteousness in obedience or curse by wicked disobedience and rejection (Lev 26:44-45), yet one who is born to Parents of the Covenant are covenant children in the flesh, and before them lay a choice: to become a spiritual child of the covenant, by placing the WORD of YHWH in ones heart and mind and inward parts or to take on the body of sin and death contrary to the body of the resurrected Christ by an infectious illness which treatens the health and Common-Wealth of Israel, yea, the which is the core of the Common-Wealth, as the Ecclasia / Church as the Body of Christ can not be affected by such illness, rather when such a illness is allowed to persist with in the epidermis of the body, that is the outer layer who is member to the Common-Wealth by mere parentage and not by the personal New Covenant of Christ; those outer portions must be removed from the Common body as not to destroy the Wealth when the infection is made manifest! The Condition and illness found in this conclusionary 10th Commandment is damning and dangerous, while it’s symptoms are hidden in there early stages with in the heart and mind full of Lust or Covetousness, desire or pleasure in those things which are not intended for the families of Israel to be engaged in, it is by this same illness of Covetousness that the wicked are allowed to persist in close proximity to the Body of Christ, thereby causing the Church to be bed mates with a body of death and causing the infection to become transferable by it’s lack of self treatment with the healing power of the Spirit of God.

The Ambassador Paul admonishes us to:

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts / Covetousness thereof. Rom_6:12

Specifically, The Commandment speaks of Coveting that which is thy neighbors, as the word was used prior it is used now, with in the common-Wealth what is our neighbors is his, by the Lawful Right given by God as a Citizen, this Law aims to curb secession of God’s Kingdom contained with in the Common-Wealth of Israel’s inheritance, not only of possessions but of Covenant and Law give to the Congregation of Jacob (Deu_33:4) In Coveting that which is thy neighbors we covet that which YHWH’s has given others with in the Common-Wealth beside thee: His wife, His House, His servants, His animals or anything that is his truly. It is this Covetousness that fuels all sin contrary to the LAW, even by coveting any thing which is thy neighbors, calls upon covetousness directed towards a Kingdom of neighbors or brothers who posses the whole of God’s Law as an inheritance, thus implicating sin upon one who covets the breaking of those Commandments which seemingly to our fleshly mind only pertain to our personal relationship with YHWH; yet by moving beyond covetousness and manifesting sin in our actions we literally rob the Common-Wealth of it’s blessing and inheritance by God’s Law.

 

 

It is with this mind honed in on this illness that this last and 10th Commandment of the Common Law is spoken of by biblical context, as in the often mentioned poetry of Almighty God, this 10th command lay at the core of the very first ill against YHWH God the creator, a sin which sought to replace the very power of He Who Is God.

I-SR-A-EL

A people of Self Dominion

Ruled by the Law of YHWH GOD

The account of Genesis and the Origins of Adamic society is the pedigrees of the Ordained Common Law of ‘He who rules with God’ or ‘Israel’, it is this concept which was the intention of the dominion or governance mandate of Gen 1:26-28, and this conceptual title is found in the name given to Jacob and his son’s in the name of I-SR-AEL.

Covetousness is in the heart and mind, it is the beginning and the end of self government, that is the Governing of ones self, which is basis upon which all Commandments and Laws of God are kept, ignored or abandoned by the will of man; by the giving of this will to choose whom we will serve the nature of the spiritual likeness and image is perceived, it is at the aim of covetousness, desire or pleasure that the will of the inward man is made know and the will of the flesh made evident. It is here that Covetousness with in this Society is the Engine of both life and death, Good and Evil, blessing and cursing.

 

(EPITHUMET’ICAL, a. [Gr.] Inclined to lust; pertaining to the animal passion. Webster’s 1828)

 

Consider:

Covetousness /HeMaD, is first referenced

Gen_2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put those of the ADaM whom he had formed. (reference the LXX, and the Hebrew of Deu_5:24, Isa_6:12, Zec_11:6 as example of how this is not refering to one man named Adam)

Gen_2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 

This country where Adam Folk were set to tend and till, there was grown pleasant or coveted crops and trees, beautiful in sight, good for food, as well in ADaM’s native land were 2 very special trees: Life, and Knowledge: of course we know Knowledge teaches Good and Evil.

(after the description of the home land, the native land it is told of ADaM’s Garden)

Gen_2:15 And the LORD God took the ADaM, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Gen 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the ADaM, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Gen_2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

So, according to Gen_2:9 this tree which is forbidden, The Knowledge of Good and Evil, is a pleasant or coveted tree, but it’s effect is death to ADaM in the day he eats of it.

This is where at this time ADaM is in the Garden of the Lord, he is given provisions of food, yet he is required even at this time work, tend or till this Garden to maintain his life, as well ADaM is given dominion.

YHWH God tells the ADaM, ‘it’s all yours except for that tree, that 1 tree is mine, you can have all the others and the tree of Life, but that one tree is mine alone’ As creator YHWH God has this Right of course to reserve for Him self any thing he desired, and what YHWH desired was the knowledge of Good and Evil reserved to Him self, it was His property, and stigma attached to that tree, regardless of what the opinion on the physical make up of that tree is, it’s stigma is it’s YHWH’s, He coveted it to be His Own, His pleasure, delight or covetousness, it was His property, it was His plain and simple.

And as ADaM was made in the image and likeness of God it was as well pleasant, desirable and coveted as beautiful to the senses of ADaM as well, as to what was desired is the focus is found in the next portion of the Holy text:

Gen_3:1 Now the serpent (Eh-NaHeS, or Gk. Opis: referencing a literal Serpent type creature) was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Gen 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

Gen 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Gen_3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

 

Gen_3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good (desirable) for food, and that it was pleasant (good) to the eyes, and a tree to be desired (Coveted) to make wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

And for the present record, the serpant was not lying about the affect of the fruit of the tree, the eating of knowledge, as to open ADaM’s eyes as God’s to know good and evil, as YHWH himself says:

Gen 3:22 And YHWH God said, Behold, the ADaM is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:..

Consider Gen_3:6, this is a place where the pleasantness of this particular forbidden tree is described, wat it’s desire was, it’s pleasantness it’s Covetousness: this covetousness was spelled out and well defined by the angelic serpant, angelic, I say because this Serpent was a messenger, made by YHWH, accourding to Gen_3:1 “more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made”. Like the story of Balaam’s ass, who’s mouth was opened to persuade the madness of the YHWH fearing prophet Balaam, this Serpents mouth was opened for one reason, a reason the text clearly told us:

Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

God used this subtle beast to prove, test or try the ADaM. The Serpent plays the role of the divine revelation, an anomaly that is undoubtedly God sent, and it was, a situation so bazaar that the woman and man who partook of the situation would have to knowledgeably engage, willfully engage, that is as is shown in the woman’s contemplation of self convincing, it is description of the cognition of every action we make against another’s possessions as well as those things God has forbid his people to partake it by his parental guidance: personal desire, personal pleasure, selfishness, to the end of personal deification or heart placed Idolatry. (Leading us back to the first and second commandment, full circle.)

…believe not every spirit, but try the spirits…

…or an angel from heaven…

Gal_1:8 / 1Jn_4:1

Consider the Serpents part as described in

Deu_13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,

Deu_13:2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;

Deu 13:3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

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.

Paul as well teaches this same truth:

2Th_2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

2Th_2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

In the case of our fore bearers of ADaM Folk, they did not love the truth of God’s Word, thet didn’t believe it by Faith, they didn’t trust YHWH when He said “for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”.

 

Thus no matter where the Covetousness comes from, even if from an angel from heaven, the Word of YHWH is greater, and is sustained, the simplicity of thou shalt and thou shalt not thwarts the non-commanded constructive inferences of any approach seemingly contrary to the Word of God.

The desire we have to take for our own pleasure is being curbed by this 10th Common Law in our heart and mind, before it is manifest in our life by our coupling Covetousness, desire or pleasure’s pull with the actual committing of any other Commandment: Killing, Adultery, Stealing or False witness agaist our neighbor.

And while not directly applied by the 10th Commandment, it is undoubtedly implied by the context of the word and it’s first case example as shown in the Account of Genesis as well as that which is seen beyond the pentauch that Coventing to Not Worship YHWH by Idolitry, Vanity, Ignoring the Sabbath, or Dishonoring Parents is as well Sin, which have it’s wage to be payed as Death in it’s manifestation.

Like Brute beasts made to be…

A Society that practices Covetousness is a society that has tasted of the forbidden fruit of desire and pleasure, which in and of it’s self is a heart and mind set that is not easily curbed. Like a brute beast is drawn by repetition to return to what it desires, mindlessly drawn by the pleasure of the experience had the prior day so man partakes of the same nature. Yet as well by Grace some who are called see this nature of covetousness in the flesh and break it’s condemnation.

For it is sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of covetousness.

For without the law sin was dead. For I was alive without the law once:

but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

Rom_7:8-9

 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Rom 7:24

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord…

Rom 7:25

 

The LAW of YHWH IS TREASURE

to be Coveted!

Psa_19:10 More to be desired ( Coveted ) are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Psa 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Psa 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

Psa 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

Psa 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Solomon goes on to describe Godly Covetousness of YHWH’s treasured Law:

Pro_21:20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but foolish ADaM spendeth it up.

Pro 21:21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.

Pro 21:22 A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof.

 

Ending off with this admonition:

 

 

Rom_8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

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.
