THE LORD’S SUPPER

Christian Pascha

Sacrament of the Faith of Jesus Christ

Part 3

Analogy of Biblical Reality

Id’ like to start out by stating that many learned men of the past and present will disagree with this message, and I already know that. So for those who are living, and may hear this message, please know that I am willing to defend the points prior made and those which will be made if it were asked of me, and if the position contained hereafter were to be poised against the ‘orthodox traditional christianism’, a.k.a. Easter Sunday, I would all the more enjoy the opportunity to have a Scripture for Scripture debate of the issue!

Peace in Christ, JS Lowther

Luk_23:33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

Luk 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Luk 23:35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.

Luk 23:36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,

Luk 23:37 And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.

Luk 23:38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF JUDAH…

Luk 23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

Luk 23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

Luk 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

Luk 23:47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.

Luk 23:48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.

Luk 23:49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.

Luk 23:50 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just:

Luk 23:51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.

Luk 23:52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.

Luk 23:53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.

Luk 23:54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.

Luk 23:55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.

Luk 23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.

Here is the end of the Passover day on which our Lord was crucified, and his body lain in the garden tomb of Joseph of Arimathaea, a tomb that was not ever used and as such was not unclean by reason of a dead body, just food for thought.

Luk_24:1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

Luk 24:2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

Luk 24:3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

And moving down in to the text we read in:

Luk 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

Luk 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luk 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

In typological way let us consider the type from which this day of Christ’s resurrection stands now as an antitype:

According to God’s Law the day of the wave sheaf as it is refered to in the Law:

Lev_23:10-11,Lev 23:10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest:

Lev 23:11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.

By the month this always the 16th day, by sabbath based week this is the 1st day, the day after the Sabbath, and the prior points are the case of every month based upon the moon; yet in this case of course it is a special case, because it is the first month of the year, the Month of Abib, and that this specific sabbath after Passover is the first day of Unleavened bread, the 15th day of the month, and the day prior being the 14th day and thus Passover Day, the day of Christ’s Death and burrial.

In the continuation of this antitypical observation, the Resurrection of our Lord is impressed as an antitype of the wave sheaf of barley, As the apostle Paul has conveyed.

Now after this great Passover of Christ’s passion there are few direct citations concerning the feast, this has lead some and many in our day to neglect what we have theretofore have mentioned concerning the Paschal observation according to God’s Law.

Yet when the reference is made to the Paschal Lamb and the feast of unleavened Bread it is made to a Church which knew the festival intimately and observed it’s ordinances; for when the feast of unleavened bread is used as an analogy the analogy would only bear force upon those who understood it’s laws and ordinances.

In other words, as we have seen from this type and anti-typical relationship of the Passover’s envelopment, it’s very immersion in the blood of Christ for the ages to come, and now the power of His resurrection on the day of the wave sheaf, final application of Paul to this point in 1Co_15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept., by such a working knowledge and understanding of the Law these sacraments which are celebrated year by year, according to the Law of Faith have a practical application beyond it’s literal practice, which flows over into spiritually moral applications. But one who reads only according to the Word’s of James the brother of our Lord

Jas_1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Jas 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

Jas 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

Jas 1:20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

Jas_1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Jas 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

Jas 1:24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

Jas 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Undoubtedly, some who hears use of this passage in reference to keeping the Paschal meal of communion according to the commandment will say “That is not speaking of keeping Passover at all, but of setting aside filthiness and the abundance of evil.”, yet I beg to the contrary of the happening of the application of the Law of the festivals by faith, and what affect it would have upon the Christian? It would be truly a God ordained analogy of the life of the disciple of Christ, that is the Christian, and I boldly say, the feasts of the LORD YHWH would be more effective than any man ordained festival could ever be by it’s very origin, that is from Scripture Alone!

Let us consider this exact teaching the Apostle Paul shows us, as

1Corinthians 5:7 is often the verse most Puffed Up to purport an apostolic prohibition of the Paschal Meal as revealed in Scripture.

This area is once again a subject of debate and confusion, yet it is not because of the lack of context, rather it is once again the over spiritulization of the Passover our Lord was crucified upon in preference to the Passover as taught by the Scriptures alone and observed by the Lord himself. Nevertheless, this out look and attitude is a very much needed part of the Christian Pascha, as it is intimately connected to the above verses of James, and this harmony of practical analogy used by Paul is of dire necessity in the House of God, his Church.

Let us expose the text and not ignore context. This discourse starts in the prior chapter when the words “puffed up” are used to discribe arogant men filled with spiritualizations of the way’s once held, of course “puffed up” Paul anologically takes to the next level of application.

Let’s consider:

1Co 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.

1Co 5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

1Co 5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,

1Co 5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

1Co 5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

Now consider thus far, these people in the church of Corinth, have the fornication of incest being committed with in the church, and the church as a whole has not repented.

The anology:

1Co_5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

1Co 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

1Co 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Now, unless the season of Passover was at hand at the time of this epistles writing, the analogy is that an analogy using the feast of unleavened bread and the strictness by which leaven must be removed so that the unleavened bread is truly unleavened and not sour dough (remember there was no store bought yeast packages in these days, all leavening was sour dough).

1Co 5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

1Co 5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

1Co 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

So even if this epistle was penned at Passover season, in no way is Paul relaying or deriving doctrine, rather he is using an analogy the Corinthian Christians knew, which was taught by the Scriptures, such as Exo_12:1, and Exo_13:1, which they MUST HAVE observed to understand the analogy, of treating fornicators, covetous, idolaters, railers, drunkards, or extortioners as leavened bread after Christ the antitypical Passover Lamb has been slain. In other words, Paul’s lesson has no bearing at all on the keeping of the feast, rather the feast which the Corinthians know how to keep is instructing them, on how to deal with such puffed up persons…Cast them out, and especial do not Commune with them, till they repent if it is possible. Moreover, if we this lesson has any thing to teach those who keep Passover and unleavened bread according to the rule of Faith as found in the Bible, and enveloped in the passion of Christ, it is that when we keep this Sacrament we should do so with brethren who are not puffed up in this way, but who are of sincerity and truth.

An in the same light after much discourse Paul again makes yet an applicable analogy, Paul had dealt with along the way in reference back to the issues is you would read from Chapter 5 till this point, all are applicable in the life of a christian as it pertains to the Paschal meal, yet the analogy is in the statement of judgment of ones self and of the church as the body of Christ is to be purged from the prior sinful attributes mentioned in Chapter 5.

1Co_10:14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.

1Co 10:15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.

1Co 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

1Co 10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

And upon such sentiments the apostle goes further to say:

1Co_11:20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord’s supper.

1Co 11:21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.

1Co 11:22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.

It is important to note that the ‘church of God’ is in reference as it always is, to the people of the Ecclesia, the congregation and not of a building with four walls. As folks often loose track of this fact here.

1Co_11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

1Co 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

1Co 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

1Co 11:26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.

1Co 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

1Co 11:28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.

1Co 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.

1Co 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

1Co 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

1Co 11:33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.

The analogy for the Church as the body of Christ, represented in the bread of the Paschal meal, it if they are at the Lord’s Supper with the heart of Faith, yes on Passover, at the communion meal, but not in the literal form for if this were so the ‘eating in hast’ of Exodus 12 would seem unruly, yet all are to eat in haste together, helping one another and not being puffed up as we are to be unleavened in the Lord, as his body, yet not negligent of our good works and duties in the Lord as his body and as his bread.

The lesson Paul teaches these Corinthians which obviously kept the Passover very much as Exodus teaches, and how the disciples of our Lord continued to teach, or else these Corinthians would of had no knowledge of these biblical Law in relation to the Faith of Jesus Christ.

Rather Christians are the analogical bread of the body of Christ, just as Christ our Lord is the analogical Paschal Lamb, and as the Lamb is slain before the feast is began yet eaten on that following twilight at night with unleavened bread and bitter herbs, and with the cup of salvation and blessing, so is the church as a people to live out that analogy b the power of the Spirit which is only derived from a realistic and practical living of the feast it self.

This is the analogical message of the Paschal meal, as kept in the body and the blood of Christ by the Sacramental Elements which are prior directed in the Law of God, the elements which teach the analogical lesson rather than abrogate and rearrange the feast into an unidentifiable order and arrangement.

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.

Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness

Against Thy Neighbour.

Exodus 20:16

and

Neither Shalt Thou Bear False Witness

Against Thy Neighbour.

Deuteronomy 5:20

In the English Bible of our KJV both Exo_20:16 and Deu_5:20, seem to be identical with the exception of the first 3 words of the forbidance. Yet in the Hebrew, there is one more noticeable difference than the arrangement of the negative command, and that is the word translated ‘False’.

In the prior and related compilation study of this same series on the Common Law of GOD, pt 2. the 3rd Commandment regarding taking ‘YHWH’s Name in Vain’ has covered these words to be discussed and how they are related as part and parcel to the understanding of this 9th Commandment, it is evident that without having a firm grasp on the falsity and vanity of the violation of the 3rd Commandment, the actual and literal understanding of the violation against the 9th Commandment contained in sinful treatment of one’s neighbor in somewhat incomprehensible. So it is that some information contained in the message relayed from the 3rd Commandment will be repeated in this compilation as well, yet for a more comprehensive understanding of this Law of God particularly, I would ask that one first listen to the 2nd part of this series which regards the 3rd Commandments. (The Common Law pt.2 LINK)

Before getting in to the 2 Hebrew words of focus and more importantly their meaning and then effect upon the Common-Wealth in their violation and in their keeping; one word, which is actually a prefix on the Hebrew word ‘neighbor’, is the word ‘against’, bear a false witness ‘against thy neighbor’. Some have supposed this Commandment to only disallow falsification of witness in the negative affect, against a neighbor, that is to damn thy neighbor, to bring a false witness against ones neighbor, in a court room setting, as in to bring a charge against him, yet this application is contrary to biblical context, as to be provided. The Hebrew word for ‘against’, as translated in the KJV is simply the prefix of the letter ‘B’ to the word neighbor, ‘B’ also is translated and means ‘to, unto, near, by, beside, before’ , the prefix represents the Idea of closeness, it as per holistic scriptural context is not limiting the 9th Commandment to a negative witness by falsehood in a court setting or in a setting of accusation of judgment, rather it is the general bearing of a falsehood ‘to, unto or by’ ones neighbor, the Idea of bringing falsehood to him in any way…un-discript. As well the very word witness implies Truth, as a thing certainly known.

An Illustration in Allegory

When Breading False with Witness,

Witness is always Forced!

The Common-Wealth of Israel is to guard against Falsehood in it’s Common Law, which therefore imposes it’s self upon the citizenry and society as a thing common within the action’s between neighbor to neighbor, the Idea of excepted falsity amid neighbors or friends in general conversation, in simple and mindless lying I wish to dispelled by an illustration to show how falsity is a repugnant standard by which to live, as it is a standard of destruction that will hereby allow vanity to rule the Nation from it’s Justice system down, then from it’s children upward in it’s natural order; Falsehood and Witness are two opposing creatures that have the ability to mate,albeit only in the captivity of ones mind, yet they shall bring forth fruit in the world.

After the vain Idol of falsehood is bowed to, by the committing of adultery by False with Witness , the half bred of in-absolute and meaningless conversation shall be begat for 3 to 4 generations, insomuch as this iniquity will pervade to the utmost: into the law and the covenant of the very Common-Wealth it was codified to preserve: In a society created to be seated upon God’s Word these mongrels will be paraded as legitimate, the bastard will thereby fulfill it’s own destiny by replacing the true, perfect and purified Law of God with it’s own dynastic equivalent in destructive force in opposition to the Law which sought to give life. The wage of Sin shall be payed, and the unfortunate truth is that it is only those who will not kissed that Idol or bowed to it’s likeness that will realize it’s father is Falsehood and that Witness had been taken by force, Justice has been perverted!

This is the state we look at in this situation, this is the importance of the establishment of the Common-Wealth of Israel to be seated on the Law of God which persists by the Holy Spirit of Truth and Wisdom.

The Two 

Forms of Realistic Falsehood

VAIN & SIQ

Consider:

In the commandments:

In Exodus the Hebrew word שׁקר׃ / SiQuR H8267 is translated false

לא / no תענה /shalt thou bear ברעך / against thy neighbor. עד /witness שׁקר׃H8267 false

In Deuteronomy the Hebrew word is שׁוא׃ / SUA H7723 is translated false

ולא / Neither תענהH6030 shalt thou bear ברעך /against thy neighbor. עד / witness שׁוא׃H7723 false

While both words are acceptable translations to the word false in English, the reason the language varies is because we are meant to learn the compound or dual spirit of these letters, as YHWH had both words used it is so that those who are called by His Name may ask Him what it is we should not do, that we may please him by our lives and our society.

As in the discussion of any law, the construct of the wording is important as to it’s intent, an intent that Israel is intended to understand.

Biblical Context

The only verses in the Pentateuch Law where the Hebrew word שׁוא / SUA (H7723 ) translated in Deu_5:20 as ‘False’ is found is in the following verses beside: Exo_20:7; Deu_5:11 3rd Commandment,

As well we have context and case, to help in:

Exo_23:1 Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

Again the word SUA from Exodus 20:7, the 3rd Commandment is found translated ‘False’, while the context seems to be that of the 9th Commandment dealing with a the ‘false report’ of a ‘false witness’.

Venturing out side of the Pentateuch for context consider the substantiation of this word meaning ‘vain or empty’

Job 15:31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.

 

Psa 12:1-2 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

God’s Word in opposition to the context:

Psa 12:6 The words of YHWH are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

The form of false witness being referenced in Deuteronomy 5:20, as indicated by the word SUA is not identical to the form represented in Exodus 20:17, as indicated by the word SiQuR.

SUA refers to the type of falsehood which is vain, empty, mindless, ignorant, aimless: An example at law of this understanding is sited by Noah Webster as ‘ignoramus’: An ignorant person; a vain pretender to knowledge. , suitingly it could be described as ‘lying just to lie’, truly vain words.

While when dealing with the word found in Exodus: SiQuR and it’s related words refer to the same falsity of the witness, that is in it’s quality as being untrue, yet it indicates false intent, filled with falsehood for a reason, mindfully false, knowledgeably incorrect, aimed at injustice

Hebrew root SiQ is found a number of times in the Law, also dealing with these ‘ false matters ‘

Exo_23:7 Keep thee far from a false matter

(that is literally: ‘ Of words that are false (SiQuR) be far from’)

Of testifying falsely

Bearing  Falsity 

 

Deu_19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu 19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Above the word SiQuR is used both times for the word false, and as well the same word translated in the Commandment as ‘bear’, is here translated ‘testified’.

A good example of the context of both the 3rd and 9th commandment may be seen in

Lev_19:11 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie(SiQuR-H8266) one to another.

Lev_19:12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely,(SiQuR- H8267), neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

Lev 19:13 Thou shalt not defraud (O-SiQH6231) thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

This small but weighty substantiated arrangement of evidence from scripture shows the meaning of both aspects of the 9th Commandment and it’s use of the both the Hebrew word SUA referencing ‘Vain matters’ and that of SiQeR matters (pun intended), that is falsity with intent. Remember both aspects of this Commandment reference willful sin, that is to do so knowingly, even the falsehood which speaks to the idea of ignorance, the sinner bears a willfully: ignorant, vain, empty, careless, mindless ‘witness’ or ‘matter’, in ‘words’ : written or spoken. While the more sick idea to our morality is the idea of matters which we know to be false and perhaps have premeditated the effect of it’s witness, matters or words.

THE

CHRISTIAN WITNESS

Can Not Be

FALSE OR VAIN

In other words, when those who are Called by the LORD YHWH’s Name, those who claim the blood of the covenant to be written upon them, by the precious name of Jesu(s) Christ, that is as a Christian, when they speak to a matter is should neither be vain or false, the words which we speak as part of the common-wealth of Israel that is as joint heirs with Christ of His Kingdom, should be true words, pure words, words and witnesses and testimonies which have been tried and found to have substance: This would indicate particularly in matters of trial or judgment before a governing authority ordained by YHWH God, yet not limited to such, as the Commandment is not only focusing upon a witness in a court but in the witness of ones mouth, hand and actions as offered to ones neighbor or brother of the Common-Wealth of Israel, that is of his own Nation. There is not one persuasive shred of evidence that witness to the fact or to suggests that it is exceptionable practice of behavior under this 9th Common Law that would allow for fellow Citizen-brothers to practice general lying or vain speech one with the other; in other words the whole command is an admonition towards thoughtful and true dealings with in the common-wealth, brother to brother, neighbor to neighbor from general conversation unto judgment for sin. And as a people called by God’s Name, it behooves us to Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker… 2Ti_2:15-17 “

Not only when we study the scriptures to give an answer for our Faith, are we to shun the profane and vain babblings, we are to as well have our conversation honest among the Gentiles ( 1Pe_2:12), to be men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom (Act_6:3), Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men. (2Co_8:21) as our calling by His Name is to walk by Faith, thus every dealing we as members of the Common-Wealth of Israel and as joint heirs with Christ as Christians should convey our honest action which are dictated by our honest Faith, our truthful Faith which leads the brothers of Christ to be a thoughtfully considerate race begotten of the father, that is not a vain, ignorant, mindless, and empty witness of our faith, our hope with in us, by stupidly speaking unsubstantiated matters that we do not have understand on, or witnessing to a thing that by our ignorance on the matter will misrepresent the witness of our faith. As well, in the other form, the SiQR is to bear a falsehood in our witness, that is to turn our hearts to be he that worketh deceit, he that telleth lies, knowing that those who do such shall not dwell in the house of YHWH or tarry in his sight. as says Psa_101:7, to not meddle with falsehood as Pro_17:4 A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

It behooves us as those who earnestly desire not to take the Name of our GOD in vain to become the people of His calling who bear no false witness unto our neighbor.

Yet for the Godly we we are told:

Psa_119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

It is of necessity that those who are called by the Name of YHWH and those who call upon His Name be honest, truthful, wise men and women of an understanding heart and spirit, as far as our cognation allow us to be by our emotional and mental nature.

CHRIST ON AVOIDING EVIL

It is not until after the a fore mentioned aspect of the 3rd and 9th Commandment is brought into focus that it is even appropriate to discuss the subject of: Swearing, Oaths, Vowes, and Judgment, this is because honest and true men are in no need of swearing such an Oath as they in their honest conversation have no need of such, opperating upon the principles of

Num_30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

which is well substantiated by our Lord Christ in his teaching in

Mat_5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

As Christians we are pressed to have simple communication, and direct, for there is no place to swear in any way less than to swear by the name of YHWH when swearing is requiered.

Mat 5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

Mat 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

Mat 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

Mat 5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

The forgone mention of swearing not at all is specific to the idea of swearing ‘not at all’ by any other thing than upon the name of YHWH as the Law only establishes:

Deu_6:13 Thou shalt fear YHWH thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name

Once Christians are honest

they can start to consider

Judicial Proceedings

As the verses of the Pentateuch and the case examples are reflected upon from Exodus 23, Deuteronomy 19 and Leviticus 19, specific instances of law are seen to directly reference the swearing of brother to brother or neighbor to neighbor, the object of an Oath as taken in the Name of YHWH, the LORD, is evident, as well the swearing of an Oath is part of Judiciary proceedings under certain circumstances. The swearing of an Oath, is a very serious matter, as stated by our Christ, when swearing is required is is due to some form of evil. The swearing in a judicial proceeding is to invoke honesty beyond the standard, it is used as a converse measure to hold a Brother-Citizen to account for the truth or falsity of his testimony, so that the actual incrimination may come from the swearing falsely or lying under Oath, which today is called Perjury. In this instance the man who asserts to know a thing must swear as to His knowledge of the matter as will he who is to defend from the accusation, true or false. The Use of the swearing of an Oath is among the highest forms of Evidence one may produce in a Judiciary setting, as it is first hand witness coupled with the witness of God, by evoking His Name into the matter beyond a common standard it places a multiplied level of guilt upon the one who uses the Name vainly, the act calls ones soul into account beyond the duration of life; the only evidence which is higher is the like in opposition of 2 or 3 witnesses and / or factually substantiated Evidence introduced into the matter contrary to the single witness and his oath.

A Case Example:

Exo_22:7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man’s house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.

Exo 22:8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods.

Exo 22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

Exo 22:10 If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:

Exo_22:11 Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.

When either form of falsehood prior discussed, either vainly-ignorant or intentionally-premeditated, the matter must be delineated by a Judicious Elder wise and understanding, and known among the tribe, and in such a case the determined Judgment preordained is:

Deu_19:16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

Deu 19:17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

Deu 19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Deu_19:19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Restitution it is always the preferred Judgment to cause Brothers to be reconciled by restitution going forward, in the case of payment, for in the case of one who owes another, there is no damaged party more justified to have restitution than thy who have been wronged. In the event that one has in some form or another found an occasion to repent of a falsehood, the following is prescribed:

Lev_6:2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;

Lev 6:3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:

Lev 6:4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,

Lev_6:5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

In such a case we see the place of repaying 1/5th of that which was the principal beyond the matter, and beyond this YHWH required an unblemished Ram payed to the priest hood or perhaps it’s estimated value?

In an Ideal Christian society established in brotherhood and good faith this incident would be resolved civilly, and between the two men of what ever the matter was, by simply taking one and the other at His honest word and knowing that neither would defraud, steal or trespass against the other willfully, yet this is not the nature of Men.

Thus when such a controversy arises the decision is ultimate to determine the truth of the matter, and to determine if either Citizen of the Common-Wealth is acting in an un-brotherly way, and to restore such a one by restitution.

The citizen members of the Ecclesia should not be found unworthy to judge the smallest matters…things that pertain to this life?

As the Apostle admonishes: If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church/ecclasia. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 1Co_6:1-6

In such a case, Paul’s admonition is for brothers to appeal one to the other first and then to turn to a judge of the Ecclesia, providing the reprimand:

1Co 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?..But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.

1Co 6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

1Co 6:8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

This of course is the case when members of the Ecclesial are living under the principalities and powers of the darkness, and not under a righteous Common-Wealth, and that when the Judge which wields the power of punishment is unGodly.

 

A Single Swearing of Oaths or Vows

That is the Idea of one who swears to do a thing for another before Almighty God.

Multiple examples of men swearing one to the other to preform an action is regarded out side of the perjury prior discussed, and this due to the circumstances and place of who is involved, when for instance an oath is sworn between Abraham and Eliazar as to get a wife of Abraham’s kindred for Isaac to wed, or between Isaac and Amimelech a Oath of peace is made, and beyond the swearing of these Oaths, they show the invocation of God into a matter to establish it beyond the normal for Divine accountability, it as well is an invocation for YHWH’s help in the matter: this too may undoubtedly be the bearing of a false witness in the event of it’s willful disregard or thoughtlessness.

Swearing a Oath to God is a vow:

Also is the matter of a vow, which by biblical definition seems to only indicate an swearing of an Oath or promise to God Himself as to do a thing for Him or to Him, to this Solomon offers excelant advice:

Ecc 5:4 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.

Ecc 5:5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

Ecc 5:6 Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?

Ecc 5:7 For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.

It is a powerful thing to vow a vow to YHWH, as the scriptures evidently bear witness.

 

The Swearing of an Oath by YHWH

is

Called a Covenant

 

Deu_7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Deu 7:7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

Deu 7:8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Deu 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

Deu 7:10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.
