THE WORLD OF GOD AND MAN PART 5

January 2, 2011

——————————————————————–
John 5: 5 – 21
[5] And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

[6] When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?

[7] The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

[8] Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.

[9] And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

[10] The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

[11] He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.

[12] Then asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?

[13] And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.

[14] Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

[15] The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.

[16] And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

[17] But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

[18] Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

[19] Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

[20] For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

[21] For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
—————————————————————
Jesus came to fulfill the law, giving us two great commandments, which when truly believed, plants the law within our heart so that we live it naturally without even being conscious of it. (Mat. 22:36-40) One of the great sore points to God’s law, (which the lawyers and religionists of that day were under) is the ‘Sabbath,’ the seventh day of the week. This parable concerns the fellow who was healed on the Sabbath, and was told to take up his bed and carry it.

Of course the nit-picking lawyers of that day saw it, and brandished it in the face of Jesus. A lot like the law of the land of today, one can be incarcerated, and locked away for breaking one of the millions of hidden laws of the land, not even knowing what he had done. We have our share of these predators in this present day and age. Only this time they have nothing to do with God, and care even less about Him, they specialize in the zillions of laws of the land, and how to gain the unlimited treasures as a result. To them, salvation of the soul, is foolishness.

Of course Jesus had the appropriate come back, what the Father God does, the Son can also do. If the Father commands to carry a bed on the Sabbath, so also can the Son. God is the author of the law, He is able to use it in any manner He sees fit, the same as our earthly government, which can say, “do as I say, not as I do,” as they themselves are almost immune to those same laws with which they dabble in and which we as the
common rabble must at all costs obey.

This by the way, is one of the great sins of our day, the Sabbath, our land has transformed the Sabbath from the last day of the week to the first. Our complete society breaks this law on a global scale. Sunday, which in it’s very name, portrays what day it is, the day of sun worship, which back in the early civilizations was practiced. Our world has adopted it to replace the true Sabbath.

I do not exclude myself from this. In my very early stages of being a Christian, I was well aware of this, and tried to impress others about it, and of course was given the cold shoulder of indifference. After some time, I dropped the issue, no longer trying to sway with my unimpressive manner the sin being committed here.

In fact, I am actually guilty of this sin myself, I am not able to criticize others for the same sin I commit, that would make me the same as the priests of Jesus’ day, a hypocrite. It would put me on the same level as our government, do as I say, not as I do.

John 6
[26] Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

[27] Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.
———————————————————————-
We are instructed not to labor for the food which we consume, but for the food that feeds the soul, the spirit of God. Yet, we as human must try and survive, therefore we have no choice but to put forth the labors required in order to do that, and these days it is growing far more difficult to satisfy that need. That is, for those all about me.

However, personally, God saw the future, and protected, and provided for me up through all the years of my life, so that when these times came, I would be provided for, therefore personally, there is very little if any suffering along these lines for the wife and I. I have yet to see the reason He has done this, when I look back across the years of my life, I see very little if any value I am to God.

Why has He done this for me? I suppose I should not look a gift horse in the mouth, just accept and be thankful. I just want to here and now acknowledge where all this has come from, not from my meager intelligence, but from the very hand of God. He has provided an adequate system for my retirement in my older years, which at the present I am able to enjoy. It is not highly impressive, but plenty adequate for my humble existence.

John 6: 32 – 40
[32] Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.

[33] For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

[34] Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

[35] And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

[36] But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.

[37] All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

[38] For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

[39] And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

[40] And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
—————————————————————
Bread is the very staff of life, it is the cement which holds the body of flesh together. Also, it is the very thing the wife does not like, and as a result is suffering greatly in her body. That being an example of what happens when the Bread of Life, which is Jesus, is not eaten, the Spiritual body suffers greatly, just as the wife’s physical body suffers so terribly. One must have both in order to become healthy. Yet, as with the wife with physical bread, many there are who suffer spiritually due to forsaking the Bread of Life, and they are crippled spiritually, and are not even aware of it.

Bread however is one of my human weaknesses, I love good fresh bread, I can eat and enjoy it by itself with nothing on it, and I do that very thing far too often, an ice cold glass of milk goes great with it.. I have tried with out success at making bread, my many attempts have always ended in miserable failure.

I am able to remember the bread my mother use to bake many years ago when I was a small child. It smelled so good while baking, and tasted even better when eating it. Yet, we were very poor, and there was very little for my father, mother sisters and brothers, so I never had enough, as a small child I could not understand why, and begged my mother for more.

I am sure it tore her heart in having to refuse me time after time. If only I could go back and try and comfort my mother, what a wonderful, kind, gentle and wonderful person she was. When God made mothers, He used pure unadulterated love as the material.

That bread of Life, which is Jesus, I feel is bread which if possible, is even better than the bread my mother baked so many years ago. If, and I am sure it is, it must be a pleasure beyond description. We must have it in order to inherit everlasting life. Bread sustains life both physically and spiritually.

It is unfortunate that there are those like my wife, who do not like physical bread, and those who do not like spiritual bread. Both types suffer the consequences from their discrepancies. I have found that both are immune to advice on their failures. The wife will not listen, or abide by the warnings, by me, nor will others about the spiritual bread.
———————————————————-
John 6: 44 – 64
[44] No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
————————————————————-
I have found there is a lot more to this piece of scripture (John 6:44), than meets the eye. I can remember back to that time before I was curious about the ways of God, how I felt. I wanted nothing to do with it, and should any try to persuade me to change, I would turn them off as politely as I could, because I was simply not interested.

In fact they actually irritated me. It was the same in church prior to my change. To listen to the preacher was a total waste of time. In fact I still feel that way, but it is under far different circumstances. What I am saying is, up until that moment when I suddenly became ‘Curious,’ about the Word, it was total foolishness to me. I had to want, I had to desire knowledge, before my mind would open to where I was able to accept it.

In a word, it is a waste of breath, and temperament to try and voice your point of view pertaining to God, unless the one you are facing has a desire for it. When God wants that person He will place a desire in that person’s heart, and then he, the person, will possibly accept what you are trying to convey to him, until then, forget it, you are blowing hot air for no reason.
————————————————————
[47] Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

[48] I am that bread of life.

[49] Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

[50] This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

[51] I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

[52] The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

[53] Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

[54] Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

[55] For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

[56] He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

[57] As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

[58] This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
————————————————————–
It would appear to me, that Jesus spoke this parable (John 6:47-58) in such a manner as to purposely confuse those listening, intentionally implying the wrong meaning. It would be natural for the person who is not spiritual to assume that Jesus would be relating everlasting life to cannibalism, the literal eating of his body. This repulsive feeling is just what Jesus wanted to secretly relay to those crowding about Him, a feeling of repugnance and disgust. In short, psychological in order to gain the desired results. You must understand that Jesus had to be the best psychologist in all of creation, and did not hesitate to use this tactic when needed to accomplish a desired effect.

What Jesus stated in the verses 51 through 56 is indeed repulsive to even read, even by one who understands what is actually meant. He always spoke in a manner that was not clear and open. I believe that doctors, lawyers and politicians have studied under him very intensively, their communications are the closest to the manner of Jesus, I have ever encountered.

It is an obvious fact that Jesus had no desire to save the whole of humanity, or He would have spoken in plain understandable ways, so that all would understand. He always spoke to the general public in parables, and doing this, the very simple minded would naturally not understand the real meaning of the clouded example given to them. Again refer to my article covering this:

WHY JJESUS SPOKE ONLY IN PARABLES

To speak in a code, is to conceal the true meaning, except to those for which it was meant. I was a radio operator in my earlier years, flying missions all over the world. We had a device that I had to check out by signature, which was held under tight security, and it was my responsibility to install it into the proper position prior to our flights.

Each time we landed, whether for just a couple of hours, or over a period of several days, I was responsible for removing this instrument, and checking it into a very secure location. When our flight was ready for take off, I had to again retrieve the instrument, and re install it in the aircraft. What was this instrument? It was LRAN, long range radar and navigation, it periodically sent out a secret code to the ground, which would identify our aircraft, position, and flight plan, without that code, we would have been escorted to land by fighter jets.

Therefore, I know code, regardless of how it is worded when I see it. Our communications were initially by code, a series of dots and dashes sent by a hand key. Not only that, but we had secretive materials which were themselves code. When audible voice was used, it was shrouded by code symbols which covered over the real meanings.
Jesus spoke by using coded symbols as well, which were buried in parables. Only those for whom it was meant, would be able to understand.

There are some very unfavorable people in this world, who have a technology, where they are able to program certain codes into a person’s mind, a code that will not be activated until a certain key phrase is spoken where they can hear it. When this happens, they are programmed to perform a certain task.

What is so weird is, they do not even know this has happened to them, and while they are in the actual act of doing what they were preprogrammed to do, they are not even aware of what they are doing. These are what are known as ‘Sleepers,’ by the underworld, and I feel our government as well. They are usually programmed as assassinators, to kill a certain person, or group of people.

This preprogramming of the minds of those God has chosen was preformed far before creation, this is what is termed as pre-destination. Our minds have been pre- wired to respond to a certain event, word, dream, vision, or spoken phrase, to want God. It will not activate of its own initiative, it must have this activator to trigger the mind in such a way so that it will respond to God’s Word, and have a built in desire to be a part of God.

What technology, able to do this to our minds, far before we, our ancestors, or their ancestors, even before the world came into existence. There are powers in the air that we, as humans could not even imagine. Instrumentation is not needed, pure power forces relay instruction, not hindered by machinations, time, space, distance, or any such thing.

We are ‘Sleepers,’ programmed to react at the precise moment when it, the right signal, arrives, to God and His Spirit. Until then, we are just simple ordinary humans. When we as humans have this same technology, why is it any mystery to think that God also has it, only on a much higher level of sophistication?

——————————————————————–
[62] What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

[63] It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

[64] But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
———————————————————————–
Again, another hint about being pre-programmed, in verse 64, it states that Jesus knew from the ‘Beginning,’ who would not believe him, or come to him, or would betray him. The ‘Beginning,’ is that time of the foundation of the world, when the books were formed, holding the names of those who would be in the Kingdom. (Ecc.1: 9 – 10).

To the elect who hear these parables, Jesus in private explains the meaning of what He spoke as parables before the general public. To whom He wants to understand He communicates in private. It is the Spirit, which is the flesh to be eaten, not the literal flesh and blood, this meaning was not explained to those He had made these remarks to.

This very same tactic was used by God in the Garden when Adam and Eve came face to face with him. He stated that should they eat of the forbidden fruit that they would surely die, but He, God did not elaborate and explain that He really meant that they would die a spiritual death, and that the physical death of the body would not occur. (Gen. 2:16-17)

Then of course this left the field wide open for Satan (in the Garden) to try and make God out a liar. He cleared the air by saying they would not surely die, but like God, he did not elaborate about the spiritual death. Both God and Satan were right, but only half so, one meant Spiritual death, God, the other meant Physical death, Satan. (Gen. 3:3-5)

What took place at the Garden was exactly what God intended, due to him using this type of psychology. What both Jesus and God His Father did was to relay a half truth. This is similar to people who use the scriptures to prove a point by taking them out of context.
In verses 51 through 63 He told them in plain language, to literally eat of His flesh and drink of his blood. Yet, in reality, that was not what he meant. What does this make this, a lie, or just a half-truth?

This was of course not what He really meant for them to do, He was speaking in a literal sense, yet at the same time His meaning was that of the spiritual. He was using a type of reverse psychology. Not telling the exact truth, but again not telling an outright lie. In other words a Half Truth. All in order to gain the result desired.

What this caused was just exactly what He wanted to happen the same thing as what took place at the Garden, or He would not have coded his words in such a manner, He would have spoke to them in clear understandable phrases.
—————————————————————
John 8
[51] Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
———————————————————————-
Now here is one of those questionable sayings of Jesus. I know a lot of good people who have lead pure Christian lives, upholding all the principals, all the laws of love, meeting all of the qualifications laid down by Jesus, and they are at the present, part of the earth.

I really hate to say it, but both God and Satan have a lot in common, they both use the same type of psychology. Both seem great with half-truths, and half – lies.

His eleven disciples, those who were with him here on earth, who sacrificed all they had, in order to help Jesus with His teachings concerning the Kingdom of God, who then gave their lives for their faith, they are resting in the earth as well. How did all these with such shining records wind up becoming a part of the earth, of course, they had to die, as we shall do also.

Yet, Jesus made a very plain statement here, ‘If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death,’ and that is as far as he went with it, no further explanations. This would give the impression, as in the Garden, that if we uphold all ten commandments of God, and love our neighbor as our self, that we would not die, but we do die, and will die. A half truth, is almost the same as a half lie. Of course we are able to interpret this to mean, eternal life, which comes after the death of the physical body. There is no death in eternal life, that I am aware of.

This was the very same tactic used on Adam and Eve when God told them they would die if they eat of the forbidden fruit. This subject, I explained in the article covering them in the Garden. To me, a half truth almost constitutes a non truth. Satan of course explained to the couple the other half of the truth, but ignored the first part, which was another half-truth, which constituted a half truth, or a half-lie. Woweee!! I am just about to become confused at my own statements, did I or did I not say it before?

A WOMAN COMES INTO A MAN’S LIFE – HELL HAPPENS

That would be on the same level as telling a person that should they fall ten thousand feet from an aircraft without the benefit of a parachute, that they would not die. But fail to explain that what you really meant was, that the person would not die spiritually if he had given His life to Jesus. If I am not able to learn the whole truth, then learning just half of the truth is not what I want.

That is being done in the churches of this day, they are preaching and teaching a half truth. That there will be a rapture and that the saints will not have to suffer death, or tribulation. A half truth is being preached, yes, there will be a ‘Catching away,’ (Rapture) when Jesus returns to earth, and again at the end of the age just prior to the Great White Throne Judgment.

What is preached and taught, is just the shiny side of the coin, not the rusted, and tarnished opposite side, which is tribulation and death. What the churches are doing is exactly what God did in the Garden, and Jesus stated to His disciples just before His crucifixion.
——————————————————————–
John 10: 1 – 18
[1] Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

[2] But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

[3] To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
————————————————————————
The code words given, in order to awaken the ‘Sleepers, described above,’ when he ‘calls,’ that is the code which causes the Christian to wake from his sleep, and follow Jesus. Only those whose names are in the book from the foundation of the world are called. (Eph. 1:4 — Rev. 17:8)
————————————————————-
[4] And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
—————————————————————–
The code words to the Christian sleepers, whose names were in the book of Life prior to the foundation of the world.
——————————————————————-
[5] And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

[6] This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.

[7] Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

[8] All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

[9] I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

[10] The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

[11] I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

[12] But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

[13] The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

[14] I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

[15] As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

[16] And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
——————————————————————-

What is said in John 10:1 leaves me to believe that there are other ways of reaching the echelon of the elect, other than by Jesus, however using that method is termed as a thief and robber, which will not enter the Kingdom of God. As stated several times before, there are a multitude of religions which cover the earth, that teach other than
Jesus. According to this scripture, they are void and null, of no effect.

There is only one way, and that is by the way of Jesus, the Son of God.
Jesus is our mediator between us and God, there are no other mediators as the Catholics teach. Theirs is a false doctrine, one which does not accept Jesus for what He is. Theirs is filled with extreme in traditions and ritual. Theirs is also the religion that was responsible for the persecution of many true Christians.
——————————————————————-
[17] Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

[18] No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father
——————————————————————
The future of mankind, which is God, has developed the ability to time travel forward and backward in time, and also to die from the human body, and to live again in the human body. Jesus is the picture of what we as humans shall be in the distant future. That is if we qualify, if we are among the ‘sleepers,’ which have been called from before the world was formed. Actually, from all the indicators of this age, it may not be all that far off.

One must make the ultimate sacrifice, the leaving of this body of misery, in order to obtain the body of purity, that which never dies, and is everlasting. Jesus had the power to lay down His life, no human is able to just lay down and die without some cause which actually kills the body itself. Jesus left his human body, prior to the spear entering his side, and reentered it again while in the tomb. Then, when he re-entered the body, it was capable of walking through the stone that blocked the entrance.

Jesus had the powers of God, and knew it, not by faith, but by memory of being a part of the Godhead, this we as total one hundred percent humans do not have, at this present date. He knew He had the power to die, and relive again, whereas we do not have that knowledge, other than by one hundred percent faith.
—————————————————————
John 10: 25 – 30
[25] Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.

[26] But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.

[27] My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

[28] And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

[29] My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

[30] I and my Father are one
—————————————————————
Jesus Himself admits that He and the Father are one and the same, therefore the one who was crucified on the cross, murdered by the very hand of those whom He created, was the same as God the Father Himself. Which is the reason He could speak with such authority concerning all things.

God formed a mediator by sending Himself as His only Son to be persecuted and murdered by man, a mediator that we can go to between ourselves and God the Father, somebody who is able to speak in our behalf, and our troubles. He is our defense attorney when Satan comes at us with his barbs. Presenting our case to God so that we can be understood by the Creator Himself. Remember the movie ‘The Devil’s advocate?’ Jesus is ‘God’ advocate.’

He now knows what the pain of death is like, and the power of the grave. He has now suffered the same things that mankind has suffered. There is now nothing that our human body, or humanity has suffered, that He has not suffered as well. Though we as humans have never had one of our kind to return from the grave, we can accept the teachings of Jesus as authority on the matter of death, the grave, and life afterwards. It is gold in the bank, food for the spirit, power on which to build strong faith, and hope for a far superior existence than the one we now have. Thank you God for Jesus our Savior.
————————————————————-
John 11: 11 – 26
[17] Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

[23] Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

[24] Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

[25] Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

[26] And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
——————————————————————-
Jesus is clearing up the matter concerning death. When we believe in Jesus, and take Him at His terms, then we are truly alive, and when the body ceases to function, and goes to the grave, our true being is not dead. Again I am able to change my view, my outlook, as often as I feel the need to, that is the privilege of being a loner, and not tied to any stone hard creeds or traditions, that is, with the exception of those carved in stone by God, and carried to the people by Moses.

My ideas of death are now changed, I have always assumed that when our eyes are closed in death, that we enter a very peaceful sleep, which incidentally has been referred to several times in these very scriptures. If our inner self, the true inner spirit which abides within our heart does not die when the body does, then where does it exist until the resurrection of our human bodies?

To answer that question, I think I have read some place within the scriptures, that the Spirit returns to God. The data which our life time has experienced is sent to the databank of God’s master computer, to be recalled at the proper time. In a word, we are just a bunch of digits in a databank until God depresses the key to retrieve us, then our complete being comes back just as it was prior to death.

Just like sleep I assume that resting in a databank as a bunch of digits, that there is no actual awareness as such. Which is fine with me, it would then be as a peaceful sleep, back where we started, aren’t we. One instant we close our eyes in death, the next instant we open them in the resurrection, with no awareness of a time lapse in between, could be one second, or ten thousand years, we would not be aware of it.
—————————————————————
John 11: 39 – 44
[39] Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

[40] Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

[41] Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

[42] And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

[43] And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

[44] And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
——————————————————————
A lot of knowledge here if studied with care. Jesus could have called forth the dead without saying a word by mouth, but for the people to hear, He spoke the words aloud so that Lazarus would be certain to hear, and the people gathered there would hear. He could have easily accomplished the same thing with just the powers of His mind, without uttering the first word by mouth.

Secondly, Lazarus was brought back to life in this life, to continue living as before. He was not given a spiritual body at this time. I just imagine that Lazarus was alive before Jesus even spoke the words aloud, they were spoken only for the benefit of the those gathered there.

As has been stated before, there are no further recordings about Lazarus, and what he experienced the four days that he lay dead. Nothing more about him, just as if he never existed. If he had any experiences during the time of death, one would think they would have been carefully noted and recorded. Nothing more about him at all, so I suppose he had nothing to say about his time of rest. There are no memories in sleep when there are no dreams.

John 12: 23 – 26
[23] And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.

[24] Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

[25] He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

[26] If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
————————————————————-
We must follow Jesus in death, the same as in life. We must die and live again. Of course this can not be done literally, so we do it symbolically, with the baptism by water, we go below the water in death, and arise in life. We are then baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Water is symbolized as the earth.

One must be born again, and this is also with the procedure of baptism. Our body dies, but the Spirit lives, our bodies then become the temple of God. We must never desecrate these bodies we wear, they are the holy temple of God and shall be until they are at last placed under the earth. Then the Spirit returns to God, to be stored away till time is ripe. That is the reason I am strongly against the ’tattooing,’ or wearing body jewelry, where the body is punctured, pierced, or mutilated in any manner. To me, that is desecrating the temple of God.

John 12: 44 – 50
[44] Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.

[45] And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

[46] I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

[47] And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
——————————————————————–
Jesus admits, only those whom He personally has called, the code words to we the ‘Sleepers,’ will He have with him when he returns. All others will remain in their resting places till the end of time, the end of the Kingdom, the Great White Throne judgment by God the Father.
—————————————————————

[48] He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

[49] For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

[50] And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
————————————————————–
Jesus states that He came not to judge the world, but to save the world. How many times have I stated that it is not God’s will that the whole world is to be saved? Yet, that was the mission of Jesus, to come to save the world. That was His mission, but He knew deep within himself that the whole world of lost souls could not be saved. He came to save those which were given to Him, and that was to Him the whole world. He stated that if any do not believe Him, then He will not judge that man, that will be left to the Great White Throne judgment. The Word which Jesus spoke will do the judging of all on the last day.

John 13: [36] Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

John 14: 1 – 4
[1] Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

[2] In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

[3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

[4] And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
——————————————————————-
Peter was curious, Jesus was to die, and Peter asked Him where He was going, and Jesus stated that where He was going, that Peter could not follow at this moment, however He could follow Him later when the time has come. Jesus had to go in order to prepare a place, (a new world and heavens) for the later resurrection of many souls. Just as God created the Earth in seven Godly days, (seven thousand years,) likewise this is what Jesus at the moment is doing. We can not populate this new creation till it is finished, and ready for our habitation. I compare this to we the elect of Jesus, being the new Adam in the new Garden of Eden.

John 17: 1 – 3
[1] These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

[2] As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

[3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
—————————————————————
Jesus gave up his life willingly, men did not take his life, He was gone before they pierced His side. He was dead when He was hanging on the Cross, that is, His earthly body was dead, but not the real being of Jesus, He did not feel the actual pain in His body at the point of death. He termed his death as being ‘Glorified,’ not as the end of life.

I have formulated ideas in my mind as to what death will be like for me, I know not what it will be like for others, but for me personally, I picture it as two things, first that of falling into a deep sleep, and secondly, as being reborn into a new existence. Not simultaneously possibly, but first the deep sleep, and then the awakening into a new and wonderful existence. This life is the womb, and death is the birth.

As the days, the weeks, and the years pass with their constant trials and tribulations, I am getting more and more excited, and exhilarated at the very thought of at last leaving it all behind and starting all over again in a new and exciting life. My pain threshold is very low, so I actually dread the pain which will be the cause of the death of this body, but it will be like childbirth, great pain prior to the beauty of birth, well worth it. I may sleep in death for a few moments, or for ten thousand years, either way I do not care, or will even be aware of.

John 20: 14 – 17
[14] And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.

[15] Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.

[16] Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

[17] Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
———————————————————————
This thing of ‘Ascending’ to the Father must be a thing which covers a period of time. I always thought it was an instantaneous thing. Yet, here Jesus warned those about Him not to touch Him. What was presented to the world at this point, was Jesus, the human which men had murdered, He was not yet spiritual, just as was Lazarus, and the young girl. This would not come about till He ascended before their eyes up into the heavens.

Yet there is the question, what would have been the harm in simply touching him, if He was indeed, just a normal human? Possibly to change from the human of flesh and blood, as one stands on the earth in a normal circumstance, to that of the spiritual does actually take some time, and would be dangerous to any who should happen to interfere with the procedure. .

Of course, I must admit none of us while living, know what it is actually like concerning death. That can only be learned by experiencing it. Of course once it is experienced, we are unable to return and explain the adventure. It could possibly be totally different from any of our speculations, and in all probability, is. However, better to be safe than sorry, so we must take the spiritual knowledge as basic truth of the matter.

Acts 1: 1 – 3
[1] The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

[2] Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

[3] To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
——————————————————————–
A time period is mentioned in verse 3, the time that Jesus spent on earth, after the death of his earthly body, and the re-entering of it. A period of forty days. This coincides perfectly with the period of time that the rains fell on the earth prior to the great flood, and of Noah and his Arc.. Something to think and speculate on.

No doubt while Jesus walked the earth, both before, and after his death, He did many things and said much more that is not recorded. It sure would have been interesting, to say the least, to have had a recording of all He actually said and did during that time.

To see the future human, what we shall be like in the distant land of the future, the future human, God. We become God at that time. The significance of this can not be over emphasized.

To have had God walking among flesh and blood, there is absolutely no way of imagining what took place. What we have are just a few brief recordings by His disciples, which have been edited, and re-edited many times before being put down in a manner which we are able to be exposed to. No doubt, many of those recordings were destroyed.

If only one of this day and age could have walked at his side during that time, recording all that He said, and all that He performed. It would have had to have been done during that period of time, if He should walk the earth today, He would be before a judge within a very short time, and executed immediately, the world of today is unable to accept the pure truth, it is too contaminated by Satan. He would not be given the chance to tell the world His mission on earth. Our Satanist politically correct society would murder Him almost instantly. Our world of today hates Jesus with a hate that is not describable.
—————————————————————–
Acts 2: [34] For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
—————————————————————
Acts 2 verse 34 clearly states that David is not ascended into the heavens. If David is still here, then where did Moses and Elias come from when they were talking to Jesus on the mountain (Luke 9:28-36)? This falls in line with Lazarus, they were brought back, but not to the spiritual realm.

I feel that what they, Peter, James and John saw, was an apparition, something which appeared to be real, but wasn’t, similar to what we view on television. The technology of the distant future can not even be compared to what we have today. We can be compared in the age to the future, as to what the horse and buggy days are to us. We are horse and buggy days to that future which we face.

David however, is still in the earth and not ascended at all, none of these were ascended as was Jesus. None of those whom were brought back to life by Jesus, are in heaven, they had to re-die, and be placed back in their graves. When I am brought back I do not want to come back and relive any of this life, I want to leave it behind forever. Of course I will be brought back for judgment, but will not continue living in this body of flesh, at that time, I will be given the body which I am best suited for, one which I am to finish out eternity in.

Acts 4: 11 – 12
[11] This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

[12] Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
—————————————————————
Any religion, and there are probably thousands, that teaches heaven by any other means than by Jesus, God the Father, and the Holy Ghost, is false, and of no avail. Just within the Christian faiths, there are many splinter groups, each teaching differently. Just as there are many different bibles, there are many different religions. A good article concerning this very thing:

AMERICA’S WAR WITH ISLAM By Michael LeMieux

Mankind is basically spiritual, and must have something to focus this spirituality on. Yet, they are all totally useless due to the fact they do not have Jesus as the focus point of salvation. They each one believe the same, that theirs is the true faith, and all others are false. This being the very reason for many wars, which have caused many to die.

This has been my philosophy for many years, no man of any faith, and that includes mine as well, is able to prove that his faith is the true faith. This is due to the very glaring fact, that no man, that is no man that is totally one hundred percent human, not part God and part human, but is human from birth till death, has come back from the world of the dead, and the other side of death to relate what he has encountered in his journey through death, and the other side of death.

Till that happens, and I feel it never will, there is no solid proof of any man’s faith. When Jesus performed his paranormal feats, of healing, of turning water into wine, of raising the dead, that was done by one who was part God, part human, not one that was totally human, as we are.

Jesus was able to die on the cross before being stabbed by a spear, he was able to die, come back to life, and later ascend to heaven. He was able to do things that is impossible for the human of today, to do, because He was God, and was in constant contact with God the Father, in order to have the powers needed at the time needed.

We as humans are able to raise our bibles and proclaim Jesus, the Father God, and the Holy Ghost as our ladder to salvation, and be deathly sincere about it. However the other faiths have followers who are able to do the very same thing, claiming a god of the past which was not Jesus, or God the Father, or the Holy Ghost, and their God leads them to heaven, a heaven of many different things.

In fact they claim that our faith of Jesus was taken from their faith, we just borrowed it to form our line of reasoning. This is why it is foolish to argue over religion, till one or the other is able to prove without a doubt theirs is right, nothing is gained in debating it at all. Only time will tell who is, or who is not right.
