Why do we need a lesson like this?
Jesus gave his disciples a private briefing.
Matthew 24:1-5, 11
Many shall come in the name of Christ and deceive many, the deception will come from the pulpit.
2 Peter 2:1-3
False prophets, false teachers speak contrary to the word of God, heresies, mans opinion, giving their interpretation. Make money out of you. Truth Evil Spoken of
What is the truth?
SANCTIFY/set apart them by truth Thy word is truth-How do we identify false teachers and prophets
Elymas was a false prophet who tried to turn people from the right way, His name Bar-Jesus means son of Jesus
How do we identify the right way from the false way?
2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto GOD
Does that mean we just study any book?
Seek ye out of the book of the Lord
The Priest and Prophet erred and are totally drunk, tables are full of vomit
The vomit and filthiness is bad doctrine, how do we know this?
Put your marker here as we coming back
If you are drunk and staggering but not with wine then we are drunk with bad doctrine and there is hope for someone drunk with alcohol for it wears off but a spiritual drunk.
So a question is raised, who shall he teach knowledge?
A precept is a rule intended to regulate behavior and thought.
1 John 4:1
Test the spirit/word which
They searched out the scriptures to see if it added up and not just sat there drinking in whatever the pastor tells them.
The Apostle Paul warned us, let’s see what about.
2 Corinthians 11:3-4
Those who would come preaching another Jesus, another spirit and another gospel but how would this happen?
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
What are they?
False apostles, deceitful workers, Satan is their master and he has ministers who like him transforms themselves as ministers of righteousness.
So who is this another Jesus compared to the one in the bible?
They say Jesus died on Good Friday and rose Easter Sunday morning so let us investigate
Jesus said no sign would be given except that of Jonah as Jonah was in the belly of the whale 3 days and 3 nights so the son of man would be in the heart of the earth/ grave 3 days and 3 nights. Friday day night = 1 night, Saturday 1 day and Saturday 1 night
If he wasn’t in the grave 3 days and 3 nights then he is not the Christ of the bible. John 20:1
Daniel fasted and prayed for understanding and it was given concerning his people Artaxerxes the Persian King moved by God for the temple in Jerusalem to be rebuilt Ezra 7 after 62 weeks the messiah would be cut off because he came to die for the sins of mankind. The people of the prince that destroys is the Romans. And He (Jesus) shall CONFIRM the covenant with many for one week, this one week is both spiritual and literal, spiritually it represents 7 years and we know this because Jesus preached for 3 and a half years. Literally Jesus died in the middle of the week, the day we call Wednesday and is the only thing that fits. Wednesday night, Thursday night, Friday night / Thursday day, Friday day, Saturday day = 3 days and 3 nights.
How the error was made by the translators of the bible because they didn’t read the old testament.
They thought because it was a Sabbath day, Jesus was crucified on Friday but this was A HIGH SABBATH DAY, let’s check this out.
Leviticus 23:6, 24, 37-38
In addition to the regular Sabbath there are 7 annual Sabbath or High Days and we will see this later on.
The Sabbath Day
Before man was created God sanctified this day and called it holy and later made it one of the Ten Commandments.
Did Jesus change the regular Sabbath day?
As was his CUSTOM/ a custom is a traditional and widely accepted way or behavior or doing something that is specific to a particular society, place or time. Jesu stood up to READ ….He didn’t change the Sabbath day it, so let’s see if the apostle Paul did.
Paul taught EVERY Sabbath day so let’s look at an incident that happened and show this wasn’t just for the Jews.
Acts 13:14, 27, 42, 44
Paul could have told the Gentiles I will teach the Jews on the Sabbath day and teach you Gentiles on Sunday but no they had to wait until the next Sabbath day why?
It was commanded by God himself.
Holy convocation means Holy gathering.
What day is Jesus Lord of?
He is Lord of the Sabbath
This is probably the biggest hope of the professing Christian Church that they are going to be snatched away to heaven.
First and foremost the word rapture is not in the bible!
I will COME AGAIN to receive you unto myself
From the mouth of Jesus himself but some will say that’s for unbelievers, lets hear again Jesus this time talking to his disciples
Plain and simple, let’s hear the prayer of Jesus for his disciples
John 17:1, 14-15
I pray not that though takest them out of the world, there is reference to us being caught up to meet the Lord in the air but this is at the 1st Ressurection so let’s look at it.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
V 13 Don’t want you to be without knowledge:v 15 those alive are not going see the Lord before those who have died:v 16 The Lord SHALL DESCEND, the dead in Christ shall rise first so they are in their graves until
the coming of the Lord.
So does this mean we are going into heaven forever?
Zechariah 14:1-4, Marker then come back to v 5
The day of the Lord is the day he returns to take down this wicked world governments by force. Vs 4 HIS FEET SHALL STAND IN THAT DAY ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES put your marker here we coming back
Jesus gives the disciples a briefing before ascending into heaven but where were they? v 12 On the Mount of Olives, this same JESUS SHALL RETURN IN LIKE MANNER, back to Zechariah 14:5 ALL THE SAINTS WITH HIM, from where does he get these saints, we just read it in 1 Thessalonians 4
Where did man come from heaven or the earth?
Man formed from the dust and the breath of life was breathed into him and he became a living soul-the man is a soul not have a soul in him
What is sin? Is it smoking and drinking?
1 John 3:4
Sin is breaking God’s commandments.
What happened when man sinned?
Dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return
We are told at every funeral that the dead person is in heaven looking down at us smiling and have made their homecoming. Ah say some that was before Christ resurrection when he took all the saints to heaven, let’s see
Acts 2:29, 34
David is dead and buried, He has not ascended to heaven so he is in his grave.
Let’s look at the Feasts of the Lord
Leviticus 23:1-2, 4-6, 16, 21, 24, 27, 34, 36
Feasts of the Lord, not Jewish feast-Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles and the 8th Day
No 25th December, No Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Lent, Easter etc…God has set out His holy days, man has set out his holi days.
What is the church, where and when did the church start, was it at Pentecost?
Stephens Sermon from Moses to Christ
Israel is the church and have the answers so if you want the truth you have to find an informed Israelite as the uniformed ones preach another Jesus
WE HAVE BEEN TOLD WE DON’T NEED TO KEEP THEM AS CHRIST NAILED THEM TO THE CROSS
God makes a covenant with Israel his Priest Nation
Let us see what Jesus had to say about that
He has not come to destroy the law or the prophets but to fulfil
Whosoever shall break one of these least commandments and teach men so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven but whoever teaches and does them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
A man came and asked Jesus a direct question, let’s pursue it.
What must I do to get eternal life?
Answer = keep the commandments
Let John speak
1 John 2:3-4
He that saith I know him and keepeth not his commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him.
Let’s go to Hebrews to clear up the simple confusion
Hebrews 10:1-10, 26-28
The law of animal sacrifices established by God under the Levitical Priesthood is the law we are no longer under as the blood of bulls and goats couldn’t take away sin. Jesus had a body prepared for him so he could die to pay the debt to get man from under the death sentence caused by our first parents. Jesus removed this law and replaced it with himself. Note the warning!!!! If after knowing this we continue to break the Royal law or 10 Commandments, the fiery indignation is the lake of fire.
Mystery Babylon the Mother of Harlots
This Mother is the Roman Catholic Church who has children who came out of the reformation movement.
It is evident that godly people have been caught up in her and so God issues a warning!
Come out of her my people!
But in VAIN/for NOTHING they worship me because of all that bad doctrine
We can go to church all the days of our lives thinking we are saved and are serving God and it is all for nothing, let’s hear it from the Lord Jesus himself.
Not everyone that says to me Lord, Lord shall enter the kingdom of heaven, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name cast out devils and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Does this sound like street people or church people?
What will be the Lord’s answer?
I never knew you, depart from me
Let’s hear the conclusion of the matter
The conclusion of the matter is to fear God and keep his commandments.
