eing led by the Holy Spirit, as a Christian Prophet ordained by God and by man through World Christianship Ministries, I wanted to re-examine a lot of terminology that is mistaught in modern Christian churches, throughout America and the World. Much of this terminology paints a very distorted view of whom God really is, as a separtistic, segregated God which is mutually exclusive to only a few and not the God who loves everyone and includes ALL of humanity in His plan for salvation. Segregated teachings in Christian churches have set a poor foundation for the faith and has lead many astray. When things stop working in modern day times this calls for a re-evaluation of current teachings in the Christian church. This study guide looks at words and their meanings as man states and what is actually stated in Hebrew and Greek. It is my goal to help clarify how we view the true living God we serve and to stimulate humanity to look deeply at what messages we are being spiritually fed and swallowing and then what it will produce. It is my desire to share this study guide for anyone Christian and non-Christian, for ALL of those who have ears to hear, mind to perceive and a heart to understand. In short summary this is a look at Universal salvation for ALL. Geraldine A. Pebdani firstname.lastname@example.org Jan 1st, 2010
Chapter One Where is the Kingdom of God? WHERE IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD? LUKE 17: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, Lo there! for behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.
GOD HAS A DESIGNED PLAN FOR THOSE TO RECEIVE THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM AS IT IS REVEALED? MAT. 13: 11 Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. MARK 4: 11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: LUKE 8: 10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables, that seeing they might not see and hearing they might not understand.
KINGDOM MYSTERY UNLOCKED-THE PARABLE OF THE SOWER MAT. 13: 3 TO 8 & MAT. 13: 19 TO 23, MARK 4:11 TO 20,

EXAMPLE: JOHN 3: 1 TO 13.NICODEMUS IN THE GARDEN WITH JESUS. LATER IN JOHN 7: 50, 51 HIS FAITH GREW AND HE WAS ABLE TO QUIET A DIVIDED GROUP THAT WANTED TO CAPTURE AND KILL JESUS. JOHN 19: 39, 40 HE HELPED IN JESUS BURIAL BY SUPPLYING THE MYRHH AND OILS FOR HIS BODY. NOTE: it is in the example of Nicodemus that John is the only disciple that wrote about him. Being a Pharisee and hearing the word of God, he did not understand it and as he pressed in to understand Jesus and his teachings a change of maturity took place in his personality. From no understanding to grasping the Kingdom of God in defending Jesus and using the Law of Moses to break up a divided group ready to kill Jesus to becoming a supporter and lover of Jesus and being a key role player in Jesus burial. This is a great example for all believers to not give up for our hope is in Christ Jesus.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD ESTABLISHED ON EARTH BY GODS SONS AND DAUGHTERS & THEY EXHIBIT GOD’S GLORY IN THEIR LIVES
NUM. 14: 21 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord. DAN. 2: 34, 35, 44, 45 34. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 35. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors, and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them, and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. 44. And in the daysof these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall brake in pieces and consume all these kingdom and, and it shall stand forever. 45. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and it brake in pieces the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. OBAD. 1: 21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion, to judge the mount of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s. JOHN 17: 21 to 26 21. That they all may one as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22. And the glory thou gavest me I have given them, that they may be one even as we are one: 23. I in them and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26. 6
And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them , and I in them. ROM 14: 11, 12 11. For it is written, As I live saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12. So then every one of us shall give an account of himself to God. PHIL. 2: 9, 10, 11 9. Wherefore God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10. That at he name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things inearth ,and things under the earth, 11.And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. COL . 1:26, 27 26. Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations , but now has been made manifest to his saints. 27. To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you the hope of glory. JOHN 13: 31, 32, 35 31. Therefore , when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him. 32. If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself and shall straightway glorify him. 35. By this shall all men know you are my disciples, if you have love one to another. JOHN 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit, so shall ye be my disciples JOHN 17: 21 to 26 21. That they all may one as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22. And the glory thou gavest me I have given them, that they may be one even as we are one: 23. I in them and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and that have known that thou hast sent me. 26. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them , and I in them.
CITIZENS OF KINGDOM OF GOD EMULATE THE KING WITH CHRISTLIKE PERSONALITY TRAITS
NEH. 9: 27 …and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies. OBAD. 1:21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s . 7
DAN.2: 32, 33, 34, 35, 44, 45 32. The images head was fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, 33. His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. 34. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 35. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver , and the gold , broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors, and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. 44. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall brake into pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. 45. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and it brake into pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold, the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. JOHN 10: 34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? JOHN 14: 12 to 14, 12. Verily , verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do he shall do also, and greater works then these shall he do, because I go unto my Father. PAGE. 46
CITIZENS OF KINGDOM OF GOD LIVE BY THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
JOHN 12: 24 Verily, verily, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die it bringeth forth much fruit. MAT.6:10 …..Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven…… LUKE 11: 2……Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven , as in earth……. LUKE 17: 21 Neither will they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! fo , behold, the kingdom of God is within you. ACTS 14:22… and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. ROM. 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. GAL. 5: 18 TO 25 18. But if you are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, adultery, fornication, uncleaness, lasciviousness, 20. Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21. Envyings , murders drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have told you in time past they which do such things shall not enter the kingdom of 8
God. 22. But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law 24. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25. If we live in the spirit let us also walk in the spirit. COL. 1: 16, 17 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. 17. And he is before all things , and by him all things consist. HEB. 2:10 For it became him, for whom are all things made, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. REV. 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he will my son.

EXPLAIN WHAT ARE THESE SPIRITUAL 3 HEAVENS? 3RD HEAVEN DEUT. 26: 15 Look down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless thy people Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou swarest unto our fathers , a land that floweth with milk and honey.
2 COR. 12: 1 to 4 1. It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. 2. I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body , I cannot tell, or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth,) such an one caught up into the third heaven. 3. And I knew such a man, (whether in the body , or out of the body , I 10
cannot tell: God knoweth,) 4. And how that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which is not lawful for a man to utter. HEB.8:1 Now of the things we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, REV.2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches: to him that overcometh I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. LUKE 23: 43 Verily I say unto you today, shalt thou be with me in paradise. (PROPER PUNCTUATION GIVEN IN THIS VERSE NOTE:Original Greek never included punctuation. When this was later added by English translated versions a comma was placed in the wrong area and it gave a mispunctuation which changes the actual meaning of what was being said) 2ND HEAVEN GEN.26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars in the heaven,… PS. 8:3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars which thou hast ordained. ACTS 7: 49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool:… 1ST HEAVEN GEN.7: 11, 12 11. In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12. And the rain was upon the earth forty day and forty nights. JOB 35: 11 Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth , and maketh us wiser then the fowls of heaven? PS.77: 18, 19 18. The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth shook. 19. Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known. PH.2:10, 11 10. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. 11. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. PAGE. 23 WHAT ARE THESE OTHER VOICES HEARD IN HEAVEN? WHO IS ACTUALLY IN HEAVEN? DEUT. 26: 15 Look down from they holy habitation, from heaven. NEH. 9: 6 Thou, even thou, art Lord alone, thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, 11
with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, all that is therein, and thou preservest them all, and the host of heaven worshippeth thee. PS. 110: 1, MAT. 22: 24, MARK 12:36, LUKE 20: 42, 43, ACTS 2: 34, HEB. 1: 13 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. JOHN 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. ACTS 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: REV. 4: 4 TO 6, 8 TO 11 4. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment: and they had on their heads crowns of gold. 5. And out of the throne proceedeth lightening and thundering and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 6. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 8. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him, and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is , and is to come. 9. And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth forever and ever, 10.The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. REV. 5: 6, 11, 12 6. And I beheld and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 11. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands and thousands, 12. Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. REV. 7: 4, 14, 15 4. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. 14. And I said unto him, Sir thou knowest. And he said to me, these are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. REV. 14: 2, 3 2. And I heard a voice from heaven, as a voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: (3. This should start v. 3) and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 3. And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which 12Â Â
were redeemed from the earth. REV. 17: 15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest are where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. REV. 18: 4, 21 4. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and ye receive not of her plagues. REV. 19: 1, 4, 6 1. And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia, Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 4. And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying Amen, Alleluia. 6. And I heard as it were a voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thundering, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. REV. 22: 1, 2 1. And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. SUMMARY: Those present in heaven are 1. God the Father, 2. Jesus, 3.God’S Holy Spirit , 4.The seven Spirits of God, 5.The 24 elders, 6. The four beasts, 7. Innumerable host of angels, 8.The 144,000 pure and undefiled Israelites, 9.Voice of harpers(angelical beings), 10. the sea of waters which were at one point like a sea of crystal glass before the throne of God changes to many crystal clear rivers of waters that flow out from the throne of God as an innumerable amount of Christian believers having one unified voice being a pure river that is crystal clear and untainted as the Word of God is. To elaborate, I believe true Christian believers and followers of the gospel of Jesus who have existed in the past, present and in the future are these one unified sea of waters having one unified common goal which is to be as the Word of God, having but one voice worshipping, honoring, praiseing, praying, obeying God and speaking and living the committed and dedicated lifestyle as a true believer in God’s kingdom on earth yet they are present with God in the heavens as that one voice or that river of life that flows out from the throne of God. . That one voice described in the scriptures above points to a real Christian lifestyle. As a Christian our walks take on many changes throughout our human lifespan. From the beginning with our salvation we began as justified in God but the walk doesn’t stop there but changes into a sanctification growth/changing process of learning by experiences to submit to God and his authority so that He becomes Lord of our lives. This means we must die to our own self will and surrender to the refining process or the stripping away of ourselves by learning to trust God and to obey the Father. The more we die to ourselves we are able to trust God more. We see Him differently with a complete surrender, He is able to trust us more and therefore empower us with more spiritual authority from above to walk on this earth as the calling on our lives takes shape in God’s plan for mankind. In these changes from having part of the truth (Word of God)to having the entire truth we become functional as His servants and mature sons and daughters of God to be used by God from his throne of power and authority as living rivers of life as Jesus was that living waters of life. 13
When we come before the throne of God, we are as a sea of crystal glass (hard, breakable, unbendable, not pliable, slippery and not fit to walk on to becoming part of the throne of God that flows with the leading of the Holy Spirit in becoming part of the rivers of life(Lamb/Jesus) that flow from the throne of God, which is fully functional and mature to be used by God to help establish His kingdom on this earth. To do this is we must first humbly submit to the pruning process of God’s hand. This begins with our love of God and his laws which must be written on our hearts that show a mature nature of Christ Jesus alive and well in our lives. NOTE: I will elaborate on the above # 4. The Seven Spirits of God sent forth on the earth (KEEPING IN MIND SEVEN IS THE SPIRITUAL NUMBER FOR GOD’S PERFECTION). These Sever(al) Spirits are listed as follows: WISDOM EX. 28: 3 And thou shall speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that hey make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priests office. SPIRIT OF GOD EX. 31: 3, EX.35: 31 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship. 1 JOHN 4: 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God. DEUT. 34: 9 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses JUDGMENT AND BURNING IS. 4: 4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment , and by the spirit of burning. SPIRIT OF THE LORD, WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, COUNSEL, MIGHT, KNOWLEDGE AND FEAR OF THE LORD IS. 11: 2 (REFERRING TO JESUS) And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. HUMBLE & CONTRITE IS. 57: 15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy, I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit,, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the spirit of the contrite ones. NEW SPIRIT AND NEW HEART EZE.11: 19, EZE. 36: 26 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you, and I will take the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give them a heart of flesh. EZE. 18: 31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed, and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why ye die, O house of Israel? GRACE & SUPPLICATIONS ZEC.12: 10 (REFERING TO JESUS AND GOD AS ONE) And I 14
will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. MEEKNESS 1 COR. 4: 21, What will ye? Shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, as in the spirit of meekness? GAL. 6: 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself, lest thou be tempted. FAITH 2 COR. 4: 13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken, we also believe, and therefore speak, SPIRITS OF THE PROPHET 1 COR 14: 32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. PROPHECY REV. 19: 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou doit not: I am thy fellowservant, and if thy brethren that that have the testimony of Jesus: Worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. TRUTH 1 JOHN 4: 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us, he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. THERE ARE OTHER SPIRITS LISTED IN SCRIPTURE THAT HAVE ACCESS INTO THE HEAVENLIES (KEEPING IN MIND GOD USES THESE TO DO HIS BIDDING TO COMPLETE HIS PLAN AND BRING GLORY UNTO HIS NAME.) JEALOUSY NUM. 5: 14 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled: EVIL JUDGES 9:23 Then God sent and evil spirit between Abimelech, and the men of Shechem, and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech: 1 SAM .16: 14 But the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him. LUKE 7: 21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits, and unto many that were blind he gave sight. SATAN JOB. 1: 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. FAMILIAR (WITCHCRAFT) 1 SAM. 28: 7 Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said unto him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. 15Â Â
DECEPTION 1 KINGS 22: 21, 22, 23 21. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will persuade him. 22.And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also, go forth, and do so. 23. Now therefore, behold, the Lord hath put a lying spirit in all these thy prophets, and the Lord hath spoken evil concerning thee. PRINCES PS. 76: 12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to kings of the earth. MAN ZEC. 12: 1 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens , and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. HASTINESS LEADING TO FOLLY PRO. 14: 29 He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly. HASTINESS LEADING TO ANGER ECC. 7: 9 Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. PREVERSENESS IS. 19: 14 The Lord hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit. UNCLEAN MARK 1: 23 And there was in their synagogue a man with a unclean spirit , and he cried out, VANITY(PRIDE) & VEXATION ECC.1:14, 17 14. I have seen all the works that are done under the sun, and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. 17. And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. ECC.2: 11, 17, 26 11. And I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was not profit under the sun. 17. Therefore I hated life, because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me” for all is vanity and ve3xation of spirit. 26.For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit. ECC. 4: 4, 6, 16, 4. Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbor. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit. 6. Better is a handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit. 16. There is no end of all the people, even of all that that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit. ECC. 6: 9 Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire: this is also vanity and vexation of spirit. DUMB MARK 9: 17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit. 16
FOUL, DUMB, DEAF MARK 9: 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. SEDUCING 1 TIM. 4: 1 Now the Spirit expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils, ERROR 1 JOHN 4: 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us, he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. DEEP SLEEP IS. 29: 10 For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. SLUMBER ROM. 11: 8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear,) unto this day. ANTI-CHRIST 1 JOHN 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of anti-christ, whereof ye have heard that it should come, and even now already is it in the world.

MAT. 16: 27, 28 27. For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he shall reward every man according to his works. 28. Verily I say unto you , There be some standing here, that shall not taste death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. MAT. 17: 10 TO 13 10. And his disciples asked him, saying, why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? 11. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12. But I say unto you, that Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall the Son of man suffer of them. 13. And the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist. MAT. 24: 30, 31 30. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. MAT. 25: 31. When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 18
MAT. 26: 64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall you see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. MARK 9: 11 TO 13 11. And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? 12. And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things, and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. 13. But I say unto you that Elias is indeed come, and they shall have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. MARK 13: 26, 27 26. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the cloud, with great power and glory. 27. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of the heaven. LUKE 9: 26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels. LUKE 21: 27 At that time they will seethe Son of Man coming in a cloud, with power and great glory. 1 THES 4: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. REV.1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. SUMMARY: Jesus return is in a corporate body of believers that will occur after the first resurrection. First of all Jesus will call all those that are awake or alive physically and all those that are asleep or dead in Christ to awaken for the first resurrection to rule and reign with him for 1000 years. After this 1000 year time frame goes by then the second resurrection will occur and this is the 2nd coming of the Lord Jesus. These glorified saints will witness the second resurrection of the unjust, which is the 2nd death. NOTE: Please see further notes below on this topic. Also further discussion on the resurrections and judgment is covered in more detail later in this study.

But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. 17. These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest, to whom the mist of darkness is reserved . JUDE :8, :12 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 12. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds, trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit twice dead, plucked up by the roots.

For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 11.Verily, I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater then John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater then he. MARK 1: 2 TO 11 2.As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 3. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4. John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5. And there went out And preached unto him all the land of Judea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 6. And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins, and he did eat locusts and wild honey. 7. And preached , saying There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8. I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. 9. And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in the Jordan. 10. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him. 11. And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. LUKE 7: 24, 27, 28 24. And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 27. This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare the way before thee. 28. For I say unto you, Among those born of women there is not a greater prophet that John the Baptist: for he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he. LUKE 9: 52 And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 2 COR. 8: 23 Whether any do enquire of Titus, he is my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ. JAMES 2: 25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? SUMMARY: These clouds/ witnesses/ angels are a group of true Christian believers, with a lifestyle that shows sanctification by obedience bearing good fruit. They also have a spiritual 21
glorified body. They are part of the first resurrection of the dead company for they have ruled and reigned with Christ Jesus for 1000 years and they will come with him to witness the second resurrection/second death but not be a part of it.

DAN. 10: 13, 21 13. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, and I remained there with the kings of Persia. 21. But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince. DAN. 12: 1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was there since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be written in the book. 1 THES. 4: 16 And the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the arch angel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: JUDE 9 Yet Michael the archangel, which contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. REV. 12: 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels, SUMMARY: Michael was an archangel, and was the only one given this title in scripture. There are other angels implied that were as princes or chiefs/first in rank such as Gabriel, Raphael, Peneul. These were the four main angels that controlled the four winds, could do battle, orchestrate musical concerts and be an all around well balanced type of angel or be able to do anything. In the Mormon faith it believes Jesus was Michael in the spiritual realm before he took on flesh and came to earth.
Chapter Four What happened to Elijah? 1 KINGS 19: 15, 16, 17 15. And the Lord said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest anoint Hazael to be king over Syria. 16. And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Isreal : And Elisha the son of Shapat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room. 17. And it shall come to pass , that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay. 2 KINGS 1:3, 4, 17 3. But the angel of the Lord said to Elisha the Tishbite, Arise go up to meet the messengers of Samaria, say unto them, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel that ye go to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron. 4. Now therefore thus saith the Lord, thou shall not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. And Elijah departed. 17. So he died according to the word of the Lord, which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reighed in his stead, in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat King of Judah, because he had no son. (King Ahaziah’s reign lasted two years. 850 B.C. 1 Kings 22:51) 2 KINGS 2: 9 And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away form thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. 2 KINGS 2: 11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire , and parted them both asunder, and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into the heaven. 2 KINGS 2: 15, 16, 17 15. And when the sons of prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, the spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him. 16. And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men, let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the Lord hath taken him up , and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley 17. And they urged him till he was ashamed , he said, Send. They sent therefore fifty men, and they sought three days, but found him not. 2 KINGS 3: 11 TO 14 11. But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the Lord, that we may enquire of the Lord by Him? And one of the king of Israel’s servants answered and said, Here is Elisha the son of Shaphat, which poured water on the hands of Elijah. 12. And Jehoshaphat said, The word of the Lord is with him. So the king of Israel (Jehoram)and Jehoshaphat (king of Judah) and the king of Edom went down to him. 13. And Elisha said unto the king of Israel, What have I to do with thee? Get thee to the prophets of thy father, and to the 23
prophets of thy mother. And the king of Israel said unto him, Nay: for the Lord hath called these three kings, to deliver them into the hand of Moab. 14. And Elisha said, As the Lord of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee or see thee. 2 KINGS 8: 13 (Elisha with a double portion of Elijah’s spirit completes the anointing of the Syrian King Hazael by word and not oil) 2 KINGS 8: 16 And in the fifth year of Joram the son of Ahab king of Isreal, Jehoshaphat being then king of Judah, Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah began to reign. (Joram king of Isreal reigned 12 years 852 B.C. 2 Kings 7: 24 and Jehoshaphat king of Judah reigned 25 years in Jerusalem. 842 B.C. 1 Kings 22: 42) 2 KINGS 9: 1 to 3, 6 (Elisha sends a prophets son with the authority of Elisha to anoint Jehu as king of Israel) 2 KINGS 9: 24 and 27 (Jehu kills Joram and Ahaziah in one day) 2 CHRON. 21: 1, 12 TO 15 1. Now Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David, and Jehoram his son reigned in his stead. 12. And there came a writing to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, thus saith the Lord God of David thy father, Because thou hast not walked in the ways of Jehoshaphat thy father, nor in the ways of Asa king of Judah, 13. But hast walked in the way of the kings of Isreal, and hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a whoring, like to the whoredoms of the house of Ahab, and also hast slain thy brethren of thy fathers house, which were better then thyself: 14. Behold with a great plague, will the Lord smite thy people, and thy children , and thy wives and all thy goods: 15. And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day. (Jehoram reigned in Jerusalem for eight years 834 B. C. 1 Chron. 21: 20) This letters proves the prophet was still alive and on earth after he was removed by the whirlwind and he was replaced by Elisha. The bible tells us nothing more about Elijah after he wrote this letter . HEB. 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement. (So there goes the reincarnation idea. There is death and then there is a day of judgement that we must face, which shall be discussed later in this study) WHERE IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN/KINGDOM OF GOD FOUND? This word is synonymous for the the Kingdom of God. Lets look at scripture.
WHAT IS THE TERMINOLOGY OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN /KINGDOM OF GOD ALL ABOUT? In the New Testament Matthew, a publican or tax collector by trade, is the only apostle of the original 12 apostles that mentions the Kingdom of Heaven (29 times) and the Kingdom of God 24
(3 times), Mark, a disciple of Jesus and companion helper of Peter the apostle, uses the Kingdom of God (15 times), Luke, a disciple of Jesus and a physician uses the Kingdom of God (34 times) and John, a fisherman and an apostle of the original 12 apostles uses the Kingdom of God (3 times). Paul, who was a tentmaker but as Saul he was a Pharisee. Paul went through a major nature and name change in his conversion from Saul to Paul. Paul became a great apostle after the original 12 apostles and uses the Kingdom of God (16 times).and he wrote most of the New Testament. Mark, Luke, John and Paul only use the Kingdom of God terminology and not the Kingdom of Heaven as Matthew does, so this is a synonymous term that means the same thing as explained by the above authors mentioned. The Kingdom of God is used (71 times total) in the entire New Testament. EXAMPLES GIVEN BELOW…………
WHO ARE THE CITIZENS OF GOD’S KINGDOM? MAT. 18: 1 to 4 1. At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2. And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them. 3. Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. MARK 10: 13, 14, 15 13. And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. 14.But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 15. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. LUKE 18: 15, 16 15. And they brought also unto him infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16. But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for such is the kingdom of God. MAT. 5: 3 Blessed is the poor in spirit: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. LUKE 6:20 Blessed be ye poor : for yours is the Kingdom of God. 2 COR. 5: 7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
HOW DO WE GET INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD? JOHN 3: 3,5 3. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. 5. Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. NOTE: John’s main emphasis is placed on the fact that you did not have to undergo a physical death to obtain the Kingdom of God on earth but by living a life of faith in becoming born again 25
to Jesus teachings. This is a new creation life by emersion of the word of God by the leading of the Holy Spirit to create a change which occurs in heart , mind, attitude and character by exhibiting a lifestyle of obedience as a citizen of God’s Kingdom on earth. John mentioned the Kingdom of God only three times throughout all the New Testament and mainly discusses the divinity of Jesus Christ, the love of God and people and to believe or have faith in Jesus for salvation. He was one of the closest disciples that walked with Jesus and was called beloved of Jesus. John even risked being killed for being a follower of Jesus as he stayed up until the end of Jesus life on earth at Jesus crucifiction. John was entrusted to care for Jesus’ natural mother. After he was freed from his prison on the island of Patmos, John died a natural death. It was on this island that God inspired the apostle to write the book of Revelation, whereas, he mentions the Kingdom of God for a third time in Rev.12: 10.

(this was a warning that could be applied in every day life basically stating when you curse someone with the label of fool or those who were unruly, disobedient and non reasoning people that could not learn or chose not to learn you were calling yourself that as well, which was a hellish life existence. So it is best not to curse anyone because who are we to judge by calling them a fool when in actuality we can be a fool. MAT. 7:2, MARK 4:24, LUKE 6:38 whatsoever measure of JUDGMENT OR JUSTICE WE GIVE WHETHER BY SPEECH, BY HEARING OR ACTION it will come back to us.) MAT. 18: 9 & MARK 9:47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather then have two eyes to be cast into hell fire. (The eye is the key to the soul and it is our vision both physical and spiritual and denotes the lifestyle we choose to walk in, either good or evil. This was a tip to be applied in everyday life of the living, not dead. It is best to identify the problem is a matter of heart and morality and it is a good way of saying choose to walk with a clear eye and choose to serve Jesus and be a partaker of being part of his kingdom or we choose to sin and fall short of truly understanding the goodness in serving God, therefore we can have a hellish GeHenna, city dump existence even while alive on this earth. When we sin or miss the mark of the prize of the high calling we truly miss the good life of peace, joy and righteousness in the Holy Ghost. A practical reality for that day was if a person has a problem with sin(s), which are acts of lawlessness then commits a crime(s) against others then there was justice for any crimes committed and it could lead to the death punishment as a criminal with the burial of a criminal in GEHENNA, the city dump.) Worms/ maggots / larvae are discussed here in reference to Gehenna, which was located in the Valley of Hinnom just outside the city walls of Jerusalem and to the south. This was a city dump where trash, dead animal carcasses and even dead bodies of criminals were thrown into this dump to burn with fires that were kept continually burning to dispose of the trash, bringing about a way to sanitize the area. When the consuming fires burned down flies would lay their eggs in the rotting trash to feed on it creating a place of nourishment till the eggs were able to metamorphis, which takes a total of 18 days from the egg then pupae stage to the fly stage. 27
These eggs go from a larvae/maggots/worms and then eventually change again into flies to fly away so they did not actually die but changed. If the fires resumed and there were worms present then the fires restarted so the worms would burn as well. But the cycle of the flys returning to rotting flesh and depositing their eggs is perpetual and ongoing. The next scriptures refer to the worm illustrating shame and being in a continual state of shame with this type of burial. Even the criminals did not want this type of burial due to it being you are labeled condemned and accursed. The unquenchable fire meant as long as sin was in our lives then God’s consuming fire would continue to burn all the false, dross, chaff or the trash out of our lives to refine and purify us to bring about his nature in us. (NOTE: THIS WAS AN ACTUAL TRASH DUMP THAT EXISTED IN JERUSALEM IN THE PAST). To understand the RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD in regards to the JUDGEMENT lets look up these key terms involved in the RESURRECTION and JUDGMENT, LAW, ORDINANCE, STATUTE, GOD’S WORD, COMMANDMENT, FIRE AND LAKE OF FIRE. We will find they are all interconnected in understanding a universal reconciliation that all of mankind was, is and will be saved.

Believest thou this? ACTS 2: 31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell( see further study on hell this means hades- grave), neither his flesh did see corruption. ACTS 17:18 Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection. ACTS 23:6, 8 6. But when Paul perceived that one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee: the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question. 8. For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but he Pharisees confess both. ACTS 24:15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust. ROMANS 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 1 COR. 15: 42 TO 50 42. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption: 43. It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power: 44. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body. 45. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural, and afterward that which is spiritual. 47. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 48. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 49. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 50. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot enter the kingdom of God , neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 1 THES. 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with a voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 29Â Â
2 TIM. 2: 18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already, and overthrown the faith of some. HEB. 6: 1, 2. 1. Therefore leaving the principals of the doctrine of Christ, let us go unto perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith towards God, 2. Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgement. NOTE: Paul points out in HEB. 6: 1, 2 that the above mentioned truths being taught are foundational concepts in Christianity. Most modern day Christian churches of today do not even cover these topics or even believe in them. This includes the resurrection of the dead truth. If you google the word Sadducees and Pharisees of Jesus day you will learn that there were some main points of difference that both groups believed in yet only united in ministry on one given occurrance, to murder Jesus. MARK 14: 53, 15: 1 and JOHN 11: 48 – 50
Chapter Five Who were the Pharisees/Sadducees/Scribes? PHARISEES These were the common people or blue collar Jewish priests and were considered seperatists their practices were for priestly laws of tithes and purity considered as extremists. They did not hold as many voting seats in the Sanhedrine, which was the Jewish Supreme Court of Jesus day. They were followers of the Wise and believed in the written Torah (Moses law) and the oral Torah (Talmud/Rabbinical law). They held to using sophisticated scholarly interpretations of the bible. They believed in the Luni-solar calendar 1.They believed in the resurrection of the dead . ACTS 23: 6 2.They believed in the angels and demons. ACTS 23: 8 3.They believed that God controlled all things, yet decisions made by an individual contributed to the course of a person’s life. Josephus Wars of the Jews II 8, 14 and Josephus 4.They believed in an afterlife, with appropriate reward and punishments on an individual basis. Josephus. Antiquities of the Jews XVIII 1, 3
SADDUCEES They were the aristocrats and priests from the tribe of Levi and their emphasis was on priestly obligations for the priests. They were considered as elitists. They held most of the 71 voting seats in the Sanhedrine, which was the Jewish Supreme Court of Jesus day. They believed in the written Torah (Moses law) and not the oral Torah (Talmud/Rabbinical law).They held to using literal written meanings of the bible. It was a question as to their belief in the Luni-solar calendar but upon popular pressure they may have believed in this. They disappeared after the destruction of the temple in 70 AD and not information is recorded about them except from the Pharisees, Scribes and the Essenes. 1.They denied any resurrection of the dead. MAT. 22: 23, MARK 12: 18 TO 27, ACTS 23: 8 2.They denied the existence of a spiritual world involving angels and demons. ACTS 23: 8. 3.They were completely self-sufficient to the point of denying God’s involvement in human life. Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews XIII 10, 6 and XVIII 1, 4, 16 Josephus, Wars of the Jews II 8, 14, 165. Peter Connolly, Living in the Time of Jesus of Nazareth (p.30) 31
4. They denied any afterlife, holding that the soul perished at death and therefore there was not penalty or reward after the earthly life. Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews XIII 10, 6. Peter Connolly, Living in the Time of Jesus of Nazareth (p. 30)
SCRIBES/SECRETARIES/ LAWYERS They worked mostly for the Pharisees copying the word of God. They were considered to be secretaries and lawyers. They were interpreters and agents of the rules. They were teachers of the written Torah (Moses law) and drew up important legal documents for the common people. Most scribes were against Jesus and sided with the Pharisees. MAT.12: 14, JOHN 11: 53 Some were neutral. MAT. 13: 52 Some praises Jesus. MARK 12: 28 Some defended Jesus. JOHN 9: 50, 51, ACTS 23: 9 Note: many facts came from Mitchell G. Bard. The Complete Idiots Guide to Middle East Conflicts. NY. MacMillan, 1999, and other chart info from Professor Eliezar Segal.
WHY DID THE PHARISEES, SCRIBES AND THE SADDUCEES HAVE PROBLEMS WITH JESUS TO THE POINT OF WANTING TO MURDER HIM?
1.He did not live up to their expectations of Messiah and challenged their religious system. MAT. 5: 3 TO 39 TO 48, LUKE 6: 20 TO 29 TO 49, JOHN 8: 33 TO 45 2.He declared himself one with God, the Son of God, the Messiah meaning the Christ and that true disciples were as gods . Also His Father was the heavenly Creator and His kingdom was to do the Fathers will. MAT. 12; 23 TO 37, 46 to 50, MARK 3: 22 TO 35, LUKE 11: 17 TO 26, JOHN 8: 48 TO 59, MAT. 16: 15 TO 19, MARK 8: 27 TO 30, MARK 14: 61,62,LUKE 4: 41,LUKE 9: 18 TO 20, JOHN 1: 41, JOHN 4: 25, 26 AND 42, JOHN 6:69, JOHN 10: 19 TO 39, JOHN 20: 31 3.He did not treat them with the respect that they craved and was not impressed with their external acts of goodness creating harsh bondages on the people by twisting the word of God. He called them hypocrites, fools, blind leaders, whitened sepulchers, extortionists, murderers, serpents and vipers. MAT. 23, LUKE 11: 45 TO 54. 4. He identified them as being children of the devil not Abraham, whom they proclaimed was their father. JOHN 8: 42 TO 47 5. He warned the people to do as they say but not to follow their example which is very hypocritical to the true law of God. MAT 23: 1 to 4 32
6.He offended them because he did not observe their traditions on cleansings. MAT. 10 TO 12, MAT. 23: 24 TO 29, MARK 7: 6 TO 8, 14 TO 23, LUKE 11: 37 TO 42 7.He did not observe the rigid rabbinical laws of the Sabbath but was more interested in its true meaning. MAT. 12: 1 TO 8, MARK 2: 23 TO 28 8. He healed on the Sabbath, a forbidden thing to do according to Oral Law (Talmud/Rabbinical law). MAT. 12: 10 TO 14, MARK 3: 2 TO 6, LUKE 6: 6 TO 11, LUKE 13: 14 TO 16, LUKE 14: 1 TO 5, JOHN 5: 3 TO 16 9.He never taught on hell as a tormenting punishment place the soul goes to upon death if that person was not good according to their standards of good. He condemned them to HELL meaning Gehenna a trash dump outside of Jerusalem for disposing of garbage, dead animal carcasses and dead criminal’s bodies…MAT 23: 15, 33 and a HELL/HADES meaning death /grave. LUKE 16: 19 TO 31 He gave a teachable parable to the Pharisees about Lazarus in regards to their hearts and hypocritical actions. LUKE 16: 19 TO 31. In this parable there are characters that mean something to the religious leaders that Jesus knew they would understand. The rich ruler clothed in purple, representing the royal tribe of Judah, and fine linen representing righteousness of the Levites and Priests. So in a nutshell we are talking about the Israelic nation and the religious lawgivers which led the people spiritually. The rich ruler fared sumptuously everyday. So these followers of the law were sons of Father Abraham who was noted as the father of the faith of the Jewish nation. They were blessed naturally and spiritually abundantly. So it is that the rich man was characteristic of Israel, the Pharisees, Sadducees and Scribes. Being in Abrahams bosom as taught by the Jewish priests were being in a resting place or the most cherished bosom of God the Father per se ...in heaven. Lazarus, a beggar represents the gentile nation and the dogs licking his sores represent other peoples not in covenant with God. Here Lazarus was the common humble non accepted, outcasted sinner covered in sores laying outside the gate of this ruler with the dogs or other nations desiring a few crumbs of food from the ruler’s table and trying to care for his wounds or inflictions. As being part of God’s covenantal blessed and chosen people the nation of Israel were to reach out to other nations as God wanted them to do and to feed the poor and sick naturally and spiritually but they were not doing their job and stayed separated and elite to only those of the Israelic nation. Upon death of the rich ruler and of Lazarus, the rich ruler sees Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom and a gulf fixed between them whereas the rich ruler is in torment of a flame. the rich ruler makes a request of father Abraham or God to send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger into water and cool his tongue from the tormented flame. Here the now dead religious rulers and nation of Israel asks God to allow righteous salvation to come in the form of God’ s authority to give his Holy Spirit or the water to him to cool his tongue. Here the tongue meaning what is actually in the heart, for it is out of the tongue the heart . He no longer wants to be in a torment of a flame, as in the fiery furnace of affliction which brings change . He no longer wants to be separated by this gulf so he is seeking change for the better. The gulf or chasm is the differences of opinions, mindset and lack of faith in regards to one’s understanding of salvation. This was a 33
misunderstanding of that day and even now being that salvation is a free gift from God by faith and grace through Jesus Christ, not accomplished by works or religious ceremony. So the gulf or chasm is closed with a changing of ones attitude and awareness of who Jesus Christ is as savior. Father Abraham or God tells the rich ruler that he received his reward on earth being comforted in his natural state of a rich lifestyle and that was his consolation at that time and Lazarus now has the peace of a higher spiritual understanding or awareness by receiving Jesus as savior by faith..God would not remove him till a change is brought by the fire of understanding God’s word. This is the second resurrection or white throne judgment. As it is when a person dies he/she sleeps and then that non believer, criminal and non practice of the faith is awakened for this resurrection to be judged. In v.23, 28 torment(s)- BASANOS- GOING TO THE BOTTOM, A TORTURE. v. 24, 25 tormented-ODUNAO-TO GRIEVE, TO HAVE SORROW speaks of being without spiritual understanding of whom God really is. In this resurrection even the rich man or religious leaders and those knowing or not knowing or accepting Jesus as Messiah will understand and be refined and purified through the flame or fire of God’s word being spoken to man. It is then the valley or gulf which is a separation of spiritual awareness shall be filled with the true word of God not mans traditions and he too will be saved as in the law of redemption for Jesus is all of mankind’s redeemer. Through this process God is able to change ALL unjust vessels creating humble beings bending their knees and professing with their mouths that Jesus Christ is Lord. This is God’s glory will cover the entire earth in a corporate body of believers. A second request comes whereas the ruler asks Father Abraham to send Lazarus to his fathers house whereas he has five brothers and Father Abraham reply’s that they do not have spiritual ears to hear or hearts to comprehend to repent and change and accept the Messiah has come. The five brothers who were characteristic to Jacob and Leah sons. They had 6 sons, Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun and 1 daughter Dinah. Here in the story this rich ruler being the religious order of Israel represented Judah whereas Jesus came form the tribe of Judah and was rejected by the religious leaders. Normally it was the tribe of Levi who were the priests of that day but it is the priestly ministry of Judah(Jesus lineage) that crys out for his brothers to change their way of thinking and believing in Jesus to accept him and not reject him. Father Abraham or God answers the ruler that if they could not accept Jesus as their Messiah at that time, who was a fulfillment of the law then how could even the Torah (law of Moses) bring a repentance or changing of the heart 10.He attacked their intentions of their heart on the topic of giving. MAT. 23: 16 TO 23, MARK 7: 9 -13, LUKE 11: 41, 42 11.He received and kept company with sinners whom they despised and rejected. MAT. 9: 11 TO 13, LUKE 5: 30-32, LUKE 15: 1-32. 12.He taught on humility and self surrender, something they did not want to accept.

And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten. That the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number. 3. Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem vile unto thee.

MATT. 7: 20 TO 23 20. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven (God), but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord have we not 35
prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderous works? 23. And then i will profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. MAT. 25: 32 TO 46 32.And before him shall be gathered all nations, and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd that divideth his sheep from the goats. 33. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35. For I was hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty and , and you gave me drink: I was a stranger and you took me in: 36. Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick and ye visited me, I was in prison and ye came unto me. 37. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when did we see thee an hungred, and fed thee? Or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38. When saw thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked and clothed thee? 39. Or when saw we thee sick , or in prison, and came unto thee? 40. And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart form me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42. For I was an hungred , and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty and ye gave me no drink: 43. I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison and ye visited me not. 44. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minster unto thee? 45. Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. LUKE 12: 42 TO 49 42. And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? 43. Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44. Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. 45. But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming, and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidservants, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken, 46. The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47. And that servant which knew his lordâ€™s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes , shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom, men hath committed much, of him they will ask the more. 49. I have come to send fire on the earth, and what will I, if it be already kindled? LUKE 13: 24 TO 30 24. Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin stand without , and to knock at the door, saying Lord, Lord, open the door unto us, and he shall answer and say unto you, I know not whence you are: 26. Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our 36Â Â
streets. 27. But he shall say, I tell you, I know ye not whence ye are, depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 28. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God and you yourselves thrust out. 29. And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30. And, behold there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last. HEB. 6: 1, 2 1. Therefore leaving the principals of the doctrine of Christ, let us go unto perfection, not laying a foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God. 2. Of the doctrine of baptisms and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. 2 PETER 2: 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished. REV. 20: 4 to 6 4. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them :and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast , neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands: and they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. REV. 20: 11 to 15 11. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on I, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and there was found no place for them. 12. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. REV.21: 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolators, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

ROM. 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. ACTS: 7: 22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and deeds. TIM. 1: 8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully. 1 JOHN 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin trangresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. Note: The eternal hell fire and total annihilation doctrines that have crept into our Christian churches needs to be examined …. 1. The patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph never mentioned or taught this even to their children. 2. This was not mentioned before the Law was given to Moses on Mt. Sinai. 3. It was not recognized, mentioned or taught by Moses who was educated in Egyptian belief and lifestyles structures and culture. It was the Egyptians which taught an after life involving heaven with rewards and a hell with punishments or total annihilation 4.Jesus never taught this concept and when he used the word hell in scripture he was referring to hades or shoel meaning death and Gehenna a garbade/waste dump outside of the city of Jerusalem. 5.The Apostle Paul, who was a Pharisee never mentioned or taught this eternal punishment doctrine or total annihilation in any of the New Testament letters to the gentiles. Why did the Pharisees teach this and how did it creep into the Christian church today? There is a strong influence with the Egyptians with the Apocryphas and other historical writings when Israel began to forsake the Laws of Moses between the 400 silent years from Malachi, the last prophet to Matthew the Apostle when there was no voice of God till Jesus came. Continual assault of misteachings and acceptance of others cultural beliefs from Babylonian to the Medes and Persians customs carry over from slavery in these lands into the Israel belief structure. Till Jesus the Messiah came to dispute with Pharisees and Sadducees on these astringent laws they were giving the people yet did not want to follow themselves. Jesus even stated to his apostles and disciples that even these leaders of the law would hear the parables that he would teach and would not receive or understand them. These were hidden to some lest they would receive it and repent and be saved. That is why the religious leaders and the political leaders worked together in murdering Jesus to silence the Word, which is an impossibility due to the fact that God’s plan was to create a kingdom of peace to cover the earth and have no end through a corporate body of believers led by the Holy Spirit. These misteachings continued to permeate into the lsrael belief structure with the Romans and Greeks, Germans, Huns and Anglo Saxons all the way into the Dark Ages. It is here that the Orthodoxical Catholic Church along with Luther the founder of Lutheranism, whom slaughtered many true believers that Celebrated Gods Holy Feast days and worshipped on Sabbath-Saturday creating a hidden facet of true believers. During this time the Word of God was hidden away by the Anabaptists and then passed on to true devout followers writing translations of the bible. Still these pagen ideas, cultures, customs bears its polluted taint onto Gods Word with mans traditions making Gods word to no effect so that in current day modern Christian churches we still are practicing 39
these misteachings. From these groups of peoples there comes a multi-god fractioned mindset of a trinity, substitution, immortality, reincarnation, eternal torment and/or annihilation for the soul. All of these teaching s were used by powerful religious and political leaders to keep the people in a state of ignorance and submission, to promote sectarianism and separatism. Also used to promote war and the take over of certain countries to seek world dominion and power by gaining land and resources. This was not the kingdom Jesus spoke of and wanted to set up. Note: DAN. 2: 32 to 45 This was already prophesied by Daniel’s interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream . He was a Babylonian king controlling most of the world at that time frame. One given true fact that remains consistent in this interpretation God’s kingdom will prevail all these governmental and religious systems and it will encompass the entire earth through a corporate body of believers .

And when the Lord saw he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses , Moses. And he said, Here I am. 5. Moreover he said I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Issac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God. DEUT. 4: 10 to 13, 24, 33, 36 10. Specially the day that thou stoodest before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children. 11. And ye came near and stood under the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness. 12. And the Lord spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude, only ye heard a voice. 13. And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments, and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. 24. For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. 33. Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard and live? 36. Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire, and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire. DEUT. 5: 23 to 26 23. And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders, 24. And ye said, Behold, the Lord our God has shewed us his glory and his greatness , and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth. 25. Now therefore why should we die? For this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any more then we shall die. 26. For who is there of all flesh , that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?. 43Â Â

And his breath as an overflowing stream(LAKE OR RIVER), shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err. 30.

But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

EX.20: 18 to 22 18. And all the people saw the thundering, and the lightenings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it they removed , and stood afar off. 19. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. 20. And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God has come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. 21. And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was. 22. And the Lord said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. DEUT. 33: 2, 3 2. And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them, he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them. 3.

I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. 12. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. 13.

And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. SUMMARY: GOD is sovereign and has many names and is represented in many forms throughout all bible history and even in our lives God has reveled himself to us as a God that 46Â Â
can do the impossible. GODS WORD is JUDGEMENT/COMMANDMENT/THE LAW/ORDINANCE/ STATUTE/FIRE AND THE LAKE OF FIRE. | They are all one. This encompasses God’s universal laws He has set in motion. At God the Father’s appointed time for the first resurrection, Jesus will call all those alive in the faith and those that are dead as well, a change will occur an glorified body state will be given to these just souls and then they will rule and reign with Jesus for 1000 years on earth. These just true believers of Jesus Christ, they are covered in the blood of the lamb and have relationship with Jesus. As overcomers they have undergone all three baptisms, one of which is fire and is a refining process that bears the seal of sanctification and living a lifestyle of obedience to God. Because of this when the second resurrection occurs they will not go through the second death. During this 1000 year time period those just souls that that have been called by God will continue to be fed spiritually and naturally from Jesus own hand as they learn and experience how be governors and tutors, rulers, judges, kings (queens) priests (priestesses)and prophets (prophetesses). Discerning and living as the will of God, operate in God’s law and reigning in His authority. Being led by the Holy Spirit and in Jesus presence gleaning from him on a day to day basis growing in maturity as sons and daughters of the most high God. This is the first resurrection. At the second resurrection judgment occurs. This is when Jesus will return with and in these chosen people that have lived and reigned with him for 1000 years. These people are the angels/ messengers/ apostles, they are the clouds of witnesses that accompany Jesus for the second resurrection. Then as the God the Father sit son his white throne He will call all those unjust . These are naturally alive yet spiritually dead as well as those naturally dead and spiritually dead as well. These unjust, include lawless Christians that are not obedient to God, criminals, transgressors of the law, suicides, atheists, those who openly reject Jesus and his gospel, those who do not understand the word of God, those who have never heard the word of God, those of various denominations and even Judas the betrayer . This JUDGMENT from God is when all those unjust shall stand before His white throne of God and be held accountable for all their works. The books of works are opened and a persons life will be reviewed and it is during this time they must give an account for their actions on earth. This is when God clarify’s with those that had no clue to allowing them to understand their actions deserve merit and their purging is not as severe compared to those whom call themselves righteous, who will be re-evaluated to God’s standards and informed they do not measure up and their purging is a more severe process. Those workers of iniquity, criminals, atheists etc…. face a firey baptismal lake to get a whole new nature change in their refining process. When God judges as a FIRE and as a LAKE OF FIRE He does this by speaking his WORD/ LAW/ORDINANCES/STATUTES/COMMANDMENTS/JUDGEMENT to bring about correction, understanding and balance of Who He really is. He is the CREATOR of ALL MANKIND and SOVEIGN RULER who will burns up any false, dross, chaff, anti-Christ spirit, ignorance, human work. Crime against the cross and Jesus and produces an humble empty vessel, repentant and desiring change completely submitted to God, His WORD and His authority. It is through the 47
blood of the Lamb/ Jesus ALL knees shall bow and ALL tongues will confess that Jesus is Lord. A kinsman redeemer law goes into effect and all those just will then take those changed humble new converts up under their wing to mentor, train, lead, guide, show by example how to rule as maturing sons and daughters of God as they [put into effect everything they were taught by Jesus in those 1000 years as they ruled with Him. It is God’s plan to cover and fill the earth with His glory and this will be found in a corporate body of believers as we fill the new earth and new heavens. Truly we must understand that God is not a separatist God that excludes certain people due to a mans standard of good or bad. God does not punish souls forever in a fire of torment. God is merciful and sovereign and does not destroy or totally annihilate a soul due to an action that His mercy and blood has covered. AT THIS TIME THE FATHER WILL PUT AN END TO DEATH/THE GRAVE, HELL (TARTEROO), IN WHICH JESUS HOLDS THE KEYS. AND HE WILL CHANGE THE HEAVEN TO BECOME A NEW HEAVEN. THIS IS ALSO THE TIME WHEN GOD AS A FIRE JUDGES ALL FALLEN ANGELS AND DEMONS IN TARTEROO. GOD AS A REFINING AND PURIFYING FIRE BURNS OUT ANY FALSENESS, CHAFF OR DROSS AND BRINGS CORRECTION AND CHANGE TO THESE FALLEN ANGELS AND DEMONS. HE THEN PLACES THESE NEW SPIRITUAL ANGELS WHICH ARE MORE IN A LEARNING STATE AS CHERUBSTO BE PLACED UNDER OR GOVERNED BY LEADERSHIP PRINCES ANGELICAL BEINGS SO THEY TOO CAN LEARN TO SERVE AND WORSHIP GOD UNWAVERING AND WITHOUT QUESTION IN A NEW HEAVEN AS GOD STATES. Many times our concept of God is distorted by our ideas of how we view God. In understanding Gods plan for mankind and who he really is we must identify some key terms that are frequently misused and mistaught and clarify them according to bible scripture.

COL. 2: 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses, SUMMARY: Any thing that is a debt-which can be moral and/or financial, iniquity-not a right action, sin-to know the right thing to do and not to do it, transgress-to break the law or be in a state of lawlessness, trespass -to do anything other then or go outside of doing the right thing are all considered acting or going against God and his laws.

JOB 3: 3, 11, 13, 17 3. Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night which it was said, There is a man child conceived. 11.Why died I not from the womb? Why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly? 13. For now should I have laid still and been quiet, I should have slept: then had I been at rest, 17. There the wicked cease from troubling: and there the weary be at rest. PS. 13:3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death MAT. 9: 18, 24, 25 18. While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and shall live. 24. He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. 25. But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.

And all wept, and bewailed her: but he said, Weep not, she is not dead, but sleepeth. 53. And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead. 54. And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called saying, maid arise. 55. And her spirit came again, and she arose straightway: and he commanded to give her meat . JOHN 11: 11, 14, 43, 44 11.These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth, but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. 14.

For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: 37. But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption. 1 COR. 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you and many sleep. 1 COR. 15:20 But now is risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 1 COR. 15: 51, 52 51. Behold, I shew you a mystery, We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52. In a moment , in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 THES. 4: 14 to 16 14. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him, 15. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord hall not prevent them which are asleep. 16. From the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, 56
and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first: HEB. 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. (So there goes the reincarnation idea.)

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned. 17. For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. 18. Therefore as by the offence of one judgement came upon all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 63

MAT. 17: 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall come first, and restore all things. SUMMARY: Jesus Christ apply’s and becomes all Universal Laws, which are all free gifts from God. So by becoming a fulfillment of prophecies in his birth, death, burial and resurrection by his name….Yah-shuah God saves all of mankind. It is the free gift of God which is by GRACE(Univ. Law)that Jesus implements his ministry of RECONCILIATION(Univ. Law) and RESTORATION (Univ. Law) and offers REDEMPTION (Univ. Law)for mankind’s sin . As the righteousness of God the Father, Jesus as divinity and by becoming sin in which he took on human flesh Jesus free’s mankind from sin, past, present and future, all of which leads to death. In Jesus ministry, God the Father is stating he is no longer separated from man because of sin. God implements FORGIVENESS (Univ. Law) for mankind that he wants his disciples to implement and experience hat God gave freely to all of mankind whether they accept Jesus or not. Whether they come to the knowledge of God the Father or not. These Laws covered magnify the greatness of God’s goodness by saving all of mankind and this is clearly shown in the resurrections of the dead. Which indicates what happens to those souls that knowingly or unknowingly accept Jesus Christ. This has been covered in greater detail earlier in this study under judgment and the resurrections.

And not as it is by one that sinned and so is the gift: for the judgement was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offenses unto justification. 18. Therefore as by the offence, of one judgement came upon all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19.

Summary: Salvation is given to all mankind because God saves, justification is a free gift given to those believers of Jesus when they choose to follow the teachings of Jesus, sanctification is a process of holiness that not all Christians partake in because of allowing lawlessness and disobedience to govern their lifestyles and this shows in their relationship with God and by the fruit or actions of how they treat others. That is why there will be many Christians who think of themselves as Christians by their own standards and not Godâ€™s standards and they will be in the second resurrection and not the first.
