Is The Bible The Inerrant Word Of God?

I watched a documentary about the finding of an old manuscript of the New Testament. Supposedly the oldest manuscript ever found at the time from the 3rd Century. What was interesting was that they focused on the ending of Mark where the angel told the women at the tomb that Jesus was not there that he arose from the dead and that ended Mark. No verses telling of Jesus appearing to his disciples after he arose. They make multiple comments about Mark’s not showing evidence of Jesus resurrection. It appears who ever copied that manuscript left it out because it is in our scriptures.

What makes me scratch my head is they make no mention whatsoever that Jesus appeared to his disciples after his resurrection in Matthew’s, Luke’s and John’s gospel! So if Matthew, Luke, and John failed to show Jesus appearing to his disciples after his resurrection they surely would have jumped on it BUT since only Mark’s gospel left it out that is what they concentrated on trying to prove that the copies of scripture we have are not reliable.

My take is this, God made sure that the record of his son Jesus Christ appearing to his disciples after his resurrection WAS included in Matthew, Luke and John’s account in that manuscript they found or they surely would have pointed it out to us that it was not included in the other gospels.

This just shows me another attempt by godless men to try and discredit the word of God.

Do I think the scriptures we have is the perfect inerrant word of God? NO, absolutely not. The manuscripts we have are copies of copies of copies of the original manuscripts the Apostles wrote. Let me state this clearly, THE ORGINAL MANUSCRIPTS ARE GONE! The ORGINAL manuscripts were the perfect inerrant word of God. No one will ever find a manuscript written by the Apostles, they are destroyed through constant use and abuse of being handled so much; being transferred from one church to another. They had to produce multiple copies of those original manuscripts of the Apostles, and they just kept making copies of those copies.

What this means is yes, there is going to be scribal errors occasionally. Words omitted or added, heck even verses dropped. It is because man is error prone, no matter how careful he tries to be.

God even showed this happened in the ancient times. “How do you say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain.” Jeremiah 8:8

Lying pens of the scribes. God specifically told his people “do not add to nor take away from my words” Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:22; Proverbs 30:6; Revelation 18:19.

Well, guess what? If they did not obey him in regards to his other commands they did not obey him with this command about added to and taking away from his word. Why should that surprise you that men manipulate the scriptures according to their own agenda?

God did not stop the scribes from writing or copying his word falsely back then and he is not going to stop people today from manipulating, corrupting his word today. How else is he to test us as to whether we really want to love, serve and obey him if he does not put us to the test to see if we will stay loyal, true to him and not go whoring after false teachers and false publishers who manipulate and corrupt his word.

I use multiple versions of scripture but my main version is the KJV of 1611, mainly because I feel it is the least in corruption. The KJV of 1611 when compared with the Geneva Bible of 1599, you can see the influence of the Roman Church in the KJV. But as I said I use multiple scriptures of the 1500’s, 1600’s and 1800’s. I tend to stay away from translations from the 20th century. This is just my preference. “One man esteems one day above another: another esteems every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.” Roman 14:5 This is what is right for me, that I am persuaded of.

No, it’s not blasphemy or heresy to believe the scriptures we have now is not the inerrant word of God, it is just common sense to realize that evil men will try to corrupt the word of God just as they did in ancient times. Keeps us on our toes when doing research and studying his word.

What If They Won’t Listen?

I can not control what people believe. I encounter many people in my world who hold to, or believe false doctrine, false teachings. Does it concern me? Yes! Absolutely. I am of the same mindset as my God, not willing that any should perish but that all come to the truth.

Will all come to the truth? NO! Absolutely not BUT, yes but, it is NOT my job or position to convict people of their need to get right with God and his son, Yahweh Elohim and Yahshua Messiah or God and Jesus Christ his son as they are popularly referred to. It is the spirit’s job to convict.

My job or position is to proclaim the truth in my world, whether the people I come into contact wish to receive the truth or not is up to them and the spirit if the spirit convicts them. In other words, it is not up to me and my eloquent oratory skills. I am just to be a light to my world of darkness.

What if they refuse to listen? That is their choice!

There are two classes of people in my world that I come into contact on a daily basis. Those who claim they are saved, and those who are unbelievers, who do not claim any relationship with God or his son. Those are the only two type of people anyone will ever meet in their world. Believers and unbelievers.

Your world encompasses your neighborhood, the places you shop, get petrol, restaurants, malls, your workplace, places you go for entertainment, gyms and sports facilities, etc. You get the picture. That is your world and the world you are to be a light in.

But what if they won’t listen? So what! Did you not read in scriptures…. No man comes to the Father but through me, and no man can come to me unless the Father draws them? It is up to you to proclaim, it is up to the Father to draw NOT YOU!

But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sins, being condemned of himself.” Titus 3:9-11

In other words after the 1st and 2nd admonition or warning of them if they persist in going against the truth then reject them! Leave them alone! Let God send someone else to deal with them, it is not up to you to bang them over the head with your bible. Maybe God has someone who can reach them, so get out of the way.

And when you come into a house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.” Matthew 10:12-14 You need to read verses 1 -14, this was our Master’s instructions to his disciples when he sent them out to proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God. If they do not want to listen then that is on them, go somewhere else and proclaim.

Nowhere do I read in the gospels where Jesus ran after someone who turned away from him, running after them trying to convince them of the error of their ways, he just did not do that: They asked, he answered, they believed or did not believe, he did not run after them if they did not believe. He let them walk away, it was their choice.

You Put Yourself In The Lake of Fire

God gave us everything we need to live a victorious life. We have the scriptures, were God lays out his instructions and teachings, how he wants us to behave toward him and behave toward our fellow man. It’s all there for anyone to read, understand and apply those principles.

Is it God’s fault if you don’t take the time to read his instructions and teachings and apply them to your life? If you have a miserable life, is that God’s fault? He said he has come to give us life and life more abundantly. If you are not living an abundant life is that God’s fault?

If you are not reading, understanding, meditating, and applying his instructions and teachings you have no one to blame but yourself. Oh, sure you can blame God. You can whine, bemoan the fact that your life sucks, but take the responsibility for your actions and behavior and man up that it is you who are at fault and not God.

God is not going to come and sit by your side and make you read his instructions and teachings, nor is he going to whack you upside the head if you don’t. God leaves it up to you. That’s right, God leaves it up to you how or if you want to be in a relationship with him. In the end no matter how much you point fingers at your preacher, wife, husband, friends, co-workers, television, internet, all these excuses are going to amount to naught when you stand before him in in his court of judgment.

So lets stop pretending and start making progress with getting into his instructions and teachings and applying the principles he has laid out in scripture so that when we stand before him in his court of judgment we don’t have to worry or fret about what excuse we can conjure up, because at that time no excuse is going to make a difference, if you failed him in this life your reward will be, your sentence after being judged in his court of judgment will be the Lake of Fire. He won’t like tossing you into the Lake of Fire, but because of his holy justice he won’t have any other recourse, you and you along forced him to execute you in the Lake of Fire. Do you really understand that? You and only you will be the reason you are sentenced to the Lake of Fire. Right now your actions and behaviors are leading you to the Lake of Fire or they are leading you to paradise on earth, eternal life in his Kingdom. You make that choice, NOT God. He has done everything in his power to see that you do not end up in the Lake of Fire, even to the point of letting mankind kill his only son, just so you have the opportunity to accept and be saved or reject and be damned.

The choice is yours, make the right choice, choose wisely.

You may say, “But I don’t understand the bible when I read it, it makes no sense!”. If that is what is happening to you then my friend get on your knees and ask God to enlighten you, give you the wisdom to understand.

For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14

This block of verses from 22:1-14 shows just what I refer to. It just depends on your excuses or not whether you are receptive to God’s call. As I said, God is NOT going to grab you and drag you into his Kingdom.

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us which are saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthian 1:18

But we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling-block, and to the Greeks foolishness; But to them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:23-24

What we have here in these block of verses is God telling humans that he does not accept everyone who he calls. It just depends on their attitude, what they focus their attention on in life, and whether that human (meaning you and I) even care about spiritual things. If you are not receptive, God is not obligated to keep returning to you and giving you multiple chances to come to a saving knowledge of him. At any point in time in your life, if you have NOT gotten right with God through his son, God’s only obligation is to pay you your wages for the sin you have committed. Everyone knows what those wages are, you’ve heard it often enough, the wages of sin is DEATH in the Lake of Fire.

BUT WAIT…

That death does not come quickly. You MUST pay the wages meaning before you die in the Lake of Fire you will suffer according to your works, your action and behavior you did while alive here on earth. Wow, some people are really evil and wicked, other people lived a rather moral, decent life BUT did not accept the call. The evil wicked person will spend more time suffering in the Lake of fire before they die then the good, moral, decent person.

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? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he comes shall find so doing. Of a truth I say to you, that he will make him ruler over all that he has. But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delays his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looks 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. And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes.” Luke 12:42-48

Yes, I know this is referring to believers, what I want you to notice is that BOTH servants were beaten, the one who knew his Master’s will and did not obey him AND the one who knew not his Master’s will and therefore failed to obey. There is no excuse for any believer to NOT know the will of their Master, it is all written in the scriptures just read it or not if you want to be beaten with stripes.

The point is, if the Master beats those who claim to know him and do not obey THEN how much more those who make no claim of knowing him at all!

Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison. Verily I say to you, You shall by no means come out of prison, until you have paid the uttermost farthing.” Matthew 5:25-26

Who is your adversary if you have not accepted God’s call to get right with him? No it’s not the devil, it is God who is your adversary…. “He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36

The wrath of God abides on the unbeliever, those who will repent and get right with him.

Who is the judge? No, it is not God, it’s his son Messiah or Christ…… “For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son: That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him. Verily, verily, I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to life. Verily, verily, I say to you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live..And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.” John 5:22-27

So here we have the son AS not only the judge but also the executioner. So now let me paraphrase that verse…. “Agree with your adversary, God, quickly, while you are in the way with him, while you are still alive and can choose; lest at any time God, your adversary, deliver you to the judge, his son, and his son the judge deliver you to the angel, his officer, and you be cast into prison, the Lake of Fire. Verily I say to you, You shall by no means come out of prison, die in that Lake of Fire, until you have paid the uttermost farthing, the total wages of your sin.” Matthew 5:25-26

That may not be a good paraphrase but you get the point.

So if you try to read the scriptures and they make no sense to you then according to scripture you are lost, and unbeliever, not saved, on the broad road that leads to destruction.

The question is DO YOU REALLY WANT OT UNDERSTAND the scripture? The price you will pay if you really want to understand the scripture is YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO OBEY THE SCRIPTURES!

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. And whosoever does not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, sits not down first, and counts the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. Or what king, going to make war against another king, sits not down first, and consults whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an ambassador, and desires conditions of peace. So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsakes not all that he has, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26-33

Count the cost, my friend, before you go asking God for wisdom to understand his word!

For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again to repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.” Hebrew 6:4-6

Afterward Jesus finds him in the temple, and said to him, Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come to you.” John 5:14

Look at that, when you are made whole by being given the understanding, that your eyes are open to the truth, the knowledge of how to be saved, better make sure you follow through or you will end up worse off then when you were just an unbeliever not knowing the truth.

Are You Under A Delusion?

After much research and careful consideration I’ve come to the conclusion that most of Christianity is under the strong delusion mentioned to happen to the last generations just before Messiah returns: “For the mystery of iniquity (lawlessness) does already work: only he who now hinders will hinder, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:7-12

Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them. Not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity (lawlessness).” Matthew 7:20-23

Here you have Jesus rejecting many from the Kingdom of God! He’s rejecting them because they are lawless, without law. Look at their response! We did many things in your name! We cast out devils in your name, In your name we prophesied. In your name we did many wonderful works, how could you not let us in?

They were sincere in what they did in his name, that is NOT the problem. They were or will be rejected because they are lawless, they DID NOT do the will of the Father! What is the will of the Father? If you love me, keep my commandments!

I know what was or will be wrong with these many who are rejected. They have done what was predicted they will do in the scripture: “For the time will come when they (the many) will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And those teachers shall turn away their ears from the truth, and those many shall be turned to believing fables as the truth.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4

What is some of those fables these many believe is the truth when in fact these fables end up barring them from the Kingdom?

We are no longer under the law” these teachers proclaim to them thereby if they believe these teachers they seal their doom. “And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given to him has written to you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest (twist), as they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.” 2 Peter 3:15-17

Twisting scripture and Paul’s writings are a specialty of these teachers. They know how to twist scripture because they know what is really in your heart, your heart is really not into obeying and serving your Lord but is inclined toward the world and the world’s practices.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

So when you say to yourself or anyone else, “God knows my heart”: Yes God does know your heart as proclaimed in the above verse of Jeremiah 17:9. It is desperately wicked!

And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5

This was the condition of man right before he destroyed them in the flood of Noah’s day.

And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.” Luke 17:26

So you see, God does indeed look at the heart as he sees a heart that is the same as those right before the flood and he had to destroy them all except righteous Noah and his family. Today when he returns he will destroy all those many with fire NOT with flood.

What did Paul mean when he wrote we are not under the law?

It’s very simple if you do not twist Paul’s writings. Paul ALWAYS used justification and being justified by the law when he wrote about being under the law. Paul was AGAINST people thinking that they could be JUSTIFIED before God by keeping the law. No one, absolutely no one can be justified before God by keeping the law!

For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before your face, which shall prepare your way before you. Verily I say to you, Among them that are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if you will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come. He that has ears to hear, let him hear.” Matthew 11:10-15

What I want you to notice is verse 13, “For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John”. That is your key to understanding “under the law” which Paul refers to.

Before Jesus came into the world everyone, absolutely everyone who wanted a relationship with God and enter the Kingdom HAD to obey the law TO BE JUSTIFIED before God! Did you get that? Before our Lord made his appearance, NO ONE could be JUSTIFIED before God WITHOUT keeping the law! Before Messiah came into the world keeping the law WAS the only way God would accept anyone.

Now, what does Matthew 11:13 say again? For all the prophets AND THE LAW prophesied UNTIL John. John the baptist was the cutoff point. When John the baptist came and preached the Kingdom a new era began. People would NO LONGER be justified or accepted into relationship with the Father by keeping the law.

But the scripture has concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up to the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.” Galatians 3:22-25

Did you notice the change when John the baptist came? “ But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up to the faith which should afterwards be revealed”

Before John the baptist justification was by law, “before faith came we were kept under the law” that is how they were JUSTIFIED!

But now there is a change since the baptist came making way the path of Messiah, that change is we are no longer JUSTIFIED by the law BUT BY FAITH in Messiah! “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster (justifier) to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster (the law to be justified).”

WE ARE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH IN MESSIAH OR CHRIST, that is the ONLY way God the Father will accept anyone into the Kingdom now, that is the only way anyone can come into a relationship with the Father, THROUGH HIS SON AND FAITH IN HIS SON.

That was and is the meaning of Matthew 11:13, “For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.”, that was the ending point of the law and the prophets as for proclaiming being justified by the law and the start of the new era of being justified by faith in Christ.

Does that mean we can go and sin to our hearts content now?

As Paul said, “God forbid! May it never be so! “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yes, we establish the law.” Roman 3:31

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Roman 6:1-2

Likewise reckon you also yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield you your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin: but yield yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness? But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness.” Roman 6:11-18

As you can see, being justified by faith in Messiah or Christ does NOT give us a license to sin because we are no longer justified by the law but by faith. If you think that way then God the Father and his son Jesus Christ see you, views you as LAWLESS, and you see how Jesus dealt with those many who came to him being without law, lawless. He barred them from entering the Kingdom!

It is very plain, we who know the truth and don’t listen to these truth twisters know that we are not under the law but under the grace of God the Father because of our faith in Christ, we also obey his commandments as he told us, if you love me keep my commandments. We keep his commandments NOT to gain his favor or be justified, we keep his commandments because we love him and want to obey and please him.

Faith in Christ gets you TO the door; for Christ is the way, the door, the strait gate BUT once you get TO the door to ENTER you MUST abide by the rules or commandments (laws) of the Kingdom. What Kingdom or Nation do you know of that has NO laws governing its subjects? None! All Kingdoms or Nations have laws (commandments) governing its subjects or there would be total anarchy, everyone doing whatever they pleased.

The Kingdom of God is no different, it has laws governing its subjects. If fact when Messiah or Christ returns and sets up God’s earthly Kingdom and rules over it it is said Messiah or Christ will rule with a rod of iron. That is an idiom meaning Messiah or Christ will be very strict in enforcing God’s Laws of the Kingdom, the Kingdom’s rules or commandments. When Messiah or Christ returns and sets up his Kingdom grace is NO MORE. God grace ends at that time and God’s laws or commandments must be obeyed or dire consequences will result for those who choose to ignore those laws or commandments. Meaning OBEY OR DIE.

Right now Messiah or Christ and his Father are calling out a people for his name, a holy people who obey and serve him NOW. When Messiah or Christ returns and sets up his Father’s earthly Kingdom those who NOW obey his commands and serve him will become rulers with Messiah or Christ and rule the nations with him and they too will rule with a rod of iron, just as Messiah or Christ.

So make no mistake, obedience IS required now and will be required during the millennial reign.

From Genesis 1:1 To Revelation 22:21 it has been and always will be about obedience and serving God, that thread of obedience and serving God runs through every page of scripture from the 1st page to the last, if you can not see that than you have not the spirit and you are none of his.

How much do you have to believe to be saved!

What do I have to believe to be saved, or how much do I have to believe to be saved?

You don’t have to believe anything to be saved just have faith in Jesus is what most of Christianity will tell you.

Is that true?

Let me tell you this: Having faith in Jesus will get you TO the door, whether the door is opened for you OR NOT depends on what YOU DO not what YOU BELIEVE!

Faith requires an action toward that in what you place your faith in.

Read Matthew 25:1-12 & Matthew 7:21-23

Here we have people at the door wanting to get in (be saved), but they are rejected, the door will NOT be opened to them, why?

If you read those verses and can not figure out why they were rejected then you need to get on your knees and ask this Jesus, the one you have faith in, to help you understand, otherwise you are doomed, my friend.

Wailing and gnashing of teeth, outer darkness ring a bell?

Can Anyone Be Saved?

Can anyone get saved?

Yes and No!

No, I’m not trying to weasel out of answering. It is more complicated than a simple yes or no answer.

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” John 3:14-21

Look at those verses. Whosoever BELIEVES. There it is! Believes is the key word.

He that believes is not condemned: but he that BELIEVES NOT is condemned already.

BELIEVES NOT! There are people, there are whosoever’s that DO NOT BELIEVE and therefore can not be saved as long as they DO NOT BELIEVE!

Why won’t they believe?

Men love darkness rather than light! Some or really most of  whosoever’s love darkness (sin, evil, wickedness) rather than light, (goodness, righteousness, holiness). They don’t want to come to God on HIS terms, they don’t want to change their life nor their lifestyle. They may or may not be good neighbor’s, good co-workers, good friends, being good does not cut it with God.

God has a definite procedure you MUST follow IF you want to be saved and come into a right relationship with him so that you do not come under his anger and wrath and when all is said and done be tossed into the Lake of Fire.

The very first step is to BELIEVE. Without that critical first step of believing all is moot.

What are we as the whosoever’s to believe?

First and foremost you MUST believe there is a God! A God, an almighty one, supreme ruler over all that whosoever’s see. Does not matter what that whosoever calls him in their ignorance of the actual gospel since they never heard it, they still must believe in a God, one supreme ruler over all creation.

But without faith it is impossible to please God: for he that comes to God must believe that God is, and that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrew 11:6

If a whosoever does not believe in a God, an almighty one, supreme ruler over all they see then it is impossible for that whosoever to be saved!

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich to all that call on him. For whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias said, Lord, who has believed our report? So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:12-17

Now I don’t know if there is any whosoever’s or a group of whosoever’s who have not heard the gospel. It is broadcast all over the world today and all that is required is a radio at minimum. But if there is a whosoever or a group of whosoever’s out there somewhere in the world that has not heard the gospel or even seen a bible, THAT still does not disqualify them! As long as they believe in a God, a one supreme all mighty ruler over all that they see they will not be barred from the Kingdom of God when Messiah comes and sits up God’s Kingdom on earth. If they survive the tribulation they WILL be allowed to enter the Kingdom AND THEN will be taught the gospel and God’s word. If they do not survive the tribulation and die before Messiah returns THEN THEY STILL will be given a chance to hear and obey the scriptures, the gospel, at the last or 2nd resurrection.

The second requirement is that a whosoever MUST REPENT!

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 4:17

He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned.” Mark 16:16

And Jesus said to him, Receive your sight: your faith has saved you.” Luke 18:42

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:9

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Act 4:12

And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do yourself no harm: for we are all here. Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they (Paul & Silas) said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved, and your house (family). And they (Paul & Silas) spoke to him (the jailer) the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his (the jailers) house. And he (the jailer) took them (Paul & Silas) the same hour of the night, and washed their (Paul & Silas) stripes (wounds); and was baptized, he and all his (his family), straightway. And when he (the jailer) had brought them (Paul & Silas) into his house, he (the jailer) set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house (family). Act 16:27-34

Now most Christians will tell a whosoever that all they have to do is believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and they will be saved and their house or family and they leave it at that. THAT IS NOT WHAT THESE VERSES SAY! Read further…

The jailer took Paul and Silas to his house and Paul & Silas explained the gospel to them, the jailer & his family, BECAUSE WE READ the jailer AND his family WAS BAPTISED! Now whether that baptism was in water or in the spirit it does not specify, it could have been BOTH. BOTH water baptism AND baptism in Holy Ghost.

The important point is that the jailer was EXPLAINED the gospel and NOT just left with “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved”! There was more to being saved then just believing on the Lord Jesus Christ because we see the jailer and his family got baptized! So Paul & Silas explained a lot more to the jailer and his family then to just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.

A whosoever must see that a whosoever is a transgressor of God’s requirements and are separated from God because whosoever’s ARE a transgressor of God’s requirements. All repent means is that a whosoever does indeed recognize that a whosoever is an enemy of God because whosoever’s have transgressed his commandments and therefore deserve the death penalty. Whosoever’s must desire to get into a right relationship with him, confess that they, a whosoever, are a sinner, a transgressor of his commandments, ask his forgiveness, and THEN determine to obey and walk in his ways, serve him and him only.

While they, the whosoever, is contemplating that they must repent, they must also recognize that there is nothing they can do to impress God, there is nothing they can do to gain God’s favor.

For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to lawlessness to lawlessness; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness to holiness. For when you were the servants of transgressing the commandments, you were free from righteousness. What fruit had you then in those things whereof you are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from transgressing his commandments, and become servants to God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of transgressing his commandments is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Roman 6:19-23

No matter how you slice it or dice it, if you continue in sin, keep practicing sin (transgressing his law, commandments) for that is what sin is defined as, per 1 John 3:4…. “Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” So if you continue to sin, keep practicing or walking in sin, after you know the truth YOU WILL NOT INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE, but be cast out of the Kingdom and into the Lake of Fire.

That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9

Now, we see another requirement. You must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ AND believe in your mind THAT God raised Jesus from the dead.

So we see that there is more to being saved than just believing on the Lord Jesus Christ.

We or any whosoever, must acknowledge that there IS a God and at least following through with….

A whosoever must see their hopeless state of being a sinner in the eyes of God, seperated from God by their sins or transgressing his law.

They must repent and ask for mercy and forgiveness from God.

They must turn from their sinful ways and walk in the newness of life.

They must be baptised into Christ, that is being baptised in the name of Messiah.

They must believe that God raised Christ from the dead.

They must endure to the end of their life or until Messiah returns whichever comes first.

But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:13

Destroy & Fulfill, Abolish & Fulfill

I have a feeling That Christians think Yahshua (Jesus) can not tell the difference between abolish and fulfill or destroy and fulfill.

Yahshua (Jesus) plainly said: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” Matthew 5:17 KJV

Yahshua said plainly: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” Matthew 5:17 NIV

According to Christians today that verse reads…”Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to destroy.” KJV

According to Christians today that verse reads… “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to abolish them.” NIV

What kind of nonsense double talk is that? That kind of thinking makes our Master sound like an idiot!
