and sisters, how gracious and thorough is our God to leave us His Word so that
we can be assured and confident in all He has done for us. Regardless of the
biblical writer, again and again the Bible teaches us in these verses: 2Ti 3:15
And that from a child thou
hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to
make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is
in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given
by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly
furnished unto all good works.
see Holy people, although many writers have laid down the scriptures, it is of
the utmost importance for all to understand, even our children, that none of it
was created, invented, or written out of the minds or thoughts of men. All scripture
came from God, written by holy men, inspired by, breathed out by, and guided by
God as they were led by and filled by the
Holy Spirit, guaranteeing its absolute truth. For this reason, no one should
ever think that they can dismiss the Bible as unimportant thinking wrongly that
it was only written by men, and therefore having no obligation to obey it.
heads of companies start their kids at the top to learn the business from the top
down. Raise your hand, holy brethren, if any of you find it shocking, stunning
that God the Father does the opposite and starts God His Son Jesus Christ to
learn His holy business from beyond the bottom to the top? I raised both of
For whosoever exalteth himself shall
be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be
exalted. I know, dearly beloveds, that there is no need to explain the lesson for
us all here.
beloveds, let us continue on in the study, with patience, as the holy family of
God, and let Him minister His word to you, me, us, so that we will gratefully receive
His spiritual food that will cause us to spiritually grow and bear much fruit
as we lovingly trust, live, and obey Him:
Steadfastness, constancy, endurance; in the NT the characteristic of a man, (includes women too), who is not swerved from his deliberate purpose and his loyalty to faith
and devoutness by even the greatest trials and sufferings; patiently, and
steadfastly; a patient, steadfast waiting for; a patient enduring, sustaining,
Heb 2:1 Therefore we ought to
give the more earnest heed to the things which we have
heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. 2 For if the
word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a
just recompence of reward; 3 How shall we escape, if we
neglect so great salvation; which at the
first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was
confirmed unto us by them that heard him; 4 God also
bearing them witness, both with
signs and wonders, and with
divers miracles, and gifts of the
Holy Ghost, according to his own will? 5 For unto the
angels hath he not put in subjection the world to
come, whereof we speak. 6 But one in a
place testified, saying, What is man, that thou
art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou
visitest him? 7 Thou madest him a
little lower than the angels; thou
crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst
set him over the works of thy hands: 8
Thou hast put all things in
subjection under his feet. For in that he
put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that
is not put under him.
But now we
see not yet all things put under him. 9
But we see Jesus, who was made a
little lower than the angels for the suffering of
death, crowned with
glory and honour; that he by the grace of
God should taste death for every man. 10
For it became him, for whom are all
things, and by whom are all things, in
bringing many sons unto glory, to make the
captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
For both he that sanctifieth and they who are
sanctified are all of one: for which cause he
is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12
Saying, I will declare thy name unto
my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing
praise unto thee. 13 And again, I will put
trust in him. And again, Behold I and the
children which God hath given me. 14
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of
flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took
part of the same; that through death he might
destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the
And deliver them who through fear of
death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he
took on him the seed of Abraham. 17 Wherefore in all
things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he
might be a merciful and faithful high priest in
things pertaining to God, to make
reconciliation for the sins of the people. 18
For in that he himself hath suffered being
tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
serola Know that you are always
in my heart and prayers, holy brethren, pray for me.

and sisters, God the Holy Spirit is a wonderful teacher. He takes us through
the same lessons repeatedly in different ways to make sure we get the message
down pat. God the Father teaches us too, much the same. Therefore, God in the
first verse below asks a question to test us to see if we have fully understood
His lessons about Jesus Christ, God His Son. Based on all the teachings God gave earlier, it
is clear that He expects all to know that there is only one correct answer. It is
vital for all to know that God neither excepts nor allows any options or
alternatives whatsoever to His infallible truth.
make this study a bit interactive here, holy brethren, feel free to leave your
answer directly in reply to God. I give my answer here: God my Father, you Absolutely
NEVER at any time in any way, shape, or manner ever told any angel to sit on your
right hand, until you make his enemies his footstool. God my Father you said
this only to God Your Son Jesus Christ, never to any angel. I also understand
dear God my Father that you are never neutral about those who hate Jesus Christ,
God Your Son. Therefore, you have explicitly declared that all, enemies of Jesus
Christ God your Son IS YOUR ENEMY TOO, praise your Holy Name!
to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine
enemies thy footstool?
the Father, dearly beloveds, at the end of this chapter, leaves all a second rhetorical question in expectation that all understand and will answer in the
affirmative that the angels are God’s alone to commanded to carry out His purposes,
and will. So no one should be trying to command the angels to do anything, to
fight for a specific cause, country, person, or thing, or to pray to or
worship, or seek to have a personal relationship with, etc.
14Are they not all ministering spirits,
sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Sun, May 22nd - 8:36AM
and sisters, God the Father continues to speak directly to God His Son Jesus
Christ and in our ears, minds, and hearts. God the Father wows us and leaves us
in mind blowing awe at His loving, glorious, dazzling, majestic and powerful
presentation of God His Son Jesus Christ.
GOD AGAIN SPEAKING DIRECTLY TO HIS SON JESUS CHRIST
Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the
heavens are the works of thine hands:
shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art
the same, and thy years shall not fail.
God the Father here affirms that God His Son Jesus is also Lord, as eternal as Himself, in placing
Jesus at the beginning with Himself using and having the power of creation, exactly
like His Father God. God the Father opens up our understanding that Jesus, God His Son, is
eternal, indestructible, and unchanging, although the world God created by Him
shall become old and unusable, at the designated time to the will of the
Father, He will do away with this present earth, that a new imperishable earth
will be created by His power.
men, dearly beloveds, who rule on earth often do it imperfectly, may be
corrupt, make missteps that don’t benefit
those being ruled. Jesus is not like
that, He is the One whom God His Father declares is the eternal perfect Ruler,
absolutely incorruptible, loving righteousness and hating iniquity and
wickedness. His septre is more than a sign, symbol, or
token. It is the
evidentiary septre of the right of rulership, authority and power. Like a Shepherd
His septre is a staff with
which He rules over and protects His people, and as
a rod of Iron with which He destroys all enemies who come against Him.
Jhn 1:1 In the beginning
was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was
in the beginning with God.
are three that bear record in heaven, the
Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the
government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The
mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of
people we have a God that desires our fellowship. He is never distant from us,
thinks about us constantly, and wants us to consciously draw near to Him at all
times. He is never impersonal with His people; He knows us all individually by name:
him the porter openeth; and the
sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his
own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how
great is the sum of them!
there might be some amongst us who have not worshipped Jesus because they did not
know that He is God the Son,
whom God the Father declares
is equal with Him and to be worshipped. Now that God the Father Himself has told all the
everlasting truth, I pray that all such will believe the testimony of God for whom it is impossible to lie, and make haste to
offer up their worship to Lord Jesus in sacrifices of praises, thanks giving and love, for He is worthy.
Mon, May 16th - 1:53PM
and sisters, what a joy it is that we should meet together once again, by the
grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Praise God, as family we are
responsible and accountable to God and one another to live in His love and
truth. Let us put off the vestiges of the old man and see it as what it is a
relic of our spiritually dead past and put on Jesus Christ the new spiritually
alive man, (this includes women too, of course}.
the scriptures we learn the traits, behaviors, practices, and character that distinguishes
the old spiritually dead man from the new, eternal, spiritually alive. God teaches
us to feed the new man but starve the old man to death-put it to death
spiritually, by not feeding it or giving in to its fleshly urgings.
beloveds, we are accountable and responsible for understanding that the old or
carnal man, who is of a raw animal nature cannot be reasoned with, only
spiritually killed. Every Christian is enabled by God to destroy the works of
the flesh in their lives. There are times when we don’t recognize our old man
or nature or need help to deal with it. Therefore,
God, and our brothers and sisters will admonish one another when it appears. With
God’s help we help one another to accomplish over coming it when the need
arises. Putting the old man to death spiritually, especially in cases of
habituation, can be uncomfortable, unpleasant because there are elements of enjoying
the forbidden pleasure, all the more reason in relentlessly, consistently letting
it go out of love for and in obedience to God. Please feel free to study the works
of the flesh or old man vs the works of the spiritual new man on your own brethren,
beseech you therefore, brethren, by the
mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a
living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which
is your reasonable service.
7And of the angels he saith, Who
maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8But unto the Son he saith, Thy
throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of
righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9Thou hast loved righteousness, and
hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed
thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
and sisters, God makes it clear we are not to traffic with the angels, be obsessed
with the angels, worship the angels, seek to contact the angels, leave all the
angels alone, including the evil ones.
know that besides God’s angels, who are spirits there are evil angels, evil spirits,
or demons, and their chief the devil is able to transform himself into an angel
of light. These demonic spirits and the devil himself seek to contact people to
give them the doctrines of devils to oppose the word of God and to deceive
people. please feel free to study on your own what the devil sows, and the forbidden
practices of witchcraft, magic, wizards, necromancy, astrology, familiar spirits, etc.,. Those
who willfully deal with the demonic realm without repentance according to
he say also unto them on the left
hand, Depart from me, ye
cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the
devil and his angels:
Christian warfare is spiritual, holy people, we know that it is not against
people, because the Christians love our human enemies, but God equips and commands the Christians to spiritually fight back against the devil and his demonic horde whenever they attack: Eph 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the
rulers of darkness of
this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places…
free to study on your own brethren Christian spiritual warfare, defensive and
offensive weapons, and God’s power in completely overcoming the enemy. This does not mean the Christian does
not have human enemies, whom we are to love, and deal with according to
scripture through earthly authorities, and are able protect ourselves and loved
ones from their destructive acts towards us whenever the need arises. Vengeance belongs to God only, He will repay.
is no need for any of us to ever envy the angels which are stronger than any
human being but understand that: Mat 22:30
For in the
resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in
marriage, but are as the angels of
God in heaven.
man beguile you of your reward in a
voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding
into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed
up by his fleshly mind…
Sat, May 14th - 5:30PM
of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a
flame of fire.
8But unto the Son he saith,
Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of
righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy
God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
and sisters, let us always be in a state of gratefulness to our great God,
whose love for His people is undying, incendiary, and eternal, who keeps us by
His almighty power, which is unbeatable, unconquerable, and undefeatable.
Christians ignorant of the gospel and its teaching might have doubt out of
ignorance but believe when they come to understand the message. I know, holy
people, that there is no need to write to you that God cannot lie, will not
ever lie, because there is no lie in Him. It is absolutely impossible for God to
lie. God is eternal and absolute truth. Therefore, when we understand the
gospel message, there is no justification in the eyes of God for anyone amongst
us to dwell in lingering doubt and/or unbelief in His Word.
angels appear in the both the Old and New Testaments. God gives us a multidimensional
look at the order of angels, solely under His command in the scriptures. They
never appear independently on their own. They can minister, comfort, fight, bring
messages from God to people. They can sing, and they can fly too.
the aforementioned verses, dearly beloveds, we understand that God does not ever
call any of the angels His Son, because none of them are His Son. Evidently all
the angels are males and again they are not to be worshipped.
who claim the Old Testament allowed worship of angels have misinterpreted scripture.
Angels do appear in the Old Testament, however, in every instance of an angel being called
Lord or God, in every case it is the preexistent Christ, for example: Gen 22:15: And the
angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of
heaven the second time, 16 And said, By myself have I
sworn, saith the LORD, for
because thou hast done this thing, and hast
not withheld thy son, thine only son: 17 That in
blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will
multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the
sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy
seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; 18 And in thy
seed shall all the nations of the earth be
blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
bottom line, Holy people, is that God has not changed His command that God alone
is to be worshipped. This includes the worship of God the Holy Spirit and God the
Son Jesus Christ. As God told everyone continuously: Exo 34:14 For
thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose
name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
people you know why “no other god” in this verse of Exo 34:14 is not capitalized.

STUDIES IN HEBREWS
Brothers and sisters, thanks and praise the Lord Jesus our Saviour
and Lord for His continual oversight of the church His people, His gracious love,
mercy and truth. God established the family on earth, to give us an understanding
of His forever holy family. Some of us have wonderful families, and some of us have
families that are in name only, and some are orphans with little or no
knowledge of the family we were born into.
Regardless of the kind of natural family we came from, God’s holy family
is the only one that is eternal. God is so generous, loving and kind that He greatly desires and commands
all to be a part of His family, and gives His children the right, the privilege,
the command to bring the gospel message of His Son Jesus Christ to all that we
can, so that they can be a part of our forever holy family too.
Let us keep in mind, holy brethren, that we go through life on
earth as God’s family, and He is always teaching us about our Saviour, our
Brother, our Friend, His Son Jesus Christ, through whom God adopted us, so we
can know all about Him and love Him as our Father loves Him.
HEBREWS 1: 5For
unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I
begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a
6And again, when he bringeth in the
firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
We find God our Father comparing and contrasting the angels to Lord
Jesus and find that He is superior to the angels in every way as a Son. In
bringing the first begotten into the world, God is absolutely not saying Jesus is
a created being such as the angels, but that God sent and revealed His
eternally preexistent Son to the world in a physical body, born of a virgin,
being both God and man, not half and half but as a whole combined.
God absolutely forbids anyone to worship angels it is blasphemy. We
are not to worship the angels, pray to the angels, pray God to send the angels,
seek to invite the angels to visit or attend to any matter or thing or in any
cause. Leave the angels alone, they are busy worshipping God and doing His will
as we also should do. God alone
has the authority to direct His servants the angels as He wills: Heb 13:2
Be not forgetful to
entertain strangers: for thereby some have
entertained angels unawares.
from the book of Revelation God will employ His angels who will be seen on
earth at that time for His purposes they are not the servants of nor under the
command of men.
Therefore, while the aforementioned verse encourages Christian hospitality,
it does not in any way or manner whatsoever make a doctrine for the church to
practice seeking personal contact with the angels for any purpose, so all will still be unaware even if one does entertains an angel.
Therefore, holy people, we know that there is absolutely no need
for any Christian to invite angels into their homes, set an extra plate at the
dinner table in case an angel shows up, looking for strangers to invite home in
case one of them might be an angel, wearing an angel pin for luck, good
fortune, protection, or any purpose. In fact, God forbids the making of any
Some may say it shouldn’t matter as long as we are worshipping Jesus
I am the
LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to
another, neither my praise to graven images.
God has set our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ our Brother, the First
Born, to be the sole Mediator between God and Man. God commands, it is not optional,
that our worship is to be directed to Jesus through whom we have access
directly to worship God and the Holy Spirit as well:
By whom also we have access by
faith into this grace wherein we stand and rejoice in hope of
the glory of God.
Eph 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the
Eph 3:12 In whom we
have boldness and access with confidence by the
faith of him.
Jhn 10:1-13; Jhn 14:6.
those who have come through faith in Jesus Christ have any access to God the
Father, who absolutely accepts no worship of Himself from any who reject His Son:
Whosoever denieth the Son, the same
hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of
God hath not life.
brothers, and sisters, claiming salvation through faith in angels, men, rituals,
denominations, institutions, organizations, affiliations with man- made
associations, or extrabiblical doctrines or any combinations thereof, or mixed
in with the gospel, is still dead in their sins.
this is true of anyone one reading this, I pray they will repent, and believe
on the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God who died on the cross and rose again
to atone for all sins and forgives all sins of all who trust and believe in
and sisters, again, God makes it absolutely clear the worship of angels is forbidden
and blasphemy. Our worship to God is centered on, in by, to and through the
sole Saviour of all who believe, Jesus Christ.

STUDIES IN HEBREWS
Dearly beloved brothers and sisters, let us thank God our Father in
His great mercy for giving us His beloved Son Jesus Christ, and making us a
part of his forever family so that we can have this blessed fellowship together
with Him and one another now and forever. Holy people the times are dangerous
and likely to continue. However, we remain
steadfast and stable in this unstable world by the power of our God.
I plead with you brethren, that we should never stay far away from
the Lord at any time but come near boldly to Jesus at all times. Lord Jesus, we
come to you as your dear children. Father we come consciously, full of
gratitude as your priests through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus Lord, we come to
you washed, and cleansed forever from our sins in your sinless precious blood. Holy
Spirit we come to freely eat to the full the true Manna from heaven, the only
begotten Son of God Jesus Christ, the Word of God, both Saviour and Lord. Father,
we thank and praise you knowing absolutely that your Son Jesus Christ will
raise us up together at the last day, and we shall be satisfied when we awake
with His likeness to your good pleasure and will.
Brothers and sisters, we continue this intensely intimate, multidimensional
portrayal of the Christ, straight from the heart of God our Father, who lovingly
invites us, His family, to behold, understand and know His Son and also to love
and adore Him even as the Father.
Hebrews 1: 3Who
being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his
person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our
sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he
hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Brothers and sisters, God the Father frankly declares right early
in Hebrews that His Son Jesus Christ-looks exactly like Him in heart, in mind, in
power, in character, in nature, in every way; and the whole creation is upheld by
the word of the power of Jesus Christ, His Son.
Now Lord Jesus in His perfected physical body is sitting on His throne
and attending to His Office as High Priest in the true sanctuary in heaven. Because
He is 100 %God and 100% man combined and Head of the church He indwells His
people with God and the Holy Spirit and oversees the work of His church on earth
and protects it by His power. Of course, God and the Holy Spirit are right
there with Him doing their work in the believers on earth as well. We understand then, brethren that Jesus is God
the Son and Just like His Father and the Holy Spirit Jesus is equal in every
way and also omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.
He is declared superior to the angels, He is not a created being as
the angels, He is the only Son to whom the inheritance belongs, and He shares it
with those who believe in Him. Dearly beloveds we must comprehend that Jesus did
not need any help to save us, He accomplished this by Himself exactly as God our
The Bible, dearly
beloveds, absolutely upholds faith in Jesus Christ, God’s sole appointed
Saviour, as the sole absolute, explicit, exclusive, exhaustive, eternal means
of salvation, never
water baptism which is an ordinance of the church for all believers but never ever a means of
What should anyone
do who in error thought they were saved through water baptism? First of all
repent of unbelief and come believing the truth: Jhn 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no
man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Go immediately to believe and obey Ro 10: 6-11.
Again, brothers and sisters, we know absolutely that God is not
drawing men to be saved by water baptism, or any other means except through
faith in His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. Again, God is drawing all men to
His Son whom He has appointed the sole Saviour for all who believe in Him.
Let us look at this somewhat
more, brethren, He that is baptized shall be saved; but he that
believeth not shall be damned. (Note God’s penalty for impenitent
unbelief). Again and again and again, we must always be extremely careful to
understand that the baptism Lord Jesus declares here is the baptism of the Holy Spirit not water baptism,
further confirmed in the following verses: .
Mar 1:8 I indeed
have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy
Act 1:5 For John truly baptized with water;
but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. See: Act 2:2-4.
There are too many infallible proofs in scripture than I post here
that proves that there is no salvation by any means other than faith in Jesus
Christ. What this means without any doubt is that those who either add or take
away from this final, finished, explicit, exclusive, and eternal truth
unrepentantly remain unsaved and still spiritually dead in their sins.
I want to put this here as a bit of a foot note, beloveds, that
during the apostolic age some believers did not receive the Holy Spirit immediately
when they believed. However, the Bible explains these few and rare instances, which
were attended to by the apostles no one else. The apostolic age is closed, and
the gospel message is present in its entirety, so we know from scripture that every
believer receives the Holy Spirit instantly upon believing and trusting in Jesus
Christ as their saviour and Lord. There is no need of any person performing any
rituals or activities of any kind in order to receive the Holy Spirit and the
examples of the apostles was never and is never to be replicated in the church.
Feel free, dearly beloveds, to study on your own the qualifications of the
apostles and you will understand how we know that the age of the apostolic ministry has been closed by God for good, for we all stand upon the foundation that they and the prophets laid, Jesus Christ the chief corner stone.

STUDIES IN HEBREWS
Dearly beloved brothers and sisters as we
continue on in this study as the family of God, again there is nothing here for the intellectual or those looking for a scholarly work. However, by the grace
of God we continue being led by Christ, in the will of God, and the Holy Ghost
our Teacher who will minister to us as a whole as well as to each of us individually
beyond any study as He wills for our edification in understanding our great
salvation in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. All scripture is God breathed
so there will be nothing here on who wrote it and to whom and what year, none
of it is relevant to us as all scripture is God breathed, 2 Tim 3: 16-17.
Let us walk with Jesus in His Word, holy
brethren. There might be points in any study where the presence of the Lord
might manifest heavily, then we may strongly desire to worship, to pray or
praise Lord Jesus, or give thanks, or sing a song to God. There might be times
that God our Father calls us to take time to reflect or work at applying
something He revealed to us personally, at times the Holy Spirit will take us
to other books of scripture relevant to this study. One thing is absolutely certain,
brethren, in the spiritual nutrient rich Bible, God will nurture, feed us fully,
richly, deeply, in His Word by His Word with the Holy Spirit.
The Supremacy of the Son
1God, who at sundry times and
in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2Hath in these last days spoken
unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
by whom also he made the worlds…
We must look more closely regarding prophets. The office of the prophet is fulfilled, and
completed in the atoning work of Lord Jesus Christ, Mat 5:17 - Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the
prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
None of the prophets were able to speak
from the advantage of being always and eternally joined with God the
Father. This is why there is no further
need for prophets, Jesus Christ, is the perfect and only Prophet for all
eternity, who has the entire message and testimony of the gospel message without
error from beginning to ending.
The gift of prophesy, however, is the
ability given at the discretion of the Holy Spirit to members in the body, not
as an office, but as a tool for certain purposes to the body: to teach,
reprove, admonish, comfort others.The gift of prophesy is under
the control of the Holy Spirit and to be used for the church, and must be
tested by the church before it is received as valid.
Having then gifts differing according to
the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let
us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
1Co 14:31 For ye
may all prophesy one by one, that all may
learn, and all may be comforted. There is more on this in
general and minute detail, please free to study this more on your own.
As a reminder, dearly beloveds, God today
is not calling men to those falsely claiming to hold the office of the prophet,
instead God is warning men against them.
Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which
come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall
rise, and shall deceive many.
God leaves us breathless and filled with
awe and admiration when He exalts His Son Jesus’ eternal existence and power
equal to His own,
that God created the worlds by Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit testifies that Jesus,
just like His Father God always existed. Jesus was with God from before the
beginning: Gen 1:1In the
beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Jesus is the Rock in the wilderness: Exo 17:6; 1Co 10:4.
Jesus is the angel of the Lord that spoke
to Moses out of the burning bush, Exo 3:2-5.
Jesus is the Captain of the hosts of the
Lord: Jos 5:13-15.
is the Rock of Sion, Rom 9:33.
Jesus is the Author of eternal salvation Heb 5:9 and
finisher of our faith, Heb 12:2.
We find Jesus, God the Son at the
beginning throughout scripture and praise His holy Name we find Him at the end
