          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.


          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    CHAPTER 11 VS 32 -34


    Warnings against False Teachers:

    Dearly beloveds, Put on the whole armour of God who commands all to start with the offensive/defensive helmet of Salvation by believing, correctly interpreting, living the entire absolutes of scripture. The scriptures are absolute, inerrant, eternal, explicit, exclusive, exhaustive, final, finished, complete.


    Heb 5:9And being made perfect, he became the author of ETERNAL salvation unto them that obey him;



    False teachers leave the word ETERNAL out when they refer to salvation so that they can pervert it to lie and say it is just a conditional salvation that can be lost.





    Phl 2:6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:


    Anyone who denies the equality of Christ in the trinity is a false teacher.


    These are false direct evil attacks on eternal truth Lord Jesus Christ, His everlasting New Covenant and His perfect eternal atonement for the sins of all who believe in Him.

    The false teacher to deceive anyone to falsely believe that eternal salvation is conditional will deny absolutes of scripture such as forever, everlasting, eternal, always, that which God, who cannot lie, employs to declare is permanent, irrevocable. 


    Brothers and sisters, let us the holy family of the royal  priesthood and household of God our Father, with humble and grateful hearts give offerings of love, thanks, and blessings to Him and to Our Holy Spirit, and to our Saviour/High Priest, Prince of Peace, God  the Son of God Jesus Christ, whom our Father has set before us as the supreme example of faith and obedience to the will of God, who before He ever received a crown and a throne, humbled Himself before His Father as a servant washing the feet of His disciples, and voluntarily choosing to wear a crown of thorns unto death on the cross and made peace with God the Father for us; therefore God our Father has highly exalted Him and given Him an eternal throne and crown of gold so that the Name of Jesus Christ is exalted above every name in heaven and in earth:  Rom 14:11; Eph 3:14;

    Phl 2:10; Rev 5:13,


    Rev 3:11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.  1Co 9:25; 2Ti 4:8Jas 1:12; 1Pe 5:4;  Rev 2:10; Rev 4:10;  Rev 19:12 .



    To Take: to take hold of; take, seize; to lay hands on one in order to get him into one's power.


    The wonderful thing, brothers and sisters is that any and all believers can be taught scripture and then help other believers learn it and also share it with a lost and dying world.


    Saints (G40 hagios), love, blessings and peace to you in the Name of Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for fellowshipping with me in the scriptures, where we can always look to Jesus for our spiritual food and be strengthened thereby.


    For some this might be a difficult part of the study, where the apostle Paul presents the truth that suffering/persecution is normative for the believer in this present evil world. In other books he tells us of his own sufferings/persecutions.

    However, here he gives a panoramic view of believers' sufferings/persecutions from the very beginning of man’s creation and that it will continue until the return of our Lord, who empowers us by faith to have the victory over it all.  Let us keep focused on the eternal truth that without faith which works by love, none of our works are accepted and we can never please God.


    Heb 11:32 

    And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and

     of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: 

    Heb11:33Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,  

    Heb 11:34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

    In the above chapters, God does not present all of these men as flawless in character. While there are many studies on many of them, let us focus on Jephthae, called a bastard who suffered persecution and rejection by his family and Israel from infancy because he was born to a harlot and a “strange woman”, although his father was the family head of the Gileadites.


    Gilead a married man without kids at the time, took a trip out of town and had intimacy with a woman and returned back home. Nine months later the woman sent word that she had born a son. Gilead brought his son back, on the eighth day, had him circumcised and raised him as a Hebrew and first- born son.


    Gilead was right in that the Gileadites themselves were descendants of the mixed marriage of Joseph whose Egyptian wife was the the daughter of a pagan priest:  Solomon and other kings also had many children from mixed marriages and strange women:1Ki 11:1.

    Nevertheless, we know from biblical genealogy inheritance/ethnicity is through the males, regardless of who the mother was. None of the males from such unions were ever branded as bastards. Women inherited in cases where only females were born to a man.  

     Therefore, Jephthah, so spelled in the O.T., was wrongfully branded as a bastard. No sooner had the father died, the stepmom and his half siblings cast Jephthah out and he fled in fear with no food and just the clothes on his back: Jdg 11:2. Satan is not mentioned in this story, this is about human family wickedness towards a child.


    Think about the years of soul crushing disrespect and abuse he suffered, the trauma, the loss of father, total rejection by the stepmom, siblings, Gileadites and the elders of Israel, who did nothing to defend him. They hoped he would die. Did Jephthah feel sad, angered, a helpless victim, defeated, fearful, hopeless? Did he nurse terrible memories of maltreatment at the hands of his stepmom and siblings. Was there a growing desire or rage to avenge the evil his family had done to him?

    One might think, brethren, what is this horrible story of child abuse and endangerment doing amongst the heroes of faith?

    One might think that the poor wife had every right to be upset, as she most certainly would never have thought that her first child would be from the spouse’s union from another woman, whom she would be forced to raise. How the adults saw this most certainly influenced the siblings in a negative way also.  Of course, there is no justification  for ever mistreating a child who cannot be held responsible for the deeds of the parents.

    Yet, this is also a very powerful story of faith and Jephthah is most certainly well qualified to be among the heroes of faith.

    CHAPTER 11 VS 31


    Warnings against False Teachers:


    Heb 5:9And being made perfect, he became the author of ETERNAL salvation unto them that obey him;



    False teachers leave the word ETERNAL out when they refer to salvation so that they can pervert it to lie and say it is just a conditional salvation that can be lost.





    Phl 2:6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:


    These are false direct evil attacks on eternal truth Lord Jesus Christ, His everlasting New Covenant and His perfect eternal atonement for the sins of all who believe in Him.

    The false teacher to deceive anyone to falsely believe that eternal salvation is conditional will deny absolutes of scripture such as forever, everlasting, eternal, always, that which God, who cannot lie, employs to declare is permanent, irrevocable. 



    Brothers and sisters, thanks, blessings, honor, glory, and praise to Lord Jesus Christ, who has washed us in His own blood, cleansed us forever from all sins, and made us fit to be called the children of God forever.


    Holy people, Lord Jesus, our perfect Saviour, High Priest, Mediator, continually bless you with all spiritual blessings in Him, even according to His word and will, that you will and can walk in the newness of life that that He has given abundantly to all who have been made eternally new creatures in Him.

    Brothers and sisters, as we continue with the study, I thank you for your patience in laboring in it with me. Some obvious eternal truths God teaches us is that we need to be taught the word of God it is not automatically known. After we are taught it God commands that we study/retain it, live it, and share it among ourselves to aid others in understanding it, as well as with the world so that ALL who believe will be saved.


    Most certainly Paul the apostle found that these Hebrews, in ignorance had no teachers- zero teachers and didn’t even know that was not a good thing. All their problems evolved from devolving from scripture in ignorance.


    From this we know that few or no teachers in an established group of believers is very serious and the unmistakable sign of neglect of scripture through ignorance, although a lack of teachers can also be due to a suppression of the gospel by some for gain or some other ungodly purpose.


    God, through Paul declares that none of our knowledge, or works has any value with God without faith. Faith works and is empowered by love, so if we do not have love we are still nothing in the eyes of God because faith works and is empowered by love: Heb 11:6; 1Co 13; Gal 5:6.


    Paul wants them to know that tribulation is normative in the lives of the people of God. We know from Lord Jesus Himself: Jhn 16:33

    These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


    Feel free to study tribulation further on your own. However, we know, dearly beloveds, that Lord Jesus sets the standard for what our attitude must be in all of it.  For some persecution is not a comfortable topic, and some hope that they will never have to experience any of it. Nevertheless, all believers will experience it to some degree in their lives. We never have to be fearful in either of these experiences. The same faith that believers had throughout the ages is the same faith that will please God and cause us also in this present evil earth to remain steadfast in His power. It is a grave mistake to presume that there is no persecution of Christians in the United States of America seeing some believers have been murdered in churches, in schools, and on the streets, the Bible banned from schools, the right to preach the gospel in some public places, and public opposition to the inerrant truth of scripture in the mass media, universities, along with the rise of apostate churches, and individual apostates.


    Heb 11:31By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

    Jos 6:17; Jos 6:25;  Jas 2:25,


    Some might say what has a harlot to do with faith, or even to be mentioned among the many mighty spiritual warriors of faith? What is God teaching us?   


    Certainly prostitution was greatly frowned upon by the Hebrews, and forbidden by God. However, God is no respecter of persons, nor does He judge based on outer appearances, but looks on the heart.

    Jesus in His earthly ministry declared to the ruling religious leaders: Mt. 21:31… That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. 32For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.


    There doesn’t seem to be many bible studies on Rahab the harlot, although she obviously did not continue to be a harlot. Paul in another book reminds us all: 1Co 6:10

    Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    1Co 6:11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.


    Dearly beloveds, God does not evaluate our faith based on what we have been, done, how rich, how poor, genetics, education, or lack of, but that we believe in His Son- what He has done for us, who He has made us in Him, and do His will.

    Act 10:35

    But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

    Feareth: to reverence, venerate, to treat with deference or reverential obedience.


    Accepted: approved, acceptable.


    These believers out of faith-trust in God above all were able to patiently face situations, circumstances and conditions that would have been impossible for anyone to face through mere human strength alone: Rom 8:37.

    Love and truth forever, serola

    CHAPTER 11 VS 29-30


    Warnings against False Teachers:


    Heb 5:9And being made perfect, he became the author of ETERNAL salvation unto them that obey him;



    False teachers leave the word ETERNAL out when they refer to salvation so that they can pervert it to lie and say it is just a conditional salvation that can be lost.



     Phl 2:6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:


    These are false direct evil attacks on eternal truth Lord Jesus Christ, His everlasting New Covenant and His perfect eternal atonement for the sins of all who believe in Him.

    The false teacher will deny absolutes of scripture such as forever, everlasting, eternal, always, that which God employs to declare is permanent, irrevocable.


    2Jo 1:9

    Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

    10If thereome any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 

    11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.


    Mat 12:30

    He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad


    Dearly beloveds, this is why God wants all of His people to study, grow up and know the Word of God for themselves rather than to remain perpetual dependent students where they can be open to deception/lies of wicked and evil persons who desire to turn them away from the truth of scriptures.


    Brothers and sisters, we study, believe and do the word of God as a way of life to please God, and we also prevent false teachers from deceiving or tricking us to falsely believe that New Covenant salvation or forgiveness is temporary and can be lost as it was under the Law of Moses, instead of what it is ETERNAL SALVATION. permanent and can never be lost.

    1Ti 4:1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;


     2Pe 2:1But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.



    Eph 4:14That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

    Eph 4:15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:


    Grow up: 2Ti 3:16-17;  2Pe 3:18; Col 1:28;  Jas 3:2; Mat 5:48

    “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

    Perfect: brought to its end, finished; wanting nothing necessary to completeness; perfect; full grown, adult, of full age, mature.


    1Co 13:11When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.


    Brothers and sisters, thank God our Father for His great eternal love and truth towards His people. His eyes never close in sleep. He is continually watching over His people. Thank God the Son of God Jesus Christ, the Word of God our Saviour, and great Shepherd of the flock for His great eternal love, truth, and salvation, through whom we have been made joint heirs with Him in the kingdom of God. Thank God our Holy Spirit for His great eternal love, and truth, who is the witness before the throne of God that all who believe in the Son, belong to Him.


    We know that God is love:  1Jo 4:7

    Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

    The Word of God is eternal, inerrant, explicit, exclusive,  exhaustive, and absolute authority in clearly declaring that our NEW SPIRITUAL BIRTH is evidenced in our love for God and one another.  No love=no life. We love God because He first loved us and gave His Son Jesus Christ for us.

    Now, and in the Lord’s earthly ministry, He clearly expected His people to love Him back even as He loved them. There is no cherry picking about the kind of love God gives and also expects BACK freely from His people:  Mar 12:30; 1Jo 4:19.      


    Holy people, we cannot fail to notice our Lord’s displeasure with His church in Ephesus:  Rev 2:4Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Jhn 14:24; Mat 10:37-38.

    Therefore, Jesus commands them: Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.


    Dearly beloveds, the mature Christian knows why Jesus does not tell His people to seek or beg Him to forgive them over and over again after salvation as under the Law. But for any that do not know and are still wondering, it is because the New Covenant is a blood covenant: Luk 22:20; 1Co 11:25; Heb 10:17.  

    Under it only the sinless body and blood of Jesus Christ can gain eternal salvation-forgiveness from God, for all that believe in His Son Jesus Christ, after which all of our sins past, present and future are taken away by HIm forever: Heb 5:9And being made perfect, he became the author of ETERNAL salvation unto all them that obey him;


    See Jude 1: 24.

    Just as Jesus commands His church in Ephesus, He commands all of His people to repent from doing our own will instead of His;  because we have received the power through the Holy Spirit to choose to obey God and repent-turn from doing our own wills to doing the only will that matters which is God’s proof positive that we belong to God,  are of His spirit and that we truly love Him:  Jhn 14:21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. Conversely: Jhn 14:24.


    Christians are spiritual people; we need the spiritual food of the Word to grow us to maturity over time and be spiritually healthy.


    Brothers and sisters, love, blessings, and power for living the abundant life in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ- be yours always. As we continue on with the study, we know that suffering is something that some Christians might not see much if any benefit/value in or as a good thing.


    Certainly, the secular world regards suffering /persecution as unwelcome, victimization and/or misfortune. Even among some Christians suffering might be seen as misfortune, punishment, or even a generational curse that must be broken, although the Bible clearly teaches that Lord Jesus Christ took our curse away in His atonement: Gal 3:13.


    Paul the apostle, found that these Hebrew believers were tired of suffering/persecution, and wanted their reward from God without any further delay. It didn’t help that they had ceased to study/retain scripture and thus had spiritually declined/spiraled downward to operating by their personal opinions.


    Now we find Paul patiently, but rigorously, meticulously aiding these believers to relearn scripture, to comprehend that they and us too are commanded by God to filter our understanding of both the natural world and the spiritual world reliably through the inerrant absolute Word, of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, not our personal opinions or the secular world’s perspective, all the while aligning our will with God’s WILL TO BECOME MATURE believers GROWING UP IN Christ.


    It is error to call faith “blind faith”, because through God’s word we see clearly through God’s eyes to attain the vision of hindsight, insight and foresight into the eternal truth and power of God.


    Dearly beloveds, it's obvious that these Hebrew believers were highly receptive to Paul’s leading them back to the Word of God, specificallythe New Covenant  of Jesus Christ. Paul helps these believers to understand that suffering/persecution for righteousness is not a unique experience or only for certain groups of believers. He takes them through a long list of believers who overcame and were found faithful despite fiery trials.


    We know and believe without a doubt that no Christian is abandoned by God or ever left alone, whether in suffering/persecution or not, for it is God who bears us all up in our trials and sufferings. Suffering/persecution for righteousness’ sake is not a curse, nor a judgment from God on any believer.


    Suffering/persecution has a purpose, suffering/persecution is unavoidable. It is improper for any of us to teach Christians that they will never suffer/ or be persecuted on this present evil earth. 


    God our Father tested His own and only biological Son Jesus Christ, (Heb 4:15),  and also allows the faith of all claiming to be believers to be tested, tried and proven as to its genuineness or lack thereof through suffering/persecution. The benefits of suffering/persecution (for righteousness’) is that we are strengthened, gain patience, grow to maturity, able to help others as we have been helped, and later everlasting rewards in the world to come:


    Phl 2:13For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

     1Th 5:18In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

     2Ti 3:12Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

    See  2Th 1 purpose of; avenger of those persecuted; 1Pe 4:12-19.



    Paul, James, and Peter weigh in on suffering/persecution: 2Ti 2:12; Jas 1:2-9; 1Pe 5: 6-10.

    Let us, holy people, retain our focus with the truth that suffering/persecution for righteousness’ sake is normative for the Christian. It is the testing of our faith that God allows, which proves whether we are authentic Christians or not. Without faith which works by and is empowered by love for God above all, none of our knowledge or works have any value, is meaningless to God and can never please nor be accepted by Him in any way or manner whatsoever:  Heb 11:6.



    Heb 11:29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. 

    Under horrific circumstances the nation was tested to the core, spiritually and physically. They overcame their own fear to trust in God and walked through the Red sea on dry land.

    Dearly beloved, Israel had no fighting army, at this time they were newly escaped slaves. Yet, their passing through the Red sea was nevertheless, the last episode in an epic, open for all to see, spiritual battle between God vs Pharaoh an evil man who trafficked with demonic forces backed by the devil himself: 1Co 10:20. Those idols and so- called gods of Egypt along with the magicians (sorcerers or male witches) had devils operating behind and through them.

    Some might say that since God hardened Pharaoh’s heart how can God hold him guilty?


    Pharaoh refused to humble himself before the Lord, instead he, filled with pride, had said to God: Exo 5:2And Pharaoh said, Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go. Pharaoh hardened his own heart: Exo 8:32.


    Hardening means God allowed this evil man to be given over to his already reprobate mind to ripen to the fullest of his evil hatred of God and His people, to make an example of him to the Egyptians and show Israel the unlimited power of God The Deliverer to defend His people against all comers.


    This Pharaoh that God drowned in the Red sea with his army is not that Pharaoh whose daughter took Moses to be her son. Her father Pharaoh- also the Pharaoh’s were known as Kings of Egypt died along with the other men wanting to kill Moses, some years after Moses had fled out of Egypt: Exo 2:23.


    This new Pharaoh’s magicians had failed to defeat the powers of God, so at the last Pharaoh presumed he could defeat God with all of his physical might and recapture the Hebrew slaves. The Egyptian powers likely aided by demonic partnership that had overcome the nations and brought many into bondage would not and could not have any effect on God Almighty, who is indestructible, invincible, King of kings and Lord of lords, who always wins, whom no foe whether human or devil can ever defeat.


    God, besides killing all the first born of Egypt including Pharaoh’s son had left the nation of Egypt a total wreck. God the Destroyer, left Egypt entirely trashed, killing the cattle and destroying the land too. 


    Pharaoh fully revealing his true nature that of a ravaging evil beast came into the Red sea filled with savage hatred and the intense desire to destroy God’s people and was met with more than his match in God and paid for it with his life along with his entire army.

    When the Nation looked back, they glorified their God the Deliverer seeing that He had utterly destroyed their enemy and saved them with a mighty hand. The bodies of the Egyptians washed ashore lying dead on the shore of the Red sea left a terrifying message from God the Destroyer to Egypt His enemy and all enemies-God is unstoppable in vengeance, and there is no rescue for the wicked from His mighty hand.


    SPIRITUAL WARFARE: God rips  the covers off of the works of darkness to expose this coalition of the Evil Pharaohs with the kingdom of the devil. The expected method of operations of the devil: Kill, steal, and destroy, fit perfectly with the plans of the ruling evil heads of Egypt.

    Pharaoh-steal the labor of the people by force, kill all the new born males to preserve his kingdom from potential inside threat, destroy them from ever becoming a kingdom once and for all time.

    The devil: steal the freedom of the nation to go forward. The devil who is not omniscient didn't know which child would be the deliverer therefore his plan was to kill all the new born Hebrew males, eliminate the future deliverer,  to ascend the satanic kingdom  and destroy the kingdom of God from ever coming into being forever through the Messiah that was to arise out of the nation of Israel.

    We comprehend, dearly beloveds, that all the suffering/persecution that the nation endured was not random or unintentional, but planned, by the devil in partnership with evil men, insidious and ultimately meant to be deadly. The nation would surely have perished, but for the hand of God Almighty. That same God Almighty is still preserving His church now and forever. God always wins.


     Heb. 11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho down after they were compassed about seven days.

    The people of God in obedience and faith, led by their priests without any kind of weapons destroyed the walls of Jericho by the power of God, which fell down flat before them enabling their army to enter the city and take it. There are some battles that can only be won through the power of God working directly and even through His faithful people, according to His Sovereign Will.

    CHAPTER 11 VS 27-28


    Thanks, love, blessings, praise, honor and glory to God our Father, to our God the Son of God Jesus Christ, and to our God the Holy Spirit, who has blessed us with eternal salvation and every spiritual blessing, grace, peace, hope, rest and eternal life.

    Brothers and sisters, love, blessings, and peace to you. It is good to be back with you all again, you were sorely missed and longed for. Our Father, the God of all peace and comfort greatly bless and keep you in His great love and power.

     There are no words to describe the many bizarre occurrences that have happened in my life as I began and as we move towards the end of this study.


    The strangest of them all was at the airport, after I had been thoroughly screened and was walking away, one of the agents suddenly claimed in great fear that I had a knife in my hand and to see sharp blades protruding from the heels of my shoes. I was suddenly surrounded by agents demanding that I drop the knife and get out of my shoes.


    I obeyed quickly getting out of my shoes. The agents grabbed my hands looking closely within inches of them and feeling my hands to see if somehow the knife that had disappeared I had somehow managed to hide it inside the skin of my hands. I was also searched from head to toe a good while, the accusing agent stating again and again that I had a knife and blades protruding from the heels of my shoes.


    Finding nothing they let me go. The agent that had falsely accused me was very apologetic, but still claimed to have seen the knife and blades in the heels of my shoes, and never had any incident of this nature before, and could not explain any of it. Her colleagues were sorely displeased with the agent.


    I told the agent not to worry about it. Although I had been surrounded by agents after she alerted them, I was grateful she had been frozen in fear, rather than to have reacted by tackling me and throwing me to the floor, therefore I escaped possible injury.


    God always tells us the absolute truth, because He is the only source of absolute truth. His word correctly interpreted and lived publicly and privately is our sole road map in this world and in the world to come, regardless of what happens to us on this present evil earth.  


    Brothers and sisters let’s go on with continued patience to recall how Paul the apostle compares and contrasts the Old with the New Covenants showing in every case that the superiority of the New Covenant or New Testament is above the Old Covenant, to the extent that the Old is no longer needed by God nor required any more under the New. Furthermore, all of our knowledge is worthless to God without faith in Him, which works and is empowered by love of Him beyond all that we have.


    As mentioned here many times, dearly beloveds, although there are multitudes of mature believers fully versed in the New Covenant and the scriptures as a whole, let us not be surprised or angry when we find some Christians who have never heard of the New Covenant, or do not understand what it is, or only know what it is partially. There are some congregations in which it is never even mentioned.


    God commands that we must teach it. It is not learned automatically. No understanding, partial or faulty understanding of the New Covenant leads to faulty conclusions, with serious, sometimes calamitous tragic consequences.


    Throughout scripture we find the apostles/disciples preaching the gospel to the lost and also correcting and teaching one another as well as all believers in the word of God:  Act 18:26;  Act 21:25; Gal 2:14.


    Heb 11:27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.


    God gives us no record of how Pharaoh dealt with his daughter who had duped him and raised up a Hebrew slave secretly under his nose, whom he likely grew to admire and may have had great plans for, but now he just saw Moses as an enemy, for he had killed an Egyptian to protect a Hebrew slave.


    Having been raised in Pharaoh’s house, Moses would surely have witnessed and known of the savage authority and cruelty with which Pharaoh dealt with his enemies.


    Yet, Moses did not fear the powerful Pharaoh who could put people to death for no more reason than his waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Moses identified with the people of God and could see God and His Christ invisible, made visible with the eyes of faith, which gave him courage and strength out of an abundance of caution, not fear, to escape from Egypt, and to bear all his trials in the strength of the Lord whom He loved beyond all that he had.


    One ponders if some might have said to Moses that he could do so much good, or better for the Hebrew nation by working within the system than outside of it. However, the God of all wisdom did not see it that way, and neither did Moses.


    Heb 11: 28Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.


    One of the most holy memorial ceremonies in scripture is Moses’ keeping of the Lord’s passover and the sprinkling of blood. It would have been a very profound and moving experience for the people of God: see Exo 12.


    Moses and Israel had the record from God of how He destroyed the first world that was, and the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah but delivered Just Lot and those with him: Gen 19:24; Gen 19:15. Now the Lord was coming to Egypt to deliver His people, therefore Moses kept the Lord’s passover and sprinkled the blood on the lintels and the two side posts of the doors of the Hebrews’ houses, knowing that God would keep them safe for He had promised:

    Exo 12:13And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

     Moses saw the future Christ, the great Passover Lamb to come whose blood would wash away the sins of both Jew and gentiles alike forever of all who believe in Him: Luk 22:20; Jhn 6:53;  Eph 1:7;  Heb 9:12; Col 1:14.


    We know holy brethren that God has given us His passover Lamb Jesus Christ whose sinless body and blood cleanses every believer forever from all sins and has forever turned away the wrath of God from all who believe. Through Christ all believers are delivered from the kingdom of darkness, the bondage of sin, and made NEW CREATIONS in Him


    Jesus declared: Mat 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.


    Heb 10:18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. (See forgiveness).


    No more offerings are necessary: no further doing the act of offering, bringing a sacrifice, whether bloody or not, no expiatory offering of any kind, or nature whatsoever for any sin. Just as God under the Old Testament demanded the body and blood of perfect animals to atone for the sins of the nation under the law that only granted a limited and temporary forgiveness to the penitent; so, under the New Covenant God sending His own Son Jesus Christ to voluntarily pay for our sins past, present and future, grants eternal, permanent forgiveness to all who believe in Him once and for all time, therefore Jesus fulfilled the Law and unleashed the New Covenant sent down from heaven with the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Absolute truth.



    When God sent His Son Jesus Christ to Pay IN FULL for our sins, it was not as an exchange or substitution for God commanded and demanded PAYMENT IN FULL knowing that only Jesus His sinless Son alone could and would absolutely do it.


    And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.  Heb 8:12; Heb 10:17Eph 1:7In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 

    Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:



    FORGIVENESS: freedom; pardon:—deliverance, forgiveness, liberty, remission,  release from bondage or imprisonment,

    forgiveness or pardon, of sins (letting them go as if they had never been committed), remission of the penalty.



    REMEMBER THEIR SIN NO MORE: none, never to remember, recall, call to mind, never to be brought to remembrance, be remembered, be thought of, cease to cause to remember, to cause to be remembered, keep in remembrance, to mention, to record, to make a memorial, make remembrance with the intent to punish.


    Our salvation is not on the lay-away plan Lord Jesus got the job done forever in His perfect sinless sacrifice of Himself to pay for our sins let us recall:  Heb 9:12

    Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.


    ETERNAL REDEMPTION: without beginning and end, that which always has been and always will be, without beginning, without end, never to cease, everlasting.


    Paul keeps hammering away, this is a blood covenant that has obtained permanent forgiveness for all who believe. Our sins have been permanently taken away-abolished as though they never existed by the sinless blood of Jesus Christ: 1Jo 3:6Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

    1Jo 5:18We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

    What this means is that the Christian does not have to choose to sin, and there is no justification of anyone claiming salvation who willfully, deliberately, and unrepentantly chooses to sin.


    The goal of the authentic Christian is not to get forgiven over and over again as those under the Law of Moses. Our forgiveness is complete and permanent through the atonement of Lord Jesus Christ.

    Those Christians who in error insist upon begging God to forgive their sins per each sin frankly do not know  or likely do not trust in the power of our Saviour Jesus Christ. Human beings are stuck in the present, God is impervious to time as He is eternal -timeless.


    God through Jesus Christ made all things including time of which He has allotted to every person a limited amount, according to His will. He Himself is limitless, and not bound by time which He made and will also end. By His power, He nullifies, better totally abolishes all sins of the believer past present and future. Therefore, He has no need of them, no record of them anymore, because He has totally removed them-taken them away forever. 

    Jhn 1:29The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world


    Our goal or work as authentic Christians is to believe what Jesus has done for us forever in forgiving all of our sins, past, present and future. Therefore, we faithfully repent/renounce and steadfastly turn away from any and all sins to God, as evidence of our salvation, to lead lives of holiness before God and men, because we can through the Holy Spirit given to every believer through faith in Jesus Christ. 

    The Bible has an overabundance of teachings on how the Christian is to live before God in an absolute sense, not a tentative sense.

    Some might say, we are only flesh, God understands we are weak and prone to sin. NO, God says we are spirit-of His spirit and commands all believers to be like Him: 1Pe 1:15

    But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

    1Pe 1:16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

    Col 2:11

    In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: Eph 4:22;  Col 3:8;  Col 3:9.


    Through daily rigorously practicing aligning our will with the will of God out of love and faith in Him we become more and more like Him over time-living by the standard of Christ not of the world or our old man or old nature: See works of the flesh vs the spirit.

    Love and truth forever, serola
