TITHING – THE WRITTEN TRUTH.

 

Hello Audience! Welcome to RTGF TV program. We are delighted to present Episode10; the last of the ROOT Series – “know the truth….” What is truth? Though Jesus is the truth, it was clarified in Episode 9 for ref. Without knowing what truth is, it is impossible to worship God in the spirit and truth (John 4:24). Today’s title is: Tithing; the written truth. Tithing has been a controversial subject for long. This is because truth has eluded the people. But scripture has not made room for discordant voices. It is man who overrides word of God with his opinion. This title is an extract from our new book title: “The Riddle.” – Revealed 2020AD!

My Name is: Dr. Danson Ubebe; Teacher and Author.

Topic. Willful transgressions.

Objective: To learn to please God, and not man.  

 

Origin of tithing. Abram began tithing with a tenth of war plunder. He willingly gave ten percent of his booty of war once to Melchizedek (Gen. 14:14-20), king of Salem (Peace) and prince of the Most-High God who have no father, no mother and no genealogy (Heb. 7:1-2). This suggests him to be the shadow of the substance; who is Christ Jesus (Col. 2:17); the Prince of Peace (Is. 9:6) and custodian of all authority in heaven and earth (Mt. 28”18). Melchizedek first gave bread and blessed him. Abram tithe was in response and closed forever. So, his son Isaac, born of blood and flesh, did not continue it.

Emphasis: Tithe by Abram was an expression of faith in God for the seed of promise to him. It was a response to the blessing he first received from Melchizedek. It signified his thanks to God. It was not by compulsion but out of his free will to demonstrate his faith in God. It is similar to what scripture described as pure and undefiled religion under grace (James 1:27) – voluntary service, giving, care, etc. God stated it similarly in another scripture (Mt. 25:33-40).

The origin of the law. After Isaac, was his son Jacob. He had a wrestling dwell with God but did not prevail. Then Jacob made a vow to give a tenth to God of the blessing he would receive from Him (Gen 28:20-22). It made tithing a demand culture. However, he did not fulfill his vow personally. So, when God set Israel, Jacob’s children free from bondage in Egypt, He gave them the law through Moses (John 1:17). Amongst the children, Levi received the priesthood. God commanded that he receives tithes according to the law from his brethren (Heb. 7:5). The tithe was one-tenth of farm produce. God gave it to the tribe of Levi as an inheritance in lieu of land allotment in the land flowing with milk and honey (Lev. 27:30-32). They too paid a tenth of it to God but He gave it back to them (Num. 18:21). At a time, Israel neglected payment of tithe to the priests. So, the Levites abandoned their priesthood duty to fend for themselves. As a result, Israel robbed God (Mal. 3:8). Then He declared: “You are cursed with a curse, for you have robbed Me, even this whole nation. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My storehouse, And try Me now in this.” And etcetera.

Emphasis: It was the payment of Jacob’s vow that was imposed on his children by law, so to speak. So, tithing according to the law was a practice of circumstance and not a standing commandment. But they were unable to fulfill it, for to fail in one aspect meant failure in all requirements of the law (James 2:10). So, when Jesus came to save man, He first fulfilled the law (Mt. 5:17). Therefore, those who do the work of the law to this day are under curse of the law by choice (Gal. 3:10).

 

God used tithing to show life continues after death. Attention of many believers is on tithing to receive increase. Can tithing offer anything else? One mystery made known by the process of tithing is disclosure of evidence of life after death. In apparent reference to tithing generally, scripture declared that mortal men receive tithe, but there he who blessed Abraham receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives. Even Levi, who receive tithes, paid tithes through Abraham, so to speak (Heb. 7:7-11).

 

Emphasis: That he “receives them of whom it is witnessed that he lives” is a hard statement. To many preachers it means Melchizedek receives tithe paid by mortal men to this day. So, it is used to justify payment of tithe under the gospel of grace. But they forget that tithe is of the work of the hands of man. And that God does not require anything produced by hands of man to serve Him under grace (Acts 17:25). Rather it is for serving fellow men (1John 4:20-21). So, what is scripture saying? It requires visual text package to explain as follows: According to scripture, God prepared a country for those who confessed they were strangers and pilgrims on earth and desire a better place (Heb. 11:13-16). So, the phrase; “he receives them,” means those of faith of Abraham who paid tithe and are asleep are received there by Melchizedek (Heb. 7:8). In the country is Paradise for those of faith of Abraham till made perfect (Heb. 11:39-40). It is the testimony by Melchizedek that Abraham lives and there is life after death. Those not of faith of Abraham camp in the section known as Hell, separated from Paradise with impregnable gulf (Lk. 16:26). 

From paradise, they will rise first (1Thes. 4:15-17) for Judgment and reward respectively by either Christ (2Cor. 5:10) or the White Throne (Rev. 20: 12-15). Those whose names are in the book of life will be made perfect and enter everlasting life. Those whose names are not found in the book of life will be condemned to the Lake of fire (Dan. 12:1-3). 

COUNTRY GOD PREPARED FOR

THOSE OF FAITH OF ABRAHAM

Abram’s tithe was for children of promise (Gal. 3:29), but Levi’s tithe was for Israel that now is (Lev. 26:46). The Levi was in the loins of Jacob who came from the loins of Isaac who in turn came from the loins of Abraham when he paid tithe to Melchizedek (Heb. 7:9-10).

 

But those not given Law and of faith of Abraham were in the loins of the Seed of promise, who is Christ, by whom man is born again. Though Isaac was in the loins of Abraham, he did not pay tithe himself. But Jacob made a vow to pay tithe. So, tithing according to the law is based on demand by children of flesh and blood. It is therefore different from Abram’s tithe which was with regards to the children of promise.

 

So, children of Jacob received the law to pay his vow. The Law could not make anyone perfect under the Levitical priesthood. So, under grace tithing is a nullity. Moreover, the gift of grace which God gave out of His self-counsel aligns with His self-counsel of seed of promise to Abraham. It makes the receiver to give praise and thanks to God, not with material things. Scripture describes this practice as pure and undefiled religion – visit inmates, feed and clothe the needy, and etc. (James 1:27). God stated it similarly in another scripture (Mt. 25:33-40).

 

Emphasis: Under grace giving is sacrificial. It is from the greater to the lesser. Giving produces circle of flow of blessing from God to both the giver and receiver and thanks and praise from them to God. Whereas, tithing according to the law is subjective and is based on give by the lesser to expect increase from the greater. Example: The widow gave all she had (Mk. 12:41-44). Early century church did not tithe.

 

Rather they collected on the first day of the week what God laid in the heart of each one as he may prosper, storing up, so to speak, gifts for saints in Jerusalem (1Cor. 16:1-3). We are to give to those who feed us with the word of truth and the deprived. It was the show of love of God and to demonstrate our thanks and praise to Him who has blessed us. It serves more purposes than tithing.

 

PROMISE – CHRIST JESUS

Jesus is not entitled to collect tithe. Levi tithe is the tribe inheritance. It is forbidden to transfer it to another tribe (Num. 36: 5-10). Now Jesus belonged to another tribe. Therefore, He was not qualified to demand or receive tithe. So are His disciples. Whoever defiles this deny Jesus; the Master who fulfilled the Law (Mt. 5:17-20). To affirm His right as the Savior of man, He washed the feet of His disciples (John 13:5-20).

 

By it He fulfilled the custom of Israel which gave ROFR to the Next of kin. So, man as Next of kin of Adam surrendered his right of first refusal to Jesus to redeem him (Ruth 4:1-11). Else, nothing God made could redeem his soul or buy his safety (Ps. 49:6-9). So, Jesus shut up everyone under sin (Rom. 8:3-4). It made Christ the end of law for righteousness to everyone who believes (1John 5:3).

 

This meant the change from old to new way of serving God. It formalized, change of Levitical to Christ priesthood (Heb. 11-16). It annulled tithing totally. Therefore, it is transgression to rebuild tithing which Jesus once destroyed, so to speak (Gal. 2:18). Some may argue He did not condemn tithing (Mt. 23:23). Neither did He approve of it!

 

Emphasis: Many see washing of the feet of the apostles by Jesus as example of only service. Rather it represents change to new order of service. First was to seek and get man’s approval to surrender his right to Him as his savior, for he could not save himself. It shows He did not impose His will on man. It was freely given as Peter shown (John 13: 8-9). It qualified Him to carry the burden of man to fulfill the law and saved man.

 

It reversed how Adam(man) surrendered his dominion to Satan in Garden of Eden. Also, Jesus neither condemned nor approved tithing because He lived under the Law and was mindful not to offend it. He made it clear that whoever shall deny Him before men, him He will also deny before His Father which is in heaven (Mt. 10:33).

 

Tithing re-introduced. In the first five century there was no demand for and payment of tithe. Why was it so? The disciples knew and kept to the truth – Jesus fulfilled the purpose for tithe and it stood abolished. So, they feared God. Disciples sought first the kingdom of God and His Righteousness (Mt. 6:33). Why was tithe re-introduced? By early medieval period (5th – 1500th AD), warfare which had been the chief source of gathering wealth began to dry up.

 

Focus turned to agricultural revolution. It turned out to be the new form of exploitation by newly introduced parish. The Christian nobility began to squeeze revenues out of the land which they controlled through more productivity and pastoral care. Soon church began to tax the new farming resources by demanding a scriptural tenth of agricultural produce; the tithe resurfaced. (Reference: A History of Christianity. The first three thousand years – by DARMAID Mac CULLOCH).

 

    Emphasis: Tithing was re-introduced in the 6th century. It was stiffly resisted by congregations. Notwithstanding, it was re- enforced in 8th century by instrument of parliamentary law in England. It was of agricultural produce until 1836 when produce was replaced with cash for rent. Though the law was latter abolished, church continued to ask for and collect tithe to this day. Now it is clear that to tithe is not to please God, but man in contrast to scripture (Gal. 1:10).

 

“After the fact”: To tithe is to rebuff Jesus, as a liar. It is a brazen exploitation of those who lack knowledge of the truth. Christian nobility uses it as weapon of fear to scare people to succumb to it, using all known arsenal to justify it.  Scripture predicted this time (2Pet. 2:1-3). One can see why Jesus did not commit Himself to man for He knows everything about him (John 2:24-25).

 

Emphasis: This is not an attempt to dissuade you from your belief or unbelief. But to make you know the truth. It is only the truth you know that will make you free. The choice to either please God or man is yours.

Intro. Hello Audience! Welcome to RTGF TV program. This is Episode 8 of the ROOT Series – The title is: Know the truth and enter by the door before He is shut (Rev 3:7-8). Our title today is: God explained Grace. Scripture is the ultimate source of what is truth. Once misinterpreted, it will sow the seed of fallen away from Jesus. As it is written the fallen away will happen first before the coming of Christ and the gathering together to Him (2Thes. 2:1-3). So, to teach and preach man’s opinion of scripture distant people from the kingdom of God. It is why judgment must begin at the house of God (1Pet. 4:17).

 

My Name is: Dr. Danson Ubebe; Teacher and Author.

Topic. Explanation of Grace by God. 

Objective: To know what Grace truly is.

                         

HOW GOD EXPLAINED GRACE.

BY THE DEATH OF MAN IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN,

HE REJECTED EVERYTHING FREE FROM GOD (GEN. 3:6-8). 

   SINCE THEN EVERY GIFT HAS BEEN UNMERITTED & UNEARNED. 

GRACE & TRUTH CAME THROUGH JESUS CHRIST (JOHN 1:17). IT SHOWS GRACE & TRUTH ARE EXCLUSIVE GIFTS.

SO, WHAT IS GRACE?

BEFORE ADVENT OF JESUS MAN WORSHIPED GOD AT THE TEMPLE.

THE VEIL OF THE TEMPLE SYMBOLIZED TOTAL SEPARATION OF SINFUL MAN FROM GOD (Ex 26:31-35). 

WHEN JESUS DIED THE VEIL TORN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM (MT.27:51).

IT SIGNALED REMOVAL OF SIN BARRIER BETWEEN MAN & GOD.

THEN GOD WHO COMMANDED LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF DARKNESS SHOWN IN OUR HEARTS TO GIVE THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GLORY OF GOD IN THE FACE OF JESUS (2COR. 4:6).

* SO, THE SPIRIT OF GOD GAVE GIFTS TO MAN (1COR. 12:4).

ALSO, IN A SITUATION WHERE ENEMIES BLASPHEME GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GLORY & OF GOD COULD REST UPON ANY MAN WHO IS REPROACHED FOR THE SAKE OF JESUS’ NAME (1PET. 4:14). 

ON THE PART OF THE VICTIM GOD IS GLORIFIED.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? 

GOD EXPLAINED IT BY REASSURING PAUL THUS: 

MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU (2COR. 12:9).

IT IMPLIED THAT THE “REST OF THE SPIRIT OF GLORY & OF GOD” ON BUFFETED PAUL PRODUCED “GRACE” TO HELP HIM ENDURE. 

NOW JESUS IS GOD (JOHN 1:1) & 

HE IS ALSO THE GLORY OF GOD (HEB. 1:3).

**THUS, THE SPIRIT OF GLORY & OF GOD IS THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST.

SO, GRACE COMES FROM GOD TO CHRIST WHO MEDIATES FOR MAN & HE IS SAVED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH FOR THE SAKE OF HIS NAME.

SO, GRACE IS INTERCESSION OF CHRIST FOR THE SAINTS (ROM. 8:34).

IT INSPIRES MAN TO TRUST IN JESUS & WALK LIKE HIM (1JOHN 2:6).

Note: 

*It is the Spirit of God who gave gifts to man – these 

  are the gifts in the category of favor. 

**But it is the Spirit of Jesus Christ who gave the Grace.

  1. As every gift is undeserved, it is wrong to single out  

    and label grace as unmerited. What of other gifts too?

  1. Fear & believe the word of God according to scripture & not of man who described grace as unmerited favor.

 

Situations for grace:

1a. When God forgave & forgot the sins man   

      committed in the past (Rom. 3:25). 

1b. When God saved man from eternal condemnation 

      (Eph. 2:8-9).

  1. When man has exhausted his powers – like in the 

    case of the woman with issue of blood (Lk. 8:43-48).

  1. When situation overwhelms man (2Cor. 12:9).
  2. During dire situations – accident, sudden attack,  

    Demo of power of God over evil (Dan. 3:16), & etc.

  1. When God repent from destroying life from the   

    surface of the earth because of man’s wickedness –  

    like in the case of Noah (Gen. 6:5-8).

  1. In every setting that might give glory to God, like 

    Daniel in the lion’s den (Dan. 6:16).

 

We were saved by grace through faith, not by works (Eph. 2:8-9).

Wrong interpretation of grace leads to wrong understanding of salvation.

Hello Audiences! Welcome to RTGF. Over the centuries, men have been overriding strange word of God with human opinion and passed as though it is truth. The most recent is rewriting grace as favor. So confirm what you hear or read with true scripture. Ask questions.

We do not only teach the truth by the Holy Spirit prompting we encourage viewers to interrogate our teaching and contact us via WhatsApp Number or email below. This Episode is a review of the previous six Episodes of the ROOT Series; titled; “know the truth and enter by the door before He is shut – Rev. 3:7-8.”My name Dr, Danson Ubebe, teacher and Author.

Out topic for today is: Summary of the basis for godly knowledge of the Holy bible.
Our objective is: To give everyone chance to know the truth about some crucial words essential for sound Christian education.

Text:
The word of truth is a source of excitement – remedy for depression. It sets before us in heaven assurances for the hope we have as the anchor of our soul. The hope is the Great High Priest; who is Christ Jesus (Col 1:5). Everyone is given the choice to either believe and abide in Jesus and enter by the narrow gate leading to testing way to life. Or deny Him and enter by the wide gate which leads to Broadway to destruction (Mt. 7:13-14).

Episode 1, examined what scriptural grace truly is. Men label grace as either unmerited favor or other tags. But God Himself revealed grace differently as the fruit produced by the Spirit of Christ (1Pet. 4:14), and as the intercession of Jesus for man (Rom. 8:34). Grace is one instrument of reign of Jesus. It can only be given by God. So grace is unlike favor which both God and man can give (Lk. 2:52).

Though the objective of the cross of Jesus is salvation, the object of the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ is the gift of grace to man (Gal. 6:14). By grace through faith all men were once saved as one body (Eph. 2:8-9). But each person is to choose to believe in Jesus to be saved or reject Him and be unsaved forever. A wrong reading of grace leads to wrong knowledge of gospel of Jesus – Gal. 1:7. Insert

Episode 2, highlights three Pillars of Christianity (Mt. 16:16-19) – the rock on which Jesus promised to build His church, the truth God Himself revealed is the rock, and the church Jesus founded on the rock. So, the truth is the basis of the church of Christ which is His body (1Cor. 12:26-27). Thus, a believer or church is an incarnation of truth.

As Jesus is the Rock (1Cor. 10:4) and Rock is a combination of units of rock, so also the body or church of Christ is the union of persons of truth. In this context Jesus told Pilate: “Quote”; “…and for this cause, I have come into the World, “that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My word (John 18:37)”;

“Unquote”. So, Jesus as the truth is the foundation of His church. Moreover the truth is the objective of the church of Christ, and His church is known by personal morals not structure. Only truth guarantees eternal life. It is the will of God for those who believe in Christ (John 6:38-40).

The truth is the power of God for man to continue in the doctrine and fellowship of the apostles, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers (Acts 2:42). Thus, the pillars dovetail to the Lord’s Supper. For the constant reminder of the objective of shedding of the blood of Jesus on the cross oft Calvary; the salvation of our soul. (Ref. insert).


Episode 3 reveals why we are here. It touched briefly on timeless creation. Then foundation of the world of time. From one chaotic earth of darkness caused by fallen Satan God made two earth in different realms of life. Celestial and terrestrial. As required by God, the sea and earth brought forth to both earth at once the host He made in them.

He made man in His image and likeness in His Word (Gen. 1:27); the arrowhead in whom dwelled mankind. Episode explained what God mean by He created man; male and female He made them. On celestial earth He planted the Garden of Eden for him to serve (Gen. 2:8). It explained events, including origin of blood in man, in Eden till God drove him into the realm of terrestrial earth of darkness for his sin. It was the beginning of time-based life.

God called firmament dividing the two-earth heaven. In it, God made the sun, moon and stars. They rule over human day and night in turn, provide essential light (Gen. 1:14-18) and moon create seasons (Ps. 104:19). Gave brief outline of the incarnation of God in the flesh. (Continue in insert).

Episode 4 is about the journey of life. It gives at a glance where man is from, he is, and is going – life or death (Deut. 30:19). The lifestyle on earth is the determinant factor of choice of destination. It laid down necessary kind of life which leads to life and that which leads to death. To end up in life requires you to live by faith in God and match it with corresponding work in the flesh

– “Quote”; “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans, and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world (James 1:27)” – this is one instant men have override word of God with own opinion of: “Christianity is a relationship”.

Things of the flesh will perish on earth (Mt. 6:19-21). Focus your gospel only on the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ (Gal. 6:14), and Him crucified (1Cor. 2:2). Until man is made perfect or given glorious body he will remain born again only by grace through faith and not bodily. This faith is of the substance of things hoped for (1Cor. 6:14).

The substance is Christ-like stature whose body will never die. But earthly body will surely die. This is the doubt against man claiming born again with earthly body. According to scripture God forgave man only past sins (Rom. 3:25). Not present and future sins. Scripture further fueled this by warning all, including believers to flee evil (Gal. 5:19-21).

After mortal death the saved spirit will go to Paradise from where he will go for judgment by Christ and given award. With his name in the Book of life he will move on to the kingdom of God (Rev. 21:2-4).

The unsaved will go via Hell to “White Throne Judgment” and end up in Lake of fire (Rev. 2o:14-15). Be wise. For details read the blog and view the video at: http://www.youtube.com/c/returntogodforum.

Episode 5 unveiled Jesus as the living tabernacle. On earth He was and in heaven where He is seated on the right hand of God before His Throne (Rev. 21:3-4). Before Jesus was born, God declared to Himself with an oath what He would personally do (Is. 45:23), and more. First Jesus came as the Word of God and as God (John 1:1).

Next, He presented as the Seed of a woman according to promise (Gen. 3:15). Later born as a child in the flesh according to prophesy (Is. 9:6). Then trio God came down to dwell in Him (Mt. 3:16). So, Jesus became a living tabernacle and the double of the trio God (Col. 1:15).

How? – This is hard talk, reflect on it – {i. The Word materialized, ii. Trio God who is unchanging lodged Himself in Him (Mt. 3:16-17), iii. He created soul in like manner (Gen. 1:26-27)}. Thus, God dwelled bodily in Him (Col. 2:9). So, He fulfilled the oath He made.

After Jesus ministry He suffered, crucified and buried and resurrected together with humanity (Rom. 6:3-11). God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself (1Cor. 5:19-21). Humanity was born again by the word of God. Thus, as He is so we, in this world (1John 4:17). So, we are to seek only those things which are in heaven (Col. 3:1).

And daily equip the saints with biblical knowledge of the gifts He gave to some men before He ascended (Eph. 4:11-14). Jesus now intercedes for us by means of grace (Rom. 8:34). – Refer Insert for highlights.

Episode 6 examines born again. Jesus was crucified for our justification and by it God forgave man past sins (Rom. 3:25). Clearly not present and future sins. He was raised for our sanctification, which is sustained by imitating Jesus and enduring to the end (Heb. 6:12).

Certainly, man has been born again with glorious body through the word of God in Christ (1Pet. 1:23-25). But the man is humanity {i. An arrowhead, a reversal of Adam stature in the beginning (Reference. Episode 3), ii. It is in him all men will gather in Him (Eph. 1:10); as living stone are being built up a spiritual house; a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ (1Pet. 2:5)}.

Individual with body of flesh is born again by grace through faith in God (Eph. 2:8-9); not with body of flesh. So it is still substance of things hoped for (Eph. 4:13). Born again Jesus is the testimony and the empty tomb too. He showed difference between body of flesh and of glory by ability to dissolve pass barriers, appear and disappear (John 20:19).

Is not done with earthly body. Currently the inner man is being renewed (2Cor. 4:16). Does this suggest the spirit man who is the soul has been born again now? The answer is no. So fleshly man cannot be the righteousness of God as it is yet by faith as he races to be the perfect man in Christ (2Cor. 5:21).

To be the righteousness of God follows a process which must be completed first. – Believe to be saved (Acts 16:31). Next be delivered from the power of darkness and conveyed into the kingdom of Christ (Col. 1:13) for washing with the word of God and regeneration of the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:15), and etc. So to be the righteousness of God is not by fiat.

The bible represents the collection of God’s words of life and of death (2 Cor. 3:6-10). Knowing the Mystery of the collection is the true foundation of sound understanding of its message.The Holy Bible is one book which shows clearly how all things, seen and unseen, came into existence, as well as how they will end. God who took the form of man on earth as Jesus was unequivocal about the conflict between the Kingdom of God and darkness.

Knowing the contrast will make man to know that God is, and fear God, and to give Him due reverence. In the Kingdom of God is an eternal light, whereas, outside the Kingdom there is no eternal light but everlasting deep darkness. The following schematics represent the testimony of the Kingdom of God and the Domain of darkness. The domain of darkness comprises of the entire Air and the visible world and the Night region of the Earth which God created in the beginning. It is from the latter that God stretched out the visible and time regulated world of matter.

Truth and life and real light exist in the Kingdom of God alone (John 14:6). The world which man lives in and the Air in-and-around it and the darkness which God called night in the beginning are in deep darkness. Every man is darkness in his old nature and was born in iniquity and sin (Ps. 51:5).

This architecture suggests that the gospel of salvation is meant to make man change from his old nature, which is dead, to the new nature which is life. This change happens through gradual slide in behavior by grace of God, coupled with faith from the old to the new way of living which is the form of life in the kingdom of God (Lk. 11:2c).

Unfortunately, the commonly observed message in today’s quest for salvation suggests otherwise. Rather the interest of many professing Christianity today seems to point to some form of paganism (Mt. 6:31:32). This suggests why it is difficult to distinguish the believer in God from a non believer nowadays. All now seek the same earthly things of darkness.

But understanding the mystery of the bible is the only truth that will turn the misfortune around for good. A man who knows the truth will not need anybody to make him change his lifestyle in obedience of the word of God.

As it was examined in the model architecture previously, the visible world is a mere shadow and a familiar terrain to man. So the mystery is certainly not of that world. Rather it is of the invisible world where truth is the only order perpetually.

It is in the invisible world that everything which God spoke into existence assumed the nature of substance of the form which He desired it to be. Until God came down to earth in the form of man nobody had any idea about the mystery of the bible (Phil. 2:6-8). His manifestation made man to know that Jesus is the wisdom of God for man (1Cor. 1:30). So being the wisdom made Jesus the personification of the mystery of Christianity.

Thus, Jesus can be likened to a long nail driven in part into a wall in a king’s house and on it is hung all his treasures of glory (Ezra 9:8).

Now Jesus has reconciled man to God. This opened the door for man to behold the glory of God. But Jesus personifies this glory, being the founding father of the new covenant. He is equally the first man of the new creation, the eternal life of the new clan, the revelation of God (John 1:18), and man’s everlasting life (Is. 9:6-7).

This suggests therefore that Jesus is the mystery of the words of the Holy Bible (1Tim. 3:16). So whoever desires to see and enter the kingdom of God must of necessity abide in Jesus (John 15:4-5).

Abiding in Christ means a total embrace of all that pleases God and denying self of all that God disapprove of in His word.

(Excerpt from ‘Visions of Righteousness of God’, 2016 Title Book).

The grace of God is a metaphor of the prevailing reign in the Kingdom of God. It represents the account of the working of the Spirit of glory and of God (Hebrew 1:3). What is this working of the Spirit of glory and of God? Examination of the scriptures reveals that Jesus is both God, being His Word (John 1:1; Rev. 19:11-16), and the glory of God (John 1:14). This suggests that the working of the Spirit of glory and of God is the ‘Reign of Christ the Lord’. Knowledge by inspiration revealed that it is this reign upon any situation on earth which the scripture decoded as the grace of God. It might therefore be apt to regard grace of God as the imprint of the ‘Reign of Christ the Lord’.

It thus implies that the grace of God is peculiar to Him and the Kingdom of God, different from the grace of man in the same way that His love is. So there cannot be grace of God without Jesus Christ the Lord. It is the experience of this atmosphere of reign which suggests that the grace of God is upon a situation (1 Peter 4:14). This might be in a situation where man is facing tribulations for the sake of believing in Jesus and yet is able to persevere. It is such that builds the character of a man to rejoice in adversity in hope of the glory of God.

This atmosphere of grace is of the righteousness of God. A man might access it with faith through Christ (Rom. 5:2). It clearly suggests that grace is not what might accurately be described as either undeserved or unmerited favour. We might be trivializing grace of God to label it as an unmerited favour. Obviously, there is nothing of God which man merits. Favour is itself unmerited. An example is that Abraham received favour of God. But he did not merit it. This is because he worshiped idol like every other persons of his time before God called him alone (Genesis 12:1).

This suggests a grave flaw in the opinion of many Christians who today regard and accept that the grace of God is an unmerited and undeserved favour. It is a pointer to the deception going on in Christianity. It is believed that it is this viewing of the grace of God through human prism that has further suggested another flaw. This is to believe the loud and yet unsustainable claim that the past, present and future sins have been forgiven those who might believe in Jesus who was crucified on the cross. This error suggests that many who hold to such understanding might unwittingly be lacking in true knowledge of the grace of God. Let us examine what the scriptures say about grace.

Grace came through Jesus (John 1:17). The scripture is very emphatic that the sacrifice which Jesus made on the cross was the justification of God to forgive man the sins which he committed previously (Rom. 3:25). This is the foundation upon which every other talks around the grace of God stands. It is this one-off sacrifice which suggested that the entire human race was at once saved by grace (Eph. 2:8). This salvation was of the Counsel of God alone. Meaning it is the common salvation to everybody; irrespective of race, religion, and colour, gender and so on (Jude 3a). This suggests another stage of grace for those who might believe to enable them work out own salvation (Phil. 2:12).

The scripture paints a picture suggesting that to believe amounts to abiding in Jesus thereafter, like a leech would do (John 15:4-5). The man who obeys this requirement is whom King David foresaw that God will not impute sin to (Rom. 4:8). He has been born of God. As a result God has given to him the new Spirit of Christ to live for Him. The new Spirit is what made him a ‘born again’ person. It is this Spirit alone which the Holy Spirit has sealed to preserve the virtue of the nature of God in him (Eph. 1:13). So technically he does not sin because of the seed of God in him (1 John 3:9). If the soul and body of the man which are normally of joint existence with the Spirit chose not to obey the Spirit the man will disengage from Christ and wither like a branch of a tree starved of water (John 15:6).  So he will be robbed of the knowledge and wisdom of God. But if the man confesses and repents of the sin committed he will be cleansed by the blood of Jesus  (1 John 1:7).

Grace made propitiation of Jesus to fulfill King David’s prophecy of; ‘blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered’. This prophecy referred to the Gentiles and Israelite who might believe in Jesus Christ (Rom. 4:7). As a result God promised not to remember the sins anymore (Is. 43:25; Heb. 8:12; Heb. 10:17).

No man will ever be punished or judged on account of the sins for which Jesus suffered, or be alienated from God because of them. This suggests that once a man thinks he has believed, he is to carry his cross and follow Christ continually (Mk. 8:34). It is believed that every other scripture on forgiveness by the grace of God might only survive scrutiny when viewed solely in the context of the common salvation by the propitiation of Jesus (Rom. 3:25).

The fundamental knowledge in the foregoing is that man is three natures in unity.  In addition only the spirit nature presently has the investiture of holiness and righteousness (Eph. 4:24). Meaning that there remains the soul and body to be so robed (Corinthian 3:18; 5:1-3; Rom. 8:11). This means man has the duty to guide against corrupting his body and soul. It suggests an affirmation of another level of grace, and the scripture which requires man to work out own salvation.

This grace has to be accessed. How? By imitating Abram who though, was blind like everybody is believed God. Therefore man is to believe in Jesus so that God will impute his belief to him for righteousness, apart from his works (Rom. 4:6). Next God will give the gift of the Spirit of faith to the man (Ron. 4:5). This gift of faith is of the form of the light of God who has shown in man’s heart to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthian 4:6).

It is this gift of faith which enables man to develop personal faith by hearing the word of God as often as possible (Rom. 10:17). Hearing manifests the glow of the glory of God to the consciousness of man. This awakens his consciousness to surrender to Jesus Christ and to the knowledge that God is. This is the faith of this man. Then by grace God will give to him the new heart of flesh (undivided) and new Spirit of holiness and righteousness (Ezekiel 36:26). This suggests that the soul and body will cue behind the spirit in the newness of the Spirit of Christ to walk by faith (Rom. 8:1, 4; 1 Tim. 6:1); being the only way to please God (Heb. 11:6). However the weakness of the body and soul in the interim makes it a challenge. Here is where to again give thanks to God for the grace of daily living which He has given to man (2 Cor. 12:9).

But can this righteousness bestowed be reversed? The answer is yes. Ezekiel prophesied it that if a man who once received righteousness backslides and will not repent, he will die like Adam (Ezek. 18:24). Thus the quote ‘that all died in Adam’ is not parallel to the quote ‘that all might live in Christ’. The reason is that in Adam all men were in his loins. But in Christ every man is made righteous according to his choice (Deut. 30:19).  Then he is to work out own salvation (Phil. 2:12). This suggests that backsliding permanently might attract withdrawal of right of righteousness of God in Christ because light and darkness does not coexist (2 Corinthian 6:14). Every man shall account for his present and future sins on the day of the Lord (2 Cor. 5:10); using the teaching of the Holy Spirit as the standard (1 Corinthian 2:13). What then is this grace of God?

REMARKS ON THE ILLUSTRATION

Every man is darkness (Eph. 5:8). He is born into the dark plane representing the kingdom of darkness of iniquity and sins. This is within the heart of man and it is separated from God (Ps. 51:5).

Truth is the life of the word of God (John 17:17). It is truth that conveys divine virtues. The features of divine virtues are the instruments of governance in heaven. They are poured out of heaven to make imprints which form the kingdom of God within man. Imprints signify the intervention of Christ in man’s situation. These are the ongoing back end activities of grace in man’s heart. It is the imprint that the scripture has decoded in the front end on earth, as the grace of God.

Love is the prime instrument of governance, and its imprint is the bedrock of the kingdom of God within man (Lk. 17:21). In any situation of man an apt imprint of grace might appear on the plane of bedrock to lend a hand.

The plane of darkness of iniquity and sin into which man is born and lives lies below the plane of bedrock, indicated with stars. It is from this kingdom of darkness that a man of faith might through Christ access the kingdom of God within him, to obtain mercy and find grace to aid him in times of need (Heb. 4:16). In other words, man requires faith to ascend to stand in grace. The aftermath is the opportunity to rejoice in hope of the glory of God (Rom.5:2). Standing in grace grants man the benefits of the reign of Christ, or His governance. In order words Christ will do all things through him as though he is the doer (Phil. 4:13).

EXPLANATION OF HOW GRACE HELPS MAN

Let’s examine the woman with the issue of blood as an example of how grace works. The account suggests that she believed a hunch, which came from the Spirit of faith. It made her to believe that touching the hem of the robe of Jesus would heal her. As a result she surrendered to the voice, which is the practical way to express faith. Meaning she carried out the intrinsic work in the voice by touching the hem of the robe of Jesus Christ (Mk. 5:30).

As expected, she was healed by the grace of God. Jesus equally noticed that power left Him. This suggests that grace is a result of back end activity as shown previously in the illustration. In other words, that Jesus felt some power left Him suggests that grace is caused by some sort of operation by a certain force in the kingdom of God. That certain force is the action of instrument of governance in the kingdom as shown.

But governance in the kingdom is the description of the reign of ChristSo grace is the expression on earth of the imprint made by the intervening force of the reign of Christ in the kingdom of God within man. That is to say that, the intervening power of the reign of Christ first makes a divine imprint in the kingdom of God within man. Then the imprint is decoded in the dark spirit realm of iniquity and sin in man’s heart (Ps. 51:5), and is made known to the outward senses as grace.

Going back to the woman, she was darkness and lived in the plane of darkness (Eph. 5:8). But her faith lifted her up to the plane of grace. Then she found grace to help in her need, and she was healed (Heb. 4:16). The declaration by Jesus that the woman’s faith healed her testified to the role of faith in the matters of grace (Mk. 5:34).

To recap, the imprint which is made in the kingdom of God within man is known on earth as grace. Every imprint is made by an intervening power from heaven and is known as the instrument of governance in the reign of Christ.

The benefit of grace is spiritual in form. It is in the likeness of the wind, which is neither seen nor touchable but can be made conscious of by feeling or hearing (John 3:8). It is this which suggests the difference between grace and favour. How? Every benefit regarding human or worldly life derived from inhumanly impossible circumstances or unexpected source is not a result of grace. Rather, it is as a result of favour.

THE PROOF THAT GRACE IS THE IMPRINT OF THE REIGN OF CHRIST

 Let us consider two scenarios:

1. It is the grace of God alone which can enable man to endure and bear and hope and believe all things. These are the nuts and bolts of love (1 Cor. 13:7).

1.1. An example, consider the man who cannot exercise self-control. Experience suggests that he cannot endure injustices like: reproaches, slaps, persecution and insults without avenge unless by grace of God (1 Pet. 3:14).

2. On the other hand, to face reproach and still be calm is a sign of the presence of the Spirit of glory, and of God upon victim (1 Pet. 4:14).

Now harmonize the two scenarios. It will suggest that the Spirit of glory and of God upon man is a description of the grace of God upon man. As it has been previously shown, grace is a metaphor for the imprint by instrument of divine governance. But as it has been explained previously an imprint in this context is the expression of instrument of reign of Spirit of glory, and of God.

Now Jesus Christ is the glory of God, and He is also the express nature of God (Heb. 1:3). This suggests that the presence of the Spirit of glory and of God is a description of the stewardship of Jesus Christ.

Incidentally the stewardship depicts the reign of Christ the Lord. This suggests that ‘grace is the imprint of the reign of Jesus Christ’ upon a given situation.

(Quod erat demonstrandum)

TABLE OF ANALYSIS

Nobody is in doubt that the favour of God is unmerited.

What then can be said of grace? Could it be a doubly unmerited favour?

That might suggest interpretation of the scripture with the wisdom of man.

It will imply therefore, that to label grace as unmerited favour denies the truth. One benefit of this new understanding by inspiration is that grace will constantly remind man of the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ in our heart – the plane of stars in the previous illustration.

Allowing scripture to interpret itself is the foolproof way to know the truth. This is how the true meaning of grace has been revealed. Before we have variously described grace according to opinion of man as either unmerited favor, or power, and so on. We have come to understand that the true meaning of sound word has only that one angle to it.

But the word of God is always clear-cut. Even though several texts in scripture suggests related to grace, they might not. It is in this light salvation by grace is seen by many in Christianity. But we can understand it better if we reason together. In the beginning God created man in His image and likeness (Gen. 1:27).

Identifying who this man is, possess hindrance to having true knowledge of scripture. Some say he is the spirit, others believe he is the body and another school believe he is the soul. The scripture has unequivocally identified the man created in the image and likeness of God as the soul (Gen. 1:27). It is just that man has chosen to believe his opinion and disregard the scripture. After God breathed into the nostril of the man of dust, two structures came alive as one entity … man became a living soul and a living being (Gen. 2:7). But before forming the man of dust God formed the spirit of man within him (Zech. 12:1b). So the breath of God consisted of life, which is the spirit, and the man He created earlier in His image and likeness; suggesting in the Lord for His glory (Is. 43:7).

It is this spirit that scripture refers to as the old man. As explained previously, the function of the spirit is to liaise for the soul internally (1 Cor. 2: 10-11). This is fully explained in an upcoming book titled ‘Doomed Christianity and Unshakable Lifeline.’

It was when spirit was doing his job that he encountered the spirit of evil (serpent) and got entangled by it to form the body of sin (Rom. 6:6).

So when Jesus was crucified, the body of sin (old man) was equally crucified. By this occurrence the real man (soul) was baptized into the death of Christ Jesus and buried with Him (Rom. 6:3-4). And when He was raised from the dead, the soul was equally raised.

So when man believes on Jesus, God will account it to him for righteousness (Rom. 4:3-5). This is how man was saved by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8).

It is at this moment God will give to the man (soul) who believed the new creation spirit of Christ that he might hereafter live for Christ by faith of the Son of God within his mortal body (Gal. 2:20). The new creation spirit is the Christ in man.

This will bring him to the identical state Adam was when God warned him not to eat of the tree of good and evil, else he would die (Gen. 2:17).

Up to that point in time, Adam lived by free-will to choose to either obey, or disobey God’s command. To realize that the man who believed on Jesus is re-set to the similar state of Adam when God commanded him not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil is the crux of understanding. It is the knowledge necessary to determine whether once saved will be saved either forever, or short lived. How?

God will not live the life of man for him, once saved by grace through faith.

When Adam died, all men were appointed to death of separation from God (Ps. 102:20). But with the salvation of all by grace through faith the prison previously holding them was opened as a result of the sacrifice of Jesus (Is. 61:1).

This restored man to the position of grace in the likeness of Adam before he committed sin in Eden. It once again gave all the right of option to use their individual free will to choose either life and blessing, or death and cursing (Deut. 30:19).

It is for this purpose scripture gave options of what a believer must always do (Mk. 12:31), and not do (1John 2:16-17).

So the man who believes, and fears God and keeps His covenant and remember His commandments of love to do them will remain saved forever (Ps. 103:17-18).

It is the only condition that satisfies once saved, saved forever.

But he who disregards the covenant and commandments of God will bear the consequences of rejection by Him (Hos. 4:6). This will be an example of fall from grace.

The reject will end up as a candidate of the second death in eternity (Reference Sketch in Chapter One or Home page of http://ctlr.pw

In spite of the foregoing, grace which is of the righteousness of God and which came through Jesus (John 1:17) is portrayed in different light in Christianity.

Read more about grace by clicking here.

When God created Adam (men) He clothed him in righteousness. This suggested he was to live forever. But he chose death as seen previously. The consequences is now well known to all.

Now that God has for the sake of His name showed mercy upon man through the propitiation of His son Jesus, He again warned that we should be mindful not to fall from grace to the beggarly self-righteousness of the law or paganism (Gal. 5:4).

To fall from grace depicts the choice of self-righteousness. This is to resort to the law, or paganism (Rom. 1:23-32).

Right from the Old Testament, scripture made it known that if the once righteous backslides to unrighteousness his obedience in the past will be forgotten. As a result he would die (Ezekiel 18:24) in the like way of Adam in Eden.

Whoever is under grace is like a branch of the tree. The connection is permanent. Otherwise it will not bear fruits (John 15:4). It will instead dry up and be thrown into fire (John 15:6). This is the exact fate of a man who believes on Jesus, corresponding to the branch and tree respectively. So disengagement permanently from the source of feed and the consequences means fall from grace. Without abiding in Christ man will be starved of the wisdom and knowledge of God to live an upright life.

So, it is doubtful to believe that a man who once received righteousness or born again of one man (the spirit) out of three men (spirit, soul and body) that make up the whole cannot lose the status. Verses like (1Thes. 5:10; Eph. 1:13-14, Rom. 8:38-39, Heb. 8:10-12 and more) are quoted to support this position.

The heroes of once saved is saved forever often defend the position that scripture will be contradicting itself if the verse, (Gal. 5:4), is read to mean a man can lose his once received righteousness or salvation.

Is this argument really true?

According to (1Thes. 5:10), “… Who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.”

Remark: The scripture teaches that to be awake is to walk in the light as Jesus is in the light (1John 1:7). This is to believe on Him. Conversely, to sleep is to die in the mortal sense (Acts 13:36). In either case it requires believing on Jesus both when awake and before sleep to live with Him. So neither situation contrasts falling from grace which verse (Gal. 5:4) described.

Verse (Eph. 1:13-14) states that; “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.”

Remark: The part of man as a whole that has been sealed until Judgment Day is the new creation spirit alone. Moreover, the spirit is own by Christ and not the man to whom God have given. It is by the spirit that Christ lives in man while he lives by the faith of the Son of God (Gal. 2:20). The implication is that man requires to be upright with Christ who is light. Otherwise if man who once received him falls from grace (into darkness) and would not repent He will retract the spirit because light and darkness will not co-exist (2Cor. 6:14). So the verse does not contrast falling from grace as described at verse (Gal, 5:4).

Verse (Rom. 8:38-39) declared that; “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ”

Remark: This simply means that the love which God have for man is permanent at all times; whether in death, or life, or when under affront by the powers of darkness.

This also has not contradicted falling from grace as described at verse (Gal, 5:4).

Heb. 8:10-12; “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, they shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord, for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

Remark: The forgiveness which God assured man here pertains to the sins and atrocities which man committed before the sacrifice of Jesus (Rom. 3:25).

Without doubt, the commentaries that say falling from grace has no consequences on somebody who backslides, after he has once received the righteousness of God suggest deception. This is because a thorough study of scripture with unbiased mind, but by guidance of the Holy Spirit showed there are no contradictions throughout.

The conclusion is that certain people have fixation of mind regarding once saved, saved forever. This is not what scripture says.

All the warnings to flee unrighteousness in the New Testament are directed to those who believe on Jesus (Gal. 5:19-21; 1John 2:16-17; etcetera). Similarly are the consequences. This suggests that many people have not really understood what righteousness of God is. It is examined later in the book; ‘Doomed Christianity and Unshakable Lifeline’… look out for when it will be released at www.christthelordreign.com and make order. It will be a bolt from the blue in Christianity.

Beware of false gospels who parade the opinion of man, leading to destruction.

On the Day of Judgment there will be no acceptable excuse. This is because scripture has given everybody the options of choice of life and death, or blessing and cursing: pleading that you choose life that both you and your seed may live. (Deut. 30:19).
