Hello, Audiences! My name is Dr. Danson Ubebe – Teacher and Author.

Welcome to Return to God Forum. We are glad to present the step-by-step transformation to born-again. Our goal is for you to know the truth. Only the truth you know, shall make you free (John 8:32).

So, we teach word-for-word witness of scripture. This is Episode 12, and the second of the series, titled; “Called to the kingdom of God.” The Episode focuses on finding the identity and functions of spirit, soul, and body and the step-by-step transformation to born-again.

Till now, many believers in Jesus worldwide appeared cowed to believe and please men and not God. For example, they believe the guesswork by man that “grace is unmerited favor.” Rather grace is “intercession by Christ for the Saints” (Rom. 8:34). This is revealed by scripture interpreting scripture. Knowledge of truth according to scripture is paramount to live the life in the flesh as a man who lives by faith in Christ (Gal. 2:20). Lastly, each one will give account to God of his life in the flesh (Rom. 14:12), even the dead who lived according to God in the spirit (1Pet. 4:5-6).

Our topic: Step-by-step regeneration to born-again–Ministry of Jesus, Part 2.

The objective is to open up what God has revealed about a man.

In our last episode, we learned how and why Jesus’ focus in His ministry was on the kingdom of God. Now to today’s teaching.

 

Finding identity and function of spirit, soul, and body and the step-by-step transformation to born-again. A man is a masterpiece made up of spirit, soul, and body (1Thes. 5:23). God created man (Gen. 1:27). But He formed the spirit within him (Zech. 12:1) and the body to cover him (Gen. 2:7). So, considering the mode of existence, it is clear the man created in the image of God is the soul. The spirit and body complete the likeness. In other words, the man was made to have the capacity to speak and to have a functional and liaison personality like God.

 

Emphasis. Regarding the three persons in man, what are the differences in identities or the mode of existence? We know it by examining the mode of making. To create is to bring something which never existed to existence. But to form is to mold existing things into the desired shape. It explains why the soul is the man created in the image and likeness of God. Now like begets like. So, the man or soul is a spirit because his origin which is God is a Spirit (Num. 16:22). It means the soul is who you are as a spirit – it gives a clear understanding of human structure. However, the exclusive spirit is the life, and pilot of the soul (Is. 57:16). So, he could lead the soul to truth, or to untruth. The body is the cartoon for the liveliness of man (Gen. 2:7)– (End). With regards to functionality.

 

The spirit of man, like the Spirit of God, searches the deep things of man (1Cor. 2:10-11). The spirit also functions as the link between the soul and other spiritual authorities. First, the spirit was loyal to God, who was the first husband of man (the soul) and He gave instruction to him as His wife (Gen. 2:17). Later man divorced Him (Is. 50:1) through his iniquities (Gen. 3:6-8). How? The spirit led man to disobey God (Gen. 3:6-8) by fornicating with the Serpent; the ruler of darkness, which the world under the sun is part of (John 14:30). Under the law, he leads men who know the law to marry the law (Rom. 7:1-6). Under grace, the new spirit leads disciples who live life in the flesh to marry Jesus by faith in Him (Gal. 2:20). This portrays the spirit as a matchmaker, so to speak. The old spirit is the evil who dwells in members of the disciple to do wrong, against the desire to do the will of God (Rom. 7:19-24). This is despite the new spirit of the Spirit of God given to a disciple (1John 4:13), not a bookish believer. The life-giving spirit of the second Adam is the law of the Spirit of life in Jesus which makes man free from the law of sin and death (Rom. 8:2).

 

Emphasis. The spirit formed within man had the liberty to roam freely. But the life-giving spirit given to the new man is of the Spirit of God, created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness (Eph. 4:24). He is owned by Christ and will not mislead the soul. Rather he is our hope as an anchor of the soul in the Lord to stand before God (Heb. 6:18-20). It explains the pitot role of the spirit. Also, he is not equivalent to, nor a replacement for, the soul. So, to have a born-again spirit does not mean your soul is born-again in real terms. Not to know this, makes most people who believe in Christ claim that man is a spirit, he has a soul and lives in a body – such claim is wrong. With people’s mouths, the opinion of man which is a lie is presented and promoted as truth – It is the bane of Christianity; it testifies to how they worship God with their lips, but not with their hearts (Mt. 15: 8-9). End.

Regarding the body,

 

The body functions as the exterior cover, and the members as implement to do either righteousness or unrighteousness for the soul (Rom. 6:13). As Jesus is the tabernacle of God, so is the body the temple of the soul (1Cor. 6:19-20). (This was proven in a previous video). The body prospers as the soul prospers when it satisfies certain conditions. First is loyalty to God as his Maker. So, if God whose Spirit raised Jesus from the dead, dwells in him, He will also give life to his mortal body through the Spirit who dwells in him (Rom. 8:11). The authority of this Spirit is supreme to all sources of evil. So, neither illness nor problems can survive in your body, if really Christ dwells in you. It is what makes your body to be in good health, and less physical exercise (1Tim. 4:8). Regardless of the health of the body formed with the dust of the ground, he will eventually be changed to the body created by the word of God and made without hands (2Cor. 5:1). This is reserved as the last transformation to make each man wholly born-again in concrete terms, like the resurrected Christ Jesus (Phil. 3:21).

 

Emphasis. A man applies his five senses accordingly with the members of the body. So, he uses them as he wishes: lie, see, hear, and speak, eat, smell, feel, and deceive, and etc. So, the body is a tell-tale of the deceitfulness of the heart. For the body to prosper, the soul must first prosper (3John 2). And for the body to be in good health he must daily hear, obey and live as per the words of God (Prov. 4:20-22). It is then the man can practice pure and undefiled religion of love of God and others equally as he loves himself. And also render necessary help to the deprived for Jesus’ sake (James 1:27), and promote the course of the good news (3John 3-8). So, the rich and the poor labor alike. It is by this posture a man first seeks the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Mt. 6:33). Then God in His wisdom will give power to man to make wealth (Deut. 8:18). So, for a believer, the body prospers in divine things, and not in material things, which are free gifts from God. Any person can destroy the body of flesh (Mt. 10:28). End.

Now let us examine the soul:

The hopeless state man was in. All descendants of Adam inherited the sinful nature of his image and likeness (Gen.  5:3). So, man was in that state when Jesus came as the sins he committed previously. These were the sin of Adam as the image and likeness of God in Eden, and of the image and likeness of sinful Adam. Then, Jesus paid with His shed blood to save the soul God created upright in the beginning and not the soul of the image of Adam (Rom. 3:25). There is a mystery here. The soul was bought at a price with the soul of Jesus who God prepared in Him as the offer for sacrifice (Is. 53:10). Then God sealed those who have trusted and believed in Jesus Christ (those who have faith) with the Holy Spirit of promise. He is the guarantee of our inheritance, until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of the Lord (Eph. 1:13-14). Every such soul who hears the voice of Jesus is a church and a member of the body of Christ Jesus (1Cor. 12:12-27). So, the soul or church is the purchased possession (Acts 20:28).

 

Emphasis. In the crucifixion of Jesus, the mystery who came as the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6), to save the sinners; the lost souls, and to lead them to the kingdom of God (Mt. 9:13), the image and likeness of sinful Adam, together with the soul of Jesus prepared for sacrifice was destroyed as the body of sin (Rom. 6:6). But only God can kill the body and the soul in hell (Mt. 10:28). It means the destroyed body of sin (though disarmed) still hangs as the evil spirit in members of the saved to oppose his desire to do the will of God (Rom. 7:19-24). The crucifixion of Jesus for our offenses was the justification for God to save the human race together as one body (Rom. 4:25). The resurrection of Jesus for our justification was the reason to give grace to mankind for his once sanctification (Roman 1:4), which is a divine blessing to grow spiritually by the word of God (1Tim. 4:5). Mankind which includes everybody is the man God sees in Christ, as you and I. So, it is required of every person who lives a life in the flesh to first trust and believes in Jesus to be saved. Then he will through Christ receive grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His namesake, and for His word to spread universal (Rom. 1:5). For this purpose, man requires daily sanctification to be able to imitate Jesus in the manner of His life trial (1Pet. 2:20-21). Before the advent of Jesus, some worshipped idols; the member of death on earth. Some were under the law. But Jesus became poor that through it we might become rich (2Cor. 8:9). This is to be rich in knowledge of Christ in us; the hope of glory (Col. 1:27, Rom. 9:23). (End). Now,

 

What is inheritance? It is the stature of the heir of God and of the joint-heir with Christ. Only those who suffer with Him and endure to the end will receive it (Rom. 8:16-17). The soul being the principal man, bears the sins the three persons in man commit (Ezek. 18: 21). So, it is the soul who glorifies God in his body and his spirit (1Cor. 6:20). Also, it is the soul who returns to a dead body to revive it (1King 17:21-22). This reinforces the soul as the man created in the image and likeness of God.

To walk like Jesus, a man is reminded by the Spirit of truth who dwells in him to fix his antenna on Christ and to imitate Him. It is only then; he could walk like Him by faith – trust and believe in the words of truth. It is like how Peter set his eyes on Jesus to walk on water. A loss of focus will attract adverse consequences as it happened to Peter (Mt. 14:22-31). A frequently asked question is this; If Jesus had saved man, why is it still necessary for everyone to believe in Him to be saved?

 

Emphasis. To answer the question, recall that Jesus saved the godly and ungodly. So, it is necessary for everyone to make own choice of either life or death (Deut. 19:30). This will absolve God and other persons from blame about where you finally end up in eternity. As a result, those who accepted oneness with Jesus and were baptized into His suffering, death, burial, and resurrection would be known and separated from those who denied Him (Mt. 25:31-34). It is what justified the renewal of the saved souls to the image of the Lord (2Cor. 4:16). This is the new creation; like born-again Christ (Col. 1:18). The change begins from the inside out. It is when the saved man attains the stature of living stone to fit into the inheritance that he is born-again in real terms (1John 3:2-3). It is the process to gather into one in Christ (Eph. 1:10).

It is a reversal of how each person came out of Adam.

To receive salvation of the soul is the last bus stop of faith (1Pet. 1:9). Inheritance is the substance of things hoped for; which is our faith (Heb. 11-1). If you do not know this, you are likely to be on the Broadway way to ruin. End.

 

Road to born-again by faith. The journey begins the moment you first believe in Jesus as your Savior (Acts 16:31). By it, the old man of image and likeness of Adam would suffer instant ruin, and the man of the image of God is bought with a price (Is. 53:10). Then God will adjudge the soul He created in His image justified. The soul will be seen as who has never committed sin. God will next give a new heart and the Spirit of truth to dwell with and in the man (John 14:17). As Jesus is the truth, the Spirit of truth is the Spirit of Christ who now lives in you, as born-again (Gal. 2:20). From that moment, the life the saved soul lives in the flesh will be the life of Christ by faith in Him. But if he draws back, God will not have desire in him (Heb. 10:38). Now the saved soul (inner man) is being transformed into the same image of the Lord from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord (2Cor. 3:18). It is by the regeneration the soul prospers (3John 2). It is after the soul is fully regenerated that he is born-again in real terms. Then he cannot sin for the seed of God, who is Christ (1Pet. 1:23), is in him (1John 3:9). Ordinarily, the soul prospers when he imitates the Spirit of truth. The soul which agrees with the Spirit walks according to the Spirit and is guaranteed of no condemnation (Rom. 8:1). Until a believer is an inheritance in real terms, he is only born-again by faith (Heb. 11:1). Can you see why nobody has received the righteousness of God in real terms? He is still a thing of hope by faith (Heb. 11:1). Don’t be deceived by self-acclaimed preachers – popular or unpopular. So, be wary about how you see yourself as born-again. It could make you complacent and to reject the knowledge of the truth.

 

Emphasis. Pride and impatience make earthly man to play down faith as the substance of things hoped for. As a result, faith for eternal substance (Heb. 11:1) is seen as the same for earthly substance by prayer (Mk. 11:22-24).

If you already have the substance, it is no longer of faith. If you know this, why parade in the flesh as born-again, and as the righteousness of God when you have not attained the stature of the inheritance: spirit, body, and soul (Phil. 3:12)? It shows ignorance of who the man is, besides being a spirit. The danger is complacency and lack of drive to seek and know the truth. Rather it makes you walk among the multitude on the Broadway to destruction (Mt. 7:13-14), focusing on worldly gain, contrary to scripture (Mt. 6:33). End.

Hello, Audiences! Welcome to Return to God Forum. Our goal is for you to know the truth. Our messages are exact witnesses of scripture. If they fall on deaf ears, you have nobody else to blame. This is Episode 11. It is the beginning of a new Series, titled; “Called to the kingdom of God.” We will start with solving certain puzzles in the ministry of Jesus. It is an amazing learning experience.

My name is Dr. Danson Ubebe – Teacher and Author.

Our topic for today is: Puzzles; Jesus’ ministry – Part 1.

Our objective is: To focus our labor with Christ on the kingdom of God.

 

The Ministry of Jesus is to prepare man to know the pathway to heaven. So, Jesus focused His teaching and preaching on the kingdom of God. Why? The kingdom belongs to God. She is not among the things revealed; which belong to man (Deut. 29:29). The kingdom is new and is peculiar; different from the world known to man.

Additionally, the kingdom is everlasting. She is not about eating and drinking but; righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost (Rom. 14:17). Jesus promised to go and prepare a place; mansions, for those who believe and follow Him; for He is the way to the kingdom (John 14:1-6). God is the king and ruler of the kingdom. His authority is absolute.

Other authorities in and outside the kingdom are below His rank. For example; He is head of Christ, and Christ is head of man, and man is head of the woman (1Cor. 11:3). All things in the kingdom have spirit structure, and the realm is within you (Lk. 17:21). This is the outline of the kingdom revealed to man.

 

Emphasis: For an introduction, Jesus tailored His ministry to guide man to fit into the kingdom. It is a place where man’s effort is not required to get things done. For example, Jesus in the flesh needed a door to enter a closed room.

But after His resurrection, He could enter a closed room without entrance (John 20:19). So, only those who believe and abide in Jesus will receive from Him nutrients to produce fruit of repentance, agape love, and etc. (John 15:4-5), and to be like Christ (1John 3:2). Against desires for earthly things, let your labor produce fruit of the spirit as treasures you require to store in heaven (Mt .6:20-21).

As God is the absolute authority in the kingdom, so is His word the final authority on earth. So, it is unbelief to believe the imaginary opinion of man over His word. It is said that Christianity today is mostly run according to the opinion of man.

 

The faith of the new covenant. Abraham is the father of faith. It was based on blind belief. The law was our tutor to make us have faith acceptable to God (Gal. 3:24). What is the difference between faith under the old and new covenants? The things revealed, belong to man. They do not require faith to believe. For such things, scriptures fully clarify them.

For example, under the old covenant faith was based on Him for His wonders. In error, it was embraced in the new covenant. For example, in the eucharis. But eucharis belongs to man. So, how the bread and wine at eucharis are actually the body and blood of Jesus, does not require faith to believe. For the substance; the body, which is the ‘truth’ has been revealed.

We no more hope for the evidence of the things. According to scripture, Jesus is the truth (John 14:6). So, the bread and wine intake at eucharis represent the actual body and blood of Jesus respectively (John 6:53-56). But you need understanding. (View video of proof at http://youtube.com/c/returntogodforum – Title: Fake against Jesus built church; Episode 9). Jesus’ crucifixion ended His ministry. It climaxed the reign of sinful nature and unveiled the dawn of grace for our common, and daily salvation, and hope for everlasting life. So, the “cross of Jesus” is the object of faith in God under the new covenant.

But believers still carry about the born-again spirit who submits to God, and sealed by Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13-14), tied to the soul and body of flesh opposing the spirit (Rom. 7:14-25). This is the predicament of believers. Until the flesh submits to God for the devil to flee (James 4:7), there wouldn’t be a bodily born-again man like resurrected Christ from the dead (Col. 1:18).

 

Emphasis. Every message not comprehensively supported by the word of God is a lie. So, it is a lie to believe the bread and wine in-take at Lord Supper (eucharis) transform in turn to real body and blood of Christ – unexplained! It is also not true eucharis is a mere ritual.

Unless you know the real rock, on which Jesus built His church, you cannot grasp the life of the Lord’s Supper. The message of the cross of Jesus and Him crucified (1Cor. 2:2) is the reason for our faith in God.

It is what guaranteed our total salvation. Wrong knowledge is like putting the wrong foot forward. It makes scripture be seen in a different light; which is unprofitable to a child of God. Instead, it leads to destruction (Mt. 7:13).

For example, if you do not know the basic knowledge of grace, of truth, of rock Jesus built His church, of the kingdom of God, of life of eucharis, and etc., of what use is your teaching and preaching? Regarding the predicament of believers, the overbearing lust of the flesh (soul and body) makes man to override godly desires by the spirit with selfish desires of the flesh in our hearts (Gal. 5:19-21) – DEMO VOICEOVER. It is your desire that makes you to do evil. It is neither God nor the devil (James 1:13-14).

 

Let’s examine; Model of three persons in one and the kingdom of God within man. As spoken by God, man is three persons in one (Gen. 1:27). These are: the spirit, soul, and body (1Thes. 5:23). How then is the kingdom within man as claimed before? The answer is in solving the puzzles: ‘Quote.’ “The kingdom of God is within you (Lk. 17:20-21).” And, “But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Mt. 10:28).” ‘Unquote.’

To explain the claim, God begot man. So, his heart was of the same kingdom of; righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost – the fruit of the Spirit of the light of God.

But sin separated our hearts from it (Is. 59:2). So, our hearts became deep darkness like the deep in the beginning (Is. 60:2). Now by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection, God restored the kingdom when He shone in our hearts to shine the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus (2Cor. 4:6). It means the kingdom of God is the manifestation of the fruit of the spirit (Gal. 5:22-23).

It explains the statement that as Christ is, so are we who walk in this world according to the spirit (1John 4:17).

Also, to fear God is an affirmation of His utmost rank, and Jesus’ loyalty to Him. For Jesus came, not to kill, but to save man, as it is written (Mk. 2:13-17).

Only God has the power to forgive, or condemn who strays from His statues; like David, when he ate the showbread (Mt. 12:4).

Also, by sacrifice of Jesus, God forgave man the sins he committed before (Rom. 3:25). So, He was raised because of the justification His sacrifice once earned for humanity once too (Rom. 4:25).

 

Emphasis. As shown in the voiceover, the kingdom is expressed in the virtues of God, not in an environment (Lk. 17:20-21). Jesus did not come to create a new soul.

He lacked own power to do so. Whoever believes in Christ will be saved (Acts 16:31). Then he will be given the spirit of God (1John 4:13), who will receive one time sanctification, which resurrection of Jesus guaranteed for man. So, he walks daily according to the spirit and no longer according to the flesh (1Cor. 6:11). But the soul and body still struggle with flesh and require daily sanctification to walk in the spirit. It is sustained by the grace of God, which is the intercession of Christ for the saints (Rom. 8:34) – DEMO VOICEOVER. Only those who fear God and endure to the end shall escape His wrath (Mt. 24:13).

 

How do you explain the puzzles; Jesus came to save man (Mk. 2:13-17), yet he was crucified with Christ (Gal. 2:20), and who is the man God created in His image (Gen. 1:27)?  Every man was baptized into His death and resurrection (Rom. 6:3-11). For this purpose, God prepared the soul of Jesus as the second Adam (1Cor. 15: 42-9) for offering as sin sacrifice (Is. 53:10). He was made sin for sinners (2cor 5:21). John testified to this when he identified Him as the Lamb of God (John 1:29). So, it’s the soul of Jesus who died for His friend to be saved (John 15:13).

By it the soul God created was baptized into His death and resurrection. Both were raised together as born-again, similar to water baptism. But the man raised with and in Christ stands for humanity. Now each being is of the likeness and image of Adam (Gen. 5:3). So, he must first believe in Christ to be saved (Acts 16:31). Next, is to race to Him together with people of like mind, as living stones; being built up a spiritual house (1Pet. 2:5). God is a Spirit, so is the soul. Therefore, the soul is a spirit because his Maker is a Spirit (John 4:24). So, the man we regard as a spirit is the soul. That is, you are a soul; like the seed of grass which survives when the shoots wither.

 

Emphasis: Many are deceived to think the born-again spirit, which God gave at the moment they believed, made them born-again. So, they align with man’s opinion of the west that; “man is a spirit, he has a soul, and lives in a body.” Was it the spirit or soul who sinned and died? Check it out at (Ezek. 18:20-21).

So, who is the man God told not to eat the fruit (Gen. 2:17)? In real terms, each man of flesh is outside Christ. So, the righteousness of Christ was not ingrained in him when he believed, for he has a process to first go through – to work out the salvation of his soul (Phil. 2:12).

It is unlike the in-built sin in the seeds of Adam, for humanity was in his loins when he sinned. It was how he could multiply (Gen. 1:28). With the salvation of man’s soul, he will receive a crown of the righteousness of God (2Tim. 4:8). So, how are you the righteousness of God now, besides by faith? If it is by faith, it is a thing hoped for (Heb. 11:1).

 

Why do water baptism? We do water baptism to demonstrate rejection of the image of Adam (Gen. 5:3), and to embrace Jesus. The exercise is to complement our belief in Him, in our hearts. So, it involves both the inner and outer man. It is the forerunner to the baptism of man by Holy Spirit into the death, burier, and resurrection of Jesus (Rom. 6:3-13).

 

Emphasis. Water baptism is the public denial of the old way of life for a holy life. Jesus is our example (Mt. 3:15). To stand in water, depicts the decision we made in our hearts. Immersion; buries the past. Rise out of water signals choice to imitate Jesus, as He imitated God (John 5:19).

Introduction. Hello Audience! Welcome to RTGF TV program. This is Episode 9 of the ROOT Series; “know the truth and enter by the door before He is shut (Rev 3:7-8).” Our title today is: Revealed! The Church Jesus established. To worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:24) requires revelation knowledge of the rock Jesus build His church on, and the character of the church (Mt. 16: 13-20).

 

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

Topic. Understanding the; rock, truth, and church.

Objective: To lay a sound foundation for the worship of God.

 

On decoding the riddle of the rock, the truth which came through Jesus, and the church Jesus built on the rock, we found them interwoven. They are of the Spirit and of Christ Jesus known according to the Spirit (2Cor. 5:16). Thus, the Lord Jesus Christ is the universal head of His church. He never committed Himself to man for He knows all things (John 2:24-25)

 

So, what are the rock, truth, and church?

A wrong diagnosis of the rock will produce wrong results. Figuratively, Jesus is the Rock (1Cor. 10:4) – ref. insert. Physical Rock is made up of units of rock. So, what is Jesus made up? The answer is the rock Jesus build His church on. Till now, two major schools of views about what the rock is, exist – The Catholics and Non-Catholics. What are their views?


Catholics’ views:

* According to Catholics, Peter is the rock. But is contrary to scripture. How?

– The rock is a unit of the build of Rock which Jesus is. So, rock portrays the body of Jesus.

– But Peter is a creature, prevented by death from continuing in office, like the priest under the law (Heb. 4:23-24).

– Also, Peter means Petros; a piece of stone, which is different from rock – see inserts.

– Though, Jesus made Peter overseer of His sheep (John 21:17), He did not commit Himself to him (John 2:24-25).

So, Peter is not the rock Jesus meant.

 

  1. Non-Catholics’ views:

*They believe the rock is the pronouncement that: Jesus is the Christ; the Son of the living God.

– But this was not a new revelation, for the bible had said so: “…You are My Son, today I have begotten You” (Ps. 2:7); Also, God said: “… For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (Lk. 2:11).”

– But they are close, except rock refers to body precisely.

– So, Non-Catholics’ views are not the rock too.

If the views of both schools are wrong, what is the rock? If we can find the rock, we can find the church He promised to build on it. To do this, we need to know what God revealed to Peter, and then compare the relationship between the Rock and Jesus.

 

Finding the rock.

– In the physical, units of rock build the Rock – insert.

– God affirmed to Peter what the bible already disclosed.

– So, the revelation is an affirmation of scripture that Jesus is the ‘truth’ (John 14:6). Jesus kept the disclosure secret from the public till after His resurrection (Mat. 16:20).

The reason is that it was not the appointed time for them to know.

   Moreover, it helped Him to avoid the prying eyes of authority on branding Him as an impostor of the son of David and of the king of the Jews.

– It means Jesus is the living Stone rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him who believed Jesus;

disciples of Christ, who like living stones are being built into a spiritual house (1Pet. 2:5), which is the truth God

revealed to Peter.

– So as units of the “rock” form the body of the Rock, so entities of “truth” form the body of Christ – ref. insert.

So, truth is the rock Jesus sworn to build His church on.

This is wow! It clears every uncertainty about what Jesus meant by; “Quote.” “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Man and drinks His blood, you have no life in you…. “This is the bread which came down from heaven.… (John 6:53-58). “Unquote.”

 

  1. But what is truth?

– Truth is alive word that comes out of the mouth of

God. E.g. Jesus (John 1:1, 14). By the way the word Jesus Christ speaks to us are spirit and they are life (John 6:63).

But the natural man cannot perceive the things of the Spirit of God because they are spiritually discerned (1Cor. 2:14). To bridge the gap Jesus Christ gave the Holy Spirit to the man (John 20:22). Thus, the Holy Spirit reveals the things of God to the spirit of man. Therefore, whoever hears and abides in the voice of Christ Jesus is truth. What is revealed to man is for him to build on the foundation of who is Jesus Christ, and which is the tradition Paul laid (1Cor. 3:9-11). This stands Paul out as the father of grace (1Cor. 4:15). Paul was indeed the uniting apostle as Peter also testified to (2Pet. 3:15).

 

Now that we know both the rock Jesus promised to build His church on is and what is truth, our next task is to find what the church is.

 

  1. Finding the church Jesus built on truth.
  2. Jesus incarnated to bear witness (Is. 55:4) to the

fulfillment of the law (Mt. 5:17) and to testify to:

  1. the truth and
  2. make truth known as the new covenant in His blood that whoever is of truth hears His voice (John 18:37).
  1. Everyone who hears and believes in the word of truth is of God (John 8:47).
  1. But whoever is of God is the sheep of Christ, and the sheep is His body (John 10:27).
  1. According to scripture, the body of Christ is known as the Church – The hearer of the voice of Jesus who is His sheep (John 10:27-28). The sheep is who follows and abides in Him. He depicts human face to truth as a living stone, and is the object of church of Christ Jesus.
  1. So the church of Christ is known by morals, not edifice.
  2. Moreover, 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).
  1. It means truth is the common cup of communion of the blood of Christ and the bread which we break as the communion of the body of Christ at the Lord’s Supper or Eucharis. So, believers worldwide are one bread and one body and partake of the same one bread – the truth (1Cor. 10:16-17).
  1. To follow and believe in Christ is a type of communion in letters (John 6:35).
  1. A man is said to eat the Lord’s Supper unworthily if He does not know the purpose of the church and the faithfulness of believers’ oneness in Christ (1Cor. 11:27-31). So, it requires the pure heart to eat the Lord’s  Supper a pure heart.
  1. If we know the truth, it will make us free and be one sanctified by the word of God (John 17:16-21).
  1. Thus the church of Christ is the incarnation of the truth which came through Jesus (John 1:17).
  1. The church represents the human face of the way, truth and the Life; who Jesus is – exhibited by first Century disciples and were first called Christians for they walked like Jesus (Acts 11:26). The gathering of churches, emphasizes our oneness in Christ Jesus.
  1. In conclusion, truth is the pillar of faithfulness to our-oneness in Christ Jesus. It is the similar way grace is the pillar of our salvation

 

The church is personified by godly morals. Only the word of God is revered. Every member is equal despite personal status and there is no difference (Gal. 3:28-29). No place for regulations and rules of men (Col. 2:20-23). All obey scripture to agree and speak with one voice (1Cor. 1:10) and to work in unity and care for one another, looking on to Jesus Christ alone (Acts 4:32-37).

Hello Audiences! Welcome to RTGF. It is scary people do no study scripture. You born again! How? It is shocking to hear even from frontline preachers that people are born again with earthly body. Yet none has the qualities of resurrected Jesus. He is the only known and proven first born again from the dead (Col. 1:18).

Certainly man (humanity) has been born again by the word of God. But not together with earthly body (1Pet. 1:23-25). Hence individual has a race to run to realize the stature of born-again man in Christ. This is Episode 6 of the ROOT Series – Titled: “Know the truth and enter by the door before He is shut (Rev, 3:7-8).”

Besides living in covenant with truth you will not be free (John 8:32). No matter your standing in Christianity. My name is Dr. Danson Ubebe – Teacher and Author. Our topic for today is: Significance of empty tomb to born again (Mt. 28:5-6).

Aim: To loosen the processes of born again for clear understanding.

Jesus said to Nechodemus: “Most assuredly, I say to you, “Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (John 3:3).” It suggests man was originally in like manner. Again, He said: “Most assuredly, I say to you, “unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God (John 3:5).” In the beginning God made the outward man (the body) with mud – A mixture of dust of the ground and earth water (Gen. 2:6-7).

In contrast the body of born again is made with pure water (Heb. 10:22). This water symbolizes baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38). The baptism signifies the word of God (Acts 11:16). The substance of the word is the glorious body (Phil. 3:21).

This is the body of born-again man. The old and new body are alike because of the shared element of water, though one is dirty and the other is pure. They are dissimilar because the old body was of water with molecules and made with hands. But the new is of water without particles and made without hands (2Cor. 5:1).

Inner man of both is of Spirit origin (Gen. 1:27; 1Pet. 3:4). It means until body of flesh dies and, or changed to glorious body and arise no man will be born again apart from by faith. Empty tomb of buried and risen Jesus is our example. It is not a thing of prayer where you believe you have received it by faith (Mk. 11:22-24).

So, to claim to be born again with earthly body is another evidence of how the people of God are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hos. 4:6). Neither the spirit, nor soul, nor body alone is a complete man God created. All three must be perfect to be born again.

Intervention of God in man’s life. At appointed time, God demonstrated His love for man. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).” God sent His Son to the world not to condemn it, but that it might be saved through Him.

It is on this premise the process of born again begins. First step is believed in Jesus to be saved (Acts 16:31). This step unshackles man from prison of Satan. Then God gives to him of His Spirit (1John 4:13). In the Spirit dwells the Holy Spirit who is sole anointing and teacher (1John 2:27).

Then he begins the race to attain the stature of perfect man sited in Christ (Eph. 2:6). Though we are kids of God it has not been shown what we shall be (1John 3:2). Till we endure to end of race and be perfect man (1Thes. 5:23), born again state like risen Christ (1John 3:2).

Literally believe in Jesus is what is required, not literary believe. So, to be saved and have Holy Spirit dwell in man is a step to born again. WOW!

To parade with earthly body as born again sends wrong message to uninformed for they know you will die. So, it is unproductive for fishing more souls to Christ.

Christ according to the Spirit was once like man according to the flesh. When Jesus according to the flesh became the sins, man committed in the past He bore them in His body (1Pet. 2:24). At last He was crucified and buried for the previous sins man committed (Rom. 3:25).

In His death, the Spirit of God changed the dead body of flesh to a glorious body. Next, He resurrected Him as the first born again from the dead (Col. 1:18). But since Jesus and man were of one body, the Holy Spirit if He dwells in you, will also give life to your mortal body (Rom. 8:11).

Meanwhile the soul is being renewed by the Spirit of the Lord with full cooperation of man (2Cor. 4:16). Then transformed into the same glory of the Lord (2Cor. 3:18).

Thus, as He is so are, we in this world (1John 4:17). Though we regard one another according to the spirit (2Cor. 5:16), we live with the body of flesh.

So the task is for the spirit man to live life of spirit with the body of flesh. It translates to working out the salvation of own soul (Phil. 2:12).

Faith and work. Both Jesus and man according to the flesh suffered, died, buried and resurrected together (Rom. 6:3-11). However, man still lives with body of flesh. It’s the reason to run to Jesus to get rid of the body of flesh by faith in hope of being made perfect.

As you run, match your object of faith with corresponding work with body of flesh. Example; if the run by faith is about believe in your heart that to lie is sin, stop to tell lies – this is the equivalent work.

This is how to make members of the body function as Instrument of righteousness (Rom 6:13).

So the work is to drop every form of old habits which is baggage and of sin, and pick up godly habits and run with endurance (Heb. 12:1). It is equivalent to working out the salvation of own soul. Hence faith without work is dead (James 2:17). If you still carry on with old habits it means, you have believed literarily or bookish.

One must first die or taken up before the body of flesh will be changed to a glorious body (Phil. 3:21). That is when man is concretely born again in Christ. Without the process neither the soul will receive salvation, nor will the body of flesh be changed to that made without hands.

This is the tragedy of ignoring the gospel of the cross of Jesus, and Him crucified (1Cor. 2:2); to follow crowd, preachers of fable, of material prosperity, and the like.

The end of faith. Now man in the flesh walks by faith. Without it he cannot please God (Heb. 11:6). Once soul receives salvation man will receive the end of his faith (1Pet. 1:9). This is why scripture says that Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith (Heb. 12:2). It means a perfect man does not walk by faith.

So mortal man is not perfect. Instead lives by faith in hope to attain stature of perfect man in Christ (Ref. Insert). This was demonstrated in Episode 2 of this series with the rock on which Jesus built His church. So, it remains for man to imitate Jesus and endure to the end, to be born again – spirit, soul and body (1Thes. 5:23).

Objective Sign of Salvation. What climaxed and accomplished why God incarnated in the body of flesh is the object of salvation. The Lord Supper is purposed to keep man in remembrance of this objective. It is not the object. Rather the cross of Jesus and Him crucified is the object of salvation (1Cor. 2:2).

So, Jesus is the only way by which salvation is guaranteed. It is by the gospel of the cross of the Lord Christ Jesus the world has been crucified to man, and a true believer to the world (Gal. 6:14). It is by abiding in Him one walks in the Spirit like Jesus walked (1John 2:6).

If a man does not abide in Jesus, he cannot do anything fruitful before God (John 15:4-5). Those who abide in Him as a routine do the job of the gifts He gave to some men before He ascended. They are for them to equip the Saints. The gifts give them the privilege to receive revelation or in-depth biblical knowledge.

It is for the men to share to others for the purpose of lifting them up to same level of faith and knowledge of Christ, and so on (Eph. 4:12-13).

Comparing birth on earth in darkness with born again into Light: To be born again is similar in process to giving birth on earth. The earth is like the womb of a woman in the procedure.

To believe in Jesus is like conception in the womb. Like the foetus undergoes steady growth over time, likewise a believer transforms steadily in spirit, soul, and body. But God at once gives a believer of His Spirit (1John 4:13). This helps the soul and body to grow to maturity over time.

As the foetus grows to full baby in the womb and is lastly given birth on earth, and not in the womb, likewise fully transformed believer is born again into the kingdom of God, and not on earth short of righteousness (Rom. 9:28).

Conclusion: Now by evidence we know who is born again: He does not commit sin (1John 3:9), dissolves pass barrier, appear and disappear (John 20:19), is pure in heart, love everyone equally, cannot and will not lie and etc. Let no one deceived deceive you. Test every word you hear (2Tim. 3:13).

Nobody can know the truth unless revealed by the Holy Spirit. Truth is same under the sun and is affirmed by scripture and not opinion of man. So if you hear different views from different voices about same text contrary to scripture run to save your soul.

Hello Audiences! Welcome to RTGF. We are going to present to you the “living tabernacle”. It is an extract from a new book; “The Riddle” – 2021 release. Secret things revealed belong to man (Deut. 29:29). We do not require faith to know if Jesus was created, or not. God has revealed Him as the mystery to man (Col. 1:26). This is Episode 5 of the ROOT Series – Titled: “Know the absolute truth and enter by the door (who is Jesus) before He is shut (Rev, 3:7-8)”. If you do not know the truth, and live in agreement nothing else will make you free (John 8:32).

My name is Dr. Danson Ubebe –Teacher and Author.

Our topic for today is: An insight into the mystery of who Jesus is.

Aim: To prove Jesus is: living Tabernacle, fully God and fully Man; not created.

(Continue next with Insert – page 3).

(Cont’d after Insert) Ministry of Jesus; the Living Tabernacle.

Scripture revealed Him as: the Word, God, and the Son of God, and a Savior. Also man added He is the second person of God; which is lie. In His earthly ministry He taught and preached the message of the kingdom of God. Lastly the custodians of the Law of Moses falsely accused, tried and condemned Him to death. The body of Jesus known according to the flesh bore the sins of man when He became the sins man committed in the past (1Pet. 2:24). Finally He was crucified and buried. The Spirit of God changed the body of flesh to a glorious body and resurrected as born again (Mt. 27-28). He is our example of who has been born again (Col. 1:18).

On earth and in heaven The Trio God dwell bodily in Him (Col. 2:9). It testifies to scripture that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself (2Cor.5:19-21).

Post Resurrection.

Scripture stated that by the sacrifice of Jesus God forgave man sins he committed before (Rom. 3:25); A weighty statement. It means to henceforth obey God and live for righteousness, and not to obey man (Acts 5:29-31). Doing so is to fight the good fight of the faith (1Tim. 6:12). It debunks claim of some to be life righteousness of God, or born again with sinful body instead of by faith in Christ and living it. If no body made without hands man cannot be born again. Scriptures around pardon interpreted contrary to Jesus’ Cross denies scripture; and is saying Jesus died in vain. Sacrifice of Jesus saved humanity from slavery of Satan. It reconciled man to God (Rom. 5:11). He gives born again spirit to believers.

The spirit is for him to begin the race of life with the hope to attain perfection.

The man born again.

It is after fruitful race to the end man will be wholly born again into the new earth (Rev. 21:1, 14). It is in the similar manner The Spirit of God changed the body of flesh of Jesus to glorious boy the Holy Spirit, if He dwells in you, will give life to your mortal body (Rom. 8:11). This is because Jesus and man had same body according to the flesh. Therefore both suffered and died and resurrected together (Rom. 6:3-11). Hence as He is, so are we in this world ((1John 4:17). So we are to regard one another according to the spirit (2cor. 5:16). However earthly body of a person must first die. Only then he is given a new and glorious body to be a member of body of Christ, or of fully born again man in Christ (Phil. 3:21). For now the man totally born again in Christ symbolizes mankind. Individuals who believe in Christ live by faith in hope of attaining the stature of perfect man in Christ. Salvation of own soul brings an end to one’s faith (1Pet. 1:9). It means perfect man does not live by faith. So we must not be self-righteous about who we are in earthly body.

 

Risk of Self-righteousness and Account for life lived.

Faith is substance of what is hoped for; the evidence is not seen (Heb. 11:1). So it is needless to parade self in mortal body as born again. It remains for us to imitate Jesus and to endure to the end according to the flesh. We must believe Jesus and love one another like He loved God and man. So we will give account before Christ of our labor according to the flesh (2Cor. 5:10). It is similar to what those now in prison would do (1Pet. 4:2-6).

 

Task Christ gave to man.

But before He ascended to heaven, He gave gifts to men – Some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and some teachers. Then assigned to them specific tasks;

“to equip the Saints for ministry, for edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph. 4:11-13)”.

The Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven.

In heaven the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully Man. If we say we believe and do ungodly things in the flesh and not repent, it would mean we did not truly believe in the first place. Only men who abide in Jesus truly believe. Only them no one can snatch away from Jesus’ hands (John 10:28). Jesus is the visible God and the Great High Priest before the Throne of God the Father (Heb. 4:14-16). He sits on the right hand of God the Father (Mt. 22:44). He is our Intercessor (Rom. 8:34).  He expresses His intersession daily by grace (Eph. 2:8).

 

Self-evaluation.

So let us reason together: Are you doing the tasks Christ assigned? Do you walk in the spirit and not fulfilling the desires of the flesh (Gal. 5:16-17). The one message which reflects kingdom of God is of the cross of Jesus, and Him crucified (1Cor. 2:2). By it the world have been crucified to man, and those who truly believe in Jesus to the world (Gal. 6:14). Is it what you preach?

Those who obey Him speak with one voice and walk in unity (1Cor. 1:10). As a result all have one heart and one soul and freely share their riches (Acts 4:32-37). In your evaluation, do you know which direction and destination you are heading? Is it the wide and Broadway way which leads to destruction, or the narrow and challenging way which leads to life? (Mt. 7:1-14). Make amend if necessary.  Do it now!

 

Conclusion.

What we perceived as real heresy is to preach and teach messages different from scripture. It is not to differ from doctrines and regulations established by man. So biblical Knowledge is essential to live life of salvation. If all you know about Jesus is not by revelation knowledge directly or indirectly, you have not known Him. Rather you are believing in a lie. Jesus had same human attributes Adam without sin had. But Adam enslaved his soul to the serpent in the Garden of Eden. To save the soul once created in the image and likeness of God required sacrifice of a soul without sin who no man could provide (Ps. 49:6-8). So God prepared the soul of Jesus, as an offering for sin (Is. 53:10). At God appointed time Jesus was born on earth for the purpose of saving man (Lk. 2:1-7). That whoever believes in Him should be saved, and not perish; but have everlasting life.

The rest of the story was discussed earlier.

Hello Audiences! Welcome to RTGF, the platform for revelation knowledge. It is important for everyone to have vision of the journey of life to walk fruitfully to destination of choice. This is Episode 4 of the ROOT Series: Titled; “know the truth and enter by the door before He is shut (Rev. 3:7-8)”. You can find where to locate the door in Episode 1; Titled Grace; misunderstood till now – 2020AD.

My name is Dr. Danson Ubebe –Teacher and Author.

Our topic for today is: Died in Adam & born again in Christ & life after death.

Our aim is to equip you with basic outline of events in phases of life.

We do not teach ourselves. It’s the Holy Spirit who reminds us of the teachings of Jesus. Hence we are able to reveal hidden bible truth in unprecedented way. RTGF Episodes are revolutionary. Salvation is only guaranteed through the sole message of the cross of Jesus and Him crucified (1Cor. 2:2). It’s the cross who crucified the world to man, and those who truly believe in Jesus to the world (Gal. 6:14). To believe could be in vain if what it entails are lacking. – E.g. is to be blind to all worldly things bible hates. Also study the Holy Bible to know the truth about the past, the present and the future with certainty (Eph.1: 4-5, 7-9, and 9-14).

The past revealed creation of man made up of spirit, soul and body. The process was finalized on celestial earth (Gen. 2:7). God blessed them to be fruitful and to multiply and etc. (Gen. 1:28). Then He talented man’s loins with seeds of names written in the book of life before foundation of the world (Ps. 56:8; Mt. 3:16).

For man to live forever God forbade him to eat the forbidden fruit, else he would die. When he did, he died. So sin separated man spiritually from God and the inner organs physically from the glory of God (Isaiah. 59:2). How do we know? That Adam was covered by the glory of God is not in doubt. It was proven by the face of Moses which shone when he came down from the presence of God in Mount Sinai (Exodus 34:29-35). It exposed his nakedness. Then God blotted the names of man from the book of life (Ex. 32:33). He cursed him, shed animal blood to cover his sin and his nakedness with tunic of skin (Gen. 3:19; 21).

Everything Adam suffered infested the seeds in him. This is why man cannot undo his sinful nature by good works (Ps. 49:6-9; Rom. 8:3). Then God drove him as darkness from Eden across the firmament to earth of darkness (Gen. 3:24).  Previously God created the sun, the moon and the stars in the firmament to give it light.

The present received Adam as deep darkness when he arrived terrestrial earth of darkness (Is. 60:2). Later and in a bid to find God corruptible men made image of corruptible objects their gods (Rom. 1:23). It’s the origin of worship of idols. Even the law through Moses did not profit Israel because it was not obeyed (Heb. 4:2). However the arrival of Jesus ushered in the kingdom of God. The crucifixion of Jesus for our offences at the end of His ministry and His resurrection three days later for our justification, justified God to forgive man the sins he committed in the past (Rom. 3:25) So it is clear God did not forgive man present and future sins. This presupposes that man would obey Him thenceforth (Acts 5:29).

With the forgiveness mankind was born again by the word and was raised together with born again Christ from the dead (Col. 3:1). In principle the cross annulled all existing world religions. It was a new dawn for man, similar to Adam before he sinned. It restored service to God by pure and undefiled religion (James 1:27). This was the purpose for which God created man in the beginning (Rev. 4:11). Like God commanded Adam, now man is cautioned not to disobey the word, else he would not inherit the kingdom of God (Gal. 5:19-21). This means once a man believes he should abide in Christ to be fit for the kingdom of God (Lk. 9:62).

But some have rejected Jesus and continued the old way. Some who believe override the word of God with World views. Example; interpreting grace as unmerited favor against scripture evidence that though it is unmerited like every other gifts grace is the intercession by Christ Jesus (Romans 8:34) – proven by Episode 1. So two gates and ways now lie before man – One wide gate and Broadway which leads to destruction, and many go in by it. The second is the narrow gate and winding way which leads to life and there are few who find it (Mt. 7:13-14).

Now the man who lives according to God in the spirit sits with Christ in heavenly places (Eph. 2:6). But man also lives on earth according to the flesh. On earth it is impossible that offences will not come (Lk. 17:1). Therefore man cannot escape acts of sin. So he will give account for his present and future sins according to the flesh (1Pet. 4:2-6). The name of everyone who believed in Jesus as described previously and is adjudged saved by God is written in the book of life or of the righteous in THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS (Jer. 23:6).

The cross of Jesus is from where every scripture concerning promises of forgiveness of sins for salvation derives legitimacy. Example; “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” (Heb. 8:12). None of such scripture is in isolation of the cross, unless you are saying Jesus died in vain. In mortal body man lives by faith in God in hope of attaining the stature of perfect man in Christ (Phil. 3:12-19). The spirit, soul and body make up complete man and not spirit alone. People confuse this spirit with the spirit man is. He is not. All must be perfect to be born again like risen Christ. The Holy Spirit dwells in man as the guarantee of inheritance till the redemption of the purchased possession which is the soul (Eph. 1:11-14).

Now the new man lives by the spirit of God for Christ and not him (Gal 2:20). As man cannot avoid not to commit sin, God made repentance the way of escape from backslide (1John 1:9). Now all believers are in the race of life to attain fullness of perfect man, to the measure of the stature of Christ (Eph. 4:13) – ref. insert. It is necessary to lay aside every weight and sin which hamper the run (Heb. 12:1-2). Doing so is the way we work out salvation of own soul (Phil. 2:12). The inner man who is the soul is being renewed to the glory of Christ (2Corth. 4:16). The outward man will be the last to be born again as a glorious body of Christ (Phil. 3:21), made without hands (2Cor. 5:1).

The empty tomb of Jesus supports this assertion. So mortal body must first die before individual man is fully born again to receive the crown of righteousness of God in Christ (2Timothy 4:8). Proof of born again is ability to pass barrier and to appear and to disappear (John 20:19). Moreover the body would not die forever. Certainly no person on earth has these qualities. Now God who has delivered, is delivering and will deliver man till he is totally perfect (2Cor. 1:10). No doubt humanity has been saved and born again in Christ. But only those who believe are running independently in hope to be born again to the stature of the complete man in Christ Jesus.

 

Life after death is real. At mortal death components of man go to their relevant origins – the body to the grave to turn dust of the ground and the spirit to God who gave it (Eccl. 12:6-7) – The saved spirit to Paradise and the unsaved spirit to Hades till the Day of Judgment.

But who is this spirit? Scripture declared it is the soul who: is the man God created; sinned and died; is the inner man; within whom the spirit was formed; was restored; only God can kill, etc. So the soul is the man who is the image of God. The soul is a spirit because of his origin who is God and who is Spirit (Num. 16:22). You need to know this not to be deceived and deceiving people to enter by the wide gate and walk the Broadway which leads to destruction (Mt. 7:13-14). So when you talk of man or you know you are talking of the soul.

The dialogue between Abraham with the beggar in his bosom and the rich man confirmed the existence of Paradise and Hades. They are holding countries God prepared for the dead till the Day of Judgment (Heb. 11:16). It is this paradise Jesus assured the robber on the cross of. So those in paradise are in principle present with the Lord which Paul referred (2Cor. 5:8). It is from Paradise the dead in Christ who now wait for us to be made perfect together, will rise first (Heb. 11:40).

And the raptured from earth will join and meet Christ in the air and be judged (2Cor. 5:10) – ref. insert: They will receive glorious body (Phil. 3:21) made without hands (2Cor. 5:1). Their names will be affirmed in the book of life, and be given due reward. All men will be once born again to live forever in new earth in the kingdom of God – ref. insert.

All unbelievers from Hades and earth will face the White Throne Judgment. Those whose names are not written in the book of life, together with Hades and Death will be cast into the Lake of fire (Rev. 20:14-15) – ref. insert.

Hello Audience! Welcome to RTGF. It is a platform to teach revelation knowledge. Our advice to you is to draw near to the word of God and get knowledge rather than sacrifice. Abba Father we thank you for Christ’s intercession for us to open up scripture like first Century disciples. It is to equip those sanctified in Christ Jesus with revelation knowledge; for the work of the ministry, for edifying the body of Christ, till all come to the unity of faith and of the knowledge of Christ, to the perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. (Eph. 4:12-13). Pay attention to see and hear scripture speaks to you as you study scripture, or hear the word of God, or view it on screen.

My name is Dr. Danson Ubebe, teacher and author.

 

Our topic for today is: Why are we here? – Revelation of the beginning, and the spirit man is. It is the third Episode of the “Root Series” titled: Know the truth and enter by the door who is Jesus before He is shut (Rev. 3: 7-8).

 

Our aim is to draw your attention to foundation of the world because it is crucial for sound biblical knowledge.

 

It is written in (1Tim. 6:16) that God dwells in unapproachable light above the circle of the earth (Is. 40:22). God in His Word created the heavens and the earth in the beginning (Gen. 1:1). He stretched them out to dwell in (Is. 42:5). He also created the deep made up of the heaven and the things in it, the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it (Rev. 10:6). He made the sea, the earth and the spirit birthplace of things in them. They form the substance of things seen, which are shadows (Ex. 25:40). It was from them God called forth the things seen (Heb. 11:3). As God commanded each origin yielded its creatures; the sea (Gen. 1:20-22), the earth (Gen. 1:11-12), and the spirit of flesh (Gen. 1:26). It is for this reason man is a spirit and not because of born again spirit of God given to a believer (1John 4:13). God created other beings and things which belong to Him. Everything were in the realm of heaven and perfect as He is (Ps. 18:30). Lucifer rebelled and was cast to earth (Rev. 12:9). So what happened going forward?

 

Above circle of earth: The deep was created perfect within the earth God stretched out earlier to dwell in. The firmament divided the light and water above from the water and darkness below. Regarding the creation of man; male and female (Gen. 1:27), preachers often dance around this puzzle according to opinion of man. I hear load voices saying woman was created at once with the man in (Gen. 1:27). Yet God found out much later that there was no one like Adam. Therefore He saw the need to get a companion for him. But scripture is clear of who man is; image and likeness of God (1Cor. 11:7). In the Trinity, made up of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost (Mt. 28:19) there is no God the woman, nor mankind. Even after resurrection mankind will be like angel in heaven and there will be no marriage of male and female (Mt. 22:30). So God did not create female life in man. If He did he would have be different from the image of God. Rather He made created him to speak and breath in the image and likeness of three persons in one God; like begets like (Eccl. 3:11). Each man was made unique and then unified. As shown in the insert the spirit was formed within man (Zech. 12:1). This suggests it is not this spirit man is or who you are. Rather this spirit is own by the man God created and who scripture regards as the soul as it will be validated later.

Continuing with creation of man, God formed the body or outward man with mix of dust of the ground and of mist of sea water (Gen. 2:6-7). This can be collapsed into spirit and sludge (muddy water). It was similar to the born again of spirit and water –the difference is water for Adam had extra molecules and is natural. Moreover the body was made with hands. Whereas the body of born again is spirit and is made without hands (2Cor. 5:1). After God finished the components of man He breathed into the nostrils of man of dust and man became a living being – another speaking spirit – product of three origins of: spirit, and earth and sea.

Now this could be demonstrated as follows: The three persons in one man are: the soul at the middle and as the principal and coordinator with male contact points at two ends (1Pet. 3:4). The inner contact of the soul bonds with female of spirit man who is the lamp of God (Prov. 20:27). It is the spirit too who knows and searches the deep things of man (1Cor. 2:11). The outer contact of the soul bonds with female of the body or outward man whose members function as instrument of performance in the exterior undertakings (Rom. 6:13). All three must be born again at different times for man or you to be wholly perfect as a person (1pet. 1:9). So the man God created male and female; He created them means the three persons in one man were glued into one masterpiece in male and female or pin and socket union. The rationale for this covenant will be made clearer later. Meanwhile it eases the return of the components of man to respective origin at mortal death – the spirit to God who owns it and the body to the dust of the ground (Eccl. 12:6-7). Next God prepared the Garden of Eden on celestial earth, which is of the eternal realm.

Garden of Eden: 1. God put Adam in Eden to serve, which is the purpose God created man (Rev. 4:11). Certainly it was not for relationship which is the view of man; Philosophical attempt to override the word of God with opinion of man. He forbade him to eat fruit of tree of knowledge of good and evil, else he would die (Gen. 2:17). It was the only appointed time for men to die once before judgment (Heb. 9:27). This death was executed in Eden. It is unrelated to mortal death which happens at random and not once to all men as required by the declaration.

  1. To give man a companion God made woman from man and for man (Gen. 2:18, 21-23). The woman is the glory of man (1Cor. 11:7-10). This is the origin of relationship which involves mutual respect between partners.
  2. Adam disobeyed God’s first law. So he died as God laid down; separated spiritually and physically at the same time from God. How? The sin separated his spirit from God (Is. 59:2). It also detached his inner organs from the glory of God which had covered him as his outward look; symbolized by the veil of the temple (Ex. 26:33). So man behaved like the way serpent detaches its nature from its old skin. It was the moment man lost the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). Without any cover of his inward form he saw his nakedness. He realized he was no longer looking like God. So he was ashamed. It is in this nakedness man is born, dies, and returns to this day (Job 1:21).
  3. So God cursed Adam (Gen. 3:19) which included his return to the dust of the ground from where he came. This is what is fulfilled by mortal death. The taken up of Enoch alive to heaven (Gen.5: 21-24) & Elijah too suggest this. It means God do repent about the curse. But with regards to sin committed by Adam God does not forgive without bloodshed. Otherwise the sacrifice of Jesus would be in vain. Moreover mortal death does not separate man from God for he is born in the state of death or separation from God (Rom. 5:12).
  4. Blood introduced in man when He shed animal blood & made a tunic of skin to cover his nakedness (Gen. 3:21). Tunic of skin is type garment for glorious body at resurrection (Phil. 3:21). It is what is clothing man’s nakedness till new robe (Is. 61:10-11). Meaning the tunic of skin is the current outward look of man. God made blood the cover for sin and gave it for sacrifice. It’s the instant all nations of men on earth were made from one blood (Acts 17: 26). So it is the lack of knowledge that engenders pigmentation difference amongst peoples. Lastly He exiled sinful Adam into darkness, known as terrestrial earth; represented by (Fig. 3B) in insert.

For terrestrial earth, God created the sun, the moon and stars in the firmament to rule the Night in turn as day and night for sons of darkness (Gen. 1:14-18). The advent of Jesus awakened the sons of light and sons of the day (1Thes. 5:5). It equally revealed who God is. On Jesus’ part, He is the Word of God which went out of the mouth of God as “let Us incarnate”  as fully man and fully God in the flesh and it was so (1Tim. 3:16). It was similar to the declaration in the beginning of; let Us create man in Our image and likeness. So Jesus is the double of God based on the oath by Himself (Is. 45:23). It debunks the notion that Jesus is the second person in three persons in one God. Upon Jesus’ resurrection He sits as fully man and fully God at the right hand of God the Father. Thus He is the front view of God the Father (Lk. 22:69; Heb. 8:1). So to see Jesus either in the flesh or in the spirit is to see the Father (John 14:9). On the interior face of God, is the Holy Spirit as the living water (John 4:10). The water flows by breath of God (John 20:22). So God is unchanging constant (Mal. 3:6; James 1:17). He is enveloped by Christ in the front and complemented by Holy Spirit at the rear. This illustrates how God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself (2Cor.5:19-21).

In born again, there is no male and female because he has new spirit and body of God and not of him. It annulled the need for the union of male and female with the soul at the beginning (Gal. 3:27-28). It was the period man lived by his spirit and lived in his own body for himself. But now, a man baptized into Christ ceased to live for himself but have put on Christ and lives by life of Christ for Him (Gal. 2:20). The spirit now liable to only God helps man to work out the salvation of his soul (Phil. 2:12). It means the soul is the man Jesus came to save (John 3:16). Now the soul which has believed Christ is being regenerated and renewed to the image of His glory (2Cor. 4:16). Thus the soul is the man who is known as a spirit because of his origin which is God; the Father of spirit (Num. 16:22). After salvation he lives by the spirit of Christ for Him but in his body pending the grant to him of glorious body of Christ. As the spirit stays connected to God the soul prospers and is one with God (3John 2). God executes any word spoken by man and by his breath (Num. 14:28), similar to how He treats His spoken Word and His Breath (Is. 55:11).

It is in the context of oneness that a body bond to a harlot is one body with her (1Cor. 6:15-17). This is the biblical meaning of fornication against the opinion of dictionary definition. It represents separation from first love such as God and flirting with godless source; like Adam did in Eden (Gen. 3:6-8) and Israel did too.

Celestial and terrestrial earth are in different realms of life, and have different characteristics (ref. fig.) in insert.

We are here to experience life without God which man chose in Eden and to get second chance to receive eternal life which God promised (1John 2:25).

Our risen Lord; the first born again from the dead is our example of the promise (Col. 1:18). The promise has been fulfilled in Him with glorious body made without hands (2Cor. 5:1) for all men ((1Pet. 1:3). Like risen Christ he could dissolve pass barrier, and appear and disappear (John 20:26). Every believer is on a race to attain the stature of born again man in Christ. To be born again is a total change of nature of man from the old to the new. It takes stages for a person to attain the stature of the fully born again in Christ – first the spirit is born again, next the soul and finally the body. Do you still think you are born again as a person, perfect in your soul and mortal body like resurrected Christ? Can you dissolve pass barrier, appear and disappear as proof? That is food for thought for you.

Hello Audience! Welcome to RTGF TV program.  The Forum is known for her notable biblical clarifications by revelation knowledge. They speak to everyone who works with God, irrespective of status – Theologians, Pastors, Bishops, Evangelists, and etc. The purpose is for all to focus only on the cross of Christ and on the message of Him crucified (Gal. 6:14). In addition guard against addition to, & subtraction from God’s breath (Rev. 22: 18-19). Today we will continue with the “Root Series” titled: Know the truth & enter by the door before He is shut (Rev. 3: 7-8). For a recap, Jesus is the door. Anyone who enters by Him, he will be saved, and go in & out and find pasture (John 10:9). In Episode 1 God shown that grace is “intersession by Christ (Rom. 8:32-34).” This is something new against the prevalent interpretation of grace as “unmerited favor,” & etc. all of which suggest opinion of men. Now Episode 2 of the Root Series.

My Name: Dr Danson Ubebe

Our topic for today is: “Finding the church Jesus Founded.”

Objective: Though the topic might shock many we speak as we hear Christ speaks to equip you with revelation knowledge of the rock on which Jesus built His church and her identity.

Text: It is written that a wise man builds his house on the rock and it survives all ferocious rainstorm. But a house built on foundation of sand will fall when beaten by same rainstorm (Mt. 7:24-25). For the purpose unknown until now, Jesus asked His disciples: “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” (Mat. 16:13-14). Then the following dialogue issued: “But who do you think Am I?” Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Then Jesus replied, “Blessed are you Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, & whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, & whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Mat. 16:15-19). [In the context, the keys signify the Holy Spirit given to man (John 20:22-23). The gates of Hades shall not prevail signify death will not have dominion over the church (Is. 38:10)]. Christianity has since lived with the puzzle. But it has remained its unsung fiasco. How? Watch & find out.

Now which rock do you think Jesus spoke of? Was it Peter? Or the revelation that “He is the Christ, the Son of the living God?” Or something else? To date two main schools of thought exist: The views of Catholics and of Non-Catholics. Has any shed light on the riddle? Let us find out now.

The opinion of men is here represented by opinion of Catholics and non-Catholics.

Continue with Insert visual aid:

Now we know that opinions of men about the rock are wrong. So what is the rock? If exegesis of the rock is wrong the church built on it will be wrong; meaning the doctrine will be corrupt. If the rock was never considered before building a church, its purpose will be that of builder’s agenda. This is the origin of Christianity (Orthodox & Emerging) which lacks a rallying gift of God that unite those who call on the name of God and of Christ. The missing uniting gift is the rock Jesus referred. Only God who made all things, knows what they are (Is. 40:26). He reveals things which belong to men thru His word & His Spirit. It is by revelation knowledge, directly or indirectly, man can know natural things, and the purposes.

(Demo it with a book – front & back gages) – This is the worldwide position of things seen equally thru same prism or lens of God.

It is the root of the word; “absolute” in life situations.  It guarantees consistency and unambiguous certainty in the way the Maker designed and intended things to be.  It’s the source of right & wrong. Manufacturers follow the same process to produce product manual. This was the way God disclosed to Peter the identity of Jesus by letting him see Him through the same prism. The result is the absolute universal “truth” which came through Jesus.

Continue with Insert visual aid:

Finding the church Jesus founded. It is written that Jesus is the foundation laid for the building of the temple of God, which is His church, and the gospel of our salvation (1cor. 3:11). This followed His crucifixion on the tree (tagged the cross) for our offences and His resurrection three days later for our justification. Moreover, disciples are members of the household of God having been built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets, with Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone (Eph. 2:19-20). From God comes the truth by the Holy Spirit to man who imitates Christ. The truth according to the word of God is His power for man to continue in the doctrine and fellowship of the apostles, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers (Acts 2:42). It was for this purpose Jesus came to first witness the Law and the Prophets fulfilled and ended the old covenant.

Continue with Insert visual aid:

It is written Jesus is the Rock (1Cor. 10:4) – Explaining invisible with visible.

Union of units of rock = Rock. All are liable to it alone.             

                 Catholics

[1]. Believe the rock is Peter. Support with Jesus’ order to

Peter to feed His sheep (John 21:15-17).

[2]. Now Peter means stone (John 1:42).

[3]. Filth often separate stone from the Rock.

[4]. Also Peter is a creature and death prevented him from

continuing in office like priest under law (Heb.  7:23-24)

[5[. Sin separated Peter from Christ (Is. 59:2), until perfect.

[6]. So to build house on him is like to build on Sand base.

[7]. Therefore Peter is not the rock Jesus talked about.

[8]. God favored Peter for 2 reasons: * To Know who Jesus is, & * to preach Him to Jews, as Paul to Gentile {Gal. 1:16)

Non-Catholics

  1. Believe D rock is The Son of the living God (Mat. 16:16).

It is like to say an Ocean is huge body of water which is

a statement of fact. So it has not addressed the issue.

  1. 2. Thus their interpretation is not the rock Jesus meant.

So what is the rock Jesus referred?

[1]. Recall Jesus is the Rock (1Cor. 10:4). [2]. He is also the truth (John 14:6). [3]. Now the Rock is made up of units of rock. [4]. So each unit of rock is equivalent to truth which came thru Jesus. All together make up His body (Col. 1:18).

[6]. So the “truth” is the rock Jesus referred (John 14:6).

 

     Finding the church Jesus founded –God’s view

  1. Equally, Jesus came for the purpose to witness & testify to the incarnation

    of the truth and to make truth known for the New Covenant in His blood.

  1. Whoever is of truth hears His voice (John 18:37) & is subject to Him

alone, and not to another member of the body.

  1. Hearer of His voice is known as the church of Christ (John 10:27-28) & as well as His body which is personified in every member by godly morals.
  2. By ritual, the church is signified by the cup of blessing and the bread which

    we break in turn as the communion of the blood & of the body of Christ at the

    Lord’s Supper. For we, though many, are one bread & one body, for we all

    partake of the one bread (1Cor. 10: 16-17). The incarnate truth is the only

    universal bread & body of Christ common to all to eat in unity in communion.                      

  1. By letter, it is symbolized by believe in & follow or imitate Jesus (John 6:35).
  2. Who-ever lacks knowledge of the purpose for the meal & faithfulness of

    our oneness in Christ eats the Last Supper unworthily (1Cor. 11:27-31).

  1. It is only by the knowledge of the truth that we all may be one, sanctified by

    the word of God (John 17:16-21). This was Jesus’ prayer to God for us.

  1. Thus the church of Christ personifies: the way (through His flesh), the truth

    (which is the body) and the life (which is of Christ).

  1. Grace & truth are the two pillars of our salvation and faithfulness to our

    oneness in Christ respectively.                                                                 WOW!

 

Characteristics: Every member of the church walks like Christ, consistent with First Century disciples (Acts 11:26). The church of Christ is the personification of the truth. The church guarantees eternal life being the will of God for those who follow and believe in Christ Jesus (John 6:38-40). The medium of practice is known as pure & undefiled religion according to (James 1:27). It brings out the purpose of service for which God created man for His glory (Is. 43:7). It was same service by Adam (Gen. 2: 8), by Israel after deliverance from Egypt onward (Ex. 8:1), and by those who believe and follow Jesus to this day (John 4:24). So Christianity is a peculiar religion contrary to being a relationship currently promoted by man. The worship today is by faith and sacrifices of the lips (Heb. 13:15). In addition, help the deprived in their trouble and do not love the world and the things in the world. Living like Christ transforms man to a living stone of truth being built up a spiritual house (1Pet. 2:5). Every disciple walks with anointing of the Holy Spirit who teaches and reminds him of all things (John 14:26), and etc.

 

For contents the church focuses its doctrine on the cross of Jesus (Gal. 6:14) and the gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1Cor. 2:2). The cross crucified the world to mortality and saved all persons in situ. Conversely the cross crucified only those who believed to the world. By it God delivered them from power of darkness and conveyed them into the kingdom of Christ (Col. 1:13).

 

The church epitomizes godly morals. So only the word of God is revered. Every members are equal & are brothers & there is no difference (Gal. 3:28-29). No place for regulations and rules of men (Col. 2:20-23). All obey scripture to agree and speak with one voice (1Cor. 1:10) & to work in unity & care for one another (Acts 4:32-37).

Evidence that truth is the rock Jesus built His church. The testimony of instant death of Ananias & his wife Sapphira is a proof. They died for lying about how much they sold their possession (Acts 5:1-10). So the truth is both the foundation and the morals of the church of Christ. Also, Hymenaeus and Philetus strayed concerning the truth and overthrew faith of some in (2Tim. 2:17-18). Alexander and Hymenaeus backslide from faith and Apostle Paul delivered them to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme as per (1Tim. 1:20). So the church of Christ and desires of the flesh have nothing in common (2Cor. 6:14). This suggest people once saved can lose their salvation if their sidetrack is permanent. Also people once righteous can lose their righteousness as shown in (Ezek. 18:20).

It is those who believe and abide n Christ that nobody can plug out of His hands.

It may not be wrong to suggest that today’s Christianity is comatose. This is due to lack of attributes of truth, sound word and knowledge, and oneness required in the church of Christ. This originated when men introduced their curriculum to train and anoint ministers for the gospel against the word of God (1John 2:27). The result has been upsurge in dogmatism, exploitation of members, oratory, fables, etching ears, haughtiness, theater-like performance for praise worship, and etc. Others are doctrines of miracles, prophecy and wonders in the name of the Lord, which could be work of iniquity or lawlessness (Mt. 7:21-23). It is not surprising because scripture predicted it (2Tim. 4:3-4).

Hello Audience! Welcome to Return To God Forum TV program: This is Episode 1 of the ROOT Series – Named: “Know the truth and enter by the door before He is shut.” Jesus made the search for the door easy when He declared in (John 10:9): “I am the door, if anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, & will go in & out and find pasture.” This door has remained wide open since 33AD and no one can shut it. But when it shall be shut, which could any time, no one can open it. There has been ample opportunity to enter it. The more one delays the more the regret later. But do you know that not knowing the truth will prevent entry by the door? Moreover, do you know “grace is misunderstood till now?” So knowledge of the truth is key to avoid denial by Christ who scripture forecast might say in (Mt. 7:23): “I never knew you, depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.” This raises serious concern. All the good labor one may think he is doing by giving, caring for the needy, praise and worship, and preaching to crowds of congregation and etcetera can be in vain if not underlined by knowledge and practice of the truth.

 

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

Topic. Our topic for today is: How God interpreted grace.

Objective: To equip you with revelation knowledge of “what you don’t know about grace”.

 

The prevailing interpretation of grace is either Christ, or divine power, or unmerited/unearned/undeserved favor, etc. But without a trail of biblical proof, they at best suggest guesswork. Natural man cannot interpret scripture correctly. The word of God is spirit (John 6:63). Moreover the scripture was written for spirit beings by men inspired by God as suggested in (2Cor. 5:16): “Therefore from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.” Only God can reveal His truth through His word and His Spirit. From God comes the knowledge of the truth to Christ who always imitates Him {(John 5:19, 30). Then it flows from Christ by the Holy Spirit to whoever imitates Him too. (1Pet. 2:21). With the above background let’s examine the issue of grace.

 

Do you know grace and favor belong to different categories of gifts? In Eden, God told Adam not to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good & evil; else he would die (Gen. 2:17). But he failed to guide his home. It allowed the serpent to deceive the woman as suggested in (Gen. 3:6): “When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took off its fruit and ate. She also gave her husband with her, and he ate.” So Adam died instantly as God decreed earlier. It changed the nature of Adam from that of God to that of sin. Then Adam acted like a snake shedding its skin. His spirit & internal organs detached from the glory of God which previously covered him. Then tiptoed out naked, short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). This nakedness is what scripture means by man is born naked and equally returns to after world naked (Job 1:21). The proverb has nothing to do with the wealth of the world. On earth, the veil of the temple between man & the statue of God at the ark of Testimony symbolized the separation (Ex. 26:33).

So in general sin separated Adam totally (spiritually and physically) from God (Is. 59:2-3). Certainly, it could not have been otherwise. It was after this death that God cursed Adam. Part of it was to return to the ground from where he was made in the beginning. So death on earth is the fulfilment of the curse and not of the death of sin.

 

It was for this reason God showed mercy on Enoch and took him away without mortal death (Gen.5:23, 24). Prophet Elijah enjoyed the same mercy (2King 2:11). But the mercy was not enough to forgive the sin of death of separation which only Jesus came to fulfill.

 

From that moment in Eden man merited only death (Ezek. 18: 20-24).

So every gifts from God has been unmerited (Rom. 3:23-25), as (Rom. 6:23) also suggests: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” The eternal gift of God is what is known as grace. It is only God who gives the gift of grace. But favor is given by God & men (Lk. 2:52). This shows grace and favor belong to different categories of gifts. Therefore, there is no justification to link grace to favor or to single out the gift of grace as unmerited favor, even when every gift is unmerited. So what is grace?

 

Listing uniqueness of grace. Grace (and truth) came through Jesus (John 1:17). Moreover grace is central to the cross of Jesus. It stimulated Paul to declare in (Gal. 6:14): “But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” Moreover, grace is central to the gospel of Jesus crucified for it is the drive of its purpose, which is to save and finally redeem man (1Cor.2:2).

Jesus was crucified for our offences. As He died, mysteries unveiled as shown in (Mt. 27:51): “Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn into two from top to bottom.” It signaled the removal of the wall of sin which previously separated man from God. The shed blood of Jesus on the cross formed the odd door in our hearts. Upon His resurrection for our justification, the truth opened the odd door in our hearts to the presence of God, as shown in (2Cor. 4:6): Then God who (in the beginning) 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. This reset the kingdom of God within man, (Lk. 17:21). So, now, believers beholding the glory of the Lord through the word are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord, (2Cor. 3:18).

It paved the way for the Spirit to give gifts to man, (1Corithians 12:1-4).

In particular was for the gift of the Spirit of glory & of God (Hereafter called “The Spirit”) to rest upon man. It inspired in (Heb. 10: 19-20): “Therefore, brethren, having the boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh.”

To show the significance of “The Spirit” rests upon man God declared in (1Pet. 4:14): “If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God (The Spirit) rest upon you.

On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.” Anyhow, the carnal mind cannot perceive of the things of the Spirit. Also, a natural man cannot receive the things of God, for they are foolish to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1Cor. 2:14).

But with the Spirit of God he can appreciate the eternal gift of the Spirit. To reveal the purpose of the interplay between “The Spirit” & Paul God told him in (2Cor. 12:9); “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” It made Paul realize his perseverance was because of the grace God gave to help him bear pain of the thorn in his flesh for the sake of Jesus’ name (Heb. 4:16). Thus grace is what helps man stick to hope for eternal and abounding godliness in Christ (1Tim. 1:12-17). Wow!

 

Furthermore, grace relates to Christ who is God (John 1:1) and also the brightness of the glory of God (Heb. 1:3). So “The Spirit” is the Spirit of Jesus. Thus it’s the Spirit of Jesus which produces grace which God gives to man who abides in Christ. It portrays the blessings of the Spirit of Jesus as the face of grace in Christ. Therefore scripture declared in (Rom. 8:34): Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” This affirms “grace is intercession by Christ.” The woman with the issue of blood is a handy testimony. When she was healed, power left Jesus instantly. It suggests it was Jesus who Mediated for her (Luke 8:46). Grace manifests by reason of many forms of divine arsenal from blessings of the Spirit of Christ Jesus – power, wisdom, inexplicable arsenal that provides protection from anything beyond human ability, etc.

 

Wrong interpretation of grace. If you get grace wrong, the knowledge of the gospel of salvation will be wrong. It leads to lawlessness such as: love of the world & things in the world (1John 2:16), preaching of fables unrelated to the cross, etc.

 

Riddle of grace. Salvation of man began in the Spirit by grace through faith, (Eph. 2:8). Now we are being made perfect in the Spirit by grace through faith and not by the flesh, (Gal. 3:3). This is the thrust of the sacrifice of Jesus in (Rom. 3:25), Whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed.” It suggests once you believe in Jesus abide in Him in words and actions (Lk. 9:62). So every scripture which assures of salvation must be read in line with the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus and not in isolation of it. Only by doing so will ensure consistency throughout scripture. Example: “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more (Heb. 8:12).” This mercy refers to only previous sins and deeds before the cross of Jesus.

 

By comparison, the spirit of believers draws similarity to Adam’s spirit in Eden when he was created. Then God commanded him not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, else he would die (Gen. 2:17). Likewise God has now charged believers to pile up treasures in heaven and not on earth (Matt 6:19-21) and to flee evil (Gal. 5:19-21), else he would die too – this is the 2nd death (Rev. 21:8). This suggests why propitiation of Jesus saved man from only the previous sins (Rom. 3:25).

(Visit www.returntogodforum.com to find it).

THE CASE OF GRACE

To this day every person who believes that God is, hungers and thirsts (for truth) and is poorly clothed in this terrestrial earth (1 Corinthians. 4:11). To hunger and thirst in this case is to correspondingly follow and believe in Jesus Christ (John 6:35). The deficiencies listed before will only be satisfied by finding Jesus Christ. Amidst the contents of the book; Doomed Christianity and Unshakable Lifeline, grace is the pathfinder that can lead a person to Jesus Christ. Without the help of grace of God there is no hope for anyone. In the absence of grace the doubtless end for every person would have been condemnation (Daniel 12:2b).

Every person is born on earth dead as all persons living and mortally dead were in the loins of Adam when he died for disobeying God in the garden of Eden (Genesis 2:17; Genesis 3:6-8). After which God drove him out (Genesis 3:24) naked and, as well as deep darkness to this terrestrial earth of darkness (Isaiah 60:2). Therefore to come out of darkness it is absolutely desirable for man to seek to be the light of God – the only panacea. But man cannot find the indefinable light without first knowing and understanding the perspective of God concerning grace – the radar device and gift of God.

Today, grace is severally interpreted. The most popular is that grace is un-merited favor. Other less popular are that grace is Christ Jesus, or Spirit, or power and so on. Without concrete evidence it would suggest that all of these descriptions of grace are mere conjectures of man. Certainly none of them clearly captures what grace of God is.

Objective. The purpose of this blog is to clear the air and to give the biblical meaning of grace by using scripture to interpret scripture. This revelation knowledge is the first since the advent of the Holy Bible.

Scripture admonished believers to see biblical things from one perspective. The grace as proven below is the absolute truth by reason of the source. God is one and not the author of confusion. He will not give multiple interpretations to His word written for our learning. This suggest every believer ought to read the scripture with the same understanding of any specific biblical word of phrase or message. So the sole truth of grace of God is one.

Renewing the mind. It is necessary to first purge the mind of old beliefs if it is to be renewed. However observation of believers over a period of time has shown that many of them are unbending to change. Not even proof with scripture can make them accept truth shown to them. It is a common attitude in Christianity. People prefer to remain stuck with old beliefs which local church ministers have preached to them. This suggest that people pay lips service to the scripture. Notwithstanding Jesus cannot be found unless by way of truth. It requires willingness to give up old beliefs not authenticated clearly by scripture and to accept new revelations by scripture itself. Apostle Paul is our example of change of mind when he discarded old beliefs for the authentic new (Philippians 3:7-11).

If what grace is known to be is not in agreement with interpretation by scripture it is wrong. As a result subsequent knowledge about salvation by grace through faith will be incorrect or wrong. It is only scripture that interprets scripture to give knowledge of truth which is absolutely required to find Jesus, who is truth (John 14:6). In the new covenant it is Jesus according to the Spirit that must be found (2 Corinthians 5:16). It makes the gospel of the cross of Jesus Christ crucified the new focus (Galatians. 6:14). If what you hear grace to be is not as interpreted by scripture, it is the opinion of man.

What grace is not? Finding Jesus begins with knowledge of biblical reading of grace which came through Him (John 1:17). To understand grace requires a revisit to the sin Adam committed in Eden. The sin of Adam separated him from God totally (Isaiah 59:2). Spiritually the link of his spirit to that of God was cut off. Externally the glory of God which had robbed him departed and from then he fell short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). From that moment onward, the only thing he merited from God was death which he chose in Eden for disobeying the command not to eat the fruit of tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:17; Genesis 3:6-8)). Under the law God re-echoed the death penalty through the prophet Jeremiah to Israel (Jeremiah 15:1-4).

Under the law the separation of man from God was simulated by the veil of the temple (Exodus 26:33).  So sinful man does not merit any gift from God (2 Timothy. 1:9). Even under the new covenant man is only able to do things to please God by the gift of His grace. The significance of this is that all gifts from God are unmerited. Be it: favor, every form of blessing, and last the gift of grace. It suggest that to single out the gift of grace as un-merited or un-deserved favor is deception of monumental order. It is undoubtedly the opinion of man and not God.

The substance of grace. Grace is tied to Christ Jesus as it came through Him. To get the answer to what grace is it requires a revisit to the events at the crucifixion of Jesus on the cross: When He died the veil of the temple which had symbolized the separation of man from God in the Holy of Holies tore from top to bottom (Matthew. 27:51). With the removal of the veil, the sin which man had committed and had separated him from God was concurrently removed.

So by the propitiation of Jesus God forgave man the sins he committed previously (Romans 3:25) – This important fact is often sidelined by pastors and the like who proclaim that by the sacrifice of Jesus God forgave man the sins of all times – past, present and future. How misleading! Be guided by scripture like Berean Christians who declined to accept what is preached until confirmed by scripture. The aftermath of the forgiveness of sin was the exposure of man to the influence of heavenly reign.

What followed the forgiveness: God who commanded light to shine out of darkness shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians. 4:6). This reestablished the kingdom of God which Jesus said was within man Christ (Luke. 17:21).  Then the floodgate was opened to various spiritual instruments of governance in heaven for the Spirit to give gifts to man (1 Corinthians 12:1-4). Going forward man began to receive the benefit of the gifts of God through the person of the heart (1 Peter 3:4). One of the gifts is by the Spirit of glory and of God.

Dawn of grace to man. From the moment man was exposed to divine reign onward if a man is reproached for the sake of the name of Jesus (or righteousness) he is blessed for the Spirit of glory and of God rest upon him (1 Peter 4:14). But most often the man by faith ascribe the reason for his survival of the reproach to grace of God. Incidentally God validated the statement of the earthly man when He told Apostle Paul buffeted by thorn in his flesh that His grace was sufficient for him (2 Corinthians. 12:9). When the view of man is balanced against the meddling of the Spirit with the inner man it turns out that grace is equal to the effect of the Spirit of glory and of God upon man.

How grace relates to Christ Jesus. Jesus is the brightness of the glory of God (Hebrews 1:3) and He is equally God (John 1:1). Thus the Spirit of glory and of God is the Spirit of Christ Jesus. This is the clear assertion that grace is the effect of Spirit of Christ Jesus who reigns in heaven upon man. It suggest grace is the result of the Mediation of Jesus Christ, our Mediator, on behalf of man. In conclusion therefore, grace is the intercession of Christ for man. The significance of the new revelation knowledge is that it changes the age long narrative of the gift of grace as un-merited favor to focus of every believer on Jesus Christ in him or her. It is indeed a game changer to grab firmly now.

Differences between grace and favor. Grace is unique to Christ as it came through Him and proven above. So it is a Spirit. Whereas favor is a thing of the flesh exemplified by Jesus who received favor from both God and man (Luke 2:52).

My plea if you truly desire salvation of your soul? By this release you have seen and heard what grace is; in truth. The choice to accept and believe it or not is yours. However be circumspect not to brush it aside and remain stuck to unbelief, or ego or pride or ministry title or self-righteousness. As a disciple of Jesus Christ always seek biblical knowledge (Malachi 2:7) different from knowledge of worldly curriculum.
