4th Segment of the Once Saved Always Saved Series
Let’s go back to the history of the sunray.
The penis which is now called the steeple sits on top many churches. Let me make another point here before we go on. The buildings we meet in are just buildings, a place of meeting. We who are born again of the Spirit of the living God are the church. We as part of the body of Christ are the ones who make up what the bride of Christ should be; a light to everyone around you. A reflection of Christ in you, a recipient of our heavenly Father’s saving grace. We are supposed to be a chaste virgin.
2 Corinthians 11:1-4 (KJV) 1 Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. 2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
We are chaste not because of our own efforts but by our confidence in the atoning blood of our Lamb that hung on Calvary hill. Yahshua (Jesus) as our high priest presented His blood on the mercy seat. He is the visible manifestation of the invisible Creator, our heavenly Father.
John 6:45 (KJV) 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
Ezekiel 10:14 (KJV) 14 And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
He is between the cherubim’s. Underneath the lid of the arc of the covenant is the testimony book, a legal document that tells us what sin is. This is what John saw and is spoken about in the book of Revelation.
Revelation 11:19 (KJV) 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
1 Timothy 1:17 (KJV) 17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
The King eternal means the King of ages. The word of God (El) means the Almighty; He is the Elohim of Genesis 1:1.
Genesis 1:1 (KJV) 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The Creator became visible as our Emmanuel. Emmanuel means God (El) the Almighty with us.
John 1:1-14 (KJV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 1:18 (KJV) 18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
The Word was God the Self-Existing One; Always Was, Is and Is to Come; the Infinite, Eternal, Perfect Almighty (El).
Every born-again believer should take 1 Peter 1:12-16
1 Peter 1:12-16 (KJV) 12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. 13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
The word holy is the Greek word hagios; an awful thing meaning inspiring, awe or fear as in Exodus 3:5; sacred, physically pure, morally blameless or religious ceremonially consecrated; the most holy one thing, saint.
Exodus 3:5 (KJV) 5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
The Hebrew word of holy is godish as sacred place or thing; to sanctify; a consecrated thing, dedicated thing, hollowed thing; most holy; a day; a portion, a thing, a saint, sanctuary. We are to be a sacred place; grieve not the Holy Spirit of God (Elohim) whereby ye are sanctified unto the day of redemption.
Ephesians 4:17-32 (KJV) 17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
We are to be a sanctuary, set apart from the world. The Lord wants us to be a consecrated, dedicated, hallowed person unto Him. He wants us to have a walk of holiness in this world.
Hebrews 12:14 (KJV) 14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
We are to be saints of the Almighty at this present time.
1 Corinthians 1:1-3 (KJV) 1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: 3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 4:12 (KJV) 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
There are sixty-one verses in the New Testament (covenant) that speaks of saints and thirty-five in the Old Testament (covenant). If you are not living as a saint start now. It is impossible to make a dead person a saint, there is no question about this, it’s in Isaiah 8:19.
Isaiah 8:19 (KJV) 19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
Psalm 115:17-18 (KJV) 17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence. 18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.
Ecclesiastes 9:1-9 (KJV) 1 For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God: no man knoweth either love or hatred by all that is before them. 2 All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath. 3 This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead. 4 For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. 5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward (any advantage to them); for the memory of them is forgotten (the ability to remember has perished). 6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished (their ability to love, hate envy is not perished); neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun. 7 Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works. 8 Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment. 9 Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.
Revelation 19:20 (KJV) 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
The whole world is already deceived and will get worse. Our heavenly Father, our Almighty God (our El) who loves us more than we know wants to free us from all deception. He wants us to obey and get out of Babylon so you will not receive her plagues.
Revelation 18:4 (KJV) 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
