How To Read The Bible
READ it the bible in order to gain UNDERSTANDING.

Do you 'STUDY' and analyze a cooking recipe or a letter that someone wrote to you????? you simply READ IT IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE IT CONVEYS?

That is the main problem with how scripture has been handled for centuries. Devotion is not LITERAL, it is SPIRITUAL (ROMANS).

Also understand that after the Spirit was "GIVEN" (John 7:39), we entered the ETERNAL DISPENSATION of the creator (the age of time ENDED and the the age of ETERNITY began (Jesus is the ETERNAL COVENANT).

We are to be SONS of The Heavenly Father.

The ETERNAL SPIRIT He provided purifies our CONSCIENCE and gives us ETERNAL LIFE (Hebrews 9:14).

Verse is from the RSV.

Commandments From Jesus
We are to be OUR OWN MASTERS (God doesn't want to be our master, AND He wants us to be "LOVERS OF GOODNESS" who don't have told/compelled by LAW/rules/regulations to do the right thing.

So, "KEEP" the principles/precepts of goodness outlined by the COMMANDMENT LAW (that law is now obsolete and replaced by us having a spirit that is compatible with The Lord's divine/eternal Spirit).

Tit 1:8 but hospitable, a lover of goodness, master of himself, upright, holy, and self-controlled,

In case you believe that we were TAUGHT the real truth of scripture....

Eze 16:49 your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, surfeit of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy.

Commandments From Jesus
'THE LAW' was not provided to be useful to righteous people (righteous people have NO NEED of LAW).

Righteous people are "LOVERS of goodness" and are completely fit to be their own masters.

1Ti 1:9 that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners

Heb 10:4 For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.

Luk 2:22 purification ACCORDING TO....

Heb 1:3 When he had made purification for sins

Heb 9:13 the blood of goats and bulls sanctifies for the purification OF THE FLESH,

Jhn 7:39 were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given.

The Sons Of God
When the Spirit was finally "GIVEN", we gained the ability to become SONS of the FATHER AND brothers/"BRETHREN" OF JESUS.

Jhn 7:39 were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

We have been ENABLED (given the ability/power) to be SONS of God instead of slaves and servants of Him the way the Jews were).

Rom 8:29 in order that he might be the first-born among many brethren.

Commandments From Jesus
The GOOD NEWS of the Gospel is that Jesus (the sacrificial LAMB because it is IMPOSSIBLE that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sin) is the ETERNAL covenant) provided us with the Spirit when He ascended (salvation of the flesh had already been accomplished ON THE CROSS).

Our goal SHOULD BE eternal life, NOT SALVATION OF THE FLESH (PURIFICATION OF THE FLESH was what Jesus did at the cross).
Our worship faith did not begin until Jesus was glorified.

God always had a holy/perfect spirit, but it was never GIVEN before.

The old worship faith (Judaism) was meant only to worship the creator as JEHOVAH (the House of Israels ONE HUSBAND . She was IMPURE and in need of everything that Jesus could have provided.

Commandments From Jesus
Jesus (the eternal covenant) and the eternal spirit (Hebrews 9:14) give us PRECEPTS of the 10 commandment law (Godly PRINCIPLES to KEEP in order that we may be approved of Him ("circumcision").

If LIFE eternal is your goal (salvation was accomplished on the cross), then you must understand more than the aged and also "walk at liberty".

Psa 119:40 Behold, I long for thy precepts, in thy righteousness give me life!

Psa 119:45 and I shall walk at liberty, for I have sought thy precepts.

Psalm 119:100 understand more than the aged, for I keep thy precepts.

Rom 2:26 if a man who is uncircumcised keeps the precepts of the law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision?

What Is Apophtatic Theology

...SPIRITS have no gender.

There are a lot of REAL truths to be discovered about scripture, but if you can't accept this without arguing, you will never know the "NEW NAME" or any other truth (your choice).

Isa 62:2 and you shall be called by a new name

Rev 2:17 with a new name

Rev 3:12 and my own new name.

What Is Apophtatic Theology
WE HUMAN BEINGS with physical bodies think and speak in terms of GENDER, but "spirit" has no gender (as in Galatians 3:28, "neither male nor female").

Since God is SPIRIT, He has no gender.

It's simply that God created MANKIND (humanity) and He specifies that He created THEM both male and female.

The traditional teachings taught in Sunday school and by scholars have not educated us properly about scripture.

How To Read The Bible
It is necessary to read the bible FOR/by YOURSELF. We are taught to read scripture as a REQUIREMENT for approval by the clergy and according to what THEY dictate and teach, but we must READ (NOT "STUDY" LIKE A SCIENTIST) for our own understanding.

When we read for our own understanding, we will notice a NEW NAME and a NEW DISPENSATION (the age of eternity).

Deu 33:27 The ETERNAL GOD is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms,

Rom 16:26 but is now disclosed and through the prophetic writings is made known to all nations, according to the command of the ETERNAL GODthe ETERNAL God.Rev 2:17 a new name

Why Do I Have Doubt
Heb 11:6 must believe that he exists AND that he rewards

The goal is to DRAW NEAR to Him and LOVE the truth".

In John 14:6, Jesus described Himself as THE TRUTH of EVERYTHING.

In 2 Thessalonians we are told that in order to be saved, we must LOVE Jesus endearingly...

So draw near with all of your heart and mind to the truth (Jesus).

Be a SON of God, not a slave or servant of Him.

The goal for modern worshippers must be ETERNAL LIFE worshipping ETERNAL GOD and embracing the ETERNAL COVENANT (Jesus).
Deu 33:27 The eternal God is your dwelling place.

Rom 16:26 according to the command of the eternal God

Heb 13:20 by the blood of the eternal covenant.

Still Call Themselves Sinners
We WERE under the Ten Commandment law...

Gal 4:5 to redeem those who WERE under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Gal 3:23 before faith came, we were confined under the law, kept under restraint until faith should be revealed.

We were constrained (regulated) by the 10 commandment law BEFORE the establishment of OUR faith in Jesus AND the "ETERNAL" Spirit of "ETERNAL God".

Hebrews 9:14 tells us of the ETERNAL divine Spirit (in direct quotes the "ETERNAL Spirit" purifies the conscience).

Have you been taught about "ETERNAL GOD" (God of Jeshurun) and the "ETERNAL COVENANT?

Many of the REAL truths of scripture and God have NEVER been TAUGHT).

Still Call Themselves Sinners
Of course you understand that the law of liberty is the PERFECT law...AND is the law that we will be judged under. We are told directly that it is how we are to speak and act.

We are told that we WERE under the ten commandment law and that is what Jesus abolished IN HIS FLESH on the cross...AND YOU IGNORE IT?


YES OR NO. Decide today whether you love man or God.

Col 2:23 These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting rigor of devotion

Still Call Themselves Sinners
We have been adopted as SONS OF GOD (sons are not "SERVANTS" or "SLAVES" of a FATHER). The decision you have to make is....

...have you decided to make God your God your loving heavenly FATHER or are you going to have Him as a MASTER that you FEAR and treat like a celebrity?

Are you going to have a "rigor of devotion and salute Him like a soldier to a superior officer or are you going to shed tears about what He suffered on the cross? (do you truly LOVE Him?.

Gal 4:5 to redeem those who WERE under the law, so that we might receive adoption as SONS.

Still Call Themselves Sinners
The Jewish sacrifices were required of the Jews for the maintenance of their sanctification but they did not not remove "SIN".

Psa 66:15 I will make an offering of bulls and goats.

Heb 10:4 For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.

The law illustrated many principles/precepts of good and proper living. God doesn't want us to be the kind of person who needs to be TOLD what to do, He wants us to be LOVERS OF GOODNESS..,we are to walk in LIBERTY (Law of Liberty, James 1:25 and 2:12) and be our own masters.

Psa 119:4 and I shall walk at liberty, for I have sought thy precepts.
Romans 2:26 his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision?

Still Call Themselves Sinners
Because the traditional teachings of today wrongly teach that we are JEWS. TODAY (after the crucifixion), we the faithful) are no longer JEWS, we are ADOPTED SONS of God (this is the age of ETERNITY, the JESUS DISPENSATION)>

The JUDAIC faith was for THE JEWS who had a "MESSIAH" (WE HAVE A savior).

THE LAW ABOUT "SIN" was abolished and destroyed. We are to live by the law of LIBERTY.

2Ti 1:10 who abolished death

Heb 2:14 that through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is, the devil,

Eph 2:15 by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances,

Luk 6:35, your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High

The Power Of The Law
If you refuse to live by the new law, then you will be considered to be LAWLESS.

Jesus spoke to the Jews in figures of speech.

John 16:25 said this to you IN FIGURES, the hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures

Jesus abolished the 10 commandment law (the law of sin).

Eph 2:15 by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances

2Ti 1:10 who abolished death and brought life

If that is not clear enough(the law of sin caused DEATH).

Heb 2:14 that through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is, the devil,

James 1:25 and...

JAMES 2:12 are to be judged under the law of liberty.

All verses are from the RSV.

Law That Christ Fulfilled
Basically, the Old Testament is the HEBREW BIBLE (it does CONTAIN many things that can be useful to us in understanding the NEW Testament).

The Jewish sacrifices used "the blood of bulls and goats", but that was insufficient and INADEQUATE for the forgiveness of sins, so The Heavenly Father sent us a LAMB (this is a helpful explanation, isn't it?).

The Jews only knew God according to TIME (that is why their Sabbath was a TIME PERIOD (sundown Friday to sundown Saturday). OUR Sabbath is ETERNAL (JESUS is the ETERNAL SABBATH and ETERNAL COVENANT).

There is no "OBEY"/duty in the law we are to abide by (law of liberty, James 1:25-2:12), but many refuse to abide/live by it, so God considers them LAWLESS.
