What Is Apophtatic Theology
  
"NEITHER MALE NOR FEMALE" means NO GENDER.

...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 ...it 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?

DO YOU NOW OPENLY MOCK JESUS EVEN AFTER HAVING THIS TRUTH POINTED OUT TO YOU??

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.


The Power Of The Law
  
Jesus fulfilled all of the righteousness of the Jewish faith (told the people what their priests and scriptures said was RIGHT).

Jesus did not come to earth for the specific purpose of abolishing ANYTHING. HOWEVER, He DID ABOLISH the 10 commandment law in His flesh..

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

We are told EXPRESSLY and clearly in scripture what "LAW" we should be abiding by ("law of liberty", James 1:25 and 2:12).

Since we were TAUGHT to abide the law that was ABOLISHED and we NEGLECT to abide by the proper "law", God considers us each to be "LAWLESS".

There is nothing to "OBEY" (as 'duty' to perform).


Law That Christ Fulfilled
  
We need the new paradigm (reference point) of ETERNITY.

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

Rom 16:26 the command of the ETERNAL GOD ..(this is the age of eternity, no longer the age of TIME).

Heb 13 by the blood of the ETERNAL COVENANT
Heb 9:14 the blood of Christ, who through the ETERNAL SPIRIT

Jesus was sent to earth in the fullness of TIME (the completion and end of TIME,
Ephesians 1:10).Jesus ended the age of time and also began the age of eternity.

Heb 9:26 once for all at the end of the age to put away sin

Mark 10:30 in the age to come, eternal life

JESUS is the ETERNAL COVENANT.

All verses are from the RSV.


Ten Commandments Historical
  
The law illustrated many principles/precepts of good and proper living (He 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 (James 1:25 and 2:12).

Psa 119:4 and I shall walk at liberty, for I have sought thy precepts.



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

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

The 10 comm. Law was for the Jews who sought circumcision (they are NOT for us, we shall only KEEP the PRECEPTS/principles illustrated/outlined by them.

Verses are from the RSV.)
