1st Corinthians 16:1-3 Explained
1st Corinthians 16:1-3 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
Between 41-54 A.D. there was a drought, that happened that was predicted by the prophet Agabus. Acts 11:27-30 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea: Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.
The drought effected a large portion of the area in and around Jerusalem. As then so it is today there’s always a need for food during and after a drought which also can create great famine in the area. This is due to the fact that it takes the land much time to recover and become productive again. In this type of situation it would become necessary that a collection would be made by the leaders of the Church, and the community to create relief for those involved and or effected by this event.
It is believed that the apostle Paul wrote 1st Corinthians in the late spring of 55 A.D., and he and Barnabas began a collection that was meant for the drought relief. Paul mentions this collection in his letter to the congregation of God at Rome (about 58 A.D.), saying to them in Romans 15:24-28 Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company. But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints. For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things. When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.
The Work Of the Kingdom…….
The Collections that are being spoken of here are not Old Testament Tithes nor are they Love offerings for the building up of the Church (Other than feeding those in need). The collections were also were not used to support Paul or the other Church Leaders in the process of doing their individual ministries. Their own individual occupations as tent makers, carpenters, fishermen and the like, provided most if not all of the funding that was needed to promote the Kingdom of God. Of course there were additional love offerings in many forms that were given to them along their path, however it was their vocation that mainly supported their ministry and service for the Kingdom of God. Acts 17 1-3, Acts 18:1-5 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ. After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers. And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.
The collection of money in question was used for disaster relief for the Christians and or Saints living in that area at the time, and those that were effected by the prior years drought and famine associated with that event. This Scripture is often taking out of context to what was originally taught by the Apostles and should not be interpreted in any other way.
Any such interpretation is a Doctrine of man and as such should be repented of.
Hebrews 6:1-6 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

As led by the Holy Spirit
So Saith the Spirit of the Lord!
If the Spirit of Him who raised Yahshua (Jesus) from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Yahshua (Jesus) from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam (Yahshua) became a life-giving spirit. And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air (Satan), of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But our God and Father Yahweh, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ by grace you have been saved. Flee from all things of the flesh, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Yahshua (Jesus), who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time—Yah who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion!
Amen, Amen, Amen.

Reference: Romans 8:11, 1 Corinthians 15:45, Ephesians 2:1-5, 1 Timothy 6:11-16
God is Spirit and God is our Creator and Father, He came to earth in the form of His only Son Emanuel (God is with us).
Colossians 1:13-16 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.
Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, (The First Adam) in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. The second Adam, Yahshua (Jesus) the human form of Yahweh and who was and is the expressed Image of God (Yah). Hebrews 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty (Yah) on high.
God (Yah) is not “Three Distinct Persons” as the diluted and corrupted Trinity Doctrine teaches.
Yah is a “Spiritual Being” with Four distinct attributes In his divine nature. And has a plethora of other qualities that He possesses. Yah (The Self-Existent One) is our Father Yahweh, He lives in and through His Son Yahshua (The Self-Existent One Is Our Savior) and Or (Yah Is Savior), and Yah is and has a Holy Spirit. Yah is One distinct Eternal, Omnipotent and Omnipresent Spiritual being. What He is Not is the creation of adulterated, fallible and deluded natural man.
Romans 1:20-23 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. And so it is written! John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Only those that are in His light and walk in the revelation of His Spirit, can truly begin to know Yah in all His Glory and presence. In His sacrifice for the redemption of man, Yahweh Possessed human flesh. By our worship, our freewill, And our yielding to His Lordship. He promises to eternally possesses us, with His Holy Spirit and Truth.
John 4:23-24 But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 14:16-17 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. 1 John 2:25-27 This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life. These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
Satan is the god of this current world system and has blinded the unbelieving mind, keeping them in the darkness and eternal disparity of His expiring kingdom. Yah’s true gospel has been hidden from Satan’s workers of greed and deception. This is so they can not see the true Glory of Yah, And the real revelation of His Spirit, being manifested through His Sons and Daughters in these final days.
Jude 1:17-21 But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they were saying to you, “In the last time there will be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts.” These are the ones who cause divisions, worldly-minded, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
2 Corinthians 4:1-6 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart, but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. ” Romans 8:18-19 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
Yahweh “A Spiritual Being” Fulfilled His promise of redemption, by placing himself temporarily In the flesh and bones of Yahshua. He was present on the Earth as the atoning sacrifice for our sins, transferring His Saving grace to mankind.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19 Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Genesis 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Yahweh’s eternal form is Spirit and we were all created in His image. When Yahweh came to Earth living in human form of Yashua, He was at that time fully man and fully God. This Second Adam, was the Holy reparation for the original sin of the First Adam and his subsequent fall from grace.
Acts 17:24-31 The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him (Himself) from the dead.”
Amen, Amen, Amen

The word Attributes in describing God and or Yah (The Self-Existing One) in this post are being used as a plural noun: attributes
a quality or feature regarded as a characteristic or inherent part of someone or something.
“flexibility and mobility are the key attributes of our army”
synonyms: quality, characteristic, trait, feature, element, aspect, property, sign, hallmark, mark, distinction; informalX factor
“The Holy Spirit has all the attributes of a Yah, Yahweh and Yahshua, And they are together one Eternal being”
Galatians 1:15-16 But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood. 1 Peter 4:6 For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God. Amen
1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Luke 3:21-22 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
Primary to ones walk with God is the cleansing baptism by water for the remission of our sins. John who was called by God (My Messenger), Preached of the coming Lord and the Baptism of repentance and the subsequent forgiveness of sins. John taught the people of Judea and all of the region of the Jordan the process, meaning and blessed hope of the coming Lord and Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.
Mark 1:1-5 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
Led by the Spirit
Galatians 5:16-18 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
After our Baptism by water and receiving Yahshua (Jesus) as our Savior, we begin the long path and process of Sanctification in our search for Holiness and complete acceptance of His Lordship in our daily life. We accomplish this by His undeserved Grace as we grow in Faith in our daily walk with Our God and Father. After many trials and tribulations, we come to the point of Yahweh God’s Preeminence of every area of our lives, completely surrendering to His Lordship. During this process we grow in Knowledge, Wisdom and understanding of His Love and Mercy every step of our path.
Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. Colossians 1:13-20 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
God created everything and everyone for Him and His purpose, In His image and not ours. What we imagine as important and what we honor in the natural world, Is yet dross (Worthless) to our Lord and Savior.
Born of the Spirit
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
When our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) came on the scene He taught that; not only should a man be born again by the water of repentance and forgiveness, But Through the baptism of God’s very own Holy Spirit. Jesus taught we should be born again, not by the flesh as when we first entered this world, but by His Spirit and Power. This Spiritual rebirth would allow us to enter into the kingdom of God and complete our mission and purpose in Christ.
John 3:5-8 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
1 Peter 1:15-16 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Acts 2:1-4 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Walking in Power
Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. Acts 8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
Only in the Power of the Holy Spirit do we edify the body of Christ and are we fully prepared to be His witness, fully operational in our gifts and our assigned offices in the Army Of God. Only through this new birth manifested by His Holy Spirit, can we one day hope to inherit the kingdom of God and our Lord and Savior, Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Luke 1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 9:1-2 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. Luke 10:19-20 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
Living in the gifts
John 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
Every Follower of Christ has gifts of one kind or the other. There are also many diverse ways we operate in these gifts, According to Gods Will and purpose in our lives. God created us for His purpose and use. The gifts He has given us complement us and match our personalities and the individual desires He has given us.
1 Corinthians 12:4-12 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
Yahweh God also has created administrative positions or offices, for the work of the ministry and the edification of the His body. This is a Five Fold Ministry and these offices that make up the core leadership of the Body of Christ. All of these offices are fully functioning and will continue, Until we all are unified in our faith and beliefs in the Body of Christ. Only at the return of Christ is the above statement made complete, the fullness of Christ will not happen until He returns for us, His bride. The Perfection of man to the nature, stature and fullness of CHRIST, will not happen until we are fully quickened into our Spiritual Bodies at His final return.
At the present time there are multiple denominations and Doctrines being taught throughout the world, prior to His coming our path will be made clear. The Gospel of the Spirit of God as promised will be taught throughout the entire world. It’s truth will set the captives free, Allowing all of Gods children to hear the truth and love of Yahweh God. All His children will have a chance to accept the doctrine of the Apostles and Prophets of Christ, And be released from the bondage and corruption of Satan, to the Glory and liberty of His Manifest Sons and Daughters.
Ephesians 4:10-16 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things. And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Romans 8:18-21 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Amen
1 Corinthians 15:45-57 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord. Amen
Ecclesiastes 8:8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
Amen, Amen, Amen

Matthew 7:15-17 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
The Rise of False Prophets
Matthew 24:11-14 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
The Spirits of Pride, Lust, Greed and Control are a prerequisite to being a False Prophet. From Ahab, Azur, and Jezebel to Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin to current day manifestations of False Prophets of the likes of Benny Hinn, Joel Olsteen, T.J. Jakes and Kenneth Copeland just to name a few. They all have one thing in common either they make themselves a Demigod https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/demigod or their Doctrine teaches of another God. A good example of this would be teaching a Gospel or Doctrine of Prosperity or preaching another Jesus. https://realityofyahwehblog.wordpress.com/…/the-unfruiful-…/ Teaching another Jesus would be Preaching that Yahshua (Jesus) was not Yahweh God who came in the flesh but only His son, this Is a False Gospel. Allow me to explain: Jesus was not just a man with the Spirit of God living though and in Him, but was God Himself incarnated in human form, The Word made flesh. Jesus was not only Begotten of God but was “Emmanuel”, Literally as His Word implies “God with us”. Our Father couldn’t make it any clearer to us.
Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. Jesus/God our creator, was The expressed image of His Invisible and or Spiritual self in human form. Colossians 1:15-17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
To summarize, God is a Spirit and God is also our Creator and Father, who also became His Word that was made flesh. God was also the man called Yahshua (Jesus), who was also God the Father in human form. Yahshua (Jesus) was Fully Human and at the same time fully God, And was indwelt by His own Holy Spirit (Ghost). All Three are One!
John 1:13-14 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 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 4:24: God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
1 John 5:7 : For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
The Judgement of a False Prophet
Jeremiah 23:16-24 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord. They say still unto them that despise me, The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. For who hath stood in the counsel of the Lord, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it? Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings. Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.
The Task of the true Prophet
Hosea 8:1 Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the Lord, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
Job 37:9-14 Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy. Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
Hearken the Prophets call to Repentance
Proverbs 1:27-33 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
We must Strive to be Holy
Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.
Yahshua (Jesus) was and is Yahweh God the Father, He is His own son and is and has a Holy Spirit, Only He is Holy. We are not Holy but we are to seek and follow after Holiness. If it is Yahweh God’s will we will be made Holy through Yahshua (Jesus) Christ, At the day of our final judgement and the completion of our sanctification. Make your daily conversations clean and above reproach among men. At His return the Lord will bless you for you due diligence, If it is His Will and your Lot.
Revelation 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. 1 Samuel 2:2 There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God. 2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 1 Peter 1:13-16 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; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
