Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by Wheelz, Feb 20, 2015.

  1. His servants will come to preach to the churches what they hear the Spirit saying and we are to hear and be delivered from their “graves”. Carnal men have hewed out of the rock their church denominations in their own honor in which many sit….the “body of Jesus” that we all are. The men who have started these “graves” in which many sit in have been made “sure” by the doctrines and commandments of men that do not save anyone but only bring envy and strife and death of the mortal body.

    Matthew 27:57-60 KJV
    (57) When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
    (58) He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
    (59) And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
    (60) And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.


    They are spiritually “Shebna” ….the scribe and treasurer (as they do things for money) over the house….who had hewed out a sepulcher for himself on high and had engraved a habitation for himself in a rock: the engraving of the doctrines and commandments of men that keep many in their church denominations that were started by the rich in honor to themselves.

    There should be weeping, and mourning and humbling ourselves in the presence of God but behold, there is instead joy and gladness and killing of “sheep” and drinking wine….lacking judgment. Men are rejoicing in their riches of their denominations even though the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the mortal flesh of their followers (the sheep are being “killed”). It is all a “grave” started by men of which our Lord delivers us out of by the revealing of the knowledge of Him. They are preaching that we have to "die and go to heaven" without the life of Jesus being made manifest in our mortal flesh in the here and now. They want us to come join them in their revelry as they enrich themselves off of us and preach falsehoods.

    Isaiah 22:12-16 KJV
    (12) And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:
    (13) And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die.
    (14) And it was revealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.
    (15) Thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, Go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say,

    (16) What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock?

    Jehovah shall roll the stone away from their “grave” so that we may come forth and LIVE in the here and now. All of their doctrines and commandments shall be considered their shame.

    (17) Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee.

    He shall triumph over the principalities and powers….making a show of them openly (in a large country). He shall roll away the stone.

    (18) He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house.
    (19) And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.


    “Eliakim”….which means “God of RAISING”…shall deliver us and be our King.

    (20) And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:
    (21) And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.
    (22) And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.


    The stone shall be rolled back from the door and the “angel” shall sit upon it. Jesus is RISEN NOW and not dead. Why are they preaching that we have to die first when Jesus WAS DEAD and IS ALIVE NOW for evermore?

    Matthew 28:1-6 KJV
    (1) In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
    (2) And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
    (3) His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:
    (4) And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
    (5) And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
    (6) He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.


    We shall be quickened together with Him….“Eliakim”(which means “God of RAISING”)…. having our trespasses forgiven.

    Colossians 2:13-23 KJV
    (13) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    He will roll the stone away….taking it out of the way. The handwriting of carnal ordinances of men have had the power to keep many in the “graves” of the denominations of men. They have been as an engraved tomb stone that is against us and is contrary to us….keeping us from His life in the here and now and keeps us trapped in the denominations of carnal men.

    (14) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    But He rolls it out of the way and “sits” upon the stone as He makes a show of them openly….triumphing over them. He spoils the principalities and powers. No longer will men judge us with their carnal commandments and keep us in their graves with their fear.

    (15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.


    He takes away their powers over us so let NO MAN judge us (being fearful of their commandments) in respect to those things which are only the shadow of things to come.

    (16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    (17) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ
    .

    Let no man beguile you of your reward (the LIFE OF JESUS BEING MADE MANIFEST IN OUR MORTAL FLESH IN THE HERE AND NOW which gives us “eternal life”). They take the words of Moses and the prophets (the “angels”) and preach their carnal commandments. They are teachers of the Law but do not understand what they are teaching. They are vainly PUFFED UP their fleshly minds. “Shebna” means “growth”…..as they are “puffed up” in their fleshly minds. It is no coincidence that Shebna was also a SCRIBE as well as treasurer….for they have their handwriting of carnal ordinances of men that keep many in their church denominations.

    (18) Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
    (19) And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
    (20) Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
    (21) (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
    (22) Which all are to perish with the using) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
    (23) Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

  2. Again, our Lord comes to take away the “stone” that keeps us in the “graves” of religious-sounding men who have brought us into their bondage with the doctrines and commandments of men. They are against us. They are contrary to us. They keep us as “prisoners” in the tombs….the denominations of men. But the Lord takes those handwriting of ordinances (the word is DOGMAS) and nails it to His cross.

    Colossians 2:13-17 KJV
    (13) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
    (14) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
    (15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
    (16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    (17) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.


    And those church dogmas of carnal men that are nailed in the “sure place”…the cross…shall be removed out of our lives and be cut down and fall. The burdens that men have placed upon us shall be cut off for there is FREEDOM in Christ Jesus who died for our sins upon the cross.

    Isaiah 22:25 KJV
    (25) In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the LORD hath spoken it.

    He rolls the “stone” out of the way…. “violently turning” the “ball”….or in Hebrew: the “circle”. He takes their powers away from carnally-thinking men who have taken us into their bondage. They have made war with us in their church dogmas….the “chariots” of their glory. They glory in the flesh….the keeping of church dogmas….those handwriting of ordinances against us. But their power to keep us prisoners is to be taken away in His knowledge. He will put them to an open shame (in a large country) as He will triumph over their power of darkness.

    Isaiah 22:17-20 KJV
    (17) Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee.
    (18) He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house.
    (19) And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.
    (20) And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:


    We are to BEWARE lest any man should spoil us through their “philosophy and vain deceit” after the transmissions (tradition) of men. They want to bring us into their church bondage with their carnal ordinances and keep us there with their fear of dying and going to “hell” if we do not stay there with them.

    Colossians 2:8-13 KJV
    (8) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
    (9) For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
    (10) And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
    (11) In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
    (12) Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
    (13) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;


    Again, we are to not let man judge us according to their carnal ordinances that they have wrested out of the Scriptures to their own destruction of the flesh. We are not to fear what they preach that we should do for they are not holding the Head who is the true Head of all principality and power.

    Colossians 2:15-18 KJV
    (15) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
    (16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    (17) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
    (18) Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind
    ,

    Why are we subject to the ordinances of carnal men? Their commandments and doctrines do not save the flesh of anyone for many are perishing from off this earth with their using. Men war with each other in their divisions because of their carnal ordinances of men. They judge each other over them and no flesh is being saved for the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in those who keep their handwritings of church dogmas. They set aside the commandment of God to have love for one another in order to keep their church commandments and doctrines.

    Colossians 2:20-23 KJV
    (20) Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
    (21) (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
    (22) Which all are to perish with the using) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
    (23) Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

  3. Jesus IS RISEN and not dead. He WAS DEAD but is ALIVE NOW for evermore. Behold where they place Him in the churches of carnal men. They preach that we die first when the Lord WAS dead and IS alive now and so we are to experience His life now in our mortal flesh without dying first.

    Revelation 1:16-18 KJV
    (16) And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
    (17) And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
    (18) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.


    He is not in the sepulcher of our church fathers who hewed out their denominations in honor for themselves and have place that stone of the handwriting of church dogmas which are against us. They are contrary to us. But He rolls away their powers to keep us in their “graves”.

    The “chief priests and the Pharisees” do not want His disciples to come preaching to them that He IS RISEN from the dead. Yes, they speak that He is risen but they deny that He IS COME in our mortal flesh in the here and now thereby denying that He is risen. IF He ALREADY died for us so that we might have life and have it more abundantly, then why do they keep preaching their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave? Death is not a friend but an enemy that is overcome in Christ Jesus TODAY! They have made the tomb secure….a sure thing for their listeners and keep them there with their doctrines and commandments of men.

    Matthew 27:62-66 KJV
    (62) Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
    (63) Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
    (64) Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
    (65) Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.
    (66) So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.


    If Christ is truly alive (which HE IS ALIVE NOW), then the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead shall also make ALIVE NOW our MORTAL (subject to death) bodies by His Spirit that dwells in us. The life of Jesus is to be made manifest in our mortal flesh by living after the Spirit continually.

    Romans 8:11-14 KJV
    (11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
    (12) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.


    If through the Spirit we do deaden the deeds of the body, we shall LIVE NOW.

    (13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
    (14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.


    If we bear about in the body the dying of our Lord Jesus, then the LIFE also of Jesus will be made manifest in our MORTAL body….our MORTAL flesh….in the here and now for Jesus IS ALIVE NOW and not dead.

    2 Corinthians 4:7-11 KJV
    (7) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
    (8) We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
    (9) Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
    (10) Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

    (11) For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

    As they saw the young man sitting on the right side and clothed in a long white garment, we are to put on the NEW man (the young man) which is created in righteousness and true holiness. We are to put off the old man and be renewed in the spirit of our mind. Let us hear what the Spirit is saying and not resist but remember to do His will.

    Mark 16:5-8 KJV
    (5) And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.

    Jesus IS RISEN. He is not in the tomb of carnal men who are preaching their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave.

    (6) And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
    (7) But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.


    We are to go out quickly from among them and flee from their denominations.

    (8) And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid
    .

    We are to work out our salvation with fear and trembling….

    Philippians 2:12-13 KJV
    (12) Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
    (13) For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.


    We are to go out quickly and work out our salvation with fear and trembling and if any man asks the reason for our hope that is in us, we are to answer with meekness and fear.

    1 Peter 3:15-17 KJV
    (15) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
    (16) Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
    (17) For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.


    We are not redeemed by the things of our church fathers. They have called “their lands” after their own names and think that their denominations that they have started will continue to go on.

    Psalms 49:11-20 KJV
    (11) Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
    (12) Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that peris
    h.

    Their way is their folly and their followers have approved of their sayings.

    (13) This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.


    Yet, in the “morning” of the Truth (Jesus IS ALIVE not dead), their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling. Their glory shall not continue as they will now be seen as tombs made for themselves and their honor shall quickly disappear.

    (14) Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.


    God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave. He shall receive me.

    (15) But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
    (16) Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
    (17) For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
    (18) Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
    (19) He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
    (20) Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.


    The messenger of the Lord descends from heaven and comes and rolls back the stone from the door and sits upon it.

    Matthew 28:1-4 KJV
    (1) In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.
    (2) And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
    (3) His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:


    Those who fear Him as they keep what He says will humble themselves…..become as dead men…

    (4) And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

    The “angel” that descends from heaven….the messenger….is “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”

    Revelation 1:16-18 KJV
    (16) And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
    (17) And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
    (18) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
     
  4. We are all seeking Jesus….but He is not there where the denominations of fleshly-minded men are putting Him. They are keeping Him in the “grave” in the minds of those who listen to them as they preach we have to die first and go to heaven when Jesus already died for us and IS RISEN so that we might have life NOW and have it more abundantly.

    We seek Jesus who WAS CRUCIFIED but IS NOW RISEN.

    Matthew 28:5-6 KJV
    (5) And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
    (6) He is not here: for he is risen,
    as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay
    .

    If we are buried with Him by baptism into death (that is, dying to sin continuously as He did), then we shall be raised up from the “dead” (being dead in trespasses and sins) like Him by the glory of the Father. We also should walk in newness of life….NOW. Salvation IS NOW.

    Romans 6:4-13 KJV
    (4) Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
    (5) For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
    (6) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
    (7) For he that is dead is freed from sin.


    Now if we are dead with Christ (dead to sin), we believe that we shall also live with Him….NOW….for Jesus WAS dead and IS ALIVE now and for evermore.

    (8) Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

    Christ being raised from the dead DIES NO MORE for death has NO MORE DOMINION over Him. If we are buried with Him in His death (being dead to sin), then we shall also experience His life NOW for He is ALIVE NOW. He IS RISEN and not dead.

    (9) Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
    (10) For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God
    .

    We are to reckon ourselves dead to sin but ALIVE unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord who is ALIVE NOW for death has no more dominion over Him. If death has no more dominion over Him, then death has no more dominion over us who follow in His footsteps. The carnal teachings of men are denying that we are truly alive now unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord as they preach their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave which Jesus has already triumphed over.

    (11) Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    See the focus here on the MORTAL body. It is about the life of Jesus within us being made manifest in our mortal flesh in the here and now so that we may display the glory of God to this dark, dying world. They should see the Light being made manifest so that the whole world should seek out God.

    (12) Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
    (13) Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.


    NOW is the time that we are made free from sin so that we may become servants to God. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord whose life is made manifest in our MORTAL (subject to die) body. We have not DIED YET (being “mortal”) when the life of Jesus is made manifest in our MORTAL bodies in the here and now. Death is rendered IDLE NOW for salvation is NOW.

    Romans 6:20-23 KJV
    (20) For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
    (21) What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
    (22) But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.


    If we continue to serve sin in our mortal bodies, then we reap death of the mortal body.

    (23) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    We can not sit in the “graves” of religious-sounding men who are preaching things for “filthy lucre’s” sake.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-20 KJV
    (9) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
    (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
    (11) And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
    (12) All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.


    We can not sit with those who are called “brothers” but are covetous as they preach for money and lead many astray to the destruction of the mortal body. The BODY is not for “fornication”…being joined together with those who preach for money. the mortal body is for the Lord....to be raised up by His own power to display His glory to this world.

    (13) Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
    (14) And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
    (15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.


    We can not sit together with them. This is “fornication”….sitting with those who preach things for money after their covetousness in their hearts. We become ONE FLESH with them when we are joined together with them in their denominations of decay.

    (16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
    (17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.


    We must flee “fornication”…sitting with those who are called “brothers” but are covetous. If we sit together with them, we are committing “fornication” and are sinning against our own mortal bodies for we are perishing along with them. The mortal body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in us.

    (18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
    (19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?


    Our bodies are bought with a price. We are to glorify God in our mortal body and in our breath. We can NOT sit with them any longer. We must come out from among them and be separate and He will receive us.

    (20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.


    Let no man beguile you of your reward....the life of Jesus being made manifest in our mortal flesh in the here and now. We are not to come near to the “door” of their house as they speak good words and fair speeches to lead the simple of heart astray.

    Proverbs 5:7-13 KJV
    (7) Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
    (8) Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:


    If we sit together with them in their denominations, then we shall give our honor unto others and our years unto the cruel….

    (9) Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
    (10) Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;


    …as our mortal flesh and bodies are consumed as they lead us down the broad path to the destruction of the flesh. The life of Jesus is not being made manifest in the flesh of them for they deny that He IS COME in the mortal flesh….our mortal flesh. They are placing Jesus still in the grave for they deny that His life is to be made manifest in the here and now. But Jesus IS RISEN. HE IS ALIVE NOW and we are to have His life NOW. Salvation IS NOW.

    (11) And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
    (12) And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
    (13) And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!


    Let us not receive the grace of God in vain. NOW IS THE ACCEPTED TIME. NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION….not after we “die and go to heaven” as popularly taught.

    2 Corinthians 6:1-2 KJV
    (1) We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
    (2) (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)


    OUR SALVATION IS NEARER than when we believed. Men have sought to change the times of our salvation and have led us to believe that it is later when salvation is NOW. If it is NOW, then we are to cast away the works of darkness and put on the armor of Light and walk out of their companies. They will persecute us for departing from their churches but we are to have the armor of Light on and not render evil for their evil.

    Romans 13:10-14 KJV
    (10) Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
    (11) And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
    (12) The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
    (13) Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
    (14) But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
