The Firstfruits

    Home Back

 

 

Romans 8:22, 23: NKJV: For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

 

The adoption and redemption of our filthy sinful bodies is not completed until the suffering to death which is the portal to the Kingdom and glory of our God. ** Verse 17: And if children, then heirs---heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with HIM, that we may also be glorified together. ** As we suffer and groan within ourselves, the devil continues his evil work through brilliant men that fix things without asking help from our God. Creation groans from polluted water, polluted soil, deadly disease and starvation. Extinctions of our Creator’s animals and resources pass away in death as population rapidly increases.

 

Psalm 145: 19: HE will fulfill the desire of those who fear HIM; HE also will hear their cry and save them. ** There is a saying: The deal is not done until the check is in the bank. Salvation is not completed until we continue to struggle with the help of our Lord to do HIS will by keeping all HIS commandments by walking exactly as the Messiah walked during his short life as a human in this current evil world of the devil. Like father like son is a faithful saying. Most of mankind walks not with Father God but with their father, the devil. ** John 8:44: You are of your father the devil and the desires of your father you want to do……..

  

To be fully acceptable in the eternal Kingdom of our God, the Lord of Hosts, we must continue to ask for help from our Father in heaven to overcome the wicked ways of this temporary devil’s world. With HIS help in Bible and Torah (law) studies to do HIS will; we have the opportunity to become like father like son. We groan but eagerly wait for full adoption and redemption of our filthy bodies which are many members into the ONE body of Christ. ** 1 Corinthians 12:26, 27: And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually. ** If we are truly the one body of Christ, we must walk as he walked. One of the most important things to do this season is to celebrate HIS death by doing as HE did by keeping the Passover on Nissan 14 with HIS disciples, as follows:

 

Mark 14:12: Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they killed the Passover Lamb, HIS disciples said to HIM: Where do YOU want us to go and prepare that YOU may eat the Passover? ** Luke 22:15, 16: Then HE said to them: With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover (Hebrew is Pasach) with you before I suffer; for I say to you I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God. ** Verse 28-30: But you are those who have continued with ME in MY trials. And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as MY Father bestowed one upon ME, that you may eat and drink at MY table in MY kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. ** Judas in his greed gave up the chance to sit on a throne to judge one of the twelve tribes of Israel in the soon coming Kingdom and family of God. As King David will be ruler once again over all Israel, the Apostle Paul, Moses Abraham, Jacob or Elijah will likely be designated by God as ruler over the other nations in the Kingdom. Just as the disciples and prophets will be fully adopted into the Family of One, so will many others that walk in love as Christ: I Corinthians 5: 7-8: …Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us, therefore let us keep the feast (Passover, Hebrew is Pasach, Greek is Pasch)… ** 1 Corinthians 6:17: But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with HIM. ** Sadly, the powerful spirit of the devil makes most of this evil world think they are joined to the Lord of love. Most of this evil world of hate and murder turns it back on God as Judas in greed turned to the world of the devil with the passionate desire and love of an idol called money. This describes much of this evil world, then and much more now.

 

Revelation 1:5-6: And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To HIM who loved us and washed us from our sins in HIS own blood and has made us kings and priest to HIS God and Father, to HIM be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. ** Those that have been washed from our sins and have the firstfruits of the Spirit, the redemption of our body will be fully adopted into the Kingdom as one.  To become washed of sins and have the firstfruits of the Spirit, it is necessary to keep all the commandments.  Christ, HIS disciples and the early firstfruits of the Church of God established on the day of Pentecost specifically began (Acts 2:1). Verse eleven tells us that proselytes (aliens, us) were converts to Judaism and the Church of God. All these with one accord kept the Holy seven commands of Leviticus chapter 23. After the first command to keep the Seventh day Holy, the next most important is the Passover whereby the angel of death passed over each Jewish household which Christ expanded to all mankind that keeps HIS holy law of love.

 

Exodus 12:6: Now you shall keep it (male lamb or goat representing Messiah) until the fourteenth day of the same month (Nisan 14). Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. ** Each household killed and ate the Passover the night of the thirteenth, according to the clock of our Eternal ONE; for each day begins at twilight (Genesis 1:5). The fourteenth day begins on the thirteenth at twilight. This is the correct time our Messiah, the Great God of Mercy ate his last earthly Passover with HIS disciples until HIS great feast in the Kingdom come. Leviticus 23:2: …The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are MY feasts.

 

John 8:51: Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps MY word he shall never see death.

John 5:25: Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. ** First Timothy 6:12: Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were called…

 

May our Lord bless you until we meet again!
