The Truth

1 Peter 2:8-10: NKJV: And a Stone of stumbling and a rock of offense. They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of HIM who called you out of darkness into HIS marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.


The Apostle is talking about the newly formed churches in Asia Minor which were gentile but part of the Jewish family of God. The Jewish family of God was born (Later called Christians) on the holy Day of Pentecost in the year 31 with the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4). * Acts 2:38: Then Peter said to them: Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the Holy Spirit.* Three thousand souls were added to them (Acts 2:41). However, as the Jewish God family greatly increased, the Stone (Jesus Christ) became a stumbling block to the religious leaders in Jerusalem. Secular chaos erupted and many Jews that believed in Jesus were killed or chased out of Jerusalem. Yet, people that receive the gift of the Holy Spirit will become a royal priesthood in a holy nation of faith, truth and peace.


Revelation 5:9-10: And they sang a new song saying: Your are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for YOU were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth. * This reward is for those that have kept all the Sabbaths and commandments of the Lord. This is the kingdom of God for the elect at the second coming of Christ Jesus. Then time has become no more for all the sons of disobedience to the Word, the law of God.


Ezekiel 7:2-4: And you, son of man, thus says the Lord God to the land of Israel (entire world): And end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land (entire earth). Now the end has come upon you, and I will send MY anger against you; I will judge you according to your ways, and I will repay you for all your abominations. My eyes will not spare you, nor will I have pity; but I will repay your ways, and your abominations will be in your midst; then you shall know that I am the Lord! * Unfortunately, until resurrection, it is too late to repent for time is no more for the wicked. Yet, at the second coming of Christ, those few that have proven their love as doers of the law of heaven, time begins forever.


Matthew 22:14: For many are called, but few are chosen. * Matthew 7:14-15: Because narrow is the gate and broad the way which leads to life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets (teachers), which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. * The consequence of rejection of citizenship in the kingdom of God is severe * But the chosen, having received the power of the Holy Spirit, will be the extended arm as family of our Lord God. Matthew 12:50: For whoever does the will (keeping commandments in faith) of MY Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother (Mark 3:35, also). At resurrection, the chosen will be gods within the family of God.


John 10:34-35: Jesus answered them: Is it not written in you law (Psalm 82:6), I said: You are gods? If HE (God) called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken).  * Before resurrection, the God family of royalty lived their lives to taste that the Lord is gracious and are precious in the sight of the Lord.


The Living Stone

1 Peter 2:3-5: If indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious, coming to Him as to a Living Stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. * To taste the grace of God, we must first become united in love by keeping HIS commandments. * John 14:15: If you love ME, keep my commandments.  * Further, while in this tent, we must present our spiritual bodies and mind to gather fruit of the kingdom.


Galatians 5:22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. * Most of the world is against this law of God and possess little or no fruit of life provided from heaven. Without repentance, baptism and the lay on of hands to receive the Holy Spirit, the world remains in utter chaos. Soon there will be time no more.


Revelations 10:5-7: The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his hand to heaven and swore by HIM who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer (time no more, KJV). But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound (7th trumpet), the mystery of God would be finished, as HE declared to HIS servants the prophets.


Those that have tasted the grace of God and are united in the love of God as a doer of HIS commandments are born again at resurrection. These few are gods within the family of God and by faith are righteous forever.


Isaiah 54:17: No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises (shall rise) against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from ME, says the Lord. * I remain your brother in Christ. Be blessed until we meet again.  *   Visit:   Cogwa.
