The Truth

Proverbs 11:2: When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom.

 

Pride is often an excessively high opinion of oneself. Pride is shame and dishonor to God because honor to oneself becomes another god.  Pride is disdainful treatment to mankind and worship of another god. Pride breaks the very first commandment of Exodus, chapter 20 and Deuteronomy, chapter 5.  Therefore all commandments are broken.

 

James 2:10: For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all. * The law of God is the law of heaven (Psalm 103:20). Soon the law of God will be the law of the kingdom of God on earth (Matthew 6:10). Only God (Elohim, including Jesus, Genesis 1:26) and the angels are currently in heaven

 

John 3:13: No one has ascended to heaven but HE who came down from heaven, that is the Son of Man (Messiah Jesus) who is in heaven.

 

The word “us” of Genesis 1:26 will also include many others at resurrection, as Jesus Christ set the example. Soon heaven will be established on earth. The power of God will do this. For every soul conceived is recorded in the book of our Creator* Psalm 139:16: Your eyes saw my substance (a fertilized egg) being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.

 

At resurrection the aborted and the stillborn have eternal days fashioned with a spiritual passport into the kingdom when Christ returns. They will be clothed with skin and flesh and knit together as Christ was resurrected. * Luke 24:39: Behold MY hands and MY feet, that it is I Myself. Handle ME and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have. * A prelude to resurrection is in the book of Job.

 

Job 19:25-27: For I know that my Redeemer lives, and HE shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in (out of) my flesh I shall see God. Whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! * The same power that brought forth the body of Adam from dust also has the power for resurrection to be alive in OUR image, according to OUR likeness (Genesis 1:26). However, the world is defiled with evil things.

 

Mark 7:20-23: And HE (Christ) said: What comes out of a man that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness (indecent), an evil eye( envy/jealously), blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man. * Isaiah 57:20-21: But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, says my God, for the wicked. * Pride is the origin of conflict for humanity. The lusts and passions of the wicked are like the troubled sea. If they have no peace with God while alive, greater troubles will bring no rest at judgment. Greater troubles will also arise with numerous other people.

 

Traditional worship of God in vain (Useless, empty, Mark 7:7, Matthew 15:9) mushroomed about 200 years after the resurrection of Christ. Worship of God was sanctified (made holy) on the seventh day. (Genesis 2:2-3). Historical records confirm the first day of the week was changed by man in the third century A. D. In the now age a good collegiate dictionary will tell you the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week is observed from Friday evening (sunset) to Saturday evening (sunset) as a day of rest and worship by Jews and some Christians. The seventh day Sabbath again is commanded by God as holy in Exodus 20:8: Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

 

There are 58 references in the New Testament documenting the seventh day Sabbath as the eternal law of God. The first day of the week is mentioned 8 times, but only one day possibly appears to be Sunday worship. In Acts, chapter 20, the Apostle Paul spoke to the brethren at the evening meal (breaking bread) before departing to be at Jerusalem, if possible, on the holy Day of Pentecost (Acts 20:16). Pentecost (Hebrew Shavuot, Shah-voo-oat or Shah-voo-os) is the firstfruit of the spring harvest (Numbers 28:26).

 

The harvest also represents the harvest of the people of God. Jesus rose from the dead to become the firstfruits of the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:20). The events of the harvest took place in the book of Ruth 2:23. The Moabite Ruth was the ancestor of King David (Ruth 4:17). Ruth forsook her pagan heritage, clinging to her Jewish mother-in-law, to worship the Lord as a Jew. * Ruth 1:15-16: And she (Naomi) said: Look, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law. But Ruth said: entreat me not to leave you, or to turn back from following after you; for wherever you go, I will go; and wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God, my God.

 

Pentecost is the third feast of the spring harvest and is a holy convocation (a Sabbath). * Leviticus 23: 2…The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are MY feasts. * Four more holy feasts (convocations) for the fall harvest follow Pentecost (Leviticus 23: 23-43).

 

On the holy Day of Pentecost (a Sabbath, a holy convocation) June 17, 31 A.D., as commanded by Christ, thousands gathered and were filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4). After hearing the preaching of Peter, three thousand souls were baptized (Acts 2:41). * The Holy Spirit empowered the Disciples of Christ to fulfill the command of God to be witnesses throughout the earth (Matthew 28:18-20). The Pentecost day of rest in the year 2014 is the 8th of June which is a holy Sabbath which falls on Sunday. The Pentecost day of rest, a Sabbath in the year 31 also fell on a Sunday. However, the seventh day Sabbath remains holy forever.  * I remain you brother in Christ. Be blessed until we meet again. * Visit   Cogwa. Org   *   Visit: LifeHopeandTruth.com
