The Truth

John 14:27: NKJV: Peace I leave with you, MY peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

 

The Messiah, Christ Jesus left a gift of peace to each of the Jewish disciples. These disciples walked as doers of all the commandments of God as Christ set example. Christ proved that even death is no reason to be troubled or afraid. Death is not final and servants of God will live again (Job 14:14). The gift of eternal life is also the change into eternal peace (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). When Christ returns victory over death will be fulfilled at Jerusalem (Revelations 21:2-4). Since creation and the subsequent fall of man nearly six thousand years ago, the world has never had peace. The world is a slave to sin and wars developed by Satan. The jealous hatred of Satan, the devil is to bring mankind into disobedience (sin) against God. The payment for disobedience is death, even eternal death. Romans 6:23a: For the wages of sin is death…. * Romans 6:23b… But the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Without this gift of the Holy Spirit of peace, death war and destruction continues from the beginning of creation. Peace has always been an interlude between war, death and destruction. However, we can overcome with repentance and lay on of hands to receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). With this power, we become obedient slaves of God and follow the rules spoken from heaven. Thereby, obedient law keepers have opportunity for eternal life after the first appointment with death (Hebrews 9:27-28). The wrath of God for disobedience to the law of heaven is soon coming.  

 

1 Thessalonians 5:2-3: For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say: Peace and safety! Then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.

 

From creation the entire world continues to be deceived (Genesis chapter 3, Revelation 12:9). The religions of the world have no understanding of the true path for eternal life in the soon coming kingdom of God (Matthew 6:10). Yet the coming kingdom is preached by the church of God that was established in Jerusalem (31 A.D.) on the Holy day of Pentecost. Three thousand faithful Jewish commandment doers received the Holy Spirit from heaven and were baptized (Acts 2:41). These three thousand faithful doers of the law of God received the Holy Spirit because they found peace with delight in keeping the law of the Lord.

 

Isaiah 58:13-14: If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on MY holy day, and call the Sabbath (seventh day) a delight, the holy day of the Lord honorable, and shall honor HIM, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words, then you shall delight yourself in the Lord; and I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, the mouth of the Lord has spoken. * However, the fall of Jerusalem and destruction of the temple quickly came in 586 B.C. and again in 70 A.D., because disobedience and iniquities separated mankind from God.

 

Isaiah 59:2: But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden HIS face from you, so that HE will not hear. * Hosea 8:12: I have written for him (Ephraim and entire world) the great things of MY law, but they were considered a strange thing. * Jerimiah 11:4: Obey MY voice, and do according to all that I command you; so shall you be MY people, and I will be your God.*

 

In the soon coming kingdom of God and peace, the law will become honorable and exalted for the saints.  * Isaiah 42:21: The Lord is well pleased for HIS righteousness sake; HE will exalt the law and make it honorable. * Revelation 14:12: Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. * Faith is without sin as Jesus set example. The faith of Jesus includes teaching of truth about sin. * 1 John 3:4: Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness and sin is lawlessness. * Faith of Jesus for the saints who keep the commandments of God will understand the truth of God for the coming kingdom. These few people that worship God on the seven annual festivals (Sabbaths) of Leviticus, chapter 23 as Jesus set example. The four autumn harvests represent the autumn harvest of obedient people of God.

 

The Feast (Festival of Trumpets (thump) represents the second coming of Christ Jesus (Leviticus 23:24, 1 Corinthians 15:52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16). The Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27-32) by fasting represents the time when the entire world will be one with God because Satan is bound for a thousand years (Revelation 20:2). The Feast of Tabernacles (Booths, Ingathering) represents the thousand years that Christ Jesus and the resurrected saints will reign on earth. The eighth and last Great Day (Leviticus 23: 36, 39) represents judgment and freedom for mankind as Jesus taught in John, chapter 8. In chapter seven, Jesus celebrated the feast by teaching in the temple. At the end of the last Great Day (day seven), Jesus went to the Mount of Olives and returned early into the temple (day eight) and taught * John 8:31-32: Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed HIM: If you abide in MY word, you are MY disciples indeed. And you shall know (do) the truth and the truth shall make you free.

 

The eternal kingdom of God for the saints of the first resurrection is the beginning of eternity as saints are trained to make ready for greater accomplishments and joy beyond the millennium.

 

2 Thessalonians 3:16: Now may the Lord of peace HIMSELF give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. * Jude 24-25: Now to HIM who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of HIS glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen. * I remain your brother in Christ. Be blessed until we meet again.
