THE LOST TEN TRIBES OF ISRAEL OR THE LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL

1Ki 11:31 And he said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee: There is a doctrine that is becoming very popular which says that there were only two tribes of Israel during the Messiah’s ministry and that the other ten tribes were lost; hence the need for the Master to go and look for them. It says that the ten northern tribes of Israel (House of Israel) were captured by and under captivity of Assyria and they did not return to their homeland when time came for them to return instead they became lost. Do the Scriptures say “lost tribes of Israel” or “lost sheep of Israel”? What is the difference? The “lost tribes” seem to mean that the ten tribes got lost and that they lost their identities. Whereas the “lost sheep of Israel” means the lost souls of the House of Israel with respect to being lost from the salvation of the Master or going astray from the ways and commandments of YHWH. Psa_119:176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments. Jer_50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place. Mat_10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Mat_15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Luk_15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? Luk_15:6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. DID THE APOSTLES MINISTER TO THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL? Jas 1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. Jas 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Jas 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. Act 26:6 And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:
Act 26:7 Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope’s sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews. WHAT IS GOD’S COVENANT WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND HOUSE OF JUDAH? Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. Jer 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Jer 31:35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: Jer 31:36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Heb 8:9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
Finally, Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Joh 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
Gal 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

ONLY ONE CAME BACK TO SAY THANKS

When one of them saw that he was healed, he came back. He praised God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him. – Luke 17:15 In given the rule of manners we were taught to say two
very important words. “Please and Thanks”. It was a way of showing gratitude and appreciation as well as respect. When you were reminded to say Thank you it was a way that your parent taught you to show thankfulness. Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. He traveled along
the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he was going into a village, ten men met him. They had a skin disease. They were standing close by. And they called
out in a loud voice, “Jesus! Master! Have pity on us!”Jesus saw them and said, “Go. Show yourselves to the priests.” While they were on the way, they were healed. – Luke 17:11-14 When one of them saw that he was healed, he came
back. He praised God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him. The man was a Samaritan.When Jesus saw the Samaritan, He
immediately wondered about the other nine men who had also been healed.Jesus asked, “Weren’t all ten healed? Where are the other nine? Didn’t anyone else return and give praise to God except this
outsider?”Then Jesus said to him, “Get up and go. Your faith has healed you.” Many of us, God have answered, and without a doubt we know that we have been healed undeserving. Jesus was
the one traveling. So he came their way. If Jesus had not come their way they would not have sought him out. We can look at it this way, that they were in Samaria a place of sin. Sin had affected them. They had Leprosy and had
become an outcast. It was ten of them. They saw Jesus and cried out… Have Pity. Yes there is some situations that will make you cry out. Jesus gave them instruction.
He commanded them to go show themselves to the Priest. On their way they were healed. Yes your obedience will cause a miraculous move of GOD. But look
what happened next. One noticed that he was healed and I am sure he alerted the others who checked themselves. But he was the one paying attention he was the one grateful. It was that Leper that came back to say thanks. God is looking for your gratitude in your attitude. Why?
Because he asked the one that said thanks, wasn’t it ten of you and only you came back. What have God done for you lately? When was the last time you Just out of a pure place just spent time being the one to come back and say thanks. GOD IS LOOKING FOR
YOU. HE WANTS TO HEAL… HE WANTS TO DELIVER.. HE WANTS TO SET FREE. BUT HE ALSO WANT TO SEE YOUR GRATITUDE. Maybe you want to know how. To begin with, Praise GOD
like YOU know it was him that has done such a great act of kindness. Be committed to this change. This is through fellowship. a consistent presence in a church, that you know has truth. Live a life centered on Gods will, purpose
and plan. STAY FOCUSED SOMETHING GOOD IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN TO YOU!!!

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Many people misunderstand what the Holy Ghost is. Some say the Holy Ghost is the THIRD Person of the TRINITY. Some call the Spirit as God the Holy Spirit as separate from the Father. They even pray to the Holy Spirit and give instructions to the Holy Spirit like “Spirit move”, “Spirit touch”, “Spirit heal”, etc. The 120 believers that were waiting for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit never prayed to the Holy Spirit and never gave instructions to the Holy Spirit but they prayed to the Father as taught by the Messiah. There are FALSE teachings about what the Spirit of Elohim is. There is need to understand what the Spirit of God really is. Mary was found with the child of the Holy Ghost and yet people say that the Holy Ghost is the THIRD person of the trinity after the Son whom they say is the SECOND person of the TRINITY. Mat 1:18 But the birth of יהושע Messiah was as follows: After His mother Miryam was engaged to Yosĕph, before they came together, she was found to be pregnant from the Set-apart Spirit. Mat_1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. The following are examples of characteristics of the Holy Spirit (Ruach Hakodesh):
EXAMPLES 1. THE SPIRIT IS POURED OUT The Father is not POURED out and neither is the Son POURED out. The Father POURS out His Spirit UPON believers from HIMSELF. Pro_1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Joe_2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
Joe_2:29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. Act_2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: Act_2:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 2. THE SPIRIT IS LIKENED TO RIVERS OF LIVING WATERS/ THE SPIRIT FLOWS
Joh 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. Joh 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. Joh 7:39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) 3. THE SPIRIT IS LIKENED TO OIL Mat 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. Mat 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Mat 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
Mat 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. Mat 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. Mat 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Mat 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. Mat 25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. Mat 25:9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
Heb_1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. 4. THE SPIRIT IS LIKENED TO WIND Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. Joh 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. 5. THE SPIRIT FILLS US Luk_4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, Act_6:3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. Act_7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, Act_11:24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord. Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 6. WE CAN BE MADE TO DRINK INTO THE SPIRIT OR WE CAN DRINK THE WATER OF THE SPIRIT Joh 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. Joh 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. Joh 7:39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 1Co_12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 7. THE FATHER GIVES TO US THE HOLY SPIRIT WHEN WE ASK IN FAITH
Luk_11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? HOLY MEN OF ELOHIM SPAKE AS THEY WERE MOVED BY THE HOLY GHOST 2Pe_1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. This is the divine way. The Spirit moves us to speak. Many misunderstand maybe because of the way translations were done. When the SPIRIT Moves you, you can speak the message from heaven. Luk_1:67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, Num_11:25 And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease. Num_11:26 But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.
1Sa_10:10 And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them. 1Sa_19:20 And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied. 1Sa_19:21 And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also. 1Sa_19:23 And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah. Act_19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. AN EXAMPLE IN SCRIPTURES IS WHERE IT SAYS THE HOLY GHOST SAID Act 13:2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. Act 13:3 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. These were simply MOVED by the Holy Ghost to speak the MIND of God or WILL of God. The Spirit connects us to the WILL or MIND of God. The believers were moved to speak as the Spirit gave them the utterance from the Father. THE SPIRIT LEADS Luk_4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, Rom_8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of Go WHAT IS THE SPIRIT OF ELOHIM? The following tell us what the Spirit of ELOHIM really is. 1. OLD TESTAMENT From Interlinear Scripture Analyzer (ISA) we have: H7307 ruwach roo’-akh from H7306; wind; by resemblance breath, i.e. a sensible (or even violent) exhalation; figuratively, life, anger, unsubstantiality; by extension, a region of the sky; by resemblance spirit, but only of a rational being (including its expression and functions). KJV: air, anger, blast, breath, X cool, courage, mind, X quarter, X side, spirit((-ual)), tempest, X vain, ((whirl-))wind(-y). 2. NEW TESTAMENT From Interlinear Scripture Analyzer (ISA) we have: G4151 pneuma pnyoo’-mah from G4154; a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze; by analogy or figuratively, a spirit, i.e. (human) the rational soul, (by implication) vital principle, mental disposition, etc., or (superhuman) an angel, demon, or (divine) God, Christ’s spirit, the Holy Spirit. Compare G5590. KJV: ghost, life, spirit(-ual, -ually), mind. The following describes the Spirit of Elohim: 1. Ghost 2. Spirit 3. MIND 4. Breath 5. Life 6. Wind/ Air 7. Oil 8. Living waters

THE SOUL THAT SINS SHALL DIE

Eze 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. Eze 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. When you sin you die or you start withering spiritually. A branch cut off from the vine dies and so is what happens when we sin and remain in sin. Staying with unconfessed sin cuts us off from the vine. Sin is a killer and kills! It is stronger than any man-made weapon. When you sin you are cut off from the vine and spiritual nourishment then you start dying. Your conscious slowly dies, your self-awareness slowly dies, etc and the evil crops in to take full control of you and you start bearing fruits accordingly. Rom 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. Rom 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. Rom 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

COME UNTO ME ALL YE THAT LABOUR & ARE HEAVY LADEN

The Messiah is calling those that LABOUR and are heavy laden to Himself for a better life. Laden means loaded, weighed down, burdened and over-loaded. He is calling those that are weighed down, burdened and over-loaded with labours, issues of life and challenges to carry His YOKE and learn of Him for He is Meek and lowly in heart, and that His YOKE is easy while His BURDEN is light unlike the worldly burdens we are carrying that are weighing us down in every area of our lives like health, strength, breath, life, etc. They are weighing us down from reaching out to the heavenly goal and life of abundance. Today every believer is carrying a heavy load of unforgiveness, worries about life issues, worries about what people will think about them, cares of this world, what they shall eat/dress, how they shall gain popularity in ministry, how they shall gather to themselves great following of people and so on. Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Many people labour and are heavy laden yet got no REST from the Messiah. It is for this reason the Messiah is calling all that labour and are heavy laden to come to Him. The following are instructions for Him to give us REST: (a) Take His YOKE upon you A Yoke is a coupling or a beam of balance. Therefore we must be yoked to Him and balanced to His lifestyle, ways, desires, mission and personality. We must be yoked to Him to be in line with His steps, direction, faith, cares, ways and in everything such that when He takes a step we should take exactly same step and when He stops we should stop and so on. This is similar to the children of Israel when they were being led by a cloud and by a pillar of fire. When the cloud stopped they stopped and pitched their tents and when it moved they moved. (Gen_9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. Exo_13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: (b) Learn of Him We must learn of Him and all His ways. Let’s go back to the Gospels and seriously learn about the way of life of the Messiah, what He did, what He did not, how He taught, How simple His life was, How caring He was, How forgiving He was, How a great blessing He was to the whole world, What His passion was, How He overcame challenges, How obedient He was to the Father, How humble He was, How hard He worked and served the Father, etc. 1Pe_2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: The reason why you should take His YOKE and learn of Him is because He is: (a) Meek The word “Meek” means humble, submissive, gentle, modest, compliant and mild. Are you submissive to relevant authorities and according to scriptures? Are you gentle? Are you modest? Are you compliant to scriptures and noble earthly regulations? Are you mild or excessive?
(b) Lowly in heart The word “Lowly” means humble, ordinary, simple, common, and modest. Are you ordinary? Are you simple? Are you modest? The Messiah lived a simple life! The Yoke of simple life is easy and the BURDEN of simple life is light. If you take His YOKE upon you and Learn of Him, you shall find REST unto your SOULS because: (a) His YOKE is EASY (b) His BURDEN is Light The REST that the Messiah promises is being refreshed or to be at ease even amidst all turmoils, challenges, persecution and all sorts of accusations and everything else from the Kingdom of darkness. The following is the advice from the Messiah and how you can take His YOKE and learn of Him: Mat 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Mat 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Mat 6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? Mat 6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: Mat 6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Mat 6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Mat 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? Mat 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Mat 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

REJOICE NOT OVER SOME THINGS

We are not to rejoice over the following: 1. When a believer stumbles Mic_7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me. 2. When our enemies fall or stumble Pro_24:17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth: 3. When spirits or demons are subject unto us Luk_10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
But rather rejoice about the following: 1. Salvation of souls Luk_15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. Luk_15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. Mat 18:12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? Mat 18:13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Mat 18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. 2. Our names written in the book of life Luk_10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

ARE YOU ABLE TO PREACH AGAINST YOUR OWN ERRORS & SHORT-COMINGS?

Many find it easily to preach against errors of others but NEVER their own errors. If you are able to preach even against your own errors & shortcomings then thou art YHWH fearing person, YHWH loving person, humble person and a just person. Scriptures say we should EXAMINE ourselves to see if we are right with YHWH, in YHWH’s truth, in YHWH’s faith and in the correct path. Failing to examine ourselves is fatal. If you are NOT able to see your own errors and short-comings then thou art BLIND and are likely a person that is full of PRIDE and self-righteousness. Those convicted by the Spirit of YHWH see their own errors and short-comings towards repentance. Those that reject the Spirit remain BLIND leaders and BLIND followers. Those that love and fear YHWH in truth preach, point out and try to correct errors and shortcomings of: (a) Their own (b) Their churches/ denominations and religions Those that serve their egos, bellies, selfishness and are proud only preach and point out errors of others but NEVER their own and even nurture and protect their own errors. They condemn others for committing the same sins they are committing yet they ignore their own sins. Any errors done by them are okay as long as not committed by others. In short, they are self-righteous and full of pride. Is your righteousness of YHWH or are you self-righteous? (Isa 54:17 …………….. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.) QUESTIONS
1. If you have divorced before, are you able to preach against evils of divorce to yourself and correct it? 2. If you have been committing adultery, are you able to preach this to yourself and correct it? 3. If you have stolen, are you able to preach against theft to yourself and correct it? 4. If you have treated others unfairly and unjustly, are you able to preach against injustice to yourself and correct it? 5. If you have taken another man’s wife or another woman’s husband, are you able to preach this to yourself and correct it? 6. If you have killed, are you able to preach this to yourself and correct (repent) it? 7. If you are following false doctrines, are you able to preach this to yourself and correct it? 8. If you are worshipping idols and false gods, are you able to preach this to yourself and correct it? POINTS TO NOTE 1. If you are not convicted when you sin, then you shall walk blindly in it to eternal destruction. 2. If you reject counsel, correction, advice and discipline, then you are likely to walk in error to eternal destruction. 3. If you are not SELF-AWARE, then you shall walk in sin, error, and so on without being aware of your short-comings and without being aware that you are destroying and injuring others to death. Many are not self-aware about their pride, selfishness, greediness, etc and such therefore do not have the Spirit of truth that convicts us of sin. 4. It is high time we started preaching to ourselves about our errors & short-comings and also preach to others that they may learn from us too. 5. It is VAIN to preach against adultery to others while you have not preached to yourself about it and have not corrected it in your life. 6. Preach to yourself and others. See errors in yourself and others. 7. You must be SELF-AWARE just like you are aware of others (their faults, personalities, strengths, weaknesses, etc). 8. Allow YHWH through His Spirit of life and righteousness BUILD your consciousness about truth, righteousness and justice. 9. Do not reject, by-pass, ignore, twist, condemn or do away with scriptures that convict you of sin, error and short-comings.

DO SINNERS HAVE ETERNAL LIFE?

The other question is: Shall sinners live eternally? Eze_18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. Eze_18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. Mat_19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? Joh_3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. Joh_5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 1Jn_5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. POINT TO NOTE 1. If sinners shall live eternally in hell fire that means sinners have eternal life but in pain. The question is, do sinners have eternal life? 2. Will sinners be punished eternally (infinite time) for sins they committed in a finite time? Joh 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: Joh 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. From John 17, it is clear that some shall have ETERNAL Life while others shall not have ETERNAL life. There is no SINNER that shall have ETERNAL Life. Nevertheless, many TEACH that SINNERS shall LIVE ETERNALLY which is contrary to inspired scriptures. WHAT IS THE LAKE OF FIRE? Rev_20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Rev_20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. It is the SECOND and ETERNAL DEATH from which there is NO RESURRECTION. Death and hell shall be thrown into the LAKE of FIRE; this means they shall be destroyed FOREVER. Rev_19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Rev_20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. THE FIRE IS UNQUENCHABLE BY SATAN AND MAN No one can quench this FIRE using whatever technologies we have. Only God can quench it. The fire cannot be quenched by Satan nor by any man and it shall burn until all that offends is burnt out of EXISTENCE!
Mat_3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. Luk_3:17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

THE MESSIAH IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE WHILE RELIGION IS DEATH

Joh_14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. The Son of man came that we may have life and have it more abundantly while religion was formed by man to bring death in every area of our lives (poverty, blindness, mental slavery, selfishness, pride, greediness, etc.) and the elevation, exhortation and worship of man and pagan gods. In religion men are gods while in the Kingdom of God, the Creator is God and men are men, and are brethren. In religion, men are fathers, Rabbis and gods of their followers while in the Kingdom of God the Creator is the Spiritual Father, and God of All. Do your research and you shall see that religion brings mental poverty and slavery!!! Joh 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Joh 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. Religion takes man, fills him with fear, brainwashes him, takes away logical reasoning and makes him a religious robot while in the Kingdom of God, God has given man freewill to make own choices and calls man to reason together with God. Isa_1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: Religion is Babylon and leading millions to death! Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

THEOLOGY IS NOT THE SOURCE OF SALVATION OF SOULS

Theology is not being systematic! This description is man-made. Being systematic is being systematic and being orderly is being orderly, simple as that. We should not be corrupted from the simplicity that is in the Lord into man-made theology which defines and limits the way we should teach and do things thereby limiting or putting aside the Spirit of God. Laid down methods will not do it but the love and power of the Spirit of God moving in the hearts of people will do it. 2Co_11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. The Gospel should be so simple. Arranging scriptures in a systematic and orderly manner is not Theology! We need the Gospel of Salvation that converts souls and not man’s wisdom which is just an entertainment to the flesh. We need hearts and mindsets converted! This is serious matter! 1Co_2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: In Greek, Theos is a general term for gods and the Almighty God and hence this word, Theos, is equivalent to the Hebrew word, Elohim. Greeks are Gentiles like ourselves and we cannot base doctrine on deriving terms from ‘Theos’ and come up with terms like Theology. We don’t need Theology but the word of God rightly divided and preached under the direction, guidance and anointing of the Spirit of God. Theology makes converts of denominations and does not deal with the heart but outward show. The words “They shall be taught by God” don’t mean to be taught by God directly only but as already said taught by God through various ways, some directly and others indirectly. God can teach through His servants, circumstances and so on. We cannot limit God to man-made ways like theology. QUESTIONS 1. Who came up with the Word “Theology”? 2. When did the word Theology come onto the scene? 3. Was this term used by the Lord and holy Apostles? 4. Why worship Theology as if it is a god? POINTS TO NOTE 1. Theology doesn’t convert the soul 2. The Word of God and the Spirit of God convert souls 3. The following is what we need and not Theology: Eze 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: Eze 11:20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God. Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. Psa_19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. Joh 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; Joh 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
WE NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN; THEOLOGY WILL NOT DO IT Joh_3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Joh_3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. 1Pe_1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
