Since the time of The Reformation we have seen a slow return to the acceptance of the work of the cross and The Baptism with Holy Spirit as a personal choice, made with understanding.
We have seen believers in the work of the cross broken into fragmented groups or denominations.
We have seen the same in regard to believers in the work of the Baptism with Holy Spirit, as well as a general opposition from those who have believed in the work of the cross and feel that it is sufficient for full Salvation.
But we have not seen unity, which can only be had in Oneness of belief with understanding.
ĎConsider A Warningí is seeking to bring to light what are the obstacles for whosoever would seek to know God.
Godís Way to Himself is profound and unique.† His New Covenant is its crown, and its benefits are geared to promote praise to God.
There is no division, diversity or compromise allowed and the glory of righteousness creates a warning.† Whereas, in the church today there is division, diversities and compromise which have established their own Ďrighteousnessí and have bred an intolerance to warnings.
To believe that all is well because all that one has to do, as a Christian, is to go to church, to pray every day and to fellowship with Christians, requires a WARNING.
It is required by God of us that we do His Will.
To do this we must Know Him, to fellowship with Him as we do with Christ, who shall judge us as to the doing of His God and Fatherís Will.
Ephesians 1: 17-18
THE NEW COVENANT PROMISES AND CONDITIONS.
THEY HOLD PROMISES BUT GIVE WARNINGS.
Generally the natural man hates warnings, because they speak of boundaries and limitations.
Warnings given, by the Lord God Almighty, are for those who have faith in Jesus Christ as their Saviour, and those who are Baptised with Holy Spirit.† Such warnings which cannot be diminished nor enlarged by what man may consider to be the relative significance of Godís warnings to them.† What God makes applicable to be warned about, is a very serious matter, for He will not change His mind; He is not a man that He should lie, or give into emotional sympathy of understanding when what He has said has not been observed and obeyed, especially in regard to The Promises held in†† The New Covenant.
Mankind, generally is looking for quick fixes and easy solutions.† However when it comes to the things of God, and the life that He expects of us, there are none, especially concerning the promises of God, in relation to The New Covenant, because they are the result of a very powerful, costly, spiritual work which has been accomplished by God and Christ for whosoever would believe.
God, The Father, who has promised to write His Laws in our hearts and on our minds, has purposed that the knowledge of what He is and who He is, with the giving of His Holy Things and Holy Offerings will be received and made known by revelation to those who would obey His Will, and seek to be like his Son Jesus Christ.†
So many Christians do not know just how much has been offered them from God Himself, apart from the facts that the counsellors to new Christians tell them, which is generally what they have been given.† But the warnings in regard to any neglect in fulfilling what is Godís Will, which hold an eternal consequence for their neglect, are not so clearly declared.
A great many
Christians are living on assumptions, because they fail to check up for
themselves from The Word of God after hearing what men teach them.
Many will be surprised to know that what they have been led to believe, is in opposition to God and Christ.† There is a lazy assumption by many Christians because, in failing to understand what is Godís work for their Salvation, assume that it must be O.K., if most people around them believe the same.† So it must be right.
It is this confidence that can encourage the believer to be careless to the warnings in regard to the expected walk in holiness and righteousness and as a result there is a lack of the desire to thirst after the teaching of righteousness in order to discern what is good and what is evil.
The Gospel of
God and of Christ is an invitation to all men of all nations.
It is an invitation with warnings : just as the ignoring of His Invitation, holds a warning.
GODíS PROMISES GIVE WARNINGS.
We love promises which are often used as an inducement for a man to come personally in repentance to God.††† Acts 20:21
Great promises are in Godís New Covenant which many have heard of but only in association with the cross, believing them to be in Jesusí death.† Therefore the result is that they remain ignorant of what it is and what is Godís Intention for it.† It is the importance of their commitment and responsibility to The New Covenant, with its warning, which is so important, that the writer of Hebrews emphasises Godís warnings throughout the book, in association with The New Covenant, twice declaring what it is and along with it the warnings, to those who participate in it.
The New Covenant holds for believers an awesome promise as it is the fulfilment of† The Way and The How of knowing God Himself.† It has been brought about and balanced with the Death of Jesus, as this cost him his Life.† That is why The Promise is balanced with A Warning, of NOT to sin, because there is no further sacrifice, because of the cost.† References to The New Covenant† -† Hebrews 8: 10-13†††† 10: 15-18
FOUNDATION IS THE CROSS.
The Stake, where Jesus died and was lifted up, has stood spiritually through many generations. It is in his death that the warning of The New Covenant is highlighted.
When Jesus related to his death, he broke bread and he said, ď This is my body which will be broken in death.Ē
He then introduced The Cup saying, ďThis is ĎTHE CUPí OF THE NEW COVENANT......IN MY BLOOD, WHICH IS POURED OUT FOR ALL THE WORLD.Ē†††† Luke 22: 7-20
The Cup that Jesus spoke of at the time of The Last Supper and in The Garden of Gethsemane was The Cup of Death, which required of Jesus his Death, in order for God to revoke His Curse upon all mankind, which was due to Adamís sin, and who now can be delivered from The Curse because of Jesusí shed blood.
Blood that was Spiritually poured as Jesus in totality of obedience to His God and Father, gave himself to Death so that what work was achieved was established for ALL mankind and which will remain because the blood was Spiritually poured, which means ďthe work done and complete and fixes it in place according to Godís Word.Ē
warned his disciples regarding his death, Peter believing his own wisdom,
rebelled, and Jesus rebuked him.† He did
not understand the full significance of the death of Jesus, which was
carried out according to The Old Covenant Stipulations, which should give
believers understanding of the meaning of Jesus as Godís Lamb.† And it should raise the question : why did
God need a Lamb for Himself?†† Acts 20:
28††† John 1:
Jesus, was Godís necessary Lamb for God to revoke His curse on all mankind, and to inaugurate The New Covenant.
God, planned for this event since the time of Noah, and how it would be accomplished.
GENESIS 9: 5-6†† A PLAN OF GREAT LOVE AND MERCY.
In this Plan
God lovingly, placed Himself, in the position of being in merciful obligation
to men, calling on Him to shed His own blood, because He had caused men to shed
blood to Him.
He required a Lamb to accommodate this.† A Lamb, a man, who would shed his blood for real Ė for God.†
This can be called Godís Criteria of the Blood.† God in His Old Covenant called for men to shed blood, by circumcision and sin sacrifices as a sign of desired submission and obedience to Him.† It was by His own Plan, as instigator of men shedding their blood, by animals as representatives of man He was obligated to shed His blood by a man.† This was Godís Plan, to remove the obstacles before man in coming to Himself.
Jesus as a man, as Godís Lamb, with God in him by His Spirit, was Godís Representative and was crucified, shedding his blood for godís purposes for mankind, in order to revoked His curse of Death, and to give a New Promise for all men who would believe.† This Plan was carried out at the cross with the purpose of a New Covenant.
Genesis 9: 5**† It was Godís condition to give accountability to the life of a man, and of animals, that makes sense of Godís sacrificial plans for all sacrifices that were to count before God as Ďthe shedding of oneís bloodí.† Faithful men believed this and it was accounted to them.
The confirmation of This Truth was the resurrection of The Holy Ones at The Death of Jesus.† When God, as promised, fulfilled His ĎObligationsí of Love to them.† Heaven was opened for all man kind, to enter by believing in Jesus as The Way to The Father.
Warning : Genesis 2: 15**†† What costly lengths God has gone to too revoke His Curse which was due to Adamís ignorant disregard of Godís warning to him of Death, if he would disobey His Law.† Adam discovered to his loss and for all mankind THAT GOD MEANS WHAT HE SAYS.
PLAN THAT STANDS:
Many would believe Jesus to be The Pascal Lamb of The Passover which delivered the households of Israel from the Angel of Death.† Jesus as Godís Lamb was to do a different errand by his death on the cross, which was of a greater magnitude than The Historical Passover.
It was after
the remembrance of The Passover that Jesus introduced The Cup of Death
of The New Covenant, by which The Death Factor was to be dealt with powerfully.†
The Cup of Death contained the work of the cross AND the work of The Instantaneous Spiritual Process.
The work of the cross does not deliver us from death but calls for †the believer, by The Instantaneous Spiritual Process, to go into Death, and through it, in order to be raised out of its Realm by God, The Father : in order to be Baptised with Holy Spirit by Christ and be placed in Life, by God The Father.
This work is confirmed in Romans 6: 3-14 and Colossians 2: 9-15 which describes The Instantaneous Spiritual Process which precedes immediately before and results in Baptism with Holy Spirit.
This is when we can say that we are Born Again.
John 1: 29††† John 3: 16††† Colossians 1: 19-20††† Acts 20: 28††† Matthew 27: 51-53††† John 3: 13††† Hebrews 9: 24††† Hebrews 9: 11-28††† 1 Corinthians 15: 42-57††† John 1: 3††† Ephesians 1: 13-14††† 1 Corinthians 12: 13-18††† Psalm 123††† Galatians 1: 1††† Psalm 23
Warning :† A false foundation has been given to the believer, that they were raised out of Death at the cross, believing before Water Baptism (a material baptism) that they are Born Again.† No one is Born Again UNTIL they are Baptised with Holy Spirit which is a Spiritual Baptism, when one is washed and Born Again of Living Spirit Water.†††† John 3: 3-6†
17-21†††† Titus 3: 4-8††† 1 Corinthians 12: 13-18
Warning : It is worthy to note Godís purpose and emphasis to this Truth that the priests in The Old Testament Tabernacle WERE WARNED BY GOD, that they were to wash with the water in the Laver before entering The Holy Place.† Warning was of Death if disobeyed.
This Law was the forerunner and shadow which emphasised The Baptism of ĎGodís Promised Spirití which is essential to be in, to enter the presence of God, because He is Holy.† It will be no accident for one TO enter into Godís Presence but only a neglect to know Godís Plan of the giving of His Promised Spirit in order that one CAN ENTER His Presence.
THE CROSS AND THE INSTANTANEOUS PROCESS ARE THE MECHANICS OF GOD, WHICH DO NOT BELONG TO THE NEW COVENANT, BUT BRING IT ABOUT.† THEY ARE THE NECESSARY SPIRITUAL WORK THAT HAS TO BE DONE FOR WHOSOEVER WOULD KNOW ETERNAL LIFE.
It is on account of the mechanics of The Cup of Death, in the cross and The Instantaneous Process, that the believer is qualified to come to life, to be Baptised with Holy Spirit, and which gives entrance and identification to The New Covenant Promises of God.† It is when the totality of the mechanics are accomplished, that because the believer has been Spiritually Circumcised from Death, that God Himself, by His Spirit through the believer, will testify that this work is done, by declaring through the believerís mouth in the language of The Spirit †ďJesus is Lord.Ē† Yes!† In Tongues.
was The Cup of Death where Life was dealing with Death.
The New Covenant is LIFE, to give us abundant Life, because we are in The Spirit of God.
Galatians 3: 14††† Romans 2: 29††† 1 Corinthians 12: 3††† John 15: 26††† Philippians 2: 10-11††† Hebrews 10: 22-27†††† Ephesians 4: 5-6
Warning :† To deny the work of The Instantaneous Process, as a powerful force which is necessary to take one from Death to Life, is to deny God His Confirmation, that the Work of Jesus is done.
13-14††† Jeremiah 9: 25††† Romans 2: 29
Warning :† Abraham was warned by God that not to be circumcised in the flesh would indicate ĎNo Covenant Agreement with Godí and there would be a cutting off from those who were circumcised.† Jeremiah prophetically stated Godís warning when he said ďThe days are coming when I will punish all who are only circumcised in Ďthe fleshí.Ē† Paul states in Romans the fulfilment and the importance of The Spiritual Circumcision which is only made possible through the work of The Instantaneous Spiritual Process, which as a result of we are brought into a New Covenant Agreement with God, and receive Godís Praise.
THE CROSS IS NOT TO OVERSHADOW, OUTWEIGH, DIMINISH, TO MAKE DIM, TO ECLIPSE IN ORDER TO OBSCURE ITS PURPOSE WHICH MUST BE SEEN, IN ORDER THAT GOD THE FATHER IS GLORIFIED AND THE PLAN OF GOD FOR MANíS SALVATION IS ACCOMPLISHED.
The cross was a work to give Hope, but it is not sufficient to give assurance of Eternal Life, because its work does not automatically deliver the believer from Death but the Spirit of Christ in them gives the Hope of the Deliverance, out of Death;† to be free of its Laws, BY THE WORK OF THE INSTANTANEOUS PROCESS WHICH RESULTS IN BEING BAPTISED WITH HOLY SPIRIT.
5-6††† Deuteronomy 4: 2†††† Revelation 22: 18-19
Warning :† God warns against adding to and taking away from His Word.
†††††††††††††††††† The church has been guilty of adding to the work of the cross and so has taken away from the powerful, spiritual work which sees one Spiritually Circumcised from Death and its Judgements and Baptised into Godís Spirit, who places us† ĎIn Christí.
The reason for this is that they have added to Christís position by making him to be God, and so have taken away the potency of what is Godís Work alone, and His full Plan of Full Salvation.
The cross and the Baptism with Holy Spirit do not give the assurance of Eternal Life : but hope of it.
Because God has revoked The Curse, He has given another Invitation and warning to man.
To those who believe and come to the cross, God forgives their past sins, which saves them from Hell.
They receive The Spirit of Christ from God The Father and are put by God into The Kingdom of His Ďdear Soní :† which is NOT The Body of Christ BUT his Spiritual Kingdom which is in The Death Realm.† The believer will remain there until they seek and ask to be Baptised with Holy Spirit.† It is in The Instantaneous Spiritual Process work, that achieves Ďall sins forgivení so that God raises them from Death.† As a result they are Baptised with Holy Spirit, by Christ, and are then place/Baptised by God The Father, into The Body of Christ.† i.e.† In Christ, where God The Fatherís Spirit is over all, through all and in all.† They are called ĎSons of Godí, co-heirs with Christ.
Colossians 1: 27**††† Romans 3: 25††† Romans 5: 9††† Matthew 13: 37-42††† Colossians 1: 13-14††† Romans 4: 7† not 8,†††† Romans 8: 10† not 11,††† Colossians 1: 27† not 28.††† Galatians 3: 14††† Colossians 2: 9-13††† Romans 6: 3-14††† Romans 2: 29††† Matthew 13: 47-50††† 1 Corinthians 12: 13-18
Now Romans 8: 11† and† Colossians 1: 28††† Matthew 15:13††† Ephesians 4: 5-6††† Romans 8: 17
Warning :† Those who have only been to the cross and
are Spiritually in Christís Kingdom, which is in The Death Realm, must not be
bound against deliverance from this Realm.
They must urgently ask Jesus for Baptism with Holy Spirit in order to be raised out of The Death Realm, and not be condemned with Death.

14-18††† John 14: 13-15††† Acts 1: 4-5††† John 15: 14-15
Warning : **† Jesus said my friends are those who obey my commands.† He has given what is a God given command to ĎBe Baptisedí with Holy Spirit.† Those who are unbelieving in regard to this command, will be condemned.
Warning :† There is no work that I can do to achieve
the work of the cross, or the work of The Instantaneous Process.† But there is a work I must do to gain
This is to know Godís plan of Salvation and to know The Father and Christ in fellowship, and to do Godís Will, as Jesus did, and not to sin deliberately but to be an over-comer.
If we do this, Revelation 3: 11-12 will apply and not the situation of Matthew 7: 21-23.
8:19††† Deuteronomy 10: 20† -†
Warning : **† Be warned against other gods, who would deform Godís Plan and purposes for manís full salvation.† Never forget who is God, who is to be our Praise and Your God.
WHOM DOES THE NEW COVENANT APPLY?
The New Covenant and its Promises and Warnings definitely only apply to those who are Baptised with Holy Spirit, because all sins have been forgiven by God.† AND are a Hope to the Unbaptised with Holy Spirit, because of Ďpast sinsí being forgiven.† Romans 4: 7 & 8
Jesusí death as Godís Lamb, and The Instantaneous Process have the same relationship to The Old Covenant Stipulations and Regulations; each having its given stipulated result of work in the sacrifice.† In regard to any particular sacrifice, the Stipulations and Regulations spoke powerfully as to what work it achieved.
Just as Jesusí sacrifice was a Guilt Offering and the blood was sprinkled, which said ďwork done, but go onĒ, this being in relation to the individual believer as they come to the cross and believe.† Whereas the poured out blood in relation to Jesusí Death was the work of Revoking Godís Curse for The World.† Then we see how that The Instantaneous Process for the believer is in relationship to The Burnt Offering, which describes how and why, we are washed with Living Spirit Water.† We are not washed in the BLOOD, but because of its work on the cross, we are qualified to be Baptised with Holy Spirit.† i.e. The receiving of Godís Promised Spirit.
John 1: 29††† Leviticus Chap 1 Ė 7† &† 16†††† Isaiah 53: 10††† 1 Peter 1: 2††† Galatians 3:14
IS THE NEW COVENANT?
Luke 1: 77-79†† The prophecy of The New Covenant was first declared in Jeremiah 31: 33-37.† Zechariahís prophecy over his son was the evidence that Godís promise of a New Covenant was at last to be fulfilled.† He was also announcing indirectly that the time was at hand for God to give His Promised Spirit to those who were partakers of His New Covenant.
In Ezekiel 36: 26-27, we see prophetic promises of the presence of The Spirit of Christ and of The Spirit of God, in the believers, and both of whom are essential to be in the person, in order to receive The New Covenant and the promises which are found in† :†
Hebrews 10: 15-18†††† Hebrews 8: 10-12
I will put My Laws in their hearts and write them on their minds.
Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more, and where these have been forgiven there is no longer any sacrifice for Sin.
When God made this Covenant which was prophetic at that time, He confirmed it with another Oath, that by His power as Creator.† It is when the mechanics, of the cross and The Baptism, are completed in the believer, that He confirms His Covenant Promise, His Work and Christís full work as lamb and Baptiser with Holy Spirit, by declaring through the believer, that ĎJesus is Lordí.
works God and Christ have done to restore man into fellowship. Because of that
fact, He will allow Ďno further sacrificeí for sin which is wilful, deliberate
and on going sin.
There is no Ďlicence to siní.
In Revelation, Jesus cemented this to the church calling for her to be an over-comer, without which Eternal Life will not be inherited.
Galatians 4:6††† John 14: 23††† Ephesians 4: 5-6††† John 1: 29-33††† 1 Corinthians 12: 3††† Revelation 2: 7, 11, 17, 26-29,††† Revelation 3: 5, 11-12, 21†††† 1 John 1: 7-10††† 1 John 5: 1-5††† 1 John 2: 22-25
10:9††† Philippians 2: 10-11†††† 1 Corinthians 12: 3
Warning : **†† If there is no testimony of God, by His Spirit, testifying through the believer† ĎJesus is Lordí in the Spiritual Language of Tongues, which means that the work of The Instantaneous Spiritual Process, has not been accomplished in the believer.
Warning :† To believe that the work of the cross Ďis
totally sufficientí for immediate deliverance out of The Death Realm, means
that one will remain in Death and be condemned with Death.† Jesus has warned us.
Mark 16: 14-18†††† Revelation 20: 12
Warning :† To believe that one is secure in Eternal
Life because of having been to the cross and been Baptised with Holy Spirit,
without Ďover-coming sinÖí denies the reality of Godís conditions for Eternal
Life to those who are Sons of GodÖ.íGo and sin wilfully no moreí.

Warning :† Before Baptism with Holy Spirit, Death in us
was a strong opposition to Life.† Now in
Life it is to be in strong opposition to Death, or we will perish.† If we continue after all that has been said
and done, by wilfully sinning, you will perish, because this is Godís Plan to
deal with this condition.† We are to
condemn sin as useless, as Jesus did, and to know cleansing of any defilement
by any unintentional sin, by the confession of it to God The Father.† We are cleansed because of the work of the

INSTANTANEOUS WORK OF THE CROSS.
Can you imagine the joy of those in heaven, when Christ, by his blood clearing the Heavens, opened them.† He returned to His God and Father, victorious with The Holy Ones.
The Holy Ones who included such righteous ones as Abraham, Isaiah, Jeremiah were set free when Jesus died because the penalty of the curse and their sins committed under The First Covenant, was dealt with when Jesus died.† Such was the power of the work of the cross for them.
They had been judged by God already, before Death, and credited with Righteousness, as they had adhered to His ĎCriteria of The Bloodí.† After their death, they entered Paradise and waited there because heaven was closed; its opening required Godís revoking of The Curse, upon all mankind.† By the work of the cross this was accomplished and so they were resurrected out from Paradise and went with Christ Jesus to The Kingdom of Heaven, where
they became the Foundation of The Spiritual Temple into which we are also built into by Christ.
They are alive and spiritually we are with them, as we sit Spiritually with them in The Heavens.† We believe, they do behold us and wait for us.
They will rule
with Christ in his 1000 years reign, with those In Christ, who are judged by
Christ as doing The Fatherís Will, and together afterwards, we will enter The
Eternal City of God, in The New Heavens and The New Earth.
They are the evidence of the willingness of men who symbolically shed their blood in faith as a sign of commitment to God and His Laws.† It is by this continuing principle of our willingness to symbolically shed our blood by total commitment to God and His Laws that shall be an everlasting sign, to God and to Christ, until we enter that eternal city, The Kingdom of God.† This Kingdom is not to be confused with The Kingdom of Heaven, which is where those who are Baptised with Holy Spirit are in already.
Hebrews 9:24††† Hebrews 9: 15††† John 3: 13††† Matthew 27: 51-53††† Ephesians 4: 7-10††† Ephesians 2: 18-22††† 1 Peter 2: 2-5††† Hebrews 11: 40††† Isaiah 52: 7-10††† Revelation 19: 11 Ė 20: 6††† Daniel 7: 13-14††† Revelation Chaps 21, 22††† Matthew 13: 47-50
Warning :† The work of the cross, completed all that
was required by God to see The Resurrection of the Old Testament Saints, as
they had already been judged by God as Righteous.† This does not apply for those who would come today for Eternal
Life, because the work of God would have the believer Spiritually circumcised
out of Death and in Life, In Christ, before his physical Death.†
Romans 8: 1-2
CHRISTíS PROGRESSIVE POSITIONING BY GOD WAS FOR THE PURPOSE OF OUR SALVATION
yesterday, today and forever is in what ever position God ordained him to be
in.† Every position and name/work that
Christ has been in, is in and will be in, has been given by appointment by God in
the purposes of God.
In John 17: 5, Jesus asks The Father to give him back The Glory [what he was] that he had BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN.
Did he not know in his pre-existence The New Glory that God had planned for him?
Before the foundation of the world, the one we know as Christ, was chosen by God, and placed in a position of authority, as The Angel of The Lord, chief messenger of God.† When he was sent, he came as The Son of Man he came as The Messenger of The Covenant.
When Jesus was promised to Joseph and Mary, it was said that he would be a Saviour, but he did not become a Saviour, until his death on the cross.
came to earth, to be Godís Lamb for Sacrifice ; he was The Son of God, but he did
not enter into the position of being†
The Son† of God until after
his resurrection, when God The Father exalted him to being Christ and Lord,
thus entering the position and work of The Son of God as Christ and Lord,
High Priest and Head of The Church.
Before Jesus came as The Son of Man, he met Abraham in Genesis 14 : 18, he was Priest, not High Priest.† He was to come and to die and be raised before he was exalted to High Priest, as the Son of God, Christ and Lord.† He is not yet King of the Earth but Prince of his own Spiritual Kingdom, and Head of the Church.† His time as being King over all the earth for 1000 years is yet to come, according to Godís timing, purpose and plan.† He is Lord over all that God has given him to be Lord over in what ever is in relation to Godís purposes for him.
As Christ progressed
in his journey out of Heaven into this world and now ĎIn The Heavensí, these
names, which are descriptive of his works, most have been fulfilled.
He is now in A HIGHER POSITION THAN HE WAS IN BEFORE THE CREATION OF THE EARTH.† This is by Godís appointment.
When Jesus died, his confidence in His Father was perfect as he willingly gave his Life for His God and Fatherís will and purposes.† Jesus suffered death, going into The Realm of Death, where he preached to those eternally bound in death, who are still kept in waiting for judgement by God.† Jesus knew His Father would not leave him in Death, where he was to go, remembering that Death could not hold him, while he was in the depths of Death.
The whole purpose of God and His appointments of Christ was in order for Christ to work with God The Father by and through the necessary work to be carried out in order for God to say to men of the future generations, ďI will remember your sins no moreĒ.† The peculiar position that God planned and predestined for those who believe in the work of the cross and the Baptism, is to be seen as Holy and Blameless, to become what we are in His sight, by the power of His Spirit.
is of Position and does not relate to a person being chosen for Salvation by
God, as God has said† ďWhosoever will
may comeĒ.† It is only by and
through the work of God and His Son, that anyone can come to God.† And Jesus is The Way for ďWhosoeverĒ
would come to God.† It is only
because Christ returned to His Father that we too can go to God, and to know
Him, and by His Power we are expected to do greater things than Jesus did.
Malachi 3: 1-2††† John 1: 29††† Romans 1: 3-4††† Acts 2: 31-36††† Matthew 13: 37-42††† Colossians 1: 13-14††† Ephesians 1: 21-22††† Acts 1: 6-11††† Revelation 3: 11-12††† Hebrews 5: 5-6††† Hebrews 8: 10-14††† Ephesians 1: 3-14††† Hebrews 10: 14††† 2 Peter 1: 3-4
CHRIST JESUS IS TO BE OUR EXAMPLE IF WE WOULD KNOW HIS FULNESS.
Jesus as The Son of Man stood in the Gap of the Breach : the separation between God and man.† He now stands as the Son of God with the work of Lamb of God and as Baptiser, available for all who would believe and became the source of eternal salvation for all who would partake of his full work as Lamb and Baptiser in order that believers grow into his Fullness.
GOD STATED IN HIS WORD† ďNO MAN CAN REDEEM THE LIFE OF ANOTHER OR GIVE TO GOD A RANSOM FOR HIM.† THE RANSOM FOR A LIFE IS COSTLY NO PAYMENT IS EVER ENOUGH THAT HE SHOULD LIVE ON FOREVER AND NOT SEE DECAYĒ.† Psalm 49: 7-9
God, The Father had looked for one, who would be one in mind and purpose, with HimselfÖ. Moses, Daniel and Isaiah all pleaded for Israel, but these men could not stand in the gap, so God brought forth his Chief Angel, and sent him into a prepared body, to be a human body so as to be a Son of Man.
So he came.† Conceived by God Himself, God sent His Son into the world.† He grew up, learning the difference between good and evil, and learned obedience through suffering and by his reverent submission to God, he was made perfect.†† Hebrews 5: 7-10
At the age of thirty he began a three ministry, when he was Baptised with The Spirit of God, by God Himself, this fulfilled his title of Immanuel.† He spoke Godís Word, as Godís Word.† The fullness of God The Father dwelt in him by His Spirit, even to and on the cross.
**Jesus was The Man who was Godís Lamb and by God dwelling in him, God shed His blood to fulfil His own Criteria.† Genesis 9: 5-6††† Colossians 1: 19-20††† Acts 20: 28
He came, lived and died and was raised out of Death, by God The Father, and was exalted to the position of Christ and Lord, and Prince of The Temple, and his Kingdom.
There is no other one, or way, but †through Christ, who is not a blackened coal without Life, but a Ďrefiners fireí to bring us to God.† By his works we come to The Father and are built by Christ, into the Temple Wall, OF THE SPIRITUAL TEMPLE IN EXISTENCE NOW IN THE HEAVENLIES.† IT IS HERE WE ARE TO GROW SPIRITUALLY INTO THE LIKENESS OF CHRIST IN ORDER TO KNOW HIS FULNESS.
Warning :† If there is no Spiritual transformation into the likeness of Christ, we will not be recognised by God nor by Christ.
THE TOTAL WORK OF JESUS CHRIST AS LAMB OF GOD AND BAPTISER,
is powerfully represented in the phrase,† ĎIN THE NAME OF JESUSí.
As Sonís of God, co-heirs with Christ, we have known the power of his work, i.e, his name.
This phrase is to be our Spiritual Identification with Christ and his Work.† This phrase is not intended to be used to take the place of Christ.† It does not mean that Christ always speaks to The Father on our behalf; but He does where there is the need of interceding.† The believer is to speak to God Himself and uses the phrase ĎIn The Name of Jesusí as access and recognition of Christís Work that has enabled us to come to The Father.
Hebrews 10:5††† Isaiah 7: 14-16††† Matthew 1: 21-23††† John 12: 47-51††† John 1: 1††† Colossians 1: 19-20††† Ephesians 1: 19-20††† Galatians 1: 1††† Romans 1: 3-4††† Acts 2: 31-36††† Acts 5: 29-32††† Ezekiel 44: 3††† Matthew 13: 37-42††† Zechariah Chap 3††† Ephesians 2: 18-22††† 1 Peter 2: 4-7††† Romans 8: 26-27††† 2 Peter 1: 3-11 (which is speaking of his rule as King over the earth for 1000 years).
Warning :† Those who do not enter through this man, by ignoring his work as Lamb of God, and as Baptiser with Holy Spirit, shall know The Eternal Judgement of God.† Those who use† ĎThe Name of Jesusí, but they have not known The Full Work of Christ, they are in delusion as to their Spiritual Authority and Position over all that which his name prevails.
THE WAY TO THE FATHER IS A STIPULATED PROGRESS SUPERVISED BY CHRIST AND THERE IS NO OTHER WAY.
The Tabernacle and the Temples built to God on earth, all reveal A Progressive Spiritual Journey, from the world into Godís presence, and must be known by the believer to have Hope to inherit Eternal Life, because of Christís work as The Way to The Father.
This journey reveals, divisions or departments from one area to another, and is strongly displayed in the present, Spiritual, Heavenly Temple as described by Ezekiel in Chapters 40 Ė 47.
These entrances and exits are strongly and emphatically declared and are therefore not to be ignored and seen as UNNECESSARY, while their presence is very obvious.† Like the matter of The New Covenant they are spoken of within the space of a few chapters in the same Book of Ezekiel, which gives evidence of Godís emphatic Law as to His Plan and purposes for man and Christ.
According to the plan of Ezekielís Temple, the believer will first enter The Courts which speak of Christís Spiritual Kingdom, which is entered by coming to the cross.† Here Christ is Prince, and by his Spirit which is in the believerís spirit.† As Prince, he guards the Gate of entry to The Sanctuaries, which is only gained through Baptism with Holy Spirit, by Christ.
He encourages those in The Courts to enter The Outer Sanctuary.† This is his purpose because it is Godís Will.† It is God The Father, who is The One and only One who by His Spirit, will allow entry into The Inner Sanctuary, where His Throne is.
HOWEVER entrance into The Inner Sanctuary, where Godís Throne is, will only be allowed by Him if there is no Idolatry of His Son as God.† They will be able to serve, as priests in The Temple, but God The Father will not allow them near to serve Him, nor come near His Holy Offerings or Things.
Ezekiel 44: 3††† Ezekiel 43: 10-11††† Matthew 13: 37-42††† Colossians 1: 13-14††† Romans 8: 10††† Galatians 4:6††† Colossians 1: 27††† Matthew 13: 47-50††† Matthew 15: 13††

Warning :† Those who refuse to realise the important role of the Exits and The Entrances and the Full Work of Christ, not only as Lamb but his High Priestly work as Baptiser with Holy Spirit, will not arrive into a relationship with God The Father and His New Covenant Agreement.† Godís Laws and Promises will be null and void, as they have wasted them by ignoring the fact of a journey and remain satisfied where they are.
Warning :† While they continue to do this, they will not be in the position to do The Will of God, which is the Criteria to inherit Eternal Life.
Matthew 7: 21-23†††† 1 John 2: 24-25††† 1 Peter 1: 3-12
Warning :† If you are looking to Jesus as God and Father, we encourage you to repent and to confess this, and ask The Father to reveal His Truth to you.
John 16: 13-15†††† 1 Corinthians 8: 6†††† James 2: 19†††† John 17: 3
Warning : **† Isaiah prophetically warns those who would call Christ, Father, and therefore God and hang on to him as one would a Peg.† God says ĎHe will cut them downí.
THE MEANING OF LAW:
The Laws of God, are His unchangeable Word, and powers which display its essence.† His Laws with all knowledge, purpose and justice, are the measure of His Righteousness.† The Laws of God which were written are not Laws of bondage but of revelation of God and His love and power and Righteousness and Life.† They are always with The Promise of an abundant Life by God, which is Godís Law to those who trust in Him as God alone, and in His New Covenant Agreement.
Godís Laws and Promises of any prophetic nature which have been promised to Israel have flowed on to the Gentiles who would believe, in Godís offer of Salvation, through His Son.
Godís Son was promised to Israel, as was Godís Spirit promised to Israel and we are partakers of his work because God has said that His Son would be a Light to The Gentiles.
Exodus 20†††† Galatians 3: 22††† Galatians 3: 14††† John 3: 16††† Acts 11: 17-18††† Luke 2: 25-32††† Acts 22: 14-21††† Romans 15: 14-15
When speaking of any Laws it is a must to identify whose Law is being referred to.
E.g. The† Law is of Sin and Death† is where all mankind are born into its Realm.
The Patriarchs were under The Law of Sin and Death, which they opposed by walking in faith, blameless, in Godís sight.† Genesis 17: 1-2 was to be obeyed in order for Abraham to confirm his agreement with Godís Covenant of Circumcision, which was a shedding of blood in obedience to God.† God credited those who did so, with righteousness, and they were judged prior to their death, but Heaven remained closed.
Romans 7: 24-25†††† John 3: 13†††† Matthew 27: 51-53
Godís new Law and invitation of John 3: 16 wants to deal with The Law of Sin and Death, under which we are all born, into The Death Realm.† This Spiritual work is to be done in two steps which confirm the need and purpose of The Exits and Entrances.
* THE FIRST STEP.†† Hearts are sprinkled by the blood, to cleanse from a guilty conscience, as Jesus was The Guilt Offering.††† Isaiah 53: 10†††† 1 Peter 1: 2
* THE SECOND STEP.†† Having our bodies washed with Living Spirit Water, by Baptism with Holy Spirit.† We are sanctified by the Spirit of God.† Set apart.
Hebrews 10: 22††† Romans 8: 10-11††† John 3: 3-6††† 1 Corinthians 12: 13††† 1 Peter 1: 2††† 1 Corinthians 6: 11
Warning : **†† Abraham was Blessed because he obeyed God.† Any disobedience and God withholds Blessing.† Godís promises carry blessing for obedience and curses for disobedience.
Warning :† Because of all this work The exhortation is NOT TO deliberately and wilfully sin, with a warning of judgement, that is immediately repeated after these two steps in Hebrews.† It is afterwards that His healing can take place in the believer as we confess our sin and are cleansed from its defilements, and any damage that sin and death have done in and to us.† There is no further sacrifice for deliberate, wilful sin, but a cleansing because of the cross for those ĎIn Christí, for unintentional sin.† We are to confess our sin in order for it to be cleansed.
1 John 1: 7-10
THIS IS THE PURPOSE OF THE REPEATING OF THE NEW COVENANT AND
ITS PROMISE THAT SIN IS FORGIVEN AND FORGOTTEN BY GOD.
IN ORDER THAT WE WILL REMEMBER.
Warning :† To continue to wilfully sin is not to be submitting oneself to the power of God, The Fatherís Spirit.† Not to be an over-comer is to scream back at the Sacrificial Spirit of both The Father and The Son,† ďI donít want to do your will, I will do it My way.Ē
Why does a man continue to wilfully sin after all that God offers him?† Is it simply because the reality of the delight of sin is greater and a person finds it useful for his contentment rather than condemning it as useless, as Jesus did, in the light of the knowledge of what God can do to deliver him.
Romans 8: 1-17**†††† Matthew 7: 21-23†††† Romans 8: 3-4
IMPLICATIONS THAT REQUIRE A WARNING.
ANY MAN WHO WILFULLY SINS IS ACTING LIKE THE FIRST ADAM, EVEN THOUGH AT ONE TIME, WITH HIS MIND, HE HAD OBEYED GODíS PLAN OF REDEMPTION.
So great is this issue that if one continues in sin, they act out unbelief and come against God Himself and †The One whom God has ordained to be The Corner Stone of His Temple, seen as †The Stone of Offence, because he causes men, if they do not believe in him to be crushed.† †God His Father shall crush them, as those who with God and Christ in them deliberately and wilfully continue to sin.† It has required the work of the cup of death and its mechanics by the death of Godís Son to reinstate us into the relationship that Adam had with God and more.† This is why God says, ďIf you do what Adam did, expect Adamís resultsĒ. 1 Corinthians 15: 22
Jesus, condemned and detested unbelief.† Our Hope is to be in The Living God, who is The Saviour of all men, especially to those who believe.† 1 Timothy 4: 10.
Those ĎIn Christí who continue in deliberate sin, are not removed from the Spiritual Body.† Their Spiritual Gifts, generally will operate even though not in fellowship with God.† They will suffer judgement by Christ as to their sin and the use (if any) of their Spiritual Gift.
Here we see a double accountability.
However, God sees that men like this will continue on in their ways and it becomes impossible for these believers to repent, because of their deeds.† God has said that He will wait aside from them and wait for repentance, from them for their guilt, until they seek His Face in misery, earnestly seeking Him.† Spiritual prostitution without responsibility to The Power of God, given to those In Christ, is great sin.
It is The Law of The Heavens, that †those who deliberately sin after knowing full pardon of all sin and of that which is remembered no more, are called by Jesus in Matthew 13: 47-50, ĎBad Fishí, who will have their reward when Christ judges them, because they are ĎIn Christí.
Warning :† Woe, Woe, Woe to those who are bad fish In Christ, who are in The Present Kingdom of Heaven and those who do evil in Christís Kingdom.† The Fiery Furnace will be their Eternal Abode.
Mark 12: 9-10††† Matthew 21: 44††† 1 Peter 2: 7-8††† Matthew 25: 14-30††† Hebrews 6: 4-8††† Hosea 5: 4††† Hosea 5: 15††† Hosea 4: 6††† Matthew 13: 47-50††† Matthew 13: 37-42††† Hebrews 10: 39-41††† 2 Corinthians 5: 10††† 1 Thessalonians 4: 16††† NO† 2 Timothy 4: 8, for bad fish.
Warning :† It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of The Living God and His Son for judgement because of disobedience.
Hebrews 10: 29†††† Jude 1: 14-20†††† Hebrews 6: 4-8
THE JUDGEMENTS;† A CRY OF WARNING:
According to Jesus there are differing places that will become an Eternal Abode for those who, as believers, defy Godís Will, and whose names will be blotted out of The Book of Life.† Yes!
Christ will judge those In Christ.††† 1 Thessalonians 4: 16††† Matthew 13: 47-50†††
2 Corinthians 5: 10
God will judge those of The World.††† Revelation 20: 11-15
Christís angels will weed out those in Christís Kingdom.† Those who have done evil and cast them into The Fiery Furnace.† The others will be handed to God by Christ for God to judge them.† The best for them will be Outer Darkness, as they will be judged according to their works.†
Remember the warning to The Unbaptised with Holy Spirit.
There will be The Fiery Furnace, for those In Christ who do not do the will of God and for those in Christís Kingdom who do evil.† Outer Darkness will be for those who did not take the full work of Christ and God shall judge them for their works.† The Lake of Fire is Hell, which is reserved for those whose names have never been in The Book of Life.

IT IS ONLY IN RELATIONSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP WITH THE FATHER, THAT WE CAN DO HIS WILL, AS JESUS DID, AND HIS LAWS OF HEAVEN CAN BE WRITTEN AND EXPANDED IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS.
TO KNOW GOD.
We are to look to God The Father, as God alone.† We are to love Him with all of our heart, mind and soul, totally given over to God in all areas of our lives, which is how we Spiritually shed our blood and how we will know the renewal of our mind by seeing that Godís Will is so good, and doing it His way, as one knows it.
1 Corinthians 8:6††† John 17: 3††† James 2: 19††† Matthew 22: 37-40††† Romans 12: 1-2
We are to ask of Him all things, In order that He will lead us at all times.† We are to give all praise and thanks to The Father, while giving thanks to Jesus for his obedience to His Father.† By this we thank God for the power of the Name of Jesus, because it was his works with God, that brought us to The Father.† ††John 5: 17
The Father is to guide us, and teach us Truth.† As the Spirit of Truth He will lead us into all Truth, concerning Himself and His Son.† We will know the works of His Seven Spirits which He operates by His One Spirit.† His Spirit of Truth, Wisdom and Revelation, Holiness, Grace, Glory, life are known to us in all His Power by His Spirit because we know His Spirit of Adoption and we are Sons, by the work of His Spirit.
God, The Father, is to be our Healer, Deliverer, Provider, Protector and Director.† He would have us trust in Him alone in regard to these works, because these are His works alone, and not to call upon Him as Ďa last resortí.† It is trusting Him in these completely, that declares our faith, and gives praise to His Name.† Nothing is impossible with God, for all that is Ďgoodí for us.
We are to gain the knowledge of the absolute difference of what Life is to Death, Good from Evil, as we apply ourselves diligently to His teaching of Righteousness.
John 16: 23-28††† Ephesians 5: 20††† John 5: 17††† John 16: 13-15††† Revelation 1: 4† &† 4: 5††† Hebrews 5: 13-14†
His knowledge shall reveal new things which he expects to bring out to us, from His Store Houses.
Continual Revelation is the will of God in order that the depths and dimensions of His purposes are opened up to our understanding, which expands His Word and enlarges Himself and His Son to us, to understand what are their individual works.†
To believe that there is nothing more for us to know of God and Christ, is to stand in opposition to any new revelation which in His purpose and will is for those who are of His New Covenant.
Hosea 4: 6† My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.† Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you as My Priests, because you have ignored the Law of your God, I will also ignore your children.
The keeping of His Commandments, gives health to our bodies and bones by the free flowing of His Spirit in and through us and The Fruit of His Spirit is manifested in our personalities, by Godís Spirit making our mortal bodies alive.

Warning :† It is important to consider, that a Day called Sabbath is set aside by the Christian for their Spiritual as well as their Physical well being.† It was for Israel a sign to all those around them of their worship of The Living God.† So important was its observance, that those who failed to do so would be put to death.† What does this say to us of a command given to us by One who is The I Am?
What a mighty and powerful God is Our Father, who would have us to know Him in close Fellowship and to speak to Him naturally in Ďthe spiritual languageí of His Kingdom, because God gives His people The Laws of Heaven, which is His Domain, of which we are called to obey, because we spiritually live in them and to be the manifold wisdom of God to principalities and powers.
Isaiah 32: 12† The fruit of righteousness is Peace;† the effect of righteousness is quietness and confidence.
Warning :† †The neglect of speaking in tongues is very detrimental to the welfare of the believer and to the church, in regard to healing and deliverance and the gaining of knowledge concerning all circumstances in relation to Ministry and Service in Godís Will.
Our communication by The Spiritual Language of Tongues is by The Father and The Son in and through us, which is pure because it is Spirit of God and of Christ and is therefore Power.

GODíS LAW IS THAT:
OUR FELLOWSHIP IS TO BE WITH GOD OUR FATHER.† IT IS OUR LOVING OBLIGATION TO BE FAITHFUL TO HIS WILL AND PURPOSE.† SO THERE WILL BE NO ĎCORROSIONí OR ĎCALCIFICATIONí OF THE WORKS OF HIS SPIRIT IN US OR ILL EFFECTS UPON OUR BODIES.† THE WORK OF THE SPIRIT WILL REMAIN IN US TO BE SEEN BY THE SON WHEN HE JUDGES US.† JESUS WILL SEE THE TRANSFORMATION AND THE RESULT WILL TESTIFY AS TO WHETHER WE WILL INHERIT.† BECAUSE GOD IS FAITHFULL TO HIS PLAN THAT TO THOSE WHO SHED THEIR BLOOD HE IS JOYFULLY OBLIGATED TO GIVE US ETERNAL LIFE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD, BECAUSE WE DID HIS WILL.
1 John 1: 3††† 2 Corinthians 5:10††† Matthew 13: 47-50††† 2 Corinthians 3: 17-18††† 1 Corinthians 13: 12††† Ephesians 3: 12††† 1 John 2: 24-25††† Revelation Chaps 21 Ė 22††† Matthew 7: 21-23
Many are invited i.e. all may come to The Father through the work of Jesus Christ but few will be chosen.† This is speaking of the few who shall enter Eternal Life, because they did the Will of The Father, not disregarding His Covenant Promise and conditions which binds what His Will is; what The New Covenant Promise is.† They gave their lives to His Will as Jesus did : this is how they shed their blood.
THIS IS LOVE FOR GOD, TO OBEY HIS COMMANDS.† CONSIDER HIS WARNINGS.
HE WHOM THE LORD LOVES, HE CHASTENS.
PLEASE READ every verse of scripture very carefully because it is Godís Word.† Note the small words, the† Ďin, on, and, but, if, is, wasí† for they carry applications of Truth.
If you are unbaptised with Holy Spirit, you can ask Jesus yourself or go where others can pray for you, for Baptism with Holy Spirit.
Look into Godís Word and begin to discern what is Godís Work and what is Christís Work.
John 5: 17††† John 16: 13-15††† John 16: 23-28†††† Ephesians 1: 17
