    Brother Tim,

    I agree with Brother Adam who previously responded to your comments. Surely we most do more than just believe. Jesus states in scripture below: he will reward every man according to his work. This does take action on our part, as Jesus also states in scripture below, that he will come quickly and reward those who keep his commandments, and they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

    Revelation 22:12-14

    12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city

    So, if you believe what Jesus is stating here in the scripture: We must then keep his (God's) commandments and produce good work/good fruit!

    Jesus didn't die on the cross, so that all of us can keep sinning as much as we want - with no repercussions. There is no free ticket to heaven!

    God Bless

    Basic Distinctions between Prophecy and the Mystery (C.R. Stam) - continued:

    8) Prophecy mainly concerns nations as such ( Isaiah 2:4; Ezekiel 37:21-22)

    Rightly Divided ( 2 Timothy 2:15) From "Things That DIFFER!":

    8) The Mystery Concerns individuals ( Romans 10:12-13; 2 Corinthians 5:14-17)

    9) Prophecy concerns blessings, both material and spiritual, on earth ( Isaiah 2:3-4; Isaiah 11:1-9; etc.)

    RDf

    9) The Mystery Concerns "all spiritual blessings in The Heavenlies" ( Ephesians 1:3; Colossians 3:1-3)

    10) Prophecy concerns Christ's Coming to the earth ( Isaiah 59:20; Zechariah 14:4)

    RDf

    10) The Mystery Explains Christ's absence from the earth ( Ephesians 1:20-24; Colossians 3:1-3)

    11) In prophecy, salvation by Grace through faith alone is not contemplated ( Matthew 28:19-20; Matthew 23:1-3; Luke 7:29-30; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38; James 2:17)

    RDf

    11) Salvation "By GRACE Through faith" Alone lies at The Very Heart Of The Mystery! ( Romans 3:21-26; Romans 4:5; Ephesians 2:8-9)

    12) The proclamation of the prophetic program committed particularly to the twelve ( Matthew 10:5-7; Acts 1:6-8; Acts 3:19-26)

    RDf

    12) The proclamation of The Mystery program committed particularly to Paul ( Ephesians 3:1-3; Ephesians 3:8-9; Colossians 1:24-27)

    13) The prophetic program revealed through many of God's servants Luke 1:70; 2 Peter 1:21)

    RDf

    13) The Mystery revealed through one man: Paul! ( Galatians 1:1; Galatians 1:11-12; Galatians 2:2; Galatians 2:7; Galatians 2:9; Ephesians 3:2-3)

    14) Old Testament writers frequently did not understand the prophecies made through them ( Daniel 12:8-10; 1 Peter 1:10-12)

    RDf

    14) Paul Both understood And longed that others might understand The Mystery revealed through him ( Ephesians 1:15-23; Ephesians 3:14-21; Colossians 1:9-10; Colossians 2:1-3)

    Paul was called to minister to the Gentiles in Acts 9, but he didn't go to them right away. He preached that Jesus was Lord and Christ to the Jews. After he regained his sight, Acts 9:20 says, "And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God." Later in Galatians 1:15-18, Paul writes, "But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days." Got it?
  • IMKane - In Reply - 2 years ago
    It's Scripturally correct to say that there's only one gospel for this dispensation of grace. However, when Jesus walked the earth 2000 years ago, He was under the Law of Moses, and He preached and taught a kingdom gospel to the Jews, and so did His apostles. He did not teach the Samaritans or Gentiles, and neither did His apostles.

    Paul writes in Galatians 1:6-7, "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ."

    Later in Galatians 2:7-9, Paul adds, "But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter; (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:) And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision."

    Clearly there was one gospel for the circumcision and another for the uncircumcision. What happened in the Galatian church is the members had mixed the two gospels because Messianic Jews from the church at Jerusalem had taught them the kingdom gospel and insisted that be circumcised and obey the Law of Moses to be saved. It was agreed upon by those in authority, i.e., Peter, James, and John, that Paul was the apostle to the Gentiles, and that Peter was the apostle to the Jews.

    Scripture clearly teaches that there were two gospels. Scripture must be studied, not just read, and it must be rightly divided to understand the truth of God's written word. Paul says the Scripture is given for reproof and correction. What I find most troublesome these days is that far too many self-identified Christians refuse to accept correction once they have been corrected.

    The Word If you want to focus on what's specifically written to the Church of God That's Romans thru Thessalonians that is what was Given to the apostle Paul by revelation from Jesus Christ Galatians 1:11+12 But I certify you brethren that the gospel which was preached of me was not after man. verse 12 For I neither received it of man neither was I taught it but by revelation of Jesus Christ. But remember all scripture is profitable. In His Service
  • Dianne - In Reply on Matthew 1 - 2 years ago
    Crossroman I'll finish with this the epistle or letter was written to the Church of God to which Jesus Christ gave the revelation Galatians 1:11+12 or information at to what was given through whom and all other details From Romans through Thessalonians written to Church of God born again believers. What he's discussing is the battle that is constant between the natural man 5 senses and the spiritual man we got when we were born again. He was born again when he was given the revelation because revelation is information you cannot know by your five senses 1 Corinthians 2:10-14 if I've discussed this before i apologise, don't know if things get through sometimes forgive me.

  • GRACE_ambassador {ChrisE} - In Reply on Revelation 13 - 2 years ago
    Precious Cowboy, no need to be sorry, thanks for stating your view. According To The Scriptures, The Age Of God's GRACE Has NOT Ended yet, With God removing ALL of HIS "ambassadors" ( 2 Corinthians 5:20) To Heaven, BEFORE Declaring War/Judgment/Wrath on an UNbelieving world. The Body Of CHRIST has Already had almost 2000 years of tribulation, but will BE COMFORTED At The Great GRACE Departure To Glory ( 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18). Amen? HIS Gospel Of GRACE Will End so that the Everlasting gospel of the kingdom can be preached during the "Time Of Jacob's {ISRAEL's} TROUBLE":

    Which Gospel Makes Way For Which Gospel?

    In The Revelation Of The MYSTERY, Paul preached The Gospel of GRACE, Which Is:

    JESUS CHRIST, The SON Of God, Freely Gave HIS Life As A Sacrifice For our sins. HE Was Crucified, Buried, And Rose From the dead on the third day! ( 1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Paul wrote in ( Galatians 1:8) that if anyone, Including "AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, ... preach any Other gospel unto you than That Which we have preached unto you, let him Be ACCURSED!" Thus we know that this present predominantly Gentile church Must Be Removed {PRE-TOJT} to Allow the worldwide preaching of the gospel of the kingdom that Paul did Not preach to us...

    Rightly Divided ( 2 Timothy 2:15) From "Things That DIFFER!":

    ...Making Way For HIS [Everlasting] gospel of the kingdom!:

    JESUS Said in ( Matthew 24:14) "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." The gospel of the kingdom was "... Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!" ( Matthew 4:17).

    When The MYSTERY Ends, And, God Resumes HIS Prophetic Program, The Everlasting gospel of the kingdom Will be preached by 144,000 "sealed" Jews, TWO powerful witnesses, AND, by an angel ( Revelation 14:6)

    Conclusion: How can The Body Of CHRIST "enter Into JACOB's Trouble, with The Gospel Of GRACE," And, this angel NOT "be ACCURSED, preaching a DIFFERENT Gospel"? Amen?

    Brother Chris In regards to the beginning of the church of God in operation started day of Pentecost the full understanding of what was given was revealed to the apostle Paul by Jesus Christ in Galatians 1:11+12 thats who gave Paul the understanding of what was given on pentecost. In Ephesians 3:1-7 look at verse 9 which hath been hid in God, look at 1 Peter 1:10-12 the knowledge of The Church of God was Given to the Apostle Paul to teach, that' s my understanding when you search the church epistles. Input from anyone gladly welcome

    You need to read Revelation chapter 22; of the King James Bible.

    You are dangerously close to becoming a candidate for what's written in



    Revelation 20:12-13

    Revelation 22:18-20

    John 21:31

    Galatians 1:8-9

    2 Corinthians 11:13-15

    THE APOCRYPHA IS NOT PART OF THE CANONIZED BIBLE.

    Read Ezekiel chapter 2,

    Then Ezekiel 3:17-27

    These scriptures are a warning from God. Is this relevant in the year 2021. from someone who was pulled out of the snake pit of hell; so be wise and don't go near writings that aren't in the Bible.

    Astrology is not even a science. It's a religion. The only sign that Christians have, is the BLOOD OF JESUS. Same goes for Apocrypha.

    Please, please, may we all quit dabbling in and around the evil that inhabits these things...so as to give a comment on them.

    There are many more people WHO WANT TO HEAR THE TRUTH. They need to be saved. They've heard Jesus knocking on the door of their hearts. The Harvest is here, now.

    Even for us Christians, we need to read those Ezekiel verses. This is going to come up at the BEMA seat judgment of Christ. Rewards or no rewards. Everything we do has to pass through the fire.

    I have a question for us all. How do you think world governments are going to pay for all this destruction and disasters in the great nations of the world? Billions and Trillions of dollars?

    The one world system of money is advancing.

    * The white horse of the Apocalypse represents religious deception; money system

    * The red horse of the Apocalypse represents wars.

    * The black horse of the Apocalypse represents famines.

    * The pale horse of the Apocalypse represents pestilence (disease epidemics and pandemics) and Disasters and death.
  • WHAT OR WHO IS THE GOSPEL - 2 years ago
    1 Corinthians 9:18

    What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.

    1 Corinthians 9:14

    Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.

    1 Corinthians 9:16

    For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, WOE is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

    Galatians 1:11

    But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

    Galatians 1:7

    Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

    2 Corinthians 4:3

    But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

    Romans 1:1

    Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

    Comment by Mishael: Don't you yet see that THE GOSPEL is the person of Jesus Christ?

    He is the fulfillment of prophesies foretold by the prophets.

    The Gospel we carry to unsaved people are: Jesus's virgin birth, Jesus's Sinless Life on Earth, Jesus's Crucifixion, Jesus's Resurrection.

    If anyone thinks in their heart, that Jesus is a Religion, that people modified to fit their Religion__then you need to be born again as Jesus told Nicodemas. John 3.

    On the Mount of Transfiguration, when Peter saw Jesus in his glorified person, the first thing he wanted to do was construct 3 Churches. That's Flesh! Even God spoke from a cloud and told Peter to stop it and Listen To Jesus I would say that is how a lot of people get themselves into a Box. I suggest we slowly read that passage.

    The Gospel is meant to be CARRIED to the people. Did you know there is a demon that is named: Religious Spirit? Google that. What is its purpose?

    We make up religion to keep the Gospel in a box. "BEAUTIFUL are the feet of those that carry the Good News." This is where I say, pause and think on these things...and pray.
  • Jesse - In Reply - 2 years ago
    Lex,

    There is a lot to share from 1 Corinthians 15:2-8 so I had to break this section up.

    1 Corinthians 15:2-8 (Part 1)

    Verse 2: It says by which, or more literally, through which you are also being saved. Please notice that I put the word "being" in there because it is a passive continually abiding in a process of being saved. When a person is saved, that is not the finish line. It is the starting line. When you're saved, you're saved. So you've been saved in the past. You are being saved now in that your salvation is being worked out. And in the future, you will be saved!

    So it's a constant process of salvation. It doesn't mean that we're any less saved last month than we are today. It's just that salvation is a process that continues to work in us because first we are delivered. And that's what saved means. We are delivered from Satan. But then there's a restoration process where we are healed in the renewing of our minds.

    Paul says that we remain in this process. Once we are saved, we are always in the process of being saved. So in order for a person to not be saved, they just have to drop out as to say I no longer belong in the process. Well then, they never were to begin with because it is a continuous process. The characteristic of a person who is truly saved is the person to whom God ministers His word to them, and it is received in their spirit, and it remains there (MENO).

    Verse 3: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received. Galatians 1:12 tells us that Paul received his gospel from Jesus Christ. So he's telling them that he delivered to them the same gospel he received from Christ.

    There are 4 things in the content of the gospel message in the Greek text. First of all, how Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures ( Psalm 22, Isaiah 53).

    Part 2 to be continued:

    David

    A-MEN, to that! No where in the Word of God will we find this made up word rapture. This is what happens when people reads commentaries rather then the true Word of God. Galatians 1:6-10 ( I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

    Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

    But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.)

    Life was always a complicated drama of choices and compromises. KJV Bible is not a definitively clear cut manuscript, forcing us to decide matters for ourselves, always evolving. Jesus' immediate family tree is surprisingly dysfunctional to our standards: James.

    James (brother of Jesus) was Joseph's son by Joseph's first wife, not by Mary... Joseph became the father of James and his three brothers (Joses, Simeon, Judah) and two sisters (a Salome and a Mary or a Salome and an Anna) with James being the elder sibling.

    Dissenting opinion below, because there's always 2 sides to the story:

    Saint Jerome believed that the "brothers" of the Lord were Jesus' cousins, thus amplifying the doctrine of perpetual virginity. Jerome concluded that James "the brother of the Lord", ( Galatians 1:19) is therefore James, son of Alphaeus, one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, and the son of Mary Cleophas.[11]

    Jerome also concluded that James "the brother of the Lord" is the same as James the Less. To explain this, Jerome first tells that James the Less must be identified with James, the son of Alphaeus. Jerome concludes that James, the son of Alphaeus, James the Less, and James, brother of the Lord, are one and the same person.

    Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

    Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

    Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

    Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

    For as the Heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

    As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

    Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

    Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

    Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

    Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

    As I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for. An original 1611 KJV Bible or just a reprint. I'd say just type in "1611 KJV Bible" on google or maybe amazon and see what comes up. Check the details to see if it's what you are looking for.

    Hope that helps and you find your Holy Bible.

  • Richard in Christ - In Reply on Galatians 1 - 3 years ago
    Hello Esther,

    I looked into this a little for you. As I know it comes up in that some people don't believe you should cremate a dead body. As it seems some have stated it may keep that person from "being resurrected" in the end.

    So one verse came up where a body was burned before burial. 1 Samuel 31:11-13.

    As there is no direct Scripture against cremation. The people of Israel would normally buried their dead. As today the cost to bury a dead body is very high. Cremation is the most cost effective way to dispose of someones remains in my knowledge.

    In my knowledge it really doesn't matter what is done to the body after death. We are all dust and, our bodies, return to dust after our death. Job 34:14-15. As the saying "ashes to ashes, dust to dust". If any think it has anything to do that whoever was cremated won't be resurrected. I'd say "what about people who died in a fire, eaten by a shark, or mutilated in a terrible car accident, or something?" Hopefully they wouldn't think that has anything to do with God being able to resurrect them on the last day. As God can do anything.

    I hope my view helps you. If anyone else has any other view feel free to post.

    God Bless.

    Yes, it seems they did. The first time Paul went to Jerusalem was three years after his Conversion, Where He saw only Simon Peter and James the Lords brother and abode there fifteen days. Galatians 1:18-19.

    Then after another fourteen years he went up to Jerusalem again. Stating James, Cephas, and John were there. Galatians 2:9. Though it seems he probably saw all of them at that visit.

  • Carleton on Colossians 1:15 - 3 years ago
    There were Christian believers from times past that left this confession of faith in 1632.

    "We also believe and confess that before His ascension, He instituted His New Testament, and, since it was to be and remain an eternal Testament, that, He confirmed and sealed the same with His precious blood, and gave and left it to His disciples, yea, charged them so highly with it, that neither angel nor man may alter it, nor add to it, nor take away from it; and that He has caused the same, as containing the whole counsel and will of His heavenly Father, as necessary for salvation, to be proclaimed in His name by His beloved apostles, messengers, and ministers- whom He called, chose, and sent into all the world for that purpose- among all peoples, nations, and tongues, and repentance and remission of sins to be preached and testified of; and that he accordingly has therein declared all men without distinction, who through faith, as obedient children, heed, follow, and practice what the same contains, to be His children, and lawful heirs; this excluding no one from the precious inheritance of eternal salvation, except for the un-believing, and disobedient, the stiff-necked and obdurate, who despise it, and incur this through their own sins, thus making themselves unworthy of eternal life."

    Galatians 1:1

    "Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)"

    Jesus is not a man he is the Lord God.
  • Charles R Peek - In Reply on Romans 5 - 3 years ago
    Jesus taught Paul, Paul taught Peter.

    Galatians 1:11-12 "But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, (Peter nor any other Disciple taught the Gospel to Paul)but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." Jesus told Paul what to Preach to the Gentiles. On the other hand, Paul taught the Gospel which he preached to the Gentiles to the 12 Apostles, including Peter. Galatians 2:1-2 "Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also. 2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain." And it was at least 14 years after the resurrection. THERE YOU HAVE THE SCRIPTURE, NOT MY WORD BUT GOD'S WORD.
  • Richard in Christ - In Reply on Romans 5 - 3 years ago
    So, taking a little more time and looking into Acts 9:26-27 and Galatians 1:17-18 it does seem to be the same experience. It just got a little confusing as it goes directly from Paul preaching first in Damascus and getting let down in a basket by the disciples to save him, not saying he went to Arabia or three years passing, then saying he came to Jerusalem in the next verse in Acts 9:25-27.

    This does seem to be where he only saw Peter and James, only noted as apostles in Acts 9:27, as Barnabas took him to them. A little detail we don't get in Galatians.
