How To Read Your Bible Without Getting Confused - Paul Ellis by jiggaz(m): 11:12am On Aug 20, 2016
Have you ever been confused by a Bible teaching that seemed contrary to something else in the Bible? Have you ever read a scripture that seemed to contradict another scripture?

Paul said that the entire Bible is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Tim 3:16). But he also said that we need to “rightly divide the word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15). We divide the word whenever we emphasize one scripture over another. So how do we divide the word rightly?

In essence there are two questions we should ask when reading any scripture in the Bible: (i) What does this passage mean in light of the finished work of the cross? And (ii) who is the writer writing to or about?

The filter of the cross

To hear some people preach today you might conclude that the cross was of no significance. In truth, Jesus’ death on the cross is the single most important event in human history.

Before the cross the old law covenant reigned. But after the cross a new covenant based on grace made the old covenant obsolete (Heb 8:13). Under the old covenant you were blessed if you were good, but under the new covenant we are blessed because He is good. Consider these contrasts from scripture:

Before the cross we were blessed when we obeyed and cursed when we disobeyed (Deut 11:26-28). But after the cross we are blessed because we are forgiven (Rms 4:cool and we are redeemed from the curse of the law (Gal 3:13).

Before the cross we forgave in order to earn God’s forgiveness (Mt 6:14). But at the cross we were unconditionally forgiven and we now forgive because Christ has forgiven us (Eph 4:32; Col 3:13).

Before the cross loving your neighbor meant not coveting his wife or property (Deut 5:21). But after the cross we love and accept others because Christ loves and accepts us (1 Jn 4:19; Rms 15:7).

Before the cross God was distant and unapproachable (Ex 19:12). But because of the cross we have been brought near to God to receive mercy and find grace (Eph 2:13; Heb 4:16).

Before the cross God held us responsible for our sins and not even sacrifices could clear a guilty conscience (Lev 5:17; Heb 9:9). But because of the cross Jesus’ blood cleanses us from a guilty conscience (Heb 10:22) and He remembers our sins no more (Heb 8:12).

Before the cross God said “Thou shalt not” (Ex 20). But after the cross God says “I will” (Heb 8:8-12). Before the cross it’s “do, do, do”. After the cross it’s “done, done done”.

Before the cross righteousness was demanded of sinful man (Deut 6:25). But at the cross righteousness was freely given (Rms 5:17).

Before the cross Adam’s sin meant condemnation for all men (Rms 5:18). But there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Rms 8:1).

When we read the Bible we should ask, is this scripture describing the old law covenant which condemns sinners or the new grace covenant which makes sinners righteous? If you are a Christian, you need not fear the condemnation of the law. Instead, rejoice that you are the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Cor 5:21).

Consider the audience

When reading the Bible it’s also important to note who the words were written for, otherwise you might end up taking
someone else’s medicine . There are only two kinds of people – those who put their faith in Jesus and those who don’t. Consequently the Holy Spirit brings two different convictions (Jn 16:8-10):

(i) Jesus said the Holy Spirit would convict the world of guilt for the sin of unbelief (Jn 16:9). Many things in the New Testament are written for unbelievers. Paul, Peter, John, Jude and James all had things to say to those who did not see their need for a Savior (e.g., 1 Jn 1:5-10). The apostles also wrote to warn the church about sinners masquerading as prophets and preachers (e.g., 2 Pet 2). Strong words of judgment and condemnation given to sinners do not apply to those whom Christ has qualified.

(ii) Jesus also said the Holy Spirit would convict Christians of righteousness (Jn 16:10). We do not need to be reminded of our shortcomings, but we often need to be reminded of our right standing before God (2 Cor 5:21). Much of the New Testament was written to assure Christians that we belong to God and that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ (Rms 8:38-39). Not even our sin can separate us because God’s grace is greater than our sin (Rms 5:15).
When we fail the Holy Spirit does not condemn us – there is no condemnation to those in Christ. Rather He reminds us that we are righteous, that we are kept by Jesus (Ju 24), that we are the Father’s sons (Gal 4:6), and that our hope is firm and secure (Heb 6:19). When we make mistakes Jesus doesn’t condemn us, He defends us (1 Jn 2:1) and then He teaches us how to say no to ungodliness (Tit 2:12).

Rightly dividing the word means reading the Bible in the context of the finished work of the cross. It means we interpret scripture in light of what Jesus has done. The entire Bible reveals Jesus (Lk 24:27). Read the Bible to find Jesus.

‘‘Jesus did not die and rise from the dead to end one age and shadows and symbols only to begin another age of shadows and symbols’’ ANONYMOUS

Contrary to the popular notion, Christ did not come to teach us how to fulfill the law by grace or make it easier for us to keep; He came to 'full-fill' the law and put an end to it. We need to understand that the Law is not an end in itself but a means to an end which ends in Christ; for if it was an end in itself, there would have been no need for the incarnation of Christ.

The Old covenant and its system of operation: the law, the tabernacle, priesthood, sacrifice, offerings are all nothing but shadows pointing to the real image Christ, the true high priest and His eternally perfect sacrifice. What is a shadow? Shadow by definition means a shade cast by the interception of light or an image cast by an object which represents the form of that object, but not the very object itself. Therefore, when the real object, the very image is revealed, the shadow fades away and is no longer valid; it becomes obsolete!

When the Bible talks about the Law being a shadow, it defines it in the same light as ''a form of good things to come'' in that, under the law, sacrifice for sins was continually carried out by the high priest year in, year out. As a result those who were purged of their wrongs, still carried the consciousness of their sins and were never truly free.

‘‘The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins.’’ Hebrews 10:1-2

The coming of Christ in the flesh was to put an end to the Old covenant system of operation; to free us from the yoke of bondage, having offered up Himself as a sacrifice for sin via His death on the cross, His resurrection which instituted the New covenant, and the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70AD which brought about the culmination of the Old Covenant.
It is however sad that many believers are still having a form of romance with the Old......

Follow only teachings that is consistent with what Jesus and his Apostles taught. Jesus laid the foundation for the Church. The law of Moses is abolished and so, you can not build a doctrine based on the Law of Moses unless it agrees with what Jesus taught.

SHALOM!

jiggaz:
Have you ever been confused by a Bible teaching that seemed contrary to something else in the Bible? Have you ever read a scripture that seemed to contradict another scripture?

The Oyinbos adopted a strategy of DESTABILIZING THEIR VICTIMS, so that they had no usable FRAME-OF-REFERENCE to be able to determine what is TRUE and what is NOT.

. JOHN 8:30-32.

30. As he spake these words,
many believed on him.
31. Then said Jesus to those Jews
which believed on him,
"If ye continue in my Word,
then are ye my Disciples indeed;
32. "And ye shall know The Truth,
and The Truth shall make you free."


THE TRUTH CAN ONLY BE KNOWN THROUGH YAHSHUA.

If you assign THAT to be your STABLE DATUM, you cannot possibly be DECEIVED, nor ERR.

. SCIENTOLOGY AXIOMS 53-54, 58.

53. A Stable Datum is necessary
to the alignment of Data.
54. A Tolerance of Confusion
and an agreed-upon Stable Datum
on which to align the data in a Confusion
are at once necessary
for a sane reaction
on the Eight Dynamics.
This defines Sanity.

58. Intelligence and Judgement are measured
by the ability to evaluate Relative Importances.

COROLLARY: The Ability to evaluate Importances and Unimportances
is the Highest Faculty of Logic.

COROLLARY: IDENTIFICATION is a monotone assignment of Importance.

COROLLARY: IDENTIFICATION is the inability to evaluate
Differences in Time, Location, Form, Composition or Importance.


THEY ARE NEVER GOING TO TELL YOU THAT YAHSHUA IS THE STABLE DATUM OF THE BIBLE.

. JOHN 14:1-18.

"LET not your heart be troubled:
ye believe in God,
believe also in me.
2. "In my Father's House
are many Mansions:
if it were not so,
I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
3. "And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again,
and receive you unto myself;
that where I am,
there ye may be also.
4. "And whither I go ye know,
and The Way ye know."
5. Thomas saith unto him,
"Lord, we know not whither thou goest;
and how can we know The Way?"
6. Jesus saith unto him,
"I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life:
no man cometh unto The Father, but by me.
7. "If ye had known me,
ye should have Known my Father also:
and from henceforth ye Know Him,
and have seen Him."
8. Philip saith unto him,
"Lord, shew us the Father,
and it sufficeth us."
9. Jesus saith unto him,
"Have I been so long time with you,
and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?
He that hath seen me hath seen The Father;
and how sayest thou then,


'SHEW US THE FATHER?'

10. "Believest thou not
that I am in the Father,
and the Father in me?
The Words that I speak unto you
I speak not of myself:
but the Father that dwelleth in me,
he doeth The Works.
11. "Believe me
that I am in The Father,
and The Father in me:
or else believe me
for the very Works' sake.
12. "Verily, verily, I say unto you,


'HE THAT BELIEVETH ON ME,
THE WORKS THAT I DO
SHALL HE DO ALSO;'


and Greater (Works) than these shall he do;
because I go unto my Father.
13. "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my Name,
that will I do,
that The Father may be glorified in The Son.
14. "If ye shall ask any thing in my Name,
I will do it.
15. "If ye love me,
keep my Commandments.
16. "And I will pray The Father,
and He shall give you another Comforter,
that He may abide with you for ever;
17. "Even The Spirit of Truth;
whom the World cannot receive,
because It seeth him not,
neither knoweth Him:
but ye know him;
for He dwelleth with you,
and shall be in you.
18. "I will not leave you comfortless:
I will come to you."


YAHSHUA IS THE TRUTH- AND WE ARE COMMANDED TO LOVE HIM.

We are NOT Commanded to love MOSES.

We are NOT Commanded to love PETER.

We are not Commanded to love PAUL.

We ARE Commanded to love YAHSHUA.

Loving Yahshua ELIMINATES ALL CHANCE of CONFUSION.

Paul said that the entire Bible is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Tim 3:16). But he also said that we need to “rightly divide the word of truth” (2 Tim 2:15). We divide the word whenever we emphasize one scripture over another. So how do we divide the word rightly?

PAUL NEVER SAID THAT AT ALL.

. 2nd TIMOTHY 3:12-17.

12. Yea, and all that will
live godly in Christ Jesus
shall suffer persecution.
13. But evil men and seducers
shall wax worse and worse,
deceiving, and being deceived.
14. But continue thou in the things
which thou hast learned
and hast been assured of,
knowing of whom
thou hast learned them;
15S And that from a child
thou hast known the Holy Scriptures,
which are able to make thee
wise unto Salvation
through Faith which is
in Christ Jesus.
16. All Scripture is given
by Inspiration of God,
and is profitable for Doctrine,
for Reproof,
for Correction,
for Instruction in Righteousness:
17. That the Man of God
may be Perfect,
throughly furnished
unto all Good Works.


PAUL SAID THAT ALL SCRIPTURE WAS USEFUL FOR DOCTRINE, REPROOF, AND INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.

He did NOT say that "THE BIBLE" was useful for Doctrine, Reproof, and Instruction, or whatever...

PAUL could not endorse what he did not know.

"THE BIBLE" is not synonymous with "SCRIPTURE."

It is merely the 66 Books that THE OYINBO CHURCHES DECIDED were Scripture.

THE GOSPELS were not published until AFTER Paul was dead- and he would never have endorsed THEM- because they EXPOSED his LIES.

If that is the standard, then PAUL has DISQUALIFIED his writings from being "Scripture."

In essence there are two questions we should ask when reading any scripture in the Bible: (i) What does this passage mean in light of the finished work of the cross? And (ii) who is the writer writing to or about?

The Oyinbo Theologians invented the idea that YAHSHUA'S CRUCIFIXION changed something.

. MATTHEW 5:16-20.

16. “Let your light
so shine before men,
that they may see
your Good Works,
and glorify your Father
Which is in Heaven.
17. "Think not that I am come
to destroy The Law,
or The Prophets:
I am not come to destroy,
but to fulfil.
18. "For verily I say unto you,


'TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS,
ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE
SHALL IN NO WISE
PASS FROM THE LAW
TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.'


19. "Whosoever therefore
shall break one
of these least Commandments,
and shall teach men so,
he shall be called
The Least in The Kingdom of Heaven:
but whosoever shall do
and teach Them,
the same shall be called Great
in The Kingdom of Heaven.
20. "For I say unto you,


'THAT EXCEPT YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
SHALL EXCEED THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
OF THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES,
YE SHALL IN NO CASE ENTER INTO
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.' "


Yahshua's Crucifixion didn't change THE LAW nor THE PROPHETS.

. MATTHEW 24:14,35.

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."
35. "Heaven and Earth shall pass away,
but my Words shall not pass away."


NOR DID THE CRUCIFIXION CHANGE ANY PART OF YAHSHUA'S TEACHINGS OR COMMANDMENTS.

. MATTHEW 28:16-20.

16. Then the eleven Disciples
went away into Galilee,
into a mountain
where Jesus had appointed them.
17. And when they saw him,
they worshipped him:
but some doubted.
18. And Jesus came
and spake unto them,
saying,
"All Power is given unto me
in Heaven and in Earth.
19. "Go ye therefore,
and Teach all nations,
baptizing them
in The Name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost:
20. "Teaching them to observe
all things whatsoever
I have Commanded you:
and, lo,
I am with you alway,
even unto The End of The World." Amen.


ALL OF HIS TEACHINGS AND COMMANDMENTS ARE STILL IN FORCE.

The filter of the cross

To hear some people preach today you might conclude that the cross was of no significance. In truth, Jesus’ death on the cross is the single most important event in human history.

Before the cross the old law covenant reigned. But after the cross a new covenant based on grace made the old covenant obsolete (Heb 8:13). Under the old covenant you were blessed if you were good, but under the new covenant we are blessed because He is good. Consider these contrasts from scripture:

Before the cross we were blessed when we obeyed and cursed when we disobeyed (Deut 11:26-28). But after the cross we are blessed because we are forgiven (Rms 4:cool and we are redeemed from the curse of the law (Gal 3:13).

THIS IS A MADE-UP DOCTRINE OF MEN.

If we SIN we are still accursed.

If we KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, we are STILL BLESSED.

NOTHING can possibly CHANGE that.

All these people going around claiming to be BLESSED BECAUSE OF THEIR BELIEFS AND WORDS are eventually put to SHAME.

"POSITIVE THINKING" can only take you SO FAR- then your LACK OF FOUNDATION will catch up with you.

The most ICONIC example of this is BAPTIST EVANGELIST BILLY GRAHAM.

He boasted to the World about how BLESSED he was as a FOLLOWER OF PAUL- then he came down with the INCURABLE Parkinson's Disease.

The soft-hearted will like to feel sorry for this WICKED man- but the REALITY is that he had TAUGHT MILLIONS to ACCEPT SATAN'S ATTACK on their lives as THE WILL OF GOD, and THANK GOD for "GRACE TO BEAR" the ILLNESSES and POVERTY that was DESTROYING THEIR LIVES!

That they should FEEL PROUD that they were not like those PENTECOSTAL FULL-GOSPEL "FANATICS," who FOOLISHLY believed that IT WAS THE WILL OF GOD to HEAL EVERY CHRISTIAN!

Before the cross we forgave in order to earn God’s forgiveness (Mt 6:14). But at the cross we were unconditionally forgiven and we now forgive because Christ has forgiven us (Eph 4:32; Col 3:13).

He is LYING!

There is NO FORGIVENESS OF SINS for those who do not forgive others themselves.

. MATTHEW 18:15-35.

15. "Moreover if thy Brother shall trespass against thee,
go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone:
if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy Brother.
16. "But if he will not hear thee,
then take with thee one or two more,
that in the mouth of two or three witnesses
every word may be established.
17. "And if he shall neglect to hear them,
tell it unto the Church:
but if he neglect to hear the Church,
let him be unto thee
as an Heathen man and a publican.
18. "Verily I say unto you,


'WHATSOEVER YE SHALL BIND ON EARTH
SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN:
AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL LOOSE ON EARTH
SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.'


19. "Again I say unto you,

'THAT IF TWO OF YOU
SHALL AGREE ON EARTH
AS TOUCHING ANY THING
THAT THEY SHALL ASK,
IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM
OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.'


20. "For where two or three
are gathered together in my Name,
there am I in the midst of them."
21. Then came Peter to him, and said,
"Lord, how oft shall my Brother Sin
against me,
and I forgive him?
Till seven times?"
22. Jesus saith unto him,
"I say not unto thee,


'UNTIL SEVEN TIMES:'
BUT, 'UNTIL SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN.'


23. "Therefore is the Kingdom of Heaven likened
unto a certain king,
which would take account of his servants.
24. "And when he had begun to reckon,
one was brought unto him,
which owed him ten thousand talents.
25. "But forasmuch as he had not to pay,
his lord commanded him to be sold,
and his wife, and children,
and all that he had,
and payment to be made.
26. "The servant therefore fell down,
and worshipped him, saying,


'LORD, HAVE PATIENCE WITH ME,
AND I WILL PAY THEE ALL.'


27. "Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion,
and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28. "But the same servant went out,
and found one of his fellowservants,
which owed him an hundred pence:
and he laid hands on him,
and took him by the throat,
saying,


'PAY ME THAT THOU OWEST.'

29. "And his fellowservant fell down at his feet,
and besought him, saying,


'HAVE PATIENCE WITH ME,
AND I WILL PAY THEE ALL.'


30. "And he would not:
but went and cast him into prison,
till he should pay the debt.
31. "So when his fellowservants
saw what was done,
they were very sorry,
and came and told unto their lord
all that was done.
32. "Then his lord,
after that he had called him,
said unto him,


'O THOU WICKED SERVANT,
I FORGAVE THEE ALL THAT DEBT,
BECAUSE THOU DESIREDST ME:
33. 'SHOULDEST NOT THOU ALSO
HAVE HAD COMPASSION
ON THY FELLOWSERVANT,
EVEN AS I HAD PITY ON THEE?'


34. "And his lord was wroth,
and delivered him to the Tormentors,
till he should pay all that was due unto him."
35. "So likewise
shall my Heavenly Father
do also unto you,
if ye from your hearts
forgive not every one
his Brother their Trespasses."


THIS TEACHING IS VALID UNTIL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS AWAY- AND BEYOND THAT!

Crucifixion could not change that.

jiggaz:
Before the cross loving your neighbor meant not coveting his wife or property (Deut 5:21). But after the cross we love and accept others because Christ loves and accepts us (1 Jn 4:19; Rms 15:7).

This is another lie.

. MARK 7:14-23.

14. And when he had called
all the people unto him,
he said unto them,

"Hearken unto me every one of you,
and understand:
15. "There is nothing from without a man,
that entering into him can defile him:
but the things which come out of him,
those are they that defile the man.
16. "If any man have ears to hear,
let him hear."
17. And when he was
entered into the house
from the people,
his Disciples asked him
concerning the Parable.

18. And he saith unto them,

"Are ye so without understanding also?
Do ye not perceive,
that whatsoever thing
from without entereth into the man,
it cannot defile him;
19. "Because it entereth not into his heart,
but into the belly,
and goeth out into the draught,
purging all meats?"

20 And he said,

"That which cometh out of the man,
that defileth the man.
21. "For from within,
out of the heart of men,
proceed evil thoughts
adulteries, fornications, murders,
22. "Thefts, covetousness, wickedness,
deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye,
blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23. "All these evil things come from within,
and defile the man."


COVETOUSNESS AND ADULTERY ARE JUST AS EVIL AS THEY EVER WERE.

The Oyinbo False Christians deliberately confuse the Church and the World on what the New Testament means by "LOVE."

FORNICATION is NOT "love," according to the NEW TESTAMENT!


Before the cross God was distant and unapproachable (Ex 19:12). But because of the cross we have been brought near to God to receive mercy and find grace (Eph 2:13; Heb 4:16).

Their "NEARNESS TO GOD" is purely imaginary!

. LUKE 14:7-11.

7. And he put forth a Parable
to those which were bidden,
when he marked how
they chose out the Chief Rooms;
saying unto them.
8. "When thou art bidden
of any man to a wedding,
sit not down in The Highest Room;
lest a more honourable man than thou
be bidden of him;
9. "And he that bade thee and him
come and say to thee,


'GIVE THIS MAN PLACE;'

and thou begin with shame
to take The Lowest Room.
10. "But when thou art bidden,
go and sit down in The Lowest Room;
that when he that bade thee cometh,
he may say unto thee,


'FRIEND, GO UP HIGHER:'

then shalt thou have worship
in the presence of them
that sit at meat with thee.
11. "For whosoever exalteth himself
shall be abased;
and he that humbleth himself
shall be exalted."


Before the cross God held us responsible for our sins and not even sacrifices could clear a guilty conscience (Lev 5:17; Heb 9:9). But because of the cross Jesus’ blood cleanses us from a guilty conscience (Heb 10:22) and He remembers our sins no more (Heb 8:12).

Again, this is a shamelessly irresponsible exaggeration of The Gospel, given to people this Heretic and Liar knows nothing about.

. EXODUS 22:1-6.

"IF a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep,
and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore
five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
2. "If a thief be found breaking up,
and be smitten that he die,
there shall no blood be shed for him.
3. "If the sun be risen upon him,
there shall be blood shed for him;
for he should make full restitution;
if he have nothing,
then he shall be sold for his theft.
4. "If the theft be
certainly found in his hand alive,
whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep;
he shall restore double.
5. "If a man shall cause
a field or vineyard to be eaten,
and shall put in his beast,
and shall feed in another man's field;
of the best of his own field,
and of the best of his own vineyard,
shall he make Restitution.
6. "If fire break out, and catch in thorns,
so that the stacks of corn,
or the standing corn,
or the field, be consumed therewith;
he that kindled the fire
shall surely make Restitution."


IF OUR SINS DAMAGED SOMEONE, WE ARE OBLIGED TO MAKE IT RIGHT- OTHERWISE THERE IS NO "REPENTANCE."

. LUKE 19:1-9.

AND Jesus entered
and passed through Jericho.
2. And, behold,
there was a man named Zacchaeus,
which was the chief among the publicans,
and he was rich.
3. And he sought to see Jesus
who he was;
and could not for the press,
because he was little of stature.
4. And he ran before,
and climbed up into a sycomore tree
to see him:
for he was to pass that way.
5. And when Jesus came to the place,
he looked up,
and saw him, and said unto him,

"Zacchaeus, make haste,
and come down;
for to day I must abide
at thy house."

6. And he made haste,
and came down,
and received him joyfully.
7. And when they saw it,
they all murmured,
saying,

"That he was gone to be guest
with a man that is a Sinner."

8. And Zacchaeus stood,
and said unto the Lord:

"Behold, Lord,
the half of my goods
I give to the Poor;
and if I have taken any thing
from any man by false accusation,
I restore him fourfold."

9. And Jesus said unto him,

"This day is Salvation
come to this House,
forsomuch as he also
is a son of Abraham."


THIS IS WHAT IT TAKES TO BE SAVED!

This is THE FRUITS MEET FOR REPENTANCE John the Baptist was talking about.

jiggaz:
Before the cross God said “Thou shalt not” (Ex 20). But after the cross God says “I will” (Heb 8:8-12). Before the cross it’s “do, do, do”. After the cross it’s “done, done done”.

Meaningless Garbage and LYING.

What about the "THOU SHALT" Commandments?

Everything that was ever Commanded is STILL IN FORCE!

Before the cross righteousness was demanded of sinful man (Deut 6:25). But at the cross righteousness was freely given (Rms 5:17).

NO, IT IS NOT!

This "RIGHTEOUSNESS" is FULLY IMAGINARY.

Before the cross Adam’s sin meant condemnation for all men (Rms 5:18). But there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Rms 8:1).

We did not need a "PAUL" to tell us that.

Oyinbos like to LIE and misquote that verse.

. ROMANS 7:25-8:1.

25. I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
So then with the mind I myself serve The Law of God;
but with the flesh The Law of Sin.
THERE is therefore now
no Condemnation to them
which are in Christ Jesus,
who walk not after the flesh,
but after The Spirit.


PAUL AGAIN LIED, EXALTING HIMSELF INTO ATTRIBUTES HE DID NOT HAVE, IN ORDER TO LEAD US INTO EMULATING HIM.

He could not- by the words of his own admission- control his PHYSICAL BODY- because he did not OBEY The SIMPLE Commandments of Yahshua on that subject:

. MATTHEW 18:1-9.

AT the same time came the Disciples unto Jesus, saying,
"Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?"
2. And Jesus called a little child unto him,
and set him in the midst of them,
3. And said,
"Verily I say unto you,


'EXCEPT YE BE CONVERTED,
AND BECOME AS LITTLE CHILDREN,
YE SHALL NOT ENTER INTO
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.'


4. "Whosoever therefore shall
humble himself as this little child,
the same is greatest in The Kingdom of Heaven.
5. "And whoso shall receive
one such little child in my Name receiveth me.
6. "But whoso shall offend
one of these little ones
which believe in me,
it were better for him that a millstone
were hanged about his neck,
and that he were drowned in the Depth of the Sea.
7. "Woe unto the World because of offences!
for it must needs be that offences come;
but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
8. "Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee,
cut them off,
and cast them from thee:
it is better for thee
to enter into life halt or maimed,
rather than having
two hands or two feet
to be cast into Everlasting Fire.
9. "And if thine eye offend thee,
pluck it out, and cast it from thee:
it is better for thee
to enter into Life with one eye,
rather than having two eyes
to be cast into Hell Fire."


PAUL NEVER ENTERED BY THE DOOR, BUT CLIMBED UP SOME OTHER WAY.

He never HUMBLED HIMSELF to enter into The Kingdom of God, but claimed that YAHSHUA VIOLATED HIS OWN LAW for HIM, by manifesting to someone who HATED him, and NEVER believed in his Teachings.

Teachings such that, if any part of your body makes you SIN- CUT IT OFF!

The WILLINGNESS to do that increases your WILLPOWER to the point where you REGAIN CONTROL.

The simple solution to PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION is to REMOVE YOUR EYEBALLS.

A "SERIOUS" person, taking the KNIFE to pluck out their eyeball will REALIZE that their EYEBALLS are MORE IMPORTANT than PORNOGRAPHY- and SIMPLY WILL THEMSELVES not to VIEW it any more.

If you were to choose between CUTTING OFF YOUR TONGUE, and EATING UNCLEAN MEATS, wouldn't you rather GIVE UP UNCLEAN MEATS?

Where do you THINK your FLESH gets the POWER to COMMIT SINS?

PAUL LIES, and says that there is no such thing as UNCLEAN MEATS any more- AND he says that THE FLESH CANNOT be CONTROLLED.

How much MORE intelligence do you NEED, to see that THE TWO are CONNECTED?

Paul tells you that the Problem is INSOLUBLE- but NOT that HE IS THE ONE who TOOK AWAY the SOLUTIONS!

OF COURSE, if someone were "IN CHRIST JESUS," they would NOT sustain CONDEMNATION- but HOW DO YOU DEFINE who is "IN CHRIST JESUS?

You will notice that the Oyinbo does not TELL us what that means, because he wants us to DECEIVE OURSELVES- by ASSUMING that we KNOW what that means!

. 1st JOHN 2:3-6.

3. And hereby we do know
that we know him,


"IF WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS."

4. He that saith,

"I KNOW HIM,"

and keepeth not his Commandments,
is a liar,
and The Truth is not in him.
5. But whoso keepeth his Word,
in him verily is The Love of God perfected:
hereby know we that we are in him.
6. He that saith he abideth in him
ought himself also so to walk,
even as he walked.


ONLY THOSE WHO KEEP YAHSHUA'S COMMANDMENTS ARE "IN" HIM.

. JOHN 15:1-8.

"I AM The True Vine,
and my Father is the Husbandman.
2. "Every branch in me
that beareth not fruit
He taketh away:
and every branch that beareth fruit,
He purgeth it,
that it may bring forth more fruit.
3. "Now ye are clean through the Word
which I have spoken unto you.
4. "Abide in me,
and I in you.


'AS THE BRANCH CANNOT
BEAR FRUIT OF ITSELF,
EXCEPT IT ABIDE IN THE VINE;
NO MORE CAN YE,
EXCEPT YE ABIDE IN ME.'


5. "I am The Vine,
ye are the Branches:


'HE THAT ABIDETH IN ME,
AND I IN HIM,
THE SAME BRINGETH FORTH
MUCH FRUIT:'


for without me ye can do nothing.
6. "If a man abide not in me,
he is cast forth as a branch,
and is withered;
and men gather them,
and cast them into The Fire,
and they are burned.
7. "If ye abide in me,
and my Words abide in you,
ye shall ask what ye will,
and it shall be done unto you.
8. "Herein is my Father glorified,


'THAT YE BEAR MUCH FRUIT;'

so shall ye be my Disciples."

When we read the Bible we should ask, is this scripture describing the old law covenant which condemns sinners or the new grace covenant which makes sinners righteous? If you are a Christian, you need not fear the condemnation of the law. Instead, rejoice that you are the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Cor 5:21).

YAHSHUA CONDEMNED SINNERS.

Nothing changed.

Neither did he EVER mention any such thing as "GRACE;" it is ALL PAUL'S INVENTION.

. MATTHEW 12:41-45.

41. "The men of Nineveh shall rise
in Judgment with this Generation,
and shall Condemn it:
because they Repented
at the Preaching of Jonas;
and, behold,
a Greater than Jonas is here.
42. "The queen of the South shall rise up
in The Judgment with this Generation,
and shall Condemn it:
for she came from
the uttermost parts of the Earth
to hear the Wisdom of Solomon;
and, behold,
a Greater than Solomon is here.
43. "When the unclean spirit
is gone out of a man,
he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest,
and findeth none.
44. "Then he saith,


'I WILL RETURN INTO MY HOUSE
FROM WHENCE I CAME OUT;'


and when he is come,
he findeth it empty,
swept, and garnished.
45. "Then goeth he,
and taketh with himself
seven other spirits
more Wicked than himself,
and they enter in and dwell there:
and the last state of that man
is worse than the first.
Even so shall it be also
unto this Wicked Generation."


. JOHN 3:14-21.

14. "And as Moses lifted up
the serpent in the wilderness,
even so must The Son of Man be lifted up:
15. "That whosoever believeth in him
should not Perish,
but have Eternal Life.
16. "For God so loved the World,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not Perish,
but have Everlasting Life.
17. "For God sent not His Son into the World
to condemn the World;
but that the World
through him might be Saved.
18. "He that believeth on him
is not Condemned:
but he that believeth not
is Condemned already,
because he hath not believed
in the Name of The Only Begotten Son of God.
19. "And this is The Condemnation,


'THAT LIGHT IS COME
INTO THE WORLD,
AND MEN LOVED DARKNESS
RATHER THAN LIGHT,
BECAUSE THEIR DEEDS
WERE EVIL.'


20. "For every one that doeth Evil
hateth the Light,
neither cometh to The Light,
lest his deeds should be reproved.
21. "But he that doeth Truth
cometh to The Light,
that his deeds may be made manifest,
that they are wrought in God."


Consider the audience

When reading the Bible it’s also important to note who the words were written for, otherwise you might end up taking
someone else’s medicine . There are only two kinds of people – those who put their faith in Jesus and those who don’t. Consequently the Holy Spirit brings two different convictions (Jn 16:8-10):

WHAT IS WRONG IS WRONG: IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO THE WORD OF GOD IS DELIVERED TO.

(i) Jesus said the Holy Spirit would convict the world of guilt for the sin of unbelief (Jn 16:9). Many things in the New Testament are written for unbelievers. Paul, Peter, John, Jude and James all had things to say to those who did not see their need for a Savior (e.g., 1 Jn 1:5-10). The apostles also wrote to warn the church about sinners masquerading as prophets and preachers (e.g., 2 Pet 2). Strong words of judgment and condemnation given to sinners do not apply to those whom Christ has qualified.

This contradicts his "AUTOMATIC FORGIVENESS FOR SINNERS" and "NO CONDEMNATION FOR SINNERS" Theories.

We are supposed to have such shallow Attention-Spans, that we are supposed to have FORGOTTEN that he SAID that, and is now preaching OPPOSITE from what he said THEN.

When we read the Bible we should ask, is this scripture describing the old law covenant which condemns sinners or the new grace covenant which makes sinners righteous? If you are a Christian, you need not fear the condemnation of the law. Instead, rejoice that you are the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Cor 5:21).

Trying to proceess these LIES as TRUTH, you become CONFUSED- but are expected to ASSUME that it is YOUR OWN FAULT, because you are NOT AS "ANOINTED" or INTELLIGENT as the "MAN OF GOD."

So that you GIVE UP the attempt to UNDERSTAND The Bible yourself, and ALLOW HIM and his ILK to do your THINKING for you!

(ii) Jesus also said the Holy Spirit would convict Christians of righteousness (Jn 16:10). We do not need to be reminded of our shortcomings, but we often need to be reminded of our right standing before God (2 Cor 5:21). Much of the New Testament was written to assure Christians that we belong to God and that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ (Rms 8:38-39). Not even our sin can separate us because God’s grace is greater than our sin (Rms 5:15).

Trying to process LIES as TRUTH leads to CONFUSION.

. JOHN 16:12-15.

7. "Nevertheless I tell you The Truth;
'It is expedient for you that I go away:
for if I go not away,
The Comforter will not come unto you;'
but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.
8. "And when He is come,
He will reprove the World of Sin,
and of Righteousness, and of Judgment:
9. "Of Sin,
because they believe not on me;
10. "Of Righteousness,
because I go to my Father,
and ye see me no more;
11. "Of Judgment,
because the Prince of this World is Judged.
12. "I have yet many things to say unto you,
but ye cannot bear them now.
13. "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come,
He will guide you into all Truth:
for He shall not speak of Himself;
but whatsoever He shall hear,
that shall He speak:
and He will shew you things to come.
14. "He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine,
and shall shew It unto you.
15. "All things that
The Father hath are mine:
therefore said I,


'THAT HE SHALL TAKE OF MINE,
AND SHALL SHEW IT UNTO YOU.' "


YAHSHUA DID NOT SAY THAT THE HOLY GHOST WOULD "CONVICT" THE WORLD: HE SAID THAT HE WOULD "REPROVE" THE WORLD.

He did not say that He would REPROVE nor CONVICT Christians, but rather THE WORLD.

So you see how the author STRAIGHT AND UP LIED TO US!

When we fail the Holy Spirit does not condemn us – there is no condemnation to those in Christ. Rather He reminds us that we are righteous, that we are kept by Jesus (Ju 24), that we are the Father’s sons (Gal 4:6), and that our hope is firm and secure (Heb 6:19). When we make mistakes Jesus doesn’t condemn us, He defends us (1 Jn 2:1) and then He teaches us how to say no to ungodliness (Tit 2:12).

How is this not BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST- claiming that He has functions He does not have?

Rightly dividing the word means reading the Bible in the context of the finished work of the cross. It means we interpret scripture in light of what Jesus has done. The entire Bible reveals Jesus (Lk 24:27). Read the Bible to find Jesus.

https://escapetoreality.org/2010/03/10/rightly-dividing-the-word-how-to-read-your-bible-without-getting-confused/

So what we have here is a big steaming bucket of DECEIVE-YOURSELF-IMAGINARY-SALVATION!

oaroloye:
SHALOM!



The Oyinbos adopted a strategy of DESTABILIZING THEIR VICTIMS, so that they had no usable FRAME-OF-REFERENCE to be able to determine what is TRUE and what is NOT.

. JOHN 8:30-32.

30. As he spake these words,
many believed on him.
31. Then said Jesus to those Jews
which believed on him,
"If ye continue in my Word,
then are ye my Disciples indeed;
32. "And ye shall know The Truth,
and The Truth shall make you free."


THE TRUTH CAN ONLY BE KNOWN THROUGH YAHSHUA.

If you assign THAT to be your STABLE DATUM, you cannot possibly be DECEIVED, nor ERR.

. SCIENTOLOGY AXIOMS 53-54, 58.

53. A Stable Datum is necessary
to the alignment of Data.
54. A Tolerance of Confusion
and an agreed-upon Stable Datum
on which to align the data in a Confusion
are at once necessary
for a sane reaction
on the Eight Dynamics.
This defines Sanity.

58. Intelligence and Judgement are measured
by the ability to evaluate Relative Importances.

COROLLARY: The Ability to evaluate Importances and Unimportances
is the Highest Faculty of Logic.

COROLLARY: IDENTIFICATION is a monotone assignment of Importance.

COROLLARY: IDENTIFICATION is the inability to evaluate
Differences in Time, Location, Form, Composition or Importance.


THEY ARE NEVER GOING TO TELL YOU THAT YAHSHUA IS THE STABLE DATUM OF THE BIBLE.

. JOHN 14:1-18.

"LET not your heart be troubled:
ye believe in God,
believe also in me.
2. "In my Father's House
are many Mansions:
if it were not so,
I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
3. "And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again,
and receive you unto myself;
that where I am,
there ye may be also.
4. "And whither I go ye know,
and The Way ye know."
5. Thomas saith unto him,
"Lord, we know not whither thou goest;
and how can we know The Way?"
6. Jesus saith unto him,
"I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life:
no man cometh unto The Father, but by me.
7. "If ye had known me,
ye should have Known my Father also:
and from henceforth ye Know Him,
and have seen Him."
8. Philip saith unto him,
"Lord, shew us the Father,
and it sufficeth us."
9. Jesus saith unto him,
"Have I been so long time with you,
and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?
He that hath seen me hath seen The Father;
and how sayest thou then,


'SHEW US THE FATHER?'

10. "Believest thou not
that I am in the Father,
and the Father in me?
The Words that I speak unto you
I speak not of myself:
but the Father that dwelleth in me,
he doeth The Works.
11. "Believe me
that I am in The Father,
and The Father in me:
or else believe me
for the very Works' sake.
12. "Verily, verily, I say unto you,


'HE THAT BELIEVETH ON ME,
THE WORKS THAT I DO
SHALL HE DO ALSO;'


and Greater (Works) than these shall he do;
because I go unto my Father.
13. "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my Name,
that will I do,
that The Father may be glorified in The Son.
14. "If ye shall ask any thing in my Name,
I will do it.
15. "If ye love me,
keep my Commandments.
16. "And I will pray The Father,
and He shall give you another Comforter,
that He may abide with you for ever;
17. "Even The Spirit of Truth;
whom the World cannot receive,
because It seeth him not,
neither knoweth Him:
but ye know him;
for He dwelleth with you,
and shall be in you.
18. "I will not leave you comfortless:
I will come to you."


YAHSHUA IS THE TRUTH- AND WE ARE COMMANDED TO LOVE HIM.

We are NOT Commanded to love MOSES.

We are NOT Commanded to love PETER.

We are not Commanded to love PAUL.

We ARE Commanded to love YAHSHUA.

Loving Yahshua ELIMINATES ALL CHANCE of CONFUSION.



PAUL NEVER SAID THAT AT ALL.

. 2nd TIMOTHY 3:12-17.

12. Yea, and all that will
live godly in Christ Jesus
shall suffer persecution.
13. But evil men and seducers
shall wax worse and worse,
deceiving, and being deceived.
14. But continue thou in the things
which thou hast learned
and hast been assured of,
knowing of whom
thou hast learned them;
15S And that from a child
thou hast known the Holy Scriptures,
which are able to make thee
wise unto Salvation
through Faith which is
in Christ Jesus.
16. All Scripture is given
by Inspiration of God,
and is profitable for Doctrine,
for Reproof,
for Correction,
for Instruction in Righteousness:
17. That the Man of God
may be Perfect,
throughly furnished
unto all Good Works.


PAUL SAID THAT ALL SCRIPTURE WAS USEFUL FOR DOCTRINE, REPROOF, AND INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.

He did NOT say that "THE BIBLE" was useful for Doctrine, Reproof, and Instruction, or whatever...

PAUL could not endorse what he did not know.

"THE BIBLE" is not synonymous with "SCRIPTURE."

It is merely the 66 Books that THE OYINBO CHURCHES DECIDED were Scripture.

THE GOSPELS were not published until AFTER Paul was dead- and he would never have endorsed THEM- because they EXPOSED his LIES.

If that is the standard, then PAUL has DISQUALIFIED his writings from being "Scripture."



The Oyinbo Theologians invented the idea that YAHSHUA'S CRUCIFIXION changed something.

. MATTHEW 5:16-20.

16. “Let your light
so shine before men,
that they may see
your Good Works,
and glorify your Father
Which is in Heaven.
17. "Think not that I am come
to destroy The Law,
or The Prophets:
I am not come to destroy,
but to fulfil.
18. "For verily I say unto you,


'TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS,
ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE
SHALL IN NO WISE
PASS FROM THE LAW
TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.'


19. "Whosoever therefore
shall break one
of these least Commandments,
and shall teach men so,
he shall be called
The Least in The Kingdom of Heaven:
but whosoever shall do
and teach Them,
the same shall be called Great
in The Kingdom of Heaven.
20. "For I say unto you,


'THAT EXCEPT YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
SHALL EXCEED THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
OF THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES,
YE SHALL IN NO CASE ENTER INTO
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.' "


Yahshua's Crucifixion didn't change THE LAW nor THE PROPHETS.

. MATTHEW 24:14,35.

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."
35. "Heaven and Earth shall pass away,
but my Words shall not pass away."


NOR DID THE CRUCIFIXION CHANGE ANY PART OF YAHSHUA'S TEACHINGS OR COMMANDMENTS.

. MATTHEW 28:16-20.

16. Then the eleven Disciples
went away into Galilee,
into a mountain
where Jesus had appointed them.
17. And when they saw him,
they worshipped him:
but some doubted.
18. And Jesus came
and spake unto them,
saying,
"All Power is given unto me
in Heaven and in Earth.
19. "Go ye therefore,
and Teach all nations,
baptizing them
in The Name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost:
20. "Teaching them to observe
all things whatsoever
I have Commanded you:
and, lo,
I am with you alway,
even unto The End of The World." Amen.


ALL OF HIS TEACHINGS AND COMMANDMENTS ARE STILL IN FORCE.


THIS IS A MADE-UP DOCTRINE OF MEN.

If we SIN we are still accursed.

If we KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, we are STILL BLESSED.

NOTHING can possibly CHANGE that.

All these people going around claiming to be BLESSED BECAUSE OF THEIR BELIEFS AND WORDS are eventually put to SHAME.

"POSITIVE THINKING" can only take you SO FAR- then your LACK OF FOUNDATION will catch up with you.

The most ICONIC example of this is BAPTIST EVANGELIST BILLY GRAHAM.

He boasted to the World about how BLESSED he was as a FOLLOWER OF PAUL- then he came down with the INCURABLE Parkinson's Disease.

The soft-hearted will like to feel sorry for this WICKED man- but the REALITY is that he had TAUGHT MILLIONS to ACCEPT SATAN'S ATTACK on their lives as THE WILL OF GOD, and THANK GOD for "GRACE TO BEAR" the ILLNESSES and POVERTY that was DESTROYING THEIR LIVES!

That they should FEEL PROUD that they were not like those PENTECOSTAL FULL-GOSPEL "FANATICS," who FOOLISHLY believed that IT WAS THE WILL OF GOD to HEAL EVERY CHRISTIAN!



He is LYING!

There is NO FORGIVENESS OF SINS for those who do not forgive others themselves.

. MATTHEW 18:15-35.

15. "Moreover if thy Brother shall trespass against thee,
go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone:
if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy Brother.
16. "But if he will not hear thee,
then take with thee one or two more,
that in the mouth of two or three witnesses
every word may be established.
17. "And if he shall neglect to hear them,
tell it unto the Church:
but if he neglect to hear the Church,
let him be unto thee
as an Heathen man and a publican.
18. "Verily I say unto you,


'WHATSOEVER YE SHALL BIND ON EARTH
SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN:
AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL LOOSE ON EARTH
SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.'


19. "Again I say unto you,

'THAT IF TWO OF YOU
SHALL AGREE ON EARTH
AS TOUCHING ANY THING
THAT THEY SHALL ASK,
IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM
OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.'


20. "For where two or three
are gathered together in my Name,
there am I in the midst of them."
21. Then came Peter to him, and said,
"Lord, how oft shall my Brother Sin
against me,
and I forgive him?
Till seven times?"
22. Jesus saith unto him,
"I say not unto thee,


'UNTIL SEVEN TIMES:'
BUT, 'UNTIL SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN.'


23. "Therefore is the Kingdom of Heaven likened
unto a certain king,
which would take account of his servants.
24. "And when he had begun to reckon,
one was brought unto him,
which owed him ten thousand talents.
25. "But forasmuch as he had not to pay,
his lord commanded him to be sold,
and his wife, and children,
and all that he had,
and payment to be made.
26. "The servant therefore fell down,
and worshipped him, saying,


'LORD, HAVE PATIENCE WITH ME,
AND I WILL PAY THEE ALL.'


27. "Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion,
and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28. "But the same servant went out,
and found one of his fellowservants,
which owed him an hundred pence:
and he laid hands on him,
and took him by the throat,
saying,


'PAY ME THAT THOU OWEST.'

29. "And his fellowservant fell down at his feet,
and besought him, saying,


'HAVE PATIENCE WITH ME,
AND I WILL PAY THEE ALL.'


30. "And he would not:
but went and cast him into prison,
till he should pay the debt.
31. "So when his fellowservants
saw what was done,
they were very sorry,
and came and told unto their lord
all that was done.
32. "Then his lord,
after that he had called him,
said unto him,


'O THOU WICKED SERVANT,
I FORGAVE THEE ALL THAT DEBT,
BECAUSE THOU DESIREDST ME:
33. 'SHOULDEST NOT THOU ALSO
HAVE HAD COMPASSION
ON THY FELLOWSERVANT,
EVEN AS I HAD PITY ON THEE?'


34. "And his lord was wroth,
and delivered him to the Tormentors,
till he should pay all that was due unto him."
35. "So likewise
shall my Heavenly Father
do also unto you,
if ye from your hearts
forgive not every one
his Brother their Trespasses."


THIS TEACHING IS VALID UNTIL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS AWAY- AND BEYOND THAT!

Crucifixion could not change that.
Plz stop commenting on my threads. You don't make sense and you always write long epistles that is not understandable... I don't read your epistles cos its too long and doesn't make sense.....

SHALOM!



The Oyinbos adopted a strategy of DESTABILIZING THEIR VICTIMS, so that they had no usable FRAME-OF-REFERENCE to be able to determine what is TRUE and what is NOT.

. JOHN 8:30-32.

30. As he spake these words,
many believed on him.
31. Then said Jesus to those Jews
which believed on him,
"If ye continue in my Word,
then are ye my Disciples indeed;
32. "And ye shall know The Truth,
and The Truth shall make you free."


THE TRUTH CAN ONLY BE KNOWN THROUGH YAHSHUA.

If you assign THAT to be your STABLE DATUM, you cannot possibly be DECEIVED, nor ERR.

. SCIENTOLOGY AXIOMS 53-54, 58.

53. A Stable Datum is necessary
to the alignment of Data.
54. A Tolerance of Confusion
and an agreed-upon Stable Datum
on which to align the data in a Confusion
are at once necessary
for a sane reaction
on the Eight Dynamics.
This defines Sanity.

58. Intelligence and Judgement are measured
by the ability to evaluate Relative Importances.

COROLLARY: The Ability to evaluate Importances and Unimportances
is the Highest Faculty of Logic.

COROLLARY: IDENTIFICATION is a monotone assignment of Importance.

COROLLARY: IDENTIFICATION is the inability to evaluate
Differences in Time, Location, Form, Composition or Importance.


THEY ARE NEVER GOING TO TELL YOU THAT YAHSHUA IS THE STABLE DATUM OF THE BIBLE.

. JOHN 14:1-18.

"LET not your heart be troubled:
ye believe in God,
believe also in me.
2. "In my Father's House
are many Mansions:
if it were not so,
I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
3. "And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again,
and receive you unto myself;
that where I am,
there ye may be also.
4. "And whither I go ye know,
and The Way ye know."
5. Thomas saith unto him,
"Lord, we know not whither thou goest;
and how can we know The Way?"
6. Jesus saith unto him,
"I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life:
no man cometh unto The Father, but by me.
7. "If ye had known me,
ye should have Known my Father also:
and from henceforth ye Know Him,
and have seen Him."
8. Philip saith unto him,
"Lord, shew us the Father,
and it sufficeth us."
9. Jesus saith unto him,
"Have I been so long time with you,
and yet hast thou not known me, Philip?
He that hath seen me hath seen The Father;
and how sayest thou then,


'SHEW US THE FATHER?'

10. "Believest thou not
that I am in the Father,
and the Father in me?
The Words that I speak unto you
I speak not of myself:
but the Father that dwelleth in me,
he doeth The Works.
11. "Believe me
that I am in The Father,
and The Father in me:
or else believe me
for the very Works' sake.
12. "Verily, verily, I say unto you,


'HE THAT BELIEVETH ON ME,
THE WORKS THAT I DO
SHALL HE DO ALSO;'


and Greater (Works) than these shall he do;
because I go unto my Father.
13. "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my Name,
that will I do,
that The Father may be glorified in The Son.
14. "If ye shall ask any thing in my Name,
I will do it.
15. "If ye love me,
keep my Commandments.
16. "And I will pray The Father,
and He shall give you another Comforter,
that He may abide with you for ever;
17. "Even The Spirit of Truth;
whom the World cannot receive,
because It seeth him not,
neither knoweth Him:
but ye know him;
for He dwelleth with you,
and shall be in you.
18. "I will not leave you comfortless:
I will come to you."


YAHSHUA IS THE TRUTH- AND WE ARE COMMANDED TO LOVE HIM.

We are NOT Commanded to love MOSES.

We are NOT Commanded to love PETER.

We are not Commanded to love PAUL.

We ARE Commanded to love YAHSHUA.

Loving Yahshua ELIMINATES ALL CHANCE of CONFUSION.



PAUL NEVER SAID THAT AT ALL.

. 2nd TIMOTHY 3:12-17.

12. Yea, and all that will
live godly in Christ Jesus
shall suffer persecution.
13. But evil men and seducers
shall wax worse and worse,
deceiving, and being deceived.
14. But continue thou in the things
which thou hast learned
and hast been assured of,
knowing of whom
thou hast learned them;
15S And that from a child
thou hast known the Holy Scriptures,
which are able to make thee
wise unto Salvation
through Faith which is
in Christ Jesus.
16. All Scripture is given
by Inspiration of God,
and is profitable for Doctrine,
for Reproof,
for Correction,
for Instruction in Righteousness:
17. That the Man of God
may be Perfect,
throughly furnished
unto all Good Works.


PAUL SAID THAT ALL SCRIPTURE WAS USEFUL FOR DOCTRINE, REPROOF, AND INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS.

He did NOT say that "THE BIBLE" was useful for Doctrine, Reproof, and Instruction, or whatever...

PAUL could not endorse what he did not know.

"THE BIBLE" is not synonymous with "SCRIPTURE."

It is merely the 66 Books that THE OYINBO CHURCHES DECIDED were Scripture.

THE GOSPELS were not published until AFTER Paul was dead- and he would never have endorsed THEM- because they EXPOSED his LIES.

If that is the standard, then PAUL has DISQUALIFIED his writings from being "Scripture."



The Oyinbo Theologians invented the idea that YAHSHUA'S CRUCIFIXION changed something.

. MATTHEW 5:16-20.

16. “Let your light
so shine before men,
that they may see
your Good Works,
and glorify your Father
Which is in Heaven.
17. "Think not that I am come
to destroy The Law,
or The Prophets:
I am not come to destroy,
but to fulfil.
18. "For verily I say unto you,


'TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS,
ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE
SHALL IN NO WISE
PASS FROM THE LAW
TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.'


19. "Whosoever therefore
shall break one
of these least Commandments,
and shall teach men so,
he shall be called
The Least in The Kingdom of Heaven:
but whosoever shall do
and teach Them,
the same shall be called Great
in The Kingdom of Heaven.
20. "For I say unto you,


'THAT EXCEPT YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
SHALL EXCEED THE RIGHTEOUSNESS
OF THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES,
YE SHALL IN NO CASE ENTER INTO
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.' "


Yahshua's Crucifixion didn't change THE LAW nor THE PROPHETS.

. MATTHEW 24:14,35.

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."
35. "Heaven and Earth shall pass away,
but my Words shall not pass away."


NOR DID THE CRUCIFIXION CHANGE ANY PART OF YAHSHUA'S TEACHINGS OR COMMANDMENTS.

. MATTHEW 28:16-20.

16. Then the eleven Disciples
went away into Galilee,
into a mountain
where Jesus had appointed them.
17. And when they saw him,
they worshipped him:
but some doubted.
18. And Jesus came
and spake unto them,
saying,
"All Power is given unto me
in Heaven and in Earth.
19. "Go ye therefore,
and Teach all nations,
baptizing them
in The Name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost:
20. "Teaching them to observe
all things whatsoever
I have Commanded you:
and, lo,
I am with you alway,
even unto The End of The World." Amen.


ALL OF HIS TEACHINGS AND COMMANDMENTS ARE STILL IN FORCE.


THIS IS A MADE-UP DOCTRINE OF MEN.

If we SIN we are still accursed.

If we KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, we are STILL BLESSED.

NOTHING can possibly CHANGE that.

All these people going around claiming to be BLESSED BECAUSE OF THEIR BELIEFS AND WORDS are eventually put to SHAME.

"POSITIVE THINKING" can only take you SO FAR- then your LACK OF FOUNDATION will catch up with you.

The most ICONIC example of this is BAPTIST EVANGELIST BILLY GRAHAM.

He boasted to the World about how BLESSED he was as a FOLLOWER OF PAUL- then he came down with the INCURABLE Parkinson's Disease.

The soft-hearted will like to feel sorry for this WICKED man- but the REALITY is that he had TAUGHT MILLIONS to ACCEPT SATAN'S ATTACK on their lives as THE WILL OF GOD, and THANK GOD for "GRACE TO BEAR" the ILLNESSES and POVERTY that was DESTROYING THEIR LIVES!

That they should FEEL PROUD that they were not like those PENTECOSTAL FULL-GOSPEL "FANATICS," who FOOLISHLY believed that IT WAS THE WILL OF GOD to HEAL EVERY CHRISTIAN!



He is LYING!

There is NO FORGIVENESS OF SINS for those who do not forgive others themselves.

. MATTHEW 18:15-35.

15. "Moreover if thy Brother shall trespass against thee,
go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone:
if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy Brother.
16. "But if he will not hear thee,
then take with thee one or two more,
that in the mouth of two or three witnesses
every word may be established.
17. "And if he shall neglect to hear them,
tell it unto the Church:
but if he neglect to hear the Church,
let him be unto thee
as an Heathen man and a publican.
18. "Verily I say unto you,


'WHATSOEVER YE SHALL BIND ON EARTH
SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN:
AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL LOOSE ON EARTH
SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN.'


19. "Again I say unto you,

'THAT IF TWO OF YOU
SHALL AGREE ON EARTH
AS TOUCHING ANY THING
THAT THEY SHALL ASK,
IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM
OF MY FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.'


20. "For where two or three
are gathered together in my Name,
there am I in the midst of them."
21. Then came Peter to him, and said,
"Lord, how oft shall my Brother Sin
against me,
and I forgive him?
Till seven times?"
22. Jesus saith unto him,
"I say not unto thee,


'UNTIL SEVEN TIMES:'
BUT, 'UNTIL SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN.'


23. "Therefore is the Kingdom of Heaven likened
unto a certain king,
which would take account of his servants.
24. "And when he had begun to reckon,
one was brought unto him,
which owed him ten thousand talents.
25. "But forasmuch as he had not to pay,
his lord commanded him to be sold,
and his wife, and children,
and all that he had,
and payment to be made.
26. "The servant therefore fell down,
and worshipped him, saying,


'LORD, HAVE PATIENCE WITH ME,
AND I WILL PAY THEE ALL.'


27. "Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion,
and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28. "But the same servant went out,
and found one of his fellowservants,
which owed him an hundred pence:
and he laid hands on him,
and took him by the throat,
saying,


'PAY ME THAT THOU OWEST.'

29. "And his fellowservant fell down at his feet,
and besought him, saying,


'HAVE PATIENCE WITH ME,
AND I WILL PAY THEE ALL.'


30. "And he would not:
but went and cast him into prison,
till he should pay the debt.
31. "So when his fellowservants
saw what was done,
they were very sorry,
and came and told unto their lord
all that was done.
32. "Then his lord,
after that he had called him,
said unto him,


'O THOU WICKED SERVANT,
I FORGAVE THEE ALL THAT DEBT,
BECAUSE THOU DESIREDST ME:
33. 'SHOULDEST NOT THOU ALSO
HAVE HAD COMPASSION
ON THY FELLOWSERVANT,
EVEN AS I HAD PITY ON THEE?'


34. "And his lord was wroth,
and delivered him to the Tormentors,
till he should pay all that was due unto him."
35. "So likewise
shall my Heavenly Father
do also unto you,
if ye from your hearts
forgive not every one
his Brother their Trespasses."


THIS TEACHING IS VALID UNTIL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS AWAY- AND BEYOND THAT!

Crucifixion could not change that.
