Hebrews Part 5

3 of 3

Mark 13:9 “But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils: and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for My sake.”
Mark 13:10 “And the gospel must first be published among all nations.”
Mark 13:11 “But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.”
Mark 13:12 “Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son: and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.”
published (Strong’s 2784) to herald (as a public crier), especially divine truth (the gospel), preach, proclaim, publish.

These are the councils and synagogues of Satan, the churches and religious centers Satan will set up. With our family and friends really thinking it is the second advent, or the return of their religious figurehead like Mohammed, or Buddha, even Messiah, as those of Judaism do not believe Jesus Christ was the Messiah. So you see then how the nations, or this entire world, except the tiny number of God’s election, as we read I Corinthians 15:18 and the kings and queens of the Gentiles, or the other nations not in Israel, as in Acts 9:15. All those people will stand up for the Word of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, for His Word, not some church or religion. But His very Word of God, and HE will put the words into our mouths. That’s why HE says don’t premeditate, or think about what you’ll say before hand, as many of us know what we want to say to Satan. Don’t, for the Word of God, His words, then will be put into our mouths, the flesh remember that God’s Word said in Revelation 12:16, and the Word of God then will be published, meaning heralded, as a public crier, the divine truth, of The Gospel, or the Good News, His Word. Not published in Bibles across the world, but this testimony, that no man cannot fake this. You know these trials will go across the world’s internet and the media, reaching every person all over the globe instantly in seconds. We are living in an exciting time! Put His gospel armor, the Word of God and be successful, always praying to Him as in Ephesians 6:18 for help in working in the Word and then helping others. Then moving along here:

Romans 5:14 “Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression.”

Then from the fall of man in the flesh, for any person is liable to sin, except, the Son of Man, Jesus Christ, meaning He lived in the flesh Body, not in an angelic Body, or spiritual Body, He easily could have put on, through Abraham’s family, or seed, his generations, or geneology, or bloodline, through Jesse, David, then Nathan, on Jesus’ Mom’s, Mary’s, side, as in Luke 3. Then Mary’s dad, of the tribe of Judah, as well as the fact that Jesus was as supposed or by law the Stepson of Joseph as in Luke 3:23. God’s Word rolls out and happens perfectly, as Jesus then fulfilling the Revelation 19:16 prophesy of King of kings, the Judah line, as remember here in:

Revelation 5:5 “And one of the elders saith unto me, “Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.”

The Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the Word, it is so perfect then, as then through Mary’s mom, the tribe of Levi, being the priest line, then Jesus the High Priest, remember as Jesus then is the Melchisedec, or King of Righteousness, so then again, King of kings, and Lord of lords, as in the “Hallelujah” chorus Handel’s Messiah, based on the Word of God! When we say hallelujah, we are saying, Praise Almighty Jah, or God’s Most Sacred Name! Yes! Then as Adam the first poor man in the flesh, with his wife Eve, they both then sinned, of course, we all do, so give these poor people a break, with then Satan right at their side, knowing that the Word of God, Jesus, the woman’s Seed, Jesus, would come as in Genesis 3:15 through Eve and Adam’s family, trying to destroy that Seed, Jesus, Who did come as the Word had told us before. We cannot count on our own ideas, flesh people, or any church or religion, but only in He, the Word of God, the Only One Who can give us eternal life! Be successful and listen to His Word, remember the law and the prophets, as well as the testimony of Jesus, so both Old and New Testament as here and remember in Revelation 12:17 Satan will make war with us, those that love the Lord our God with all our hearts and mind, and don’t worship anyone but Him! That’s who, and here:

Revelation 19:8 “And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.”
Revelation 19:9 “And he saith unto me, “Write, ‘Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.’”
Revelation 19:10 “And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, “See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

This lady, remember the Wife, the many-membered Election all called the Wife who will do what? They will have the testimony of Jesus, Who is the Word of God, and worship HE alone, not men’s traditions, nor church doctrines. Then he tells John, the servant, the apostle that the Lord Jesus used to give us the book of Revelation today, so we have this ahead of time, God loving us all that much so we are prepared in these last days, as in John 3:17, the LORD God giving us Jesus, His Son, not to condemn us, but to help us out:

John 3:17 “For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.”

Now then here then in Hebrews 5:8-10, remember Jesus, Who is the King of Righteousness, Melchisedec, was then made the Author, the Writer of the Word of God, His Words, that we then have the opportunity for salvation, through His blood. Our actions in the flesh purged, and righted, not by what we do, but by His blood of righteousness, His action of love to us all that believe upon Him, for dying for us all, giving up His life one time for all sin. What an awesome dear Lord we serve, right! Then going here, this was not a free gift to the Lord Jesus, but it is rather HE that freely did this for us all, never opening up His mouth, or having the LORD God hammer into Him or convert Him into doing this as some religions and churches do to shove their belief upon people to grow their membership and pick up their numbers. No way Jose! Rather, the unction of the Lord, Jesus Christ, Himself, doing this freely, never wanting anything from us, but our love, as we just read as in Proverbs 1:7, the fear, or the respect and true love of His Word, is how we can even begin to have wisdom in the flesh! Then through this action of Jesus, was all the way back from Adam and Eve up until the very last soul that is born in the flesh, for all people that believe on His Word the opportunity of salvation is through Him:

Romans 5:15 “But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift of grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.”
Romans 5:16 “And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one, to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.”
Romans 5:17 “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by One, Jesus Christ.)”
Romans 5:18 “Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of One the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.”
Romans 5:19 “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One shall many be made righteous.”

The one’s man’s offense, or sin, began with Adam and Eve, let’s not blame them, for all of us, are included here, not one of us could have lived perfectly in the flesh. A man that came close to this was here:

Genesis 5:27 “And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine, so thirty one days less one thousand, as remember the Lord‘s Day is the thousand years, or one day is as one thousand, which comes after this flesh age:

II Peter 3:8 “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

Only the Lord Jesus Christ is perfect. Another way to look at this then the difference is thirty one days, represents using Biblical numerics as God’s Word does, which represents offspring. Through this man’s family, then Methuselah, he had many sons, grandsons, as well as future generations, leading up to Jesus here:

Luke 3:23 “And Jesus Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the Son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,”
Luke 3:37 “Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan,”
Luke 3:38 “Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.”

Remember then up beginning with Jesus, Who was as supposed, or the step Son of Joseph, we would say today by law only, as HE is the Son of God we see that then through many sons down to Mathusala, the same one in Genesis is Jesus’ geneology. God did this so then Jesus would come not only for Adam’s flesh family sons’, and their children, for all peoples, nations and tongues, or languages, that believe in His Word! God’s Word is so perfect, as an example of the number thirty-one, in the thirty first time Abram name is used is regarding the trained servant born in his house:

Genesis 14:14 “And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.”
Genesis 14:15 “And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.”
Genesis 14:16 “And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.”
Genesis 14:17 “And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king’s dale.”

Lot was taken captive, Abram’s nephew, or his brother’s in Genesis 11:27, Abram’s brother is Haran:

Genesis 11:26 “And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.”
Genesis 11:27 “Now these are THE GENERATIONS OF TERAH: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.”

Abram took Lot with him to go to the promised land. Lot then went his own way, to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Here God used Abram to save Lot the first time from the city life, as then this king of Sodom, who was under attack. The point then Abram knew Lot was in trouble, prepared the trained servants to do battle with him against that enemy, just as God’s people are today with the Word of God, so then God can use them to plant His Word, His seeds of truth, not we forcing it upon people as religious fanatics, or missionaries, but let God’s will be in your life. With you open as that wineskin, that is stretchable for His Word to grow in you, not stiff with the traditions of men, religion and church doctrines not founded upon the Word. Moving along now:

Hebrews 5:11 “Of Whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.”

Let's go here now:

Acts 28:27 “For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.’”
Acts 28:28 “Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.”
Acts 28:29 “And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.”
We know by these Jews, which say they are the people of Judah, but in reality are the Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 synagogue of Satan, hounding the apostles, and Paul here, for teaching God’s Word. Again, they thought that these apostles, whose numbers will increasing, were taking from their income, the people they had snowed with their traditions of men, and religion, of the Pharisees and Sadducees, controlling the people, as well as their government, remember back then the church was the government! So their source of income was being threatened! Remember Jesus said you cannot serve two man and mammon, or the ill-gotten gains, ripping off other people, as many sharp businesspeople, who are so greedy they are driven by that greed, that is their idol or tiny god, not the lower-case here! Money is fine, but don’t worship it, be so worried about it all the time you forget about God and His Word! Put the Word first, Who is our Lord, and everything all the blessings that you cannot even imagine will fall into your lap. We have to do our part, God will give you the wood to build your house, or the bricks, but we have to do the building! Now then this is quoting from here:

Matthew 13:13 “Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.”
Matthew 13:14 “And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Easiest, which saith, ‘By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand: and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:”
Matthew 13:15 “For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their eyes are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.’”

Jesus is quoting from Isaiah here:

Isaiah 6:8 “Also I heard the voice of the LORD, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?”
Isaiah 6:9 “And He said, “Go, and tell this People, ‘Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, put perceive not.’”
Isaiah 6:10 “Make the heart of this People fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.”
Isaiah 6:11 “Then said I, “LORD, how long?” And He answered, “Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate.”

The voice of the LORD, the same One when you think about cracking that Bible open yourself, to check me out, or any person, or any church, or pastor, religious leader, bringing you God’s Word, listen not to me, but talk with Him. HE is there always, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, just a prayer away in your mind! No phone to pick up or text message to send, or email, but just think in your mind, and He is dwelling there with you, wanting to help you out. As in Ephesians 6:18 with all prayers and supplications, for when we take our first step of this love and it is a responsibility, too, to be open to Him to love, then that way our actions, by helping out others, by letting His Word then flow through us, when HE sees fit. Not to shove His Word and what we know down somebody’s throat, but maybe when a friend, or even a stranger asks us for help, we are open to do this. Out of our love for our fellow man, but also for the Lord, Himself, just as HE did for us all giving up His life on the cross for us all! What a pleasure it is then to be with Him serving Him, in His many-membered army, standing up for His Word, not some religion or church, but His Word! Then dear Isaiah here who lots of the New Testament Jesus, Himself, as well as Paul, quotes from this Book, this servant, Isaiah, God used, for when God called him, Isaiah answered the call. As here:

Matthew 20:16 “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.”

This is our generation of the fig tree also in Mark 13, let’s go back there. That final generation of the fig tree which began May 1948 when Israel was a nation, many are called over the generations, the remnant, those like Isaiah that brought forward the Word of God, all the prophets, and the forefathers of the nation of Israel, the apostles, all of those teachers of God’s Word, His servants, that some even gave their lives, like John the Baptist, and we know Paul by history both beheaded for teaching His Word. Then as in Isaiah, the people they have the law and the prophets, the Word of God, or the Old Testament, right before their eyes. But had to have physical signs, they could not see the Word of God, then finally when HE was standing right in front of them! If we keep hearing some lie, which could mean your church’s doctrine, or religion, anything which is not in His Word, HE, Himself, again in II Thessalonians 2:3-4, will send you strong delusion. Why would God do that we may ask? Because if we knew the truth of His Word and then worshipped Satan, that would not be good! God does that for those with free will for His love for them, then we have the Lord’s Day, or the thousand years, after this earth age, to teach discipline of the Word of God. Then as here in Mark 13:

Mark 13:14 “But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:”

Satan then as here, that’s why Jesus says if you are in Judea, or Israel today, when Satan sits at Jerusalem at the Mount of Olives in His throne, then run, as that’s not Him, but it is His enemy, Satan! Then as here in Daniel, remember that prophesy that we mentioned in Daniel 10 where the Angel of the Lord, Himself, came to Daniel after Satan was fighting with Him 21 days, as Daniel wanted understanding for the people, us more specifically as this prophesy is for the end days:

Daniel 9:27 “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”
overspreading (Strong’s 3671) an edge or extremity; a wing (of a bird or army); a flap; a quarter (of a building), a pinnacle; (From Strong’s 3670) to project laterally, i.e. to withdraw or remove.

Then during that last period, or the weeks here symbolic of weeks of years. Then Satan comes in the middle of the period, or the hour of temptation just as we mentioned in Revelation 8:1 when he comes in the middle of the hour of temptation, when God allows Satan to tempt and deceive the world to worship him. Satan is that abomination of desolation we just read in Mark 13:14, here in Daniel 9:27, and with the overspreading, or upon Satan’s army that come with him, remember in Revelation 9, that locust, symbolically, who eat up any truth in those with free will, in their minds, or their foreheads, taking away the little truth of His Word they have IF they listen to Satan, their leader, and also in Revelation 12:7-9. Then as here during our generation, which began way back in the Garden of Eden, the serpent’s seed, or Kenites, Cain’s sons, and the Woman’s Seed, Jesus, and His children, as they, Adam and Eve, covered their private parts with aprons, not their mouths with covers as they did not eat an apple, but Satan remember seduced Eve fully as in II Corinthians 11:3. Then through Seth, as then Cain listened to his father, Satan, and murdered, Abel, as Jesus, Himself,
tells us here:

John 8:38 “I speak that which I have seen with My Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.”
John 8:39 “They answered and said unto Him, Abraham is our father.” Jesus saith unto them, “If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.”
John 8:40 “But now ye seek to kill Me, a Man That hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.”
John 8:41 “Ye do the deeds of your father.” Then said they to Him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.”
John 8:42 “Jesus said unto them, “If God were your Father, ye would love Me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of Myself, but He sent Me.”
John 8:43 “Why do ye not understand My speech? Even because ye cannot hear My word.”
John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

These sons of Cain, the Kenites, who say they are Jews, but in reality are the synagogue of Satan of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9. They murdered so many prophets, as well as their ancestor, Cain listened to his dad, Satan, and killed Abel, trying to stop that woman’s Seed, the woman who is Eve, Who then came her Seed, Jesus, as the Word in Revelation 20:10, happened, and as here, Satan does not want to perish:

Revelation 12:5 “And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron:  and her child was caught up into God, and to His throne.”
dragon (Strong’s 1404) (to look) a fabulous kind of serpent (perhaps as supposed to fascinate); dragon.

This Satan, the dragon, here meaning a dragon that uses fascination, so like in Revelation 13:14 God will Satan to bring lighting from heaven, to deceive as many that want to hear his lies! And then God’s Word happened, with Jesus then as in Psalms 110:1 Jesus sitting on God’s right hand on His throne in heaven. King of kings, and Lord of lords. Then us today, remember those of us that try and hear His Word and then do it the best to our abilities, and stand up for His Word, not be deceived, as many teach you don’t need to understand God’s Word, as you’ll be “raptured” or “fly away”! God tells Ezekiel to teach against these fake prophets, in Ezekiel 13:20, and says woe, or watch out! To them! Now back to Mark 13, remember subject end of this world age, and the return of Jesus:

Mark 13:28 “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves ye know that summer is near:”
Mark 13:29 “So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.”
Mark 13:30 “Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.”
Mark 13:31 “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but My words shall not pass away.”

When we get some years, now in 2012 we have 64 years on this final generation, remember as in Jeremiah 24, began the nation of Israel. When it gets some leaves on it, meaning the age, this last generation will not pass away in the flesh, until all of God’s Word happens, all of the chain of events Jesus, Himself, told us here in Mark 13, Matthew 24 and in Luke 21. He states then the ages, the flesh age ends, bringing the next age, which is spiritual, as then heaven will be on earth, and Jesus will stand at His permanent spot that God loved Jerusalem HE married this place spiritually in Ezekiel Chapter 16. We don’t “fly away” nor “get raptured” out, as the Lord is coming back to take His rightful Wife, those elect who are already judged by their previous actions, as well as the Bride, those with free will, for either doing nothing about Satan and not warning the people not to worship him, or could care less! Then finishing up here:

Hebrews 5:12 “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.”
Hebrews 5:13 “For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.”
Hebrews 5:14 “But strong meat belonged to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

Then finally we are all told to really remember to eat up, consume all of God’s Word, as then we can teach it, and share the Word with those He puts into our lives. Not the salvation, over and over again as many churches do, in order to bring new people in and grow their numbers, thus, more wealth and power for them, right! No way! But for the love of the Word of God, serving the Lord, and loving the people truly warning them, that hey guess what! There are two tribulations with Satan coming first claiming to be God, then Jesus comes! NO “rapture” or escape route, but people we need the meat, not the milk of God’s Word. As one tiny verse here or there and then one hour of some guy rambling about what he thinks, or what his or her taught them to teach to their church! No way! But the simple straight truth from the Lord’s Mouth, His Word, chapter by chapter, and verse by verse, following the subject and object, breaking down who said what, and letting the Word teach itself, basically. We just have to be open servants to Him, to lead, as here:

Isaiah 58:1 “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew My People their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”
Isaiah 58:2 “Yet they seek Me daily, and delight to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of Me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.”
Isaiah 58:3 “Wherefore have we fasted,” say they, “and Thou seest not? Wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and Thou takest no knowledge?” Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.”
Isaiah 58:4 “Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.”
Isaiah 58:5 “Is it such a fast that I have chosen? A day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?”
Isaiah 58:6 “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?”
Isaiah 58:7 “Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?”
Isaiah 58:8 “Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and they righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.”
rereward (Strong’s 622) rearguard; to gather for any purpose; hence to receive, take away, I.e. remove (destroy, leave behind, put up; restore, etc) assemble, bring, consume, destroy, fetch, gather (in, together up again); recover (another from leprosy); be (rereward); surely, take (away, into, up); utterly withdraw.

We came for the final verse here, as God is our rereward, meaning He’s got our back! Or our rearguard, the base meaning He gathers us in, recovers us from leprosy, symbolic of sin, by washing our sins in His blood when we repent to His Father Almighty God in His Name! So remember, repent, or ask forgiveness of God in Jesus’ name, and do this sincerely, as He knows what you’ll ask even before you’ve done it, as HE knows it all! By then respecting Him, His Word, as He is there, we show Him this love HE deserves and respect, and then try and sin no more. Remember the sin will be in your memory so you don’t do it again, as a teaching tool. But HE has forgiven you, forgive yourself, and then move on with life. Enjoy! Then, going back to Isaiah 58:1, we can cry aloud means don’t hide it, but teach with His authority, never ashamed for the Word of God. We are never to serve man, but God, not having to be “politically correct” as so many churches are today, so they don’t offend anyone! Get out of here! We are at war, holding up not our rod, but HIS Rod of the Word of God, putting the love for the congregation the many people, our family, our loved ones, our friends, who God may uses for us to plant seeds of His Word, our faith in His Word, is even a witness how we are positive people, with confidence knowing that Our Lord is Truth. His Word is it, there is nothing else, no addition, perfect and complete. Then as the trumpet, as in war, like the sound of “taps” means wake up! The Word of God when taught with authority the people wake up, hearing His Word, not to condemn anyone, but let the Word work within the heart, or the mind of each individual. We are to what? As in Isaiah 58:2, seek Him daily, begin your day praying, really talk with the Lord, as He is ready to hear from you always. Tell Him how much you love Him, then do it! Make yourself useful, you don’t have to be a religious fanatic, but bit by bit, a good word is in His Word for you, maybe to encourage a friend, maybe a co-worker, or a stranger at the store. Be open to Him, that wineskin with some stretch in it, so HE can plant those seeds of truth in His people who are all around us today! Fast from men’s traditions, religion, church doctrine not sound in God’s Word. If you cannot find it in God’s Word, then it’s not from Him! To fight with wickedness, remember in the flesh we are no match for Satan. With the gospel armor around us, holding up our belts, keeping our spiritual pants on as in Ephesians 6:14, especially if you are praying to God aloud, or you say something about your plans in serving him, the devil is right there to stop you. Remember you are the Lord’s servant, so you are number one enemy to Satan, not to frighten you. No way, but rather to remind you why it’s important, to not for one day, to keep with God, pray to Heavenly Father in the name of His Son Jesus, and ask for His help. When we are so out there in our lives, forgetting about God we get in trouble, a very easy trap for anyone today, especially we live in a sad economy, lots of bankruptcy, unemployment, crime, politically way to the left, no pun intended, but look at that shape of our nation! Keep His cover over you, His Word, and you’ll be fine, up to the point we all go into the wilderness. When Satan sits on God’s throne claiming to be God. You think it’s bad now, wait until then, again remember:

Luke 10:17 “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name.”
Luke 10:18 “And He said unto them, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Luke 10:20 “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

Don’t argue with Satan, follow Michael the archangel’s example here:

Jude :9 “Ye Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, “The LORD rebuke thee.”

Do it in Jesus’ Name, as we are nothing without Him, where the authority comes from. This can be over your home, your family, always anoint with the anointing oil of the Lord, the pure olive oil dedicated for this as here:

James 5:14 “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:”
James 5:15 “And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”

We can do this on behalf of our loved ones if we want to, remember that is not the oil, itself, although it physically has many healing elements, like as one of the healthiest oils to cook with and eat, as well as for medical purposes, like putting on insect bites, and so on. God is our natural healer, His Word, then by being obedient to His Word, God then recognizes this, covering our lives, our homes, our families, friends, or whoever we are wanting to bless. Again, not us, but the authority of Jesus Christ, His ability, not our own. You see in some unlearned churches “laying hands of the sick” and then knocking them to the ground. What did Jesus do but touch them, as He is Emmanuel or God with us, His Holy Spirit, that Anointing Oil, told them sin no more, and they are healed, walking, as Jesus lifts up, not pushes down to the ground. Nope. That’s His enemy Satan. One last place here:

Ephesians 6:18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints,”

As we just mentioned in Daniel 9 as Daniel fasting and praying for 21 days for understanding to warn the people this prophesy for understanding was what he prayed. What a servant thinking about us today in this last generation. Also comes to mind, Abram, here:

Genesis 15:1 “After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, “Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.”

Then Abram, this humble servant of the Lord, dear God is saying to Abram, that remember God promised Abram his children’s number you cannot even count as the sand of the sea! Abram, about one hundred years old, and his wife, Sarai, she was about ninety, both well over the age of having kids, and Abram and Sarai, both blessed then, Abram with not only Ishmael, but Isaac in Genesis 17:1-10, who would then come through his seed, his family, then Messiah, Jesus, meaning Jehovah’s Savior, the Anointed One, Christ‘s meaning, for all whomsoever believes on Him to have the opportunity of eternal life, as well as Keturah’s family as in Genesis 32:12. Then as here:

Genesis 18:20 “And the LORD said, “Because the cry of Sodom, and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;”
Genesis 18:21 “I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto Me; and if not, I will know.”
Genesis 18:22 “And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom; but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.”
Genesis 18:23 “And Abraham drew near, and said, “Wilt Thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?”
Genesis 18:24 “Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt Thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?”
Genesis 18:25 “That be far from Thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from Thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
Genesis 18:26 “And the LORD said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.”
Genesis 18:27 “And Abraham answered and said, “Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD, which am but dust and ashes:”
Genesis 18:28 “Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt Thou destroy all the city for lack of five?” And He said, “If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.”
Genesis 18:29 “And he spake unto Him yet again, and said, “Peradventure there shall be forty found there.” And He said, “I will not do it for forty’s sake.”
Genesis 18:30 “And he said unto Him, “Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there.” And He said, “I will not do it, if I find thirty there.”
Genesis 18:31 “And he said, “Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there.” And He said, “I will not destroy if for twenty’s sake.”
Genesis 18:32 “And he said, “Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak yet but his once: Peradventure ten shall be found there.” And He said, “I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.”
Genesis 18:33 “And the LORD went His way, as soon as He had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.”

What a love Abraham has for the people! His prayer so humble, it is so worried and sad for the people, His people, who would then be totally blotted out, or perish, just as Satan, who is the son of perdition, of Revelation 20:10, who God destroyed fully or blotted out of existence both the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, and by the name of Sodom we know by their actions what went on there as in Genesis 19:24:

Genesis 19:24 “Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;”
Genesis 19:25 “Then He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.”
Genesis 19:26 “But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.”

Now going back to Genesis 18, Abraham is so wanting to make sure his nephew, Lot, his wife and their two daughters are okay, and any of his family who may be with them there. That is how thoughtful and loving Abraham is, not worried about his own life, but this nephew, who went after the city, making tons of money. This gives us the type or example for the end, when Satan will be sitting on God’s throne in Jerusalem, people will be very, very wealthy, all debt paid off, any job or title in church or politics you may want, with Satan claiming to be Jesus, God or your religious figurehead, IF you worship him, or take his mark in your hand, meaning do his work like convert your family and friends, or believe he is the Lord Jesus as in Revelation 13:15-17! God will give Satan this authority, why would HE? For God wants to see who really trusts God hear His voice, not religion, or any men’s teaching, or church doctrine, but the straight Word of God, that’s why! Then Abraham asks God if there are fifty there. Fifty represents Holy Spirit. Then forty. Forty five represents preservation. Then thirty. Thirty represents the blood of Christ or dedication. Then twenty.
Twenty represents redemption. Then ten represents testimony or law and responsibility. God really hears our prayers especially when we aren’t so selfish about our own lives, but we love and want to help out and worry about the outcome of our loved ones! Thos prayers HE is really hearing you, so you are not wasting time each day when you pray for family, loved ones, co-workers, relative, and even new friends in your life that HE puts with you! Love them and you are loving Him! Praying for them with all supplication, meaning really mean it, and do it with the authority that Jesus has authorized us with His Word! Then Abraham’s prayers were heard by the LORD God Almighty Jehovah, and HE touches Lot, his wife, and their two daughters, by the hand of His two angels sent there to get Lot and those three ladies out of trouble, leading them out of the cities. Then Lot’s wife, looks back at maybe the tons of wealth they may have had and their jobs, after the Lord commands them not to as in Genesis 19:15, or they would be consumed in God’s consuming fire. Reassuring us today when Satan sits in God’s throne saying he is as God, and deceiving this entire world, just think the majority of people living today, so we are talking billions of people literally! They all will worship Satan, but when God’s wrath the Lord pours out when HE returns ruling with the rod of iron, His Word of God, then you don’t have to be afraid, for the LORD God protects those that love Him and then try and do His Word, not worshipping Satan in the flesh and not bowing a knee to Him! He is our rereward, remember our rear guard, our front guard, like that Light that shined ahead of the people when they walked at night, or when they were in the dark in their camp away from the city, keeping them from harm’s way, just like when Satan is here on earth, the earth then a vast wilderness where His Word will not be taught, only the election, including the Revelation Chapter 11 two witnesses prophesying for God, and then the election God speaking through them for His testimony to the world that His Word is truth it is reality and it is forever! Then as here instead Lot’s wife, she is the example of what it is to be fully destroyed, her body totally blotted out of existence as in Hebrews 12:29, God’s consuming fire, which will devour the middle of Satan as in Ezekiel 13:18-29 as well as Revelation 19:10, marking him the only son of perdition in God’s Word, there is no other to select for but Satan, the devil he is gone, out of here ,but people, we have to get through the flesh, and then the thousand year period. We cannot do it alone, but with our rereward, His Word of God, protecting us from all sides, surrounded and covered with His Word, His blessings, Hallelujah, praise be to God, and Amen, that’s that! Be successful, do His Word and then not worship Satan it’s as simple as that! You don’t have to do some traditions of men, or religion, or church teaching, full of their rules and regulations, but know God’s plan, and HE will then work with you, to get there working in His army maybe to help out a neighbor a loved one, anyone HE puts in your path. We all are the salt of the earth, His flesh, remember we read in Revelation 12:16, the earth that helped the woman, mother Israel, all the nations as well, whomsoever, that believes on His Word as in John 3:16. Then as here:

Matthew 5:13 “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
Matthew 5:14 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”
Matthew 5:15 “Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father Which is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:17 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”
Matthew 5:18 “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.”

We have to keep salty in the Word, knowledgeable, teach with authority, let His Holy Spirit, teach through you making the Word come to life, with feeling and emotion, with compassion and excitement looking forward to His return, but we have to get through that last hour of temptation, when the world will be totally in left field, out in the wilderness, away from the Promised Land, His Word. Then once you have that truth in you, don’t go out on a street corner and start preaching, remember be wise, and let Him naturally put you in the path of maybe someone having a bad day, you then with His Holy Spirit working through you lifting up a person’s spirit who your smile may be all the encouragement they need at that moment in time. I remember one day, an awful day I would rather forget in my life, when a beautiful young blonde girl smiled at me, her faith, as she was going through the exact same experience I was, then encouraged me, and brought my faith right back to Him! What a blessing it is to be one of His servants. Remember He came here to fulfil His Word, making Psalms 22, real, all the details HE was quoting while dying on the cross for my sins, your sins, all of us, thinking about us, His people that love Him. It is a pleasure to serve Him, as remember, only HE will always show us a way out, through His Word. Not as in The book of Job, thirty seven chapters the yackety yack of three Gentile friends, who didn’t even know the Word of God, Job listening to their advice. Then in Job 38:1 God asks Job, where were you when I made this earth age, right at the beginning, stand up like a man and hear my Words, not theirs! That is what God is calling us for, to warn the people, so we don’t get in Satan’s trap of the flesh, hearing His Word. Pray to Him, as I know you can do this, if I can so can you! I love you so much for trying and HE loves you! Keep with Him He is always there! You can do this thing!


At His Service,
