The Holy Bible Is The Immutable Living Word Of The Eternal God.
The Only Bible we Recommend Is The King James / A.V. Bible.
Here’s the reason, shocking but enlightening truth: The Bible Is Used To Deceive
We should all be sighing and crying about the sad state of our world.
And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies:
they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
Ezekiel 20:26 ……
that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD.
A Message From Peter James
Many Weak, Sickly And Sleep
I will do a separate document about physical things ,that we can do to be as healthy as possible,
in these last days. This information is to assist those interested believers in addressing
situations, which they might be facing.
The number of sick people that I know is in the dozens.
1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily,
eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.
1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
These very important verses contain five words which give us one of the reasons that there
is so much sickness and death, even in what many claim to be:
‘The True Church’,
‘The Body Of Christ’
It is all a matter of cause and effect.
Every action has consequences.
The five words, are “not discerning the Lord’s body”.
What exactly do they mean?
I know many people who are sick, some very sick, some are believers, and others are not.
Some even die.
In both cases the situation for most is the same, ‘they do not discern the Lord’s body’.
The ultimate result of rebellion is death.
The ultimate result of sickness is death.
The ultimate result of sin is death.
It therefore follows that rebellion, sickness, and sin are closely related,
and they all have the same result, which is death.
Often believers do not realize that the New Testament including the book of Revelation,
is written to believers.
If this simple point were understood, it most likely would shake many out of their slumber.
The apostle Paul states several reasons for the condition of believers.
There are two acts which have several serious consequences.
The first point says that some partake of the Passover in an unworthy manner.
The first consequence of unworthiness results in damnation.
I always find it amusing to attend a church service, and see the people sitting with their most
serious sanctimonious expressions on their faces.
I am not saying that every one should be laughing and joking,
but it tends to be a false type of ‘religiosity’.
Unworthiness has absolutely nothing to do with our service face.
I have been to church services, which included the ‘Lord’s Supper’,
which in itself is just completely different to what we are told to do.
This is what happened at one of these services.
Of course this was, and I am not suggesting that this happens at all meetings.
Christ only died once, and there was no bloodless sacrifice,
as in the Mass, which can be held many times a day.
The Passover Service is an annual event.
Many children were happily playing at the front of the small meeting.
Then bread, and I am almost sure (if I remember correctly there were cakes),
and soft drinks were served.
The children would have no idea about what they are doing.
This was just the snack break from their playing.
They certainly would not see, nor appreciate the seriousness of what was taking place.
What was done, was fine as regards refreshment,
but it certainly had nothing to do with the Passover that we are commanded to observe.
There are so many problems with this.
The Lord Jesus Christ used unleavened bread, as it was at the time of the Passover, and wine.
He also told us to follow His example, which the above clearly does not do.
Most use leavened bread for these services.
(That is ordinary bread, made with a raising agent, such as yeast).
The problem here is that leaven represents sin, which makes this an abomination.
Some have wanted to know whether the bread or biscuit I use is ‘Kosher’?
We should endeavour to use only things declared as clean by the Eternal God.
We most certainly do not have to get some Jewish Rabbi,
to declare the bread that we are using is acceptable.
This shows a serious error in our thinking, when we give more credence to have a Rabbi,
declare bread clean, when at the same time, they actually reject Christ.
How crazy is that?
If in doubt just mix some flour and water, kneed it into dough, bake it,
and that is the end of the matter.
The Roman Catholic church, with its vast worldwide membership, does use unleavened wafers,
but not only is the entire Mass, is an abomination, see The Abomination Of The Mass
The wafer is inscribed with a symbol.
This is paganism, and sun worship.
They are degrading the sacrifice of Christ, with the bloodless sacrifice of the Mass.
Much worse, is the fact that they say that the bread and wine are literally changed
into the body and blood of Christ.
Therefore everyone participating in this activity therefore becomes a cannibal.
It is an abomination, period.
It is a gross error to somehow conclude that the bread and wine are the body and blood of Christ.
When you clearly see with your eyes, that the wafer remains a wafer and the wine remains wine.
It is a nonsense to claim that this change is a mystery.
It is not without reason that Babylon is referred to as a mystery religion,
but also a HARLOT, MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS.
Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Many non-Catholics then believe that they have nothing to do with the Roman Catholic Church,
which actually controls them, almost without exception.
Some of these Pentecostal type churches,
also believe that they are eating ‘Christ’, therefore they greedily try to eat
more, and more of Christ.
This also is an abomination, that certainly has no reverence to the Passover, whatsoever.
They do not consider that there is no difference, between what they are doing,
and what the Roman Catholics are doing.
Christ only ordained the Passover once.
He did not tell us to do this, when we feel like it.
1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily,
eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.
1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
The second point says that some are not discerning the Lord’s body.
This results in several critical consequences.
Each escalates in severity, and progresses until finally, death results.
The first consequence is weakness.
The second consequence is sickness.
The third consequence is death, which is referred to as sleep.
These verses are very important in aiding our understanding of what is wrong,
with the health of many ‘believers’.
I know many people who are believers,
but their health does nothing to give honour, and glory to the Eternal God.
I will go even further.
If we are not giving pleasure to the Eternal God,
then what is the point of our existence?
The answer is none.
Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power:
for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Maybe we should all stop, and re-evaluate our lives,
and ask exactly what are we doing and why?
Here is another very sobering fact.
If we are not giving the Eternal pleasure, then we can be completely assured that we are also
getting little or no pleasure out of life either,
as we work ourselves into the ground, from which we were taken,
and to which we will most assuredly will return.
If we are not listening to, obeying, praising and thanking God in sincere gratitude,
in reality our lives are simply vanity, and utterly pointless.
If we then have children, who are not taught the truth, then they just perpetuate
the pointless life, which we ourselves have led.
We should spend quality time, and meditate on these things,
because whether we do or not, we are all running out of time and life.
Because the church was unclear about identifying the body of Christ, for the next two chapters,
in Corinthians, the apostle Paul, then gives all the details, of which every believer should be aware.
He gives details of the structure of the church, and the conduct required of every true believer.
We can easily read over ‘not discerning the Lord’s body’, to our peril.
In order to discern the Lord’s body, requires the Holy Spirit.
We have to be careful that we have not extinguished the Holy Spirit,
or just have a tiny flicker left.
If necessary seek the Eternal with Prayer and fasting.
I know of people who have given themselves or have been given the office of Apostle and prophet.
Some of these people are in open rebellion against the Most High God.
Their position is clear for anyone to see.
Many create organizations, some of them very large, and the originators,
set themselves up as tele-evangelists, or they are appointed by some other ‘authority’,
who is also in rebellion.
We have seen that not discerning the Lord’s body has the most serious consequences.
In many church organizations you will find at least two tiers, the overlords, and the sheeple.
The general rule is that often, the sheeple have no idea about what is really taking place.
These often sincere people, are then controlled, manipulated, lied to, and fleeced,
whilst their shepherds live very well, whilst their deceived flocks smell absolute hell.
Ezekiel 34:2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy,
and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds;
Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves!
should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
Ye eat the fat, and
ye clothe you with the wool,
ye kill them that are fed: but (Note carefully the word ‘kill’)
ye feed not the flock.
The diseased have ye not strengthened, (Note carefully how disease is not dealt with)
neither have ye healed that which was sick, (Note carefully how sickness is not dealt with)
neither have ye bound up that which was broken, (Note carefully how brokenness is not dealt with)
neither have ye brought again that which was driven away,
neither have ye sought that which was lost; but
with force and
with cruelty have ye ruled them.
If the flocks, of these false shepherds, had discerned the body of Christ,
(See: False Shepherds )
they would not be in the above situation would they?
They would have looked at the fruit, and realised that the temporary little emotional high,
that they had experienced was not of the Eternal God.
The reality is that they did not discern the body of Christ.
They would have realised that rather than being a part of the Body of Christ,
they were in fact in Babylon.
Instead of being on the path of life, they were on the path of death.
We need to be very clear in our minds, that we are either on the path of life or the path of death.
There is no middle road.
When you are on the path of death, you never stagnate and stand still.
If you observe a branch on a tree or say a rose bush, if it has started to die from the tip down,
you will never see the life below that part that is dying overtake the dead part of the branch.
Sometimes even if the dead part is cut off, at the right point, the power of death will overcome the power of life,
in the rest of the plant. In the end the whole plant will die.
It follows then if you are on the path of life, you are growing, and even bearing fruit.
If you are on the path of death, you are dying.
Many travel even thousands of miles at great expense, seeking and praying for healing,
with little success.
I can categorically say that praying for healing or resolution of problems,
is not the solution to rebellion.
It will surprise some to note that I have actually refused to pray for others,
under certain circumstances.
If someone is doing something that is injurious to their health, and it is made clear to me,
my first question would be, what are you going to do about the destructive habit ?
If the person has no intention whatsoever of changing their bad habit,
then there is absolutely nothing that I, or anyone else can do, there are no magic word solutions.
The very first step is humility, and repentance.
There is yet another important aspect to this.
Because of their past experiences,
there are some that do come into touch with the genuine Body of Christ,
and unfortunately they do not discern the Body, and they filter everything through their past
For one reason or another, they prefer to keep one foot in the false religious system of Babylon,
they are swayed by peoples charisma and titles.
I know of many people who are suffering seriously in this way, right now.
The end result is that,
They are weak.
They are sick.
You can see that the matter of discerning the body of Christ is not a small matter at all.
Many come across the Body of Christ ,and continue searching, and learning, but never coming
to a knowledge of the truth.
Many people, including believers are trapped into forever searching for truth on the Internet.
There is truth there alright, but in most cases, there is a subtle mix of error, which entraps them.
The end result is that they do not discern the ‘Lord’s body’, and they continue their lives,
in just the same way as it has always done.
They do not realize that just like the tell-a-vision, the internet is a prime tool of Satan,
So most times they end up even more confused than before.
Carefully consider all the verses before reading verse 7
These verses are speaking about our time right now.
We have many who have a form of godliness, but who deny the power of the Eternal God.
We are clearly told to turn away from such people, whether they are pastors, or lay people.
1 Timothy 3:1 ¶ This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
1 Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
1 Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce,
despisers of those that are good,
1 Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
1 Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
1 Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses,
and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
1 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Christ said that His sheep would know His voice.
John 20:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
John 20:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
This means that when Christ’s genuine sheep hear His voice, they discern it for what it is,
and they follow Christ, as they are led.
It is also very important to do what we are told.
We have had several warnings that the Eternal is not happy with us,
because we are not listening to what He is using others to tell us.
I have some very interesting situations that illustrate the importance of discerning the Lord’s body.
There are some people, whom it appears that Christ is not calling, at this precise moment,
however, they discern the Lord’s body, and they are blessed for so doing.
Quite impossible positions work out for them.
They honour the understanding, which they have.
They have a great respect for those whom the Eternal God is using, and they are blessed for doing so.
Then there others who know better and should be doing better, who are simply confused.
This lady and her husband recognised Elisha for what he was, a servant of the Most High God.
Though he had not asked her for anything, they offered him and his servant, unconditional hospitality.
2 Kings 4:8 ¶ And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman;
and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as oft as he passed by,
he turned in thither to eat bread.
2 Kings 4:9 And she said unto her husband, Behold now,
I perceive that this is an holy man of God, which passeth by us continually.
2 Kings 4:10 Let us make a little chamber, I pray thee, on the wall;
and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick:
and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither.
2 Kings 4:11 And it fell on a day, that he came thither, and he turned into the chamber,
and lay there.
This is how Elisha regarded the hospitality they received.
He was quite prepared to speak even to the king on her behalf.
2 Kings 4:13 And he said unto him, Say now unto her,
Behold, thou hast been careful for us with all this care; what is to be done for thee?
wouldest thou be spoken for to the king, or to the captain of the host?
And she answered, I dwell among mine own people.
His servant then told him, that her husband was old, and that she did not have any children.
2 Kings 4:16 And he said, About this season, according to the time of life,
thou shalt embrace a son. And she said, Nay, my lord, thou man of God,
do not lie unto thine handmaid.
2 Kings 4:17 And the woman conceived, and bare a son at that season that Elisha
had said unto her, according to the time of life.
It is clear that Elisha enjoyed hospitality for several years.
Then the child died.
2 Kings 4:18 ¶ And when the child was grown, it fell on a day,
that he went out to his father to the reapers.
2 Kings 4:19 And he said unto his father, My head, my head.
And he said to a lad, Carry him to his mother.
2 Kings 4:20 And when he had taken him, and brought him to his mother,
he sat on her knees till noon, and then died.
Consider carefully what the woman did.
She took the dead child, and laid him on the bed of the man of God.
Oh that we might have the discernment that she had.
2 Kings 4:21 And she went up, and laid him on the bed of the man of God,
and shut the door upon him, and went out.
She then went in great haste to the one she knew was a man of God.
She did not go to the nearest minister, or church group.
2 Kings 4:22 And she called unto her husband, and said, Send me, I pray thee,
one of the young men, and one of the asses, that I may run to the man of God, and come again.
2 Kings 4:23 And he said, Wherefore wilt thou go to him to day?
it is neither new moon, nor sabbath. And she said, It shall be well.
This was a crisis and she acted as such, with utmost speed.
We fuss, argue and often just do our own thing.
2 Kings 4:24 Then she saddled an ass, and said to her servant, Drive, and go forward;
slack not thy riding for me, except I bid thee.
Notice that the man of God, saw her racing towards him, whilst she was yet afar off.
She was totally focussed to get to her objective.
Elisha told his servant to run to her, and ask if all is well.
The Eternal God does the very same thing.
Often we just turn away, and go speedily, in the opposite direction,
and we try our own solutions, which will inevitably fail.
We have already passed the point of no return.
Christ is the only solution, there is simply no other way.
You had better believe it.
2 Kings 4:25 So she went and came unto the man of God to mount Carmel.
And it came to pass, when the man of God saw her afar off,
that he said to Gehazi his servant, Behold, yonder is that Shunammite:
2 Kings 4:26 Run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and say unto her,
Is it well with thee?
is it well with thy husband?
is it well with the child? And she answered, It is well.
2 Kings 4:27 And when she came to the man of God to the hill, she caught him by the feet:
but Gehazi came near to thrust her away. And the man of God said,
Let her alone; for her soul is vexed within her: and the LORD hath hid it from me,
and hath not told me.
2 Kings 4:28 Then she said, Did I desire a son of my lord? did I not say,
Do not deceive me?
Elisha then sends his servant with his staff. and with great urgency to the child,
with instructions of what he should do.
2 Kings 4:29 Then he said to Gehazi, Gird up thy loins, and take my staff in thine hand,
and go thy way: if thou meet any man, salute him not; and if any salute thee,
answer him not again: and lay my staff upon the face of the child.
The diligence and perseverance of this dear woman is wondrous to behold.
She refused to leave Elisha’s side, and he promptly followed his servant Gehazi to the woman’s home,
where the child lay dead.
2 Kings 4:30 And the mother of the child said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth,
I will not leave thee. And he arose, and followed her.
Gehazi did as he had been instructed, but the child remained dead.
2 Kings 4:31 And Gehazi passed on before them, and laid the staff upon the face of the child;
but there was neither voice, nor hearing. Wherefore he went again to meet him,
and told him, saying, The child is not awaked.
The Eternal wanted Elisha to act directly in this particular situation.
Elisha then was granted by the Eternal God to bring the child back to life.
Can you see the importance of discerning where the Lord is truly working.
It is exactly the same for us today.
We need to hold in high esteem those with whom the Eternal God is working.
We need to discern the body of Christ.
2 Kings 4:32 And when Elisha was come into the house, behold, the child was dead,
and laid upon his bed.
2 Kings 4:33 He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain,
and prayed unto the LORD.
2 Kings 4:34 And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth,
and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands:
and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm.
2 Kings 4:35 Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up,
and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times,
and the child opened his eyes.
Elisha gave the woman back her son alive and well.
2 Kings 4:36 And he called Gehazi, and said, Call this Shunammite.
So he called her. And when she was come in unto him, he said, Take up thy son.
Look at the wonderful attitude of the woman.
Oh that we were like that today.
2 Kings 4:37 Then she went in, and fell at his feet, and bowed herself to the ground,
and took up her son, and went out.
The fact is that Elisha as well as all the Old Testament prophets, were part of the body
of Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Those who honoured them were blessed.
It is as simple as that.
The matter of discerning the body is so very important that the apostle Paul spends
the whole of 1 Corinthians Chapter 12, defining for us the Body of Christ.
Many churches use this chapter to lord it over the sheeple in their churches.
It therefore follows that many are dubious about anyone, whom the Eternal God is using,
whether they are true or false servants of the Lord.
The fact however, remains that there are definite offices in the body of Christ,
even though at this time, the body is scattered, and not in any one place.
The apostle Paul explains that that there are different spiritual gifts,
just as there are different positions of service.
1 Corinthians 12:1 ¶ Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. . . .
1 Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
1 Corinthians 12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God
which worketh all in all.
We are then told the purpose of the gifts, and it is certainly not of gaining pre-eminence
The specific purpose is to benefit the whole body
1 Corinthians 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
The apostle Paul then lists many of the gifts in 1 Corinthians 12: 1 – 11.
1 Corinthians 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom;
to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
1 Corinthians 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit;
to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
1 Corinthians 12:10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy;
to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues;
Note babbling in some incoherent gobble de gook, is not from the Eternal God, but rather
of our adversary. The fact is that many prefer to be involved in this activity rather than
actually doing what they have been commanded, in plain and simple English,
or any other genuine language. see: Speaking In Tongues
The truth is that often we willingly choose to live in denial rather than to obey.
to another the interpretation of tongues:
1 Corinthians 12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit,
dividing to every man severally as he will.
The apostle Paul then moves on to explain the many parts and offices of the body of Christ.
He has to do this so that we who have been called out of Babylon, can realise that there is
a structure to the body of Christ, and it is not a haphazard indiscernible chaotic entity.
He also shows that every part of the body is important.
1 Corinthians 12:12 ¶ For as the body is one, and hath many members,
and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body,
whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free;
and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
1 Corinthians 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.
1 Corinthians 12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body;
is it therefore not of the body?
1 Corinthians 12:16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body;
is it therefore not of the body?
1 Corinthians 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing?
If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
We should all be satisfied with whatever function we might be given,
because what we have been called to do has been carefully decided before the foundation
of the world.
We have been designed with that purpose in mind.
Of course we often feel that we know better than our Creator.
It is the height of folly to want to do what you might see someone else doing,
whilst labouring under the delusion that it would somehow improve our lifes.
It is totally absurd.
It would be like taking up a hammer to saw a piece of wood.
We should humbly accept that the Eternal God knows best and be content.
We should consider that we have made most of the decisions in our lives,
without worrying too much about what the Eternal God decrees.
It is also very easy to see that most of what we have decided has ended in dismal failure,
therefore it follows that we must be doing something very wrong.
As we have led a life of making a whole series of erroneous decisions,
which have brought us to the position in which we now find ourselves,
we should realise that we can do the very same thing when it comes to our Christian life,
and our calling.
It is cast iron guaranteed that our adversary has carefully prepared the pitfalls
to side track us, so that we are not only sent down countless blind alleys,
but we once again revert to doing our own thing.
We then reap needless weakness, sickness and even death.
1 Corinthians 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body,
as it hath pleased him.
The importance of all the body’s parts is carefully spelt out for us.
1 Corinthians 12:19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
1 Corinthians 12:20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
1 Corinthians 12:21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee:
nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
1 Corinthians 12:22 Nay, much more those members of the body,
which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
1 Corinthians 12:23 And those members of the body,
which we think to be less honourable,
upon these we bestow more abundant honour;
and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
1 Corinthians 12:24 For our comely parts have no need:
but God hath tempered the body together,
having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
Once again the purpose of oneness is clearly stated.
1 Corinthians 12:25 That there should be no schism in the body;
but that the members should have the same care one for another.
We are told that as in the human body, if one part suffers the whole body suffers.
This means that we cannot be sickly, and casually think that it does not matter to the rest
of the body, because we are clearly told that it does matter.
Similarly when we are honoured the whole body should rejoice.
1 Corinthians 12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it;
or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
1 Corinthians 12:27 ¶ Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
The offices in the body of Christ are then defined for us.
This sets us a serious dilemma.
If we cannot even discern the Lord’s body,
how are we going to discern the positions in the Lord’s body?
1 Corinthians 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles,
secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings,
helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
1 Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers?
are all workers of miracles?
1 Corinthians 12:30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues?
do all interpret?
1 Corinthians 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts:
and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
Having clearly defined the body of Christ for us, the apostle Paul then goes on to explain
to us what the conduct of the body of Christ should be.
We are told that the very things that many are earnestly desiring,
are not the really important things at all.
1 Corinthians 13:1 ¶ Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels,
and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
1 Corinthians 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries,
and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains,
and have not charity, I am nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,
and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
We are now told the qualities that genuine believers, who are part of the body of Christ
should almost automatically be part of their make up,
because of the indwelling Christ, as the Holy Spirit.
Sadly those called at this time display the very opposite of some of these qualities,
impatience, unkindness, envy, pride, self-exaltation and ego.
1 Corinthians 13:4 ¶ Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
1 Corinthians 13:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
1 Corinthians 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
1 Corinthians 13:7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things,
endureth all things.
1 Corinthians 13:8 ¶ Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;
whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
We have all been so brain washed by the various educational systems that are in operation today,
that we do precisely the opposite of what the Eternal God has commanded us to do.
We are then caught up in a carefully devised system of lies, deceit, control and manipulation,
and just as if we are hypnotized, and in a dream, we gullibly sleep walk,
in pain and suffering to our death.
Unfortunately this is not something that is confined to non-believers.
Sadly, many believers suffer in this way.
Some respond to me that they are going through a ‘Job’ trial syndrome.
They tell me that they have no idea for how long they will be sick.
They tell me that they hope that their sickness will bring honour to God.
They then continue in their rebellion, and so their sickness continues.
The problem for them is that they are not ‘Job’.
I know of many sick, and even very sick ‘believers’.
I know of many, who are not experiencing the ‘Peace’ that they should be experiencing,
regardless of their circumstance.
It would be true to say that they are in confusion.
I am not judging a single person, but I hope that this matter of discerning the Lord’s body,
is now a little clearer, and that we will take the necessary steps to make the required changes,
so that the body of Christ is healthy as it ought to be.
We must come completely out of Babylon.
There is no other way.
Be Humble Repent Listen To The Eternal God Obey Him.
This is very easy to say, but I assure you that it is physically an impossibility without
the empowerment of the Eternal God.
Just going up to some altar call, running to some church, or isolating yourself
in the hope that somehow it will all go away, will not do it.
What are you going to do about it before it is too late?
