Abrahams Inheritance

 

Today, reply responds to a presentation made by Danny Danon, Israel’s Ambassador to the Security Council of the United Nations, April 29, 2019, on the “divine deed” of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. The benefits and privileges of divine inheritance must be apprehended through sacred process and spiritual discernment, rather than cultural, legal, geopolitical, and social frameworks. In accordance with national economies and financial procedures, deeds and documents that record purchases and transfers of real property (land) and chattel (material goods) are acknowledged and registered by governments for purposes of allotments and taxation. Deeds also pertain to debts and agreements for payment (we say, transaction fees, loans, mortgages). Abraham’s purchase of a field at Machpelah for a possession and a burying place occurred before an assembly within an open forum at Mamre, and was therefore in such a framework of public witness, procedures, and standards. Abraham’s receipt of the land of Canaan was by inheritance and through a framework of promises made to Adam and Eve whereby the seed of the woman eventually would prevail. Those insisting that the lawful framework for buying and selling must be maintained when considering the status of modern Israel, rather than that for faith and continued interaction with divinity, also are obliged to observe all the other commands, principles, and sanctions that are aspects of the same law. Similarly, those standing on the foundation of ongoing relationship with divinity must acknowledge the full range of promises, prophecies, spirit process, and spirit substance. There should be no switching between frameworks. Maturity is only displayed through accountability, commitment, consistency, integrity and stability. Thus, we are reminded: James 2: 10-11, King James Version (KJV): 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. A fighter in the “Yahoo!

Israel belongs to the Jews — given by God?

Israel’s Ambassador Takes Out Bible at UN to Prove Jewish People’s Claim to Israel

Emily Jones (May 1, 2019)

“The Qur’an itself accepts the divine deed of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.” -Danny Danon, Israel’s US Ambassador

(New York, NY) — [CBN News] Israel’s UN ambassador Danny Danon used the Bible to defend the Jewish people’s claim to the land of Israel during a special session at the United Nations Security Council on Monday. (Image: Screengrab-AP/via CBN News)

Danon was tasked with the job of proving the case for Jews’ connection to the Holy Land during the session. He outlined four reasons, “the Bible, history, international law, and the pursuit of international peace and security.”

In a dramatic moment, Danon opened the Bible and read aloud God’s covenant with Abraham from Genesis 17: “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout the generations for an everlasting covenant. And I will give to you and your descendants after you all the land of Canaan for an everlasting possession and I will be their God.”

Danon then raised up the Bible, turned to attendees and said, “This is the deed to our land.”

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. (James 2: 19-24, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, Abraham was the “Friend of God” where Moses was a covenant partner. Here are some points from the Bible that developing Christian believers are careful to examine when seeking to correctly understand mankind’s dominion over the earth, relationship to divinity through divine utterance (e.g., proclamation; promise; prophecy), and the authority of sacred records. It was not a secular system, or geopolitical economy wherein the transactions between GOD and Abraham occurred. While there were exchanges that compare to issuing promissory notes, the lawful transfer of goods and property through inheritance, and conduct to acknowledge covenant relationship (e.g., circumcision) and mutual obligation, all was anchored in operations of divinity to impart spirit substance from the makeup of GOD that included faith, hope, joy, knowledge, trust, and vision. The establishment and fulfillment of the early covenants are also on record as historical events; yet, there are many subtle points that are often overlooked. It is written:

1. Genesis 18: 18-19, King James Version (KJV): 18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? 19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

2. Genesis 15: 18, KJV: 18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

3. Acts 7: 1-8, KJV: 1 Then said the high priest, Are these things so? 2 And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran, 3 And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee. 4 Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell. 5 And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child. 6 And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years. 7 And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place. 8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.

4. Romans 4: 13-15, KJV: 13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: 15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. 16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 5. Galatians 3: 16-18, KJV: 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

3 that bear record

 

Today, reply is on knowing the mystery and sacred secrets of GODhead. GOD—who is spirit—does not exist using the same relationships described for created beings and living creatures; even so, for the comfort and encouragement of life, GOD is to be known and spoken of as continuing in the same relationships that are meaningful among mankind. Mature Christian believers accept that the sacred knowledge they receive regarding the spirit process, substance, and workings of GOD will not provide the same detail and features as secular knowledge that center on things finite, material, and measurable. A profound consciousness of spirit presence first must be in place before the created may apprehend the truths of divine existence and sacred personhood, or the nature of commitment, communication, exchange, and interaction among the divine. The great gulf between immutable, incorruptible, invisible GOD and those who have been emanated and put forth requires all they receive be understood as merely approximations, estimates, hints, and suggestions that must not be held as full, or complete.

Is God his own son and father?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. (John 3: 11-13, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, among Christian believers, apart from the teachings and works of the church and the holy writings, there is nothing that exists within the material and natural world that explains the existence of GODhead (we also say, divine fullness; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit), and all the relationships they use as otherwise unseen active presence. The information provided from GOD to his created beings and living creatures (we say, the revelation) that speak to his origin, power, presence, sovereignty, and workings throughout the universe must be accepted as spirit substance that, of itself, is accurate, truthful, and sufficient. In addition to the form and life essence (i.e., breath; spirit; word) imparted to the living as their own makeup and substance are inseparable aspects from the makeup of divinity whereby those created are to apprehend and be apprehended of GOD. Included are faith, forbearance, forgiveness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, oneness without sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible—a human record of divinity appearing through thousands of events, within thousands of lives, over the course of thousands of years:

(1.) Deuteronomy 29: 29, King James Version (KJV): 29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

(2.) Hebrews 11: 6, KJV: 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

(3.) Colossians 1: 12-22, KJV: 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) Philippians 3: 7-14, KJV: 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

The absence of information in secular accounts and records for on sacred events and miracles are considered, today.  One of the fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” who use the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

Do you find it odd that the dead were risen from their graves after Jesus’s resurrection walked into Jerusalem?

were supposedly seen by many people and yet only one guy wrote about the occurrence?

You think the Romans would have noticed that.

Matthew 27: 51-53 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God:  and they that hear shall live.  For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;  And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.  Marvel not at this:  for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,  And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.  (John 5:  24-29, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Those Having the True Secrets? (04/14/2015); On Saying the Truth? (12/18/2014); What Is Truth? (12/19/2014); The Judges Who Condemned Jesus? (01/17/2014); About the Second Coming? (01/18/2014); Jesus Scourged (04/05/2014); Brothers, Not Equals  (04/06/2014)

“Anonymous”, when they were first written, the New Testament accounts of miracles and sacred events we now receive through writings in the public domain (or available with copyright restrictions) were originally circulated and shared as personal memoirs, private correspondence, and the peculiar inheritance and tools maintained only by apostles, priests and prophets.  Such material was not intended for those outside the circle of believers.

Christian reports and writings did not come under the severe academic, intellectual, and pedestrian scrutiny we see today.
Keep in mind that the anecdotes, gospels, epistles, testimonies, and declarations of faith valued among the followers of Jesus were of little importance within the framework for systematic military conquest and the rule of nations as pursued by Rome.  Jesus stood accused before the governor, Pontius Pilate, as an unknown figure put on trial by the Jews for their capital crime of blasphemy.  Pilate knew nothing of the crowds that had assembled to hear Jesus speak, that had been healed, and that had been convinced Jesus is the Messiah.  Knowing that such reports would be met with condemnation, indifference, and skepticism, even the Jews who accused Jesus, gave Pilate no description of Christ’s ministry.

Correctly understood, the holy writings (i.e., both Old and New Testament) convey sacred knowledge, and spirit matter from the makeup of divinity (e.g., faith, holiness, longsuffering, wisdom, wrath against sin).  The Scriptures are fitted together to exist as a closed system of divine law, history, and prophesy.  No man receives such truth except through operations of GOD.  Consider again the teachings:

(1.)  1st Corinthians 12:  3, King James Version (KJV):  3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:  and that, no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

(2.)  John 3:  12, KJV:  3 If I have told you of earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)  2nd Corinthians 1:  18, KJV:  18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, more is shared on the Book of Genesis, sacred knowledge, and divine revelation.  Throughout the Bible, the name of GOD, and how divinity is to be known, are proclaimed as a record of sacred deeds.  The holy writings have been given to mankind as tools for spiritual admonition, correction, guidance, and divine judgment.  The Scriptures make visible and reveal salvation, and are not intended for those who want to meddle in or manipulate the things of GOD.  For thousands of years, the word of GOD was shared as history and personal testimony spoken by living witnesses.  In the same way divine law (sometimes called, the covenant) was first provided to mankind in written form through the service of Moses as prophet and seer (the Ten Commandments, the Decalogue), the five books of Moses (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, also sometimes called, the law) were all produced through operations of the Holy Spirit (we say, inspiration) to evidence and preserve sacred knowledge for the elders, priests and spokespersons who would serve the covenant people.  All earlier divine covenants had been established with Patriarchs (i.e., heads of families; selected individuals such as Adam, Abel, Seth, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob) who themselves experienced personal interactions with divinity.  Their households and offspring were to continue specific observances and practices as their duty and inheritance from GOD.  While priesthood and prophecy would continue to be transmitted through the mechanisms of family and inheritance, using Moses, GOD would create a sacred nation made up from the tribes of Jacob and the mixed multitude of non-Hebrew peoples (we say, Gentiles) that accompanied them out of Egypt.  The things found in Genesis will always be necessary for full understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for the context (we say, background and setting) of the things pertaining to judgment, rebirth, sanctification, and salvation from GOD also must come forth in accordance with divine order.  The sin of Adam and Eve (betrayal; disobedience of the law; discounting and ignoring the word spoken from GOD) permanently altered many aspects of human development, and the ongoing process whereby mankind may continue in right relationship with divinity.  The fellowship that was to be maintained through intimate contact, love, respect and trust, became subject to law and ordinances.  Thus, many occurrences that were the first of their kind are recorded in Genesis:  the establishment of sacred institutions to be maintained among mankind (e.g., fellowship with divinity through faith, intercessory prayer, marriage, Sabbath, sacrificial worship); the first physical conflict arising from the different spirit of worship that existed within two brothers, and resulted in death through violence; the first divine act to cleanse the entire earth from sin using the waters containing and surrounding the earth as a flood.  In Genesis the Spirit of God (also called the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth) is introduced as that aspect of the full divine person that performs and completes such sacred operations as the formation of heaven and earth to serve as spheres for life.  The use of carnal beings having awareness and self-will as instruments and repositories of sacred law and purpose are also generated and carried out in mankind today through the same divine essence (we say, breath of life, holy spirit, word) originally imparted to Adam.

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  The First Book of the Bible? (11/20/2014)

Genesis 5:  1-8, KJV—This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;  2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.  3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:  4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years:  and he begat sons and daughters:  5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years:  and he died.  6 And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:  7 And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:  8 And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years:  and he died.

Deuteronomy 29:  29, KJV—The secret things belong unto the LORD our God:  but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

Proverbs 9:  9-10, KJV—Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser:  teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.  10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:  and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Psalms 111:  2-10, KJV—The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.  3 His work is honourable and glorious:  and his righteousness endureth for ever.  4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered:  the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.  5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him:  he will ever be mindful of his covenant.  6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.  7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.  8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.  9 He sent redemption unto his people:  he hath commanded his covenant for ever:  holy and reverend is his name.  10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:  a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:  his praise endureth for ever.

Deuteronomy 17:  8-13, KJV—If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates:  then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall choose;  9 And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment:  10 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee:  11 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do:  thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left.  12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die:  and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.  13 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.

Judges 17: 6, KJV—In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

Deuteronomy 17:  14-20, KJV—When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;  15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose:  one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee:  thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.  16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses:  forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.  17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away:  neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.  18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:  19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life:  that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:  20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left:  to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

2nd Peter 1:  16-21, KJV—For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.  17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.  18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.  19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:  20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:  but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Exodus 31:  18, KJV—And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.

Exodus 32:  19, KJV—And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

Exodus 34:  4-8, KJV—And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of stone.  5 And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.  6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,  7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.  8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

Exodus 34:  27-28, KJV—And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words:  for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.  28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

Deuteronomy 6:  4-9, KJV—Hear, O Israel:  The LORD our God is one LORD:  5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.  6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:  7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.  8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.  9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

Deuteronomy 4:  31-40, KJV—(For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.  32 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?  33 Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?  34 Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?  35 Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.  36 Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee:  and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.  37 And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;  38 To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.

Deuteronomy 10:  1-5, KJV—At that time the LORD said unto me, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and make thee an ark of wood.  And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark.  3 And I made an ark of shittim wood, and hewed two tables of stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two tables in mine hand.  4 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly:  and the LORD gave them unto me.  5 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me.

Deuteronomy 31:  7-13, KJV—And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage:  for thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it.  8 And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee:  fear not, neither be dismayed.  9 And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel.  10 And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,  11 When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing.  12 Gather the people together, men and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:  13 And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.

Deuteronomy 31:  16-22, KJV—And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.  17 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us?  18 And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods.  19 Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel:  put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.  20 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.  21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed:  for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware.  22 Moses therefore wrote this song the same day, and taught it the children of Israel.

Deuteronomy 31:  24-30, KJV—And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,  25 That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying,  26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.  27 For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck:  behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?  28 Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them.  29 For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.  30 And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.

Isaiah 46:  9-10, KJV—Remember the former things of old:  for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,  10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Deuteronomy 30:  6, KJV—And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

Jeremiah 4:  4, KJV—Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem:   lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.

John 5:  39-47, KJV—Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life:  and they are they which testify of me.  40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.  41 I receive not honour from men.  42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.  43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not:  if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.  44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?  45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father:  there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.  46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.  47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Luke 24:  26-27, KJV—Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?  27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

2nd Timothy 3:  14-17, KJV—But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;  15 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.

Romans 2:  12-16, KJV—For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law:  and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;  13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.  14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:  15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)  16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Ezekiel 36:  17-27, KJV—Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings:  their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman.  18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:  19 And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries:  according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.  20 And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the LORD, and are gone forth out of his land.  21 But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went.  22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.  23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.  24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.  25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean:  from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.  26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you:  and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.  27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

Hebrews 1:  1-4, KJV—God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,  2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;  3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:  4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Joshua 1:  7-9, KJV—Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee:  turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.  8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:  for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.  9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

2nd Corinthians 3:  1-9, KJV—Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?  2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:  3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.  4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:  5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;  6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit:  for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.  7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:  8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?  9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.

Hebrews 2:  1-10, KJV—Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.  2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;  3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;  4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?  5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.  6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?  7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:  8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.  9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.  10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

The content, meaning, purpose and value for the Book of Genesis are in view, today.  The “Yahoo! Answers ” writer in the discussion category Books & Authors using the ID “Clara” (Level 1 with 88 points, a member since November 05, 2014) posted the following:

 

The first book of the Bible represents what?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  And God said, Let there be light:  and there was light.  (Genesis 1:  1-3, KJV)

“Clara” here are a few points that have benefited mature Christian believers:

(1.)  The Book of Genesis is the initial written collection of oral histories and records that describe the appearance (we say, revelation) of divinity to mankind using various devices that include divine law, covenant, deliverance (we say, escape, liberation, release, rescue), lawful judgment through plagues, proclamations, sacred events, the rise and fall of nations as well as visitations by angels.

(2.)  GOD is a spirit who has put forth all material beings and living creatures, the conditions and spheres for their duration, with unchanging mechanisms and process for their exchange and interaction with one another, and with divinity.

(3.)  The makeup and substance of GOD must be understood as inseparable (where one appears, all are present) spirit content such as faith, holiness, life, love, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  Spirit matter is not material, therefore the Deity may not described as a cloud, fog, mist or smoke (things made up of physical particles).

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Genesis describes divinity as the single source of existence and order for the entire universe, and introduces the eternal purposes of GOD that include eternal life for mankind following judgment.  Mankind is to be a living companion to divinity, and by operations of GOD, must be cleansed and transformed using death and resurrection to become immortal and incorruptible.  Sacred knowledge of the divine intent is provided to prepare mankind for the appearance of GOD in human form (we say, incarnate) as Jesus Christ.  The word of GOD shared through Genesis conveys divine spirit matter uttered as praise, precepts, prescriptions, principles, proclamations, promises, and prophecy.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.

The earth following judgment is the topic, today.  Also, there is more on the world as a man-made system to support life.  A Top Contributor using the ID “cosmos” (Level 3 with 1,929 points, a member since September 15, 2013) posted the following at “Yahoo!

What does God/Jesus say will happen to the Earth after revelation?

And what will happen to the people in it? Thanks!

THE BATTLE AXE:  The World Passeth Away (11/12/2013)—The world will always exist as a necessary tool, and must continue in some form or other so long as there are created beings and living creatures.  As a man-made system, the world is temporal and incorporates arbitrary and unplanned changes (we say, evil) as well as conflict, decay over time, and human error.  Among the many features of the world that most of us depend upon and use on a daily basis are language, money, technology (e.g., cell phones, computers, television), and transportation.  The world system that serves mankind, is also one of humanities greatest enemies, because information and secular knowledge put forth by the world disrupts communion with GOD, and disables full human awareness of divine action and presence.  See 2nd Corinthians 4:  3-5, John 9:  39-41 and 2nd Peter 1:  2-8, King James Version.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth:  for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:  for the former things are passed away.  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.  And he said unto me, Write:  for these words are true and faithful.  (Revelation 21:  1-5, KJV)

“cosmos”, here are a few points Christian believers usually acquire by their own careful study of the promises, prophecies and record of sacred events from GOD that are recorded in the Holy Bible:

(1.)  The physical earth has been polluted through the shedding of blood.  Blood is a divine tool used to carry life essence (we say, spirit), and may become defiled and unfit for sacred use (we say, can become unclean) through sin.  Presently, mankind cannot eliminate or fully explain sin.  Sin is no material or spirit substance, yet, sin has direction, effect, and presence; and sin may dominate awareness and self-will in created beings and living creatures.

(2.)  Mankind is an aspect of the physical earth, and also is polluted.  Before, a flood of waters to cleanse and wash the earth was used (in Noah’s day); now, the whole earth is to be purified through burning and fire (we also, say judgment).  Made new, there will be no oceans upon the earth; and the earth will be the home of Christ and all those harvested from the earth as redeemed, justified and glorified.

(3.)  The investigation and judgment of mankind in the person of Jesus that began when Christ went back to heaven, and the divine work of applying his own blood to each of the life records belonging to those whom he is claiming from upon the earth, began with the righteous dead from the time of Adam and must continue to include those who will be alive at the time of his second coming.  Once that work is completed, all the righteous will be raised up to join the Lord in the continuing work of judgment, and the preparation of the new earth.  Later, there will be a second resurrection, and the wicked will then appear before Christ to answer their own judgment.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually understood.  (For example, (4.)  Earth is to be the eternal home for mankind, not heaven.  At the close of judgment, distribution of the earth will be performed just like when all who were to enter the Promised Land first were granted an allotment.  Mortality will be ended, and mankind will exist as immortal and incorruptible by sin.)  I trust this fragment will be useful.  Even so, be it unto you according to your faith.  Jesus is coming soon, and it may no longer be truthfully said we were given “no answers,” no opportunities to learn and understand, and no indwelling Spirit of Truth.  Grow in grace.
