THE MYSTERY OF THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHECY REVEALED.

Brethren in Nashville, Tenn. and I have together searched to find an article or book written on the above subject, since after months of not finding any articles except what is written in commentaries, and that is little, and does not serve the purpose that I wish to present. Therefore, since the Mysteries of the prophets had never been revealed to man, except to Abraham, Gal. 3:8, it was God’s plan that the Mysteries would be revealed by Christ and the Apostles in the first century, and would be revealed only once; and after that, they were revealed, they were finished, completed, and fulfilled. Today I can fully appreciate all great men who has gone on before me, who has BELIEVED in the Mysteries of Christianity, and who was persecuted for that stand. Further I have lived to see that today men are talking about the Mystery of Christianity which began in Gen. 3:15, I am happy to say that this lesson has brought the Old Testament prophecy together with the New, and shows beyond any Scriptural doubt that the Holy Spirit did in the first century proclaim the Revelation in full to the saints.

Now since I became acquainted with Foy Wallace, And began to hear him preach on Radio in the early sixties, I began to question his teaching; to say the least it was not what I had been taught in regards to fulfilled prophecy, I began a search of the Scriptures, remembering that Bro. Paul Simon had informed me   that 1 Tim. 2:15, was just as important to obey as was Mark 16:16, the results was that the more I studied the more I learned the truth. Before Bro. Wallace died he wrote the Revelation, as soon as I received his book in 1967, I began teaching fulfilled prophecy. I could not prove it to be unscriptural or in error. I have written several books on fulfilled prophecy, and have a web site ---www.biblicalfulfillment.org ----- all dealing to some degree with fulfilled prophecy, Also in the mid fifties, my family and I attended Church at Chipley, Florida, where Brother Paul Simon tutored me for some time though he is gone I owe a debt of gratitude to him. He was a great teacher. His theme, Preach all the Word, all the Word is inspired, 2 Tim. 3:16. Bro. Simon did not use the issue of Fulfilled Prophecy; but he taught all of a subject without picking out an issue of confusion his issue, which he pressed was Belief, and obedience. Bro. Simon was truly an imitator of Christ. When Bro. Simon said teach all the Word, he implied that to remove only what the teacher chose out of any Context, resulted in the lesson being incomplete, and invalid. Therefore, avail oneself of all the evidence pertaining to the subject, the audience is required to study allow them the right to find for themselves the truth of the subject, Rom. 12:2, PROVE WHAT THE WILL OF GOD IS.

It is my intention in this lesson to show that the Mysteries of prophecy has in fact been fulfilled in the long ago, and I want to stress the importance of the word BELIEF, this word was used to describe the righteousness of Abraham, in Gal. 3:8 he is identified as the believer, Gen. 15:6, keep that in mind, and we will see the importance of this word as we study the mysteries. Keep in mind that Abraham was a faithful man, a righteous man, and for many years petitioned God for a son from his loins; years went by, he and his wife passed the years of child bearing, he was distressed over the problems in is life. God came and spoke to him in Gen. 15:1-6, God promised Abraham a son this time next year. Verse 6 informs us that now Abraham believed God’s Word. Belief is an important element in obtaining God’s blessings. This belief is proven in Gen. 22:1-8, God spoke to Abraham and said, “take now your son, your only son and offer him as a burnt offering,” verse 7 “Behold the fire and wood, but where is the Lamb for the burnt offering?” Verse 8, “God will provide Himself the Lamb for the burnt offering,”

          The above fact does not stand-alone. I beg that you consider Luke 1:5-33, here we have a proof reference of disbelief, Zacharias, a Priest, and his wife had also petitioned God for a child, now their years of child bearing was gone; but the Angel Gabriel appeared to Zacharias and informed him that his wife would bear a son and his name would be called John, and it would be he that would be a forerunner before Him {Christ}, and John would come in the spirit of Elijah. Zacharias questioned the Word of God, “how shall I know for certain?” Verse 20, “and Behold, you shall be silent and unable to speak until the day when these things take place, BECAUSE you did not Believe my words, which shall be fulfilled in their proper time.” After the conception of Christ, Zacharias received the Holy Spirit and began to prophesy Luke 1:67-80. Zacharias was a Priest, a Teacher, he taught Malachi chapters 3-4; but did not Believe God’s Word would be fulfilled; but the Holy Spirit revealed the Mystery to Zachariah, and he not only became a believer in fulfilled prophecy; but he became a teacher of it. And today how many people even Believes 1 Cor. 3:16? In regards to our body being the Spiritual Temple of God, and that the Holy Spirit dwells therein?

A special note: I choose to speak to you as if you and I were alone in your home, where the conditions would be One on One. I am my best when I can be myself, really I try to imitate the Apostle Paul, who said “he was all things to all people’. Let me say before I offer any evidence to prove the above fact, that I firmly believe that as the Apostles revealed the Mysteries; they were completed and fulfilled; they were no longer a Mystery, rather a reality to enjoy. Further I believe that as we study each Mystery we will find certain parts of the Gospel revealed, either before, or after the sentence which identifies the Mystery, and further yet, If these parts of the Gospel has not already been revealed, uncovered to be seen and used as God’s plan of salvation, then the Gentile World has no Gospel, no Grace, no Salvation. Common sense tells you that when someone sends you a gift through Registered mail, you are to open that gift, and use it. If the gift is never opened you really do not know what it contains! You die, and the gift remains unopened, who does it benefit? The same is true with the Mysteries; if the Mysteries are not revealed until sometimes in the future, how do we know about salvation, Redemption, and the New Spiritual Covenant between Christ and those who will Believe?

          God spoke the first prophecy to the evil Serpent, and to Eve, and said “I will put enmity between your seed and the seed of the woman, and you shall bruise Him on the heel, and He shall bruise you on the head”. Gen. 3:15.

The ramifications of this mysterious prophecy encompasses the whole N.T. and remained a Mystery until the Holy Spirit revealed the true meaning to the Apostles. God’s plan had now been revealed to the saints. It is not to be fulfilled some time in the future. Heb. 2:14 shows only a part of the fulfillment. {STUDY}

God and the prophets used types, patterns, and shadows. If they are not to be revealed until sometime in the future, then they are useless to us for we are not Jews, and the only religion would be Judaism! However, Scripturally speaking that is not the case. If it was the case then Eph. 2:8-16, is in Error. Do you believe these Scriptures are in Error?

Eph. 2:11-16, brings the Mystery to light, that is it reveals the truth that no one can deny without blaspheming the Holy Spirit; but we must remember there are in all the Churches those who will do just that, in order to have their traditional ways, I suggest that in most cases the Elders is to blame for the truth not being taught in the Churches of Christ; they are not “apt to teach”. Why are they not “Apt to teach”? Most Elders is chosen because of their wealth, popularity, and outgoing appearance, not because of their knowledge of God’s Word; they are the ones who should be able Scripturally to discuss any issue within the Bible on God’s terms, not on the traditional opinions of the preacher, who in past years has become CHURCH PASTORS; they are the ones who first makes Church policy, and the Elders says, “YES”. Knowing for oneself, and proving what the Will of God is, Rom. 12:1-2, is one of the most important qualifications for an Elder; but we will speak upon that thought again shortly. “Therefore remember, that formerly you the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by the so called Circumcision, which is performed in the flesh by human hands. Remember that you were at one time separate from Christ, excluded from the common wealth of Israel, and strangers to the Covenant of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in the Messiah you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one, and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace. And might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity” Eph.  2:11-16. Read Rom. Ch 11, for understanding this Mystery, the grafting in of the Gentiles, then it will help to read Matt. 21:43.

          Eph. 2:12, Let the futurist chew on this for a while----If the Mystery of the Old Testament has not been revealed, then these passages is in error, and the Gentiles has no hope and are without God. To deny what the Holy Spirit has written through the Apostle is to show malice toward the Holy Spirit, which constitutes blasphemy Matt. 12:32. Now this is terrible; but think of all the Gentiles that has lived and died without God, since the first century, if the futurist is correct regarding Eph. 2:11-16. That its fulfillment is yet future! If this were true then Christ has not finished His Works, and we are without God and have no hope. This is not an opinion but truth.

Such argument is of the darkness, and I will teach them, the written Word, all of the written Word; but I will not teach them scare tactics, such as Christ’s second coming in fire to destroy the universe, and restore the Zionist Jews to their original land, neither will I teach a future judgment and resurrection. I will love them, I will study the truth with them, but I will not join into traditional opinions that cannot be proven Scripturally. Further I will expose them, whether they be in the Church of Christ or denomination, Eph. 5:10-12.

1 Cor. 2:11-16, “For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him, even so the thoughts of God no one knows, except the Spirit of God, -- V. 12, now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God, V 13, Which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words, V. 14, but a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised”.

AN IMPORTANT PROCLAMATION.

I followed the teaching of FOY WALLACE, until his death, after his death I was so in love with the idea of restoring first century teaching that I really began to study the teaching of fulfilled prophecy. I studied the prophets in the Southern Christian University, And in the International Bible College in LA. I soon learned that before they were fulfilled; they were mysteries, and that they remained mysteries according to God’s will until the time of the Messiah and the Apostles, I found that it was God’s plan from the beginning, Heb. 4:3, For the Messiah to be crucified, and the Holy Spirit be sent to them, Acts chapters one and two, that they, the Apostles was given authority to unwrap the mysteries and teach them. It is an inexpugnable fact that when the mysteries was revealed by the Holy Spirit to the Apostles, then they were no longer a mystery; they were completed finished, and fulfilled. This fact is affirmed by Zacharias the father of John the Baptist after

He had received the Holy Spirit and began to reveal the Mystery surrounding his son and the Messiah, Luke 1:67-80. Which the Holy Spirit revealed to him; thus sayeth The Inspired Scriptures.

In my quest to continue to teach the fulfillment of prophecy and to Restore first century teaching, I have remained in the South, I have taught in other states, as well as the Islands in the west Indies, India, Africa, Philippines, Canada, I have several books that I have written, I have a Web Site, www.biblicalfulfillment.org I am 80 years of age, in a wheel chair; But I will continue to teach the Mystery of the Gospel as my early tutor Paul Simon encouraged me to teach that Bible which will Restore the Lord’s Church, that is every Scripture which is Inspired by God, 2 Tim. 3:16. I therefore, proclaim that 1 Cor. 2:11-16 Separates those who oppose fulfilled prophecy, and those who are truly teaching what the Spirit has written. According to this passage those who oppose fulfilled prophecy are those described in verse 14, they are natural man, and do not have the Spirit of God. They are natural because they will not openly discuss this issue. I further proclaim that their real reason falls into the category of Rom. 14:10, there is no other reason, so they remain a natural man! Rom. 14:10, but you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we shall stand before the judgement seat of God…I have served two Churches during 50 years as an Elder, and preacher, I served with great men, men who would stop a Gospel meeting when a preacher would skip over several verses in Scripture reading, simply because he did not believe in the things that the Holy Spirit had written through the Apostle. In short, some things were foolishness to Him--- “The things of God”. Results were that the main subject of the Scriptures were left MUTE, I proclaim that every Scripture is inspired by God, and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness, 2 Tim. 3:16. The Churches that I have served as an Elder believed this strongly, and the Elders would not allow a preacher, or teacher to pass over scripture that was in the context of his lesson. I PROCLAIM that our God fully intended that the Church carry on in this fashion.

BEGINNING THE STUDY OF THE MYSTERIES OF THE HOLY PROPHETS.

Dan. 4:9, the occasion for this mystery was that dream, or vision that King Nebuchadnezzar had in this chapter. King Nebuchadnezzar was troubled in regards to his dream, called for all his wise men, and conjures, those who were supposed to interpret dreams. However, these men could not interpret this dream, the King called for Daniel, Daniel came to him, Notice what the king says to Daniel, keep in mind that Daniel’s name had been changed to Belteshazzar, “O, Belteshazzar, chief of the magicians, since I know that a Spirit of the holy god’s is in you and no MYSTERY baffles you, tell me the vision of my dream which I have seen along with its interpretation.”

The first thing to notice is that Daniel was to relate to the King in detail what he had dreamed, and then turn and give him the interpretation. The king to show that Daniel truly had the Spirit of God, and that God would work through only the man that possessed the Spirit of God did this. And so, Daniel foretold the King’s dream, and gave him the interpretation. God used Daniel in just the same way that the Holy Spirit used the Apostles. God related to Daniel what he was supposed to say, the MYSTERY was opened up, revealed, finished, fulfilled, this should serve as a pattern in the New Testament, for it is a pattern, and a type of what would take place in the New Testament, in regards to the Mysteries in the New Testament.

There are some important points that the reader should consider.

# 1. The Kings wise men, and conjures, were just men; they did not have the spirit of God in them.

# 2. They did not believe in the things of God; they were foolishness to them, they were the natural man.

# 3. Now we come to the man, who believed in the things of god, in as much as he laid his life down in the defense of the truth. He had the Spirit of God in him; therefore God could work through him and did. Little did Daniel know that what he was doing here would serve as a pattern for revealing the New Testament Mysteries? That only men who possessed the Spirit of God was chosen to reveal the Mysteries of the Gospel, like the Mystery of the King, when the Mystery was revealed by men of God concerning the Gospel of Christ, it was completed, finished, fulfilled.

Matt. 24:14, informs us that these men Would go over the whole earth and reveal the Gospel to every creature under heaven, also Col. 1:23. Then in Col. 1:26, Paul says that “the Mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints”. Now consider this statement: If Col. 1:26 is inspired by God, it is true: in this scripture the Holy Spirit said in the first century, “But now has been manifested to His saints”. Manifested, means to make known, to reveal, to open up to understanding, what was manifested? The Mystery of the gospel of the Messiah, If it was manifested to every creature under heaven, 1 Cor. 1:23, then there is nothing left to be fulfilled. Dan.12: 6-7, the angel makes known to Daniel that when the power of the holy people was destroyed, all these things would be completed. Fulfilled.

Eph. 1:3-9, look at the things that were revealed under this Mystery.

# 1. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ”.

The heavenly places in the Messiah is to be in His Body, the Church of the Messiah Rom. 6:3-12, Rom. 12:5, “we are one Body in Christ.” Present your bodies a living sacrifice, Sacrifice the things of the world, you cannot serve God and the Devil; let a Christian light shine, so that others can see Christ in you. Rom. 12:1, And Prove what the Will of God is how can you prove what the will of God is unless you study God’s Word. You cannot let the preacher, teacher, or Elder study for you. God must approve of your personal study, Rom 12:2, 2 Tim. 2:15, 2 Tim. 3:16.

# 2. Verse 4, “Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him in Love.” No one has ever known, {except Abraham Gal. 3:8} That God planned for us in the beginning, before the foundation of the world, And in that plan he also planned for our salvation, and upon applying your life to the revelation which is directly connected to this verse in Rom. 6:3-12, then you are holy and blameless.

# 3. Verse 5, “He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ Himself, according to His will”.

Rom. 8:12-16, fully explains God’s plan for the converted person, who is directly connected to this statement, He predestined us to adoption as sons; but only through the Messiah. Now if this mystery had never been revealed before, even from the beginning until the Apostle said, “This mystery has now been manifested”. Col. 1:26. So likewise this mystery in Eph. 1:3-9, has also been manifested, it has been revealed. Rom. 8:12-16, informs us what we must do to become “adopted sons.”  How could the Apostle teach such Spiritual things if God’s plan had not been revealed to him, as it was to Abraham, Gal. 3:8?

# 4.  Verse 6, “To the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.”

          “The glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the beloved”.

First let it be known that under the law of Commandments men was not saved by the Grace of God, Grace was not known until Messiah the Beloved came, and died for our sins, since that time until eternity men are known as Abraham was, he was known as Abraham the believer, because of faith and grace, but that ended with Jacob. Eph. 2:8, Now, Grace was a part of the mystery that God with held from the finishing of His Works, Heb. 4:3, until Christ, the full mystery of the Gospel was revealed to the Apostles during Pentecost and for the rest of their lives. Men, who preached the Gospel, preached that which the Apostles had revealed beforehand.

Eph. 3:3, when the Apostle said, “That by revelation there was made known to me the Mystery, as I wrote before in brief”. From this statement that Paul wrote, --- “As I wrote before in brief.” It seems that Paul had written this Church before in brief, which means that at that time all the Mystery was not revealed to him, or them. However, in this letter the Mystery is now revealed in full, Eph. 5:32 makes this known. Eph. 5:32, “This Mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the Church”. The Church of Christ was a great Mystery, Isa. 2:1-4. Since Paul was chosen from his mothers womb, Gal. 1:15, to establish Christianity in the Gentile nations, Acts 9:15, Paul then had a full load to carry, he had no time for entertainment, or ball games. Therefore, Paul was able to preach and that being recorded in the book of Acts, relates to us in Acts 20:28, in regards to the Messiah and the Church, he says, “He purchased the Church of God with His own blood”. If you go and purchase a new car, you pay cash for the car do you not want the title to that car in your name? But if one name in Christianity is as good as another then why not put the title for the car in my name. Surely if one church is as good as another, then on your title put my name on the title, where is the difference?         

Col. 1:27, “To whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this Mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”. If you go back to Col. 1:13-20, you will find in detail the interpretations of this passage, “All things were created by the Messiah and for the Messiah for he is THE head of THE body THE Church, He is the beginning”. This Mystery reveals the passion of the Messiah the terrible suffering, the shame he suffered, the horrible death, all because He Loved us, he became our Counselor, the prophesied Messiah, the government rested upon His shoulders, he would be our King in His Kingdom, and there would be no end to His Government, or of His Kingdom, Isa. 9:6-7.  If this part of the Mystery was fulfilled, then the other Mysteries, which describes other parts of the Gospel of the Messiah is also fulfilled. What was left to be fulfilled? Answer in the second paragraph below.  

{Give attention to this statement}, Most Christians are unaware that the New Testament describes the events of Fulfilled prophecy as IMMINENT events that were to occur before the generation of Christ’s Apostles passed away. The majority of Christian teachers today rarely explains or even mentions these events in their Sermons or Bible classes, and if members of the audiences brings up for discussions these events; they are branded as HERETICS. This is sad; but the people themselves are responsible for allowing such policy to exist. The Church cannot exist without people; people have a pressing need to speak out.

“WHAT IS LEFT TO BE FULFILLED?”

Question: Who outside the New Testament promoted fulfilled prophecy?

Do we have documentation of saints during the first century, or soon thereafter of saints who experienced the Redemption, the Resurrection, and the judgment of the Prince of this World, A.D. 70 fulfillment of Christ’s return, and when God’s revelation of Himself was finished?

Athanasius, the Great defender of Christian Orthodoxy {A.D. 296-373}, did not live in the first century but in his teachings as an Elder of several different Churches, from Egypt to the North, and were persecuted by the Jews for teaching fulfilled prophecy, and was imprisoned on several occasions for holding to the teaching of the Apostles, as soon as he was released from one prison, he began teaching for another Church away from his enemies; but they would follow him. “For now that He has come to our realm, and taken up His abode in one body among peers, henceforth the whole conspiracy of the enemy against mankind is checked, and THE CORRUPTION OF DEATH WHICH BEFORE WAS PREVALING AGAINST THEM IS DONE AWAY”. {Athanasius On the Incarnation of the Word, Section 9 Verse 4; cf. 1 Cor. 15:21-26}.

Athanasius, “Perhaps with regard to the other {prophecies} {the Jews} may be able even to find excuses and put off what is written to a future time. But what can they say to Daniel’s 70 weeks, or can they face it at all? Where not only the Christ referred to, but He that is to be anointed is declared to be not man simply, but Holy of Holies; and Jerusalem IS TO STAND TILL HIS COMING, AND THENCEFORTH, PROPHETS AND VISION CEASE IN ISRAEL. {Anthanasius on the Incarnation of the Word, section 39 Verse 3; cf Dan. 9:24 ff}.

“And this was why Jerusalem stood till then, namely, that there they might be exercised in the types as a preparation for the reality. FROM THAT TIME FORTH ALL PROPHECY IS SEALED and the city and temple taken…  Why are {the Jews} so irreligious and perverse as to see what happened, and yet to DENY CHRIST, who has brought it all to pass? … WHAT THEN HAS NOT COME TO PASS, WHICH THE CHRIST MUST DO? WHAT? And what is left UNFULFILLED? That the Jews should now disbelieve with impunity? {Anthanasius, On the Incarnation of the Word, section 40 verses 1-8}.

“THE DEVIL, THAT TYRANT AGAINST THE WHOLE WORLD IS SLAIN…NO MORE DOES DEATH REIGN, Heb. 2:14, 2 Tim. 1:10… {Anthanasius, the Festal Letters, Letter IV. No. 3, 4.}

“He has raised us from the dead; having abolished death, He has brought Life, and says WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY, O DEATH? WHERE IS YOUR STING?”

{Athanasius the Festal letters, Letter VI. No 9-12}. “What is left to be fulfilled”?

It will serve as a good education to any seeker of the truth to read the book of Barnabus, the companion of Paul. ---- Also the early Church fathers. ---- The writings of Constantine the Emperor of Rome in the Third Century before he became a Christian and until his death. ----Also Philo of Egypt.

Col. 4:3, “Praying at the same time for us as well, that God may open to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the Mystery of the Messiah for which I have been imprisoned”. Here Paul speaks of being imprisoned, indeed he served at least two prison terms, he killed no one; but because of teaching the Mysteries of the Messiah the Jews accused Him of teaching falsely.

# 1. The Apostle willingly went to the prison at Rome, while in prison he taught the Mystery, the Gospel of the Messiah he converted many of the guards who watched over him. Many people heard of this great teacher; they came to Paul to hear the Mystery revealed to the saints, they were converted to the Messiah.

# 2. If the Mystery has not been revealed how then could the Apostle teach something that had never been revealed? The Holy Spirit not the Apostles revealed the Mystery of Israel, their destruction, the exact time when the Covenant would be taken from Israel and Given to the Gentiles, Gen. 49:10; Zech. 14:1-5; Luke 21:1-32, especially verses 20, and 22; Matt. 24:1-34, The Messiah Reveals the end time for Israel, not the end of the world, the time when the Messiah would give His Kingdom to a nation that would bear fruit of it, Matt. 21:43. Luke 21:20-32.

In the love chapter of 1 Cor. 13:2, the Apostle says, “And if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all Mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing”.

Matt. 13:11, 34, 35, the Messiah speaks to His Disciples and says, “And He answered and said to them to you it has been granted to know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it has not been granted”.

# 1. Something interesting about this statement. Notice here that the Messiah at the beginning of His ministry he told the Disciples, who would later become the Apostles; you have been granted to know the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven. All I can say my friends and brethren, if you are not yet convinced that the Mysteries of the Old Testament prophecy has not been in the first century completed and fulfilled. Then I cannot judge you as you tend to judge me, and its funny you judge the truth wrongly; but besides all that I would pray that God would allow me to standby while you are being upon your knees, pleading with God. I can hear you; Father I know that I done my best, I did not study certain things in the Bible because being an Elder there were certain things that we the Elders took advice from the preacher who said that we do not want to teach things like fulfilled prophecy, our attendance will drop, and we cannot control the contributions, we must have something to create fear in the Church, scare tactics causes people to give more, Lord I have been a good Elder even in my old age, and even after I Could not recognize the people of the Church, I cannot call their names; But I am an Elder until death.---- And I will perhaps hear the Lord say, “you have not taught the things of God”, turn away from me, you who work inequity, I never knew you! This is sad, but nevertheless TRUE. And not only Elders, but also it scares me because I also may be waiting in that line.

When the Scriptures speaks in regards to fearing God, this is also a mystery, the kind of fear that God speaks of has been revealed. This is one of the reasons given when we should fear, fear is these last few seconds, when our whole life comes to view, and that whole life revealed in Heb. 10:27. The Messiah said in Matt. 5:20, “unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven”. This is what the Kingdom of Heaven is all about; making sure that we have Believed in, and practiced the things of God, and how can we know unless we Study God’s Word 2 Tim. 2:15.

1 Tim. 3:9, “But holding to the Mystery of the Faith with a clear conscience.

Some one says, but there is no mystery about faith!

# 1. First I beg to differ, because our salvation hinges on faith and grace.

# 2. Take inventory of your belief, and honestly write 2 pages on your faith.

#. 3. How much do you know about the faith and Belief of Abraham? Without studying his life in Genesis chapter 12 and forward?

# 4. What the Apostle has reference to here is, that there was hidden rules of faith that was not known by the ancient people, this mystery was hidden from the Rejection of Adam and Eve, until the Messiah and the Apostles. However, since the Gospel was preached to Abraham, that Gospel included the articles of Faith, Abraham showed his faith after God spoke to him and informed him to get himself out of his fathers house, and go to a place where I will show you, Abraham did not question, he arose got his family and servants together, along with his herd of animals, not knowing where he was going; but his faith was sufficient. I suggest that the mystery of this faith has been revealed in words and examples, the apostle Paul is one of the examples, 1 Cor. 11:1. “Imitate me as I have imitated Christ.” Read the life of Abraham beginning in Gen. Chapter 12. See Paul’s pattern.

# 5. There is in this Mystery an important element that is proven by this Mystery in 1 Tim. 3:9, Belief and faith goes together, you cannot separate one from the other, therefore, for the sake of Believing the things of God 1 Cor. 2:14, we must also have faith sufficient that we accept the things of God, without question as to their truthfulness. Therefore, this passage in question directly connects us to the following.

# 6. Eph. 1:7, “In Him we have REDEMPTION through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His Grace”.

First, do we have faith, and belief in what is said above? If so lets test that faith and belief, because this pertains to the things of God, and it was a Mystery that has in the first century been revealed, Eph. 3:3,”That by revelation there was made known to me the Mystery”. Col. 1:26, “This is, the Mystery which has been

{Past tense} hidden from the past ages and generations, but NOW has been MANIFESTED to His saints.” When we think of Redemption, we should think of the price that the Messiah paid in order to Redeem those spirits from Adam to the cross, an then there are those from the cross until this day; they have been redeemed, the Messiah paid the price, and looked down at the people and said Father forgive them, for they know not what they do, Luke 23:34.

NOW, these verses shows beyond doubt that the Mystery was revealed in the first century, and was finished, completed, and fulfilled all the Old Testament prophecies….  So now the test….  You believe in the Redemption, do you know what REDEMPTION really encompasses? Let me give you an example and see if you BELIEVE. Redemption according to Scripture began in Heb. 2:14, “Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death that is, the Devil.” The Mystery of Gen. 3:15 is here revealed.

Since the rejection of the things of God by Adam and Eve, the Devil, Satan, the serpent, was given power by God to hold the departed spirits in the Hadean world, which was the residence of Satan also, these departed spirits were divided into two groups, one group was the Righteous, the other group was the wicked, there was a great gulf between the two, see Luke chapter 16 for details. Satan required the life and blood of Jesus Christ before he would release the departed spirits that was the ransom price; the purpose of the death of Christ, and the way in, which he took on death, was demanded by Satan. So when you read Heb. 2:14, you find that the Messiah paid the price to destroy the power given to Satan, so now Satan can no longer hold the departed Spirits, when he was destroyed, the departed spirits that was REDEEMED by the blood of the Messiah was set free, that is what Redemption means, being set free from bondage.

So now we have shown you an actual Redemption that took place at the death of the Messiah. But we have a problem, do you believe what you have read in Heb. 2:14? This is one of the works of God that is spoken of in 1 Cor. 2:14. NOW we have another problem, you cannot have a mass Redemption without having a RESURRECTION. Now we really have a big problem, all the Scripture that I have shown you have proven that the Mystery of the prophets and their prophecies, that they were manifested in the first century, then they were also fulfilled.

So do you BELIEVE that a Resurrection has already took place? If you BELIEVE “the things of God”, then I have shown that all the Mysteries of God has already been manifested to the saints, and have been fulfilled.

Now in the event that I have not fully convinced you of these matters, look with me at Hosea 6:1-3, Hosea is saying that there will be a resurrection on the third day, which was the third day of the Messiah’s death, that is on the day of His resurrection there would be a mass resurrection. So you don’t BELIEVE that, then look at the Scriptures in Matt. 27:50-53, here you have the resurrection of the Messiah and after His resurrection, the graves were opened, and many of the saints coming out of the tombs after His resurrection entered the holy city and appeared to many. You BELIEVE this because you do not want to commit blasphemy. NOW the Apostle speaks of another resurrection, 1 Cor. 15:12-23, and says in verses 12 and 13, “Now if Christ is preached, that he has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection. V—13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised”.

NOW, there was a REDEMPTION, we all BELIEVE that, but we do not all believe that it has already took place, men who do not teach that “the things of God”, teach that it is yet future, yet I have shown you where God said through the Holy Spirit and the Apostle Paul, that the Mystery which was the Manifestation, or the revealing of the Mystery, that when it was manifested to the saints, Col. 1:26, then it was Fulfilled. So a part of the resurrection was accomplished when the Messiah was resurrected. See Rev. 14:1-5 for further details of this resurrection. Then we are told by inspired source, the Apostle Paul in 1 Cor. 15:12-23, that when the Messiah came back that He would receive those who was not resurrected in Matt. 27:50-53, so this one is connected with 1 Cor. 15:23 “at His coming”. Now if you BELIEVE that all the Mystery of the Gospel, of which the prophets spoke of was as the Bible clearly shows through the Mysteries that all the Mysteries were fulfilled in the first century, then you are a correct BELIEVER in the things of God.

We started this discussion with a Spiritual man named Daniel, and Daniel dealing with revealing a Mystery, this man also gave a commentary on the book of revelation, and in his last chapter he asked the angel for an interpretation of these events, Dan. 12:6-7, “when the power of the holy people would be destroyed all these events will be completed”. Now from Daniel Chapter 7 to the last verse of Chapter 12 Daniel is foretelling the destruction of Israel, and when Israel was destroyed all these events were completed, fulfilled. So since Daniel talks about the same destruction we will look at Rom. 16:25, we will look at “One who is able to establish you according to my Gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the Revelation of the Mystery which has been [PAST TENSE} kept secret for long ages past”. If you Believe God as Abraham did, this one is able to establish you in truth. Rom. 11:25, it is worthwhile to say that the first two chapters of Romans that Paul gave his introduction, and then followed with events that existed then. Chapters 3—16 deals with the Mystery mentioned in 16:25.

Now we look to the Revelation given to John. Rev. 10:7, “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, then the MYSTERY of God is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets”. Now you may have read this passage a dozen times; but have you taken the time to take your dictionary or a Greek dictionary and look up the word “ABOUT”, you will find that the word denotes something in the process of taking place immediately, this word has the same meaning as Rev. 1:1-3, V 1, “The things which must shortly take place, V 3, “Heed the things which are written in it for the time is at hand”.

# 1. These statements concur with the time table that we saw in Dan, 12:6-7, also Matt. 24:1-34, Where the destruction of Israel is carefully laid out, verse by verse, and then Jesus closes this discourse in verse 34, where He says, “Truly I say to you, this GENERATION will not pass away until all these things take place”. Common sense tells you that Jesus meant the generation that He lived in, not generation’s 2,000 years future that does not make sense to say He meant the generation of 2008!

# 2. The statements made by Daniel and John Concur with Luke 21:1-32, where Luke lays out the destruction of Israel, and Jesus even says, “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her destruction is at hand”. {Is at hand here means the same thing as it means in Rev. 1:3, something in progress of happening}? So then the Angel in Rev. 10:7 is referring to the destruction of Israel, all the prophets foretold this event. So Then why does so many people preach and teach that Jesus is coming back the “second time”, and of all that He will accomplish for the Jews, He will re-build Jerusalem, He will re-build the Temple, He will restore the Jews to their original land, HOG__WASH.

The Holy Spirit said in Isaiah 25:1-3, that it would never be re-built. Now listen to this and read it, Eph. 2:8-16, Jesus has made the Jews and the Gentiles into one Spiritual nation. Do you really believe that God is going to change His plan in order for men who do not preach “the things of God” to accommodate their crooked and forbidden gospel. The case in point is found in Gal. 1:6-9, read that some time.

# 3. Rev. 16:17, “And the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air; and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne saying, “it is done”. “It is done”. Is an important phrase that needs our honest and truthful consideration? Why is this so important?

# 4. First, if we read the whole chapter, we will find one verse that stands out as being the center of attention. Verse 15, “Behold I am coming like a thief in the night, Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his garments, lest he walk about naked and men will see his shame”. “Behold I am Coming”, this was the time set by God for the Messiah to return to planet Earth to complete the fulfillment of all prophecy, and to see to it that Israel was destroyed as was foretold by the holy Prophets. In Zechariah 14:1-5, which is the time that Rev, 16:15, has reference too, we see the return of the Messiah as he stands on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem V—4, We also see the description of destruction in regards to Jerusalem in Luke Chapter 21, especially in verses 20-32. But in reference to Rev. 16:17, Matthew gives a date as to when the Messiah would come to oversee the destruction of Jerusalem, to ratify the Spiritual Covenant, making it Reality rather by promise, and taking His Bride the Church, Rev. 19:7, Rev. 21:2. Matt. 24: 29-34 describes the signs, which will accompany His coming and verse 34 informs us that it would be in His generation.

# 5. This misconception of the “second coming” was started by the Roman Catholic Church about the 10th century when they began to add on to what they call St Peters Church; they wanted a huge building lined with gold, in order to accomplish this they began teaching that Christ was Coming soon, and they had to have a temple for him; they appealed to the people in the way of threats, people that they controlled by their armies, through the fear of death, the people responded. Later the Roman Catholic Church decided on a greater building project, and knowing that the people under fear of death would respond, so this time they sold indulgences, that is, the people could buy the right to sin, and still they were using the “second coming” to put fear into the hearts of people.

Then the same Church became so powerful that they could pray the peoples relatives out of hell, or, purgatory for a price, and they continue to this day to teach the “second coming”, of the Messiah so the people that came out of the Roman Catholic Church to start the reformation movement in the 15th century, knew about the coming of the Messiah because the Catholic Church kept the Bible chained to the pulpit, only the Priest had access to the Bible, and so as they established churches, they also taught the “second coming”. As did the Roman Catholic Church. 

# 6. Preachers and leaders of Churches for the last two hundred years, during the reformation movement, and afterwards, have taught the “second coming’, as being yet future, it has become a doctrine; they have predicted—how many times? That the Messiah would return on a certain day, and all their predictions have failed. Why? Because His coming was foretold by the prophets, and all prophecies have been fulfilled, when it is made known that these Mysteries have been manifested to the saints----that’s it folks.

I close my discussion by saying, study your Bible, and practice the things of God, not men, 1 Cor. 2:14. 

          OBSERVATIONS:

I think perhaps, that as I observe the whole lesson, Eph. 2:11-16, is an observation most needed to be discussed further. I know that the question will arise, why does it need to be discussed, we know that the Jews is God’s chosen people! ----Such question or answer is the very reason that Eph. 2:11-16 should be discussed.

Reason # 1. The people of the world has been so euphonized, with false teaching in regards to the Jews still being God’s chosen people, that some people would kill you over disagreement of this issue, some would take food and clothing from their children to give it to Agency’s which handles welfare for the Jews in Jerusalem, while our Government is sending Billions of dollars in foreign aide, as well as the most modern War equipment. The fact is the preachers, teachers and Churches, which is begging you for your last dollar, is simply scamming you, stealing for a warring nation, to whom God has forsaken. Wake up WORLD---This is the biggest International Scam the world has ever known. For any hungry person I would give my last meal.

Reason # 2. There is no Scripture in the Old Testament, or in the New that clearly informs us that the Jews is still God’s Chosen people, it is only there because you have been Mesmerized all your life, that’s all you hear, the poor old Jews. You best begin to think about poor old self.

Reason # 3. For the facts please turn to the Old Testament in Deuteronomy Chapter 28, if you notice God has sworn an oath, Deut. 29:10-15, here is the promise and the Oath of God. Now I want you to consider that this promise and Oath is conditional, ----- YOU ----- know what that means. ---- WELL chapter 28 will tell you just how conditional this chosen covenant and Oath went.

Notice Deut. 28:1-14, notice and consider what the first verse says, -- “Now it shall be, if you will diligently obey the Lord your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth”

Now go ahead and read through verse 14. Now here is where the sad part comes in, Deut. 28:15-48, read the first verse, this is the beginning of demise, and that because of sin. “But it”, “shall come about, if you will not obey the Lord your God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I charge you today, that all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you”. Now go ahead and read to verse 47. Have you ever read curses of this kind, which has been brought upon the people? Well you have not read anything yet. Now read Deut. 28: 49 through 66, look at verse 49, “The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as the eagle swoops down, a nation whose language you shall not understand”. ----- This nation was Rome whom God prepared to come against this sinful people, that He had given up on, and turned His back upon them, because they would not obey Him, He gave up His chosen people the Jews, and through the blood of Christ made one people out of them and the Gentile and reconciled them both to God as ONE, Eph. 2:8-16.

Rome did not come against this people without God’s approval.

Germany did not come against the Jews in 1940 without God’s approval.

          Remember the curse that God put on this people until they were destroyed.

Reason # 4. I plead with you the reader to study the book of Deuteronomy, the book of Isaiah the book of Joel. This purpose is for you to see how that God blessed the nation of Israel when they purposed in their hearts to serve God on His terms; they were blessed; they prospered. But when they turned from God in disobedience, see how the nation suffered. Now you can see why the world is in a Depression, and how that people of the world today is suffering, simply because we have left God, and just as He done to Israel, He has done to us, He has turned His back on sin. There is no more Israel. The Messiah died and His blood brought all people to God as one Eph. 2:8-16.

No human on earth today has the power to look into the hearts of his fellowman and ascertain the man’s true motives. We are called upon by God to think the best, believe the best and hope the best about each other, 1 Cor. 13:7. My sole desire is to ascertain God’s Truth on matters that will affect our eternal destiny. This is serious business. And the matter of how to worship God has eternal consequences----Souls are at stake.

Since God admonishes every accountable person to be a sincere seeker of Truth, Prov. 23:23, John 7:17, genuine Christians should have no hesitation in examining contrary viewpoints, My prayer is that those will be willing to give their contrary viewpoint if you have one, an honest hearing, with humility, and Prayer.

2 Tim. 2:15, “study to show thyself approved by God, rightly handling the Words of truth”. ----- CAN ANYONE HERE TODAY TELL THE TRUTH AND SAY I AM APPROVED BY GOD????

It has not been my intention to violate your right to hold, or teach another Gospel, Gal. 1:6-9, you have that right and choice. God is your Judge, God is my Judge, and I ask that you not CASTIGATE me for speaking what I know to be the truth.
