Now all these things
happened unto them for ensamples:
In the Gospels "FOR" Us?
and they are written for
our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
I Corinthians 10:11
whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Remember, the Gospels are still in the Old Testament
Gospels are not TO us!
However, there is plenty within the Gospels FOR us!
from the Gospels that are misapplied today!
Gospel of John
this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2: Now there
is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew
tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3: In these
lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting
for the moving of the water.
4: For an
angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water:
whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made
whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5: And a
certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case,
he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7: The impotent
man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put
me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9: And immediately
the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same
day was the sabbath.
the 'brethren' today don't seem happy when we know the living God through
the risen Christ is working in the lives of people - through the King James
Bible and rightly dividing through Paul, etc.
Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, It is the sabbath day: it
is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
11: He answered
them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and
asked they him, What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed,
he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself
away, a multitude being in that place.
no more?" or something worse will happen to you?
Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made
whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
Today, if we sin
'again,' what will happen to us?
Ask a modern Great
Commission pastor; any other Ricky Warren, Alpha, Journey groups or any
non-dividing non-KJB preacher.
They will all
be teaching from the Gospels, the Tribulation books and/or the Old Testament
the Gospels still are considered to be...)
Soul winning emphasis

You must actually
No life changes
based on anything Paul wrote, though.
3:13 - But evil men and seducers shall
wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
Our doctrine from
the Risen Christ to Paul shows that Christ took care of our sin - all of
them - and will not impute the ones we do from that moment on!
We do not need
to fear the command 'sin no more' because there is no law to a sincere
Christian to prove it is sin.
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
- (For until the law was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there
is no law.
trail - note when the concluding parenthesis shows up again
10:23 - All things are lawful for me, but
all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things
resulting from 'doing right.'
man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because
he had done these things on the sabbath day.
from serving the living God - the Risen Saviour!
I Timothy 4:10
- For therefore we both labour and
suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour
of all men, specially of those that believe.
4:17 - For our light affliction, which
is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight
1:8 - Be not thou therefore ashamed of
the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker
of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
3:12 - Yea, and all that will live godly
in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
complaint - Making himself equal with God!
Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the
sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with
This is similar
to us saying about the KJB:
... that "If
the reader could take this book, the KJB, and turn it into a flesh and
blood person, he would have Jesus Christ in his hand. If one could
take Jesus Christ and turn him into words, he would have the King James
Bible in his hand!"
... that I
Corinthians 13:10 is the King James
Bible, not the second coming Christ!
... that it
is the King James Bible that is to be rightly divided and magnified even
above his name - Psalm 138:2
King James Bible is the mouth of God today!
of Greek and Hebrew is worthless!
to us through the King James Bible!
judge our works on the King James Bible through Paul's ways and teachings!
People just can't
stand to hear those types of things!
Christ will be the final judge!
answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The
Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what
things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth:
and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son
quickeneth whom he will.
the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
And see verse
27 below: and hath given him authority
to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
But also do remember
- Christ will be using His risen teachings through Paul's gospel, not his
gospel to the Jews then - and in the Millennium.
- In the day when God shall judge the secrets
of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
- Now to him that is of power to stablish
you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according
to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world
4:17 - For this cause have I sent unto
you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall
bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every
where in every church.
during the Gospel times was different than ours is today!
all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that
honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
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.
that they had to believe Jesus Christ was the Messiah and/or the Son of
8:37; Matthew 16:16, etc.
'Now is" meaning today?
could this be referring to when Jesus dies and goes to Paradise to bring
back the righteous ones?
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.
as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have
life in himself;
hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son
not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves
shall hear his voice,
How could this
be the White Throne Judgment, as some preach?
The hour is coming,
and NOW IS...
shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection
of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of
You can see that
then it was still based on works, eh!
'done good' and
'done evil' are talking about works.
Judgment will stand because it still isn't His own will.
witness doesn't convince people He is who He was, is and will be.
30: I can
of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just;
because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath
31: If I
bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
One - John
Two - the works
that Jesus did of which the Father gave him!
is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which
he witnesseth of me is true.
33: Ye sent
unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.
I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might
35: He was
a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice
in his light.
Three - The Father Himself!
I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father
hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me,
that the Father hath sent me.
The will of the
Father - see 6:39,40
1:12,13 for Paul's continued work of the
Father's will as given to Jesus who then passed it onto Paul.
Four - The Scriptures
the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have
neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe
the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are
they which testify of me.
2:15 - Study to shew thyself approved unto
God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word
3:16 - All scripture is given by inspiration
of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for
instruction in righteousness:
2:13 - For this cause also thank
we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which
ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in
truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
through the Scriptures
ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
Rings True Today!
ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
41: I receive
not honour from men.
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.
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.
had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
They didn't, they
don't and they won't!
Some still do
try believe and follow Moses!
Some still do
try to believe Jesus and follow Jesus!
But most won't
believe the King James Bible, no matter what the facts are!
And just about
everyone won't even consider what Paul has to say about the Risen Christ!
