all these things happened unto them for ensamples:
In the Gospels "FOR" Us?
they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are
whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
the Gospels are still in the Old Testament doctrinally!
are not TO us!
the Gospels showing all that is falsely applied today!
is still much within those Gospels FOR us!
Here is how To read the Gospels
for 'Paul-Following' Christians
Jesus is warning the Disciples about their own persecution
that was about to come - The Great Commission
and if accepted, right into the Tribulation - thus we
have all the Trib books (Hebrews to Jude)
AFTER Paul's books!
7 about the things he said about what
is coming causes them sorrow...)
8. And when he
is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of
No wonder there is sorrow and hatred towards that
"Reprove" - 1828 definition
blame expressed to the face
censure for a fault
to manifest a fault
to excite a sense of guilt
Modern definition - much more negative...
to speak severely to (someone) about a fault
It can't be a 'person' that is the source of reproving...
Who are you?
Galatians 6:1 -
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore
such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also
How about a preacher - parent, teacher, etc.
II Timothy 4:2 -
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke,
exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
I Thessalonians 5:12,13
- And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and
are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to esteem them very highly
in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
Reprove the works of darkness, not join up with them!
Ephesians 5:11 -
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather
What is the light? The KJB today!
Ephesians 5:13 -
But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever
doth make manifest is light.
Our soul is unreproveable, but not the flesh!
Colossians 1:22 -
In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable
and unreproveable in his sight:
Judgment Seat of Christ will judge our works!
9: Of sin, because they
believe not on me;
This reminds us of the purpose of the Law!
Galatians 3:23-25 -
But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith
which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster
to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after
that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Romans 7:6-9 -
What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known
sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said,
Thou shalt not covet. But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought
in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. For
I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived,
and I died.
The world today doesn't hear their need for Christ.
Judgment - based on truth and a Holy God!
Goodness of God based on the law, showing
His goodness of what He did on the cross and the importance of it all.
10: Of righteousness,
because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
He was "that" righteousness!
Romans 10:3 -
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish
their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness
II Timothy 3:16 -All
scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Instruction in the way of the Risen Christ - through
Paul's teachings to us!
11: Of judgment, because
the prince of this world is judged.
By Jesus Christ, but with Paul's gospel!
Romans 2:16 -
In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according
to my gospel.
12: I have yet many
things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
Will not endure sound doctrine!
II Timothy 4:3,4
Paul's doctrine, then the walk!
Build the foundation before the walls, etc.
I Corinthians 3:10 - According
to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I
have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man
take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
II Timothy 4:10 -
Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed
Grace, truth, mercy, longsuffering, patience, prayer,
tears, avoid, etc.; reject and send to the world!
13: Howbeit when he,
the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he
shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he
speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Will it be the (1) KJB, (2) preaching or (3) our
heart that will guide us into all truth?
KJB? - I Corinthians
13:10 - But when that which is perfect
is come, then that which is in part shall be done away... For now we see
through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but
then shall I know even as also I am known.
We can know that Book as well as we can know Paul!
The more we 'read' Paul and get to know him, we can
know the truth!
Read his life in Acts
Get to know not only his doctrine and deeds, we can
learn what he did - his affairs of life and manner of life!
Ephesians 6:21 - But
that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother
and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
II Timothy 3:10 - But
thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering,
1:3 - But
hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed
unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
Jeremiah 17:9 - The heart is deceitful
above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
It all comes down to the KJB; it has it all!
14: He shall glorify
me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
15: All things that the Father hath are
mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto
Is the 'shall
take of mine' referring to his teachings
in the gospels?
Pentecostals glorify the Spirit - or the Jesus
of the gospels - with their flesh!
American Christians glorify themselves and
what their magic Jesus will do for them, etc. and to their flesh!
That KJB tells us what the Gospel Jesus did on
the earth AND what the Risen Christ did to us and for us - AND then what
we can for him in return in our flesh.
