Unto the Church of God and all who are called to be saints of Christ: All Hail: Is it well with thee?: I am well in the hope that is Jesus Christ. May the Almighty God and His Son Christ Jesus heal and comfort the sick and shut-in: and may we all be blessed with the glory of their presence.
Beloved children of the Most High: I Cornelius, your friend and brethren in the stress and anxiety that befalls our labor for the gospel of Christ, cannot endure this hardship without the hope that is God. For though the armor of God protects me from the onslaught of thorns and thistles, I can still feel their sting upon my flesh, because nothing can precede what the flesh feel. Moreover, the armor of God is not worn to protect the flesh; but the spirit of the flesh. Let the flesh be dead: for the hope of flesh seek an unacceptable sacrifice.
My brothers and sisters in the true name of Jesus Christ: I am an upright man: a faithful and holy man: whose suffering is only the beginning of things to come. Indeed, I, even I, am in training as an existence of flesh, that I might build up my hope, that my faith be increased. For without the stamina of hope, I cannot find the faith to endure. Though I am steadfast and un-moveable in Christ, I still suffer the natural feelings of flesh, which bring forth the thoughts to faint in the time of trouble, and to quit in the hour of scorn. But with hope, I eat not of those thoughts, but press on until the next day, when the Lord shall send me an angel to increase my faith. But without hope, I would be as the fool, who does not wait for tomorrow, but lives for today. Whosoever lives for today is dead of the spirit: but he that lives for tomorrow is dead of the flesh but alive in the spirit. And if you are alive in the spirit, then you are resurrected to life in Christ. But if you are dead of spirit, then you are resurrected to damnation. Where are you in the hope of your resurrection? I pray you are in the light that is Israel: for only in the light of Israel can a soul be saved. For how can any man be saved outside the body of Christ when Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever? So if Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), his priesthood is unchangeable (Hebrews 7:24): thus salvation is still of the Jews(St. John 4:22). For through the salvation of the Jews do all others obtain salvation. I speak these words not to offend the religions of men; but to defend the doctrine of Christ. The world has been led astray: for if Christ is a Jew and his body is the church, what then is his doctrine? Let the truth be known that no man might have an excuse: for the message shall be heard in all nations, even in the most remote of places. For you saw how they traveled over all the world showing on television the many different ways the world celebrated the year 2000; even showing the heathens of remote islands. Surely if even the heathens in remote places knew that a new year was beginning in accordance with the Gentile calendar, so shall they also know that Christ has risen, and sent forth his messenger.
I beseech no man to believe my testimony: for he who is to believe shall believe the voice of truth. I need no man to believe that I am without sin since the beginning of my ministry, which began on the thirty-first day of the third month of the Gentile calendar in the year 2001. For God be my witness: and His eyes are upon me. If there be any man, or woman, or child, that can testify as a witness, that I have committed a sin before the eyes of God, let them come forth and give their testimony. And I pray for their sake, that they be an eyewitness and not a repeater of what was told to them, or what they heard, or a liar: for such is a false witness: and what be the fate of a false witness?
Beloved men of Israel: I nor we exalt ourselves: for the Spirit of Truth, which is the Holy Ghost, has exalted us. Let us take our place in the heavenly calling, which for some is to listen and obey, and for others to listen and preach. Men say I have exalted myself: but how can a man exalt himself when his testimony is the gospel of Christ? In the hope that is Jesus Christ, I stand before you all, boasting not, but in the confidence of my knowledge in Christ; to tell every man who give an ear, that none might enter into my website unaware: I am he that is called with the Lambs book of life as it is so written in the book of Revelation. I am to some a great man; but to most a lost soul. I am not Jesus Christ as you know him: but a sacrificial lamb of the tribe of Judah. And the blood I offer up in the hope of God for the kingdom that is God, I offer up in the true name of Jesus Christ. For in Christ blood do I live: and in his blood I can find no death but life everlasting. So the death that is given to me in this world is to a flesh that is dead already: for in this world I am dead of flesh but alive by the Spirit of Christ which dwells in me. If I live by my flesh, then I am a transgressor of the law, because I am subject to the sins of flesh. But if I live by the Spirit of Christ that is in me, then I am born of God, and cannot sin before the eyes of God, because no unrighteousness is in me. The men who sin live by their flesh, which is to eat the thoughts of flesh, which manifest those thoughts into action, which gives birth to sinful flesh, which is to lust and transgress the way of God. You cannot be in the body of Christ halfway: you must either serve God or the devil. If you serve anything belonging of the flesh, you have served the devil. So stop indulging in coition outside of marriage. Stop conceiving bastards into the world. Stop showing the nakedness of your body to one that is not your husband or your wife. Stop the envy and jealousy. Stop being stubborn and hardheaded. Stop lying, and stealing, and raping, and murdering, and conniving. Stop living the life of flesh, which in the end is foolishness. For if we are true in Christ, then we repent of our wrong doings, to make ourselves holy unto the Lord, that when he appear, we might be like him. For a great woe shall be unto those that do not appear as him when he come in the glory of the Son of man. So my brethren: live not for actuality, but for reality, which is the future as well as the past and present. Live not for today, but for tomorrow, in the hope that is God Almighty. Stand in the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers: unto the promise of the twelve tribes of Israel in the book of Revelation. Stand in the hope that is Christ: unto the promise of eternal life for all men. For what is the death we might receive for the gospel of Christ in this world, but a death that we might live with Christ in the world to come. In this hope do we live and pray that all men be of this hope: for by hope is faith manifested.
Now let us open our Holy Bibles this Sabbath to Romans 8:10-28: and let us Read slowly that we might Hear the words we read: And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
So children: Have we received the adoption? I answer it not; but let the Holy Scriptures be the answer:
Galatians 4:4-7: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Beloved holy apostles: You who partake of this heavenly calling to take your place as the head of the twelve tribes of Israel in this hour of the regeneration: and to the beloved disciples of truth whose purpose is to teach the Gentiles the way of the Lord: I leave you with these words, which are not my own, but those of the Holy Scriptures:
Ephesians 1:3-23: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence: Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers, That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power. Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
Even as I am called in the purpose to gather the twelve that a spiritual and social revolution in the true name of Jesus Christ be ignited: you who be among the twelve are called to your purpose to lead a tribe of Israel. And if you are called are you not then found worthy in the eyes of God through the searching of your heart? But what keeps a worthy man from answering his calling, but the weakness of his flesh, which he has kept alive by eating of its thoughts. For unless a man live by the Spirit only, he cannot humble himself to accept correction, neither submit himself to one of authority over him, nor have the eyes of his understanding enlightened. There are many in Israel who are worthy to be called; so they are called: but the twelve answer their calling without hesitation; because they are of predestination according to the purpose of Gods will whose will has sent me to gather them. So when they hear me, they come, neglecting their own understanding for Gods. And though they were born of flesh as ordinary men, they are not: for their vision is from God: and their knowledge from Christ himself. And unlike the apostles of old, they are without doubt, and without denial: for given unto them in the regeneration is the whole Spirit of Christ.
So if we be in the Spirit of Christ, then are we not of his holy priesthood? And if we are ministers of his holy priesthood, then are we not led by the Spirit of Truth? And if we are led by the Spirit of Truth, what then is our teachings in this world, but a spiritual and social revolution in the true name of Jesus Christ? For the knowledge of Christ from the mouths of the Gentiles, who are the governors of this world, is lies and misunderstanding; even paganism in disguise. So is our testimony not a revolution when it speaks against the things of Christianity? We come sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, with one as the Lamb and twelve as apostles: what man can teach us the way of Christ? What man can bring us the understanding of his word, when we are given the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of him?
Beloved: There are many men upon all the earth speaking with intelligent words; sounding like wise and devoted men; but are misled and confused. These things they say of us: so be it: But we dwell in the hope that is God with the knowledge of the truth. And with these words I leave you all this Sabbath in the hope that is written in I John 3:1-3: BEHOLD, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. Every man that keep that hope is purified as Christ is pure: so we are not exalted of our own will, but by the Spirit that is Truth in us, which is the mind of Christ. For how can a man have the mind of Christ and not be exalted? Indeed my brethren: we are joint-heirs with Christ as it is so written.
I pray you take your time and read every word of this sermon in patience and understanding, that every word you read is heard and retained. The Holy One of Israel is in this place: for the Love and Truth of Jesus Christ is our sanctuary. And let the people say, Amen. And let one say, So be it.
