Studies

CUT OFF / BLOT OUT LESSON STUDY

INTRODUCTION: Before we start this afternoon’s study I am curious to take a poll on present belief then see if the information studied made any difference to you. 

To save time, I am going to show that being “saved” is the same as having one’s name in the “Book of Life”.  It is not a study on when or how one is saved, we have studied that before.  This is confined to when is one’s name written in the Book of Life.  Though scripture does say one is saved after enduring to the end Matt 24:13; Mark 13:13.          When one is saved, what are they saved from? Not mortal death as all suffer that Heb 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:.  We are saved from the eternal spiritual death, called the second death.  [Rev 2:11  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. Rev 20:14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Rev 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.  Rev 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire].

WHAT ARE YOU LIKE?

What is God like? The same question appears in the bible. Psa 89:6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD? Psa 89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. Psa 89:8 O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee? Psa 89:9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them. Isa 40:18 To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him? Isa 40:19 The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains. Isa 40:20 He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved. Isa 40:21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? Isa 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: Isa 40:25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Isa 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth. Isa 40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. Isa 40:29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Isa 40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isa 46:5 To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like? Isa 46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Isa 46:10 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: Isa 46:11 .. I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. Some of you may remember a saying when we were younger “what are you like”. Today, the youth use the phrase “it’s like..” a lot. They compare what they are talking about to something else rather than describe the actual thing.

WHAT KIND OF A PERSON ARE YOU?

The title of this study should more accurately be what non religious things can we personally learn from the feasts days of God. Or something along those lines. It is about asking and answering what type of person keeps them, what do they teach us about such people or what changes do they go through. If that description does not accurately cover the content, you can re-title or describe it as more appropriate to your view. God has seven annual holy days, commonly called Feast days and are listed in Lev 23. More accurately, they are called appointed times. Specific times God has set aside for His people to have holy convocations either as memorials of things He has done for them as a group or in recognition and acceptance He is their God as oppose to the other claims gods. The idea of this presentation came to me as I ran out unleaven bread one day before the 7 day period ended. I buy what is called the Jewish Matza biscuit type square unleaven bread that comes in box packs of about 14. I eat about 3 for breakfast as bread replacement. A box would be too many. Nevertheless I stopped off in the shop. The four foot high floor stack of them, I saw a few days earlier, at the far end of the shop had surprisingly gone. I searched and could not find the stack. That was a lot of biscuit to sell in a few days. Finally the staff directed me to some on a shelf. Well at least a lot of other people are apparently keeping the feast. Almost like Elisha in 1Ki 19:18 “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him”. Later that evening Joy texed to asked when is the last day of the feast. So what kind of a person are God’s feast day keepers or what behavioural characteristics does the feast teach us? Firstly, it is having the fear of God and from that gaining wisdom. Wisdom to perceive it is not about the money, inconvenience, surplus or waste being left over; but a desire to be obedient to God.

IS EVERYTHING BAD THAT HAPPENS TO US OF THE DEVIL?

Today's afternoon discussion is as titled. Below are some points for your groups to discuss. Q. In the Old Testament we do not read of the devil tempting people except with Adam and Eve; but we do read of offerings to devils. (Lev 17:7, Deu 32:17, 2Chron 11:15 Psa 106:37). Is there any significance to this? A. Israel was not deceived they chose to disobey the law they knew. Q. How is the devil described or his bad attributes? A. Mat 4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole Mat 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

MANIFESTATIONS OF GOD & the HOLY SPIRIT

Today we have a two for one offer. Two message for the price of one. That price is Nothing. Without price or money as Yahweh says in Isaiah 55. Now we all like a good story so I’m going to tell you a very good story. Some of it you may know and some not know; but it is a story or should I say account of history we all want to know. It is an account of how the human race got here. It is an account of the God of the heavens of which there are three as described in Genesis 1. The lower is the firmament in which the birds fly, the next is what we call space where the planets are based and the last is the heaven of the heavens where God resides. Scripture says It is His throne. We all know and I think accept the part of God in His magnificent, wisdom created our earth and us. Unfortunately His adversary created by God and working for Him, rebelled and wanted to be in command not, we are told, second in command as some do. And for his action he was cast down to below the first firmament our earth where we reside. And he is here causing havoc. Like a roaring lion seeking whom he can devour because he wants to ascend back up to the heaven of heavens and be as God and until then he wants to make himself our god. Worshipping him instead of our real creator Yahweh. So from the beginning of mankind, this has been his ploy. Starting with our fore parents Adam and Eve and he continues through Noah and all generations of the human race. Now the end of the story as is relevant to each one of us we can write. There are two possible destinations for us. We can either end up in a new heaven and earth prepared for us by Yahweh for those who show obedience to His way of life or the fiery pit reserved for the deceiver and those falling for his deceits. Now how do we write the end of this story as relevant to us?

MATTHEW

The Gospel According to MATTHEW
Matthew, whose name means "gift of Jehovah," left his occupation of gathering taxes (Matt. 9:9-13) in order to follow Jesus. In Luke 5:27-32, Matthew gave a banquet for Jesus before becoming one of the Twelve Apostles (Matt. 10:3). He was an eyewitness of Jesus' entire ministry.

The four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) form a unique kind of written document. They present four complementary views of the life of Jesus. Aside from these four Gospels, there are only a few writings in the contemporary historians, Josephus and Tacitus, which the life and activities

The Gospel According to MARK

The name Mark is actually a surname, his common name being John (Acts 12:12; 13:5; n, 4:11). Since he was related to Barnabas (Col. 4:10), Mark may have been a Levite (4:36) Mark travelled with the Apostle Paul and Barnabas on their first missionary journey (Acts 12:25), but he turned back (Acts 13:13). For this reason, Paul refused to consider taking him along on the second missionary journey (Acts 15:36 -39).  Paul and Barnabas had such a strong disagreement about the matter that they decided to go different directions, Paul with Silas and Barnabas with Mark. Later Paul and Mark were reconciled (Col. 4:10; Phile. 1:24), and Paul came to regard Mark as one who was "profitable . . for the ministry" (2 Tim. 4:11).

THE LAMENTATIONS of Jeremiah

Lamentations was originally part of the Book of Jeremiah. It was later isolated because it was read publicly at one of the feasts of Israel and included in the Five Megilloth (or scrolls; see introduction to the Book of Ruth). Lamentations is read each year at Tisha B'av, a fast commemorating the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem (2 Kgs. 25:8, 9) in both 586 B.C. and A.D. 70.  The style and content leave no doubt that Jeremiah, the "weeping prophet," is the author. The book focuses on the destruction of Jerusalem as observed by an eyewitness (cf Jer.37 -39) Jeremiah alternates between horrible accounts of the destruction of the city to the confessions of the people's deep sins, and then to his appeals to God for mercy.

GENESIS

The following are some points I suggest a reader should note when reading Genesis in order to understand it and the rest of the Bible. It is copied from notes made and hopefully, will be re-written when time permits.

The name "Genesis" comes from a Greek word meaning "beginning." This word was the title of the book in the Septuagint, the ancient Greek translation of the Old Testament. The Hebrew name for Genesis was 'b rë shith', "in the beginning." The Hebrews often identified the books of the Old Testament by the first word of the text. In this way when a scroll was unrolled they were able to tell immediately which book it contained.
