I think one of the things that I most detest in religion is that
mankind believes that they can define God. That mankind believes
that they can define God is the pinnacle of arrogance.....and the
antithesis of meek and humble. It is enough that God has defined me
and you. It is enough that God has provided a Sacrificial Lamb to
provide the method, and the focus, for my personal eternal journey of
self discovery within God. My life here on earth is just a beginning.
The best way to find out about The Lord, Jesus Christ
is to establish a relationship with Him and to read about Him in the
Scriptures. Below I have recorded some scriptures that reflect His

have that word or phrase will be brought to you.
|OPINION: I don't think we are to
consider too much on what Christ looked like....it is not
important....and should not be a point of division for
Believers. He did not come down for us to get fixed on His
looks....we are to get
fixed on His heart. There is not sin in having a picture
of Him, if we know the picture is not truly His image. Such is
not an idol. Some would say that kneeling before a cross to pray
would be kneeling before an Idol. Our Christ knows our hearts.
If our hearts are set on financial gain above all else...than our
hearts are set on idols....and so on. If our hearts are set on
Christ returning and establishing His Kingdom.....no matter what
happens to us in the process.....than our hearts are set on
Christ...and God's Will. Humans get so petty on issues that have
nothing to do with salvation...and love of God.
Christ is our Doorway, our
Lamb......in my eyes any who have Christ and look forward
with all their hearts to His return, or to what He has
promised, who want His Will not theirs, are Christians.
Mankind throughout the ages have fought and divided
the Believers over trying to define that which they
cannot understand, That which is so far above them
that they will not be able to understand it until
Christ, our King, Our Savior is once more with us
during the 1,000 year reign of the Millennium that I
hope is soon to come. Our King will then teach truth
for 1,000 years, not letting any man teach otherwise.
At the end of that time, Satan will be allowed to
interfere on earth again, and those who decide to
follow satan, will not do so because they were not
taught the truth.....but because their hearts are
aligned with the Dragon.....not Our Lord.
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put
confidence in man.
don't let any man of earth teach me, that includes the
Councils of Nicaea and those who proclaim to be
prophets after Christ ascended. The Holy Spirit was
given to all who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior,
and the Holy Spirit is a perfect teacher.....depending
on the openness, humbleness, meekness, teach ability
of the student. It
is so tiring hearing this or that church say that this
other church is false,.....wading through the heavy
doctrinal issues that man has applied to the path of
salvation....so you can be sure you are
aligned correctly? Nothing of man has meaning. We
are not to look towards man for our truths. Christ's
yoke is easy, and simple.
Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit......they
RULE! Understanding how that is, or not
understanding.....is not at all going to keep anyone
from salvation because our Savior is the Lamb, who
is Jesus Christ, Who said, Believe Upon Me. I do.
He can explain the relationship of the three in
person someday. It is not a salvation issue to
understand it accurately. Christ said, I am in the
Father, He is in Me, you will be in Me and I will be
in you. That is enough for me.
The words of Jesus' prayer (below) to the
Father apply to all of us who believed the words
that were taught to the Apostles by Christ. Jesus
was praying this before He was to be crucified. We
too will be one with them! I know Jesus told us to
pray to the Father, and do it in Jesus' name, via
the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Dragon uses
the various egos of man to divide what is so simple,
and such an easy yoke, as Christ, Himself said...."My
burden is light, my yoke is easy." Mankind struggles
with power and ego issues, turning many away.
There is much that is
confusing in the Bible..... that is what the Holy
Spirit has taught me, and many others too, that are
non-denominational, and even those that are within
all sorts of denominations who don't listen to man,
but to the Holy Spirit. Those who follow the Holy
Spirit and Christ first, above and beyond any church
prophets, or teachers of mankind are Christians.
All churches contain error, because all churches
contain mankind, and mankind, without the help of
the Holy Spirit and constant daily prayer is subject
to the whim of the Dragon.
"Lead us not
into temptation and deliver us from evil"
should be a daily prayer, because Christ knows that
we need daily protection until we are transfigured.
EVEN MORE OPINION:
God expects us to put all scripture
together into one harmonious story. If
you are devouring the word of God, when
you have almost completed the
meal......you will have the information
you need to figure things out. Christ,
Himself, said He speaks in parables, and
in such ways to keep the truth hidden from
the ways of the world, from those who are
busy in the world. The more we are in the
world and practice the ways of the world,
the more truths will be hidden from us,
which are right there for the finding.
But we have to be eager for the truth,
want it above all other things of the
These truths are not salvational, they are
a greater picture of Our Lord. Salvation
is recognizing our nature without Christ
asking Christ to be Our Lord
setting our egos aside so that He can
begin the process of changing our nature
via the HOLY SPIRIT that is our gift from
Our Lord, and accepting that He paid our
price on the cross with His earthly death,
so that we might have Eternal Life within
And, it was meant to be simple. But,
mankind, in the world, tries to make that
part which should be simple, complex,
adding all man's doctrine to the simple
truth of salvation. Causing division
within the Body. Thank God, that He has
the mercy and grace to overcome mankind's
IN JESUS'S OWN WORDS: (Below)
11:29-30 (Jesus speaking)
Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye
shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is
easy, and my burden is light.
Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him (Jesus) a question,
testing Him, and saying, "Teacher, which is the great
commandment in the law?"
Jesus said to him,"You
shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all
your soul, and with all your mind. This is the
first and great commandment. And the second is like it:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two
commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."
John 10:7 Then
said Jesus unto them again,
Verily, verily, I say unto
you, I am the
door of the sheep.
10:9 (Jesus speaking)
I am the door:
by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go
in and out, and find pasture.

transfigured spiritual bodies we will have been born

the Spirit is spirit.

where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst
not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one
that is born of the Spirit.
||9-Nicodemus answered and said unto him,
How can these things be?
||10-Jesus answered and said unto him,
Art thou a master of
Israel, and knowest not these things?
(Those in the time of Jesus and the Apostles were familiar
with,....were "masters" of the knowledge of Israel's history....
the Books that were not included in the Bible by the Councils of
Nicaea,..... including the Book of Enoch who lived in the time
In the Book of Enoch it is written that the
waters above the firmament is where God the
Father, Who is SPIRIT, resides, and these "waters" will never be
muddied. According to one of the
books that were not put in the Bible...I think it was the book of
Enoch... even the angels cannot go there where God the Father Eternal
resides. (Christ can, because He is the Only Begotten Son of the
Father, and is One with the Father!) The Angels can only go back and
forth from the separating "firmament" (the Heaven that separates the
waters above from
the waters below the firmament
)where they reside
to the waters below....our earth
realm...which includes our entire universe....where Jesus
Christ prepared our home and our bodies (our water birth) for our
Spirits to be placed within during our restoration process here on this
earth in these "waters" below the firmament.....where we have a chance
to set our "wills" aside to accept the Will of the Father through His
Son Jesus Christ...by believing and accepting Jesus Christ, and than
the Gift of the Holy Spirit (the beginning of our Spiritual birth.)
if they truly believe and are not taking the Lord's Name in
(Read the first
verses of Genesis...especial vs 6.)
The Angels reside in the Heaven/firmament that separates the two
"waters". This makes sense, because the
angels can become "fallen" just as man became "fallen".
1/3 of the Angels were seduced by satan and followed him. These are the same ones that will be coming to earth
in our near future. If they were "Spirit" they would be "in" The
Father, and would be perfect and incapable of falling. Perhaps
this is why 1/3 of the Angels followed the dragon when he became upset
about man's creation and God's
for our restoration?????
Which, when that hapens we will be in Christ as Christ is in the Father and the
Father is in Christ....and when next we see Him we will be like Him!)
Sounds like a
greater glory eventually than what was planned for the Angels!
verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify
that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye
believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
no man hath ascended up to
heaven, but he that came down
from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
(This "HEAVEN" differs from the one where
Enoch, Elijah, and possibly Moses were taken up to. They
were taken to the Heaven where the Angels were. Christ is
here telling His Apostles that no man has been to the Heaven
where the Father resides, accept Him, who. while talking to His
Apostles at this time was in the flesh as Son of Man.)
||14-And as Moses
lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of
man be lifted up:

loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have

world through him might be saved.
believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is
condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of
the only begotten Son of God.
|19-And this is
the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and
men loved darkness
rather than light,
because their deeds were evil.
|20-For every one
that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light,
lest his deeds should be reproved.
(Perhaps we could discern the good or evil
in our governing bodies by applying these words of Christ.
Think upon this....all that is kept in the dark within our
country today so the people will not know. If someone
strives to keep things "secret" and "hidden" they are following
the dark way.)

doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made

15, 16, 17, (Christ Speaking)
John 15: (Jesus Speaking)(4) Abide
in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot
bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in
the vine, neither can you, unless you
abide in Me. (5)I am the vine, you are
the branches. He who abides in Me, and
I in him, bears much fruit; for
without Me you can do nothing. (6) If
anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast
out as a branch and is withered; and they
gather them and throw them into the fire,
and they are burned. (7) If you abide in
Me, and My words abide in you, you will
ask what you desire, and it shall be done
for you. (8) By this My Father is
glorified, that you bear much fruit; so
you will be My disciples. (9) As the
Father loved Me, I also have loved you;
abide in My love. (10) If you keep My
commandments, you will abide in My love,
just as I have kept My Father's
commandments and abide in His love. (11)
These things I have spoken to you, that My
joy may remain in you, and that your joy
may be full. (12) This is My commandment,
that you love one another as I have loved
you. (13) Greater love has no one than
this than to lay down one's life for his
friends. (14) You are My friends if you
do whatever I command you. (15) No longer
do I call you servants, for a servant does
not know what his master is doing; but
have called you friends, for all things
that I heard from My Father I have made
known to you. (16) You did not choose Me,
but I chose you and appointed you that you
should go and bear fruit, and that your
fruit should remain, that whatever you ask
the Father in My name He may give you.
(17) These things I command you, that you
love one another.

Me you may have peace. In the world you

(1)(2) Jesus spoke these words, lifted up
His eyes to heaven, and said: "Father, the
hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your
Son also may glorify You, as You have given
Him authority over all flesh, that He should
give eternal life to as many as you have given
Him." (3)And this is eternal life, that they
may know You, the only true God, and Jesus
Christ who You have sent. (4)-(7) I have
glorified You on the earth. I have finished
the work which You have given Me to do. And
now, O Father, glorify Me together with
Yourself, with the glory which I had with You
before the world was. I have manifested
your name to the men (Apostles) whom You have
given Me out of the world. They were Yours,
You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your
word. Now they have known that all things
which You have given Me are from You. (8)
For I have given to them the words which You
have given Me; and they have received them,
and have known surely that I came forth from
You; and they have believed that You sent Me.
(9) I pray for them, I do not pray for the
world but for those whom You have given Me,
for they are Yours. (10)And all Mine are
Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified
in them. (11) Now I am no longer in the
world, but these are in the world, and I come
to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name
those whom You have given Me,
that they may
be one as We are. (14) I have given them
Your word; and the world has hated them
because they are not of the world, just as I
am not of the world. (15) I do not pray that
You should take them out of the world, but
that You should keep them from the evil one.
(16) They are not of the world, just as I am
not of the world. (17)Sanctify them by Your
truth. Your word is truth. (20)
I do not
pray for these alone, but also for those who
will believe in Me (us
Christians) through their word. (22)
And the glory which You gave Me I have given
they may be one just as We are
I in them, and You in Me;
that they may be made perfect in one, and
that the world may know that You have sent Me,
and have loved them as you have loved Me.
(24) Father, I desire that they also whom You
gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they
may behold My glory which You have given Me;
for You loved Me before the foundation of the
world. (26) And I have declared to them Your
name, and will declare it, that the love with
which You loved Me may be in them, and I in

REVELATIONS, Chapter 1
11..Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last:
and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the
seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna,
and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto
Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
12..And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And
being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
13..And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto
the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot,
and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
14..His head and his hairs were white like wool, as
white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15..And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they
burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many
16..And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out
of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his
countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
17..And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.
And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me,
Fear not; I am the first and the last:
18..I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold,
I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of
hell and of death.
19..Write the things which
thou hast seen, and the things
which are, and the things
which shall be hereafter; (Note:
Christ is telling John that the things he will be seeing are
things of the past,
of the future. This verse is another reason that I
believe the Scroll that only our Lamb can open represented the
beginning and the ending of Jesus' experience with man.)
Revelation 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth
shall worship him (the beast), whose names are not written
in the book of life of the Lamb
slain from the foundation of the world.
(Note it says that the Book of Life
belongs to the Lamb...who is Jesus Christ...a lamb
sacrificed for us. He is the only One who can keep a
person from being deceived...and ultimately lost.)
Revelation 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was,
and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit,
and go into perdition: and
dwell on the earth shall
(they will be in awe
and will be deceived by the beast.)

was, and is not, and yet is.
was in the Beginning of our creation,
was not, for the most part of the Millennium(
having been bound again in the bottomless pit during the
Bowl Wrath at the beginning of the Millennium,...and
once more during the last hour of the Millennium when he
was loosed again to test those who were perfectly taught
about good and evil and the Will of Jesus Christ and the
Father. His "is" didn't last very long because he
was cast into perdition and the 2nd Death.
