The True Gospel of Jesus Christ

Jesus tells us to live by the Will of the Father



"Mark 16:15 preach the gospel to every creature. Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega .. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, .. they .. have right to the tree of life, and .. enter .. the city."

If we love and obey God with reverential fear, we will be made born of God with his seed abiding in us, and we will overcome all sins.

1. 'God the Word' became a man and God again.

John 1:1 says that Jesus Christ was 'God the Word' from the beginning. Then he became a man in sinful flesh as in John 1:14 and Romans 8:3. As a man, he received spirit, grace, truth, and power from God the Father. Even though, he lived as a man in sinful flesh, he lived with no sin as in John 8:48, because of the spirit, grace, truth, and power from God. He lived as a sample for us, as in 1 Peter 2:21, and it is to prove that anybody, despite being in sinful flesh, can live a holy life by the same spirit, grace, truth, and power of God. Then, after he has died on the cross, and was raised from death, he was made Lord, Christ, begotten Son, and God, because of his holy life according to Philippians 2:7-11. Most Christians think that Jesus Christ never ceased to be God, and he was living as God and man at the same time. It is not only ignorance, but it is rebellion against the word of God, by the instigation of the devil, who is Satan. Hebrews 1:8&9 says that he was anointed as God because he lived a perfect life and fulfilled the 'will of the Father' in holiness. Preachers are not stupid, but they purposely do not preach this.

2. How Common Christians perceive the Will of God?

Jesus Christ says in Matthew 7:21, "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." So, we must do the will of God. "Matthew 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." So, if we do the Will of God the Father, we will be brethren to Jesus Christ. "1 John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." We know this. But what is the will of God, in real laymen's language, so that we may do them? "1 Thessalonians 4:2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: 4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; 5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: 6 That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. 7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. 8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit." Here, the Will of God the Father is spelled out clearly. Mainly we must avoid the lust or the filth of the flesh. But we need the holy spirit and power of God, in order to overcome the lust of the flesh, which is the addiction of sin. But, when God gives spiritual things and we reject them. "1 Thessalonians 5:18 ...for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19 Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings, and such things" When God gives the holy spirit, and the things pertained to that, receive it as treasure. Don't treat them as cheap.

3. How did Jesus do, as a Man, and after he became God?

"John 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. John 5:30 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 sent me. John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me." The very life of Jesus was dedicated to doing the will of the Father. "Matthew 26:42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done." Even at death, Jesus has submitted to his Father's will. "Galatians 1:4 ..(Jesus) gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:" So, the will of God in Jesus Christ is mentioned in two steps. One is, he sacrificed himself for our sins; so, he may forgive us as author of salvation. The second is, he may deliver us from the evil world, it is to turn us away from our iniquities, and he does it as God after his resurrection; it is in Acts 3:26. Christians think that both are done as Man-Jesus. Man-Jesus died 2020 (in the video I said 2200, it was an error) years ago, and since then, he is with us as omnipotent Spirit Jesus Christ who is Almighty God. The 'will' of the Father is that he delivers us from the 'evil' of the world, and then forgives our past sins.

4. "Will of God the Father" in Man Jesus of Nazareth.

God the Father was the Most High God in the old testament. As the brain to the Omnipotent Spirit Body of God, the Most High God decides all things; God the Word will do them; and the Spirit of God will provide all the power. So, God the Father wrote a plan for the salvation of people. In "Hebrews 10:7 Jesus said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;" That is, God the Father had established the animal sacrifices as sin offering; but it did not stop the sins of the people; and so, God the Father had no pleasure in the system that he did establish in the law. "9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second." Here, Jesus says that he will come to do the "will of God the Father" to take away the animal sacrifice system, and to establish a second system. "10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:" In the first system, the priests could not remove or to take away the sinning of the people from them. They were repeatedly sinning again and again. But Jesus will sacrifice himself only one time: not again and again. "14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified." Here two works are done. One is sanctified, and the second is perfected. Because by one time sacrifice, Jesus will perfect those who are already sanctified, that is, this sacrifice will not apply to those who are not sanctified. So, what is the sanctification? The sanctification is the work that is done by the resurrected God Jesus Christ. Let us see that.

5. "Will of God the Father" in God Lord Jesus Christ.

"Acts 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." God the Father did that. So, the resurrected Jesus Christ, who is in the Spirit, and now he is God the Son, has come to this world a second time to do an important work; that is to turn away people from sins and iniquities. We must recognize it and accept it. "Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." After his resurrection, Jesus Christ came to his disciples and told them to preach his gospel. That is, they must preach the people to obey what he has commanded. This Jesus Christ has all powers, that is, he is omnipotent and omnipresent. He will be with those preachers, who preach people to obey him, until the end of the world. With his power, he will turn people away from their sins, if they want him to do it. So, Jesus Christ is back in the world for 2200 (it was an error, it is 2020) years. It is tragic that Christians do not even know this. We remember that he was a man, and we keep the picture of the man Jesus as God. In Ephesians 5:25-27, we see that the resurrected God Jesus Christ, sanctify and cleanse us, that he might present us to himself as glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but we should be holy and without blemish. Titus 2:11-14 says, that he appears as grace of God, bringeth salvation, teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world. And with all power as God he gives himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, to be zealous for doing good works. He is doing this as living Spirit God Jesus, not as man Jesus. 1 John 3:5-6 says, "5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him." That is, the Almighty Spirit Jesus takes away our sins, and if we abide in him, we will not sin. But preachers preach that we all will sin until we die, since they do not know the resurrected Jesus Christ. 8 says that "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." If we receive Jesus Christ, he will destroy the works of the devil. Now he is with us as God Jesus Christ in the Spirit.

6. Jesus took away the first, and established the second.

What is the first and what is the second? From the time of Adam, God gives commands to people; but they do not obey God; it is called sin, and people were sinning. God told them to do sin sacrifice, in which they kill animals and shed its blood, which is a ceremony, by which God may forgive them. The purpose of God is that people must stop to commit sin. You may study the details of the forgiveness in this links: "Forgive Sins: video and Transcript". God did not like the continuation of sins. So, God wants to put an end to the priesthood and the perpetual sacrifice system. So, God sent "God the Word", made him to be a man, and to die as the one time sacrifice, for the forgiveness of people, and thereby to stop their sinning. This will be the second system. How does it work? You may study the details of the second system in these links: "Establish New; Video & Transcript". Let me give a short account in case you have not gone to the detailed study. In the old testament, God gave two animals, one to be sacrificed and another to be a scapegoat to carry away their sins. In the new testament, God sent Jesus two times; once God made him a man and to be a sacrifice; the next he made him as God, and sent him to take away their sins, that is, he will remove the unrighteousness, which is the cause of sin, from them. It is in 1 John 1:9, that he cleanse us from all unrighteousness. So, these people will not sin anymore, but the past sins are over them; and so, at this point, Jesus as the author of salvation, forgives their past sins and makes them perfect. It is in Romans 3:25. This is the only time God will forgive their past sins, makes them perfect, and there will no more sacrifice. This is the second system that is established. But Christians are not taught the scripture, and they try to use the sacrifice of Jesus as the old testament animal sacrifice. In the old testament, they can buy an animal every time they sin. Now, they cannot buy the blood of Jesus, and God must use it. He will not use it, until they are turned away from sinning. And, it will be used only one time and no more. But people try to claim the blood of Jesus Christ every time they commit sin and they sin as often as they desire. But the truth is, that the second system is already established 2200 years ago. Christians must learn the truth. Now, the resurrected Spirit Jesus Christ, saves us from sins.

7. How to be practical with Jesus the Almighty God in Spirit?

How can we get to know this Jesus Christ, who is the Almighty God, and who is in the omnipotent Spirit, in a personal way? First, be born again that is to be born of the spirit. Don't just believe that you are born again, and you already have the holy spirit in you. Don't just learn to speak in tongues and say you have the spirit in you. These two are entirely two different things. Unless God gives the holy spirit to your soul, you are not born of the spirit, no matter what else happens. This is the acid test, please use it. If you do not have the sincere intense desire towards heavenly things; and a desire to live righteously and godly with others; you do not have the holy spirit. Repent, and ask God to give you the holy spirit. Ask him with intensity. For an example, begin with a one day fasting and prayer, set aside all your normal activities, meditate upon God and on his word, earnestly ask him to give you the holy spirit. A lot of Christians will tell God that they have the spirit already and ask him to confirm their spirit. Don't do that; it is just a mockery. Try the fasting, prayer, and meditation with the word of God. Lock yourself in with God; may be a day, or two, or three. It will prove that you are thirsty, and eager to receive the holy spirit. Don't follow short-cut tutorials to drink the spirit as you drink water, and such gimmicks. These things lead you to fake spirits. Pay the price for the genuine; this is regarding to the kingdom of God. It is not a joke. Matthew 11:12 says, "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force." Be genuine and aggressive. God knows the heart and God is righteous. If you mean business, God will give the holy spirit to you. Then look for the Almighty Spirit God Jesus Christ. "Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation." The first time he became a man, we study him as history. But now, if you look for him, he will reveal himself to you, he will appear to you, and save you. He will be practically real to you. You can communicate with him as a person to person, because the Holy Ghost will communicate with your spirit. Jesus Christ and God the Father will communicate with you through the Spirit. It is spiritual. And you will be blessed.
