On the Wrong Side of the Tracts — why Christian mini-leaflets fail to reveal "the Way, the Truth, and the Life"
WHAT ARE TRACTS?
They are tiny, single sheet leaflets, sometimes folded to perhaps 3x5 inches, that supposedly present Christianity in a theological "nutshell". Just agree with the "verses" on one side of the leaflet; connect the eight, or so, "scriptural dots"—if that's not too confusing—sign on the (dotted) or solid line on the back of the tract, and "presto chango"; you have single-handedly "flipped the switch" that sends your "soul train" up the mountain tracks to eternal life in Heaven, instead of its "from-the-moment-of-conception" default descent into "the valley of the shadow of eternal death", which apparently means eternal life in ever-burning hell-fire. The choice is yours —supposedly.
And those who leave anonymous leaflet droppings all over the place assure themselves that someday they will see thousands of "stars" in their "heavenly crowns" because they went to all the trouble of letting a leaflet do what neither Jesus (YAHshua), nor any of his disciples could do—get people to sign a do-it-yourself "contract" guaranteeing eternal salvation simply by agreeing to believe a handful of Bible verses that neither Jesus, nor his disciples knew about—because they hadn't been written yet.
As I've mentioned before—if all that GOD requires for a human to instantly qualify for eternal life in Heaven, instead of eternal life in Hell, is to agree with a few "scripture verses", why didn't GOD think of enabling every human baby to be able to read, and understand a few "New Testament" scriptures from birth—and make those scriptures available around the World from the first day of Adam and Eve's existence?
Lest you get the impression that I have a problem believing that each and every scripture found on most traditional Christian "gospel tracts" is revealed truth—I don't. The verses mean what they say to someone who reads them in context—with surrounding verses that help explain their fullness.
But too many "salvation tracts" present an "empty nutshell" version of the way to "salvation"—meaning the literal saving of one's personality-generating "spirit" from annihilation by GOD at some point after the end of one's only physical life. No one is truly saved until after his or her personal judgment by the Angel of the LORD—YAHshua. For most who take the minute or two needed to read a typical tract, it will have as much value in the real World, and in the "next World", as the tiny message found in a Chinese "fortune cookie".
GO NOT HOUSE-TO-HOUSE
Some who go "door-to-door" trying to get strangers on the track to Heaven, instead of to Hell, believe they are emulating the disciples of Jesus who were sent out to present an extremely simplified announcement of the "gospel", or good news of the impending Kingdom of GOD, which will be administrated by the Messiah/Christ on Earth. They aren't.
Jesus told those he sent out to spread the "news" of the coming Kingdom of GOD, "Go not from house to house". Jesus' normal method of operation at the beginning of his ministry, was to preach his gospel messages in synagogues, with hope that there would be some in the audience interested in expanding their existing belief in the coming of the Messiah of Israel. He preached to those most likely to listen.
But Church venues have always been a "tough audience"—as they continue to be, today—in regard to teaching anyone something "new". In fact when he decided to reveal more about himself than ever before in the synagogue of his childhood—the "bouncers" (sometimes called "deacons") tried to throw him off of a cliff!
When his healing miracles began to draw large audiences (or more accurately, spectators, since few could hear him clearly—and even his closest disciples seldom understood him—he continued to attempt to teach those who came to him—as long as they were "Jews" or Israelites, and not "Gentiles".
The apparent reality was, however, that the disciples were not given supernatural power "freely", or liberally, from GOD, to "perform healings" "at will"—as some current day "evangelists" claim to be doing. There is no evidence any of the disciples raised anyone from the dead. Even YAHshua, himself, was rarely recorded as authorizing the return of anyone to a continuation of mortal life—though that doesn't mean he wasn't doing it.
HAS JESUS BEEN "KNOCKING" ON EVERYONE'S "DOOR" IN AN ATTEMPT TO SAVE EVERYONE THROUGHOUT HISTORY?
In spite of an often misappropriated spiritual image found in Revelation 3:20 which refers to the Lord attempting to regain the attention of those in the Church of GOD in Laodicea who had claimed they were believers, but had "closed the door" of their spiritual receptiveness to him— the Lord never had, and still doesn't have any reason to try to "get a foot in the door" of anyone's private life, or house, with a "life, or death", "now, or never" "hair on fire" message requiring an immediate decision regarding one's "preferred" choice of eternal, after-death destination— Heaven, or Hell.
Those who end their prayers by saying "in Jesus' name— Amen" have no understanding of its true significance. But those closest to the Angel of the LORD, frequently call him by his name "Amen", or AH'mun. The sound is also heard in the name "almond"— an exceptionally symbolic creation designed to illustrate several spiritual concepts— which will be revealed in later publications.
"Amen" (mispronounced— A' MEN'), is not a "magic" word that causes the "activation" of a prayer. "Amen" is one of the names of the Word, or Angel of the LORD GOD, who is able to cause the "activation" and fulfillment of a prayer if GOD authorizes it.
But back to the issue of whether or not Jesus has been knocking on everyone's physical, or, perhaps "mental", door trying to get every person "saved" and destined for Heaven before he or she dies— the moment which supposedly ends all opportunity for a "death-bed repentance"— even if one dies a moment after one's own birth— or a moment before.
Have no concern about the future opportunities for salvation that will be given to any human who has been born reasonably close to a normal gestational development period— whether alive, or dead. According to James, the brother of Jesus, any human body—even a "living" new-born baby's body— is not considered to be a "living soul" until it begins taking in "the breath of life" which symbolizes receiving the GOD-given, individualized "spirit" which enables every body to exhibit a "unique" human personality.
Just as Adam and Eve were "raised up" with fully adult minds, after their unusual "births"—in like manner, any less-than-adult individual who has been born a first time, but who died before "adulthood", will be given a resurrection opportunity, with an "adult" mind, to be "born again".
Individuals who have become adult—able to make "mature" decisions—and have truly begun on the path to salvation, but who "fall away", are in danger of failing to qualify for salvation during the "First Resurrection". That does not include someone who signed the back of a "salvation tract" because "it seemed like a good idea at the time", but forgets about it the next day.
It is those who have understood enough to make a knowledgeable "decision" who are the focus of the spiritual "door knocking" of the Lord—not those who are spiritually "cold", or unconverted, and still available for a face-to-face opportunity for salvation during their resurrection to a Final Judgment.
But what men think is impossible, GOD doesn't. Which is why the Lord does not give up hope that some who are in danger of losing their potential salvation, will once again, "see the light".
WAS JESUS A "NOW OR NEVER"—"ETERNAL HELL-FIRE AND BRIMSTONE" PREACHER?
Most of those to whom Jesus preached didn't even believe in anything resembling the "Hell" described by what's left of the "eternal hell-fire and brimstone" traditionalists who continue to purvey their "old time religion"—which is a lot "younger" than they think. It isn't supported by the "New Testament", as has been, and will be presented, at length, on the Xrayzr Revelations website.
And "current", but not "modern" traditional "eternal hell-fire theology" wasn't, and isn't supported by the "Old Testament"—any of it. Few, if any of the "Sadducees" of Jesus' day—those who had their heads buried in the "Books of Moses", and elsewhere, didn't even believe in a "resurrection"—even though the various resurrections are clearly supported throughout the traditional scriptures, beginning with Adam's awakening after a symbolic "death", to a "new life" with Eve.
In a sense, Eve's body arose—as a new version of Adam's "flesh and bones"—from his symbolically "dead" body.
In an earlier Presentation,If You Want to Know Good and Evil — Read This, I portrayed one of the primary ages-old World-wide indicators of GOD's Master Plan for the "salvation" of virtually all humans . . .
Adam and Eve “knew good” from the first day of their existence. That’s just about all that they had experienced during their short lives—probably a few months—from the beginning of a “Mediterranean” Spring, to the end of Summer, just before the Fall, when many trees take on the colors of burning flames preceding their apparent “death”, which continues through the “dead of Winter”, until they are “resurrected” to continuing life the following Spring, and they are given another chance to be fruitful.
The birth of Seth, after the righteous shepherd Abel was killed by Cain, was intended to illustrate the future resurrection of another "good shepherd" who was slaughtered because of hatred without a cause.
The Sadducees missed the latter day resurrection doctrine—as have many "Jewish" theologians—but an "eternal hell-fire" doctrine wasn't there to be missed. Or if it's there, and everyone missed it, then they must all be sizzling in eternal hell-fire wondering what they did wrong in their life that caused GOD to allow that to happen to them—or what allowed GOD to cause that to happen to them.
Don't be concerned. No one has been sizzling in hell-fire since they died because they didn't "believe in Jesus". Not only is there no support for such an obscenely atrocious doctrine in the "Old" Messianic scriptures—one can't find it in the "not quite as old, Messianic/Christian scriptures—as I have, and will be proving again, and again, in Xrayzr Revelations.
NO HUMANS ARE "AUTOMATICALLY" SENT TO AN ETERNITY IN HELL, AFTER DEATH
No "Jews" or "Gentiles" from any time or place in human history will "automatically" suffer "eternally"—or even during their brief, individualized, private "Last Judgment"—for not "believing in Jesus" during their one and only original life-time—although some are "in danger of eternal damnation" if they personally witnessed his miracles during his brief human ministry and hated him, and what they thought they heard him say.
That statement will be instantly rejected as "heresy" by those who apparently believe, and sometimes want to believe, that at least 99.99% of all humans who have lived on Earth throughout human history will be thrown into eternal hell-fire immediately after death because, "regrettably", they weren't handed a "magic tract" with a few scripture verses on it that would have "saved" them instantly if they had agreed with what the verses seem to say.
It's no secret that many denominational "Protestant" Christians believe that only their denomination's collection of "beliefs" is sufficient for "true salvation" and that most of the hundreds of millions of "probably false" Christians in other major and minor Christian denominations (such as Catholics, Pentecostals, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, and many others) might as well be atheists, in regard to their chances of GOD allowing them to "go to Heaven" when they die.
Some Christians even look at others within their own local church with suspicion, wondering how many actually believe every single doctrine of "their" church as "perfectly" as they do. It is an attitude that was displayed by Jesus' cousins, James and John, the "Sons of Thunder" (Mark 3:17). Jesus told them what he thought of their "holier-than-thou, elitist" and counter-productive attitude, and what kind of "spirit" they were exhibiting.
PEOPLE DIDN'T FOLLOW JESUS JUST TO HEAR HIM SPEAK—IN FACT MOST PROBABLY COULDN'T HEAR HIM SPEAK
Few would have come to listen to Jesus' messages if he had not been able to perform healing miracles. It was the healing miracles that drew crowds to see his "performances"—not desire to hear him—if any of what he said could be heard farther than several yards away. The crowds followed him hoping that they, as individuals, might be healed.
The same "drawing" power is used and abused by many "evangelists" with big microphones who claim to have "miracle healing" power—"from Gaahduh!"—accompanied by a pitch for "support" in the form of "generous" tithes and offerings. Licensed physicians will probably cost less and have a slightly better outcome in expediting one's psychosomatic, or just plain "psycho" healing "needs"—even though they usually don't put on a very entertaining "show"—that's what you do for them.
Jesus wasn't concerned whether most people could hear him—or understand him, even if they did hear him. He often attempted to minimize people's awareness of who he was and what he might be able to do for them.
JESUS SPOKE IN PARABLES TO CONFUSE THE MAJORITY WHO WEREN'T READY FOR CONVERSION AND ITS RESPONSIBILITIES
There is an important reason why Jesus didn't want to put most who saw and heard him in a position of having to make a decision to "believe in" him, "then-and-there". It is the reason GOD does not care how many, throughout human history, have heard an intelligible presentation of who He is, and who His Angel is, and was, and will become. And it's only reasonable—and true—that everyone should have an opportunity to hear something intelligible about GOD, and His Master Plan for humanity before anyone should be expected to "believe in it".
That reason was given above, and will be given again, and again, as one of the most important verses in the "New Testament" which "now-or-never, no second chance" John 3:16 sticklers apparently have never read.
If someone has not heard or seen YAHshua in person—they are not condemned for "disbelief". Even if someone did see YAHshua and witnessed his healing miracles—they are not already condemned if they weren't sure of what they were seeing. The closest disciples of YAHshua were still in that category after his resurrection.
Only those who heard YAHshua's personal warning messages, and saw him verify his GOD-given authority with healing miracles—yet hated him without a cause—are already condemned for disbelief. Yet, even they will probably get a "second chance". And it is not heresy to believe that GOD will give even the worst of blasphemers a "second", and "third", and any number of chances. It should be considered "heresy" to believe he will throw the vast majority of humans into hell-fire without a "first" chance.
One time Jesus made a crowd wait for three days without attempting to provide food for them, so that only those who were truly interested in hearing him would remain—as opposed to those who were mostly trying to see a healing miracle—especially one performed on themselves, or a loved one.
WHY CHRISTIAN MINI-LEAFLETS FAIL TO REVEAL "THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE".
What can we learn from those tracts, or mini-leaflets that seem to make "the only way to salvation" so simple a child can understand it? We won't learn from such a tract that the pathway to understanding salvation is so difficult to find, that most humans will never find it during their one and only original life—even if they search for it in every Sunday School class in their home-town.
And GOD plans far more than saving "all Israel", except for a "handful" that have already had a reasonable opportunity to see and hear the Final Judge of all humans.
Why is it so "impossible" for some incorrigible (uncorrectable) "theologians"—and other "Sunday School teachers"—to believe that GOD will eventually ensure that all humans become saved when they've been given full knowledge of the truth about Salvation, and how it can be received. Such "incorrigibles" seem to take fiendish "delight" in concocting depictions of horrible eternal "punishments" for everyone but themselves—and punishments even for those "heretics" who don't believe in "eternal retribution" exactly as they describe it.
THE LORD, JESUS HAS A GOAL OF SAVING AS MANY HUMANS AS POSSIBLE, EVEN THOSE WHO HAVE HATED HIM WITHOUT A CAUSE
Notice that the final decision regarding eternal damnation, or annihilation of one's spirit, has not been made even for those who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, or Mind of GOD the Father, who intends to save all men. Many who hated what they thought they heard Jesus saying, were honestly attempting to protect those who might have been led astray by false prophets claiming to speak for GOD. Jesus own "kin" ("blood relatives"), thought he was "crazy" and needed to be "put away".
YAHshua, of Nazareth attended the local synagogue services, and the equivalent of "Sunday School" almost every seventh-day Sabbath from the time Joseph and Mary returned to Nazareth, after living in Egypt for about eight years, until he established his own home in Capernaum throughout his twenties. Yet the chief members of the synagogue in Nazareth were completely unable to recognize "the Way" leading them to future salvation, even though "the Way" was personified before their eyes, in the form of YAHshua.
And even more astonishing, even after hearing and witnessing most of what YAHshua said and did throughout his ministry—his own disciples always seemed suspicious of who he "really" might have been.
According to Jesus, even his closest disciples did not know him, or understand him, after hearing him teach them for over two years, and seeing him perform innumerable miracles of every category. Yet he gave them "the benefit of the doubt" he had that they would ever be truly converted. Jesus said plainly that Peter wasn't converted, nor any of the others, until after Jesus' resurrection, when the Father's Holy Spirit was fully merged with their spirits in the process called "begettal".
In need of even more "benefit of the doubt" were those who thought they were protecting their synagogue from a false teacher—by trying to throw YAHshua off a cliff. Have they lost all hope of being saved during their future Last Judgment by YAHshua who will be the future, final judge of all resurrected humans who have lived since Adam and Eve began to record history?
Of course not! We shall see what you will probably never see on a tract, because those who "write" tracts have probably never read, or heard of, the scripture verses that clearly state that salvation is not a "now or never" proposition.
In fact, only a relative "handful", or Temple "room-full" of individuals who saw YAHshua perform miracles that no other man could do, and speak about himself, as no other man should do, will be "in danger of eternal damnation". And even they are not necessarily doomed to spirit annihilation without hope of salvation—unless they reject YAHshua, face-to-face, again, with hatred, during their final judgment, as they did the first time. Repeating, once again—
All human history should have provided, and should be providing a World full of evidence proving that GOD has always been completely unconcerned about ensuring that everyone in the World becomes aware of the supposed unalterable consequences of not "believing in His only begotten Son" at some point in one's physical life-time. GOD reveals that it is His will that all be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth—about the requirements for salvation.
GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF GLOBAL RELIGIOUS CONFUSION AND IGNORANCE
Some "think" that GOD has managed to reach a minority of the World's population only with a morass of confusing and conflicting theological approaches to the "one way only" unalterable requirement for salvation He supposedly has been enforcing throughout human history—that requirement being "belief in His only begotten Son".
But the Angel of the LORD did not become "the only (supernaturally) begotten (physical) Son" of GOD until 4,000 years of human history had passed—including the "passing", or death of billions of humans who could not have believed in an "only begotten Son" of GOD—because there wasn't one to believe in!
Yet many preach that they had to "somehow" know that they had to believe in him because it has been "decreed by someone" that there can be no "second chance" to believe after one's death. If only those billions had stumbled over a "salvation tract" left on their doorstep that told them "the good news-gospel" that they had better believe in him now—or else!
Perhaps hundreds of millions of Christians have been literally born into their religious belief system, and continue to believe whatever they were told to believe, as toddlers, about the "Christmas stories"—including the one about Santa Claus. And part of the required dogma often includes an "understanding" that there can be no "second chance" to "believe in Jesus" after one's death. Thus, they have no "logical" choice but to believe that uncountable billions of humans will never be saved, because of simple ignorance about a belief that GOD alone supposedly requires, but doesn't bother to make known to most humans.
But the worst part of that grim "fairy tale" is that the "GOD" who hasn't bothered to teach the majority of humans a "thing or two" about his required belief, does find the time to teach billions a "thing or two" about ignoring something they never knew existed—the moment after they die. And they are "taught" about their uninformed "rejection" of the requirement as they are being thrown into sulfurous, ever-burning hell-fire because they died before someone could slip them a "gospel tract" that could have given them automated "fire insurance" and a "get out of Hell free" card, or leaflet, which they could have activated simply by signing their names on the back of the "contract"—or "con" tract.
If any of that simplistic "sulfurous theology" was true, it would make a mockery of one of the most misleading claims one might find on a "salvation tract". It might contain the scripture John 3:16 and imply that GOD loves you "soooo much" that He required His "only begotten Son" to be slaughtered in an excruciating manner so that He might not have to require you, and billions of others, to endure endless eternity in excruciating burning hell-fire, which is the only way He can think of to teach you how much He hates your disbelief in something you never heard of—or in something so distorted, you shouldn't have heard it.
JESUS DID NOT BELIEVE IT WAS NECESSARY THAT HE "DIE FOR THE SINS OF THE WORLD"
In the Presentation Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled you can read a full explanation of why YAHshua did not think his crucifixion was necessary for the salvation of anyone—and how he attempted to convince his Father in Heaven to stop the progression of horror he was about to endure.
You will also see why GOD knew His Angel, who had become His "only Spirit begotten physical Son"—but wasn't before his supernatural conception—could not have properly fulfilled his future position as the Final Judge of all humans unless he understood the full intensity of the final punishment he may have to administer to some who reject his final offer of salvation—face-to-face during a short period of judgment, and opportunity to repent—if necessary.
This is a revelation of what GOD, the Unlimited said to His Angel, at the "moment of conception", or "begettal" of the physical, mortal body that the Angel of the LORD would have to live in, and die in, after its birth. The "spirit", or personality of the Angel of the LORD was not reduced to a human level until his body was born. There was no reason to do it sooner—just as the individualized "spirit" created for each of us, to match the projected appearance type of the human body each of us will have, is not "given" and activated until after breathing commences after birth.
GOD PROBABLY DOESN'T LOVE YOU—AND MAY BARELY KNOW YOU EXIST!
One of the first concepts one needs to understand in order to understand almost anything else in "the Bible", is that GOD does not love you with instinctive emotion that compels Him to do anything—to you, or for you. GOD has designed all emotional response "mechanisms" and is not controlled by any of them.
His Angel, however, is controlled by many instinctive emotions, very similar, and often more powerful than our own—without the unneeded spectrum of "fear" emotions while he is personifying GOD. But those became a very necessary part of his final night on Earth as a mortal human—and he could barely tolerate them—partly because he was completely unfamiliar with them. The whole realm of the reason for emotions in any, and every specie, will be explored, in depth, in future publications.
GOD "loves" you in the same way most humans "love", or should "love" all humans in the World—not with emotional love, but with "no malice aforethought"—no pre-determination to destroy them through warfare, or throw them in Hell forever for not believing something they never heard of.
Sadly, countless millions of "Church-going" Christians, who "believe in Jesus as their personal Savior"—because they've never heard anything about any other "religion"; and very little about their "own" religion—have no problem whatsoever, believing that "their God" is planning to throw billions of other humans into Hell forever for not believing something none of them ever heard of! And if you seriously question them about the validity of that heinous "dogma", they might label you as a despicable heretic and hope "their God" will send you to Hell as soon as possible—to prove they were right!
GOD does not love any human with the uncontrollable, and somewhat desperate emotion some call "infatuation"—a designed, and very instructive emotion. Though the natural hormonal chemistry of "infatuation" can last long enough for some to go as far as marrying their new-found "soul mate"—the reality of life eventually returns a person's hormonal euphoria to normal.
The chemistry of producing such "euphoria" is so well "understood", in a laboratory sense, that drugs have been designed—mostly, illegal drugs—to stimulate one's body chemistry to produce a simulated sense of euphoric "love" and sense of inappropriate intimacy among those who are accepting of that self-destructive behavior. One of the drugs of this type is known as "ecstasy"—but the negative side effects—or the "down side" effects of the temporary euphoric state are a danger to one's health and reputation.
GOD would be incapable of judging any humans, if He loved any humans with the virtually "unconditional love" that most mothers (of every specie) instinctively lavish ("slavishly") on their obnoxious and demanding broods. I'm only slightly "kidding" about "kids" that are obnoxious and demanding. The attitudes that most young brats—I mean children—exhibit, are part of the persona of immaturity that all of us are expected to outgrow after "babyhood"—not without effort—but by learning continual self-control.
Unfortunately, too many parents are able to dismiss complaints about the earsplitting "ape-like" screaming of their young children by justifying it with the old lame excuse—"kids will be kids". But if such "kids" are never told by adults to "quiet down", they can "grow-up" to be the @#%&*'s that enjoy blaring their "music" as loud as possible outside, or roaring around aimlessly with deafening, unmuffled motorcycles, or "hot-rods", eliciting curses from everyone within "earshot".
GOD is not controlled by any of the infinite number of instincts He has designed and created to be appropriate behavioral responses in any specie's individual life. If GOD hadn't created the "mothering instincts" of all creatures that need them—few offspring would survive. In many cases, the mother would just literally eat them—rather than provide for their needs. And many male "mammals", and non-mammalian species, without "mothering" instincts, do actually kill and eat some of the progeny they may have engendered. It's called "infanticide".
The Bible says that humans have to make themselves "worthy" of GOD's voluntary, self-generated emotional love by being well-behaved and self-disciplined. But since few can do that with any consistency, GOD has provided an incentive program that encourages humans to love Him, and His Angel, who personifies Him in the form of a singular personality.
"EASY BELIEVISM" WITHOUT "GOOD WORKS" IS "GOOD FOR NOTHING"
The incentive program designed by GOD to encourage a believer to be well-behaved and self-disciplined, is a promise of rewards for "good works" One makes oneself "worthy" of the love of GOD by attempting to be obedient to the simple commandments of GOD—not ridiculous religious rituals—but the basic, fundamental "laws of love" that prove one's own love of GOD.
FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD!
Millions of "fundamentalist" Christian believers have been taught to reject the concept that "works", or "efforts" to be "profitable servants" is a necessary component of the faith or "belief" in GOD, and Christ that will lead to true "salvation"—the saving of one's spirit for eternal life after one's physical life ends. Some have been so indoctrinated in hatred toward the term "works" that their hair bursts into flames if some "heretic" doesn't agree with them. Well get out your fire extinguishers if you are one of them.
The following scriptures—and I—won't be referring to time-wasting, non-sensical, religious rituals added to "simple" logical theology. Those are referred to as "dead (useless) works". But some have gotten their religious façade so turned inside out with their vindictiveness toward all "works" that they consider the informal observance of a seventh-day of the week Sabbath rest as a "work" that will cause GOD to question the validity of one's dedication to "belief only".
YES, THERE ARE HUMANS WHO ARE RIGHTEOUS—AND YOU CAN BE ONE OF THEM
A favorite "tract" scripture that is supposed to make a potential "convert" admit that he is an "evil sinner"—even though he isn't—is Romans 3:10.
It is based on what is written in Psalms 14 and 53 by King David, who often had a very dejected and foul attitude toward God and everyone else during his progressively degenerative final years.
But a judgment that may have been applicable to some "focus group" at one point in human history, may not be applicable to everyone in the rest of human history.
BEGETTAL, OR CONCEPTION IS NOT THE SAME AS BEING BORN
It is very important when reading the King James Version of the apostle John's works, to understand that the Greek term "gennao"—which can be translated as "beget" or "conceive", has also been translated very inconsistently as "born"—which has resulted in confusion and misunderstanding of important symbolism that makes perfect sense when compared to its physical parallel in the reproductive processes of human beings.
In later publications there will be a full, amazing explanation, or expose' of how all major Messianic/Christian doctrines are symbolized and clarified by parallels found in the complex interdependence of the many components of the human body often called "private parts"—not only those associated with reproductive processes, but other vital processes centered in the centers of male and female human bodies.
THE ONLY HUMAN WHO HAS EVER BEEN "BORN AGAIN" IS JESUS—BUT ALL MUST BE "BORN AGAIN" BY TRANSFORMATION INTO SPIRIT EMBODIMENT
The following text in this section is from: Are you prepared for the "Second Coming" — of Elijah?
If you believe you have already been "born again", please demonstrate your ability to be an invisible force like the wind, suddenly appearing in flesh and bone form "from out of nowhere" to teach those who need it.
The "spiritual Body" of Christ—the only true Church of GOD maintained within the Holy Spirit, or hallowed, "halo'd" central "Mind" of GOD, (the Church whose members GOD only knows), will all be "born again" at the same time (at the second-coming of Christ, the Messiah) and fully joined to the "Head", YAHshua, who was the "first-born of many brethren " (the first to be "born again" into a Spirit embodiment). That is symbolized by the fact that in virtually all human births, the head is born first—usually amid the mother's excruciating pain, and "blood, sweat, and tears"—then the body is "eased" out, "in the twinkling of an eye."
The "Body" of Christ on Earth, and in Heaven, is very much attached to the Head, wherever he might choose to be—or wherever he is assigned to be by GOD, the Father. Any humans who have become "written in the Lamb's Book of Life—in Heaven", beginning with Adam and Eve at the "foundation" or founding of our human World, and including any added throughout human history, and those who will become part of that Most Holy Book; are known only to GOD and His Angel.
Those who have fully died in an Earthly sense are not considered "dead" by GOD, and their "spirits" or "minds" are literally "sleeping" in GOD's Spirit and are not usually aware of anything unless "awakened" in GOD's Spirit for periods of communication and training for the responsibilities they will be awarded when they are finally given uninterrupted continuous consciousness and authority to utilize glorified levels of embodiment beginning at the "First Resurrection".
NONE OF THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN THE MESSIAH, OR IN JESUS AS THE CHRIST, AND DIED BEFORE HE DID, OR AFTER, "WENT TO HEAVEN"—WHERE DID THEY GO?
The fig leaves that were covering that huge, strategically placed, multi-trunked fig tree, which had been grown to symbolize Israel, "withered" and fell away exposing the bareness and barrenness of "Israel" just as the fig leaf "works of Adam and Eve's hands" withered and fell away as they tried to cover their embarrassing shortfalls.
Adam and Eve then witnessed their Creator sacrifice a lamb and use its "hide" to cover their increasingly uncomfortable nakedness as he forgave them for temporarily having another "god" before him. The fig tree symbolizing Israel's spiritual barrenness became exposed but was soon covered by the "blood of the Lamb" during Jesus' crucifixion on Passover in 30 A.D. And he forgave "Israel" because of their ignorance, just as he had forgiven Adam and Eve, as their God, because of their ignorance.
In light of the "confession" mentioned above, that Jesus did not believe that his crucifixion execution was necessary for anyone's "salvation", and sought his own physical salvation by attempting to convince his Father to stop the proceedings—it should not seem strange, or "heretical" to "interpret" the famous John 3:16 verse in a far more reasonable, and acceptable manner—as is confirmed by John 3:17.
GOD did not "give" His "only begotten Son" to those prepared to slaughter him. He "gave", or "sent" His only begotten Son to the World He loves—not necessarily to those who live on it—so that eventually He can fulfill His desire to bring all humans to an understanding of the Truth that will enable all to qualify for salvation.
WHAT IS TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS?
Don't be concerned if this section sounds completely confusing to you. Much of what Paul attempted to say was as theologically "deep" as he was. And Peter warned converts not to "go off the deep end" diving-board with untrustworthy "Bible teachers" that should have been made to "walk the plank" because of their misapplications of Paul's 'hard to be understood" scriptures—such as rejection of all "works" as a necessary component of qualification for salvation.
Throughout the ancient, historical generations of Israel, animals have sometimes been "sacrificially executed", though innocent, as a substitute for any humans who might have deserved a death penalty for their worst crimes; which often involved idolatrous worship of devil gods—even during the Exodus. In like manner, YAHshua was "sacrificially executed", though innocent, as a substitute for any who might have deserved a death penalty for sins—especially rejection of the will of GOD. Of course most humans don't deserve a permanent death penalty for sins unless they hatefully reject the "sacrifice" of YAHshua and insist that their own "righteousness" should obligate GOD to give them eternal life.
The many biblical laws of purification, separation, and sacrifices found within the "Law of Moses" were only intended to be temporary and were primarily designed to be burdensome punishments for disobedience to useful and beneficial laws such as the Ten Commandments. Many ritualistic religious laws in the "Law of Moses" never had any real value and have been "set aside".
"Sin" may be defined as transgression of a law—and if there is no specific law prohibiting a behavior, there should be no "sin" charged in regard to engaging in that behavior. But it would be illogical to eliminate all written ethical and moral laws as a means of eliminating "sin". GOD's ethical and moral laws are always in effect no matter how many of them are "officialized" by humans printing them on paper.
Abraham did not have to wait for the Law of Moses to understand what GOD expected from him in regard to morality and ethical behavior—although he made his share of questionable judgments as to what GOD wanted him to do.
Of course, a "lawless" society—one with few written, or codified laws—will not be a "sinless" society. If societies lack laws to "break", it does not mean there shouldn't be laws in a society. And the more "sinful", or immoral, and unethical a society becomes, the more important it becomes for "wise men" to create simple, enforceable behavioral guidelines that even the dumbest of "scoff-laws" can understand and respect—but they must produce a useful result.
The problem with too many "laws" is that often they are completely unnecessary and worthless—especially ritualistic religious rigmarole that exists primarily to entertain those who enjoy enforcing it. Many, and probably most laws that humans print on paper are of no concern to GOD in regard to His charging anyone with "sin". Countless religious laws exist only in the minds of self-righteous religionists who love to concoct new religious "laws" for others to obey.
No one has ever lived a perfectly "sinless" life; and even if someone did, they would not automatically qualify for GOD's gift of eternal life. GOD is not obligated to give anyone eternal life—even those who have signed their names on the back of a "salvation tract". And likewise, no one automatically "qualifies" for eternal death simply by being born and having one's name put on a birth certificate. And even a life of sin doesn't permanently, and unalterably, disqualify a person for consideration for GOD's gift of eternal life.
All laws in the Bible that are of any general use in controlling society can be summarized in the following manner"
It is refusal to constrain one' behavior to conform to those two primary guidelines that is the true "sin" that might require punishment specifically administered by GOD—though GOD has chosen not to spend time in this World "micro-managing" the misbehavior—or even the abominable atrocities committed before the "end-point" He has chosen to put an end to it.
"EASY BELIEVISM" AND "MINI-LEAFLETS" WON'T PROTECT YOU DURING THE END-TIME
Before GOD "makes an end of sins", Satan, and all of his alienated angels, will be given a period of forty-two "long" months to demonstrate to the World the consequences of "Sin Gone Wild". It will be a period in which evil laws will be abundant, but good laws will be ignored. Not only will the Ten Commandments be rejected and ridiculed—laws that stabilize society will be set aside.
If a major symbolic, yet overwhelming solar event occurs that "flips the electrical switch" on our modern World, and a new "Dark Age" enshrouds the Globe, it will be deceptively easy for the Anti-Christ to claim that he has power to "move heaven and Earth".
But it will be GOD who has done it to create the appropriate "atmosphere" for the time-limited, yet "unlimited" rule of Satan, and his alienated angels.
The following is prophesied to occur at the very end of the End-Time—but GOD is famous for creating historic prototypes of prophetic archetypes.
In addition, authority to marry will be forbidden to some degree during the End-Time, in an attempt to destroy the child-protective aspect of marriage which enables stable family structures.
Do not assume that statements such as these imply that one will be permanently and unalterably "saved" the moment one "calls upon the name of the Lord", or "confesses with the mouth the Lord Jesus"—which could mean almost anything.
Among Jerusalem Jews, in the middle of the "First Century", confessing one's belief that YAHshua was the Christ was equivalent to breaking all ties to one's synagogue. And for some who caught the attention of the murderous "goon squad" boss named Saul, who became the apostle Paul, confession could result in imprisonment or worse.
Some might wonder if it's worth believing in an unverifiable, future "salvation" from "perishing" at the hands of GOD—which, to some, means "not perishing for the rest of eternity"—if it means being threatened "here and now" with slaughter, or imprisonment by murderous religious bigots like Saul, who claim to be GOD's law enforcement officers and executioners.
Hundreds of millions have been taught that the worst "sin" that exists, in GOD's opinion, is disbelief in His "only begotten Son"—Jesus of Nazareth. If you don't believe—even if you never heard that you were supposed to—you will be damned for eternity by the GOD who loves you "soooo much" He hasn't bothered to reveal the one and only "way to salvation" to most humans who have ever lived.
Supposedly the "easy believism" that John 3:16 seems to support (but doesn't) sums up an "airtight , fire-proof case" for the interrelated "required" belief (lest one be labeled a heretic) that probably 99.99% of all humans who have lived on Earth will be fried in Hell for eternity because they didn't, at some point in their human lives "believe in Jesus Christ as their personal savior".
WHAT IF A PERSON NEVER GETS A CHANCE TO "CONFESS" HIS BELIEF IN THE LORD JESUS TO ANYONE—IS HE THEREFORE, UNQUALIFIED FOR SALVATION?
It has been utterly impossible for the vast majority of all humans who have lived on Earth to "confess with their mouth the Lord Jesus", because no one can "confess" something they've never heard of—and had no reason to "confess" to anyone even if they did.
Who is a "confessor" supposed to be "confessing" to? Certainly not some human calling himself a "Father", who, undoubtedly, has a lot of "unconfessed" sins between himself and whatever he believes "God" to be—or whatever he believes "the mother of God" to be—it being, apparently, less risky and intimidating to "confess" to a "mother" than a "father"—even a "fellow father" who knows almost nothing about being a true father.
The scripture makes it crystal clear who one must "confess" to in order to be saved from "eternal deletion" or spirit annihilation. Every tongue shall confess to GOD.
There is only one true Spirit Father, or Holy Father—GOD, the Father. Confess anything that bothers you about your behavior to Him—not to Jesus; not to Mary; not to your local parish "father"—perish the thought. Don't bother confessing to pseudo "fathers" who should know the teaching of YAHshua that none of us should call any human "Father" as a religious title. Especially those who are anything but honorable "fathers of the faith" due to their own sexual aberrations.
Yes, I know that the unmarried apostle Paul referred to himself as a "father" in the honorable sense of acting as a "symbolic" father to the "child-like" membership of several churches of GOD.
But Paul followed the proper tradition of having people address him by his "first name"—Paul—not "Father Paul". And no human, not even YAHshua—has any right to have other humans call him "Holy Father"—a title that applies only to GOD, the Father.
THE PERILS OF PAUL
The apostle Paul became the epitome of the fulfillment of that judgment by YAHshua, in being required to personally suffer as much as he had attempted to make new converts suffer to "prove" his "super-righteous supremicism".
YOUR SALVATION DECISION WILL BE MADE BY GOD—NOT YOU!
The belief, or lack of belief, of any human in anything during a person's one and only human life does not compel, or require GOD to execute an automatic death penalty at any time. Such a concept is simply insane! GOD does not "love righteousness" soooo much that He is willing to throw anyone into ever-burning hellfire because of some unknown, and unfulfilled "requirement", or collection of "requirements" imposed by Protestants, or Catholics.
Scripture verses that have been used for hundreds of years to support the belief that some humans will be thrown into Hell-fire, may be "true", as originally written, but only to the degree that they are illuminated by many other clear scriptures that reveal the true will of GOD, and His Angel, YAHshua the Christ.
All of the scriptures that seem to support eternal life in hell-fire are easily "extinguishable" by parallel scriptures that make them comprehensible and sensible. Those scriptures will be fully explored, and explained in future publications.
No "Jew" or "Gentile" has ever missed his, or her chance to be saved because he, or she didn't know about Jesus Christ, or couldn't believe any of the misrepresentations of Jesus Christ preached by those who don't know what they're talking about.
Only when one meets Jesus Christ, or YAHshua the Messiah, face-to-face in a final individualized judgment after a fully dimensional visionary resurrection, "in the Spirit", will it be required of any person to "believe in Jesus" as a "personal Savior". There will be no "hearsay" conversions at that time. It will be the time when all "men" will come to a knowledge of the truth and will be given ample proof that Jesus is who he says he is.
At that time it will be a simple matter for each individual to confess one's belief to YAHshua himself, that he has power from GOD to save anyone from a future punishment for any past sin.
No one is required to confess to any other human, anything about one's personal belief in Jesus Christ. Why would that be a requirement for confirming one's belief? GOD knows whether anyone's belief is genuine, or not. And mere "belief" doesn't automatically "save" a person anyway. No one is saved permanently until there is the existence of a reality, in the form of a "Lake of Fire" in which one is in danger of being "lost"—or more accurately—"deleted", or annihilated.
WHAT IS SALVATION?
Often a "salvation tract" will use the verse regarding the supposed necessity of "confessing one's belief" as a "kicker" that will confirm that one believes that all one has to do is "believe in Jesus" and repeat a phrase to some human, and "thou shalt be saved". But the assumption that "thou shalt be saved" begs the question—from what? Are you being "saved" from being able to control your own life without interference from a preacher telling you what "Gaahduh!" requires you to do? Which usually involves giving money, for some reason.
It is true that you can't "earn" salvation from GOD by performing ritualistic religious "dead works" in any form—whether "Jewish", Catholic, Protestant, or the "works" of any other Church—you name it. Sitting in a Church every Sunday, warming a "pew" with your butt is often a "dead work". Salvation will ultimately depend on simple faith in YAHshua's authority from GOD to literally save one from eternal annihilation of body and soul after a final judgment.
Although much of the "busy work" that some preachers assign to their "flocks" falls into the category of unnecessary "dead works"—the scriptures say that while we are still alive in this physical World, simple faith without "works" is a dead faith. "Works" in this context, are "good works"—not useless religious "works" that help no one and simply waste time that could be spent helping someone.
GOD expects good works from believers, and he will reward believers for doing good, useful works in this life. Often the satisfaction of doing something good for someone is its own reward. "Charity begins at home". It is better to give than to receive—unless you are a preacher counting the receipts of contributions to the Church's latest "building fund".
Good works—not useless ritualistic "works"—will result in rewards after physical death, into eternity—primarily freedom to enjoy the infinite potential pleasures that will become available once all former humans have been transformed into spirit beings capable of enjoying "Life" as GOD, and His Angel enjoy it.
FINDING THE "INSIDE TRACK" TO SALVATION
If the "easy believism" presented on most tracts had any merit; that system of "preaching the Gospel" would have made YAHshua's difficult, and almost fruitless ministry, unnecessary. He could have just covered the Earth with "salvation leaflets" growing from trees—especially fig trees—and saved everyone a lot of grief caused by ignorance of the "mini-theology" portrayed on tracts.
Imagine how "fruitful" the withered fig-tree could have been if it had been covered with "mini-salvation-leaflets". It still would have been "unfruitful", because Christian mini-leaflets fail to reveal "the Way, the Truth, and the Life".
Perhaps the handing out of tracts, or the littering of doorways with them, or the unexplained dumping of complete "Gospels of John" out of airplanes over "foreign" countries , is not seen as such a beneficial endeavor by GOD. Why not dump a copy of the "Gospel of Malachi" on those who have to clean up the mess, as if it's the day after "New Year's Eve".
Well, at least it's "good news", or "gospel" to those who won't be burned to ashes. Notice that the "wicked", who will have had three and a half years of opportunity to choose a way of life other than idolatrous evil, will be burned to ashes—not condemned to an eternal life as an ever-sizzling human "shish kebab"; or a never-purchased "tube steak" "sweating like a pig-dog"—a "pork-products" frankfurter—rolling around for days under a heat-lamp in the local "get food and gas fast Quick Shop", instead of being able to "roll around Heaven all day".
Perhaps the premise of instant, do-it-yourself "salvation", is not really what GOD considers true "Salvation". He has no reason to save anyone after death because a person signed his name on the back of a tract.
Don't be distracted by the "wrong side" of tracts—the side that misconstrues truly revealing verses into misleading irrelevance because of loss of context. Even GOD, the Father couldn't reduce the revelations in the entire Bible so they would fit on a 3 x 5" leaflet with room to spare. Go to the Bible and start learning the Way to the Truth about the one who can give you eternal Life.
WHY DOES GOD LOVE "THE WORLD"?
GOD loves our World, because it is a Universal showcase of all He has been creating for our "human World". And He "loves" especially, the potential of those who are the focus of His attention in this World—humans—to whom He wants to give access to Life as He has created it—for His own self-generated pleasure, and for the future "instinctive" pleasure of all who will satisfy a very minimal requirement—either now, or during their final judgment.
That requirement is not a simple agreement with what you think, or what someone else thinks a handful of scriptures say; or signing your name on the back of a tract and telling someone you did it. What a pathetic miniaturization of the concept of spirit salvation that is.
It won't be, and can't be a tiny printed tract that will result in true spirit salvation for the enormously vast majority of all humans who have ever been born. That will happen when virtually all humans are given a full opportunity to understand the salvation of their spirits during a personal, face-to-face introduction to the only supernatural Being authorized to represent GOD the Father in the form of a singular personality—His Angel.
After 4,000 years of human history, the Angel of the LORD GOD became the only supernaturally begotten physical, or mortal "Son of Man", and "Son of GOD". He has now been tested, and trained, and is ready to become the long-awaited Messiah, or Christ of the World—the only Being authorized by GOD, to provide access and union with GOD, his Father, and in due time, the GOD and Spirit Father of all who will accept their opportunity to become one of His Holy Spirit "begotten", and ultimately, "born again" children.
Don't get lost "on the wrong side of the tracts" that offer empty, instant, imaginary "salvation" to those who believe that's all GOD has to offer. The way of salvation is narrow, and few find it—but you have begun to find it. And if you "follow" it to the end—"thou shalt be saved".
