Matthew 1:1

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1  This book marks the beginning of the New Testament, which alludes to the new covenant (contract) of God to man, ushered in by Jesus Christ. This long promised new covenant was not only to Israel, but was extended to all the nations of the earth. Jesus came and strengthened the law: He changed "an eye for an eye," to "turn the other cheek;" and "hate your enemies," to "bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you." He made adultery, not just the act, but the thought in the heart. He made murder, not just the act, but the anger and hate in your heart. He told us not to repay injury or insult. He told us that restraint of sin was not enough, but that we were defiled by what was in our hearts; so our hearts must be cleansed of the desire or inclination to sin.

The good news that Jesus announced to all was the availability of God's heart and soul purifying grace to free us from the bondage of sin and enter the kingdom of heaven while on earth and forever, becoming a new creature in union with God and Christ. The Spirit of Grace both reveals your sins and then removes them, just like Jesus said 'repent,' and also healed. These wonderful, but forgotten, promises were made possible by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, whose ignored warningsteachings, and promises, were treated with contempt by Israel then, and by Christendom today. Without any fear of God, Christendom ignores his teachings, his commands, and his warnings; thus they deny him as Lord and Master. To create their false Christianity, the blind guides of Christianity have taken a few verses out of context, while ignoring countless others, including those that specifically state the exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions of salvation; they also overlook that every man will be judged on his works and words.

To help you understand the interrelationships of belief, hope, faith, revelation, the cross, grace, and works, they are summarized below in progression:

  1. Many have had a spiritual experience, hearing and/or seeing by revelation the existence of the invisible God, who then establishes a hunger to come to Jesus for more. If those who have not yet had a spiritual experience would make God a sincere promise that they will do their best to seek His will for their life, they will also be given a hunger to come to Jesus for more for God would have all men to seek Him and be saved.
  2. We seize the hope of the true gospel: that we can become free of sin, enter the kingdom while on earth, and attain union with God and Christ. Hope motivates us to then seek the heart and soul purifying grace of God by waiting on him, listening for Him, watching for Him, and obeying Him. When we obey, we have done his will on earth as it is in heaven, denying our will — this is the inward cross of self-denial. We are saved by hope for without it, we would not fervently seek God. From the Word of the Lord within: "Hope releases the power of God to change you. There is no hope for anyone outside the power of God."
  3. By faith we believe the teachings and commands we hear to be true; by faith we believe them to come from the Son of God; by faith we obey the commands we hear, and we keep the teachings we hear, the first ones being repentance from our sinful conduct. Faith is the gift of God and is to hear the Word in your heart to obey, that is the word of faith the Apostles preached. We obey his commands we hear, which are works we then do in our love for God.
  4. It is grace that teaches us, charges us, and then removes even the desire for that sin from us. Each teaching, command, or exposure of the secret sins in our heart is a revelation. With each revelation our faith increases, and our hope increases, motivating us to spend even more time waiting on God's commands and teachings. We also experience the gradual, miraculous release from sins, validating our efforts and motivating us to persevere to the end.
  5. After grace has redeemed us from all sin and purified us, then we see Jesus to bring us our salvation and eternal life in God. By grace we are saved, (delivered from all sin); saved by grace through faith. Having been delivered from all sin, Jesus becomes our true Lord, Master, and King, supplying thoughts, our words to speak, and ordering our works to be done — to His and the Father's glory. We are translated into the kingdom of God while on earth, to be there forever; and then we enter union with Christ and God, junior but up to God, enjoying fellowship with them.
  6. We, the same as all men, are judged on our works and words, not on whether or not we have a belief in Jesus, which is only the beginning, Step 1 above.

All the terms that describe Christian success: in Christ, in the name, one with Christ, in the kingdom, redemption, sanctification, reconciliation, restoration, righteousness, justification, eternal life, and salvation, are to be witnessed within your heart, seen by the eyes of your heart in the light; none are to be assumed or presumed from reading about them or talking about them.

In reading this Bible, you will see the scriptures' hidden, wondrous beauty. This Bible and the entire web site's primary purpose is to help you seize and hold the true hope of the gospel: to become entirely free of sin, to hear and see your beloved Jesus, to enter the kingdom of God while still on earth, and to become united as one with Christ and God as children of the light while walking in the light; John 14 and John 17 detail the promise of union with God in His kingdom while still on the earth. From the Word of the Lord within: "Without our promises the soul is grieved; with them the soul settles down to a vigilant tribute to the Lord."

"The Father is in you all, Christ is in you, and the Kingdom of Heaven is in you; there, in your hearts, is where you will find them all. Know him there searching your hearts, and find him there trying your minds and hearts; incline your ears, and give ear to him there, who will render to everyone of you according to your words and works whether they are good or evil," (by George Fox). BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD. Psalm 46:10. From the Word of the Lord within: "He awaits you."

Romans 1:1

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 Romans is the most misunderstood book in the Bible; it is the basis for most, not all, of the ridiculous doctrine in Christianity for those who believe in Jesus, such as: there is no law, there is no sin, grace is instant, you are justified because you believe, you have the righteousness of Christ because you believe, you are in Christ and therefore not subject to condemnation, etc. Peter warned us that Paul's letters were easily misunderstood by those who have not been directly taught by the Holy Spirit. As Peter said:

Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, as he does in all his letters, speaking in them of these things. There are some things in his letters that are hard to understand, which those who are unlearned and unstable wrest [twist] to their own destruction, as they also do the other scriptures. Therefore, beloved, since you know these things beforehand, beware lest you also, being led away by the error of the wicked, fall away, 2 Pet 3:15-17.

And the error of the wicked is to tell you: 1) that it is impossible for you to become free of sin; 2) that Jesus did it all, there is nothing left for you to do; 3) that grace covers all your sins; 4) and that you will go to heaven when you die in your sins as long as you believe in Jesus, (or as the Catholics say, as long as you lead a good life). As you read this book, it has much commentary and many footnotes to debunk all the fables of false Christianity to justify their lusts, created by the church that adulterated with the Roman emperors to establish the false doctrines that Christianity, (Protestant and Catholic), still embraces — thus to be the Whore of Babylon.

The source of all the confusion is the definition of faith that justifies, makes righteous, redeems, sanctifies, and provides salvation. There are two faiths, both with Christ as the object:

  1. to concur with history in the Bible that Jesus was the son of God, born of a virgin, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, etc.; that is outward Bible-faith,
  2. to hear the Word of God, which word is in your heart to obey this is the word of faith that the Apostles preached. Hearing and obeying Jesus speak to you from within your heart is operational faith, inward faith, faith given to you by Jesus himself. With persistent obedience to the commands heard from God within your heart, this faith within justifies; purifies, redeems, makes righteous, sanctifies, and saves; to give you peace, joy, and righteousness in union and fellowship with Christ and the Father— this is to see and listen to your beloved, living a holy life that pleases Him.

The blind guides of Christendom, with learning from colleges and man, but without learning from the Holy Spirit, taking a few of this book's verses and ingoring countless others, claim there is no longer any sin because the law has supposedly been done away for anyone who believes in Jesus, (the Bible-faith above); they conveniently overlook the New Testaments' many warnings of sin that completely disqualify you for salvation or heaven, click to see. They also overlook that every man will be judged on his works and words, click to see. Yes, there is a difference between good and evil; yes there is still sin; yes there are moral laws on the heart of every man, by which all men will be judged, and which include the moral core of the Mosaic law: love your neighbor as you love yourself; don't steal; don't commit adultery; don't lie; don't covet, (to covet is to lust, to want something more — covetousness is idolatry); don't murder; and honor your father and mother; every man in the world has these laws written on their heart, and if you continue to sin, every man will receive indignation and wrath from God. Christendom became so confused between works of the law and the moral laws, (which are included in the law on every man's heart), that Christendom threw out all laws. From the Word of the Lord within: "They would have no laws. The new law became unrighteousness."

Paul was in a constant battle with Jews who insisted Christians must be circumcised, or not eat certain foods, or do no work on the seventh day, or celebrate Jewish festivals, or tithe, — works of the law. This created confusion, so in his writings Paul emphasizes how those works of the law count for nothing, that only faith in Jesus Christ counted. But we must exercise that faith to grow until we are led by the Spirit: we must sit in humble silence and wait on God, watch, listen for His spoken commands, which are Spirit and impart the life of God to us. With our obedience to heard commands, the Spirit circumcises our heart so that the body of sin is put off; then and only then has the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made us free from the law of sin and death.From the Word of the Lord within: "There are no laws when you are under complete control of the spirit; you walk in love in obedience as prompted — you don't walk in restricted flesh." but you can only walk under complete control of the Spirit after you have crucified your sinful nature on the inward cross of self denial. Until your sinful nature has been crucified to then receive the fruit of the Spirit, including the gift of faith from Christ, you must obey the moral laws, or you will not be successful.

Paul tells us in Gal 5:18, But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. To be led by the Spirit is to hear what the Word from within your heart commands you to do, and then to obey His commands; when you are totally obeying the Spirit in word and deed, a greater measure faith has been gifted to you, and you are no longer subject to the law is your schoolmaster, Gal 3:24-25. The moral core of the law is a part of the law on every man's heart, Rom 2:11-16, by which all men will be judged. From the Word of the Lord within, "until you witness receiving faith from Christ, you are under the law." Paul confirms the same, describing receipt of the fruit of the Spirit, including faith, received after you have mortified the works of the flesh on the inward cross of self-denial through your obedience to commands you hear from within your heart:

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lack of restraint, envies, murders, drunkenness, revelries [partying], and the like; which I warn you before, as I have also told you in times past, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness [or meekness, or humility], and self-control. Against these there is no law.

Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh [the sinful nature] with its passions and desires [lusts and affections]. Gal 5:18-24

Following the doctrines of Christianity, you can be a repeat murderer, a full-time thief, a habitual adulterer, a child rapist, a chronic liar, cheating your neighbor, hating your mother and father, and still be a Christian as long as you believe in Jesus. Is it any wonder why Christianity is held in such contempt today? Christianity has cast the law behind their backs, calling evil good, calling the wicked righteous, while totally ignoring the Bible's many stated exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions of salvation. (Click on each of these exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions to read them for yourselves; they are undeniable and clearly show that Christendom is a hollow shell of the original Christianity of the Apostles and the Bible, substituting heathenish ritual, ceremony, and theater, instead of the cross, purity, cleanliness, righteousness, and holiness.) Christianity tells you that you will be judged on whether or not you believe in Jesus, yet the Bible clearly states at least nine times that every man is judged according to his words and works, be they good or evil.

The errors of Christianity are corrected in the commentary and footnote explanations, drawing on several of the kingdom-dwelling, early Quakers' detailed explanations. Read carefully and you will understand that Paul was speaking of a very holy life, not the sinful lives of Christians today — as Paul gives us the challenge of our lifetime: Therefore having these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Cor 7:1. Paul labored night and day to present every man perfect in Christ Jesus, Acts 20:29-31, Col 1:28, Eph 4:13.

All the terms that describe Christian success: in Christ, in the name, one with Christ, in the kingdom, redemption, sanctification, reconciliation, restoration, righteousness, justification, eternal life, and salvation, are to be witnessed within your heart, seen by the eyes of your heart in the light; none are to be assumed or presumed from reading about them or talking about them.

Pray, read this book carefully to understand the true doctrine and true hope; then, leaving the elementary principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on to perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Heb 6:1.
