Ephesians 2:20, 4:11-12
There are no “celebrities” in the Bible, that is, people who are admired through the distribution of their images. That is evildoing.
There are no lineage or descent in the flesh, after the Resurrection. Before the Resurrection, there was descent among the Israelites in the flesh. After the Resurrection, the Israelite are in the Spirit, and they “reproduce” by the Spirit. That is, by making new believers in Christ.
Therefore, whoever transgress into my car to make descent through me by flesh, they greatly err. And because they transgress against me and teaches others to commit adultery (it doesn’t matter what images are used, some person transgress against me by the body), through the image-making, they will have all the harsher a judgment from God.
Descent in the flesh from any Christian is irrelevant, because Spirit is not handed down by the flesh. So parents who believe in the Spirit could raise kids who are totally unlike them in the Spirit, like Hezeki-Yah raising Manasseh. But there are also good situations, like Asa raising Yehu-Shaphat.
About apostles and prophets:
When Jesus Christ say: “the laws and the prophets” and “Moses and the prophets”,
that’s the Old Covenant equivalent of “apostles and the prophets” in the New Testament.
The Old Testament is proclaimed by, and “founded upon” Moses and the prophets, the New Covenant is proclaimed by, and founded upon the Apostles and the prophets.
The prophets are still the same: Samuel through Malachi.
The Apostles replace the position of Moses.
Who is Moses? Moses is the man who gave the Old Testament to the people. Among men, he is the starting-representative of the Old Covenant.
[not even] the First testament (Old Covenant) was dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,
saying: “This is the blood of the testament, which God has enjoined unto you.”
Moreover, he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of ministry.
And it came to pass, when Yeshua (Jesus) had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples: “Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover …”
And as they were eating, Yeshua (Jesus) took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said: “Take and eat, this is my body.”
And He took the cup and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying : “Drink ye all of it, for this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins…”
Matthew 26:1-2 , 26:26-28
Pedros (Peter), an apostle of Yeshua (Jesus) Christ, to the [Christians] … [chosen] according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Yeshua(Jesus) Christ: grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
I Peter 1:1-2
For this reason, Moses is the man who handed down the Old Testament.
And Yeshua (Jesus) the Christ is the man who handed down the New Testament.
Jesus Christ is the chief Apostle.
Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our [faith], Christ Yeshua (Jesus)
For this reason, the Old Testament community was founded upon Moses (and the words that he wrote in the first five books of the Bible), and also upon the words of God spoken by the prophets from Samuel to Malachi.
The New Testament community was founded upon Yeshua (Jesus) Christ, and the Words that He spoke.
[the Church is] built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets…
Jesus Christ is only one apostle, so who are the other apostles?
At the end of the world, after all the history is done, the number of apostles are counted:
and the wall of [heavenly Jerusalem] had twelve foundations, and in them the name of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
This was the final tallying of the entire human history. Thus, the total number of apostles from the beginning of the Church until the last day, is 12 (not counting the Christ Himself).
Who can these 12 be, other than the 12 apostles mentioned in the Gospel (minus Judas, plus Paul)?
So no man can claim to be an apostle, for there are only 12 apostles of Christ (plus Christ Himself).
It is not possible to claim “apostolic ministry” because an apostle has to be apostle of Jesus Christ. Yet there are only 12 and their names are set, so that’s not possible. And if people then declare themselves apostles of other things, what is that then? Apostles have to be servants of Christ, or they are nothing.
Thus, there are only 12 apostles (plus Christ) for all Christians, for past, present and future. And all of them walked the earth in the first century, two thousand years ago.
It is not possible to re-appoint apostles (the Bible forbids it), there then is nothing to govern a world-wide church assembly. Any such thing is dangerous, because of the social status.
And the Bible is clear that near the end times, most churches will fall away from Christ.
Therefore, it is dangerous and vile to try to make any world-wide combination of churches, or world-wide rule over churches, because we are nearing the end of the world, and it is not good for the clean and unclean to be combined in one body.
Even if any world-wide combination of churches does manage to gather a series of good churches, when end time nears, many of them will fall away.
II Thessalonians 2:1-12, II Timothy 3:1-5,
many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many. Because [evildoing] shall abound, the love of many shall [turn] cold. But he who endures till the end shall be saved.
So that when end time arrives, maybe only 1% of churches will still stand in Christ.
So it is really fruitless to try to make any world-government of churches, because earth will turn more and more evil, and perverted churches will be majority in the future (as it is already turning towards, in America, and definitely in Europe. Not in China, hopefully not ever).
So the churches of different continents should remain organizationally separate, each church having their chief pastors. They must not get absorbed into any world-organization or even multi-national organization of churches.
What is the end?
The end is when the Anti-Christ arrives. Probably some type of image cult who will invade people’s bodies (and my oppression is only a preview of that, I think). And that abominable image, which will invade people’s bodies, will stand inside people and proclaim itself above all gods, and proclaim itself god.
And the Anti-Christ will rule the earth as a pagan king (hopefully not all of it, who knows), and will cause much tribulation against Christians.
The Anti-Christ has not happened yet, I think it will happen in the latter parts of this century, or maybe early parts of next century.
Then after the devastations of the Anti-Christ (during that time, most who claim faith in Christ will fall away), Yeshua the Christ will descend from heaven with angelic armies and judge the world.
The Word of our LORD makes it clear:
- history of the world (nations/kingdoms under-the-heaven) is irrelevant: Matthew 24:6-8
(and I now understand why the LORD would say so.
because ever since people started making images after 1453, photographic images after 1860, film-images after 1900, and TV-images after 1950s, people have become more and more perverted, more and more unholy, more and more despising of the Word of Christ.
So it really doesn’t matter what happens to the powers of the world, which nation gains more power or more territory, regardless of all that, people are becoming worse and worse all over the world.
- then faith in Christ will become rarer and rarer, and fake Christians will be more and more. And true believers in Christ (to whom the LORD was speaking) will get persecuted.
[the end of the world shall not come], except there is a falling away [from Christ] first …
II Thessalonians 2:3
… and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my Name’s sake.
But he who endures to the end, the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations…
- Then the end of the world comes, when the Anti-Christ arrives as world-king.
… then shall the end come.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Dani-EL the prophet, stand in the holy place (whoso reads, let him understand).
since the understanding was meant for later people, who would acquire it from reading, this means the Anti-Christ did not come in the first century, so it was not “Nero Caesar”.
[and after the falling away], that man of sin [shall get] revealed, the son of perdition who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
II Thessalonians 2:3-4
We know that God no longer dwells in temples made by human hands since the ending of the Old Covenant. In the New Covenant, the temple of God is the human body/mind
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
II Corinthians 6:16
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
I Corinthians 6:19
Therefore, it is evident that the Anti-Christ, when he sits “in the temple of God”, it will be an invasion of human bodies/minds, and it would be all over the world. And the Anti-Christ will oppress people all over the world by invading their bodies, and proclaiming himself god, and exalting himself inside people’s bodies (I prefer not to think about that, and hopefully it’s after my lifetime).
And [the Anti-Christ] shall do according to his [intent], and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against [YeHoWaH] the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished, so that was is determined shall be done.
He shall not regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god, for he shall magnify himself above all.
But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces, and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory, and he shall cause them to rule over many and shall divide the land for gain.
The good news, is that there would be a “king of the south” and “king of the north”, and the Anti-Christ is “king of the north”, and people from the south would resist.
For this reason, I opposed Russia entering the EU, because “king of the north” would either be based off the European Union in a neo-pagan Roman Empire, or it would be based off the United States, or even in some pagan-union of both.
For this reason, I am of the strong emphasis that Africa, Latin America and India enter the United Nations security council, so it would be Africa, Latin America, Russia, China, India, Britain, France, United States.
Africa has 1/6 of world population
Latin America has 1/6 of world population
India has 1/6 of the world population
China-Russia have more than 1/6 of the world population
And I tried very hard to get Russia to be “king of the east”, rather than dragged into NATO (which is probably one of the precursors of king of the north). But CSTO is from the east and can add India and half-add China (better if China doesn’t go to war at all). I really like Russia and Russians (and Ukrainians, Belarussians), and want them to be with the south, in the future.
I also oppose the Eastern Orthodox church dragged into the Catholic church for this reason. Because Catholic church (no longer a religious organization, but a real-estate holder of lands and buildings) is centered inside the EU.
I don’t have high hopes for the EU or the United States for the far future.
Of course, the most important thing is to preach the Gospel and teach all Christians to remain godly, since the LORD did not have much attention upon the development of history under-the-heavens.
- And after the time of the Anti-Christ (unclear how many years), then Jesus Christ will arrive from heaven, and that would be final judgment.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken:
and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn…
If Christ’s sign is in the heavens and He is coming back immediately, then why would “all the tribes of the earth mourn”? Evidently, during the reign of the Anti-Christ, most population of the earth would have fallen away from the LORD, thus they are not joyful that Christ is coming back.
… and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his [chosen] from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Note: Yeshua (Jesus), when He arrives, He will descend from the heavens directly. There will be no birth as a child again. He is seated, even now, as an adult at the right-hand of God in Heaven, and when the time is, He shall descend directly as leader of angelic armies.
And when [Yeshua the Christ was done speaking], while they looked, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight.
And while they looked steadfastly towards heaven as He went up, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said: “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up to the heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in [similar] manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”
Actions of Apostles 1:9-11
So the original topic was: that there are 12 apostles only, plus Christ. Since they no longer walk the earth, the churches are to submit to Christ and the Apostles by remembering and following their teachings, which is the Bible. When the churches remember and follow the teachings of the Bible, then they are governed from Heaven by Christ and they are led by the 12 apostles, whose purpose in leading was to make all people godly.
I already wrote about how the Apostles of New Testament are in the position of Moses of Old Testament.
When referring to the Old Testament, the Word of God often said “Moses and the prophets” or “the Law of Moses and the prophets”.
When referring to the New Testament, the Word of God says “apostles and prophets.”
The apostles replaced Moses.
The prophets are unchanged, still Samuel till Malachi (plus John the Baptist, and some others written in the Bible)
And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.
Action of Apostles 28:23
(note: “lodging” describes physical house, where one person can invite other people. For a house is made for more than one person to dwell. The body of a person is a “lodging”, but only for that one person, and if the person is female, perhaps part of the body can be shared, but never inside the body or the skull. So, whether male or female, if persons other than that one-person to whom the body is assigned at birth, come inside the body, it is called demonic possession, or some other type of demonic presence.)
For all the prophets and the law prophesied until [Yohanan].
And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
And look at the words from Pedros (Peter):
That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour
II Peter 3:2
It is clear that the prophets (when mentioned with apostles) refers to those prophets of the Old Testament, who have a piece in the Scripture.
[the Church is] built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
So, don’t try to be an apostle, because those positions are all taken, and there are only 12, plus Jesus Christ.
Don’t try to be a prophet upon whom the church is founded, because those are Samuel through Malachi (adding, Moses, Elijah, Elisha, Enoch).
God can make people with prophetic gifts as in book of Corinthians, but these are not the same as the “apostles and prophets” upon whom the church is founded.
There were only two prophets who led the people of God in an official capacity, Moses, and Samuel.
That has not happened since, and in the New Testament, the people of God were led by their obedience to Christ (in remembering and following the Bible), and then by the 12 apostles. The prophets had no role in leadership.
Since there are no more apostles, the remaining functions are:
And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
1 Corinthians 12:28
And he gave some, apostles; and some prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
I don’t see why “gift of healings” would be an office, so 1 Corinthians 12:28 talks about functions rather than hierarchy.
Ephesians 4:11 could be talking about offices, however, without apostles, the next in line would be the prophets, and as already written, prophets do not lead churches, their role is to proclaim the holiness of the LORD, denounce sins, and exhort people to repent back to God.
So the “five-fold” ministry is invalid, (having all five offices of Ephesians 4;11), because there are no more apostles living on the earth, and the total is only 12, plus Christ.
Thus, there can only be a “four fold” ministry of prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.
And since the purpose of being a prophet is to denounce sin, proclaim holiness and exhort people to repent back to God, I don’t see why prophecy cannot be combined with teaching. After all, it is written:
He who speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself; but he who prophesies edifies the church.
1 Corinthians 14:4
The duty of a prophet is NOT to do augury or imitate astrology! It is also not to predict the future. Notice that all the prophets spoke about the future coming of Christ, and each prophet when he spoke was also given a piece/chapter of the Bible.
After Christ came, we have the entire Bible, so there is no more anything to expect for the future (other than end of the world and judgment, and about that we don’t need extra information). Our duty is to live godly now, and obey the Bible and know it, and follow it.
So there is no more future to predict, because Christ already arrived.
And the Word of God is given us that we would live godly by remembering it, and following it. No future event is relevant compared to that.
All that there is to know about the future, is already given in the Word of God. We don’t need any more information about the future.
Do notice that in all my commentaries about the future, I merely explained out of the Word of God.
So the idea that prophets would be people who are “Christian equivalent” of astrologers and augury, is ridiculous.
And considering the decayed conditions of the Church in the West (this isn’t much of it at all), no one can be a prophet, who is not severely denouncing nearly all people about some ungodly practice or other.
It is not possible that prophets lead churches, not in the Church of the West, at least. This is because all those leaders try to please the people, and try to increase the numbers of the people (rather than increase in godliness! as the Spirit of God wants). So it is not possible to be a prophet, and have a high social status position. This is because nearly all are doing some ungodly thing or other, in the Church of the West, and whoever is exhorting people to turn back to God (that is the summary of the duties of a prophet!) must be faithful to God, and denounce this evil practice and that corrupt practice.
Thus, whoever has smooth tongue in the Church of the West (and not known for denouncing sins), he cannot be a prophet. Those people falsely claim to be prophets (and some even falsely claim to be apostles!).
Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain.
That said, prophet should be a role, like teacher or evangelist. It should not be an office. None of the prophets in the Old Testament had a governing position. None of the few people-with-prophetic-gifts mentioned in the New Testament had a governing position. They merely lived as servants of God.
Since the main role of a prophet is to get people to repent back to God, that is a combination of teaching and evangelism.
Thus, there should only be pastors, teachers (including those with prophetic gifts), and evangelists.
The apostles and prophets, on whom the Church is founded, they rule by the Word of God that they have written and spoken, preserved in the Bible.
I am a servant of Christ given prophetic gifts by God, I am not among the “apostles and prophets”, those people have either a chapter of the Bible named after them, or lived in the first century.
My gift is this: that I obey God and denounce sins and tell people to repent back to God, even though that is not popular to hear.
I don’t see how that is different from what all Christians are ordered to do.
There is one more thing: sometimes, a prophet is raised by God to give a situational message. This was in the cases of Ezekiel, Yonah and Hosea.
Yohah demonstrated with his body what would happen with Christ’s death and resurrection after three days.
Hosea demonstrated with his body the unfaithfulness of the children of Israel.
In the case of Ezekiel, he essentially demonstrated with his own body the siege of the people of God and the end times of them.
I received mainly the 1st chapter of Jeremiah, with additions from Ezekiel.
My body is currently a demonstration of what would happen in many decades, the end times of the people of God, and the Satanic tribulations when the Anti-Christ will rule many people. The Anti-Christ in the future will invade people’s bodies, but unlike the United States’ spies of now, the Anti-Christ will exalt himself as god and it will not be done to one person but to all populations under his control.
As Yohanan the Baptist received the ministry of Elijah, but his life developed differently, so have I received the ministry of Jeremiah and some of Ezekiel, and my life would also develop differently, and I do expect in a good way (in addition to getting delivered, and that part was given unto me with the Eternal Spirit resting upon me).
Jeremiah preached an entire lifetime, and I expect to preach an entire lifetime as well. And that’s my main ministry.
This makes abundantly clear that there is no descent in the flesh in the Bible, neither from Christ, nor from others.
This is to silence some evil people who think that they are obtaining something – other than judgment from God – by assaulting/plundering my body at night.
I also have no particularities in the flesh, being from a peasant family on the father’s side, and an average-income worker’s family from the mother’s side.
Other than wanting that all become Christians, I have no responsibility for whatever made of my flesh without my permission (as much as my DNA can be extracted out of a piece of skin, and then added to some cell). That was done by other people’s will (volonté), without my volonté. So if at night that brain-aggression device makes me unconscious, and someone grabs my hand and grasp my fingers (but I am unconscious) and use my inanimate fingers to type, that is done without my volonté, it was done totally by other people’s volonté, thus that is none of my responsibility.
some commentaries about mind-invasion:
the LORD only commanded me to speak, that is, to speak with my mouth, words that I do authorize.
Any imaginations (voluntary or random) in my mind, are not communicated by me.
Any thoughts (voluntary or random) in my mind, are not communicated by me.
If they are communicated by some Satanic devices against my permission, they are NOT statements from me, but they are statements made by the mouth of those Satanic devices, and the people installing them. None of those count as communication from me! And since many of those are definitely things that I would NOT communicate, these Satanic devices (and associated screens/broadcasting devices), these Satanic devices are false speakers.
And the LORD is displeased at any person taking those to be prophecies or things to follow, or things to look at.
For the very looking upon it is evil, considering that they are statements made by Satanic devices, and not me!
Only words by my mouth (while conscious and not brain-assaulted), and words written by my hands (ditto), these are statements made (spoken) by me.
All other things are not statements by me.
And it’s evil to try to pretend that those are statements by me, even assigning “holiness” to them, or try to discern auguries or omens in them. You are to trust the LORD, and not seek auguries or omens.
What are auguries and omens?
Put it simply, they are visuals that are assigned double-speakings by traditions of men. In Roman times, people assigned double-speakings by the visuals of animal entrails, and depending on what double-speakings it invoked, they decided that the future would be this way or that way, merely based on a double-speaking that was assigned by men (and irrelevant to men of other places, so it’s all the more untrue. For what is true must be true everywhere).
And you are making a pagan-Roman religion of drawing out my entrails, the entrails of my head, and make augury with it, based on double-speakings from their culture (even including entertainment culture), or from quirks that are only available in English words (and for example, Chinese people have completely different words, making all double-speakings in English totally irrelevant. So all of that mind-imagery is false and wrong).
There shall not be found among you any who makes his son or daughter pass through fire, or who uses divination (augury), or an observer of the times (using number of the time/date for augury), or an enchanter, or a witch (who are male as well as female).
As for broadcasting my thoughts, I have been so assaulted with false accusations (often beyond the most Satanic thing that I could think of), and because I am constantly under the looks of people who hold on to those, often my mind would wonder: “what thoughts think those people intently gaze-piercing me?” And since the false accusations were often beyond the most Satanic thing that I could think of, my attempt to “guess” what others were intending or thinking has to be as evil as possible in order to approach accuracy. Thus, my mind often “guess” the most evil thoughts about me, which I “guess” that other people would be having towards me, towards what I am doing, or towards I am thinking.
But my “guess” would be displayed, and other people would take it as some original statement made by me.
It is not. It’s merely the most evil misconception or the most evil distortion of me/my actions/my actual thoughts that I could come up with. It’s what I “guess” other people would be thinking.
But people would take it as my thoughts, because my “guess” about other people is broadcast together with my actual thoughts.
Thus, the broadcasting of my mind is a false speaker against me, because those are NOT statements that I make or would make. In fact, they are things that I extremely resent. But they are broadcast as “my thoughts”, so that if I try to guess what evil the other people must be thinking about me, then that evil is proclaimed (NOT by me) by the Satanic transmitting device.
And people would listen to the Satanic transmitting device, and they would get those evil ideas, whether they originally had the idea (my “guess” being correct” or whether they originally did not think that way (my “guess” being extra) but because I thought about it, they acquire it through the mouth of the Satanic transmitter, and they actually add it to their collection of evil ideas or evil expectations against me.
So the Satanic transmitter of any images in my mind, and the Satanic transmitter of any thoughts in my mind, these are false speakers against me.
I am not the one making these statements, because I never authorized them to be pronounced.
Instead, the Satanic devices proclaim them, and grievously oppress my life.
They are slanderers against me, because they slander me by proclaiming that I (rather than those devices) proclaimed the statements.
I never proclaimed those statements, for they are NOT statements for people or for an audience, they are not even statements, but various functioning of my mind.
(some evil person just said “no problem”)
