THIS Administration IS ABOUT what Christ IS, and of what HE HAS DONE.

Greetings to All,

First I would like to show you something with the number 40. Let us look at a few verses:

[4] For yet seven days, {{{and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights;}}} and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

[35] {{{And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years,}}} until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.

[18] And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into the mount: {{{and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.}}}

[28] And {{{he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights}}}; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

[13] And {{{the LORD's anger was kindled against Israel, and He made them wander in the wilderness forty years}}}, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed.

[4] David was thirty years old when he began to reign, {{{and he reigned forty years}}}.

[10] {{{Forty years long was I grieved with this generation,}}} and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:

[13] And {{{He [Christ] was there in the wilderness forty days}}}, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.

There seems to be a testing time or a season given to be under probation for a period of 40 days and in some cases 40 years. And the time Adam was in the Garden would fall under these same guidelines.... AND the same for Satan. Man today is not under probation but under God's Grace. The Garden was a trial and man was tried, tested and failed. Satan and Angels before Adam had failed under their trial. And the lesson learned is apart from the Creator, no created being could stand. By Christ, the Creator, all things not only exist; but in Him only can they consist (Col. 1:16,17).

The test was the Word of God. And the question was will man believe God or Satan? And what does Satan say to the woman? "Yea, hath God said" (Gen. 3:1). Satan substituted two lies for what God said. Satan said: "Ye shall be as God" and "Ye shall not surely die". This is the foundation of Satan's old religion given two wings called the Apostasy and it shows its face in every Administration, even this one (2 Thess. 2). Man failed and being ruined and "at enmity with God;" he is not "subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be," and has "no good thing" in him.

Are there teachings of demons in the churches today....???

Satan says >> "ye shall be as gods"

Satan says >> "ye shall not surely die".

Since Cain and Abel there has only been two ways: God's way (Abel) and the way of the world (Cain), which is man's way. One is by faith and the other is by works (man's works). One way is Christ the other way is religion (man-made religion). Our true church standing is, that we are not saved by works, but by grace (Titus 3:5; Rom. 11:6).

The Bible says this: "Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision, for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the Fathers, and that the Gentiles (AFTER Israel's salvation) might glorify God for His mercy" (Rom. 15:8,9). Christ's coming had reference to the Jew and Gentile, not to the founding of a church. The Jews rejected the Kingdom. And the Gentiles have not yet glorified God for His mercy.

A subsequent offer was afterward made by Peter, to whom "the keys of the kingdom" were given (NOT of the Church, BUT of the Kingdom). The Kingdom was again proclaimed in the Acts, and the promise of Christ's return on their national repentance was repeated (Acts 3:19-21). The command to repent was unheeded by the nation and its rulers... and we see a gradual transition taking place, until the final pronouncement of God's rejection of the nation is formally made by Paul in Acts 28:24-28.

It was not until Paul and the Gospel given him... which he calls "my gospel" is there a calling out of Jews and Gentiles and made into a new body called "the Church of God"... in which now "there is neither Jew nor Gentile... but all are one in Christ Jesus"; being baptized into the body of Christ, NOT with the old material element of water, BUT with the new spiritual medium or element of pneuma hagion (Gal. 3:27,28).

All this had been kept SECRET until it was revealed to Paul and made known by the prophets and apostles in "prophetic writings" (Rom. 16:25,26). These are the apostles and prophets of the Spirit that was given and NOT the Old Testament prophets of old. One of the "great" secrets (1 Tim. 3:16; Eph. 5:32), has been revealed... which was "hid in God" (Eph. 3:9).

1 Tim. 3:16 says: "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: He was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." AND Eph. 5:32 "This is a GREAT mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church". NOT the great Kingdom as in the first gospel preached which was rejected BUT a great Mystery, the church which we see is gathered by another gospel... WHICH IS Paul's gospel given him from God.

This administration of the "Church of God" of "the grace of God" and of the "Spirit of God" commenced outwardly by the ministry of Paul... committed formally to him; and inwardly by the revelation of the mystery as further set forth in its fulness in those epistles which he wrote from his prison in Rome: Books are: Eph., Phil. and Col.

This time period is NOT a conversion of the world BUT is a gathering to and formation of the one spiritual Body of Christ. This gospel (Paul's gospel) is NOT preached anywhere else in the Bible and by NO ONE else before Paul. Could being in a "prison" in "Rome" be symbolic for something else??? :-}

In every administration before and after this one we are presently in... is ABOUT man and what HE IS and WHAT HE IS TO DO. THIS administration IS ABOUT what Christ IS, and of what HE has done.

God Bless,
