Qumran – Dead Sea Scrolls
Christ’s Atonement

  1. Suffering Messiah
    • .. his Wisdom [will be great.] He will make atonement for all the children of his generation. He will be sent to all the sons of
    • his [generation]. His word shall be as the word of Heaven and his teaching shall be according to the will of God. His eternal sun shall burn brilliantly.
    • The fire shall be kindled in all the corners of the earth. Upon the Darkness it will shine. Then the Darkness will pass away
    • [from] the earth and the deep Darkness from the dry land. They will speak many words against him. There will be many [lie].
    • They will invent stories about him. They will say shameful things about him. He will overthrow his evil generation
    • and there will be [great wrath]. When he arises there will be Lying and violence, and the people will wander astray [in] his days and be confounded.

Philippians 2:1-4
Christ’s Example of Humility

  1. So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy,
    complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
    Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others ( Philippians 2:1-4)

Isaiah 53
Suffering Messiah

  1. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
    yet he opened not his mouth;
    like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
    and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
    so he opened not his mouth.By oppression and judgment he was taken away;
    and as for his generation, who considered
    that he was cut off out of the land of the living,
    stricken for the transgression of my people?
    ( Isaiah 53:7-8 )
  2. when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
    he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
    the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.  ( Isaiah 53:10 )
  3. And makes intercession for the transgressors. ( Isaiah 53:12 )

 

John 17
The High Priestly Prayer

 

  1. Link
    I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word,
    that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one,
    I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.”  ( John 17:20-24 )

What not to learn

There are foundational and directly applicable words in the Bible and so these are not areas that we can pretend the Bible is silent on:

  1. …not to be easily disconcerted or alarmed by any spirit or message or letter presuming to be from us and alleging that the day of the Lord has already come.
    Let no one deceive you in any way, for it will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness (the son of destruction) is revealed.… ( 2 Thessalonians 2:2 )
  2. No one has ascended into heaven except the One who descended from heaven — the Son of Man. ( John 3:13 )
  3. Dominion Theology
    • Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”  ( John 18:36 )
  4. Signs & Wonders
    • Observable Signs
      • When asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God will not come with observable signs.
      • Nor will people say, ‘Look, here it is,’ or ‘There it is.’   ( Luke 17:20 )
    • Do not go out or chase after them
      • Then He said to the disciples, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it.
        People will tell you, ‘Look, there He is,’ or ‘- Here He is.’ Do not go out or chase after them.
        For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so will be the Son of Man in His day.… ( Luke 17:22 )

 

Discernment

  1. Here is a call for the endurance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
    ( Revelation 14:12 )
  2. Jesus Our Advocate
    …He Himself is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours alone, but also for the sins of the whole world.
    By this we can be sure that we have come to know Him: if we keep His commandments.
    If anyone says, “I know Him,” but does not keep His commandments, he is a liar, and the truth is not in him.… ( 1st John 2:3 )
  3. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers.
    The one who does not love remains in death.
    Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that eternal life does not reside in a murderer.… ( 1st John 3:14 )

 

Closing

I think sometimes people emphasis one aspect of their ministry over another.

But, it is obvious, easy, and in fact straightforward to inspect whether it is a ministry of Love.

Though it may seem out of place, but in the days, weeks, months and years ahead you will ask yourself how people love you… And, prayerfully you will find out, either way, which ways — Even if like Sam Smith,  you will have to find out through “man made teachings and boundaries” { Not in that way – Link }

Though we live in Laodicea, lukewarm still gets spitted out.

Wale, already responded when called out as one of the false prophets, “layaway effort” shouldn’t guise no one.
