Thoughts on the subject
My superfluous beliefs’ will certainly and undoubtedly come, but fortunately only after having properly examined the opinions and actions of scientifically and historically proven authorities;
Please join me, let’s explore…
First we establish proper authority;
1 The Messiah;
[who’s name means [“Yehovah” or “Yahweh“] is our ‘savior or Redeemer’ (“Joshua” is the closest English pronunciation as in “the son of Nun,” Moses’ friend, and understudy as Israel reentered the promised Land fulfilling an over 400 year bygone prediction to the very day!]
. 13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age. 16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
47 All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.
48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to YHVH, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.
49 One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.
50 Thus did all the children of Israel; as YHVH commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
51 And it came to pass the selfsame day, that YHVH did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.
Yehoshua was, is, and always shall be, the best example in the arena of obeying all the commandments in the TORAH all of the time and still ‘being’ a Loving, forgiving, compassionate, sensitive, and knowledgeable Teacher of Love, Truth, Peace and Harmony.
After extensive examination by his peers over the last 3 years of his time here on Earth. He was Proven to be wise above and beyond all other scholars in matters of justice, scriptural knowledge intergraded with Faith, and finally in matters of social and civic duties and responsibilities.
[[Typographically] that “inspection” was fulfilling the priests’
“responsibilities” concerning the qualifications of the proxy Sacrifice
requiring them examined and found “to be a young and unblemished ”…]
Even from a very young age they found Him to be…
46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
49 And he said unto them,
How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
As an adult he was ‘cross examined often and always although there are more, for now I am only offering these few…
28 …Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her. 29 Yahshua answered and said unto them,
Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of YHVH. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of YHVH in heaven.
31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead,
have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by YHVH, saying,
32 I am the Almighty of Abraham, and the Almighty of Isaac, and the Almighty of Jacob? YHVH is not the Almighty of the dead, but of the living.
33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.
He answers the lawyer as to which is the first and greatest commandment
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 said unto him, Thou shalt love the YHVH your Mighty One with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
and silences the Pharisees about the Messiah
41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Yahshua asked them, 42 Saying, What think ye of Messiah? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David. 43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Adonai, saying, 44 YHVH said unto my Master, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 45 If David then call him Master, how is he his son?
46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
Not only examined in close scrutiny but able to field inquiry in any subject expertly and to the point that the opposition was confounded, astonished and finally silenced due to the inability to find a subject he could not master or form a question he could not ansewer!
13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
Verified to be far more legitimate than any religious figure throughout history due to his
Absolute dedication to living and training others in the words and commands of the Father, and His exclusively unique accomplishments by the Power of the Fathers Righteous Spirit right in front of myriads of witnesses for several years.
[many of whom were skeptics‘, critics and spies who were paid well to catch him in fraud or blasphemy whether ‘real,’ if at all possible or ‘fabricated’ when and if necessary].
As a Healer that cured diseases, like blindness, leprosy, deafness, regeneration [of not just skin tissue but withered limbs as well], relieving children and adults with torments of all sorts, even raising the dead; all showing a Power beyond the scope of the natural world, and most prominently in his dealing with the common person lost in transgressions [forgiving and commanding them “not to sin any more lest worse things happen to them“] He can be seen as a Truly Beneficent and Loving Leader in Righteousness.
He knew, lived and taught the importance of the ‘Word’, ‘Name’ and ‘Will’ of the Father as Moses and the prophets did and proclaimed the Messiah would do.
His Life, words and deeds confirm the promises and prophecies documented hundreds
to thousands of years before the events ever happened.
Attributes to identify a specific being that no one else in history has or could ever have done!
Act 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
Act 1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
Act 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Yahushua, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
He will return as He left in plain sight from & to the mount of olives, not a secretive entrance to whisk away some and leave the rest to suffer.
[in reality many cultures have their charlatans’ claiming great achievements’ prognosticating in broad stroke generalities and replete with grand myths and heroic legends’ to generate ill-gotten legitimacy for their iconic idol‘s reputation].
But In contrast the Scriptures have indicators, that in some places the signs are cryptically ‘veiled’ like in the rituals, and then in other spots where they are blatantly accurate predictions of the events from “era depictions” to “moments in time declared” to the year, month and day right down to the very hour in at least one place!
Prophecies describing many distinct actions and the land marks in time pointing out when to expect them to happen and for “Him to arrive” [both periods of visitation are listed and described in detail in many diverse places through out the scriptures
both first and second [testaments] “testimonies“, or “Phases“],
and several of these predictions were accurate descriptions of specific places and activities;
E.g. where He would be born, chased to, were He would be raised, places and peoples he was sent to teach,
Many circumstances and situations were events that neither He nor his entourage could have had any control over. Like the Roman Census, or His being Executed ‘on the Tree’ etc...
Here are some of His more popular and obvious accounts of the future events to come…
Let’s take a look shall we?
1 And Yahshua went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple.
2 And HE said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, there shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down.
(accomplished already by Titus 70 ad\ce)
3 And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying; tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy Return, and of the end of the Age?
4 And Yahshua answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Messiah;
and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors’ of wars: see that ye be not troubled:
for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
[sounds like the National conflicts, marauders, invaders, and World wars [real battles] and campaigns like the so called cold war [which was only a ‘rumor of war‘ or the crusades where myriads were tortured and forced to confess and convert , murdered and plundered all in the name of god and jezeus over the last few millenia]]
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diver’s places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
[this sounds like the last 500+ years]
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My Name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another,
and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And the good news of
the kingdom shall be preached in the entire world
for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the End Come!
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by
Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand :)
16 Then let them which are in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved:
but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets,
and shall show great signs and wonders;
insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east,
and shines even unto the west;
so shall the coming of the Son of man be.
(As we can see it is an event that evidently appears to be seen by all who observe the signs and even those not looking will have their attention drawn to the spectacle due to it being a world wide event utilizing satellites’ in orbit watching the heavens and those scanning the globe, combined with the cameras all over the Planet watching and surveying the activities of all the inhabitants of the earth)
(Big brother will see the Son arriving to prepare us to be introduced to the Father [big daddy in Person!])
He may come as a thief in the night but he is certainly not sneaking in by stealth to whisk away some preferred class of followers and leave the rest of us to be punished.
28 For wheresoever the carcass is there will the eagles [vultures? ] be gathered together.
29 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 the heavens shall be shaken:
then shall appear
the sign of the
Son of Man in Heaven:
and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
and they shall
see the Son of Man coming
clouds of Heaven
with Power and
31 And He shall send his angels
with a great sound of a trumpet,
and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near,
even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you,
This generation shall not pass,
till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but
my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
39 And knew not
until the flood came,
and took [swept] them all away;
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Leader doth return.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready:
for in such an hour
as ye think not the
Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his leader hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his leader when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you,
That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart,
My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants,
and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day
when he looketh not for him,
and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder,
and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites:
there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
[all those out side the gates for being naughty, hypocritical, insincere and either refusing or procrastinating in their repentance Matt 25]
2 Saul of Tarsus aka the Apostle Paul
Not trying to exclude Moses and others but… As far as we are concerned in this study
The second most authoritative scholar on scripture,
torah, the prophets and Faith in Messiah that I am aware of…
writes on the subject of messiahs return as well.
51 Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
at the “ ‘last’ trump“:
for the trumpet shall sound,
and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 the sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to YHVH, which giveth us the victory through our Messiah Yehoshua.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of YHVH Almighty,
for as ye know that for YHVH your labour is not in vain .
1 Cor 15:51-58
We’ve been taught that when the Messiah returns he is going to sneak in and take the Christians away secretly no matter how they lived their lives, but those christ killing Jews are going to pay for what they did for 7 years, and then jezeus is going to come back and set up his kingdom, then at that moment [we] the rest of the people left after the devastations shall all be changed into our new Bodies.
Here in the actual text we see that being…
[Caught up, snatched away or raptured from a Greek word raptiere[?]]
[will actually happen at the sounding of the last trumpet]
Here Saul of Tarsus (named after king Saul I wonder?) declares more details about the Messiahs return.
And as Yehoshua did, warning us not to be tricked by counterfeit epistles, and charlatans‘ claims, false prophets prognostications and predictions or the promises and doctrines of fraudulent Spiritual opportunists‘…
2 Thess 2:1-11
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Leader and example the Messiah,
In our gathering together unto Him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of the revelation of the Almighty is at hand.
and shows that there will be rebellion
as the man of lawlessness appears
3 Let no man deceive you by any means:
for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first,
and that man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or [anything] that is worshipped; so that he ‘as if’ a Deity sitteth in the temple of YHVH, shewing himself that he is Divine.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know that which*[withholds [conceals until the
moment appointed? ]] that
he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now
* [letteth], will let, until he be taken out of the way.
*[some versions say ‘resists or restrains‘]
8 And then shall that Wicked one be revealed,
whom the Almighty one shall expell with the word of his mouth, and shall depose with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan
with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause YHVH shall send them strong delusion, that
they should believe the lie:
[Evolution fit’s the bill here very well, physical, and spiritual evolution gives today’s Human the ability [given the power and authority] to fabricate and implement any whim without consequence]
Here is an account by ‘Yohanan’ ”John the Revelator”
He was a witness and experienced these events personally!
Some people say they can see themselves secretly hidden in the textual annotations some how…
I know I was not there and did not experience those visions and apparitions.
1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which
I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said,
Come up hither,
and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
2 And immediately I was in the spirit:
and, I beheld, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a Sardis stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald…
It was Yohanon who was called up, and taken up, and shown what was to come, and no one else!
there is no implication of any thing inferring a secret mass escape.
[Now here is an actual rapture during the tribulation of these 2 specific witnesses]
[I am wondering if it is where the mid trib theorem came from?]
1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of YHVH, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy
a thousand two hundred and threescore days [42 months], clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before YHVH ruler of the earth.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Messiah was Executed.
9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from YHVH entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them,
Come up hither.
And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud;
and their enemies beheld them.
13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake,
and the tenth part of the city fell…
That is a viable rapture but only 2 were called up.
* [my thoughts on “that which is restraining is taken away”
Certainly the Father is giving good advice and being persuasive in all those who are righteous and is allowing temptation to overtake those to be enticed, to teach us all the lesson
[The Meaning of Life]
that all troubles in life come from people violating the commandments...
E.G. Eating the fruit started decay of our bodies to the point of death, the decline of the stability of the planet [some say], The relationship between Man and the Father, the earth, the animals and the plant kingdom with Sorrow, pain and disease in tow...
Theft, murder, rape, terrorism, cheating, lying or deceiving etc… all cause suffering and misery!
During the Tribulation the faithful people in the world trying to be righteous, honest, upright and speaking out against sin are to be removed for slaughter, continuing the final solution Hitler was instigating…
Contemplating on that subject (how many cultures have tried to exterminate the Hebrews?
Soon we will be discussing YeremYah [Jeremiah] Chapters 31&33, please stay tuned.
I Do believe in YHWH’s Righeous Spirit. Having said that;
I am not against yet am not convinced there is a Trinity
thusly I submit these thoughts with supporting scriptures;
the Fathers Righteous and Holy Spirit is never taken out of the world!
It is the power and motivation that opens our eyes and hearts to see and accept the good news!
The only power we have to accomplish the tasks given to us by the Father and reiterated by the Messiah Himself
commanding them to wait until they were
endued with power from on high
and then they can be witnesses
to the peoples to the ends of the earth.
He Himself did not start His ministry until He was Filled with the Spirit of YHVH.
Even as the scriptures demand and declare;
from the very moment of conceiving and creating the universe to His Final Revelation, and continuing throughout eternity]
YHVH’s Righteous Spirit is Present, but still YHVH not two entities.
And The Messiah is the Fathers only begotten Son.
Since I was told that the Holy “Spirit” was to be taken out of the earth during the tribulation I have struggled with the concept simply due to the fact that in almost every instance the Father did anything…
His Spirit is mentioned. e. g. No man can come to me except the Spirit of YHVH draws them…
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of YHVH;
18 The Spirit of YHVH is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the good news to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind [literally and spiritually], to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of YHVH.
Luke 4:18-19 & Quoting IsaYah 61
44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
28 Then said Yehoshua unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. 29 And He that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me,
he gave me a commandment,
what I should say, and what I should speak.
50 And I know that His Commandment
is life everlasting:
whatsoever I speak therefore,
even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip saith unto him, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Yahshua saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?
the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me,
he doeth the works.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
…he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
1 I am the true vine, and
my Father is the husbandman.
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath…
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the ‘Spirit of your Father’ YHVH which speaketh in you.
44 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.
45 Then opened he their understanding,
that they might understand the scriptures,
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written,
and thus it behoved Messiah to suffer,
and to rise from the dead the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached
in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you:
but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem,
until ye be endued with power from on high.
63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
YHVH Elohah, YHVH echad
Yehova Almighty, YHVH is 1...
And I am YHVH Almighty there is no other…
Here is Yehoshua at Samaria talking to the adulteress woman at the well
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith unto her,
Woman, believe me, the hour cometh,
when ye shall neither in this mountain,
nor yet at Jerusalem,
Worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what:
we know what we worship:
for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh, and now is,
when the true worshippers
shall Worship the Father
in spirit and in truth:
for the Father seeketh
such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and
they that worship Him
MUST worship Him
In Spirit and in Truth.
25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh,
when he is arrives, he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea:
who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Hebrews.
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica,
in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honorable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
Scientific method was used by the Bereans to confirm or disprove the disciples’ and witnesses words and deeds and the author declared their approach to be appropriate, and “Nobel”
