These NASA Hubble Space Telescope snapshots reveal dramatic activities within the core of the galaxy NGC 3079. In the white box within the midst of the galaxy, we see a lumpy bubble of hot gas that is rising from a cauldron of glowing matter. The structure is more than 3,000 light-years wide and rises 3,500 light-years above the galaxy's disk. The photo directly above is a close-up view of the bubble. Astronomers suspect that the bubble is being blown by winds of high-speed streams of particles released during a burst of star formation. Gaseous filaments at the top of the bubble are whirling around in a vortex and are being expelled into space. Eventually, this gas will rain down upon the galaxy's disk where it may collide with gas clouds, compress them, and form a new generation of stars. The two white dots just above the bubble are probably stars in the galaxy.
with the Refiner's Fire
Malachi 3 verse 1 thru 3: And suddenly there will come to the temple, the Lord Whom you seek, and the Messenger of the Covenant Whom you desire. Yes, He is coming, says the Lord of Hosts. But who will endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like the refiner's fire, or like the fuller's lye. He will sit refining and purifying, And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: And He shall purify the sons of Levi and purge them as gold and silver that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.
Perhaps, you are familiar with the old story of the students, who, together with their teaching master, went on an excursion to a precious metal smelter and foundry. When they came into the heat and glow of the main room of the refinery, then they saw an older man standing next to a fired cauldron containing gold ore. The gentleman stood there patiently stirring the contents of the cauldron, and every now and then would ladle off some of the sludge and dross, as it separated from the ore and came to the surface. After watching for a little while, one of the students asked the old man: "How will you know when the gold is ready?" The old man leaning over and looking into the boiling cauldron, answered the lad: "When I see my reflection in the gold, then I will know of its perfection."
So then that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: (1st Peter 1 verse 7)
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My Mouth. Because thou say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that thou art wretched, and miserable and poor, and blind and naked: I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire that thou may be rich; and to buy white raiment that thou may be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness does not appear; and to anoint thine eyes with eye salve that thou may see. As many as I Love, I rebuke and chasten: Be zealous therefore, and repent. (Revelation 3 verse 15 thru 20.)
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My Voice, and open the door [of his heart], I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. (Revelation 3 verse 15 thru 22.) He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit of God says unto the churches.
Unbelief stirs the dross of controversy, and controversy boils over into confusion, and confusion is of the devil, the lord of the dead. The removal of the dross of confusion over Holy Communion, is at the heart of this apologetic treatise.
Let us reason together: If Jesus Christ, Yeshua haMashiach, God's Lamb was slain in the fabric of time even before the foundation of the world, then Almighty God knew in the course of His creation of time that unseen sin and death would become a destroying factor the life of ignorant mankind.
We are blinded in our minds because of our own excused actions. From Adam, through our own natural parents, we were each naturally conceived and born in time into the enslavement of the will of sin that was engendered by the first Man's rebellion toward the Creator of all things. The rebellion by the treasonous sin of the first Man Adam, would explode exponentially into Adam's offspring, with a continuous flow of violence into the earth through every sin that is engendered by the flesh of man kind. The embodiment of sin, in the self centered flesh of mankind, both in the saved or unsaved, remains lethal in the world. The Christian in Name, needs to understand that the slanderous sins of their own self centered flesh did not end with their acknowledgement of Christ's Sacrifice for sin. Nay, but from sin's inception in the flesh, the sins of the saved person continues to create violent consequences in the world. Even the one sinful action of the perpetrator is exacerbated in all the offenses of the many, whether they are saved or just dead in their sins.
Paul knows of his own wretched body of sin that instinctively breeds death, and so in the knowledge of the TRUTH, Paul cries out. O wretched man that I am: Who will save me from this body of death. (Romans 7 verse 24-25.) I Thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Even with a profession of salvation faith, the body of sin and death remains in the flesh of Paul, and so it remains present in every one who calls upon the Name of Jesus Christ as Savior. The body's self centered nature tends to cause sinners to forget what manner of person they were before God's Spirit of Salvation became known within the spirit of their mind. (See James 1 verse 23 thru 25.)
After a few of man's prescribed incantations, complacency can settle within the heart of the people of the pews, and then their fear of God Almighty, is displaced in the mind with a semi comfortable satisfaction within their own shallow understanding of themselves. What do you think? Having said the incantations, can the judgment of the called to Salvation, be skewed because of a supposed new superiority over the rest of lost humanity. (See Matthew 7 verse 1 thru 5.) If sin in the flesh of man, is reigning unto death, then where do we find the remedy to a right relationship with Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of the living. (See Psalm 103 verse 8 thru 13.) Then Jesus says to us: Truly, Truly I say unto you: Except you eat of the Flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His Blood, you have no LIFE in you.
Come unto Me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I AM meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light (Matthew 11 verse 28 thru 30.)
Do you not know that "The Word of God is actively alive and, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing, even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and is a Discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart". (Hebrews 4 verse 12.) Now, when the Holy Spirit of God stirs up our conscience, then we are being reminded or warned of the weaknesses of our old wretched self that remains entrenched in the flesh. In our inevitable failures, our flesh doesn't like to accept blame, but we blame and rebuke the devil for our discomfort in the revelation of our former self centered actions. (See James 1 verse 16 thru 25.) It is true that the flies, of the lord of the flies, also knows of our weaknesses in decaying flesh and will endeavor to exploit sin's past infections that breeds death. When sinful failures follow our ignorance of the Holy, then typically we have slid into the pit of idolatrous pride that stifles humility, preventing our repentance toward the only Holy Lord God of the living. Therefore, let not sin have dominion over you! For God resist the proud, but He gives Grace unto the humble. Therefore submit yourselves to God, then resist the devil and he will flee from you. (See all of James 4 verse 6 thru 10.)
Humbly hear the Word of God and be in submission to God's Spirit of TRUTH, and do not let not our minds become entrenched within the false teachings from our pulpit idols. The false doctrines, from self elevated leaders, have created a blindness to God's ordained needful tradition given through His Holy Spirit that administers the Almighty's Spirit of Grace. The Grace of God remains constant in Jesus Christ's Communion Blood of Sanctification, for in Faith, LIFE is given by God's Spirit of Grace to repentant believers. If you have clicked on the green tradition link then perhaps you will see that clarity is skewed in the Greek word "paradosisor" as it is transliterated to the word ordinances that is found in the following linked scripture. (See 1st Corinthians 11 verse 1 thru 2.)
God's New Covenant ordinance for His Grace enables us to freely repent from our sins with our genuine participation in the total fullness of God's Blood Covenant through His Spirit of Grace. The Communion LIFE giving Blood of Jesus Christ eclipses our self idolatry, and brings the eyes of our humble heart to focus on the Almighty God with His abiding Mercy and Love in His Son, Christ Jesus. (See 1st Peter 5 verse 7 thru 9.) The Lord Jesus, the True Vine, declares at His Table of Grace: You can do nothing without Me. (Reconsider John 15 verse 5 thru 7.) And then the Salvation of God cries out from the cross: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
The call for all is to repent and believe the TRUTH that is Christ Jesus: For within the TRUTH of the Word of God, there is only the One Perfect Love of Holy Yahweh Lord God Almighty, and That Love is One with Yahweh's Holy Spirit of Grace that abides for ever in His Word that was made the flesh of Man and died for man kind's sin. To be in the resurrected Christ Jesus, is where the Perfect Love of God resides and that Love would constrain the members within Christ's Body. (See Ephesians 4 verse 4 thru 6, 2nd Corinthians 5 verse 14 and Colossians 2 verse 2 with Ephesians 4 verse 15 thru 16.) Holy God's constraining New Covenant Love is cleansing and is preventative through His Holy Spirit of Grace that is One with the Water and LIFE giving Blood of God's Christ. n the death of self, we are called to be One in the Likeness of God's only Begotten and sinless Son, Jesus Christ. (See John 17 verse 20 thru 24.)
The beginning first chapter of this treatise, embarks upon an exploratory journey, seeking to establish the Infinite Power of the Holy Eternal God of the universe. The constancy of God's Word, Jesus Christ, is in Eternal Union with God's Holy Spirit that sustains all things in existence. Hopefully, both the presented writings of the physical world, tied into the unseen spiritual world, will cause the reader to give further praise and glory to the Almighty and His Word of Salvation. Both the second section chapter on the Blood of Christ, and the fourth section chapters on His Body, will exhibit visionary dreams that will bring the Covenant Blood and Body of our Lord Jesus into spiritual focus, which is relative to the sustaining Power of the Spirit of the Word of God.
Now, if the explorer of the Truth is in a hurry, then you might begin in those chapters with the visionary dreams. The visionary dreams are highlighted with a brighter gold and marked with a blinking within the menu section below. Nevertheless, the visitor is encouraged to investigate the full web manuscripts; for a wise and discerning heart will know the whole of the matter, before reaching a final conclusion. The Word of God is absolutely essential for the readers' spiritual understanding, therefore, the many scripture links are conveniently provided within the manuscript, to test and see if the visionary dreams contained within the apologetic manuscripts, illustrates foundational Truth when those dreams are compared to the instructions in the Word of God:
The Apostle Paul encourages us in the Word, as he writes: Study (Be diligent) to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, by rightly dividing the Word of Truth. (See 2nd Timothy 2 verse 15.) Therefore, I sincerely hope and pray that with the help of God's Holy Spirit, the reader will find the pages to be holy enlightening.
Abiding in the Perfect Love of God in Christ Jesus,
