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
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
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
(1st Peter 1
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.
Now, if the Spirit of the Infinite God Almighty had
not divinely intervened into the substance of my mind's spirit
with visionary dreams concerning His Holy Communion with the
saved, then for a certainty, this frail man would
not have pursued the difficult undertaking of these writings at
all. These apologetic writings do not subscribe to, nor
endorse any particular denomination's institutional doctrine,
but are written to endorse the unfailing Word of the Almighty
God of creation. Holy Communion is Holy God Almighty's Doctrine of Sanctification for the flesh of man
that is founded on the solid Rock of the unfailing Word of God that is the Man
Unfortunately, the understanding and judgment within the
willful demands of
finite man kind,
is entangled in a mind of unbelief that challenges and changes the Truth of the WORD'S of the Infinite Almighty God.
The wisdom of this perishing world accommodates man's ignorance
of the HOLY: But Let God be True and every man a liar.
Romans 3 verse 3 thru 5.)
Let us reason together: If Jesus Christ, Yeshua haMashiach, was crucified
in time before the
foundation of the world, then God's Word of Truth and Grace would also be flowing in
God's creation of time within
His Covenant Life
Saving Blood of Jesus Christ. In Christ's appointed day in flowing time, Yahweh God's Only Begotten Son
would institute the fullness of God's New Blood Covenant, given for the Life of
sinful man kind, who are born of God's Gift of Faith and written in the Book of Life.
This is My Blood of the New Covenant shed for many for the remission of sins.
In the flow of created time, and on the first day of
the Feast of
Unleavened Bread, the Lord Jesus Christ, God's Word of Grace, prays through God's
Holy Spirit of Truth. I have given them Thy Words which
to Me, and they have
received them. (See
John 12 verse 48 thru 50, and Deuteronomy 18 verse 18 thru
19.) Sanctify them thru the
Truth: that they all may be one, as Thou Father
art in Me, and I in Thee that they may be one, even as We are
One. (See our call to unity and to be One in
John 17.) If you can
hear: Then the members of the One Body
of Jesus Christ, are to be knitted together in the unity of the One Heart of God's
Holy Spirit of Grace, within the One
of our Lord Jesus Christ. (See
17 verse 20 thru 26.)
are blinded in our minds because of our own excused actions. From Adam,
through our parents, we were each naturally conceived and born in time into the enslavement of the will
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, 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 otherwise.
Paul knows of his own wretched body of sin that instinctively
breeds death, and 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
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
fear of God Almighty, is displaced
in the mind with a 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
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.
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".
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 in the flesh. In our inevitable failures, our flesh doesn't like to accept
blame, but we blame and rebuke the devil for the 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 the
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.)
Hear the Word of God and be in submission to God's Spirit of Truth. 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
tradition given through His Holy Spirit that
administers the Almighty's Grace. The Grace of God remains constant in Jesus
Blood of Sanctification, for 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 Blood diminishes 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.)
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
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
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 Blood of God's Christ.
Individually, in 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

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

focus, which is relative to the sustaining Power of the Spirit of the Word of
