These NASA Hubble Space Telescope snapshots reveal dramatic activities within the core of the galaxy NGC 3079, where a lumpy bubble of hot gas is rising from a cauldron of glowing matter. The picture at the bottom shows the bubble in the center of the galaxy's disk. The structure is more than 3,000 light-years wide and rises 3,500 light-years above the galaxy's disk. The smaller photo at the bottom 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.

 

Introduction,
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. 

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 Christ Jesus. 

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 finite world accommodates man's ignorance of the HOLY.  Let God be True and every man a liar(See Romans 3 verse 3 thru 5.)

Let us reason together: Within the Eternal God's creation of time, if Jesus Christ, Yeshua haMashiach, was crucified before the foundation of the world, then God's Word of Truth and Grace would also be flowing in time with His Covenant Life Saving Blood of Jesus Christ.  In Christ's appointed day, Yahweh God's Only Begotten Son would institute the fullness of God's New Blood Covenant given for the Life of sinful man kind, 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 time, and on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, God's Word of Grace, the Lord Jesus Christ, prays through God's Holy Spirit of Truth.  I have given them Thy Words which Thou gave 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: Thy Word is 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 sinless Body of our Lord Jesus Christ.  (See John 17 verse 20 thru 26.)

We are blinded in our minds to our own excused actions.  From Adam, through our 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 in the earth of which every sin of man kind engenders.  The embodiment of sin, in the self centered flesh of mankind, remains lethal. The Christian in Name, needs to understand that the slanderous sins of their self centered flesh did not end with their acknowledgement of Christ's Sacrifice for sin, but from sin's inception, self will in the flesh of man 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 he cries out.  O wretched man that I am: Who will save me from this body of death. (Romans 7 verse 24-25.)  The body of sin and death remains in Paul, and 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 man prescribed incantations, complacency can settle within the heart of the person and then their 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 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.

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 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 know 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 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 ordained tradition given through His Holy Spirit that administers the Almighty's Grace.  The Grace of God remains constant in Jesus Christ's Communion Blood of Sanctification, 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 fullness of God's Blood Covenant through His Spirit of Grace.  The Communion Blood diminishes our self idolatry, and brings the eyes of our 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 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: For in the Truth there is only the One Perfect Love of Holy Yahweh Lord God Almighty, being One with His Holy Spirit of Grace within 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 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 Embarkation

The beginning first chapter of our treatise, embarks upon an exploratory journey, too establish the Infinite Power of the Holy 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 a 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 the Holy Spirit, the reader will find the pages to be holy enlightening.

Abiding in the Perfect Love of God in Christ Jesus,

Robert Glenn Pratten with my beloved wife, Rose Labez Pratten
