Indoctrination: Graves of Lust - pt 9

Truth has an origin.  Genesis (the first Book of the Bible) is the "origin", in Greek (γένεσις), and in Hebrew, it's Bərēšīṯ, or "In the Beginning".  Everything in the Old Testament is essentially in the New Testament.  As Christians, we study from the entire WORD of GOD.  The Apocrypha is also good to include in your studies (check out the translation by Goodspeed).  Jesus CHRIST is the Living WORD and if you study with understanding and guidance, from the Holy Spirit, you will see CHRIST from the Book of Genesis to Revelation.  "In the Beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD.  The same was In the Beginning with GOD" (John 1:1-2).

In the great Book of Genesis, the Tree of Life, in the Garden of Eden, was Christ (Gen 2:9; 3:22; 3:24).  In Genesis Ch 14, Abram gave tithes to Melchizedek, who was Christ, the Priest of priests of the Most High GOD. 

Genesis 14:18 "(And Melchizedek King of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the Priest of the Most High GOD.")

John 8:56  "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it, and was glad."

Not only did Abram understand GOD'S promise of the Messiah, he also observed Christ on that day.  Melchizedek comes from two Hebrew words, "Melka" means "King" and "Zedek" means "righteous".  Christ is King of the Righteous, or Just, King of the Zadok. 

In the temptation in the wilderness, Christ was teaching us about what occurred in Israel's temptation, coming out of Egyptian captivity.  Jesus said unto the devil, "It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the LORD thy GOD" (Matt 4:7).  We are to learn from the examples written in His WORD.  It is written for our admonition, or warning, and to learn from others before us.  The understanding of the Three Earth Ages, and all prophesies concerning the final generation, come from understanding the entire Scriptures as a unit. 

1 Corinthians 10:1  "Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;"

Don't be ignorant, meaning don't forget or not understand.

1 Cor 10:2  "And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;"

The children of Israel witnessed, firsthand, GOD'S awesome power and presence, in His parting of the Red Sea.

1 Cor 10:3  "And did all eat the same spiritual meat;"

Manna, the food of angels, all the nutrition you need packed into one kind of food.  GOD takes care of His own. 

1 Cor 10:4  "And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ."

The spiritual meat and drink is Christ, the Living Word.  You eat the Word everyday and you're walking with Christ daily.  "Rock" with a capital "R" is Christ.

1 Cor 10:5  "But with many of them GOD was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness."

Be careful what you ask for... "And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would GOD that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would GOD we had died in this wilderness!" (Num 14:2).  And so it was.  "Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:" (Num 14:28).

1 Cor 10:6  "Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted."

If you haven't studied, then you won't know the examples.

1 Cor 10:7  "Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play."

Are you going to worship the CREATOR or the creation?  There are many golden calves (false idols) in our spiritual wilderness today.  They usually have some type of status or dollar signs associated with them.

1 Cor 10:8  "Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand."

1 Cor 10:9  "Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents."

1 Cor 10:10  "Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer."

Don't allow the destroyer, satan, to indoctrinate and pollute your mind with lies, indoctrination and the precepts of men.  Satan is coming to deceive the world and the indoctrination and double-mindedness, of our times, lead toward the worship of the wrong, or false, messiah, the "instead of Christ".  The whole world will whore after satan, thinking he's the Messiah, drunken from the indoctrination of the cup of devils.  The hypocrisy of the end times will turn to apostasy. 

1 Cor 10:11  "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."

The children of Israel lacked faith and were carnal and disobedient to GOD.  While lusting for meat, they forgot about the miracles that GOD performed for them.  Today, that lust for meat can be money, real estate, perversions or anything you put above GOD.  If there's money (instead of manna) falling from the sky, you can bet people will spend all day and night picking it up off the ground.  Who shall give us flesh (or money) to eat and live?  GOD wanted them to eat from His Table (spiritual meat) and drink from His Cup of Truth (spiritual drink).

Deuteronomy 8:3  "And He humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that He might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live." 

Some people say they are Christians, but all you ever hear from them is how much they respect the wealthy and famous.  They foam at the mouths with all of their chatter, comparisons and disputings about money, status and material things.  What those people fail to understand is that they're operating in the carnal mindset, and the carnal mind is enmity against GOD (Rom 8:5-8).  It's just the heathen nonsense of corrupt minds, destitute of the Truth, supposing that gain is godliness (1 Tim 6:5).  The carnally-minded tend to think that money and material objects can somehow enhance or enrich their souls.  There are no spiritual rewards in Heaven for pride, greed, hoarding and selfishness.  Most of the good works that people perform don't involve earning money or recognition.  The carnal mind is obssessed with gain and comparing gains.  Carnal rich is about being seen by other men. 

Jesus fasted 40 days and 40 nights to go through the temptation in the wilderness for you.  So stop the complaining and perverse disputings.  Satan's not going to come, pretending to be Christ, empty handed.  He's going to have deep pockets, full of so-called bargains, and many will worship him in exchange for those temporal things.  The indoctrinated and deceived minds are going to get buried in Kibrothhattaavah - the graves of lust.

Numbers 11:32  "And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp."

Num 11:34  "And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted."

Num 12:3  "(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)"

Moses was humble and patient, above all the men upon the face of the earth.  We can learn some things from Moses and GOD gave us these true stories to learn from them.  History repeats itself, for there is no new thing under the sun.  People fall over and over again for the same wicked bargains of satan.  We're to learn from the history of the past, because life is too short for you to learn everything the hard way.  And learning by hurting others is not righteousness.  Take the straight and narrow path that leads to everlasting life, Jesus Christ.  Christianity is a reality; it's not a religion, building or system of men.

Ecclesiastes 1:9  "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."

Ecclesiastes 1:10  "Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us."

You want to make it through probation.  Christ set the example for you to follow in the temptation in the wilderness. 

Numbers 14:34  "After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise."

Galatians 5:14  "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

Judging someone else; being a hypocrite, criticizing and tearing others down; making wicked assumptions; manipulating others; looking down at people because they have less than you do; being a respecter of persons; judging by the outward appearance; showing arrogance and pride (Matt 7:1-2; Matt 7:3-5; Pro 18:2; ; Gal 5:1-21; Lev 19:15; Joh 7:24; Pro 6:16-19; 2 Tim 3:1-5); none of them are from the Holy Spirit.  You love someone else, your neighbor, as yourself.

James 2:8  "If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:"

James 2:9  "But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors."

Treat others as you want to be treated (Matt 7:12).  If it's not fit, meaning not something you want, for you or your loved ones, then it's not fit for your neighbor.  If they're impossible neighbors, tough love and correction, dealt with the right measure, will help get it done.  Your immediate family members do not fit the bill as your neighbors.  Even the wicked and wild beasts know how to love their own.  Take it up a notch.  Love thy neighbor as thyself.  GOD will exalt the humble and abase the proud (Matt 23:12).  Swallow your false pride and avoid being the person getting abased.  The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance.  Have you shared the fruit of the Spirit lately?

Galatians 5:15  "But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another." 

Gal 5:16  "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh." 

Gal 5:17  "For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would."

Gal 5:18  "But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law."

Gal 5:19  "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,"

Gal 5:20  "Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,"

Gal 5:21  "Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of GOD."

Gal 5:22  "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,"

Gal 5:23  "Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

Gal 5:24  "And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts."

Gal 5:25  "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit."

Gal 5:26  "Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another."
