GOD's Letter to You - The Holy Bible

Intro - GOD's Letter To You

When you read GOD's WORD, He's communicating, or speaking, to you through His Letter.  In Matthew 6:11, which reads "Give us this day our daily Bread", the word "daily" means "coming" or "descending upon".  Jesus said, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of GOD (Matt 4:4). 

John 6:32  "Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my FATHER giveth you the True Bread from Heaven."

John 6:33  "For the Bread of GOD is He which cometh down from Heaven, and giveth Life unto the world."

John 6:34  "Then said they unto Him, Lord, evermore give us this bread."

John 6:35  "And Jesus said unto them, I am the Bread of Life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst."

CHRIST is the True Bread from Heaven; He is the Living WORD.  You eat the WORD, the hidden manna, everyday, that comes from Heaven.  If you want to fill your spiritual stomach, meditate on and digest the WORD.  Thirst no more, for CHRIST is the Living Water, which is the well of water springing up into Everlasting Life (Jn 4:14).

Matthew 4:3  "And when the tempter came to Him, he said, If thou be the Son of GOD, command that these stones be made bread."

Matthew 4:4  "But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of GOD."

The very first verse that Jesus taught during His ministry dealt with the WORD of GOD.  It's not a coincidence that Christ's temptation in the wilderness occurred right at the beginning of the ministry.  The story is an ensample, showing you the pattern of what's to come and how to live your life as a Christian.  Jesus fasted forty days and forty nights (the number "40" represents probation), before the tempter, satan, came to Him.  The first lesson is man shall not live by bread alone, but he shall live by the Word of GOD.

Deuteronomy 8:3  "And He [GOD] 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."

GOD fed the children of Israel manna, angel's food.  Yet, they wandered in the wilderness for 40 years and were disobedient to GOD.  Christ hungered, fasting 40 days and nights, and was obedient.  If you want to be obedient to Him, and gain more wisdom and truth, you'll have to be consistent in nourishing your spirit with the WORD.

When you pray, in the name of Jesus, you have a direct line of communication with our Heavenly FATHER, through your faith in the Son.

When Jesus Christ died on the cross, for the sins of those who believe on His name, and come to repentance, He became the perfect sacrifice for one and all time.  In prior times, the most sacred room in the Temple was known as the Holy of Holies.

Matthew 27:51  "And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;"

The veil was a large curtain that covered the door to the "Holiest of all" rooms in the Temple.  This room gave the high priest direct access to GOD.  Once a year, the high priest could enter to offer blood of sacrifice for atonement, before the Mercy Seat.  When CHRIST died for your sins on the cross, He ripped the veil in two, from the top to bottom, and opened a way to GOD.  The way to CHRIST and the HOLIEST of all was now open to all who choose to follow the One that paid the price for their sins.

Hebrews 10:16  "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the LORD, I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;"

You engrave GOD's laws, commandments and promises in your heart and write them in your mind by studying His WORD.  Your mind is what you feed it with, so don't waste your mental energy consuming false doctrines and worldly junk.

Hebrews 10:17  "And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more."

Hebrews 10:18  "Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin."
Hebrews 10:19  "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,"

Hebrews 10:20  "By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh;"

Hebrews 10:21  "And having an High Priest over the house of GOD;"

If you believe on Jesus CHRIST and have repented of your sins, He gives you the right to enter before the Throne of GOD.  The High Priest after the order of Melchisedec is CHRIST.  He is the King of the Righteous, or Just, King of the Zadok.

Hebrews 6:19  "Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;"

Hebrews 6:20  "Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an High Priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec."

GOD's Letter to you is the Holy Bible, where you learn about Him, His Son and Truth (The FATHER, SON and Holy SPIRIT of Truth), and when you pray, you're submitting your letter (in the figurative sense) to Him.  You don't need to write your prayer in letter form, just speak to Him like a son to his father.  He wants to hear from you and He also wants you to come out of indoctrination and the precepts of men.

Proverbs 30:5  "Every Word of GOD is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him."

Draw near to GOD and have f.a.i.t.h. (full assurance in the heart).  The word "shield" in Hebrew (mâgên) comes from the primitive root word, "gânan", which means to "hedge about" or protect.  Love and serve the LORD and don't waiver, because He will keep you hedged in with His protection.  Be not like the hypocrites and heathens, who tear and put people down.  Learn how to support, encourage and build others up in the WORD, especially your brothers and sisters in Christ, because every Word of GOD is pure.

Hebrews 10:22  "Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water."

Hebrews 10:23  "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)"

Hebrews 10:24  "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:"

Hebrews 10:25  "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."

Your study of GOD's WORD should be chapter by chapter and verse by verse.  It's just like reading a long novel or watching a movie, because you won't appreciate or understand the story, if it's delivered to you in bits and pieces.  Organized religion is set up in a way to break up the pure WORD into minitruths.  The precepts of men are weaved into fragments of truth, then, delivered via indoctrination and transferred from generation to generation.  A little bit of leaven leaveneth the whole lump, so it only takes a packet or two of indoctrination to propagate through the entire mind.

In Mark Ch 8 and Matthew Ch 16, Christ asked his disciples how many baskets of fragments (meat) did they have left over, after the multitude was fed.  He also asked "How is it that you don't understand?" 

Mark 8:20  "And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they [disciples] said, Seven."

The first lesson is that there's always enough meat for the Truth seeker in GOD's WORD, but you have to go to the source.  The number "7" represents spiritual completeness or perfection.  In Hebrew, seven is "shebah", from the root "shaba", meaning to be full or satisfied.  GOD completed His work on the Seventh day and rested.  The pure, unleavened WORD will satisfy and fill your spirit.  Jesus fed the multitude of 4,000 with seven loaves ("7" represents spiritual completeness) and a few small fishes (fish - ΙΧΘΥΣ [Ichthus] - acrostic/cypher using Greek letters - Iēsous Christos, Theou Yios, Sōtēr - "Jesus Christ, Son of GOD, Savior").  Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior, is the Bread of Life.

Matthew 16:8  "Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?"

Matthew 16:9  "Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?"

Matthew 16:10  "Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?"

After the multitude was fed, and full, there remained 7 baskets of unused meat.  Remember, the words of the LORD are pure words, purified 7 times. 

Psalms 12:6  "The words of the LORD are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times."

But the 7 baskets of leftover meat are only fragments of the Word, or truth, that have been divided, broken down and handled by men.  The number "4" represents the Earth, the elements and also division.  There are four corners or regions (north, east, west, south) of the Earth; four elements (earth, air, fire, water); four divisions of the day (morning, noon, evening, midnight); four seasons (summer, fall, winter, spring) as so forth.  In the Bible, the divisions of mankind are stated as peoples; multitudes; nations; and tongues, or lands; tongues; families; nations (Gen 10:5), etc.  The number "1,000" is a symbol of multitude, so 4 x 1000, is division among the multitude (division of mankind).  Minitruths promote division and denominationalism amongst multitudes of men.

Matthew 16:11  "How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?"

The leaven that Jesus spoke of was indoctrination, comprised of false doctrines and the traditions of men.  Christ went one step further by pointing out the fragments of meat, or minitruths, that have been handled by the hands of men.  He warns us of indoctrination and the predigested, prepackaged doctrines of men.  This all deals with what you're feeding your mind and spirit, the pure WORD and Truth, or the doctrines of devils.  You cannot grasp the deeper meaning or understand the big picture, of our FATHER'S letter, by listening to false teachers and following organized religion.

Revelation 17:14  "These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful."

Revelation 17:15  "And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues."

1 Kings 19:18  "Yet I HAVE LEFT ME SEVEN THOUSAND IN ISRAEL, ALL THE KNEES WHICH HAVE NOT BOWED UNTO BAAL, and every mouth which hath not kissed to him."

The Lamb, the LORD of lords and KING of kings, is Jesus CHRIST.  The called, chosen and faithful are His elect, who will not bow a knee to the false messiah, satan, in these end times.  The 7,000 ( 7 x 1000) means this group of elect (not limited to only 7,000 individuals) are sealed with Truth, the pure WORD of the LORD, purified 7 times.  They are sealed in spiritual completedness of the WORD, understanding the Holy Bible as a unit, and knowing what really happened in the Garden of Eden.  They know that antichrist, satan, will arrive first before the True CHRIST and they can trace the seedline of satan, the kenites, throughout the Bible up until this final generation.  The elect study GOD's Letter chapter by chapter and verse by verse and will not take the mark of the beast in their minds or in their actions.  But the whore, or Mystery Babylon, representing the kenites (the mistress of the serpent) and satan's one world religious system, will be sitting on the multitude of masses with deception and lies.

In the Old Testament, we have the five Books of the Law of Moses (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy).  The Book of Genesis is the "Origin" or "The Beginning".  The Key of David starts with opening this book or door.  It's the master key that opens every door, or book, following it. 

Then we have the Books of the History of Israel and the kingdom divided (Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther).  It ends with Esther, which reveals to the elect the working of the kenites.

The Books of Poetry and Wisdom are Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon.  The Major Prophets follow (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel).  Right behind them are the Minor Prophets (Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi).

In the New Testament, we have the Books of the Life of CHRIST and History (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts).  The Epistles (Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews) follow and then the General Epistles (James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude).  The last book, Revelation, is a sister book of the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament.  Both books are written to the people who live in this final generation.
