Revelation Class Seminar : Pergamos Pt 4 – Jonathan Bowen Video Post

Follow........
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

This is an ongoing series given at the home of Bro Jonathan Bowen (Ontario).

The subject of Prophecy is essential for a complete understanding of God’s plan and purpose with the Earth. The Book of revelation was given by Christ to John so that the generations that would follow would have the means whereby to ascertain the signs of the times in relation to themselves. In each class, Jonathan is leading us through the book of Revelation in a relaxed and thoughful manner engaging and involving those present, illustrating key points using a white board which we then replicate in the videos produced.

 Here is the latest video.

Notes Summary for Bible Marking purposes

(Thank you Sister Fay Berry)

Watch the whole series so far here..

Study 4 – Revelation – Pergamos – Jonathan Bowen notes by Sis Fay Berry – Thank you!

https://youtu.be/Tihm2dVHdqs

This is the letter to Pergamos, and we are dealing with the part now which is dealing with the reward. It is the last part of v 17 where it says “to him that overcome the I will give to eat of the hidden manna and I will give him a white stone.”

We are going to give you a chart which has the structure of the letters to the Ecclesia’s  because they all have pretty much the same structure. He defines the commendations and then deals with what he has against them. The last part is dealing with the “reward.”

I want to deal with the idea of the “true clergy.” The apostasy has developed a system of “clergy” which is incorrect and unscriptural and we don’t want to develop into the same kind of system, 1 Pet 5:1-3 Here we will look at the “true clergy.”  Here we have where we are told that “we are not to be lord’s over God’s heritage.”

The word heritage 2819 Kleros  – from which we get Clergy which is used by the church. This is a legitimate word, but it is not a legitimate use of the word.  In its context it speaks about the leaders who are not to be lords over God’s heritage.  The churches have actually taken the title of the “heritage” to themselves. All the members of the ecclesia are the clergy but the churches have tried to differentiate between “clergy” and what they call “laity,” when they are all “clergy” and there is no division into “clergy” and “laity” This is a complete misapplication of what is actually meant in the Bible.

As Christadelphian we have chosen not to have a paid ministry so that we can avoid the development of a division between the leaders of the ecclesia and the ecclesia itself. If you are paying for the message, that will delegitimise  the message. Someone who is being paid for a message can adulterated that message. Not only that it is not the way the Bible describes is. You can not be a shepherd in the ecclesia for the sake of money. Neither are you to be a lord over God’s heritage. We should not be “hired like Balaam.”

“Lord’s over God’s heritage.” I want to pick up on what that actually is. It is not the church clergy, the Jewish nation resettled in the land is the “clergy,” or the heritage of God, it is the kingdom of heaven as a grain of mustard seed, Matt 13:31. God has no clergy in the times of the Gentiles who are not Jews by adoption.

Israel is the inheritance of God, they are the clergy we read about in 1 Peter. During this dispensation when the Gentiles have the ascendency anybody who is part of the clergy has to be part of the Jewish nation by adoption Gal 3, “Those who are Christ’s are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promises.” These are the Israel of God for the current time.

The clergy are God’s people, the nation of Israel.  Israel is the inheritance of God. The sons of Balaam are not the clergy, whatever “church” they are from.  God’s “heritage” is his people. Joel Ch 3:1-3. Christendom is totally astray on the subject.

Rev 2;17 “eat of the hidden manna.”  “Hidden” G2928  “crupto” = cryptic. A crypt hides bodies. If you want to hide a meaning, then it is cryptic. To hide or conceal. “Manna”. H4478 “manna” = “what is it.” That was the question the children of Israel asked. It is the “hidden manna.” Ex 16:10-15.

This is the bread that Yahweh has given ye to eat. First they see the glory of Yahweh, which appeared in the cloud, after that, in the evening they have flesh to eat, quails. Then you have night time, and then in the morning, first of all, dew, then after the dew has disappeared, you have the manna.  That is the pattern, the sequence of things that happen. We are told that the manna is “the bread from Yahweh.” That is the story as it rolls out. What does all of this mean to us?

Come to 1 Cor 10:1-10 – this is a commentary on the wilderness wandering.  They all ate the same spiritual meat. The manna is called “spiritual meat,” it is not just bread in the wilderness, and it happened to them for ensamples, they happened to them for ensamples, G5179 “toupos” = type or pattern. These are types or patterns. The word “type” is like a type writer, you press a key on the keyboard and a key strikes a ribbon and leaves an impression. That is the idea of a type, a “mark, stroke, or impression.” When he says these things are a type it is the pattern that is impressed. It is not the original that is left on the page, you have an impression that is left. Something that leaves an impression, like a seal.

These are types and patterns. There is a spiritual lesson behind it.  Psa 78:24  has this concept expanded upon.  Here you have another expression, manna rained down from heaven described as “the corn of heaven.”  This is the spiritual meat that sustained the children of Israel for 40 years in the wilderness, the provision of God. Ex 16:19-20. The problem with the manna was that it didn’t last.  If it was left till the morning, it corrupted. If you didn’t go and collect it, by noon it was gone. If you didn’t get out of bed, it was gone by the time the sun rose. It was only available for a period of time. It was spiritual meat typical of something else the children of Israel would be given. John 6:30-31.  “He gave them bread from heaven to eat,” just after the feeding of the 5000.  This was the manna in the wilderness. John 6:32-35. Here is the typical written for us, the true bread from heaven is Jesus Christ.

Exactly how is he the bread that came down from heaven, John 1:1-4. In the beginning is the word, which is logos, and in him is the light of men. John 1:14. And the word was made flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory. They all saw the glory of God, so if the true bread from heaven is Christ, it is also the Word, because the word became flesh. When he talks about partaking of the hidden manna, it is partaking of the Lord Jesus Christ. John 14:6 He is the way, the truth and the life.

Access to the father only comes through the Lord Jesus Christ. The same idea is coming down to us, he is the word made flesh, the true bread from heaven and access to the father has to be through the son. John 6:53-58. He that eats of this bread shall live forever.  His flesh is the bread that came down from heaven, the true bread is Christ who is the word made flesh.

He is not talking about his literal flesh, so eating the flesh of the son of God, is eating the word of life. The words I have spoken to you they are spirit and they are life.  We have eternal life dwelling in us by eating his word. The body is the bread, is the flesh is the word. They see the glory of god, then they partake of the manna. That’s how it all rolls out. The whole parable of the manna is typical. Christ in his life fulfils this type.

What was the pattern again in the parable of the life of the Lord Jesus Christ? It was gathered each morning before the sun arose, if it was left it would corrupt. On the sixth day they would gather a double portion and this would not corrupt. Christ is the typical manna. When was the manna gathered for the Sabbath day? On the Friday. So on Friday gather manna for two days, and the special quality of it was that it would not corrupt. When was the Lord Jesus Christ taken and crucified? On the Friday the day before the Sabbath. John 19:30-31. The gathering was on the Friday. Christ died on the preparation of the Sabbath day and his body was gathered prior to.  The body which is the bread in type was gathered on Friday, the day prior to the Sabbath. John 19: 48-32. The body of Christ is taken, gathered and laid in the sepulchre before the Sabbath.

The body is the symbol of the manna and the manna is the word, so come to Luke 24:1-7  This is the third day and the question is “why are you seeking the living among the dead.” The point is it is the first day of the new week, but he is not there. So what has happened to him, has he corrupted? No. Acts 2:27-31.  Here you have the parable living out on the seventh day it did not see corruption.  His flesh did see no corruption, His flesh is the bread is the manna, so it is the flesh – the bread from heaven did not see corruption. That’s the point that is being made here. He lives out the parable of the manna in his own life but there is more than that. Because the stuff on the seventh day did not corrupt.

There is another part that did not corrupt.Ex 16:33-34 so there was some that was laid up. One pot of manna is taken and it is put into the ark of the testimony in the most holy place and it stays there for centuries and is uncorrupted.  Christ is the type. Heb 9:1-6  This pot of manna was laid in the ark and it lasted for centuries, the symbol of the manna is Christ.  Here you have the story and in the holiest of all was the ark of the covenant and inside the ark the pot of manna alongside Aaron’s rod that budded. That’s what happened then.

What’s the pattern? Come to v 9-12. This is a figure, or parable. Christ didn’t go into a temple made with hands, he went into heaven, so the pot of manna ascended into heaven where it has remained incorruptible for two millennia.  The word that was made flesh, was the manna that came down from heaven and now it is going to ascend up into heaven where it is going to remain in an uncorrupted state – on the father’s right hand, overshadowed by the Cherubim the angelic host for that period of 2,000 years.  He came down from heaven because he was the word made flesh, he went back into heaven in the typology of the mercy seat between the cherubim in the heavens.

What has it got to do with me? Rev. To him that overcomes I am going to give to eat of the hidden manna there is a bigger picture at play in this whole story.  How does it expand out?  Before the children of. Israel can eat of the manna they had to see the glory of God Ex 16:10. How does this apply to us, well it has to happen to us. John 1:14 we beheld his glory. We eat of his flesh, in the evening they ate the quail. After they saw the glory. Jer. 15:16  Your words were found and I did eat them, they ate the flesh. So what came next, night came next.  Night is speaking of Death, because night passes for every single one of us, and it is a process, we first take part of the word then after the night they partake of the manna.

Night is followed by an awakening, Dan 12:2 many that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake. The sleepers in the dust awake, some to life some to death. This is the process going on. 1Cor 10:16-17. In the morning there was the manna. We are all partakers of that one bread and that one body. Jesus was gathered they day before the Sabbath, he did not corrupt but we all will, however, if we gather the word into ourselves we become part of the one bread and the one body, this is Christ.  His body doesn’t corrupt, so matter how decrepit we might be now, by gathering the word day by day it sustains us so eventually we will never corrupt. We are the bread and we are the manna. Isa 26:19 This is the passage of hope.  Read it without the italics. The dew is as the dew of herbs and the earth shall cast our the dead. My dead body now arisen again.

The analogy he uses there is dew. Dew comes in the morning, all around the host and out of that comes the dew and then comes the manna. They are now the bread of life anyone that eats this bread will live forever, we are incorporated when the sun arises to evaporate the dew and the manna is left, Mal 4:2.  The sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings. After which you go forth. Phil 3:20-21

This is the completion of this process that has been taking place. Christ is the manna in the pot put in the ark of the covenant symbolically in heaven, the incorruptible manna in the heavens. So Phil 3:20-21 “Our conversation is in heaven.” In heaven and he is going to change our vile body to be like his glorious body, because we all partake of that bread and we become part of that one loaf. We are part of the body of the Lord Jesus Christ. The glory of God takes place, we eat the word, night comes along, we die, we are woken, the sleepers in the dust, we become dew, one body formed as manna because the Sun of righteousness shines, and we are fashioned like his glory, so we are all participants in this.

The Lord wasn’t the only one who was transfigured, there were Moses and Elijah, the law and the prophets and the disciples say it was good for us to be here with you. So this is the whole process taken place in the parable of the manna.  Keep taking the word in because if you eat of the flesh we will live forever.  But Israel said “Their soul loatheth this light bread.” We must love that bread, it is our life. Gen 15:12. Abraham and the horror of darkness.

One last little phrase, “the white stone.” Rev 2:17 The word stone is G5586 “cephas” a smooth white pebble. In the ancient courts of justice accused with black pebble white was vote of acquittal. Acts 26:10  I gave my “voice” against them = word “pebbles” “cephas.”  We are looking for the white pebble, Matt 25:21, 34, 46. Well done thou good and faithful servant.  Inherit the kingdom. Everlasting punishment, or life. Mann hidden until Sun rises, then they can partake of it, ie to until Jesus Christ comes, and we need the verdict of forgiveness, the white stone. All that symbology dovetails together, we are going to be changed to be like him.

Bible Study Notes for Bible Marking purposes ( Transcript by Sis Fay Berry)

Study 3 – Revelation – Pergamos –  Jonathan Bowen

Continuing our study in Revelation, Rev 2:12-17.

Last week we looked at the whole idea of  the Name, “thou hast not denied my Name,” and now we are going to look at the section, that “you have not denied my faith.” We are going to see some of the pieces coming together that we have been discussing especially when it comes to this idea of Satan, where he dwells, and the formalisation of the apostasy as it would grow and it would take over the first century area after a little bit of time.

Coming in at Rev 2:13 1 we are going to look at this phrase, “you have not denied my faith.” So that goes hand in hand with the “holding of the name,” and you have “not denied my faith,” the two concepts marry up pretty close. Faith is the word in the Greek 4102 pistos = faith. The idea of conviction of the truth. Heb 11:1 I am going to read  it from Brother Thomas’ translation, “Faith is the assurance of things promised, the conviction of the truth of transactions not witnessed by the believer.”

“Faith is the substance,” and it is this word “substance” that we want to zone in on. It is the idea of a confidence or a firm trust or an assurance.

It is the Greek word 5287

ὑπόστασις

hupostasis

hoop-os’-tas-is

From a compound of G5259 and G2476; a setting under (support), that is, (figuratively) concretely essence, or abstractly assurance (objectively or subjectively): – confidence, confident, person, substance.

Total KJV occurrences: 5

So that puts a little bit of a different spin on it. The way Dr Thomas translates this as “faith is the assurance” of what has been promised and it is for the “things being hoped for,” it is not something that is in the past, it is something on-going which can be embraced as realities. These are the things by which you are saved, if you keep them in memory. It is not something that was once believed, say by Abraham, it is a present reality and is an on-going faith to be believed in.

Acts 8:12 – The things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ. So this is the dual aspect of the hope. The Jews understood the concept of the Kingdom of God, they had that down pat, that was their focus and that’s what they looked for.  Christians today believe in the Name of Jesus Christ, and that’s where the focus goes, but they have forgotten about the Kingdom of God part. The disciples didn’t quite understand the concept of “the Name,”

Bro Thomas in Eureka says that in AD 130 the literal kingdom of God on earth was no longer believed or taught. Instead the doctrine of the Nikolaitanes was taught which was blasphemous and unsound. Amazing that 30 years after John is off the scene, you’ve got people who don’t believe in the literal kingdom of God, but instead are looking for souls to go to heaven. The concept of Kingdom vs heaven going is really the issue and they were beginning to lose that at that time. In Galatians, “I marvel that you are so soon removed.”  These were the fundamentals and they were already being lost at that time.

But Pergamos was holding on to the doctrine of the Name, and the name and the kingdom being synonymous, they were still holding on to truth and so they hadn’t denied his faith.

Rev 2:13 – I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

Ἀντίπας

Antipas

an-tee’-pas

Contracted for a compound of G473 and a derivative of G3962; Antipas, a Christian: – Antipas.

Total KJV occurrences: 1

Here we have a typical character that comes into this, Anatipas. You’ve got the “holding fast of the name,” you’ve got the “not denying the faith,”  during the time when “Antipas” was a “faithful martyr.”

What does the name mean?

Antipas = 493 = and it is constructed from two words, “anti” = 473 = against, or opposed to, or opposite to, or in place of (Christ).

Pas = 3962 = from Pater = father, well what exactly does that mean,

Well father is more than just the word “father” it is also a progenitor of the whole family.  Dr Thomas uses the phrase “against all,” against the “whole family,” as it were.

Satan is quite often used for the ecclesial apostasy, or adversary, and the diabolos is quite often used as the State  accuser ie in 1 Peter 5:8 “your adversary the devil walked about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. ”

One is ecclesial and the other is the establishment of the day.  In John’s day that would have been Pagan, the diabolos of the day, in Revelation Ch 12. The Satan in the ecclesia was actually persecuted by the diabolos, because the diabolos was actually the pagan accuser who was against both the Woman and her child of Rev 12.

So Antipas was persecuted by both.

You have the Diabolos (Paganism) persecuting the ecclesia and in so doing he is persecuting the Satan class within the ecclesia as well as the Antipas class (the faithful brothers and sisters within the ecclesia). The Satan class (false brothers and sisters) whilst being persecuted by the Diabolos (Paganism) are at the same time persecuting the Antipas class (the faithful) within the ecclesia. This is what the context of Pergamos is all about. The difference between the Satan class and the Antipas is that under persecuting from the Diabolos, the Satan class do not remain true to the truth, they sell out to the Diabolos, but the Antipas class, under persecution from the Diabolos (Paganism) remain true to The Name.

The Diabolos and the Satan are contending for supremacy, but the Antipas class are “contending earnestly for the faith.”

The lesson to us is don’t be part of the Satan class within the ecclesia. There are those who want power, authority and wealth within the ecclesia and we should not be found in that Satan class. We need to be found within the Antipas class within the ecclesia. If you ever feel that you are rising to “power” within your ecclesia, that is when you may find yourself moving from the Antipas class to the Satan class within the ecclesia.

Antipas is called “the faithful martyr.” he word “martyr” in the modern usage of the word, has a meaning which is  means they are put to death for something, or persecuted for something, but that is not what it means in the Greek.

G3144   (Strong). – μάρτυς. –  martus. – mar’-toos

Of uncertain affinity; a witness (literally [judicially] or figuratively [generally]); by analogy a “martyr”: – martyr, record, witness.

Total KJV occurrences: 34

Martyr = 3144 – It literally means a witness, as in an “eye-witness,” somebody who is a spectator.

So if you were calling a witness in a court case, you are calling a “martyr.”

The Lord Jesus Christ was a “faithful witness.”  He was called before Pilate, and he gave a faithful witness. He testified faithfully of the truth.

So that is what this Antipas class is, it is opposed to the State Paganism, and they are also opposed to the ecclesial apostasy and they are witnessing for the Truth.  They are not ambitious ladder climbers within the ecclesia and they are not looking for power in the world. They are looking to hold fast the Name and no deny the faith.

Revelation 12:1-4 NIV

[1] A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. [2] She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. [3] Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. [4] Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.

You have four characters here.

1. A woman

2. The woman who becomes pregnant

3. A man-child – You have later on coming out of the woman, the man child, which leaves the woman by herself bereft of her seed later on.

It is one character initiallly and then it splits into two.

4. Then there is “the dragon”

The woman originally was an apostate class, and she had inside of herself “a remnant” which was the Antipas class. She also had inside herself the apostasy, to begin with. However, she then brings forth this man child, but notice what happens to the man child.

The dragon at this point of time is the Diabolos, the Devil, and it is Pagan Rome and this, of course, follows on from Daniel – the fourth beast was the Dragon, and he had similar characteristics, the ten horns and etc.  and then you have a change that takes place.

Revelation 12:5-9 NIV

[5] She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. [6] The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. [7] Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. [8] But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. [9] The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Here we have changes that are taking place.  The woman brings forth a child and the child is a man child.

So this is the birth of the apostasy.  It is now formalised, and it separates from  the woman.

The woman is the ecclesia bereft of the Apostasy. She still has apostasy in her but the main apostasy is separated out from her.

She goes off into the wilderness where she has a place prepared for her of God, so the remnant head off into the wilderness. The man child, what does he do?

He’s been the Satan in the ecclesia, so he ascends up to heaven. Remember the Satan in the ecclesia want power and authority and they are wrestling against the Dragon, the Devil,  and the two of them are battling for ascendancy.

Well,  of course, the man child, the Christian apostasy, gets the ascendancy under the man Constantine, gets the ascendancy, because he adopts the Christian religion and uses it as a tool and he throws out the Dragon “that old serpent called the Devil AND Satan. The Dragon now becomes both the Devil and Satan.  Whereas before, Satan was inside the ecclesia, now he is called the “Devil and Satan.”

Why is that? Why, because he now comes under the authority of the man child, so he becomes the weapon that the man child is going to use against the woman.

Revelation 12:11-12 NIV

[11] They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. [12] Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”

We see here that the rejoicing that is going on is going on in heaven, because they have overcome him by the word of their testimony. You’ve got to remember this is in symbolic language. The heaven we are talking about here  this is speaking about those who have ascended to the political heaven. Michael and his angels have made war against the Devil and his angels, and they have cast them out, they have cast out the dragon from the political heavens.

So Constantine’s Christian embodiment, the Roman power under him and the Christians whthemselves with him have lifted themselves up into the political heavens and are now in a position of authority, where they can rejoice because they have thrown Paganism out.

Does this help the saints? Not at all. In fact the Devil has come down now to the level that the saints are at, and now he is going to persecute them.

Revelation 12:13 NIV

[13] When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.

Revelation 12:16 NIV

[16] But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

When you look at the Dragon here, when he is cast out, what’s he going to do? He’s going to go and persecute the remnant of her seed, the ones that are left over. And who are this seed? These are the ones who keep the testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. So you have a separation that is taking place.  Within Christianity. There was controversies over Christian beliefs, so Constantine wanted to standardised the beliefs and so he came out behind the Trinity.  He harnessed the power of the Roman Empire and he utilised it to persecute the saints, especially in North Africa, the Donatists, because they stood against his Trinitarian views and against the established Church. He set against them the different forces of Rome and tried to squash the remnant.

When you look at the picture that you get here in Rev 12 it demonstrates very clearly what we are looking at in the Letters to the seven Ecclesia’s. The letters to the Ecclesia’s kind of form a platform on which the rest of the book is then built. You have in this picture the embryo beginnings of what would become the formalised religion. It will become a system which will take over and rule the Roman world and would go on to persecute the brethren. Flesh rises up and flesh wants power.

Revelation 2:14 NIV

[14] Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: There are some among you who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin so that they ate food sacrificed to idols and committed sexual immorality.

This is the section that is dealing with Balaam, so remember in our structure of the book, of each letter, we talked about the fact that the Lord identifies himself with one of the characteristics of the “Man of the One” from every letter.  He then turns around and uses them as the commendation of each ecclesia, “I know your works, you haven’t denied my faith, you are holding on” and so on.  With most of them, he also levels against them is criticism, and as we get into Pergamos, the criticism he levels at them is that of “Balaam.”

Here we have another character that is introduced into the letter.  So just as Antipas is a typical character, he is not literally a brother, neither was Balaam resurrected from the dead and brought to the Pergamos ecclesia, it is a typical group of people that we are dealing with.

So they “hold the doctrine of Balaam. Immediately, what this tells you, is that a this is a group within the ecclesia who holds false doctrine, but it is a doctrine that is associated with Balaam. He taught Balak to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication. So this doctrine is a stumbling block which is used elsewhere of “offence.” So when people say they are “offended,” they actually use the word completely wrong.  It actually means “tripped.”  So that’s what is going on here, he is causing them to trip by putting a stumbling block in front of them. How has he done it? Well, he has apostatised them by teaching them to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit fornication.

So you have idolatry, and immorality. That’s the issue that was being brought into the ecclesia. Now that is spiritual idolatry and spiritual immorality. In Israel’s time it was literal but in this case here it is more of a spiritual idolatry and spiritual immorality,

G903  – Βαλαάμ

Balaam.  –  bal-ah-am’

Of Hebrew origin [H1109]; Balaam, a mesopotamian (symbolic of a false teacher): – Balaam.

Total KJV occurrences: 3Balaam is the Hebrew word 1109

So just looking at the word “Balaam” and we are going to go back into the Hebrew for this. H 1109 which is the word “Balaam” and it is an alliteration, and it is made up of two Hebrew words,and so you have first of all H1077 which is the word Bill which comes from another word H1086 which is Balah which means “wasting.”

So the first part of it, the Bal part of

Balaam = “wasting”

The second part of it is H5971 which is the word Am which means “people.”  Remember in Hosea, Lo Ammi, it is defined as “You are not my people. So if you put these two words together, it means “the wasting of the people.”  Now remember what the Nikolaitanes were?  They were “vanquishes of the people.”

Let’s go back to Numbers and take a look at how this whole system has been worked out.

Num 22 and this is the story of Balaam. Balaam was absolutely blind with ambition and stupidity.

Numbers 22:7-8 NIV

[7] The elders of Moab and Midian left, taking with them the fee for divination. When they came to Balaam, they told him what Balak had said. [8] “Spend the night here,” Balaam said to them, “and I will report back to you with the answer the Lord gives me. ” So the Moabite officials stayed with him.

This is the motive for what Balaam does. Balak wanted Balaam, who was a prophet, to curse the children of Israel and get rid of them out of the way, and they come with rewards. “They bring rewards of divination.”  He turns around and says, “I will see what God says.”  This tells you right away, that he wants the rewards. We go through a series of warnings to Nalaam, seven warnings in Num 22.

So here is the first warning of God in Num 22:12 “Do not go with them.”

Numbers 22:9-13,15 NIV

[9] God came to Balaam and asked, “Who are these men with you?” [10] Balaam said to God, “Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab, sent me this message: [11] ‘A people that has come out of Egypt covers the face of the land. Now come and put a curse on them for me. Perhaps then I will be able to fight them and drive them away.’ ” [12] But God said to Balaam, “Do not go with them. You must not put a curse on those people, because they are blessed. ” [13] The next morning Balaam got up and said to Balak’s officials, “Go back to your own country, for the Lord has refused to let me go with you.” [15] Then Balak sent other officials, more numerous and more distinguished than the first.

So Balak ups the “anti.”

Numbers 22:15-19 NIV

[15] Then Balak sent other officials, more numerous and more distinguished than the first. [16] They came to Balaam and said: “This is what Balak son of Zippor says: Do not let anything keep you from coming to me, [17] because I will reward you handsomely and do whatever you say. Come and put a curse on these people for me.” [18] But Balaam answered them, “Even if Balak gave me all the silver and gold in his palace, I could not do anything great or small to go beyond the command of the Lord my God. [19] Now spend the night here so that I can find out what else the Lord will tell me. ”

Balaam’s motive again. He is offered promotion, honour and houses of sliver.  Lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life. Promotion, you’ve got pride, and Balaam wants the rewards of unrighteousness.

KJV)  And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do.Numbers 22:20-21 NIV

So what is missing in Balaam’s action in the morning? God said to him the night before “If the men come to call thee, rise up and go with them.” There is no record of the men coming to him, but he gets up in the morning, saddles up and says “Let’s go.”  This is almost a “fleece” type of situation, if they “come to you,” you go, if they don’t, then don’t go with them. None of that, he wants the “rewards,” and so he is raring to go.

So here’s your second warning, God’s basically telling him “don’t go.” Don’t go do this unless it is initiated. So what happens is God’s anger is kindled against him “because he went out,” and now the angel of God is going to stand as an adversary to him.

Numbers 22:23-24 NIV

[23] When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, it turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat it to get it back on the road. [24] Then the angel of the Lord stood in a narrow path through the vineyards, with walls on both sides.

So what happens here is, the donkey has its “antenna” up but Balaam doesn’t, and there is a “stumbling block” put in his way, “do not go down this road.” You would think that Balaam might have thought, ‘perhaps God is trying to tell me something here, perhaps I should not go down this path.” Instead, he beats the donkey.

Warning Number 5 comes along in v 25.

Numbers 22:25 NIV

[25] When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it pressed close to the wall, crushing Balaam’s foot against it. So he beat the donkey again.

Here again you have the warning of God against him and now he feels physical pain when the donkey crushes his foot against the wall and Baldlam beats again on the donkey, not a thought that God might be telling him something.

Numbers 22:26-27 NIV

[26] Then the angel of the Lord moved on ahead and stood in a narrow place where there was no room to turn, either to the right or to the left. [27] When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat it with his staff.

Now you have a situation where the donkey can’t turn to the right hand or the left, so now the donkey just drops down underneath Balaam. To me, the next two verses are the funniest of anything.

Numbers 22:28-30 NIV

[28] Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times? ” [29] Balaam answered the donkey, “You have made a fool of me! If only I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now. ” [30] The donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit of doing this to you?” “No,” he said.

(That’s got to be one of the corniest lines, “He said, nay!” )

This is how stupid Balaam is, he goes through all these warnings, five warnings leading up to this. Balaam is in a blind rage and then the donkey speaks to him. Instead of saying “hark, the donkey spoke!” Balaam starts speaking to the donkey, he argues back with it. Would you not have been a little shocked by this time? But that’s how stupid flesh is. Balaam went through all these warnings but all he could think of was of promotion, honour and houses of silver. They had become a stumbling block in is way, and an offence unto him. Those who go “the way of Balaam” bring these things in as doctrines because they are blind to their own selfish ambition.

That’s one level that you can take this on but there is another level. Has there been times in my life when I have been set to do something and I knew that it was wrong, and so I go down this road and for some reason it doesn’t work out. You should stop and say, “OK the angel’s trying to tell me something  here, I should not go down this path, but like Balaam, we are as stupid as a donkey, and I think the donkey is the smart one in this case, but like Balaam we can be blinded with our own desire, whether it is lust, or wanting money or power or whatever, and so we try again, and then it causes us physical pain. Even then we don’t think “maybe God is trying to tell me to stop going down this road,” but eventually we just get blind with rage and we beat on this thing and then with this completely obvious thing of the donkey talking to us and we still don’t get it. We go on, like Balaam, and then v 31, finally God opens Balaams eyes and he sees the angel standing in the way. Finally, he gets it, and he realises that the donkey was just trying to save his life.

But that’s not the end of the story., because he REALLY wants the reward of divination. He wants promotion, he wants honour, and he wants houses of silver.  He can’t curse Israel, because God won’t let him do it, so instead, what he does is he says to Balak, “God’s a jealous God, so instead of me trying to curse Israel, if we lead Israel astray, God will destroy them.”  So they send in the Moabites. If you take a look as the story plays out, Num 25:1-5.

Numbers 25:1-5 NIV

[1] While Israel was staying in Shittim, the men began to indulge in sexual immorality with Moabite women, [2] who invited them to the sacrifices to their gods. The people ate the sacrificial meal and bowed down before these gods. [3] So Israel yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor. And the Lord’s anger burned against them. [4] The Lord said to Moses, “Take all the leaders of these people, kill them and expose them in broad daylight before the Lord, so that the Lord’s fierce anger may turn away from Israel.” [5] So Moses said to Israel’s judges, “Each of you must put to death those of your people who have yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor.”

So here you have exactly that situation, where the people engage in idolatry and immorality, and the story of Cosby the Israelite man comes up where the two commit immorality right in front of the tabernacle in view of all the people.  Phineas slays the two of them, Num 25:6. The sheer bald-facedness of flesh is seen here, and our flesh can be the same. The p pint here is, why God is angry with those of Balaam is because they have led the people to this for their own reward, for their own promotion, their own honour, and for their own houses of silver, they have made merchandise of them.

Just to finish the story off, read Josh 13: 22, because this is what happens to Balaam when they get into the land and they finally take it.

Joshua 13:22 NIV

[22] In addition to those slain in battle, the Israelites had put to the sword Balaam son of Beor, who practiced divination.

So here you have Balaam, once they get into the land they slay him with the sword. Remember God’s two-edged sword? It is now used against Balaam in that sense.

2 Peter 2:15-17 NIV

[15] They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Bezer, who loved the wages of wickedness. [16] But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey—an animal without speech—who spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness. [17] These people are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them.

That about sums it up doesn’t it? What was their motive? They loved the wages of unrighteousness, this was for profit, but i wasn’t just for profit, if you remember back, their is profit of money but there is also the profit of honour. Peter says, there are people today as there were false prophets among and there are going to be false teachers among you who will lead you astray, and this is what they are going to do.

Jude 1:11 NIV

[11] Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error; they have been destroyed in Korah’s rebellion.

So they ran after the error of Balaam, but notice what he says, “greedily” “for reward,” so that is what they were in this for.. So if we plug that back into Revd 2:14

Revelation 2:14 NIV

[14] Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: There are some among you who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin so that they ate food sacrificed to idols and committed sexual immorality.

What he says there about these people, this apostate system that was percolating inside of the ecclesia at this point of time, is one that is basically “greedy.” This was the way it was developing, and what he says in Rev 2:14 is that he had a few things against them because they had those there who held the doctrine of Balaam – what was the teaching? He taught Balak to cast a stumbling block before Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and commit fornication – he was a teacher, right? He was a teacher of unrighteousness. He taught them error so that he could get honour and a house full of silver. When you look at the establishment today and back of course to the time of Brother Thomas, that’s what the churches do. They sell religion. That is why the Christadelphian have maintained a practice of not paying any of our instructors and if we do, we have run into problems. We don’t pay our preachers, so then you can’t buy the message. We wish to buy the truth and sell it not. Balaam has become a representative of the class who do sell religion and Balaam had a people who were gullible enough to follow him. 24,000 people died because they gullibly followed Balaam. Whatever is taught has to be vetted against the word of God.

Acts 20:29-30,34 NIV

[29] I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. [30] Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. [34] You yourselves know that these hands of mine have supplied my own needs and the needs of my companions.

Galatians 1:6-7 NIV

[6] I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— [7] which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.

Galatians 2:4 NIV

[4] This matter arose because some false believers had infiltrated our ranks to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus and to make us slaves.

Galatians 6:12 NIV

[12] Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.

What is the first recorded sin after Christ ascended to heaven? Ananias and Saphira, lied for money’s sake, “filthy lucre.”

Titus 1:10-11 NIV

[10] For there are many rebellious people, full of meaningless talk and deception, especially those of the circumcision group. [11] They must be silenced, because they are disrupting whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach—and that for the sake of dishonest gain.

2 Timothy 3:1-9 NIV

[1] But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. [2] People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, [3] without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, [4] treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— [5] having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. [6] They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, [7] always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. [8] Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. [9] But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.

The lesson for us is, don’t be caught up in it. Do not get drawn into these things. Do not become susceptible to false doctrine because we are either working against the truth or for the truth.

This is an ongoing series given at the home of Bro Jonathan Bowen (Ontario).
The subject of Prophecy is essential for a complete understanding of God’s plan and purpose with the Earth. The Book of revelation was given by Christ to John so that the generations that would follow would have the means whereby to ascertain the signs of the times in relation to themselves. In each class, Jonathan is leading us through the book of Revelation in a relaxed and thoughful manner engaging and involving those present, illustrating key points using a white board which we then replicate in the videos produced.

Here is the latest video in the series.

Study 2 – Revelation – Pergamos (part 2) Jonathan Bowen

Rev 2:12-17 – In the last class we looked at the beginning of Pergamos, which was at one time capital of Asia, and became one of the key cities in Roman Province of Asia until Ephesus took its place as capital. “The man of one” is not a static symbol it is an active symbol of the saints. This “man of one” is is working in the ecclesias and would use his “the sword of his mouth” to fight against the apostasy within the ecclesia. He is actively engaged in the ecclesia and with this letter and what we learn from it, we understand that we must deal with apostasy within the ecclesia, because if we don’t, Jesus will. We have to fight with the sword of our mouth; that is we need to speak the truth whether people “hearken or whether they forbear.”

Then we looked at where “Satan’s seat” is, relating it to the “synagogue of Satan” which is the adversary within the ecclesia. There were those within the ecclesia who were hostile to truth and who were working against the apostles and against the ecclesia. The “Synagogue of Satan” was now formalised into a group, and no longer just individuals within the ecclesia and by the time we come to the letter to Pergamos we find that Pergamos is now its headquarters. It is where “Satan’s seat” is, and the word for “seat” is throne, so this is where they ruled. A system was being developed from within the ecclesia which was an apostasy and it finall departed from within the ecclesia because “it went out from us” because they were not “of us.”  This soon became a formalised apostasy and we looked at the gestation period, that started in AD 33 with Annanias and Saphira who conceived a thing in their hearts and  conception had taken place, and if you follow that with the gestation period of 280 day years, you come to 313 AD when Constantine came along – “the man of sin,” who elevated the church right up to where you read in Thessalonians that he would “sit in the temple of God showing itself that it was God.”

Back at the time of Pergamos where we are now the apostasy is still in an embryo state, the full formal separation doesn’t really happen until Rev 12, and the apostasy then departs out of the ecclesia, but it is in the process of formalising in the area of Pergamos.

“I know thy works and where thou dwellers,” where “Satan’s seat is,” “thou holders fast my name” and you “have not denied my faith.” So we started to look at this idea of “The Name,” and we looked at the fact that the Lord Jesus Christ was a fulfilment of the Name, and we will look at it a little bit more tonight. We looked at the fact that the Lord Jesus Christ, being that fulfilment was the Name of God made flesh. He was “the word made flesh.” The apostasy was beginning to teach a doctrine whereby the Lord was no longer to be considered of flesh and blood. There were two Adams, the first Adam and the second Adam. The first Adam was made of the dust with the Spirit of God working upon that, forming Adam out of the ground and he became a “living soul.” In that state, he did have the lust of the flesh but it was latent, not activated. It wasn’t like he was there with a bias towards sin, he was a clean slate, the ability to sin was there, but it wasn’t awakened. Dr Thomas uses the concept in Elpis Israel of puberty. You can take a small child that might be three years old and sometimes 6 years old, they can run around absolutely naked, and they have no concept, they just don’t realise it, until they hit a certain age and then they realise what there nature is and what there bodies are, and on that level, they are awakened to it. That’s what Adam was before the fall, like a child prior to puberty.

The Lord Jesus Christ was different though. Sometimes in our community people get confused because they try to relate him as being the second Adam and they draw that analogy and they try to then state that if he’s the second Adam then he is the exact same replication of the first Adam and what he is, but he is not. Adam was created out of the dust with an inactive system of lust, I guess you could say, whereas the Lord Jesus Christ was created out of Mary’s womb, right? there is a difference. She was a woman and we read in Job, “can a man bring clean out of unclean?” No. If you come from unclean, you are going to be unclean. He was flesh, so that flesh had propensities, but they were activated propensities. It is not as though they were latent and they were just sitting there and not doing anything, being dormant, they were activated and he made the conscious choice, being empowered by the word of God, to “choose the good” as Isaiah tells us, and “refuse the evil,” and Isaiah says “butter and honey may he eat, that he may know how to refuse the evil and choose the good. ” Well how does that work? Well, butter is milk so you have the idea of the milk of the word, honey the honey of the word. So it is the word of God that he is going to eat and so it is going to enable him to make that right choice. Put a little differently though, butter and honey, the land was going to flow with “milk and honey.” So the promise of the word is what he devoured and that’s what we read in Heb Ch 12. That “for the joy that was set before him, he despised the cross, endured the shame and henceforth is sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” He fed actively upon the food of the word, the promises to Abraham that empowered him to overcome flesh. “Morning, by morning God opened his ear.” So every morning this little boy woke up, Yahweh spoke to him and filled his mind and heart with the truth, so his cup was filled to the brim, every single day, so that when these temptation and desires came upon him,  immediately he had the word of God to combat them, just like his temptation in the wilderness, “hath thou not read,” “thus it is written.” So the word was ready, sharper than any two-edged sword, it was able to to “divide asunder the soul and spirit, and discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Well, Jeremiah tells us that the “heart of man is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked,” and he had the word to “discern the thoughts and intents of his heart,” so that he was able to see ‘Yes, this might be what my flesh wants to do but I’m not going to do it because this is what my God wants me to do.’ Evidence of that is seen when he says to Peter “Get thee behind me Satan, thou art an offence unto me.” Why would the Lord say that Peter was a “offence” unto him if he wasn’t affected by what Peter said? He obviously didn’t relish being crucified, it was something he dreaded, but he knew he had to do it, and he submitted himself and “learned obedience by the things that he suffered.” So he had a will, that was separate from his Father, which was self-preservation, so he prayed in the garden, “not my will but thine be done.” He uses the word to combat that and God listens to him and sends and angel to strengthen him. So that’s the Lord Jesus Christ as we looked at last time, He’s made of a woman, made under the Law, he’s tempted in all points as we are, he’s flesh and blood, but he is without sin because he uses the Sword of the Spirit to discern those thoughts as they come to him and it doesn’t matter whether it is an external or an internal thought that arises, the point is that when the thought comes, ultimately it must be internalised to process it. So it could be that somebody says to me you could be as a God. Now I didn’t come up with that idea myself, somebody presented it to me, the point is, it went into my head and it has to be processed. It has to enter into our brains. Now if that was Adam that had to be interjected. The Lord Jesus Christ was made like we are, and we are told in James, every man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed. Well, the Lord Jesus Christ was tempted, he had lust, he had desire, but he never capitulated to that desire, he wasn’t an immaculate conception, he wasn’t a clean flesh in that sense, where he had no human nature, it was there, it was working on him, but he had the sword of the Spirit and he discerned those thoughts, figured out what was God’s will and what was the will of the flesh and so he says to Peter you are an offence to me, well, an offence is a stumbling block, and Peter could not have been a “stumbling block” if he couldn’t have stumbled. It is no different to saying “he was tempted in all points like as we are and yet without sin,” well you can’t be tempted if you cannot complete the temptation. So if that is never a possibility, then it is not a temptation. The Lord was not different to us in his nature, he was different to us in his equipment. He was equipped with the Word of God right from the beginning because he was the Word made flesh. So that’s kind of the back drop, a long-winded review of what we’ve looked at, a bit more of an explanation of what we were talking about, the fact that he was made of a woman. So the Holy Spirit worked on Mary’s womb and then made in her that holy thing that was called the Son of God. So that being the case, the issue is “you have not denied my name.” That’s what we are going to hone in on now, because the denial of the Name is to deny that Jesus came in the flesh. Remember that the Spirit of anti Christ denied that the Lord Jesus Christ came in the flesh. He was flesh and blood, but his blood was more powerful than any of our’s ever could be, because it was perfect.

So let’s take a look at a couple of passages as we pick up on this thought and we run with it this week.

The Power of the blood of Christ

Lev 17:11 – The life of the flesh is in the blood. He gave his blood to make an atonement for your souls. Two of those words are identical – Life and Soul, exactly the same in Hebrew.

5315 – Nephesh – Soul – Life

That which breathes and it is the person also defined as the “inner being” or “self.” If I were to put a plastic bag over my head and there was no longer oxyge in my body, your “soul” is going to depart, because it is your life. It is not an imprinted binary code that’s going to float off with some kind of program, whatever, remember the principle of Genesis Ch 2, “In the beginning, God created man out of the dust of the ground, so we have  dust and he breathed into him the breath of life and a man becomes a living soul, a “nephesh.”

You have the dust, plus the “ruach,” the breath, gives you a “living soul,” and what works on the dust is, of course, the spirit. In this we have the formula of life. If you take away any of those components, you no longer have a “living soul.”  If you remove the breath of life you don’t have the components for a living soul. If you remove the dust, you also don’t have the components for a living soul.

There is no such thing as a disembodied soul, it doesn’t exist. You are either alive or your dead, it is binary. On off with the light switch. If it is off, there is nothing, you are finished. If it is on you are alive. That’s the difference between a living person and a dead person, it is all about electricity.

Once a baby takes its first breath, it is a living soul, before that it gets breath from its mother. Under the Law, if a man kicked a woman in the womb, and murdered the child, it was not considered homicide. It is different how God looks at it.

Once that child is born, if you murdered it, it was considered homicide. Now it is not the way our society today looks at it, but that’s the way it was under the Law of Moses. It’s a great ethical debate, but I’m not going to go there.

From a biblical point of view the flip side to that is, we are told that Jeremiah was called from the womb, Samson was a Nazarite from the womb. We are told that the babe leaped in the womb of Elizabeth, so I will leave you with those thoughts to take in your own head and think about later.  Once that breath of life comes into the lungs, it becomes a “living soul.”

The Lord Jesus Christ, the life was in his blood, so when he gave his blood, he gave his life. He made his soul an offering for sin, because it is the same thing. You need all the components to be a living soul.

Take away any one of those components and you are no longer a living soul. So that is your formula for life and Gen 2:7. So that’s one side of it, but what he did, is made his life an atonement for their souls. So this is the word “life”

5313  “life” – this is going to be an atonement for their souls.

The word atonement is 3722 the Hebrew word is Katharine and it means to coat or cover with pitch. Gen 6:14. Noah took the ark and he covered it with pitch and he made a covering for it.

So what is the little beanie that the Jews wear on their heads? It is a keeper, it is a cover and it covers a head. The lid of ark is called a Kapharet, It is a covering. The same word used for the mercy seat. What is the Hebrew word for the day of Atonement? Yom Kippur they are all the same things. The atonement is a simple subject, but it is man that confuses it. I hate the word “propitiation” because I can’t spell it, and it is confusing and it means “the lid.”

When you use this great big long word it is simply the same word as Kaphar, the keeper, the covering. The mercy seat is the propitiation, why? Because it sits on the lid of the ark, and it is the covering over the ark. The Cherubim cover the mercy seat. They are the covering of the mercy seat, so that’s all rooted in the same word. The day of Atonement is the day of covering. So what did he do, he gave the life of the flesh which is in the blood, to make a covering for your souls. Think back to Genesis. God made coats of skins to cover their flesh. How did he do it, he slew a lamb from the foundation of the world. Without the shedding of blood there can be no remission of sins. So blood for blood. Now with an animal, it is not good enough. It is a teaching tool, but it is not sufficient. It is pointing forward to the real deal, the Lord Jesus Christ. The atonement is actually fairly simplest the end of the day. Irish covering. By using great big words we perpetuate controversies and keep them going. Boil it down to its basic components so we can understand it. When you think of all the things that are tied into this little word Kaphar, it makes it so much more understandable.

In Pergamos they had not denied his name. This is all tied into the Name

Psa 49:6-9 – The principle being demonstrated here is “wealth cannot redeem” you can’t buy your way “into heaven.”  Sorry St Peter and everybody else. His point is those who trust in wealth, none of them can redeem his brother.  This is getting into the whole subject of the Gail, the redeemer, and somewhere I’ve got three classes on that that I will put on line with this, but the Gaail – the redeemer had to be a kinsman. Ruth and Boaz, Boaz was a near kinsman. The Lord Jesus Christ has to be related to those he came to redeem. If he is not related, he dan’t be the redeemer, he is not qualified, so he has to come  in the nature of the children of Abraham, in order to redeem those that are there. He usually had to be a wealthy man because he had to buy his brother out of slavery, the problem is, none of us are wealthy enough to really redeem our brother. We don’t have the capability of doing that. Let’s look at the words that are here to help us to understand this,  You have “redeem”, 6299 Padang and it means to rescue or ransom. “Redemption” 6306 and it is the same kind of idea as his word  6299 and is related to it. Then there is “ransom” 3724  Kopher  = a cover, figuratively a redemption price, which is the price of life. We don’t have the wealth to do this, but Jesus did. He did have the ability to redeem us.

The blood of bulls and goats is not good enough. Rev 7:9 illustrates this point. A great multitude, an innumerable multitude. If my brother James fell on hard times I might have to buy him out of slavery. If I had ten brothers, then it might be a hard job. Here is what Jesus redeems, an innumerable multitude out of all nations and he is related to all of them because he is a “son of man.”  They are all clothed with white robes and are before the throne Rev 7:13-19. Made white in the blood of the lamb. The blood was an atonement for the soul. What are these people depicted as having? “coverings.”  What did Adam and Eve have in the garden? Coats of skin. They were required to shed blood in order to be effective. What are these coverings and how come they are white? Because it is the blood of the Lamb. It required the sacrifice of the perfect Lamb.

Rev 5:9-10 This is all tied up in the Name of Jesus Christ. They have been redeemed by thy blood. His blood was an atonement for the soul. The ransom paid that nobody could afford was the blood of the Lamb which ransoms us to our God. That’s what has been paid to qualify us to be kings and priests. How valuable is that? Well with it you can buy a whole multitude out of every kindred tongue people on the planet, because he is related to them all. If you separate him from that he can no longer redeem you because he is not related. It is blood for blood, life for life that is needed.

Heb 7:26-27. This tells us how effective the Lord Jesus Christ is. Pick up there his qualifications he is holy, harmless, undefined, separate from sinners.  This blood, this life is a life that is holy, it is a perfect life, given in perfect obedience to God. We are asked to “be ye holy.”

Heb 12:24 – Other people have given their lives, but it hasn’t been effective. His blood is better than Abel’s. Abel was probably one of the most righteous men that ever lived, and yet his blood was not good enough because he was made of the same stuff as us. “If thou Lord should mark iniquities, who would stand?” Psa 130:3. When you walk through those passages you realise the efficacy the power of the blood of Christ. When we talk about the “precious” blood of the lamb, it literally was “precious blood.”  Every single one of us is in a different category whatsoever. He did have an advantage over us and that was that he was “the word made flesh” and he was able to overcome and we have to follow his example and hold onto the Name. We can’t perfectly do what he wants us to do, but it is a participatory sacrifice.

Heb 10:19-20 – We are not spectators we have to participate. We enter by the blood of Christ. It is his blood that is effective enough to allow us to enter into the holiest. It is not by the blood of animal, it is by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Heb 10:28-29 – This is the power of what has been spilt for us. “If we sin wilfully after we have received a knowledge of the truth,” we tread under foot the son of God, and count the blood of the covenant as an unworthy thing. “We do despite to  the spirit of Grace.” “Despite” = 1796 enubrizo = to insult, do despite unto.

If we walk away from the Truth and do our own thing we are insulting the spirit of Grace. “Hold unto my Name” it is not just a doctrine, it is a lifestyle. This is God’s son’s blood that has been spilt. Have just read a book called “God, Shiloh and Israel, David Reuben, and he says that for a Jew, “the most frightening thing is when God turns his face from you.”  They call it “the hiding of the face.”

Paul says that he delivered somebody over to Satan that he learn not to blaspheme. To have God’s back turned towards us is most frightening thing, Isa 59:1-2. Then you are turned over to time and chance. Time and chance happens to “all” but it doesn’t happen to the people of God.  “All things are for your sake.” But we can turn back, if “with all your heart ye truly seek him.”  There’s no ‘faking it.”

Matt 26:28 – This is the blood of the new covenant shed for many for the remission of sins.  He is going to make his blood an atonement for our souls. That word “remission” is 859 Aphesis means the release from prison, or bondage. Pardon for sin. The effect of your sin is removed, the ultimate consequence of your sin is taken away. But for many, not just for one man.

1 Pet 3:21 – Baptism is equated with the “answer of a good conscience.”

“Conscience”s 4893 suneidesis, a consciousness of anything, and awareness of sin.  Think of Adam and Eve in the garden – after they sinned they hid themselves. They had and awareness, instantaneously they had gone through puberty, and they had a defiled conscience. It is the ability to take away the conscience, consciousness of sin because they are forgiven. Your sins will never be mentioned again. The love of Christ constrains us. It requires the death of the Lord Jesus Christ, because the sin nature would bruise the heel of the seed of the woman. The son of God is the “seed of the woman.” In Gen 3:15, it is the first prophecy of the miraculous birth of the Lord Jesus Christ and he would be the sacrifice for sin. God made clothes of skin for Adam and Eve, they couldn’t do it for themselves. It required the shedding of blood. Ultimately it required the blood of His son, none of us could offer a sacrifice which would achieve what His blood achieved.

Gen 22:8 God providing the sacrifice. Abreaham calls this place when all was said and done, Yahweh Yirah – Yahweh will provide. God provided himself a lamb, and a son and a redeemer.

God provided, he didn’t demand it, he provided what was necessary. This is Yahwehs doing and it is right in our eyes.

When we talk about the Name, this is what has been in the plan since the beginning of time.

Psa 22:16; Here is a Psalm, they pierced his hands and feet, they drew blood. His heel.

2 Sam 23;7 – The man that touches them will be filled with iron and the shaft of a spear. What did they do, they pierced his side with a spear and blood and water came out.

Dan 9:26 – So Messiah is king to be cut off. The disciples couldn’t understand it.

Isa 53:4-6 – He was wounded for our transgressions and Yahweh has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was also bruised, Gen 3:16

Isa 53:8,10,12 – It is for the transgression of his people that he is stricken.

Made his soul an offering for sin. The blood for the atonement of the soul, the life is in the blood. His blood an offering for sin.

He has poured out his soul unto death, same thing as saying he poured out his blood, blood and soul = the same thing.

We are saved by his life, that he lived.

Jesus wounds are a testimony of his sacrifice so they will remain in Jesus body.

The Lord Jesus Christ was the fulfilment of the Yahweh name. If you have kept my name, you have lived lives according to the pattern, His pattern. The pattern that we follow.

Understanding that, lets look at the Idea of the Name when it comes into the New Testament.

Luke 18:31-34 – They didn’t have a clue what he was talking about. Thats what it was like for the Apostles.

Luke 24:25 – O fools and slow of heart. That can be us, and we just don’t get it. You can hear it but do you really believe that the blood of Christ can cleanse you from all sin. Faith and belief same word in greek.

Luke 24:44-47 –  It’s in the law, prophets and psalms, but he has to open their understanding so they can see and believe it, that the blood of Christ is capable of cleansing us from all sin.

If we believe that, it changes the way we behave.  This is where they were, but once he opened their understanding, then they went out and taught that to other people. Once we get this, the commandment is Mark 16:16, go out and teach everybody in the Name of Jesus Christ.

Rev 2:13 – Thou holdest fast my name – There is none other name under heaven by which men can be saved. If we lose the name, there is none other name and we are done.

Acts 4:10 – By the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth –

Acts 4:12 Neither is there any other name. To hold onto that Name is to hold onto eternal life. If we lose the doctrine of the name we are done because there is no other name.

Acts 10:43 – Through his name, and that is, belief in his name becomes remission. The blood of Christ is effective if we believe.

Heb 11:6 without  belief it is impossible to please God.

Heb 8: 12:     – The things of the Name equated with the things of the Kingdom of God – they are interchangeable.

Phil 2:9-11 – A name which is above every name. He has been given a name, the name of his father, Yahshua. Singing to Jesus is not a big issue, his name is the name of the father, it is the father’s name. By grace are men saved through faith that works by love and purifies the hearth. It is an active faith. If a sinner believes the things of the deity and the name of Jesus anointed and believes with his heart, he is then in a condition to receive repentance and attain a right to eternal life through the Name of Jesus Christ. Without the faith that works by love it is impossible to please the deity.

Acts 2:37-39 – In the name of Jesus Christ.

Baptism is tied into the doctrine of the Name. Change ye your minds and be immersed upon the name of Jesus anointed into the remission of sins.

We have to be baptised upon the name of Jesus Christ.

Acts 10:48 – In the name of the Lord. We are agreeing with the name. We agree that flesh deserves to die, we agree that what Christ did was righteous. This is what God was doing right from the very beginning.

Acts 15:14 – taking out a people for his name. They are being separated from the Gentiles for his name.

1 Thess 1:1 – Listen carefully to this.

The ecclesia of the Thessalonians which is in God, the father and in the Lord Jesus Christ. Now how are they in John? They are baptised into the Name. They are named within the family.

Rom 3:22 The righteousness of God which is by faith, to all and upon all that believe. It is extended to us but it is also put on us. Unto us and upon us.

He wants to add to his name. We are baptised into, but it is also put upon us.

Put the robe on. Where am I now, I am in the robe.

If we put on Christ, we are now in Christ. That is the concept. The Name is a covering by which sin is covered that is the atonement. Psa 32:1-2

When we are baptised into Christ, we put on Christ.

That is your covering. It is your atonement for sin. The challenge is to believe it. The Lord has forgiven us, we are in the name, so act like that. Have confidence. 1Jhn 5:8. The spirit (the truth), the water (baptism) be the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. John 3:5  we have to be born of water and spirit.

Acts 22:16 – The question is asked, “Why tarried thou arise and be baptised and wash away thy sins, calling on the Name of the Lord.”

You are to be baptised and wash away your sins, calling on the name of Christ. Now the word “calling on” means epi kalameomai  = to call. It means to be surnamed or to put a name upon or attach oneself to. When a husband and wife gets married, a woman is surnamed by her husband’s name. She is under his covering. A woman is not circumcised but being attached to her husband  or father, covered by the name of father of husband. We take upon us the name of Jesus Christ whose name is our covering. Back in Pergamos, that is what it means when it says you “hold fast my Name.” Holding on to the nuts and bolts of the truth. So hence now, where are we, we are in Pergamos, “I know your works and where you dwell, where Satan’s seat is,” and where was that the birthplace of the apostasy where it is formalised. So what was the difference with them? You hold fast my Name. You remain true to your husband. And what’s going to happen? Well you are going to have that woman Jezebel come along shortly and she is going to teach people and seduce them to commit fornication and she is going to become a harlot system that is going to arise. Some of you are going to be seduced away from the gospel and they are not going to abide in the Law any more but are going to go out from us and they are going to go out into the world and formalise their own apostasy but these people in Pergamos,  you are holding onto to it. So keep doing that. Hold onto my Name and there is a blessing if we do that. We will close there.
