Updated: And It’s Still A Mystery

Christians are intrigued by prophecy. We all want to know what's going to happen. But it's the wisdom of knowing the underlying theology that allows us to identify the prophecies that are affecting our daily lives. It also gives us the solid foundation upon which to build our faith [Greek, pistis, conviction of the truth], which is vital for getting our nations right with God. Very few Christians today understand, on an intrinsic level, New Testament redemption as it applies to Christians because its foundation lies in Old Testament Israel's legal tradition. Nor do we fully understand the significance of that first century Pentecost day, originally observed in the Old Testament, occurring weeks after the resurrection of Christ. This is the most consequential day in Christianity, as opposed to those two popular false traditions that lead us into perdition. There is wisdom, in theological terms concerning the plan of God, knowing that Pentecost is more important than the creation of Adam. It was the creation day of life in the Spirit of God rather than with the spirit of man, officially marking the beginning of the Christian age, which goes to the point of our mystery. [See Rom. 8:1-11]. Along with it came the good faith promise of eternal life in the kingdom of God. Yet, knowledge of it's origin before the beginning of time, and who was redeemed is absent from most Christian literature. Therefore, it is absent in our day to day awareness of who we are, and which prophecies concern us. As a result, and to our detriment, first century Christianity of the Biblical record remains a mystery. " ... we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom, which God ordained [Greek, proorizōpredetermined] before the ages [or beginning of time] to our glory." [1 Cor. 2:7]. Let's draw back the curtain, and see what this mystery that pertains to us is all about.

Where Do We Go To See The Elephant?, The Hijacked Elephant

For the past several hundred years in particular, we have observed counterfeit days that have led us away from our heritage and birthright. These days, two most popularly, have grown in strength that to question their validity today would appear to make one look rather foolish. You know, sort of like saying about four hundred years ago, the Earth orbits the Sun foolish. But these counterfeit days contain one vital flaw within them. They have no duality. The days set aside by God for the House of Israel to whom Christ said he was sent, do have this one important feature. It’s just like telling counterfeit money from the real thing. There are markers. And the Biblical physical/spiritual duality is one of them.

Updated: His Treasured Possession

We’ve mentioned in many of our articles and books that Christ was sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel as he clearly said to the gentile woman in the coastal areas of Tyre and Sidon. [Mat. 15:24]. There was a massive theological assault on the canon of the early church, so that by the fifth century, the Roman church et al had unilaterally chosen to redefine our Biblical identity, i.e., changing the truth into a lie. The creation of a theological "reality" that isn't true began that long ago. [See the Feature article, Moving Forward]. And while we as a people remain a treasured possession to our Lord and Savior, the love of the truth of the word of God and our relationship to God has long since been replaced by myths, lies and 5th century Churchianity. This is why Christ posed the question, " ... when the son of man returns, will he find faith [Greek, pistis, conviction of the truth] on Earth?" We need to wake up to the fact that the roots of our current day dilemma are theological, not secular. When we come to understand this truth, we can remedy our situation. Otherwise, we will continue to deal with its worsening effects.
