Going Home!

                    Going Home


We pray asking our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ bless this work for His Glory Forever!  Amen!

We are truly in the last hours of this age. If you really want to hear the Lord, repent. Seek Him.
You will never find the truth in anyone else's books, Dvds, Prophecy conferences, Pulpits, and so on.
The best way to know the Creator of the Universe, our Earth, Who breathed life into Adam in Genesis is to read. Read the Word of God in the King James Version only.
All other newer versions are corrupt.  Please see this link for a further study.


Please if you’re reading this and you are sitting comfortably in a church pew, do not be deceived into thinking you’re saved and will have a position in God’s Kingdom during the Millenium.    Of course the most important is your eternal soul. Please see this video on true salvation. LINK
Next, if you are saved, will your works be burned at the BEMA Judgement?
Will you be a ruler with Jesus Christ or an inhabitant with no position and authority.  Doesn’t matter to you? Stop now and repent. If it does matter, then get out of your brick and mortar pagan church building and start a true personal relationship with Jesus Christ now.
Here is a Link on why the Brick and Mortar Churches are not Scriptural.

Revelation King James Version Bible Chapters 2 and 3 read as follows:
Revelation
King James Version (KJV)
Revelation
Chapter 2
1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
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.
14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Revelation
Chapter 3
1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
I  . These are 7 churches called out by Jesus Christ himself. These are not brick and mortar buildings with impressive architecture shown on the internet.
Here a Catholic Website tries to show the unsuspecting viewer each of the 7 churches were massive edifices along with hundreds of other archived photos  associated pictures of ruins. FALSE PHOTOS OF CHURCH RUINS LINK  This is not true.
Here are the actual facts that prove these areas, cities actually did exist and we know that these churches were real physical locations of where these Christians assembled themselves as a gathering. LINK . And another LINK .  We also understand there is a major Spiritual Significance to these churches that teach us today valuable lessons, primarily that most of the people assembled in their buildings are in a complete state of “apostasy”.  Here is a good overview of each type of church in apostasy today: LINK
The point we make here is these were not “centralized” building structures where people assembled that Jesus addressed. In other words Jesus was not addressing organized religion structured in a building, but rather flesh and blood, physical human beings represented as the Body of Christ in assembly physically residing in the 7 locations referred to as “churches”.  Specifically “In Ephesus”, “In Smyrna," In Pergamos”, “In Thyatira”, “In Sardis”, “In Philadelphia”, and In Laodicea but but written as: “Of the Laodiceans***.”
The true definition of a church being not a building organization but rather a group of people assembled as the body of Christ. Is clearly written in the scriptures as follows:
Relevant Verses
1 Corinthians 12:12-13 King James Version (KJV)
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
Romans 12:4-5 King James Version (KJV)
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Colossians 1:24
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I do my share on behalf of His body, which is the church, in filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions.
John Chapter 2:19-22
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
Ephesians 5:23
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.”
Ephesians Chapter 2:19-22
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Ephesians Chapter 5:29-30
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
II.  The Body of Christ is both called and chosen by God himself.

Calling Someone for a purpose of belonging to God, as in calling out as unique to belong to God:
Matthew 22:14
“For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Chosen
The meaning of Chosen.
There are two distinct types of being chosen in scripture. Yes, Chosen does not mean to be chosen in all cases. There are severe and supreme exceptions.
1. Those who are chosen to be given a distinct chance of belonging to God but even in their unique position of existing among the truly chosen in a special place or circumstance, this individual chooses evil and separation from God.

2. Those who are called and answer the call but remain in a state of spiritual infancy plagued with backsliding and struggles of the flesh. Those whose works are burned at the BEMA.
*What is the BEMA see complete study here:
3. Those who are called and answer the call to remain a true child of God and during their walk on earth run the good race to receive their crowns at the BEMA SEAT of Jesus Christ . Please see BEMA Study Link above.

Samuel  1 Samuel 3:8 called ; 1 Samuel 3:20 Chosen
Saul - Paul  See Acts Chapter 9.  see scriptures in Acts

The 4 (4 represents creation)  examples in Scripture that fit the description in example 1 above (called, chosen but not a completely fulfilled reciprocal response)  are: 1. Lucifer to Satan; 2. Judas Iscariot; 3. the 6 churches mentioned in Revelation chapter 2 and 3. And 4 National Unrepentant Israel. See notes below of    If the church is the Body of Christ, why are there so many problems identified among the body?Lucifer was chosen by God To be a Cherub above the other angels known as the anointed - set apart of God’s divine favor for a special function.  God had given Lucifer a tremendous amount of authority, but he became Satan and perverted that power, wanting to exalt himself above God. He was not created evil but created evil through his own heart caused from pride and seeking to actually replace God. How absurd this seems, but we are told in scriptures that he attempted to exalt himself above God, but was thrown out of heaven taking a third of the angels with him.  Scriptures that refer are: Ezekiel 28; Isaiah 14:12; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 12:4-9
Judas Iscariot was both called and chosen to be one of 12 disciples, and like Satan, Judas chose to defy his calling and chose his own end.  The word chosen in John 6:70 referring to Judas is interesting not the same grammar sentence structure and context as Ephesians 1:4
Did I not choose - I, even I the Holy One of God - you the twelve to myself (ἐξελεξάμην), and of you one is a devil? This "choice" is repeatedly referred to (John 13:18; John 15:16; cf. Luke 6:13; Acts 1:2, 24).
John 6:70
Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: (note: the words, “us in him” are of supreme importance as this means the highest form of choosing, meaning truly saved and accepted fully as allowing God to reign supreme in our lives)
The description of scriptures in example 2 above of those both called and chosen are those who were truly chosen to be “In God through Jesus Christ” but who fail in the flesh are listed here as NOT INHERITING THE KINGDOM.

King James Version (KJV)
Narrow is the Path
Matthew 7:13-14 King James Version (KJV)
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

John 6:70 - 6:71
Now viewing scripture range from the book of John chapter 6:70 through chapter 6:71...
John Chapter 6
70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
71 He spake of Judas Iscariot [the son] of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
A significant key to understand what is going on here in Revelation 2 and 3 is Matthew chapter 12.
GOD AND ISRAEL; Choose - Rejection - Acceptance
God chose his people Israel but was rejected.  God will come back to them and they will mourn, Zechariah 12:10,  when they know their true Messiah Jesus Christ.
Deuteronomy 7:6-8                               
"For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. "The LORD did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any of the peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples, but because the LORD loved you and kept the oath which He swore to your forefathers, the LORD brought you out by a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
When national Israel rejected their Messiah, Jesus withdrew the Kingdom of Heaven and put the entire Kingdom on hold, in abeyance until the Millennial period.   The tragedy of this event was described in Matthew Chapter 12: When Matthew Chapter 13 begins with the Kingdom Parables we see a clear indication that Jesus is telling the Jews directly and informing us Christians indirectly that this fallen world would over time eventually completely saturate the existence of God’s Kingdom on earth Christians and Christian assembly until it is “almost” completely corrupted whereby only a few would be remaining truly faithful to the faith. This last state of apostasy there would only exist a few faithful known as those who in Ephesians 1:4 would be those few chosen from chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,
Romans 11:1-2 King James Version (KJV)
11 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying...


Please read THE CALL OF ABRAHAM

The Call of Abraham

Genesis 12: 1–10

The call of Abram, the father of the faithful, is evidently of special importance in this respect, that it is the first public separation of one called out of this world. This gives a very particular position to the one so called out. The people of God were always morally, and must necessarily be, a people separate from the world. But Abram was the expression of something different. He was not merely to be a godly man in his family, but a godly man called out of his family. It was God exercising and establishing a title over those He had morally and spiritually called. This broke the ties of nature, claiming them and calling them out into public testimony of separation. This distinguished the call of Abram—the public assertion of the claims of God over His people.
The call of Israel out of Egypt is somewhat analogous, though it was not said to Israel to come out, but to Pharaoh, “Let my people go,” because it was the assertion of the right of power over the prince of this world regarding God’s own people. Therefore it was said to Pharaoh, “Let my people go,” and on his refusing to do this God shows His power in redemption—first by blood, then by leading them out by the Red Sea. Thus, in the case of Israel, it was not the invitation of the power of grace to those who were its subjects, to break the tie. Rather, it was the assertion of the power of God over the enemy, breaking down every claim of the world. In the case of Abram it was not precisely that; it was an address to Abram himself—the claim of God over the person thus called. It was love working, not a claim of power. It was grace made effectual in its working in the heart of Abram.
For a time, however, the tie of nature was not broken. Abram went out with Terah his father. He did not leave his father’s house. He lingered after something. He did not fully surrender himself to the Lord’s will at once, and therefore the Lord could not show him the land of Canaan. Abram had left a great deal, but he stopped short of Canaan. It is true he had left his country and his kindred, but he had not left the nearest tie of nature—his father’s house. Therefore God could not show Canaan to him while he was clinging to Terah and going but halfway with God. Thus he stays in Haran. It is the same with us. If there is still cleaving to us a desire after that which naturally belongs to us, there will not be the full entering into those things that God is ready and waiting to show us. All the communications of God to Abram, as to what Canaan was, took place after, or consequent on, his arrival in Canaan.
God puts the position he is to be in directly in contrast with natural ties. He said to Abram, “Get thee out…unto a land that I will show thee.” He knew that natural ties were mixed up with what Abram had to leave, but he was to leave his country and all, having no other warrant for it but God’s word. God had called him, and the call implied a claim. It was not merely the question of the public government of the world—Abram is entirely separated from that—but he is to be a stranger to his father’s house, and a stranger still when brought into Canaan. It was the Lord’s love resting on an individual and associating him with all that he had in His mind, and putting him into the place of all the promises of blessing.
We see what he was called out from in Joshua 24: 2: “Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.” Men were not merely wicked, but God having manifested in the deluge the power of government in the world, Satan got hold of that power in the minds of men, who were thus led to worship devils, to whom they ascribed the power, and not to God.
It was this that formed the occasion of this public testimony for God in separating Abram from all around him. It separated him totally from every tie that was recognized in the world. He was not merely to be righteous and to be a worshipper. All that is true, but he was to be connected in his own person with a glory the world had lost sight of, for it had put the devil in God’s place. Thus it says in Acts 7: 2, “The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham.” God calls Abram out from the world to a glory set before him. Glory is revealed, and one called out by the knowledge of it. We have thus in principle the public call of God of the heirs of glory out of the world. The world is not set right, but left just as it was, and we find now a special link of connection set up between God and Abram. God reveals Himself to him, and says, come out “unto a land that I will show thee.” The life of Abram depended on a present communication from God, an immediate present connection between himself and God, which was to be kept up by the Lord making good all He has promised.
So the Lord reveals Himself to our souls, and gives His word as a sure ground of our conduct. Blessed be God, we can count upon His infallible faithfulness, and live by faith in daily, constant, unceasing dependence on Him, to lead on to the possession of the desires of our hearts. Nevertheless, we find also that the Lord’s promises involved the acting of Abram likewise, for while he does not leave Terah, God cannot bring him into Canaan. He could not enjoy Terah and Canaan together. God took care of that; if the father’s house is not left, Canaan cannot be shown. The blessing to faith is only found in the path of faith. God’s call gives the warrant for acting, and so far as Abram acts in dependence on God, the promises are made good to him.
In all that is spoken of Canaan, it is not rest that is before us. Look at the book of Joshua—there it is conflict. Does Abram get rest? He had not so much as to set his foot upon, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob. A heavenly position, but with conflict, he gets as soon as he had left Terah and come into the land of Canaan, for the Canaanites are still there. The thing that God calls us to we do not obtain now, and that which marks the completion of Christ’s work is that He sat down. We sit down in heavenly places in Christ, but do we get rest? No! We have to fight with wicked spirits in heavenly places. The saint is called into a place of rest, but as yet obtains nothing. Thus we see that the worship of devils was not set aside, but that Abram was called out and brought into the promised land, but not to rest, because the Canaanites were there.
“And the Lord appeared unto Abram” (v. 7). He now appears to himin the land. It is not the call which sets us in the place of worship, but as soon as we enter the land, then we can worship, because our relationship with God is known and settled and enjoyed. Before it is the walk of faith, but that is not worship. So we, as seated in the heavenly places, can worship, knowing our relationship as sons. “And there he builded an altar unto the Lord, and called upon the name of the Lord.”
In Hebrews 11: 8–10 we get three things as regards the power of faith in Abram:
First, “by faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went” (v. 8). He went in simple, present dependence, leaning on the promise of God. There was the life of faith.
Secondly, when in the land, “by faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise” (v. 9). The Lord’s appearing to him was the foundation of his worship. The Lord was known in the land, and there Abram built his altar. The Lord further explains His purposes and intentions to him, and how they were to be accomplished. Thus he got prophetic knowledge. However, it was not this which sustained Abram’s soul. He could say, ‘I know now how it is all to be accomplished. It is in my seed,and not in myself. I am a stranger here.’
Thirdly, how then was his soul sustained while he was a stranger? “He looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (v. 10). Thus Abram’s soul was not merely brought to worship, but he was sustained by a closer communion with that God who had chosen him, in faith that He would build the city Himself.
I have been struck by the fact that in Revelation 4, where it speaks of the throne of God’s government, there are peoples and angels and assemblies and living creatures—a whole population there—but when I come to the heavenly city (Rev. 21), there is a high wall and streets and gates of pearl, but where are the people? No one there, because the people are lost in the idea of the glory of God and the Lamb, and nothing else is thought of (though we know it is the Lamb’s bride), for God and the Lamb are there. It was looking for this city that made Abram a pilgrim and a stranger. The world could not understand him, and might have said, “Now Abram is in the land, what has he got?” Nothing, for he could not explain to themhow it was, but he had seen by faith that city of which God was the builder. We see then Abram is called, and having by faith entered into the conditions of the calling, he gets into the land, and when there he has a present revelation of the Lord, which is the ground of his worship, but it is not rest, because the Canaanite is there.
If God has called me out, I must leave the world just as it is, and not think of setting that right. God has called me out of the world into connection with Himself, and I cannot connect any natural tie with such an association. You cannot hold relationship with Christ and the world at the same time. The worship of God is founded on the knowledge of the heavenly position we are in, being called out of the world into fellowship with Himself. We have not a single thing in common with the world. We can sit and sing of redemption, just as if we were now in heaven. My relationships with God will not be in the least changed when I get home. They will be just the same then as they are now, and there is no ground upon which we shall be there that we are not upon now. He has set us in Christ, and we can say, as in Deuteronomy 26: 3, “I profess this day unto the Lord thy God that I am come unto the country”—not shall come. We are there, and have the understanding of how God will accomplish His promises, “in thy seed.” It is not the earthly rest in the fulfilment of promise to man, but heavenly rest where He dwells, where the glory of God doth lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof—that is where He has brought us.
God says to Abram, “I will show thee” and “I will bless thee.” Thus it is now a particular relationship on a new ground with persons He has called, which has its existence in separation from the world. It is well for our souls to have the relationship into which we are called distinctly before our minds, that we may know how to worship and be sustained by the strength which it supplies. And if the foundations of the earth are out of course, I am not of it. Having the sentence of death in myself, I shall not fear death, but we shall have the comfort and joy of the place we belong to. The sweetness of a calm is better known when the storm is raging without. May the Lord give us the true revelation of Himself.
