THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT
Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away (from it).
For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
But the path of the just is as a Shining Light, that shineth more and more unto a perfect day...(Proverbs 4:14-18).
THE FIRST RESURRECTION...Revelation 20:6.
"One of the Hymns states that God's light will eventually shine Sevenfold strong. The basic idea has, of course, good Old Testament authority (Isaiah 30:25,26; Isa.60:19), but it is interesting to observe that, even according to the Talmud (Sanh.91b), the light of the Messianic sun will be Seven times as powerful as usual." The Dead Sea Scriptures, by Theodor H. Gaster, p.23.
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us.
For the earnest expectation of the creature (the whole human order) waiteth for the manifestation of the sons and daughters of God.
For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of Him who subjected the same in hope,
Because the creature (every human soul) itself shall also be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
For we know that the whole world groaneth and travaileth together in pain until now.
And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our Body...(Romans 8:18-23).
Let no man deceive you with vain words; for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Be ye not therefore partakers with them.
For ye were sometimes Darkness, but now are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light...
(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth);
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
AND HAVE NO FELLOWSHIP WITH THE UNFRUITFUL WORKS OF DARKNESS, but rather reprove them...(Ephesians 5:6-11).
Hereby we know if we know him, if we keep his commandments...
He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also to walk, even as he walked...
Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which is true in Him and in you: because the Darkness is past, and the True Light now shineth.
He that saith he is in the Light, and hateth his brother (as Cain hated Abel), is in Darkness, even until now.
He that loveth his brother abideth in the Light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him...(1 John 2:3-10).
The Night is far spent, the Day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of Darkness, and let us put on the Armour of Light.
Let us walk honestly, as in the Day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof...(Romans 13:12-14).
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons and daughters of God without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, AMONG WHOM YE SHINE AS LIGHTS IN THE WORLD:
Holding forth the word of Life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither labored in vain...(Philippians 2:15,16).
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad for great is your reward in heaven, for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot.
Ye are the Light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid (see Hebrews 12:22,23).
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel (a commercial measure), but on a candlestick; and it giveth Light unto all that are in the house.
Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven...(Matthew 5:1-16).
And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for His sake;
Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me...(Philippians 1:28-30).
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of Darkness into His marvellous Light...(1 Peter 2:6-9).
"The members of the Community will be in all justice the witnesses of God's truth and the elect of His favor, effecting atonement for the earth and ensuring the requital of the wicked. They will be, indeed, a 'tested bulwark' and 'a precious cornerstone' (Isa.28:16). As for the priesthood, they shall be a seat for the Holy of holies, inasmuch as all of them will then have knowledge of the Covenant of Justice and all of them will be qualified to offer what will be indeed, 'a pleasant savor to the Lord. As for the laity, they will constitute a household of integrity and truth, qualified to maintain the Covenant as an everlasting pact. They shall prove acceptable to God, so that he will shrive the earth of its guilt, bring final judgment upon wickedness, and perversity shall be no more." The Dead Sea Scriptures, p.61.
THE FELLOWSHIP OF CHRIST'S SUFFERINGS
That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the Fellowship of His Sufferings, being made conformable to His death...(Philippians 3:10).
Remember that Jesus Christ (the Vedic-Druidical Mystery of Hesus-Crishna) of the seed of David , was raised from the dead according to My gospel.
Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.
Therefore I endure all things for elect's sake (at the end of days), that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us.
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself...(2 Timothy 2:8-13).
FOR I AM NOW READY TO BE OFFERED, and the time of my departure is at hand.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.
Henceforth is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing...(2 Timothy 4:6-8).
For even here unto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving an example, that ye should follow his steps...(1 Peter 2:21).
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
But rejoice inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy...(1 Peter 4:12,13).
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
If you were of this world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his Lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also...(John 15:19-27).
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
They shll put you out of the synagogues (the churches and temples): yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me...(John 16:1-3).
Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted the prophets which were before you...(Matthew 5:11,12).
Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
REJOICE YE IN THAT DAY, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets...(Luke 6:22,23).
THE FEET OF THEM
In That Day, Seven Shepherds and Eight Principle Men...(Micah 5:3-5).
Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know herefter...(John 13:7,8).
AND MAKE STRAIGHT PATHS FOR YOUR FEET, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way.
Follow peace with All men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.
Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of biterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled...(Hebrews 12:13-15).
Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the Power of His Might.
Put on the whole armour of God. that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood (as the sons of Darkness do), but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the Darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high (political, military, economic, and religious) places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye might be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with Truth, and having on the breastplate of Righteousness;
AND YOUR FEET SHOD WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE;
Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God...(Ephesians 6:10-17).
For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.
How then shall they (the Jews) call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they (the Christians and all others) believe in him (DVD) of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach, except they be Sent? (understand Ezekiel, chapter 2), as it is written, HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THEM THAT PREACH THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, and bring glad tidings of good things...(Romans 10:13-15; Isaiah 52:7,8; Nahum 1:15).
But to which of the (other) angels said he at any time, Sit on My Right Hand, until I make thine enemies thy Footstool...(Hebrews 1:14).
