NOTICE

This section had to be added to precede the beginning of the Study Guide to address the intrusive ads that have been appearing in our Christology Series Study Guides. Please read!

Active links will open automatically in a new tab. To return to this page just close the tab.

APOLOGY & DISCLAIMER REGARDING THE NEW ADS:

When we began our Study Guides this free internet host service was free of ads. However, they have begun adding frequent ads over which we have no control. The ad content and the page placement of the ads are in the articles themselves and are intrusive to our content and an interruption for the student and reader.

Based on some borderline offensive content we have decided an alternative option of a private server which will enhance the reading and learning experiences for our students and readers without exposure to unwanted advertising.

We have observed some ads and think it will be just a matter of time before the ad content will become so offensive it will prove unsettling to those who are seeking and expecting Spiritual and Exalting Edification Content. We don’t believe our subscribers should have to be exposed to these ads and their content.

PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF YHVH GOD TO FIGHT SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD – Ephesians 6:10 to 6:20

Please Pray to the FATHER & SON through the HOLY GHOST/HOLY SPIRIT, Comforter and Spirit of Truth for Spiritual Protection of your Heart and Mind before you begin reading the Study Guides and articles. If profane or offensive ads appear, prayerfully dismiss them as Spiritual Warfare which is real for those who Seek the Kingdom of GOD & Heaven.

Be aware and be prepared with the elements of the >> Spiritual Armor of GOD << for Spiritual Power because we wrestle and battle not against flesh & blood but against malefic spiritual beings who control them and their actions. See a larger image of the elements and Scriptures of the Spiritual Armor at the link above. We discuss this topic further in this Study Guide and throughout the other Study Guides with special focus in the Angelology Study Guide of benign celestial beings and the malefic beings.

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

WE MUST PRAY FOR STRENGTH

Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

If you view something profane and disturbing before we have moved our Study Guides there are Prayers of >> Overcoming In Spiritual Warfare << at the preceding link. Recite the Prayer before continuing if you can. Also, there is a link to the >> LORD’S Prayer. << We are attempting to get the move underway as soon as possible but considerations include technical aspects which are new issues for the move. We have Faith the LORD will provide.

Joh 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

1Jn 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

PRAY FOR OUR TRANSITION

Also, please Pray for us while we are undergoing this transition of relocating our Study Guides as the FATHER, Time and Resources will allow. If you would like to receive a Press Release with the new URL address to our New Ad Free Private Server, use the Comments form at the end of this page.

RECONCILIATION AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST

2Co 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

2Co 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

MEETING OUR MISSION GOALS

Moving our forty nine (49) Study Guides with a minimum of ten (10) articles in each one is a daunting task. We need Volunteer Webmasters and Editors to help us move our Study Guides to our New Ad Free Server. If you would like to Volunteer, please see our >> Ambassadors Volunteer Information Page << to Sign up for Assignments and to view the Thank You Perks and Gifts Reward Catalog (under construction) for Volunteers helping us to meet our Mission Goals – Teaching Discipleship and Reconciliation to the HOLY FATHER through HIS HOLY SON & the HOLY GHOST/HOLY SPIRIT – one Person, Groups, Teams and Leagues at a time.

See you on the other side.


WHAT THE HOLY BIBLE IS TO MANKIND & HOW IT CAME TO US

 

The BIBLE, by definition, is a Sacred Volume of Books in which are contained the Revelation of YHVH GOD, the Covenants, the Principles of Faith, and the Rules of Practice and Conduct for Future Kings & Priests in Training who will Reign with JESUS the CHRIST YEHOSHYA HA`MASHIACH for a Thousand Years.

The Bible was not always generally available to Mankind.  It was, at one time, Forbidden to the Common Man upon Pain of Death and was only used by the Catholic Church Priests and Higher Officials. Many Martyrs, who is one who Bears Witness of the Truth and Suffers Death in the Cause of CHRIST, gave up their Lives and others their Freedom to give us the Right to Obtain, Possess and Read our own copy of the BIBLE. Because of these People many Generations of Mankind have had the BIBLE before their eyes to Behold; to Study; to Embrace and to Utilize as they Created Their Destiny. 

We will be discussing this portion of the Bible History in the Study Guide – The History  >> The History of the Bible, << a Christology Series Study Guide that depicts the Historical Facets of the Bible, its Topics and Characters.

 The Excerpt:

The BIBLE consists of two parts called the >> OLD TESTAMENT << and the >> NEW TESTAMENT. <<

The OLD TESTAMENT contains thirty-nine (39) Books and the NEW TESTAMENT has twenty-seven (27) Books.  The Books are divided as follows:

THE OLD TESTAMENT

The Old Testament is divided into three parts:
(1.) The Law (Torah), consisting of the Pentateuch, or five books of Moses.
(2.) The Prophets, consisting of
(a.) the former, namely, Joshua, Judges, the Books of Samuel, and the Books of Kings;
(b.) the latter, namely, the greater prophets, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, and the twelve minor prophets.
(3.)The Hagiographa, or holy writings, including the rest of the books. These were ranked in three divisions:,
(a.) The Psalms, Proverbs, and Job, distinguished by the Hebrew name, a word formed of the initial letters of these books, emeth, meaning truth.
(b.) Canticles, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther, called the five rolls, as being written for the synagogue use on five separate rolls.
(c.) Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, and 1 and 2 Chronicles. Between the Old and the New Testament no addition was made to the Revelation YHVH GOD had already given. The Period of New Testament Revelation, extending over a century, began with the Appearance of >> John the Baptist, << the Last >> Prophet << from the >> Old Testament Era. <<

The New Testament consists of:
(1.) the historical books, viz., the Gospels, and the Acts of the Apostles;
(2.) the Epistles; and
(3.) the book of prophecy, the Revelation.

The entire Bible is a Spiritual and Historical Narrative of Mankind from the Beginning of Time (Book of Genesis) to the Projected Future >> (Book of Revelation) << and the end of the Carnal and Unconverted World.  It is also a Narrative of the Race of Mankind’s Effort to Rule and Govern himself, without success because he chose to Govern himself without his CREATOR, YHVH GOD.

It is a historical account of facts and events, disposed in the order of time.  (See >> THE HISTORY OF THE BIBLE <<) encompassing Life on three Cosmic Levels on various Dimensions as:

The Microcosm

The Macrocosm

The Metacosm

The BIBLE contains the Words of GOD as they were Revealed to Mankind under the Inspiration of the >> HOLY GHOST/HOLY SPIRIT. << It is a Holy Book of Spiritual Education with Directions, Commandments, Judgments; Exhortations, Admonishments, Encouragement, Instructions, Faith and Hope.  As the Sacred Holy Book is written through the inspiration of the HOLY SPIRIT, the possession of the HOLY SPIRIT is freely given to Disciples, Believers; Saints; and Over-Comers by CHRIST JESUS YEHOSHUA HA`MASHIACH when we are Translated into HIS Kingdom by HIS HOLY FATHER YHVH who Art in Heaven.

They are the Called who are Converted by Being – >> BORN AGAIN. << They are given the Power to Become the Sons of YHVH GOD Born of the FATHER NOT of Flesh but after A Spiritual Transformation by Receiving a Renewal of their Minds which is required to fully Comprehend the SPIRITUAL ORACLES of GOD.
