Summary: Thou shalt not lie.
THOU SHALT NOT LIE
Dr. Gale A. Ragan-Reid (March 14, 2018)
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44, King James Version [Christ answereth the Jews])…
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10, King James Version [Christ is the door]).
Greetings in the Holy Name of Jesus,
My sisters and brothers, this is a day of I AM my Father for so many of God’s children---even all of God’s children---the one body. “Then Jesus said, unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: The Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.” [John 8:28, King James Version, Christ answereth his doctrine]. For the strategy for teaching the children of creation, God was lonely and made himself a man.
Man was lonely and God made woman out of the rib of man. Folks so much happened because of loneliness. What torment entered you into because of loneliness that caused you immeasurable sufferings? When I thought about the moment Moses went down to the people from Mount Sinai, the spirit spoke to me, for I thought also of the moment Jesus hung on the cross for redemption sake, for I thought of the moment Jesus spoke firstly to his disciples, the people and then to Pilate, of the kingdom of heaven at hand just like a man living in a wide household, a house of society such as the House of Israel with a scornful hearted brawling woman such as a woman of contentions---it is better for the man to leave, do you not agree?[Proverbs 21:9, KJV, Moral virtues and contrary vices] How could the sin of the earth be so bad that the Prince of Peace could not stay except that it was the day of redemption?
When was the last time you had a “the kingdom of heaven is at hand moment”---it was then that the spirit spoke to me “day”, for it is truly the day Moses went down to the people from Mount Sinai, the day of redemption, and yes, the day the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Jesus knew the time was nigh---he could not stay on earth, for the time was nigh---he had to leave---the kingdom of heaven was at hand just as the day of redemption was at hand and the day of Pilate’s authority to rule over Jesus was at hand. My brothers and sisters, you know where you are, in the space of time Before Christ
[B.C.] , after the death of Christ [A.D.] or when a situation rules---lords over you---that it is that day---as Elijah hid at the back side of the mountain [Horeb] from Jezebel [I Kings 19:8, Elijah comforted by an angel], likewise, you must know Jesus stands between you and God to bear the burden of the government---the Prince of Peace to defend you in the courts of law, for he is the Great Intercessor, the Great Defender of the Faith, the counselor, and Wonderful, for it is times like that day---the day you find yourself in the midst of a situation that you must draw near to God---as the lepers living on the outskirts of town because of their illness. Jesus saves.
Most importantly, we find Moses in a day of reckoning when he went down to the people from Mount Sinai---the day God spoke to the children of Israel from heaven, for he put fear in them so that they would not sin. Howbeit the children of God stood afar off, as Moses told them to stay back from Mount Sinai [Exodus 19:21-23, KJV, so the children feared they would die and asked Moses to speak to them for they were in fear of the thundering and lightning, noise of the trumpet, and the smoke coming out of the mountain yet Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was [Exodus 20:18-26, KJV]? The day of reckoning became a day of consecration, in order for Moses to bestow upon them a blessing this day [32:29, KJV] for when Moses asked, “Who is on the Lord’s side? All of his tribe---the tribe of Levi came forth---stood by him and put forth their sword on their side to go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp and three thousand men fell dead that day---the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses [32:28] [Exodus 32: 26-33, KJV, the idolaters slain], for,” Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.” The Word of God, [Exodus 32:33, KJV] The sin, you see, against God, could not take away from the works of God with Moses, for God spoke to Moses and called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah? And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, to devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and brass [Exodus 31: 1-11, KJV] to build the temple of God and the cloths of service, for the scepter shall remain in Judah but Aaron the priest sinned [he who made the golden calf], however, Aaron was the brother of Moses, of the Levite tribe---and the battle of whether Judah or Levi would hold the high priesthood began, however, God gave the high priesthood to Jesus of the tribe of Judah of the House of David, according to the order of Mechiseldec.
