Go and teach, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh,
nor of the will of man, but of The Holy One, Whom
GOD has sent, as The Gift and POWER of God.

The Commission to go and teach all nations is given to the bride of Christ, or to the partakers of Christ, who received The Gift and Power of GOD, to share Him as The Bread of heaven to a lost and dying world. As the church, we are to bear witness of The Light and Life of Christ, Who shines The LIGHT and LIFE of The Father's Glory through us to the world, that all, who believe in Him might give glory to Him, Whom The Father has sent. As a member of this body of believers, John testified and said, "There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all [men] through him might believe. He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light. [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not" (John 1:6-10).

After becoming a member of this body of believers, Paul testified and said, "...I kept back nothing that was profitable [unto you], but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house, Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

"And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I [am] pure from the blood of all [men]. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified" (Acts 20:20-32).

The Great Commission is given to the church, which is the body of Christ, or The Temple of His dwelling, which is made, not of wood, bricks or hey, but of living stones, who are born of GOD by The Power of HIS Word, Who also is The Chief Corner Stone, and through Whom The Father has made all things for His Glory. Through Paul, The Father made it clear by HIS Word that those, who are called to oversee and manage the church are to rely on both The Father and The Word of HIS Grace, Who is able, by HIS Power to build us up to receive an inheritance among all, who are sanctified. If The Father is building us up by HIS Word to receive an inheritance among all, who are sanctified, or set apart for His Glory, then the material that should be used for this building must be of The Father by The Word of HIS Grace. In other words, the means by which the church receives HIS inheritance among all, who are sanctified, is by and of The SPIRIT and not of men.

And because The Father made and will recreate all things by HIS Word, Whom HE has sent, Jesus testified and said, "...All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen" (Matthew 28:18-20).

The disciples were never instructed by GOD through HIS Word, to go in their own name, relying on their own power to teach whatever they thought might work in building the tabernacle for The Lord. As builders and co-workers of the tabernacle of The LORD, the disciples were called to immerse men and women into the continuous flow of The Grace and Power of GOD by the receiving of HIS Holy Word from above. And being filled with HIS overflowing Power and Grace in the receiving of HIS Holy Word, the childern born of GOD are to go by The Same Power of GOD, Who abides with us, to teach of HIM WHO has taught us by HIS Word.

As children of GOD, we are to observe all That The Father has commanded us to observe by HIS Word. And to confirm this saying, Jesus Testified through His servant Matthew and said, "All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him]. Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:27-30).

Through His servant Paul, The Father by HIS Word had counseled the leaders of the church to depart not from The Faith in the teachings given to the church, which HE has purchased by The Blood of HIS Word, and by Whom they were to feed and build the Temple of His Body. But some of these leaders, like wolves in sheep's clothing began to present perverse things of their own selves to build temples for their own glory. As a result of these perverse teachings, many for whom Christ died, are finding themselves today in dwellings, which teach things that are not supported, or sanctified by The Word of GOD. However, as The Father rose up Christ from the dead, to live again with HIM forever more, likewise, HE is calling all, who believe in The Testimony of HIS Word, to place their faith and trust in HIM by HIS Word, Whom HE has sent.

It is through the body of believers, or the bride of Christ, that The Word of GOD has revealed The Holy Things by Which The True Church of GOD is built. Through those, who are sanctified, He says, "Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors. Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man. O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.

"Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.

"The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

"Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death" (Proverbs 8:1-36).

It is in receiving The Spirit, Who is filled to overflowing as a stream of The SPIRIT, WHO by HIS Word and of HIS Word, reveals The Things of GOD to those, who will receive The Gift of HIS Word. For Paul said, "...we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. [We are] troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

"For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you. We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present [us] with you. For all things [are] for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal" (2 Corinthians 4:5-18).

Notice the purpose for which GOD commanded The Light of the knowledge of the glory of God, Which is revealed through Jesus Christ, to shine out through His doors and gates into this world. The Treasure of GOD shines through the church by The Power of GOD, that the church, though troubled, perplexed and persecuted, might not be distressed in despair, or forsaken and destroyed. But by The Power of GOD in us, we will bear not only the dying of The Lord Jesus, but The life also of Jesus, Who is revealed in and through us to the world, that by HIS Grace, many might redound to the glory of God.

If men and women in the body of Christ present not The Same Gift of GOD, Who is revealed to them by faith, then they are rejecting what GOD has already revealed as evidence in their own bodies of The Power by Whom The Father gives Light and Life to every man and woman, who come into the world. For "...that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse" (Romans 1:19,20).

What we present to others must be of The HOLY Spirit, WHO revealed HIMSELF to us through The Gift of HIS Son Jesus Christ our Lord and HIS Word in Whom HE is will pleased to do HIS Will in and through us. May we of The Spirit, Who teaches The Invisible things of HIM, WHO sent Him, that out of our darken hearts might shine The Light of The Knowledge of The Glory of GOD to all, who would believe in Him.
