We thank YOU Father that YOU have included us in the work with YOUR Son, Who has shared YOUR HEART of Love to us, that we, who were lost in darkness and death, might also go and make known to men YOUR Heart OF LOVE through YOUR Word of Life, Whom YOU have sent. We pray that we will continue to open our hearts to YOUR Word that we might honor and glorify YOUR NAME through YOUR Son. Amen.

The Everlasting Gospel is said to be
The Light of The Glorious Gospel of Christ.

What is this Everlasting Gospel? Some would conclude from the study of The Scriptures that The Gospel of Christ is simply the preaching of The Life of Christ, from the promise of His birth into this world; the ministry of His grace and mercy to those, who are lost in darkness and death, and His cruel death on the cross by those, whom He came to save. Some would say that The Gospel is mainly the message of Christ death on the cross, which was meant for every man, who like Barabbas was lost in darkness and death, because of our separation and sin from GOD. But because of His death, burial and resurrection to Life again, men who were once separated from The Father in darkness and death, can now live again with GOD by receiving, believing and following Christ, Who came to restore us to what we had lost. The question we should ask is this, "Are we receiving through the gospel That, Which was lost to us?"

If we focus our study only on what Christ did for man on the cross of Calvary, and not on The Revelation He came to reveal, then we are receiving and presenting only part of the gospel of Christ. For The Life of Christ and His Message from above must be received in us and presented through us to those, who will receive and belived on Him. It is through those, who have died to self by living for Christ that He has made Himself known to all, who would receive and believe on Him. His gospel is more than this. It is The Testimony That The Father has made known to men through their receiving and believing in The Gift of HIS Son, Whom HE has sent, "That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God" (Ephesians 3:16-19).

Notice the focus for which The Father has sent HIS Son into this world, that we might be filled with all the fullness of GOD. The focus of the Gospel to man is that we might receive in our hearts The Fullness of GOD. However, John, who received The Gift of GOD, said, "He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure [unto him]. The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him" (John 3:31-36).

The Message Christ came to reveal to men is The Gospel of GOD, Which many have yet to receive. For That, which He has revealed of GOD, men must believe in order to be saved. It was revealed to us through John that "in Him was Life, and Life was The Light of men. And The Light shines in darkness, and the darkness comprehended It not". He is The Messenger, Who passes to us The Testimony of GOD, Which if men would receive and believe, they would have Everlasting Life. But if men believe not, then the wrath of GOD abides on them. This is what Christ came to save us from, that we like in the days of Noah might be sealed through the receiving of GOD'S Word of Truth. As The Word of GOD and The Messenger of GOD to men, Jesus testified and said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

"The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us [his] flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard [this], said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?

"When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you? [What] and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.(John 6:47-65).

The Everlasting Gospel of Christ is The Testimony Christ came to make known to men, which many have yet to receive, because they do not understand, or comprehend What has been revealed of GOD by HIS Word. If men do not receive in them His Gospel, then in His Own words, Jesus said, "ye have no life in you." Jesus said, "Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

"And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous [men] have desired to see [those things] which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and to hear [those things] which ye hear, and have not heard [them]" (Matthew 13:9-17).

The Testimony of Christ is The Bread of Life, Which The Father has given to us through HIS Son, that HE might work by HIS Word, to make known The Truth of HIS Word to those, who will believe and received Him, Whom He has sent. More to the point, The Bread of Life is The Witness given of GOD to those, who would receive and believe HIS Son, Who is The Witness of GOD. It is not what men might say to men about men, but Who it is that speaks to men through those, who believe on Him. For it is through the writings of Paul to the Hebrews, that it was made known to the church that, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds" (Hebrews 1:1,2).

It is revealed by The Word that GOD spoke to the fathers by the prophets, but the prophets, who spoke to the fathers on HIS behalf saw not The Things that the disciples saw, neither did they hear What the disciples heard. However, they have testified that GOD had spoken unto them, or that The Word of The LORD came unto them saying What was said to them of HIM. Jesus confirmed this Truth and testified of Himself and said to His disciples, "Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you" (John 15:14-16).

As The Son, or The Seed of GOD, Jesus was not left in the dark of knowing the Will of The Father, for He testified and said, "...Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel. For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth [them]; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will. For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

"I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than [that] of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape" (John 5:19-37).

The Bread of Life is Christ, Who is given of GOD to man that we might have Everlasting life. As members of His body, we can of ourselves do nothing without Him, for He is our Light and Life to do The Father's Will. The Father works by HIS Word in all things, and though Him, HE works through the church to do the things that bears Witness of HIS Will. Through the church, The Word, Who is The Power and Spirit of GOD is given to men to proclaim The Gospel of GOD, WHO works HIS Will by HIS Word, Whom HE has sent. But if men receive not The Power and Spirit of GOD, then we have no Life of GOD abiding in us to do HIS Will. To understand and proclaim The Everlasting Gospel, one must understand The Great Commission, which is given of GOD to the church through The Only One, Who has received Power over heaven and earth, to teach The Things, Which are derived from GOD, which men and angels are to observe and do in obedience to HIS Will. But the world has been blinded to The Truth of GOD, because many are spiritually blinded and deaf to see and hear The Things GOD has revealed to us through HIS Word.

Although many in the church say they believe in GOD through the receiving of the written Word, many within the church today dishonor The Son by not believing the teaching He has revealed of GOD. He, Who is The True Witness of GOD to all, has revealed Himself as The Truth to those, who would receive and believe on The Father, WHO sent Him. Yet in speaking to Nicodemos of the things He has seen and heard of The Father, Jesus said, "...Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you [of] heavenly things?" (John 3:10-12)

Jesus was sent to men to reveal in Himself The Father, WHO sent Him, that those, who received Him would receive The Fullness of GOD, to see and hear The Will of The Father through The Gift of receiving HIS Son. But, many in the church and in the world through mans wisdom are bearing witness to something that The Father has not revealed by HIS Word. The question that we should reflect on, and answer for ourselves is this, Have we really received and discerned The Truth of GOD'S Revelation to men?

The Gospel according to John is the testimony of Him, Who is from above. It is what He has seen and heard from HIM, WHO Sent Him. Paul said it this way, saying, "So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith" (Romans 1:15-17).

The True Gospel of GOD is The Power of GOD unto salvation. It is The Righteousness derived from GOD, Which is revealed and received by faith to them that believe. It is why Christ sacrificed Himself to make sure that all might receive Him, as The Gift given of GOD. The disciples presented themselves, as living sacrifices to Christ, that He might go into the world through them to make known to men That, Which was given to them from HIM, WHO sent Him. We today, as followers of Christ are to be Lights in this world against the darkness of lies, which are given to keep men from knowing The Truth of The Eternal Power and Godhead of GOD, Who made man for this very purpose. That, which is of the flesh of man is of the flesh and amounts to nothing, but That, Which is of The Spirit of GOD is of The SPIRIT, WHO sent Him that we might be born of GOD through Him. For Jesus said in His prayer to The Father, saying, "...Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

"I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them" (John 17:1-10).

In the Opening of this series of GOD'S Revelation to man, we have received through the study of HIS Word that no one but One had prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seals of The Book in The Hand of HIM, WHO sat upon the throne. An angel from heaven could not unseal This Revelation of GOD; neither could man upon the earth, or those, who were labeled as being under the earth. Only One, Who was given as a Witness to The Thoughts and Way of GOD could open to men The Things, sealed in The Book in The Hand of GOD.

John said it this way, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed [is] he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time [is] at hand" (Revelation 1:1-3).

Jesus is The Only Messenger of GOD to man, and He is the only One Who can open to men The Things The Father has revealed through Him to men. John said it this way, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.(John 1:1-5, 10-14).

It was GOD The Father, WHO has given to men The Gift of HIS Son, that He might reveal to men The Father, WHO sent Him, but those, who were called to be His own received Him not. And if they received Him not, then they have failed to received His Testimony. But those, who receive Him from The Father, WHO sent Him, they have receive from HIM The Power to become the sons of God. Jesus has confirmed this Truth when He said, "I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received [them], and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them" (John 17:6-10).

Jesus confirmed that He has glorified The Father's NAME on the earth by doing what HE was sent here to do. Then He said that He is glorified in those, who have received Him and have kept Him, as The Word sent from GOD. One, who has received Him as The Power of GOD, wrote to the church of her day to reveal What was revealed to her.

The Gift of GOD revealed to men

We are blessed if we are able to receive and keep The Word, Who is sown of as The Gift of GOD in our hearts, to keep The Things, He has revealed to us therein that we might bear fruit and accomplish that which will please The Father, WHO sent Him. But the soil of our hearts was diverse in the way we choose to receive The Word sown in our hearts. As John said, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 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" (1 John 4:1-4).

There are many, who remain out of The Body of Christ, because they have not yet comprehended and believed The Truth of GOD through The Gospel. And because of this lack of Understanding, they reject Him, Who comes through those, who are sent in His Name. Jesus said to His disciples, who at the time wanted to know who among them was the greatest. He said to them, "...Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great" (Luke 9:48).

To His disciples, who felt rejected by the Samaritans, and wanted to know if it was His desire to call down fire on them, because they did not receive Him, He turned and said unto them, "...Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save [them]...(Luke 9:55,56) As members of His Body in His Kingdom, we are to feed those, who are hungry with The Bread of Life, Which was given to us by HIM, WHO sent Him. We are to take of The Water of Life and give to those, Who are thirsting that He might cover those, who are naked with The Gift of His Righteousness.

For John testified of Him to us and said, "...the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely" (Revelation 22:17). For it is written, "...we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned" (1 Corinthians 2:12-14).

May you be blessed to have eyes to see and ears to hear What The Father has revealed to us through HIS Word, that you might understand in you heart and be converted and healed by Him. For He said, "...verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous [men] have desired to see [those things] which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and to hear [those things] which ye hear, and have not heard [them]" (Matthew 13:17).

May it be the desire of your heart to share with your brothers and sister That, Which HE has shared with you through HIS Word. Amen
