A complete list of everything in this website.

A website for those who wish to digest the "strong [solid] meat,"
not just "the milk or meat," of the Word of God. ~ Hebrews 5:12-14

Or, as Gary Whipple would say, "For those desiring SUPER Knowledge of God’s Word!"

JUST SOME QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS TO PONDER FROM THIS WEBSITE's LAYMAN HOST:

Aren’t ALL spiritually saved by grace going to heaven at the RAPTURE?  If so, why is there a JUDGMENT SEAT awaiting?  What is there to judge?  What are the different outcomes?  Could it be that Christ is looking for those qualified TO rule and reign with Him as His wife and TO replace Satan’s ruling angels when Christ replaces Satan?  Could it be that the saved have TO be more qualified than just “spiritually” TO rule and reign with Christ and TO serve Him?  Does God’s number THREE come to mind, meaning DIVINE PERFECTION (e.g. Father, Son, Holy Spirit)?  If so, would one then reason there MUST be one more step after salvations of the BODY and SPIRIT?

If so, you are CORRECT!  There is a necessary third salvation TO qualify one to rule and reign with Christ.  What would that salvation be?  Salvation of the old man, the SOUL, the sinning part of spiritually saved man!  And what has to happen for salvation of the SOUL?  One has to allow all works emanating from him to be of the HOLY SPIRIT, not of self.  And for that to happen one must continuously, day to day, be FILLED with the HOLY SPIRIT.  That way one’s life is controlled by the Holy Spirit resulting IN the fulfillment of one’s role in God’s plan – TO rule and reign with Christ in His Kingdom.  Pat

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Of His own will He brought us forth by the Word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted Word, which is able to save your SOULS. (James 1:18, 21)

“Redemption” is THE central issue throughout all Scripture, BUT redemption includes FAR more than the salvation that we presently possess.  Redemption begins with unredeemed man who, because of sin, is BOTH alienated from God AND dwelling on an earth that is under a curse; AND redemption terminates with redeemed man dwelling as a joint-heir with his Messiah, ruling over an earth removed from the curse.

In this respect, God’s revealed purpose for man’s redemption is TO ultimately place him in the position for which he was originally created:  “Let them have dominion . . . .”  And WHEN this has been accomplished, restored man will occupy a regal position over a restored earth, removed from the curse (cf. Genesis 1:26, 28; Acts 3:21; Colossians 1:20).

Anything SHORT of this revealed goal is SHORT of God’s purpose for His redemptive work surrounding man.

The Spirit of God IS in the world today searching for a bride for God’s Son, with the search being conducted among those comprising the one new man.  And ONCE the Spirit has completed this work, the one new man WILL be removed (rapture), with a view to this new man being dealt with in relation to the reason he had been called into existence. Then God WILL resume His dealing with Israel (during SEVEN unfulfilled years [tribulation], completing not ONLY Daniel’s unfulfilled Seventieth Week BUT Man’s Day as well).

Let it be FOREVER stated:  Redeemed man has COME into a position from which he can NEVER be removed.  But this same redeemed man, in this position, is directly responsible to his Creator; and, at a future date, he WILL either inherit as a joint-heir with his Lord or suffer loss in the presence of his Lord.  The former will be realized through the salvation of his SOUL OR the latter will, instead, be realized through the LOSS of his soul.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The race in which Christians SHOULD find themselves, in the light of Hebrews 11:1ff and other related scriptures, is a race of the faith (cf. 2 Timothy 4:7).  The “saving of the soul” is in view (Hebrews 10:39), which is what Peter in his first epistle referred to as “the end [goal]” of the Christian’s faith as he runs the race — “Receiving the end [goal] of your faith, even the salvation of your SOULS” (1 Peter 1:9).  And the saving or losing of one’s soul has to do with occupying OR being denied a position with Christ in His kingdom (cf. Matthew 16:24-17:5; 25:14-30; Luke 19:12-27).

Most Christians have been taught wrong for years — not necessarily concerning how to be saved, BUT concerning the purpose for salvation and that which lies ahead for redeemed man. AND because this erroneous teaching pertaining to salvation has become SO ingrained within their way of thinking, attempts to present salvation from the correct Biblical perspective are usually met with askance looks, opposition, or antagonism on almost every hand.

(See in this site The Pastor’s Primary Responsibility by Charles Strong of Bible One.)

Thus, it is no wonder that corruption and confusion have marked the proclamation of this message throughout Man’s Day.

Christians talk about being saved and going to heaven, though MOST don’t have the slightest idea concerning what is involved in saved man’s association with the heavens.

Satan, the present ruler IN the kingdom — ruling FROM a heavenly sphere through the Gentile nations on earth (cf. Daniel 10:13-20; Luke 4:5-6; Ephesians 6:12) — knows that the ultimate outworking of that contained in the message surrounding the salvation of the SOUL WILL bring about an end to his rule.

Accordingly, Satan has done all within his power, over millenniums of time, to destroy this message. And exactly HOW well he has succeeded can be seen on practically every hand in Christendom today (cf. Matthew 13:31-33; Luke 18:8; Revelation 3:14-21).

IN SUMMARY, the purpose of my website is soul-winning of the saved (saved by the grace of God) requiring AN understanding of the Word of the KINGDOM (something few saved presently possess BUT upon which this website concentrates).

FoundationaAsides:

1. Teachings surrounding the salvation of the soul are, in reality, the central subject matter in ALL of the epistles — both the Pauline and general epistles, from Romans through Jude.

RefA Study of Hebrews EXCERPTS also - in this site at the bottom of this page.

2. A basic, fundamental rule to remember is the rule of “first mention.” The FIRST time a subject is mentioned in Scripture, a pattern, a mold, a TYPE is established at that point that remains UNCHANGEABLE throughout the REMAINDER of Scripture, and it centers on an UNCHANGEABLE structure of the Word given by the UNCHANGEABLE God.

Important:  My website is set up with a 'hover' tool, a tool which displays scripture by simply placing one's cursor over any scripture reference, without having to 'click' on the reference.  For some computers the hover does not work, so one has to click on the scripture, or often changing the compatibility mode in your computer will correct the situation.

Also one may double-click any word and get an instant definition and access to an audio pronunciation.  Of course not every word is in this dictionary, especially Biblical names. Try it now by double clicking copasetic

For Biblical names pronunciations see Net Ministries AUDIO Biblical Words Pronunciation.

Another feature of some commentaries is hearing Strong's words pronounced.  Instead of 'hovering' on a scripture reference, 'click' on the reference.  To the left of the scripture pulled up click on Tools, then Interlinear.  Note to the far right a speaker icon.  Click on the icon and hear the word(s) pronounced.

Example using 'screen shots' Click on Without Form and Void, then click on Genesis 1:1-2a and the following screen shot is part of what you'll see:

Click on 'Tools' on the left, choose 'Interlinear' and click on it.  Then this is what you'll see:

To hear a word pronounced click on the dim speaker icon to the right.  Voila!  Also one can go directly to Blue Letter Bible AUDIO PRONOUNCE.

Aside:  Five sites/commentaries embedded in my mind:  1) Why was man created [Why did God Create Man?].  2) There would be no need of the Judgment Seat if there were no 'second aspect' of salvation [Why does Christ Judge the Saved and What does He Judge?].  3) What one does ongoing to enhance the prospect of winning the race for an awaiting inheritance [Holy Spirit – Ministries and Filling!].  And definitely 4) [A Key to the Scriptures] and 5) [Participation in the Race].

Certain Christian intelligentsia of the present dispensation, even though saved and in a position to understand the Word of God, too often seek spiritual discernment in the light of worldly wisdom rather than through comparing “scripture with scripture” and looking to the indwelling Spirit to lead them “into all truth” (John 16:13; 1 Corinthians 2:9-13).  ~Charles Strong of Bible One.

Word of the Kingdom and Satan’s Ongoing War Against Christians LINKS

The following linked commentaries are in this site.

The hope (the blessed hope) set before every Christian is simply that he/she may, at the judgment seat of Christ, be found qualified to occupy one of the numerous, proffered positions with Christ in His kingdom.  A Christian — already in possession of eternal life — may or may not realize this hope, for such depends entirely upon one’s faithfulness during his present pilgrim walk (Hebrews 6:3-8).  ~Arlen Chitwood of Lamp Broadcast

COMMENTARIES Available in Pamphlet Form 
A Study of Hebrews
By Dr. Mark Miller of My Life Ministries


Nowhere in the book of Hebrews does it tell us HOW to "get saved" – "by grace through faith."

On the other hand it is a book written to believers about HOW to successfully and victoriously live by faith, pressing on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  This goal and prize is the reward OF being able to "lay hold of that for which I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus."  And that is TO rule and reign as a co-heir with Him in the age to come.  That IS our goal.

Abraham was the FIRST to be called "Hebrew."  "Abram the Hebrew" (Genesis 14:13).  The word Hebrew is taken FROM the Hebrew word "eber" which means to cross over.

Abraham was a Hebrew in the sense that he HEARD God and BELIEVED God's promise and "crossed over" (in faith) to a place which he was TO receive for an inheritance.  Abraham made it to Canaan, the Promised Land, BUT included in the promise WAS "as many descendants as the stars of heaven and as the sand which is by the seashore."  The promise ALSO included "and in you all families of the earth will be blessed."  Abraham died with his hope fixed ON promises he never got to see fulfilled.

Hebrews are sojourners who have NO home in this world, but have hope fixed ON a future land [future time] that God is preparing.  That's Abraham's goal!  That SHOULD be our goal!

Abraham's example teaches us that we, who ALSO are Hebrews (sojourners) in this world, should live our lives with our hope FIXED on God's promise of the coming kingdom in which we can be co-heirs, sharing with Christ in His inheritance - ruling and reigning the world with Him.  That IS The Great Hope and the great motivation that we have as believers to live well our life BY faith.

Christ has now BEEN exalted to the right hand of the Father and will soon BRING His enemies into subjection and is ready to REIGN with his many co-heirs / companions / heirs / fellow partakers, e.g., ALL qualified Hebrews – those who follow Hebrews’ instructions, preventing disqualification, WILL inherit salvation.

Lucifer was created BEFORE man and had rulership OVER province earth with many other angels who were subordinate TO him.

Lucifer was disqualified when pride WAS found in him and he attempted TO take God's place and rule all the provinces.  He led one-third of those angels under his charge IN his rebellion against God. (Ezekiel 28:11-19)

(Ref. 24 Elders Casting Their Crowns are ANGELS and 24 Elders Identified in this site, to identlfy the angels that did NOT stay with Satan.)

God responded BY disqualifying him and those angels loyal to him which ALSO brought destruction on his province, earth, leaving it "without form and void with darkness over the face of the deep."  (Genesis 1:2a)

Later, when God decided to restore the earth and create man TO have dominion, there was Satan, NOT wanting to relinquish rulership TO man.

Therefore Satan deceived Eve and brought about THE fall and disqualification of man TO rule (have dominion) over the earth.  (Genesis 3)

Man and the earth were in a fallen state, but God immediately began THE salvation which has continued for about 6,000 years.  This salvation process is TO restore man and the earth to God's original plan and purpose.  Man WILL have dominion!

Now Christ, who was made for a little while lower than THE angels, for the purpose OF redemption and salvation, has NOW been exalted to the right hand of the Father.  While total dominion has not yet been granted, Jesus is at last crowned WITH Glory and Honor.

He is presently IN the process of bringing “many sons to glory” who also will BE exalted above the angels to reign AS co-heirs with Christ in the coming age (millennial age).  Bringing many sons to glory IS a major topic of the book of Hebrews.

One writer, whom I respect, gives this perspective on this subject when he writes, "It is one thing to be a child of God saved forever more.  BUT, it is quite another to BE a Son of Glory who will ascend the throne WITH Christ in His Kingdom."
