Entering into the New Covenant
When we become Kingdom citizens, we enter into the New Covenant, where His Will is obeyed in our lives. We begin a life that glorifies the Father Almighty and our decisions, using our freedom of choice, is very important for our spiritual growth until we reach the finish line, the spiritual maturity, where we become exactly like the Appointed Son, when we can say,
“Our heart is fixed, our mind is made up, and nothing can change us.”
Trial and temptation merely become a part of our victory and as we get these under our feet, we have finally trodden the head of the serpent that wants to destroy the strength of our faith in following the Father’s Will.
When we enter into the Covenant, into the agreement of
“From now on, His Will be done in our lives and not ours anymore,”
we will undergo many trials. We will go through the fire that will try us if we are genuine.
Every time we go through the fire, we will always need to make a decision. The devil is on our left and the Father and His angels are on our right; they will be waiting because it is after the trial that the real ‘you’ is exposed. The devil will put many trials of difficulties and hardship in our lives and he will whisper in your ear,
“After all that you have been through, will you continue?”
And when you begin to feel that there is no more reason for you to continue following the Father’s Will, that is the very time that the temptation becomes very strong. The devil will be saying,
“After all these, you will still go on?”
Then you have to make a decision again – to continue or to discontinue – it is your choice. What will you do? I am your model. The Appointed Son is your model.
What you are undergoing is nothing compared to what I had undergone, and I am just a human being like you. When I knew it was the Father calling me, I resolved once and for all, even in my limited capacity at that moment because I was in the level of infancy in my knowledge and understanding of His Will, I made a permanent decision — no matter what. I found Him, He found me. I will not go back. I will continue, no matter what happens, no considerations. Burn your bridges behind when you are following the Father’s Will.
We are here not to be disqualified. We are here wired to succeed in our spiritual quest to become sons and daughters of the Father Almighty.
It is not automatic, unlike how it is in the Church Age. There they say that if you raise your hands and confess that He is the Savior, automatically, you become qualified for salvation and you are going to heaven. They are grossly misrepresenting what Jesus Christ, the Savior (whom they claim is their Savior) had said in the Covenant, in the New Testament, in the New Agreement. This is why when I came and I inherited all of these, I divulged it and showed it to all those who want to come and become sons and daughters of the Father and inherit eternal life.
Matthew 7:21 says:
Not all that say unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but they that do the Will of my Father who is in Heaven.
I have never heard the people in the Church Age say that. I have never heard them preach that. They have never quoted that to the people. All you see is their healing. They are so mesmerized with the healing, with the miracles but have neglected the fine print of the New Agreement that they must sign with their commitment and dedication by repentance.
They made the prophesying, the speaking in tongues, the gifts of the spirit as their license to go to heaven, only to hear the rebuke and the rejection from the Father Almighty when He will say, “Who are you? I don’t know you. Depart from me, you that do iniquity.”
2017 is the Year of the Father’s Glorification Part 2. We will glorify our Almighty Father continuously every year.
Abide in the Son
John 15:1-8 says:
v-1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
v-2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
v-3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
v-4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
v-5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
v-6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
v-7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
v-8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
This is not applicable to denomination and religion. It is only applicable when there is a Son. These are the Words of the Begotten Son 2,000 years ago. Now that He has produced an Appointed Son from the fallen Adamic race, I have inherited these words. They are applicable only to me, not to denomination and religion.
Look at denomination and religion when they quote these verses. They don’t synchronize. They don’t fit it because it is not theirs. They are just servants. They have nothing to do with the inheritance. These are applicable only to the Son.
I am the vine, you are the branches. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, they are cut off by the Father and every branch that beareth fruit, they will be given more attention so that they will bring more fruit.
How will you do that? Abide in the Son. ‘Abide in the Son’ means, stay faithful to my Words. The Word that I speak unto you, I speak not of myself but the Father that lives in me, He doeth the works, (John 14:10).
I told you before that the hand of the Father is upon me. Wherever I go, the place I go to will be blessed. Any man connected to me will be blessed, will be fruitful. As long as they follow what I say, wherever they go, they are branches that will bear fruit. Whatever mission I give to them, it will succeed. This is why I am very careful. I keep distance from the people who want to get close to me but don’t want to follow what I say, because they will be blessed regardless.
That is why I’m always so glad to be with you, the faithful ones. This is the reason why the Lord, our Almighty Father said 2,000 years ago,
“Who are my brothers? Who are my sisters? Who is my father and who is my mother?” Those that He will bless… “Here, you see them. They that listen to my words and obey them. They are my father. They are my mother. They are my brothers. They are my sisters. I will bless them.”
This is why there is always purity in the Kingdom Nation, where the Son is the Head, because these Words are going to be followed. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, they are cut off and every branch that bear fruit, they will be given more attention so that they will bear more fruit.
“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
The Son is the only one that can say that. If the denomination applies this to themselves, it’s going to be awkward. They have misrepresented the Almighty Father in so many ways. The ‘fruit’ I am talking about, first of all, are souls that will become sons and daughters.
Only sons and daughters will remain in the House
You will not abide in the Kingdom if you do not become sons and daughters; only sons and daughters will remain in the Kingdom. Servants and slaves will not remain in the House. Who are the slaves? Those that opt to follow their own will, like those outsiders who don’t know the will of the Father. All they know is their own will. All they know is what they want and that is what they do. Sinners are like that. They do their own will. They don’t know the Father’s Will.
When you enter into the Covenant, you sign it with your commitment by repentance, and you say,
“Not my will but Your Will be done, Father.”
You remain like a servant as long as you are an infant in your knowledge and in your wisdom and understanding of the Father’s Will because you are under tutors and governors.
But there is an appointed time, when you have to go past being a servant, when nobody will teach you what to do, when you will no longer be under tutors and governors, when you reach that level of growth where you can stand alone and say to the Father,
“My heart is fixed, my mind is made up. Nobody can change me in following the Father’s Will,”
then you are declared a son and daughter and you will be engaged in His work, just like me. I can already send you. The ‘a child is born’ phase is finished. Now, it is ‘a son and a daughter is given.’ You are given to the world. You are given to your place, your area of responsibility, where you can stand for Him, be the banner of salvation there and the model of salvation wherever you are, wherever you go.
The Kingdom Nation is a big spiritual family of sons and daughters, no one is left behind. We help each other because we have this spiritual ideology of
“Love one another that the world may know you are my disciples.” (John 13:35)
We are trained to become sons and daughters. We go through the process of spiritual growth because when we reach that level, like me, then you inherit everything, like me.
Real freedom and how to guard it
“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”
I overcame, that is why I am the first. I am the Appointed Son of God. That “he” there qualifies all of you, all of you that come into the Kingdom. He that overcometh shall inherit all things — all things that I have inherited, you will also inherit — eternal life, rapture. As soon as you become a son and a daughter of God, you will also inherit what I have inherited. When you are in that level of being a son and daughter, there is no more poverty because everything is yours.
Everyone that comes into the Kingdom and signs the agreement that
“His Will be done,”
will go through the process of spiritual growth of water and fire. As soon as they overcome, I will welcome them and say,
“Now, you are the Father’s son and daughter.”
You will inherit everything. No one is left behind.
Now, you are free. You have been made free by the Son. You are now free to do the Father’s Will wherever you go and everything is yours, but you have to guard your freedom with your permanent choice in doing the Father’s Will because if you divert from that, you go back to slavery and I will send you to the slave master, Satan Lucifer the devil.
You are now free to go do the Father’s Will but you have to guard your freedom with your permanent choice.
There are people who represent God but are worse than those who have no God at all because they misrepresent God. They changed His name. They changed His image. They changed His Word and covered it and then presented it to the world as truth. They are deceptive doctrines and dogmas that mislead us all. But right now, the Father’s love and compassion is upon all of us because He called and chose an Appointed Son that will tell you the real truth.
Fear Him who has the power to destroy your body and throw your soul to hell
Do not subject yourselves to a doctrine that is deceptive. Communism is like a religion. It is also very deceiving and they also want you to be loyal and to lay down your life for their cause. Will you die for Lucifer? These people are godless; what they seek is power and money. Their instruments are terrorism, violence, the mouth of a gun to terrorize people, and then act as if they are the gods. They want people to tremble.
Don’t ever do that here. Bad karma will be upon whoever does that here.
My Father said,
“Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28)
Fear not the terrorists who kill the body but are not able to kill the soul. I will tell you whom to fear – fear Him who has the power to destroy your body and throw your soul to hell. That is whom to fear. That is my Father.
I am a human being like you. I display the fruits of the spirit in me. Sometimes you abuse that and you think I’m weak. You don’t know me. You don’t know who I am. You don’t know who is at my back. You don’t know who is inside of me. You don’t know the power that backs me up. But I don’t want to use that. I don’t want to use these powers to destroy souls. I want to use these powers to save souls. That is why what is being displayed here are the fruits of the spirit — love, peace, joy, kindness, goodness, meekness, long suffering: when you see those displayed, as this is the atmosphere of the Kingdom of Heaven now found on the earth today, do not misjudge me for being weak because I am not weak. The fruits of the spirit are not a sign of weakness. The fruits of the spirit are a sign of the strength of the mighty.
Look at my Father, Jesus Christ, when He came down on the earth. He displayed the meekness of sheep and people from the outside world, who use their physical strength and power to display their might, thought that He was the weakest of all because He was led as a sheep to the slaughter: He was made to bear the cruel cross and crucified unmercifully, being persecuted; finally, He died there on the cross. You think that’s weakness? That is what defeated the forces of hell that destroys the souls of men. He is not only the God of the living. He is the God that has the keys of death, hell and the grave.
On the third day, He rose again, having with Him the keys of death, hell and the grave. When He was resurrected, He told His disciples,
“Now, I have overcome the world. Now, all power is given to me, in earth and in heaven.”
You call that weakness?
Love is the greatest power
There should be no greed and selfishness when we know the Will of the Father. This is why He made me the World President of all children, sons and daughters of the Father Almighty. Wherever I go, I defeat the works of Satan Lucifer the devil, I defeat the works of the flesh and I institute the true spiritual reform in man which is surrender to the Will of the Father Almighty: because unless you surrender to His Will and set aside your own will, there will be no peace on earth.
The teachings of the Almighty Father are wonderful but it is being taken for granted. These religious people are so good in standing as if they are statues of holiness, but the teachings of the Father are set aside, are taken away. So no reform happens in man.
No change has happened within man. No change will happen within us unless we zero-in to the Kingdom of the Father and His Will be done on earth. Unless we zero-in to His Will and surrender to that Will so that He is our God and we cease to be gods interpreting good and evil according to our own interpretation, there will be no peace.
There won’t even be peace in your own family. But look at the Kingdom, there are 6.5 million Kingdom citizens, but there is no trouble, no quarelling, no fighting, no jealousy and no envy. Everyone is taught the Word of the Father.
The New Agreement tells us that His commandments and statutes are no longer written on tablets of stone. They are no longer written on paper. They are now written in the heart and in the mind of His people. They have become who we are. It is our spirit, the divine characteristics of the Almighty Father transferred to us. We have renewed ourselves. Now we can make sense of what He said because His preaching is not religious, it is spiritual and we live in obedience to the Will of the Father.
All that are in Christ are new creations, are new creatures. Old things are passed away, behold, all things have become new.
When you people confess to love the poor, it comes only from your mouth, your ideologies. But when you look closely, not even one poor person has been helped. Do you really need to terrorize? Do you really need to deceive? Do you really need to threaten others when you love the poor? So that your cause will stand? That is foolishness.
No cause shall stand on the ashes of terrorism. You will not last long. Look at Hitler.
There was no more powerful man than Hitler. He was the scariest of all. He had power is in his hands, but where is he right now? Jesus Christ was killed on the cross, and where is He right now? He is the King of heaven and earth.
What He brought to this world many think is the weakest of all because He brought love. They think that is weakness; it is the most powerful force on earth. It’s the only force that will stand forever.
If in your family you have seven or eight children but if you terrorize them all to make them obey you, see if any of them will be left. Not even one will stay with you.
You cannot administer through terrorism. You cannot manage people through terrorism or the use of threats. The most powerful force in the world is the love of the Father in Heaven. That is also what is going to remain. Threatening and terrorism will only last a while, but love will last forever.
That is why in the Kingdom, the supreme law is love – the love of God.
Let me ask you. When you were not yet in the Kingdom, how many of you were drug addicts? What did many young people in the Kingdom involved in the Keepers’ Club International do when I preached to them that the Father loves them? They left everything that is not His Will, did they not?
But you never heard me say, “Get away from drugs.” What I said to you was, “Do the will of the Father. What is not His Will, leave behind.” Your heart was the one to tell you, through the wisdom of the Father, that drugs are not His Will. You voluntarily left it; nobody frightened you to do that.
When the Almighty Father says,
“Love one another,”
we will love one another. When the Almighty Father says,
“Love your neighbor as yourself,”
we will love our neighbor. When the Almighty Father says,
“Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, bless them that curse you,”
that is exactly what we are going to do, no matter the consequences.
No one else can teach love and show divine love, only Jesus Christ who is our Father.
I studied all kinds of religions – Eastern religion, Middle Eastern religion, anciet religion — whatever religion that acknowledges a supreme being above them, I studied it all, but I did not graduate from Theology – that thing which the DDDs and Phds are mastering. In just three months, I finished studying all of those religions, while they spend 12 years studying it. They write volumes upon volumes of books but none of those have come to the completion of the Father’s Will. Not one has zeroed-in to the Will of the Father that will solve the problems of this world.
But look at us, wherever we go, there will be Kingdom citizens that will be the seed of righteousness in their own countries, yet they are not fanatics. We are not so heavenly-minded that we are no earthly-good. We are the salt of the earth and we are the light of the world.
What I teach here is that you open your hearts, go into the New Covenant, into the New Agreement, sign it with your dedication, by repentance, and then go and do the Will of the Father.
I will guide you to go into the third level of growth. When you get there, you are the completed human being that was supposed to be completed in the Garden of Eden if Adam and Eve had not been deceived. It is completed now in the Garden of Eden Restored, producing an Appointed Son from the fallen Adamic race, representing the whole of humanity in the person of the Appointed Son of God.
A Kingdom that lasts forever
Kingdom citizens, we are in the center of the Father’s Will. The Kingdom Nation is the greatest nation upon the face of the earth today. The Kingdom Nation is the Nation above the nations of the earth, where everybody has one spirit and one devotion to the Almighty Father. I love His precepts!
One day, I might not be able to come to the United Nations; I will just send someone to the United Nations to represent me and he will talk like me there. He will tell the leaders of the nations of the world,
“You are not united at all. You are nations at war against each other. Your precepts are nothing. Listen to me, I am the representative of the Appointed Son of God here in the United Nations. Listen to what I say! Unless you surrender your will to the Will of the Almighty Father, there will be no peace on the earth.”
These people in the Middle East are very quarrelsome, but they have a God and they have religion. People in other places have no God, but they too are quarrelsome because they are a god to themselves. And the result of that will be what? Another world war? World war III?
Look how stupid people can be . They are killing each other. They cannot understand each other because they are all gods to themselves.
Mao Tse-tung said,
“I am more god than you.”
Fidel Castro answered,
“No, I am more god than you.”
Trump would say,
“I am more god than you. I’ll bomb you all!”
Where is this world heading to if all of these gods will not surrender to the God of Heaven, to the King of kings and obey His Will?
But do not worry, my brothers and sisters, in the midst of all of these kingdoms, the Father in Heaven has set up a Kingdom that will last forever and ever and ever.
“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.”
Love and righteousness in obedience to the Will of the Father are the precepts and commandments of the Kingdom that shall never be destroyed.
In his book “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle), Hitler dreamt of a Third Reich, a third rule… that will rule the world for a thousand years…
It’s the dream of one man who is used to following his own will, a god to himself. Hitler dreamt of his desire. But what happened? After four years, he committed suicide by burning himself because there is only One who can rule on earth and in heaven forever, the One who created everything, our Almighty Father, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Do not boast
Kingdom citizens, sons and daughters, when you go to the third level of growth in abiding with the Father through the Son, you will become leaders like me, and remember, you will be given great favor, great power and great authority. Don’t ever be deceived by Satan again; don’t ever be enticed like he enticed our first parent, Adam.
“You will die,”
said the Father, but Satan Lucifer the devil said,
“No, you won’t die. You will become gods like Him.”
They were enticed by the world of Lucifer. Don’t be enticed by the world of Lucifer. Always abide with the Son. Always remember what I have told you. Write it in your heart and in your mind. Don’t let devilish pride come into your heart.
I have seen those who are not yet mature but are still going toward that maturity level, but who were given authority? Somehow they become puffed-up and aspire for something that God had not given them; and they start to covet what is not for them. Their heart becomes like Lucifer.
They will credit all the glory to themselves — not to the Father, not to the Son anymore. But when they are in front of me, they are fine; they acknowledge me, but when they are out of my sight, they become little gods again.
Do not ever, ever do that. Give the glory always to the Father through the Son. When you are entrusted with power, authority and dominion, ascribe your victory and give the Father through the Son all glory, like what 99.9% of you are doing. But there is still 00.1%.
Maybe out of 6 million of you, there is one or two who do not understand this. But I won’t neglect to tell you even if you are the minority, because you will destroy your soul if you do that. If you ascribe anything to yourself that you have done for the Kingdom, you are going to destroy your soul.
This is a lesson for all those who are in power and authority, wherever you are, like Nebuchadnezzar, like Herod in the Old Testament.
Look, the Father is concerned with the affairs of humanity because He made this world, this earth according to His Will. That is why He appointed a Son to be a model and example of governance. Look at what Daniel 4:28-37 says.
The king here made a mistake.
v-28 All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar.
v-29 At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.
v-30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?
Do not make this mistake! Leaders, listen to me… All of you who are in the third phase or level of growth, you are all leaders.
Do not brag. They say that in our race, the Ilonggos are the most conceited people. I don’t believe that. Kapampangans are the most conceited of all and yet, He called a Kapampangan to become the Appointed Son to teach you humility. He brought me to great achievement in 31 years, yet, people’s reaction to my success is always to ask,
“How can you stay humble?”
Why, if you were in my place, what would you do? They would answer,
“There will be no Kingdom. I would have squandered everything because I could not handle it. It is too glorious.”
That is why He did not choose you. That is why He chose me and made me His Appointed Son.
Look at this great king, Nebuchadnezzar. He was a leader and he ascribed unto himself all the successes that he had achieved in Babylon. One day, he stood in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon and said, “Look at glorious Babylon. Is it not I, Nebuchadnezzar, that have built for the house of the kingdom, by the might of my power and for the honor of my majesty?”
If you want God to take notice of you, say that. All of heaven will suddenly pay attention to you, “Who is that? It’s another god.”
Nebuchadnezzar ascribed power and honor to himself and did not give God the glory. What happened after that?
Judgement coming down from heaven
v-31 While the word was in the king’s mouth there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken…”
Right away, there was judgment and a decision coming from heaven.
“…the kingdom is departed from thee.”
Every power on earth comes from the Father, so don’t let the shutters of your head be open to the hangin (wind; Filipino slang meaning boastfulness). Keep it closed against the hangin because later your hangin will not only be a typhoon, but a hurricane; it might even be a cyclone that will deceive you. You will overestimate yourself and you will not ascribe the glory to the Father Almighty. I am saying this to all the people who are listening to me.
Kingdom citizens, I am reminding you of this, especially those who have been given authority and power to go all over the nations of the earth and you achieve success wherever you go – you are only successful because you are with me. You have abided with the Son. You are a branch that is connected with me. You are not doing it alone. The Father is with you through the Appointed Son. So do not ascribe that success to yourself and say,
“It is by my intelligence. Maybe I am the most intelligent person here in the Kingdom. Maybe I am more intelligent than Pastor.”
I hope no one is thinking like that.
Nebuchadnezzar thought in his heart these things,
“My power, my honor.”
That was the beginning of his fall. Then, a voice was heard from heaven.
“Nebuchadnezzar, the kingdom is departed from thee…”
v-32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
Here is a lesson from Heaven: When I was in Tamayong, the Father taught me this,
“When I give you favor, power and authority, remember me always. I am your Father who owns it all and I can take it all from you.”
And the decision of heaven against Nebuchadnezzar was,
“You will eat grass as the oxen in the field for seven years until you learn the lesson that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men. And He can give it to whomsoever He will.”
That is the Father in heaven. And so Nebuchadnezzar was taught a lesson.
Look at the powerhouses in the Middle East, they rule in the kingdom of men. Saddam Hussein was one of them. Libya’s Gaddafi was also one of them. They felt they are already gods. And this is happening not only in the kingdom of men, but even in the entertainment kingdom. Look at Michael Jackson. When he thought he was more popular than Jesus Christ, he slept and he did not wake up. Look at John Lennon of the Beatles. He was the one who said,
“We are more popular than Jesus Christ.”
Then one day, somebody asked him for an autograph and while he was signing it, a crazy man came-up to him and shot him in the head. Remember, you are still a human being. You have no power, unless it is given to you.
Leaders in the Kingdom, you know that as well as I do, because we are all one in this and we always give God the glory. That is why the Father is so pleased with us. That is why the Father always blesses us.
v-33 The same hour…
The decision was swift! In the Supreme Court of Heaven, as soon as he said it, the word was still in his mouth, a gavel was already banging in heaven. In the Court of Heaven, a decision came down in the same hour. It was fulfilled.
…the thing was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws…”
That is what is going to happen to the foolish.
Nebuchadnezzar acknowledges God
v-34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar…
After seven years, all of a sudden, the Father allowed sanity to return to Him.
“…lifted up mine eyes…”
This is the time when he acknowledged that he is no longer the god that he though he was, and he began to focus on Someone greater than he.
“…and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation.”
Don’t forget that, Kingdom citizens, sons and daughters who are in places of very important leadership in the Spiritual Revolution, in the Financial Revolution and in the Revolution of Excellence, those that are holding very lofty positions in the Kingdom, remember that.
All of you out in the secular world, remember this. You want to be blessed? Give glory to the Father and acknowledge His Appointed Son.
ABIDE IN THE SON. I am the true vine, you are my branches. The Father is going to bless us if you don’t forget this lesson. And in John 15:8, He said,
“Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.”
There is another fool in the New Testament, 2,000 years after Jesus Christ came. This is a story that is recorded in the Word of God, in Acts 12:20-24:
v-20 And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king’s chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king’s country.
v-21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
Herod was a king that was assigned by the emperor of Rome to be the king of Palestine, ruler of the Jewish people. So the Jews in Palestine where under him. He was an orator; and he made an oration, speaking very fluently and very convincingly. He was a sweet talker.
v-22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
They made Herod a god.
And look at the judgment of heaven when you do that.
v-23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him because he gave not God the glory…”
He died right away. So always give the Father the glory through the Son.
v-24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.
Do not compare your words to the Words of God or the Words of the Son. You will be ruined if you do that. Always give the glory unto Him.
How do you give God the glory? Always put the words of the Father through the Son first in your life.
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33)
Do not forget, he that honoreth the Son honoreth the Father; but he that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father that sent him.
Nobody can teach you like this. Nobody in the religious world has taught you like this because it was not given unto them. It is given only to the Appointed Son. He showed me these ministries – the seven buses. He said,
“Six of these buses I have given all, but the seventh bus, the most beautiful. I have not given that to anyone. I will give it to you.”
Everything I have is given of the Father. So everything we have is given of the Father. We don’t own anything in this world, we have only inherited them. We will use them according to the Will of the One who gave it to us, our Almighty Father, and we will do all things according to His Will.
