Chapter 1 WHAT JESUS SAID ABOUT IT

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

Now, the Jews did not transgress and were not found to be in sin, until the appearing of Jesus Christ in the world, and then for them, the law gave way to grace, and truth and righteousness were manifested in the flesh of the Son of God. Until Jesus came into the world, the Jews were by the law, by its ordinances and oblations and sacrifices and alms and tithings, and by their works, forgiven their sins. But when the law, and the ordinances, and the oblations, and the sacrifices, and the tithes, and the offerings for sin, and works were done away with, they had no longer a covering for their sins, no longer a working out of their sins, no longer an appeasement for their sins, no longer a goat to sacrifice, no longer the shedding of blood to take the punishment for them, no longer even an intercessor for them with God, but they were bound in them, bound in their sins, and found in them without an escape from the wraths and judgments of God. John 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. Seeing therefore, that the Jews had lost their salvation, Jesus said to His own, His apostles, I must go and prepare a place for you, for the law and all of its ordinances and sacrifices are no longer the covenant. I am the new testament, and the new covenant, and therefore, you must have a new place prepared for you, for the old is done away with, and a new covenant must be placed into effect. No longer can any man come to the Father through a prophet, or a priest, or a sacrifice, or tithe, or offering, or oblation, or alms, or works. The only way a soul can be saved from sin, is to repent, repent with a Godly sorrow and mourning for his sins, and then be baptized, submerged in water, having them washed away, forgiven, and the power of sin broken, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. After the crucifixion, death and burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. . . . . . .Matt. 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 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.

Jesus said . . . . I go to prepare a place for you. It is also written by the pen of the Apostle Paul concerning Jesus. . . . .Romans 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. Jesus died upon the cross for me, assuming my death upon the cross for me, for my sins, that I would be raised to life as He was raised to life from death, if I believe, being forgiven by his death, and justified by His resurrection from the dead. That is the new covenant. That is the new testament. The law is dead, in that by it can no soul be saved. That is the Kingdom prepared in the death of Christ and in the resurrection of Christ, the place prepared in the death and in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, everlasting life. That Kingdom, that was at the foundation of the world lost through sin and disobedience, everlasting life, is restored to the world in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, the immortal One, though He was slain and died, raised Himself from death triumphantly destroying the works of the devil that happened in the garden of Eden that separated man from God, bringing death upon all generations. The resurrection from the dead of Jesus Christ shows without doubt the justification that is there in Him for all those who believe, that He being immortal could not die, death being unable to contain Him, and that same immortality is passed unto all those who receive Him. As through Adam death passed down to all generations all being born in Adam, those born into Christ have immortality and eternal life passed down unto them through His righteous resurrection from the dead. Those who sleep in Christ sleep in immortality and eternal life, and they shall be raised up in the last day to receive that Kingdom that was given at the foundation of the world. For Jesus said . . .John 11:25 I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

So we find that in the teachings of Jesus Christ, and in the commandments of Jesus Christ, are the treasures of His second coming hidden. Jesus said, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. And Jesus said . . . . .And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. Jesus said the apostles will sleep in Him, until He comes again and receives them in the ending, that His keeping power will keep them till the ending of the world, though they sleep, they shall arise in His Kingdom, and be risen up in Him, and by Him, and shall sit in judgment in the throne that is prepared for them. Matt. 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the **regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. And again Jesus said to His apostles . . . . .Luke 22:28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. 29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

**Regeneration means to bring into existence again that which once was, to establish again, to regenerate from heaven back again into the earth, the Kingdom. Regeneration means to reform or build again the Kingdom, to establish again, the Kingdom. Regeneration means to replace again that which was lost.

Jesus said concerning His own second coming. . . . . .Matt. 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Rev. 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

And Jesus said . . . . . .Matt. 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. And Jesus also said. . . .Matt. 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

I would not have you ignorant concerning what the end is, and just what is the ending.

I would not have you be ignorant of the last day. For Jesus said . . . . .John 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. Jesus said, AT THE LAST DAY! Now, we have the first will of the Father, and that will is an election, the elect, those that are given unto Jesus Christ, called of the Father, filled from the womb with the Spirit, and Christ shall raise them up, at the last day. And then we have the second will of the Father, that all those who see and believe upon the Son, shall also receive everlasting life, and Christ shall raise also these to life, at the last day, not a thousand years before the last day, BUT THE LAST DAY!

And Jesus did say . . . .Matt. 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

Jesus said. . . .Matt. 24:4 Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

And I say unto you, those that preach and teach the rapture doctrine, are deceivers, and are falsely prophesying, preaching a coming in secret. Jesus said concerning these, Believe them not! Follow them not!

Chapter 2 THE MYSTERY OF THE SON OF MAN

Matt. 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the **regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Let’s review again this thing called, REGENERATION.

**Regeneration means to bring into existence again that which once was, to establish again, to regenerate from heaven back again into the earth, the Kingdom. Regeneration means to reform or build again the Kingdom, to establish again, the Kingdom. Regeneration means to replace again that which was lost.

REGENERATION
bring into existence again
back again
build again
establish again
replace again

And the Apostle John said . . . . . .Rev. 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

There is a Priesthood in the Kingdom of Christ, and a Kingship in the Kingdom of Christ. There are Kings, and there are Priests ordained, anointed, called, and prepared by Jesus Christ, Kings and Priests unto God and his Father. And these are going to appear in the earth in the days of the Son of Man and the regeneration generation. For there is a blessed resurrection of the holy to bring the world into and through this time of regeneration of the Son of Man in the earth. For Jesus said concerning this holy resurrection . . . . .John 5:25 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. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself. There is an appointed holy resurrection to a certain election, as spoken by Jesus Christ. . . . and they that hear shall live. For Jesus went on to further say, speaking of the great resurrection at the ending of the world, John 5:27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 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. So here we see that Jesus speaks of a certain, limited, holy resurrection, for a certain elect . . . and they that hear shall live. These shall live again, as written of them, in an unknown generation, and in an unknown time, and Jesus said, marvel not, wonder not, for there shall be no understanding of these things. Jesus said, do not give these things thought, for you shall receive no answers to your questions concerning the resurrections. The only thing we know is that there is a holy resurrection of an election that shall be raised up to life. And the thing we know is that there is a great resurrection in the ending of the world when all the dead shall be raised to life again, at the last day, as spoken out of the mouth of Jesus Christ.

We know that during the thousand year reign of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the holy resurrection comes forth. And we know that at the ending of the world comes the final and great resurrection of all the dead, at the last day. And we know that during this same thousand years of the reign of the gospel of Jesus Christ, satan is imprisoned, and the election of God the Father enters into the world to restore the Kingdom of God, to regenerate the Kingdom of God, and to bring to pass all those things that are written, till every Word is fulfilled from Genesis thru Revelation and beyond, those things being fulfilled also that shall be heard in the ear, and written down, shouted from the housetops, that were sealed up, they being unwritten, heard only by John. These are those things that shall be written, and shall be heard, and shall be shouted, and shall be proclaimed.

Chapter 6 AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH

In the days of Noah, it is written. Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

Readers, did a bomb just go off in your head? It should have. Did a light enter into your heart? It should have. Did an understanding explode into your dark mind with a violence? It should have. For it says, They took them wives of all which they chose. And the fruit of that?

Gen. 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

And God said, I shall not always strive with men for the passions of their flesh, or against the passions of their flesh, but shall turn them over to all manners of uncleannesses, of intermarrying, and of taking unto themselves all manners of wives, and all manners of uncleannesses, and all manners of immoralities against Me, for I created man in my image, and made them one Adam.

Genesis 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

God drew Eve from Adam’s side, and created Eve from Adam, same race, same colour, and same flesh. The Adam and Eves of this world take unto themselves all husbands and wives they choose, and commit all immoralities they choose, and such as in the days of Noah, Jesus said, shall the ending be, a sign of the times, the days of Noah.

Matt. 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Gen. 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. . . . . . .

And the fruiting of this uncleanness is written, this uncleanness of taking of husbands and wives of any and all one chooses.

13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT SAYS TO THE CHURCHES . . . . .Where does the violence come from? For the earth is filled with violence through them. The earth is filled with violence through them, and who are the them?

Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

The WORD is the finality . . .and besides the WORD there is no truth, none, and it is written, violence comes from . . . .They took them wives of all which they chose.

Jesus said, Just as in the days of Noah would this ending generation bring forth this sign, marrying and giving in marriage any and all they choose. Let man stand up and accuse God of being a racist! or being unclean! or being wicked! or being evil! God destroyed the earth with water because. . . . .They took them wives of all which they chose. And God destroyed the earth and flooded the earth with water because this uncleanness fruited . . .For the earth is filled with violence through them. The WORD is the finality upon this subject, and the wise have no need of discussion, or debate, or even have to make a decision on this matter, for it is already written down, and the scriptures in the beginning said, God flooded the earth, destroyed the earth because of the violence that was fruited from. . .They took them wives of all which they chose.

Readers, judgment is knocking at the door. For through this uncleanness, this They took them wives of all which they chose, judgment again knocks. Gen. 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

The finality of the WORD is a flaming sword, powerful, without rebuke and without explanation, but just is. The I AM just is, and His WORD is GOD and is LORD. So we are in the days of Noah, and in the sign of the times of Noah, and it says, they knew not when the flood came and swept them all away. They knew not when. They knew not why. They knew not at all that they were being destroyed for the deeds of their flesh. They knew it not. There was no warning. There was no preaching. There was no teaching. There was no escape. For it is written, from this taking of all whatsoever wives they chose. . . . .

Gen. 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Ah! The children! What about the children, and the children’s children, and the children’s children’s children? And what about the begatting of this taking whatsoever wife or husband that sets the loins on fire, excluding the divinity of GOD? excluding the authority of GOD? This practice as written, fruits violence, wickedness, bloodshed, and every wicked imagination of the thoughts of the mind and heart. And this practice fruits its own practice, and this practice is that practice that God hates, the deeds of the Nicolaitanes. Rev. 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate. And again written . . .Rev. 2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.

There is no good fruiting from this practice, and a good tree bears good fruit, and an evil tree bears evil fruit. A good tree cannot bear evil fruit and an evil tree cannot bear good fruit. You will know the tree by the fruits thereof. And the fruits of marrying any and all you choose, fruits every wicked imagination of the thoughts of the mind and heart, and fruits violences, and hatreds, and bloodsheds, along with every manner of wickedness, from generation to generation to generation, spreading violences and hatreds as a pestilence and plague upon the land.

As in the days of Noah, so shall the ending be. And the ending is not prophesied to be a flood, but a fire. And as written, they shall know not but the fire shall take them away. The earth shall be purified by fire, for this practice has spawned pestilences, plagues, and death. Have you understood the judgment? the ending? and the why of it? and the when of it? Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. . . . . . .13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Brethren, be comforted by the words of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. And let your hearts rest in peace. John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. For Jesus said . . .John 11:25 I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
