Jesus said the leadership of the last day church would be like the Pharisees and Sadducees of his day. They would reject his Gospel of Grace, which consists of three points. The True Character Of God The Father, The Redemption Of Mankind and The Judgment Of Satan and Fallen Angels.
John 9:28-29 Then They (Pharisees) reviled Him, (The Blind Man Jesus Healed) and said, Thou art His (Jesus’) disciple; but We Are Moses’ Disciples. (We Follow The Mosaic Law) 29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for This Fellow, (Jesus) We Know Not From Whence He Is. (Pharisees & Chose To Reject The New Covenant Of Grace & Stay Under The Law)
Matt 16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take Heed And Beware Of The Leaven (Doctrine) Of The Pharisees And Of The Sadducees.
Matt 16:12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the Leaven Of Bread,(Natural Food) But Of The Doctrine (The Mosaic Law) of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. (Leaven Represents Rebellion)
The leadership of the last day church, like the Pharisees and Sadducee’s that opposed the teachings of Jesus, views God The Father through the paradigm of the Law of Moses. They teach a God of Wrath that loves some people more than others. That has very little patients, gets angry and looses his temper, that demands your worship and obedience or he will destroy you and everything around you. Do good he will bless you, do bad he will punish you; sounds like Baal worship, the god of good and evil. Elijah, the prophet of fire, told Israel it was time to make a choice, serve Baal or serve God. Its time for the church as individuals to stand up and make a choice.
Phil 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, Work Out Your Own Salvation With Fear (Hating Evil=Prov 8:13) and Trembling. (Under The Power And Influence Of the Spirit Of Grace)
1 John 2:26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that Seduce You. (Try To Pull You Back Under The Law) 27 But The Anointing (Spirit Of Truth, Spirit Of Grace) which ye have received of him abideth in you, and Ye Need Not That Any Man Teach You: But as The Same Anointing (Spirit Of Truth, Spirit Of Grace) teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him. (Jesus)
Psalms 118:8 It is better to Trust In The Lord Than To Put Confidence In Man.
Rev 3:13-18 He that hath an ear, Let Him Hear (Spiritually Discern) what the Spirit saith unto the churches. 14 And unto the Angel (Pastor) of the church of the Laodiceans (The Last Church Age) write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I Would Thou Wert Cold Or Hot. (In Order To Know You Needed To Change) 16 So then because thou art Lukewarm, (Don’t Know You Need To Change) And neither cold nor hot, I will Spue Thee Out Of My Mouth. (Cannot Respond To As High Priest Or Agree & Repeat Your Prayers) = (Heb 3:1-19 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our Profession, (Confession) Christ Jesus; = (Jer 1:12 (b) For I Will Hasten (Watch For) My Word To Perform It.)
Rev 3:17 Because Thou Sayest, I Am Rich, And Increased With Goods, And Have Need Of Nothing; (Desire For Wealth More Than Desire For God, Rejecting Grace) And knowest not that thou art Wretched, And Miserable, And Poor, And Blind, And Naked. (Under The Law) 18 I counsel thee to Buy Of Me Gold Tried In The Fire, (The Word Illuminated) That Thou Mayest Be Rich;(In Good Works) And White Raiment, (Righteousness) That Thou Mayest Be Clothed, (Covered By The Spirit Of Grace) And that The Shame Of Thy Nakedness (Rejection Of Grace For The Law) do not appear; and anoint Thine Eyes (Spirit & Soul) With Eyesalve, (Anointing, The Spirit Of Truth) That Thou Mayest See. (Spiritually Discern Grace)
“Jesus Said” = Matt 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; Neither Knoweth Any Man The Father, Save The Son, And He To Whomsoever The Son Will Reveal Him.
John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, He Hath Declared Him. (Jesus Revealed The True Character Of God The Father)
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which We Have Heard Of Him, (From Jesus) and Declare Unto You, (What Jesus Revealed About God The Father) that God Is Light, And In Him Is No Darkness At All. (God The Father Only Has Mercy & Grace Not Death & Destruction)
John 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He That Hath Seen Me Hath Seen The Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
Mal 3:6 For I am the Lord, I Change Not; therefore ye Sons Of Jacob are not consumed.
Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the Same Yesterday, And Today, And Forever.
Matt 5:43-45 Ye Have Heard That It Hath Been Said, (By Moses In the Law) Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I Say Unto You, (Different Opinion From Moses And The Law) Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That Ye May Be The Children Of Your Father Which Is In Heaven:
Luke 6:35-36 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: For He (God The Father) Is Kind Unto The Unthankful And To The Evil. 36 Be Ye Therefore Merciful, As Your Father Also Is Merciful.
John 14:9-11 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He That Hath Seen Me Hath Seen The Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but The Father That Dwelleth In Me, He Doeth The Works. 11 Believe me that I Am In The Father, And The Father In Me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
John 8:28-29 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I Do Nothing Of Myself; But As My Father Hath Taught Me, I speak these things. 29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I Do Always Those Things That Please Him.
Growing up in church when the story of Jesus going into the temple in (John 2:12-15) was preached about. They always said “Jesus got mad, lost his temper and took a whip, beat the people and broke the furniture.” Does this sound strange to you? If you know what Jesus taught about God the Father and his message of love and forgiveness, it should sound very strange. It should sound absurd to you.
John 2:12-15 After this He (Jesus) went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days. 13 And the Jews’ Passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 And When He Had Made A Scourge Of Small Cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and The Sheep, And The Oxen; and Poured Out The Changers’ Money, and Overthrew The Tables;
Matt 21:11 And the multitude said, This Is Jesus The Prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. (Prophets Taught By Natural Illustrations, Everything A Prophet Did Meant Something Spiritually, Representing A Message From God) (Jesus Said In (Mark 4) He Never Taught Without Using A Parable, Which Is A Natural illustration Of A Spiritual Concept)
John 2:15 “Overthrew The Tables” =(To Overturn; Also To Return) “Jesus Showing That Passover Would Be About His Death, = “Shiva ”
The Talmud = (Mishnah & Commentary) mentions the practice of overturning beds and chairs during Shiva. = 7 Days Of Morning A Death Also Associated With Passover. Mourners would set low to the ground out of respect for the family of those who had died.
John 2:15 “Poured Out The Changers’ Money” (Jesus Showing They Were About To Move From Law To Grace) “Under The Law You Had To Bring Money” “Under Grace You Don’t Need Money, Its Free.”

John 2:15 And When He Had Made A Scourge Of Small Cords. = (Jesus fulfilled Isaiah’s Prophecy Declaring that he was Messiah) (When The Fallen Angels (demons) in the people saw Jesus setting and making a scourge (whip) fulfilling Isaiah’s Prophecy, they ran in fear taking the people with them thinking (Gen 3:15) was about to be fulfilled)(Just like they did through out the old testament when something happened that the prophets had spoken concerning the coming of Messiah)
1 Sam 17:50-51 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. 51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.
When Little David Bruised Goliaths head with a stone and then took Goliaths head with the sword, the Fallen Angels (Devils) in the philistines ran out of fear thinking Messiah had come to fulfill Gen 3:15.
When Gideon’s three hundred in (Judges 7:20 Blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon. Because all those things they did in the natural represented Messiah. The fallen angels (Devils) in the enemy’s camp ran in fear taking the people with them, thinking Messiah had come to fulfill Gen 3:15.
Isaiah 28:18 And Your (Fallen Angels) Covenant With Death (Law Of Sin And Death) shall be disannulled, and your agreement with Hell (Satan) shall not stand; when the Overflowing Scourge (Whip/ Jesus) Shall Pass Through, (At Jesus’ Resurrection) then ye shall be Trodden Down By It. (The Devils Head Bruised = Gen 3:15)
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between Thee (Satan) and The Woman, (Israel) and Between Thy Seed (Fallen Angels) and Her Seed; (Jesus) it shall Bruise Thy Head, (Take Away The Devils Authority In The Earth At Jesus’ Resurrection) and thou shalt bruise His Heel. (Jesus’ Death At The Cross)

“Jesus Did Not Act On What He Saw Or Heard In The Natural.”
ISA 11:3 And shall make Him (Jesus) of quick understanding in The Fear Of The Lord: (To Hate Evil, (Pr 8:13) and He (Jesus) shall Not Judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: (Not what he saw with his natural eyes or heard with his natural ears but Spiritual Discernment)
John 8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I Judge No Man.
John 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I Judge Him Not: for I Came Not To Judge The World, (Humanity) but to save the world.
John 3:17 For God sent Not his Son into the world to Condemn (Judge) The World; (Humanity) but that The World (Humanity) through him might be saved.
