This new generation of worshippers is going to need a way to make sense out of "religion"/dogma and reverence for the creator (AND HIS WAYS OF CIVILIZATION AND PEACE/TRUTH).....and especially detect/distinguish the difference between truth and untruth.
The real reason God destroyed Sodom and Gemmorah is in Ezekiel 16:49 (forget the lies we have been TAUGHT for 2,000 yewars by the 666 darkness moneychanger empire).
Eze 16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
...(the darkness doesn't want us to know the truth, so the 666 moneychangers decieve us).
1Ch 29:15 We are here for only a moment, visitors and strangers in the land as our ancestors were before us. Our days on earth are like a passing shadow, gone so soon without a trace.
Why is the name “Immanuel” ignored? Was it not the decision of the Holy Spirit that the lamb of God should be IMMANUEL?
Exodus 3:14 and 15 is when Moses was told how God wants to be known (the creator doesn’t need a “NAME”, there is only one of Him), but this is His ETERNAL designation (eternal God) that sent His Spirit (Hebrew s 9:15) to purify our conscience.
Heb 9:14 how much more shall the blood of the Christ (who through the age-during Spirit did offer himself unblemished to God) PURIFY YOUR CONSCIENCE from dead works to serve the living God?.......(on the cross, Jesus only purified the flesh).
Heb 1:3 When he had made purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, ….(purification for sins is purification of THE FLESH….Heb 9:13).
What Jesus did to redeem us was FOLLOW/satisfy the jewish purification rites (sacrificing animals….”bulls and goats”)
………why don't we listen to God about the names Immanuel or I am who I am?
But the blood of bulls and goats could NOT take away sin, so God sent a LAMB.
Heb 9:13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
......Jesus fulfilled all of the righteousness of Jewish law and rabbinical teachings.
The most we know for sure about any FIRST NAME designation for the lamb of God is what Moses decided to suffer for.....
Heb 11:26 He considered abuse suffered for the Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he looked to the reward.
......He seems to be reffered to in Malachi 3 the "the SUN of rigtheousness ....Jesus's works were finished BEFORE the foundation of the earth (earlier epoch).
Deu 33:27 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee;
Even though God told Moses His desired name/destgnation for all eternityu, the truth is that the jews decided not to listen to Moses because the jews became accustomed to the pagan gods of Egypt.
“But our ancestors refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt.
They told Aaron, ‘Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who led us out of Egypt—we don’t know what has happened to him!’[fn]
That was the time they made an idol in the form of a calf. They brought sacrifices to it and reveled in what their own hands had made.
But God turned away from them and gave them over to the worship of the sun, moon and stars. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets: “ ‘Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the wilderness, people of Israel?
You have taken up the tabernacle of Molek and the star of your god Rephan, the idols you made to worship. Therefore I will send you into exile’[fn] beyond Babylon.
Act 7:44 “Our ancestors had the tabernacle of the covenant law with them in the wilderness. It had been made as God directed Moses, according to the pattern he had seen.
Act 7:39 To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,
....our time on earth is but a passing shadow....1 Chronicles 29:15.
Many sacred writings were left out of the biblical canon (accepted scriptures) like the book of Hermas (accepted by the early church) that also mentions tyhe "fulness of time" (Ephesians 1) and the "white stone",.....Revelation 2:17.'''''ALSO....
There is a lot to learn about the poor education we have received as "christians". We need to embrace the "law of liberty" James 1:25 and 2:12 in order to become FREE......there is no text to this law and it is NOT AN OPTION.....we MUST make our own decisions and be free (be like God "I am who I am").
Psa 119:45 and I shall walk at liberty, for I have sought thy precepts.
Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
Jer 34:8 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, after King Zedeki'ah had made a covenant with all the people in Jerusalem to make a proclamation of liberty to them,
Jer 34:15 You recently repented and did what was right in my eyes by proclaiming liberty, each to his neighbor, and you made a covenant before me in the house which is called by my name;
Jeremiah 34:17 Therefore, thus says the LORD: You have not obeyed me by proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother and to his neighbor; behold, I proclaim to you liberty to the sword, to pestilence, and to famine, says the LORD. I will make you a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth
Luke 4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
Romans 8:21 because the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the glorious liberty of the children of God.
James 1:25 But he who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer that forgets but a doer that acts, he shall be blessed in his doing.
James 2:12 So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty.
DEVOTION/REVERENCE to the Lord is all about FREEDOM/liberty for the people (dece3nt, civilized living and treatment of your neighbor male and female is “righteousness”………LIBERTY is a MUST for all human beings.
…..(do not ABANDON SET FREE an animal in a field,,….(that is why the word “liberty” is used instead.
Moses was a freedom fighter also, but that DIDN’T WORK OUT TOO WELL….Acts 7:39.
