We continue with "find peace of mind and calm a troubled soul" in Romans 8:23-28:

"And we Christians, although we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of a future glory, groan to be released from pain and suffering. We wait anxiously for that day when God will give us full rights as His children; including the new bodies He has promised us- bodies that will never be sick and will never die."

"We are saved by trusting. And trusting means looking forward to getting something we don't yet have. For a man who already has something doesn't need to hope and trust that he will get it. But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn't happened yet,

it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently."

"And in the same way- by our Faith- the Holy Spirit helps us with our daily problems and in our praying.

For we don't even (always) know what we should pray for, nor how to pray as we should. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with such feelings that it cannot be expressed in words."

"And the Father(God), who knows all hearts, knows of course what the Holy Spirit is saying, as He prays for us in harmony with God's will. And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good, if we love God and are fitting (obeying) into His plans."

Isaiah 53:5-7 prophesied: "He (Jesus Christ) was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him: and with His stripes we are healed."

"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all."

"He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth. He is brought as a Lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth."  Fulfilled in John 19:25.

​continued tomorrow:

Lesson 3: The Truth for man's salvation:

We are forbidden to worship the messengers of God,

the churches and their doctrines instead of God.

In Acts 14:14-15 (KJV) Paul and Barnabas stopped the people who wanted to worship them as gods:

"Then the priests of Jupiter ...brought oxen and garlands...and would have done sacrifice with the people; Which, when Barnabas and Paul heard of, they rent their clothes and ran in among the people,

crying out, Saying, sirs, why do ye do these things?

We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you, that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God. which made heaven and earth, and the sea and all things that are therein."

In Revelation 19:10 we see John about to worship a messenger angel and was forbidden to do so:

"And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, see thou do it not; I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus:

Worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy."

Leviticus 26:1 (KJV) is very clear to all: "Ye shall make ye no idols, nor graven images, neither rear you up

​a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land to bow down unto it. For I am the Lord your God. "      Amen

Proving Jesus is Christ, the Messiah continued:

God told Satan (that old serpent) about the coming of Jesus to crush him in Genesis 3:15:

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman (Israel), and between thy seed and her seed: It shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." We see this fulfilled in Galatians 4:4:

"But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman under the law."   continued tomorrow:

Proving Jesus is Christ the Messiah continued:

Isaiah prophesied in 9:6-7 of the birth of Jesus.

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace."

Fulfilled in Luke 1:26-35: "And the angel (Gabriel) said unto her, Fear not Mary: for thou hast found favor with God, and behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call His name Jesus."

"He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David."

"And He shall reign over the house of Jacob

​forever: and of His kingdom there shall be no end."    continued tomorrow:

Knowing our prayers are heard:  "And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer, and there was given to him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints ​upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand."  Revelation 8:3-4    Amen

Proving Jesus is Christ the Messiah continued:

In Psalms 118:22-23 Jesus is called the cornerstone: "The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

This is the Lord's doing and is marvelous in our eyes."

Fulfilled in Acts 4:11-12: "This is the stone (Jesus) which was set at naught of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."

​continued tomorrow:

Jesus Christ came and destroyed the works of the Devil. The curse of death and separation from God came when Satan caused Adam & Eve to sin; and the curse came upon all mankind.

Jesus suffered and died to atone for that curse and blotted it out for all that believe and accept Him. He conquered Satan, death and Hell; and shares His victory with all who believe in His resurrection from death and the grave. Jesus Christ is the entrance for mankind to return to live in Paradise. Amen

Proving Jesus is Christ, the Messiah continued:

In Luke 4:16-21 Jesus stood and read aloud Isaiah 61:1-2 in the synagogue on the sabbath day and said unto them," This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."

Isiah 61:1-2, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath anointed Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that

​are bruised." "To preach the acceptable year of the Lord."    continued tomorrow:

Lesson 5: The Truth for man's salvation:

Most of us want peace of mind and a tranquil soul.

We usually blame others or circumstances when we 

can't find them. All too often, we blame ourselves; but cannot find the answers we need.

Then we seek all kinds of escape solutions with alcohol, drugs and desperate measures trying to solve these inner problems.​​ We have to face the truth in ourselves.

When we accept the salvation of Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit of Truth becomes part of our being. This Spirit guides and directs us from within. It tells us what is right and wrong in the eyes of God; and warns us when we go in the wrong direction.

When we obey this gentle voice, the Spirit of Peace & Tranquility floods our mind and soul. When we ignore the warnings and harden our hearts; our mind takes control and does what it wants anyway. Then comes the disruption & conflict within ourselves.

We are God's children and we pay a price for disobedience. Every child of God is different and each of us has our own personalized set of rules. Some of us have the inner liberty to do things that others don't have. Then others have the inner freedom to do things

​that we ourselves are not allowed to do.

Peace of mind and tranquil soul comes by obeying the

inner, special rules of Truth the Lord designed for you.


Proving Jesus is Christ the Messiah continued:

Zechariah 9:9 prophesied: "Rejoice greatly

O daughter of Zion; shout O daughter of Jerusalem: behold thy king cometh unto thee:

He is just and having salvation; lowly and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass." Fulfilled in St. Matthew 21:1-9:

"and the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them and brought the ass, and the colt and put on them their clothes, and set Him (Jesus) thereon. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way and others cut down branches (palm limbs) and laid them in the way, saying...Hosanna

​in the highest."     continued tomorrow:

Proving Jesus is Christ the Messiah continued:

"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah."

"But Christ (Jesus) being come a high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands; that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us."

Hebrews 8:8 and 9:11-12.  continued tomorrow:




The "gifts of the Holy Spirit" are given among us through God's love for us all. We continue in

1st Corinthians 12:29-31 and 13:1-5:

"Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?

But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet I show you a more excellent way."

"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind, love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.

Does not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own way, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil."

continued tomorrow:

We continue to "find peace of mind and calm a troubled soul" in Romans 8:15-22:

"And we should not be like cringing, fearful slaves (outcasts). but we should behave like God's very own children, adopted into the bosom of His Family, and calling Him, "Father, Father". For His Holy Spirit speaks to us deep within our hearts, and tells us that we really are God's children."

"And since we are His children, we shall share His treasures- for all God gives to His Son Jesus is now ours too. But if we are to share His glory, we must also share His suffering. Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will give us later (that is coming to us)."

"For all creation is waiting patiently and hopefully for that future day., when God will resurrect (bring to life again) His children. For on that day thorns and thistles,

sin, death and decay...will all disappear, and the new world around us will share in the glorious freedom from sin which God's children enjoy."

​continued tomorrow:


"And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal; and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as the sackcloth of hair,

and the moon became as blood. And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together, and every mountain and island was moved out of their places. " 

Revelation 6:12-14     Amen

​Proving Jesus is Christ, the Messiah continued:

​Isaiah 7:14, "Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel."

St. Matthew 1:18, "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Ghost."

Also told in St. Luke 1:26-35. continued tomorrow:

Proving Jesus is Christ the Messiah continued:

​Moses commanded the blood of sacrificial lambs be placed over the dwelling entrance for Passover of the death angel in Egypt.

Even so, the blood of Jesus (Lamb) must be placed over our soul to Passover death to eternal life with Him.

In St. Luke 23:46 Jesus gave Himself into God's hand establishing the New Testament Passover:

"And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice,

He said, Father, into Thy hands I commend My spirit: and saying this, He gave up the ghost."

continued tomorrow:


"Thus speaks the Lord of Hosts, saying, Execute true judgement, and show mercy, and compassion every man to his brother."


Lesson 1: Many people are soul searching for truth concerning their salvation. This is the first of a series of lessons that Jesus taught to reveal the truth for man's salvation. In St. Luke 10:30-37 (KJV) Jesus answers the question, 'Who is my neighbor?' with the parable of the Good Samaritan.

It is a story about a traveler who is robbed, beaten and left for dead by the roadside. A priest passed by and ignored him. Then a Levite (a member of a priestly Hebrew tribe of Levi), came and looked at him and left without helping. Then a Samaritan (the Samaritans and Jews hated each other), came and cleaned up his wounds, took him to an inn and paid for his care.

Being religious in name only is not true salvation.

​Actions speak louder than words.    Amen

When our will-power fails to break "bad habits" and resist temptations; this often leads to depression.

Then the dark clouds of our mind overshadows our soul and robs us of peace and hope. So we try to use the same mind to solve these problems.

We refuse to accept the truth; that our mind allowed the formation of these "bad habits" and sought these temptations to begin with.

We need the Spiritual Power of the Lord to intercede for us. Relying on the mind that got us into trouble to start with, to get us out of trouble, can certainly lead to failure and cause depression.

When depression comes and we are overcome, we don't know what to do. We try family, friends, others

or things in desperation.

These efforts often fail because we are trying to use their will-power or man-made solutions to control our minds and will. Bad habits are evil to our mind and body and usually end up causing far more harm than the pleasures they bring.

Worldly temptations are constantly increasing in power and appeal; all designed to lure & entice us and our money. The dark forces behind the temptations are smarter and stronger than our human efforts to resist.

We need to ask  our Lord to stop the "bad habits" and overcome our temptations, by taking away the desire for them and giving us disgust for them.

​Our Lord Jesus Christ will do for us what man cannot do.     Amen

"And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works."

"And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works."

We continue our lessons on "gifts of the Holy Spirit" in

1st Corinthians 12:8-13: "To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; someone else may be be especially good at studying and teaching, and this is his gift from the same Spirit. He (the Holy Spirit) gives special faith to another and to someone else the power to heal the sick. He gives power for doing miracles to some and to others power to prophesy and preach. He gives someone else the power to know

(spiritual discernment) whether evil spirits are speaking through those who claim to be giving God's messages- whether it is really the Spirit of God speaking. Still another may be speaking in languages he never learned; and others who do not know the language either, are given power to understand

(interpret) what he is saying. It is the same and only Holy Spirit who gives all these gifts and powers, deciding which, each of us should have."

​continued tomorrow:

Lesson 4: The Truth for man's salvation:

Many people have secret doubts about their salvation because they were never formally water baptized or sprinkled. We know Jesus received water baptism and encouraged others to do so. This was in symbolic  recognition of their sins being washed away.

The spiritual baptism of the Holy Spirit is what removes our sins and births our heart for true salvation. In St. Luke 23:39-43 we read that Jesus saved the thief hanging on a cross next to him without ceremony the same day.

"And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be the Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward for our deeds; but his man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Today thou shalt be with me in paradise."    Amen

Under trial, Jesus tells high priest "I AM Christ" in St. Mark 14:60-62.

"Again the high priest asked Him (Jesus) and said unto Him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?" "And Jesus said, I AM: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power; and coming in the clouds of heaven."  ​continued tomorrow:

"Come up here and I will show you things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and behold a throne was set in heaven, and ONE sat on the throne, and He that sat was to look upon as a jasper and a sardine stone. And there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. "  Revelation 4:1-3


​Lesson 2: The truth for man's salvation.

There is no justification for schisms (separations or divisions into factions) in the body of Christ.

1st Corinthians 12:12-13 and 25 (KJV): 

"For as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have all been made to drink in one Spirit."

"That there shall be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another."

​Revelation 3:10-11       Amen

Lesson 6: The Truth for man's salvation:

Who or what is pulling the strings in your life today?

We own things and have loved ones & friends that we are tied to in some fashion. These cords of pride in ownership and cherished relationships we attach to them work both ways.

We stay connected in our efforts to control them, without realizing that they can influence and control us as well. Material things are subject to wear & tear and all too often become burdens instead of blessings.

The same is true in our relationships with others.

Sometimes our love and desire to please others, becomes stronger than our desire to love and please God. Then we lose self-control of our personal lives and the ability to guide & influence others.

​When we fail to let God control us; then the things of this world will take control of us in His place.  Amen

Lesson 7: The Truth for man's salvation:

All of us are born with a spiritual hole in our heart

where God wants to dwell. This void in our lives can only be filled and made whole by the Holy Spirit using the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Adam & Eve were made perfect and filled with the Spirit of God. Their rebellion and disobedience caused their spiritual death and all following them.

Jesus came as the second Adam to restore man with God in spiritual rebirth and all accepting him.

Nothing in and of this world can fill that void in our heart and make us whole; no matter what man tries.

The only true and pure source of spiritual life to make us complete is Jesus our Christ abiding in our heart. Without Him you are spiritually dead already. With Jesus we are reborn again for eternal life.  Amen     The end of this series of lessons.

Proving Jesus is Christ the Messiah continued:

Isaiah 53:8-11 prophesied of Jesus: "...for the transgressions of my people was He striken...yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him (Jesus).
