INTRODUCTION

DOCTRINES OF THE LORD

One Gospel. One Character. One Doctrine

Jesus commandment in establishing and expanding His Kingdom on earth.

All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and
make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the
Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you and
lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Mt 28:18-20

The PURPOSE of this book is to EXPAND THE KINGDOM OF GOD, MAKE
DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS, TEACH THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THAT HE HAS
COMMANDED and PROMOTE UNITY and STRENGTHEN the Body of Christ. It is Gods
will that we all preach the Only One Gospel, have One Character and teach One
Doctrine. It is a clear outline presentation of the Word of God. We begin with the
Foundational Teachings- The Gospel and Salvation, the Christian Character and then
the Doctrinal Studies. Pastors, teachers and workers shall benefit from these topical
outline studies of bible truths for the edification of the church. This is an effective tool
for personal home study, group discussions, bible studies, pulpit preaching and
teaching.

It is designed in an outline form so that at a glance one can quickly get the
core of the message. At the right column are the references or the verses one can use
to expound his topic. Explanations are limited and brief statements are made so that
the teacher from the verses read will have the freedom to listen from the Spirit for
insights. Messages taught alive and not from the box give better impact to the
listeners and give the Spirit freedom to move. This makes his spiritual ear sharper
and his mouth speak only what the Spirit teaches.

And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as
evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for equipping the saints for the work
of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of
the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure
of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer be
children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine
by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in
love Eph 4:11-15

The word of God is very clear that we the servants of the Kingdom and of the
Church of Jesus Christ in these last days should be uniting, equipping, teaching,
empowering the disciples to reach their full-potential as priests and kings of the Most
High. Let us teach and live in power. We are in a Kingdom that shall not pass away
eternal in the heavens.

To Him be the highest praise forever. Amen.

THE GOSPEL OF GOD


In our time false prophets and false churches proclaim that they preach the
gospel. They teach the bible is already the good news or the gospel. It sounds right
in our ears. Indeed the gospel is the word of God but it is deceiving not to teach what
the Bible says about the Gospel. They make use of their doctrines in exchange for the
real gospel. The purpose of this study is to show from the Scripture what really the
gospel is. Paul said, But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you
another a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!
Gal 1:8. Therefore we can know what another gospel is if we know the gospel
preached by Paul and the apostles.

The gospel of God is distinguished from church doctrines. These have specific
messages. We preach the gospel to unbelievers to be saved. Rom 4:20-25, 5:17-
19,21, 1Jn 5:9,11. Once they become disciples we teach them the doctrines of the
LORD. Mt 28:19-20

The Word gospel comes from the Greek word evangelio meaning good
news. The word of God, the Scripture declares a gospel good news about the Son
of God. It is incomplete if we just say that the Scripture is the good news.
Lk 24:27, 44-47 1Pet 1:10-13 Rom 1:1-2

A. Incomplete Message
1. The Gospel Message is hidden 2Cor.4:1-5 Mt.13:19 Act 10:21-22,

2. Substitutes set of doctrines 1Thess. 2:1-4 1Tim1:7,10-11,4:1,
6:3-4 2Tim.4:1-3 2Pet.3:16, 2:1-2
3. Distorted, another gospel 2Cor.11:3-4 Gal.1:6-9
4. Faith in Christ is drawn away Col 1:5-8, 2:4-5,8 2Cor.11:3-4,13-14
Rom.16:18 Act 15:1,11 Gal. 2:11-14,
4:9-11, 2:21, 3:21, 5:4,1 Rom.3:23-26,28
5. Denial of Jesus as the Only Way .
Have to enter their church and hear only from their messenger usually the
last messenger. Have to keep Christs commandments and no Gospel
Message. To enter the kingdom is through their group. Have another message,
new book, revealed book, new doctrines, new revelation and sometimes
retains the bible but does not teach the truth and the gospel from it . They all
disregard the scriptures final authority.
2Pet.2:1-2, 20 Jde 4

B. The Complete Message
In the New Testament the order of God for salvation is the Gospel which is
Christ crucified and risen from the dead is first preached. Repentance
and faith in Christ is applied and then only then the teachings and the
doctrines of Christ are taught. Mt 28:19-20, 24:14 Mk.1:15, 13:10
Remember the words spoken by the prophets and of the Lord Jesus Christ by
His apostles. 2Pet. 3:2
The Gospel. Rom.1:1-2, 16:25-26 1Pet.1:10-11
1Cor.1:6,23,18, 2:1-2, 15:1-4,11
Lk.24:44-47 Act 14:21
21
Entrusted with the True Gospel 1Thess 2:3-4 Gal 1:6-10

And the commandments of Christ 1Thess 4:1-2 Jn.14:21,15, 15:10
1Jn.5:3 2Jn.6, 9 Act 11:26

After hearing the true gospel and responding with repentance and faith in
Christ for salvation and eternal life, the person is forgiven, saved and
indwelt by the Spirit. The Lord adds him to the church.
Eph.1:13 Rom.10:14-15 1Pet.1:9
1Cor.12:13

OBEDIENCE


Obedience determines the cause for blessings and curses. The first man failed to
enter life and blessings because of disobedience. Until now men fail to enter the
kingdom of God because of disobedience to the gospel and to His commandments.
Christians are required by God to obey His commandments by which we shall
experience His Fatherhood and Godhead. Obedience gives credibility to our faith. This
is the evidence and proof of our having a genuine faith in Christ and He being our
Lord. For without obedience faith is futile and incomplete. Our Lord Jesus Christ is not
the Savior of him who believes and not obey.

unless it is given from heaven above. Prosperity is a result of an upright living and

spirit. Prosper in relationship with men and with God. Ps 106:4-5

THE BIBLE


The Bible is the Word of God. It is the Book of books, composed of books
inspired by God, written by men He called and His Spirit moved at various times and
ages for our guidance and knowledge of Him.
2Tim 3:16 Is 34:16 Rev 19:9, 20:12

There are Four Areas of Concern we should consider why the Bible is the Word
of God:
1. Originality of the Bible.
2. Preservation of the Bible.
3. Bible Texts and Translations.
4. Canonization of the Bible.

I. ORIGINALITY OF THE BIBLE

1. The Scripture first proclaimed and revealed the Name of the True God,
YHWH(YAHWEH), the Word of God spoken and written, and
(YAHUSHUA/YESHUA) JESUS CHRIST as the Only Begotten Son of God. Any
other religions, sects or supposedly prophets that claim that have come and
sent by God but have another message and contradict the original
revelation, use Gods Name and distort the Scripture taking and adding
words from it are not from God. They are moved by either through a man
or counterfeiting spirits- the spirit of antichrist.
Ex 19:9 Deut 4:2 Lev 22:31-33
Is 40:28 Prov 30:5-6 Mt 1:20-21
Rev 19:9, 22:18-19

2. God challenges any god and any prophet who claims the truth and says he
is god, to declare the past and the future to know whether they are gods.
And if theres even one prophecy that they made and it failed, it is not from
God. There is no holy book today of any religion that has able to declare the
past, the present and the future.
Is 41:21-23, 46:9-10
Deut 18:18-22

II. PRESERVATION OF THE BIBLE

1. God gave us the Book Is 34:16-17 Mal 3:16-18 Dan 12:4, 9
Rev 22:18-19
2. He spoke the words Ex 19:9 Jer 18:1-2 Heb 1:1-2
3. God commanded it to Deut 31:24-26 Jer 30:2 Eph 3:3
be written 1Jn 1:2-4 Rev 1:11,19, 19:9
4. All Scripture is inspired 2Tim 3:16 2Pet1:20-21, 3:1-2
by God Gal 1.11-12
5. Jesus confirmed its authority Jn 5:39,46-47 Mt 22:29 Lk 4:16-21,
24:44-48
6. Jesus have teachings from God Jn 7:16-18, 8:43, 47, 12:48-49
7. His words will not pass away Is 40:8 Mt 5:18, 24:35 1Pet 1:24-25
8. Given to His apostles Jn 13.20, 17.14-20,21
99
Mt 10:40, 28:18-20
9. The apostles spoke and Mt 28:19-20 Lk 1:1-4 Mk 1:1-2
wrote them Jn 20:30-31 2Thess 2:15
2Pet 3:1-2,14-16 IJn1:1-4
Rev1:1-3, 10-11, 19, 14:13,
19:9, 22:9,18-19
10. God keeps and preserves it Ps 12.:6-7, 102:18, 119:89 Is 34:16
Dan 12:4, 9 Mt 24:35 Rev 22:18-19

The Bible is now in almost all languages and God desires that all men should
come to know His words. The present English translations from the Old
Testament Hebrew and the New Testament Greek show continuous and
harmonious messages. It was not corrupted nor adulterated by outside
elements. The Old and New Testament Manuscripts 24,000 of them discovered
at different times and different locations are all pointing to the same copy
we have now proving the originality and preservation from their source and
content. Therefore having the OT Hebrew and the NT Greek Translations where
it was originally written we can now based all bibles translated today to
different languages.

III. CANONIZATION OF THE BIBLE

Canonization is the process of selection and elimination which of the books are
the inspired word of God written to us. The basis of authority and process the
early church fathers used and Christian leaders today both agree that what
we have now is the inspired word of God. The manner and process are found
in the Scripture itself.

A. The Basis for Canonization :
1. The Witness of the Holy Spirit.
Genuine believers have the Holy Jn 16:13 1Cor 2:12-16 1Jn 2:27
Spirit dwelling in them guiding them Jer 31:33-34 Ezek 36:27
into all the truth. No one knows the
deep things of God except the Spirit
of God who reveals them to His
101
people.
2. Apostolic Origin.
The writings and teachings should Mt 10:40 Jn 5:39,13:20 Act 16:4-5
originate from the apostles and the Eph 3.3-5 2Pet 3:1-2, 14-16
prophets themselves both confirming 1Jn 1:1-4 Rev 1:11
their messages.
3. Reception of the Early Church. Is 8:20, 34:16
Churches from the 1
st
Century to the 1Thess 2:13, 5:27 Col 4:15-16
4
th
Century accept the Bible both the Act 16:4-5
Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek
New Testament.
4. Consistency of Doctrine.
It is generally accepted that teachings 2Tim 3:16 1Cor 4:6, 11:1
from the writings or letters in the New Jn 3:34 2Tim 3:10 2Jn 9-10
Testament should not contradict the
Old Testament prophecies, the Truth
and of the Words of our Lord Jesus
Christ.
5. Dynamic Power.
It changes the heart, soul and spirit. Heb 4:12 Jn 6:63 1Cor 2:1-5
1Thess 1:5

B. Procedure for Canonization :
1. Selecting Procedure

GOD


We have a great God. In this study we shall know that God truly reveals Himself.
He is not an unmindful God but One who is there always for us. He shows us from the
Scriptures His Godhead, His character, who He is to us, His nature and attributes.

I THE EVIDENCE OF GOD
What is the evidence of God?
Evidence by His creation Rom. 1:19-20
Evidence by His Spirit Jn.16:8-13
Evidence by His Word 1Sam 3:7, 21

A. Evidence by His Creation Rom. 1:19-20
The Testimony of Cause and Effect
The Testimony of Design
The Testimony of Order

1. The Testimony of Cause and Effect
A man walking in a thick forest finds a watch on the ground. He may not
believe that nature (the effect) was brought through by a Creator (the
Cause). But he believes that the watch didnt come from nothing but
someone made it and has dropped it on the ground. In the same way the
earth, the sun the stars, the galaxies and man was brought through by a
Creator-powerful than himself. He can make a watch but he cannot make
a universe. The LORD is the cause of all these things.
Is. 43:13 Jer. 1:12 Ezek. 12:28

He created by His word. Ps. 33:6,9, 148:5 Is. 14:24,27, 55:11
Through His Son Jesus Christ Jn. 1:3,10 Col 1:16 1Cor. 8:6
Prov. 30:4, 8:22-31 Rev. 3:14

2. The Testimony of Design
A watch cannot work on its own. There was a mind - an agency behind its
creation. Every part brilliantly put together, working as planned and to
suit a purposegive us the time. God is the Genius, Brilliant Designer of the
whole universe. We can see the glory and vastness of the universe together
with its different heavenly bodies. We can discover the anatomy of man and
how each member of his body functions perfectly. Man is a brilliant
engineering. We can see the Designer from the universe to the tiny cells of
the body of human beings. We can both be loss to its complexities and
diverse functions. Only a God can design this awesome creation.

Consider the Facts:
a) There are hundreds of billions of stars in about hundreds of
billions of galaxies. Each is trillion light years away from each other.
God stretched the heavens. Ps. 104:1-2 Jer. 10:12
b) The bio-chemical complexities and anatomy of man . We have
about 55 trillion cells in our body if well have a trip in one tiny cell
well get lost in the numerous chemical and energy reactions.
113
c) Our DNA alone speaks of a Great and Genius Designer. These are
long molecules where proteins get information out from it. The
physiological and biological characteristics of a person are brought by
it.
d) The brain is so powerful that is cant be match by all computers of
the world combined.
e) The heart is the only machine in the world that never stops. It
pumps the blood and flows throughout the whole body.
f) The nervous system is greatly design that makes the human body
works harmoniously and with precise.
g) Our kidney cleanses our body from all toxins.

David said for you formed my inward parts; you wove me in my
mothers womb, I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and
wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it
very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made
in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
Ps. 139:13-15

Indeed, from an Intelligent Designer, no sudden chance or
accident can bring this design on its own, its far from possibility. Its
impossible.

3. The Testimony of Order
The watch again can be compared from its creation to its wonderful
design and finally its order. Every part of the watch is functioning as it
planned but if one part misses it will disrupt all the system within it. The
evidence of order is evident in creation; we have natural laws that are
placed in our world. Gravity makes the universe move in its place. The sun
gives enough light to earth. The earth is in its exact pace in the solar system
were life is possible and sustainable. Disruption of this order even an error of
its movement will have a devastating effect on the whole system.

The biochemical and anatomy of man is so complex that a malfunction of
one tiny cell can cause its death. The regulation of the blood and body
fluids that flows through our veins if not maintained can cause complications
and even death.

The balance of nature is so important that if a single atom moves out of
its way, an organ of the body stops functioning as designed. A star moves
out of its orbit there would be a great havoc to mankind if not destruction of
the world. Order is therefore from God. An explosion is destruction, this
dismisses the Big Bang Theorythis theory even defies science and its laws.
But God is a God of order. He indeed has set the order.
1Cor. 14:33,40, 15:38-41,23

B. Evidence By His Spirit Jn 16.8-13
God is a living and life-giving Spirit. He moves over all His creation. He
is the Most-high, the Sovereign, the Ruler, the King , and the Judge. His
Spirit is not seen by the naked eye. Since man is also a spiritual being
having a soul, body and spirit, God has been able to move on man in his
spirit. The witness of the Spirit and power of God is the evidence of His
existence whenever His word is spoken by Hs real servants. Convictions of
114
sins among sinners and peace and calm for the repentant worshipping
believer. The Holy Spirit guides believers into all the truth and it is
the same Spirit that confirms the word of God with signs, wonders,
miracles, healings, and deliverances. The Spirit of God changes mans
heart.
Acts 10:38 Heb. 2:4

C. Evidence By His Word 1 Sam. 3:7,21
Human beings know each other through their words and actions and by
these we often times base our actions and reactions. God in the same
manner is known by His words- and these words fulfill the purpose for which
it was sent. The scripture is the written word of God which delineates divine
counsel and will. It shows us the true character and attributes of God
His deeds with man and how He works with him. It depicts Gods
way and makes known the truth and exposes error and fallacy. What are
Gods thoughts and what are not, what is human and what is Divine. It is
the only book that claims its the word of God more than 3,000 times. The
word of God explicitly states that a prophecy (word) that is from God the
speaker shall be able to declare whats in the past and tell what is to
come. Not a word fail is the firm basis for it to be from God. For only
God can absolutely declare whats has gone and what is coming.

The Bible is impeccable and unstained in declaring the past and the
future. Hundreds of prophecies have been fulfilled and there is no book for
thousands of years that has equaled Bible prophecies and has not failed. God
cannot err so does His word.
Is. 41:21-23 Jn. 14:29

THE LORD
(YHWH/YAHWEH)


Do you know the LORD? His majesty, attributes and acts tell us who He is. The
devil has given the world a wrong concept of God. But His word and His acts declare
He is loving, mindful, caring righteous, just and good. He is the Self-Existing
One(YAHWEH), the I AM(HYH Ehyeh).

YAHWEH(LORD) is the Name of God(ELOHIM) He revealed to Moses, the
Israelites and the prophets. That is His Name forever, a memorial- Name to all
generations. Ex 3:15 Ps 102:12

Sing to God whose Name is YAH Ps 68:4
YAH may dwell there Ps 68:18
Praise YAH (HalleluYAH) Ps 104:35
The dead do not praise YAH, Ps 115:17
But as for us, we will bless YAH, Ps 115:18
From this time forth and forever.
Praise Yah!
Let everything that has breath praise YAH. Ps 150:6
YAH is my salvation Is 12:2
I said, I will not see YAH, Is 38:11
YAH in the land of the living;
In that day, He shall be King over all the earth, Zech 14:9
the Only One, His Name the Only One
The Name of both the Father and the Son, Prov 30:4 Rev 14:1

IV. CREATION DECLARATION
Creation declares the glory and power and existence of God. The grandeur and
marvel of creation, its perfect unity, order, diversity, and glory speak of its
Creator.
Ps. 8:1,19:1-4 Jb 12:7-10 Jb 38 to 39
Jer. 5:21-24, 10:12, 31:35-36 Rom. 1:20

A. The Glory of Creation
Scripture says that creation differs in its glory for they have different types of
bodies. 1Cor. 15:39-40

1. The glory of heavenly bodies and earthly bodies.
2. The glory of the sun, the stars and the moon
3. Flesh of man , flesh of the beasts, the birds and the fish

Consider the Glory of Creation
1. The Glory of Heavenly Bodies and the Earthly Bodies
a. Amazing sight in space. The nebular moves around the galaxy.
Hydrogen gas and dust illuminates by starlight in great colors.
b. Our earth belongs to a solar system with planets which revolved
around the sun.
c. The solar system belongs to a galaxy the Milky Way wherein it
contains 200 hundred billions of stars orbiting on its center.
d. And there are hundreds of billions of galaxies out there bigger and
greater than ours.
e. Just imagine the vastness of the universe.
It takes the speed of light to reach these bodies
- 1 light year-186,324 miles per second (300mln meters/second)
- 1 light year- 5.8 trillion miles traveled
If well travel to the space by light years it will take
- 1.3 second to reach the moon
- 8 minutes to reach sun (93,000,000 miles away)
- 5 minutes to reach the Pluto
151
- were out of the Solar System at 3.5 Billion miles at one day
- 4.5 light year were at the nearest star Alpha Centauri
(26 trillion miles away)
- there are 200 billions of stars in our galaxy
- 100,000 light years, we can now see our own galaxy
- 5 million light years, you can see cluster of galaxies,
our local group.
- 50 million light years, the Virgo cluster compose of 2,000
galaxies
- I billion to 10 billion light years clusters upon cluster of galaxies
- At 10 billion light years youll see a view of countless clusters of
hundreds of billion of galaxies
f. Take the orbit of the Sun on our Galaxy at 130 miles per second; it
will take 200 million years for 1 orbit. It could orbit 20 times in 4
billion years.
g. The earth is like a speck of dust in our galaxya tiny dot in the
Milky Way. It is 25,000 light years from the center and our galaxy
is 100 million light years across.
h. Gas, dust and stars rotates like carousel at 9,000 miles per
minute. Each stars distance at trillion of miles.
The Scripture confirms the glory and vastness of the universe.
The heavens are telling the glory of God, and their expanse is
declaring the work of His hands. Ps. 19:1

And our God is so great.
O LORD my God, You are very great
stretching out heaven like a tent curtain.
Ps. 104:1-2 Is. 48:13
Jer. 10:12 Jb. 9:7-10

How man can be insignificant but not to God. As high is the heaven from
the earth and as far as the east from the west He has removed our
transgression from us and has been mindful of us.
Ps. 103:11-14

2. Glory of the Sun, the Stars and the Moon and the Planets
a. The Sun is 93,000,000 miles away from the earth, 865,400 miles in
diameter and 1,300,000 times bigger than the earth, weighs 1.980
in quintillion tons. Temperature surface is 12,000 degrees F. Center
is 40,000,000 degrees F. Flames shoots up from 25,000 to 500,000
miles. It is composed of hydrogen, calcium, sodium, magnesium
and iron. Its force of gravity is 28 times that of earth. Its energy
the flames that shoots up can last billion of years for power.
b. The Stars
Stars differ in each glory. These are giant stars such as Antares 390
million miles in diameter and Epsilon Aurigae 2.4 Billion miles in
diameter. The heaviest star could weigh 6,000 million million
million tons. This is 100 times heavier than our sun.
There are different kinds of stars and all are astounding.
We have the pulsars, quasars and the black hole.
The pulsars beams ultra violet rays.
The quasars are 1,000 times brighter than the sun.
The suns light of 10 million years is emitted per second.
152
The black hole said of a dead star, running out of fuel bursts and
because of a strong gravitational pull the star nearest is deformed
even its light is trapped-in and nothing escapes.

c. The planets and the moon.
The planets we have on our solar system revolve around the sun.
The planets we have are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter,
Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto. All these planets differ in glory from
each other. With all the shining and vivid colors in space make a
marvelous sight. The moon gives light to earth at night. There is
darkness when eclipse occur. At full-moon its sight is amazing.

3. Flesh of man, flesh of beast, the birds and the fish.
Each group of living things on earth including the plants has each
own characteristics and diversities which adapts to their living
condition in land, sea and air.
a. Consider the anatomy of man
How marvelous is its work, perfect engineering and beyond
comparison. Ps. 139:13-16
The brain system we have is so powerful that no computer in the
entire world combined can equal.
b. Consider the animal kingdom
The mere sight of them, the cycle of life, habitat, existence, balance
of nature and its relations declare a Creator. They can be
tamed and trained by man as God decreed.
Gen 1:26 Jer. 8:7 Is. 1:3
Prov. 6:6-8
c. Consider the fowls
There are hundreds of species of birds. They are different from
each other in color, size, and the sounds they make. There is
wonder in their flight and flocking together.

d. Consider the fish in the deep. Ps. 107:23-24
An adventure in the deep sea is overwhelming and marvelous.
Fish of all kinds, colors, and shapes are really amazing. The
plants and the corals below add to its glory. Watching them with
the naked eyes, knowing their life and habitat and relation with
each other speak of a Creator. With all of these truly God is
declared.

For since the creation of the world His invisible, attributes, His
eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being
understood through what has been made, so that they are without
excuse. Rom. 1:20

MAN


Man is made in the image and likeness of God. This image is found chiefly in
mans moral nature and ability to rule (Gen. 1:26-27, 9:6 Eccl. 7:29 Ps. 8:3-8). He
created male and female (Gen. 5:1-2, 9:6). Man was the first created and the woman
taken from him (Gen. 2:21-23 1Cor. 11:8,11-12 1Tim.2:13). He is given the power
to dominate the earth, inhabit and rule it (Gen 1:26) Man being limited, we must not
lay our full trust (Ps. 62:9, 146. 3,4 Jer 17:5, 10:23). Trust, hope and rely on God
His Maker (Isa 30:1-2, 31:1).

ELECTION


I. WHAT IS ELECTION?

A. What it is not?
There is a group in Christianity that started in the Reformation days that
teaches that since man is sinful and cannot save himself and is already
condemned therefore God made a choice among them, sent Christ to die
only for them, caused them to believe and be saved, called them His own
and shall be glorified in the last days while the rest of mankind He also called
to repent and believe in the gospel but will not cause them to believe and be
saved. This teaching shows a lot of contradictions and inconsistencies on the
desire of God for all men to be saved and gave the Son as a ransom for all
so that the world might be saved through Him and whoever believes is saved
and whoever disbelieves is condemned. What this group teaches is a gospel
of selection and not a gospel of salvation through Christs atonement and
faith in Him.

The verses they hold are:
1) Rom 3:10-18 No one is righteous so God has to choose and cause
them to believe.
2) Act 11:18 Repentance was granted by God.
3) Act 13:48 Those appointed to life believed.
4) Rom 9:11-13 Gods purpose according to His choice would stand.

In context Rom 3 shows man is sinful and verses 22-26 say for all have
sinned and fall short of the glory of God so that His righteousness be given
to those who have faith in Jesus from whom is our redemption. Act 11:17
the Holy Spirit was given after they have believed the Lord Jesus. And to
them was granted repentance. Act 13:48 those appointed believed were
alluded to those who gladly received the Word preached contrary to those
who were against the words of the apostles found in verses 44-47. And
finally in Rom 9 Paul was talking of Gods purposes in the lives of Jacob,
Moses as vessels for His use and Esau and Pharaoh as vessels for another
use. They were chosen for a purpose and Paul was not talking of salvation of
the soul here. But if we move down the verses salvation came in when Israel
who were Gods chosen people did not enter because of their choice of
unbelief and the Gentiles entered because of their faith in Christ.

B. What is it?

ELECTION THEREFORE IS HE CHOSE US IN CHRIST

Paul was very clear who God has chosen and predestined. God has chosen a
group of people. Those whom He foreknew He predestined. Rom 8:29. God
knew His people in Christ beforehand. They are His People in Christ. He has
chosen them and predestined them. Eph 1:4 says He chose us in Christ take
note in Christ before the foundation of the world. The basis and point of
reference in choosing is that we are in Christ. We are chosen because of Him
and we are in Him positionally. No one is chosen outside Christ. The verse says
166
He chose us in Christ. God in His foreknowledge sends His Son- His Chosen
One to make atonement for mans sin and this is applied to those who shall be
in Christ through faith which is Gods declared righteousness foreseeing that
God shall justify the Gentiles by faith. Rom 10:4 Gal 3:8. Election is not God
choosing some people and sending Christ to die for them and put them in
Christ giving them the ability to believe and to be saved rather He chose those
in Christ through His foreknowledge they who have received the word gladly
and have believed.

Rom 8:29-30, 11:2

1Pet 1:1-3 Eph 1:4-5, 11


C. Types of Election
1. Chosen for salvation in Christ 2Thess 2:12-14 Rom 9:30-33,
through faith in Him 11:7, 20 1Pet 2:6-10 Gal 3:6-14,
21-26
2. Chosen to be holy and blameless Eph 1:4 Col 3:12
3. Chosen to bear fruit Jn 15:16
4. Chosen as an instrument Act 9:15 Rom 9:11-21
5. Chosen to witness Christ Act 10:39-41


II. CENTERED AND CONDITIONED UPON CHRIST

Election is through Him and in Him.
Did God not consider anything when He made the election and predestination?
Why did He predestine the believers and for what? Was not everything
centered and conditioned upon His Son for whom and through whom are all
things? The Christ from whom the heavens and the earth, principalities and
powers should give glory into and confess as the Lord. Can and will God save
man without Christ? What is His purpose of predestination? For us to be
conformed to the image of His Son and glorified with Him. How then He too
accomplishes this election in time, our calling, justification, sanctification and
glorification? Therefore who are these people whom He foreknew before the
foundation of the world? How were they justified and made righteous?

A. Basic Elements in Gods act of election and predestination

1. His election according to the pleasure and counsel of His will centered
and conditioned upon Christ.
Eph 1:4-5, 9, 11

God made a choice according to the pleasure and counsel of His will. The
choice was Gods. It was perfect, holy and just. He acted in righteousness.
In His pleasure and counsel and will Christ was at the center. Through Him
we are made holy, adopted, purchased by God and predestined.
It is because Christ is the Chosen One therefore election is centered and
conditioned upon Him and faith in Him. Lk 9:35 Mt 12:18, 21
2. His election according to His Foreknowledge centered and conditioned
upon Christ.
Rom 8:29-30 1Pet 1:1-3, 7-11
1Pet 2:6-10


167
God knew His People beforehand even before they were created. He
predestined them to be conform to the image of His Son. They were set
apart by the sanctifying work of the Spirit of God in order to obey Christ
and washed by His blood. The Holy Spirit works in them, cleanses them,
washes them and moves them into obedience in Christ.

3. His election for salvation through the sanctification of the Spirit and
belief in the truth centered and conditioned upon Christ.

2Thess 2:13 2Jn1 1Pet 1:20-23


God chose us for salvation and this is realized through the work of His
Spirit and our belief in the truth. His election in the beginning foreseeing
the working of the Spirit in the sinner and he putting his faith upon Christ
through the power of the gospel. God knowing their hearts giving them the
Holy Spirit and were cleansed through faith in Christ.


B. Foreordained in Christ

1. The Crucifixion of Christ foreordained

The Foreordained Christ crucified
Without the crucified Christ there shall be no election because election is in
Christ.

God foreordained that Christ shall die for the sins of all humanity, pay for
the sin of the whole world and atone for our iniquities and shall rise again
for our life and justification. God through Christ reconciled the world to
Himself thereby salvation is given as a free gift to be received through faith
in Jesus. With these foreknowledge and foreordination is the revelation of
the work of Christ through the preaching of the gospel- the power of God
whereby man can repent and believe in Christ and be saved. Those who
believed become in Christ and were chosen.
Eph 1:4,12-13 Gen 3:15 1Pet 1:18-21

Christs Death and Resurrection Rev 13:8 Is 53:6 Jn 1:29 Jn 3:16-18
Lk 24:44-48 2Cor 5:19-21

The promise made to Abraham Gen 22:18 Gal 3:8, 14


2. Justification and Righteousness in Christ foreordained

Gods election and predestination are all CENTERED AND CONDITIONED on
the sacrifice of Christ and through Him is justification and
righteousness.

Christ died for our sins and is the source of salvation and redemption for all
people. He has become our justification and righteousness. Since we all
have sinned and come short of the glory of God He also foreordained that
man shall be justified through Christ. He is the righteousness of God.
Rom 4:25 Rom 5:9, 15-19 1Cor 1:30 Gal 2:21

168
Faith in Christ foreordained
Through faith in Christ we become in Christ by His power.
Gen 15:6 Gen 22:18 Gal 3:6-9 Gal 3:16-18,22

Justification and Righteousness through faith in Christ

Christ is our justification and righteousness. Through faith in Him through
the gospel were all foreseen and foreordained by God for mans
justification and righteousness.
Rom 3:21-26 Rom 10:4 Phil 3:9 Acts 15:7-9
2Thess 2:13-14 Tit 3:4-8 Rom 11:32 Gal 3:22

Which Israel rejected and had fallen Rom 9:6-18, 30-33 Rom 10:1-4
Rom 11:20


III. GOD'S PREDETERMINED PLAN AND FOREKNOWLEDGE

A. Christ will die for mans sin Act 2:23 Is 53:4-6 Jn 1:29
1Pet 1:20-23

B. We are sanctified and justified Act 26:17-18 2Thess 2:12-
by faith 14 Rom 3:21-26 Gal 3:8-9

Declaration from the Scriptures:

1. It did not all begin in election. God's foreknowledge PRECEDES election.
Rom 8:29 1Pet 1:1-3, 7-12,
23-25, 2:6-10 Act 3:18-21

2. God FOREKNEW WHAT? God in the ancient days made a choice that the
Gentiles WOULD hear and believe. He KNEW the hearts and sanctified them
by FAITH. And He knew those who would not believe.
Act 15:7-9 Jn 6:63-65

3. The Scriptures FORESEEN the GENTILES be justified by FAITH.
Gal 3:8-9, 2:16 Rom 5:1-2

4. Faith in Christ should not be put in bad context and making it appear
that because we believe then we therefore made God choose us BECAUSE
we believe while Jesus said IT IS THE WORK OF GOD and God honors it
and declared as His RIGHTEOUSNESS. Satan hates faith in Christ.
Jn 6:27-29 Rom 4:6, 10:4

5. We BELIEVE because of God's power working through the GOSPEL AND
THE HOLY SPIRIT. We cannot believe without it. This is how God works.
Rom 1:16-17 1Cor 1:18-21
1Cor 15:1-2 Lk 7:46-50
1Tim 1:15-16 Jn 16:7-9

169
6. Those who disbelieved are condemned not because God did not choose
them to believe and not because God did not give them the ability to
believe but by their own volition disbelieved God, His Word and His Christ.
Jn 3:16-21 2Thess 2:12-14
1Pet 2:6-10

C. Who are Gods Elect then? Eph 1:4 2Jn 1

1. Those who believed the gospel.
Paul wrote He chose us to the believers in Ephesus. Who are they?
They are those who believed the gospel after listening to the message of
truth.
Eph 1:13 1Pet 1:1-2,7-11
1Pet 2:6-10

2. The Elect and the Apostates

The Elect are the believers in Christ whose names are written in the Book
of Life of the Lamb from the foundation of the world, who bear fruits, never
turn their backs and give glory to God. They are saved forever.

The Apostates are those who believed in Christ, were in the faith and after
a while turned their backs, denied the Lord, continued in sinning and
turned to another gospel or doctrine. They are condemned.
Rev 13:8

Rev 3:1-6

2Tim 2:10-19

ISRAEL


Israel was the chosen people of God. She began from Abraham and to his
children which gave birth to a nation. They were entrusted with the Word of God, the
First Covenant and the Law of God - The Ten Commandments. Through whom He

the humanity of Christ came. Christ will also return for a remnant from Israel with
His people the Church.

THE LAW AND THE COVENANTS


The Law of God and the Old Covenant was given to His people Israel. It showed
and guided them how to live righteously before God. It was a covenant that God
made with Israel that they should obey His commandments and therefore blessings
shall come. But Israel broke the covenant. God now had a new covenant. He will write
His Laws in our hearts. He will cause His Spirit to dwell in us so we can now obey
Him. This was made possible when Christ was sent, died, resurrected and freed us
from our sins and redeemed us from the requirements of the Law.

I. WHAT IS THE LAW
Gods law exists and is settled in heaven Gen. 26:5 Ps. 119:89,160
Is. 40:8 Mt. 24:35
A. The Law of Moses
Given to Israel and has 3 parts: Deut. 5:1-3 Ps. 147:19,20
1Kngs 2:3
1. Ethical law. The commandments Ex. 20:1-6
expressing the righteousness will
of God
2. Civil law. The judgments governing Ex. 21 to 24:11
the social life of Israel
3. Ritual law. The ordinances governing Ex. 24:12, 31:18
the religious life of Israel

B. Wholeness and Unity of the Law
1. commandments and ordinances were Deut. 6:25 Ps 18:20-24, 32:1-2
complete and inseparable whole. One Neh. 10:29 Ezek. 45:17
is blameless when he makes a Lk 1:6 Phil. 3:6
reconciliation by bringing the required
offering
2. the law refers to all the Deut. 4:2, 5:1,29,31-32
2Kngs 17:13
commandments, judgments and Mal 4:4 Mt 22:36 Lk. 1:6
1Cor. 14:21
ordinances given through Moses Gal. 5:1-3
to the Israelites.

C. The Ten Commandments
The Ten Commandments is the first Deut. 4:13
covenant.
God made an agreement with the Ex 24:1-12
people Israel and it is embodied in
this Ten Commandments.

The Covenant Was: Ex 20:1-17
1. I am the LORD your God. You shall have no other gods before me.
2. You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in
heaven above or on earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You
shall not worship them nor serve them.
3. You shall not take the Name of the LORD your God in vain.
175
4. Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy.
5. Honor your father and your mother.
6. You shall not murder.
7. You shall not commit adultery.
8. You shall not steal.
9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10. You shall not covet your neighbors house, you shall not covet your
neighbors wife or his male servant or his female servant or his donkey or
anything that belong to your neighbor.

Also is the fulfillment of the love Gal. 6:2
of Christ in the New Testament
Through the Spirit in the New Jer 31:31-33 Ezek 36:26-27
Covenant Rom 8:1-2, 4

IV. THE LAW & THE COVENANTS
A covenant is ordained for redemption of His people. Ps 111:9
God made Two Covenants: The First Covenant and Heb 8:7, 13
Second Covenant which is everlasting and the last. Heb 8:8-10
God made a new covenant when the old was broken. Jer 31:31-34

A. The Old Covenant
1. The Old Covenant was the
Ten Commandments Deut 4:13 Heb 8:13, 9:1
Made to Israel Deut 4:1-10, 5:2-3 Jer 11:4-5
2. The Old Covenant was not perfect Heb 8: 7-9, 13
Those who offer are not perfect Heb 7:19-28
The offering is not perfect Heb 9:9, 12,10:1-6
a. Cannot take away sins Heb 10:3-4, 11
b. Cannot make perfect the believer Heb 7:19, 9:9-10, 10:1-2

B. The New Covenant
The New Covenant is the Last Everlasting Is 55:3 Jer 32:40, 50:5
Ezek 37:26
Covenant of God to His People Heb 13:20
He promised a Redeemer Is 59:21, 20
1. The New Covenant is:
Hell put His Laws in their hearts and Heb 8:10-13 Jer 31:31-34
minds, Hell be their God and theyll
be His people, All will know the Lord.
Remember their sins no more.
The ministry of the Spirit in us. 2 Cor 3: 2-6, 7-8, 16-18 Phil 3:3
Hell put His Spirit in us. Is 59:21 Ezek 36:26-27
Eph 1:13 1Thess 4:8
2. The New Covenant is perfect
The Spirit of God made the offer to Heb 9:14
God Himself, making it perfect.
Christ, the Son of God was the perfect Heb 2:9-11, 7:26-28, 9:14,
Offering. 10:10, 14, 18
177
The Blood of the Covenant and Mt 26:28 Lk 22:19-20 Heb 9:16
His Death
Christ is the Guarantee and Mediator Heb 7:22, 24, 8:6, 9:15
of the New Covenant
a. Took away our sins and there is Heb 8:10,12, 10:11-12, 16-17,
forgiveness now 9:26 Rom 11:27
b. Makes the believer perfect Heb 9:11-12, 14, 10:1, 10,14
c. Makes the believer righteous, Is 59:21 Jer 31:31-34, 32:40
the Spirit dwelling Ezek 36:26-27 Heb 8:10, 10:16
Israel broke the first covenant Ps 78:10, 17, 21-22
Its dangerous not to heed and Heb 2:1-4, 10:26-31, 36-39
transgress against the new covenant.

C. The Two Covenants
1. In the Old Covenant Israel was under Rom 6:14 Jn 1:17
the law but in the new covenant we
are under grace.
2. In the Old the letters were engraved 2Cor 3:2-3, 7-8
in the stones, in the New it is written
by the Spirit of the God in our hearts,
and the letter kills, the Spirit gives life.
3. In the New Covenant the person 2Cor 5:17 1Cor 6:17,15
becomes a new creation in Christ Rom 2:29
inwardly.
4. God reveals His covenant to him Ps 25:14 Gen 6:8-9, 17-18, 17:1-7
who fears Him and believes the Act 10:1-6, 24-47
gospel.

D. Understanding the Two Covenants
Covenants are enacted through blood Heb 9:15-21 Lk 22:20 Mt 26:28
1. The First Covenant - Deut 4:13 Ex 24:1-12, 20:1-17
(The 10 Commandments)
God had an agreement with Israel to
obey the covenant but they broke it Ps 78:10 Jer 11:1-8, 22:9, 31:32
So God promised a New Covenant Jer 31:31-34
It was made when they broke the Heb 8:8-10
first covenant
2. The New Covenant
Why a new covenant?
He found fault with the First Covenant: Heb 8:7
a. They broke it Heb 8:8-9
b. those who offer were not perfect Heb 7:19-28
c. the offerings were not perfect Heb 9:9, 12, 10:1-6
d. cannot take away sins Heb 10:3-4, 11 (Jn 1:29)
e. cannot make perfect the believer Heb 7:19, 9:9-10, 10:11-12
f. the Law is not of faith Gal 3:12 Rom 9:31-32
g. Law is spiritual, we of the flesh Rom 7:14
h. brings enmity between Jews Eph 2:15
and Gentiles
i. weak Rom 8:3 Heb 7:18
j. cannot set free Act 13:39
k. power of sin 1Cor 15:56
l. brings death 2Cor 3:3, 6-7 Rom 7:9-13
178
m. brings wrath Rom 4:15
n. brings curse Gal 3:10

In the New Covenant God will write the Law in the hearts of the believer and
not on the tabletof stones unlike the first covenant so we by the Spirit the
requirement of the Law may be fulfilled in us.
Rom 8:1-2, 4 , 7:14 2Cor 3:3-7

In the new Covenant through the Spirit we reap eternal life Gal 6:7-8

The Abrahamic Covenant
The New Covenant was the Covenant /Promise God first made to Abraham
and that inheritance shall be received through faith and not through the Law.
The Law 430 years later was given because of transgression.
Gal 3:16-19

That is why Jews and Gentiles benefit from the New Covenant:
a. Promised made to Abraham all nations Gen 22:18
shall be blessed
b. Through His seed which is Christ Gal 3:12-14
c. Jews and Gentiles are now one body, Eph 2:11-13
one new man Gal 3:28
d. The Law written in their hearts 2Cor 3:2-3, 7-8
e. They are now a people of God and Yahweh
their God Rom 10:19-20
f. Their sins are remembered no more Act 13:38-39
Jn 1:29 1Jn 2:2
The Law came through Moses but grace and
truth came through Christ Jn 1:16-17

Therefore the First Covenant was the Law of Moses and the New Covenant was
the Promise God made earlier to Abraham that Inheritance- that is salvation,
forgiveness and redemption for all men, all nations, Jews and Gentiles shall be
through faith in His Son Jesus Christ. Gen 22:18

3. How the New Covenant is Effected
a. Christ the seed of Abraham is the Heb 9:15 Dan 9:24-25
mediator
b. Christ has to come, suffer and die first 1Pet 1:10-11 Heb 9:15-16
c. Christs blood has to be shed Mt 26:28
d. Christ has to resurrect from the dead 1Pet 1:3 1Cor 15:20-23

3. Differences of the Two Covenants:

First Covenant : New Covenant :
set aside Heb 7:18 came after the Law Heb 7:28
old covenant 2Cor 3:14 new covenant Heb 9:15
Lk 22:20
former commandment Heb 7:18-19 second covenant Heb 8:7,6
obsolete Heb 8:13, 8-9 everlasting covenant Ezek 32:40
canceled Col 2:14 more excellent ministry Heb 8:6
taken out of the way Col 2:14 better covenant Heb 8:6, 7:22
nailed to the cross Col 2:14 better hope Heb 7:19
179

broken down Eph 2:15
put to death Eph 2:16

191
III. RIGHT NEW BIRTH
Jn 3.3,5 Speaks of being born again, born of water and Spirit.

A. What is it?
Being born again is to be born into the family of God. It is a spiritual act of
God the Father through the Holy Spirit and His word. As one hears the gospel,
repents and puts his faith in His Son, he is born spiritually.
Act 15.7-9 1Pet 1:23-25
Gal 3:1-2, 26 2Thess 2.13-14

1. Being born of water is being born Jn 3.5 Js 1.18 1Pet 1.23
through water (spiritual) by Eph 1.13
preaching of the gospel.
2. It is not physical water but the word of Eph 5.26 Tit 3.5 Jn 6.63, 15.3
God working through the Holy Spirit 1Cor 6.11
who washes the repentant believer
through the gospel and cleanses him.
It is spiritual cleansing or washing.
An immaterial cannot be brought
forth by a material.
3. The living water is spoken of the Holy Jn 7.38-39
Spirit.
4. The Spirit refers to being born of and by Jn 3.5-8, 1.12-13
the Spirit of God and is spiritual birth.
5. It is regeneration and renewal by the Act 26.18 Col 3:10-11
Holy Spirit. Tit 3.5 1Pet 1.2-3 Rom 15.16
2Thess 2.13-14 1Cor 6:11,17
6. We become children of God, adopted Jn 1.12-13 1Jn 3.1 Eph 1.5
sons Rom 8.23 Gal 3.26

Therefor, regeneration is new birth, being born
again, born of the Spirit, born from Above,
born of God Jn 3:3-8 1Jn 5:1
Born again is being born as a child of God
through faith in Christ Jn 1.12-13, 12:36 Gal 3:1-2,26

B. What it is not?
1. It is not baptism.
Baptism buries us with Christ Rom 6.3-8
2. Believers experience new birth even Eph 1.13-14, Tit 3.5
before baptism 2Thess 2.13-14
Act 10.43-48, 11.14-18, 15.7-11

C. The RIGHT ORDER of being born-again:
Lacking these is not genuine new birth:
1. Gospel of Christ first preached and Mk 1. 15 1Cor 15.1-4, 11, 1.17-
heard, the Son of Gods finished work of 18, 23 Js 1.18
salvation.
(Teaching church doctrines first is not 1Pet 1.23 Col 1.5, 23 Eph 1.13
the way and worst if the gospel is not 2Thess 2.13-14 Gal. 3.1-2
preached). Rom 1:16


192
2. Believer now repents and believes in Rom 10.8-13 Mk 1.15
the gospel and the Lord Jesus Christ. Act 3.19, 26, 15.7, 11.14-17,
Calls amd accepts Him in prayer and faith. 16.30-31 Jn 1.12-13
3. God regenerates through the Holy Spirit Jn 1.13 Epn 1:12-13, 2:5, 8
through faith in Christ. Tit 3.5 Act 15.7-9 1Cor 6.11
Col 2:12-13 1Pet 1.2-3
4. Only then, water baptism is applied Act 2.38, 10. 43-48, 15.7-9
and it becomes genuine.

D. How can these things be?
When Jesus said to Nicodemus that he must be born again of the Spirit he asked,
How can these things be? Jesus answered that God loved the world and gave His
Son and all who believe shall have eternal life and not perish.

Jesus died and resurrected for our new birth Jn 3:14-16 1Pet 1:3
Through faith in Him by the gospel we are Jn 3:16 1Pet 1:3, 8-9, 23-25
born again Gal 3:1-2, 26, 4:6
2Thess 2:13-14
Gods will to give new birth to those who
received the Son of God Jn 1:11-13 Jn 12:36 Gal 3:26


IV. NEW CREATION IN NEW BIRTH
What matters is a new creation not religion nor belief on set of commandments or
doctrines.

PREACHING WITH POWER


This is Gods way - the Spirit-filled driven powerful preaching. There are two
types of preaching.If one is preaching from his own words and thoughts and though
he has good insights but lacked Gods words to back it up that makes the sermon of
lesser impact to the listeners. The other type is the sermon drawn out from the
Scriptures itself and let the Holy Spirit speak through you Gods Words. The
message is left in the hearts of the believers, convict them more and change their
lives. This scriptural driven sermon makes the church mature in character and grow
in number. The preacher who experiences power in preaching understands the
difference of a Spirit-filled led powerful preaching from a human powerless
preaching.

& prayer are extended as he ministers to others & to the church.
Act 6:4, 4:13-14
220
b. Presence of the Lord, the Holy Spirit
He is aware and keen of the presence of the LORD in every meeting. He
subjects himself and honors the LORD. In every meeting he worships
with the congregation and lifts up Jesus. When he leads there is an
atmosphere of worship and the Spirit of the Lord moves. During services
he hears and speaks for the Lord. Phil 3:3

character, and spirituality of the
preacher he preaches the word of
God through the Spirit with power.
2. He knows that it is the pure word that Heb 4.12 Jn 3.34
makes a sermon or preaching powerful Jer 1.4- 10, 9, 5.14 Lk 5.1

Preaching and discourse flows directly from the scriptures read.
It is viewed within the context of the chapter, of the book and of the bible
as a whole.
4. God with him
When the preacher preaches all the commands that the LORD has
impressed him God is with Him mightily because he has not neglected His
word. God is with His word and His servant.
Ex 3.14, 4.10-12 Josh 1.2,
5, 7-9 Jer 1.4-10

of lies and betrayals. He is at constant war with the saints and the angels. He was

CULTS & RELIGIONS


Cults are religious groups claiming to be Christians, use His name and Gods
name in their churches and use the bible but deviate from the revealed truth and
testimony of God concerning Christ. Among the false churches and prophets today
are : The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Jehovahs Witnesses,
Church of Christ (Manalo), New Age Movement, Bahai, Children of God, Church
of God International (Soriano), The Kingdom of Jesus Christ The Name Above
Every Name (Quiboloy), Unification, Way International and others that move
away from the gospel of God and from the basic truths of Christianity. The Roman
Catholic church knows from the Bible that Jesus the Son of God is the Lord and Savior
but is not taught and preached in its pulpits for people to be saved but is replaced
and hidden by its rituals and sacraments.

Lord Jesus Christ , the Son of God nor should
he claim to be the last messenger and has the
last message.

III. WITNESSING TO THE CULTS
All the cults have one thing in common. They dont preach the Only One
Gospel. They dont know it although they read it and they wont accept it. They
dont have faith in it. To them the gospel are the teachings they get from the
scriptures or their set of doctrines drawn from it but were out of context. To
be saved is by keeping it. True to its sense the gospel is the word of God but
the Scripture, our Lord Jesus Christ, the prophets and the apostles clearly
portrayed what the gospel is. Some of their members can be set free should
they hear and believe the Only True Gosple of God.

A. Prove to them what is the Gospel:

IV. RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD
The Religions of the world that dont believe Jesus Christ as the Lord and
Savior are Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Chinese Eastern Religions and Animism
among others. They are all are self-made religions and other doctrines
influenced by spirits. The Occults are spiritual religious groups that have
teachings contradicting christian practices & truths and deep into the ways of
Satanism such as spiritism, sorcery, witchcraft.
Col 2.4, 8, 18-23 1Jn 4:1-4

God in these last days has spoken to us by His Son. Revelations that
contradict Jesus words and of His apostles are not from God.
Heb 1.1-2 Gal 1.11-12 1Jn 4:6

A. Gods of this World
Gods conceived as images or spirits.
1. Many gods.
For even if there are so called gods whether in heaven or in earth, as
indeed there are many gods and many lords, yet for us there is one God
the Father from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord,
Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him. However
not all men have this knowledge
1Cor 8.57a Is 45.20-21
2. Gods that do not exist
But the LORD (YAHWEH) is the true God; He is the living God and the
everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes and the nation cannot
endure His indignation. Thus you shall say to them, the gods that did
not make the heavens and the earth will perish from the earth and from
236
under the heavens. Jer 10.1-5, 10-13, Zeph 2.11
What do I mean then? That a thing sacrifice to idols is anything? No, but
I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons
and not to God, and I do not want you to become shares in demons.
1Cor 10.19-20

For all the gods of the peoples are idols (man made) But the LORD made
the heavens Ps 96.5 Hab 2.18-20

3. There is only one God
I am the LORD, and there is no other. Besides Me there is no God
Is 45.5,22 Jer 12.16-17
Thus you will know that I am the LORD, for you have not walked in my
statutes nor have you executed my ordinances but acted according to the
ordinances of the nations around you.
Ezek 11.12

B. Presenting the True God
1. In Life
a. No teaching can be exchanged for a life Col 4.5 1Pet 2.12
of example, love, goodness and faith 2Cor 1.12 Rom 13.8-10
b. Do not offend them for the sake of the 1Cor 9.19-23, 10.27-33
gospel that they might be saved.
c. By your good works they will glorify Mt 5.14-16
your Father in heaven.
2. In Prayer
a. For the weapons of our warfare are not 2Cor 10.4
flesh, divinely powerful for destruction of
fortresses.
b. Spend time in praying for these people Lk 10:20, 11:20 Act 26:18
and for their enlightenment, that God will
open their eyes and grant the repentance
unto eternal ife. Bind and rebuke the
ruling spirits and loose freedom and break
bondages.
3. In the Gospel
a. Present the Gospel, the word of truth 1Tim 2.3-8 Rom 5.6-10
clearly in the power of the Holy Sprit and Jn 3.16-17
with love.
Our concern is to share Gods Testimony. 1Cor 2.1-2, 4-5
Christ and Him crucified, our ransom and 1Jn 5:9-13
eternal life.
b. It is the power of God for salvation that Rom 1.16-17 1Cor 1.17-18
they might hear about Him- Jesus, Rom 10.8-14
and be saved and have eternal life
4. In Contrast
Most of the religions of the world teach their followers to be good, kind,
peaceful and just to all but the problem lies they know within themselves
that their religions cant change them inwardly. Hatred, jealousy,
impurity, immorality, fornication, murders, fear, unwholesome words and
evil character still prevail over themselves, which they cant overcome.
Still there is emptiness, vagueness and longing in their spirits for the
truth. Even they pray, do good works for years there are still no change
237
and peace. The problem is man continuous to sin. When there is no
change inside, religion is worthless. Jesus said, If the Son makes you free
you shall be free indeed.
Js 1.26-27 Jn 8:34-36

Religions teach that to be saved, your good works should outweigh
your bad works. There is only a fifty-fifty chance for salvation.
Obedience is enforced by will. Only Christianity offers total forgiveness
and perfect salvation through Jesus Christ. The true and only God, the
Lord knows mans inability to save his soul from hell. He made
the way. After He finished the work of salvation that is sending His
Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross, He redeems, releases us from our
sins and gives us eternal life. He gives us His Spirit and dwells in
us. He gives us a new heart and a new spirit. He writes His words and
commandments in our hearts so that we now can obey.
Ps 40.6-10 Jer 31.31-34,
32:40 Heb 10.5-13
Ezek 36:26-37



























238
GREAT TRIBULATION


The Great Tribulation is the middle of the last seven years of the earth today.
The antichrist shall reign and many shall be deceived but shall be put to end. The
present system, governments, religions and daily lives of man shall end at the last
day when Christ comes again at the end of the tribulation. It is a period of great
salvation of man from all nations and wrath of the wicked. God pouring on earth His
anger on wicked men. Many saints were martyred and many souls were saved.

I. DANIELS 70 WEEKS
The prophecy Dan 9.24-27 Mt 24.15

The Explanation
A. Dan 9.24 Seventy weeks have been decreed to your people and your holy
city, to finish transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for
iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and
to anoint the most holy place.
The 70 weeks : 1 week = 7 years
70 weeks x 7 years = 490 years
70 weeks or 490 years are decreed for Israel to fulfill all prophecy.
1. to your people and your holy city
There are two recipient of this prophecy, the people and the holy city -
Jerusalem
2. to finish transgression, - Refers to the atonement made
to make an end of sin, by Christ on the cross
to make atonement for iniquity
to bring in everlasting righteousness
3. to seal up vision and prophecy
to anoint the most holy place

B. Dan 9.25 So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to
restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah The Prince there will be seven weeks
and sixty-two weeks, it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of
distress.

The event of time
After 70 years of captivity Dan 9.2
1. Decree issued to restore and rebuild Ezr 1.1-4 Neh 2.1-8
Jerusalem there will be seven weeks or Ezr 6.14
49 years
2. Until Messiah The Prince there will be Lk 19.28-38
sixty-two weeks or 434 years later the
Messiah will come, the Prince into
Jerusalem

C. Dan 9.26 Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have
nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the
sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood even to the end there will be war,
desolations are determined.

239
The event and time:
1. After 62 weeks (434 years) the Messiah The Crucifixion and Death of
will be cut off and have nothing. Jesus Christ Heb 10.10-18
This fulfills Dan 9.24 when Christ died
on the cross. He finished transgression,
made an end of sin, made atonement
for iniquity and brought in everlasting
righteousness.

2. The people of the prince who is to come Fulfilled at 70 AD when
will destroy the city and the sanctuary Jerusalem was besieged by
and its end will come with a flood. Rome. The Temple and the
Sanctuary destroyed.
Lk 19:41-44

3. Even to the end there will be war, desolation are determined. Israel since
the time of their rejection of the Messiah has been experiencing wars and
the world desolations.


Daniel 9.25-26 completes:
The 7 weeks (Rebuilding of Jerusalem)
62 weeks (Coming of the Messiah and His Death and
Resurrection)
69 weeks (The antichrist and the last 7 years of the world)
1more week is left to complete the 70 weeks.

This is the last week on the last 7 years. We are still on the 69
th
week
wherein we are experiencing and will experience Dan 9.26 even to the end
there will be wars, desolations are determined

As prophesied by Christ and is being fulfilled now at the last days until He
comes again to judge nations and destroy the wicked. Mt 24.3-14


D. Daniel 9.27 And he will make a firm covenant with many for one week, but in
the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering, and on
the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a
complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes
desolate.

The Event and Time:
1. The covenant: Dan 9:27
Temple in Jerusalem restored
Sacrifices and offerings restored
2. The time:
One week (7 years duration)
3. The Abomination: The antichrist Mt 24.15-21 2Thess 2:3-4
at the middle of the week (after 3
years of the covenant) sacrifices
and offering stopped. Abominates
and blasphemes the true God
and exalts himself in the Temple.
240
Makes desolations.
4. The Destruction
On the last day of the week or Rev 19.11-21
seventh year, he will be destroyed
at the day of the Lord Jesus Christ

The one week of Daniels vision will come anytime in our time. This last 7
years will come when the Antichrist is revealed. Believers at this time will not
be hurt. Rev 7.1-9, 9.4

RESURRECTION


Resurrection is the blessed transformation of all the saints. The dead in Christ shall
rise first and then those who are alive in Christ shall follow to meet the Lord in the air
at His Coming. Mortality is changed into immortality, the temporal into the eternal, the
physical body into the spiritual, glorified body, from imperfection to perfection.
Resurrection of the saints will happen at Christ s appearing and second Coming after
the Great Tribulation. There is only one first resurrection of the saints. The second
resurrection is the resurrection of the wicked dead into judgment- the second death at
the end of the millennium or 1,000 years after the resurrection of the saints.

STATEMENT OF FAITH


We believe on:
The Scriptures
1. The Bible, with its 66 books, is the only word of God, fully and verbally inspired
by the Holy Spirit, inerrant and infallible, the revealer of truth and salvation and
the final authority for doctrine and practice.
2Tim 3:16 Ps 19:7 Is 34:16 Heb 4:12
Josh 1:8 Jn 17:17

God
2. YHWH/ YAHWEH (LORD) is the Name of our God. The LORD is the Father, the
Son and the Holy Spirit.
Is 42:8 Is 63:16 Zech 14:3-4,5
Is 63:10-14

3. The Father, from whom are all things,The Almighty, Creator, Eternal, Sovereign,
Immutable, All-knowing, Holy and Loving. The One who draws people to Jesus
His Son. He is not seen and heard anytime by man as the Son does.
1Cor 8:6 Mt 11:25 Is 40:28 Eph 4:6 Mt 6:8
Jn 17:11 1Jn 4:7-8 Jn 6:37 Jn 1:18

4. Jesus Christ, He is the Lord of all, the eternal Word, the Only begotten Son of
the Father; through whom all things were created. He is the image of the
invisible God and was seen and heard. The One who makes the Father known to
people, the Savior and Redeemer of man, in His Deity, truly God, pre-existence,
virgin birth, sinlessness, vicarious death, burial, bodily resurrection and personal
visible return.
Act 10:36 Jn 1:1, 3:16 1Cor 8:6 Col 1:15,16
1Tim 3:16 Mt11:27 Tit 3:10 1Jn 4:14 Phil 2:6-8
2Pet 1:1, 3:18 Is 7:14 1Pet 2:22,3:18 Eph
2:14-16 Heb 2:14 Mt 24:29-31

5. The Holy Spirit, who is God and Lord, One in creation, inspired the holy
scriptures, convicts the world of sin, regenerates, indwells, sanctifies and guides
believers into all the truth.
Is 63:10-11,14 Act 5:3-4 2Cor 3:17-18 Jer
23:23-24 Jb 33:4 2Tim3:16 Jn16:9 Tit 3:5 1Cor
3:16-17 1Cor 6:11 Jn14:16-17

Man
6. Man is composed of soul, body and spirit. The first man Adam and Eve sinned
against the Lord through disobedience. Death by sin and death passed to all
men because all have sinned. All people are spiritually dead and are lost in their
natural state because of sin and can only be saved or made alive spiritually by
the grace of God. As one hears the gospel of salvation, repents of his sins and
puts his faith and makes Jesus Christ, who died for him, his Lord and Savior, he
is given new birth and receives eternal life. His soul is saved, the Holy Spirit
given as a pledge; he does not continue in sin and obeys God. At death his soul
252
will be with the Lord, his body returns to the dust. He waits for the redemption
of his body to be changed from mortality to immortality, from perishable to
imperishable when Christ comes again.
1Thess 5:23 Gen 2:15-17, 3:1-6 Rom 5:12 Eph
2:3,1,8 Tit 3:5 Eph 1:13 Lk 13:3 Act 16:30-31
Jn 3:36 1Pet 1:9,23-25 Eph 4:30 1Jn 3:9 1Pet
1:1-2, 14,22 Phil 1:23-24 2Cor 5:6,8 Ps 104:29
1Cor 15:20-23,51-54
Salvation
7. Salvation is brought by the finished work of Jesus Christ who was sacrificed,
died for our sins and paid the penalty once and for all. Gods way for salvation is
for man to hear the gospel and calls us to repent from our sins and to receive
and have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
Rom 5:8-10 2Cor 5:21 Heb10:10-12 1Pet 3:18
2Thess 2:13-14 Eph 1:13, 3:6 Mk 1:15

8. Justification, righteousness, sanctification, new birth and eternal life are wrought
by God through the Holy Spirit through faith in the gospel and the Lord Jesus
Christ and by His blood. Gods election and predestination are based on His
foreknowledge and the pleasure of His good will. The Lord knows those who are
