"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." 1 John 3:8. In this scripture we are told that anyone that commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning, which shows that their sins follow the likeness of the sin of the devil. Since our sins make us children of the devil and are likened unto the sin of Lucifer which he sinned from the beginning, and Lucifer’s sin was not because of a sinful flesh or a nature of sin (Ezekiel 28:15).Then it follows that our sin is not because of sin in our flesh or some sinful nature. To be children of the devil our sins must be exactly after the likeness of the sin of Lucifer from the beginning.
What was Lucifer's sin?
Lucifer's sin was where he rejected the knowledge of the oneness of God and exalted himself, a creation, as god with God (Isaiah 14:12-14). It is this same false doctrine of creation being god with God that he used to tempt man, which caused man to reject the knowledge of the oneness of God and accept the false concept of Lucifer, thus sinning against God (Genesis 3:1-6).
This false doctrine of creation being god with God is what is behind the development of idol values in our hearts that cause us to worship creation as god, falling short of God’s glory and our purpose, thus sinning against God (Ezekiel 14:1-5, Romans 1:21-23,25, Galatians 4:8, Colossians 3:5). Therefore man in sin exalts some form of creation as god with God, whether it is money, shoes, clothes, guns, women/men etc. Since all creation is equal and on the same level, once you exalt one as god, you exalt all as god. We must understand that the sin of Lucifer was not because of sin in his nature or some kind of sinful flesh but because of the false doctrine by which he exalted himself- a creation- as god with God. Then it follows that all who commits sin is of the devil because they are following in his doctrine of creation being god with God, the same doctrine by which he led a rebellion and war against the rule and law of God, against the government of God.
Hereby we are sure that any religion that exalts creation as god (e.g. the Roman Catholic papacy who exalts the Pope as God on earth), or teaches that the very law that shows us who God is by nature, and give us a knowledge of sin, is abolished, all who are against the numerical oneness of God's divine nature, is of the devil (all false Protestants, Evangelical religions, and Baptist religions). All who teaches that God's holy seventh day Sabbath, which is the fruit sign between God and his people that shows the one true God is the one that sanctifies us or makes us sinfree, (Ezekiel 20:12,20, Hebrews 4:1-11) is abolished, and replaces it with Sunday- the mark of a man that was enforced to do away with the seventh day Sabbath of the true God, to show that he is god on earth and must be obeyed by all- is of the devil (all Sunday keeping churches). All who exalt creation as having a divine spark or teach that when the soul dies it lives on or make idols to serve gods, or teaches that God is in all of creation, or do every wrong including murder in the name of a so called god who practices jihad for religion, is of the devil (Hinduism, Buddhism, Satanism, Zionism, all idol worshippers). For such a doctrine that exalts creation as God with God is pantheism.
For this purpose Christ was manifested, to destroy the works of the devil (pantheism), which is the doctrine exalting creation as god with God from which all sin and false religions are birthed. Christ gives back to man a true knowledge of the oneness of God thus separating sin from the mind of all those who receive this knowledge of God, thus destroying the works of the devil (sin) from our minds, making us sinfree and in subjective obedience to God's law (Isaiah 43:10-12, 1 John 5:18-21, Romans 3:21,22,28-31).
ESCAPE FOR THY LIFE!
By Bro. Michael Francis
No indecisiveness in true Christianity; it is either the Creator or creation. Joshua 24: 14, 15, 1 kings 18:21. No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and man. Matthew 6:24
There are never two present realities in a person’s mind at one time. Hence the present ideal in one’s mind will be based on who he or she is giving service profession to, Romans 6:16; either to the Creator God by glorifying him as God alone Psalm 29:2 or to creation which are many. That is why Matthew 6:24 is highlighted in the bible to deal with such folly that has taken root in false Christianity. Good and evil, righteousness and unrighteousness, sin freeness and sinfulness cannot coexist, for Lucifer would truly be right in his argument and rebellion against the most high God Isaiah 14: 12-14 and we would be all men most miserable.
A person can neither claim to love God and love and hold on to evil false principles at the same time Psalm 119:104, nor can one love evil and claim to love God at the same time. In simple terms just like how a man cannot claim to love his wife and hate her at the same time, also can he never claim to love his wife while holding affections for another that is supposed to be regarded for his wife only. The two realities are separate and different in nature. The holiness of God is his God aloneness Psalm 86: 10 and he shares not his glory with another, Isaiah 42:8. There is none like him Isaiah 46: 5,9. Having this YHWH consciousness in one’s mind can only breed a holy, sinfree experience 1 John 3:9, and the evilness of Satan which is the constant idea of claiming to be god with God or putting creation on the same level with God in one’s mind, only brings about a sinful, rebellious experience. Romans 8:5-8, 1 Samuel 15:23
God does not want this for his creation for no man can hold on to his idols and be saved. God wants to give us a genuine holy experience 1 pet 1:15,16, so that he would be exalted as God alone all the time. In achieving this, we must believe, repent and give up any indecisiveness or double mindedness for a double minded man is unstable in all his ways, James 1: 8. Most importantly we must give up every false, deceitful way and our idol values that cause us to sin against God. However, in order to have a single heart in serving God, Luke 8:15, we must understand that great, high and noble holy calling in which we were called, 2 Timothy 1:9 and let God separate us from the evil ranks of sin by changing our heart through justification which will root out any defilement causing us to be sinfree and at peace with God keeping his law, Psalm 119:1-3. This is true purpose and God’s will for his creation.
When we make up our minds to truly serve God without turning back, Hebrews 10:38 it’s a great joy, for there is nothing to lose in serving Christ but everything to gain, Philippians 3: 8, 9. We could now be used in God's service, 2 Timothy 2:21, having genuine love one to another helping each other, 1 Peter 1:22, 1 Timothy 4: 13, 15, 16, even aiding in his work and bringing others to Christ by our born again experience. What a privilege! Matthew 5:16. For Jesus himself said, “ No man, having put his hand to the plough and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God”, Luke 9:62. Also as Christ had emphasized again, he that is not with me is against me, and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad Matthew 12:30. Wow may this never be us.
Let all wavering stop instantly and all second guessing. No more playing Christian. Let all idols be broken down. But may we with firm resolute purpose be committed to the truth, continue in it and receive all the wonderful spiritual benefits and development in the truth, even our sanctification, that we may even receive the latter rain and if it is God’s will be part of the 144, 000 and pass safe in the investigative judgment.
True Christianity is truly only for the sincere at heart.
May God bless us all with purpose in the truth.
Love you all in Christ Jesus.

The world needs "The Good Tidings of Great joy"
We are living in a world with great political intrigue, with decay of moral in our society. All sought of problems we face, on our jobs, family, in school, everywhere we turn is grave selfishness; creation being exalted as god with God and men walking according to the multitude of their idols or false gods.
Yet, we are told in the Holy Scriptures of an angel that brought good tidings of great joy to the shepherds, and not to them only; this good tiding of great joy was for the benefit of all. “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.” Luke 2:10. This good tidings we are told is about “Christ the Lord.” “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
Why do we need the good tidings or the Gospel? Because without it, we will remain mad upon our idols, we will continue to further the lying claims of Lucifer which say creation can be God with God. We will continue to sin. So to be freed from this satanic deception which keeps one in bondage or slave to sin we need the good tidings.
What about man that causes him to be in bondage? We are told that he is without Christ, He is Godless. “That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world.” Ephesians 2:12
As a result of being Godless, He is alien from the common wealth of Israel or not under the reign Of YHWH. This therefore means that his life is ruled by another. If we consider Ezekiel 14: 2-5, we will see that idols are set up in the heart, causing the man to be estranged from God. So instead of having the true and living God in his mind, he has idols (values) in place of God. “And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them? Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the Lord will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols; That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols”. But what are these idols? David tells us that they are false gods. ”For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.” Psalms 96:5
The originator of creation exalting creation as god with God is Lucifer himself, when he said in his heart, “ I will be like the most high.” This is the very same rebellious idea he presented to Eve, which caused the fall of man. (see Isaiah 14:12-14 and Genesis 3:1-6)
Therefore, the good tidings or good news of Christ is Christ; His character is the good news. The Character of Christ says to us all behold your God.” O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! Isaiah 40:9. Christ is the good tidings and through Him we receive God in our hearts. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith…” Romans 1:16, 17 (emphasis supplied).
So, “being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus" Romans 3:24, we receive God in our hearts. "Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference” Romans 3:22 This justification that gives us God in the heart in place of false gods, causes us to keep the righteousness of the law. “Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” Romans 3:30, 31.
Therefore we need the gospel which is the good news of the character of Christ revealing God and causing us to keep the commandments or the righteousness of the law. This experience of sinfreeness exalts YHWH to be God alone; it causes you to have psychological peace. This sinfree experience will create world peace. Without this good tiding we will continue to be Satanist and be in utter ruin.

THE HOPE THAT IS WITHIN ME (THOU ART MY DESIRE)
I desire no rubies, diamonds, silver or gold but to do thy will, O my God. There is no safer place to be than in your loving care. You comfort me and help me to grow from faith to faith, in the riches of your glory let it be my sweet embrace. Ever to know thee and love thee is to do and teach thy law forgetting not the everlasting covenant that shows that thou art GOD. One GOD, Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, Divine, Nature, Love. Oh the sweetest truths of thee are better than silver or gold.
May thy word forever remain in my heart where I know that you shall dwell. Ever leading from day to day, my steps, my words, my thoughts and deeds you'll guide, that I may shew forth your God Aloneness that I shall not dare to hide. O, if the world could only see the love of God manifested, the CREATOR of the Universe, what he had to do to reconcile the world unto Him. How swiftly would they accept the good news of glad tidings and Christ would be today. But men love their idol values and I know, I used to, too. O but thank God for my Jesus for He made me anew. O how my loving Saviour washed me with the water of the word that my carnal mind is no more. For truly there is life and peace that comes only through faith, not of works that I have done or else it won't be a gift. My loving Saviour He is, the one who justified me and now like Job I am innocent and clean without transgression, now can I give glory to my LORD but what can I bring? What can I give to the King of Kings who has given me life, who has redeemed me from the bondage of sin? No amount of riches, gold or sweet incense could I ever give. But if I give thee my life, my heart and my all, let this be my sacrifice for this is all I can give. It is my most treasured possession because it was given from you to me. So Lord I will return to thee that which is rightly yours. Please use me to do your will so that I can proclaim, my LORD, MY SAVIOUR, YHWH, He is the KING of Kings! May I see you coming in the clouds with all your GLORY and forever worship the King of Kings for all ETERNITY!
I pray that you will help my Thusian brethren too, that we may all proclaim the three Angels messages and tell the world to come out of Babylon. Oh for she has fallen just like her father, Lucifer and the Kings of the earth hath committeth fornication with her, because they loved their idols more, and creation more than thee. I pray that they would repent and see the horribleness of sin and thus become sinfree. So they would worship thee for thou art GOD Alone who justifies us by washing us with the washing of the Word that we know is revealed. That is the faith, the revealed truths of the word of God that contains your righteousness. The same righteousness you impute unto us which is to esteem, for that is the inner transformation that occurs inside of us. Ah yes Luther saw it and Jones and Waggoner too, they understood what it meant to be justified, to be forgiven of our sins by Jesus the Crucified. But this is not the end of the story because good works must follow to prove that you are really changed. And one day in the judgement, when Jesus calls our name He would say "Righteous" and after declare he that is righteous let him be righteous still and he that is filthy let him be filthy still. For at that time in the judgement every case will be settled and the worse shall come our way, a global Sunday law. That shall be the greatest test to one and to all. WILL you stand up for Jesus or compromise for food, job or material wealth? Will you be like Daniel and the three Hebrew boys who no matter what stood for God alone, even if it means death? Lord if my life be required of me by you, then gladly take it because I know I have naught to fear. You are the life and the resurrection and may I always remember your words "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake...Rejoice and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in Heaven:..Well done good and faithful servant, thou hast been faithful over few things, enter into the joy of the Lord." Matthew 5:10,12, Matthew 25:23

MARRIAGE- A SACRED INSTITUTION
The marriage institution was created by God himself with the noble purpose for husband and wife to glorify him as God alone, as the true creator of all, and to keep his commandments, a divine principle that was in existence from eternity for all generations to observe, Ecclesiastes 12: 13, 14. Both men and women were created with rights and freedoms that are enshrined in the Law, to truly express their humanity or primary duty to God's service and their fellowmen.
Marriage is the social unit that is based between a man and woman which is the building block of the family and by extension the society and therefore deserves great respect and honour, when one decides to enter this spiritual ceremony. The success of this union can only rely on God's divine counsels and wisdom. For God indeed had ordained male and female marriages.
“The Lord was pleased with the last and noblest of all his creatures, and designed that he should be the perfect inhabitant of a perfect world. But it was not his purpose that man should live in solitude. He said “It is not good that a man should live alone; I will make him a help meet for him.” God himself gave Adam a companion. He provided “an help meet for him” a helper corresponding to him one who was fitted to be his companion, and who could be one with him in love and sympathy. Eve was created from a rib taken from the side of Adam, signifying that she was not to be trampled under his feet as an inferior, but to stand side by side as an equal, to be loved and protected by him. As part of man, bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh, she was his second self; showing the close union and the affectionate attachment that should exist in this relation. For no man ever hateth his own flesh but nourisheth and cherisheth it, Ephesians 5: 29. Therefore shall a man cleave unto his wife and they shall be one Matthew 19:5.”
Marriage is honourable. It was one of Gods first gift to man and it is one of the two institutions that, after the fall, Adam brought with him beyond the gates of Paradise. When the divine principles are recognized and obeyed in this relation marriage is a blessing; it guards the purity and happiness of the race, it provides for man’s social needs, it elevates the physical, the intellectual and the moral nature. Adventist Home pgs 25, 26
What beautiful thoughts in regards to marriage by YHWH. Marriage is indeed a serious moral commitment where persons should be mature and also sanctified enough to enter therein. One must not just marry for any insignificant selfish reason, but with the intent to fulfill duty to God and their partner in always having a holy influence upon them encouraging them in righteousness, helping each other to maintain their justified born again sinfree experience, never encouraging them to do wrong but always in doing Gods works, being able to endure until the end, thus ensuring each other’s entrance into God’s holy Kingdom. Ecclesiastes 9:10
But it is sad to say that we are living in a world where people have left the holy principles of God and have been in constant rebellion to him holding unto all manner of abominable, satanic concepts and doctrines surrounding the nature of the marriage relationship such as:
Sodomite Gay/Lesbian marriages, marriages between Human and Animals, even persons marrying to inanimate objects. This sick and depraved culture which is really Cultural Marxism, takes away the true sacred, moral values for which marriage was established at the Garden of Eden between one male and one female. Mathew 19: 5,6, Psalm 2;1-3
Such cultures uphold ideologies that demoralize society and must be firmly resisted to preserve the family and uphold the right biblical standards and principles that are essential to society. As the bible says we much abstain from all appearances of evil, 1 Thessalonians 5:22. Christ himself likened marriage to himself as the husbandman and the church the bride Ephesians 5:22-25 and therefore this is a perfect example for us that husband and wife should love each other with the knowledge of God and be sanctified by this same truth knowledge. Therefore we conclude Marriage is a holy covenant and can only legitimately exist between a man and a woman. Ephesians 5:25-27
May God bless you all in sinfreeness and holiness, even those who are contemplating marriage.
Love you all in Christ Jesus.
OUR WEDDING POEM
Oh what a beautiful day; A day of sweet reflection
With lots of love and genuine affections
As I hold back tears of joy from my eyes
I thought this blessed day would never arise
Today is truly a gift from God to us my love
For holy angels are looking down from above
For Marriage is indeed honorable and is truly ordained by God
Where two hearts unite as one, both male and female
To strengthen encourage and influence each other in righteousness
Not at all in licentiousness, Looking back 9 years ago,
I know YHWH hath set this so.
This was Gods will for us my dear husband
Through much toil, pain and affliction
We have made it; yeah we’ve done it by Gods grace
May we never depart from the faith in this our journey, though trails may come
But let us continue to let the Creator direct our way, and depend upon the spirit each day
Being a witness to the world, continuing in happiness and sinfreeness
That in the end we both may enter in the pearly gates

The Trial of your faith
“That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:7
God wants to bring us to a state in our experiences where we exalt Him as God alone, so at times to humble us, to prove us, to know what is in our hearts, whether we will keep all His commandments, which is to have him as God alone, our faith is tried.
What we do, when we are tried and tested will either exalt YHWH as God alone or exalt creation as god with God (This is the depth of Satan-the very first sin in the universe). But Christ has already shown us, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Matthew 6:24.
As the children of Israel were tested in the wilderness for forty years, YHWH preserved and sustained them. We are told, “Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.” That YHWH “brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint… fed thee in the wilderness with manna…” Deuteronomy 8:4, 15-16. While YHWH proved them for forty years he was very nigh them. He did not forsake His people; He was ever there to uphold them with His right hand. So likewise when we are tested and tried YHWH is very near to keep and sustain us. The Children of Israel made many mistakes throughout their journey in the wilderness. So much they exalted creation as god with God and forgot to keep His commandments, they forgot God. This prevented them from receiving the blessing of entering into the promise land. They failed of the saints’ reward.
Your testing might not be like that of the Children of Israel. However, whatever is the nature of your trial, the same principles are set forth. Will we keep all God’s commandments exalting Him as God alone or will we break the commandments, thus exalting creation as God with God? The former we must ensure is our experience during the trial of your faith.
This is based on reading Deuteronomy chapter 8.

Glorifying God as God alone.
When we keep or exalt Sunday as the Lord's day we are saying that Lucifer is God with God. But when we keep the whole Law which God gave and commanded us to do we are glorifying and exalting God as God alone which includes the keeping of the sabbath holy in sinfreeness. This ideology ought to be every christian's reign of purpose, exalting and glorifying God as God alone (prethesis) and viewing creation as (subthesis).
