ETERNAL LIFE. THE KINGDOM OF THE LORD
YHWH the Lord our God is
one. Creator of the universe. Almighty. Omnipotent. Omniscient and Omnipresent.
Good Father who loves all of us with endless mercy and has a Kingdom ready for
us to which He calls us for eternity through the faith in the work of salvation
of His Son. He exists eternally in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Trinity is not rational but spiritual; it cannot be understood by man’s mind,
but it can be discerned by our spirit when we are born again from the Spirit of
God, and it is obvious through experience to those of us who know the Lord in
His Word and through His Spirit. God is not three different beings or gods. Man
is made to the Lord’s likeness, and we are also three: spirit, soul and body.
God provides us with the
answer to existential questions: Who are we? Where do we come from? Why are we
here? And, where are we going? He is whom He is, the Verb. God is the God of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, of the prophets of the Bible and of Christians, the
God of every man. In the definition of the God of “Avraham”, of “Yitzchak” and “Ya-akov”-“Yisrael”
we find a spiritual pearl from the Lord, our God. Abraham means
“father of many nations”,
Isaac means “laughter” and Israel – Jacob’s new name – means “he who
fights with God and wins". The interpretation of this is the God of nations,
the God of spiritual joy and the God of those who fight to obtain His
blessing, Isaac, the holy laughter, the joy of the Spirit, is the symbol of
Christ, the Son of the promise, our joy.
“Hear, O Israel: YHWH our God, YHWH is one! 5
You shall love YHWH your
God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.
7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of
them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down,
and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand,
and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write
them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:4.
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want. 2
He makes me to lie down
in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the
paths of righteousness for
His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of
the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are
with me; Your rod and Your staff, they
comfort me. 5
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head
with oil; my cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow
me all the days of my life; and
I will dwell in the house
of the Lord Forever. Psalm 23.
1 I will lift
up my eyes to the hills—from whence comes my help? 2
My help comes from the
Lord, Who made heaven and earth. 3 He will not allow your foot
to be moved; He who keeps
you will not slumber. 4 Behold, He who keeps Israel shall
neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade at
your right hand. 6 The sun shall not strike you by day, nor
the moon by night. 7
The Lord shall preserve you
from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. 8
The Lord shall preserve
your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.
In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He
was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him,
and without Him nothing was
made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the
light of men. … 9 That was the true Light which gives light to every
man coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was
made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His
own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as
received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who
believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will
of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14
And the Word became flesh
and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only
begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1.
God is our Creator. God
is our Father, our shield and protector, our Friend, our life, our hope. God is
the King of the Universe for eternity. Blessed be His name for eternity.
HalleluYah, Hosannah, Maranatha.
The Bible is the Word of
God. Inspired by Him, Holy and infallible. Revealed by God to His prophets in
its original manuscripts. The prophetic Word for man. The utmost supreme
authority and guide of moral behaviour and life under the New Testament. The
main and final message of the Bible is
of Salvation for the Kingdom of God, the biggest hope for humanity. The
Bible contains the teaching of the knowledge of God, the historic-prophetic
teaching, the moral-doctrinal teaching, and the symbolic and spiritual teaching
for the growth of the disciples. Study material such as the
Spiritual Dictionary of the
Bible and a useful
Sitemap of the teachings of
Jesus Christ that has been set out following an order of spiritual growth, are elements for
the growth of the Church.
interprets itself and does not need
external defense. In the spiritual vision of the Bible, the disciple of Jesus
Christ finds, through the Holy Spirit, the interpretation of the Bible for
personal and church growth. The Holy Spirit has provided the Church with pastors
and teachers who teach how to interpret the Bible through the Holy Spirit in the
teaching of the
that is found in many

to you, if anyone keeps My
word he shall never see death. John 8:51.
the Holy Scriptures,
which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ
Jesus. 16 All
Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,17 that
the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Jesus Christ is God made
Man. The eternal Son of God. The Verb of God became flesh, John 1. He is the
Word of God who became man in order to save us eternally and through His death
on the Cross pouring His blood for our sins. He resurrected, went up to the
heavens and reigns to the right of the Father. Jesus Christ is God in the
Trinity and a real man. Creator of everything that has been created, for His
glory. John 1:9. And in 1Timothy 2:5 He is shown as our only mediator before the
Father. He says about Himself that He is the Way to the Father, where He comes
For unto us a Child
is born, unto us a Son is
given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And
His name will be called
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Prophecy of Isaiah 9:6.
…Jesus said to him, “I
am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through
Me. John 14.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is our
friend, helper and comforter. The Spiritual person of the Lord. He accompanies
us along the Way until the Kingdom of God comes. His first work is to convict
the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. John 16:8. The Holy
Spirit comes to our soul and makes us be born again in our spirit, when we
believe His message with our heart: the salvation of Jesus Christ. Repentance
and reconciliation with God through the faith on the Cross of Christ, is a gift
from the Lord which is given to us by God through the Spirit. The Spirit teaches
us the Scriptures throughout our lives and intercedes for us with groaning which
cannot be uttered. Romans 8:26. A Christian must live in the Spirit. Romans
chapter 8. From then on, man loves God above all things and His Spirit
accompanies us during our life.
…If you love Me, keep My
commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you
another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17
the Spirit of truth,
whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but
you know Him, for He dwells
with you and will be in you. … 18 I will not leave you
orphans; I will come to you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father
will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your
remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14.
…If you then, being
evil, know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more will your
heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!. Luke 11:13.
The love of God for man
can be seen in the work of His Son on the Cross. God loves us in such a way that
He gave His Son for us so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but
have everlasting life. John 3:16. Salvation is received through faith in the
redeeming work of Christ for us, who through repentance transforms man’s mind to
become Christ’s mind, in the new birth of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ
announced His sacrifice for us and resurrection to all the dead of every age,
past, present and future (John 5:25), who have not had the opportunity of
hearing the Gospel because they have not been reached by preaching or have not
had access to the Bible to know it, therefore every single person in humanity is
given the opportunity of salvation. Ephesians 4:9, 1Peter 3:19-20. We all have
to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal Savior and say this to the
to Christ and confess it before others, because:
God so loved the world
that He gave His only
begotten Son, that
whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John
…Jesus answered and said
to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see
the kingdom of God.”.
MAN AND SIN
Since the garden of
Eden, man has walked away from
God, our Father, our Creator and our best Friend, in order to follow
his own project of life and he has failed, as it is obvious. We believe that man is
separated from the Lord because of sin, a word which in the New Testament
appears as the greek word “amartia”, meaning error. This word was used when
someone did not hit the target; a man without Christ misses the target in his
life and is separated from God and therefore is in error. Read Romans 7:7. Man
remains in his independent and selfish nature, in his own mind making his
personal projects become his idols, and therefore he falls short of the glory of
God. A man without God does not want to give up his own plan and project of life
due to his own pride and foolishness and only looks for God to obtain the
blessings and help when he is in need. This error was, and is, the devil’s
proposal, the ancient snake called devil and Satan in order to have man under
his influence and tricks from Genesis or the beginning.
The snake has power over
the mind through a heavy code of moral, rules, practices and traditions which
have become so heavy throughout the years that man cannot bear them and fails in
all of them, in every proposal of religion, moral, law, ideals, etc, which are
continuously amended until man realizes that there is no possible way out. Man
under the serpent has been cheated and defeated. Thus, man fights between
science and faith, with vain and ever-changing arguments depending on
the age, as we can see through the evolving science with continuous new
discoveries which refute what had been taught previously. The only hope is
through God’s grace, without merits on our side, through the Cross of Christ,
who has offered Himself in our place to deliver us from condemnation and death,
removing the devil's power over us, if we receive the Son of God as
our Saviour, as well as our best Friend. “Repent”.
we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not
in us. 1John 1:10.
by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is
the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
10 For we are His workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for
good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
The Gospel of
salvation for the Kingdom of God is to be preached by every
Christian, and therefore the Church spreads the Gospel to all
nations, through all possible media within our reach. Salvation is
received by faith in the work of redemption of Christ for us on
the Cross of
Calvary, as atonement for our sins, and through repentance
changes the mind of man into Christ's being born again of the
Holy Spirit. This is the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to His
apostles and to every Christian.
...For the preaching of the cross is to them that
perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of
God. 1Corinthians 1:18.
...Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All
power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and
teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and
of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the
end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28.
A Christian is part of
the Body of Christ, The Church. Baptism by immersion in water, in the name of
Jesus Christ and according to Matthew 28, makes us become members if we are
conscious of its true meaning, and it must be fulfilled in order to declare our
faith before the Lord and men. Baptism is like the signature in the contract
which says that we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Saviour. Once baptized, a
Christian is called by Jesus Christ to a holy life – not a worldly one – to walk
along next to God. Once baptized, a Christian must have Holy Supper, sharing the
breaking of the bread and drinking the wine as symbols of the body and blood of
Christ; a body which the Christian now belongs to, that becomes obvious throughout his life taking the bread and drinking the wine, in their spiritual
meaning of eating the Flesh and drinking
the Blood of Christ,
which has cleansed our sins. In the Church, the body of Christ must also take
part, and especially in the worship and praise through songs and spiritual hymns, a ministry that
should be entrusted to those brothers who have the gift of music and singing,
and the Psalms
are a perfect example of this. In order to understand the Church, a Christian
must study the History of the Church,
not just in its historical and well documented context but also in its Bible
origins, in the life of Jesus Christ with the
12 Apostles and in
A Christian who lives under the guide of the Lord is lamp and salt of the
Ministry of the Church
in his church, in the service to God and his neighbour.
Christian life is
on-going spiritual growth. In the spiritual vision of the Bible, the disciple of
Jesus Christ finds – through the Holy Spirit – the interpretation of the Bible
for growth, both personal and in the church,
which will lead us to walk in the love of God and love for our brethren in the faith,
for our family and for our neighbours in general, taking them to the Gospel. Our
church is our
family in Christ. The fruits
will be seen in the love for God, in the love for the brethren and for the
neighbour, especially for the poor and those
who have been rejected by society, in
good works of
Humanitarian Aid and by
preaching the Gospel. Faith is the gift from the Lord to be saved and live. A
Christian must become holy (separate himself) from the world and false
christians and share his life with Christians and churches that follow the sound
doctrine. Galatians 6:2 and 1John 3:14-17. A Christian is born again when he has
received the faith on the Son of God and calls Jesus “Lord” in the depth of its
meaning. Then he has come to know the Holy Spirit, who will baptize him in God’s
spiritual fire. Most assuredly, I say to you,
unless one is born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God.”. John 3:3.
God provides the Church
with spiritual gifts, ministries and ministers for its governance, benefit and
mission, in elders or bishops, pastors and teachers, and in deacons to serve the
believers, a nation of kings and priests. We believe that when a man is born
again he has to remain in salvation, participate actively in his church, in
helping the poor, in daily prayer, in praising the Lord in the congregation to
give Him the glory amongst His people, and in his daily life, and in the study
of the Bible, 1Peter chapters 4 and 5. This is the description about
who we are as
Christians, without denomination.
…So when they had
appointed elders in every
church, and prayed
with fasting, they
commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed. Acts 14.23
…And as they went
through the cities, they delivered to them the decrees to keep, which were
determined by the apostles and elders at Jerusalem.
So the churches were
strengthened in the faith, and increased in number daily. Acts 16:4.
…Therefore take heed to
yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy
Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He
purchased with His own blood. Acts 20:28.
…And He Himself gave
some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and
teachers, 12 for the
equipping of the saints for
the work of ministry, for the
edifying of the body of
Christ, 13 till we
all come to the unity of
the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man,
to the measure of the
stature of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11.
ISRAEL. MESSIANIC. PROPHECIES.
Israel has kept the Word
of God for all nations until the coming of Jesus Christ, as the Church has done
thereafter with the Bible. They were taken to the nations outside their land
after the destruction of the temple in year 70, fulfilling the prophecy of Jesus
Christ in Matthew 24, not receiving the Messiah as a nation. But they had the
promise to return to their land, which was fulfilled in 1948, and of spiritual
restoration as a nation at the end of times, when the times of the gentiles are
over. Messianic Jews are the last link between the Church and the Jews, in the
later times, and the conversion of Israel to Yahshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ,
is happening in our days. Zechariah 12 and Romans 11.
In addition to the promises
about Israel, we find that the Bible is the prophetic Word of God. Bible studies
on Bible prophecies are a window to God’s prophetic clock. We can see their
fulfillment in the
News about Jerusalem, the
Church and the world. A Christian must know and study the
Bible Prophecies in order
to know which spiritual time he lives in, which are the current events and
strategies of the world against the Gospel and to prove to men the
the Word of God.
…For I do not desire,
brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise
in your own opinion, that
blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has
come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:
“ The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from
Jacob; 27 For this is My covenant with them, when I take away their
sins.” 28 Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but
concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. 29
For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:25.
so we have the prophetic
word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a
dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts;
20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private
interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but
holy men of God spoke as
they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2Peter 1:19-21.
JESUS CHRIST RETURNS. RESURRECTION.
Jesus Christ returns
according to the Bible prophecies, as He did the first time. At that time, it
was to conquer the devil and sin on the Cross of Calvary. On His return, He
shall establish His Kingdom.
Resurrection will happen when Jesus Christ comes in the clouds, to
establish His Kingdom, together with the rapture on the air of His disciples who
are alive in the end of times. Read 1Corinthians 15.
…Do not marvel at this;
for the hour is coming in which
all who are in the graves
will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good,
to the resurrection of life,
and those who have done evil,
to the resurrection of
condemnation. John 5:28-29.
…For the Lord Himself
will descend from heaven
with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And
the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and
remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in
the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 1Thessalonians
FINAL JUDGMENT. HEAVEN AND HELL.
Final Judgment will
condemn those who abhor God and have not received the Gospel of salvation with
Jesus Christ. Every nation opposed to God, who persecute the true Church, Israel
and Jerusalem, shall be conquered on the day of His coming. He shall judge and
resurrect all the dead, some for eternal life and others for eternal
condemnation. Prophecy will be fulfilled at the end of times when human kind has
come to the end of its race towards self-destruction, not only as a species but
also individually, after having seen themselves under material selfishness and
moral destruction and opposed to God’s Holiness. In resurrection, the righteous
will remain with God for eternal life and the unrighteous will resurrect for
eternal punishment. Man’s soul does not die in physical death and will receive a
new body in resurrection, to live eternally in the Kingdom of the Lord. The soul
of those enemies to God will go to hell for eternity. Matthew 10:28. We believe
and wait for the coming of the Kingdom of God and Christ, that the heavens and
earth as we know them now will be destroyed and we await for new heavens and new
earth. The New Jerusalem will come down from heaven and will be established
according to 2Peter 3.
…Blessed be the God and
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has
begotten us again to a living hope through the
resurrection of Jesus
Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and
undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in
heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the
power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the
last time. 1Peter 1:3-5.
of that day and hour no one
knows, not even the angels of heaven, but
My Father only.
He is coming with clouds,
and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes
of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. Revelation 1:7.
ETERNAL LIFE. THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
Eternal Life in the
Kingdom of God, in peace and happiness with God and the family of those who are
saved by Him. This is the promise that Jesus Christ has granted us through faith
in His work. Living a Christian life, we can persevere in faith until His
Kingdom comes. In His Kingdom, all those who love God and the Messiah, our
Saviour, will be kings and priests and will enjoy with God all His blessings,
some of them now and then after resurrection, throughout eternity, as bride of the Lamb.
Read Revelation, chapters 21 and 22. In the meantime…The kingdom of God is
within us … Luke 17:21. The kingdom of God will be established universally. This
one and other Bible prophecies must be studied and understood by the Christian
and announced to the world, for the glory of the Lord.
He is coming with clouds,
and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes
of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. Revelation 1:7.
seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things
shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33.
…Most assuredly, I
say to you, unless one is
born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”. John 3:3.
As a reminder in the
history of the Church about declarations of faith, our recognition in Passover
2009 to the Creed of the Apostles:
Creed of the Apostles
We believe in YHWH,
Yahweh, God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth: And in Jesus Christ
his only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin
Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he
descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into
heaven, and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he
shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit; the
holy universal church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the
resurrection of the body; and eternal life. Amen.
Learn the Bible, the
Word of God for every nation, it will make you wise, check and confirm every
doctrine in order to avoid being misled, pray and praise God. Do not give up
meeting together in houses or churches with other disciples. Psalm 133; you will
know them by their fruits, Matthew 7:16. The Church is all of us who believe
that Jesus Christ is the Messiah of humanity, the Son of God and our Saviour,
and we live a life that can be recognized by our Christian fruits. If
you are still not a Christian, you are still on time. We invite you to the
Kingdom of God. Know Jesus Christ
HERE. … By this
all will know that you are
My disciples, if you have love for one another. John
Smile :-) God loves us.
In the hope that this
ministry will be of use and blessing, which is at the service of His majesty the
King of kings, Jesus Christ, Jesus of Nazareth, Yahshua, we greet you and bless
you in the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
…The kingdom of God is
within us…Jesus Christ returns…
