God's declaration of Truth


Luke Chapter 19

The words of Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in red.

19:10 "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost."
19:11 As they were hearing these things, he added and spoke a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately be manifested.
19:12 He said therefore: "a certain nobleman went into a far country, to receive for himself a kingdom and to return.
19:13 And calling his ten servants, he gave them ten pounds and said to them: Trade till I come.
19:14 But his citizens hated him and they sent an delegation after him, saying: 'We will not have this man to reign over us.'
19:15 And it came to pass that he returned, having received the kingdom: and he commanded his servants to be called, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading,
19:16 And the first came saying: 'Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.'
19:17 And he said to him: 'Well done, thou good servant, because thou hast been faithful in a little, thou shalt have power over ten cities.'
19:18 And the second came, saying: 'Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.'
19:19 And he said to him: 'Be thou also over five cities.'
19:20 And another came, saying: ' Lord, behold here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin.
19:21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up what thou didst not lay down: and thou reapest that which thou didst not sow.'
19:22 He saith to him: 'Out of thy own mouth I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up what I laid not down and reaping that which I did not sow.
19:23 And why then didst thou not give my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have exacted it with usury?'
19:24 And he said to them that stood by: 'Take the pound away from him and give it to him that hath ten pounds.'
19:25 And they said to him: 'Lord, he hath ten pounds.'
19:26 But I say to you that to every one that hath shall be given, and he shall abound: and from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken from him.
19:27 But as for those my enemies, who would not have me reign over them, bring them hither and slay them in my presence."
19:28 And having said these things, he went before, going up to Jerusalem.
19:29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethania, unto the mount called Olivet, he sent two of his disciples,
19:30 Saying: "Go into the town which is over against you, at your entering into which you shall find the colt of an ass tied, on which no man ever hath sitten: loose it and bring it.
19:31 And if any man shall ask you: 'Why are you loosing it?' You shall say thus unto him: Because the Lord hath need of it.' "
19:32 And they that were sent went their way and found the colt standing, as he said unto them.
19:33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said to them: "Why are you loosing it?
19:34 But they said: "Because the Lord has need of it."
19:35 And they brought it to Jesus. And casting their cloaks over the colt, they set Jesus on it.
19:36 And as he went, they spread their cloaks upon the road.
19:37 And when he was drawing near, being now at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole company of his disciples began to rejoice and to praise God with a loud voice, for all the miracles that they had seen,
19:38 Saying: "Blessed is he who comes as king, in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
19:39 And some of the Pharisees, from the crowds, said to him: "Master, rebuke thy disciples."
19:40 He said to them: "I tell you that if these keep silence, the stones will cry out."
19:41 And when he drew near, seeing the city, he wept over it, saying:
19:42 "If thou also hadst known, and that in this thy day, the things that are to thy peace: but now they are hidden from thy eyes.
19:43 For the days shall come upon thee: and thy enemies shall cast a trench about thee and compass thee round and straiten thee on every side,
19:44 And beat thee flat to the ground, and thy children who are in thee. And they shall not leave in thee a stone upon a stone: because thou hast not known the time of thy visitation."
19:45 And entering into the temple, he began to cast out them that sold therein and them that bought.
19:46 Saying to them: "It is written: My house is the house of prayer. But you have made it a den of thieves."
19:47 And he was teaching daily in the temple. And the chief priests and the scribes and the rulers of the people sought to destroy him.
19:48 And they found not what to do to him: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.

The Second Epistle of St. Paul to the Thessalonians

The day of the Lord is not to come till the man of sin be revealed. The apostle's teachings are to be observed.

2:1 And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and of our gathering together unto him:
2:2 That you be not easily moved from your sense nor be terrified, neither by spirit nor by word nor by epistle. as sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand.

Chap. 2. Ver. 2. Spirit . . . utterance. . . letter indicate three possible sources of their belief that the parousia is imminent. Spirit refers to some falsely claimed revelation, utterance may be a statement of Paul’s which was misunderstood, or wrongly attributed to him, the letter seems to be one forged in Paul’s name.

2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

Ver. 3. . . The parousia must be preceded by a great apostasy, i.e., a great religious revolt, and the advent of the man of sin, i.e., Antichrist. Son of perdition, one entirely deserving of eternal punishment.

Ver. 3. The day of the Lord will not come. These words have been inserted to complete the sentence, which in the original is elliptical. The expanded reads "Let no man deceive you by any means: for the day of the Lord will not come unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition"

2:4 Who opposeth and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.

Ver. 4. In the temple, that of Apostate Jerusalem which the full consensus of the Church Fathers declare he will rebuild - i.e. the Temple of Remphan; and in the Apostate shell of the former Christian church, which he perverts to his own worship: as the Freemasons have done to the Vatican.

Ver. 4. Antichrist will be characterized by great impiety and pride. He sits in the temple of God, etc. He will aspire to be treated as God and proclaim that he is really God.

2:5 Remember you not that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2:6 And now you know what restrains him, that he may be revealed in his proper time.

Ver. 6. What restrains him. The Thessalonians knew the obstacle. We also know that it is Jesus Christ.

2:7 For the mystery of iniquity is already at work: only that he who is at present restraining it, does still restrain, until he is gotten out of the way.

Ver. 7. Mystery of iniquity, the evil power of Satan’s threefold prevarication and total Apostasy from God, of which Antichrist is to be the public exponent and champion. He who is at present restraining it. The obstacle is now spoken of as a person. Some point out that Michael the archangel and his heavenly army are obstacles, and this is true, which now prevent the appearance of Antichrist – but the primary obstacle is, as St. Justin Martyr teaches: Jesus Christ Himself; when the great Apostasy is complete, then in effect, Christ is “gotten out of the way.”

2:8 And then that wicked one shall be revealed: whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: him

Ver. 8. When Christ appears in glory, He will inflict defeat and death on Antichrist by a mere word of command.
2:9 Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power and signs and lying wonders:

Ver. 9 – 10. By the aid of Satan Antichrist will perform prodigies which men will falsely regard as miracles, and by means of which they will be led to adopt sinful practices.

2:10 And with all wicked deception to those who are perishing. For they have not received the love of truth that they might be saved.
2:11 Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:

Ver. 11. God shall send. . .That is God shall suffer them to be deceived by lying wonders, and false miracles, in punishment of their not entertaining the love of truth.
Ver. 11. 'God sends.' God will allow their willful rejection of truth to have its natural results of spiritual blindness, impenitence and damnation. A misleading influence, or, “a delusion.” The operation of error - the Greek reads: "energian planes" or literally the energy of delusion, which is exactly and actually the fallen spirits of the devils and demons conjured by pagan religion, especially by idolatry. NOW, currently, the Assisi delusion of the Apostates, Ratzinger and Wojtyla and many others present with them, is a very real and prime example. To give oneself over to this is to invite utter and complete damnation of oneself by God.
2:12 That all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity.

2:13 But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you firstfruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit and faith of the truth:
Ver. 13. First-fruits, i.e., earliest believers in the gospel. Some manuscripts read: “from the beginning.” That is, God called them from all eternity.
2:14 Whereunto also he hath called you by our gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast: and hold the teachings, which you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle.
Ver. 15. Teachings, i.e., his teachings whether given orally or in writing. Concerning Apostolic teaching – the oral is included in the written at the point we have the whole New Testament complete, i.e. with the completion of St. John’s Gospel.
2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God and our Father, who hath loved us and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope in grace,

2:17 Exhort your hearts and confirm you in every good work and word.

Parousia of Jesus Christ Our Lord: Jews called in Christ: The I AM in the Old and New Testaments and the seven names of God in the Old Testament

Parousia of Jesus Christ Our Lord: Jews called in Christ: The I AM in the Old and New Testaments and the seven names of God in the Old Testament

The seven names of God in the Old Testament – all other names therein are variations for the most part.

In addition the Holy Spirit is named. In Hebrew the Holy Spirit is Ruach or Ruach Elohim (the Holy Spirit of the Triune God).

Jesus Christ, the Son of God and His leading the Patriarchs and Israel is shown in the Old Testament. And Jesus is named in Greek in the Septuagint prophetically.

One example: Hb:3:18 But I will rejoice in the Lord: and I will joy in God my Jesus. (DRV)

The Seven Names of God {Reference source: The Catholic Dictionary 1950} ADONAI YAHWEH ELOHIM EL SHADDAI ELYOWN QADOSH which can be translated in order directly and it is correct. It translates, literally as: Lord Yahweh (I Am) God (Majestic plural "We" as in French where it is literally plural, i.e. the Trinity) God Mighty (as in Almighty) Most High Holy (as in All Holy, the Holy one, not meaning plainly absolutely singular but the One who is Holy). Therefore: Lord Yahweh Triune God, God Mighty, Most High, Holy. ADONAI = Lord, YAHWEH = I Am - meaning the only One and True God who has Aseity which is self existence, ELOHIM = God Trinity, EL = God, SHADDAI = Mighty, ELYOWN = Most High, QADOSH = Holy

Dt:6:4:4 Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord. (DRV) In Hebrew, that is: Shemah Y’srael Yahweh Eloheinu Yahweh echad. This English translation is as deficient as most are. Not on purpose, because translation is many times very difficult. The Hebrew text is taken to be the Masoretic by most translators (which is not what St. Jerome worked from) and therefore Yahweh is rendered Adonai which is Lord in English. Concerning the Most Holy Trinity, one name of God here and it’s modifier are important. Eloheinu is a form of Elohim and both are plural. El in the above seven names of God is singular and in the Old Testament almost always refers to God the Father. Echad is plural but in a sense of unity of the plurality concerning Eloheinu – Who is Yahweh, which is the most sacred name of God in the Old Testament Hebrew. The Jew, Maimonides, the Anti-Christian Talmudist, in the later Middle Ages attempted to make God in the Shemah singular by lying and substituting iahid (which is absolutely singular) for echad. St. Jerome’s vulgate renders the Shemah as “audi Israhel Dominus Deum noster Dominus unus est” simply because Latin has no equivalent for echad. Hence St. Jerome used ‘unus.’ Moses certainly did know that God is Triune. In the above seven names of God, Adonai or Lord refers to any one of the Holy Trinity. Yahweh is the actual name of God in His very nature which is His essence or substance. Essence is houmoosia in Greek and substance is substantia in Latin. Yahweh therefore is the name equally of all three persons of the Holy Trinity. Elohim is the Trinity. El is God the Father and Shaddai (almighty power of God) is the Almighty Son who is the only Mediator between God and men and Qadosh or Holy One, as it is usually rendered, can refer to the Holy Spirit and most especially does in Miqqadosh meaning literally Sanctifier. Hence the Shemah is Moses confession given him by God of the Triune three persons of the Godhead.

A further extension of Yahweh’s name given Moses is Ahiyah asher Ahiyah where Yah is directly Yahweh. In this name the very nature of God is Yah of Yah so that Christ only – begotten of the Father before all time and creation is meant. Also, the Church Fathers tell us that Yeshua is Hebrew for Jesus, especially in St. Matthew’s Gospel in it’s original Hebrew. Yeshua is exactly from Yahweh in a form that indicates that Yeshua is of the nature of Yahweh (in this case God the Father – El) and is furthermore distinct in a sense, in other words, God the Son. This is the verse it occurs in. Ex:3:14:14 God said to Moses: I AM WHO AM. He said: Thus shalt thou say to the children of Israel: HE WHO IS, hath sent me to you. (DRV) This is the verse that the Jews call the tetragrammaton, but in fact, it is the most explicit Old Testament reference to the eternal begetting from the Father of the Son. That is, the Son of God Who will be sent for the salvation of those who believe in Him. It was Christ pre-incarnate on the mount that gave Moses the law and Who during Moses’ sojourn with Him gave Moses the prophecies of His own future Incarnation. Another such prophecy of Christ’s future incarnation is the following: Dt:18:15:15 The Lord thy God will raise up to thee a PROPHET of thy nation and of thy brethren like unto me: him thou shalt hear: (DRV) These are in the Old Testament. Two of the New Testament references to the same meanings are the below: Jn:8:58:58 Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I AM. (DRV) St. Paul referring to the Exodus: 1Cor:10:4:4 And all drank the same spiritual drink: (And they drank of the spiritual rock that followed them: and the rock was Christ.) (DRV)

Especially regarding the importance of the New Testament verse Jn:8:58:58 Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I AM. We must absolutely take note of the fact that Christ here professes Himself as pre-existent, which only God can be by His nature pre-existent. Patristically, the Greek here is most important and very exact, "I AM" is in the Greek, "egoo eimi." It is linguistically, and especially in terms of the Septuagint-Koine Greek it philologically extends from, "o oon" which exactly sums up the core meaning of Homoousion from Houmoosia, which is extended exactly from "o oon." (Homo = same and ousion from ousia from oon meaning essence, which the Church Fathers used creedally from this exact verse to exegete the Most Holy Trinity; with "Yahweh" which is "egoo eimi" i.e. "o oon" which is "I AM" as the core essential BEING of GOD self existent and Immortal, having always existed and always existing forever, which nature is shared equally by all three Persons of the Most Holy Trinity - i.e. all three having the same essence.)

Rev. 1:4 – 6 John to the seven churches which are in Asia. Grace be unto you and peace, from him that is and that was and that is to come: and from the seven spirits which are before his throne:
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first begotten of the dead and the prince of the kings of the earth, who hath loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood (when He became Incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the blessed virgin Mary and went to the Cross for our salvation)
And hath made us a kingdom, and priests to God and his Father. To him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen.(DRV)

6 And he said to me: It is done. I am Alpha and Omega: the Beginning and the End. To him that thirsteth, I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely. (DRV)
These two phrases that is and that was and that is to come (Greek “‘o oon kai ‘o en kai ‘o erchoumenos”) and I am Alpha and Omega (Greek: “egoo eimi to Alpha kai to Omega”) are emphatic declarations of Christ’s Divinity and Immortality for it is the Thrice Holy Trinity – Rv:4:8 And the four living creatures had each of them six wings: and round about and within they are full of eyes. And they rested not day and night, saying: Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come. (Greek “‘agious ‘agious ‘agious kurios ‘o theos ‘o pantocrator”) – alone Who possesses Aseity (self existence and Who is therefore alone uncreated) and Who is Immortal of the same Essence/Substance – Nature.

In the above: the “who [that] is”, in Greek “‘o oon”, is the declaration of Aseity. The “who [that] was” and the “who [that] is to come” with the “‘o oon”, self existence, is the declaration of Immortality (having no beginning and no end – always existing). The phrase I am Alpha and Omega has exactly the same meaning. “I am” – “egoo eimi” is the equivalent of Yahweh (God’s proper name) in Hebrew meaning “I am” in the same sense as the above “‘o oon”. Alpha and Omega has the same meaning as Immortality in the above. Pantocrator (translated as Almighty) is the declaration of the Thrice Holy Lord God’s All ruling absolute Sovereignty and includes emphatically the meaning that He is alone uncreated and Creator, ex nihilo, of all of creation. This relates directly to the beginning of the Gospel of St. John and the beginning of the first book of the Torah (the Pentateuch) which is Genesis. See: Genesis 1:1 through 2:4 and St. John’s Gospel 1:1 through vs. 18. All of this and the exact seventy human generations recounted in St. Luke’s Gospel 3:1 – 38 from Adam to Christ (see also the parallel in St. Matthew’s Gospel 1:1 – 25 from Abraham to Christ) and the testimony of the Church Fathers does not allow any pagan evolutionary gods nor even sophist pantheistic idolatrous creationism but only creation by the Creator as He said He did it, and only Redemption in God and His Christ (the Messiah, al-Maseeh) as He said that it is; the false gods or pagan idolatrous religions that willfully reject God and Jesus Christ (those who do not willfully reject Him but seek God in their hearts are judged by God alone) are without grace and they and their followers will be damned forever, who do not repent in this life from those false gods and religions and come to God and His Christ and make confession in Him and be baptized by God’s Spirit {believers in monotheistic Islam and all men of good will (in the full consensus of the Church Fathers) are included as true believers in the true God and therefore saved by their confession of belief in and fulfilling the will of God, Allah (SWT)}. Allah is from biblical Hebrew ‘Eloah’ and means the true God, All middle Eastern Christians, including Catholics, who are Arabic speakers call on Allah as the name of the true God. Amen.
