The Work

Notes from: https://www.jesusteachings.com/

Study the scriptures yourself. Divide the word of God.

Work out your own salvation: salvation being revealed once again, in the end time. “Study to show yourself approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of God.” All scripture is given by revelation from God, for instruction in righteousness.

Accept nothing on blind faith. Open your mind and open your Bible. Read, study, learn, apply and prove all things unto your self. It’s time to become like those who are not, that we may be with those who are not.

It is time to study & apply the teachings of Jesus to your self; to become a diligent workman, who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of God, to get to the truth. It is time to clear away the rubbish of religion which has buried the teachings of Jesus. The only reason people cannot take hold of these teachings AND DO THEM, is their prior learning is controlling their thoughts and feelings.

Yes we have to work out our own salvation, each and every one of us, on our own, by our self. Each one of us must eat the fruit and renew our mind; no one can do this for us.
You need to learn to quote scripture at the soul every time its evil head rises up from below, whispering rationalizations into your mind to gain entrance into and the control of your mind. You need to learn to call upon God to help you in the purification process as you cannot do it your self; the devil is too powerful, too cunning, too deceptive, and too clever.

You need to have Great patience and long perseverance. You need to fill the devil’s evil soul with the word of God – fill it full. You need to quote scripture at the evil thoughts rising up from the soul below. You must become relentless in becoming Righteous once again, this is how we drive the devil away and keep him away. No matter what the soul wants us to do, keep doing, or return to doing, we use scripture to drive the evil, sinful thoughts away: this is how we suffer greatly in this world, destroying our false idols, the things we thought we loved.

For it is not in the reading of the truth, nor in the talking of the truth by which we are saved, but it is in the “doing” of the truth, the “applying” of the truth to one’s self by which we are saved. Put the truth into practice and “work out your own salvation” by doing, changing and becoming born again. Call on God for revelations: for whosoever is born again of God’s righteousness, overcometh this world. Follow in the Way Jesus demonstrated. Ask for help that he delivers us from this evil world. DO what Jesus did, and you will be where he is.

We must become “born again”, created anew, then we perform the work after being being born again. We cannot do it by ourselves: God and his Son born of man, Jesus, help us to become born again. Born Again is between God and you, with the help of Jesus, the intermediatery who acts on our behalf, to help us to “work out our own salvation”.

Forgive others, Don’t be self righteous.

We are to forgive: to forgive those who trespass against us. “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” (Lk 23:34) Showing the true love of understanding, that They are Lost.

Your sins are forgiven you as you have forgiven those who sinned against you (for they know not what they do). Let your WILL exceed the strength of Samson and do not let the soul cause you to sin.

Where your treasure is, there will your heart be. Let thine eye be single and thy body full of light; you cannot serve both God and mammon. Blessed be ye poor; for yours is the Kingdom of God. Give, and it shall be given unto you. Be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving, even as God has forgiven you. Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely and be content with your wages. Love ye your enemies and do good, and give hoping for nothing in return, and your reward shall be great; and ye shall Be the children of the Highest: for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

3.) FORGIVE those who have done you wrong, for they know not what they do. Remember the One and Only Commandment, “do love”. If you have anything against another, forgive them. Judge not and that judgment shall not judge you from your soul. This is not to say that you should put yourself in the way of abuse or that you should let others abuse you, but if it has happened in the past, forgive them, but learn from the experience as not to repeat it again, for if you allow it to repeat are you not causing the downfall of your brother? Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone; if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. Be it known unto you therefore, that although “Jesus” is preached unto you as coming for the forgiveness of God for our sins, remember, you hath he quickened who were dead in trespasses and sins. Jesus says, “if any man hears my words, and believes not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.” Let us not therefore judge one another any more, but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way. There is not a wise man among you, no, not one, that is able to judge his brethren? Judge your self in all matters, for that judgment is true. Speak not evil one of another and peace will be with you all.

Love & Look after others.

Thou shalt do the love of God with all thy will, with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thou shalt do love to thy brothers and sisters as thyself. And who are thy brothers and sisters? A certain person went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped that person of raiment, and wounded that person, and departed, leaving that person half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw that person, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on that person, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where that person was: and when he saw that person, he had compassion, and went to, and bound up that person’s wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set that person on his own beast, and brought that person to an inn, and took care of that person. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of that person; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

Are we our brothers’ and sisters’ keeper? ….. we should be.

Love is not a word; although we have a word called “love”. Love is not a saying; although we have a saying, “I Love You.” Love is a demonstrated act of unselfishness, expecting nothing, not even love in return. Love is the way of righteousness. Love is not limited nor diminished by anything. Love is not faked nor pretended; for such are the acts of the Evil One.

“We know how much God loves us, and we put our trust in his love. There is no fear in love. Perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment. God is love, not fear, and all who live in love, live in God, and God lives in them.” (1John 4:16,18)

“Love is patient. Love is Kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. Love does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1Cor 13:4-7)

In other words, Do Not Hate. Take this word, hate, out of your vocabulary and do not invoke its satanic power again. Hate nothing; for all comes our way for our perfection. The hate of any thing, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, delays the process of perfection. Use not this word again in your thinking or speaking for it conjures up the devil immediately; for hate is the love of the devil and “because of hate, the love of many waxes cold”.

The fruits of the mind that does love are joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance.

We do not “do love” because God first loved us, but we do love because it is the way of righteousness; for if we do love only to those who do love to us, and do not love to everyone equally, unconditionally, then we are like the Evil One’s angels who say they love each other and hate those who be not with them.

Yes, God’s love is made manifest through us and in no other way. For this is the message that we have heard from the beginning of the world, that we should do love to one another, that we are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers, that while we can’t help everyone, everyone can help someone.

The Law of God is that we love one another by doing unto others as we would have them do unto us; whether family, friend, foe or stranger.

Then Jesus tells us to DO his commandment. And what does Jesus tell us to do? We are to love God with all our mind, and to love our neighbours, and to love our self. However: “let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed (doing) and in truth.” (1 John 3:18)

Be careful of temptation.

We are to pray to God to keep us from temptation; and remember, “God does not tempt any man,” nor will God “suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able.” (James 1:13, 1Cor 10:13)

5.) Take no thought for the morrow. Take no thought beforehand what ye shall do to fight the soul; do not premeditate as this is the work of the soul. You will see that every time you try this, what you would not do, you do; and what you would do, you do not; for it is the soul within that wants you to think in this way, so it can cause you to fail and weaken your will. There is a law that when you would do good, evil is present within you, warring against the law of your mind, bringing you under its control to sin.

Therefore take no thought for the morrow, for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof; therefore “watch” that ye may be able to withstand the evil of the day, and having done all to resist the temptations of the soul, to stand and fight another day. If the goodman of the house had known in what moment the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Watch that ye enter not into temptation: the mind indeed is willing, but the soul is full of deceit. And what I say unto you I say unto all, let us not sleep as others do, but let us watch and be sober; be always in the moment and Watch! WATCH for Satan is coming to tempt and deceive you; stay in the moment as each day is sufficient for fighting the evil thereof. Possess the soul within, in patience.

The days are evil. (Eph 5:16) Cleanse your mind. Purify your mind ye double minded. “Blessed is the man that endureth temptations of his own lust.” (James 1:12,14)

Spread the teachings, Spread the Gospel.

Who has ears to hear, teach them.

Remember, God does not tempt any man, only the devil does this; so do not cast these “pearls” before non-seekers or they will turn against you and “rend you”. (Mtt 7:6)

Let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed, in doing; whereby we ought to forgo the things of this world to do love for our fallen brothers and sisters. God has helped us pull the mote out of our eye, now let us help our brothers and sisters pull the motes out of their eyes: spread these teachings far and wide.

Rise up from the dead and awaken those who sleep.

Watch for the soul injecting the idea into your mind, with feeling, that God is now leading you and to fully surrender to its control. God does not want you to surrender to his control; we are free-willed beings. God only wants to use us as a vehicle to find the others who are ready to return back home. God only wants to use us as a vehicle to speak through us in a way that is best for them.

Use the two-edged sword, the tongue, to spread the mystery of God that can pierce the soul, reveal its’ wiles, and eventually cleave it from the mind.

However, while these teachings are spreading around the earth, the devil and his followers will become very angry; but fear not, for they shall be kept busy, held in check by their own earthly affairs and thus unable to find the time to stop these teachings from spreading unto the Lost Sheep.

“By works, faith is made perfect. You see, by works a man is justified, and not by faith only: for as a body without the spirit is dead, do faith without works is dead.” (James 2:14-26) “For this is good in the sight of God our saviour, who will have ALL MEN be saved, to come unto the knowledge of the truth: for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, Jesus.” (1Titus 2:3-5)

“Call on the Father who, without the respect of persons, judgeth according to every man’s work. For God’s son …. gave to every man his work; and behold, I come quickly and my reward with me to give to every man according as his work shall be.” (Mark 13:34, 1Peter 1:17, Rev 22:12)

Faith without works is false. How could one be a member of Jesus’ Church and not work to find the lost sheep who have made themselves ready for the return home (Salvation)? Read the Parable of the Sower in Mark 4:3-20. How many can you find?

Be a stewart of the mystery of God. No one has seen this mystery by himself. No, not by our own efforts have we been able to see what the soul does not want us to see. The time has come to reveal the knowledge and open the peoples’ understanding that they may have Life again. Help those who are seeking after the truth but, as yet, have not found it.
“Freely you have received,
freely give.” _ Matthew 10:8

“Let your light (knowledge) so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. For whosoever hath (and gives) to him shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not (does not give) shall be taken away even that which he hath: and that unprofitable servant shall be cast into outer darkness where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For no man having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 5:16; 25:29-30; Luke 9:62)

Seek the Father; not because he will take you back home, but because you can help others to return home. Seek no reward, for no reward shall be given. We seek the Father so that we can learn how to help our brothers and sisters who are lost like we once were. We do not seek to perform miracles, phenomena, or power to do unusual things; such things help no one. For what does it profit a man to be physically healed, and remain a captive of the soul, will he not eventually get sick again and die, without having the opportunity to return home? Our first and foremost concern is to break the unrighteous soul-mind connection and form the righteous Father-mind connection, then we can show others the way.

Give freely, Jesus’ teachings which has been given freely to you, for this is doing the Will of the Father. Remember, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Bread of Life: seek, knock and ask.

Tell the clear message.
“God is Love.”

Be-come servants to God the Father. Be ye followers of God, his dear children. Be-come the servant of Righteousness. Be Jesus’ disciple. Be-come fishers of men. Confess Jesus before men. Be ye followers of that which is good. Be about your Father’s business. Be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven.

Do not be hypocrites. Judge not that ye be not judged. Be not called Rabbi, Father, etc., neither be called Master. Be not afraid of them that can kill the body, but after that there is no more they can do. Be not afraid, only believe. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Learn and apply Jesus’ teachings and you shall find rest from your soul. Who has ears to hear, share with these teachings of Jesus.
