4 Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings ( Jeremiah 4)
11 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.
13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. (Genesis 17)
I remember great debates about what these scriptures were talking about. The debates were all about the flesh. It hinge on one verse , vs.12, eight days old, everyone thought that was referring to a baby. Not quite if you ascend the scriptures into the heavens. You will find in the spirit that there were 7 days of creation. What happened on the 8th day? That is when the man child decided to disobey God and created sexual immorality by uncovering the nakedness of woman. This is what it means to circumcise your heart and mind that there is one God and Christ lives within you. To many of you live in the flesh and have been taught that Christ will come back one day. He has already come once in the garden and the second time when you realize He lives within you. The next time God who created you will come to judge you. Keep your heart uncircumcised and follow the pagan religions and you are calling judgement down on yourself. Live in the flesh.
The next time you hear someone tell you that they are waiting for Christ to come back, Christ already came back where were you. He came back in the flesh what did you miss in the gospels.
Abraham it seems that he came from the city of Ur which is located in the valleys between the two great rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers, the land of the gods as it was called. He knew that Christ lived within him hence the term man-child. Come to me as a child. The Son of man who he was, that is who I am. I know Christ lives within me and I hear the voice of God because I ascended the scriptures into the heavens. My heart is circumcised.
So the man-child came out of the garden, the 8th day, and created temples and altars to his conception of gods and goddesses to hide his sexual immorality. He created temples and altars to the mother of god, Ishtar and requires everyone to pay oblations to a rock deity. The man child sat at the altars had sacred prostitution and everyone gave their sweetbreads and wines to the priest.
So as long as you read the scriptures descending you will always live in the flesh me I ascend the scriptures into the heavens to meet my creator when he takes me home. Wait for Christ, you are living in the flesh, Christ lives within all of us the first 7 days of your creation. It is on the 8th day you decided to follow your own dictates.
That is what this verse is saying to you in the Spirit.
9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil
6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) [1st Timothy. 3 ]
Condemnation of the devil— this is altars that you follow that slander the name of God. I know you church does not say these things. If they do not teach that Christ lives within you and you are waiting for Christ to come back, I beg to differ.
Faith in pure conscience— You realize that Christ lives in you, you circumcise your heart and mind to the reality of one creator, God created you, your heaven and earth, your world, Genesis the first 7 days. You in the 8th day condemed the woman, the man child and you saw her naked.
Novice— You are a person a child that has no faith, no conscience eg. I am waiting for Christ to return. [ no-vice]
Must [you] be
