Jesus The Pattern Son
A clear re-teaching of the Feast of First Fruits and the Feast of Weeks. Let’s just go through Leviticus 23 and cover the 7 feasts of the Lord, and the sabbath. We will find that there has been some confusion that First Fruits IS Shavuot/Pentecost.
Right where we first found out that we could become perfect, we are told how. Somehow, though, no one ever got around preaching about that. For some reason… or other?…. Ephesians 4:11&12 was always referenced as the primary was to become perfect.
Wow! This was a long time in coming, but it may be the most important episode. Preaching “death to self” or (surprise to me) more properly “The Crucified Life” as good news! Of utmost importance in terms of being saved, not losing your salvation,
We have heard many times: “That I may know Him….That if by any means, I might attain to the resurrection from the dead.” Let us unpack the Scripture, relying on Wuest. Going to the Greek does not change things; it helps us understand what was original...

Finishing out the “There is a Fine Line Between Sonship Doctrine and The ‘I Will Ascend’ Doctrine. Substituting ourselves for the unique, begotten Son, Jesus who is the Lord God is over the line and into the “I will ascend” doctrine.
Continuing our thought, we talk about thinking one is better than others simply because one has accepted the sonship message. Let’s keep the feast of unleavened bread. Let’s remember, Jesus is the firstfruits. We are in Him because of God’s grace,
