“Things That Go Bump In The Night” (The New Truth) (part two) Radio Program Transcript 9/1/10
2000 years ago, Jesus came to earth with a NEW TRUTH that would save the world. Many times as He tried to teach this New Truth to the people that were prepared, they were busy searching the scriptures. When they couldn’t find it written, they dismissed what Jesus was saying. Hosea 4:6 tells us that my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge I will also reject you.. We have to remember that we had a great fall in the Garden. We fell below the animals. Since that time, God has been trying to raise us up to be the children that He created us to be. So each stage in history, God have had to deal with us according to our spiritual intellectual level. He has taken us through the Old Testament, the formation stage where we had to go through animals sacrifices in order to reach God. Jesus came with the New Testament, the growth stage. We had to go through Jesus in order to reach God. Jesus came with the NEW TRUTH to bring us back into God’s direct dominion.
So let us go back in time and see what was happening Then, so we can learn not to repeat it Now. Jesus came to His own the Chosen people; the wise, the educated and the learned. They were worried that Jesus came to take away the Law. It said in Deuteronomy 4:2, Do not add to the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish it. (Take away). Also in (Proverb 30:6) The Bible said add not, to His words. Jesus told the chosen people in Matthew 5:17.., I didn’t come to do away with the law, and the prophets; but to give them the full meaning of the law. In other words, the formation stage had been completed, and God was ready to take them to another level of growth. Jesus came, not to teach what Moses had taught, but to bring NEW TRUTH. Jesus brought the new word of God. He wanted to tell them what God was saying RIGHT THEN!! He asked them to repent of their sins, so they could connect back to the word. Examples: In (Matthew 5:43-44) He said; You have heard that it was said, that you should Love your neighbors, and hate you enemies. BUT I tell you to love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you. ( Matt. 5:38) I know that you have heard and have been taught, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. BUT I tell you not to try to resist the evil man BUT if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other one too. (Matt. 5:21) You have heard that it was said to the men of old, you shall not kill. BUT I say unto you that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of judgment… The book of Matt. Is filled with Jesus’ NEW TEACHINGS to the chosen people. The scripture savvy Chief Priest, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, The Elders and the Scribes. None of these prepared people accepted Jesus and His teachings. Let’s look at the things Jesus said, and the way the chosen people understood it: Jesus said: He was the light of the world; the light that gives life. Chosen people: He is a liar.
Jesus said: Moses gave you the law, and you don’t obey that, so why do you want to kill me? Chosen people: Does He think that someone wants to kill Him, He’s crazy. Jesus said: If you obey my word you will never die. Chosen people: Now we are sure that He’s a demon. Abraham is dead, so are the prophets…. Is He greater than our father Abraham? Who does He think He is? It was like Jesus and the Chosen people were speaking two different languages. The Chosen people didn’t come to Jesus when they didn’t understand. Instead, they asked each other. It was like the blind leading the blind. Jesus said to His Disciples: (Mark 4:11). I explained the secrets about the Kingdom to you but to others, I can only use stories. Jesus saw that the people hearts was far from being humble. They continued to search the scriptures to find what Jesus was teaching. Jesus said to them: You search and investigate and pour over the scriptures diligently, because you suppose and trust that you have eternal life through them. And these very scriptures testify about me. (1Th. 2:15). The Jews killed both the Lord Jesus and the Prophets… Many things Jesus said 2000 years ago is found written in the Bible and we believe Him now; do we not? Very often, this truth is given to babes. (Matt. 11:25).
Every two thousand years something major happens in God’s providence. We see this scripture again in Revelation 22:18. In short, it tells us not to add. We are now in the Completed age testament, a stage of completion. ( spiritual Maturity) . God is taking us to another level which requires NEW TRUTH. Christians now are the prepared people, the chosen, the wise, the educated and the learned. We are again searching the scriptures. Some even tell us as we try to share this NEW TRUTH with them “If it isn’t in the Bible they don’t believe it”. Jesus said in John 16:12, I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t understand them now. John 21:23 said, if everything was written in details in the Bible ……the world itself couldn’t contain the books that would be written. In Isaiah 11:9…. For the earth shall be full of knowledge of the Lord as the waters covers the sea. It’s very obvious that God has many things that He wants us to know. If He had given it all to us in the formation stage, it would like giving kids in grade school, college material. (First the blade, then the ear, then the full corn).Change is not always easy, but it is necessary if we are to grow. We may not always understand, but we should have faith in the SON that God sends to save us which is now; True Parents. 2000 thousand years ago, Jesus was treated as a liar, a devil. and a antichrist. If we don’t wake up, we could repeat the horrible history.
