The Urantia Book

PAPER 121. The Times of [Jesus Christ] Michael's Bestowal, Cont.

8. Previous Written Records

[Paper:Section.Paragraph numbers]

121:8.1 As far as possible, consistent with our mandate, we have endeavored to utilize and to some extent co-ordinate the existing records having to do with the life of Jesus on Urantia. Although we have enjoyed access to the lost record of the Apostle Andrew and have benefited from the collaboration of a vast host of celestial beings who were on earth during the times of [Jesus Christ] Michael’s bestowal (notably his now Personalized Adjuster), it has been our purpose also to make use of the so-called Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

121:8.2 These New Testament records had their origin in the following circumstances:

121:8.3 #1. The Gospel by Mark. John Mark wrote the earliest (excepting the notes of Andrew), briefest, and most simple record of Jesus’ life. He presented the Master as a minister, as man among men. Although Mark was a lad lingering about many of the scenes which he depicts, his record is in reality the Gospel according to Simon Peter. He was early associated with Peter; later with Paul. Mark wrote this record at the instigation of Peter and on the earnest petition of the church at Rome. Knowing how consistently the Master refused to write out his teachings when on earth and in the flesh, Mark, like the apostles and other leading disciples, was hesitant to put them in writing. But Peter felt the church at Rome required the assistance of such a written narrative, and Mark consented to undertake its preparation. He made many notes before Peter died in A.D. 67, and in accordance with the outline approved by Peter and for the church at Rome, he began his writing soon after Peter’s death. The Gospel was completed near the end of A.D. 68. Mark wrote entirely from his own memory and Peter’s memory. The record has since been considerably changed, numerous passages having been taken out and some later matter added at the end to replace the latter one fifth of the original Gospel, which was lost from the first manuscript before it was ever copied. This record by Mark, in conjunction with Andrew’s and Matthew’s notes, was the written basis of all subsequent Gospel narratives which sought to portray the life and teachings of Jesus.

121:8.4 #2. The Gospel of Matthew. The so-called Gospel according to Matthew is the record of the Master’s life which was written for the edification of Jewish Christians. The author of this record constantly seeks to show in Jesus’ life that much which he did was that “it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet.” Matthew’s Gospel portrays Jesus as a son of David, picturing him as showing great respect for the law and the prophets.

121:8.5 The Apostle Matthew did not write this Gospel. It was written by Isador, one of his disciples, who had as a help in his work not only Matthew’s personal remembrance of these events but also a certain record which the latter had made of the sayings of Jesus directly after the crucifixion. This record by Matthew was written in Aramaic; Isador wrote in Greek. There was no intent to deceive in accrediting the production to Matthew. It was the custom in those days for pupils thus to honor their teachers.

121:8.6 Matthew’s original record was edited and added to in A.D. 40 just before he left Jerusalem to engage in evangelistic preaching. It was a private record, the last copy having been destroyed in the burning of a Syrian monastery in A.D. 416.

121:8.7 Isador escaped from Jerusalem in A.D. 70 after the investment of the city by the armies of Titus, taking with him to Pella a copy of Matthew’s notes. In the year 71, while living at Pella, Isador wrote the Gospel according to Matthew. He also had with him the first four fifths of Mark’s narrative.

121:8.8 #3. The Gospel by Luke. Luke, the physician of Antioch in Pisidia, was a gentile convert of Paul, and he wrote quite a different story of the Master’s life. He began to follow Paul and learn of the life and teachings of Jesus in A.D. 47. Luke preserves much of the “grace of the Lord Jesus Christ” in his record as he gathered up these facts from Paul and others. Luke presents the Master as “the friend of publicans and sinners.” He did not formulate his many notes into the Gospel until after Paul’s death. Luke wrote in the year 82 in Achaia. He planned three books dealing with the history of Christ and Christianity but died in A.D. 90 just before he finished the second of these works, the “Acts of the Apostles.”

121:8.9 As material for the compilation of his Gospel, Luke first depended upon the story of Jesus’ life as Paul had related it to him. Luke’s Gospel is, therefore, in some ways the Gospel according to Paul. But Luke had other sources of information. He not only interviewed scores of eyewitnesses to the numerous episodes of Jesus’ life which he records, but he also had with him a copy of Mark’s Gospel, that is, the first four fifths, Isador’s narrative, and a brief record made in the year A.D. 78 at Antioch by a believer named Cedes. Luke also had a mutilated and much-edited copy of some notes purported to have been made by the Apostle Andrew.

121:8.10 #4. The Gospel of John. The Gospel according to John relates much of Jesus’ work in Judea and around Jerusalem which is not contained in the other records. This is the so-called Gospel according to John the son of Zebedee, and though John did not write it, he did inspire it. Since its first writing it has several times been edited to make it appear to have been written by John himself. When this record was made, John had the other Gospels, and he saw that much had been omitted; accordingly, in the year A.D. 101 he encouraged his associate, Nathan, a Greek Jew from Caesarea, to begin the writing. John supplied his material from memory and by reference to the three records already in existence. He had no written records of his own. The Epistle known as “First John” was written by John himself as a covering letter for the work which Nathan executed under his direction.

121:8.11 All these writers presented honest pictures of Jesus as they saw, remembered, or had learned of him, and as their concepts of these distant events were affected by their subsequent espousal of Paul’s theology of Christianity. And these records, imperfect as they are, have been sufficient to change the course of the history of Urantia for almost two thousand years.

PAPER 122. Birth and Infancy of Jesus

4. Joseph's Dream

122:4.4 Most of the so-called Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament were made to apply to Jesus long after his life had been lived on earth. For centuries the Hebrew prophets had proclaimed the coming of a deliverer, and these promises had been construed by successive generations as referring to a new Jewish ruler [a militant warrior-king that our universe Sovereign Savior Jesus Christ absolutely and eternally refused to do !] who would sit upon the throne of David and, by the reputed miraculous methods of Moses, proceed to establish the Jews in Palestine as a powerful nation, free from all foreign domination. Again, many figurative passages found throughout the Hebrew scriptures were subsequently misapplied to the life mission of Jesus. Many Old Testament sayings were so distorted as to appear to fit some episode of the Master’s earth life. Jesus himself onetime publicly denied any connection with the royal house of David. Even the passage, “a maiden shall bear a son,” was made to read, “a virgin shall bear a son.” This was also true of the many genealogies of both Joseph and Mary which were constructed subsequent to [Jesus Christ] Michael’s career on earth. Many of these lineages contain much of the Master’s ancestry, but on the whole they are not genuine and may not be depended upon as factual. The early followers of Jesus all too often succumbed to the temptation to make all the olden prophetic utterances appear to find fulfillment in the life of their Lord and Master.

5. Jesus' Earth Parents

122:5.4 From Joseph [the human father of Jesus' physical body] Jesus secured his strict training in the usages of the Jewish ceremonials and his unusual acquaintance with the Hebrew scriptures; from Mary he derived a broader viewpoint of religious life and a more liberal concept of personal spiritual freedom.

PAPER 123. The Early Childhood of Jesus

0. Introduction

123:0.3 Throughout the two years of their sojourn at Alexandria, Jesus enjoyed good health and continued to grow normally. Aside from a few friends and relatives no one was told about Jesus’ being a “child of promise.” One of Joseph’s relatives revealed this to a few friends in Memphis, descendants of the distant Ikhnaton, and they, with a small group of Alexandrian believers, assembled at the palatial home of Joseph’s relative-benefactor a short time before the return to Palestine to wish the Nazareth family well and to pay their respects to the child. On this occasion the assembled friends presented Jesus with a complete copy of the Greek translation of the Hebrew scriptures. But this copy of the Jewish sacred writings was not placed in Joseph’s hands until both he and Mary had finally declined the invitation of their Memphis and Alexandrian friends to remain in Egypt. These believers insisted that the child of destiny would be able to exert a far greater world influence as a resident of Alexandria than of any designated place in Palestine. These persuasions delayed their departure for Palestine for some time after they received the news of Herod’s death.

3. Events of the Sixth Year (1 B.C.)

123:3.1 Already, with his mother’s help, Jesus had mastered the Galilean dialect of the Aramaic tongue; and now his father began teaching him Greek. Mary spoke little Greek, but Joseph was a fluent speaker of both Aramaic and Greek. The textbook for the study of the Greek language was the copy of the Hebrew scriptures — a complete version of the law and the prophets, including the Psalms — which had been presented to them on leaving Egypt. There were only two complete copies of the Scriptures in Greek in all Nazareth, and the possession of one of them by the carpenter’s family made Joseph’s home a much-sought place and enabled Jesus, as he grew up, to meet an almost endless procession of earnest students and sincere truth seekers. Before this year ended, Jesus had assumed custody of this priceless manuscript, having been told on his sixth birthday that the sacred book had been presented to him by Alexandrian friends and relatives. And in a very short time he could read it readily.

5. School Days in Nazareth

123:5.3 At Nazareth the pupils sat on the floor in a semicircle, while their teacher, the chazan, an officer of the synagogue, sat facing them. Beginning with the Book of Leviticus, they passed on to the study of the other books of the law, followed by the study of the Prophets and the Psalms. The Nazareth synagogue possessed a complete copy of the Scriptures in Hebrew. Nothing but the Scriptures was studied prior to the twelfth year. In the summer months the hours for school were greatly shortened.

123:5.4 Jesus early became a master of Hebrew, and as a young man, when no visitor of prominence happened to be sojourning in Nazareth, he would often be asked to read the Hebrew scriptures to the faithful assembled in the synagogue at the regular Sabbath services.

PAPER 124. The Later Childhood of Jesus

3. The Eleventh Year (A.D. 5)

124:3.5 The chazan spent one evening each week with Jesus, helping him to master the Hebrew scriptures. He was greatly interested in the progress of his promising pupil; therefore was he willing to assist him in many ways. This Jewish pedagogue exerted a great influence upon this growing mind, but he was never able to comprehend why Jesus was so indifferent to all his suggestions regarding the prospects of going to Jerusalem to continue his education under the learned rabbis. [Jesus properly refused to be taught spiritual Truth by any "rabbi". Jesus Christ is the Living Truth of and as God to us ! He is the Creator of all humans in our local universe !]

PAPER 125. Jesus at Jerusalem

125. Jesus at Jerusalem

125:6.2 Again he journeyed to the temple, but he did not pause to meditate at the brow of Olivet. In the course of the morning’s discussions much time was devoted to the law and the prophets, and the teachers were astonished that Jesus was so familiar with the Scriptures, in Hebrew as well as Greek. But they were amazed not so much by his knowledge of truth as by his youth. [at age twelve years then !]

PAPER 126. The Two Crucial Years

0. Introduction

126:0.4 The story of his exploits among the wise men of the temple in Jerusalem was gratifying to all Nazareth, especially to his former teachers in the synagogue school. For a time his praise was on everybody’s lips. All the village recounted his childhood wisdom and praiseworthy conduct and predicted that he was destined to become a great leader in Israel; at last a really great teacher was to come out of Nazareth in Galilee. And they all looked forward to the time when he would be fifteen years of age so that he might be permitted regularly to read the Scriptures in the synagogue on the Sabbath day.

2. The Death of Joseph

126:2.6 This year it became the custom for the neighbors to drop in during the winter evenings to hear Jesus play upon the harp, to listen to his stories (for the lad was a master storyteller), and to hear him read from the Greek scriptures.

3. The Fifteenth Year (A.D. 9

126:3.6 In the course of this year Jesus found a passage in the so-called Book of Enoch which influenced him in the later adoption of the term “Son of Man” as a designation for his bestowal mission on Urantia. He had thoroughly considered the idea of the Jewish Messiah and was firmly convinced that he was not to be that Messiah. He longed to help his father’s people, but he never expected to lead Jewish armies in overthrowing the foreign domination of Palestine. He knew he would never sit on the throne of David at Jerusalem. Neither did he believe that his mission was that of a spiritual deliverer or moral teacher solely to the Jewish people. In no sense, therefore, could his life mission be the fulfillment of the intense longings and supposed Messianic prophecies of the Hebrew scriptures; at least, not as the Jews understood these predictions of the prophets. Likewise he was certain he was never to appear as the Son of Man depicted by the Prophet Daniel.

126:3.8 While turning all these problems over in his mind, he found in the synagogue library at Nazareth, among the apocalyptic books which he had been studying, this manuscript called “The Book of Enoch”; and though he was certain that it had not been written by Enoch of old, it proved very intriguing to him, and he read and reread it many times. There was one passage which particularly impressed him, a passage in which this term “Son of Man” appeared. The writer of this so-called Book of Enoch went on to tell about this Son of Man, describing the work he would do on earth and explaining that this Son of Man, before coming down on this earth to bring salvation to mankind, had walked through the courts of heavenly glory with his Father, the Father of all; and that he had turned his back upon all this grandeur and glory to come down on earth to proclaim salvation to needy mortals. As Jesus would read these passages (well understanding that much of the Eastern mysticism which had become admixed with these teachings was erroneous), he responded in his heart and recognized in his mind that of all the Messianic predictions of the Hebrew scriptures and of all the theories about the Jewish deliverer, none was so near the truth as this story tucked away in this only partially accredited Book of Enoch; and he then and there decided to adopt as his inaugural title “the Son of Man.” And this he did when he subsequently began his public work. Jesus had an unerring ability for the recognition of truth, and truth he never hesitated to embrace, no matter from what source it appeared to emanate.

126:3.10 The great confusion of Jesus’ younger days now arose. Having settled something about the nature of his mission on earth, “to be about his Father’s business” — to show forth his Father’s loving nature to all mankind — he began to ponder anew the many statements in the Scriptures referring to the coming of a national deliverer, a Jewish teacher or king. To what event did these prophecies refer? Was not he a Jew? or was he? Was he or was he not of the house of David? His mother averred he was; his father had ruled that he was not. He decided he was not. But had the prophets confused the nature and mission of the Messiah?

4. First Sermon in the Synagogue

126:4.1 With the coming of his fifteenth birthday, Jesus could officially occupy the synagogue pulpit on the Sabbath day. Many times before, in the absence of speakers, Jesus had been asked to read the Scriptures, but now the day had come when, according to law, he could conduct the service. Therefore on the first Sabbath after his fifteenth birthday the chazan arranged for Jesus to conduct the morning service of the synagogue. And when all the faithful in Nazareth had assembled, the young man, having made his selection of Scriptures, stood up and began to read:

126:4.2 “The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the meek, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to set the spiritual prisoners free; to proclaim the year of God’s favor and the day of our God’s reckoning; to comfort all mourners, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy in the place of mourning, a song of praise instead of the spirit of sorrow, that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, wherewith he may be glorified.

126:4.3 “Seek good and not evil that you may live, and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you. Hate the evil and love the good; establish judgment in the gate. Perhaps the Lord God will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.

126:4.4 “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil and learn to do good; seek justice, relieve the oppressed. Defend the fatherless and plead for the widow.

126:4.5 “Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, to bow myself before the Lord of all the earth? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, ten thousands of sheep, or with rivers of oil? Shall I give my first-born for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? No! for the Lord has showed us, O men, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you but to deal justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God?

126:4.6 “To whom, then, will you liken God who sits upon the circle of the earth? Lift up your eyes and behold who has created all these worlds, who brings forth their host by number and calls them all by their names. He does all these things by the greatness of his might, and because he is strong in power, not one fails. He gives power to the weak, and to those who are weary he increases strength. Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness, for I am the Lord your God. And I will hold your right hand, saying to you, fear not, for I will help you.

126:4.7 “And you are my witness, says the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen that all may know and believe me and understand that I am the Eternal. I, even I, am the Lord, and beside me there is no savior.”

126:4.8 And when he had thus read, he sat down, and the people went to their homes, pondering over the words which he had so graciously read to them. Never had his townspeople seen him so magnificently solemn; never had they heard his voice so earnest and so sincere; never had they observed him so manly and decisive, so authoritative.

5. The Financial Struggle

126:5.6 Fearing that the copy of the Greek scriptures might be discovered and confiscated by the tax collectors, Jesus, on his fifteenth birthday, presented it to the Nazareth synagogue library as his maturity offering to the Lord.

PAPER 127. The Adolescent Years

3. The Eighteenth Year (A.D. 12)

127:3.8 Several times a year, when visitors were not present thus to function, Jesus continued to read the Sabbath scriptures at the synagogue and many times offered comments on the lesson, but usually he so selected the passages that comment was unnecessary. He was skillful, so arranging the order of the reading of the various passages that the one would illuminate the other. He never failed, weather permitting, to take his brothers and sisters out on Sabbath afternoons for their nature strolls.

PAPER 128. Jesus' Early Manhood

5. The Twenty-Fourth Year (A.D. 18)

128:5.9 When at home, he continued to teach the evening school three times a week, read the Scriptures often in the synagogue on the Sabbath, visited with his mother, taught the children, and in general conducted himself as a worthy and respected citizen of Nazareth in the commonwealth of Israel.

PAPER 130. On the Way to Rome

3. At Alexandria

130:3.4 By the fourth hour after landing they [Jesus traveled for about two years visiting several Gentile countries in the Middle East with two rich merchants from India, Gonod and his son Ganid. This is in the "missing years of Jesus in the Bible when He was ages 12-30] were settled near the eastern end of the long and broad avenue, one hundred feet wide and five miles long, which stretched on out to the western limits of this city of one million people. After the first survey of the city’s chief attractions — university (museum), library, the royal mausoleum of Alexander, the palace, temple of Neptune, theater, and gymnasium — Gonod addressed himself to business while Jesus and Ganid went to the library, the greatest in the world. Here were assembled nearly a million manuscripts from all the civilized world: Greece, Rome, Palestine, Parthia, India, China, and even Japan. In this library Ganid saw the largest collection of Indian literature in all the world; and they spent some time here each day throughout their stay in Alexandria. Jesus told Ganid about the translation of the Hebrew scriptures into Greek at this place. And they discussed again and again all the religions of the world, Jesus endeavoring to point out to this young mind the truth in each, always adding: “But Yahweh is the God developed from the revelations of Melchizedek and the covenant of Abraham. The Jews were the offspring of Abraham and subsequently occupied the very land wherein Melchizedek had lived and taught, and from which he sent teachers to all the world; and their religion eventually portrayed a clearer recognition of the Lord God of Israel as the Universal Father in heaven than any other world religion.” [until Jesus Christ Incarnate came and Revealed New Truths about God the Universal Father on Paradise and here in Spirit and indwelling all truth-seeking humans everywhere !]

8. On the Way to Naples and Rome

130:8.2 At Syracuse they spent a full week. The notable event of their stop here was the rehabilitation of Ezra, the backslidden Jew, who kept the tavern where Jesus and his companions stopped. Ezra was charmed by Jesus’ approach and asked him to help him come back to the faith of Israel. He expressed his hopelessness by saying, “I want to be a true son of Abraham, but I cannot find God.” Said Jesus: “If you truly want to find God, that desire is in itself evidence that you have already found him. Your trouble is not that you cannot find God, for the Father has already found you; your trouble is simply that you do not know God. Have you not read in the Prophet Jeremiah, ‘You shall seek me and find me when you shall search for me with all your heart’? And again, does not this same prophet say: ‘And I will give you a heart to know me, that I am the Lord, and you shall belong to my people, and I will be your God’? And have you not also read in the Scriptures where it says: ‘He looks down upon men, and if any will say: I have sinned and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not, then will God deliver that man’s soul from darkness, and he shall see the light’?” And Ezra found God and to the satisfaction of his soul. Later, this Jew, in association with a well-to-do Greek proselyte, built the first Christian church in Syracuse.

PAPER 135. John the Baptist

3. The Forty Days

135:3.3 John was never able completely to rise above the confusion produced by what he had heard from his parents concerning Jesus and by these passages which he read in the Scriptures. In Daniel he read: “I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of Man came with the clouds of heaven, and there was given him dominion and glory and a kingdom.” But these words of the prophet did not harmonize with what his parents had taught him. Neither did his talk with Jesus, at the time of his visit when he was eighteen years old, correspond with these statements of the Scriptures. Notwithstanding this confusion, throughout all of his perplexity his mother assured him that his distant cousin, Jesus of Nazareth, was the true Messiah, [No, Jesus is much more !] that he had come to sit on the throne of David, [No. Never !] and that he (John) was to become his advance herald [Yes.] and chief support. [No. God is Jesus' Chief support, then, now and eternally !]

5. The Kingdom of God

135:5.4 While the Jews differed greatly in their estimates of the nature of the coming kingdom, they were alike in their belief that the event was impending, near at hand, even at the door. Many who read the Old Testament literally looked expectantly for a new king in Palestine, for a regenerated Jewish nation delivered from its enemies and presided over by the successor of King David, the Messiah who would quickly be acknowledged as the rightful and righteous ruler of all the world. [Never.] Another, though smaller, group of devout Jews held a vastly different view of this kingdom of God. They taught that the coming kingdom was not of this world, that the world was approaching its certain end, and that “a new heaven and a new earth” were to usher in the establishment of the kingdom of God; that this kingdom was to be an everlasting dominion, that sin was to be ended, and that the citizens of the new kingdom were to become immortal in their enjoyment of this endless bliss. [This New "Kingdom of God" in Jesus is at hand; but humans with sacred freewill, (volition,) will not be able to achieve Paradise Spirit Perfection for maybe a trillion more years of continual soul and Spirit Ascension up through a huge number of high and higher Heavens - Spiritual Spheres -- and then, final and eternal Paradise Residence, and further cosmic adventures without end in loving and doing God's will !]

THE FATHER-SON-SPIRIT TRINITY SOVEREIGNTY OF JESUS CHRIST


The Trinity Sovereignty (Rule) of Jesus Christ
The Resurrected Jesus Christ.

Art Above: Our Resurrected Master Jesus Christ.
This was freely provided by the Church of Jesus Christ (LDS)



When Jesus had finished his earth life, this name of the Father had been so revealed that the Master, who was the Father incarnate, could truly say:

I AM the Bread of Life.
I AM the Living Water.
I AM the Light of the world.
I AM the Desire of all ages.
I AM the Open Door to eternal salvation.
I AM the Reality of endless life.
I AM the Good Shepherd.
I AM the Pathway of Infinite perfection.
I AM the Resurrection and the Life.
I AM the Secret of eternal survival.
I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
I AM the Infinite Father of my finite Children.
I AM the True Vine; You are the Branches.
I AM the Hope of all who know the Living Truth.
I AM the Living Bridge from one world to another.
I AM the Living Link between time and eternity.

Thus did Jesus enlarge the Living Revelation of the name of God to all generations. As Divine love reveals the nature of God, eternal Truth discloses His Name in ever-enlarging proportions.

From sacred personal spiritual experiences in God and in Jesus, in 1977 and forevermore, Brother Dave adds these ongoing truths:

I AM the Universal Father of infinite love.
I AM the Eternal Son of saving grace and lavish mercy.
I AM the Holy Father-Son-Spirit of Truth of unending Ministry to all.
I AM One in Spirit upon all Humans; You each and all are now called to be One Brotherhood in Me.
I AM Your Father; You are My Beloved Son ...

Thank You, my God and Father-Son Jesus, for coming way down here, from Your Eternal, Divine Perfection Spheres of Glory, to briefly Incarnate as an nearly obscure "Babe of Bethlehem" -- to surely (eventually) bring us all into Your True and Pure Light and Life !
Thank You for the Gift of final Paradise peace - even Your peace ...



QUESTION: How is this Pure Christians Led By Jesus or Jesusonian Christians group or church different from other Christian churches?


ANSWER by Teacher Brother Dave: First of all, we are personally God-conscious Jesusonian Christians who do not have a church. Some of us choose to have a Home Church or Christian Fellowship Group in our homes. They all choose their independent names. We do not follow any human Theologian, minister, or priest; we choose to follow our Sovereign Savior Jesus Christ Who is fully here as He the Father-Son Spirit of Truth and One with the ever-present Holy Spirit. We also each have, as all normal humans do have, the pure spirit Essence of God the Universal Father within us. Thus we are led by God Transcendent and Immanent, and They are One in Spirit and Eternal purpose. Thus we are fully trans-ecclesiastical and trans-denominational. We believe in ever-continuing Revelation, both Epochal-Revelation and auto-Revelation (personal Revelation). We have no central human organization, no tithes, no dues. No rigid, dogmatic, crystallized "creeds" or fixed "doctrines".

However, I will briefly list a few differences we all tend to believe: We are eclectic in selecting the most true and spiritual Bible verses. I tend to use the Gospel of John far more than any of the other books in the Bible. I stress John 1:1-18; 12:31-32, chapters 16 and 17 the most. I choose to reject much of the Old Testament as being inferior in it's portrayal of the true, loving and merciful nature of God. The two Isaiah prophets do have some more spiritual and better views of God than most other Old Testament books. Isa 9:6 is a true reference to Jesus Christ. We do not believe in a literal hell and do not believe in blood atonement doctrines. Jesus Christ will draw all humans after their physical death up for a final loving and merciful judgment John 12:32. Those humans who then absolutely and finally reject the salvation Plan of Jesus will then be instantly and painlessly extinguished forevermore. That is the "second death" or "final death" mentioned in the Bible.

If you want to know what I, and many, but not all Jesusonian Christians believe, please peruse the several thousand pages of Theology and spirituality and personal testimony on this website. Word Search our large website here with our advanced Word Search Tool above. You may also email me Dave(at)PureChristians.org if you wish to ask questions or to contribute some of your own text, music or any multimedia materials to this website. Freely we seek and receive Truth in Spirit and freely we share in the loving Spirit of our Master Jesus Christ.

CURRENT NEWS ISSUES OF SPIRITUAL IMPORTANCE

THERE ARE NO "END TIMES" ! See Eph 3:21 Glory to God and Jesus ! "World without end". And several places in the Bible where it states that God has established this world in his loving care; and this earth shall abide forever ! This is the planet upon which our Creator Son of God Jesus Christ won unconditional Sovereignty here in this universe of his making ! Only false human beliefs here are having sudden "end times". The end of errors and fears is now at hand !

NO "APOCALYPSE" ! (in the sense of bad things here to happen) There are just ever continuing epochal- and auto-Revelations by He the Spirit of Truth WHO IS JESUS always here in Spirit upon all humans worldwide ! See John 16:7-16

NO "ARMAGEDDON" In Jesus IT IS FINISHED ! See Rev 21:3-7 and others. JESUS WON in AD30 and forevermore ! This word "Armageddon" only appears one time in the Bible; and Jesus never mentioned that ! Actually, about 300,000 years ago, there was a local battle in N. Africa, named "Armageddon" that did destroy two races of mankind there over 95%. But the number of humans on this planet and in this large universe continues to steadily increase -- to infinity -- no problem; as God is Infinite and His Paradise Home is Infinite in size; and God also has Divine Capacity to support an infinity of infinite sized universes and beyond.

TRUE GOOD NEWS !! (and on all human "fear trips")

FOLLOW JESUS HERE NOW IN SPIRIT AND FEAR NOT !

BE OF GOOD CHEER ! REJOICE ! AMEN !

PEACE AND PROGRESS, Teacher-Brother Dave

over 80% of modern war deaths are CIVILIANS

"Veterans' Day" November 11, 2015

On Veterans' Day, we honor our soldiers who served in combat. Many were terribly hurt or physically killed. In recent years, more recognition is being given to the larger number of Civilian casualties. We should remember to pray to our loving Father God, to honor all humans hurt or killed in man-made wars. All humans are destined to be with God and Jesus Christ in Paradise !

WORLD WAR ! OUR BATTLE CRY !

JESUS' Rule of War: Love your enemies,
do good to them, and make them your friends !

JESUS' Battle Cry: Peace on Earth and goodwill to all Persons !
(including all Children, Men and Women - as ALL are
Divinely Beloved sons of God in Jesus here in Spirit !)

Guerrilla wars/terrorism will not be stopped by mere bombs and guns;
only by many good Human hearts serving in the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
love-calling our Brothers into the Family of God.

Love, peace and progress,
Teacher-Brother Dave

His Spirit Within You

When you feel trapped and hopeless and you're looking to find a way out

All that seems to surround you are worldly fears, troubles, and doubts

When you realize how you've been living is not what life is all about

After all the years that you have wandered around, all alone and without


There is hope in the word of God that will forever ring so true

Fix your thoughts and eyes on the One who will always pull you through

Let Him into your broken life and that's all you have to do

Just abide in Him and be filled with joy with His Spirit within you


Then you will see joy in the morning and there will peace in your soul at night

There will still be trials and tribulations but He will make them turn out right

You will see where once there was darkness and you will be led by His guiding light

No longer led astray or blinded by the world, you now walk with spirituaI sight


Fill your life with His Holy word and tell others what He has done for you

Share your blessings with everyone and see what His words of truth will do

Let the world always see Him in you and how He made your life anew

Just abide in Him and be filled with joy with His Spirit within you


There is hope in the word of God that will forever ring so true

Fix your thoughts and eyes on the One who will always pull you through

Let Him into your broken life and that's all you have to do

Just abide in Him and be filled with joy with His Spirit within you
