Deu 22:8 – Part 2, The Final Three Milk Doctrines

[Study Aired January 1, 2021]

Deu 22:8  When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if any man fall from thence.

Last week we went over the scriptures which showed us that being up on the roof of a house, in a positive application, meant that we had been transfered from the ground in which we worship – our earth. We saw that to be on the ground is to see God from our earth and not from the heavens. Then we saw that building a “battlement” around the roof of our house so that people could not fall off was being careful with the liberty we have in Christ when it comes to babes in Christ. This led us to Hebrews chapter 5:12-6:3 where it says;

Heb 5:12  For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
Heb 5:13  For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
Heb 5:14  But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Heb 6:1  Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Heb 6:2  Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Heb 6:3  And this will we do, if God permit.

This took us to cover the first three “principles of the oracles of God” also known as “the principles of the doctrine of Christ”, repentance from dead works, faith toward God and the doctrine of baptisms. Today we will cover the last three, laying on of hands, resurrection from the dead and eternal judgment.

#4 – “the laying on of hands”

After Christ’s ascension into the clouds, of which clouds the elect represent:

Heb 12:1  Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses

He began to set up His kingdom in us, to build a new house in the promised land. That kingdom/house is made up of kings and priests who have been given the direct service from God by the “laying on of hands”.  The elders who are indwelt with the Spirit of God, which directs them to whom God the Father has chosen in Christ before the world began, are to be the stones that make up Christ’s body. This decision is not made in haste but being led of the Spirit to grant certain people the privilege to handle the word of God. We should never, and I am guilty of it, just willy-nilly allow anyone to enter the fellowship. They first should be taken to the word between you and them, to the web-site, and they should first be acquainted with what we believe. This process will weed out many who would only cause issues and cause us to go back over the same milk doctrines time and time again. When John saw the vision of Revelation, it says he FELL at Christ’s feet. This is very important because it shows he had been spiritually slain by what he had seen behind him:

Rev 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Rev 1:10  I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
Rev 1:11  Saying [to John inwardly], I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
Rev 1:12  And I turned to seerepented] the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw [after repentance we seeseven golden candlesticks; [within himself]
Rev 1:13  And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
Rev 1:14  His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
Rev 1:15  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
Rev 1:16  And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.
Rev 1:17  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me [put your name in there], Fear not; I am the first and the last: [Don’t fear, for I am the beginning and ending of your life]
Rev 1:18  I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Rev 1:19  Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
Rev 1:20  The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

He heard a GREAT VOICE, AS OF A TRUMPET. This voice said to him and is saying to us, “I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.”

Here I would like to quote from Mike’s study on the book of Revelation, on the word Asia and what it signifies;

So John was seeing the whole of the seven churches within himself, the whole apostatized church as one. Once he is given to hear, he turns to SEE, and what he is given to see in the midst of these seven churches, seven golden candlesticks, Christ, within himself, for the first time he is seeing himself as Christ, “clothed with [perfect tense-G5765] a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength” (Rev 1:13-16). Then what happens to him, to you and me, is we fall to the feet of Christ, DEAD. We see that there is nothing in us that can save us because we contain nothing in and of ourselves. He Who dwells in us is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and ending of everything we were, are or will be. When we are given to see this Christ has then…”laid his right hand upon me”, and when He lays His right hand upon us, He tells us:

Rev 1:17  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

Rev 1:18  I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Rev 1:19  Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
Rev 1:20  The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

The doctrine of laying on of hands is the truth that, unless we are given eyes to see and ears to hear, we are blind and Christ has not laid His right hand on us. We see because He has laid His hand upon me, to be tried in the fire, the second baptism.

This laying on of hands symbolizes the receiving of the Spirit of God to speak the truth about Who the Alpha and Omega is, was and will be in our lives.

Act 8:14  Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
Act 8:15  Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
Act 8:16  (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
Act 8:17  Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
Act 8:18  And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
Act 8:19  Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

So, we see that people can see the things of the spirit yet still not be indwelt with the spirit. They can receive the truth and yet not be indwelt with the spirit. They can taste of the heavenly things, be made partakers of the spirit by seeing some things, yet never indwelt by the spirit. They can be baptised with the water of the word, submersed in the truth and yet never be indwelt with the spirit of God, never be tried by fire.

Act 8:13  Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

Simon believed, but he had not yet been given the Spirit of God, which means he was not given the privilege to be judged by fire and only believed for the furtherance of the flesh.

Act 8:20  But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
Act 8:21  Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
Act 8:22  Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
Act 8:23  For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
Act 8:24  Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.
Act 8:25  And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.

Laying on of hands means we are not only baptised with water but are baptised with the burning fire of the Spirit of God. When this happens we can know that Christ has laid His right hand upon us and we enter the next 2 last stages together:

#4 – resurrection of the dead and
#5 – eternal judgment

As we are given to repent, have faith toward God, see the baptisms, have hands laid upon us, then comes the next two, which as the first four principles, go hand in hand, and we see that we cannot have one without the other. When we are given to see we are resurrected from the dead, we see we are entering into age-lasting judgment. So, what is the milk doctrine of the resurrection from the dead?

Jesus Christ lived a life of repentance, turning from the flesh, and giving God all the glory, for all things:

Mar 10:18  And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
Mat 26:52  Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
Mat 26:53  Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
Mat 26:54  But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

He was given, by the Father, to have faith toward the Father that all things were of the Father, and Christ’s life was created to bring forth praise to the Father.

Joh 5:36  But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

Joh 18:11  Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

From this truth He was baptized in the word, symbolized by the baptism at the Jordan, and then driven into the wilderness to be baptized by fire.

Luk 3:21  Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
Luk 3:22  And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
Luk 4:1  And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
Luk 4:2  Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

Luk 4:14  And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

After His second baptism, he was filled with the holy Spirit of God, and it is shown by His teaching.

Luk 4:15  And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.
Luk 4:16  And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.
Luk 4:17  And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
Luk 4:18  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luk 4:19  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Luk 4:20  And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
Luk 4:21  And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. [and this applies to us who are filled with the Spirit of God, today, the day of our resurrection from dead is these words fulfilled in our ears.]
Luk 4:22  And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son?

From there Christ shows by His life and words that the Father has laid His hands upon Christ to preach the word, in season and out of season. Whatever state in which God has you, you will be prepared to preach the word.

2Ti 4:1  I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2Ti 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

He lives His life until His life is sacrificed for the truth and He is crucified. Because He lived His life without iniquity, the grave could not hold Him, and He is resurrected from the dead. This is what John saw when he looked behind him. He saw all his life before him, all his sin, all his false doctrine, and still, standing in the middle, was the Son of God. He saw that Christ was the Alpha and Omega of his life and that Christ was the beginning and ending of his life, he falls down dead and is resurrected from the dead carnal mind that believed he was a god independant from The God.

From that day forward John/us who have experienced these first principles of the oracles of God/ the principles of the doctrine of Christ, walk in aionian (age-lasting) judgment, which means we are judged daily, hourly, minute by minute by the fire of the spirit of God. This spirit of God which is given to us as tongues of fire, exposes everything there is to expose about us.

Act 2:3  And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
Act 2:4  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 

We no longer see ourselves as free moral agents that make freewill choices of our own but as Christ, living out a life that is for the glory of God. We see that living this life is living a life of constant judgment, aionian (age-lasting) judgment, because the spirit of God exposes everything the carnal mind thinks. We see that there is no literal place where we are tortured for not believing what we could not believe but a beautiful place where we walk in the fire. We have a place of privilege where we are judged in this age so we can be used to bring the rest of mankind to the truth in the lake of fire, just like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego – first inwardly, then outwardly.

Dan 3:23  And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.
Dan 3:24  Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.
Dan 3:25  He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

When we are given these principles of the doctrine of Christ and go through the fire every day, we are walking in the fire with the Son of God, for we are indwelt with His Spirit. From there the man of Sin, represented by Nebuchadnezzar and all his kingdom, is brought into subjection to the truth that is walking in us. This is what will happen in the lake of fire to all of mankind, when we show them Who the Father is, was and will be. Listen and see these next few verses inwardly first and then outwardly. Do not concentrate on the outward, but on the inward, for when we concentrate on the outward we are acting as Simon, who wanted the power over others. When we are given to see the inward, the outward is just as evident.

Dan 3:26  Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.
Dan 3:27  And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together [all the nations and doctrines in us and then outwardly in the lake of fire], saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power [the second death has no power because we are judged in this age], nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.
Dan 3:28  Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel [the comforter – John 16:7], and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.
Dan 3:29  Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort. 
Dan 3:30  Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.

The truth of our repentance from dead works, of faith towards God, of the baptisms of water and fire we must go through, of how Christ has laid His hands upon us to preach the gospel, leads to see our carnal man as dead and the new man being resurrected daily to walk in the fire of the judgment of the flesh. This truth seals us to see that we are the sons of God NOW, and we are being created to bring the rest of the world into the knowledge of the truth in the lake of fire. Now, having these milk doctrines, let us GO ONTO PERFECTION, not laying again these principals but BUILDING UPON them. Why?

Heb 6:3  And this will we do, if God permit.
Heb 6:4  For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
Heb 6:5  And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
Heb 6:6  If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Heb 6:7  For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:
Heb 6:8  But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

The falling away is as our study started, falling from on high from the roof (the truth) back to the ground, where all you see is outward, future tense and how you will be delivered to rule over those wicked people. If all we bring forth in this life is thorns and briars that grow from our tree, those pricks of religion that focuses OUTWARDLY to poke those who walk by, after all the water that has come upon us, then we are meant for the very fire we profess we are escaping. We have not been indwelt with the Spirit of God which burns up our thorns and briers in this age. We have been swimming around in the water of Jordan but were never dragged to the wilderness to be judged. The Babylon we are given to rule in this age centers on the future and the glory they will get when they hand Christ all their good works. Babylon will never make it there because those works are cankered and rotten with the foul smell of the dead flesh in which they live.

Mat 7:21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

If we are not repenting from the self-righteous flesh in this age, being led by the faith of Christ to trust in God the Father, being baptised by water and fire, having Christ’s hands laid on us daily to speak the truth, resurrecting from the dead carnal mind which sees everything outwardly, then we do not know what it means to be judged in this age. These are principles of the doctrine of Christ, the first principles of the oracles of God that Christ walked in and is allowing us to walk in. Now, may we build upon these truths into a mature body where we are not tossed to and fro by the winds of the world. May God grant us these truths so that we build upon this foundation that Christ laid for us.

Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children [in need of milk], tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Eph 4:15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Eph 4:16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

If we have these truths, then we have built a battlement around the roof of the new house Christ is building, where no one can fall off, back to the ground.
