Jesus prayed that all who would believe in Him would be one, sanctified (set apart) by the truth.
In the beginning, Jesus’ disciples loved one another following His example in one baptism, the remembrance of His death, and the washing of feet. And all drank of one spirit, the spirit of truth, the spirit of God.
Jesus instructed His disciples to “make disciples of all nations… teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.” But within 150 years, new teachings, including the observance of Easter, were declared as “doctrines” of the Church to Emperor. The Church was no longer united by the example of Jesus and His teachings.
The Abomination of Desolation
In 193, the Bishop of Rome wrote letters of excommunication to the churches of Asia because they disagreed on the observance of Easter, and the evidence of the holy spirit, the spirit of truth, was taken from the Church.
The saints were given into the hand of the Antichrist for time, times and half a time, 3 1/2 years, or 1278 days, as years, from 193 until 1471, when the first Protestant Denomination broke free from the Papacy.
Did you know that today only those who obey The Gospel of Jesus Christ receive the comfort of the holy spirit, the spirit of truth, as evidenced by the tongue emitting sound, laleo glossa?
By His spirit, God is showing the way to unity, “that the world may believe that You sent Me.”
“in their setting of their threshold by My threshold, and their door-post beside My door-post, there was the wall between Me and them” – Ezekiel 43:8
Those who receive the Spirit of Christ are born again, but the Spirit of God is only in the Sanctified Church, the Body of Christ.
Ezekiel prophesied that the end time Sanctified Church established in the East, would eventually enter “the sea.”
Peter told us the Spirit of Christ was in the prophets. John told us that the Spirit of Christ was “the Word” in the prophets.
Zechariah said that a “flying scroll” the size of a living space, would enter houses all across the world, in the last days.
The Spirit of Christ was called “the Spirit,” more than 70 times in the New Testament.
