And I feel sorry for people who worship the bible, turn it into an idol, listen to yourself Christianity is useless without God, without Christ,
without the Holy Spirit When Jesus walked with His Disciples and for two and a half centuries after there was no bible, no AKJV, no English language,
no canon, no nothing
Not true at all. Jesus gave His Revelation to the apostle John within 63 years of the very 1st century. Jesus' brother, James, became the Nazarene
Nasi within days of Jesus' death and the Nazarene's flourished till the church became rooted. This period of the synagogue of James was the precursor
of the Christ Jesus' church. There has actually been no empty space from the death of Jesus to now.
It would do you well to read and become enlightened as to the church of the Christ Jesus and understand that you seem to have a very narrow
understanding that the first church of Christianity was not in Rome but was in Glastenbury of Britain. Most all of what I read on ATS does not realize
that Rome was not the first Christians nor even regarded as being Christianity but was of the Roman organized center of paganism of which one of their
many concepts was that of which they took from the Jews by force in 135 CE.
It was in the year of 37/63 CE that Christianity was founded in Glastonbury Britain through the account of Gildas the Wise who was the earliest
Christian historian (425-512 CE). Through Joseph of Arimathea and some of those such as Lazareth and sister Martha, Mary Magdalene, Nicodemus, Mary
mother of Jesus, Rufus, and many more followers of Jesus were the first Christian congregation and missionaries of the first church of Britain.
As James attended the Hebrew Nazarene's in his synagogue immediately after the death of Jesus, it was His uncle Joseph of Arimathea and his band of
missionaries who were exiled to Britain in this very time frame. Before the 2nd century, Christianity had been rooted in France and from there it was
afire throughout the world.
Meanwhile the Revelation of Jesus to John tells us from the very onset --
(1) The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants
things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and
signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
(2) Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
(3) Blessed is he that readeth
, and they that hear
the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the
time is at hand.
If you recognize Revelation as being such as it claims, then you can now understand two very important things to realize. If you deny Revelation then
you are not a servant of Jesus. Also that Jesus suggests that you read or listen to His Revelation. There is nothing said by Jesus that you should
worship His Revelation that He gave to His people nbut he taught the following --------------------
(15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
(16) But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
Chester John is a servant of the Christ Jesus in my opinion and a great warrior of The Most High El.-----------------
