Barnabas 5:1
For to this end the Lord endured to deliver His flesh unto
corruption, that by the remission of sins we might be cleansed, which
cleansing is through the blood of His sprinkling.

---This is explained in Hebrews 9:21.

Barnabas 5:2

---Here, he quotes Isaiah 53 as a prophecy of Christ coming to Israel. "He
was wounded for your transgressions, and He hath been bruised for
our sins; by His stripes we were healed. As a sheep He was led to
slaughter, as a lamb is dumb before his shearer."

Barnabas 5:3
We ought therefore to be very thankful unto the Lord, for that He
both revealed unto us the past, and made us wise in the present, and
as regards the future we are not without understanding.

---God draws the future into the past for us to see in the present.

Barnabas 5:4
Now the scripture saith; Not unjustly is the net spread for the
birds. He meaneth this that a man shall justly perish, who having
the knowledge of the way of righteousness forceth himself into the
way of darkness.

Barnabas 5:5
There is yet this also, my brethren; if the Lord endured to suffer
for our souls, though He was Lord of the whole world, unto whom God
said from the foundation of the world, Let us make man after our
image and likeness, how then did He endure to suffer at the hand
of men?

---Notice he asks how and not why.

Barnabas 5:6
Understand ye. The prophets, receiving grace from Him, prophesied
concerning Him. But He Himself endured that He might destroy death
and show forth the resurrection of the dead, for that He must needs
be manifested in the flesh;

Barnabas 5:7
that at the same time He might redeem the promise made to the
fathers, and by preparing the new people for Himself might show,
while He was on earth, that having brought about the resurrection He
will Himself exercise judgment.

---We will eventually see the fact that over seven billion souls have been resurrected today in a baptism of water. Water puts out fire. Judgement is fire.

Barnabas 5:8
Yea and further, He preached teaching Israel and performing so many
wonders and miracles, and He loved him exceedingly.

Barnabas 5:9
And when He chose His own apostles who were to proclaim His Gospel,
who that He might show that He came not to call the righteous but
sinners were sinners above every sin, then He manifested Himself
to be the Son of God.

---If you read Luke 3, you see that the Son of God created Adam, which is the same designation as the LORD of the Old Testament in Genesis 2. Christ did not come for the righteous. He came from those who will be lost in hell forever by transgressions. If you consult the book of Enoch, those who fell with the other Angels joined in a rebellion. Shortly after this, the flood occurred. Symbolism for the flood indicates beasts riding in the water. This is baptism.

Barnabas 5:10
For if He had not come in the flesh neither would men have looked
upon Him and been saved, forasmuch as when they look upon the sun
that shall cease to be, which is the work of His own hands, they
cannot face its rays.

Barnabas 5:11
Therefore the Son of God came in the flesh to this end, that He might
sum up the complete tale of their sins against those who persecuted
and slew His prophets.

---This is very telling. Who is the wrath of God poured out upon? Those who killed the prophets. They are with us today doing the same thing.

Barnabas 5:12
To this end therefore He endured. For God saith of the wounds of His
flesh that they came from them; When they shall smite their own
shepherd, then shall the sheep of the flock be lost.

Barnabas 5:13
But He Himself desired so to suffer; for it was necessary for Him to
suffer on a tree. For he that prophesied said concerning Him, Spare
My soul form the sword; and, Pierce My flesh with nails, for the
congregations of evil-doers have risen up against Me.

---If you read Revelation 1:7, it notes that the first century leaders that pierced Christ would be present to see Him return. How is this possible? Unknowingly, they are with us today in the flesh. They are the fallen ones revealed in the book of Enoch, cast into darkness until the time of the end. We are here as witnesses to their trial. The trial lasts for 6000 years, or 5125 years from the time of the watchers until today. This is the seventy generation judgment mentioned by Enoch. December 21st was the mark of the last 7 years.

Barnabas 5:14
And again He saith; Behold I have given My back to stripes, and My
cheeks to smitings, and My face did I set as a hard rock.

Barnabas 6:1
When then He gave the commandment, what saith He? Who is he that
disputeth with Me? Let him oppose Me. Or who is he that goeth to
law with Me? Let him draw nigh unto the servant of the Lord,

Barnabas 6:2
Woe unto you, for ye all shall wax old as a garment, and the moth
shall consume you. And again the prophet saith, seeing that as a
hard stone He was ordained for crushing; Behold I will put into the
fountains of Zion a stone very precious, elect, a chief
corner-stone, honorable.

---This is the very same cornerstone (Christ) that was rejected by the Builders (Masons of today).

Barnabas 6:3
Then again what saith He; And whosoever shall set his hope on Him,
shall live forever. Is our hope then set upon a stone? Far be it.
But it is because the Lord hath set His flesh in strength. For He
saith; And He set Me as a hard rock.

This gets back to the word Father in Hebrew being the Aleph (Strength) Bet (House). Christ is the Word, or what is written by the Alphabet. Son, in Hebrew, is Bet (House) Nun (Seed). The Strong stone is not the flesh and blood that is created by the Word, but the very Word itself.

Barnabas 6:4
And the prophet saith again; The stone which the builders rejected,
this became the head and the corner. And again He saith; This is
the great and wonderful day, which the Lord made.

---In many ways, Barnabas is the key to unlocking several doors in scripture. In our world, the Builders (Masons) have identified themselves as the ones mentioned in the verse above. Do all Masons reject Christ? No. Many, however, are the very leaders resurrected to judgment.

Barnabas 6:5
I write to you the more simply, that ye may understand, I who am the
offscouring of your love.

Barnabas 6:6
What then saith the prophet again? The assembly of evildoers
gathered around Me, they surrounded Me as bees surround a comb;
and; For My garment they cast a lot.

---Notice the connection of the ones who pierced Christ to the Masons (builders). Barnabas is again revealing a key to the coming wrath. Christ continues to be the one that is long-suffering with these individuals, even placing them in the waters of the flood with the doors of the ARK open.

Barnabas 6:7
Forasmuch then as He was about to be manifested in the flesh and to
suffer, His suffering was manifested beforehand. For the prophet
saith concerning Israel; Woe unto their soul, for they have
counseled evil counsel against themselves saying, Let us bind the
righteous one, for he is unprofitable for us.

---This gets back to the point of the first few chapters. Giving is better than taking for self. It is the point.

Barnabas 6:8
What sayeth the other prophet Moses unto them? Behold, these things
saith the Lord God; enter into the good land which the Lord swear
unto Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and inherit it, a land flowing with
milk and honey.

---Notice what Barnabas is doing. He is bringing out all the witnesses from the past to testify concerning Christ and the Builders who reject the Chief Cornerstone. There are two sides to this coin. First, the cornerstone is Christ. Second, the name of Christ represents why the cornerstone is solid. It is build on giving rather than taking. The builders have set their stone based on private associations designed to take from others. It is founded on the ideals of the thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy. Who funds both sides of war? The Builders (Masons). Daddy Warbucks is the war profiteer that creates war and misery for profit. He then takes advantage of the orphans that are created in the process.

Barnabas 6:9
But what saith knowledge? Understand ye. Set your hope on Him who
is about to be manifested to you in the flesh, even Jesus. For man
is earth suffering; for from the face of the earth came the creation
of Adam.

---Man is Earth facing. This is changed when Christ engages our hearts to righteousness. Like Lot and his wife, they were not to turn again to the city they were escaping from. Like the children of Moses in the wilderness, they were to exit Egypt. Christ is telling the Masons the same thing. Come out of paganism and face the truth.

Barnabas 6:10
What then saith He? Into the good land, a land flowing with milk
and honey. Blessed is our Lord, brethren, who established among us
wisdom and understanding of His secret things. For the prophet
speaketh a parable concerning the Lord. Who shall comprehend, save
he that is wise and prudent and that loveth his Lord?

---Truth cannot be denied. Instead, it denies ignorance. The only way to a land flowing with milk and honey is to flip objectivism back to Altruism. Giving creates surplus. Taking creates the same debt we suffer today. See this Thread on the Moneychangers and thier end of destruction.

Barnabas 6:11
Forasmuch then as He renewed us in the remission of sins, He made us
to be a new type, so that we should have the soul of children, as if
He were recreating us.

Barnabas 6:12
For the scripture saith concerning us, how He saith to the Son; Let
us make man after our image and after our likeness, and let them
rule over the beasts of the earth and the fowls of the heaven and
the fishes of the sea. And the Lord said when He saw the fair
creation of us men; Increase and multiply and fill the earth.
These words refer to the Son.

---If your cornerstone is set in place incorrectly, the entire building will crumble. Christ tears down the bricks and builds a new structure. He sets the cornerstone in place correctly, founded on giving rather than taking. Those who face the old building will crumble with it.

As I noted earlier, the LORD of the OT is the LORD of the New. They are one in the same, the very Son of God being raised in the wilderness. See this thread: Son of God for Dummies

Barnabas 6:13
Again I will shew thee how the Lord speaketh concerning us. He made
a second creation at the last; and the Lord saith; Behold I make
the last things as the first. In reference to this then the
prophet preached; Enter into a land flowing with milk and honey,
and be lords over it.

---THIS IS A HUGE MYSTERY REVEALED! Note what he is saying here. There are TWO creations, just as Genesis 1 and 2 outline. Our point is to exit Egypt (refinery of Earth) so we can enter the promised land flowing with milk and honey. Earth II will be this land for us. First, we must exit Egypt and enter the ARK. We are beasts riding the waters of baptism until we arrive home.

Barnabas 6:14
Behold then we have been created anew, as He saith again in another
prophet; Behold, saith the Lord, I will take out from these, that
is to say, from those whom the Spirit of the Lord foresaw, their
stony hearts, and will put into them hearts of flesh; for He
Himself was to be manifested in the flesh and to dwell in us.

---We were made into beings of flesh so that we could then be made anew into beings of Spirit. First, we are children of God being raised in the wilderness of trials and tribulations. Consider these words from EA Poe.

"All things are either good or bad by comparison. A sufficient analysis will show that pleasure in all cases, is but the contrast of pain. Positive pleasure is a mere idea. To be happy at any one point we must have suffered at the same. Never to suffer would have been never to have been blessed. But it has been shown that, in the inorganic life, pain cannot be; thus the necessity for the organic. The pain of the primitive life of Earth, is the sole basis of the bliss of the ultimate life in Heaven."

Barnabas 6:15
For a holy temple unto the Lord, my brethren, is the abode of our

---Here, he is again revealing a mystery. The human heart is the temple where the sacrifice takes place. The beast is being burned on the Altar. It is then the sacrifice of our time spent here on Earth. We are baptized to repent. The question is, which way do you face?

Barnabas 6:16
For the Lord saith again; For wherein shall I appear unto the Lord
my God and be glorified? I will make confession unto Thee in the
assembly of my brethren, and I will sing unto Thee in the midst of
the assembly of the saints. We therefore are they whom He brought
into the good land.

---When you place yourself in Christ, your Angel above faces the Father in Heaven.

Matthew 18:10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven."

You are entangled, just like the matrix of the mind.

Barnabas 6:17
What then is the milk and the honey Because the child is first kept
alive by honey, and then by milk. So in like manner we also, being
kept alive by our faith in the promise and by the word, shall live
and be lords of the earth.

---The promise is this: for a time, wickedness rules and wicked men rule. When the Day of the Lord comes (Very shortly), the Saints will rule for 1000 years. The wicked will not ruse again until this 1000 years is complete (Revelation 20).

Barnabas 6:18
Now we have already said above; And let them increase and multiply
and rule over the fishes. But who is he that is able [now] to rule
over beasts and fishes and fowls of the heaven; for we ought to
perceive that to rule implieth power, so that one should give orders
and have dominion.

---Again, who is on the Earth today, being ruled by the one given dominion? Not just the fishes, but all the beasts are here (Acts 24).

Acts 24:15 and I have the same hope in God as these men themselves have, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked. 16 So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man.

Enoch says the same thing here:

1 I The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect and righteous, who will be 2
living in the day of tribulation, when all the wicked and godless are to be removed.

BOTH the righteous and wicked must be together. This is what Barnabas implies here.

The last verse:

Barnabas 6:19
If then this cometh not to pass now, assuredly He spake to us for the
hereafter, when we ourselves shall be made perfect so that we may
become heirs of the covenant of the Lord.

---Barnabas knew when this would happen. I will give you a glimpse into this by showing you a verse from chapter 15:

Barnabas 15:3
Of the Sabbath He speaketh in the beginning of the creation; And
God made the works of His hands in six days, and He ended on the
seventh day, and rested on it, and He hallowed it.

Barnabas 15:4
Give heed, children, what this meaneth; He ended in six days. He
meaneth this, that in six thousand years the Lord shall bring all
things to an end; for the day with Him signifyeth a thousand years;
and this He himself beareth me witness, saying; Behold, the day of
the Lord shall be as a thousand years. Therefore, children, in six
days, that is in six thousand years, everything shall come to an end.

---This timing is of our day and age. See this thread:

How many Biblical Witnesses to our Day and Age?

I can only show you. It is up to you to face a new direction by repenting of the old nature and clothing yourself with the new. Remember, Christ came to convict the unrighteous. He came for the sick and dying, not the well.

who is this Barnabas? the name seems to ring a bell, but i don't think i ever heard of him

i specially like

Barnabas 5:5 There is yet this also, my brethren; if the Lord endured to suffer for our souls, though He was Lord of the whole world, unto whom God said from the foundation of the world, Let us make man after our image and likeness, how then did He endure to suffer at the hand of men?

---Notice he asks how and not why.

but then again, i had no time yet to read all your posts.

to always apply the question 'how' or 'how comes that....' is giving me a much better understanding and knowledge than the question 'why'

i like this Barnabas

who ever he is, where ever he came from, i do like your interpretation of him.

Read Acts 1 before you begin to tread through the entire Epistle with commentary. I will finish this by tomorrow. There are 21 chapters and I will assume each chapter likely represents a letter of the Hebrew Alphabet. He stops short of the TAV if this is the case, which is the pictograph in Hebrew of two crossed sticks. He leaves the end for the Redeemer to finish. It seems likely since he ends the way he does.

As I stated in the head, Barnabas was a humble man. The lots cast in Acts 1 kept him from taking the place of Judas. I see this as the event that galvanized his humility and allowed him to see and hear. Paul and Barnabas were good friends, but had a falling out over a few contentions. Nothing that changes the message.
