26 Justification & Eternal Damnation

 

JUSTIFICATION & DAMNATION.

By Kenneth Allan Clark.
            

 

Vision is twofold. 20/7/15

 

 

Probverbs 29:17 Correct your son, and he shall give you rest; yes, he shall give delight unto thy soul. 18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he. 19 A bondservant will not be corrected by words: for though he understands he will not answer.

 

 

How does God correct his sons? By his written word the Bible. And when we listen to and obey the word of God, God our Father delights in us. But a bondservant, even those who understand will not obey the word of God and needs to be corrected by the rod of correction. Those bondservants who harden their hearts to the word of God, will eventually lose their vision and will not be able to understand or perceive the mysteries of the kingdom.

 

 

Vision is twofold: Type 1

 

 

Vision type 1; is our ability to see and hear with our spiritual eyes and ears. Without this ability we cannot understand the mysteries of the kingdom above. Lack of obedience to the word of God leads to lack of understanding and deception, but should we repent and turn back to God, he will restore our spiritual vision and understanding.

 

When our leaders, whether they be fathers, elders, teachers, church, city or national leaders, when they lack vision they can lead whole families and whole nations into lack of spiritual vision and understanding. This happened to the Jewish nation 2,000 years ago, and it is happening to the Christian Church worldwide today; especially in the Western World.

 

 

Matthew 13:9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear. 10 Then the disciples came, and said unto him, why do you speak unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom above, but unto them it is not given. 12 For whoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that he has. 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables: because they seeing they see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

 

 

What is Satan’s main weapon? Lies and deception. What is our main defence against lies and deception? Knowing, understanding and by faith believing in the Written Word of God.

 

 

Vision is twofold: Type 2

 

 

The vision of the watchman. One who stands upon the city watch tower, watching out for all possible spiritual attacks by our enemy Satan and his demons.

 


Habakkuk 1:1 The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see. 2 O LORD, how long shall I cry, and you will not hear! I cry out unto you of violence, and you will not deliver!

 

 

Habakkuk’s heart is burdened by the destruction of the nation of Judah at the hands of the Babylonians. He cries out to God, but it seems no matter how much he cries out, God will not listen, nor will he deliver them from the violence of the Babylonians. This is burden of Habakkuk (throughout chapter 1); he sees the violence against Judah and he cries out to God. Then Habakkuk complains to God, accusing him of not listening nor delivering them.

 

 

Habakkuk 2:1 I will stand upon my watch, and set myself upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am corrected. 2 And the LORD answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tablets, that he who reads it may run with it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not delay.

 

 

 

Habakkuk is not just a seer and an intercessor in the natural, he is also a seer and an intercessor in the spiritual. For just as God’s judgment against Babylon will come at the appointed time and will not delay, so to at the appointed time God’s judgment will come upon the wicked.

 

 

 

Probverbs 29:17 Correct your son, and he shall give you rest; yes, he shall give delight unto thy soul. 18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he. 19 A bondservant will not be corrected by words: for though he understands he will not answer.

 

 

 

Why are people perishing? Because they have hardened their hearts against the truth, closed their eyes and ears; therefore they have poor spiritual vision and no longer know, understand or believe by faith in the Written Word of God.

 

 

 

Matthew 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah which says, By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people's heart is hardened, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should and turn back to me, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.  17 For surely I say unto you, that many prophets and just men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear, and have not heard them.

 

 

Every restoration and every revival of the Church, has started with the restoration of the written word of God. With the restoration of the written word of God, comes the restoration of vision;

 


With the ability to spiritually hear, see and understand the mysteries of the kingdom above.

 

Before the restoration started, the printing press was invented, and the Apostles and Prophets rewrote the Scriptures in the languages of the common people. Then, in the 16th Century, they began to restore and teach the first two foundational teachings of Christ (Hebrews 6:1-3).

 

 

1: The teaching of “repentance from dead works.”

 

2: The teaching of “faith towards God.”

 

Followed in the 20th Century by the restoration of the next two foundational teachings of Christ.

 

3: The teaching of baptisms.

 

4: The teaching of the laying on of hands.

 

That still leaves two more foundational teachings to be restored to the Church.

 

5: The teaching of the resurrection from the dead.

 

6: The teaching of eternal damnation.

 

However, like the restorers of the 16th Century we need to rewrite the Scriptures in the languages of the common people.  Although the King James Version is still the best English translation available, the meaning of words have changed over time. Also the spiritual vision and understanding of translators in the late 16th early 17th Centuries, was still heavily influenced by wrong teachings from the dark ages, and this influence has been carried through and expanded on, in our more modern English translations. This is why God has me (along with other things) working on “The Clarks English Translation.” Hopefully I will soon be able to publish “The Good News according to John, and according to Matthew, along with Paul’s letters to the “Romans” and the “Ephesians.”

 

While I have been working on this translation work, along with writing commentaries on John, Romans and Ephesians, my own spiritual vision and understanding has been improving. The more I see, learn and understand the mysteries of the kingdom above; the more I teach and share with the saints; the more I see, learn and understand.

Hebrews 5:11 Jesus Christ of whom we have many things to say, that are difficult to explain, since you are dull of hearing. 12  For when for the time you should be teachers, you have need that one teach you again what are the first principles of the words of God; and have become as a babe who has need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that uses milk is ignorant in the word of justification: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, to those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

 

 

Do you understand the doctrine of justification through the blood of Jesus Christ? If you do not understand and believe by faith in the doctrine of justification through the blood of Jesus Christ, then at best you are a spiritual babe in Christ, and you lack the spiritual vision to see and understand the foundational teaching of Christ.

 

 

John 3:14 As Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, even so the Son of man must be lifted up:  15 That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be delivered from sin. 18 He that believes in him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 

 

The snake being lifted up, is a type picture of the judgment of all Israel’s sin.

 

Even so the Son of man was lifted up and judged for all the sin of the world. He that believes in him is not condemned: but he that believes not, is condemned already. If one is condemned already, then he has been judged already. Likewise, if one has been justified already, he has also been judged already.

 

 

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be delivered from wrath through him.

 

 

John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all judgement unto me. 33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.

 

 

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is better for you that I go away. For if I do not go away, the Intercessor will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will convict the world of sin, and of justification, and of damnation. 9 Of sin, because they believe not in me. 10 Of justification, because I go to my Father, and you see me no more. 11 Of damnation, because the prince of this world is damned.

 

 

When was the world judged for sin? The world was judged for sin, once and for all eternity upon the cross of Calvary, and on the cross through his blood Jesus Christ justified all men for all time.

Hebrews 5:11 Jesus Christ of whom we have many things to say, that are difficult to explain, since you are dull of hearing. 12  For when for the time you should be teachers, you have need that one teach you again what are the first principles of the words of God; and have become as a babe who has need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that uses milk is ignorant in the word of justification: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, to those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

 

 

If we remain ignorant of the word of justification, we remain as a babe spiritually, and are unable to eat the meat of foundational teachings of Christ. And what is the 6th and final foundational teaching of Christ? The doctrine of the eternal damnation, the judgement of the sin of the world upon the cross of Calvary.

 

 

Hebrews 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, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of the laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal damnation. 3 And this will we do, if God permit.

 

 

The reformation / the restoration of the Church began with the rewriting of the Scriptures in the languages of the common people. If the restoration of the Church is to continue, the Scriptures need to be restored and rewritten in the languages of the common people. For example to word justification which (apart from the book of Romans) has been largely removed and replaced with the word righteousness. The word justification needs to be restored to the word of God. How can the common man understand the doctrine of justification, if the word justified is all but removed from the Scriptures. And without an understanding of this doctrine, the Church is spiritually dull of hearing, and are as spiritual babes (Hebrews 5:11 – 14).   



Justification or Righteousness?

 

             By Kenneth Allan Clark  Copyright © 7 / 8 / 15

 

Looking at Righteousness, Just, Justice, Justified and Justification.

 

I have been looking up the original Hebrew and Greek words and their translation into our English Bibles. The contexts of their usage, both verse usage and passage usage. Then I ask the question, considering the overall Bible, what word best fits true foundations of the doctrines Christ.

 

Young’s numbers used.

 

H6662 (just) translated into English; 37 times as Just and 168 as Righteous.
 
Although Just is only used 37 times against the 168 times Righteousness is used, this enough times for us to ask two questions. 1: Which word is more correct? 2: Would either of the two words fit within the overall contexts of all the verses and true Bible doctrines? Taking all these things into consideration, I would have to conclude the word Just is a better and more correct translation than Righteousness.

 

By using the same rules of context with all the Hebrew and Greek words translated into English as Righteous and Righteousness, or as Just, Justice and Justified, I would have to conclude that all such words would be better and more correctly translated as Just, Justice or Justified.

 

H6663 (to be just) translated into English; 22 times as Justify and 12 times as Righteous.
 
H6664 (just) translated into English; 9 times as Just; 10 times as Justice and 96 times as Righteous.
 
H6666 (justice) translated into English; 12 times as Justice and 144 times Righteousness.
 
There are five Greek words the K.J.V. sometimes translated as either righteous or righteousness. All of which start with the Greek word dikaio, which means Justify.
 
G1342 (Just) translated into English; 33 times as Just and 46 times as Righteous.
 
G1343 (Justification) translated into English; 92 times as Righteousness.
 
G1344 (Justify) translated into English; 39 times as either Justify or Justified, and 1 time as righteous.

 

G1345 (Justify) translated into English; 2 times as Ordinances, 2 times as Judgment, 2 times as Justification and 3 times as righteousness.
 
G1346 (Justify) translated into English; 2 times as Justly, 2 times as Righteously and 1 time as Righteousness.

 


If we compare Righteousness with words like Justify, Justified and Justification, Righteousness has no guts nor depth of the foundational doctrines of Christ in it. But Justification cut right down to the depths of the foundational doctrines of Christ.
 
1: We all have sinned and the penalty of sin is death, but are freely justified by the blood of the Lamb of God.
 
2: God is both a just and merciful God.
 
Let us look at two verses from the view of a new immature Christian. To most such persons being righteous means being a perfect goody goody; and they struggle with the concept of clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ; while most readily grasp and understand the concept of justification.
 


2Pe 2:5 (K.J.V.) And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
 


Was Noah preaching deliverance by being a perfect goody goody? No! He was preaching justification through the blood of the Lamb. And in keeping with this message, as soon as he got off the ark he had a blood sacrifice.
 


Eph 6:14 (K.J.V.) Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

 

 
Is our armour dependant on us being clothed in breastplate righteousness, as a perfect goody goody?

Or is it dependant on us being clothed in the breastplate of justification by the blood of Jesus Christ.
 
Under the Old Covenant the High Priest was clothed in the breastplate of judgement (Exodus 28:15, 29 & 30). Under the New Covenant we are clothed in the breastplate of justification.
 
Having spent some time prayerfully studying this question, I believe I must conclude that justified and justification agree with the original Hebrew and Greek while to the average modern English man, righteousness doesn’t.
 
God bless you all,
Prophet Ken Clark.

 

 

HOW TO RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST
AS YOUR LORD AND DELIVERER.

 

Today you have heard the good news.  Now the choice is yours to make.  You can either choose to believe and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Deliverer, or you can choose to reject Jesus.  To accept Jesus, is to receive deliverance to your soul.  To reject Jesus, is damnation to your soul.

 

If your choice is yes, I believe and I want to repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus.  Then I invite you to find a Bible believing church that preaches the good news and baptizes those who believe and repent.  When you have found such a church, ask them to baptize you (Dunk you under the water) in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins and to ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit.

 

You will be saved and you will be filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

Attend a Christian church regularly, make friends with other Christians; they will help you in your Christian walk.  Share your love of Jesus, with your non-Christian friends and family.  Read God’s Word, the Bible daily and apply it to your life.  Pray, (talk with God your Father above, who loves you very much) every day.  He wants to talk with you and listen to you.  Do these things and you will grow strong in the Lord Jesus Christ.

May God bless you and keep you.


From your friend and brother in Christ,
Ken Clark.
