Preparing yourself for the study of God’s Word

Before we begin, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is— you have trusted in Him for eternal life), it is important to prepare yourself to take-in God’s Word or participating in a Communion Service, so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge your sins privately directly to God the Father. This will assure that you are in fellowship with God the Father and the Holy Spirit’s convicting ministry, also called the convincing ministry will then be able to teach you as the Holy Spirit is the real teacher and the pastor’s message is the vehicle the Holy Spirit uses to convince you what you are learning is true or not.

1 John 1:9 says—“If we confess [simply name, cite or acknowledge to God the Father] our sins [known sins], He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins [known sins] and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [all unknown and forgotten sins];” NKJV (New King James Version); we call this REBOUND, read the full doctrine as to “why” we need to use 1 John 1:9 to grow spiritually. REBOUND

If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins to God; the issue for you is to believe by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life and you will be saved the very second you believe in Him:

John 6:47 says: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” NKJV

Notice again what John 6:47 says, “he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” It doesn’t say, “will have”; it says, “has.” Therefore, the very moment you believe Jesus Christ’s promise of everlasting life, you have it (it’s really just that simple), and it can never be lost or taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.

John 3:14-18 says: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” NKJV

Let us now bow our hearts and take a moment to prepare for learning God’s Word, if there is any known sin in your life, this is the time to just cite it privately to God the Father with your thoughts directed towards Him. With your head bowed and your eyes closed, you have total privacy in your mind and soul:


Our Pastor-Teacher is:

This ministry is non-denominational and is dedicated to
teaching the Word of God from the original languages and
making it available at no charge throughout the world.


Unlike the bible study, these notes are not just for reading without watching the video. These notes are more designed to follow along during the sermon and to bring up the “hover pop-up scripture references” (some websites may require to left click the link, if that doesn’t work then look them up in your Bible) when the Pastor asks everyone to turn to that passage in their bibles.

Sermon: The Sixth Commandment: Thou Shall not Murder.

Mosaic Law – provide a stabilized population of young men who are willing to defend not only their right woman, but every right woman for every right man in the nation as well as their families.

The Ten Commandments provide a phenomenal basis for establishing a stabilized military organization made up of men and women who have an understanding of the basic concepts of authority.

Individuals who have the moral courage to go out and vigorously defeat and neutralize the enemy to the point of unconditional surrender, annihilation, or both.

“What about Thou shalt not kill?”

As we shall see in our exegetical study of the sixth commandment, the word for “kill” should be translated “murder”; therefore, it has nothing to do with military life.

The word kill in this passage is ratsach which refers to murder whereas the Hebrew word harag means to kill legitimately.

The Hebrew verb for kill is harag not ratsach which means to kill the enemy in battle or to execute the criminal.

Violence and war can be right timing, or it can be wrong timing.

If you are in the military or law enforcement, there are times when you must practice violence.

In the laws of divine establishment, capital punishment is the way that crime is controlled.

So, a “time to kill” refers not only to capital punishment for criminals, but also to the fact that when you serve your country in the military, you should kill the enemy.

Exo 20:13, the Bible does NOT say “You shall not kill”, it says “You shall not murder.”

If you kill when it’s time to heal then you’re a murderer.

To kill the enemy as a military representative of your country is not only compatible with the plan of God, but is commanded and should be done “as unto the Lord.”

There is no Biblical support for the position of a “conscientious objector” which refers to individuals who are not willing to fight for their country because it’s against their beliefs.

This situation could be drastically changed if the military were made up of a mature believers with Bible doctrine or even unbelievers with the principles of the divine institutions in their right lobes.

The principles contained in the Decalogue (10 commandments) are for both the believer and the unbeliever.

The Biblical principle in fighting a war calls for the defeat of the enemy, and that entails killing and neutralizing the enemy.

You do not stop wars by playing games with the enemy; you stop wars by KILLING THE ENEMY!

In spite of man’s efforts for peace, there will be warfare until the Second Advent of Jesus Christ (Mat 24:6; Mar 13:7; Luk 21:9).

MAR 13:7 “And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened; those things must take place; but that is not yet the end.

MAR 13:8 “For nation will arise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

You cannot stop wars by being a peacenik; you cannot stop wars by disarmament. The only way to stop war is to be ready for war; and adequate preparation demands a strong military.

The Jews in the Old Testament had the greatest military record of any national entity in the ancient world, with the possible exception of the Assyrians.

It was the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of Hosts, the Commander of the Armies, who gave the orders for the Jewish Army to fight and defeat, and in some instances, to annihilate the enemy.

A man must have a lot of character to fight and die for his country and to do it right

The sixth commandment: Exo 20:13 is the Prohibition of Murder. In the English this commandment reads: THOU SHALT NOT KILL.

The Hebrew word in this verse is “ratsach,” which does not mean “to kill,” but “to murder,” and there is a vast difference between killing and murder. – The Bible = Thou shalt not murder. (Mat 19:18).

This commandment deals with the crime of murder; it prohibits murder.

The Word of God calls for capital punishment for the violation of this commandment (Gen 9:6; Lev 24:17; Rom. 13:1-4).

The first time someone died was Abel, and in Gen 9:6, the Lord said “Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.”

Lev 24:17 ‘And if a man takes the life of any human being, he shall surely be put to death.”

The prohibition of murder is designed for the preservation of Divine Institution #1 — Volition.

In committing murder, you are depriving another of his life and freedom.

The operation of free will is the basic issue in the angelic conflict, and the Decalogue is designed to protect every free will during the course of the angelic conflict.

Salvation by faith in Christ requires non-meritorious exercise of free will, and free will is cut off abruptly by an act of murder.

Your position in Christ required an act of free will, as positive volition expressed itself through faith.

Observation of this prohibition is basic to human liberty and to the function of civilized society.

There would be a thousand people who no longer possessed freedom.

How can people live close together, get angry at each other and still survive? Because of the divine law, “Thou shalt not commit ‘homicide’ “ — that is how!

Murder is prohibited by God, whereas killing IN DEFENSE of one’s own person or nation is sanctioned by the Word of God and is absolutely necessary in many instances for the preservation of freedom.

TLJC says 5 times, to five different churches rebound, or metanoeo meaning to change your mind, name your sin and recover.

When you have no rebound, it means we keep on the low road and intensify misery and divine discipline.

Rebound, on the other hand, recovers us immediately from that and rebound however is not victory over sin, it’s just recovery from sin.

Anguish or sorrow, as God would have it, is given in order to encourage the believer to rebound.

Point 1. The Concept of Warfare as Taught in Scripture.

There will be no warfare in the Millennium (1,000 years) says Isa 2:4.
Isa 2:4 Nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they learn war.

Man has never accomplished and will not accomplish in the Church- age or Tribulation what only Jesus Christ can accomplish in the Millennium……which is perfect world peace.

Just as TLJC made perfect peace with God at His first advent, so He will provide the basis for no more war at his Second Advent or the Second coming.

War is used by God to kill off the leaches of society; in reality it is a cleansing agent.

Ecc 3:8 that “There is a time for war, and there is a time for peace.”

There is a book of wars that comes directly from the Lord
Num 21:14 Therefore it is said in the book of the wars of the Lord, what He did in the Red Sea, and in the brooks of Arnon.

The misnomer of war is the word “sword” in Matt 26:52, “For all who draw the sword shall perish by the sword.”

Peter thought that he had a “just cause” as a Christian so he advocated civil disobedience.

TLJC rebuked him and said that: “All those who draw the sword as a criminal in civil disobedience shall perish by the sword.”

The sword also refers to capital punishment in Rom 13:4.

Gen 9:6 “Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for in the image of God he made man.

There is a difference between the sword as a criminal and the honor of fighting for your country as a military soldier.

Make sure that you understand that the book of Numbers is the book of the war plans for Israel.

Point 2. A strong military prevents war and protects divine establishment. All freedom comes through military victory.

1. The spiritual factor of Bible doctrine in the soul, prayer, and the grace of God, Neh 4:8-9.

2. Military preparedness, Neh 4:8-9, 13 15.

3.The spiritually mature believer

Prin-Freedom, prosperity, and life are sacred under the laws of divine establishment and must be fought for in order to be protected.

Failure of society,
Lack of training,
No respect for authority,
Lack of courage,
No self-discipline.

Social degeneration is always characterized by disdain of the military and police.

God uses the military to demonstrate the degeneracy and decline of a nation.

One military leader said; “Victory depends on training, not numbers.”

In fact, true courage is intensified by thoroughness of training.

Freedom – perpetuated because the people became courageous in battle. Heb 11:34 They quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.

Notice the phrase “became mighty in war”

So, the principle – Under the laws of divine establishment, all national freedom and security comes through military victory.

My main point here is that killing is legitimate when we are at war, whereas murder is taking a life and violating another’s free will.

In fact, the book of Jeremiah teaches that Jewish military failure in 586 B.C. was attributed to the spiritual and moral decline of the people.
