Pamphlet 1576 2 John kc1-2
Christians do not know the Parable of the Fig Tree,
which Christ specifically told them to learn in Mark 13 and Mat. 24,
they do not know who is of Judah and who isn't!
said Learn it! Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable
of the fig tree;...

2 John 1:3
Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
Did you know that John emphasizes "truth" more than any other apostle.
In fact he refers to "truth" 10 times in his first epistle, 5 times in this second epistle and 6 times in his third epistle, which is more than it is referred to in all of Matthew, Mark, and Luke combined.
John, the disciple whom Jesus loved, knows that without truth you cannot fully know the true love of God.
 I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
Of course you have to know it first, right?
And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
Whenever God's elect hear the phrase "from the beginning" their ears perk up, for it has special meaning and significance to them because they know the Word of truth.
They know of their calling from the beginning, even from before the foundation of the world as Paul wrote in Ephes. 1:4 "According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:"
2 John 1:6
And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
Here it is: (the subject from vs. 7 is the church of Philadelphia)
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
You see, to know the truth, to know God's Word, is to have the "seal of God" in your forehead, i.e. in your mind.
Those who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads will be deceived and seduced by Satan, the false messiah, and his locust army, those angels who are cast out with him in Rev. 12:7-9.
In Rev. 9:4 we read concerning that seal: "And it was commanded them [Satan's army] that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
One of the important truths that distinguish God's elect and the children of the church of Philadelphia along with her sister church, Smyrna, is that they know and they teach who the kenites are.
The word "kenite" means "son of Cain", who was the offspring of Satan as a result of the seduction of mother Eve in the fig grove.
(Note: If you are not familiar with what happened in the beginning, in the garden of Eden, log unto "Genesis). You'll be glad you did.)
Adam and Eve now needed a covering, because of sin.
#6227 Cain and Abel were both Eve's sons, but they both were not Adam's, only Abel was.
#6228Plain and simply, like it or not, believe it or not, Cain was Satan's son, not Adam's.
#6229Cain's wife was from the sixth day creation (refer to previous lessons).
#6230 The sons of Cain made it through the flood!
#6231Cain was spared because he will be used to fulfill the "negative part" of God's plan.
#6232 Remember, since Cain was not Adam's son, he is not listed in Adam's genealogy in chapter five.
#6249 Sons of Cain (Kenites) alive and well after Noah's flood.
John warns us of those kenites, the antichrists, in this second epistle:
2 John 1:7
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
Worse yet, they have those of the true house of Israel believing they are gentiles. (Note: If you do not know where the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel dwell today, go to Pamphlet #1064 or Pamphlet #1020 under Table of Contents "Wisdom" on the this American Wisdom Series site.
Let's check out what the church of brotherly love and truth knows regarding these deceivers who deny Jesus is the Messiah:
These Christians know the true lineage of David and also those who claim to be of his son Judah, but are not.Rev. 3:7
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
Again, God's elect, His children, keep His commandments, His Word, and they are never afraid to speak the truth.Rev. 3:8
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
They haven't "a clue" much less "the key" of David!
The sad part is, because they abide not it the truth, neither do they know the false messiah from the True Messiah.
They will be tempted and deceived by the tempter.
So be careful and stay in His Word and believe Him!
Believe what is written and documented in the Word of God.
If you listen to what men teach you without trying the spirits as John instructed us in his first epistle, you will be deceived and led astray, guaranteed!
John tells us to hang on and hang in there:
2 John 1:8
Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
This is the same instruction given to those of the church of Philadelphia.
Do you see the parallels?
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
Philip. 2:12 says "...work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." No preacher or minister is going to answer for you when you stand before Christ, and you WILL stand before Him.
You see, eternal life is not a "right" and it is not an "entitlement program".
Do not think that our Father is going to buy that liberal garbage spewed forth by so many in this final generation that it is somebody else's fault.
You have access to the Word of God.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
