About this title
This book is like a companion to the New Testament; it can be called the New Testament companion.
This book seeks to answer the most asked questions about God and his word. It tells of the things that we accept as truth without investigating their validity or their originality and of what existed to cause us to go astray. We take a born-come-see attitude, so we do not question it to see where it came from and what was said at the beginning. We receive the Gospel like the days of Noah. It is like a telephone game where you call somebody and tell them something. They call someone else and repeat what you said. By the time it reaches the fifth person, it is a completely different statement. That is how we teach a false Gospel. The wrong understanding is spoken so many times that we believe it to be true. We accept too many things without investigating where they began. We need to learn from Dr. Luke.
Most honorable Theophilus: Many people have written accounts about the events that took place among us. They used as their source material the reports circulating among us from the early disciples and other eyewitnesses of what God has done in fulfillment of his promises. Having carefully investigated all of these accounts from the beginning, I have decided to write a careful summary for you, to reassure you of the truth of all you were taught. (Luke 1:1–4 NLT)
Give us this day our daily bread. (Matt. 6:11)
We are told to say this prayer, but we never questioned about it. Most of us assume. Many times a day, we feed our bodies through our mouths, and it goes down to our stomach; we need to be aware of feeding our souls.
Man doth not live by bread only. (Deut. 8:3 KJV)
We need to feed our souls from our eyes and ears to our brain. Yeshua says,
Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entered in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? (Matt. 15:16–17 KJV)
The bread mentioned in Matthew 6:11 is to feed the brain from our eyes and ears to our brains. Christ wants us to ask our Father for more of him that we can be more like him. Deuteronomy 8:3, the second statement, is saying to the Israelis that real life comes by obeying every command of God.
That is where Yeshua’s commandment comes in. Yeshua says, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15 KJV). You cannot keep commandments if you do not know them. The only commands spoken of are 613 commands in the mitzvah. Those mentioned in Exodus 20:3–17 are for everyone. I did my best trying to find the commands of Christ and list them book by book; you should read them from your Bible, which will help you to be familiar with the word of God. In Bible class, it would be good to study them in order to get acquainted with them. In Christianity, pastors say you should read your Bible to become like Jesus. If you do not have a guide,
And he said how can I, except some man should guide me? (Acts 8:31 KJV)
You could read through the Bible one hundred times and still couldn’t act like Christ. Christ told us what to look for; if we find them and keep them, we will be like him. Christ says, “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love” (John 15:10 KJV). There are three sets of commands. One, a set of ten, was given by the Father and written by his own fingers; the other 603 were given to Moses to write and be given to Israel. These were nailed to the cross when Christ died. And the other set was given by Christ through the Holy Ghost, which included a repeat of some of what was given to Israel.
Christ wants to see himself in us. Before the thermometer existed, when a goldsmith wanted to know if the metal was hot, he would look to see if he could see himself in the melted metal. If he couldn’t see him in the metal, the metal was not hot enough.
I was born in Jamaica, West Indies, in 1941. When I was eighteen years old, the Lord reveal himself to me, and I accepted a new life. I got baptized, and God filled me with his Spirit, and I started to live a new life. I got married to Lucy Dennis. We raised seven children-three boys and four girls. The children's names are Mark, Daniel, Paul, Reba, Lydia, Tracy, and Wendy. I then migrated to the United States. I came to the United States in August 1975. I was self-sponsored. I was a business executive. But I was not doing fine. When the factory was in Jamaica, the product was Jamaican. Now it was manufactured here in the United States, and nobody wanted to buy from me. My business went broke, and my mother died. She died of natural causes. I had to see what was best my mother's funeral or the needs of my children. I was a carpenter, and I took odd jobs and did them. I could get good contracts, but I did not have a license. I was also finding it hard to find a church to attend. The blacks had the message but not sophistication. The whites had both but did not want any blacks. I decided to home church. During this time, I took courses in construction at Miami Dade Community College and went for my license. One night, a heavenly visitor visit me in my sleep and told me to go and find what the first-century church taught and write it in a book for all to see. The church was going on fine. I found that what was being taught was not in line with the Bible although it sounded right. I wrote all of what I found.
