Exploring the Messianic Secret in Mark's Gospel
By John Michael Perry / Sheed & Ward

John Michael Perry argues that Mark attempted to show that God had a secret Messianic purpose for Jesus that was contrary to what Jews expected. Perry further argues that Mark used biblical texts in his history to show that God's purpose was revealed to Jesus at his baptism and that Jesus knew he was secretly destined for rejection. However, Perry thinks that there is good evidence to support the idea that Jesus did not learn that he was the secret Messiah until after the resurrection. Still, Perry argues that there is much in Mark's theology that has value today, despite the difference between Mark version of history and the actual history. John Michael Perry is a professor of Religious Studies at Stritch College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Someone asked:   Will Yahshua the Anointed judge all personally?: Matthew 19:27-29

The Disciples will judge Israel and disciples (the elect) will judge all, including such as the Queen of Sheba, who is one of the elect.  Yahshua the Anointed is enthroned as the highest potentate of the Judgment just as the District Attorney on Law and Order has many subordinates (or “Assistant DAs”).

Someone asked:   Will their worm will never die?.  Isaiah 66:15, 16, 23, 24.

This refers to the trash heap around Jerusalem after the final battle for the city.  Although the NEW CITY will be a beautiful place, the decaying remains of the enemy will serve as a reminder of their disobedience and rebellion.  Even when the worms have consumed all and the fires are burned out. The memory of the whole terrible thing remains forever.

Someone asked:   Second Chance in the Millennium?

The Resurrection and Millennium do not constitute a second chance.  This will be the First Chance for most people to know Yahshua the Anointed.  Those who knew Yahshua the Anointed before but did not love him enough to keep his commandments and those who deliberately rejected Yahshua the Anointed will end up on the trash heap (Gehenna).

Matthew 10:28: 

Young’s Literal Bible 'And be not afraid of those killing the body, and are not able to kill the soul, but fear rather Him who is able both soul and body to destroy in Gehenna.’

Weymouth's New Testament ‘And do not fear those who kill the body, but cannot kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.’

Those who take part in a rebellion against Jerusalem or are part of the beast system when Yahshua the Anointed returns will be killed in battle or annihilated in Fire Lake. Rev 19:20-21.  Both soul and body are to be destroyed. 

Those who never had the opportunity to know him will,  for, in that day, 10.  “they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.” Heb 8:10,11.

Those who are born of spirit will live on in the mystical Body of Messiah until the resurrection then become kings, priests and judges in the administration of Yahshua the King.

Did the thief on the cross go to Heaven that day? 
Luke 23:43 – lit. “I tell you this day, you will be with me in the paradise.”

Day - shmeron” – “This day” – far more than a literal 24-hour period.  And he is speaking not only to a thief on a cross but to disciples like us.  “Day” a prophetic period – he has explained this earlier – a thousand years.

Paradise tw paradeisw” – the paradise or “the enclosed garden” Referring to the “new earth and sky” of Rev 21-23.  This is the resurrection kingdom located on the earth.

Where did Yahshua the Anointed go from the cross that day?  1 Peter 3:18-20 to the spirits in prison – the fallen angels – to proclaim his victory over death. 

The thief did not go to prison with Yahshua the Anointed.  He died and his just-born spirit returned to Eloha (G-d) to await the resurrection of the dead whereas the other thief deliberately rejected Yahshua the Anointed.  This thief may expect stiff punishment in the Millennium or the trash heap.

What survives when we (the born again) die?  Matthew 22:31. 

But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by Elohim, saying, 32.  I am the Elohim (G-d) of Abraham, and the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob? Elohim is not the Eloha of the dead, but of the living.

John 3:6-7  The human spirit is born through a miracle of restoration.  The human spirit is created by Yahweh and is good.  We who were once spiritually dead become spiritually alive – babes in the spirit. 

It is our spirit that survives physical death.

Eccl 12:7  The spirit returns to Eloha (G-d) before our bodies return to dust.

John 14:2  In Father’s house are many rooms – we can only understand this destination allegorically or symbolically – it’s beyond our comprehension and experience as to life outside of the body.

Rev 6:9-11 – Another symbolic representation of those spiritually alive but physically dead as “souls under the altar,” souls simply meaning living beings – referring to those that were “saved” out of the tribulation

1 Cor 15:16-22 – Those fallen asleep in Christ; 22-24 – the order of resurrection; 51-58 – Changed!

What Happens Then?

Luke 20:35-38: In the resurrection, those born of spirit will be as angels, or as the resurrected Yahshua the Anointed.

John 11:20-27 Our bodies will be resurrected and glorified and our spirit reunited with them.

2 Tim 2:7-15  We will rule and reign (and judge) with him over the renewed earth.

The Nazarene Acts
of the Apostles

Also known as
The Recognitions of Clement

Ever wonder why PAUL and not PETER received the mission to the lost tribes?  Wasn't Peter the stone upon which the "church" was to be built?  In this new translation of the Nazarene Acts, we follow Kefa (Peter) as he itinerates from Jerusalem and up the Mediterranean coast up to Tripoli, as recorded in the journals of his successor, Clement of Rome (Phi 4:3).  Every message Kefa preached, the company he kept, and the great works of faith the the Almighty accomplished through him are herein recorded.  This 300 page volume has been 'hidden' in the back of an obscure volume of the "Church Fathers" all this time.  Could it be that, in establishing the Gentile 'church' by pushing away from Judaism, this history was purposely hidden?
