The Gospel of Luke was written to convey the truth his friend was seeking concerning Christ. Theophilus wanted to know if HE indeed was the long-awaited Messiah or is there another reason?
We know that Luke was not a first-hand observer or one of the original 12 disciples we know from Paul that Luke was a physician Colossians 4:14 Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.
Being a Physician made him a keen observer and a person who paid attention to details. Because of Luke we also have the book of Acts also written to Theophilus whose name means friend of God (be)loved by God or loving God, according to the wiki.
In those days Luke was considered a highly educated man who probably could mend a broken bone, amputate a body part to spare a life or cure a headache, he would be regarded as an important person to know in his day.
There is little known about Theophilus to whom the words are written too, some say he may have been a Roman soldier of high rank, this I find not as likely as Romans were more Polytheist than Monotheist Luke 1:4 discusses that Theophilus was instructed in the faith and wanted to have a record. Colossians 4:14 reveals he may have been Theophilus’s Physician. While others claim Theophilus may have been Paul’s Lawyer in Rome and Luke was tasked because of his character and attention to detail that he was commissioned by Theophilus to get the details to build his case in defense of Paul.
I think everyone reads way to much into it, the scripture is not clear for instance my last name divinely given to me in adoption means beautiful place because of what Theophilus name reveals it may be your heavenly father seeking to be your friend and that the letter is written to you and us who believe. We are all Theophilus whom God wants to friend and become lovers of God. To do that one must have the answers to the questions we seek.
(1) Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,
(2) Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;
(3) It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,
(4) That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.
For those who have difficulty understanding the word thou it means “you” Theophilus may have been instructed in the Jewish faith and Luke is telling him about why Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah. Lukes letter follows a pattern.
There is always an introduction, a question, an answer often with a description or demonstration. Luke is questioning those who were there. Luke is a first-century news anchor giving us the best reporting ever God valued the work of Luke, and that is why we find him honored among the disciples and his place in history.
He closes out the letter before we get into the Acts of the Apostles with the Manifested Presence of God as Jesus appears to His Disciples after his crucifixion and death on the cross.
(36) And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
(37) But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
(No slaying here! Keep in mind the reason for the letter Luke 1:3-4.)
(38) And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
(39) Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
(40) And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
(41) And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
(42) And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
Why is this important for verse 41 to be noted? Could HE the resurrected Jesus not just create the meat right there in their presence to offer more proof HE is God? Maybe we expect too much and we offer so little?
(43) And he took it, and did eat before them.
Food will be served in heaven in hell there are many bakers but there is no food nothing to satisfy the longing of the soul.
(44) And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
(45) Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
It is only G-d who can open the understanding of the scriptures of those things hidden, I am not G-d but HE that is in me and us who are believers is greater than he that is in the world and I have the mind of Christ as revealed in 1 Corinthians 2:16.
I got saved because I read the word and seen the truth, not because I saw people fall over backward.
(46) And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
(47) And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
(48) And ye are witnesses of these things.
(49) And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
(50) And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
(51) And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
(52) And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
(53) And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
Never does Luke mention in his perfect understanding of all things in the Gospel or the Book of Acts of massive slayings, minor slayings or any slayings at all in the spirit. Something like that in his day would have been surely recorded he begins that he has a perfect understanding of all things, he never adds the slaying of the spirit to it or that at some services he almost poops his tunic.
My observations will be hated by most Christians who claim it is a work of G-d but I am going by the scriptures and so should you if you desire to be a true Skywalker.
Those who receive the mark of the beast in their hands or in their forehead will never enter into the kingdom of heaven. The devil has marked you one of his own, that taking the mark you denounce God there are souls in hell that cry out daily moment by moment for mercy and forgiveness but they waited until it was too late the blood can only be applied to sins before one dies. You must confess, you must believe and you must receive God’s forgiveness.
Adding to G-d’s word is a sin, false teachers will find their place in the lake of fire once this system is consumed by the coming supernova these spirits have no place to go. To get into heaven, one must receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior and not the counterfeited Jesus. Those saints left behind in the tribulation to be beheaded many of them will become angry at G-d they got left behind. Like the angels held in chains with no home at all they did not help the first bearer of light and allowed for greater rebellion.
The angels observe man they are learning from us what is good and evil. When Jesus transfigures on the mount of olives with Moses and Elijah in attendance, this is a picture of what the angels in chains could have done to help the light bearer when he was the covering of the most high instead they did nothing to curb the rebellion. This before man is created to replace the ones lost and made the light of the world all because the rebellious and faithless insisted on seeing the most high God.
Above image is linked to the Empires plans to control us which is not free will choice but forced inquisition tactics. They are not of my Church, and they have built their own gallows!
People will starve or find other ways to eat in the tribulation the beast that comes up out of the pit is what has been before, during the days of Noah there was cannibalism by the giants, and we see them rearing their ugly head in these days before the church is gone.
Santa Clarita Diet is a picture of things to come.
Need another witness? Listen to this testimony of a child who dies and goes to heaven and learns of it first hand. https://vimeo.com/222133437 out of the mouth of babes.
Demon’s love the taste of flesh and one of the reasons they put fat into our foods it is profit greed by the makers of the products the sale of fatty foods that we crave, but demons want fat too.
They are bold in these last days telling us their plans. G-d is sending warnings you would think that evil came for Jesus in the cloak of darkness those who seek others to be saved would come to me in the daylight I mean my peace plan is the best peace plan.
Hollywood, is the enemies seduction central and works through many of those who are not saved or filled with the Spirit of G-d many celebrities are headed for a place the Marvel people called beautiful in Antman and the Wasp, hell is not beautiful at all Jesus said there would be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
America was once many lights shining on the SON of G-d, but the evil empire sent in their manipulators and doctrines of demons into our Protestant Churches the number of ministers that stand behind the pulpit and defends them astounds me. You cannot win souls by agreeing with the lost or damned.
I can’t make this up, when I discovered the inverted Pyramid was G-d’s idea of a perfect society in 2009 is where the greatest in the kingdom is the servant of all and America turned the devil’s system upside down.
In 2013 the Movie with Tom Cruise came out “Oblivion” where the menace was an inverted Pyramid with a red eye destroying the people of the Earth let’s not forget his sidekick Bobblehead Bob!
I told you that hell was made for the devil and his fallen angels. That not rising your soul to the standard G-d set through Christ you would find yourself in a petri dish environment alone with the creatures known for death and decay. I did those on May 2017, and I repeated it on May 2018 on July 6th, 2018 Marvel comes out with the “Ant-man and the Wasp” where Michael Douglass shrinks himself to the smallest quantum level floating around with bacilli and other forms of bacteria and proclaims “This place is beautiful”. I promise you it is not beautiful at all, find the worst place on earth to live and its worst than that and its eternal no one will come to your rescue because you denied the SON of God HIS place in your life.
Produced by a company called Darkhorse Entertainment “The Umbrella Academy” an Umbrella is a covering that protects us from the elements, the hidden message Satan reveals in this little ditty cannot be overlooked this was one that caught my eye. The number Five character is a time traveler who is an old man in a child’s body. The number one character is called “Luther” half monkey half man and he is an Astronaut always looking down on earth. It is the devil who makes us believe in the evolution from monkey to man here we see NASA T minus and counting as one of his works. Number seven is a young woman who displays no power at all until it is awakened in her by an evil outsider, (this could be my 2 Corinthian 11:13-15 Pastor) she is the cause of the coming apocalypse that number five is trying to stop but cannot because it is imminent. As always this is not a young person TV series but is geared to them and picked up by Netflix.
G-d is not an angry little girl who’s only power is to destroy the world. I say this because we all know the significance of the number seven as G-d’s number. You have to keep in mind where this kind of stuff is coming from.
Is hell real? Absolutely, Christ and I are proof there are billions going there, and many came before us who are there. All because they cannot see the Love of G-d for them hanging on a cross. Because for many Christians falling backward is more important than lifting Jesus and opening the word to the lost.
Let’s have fun and win the world to Jesus in the process.
