What is the Foundation of Jesus Christ?
A foundation is a natural or prepared ground or base on which some
structure rests. It is the beginnings or first principals of a system of
truth. A person who comes to the Lord Jesus Christ, and hears and does
what he says, builds a foundation on a rock. When trouble comes, that
person's life cannot be shaken. The person who lays his foundation on
the rock, must first dig deeply into the things of God which are
normally hidden and above man's scrutiny This study lays that solid
foundation of Jesus Christ in a Christian, using the six principles of
the doctrine of Christ as written in Hebrews 6:1-3 in the Word of God.
What is a sin?
Sin is the disobedience to the LORD GOD's Laws and is unrighteous,
unjust, immoral and wrong. The five types of sin, transgression,
unrighteousness, omission of known duty, faithlessness, and foolish
thinking constitute a sin against the LORD GOD. This chapter encourages
you to have faith that the LORD GOD has convicted you of your sins, and
dissuades you from looking for new sins, or focusing on the old ones.
You will learn to focus on what the LORD GOD is placing in your heart
concerning sin, and change what you can as fast as you can and have
confidence that those deeper sins that seem impossible to remove at this
point, will become easier to overcome as your walk with Jesus becomes
What are the sources of sin?
The sources of sin come from the works of Satan, mans corrupted heart,
lust, Adam's transgression, and the beginning of life. Sin comes to all
human beings as a result of the first sin of mankind through Adam. If it
would be possible for a newborn to never sin, that newborn would still
be a born into sin as a result of Adam's transgression. That is why it
is completely impossible for a person of this world to be sin free. A
person is born a sinner, and must die because he is a sinner. This
chapter identifies the different places that sin originates.
What are the consequences of sin?
If a person has the sins of the devil, he cannot love Jesus Christ,
understand His message or even hear His Word. A sinner is blinded and
the gospel is hidden from them. Sin make a person a slave, and condemned
to die. The LORD GOD punishes the sinner, and the natural affects of sin
cause moral depravity, perverse living, depression and distress.
This chapter reveals the results of living in the filthy condition of
What is the LORD GOD's Will on sin?
The LORD GOD wills men to be sanctified in His presence. To be
sanctified means to be both ceremonially and morally clean (clean both
inside and outside). A person that is sanctified is made righteous and
holy. This chapter reveals the development of the sacrifice of life for
the sanctification of a person as Willed by the LORD GOD, and traces the
establishment of sacrifice through Abel, Abraham, Passover, the
sacrifice of animal life, to the ultimate substitution of the sacrifice
of the life of His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, for the redemption
What is Christ's relationship to sin? P1
The LORD GOD’s plan
for salvation for His chosen people developed over time. Before Jesus
Christ was born, the LORD GOD revealed to Isaiah His Will, and it was
included as prophesy from Isaiah. When Jesus Christ fulfilled the LORD
GOD’s Will and poured out his soul unto death, numbered with the
transgressors, bore the sin of many, and made intercession for
transgressors, the LORD GOD was pleased and gave Jesus seven rewards as
prophesized. The LORD GOD was Will was established by having a way for
His chosen people to be sin free and have a relationship with Him, as
well as having a faithful and knowledgeable Son that became an
intermediary and could make things right between God and man. This
chapter details the connection between sin, redemption and Jesus Christ
What is Christ's relationship to sin ? P2
Jesus Christ is the
redeemer of the "called" people of the LORD GOD, and through His
sacrifice on the cross at Calvary, their transgressions are forgiven by
Him. The process of faith is defined, and the LORD GOD's involvement is
explained in the calling and choosing of each of His people toward Him
and through His Grace giving Christians their belief. Special attention
is paid to the difference between being forgiven of sins by Jesus
Christ, and being washed clean of sins by the blood of Jesus Christ.

How is a sinner spiritually restored?
A Christian that walks
closely with Jesus is devastated to find themselves doing an evil act of
sin. It is imperative that when a Christian sins, that the sin is
acknowledged within themselves and to Jesus Christ as a morally evil
act. Focus on the required efforts necessary to obtain forgiveness and
spiritual restoration after doing a sin not covered by the blood of
Jesus Christ is covered in detail, with the pattern of Psalm 51 used to
focus your prayer for forgiveness effectively.
How is sin avoided?
A servant is responsible for working,
assisting and attending to a master. The master of Natural Life people
is uncleanness. They attend to their lives by being constantly in the
company of and serving their master sin. Through their serving of all
things unclean, they become unrighteous and wicked. The master of
Spiritual Life people is righteousness. They attend to their lives by
being constantly in the company of and serving their master
righteousness. Through their serving of all thing righteous, they become
holy. This chapter gives the steps necessary to avoid serving sin and
moving toward holiness in accordance with the Word of God
How are dead works related to sin?
If a person does not have
the salvation of Jesus Christ, the works he does is dead, no matter how
great the works were. This study makes the connection between sin and
the resulting dead works and subsequent consequences, as well as the
measurement and rewards given by the LORD GOD to all faithful
doers of His living Works. The six types of vessels of gold, silver,
precious stones, wood, hay, and stubble that are the measure of the
works of Christians on the foundation of Jesus Christ are discussed in

measures in you to determine how much faith to give are revealed, and
include your ability to be a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable of the
LORD GOD, non-conforming to this world, able to transform yourself by
the renewing of your mind and able to prove what is the good, acceptable

the family of the LORD GOD, and the ability to hear and follow Jesus
What types of faith must a Christian have?
Many of the things
you need to know about faith are exemplified in our study of Hebrews 11.

through the use of the examples of the great faithful that have walked
before us. Through a detailed study of Hebrews 11, you can
discover the potent and powerful experiences of faith that can be given

What is the baptism of John? P1
John the Baptist was great in the sight of the Lord. He did not drink
wine nor strong drink, and was dedicated to the LORD GOD according to
His Will. He was filled with the Holy Ghost in his mother's womb.
He had both the spirit and power of Elijah. He turned the hearts
of the fathers to the children and turned the disobedient to the wisdom
of the just. His complete spiritual works was focused on making ready a
people, prepared to meet the Lord Jesus Christ. This chapter
covers the birth and life of John the Baptist, a man that Jesus Christ
identified as the greatest prophet that has ever been born of women.
What is the baptism of John? P2
John’s ministry was to make men spiritually prepared to receive the Lord
Jesus Christ. The way he was to accomplish this was straightening their
paths by balancing their beliefs with the new revealed Truth by crying
out in the wilderness “Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths
straight”, filling every valley, bringing every mountain and hill low,
straightening every crooked, smoothing every rough, and enabling all
flesh to see the salvation of the LORD GOD. This was his job
prophesized, and through it he introduced the Baptism of Repentance to
men, to prepare the receiving of Jesus Christ's Baptism of Redemption.
What is the baptism of Jesus Christ?
The wage of sin is death.
When a person dies, the sins dies with him. Death brings a release from
the power of sin. Because we have sin, we must die. Fortunately for us,
Jesus Christ died a real death for a Christian’s sins already. Because
of his sacrifice, a faithful Christian can never die a natural life
death. To enter into the spiritual life of a Christian, and to accept
the opportunity to go immediately to heaven and escape the grave, a
person must die and be buried with Christ to receive redemption for his
sins. The baptism of Christ puts a faithful believer to death. The exact
time of the baptism, is the exact time of that person’s death. He is
alive no more to the world. He is alive no more to the devil. He is
alive no more to himself. He is dead. Symbolically, while a person is
under the baptismal waters, he is in his grave. He has died, as Christ
did, for sin. The dead sinner must rely on grace of the LORD GOD through
Jesus Christ, to be resurrected from death to life. Just as Christ was
resurrected from his death, so shall his faithful followers be through
their belief. As Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the
Father, so shall his faithful followers be raised up from their
baptismal grave through their belief.
What is the baptism of the Holy Ghost?
Apostles of the Lord
Jesus Christ are ambassadors of the Gospel. They are people that have
been disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, and as a result of the Lord‘s
Will, anointed and appointed as Christ’s delegates on earth. The gift of

baptized believer, and is a free gift from the LORD GOD through the
prayer of Jesus Christ, our Lord. All baptized believers receive the

strengthen and refresh their spiritual (inward) and natural (outward)

is able to speak to both of Them with boldness. He fills baptized
believers with righteousness, peace, joy, hope, knowledge, goodness,
ability to admonish others, longsuffering, faith, meekness and
temperance, among many other varied and powerful Works of the LORD GOD.

What is the order of resurrection for men?
Reveals the two
categories of resurrection...the First Resurrection involving the LORD
GOD's people and the Second Resurrection involving the people of the
world, those of no faith, and those without Christ. Your destination
after resurrection is dependant on when you are resurrected. Generally
speaking, most faithful Christians are resurrected with the First
Resurrection, and will be going to Heaven for a time to await for events
of the Last Days to unfold, however...if a Christian has a loss of faith
at the time of death and becomes shipwrecked or has not caused their
original sin to receive death through baptism, then they are destined to
lay in their grave for a while, until the second resurrection occurs,
and they receive judgment by Jesus Christ.
What is the Last Judgment?
Jesus Christ shall come to earth
glorified and sit on his throne of glory to judge the world in the time
designated by the LORD GOD. The holy angels will be with Jesus Christ
during his Last Judgment and all of the nations of the world will be
gathered before Him. Jesus will set the judged men on either side
of him. Those on his right, symbolized by sheep, inherit the kingdom
prepared for them from the foundation of the world. This will be eternal
life. Those judged men, symbolized by goats, are placed on the left side
of him, and are cursed into the everlasting fire that was prepared for
the devil and his angels. This is an everlasting punishment. The
Judgment of Christ is based on the righteous works. If the works of a
person are righteous, he is judged favorably and rewarded with eternal
life. If the works of a person were wicked, they are found guilty and
damned. Many people will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ, and
plead for his mercy and remind him how they prophesized, cast out
devils, and did works in his name. Jesus says that many people that used
his name, actually did works of iniquity, and would be judged
accordingly, by removing them from his presence, and cursing them to
What is the First Middle and Last Judgment?

GOD. The First Judgment is through the study of Romans 5:12-21 which
speaks of original sin and the establishment of death to sin by the LORD
GOD, as well as speaks of the abundance of His grace that through Jesus
Christ people are freed from the judgment of death and offered eternal
life. The Middle Judgment is the judgment that is made to the House of
God, where Christian's completed works will be judged according to
righteousness. The Last Judgment is reserved for those who participate
in the Second Resurrection and who are awaiting judgment from their
graves. This Judgment is done by Jesus Christ on His Judgment seat, and
all people who have ever lived, and must face him and give an account
for their living and dead works.
