Crossing The Jordan – by Lakshman Navaratne   For those who trust in a creator, Humanity has no place to go, except return to the Maker! Where do the Dead go (SHEOL)? Warning to the reader! What you are about to read is not even close to what we were taught in traditional Christianity. The content of this article is purely revealed into the heart of the writer, just reading Scripture. This I believe is Grace from the Trinity, “Baptism through Pentecost”. 2000 years ago, Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Corinth: 1 Corinthians, 15: 55, “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55 “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Scripture is the dynamic operation of the Trinity in the Life of Humanity. New life in Christ, begins in ...

CROWN OF GLORY – by Lakshman Navaratne   Our Salvation (the Denarius), paid in full with the blood of the Good Carpenter. The Work of the Good Carpenter: Mark 6:3, “is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him.” After the baptism of Jesus at the Jordan river, at the age of 30: just, 40 days and 40 nights with the angels of the Maker of life, in the desert, Jesus came out Full” of the Spirit. “For the next 3 years, the full Trinity of creation operated in him until he went to the Cross. John 19:28, On the cross Jesus uttered the words “I thirst”, before uttering the words “it is finish”. Reveals to the faithful: until he went to the cross, full Trinity was in him. At ...

CAIN AND ABEL – by Lakshman Navaratne Revelation of Cain as the Tree of Knowledge in scripture and the absolute truth of the Tree of Life as the beginning of Humanity, is the written history of creation as the 66 books of the Bible. This information was dictated to a Hebrew servant, Moses by the Author of Life on Mount Sinai. Apostolic Christianity after the day of Pentecost, is the only acceptable way of Redemption of a human soul back to our Maker. This was also revealed to another Hebrew Servant Saul. True Cleansing Power of the Human soul manifested on 3000 humans on the day of Pentecost. Jesus offering his very own Blood as the “Ransome” for all humanity is the final fulfilment of the offering of Abel, this Blood sacrifice is revealed through every single book of the of scripture. Acts 2:1-4,” When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they ...

GRACE TRAIN (Solomon’s Carriage) – The Apostolic Journey with the Bride – by Lakshman Navaratne GRACE TRAIN (Solomon’s Carriage) The Apostolic Journey with the Bride. Science and Theology dates human existence to million years. Christianity through Scripture dates the appearance of our first human Mother (Eve) to less than 7000 years of the chronological time. Moses documented the kingdom of God a reality on earth through Abraham and his descendants. Only Apostolic Christianity give the believers of Christ the true time line of the appearance of Creator’s Grace on all mankind on the day of Pentecost. Solomon’s Carriage or the Grace Train confides to a believer in Christ: when, where, and how humanity shall end the Marvel of Human existence (God’s Grace) on Paradise earth.      Scripture documents, almost 7000 years ago, our first parents fell from Grace. Following the fall from Grace, our Lord God, our Maker promised to provide humanity ...
