What Jesus Did and Taught!

The Doctrine of Christ is everything. Christianity is not about how you feel; nor about how clean you feel
inside; nor how holy you fancy yourself; or what religious experiences you fancy you have had: it all comes 
down to the Person and Work of Christ. Who is He, and what did He do? Christianity is about Christ and
you only know Him through the doctrine of the Apostles.

2Jo 1:9 "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in 
the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son."

1 Tim. 6:3-5: "If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our 
Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but 
doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse 
disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such 
withdraw thyself."

When we believe and abide in the doctrine of the apostles then we have fellowship with the Lord Jesus that 
they knew: 1 John 1:3.

"Now we see that the sum of the gospel consisteth of these two parts, namely, of the doctrine of Christ, and 
of his acts; forasmuch as he did not only bring unto men that embassage which was given him in charge of his 
Father, but also performed all things that could be required of the Messias. He began his kingdom, he 
pacified God with his sacrifice, he purged man’s sins with his own precious blood, he subdued death and the 
devil, he restored us unto true liberty, he purchased righteousness and life for us." John Calvin on Acts 1:1. 
"Jesus began to do and teach."

2Co 3:15, 18 "15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart....But we all, 
[Context,when reading the Gospel] with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed 
into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

The greatest experience you will ever have is when, as God caused light to break forth on that first day of 
creation, the Holy Spirit causes the light to shine into your heart and faith awakens that Jesus is truly the Son 
of God and that His atonement fully satisfies for all your sins. Amen and Amen. 2Co 4:6 "For God, who 
commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of 
the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."
