Most people think that that they know who JESUS is. Yet, they don’t rest in HIM and that is because they don’t really know who HE is. When we know just who CHRIST JESUS is we will come to rest in HIM as the SON who has been given to us, our Wonderful, our Counselor, our Mighty GOD, our Everlasting FATHER, and our Prince of Peace. And though HE is so much more than this, this is the introduction of who HE is.

  1. Beloved SON – the begotten of the FATHER
  2. Wonderful – at the mention of HIS name we should be excited in admiration, astonished by who we are in HIM and who HE is to us, and surprised by the evidence of what HE is doing in our lives.
  3. Counselor – HE advises us in our conduct and integrity.
  4. Mighty GOD – very loving, very forgiving, very powerful, very strong, very bold, has great command, very loud, very great, very forcible, very great in intellect and acquirements, very large, very important and momentous, very greatly wise and thoughtful.
  5. Everlasting FATHER – enduring forever, perpetual/continues indefinitely, endless, un-intermitted, eternal, beginning and end, past, middle and future.
  6. Prince of Peace – sovereign, chief and independent ruler, the SON of the KING, prince of life, chief of all priest, prince of the sanctuary, prince of quiet and tranquility, prince of freedom from agitation and disturbance of the mind, prince of freedom and internal commotion, prince of freedom from arguments and suites, prince of freedom from fear, terror, anger, anxiety, prince of quietness of the mind, calm, heavenly rest, harmonious, be at peace due to or reconciliation.

The above is only a wee bit of how mighty our GOD is. My life is not long enough to express verbally or in writing just how awesome GOD truly is. Now let’s get on with the topic of this blog.

The LORD has called us in HIS righteousness and HE will continually hold our hand. HE will keep us and HE has already given to us HIS covenant for the people, we are to assist in the opening of blind eyes just as someone assisted us by telling us the goodness of CHRIST JESUS. We must help to bring people out of the prison of sin because in this prison house there is no light but this house is filled with darkness. The LORD our GOD is our Creator and HE is the ONE who formed us in our mother’s womb by knitting us together. So cease from being afraid CHRIST JESUS has redeemed us, we have been called by our name and we belong to HIM. CHRIST JESUS is our Savior. Each of us who have been called by name has been created for HIS glory. The LORD is the ONE who has called us from our mother’s womb and while yet still in her womb GOD mentioned our names, HE has created our mouths to be sharp swords of righteousness. We are kept hidden by HIS hand and are polished arrows in the case where HE keeps HIS arrows. JESUS is our Maker and husband, HIS name is LORD of Hosts, HE is our Redeemer, the HOLY ONE, HE is called the GOD of all the earth and the LORD has called us. We are the house of the LORD, not the buildings where we assemble once or twice a week. And from HIS house/our bodies, we are to pray. We keep asking GOD to step in for whatever reason but GOD has called us to be the repairer of the breach/that which is broken; to fill up the whole which has been left by hurt, anger, and pain. We are the ones to be used to restore people. We are the ones to restore the streets back to the people of GOD for habitation by taking them back from the evil one. This is the Good News of our salvation the Holy Spirit of the LORD GOD was in JESUS and the LORD anointed JESUS to preach the Good News to everyone poor in spirit/void of the Holy Spirit. JESUS was sent to us to heal our broken hearts, HE set us free from captivity and now we must live lives that are in freedom in HIM, HE opened up the prison gates and set the righteous free and HE opened up the prison gates so that those who were or are bound in sin and now believes in HIM will come forward and begin their life of freedom in HIM. CHRIST JESUS consoles us and provides us with beauty for those ashes we had, daily we receive the oil of joy to no longer be in mourning, we are wearing our garments of praise so that the spirit of heaviness will no longer have its way with us and we are called trees of righteousness and are planted by the LORD so that HE will be glorified in us. We are no longer forsaken, destitute, deprived, waste, ruined, neglected, destroyed, and alone. Because we are called by the LORD our GOD and HE delights in us. Know who you are in CHRIST JESUS call yourself as HE calls us which is HIS Holy people and HIS redeemed.

The LORD has called our name green olive tree, lovely and of good fruit. We are called by the name of the LORD. As a part of our daily nutritional diet, we are to eat the Word of the LORD unlike our natural diet the LORD’s diet provides us with joy and rejoicing within our heart. Because we are called by HIS name the LORD GOD of hosts. We are saved and we live safely in JESUS who is called the LORD our RIGHTEOUSNESS. Ah, I’m getting so filled up with the need to express great pleasure in my GOD JESUS. CHRIST JESUS has restored our health HE has healed all of our wounds.

Look towards Jerusalem my dear one in CHRIST JESUS because it is called the City of Truth, the Mountain of the LORD of Host and the Mountain of the Holy One.

Beloved siblings through CHRIST JESUS we have received grace and we are called by CHRIST JESUS. All things work together for our good that is to those of us who love GOD and are called according to HIS purpose. Because HE knew us before the foundation of all HIS creations HE predestined HE conformed us to be in the image of HIS SON JESUS, that HE may be the first-born of many brothers. Beyond what has been said and written those HE decreed beforehand were called by HIM and those HE foreordained HE justified moreover the justified has been glorified in HIM. No longer are we outcast and unbeloved because in CHRIST JESUS we are called HIS people, sons of the living GOD.

We are sanctified in CHRIST JESUS, called to be HIS saints along with anyone who calls on the name of our LORD CHRIST JESUS. We have been given the grace of GOD by CHRIST to be enriched in everything by HIM in all manner of speaking and knowledge even the testimony of CHRIST which is confirmed within us so that we will not be lacking any gift as we eagerly wait for the full revelation of CHRIST who will confirm us to the very end that we are blameless in the day of our LORD CHRIST JESUS. GOD is faithful and HE called us into a relationship with HIS SON, CHRIST JESUS. Notice that I wrote relationship and not religion. It’s a hurtful thing when people desire signs and earthly wisdom over having faith in CHRIST. But regardless we are going to continue to share the crucifixion of JESUS, HIS burial, HIS rising from the dead and HIS ascension up above the clouds to be seated at the right hand of HIS and our FATHER. CHRIST is the power and wisdom of GOD. The wisdom of GOD is foolishness to everyone who believes to be educated or wise and the weakness of GOD is stronger than all mankind. That’s if we can wrap our minds around GOD being weak because by far there is no weakness within HIM, remember HE is the Mighty GOD and where there is Mightiness weakness cannot be found. Glory only in the LORD our GOD and see you’re calling in HIM for our calling has nothing to do with our flesh, nothing to do with our education, knowledge or wisdom, nothing to do with how strong we appear or how elevated in stature because of who we are or what we have. GOD has called us to peace. Live life as GOD has called us to live whatever GOD has given to us and however, GOD has called us live accordingly. Cease from being what we see others in the body of CHRIST are, stop self-elevating yourselves to appear important doing so without the proper equipping from the Holy Spirit will cause you more harm and danger than you expected. Remain in the calling of which you have been called if GOD desires to elevate you HE will.

Chosen

download.jpg

Oh, to be selected by the FATHER. The blood washed are actually handpicked by the FATHER through the salvation of HIS beloved SON CHRIST JESUS. Because it was predestined that we hear the voice of the Holy Spirit speak to us while we were groping around in the darkness of sin. And because we were taken in preference we were also given the ability to share CHRIST with others without fear.

We all are not chosen to stand behind a pulpit or to pastor a congregation of an assembly. However, we are chosen to invite and share our testimony with others who do not have a relationship with CHRIST JESUS so that HIS blood will begin to wash them and flow within their bodies. It should be our desire to cause the Holy Spirit to live within another person who is empty of life because He does not live within them. Today, the Holy Spirit no longer comes on the chosen ones of GOD and then leaves. No, today, the Holy Spirit resides in all of the chosen ones who believe in the CHRIST. This is so we may announce the goodness of our LORD and the salvation HE has gifted us with. As the comedian, Martin Lawrence said, “Run and tell that”.

Some of us do not declare the goodness of our LORD because we have been distracted with the cares of this world. I’m not trying to write that we should live with our heads up in the clouds all day as though we are lovesick, you remember how we are when we have met someone who loves us and we love in return. If we did this we would get nothing accomplished, however, we allow the news, employment, family matters and whatever else take us away from recalling to memory who we are in CHRIST and who CHRIST is within us. Many who are in the body of CHRIST are much like Martha the sister of Lazarus and Mary. Martha was busy with all the details of being a good hostess that she missed out on worshipping JESUS through resting. Not the type of resting where we do not take care of the task set before us at our place of employment, school, and home. But she did not know and understand the meaning of true resting in HIM to provide her with the ability to trust in HIM to work her life out for her. And, when we are distracted by the cares of this world be it those things that we enjoy partaking in or people we enjoy being with. We have missed out on that which we are to do at the beginning of our day and that is to worship and be thankful for the rest that was given to us while we were asleep, for our waking up, for the goodness of the LORD, and to share with the LORD the task at hand that require our attention so that we will not be overwhelmed and for the playing that we desire to do with others. We are distracted from asking the FATHER what is it that HE will like for us to do today and to avail ourselves over to HIM making ourselves available to HIM. Because when we are distracted we put on again the Adamic character that we once had before coming to CHRIST and begin to blame everyone for our stress and believe that the LORD has no compassion for our daily cares. Martha actually said to JESUS “LORD do you not care” and let’s be honest those who do not understand the love of CHRIST believe this though they may not say this. It is in our actions and emotions of being overwhelmed that we display that which Martha said to JESUS. So what is it that Mary did that JESUS said HE will not take away from her? Mary rested. She knew that JESUS is the answer to her life and her joy. Mary gave an ear to hear the voice of the LORD GOD. Mary trusted.

We the chosen are to pray about everything that concerns us be it business affairs to dating someone, marrying someone or anything else of importance to us. We are to pray about the place of worship that we are to be planted in also. Nothing is to be left to chance concerning the chosen of the Almighty GOD. No one knows the heart of mankind which are our desires, motives, and thoughts which are in the heart as the LORD our GOD does, this is why we must pray to ask HIM what we are to do. Never be pushed and rushed to make a decision share with the FATHER that we have been given a time frame if we have and that we need to hear HIS answer. If we don’t hear HIS answer the chance is maybe we should back away because what we want to do is not for HIS chosen. In these cases, we will feel a calm, a peace flowing within us if we must decline from doing a thing. Another indication we should be sensitive to is if we do go ahead with a venture because we have not heard an answer from the FATHER, our conscience must be calm and peace flowing within us. Once we begin to feel that nagging within us wondering if we are doing the right thing, this is our indication that we must back out of whatever we have decided to take on. Never be ashamed of confessing on the LORD our Savior. Do we understand that we have been deliberately chosen by GOD? We are chosen instruments of CHRIST JESUS to bear HIS name before people. Know with assurance that GOD shows no partiality among HIS chosen because everyone who belongs to HIM all over this planet will give and show HIM the utmost respect, and the only work that we work is that of righteousness which comes from relationship with GOD through CHRIST JESUS and in this we are seeking HIM daily and often. We do not practice a religion which comes from mankind. We who are in a relationship with CHRIST know the message of peace through CHRIST JESUS who is LORD of all. We the chosen have been baptized just as JESUS was baptized and we are to ask for the anointing of the Holy Spirit who will operate within us and provide us with the power to do and say that which we have been instructed. We have the ability to pray for anyone we encounter for their healing this is a good thing that we can do as well as to follow all that CHRIST has requested of us to do and say. We should be personal eyewitnesses of those things HE has done in our lives as well as others. When we attend a worship service at our local assembly are people being prayed for to receive their deliverance and healing? And do we see the effects of this? If so, this is an eyewitness account of what CHRIST is doing in the lives of others today and because HE does things for others we are assured that HE will do the same for us. When JESUS CHRIST was crucified on our behalf it was not because mankind put HIM to death because no one has the ability to kill GOD, however, HE gave up HIS life willingly for all mankind and on the third day the FATHER raised CHRIST up from the dead to life and many saw HIM, HE was not hidden, HE walked in the open for everyone who is chosen to see and they dined with HIM. The commandment that HE left with the apostles is for us who are chosen also and that is to share with people through solemn testimony that CHRIST is the One who has been appointed and ordained by the living GOD to judge both the living and the dead. In the name of JESUS whoever will believe in HIM, you will receive remission/be released of your sins. Ooh-wee, we have been chosen by the living GOD who is our FATHER in CHRIST JESUS to know HIS will and to see CHRIST as well as hear HIS voice directly from HIS mouth not to rely on others to tell us what the LORD has said. HE speaks to all HIS chosen because we are heirs of the promises.

Cease from being concerned with what others may say or think of you. The living GOD has chosen what appears to be foolish to put to shame those who perceive themselves to be wise. It is the living GOD who chooses the weak to place shame on those who believe they are strong. People who are known to be mean-spirited, those who have been counted as worthless, low in rank, have no dignity and any other way that people devalue people. People may see others this way but once we come to CHRIST we are used by HIM to bring nothing to what others value.

The chosen are beloved by the FATHER through CHRIST when we were poor in faith and now our faith has become rich and now we are also heirs of the promised kingdom because we love HIM.

We have come to CHRIST who is our living true and tried stone who so many have and are still rejecting. But just as CHRIST is chosen so are we and not only that but we are being built up in HIM. Ah, glory we the chosen are a generation who are of the royal priesthood, we are a holy nation, we are HIS own special people and we must tell others of HIS ability and desire to take us out of the darkness of sin to bring us into HIS marvelous light and we will worship HIM. We are GOD’s people who have obtained HIS forgiveness, grace, love, and mercy.

CHRIST JESUS is the chosen Lamb of GOD and HE has overcome all evil and their god satan. Only CHRIST JESUS is the LORD of lords, HE is the KING of kings and because we are with HIM rather than continually being against HIM we are HIS faithful chosen.

inheritance-in-Christ

Are we familiar with our heavenly inheritance? Our heavenly inheritance that the beloved has when we believe and confess CHRIST openly through the mouth from the heart is this. We have a living hope which is boundless in the mercy of CHRIST because HE rose from the dead and proved HIMself to be alive. In HIS rising we are born-again not of flesh and blood which is human effort but in the Spirit of the Almighty GOD. We instantly become that which is beyond the ability to change and decay through perishing. We are no longer soiled, tarnished and fading. This is the inheritance that awaits us in heaven. Our earthly flesh is made from the dust of the ground and it returns back to the ground daily and then finally through the decay of death. Because of our faith in CHRIST we are being guarded in GOD’s power until the time will come when we will receive the full inheritance of our salvation that will be revealed in the last day. This is why we should be overjoyed instead of looking as though we are sucking on lemons or drinking sour pickle juice. As long as we remain alive on earth we are going to experience some distress through trials and we will be tested, this is only to reveal to ourselves how genuine our faith in CHRIST is. GOD will test us but never tempt us. We must know that our faith in CHRIST is more valuable than any gemstone and will be judged whether or not we are worthy of praise, glory, and honor of CHRIST when HE is revealed. None of us have seen CHRIST yet we say that we love, believe, exult and show overly expressions of joy regarding HIM. This is because we are receiving daily the results of our faith in CHRIST the salvation of our souls. Prophets have prophesied, searched and asked with a deep interrogation about this salvation. They needed to find out who this was to happen to and when. We get this way when the Spirit of CHRIST works within us we become earnestly inquisitive about CHRIST. Because the Holy Spirit is the One who was working in the Prophets He pointed out to them the predictions of sufferings that CHRIST will endure and the glories which will follow. This was spoken to the Prophets of old because they were taught by the Holy Spirit that the information was not to be kept by them but was to be shared because the knowledge that they were given was not for the timeframe in which they lived. But was for those that were born and lived before us to know as well as for us today. And we too are to share the Good News of CHRIST the difference is that we don’t have to share that CHRIST will suffer because HE already has for us. We are to share what HE has done for us as well as what HE taught while HE lived among us on earth. This same Holy Spirit who never changes will equip us to speak the truth about the Truth/CHRIST. Ha-ha, it is wonderful to know that even the angels in heaven are taking a long look into what CHRIST has done and is doing for mankind because they do not understand them. Or rather, they do not understand us for making CHRIST so very irrelevant.

CHRIST suffered only the once for our sins and only the once was a complete requirement because HIS suffering perfectly paid in full our sin debt. And though CHRIST suffered and died in the hopes that all mankind will come back to GOD it was known by HIM that all mankind will not believe in HIM and because of that many will die in their sins and descend down into hell and the lake of fire. CHRIST died in the flesh but CHRIST was made alive again by the Spirit of GOD. The same Holy Spirit that will come and reside within us will help us to share CHRIST with others.

did_this

Because CHRIST suffered for us in HIS flesh we should be willing to suffer for HIM in our flesh but we find this to be too much to ask of us. When we put on the mind of CHRIST and discontinue living willy-nilly in the sin of our flesh which lusts after those things that we believe we are in need of but actually we don’t need them at all. Then we will understand what it means to live in the rest and will of GOD. For all of us one day is too many days to live in sin but for many of us who are living years, decades and generations {that is if we have as many as five generations of our family living}, in sin and now we and our house have come to CHRIST and yet we continue to do what we know is a sin. Don’t we know that we have spent more than enough time living in our past lifetime as a heathen? We did everything we wanted to do and often said that we were hurting no one but ourselves. Only to find out that not only were we hurting ourselves but we were hurting those who love us. Once we have changed our minds from feeding our flesh in the depravity of sin many will think that we are strange or religious when actually we are in a relationship with CHRIST. If anyone has a negative word to say know that we are in great company because they spoke and still speak negatively about CHRIST. Everyone who chooses not to believe in CHRIST will have to give an account to HIM the only One who can and will judge the unrighteous. Before coming to CHRIST we were already dead and unrighteous but once we came to CHRIST we became immediately alive and righteous in HIM.

The prophetic word of CHRIST is trustworthy and those who believe in HIM do not or no longer follow after lies. We know about the power and the return of CHRIST and have a desire to share this with others. CHRIST is majestic, HE has dignity within HIS person/appearance, and HE is grand and princely. CHRIST received from HIS FATHER honor and glory when HIS FATHER said from heaven while CHRIST was on the earth and others heard this, “this is MY Beloved SON, in HIM I AM well pleased”. Mankind the very image of GOD who created us will do very well when we take regard with care, taking notice of HIS truth and attend to HIS Word. CHRIST is the light that shines in the darkest of places when HE moves into our hearts the morning star shines in the dawn. And be aware of this fact, no prophesy of the scriptures is to be kept to oneself and explained falsely, true prophesy does not come by the will of mankind, true prophecy comes from the Spirit of GOD who urges HIS Words to be shared among others.

This is how we will know who actually belongs to CHRIST and who actually has CHRIST inside of their heart. Those that keep the commandments of CHRIST. Because those who say that they know CHRIST yet will willingly and knowingly do their own will and not that of the FATHER is a liar and the Truth is not present inwardly. Keep the Word of GOD and truly the love of GOD is being perfected within. It is by this that we will know and so will others know that we are in CHRIST. Live as CHRIST lived. If you say that CHRIST is living within you and yet you hate your CHRISTian sibling or can’t get along than you are filled with darkness. When we love our CHRISTian sibling and try as much as possible to get along we have HIS light within us and we will refrain from stumbling and falling.

Those of us who truly believe  will adhere to and we trust and we rely on the fact that JESUS is the CHRIST/MESSIAH is born-again of the living Almighty GOD. And those of us who love the FATHER has to love CHRIST the FATHER’s First born. And because of this, we are able to love all our siblings because we know HIS order and we keep HIS commands and teaching. We are born of GOD and because of this we are victorious it is our faith that causes us to be victorious of anything in this world. Victory only belongs to the children of the Highest GOD our FATHER through JESUS because we believe that HE is the Beloved SON and that HE is the CHRIST. The commandment of CHRIST has been the same from the very beginning and that is we are to love each other. We are to live out HIS commandments.

Those who have been beheaded because they refused to worship the beast or his image and have not received on their foreheads or hands will reign with CHRIST for one thousand years.

This is the conclusion of this six-part blog series. I hope that you have been encouraged, informed and inspired by what has been shared with you.

The grace (blessing and favor) of the LORD CHRIST JESUS (the MESSIAH) be with all the saints (GOD’s holy people, those set apart for GOD, to be, as it were, exclusively HIS). Amen (so let it be)! [AMP version of the Holy Bible].

CHRIST-pt.5

Faithful

I’m certain when we think of the Apostles we never consider the One Apostle who is our HIGH PRIEST and that is CHRIST the One who we must confess publicly as ours. HE is the One who was sent on a mission to preach the gospel. HE was and is faithful to the FATHER who appointed HIM to be our Apostle and HIGH PRIEST. CHRIST deserves much more honor than Moses who was faithful in the house as a servant but CHRIST is the builder of the house because each and everything is built by GOD. CHRIST as SON was and is faithful over GOD’s house and we are that house and we must hold tight to the courage and confidence inspired by what we hope for in CHRIST. The Holy Spirit asks that when we hear His voice that we do not harden our hearts and turn a deaf ear to what we hear from Him. Do not fulfill and continue to rebel against CHRIST. The Israelites tested and tried the means of CHRIST by which the presence, quality, or genuineness was actual. Even after they experienced and saw the works of the LORD. We too do the very same thing. Many times in the Old Testament we will read about the anger of GOD and how HE let loose on those who were disobedient. Today, HE does not leash out in anger but rather provides grace to the disobedient and grace and mercy to the obedient. The disobedient do not have a clue about the ways of GOD through CHRIST because their hearts are far from HIM. And this is why they are not restful but rather restless. CHRISTians should not be so, we are to enter into HIS rest and stay there. We must surrender our hearts to the LORD GOD daily ask HIM to remove any darkness of unbelief out of us and replace that emptiness with the fruit of HIS Spirit. Be encouraging to one another, after all, how can anyone be discouraged when we are encouraged throughout the day as well as we encourage others. The lack of being encouraged will cause our hearts to grow cold and hard because of the slick and sly way sin creeps in. We are participators of CHRIST when we hold on to our faith. Remember to daily hear the voice of the Holy Spirit so that our hearts will not become hard and rebellious. CHRIST is forever our IGH PRIEST and not because HE appointed HIMself and neither is it because HE glorified HIMself. CHRIST is our forever HIGH PRIEST because the FATHER of glory our highest GOD in the heavens announced by making public that CHRIST is HIS SON and that CHRIST is a Priest forever in the order of Melchizedek. While CHRIST was on the earth HE prayed specific and special request for the things that HE not only needed but wanted. We have all at one time or another been led astray about what we are to pray for. But in my maturity in CHRIST I’ve learned that we can pray for what we need and what we want. Because CHRIST did so, we should as well. CHRIST prayed with an eagerness to get what HE needed and wanted, HE had a longing desire for the things HE prayed for. There were times when CHRIST prayed that HE cried due to the urgency. I know that some of us have been here. But maybe the request went nowhere because of our hearts faith. CHRIST as a human did not want to die after all who in their right mind wants to die? But because CHRIST had a healthy reverent respect for HIS FATHER though HE is CHRIST the SON, CHRIST learned obedience in the flesh because HE suffered. And because HE is perfect in HIS flesh CHRIST became the author and the finisher of our eternal salvation in faith to all who will obey HIM. But we are not willing to suffer but so much for CHRIST. HE is called by GOD to be our HIGH PRIEST. CHRIST received the promise from the FATHER which has the quality of being incapable of error or mistake. We as CHRISTians have perfected outward the ability to debate over elementary principles of CHRIST. GOD willing the elementary will be taken care of in time and if not, so what. We must leave behind us the elementary and initial lessons learned about CHRIST and grow up in the maturity of CHRIST. Cease from remaining and returning to the foundation of turning our backs on sin which led to our death through repentance, we confessed our faith now continue to trust without wavering. Why are we making a big production [dead formality] about repentance after we’ve done so in the beginning when we returned to the FATHER by faith in CHRIST? Our elementary learning was based on purification, the laying on of hands [when this is to be done], the resurrection of CHRIST and us in HIM, and the eternal judgment along with its punishment. We’ve learned them or we should have learned them, now, move on to grow up in CHRIST. The Word of GOD teaches us that it is impossible for those of us who have already tasted the heavenly gift of GOD, been once and for all enlightened and are sharers of the Holy Spirit to be restored and brought back again to repentance. Doing this is legalism, we are demonstrating ourselves to be as the Israelites who had to go to the High Priest with their offering to be inspected after the High Priest received the offering, laid his hands on the offering to transfer the sin onto the animal and then in the killing of  it the person was free to go. Do we not believe that the suffering and death of CHRIST the onetime fulfilled what we stand in need of sufficiently? Why do we find it necessary to continue executing CHRIST over and over again and placing HIM to public shame over and over again? Abraham who is the father of faith received the promise that we must take hold of because we are the seed of Abraham. The promise that was given without the ability to be a mistake, without the possibility of failure is that Abraham will be blessed and he will have many decedents of which we are, that is those of us who have the faith of CHRIST living within us. GOD is not a man that HE will lie, HIS promise and oath have been demonstrated so we are to run and take a stronghold of the hope which strongly encourages us and will keep us encouraged. Our hope is assured, our safety and anchor went through to what is inside that veil, and CHRIST went in as our HIGH PRIEST on our behalf. I wrote that we have the tendency to put CHRIST to an open public shame again and again and we crucify HIM again and again out of our ignorance of not knowing what our initial open repentance did for us when we came to CHRIST in faith. Though we will have the tendency from time to time to commit sin in our flesh and we will become remorseful about our actions. There is no need to openly return to the foundation of repentance just decide in the mind to no longer do what we have done, stop allowing guilt to overtake us. GOD knew that we would continue to do that which we are familiar with until we grow up in CHRIST by becoming mature in HIM. This is why our sins are forgiven the past, the present and the future. When the FATHER looks at us, all HE sees is HIS SON’s precious blood on us. HE does not see any sin. It is because of HIS death that HE is the defense attorney, and the mediator, of the Last Will and Testament, the New Covenant. HIS death has set us free from the moral duty of the law and the fact that we remained in breach of the commands. We have been called to receive the promised eternal inheritance. In order for a will to become effective, there must be a death and that death must be proven. As long as there is a doubt that the maker of the will is still alive or that the death cannot be proven, the will is ineffective. CHRIST has not entered into an earthly sanctuary made by the efforts of human hands. CHRIST entered the Holiest Place not made by man, not a copy of what heaven is like but HE actually entered into heaven. HE is there on our behalf in the very presence of GOD. HE is not in heaven to present HIMself repeatedly as our offering and sacrifice as the former High Priest did by offering and sacrificing animals year after year with blood that was not their own and if it was it could not do what CHRIST blood does. If GOD knew that the blood of CHRIST was not sufficient to clean and forgive those who believe and trust in HIM, CHRIST would have had to die beginning with Adam and Eve and for every human thereafter. However, because GOD knew that the blood of CHRIST is sufficient to cleanse and forgive HE only had a need to die the once. It is we through our ignorance and rebellion that continues to crucify CHRIST through continual repentance and unbelief of who HE is and our being saved and forgiven through HIM. Humans die once and then are judged when we die and are raised in CHRIST we have already been judged righteous. So when we go to sleep and are buried or cremated CHRIST will return and deliver us who are eagerly waiting for HIM. Others will die, be judged and sentenced to eternal damnation all because they did not believe in CHRIST. The death of CHRIST perfected the sanctified in HIM which are HIS believer in HIM. CHRIST offered one sacrifice for our sins forever and then HE went and sat HIMself down at the right hand of the FATHER. HIS work is complete and we are to now enter into HIS rest as HE is resting from HIS work. HE is patiently waiting for HIS enemies to realize that they no longer have authority or power and to become HIS footstool. The Holy Spirit is our witness He reminds us what CHRIST has said. “This is the covenant which I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: “I will put MY laws on their hearts, and write it on their minds” HE then adds, “and their sins and their wickedness’s I will remember no more”. Notice how CHRIST has said that the laws which we will have from now on will be HIS laws not the Laws of Moses. Where forgiveness offerings, sacrifices, and continual repentance is no longer needed or required. We all when we realize that we’ve done or said something stupid or in error, we say aloud that which we have said or have done acknowledging our error. Sometimes we laugh at our error and sometimes we get a wee bit upset and then we move on correcting our mistake by no longer doing what we’ve done or superseding what we’ve done with what should have been done. This is how we should be when we acknowledge what we are saying or what we are doing that is not pleasing to GOD. Just change our position, change our mind not to repeat that again. Live in the full freedom and confidence that we have been given. Boldly go into the throne room and keep our DADDY company in the blood of CHRIST. Come forward, draw near to the FATHER knowing that our hearts have been purified and that we have qualified and an absolute assurance which is engineered by our faith in CHRIST leaning on GOD’s absolute goodness, power and wisdom. Hold on and keep without doubting the hope that we’ve obtained. Acknowledge, confess, and love it with sincerity because GOD has promised and HE is reliable and HE will always be faithful to HIS Word who is CHRIST.

Heb. 3:3-4, 6-15, 5:5, 6:1-2, 4-6, 14,17-20, 9:14-17, 24-28, 10:12-19, 22-23

CHRIST-pt.4

5c6819ad68f12e9cbccc0adf9ded-is-philosophy-and-religion-in-conflict-with-each-otherBelieve it or not, there are more born-again CHRISTians living under legalism rather than the freedom of GOD’s gift of grace. No longer must males be circumcised to prove that they are in agreement with the Holiest GOD, after all when we read about the males who were circumcised they did not follow the laws as it was required. This is because the flesh is incapable of obeying what is good in CHRIST without assistance. No longer must we jump through hoops to prove who we are in GOD through CHRIST. CHRIST, if we have believed by faith, has already circumcised our hearts spiritually and we were buried with HIM in the baptism of CHRIST and just as CHRIST rose from the dead so did we because we believe in the working of our living GOD who also raised CHRIST from the dead first. So, we must live our lives on this earth with the knowledge that we were once dead and uncircumcised because of sin in our flesh. And, now we are alive in CHRIST who has forgiven us of all our sins, past, present and future. CHRIST has wiped away, erased, and made it null and void to follow requirements that we never had a chance at fully obeying in the first place. We can’t obey our parents, teachers, minor governmental laws and such so what makes us think that we can obey the Ten Commandments and the Laws of Moses? We are victorious only because CHRIST is our victor who overcame everything [all, nothing missing] on behalf of us. So eat what you desire, live your life in a manner that is not harmful to you. We all must know our limitations and what is not harmful to our bodies as well as what is not pleasing to our LORD and Savior CHRIST. When people instill traditions and requirements on people believing that this is how GOD desires us to live our lives as proof to everyone that we belong to HIM we begin to look like the sour pickle-faced folks and we should not want to look like them. We have a radiance from within and we smile and reflect the joy that we have in CHRIST. We don’t place credence in what color the moon is or the position of the stars alignment, why the weather is hotter or colder than normal, and which day of the week we must gather together to worship our LORD in our local assembly. None of this means anything to our GOD through CHRIST. Recognize true humility from people, cease from worshipping angels, Mary or the Apostles, don’t allow anyone especially yourself to cheat you from the reward. Have you ever heard the term carnal Christian? Well, if not let me explain who they are. They are folk who say that they are Christians yet there actions and conversation have no reflection of CHRIST whatsoever. I like to also call these people professors of CHRIST they will say but they don’t live. Another type of CHRISTian is the blood washed, these people possess CHRIST and though at times we who are possessors resurrect the old nature of ourselves from time to time. We often return to CHRIST because we are growing up in HIM and eventually those things that we either love so much that is not like CHRIST or those things that set us off will disintegrate from our lives replaced by the fruit of the Spirit and we will never miss it. Possessors of CHRIST will look for what is in heaven that they can take hold of and pull it down for our use, we don’t pollute our minds with trivial things of this earth but daily learn how to live as citizens of heaven. Thank GOD that the dead former us have no place with CHRIST and that upon HIS return we will all who belong to HIM will appear with HIM in HIS glory. It will take time for us to mature in the ways of CHRIST but we can do this with HIS help and HIS help is the Holy Spirit which HE has given to us. Pick something about yourself that you no longer want to do, give that over to CHRIST and find scripture that we can daily concentrate on until we realize or someone tells us that we no longer do this or that. This is the time that we will see the victory of our being overcomers through CHRIST. No longer remain or operate as the sons of disobedience do, they are called son because their father is satan just as we were once his children. But glory to GOD in the highest we are no longer his. Remember that we have put on our new self through CHRIST and that we are in the image of CHRIST because HE is the One who created us. GOD did not free us to continue being prejudice because of a person’s skin coloring or where they come from. Once they become a part of the body of CHRIST that should be enough for us to boldly proclaim that he/she is our brother/sister in CHRIST. Our character and integrity in CHRIST is maturing so, what does a blood washed, possessor of CHRIST look like? We are merciful, kind, humble, not easily irritated, patient, and forgiving. Who are we not to forgive our siblings in CHRIST or for that matter any person? We know that we are forgiven in CHRIST and some of us were hum-dingers, so just as we have been forgiven we must forgive. Put love on and never take it off allow GOD’s peace to rule in our heart and please become thankful. The Word which is CHRIST should be living in our hearts providing us with a wealth of wisdom from the Holy Spirit. Because it is He who teaches us consistently if we let Him through our listening, obeying and application of the Word in our lives. Now, whatever we have need of doing be it for ourselves or at the request of others, do so in the name of CHRIST JESUS and be thankful to GOD our FATHER. We will not be moved by the trials of life we must endure rather we will band together and encourage one another and re-establish the faith that we have. Let’s face it, sometimes when we are knocked down we allow our faith to be rocked/shaken this is why we all must have someone steady that we can speak with who will not only listen but will inspire and encourage us to get up in our remembrance of what CHRIST has done and who we are in HIM. CHRIST has come through for us in past situations that we have faced so, what makes us think that HE will not assist us where we are in these trials? Don’t allow the enemy to trick you or for that matter continue to speak to you in your ears. There is a prayer for the body of CHRIST which I am including.

Now may our GOD and FATHER HIMself, and our LORD CHRIST JESUS. And may the LORD make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that HE may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our GOD and FATHER at the coming of our LORD CHRIST JESUS with all HIS saints.

Take comfort in the knowledge within our hearts that CHRIST is coming back. I am prompted to share that in most funerals or home going services that we attend we are rarely encouraged by what we hear during the service. Either the service is all about the person in the box, urn or a beautiful picture which is displayed for all to see. This is the time that we must share the gospel of CHRIST because most of the members of the audience attend worship service weekly or monthly for that matter. Most of the attendees may attend service on Easter, Mother’s Day, and CHRISTmas. We need to cease from speaking ignorance as to keep the immature CHRISTians ignorant and the non-believers from knowing what actually happens if and when we die. CHRISTians know this, that we are only asleep because we are in CHRIST and possess an eternal hope in HIM. We believed just as CHRIST died and was buried we too will die and be buried or cremated but regardless of what is done with our remains we will rise again. And for those who are still alive when CHRIST returns we will not ascend into the air to meet CHRIST before those who are asleep in HIM. CHRIST is coming back with a shout from the archangel and the blast from the shofar of GOD. Those who fell asleep in the marvelous hope in CHRIST will rise first and then those who are alive still and possess CHRIST in their hearts will all be caught up together to meet CHRIST in the air. And we will remain with CHRIST forever and ever.

There is coming a time when those who have professed CHRIST will abandon, depart and desert what they once proclaimed to believe in CHRIST. This is because the heat will be on, the pressure will be applied to anyone alive to survive carnally. These people are deceived by the knowledge that CHRIST has already returned. Just as there are people today who believe in the predicted date that usually comes about every Easter. We are not to give importance to or occupy ourselves with lies that foster and promote useless speculations and cause us to question rather than our acceptance in our faith of GOD’s administration and the divine training that is in faith. Also, the man of sin must be revealed and he will be after all he is the son of destruction and ruin. This fool will oppose everything of the living GOD and CHRIST and he will exalt himself because he believes that his father satan will place him to sit in the temple of the holiest GOD to show those who follow him through deceit that he is a god. However, this idiot will be destroyed with the consuming breath of the LORD and HIS glorious brightness when HE returns to gather HIS elect. Understand that the workings of CHRIST is everlasting and the workings of satan are destructive and temporary as well as limited copies of what our GOD does. What the son of destruction and all those who follow him will receive is hell and the lake of fire because they did not receive within them CHRIST. They could have chosen to be loved and saved but they did not. And because of this GOD will send strong delusion they will be deceived and mislead within their minds. They will believe whatever lies they listen to and they all will be condemned who do not believe in the Truth but will enjoy the pleasure of being unrighteous.

We who are blood washed and understand that we are forgiven have so much to be thankful for. We were all once enemies of GOD and we all spoke of the Supreme Being in terms of being irreverent; spoke reproachfully of GOD using HIS name in profanity or saying HIS name as though we are saying gee-whiz or golly, we persecuted others, and were prideful, contemptuous of other, overbearing, and  domineering. However, the grace that we received from CHRIST is exceedingly abundant with faith and love. CHRIST came into the world to save us not to condemn us and it is for this reason that we have obtained mercy from HIM.

Col. 2:11-23, 3:1-17; 1 Thess. 3:3-5, 11-13; 4:13-18; 2 Thess. 2:3-11; 1 Tim. 1:13-18

002-from-fall-to-pictures

All of us make purchases with or without the use of coupons. The only time most of us think of the word redeem is when we are using our coupons and this is only because the word is actually written on the paper or digital device. How many of you with the exception of the CHRISTmas holiday ever tried to return or exchange a purchased item from a store without a receipt? Impossible to follow through on the transaction right? Any place of business that sells merchandise has signs posted for the customer to observe and understand the redemption process that when we follow the directions will be hassle-free. Try to redeem without doing what you the customer must adhere to and you just may leave the store without satisfaction. Well, CHRIST redeemed mankind from the curse of the law, HE purchased mankind back from the hands of satan and all we need do is believe in HIM about our being redeemed. Those who believe in CHRIST are spiritually blessed. CHRIST chose us we did not choose HIM and HE did so before HE created the foundation of the world. Mankind was predestined to live a holy life and be without blame in the love of CHRIST. Some parents who adopted a child or children are ashamed to use the word adoption. The word is not a dirty word by the very definition anyone who is adopted will receive whatever a biological child would inherit. I’m not biologically adopted, however, I’m spiritually adopted and rejoice to tell anyone this because I’m a joint heir with CHRIST whatever HE has I have and because of who HE is I am as well through HIM. I’m CHRIST good pleasure and it is HIS will to take care of me. This is how the body of CHRIST must see themselves. See yourself as accepted and beloved by the FATHER through CHRIST. It’s all because of the blood of CHRIST which has redeemed us of our sins it has nothing to do with what we do in works or our trying to bargain our way into the Kingdom of GOD because none of that works on our behalf. We can even beg, plead and cry and none of this means anything. The grace of CHRIST is rich and is in great plenty it’s incapable of running low or out. Through this, we gain HIS wisdom with the method of doing or not doing something which is the mystery from those who do not belong to HIM but open to us that which is purposed within HIMself. When the time is completed we will be gathered together those who are in heaven and those who are on earth. Either begin to trust or continue to trust the Word of Truth, the gospel of our salvation who is CHRIST and because of HIM we have been sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise who guarantees our inheritance until we are redeemed of the purchased possession. Remember how the receipt or coupon is used we use the coupon to pay a reduced purchase price and we show a receipt to prove that we made a purchase. Our redemption is to the glory and praise of our FATHER. CHRIST is our peace no more do we have need to have anyone pray on our behalf or speak to the FATHER for us. No more is there a separation between those who have been adopted and are now joint heirs with CHRIST. We can enter the throne and speak to our FATHER firsthand, no more are we enemies because of the law or rituals and rules which was established by authority. CHRIST made peace but it’s only through our belief that we come back to the FATHER by what CHRIST did for us on the cross. I’m certain unless you are familiar with masonry or construction that we don’t think much about CHRIST being our cornerstone or how this even makes any sense to us. CHRIST is our Chief corner-stone, HE is the principal stone, and especially the stone which forms the corner of the foundation of an edifice. We are the edifice, the church, and the household of GOD. We are continually being built on the foundation of the Apostles, the Prophets and most importantly CHRIST JESUS HIMself. Because of CHRIST we are being fitted together and growing into a holy temple in HIM and we are the place where GOD the Spirit lives. If we want to make anything difficult stick mankind in the mix and we will without fail cause confusion every time. The mystery of the gospel is so very elementary and clear but we work overtime in making it difficult through the blindness of sin. No certain denomination of people are better than another and no certain denomination of people will enter into the Kingdom of GOD if we don’t believe in CHRIST completely. CHRIST suffered, died and resurrected for all of mankind. It is HIS desire that we all become joint heirs and will take part in the gospel of CHRIST. GOD created all things through CHRIST and the wisdom of GOD which is too numerous is to be made known by HIS children from the supreme power in heavenly places. This is the eternal purpose which is accomplished in CHRIST. We are to be bold and access with confidence with the faith that we possess in CHRIST. So, don’t lose heart about what we see which disturbs us we possess the glory of GOD. Appreciate the mystery which is hidden from anyone that chose not to believe in CHRIST bow your knee, knees or heart to our FATHER and our LORD CHRIST because HE lives within our heart through faith and we are rooted and grounded in HIS love. And because of this. we know the love of CHRIST which is above the understanding of those who do not have HIS love in their heart so it’s incomprehensible to understand we my beloved is filled and running over with the fullness of GOD. Dear siblings in CHRIST we are to make CHRIST our everyday conversation with anyone we are in conversation with. Even if those that we speak with telling us that they know that CHRIST is good, or that HE died on the cross, or that HE forgives sins and that HE is loving. It’s good that we hear those things from them but we are to find out if they just know this carnally or do they really believe this in their hearts are their spirit truly alive in HIM. We are being delivered by the prayers of others and we help in the deliverance of others through prayers for those things that we are in need of come from the Holy Spirit of CHRIST. Our diligence is to magnify CHRIST from within outward not outward to within. Our character and integrity will be a reflection of who we rely on, self, satan or CHRIST. What type of fruit is growing from us? Our joy becomes abundant in CHRIST. Some of us may remember how our growing pains felt as we were crossing over from childhood to adulthood, this was in the flesh wanting to be an adult yet the restrictions of our age kept us in the place of a child. Which is good for our own protection until we reach maturity and not what we assume is maturity. It’s the same in our spirit, we experience discomfort brought on by our wanting to do that which pleases GOD through CHRIST yet our flesh desires to do another that which may be or not a sin. Let us not be confused if the Word of GOD does not instruct us in the New Testament that what we desire to do is a sin do not allow others or that guilty conscience to stress us out that what we desire to do or eat is sinful. Not everything we do is a sin, learn to live life in the freedom of CHRIST because in CHRIST we are free from the distress of the mind and misery of ourselves and others. In the Holy Spirit learn to love everyone freely, spend more time with those who share the same interest as we have in CHRIST rather than spending more time with those whose company we enjoy yet they have a dead spirit, they have no interest in pleasing GOD but rather themselves. Even when we experience affliction know that we have more than enough mercy from CHRIST which will fulfill our joy because we have the mind of CHRIST. Live life without being selfish and conceited, respects everyone and take care of all our own interest but also when asked or when we see that we can be a help to others do so. This is what it means to be humble. Regardless of our success be helpful to anyone that we see is in need of being helped. Never allow who we are distracted us from doing what CHRIST did for HE is our blueprint. Always keep in mind that it was CHRIST who died on the cross for us and it was CHRIST who has been highly exalted and must remain so and it is CHRIST who has the name JESUS which is above every other name so that at the very name of JESUS we are to bow our knee, knees, but especially our hearts and this is done by those of us who are still on the earth and it is also done by those who are in heaven. Our tongues are the instruments by which we herald that CHRIST JESUS is the LORD of GOD’s glory who is our FATHER. And there will come a time that even those who have chosen to descend down to the very bowels of hell to the lake of fire will confess CHRIST JESUS is the LORD. Beloved beware of anyone who practices evil know that these people will mutilate our emotions more often than our flesh. A true CHRISTian will worship the living GOD from within our spirit rather than just from our mouths. Always rejoice in the spiritual knowledge that CHRIST is our confidence. Everything we decide to do must be done within CHRIST. Set out to accomplish the dreams and goals that have been given to us through CHRIST, see the vision without a doubt that we can accomplish them. Press on in CHRIST never again be chained by what we were like in our past even if our past was yesterday, this morning, afternoon or evening. We are going to goof things up. But when we do and we acknowledge that we goofed up, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and go forward reaching for those things which are before us because our goal and our prize is our call that we have answered from GOD through CHRIST. Enjoy life and attain those things that we desire which are not harmful to us but keep this in mind that what is seen and what we obtain is temporary so we should not worship anything or anyone including ourselves for GOD and CHRIST is the only One worthy of being worshipped. A higher self-image will cause us to move away from the cross as sinners are already enemies of the cross. Our possessions should not fill our bellies with satisfaction but rather our obeying the FATHER through CHRIST should be our anchor by which we will be completely satisfied. Our permanent residence beginning from the time we believed in our heart and confessed with our mouth who CHRIST is has been heaven. This is why we have that eagerness to see HIM and the FATHER. We eagerly wait to receive unbroken bodies which some of us suffer with from diseases [all types], and aches and pains [all types]. Our earthly bodies will finally be done away with and we will receive our glorious bodies according to the workings of CHRIST.

Dear siblings in CHRIST be filled with the knowledge that we must know HIS will which can only be obtained from the Holy Spirit who provides us with wisdom and spiritual understanding by teaching us but we must request this. In so our knowing the will of CHRIST will cause us to live worthy of HIM fully pleasing and being fruitful of what is good as we increase in the knowledge of GOD. We are growing stronger according to the power of CHRIST which provides us with patience in the joy which also prompts us to be thankful to our FATHER who qualified us to share in the inheritance that CHRIST has. We are forevermore delivered by all powers of darkness and has brought us into the Kingdom of HIS SON’s love because of our redemption through HIS most precious blood the forgiveness of sins. CHRIST is the very image of the invisible GOD. Want to see GOD look at CHRIST. CHRIST is the One who created everything invisible and visible because everything was created for HIM. CHRIST existed before everything, HE is the beginning and HE is the end. HE is the pre-eminence. So because the FATHER is pleased that all the fullness is living in CHRIST it is through HIM alone that we are called back to the FATHER to be in union with HIM. Peace has been paid in full on the cross through the blood of CHRIST. Look out for those who try to persuade you through philosophy about what is or is not true in regards to our faith in CHRIST. Philosophy is just to have a love for wisdom and there is nothing wrong with this, however, wisdom belongs to GOD and to obtain true wisdom is to go to the FATHER and ask for HIS wisdom through CHRIST who will provide us with the wisdom needed for the day from the Holy Spirit. Those who philosophy by education and worldly knowledge don’t understand the wisdom that we receive from the Holy Spirit and our decision to listen to Him comes across to those with a lack of understanding as weird until they see the results that come from Him. So don’t allow yourself to be conceived by tradition.

Eph. 1:3-14, 2:14-22, 3:6, 9-19; Phil. 1:12-29, 2:1-11, 3-1-3, 12-21; Col. 1:9-18, 2:8

CHRIST-Pt. 2

A-Resilient-Faith-1

Those who are Overcomers because we have the living GOD living within us through CHRIST are never ashamed to speak of HIM and share what HE has done for us. It is through our testimony that we hope we gain the ear of the lost but it’s GOD’s Word that especially bring powerful means of salvation to those we share it with. Knowing by faith that we are now justified because we are considered through CHRIST by the FATHER that we are now righteous we must live in the peace that HE has given to us with GOD through our LORD CHRIST JESUS. Rely on the peace that is within us to triumph over all the tribulations we encounter. Look, CHRIST died in our place in the place of every single human being. We are weak and powerless to help ourselves because we are without GOD in hour life and even the righteous realize that we too are week and powerless this is why we totally rely on CHRIST. Take a good look at your life, even if you do not actively do such as commit murder, steal, and adultery, fornicate, you may not hate anyone, and you may not be selfish through ambitions. But have you exhibited being a liar at any time in your life, what do you idolize-what or who means far more to you than GOD your Creator and CHRIST your Savior, do you dabble in zodiacs, palmistry, tarot, luck-superstitions, do you harbor anger or are you quick-tempered, are you known to get drunk or high (witchcraft); and are you envious of others at any time in your life? Gal. 5:19-21 teaches us that when we are not led by the Holy Spirit we are led by sin. CHRIST died for us all. So, when we begin to believe in CHRIST we will become acquitted, brought into right relationship with the FATHER, justified, and made righteous. This is what the cleansing blood of CHRIST does for us HE is the One who can save us from GOD’s contempt, disgust, and anger towards anyone who dies without CHRIST. All anyone need do is believe in CHRIST JESUS. Without CHRIST in our heart, we will remain, enemies of GOD we must come back in union through friendship to the FATHER through CHRIST death because without HIM we are alienated, estranged and far from HIM. Those of us who believe in CHRIST know that we are being saved and delivered daily from the dominion of sin all because of CHRIST resurrection. And it is because we have come back to the FATHER in friendship through CHRIST that we can rejoice. The free gift that we receive from the FATHER is nothing like the life we had when we were sinners which are fun for just a while but the price that we pay is costly. The FATHER’s gift brings us closer to HIM whereas sin’s gift takes us further away from knowing the Truth who is CHRIST. In CHRIST we have an abounding, an increase in benefits because of our believing in HIM. Because of sin, we have already been birthed into this world condemned, however, the free gift that we receive is justification and righteousness. Do you know that all it took was one man to receive the death sentence for us all? Likewise, it only took One Man who has no sin coursing through HIS arteries and veins nor the marrow within HIS bones to offer us HIS Salvation with overflowing grace and mercy. The Law of Moses that so many Christians and CHRISTians are bound by only magnifies the sin within our lives. Each time we believe we have it all together or we become overly judgmental of others the law will show us how far we are from GOD’s grace and mercy. Not only that but we will become guilty of the same things we judge others for. The grace of GOD should increase within our lives not only for ourselves but towards others as well. Grace has to reign in our lives, people must see that we are the genuine article we don’t just speak JESUS we live in CHRIST and people will notice HIM through us. Hey you, my brother and sister in CHRIST we are no longer condemned because we are in right fellowship with the FATHER through CHRIST. So why do we want to see others whether we know them or not remain in condemnation? The correct law which is the Spirit of life that is in CHRIST has set us free from the Law of Moses which is the magnification of sin and the penalty is death. The Law of Moses failed at bringing and keeping mankind righteous because it does not have the power of grace and mercy to cause our flesh to cooperate. The SON of the Living GOD, however, disguised HIMself in flesh, HE looked like us and had needs as we do, that is to eat, bath, use the toilet, and be clothed. The FATHER required that sin be condemned in flesh and no one is able to fulfill this requirement except CHRIST. HE is the only One who was able to overcome and take away the power of sin and this is why those who choose to believe will believe this sacrifice. Also, it takes time for us to learn and believe that we do not have to obey our flesh any longer. Our flesh is not what CHRIST saved what HE saved is our spirit which was dead and is now alive in HIM. We must allow our spirit to lead our emotions which will lead our flesh not the other way round. CHRIST must be alive in us and we must believe that our flesh is dead by understanding that it will cause guilt due to sin. Our spirit is now alive and we have no guilt because we are righteous. CHRIST is the end of the Law of Moses. Live as CHRIST in our character and integrity. Love without hypocrisy, hate all manner of evil/sin, stick closely only to what is good. Put CHRIST on as we did our armor never will we find that we are to remove our armor so never are we to remove CHRIST. Our salvation is always near us more so before we chose to believe, provide nothing for our flesh except that which is essential to our requirements as humans because those things that we lust after are not required to sustain our lives.

Have anyone of you ever asked yourself why there are so many denominations of the local assembly where we worship? The answer is because they all are no longer speaking the same things in the ears of the congregation. This is what brought about division and caused us to no longer be perfectly joined together with the same mind and judgment in CHRIST. CHRIST is not divided so why are we? If we were spoken to in our spirit to preach the gospel why then are we not doing so? When I write though I have a great command of the vocabulary I write simplistically in the hopes that every reader in the world will understand the message. It’s wonderful that some of us have an education but an education is only useful when we are in a setting that calls for our higher learning. Stop trying to be impressive and share the gospel in its simplest form as the Word of GOD presents itself in the Bible. To those who will hear us but are not listening the cross of CHRIST is ridiculous those are the ones who are dying and though they may not believe today hopefully in their tomorrow if they get one, they will believe. But to us who have already believed, we are being saved because we know that it is GOD’s power and wisdom. CHRIST crucifixion and resurrection is foolishness to the unbeliever but we make it worse by being the stumbling block when we make the invitation, our lifestyle [character and integrity], and our conversation obvious that CHRIST is not the head of our life rather sin is. We are all called by the Holy Spirit to come to CHRIST who is the power and wisdom of GOD. We all need mentors but dearly beloved don’t allow anyone to mentor you who does not imitate CHRIST and I don’t mean one who calls himself such or places himself as a god/deity. This is why we must know who CHRIST is and who we are in HIM. Please stop all this competitiveness in the body of CHRIST. Just as our bodies have many parts internally and externally they all operate in harmony. Why can’t we in the body of CHRIST do the same, why can’t we who have been blessed with special gifts use them together in the church? Be harmonious in CHRIST. The reality of our faith in CHRIST is that HE died for everyone’s sins and our hope is set in the fact that HE rose from the dead. HE is alive and because of HIS being alive so are we who are in CHRIST our faith in HIM is not just talk old wives tales or lies. We who are in CHRIST no longer are held captive and led by sin. If we believe that this is the life that which we are living or so-called living in the now then we are all pitiful.

We must observe the Holy Spirit not the letter of the law. Our trust is in CHRIST towards GOD. Our minds are kept blinded because it has grown callous and hard we no longer have the ability to understand and the proof is evident when we read the laws within the Old Testament which is the old covenant, the old contract the veil is still present on our hearts we refuse to lift that dusty old veil to reveal that in CHRIST it is made null and void. CHRIST is the light of the gospel and we have received HIS mercy so don’t lose heart my dear ones. The light of the gospel of CHRIST glory who is the very image of GOD must shine on us. The gospel is about CHRIST not us as the focal point we are HIS bondservants with a burning desire to share HIM with everyone. GOD our Creator commanded light to shine out of the complete darkness and that light broke through the darkness of our hearts by invite that is. And in that light is the knowledge of GOD’s glory in the face of CHRIST. CHRIST is the blueprint by which we are to follow. Is your love for CHRIST sincere? Then people should see your diligent faith not so much by what you say but by what you do without knowing that you are being watched by others. Sincere love must be first nature in those who have CHRIST within.

There is only one true gospel and that is the gospel of CHRIST. You know why so many people turn away from christianity because CHRIST is not or no longer the focal point. Traditions, the Laws of Moses and whatever perversion that has become first place to either water down the gospel or removed it. We cannot serve CHRIST and man so who are we going to please mankind or CHRIST? CHRIST can only be revealed to us through the Holy Spirit and we are to attend Bible studies and worship service to glorify CHRIST and to have our faith stretched as we mature in HIM. No one should be saved for twenty years and still be on the milk of the Word of GOD. We all must be secure in the knowledge of knowing that when we believe in CHRIST and we have allowed CHRIST to reside in our heart that we are justified by GOD through CHRIST. Don’t allow anyone to cause you to doubt who you are all because of their unbelief in CHRIST. Those who are in CHRIST have been redeemed from the curse of the Law of Moses because CHRIST took our place and became cursed for us. We are now the seed of Abraham the father of faith which is the Seed of CHRIST who was known to be righteous not because of the law. Abraham lived four hundred and thirty years prior to Moses and the law. Abraham is known to be righteous because he believed whatever the LORD GOD shared with him. The promise by faith in CHRIST will be given to those who believe in HIM. The law is our tutor to bring us to CHRIST so that we can be justified by faith. We are all by faith in CHRIST sons of GOD when we were baptized in CHRIST we put on CHRIST. We are all one in CHRIST there is no special person so stop tripping. We are all special to HIM. We all have the promise and we all are heirs in CHRIST as it was promised to Abraham. We are liberated, free from sin and we must remain secure in this knowledge. CHRIST has made us free so please don’t return to what we are familiar with in sin.
