The imparted, indwelling Spirit, and whether one may be out of communication with GOD are the topic, today.  The “Yahoo! Answers” fighter using “?” as their ID (Level 1 with 55 points, a member since May 31, 2014) posted the following:

 

Because God lives inside us all, is it ever possible to lose track of God?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?  Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.  When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.  Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.  Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son.  These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself:  but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.  Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.  Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me:  and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.  (Psalms 50:  16-23, King James Version, KJV)

“?”, here are a few points to consider that should come with mature Christian belief.  Those “born again” must “grow up” again, and become mature by meeting life challenges and “growing pains”:

(1.)  In the same way people do not all have the same abilities, interests, talents, and skills, created beings and living creatures do not all contain the same measure of divine substance whereby they are in the relationship as sons and daughters to GOD.  Many are creatures made by GOD (like cats, dogs, horses), yet, not children of GOD.

(2.)  Where a glass contains only cold milk, one could say, It is “pure” milk.  However, by adding a single drop of orange juice, one could say, The glass contains both juice and milk.  Because there is so little, presence of the juice could remain undetected.  The amount of juice is not enough to alter the appearance and other characteristics for the content of the glass (e.g., color, fragrance, taste, temperature, texture).  Similarly, it is possible for either the presence of divinity or sin to appear in ones life expression having sufficient proportion to determine the character for the content of ones awareness and self-will.

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (3.)  Divinity has revealed and supplied to the living multiple devices and operations that establish and maintain ones consciousness of GOD.  Included are baptism (death of ones inborn spirit, rebirth having divine DNA, so to speak), covenant relationship, divine law, forgiveness, love, continuing practice of sacraments, praise, prayer, promise, repentance, and sanctification.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to the measure and operations of the faith and love from GOD within you.
