Today, focus is on “GOD within” as a condition for relationship with divinity, more than merely for existing in a material, physical and social world.  The original endowment of breath (life essence, spirit, word) from divinity into a lifeless form resulted in “a living soul.”  Every thing that exists belongs to GOD, however, all do not have life; and all do not communicate, have exchange, or interact in ongoing relationship with GOD.  Angels, cats, dogs, lions, and water buffalo are created by GOD, yet have no place as children of GOD.  For Adam (mankind) to exist as adopted children, covenant partners, heirs, and offspring to GOD, the living must receive a fresh endowment of Spirit from the makeup of divinity.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

They say god is within us, is that true and is it also within the children from Africa dying of starvation?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  (John 1:  10-13, King James Version, KJV)

“mark”, “GOD within” equips mankind to endure different difficulties, rather than eliminate them.  While the general conditions and operations for human life go forward in “automatic” cycles, involuntary phases, and mechanical stages, intimate and personal relationships with divinity only go forward where inseparable aspects from the makeup of GOD appear as an abiding presence within the living.  Included must be faith, forgiveness, holiness, humility, meekness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  To exist as a life companion to divinity mankind must become endowed with the same immortality, incorruption, and purity that exists in the Creator.

For mankind apart from divinity, death, dying, mortality, sin, and human suffering are now fixed and inescapable as the natural and normal outcomes of such elements as choice, commitment, distrust, fear, malice, sentiment, and separation from GOD.  The operations of sin oppose the continued existence of divine law, the Law Giver, and divine order for the Creation through sacred law.  Sin may dominate awareness and self-will in the living, and (despite negative consequences of damage, loss and pain) can not appear contrary, foreign, and out of place without the provisions of GOD that include the imparted, indwelling Spirit.

The tasks necessary for maintaining activity and life upon the earth have been assigned to mankind; and further establishes human accountability, dominion, duty, purpose, responsibility, and worth.  Using such finite human tools as emotions, intellect, humor, logic, philosophy, and science, the living will never be free from sin.  Through Jesus Christ, many become “born again” in water baptism (i.e., released from sin by death of the inborn spirit, reborn from divine DNA, so to speak).  These also must “grow up again,” and meet life challenges upon the earth that include bereavement and hardships. 

There is far more to be said, carefully examined, and spiritually understood.  (For example, all believers are not yet mature.  Consider this:  Adding a single drop of orange juice to a glass of pure milk allows you to say, “I have a glass of milk with orange juice in it.”  However, you must gradually continue pouring in orange juice to reach a point where you change the character of the contents of the glass (e.g., its color, its fragrance, its taste).  Similarly, the divine character within is developed in the living through ongoing change and gradual development.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
