Today, reply is on delaying and postponing a saving relationship with Jesus Christ while pursuing the aims and goals of business. Many will seek to justify wrong-doing as correct and necessary when doing business. Thus, Christian believers are admonished and warned about becoming enslaved to fashion, riches, material things, and the operations of the world (e.g., carnal reason, competition, self-promotion, vanity). Through doctrine, prophecy, and teachings that have been examined and tested using thousands of events, within thousands of lives, over the course of thousand of years, divinity has exposed the danger of immersing oneself in business, commerce, politics and trade, or accumulating and administering wealth. Taken to the extreme, the busyness of business always is an enemy of ones Spirit from GOD. Because commitment to Christ is spoken of as joining oneself to GOD, as love and as marriage, becoming overly impressed by the world is described as adultery, fornication, transgression of divine law, and whore-mongering. The Book of Revelation urges mankind to come out of Babylon the Great, and to turn away from the Great Whore. Also it is written: Romans 8: 5-9, King James Version (KJV): Romans 8: 5-9, King James Version (KJV): 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. One of the fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” who uses the ID “Anonymous” (no profile data appears) posted the following:

 

Should Jesus be put on the back burner when you have to violate his teachings in the name of business?

Business is business (except abortion clinics, apparently). “Forget Jesus. He already died for my sins, so I’m done with him anyways. It’s Paul’s teachings that I’ve got to follow now. One in particular: ‘Make as much money as humanly possible or die.’”

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. (Luke 12: 13-15, KJV)

Anonymous”, among Christians, exaggerated desire and lust for money (we also say, Mammon) is false worship that acknowledges a man-made thing in place of the living GOD. Christian believers are to continually display balance, consciousness of divinity, sacred knowledge, and self-will (willpower) that are imparted from the substance of GOD. Through divine seed (many say, sacred DNA), men and women on the earth are to become recognizable as the sons and daughters of GOD, joint-heirs with Jesus Christ, and the new creation. Included in the fresh endowment of life essence (breath; spirit; word) believers receive from GOD are inseparable aspects of divine fullness such as faith, forbearance, holiness, oneness without sameness, personhood, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Those who become “born again” are granted an ongoing relationship with divinity as “developing believers” who must “grow up again” while on the earth through accepting accountability, commitment, discovery, enduring growing pains, gradual growth, fellowship within a community of faith, sacred practices, unselfish service, and suffering. All are to become mature/ripe for harvest by the Savior at his Advent (we also say, his appearing, the Rapture, the Second Coming). Becoming a child of GOD is a matter of love being emanated and poured forth from divinity, rather than transactions trafficking in flesh. Believers often speak in terms of adoption, canceling debts, free gifts and grace, as well as being a divine purchase. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of John Michael Talbot:

1.) 1st Timothy 6: 7-11, King James Version (KJV): 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. 9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

2.) 1st Peter 5: 2-4, KJV: 2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3 Neither as being lords over Gods heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

3.) Acts 20: 28, KJV: 28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aHneNl38fM.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Family, Noah, and the doctrines of a second Adam are in view, today, along with more on how to love GOD. A “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “Mens” (Level 1 with 91 points, a member since March 18, 2013) posted the following:

A question about Noah’s Ark?

If every human besides Noah and his family were killed does that mean that 1. We are all decendents of Noah and 2. that members of Noah’s family had children together?

THE BATTLE AXE: How To Love GOD? (03/24/2013)—To love GOD is a continuous act of being that consists in (1) voluntary displays and submission to GOD of ones full sacred content, and all they may value as germane to their person; and (2) responding to the will of GOD appearing by such elements as admonition, calling, duty, election, invitation, law, longsuffering, proclamation, promise, prophecy, truth, wisdom and wrath against sin. Displaying ones hidden aspect may be known as “confession,” and involves acknowledgment, confidence, respect, and trust. Thus, many understand confession and prayer as the beginning point for love of GOD. As with any relationship wherein we invest our private person, there must be a “getting to know” GOD, before whole hearted commitment and full understanding of all that has been revealed, and what one may correctly expect or seek. Many childish, false and selfish ideas must be realized, and completely put away. There must be a coming into maturity, such that we say, You must be born again, and grow up again. Believers undergo a transformation to full spiritual awareness when they cooperate with the holy writings, and the promptings by the imparted, indwelling spirit from GOD. What one values and what one contains are equally vital to having place within the eternal sphere of sacred presence.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. (Hebrews 11: 3-7, King James Version)

Mens, here are a few thoughts from the faith of a mature Christian believer that may be helpful:

1.) The figure of Noah powerfully introduces the idea of a second Adam, and the re-establishment of the earth following the operations of divine judgment through continuation of covenant and priesthood.

2.) Family as we know it, a social reality, did not exist for Adam, the single being created by Almighty GOD. As a result, such sins as adultery, incest, and same sex relations were initially unknown. Adam is the name given by GOD to both the male and female. Eve was the name given the female by the male; and this identified her as the mother (i.e., caretaker) of all living.

3.) The priesthood bestowed upon Adam was to exist as an inheritance for mankind from GOD, and was patterned after the priesthood of Jesus Christ in the heavens. The framework of family, then, began to follow along two separate paths, the sacred and the profane.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, the initial command to mankind, repeated to Noah and his family, was they should be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. This was not intended simply to multiply mortals upon the earth. Consciousness of divine law, sacred presence, and eternal purpose were to be preserved and made permanent among all living. Noah is to be seen as a type or figure foreshadowing Jesus, the Second Adam and Christ.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
