      Divine purpose, incarnation, and the operation of GOD through Creation and flesh come into view. Also, there is more on marriage and spiritual companionship. A “Yahoo! Answers” writer using the ID “Andy” (Level 1 with 41 points, a member since November 2, 2012) posted the following:

Why did jesus have to be born?

Why did Jesus have to be born through Mary instead of just been putting on earth as a grown man. I dont see why God could not have done this as he is capable of anything. He did make trees, rivers, oceans etc appear

THE BATTLE AXE: A Life Companion? (11/07/2012)—The spiritual function of a wife includes roles as healer, mediator, and priestess of her home where she offers her own verbal and silent prayers, and encourages the prayers of her mate. As her husband’s confidant and companion in sacred study, the wife is a “first-responder” and “sounding board” for his comments, questions, and understandings. She shares with him her own heartfelt beliefs, convictions, and experience through the operation of GOD, thereby serving as an immediately available human source of divine spirit content. While gender, sexual intimacy and reproduction were not experienced among those in heaven, and was given by GOD as a necessary process for created beings and living creatures in the earth, family is the creation of mankind in the earth (we say “the world”), and centers in human social interaction and exchange. The angels know emotions and feelings, however they are not organized as families; and their service and worship goes forward through united hierarchies, orders and ranks. By marriage and family, now accounted as human instruments for survival in various material conditions, mankind also amplifies and discharges sacred covenant, spiritual growth, praise, thanksgiving and worship.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5: 15-21, King James Version)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Love in Christ (10/23/2012); Jesus, King of Earth? (10/07/2012); How Was GOD Known Before Jesus? (10/06/2012); Blessings, Curses and Woes (10/03/2012); Divine Self-Sacrifice? (09/30/2012); Justice Comes by Love (10/01/2012); A Man in Heaven? (09/23/2012); Aliens? (09/24/2012)

      In general, it is a mistake to object to things being as they are by asking “why are they so”; or to refuse to accept and acknowledge that things from GOD are as we have them in order to accomplish divine purpose. There are no simple answers when asking about divine intent and sacred purpose. Included are creation, judgment, redemption, repentance, salvation, sanctification, and eternal life. Divine processes must come into view that include death, incarnation, perfection, re-birth, resurrection, revelation, and unification.

      Human awareness and the capacity to be in relationship with the Creator was transformed when Adam’s will was influenced to deny the will of GOD, that is, the law spoken by GOD. More than simply a change in consciousness occurred. Self-will in Adam (both the male and female) was changed; their endowment of divine spirit content was altered; and their nature was shifted from being in line with those who dwell in heaven to be more in line with that of animals and creatures of the earth. The relationship founded in acceptance, respect and trust was shifted to a platform of apprehension, false knowledge, fear and human error.

      The finite, living instruments of angels, men and other created beings are not adequate as independent expressions of eternal will who can accomplish all the many tasks involved in the now necessary transformation of heaven and earth through judgment and salvation. So to speak, where GOD wants the work done, and done correctly, GOD must do it himself. GOD must directly operate and participate in showing divinity to created beings and living creatures in ways that respond to their many limitations. The divine word spoken as proclamation, promise, and prophecy must be performed. Divine intent must be openly displayed; and sacred law must be continually affirmed and endorsed.

      There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, as carnal beings that operate within the frameworks of time and space, humans are independently unable to formulate and permanently maintain the same ideas and concepts that appear in divine law. Such elements as curiosity, fantasy, fear, forgetting, and imagination twist and warp otherwise sacred truths and godly wisdom.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
