      The divinity of Joseph, and his place as a caretaker and father to Jesus are topics, today. Also, there is more on when GOD controls. The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “War and Peace” (Level 3 with 1,814 points, a member since September 2, 2012) posted the following:


Religious people: Why Jesus? Why not Joseph, Jesus’s father?

Does that makes Joseph God??


THE BATTLE AXE: When GOD Controls? (04/22/2013)—(5.) Accountability and divine judgment are not matters of arbitrarily placing blame, or exercising ones personal preferences. It is senseless to ask “who are you to question” as though challenging an ordinary person like oneself. It is the law, ones conscience, the account of ones own deeds, truth, and wisdom that accuses, challenges, indicts, or pronounces guilt. Because all are challenged to answer the same divine standards, and the divine judge is grounded in truth and impartial, judgment is trusted to be absolutely righteous, and does not permit bias and prejudice. (6.) GOD may not be blamed for the actions, errors, and sins of created beings and living creatures. The mechanisms of awareness and self-will make it that every being is accountable for their own behavior and conduct. More than this, all living must answer for their own peculiar application and use of their divine endowment. Included are discernment, divine gifts, doctrine, opportunities, skills, spirit content, talents, and tools. Faith in GOD, or believing the Gospel, does not justify selfishness, self-righteousness or sin. Through Christ one is justified only in such features as their giving, their meekness, their obedience, their repentance, their reverence, their submission, and their testimony.


THE GOLDEN ARROW: Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. (Hebrews 9: 6-15, King James Version)

     Dear War and Peace, here are some points shared among mature Christian believers that may help you further build up your understanding:

(1.) The divine use of a human life to perfectly execute and perform the will of GOD upon the earth must be carefully fitted to a broad range of divine events, sacred operations and eternal goals. Included are covenant, Creation, revelation, judgment, death, rebirth, resurrection, salvation, and sanctification. The sacred needs of all created beings and living creatures are to be addressed.

(2.) GOD is a spirit and must be known upon the earth through breath, spirit content (e.g., faith, grace, holiness), truth, and utterance that registers as consciousness (we say, the word). Only GOD is GOD, yet, GOD may appear and function as different Persons.

(3.) The word of GOD has been received, documented and shared in the earth as law, praise, prayer, promise, proclamation and prophecy. Often, actions and events performed by GOD are described before they occur through the word, and are clarified and explained after their occurrence by the word.

(4.) In accordance with the word of GOD spoken and maintained in the earth, Joseph and many others among the Jews as a covenant people to GOD were used to prepare mankind for the appearance of the Almighty upon the earth in the form of a human being, Jesus Christ.

      There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (5.) Dynasty (i.e., royal secession), family lineage, inheritance and priesthood have been used as divine devices to fulfill and maintain the word of GOD to mankind. Flesh and spirit are both sacred tools in divine revelation.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

      A believer’s place within Divine Person, “I AM” as the name of GOD, and getting free of spiritual confusion are topics, today. Also, there is more on kindness to Mary. The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “Republican catholic” (Level 1 with 0 points, a member since March 14, 2012) posted the following:

I am god so can you!?

If i let god into my heart does that mean i am god? In theory i could let god in me and control myself. If i do anything under the influence i can just blame it on him right? Who ARE YOU TO QUESTION GOD?

Additional Details

i like to bend spoons when god controls me sometimes i do others thing some ppl hate but its gods choice they should respect that and thank me for giving them a chance to be close to god

THE BATTLE AXE: A Kindness to Mary? (04/21/2013)—(5.) In the same way respect to Jesus does not diminish or reduce the glory and honor to Almighty GOD and the Holy Spirit, and continues a believer’s acknowledgment of the authority and sovereign majesty of the Father, respect to Mary as the mother of Jesus does not conflict with or undermine ones faith in Christ, and takes nothing away from the glory of the GODhead. Typically, believers do not have complete and correct knowledge of sacred truth embracing Mary until they have made careful and detailed study. There are many subtle connections that must harmonize among the doctrines, the Gospel, and other teachings that are put forth; however, they all stand upon a single foundation, Jesus as the One Sent. (6.) In the public forum, many share their faith, or gospel (good news) thinking that every opinion is acceptable. They are surprised to find that even faith and “good news” must pass muster, and are evaluated and ranked according to fixed judgments that have been developed over many years, and tested within many cultures. Saying this another way: No childish insults, underdeveloped thinking, spiritual confusion, or vain rant may pass as benefit to others, comfort, encouragement, help, humility, kindness, mature insight, love, prophecy, religious belief, righteousness, understanding, or godly wisdom. (7.) From before the birth of Jesus there have been those who accuse Mary of prostitution, and question the virgin birth in order to justify their belief that GOD has not been righteous in covenant, has not fulfilled prophecy, and has not appeared in flesh. There were those who attacked Jesus to his face with those very slanders, and so we count it as “ancient evil.” Like many today, they sought to participate in a conversation regarding divinity that would be grounded only in carnal, material and social truth without also considering what GOD would speak about himself, his sacred operations, and his own divine purposes. Neither the things that offend GOD, nor the things that please him can be known and recognized by those who lack the holy spirit of life from GOD that should reside in every created being and living creature. One of the most distinctive features of mature faith is a reluctance to attack others, and a continuing restraint in dealing with errors and thrusts from those who are still developing. Mistakenly regarded as acceptance and approval of sin, it is an appearance of the peace that passes understanding. See 1st Timothy 6: 3-8, King James Version. (8.) Mature Christian believers obey a discipline that goes a long way toward eliminating gossip, slander and unkindness: Say nothing about anyone, even to GOD, that you can not say to their face. Where what you say will not benefit those you speak about, let it remain unsaid; and, do not talk about others, talk to them.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. (John 17: 17-23, King James Version)

     Here are some points to consider that many have found helpful when getting free of spiritual confusion, and the destructive habit of bending spoons:

(1.) The phrase “I AM” appears in the holy writings to suggest the enormous breadth, depth and impact of divine existence upon created beings and living creatures. As a holy name whereby GOD is known and spoken of in the earth, casual use of “I am” is avoided. This is particularly so where a believer embraces covenant relationship with GOD, and the divine commandments to prohibit taking or using the name of GOD in vain displays.

(2.) The profound truth that GOD inhabits Creation cannot be correctly applied and understood apart from the ongoing operations of Divine Person deposited within the living as their anointing, or endowment. GOD is a spirit, and must be acknowledged through spirit substance and truth. Included are faith, holiness, humility, hope, joy, longsuffering, love, wisdom and wrath against sin.

(3.) Clear standards for recognition of divine presence, sacred purpose, and eternal judgment have all been “published” and made accessible in the earth along with an incarnate example of glory, obedience and reverence, Jesus Christ. Divine law, proclamations, promises, and prophesies have been given such that there should be “no question” when identifying what is, and what is not, holy intent. See 1st John 5: 17, 2nd John 1: 9-11 and 1st John 4: 6-8, KJV.

      There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) When the word of GOD continues to have a controlling influence within a person’s awareness, Christ is said to abide within. The believer in Christ has place within the fullness of GOD, who is spirit; and GOD, who is spirit, has more than merely a place as co-existing. By eternal union of Creator, created, and universe, the living become expressions of Divine Person and instruments of divine will, rather than their own self-will and the self-will of others.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
