Son of The Widow

The image depicts Jesus acknowledging the existence of a dead body, and providing life to the dead son of a widow as he was entering the city of Nain.

 

Today, reply is on the difference between “existence” and “life”. Where our focus is sacred knowledge, a full discussion of existence and life will include such topics as death, dying, mortality, and eternal life as well as the origin of mankind with the multiple objects located within time and space. It is written: John 1: 1-4, King James Version (KJV): 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Radette”, for many mature Christian believers, life may be described as a process and operations that are mechanical, natural, and spiritual. The differences between existence and life are seen proclaimed through the account of mankind’s creation. The form and material vessel that would serve as a physical body for Adam were conceived and fashioned within the heart and mind of divinity (i.e., first existed within GOD), and made to appear within frameworks, spheres of life, and multiple structures provided for flesh (e.g., consciousness, purpose, time & space, the earth). Adam was not yet alive, however, neither was he dead. He was first a “shell” to contain life essence (we say, breath; spirit; word) that would be imparted from the makeup and substance of divine fullness (we say, divinity; the Creator; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). Once the figure formed from the dust of the earth received the breath of life, Adam became a “living soul.” At that time, there were no “dead souls”, nor was there dying or mortality. Now, we know lifeless bodies may exist (we say, cadavers; corpses; the dead). Death was introduced as “sleep” in the creation of a mate for Adam that entailed removing one of his ribs. Also, death and mortality were established as limiting conditions for human existence through proclamation (we say, sanctions) within divine law (the expressed will of GOD). There are created beings and living creatures who are neither mortal as mankind, nor immortal. Only divinity is immortal and incorruptible—the duration and lifetime for angels, mankind, sacred beasts, or the elders appearing in heaven continue by operations of divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. All things that exist do not contain life displayed as the ability/capacity for appetite (e.g., hunger, thirst, cravings for sexual contact), for communication, for self-directed motion, for sensation (i.e., hearing, seeing, tasting, touching), or for operations of emotion/mind (e.g. anger, depression, fear, imagination, recall, sorrow). When speaking of the quality of human experience, some contrast “living” (where a person vigorously pursues their own interests with attitudes and behavior that are creative, exciting, and satisfying) against merely “existing” (where one endures boredom, interpersonal conflicts, and life struggles using conduct and routines that are cyclic, frustrating and repetitive). Others speak of life as having spirit content from GOD (we say, anointing; fellowship with divinity; an unction), and to exist is to be filled with spiritual confusion, doubt and uncertainty (i.e., to display the operations of death, sin and wickedness; to continually express bitterness and complaining; to live relying on patterns that are unfruitful and vain (i.e., lacking sacred substance). Without ongoing relationship with divinity, ones life is void (empty); however, with divinity in the life there will be abundance and plenty, yet, there also will be judgment. All Christians are to acknowledge that the operations of sin may dominate consciousness and self-will within the living; and sinners must become built-up and strengthened with the will of GOD. Where one becomes “born again” by receiving a fresh endowment of spirit content from GOD, they must “grow-up again,” and become mature/ripe for harvest by Jesus at his appearing (Advent; the Rapture; the Second Coming). Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and the presentation from the music ministry of Pastor Marvin Winans:

(1.) Ephesians 2: 1-6, King James Version (KJV): 1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

(2.) Jeremiah 4: 22-28, KJV: 22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. 23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. 24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. 25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. 26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. 27 For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end. 28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black; because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

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

Today, reply is on whether the knowledge of divinity and consciousness of the divine presence exists throughout the universe. Men upon the earth have received anointing and divine commission to proclaim promises, prophecy, and the eternal purposes of divinity as spokespersons of GOD sent to “all the world.” While many believe omnipresence (existing as active, or on hand in every location and place) and omniscience (existing as all-knowing) to be attributes of divinity, neither are among the inseparable aspects of divine fullness imparted to mankind through water baptism and rebirth whereby sinners become the offspring of GOD, joint heirs with Jesus Christ, and the new creation. Developing and mature Christian believers are to display their own fresh endowment of sacred seed from the makeup of GOD. Included as their “divine DNA” are balance, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  It is written: Mark 16: 14-16, King James Version (KJV): 14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. The fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion and Spirituality using the ID “Bearly” (Level 3 with 1,286 points, a member since June 23, 2018) posted the following:

 

Do Christians believe God’s presence is made known everywhere in the universe (Is 66:1-2, Lk 1:32-33, Jer 23:23-24, Job 38:19-20)?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. (Psalms 19: 1-6, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Spiritual Confusion About Heaven (05/31/2019); The Option of Atheism (02/11/2018); Wisdom In A Mystery (11/22/2017); Making Sense of Preexistence? (10/06/2017); Time and Sacred Events? (03/30/2017); Abstractions, Atheism and I.Q. (08/18/2016); The Three Wise Men? (08/05/2015)

 

Bearly”, the idea of a “universe” promoted as a concept from Astronomy—the academic and secular study of planets, their moons, stars, the possibilities for the existence of extra-terrestrial life forms, and the various phenomena within outer space—should not be thought of as the “universe of GOD”, meaning the man-made World system for exchange and survival, all the earth, or the totality of Creation. Two very different systems of belief and organization of mind are involved, therefore, mixing and interchanging content from the two discrete frameworks for knowledge can result in spiritual confusion. The universe can not be both an abstraction and an organic sphere of life. Among Christian believers, time and space are not extrapolations and mathematical projections that derive from the measurable dimensions of material substance, physical objects, and the unseen fields that surround them (e.g., gravity, magnetism, radioactivity, sonic waves). Divinity as the focus for Christian believers centers on such interests as the origin of authority, existence, divine order, and sacred law; life essence (breath; spirit; word) within mankind from the makeup of the Creator (we also say, the Godhead; the fullness and sum of all spirit substance; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit); the apocalypse entailing a completion of mortality and sacred judgment; and the continuation of ongoing communication and interactions with divinity that suppress the operations of sin. GOD is held to be a diffuse spirit who displays and expresses direction, immortality, immutability, oneness without sameness, personhood, eternal purpose, and sovereign will. GOD is immortal, invisible, and without measurable form, yet, divinity may put forth material objects with patterns and sequences that serve as mechanical and natural law. The holy writings are intended to document and provide witness in tribunal (judgment) pertaining to divinity who has appeared on the earth using thousands of events, occurring within thousands of lives, over the course of thousands of years. GOD appears within the consciousness and self-will of created beings and living creatures; and many are convinced that material objects influence one another and respond to GOD through operations that can not be spoken of as life, mind, or discursive thought (e.g., attracting/repelling; hardening/softening; obeying/disobeying). The word “universe” does not appear in the King James translation of the Scriptures; however, consider again the following that uses language from that presentation of the Bible:

(1.) Isaiah 55: 6-13, King James Version (KJV): 6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

(2.) Hebrews 11: 1-3, KJV: 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3 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.

(3.) Romans 8: 22-31, KJV: 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) Matthew 24: 6-14, KJV: 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on violating the commandments from GOD that require there be love. Animals to populate the earth were called forth in pairs; and the human male was provided with a mate fashioned from his own body. Even so, the substance and process of divine love is seen to be spirit in its character, form, and makeup. Lasting relationships appear built on commitment, gratitude, respect, and reverence. Arrogance, deceit, defiance, distrust, fear, rebellion, and stubbornness that break off relationships derive from the flesh, and are not demonstrations and expressions of the righteousness that is love. It is written: 1st John 4: 6-12, King James Version (KJV): 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. 7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. One of the fighters in the “Yahoo!

Achilles”, mankind was created to serve as a life companion to immortal, incorruptible divinity. A divine rule that existence, life, and relationship are continued through the presence and operations of love can be discerned as appearing “from the beginning” through the accounts of Creation. Life essence (breath, spirit, word) was imparted from the makeup of GOD to both the male and female pair; and the two were to dwell together on the earth as vessels of inseparable spirit substance. Included were faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Those who seek a healthy relationship where both themselves and divinity can display and express love must understand that more than affection, desire, feelings, romance, or sexual behavior are involved. Accountability, duty, and sacred practices must appear along with acknowledgments of divine law, forgiveness, humility, regular attention to life principals, unselfish service, and willingness to endure chastisement and suffering. Rather than a reward for perfect obedience, divine love is a response to contrition, repentance, and sorrowing for sin with a willingness to be transformed and exist as the new creation of Jesus Christ. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a presentation from the music ministry of Ce Ce Winans:

(1.) Luke 7: 36-43, King James Version (KJV): 36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to meat. 37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, 38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. 39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner. 40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. 41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? 43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

(2.) John 21: 12-17, KJV: 12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. 13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. 14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead. 15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. 16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. 17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

(3.) 2nd John 1: 5-11, KJV: 5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example 4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR6HSSm5YUM) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

 

AN AFTERTHOUGHT: In the same way, the Ten Commandments were provided to establish a people and nation under GOD, the commandments provided by Jesus Christ are to establish a church and a kingdom of GOD under a divine High Priest and King. It is written: Matthew 22: 35-40, King James Version (KJV): 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Within the church of Jesus Christ, the dominion of love is to be manifest: Romans 13: 7-10, KJV: 7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. 8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Today, reply is on the existence of divinity as spirit displaying personhood, rather than as an abstraction or an operation appearing through sequence and mechanical process. Were it that the substance of Jesus Christ in his resurrection is not the same as the substance of the Father, mankind could not be joined to He that rules the heaven by He who has appeared on the earth. The oneness of GOD is a matter of accord and agreement in content, eternal duration, purpose, and substance. Multiple expressions of divine nature, person, and discrete existence are known to have been manifest. Properly read, the holy writings do not dispute whether divinity has appeared on the earth using flesh and human form as Jesus Christ, or whether the spirit presence of GOD is continuing his ministry that was begun in the earth. Even so, the Scriptures do identify one GOD as the source of multiple operations on behalf of mankind. In addition to redemption and salvation there are edification, justification, rebirth, sanctification, glorification, and more. It is written: Romans 8: 29-30, King James Version (KJV): 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

norine”, increasingly, mature Christian believers acknowledge that the makeup, process and substance of divine fullness (we also say, active presence; divinity; the Godhead; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) is entirely of spirit. The inseparable aspects of GOD include faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. We describe spirit as being (1) indestructible, (2) invisible, (3) without finite form that has measurable bounds and limits, yet (4) alive (having and displaying such features as breath, consciousness, existence, integrity of being, and will). Our human tools of intellect, logic, philosophy and science encourage us to think and speak as though GOD exists as an abstraction, as an animal found in the natural world, or as a mathematical or mechanical sequence embedded within the synchronized movements of astronomical bodies. Carnal reasoning denies that the Creator of heaven and earth maintains all that is through divine order and sacred law. Created beings and living creatures may communicate, exchange, and interact with divinity because they contain deposits and fresh endowments of sacred spirit imparted from the Godhead at Creation, and through the ongoing ministries of Jesus Christ. The appearance of multiple administrations, gifts, operations, sacred events, and stages of transformation are generated from the eternal purpose of divinity that is immutable and unchanging, yet, employs diversity. There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Animals have an innate consciousness of GOD as part of their makeup and substance. Human beings have no reason to doubt that animals also can apprehend and respond to the operations of divine fullness (we say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Animals are an appearance and manifestation of the sovereign will of GOD as Creator. Mankind was fashioned and formed by the divine hand, and completed using life essence from the Creator (we say, breath, spirit, word). The beasts and living creatures appeared as acts of GOD when spoken and uttered into existence. While animals continue in covenant relationship with divinity from the times following their deliverance on the ark of Noah, their survival does not depend on their finite intellectual skills and traits. Mature Christians readily accept that the animals gathered to the ark did so in response to promptings by the Holy Spirit, not the preaching of Noah; the ravens who fed the prophet Elijah at the brook-side, were commanded and guided by GOD; and the lions who demonstrated divine restraint while the prophet Daniel was present within their lair acknowledged the divine Creator and Maker. Our pets (and we ourselves) operate as having animal intelligence that includes consciousness, emotions, empathy, instinct, and intuition; and many display an ability to communicate among themselves. Even so, languages and literacy as seen among mankind has not been observed and reported among the many beasts living on the earth. It is written: Romans 8: 22-23, King James Version (KJV): 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Why is Bible only for humans, why can’t animals read Bible, does that mean other beings are less important in God eyes?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister; (Colossians 1: 19-23, King James Version, KJV)

Night city light”, angels and animals are not “living souls” within the Creation, and their needs for divine process and sacred knowledge are not the same as that among humankind. Only mankind is challenged to communicate, exchange, and interact with divinity by having the same awareness and sacred knowledge granted to Adam, and given to them in the form of life essence (breath; spirit; word) from the makeup of GOD. Because animals were put forth having aspects of the same inseparable spirit content, they also respond to the Maker as authority, power, active presence, and sovereign will, however, they do not relate as offspring, or sons and daughters of GOD. The primary focus of divine judgment is the presence and expression of spirit content from GOD. Human consciousness and self-will (willpower) are to display spirit content and influence that go beyond emotion and feelings. The endowment of sacred spirit imparted to the living includes faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovinkindness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

While some people will show favor and disfavor to others because they are able to read and recite the things that are written in the Bible, our Father in heaven does not demand that all created beings and living creatures be able to quote from the divine law, memorize the advice and counsels recorded as Scripture, or read and write the full collection of documents, epistles, messages, and prophecies preserved as the Bible. Whether a person will be accepted by divinity, accounted worthy to be granted eternal life, and whether they will be approved as having meaning, quality and value as life companions to GOD depends on things that describe divinity more than on things that describe mankind.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, divine judgment and salvation go forward on the basis of the forgiveness, grace, impartiality, eternal purpose, and righteousness of GOD, rather than the flaws, infirmities, and sins of the living. The character, possibilities and potential of men and angels continue to be shown through behavior that is animal, human, or divine; and is often put forth as a mixture of the three. Finite human awareness and self-will can be determined by operations of sin—even though divinity has never created or put forth sin.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

A depiction of divine fullness that includes the Holy Spirit with Jesus Christ as the Lion of Judah and the Lamb of GOD who takes away the sin of the world.

 

Today, the reply is on forgiveness as a release from sin that men on the earth receive through love and obedience appearing within the Son of GOD.  Forgiveness and mercy are intended for those who come to divine judgment, and are actually guilty.  Finite human tools such as intellect, science, and willpower do not provide mankind with sufficient integrity of being to appear sinless before divinity, or to display justification and worthiness for their own having eliminated sin. Salvation is the necessary divine operation wherein GOD extends forbearance, forgiveness, new life and reconciliation to mankind on the basis of the merit, sacrifice, virtue and works accomplished by Jesus Christ. It is written: 1st John 1: 5-10, KJV: 5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

I want to give all my guilt and regret and mistakes to God but I feel like I’m not worthy of forgiveness.?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities. (Psalm 130: 3-8, King James Version, KJV)

(07/04/2019); The Character of GOD (06/27/2019); Salvation Through Jesus Christ (03/25/2019); Forgiveness, Grace and Merit (06/22/2017)

 

Jeff”, divine forgiveness displays that GOD the Creator is worthy of love, obedience, praise, and reverence from his Creation. Developing and mature Christian believers are encouraged to accept the truth that forgiveness appears as an aspect of the divine active presence, eternal process, and inseparable sacred substance. Forgiveness is to be received as a fresh endowment of the same life essence (breath; spirit; word) that was imparted to Adam and Eve. Included were faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. While this and other divine content establishes opportunities and possibilities for created beings and living creatures to be in relationship with the Creator as heirs, offspring, and sons and daughters to GOD, both Adam and Eve violated the instructions they had been given, and transgressed against the divine law. The character and makeup of mankind was altered in such a way that all the descendants of Adam now receive an inheritance of being vulnerable to the operations of sin and ungodliness.

It is our profound need: it is not our ignorance, nor is it our innocence. It is what we have become through human error, and our condition as sinners who need change, release and repentance that qualifies us to receive a ministry of forgiveness that is extended to mankind through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD. It is not that we are worthy; it is that Christ continues to be received as worthy before the Father; and the Son may intercede on behalf of those who are truly guilty. It is not by our influence, our skill, our talents; it is because the makeup of GOD is made visible through divine judgment that features compassion, completeness, impartiality, mercy, and righteousness. On the basis of human accomplishments demonstrated through divinity using flesh and blood as Jesus Christ (we say, Incarnation), there now are no issues of merit and worthiness for sinners to receive forgiveness.

Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. 1st John 4: 8-11, King James Version (KJV): 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

2. Isaiah 53: 3-6, KJV: 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 3. Luke 7: 37-50, KJV: 37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, 38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. 39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner. 40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. 41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? 43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. 44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. 45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. 46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. 47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. 48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven. 49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also? 50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

The Father Is In Me

 

Today, reply is on the sacred process and operations of Incarnation, where divinity appears using the form of human flesh. Christians acknowledge Jesus Christ as the Son of Man, the Son of GOD, and a divinity because of operations within their consciousness, desire, and living substance that are performed by GOD the Father and the Holy Spirit, not because of intellect, logic, persuasion and carnal reason. Jesus went beyond answering as a spokesperson from GOD: the Lord portrayed the Father; completed divine works; provided sacred counsel and guidance; and pronounced sacred judgments. So to speak, Christian believers endorse the truth that Jesus Christ has appeared in the earth realm as an offspring and embodiment of divine spirit substance (i.e., holy seed; sacred DNA). Incarnation has been used on the earth as a tool for divinity to continue the correction of Creation required because of sin. There must be salvation and a new creation produced through direct action and participation by divinity both on the earth and in heaven before the penalty of death that came upon Adam and Eve can be completely removed and satisfied. Along with openly bestowing forgiveness, fresh endowments of divine content may be imparted to mankind; the penalties for sin can be delayed; and there can be a period of grace marked by reconciliation between Creator and created. Even so, these provisions do not totally eliminate sin; and there are operations in the heaven that must be completed that include continuing eternal life that is already begun, judgment, resurrection, the end of mortality, and fulfilling the second death. We are reminded: 1st John 2: 21-25, King James Version (KJV): 21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

If Jesus prayed to his Father and said he can not do anything without the Father in heaven, How can he be God?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (John 1: 18, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: We Must Acknowledge Christ (08/08/2019); Jesus Had GOD’s Approval (06/06/2019); The Evidence Is Spirit (05/29/2019); The Presence of GOD (04/02/2019); Continuing and Refreshing Creation (04/01/2019); Christians Are Following Jesus (01/24/2019); On Seeing The Father (12/04/2018); GOD Has Come Down (10/09/2018); These Three Are One (10/03/2018)

 

Anonymous”, you already have the answer to your question, however, like all Christian believers, you now are in a process from divinity to discover and realize what has been given you already. Mature Christian believers acknowledge instruction and sacred teachings that declare divinity has appeared among mankind on the earth using human form as Jesus Christ, and, in addition to accomplishing a holy sacrifice for atonement and propitiation for the sins of mankind, has demonstrated the authentic human makeup, process and substance intended by the Creator. To truly grasp these points of truth, one must first be established in the truth that GOD is a spirit. Later is becomes clear that GOD has authority, dominion, influence, ownership, power, and sovereignty over all that exists. The possibilities, process, and substance of spirit are different from those for material objects and physical matter. Spirit may become concentrated, or spread out (we say, diffuse); and may become infused within, or become intermingled within the spaces that exist as parts of any full structure visible to men. Spirit is not bound or limited by the frameworks of time and space used by men. The active presence of divine spirit can exist in an ongoing manner within human awareness and consciousness. Even so, spirit remains invisible and untouchable to physical human senses (i.e., seeing, tasting).

Through deposits from the divine makeup, mankind is to contain fresh endowments of spirit content imparted from the divine fullness (we also say, the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Included are faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Man must receive sacred knowledge that allows humans to function in the earth, to enter into relationship with one another as well as to communicate, exchange, and interact with the Creator. While Christians acknowledge GOD as the origin for all existence and life essence (breath; spirit; word), Christians are not pantheists who believe that divinity exists within everything on earth (e.g., all animals, insects, people, plants, rocks, trees). Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Deuteronomy 29: 29, King James Version (KJV): 29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

2. John 1: 1-5, KJV: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 3. Isaiah 55: 6-13, KJV: 6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
