Today, reply is on the revealed character and nature of sacred judgment and the widespread, yet not commanded expectation of divine wrath against sin that long has appeared among mankind. Anger, cowardice, and fear are human emotions and feelings displayed through the flesh while acknowledging the awe, greatness, holy boldness and divine wrath of GOD are inseparable aspects of their divine fullness along with such features as balance, commitment, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. It is written: Psalms 145: 3-13, King James Version (KJV): 3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. 4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. 5 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. 6 And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness. 7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. 8 The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. 9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. 10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. 11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; 12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. 13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

Christians why are people afraid of God the Father?

Is it because they believe he is angry?

THE GOLDEN ARROW: He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

“Nightwolf”, some confuse being in awe with being afraid. Mankind may not rely only on finite human intellect, carnal reason, and science for a right knowledge of divinity. Here are some points that are to be shared among Christian believers who are preparing to meet Jesus Christ at his coming. Mankind has not been fashioned to be cowardly and to cringe before divinity, yet, all who exist and live throughout the universe are to be conscious that GOD is awesome in every aspect. Rather than acceptance, forgiveness, and divine lovingkindness, many on the earth expect to meet GOD in a judgment that is filled with divine destruction and loathing against mankind. Divinity has appeared and operated in the Creation of heaven and earth, and is to be known as those having dominion and ownership over all that exist and all that have life. In addition to displaying authority, oneness without sameness, power and sovereignty through sacred law and acts of GOD (we say, miracles), divinity is embodied within the life-process and living routines of mankind (e.g., birth, aging, becoming mature, death). Divinity practices judgment (i.e., assessment; assigning meaning and value on the basis of ones content of the spirit imparted from the makeup of GOD; determining ones eternal duration) as a divine prerogative, an eternal purpose, and a necessary expression of celestial majesty. More than a crude and cruel demonstration of divine disfavor, judgment privileges Creation to realize multiple aspects of the character, makeup, and nature of divinity such as balance, impartiality, mercy toward those found guilty in tribunal, restraint, and consecrated righteousness. As creatures from the dust, men cannot apprehend the full breadth and depth for relationship with GOD, yet, numberless provisions have been made to embrace, guide, instruct, and sanctify humanity as companions to the Holy. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection, Draw Me Close To You, from the music ministry of Bishop Marvin L. Winans:

(1.) Hebrews 12: 6-11, King James Version (KJV): 6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

(2.) Revelation 3: 18-22, KJV: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Today, reply is on divine salvation to preserve sacred content within the living, and the idea that men are granted wings and become angels when they die. Properly understood, sinners are not “saved”,
rather the divine substance that remains within them is to be saved.  The present process of GOD for mankind upon the earth provides forbearance, grace, reconciliation, and renewal through Jesus Christ.  Among Christians the continuous worship of angels as equals or substitutes for Jesus is accounted as little different from the keeping of idolatry, the practice of occultism, or plain superstition.  Divinity is the origin and source of all that has existence or life; and despite the transgression of sacred law
committed by the first pair (Adam), mankind continues as an authentic expression of divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign
will of GOD.  Sinners are to practice repentance, and mercy is bestowed on those found guilty in judgment in keeping with their identity as the offspring and vessels on the earth that embody divine substance, yet, that require cleansing, death, the Incarnation of
divinity as Jesus Christ, and the gifts of resurrection life.  Continuing with counsels intended for the people of GOD through Jesus Christ, it is written: 2
nd Corinthians 5:  14-20, King James Version (KJV):  14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for
all, then were all dead: 15 And
that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto
themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.  16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh:  yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we
him no more.  17 Therefore if any man be
in Christ,
he is a new creature:  old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;  19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.  20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christs stead, be ye reconciled to God.  A fighter in the “Yahoo!

So why should you sinners be saved? You wouldn’t be free without wings?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past. And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that
wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.  I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked:  for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work. I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them:  as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast:  for all is vanity.  All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? (Ecclesiastes 3: 15-21, KJV)

N Harmonia”, among mature Christian believers salvation for sinners who acknowledge GOD through repentance appears as an immutable and unchanging aspect of the makeup, process, and eternal purposes displayed by divine fullness (i.e., divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Judgment is the assignment of value, and the examination of created beings and living creatures for their content of spirit-matter imparted from GOD as life essence (we say, breath; spirit; utterance; word), or as a fresh endowment of the divine nature made possible by Jesus Christ. The image of GOD is to appear within mankind and be a stamp upon all Creation. Multiple divine operations are carried out to acknowledge, preserve, recover, and restore the sacred content provided to Adam in the Creation.  Included are balance, commitment, faith, holiness, humility, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. While on the earth, the followers of Jesus are to exist as the new creation, and are to resemble, reflect, and reveal the character and likeness of Jesus. Just as dogs do not become cats or goats become horses, where men complete their mortality (die), they are not made by GOD to become angels or any other living creature.  Rather, those chosen through judgment will become perfected as humans who are immortal companions to GOD.  Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Acapeldrige, High Above the Seraphim:

(1.)  Ezekiel 1:  1-10, King James Version (KJV):  1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.  2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachins captivity,  3 The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him.  4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.  5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures.  And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.  6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.  7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calfs foot:  and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.  8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.  9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.  10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

(2.)  Colossians 2: 6-12, KJV:  6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:  7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.  8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.  9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.  10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:  11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:  12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

(3.)  Colossians 2: 18-19, KJV: 18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,  19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

Today, reply is on the integrity of divine fullness being in a continuing relationship with created beings and living creatures on the earth along with whether it is “normal” to believe that GOD may die. The death of Jesus Christ on behalf of all divinity was a sacred event that must exist as a one-time act of GOD never to be repeated; and that must be apprehended and received through faith. Among developing and mature Christians, to manifest grace is “normal” for divinity. Because GOD is understood as the origin and source for all material things that exist including the full universe it is in line with human intellect, logic, and carnal reason to assume that divinity is all-powerful, immortal, and invincible. It remains a result from the operations of sin and of the flesh that divine process and sacred substance are required whereby mankind receives the appearance of GOD on the earth (we say, Incarnation) using authentic human form and life process (e.g., birth, aging, maturation, death). It is written: 1st John 4: 7-11, King James Version (KJV): 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. The fighter at “Yahoo! Answers” Religion & Spirituality who uses the ID “kei” (Level 1 with 43 points) posted the following:

Christians believe that Jesus died. As a God, is it normal. ?

THE GOLDEN ARROW: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2: 20, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: A Matter Of Self-will? (10/04/2020); Incarnation, Death and Resurrection (05/11/2020); The Resurrection Of Christ (04/16/2020); Grace Abounds Much More (04/02/2020); Born Mortal or Immortal? (03/11/2020); Entered Into Divine Glory (09/03/2019); That Not Of Yourselves (08/13/2019)

“kei”, among Christian believers divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Creator; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) are active and present within the existence and life of all living creatures and created beings. Divinity resides within a special sphere of life (we say a celestial, sanctified, and set-apart realm; heaven), yet, communicates, has exchange, and interacts with those who are alive on the earth. There is a divine connection between GOD and the living. Mankind has received life essence (i.e., breath; spirit; utterance; word) from the makeup and substance of GOD that includes inseparable aspects of the divine nature such as balance, commitment, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Even so, the Creation has come under the influence of divine sanctions (i.e., statements within the law of GOD that require consequences both for obedience and for transgression that is understood as sin). The first pair (Adam) became subject to death as a result of transgression, and could only be preserved by operations of divinity that include an extensive array of sacred provisions. Included are atonement, forbearance, forgiveness, inheritance, mercy granted to those found guilty in judgment, justification, rebirth, redemption, restoration, resurrection for the dead, salvation, sanctification, the completing of mortality, the sacrificial death of Christ on the cross, and the second death. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(1.) Romans 6: 3-14, King James Version (KJV): 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

(2.) John 3: 16-21, KJV: 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

(3.) Romans 14: 7-9, KJV: 7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. 8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. 9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

(4.) Hebrews 10: 12-21, KJV: 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

I recently heard a sermon broadcast at familyradio.org that included an account of the Cave and the Sun visiting one another so they might understand the others repeated references to “darkness” and “light”.  As Christian believers, our anchor and focus for answering the challenging discourse and thoughts others share must always be the proclamations, promises, prophecies and unchanging purpose we receive from divinity.  In that presentation, the Cave first visited the Sun and was dazzled by the presence of light that appeared to be everywhere.  When the Sun made its visit to be with the Cave, the Cave led the Sun to a deep crevice to see gross darkness.  However, both the Cave and the Sun saw only light.  The Cave displayed isolated pits and other locations to the Sun.  However, they all were filled with light.  The Cave remarked that these places were filled with darkness until the coming of the Sun; and to me the point of the sermon seemed to be, life throughout Creation was filled with darkness until the coming of Jesus Christ.  In reflecting on what I had heard, I realized the Cave and the Sun account is regarded by many as a classic of wisdom, yet, I remained unwilling to become entangled in fleshly truth or discourse that challenges the Bible.  Beyond the cycles of darkness that present shadows and night there are multiple aspects of darkness that serve divinity.  Included are gross darkness, obscure darkness,
unfathomable darkness, and unspeakable darkness. Similar accounts have been found among the Sufi as well as the writings of Plato; and have been held to be an allegory, analogy, or parable distinct from a fable (that provides a lesson using animals and objects that speak).  It is written:  Isaiah 60:  18-20, King James Version (KJV): 18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.  19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee:  but the L
ORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.  20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself:  for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.  Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and the selection from the music ministry of John Michael Talbot:
 
 
 
THE GOLDEN ARROW:  In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.  Thy vows are upon me, O God:  I will render praises unto thee.  For thou hast delivered my soul from death:  wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

Today, reply is made that, for condemned persons to escape hell, there must be the appearance and operation of divinity to anoint and transform their relationships with GOD, rather than merely the operations of forgiveness, peer pressure, or human self-will. The behavior sciences, emotional appeals, beatings, cruelty, punishments, threats, and warnings can not bring about a lasting change in someones character and spiritual makeup. Being expressions and workings of the flesh, such influences and manipulations all are temporal in their nature and process.  It is written:  Revelation 3: 14-22, King James Version (KJV):  14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot:  I would thou wert cold or hot.  16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:  18 I  counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye-salve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Updated 1 hour ago:  If a serial killer believes in God and that Jesus died on the cross for their sins, why is that person able to go to heaven while a person doesn’t believe in God but has done good in their lifetime get sent to hell? God should be more forgiving to his disbelievers.

 

 

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin,  live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ; were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: (Romans 6: 1-5, KJV)

Anonymous”, here are some points to consider that at first may seem to be difficult. Forgiveness alone does not correct or eliminate the operations of sin among the living.  More than this, it is not enough that there be an invisible, passive, unseen “god” whose character and nature are “good.”  From birth, the process of life is additive, and there is a continuing need for judgment. Divinity must become known, approachable, and accessible to all created beings and living creatures. Sin is correctly understood as opposition to the existence of all order put forth by divinity (we also say, divine fullness; the Godhead; the Word; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Included are the existence of sacred law; divine self-expression, personhood and prerogative; proclamation, prophecy, revelation; and the sovereign will of GOD. By opposing both existence and life, sin that is no “thing” created or put forth by GOD promotes a return to the conditions of chaos, confusion, and flux that we now speak of as preexistence before heaven and earth where no matter that now appears had presence, and all things were in continual motion without direction. Fixed, immutable, unchanging elements must appear that serve as a reliable foundation for duration, knowledge, meaning, process, substance, and value. The issue of existence goes beyond merely pleasing divinity, obeying authority, becoming mature (i.e., balanced, committed, complete, consistent, stable), human opportunities, or the diverse possibilities among the living. While sin includes blasphemy and
contradiction, corruption, defilement, and self-destruction, repentance, rebirth, and resurrection from the dead overturn sin and its effects. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Carol Dennis and the 1st AME Church (Los Angeles, CA):

 

(1.)  John 1: 1-5, 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. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

 

(2.)  1st Corinthians 3: 11-17, KJV: 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every mans work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every mans work of what sort it is.  14 If any mans work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.  15 If any mans work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

 

(3.)  Isaiah 28: 9-20, KJV: 9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom
shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.  12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. 13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.  14 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. 15 Because ye have said,  We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us:  for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. 17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. 18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. 19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you:  for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night:  and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report. 20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it:  and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.

 

(4.)  Romans 8: 5-9, 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.

 

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually
apprehended. (For example, (5.)  THE ANOINTING IS HERE,   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQ-0vei7pxk.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on the practice of judgment among Christian believers and acknowledging the already revealed outcomes of divine judgment.
Forgiveness is a gift of grace, not an outcome of judgment. Final
judgment by divinity results in either eternal life or
the second death. Even so, the work of Creation is guided and fulfilled through judgment, and the word of GOD continually operates as a tool for assessments and valuations. Christians are to receive the resurrection life bestowed upon Jesus Christ, and are to conduct themselves as those in the final stages of divine judgment. Properly understood, the benefits and privileges of judgment include admonition, correction, guidance in decision-making, the resolution of conflict, and the settlement of disputes by applying the conditions and sanctions declared within the law. Such judgment is not a sudden, unforeseen condemnation where the meaning and value for ones accountability, authority, merit, and presence are cut off and permanently denied. It is written: 1st Corinthians 11: 31-32, King James Version (KJV): 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Anonymous”, many of the outcomes, principals, and processes for divine judgment have already been made known to mankind and established through the
revelation of Jesus Christ. While Christian believers are commanded to avoid practicing judgment against one another and those outside of the body, it remains that day-to-day fellowship and walking with Christ entails making fruitful choices, practicing discernment, responding to fixed and unchanging sacred standards, and acknowledging the final judgments against sin that have already been
proclaimed and published by divinity. The tribunals of GOD are to display divine justification, and are not intended to give opportunity for those appearing to offer explanations, or justify themselves. As an aspect of eternal purpose proclaimed through the law and the prophets, judgment is not a one-time event; and judgment speaks to righteousness by the law through both its letter and its
spirit. Therefore, judgment addresses transgression of divine law; also judgment examines whether operations of imparted spirit substance that have resided within created beings and living creatures have correctly resembled, reflected, and revealed the character and likeness of Jesus Christ. Without being clairvoyant or
enabled to read other peoples thoughts, and without being able to foretell the future, Christians are to recognize the patterns that others willingly display that
express their heartfelt convictions, and expose their likely choices (ABCDEFG, xyz is coming). Judgment of the righteous dead and those alive on the earth who belong to Christ will be completed before they are perfected in the first resurrection. The Great White Throne judgment requires that a second resurrection must occur for the wicked dead and those that were not harvested in the first resurrection. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:
 
(1.) Isaiah 57: 15, King James Version (KJV): 15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
 
(2.) 2nd Timothy 3: 1-5, KJV: 1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of
those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
 
(3.) 2nd Corinthians 6: 14-18, KJV: 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:  for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement
hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And
will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
 
(4.) Malachi 3: 16-18, KJV: 16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that
serveth him. 18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Today, reply is on life as an inseparable aspect of the full process and
substance of divinity. Life has not so much been created and then
placed within mankind as imparted and shared with mankind using forms
such as anointing, utterance, and word. Where there is life as a
divine endowment from GOD there also are such elements as balance,
faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without
sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. It is written: John 1:
1-5, 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. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and
the darkness comprehended it not. A fighter in the “Yahoo!

The One”, as an aspect of eternal, immortal, incorruptible and
invisible GOD, life is only imparted to the living, and is itself not
something created. Mature Christians are encouraged to consider that
multiple features in our human experience have been imparted to
mankind through deposits and endowments of spirit matter from the
makeup of GOD. Included are inseparable aspects of humanity that
include breath, existence, life, personhood, and spirit. Chemical
and mechanical process for material things are regulated through
form, fixed sequences, and operations of natural law while exchange,
interaction, and progressions of spirit substance are determined and
directed through sacred law. Chance appears as the discrete
possibilities created by the movement of finite influences and fixed
objects; and chance is not an expression of divine prerogative,
sacred law, covenant promise, prophecy, eternal purpose, or the
sovereign will of GOD. Similarly, the operations of sin may dominate
consciousness and self-will (willpower) in the living; and impulses
or thrusts to sin themselves do not derive from any divine material.
Just as sin does not display or proclaim the divine will, sin does
not conform to human logic or carnal reason. Sin opposes the
continued existence of divine order, sacred law, the universe, and
all divine fullness. Consider again the following that uses language
from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Deitrick
Haddon:
 
(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.)  Galatians 5: 19-24, KJV: 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell
you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
 
(3.)  Romans 8: 5-9, 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.

Today, reply is on the divine provisions for mankind to have complete and correct knowledge of divinity. In the same way displaying existence and life describe all created beings and living creatures, all the living possess awareness and an indelible innate consciousness of divine fullness (i.e., divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). The living are granted a primal and rudimentary knowledge of GOD that is to become elaborated, focused and refined through instruction, maturation, sanctification, and suffering. GOD is known to mankind by continuing as active presence manifest in spirit process and substance. Sacred knowledge may be acquired as prophecy and edification; and otherwise hidden truth is revealed and discovered through gradual growth, learning, discernment, practice, and study. It is written: 1st Corinthians 2: 12-14, King James Version (KJV): 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Princess”, GOD is known by divine spirit process and substance. Most mature Christian believers will agree that acquiring sacred knowledge and a mature consciousness of divinity are accomplished through multiple sacred devices and operations. Included are all mankind being endowed with a measure of the same life essence (breath; spirit; utterance; word) from the makeup of GOD that was imparted to the first pair (Adam); the appearance of divinity on the earth using human form and life process as Jesus Christ; water baptism wherein a person’s inborn spirit dies, is buried, and is raised from the dead (we say, they become born again); receipt by the living of a fresh endowment of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD (e.g., faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, wisdom, wrath against sin); and the multiple possibilities of an inheritance as the new creation established through the ministry of Jesus Christ. The natural world as our sphere of life is a sacred expression from divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. Even so, mankind relies heavily on the finite tools of intellect, logic, carnal reason, science, and self-will (willpower). Academic studies and secular knowledge do not permit complete and correct knowledge of divinity. The operations of sin that oppose the continued existence of sacred law also promote a return to the conditions of preexistence, and challenge the integrity of the divine order that appears as the universe. Sin disrupts and undermines mechanical process and sequence, and therefore, results in evil (catastrophe) and upheaval. Our human potential for self-expression can be displayed in behavior that is animal, human or godly, for the earth and we ourselves bear the image and marks of GOD as our Creator. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a music selection from the music ministry of Wintley Phipps:

(1.) Psalms 19: 1-5, King James Version (KJV): 1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 4 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, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

(2.) 1st John 4: 7-9, KJV: 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.

(3.) Romans 1: 18-23, KJV: 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

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

The image shows Jesus Christ serving as the divine High Priest in heaven who makes atonement for sin on the earth.

 

Today, reply is on the recovery of mankind from sin, and mankinds transformation by divine fullness requiring the appearance of divinity in the earth using human flesh and life process as Jesus Christ. The process and substance of divinity appearing to mankind on the earth is one to establish unchanging divine order, permanence, and the eternal nature of consecrated truth. Only those who are called, who willingly respond, and who voluntarily endure will apprehend the high prize of GOD. Through the operations of divine judgment, and fulfillment of the second death, mankind is to be sealed as immortal and incorruptible. It is written: Hebrews 10: 26-29, King James Version (KJV): 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 He that despised Moses law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? The fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion & Spirituality who uses the ID “𝐸𝓂𝓂𝒶 ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ” (Level 2 with 964 points) posted the following:

 

Christians, why do we need to believe in Jesus to be saved?

According to the latter half of the old testament, God was already opened to forgiveness through repentance over sacrifice, centuries before Jesus. And according to the books of maccabees, it was already a strongly held belief that God would send the righteous to heaven though faith. In the second book of maccabees, a Jewish family consisting of a mother and her seven sons, were all tortured one by one for not giving up their faith, but they already believed that staying strong would land then a place in heaven.

So why is Jesus necessary for salvation?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3: 7-14, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Grace Abounds Much More (04/02/2020); Trying To Stop Sins (04/01/2020); “Because You Are Believers” (03/17/2020); Those Who Are Convinced (12/08/2019); In Relationship With Divinity? (08/16/2016); Products of The Cross? (04/27/2016); Called of GOD? (08/02/2015)

 

“𝐸𝓂𝓂𝒶 ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ”, more than salvation must come into view. Mature Christian believers acknowledge that mankind became subject to death and other unwanted conditions through the transgression of divine law, and may only be corrected and restored through multiple operations of divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). GOD appears among created beings and living creatures within consciousness and self-will (willpower) as active presence, and uses multiple devices and sacred operations to become knowable, known, accessible, and approachable. Included have been sacred law, expiation for sin, family and inheritance, covenant relationships, Incarnation (using human flesh and life process to appear on the earth), priesthood on the earth modeled after that in heaven, promise, prophecy, reconciliation, revelation, judgment, and resurrection of the dead.

It is the expression of divine prerogative, consecrated personhood, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD that mankind will exist as a companion to immortal, incorruptible, invisible divinity. Sin has not been eliminated by the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Even so, through the priesthood of Jesus, the living now may be transformed by receiving a fresh endowment of the life essence (breath; spirit; word) that was imparted to Adam at Creation. Men are to undergo the death and burial of their inborn spirit; and become “born again” as the offspring and children of GOD having divine DNA, so to speak. Inseparable aspects of the divine makeup are imparted such as balance, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. All are to “grow up again” on the earth, and become mature/ripe for harvest by the Lord at his appearing (the Advent; the harvest; the Rapture; the Second Coming.)

As vessels of divine seed, sinners who turn to Christ increasingly are to display the image of GOD, and are to resemble, reflect and reveal the character and likeness of Jesus Christ. Such finite human tools as academic instruction, secular knowledge, carnal reason, science, and self-will can not bring about the salvation of mankind. As developing believers, joint-heirs with Christ, and the new creation, those who are “born again” display new lifestyles and daily routines that include discovery, gradual growth, performing sacred practices (e.g., praise, prayer; worship), study of the holy writings, unselfish service, and suffering. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(1.) Jeremiah 31: 31-33, King James Version (KJV): 31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

(2.) Romans 6: 3-4, KJV: 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

(3.) Hebrews 9: 11-15, KJV: 11 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; 12 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. 13 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: 14 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? 15 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.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlYp5ek4I4E.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Justified through faith

 

Today, reply is to the charge that divine judgment is in error when sinners are condemned to annihilation or to torment and the second death. While those living on the earth may receive benefit, grace, and privilege as offspring, heirs, and the children of GOD, none are granted dominion and consecrated righteousness above that of the divine fullness (i.e., Deity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). All created beings and living creatures exist as expressions of divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD; and the living can not make excuses or justify their continued existence in opposition to sacred law and person. Divinity is challenged to provide justification for the continued existence of those who have betrayed divine accord, covenant relationship with divinity, and the sacred imperatives of divine being. It is written: Isaiah 45: 18, King James Version (KJV): 18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. One of the fighters in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion & Spirituality who uses the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

 

How do Christians justify the idea that all non-believers are going to hell?

I’m aware this is not something all (or probably even most) Christians believe in, but for those who do: do you really see non-believers as “deserving” of eternal suffering? How would you sleep at night with this philosophy?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. (Acts 17: 24-31, KJV)

Anonymous”, the elimination of mankind by death is not sufficient to eliminate sin and its consequences. As a result of Adam’s transgression against divine law, and mankind becoming subject to death, among Christian believers, justification is a sacred process performed by divine spirit that permits the continued existence of mankind, and their recovery from sin. Divine fullness (divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) who are the origin and source of all that exists and has life does not have to justify their existence and works to finite created beings and living creatures. The operations of sin promote nonexistence, and a return to the conditions of preexistence that include chaos, confusion, and movement without direction. The Creation that has been put forth by divinity is a material expression from operations of spirit that appear as sacred law, mechanical process, natural law, the frameworks of time and space, and much more. Christian believers are to acknowledge that the process and substance of GOD is a fullness of spirit matter that has put forth the spheres of life and all they contain, all eternal purpose, and all that has godly value. Inseparable aspects of the divine makeup are to exist within the awareness and self-will (willpower) of mankind. Included are balance, faith, forbearance, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. As the origin and source for the sacred law and divine order that establish the universe, divinity exercises accountability, authority, commitment, impartial judgment, divine prerogative, and sovereign will. While GOD does not respond as subject to the desire and will of any greater being or power, mankind has been put forth as one of many created beings and living creatures whose abilities, nature, properties, and traits have been predetermined by GOD as the Creator. Man is to display the image of GOD, and is to resemble, reflect, and reveal the character and likeness of Jesus Christ. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Dietrick Haddon:

(1.) Isaiah 51: 12-13, King James Version (KJV): 12 I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; 13 And forgettest the LORD thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor?

(2.) Isaiah 55: 7-11, KJV: 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.

(3.) Romans 8: 33-35, KJV: 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2YfMZ4_JQI ) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
