Absent from the Body

 

Today, reply is on the commitment to his own existence and life that mankind is to make in response to Jesus Christ who appears as Creator, Redeemer, Savior, and Judge. While the process of life features continuing conflict between the flesh and the Spirit, the living are to acknowledge their own body as a temple home for life essence imparted from GOD, and respect gatherings of those sharing faith as a divinely provided habitation for the spirit. It is written: Ephesians 2: 18-22, King James Version (KJV): 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Why do religious people live their lives so cautiously? ?

By that I mean, if you believe in God and afterlife wouldn’t you live as ethically reckless as possible to facilitate your early demise? I’m an atheist and since I know this is the only life I get I tend to want to prevent my death. If I believed in a god and heaven I would not wear my seat belt for example since I would prefer eternal life in heaven. Do I make any sense? 😂

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. 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. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. (Romans 14: 7-9, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Disciples and “Little Christs” (11/05/2019); One Body, Many Members (10/17/2019); Present With The Lord (08/05/2019); The Gift Of GOD (10/15/2018); A Question On Suicide (11/30/2017); Suddenly Absent, Suddenly Present? (03/31/2013); A Family Affair? (04/01/2013)

 

Stop-and-frisk this, Bloomberg!”, you make sense just as the Apostle Paul, who expressed being in conflict about continuing to serve on the earth, or going to be with the Lord. It remains that, Christian belief is focused on commitment and living as a companion to immortal, incorruptible, invisible divinity, rather than death; and is focused on performing duty and unselfish service, rather than pleasure and self-promotion. Sinners who become part of the new creation of GOD through Jesus Christ must become permanently changed and transformed through operations of the Holy Spirit (we say, they must become “born again” and “grow up again”). As developing believers, all are to become mature/ripe while on the earth, and will be harvested by the Lord at his coming. Christian believers are to resemble, reflect, and reveal the image of GOD, and the likeness of Jesus Christ through their lifestyles and daily routines. All are granted benefits, opportunities, possibilities, and privileges on a divine scale for they receive within their consciousness and self-will (willpower) inseparable aspects of the divine makeup. Included are balance, completeness, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. As vessels of divine spirit content (sacred DNA, so to speak), Christians are the offspring of GOD and those in fellowship with divinity. Believers will be held accountable for the grace and freely given gifts bestowed on them, and are to operate acknowledging sacred law, divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of John Michael Talbot:

(1.) 2nd Corinthians 5: 1-10, King James Version (KJV): 1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

(2.) Philippians 3: 7-14, KJV: 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 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, 9 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: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 12 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. 13 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, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

(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.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended (for example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGbb1ry1Hoo.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on the benefits, gifts and privileges granted to mankind from divinity that are described within the holy writings. Because so many of the gifts we desire for anniversaries, birthdays, and at Christmas are carnal, material, and social in their character, form and substance, many lack sacred knowledge, and are unfamiliar with the gifts provided through Jesus Christ to establish the new creation. Sinners who return to GOD as followers of Jesus are given a fresh endowment of life essence from the makeup of GOD whereby they become children of GOD, the offspring of divinity, and vessels of divine DNA, so to speak. Inseparable spirit substance It is written: 1st Corinthians 2: 11-13, King James Version (KJV): 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 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.

Today, reply is on new life and salvation for mankind by becoming joined to divinity through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The holy writings acknowledge the dead that have gone to the grave and are no longer among the living as well as a class among sinners and those pursuing pleasure who are “dead while they live.” Developing and mature Christian believers increasingly acknowledge that the church founded through the Incarnation of divinity as Jesus of Nazareth is now in a spirit process where new life is bestowed on us through the resurrection of Jesus, rather than the through the human operations of conception and birth. While sinners must undergo the death and burial of their inborn spirit in baptism, they also must be “made alive” and revived by receiving fresh endowments of the same life essence (breath; spirit; word) that was imparted to Adam. So to speak, by receiving divine DNA, and becoming vessels of seed from the makeup and substance of GOD, sinners are to become sons and daughters of GOD, joint heirs with Jesus Christ, and the new creation. Those who become “born again”, must “grow up again” to become mature/ripe for harvest by the Lord at his coming. Following the close of the tribunals for their judgment, the final transformation of those belonging to Christ will occur as they go to meet him in the air. It is written: 1st Corinthians 15: 50-57, King James Version (KJV): 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 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. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

norine”, the increase of Jesus foretold by John the Baptist includes the shift from new life by water baptism to new life by the power of Christ’s resurrection. Unlike those who are unrepentant, who practice iniquity, those accepting the forbearance and forgiveness of divinity continue will be in reconciliation throughout their transition to be Christ-like. Both sinners and Christians must be transformed by operations of the Holy Spirit to exist as life companions with GOD who is immortal, invisible spirit. There must be a simultaneous action within the frameworks of time and space whereby life is imparted and introduced at the same time death that releases from sin occurs. Even so, developing believers are not yet perfected. The church is to be built up and edified by enduring “growing pains” and life challenges. Believers are to remain on the earth displaying spirit substance from the makeup of GOD having godly lifestyles and daily routines of discovery, gradual growth, praise, prayer, sacred practice, study of the holy writings, unselfish service, and suffering. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Romans 6: 3-7, 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.

2. 1st Peter 2: 21-25, KJV: 21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 3. Philippians 3: 7-14, KJV: 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 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, 9 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: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 12 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. 13 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, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.)

Jesus Christ shown as The Sower imparting divine seed

 

Today, reply is on judgment, the sowing of divine seed, and the selection of those who receive revelation. The principle described by the divine operations of election also are spoken of as divine prerogative, grace, eternal purpose, inheritance, promise, and the sovereign will of GOD. Thus, divine offspring, heirs, and the seed of GOD appear in the earth. It is written: Romans 9: 8-16, KJV: 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son. 10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; 11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. 14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

Susie”, the Bible teaches that all men do not have faith that is a spirit substance within the full makeup of GOD; and all men have not believed the Gospel. Most Christians understand that GOD is exalted because he has put forth all things having consciousness, existence, and life. His authority, knowledge, power, and wisdom are that of one having dominion, and ownership. GOD is one who reigns and rules (we say, one who is sovereign); and has put forth law that expresses his will. Such believers acknowledge that GOD continues a process to assign value, determine what will be the duration of things as well as what things will be preserved forever to serve immortal divinity. In this, GOD is to be understood as one and who makes immutable decisions, and final dispositions as judge.

It is an unchanging purpose of divinity (we also say, the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) that men and women exist without interruption (e.g., condemnation because of sin; death; mortality; sleep). Humanity is to be a life companion with GOD who is Spirit, who is invisible, and who is immortal. The deeds and works of the living are examined for the sacred quality, process, and substance that must be in place as the fitness and readiness of created beings and living creatures to be in an ongoing relationship with GOD. There must be possibilities for communication, exchange, and interaction that display a meaningful connection to GOD; and inseparable aspects of the image of (we say, Christ-likeness; godliness; divine DNA; holy seed) must appear. Included are faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. John 4: 23-24, King James Version (KJV): 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

2. Luke 8: 4-8, KJV: 4 And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable: 5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. 6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. 8 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

3. Luke 8: 11-15, KJV: 11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. 14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. 15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. Psalms 50: 14-23, KJV: 14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High: 15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me. 16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee. 18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son. 21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. 22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. 23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.) 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.

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.

I Have Said

 

Today, the reply addresses the ongoing transformation of mankind to exist eternally as a life companion to divinity. At the coming of Jesus Christ to harvest the earth of those belonging to him that are mature/ripe for eternal life, the permanent change will be completed in the twinkling of an eye whereby mankind will no longer be corruptible or mortal, and will endure along with divinity forever. Men on the earth anointed and endowed to serve as divine priests, prophets, judges and kings are to be obeyed and respected as the sons of man (Adam), and children of the Most High. Thus, it is written: Luke 3: 38, King James Version (KJV): 38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God. Also, Deuteronomy 14: 1-2, : 1 Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead. 2 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth. Exodus 4: 22-24 KJV: 22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: 23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.

Fellow Christians: why would someone say the Bible says people are gods and ard becoming gods?

Please clear this up because that sounds wrong to me.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all. Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name. (1st Chronicles 29: 10-13, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, some of the most challenging doctrines and teachings within the Christian system of belief are involved, here. Several distinctions and meanings have to be separated to avoid spiritual confusion. In the holy writings, “gods” are (1) man-made objects mistakenly believed to contain divine persons, to have authority and power, or that may act having dominion in the natural world; therefore graven images and other objects (we say, idols) are reverenced and worshiped to gain benefits, favor, and privilege. To be a “god” means (2) to have the same attributes, authority, knowledge, power and privilege that describe the Creator. Also, “gods” are (3) vessels of divine seed and spirit substance from the makeup of divinity; therefore, having “life essence” (breath; “DNA”; spirit; word) from the divine fullness (we say, the Creator; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit), created beings and living creatures may be called “gods” meaning the offspring, the sons and daughters, the children of GOD. Mankind was created to exist (4) as a companion (“god”) to immortal, incorruptible divinity, and therefore, was to endure as eternal, godly, and perfect. Additionally, (5) where men on the earth display the “image of God” (inseparable spirit substance from the makeup of divinity such as faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, wisdom, wrath against sin) they are accounted as heirs to divinity, joint-heirs with Jesus Christ, and the new creation. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Genesis 3: 1-6, King James Version (KJV); 1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

2. Galatians 3: 26-29, KJV: 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

3. Isaiah 63: 16, KJV: 16 Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. 1st John 3: 7-11, KJV: 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

A Good Tree

 

Today, reply is on how to correctly discern, recognize, and respond to sinners who become developing Christian believers.  Within the Scriptures, a Christian “bearing fruit,” refers to their lives displaying sacred consequences, effects, outcomes, and products. In the final judgment of GOD, distinctions will be made on the basis of such features as the sacred fruit a believer has produced; their cooperation to accomplish eternal purpose; and their full display of inseparable divine substance. In addition to acts of kindness, godly doctrine, prophetic demonstration, obedience and observance of divine law, and continual practice of sacraments, believers will be acknowledged and discerned by having served as vessels for imparted Spirit. It is written: Galatians 5: 19-23, King James Version (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. A fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion and Spirituality who uses the ID “Princess” (Level 3 with 1,487 points, a member since November 06, 2018) posted the following:

 

Christians often quote “By their fruit you shall know them” but also state “Everyone is a sinner”. If everyone is a sinner, and we know them?

…by their fruits, are there NO Christians?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. (Ephesians 5: 8-11, King James Version, KJV)

(12/21/2016); Fruits From a Barren Tree? (12/07/2013); The Barren Tree? (12/06/2013)

 

Princess”, as those who are Christ-like, Christians are to display the image of GOD through behavior and conduct that are godly, that addresses eternal purpose, and that acknowledges the sovereign will of GOD. To exist as a Christian believer is to live in a condition of continuous change, discovery, gradual spiritual growth, and transition. Sinners who return to divinity by accepting accountability for their attitudes, behavior and conduct, and who seek to build or renew a personal relationship with divinity, are given a fresh endowment of life essence (we say, divine DNA; breath; spirit; word) from the makeup of GOD. Through operations of the Holy Spirit, a sinner’s inborn spirit must die and be buried. They must be “born-again” and “grow up” again to become mature/ripe for harvest by the Lord at this his appearing (we also say, the Advent; the Rapture; the Second Coming).

The character, makeup, and nature of invisible, unseen divinity (we also say, divine fullness; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) must be recognized and responded to as active presence. The full range of spirit qualities and values that exist as divinity are inseparable, and where one appears, all are present. Included are faith, forbearance, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Developing believers increasingly will practice discernment where ones own spirit content is used as a standard to identify the spirit content within events, messages, practices, other persons, the holy writings, etc.

Guidance, instruction, and warnings are shared among Christians that are to further their learning and growth. Their perfection and transformation will be complete as they are lifted to meet Jesus Christ in the air. While yet alive and on the earth, Christians are to remain alert, prayerful and vigilant, for they will encounter many deceivers, false prophets, and disguised inducements to sin and error. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. 1st John 1: 5-10, King James Version (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.

2. 1st John 2: 1-6, KJV: 1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 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.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
