Son of The Widow

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

 

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

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

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

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

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

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

Today, reply is on baptism as a divine witness displaying the character and makeup of divinity, resurrection, eternal life, and righteousness, rather than ceremonies, exercising authority over others, obedience, and the letter of the law. The forms of baptism depict a range of sacred operations that include absolution, atonement, judgment, refreshing, remission for sin, and restoration. Baptism does not complete the full transformation and perfecting of mankind to exist as immortal and incorruptible. Even so, the importance and sacred value of baptism is on record as inarguable. It is written: 1st John 5: 9-12, King James Version (KJV): 9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. 10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. The fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion and Spirituality who uses the ID “Norine” (Level 1 with 11 points, a member since October 01, 2019) posted the following:

 

Why when knowing only the baptism of John when there is a more perfect way of God do you continue in water baptism (Acts 18:25-26)?

Update: JOHN SAID IN JOHN 1:33

“…HE SENT ***ME*** TO BAPTIZE WITH WITH WATER…[BUT] THE SAME IS ((( HE ))) WHICH ((( BAPTIZETH ))) WITH THE HOLY GHOST.”

ACTS 19:4 SAYS “JOHN BAPTIZED WITH WATER WITH A BAPTISM OF ((( REPENTANCE ))) >>>BELIEVING THAT JESUS IS COMING”<<<

IS THAT WHERE TODAY’S “CHRISTIANS” ARE; >>>”BELIEVING THAT JESUS IS COMING”<<< CONTINUING IN A BELIEF OF A WATER BAPTISM THAT WAS DONE ((( UNDER THE LAW )))???

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. (John 5: 31-39, King James Version, KJV)

“Norine”, trusting that yours is a case of “gradual growth,” not one of “ever learning and never coming into the knowledge of the truth,” the continuation of water baptism among mature Christian believers is established by “the testimony of Jesus.” All who tarried in the Upper Room, and received the gifts of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost, first received water baptism, just as Jesus himself. Baptism that appears by the operations and visitation of the Holy Spirit is distinct from that carried out and performed as a ceremony and ritual manifesting the faith of men. The two are not interchangeable, nor does one cancel the other. In the same way multiple gifts of the Spirit are bestowed by divinity within the church that do not annul or eliminate divine law, adoption of the Spirit and other sacred operations complement one another, and are to edify the church. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

(1.) Matthew 3: 13-17, King James Version (KJV): 13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

(2.) 2nd Corinthians 5: 20-21, KJV: 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

(3.) Romans 10: 2-4, KJV: 2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. Revelation 19: 9-11, KJV: 9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Races and Ethnicities

Today, reply is on responses from Christians and people of color to increases, and threats of growing support for atheism, disbelief, and skepticism among Whites in America. Such elements as compassion, empathy, shared hardship, and shared service continue to operate as a bonding force among Americans along with ideas of brotherhood and fellowship that act as a lid preventing any overflow of conflict and confusion that might arise from plurality. Even where people of color have suffered discrimination, enslavement, genocide, and other forms of social injustice, they continue to regard it as contrary to their own authentic character and heritage as survivors on the earth to condemn others (no matter how outrageous their offenses) on the basis of skin-color and racial differences. As with Christian believers, there are those who prefer to forgive and forget; there are those who put the needs and well-being of the full community before their own. To abandon hope that others can receive salvation confesses despair, magnifies doubt, and promotes the lack of faith that oneself can be saved. It is written: 1st Corinthians 12: 12-22, King James Version (KJV): 12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20 But now are they many members, yet but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: A fighter in the “Yahoo!

Does it bother people of color knowing more and more white people are becoming atheists?

 

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. (Acts 17: 24-29, King James Version, KJV)

Nine thugs made good”, the operations of bias, caste, disbelief, ethnic arrogance, lawlessness, prejudice, racism, and sin have long been interwoven and inseparable in the mind of Blacks and other people of color (e.g., Asians, Native Americans, Island peoples). Even so, issues of higher priority now exist for Christian believers, and for many people of color. Included are the Second Coming of Jesus Christ; the fulfillment of end time prophecies; changes to life on earth through global warming; and the frequency of catastrophic weather events. Focusing on our shared needs as the caretakers of the future has released many from the self-contradiction and stupidity that accompanies viewing life in the narrow terms of racial differences. Many are suppressing anger, despair, fear, or resentment; yet, unprovoked distress and confusion continue to be fostered such as we presently see when viewing foreign students and workers. (While in America many Hispanics and Latinos are acknowledged as white-skinned; because they may be immigrants and non-citizens, they also are treated as a minority and non-white.)

In the same way mature Christians are saddened to see the alarming number of young people who leave the church before they have become spiritually adult and mature, people of color recognize that hidden and unannounced changes are occurring in their shared opportunities and possibilities among Americans. The response by the church to its youth must be to become set apart (sanctified), to renew sacred knowledge, and to impart fresh spiritual resources to neutralize dysfunction, underdevelopment, and violence. The response of America to its diverse population also must be to become set apart from the manipulations of politics, and to renew the commitment to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as one undivided Nation.

No one is blind or unfeeling regarding increased imbalance and instability. So to speak, without knowing what to call it, or how to describe it with words, we all can feel within our gut the difference between treatment that is righteous, and treatment that is wicked. Like the poor who are hungry for their own portion, and will use alternative behaviors to project the strength needed for survival, people of color around the world will refuse to overreact, and will continue to advance principles and values for family life, for lasting relationships, and for achieving prosperity. People of color will gladly endorse the standards and values of an America that also acknowledges and conforms to the doctrines and teachings of Christ. Few men who strive for honor and integrity will quarrel against being accountable to others, remaining interdependent, and accomplishing otherwise impossible goals through practices such as team work, mutual support, unselfish giving, and the patient endurance of suffering. All of us can correctly understand that cruelty, exaggerated pride, murder, and selfishness oppose the continued existence of the nation, of all life on the earth, and of life throughout the universe. Angry and bitter thrusts intended to antagonize a single poor man have the profound consequence of also fostering a return to the chaos, confusion, and streams of motion without direction that were in place before the founding of heaven and earth. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a presentation from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(1.) 2nd Timothy 3: 1-5, King James Version (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.

(2.) Galatians 3: 27-29, KJV: 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 Christs, then are ye Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise.

(3.) Colossians 3: 9-14, KJV: 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; 10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. 12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended (for example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPC0iXFGyJM). Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

He That Doeth

 

Today, reply is on the humility shown by Jesus Christ throughout his appearing on the earth as Son of Man and Son of GOD. Properly understood, the character and nature of divinity is spirit, is not fragmented, and exists as continuous and fluid. While required to maintain the practices and traditions for the covenant of Moses, Jesus also had to remain within the roles of intercessor, lamb of sacrifice, mediator, and divine spokesperson. Christ behaved with balance, forgiveness, restraint, and zeal as the marks and signs of his divine origin. It is written: Isaiah 53: 4-12, King James Version (KJV): 4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. 10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

What did Jesus mean when he said that the Father is greater than Him?

I believe Jesus is God as a Christian but why does Jesus say that?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. (Galatians 4: 4-7, King James Version, KJV)

(06/19/2018); What Divine Salvation Requires (05/15/2018); Christianity Is A Relationship (04/05/2018)

 

Anonymous”, the relationship of fathers to sons are to exist as aspects of divine order and lawful structure that suppress inordinate affection, exaggerated pride, irreverence, and overstated self-promotion. Even where we speak of GOD in heaven and the offspring of GOD on the earth, imperatives of accountability, inheritance, and divine law are to be acknowledged. Mature Christian believers agree that the full process of GOD to establish the Creation has included divinity appearing in human flesh as Jesus Christ. The use of Incarnation to embody the righteousness of GOD has permitted both the manifestation of divine power and the demonstration of authentic humanity. Jesus did not appear as a “similitude” (i.e., a graven image; an idol; a man-made figure believed to contain a god). Rather, he appeared on the earth as a son of man and a son of GOD having an inheritance from Adam of life essence (we say, breath; spirit; word), and having been formed within his mother by divine fullness in accord. Jesus is to be understood as displaying and reflecting the image of GOD who, without carnal form, remains invisible, incorruptible spirit. Christ aging, developing, and growing to adulthood were acts of a natural man under the authority of GOD, within the framework of covenant and divine law, yet, with the continuing influence and operations of the Holy Spirit. Believers should not be confused that the focus, message, and method of Christ does change over the course of his brief ministry on the earth. Jesus taught multitudes as an evangelist and prophet in the wilderness; as a rabbi in the synagogues; and as a miracle worker and sacred judge in the Temple at Jerusalem. At every level, and in every situation, Jesus displayed an endowment of immutable, inseparable, unchanging substance from divinity. Included were balance, continuity, faith, hope, humility, lovingkindness, meekness, oneness without sameness, personhood, eternal purpose, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider the following that uses language from the Bible, and a presentation from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(1.) Luke 2: 41-52, King James Version (KJV): 41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover. 42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. 43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it. 44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. 45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. 46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. 47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers. 48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. 49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? 50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them. 51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

(2.) Colossians 1: 12-20, KJV: 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

(3.) 1st Corinthians 8: 5-6, KJV: 5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) 6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Today, reply is on whether sinners are made “sin-free” by death. As part of the conditions for their existence and life, babies also receive a vulnerability to the operations of sin. Properly understood, death and mortality are divine tools to fulfill the eternal purpose of GOD as Lawgiver, Judge, Ruler over all Creation, and Savior of mankind in spite of the infirmity and weakness that continues on the earth because of sin. The fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden has required acts of GOD and a plan having multiple divine operations to release mankind from the consequences of their own actions. The errors (sin) committed by the first pair, entered into their lives like the barb on a fishhook, that goes in quietly and smoothly, yet, always tears the flesh when attempting to take it out. The expressed will of GOD (we say, the divine law; the word spoken) behaved like a barbed hook. It is written: 1st Corinthians 15: 56, King James Version (KJV): 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. One of the fighters using the ID “Anonymous” in the “Yahoo!

If at birth we are sinners, at death are we sin-free?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. (1st Corinthians 15: 21-26, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, mankind requires a new birth that may only be accomplished by a death and resurrection of divinity. The dead do not sin; even so, they will be held accountable for their actions while they were living. Divine operations for fulfilling lawful judgment and restoring Adam from their violation of relationship with GOD has required more than forgiveness. There also must be the use of mortality, death, and resurrection of the dead. Among mature Christian believers, it is understood that sin opposes the continued existence of divine law, the Lawgiver, and the entire Creation. Sin is no spirit or substance put forth by GOD, yet, sin may dominate consciousness and self-will (willpower) within created beings and living creatures. The operations of sin can not be eliminated, destroyed, or reversed as though sin were an ordinary man-made, material object. Only through forms of death can those who commit sin be released from its influence. While the sinner will not continue to commit sin, the living will be challenged by their offenses and the consequences of their deeds for as much as four generations (160 years). The appearance of divinity using the form of human flesh and blood (we say, Incarnation) has permitted mankind to become “born again” and “mature again” through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The same life essence (breath; spirit; word) imparted to Adam at Creation and that resided within Jesus is provided from the makeup of GOD, and believers are to exist as the new creation. Included are faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. In addition to discernment and the ability to realize that sin is contrary to both divine and human nature, Christ has provided expectations (hopes), understandings, eternal works, and sacred visions that allow the heart and mind of his disciples to live above condemnation, fear, and spiritual confusion. The members of his church are to be those experiencing new life as vessels of divine spirit and the offspring of GOD. There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended.

Be it unto you according to your faith.

The image depicts Christ calling those who would to serve as apostles, his first disciples, laborers for the harvest and fishers of men.

 

Today, reply is to a fighter who compares forms of government and spiritual leadership on the earth. Properly understood, apostles, bishops, deacons, and pastors (shepherds) preside as officers over faith communities and congregations. The present plan of divinity is that mankind exist as a kingdom where all will communicate and operate as offspring of GOD. Saints and those joined to GOD share a fresh endowment of spirit content imparted from the makeup of divinity (we also say, the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth). Even many developing Christian believers err when comparing priestswho are officially anointed and ordained to offer sacrifices on a holy table (altar) where heaven and earth are joined—against prophetswho are appointed as spokespersons sent by GOD. Where GOD once provided patriarchs, elders, and judges (deliverers), operations of the flesh and of sin resulted in the establishment of temporal authorities that included chiefs, emperors, governors, monarchs, pharaohs, and Caesars. Through Jesus Christ, mankind has received commandments, examples, and principles for conduct and relationship that serve as civil and sacred law from GOD. The church founded by Jesus is to be an eternal, sacred body; even so, many become entangled within institutions and organizations that use the name of Christ, yet, do not transform men to be Christ-like. In Christ, the dominion, ownership, and sovereignty of divine fullness has appeared and been made manifest on the earth using human form (we say, Incarnation). While the character, process and substance of GOD are entirely from spirit that is invisible and without form, divinity (we also say, the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) are to be acknowledged as presenting personhood, eternal purpose, and sovereign will. Inseparable aspects of divinity include faith, holiness, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. It is written: 1st Samuel 12: 14-19, King James Version (KJV): 14 If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God: 15 But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as it was against your fathers. 16 Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD will do before your eyes. 17 Is it not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto the LORD, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking you a king. 18 So Samuel called unto the Lord; and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel. 19 And all the people said unto Samuel, Pray for thy servants unto the LORD thy God, that we die not: for we have added unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king. “Anonymous” in the “Yahoo!

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. (John 18: 36-38, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, GOD is using multiple relationships to make divinity knowable, known, accessible, and approachable by created beings and living creatures. Monarchs and Popes rule over two forms/levels of community defined using carnal, physical, and social concepts. Divinity has used many different figures to guide and instruct those on the earth; and while there has been hierarchy, ranks, and other distinctions, competition and conflict have rarely been expressions of divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. Among mature Christian believers, the holy writings also present the revelation of mankind’s growth and development while being restored from the effects of sin, and while undergoing a transformation to exist permanently as companions to divinity, who continue to relate to those on the earth as an invisible spirit in form and substance. Multiple devices and mechanisms have been used by divinity to communicate, exchange, and interact with created beings and living creatures. Included are oral history, priesthood, seers, and living tradition through Adam and the Patriarchs, who each lived for nearly 1,000 years. Continuity and relationship with the living that are uninterrupted by death have been maintained through such devices as family, inheritance, tribes, dynasty, empires, immutable unchanging truth, and nations as well as institutions and organizations chartered and sanctioned through civil and sacred law. Also the active presence we speak of as “GOD” has been acknowledged through birth, death, forgiveness, rebirth, healing, Incarnation, preaching, proclamation, promise, prophecy, resurrection, unselfish service, and suffering. That divinity has appeared on the earth using human form does not cancel divine ownership of the heaven and earth. Jesus Christ should be acknowledged as the highest and most complete embodiment of divine authority, dominion, and power over the earth. The anointing upon Jesus has been that of Chief Architect of the Holy City (New Jerusalem); High Priest; King; Sanctified Servant; Sacred Judge; Prophet; and the Firstborn from The Dead. Through the ministries of Jesus on the earth and from the heaven, developing and mature Christians are to exist as the new creation. As offspring of the Most High and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ, all are to display the image of the Father, and the same life essence (breath; spirit; word) that was imparted to Adam from the makeup of divinity. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a presentation from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

1. Ephesians 4: 4-7, King James Version (KJV): 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all 7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

2. Ephesians 4: 10-15, KJV: 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

3. 1st Corinthians 12: 27-31, KJV: 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

4. 1st Timothy 5: 17-18, KJV: 17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. 18 For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended (for example, 5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5G8dZTWwvmU). Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

 

 

AN AFTERTHOUGHT: Offices appear within the Catholic church as an institution that did not exist within the early church appearing in Scripture. Included are abbots, cardinals, confessors, monseigneur, and Pope. Before his conversion on the road to Damascus, Saul of Tarsus (later known as the Apostle Paul) filled a role as an executioner and an inquisitor who persecuted the early church on behalf of the Temple leaders at Jerusalem. Correctly understood, the authority of the Pope as infallible is the same as the dispensation granted Moses that allowed decision-making in judgment that could be authoritative and final unless a direct intervention by GOD would be required. The monarchs who have ruled over England, Great Britain and related territories have held the secular title of king, queen, emperor, and empress. A continuing argument has been made that succession for nobility and royalty are by dispensation of GOD and “divine right.” Also, the same laws of the realm for inheritance that govern the transfer of ordinary estates, goods, and property are cited as the true covenant declaring their benefits and privileges as well. The ruling monarch is regarded by many to be the temporal head of the Church of England. In the same way the Pope is head over the Vatican as an independent nation and sovereign state, and his authority is exceeded only by Jesus Christ, many hold the ruler of England is a chief officer of the church on the earth whose authority is only exceeded by Jesus Christ. Even so, many are cautioned to grasp that a house divided against itself can not stand. Given the multiple conflicts that arise because sacred and secular truth are often in opposition, these institutions appear built on sand, rather than the solid rock. Matthew 7: 24-27, King James Version (KJV): 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Judah Enticed by Tamar

According to the Leverite law, Tamar was to marry the son of Judah; when Judah repeatedly required that she wait, she entrapped him by disguising herself as a harlot.

 

Today, reply is on sacred law being biased against females, and what appears to some as a widespread low regard for the worthiness of females as full members of the body of Christ. For many such bigotry and prejudice are disturbing, for there is an inarguable excellence for women above men, because only females may serve as those who actually bear children as fruit within their own bodies, and who fulfill the unchanging eternal purpose of GOD wherein mankind independent from divinity reproduces to populate the earth. Many feel that sacred practice as commanded in the law of jealousy is overly harsh and unfeeling. Even so, a woman has rights to receive inheritance as a primary heir; and there are specific laws to continue the integrity of her father’s name over her estate so that his family does not lose through marriage their allotted portion of the Promised Land provided by GOD to their tribe through Moses and Joshua. Going further, Jesus Christ taught as a principle when applying covenant law that mercy is better than sacrifice. Abuse and cruelty against women are condemned and forbidden. It is written: Malachi 2: 12-16, King James Version (KJV): 12 The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the LORD of hosts. 13 And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand. 14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. 15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth. 16 For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

Anonymous”, you appear to have little understanding of the sacred knowledge that is shared among developing and mature Christian believers. Christian belief is having continuous consciousness of the existence and operations of divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Christianity is broad and forward-looking, and goes beyond the finite human frameworks for philosophy, science, and secular knowledge as well as the human tools for time and space. Women are accounted as valuable members of the full body and indispensable partners who continue the ministry on earth of Jesus Christ.

Created beings and living creatures can become conscious of, and respond to, divinity as active presence that appears through multiple operations of spirit substance using objects in the earth. Included are things carnal, concrete, material, mechanical, physical, social, tangible, and visible. A process of reproduction through intercourse and sexual joining has been provided to mankind little different from that bestowed on the different animal and other pairs. The process of conception, development, and birth occurs displaying fixed patterns and sequences governed by mechanical and natural law, more than through divine law and direct sacred intervention as with the birth of the prophets Jeremiah, John the Baptist, or Jesus Christ.

While women do appear as a prophet (we say, prophetess) in Old Testament writings, through the covenant laws provided to Moses, Joshua, and others, females were denied a place in priesthood until New Testament times. The historian and gospel-writer Luke reports females who maintained and supervised places for gatherings of Christian congregations (churches) within their own homes. Even so, until Jesus Christ, females and all Gentiles appear to have been censured, condemned, and labeled as greater sinners than Hebrew males. Correctly understood, because of their menstrual cycle and likelihood of defilement through their flesh (in particular, their blood), the sacred law required women be set apart from the men of the congregation to re-dedicate themselves to GOD as would a Levite in private prayer with fasting, offerings, and supplication. Seeming to continue to acknowledge principles shared among the Pharisees, the Apostle Paul provided instruction to the early church that has continued unto this day. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Leviticus 12: 1-7, King James Version (KJV): 1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean. 3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. 4 And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled. 5 But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days. 6 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest: 7 Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the law for her that hath born a male or a female.

2. Genesis 38: 24-26, KJV: 24 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt. 25 When she was brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff. 26 And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 3. 1st Timothy 2: 8-15, KJV: 8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

AN AFTERTHOUGHT: The law from GOD to transform the loosely organized tribes of Jacob to appear as a legitimate nation among the existing kingdoms of the world correctly acknowledged the differences between females and males regarding issues of endurance, health, and stability. Women were to demonstrate repentance through calm, humility, modesty, quietness, respect, and piety. The purpose of divine law was not to legislate conduct and deportment by imposing etiquette and manners, so much as it was to establish a human community on the earth that would display the spirit of GOD. In no way did the law of GOD give males license to belittle, enslave, mock, or torment their intended life companions and partners from GOD. In the Scriptures we see that women maintained their own property, operated businesses, and even served as deliverers in times of war. Many of the traditions begun with Adam and Eve were eventually written into the judgments and codes of law delivered by Moses, Joshua, and others as the expressed will of GOD.
