Today, reply is on how Jesus Christ has accomplished a saving relationship with those who were not yet conceived, born, or even imagined during his lifetime on the earth. Divinity communicates, exchanges, and interacts with mankind using the broad range of human social
associations including family, inheritance, tribe, dynasty, and nation.  It is written: John 17: 13-21, King James Version (KJV):  13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  17 Sanctify them through thy truth:  thy word is truth.  18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us:  that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

How did Jesus die for my sins if I wasn’t even born or existed when he was alive?

 

 

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: O LORD, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears. And what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel, whom God went to redeem to be his own people, to make thee a name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations from before thy people whom thou hast redeemed out of Egypt? For thy people Israel didst thou make thine own people for ever; and thou, LORD, becamest their God.  Therefore now, LORD, let the thing that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant and concerning his house be established for ever, and do as thou hast said. Let it even be established, that thy name may be magnified for ever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel, even a God to Israel:  and let the house of David thy servant be established before thee. For thou, O my God, hast told thy servant that thou wilt build him an house:  therefore thy servant hath found in his heart to pray before thee. And now, LORD, thou art God, and hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:  Now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may be before thee for ever:  for thou blessest, O LORD, and it shall be blessed for ever. (1st Chronicles 17:  20-27, KJV)

sdadsad”, here, we have to think and speak in terms of sacred proclamations, promises, prophecy, and the revelation from GOD. While the process of divine fullness (we say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) to establish existence and life for mankind has included multiple levels of natural and secular operations that display mechanical patterns and sequences, natural laws, carnal reason, and material substance, the universe is a product of divine self-expression through sacred law, divine order, supreme prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD.  The frameworks of time and space do not interfere with or limit divine fullness who may appear using human form and life process (we say the Incarnation as Jesus Christ), yet also appears and is manifest as Spirit without fixed form having the capacity of both measureless contraction and expansion. Long before their birth, a fetus becomes a child and a newborn within the understanding of a mother. The child becomes an object of her affection, a focus for her feelings,
thoughts and possibilities, an aspect of continuity for her heritage
and inheritance, and may even foster her prayers, sanctification, and
thanksgivings to GOD. Consider again the following that uses
language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of
Steve Amerson:

 

(1.)  Psalms 78: 5-8, King James Version (KJV): 5 For he established a
testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded
our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: 6
That the generation to come might know them, even the children
which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: 7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: 8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

 

(2.)  1st Chronicles 17: 16-18, KJV: 16 And David the king came and sat before the LORD, and said, Who am I, O LORD God, and what is mine house, that thou hast brought me hitherto? 17 And yet this was a small thing in thine eyes, O God; for thou hast also spoken of thy servants
house for a great while to come, and hast regarded me according to
the estate of a man of high degree, O LORD God.  18 What can David speak more to thee for the honour of thy servant? for thou knowest thy servant.

 

(3.)  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.

 

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually
apprehended. (For example, (4.) The Mind of Christ,

Even so, I
trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your
faith.

      Whether we should continue to use childhood prayers in high school and thereafter is the topic, today. Also, there is more on children’s church. The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using the ID “Catroina” (Level 1 with 123 points, a member since March 20, 2013) posted the following:

Am I getting to old for these prayers?

(Before Bed)
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep,
If I shall die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take. Amen.
God bless everybody in my family and make me a good little girl.
(Before Dinner)
God is Grace and God is Good,
Lord we thank you for our food,
Bow our heads, we must be feed,
Give us Lord, our daily bread. Amen.
I’m a freshman in high school. Am I getting to old for these prayers, or can you keep saying them forever? Just wondering.


THE BATTLE AXE: Issues for Children’s Church (04/06/2013)—(6.) The birth mother is the first teacher (i.e., human agent and spokesperson for GOD) to her own child, and divine instruction within the home is to be under the headship of the father. In addition to guidance that socializes a child to acknowledge others as responsible members of the congregation, young believers must have demonstrations that affirm that what was begun and continued within the home is harmonized with, increased by, and reconciled to gifts and ministries in heaven and upon earth, during time past, present and yet to come, throughout the full congregation as well as for created beings, living creatures, and those unseen throughout the universe of GOD. (7.) All teaching in the church is by the operation of the Holy Spirit. The same truth must go forth to all despite differences in age, ethnicity, gender and social standing; the same divine law and Gospel of salvation are to be imparted to all. Just as at Sinai—where every full grown man, woman, expectant mother and yet unborn child along with minors, teenagers and young adults, shared the experience of feeling and hearing the voice of GOD proclaim the terms of covenant—the sacred process that fosters comfort, edification and prophecy continues as both verbal and visceral. Divine substance must be conveyed including faith, fear of the Lord (i.e., reverence, right respect), holiness, joy, longsuffering, wisdom and wrath against sin. See Deuteronomy 4: 32-40, Isaiah 54: 13-15 and John 6: 45, King James Version. 
 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. (Revelation 5: 1-8, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: A Spirit Church? (04/04/2013); My Brother’s Keeper (04/05/2013); Eat His Body, Drink His Blood (03/21, 2013); Foolish For Not Believing? (03/22/2013); Grandchildren? (03/23/2011); A To Do List (03/24/2011)

      Catroina, many mature Christian believers trust that every acceptable prayer they have ever offered to GOD continues to be useful as a sincere expression of their innermost feelings and personal understandings, and an eternal link binding us to the Holy. While our practice of prayer as children begins with simple rhymes, and may appear as vain repetition, we quickly grasp that our attitude, our tone, and many other subtle elements infuse our prayers with beauty, power and sacred substance pleasing to GOD. What others may mock because of its simplicity, in fact, is deep and profound; and is usually not said often enough, and can not be spoken too many times, like heartfelt “thank you,” and “I love you.” 
 
      As we grow emotionally, physically, psychologically, and spiritually, the concerns we should share with GOD through our prayer relationship also change. In addition to the embrace of our day-to-day, real-world challenges, crises and emergencies, we should begin to unselfishly address a broad range of life duties, family issues, fears, goals, growing pains, and our sacred work of spreading the Gospel. As a gift and tool from GOD, our prayers should share, and show to GOD, who we really are through our private feelings and thoughts. However, prayer should never be a matter of “me, myself and I;” self promotion, and the demand to “have our own way.”

      There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, repeating the Lord’s Prayer, or the Rosary should be continued as part of ones prayer life, however, these should not be relied upon as the only communication offered in ones prayer life. Like the sacraments of confession and the Lord’s Supper, the practice of memorized prayers, or even prayers that quote verses from the Bible, should be recognized as works of faith that, of themselves, do not bestow salvation. Believers must accept that their salvation is only through grace, by faith in the work of GOD in the person of Jesus Christ, and through the Holy Spirit.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
