The Tomb of Resurrection

 

Today, the reply shares some points on the salvation from GOD, who is a spirit, that does not seem to appear among Buddhist, Sikhs and many other belief systems. In accordance with the holy writings, Christians acknowledge Jesus Christ as sent from GOD to fulfill sacred proclamations, promises, and prophecy. It is written: Acts 4: 11-12, KJV: 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Also, 1st Corinthians 3: 11-14, KJV: 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. A writer in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion and Spirituality who uses the ID “Johnny Uzumaki” (Level 1 with 2 points, a member since October 23, 2015) posted the following:

 

Jesus is the way but not the only way to god( see description)?

Update: If someone loves God, then God loves him back. God does not care which religion you belong to as long as you love Him and remember Him. God will not destine anyone to hell just because he or she is not a Christian. Furthermore, Jesus never said that if you belong to a religion other than Christianity, you will be destined to hell. Respectfully, this notion is introduce by some missionary Christians in order to convert people to their religion and appease their numbers.

Update 2: Sikhs believe that salvation can be attained by anyone who meditates on God regardless of their caste, color, class, gender, or religion. God is not bound by boundaries, He is omnipotent. Sikhs believe that Sikhism is the simplest, most straightforward way of realizing the present of God, to be One with Him, and attain salvation, but in no way Sikhs claim that Sikhism is the only way to attain salvation.

Update 3: Similarly, Sikhs do not believe that Jesus is the ONLY way to attain salvation. Before Jesus was born, people who worshiped God attained salvation. Dhruv is one of many devotees who attained salvation before Jesus was born. If Jesus is the only way to attain salvation then how did the people who existed before Jesus attained salvation? After Jesus was born, many people who did not even know that Jesus existed attained salvation in India.

Update 4: In thirteenth and fourteenth century, when people in India did not even know that Jesus existed, the devotees of God attained salvation in India. (Note: Europeans did not discover India until fifteenth century). Among those devotees that attained salvation are Naamdev Ji, Kabeer Ji, Sain Ji, Dhana Ji, Ravidas Ji and many more whose hymns are in the Holy Scripture, Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

Update 5: In their hymns they have written about their longing to meet God, how they worshiped to meet God, and finally attained salvation. Furthermore, the way they took to meet God is the same way Jesus showed to Christians, which is to worship and meditate on God, be sinless, renounce greed, lust, ego, anger and arrogance.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. (Matthew 28: 6-8, King James Version, KJV)

Johnny Uzumaki”, on this day acknowledged as Resurrection Sunday, I am sharing with you the same answer respected by sinners throughout the world who already have willingly turned to Jesus Christ as their Savior, and have become developing and mature Christians. There are multiple streams of sacred knowledge and divine truth that make Christian belief “one of a kind,” and “the only way.” In Christian belief, divinity is acknowledged as the origin and source for all that exists, for life (all that exists is not living), and for the necessary transformation of the living to exist in an ongoing eternal relationship with GOD. More than simply the sacrificial death of a human on the cross and his being raised from the dead must come into view.

Sin opposes the continued existence of sacred law, of the Lawgiver, and all divine order. Mankind’s relationship with immortal, incorruptible divinity as a life companion now is interrupted by death and mortality that result through the operations of sin that are inherited as the human condition. On the basis of mechanical process and natural law, mankind can not overcome the limits of finite apprehension; consciousness anchored in appetite, sensation, emotion/mind; temporal duration; and human self-will (we also say, determination; might; willpower). Sin is contrary to divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of the Creator. Even so, sin may dominate awareness and self-will in created beings and living creatures; and sin is no ordinary material thing that may be eliminated by a simple divine act of destruction.

There must be a fresh endowment to mankind of the life essence (we also say, breath; spirit; word) that was imparted from the makeup of GOD to establish the first “living soul.” Included are faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Through operations by GOD made possible by the appearance of Jesus on the earth, those who become “born again” are to live on the earth and “grow up again” as living vessels filled with divine substance. Believers are to become mature/ripe for harvest from the earth when Christ will appear (we say, Advent; the Rapture; the Second Coming). Thus, the process of GOD promotes experience such as decision-making, discovery, gradual growth, fellowship, learning, repentance, sharing, study of the holy writings, unselfish service, and suffering. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. 1st John 4: 1-10, King James Version (KJV): 1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. 7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

2. 2nd Timothy 1: 7-10, KJV: 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; 9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, 10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 3. John 3: 16-21, KJV: 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

The Gift of GOD

 

Today, reply is on how the multiple ministries of divinity to Creation oppose the operations of sin on behalf of all created beings and living creatures. A fighter in the “Yahoo!

I was born without sin. So what can Jesus offer me?

Since nobody is guilty for anything their ancestors may have done. What else can Jesus do for his followers?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.

(01/06/2017); Birth, Self-will and Sin? (11/13/2016)

 

Dr Yes level 9 since 1999”, the various streams of sacred truth that are being shared by mature Christian believers with sinners who choose to become developing Christian believers make clear that the problem of sin is more than simply emotions, errors, and feelings such as fear, forgetting, guilt, mental lapses, regret, shame and sorrow. For all created beings and living creatures, sin is an enigma whose existence can not be explained, and a peculiar mystery whose origin, operations, and substance can not be attributed to the divine Creator. Sin opposes the continued existence of sacred law (the expressed will of GOD), the Lawgiver, and all divine order throughout the universe. Sin has no ordinary carnal, material or spiritual content that may be destroyed in a single act of divine violence, and the effects of sin continue indefinitely (i.e., as many as 4 generations, 160 years) following the death of a sinner. Sin may dominate consciousness and self-will (we also say, willpower) within the living.

Sin is a human predicament that is now an aspect of continuing existence for all mankind that the living themselves can not eliminate or remove using finite tools such as academic and secular knowledge, carnal reason, intellect, logic, philosophy, politics, science, technology, and critical thinking. It is to be understood that the problem of sin is being addressed by the divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) through divine prerogative, grace (unmerited favor), lovingkindness, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, the death of Jesus Christ on the cross has not ended, or finished the operations of sin; however, men now may receive fresh endowments of the same life essence (breath; spirit; word) that existed within the makeup of Jesus as the offspring and heir of GOD. Inseparable aspects of divinity are imparted that include balance, faith, forbearance, holiness, longsuffering, restraint, wisdom, and wrath against sin. The otherwise invisible and hidden operations of sin may be more completely detected, recognized and answered with godly responses.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Anonymous”, mature Christian believers find it easy to grasp that the makeup and full substance of mankind is more than dust from the ground. There are aspects of humankind that are not carnal, material, mental, or social, and must be spoken of as “profound”, for they consist of things that describe divinity, existence, and life essence (we say, breath; spirit; divine utterance; word) imparted to mankind from the substance of GOD (we also say, divine fullness; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). With this in view, the character, content, process and quality of created beings and living creatures can be assessed, evaluated and judged on the basis of their measure of sacred consciousness, divine endowment and eternal purpose, not merely by what appears as finite behavior, desire, and self-will.

Science provides hypothesis and theory in order to establish mechanical and natural laws. Using only secular knowledge, the scientific method proposes to accurately describe all the relevant patterns and relationships appearing when measurable dimensions and phenomena are manipulated. Therefore, the tools that identify genuine science include experimentation, observation, the recording of precise information, and continuing research. While the various fields of science have permitted exciting dialogue and engaging speculations on the origins of mankind, the solar system, and the universe, science, in fact, offers no better than such claims that “something” began from “nothing”; there was a great explosion having no known cause, that separated into discrete parts something that once existed as a whole; or there is an expansion of the mathematical point (having no known origin) that now exists as the framework for time and space.

Christianity requires ones full lifetime, and can not be apprehended overnight, for it is a comprehensive and direct system for developing ones consciousness and self-will pertaining to such topics as divinity, duration, existence, fruitage, life, meaning, origin, personhood, purpose, oneness without sameness, sanctification, and value. Revelation is the sacred process wherein divinity is made knowable, known, accessible and approachable to created beings and living creatures. Spirit substance from the makeup of GOD is imparted to the living that enables their understanding of sacred mystery. Included are faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Sinners are to become born again, exist as developing Christian believers, and become mature/ripe for harvest at the return of Jesus Christ (we say, the Advent, the Rapture, the Second Coming). Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Genesis 1: 1-3, King James Version (KJV): 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

2. Isaiah 40: 25-26, KJV: 25 To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. 26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

3. Romans 1: 20-23, KJV: 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

4. Isaiah 40: 28-31, KJV: 28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

5. Isaiah 55: 6-12, 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.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 6. 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.

Today, reply is on knowing the mystery and sacred secrets of GODhead. GOD—who is spirit—does not exist using the same relationships described for created beings and living creatures; even so, for the comfort and encouragement of life, GOD is to be known and spoken of as continuing in the same relationships that are meaningful among mankind. Mature Christian believers accept that the sacred knowledge they receive regarding the spirit process, substance, and workings of GOD will not provide the same detail and features as secular knowledge that center on things finite, material, and measurable. A profound consciousness of spirit presence first must be in place before the created may apprehend the truths of divine existence and sacred personhood, or the nature of commitment, communication, exchange, and interaction among the divine. The great gulf between immutable, incorruptible, invisible GOD and those who have been emanated and put forth requires all they receive be understood as merely approximations, estimates, hints, and suggestions that must not be held as full, or complete.

If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

Anonymous”, among Christian believers, apart from the teachings and works of the church and the holy writings, there is nothing that exists within the material and natural world that explains the existence of GODhead (we also say, divine fullness; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit), and all the relationships they use as otherwise unseen active presence. The information provided from GOD to his created beings and living creatures (we say, the revelation) that speak to his origin, power, presence, sovereignty, and workings throughout the universe must be accepted as spirit substance that, of itself, is accurate, truthful, and sufficient. In addition to the form and life essence (i.e., breath; spirit; word) imparted to the living as their own makeup and substance are inseparable aspects from the makeup of divinity whereby those created are to apprehend and be apprehended of GOD. Included are faith, forbearance, forgiveness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, oneness without sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible—a human record of divinity appearing through thousands of events, within thousands of lives, over the course of thousands of years:

(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.) Hebrews 11: 6, KJV: 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

(3.) Colossians 1: 12-22, 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. 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) 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.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on the divine creation of evil as well as the evil generated and maintained by disbelievers and sinners. Like sacred events (we say, miracles) that conform to their own set of divine laws, evil that carries out and fulfills divine intent does not violate divine order, natural law, or sacred law. The two different origins of evil put forth different circumstances and conditions, and display different forms, operations, eternal purpose, and sacred substance. Many mistakenly entertain the thought that evil and wickedness can not exist in the presence of divine holiness, majesty, and purity; and that GOD may not exist where evil has control and power. One of the fighters in the “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality forum who uses the ID “Anonymous” (no profile data appears) posted the following:

 

Why do people who don’t believe in God say that if he was real there wouldn’t be evil?

If God was real why would he have to live up to someone’s standards? If he’s our creator he can do what ever he wants to us he doesn’t need anyone approval. Do people not believe cause they can’t stand the fact of something being more powerful than them?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand. And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage. Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil. (Micah 2: 1-3, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Condemned By The Bible? (06/08/2018); Divine Devices for Judgment (06/04/2018); With A Divine Eye (05/02/2018); How Is Flesh Evil? (10/28/2016); All Is Vanity? (07/28/2015); Evil Is Not Sin And Wickedness? (12/09/2014); Divine Goodness? (12/10/2014)

 

Anonymous”, many things developing Christian believers will see among sinners and those obeying their own flesh express vanity (the absence of spirit content from GOD), spiritual confusion, and exaggerated pride. The evil they promote does not express awe (i.e., acknowledge the awesomeness of GOD; fear of the lord), and is contrary to all existence, life, and divine order. The three persons who exist as one GOD (the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) have used Creation to display their oneness without sameness, sacred authority, divine prerogative, and sovereign will. Evil as a creation of GOD is not the same as the evil that describes human character and makeup, or evil displayed by mankind as iniquity, sin, and wickedness. Where evil is a divine tool, evil may appear as calamity, disaster, suffering, or “the unexpected” and “the unknown.” Evil will be an overturning or sudden reversal of human circumstances and conditions to establish the correct acknowledgment that only GOD may supply many of humanity’s continuing needs; that mankind also must fulfill eternal purposes; and that the living must continually respond to the active presence (we also say, breath; life essence; spirit; word) who is GOD. To have a complete and correct knowledge of divinity requires a person become transformed by the operations of GOD in their life. We say, You must be born again!, however, those “born again” must “grow up again” and become mature as vessels of divine spirit. A sinner must receive a new inner makeup that includes spirit substance from the Creator. Inseparable aspects from GOD should appear such as commitment, discernment, faith, forgiveness, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

(1.) Isaiah 5: 21-22, King James Version (KJV): 20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

(2.) Ecclesiastes 8: 11-13, KJV: 11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. 12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: 13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.

(3.) Genesis 6: 5-6, KJV: 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

(4.) Galatians 5: 19-23, 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.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (5.) James 1: 12-15, KJV: 12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on the divine fullness described in the Bible as speaking in the persons of GOD the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality public forum who uses the ID “😌” (Level 6 with 10,663 points, a member since June 16, 2013) posted the following:

 

If the Holy spirit has spoken and Jesus has spoken and God has spoken to Jesus during his baptism, Luke3:22 aren’t they 3 individual Gods?😌?

Just curious please, each of them have spoken for themselves, according to the Trinity. So what do you say is happening?

Holy spirit speaking – Acts 13:2

Jesus speaking – John 6:38

God speaking to Jesus and calling him his Son – Luke 3:22.

All 3 spoke before and God spoke of Jesus as his Son from heaven while Jesus was on earth. In verse 21 of Luke 3, the Holy spirit is coming down upon Jesus from heaven while Jesus is on earth, before God speaks and says those words from heaven..Three seperate Gods?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. (1st John 5: 6-8, King James Version, KJV)

“😌”, the sacred knowledge from GOD that is shared with sinners who choose to become developing Christian believers is not the same as the information we create and share with one another as ordinary human beings in material settings. Consciousness in created beings and living creatures continues to function in agreement with multiple aspects of the flesh (e.g., appetite; sensation; emotion/mind); may be dominated by the operations of sin; and primarily rely on such finite tools as imagination, intelligence, logic, carnal reason, philosophy, politics, science, and secular knowledge. In order for someone to apprehend the existence of divine substance that has form only as active presence (we also say, breath; life essence; spirit; word) a profound transformation of human makeup must occur (we say, a person must be “born again”).

Divinity (we also say, the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) is the origin of all that exists and has life. Divinity may be described as the full collection of inseparable spirit substances that exist throughout the universe. Included are faith, forbearance, forgiveness, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Existence and life have been imparted to created beings and living creatures, yet, none may endure as completely independent and separate from GOD. In addition to the character, makeup, and substance of GOD being understood as having completeness, Christians also ascribe to GOD coherence, immortality, integrity, oneness without sameness, personhood, divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and sovereign will.

While GOD does not age or grow old, and divinity is immutable and unchanging, he appears (becomes manifest) and is made visible using created objects that include the living. GOD has completed many divine works by appearing as Jesus Christ and ministering on the earth using human form (we say, the Incarnation; being born, aging, dying, being raised from the dead). Divinity may embody or indwell living beings, however, does not use man-made objects such as graven images and idols.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, those who become “born again” by acknowledging GOD through baptism (i.e., a death and burial of their inborn spirit, with rebirth from divine seed, so to speak) must “grow up again” and become mature/ripe for harvest from the earth by Jesus Christ at his appearing (we say, the Advent; the Second Coming). As the new creation, developing believers will increasingly display the same Spirit that was in Jesus Christ.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on the origin of divine grace, rebirth and salvation as sacred gifts that become available from GOD through the ministry of Jesus Christ. The fighter in the public forum at “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality who uses the ID “Christian sinner” (Level 7 with 212,433 points, a member since November 28, 2006) posted the following:

 

What did John the Baptist mean when he said this? Did John mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g? How do you see it?

John 3

27 To this John replied, “A person can receive only what is given them from heaven.”

Update: If John was right and he meant everything is received from heaven, then are atheists not given something very important? Like an ability to trust in Christ? Are the atheists who never trust in Christ incapable of trusting Christ because God didn’t give them the ability?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4: 11-12, King James Version, KJV)

Christian sinner”, be encouraged. Although John the Baptist served in priesthood at the Temple in Jerusalem, under the influence of the Holy Spirit (we also say, the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Truth) that he received before his birth, John established a ministry preaching repentance, performing baptism, and proclaiming the kingdom of GOD would soon appear. The many sacred gifts granted to mankind from the divine fullness (we say, the GODhead) allow those living on the earth to be in a lawful, ongoing, personal relationship with divinity. Included are atonement for sin; covenant law; grace; divine inheritance; joining to the oneness without sameness that is shared among the divine fullness (we say, the Godhead); and the privilege of serving as anointed kings, ministers, and prophets on the earth. These, and many other blessings are possible only through actual operations of the active presence we know and speak of as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Developing Christian believers are to acknowledge that the makeup and operation of human consciousness and self-will were imparted to mankind from Creation as life essence (we say, breath; spirit; the word of GOD). Because the operations of sin dominated human awareness and willpower within Adam (the male and female), the living now must receive a fresh endowment of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD (we say, A sinner must be “born again” having the Spirit imparted from GOD, and grow up again (i.e., mature) while living on the earth. By being filled as vessels of divinity, sinners are transformed, and through discovery, gradual growth, learning and service they acquire the “ability” to receive, recognize, retain, and become fruitful using the things from GOD to address his eternal purposes.

Through Jesus Christ, sinners who repent, and contain his personhood and Spirit exist as the new creation, the sons and daughters of GOD, and joint-heirs with Christ. While men on the earth may share with one another the benefits of divine ministry from Jesus as the Risen Lord and High Priest of heaven, none may bestow the divine gifts of glory, holiness, honor, purity, redemption, salvation, and eternal life as though these are the products of human imagination, intellect, and self-will. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

(1.) John 3: 25-30, King James Version (KJV): 25 Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying. 26 And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. 27 John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. 28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

(2.) Deuteronomy 13: 1-11, KJV: 1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. 5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee. 6 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; 7 Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; 8 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: 9 But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. 10 And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 11 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.

(3.) John 1: 11-17, KJV: 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) Hebrews 5: 1-10, KJV: 1 For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: 2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity. 3 And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. 4 And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron. 5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. 6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. 7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; 8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 10 Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
