      A believer’s place within Divine Person, “I AM” as the name of GOD, and getting free of spiritual confusion are topics, today. Also, there is more on kindness to Mary. The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “Republican catholic” (Level 1 with 0 points, a member since March 14, 2012) posted the following:

THE BATTLE AXE: A Kindness to Mary? (04/21/2013)—(5.) In the same way respect to Jesus does not diminish or reduce the glory and honor to Almighty GOD and the Holy Spirit, and continues a believer’s acknowledgment of the authority and sovereign majesty of the Father, respect to Mary as the mother of Jesus does not conflict with or undermine ones faith in Christ, and takes nothing away from the glory of the GODhead. Typically, believers do not have complete and correct knowledge of sacred truth embracing Mary until they have made careful and detailed study. There are many subtle connections that must harmonize among the doctrines, the Gospel, and other teachings that are put forth; however, they all stand upon a single foundation, Jesus as the One Sent. (6.) In the public forum, many share their faith, or gospel (good news) thinking that every opinion is acceptable. They are surprised to find that even faith and “good news” must pass muster, and are evaluated and ranked according to fixed judgments that have been developed over many years, and tested within many cultures. Saying this another way: No childish insults, underdeveloped thinking, spiritual confusion, or vain rant may pass as benefit to others, comfort, encouragement, help, humility, kindness, mature insight, love, prophecy, religious belief, righteousness, understanding, or godly wisdom. (7.) From before the birth of Jesus there have been those who accuse Mary of prostitution, and question the virgin birth in order to justify their belief that GOD has not been righteous in covenant, has not fulfilled prophecy, and has not appeared in flesh. There were those who attacked Jesus to his face with those very slanders, and so we count it as “ancient evil.” Like many today, they sought to participate in a conversation regarding divinity that would be grounded only in carnal, material and social truth without also considering what GOD would speak about himself, his sacred operations, and his own divine purposes. Neither the things that offend GOD, nor the things that please him can be known and recognized by those who lack the holy spirit of life from GOD that should reside in every created being and living creature. One of the most distinctive features of mature faith is a reluctance to attack others, and a continuing restraint in dealing with errors and thrusts from those who are still developing. Mistakenly regarded as acceptance and approval of sin, it is an appearance of the peace that passes understanding. See 1st Timothy 6: 3-8, King James Version. (8.) Mature Christian believers obey a discipline that goes a long way toward eliminating gossip, slander and unkindness: Say nothing about anyone, even to GOD, that you can not say to their face. Where what you say will not benefit those you speak about, let it remain unsaid; and, do not talk about others, talk to them.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 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. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. (John 17: 17-23, King James Version)

     Here are some points to consider that many have found helpful when getting free of spiritual confusion, and the destructive habit of bending spoons:

(1.) The phrase “I AM” appears in the holy writings to suggest the enormous breadth, depth and impact of divine existence upon created beings and living creatures. As a holy name whereby GOD is known and spoken of in the earth, casual use of “I am” is avoided. This is particularly so where a believer embraces covenant relationship with GOD, and the divine commandments to prohibit taking or using the name of GOD in vain displays.

(2.) The profound truth that GOD inhabits Creation cannot be correctly applied and understood apart from the ongoing operations of Divine Person deposited within the living as their anointing, or endowment. GOD is a spirit, and must be acknowledged through spirit substance and truth. Included are faith, holiness, humility, hope, joy, longsuffering, love, wisdom and wrath against sin.

(3.) Clear standards for recognition of divine presence, sacred purpose, and eternal judgment have all been “published” and made accessible in the earth along with an incarnate example of glory, obedience and reverence, Jesus Christ. Divine law, proclamations, promises, and prophesies have been given such that there should be “no question” when identifying what is, and what is not, holy intent. See 1st John 5: 17, 2nd John 1: 9-11 and 1st John 4: 6-8, KJV.

      There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) When the word of GOD continues to have a controlling influence within a person’s awareness, Christ is said to abide within. The believer in Christ has place within the fullness of GOD, who is spirit; and GOD, who is spirit, has more than merely a place as co-existing. By eternal union of Creator, created, and universe, the living become expressions of Divine Person and instruments of divine will, rather than their own self-will and the self-will of others.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

      Faith, the purity of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and condemnation are topics, today. Also, there is more on the “way out” to escape eternal life. A “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “James” (Level 1 with 98 points, December 13, 2012) posted the following:

Was the “virgin mary” really just the town whore?

This would explain why she claimed “god” got her pregnant (which is 100% not possible unless god is human) since she didn’t know who really got her pregnant.

NOTE: Christians, yes, I know you’ll condemn me to hell.. YAY!

THE BATTLE AXE: What’s The Way Out? (04/20/2013)—(5.) The immutable, unstoppable act of GOD to eliminate corruption and mortality that was begun in ages past, absolutely must be completed and fulfilled on the earth and in the heaven. Many shrink away from eternal life with Jesus Christ because it is their faith that believers also will have to continually endure the fulfillment of prophecy, and witness the suffering of others in punishment. Theirs is another gospel, different from that of the Savior, who proclaims the end of all agony, divine displeasure, testing, and sin. See Revelation 15, KJV. (6.) It’s been said, You can’t lie your way into the Kingdom of GOD, you can only lie your way out. The blessings of eternal life may be refused both through practice of spiritual behavior and conduct that is unfaithful as well as through offenses that are unlawful. Those who deliberately and willfully break the divine law commit iniquity. Others operate as lawless by their attitudes and informal practices (e.g., faithlessness, unbelief). In addition to defiance, disobedience and offenses against divine law, such features as deceit, cowardice, ingratitude, infidelity, lying, obstinacy, pride, stinginess, stubbornness, lack of zeal, and witchcraft identify those having no endowment of divine substance through Jesus Christ, and reveals those having made a choice to reject covenant relationship, eternal life, and divine righteousness. Such human traits and weaknesses are accounted as being no different than sin, the transgression of divine law. See 1st John 1: 3-10, 1st John 5: 17 and Revelation 21: 7-9, KJV. (7.) Both those that refuse the mark of GOD, and those that willingly accept the mark of the beast will lose their portion in the eternal life of GOD. All will be sealed for identification, and for judgment; thereafter, ones spirit content and status in sacred relationship cannot be altered, or changed. Nothing may be added or introduced; nothing may be removed and taken away. See Luke 8: 11-12, Revelation 14: 9-12 and Revelation 22: 11-12, King James Version.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. (Luke 1: 26-33, KJV)

      James, in a certain sense it does not matter who Mary was, what you believe about her, and your faith in GOD is uppermost. What you have asked, and how you have asked it, allows us to see who you truly are. Please consider the following points:

(1.) Like many of the girls you may have dated, Mary was young, unsure of herself, and seeking to make herself unattractive to the kind of man who would seek to exploit her as a sexual victim. As a mere teen, she continued in the poverty of a child (no employment, no income, no savings), and she was regarded with contempt as a female who had not born her first child. 
(2.) Where men promote themselves as pimps, players, and whoremongers, they generally express a great deal of anger and bitterness against all women, their own mothers and grandmothers included. In communities where the positive acceptance and social status of a female is only through the achievements of their male partners (e.g., as homemakers, mothers to their children, wives), many women seek emotional and financial independence through prostitution. Lying is a natural tool in their response to male aggression.

(3.) The birth of Mary is spoken of as an immaculate conception (not the birth of Jesus), through the operation of the Holy Spirit. Her childhood and upbringing are recorded in the holy writings as having prepared her for the service she was to do for GOD, and mankind. Her title as “Virgin” is also through the operation of GOD, for she was the mother of Jesus and his siblings.

      There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) One is not condemned to hell simply because they do not have “all knowledge.” Created beings and living creatures are condemned only by exalting their ignorance of the true teachings from GOD; ignoring admonition, correction, and warning; persisting in blasphemy and disrespect, as well as by growing in the hardness of heart that stands as unbelief.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
