Today, reply is on the process of GOD for mankind, eternal purpose, and the instruction of Jesus Christ on human tragedies. Ones salvation is a spiritual condition that is to remain unaltered despite changes in their material, physical and social circumstances, and conditions. Divinity and the operations of sacred law are not the cause or origin for every observable event appearing on the earth. Many occurrences are the result of exchanges and interactions among created beings, living creatures, and material objects displaying as patterns and regularities in accordance with mechanical and natural law, rather than on the basis of obeying the will of GOD. Thus, believers are to understand that the recent mass shooting within a house of worship in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA) was not carried out in accordance with divine law, at the command and direction of GOD, as a punishment and verdict of divine judgment, or through the operations of the Holy Spirit. The blessings of GOD can not be annulled, diminished, or eliminated merely through the workings of created beings and living creatures who pursue ignorance, self-will, violence, and wickedness.

Why didn’t God protect the Jews yesterday?

Update: Or was God not there at all?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: 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. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (Romans 8: 5-10, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, the holy writings report that on one occasion, Jesus was asked and responded to a similar question. His reply at that time, coupled with other scriptures, show us that the process of divinity for mankind insists there be accountability, autonomy, integrity, and mortality among all those living on the earth, and throughout all Creation. This is consistent and in agreement with mankind having authority over himself and dominion while yet on the earth, and that men be subject to their own errors, faults, and infirmities as well as subject to chance occurrence (we say, accidents). While Jesus did perform healing and miracles during the course of his ministry among the Jews, the higher focus of his work included atonement for the sin of Adam and all mankind; bestowing and imparting sacred gifts through the Holy Spirit; correcting errors of doctrine among the Jews that resulted from man-made customs and traditions being respected as though they were also the dictates of divine law; the fulfillment of obligations to divine law through the workings of faith and righteousness; continuing covenant relationship between divinity and mankind through the sacrifice of holy blood as well as completing full works of judgment, resurrection from the dead, salvation, and the second death. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

(1.) Luke 13: 1-5, King James Version (KJV): 1 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? 3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. 4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

(2.) Ecclesiastes 9: 10-12, KJV: 10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. 11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. 12 For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (3.) Psalms 115: 12-18, KJV: 12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. 13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great. 14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children. 15 Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth. 16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men. 17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence. 18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, accountability, duty, and the nonnegotiable standards for relationship with GOD are in view.  Where created beings and living creatures demonstrate awareness and self-will they also have standing with divinity as more than abstractions, simple objects, and unspecified items.  The living contribute to sacred events and eternal purposes as well as to the character and nature of human events.  Given they “compete” for attention and spirit resources from GOD, the living are assessed and assigned value in accordance with responsiveness to sacred law, divine order, and standards for spirit existence that are put forth by the Creator.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

If someone dies in a car accident, is that god calling them home? If so, why prosecute the drunk driver?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats.  Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet?  And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet.  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle.  Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till ye have scattered them abroad;  Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.  And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.  And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.  And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land:  and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.  And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.  And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.  (Ezekiel 34:  17-27, King James Version, KJV)

“Spectreskeptic”, in the same way personal relationship with divinity is complex and rich because it requires multiple aspects of communication and exchange (e.g., confession, petition, praise, prayer, silence, thanksgiving, truth), and mature love is never simple for it always requires accountability, commitment, restraint, and unselfish sacrifice, the final judgment of GOD is more complex and difficult than created beings and living creatures are equipped to comprehend and carry out apart from divinity.  Multiple elements that are hidden and unseen contribute to visible events and occurrences as causes, influences, origins, triggers, etc.  In accordance with published law and standards, weight must be assigned without bias and partiality (we say, judgment must be made) to each contributing factor as well as to the soundness of information (e.g., complaints, eyewitness accounts, sworn testimony) documenting actions taken by the persons involved, changes produced, consequences, and effects.  (As with the holy writings, various accounts do not have to be exactly the same, yet, must agree, fit together and affirm or corroborate one another).  For divine judgment, focus is less upon attitudes, behavior, and conduct that are driven by aspects of “the flesh,” and emphasis is more upon discerning the presence of inseparable spirit matter from the makeup of Deity.  Included should be balance, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, meekness, stability, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  Deeds and works will be examined as indicators of awareness, sacred knowledge, and expressions of self-will distinct from spirit makeup.  Consider again the following principles of divine judgment from the Bible:

(1.)   John 7:  24, King James Version (KJV):  24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

(2.)  Matthew 12:  35-37, KJV:  35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things:  and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.  36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.  37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

(3.)  Romans 8:  13-17, KJV:  13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die:  but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.  14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.  16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:  17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Matthew 18:  6-8, KJV:  6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.  7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!  8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee:  it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
