See the Kingdom

Today, reply is made to clarify how the holy writings are made clear and meaningful only by ones spirit content imparted from divinity.  The truth of GOD presented as scripture is to complement and further build up the divine content within created beings and living creatures.  So to speak, the word may not grow and thrive thrust under heaps of secular and worldly matter.  The revealed truth must be planted in holy ground, placed within a living environment of breath, consciousness, eternal purpose, and will imparted from GOD.  A fighter in the “Yahoo!

The Word of God?

ive been reading the word of god for years…. i just done feel like its having much of an effect on me… but why?

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.  When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.  But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;  Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while:  for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.  He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.  But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.  (Matthew 13:  18-23, King James Version, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Secular History, Sacred Revelation? (01/11/2018); Flesh As Divine Vessels? (01/14/2018); In Order To Understand (12/01/2017); Wisdom In A Mystery (11/22/2017); The Word of GOD (09/05/2017); One Complete Divine Revelation (07/09/2017); The Two-edged Sword (01/09/2017)

“Tyler Sotock”, the process of GOD for salvation by study of  the holy writings is little different than that by hearing of the word preached.  Merely seeing or hearing (operations of the flesh) are not enough to accomplish the sacred joining whereby one internalizes the Word as ones own consciousness, divine seed, and imparted spirit that is to be continually nourished and watered by divinity.  Those who rely on the techniques and information from academic and secular study of the Scriptures often gain a wealth of historical data and insights for literary analysis of the Bible; however, few achieve the necessary commitment, discernment, humility, repentance, respect, and reverence needed to acknowledge divine forgiveness, reconciliation, and genuine consecrated mastery (i.e., eternal life; sacred priesthood through Jesus Christ).

Just as what we inhale must have the lungs as a container, a context, and area where the oxygen and other gases are collected, the word of GOD provided to mankind (we also say, breath, life essence, spirit) also is fitted into a context and a sphere whereby the active presence of Deity becomes known and “visible”.  The word is to reside among the inseparable aspects of divine fullness that exist as the makeup of GOD imparted to created beings and living creatures.  Included are faith, forbearance, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, purity, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

Sinners who become “born again” must also “grow up again” enduring “growing pains,” and meeting life challenges.  Developing believers are to become mature/ripe for harvest by the Lord at his return (we say, Advent, his appearing, the Rapture, the Second Coming).  Spiritual growth comes through multiple streams such as discovery, gradual growth, fellowship with believers who are more mature (e.g., clergy, ones own parents, those who prophesy as music ministers), permanent change, praise, sacrifice, suffering, unselfish service, and continuing worship.  Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

(1.)  Galatians 6:  6-10, King James Version (KJV):  6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.  7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked:  for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.  9 And let us not be weary in well doing:  for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.  10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

(2.)  Romans 10:  1-4, KJV:  1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.  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.

(3.)  Hebrews 4:  2, KJV:  2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them:  but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

(4.)  John 3:  1-8, KJV:  1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God:  for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.  3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?  5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth:  so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

There is far more to be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (5.)  2nd Timothy 3:  1-7, 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.  6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,  7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
