Today, reply is on the Christian life process for the salvation of sinners as one of receiving divine substance for spiritual change and growth more than one of becoming acceptable to GOD by exercising human willpower, and maintaining obedience to sacred law. In the system of Christian beliefs, a relationship is to be in place whereby a sinner is acknowledged, justified, and permanently joined to the Creator through the character, eternal purpose, and righteousness of GOD, rather than on the basis of their own behavior and temporal works. Through Jesus Christ, error, sin, stubbornness, and wickedness are never justified; the blood of Jesus justifies commitment, forgiveness, growth, not giving up, reconciliation, repentance, and sanctification. It is written: Psalms 1: 1-6, King James Version (KJV): 1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Why is it common for catholics to sin during the week but then justify those sins by going to church on Sunday’s?

I’ve noticed that many catholics seem to think its ok to cheat on their wives, do drugs, drink heavily, molest children and so forth and then since they go to church on Sunday’s they think their behavior is justified. Why?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21: 6-8, King James Version, KJV)

Chris”, regular church attendance and becoming a follower of Jesus Christ does not justify sin, rather, a peculiar lifestyle having specific practices to turn away from sin are justified. Sinners who turn to GOD through Jesus Christ all must become “born again” (we say, experience rebirth), must “grow up again” as developing believers, and go on to become mature Christians. The sacred process may require a lifetime to complete, for a transformation must occur wherein spirit substance imparted from the makeup of GOD (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) increases its influence and power within the consciousness and self-will of the repentant believer.

Sin promotes the destruction of Creation, and a return to preexistence (i.e., the conditions in place before the founding of heaven and earth). Mankind must regard sin as an enigma, a puzzle that has no solution, and an influence whose operations may dominate awareness and self-will within created beings and living creatures. Sin has no divine origin; and is no spirit substance, or physical thing created by divinity. Even so, sin opposes the continued existence of divine law, the Lawgiver, and divine order throughout the universe. Because the presence and operations of sin appear as natural, normal, and a continuing aspect of life on the earth, most fail to correctly recognize and respond to sin as contrary to their own survival.

The church established by Jesus Christ has provided divine law, multiple descriptions of sin, and other devices that do not eliminate sin. Thus, sin may be rejected and resisted, yet, not removed. The most important gift from GOD that allows the living to turn from sin is the fresh endowment of spirit matter from the makeup of GOD that one may receive through baptism. Inseparable aspects of divine fullness are imparted to the living that include balance, faith, holiness, joy, hope, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Thereby, developing believers can respond to life challenges and “growing pains” while on the earth as sons and daughters of GOD who are not fully perfected, and who are being edified (built up) through discernment, discovery, gradual growth, fellowship with others who have sacred knowledge in place of secular knowledge, study of the holy writings, unselfish service, and suffering.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, Romans 8: 5-9, King James Version (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.

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. (Ezekiel 18: 20-24, King James Version, KJV)

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.

 …he beheld the city, and wept over it,  Luke 19:  41

 

Today, Jesus dying on the cross, and the temporal nature of death are considered.  While death has effect and presence, death appears as a condition (i.e., state of being) and mechanical life process that exists without person or self-will.  There is no conflict of flesh against divinity involved in the sacrificial observance where the Lamb of GOD is slain for the sin of the world.  The truth that GOD has always existed, and is without cause and origin requires acceptance that divinity may not be described as a result of specific purposes beyond those of being and existing, or manifesting as active presence.  The flow of carnal reason and finite mind are disrupted by this enigma of GOD.  Similarly, the character and properties for things that are material and social,  including mankind, must be known and spoken of using frameworks of time and space that permit concepts of duration, elimination, and termination.  GOD is not subject to death; death does not die of itself; however, death is subject to GOD, and may only continue through sacred law (the expressed will of GOD) and divine prerogative.  One of the many fighters at “Yahoo!

How would’ve God DIED on the cross if he’s ETERNAL?

Update:  One dying defeats the purpose of being eternal.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:  for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  (1st Corinthians 15:  50-57, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Redemption Through Ordinary Flesh? (04/20/2017); Dead While We Live? (02/02/2017); Divine Appearances Using Form? (12/20/2016); Divine Inheritance and Resurrection? (07/06/2016); The Dimensions of Death? (04/24/2016); The Cross a Human Sacrifice? (04/18/2016); GOD Known By Action Not Form? (03/18/2015)

 

“Anonymous”, life is GOD’s intent, death is GOD’s tool.  The revelation of GOD (i.e., the acts and deeds whereby divinity makes himself knowable, known and visible) includes appearing in carnal form (we say, flesh and blood; Incarnation), becoming an embodiment of sin that can be destroyed on the cross, putting forth cause for new hope, showing the extent of human potential for relationship with Deity as well as providing correct sacred knowledge of the character, nature, and substance of death.  Apart from the operations, processes, and eternal purposes of GOD, Death is not to be regarded as “almighty”, divine, or eternal.  Just as the holy angels are temporal (i.e., endure for a limited time), and exist as neither mortal nor immortal, Death is temporal, is neither mortal nor divine, and is not to be obeyed as though having higher divine authority than the true and living GOD.  As a function of Creation, death is to promote life, and serves as a condition of “sleep” that may be terminated through resurrection.  As a function of Salvation, death promotes new life through rebirth, and serves as a condition of release from sin.  Only as a function of correction that fulfills final Judgment is death a condition of annihilation, elimination or irreversible destruction (we say, the second death).  The operations of death at the cross may be understood as having been in accordance with the authority of natural law.  The operations of death at the tomb where Christ had been laid should be seen as in accordance with the authority of divine grace that oversees such features as being, healing, forgiving, imparting spirit content, resurrection, and translation.  Consider again the following:

(1.)  Romans 4:  13-17, King James Version (KJV):  13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.  14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:  15 Because the law worketh wrath:  for where no law is, there is no transgression.  16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,  17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

(2.)  Romans 5:  17-21, KJV:  17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)  18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.  19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.  20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:  21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

(3.)  Revelation 20:  12-15, KJV:  12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.  13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them:  and they were judged every man according to their works.  14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.  15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Isaiah 25:  8-9, KJV:  8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth:  for the LORD hath spoken it.  9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us:  this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
