Son of The Widow

The image depicts Jesus acknowledging the existence of a dead body, and providing life to the dead son of a widow as he was entering the city of Nain.

 

Today, reply is on the difference between “existence” and “life”. Where our focus is sacred knowledge, a full discussion of existence and life will include such topics as death, dying, mortality, and eternal life as well as the origin of mankind with the multiple objects located within time and space. It is written: John 1: 1-4, King James Version (KJV): 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Explain existing and living?Is there diference betwen the 2?If you are to chose between the 2 what category do you fall in existing living?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 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: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 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. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 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. (Colossians 1: 12-20, KJV)

Radette”, for many mature Christian believers, life may be described as a process and operations that are mechanical, natural, and spiritual. The differences between existence and life are seen proclaimed through the account of mankind’s creation. The form and material vessel that would serve as a physical body for Adam were conceived and fashioned within the heart and mind of divinity (i.e., first existed within GOD), and made to appear within frameworks, spheres of life, and multiple structures provided for flesh (e.g., consciousness, purpose, time & space, the earth). Adam was not yet alive, however, neither was he dead. He was first a “shell” to contain life essence (we say, breath; spirit; word) that would be imparted from the makeup and substance of divine fullness (we say, divinity; the Creator; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). Once the figure formed from the dust of the earth received the breath of life, Adam became a “living soul.” At that time, there were no “dead souls”, nor was there dying or mortality. Now, we know lifeless bodies may exist (we say, cadavers; corpses; the dead). Death was introduced as “sleep” in the creation of a mate for Adam that entailed removing one of his ribs. Also, death and mortality were established as limiting conditions for human existence through proclamation (we say, sanctions) within divine law (the expressed will of GOD). There are created beings and living creatures who are neither mortal as mankind, nor immortal. Only divinity is immortal and incorruptible—the duration and lifetime for angels, mankind, sacred beasts, or the elders appearing in heaven continue by operations of divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. All things that exist do not contain life displayed as the ability/capacity for appetite (e.g., hunger, thirst, cravings for sexual contact), for communication, for self-directed motion, for sensation (i.e., hearing, seeing, tasting, touching), or for operations of emotion/mind (e.g. anger, depression, fear, imagination, recall, sorrow). When speaking of the quality of human experience, some contrast “living” (where a person vigorously pursues their own interests with attitudes and behavior that are creative, exciting, and satisfying) against merely “existing” (where one endures boredom, interpersonal conflicts, and life struggles using conduct and routines that are cyclic, frustrating and repetitive). Others speak of life as having spirit content from GOD (we say, anointing; fellowship with divinity; an unction), and to exist is to be filled with spiritual confusion, doubt and uncertainty (i.e., to display the operations of death, sin and wickedness; to continually express bitterness and complaining; to live relying on patterns that are unfruitful and vain (i.e., lacking sacred substance). Without ongoing relationship with divinity, ones life is void (empty); however, with divinity in the life there will be abundance and plenty, yet, there also will be judgment. All Christians are to acknowledge that the operations of sin may dominate consciousness and self-will within the living; and sinners must become built-up and strengthened with the will of GOD. Where one becomes “born again” by receiving a fresh endowment of spirit content from GOD, they must “grow-up again,” and become mature/ripe for harvest by Jesus at his appearing (Advent; the Rapture; the Second Coming). Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and the presentation from the music ministry of Pastor Marvin Winans:

(1.) Ephesians 2: 1-6, King James Version (KJV): 1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

(2.) Jeremiah 4: 22-28, KJV: 22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. 23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. 24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. 25 I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. 26 I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. 27 For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end. 28 For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black; because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (3.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEdPHHVZNJg.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on worship as necessary to continue human existence and life. The living require ongoing relationship and uninterrupted contact with the Creator wherein their needs for health, nourishment, and increase of sacred content will be acknowledged and addressed. It is written: Psalms 43: 3-5, King James Version (KJV): 3 O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. 4 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God. 5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

What is the purpose of worshipping god?

Is it so you can go to heaven regardless of the situation your in, even if your in a bad situation and he doesnt help you. Or is it so god can help make your life better? What if a innocent young person was sentenced to death and he never gave his life to god, hell automatically go to hell?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth. Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously. Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth. (Psalms 96: 9-13, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Divine Fullness Is Spirit (09/11/2019); Decently And In Order (06/26/2019); Known By His Fruit (11/04/2018); Eternal Praise and Worship? (01/30/2018); Worship and the Cross (11/27/2017); In Spirit and Truth? (10/02/2017); Knowing the Invisible GOD (09/17/2017)

 

????”, the duration of existence and life within created beings and living creatures depend on their having contact with the origin and source of their process and substance. To exist as more than an abstraction or material object, and to experience freedom and an acceptable quality of life, the living must know GOD, and be known by GOD. Divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Creator; the Godhead; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) may be understood as a singular entity made up of all spirit matter that is. Inseparable aspects of divinity include balance, direction, faith, holiness, hope, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, purpose, righteousness, truth, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Therefore, for there to be meaningful communication, exchange and interaction between divinity and Creation that are uninterrupted by death or the operations of sin, mankind and other living creatures (e.g., animals, angels, sacred beasts of heaven) must contain deposits and endowments of life essence imparted from the makeup of GOD (we also say, breath; divine DNA; sacred “seed”; spirit; word). Mutual acknowledgment and ongoing relationship with GOD—who is immortal, immutable, ineffable, invisible, unchanging, and without dimension and measurable form—appear and are set forth through declarations of divine law, and fixed patterns, practices, principles, proclamations, and promises. Worship is the living display of sacred spirit abiding and indwelling those who willingly serve as eternal life companions with divinity. Judgment is the examination of records maintained by divinity (the book of life) that detail attitudes, conduct, spirit content, and responses to divinity shown by the living. Judgment will be carried out before the dead and the living undergo a final transformation to exist as immortal and incorruptible. The lake of fire (the second death) expressing the displeasure of divinity and wrath against sin will continue to burn until it no longer has fuel (i.e., until everything put in it is burned up, and even ashes and residue no longer exist). Thus, acceptable worship also includes confession, gratitude, humility, prayer, praise, rejoicing, repentance, sacrifice, service, sharing, silence, suffering, and waiting. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a presentation from the music ministry of the Winans with Donnie McClurkin:

(1.) Matthew 7: 18-23, King James Version (KJV): 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

(2.) Colossians 2: 8-15, KJV: 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; 15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example (3.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofyjNrai1fU) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on existence, life, and whether spirits of the dead actually exist. Mortality and death pertain to the state of the physical body more than to the influence of spirit on the process and substance of life. The deposit of spirit that operates as life within both Christians and sinners is understood as different from the spirit that appears as religion, or the imparted spirit from the makeup of GOD provided for rebirth and salvation in those becoming born again. While there is much disagreement among Christians regarding the place where ones life spirit is located or resides after leaving a physical body (e.g., limbo, purgatory, the place of torment), many nonetheless agree that ones spirit continues to exist, and will at some point re-occupy its own form (body). It is written: Romans 8: 22-23, King James Version (KJV): 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Does spirits of the dead really exist?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (for we walk by faith, not by sight.) (2nd Corinthians 5: 1-7, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Present With The Lord (08/05/2019); Death Used in Salvation (06/28/2019); Two Uses For Resurrection (05/01/2019); Challenged To Explain Resurrection (10/08/2018); The Comfort Through Christ? (01/13/2017); Signs From The Dead? (01/15/2017); Life Is GOD’s Intent (11/15/2016); Discovered Differences? (09/18/2015); Spirit, Spirit Beings, Spirit Persons? (10/13/2015)

 

Skittles”, here are some thoughts you may find helpful. Mature Christians do not acknowledge apparitions, ghosts, phantoms, and occult creatures. As a matter of their faith and full understanding, many agree that where life essence (we also say, breath; spirit; word) has been imparted from GOD to inhabit flesh and blood, a created being or creature is produced who displays consciousness, existence, and life. GOD must be joined with a material body for there to be “a living soul.” Material things may exist having neither consciousness nor life (e.g., a cardboard box; a corpse; a stone idol). Even so, all material things that exist occupy measurable amounts of space, and may register as a focus or object in the consciousness of the living.

Spirit can not be known completely and correctly, or manipulated using only such finite human tools as intellect, logic, sensation, recall, and thought. Spirit matter exists as unseen active presence; may display direction; and may of itself both concentrate and expand. The operations of Spirit become visible through its effects, and when Spirit embodies or uses multiple forms as vessels. Destroying a vessel that contains spirit matter does not always destroy its spirit content also. Because spirit substance is diffuse, immaterial, invisible, and immeasurable, many deny the existence of Spirit. In their error, they insist “spirit” has no authentic influence and power over the living.

Death is the completion of ones mortality; the loss of life; and the separation event where the spirit that allows the living to display direction, personhood, purpose, and self-will leaves the physical body. To comfort survivors of bereavement, mankind continues to use many diverse explanations and traditions that promote the continued existence of ones spirit, and therefore, possibilities for their life to be renewed and restored. Divine judgment requires resurrection of the dead, for all who appear before divinity must be alive. Consider again the following found among Christians that use language from the Bible:

1. Ecclesiastes 3: 18-22, King James Version (KJV): 18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. 19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. 20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. 21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? 22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?

2. Ecclesiastes 12: 1-7, KJV: 1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; 2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain: 3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, 4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low; 5 Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets: 6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. 7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 3. Revelation 20: 4-6, KJV: 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on heaven and earth as the creation of GOD, and the world as a man-made system for life and survival on the earth. A fighter in the “Yahoo!

Why do people blame the way the world is on Satan and Adam and Eve when God is the creator?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. (Isaiah 45: 18-19, King James Version, KJV)

(10/17/2017); Blame, Sin and Salvation? (02/13/2017); The Origin of Sin? (07/31/2015)

 

Zepplin”, sacred truth must be known through things that are set apart by GOD such as doctrine, prophecy, and vision. Among mature Christian believers, GOD is the Maker of heaven and earth, while the world has been created as a system for exchange and survival by the created beings and living creatures that were fashioned in the image of GOD. Divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) is the Creator and origin of all things that pertain to the existence, operation and possibilities of divine spirit including the order that describes the physical universe and spheres of life, personhood, eternal purpose, sacred substance, and diverse forms of acknowledgment, interaction and worship. Accountability, dominion, and ownership within the world that obscures and warps the image of GOD are traceable to Adam, Eve and Satan, who together responded to the operations of sin. In the same way focus on the letter of divine law rather than its spirit continues the knowledge of sin, the condition of mortality also hinders the realization of eternal life by those who have been created.

Sin is an enigma containing no divine substance, having no discrete physical form, and has not been put forth by GOD. Even so, sin may dominate consciousness and self-will (willpower) within created beings and living creatures. The operations of sin oppose the continued existence of divine law, the Lawgiver, and all the standards for meaning, quality and value generated by GOD. Sin promotes chaos, flux, and the streaming of motion without direction and form, we say, a return to preexistence, and the conditions in place before the founding of heaven and earth.

The finite tools provided to the living (e.g., appetite; emotion; intellect; logic; philosophy; carnal reason; science) allow for creative and imaginative operations of mind that focus on things immaterial and invisible, yet, do not permit a full and correct articulation of divine spirit (we say, breath; life essence; word). To apprehend, commune, and interact with divinity, the living must contain inseparable aspects of sacred substance imparted from the makeup of GOD. Through Jesus Christ, mankind receives a fresh endowment of divine seed, and will exist as the new creation. Included are balance; faith; forbearance; holiness; longsuffering; lovingkindness; oneness without sameness; wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Isaiah 51: 11-15, King James Version (KJV): 11 Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.12 I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; 13 And forgettest the LORD thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor? 14 The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail. 15 But I am the LORD thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The LORD of hosts is his name.

2. John 4: 23-24, KJV: 23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

3. Revelation 14: 6-7, KJV: 6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. Revelation 14: 14-16, KJV: 14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Christ For Ever

 

Today, reply is using the frameworks of time and space to apprehend Jesus Christ, who ministered on earth as flesh, and continues to minster from heaven through Spirit. Since ancient times, divinity has shown themselves to be knowable to created beings and living creatures. The things that were important yesterday are also important today because they were provided as eternal, spirit in their focus and substance, timeless, and always endured with power to manifest meaning and value. As truth, the promises and prophecy from GOD do not change or fade; however, among created being and living creatures, acceptance, agreement, and understanding of these things will change because of discovery, aging, the continuance of revelation with the occurrence of additional sacred events, gradual growth, and our becoming emotionally, psychologically and spiritually mature. It is written: 1st Corinthians 13: 9-12, King James Version (KJV): 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

(04/22/2013); The Divine Use of a Human Life? (04/23/2013)

 

jane”, the point of contact between GOD and mankind is always to be I AM; here and now are superfluous. Many mature Christian believers read the verse you have shared (Hebrews 13: 8, King James Version (KJV): 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever.) as a description of Jesus Christ that acknowledges natural, mechanical and physical features for divinity embodied in human flesh, and that uses the measurable frameworks of time and space, rather than focuses on the Savior’s immeasurable sacred content, process, and presence. Without divine order that includes sacred law, precepts, principles, standards and values, there can be no time or space. Sin that opposes the continued existence of divine law, the Lawgiver, and the platforms of Creation (heaven and earth) promotes its own destruction, and fosters a return to the conditions in place before the universe was established (we say, preexistence marked by chaos, confusion, flux, and uninterrupted motion without direction).

Mankind is to communicate, exist, exchange and interact with immortal, incorruptible divinity as a life companion. The living must undergo permanent changes and a transformation of life essence (we say, breath; spirit; word) through operations of the Holy Spirit that are divinely managed and structured. Thus, in water baptism, the inborn spirit dies, is buried, and is resurrected from the dead (so to speak). The repenting sinner is “born again” having seed from GOD (divine DNA); must “grow up again” while living on the earth; and must become mature/ripe/stable for harvest by Christ at his appearing.

Developing believers will display inseparable, unchanging aspects of divine fullness such as balance, faith, gratitude, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. The fresh endowment of these elements permit the believer to interface and be merged with Christ having oneness without sameness. The active presence and immutable truth who becomes visible through Jesus Christ is discerned without time and space through the devices of divine prerogative (we say, grace), divine law, eternal purpose, unselfish service, suffering, and the sovereign will of GOD. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Malachi 3: 5-7, King James Version (KJV): 5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts. 6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

2. 2nd Corinthians 5: 16-21, KJV: 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 3. 1st Corinthians 15: 50-54, KJV: 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 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. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 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.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Be Still and Know

 

Today, reply is on whether “believing” there is GOD is a matter of acknowledging a broad range of attributes and characteristics (e.g., authority, ethnicity, faith, lovingkindness, personhood, power, race) that require meaningful human responses, or is a simple act of definition for a common object in the life of mankind. According to Christian beliefs, as an emanation from divinity and a creation of GOD, the completeness, integrity, and quality of human existence and life for mankind should vary as a function of divine prerogative, sacred law, eternal purpose, and sovereign will. Thus, it is written: Malachi 1: 6-10, King James Version (KJV): 6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name? 7 Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the LORD is contemptible. 8 And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil? offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts. 9 And now, I pray you, beseech God that he will be gracious unto us: this hath been by your means: will he regard your persons? saith the LORD of hosts. 10 Who is there even among you that would shut the doors for nought? neither do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand. The fighter in the “Yahoo!

Believing in God means more than simply acknowledging His existence. Agree or Disagree?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts? And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered. Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not. (Malachi 3: 13-18, King James Version, KJV)

(03/06/2018); The Meaning of Worship? (07/09/2014); To Serve GOD Acceptably (07/10/2014)

 

Wisecracker”, correctly understood, many take “believing” in GOD to be only an emotional, intellectual, and mental process. In fact, however, acknowledging and responding to GOD are operations that depend on spirit process and substance. Where a person thoughtfully reflects on divinity (we also say, divine fullness; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) as being more than another physical object like themselves that definitely has existence, and might also have life, the method and process to make an accurate and complete consideration involves posing multiple questions, pursuing patterns of logical connection, and organizing all the data one may collect to provide a clear presentation of ones process and findings. Academic descriptions, information about “the gods” and reports on their activities will be very different from those presentations shared as priestly sacraments, revelation, and utterances from divinity to maintain communication, exchange, and interaction with mankind.

For many, Christianity has been the most challenging belief system that shares the thoughts and words from divinity to make divine fullness knowable, known, accessible, and approachable. Included have been divine law; covenant relationship; and the appearance of GOD through thousands of events, within thousands of lives, over the course of thousands of years. While divinity ordinarily exists as inseparable spirit substance (e.g., faith, holiness, forbearance, forgiveness, gratitude, humility, personhood, oneness without sameness, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin), divinity also has appeared on the earth as Jesus Christ using the forms and operations of human flesh (we say, the Incarnation).

The character, process, and substance of divinity is Spirit; therefore, GOD is held to be boundless, limitless, and without measurable dimensions. More than this, GOD is the origin for all that exists, for order throughout the universe as well as for all that have life. In Christian belief, it is possible for created beings and living creatures that have consciousness and self-will to receive benefits and privileges sharing relationships with GOD that become possible through spirit substance imparted from the makeup of GOD, divine law, sacred promises, prophecy, eternal purpose, and the sovereignty of GOD. Through devices such as Incarnation, the use of anointed spokespersons (we say, prophets, kings, apostles), the establishment of governments and nations, and the founding of a church on the earth, the existence of GOD is experienced as that of a sentient being who determines multiple aspects of human duration and survival. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Hebrews 11: 6, King James Version (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.

2. 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. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

3. Hosea 6: 5-7, KJV: 5 Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth. 6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. 7 But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. Jeremiah 9: 23-24, KJV: 23 Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

flesh-vs-spirit

 

Today, the reply acknowledges that the embodiment within mankind of inseparable spirit substance from the makeup of GOD is greater evidence for the existence of GOD than the displays of authority and wealth, of natural wonders (e.g., lakes, mountains, rivers), of weather events (e.g., blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes), or of phenomena in the physical world (e.g., lightning, thunder, wildfire). It is written: 1st Corinthians 2: 7-11, King James Version (KJV): 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Human Self is inbuilt fabric of God,So Pharoah confused,I am God,River Nile flow by my command, Are we not Evidence of Existence of God?

Update: ” I am in your individuality, but you do not observe” (51:21)Quran.

Update 2: it is Human mastered world and universe in Google and Hubble not Monkey, We are more similar to God than Monkey,

Update 3: Evolution Theory is invalid on the following reasons

1. Time is illusion A relative standard (Einstein) Evolution is based on time, thus Evolution is illusion,Invalid

2,Gender is a barrier, species are pairs(male female) evolution in pairs unthinkable. New species after Human will be male or female ?

3. H2o remained unaffected by Time,Time will not change number of electronsTime fails as a cause of eternal change,

omar”, what many regard as the excellence of Christianity as a belief system describing the origins of existence and life is its focus upon spirit process and substance that includes divine prerogative, eternal purpose, sacred law, and the sovereign will of divinity. Human efforts to avoid mysticism, superstition, and the occult have resulted in the use of various finite tools to address the character and nature of life such as intellect, logic, philosophy, politics, and science. With those tools, focus is primarily on things carnal, material, measurable, mechanical, natural, and social.

Men may serve as living vessels of divine substance. Christians identify the Creator as the first source of life essence (we also say, breath; spirit; word) and personhood. The divine endowment is different from the conditions, inheritance, and traits provided through sexual reproduction by the first male and female (Adam). Awareness and self-will (willpower) within created beings and living creatures may be dominated by the operations of sin. Mortality, spiritual confusion, and continuing as susceptible to the operations of sin became a life challenge, and condition for all the children of man. Through the appearance of divine fullness using human flesh as Jesus Christ, mankind now may receive a fresh deposit of inseparable spirit matter from the makeup of GOD. Included are balance, faith, forbearance, gratitude, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

During the time of famine, the Egyptian people became the private property of the Pharaohs, for they sold their own land, their livestock, and themselves to their ruler in order to survive. Idolatry, secular knowledge in place of sacred knowledge, and abuses of authority and dominion from GOD (i.e., government) within the one-world empire became widespread. The people became blind to the self-destruction and complete ruin of mankind that then overshadowed them. For Christians, commitment and faith that operate as the condemnation of sin, impartial judgment, salvation, and rebirth have become the evidence of the true and living GOD continuing to be active within his Creation. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Romans 1: 16-23, King James Version (KJV): 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 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.

2. 2nd Peter 1: 2-11, KJV: 2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 3. Romans 8: 4-9, KJV: 4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 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.
