Your Adversary

 

Today, reply is on comparing the energy, excitement, and vibrancy of Jesus Christ against that displayed by Satan. Divinity appeared among mankind using flesh and human form to demonstrate correct covenant relationship between the Creator and the created. Although Jesus was the Son of GOD serving as a spokesperson and representative of the Father in heaven, Jesus was meek and lowly while living on the earth, and is called “a man of sorrows” because he also fulfilled the role of heir to Adam, the Son of Man. Where Jesus provided a standard for humanity that embraced sacred law and continual praise of GOD, Satan appears as an Adversary to mankind promoting covetousness, deceit, pride, and rebellion. It is written: Isaiah 11: 1-5, King James Version (KJV): 1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

Why is it known that satan’s energy is more vibrant, colorful, and just better than Jeus’s energy?

When you look at that Lucky dog’s show on Adult Swim you can see the title screen and it says “666.” So this is a satan show. Technically. But the colors on that screen and the font and everything it just looks so good and feels like good genuine energy. When you look at the energy of Jesus themed things it’s so bland and like dull and thick and hard to take in. It’s kind of like poop I can’t deny. Why is Jesus reading like this and Satan reading like that. Is this part of the deception? Is the bright colorful genuine energy Jesus’s energy and vice versa? Please tell me the truth.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53: 1-6, KJV)

Anonymous”, developing and mature Christian believers do not encourage one another to compare the energy, process and substance of Jesus Christ, who must appear as a man, against that of Satan, who may appear as an angel. Satan is a created being that like mankind, is subject to the operations of sin that oppose the continued existence of sacred law and divine order. Sin has not been put forth from GOD, yet, may dominate consciousness and self-will (willpower) within the living. Sin promotes nonexistence, the end of all divine order, and a return to the condition of chaos, confusion, and flux that was in place before the founding of heaven and earth (we say, preexistence).

Divinity has appeared on the earth using human form as Jesus Christ to reveal otherwise invisible and unseen aspects of the divine fullness (we also say, the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). In addition to sacred law, created beings must respond to divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. Jesus must operate to display authentic humanity continuing in covenant relationship with GOD. Only as an embodiment of the life essence (we also say, breath; spirit; word) imparted from the Creator may mankind serve as a living companion to immortal, incorruptible divinity. Christian believers are to resemble, reflect, and reveal the image of GOD and the likeness of Jesus Christ within their lifestyles and daily routines. Inseparable aspects of the divine makeup must appear including balance, completeness, faith, holiness, integrity, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a praise presentation from prophets of the Christian faith who minister using music and dance, the Disciples of Mime, interpreting “Something About the Name of Jesus” from The Rance Allen Group featuring Kirk Franklin:

(1.) John 19: 1-6, King James Version (KJV): 1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. 2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, 3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands. 4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. 5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man! 6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

(2.) 2nd Corinthians 5: 1-7, KJV: 1 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. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4 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. 5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

(3.) 1st John 3: 4-8, KJV: 4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

(4.) 2nd Corinthians 11: 13-15, KJV: 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (5.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBifYYVW4y8.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on the visualization presented on the cross by divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) that uses human flesh and mortality to show the final destruction of sin within all created beings and living creatures. Redemption and salvation are not achieved by mankind through human effort and finite self-will (willpower). Only through an Incarnation of divinity, a lawful death on the cross, a resurrection that provides possibilities for a new creation, and a ceaseless unfolding of permanent covenant may forgiveness and reconciliation be established as genuine divine process and substance having power to release mankind from the transformation that resulted by Adam’s sin. There must be a divine response to the disruption of the material order that occurred throughout the universe, and a fresh declaration of sacred law through exchanges and interactions that may occur only within direct expressions of the divine accord. It is written: 1st Peter 3: 18, King James Version (KJV): 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: A fighter in the “Yahoo!

If you want to know what’s going to ultimately happen to the unsaved all you have to do is know how Jesus paid for OUR sins. HOW DID HE PAY?

Did Jesus suffer never-ending torment on OUR behalf when He ‘took our place’ on that cross. Think about it. What did Jesus DO? [People say it all the time – but few seem to hear it]

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel. The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. (Psalms 103: 2-14, KJV)

canadacraig”, Jesus Christ is a divine use of human flesh and form on the earth to complete operations carried out by the priesthood in heaven (e.g., atonement, mediation, sacrifice, sanctification). GOD is spirit; and the properties of spirit include being diffuse and fluid, being without measurable dimensions (e.g., height, length, weight), and being without fixed and permanent form that would be detectable using human senses (hearing, sight, smelling, touch). On the earth, the Creator has used multiple carnal, material, and social devices to embody and reveal the character, process and substance of divine fullness (we say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Thus, there are multiple events recorded in the holy writings wherein divinity is acknowledged as an unseen, yet, active presence. GOD has acted to make divinity knowable, known, accessible, and approachable to mankind by appearing and speaking using the form of a burning bush, hand-written tables of stone that manifest the express will of GOD, prophets and other human spokespersons as well as the Incarnation (i.e., being born from a woman as Jesus Christ). Rather than “what GOD looks like,” mankind has been directed to the image of GOD within aspects of personhood and value that include balance, faith, forbearance, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and sovereign will. The operations of sin oppose the continued existence of divine law, the Lawgiver, and the platforms for divine order. Sin promotes nonexistence and a return to the conditions in place before the founding of heaven and earth. Sin is no material object put forth by divinity, contains no spirit substance from the makeup of GOD, and has not been put forth by GOD. Even so, sin displays direction, effect, and “presence”; and sin may dominate awareness and self-will in the living. Ending the mortality of Jesus Christ on the cross is required to establish his humanity among mankind as having been authentic. More than this, Jesus dies on the cross as the embodiment of all sacrifice for sin, depicts the second death for final destruction of sin, and completes the revelation of authentic divinity among mankind. Consider the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Yolanda Adams:

(1.) John 9: 1-5, King James Version (KJV): 1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. 2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? 3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

(2.) 2nd Corinthians 5: 21, KJV: 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.

(3.) Hebrews 7: 24-28, KJV: 24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. 26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. 28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dq6mYhGyyT4.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on learning about the Greek philosopher Plato, and learning about what GOD has revealed and spoken concerning divinity. Secular knowledge and wisdom are expressions by created beings and living creatures that focus on such features as appetite (e.g., hunger, thirst, cravings for sexual contact), sensation, (e.g., hearing, seeing, tasting, touching), and emotion/mind (e.g., anger, fear, imagination, recall). Human philosophy and science attempt to describe material objects, life experience, and the physical world using finite, man-made tools for measurement and sharing information. Intellect, logic, and carnal reason are not sufficient to completely and correctly explain such elements as the origin, process, and substance for existence, life, and divine fullness that include faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. It is written: Isaiah 55: 7-11, King James Version (KJV): 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.

For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

Anonymous”, to learn of Plato, one may consult brittanica.com that reports, “Plato, (born 428/427 bce, Athens, Greece—died 348/347, Athens), ancient Greek philosopher, student of Socrates (c. 470–399 bce), teacher of Aristotle (384–322 bce), and founder of the Academy,”. At stanford.edu, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy one reads, “Plato (429?–347 B.C.E.) is, by any reckoning, one of the most dazzling writers in the Western literary tradition and one of the most penetrating,”; and .en.wikepedia.org states that “Plato was an Athenian philosopher during the Classical period in Ancient Greece…the Academy founded by Plato was the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.” To learn of divine fullness (Christian believers also may say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) look into the things shared by the ministry of Jesus, be alert to hear GOD himself as he has been recorded in the holy writings. The sacred operations of divinity on behalf of mankind include Creation, judgment, Incarnation, revelation, and salvation. Divinity has appeared on the earth using thousands of events, within thousands of lives, over the course of thousands of years. Men are to learn by sharing with one another their own discoveries, edification, praise, and testimonies that make GOD knowable, approachable, present and visible. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Bishop Walter Hawkins:

1. Exodus 3: 13-15, King James Version (KJV): 13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? 14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. 15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

2. Exodus 34: 6-8, KJV: 6 And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. 8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

3. Job 38: 1-11, KJV: 1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, 2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? 3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. 4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. 5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? 6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; 7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb? 9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it, 10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors, 11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?

4. Matthew 11: 28-30, KJV: 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

5. John 6: 41-48, KJV: 41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. 42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven? 43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. 46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. 47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. 48 I am that bread of life.

Today, reply is on a debate about abortions, and judging others for their choices and opinions. Christians are encouraged to rely on counsels, guidance, and instruction within the household of faith that are available as divine law, sacred principles, a fresh endowment of spirit substance from the makeup of divinity, and the holy writings. The man-made belief system that we call the world generates arguments, meanings, and quarrels along with standards and values that promote spiritual confusion, and that challenge and contradict Christian belief. The issue of abortion is more than one of correct medical practice, or private and public health. Many hold that a fetus (the unborn, developing organism within a female) is not a child; therefore, removing and destroying such organic material is no different than what we do with a cancer. Others understand that childbearing is more than a carnal and physical work of ones flesh; the fetus is established as having personhood through operations that occur within both parents long before birth that entail accountability, commitment and love with emotional, psychological, and spiritual imperatives that may not be dismissed or ignored. There are elements related to birth control, gender differences and disparities, political and social imbalance, and responding to unexpected and unwanted pregnancy. There are issues of freedom from the duties, responsibilities, pain, and unpleasantness of pregnancy. There are issues of adult independence; exercising the privilege and right of decision-making for ones own benefit; how best to fulfill ones sexual appetite; how to respond to life opportunities; and promoting oneself to profit in various social settings and situations. Those in covenant relationship with divinity, who willingly present themselves to GOD for unselfish service, raise no objection against being held accountable for works such as creating families and stable communities; displaying Christ-likeness and the image of GOD; holy matrimony; parenting; priesthood; and demonstrating lives dedicated and devoted to carrying out the will of GOD. Christian believers are granted the example of the Virgin Mary—who was called upon to serve as the mother of Jesus Christ. Mary had been raised set apart (sanctified) for divine service, yet, was despised because she was a childless woman. The angel Gabriel visited Mary as a sign that the things proclaimed, promised, and prophesied from GOD for Israel and for mankind would all appear, and become manifest. When it was announced that she would be a caretaker and mother, her response revealed a correct commitment and readiness to serve, and she acknowledged and proclaimed the name and works of GOD. It is written: Luke 1: 46-55, King James Version (KJV): 46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. 48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. 49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. 51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. 53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. 54 He hath helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; 55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

Is it Pro-choice or pro-abortion?

In religion class we we’re having a debate about abortion. Pro-life vs. Pro choice. Someone then decided to talk about a girl who was pregnant and decided to keep the baby because that was HER CHOICE. Now one of the people who claimed to be pro choice started asking questions as to why the girl decided to keep the baby. She said that the girl should’ve had an abortion. “Why put yourself through that ****?” And I was there thinking, “because it was her choice. Why are you judging her choice when you believe a woman should do whatever they like with their body?” Keep in mind this was not a thought that made me want to hate her. This was just a thought of realization. I just want my question to be answered so I understand a person’s beliefs. So I guess what I’m trying to ask, is someone that judges a girl for not getting an abortion still pro choice or is it pro abortion. I just want to understand. I’m sorry if I offended anyone, I just want to learn from you guys so I don’t question a person’s beliefs ever again on something like this.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. (Galatians 5: 16-26, KJV)

Anonymous”, here are some points you may find useful. Rather than focus on abortions and failed pregnancy (miscarriage, stillborn), the Scriptures provide accounts of miraculous birth, guidance regarding conditions and prenatal care for those born to become sacred servants of GOD as well as the “slaughter of innocents” by rulers who sought to maintain their political advantages by destroying every child that could have been sent from GOD. Many mature Christian believers think of their choice for Jesus Christ as their redeemer and savior as also having provided closure and resolution for multiple problems and questions pertaining to how created beings and living creatures should respond to one another, and how mankind should respond to divinity. The ideas and language to discuss “pro-abortion”, “pro-choice”, and “pro-life” are from the man-made world system developed for exchange, trade, and survival, and does not appear within the holy writings that speak to human reproduction, the divine process to populate the earth, the appearance of divinity using human form as Jesus Christ (we say, the Incarnation), and the present embodiment of sacred spirit within humanity. Because Christians choose to acknowledge the authority, dominion, and sovereignty of GOD, abortion is widely understood as a medical procedure to terminate pregnancy where specific health conditions are diagnosed and evaluated that are obstacles to continuing the child’s development within the mother, and to completing a natural birth of her child. Practice of abortions by those who are not licensed and registered with the government as properly trained medical professionals has been regarded as criminal. For their collective survival, governments must address the issues of communication, population growth, the availability and distribution of shared resources (debts, fees, fines, taxes, etc.), and the provision of clean air, water, medicines, and food necessary for healthy living, and for maintenance of their commonwealth. New life in Jesus Christ and citizenship within the kingdom of heaven are not through human reproduction, childbearing, and birth so much as through the resurrection of Christ. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible on the birth of Samson, and a selection from the music ministry of the Pro Musica Girl’s Choir from Hungary:

(1.) Judges 13: 6-14, King James Version (KJV): 6 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible: but I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name: 7 But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death. 8 Then Manoah intreated the LORD, and said, O my Lord, let the man of God which thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born. 9 And God hearkened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again unto the woman as she sat in the field: but Manoah her husband was not with her. 10 And the woman made haste, and ran, and shewed her husband, and said unto him, Behold, the man hath appeared unto me, that came unto me the other day. 11 And Manoah arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said unto him, Art thou the man that spakest unto the woman? And he said, I am. 12 And Manoah said, Now let thy words come to pass. How shall we order the child, and how shall we do unto him? 13 And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah, Of all that I said unto the woman let her beware. 14 She may not eat of any thing that cometh of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing: all that I commanded her let her observe.

(2.) Psalms 127: 3-4, KJV: 3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

(3.) 1st Timothy 2: 14-15, KJV: 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kV7l0uqOD_8.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, reply is on idol worship, the use of miniature crosses as memorials of the sacrificial death of Jesus, and the proper focus for doctrine and sacred knowledge among Christian believers. The desire to know divinity using the tools of flesh, intellect, imagination, and mind has often resulted in the adoption of material and physical objects to make divinity knowable, known, accessible, and approachable that were fashioned by mankind using resources provided from the earth. The actual provision of divinity has been the use of human flesh to display both authentic humanity and divinity (we say, Incarnation) as Jesus Christ. Neither abstract nor material objects permit exchange, interaction, and organic joining for the created and the Creator. Dagon of the Philistines emerged from the same error, presumption, and wickedness seen in Cain offering fruit on the altar, rather than blood from an innocent, and seen in the Golden Calf of Egypt provided by Jeroboam to the 10 tribes that were the Northern Kingdom (Israel; Samaria). It is written: Jeremiah 9: 23-24, King James Version (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.

Anonymous”, mankind must appear bearing the authority, image, and willpower of what, or whom he will worship—of a false god, or a true and living GOD. While Christian belief uses emblems, tokens, and symbols as tools for admonition, guidance, instruction and memorial, Christianity does not endorse the use of graven images, idols, and similitudes that are to be acknowledged as gods and divine persons having dominion, immortality, incorruptibility, and sovereign will. Those seeking to continue accusations, attacks, thrusts, and other distractions by condemning the use of simple things in worship (e.g., the chalice, the monstrance, the crucifix, the wafer) depart from correct Christian doctrine and teaching. The proper focus for a believer is that they express gratitude, praise, and reverence, rather than exalt outward appearances, miracles, and signs. Believers are to submit to operations of the Holy Spirit whereby men will exist as mature and ripe for harvest from the earth by the Lord at his appearing (the Advent; the Rapture; the Second Coming). Those “born again” are to “grow up again” renewing their content and endowment of sacred knowledge through such devices as accepting accountability; commitment; enduring “growing pains”; continuous discovery, learning, and study of the holy writings; fellowship within a community of believers; fulfillment of duty, sacrifice, and unselfish service; practicing discernment, praise, and prayer; and continuously rejoicing despite affliction, hardship, and suffering. Existing as divine fullness and the summation of all spirit substance GOD is invisible and may not be seen using finite animal senses, and human tools that detect carnal form and physical dimensions (e.g., depth, height, length, weight). Even so, created beings and living creatures are to communicate, exchange, and interact with GOD who is Creator, Maker, and Origin for all that exists, that have life, and that have detectable presence. GOD also has revealed themselves as the administrator of sacred law and divine order, eternal purpose, and the second death provided to permanently eliminate sin and its consequences. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Anthony Brown & Group therAPy:

1. Deuteronomy 29: 1-6, King James Version (KJV): 1 These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb. 2 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land; 3 The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles: 4 Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day. 5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot. 6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.

2. Jeremiah 5: 19-25, KJV: 19 And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth the LORD our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not your’s. 20 Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying, 21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not: 22 Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? 23 But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. 24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. 25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. 26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.

3. 2nd Peter 1: 2-10, 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:

Thou That Hearest Prayer

 

Today, reply is on the practice of prayer among divinity, and the mediators within the Godhead who intercede on behalf of Creation and mankind. Through the covenant with Moses, divinity agreed not to speak to mankind again using an audible voice, and to exchange and interact with mankind using spokespersons (prophets). Mankind shares many things with Deity, yet, may not appear before divine fullness (we also say, the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) as an equal, or as one having the same authority, dominion, glory, majesty, sacred knowledge, and sovereignty. Within the Godhead as well as on the earth, both Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit appear and intercede representing finite mankind. Sinners who have returned to GOD through the priesthood of Christ, who willingly serve the Lord, and who also await his coming, now are being examined in the on-going sacred judgment to grant eternal life, and are being provided with fresh endowments from GOD for their transformation to exist as the immortal companions of divinity. It is written: 1st John 2: 1-2, King James Version (KJV): 1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 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: 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. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 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; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Friend”, having authentic humanity, Jesus Christ prayed to divinity regarding his own sacred priesthood on the earth whereby the Savior confessed the sin of mankind, and of those who came to him; offered glory, praise and thanksgiving to GOD; and requested comfort, edification, guidance, and strength to complete his sacred mission. As the Son of the Father, Jesus Christ prayed to divinity being a mediator for mankind who also was using human flesh, and observing the limits posed through mortality that include mechanical and natural law. In accord with the atonement and propitiation for sin accomplished by Christ as a High Priest in heaven, the Holy Spirit also prays for mankind as a mediator who now operates through the inseparable aspects of divine fullness that are displayed by those belonging to Jesus Christ. Included are faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Among Christian believers prayer is made to accomplish various aspects of eternal purpose, and is not merely to express human emotions, or petition for the unmet needs of those in the flesh. Through prayer one displays their own divine content and indwelling spirit that has acceptance and oneness within the Godhead. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a presentation from the music ministry of John Michael Talbot:

1. Isaiah 55: 6-11, King James Version (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.

2. Hebrews 7: 24-27, KJV: 24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. 26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. 28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

3. Romans 8: 26-27, KJV: 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

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.
