HIDING-BEHIND-A-TREE, hiding

The image depicts the error of Adam and Eve hiding from GOD in the Garden of Eden.

 

Today, reply is on the first human pair (Adam), gender, and human reproduction. At their creation, Adam was like the angels, neither mortal nor immortal, and had duration as an expression of divine prerogative (only GOD exists as immortal). The practice and process of human sexuality when focused according to divine intent centers on the reproduction of mankind as a material organism created by GOD that displays the properties of both flesh and spirit. Through sexual intercourse, joining, and the fertilization of the female seed, a child having life essence from GOD can be formed who will display characteristics and traits from both their male and female parent. It is written: Genesis 1: 27-28, King James Version (KJV): 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

what do you think about the creation of adam and eve?

at the time we were discussing mortal and venial sin in religion class when my teacher asked for examples of these sins. my classmate, stood up and said homosexuality. my teacher told him that homosexuality isn’t a sin, and my classmate cannot argue with the fact that adam was made a man and eve was made a woman, therefore there are only two sexes. teacher told us that we cannot claim that they are man and woman because they were immortal, and so they have no gender whatsoever. opinions?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. (Revelation 5: 6-14, KJV)

Anonymous”, existence and life are expressions of divine will. There are only two sexes that appear through the Creation of GOD, yet, there are many expressions of human sexuality generated by self-will within mankind, and the operations of flesh. Mature Christian believers do not rely on academic and secular discussions of Creation, the character and nature of mankind, or the operations and process of sin. There are multiple definitions, meanings, standards and values that should be in place that are aspects of sacred knowledge, only. For example, GOD is a spirit who appears to created beings and living creatures as active presence. The living mistakenly use finite human tools (e.g., intellect; language; logic; science) that understate the awesome dominion, personhood, and sovereignty of the divine fullness (we also say, Deity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Divinity may exist within the consciousness and self-will (willpower) of the living while remaining diffuse (we also say, limitless; without material form and measurable boundaries; outside the frameworks of time and space). Divinity endures as immortal, incorruptible, and invisible, and has made themselves knowable, known, accessible, and approachable. The operations of sin oppose the continued existence of sacred law, the Lawgiver, and the entire universe appearing through divine order. Sin is a transgression of sacred law that results in imbalance (iniquity), and the corruption of all divine order throughout the universe. The first pair (GOD called them both Adam) were deliberately male and female to populate the Garden of Eden through sexual joining in a manner similar to what was to be used among the animals. Eternal purpose and gender roles were in place at the time of Adam’s transgression; and disobedience by the pair resulted in the loss of life essence (i.e., breath; spirit; word) that had been imparted from the makeup of GOD. The divine sanctions for correction and punishment that were declared and stated as aspects of the law as first given to mankind included continuing as subject to death (i.e., mortality; the state of sleep endured by the male while the female was fashioned from one of his ribs). Visible results from the transgression of Adam include a gradual erosion of mankind’s endowment of spirit substance that resulted in exaggerations of appetite (e.g., hunger, thirst, sexual cravings), sensation (e.g., hearing, seeing, tasting, touching), and the features of emotion/mind (e.g., anger, fear, imagination, recall). Through the ministry on earth of divinity appearing in flesh (we say, the Incarnation), Jesus Christ has established a new creation providing forgiveness for sin, a reconciliation of the Father to mankind, and new life for those in flesh by means of the resurrection of Christ. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(1.) 1st Timothy 2: 13-15, King James Version (KJV): 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 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.

(2.) Romans 5: 17-19, KJV: 17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

(3.) Romans 8: 5-9, KJV: 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMPENVk1AG4.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Covered By His Righteousness

A depiction of a sinner being covered by the righteousness of Christ.

 

Today, reply is on how the holy writings declare that all have sinned, yet, there are some who are called “the righteous.” There is no contradiction or error, here. The children and descendants of Adam (the male and female created by GOD) all inherit the label of “sinner” and the condition of mortality. The living complete a span of life by fulfilling an obligation to experience their own death. All have been made subject to death through the sanctions against transgression that were proclaimed at Creation along with the divine law. Divinity did make allowances for mankind to display godliness by obedience to divine law and by partnership in a perpetual covenant, however, human efforts and finite self-will (willpower) could not manifest the necessary inner substance for the complete recovery of mankinds character and nature. Jesus Christ has appeared on the earth using human flesh and process to establish consecrated possibilities for mankind to be accounted as righteous, to be released from condemnation for sin, to exist permanently as the new creation, and to escape the irreversible punishment for sin (the second death). Mankind is to acknowledge the righteousness of GOD appearing through the life and ministry of Jesus serving as a divine High Priest on the earth. In addition to atonement, forgiveness, mercy and reconciliation, Christ embodies otherwise inaccessible grace, justification, eternal purpose, and sanctification. It is written: Philippians 3: 7-10, King James Version (KJV): 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; A fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion & Spirituality using the ID “potato” (Level 2 with 303 points) posted the following:

 

If all humans are sinners, why does the Bible make a distinction between sinners and the righteous?

Psalm 1:5 – “Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.”

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid. For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. (Galatians 2: 16-21, KJV)

(08/20/2019)

 

potato”, sin can not be eliminated through human efforts and imperfect obedience to sacred law. Even so, the righteousness of GOD may appear within men as faith and other spirit substance. Among Christian believers, only where sinners become joined to Christ, and begin to manifest Jesus in their lifestyles and daily routines are they spoken of as “the righteous.” Mankind may be understood as continuing to exist in spite of sin through multiple operations of divinity that express the unchanging character, purpose, and substance of divine fullness (we also say, Deity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Adam (the first pair) became subject to the sanctions that were stated as a further aspect of the revelation provided to fit them for companionship with GOD who is immortal, incorruptible, and invisible. The “law” proclaimed that death (we say, mortality; sleep; the second death) would result by disobedience, yet, did not explain that humanity is to display the image of GOD that only appears by the exchange and interaction of the inseparable aspects of “life essence” (breath; spirit; word) imparted from the makeup of GOD. Included are balance, faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Divinity did not alter or annul the divine law. To continue and fulfill the consecrated intent expressed in the Creation, divinity has provided atonement, correction, covenant, forgiveness, Incarnation (divinity using human flesh and process to appear as Jesus Christ), priesthood, promise, prophecy, resurrection from death, and many other sacred operations. By acts of GOD, mankind is released from the condemnation to exist as sinners that resulted when Adam violated their relationship with the Creator. The operations of sin oppose the continued existence of divine law, the Lawgiver, and the universe produced by divine order. Sin promotes nonexistence, and a return to the conditions of chaos, confusion, and flux that were in place before the founding of heaven and earth (we say, preexistence). Sin may dominate consciousness and self-will (willpower) in created beings and living creatures; yet, sin cannot influence or manipulate the sovereign will of GOD. Salvation from sin and eternal relationship as a companion to divinity are accomplished by GOD as the living acknowledge they are being transformed to exist as vessels of divine DNA (so to speak), joint-heirs with Christ, and “the new creation.” Believers are to resemble, reflect, and reveal the character and likeness of Jesus Christ. The Savior himself is the most complete and correct appearance of the renewed righteousness that must be found within mankind. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(1.) Romans 5: 18-19, King James Version (KJV): 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

(2.) Romans 6: 3-11, KJV: 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: 9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. 10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(3.) Romans 1-9, KJV: 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 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.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (4.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ge1axMPsN-g.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

The Children of Men

 

Today, reply is on GOD’s use of mankind to perform the sanctions against sin that are proclaimed through divine law. GOD promised Abraham that, following a sojourn among the Egyptians, the Patriarch’s descendants would someday occupy Canaan. The seven tribes that first occupied Canaan were to be totally destroyed because of their betrayal, rebellion, and sin. The Amalekites also were among the tribes that opposed the occupation of Canaan by those who left Egypt under Moses to become the new covenant partners with GOD. In the judgment of GOD, evil and wickedness are not determined by gender; and the wickedness of children and females can be as great and greater than that of adult males. As the instrument of GOD, men are not only appointed officers of the divine court to carry out judgment on the earth (i.e., executioners), mankind is also the expression of consecrated balance, comfort, grace, impartial justice, mercy, and righteousness. It is written: Romans 13: 1-4, King James Version (KJV): 1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

Why did God command humans to wipe out the Amalekites, rather than just do it himself?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley. And Saul said unto the Kenites, Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt. So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites. And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur, that is over against Egypt. (1st Samuel 15: 5-7, KJV)

Anonymous”, mankind is not merely a divine creation to populate and serve as a caretaker for the earth. Mankind is to exist as a divine instrument and sacred tool that makes otherwise immortal, incorruptible, unseen divinity known, “visible”, and approachable. Mankind displays the image of GOD, and is to resemble, reflect, and reveal the character and likeness of Jesus Christ. Through humanity there are expressions of divine fullness (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) that include sacred dominion, active presence, divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. The divine order and sacred law required for balance and stability of the universe must be acknowledged, carried out, and observed by mankind. The work of eliminating the operations of sin can not be accomplished through the finite tools of mankind such as intellect, logic, philosophy, carnal reason, science, and self-will (human willpower). The operations of GOD must appear that include atonement, correction, death, forgiveness, judgment, mercy, rebirth, resurrection, and the second death. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Steve Amerson:

(2.) Lamentations 3: 39-45, KJV: 39 Wherefore doth a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins? 40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD. 41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens. 42 We have transgressed and have rebelled: thou hast not pardoned. 43 Thou hast covered with anger, and persecuted us: thou hast slain, thou hast not pitied. 44 Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that our prayer should not pass through. 45 Thou hast made us as the offscouring and refuse in the midst of the people.

Sentence of Death

 

Today, reply is on mankinds need for fixed carnal, material, social, and spiritual boundaries set by divinity that include government, law, judgment, and death. Many forward-looking statements have been provided from divinity to guide and instruct the living that are in the form of verbal utterances and not legislation. Included are cautions, covenants, proclamations, prohibitions, prophecies, promises, sacred law, and testimony. It is written: Galatians 5: 19-23, KJV: 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 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. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Christian Question?

Why are some Christians against the death penalty when the Bible seems to spell it very clear in terms of society?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living. I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: I said in my haste, All men are liars. What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. (Psalms 116: 9-15, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Eternal Judgment With Mercy (11/19/2019); The Perfection Of Divinity (09/17/2019); The Penalty of Death? (04/26/2019); Sacred Judges and Laws? (01/23/2017); The Death Penalty? (10/08/2015); The Death Penalty for Sins? (11/30/2014); A Dispensation To Benefit (12/01/2014)

 

Anonymous”, many do not understand (and properly respect) the guidance that comes to Christian believers regarding the divine use of death that expresses wrath against sin. In the holy writings, death first appears as a tool used by divine fullness (we say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) during Creation. The male who was formed using substance from the earth also received life essence (breath; spirit; word) imparted from the makeup of GOD. The new relationship of Creator and the created required that mankind have ability to communicate; have coherence, completeness and self-will (willpower); have a consciousness of divinity that would be ongoing and uninterrupted; and that man would resemble, reflect, and reveal the character and nature of GOD to all other beings in existence. The creation of a female, who would be formed using blood and bone taken from the male, required that he “sleep” (i.e., endure death) throughout the necessary operations of GOD.

Death as mortality and separation from the living was introduced as a sanction within the law(s) provided for government of heaven and earth, and were presented to Adam (the divine name for the first pair) in the form of admonition and warning, rather than ordinances and statutes. The authority and power over the universe (we say, dominion; ownership; rule) exercised by GOD, who is immortal, invisible and incorruptible, are to be perpetual and unchanging. The sanctions were forward-looking statements to describe consequences for acknowledgment or transgression of agreements, commandments, covenants, rules, and standards that express divine expectation, prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD. Consequences and results proclaimed through the statement of law therefore include examination of the living for their content of substance imparted from divinity; the loss of dominion by mankind; the loss of fellowship with divinity; the loss of sacred attributes by mankind; and the second death.

Sin has not been created or put forth by divinity; sin opposes the continued existence of divine order and sacred law, the Lawgiver, and the platforms of creation; and sin has no divine content or sacred substance. Even so, sin may dominate awareness and self-will within the living. Sin promotes nonexistence and return to the conditions of chaos, confusion, and streams of substance lacking direction (we say, preexistence) that were in place before GOD imposed divine order. Where the living become corrupted by the operations of sin, no longer respond to divine will, and can not be recovered through fresh endowments of inseparable spirit content from the makeup of GOD, they display iniquity (are incorrigible), and they must be eliminated permanently from the divine presence. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a selection from the music ministry of Hezekiah Walker:

(1.) Genesis 9: 5-7, King James Version (KJV): 5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. 6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man. 7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

(2.) Deuteronomy 21: 18-21, KJV: 18 If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: 19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; 20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. 21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

(3.) Genesis 18: 20-28, KJV: 20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; 21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. 22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. 23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? 24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? 25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? 26 And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. 27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the LORD, which am but dust and ashes: 28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

(4.) Romans 8: 5-9, KJV: 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

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

Abrahams Inheritance

 

Today, reply responds to a presentation made by Danny Danon, Israel’s Ambassador to the Security Council of the United Nations, April 29, 2019, on the “divine deed” of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. The benefits and privileges of divine inheritance must be apprehended through sacred process and spiritual discernment, rather than cultural, legal, geopolitical, and social frameworks. In accordance with national economies and financial procedures, deeds and documents that record purchases and transfers of real property (land) and chattel (material goods) are acknowledged and registered by governments for purposes of allotments and taxation. Deeds also pertain to debts and agreements for payment (we say, transaction fees, loans, mortgages). Abraham’s purchase of a field at Machpelah for a possession and a burying place occurred before an assembly within an open forum at Mamre, and was therefore in such a framework of public witness, procedures, and standards. Abraham’s receipt of the land of Canaan was by inheritance and through a framework of promises made to Adam and Eve whereby the seed of the woman eventually would prevail. Those insisting that the lawful framework for buying and selling must be maintained when considering the status of modern Israel, rather than that for faith and continued interaction with divinity, also are obliged to observe all the other commands, principles, and sanctions that are aspects of the same law. Similarly, those standing on the foundation of ongoing relationship with divinity must acknowledge the full range of promises, prophecies, spirit process, and spirit substance. There should be no switching between frameworks. Maturity is only displayed through accountability, commitment, consistency, integrity and stability. Thus, we are reminded: James 2: 10-11, King James Version (KJV): 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. A fighter in the “Yahoo!

Israel belongs to the Jews — given by God?

Israel’s Ambassador Takes Out Bible at UN to Prove Jewish People’s Claim to Israel

Emily Jones (May 1, 2019)

“The Qur’an itself accepts the divine deed of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.” -Danny Danon, Israel’s US Ambassador

(New York, NY) — [CBN News] Israel’s UN ambassador Danny Danon used the Bible to defend the Jewish people’s claim to the land of Israel during a special session at the United Nations Security Council on Monday. (Image: Screengrab-AP/via CBN News)

Danon was tasked with the job of proving the case for Jews’ connection to the Holy Land during the session. He outlined four reasons, “the Bible, history, international law, and the pursuit of international peace and security.”

In a dramatic moment, Danon opened the Bible and read aloud God’s covenant with Abraham from Genesis 17: “And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout the generations for an everlasting covenant. And I will give to you and your descendants after you all the land of Canaan for an everlasting possession and I will be their God.”

Danon then raised up the Bible, turned to attendees and said, “This is the deed to our land.”

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.  But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. (James 2: 19-24, King James Version, KJV)

Anonymous”, Abraham was the “Friend of God” where Moses was a covenant partner. Here are some points from the Bible that developing Christian believers are careful to examine when seeking to correctly understand mankind’s dominion over the earth, relationship to divinity through divine utterance (e.g., proclamation; promise; prophecy), and the authority of sacred records. It was not a secular system, or geopolitical economy wherein the transactions between GOD and Abraham occurred. While there were exchanges that compare to issuing promissory notes, the lawful transfer of goods and property through inheritance, and conduct to acknowledge covenant relationship (e.g., circumcision) and mutual obligation, all was anchored in operations of divinity to impart spirit substance from the makeup of GOD that included faith, hope, joy, knowledge, trust, and vision. The establishment and fulfillment of the early covenants are also on record as historical events; yet, there are many subtle points that are often overlooked. It is written:

1. Genesis 18: 18-19, King James Version (KJV): 18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? 19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

2. Genesis 15: 18, KJV: 18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

3. Acts 7: 1-8, KJV: 1 Then said the high priest, Are these things so? 2 And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran, 3 And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee. 4 Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell. 5 And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child. 6 And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years. 7 And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place. 8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.

4. Romans 4: 13-15, KJV: 13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: 15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. 16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 5. Galatians 3: 16-18, KJV: 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Today, the reply is on Christ-likeness, lawful process, the image of GOD, and other requirements from divinity that pertain to eliminating evil and wickedness. The fighter in the “Yahoo!

If people are made wicked and evil by the devil, why didn’t god just kill the devil instead of murdering the entire world population?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (Matthew 25: 41-46, King James Version, KJV)

Pat C.”, here are some ideas that many developing and mature Christian believers are willing to examine that speak to divinity killing created beings and living creatures as a solution to remove evil, sin, and wickedness:

1. Given that divinity is immortal and immutable, the character, makeup, process and substance for many elements within the divine Creation of heaven and earth display completeness, duration, integrity, permanence, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD.

2. While there are angels, sacred beasts, and men existing in heaven who have been resurrected or translated from the earth that are not mortal and who display personhood and self-will, only GOD displays divine fullness, and is everlasting and immortal. Inseparable aspects of spirit content are to appear as Christ-likeness and the image of GOD. Included are balance, faith, forbearance, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, restraint, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

3. Both death (the completion or finish of ones mortality) and the second death (annihilation) are incurred as a sanction of divine law used to acknowledge the presence or lack of sacred substances (we say, breath, life essence, spirit, word) imparted from the makeup of GOD that are required for the living to communicate, exchange and interact with divinity in ongoing relationships (we say, to exist as life companions with GOD).

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. Devils may not be killed or lose their endowment of consciousness and will; and they are neither mortal nor immortal. Even so, they endure at the discretion of divinity, and may be utterly destroyed using holy fire that make visible otherwise unseen divine order, dominion, and final judgment.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

judgement

A depiction of judgment and salvation; only those having life may appear in divine tribunal

 

Today, reply is on mortality, divine law, and the completion of divine judgment. Mature believers are to consider that the final judgment we speak of is already being carried out and is ongoing. Those who will meet the Lord in the air at his coming to harvest the earth now are appearing before GOD through the books of life. Others (we say, the unrighteous; the unjust; the wicked) will be examined in living tribunal that follows their resurrection. For many, it has been proclaimed in prophecy that death (the finish of life; the completion of mortality) will be followed by their completion of existence (the second death). A fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion and Spirituality, who uses the ID “Anonymous” (no profile is shown) posted the following:

 

Christians, why does God punish people “after” they die?

FACT — It’s too late after they die to repent.

FACT — They can’t reform because they are now in Hell.

FACT — They can’t go to Heaven because they didn’t repent.

So Christians, what’s the specific reason why God is punishing these people after they leave Earth?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. (2nd Corinthians 5: 10, King James Version, KJV)

(06/13/2018); The Elimination of Death? (05/13/2018); On Law and Sin (06/07/2017)

 

Anonymous”, the language we use while we are sinners who promote the ideas of our culture and society speaks in terms of “punishment” by GOD for sin; however, the language developing believers are to use in the church as followers of Jesus Christ speaks in terms of being granted correction from GOD; divinity continuing eternal purpose; divine fullness (we also say, the GODhead) performing multiple sacred acts and responses (e.g., atonement; death of ones inborn Adamic spirit; rebirth from divine seed; the completion of mortality through resurrection and judgment that occur in the physical presence of GOD; the provision of eternal life). Here are some points that may help you realize the understanding among those who are to become Christlike by acknowledging sacred law, practice, and process that are to be shared by those who are the new creation of Jesus Christ:

1. Mankind was created to serve as a companion to GOD who is immortal, incorruptible, and invisible. The earth also was created as a sphere of life along with a range of active operations for mankind (e.g., aging; discovery; growth; learning; work), and the resources to ensure duration.

2. Just as GOD must present personhood, and be knowable, known, accessible and approachable, divinity must manifest righteousness, and establish his own word as a reliable, unchanging standard for communication, exchange and sacred relationship. Thus, despite the interruption that occurs because of death, Deity must complete the response to the sanctions within the divine law that were proclaimed to the first pair (Adam).

3. The law spoken by the Creator while interacting with Adam (we also say, shared through personal relationship; demonstrated and expressed as the authority, prerogative, and sovereign will of GOD; revealed) included admonition and warnings of consequences, and unwanted, yet, unavoidable events that would follow their disobedience. Included were death, destruction, and Adam’s loss of dominion over the earth.

4. By submitting his consciousness and self-will to the operations of sin, Adam became deprived, emptied, and unable through self-will to recover his divine substance from the makeup of GOD that always was to serve as his own life essence (we say, breath; spirit; word). Included were faith, holiness, integrity, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (5.) In the operations of GOD, the end of a person’s physical life is not the end of their full existence. Just as divinity has put forth the angels to exist being neither mortal nor immortal, divinity has begun a transformation of mankind to exist as an immortal companion to divinity that will be completed when Jesus Christ appears to harvest his followers from the earth (we say, his appearing, the Advent, the Rapture, the Second Coming). Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
