WE'RE SAVED BY JESUS CHRIST, HIS WORK AND EXPERIENCE AND OUR FAITH.

I and others have observed in intervention from Abba Daddy God that in life given it's adventure for eternal life someday consummated if I accept Christ and be saved, because my life is exposed and "laid bare before Him with Whom we have to do," Hebrews says in ch. 3. He wants our attention! Signs along the road of life show us God is love! HE IS FOR US! He has another side to Himself which is goodness. We can believe He is good like in: 'crazy good' in being possibly, positively, and humanely opportune in us for His Holy Will to be accomplished and for His ways & His Kingdom to prosper and this is well and good. He wants us saved and aware He is Holy and on a Highway of Holiness, His Gift of Holy and a destiny in heaven. Man's plan will end in destruction at least for now for in corruption we're birthed. For death is sin's wages. All around, that fact can be added as evidence. Bible says, "there is a way seemed right to a man and the end of it is death." There is a time for death once and then judgment but you can have the knowledge (of Christ's Holy Blood applied to you) of sacrifice that your sins are judged at the Cross of Calvary and you can have pardon now if you open the door to Christ. You can pray without ceasing and pray in the will of God with the Holy Spirit's help in Christ. Or if not and you "do it your way" after you're dead have them (your sins) judged fail to enter Heaven do not pass go nor go on to play Monopoly. See the grace to be saved? If in this life your sins are judged at Calvary by getting salvation this side of eternity you will have an eternal inheritance undefiled that fades not away in a better place, heaven as well. No 'O.K. Corral' or 'Jesus face,' on please, nor any poker face for this is truth 'without wax,' (without makeup.) The big trick of the Satan is make you think he doesn't exist. He doesn't want to party with you. He wants victims. He was judged, but just his sentance has not been carried out yet. Christ takes away sin. We're accountable for light. In fact, these eternal glimpse Spiritual wooings of God's glory, in fact the Dating God does of us, literally the out-rays of His love for us He's revealing to us are working for us as Christians (in name and for a few, far more of our minds: character too,) an unseen underspoken eternal weight of glory worth far more in features and exceeding value than in every circumstance outwardly dissapointing or purposefully leading though unjust (but useful) suffering we endure in God and is true no matter how we're pressed (Greek: thillipsis) our squeezing in path and how we experience life. We rejoice in the glory of God however. We glory in the glory. We let this mind which was in Christ Jesus be in us! We joy in that mindset! rejoicing in tribulations, however, too, give thanks to Him in everything, and acknowledge Him in all our ways, trust Him, and take the faith-trust to receive the salvation He offers with all our whole hearts like a childlike child weaned would trust an adult parent. Jesus last words were, "It is finished." It's justified from the Cross works, (greek Tetelestai: to finished completion) that to the undershepherd the work of salvation is Done and that the Finished Works He accomplished will show up all along our way in us in His Work Miraculous of the Holy Spirit's Presence within and on our countenances. We say, "the Lord is my helper," and, "our conduit to the Holy Spirit is open all the way," and after considering the matter, "we've let it go from a one inch pipe to a five inch." We will then be ready to be cradled into heaven by Him someday at death or the Rapture whichever comes first or in other words ushered in by Him while we're obeying in the present and following Him in surrendered obedience to the end at death to Heaven or at the Rapture ready, whichever comes first for, "Absent from the body is present with the Lord," Scripture says. In accepting Jesus and a radical salvation, He, by spiritual transferance gives you a newness of life brand new abundant, forgiveness, new heart, and new spirit. He grafts us Gentile sinners into an olive branch that gets regular sap or juice, the root of David or lineage David came from, Jesus Christ. Hearing the word of perseverance to the end, adopted, and regenerated sons and daughters of His you belong to Him and are showing you're possessed of a hope IN HIM more and more steadfast! God says, "all creation is eagerly (waiting) hoping on hippity-hoppity tip toe anticipating with inexpressable joy the adoption of the sons of God to happen even for the redemption of our bodies. For all the universe in natural creation shall be liberated in a manner similiar to like the children of God's special revelation liberty someday:" (See Bible verses on the Kingdom of God in the New Millenium, in Psalms, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hoseah, Zechariah, etc. and Romans 8:17-27.) But you need salvation to be a part. You need to become a butterfly. You, born in sin, a sinner, need to become a chrysalis or cocoon first. You get your feet wet and ask God to reveal Himself to YOU.
Christianity is not a list of do's and don'ts. You put up a sign, "keep out," and the surest way to not keep people out is say, "don't." You put up a sign, "wet paint," and people will touch it. The most the laws of the Old Covenant did was to rule and strengthen us for sinning. It doesn't empower you to obey the law. It doesn't strengthen you to obey the law. 613 laws and all kinds of human traditions wrapped around it: 613 ways to fail God laid out in intimate detail and we blew it. Even the one rule in the beginning in Genesis we blew it. Letters of the law and rules can never ever create a life that is God's. Yeah. Because its only based on fear. Its only based on failure. You want to run your life on what it shouldn't do and you will fail. Try running a marriage on what you should and should not do on a contract. Won't work very long. Written: It's a relationship. And if you haven't figured it out yet what works one day with your spouse won't work the next: Because we always want something new. So does God by the way. How about that! Learn to keep room for God's Voice and spontaneity. This paragraph is from my Pastor.
A concerted effort is here to bring to the forefront a great church<--click
(Now with the podcasts of Church Services.)
(The "abide in Christ" test.)
God is Love! God wants you! We love Him because He first loved us and for that we're greatly benefited by being hidden with Christ in God forgiven much specificly forgiven everything before salvation if we believe Him: take the faith in Him to be a part, involve your belief in God's salvation by getting 'into His boat.' Israel believed in the future he, Messiah would come. They look forward, we look back. About Our Savior Jesus Then We Read In The Bible: The Gentiles were grafted in to the one Olive Tree; The enmity was abolished through Christ: Now we see through a glass darkly, pictures of salvation all around us and the reality is (in Jesus) the Living Word:
Jesus was name called, meaning it was put upon him unjustly, to be named, "the friend of sinners," "a glutton, a winebibber," " a likeable fellow," because He ate and drank with sinners but knew God through and through and as His all in all and as He spoke knowingly WITH AUTHORITY, did the work (ergon in Greek) of God, and yet loved (infamous, sinners like us) but didn't engage in their/our sinful acts or sin as principle. Jesus knowing He came from the Father and was returning to Him did as He always had lived, "He took a towel and girded Himself to serve." He is the Great Teacher And Physician, Eternal Savior (descriptions of His acts and title) and He pleased God perfectly. Not only did He please God but He obeyed God the Father so much so that He in addition was declared to be the very God by men and by angels. Greatest man in History, Jesus, had no servants, yet they called him Master, had no degree, yet they called him Teacher, had no medicines, yet they called him Healer, had no army, yet kings feared him, won no military battles, yet he conquered the world, committed no crime, yet they crucified Him...He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today................He is the Reason For The Season !!!. Jesus Christ who was crucified for the sin of mankind who became sin at the Cross to pay to God the Ransom for our own sin in particular has won the victory. He was without sin and human and lived a high priest in things pertaining to God in everything with perfect judgment and Life: His Holy Nature expressed He, our Savior, 100% God 100% man. His godly prerogatives to do His own thing He gave up from doing (with the Father and Holy Spirit's help) to with significant help and sustenance liberate man from the oppression of sin, living 33 1/2 years on the planet. Wherever He laid His head down as home & traveled there was light and that light was most precious light. Where sin abounded grace did much more, and abounded as Jesus Christ obeyed to a t a sinful humanity's Death on the Cross and determined beforehand to explain to His twelve that was His purpose. He saw the goal and His point in time (importance of action in significance) and did it. The Father working alongside while the Spirit did the work also of signs, wonders, and miracles was through God. And when considering WHETHER He is Lord, liar, or lunatic if you read the Gospels as clearly as we do you begin to estimate in a decision to be open about it, for God to reveal Himself in a firm judgment of character to believe and envision that He's the genuine McCoy, the real deal: the God-man by what He says, and is, and by the failure of those around Him, in other words in an anti-inflammatory sense: those to fail in their mission from Jesus: (they failed before the Cross in weakness, by frustration) but after the Resurrection of Christ by fifty days the Holy Spirit fell enabling them to greatly boldly proclaim results and produce (faith) evidence of things hoped for. Then you have to decide too rather than sit on the fence. Isn't it right to believe He is Lord and Master over sin and its effects! He is our Savior from sin! He even said to top it all off, "If you can't believe, believe on the basis of the works." And what lovely altogether beneficial Godly works, "I do!" Jesus says. He never spoke out against anybody in an untrue way. The people said of Him, "He does all things well." "He makes both the blind to see and the deaf to hear." "He raises the dead." "To the poor the Gospel, preached," Luke 4:19. He was as gentle as gentle mice, but inwardly He knew all men & what was in men and lived a situation at all times therefore quick in God's fear around Him, to redeem out every situation never trusting what was in man. He is a True Witness and also He is Faithful. He was genuinely mighty inside like Moses was and more so in overall honor (Hebrews says, "as a builder of a house has more honor than the house" and "as a son," rather than the servant Moses was, a servant.) But He exhausted Satan's tactics so very mightily, constantly, consistently, faithfully, dynamically entrusting slamming the Adversary overcoming the world, the flesh, and the devil, and his hordes in this life in deliverance, to obeying God in reliance as a savory aroma (not just rote obeying,) but with Charismata Dunamus (charisma and dynamite.) He wasn't self-reliant on Himself but had absolute trust in the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit to do the Works of God (Grk. Ergon,) & God works through personality so often. By the Spirit indeed through grace He obeyed the Father God and God filled His life and ways high up and greatly in miracles and small miracles too also from God Most High full and with the Spirit, and Power, & therefore He was declared VERY GOD AND SAVORY TOO, (even through every obstacle AND through even when it got tough.) His word planted in men's hearts as it does perform that for which it is sent, conflicts as many a time the Word of God's plan (the Logos) does vs. man's agenda Isaiah 55:11. He burst forward toward the Cross. He had a Godly "Aroma" as they say in the Greek Dialect, (a Charismata.) "He FRAGRANCED smelled of good deeds." He passed every trial every test and staggering well.
Jesus, being a servant in all aspects to us in everything also said, "If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto Me." This He said speaking of His Atoning Death on Calvary and Risen Exalted Life, His glorification and ascension to the Kingdom of God Heavenly Throne up above where that it resulted in sins taken away. He said, "the Kingdom of God is come near," therefore repent, change your mind and attitude and amend your conducts from the inside out. It's from the inside out our heart cries out loud cries and tears therefore God must use other people to build our edifice from the outside by the way. His life, Death, and Resurrection show His Divine power (like controlled dynamite) over the Universe in creative acts of Creation and Re-creation in saving us being efficacious or effectual. He could have called twelve legions of angels to take Him down from that Cross and save Him on that day put by men but He hung up on the cross. He didn't flinch from the doing of God's will. He rarely mentioned His Death without adding also He would Rise from Death which is a proof of His DIVINE Existence. Christ literally BECAME sin for us and suffered the pain it cost of our remediation or redemption on the Cross. Every sin we will ever commit from the past, into the future, and even the present was forgiven when in an eternity of eternities He experiencing the wrath of God by sinful humanity hanging Him in pain on the Cross for you and I and come out the other side Risen. His Death couldn't hold Him down and victory over sin and for sin in reconciling us back to God by His Resurrection is become our justification: OUR victory over sin, death, and hell, and the grave (and peace with God now,) at the Rapture later, resulting in our purposing to be glorifying HIM now in joy. We're witnessing unto our Lord of God's saving grace. It was a great tremendous victory of the cross and the empty tomb though from an outward perspective as well. He meekly came to earth a Preacher of righteousness of right relationship to God in zeal, was sent by God our Father to come faithful by grace and truth and of His fullness we all partake of grace. But He came a fervent servant the first time and we didn't recognize Him. But it was to be the overthrow of the Holy Spirit over His in control of His heart and His life at every minute and turn and by exchange to our lives too if we submit in submission to Him once for all at salvation and body dedication the rest of life. John the Baptist was a forerunner of Messiah a disciple/preacher close at His heels to introduce personal and cooporate revival in Christ. Jesus Christ called God His Father and accepted man's worship having made Himself equal with God, and in kenosis: His self-emptying He thought being like God not something to be grasped but obeyed God humbly giving out vehement cries and tears while He lived in communing with the Father reverently in the flesh. Even a release to an eventual release of spirit up to God of Himself, a Death on the Cross, He forgave (we knew it not.) This was His testimony of His inner perfection with God found vindicated with God. His act of laying His life down willingly for us in Crucifixion Death is the demonstraton of God's love personally personified to each person potentially effectual to save them from a life of wandering sin (which Jude says results in blackness of darkness of fires of hell, a warning) (for those who constantly reject God's love to finally obtain salvation) of which I am pleading and explaining is some impetus to be saved the 'basis for our evangelical faith for getting saved & believing.' Scripture says, "No greater love has any man, than he that lays down His life for his friends," and Jesus said. Jesus calls us His own in the dramatic present, *"and no longer do I call you servants but I call you *friends." He said, "For I tell you what I'm doing." He's not our Lord until we make Him Lord and never our buddy. And through intimacy He's there inside. He's not our homeboy neither but has over 100 titles in the New Covenant where we honor Him. He said, "I have power to take it up (my life) and power to lay it down," from above, (The Father being from above and Christ speaking of His life and Death and "became alive.") So then that His Blood spilt in fact was effectual for us as life changing truth and if even one drop of it fell to the ground it was sufficient to buy us from our sins and keep us on the road of hope is truth. This is in verity. The proof of Christianity is changed lives, overcoming lives. What are we doing? and with His Blood? The Blood of Jesus Christ saves us from sin. God's Plan through His Son was for the Trinity to work in cohesive fashion and in tandem and save mankind. God's Holiness called for justice and God sent His Son to show us mercy we could relate to consummating in God's Righteous Lamb Slain. The Father planned, the Son bled and died, and the Spirit carried it out through to God. Christ was the Father's only Begotten Son sent and shown as an Innocent Righteous Holy Lamb to die for the sins of all mankind, even for the many who will accept Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Ransom or bridge to God for them. But the gate is small and the way, narrow, the Bible says. The Christ, through the Spirit, exogenerated (without creation nor generation) and so came forth from the Father from beyond our realm and He did so in the power of the Spirit lived, and died once for us all. All sin we'll ever commit then has a punishment, penalty, or consequence and permanent death consequence because we are helpless in it unless it is forgiven by God. On Jesus was laid your's and my sin and its punishment. Can you value important, relevant, the need to appropiate His love and salvation? The Cross carries a lot of weight and our estimation of costliness to God for Christians. Old Covenant saints were never quite sure God heard. This is because there was every year as the High Priest went in to the Holy of Holies, remembrance of sins all the time and Jesus came to put away sin once for all by the offering of Himself up to God as a penal substitution of our sin before a Just God who was propitiated. When Jesus by His pleasing aroma offering to the Father at the Mercy Seat in Heaven above the cherebim His Gifts and offerings His perfection He perfected forever those who are being sanctified. He became the Innocent Righteous Holy Lamb Of God's Sacrificial Choosing in God's Sight: re: Our New Covenant. When Christ died He led captivity captive, emptying Abraham's bosom of good souls and He gave good gifts to men including giving poured out the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Day. We can now speak in tongues as the initial physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit being filled with the Holy Spirit. All through Acts this was so. By faith and trust in Him, having accepting Christ as Savior and Lord and continuing in Him we're living it out loud and out and out for Him building ourselves up on our most holy faith with an open pardon from Him. Old Covenant saints looked ahead to Messiah, and we look back to Him. God can only show you this is the truth because man will fail you. Take Him into your lifestyle and heart as Savior from your sin and sins, and repent. Tell Him you're sorry today. Ask for His forgiveness and to be saved. Then set Him always before you. Make Him your certain square Covenant agreement and try to please only Him. Live like there are no other causes or apps to qualify you or qualify you for His Technical work (Done at Calvary,) but HIS Graceful Presence before you and within you. He is always with you (never does He leave,) and your desire is to be delighting in Him and to glorify Him. He and His Presence alone can hound you like a dog to get saved by His Spirit or affirm and confirm it that it took place at the point in time you did it in the past. Remember He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. And then He speaks to you saint of God. And dreaming His dream for you we dream can become like God's dream for us overall in particular in the Body of Christ in the New Man always increasing us. But if in this life only we have hope in Him only we are of all men most miserable but if we're in Him we have over-abundant spiritual life and sight & HE must increase and we must DECREASE. We weep God's tears pray God's prayers and hope God's hope for God's Will to be done here and Paradise or Heaven as we learn it as it is There to pray to be enacted on earth concerning this life & then the next, its heavenly destination for our own home, hope as we call Christ the object of all hope, to be from God direct, and He is our destination/goal in assurance. 'The Second Chapter Of Acts' that great Christian Rock Music Band has said it good, "I've Got A Mansion Builder Who Ain't Through With Me." We have assurance of salvation from the Holy Spirit then He bearing witness with our spirit that we are God's children. Remain in His love living after the Spirit in a personal fashion and do everything to make your calling and election sure (that's in Jude and Peter.) Rejoice therefore your names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life. God is intended that in our character we grow and that over our comfort much of the time. "He wants to clothe us with Himself," Sam Chadwick says. God is able to keep you from stumbling and to stand you up held blameless before Him at His Kingdom Coming and His Glory someday. Believing Jesus Christ is a partnership with Him with outrageous retirement benefits. Following Jesus Christ in a Risen life you and I and God can agree on our this road together in Kingdom seeds falling on good ground, resulting in love, joy and peace, and be engaged under a different system then than the unsaved (under His Power, not satan's.) Applying the Word to all of life we learn by experience what God wants us for of His own belonging children joined in Spirit to Him, belonging, to a Family of God. He made us partakers of His Divine Nature for His own, co-heirs in co-laboring bodies, spirits that have a body, free will moral agents that are His, that can decide or choose 'yes' to Him throwing ourselves on the mercy of the Court. God's ways are always higher than our ways, His thoughts higher than our thoughts. In salvation through faith in Christ once for all WE HAVE a dynamic Kingdom of God state of TRANSFORMATION ongoing being already born again and we seek first His Kingdom. Jesus pulled no punches in preaching a straight-forward spot right on Gospel hard showing how difficult it's made for the rich and proud to see or enter the Kingdom of God without 'eyes to see' and 'ears to hear' that are reborn now when from then on they become bondslaves of the Master/King. Because without the born again relationship they're in pride and unable to be benefited. If while following Christ you want to know the deep things of God and being a disciple then: how great are the promises of God and be great in God's Sight, you have to serve and learn how to be willing to serve at the lowest level, be least of all, and last, a slave. Jesus never judged at all anyone for wanting to be great. He encouraged it among the twelve. Jesus makes a difference in a life bound for heartache and defeat. He came to seek and to save what was lost in sin, ruination, the sinful, bruised, (battered, broken, and shattered people He created.) The Church is not for perfect people but for perfecting persons. We make no excuses. We hold to the highest standard. Jesus holds us in an embrace in putting us back together from this world's sin effects. We fall on the Rock which is Christ: (for this to happen subjectively.
Christ is the LAMB of God for sin not just great moral teacher or example. If it was right on Jesus was up on it. He chose to be obedient Son, to love with supreme intelligent decision-making while making alive others spiritually. He acted nonetheless right properly and not from His own initiative but the Father and the Spirit with Him through God, the Trinity also. And He was good in that most highest innate moral sense of excellence. It was cooler for Jesus to speak His mind than to obey the religious, those in religion in other words. But instead He pleased God alone truly rather than man. The early Church grew because people of God have hands and with fingers of God to touch the world. Thousands were saved on a regular basis as the Book of Acts unfolds. This is after Christ's Resurrection. People realized the Mission of Christ was to bring God's forgiveness in His Death and Resurrection. Christ spoke in a different way to the Pharisees who thought themselves good enough who were not after the Spirit and who despised God's way especially the healing of people on the Sabath, and hated other people: really Pharisee, Sadducees, teachers of the law, and scribes that kept the letter of the law and not the spirit of the law. *Jesus spoke and acted condemning of their caustic-like hate for others. He healed many on the Sabbath which angered them and on the other hand He rebuked the Pharisees and Saducees for their hypocrisy and genuinely heard man instead in need and He healed all who came. Boy was He a Healer and empathetic listener. He crossed a then racial lines barrier to do it. He healed several people from a few miles distance, and by spoken word alone sometimes healed also, that incomparable Christ did. All who came were healed by Him of various & diverse kinds of illness or diseases. He commended calling "great" the faith of two persons outsiders to the Jewish Nation. He raised at least three people from the dead. He walked on water at least once and the storm had to be quiet when He spoke to it. This One Solitary Life has affected humanity like no other and touched to such a degree the sick and the hurting in the earth that the world could not contain the books that would be written concerning of all He said and did in other words what that Jesus the Mighty Prophet, Healer, the Lord, Great Physician, Exalted Savior, Prophet, Priest, Master & King: both began to say and do and teach. In hearing the still small voice of God and heeding that Voice then at one's conscience then to "get saved" convicted convinced with compunction about being a sinner is right on. It tells one so convicted convinced to also live a holy life as a Gift from God leaving sin and everything behind by following Christ a disciple in the revealing and receiving of the revelation of His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ in the heart. The Word of God by way of remembrance spoken by God's Voice inside us causes us to practice God's Presence and individually live Holy as the Spirit TRANSFORMS US daily. The dynamic power for being this witness is, "hearing is by faith and hearing by the Word of God (Logos.") The Word of God prevails. It transforms. It performs that mission to which God sends His words ably so. Now this can turn up the heat on your own life or lifestyle (your plans, and better them) AND/OR bring His Victory if you're (quoting Paul,) 'in Christ.' Are you GOOD ground for Him? God through Paul in his writing spoke of the relationship to God within of engagement of faith in the will and in the Holy Spirit and of faith 'in Christ,' following our exalted Head the Holy Son of God with Whom we're called to fellowship I Cor 1:9. There is freedom and victory in serving our God clearly knowing God is by getting to know Jesus. Jesus said, "If you've seen Me, you've seen the Father." You'll at once realize by careful study in His Presence of the Word of God an over-abundance of grace and mercy if you can buy the time yourself that you're a sinner if God has chosen you to show mercy on, an object of mercy. We seem to miss the revelation of God's true glory so easily. God turned the world upside down by it's joyful sound. For God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself not counting men's sins against them and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. And through the Death and Resurection of Himself He's poured out the fullness of the cup of the New Covenant for the remission of sins for the many in His Blood. It's unmerited favor from Himself toward us who believe. It's truly like God signed a will, and dotted every i and crossed every t ensured that it, the Kingdom talked about in the Bible, arrives at its destination and then He died (in Jesus) to execute God's last will and Testament and to make us sons in sonship and an heir. He does it of Himself. Fear not then as it's His good pleasure to do it. God sows a seed to bring us to a salvation experience: a pressing, pressure, squeezing, and narrowing that puts us on our back. There we can look up to God and be saved. By grace you can be saved and KNOW Christ your victory. God causes you to feel, maybe for the first time and experience God's outs: standing up for Jesus inside and on your faces in persecutions even. God gives grace for such times and promises never to leave, nor forsake. Sometimes God wants to skim off the dross from the molten metal of our lives as we rejoice always, exult in tribulation and give thanks in everything and glory in God and in that which happens to us Acts 14:22; Colossians 4:2; Romans 5:3,11. Jude says, "Remember according to the words (gr. Rema) spoken by the Apostles beforehand given us," and "be building yourselves (up) on your most holy faith" ie. on a firm foundation (of Christ's:) as an edifice. Listen you are absolutely somebody because "God wants us to rejoice. God don't make no junk." God's not angry with you because of the Cross. In fact He loves you. It's love from Him uncondemning solid: He's forgiven you for: His gentleness makes one great. It's His gentle reminding of His forbearing of us to keep you blemishless and unreproveable, spotless, unreproachable, no defect, and undeniably so with your spirit, soul, and body being preserved blameless and presented Holy before the Father at His Resurrection by Jesus. Hold onto Jesus's feet and believe Jesus Christ paid it all. God will tell you what this entails. He holds the nails to your coffin of deadness to sin, and sin's enticing, and atttraction to it. "From now on you will only see dead Egyptians," Moses was told by God. You only identify with Christ's crucifixion and for yourself identify and a Christian's profession of hope. You get out of your prison and walk out. You flee sin and/or resist it. You nail it shut (the door to temptation) and leave old ways behind and learn what you can from them to neglect those old ways coming to Christ for help now, following after the Holy Spirit. You tell Satan you hear him laugh and you're angry, and you're not going to take it anymore but submit to God & say to God you will fight, and resist or flee being aware of satan's schemes. "Cleanse yourselves," Timothy writes, "from the filthy old ways (latter); (Cleanse in Greek is Katharizo meaning to cauterize.) If you do, God's Promise is, "God will prune you," and, "You'll, be used for God's Higher or even Highest Purposes." You let Christ's Righteousness on you be thus for you your real evidence of newness of life. Humble yourselves under God. You follow after Christ denying yourself, taking up your cross, and follow Him daily minute by minute moment by moment. The unseen is eternal and the more real in God's Kingdom than the seen which is temporal and subject to corruption and thieves breaking in to steal. Don't sell yourself for a mess of pottage which are trinkets of illusion, false real, deceiving deceptions, and the things the Bible writers makes 'lists' of. Topsy turvy is the expression for the things or parables of Christ concerning our planet under the superficial under the surface that twist upside down to this world within God's will for the believers in the Kingdom of God Spirit. A parable has one main teaching and is an earthly story with a twist of heavenly meaning under it for it's upside down to this world, (or in fact has Jesus's one main teaching per parable.) All things become new in God at salvation.
II Corinthians 5:17-21.
