AND IF OUR GOD IS FOR US WHO COULD EVER STOP US? OR WHAT COULD STAND AGAINST?

AND IF OUR GOD IS FOR US WHO COULD EVER STOP US? OR WHAT COULD STAND AGAINST?

GOD LOVES YOU! Because of the Cross God can be for you!

To accomplish this in our lifetime and with God's Help is commitment' requiring of us to be receiving from Him while knowing unconditionally God's love for us and to be cooperating with the Voice of God and Spirit of God with which we discover we truly need obedience from us in results and of love for God first and love for our neighbor as we love ourselves. And this is by the great great love of God FOR us by learning to read the Word daily and allowing God to work on us as a Potter would clay on a Potter's Wheel. Allow Him. Jesus is the incarnation of God in the flesh and blood. We need to work out our salvation with respect and trembling. Dave Candel Jesus by the way fulfilled over three hundred prophecies about Messiah. Given in the Bible these writings definitely tell us God is in Sovereign and Provident control, man is not, though man thinks with avarice to dominate other human beings he/she is made in God's image and viably accountable at the Judgment. Religion is man's attempts to get to God and it's based on man's thoughts not especially God's thoughts. Christianity is not a religion but is a relationship. It is a peaceful relationship. Non-violent. Jesus in His authentic seal of approval from God is God reaching out even down to man in love in a fellowship-relationship of Blood Covenant with those Whom He chooses and they in turn choose His Salvation, His ways and most of all, Him as Lord. Don't we want then to be encircled by His fellowship and care and belong to God? We have a Savior: Jesus! Started by God Himself with a man called Abraham in Chapter 15-17 of Genesis, God reached out wanted a Covenant. God Himself thus slew several different animals, and God across walked between the pieces. Abram was face to face and walked between the pieces, and thus God was obeyed by faith & later on Abraham was given a son who would down the family line of descent become Messiah. Abraham is thus called the Father of the faithful. We don't worship a book, the Bible, but Who it leads us to: the Living Fountain of life, the Logos Word, Jesus, Who is the Fountain of Life and of Living Water And of the Springs thereof to all who're thirsty. The Bible is God's inerrant final authority in everything being spoken or done. It's verbal plenary inspired, inerrant, and infallible in inspiration and in matters relating to God flawless. Before Abraham God had a verbal speech face to face Covenant Relationship with blood animal sacrifice by Adam, Seth, Noah, Enoch, and then by the time of Abraham, a Covenant with an heir given by promise, and in Jacob that He ratified, that was spiritually related and radically unified man to God and God was the first starter or first party to begin it and God gave assurances He would keep His end of the promise of it being fulfilled by giving an oath to do that too! Interlude: Do we want God to do for us and not we for Him like a wish fulfillment center, or in the latter get to know Him Who He Is? Animal sacrifice by blood indicates that without it, meaning the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. God thus thwarted Satan by man's faith through obedience expressed as every man woman and boy and girl had to bring animal sacrifice to the priest during the Old Covenant. God therefore was the Author of starting the salvation of mankind fulfilled in Jesus Christ by Covenant because of the fall in the Garden of Eden. Genesis3:15. Christ became sin by His Death for us because sin was catching up to condemn us and man truly needed a Savior by faith THROUGH GRACE to realize God's forgiveness. Jesus is It. His Blood is able to cleanse not only the deeds of the mind but the conscience itself from dead works to serve the LIVING GOD!

We needed a salvation because of deaths we couldn't overcome also and consequences of sins we didn't feel a remorse from. We couldn't escape death and the consequences of our sin therefore we nervously accept God's offer. God gave us Jesus "in the fullness of times," and to be the Savior of the world from sin being God's Choice. He took upon Himself the whole world's every man's sin in the scripture it says in II Cor 5:21 and He came out the other side: a happening victorious Person! He did this so that we might be able to live right aply put. But to live right before God is important for all of us obviously. First we need the forgiveness of sins. A right relationship with God the Father. Then and only then is it possible. When anyone realizes the way Christ Died was for them valid they can admit their wrongness before God and BE SAVED. Jesus Himself lived a reverential life to God when He walked here 2000 years ago in respectful obedience. When Jesus was crucified He satisfied God's Justice over sin. God was propitiated or satisfied by it. Don't ask me how but it occurs. But applying of that Atonement back then is personal and individual for us needed now by way of influences and witnesses to the light good for us in God and with the help of the Holy Spirit. Getting back to why Jesus was Born and Died: He was born during a world-wide census Only God could operate to us to have Christ born of a virgin. He lived to about age 30 when He started to minister and heal under the Anointing of the Holy Spirit according to the Bible. He came to send us an anointing too and for us to be IN HIM that is immersed or baptized into His Life, Death, Burial, and Resurrection and replacement by Christ's life for our sinful lives and then we living a God fearing raised risen life in Him. This is salvation in Christ beginning and lived out present Galatians 2:20; Colosians 2, 3:1-12. The Four New Testament Gospels give a precise accurate description of His Life and Ministry Purpose, to forgive us all of our sins and take them away and that to believe Him in His Name is the only way to be saved. Heaven is to know that you get God's Kingdom now within after receiving salvation by believing Him. Everything that is a part of salvation is good to have also Matthew 6:33. To follow Him as our all in all is starting in bowing to Him and have Him as Lord of everything then on even from the empty Tomb's victory side inside us mightily laid hold on, and further to worshiping God wholly and completely rejoicing in what Christ has done for YOU on the Cross lifted high re: is important to meditate on and live! After His Resurrection people of God wondered why Jesus didn't restore all things as He said would be on God's agenda. But Jesus said, "it is not for you to know the epochs or seasons the Father has in His keeping.," in Acts 1. But before He (Jesus) died He said, "the Holy Spirit The Comforter (one called alongside to help one on one) would come if Jesus went away and would be like Himself in every single way (allos in Greek for the same kind.) The Holy Spirit would magnify Jesus and the truth (alethea in Greek,) reminding born again Christians (His children) of what He said. The Restoration would come later (see Revelation 21,22.) The early Church went about doing good: chirping Greek laleo, the Gospel good news and telling Jesus Resurrection by their lifestyle is why that confession of faith Christ saves us was to everybody they met by spoken word leleo (greek, chirping or gossiping the Gospel,) and by lifestyle choice (or lived out.) It was a lifestyle message also, cutting to the heart of many who are lost who became saved souls who were in the balances in a lost state but for Christ's cause became a saved witness that died a martyr's death. But persecution for the stand they took was winning the world upside down. And God let it happen a long time, into the fifth-century. The Holy Spirit was empowering the body of Christ to think and act and 'BE' WITNESSES for Jesus Christ and it shows by attitude that became the underdog David that slew the Goliath: Nero and ten or so Emperor's. The Church gains Eternal Life in bowing the knee to and making profession to the Lord Jesus Christ rather than Caesar. Satan bites dust. But God truly wants to give you a newness of life confession or in other words a faith charged glimpse into a extraordinary life in the realm of influence He's called you to by the Power of the Spirit possible or empowerment of the Christ's faith for you in other words, made "complete." But get saved first. Obtain Eternal Life that starts for you in accepting or believing Christ and living for Him. Behold, Today is the day of salvation. For the Kingdom of God is not meat nor drink (not in a geographic location, as well as a lot of temporal other things) but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost Romans 14:17. God will accomplish this by His grace alone. He's called you to a change from a sinful life to a transformation spiritually being born again from faith to faith. God doesn't want anyone lost in other words but rescued. Pretty soon there may be no delay by God in longsuffering or tarrying for His Son's Coming again' patience. God chose by the foolishness of PREACHING to save them that believe. To see Christ high and lifted up crucified taught is what we want to see and hear, not in shadowed eloquence, but with plainness of speech. To be saved, and Jesus Himself said the way is narrow ruggedly difficult and gate, difficult to surmount to a life of simplicity in Jesus Christ. But the way to destruction is broad and the gate wide to it and many meet their destiny: hell living in sin going to their end of lake's fire by sin's destructive consequences thereat and are perished, and so we need a faith that sees beyond what others see, a belief of faith IN JESUS that goes beyond the crowd of 'in' people. the peers of our world, and grows (into born of God life: zoe in Greek - the God kind of life,) by admitting we've sinned, deserving of hell, and so accept God's salvation! Jesus spoke about hell as a place to at all costs shun and as did the brother of Christ, James, Gehenna and Paul, Perdition but Christ spoke more about hell than anyone in scripture. Christ in essence said, "You must have a faith in Me because if I am lifted up above in My sacrifice in Dying on a cross for you by the Spirit given when I am resurrected you'll be saved *to enter or see the Kingdom of God *if you believe (Me): John's Gospel 3:1-16 (paraphrase.") A God Who lets sinful people have their own way for very long wouldn't be just nor would He be very loving to the victims of a sinner flashing a sword to victims. God wants you well that's why He gave the Law. "The Law is Righteous and Holy and Good," Paul said in Romans two. It is help to love others. Sin is lawlessness and violating the Laws of God which Law was given to us through Moses to show us we fail God (as in The Ten Commandments,) as well as God's Holiness and Love in everyday events by misdirecting an inner voice, namely the Holy Spirit's voice can be convicting or commending even now. We would not know it was against the law to covet if it wasn't in the law, Paul said in Romans seven. When we hear the law, "we died," because of its holy demands and we have to change our thinking and believe God's New Covenant has better ways of the Spirit. "I through the Law am dead to the Law that I might live to God. Galatians 2:19." "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1 says, " Jesus didn't come to condemn the world but that the world might through Him be saved (through Christ,) John 3:17. Antionomism is anything goes and every situation, relative to the next one, (living it up,) allowing for no absolutes...: that is in behavior and attitude action: false conduct, thus making chaos. By this we grieve God who gives the Holy Spirit. But we see by these infallible proofs and the laws that God puts out there we fail to obey, are His laws, we don't own them (specificly we disobey Him.) 613 laws of the Law (of God given through Moses) we fail at and are bad at keeping even though we might live a ying & yang, good-and-bad life that we think God might see and (in miniscule chance (judge)) to be" balanced out." But that's no good for you for at its best it's a false assumption. As light cannot dwell with darkness so we are called to radical sonship in the Lord Jesus as opposed to this world's ambitions. "There is no one good but God," Jesus said, and His Standard is Holiness. His Standard will stand forever. These Ten Commandments (or 613 depending on how you view them,) show us a limit on personal avenging of a victim to his/her aggressor. That's God's mercy that this limit is put there by God to avenging or vigilanteism. Between coveting and retributive sins face it friend we've lost before God. We need saving. God in essence is saying we need a Savior to live it, to lessen the severity of the spins and bumps in the night by His Word and prayer and by His help and to have help enough to gaze focused on the beauty of Jesus Christ. To save us from our passions we need a Savior for in many ways we fail and have gone way over the line or limit in sinning before God. Remember God is Holy, Righteous, Good and to the last drop, the Bible proclaims. If we have ever lied we have sinned before God or if we have ever stolen we have sinned also. Scripture says one sin is like as bad as the other and, "miss the Mark in one point, and you've missed (failed) every one of them (Laws) James 2:10.) Thoughts of love turned to lust? hate? murder in the heart? We deserve hell rightly so because God's Law judges such attitude/behavior (See Jesus' words in Matthew 5,6,7,) and God the Judge does as well. Encountering Jesus face to face you can be translated or conveyed from the power of darkness into the Kingdom of His Dear Son, Colossians 1:13. For Utopia or Heaven God created creation majesty and man and woman in dignity to be upright because to live there and to live there after death requires a "perfection suit." Otherwise as soon as one of us showed up there it would be no longer Utopia or Heaven. We'd stink up the place acting rude and ugly. Jesus went to Paradise and succeeded at God's Presence for us: revealing, redeeming, intimating, and in His Body bought us and reconciled us to Father God in a word of exhortation we tell others so they pray for salvation, follow through, to obey Christ and persevere so they can go to Heaven too. II Cor. 5:19. He shows us all that's there waiting for us. He's the 'perfection suit.' All others are liars and thieves, "trying to climb up some other way," scripture declares, "into the sheepfold," John 10 says. But Jesus couldn't be kept in the grave. He arose the third day. He was justified, vindicated. Jesus is God and is God dwelling among us in flesh in a way we could relate to. When He went to Heaven He sent His Spirit in His place. We, in Heaven someday, will get a Body just like His if we don't move away from the hope of the Gospel good news delivered to us in becoming saved. In mercy He Himself now provides the way to Himself and this place Heaven we could not bridge when He sent Himself in the First Advent in the form of Jesus Christ: He lived it: a pleasing life to God before God pleasing of His Ten Commandments (and the 613 laws) here on earth obedient to death even a savory cross death pleasing God (by Sacrifice) to the last breath. Now we can live a Resurrected life in spirit that shows up in flesh and blood and can obey God through Christ by faith through grace and the marvelous Holy Spirit. In His Cross victory His way, we could accept "it is Finished" by the Son and so somehow to reach to the resurrection from the dead (meaning Heaven,) Paul said in Philipians at the Rapture or when we die by knowing Christ inside in committment to Him because, "absent from the body is to be present with the Lord." This is the first resurrection. We get a new body that's physical that doesn't sin if we made it there. It's a sure promise with conditions but as every promise has conditions. We must grab hold of it though every promise has its yes in Jesus Christ easily laid hold of for in Him we live and move and have our being, He being not far from anyone of us. As it says, "we are His Offspring." Acts 18. We are partakers of the promises of God if we persevere in faith mixing faith with a good report too. God has His timing to answer us. It may be "no," "yes," or "wait." But He answers. We partake of God's Nature. He died in weakness a crucifixion death by man's hand (II Corinthians 13:4,) and that was Friday's happenings..We were the ones to do it for indeed we would be, but Sunday's a Coming! and He Arose from the dead and lives by the Power of God in that victorious fashion He alone could adopt us for as sons crying "Abba, Father!" That Triumphant Success of a Resurrection has been the most documented fact of history! He brought tithes and offering to God which was His Blood to the Throne where God dwelt. His Righteousness counted because it was His not a man's. Access is now there. He has gone through the Heavens and its all ready. He had gone to the cross to suffer God's wrath in an eternity in those six hours on the cross. He suffered our punishment full blown of an eternity of eternities in God's Wrath completely and came out the other side! Alive! He had the full strength of God's Judgment and Wrath poured out upon Himself just to save us, to come out the other side, and make us like Himself, more than conqueror's, overcomers in this life, born again, saved at last belonging to Him. Now we can go free from the snare of the fowler like birds set free: forgiven! Can you not respond in kind cautious of your fate if you don't, to that act of one time and once for all Finished Work and believe Jesus the Son of God died in your place with committment to believe that Jesus Christ will apply it to you? And you will be Saved. Pray about it. There's so much more to salvation than being just forgiven. You get the riches of grace at His Table which He sets even in a wilderness! You can feast at Jesus' Table anytime. You can have faith to be healed and for salvation. You can be assured of Heaven as you follow Jesus on the earth totally comitted! By way of Background, There was a way of the Ark of His Presence which had a Mercy Seat surrounded by four cherebim and many seraphim where God dwelt back in the Old Testament. This later became the Temple: Holy of Holies. And then Christ Himself on earth and now Christ is within each believer, by the Holy Spirit who gives life and ministry to each of us! God says, "I will dwell among you and be your God." II Corinthians. God is here and in the Bible specially has His Presence in and upon believer's lives. But you have to be IN Christ to win or gain abundance of living but not earn Eternal Life but gain God's Presence at least. You become ministers to God ministering unto Him. In other words, salvation has to be applied to your life and it's a forward gaining stamp of approval working out that has to see the end of your life BY GRACE proved faithful and for sure it's a Gift (Bepo in Greek,) by unmerited favor. 'Faith alone' by grace alone in those that obey by faith alone through Christ alone is to those abiding in Christ. The obedience of faith to God Paul spoke of in Romans chapter one and through chapter 16 in other words will be how God sees and wants pleasure from you if you will will God's will and continuously live after the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived that perfect life perfectly. "I am the way the truth and the life, no man gets to the Father but by Me," Jesus Christ said (John 14:6.) We need to be born of God or born again Jesus taught (John 3:3,5!) It's simple. We admit we're sinners and have fallen short of God's glory (and that's in Romans 3:23 to say.) Romans three verse ten says, "There is none righteous, no not one." We fall short on the mercy of God and roll our faults on Him and accept Christ as our Lord and Savior humbly in a bow before Him. This can happen all at once. Paul the Apostle said He when he realized he was not doing God's bidding bowed before God and so should we. Be following Christ all the days of your life and meaning it authentically & sincerely: you will have a sure foundation against the storms of life to come established on the Laws and Promises of God and Christ's work in you and so we'll have an inheritance God gives walked out that we'll have prepared for us rooted in God. Jesus is the only way to God. America needs revival to learn this. Abide in Him like a Branch to a Vine kept by a Vinedresser, Father God John 15:1,2. It is my prayer that you will pray fervently earnestly to know God to the point God knows you through Christ and sincerely ask God to be saved through His Blood so you can be ready should He call you home to Heaven (Philippians 3:20-21,) or prepared for more action in this life and use for God: so then read the Bible and find Jesus Christ for your life and lifestyle daily. It's for everyone! It's a new spiritual life not religious jargon nor religion at all. God promises a new self. God gives a new heart and new mind. This is all in Christ and all things are of God re: II Corinthians 5:17,18: newness of life! I was at an age of four when I understood this and asked Him in to be my Savior from sin. It's made by God so a child can understand good news of God's love and faith and trust and be saved. It's been a better life, a witness for Jesus, since then asking Christ in for me and I have never regretted a moment of it, making Jesus Lord, Savior, and Master, King! My aim as is the desire of everyone born again in Christ is to be Christlike and more like Jesus Christ moment by moment throughout one's lifetime by faith and trust which brings obedience into it. www.bethelagny.com">Bethel Assembly Of God Church Website with Podcasting Great sermons last Sunday!
