FORGIVEN! THEN JUSTIFICATION TO LIFE! SANCTIFIED! (revised)

FORGIVEN! THEN JUSTIFICATION TO LIFE! SANCTIFIED! THE LOVE OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU! Forgiven. Sanctified. Jesus keeps giving and giving, until my heart overflows: empowering. Stir up the Gift of God within. Does this need this forgiveness to relate richly to God occur because we need God all the time? Yes indeed absolutely God's forgiveness is needed to have the Ransom Paid to have peace with Him. That we may be more aware of reconciliation, grace, even abundance of grace is needed. We are totally unable to please God in our flesh and blood Isaiah 53 tells us because of lower or old nature before salvation. We need forgiveness, the spontaneity of instantaneous erupting born again life living that starts once, but lasts forever, a surrendered life renewed in spirit with everlasting life and forever from God alone. Be instant in season to live for God letting Him live in you. And to be humbly realizing our sinful condition before salvation is well. This is sublime! Holy Spirit led! To be counting the cost to obey Christ and be His disciple and to lay it down at Christ’s feet and rise obedient. Even to embrace the saving grip of the hand of the love of our Savior, King, and Master even our Friend the Fairest Lord Jesus Christ and worship Him in Earth and Heaven! For He presented His Blood and Body in our place before the Seat before the Throneroom of our Heavenly Father Abba! We so then want to receive the grace of His even the riches of His grace to Abundance!! Who knows the order of God's decrees? But put to yourself the peace of Jesus and remain raised with Christ and seated with Him in the Heavenlies! If Heaven is your goal a relationship with God Our Maker Heavenly Father Abba is primary, a priority! God loves you! Access is through Jesus Christ by the new and living way of His Body that was spent for us on earth and on the cross, even His revolutionary life for 33 and a half years, and Perfect Blood He presented in our place to the Father Abba God Who sits on the Throne in Heaven through His Exaltation or Glorification for He sat down at Father’s right side in Heaven (meaning the Work is Finished-Done.) I Corinthians 15:1-8; Hebrews 9-13. Many of us have taken to mine a conflicting image of Who God really Is because we did not have a godly parent nor example of Holiness to follow and so a balanced view of God is skewed for us and of Earth and Heavenly Eternal things. This ambivalent view of earth and sky and beyond to even God Himself is going to impact our lives adversely. We need to know more of the Character of God and Characteristics (His Names and their meanings,) and as they relate to us. God is spirit and we must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth John 4 says. He is Spirit. He fills the universe. He is exalted above all of creation. He stands alone. There is no equal to the God of the Bible. God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all. When it says God is light and in Him there is no darkness it means there is no sin, evil or death. God is the sum total of everything that is pure and excellent. God is pure and the promise of God is the pure in heart will see Him! And His purity is excellent! The hope of seeing Him purifies. He is transcendent, within creation but above it. He created everything. He’s outside it and within the hearts of believers specially. He’s Omnipotent: All-powerful, Omnipresent: Everywhere present in His Presence, and Omniscient: All-knowing. He is a Person. I John 4:4 says, “Whoever does not love does not know God for God is love.” It is saying love expresses the nature of God. Unless God’s love is revealed to us we do not know how to love others. Biblical love involves choice. It is a decision. It is shown in the choices we make on a daily basis. We cannot fathom or comprehend the magnitude of God’s love for us. It is high and we are well able to attain it (in faith’s measure.) God is love but love is not God. God’s love can be all-pervasive in everything but is as we know God better. As far as expressing God’s Attributes, God’s Holiness, Righteousness, Justice, Mercy, Eternity, Faithfulness, do this as well and so does truth. It is important not to de-emphasize His other Attributes when we speak of God‘s love. There is a tendency to over-emphasize God’s attribute of love. When we speak about His love we must balance it with His other attributes. Because when we over-emphasize His love we make Him out to be little sentimental in His love. The Law is our schoolmaster to lead us to Christ but the power of the Gospel is the Law expresses Him perfectly for it is perfect and good. He Himself expresses good in His righteousness, love and mercy in it and He undertakes to cure the effects of the Law and sin itself to make us whole born again in newness of life eating from the Tree of Life: Jesus. The Law is there to become the power of sin because to keep or obey it is unattainable in our flesh and it works death, (within and without we sin when we attempt to keep.) We fall short of God's glory. No one hit’s the mark when they are outside Jesus Christ is a fact. But the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death, (and note it is past tense giving us greater assurance of Christ is our victory.) His love should always be emphasized with other attributes. We learn from God’s other attributes, because He is Holy His love is pure. Because He’s Eternal His love is everlasting and it’s limitless. Because He is just and merciful His love embraces everyone. When we talk about God’s love it is important that God’s love is felt or experienced in light of His other Attributes. God is Holy, God is Righteous and therefore He will not tolerate sin in our lives. We need the glory of God lifted up within and high above and through the Heavens so we may be empowered by the Work and Person of Christ inside residing and so we can follow the righteousness which is in Christ alone, a disciple of His by the Holy Spirit. So how do we get to know God first? Let God drop into your spirit, “I want to know you God!“ We can’t fully know everything about God but through His Son and His Attributes we can know enough to fully relate to Him. In your conversations with God let Him in on all your doing or being, and letting Him near, search your heart forgive the wrongs you’ve done, and get back into His good graces, and take time to submit to Him submissive for receiving forgiveness and to know you through your prayer closet of praying. Realize the Work of the Cross is a Word to you Finished and Fragrance in its scent of good because its so good (Charis.) God through Paul says, “the Gospel of God I am a debtor to all men to preach,” Romans 1. This is Eternal life that they may know Thee the only true God and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent I John 1. Jesus prays and prayed in Gethsemane for us and He ever lives to intercede on our behalf to be saved and follow after Him. God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Let that sink in. He is longsuffering us-ward but not willing any perish and so encouraging of us as well to seek Him and His face. He can keep you from failing or falling. He is your provision. God’s all seeing eye we perish because of sins, and the Word of God in fact says otherworldliness when it says in Romans 5:7 "In due time Christ died for the-ungodly," and 5:8, "While we were still sinners (and enemies of God) Christ died for us!" Such love! Let’s seek Him with the whole heart, mind, and spirit as creation man made by Him bears His image. Even being fully aware of God’s love for us as God does love us unconditionally He does not want our sacrifice alone after salvation to look upon to receive His promises. He wants our body for service voluntarily(Rom. 12:1,) but His Grace brought the Sacrifice (Eph. 2:7,8,9!) He wants us. Do you hear that? He’s safe and also untamable. His grace does it all as we co-labor pleasing Him alone not man. But hear the still small Voice of God when you hear His first impressions in the Word of God. You can bear your brother or sister in the Lord up in your spirit if you are beginning in prayer by getting to know God improved. The sacrifices of God are a gentle and/or quiet spirit and/or a broken and right spirit. Repentance of the heart, the will is the perfect will of God for us. Externals follow. Follow through after mental assent and commitment to in the Story of Jesus in the Bible. God puts together the broken pieces of who we are when we are releasing what is in our hand to Him. Rend your hearts and not your garments God's Word teaches us that what is inside is really taken priority for us in Christ. He wants our heart. He wants what is inside of us which will come out of us later on. Is it living water to others? Does it heal others? Exalt Christ? God wants friends of us and friends and sons and daughters in rightness even the rightness of our subjection or submission to Him. This goes to even the substitution of HIS… Excellent Right Living for our sins, and not for us to become slaves of sin nor slaves of this world’s thinking anymore. And this He did. He Died for the sin of the whole world. Philippians 3 explains to remain in Christ. Washed in the Blood, we’re sanctified! Even as ruler of us and in our hearts the Lord Jesus Christ, and as Christ is Lord over us over sin God wills His ruler-ship as we obey all aspects of morality in the Word and out of the Word as saved individuals. We also are letting Him rule us holy Romans 5,6. Holiness can be a great utter relief! But he that sins is the servant of sin it says in Ezekiel, Romans, etc. but Holiness is a gift from God on the other hand. One pays wages of death (from sin,) the other Everlasting life (from the gift of God in Jesus Christ.) We don’t try to impress anyone or God with our performance but we know the Savior by grace through faith. And we should not pivot on anything but Christ’s intended action toward us in bringing purpose (to us,) nor proceed like we don't know that there is pleasure in sin for a season and that to neglect. But indeed as Moses abstained from the pleasures of sin in some complete vision he was experiencing as seeing Him Who is Invisible with God’s help knowing they were but for a short season (in Egypt) even so should we too however regard the Word of God precious and abstain/neglect sin. Egypt has always been a symbol of the world in the Word of God. “Love not the world,“ John’s letter says as well as James. O Christian let the word of God dwell in you richly. It will keep you from sin. But if any man be “in Christ,” (He/She is forgiven;) he/she is a new creature, a new creation, the old has disappeared, THE NEW has come. Grace is the key to Christian walk and unlocking forgiveness UNLOCKED in Jesus Christ and Tender Mercies; God’s Love: it‘s conduit. Begin to know Who God Is by the way He Acts, His Stories, His Epiphany, Christophany, Will, and His Way in the Bible, God‘s Holy Word. When you pass to Heaven someday, God's Word says, God looks up in the books and The Lamb’s Book to see if the name that is yours is still in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Hint, Live life through God’s lens or eyes in Christ’s Finished Work washing one another‘s feet. We decide by faith to believe the Gospel that it included you and me when Jesus calls and chooses His own and go after God's plan for ourselves by God sanctifying you transforming you as you come to Jesus Christ to meet through prayer God daily face to face. And begin by belonging to His Family having compassion loving by grace through faith in the Finished Work of Christ to pay for your sins by His Death, Burial, Resurrection, Ascension, Exaltation, Glorification in the NOW moment. When we say these things we are on sound foundation! Salvation is the Gift of God not of works not of ourselves lest any man should boast; That's in Ephesians.2:7,8,9,10. He saves putting grace to us or a scent/fragrance of newness of life to ‘smell‘ of goodness! It is our profession of good works in Christ God in ordained for us to walk. There is a Throne-room in the Heaven God puts down in Himself for this person to have (happen) who is asking for the saving of him/her, “Paid in full.“ No if’s ands or buts, but like a ring in a bell God performs heart surgery giving a life preserver called salvation. Just call on Jesus. Call on His Name. There is a lot to a person's name and what's behind it. The same is with God's Name and Jesus'! We acknowledge faith in God for believing Christian living but don’t need to change right now because God will transform us. But change we must. In God’s sight the transaction took place. The Deed has been Done And Finished in the Death of the Son. In the crucible which is trials of life God purifies you from the dross in you for first your position comes then your experience in temporality with God in this earth. Sometimes over and over the dross comes off James 1:3, 12, 14. We labor for grace in His rest to enter it for grace will be sufficient in the Potter‘s Hand. “Charis’ is the Greek word for grace and in the time of the early church it meant, “a scent or fragrance which a quality of good work,“ and it “smells good!“ After confessing you have been wrong before God and making peace with God through spiritually receiving Resurrected Jesus Christ (His Work, His Person) the Blood of Christ availing that is taking it’s effect, acknowledge Jesus Christ‘s message of salvation for you, knowing then that without Him we are nothing. We can do nothing indeed its so. But with Him there God wants/desires to dwell forever in you and put His Stamp of approval and ownership on you. How we live is God’s evidence to Himself then and to us of His power keeping us. God imparts and imputes our lifestyle in Christ before others and before Him in being saved if we let Him in from in submission to obedience to the Holy Spirit at conversion. Confirmation of restoration is in the entering in of the Holy Spirit in you full with the evidence of fruit of love and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. In the Holy Spirit we have transformation and so a changed lifestyle ensues. Evidence of this is we first come to Jesus Christ His way which is the way of His Blood through the Spirit then this profession is positional standing God imparts and imputes to you both to will and to do in/to you of His good pleasure. You allow God first place within in every decision. Its by your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, The Sinless Lamb of God as your life Who takes away the sins of the world that He gave it us freely from Whom we have Blood Covenant of this life in the Son. He promises to complete His work He started in you until that Day He comes again to takes you home! We forgive freely anyone who has harmed us or offended us. We must endure to persevere believing to the end even through temptation. THROUGH is the important word here. Jesus Christ is the destination. Let our lights shine being witnesses, ministers to what the Lord can do! There is so much more to the Abundant Life Christ pro-offers complete than mere forgiveness imparts as eating at God's Table imparts and impacts too and in the enjoying moment by moment of His Great Fellowship like Abraham or Daniel or David did. This can be a black tie affair with limousine service in class! A Great Fellowship indeed! A Feast at the Table in the wilderness with Jesus! Even a table set before us and our enemies. Forever, Eternally! We live in the Presence of God in Christ in and through the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ and it is a life of mercy, action, and peace: bond-slaves of His having emptied of our wills of our desires and plans to obey the Resurrected Jesus’ Spirit as friend and bond-slave indeed then on. Do you have a balanced view of Who God Is or are you maybe having a slavish view of God from the world? "Abba" is how God wants you to think of Him! It means "Daddy!" Or "Papa O My Papa!" Jesus introduced much of that beloved feel, that God is our Father totally good and even good in His correction of us. It’s all good to us. Whoever is forgiven much will love much! Take heed how you hear! To him who has more shall more be given! Christ has made to us a fragrant offering, a Charis, an Overpayment for our sins. It is grace smelling good over and above with mercy overabundant. Grace is getting what you don’t deserve and mercy is not getting what you do deserve. We deserve punishment literally eternally for our sins but…God, but God Who is rich in His great mercy extravagance from Himself gave us a living hope, confident assurance, “for He knows our frame, He remembers that we are but dust.” Psalm 103. We can never ever exhaust God’s mercy. God’s mercy is so abundant we can never tell of its end nor see its end coming. God is fair and will make (it) up to us from our sorrows, disappointments, our struggles; mercifully He’ll make it up very indeed alright to us when this life is through physically. But you have to have Jesus Christ inside for it (for glorifying God alone,) or you‘ll get weighed in the balances and found wanting. It’s not fire insurance but it does pay Eternal good even dividend to the Body of Christ as we give up houses for Him. And He is lifted up and we are benefited as each one’s gift is intact to help the many function equipped and tooled, that the many more might be saved. Jesus was God and equality with God was not something He grasped but… emptied Himself of His privileges and prerogatives to live dynamically in Holiness with loud cries and tears in order to save Himself and then us. Through great ethical deep dependence and relying love on the Father and the Holy Spirit He aimed and hit every time THE PLEASE of His Father God Supreme and love others Supreme. He could have grace and mercy as His privilege and prerogative so at His right side ready lest a time of need overtake, because He wanted to obey, (not only obey,) but TO PLEASURE His Heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit even to the death on a cross. Buried like Jonah God Resurrected Jesus Christ and Raised Him by the Power of the Father’s Word! Jesus gives redemption, having paid the Ransom to own us, and gave to us perfect access right into the Father’s Throne-room. You better believe it! His Resurrection is the most well documented fact in history! It’s Life in/through the Son! Right believing will bring right living through the Lamb! Where sin abounds, grace does super-abound! And Remember God loves you Eph. 2:1-4! This fear aspect of believing God by severe and harsh fear is met eye to eye when one empties oneself of one’s will like in the kenosis in Jesus of one’s will and worships God in fullness with everything they have extrovert through the Son!! It’s righteous worship like the Alabaster Jar we break on His feet is worship if we can draw close! Follow Jesus, disciples of His words, attitudes, and thoughts, ever full of the Spirit, practical! Will you come to Jesus Christ today and be saved? God will gladden you: He will transform your dead works by way of awakening conscience to serve the Living God acceptably with godly fear! Your conscience will become sensitive to truth in a newness. In truth He will sensitize you to the very sensitivity to be sensitive to the sensitive Holy Spirit. God tore apart the veil in the Temple from top to bottom to open God’s Presence when Jesus Died! Wow! That was an amazing feat. He will take the stony heart out of you and give you a heart of flesh. He will write the law of God within and without on the fleshy tablets of our heart. He will change you from glory to glory and faith to faith but more, and there’s more: He’ll also restore, comfort, and give you peace redeeming you giving you Eternal life, lasting comfort, forever: Everlasting life with challenge. So begin to attend a Bible believing Church, Pray every day, Read the scripture, God's Holy Word the Bible all the way through and specially the Gospels of Luke, John, Matthew, and Mark, and Letters of Paul up to Revelation. Look into God’s eyes and bask there in acceptance. As you read it lengthen your stay and stare until you mirror it in your soul and reflect it in you. Only what’s inspected will last or change. Witness to others of your salvation and passion for faith in Jesus and do it daily. You’ll find a way God supplies to give God your best and let your surrender humbly be yours. Like Caleb ask God for an inheritance. Jesus will never leave you nor fail you. Trust in Him ever! “He will look you squarely in love in your eye and say, “I accept you, go and do that for others.“ Dave Candel This is my testimony as I live in our town of Franklin Square at Bethel Assembly of God Church in 2013 in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Forgiven? Jesus keeps empowering. Does this need this forgiveness to relate richly to God occur because we need God all the time?
Yes indeed absolutely God's forgiveness is needed to have the Ransom Paid to have peace with Him. We are totally distant, divided, devastated, depraved and unable to please God in our flesh and blood Isaiah 60, 61, 52, 53. We need forgiveness, the spontaneity of instant erupting born again living that starts once, but lasts forever, renewing in spirit everlasting. And to be humbly realizing our sinful condition. This is sublime! To be counting the cost to be His disciple and to lay it down at Christ’s feet and rise obedient. Even the saving love of our Savior and Friend the Lord Jesus Christ! We want to be a receiver of the riches of His grace! Put to yourself the peace of Jesus! If Heaven is your goal a relationship with Our Maker Heavenly Father God is primary, a priority! God loves you! Access is through Jesus Christ by a new and living way of His Body that was spent for us on the cross, His revolutionary life for 33 years, and Blood He presented in our place to the Father God on the Throne in Heaven I Corinthians 15:1-8; Hebrews 9-13.

Many of us have a conflicting image of Who God really Is because we did not have a godly parent nor example of Holiness and so a balanced view of God is skewed for us. This ambivalent view of God is going to impact our lives adversely.

We need to know more of the Character of God and Characteristics (His Names and their meanings,) as they relate to us. God is spirit and we must worship Him in spirit and truth John 4:4. He is Spirit. He fills the universe. He is exalted above all of creation. He stands alone. There is no equal to the God of the Bible. God is light and in Him there is no darkness. When it says God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all it means there is no sin, evil or death. God is the total sum of everything that is pure and excellent. God is pure and the pure in heart will see Him! And His purity is excellent!

I John 4:4 says, “Whoever does not love does not know God for God is love.” It is saying love expresses the nature of God. Unless God’s love is revealed to us we do not know how to love others. Biblical love involves choice. It is a decision. It is shown in the choices we make on a daily basis. We cannot fathom or comprehend the magnitude of God’s love for us.

God is love but love is not God. As far as expressing God’s Attributes, God’s Holiness, Righteousness, Justice, Mercy Faithfulness, do and so does truth. It is important not to de-emphasize His other Attributes when we speak of God‘s love. There is a tendency to over-emphasize God’s attribute of love. When we speak about His love we must balance it with His other attributes. Because when we over-emphasize His love we make Him out to be little sentimental in His love. The Law is our schoolmaster to lead us to Christ but the power of the Gospel is the Law expresses Himself perfectly, and He Himself in His love and mercy undertakes to cure the effects of the Law and sin to make us whole born again.

His love should always be emphasized with other attributes. We learn from God’s other attributes, because He is Holy His love is pure.

Because He’s Eternal His love is everlasting and it’s limitless. Because God is just and merciful His love embraces everyone. When we talk about God’s love it is important that God’s love is seen or experienced in light of His other Attributes.

God is Holy, God is Righteous and He will not tolerate sin in our lives. We need the glory of God lifted up empowered by the Work and Person of Christ so we can follow righteousness in Himself, a disciple of His by the Holy Spirit.

So how do we get to know God first? Let God drop into your spirit, “I want to know you God!“ We can’t fully know everything about God but through His Attributes we can know enough to fully relate to Him. In your conversation with Him let Him in on all your doing or being, letting Him forgive the wrongs done, get and take time to submit to Him receiving forgiveness & know you through your prayer closet. God through Paul says, “honor me in this for the Gospel of God I am a debtor to all men to preach,” Romans 1:8.

This is Eternal life that they may know Thee the only true God and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent I John 1. God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Let that sink in. He is longsuffering us-ward but encouraging us as well to seek Himself. God seeing we perish because of sins, the Word of God in fact says otherworldliness when it says in Romans 5:7 "In due time Christ died for the-ungodly," and 5:8, "While we were still sinners (and enemies of God) Christ died for us!" Such love! Even being fully aware of God’s love for us as God does love us unconditionally He does not want our sacrifice alone after salvation to see or receive His promises. His Grace brought the Sacrifice! He wants us. Do you hear that? He’s safe and untamable though. Hear the still small Voice of God when you hear God His impressions in the Word of God. You can bear your brother in the Lord up in your spirit if you are beginning in prayer getting to know God. The sacrifices of God are a gentle and/or quiet spirit and/or a broken heart and right spirit. Repentance of the heart, the will is the will of God for us. Externals follow. Follow through.

God puts together the broken pieces of who we are when we are releasing what is in our hand to Him. Rend your hearts and not your garments God's Word teaches us. He wants our heart. He wants what is inside of us which will come out later on. God wants friends of us and as friends and sons in rightness even the rightness of the submission to substitution of HIS… Excellent Right Living for our sins, not for us to become slaves of sin nor slaves of this world’s thinking anymore Philippians 3. Washed in the Blood, I’m sanctified! Even as ruler of us and in our hearts Lord Jesus Christ, and as Christ is Lord over us over sin God wills His ruler-ship as we obey all aspects of morality in the Word and out of the Word letting Him rule us holily Romans 5,6. He that sins is the servant of sin it says in Ezekiel, Romans, etc. but Holiness is a gift from God. One pays wages of death (from sin,) the other Everlasting life (from the gift of God in Jesus Christ.)

And we should not pivot on anything but Christ’s intention in bringing purpose (to us,) nor proceed like we don't know that there is pleasure in sin for a season to neglect. But indeed as Moses abstained from the pleasures of sin in some complete pattern with God’s help knowing they were but for a short season (in Egypt) even so should we too however regard the Word of God as precious and abstain/neglect from it. Egypt has always been a symbol of the world in the Word of God. “Love not the world,“ John’s letter says as well as James. Christian let the word of God dwell in you richly. But if any man be “in Christ,” He/She is forgiven; he/she is a new creature, a new creation, the old has disappeared, THE NEW has come. Grace is the key which is forgiveness UNLOCKED in Jesus and Tender Mercy; Love it‘s conduit. Begin to know Who God Is by the way He acts, His stories, His epiphany, will, and His way in the Bible. When you pass to Heaven someday, God's Word says, God looks up to see if the name that is yours is in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Hint, Live life through God’s lens.

We decide by faith to believe the Gospel that it included you and me when Jesus calls and chooses His own and go after God's plan for yourselves by God sanctifying you as you come to Jesus Christ to meet through prayer God daily face to face. And to belong to His Family through faith in the Finished Work of Christ to pay for your sins by His Death, Burial, Resurrection, Ascension, Exaltation, Glorification we are on sound foundation!

Salvation is the Gift of God not of works not of ourselves not of works, lest any man should boast! That's in Ephesians.2:7,8,9,10. He saves putting grace to us. There is a Throne-room in the Heaven God puts down in Himself for this person to have happen who is asking for the saving, “Paid in full.“ No if’s ands or buts, like a ring in a bell God gives a life preserver called salvation. We acknowledge faith in God for this but don’t need to change because God will transform us.

But change we must. In God’s sight the transaction took place. The Deed has been Done & Finished in the Death of the Son. In the crucible God purifies you from the dross for first your position comes then your experience in temporality with God in this earth James 1:3, 12, 14.

We labor for His rest to enter it. After confessing you have been wrong before God and making peace with God through spiritually receiving Christ (His Work, His Person) the Blood of Christ availing that is taking it’s effect, acknowledge Jesus Christ‘s salvation for you, knowing that without Him we are nothing, but with Him there is where God wants/desires to dwell forever in you and put His Stamp of ownership on you.

Confirmation of restoration is in the entering of the Holy Spirit in you with the evidence of fruit of love and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Seeing we first come to Jesus Christ His way which is the way of His Blood through the Spirit then this profession is positional standing God imparts and imputes to you both to will and to do in/to you of His good pleasure. Its by your faith in the Jesus Christ, The Sinless Lamb of God as your life Who takes away the sins of the world that we have this life in the Son. He promises to complete His work He started in you until that Day He comes again to takes you home!

We must endure to persevere believing to the end. Let our lights shine witnesses, ministers to what the Lord can do! There is so much more to the Abundant Life Christ pro-offers complete than mere forgiveness imparts as eating at God's Table imparts too and in the enjoying of His Great Fellowship like Abraham or Daniel or David. That can be a black tie affair with limousine service in class! A Great Fellowship indeed! A Feast at the Table in the wilderness! Even a table before our enemies. Forever, Eternally!

We live in the Presence of God in Christ and through the Lord Jesus Christ it is a life of mercy, action, and peace: bond-slaves of His who knew His will (salvation) and having emptied of our wills our desires and plans to have obeyed the Resurrected Jesus’ Spirit as friend and bond-slave then on.

Do you have a skewed or balanced view of Who God Is or are you maybe having a slavish view of God from the world? "Abba" is how God wants you to think of Him! It means "Daddy!" Or "Papa O My Papa!" Jesus introduced much of that beloved feel, that God is our Father totally good and even good in His discipline to us.

Whoever is forgiven much will love much! To him who has more shall more be given! Christ has made indeed to us an Overpayment for our sins. It is grace over and above mercy.

Grace is getting what you don’t deserve and mercy is not getting what you do deserve. We deserve punishment eternally for our sins but…God, but God Who is rich in mercy extravagance from God gave us a living hope, confident assurance, “for He knows our frame, He remembers that we are dust.” Psalm 103. We can never ever exhaust God’s mercy. God’s mercy is so abundant we can never tell of its end nor see its end. God is fair and will make up to us our disappointments, our struggles; mercifully He’ll make it up very indeed alright to us when this life is through physically. But you have to have Jesus Christ inside for it. It’s not fire insurance but it does pay Eternal good to the Body and each one’s gift to help.

Jesus was God and equality with God was not something He grasped but emptied Himself of His privileges and prerogatives to live dynamically in Holiness with loud cries and tears in order to save Himself.

Through deep dependence and relying love He aimed and hit every time THE PLEASE of His Father God Supreme and love of others Supreme. He could have grace and mercy as His privilege so at His right side ready lest a time of need overtake, because He wished to obey (not only obey,) but TO PLEASURE His Heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit even to the death on a cross.

Buried like Jonah God Resurrected Jesus Christ and Raised Him by the Power of the Father’s Word! Jesus gives and gave to us perfect access right into the Father’s Throne-room. You better believe it! His Resurrection is the most well documented fact in history! Life in/through the Son!

Right believing will bring right living through the Lamb! Where sin abounds, grace does super-abound! And Remember God loves you Eph. 2:1-4! This fear aspect of believing God is met when one empties oneself like in the kenosis in Jesus of one’s will and worships God in fullness with everything they have extrovert through the Son!! Like the Alabaster Jar we break on His feet!

Follow Jesus, disciples of His words, attitudes, and thoughts, ever full of the Spirit, practical! Will you come to Jesus Christ today and be saved? You’ll be glad you did: He will transform your dead works and dead conscience to serve the Living God! He will sensitize you to the very sensitivity to be sensitive to the sensitive Holy Spirit. God tore apart the veil in the Temple to open God’s Presence when Jesus Died!

He will take the stony heart out of you and give you a heart of flesh. He will write the law of God within and without on the stony tablets of our heart. He will change you from glory to glory and faith to faith but more, there’s more: He’ll also restore, comfort, and redeem you giving you Eternal life, lasting comfort forever.

So begin to attend a Bible believing Church, Pray every day, Read the scripture, God's Holy Word the Bible all the way through and specially the Gospels of Luke, John, Matthew, and Mark, and Letters of Paul. Look into God’s eyes as you read it until you mirror it in your soul. Witness to others of your salvation faith daily. Find a way God supplies to give God your best and let your surrender humbly be yours. Jesus will never leave you nor fail you. Trust in Him! Dave Candel

ARE YOU ONE FORGIVEN?!

Forgiven? Jesus keeps empowering. Does this need this forgiveness to relate richly to God occur because we need God all the time? Yes indeed absolutely God's forgiveness is needed to have the Ransom Paid to have peace with Him. We are totally distant, divided, devastated, depraved and unable to please God in our flesh and blood Isaiah 60, 61, 52, 53. We need forgiveness, the spontaneity of instant erupting born again living that starts once, but lasts forever, renewing in spirit everlasting. And to be humbly realizing our sinful condition. This is sublime! To be counting the cost to be His disciple and to lay it down at Christ’s feet and rise obedient. Even the saving love of our Savior and Friend the Lord Jesus Christ! We want to be a receiver of the riches of His grace! Put to yourself the peace of Jesus! If Heaven is your goal a relationship with Our Maker Heavenly Father God is primary, a priority! God loves you! Access is through Jesus Christ by a new and living way of His Body that was spent for us on the cross, His revolutionary life for 33 years, and Blood He presented in our place to the Father God on the Throne in Heaven I Corinthians 15:1-8; Hebrews 9-13. Many of us have a conflicting image of Who God really Is because we did not have a godly parent nor example of Holiness and so a balanced view of God is skewed for us. This ambivalent view of God is going to impact our lives adversely. We need to know more of the Character of God and Characteristics (His Names and their meanings,) as they relate to us. God is spirit and we must worship Him in spirit and truth John 4:4. He is Spirit. He fills the universe. He is exalted above all of creation. He stands alone. There is no equal to the God of the Bible. God is light and in Him there is no darkness. When it says God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all it means there is no sin, evil or death. God is the total sum of everything that is pure and excellent. God is pure and the pure in heart will see Him! And His purity is excellent! I John 4:4 says, “Whoever does not love does not know God for God is love.” It is saying love expresses the nature of God. Unless God’s love is revealed to us we do not know how to love others. Biblical love involves choice. It is a decision. It is shown in the choices we make on a daily basis. We cannot fathom or comprehend the magnitude of God’s love for us. God is love but love is not God. As far as expressing God’s Attributes, God’s Holiness, Righteousness, Justice, Mercy Faithfulness, do and so does truth. It is important not to de-emphasize His other Attributes when we speak of God‘s love. There is a tendency to over-emphasize God’s attribute of love. When we speak about His love we must balance it with His other attributes. Because when we over-emphasize His love we make Him out to be little sentimental in His love. The Law is our schoolmaster to lead us to Christ but the power of the Gospel is the Law expresses Himself perfectly, and He Himself in His love and mercy undertakes to cure the effects of the Law and sin to make us whole born again. His love should always be emphasized with other attributes. We learn from God’s other attributes, because He is Holy His love is pure. Because He’s Eternal His love is everlasting and it’s limitless. Because God is just and merciful His love embraces everyone. When we talk about God’s love it is important that God’s love is seen or experienced in light of His other Attributes. God is Holy, God is Righteous and He will not tolerate sin in our lives. We need the glory of God lifted up empowered by the Work and Person of Christ so we can follow righteousness in Himself, a disciple of His by the Holy Spirit. So how do we get to know God first? Let God drop into your spirit, “I want to know you God!“ We can’t fully know everything about God but through His Attributes we can know enough to fully relate to Him. In your conversation with Him let Him in on all your doing or being, letting Him forgive the wrongs done, get and take time to submit to Him receiving forgiveness & know you through your prayer closet. God through Paul says, “honor me in this for the Gospel of God I am a debtor to all men to preach,” Romans 1:8. This is Eternal life that they may know Thee the only true God and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent I John 1. God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Let that sink in. He is longsuffering us-ward but encouraging us as well to seek Himself. God seeing we perish because of sins, the Word of God in fact says otherworldliness when it says in Romans 5:7 "In due time Christ died for the-ungodly," and 5:8, "While we were still sinners (and enemies of God) Christ died for us!" Such love! Even being fully aware of God’s love for us as God does love us unconditionally He does not want our sacrifice alone after salvation to see or receive His promises. His Grace brought the Sacrifice! He wants us. Do you hear that? He’s safe and untamable though. Hear the still small Voice of God when you hear God His impressions in the Word of God. You can bear your brother in the Lord up in your spirit if you are beginning in prayer getting to know God. The sacrifices of God are a gentle and/or quiet spirit and/or a broken heart and right spirit. Repentance of the heart, the will is the will of God for us. Externals follow. Follow through. God puts together the broken pieces of who we are when we are releasing what is in our hand to Him. Rend your hearts and not your garments God's Word teaches us. He wants our heart. He wants what is inside of us which will come out later on. God wants friends of us and as friends and sons in rightness even the rightness of the submission to substitution of HIS… Excellent Right Living for our sins, not for us to become slaves of sin nor slaves of this world’s thinking anymore Philippians 3. Washed in the Blood, I’m sanctified! Even as ruler of us and in our hearts Lord Jesus Christ, and as Christ is Lord over us over sin God wills His ruler-ship as we obey all aspects of morality in the Word and out of the Word letting Him rule us holily Romans 5,6. He that sins is the servant of sin it says in Ezekiel, Romans, etc. but Holiness is a gift from God. One pays wages of death (from sin,) the other Everlasting life (from the gift of God in Jesus Christ.) And we should not pivot on anything but Christ’s intention in bringing purpose (to us,) nor proceed like we don't know that there is pleasure in sin for a season to neglect. But indeed as Moses abstained from the pleasures of sin in some complete pattern with God’s help knowing they were but for a short season (in Egypt) even so should we too however regard the Word of God as precious and abstain/neglect from it. Egypt has always been a symbol of the world in the Word of God. “Love not the world,“ John’s letter says as well as James. Christian let the word of God dwell in you richly. But if any man be “in Christ,” He/She is forgiven; he/she is a new creature, a new creation, the old has disappeared, THE NEW has come. Grace is the key which is forgiveness UNLOCKED in Jesus and Tender Mercy; Love it‘s conduit. Begin to know Who God Is by the way He acts, His stories, His epiphany, will, and His way in the Bible. When you pass to Heaven someday, God's Word says, God looks up to see if the name that is yours is in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Hint, Live life through God’s lens. We decide by faith to believe the Gospel that it included you and me when Jesus calls and chooses His own and go after God's plan for yourselves by God sanctifying you as you come to Jesus Christ to meet through prayer God daily face to face. And to belong to His Family through faith in the Finished Work of Christ to pay for your sins by His Death, Burial, Resurrection, Ascension, Exaltation, Glorification we are on sound foundation! Salvation is the Gift of God not of works not of ourselves not of works, lest any man should boast! That's in Ephesians.2:7,8,9,10. He saves putting grace to us. There is a Throne-room in the Heaven God puts down in Himself for this person to have happen who is asking for the saving, “Paid in full.“ No if’s ands or buts, like a ring in a bell God gives a life preserver called salvation. We acknowledge faith in God for this but don’t need to change because God will transform us. But change we must. In God’s sight the transaction took place. The Deed has been Done & Finished in the Death of the Son. In the crucible God purifies you from the dross for first your position comes then your experience in temporality with God in this earth James 1:3, 12, 14. We labor for His rest to enter it. After confessing you have been wrong before God and making peace with God through spiritually receiving Christ (His Work, His Person) the Blood of Christ availing that is taking it’s effect, acknowledge Jesus Christ‘s salvation for you, knowing that without Him we are nothing, but with Him there is where God wants/desires to dwell forever in you and put His Stamp of ownership on you. How we live is God’s evidence to Himself and us: even of our lifestyle in Christ before others and before Him if we let Him in from then on in submission to obedience to the Holy Spirit. Confirmation of restoration is in the entering of the Holy Spirit in you with the evidence of fruit of love and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Seeing we first come to Jesus Christ His way which is the way of His Blood through the Spirit then this profession is positional standing God imparts and imputes to you both to will and to do in/to you of His good pleasure. Its by your faith in the Jesus Christ, The Sinless Lamb of God as your life Who takes away the sins of the world that we have this life in the Son. He promises to complete His work He started in you until that Day He comes again to takes you home! We must endure to persevere believing to the end. Let our lights shine witnesses, ministers to what the Lord can do! There is so much more to the Abundant Life Christ pro-offers complete than mere forgiveness imparts as eating at God's Table imparts too and in the enjoying of His Great Fellowship like Abraham or Daniel or David. That can be a black tie affair with limousine service in class! A Great Fellowship indeed! A Feast at the Table in the wilderness! Even a table before our enemies. Forever, Eternally! We live in the Presence of God in Christ and through the Lord Jesus Christ it is a life of mercy, action, and peace: bond-slaves of His who knew His will (salvation) and having emptied of our wills our desires and plans to have obeyed the Resurrected Jesus’ Spirit as friend and bond-slave then on. Do you have a skewed or balanced view of Who God Is or are you maybe having a slavish view of God from the world? "Abba" is how God wants you to think of Him! It means "Daddy!" Or "Papa O My Papa!" Jesus introduced much of that beloved feel, that God is our Father totally good and even good in His discipline to us. Whoever is forgiven much will love much! To him who has more shall more be given! Christ has made indeed to us an Overpayment for our sins. It is grace over and above mercy. Grace is getting what you don’t deserve and mercy is not getting what you do deserve. We deserve punishment eternally for our sins but…God, but God Who is rich in mercy extravagance from God gave us a living hope, confident assurance, “for He knows our frame, He remembers that we are dust.” Psalm 103. We can never ever exhaust God’s mercy. God’s mercy is so abundant we can never tell of its end nor see its end. God is fair and will make up to us our disappointments, our struggles; mercifully He’ll make it up very indeed alright to us when this life is through physically. But you have to have Jesus Christ inside for it. It’s not fire insurance but it does pay Eternal good to the Body and each one’s gift to help. Jesus was God and equality with God was not something He grasped but emptied Himself of His privileges and prerogatives to live dynamically in Holiness with loud cries and tears in order to save Himself.

Why Does Life Bring Many Questions?

Is Mother Nature the best answer to life's ambiguities? I think not because There is no end to the conflicts engendered by that evolutionist belief system! God in His Omnipotence Omnipresence, and Omniscience has revealed Himself in the Creation and the Bible. The Bible has been the most widely read Book for millennia! God tells us Who He is in the Bible and His plan for mankind how He wants to keep us if we want it back. When one man Adam fell by disobeying God's commands God Himself reached out by sending His only Beggoten Son becoming one of us and this Man obeyed where the first man fell. God Perfectly wants sons and daughters. Jesus Who is God the Son Died for us becoming sin for us so He as our 'sin-bearer and escape goat: both, Arose from the dead and is Lord over Death, hell, sin, and the grave! After three days He rose again! Forgiveness of sins is preached in His Name! Jesus wants us to spend Eternal time with Him and Heaven! follow God and Jesus! follow after the Holy Spirit! Salvation brings Eternal dividends, receipt for mercies not invoices for sins! Get saved today! It's by coming to God in Jesus weary, worn, and sad and aware of our neediness before God of the cross effects and accepting of Christ's Finished Work at Calvary. You can choose to believe He chose you! And continue!A Beautiful Body of Christ's Believers on Long Island--<--click a="a">

What Makes The Savior So Interesting!? Hallelujah, What A Savior!

Can you fathom that The Maker and Creator of the universe by intelligent design would concern Himself with you and your welfare even when it cost Him big time? God through Jesus deserves a second and third etc. look because He did some awesome works! God became a man and showed us good like you won't believe!! He healed, did miracles, and a whole lotta good and was as a human does, became vulnerable to harm like any man or woman and because He did not defend Himself in a way we might have nonetheless He knew a Purpose higher and more nobler before God knowing Who He was and why God sent Him! He in one way showed us how difficult it can be in life by being unjustly cruelly crucified when it was for no legitamte reason even when He said, "I lay my life down and no man can take it from Me!" He trusted His Heavenly Father God! The book of Hebrews says He boldly went to Die upon Calvary a Crucifixion and that meant pain! Death could not hold Him in its grip because He was Righteous in God's awareness and innocent! He lovingly took upon Himself our sin our guilt and death penalty, our sin, think of it and God declared many sons through Him will be accomplished! He Bravely despised the shame! He Endured the cross and sat down at the right hand of Father God so you can know God personally and more importantly salvation God's way! Be born again by coming to Christ for salvation accepting His Finished Work on the Cross! Deny yourself, take your cross up and follow Him! Upon being saved becoming real before God, Read the Bible and witness so you can lead many sons to God and His glorification through Jesus Christ and be a light, shine like the firmament in Christ's Righteousness when He comes to make up His jewels! Find a Bible believing Church and stay there, fellowship, forgive others, and testify concerning this new life and be loved, nurtured, and victorious in Christ until the end. It's about Christ's life substituted in you for your sins and you following the Holy Spirit! And when the Chief Shepherd appears (Jesus is returning) you will hear "well done, good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of your Lord" And you'll have a bodily resurrection by God's Holy Spirit in Heaven but obey the Spirit of the Christ moment by moment, daily learning what pleases God not man.

Bethel Assembly of God: Marked By Love 1 John 3:4-12

Bethel Assembly of God: Marked By Love 1 John 3:4-12: The slides for this study can be found here

Can A Man Be Right Before God?

Can A Man Be Right Before God? By David Candel "Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus we have peace with God." Romans 5:1 Let ua go on to perfection. Do you believe in God? OR should I ask do you believe in a personal God? God is more than real and His reality is higher than any other. God seems to hide Himself but throughout history has left His mark of love on man. When "the fullness of times," were present scripture says, "God gave." God sent His Son Who is His Only Begotten to this earth. He was neither created nor generated but exists with the Father. When He was born to a virgin it was the greatest birth of all because the Holy Spirit had impregnated a woman and the sinful nature of man was not transferred to the birth for the first time. History two thousand years ago was highlighted by wise men and shepherds and others who rejoiced at the Savior's birth! When only a boy the Savior Jesus knew He must be about His Father's Business! He grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man learning the Old Testament. He was good in God's sight and went about doing good and healing people. He was baptized by His cousin John the Baptist in the Jordan River at thirty first and began doing good healing the people 3 and a half years! Apart from altruistic feelings we feel we grew up with about God's Son, the Christ was Divine and yet man and as human He lived to die on a Cross to save us from sin. Do you know we die because of sins? It may take a good long time but sin takes it course. Hell will be ruled by sin because it frustrates. It kills. Torment. Sin has been the demise of many good souls with good intentions of altruism. There is a devil and he does not want love; he wants victims. But Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, our enemy. He came to give us life and that life, more abundantly. Not a bed of roses or a silver spoon born in the mouth existence but a life anointed to be full of the good fruits of being filled full with the Holy Spirit by becoming born again or saved. God does the cleaning up inside and we are human vessels He uses in humble ways. The dealings of God with man are written in the Bible, not the Koran, nor the Book of Mormon. Jesus Himself said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life." And He said, "No man comes to the Father except by Me." Now if His miracles and healings, & helps did  indeed back up what He said I'd say it's a steady jump to believe He was God. But if its true and I stake my life that it is we have a responsibility to hear Jesus Christ and choose to believe Who He said He IS! Lift up His Name! Like the saying goes, "you can't keep a good man down," so Jesus was innocent and death could not keep him in its grip. When He was on the Cross He bore our sins and actually became them and their penalty before God and sentence carried out! We deserved hell and indeed the Law condemns and rightly so. For the Bible declares, " There is none righteous, no not one." Isaiah 53:1-6. And it says, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God," Romans 3:23. And in Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is Eternal Life through Christ our Lord." The Gospel is an offense to all. It declares the plan of God and the moral depravity of all men and the Rescue of God in sending His Son for our salvation! Our hearing the Voice of God in the words of God in Scripture is a special revelation only given to those who will have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches. Indeed to every man who thirsts He can save so let him/her drink of the water of life freely! But he or she must call upon the Name of the Lord to be saved if they desire a relationship with God to pursue. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9,10 Ephesians 2:8,9 says, "For by grace ye have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves, not of works, lest anyone boast." II Corinthians 5:17 says if any man is in Christ, He is a new Creation. The old has past and the New has come! II Corinthians 5:19 says to be reconciled to God. Jesus had many disciples but many left when He said these words, "daily be givers; Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Me." But in balance there is comfort in His words too. "Come unto Me all ye who are burdened with heavy labor and I will give you rest." "For my yoke is easy, and MY burden is light!" "Take MY yoke upon you and learn of Me for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall find rest for your souls." Salvation is a Gift but we learn to trust by following His Word and obeying and that's in the Bible. We fellowship with the Father and Son and the Body of His Son! We pray God's prayers and weep God's tears and learn to look on compassion on our neighbors and the unfortunate with compassioned prayers and legs of good deeds of love from our Heavenly Father REALLY love them! All this is promise to those who accept God's Son and forgiveness of sins and begin their adventure of Life IN the Son! For God is able! Being in Christ and being found a lover of God and in the Righteousness of God's Son requires perseverance to make it through and stamina some but God provides to the end of life a way of  salvation. Let us have grace whereby we might serve God acceptably and without fear, just respect, cautious where we step, reverance. Above all Follow Jesus as Lord! Learn what pleases Him and God! When one is saved He learns to stop sin in his/her life. Cooperating with Jesus and God the saved individual shrinks from self-righteousness and all religious activity of one's own origin to rest in Jesus and know Who God Is! He is worthy of all our worship and all our praise! A follower of Jesus does these things..

Love From God Without And Within: The Indiscriminate Grace And Shocking Love of OUR Heavenly Father God!

Monday, June 4, 2012, 3:40 PM  uptick 3/12/16 Imagine Luke 15 gives the story of the Prodigal returned as the Father God in His Magnificent Love of the Lavish Father rejoices that His son has come home! With indiscriminate common grace the Father prevents the son on tip toes from guilt of talking to excuse himself before the Father but instead gets a party from Love of the Father God! FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. JOHN 3:16 The Gospel: A Coming To Christ. How Would You Like To Or Feel Up To And Indeed Good To Go To Being And Indeed Becoming An Intimate Friend Of God And Live An Abundant Life Accepting Friendship by God by responding to God's gracious invitation to Salvation In Christ From God In This Life In The Preparation For And Expectation Of Heaven? I have. Have you been raised in the faith? Is your aim at Heaven? Have you grown lukewarm? Then tie a knot in your rebellion and obey God instead. Do you know He loves you. Do you know it involves discipleship to fully realize God's plan for you in His love and His test in the discipleship to be becoming cemented in Blood Covenant, saved in assurance! And grace is to keep you saved from God as Jesus is Lord obediently IN you? This, our response is to make Him Lord, Savior. Daily on the Altar are you placing you a living sacrifice laid? Do you know to what extent God went Through His wallet photos to show through His action to us His mankind: How He loves us individually in this wonderful lavish almighty unconditional personally edifying uniquely expressing His image type individual-as-if-He-the-only-one-to-us-sending godly arousing passionate Divine/human (Jesus is called the son of man,) love? As you lay open your Bibles you won’t find the Autographs but you will obtain a good translation if you seek to find one. Only the Autographs are inspired though in the original Greek and Hebrew first original. But are you getting to know the God of these verses?! But many versions are good with no change 99.9999% like indeed the New American Standard. Do you believe God would like to personally treat you to relationship that saves from hell and delivers from a sinful lifstyle and He, liking you to find you (as He did Abraham, Moses, or the Apostle Paul) creating re-creation of you and give you such abundant life now as they had on earth and in Heaven as they aimed for? For God is personal and longs to be our Father that way for these people honored Him  being born again faithfully. For love from God does not disqualify nor give up on you nor does not disregard the small of us as we are practicing humility when looking at the forest for all the trees in His hands. He knows us all by name. Even to the very hairs on our head the name "HE" calls us!! He loves us while we were still enemies of His plan. And He loves us mightily STRONG Dying for us. God wants a personal knowing of you. But do you let Him into your conscience? But by examination are you building a House for God of obedient response or you are you in the balances weighed and found wanting? We are not talking abundance of material things here but of the heart, devotion, adoration in the little crevices and heart beat of our soul with Him! God is no respecter of persons. He will reward anybody who is having faith in Him Hebrews 11:1, Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen. Without it (faith) it is impossible to please God. For He that comes to God must believe that He is and is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him! He's after our heart life and new spirit in Christ specially our allegiance/availability as we approach to Him. He's earned a place in our heart of daily love for love shown in sending His only Son two thousand years before to buy us back reveals His Divine offering. He wants us in relationship to Himself and in fellowship strongly specially attending Church (hint, here is mine: Bethel,) and enjoying everyone’s personality individually in His Body of believers! He doesn’t like us at a distance spiritually which pride in sin to us in our haughtiness is doing. A wise man (Walter Beuttler,) has said in order for God to do something for us, He has to do something with us, so that He can do something to us! God gives us the faith to believe which is a gift! Do you have His Gift of Salvation and do you follow Christ so much it hurts? do you recognize He gives you faith to believe, present active indicative in most places mentioned in the Word which is a verb tense of belief and to keep on believing? And that He loves you as Daddy (not a sugar daddy,) but in believing on Him as Source, or Provision (supply?) and good good Father! This special love He loves you with is for the unique person you are and is love by God our good Father Abba Papa and is Savior to you because He chooses to love you making you free to choose Jesus Christ and do not make any choice to fulfill your own flesh desire apart. Freedom is not always safe thing thus but can be dangerous if you do not take in the whole counsel of the Word of God to be saved in relationship to God not necessarily 'religious religion' finding you. Better than sexual freedom and or sensual liscense is love Agapeon for God or receiving and/or responding to God's kind of love for us. Consider God’s Revelation of Himself in of all books, the Bible! He demands we use our will to choice to decide and choose Him for no choice is eternal destruction! Eternal Destiny is at stake! Really! Freedom from sin He promises you in you getting saved and becoming a work in progress in getting to know Him for the rest of your life passively from His work within with a godly pursuit actively in finite spurts of knowing Him by Nature and Love for Him opening up! What would it take for you to show this faith and love for or towards Jehovah God in this Christian relationship? Would you need a breakthrough to faith if only to have peace with Him if you risked high stakes of comprimise with man or of your so called life in crises management to get to Him? YES, Oh How He loves you greatly in the Son. And yes our seeming control of things in life is an illusion. We can surrender control to God or choose money to control. Jesus said, "You can't serve both God and mammon." Do not have an object to your faith but choose God as its object and not faith in faith! It matters because the object of faith is to become God through Christ Jesus Who is saving us. Christ Himself makes peace between us and God and has Done this through the work on the cross of His shed Blood and earthly life and it is a Perfect Sacrifice to propitiate (Satisfying to God well for sin,) or Atone for to make a person's faith's decision to believe GOD to save us from sin (past, present, and future,) which is the only choice for your object. It is through a relationship to God BY THE SON’s Finished Work applied to them. Just as an animal was chosen for sacrifice in olden days for its perfection from defect to give to the priest so the Innocent Lamb of God, Jesus Died for your sins. Jesus is your great High Priest purging our conscience for rooted forgiveness inside and by His Word sprinkling our hearts from an evil conscience and cleansing us from dead works to serve God from our conscious conscience!! There is no formula to get there. There are no glib phrases to repeat, but in Christ: His Personhood: He is the way, the truth, and the life and in that (testimony)of Christ Savior and Lord we’re born again following! John 14:6. We’re each called to our own spiritual adventure and heart surgery! But all come through the Blood of Jesus Christ to New Covenant relationship! You can draw near to God and He will draw near to you. You can submit to Him and the devil will flee from you. You can have in your benefit in God's Salvation in knowing about Him on the way to firsthand experience knowing Him by getting saved. With the pain evident by ethos and pathos known only to you and God, from Him that you are a sinner first you desperately need to know from Hebrews the way is open and plain by the Word made flesh and dwelling among us, Jesus Christ, and you are laid bare and spiritually open by a New Covenant in fact born from an Old one that now is a new and living way to God and is available through the Body of our Lord and His Blood! (And that in Finished Work of Jesus Christ God loves you almightily STRONG, justifies, and transfers His Victory your way!) For in His Presence yes in His fullness there is joy, rooted in Christ joy to be had!; pleasures at His right hand forevermore and this all had in knowing God through Christ simply put. It’s not pie in the sky by and by, but Jesus and His words followed obeyed if you will spend time with Jesus to discipleship. No rose garden promised but led along by ardent penetrating Truth to deny self, take up your cross and follow Him Who Is a Person, Jesus Christ! Follow Him as I do and others. Put God with everything within you in you by faith! Put on the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is coming back for some angry young men Randy Styonehill penned lyrics. Men who will fight for God's honor: angry about sin and its harm. Knowing ironies Of His Kingdom and having the peace with God that fights the Lord's battles love on others. Salvation starts with Finished Works on the cross and our forgiveness of sins from God and is expressed in results: effects like the wind listing to blow through everyone born of the Spirit to the effect the Devils works are destroyed by Christ within and glowing through us! Eternal life which starts at the Death on the Cross at identification of Jesus in us or Resurrection for us even for each of us and it radically changes us by transforming us from faith to faith, glory to glory! With tears I pray the things that break God’s heart will break your heart. Humbly with tears also I wish you to embark on this road to God that, “aims at Heaven!” and hits it every time! (This was a C.S. Lewis phrase - "Aims at Heaven.") For His ways are so much higher than ours! And His Thoughts are so much higher than our thoughts! The cross is our stepping stone not stumbling block to this victory triumphant as overcomers in Him of finding every day in the Lord‘s will of the hidden maztso of Christ like life in the Passover Seder. Keep in mind the destiny of Jesus for us of Heaven is a disciple's cost to count to daily follow Him. Indeed it is foolishness this preaching to some who are blind to not discern spiritual things but they are foolish to disbelieve the cross was a triumphant act indeed. “The fool has said in his/her heart, there is no God. “ Living the Christian life is not in self-glory nor to be lived in self-righteousness nor pity for self, but mightily in Him humbly received, and restored, passively waited out, and best extroverted and actively expressed by faith through grace. Grace has a response to it. Christ is our righteousness and we cry open and honest facing the fact of sins we’ve committed to God need forgiveness and that we’re sinners to Him but for Him to give us Godly sorrow too to give repentance to us not to be repented of or not in worldly sorrow of any kind felt we turn to Him. We’re a work in progress and He’s working in us and on us with Hammer (of the Word,) and sometimes Screwdriver instead intended to make us sharp. Self-glory as a part of self-effort to work to earn pleasing to get to God we cease from and we put aside performance orientated treadmill frustration behind us to impress but instead in the Spirit through Christ knowing Him humbly genuine because of mercy and grace from God humbly and without fear we strive to be like Christ. In other words we watch our strut that it is progressing to a longer stride in the Lord truly dignified and constantly becoming authentically humble like Philippians chapter two: kenosis. Christ genuinely destroyed the work and power of the Devil literally breaking his weapons in two declaring Victory, making an embarrassing end for the devil then and soon in future in display over them his demons Colossian 2. We're enlisted to enforce this destruction and devastation sentence over Satan by the authority of Jesus Christ as we get the Spirit Anointed urge by God in step to victory humbly spiritually! Christ came out of an empty Tomb to fill empty hearts and we be sweet is His victory! Benny Hester wrote or sang a song in Contemporary Christian music called, “When God Ran, “about how God longs to come to each one of us 'sinning' but returning to Papa Abba as children once for all and as prodigals repenting and stopping sin as a habit we do so He longs to fill us His Body with His Presence and with Godly love unto Resurrection Life in the Son newness. Except you become as little children and receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, you will not see nor enter it nor be saved. Therefore, the noblest act for us to do is to sit at the feet of Jesus who is the exact representation of God and learn! Preferably in a prone position humble posture always, to worship Him though posture doesn't matter. Jesus spoke of His Father, “Sanctify us by Thy Truth. “ “Thy Word is truth. “ So should we have this attitude of humility! We can learn by this statement that man is totally depraved and has the witness of God in His existence inside himself it’s so. Attributes of Adam flock to tell its so on a daily basis. Christ is the end or fulfillment of righteousness to all who believe for forgiveness period rather than work for their salvation for those who exert effort on their part for righteousness are doomed from the start to repeated frustration. Its by grace! Alone! Man needs a Savior of necessity and must know he is fallen. There's a influence for God we must transmit. Jesus is to be believed in for salvation literally His Name, Jesus Christ: for grace charis is a good fragrance aroma to us saved and is His Personal Trait and we’re to worship Him for mercy shown as we come to know Who He is more as God in the flesh, a Personal God. He is able to save you by His Death and Resurrection through His Blood imputed, to the uttermost aspect kept by His Power, blessed in Him. You have a piece in this puzzle to contribute to His Body for edification if you endure in this re: the end. He wants us like His Son, made over in His Image. In His love He means to love us so we can help and give to the common good to the end meaning “Rapture,“ or the death you die not spiritually but to this earthly tent. You are Members of Christ in particular. When one member suffers us all suffer and when one member is honored we all get honored. You persevere well through temptation for you live forever in either hell or heaven...But life begins at being born again! Hell is a real place and don’t go there. Be qualified not cast away. When your saved tour saved from the wrath to come or Great Tribulation. If the Rapture comes to pass and you are living in relationship to God by faith through grace with faith obedient, you can be caught up in (“rapizo in org. Bible languages) to the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall you ever be with the Lord Jesus! You're not earning God's love but responding in appreciation. Comfort one another with words like these! Doesn't this sound like something you’d like? Alternatively, learn to like? Love maybe? Read I Thessalonians 4:13-17 and I Corinthians 15:1-7ff. Imagine thinking, “I’m good enough to enter Heaven because my good outweighs my bad and then finding my Standard is no good because I compromise even in attempting to be good and I can say He may honestly say then, “I never knew you, depart you to outer darkness.” In your realer moments you know it is true of us all. We need a Savior Who if we commit to would never leave us nor forsake us: JESUS! Follow Him where He is. Obey His Word even if it don't make sense. Develop sensitivity to the sensative nature of sensitivity to His Voice. In context, "God be merciful to me a sinner," was heard said by a Tax-gatherer who was someone Jesus told as one who humbles himself before God he beating upon his breast in personal agony for his sins in preparation to see God. The Pharisee was a total opposite lost in proud thought. Jesus told the interpretation of this about people who think themselves righteous and show contempt for others. This parable shows humility before God by this publican who came home justified and exalted in due time having humbled himself bowing low before God in petitions and worship God for Who God is in humility. In keeping with the line of scripture I’m towing my family in to all be One, I'm following unified LOVE I‘ve found from Him: that God is love and Jesus shows it personally by His Life, Death, Burial, and Resurrection and Subsequent Life. All must bow down low before God and accept this born again relationship for God says you won't see God nor His Kingdom without it. His way of Rescue from the sinfulness and insidiousness of sin in this world is grounded in sins that we have committed by error of commission and omission seen forgiven in the present Within a Relationship with Him!. Just by being born from Adam, we are responsible and this is because we all were in Adam when he fell in His genes. This invitation to pursue God for all its worth (brave inside) is a testifying that Jesus Paid It All; that the deliverance over sin Christ won to gain our salvation for us was complete and makes us whole; it follows...WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN AS INDIVIDUALS AND INTO A CORPORATE BODY! In Christ or Born of God, in relationship to Him like hand in glove, father and son or daughter! No religion too! As a popular song lyric puts it *BUT IN GENUINE RELATIONSHIP TO GOD! * The Word of God says God created man in the image and likeness of God. It declares man suffers irreparably from the fall of Adam the first man. Law only shows up our sin. Genesis declares in the account record that their fall brought substantial crises to man and that this happened just as they disobeyed God's command to not eat the fruit of the tree God said no to eat as a direct command but disobeyed. Man thinks of loopholes first all the time but he was and is still made in God's image in vestiges latent and man thinks, “how do I fix this,” he then made fig leaves to cover his/her skin before Holy God but God made provision to restore man without help from man for that redemption of the likeness and image of God to be returned. God made animal clothes. He slew a sacrifice and it was the first one. Even this expresses the thought more robustly that the Lamb of God was slain from before the Foundation of the world for God provided firstly AN EVERLASTING Covenant by sacrifice and we play a part in it. Even today in this very moment God would love to order your life anew and show you He has a Divine plan for you to live “in the dust of the Rabbi, “God-breathed (inspired: theopneustos in Greek) and for that likeness or image of God to be restored for you; for me. This is EMT aid by God or CPR God performs on you (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation of the heart and life through spirit in-breath or electro-cardio diagnosis that aids in newness of life heart health.) And I can see in my mind's eye in the unknown for me on my plate to believe the likeness aspects of being in-breathed of Father God our Creator in us that He has vested. In His natural creation acts and in the Finished Work on Calvary it was this as well as that done both because of His love Agape for man. Without regard for who we are in our person alone and in His Own Personal Way Amazing Unconditional personal LOVE IS SHOWN US nonetheless, from His Throne and His long-hearted passion-shown long suffering persevering Sovereignty and Love. It has worked sacredly to appoint justification to us in the cross and for me for a time in particular of being saved in the moment of today because grace is of saving aspect and for us all to happen is my prayer. After being saved God wants to PROVE His people and to test their innocence to unsaved to save many more! Only His saved children get disciplined by Him and that is literally His begotten love! His Kind of Love is Indescribable, Untamable, and we can be motive intended by it! Ask the Savior to save you and make you His! By David Candel

JESUS SAID, "THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND," "THEREFORE REPENT."

“IN THE LIGHT OF GOD IS ALL I WANT TO BE IN!!!” JESUS SAID, "THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS AT HAND," "THEREFORE REPENT." 5/29/12 By Dave Candel FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. JOHN 3:16 The Gospel: A Coming To Christ. How Would You Like To Or Feel Up To And Indeed Good To Go To Being And Indeed Becoming An Intimate Friend Of God And Live An Abundant Life In Christ From God In This Life In The Preparation For And Expectation Of Heaven? I have, have you been raised in the faith? Is your aim at Heaven? Then tie a knot in your rebellion and obey God. Do you know He loves you. Do you know it involves discipleship and test of discipleship to be becoming saved and grace to keep you saved as Jesus is Lord obediently? Daily? Do you know to what extent God went Through to show through His action to us His mankind: this wonderful lavish almighty unconditional personally edifying individual-as-if-He-the-only-one-to-us-sending godly arousing passionate Divine/human (Jesus is called the son of man,) love? As you lay open your Bibles you won’t find the Autographs but you will obtain a good translation if you seek to find one. Only the Autographs are inspired though in the original Greek and Hebrew first original. But many versions are good with no change 99.9999% like indeed the New American Standard. Do you believe God would like to personally treat you to relationship and liking you to find you (as He did Abraham, Moses, or the Apostle Paul) and give you such abundant life now as they had on earth and in Heaven as they aimed for? For God is personal and longs to be that way for these people honored Him for love that does not disqualify nor give up on you nor does not disregard the small of us when looking at the forest for all the trees. He knows us by name. Even to the very hairs on our head. He loves us while we were enemies. And He loves us. God wants a personal knowing of you. We are not talking abundance of things here but of the heart, devotion, in the little crevices and heart beat. God is no respecter of persons. He will reward anybody who is having faith Hebrews 11:1, 6. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen. Without it (faith) it is impossible to please God. For He that comes to God must believe that He is and is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him! He's after our life and specially our allegiance/availability. He's earned a place in our heart for love shown in sending His only Son two thousand years before.

A wise man (Walter Beuttler,) has said in order for God to do something for us, He has to do something with us, so that He can do something to us! God gives us the faith to believe which is a gift! Do you have His Gift of Salvation and do you follow Christ? do you recognize He gives you faith to believe, present active indicative in most places mentioned in the Word which is a verb tense of belief and to keep on believing? And that He loves you as Daddy (not a sugar daddy,) but in believing on Him as Source, or Provision (supply?) This special love He loves you with is for the unique person you are and is because you choose and do not make any choice. Freedom is not always safe thing thus but can be dangerous if you do not take in the whole counsel of the Word of God to be saved in relationship to God not necessarily 3 religion finding of you. Consider God’s Revelation of Himself in of all books, the Bible! He demands we use our will to choice to choose Him for no choice is eternally destructive! Freedom from sin He promises you in getting saved and becoming a work in progress in getting to know Him for the rest of your life with a godly pursuit in finite spurts of knowing Him by Nature and Love! What would it take for you to show this faith towards Jehovah God in this Christian relationship? Would you need a breakthrough to have peace with Him if you risked high stakes your so called life in management to get to Him? YES, Oh How He loves you greatly in the Son. And yes our seeming control of things in life is an illusion. We can surrender control to God or choose money to control. Jesus said, "You can't serve both God and mammon."
