Lordship To Savior Jesus Upon Becoming Saved.

      God's Word teaches us that what is inside, “the thing in hand,” Watchman Nee called it, is really to be taken priority under His Lordship to be submitted to Him. Jesus is Lord must be said by the Holy Spirit and you. This occurs through a release of the Spirit or decision to do it with appropriate zeal and/or compliance with obedience to the Holy Spirit to follow after. Whatever your hands find to do do it with all your might, scripture says. Whatever it is standing in the way of His Lordship He wants our heart in this and things removed, stains covered, prison warden (us) set free to bear a load for others selflessly. He wants what is inside of us: that which will come out of us down the road later on. Is your life exposed to the fine searchlight of God? Is your life living water to others to drink and do you drink of God's love's river? Is it freeing your hands for greater use? Is it healing flowing to others? Does it heal others good? Exalt Christ! He will draw us in. God wants our unity and love through the Spirit and the Word to exhaust our identity in Christ to be about doing good -healing people, helping their needs and some wants. Therefore this life is about of shalls and not defined as shalt nots. God wants friends of us and obeying friends and sons and daughters in rightness even the rightness of our absolute surrender, and subjection or submission to Christ's Headship. God imputes and imparts the relationship even the substitution of HIS…dare we say: Excellent Right Living and Holiness for our sins, a gift to us, and not for us to become slaves of sin nor slaves of this world’s "stinkin' thinking," as Joyce Meyer says, anymore. And this He did once. He delivers us from the lust of flesh and eye and pride of life being God’s Substitute in our place Who Died for our sins indeed for us and the sins of the whole world, indeed He has Done it. Philippians 3 explains to abide in Christ in absolute surrender naturally and supernaturally having asked Him to live inside once and saved. Washed in the Blood, we’re sanctified! Prayer is a learning process in this walk with Jesus Christ. Past tense at salvation sanctification occurred.  But living it is hard. Sin wants to rule us but we must master it. Even as ruler of us and in our hearts the Lord Jesus Christ is now hopefully, so He must be Lord over us all the time and all in all to 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 drawn to Him near. We abstain from its appearance. We also are letting Him rule us Holy Romans 5, 6. Holiness as a gift can be a great and utter sigh of relief! Sin shall not rule over you for you are not under its rulership but under grace. Grace rules now. As saved, Grace in the Spirit is the power (dunamis) of God to obey. 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 sin which is death (from sin committed, and serving sins) the other receiving Christ receives a gift its end Holiness leading to Everlasting life (from the gift of God in Jesus Christ.) We don’t try to impress anyone or God with our performance or good deeds but we know the Savior by grace through faith alone. (I John 1:9 and 2:1 apply at times along with Psalm 51.)Let that hit you like a ton of bricks. We should not pivot on anything particularly but zealously lean on Christ’s intended action leaning toward us in bringing purpose (to us,) nor proceed like we don't know that there is pleasure in sin for a season but that to neglect it is paramount indeed important. But indeed as Moses looked in meekness to God abstained from the pleasures of sin in Egypt He was seeing a vision from Heaven. He was experiencing present active indicative beliefs, Pistes in Greek, as seeing Him Who is Invisible. In Hebrews 11 it says with God’s help He regarded the Word of God sacred, Holy, and precious and abstained from/neglected 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‘ Book, "neither the things that are in the world." We want to be worthy of saving the world like Joseph 3800 years and Jesus 2000 years ago! Romans 8:18 says, "For I consider that the sufferings in this present world are not worthy to be compared to the glory to be revealed in us." "Let the Word of God dwell in you richly," Colossians says. Suffer for being with the Savior, Jesus Christ. To hide the Word in the heart is often knowing of God better right also ever increasing in it and keeps one in Christ abiding. 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 the forgiveness UNLOCKED already in Jesus Christ, God's Tender Son: The symbol; God’s Love: it‘s conduit. It's Finished Work to abide by. Begin to know Who God Is in the Bible of all places by the way He Acts, His Stories, His Epiphany, Christ Appearances, Will, and His Way in the Bible, His Personality in God‘s Holy Word. “He that has clean hands and a pure heart shall grow ever stronger,“ the Psalmist says. And when you pass in death, God's Word the Bible says, God looks up in the books He’s written of your life even The Lamb’s Book of Life: He wants to see if the name that is yours is still in the Lamb’s Book of Life. And will your reward last? Live life through the eyes of God’s lens or in Christ’s Finished Work washing one another‘s feet saved a disciple seeing one another as God sees-saved. We want to feel as God feels and think after His thoughts. Pray His prayers. We decide by faith to believe the Gospel that it included you and me when Jesus calls and chooses His own and so we go after God's plan for our lives living without fear nor worry in His effectual hands. God confirming His will by God the Holy Spirit sanctifying you transforming you as you come to Jesus Christ through the Word to meet through prayer God daily face to face through His Voice and Way, this is good. And begin by seeing yourself belonging to His Family as saved children. Spot check your own life. Having compassion of oppressed, compassionately love them to God by grace through faith in the Finished Work of Christ as your daily mood. Read John 17 as Pastor says, and you will learn the right thing to do at all times. He paid for you in your sins by His Death, Burial, Resurrection, Ascension, Exaltation, Glorification that happened 2000 years ago. 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. “Paid in full.“ No if’s ands or buts, but like a ring on a bell God performs heart surgery and giving you a life preserver called salvation that reads, “Paid, the bill is paid!” Just call on Jesus. Call on His Name. And O the truckload of benefits, the new heart, new mind, new genuine spirit God gives to a person's name when a person of reputation is named like Christ alone smelling good! The same is with God's Name and Jesus'! Everything in Jesus’ Name gets applied to us by faith. We acknowledge faith in God and in His Name for believing Christian living. Don’t try to battle or change right now. God will transform us in holiness and rightness of the truth down the road if we listen and relinquish our will to His. He will give you clothing of right living and you must put it on. But change you can because you are in Christ and living at the foot of the cross. In God’s sight the transaction took place. The Deed has been Done Transacted and Finished is the Work in the Death of the Son. In the crucible of living which is trials of life God purifies you from the dross or the impurities which He skims off the top. First your position then your experience but no formula here in Christ. Sometimes over and over the dross comes off the melting gold James 1:3, 12, 14. We labor for grace to enter His rest for grace will be sufficient when we’re in the Potter‘s Hands. “Charisma’ is the Greek word for grace gifts and in the time of the early church it meant, a scent or smelling good fragrance surrounding one's actions which is a quality of good. After smelling oneself confessing you have been wrong before God and sinful, making peace with God through spiritually aggreeing with God which is confessing, receiving Resurrected Jesus Christ (His Work, His Person) the Blood of Christ availing that is taking it’s effect, acknowledge the message of Jesus Christ‘s salvation for you, are saved. For you Muslim friends Christ is not just Messenger of God but Son of God Savior. He is God incarnate. Knowing that without Him we are nothing we press on. We can do nothing without Him indeed its so! But with Him there inside God wants/desires to dwell forever in you and within and put His Stamp of approval and ownership on you. How should we then live is God’s evidence to Himself at the end and today of His power keeping us. The confirmation of restoration is in the entering in of the Holy Spirit in you with fullness the seal with the evidence filling with the Holy Spirit of speaking in other tongues, fruit of love and the Spirit, and eventual transformation of a true Biblical change to a Holy life a true Baptism in the Holy Spirit's Christ. Reconciliation is the 'victim' of sin, God, forgives and we the perpetrators repent. The world knows us believers by a Christian life. How is you shining? In the Holy Spirit we have transformation from faith to faith and so a turning and a change of lifestyle ensues supernaturally. Evident realism is we first come to Jesus Christ His way which is the way of His Blood and Body for us through the Word of His grace by the Spirit. We hear it and believe. The Sinless Lamb of God as your life Who takes away the sins of the world gives life to us supernaturally from Whom we have Blood Covenant forever in endurance. Even a human will is not put in effect until a death of the one making the will. God is the one making the New Testament in His Blood. He promises to complete His work He started in you until that Day He comes back again to takes you home! Faithfully He calls; He will bring it to pass. He forgives and so we then kindly tenderly forgive freely anyone who has harmed us or offended us with tenderheartedness kindness. We must endure to the end persevering believing even through temptations. THROUGH is the emphatic word. Jesus Christ is the destination. Let our lights shine being single with light in our eyes, witnesses, ministers unto the Lord to what the Lord can do! There is so much more to the Abundant Life than mere forgiveness. God calls to fellowship. A Sweet Great Fellowship indeed! A Feast at the Table in the wilderness with Jesus! Even a table set before us in the Presence of our enemies. Everlasting Forever God kind of life, for all Eternity in quality/quantity for us has begun! And of this life of Zoe, mercy, action, and peace we’re bond-slaves of His. We have emptied our wills of desires and wants and plans to obey the Resurrected Spirit of Jesus’ as friend and bond-slave indeed aware of all God won at the cross. Joseph had gone from pit to prison to palace with just a change of clothes and a haircut. The Spirit of life in Christ Jesus sets us free. No condemnation now I dread from a cracked law of sin and death. Do you have a balanced view of Who God Is? Remember He’s a good Father! Abba is how God wants you to think of Him! It means Dad or "Daddy!" Or "Papa O My Papa!" Jesus introduced much of that beloved feel, that God is our Heavenly Dad totally good and even goodness to us in His daddy correcting of us. It’s all good. He would never withhold anything good from us in His timing if it were not good to us! If we could only grasp the personal and supernatural person of Who God is. Whoever is forgiven much will love much! But take heed how you hear! To him who has more shall more be given! Christ has been made to us a fragrant offering, a Charisma, a grace, a Gift, payment for our sins, helper to provision according Mt 6:33 Kingdom-wise. It is grace smelling good and fragrant smelling with mercy abundant as at first. 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 Him gives us, 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 ever tell of its end nor see its end coming. God is equal and thus 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 (usefully ended,) physically. But you have to have Jesus Christ inside for it for glorifying God alone. It’s not fire insurance but living it or He living it through you, it does pay Eternal good even abundant life in the Son dividend great to the Body of Christ as we sacrificially living obedient and live humbly for Him. What we do after meeting the real Christ is of love. He is lifted up by us and we humble ourselves under His mighty hand and are benefited in His due time His way. Follow Christ's words implicitly. Explicitly live them out in the open. Each one’s gift is duly enhanced intact functioning to help stir up the gift of the many to operate equipped and tooled with the right tool belt and tools be ready, 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 in dynamic Holiness. One thus sees we must eat Christ’s flesh and drink His Blood spiritually speaking. His flesh is meat indeed and His Blood, drink indeed. He stayed right in His heart and mind and so should we. He stayed at the altar of God's choosing. Through great ethical deep dependence on and practical relying love on the Father and the Holy Spirit He aimed and hit every time THE PLEASING of His Father God Supreme and love-others in compassion Supreme. He could let faithfully grace and mercy as His privilege companionate so at His right side rest ready lest a time of need overtake, He resumed sentry duty inside because He wanted to obey TO PLEASURE His Heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit even to the death on a cross. Buried like Jonah was in a fish for three days so God Resurrected Jesus Christ after three days and Raised Him up by the Power of the Father’s GLORY and Word! Romans six tells that. "Jesus keeps giving and giving, giving ‘til my heart overflows!" Truly He gives, having paid the Ransom the invoice for sin giving us receipt instead of bill, (we would have had to pay it ourselves,) to own us. And He 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 as it becomes His Revelation in light to us! It’s Life in/through the Son! Nirvana! Right believing will bring right living through the Lamb! Where sin abounds, grace does much more abound! And through the super Holy Spirit a bone fide member of the Trinity God loves you great Eph. 2:1-4! This fear aspect of not believing our Dad God by fear of works of eye service being rejected is mercifully met eye to eye with love and acceptance instead where one presents oneself a living sacrifice and empties oneself of one’s will like in the kenosis in Jesus of one’s will and worships God in fullness in acceptance in the Beloved with every ounce of umph they have. Entering in the veil we draw near to God extrovert through the Son!! And we can be used by God anytime, having rid us of what was, "the thing in hand," to Christ's Lordship. It’s righteous worship like the Alabaster Jar we break on His feet in New Covenant worship as we draw our hearts near and indeed we can! We can 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 make you glad you found God's heart! He will bring out the best in you and in the light make you changed person! He will transform your dead works to serve the Living God acceptably with godly fear! Your conscience will become sensitive to living truth in a new and HOPEFUL way! In truth He will sensitize you to the very sensitivity to sensitive Holy Spirit acts of Jesus in awakened conscience free from evil and to the sensitivity 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 to us! 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 from faith to faith to more, and there’s more: He’ll also restore, comfort, and give you peace redeeming you (from a locust’s devouring,) giving you Eternal Zoe life, lasting comfort, forever: Everlasting life with God's DNA and Divinity challenge to practicality. 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 every moment and bask there in awestruck acceptance. As you read it, yes read that look in His eyes generously, lengthen and multiply your stay and stare there until you mirror it in your soul and reflect in it, you reflecting perfectly, GOD LOVES ME! You'll want to do the right thing. 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 for God supplies to give God your best and let your surrender humbly be yours in victory. Like Caleb ask God for things and/or an inheritance like in the diverse Family, the Body of Christ. Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you. Let His Kingdom grow in you and in your midst. Trust in Him forever! “He will look you squarely in your eye in love 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. If you prayed and want to know more of Jesus Christ I would be happy to take you personally to Church in my car.

God says, "I have loved you with an Everlasting Love, With Lovingkindness I have drawn you." Billy Graham small clip    God shed His love on us Romans 5. A good man someone might sacrifice for, even die for, but God commends His love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. When God said it was time Christ Died for all. Where sin abounds grace does much more abound and redound through our salvations to the glory of God. Jesus was born. He lived, died, was buried, and arose from the dead, glorified, praise God. Just like God sent the two spies Joshua and Caleb to the inn where Rahab was and were taken immediately to the roof by her for protection and were sent out another way thus Rahab was saved later when Jericho's walls fell. So in the same way if you were the only Man or woman Trusting God by faith in the real Jesus Christ God would have died for you through the Son being sent and Dying for u Substituting His life for us so you could be saved!!!!!! "If I be lifted up I will draw all men unto Me," Jesus says. Like our Pastor received of The Lord when first he got saved, "I know something of the love of The Lord for all men," so we need to know God loves us everlasting in His love and has drawn us with loving kindness! Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands you sinners and purify yor hearts you double minded. That times of refreshing may come from the Presence of the Lord serve and love Him, through Christ the Lord!        another video-->

In Christ's Body We Can Afford To Give And Generously! Revision 4

2.26.13 "I'm Forgiven," (believing) "Now I have a reason for living." "Jesus keeps giving and giving, giving 'til my heart overflows," (Russ Taff sings,) Jesus gives empowering. Stir up the Gift of God pumping the bellows and blowing the embers within into flame. Does this need this forgiveness to rightly relate to God occur because we need God all the time? Yes indeed absolutely God is needed and God's forgiveness is needed to have the Ransom Paid to have peace with Him, peace that is eternally satisfying. Jesus gives giving love, joy, and peace. It is a peace that lasts within the Kingdom of God to us. That we may be more aware of peace, transacted completeness, reconciliation, grace, even abundance of mercy with grace by God is provided for. We are unable to please God in our flesh and blood because saved Christians were at a former time in the flesh (which is at enmity with God.) Romans eight says that. Isaiah 53 tells us also that because of our lower or old sinful nature before salvation which we inherited from Adam we cannot reach or know God. They that are in the flesh ya see cannot please God is the original text. We need a Savior Jesus Christ and forgiveness from God, and indeed we have assurances if we have the Spirit from, the spontaneity of instantaneous erupting born again Zoe life from living that starts once. Its life coming directly from God supernaturally putting in you the Holy Spirit as your vehicle, the grease to help see its effects John 3:8. The ads on Madison Avenue call, “let us put you in a Ford.“ This is better! Called of God and chosen one in this state of living perseveres with life that lasts forever in fact, in Christ and is abundant. Once stumbling upon the narrow way one will not err in its way. You might err but not likely in a way that is not adjustable with a little prayer or correction. Its a surrendered life generously renewed by God with a new spirit with an everlasting zesty quality of life. It has a forever lasting quantity warmth from God alone the Holy Spirit the third member of the Trinity who never leaves, nor forsakes and its born again. Jesus said, He came to give us life! Bios is the term for natural life but God gave Zoe or the kind of life from God in giving His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus said that all His words are Spirit and are life. He came to make us alive awakened in conscience to God amazing! This is communing relationship to God not religion. Religious people are some of the hardest people to be won. He gives us Abundant living and Eternal life sowing in us that starts when you believe or soon will. Be instant in season to live for God holding sacred godly things tight letting the big picture of panorama and Christ live big in you. Humbly be realizing your sinful condition before. This salvation is pure and realize that it is well with your soul recognizing your true identity is changed in Christ. This is sublime! To be Holy Spirit led! As aware of belonging to God by Christ redeeming the price of Ransom/Redemption paid for you on Christ’s cross be thankful. Be so counting the cost to be obedient to Christ and be His disciple and to lay it all down at Christ’s feet and rise obedient a disciple full of compassion (spleen turned upside down) for others. This newness of life is an embrace of and a laying hold of the saving grace of God which is in the grip of the hands of our Savior (Christ like in the Poem: Footprints, God carries you,) and of the love of our God. It’s is not a losing oneself but a deference to our Fairest Lord Jesus Christ the Head submitting and worshiping Him in Earth’s fullness and Heaven, its majestic gladness! For Christ presented His Body and Blood and in our place before the Mercyseat or before the (Ark of the Covenant, the Holy of Holies chamber on its top where the cherubim dwell, in the) Throne-room in the Temple in Heaven of our God to The Heavenly Father Abba! You’ll want to receive the confidence found in certain faithful living in Him through His grace Who Is the living God of mercies and our God of all comfort! For through grace and in God's Fullness, we accept indeed all God has for us by faith! Who in fact knows the Divine order of God's decrees? Scripture makes it clear. God knows. But put to yourself the peace of Jesus and remain saved in Christ walking in God's conversational fellowship raised with Christ communing and seated with Him in the Heaven-lies: all eyes on God all the time! If Heaven is your goal and you would warn anyone not to go to hell to boot, a relationship with our God Maker Heavenly Father Abba through Jesus Christ is primary. It’s priority to pursue Jesus if you haven't asked God for salvation as of yet! God loves you! Invitations for you to Himself are everywhere you go. He visited you all through your life and in many various ways with common grace (grace common to all mankind,) but you must locally focus desire on a relationship with Him starting connection with Him that is special revelation to you to quicken the understanding to fill the vacuum and bear fruit in keeping with repentance. With Eternity in focus spiritually for you you can be saved, regenerated, and Spirit indwelt. Access is through Jesus Christ: as I said previously specifically by the new and living way of His Body and Blood crucified, buried, and resurrected for us on the cross, even His revolutionary life of 33 and a half years, with which He had Perfect Anointing Redeeming Blood declared Holy, Righteous. He presented Himself in Blood in our place to the Father Abba God Who sits on the Throne in Heaven for us through the time or directly after the time for His Exaltation or Glorification from the cross, resurrection and/or ascension. Christ gave Perfect Righteousness to God the Father being and having sole access to Him. He satisfied God for sin. He propitiated or satisfied in other words to God. He sat down at God the Father’s right hand in Heaven (meaning the Work is Finished-Done.) I Corinthians 15:1-8; Eph. 1,2; Hebrews 9-13. Many of us have taken in hand to understand an integrity of walk with God but with difficulty realizing Who God really Is in the Word as we did not have a godly parent nor example of Holiness to follow so a balanced view of God is something skewed for us. This ambivalent mind and roaming hearts in view of all God's done impacts our lives adversely from the past. We certainly need to know more input from people whose heritage is godly in character about the cautious approach to the Character of God and Characteristics (of His Names and their meanings,) as they relate to us. Pray for God's pastors so they get prayed for. Intercession is good as a rule. God is spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth John 4 says. He is Spirit and fills the universe with His Holy Presence and in believers He is indwelt. He is exalted above all of creation as Head Preeminent. He stands alone. There's no equal to the God of the Bible. God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all. Light from Him puts the dark out. In the dark of night He lights our way by night. In His light we shall see light. 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 His pure promise is pure in heart will see Him! And His purity is so excellent being spirit and life in essence from Jesus! The hope of seeing Him purifies. His light swallows up the darkness revealing Who He Is. He transcends space and time. He’s Eternal, within creation but Transcendent outside it also. God is Who He Is and He created everything through the Son. He’s within the hearts of believers specially by the sperma or seed of the Word of God by the Holy Spirit. We are not pantheists which would be saying negatively God is everything. He’s Omnipotent: All-powerful, Omnipresent: Everywhere present, and Omniscient: All-knowing. God is a Person. The Apostle Paul said, "Follow me, as I follow Christ," so each run his/her race. God has superior attributes in gentleness and in gentle behavior as a Person if we commit to Him. I John 4:4 says, “Whoever does not love does not know God for God is love.” John 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 fully. It is high and deep, great and small yet we are daily challenged to overcome with it for we're well able to attain it truly and swim in it by faith’s measure and one’s real experience. We will be swimming in the ocean of His love for all Eternity. Do you know how lovingly and carefully you're cared for by God? Do you know God loves you individually? God is love but love is not God. God’s love indeed can then be all-pervasive and all-encompassing to us in Christ being all in all and having unending purpose for us but is as we get to know God better. As far as expressing God’s Attributes, God’s Holiness, Righteousness, Justice, Mercy, Goodness, Eternity, Faithfulness, do this as well as 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 and His righteousness. 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. Indeed the power of the Gospel is the Law expresses Him perfectly for it is perfect and good and full of God's glory. God expresses good in His righteousness, justice, and mercy in the Old Testament Covenant Law and perfection of the Ten Commandments but He undertakes to cure the effects of the Law on us imperfect humans and sin itself (as sin is destroying us) by a New Covenant. Love is not love unless it is tested. God does this by individually letting us choose Him, thereby changing us letting us be whole born again in newness of life eating from the Tree of Life: Jesus if we take His offer of salvation and follow through on a committed path with Him. The Law is there to make the power of sin known negatively as tension which can’t be used for the benefit of others and tension de-activating as to motive to loving brethren and sin as insidious to us because to keep or obey the Law is unattainable in our flesh because the Law works wrath and death,(within and without we’re sin or malice when we attempt to keep.) We fall short of God's glory. No one's hit the mark when they are outside Jesus Christ. Ever heard of, for instance, “trying not to think of the pink elephant in the corner of the room?” Romans 3:10 say, "There is no one righteous, no not one; there is none who seeks after God." 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.) Jesus Christ indeed gives deliverance from sin and takes them (sins) away as far as the east is from west. Jesus kept the Law perfectly in letter and in the spirit of O.T. law. He is the only example. This fills with flavor the love from God that God sent His Son and not sparing Him came to rescue. Remember He lived and reigned on this earth during the last years of the Old Testament. He is God and His love in Dying for mankind should always be emphasized therefore with His 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 Righteousness being revealed in Christ and other Attributes. God is Holy and God is Righteous and therefore He will not tolerate sin in our lives. He will find a way ahead of us cleaning us up ahead of our path if we allow. We need the glory of God lifted up high within and high above and through the Heavens so we may be empowered in and by the Work and the Person of Christ alone from the cross and Empty Tomb to MOVE in Him & in His Name, His victory. His glory seen by us in us helps each to abide in surrender to God and to follow the righteousness which is in Christ alone, as a disciple of His by the Holy Spirit inside. So how do we get to know God first? Let God drop into your spirit, “I want to know you God!“ and pursue God tenaciously putting the pedal to the metal with passion to let on that you desire greatly to know Him through Christ or much more live it out. Knowledge is through relationship. We can’t fully know everything about God but through His Son and His Attributes we can know enough to fully relate to Him. Instantaneously God can touch you until you know with unction an anointing that remains and that will teach and empower you that you have the connection. In your conversations of fellowship with God let Him in on all your doing or being. Let Him near you, and search your heart forgive the wrongs you’ve done, and let you back into His communing, and taking time to submit to Him submissive in reality for receiving forgiveness and for God to know you in a prayer closet. This is godly sorrow. Realize the Work of the Cross Jesus Died upon is a Word to you Finished and Fragrance smelling good in its scent of an action by God that's good because it’s so excellently good (Charisma,) (God’s grace gifts - perfume scent.) Recognize Jesus arose from the dead! God spoke through the St. Apostle Paul saying, “as to the Gospel of God I am a debtor or preacher under obligation to all men to preach it,” Romans 1, "yes, woe is me if I don't." This is Eternal life that they may know Thee the only true God and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent I John 1. John prays and Jesus prays and prayed for you in Gethsemane and for all believers everywhere interceding for us to come to Him and He ever lives interceding on our behalf to be sanctified, and to follow after His Holy Spirit. God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Let that sink in. He is patiently longsuffering us-ward but not willing any should perish and so is patiently encouraging of us as well to seek Him and His face: His Kingdom is the Holy Spirit's reign within allowing us to lay a sure foundation and be sure of our solid grounding in faith in God. Precious is the death of the saints in the sight of the Lord scripture says. He can keep you from failing or falling and to arrive blameless in Him (into Heaven.) He is your provision in all affliction: Godly Provision  is to share with others Isaiah 61:1,2. In suffering God's Judgment is God’s Holy all seeing eye so we perish in being human a sinful weak vessel but as somehow changed by grace. When we perish because of sins, and the Word of God in fact says there is otherworldliness (God's Utopian government,) a Heaven in fact where it says in Romans 5:7 "In due time Christ died for the-ungodly," and 5:8, God so loved us "While we were still sinners (and enemies of God) Christ died for us!" Such love! Who will lay a charge to God’s elect. None. It is God Who justifies. Nothing can I’m persuaded can nor ever will separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Seek Him every place we cautiously place our feet with loving God with the whole heart, strength, mind, and spirit as new creations re-made by Him in His Son's image with a new heart and new mind. We're being made and re-made fully aware of God’s love for us though incomprehensible also as God does love us unconditionally and we love Him. He does not want our sacrifice half-baked as Saul the King inappropriately gave partial obedience. He wants our body for service voluntarily (Rom. 12:1, 2) and our heart’s devotion to Him in Christ. By His Grace God brought the Sacrifice through Christ (Eph. 2:7, 8, 9!) He wants us. Do you hear that in your soul? He’s safe but also untameable. His grace magnified does it all in us for us as we co-labor with Him cooperating pleasing Him alone not man. But do you hear the still small Voice of God deeply to obey? Hear His deep Voice, first His impressions in the Word of God. Bear your brother or sister in the Lord up in your spirit knowing being saved and born again is by God's grace alone and be in prayer if you are beginning to know God first as a saved person. The sacrifices of God are a gentle a quiet spirit or a broken and right spirit. And God is near to those who have a broken heart to bind their wounded heart. Repentance of the heart, the will is the perfect will of God for us. Walking within with God has this profit outside also. Follow through after mental assent and commitment to in the Story of Jesus in the Bible. Salvation is asking Jesus inside to live. Come in to Him at the cross where each realizing He died for you you incorporating God's action in this for you of grace (He saves you from then on.) God puts together the broken pieces of that which we are when we are releasing what is in our hand to Him. "Rend your hearts and not your garments," the Prophet is saying.

Love From God The Indiscriminate Grace And Love And Mercy, Shocking Love of OUR Heavenly Father God!

    Imagine that Luke 15 gives the story of the Prodigal returned as the Magnificent Love of the Lavish Father rejoices that His son has come home! Bear with me a second because with indiscriminate grace and undeserved mercy the Father prevents the son on tip toes from the guilt of wasting his inheritance to attempt to try to excuse himself before the Father but instead gets a party from Love of the Father God with such hoopla merriment that only could be imagined for a long lost member of the family! 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 to fully realize God's plan for you in His love and test the discipleship to be becoming cemented in Blood Covenant, saved?! And grace is to keep you saved from God as Jesus is Lord obediently IN you? Daily on the Altar laid? Do you know to what extent God went Through His wallet photos to show through His action to us His mankind: He loves us individually in 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 that saves from hell and a sinful lifstyle 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 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. He knows us by name. Even to the very hairs on our head the name "HE" calls us!! He loves us while we were enemies still of His plan. And He loves us mightily STRONG. 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 or you are you in the balances weighed and found wanting? We are not talking abundance of 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 specially our allegiance/availability. He's earned a place in our heart for love shown in sending His only Son two thousand years before to buy us back. He wants us in relationship to Him and in fellowship strongly specially attending Church (hint, here is mine: Bethel,) and enjoying everyone’s personality! He doesn’t like us at a distance spiritually which sin to us Does. 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?) 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 you choose Jesus Christ and do not make any choice to fulfill your own flesh desire. 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 freedom and or lisence is love agape or 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 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 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 have peace with Him if you risked high stakes of comprimise with man or of 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." Do you not have an object to your faith? It matters because the object of faith is God through Christ Jesus Who is saving us, (if we know God firsthand by becoming born again.)(and it is not faith in faith!) 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,) to make a 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. Just as an animal was chosen for sacrifice in olden days for its perfection from defect to give the priest so the Innocent Lamb of God, Jesus Died for your sins. Jesus is your great High Priest purging our conscience forgiven and by His Word sprinkling our hearts from an evil conscience and cleaning us from dead works to serve from our 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! 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 have in your benefit 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 need to know from Hebrews the way is open and plain by the Word made flesh and dwelling among us, Jesus Christ, and spiritually by a New Covenant in fact born from an Old one that a new and living way to God 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 joy to be had!; pleasures at His right hand forevermore and this all in knowing God through Christ simply put. It’s not pie in the sky by and by, but Jesus and His words 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 God with everything in you! 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. Salvation starts with Finished Work on the cross and our forgiveness of sins from God and is expressed in results: effects like the wind to everyone born of the Spirit! Eternal life which starts at the Death on the Cross identification of Jesus in us or Resurrection 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 my and your’s heart. 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 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 for us of Heaven is a cost to count to follow Him. Indeed it is foolishness to some who are blind to not discern spiritual things but they are foolish to disbelieve the cross was triumphant 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 extroverted and actively expressed. Christ is our righteousness and we cry open and honest facing the fact of sins we’ve committed to God and that we’re sinners for Him to give us Godly sorrow to to give repentance to us not to be repented of or in worldly sorrow of any kind felt. We’re a work in progress and He’s working in us and on us with Hammer (of the Word,) and sometimes Screwdriver intended to make us sharp. Self-glory as a part of self-effort to work to get to God we cease from and we put aside performance to impress in the Spirit through Christ knowing Him humbly genuine because of mercy and grace from God humbly and without fear. In other words we watch our strut that it is dignified and constantly becomes humble like Philippians chapter two: kenosis. Christ destroyed the work and power of the Devil literally breaking his weapons in two declaring Victory, making an embarrassing for him display over them 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 spiritually! Christ came out of an empty Tomb to fill empty hearts and 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 so He longs to fill us with His Presence and with Godly love unto Resurrection Life in the Son. 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 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. 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...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
