ANOTHER C.S. LEWIS QOUTE!
All men alike stand condemned, not by alien codes of ethics, but by their own, and all men therefore are conscious of guilt.
For all men have been made aware of law, all men know they are not perfect, yet try, trying, and trying some more to be perfect. We have sayings like practice makes perfect. If at first you don’t succeed stand back up and try harder the next time. Ask for more forgiveness past the cross of Christ, God will forgive you, again and again, and again 70 times seventy. Ask for God’s help God will help you.
Then you still can’t accomplish satisfaction, can’t attain perfection, but we are taught that we must do our best and God will understand and forgive you. Or we are told that we are not trying hard enough. Get back up on that bike and you finally learn to ride. So now you are convinced that this is what you must do for God to love you even more, you by working trying to get closer to God, through practicing being a better person. Or you get told you are being punished and God because of your sin can’t love you. You receive these types of thought and you become a thief, a liar, and many other things that follow this type of thinking.
When God all God ever wanted was your trusting God, seeking God himself to be your teacher in all things, your master, sister, brother, mother, daddy, your all. Did he, Jesus not even say this who are my brothers and sisters, mothers, when his family came looking for him. He said we all are, so please start your belief today and see this glorious salvation where all sins and lawless acts are behind Father’s back never to see again, you being in a new life where you know Father will provide your every need to life here and now, just believe, and when trouble comes because trouble does wanting you to doubt what I just told you, and trouble will go when you give it no thought, and trust thus you will do, for you will be led what to do by the Holy Ghost.
Ex: does a fire stay lit when no wood is added? So does stinking thinking stick around with no thought of it? Stinking thinking would go out just like a fire right?
So there is the answer, brother, sister, mother, dad put out the fire, no more stinking thinking. Become the doer of the word; go past the hearing only of the word.
The word is believe, the word is Christ, the life is in Christ, Father is waiting for you so just ask Father, seek to receive this forgiveness in Christ Jesus, then see the meaning of this following verse
Romans 5:10 New King James Version (NKJV)
10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
You see no one is saved by the death. The death was necessary to take away sin first and foremost. Sin caused death, and Jesus the propitiation for all sin separated death from sin. So that we the believers could have a new life were Father through the Holy Ghost could live in us teaching us by his grace to say no to unrighteousness, Titus 2:11-12
11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age. How can we do this except by trust, and even trust further as we learn the difference when we are trying to do what we can’t do and when it is God doing it through us by faith in God the Father of Christ.
The strength of sin is in the commandment. Sin’s power is in the commandment. Every time it flows through flesh and blood, us the human beings, the law, commandment, codes of ethics, morals, values, it brings guilt to the one trying to obey.
The law’s purpose, being perfect, in and of itself, it is like the traffic cop that gives tickets and fines have to be paid; except with sin, the punishment for sin was death and Jesus took all sin away, separating the punishment of death from sin, so God his Father, now yours through belief, separates the same in you, Father in the power of the Holy Ghost, teaching you to stand trusting Father to live through you. So therefore brothers and sisters receive all people in the following way: understand this as well, this chapter you are about to read is very deep, and is much more than just about food, food is used as the example, so ask God and go down to the depths of this chapters meaning, thank you;
Romans 14 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Law of Liberty
14 Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things. 2 For one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables. 3 Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats; for God has received him. 4 Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand.
5 One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks. 7 For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. 9 For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. 10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” 12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.
Remember it is because of your awareness of the law, that you are condemning to self and others. When mad at others it is used that it is because you love them, when in actuality you through the anger are condemning those you are angry at including yourself. Or your anger is selfish wanting its own way and is not getting it. Either way none of these actions are from God. So seek truth out how to react as each individual situation comes up, God living through you by your asking will state what is needed to be said all to your surprise, once you have experienced this, then again you experience this, I could not go back to my old ways of me in the way. For when I was in the way, I made a fool of myself, how about you all? So let us look at when the BIG I Gets in the way.
Romans 7 New King James Version (NKJV)
Freed from the Law
7 Or do you not know, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law has dominion over a man as long as he lives? 2 For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man. 4 Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. 6 But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.
21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.
So purge your conscience from sin through the finished work of Christ Jesus at the cross. Come back to life in Christ via the Holy Ghost of promise, through your belief.
Hebrews 9:14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Now be careful that the following does not become you, and if has change your mind from unbelief to belief in the living God.
To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.
Loving you all to truth that sets you free
the freedom of God
YOU ARE FREE!
THIS IS THE HARDEST PART TO GET. I REMEMBER BEING SO AFRAID TO JUMP OVER THE CLIFF. I FELT SOMETHING TELLING ME TO LET GO AND LET GOD, AND FOR SOME REASON I DID NOT UNDERSTAND THIS SAYING. I WAS DOING PRETTY GOOD AT KEEPING MYSELF FROM SINNING. WHEN EVER I WENT A WEEK NOT DOING WHAT I HATED DOING, I DID NOT FEEL WEAK, ACTUALLY I THOUGHT I WAS DOING BETTER AND IF I KEPT THIS GOING I WOULD EVENTUALLY GET MY AND GOD’S APPROVAL. SOMETIMES WHEN I WENT TWO WEEKS W/O, I WAS SAYING LOOK AT ME GOD, FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS WATCH MY SMOKE I AM ON FIRE FOR GOD!
PRETTY SOON I AM GOING TO GET IT ALL RIGHT AND I WILL BE JUST LIKE JESUS AND EVERYONE WILL BE SO PROUD OF ME. ESPECIALLY GOD
WELL THIS HAS NEVER OCCURRED, I HAVE NOT ACCOMPLISHED THIS AND I GOT SO DAMNED DEPRESSED OVER THIS, THAT I BECAME MAD BEHIND THE SCENES, CLOSED DOORS, BUT I WOULD NEVER SHOW THIS TO ANYONE EXCEPT MY OWN WIFE, NOT UNDERSTANDING WHY I WAS THIS WAY. I WAS ANGRY BECAUSE I GOT TO THINKING THAT GOD JUST DOES NOT LOVE ME A SINNER THAT SHOULD BECOME PERFECT NEVER SIN AGAIN THROUGH BELIEF IN THE CHRIST, FOR I HEARD HE DIED FOR ALL MY SINS AND DID A PERFECT WALK HERE ON EARTH. SO THROUGH BELIEF IN HIM I SHOULD WALK PERFECT WITH HIS HELP. I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I CANNOT ACCOMPLISH THIS. IT WAS LIKE TRYING TO HOLD TEN APPLES UNDER THE WATER AT THE SAME TIME WITH USING MY HANDS ONLY. I COULD NOT EVEN CHEAT AND ACCOMPLISH THIS. I FOUND IT IMPOSSIBLE TO DO. I COMPARED THIS TO THE TEN COMMANDMENTS AND STARTED WONDERING HOW THIS CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED. THERE HAD TO BE A WAY FOR ME TO DO THIS AS JESUS MY SAVIOR HAD ALREADY DONE.
WELL WHEN I FINALLY CAME TO THE END OF THE ENERGY OF MY OWN FLESH I UNDERSTOOD THE RAMIFICATION OF WHY I CANNOT DO THIS.
NO FLESH AND BLOOD CAN. THE FLESH AND BLOOD WAS CORRUPTED FROM ADAM AND EVE EATING FROM THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL (MASQUERADING AS GOOD.) PASSED ONTO ALL MANKIND THROUGH ADAM AND EVE IN CHILDBEARING. SO THEREFORE NO ONE COULD EVER BE PERFECT IN THE SIGHT OF GOD. THE SON HAD TO COME TO EARTH AS A GOD MAN, KNOWN TODAY AS CHRIST, TO REDEEM MANKIND AND CONDEMN ALL SIN INTO THE FLESH, SO THAT THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF GOD MAN CAN BE BORN AGAIN OF SPIRIT (GOD’S) THAT IS. BUT FIRST ALL SIN HAD TO BE CONDEMNED TO THE FLESH THROUGH THE CROSS (ACTUALLY A STAKE) YET NO MATTER ALL SIN WAS AND IS CONDEMNED TO THE FLESH PERIOD! BY THE LAST SHEDDING OF BLOOD THUS ALL SIN IN GOD’S SPIRIT ARE TAKEN AWAY NEVER TO SEE THEM AGAIN READ IT HEBREWS 9 ALL OF IT. THIS WAY GOD CAN COME TO LIVE IN YOU AND BE YOUR TEACHER FOR GOD CAN KNOW NO SIN AND THROUGH CHRIST FROM TAKING IT AWAY CAN LIVE IN YOU THE BELIEVER THE DAY YOU BELIEVED AND NOW TEACHING YOU THIS TRUTH AND ONCE YOU START DEPENDING ON YOUR INWARD MAN YOU SERVE THE LAW OF GOD, ROMANS 7:22 BUT READ IT FROM 7 ON, ASK FOR THE TRUTH AS YOU READ AND YOU WILL SEE IT. THIS INWARD MAN BROTHERS, SISTERS IS NONE OTHER THAN THE HOLY GHOST (SPIRIT OF TRUTH) THAT RESIDED IN JESUS BEFORE HE LEFT TO SIT AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD HIS FATHER NOW YOUR FATHER ALSO THE DAY YOU FIRST BELIEVED. SO NOW BORN AGAIN IS HELD ALIVE BY THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH HERE AND NOW, YOUR FLESH AND BLOOD CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST ON THE STAKE, TURNING THIS INTO A STEAK, PETER KILL AND EAT GOD HAS CLEANSED ALL THINGS, YOU ARE FREE, YOU ARE NO LONGER UNDER RULES AND REGULATIONS WHEN FOLLOWING THE INWARD MAN IN YOUR HEART.
Does this mean as Paul said that all things are permissible but not all things are beneficial? YES, now you decide talking to God. I know what my flesh and blood is capable of and I am sure you all are too. If you are not and still under the law and cannot accomplish it and are stressed out to the max. Die to yourself come alive to God with you cannot do it. And God will pull you out of the Dead Sea and breath into you the breathe of life everlasting. Then each day you will learn to walk by the spirit of God whom is Holy In you, day by day, learning to take no more thought and get bewitched as the Galatians did. Read my other writings concerning thought, when you believe; you are on your way to freedom. I finally jumped off that cliff (Spiritual) and God because God is real caught me in the palm of his hand, and now is carrying me everywhere I go, and I do not always go to the right places, yet God is and has always been faithful to teach what is beneficial and what is not. Never leaving you or forsaking you. It is us, by taking thought we go astray. So believe and take no more thought and you will be conformed to the image of Jesus. Take thought and you will eat off of that tree of good and evil masquerading as good. Praying for you all to see the truth that sets you free. Knocking out all those that prey upon you to use you for their gain here and now.
Love you all from the highest.

FAITHFULLNESS IS TRUSTWORTHYNESS ON BOTH SIDES AFTER SEEING GOD’S FAITHFULNESS, HOW ELSE CAN YOU RESPOND? TAKE ADVANTAGE OR APPRECIATE TO FAITHFULNESS YOURSELF IN RESPONSE TO GOD’S TRUSTWORTHYNESS

They would not be like their ancestors— a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.
For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
[ Righteousness Through Faith ] But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.
This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,
God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—
he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.
Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.
There is such a great cloud of witnesses prior to Christ and after Christ, and did you notice it is all by faith!!!!
So it is by belief, that produces faith, the? Is faith in what? We swallow food to live right? But is swallowing the mechanism by which we live here on earth? Yes it is, but if we swallow poison then we die, correct?
The same is in the Spirit, it is what we believe in, and have faith in. Since swallowing food will keep you alive physically, what would you need to swallow to live spiritually? So if you live by works, performing law(s) will you live? Living by works do we not stress out, wondering if we have done it right or wrong? Concerned about; making the rent, the food on the table, and having clothes on our backs. Who as in other people can we trust, for we all have deceived and been deceived at one point or another in our lives, therefore there is only one, one you can trust, and that is God the creator of this universe, known best through Christ, the only one that showed us all truth and miracles that proved this.
Now let us take a good look at Faithfulness.
15 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit —fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
So do we love only those that love us back? How can we call ourselves a believer if we only love those that love us back? Does not the unbeliever do the same, so how can a believer be any different than an unbeliever? Why then are we having divisions amongst us all, some say I am of Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness, Pentecostal, and on and on we go. What did Paul have to say about this to the Corinthians?
1 Corinthians 1:12
What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas ”; still another, “I follow Christ.”
Are you all listening?
Okay back to Faithfulness:
The just shall live by Faith; Romans 1:17
EX: An orange tree can only bear oranges right? Now the branches on that orange tree, do those branches produce the oranges on them? Or do they bear the oranges on them?
Now if the branch that comes from the tree, is not trusting in the tree to produce oranges in and through the branch, will the branch have oranges? So the branch (us being the branch) by itself can do nothing correct? Therefore the branch in order to have oranges, that are edible, must abide in the tree is this correct? So do you see now it is by Faith in God, it is responding to God and God’s faithful love he has for all that believe. This is and was done and shown through his son, Jesus Christ and by belief, you are made faithful as was the Old Testament Saints who looked forward to the redeemer Christ Jesus and we are looking back after the fact not forward to Christ Jesus’s finished work, new covenant that today we all are under the ones that believe that is.
So faithfulness resides in us trusting our heavenly Father to do in us what we cannot by our own flesh do or accomplish, we as Paul said need Christ, the Father, and the Holy Ghost our comforter, coupler to the three as one, Like ice, water, and steam are all still water just in different forms.
It really is all him and none of us, the more we realize this the more we can rest in whatever situation we are in. the more we can enjoy life as what Christ said he came to do was give us life more abundantly, which is the second part of John 10:10, take out the first part throw the emotional trauma away, and see reality, start enjoying life, even if you are homeless here on earth. When born here on this earth you are born with nothing, so everything you gain is profit, but rather let’s see it as a prophet. As a prophet you will profit, and I am not talking about money, I am talking about everlasting Spiritual life with God the creator of everything. Tell me what else could ever be more important than knowing the creator has got you smothered and covered? Do you still want to take this amazing grace for granted? Not me
Loving you to flesh death in the Spirit of your mind, being alive to God in the Spirit where there is no mistake ever.
Sunday, July 29, 2012
Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.
Do this everywhere you go trust in the Holy Ghost that lives in you from your belief in Christ, the finished work where all sins are behind Father’s back never to see again, through the last sacrifice and last shedding of blood. Hebrews 10:17, John 19:30,
There is no more forgiveness to be executed, for there is no more shedding of blood to be executed. This has (past tense) already been done at the cross of Christ.
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—
John 16:7-11 Unless I go away, the Advocate (Holy Ghost) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. (The power is and has been broken)
Hebrews 9:12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.
Who did Jesus obtain eternal redemption for?
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
Yes, all the creation, Christ through God did this for those that will believe
Hebrews 12:23-25 New Living Translation (NLT)
23 You have come to the assembly of God’s firstborn children, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God himself, who is the judge over all things. You have come to the spirits of the righteous ones in heaven who have now been made perfect. 24 You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel.
25 Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One who is speaking. For if the people of Israel did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger, we will certainly not escape if we reject the One who speaks to us from heaven!
Please re-read this wonderful gift of salvation from God the creator of all. Let us quit listening to man and looking for a man to listen to, lets seek God who through belief lives in you through the Holy Ghost the same Holy Ghost that lived in Jesus, who led Jesus. Seek this to lead you and therefore you will know the truth and you have the truth of the passage at the beginning of this letter
Loving you all as God loves you all unconditionally; you decide what is good for you, for all things are permissible, just not all beneficial, again you decide, for God just love you

"The difference between the impossible
and the possible lies in a
By - Tommy Lasorda
For Christ in a sense said this to his disciples before Christ went to the cross where from his death a new covenant was brought in, a new will. Hebrews 9:15-17. You see, a will is only in place after the person who made it is dead. I will not receive my mother’s will (covenant) until after she dies, and proof of that death is a must, therefore Christ was dead for three days before resurrection.
The above is the possible of the impossible that Jesus spoke of in:
Matthew 19:25-27 New King James Version (NKJV) 25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”
26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
So be determined to know God, forget about trying to prove others wrong or right, dive into the word yourself, see for yourself, seek our Father, Jesus’s Father through the scripture. Have only one purpose; to know the creator of all, and look back in history, Jesus did the best at this, Jesus showed us all through mighty miracles, the love he poured on us all, the prostitutes, the thief’s, the sinners, the ones that knew they could not do right, felt guilty for whatever they were doing that was wrong, yet were trapped for they needed money to survive and this has become everyone’s excuse today for whatever it is that they are doing wrong. Added on top of this today we are using alcohol, prescription drugs to temporarily relax, just to wake up the next day and do the same, never being free from our ailments. Here take this, or drink that and you will feel better, you do this and you do feel temporarily better, but you are never free from the emotion(s) that put you there in the first place. Troubles, heart-ache, and all anomalies seem to follow one around in themselves, stinking thinking sets in and Walla, you are under the emotional control of anger, depression, fear, and all the things that destroy you, this is the thief that came to steal, kill and destroy through your emotional traumas. John 10:10
How to get rid of it once and for all, therefore perfect love casts out all fear,
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love
Fear is the root you all. Did Jesus have any fear, yes it looked as if he did in the garden, praying heavily please Father if there is any other way, never the less your will Father not mine.
How many of us can do that? Now if we do this it is out of fear, and I am saying Jesus did not do what he did in the garden out of fear, but what he did was; through this the devil became convinced that Christ was in fear, so the devil went ahead with the devils’ plan to have him killed. Then when the devil through the powerful thoughts he planted in the minds of the religious leaders and Pharisees, the main thought had to do with job security, for no one was attending their place of fellowship, they all were seeking where this Jesus was at, the laymen going to their churches were not there to give their tithes and offerings, (was just tithes in that day) the clergy was going to be homeless out of money, and by the way the way they treated people behind the backs of others, they knew since the people had sort of turned against them, they would if they kept listening to this man Jesus shunning them calling them vipers, and saying their (the religious leaders)Father is of the devil if this were not true then they would have believed Christ. So it was job security from the religious, the Pharisees and the Sadducees of Christ’s day here on earth. The devils’ purpose though was he would lose the authority he had gained through deception to the religious leaders.
The whole law all of it was meant for Mercy, love your neighbor as self, loving God for who God is a wonderful loving one. Yet here is what happened the devil twisted it up in the minds of men as he did in the minds of Adam and Eve, for Jesus said: Matthew 22:37-40
New King James Version (NKJV)
37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
You here this you all the whole law that was given to the first chosen, the Hebrews, same as Jews, as Israelites, the law’s purpose was to show us truth and it did whenever anyone follows to the letter of the law it kills them and those around you. Jesus above verses and again Jesus was asked what is the greatest of the commandments:
The Scribes: Which Is the First Commandment of All?
34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Please notice: these two commandments are not in the Ten Commandments. These are the greatest of all the law. Are we doing this with all our different religious groups’ and names? Scripture comes to mind where Paul was doing his best to straighten out the misunderstanding that took place in the Corinthian gathering of fellowship that was not happening that way. What was happening after Paul left them, they received thoughts of we can do anything we want, since God in advance already through his Son has past tense forgiven us. So that is what they did they took advantage of grace.
Conduct at the Lord’s Supper
17 Now in giving these instructions I do not praise you, since you come together not for the better but for the worse. 18 For first of all, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. 19 For there must also be factions among you, that those who are approved may be recognized among you. 20 Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lord’s Supper. 21 For in eating, each one takes his own supper ahead of others; and one is hungry and another is drunk. 22 What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and shame those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I do not praise you.
Institution of the Lord’s Supper
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.
27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood[d] of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.
33 Therefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 34 But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest you come together for judgment. And the rest I will set in order when I come.
This is Paul teaching us to have compassion for one another and wait before eating and drinking for the rest of the fellow shippers, be of one mind loving one another.
But what has happened these scriptures have been taken out of context and made to be a get prayed up, get your sins forgiven session before taking and eating the Bread and drinking the wine. I tell you the truth if this were the case then no one is ever worthy, and never will be from their own selves. Remember the Question of the disciples how is it possible for anyone to enter the kingdom? Jesus’s reply was with man it is impossible, but with God (his Father) all things are possible. And this was made possible by Father through the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ, the operation of all this by his Father the creator of all. Man had and does not have anything to do with this, and never will. We are nothing more than vessels for God to use as we by free will ask God to possess us 100%. So that God gets all the converts and by us being out of the way, being just the vessel God gives us all the credit and we give God all the credit. It is a free rest win win situation.
Homwardbound, so just stay determined to know God and you shall. It starts with belief, and stay with believing determination, an attitude that says you do not care how long it takes, but that you will know truth the truth that sets you free, from this doggie dog world of hate, selfishness, and fear
From God who can’t stop loving you personally
