GOD HELP JESUS OR DID GOD DIRECT JESUS
Jesus did nothing or said nothing without Fathers direction.
Jesus gave them
this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father
doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does
So Jesus was showing us to depend on his Father, if we so
believe Jesus, then do I depend on Father or just Jesus to help me?
Are we to be dependent on Father or Jesus or both or are
both just one? Where does the Holy Spirit fit in then?
I personally believe all three are one just in different
forms like water is: water is water, yet there are two other forms of it ice
and steam, yet all just water.
Another analogy for this is the Egg:
There is the shell, the white, and the yoke it takes all
three to be called one egg, the egg is not complete without all three parts.
So using this physical analogy let’s bring home the
The shell = Jesus his Body, the one that we are translated
into from belief, receiving that we are forgiven at the cross, that there is no
more forgiveness to be executed on God’s behalf, one dies with Jesus back at
The White =
The Holy Ghost that comes upon you to reside in you, who brings the new life to
you after you have received you are forgiven back at the cross, that it is
finished, so now you are born again in the Spirit of God.
The Yoke =
God The Father who now sees you as a brand new Child of Him, because of Christ
at the cross, Father sees through Jesus were all sin has been taken away, thus
sees your sins no more, and
one’s reaction through being led now through the Holy Ghost is a doer of the love
of God, not a hearer of. A Godly Sorrow has now taken place in place of a worldly sorrow.
So today one just tells the truth period or is learning to do so if one so
wants to know God and have all things work out towards their Good. For God is
the Master and knows all free choices out in this world good or bad, so I am putting my trust in
God knowing God will supply all my needs as I work diligently in this world to
make a living. No matter what tragedy comes my way, I trust God somehow to see
me through as Noah, As Abraham, AS Jacob, as Jonah, as King David, King
Solomon, as Paul whom was Saul, as the 12 disciples, and as Job whom all
trusted God and God after much tragedy in each of their lives saw them through,for all of these persons stood
the test of evil trying to triumph over them, by delivering evil to them, but each
stood not in Law, but faith in God and exercised that faith, which is what
produced in each of them the obedience required by God. So are we all ready to go the
distance and be made whole even as seeing from God’s vantage point we already are
through Jesus Christ is Son?
So let us
begin today if we have not yet begun to depend on Father through his Son Jesus
the author and finisher of one’s faith 100% of the time no matter where we go
or what we do, and we will be guided into truth, and be a doer without
condemnation to us or from us to anyone else. Romans 8 there is therefore no
condemnation for those that seek after the Spirit of God, and forsake the flesh
through belief in God teaching you truth. God is now your truth from error separator,
sift all things through your heart where the hidden man of you lives, the born
No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know
the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.
and glory in the highest forever more!!!!!!
we think or what we know or what we believe is, in the end, of little
The only consequence is what we do"
belief always speaks louder than words. Even the demons in the Spiritual
warfare that the believers are in as well believe, but they have not put their
trust in that one that took away all sin at the cross nor have asked to be born
again in the spirit of truth God’s truth that he just loves you. So if I am
still in and of my flesh and help all that help me, love all that love me, and
scorn against others that are not a part of my organization, how then would I
or you be any different than the demons that believe, yet do not put their trust
in God the creator of all good. So if you believe, go past that and start to
trust. This is what God asks throughout the bible to trust God. I have not
heard of him saying figure it out, because God has got it all figured out, God
is just waiting for you, me and all to TRUST him, therefore action is in place
and they all shall know that you belong to God. Let me say that if I got guilt
that needs confession and I am afraid of the consequences from that confession,
what others might do or how they might react, or maybe even end up in jail.
For me to be
set free I myself would have to confess to whomever I needed to confess to. For
me in my walk, was the only way I ever got set free from quilt that haunted me.
Now if quilt haunts you, talk to God in prayer and God will lead to the truth
in what you should do, and it is up to you, God does just still love you.
since the believer is forgiven complete by God for the purpose of God to bring
back the creation of God redeemed, when one receives this that they are
forgiven, how can one not forgive others as well as seek forgiveness from
others that they did wrong, once one knows they are forgiven?
question is in place do I have a worldly Sorrow or a Godly sorrow? I choose a
Godly sorrow howaboutyou?
Corinthians 7 New International Version (NIV)
since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates
body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
2 Make room
for us in your hearts. We have wronged no one, we have corrupted no one, we
have exploited no one. 3 I do not say this to condemn you; I have said before
that you have such a place in our hearts that we would live or die with you. 4
I have spoken to you with great frankness; I take great pride in you. I am
greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds.
5 For when we came into Macedonia, we had no
rest, but we were harassed at every turn—conflicts on the outside, fears
within. 6 But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of
Titus, 7 and not only by his coming but also by the comfort you had given him.
He told us about your longing for me, your deep sorrow, your ardent concern for
me, so that my joy was greater than ever.
8 Even if I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not
regret it.Though I did regret it—I see that
my letter hurt you, but only for a little while— 9 yet now I am happy, not because you were made sorry,
but because your sorrow led you to repentance. For you became sorrowful as God
intended and so were not harmed in any way by us. 10 Godly sorrow brings
repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.11 See what this godly
sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves,
what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see
justice done. At every point you have proved yourselves to be innocent in this
matter. 12 So even
though I wrote to you, it was neither on account of the one who did the wrong
nor on account of the injured party, but rather that before God you could see
for yourselves how devoted to us you are. 13 By all this we are encouraged.
verily, I say unto you, He
that hears my word, and believes
on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not
come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. -
Is there any
work on anyone’s part in this verse? The only work I see is, open my ears and
hear, take my eyes off the world, listen, and breath, hear, God the creator of
all that is good, sent Jesus Christ into the world to redeem those in the world,
proof in the miracles that were done by him, through him by his Father, you
know the dove that descended on him as John the Baptist witnessed after
baptizing Jesus, and heard a voice say this is my Son in whom I am well pleased.
John announced your Messiah has arrived; the Levitical priesthood rejected
Jesus Christ as their leader, their way to the God. Now a lot of the Israelites
did accept Jesus, seeing the miracles that he did, that no other man had ever
done, this to me as I read his story of what he did tells me he is far greater
than anyone else that has been here on earth, a Superman if you will. Just not one
that came to physically fight, but spiritually he did fight against the
consciences of the guilty, by exposing them with their own guilt, letting their
own consciences convict them.
Why did they
go against Jesus Christ? He performed miracles to the people. To the people
that were suppressed, he freed them, they chased after him, they wanted
healings, and they got them.
Do you see
the legacy Christ has left, and thus bringing us to his Father the one that
sent him? Do you see in that verse at the beginning of this post, where it
states to believe on whom? Yes
the belief is not on Jesus per say it is on the one that sent him, the
Father of Christ, All Christ did was bridge the gap between man and God, by
being declared righteous by God his Father whom sent him into the world to redeem
the world. So once you believe on this fact, then place your trust in God the Father, for this is whom by belief in
Christ that you have been translated to. Notice in all the letters
written to the people, upfront was Paul and the disciples that Father was
included in each greeting. How many of us are saying thank you Father as well
as thank you Jesus. I am afraid for me, you and all others if you or I do not
include Father. If I stop at
Jesus and do not include Father, then is it possible that the evil forces, the
Spiritual warfare can masquerade as an angel, as if to be Jesus. This
happened in the beginning to Adam and Eve, even though it was a serpent that
did this deceit. Deceit is
still going on today, so I say each of us discern in our own hearts what truth
is and what is not.For
since you do believe, God who resides in you through the Holy Ghost will separate
truth from error in you, and you shall know the truth, the truth that sets you
free from bondage. Let’s see scripture where the Father is included at
the beginning of each letter
Romans 1 New
International Version (NIV)
1 Paul, a
servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel
of God— 2 the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy
Scriptures 3 regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life[a] was a descendant
of David, 4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God
in power[b] by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. 5 Through
him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience
that comes from[c] faith for his name’s sake. 6 And you also are among those
Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.
7 To all in
Rome who are loved by God and called to be his holy people: Grace and peace to you from God our Fatherand from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Corinthians 1 New International Version (NIV)
called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother
2 To the
church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be
his holy people, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our
Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:
3 Grace and peace to you from God our Fatherand the Lord Jesus Christ.
Corinthians 1 New International Version (NIV)
1 Paul, an
apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the
church of God in Corinth, together with all his holy people throughout Achaia:
2 Grace and peace to you from God our Fatherand the Lord Jesus Christ.
Galatians 1 New
International Version (NIV)
1 Paul, an apostle—sent not from mennor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who
raised him from the dead— 2 and all the brothers and sisters with
3 Grace and peace to you from God our Fatherand the Lord Jesus
Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to
rescue us from the present evil age,according to the will of our God and Father,
5 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 1 New
International Version (NIV)
1 Peter, an
apostle of Jesus Christ,
elect, exiles scattered throughout the provinces of Pontus, Galatia,
Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, 2 who have been chosen according to the
foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to
be obedient to Jesus Christ and sprinkled with his blood:
peace be yours in abundance.
Praise to God for a Living Hope
3 Praise be to
the God and Fatherof
our Lord Jesus Christ!
1 That which
was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes,
which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning
the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and
we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared
to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may
have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
4 We write this to make our joy complete.
You see this
is not all but in every one of the writings the Father, which is God is
included but Jesus is shown as the way the truth, and the life unto Father,
Father and Christ are included, from what I see you can’t know one without the
other. Christ again is the bridge to the Father it is through Christ that we
get to talk to Father.
today on believe that Father sent Jesus unto the world to redeem those who come
to belief in him unto his Father whom just loves you!!!!! Who has through his
Son, taken all sin out of the way to make you Holy and perfect in his sight,
who does no sin, so through his Son Jesus you are made perfect through trusting
Father made from belief as Holy as his Son, thus you being a Son also crying
Is this good
news or what, well either you believe or you don’t it is up to you. Once you
believe then tell Father you now trust him and do this no matter what trouble
comes your way, this is how I proved that I trust him, for I stayed trusting in
the midst of adversity like Job, like King David and many other Saints that put
their trust in The Father, known as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Oh
and am also still in the midst of adversity, but I have no fear for God will
see me, and you through for Christ overcame the world, and I, and you are in
Christ so therefore you and I have overcome the world as well while in the
midst of adversity.
So say thank
you, even if you are about to be homeless, or not, exercise trust, and somehow
by God all your needs shall be supplied, through you exercising trust, thank
mankind has tried to do this for way too long, and has not to this day ever
accomplished this. How can one denature selfishness, it is in one’s nature? We
are born with desire to live, not willing to die. And from what I see without dying
(dying to self) there shall not be any life. Are we born here on earth actually
dead? But when we are born we have a life, we have heart beats, blood running
through our veins, as we grow up we have millions of thoughts running through
I wonder if
thoughts control us. Would that depend on what thoughts we accept or do not accept?
Do feelings produce thoughts or thoughts produce feelings? Again that would
depend on physical or spiritual.
Physical as like
a cut on the arm sends a feeling to the brain, and we react accordingly hurt.
So in this case a feeling produces thought thus pain.
is produced as a result of thought, as a man thinks so is he. Before any of us
can have Spiritual pain, we have to have derailing thoughts, such as anger. Can
any of us be angry without angry thoughts? Try it I dare you, it is impossible
to be angry without angry thoughts. This is how we all are designed form birth,
with a selfish nature to boot, making it impossible to denature ourselves from
evil which is selfishness.
So who can
or what can? We are not here just to die are we? If that is the case, then what
is the point of living? Something had to create this earth, this universe; it
is History we can learn from and there is in history a place and a time that there
was a man named Jesus Christ that walked this earth, did more than any man has
ever done in physical form, raised the dead back to life, caused the blind to
see, the lame to walk. What an impact this man made. Do the miracles alone prove
that he was from God, sent by God? What was his purpose was he to redeem us
back to God taking away all sins of the world through the last sacrifice and
shedding of blood?
So I am
saying that this is the only way to having our evil nature that we are born
with denatured unto new life, where we exchange our flesh life for his
spiritual life, thus being recreated in God’s Spirit. One becomes willing to
die physically and in essence therefore is dead physically, but is made back to
live physically by the power of God through the Holy Spirit of truth. Thus one
is born again alive in the spirit of God, loving all as you now see you are loved,
thus denatured by the power of almighty God, and this will not come to pass
until one believes or reckons as a fact that they are dead to sin. Romans 6:11
Therefore you all this would be Jesus, the only one
that ever pleased God the Father entirely. And is the only one that could ever

Jesus the mediator between man and God. Having God seeing
you as perfect as Jesus,

after the resurrection, showing us this new life in him. Then after he ascended he sent

through the Holy Ghost unto you the believer, Father is one’s teacher through
the Holy Spirit of truth, no longer do the ones that believe need anyone else
to teach themfor
through reception of the Spirit of truth we have fellowship with all the Saints. Through one man Jesus Christ those
that believe, are made Holy and without blemish from Father’s vantage point and
is teaching you the believer how to walk circumspectly in him. So as you are Holy from Father’s
vantage point because of Christ’s finished work and resurrection, coupled with
his ascensionwe that come to belief as
well as those that believe have reception of the Spirit of truth, that teaches
you from inside out.
blessed so walk as you are blessed
1 John 3 New
International Version (NIV)
3 See what
great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of
God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it
did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will
be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,[a] we shall
be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 All who have this hope in
him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
faith in Jesus the mediator between man and God, you are made holy and perfect
in him. So when you see yourself as pure because of Christ, you will be pure,
through this belief, and therefore you will have purified self just as you are
does not please another, one usually moves on, no friendship is gathered,
unless this happens:
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says
to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one. A quote from C.S.
thinks there is something to gain, by going here or over there, then one goes. Why not go just to go, I
do not have to be pleasing, act all trustworthy, hide truth good or bad, do you
do this to be pleasing?
I go to a
dinner a holiday dinner, and for years at this dinner each year there is this
dish of food that you do not like, and every year you are encouraged to eat of
it, you do out of being pleasing to the one that made it and being respectful
to the dinner party. You know it is tradition and in fear you just stomach what
you do not like, never tell the truth that you do not like it.
Is this you
no big deal right, it was me? What about on a much larger scale? You are here
to learn right, but are we not taught to shut up. You say but I have questions.
We ask and are told the answer and we don’t agree with the answer in our own
Spirit, something is amiss ever been there or are here now? Do you think that
since we all have been taught to be pleasing, that that is where the problem
Look, we lie
to the other; because we do not want to hurt the feelings of the other, you
know this would be loving your neighbor as yourself right? Any of you ever
thought this way without ever realizing it?
So I lie to
you and tell you I liked your casserole but really I did not. Now I am sure
hearing this would be pleasing to you at the time right? Now years go by we
have been friends all this time and you finally find out that I never did like
that casserole, and you have made that many a times for me ever since. Are you
pissed at me? Yes of course you are, I would be as well. Do you see how
everyone gets out of alignment with others and God, through telling little
white lies to keep from hurting the other(s). Is not this how the tooth fairy,
Santa Clause, Easter bunny and many other fables have misdirected truth into
Now let us
go back to the first day of eating that casserole. If you had told the truth
that you did not like it to begin with, then the problem of later would have
been stopped correct?
So now you
and I are faced with, I tell you what I think about your food and tell you I do
not like it. You respond with an attitude of hurt, and let me know you are
upset over me telling you this. I see you are upset and I say WOULD YOU RATHER
Folks do you
get it, when there are no lies, there are no cover ups. I remember a cartoon a
long time ago, I think it was Marmaduke. Marmaduke was a talking dog, and the
dogs master was talking with Marmaduke, and Marmaduke was saying something, the
kid replied hey wait a minute didn’t you say something different last week, the
kid detected the lie, and Marmaduke replied hold on let me check my notes, as
he was reaching in his back pocket.
There is an
old saying that goes like this:
Oh what a
tangled web I weave when I first set out to deceive! So if I want to be
pleasing then I want to tell the truth in all things, even though society does
not accept this, the world and its lying ways does come against one that does
tell the truth. So I am left with a choice be pleasing to the world and tell
little white lies or have faith in God and God alone through Christ the Author
and finisher of my faith along with all that believe in Christ.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to
God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently
seek him. - Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
Now just as
well the world is also a rewarder of those that diligently seek the things of this
world, so if I am mixing God and world, I ask amiss and do not get so read
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you
should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault,and it will be given to you.
6 But when you ask, you must
believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea,
blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from
the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
See it also in the tempting of Christ what the devil said
Matthew 4 New
International Version (NIV)
4 Then Jesus
was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After
fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him
and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
4 Jesus answered, “It is written: Man shall not live on bread
alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.
5 Then the
devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the
temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is
command his angels concerning you,
will lift you up in their hands,
so that you
will not strike your foot against a stone.
answered him, It is also
written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’
8 Again, the devil took him to
a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their
splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said,
“if you will bow down and worship me.”
Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your
God, and serve him only.”
11 Then the
devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
8-11, ask God in your heart, and say thank you Jesus for this, and now teach me
the truth of this for me and let me see how evil has crept in all over this
you gone to church, a meeting with friends, did things nicely with expectations
that you are being good so you should be rewarded or since you have behaved so
well you will be rewarded? We all see the kingdoms of the world and their splendors
do you not? So only you know in your heart along with God whether your heart is
with God or against God. If I decide to take the kingdoms of this world and all
its splendors, I will have a good time not caring for anyone else but myself.
Those that I am good to is not because I care for them or that they care for
me, Money is the motivator for both.
Tell me is
this pleasing to you and the world, being caught up in its traps, losing your
own soul, having no real love, no real faith inGod only claiming to!
For me I
exclaim get the _________________ away from me evil as Christ said, for I
desire to only worship God and am thankful God is patient with me to learn how
to trust God at all times in all measures, how about any of you all? To serve
God the creator of all and the Father of Christ is a long time bout because the
evil energy forces do their best to keep one from entering his courts with
thanksgiving and praise as King David finally proclaimed after his long time
Now I am not
saying it is bad to have money lots of it. It is not bad, for all things are
clean of by itself. It is what one does with it that turns it bad or good. Look
there were and are a lot of material wealthy people and whatever they do with
their riches is between them and God period. Job was rich lost it all and still praised God can you do
the same, then look at how God protected him afterwards and gave him riches
beyond anyone’s dream of today. Abraham was wealthy as well, and there are many
others the same as them today they put God first in all things, better than
that saying is God is first, family second, and job third. No how about above
that GOD is MY LIFE! So no matter where you go God is with you, leading you to
do whatever it is God wants you to do because God has become your life no
matter where you go ready to give an account for your joy in season and out of
22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2
“The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his
son. 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to
tell them to come, but they refused to come.
8 “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding
banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. 9 So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet
anyone you find.
11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he
noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. 12 He asked, ‘How did you get
in here without wedding clothes, friend?’ The man was speechless.
13 “Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and
throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing
14 “For many are invited, but few are chosen.”
I know many are called and it
says few are chosen, yet I know that it is God's desire that all change their
mind from unbelief to belief, I am thankful because to my dying
day here on the earth, I never earned it, and it is undeserved,
yet God chose to do what God chose to do, so in my thankfulness, thanking god
for this, and trusting for him to lead through the Holy Ghost, You know I am
pretty much at the point that I never want to leave the throne of grace,for in there is no malice what so ever, safe and secure
in the arms of Father, yet
God needs us as vessels to God's glory, so God put us back here as ambassadors,
representing the joy, peace, and righteousness in the Holy Ghost. You see I found out that the
believers home is heaven, citizens of, yet we are back here in this
body that died with Christ on the cross as he did, then raised back to live by
God the Father via the Holy Ghost, quickening those
that believe back to life here and now, loving all whether they believe or not,
being led by the Holy Ghost
absolutely amazing this grace that is given to each and every one of us that
believe. So it is now just up to each person to just ACCEPT it as is and end up
having life abundantly, no matter what condition you are in here on earth as
Paul said being content in all things, we all have the same as Paul, for it is
the same Holy Ghost that even Jesus sent to all that believe.
all as God does unconditionally, how can one not believe when they see this
love of God that while we were yet sinners he died for us, and thus gave life,
through the resurrection, a born again you?
pinch hitter swings again and it is out of the park, a home run. Can you
imagine how the devil felt when Jesus rose from the grave and Jesus said those
keys are his, and so the prince of this world has been defeated, by the resurrection,
and is God the Father is awaiting to put the rest of the enemy under his
footstool, that is one’s flesh into his flesh, dying to one’s flesh thus coming
alive to the Holy Spirit of truth, transferred from this worldly kingdom to God’s,
for he said it many times that this world is not his kingdom, if it were he
would have never went to the cross and took away the sins of the world. All the
angels of God would have come and fought. So believer ask and see where you are
through belief yes a citizen of.
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his
appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to
for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it
fearlessly, as I should.
This is for
all believers, read them as if God is saying this to you personally.
Does anyone like or want to be controlled? In this world is
that not what is going on, a battle for control? Do some things need to be
controlled? Laws do need to be in place right?
If there were no stop lights, to control traffic, or laws to
obey for traffic, then there would be a lot more accidents and deaths than
there already is, yes?
So instead if viewing laws as commandments, being a control
freak, you obey because you must or else you suffer the consequences. Now with
the Law of Moses the consequences of disobedience were death.
With traffic laws you disobey, you pay fines for them, like
drinking and driving, but there is still the consequence of death, if one drinks
and drives, even if you only had one drink, and you could cause the death of
another, by disobedience to the law.
There is an old saying I heard growing up that Laws were
made to be broken. But truthfully Laws were made for you and your neighbors
benefit, they are put in place for your protection such as traffic laws.
You see when you are not fighting being controlled or trying
to control, then you are free to see the reason for such a law as no drinking
and driving. Do you not know that whenever I drink even one drink and get
behind the wheel of a car and drive, I am at that moment playing God, now if I
take the life of another while I have drank, how would you or I feel the rest
of our lives?
The same is true texting, talking on a cell phone, being
angry at your children, your spouse, while driving. Please you all let us wake
up and when we are on the road let us be considerate of the other drivers and
when we run into those that do not care move away from them, trust me do not
engage it is not worth it. There are tares amongst wheat and this is why laws
need to be in place. They are put there for a reason, so obey them it is for
your own good that you do.
So again get out from underneath seeing the law as a
commandment, see it as a great benefit for your safety.
By this grace being freed form under the curse of the law
that when it flows through me as a commandment it kills me, I am freed from the
curse of the law.
So what do I do with the law?
Romans 3:31New International Version (NIV)
31 Do we, then,
nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.
You see one becomes in agreement with the law and therefore
obeys it for this one understands the purpose of the law.
Now let us look back at the Law of Moses and the purpose of
the Law: Ten Commandments Exodus 20:3-17
3 You shall have no other gods before me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or
in the waters below.
5 You shall
not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God,am a jealous God, punishing the
children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those
who hate me,
6 but showing love to a
thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
7 “You shall not misuse the name
of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his
8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.
9 Six days you shall
labor and do all your work,
10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On
it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your
male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your
11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth,
the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore
the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
12 “Honor your father
and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is
13 “You shall not
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not give false testimony against your
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not
covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or
anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
So all these that are put in as commandments, showed Israel
year after year that they could never be perfect in and of themselves trying to
do so year after year. They were always reminded of their sins year after year,
by having to kill an innocent animal, shed that animals blood in order for
their sins that they had committed in that prior year from the last sacrifice
in order to be forgiven again and go out and try all over again until the next
year and sacrifice again.
Do you get the
picture of the Law of Moses under the covenant that was put in place? Can you
put yourself in one of their shoes and see from their perspective trying to get
forgiven year after year.
Do you see today that there
is no sacrifice in place, and no more shedding of blood?So then why are we as Gentiles
going over to our place of worship and asking for forgiveness, when there is no
more sacrifice and no more shedding of blood for forgiveness. It is done it is finished, The
forgiveness issue is over all are forgiven from God the Father’s vantage point,
through the cross of Christ. But brothers and sisters no one is saved through the
forgiveness, nor does anyone get anymore forgiveness from God’s vantage point,
it is finished John 19:30, a new covenant is in place today Hebrews
9:15-17, and once you see this then God sees one’s sins no longer.
Hebrews 10:17 New King James Version (NKJV)
17 then He adds,
“Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.
But now do we take advantage of this, God forbid, don’t you
know God’s grace is meant to
lead you to trust God and say no to unrighteousness Titus 2:12
New King James Version (NKJV)
us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly in the present age,
Now while Jesus was walking this earth, the religious leaders
were always after to trap Jesus and dis credit him. So one day Jesus was asked
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in
the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God
with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the
first and great commandment.
Now go back
and read the ten, is this first and great commandment in the ten? No this First
and great commandment is the sum of the entire Law all commandments sum into
this one, and at first it is a commandment unto a belief unto you love God this
way out of a willing heart for one day you, I will see how much he does love me,
you and the only response is loving him back with all one’s got. Then the second
is much like the first one love one’s neighbor as you see that he already loves
you, regardless of whether your neighbor loves you or not it is unconditional
already for you so how can one not love as you are loved?. Most say as you love
yourself, well some do not love themselves at all therefore could they love
their neighbor then? So then what I would need to see is how much I am loved
and according to how much one sees that God loves them, is when they or I could
only love back unconditionally as God already does, shown at the cross.
So it is not a matter of you controlling or being
controlled, it is a matter of the love of God provided for you
at the cross, beginning with you are forgiven for that was the last sacrifice
and shedding of blood for forgiveness for the entire world. But no one is saved through forgiveness. That is the
beginning unto life everlasting; the forgiveness being forgiven took away the disease of sin which was
death.So now you go to
the cross of Christ and in your own soul die with Christ at the cross and then
wait for God to bring you back to life as he did with Jesuswho is now sitting on the right hand
of God resting waiting for you to join him resting from your works to get salvation,and therefore having this new
life because of your trust for God to do the work in you now today and forever.
