Perfect Law


PERFECT LAW

 

James 1:25

25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

John 8:32

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 8:36

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Romans 3:24

Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Romans 5:18

Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

Romans 6:18

Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Romans 6:20

For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

Romans 6:22

But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

Romans 8:2

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:32

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Corinthians 2:12

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

Galatians 5:1

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Peter 2:16

As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

Okay am I seeing this right, I hear free, liberty, and no doings of self, yet we are doing, yet not of self, sound pretty controversial?

Galatians 5:24

And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

 

So freely how this is, by belief in what God has done or are we to work at it? Make it better and bitter while we are trying to make it better?

What a straight betwixt we are in yes?

I want to do good and try hard to do so, and yet something always gets in the way and I get angry and do not like it, right?

Could this happen this way if I was walking in the Spirit of God, instead of flesh that I want to do right yet can’t from time to time.

Is God trying to tell us something, maybe give up on the flesh effort and start to trust God to keep us from anger, instead of us trying to stop it, that never works, and when we think it is working we get knocked down as so not to be proud or boastful yes?

2 Corinthians 12:6-10 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

 

6 For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.  7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.  8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.  9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Just some food to process between God and you, trusting God to reveal the truth to you

distractions that cost


 

He / She who gets interrupted, in their spiritual journey in finding truth is like hearing a loud crash, and running to the scene, like having a bird in the hand and see two in the bush, in going after the two the one that was in the hand escapes.

What is the Christ-life like, performances or a personal relationship?

Is one a fool who can’t give up what he / she can’t keep?

What is better, to use, the Christ – life for self-gain, or humility?

If the kingdom of Heaven is within, then why are we looking out? And what are we looking out for?

Believing God, a blessing or a cursing what does it feel like?

Definition of what love is; anyone?

 

The truth shall make you free John 8:32. So what will error then do?

If you are in bondage, would you then be in error? So what stops one from becoming free? Would that be error?

So are you free? Are we to be set free through the Son or not? Then what is the problem for me and only you can answer for you?

Could it be, every time I try to be good, in that trying I find myself not doing as I intended?

And when It looks good as if I am doing what I set out to do, and think upon that do I not, (maybe not you) get proud and boastful, only to fail again?

So wondering about this, thinking what must I change in order to do what I want to do?

I mean I have discovered that in me, my flesh that is, I can’t be perfect and I am aware of this, so am I, you and all the world are just to accept this and just do as best we can or give up on self-trying?

Now if I give up on self-trying, then would I not be left up to uncontrollable circumstances? I mean I am doing pretty good am I, you or you over there not? I mean I don’t steal,  I pay Tithes, I go to Church, I am all around a pretty good guy right? So if I give up this self-effort of doing, what will happen to me, you or you over there?

Will I be left to uncontrollable circumstances or can I trust God to do in me what I am trying to do in self?

Who (if I just trust God through Son) will be in the lead?

Who do you think need to be in the lead, self or God? How is it that we as people have thus taken on such a chore as to be good, when we can’t be, at least perfectly? I know I can’t, anyone else?

Did Christ not say this to his disciples, it is impossible for man to be perfect and enter the kingdom of God? Matt 19 about the rich man that walked away sad, the disciples asked Christ at that time how is it possible for anyone to ever enter Heaven. This rich man had obeyed the Law from birth on, and yet fell short as I know I do and have done anyone else?

Do we all really see our need to be free to be one in God and seen as perfect from Father? I think a lot of us do and are stuck in the efforts of self-flesh, deceived thereby the flesh in trying to do good and can’t. Are we not all taught this to stand back up and try again to trust God to thank God and ask for more forgiveness each time? Seeing there are many out there that we admire and they appear as if they got it together, and they in a small or large way become ones role Models do they not?

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DISTRACTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you may be seeing them (the distractions) as to fool us and work out our own salvation in fear and trembling as Phil. 2:12 states never reading further and seeing what verse 13 states?

Therefore could this be the reason why we do not rest here and now today here on the earth, being too busy caught up in doing right, making a living, supporting our families, and so on and so forth?

What does worry cause? If I am concerned to do what is right and whether I do it or not and someone comes along and says I am doing it wrong, when in all I, you and anyone else has been loving their neighbor and not harming them, Then who are anyone else to decide for me other than God? I mean won’t God personally tell you and me? Don’t we all know in our selves when we do wrong to our fellow man? Is it between God and you, and only those you harmed if you harmed anyone else?

I personally Love you all as God has shown me how this Love is deeper that the Mississippi river, done through Son, Christ.

Honwardbound, GODDOESJUSTLOVEYOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

devil has no real power without


 

Note: in Job Devil can do nothing without God's permission for God's purpose?

Job 1:6-12 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. 7 And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8 And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9 Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

12 And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.

 

 So no one wants this to happen to them do they? And if it does are we going to still praise God, even in contradictions and trust God to reveal to us if needed to be revealed to us.

 And if we are to know all things as God, even Christ did not know all things, only what was given him. And that was and is a lot. Yet no one knows the day, the time or the year of God's grace to end and judgment to begin, not even Christ knew this.

 So if we are to know all, then Faith is made void, and no need to have Faith in God the Father of Christ or Christ's finished work for us,

 So if man anywhere in the New or Old testament could walk perfect ever, then Christ's death is useless along with the resurrection of, would have never been a need, and is written to show us this by the way of the Law

 

Hebrews 7:11-12

 

Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

 

11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron? 12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

 

 I need Father and gained him through Son Christ via the cross at the resurrected Christ in the Spirit of Father where today is the only way Father is served in Spirit and truth (John 4:23-24)

 Anyway the revelation is to me flesh that fights the Spirit of God. And that is my self flesh that is not redeemed. so daily I consider it dead as with Christ's death and alive to God

Romans 6:11

 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 And since this is true in the Spirit of God and not true to flesh, as when one pinches themselves, the fight wages on, as we are not dead yet. When we are to consider (reckon) ourselves as to being dead to flesh when we are not actually literally dead.

 

 

 And this world diagnosis us as crazy to think this way, when the word says to think this way.

 Anyway love you and a last note:

 If one is drowned by the rain can the rain trouble that one anymore?

 So as it is the same with flesh if one is dead to it, can it trouble one anymore?

 Such as when Paul describes the woman with a Husband in Romans 7, that as an allegory for us to die to Law, is to die to flesh efforts, and trust God in place of that being now married to Christ, who will do in you what you could not by the Law do in self and tha tis be perfect ever.

 So by Christ we are made perfect to Father to give us new life and to sustain us that new life in the Spirit of Father as Christ was led so are we.

Colossians 1:22 in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

Just some food for thought to chew on, and possibly be set free through Faith in God’s finished work through Son

flesh fighting Spirit of God


Why is it not so easy for me to think that any given person's walk with Christ, me included, is being held back by any factor other than themselves?

Flesh against the Spirit of God ever since the fall of Adam and Eve

 

 

Genesis 6:3

And the Lord said my spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

Genesis 6:12

And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

6.Genesis 6:13

And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Genesis 6:17

And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and everything that is in the earth shall die.

 

 

Genesis 7:21

And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:

 

Except for Noah, Noah’s Wife, Noah’s three Sons and their wife’s, along with the animals in pairs.

Genesis 9:11

And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there anymore be a flood to destroy the earth.

Genesis 9:15

and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

Genesis 9:16

And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

Genesis 9:17

And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

Wow you all, has the world ever been flooded again? I mean all of it at once? So God has kept God’s promise to this day so far right? Even though flesh is still not pleasing to God as was before he flood. All except Noah and Noah’s family along with the animals that were on board right?

So now here we go further in History, in showing us the problem since Adam and Eve became aware of flesh. That this is what is in the way. It has been passed on from Generation to Generation and so far we have one Covenant, made by God not to flood the whole earth again.

Man ever since the fall, has been making choices as to go with being selfish or considerate and compassionate to their fellow man.

Genesis 15:18

In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

Was Abraham faithful? In what was he Faithful in?

Romans 4:9

Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness

Romans 4:12

and the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

Romans 4:13

For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

Romans 4:16

Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

Galatians 3:7

Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

Galatians 3:8

And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

Galatians 3:9

Abraham. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful

Galatians 3:14

that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Hebrews 11:8

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

Hebrews 11:17

By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

Romans 8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:4

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:5

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Romans 8:9

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Romans 8:13

For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

1 Corinthians 5:5

to deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

2 Corinthians 3:3

forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

2 Corinthians 7:1

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Galatians 3:3

Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

Galatians 4:29

But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

Galatians 5:16

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Galatians 5:17

For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

Galatians 6:8

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Philippians 3:3

For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

1 Timothy 3:16

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Hebrews 12:9

Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

1 Peter 3:18

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

 Peter 4:6

For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

1 John 4:2

Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

1 John 4:3

and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Homwardbound to you all to discern truth from error

So are we to live by Spirit o0f God or our flesh we were originally born with?

life in Spirit new, dead to sin and alive to God


CHRIST CAME TO GIVE US NEW LIFE IN THE SPIRIT

 

No he did not come to destroy the Law, rather fulfill and he did do just that, (Matt. 5:17) then Christ went to the cross, and as he was about to give up the ghost, he yelled:

John 19:30 when Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

 

 What was finished, did he fulfill all Father sent him here to do or not? He said it was to fulfill the Law and Prophets, not destroy, so what did this death accomplish?

 

Hebrews 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

Hebrews 9:16 For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

Hebrews 9:17 For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

 

 So what did this death of Christ do for us?

Colossians 1:22 in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

 

 So if the death did that for us what will the life do?

Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

 

 Transferred from death to life

Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

religion and spirit worship


Mick Mooney

 

Jesus didn't come to make the ungodly godly. On the contrary, he came to make the religious un-religious.

 

 It's only after one dies to religion, with all the judgments, pointing fingers and lists of laws and regulations that frame it, that one can truly become alive to the radical message of love and grace Jesus proclaimed. It's only then one can actually come to understand the true heart of God.

 

 This new way (where we leave behind religious affiliations to enter into a new divine reality) is not bound to a message that begins and ends in words and written codes; rather, it is a spiritual reality that transcends words - it is a message that comes alive not in the form of letters, but through the indwelling of God's Spirit within us. It moves us beyond the 'theory of love' religion offers, into a 'living and active love' that permeates every part of our life.

 

 Religion will make you fall in love with information - Christ will make you fall in love with life. Chose life, let love become more than words, let it break lose and change things in your world.

Jesus paved the way, thettruth and the new life in him, by the resurrection after the death

Jesus said this; “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me…” (John 14:21).

 

This is very clear. Obeying Jesus’ commands is proof that we love Him.

 

What commands?

 

Is Jesus referring to the Ten Commandments or the 613 other commands that are listed in the Mosaic Covenant? Or did He have different commands in mind?

 

The writer of Hebrews stated, “For when there is a change of the priesthood, there must also be a change of the law.” This verse will help us answer this last question.

 

The New Covenant is a changing of the guard. The Levites were the stewards of the Old Covenant. They had specific duties and responsibilities all anchored to the Law of Moses. Jesus’ death on the cross ended those duties. He was the once for all sacrifice for sin. He fulfilled the Old Covenant in its entirety.

 

Today, we live in the New Covenant. Jesus Christ is our high priest, appointed to be so by God the Father. With this change in the priesthood, there was a change of the law.

 

The new commands are these.

1.Believe in Jesus Christ (I John 3:23)

2.Hope in God’s promises (1 John 3:1-3)

3.Love God and people. (John 13:33-34, Romans 5:5)

 

Faith, hope and love constitute the law of the New Covenant.

 

God writes these laws on our hearts and in our minds. This is the first promise of the New Covenant. God empowers us to live out faith, hope and love through His Spirit.

 

The laws of the Old Covenant were the responsibility of the people to Israel to keep. They didn’t have it in them to do so. Neither do any of us

Jesus said this; “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me…” (John 14:21).
