It is a Good Day to Die
It is a Good Day to Die. Die to Yourself. Everybody has to Die to be free from Doing Evil. Do you want to die? Are you free? You are free if you are dead and yet are alive. You must die to yourself. The enemy of yourself is not only satan, christians, non-christians, anti-christians, politicians. Your enemy is yourself. And the only way to defeat your ememy is to kill the evil part of yourself. “For he who has died has been freed from sin.”-Romans 6:7–NKJV And Jesus said Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men. Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man(Jesus) also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father-Mark 8-Luke 9-NKJV.
Yes when you are being a True Christian-Truly Born Again-Truly Born From Above-Truly Born Anew: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new 2 Corinthians 5-NKJV. if indeed you have heard Him(Jesus) and have been taught by Him(Jesus), as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness Ephesians 4-NKJV.
It is the part of ourselves that is not under control of The Holy Spirit that must die. It is the only way to find peace and happiness. I warn you: do not under think what I say: you may think you are there when you are not. In a world were the blind are endlessly leading the blind do not follow the blind because they are christians. Do not follow them because they are good christians or good people. A blind man may be able to see the forest but not be able to see the trees. A blind man may be able to see Jesus Christ but not be able to see the Holy Spirit. A Blind man may be able to see much of The Truth but not nearly enough of The Truth.
The church is full of teaching about The Holy Spirit but the teaching has not been effective. The teaching is a hollow representation of who The Holy Spirit is and what The Holy Spirit can do. If you think the teaching has been great then it only shows how great the real teaching is. It only shows the great things that are missing. The Holy Spirit is the christian life and anything less is a shallow misrepresentation of real christianity. A shallow misrepresentation of what God, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit are waiting for you to be.
The power is shocking. The power to be unfazed by evil while still admitting that you do and think evil-though you if you are a True Christian you seek with all your heart and mind to stop doing and thinking evil. Where is the evil arrogance in this? Hypocrisy is when you say that you do not do evil-that you do not sin. “If we say that we have no sin(if we say that we do not think and do evil), we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us….we make Him(Jesus) a liar, and His(Jesus) word is not in us.”-1 John 1-NKJV.
Being free from evil does not mean that you no longer do or think evil. Being free from evil means that even though you still do and think evil you are no longer bound by evil, no longer a slave of evil, evil is no longer the one who tells you when to jump. knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him(Jesus), that the body of sin(evil) might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin(evil). For he who has died has been freed from sin(evil) (freed from the oppression of sin(evil) inside yourself).”-Romans 6-7-NKJV. You were once alive without Christ, but then you discovered that you were really a rotting corpse. You were once alive without The Holy Spirit, but then you discovered that you were really a rotting christian corpse who could only possibly get into heaven by the skin of your teeth. “If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”-1 corinthians 3-NKJV.
It is a matter of dieing to yourself-denying yourself. “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”-Luke 9-NKJV. It means melding yourself into God so that you no longer exist alone but you do exist with God. It is becoming a part of God as the trinity is all part of each other: one but separate. All literally having the same mind while having thier own minds. Deny yourself as an individual without Jesus. Deny yourself as being alone. You cease to be alone. You become one with God. Deny yourself hatred. Deny yourself anger. Deny yourself paranoia. Deny yourself worry. Deny yourself judging personal sins. Deny yourself condemning personal sins. Deny yourself pretending that you are God. But only deny yourself through the Holy Spirit. You will only destroy yourself denying yourself through your own power and strength: When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first-Matthew 12-NKJV. That is what happens to you if you try to be good without Being Jesus, Doing the Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit.
Until you die to yourself you will be divided against yourself: But He(Jesus), knowing their thoughts, said to them: Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.-luke 11-NKJV. Do you think that you are not divided against yourself as a christian? This is a wicked and perverse generation. It is a wicked and perverse generation that is not desperately hungry for more-spiritually-from God. And we as christians are part of it. Everyone wants to think of themselves as being on the top of the mountain when they havent even seen it or don’t remember it or they love this world more. For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works-matthew 16-NKJV. You will be rewarded acording to your works. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, loses his own soul, and is himself destroyed or lost. Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul-Luke 9-Matthew 16-NKJV. But people lust after satans ways: Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men-matthew 16-NKJV.
Does everybody need rules? There are rules at work, rules at home, rules on the road, rules from society, rules at church, and Religiously Correct rules. We have rules for our children, rules for our wives, rules for our husbands, rules for our friends. If we bend or break a rule people are disgusted and want to punish us. But who needs rules? People who are evil need rules in an attempt to keep them from doing evil. Children need rules. Children need rules because they don’t know right from wrong. Adults should not need rules. Adults should already know right from wrong and do what is right. Adults should be mature. But since adults aren’t mature and do not do what is right there are not only rules but also laws. So the world becomes a giant sign that says do this and do not do that.
Christians put there peers under massive rules rules. There is an obsessive belief in the church that without rules christians would just run around doing evil. That christians are just dieing to do evil. That if only there wasn’t a rule stopping them they would do evil.
Why the rules? Is it because christians would not know better if the rule had not informed them? Is it because christians are just like non-christians and can only do what is right if there is a rule? Yes, we need the power of God to do what is right but do we need a rule to tell us what is right? Are you so foolish having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?-Galatians 3-NKJV.
Christians must be mature.. you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection-Hebrews5-6-NKJV.
Does a christian need rules? A christian walking in the flesh-a carnal christian, yes, this christian needs rules because they are a child. A christian walking in the flesh is like a non-christian. They don’t have any other way to do right or wrong but by the hearing and doing of rules.
But do not christians Being Jesus, Doing the Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit have something better than rules? Something that a non-christian couldn’t possibly do? Yes, we as Born Again christians do have something better available to us than rules. We have The Holy Spirit. We have The Holy Spirit waiting to work with us.
Have Born again christians have made it to the top? When you become born again you now have to walk in the Spirit. You have to learn very much. You have to learn to do True Good, learn to be Truly Good, learn to think Truly Good and learn to Teach True Good. It is a lot of work.
But at the same time you must remember that you can now make it. You can be the it girl. Your can be a star. If you are a Born Again Christian and you are actually Being Jesus, Doing the Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit then you can make it to the top! You can now move up the mountain or down the mountain. When you were born again you were taken by The Holy Spirit of God to the mountain. From the mountain you can see a lot more than you could ever see before. Now you cannot stay still-you will now climb up or slide down.
Now, as a born again christian, most tell you that you need do nothing but always be watching your step and the step of others. That you must always be nervous and paranoid. That you must always be watching for a sin around the corner waiting to pounce on you. When all the while God is a little more than capable of guarding your heart and steps.
But in reality you must make improvements to yourself. And if you have The Holy Spirit then Jesus will give you enormous assistance. You must let The Spirit flow. Let The Spirit flow through you. Relax. Take it easy. Let The Spirit tell you. Let The Spirit guide you. Like the wind flowing through your soul. The wind is in you and guides you where Jesus wants you to go and where you want to go: where you want to go if you Truly want to Learn Good, Be Good and Do Good. Jesus said: Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again(born from above, born anew). The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.-John 3:1-NKJV.
The Mountain Of Love. The love that filled you when you became born again-this love is the mountain. But maybe you tried to get higher, but only found yourself going down. Now is the time to get back to climbing. You don’t have to struggle with the climb-Jesus will pull you up the mountain if you partner with The Holy Spirit!
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control-Galatians 5-NKJV. The Fruits of the spirit are qualities that you can gain from The Holy Spirit. Like to not be afraid-fear is the opposite of peace-have no fear-no fear-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 1 John 4-NKJV. Fear, Pride, paranoia, anger, hate, resentment, jealousy-these are in contradiction to True Chrstianity. These thoughts and emotions lead to judgmentalism(judgeing a persons personal life sins)-which is evil. We must make sure that we are not straining out gnats and swallowing camels. It would be much better if we swallowed the gnats than if we ate the camels. And anything other than love is a camel. Jesus said: Blind guides! who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!-Matthew 23-NKJV. Straining out a gnat is upseting people over small things of no eternal signifigance. It is the opposite of True Love. Anything other than Love is evil. And this is Love: “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails-1corinthians 13-NKJV.
Pride, Anger, hate, resentment, fear, paranoia, jealousy, and judgmentalism-none of these come from love. And if love is not the most important thing to you as a christian then you have a long way to go and a short time to get there! What is love? Is love taking a minor detail in the bible and convincing yourself that it is a matter of life and death-blowing these minor details out of all proportion-turning gnats into camels? Is love making sure that everyone has the same political views that you have? Is love condemning people who fail to follow the ten commandments or even want to follow the ten commandments? Are you a humanist or a follower of judaism? Are you an intellectual, an elitist or a pharisee? Woe to you, scribes(an intellectual and an elitist-believing they should rule all) and Pharisees(A self-righteous, sanctimonious person-hypocritically pious, hypocritically devoutly religious and an elitist-believing they should rule all), hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters: justice and mercy and faith. Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.-Matthew 23-NKJV.
Love suffers long, bears all things, endures all things: You willingly suffer for the evil and errors of others and yourself. You go through this suffering being patient and kind to the person causing you to suffer-even if it is you! Love does not parade itself, is not puffed up: if you know something great that few others know, do not make the evil mistake of thinking or acting like you are somehow superior to others-you are not. You just know something they do not-so tell them-then you two are equal-no matter how they act on the information. No matter what great things you know or what great things you have done-or what evil you have not done, or the money and things you have-not one of these things make you superior in any way. You are still an evil doer that is either saved or not saved. Love does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked: Why should you be upset with anyone? Everyone you see is either going to heaven-in which case you should just rejoice with them regardless of the evil or disagreement-they are your brothers and sisters. Or they are going to hell, in which case they should have your compassion and tears, for they are no better than you, and yet they refuse to repent and they have decided to go to hell. Why should you be angry with someone who will suffer for all eternity? Love thinks no evil: You have only good in your heart and mind-you do not grudge the evils of others. No judging-no condemning: not in your mind or your mouth or your heart or your actions. Love never fails: If you have pride: you will fail. If you judge a persons private life: you will fail. If you have anger: You will fail. If you hate: you will fail. If you resent: You will fail. If you have fear: you will fail. If you are paranoid: You will fail. But if you have the love that can only come from Jesus through The Holy Spirit: You will never fail!
And again concerning non-christians-Why are you as christians so interested in getting non-christians to be like christians, think like christians, act like christians, believe like christians. After all-they are not christians. So what in the name of Jesus Christ are you doing? Or should I say: If you, being a Christian, live in the manner of non-christians and not as a Christian, why do you compel non-christians to live as Christians? Have they been Born Again?-or do you think that if they follow the ten commandments they will go to heaven? Is this Judaism and not Christianity? Did Jesus live and die in vain?
Why are we so disturbed by society and what it does? They are not christians so why should they be like christians? Are we trying to turn or children, friends, loved ones and the rest of society into model citezens instead of Christians? Do we want them to do, be, and think good and go to heaven-or for them to just look good, appear proper, be approved of by all, have a good life and go to hell? Are you one of the going to hell in a handbasket crowd?
Christians are hated by society for the wrong reasons-for unchristian reasons. Christians should not be hated because of political viewpoints-because of abortion or because of gays or because of creationism. Christians should be hated for saving souls and making stronger christians. Saving souls scares them and making stronger christians terifies them. The bottom line is that non-christians should hate Christians because non-christians as non-christians are selfish but Christians as Christians love them and everyone so deeply.
Instead non-christians hate christians because non-christians believe christians hate them. And the non-christians are correct: Christians do hate them. Christians say: hate the sin and not the sinner. What business do christians have hating at all? Hating is pride and pride is the root of all evil. A Christians job is not to hate sin but to love those who do, be and think evil. And Christians also do, be and think evil-just like them-but hopefully less and less often. For Christians must stop doing, being and thinking evil or a Christian will destroy themselves. Doing, being and thinking evil is against the central programing of True Christians-because a True Christians core programing comes from The Holy Spirit inside of them. If a Christian can’t see that they themselves do, be and think evil-and other christians do, be and think evil-how in the name of Jesus Christ are Christians going to properly see evil at all. And if Christians can’t see that Christians themselves do, be and think evil how can Christians then Truly Love non-christians who do, be and think evil?
Christianity is not about fearing sin and the devil: Christ has overcome sin and the devil. How pitifully weak non-christians and satan see Christians because Christians fear what has been defeated. From the non-christian viewpoint Christians are the most pitiful liars. Christians say Christ has defeated sin and yet Christians spend their time fearing sin(evil) and fighting for the ten commandments. Christians say that the devil has been defeated but Christians are seen as being in great fear of satan.
What satan has done to the Christan church SHOULD be of great concern to Christians, not what the devil is doing outside the church. Christians must correct what is wrong with Christians and thereby correct what is wrong with the church-then Christians can save non-Christians. If this correction takes place then the world will be weak to the Christians great power of Love. What are Christians instead looking for? Are Christians looking for non-christians to bow down to the Christians great political power? Doing, Being, Thinking and Teaching good is all that is needed to defeat all sin, evil and the enemies of God-not politics. Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh(man’s methods)?-Galatians 3:3-nkjv.
Why do Christians expend their precious time and energy on societies wickedness? Model citezins do not go to heaven. Patriotism does not make you good or save your soul. Yes, indeed, this is a wicked and perverse generation, but so are the people in the church. But Christians make a horrendous error in not understanding that we-as Christians-are also wicked and perverse until Christians are filled with the knowledge, the peace and the Love of The Holy Spirit-and are now Walking in the Holy Spirit-doing good-being good-believing good, teaching good. For it is a wicked and perverse generation in the church also because Christians are constantly distracted by things that are trivial or evil.
How do you become Born Again?
He(Jesus) came to His(Jesus) own, and His(Jesus) own did not receive Him(Jesus). But as many as received Him(Jesus), to them He(Jesus) gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His(Jesus) name-John 1-NKJV. The phrase “His own” refers to the Jews. (the Jews: the original chosen people of God, Jews by blood, the followers of Judaism, followers of moses and the ten commandments.) Those who receive Jesus are no longer jews and no longer non-jews but are now Christians. RECEIVING Jesus-BELIEVING in Jesus-Believing in the NAME of Jesus all these MEAN BELIEVING JESUS-it means receiving The Holy Spirit and Walking in The Holy Spirit-it means becoming able to do, be, think and teach what is Truly Good and doing, being, thinking and teaching what is Truly Good. If you receive Jesus Christ and believe in His name you can become one with God. Think about it-God Himself will be your master and Jesus will be your friend and The Holy Spirit will be closer to you than any person could possibly be! Jesus said:You are My friends if you do whatever I command you-John 15NKJV.
How do you receive Jesus? First of all Jesus must come to you before you can receive Jesus. Think of it as Jesus coming to the front door of your house. What will you do? Talk to Jesus through the door? Not answer the door and hope Jesus goes away? Open the door but leave Jesus standing outside? What will you do? Let Jesus in but leave the door open with Jesus standing in the doorway? Shut the door but leave Jesus standing by the door? Invite Jesus in to sit down? What if Jesus wants to stay? Will you find a way to politely tell Jesus that you’re busy or it’s late and it’s time for Jesus to leave? If Jesus still does not leave will you kick Jesus out? Physically throw Jesus out? Call the police and have Jesus escorted out or arrested? Do you want Jesus in your house 24 hours a day-seven days a week watching everything you say and everything you do? Going to work and to the store with you. Jesus always there. Jesus Always talking with you, Jesus answering questions, and Jesus comforting you! And if you are in trouble Jesus has the power to solve your problem. And Jesus also has a lot of powerful friends.
Where is Jesus in your life? Is Jesus outside of your house, inside, or is Jesus so far away that you think Jesus would never come there or come back? How do you get Jesus to come to your house or to come back to your house? Understand that satan is trying very hard to distract you-remember satan doesn’t want Jesus around. You must want Jesus around more than satan wants Jesus away from you. Realize that you think and do evil. If you do not realize that you think and do evil then satan will tell you that what you are thinking or doing is not evil at all and you will believe the devil-you will be deceived. God is waiting and more than willing to forgive all your evil. Jesus suffered and died for your evils so that YOU will not have to suffer and die for them.
What you have to do is Love Jesus for what he has done for you. Think of anything evil you’ve done(and you have done plenty of evil-every day)-the evil thing you did added to the suffering that happened to Jesus close to 2,000 years ago. Yes, God knew 2,000 years ago every sin(evil) you would commit. Jesus has already paid the price in full for your sins(evils). Accept this fact and Truly Repent(True Repentance: to be horrified and sickened by your own evil causing your stopping this evil you do). The Holy Spirit will then enter you, you can now have peace because you know that you are accepted by God. You know that you are accepted by God because The Holy Spirit is inside you and because now the main thing you seek in your life is to do, be, think, believe and Teach what is Truly Good-Christianity. The house of Jesus is your house and your house is the house of Jesus. What you have now done is believe in His name! You believe that you do evil and that Jesus died for your evil and through the power of The Holy Spirit you stop doing these evils.
Who gets Born Again
They were Born Again-who were born, not of blood(race), nor of the will (by the desire-descision) of the flesh(not by your will-desire-descision), nor of the will(by the desire-descision) of man(by the will-desire-descision of other people), but (by the will-desire-descision) of God.”-John 1-NKJV. For God says “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.” So then it(salvation) is not of him(people) who wills(wants), nor of him(people) who runs(tries), but of God who shows mercy Romans 9-NKJV. The phrase who were born refers to Born Again. In order to become a Christian you do not come out of the womb again. You are not reincarnated. You will not be saved because your family or ancestors are christian, or because you are of the proper race, or because you and everyone else believes that you are a good person or a christian. You will not be saved because you want to be or because someone else or everyone else wants you to be saved. You will not be saved because you try or have tried to be saved(you do not try-you do it-just do it). You will be saved because Jesus has selected-chosen you out of the people in the world to be saved and you respond by True Repentance(True Repentance: being nauseated by what an evil person you are and you change-not try to change-you actually change-through the power of The Holy Spirit-not through your own power). You will be Born Again and Filled with The Holy Spirit because it is what God wants-not because it is what you want or other people want. And God wants you to be saved! If you refuse God’s offer of the gift of salvation you are saying to God that His Son-Jesus-suffered and died for your sins but it means nothing to you-who cares-so what. “Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?”-Hebrews 10-NKJV. Jesus Loves you-do you not want Jesus to offer you the gift-a position-a job in the world of Jesus-the army of Jesus-the dimension of Jesus? But you must believe it and accept it and do it! It cannot be a part of your life but must be the whole of your life. Your passion, your hunger, your desire must be Being Jesus, Working For Jesus and Walking Inside Of The Holy Spirit.
You indeed must be born again in order to see and enter the kingdom of God: Jesus answered and said to him, �Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.� Nicodemus said to Him, �How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother�s womb and be born?� Jesus answered, �Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. �That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” �Do not marvel that I said to you, �You must be born again.� �The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit-John 3-NKJV. First we must know what the kingdom of God is, and where and when the kingdom of God is. “Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; “nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”-Luke 17-NKJV. The kingdom of God is here now. It was always here and always will be here. But nearly all of the people cannot see it or enter it. Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7-NKJV. To see the kingdom of God or enter it you must be Born Again. Or Born from Above or anew-they all mean exactly the same thing. The kingdom of God is an alternate world, an alternate universe, an alternate dimension that exists inside of this one. Do not wait for science or scientists to prove or disprove what I just said. Neither can one person prove or disprove this to another. You will have to see the Kingdom of God for yourself and enter it yourself. And then that universe will become more real to you than this one. You enter the kingdom of God when The Holy Spirit of God enters you: Jesus said: the Spirit of truth(The Holy Spirit), whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him(The Holy Spirit) nor knows Him(The Holy Spirit); but you know Him(The Holy Spirit), for He(The Holy Spirit) dwells with you and will be in you-John 14-NKJV.
The kingdom of God is under the rule of God. The people in the kingdom of God are willingly ruled by God through The Holy Spirit. And the people in the kingdom of God will never die. If you are Born Again you have both seen and entered the kingdom of God. You were changed, your former self died, you became a new person. “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”-Galatians 2-NKJV. It was a metamorphasis like from a caterpillar to a butterfly. A butterfly can try to be a caterpillar again. It can try to think like one, act like one, refuse to use it’s wings, pretend that they aren’t even there. But the butterfly will still be a butterfly, yes a very bad butterfly, but still a butterfly just the same. For the butterfly there is no going back. �That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” You are flesh and by flesh you came into this world. And it was only by The Holy Spirit that your spirit was brought into the kingdom of God. Everyone is both flesh and spirit. Born Again christians are both flesh and spirit. But for someone who is not Born Again, their flesh and their spirit both reside in this world alone-this dimension alone. A Born Again christian’s flesh still is in this world alone. But their spirit now has access to another dimension as well as to this dimension. And when you are Walking In The Spirit you are walking with access to the other dimension-the kingdom of God. When a Born Again Christian is not walking in The Spirit they will still have seen and entered the dimension of God, but they are not currently using their ability to access the kingdom of God. They have become cought up in the world and it’s evil ways or have become satisfied with stagnation-having settled for less than what they must be-to be as Jesus or have become disillusioned to the point Christianity means little to them.
What should a christian do and can a Christian lose their salvation
Of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing-Hebrews 5-NKJV. The author suddenly breaks from this important discussion of Melchizadek because the author realizes that those hearing and reading this letter are likely disinterested, getting bored and/or confused. He is upset that christians become satisfied with a mediocre faith and therefore they really feel that they don’t need to learn and understand more about christianity. This attitude is prevalent in todays world and makes it very difficult to go on with God to the greater parts of the christian life-to be part of The Power Of The Holy Spirit.
For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food-Hebrews 5-NKJV. The people that he is talking to-possibly you-have for a long time believed themselves to be saved. But instead of being able to Truly Teach others about Christianity they haven’t yet fully understood their own salvation; their own christianity. Instead of being mature True Teachers they need to once again be Taught the basics because they don’t fully implement the basics in their lives.
For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil-Hebrews 5-NKJV. Christianity is about Truly Correct Thoughts, Truly Good Thoughts, Truly Good Actions, Truly Good Teachings. A christian who depends on the the old testament, the ten commandments, their own judgement or the judgement of others in order to have good thoughts and good actions is on milk. And The New Testament is Teaching Christianity but still do not use The New Testament as a rule book. Solid food is eaten by those who discern good and evil thoughts and actions through The Holy Spirit. You don’t have to be Born Again in order to try and be good by following the laws, the ten commandments and rules of the old testament. But you do have to be Born Again in order to have The Holy Spirit be the strength and guide to Good thoughts and actions. This is the difference between religion and christianity. As Paul said: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law(the ten commandments and rules), or by the hearing of faith(The Holy Spirit)? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh(the ten commandments and rules)? Have you suffered so many things in vain(in vain if you still are followers the ten commandments and rules). Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law(the ten commandments and rules), or by the hearing of faith(The Holy Spirit)-Galatians 3-NKJV. When a person is Born Again it is a beginning in The Spirit. The hearing of faith is listening to The Holy Spirit and doing what The Holy Spirit says. But if you are trying to follow the ten commandments and other rules of the bible-the works of the law-then you are replacing The Holy Spirit and living in the flesh-anyone can do that-but only a Born Again christian can Walk in The Spirit.
Therefore leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection-And this we will do if God permits-Hebrews 6-NKJV. Elementary principles of Christ are such as: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If we are still worrying about, struggling with or committing evils such as this then you know that you are still on milk, or if you are like a non-christian-concerned about the ten commandments-you are in need of milk. We need to go on to perfection which only comes through Learning what Christianity is and living in The Holy Spirit.
Not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment-Hebrews 6-NKJV. The elementary principles of Christ are merely the foundation of the building that we as christians need to be constructing. Most of us as christians spend our time working on nothing but the foundation. If we still spend our time needing to repent of our dead works-which are the things that we do that does not matter to God-or repenting of evil-or we continue to have doubt concerning Jesus and Christianity, then we are working on the foundation. If we argue or worry about how to baptize, or about laying on hands, or whether or not people are resurrected or judged, or whether or not christians can speak in tongues, or whetherr there is a rapture or a tribulation, or whether a christian can lose their salvation, or other basics of christianity then we work on the foundation.
For it is impossible-if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance-Hebrews 6-NKJV. It is impossible: cannot be done, God has not and will not ever allow it. If they fall away-to fall away: to leave something that you had. What is it that they had that they left? They were filled with The Holy Spirit when thay were Born Again and then they left. They left the Filling of The Holy Spirit but The Holy Spirit didn’t leave them. The Holy Spirit is still there. Renew-to do again something that you already have done. Repentance-when we were Born Again we repented of our sins(evils) as The Holy Spirit came inside of us.
If a Born Again christian no longer is filled with The Holy Spirit you might think they have lost their salvation and The Holy Spirit because The Spirit is no longer strong in them. It is impossible for them to repent and get their salvation and The Holy Spirit back because they have not lost their salvation and The Holy Spirit. They may have left their salvation and The Holy Spirit but their salvation and The Holy Spirit have not left them. It is a foolish waiste of time to try to get your salvation back again because you didn’t lose it, what you did was you stopped Walking In The Holy Spirit: Walking In The Holy Spirit is something you can get back. But do not decieve yourself-if you do not TRULY want to be Walking In The Holy Spirit AGAIN then you probably never Truly had The Holy Spirit at all-EVER. Walking In The Holy Spirit is intoxicating. Walking In The Holy Spirit is like being inside of Joy. Walking In The Holy Spirit is like being inside of Love. You must listen: If you have experience Walking In The Holy Spirit-you WILL want to get back-and you WILL want to get back NOW!!!!!
Yes: It can be difficult to Become Born Again or to Start Walking In The Holy Spirit or to Get Back To Walking In The Holy Spirit: you have to want it-you have to want it more than anything else!!!!! It is not something you do on a whim!!!!! Yes: Jesus has to choose you-but if you want it more than anything else-Jesus will choose you!!!!! And what is the it you must want more than anything else?-You must Truly want To Truly Be Jesus, To Truly Do The Work Of Jesus and To Truly Walk In The Holy Spirit more than anything else-You must Truly want To Know Truly Good, Be Truly Good, Think Truly Good, Believe Truly Good and Do Truly Good more than anything else.
Who are they (if they fall away)?
For those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come-Hebrews 6-NKJV. Partakers of the Holy Spirit-Hebrews 6-NKJV. If they fall away-Hebrews 6-NKJV-the they is someone who has received The Holy Spirit, someone who is Born Again, someone who is joined with God and all other Born Again Christians, someone who shares The Holy Spirit with Born Again Christians: someone who IS a True Christian.
Since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame-Hebrews 6-NKJV.
The author is saying that it is impossible to get your salvation back if you have lost it and the author is saying that if you have lost it you never Truly had it(Been Born Again) to lose. But you might think that you have lost it when you have not lost it at all because you are no longer Walking In The Holy Spirit.
Anyone who is Born Again and then tries to be Born Again-again humiliates Jesus and all christians because you are saying that the crucifixion of Jesus was not good enough, that God gave you something that you could lose. That Jesus must be crucified again for you because the first crucifixion was not good enough, that it didn’t take. You are either still a christian or you never were a christian-EVER.
For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it(Having Been Taught True Christianity), and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briars, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned(someone who is Taught True Christianity but fails to decide to become Truly Born Again)-Hebrews 6-NKJV. The Rain is The Holy Spirit. A person Walking In The Holy Spirit bears the True Fruit of Jesus and is therefore drinking in The Rain because you are good soil, you are Born Again. The Holy Spirit-The Rain-mostly bounces off a person who is bad soil-not Born Again. So the writer of Hebrews is warning anyone who does not bear the True Fruit if Jesus to check themselves. If they have never been filled with The Spirit then they are not saved and never were and deceive themselves and others that they are Christians and that other unchristians like themselves are christians.
UNCHRISTIANS: they are like the undead. The undead think they are alive, so does everyone else-but they are dead. Unchristians-they think they are christians and so does everyone else-but they are not christians.
And the writer of Hebrews is also saying that a True Born Again christian who has fallen away is just backslidden-is someone who has in the past been filled with The Spirit but is now NOT walking in The Spirit-this fallen away-backslidden christian is so much like a non-christian that it is difficult to tell them apart by their thoughts and actions. The scary thing is that a fallen away-backslidden christian is often going to church and they and everyone else thinks that their christian state is just fine-and even put them in postitions of authority.
So the writer of Hebrews is saying that you need to grow as a christian and stop acting like a non-christian or a christian baby. Stop being a baby, walk in The Spirit, and your thoughts and actions will bear the fruit of Jesus. If you do not grow as a Christian you backslide: slide down that mountain. You might wind up at the mountain base looking up.
But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner-Hebrews 6-NKJV. in this manner-Hebrews 6-NKJV-Even though the author is warning people that they might believe they are Truly Christians when they are not Christians at all-the author is confident that most of them or all of them are indeed Truly Christians-just backslidden. That they will start again to Walk In The Holy Spirit. And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises-Hebrews 6-NKJV
For if we sin(do evil) willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace-Hebrews 10-NKJV. If you believe-in your personal life-that what Jesus said and did is no big deal-meaningless-stupid-does not apply to you or does not apply to you right now-so you just continue the same way as before-without Truly Repenting or not ending your backslide-then you now have no place whatsoever to go to escape hell. Christianity-Jesus is all there is in order to be good. If you do not like it-too bad-there is nothing else you can do to escape. Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying; who can understand it?” When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complained about this, He(Jesus) said to them, “Does this offend you? There are some of you who do not believe(some people in the church that appear to be christians but are not). Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.” From that time many of His(Jesus) disciples went back and walked with Him(Jesus) no more.(some followers-disciples-who seemed to be True-dedicated-left Jesus because they did not much approve of something Jesus said) Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?” But Simon Peter answered Him(Jesus), “Lord(Jesus), to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered them, Did I not choose you-John 6-NKJV.
But recall after you were illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings: you were made a spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations, and you became companions of those who were so treated; for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven.
The just(the people Truly working for good and to be good) shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My(God) soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who draw back to perdition(hell), but of those who believe to the saving of the soul-Hebrews 10-NKJV.
jesus christ friend or god
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God-John 1-NKJV. It only takes a little honest common sense to agree that the pharase “the Word ” is referring to Jesus Christ, as we can see from the following verse : “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us-John 1-NKJV. The phrase “the Word was God.” is referring to the fact that Jesus Christ is God-He’s much more than a holy man, a prophet, a wise man, or a good man. When Jesus was called “good” by someone this is how He responded: “Why do you call me good? No one is good but one, that is, God-matthew 19-NKJV. Is Jesus saying that He is not Good? No, Jesus is not saying that Jesus is not good. Is Jesus saying that Jesus is not God? No, Jeus is not saying that Jesus is not God. What Jesus is saying is that if you believe that Jesus is good then why do you not call Jesus God? Because only God is good.
The phrase “the Word was with God” is saying that Jesus was also with God. Jesus is God and Jesus is with God-both at the same time. How can this be? Can you be yourself and be with yourself both at the same time? You could if you were completely joined in thought with two other people. The three of you would be separate, but you would also be one. Your thoughts would be their thoughts. This is the trinity. But of course the trinity of God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit is far greater than what three people could possibly ever be.
We also read about the trinity in Genesis: “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness-Genesis 1-NKJV. If there was only one of them why would god say “us” and “our”? The answer is that there was three of them-The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost. And we read in 1 timothy: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory-1 Timothy 3:16-NKJV. Yes, Jesus is God!
He(Jesus) was in the world, and the world was made through Him(Jesus), and the world did not know Him(Jesus). He(Jesus) came to His(Jesus) own, and His(Jesus) own did not receive Him(Jesus)-John 1-NKJV. The people whom Jesus created instead hated Jesus, ridiculed Jesus, and killed Jesus. Who did Jesus create? You. Do you owe your creator anything? Just your life-your existance.
No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him-John 1-NKJV. What this verse means is that no person in this dimension has ever seen God. No man in the old testament had ever seen God. But Jesus Christ has seen God The Father. Jesus has conversed with God face to face. Jesus Christ is intensely close to God The Father. So therefore what Jesus has to say is far superior to what anyone else has to say and to what anyone else thinks christianity is.
�No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven-John 3-NKJV. No one has been in heaven and talked to God personally and then came down here-into our dimension and told us about God-accept Jesus who came down and told everyone about it and then went back.
Jesus referred to himself many times as “the son of man”. Jesus used this phrase as an awesome, wonderful clue as to who Jesus is. The phrase “the son of man” comes from the book of Daniel: “I was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like the Son of Man(Jesus), Coming with the clouds of heaven! Then to Him(Jesus) was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him(Jesus). His(Jesus) dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away, And His(Jesus) kingdom the one Which shall not be destroyed-Daniel 7-NKJV. It’s more than a clue, Jesus is actually telling them who He is. It was-and is-critical in the Ministry of Jesus that He not directly tell people Who He is. Because it was-and is-critical that people figure out for themselves who Jesus is. If you tell people who Jesus is they do not believe you anyway, they have to find out for themselves-with an abundance of clues. But just the same we must preach the gospel in the hope that people will face the fact that they are evil, and that they can be forgiven for their evils because Jesus Christ died for their evils, and that they can become good. But having The Holy Spirit inside of you is Truly the only clue you need in order to believe-to know.
�And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, �that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. �For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life-John 3-NKJV. Jesus makes a comparison between Himself, His crucifixion on the cross and the following event from the old testament: “….and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way. And the people spoke against God and against Moses: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.” So the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you; pray to the LORD that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived-Numbers 21-NKJV.
The main reference that Jesus is making is to this: “and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” Jesus is saying that everyone that has lived and is living has been bitten by the snake of evil. So therefore everyone is dying. And that you must look to Him, Jesus Christ, to be cured for the illness that evil, the snake, has given you. That you must look to Jesus Christ and His dying on the cross in order to get the cure for the disease of evil. Once you have been inoculated for the disease of evil you will be Born Again and now have the ability through the power of The Holy Spirit to fight off evil inside of yourself and in other people.
The only way to live and to live eternally is to be Born Again. Jesus is saying-come with me if you want to live. So don’t be a girly man. If you are not Born Again, and you think your living-well, your not, your just dying. And if you are Born Again but you are not Living In The Spirit you are as though you were one who is dying. Why would we want to live, think and feel like those who are dying when we are not dying at all-this would be a defeated Born Again Christian life.
And what is believing in Jesus Christ? That you believe that you commit evils, and that Jesus suffered and died for those evils and God descides to give you The Holy Spirit and then you Walk In The Holy Spirit-that is believing in Jesus Christ. That you are Truly sorrowful for the fact that every evil that you have committed and every evil that you will commit added to the pain and suffering of Jesus when Jesus died for those evils. You want to apologize to Jesus personally because you added to His suffering. It is a great thing that Jesus did for you, He saved your life and suffered the punishment that you deserve. If you do not think that you deserve horrible punishment then you are lost. But Jesus is looking for you, all it takes is for you to want to be found. And like a lost sheep you need to cry out “I am evil, I’m going to be horribly punished, Jesus please save me!” And if you are sincere, your heart is true, Jesus will save you-Jesus will choose you. Jesus will rescue you from your punishment to come.
Jesus is your friend.
Jesus said: Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He(God) takes away(If you are Truly Born Again you WILL bear Fruit); and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit(God Teaches you so that you will be better at Being Jesus, Doing The Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit). Abide in Me, and I in you(You must be one with Jesus). As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing(you cannot do or be good unless you are Being Jesus, Doing The Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit). If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. If you keep My commandments(the commandments of Jesus-not the ten commandments), you will abide in My love. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends(If you are a friend to Jesus you will lay down your life-your desires-your plans for Jesus). You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit. If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you(If a person does not Love you then they hate you). If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you(If people do not hate you for being a Christian then you are not Being Jesus, Doing The Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit). He who hates Me(Jesus) hates My Father(God) also(and anyone who hates someone who is Being Jesus, Doing The Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit hates Jesus and God also). But when the Helper comes(The Holy Spirit when you are Truly Born Again), whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He(The Holy Spirit) will testify of Me(Teach You how to Be Jesus, Do The Work of Jesus and Walk In The Holy Spirit)-John 15-NKJV.
Jesus the Light of the World
In Him(Jesus) was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light(Jesus) shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it(Jesus)(evil people find Jesus annoying-upsetting for the darkness hates the light-the darkness is destroyed by the light-so the people in the darkness refuse to understand the light). That was the true Light(Jesus) which gives light to every man coming into the world-John 1-NKJV. The world is nothing but darkness. In this darkness there is only one Light-Jesus Christ. Jesus created us all. If it were not for Jesus none of us would even exist. Jesus is The Light, and even though Jesus is our creator most people look at The Light and do not understand it or even know what it is. The Light is life and without The Light we are all the walking dead. When we see the Light we must walk into The Light. Most people are afraid or confused and walk or run away from The Light. The Light shines into your soul and lets you see the evil that is inside of you-and those in tune with Jesus and The Holy Spirit can see the evil and the good inside of you. So we either confess the existance of this evil and repent-(repent: ask God for the strength to never do this evil again or even have this evil in our minds again-the evil being replaced with The Holy Spirit and good things to think and do.) or a person will run away from this Light. They do not want to know about this evil inside of them, but what you do not know can destroy you. Walking in The Light is the True christian life. As long as we walk in The Light God will regularly reveal the evil inside of us to give us the opportunity to repent. When we walk in The Light The Holy Spirit will give us the power to stay in peaceful happiness-thinking and doing that which is good.
The Law-the ten commandments and rules
But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law(the ten commandments and rules)-Galatians 5-NKJV.
For the law(the ten commandments and rules) was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ-John 1-NKJV. The law(the ten commandments and rules) came to the jews through moses and establishes the religion of judaism. The Holy Spirit and True Knowledge came through Jesus Christ and establishes True Christianity. It is critical to know and understand the phrase the law. the law: all of the rules, regulations, commandments and ordinances found in the old testament including the ten commandments. The following scriptures show that the phrase the law does include the ten commandments: For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, “You shall not covet-Romans 7-NKJV. You shall not covet is one of the ten commandments and is called the law. And again it says “For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law-James 2-NKJV. Do not commit adultery and do not murder are two of the ten commandments and are called the law.
Jesus said concerning the law: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled-Matthew 5-NKJV. Jesus came not to change or destroy the law for the law is still in effect and people who are not Chrisitians and Christians who are not Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, and Walking In The Holy Spirit are still followers of the law since they do not follow Jesus-whether they know it or not. If you desire to be a follower of the law-a follower of moses and judaism instead of a follower of Jesus and be a Christian-then do not become a Christian and Be Jesus, Do The Work Of Jesus, and Walk In The Holy Spirit.
If I am wrong about what I Teach about the law then paul is even more wrong-for Paul Taught the same thing in The New Testament that I Teach. Paul said: Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law(the ten commandments and rules) through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another-to Him(Jesus) who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. For when we were in the flesh(before we became Christians and while we are not Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, and Walking In The Holy Spirit), the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. 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(the law-jot and tittle). What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead. I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died. And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death. For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me. Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good(for it is by the law that we realize we need Jesus and The Holy Spirit). Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful(so that we will repent)-Romans 7-NKJV.
Now we know that whatever the law(the ten commandments and rules) says, it says to those who are under the law(the ten commandments and rules), that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law(the ten commandments and rules) no flesh will be justified in His sight(in the opinion of God), for by the law(the ten commandments and rules) is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God apart from the law (the ten commandments and rules) is revealed-Romans 3-NKJV.
The law(the ten commandments and rules) was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor(no longer under the ten commandments and rules). Galatians 3-NKJV.
Because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression-Romans 4-NKJV.
God sent forth His Son, born under the law(the ten commandments and rules), to redeem those who were under the law(the ten commandments and rules). How is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements(the law-the ten commandments and rules), to which you desire again to be in bondage-Galatians 4-NKJV. O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth? This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law(by following the ten commandments and rules), or by the hearing of faith(by being Truly Born Again)? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit(by being Truly Born Again), are you now being made perfect by the flesh(by following the ten commandments and rules)? Have you suffered so many things in vain-if indeed it was in vain? Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law(because of following the ten commandments and rules), or by the hearing of faith (by being Jesus, Doing the Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit)_Galatians 3_NKJV.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free(being Jesus, Doing the Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit), and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage(being followers of moses-the ten commandments and rules). Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised(be a follower of moses-the ten commandments and rules), Christ will profit you nothing. You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law(the ten commandments and rules); you have fallen from grace. You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him(Jesus) who calls you. And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision(being a follower of moses-the ten commandments and rules), why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased(a huge reason Christians are persecuted is for not being followers of moses-the ten commandments and rules). For you, brethren, have been called to liberty(freedom from the ten commandments and rules)-Galatians 5-NKJV.
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh(the lust of the flesh: doing-thinking-believing-teaching things for selfish-wrong-evil-reasons). For the flesh(selfishness which is hate) lusts against the Spirit(selflessness which is Love), and the Spirit (selflessness which is Love) against the flesh (selfishness which is hate); and these are contrary to one another. But if you are led by the Spirit(being Jesus, Doing the Work of Jesus and Walking In The Holy Spirit), you are not under the law(the ten commandments and rules)-Galatians 5_NKJV.
Selflessness is unselfish concern for the welfare of others where you are acting with less concern for yourself and have more interest for the success of others. Selfishness is stinginess resulting from a concern for your own welfare and a disregard for any True Concern, True Care, True Love of-and for-others.
Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches(give money etc. to Teachers who teach True Christianity). Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh(selfishness which is hate) will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit(selflessness which is Love) will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one examine his own work-Galatians 6-NKJV. Examine your own works for Jesus-compare yourself to Jesus. Just because you do more than other people does not mean a whole lot. People are evil-doing more than other evil people is not exactly thrilling.
But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners(evil doers), is Christ therefore a minister of sin(evil)? Certainly not! For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor-Galatians 2-NKJV. If a person starts doing evil again after becoming a christian then such a person is as though they were never a christian-so therefore are again under condemnation. There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit-Romans 8-NKJV).
Knowing this, that our old man(the person we were) was crucified with Him(Jesus), that the body of sin(evil) might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin(evil). For he who has died has been freed from sin(evil). (I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me-Galatians 2-NKJV.) Reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin(evil), but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin(evil) reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts(lusts: selfishness which is hate). And having been set free from sin(evil), you became slaves of righteousness. For when you were slaves of sin(evil), you were free in regard to righteousness(selflessness which is Love)-Romans 6-NKJV.
Then He(Jesus) said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come(evil doers attacking you and your work for Jesus), but woe to him through whom they do come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these(harm you and your work for Jesus)-Luke 17-NKJV.
Now we know that whatever the law(the ten commandments and rules) says, it says to those who are under the law(the ten commandments and rules)-Romans 3-NKJV. Because the law(the ten commandments and rules) brings about wrath; for where there is no law(the ten commandments and rules) there is no transgression-Romans 4-NKJV. If you are Truly Born Again and are ALSO Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit-then for you there is no law(the ten commandments and rules) so therefore you cannot break the law(the ten commandments and rules) because for you they do not exist. For Christ is the end of the law(the ten commandments and rules) for righteousness to everyone who believes(for everyone who is Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit)-Romans 10-NKJV.
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin(doing Evil) that grace may abound(doing evil since we think Jesus will forgive us)? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin(doing evil) live any longer in it(doing evil)? For sin(evil) shall not have dominion over you, for(because) you are not under law but under grace(if you are Truly Born Again and are ALSO Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit then sin(evil which is selfishness and pride) is something you no longer participate in-sin(evil which is selfishness and pride) no longer tempts you-doing evil, doing sin(evil which is selfishness and pride) is no longer of interest to you)-Romans 6-NKJV.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law(the ten commandments and rules) but by faith in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified(becoming a Truly Good person) by faith in Christ(having been Truly Born Again and are ALSO Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit) and not by the works of the law(the ten commandments and rules); for by the works of the law(following the ten commandments and rules) no flesh shall be justified(NO ONE can become good and go to heaven through the ten cammandments and rules)-Galatians 2-NKJV. So by following the law(the ten commandments and rules) you cannot be saved or please God because you can only pretend that you are good and become a hypocrite-a pretender-an actor-a poser. You deceive yourself and others with your phony goodness. You know what is truly evil and Truly Good on the basis of selfishness which is evil and is hate-and selflessness which is goodness and is Love-not on the basis of the ten commandments-rules-laws. Instead of following the law(the ten commandments and rules and laws) a Truly Born Again Christian must follow The Holy Spirit: “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law(the ten commandments and rules)-Galatians 5-NKJV. And again: “But now we have been delivered from the law(the ten commandments and rules), having died to what we were held by(evil and the ten commandments and rules), so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.-Romans 7-NKJV.
Is Walking In The Holy Spirit a licence to sin and do evil? Of course not! On the contrary, Walking In The Spirit is the only way you can keep yourself from sinning(doing evil)! Would The Holy Spirit lead you to do evil? No, of course not! When we walk in The Spirit we are being guided by God Himself! If you are walking in The Holy Spirit you are free from the law-BUT ONLY WHEN YOU ARE WALKING IN THE SPIRIT! But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law(the ten commandments and rules)-Galatians 5-NKJV. You can be a Born Again Christian and not be walking in The Spirit. When you are not walking in The Holy Spirit but are walking in the flesh(in the control of satan) like a non-christian you are under the law and are constantly feeling condemned and being condemned by the law: There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For what the law(the ten commandments and rules) could not do, God did by sending His own Son(Jesus) in the likeness of sinful flesh, He(Jesus) condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit-Romans 8-NKJV. A christian who is not walking in The Spirit will be as the defeated christian that Paul describes: For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will(the desire to do good) is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will(want) to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do(do not want to do), that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do(doing the evil that you do not want to do), it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me(in other words you are allowing satan to control you-thereby the devil is doing evil through you). I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death(the control of satan)? I thank God — through Jesus Christ our Lord!(Jesus will deliver you from the control of satan(the devil) and the power of satan(the devil) if you Truly Are Born Again and are ALSO Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit)-Romans 7-NKJV. So as you can see a Born Again Christian who is not Walking In The Holy Spirit has a split personality that is fighting one side against the other. And as Jesus said: If a house is divided against itself that house cannot stand-Mark 3:25-NKJV-you being the house. Not Being Truly Born Again and ALSO Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit is living under the law of sin(doing evil) and death(you will be harming or crushing others and destroying yourself).
Paul is discussing in romans chapter 7 what it is like-how it feels-how it is-to be trying to be a christian by following the law(the ten commandments and rules)-trying to be good. Which also is the same as a non-christian tying to follow the law(the ten commandments and rules)-trying to be good. Or a follower of judaism tying to follow the law(the ten commandments and rules)-trying to be good. It is total failure-the only good thing about this person paul talks about in romans chapter 7 is that this person genuinly wants to do and be good-so this person can start to be and do good if they understand that they do and are evil and begin Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit.
Romans chapter 8 clearly says that you must Walk In The Spirit in order to do and be good. There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. The righteous requirement fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit-Romans 8-NKJV.
Or do you not know, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law(the ten commandments and rules) has dominion over a man as long as he lives-Romans 7-NKJV. But if you have died to yourself-the world-your old life-died to evil(selfishness which is hate) then the law(the ten commandments and rules) no longer has rule over you. If you are Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit then the law(the ten commandments and rules) has died in your life just like a husband dying in marriage: For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law(the ten commandments and rules) to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law(the ten commandments and rules) of her husband. 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(the ten commandments and rules), so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man. Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law(the ten commandments and rules) through the body of Christ, (you were crucified and died with Jesus-died to your old self) that you may be married to another — to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. But now we have been delivered from the law(the ten commandments and rules), 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-Romans 7-NKJV.
For those who live according to the flesh(pride, stinginess, greed, selfishness, cowardness, etc.), set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded(life without major daily self sacrifice) is death, but to be spiritually minded(selflessness) is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity(to be an antichrist) against God-Romans 8-NKJV.
So then, those who are in the flesh(having pride, stinginess, greed, selfishness, cowardness, etc.) cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Therefore, brethren, we are debtors-not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh(having pride, stinginess, greed, selfishness, cowardness, etc.) you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body(pride, stinginess, greed, selfishness, cowardness, etc.), you will live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear. The Spirit Himself(The Holy Spirit inside of you) bears witness with our spirit(your personal spirit that is your existance and is you) that we are children of God, if indeed we suffer with Him(Jesus), that we may also be glorified together. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son(being Jesus). Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all. Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns(satan and the people who follow the devil). It is Christ who died, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord-Romans 8-NKJV.
What is Being Born again
There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night(because this pharisee did not want other pharisees to see him talking with Jesus-it would be embarrassing for the pharisee) and said to Him(Jesus), �Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him-John 3-NKJV. Pharisee is a critical bible term. (pharisee: Pharisee of the bible and in modern times: A pharisee is a person who tries to get, make, push and force people to be followers of the law(the ten commandments and rules)-you know who the modern day pharisees are. A Pharisee is full of pride. A Pharisee pretends-acts like they are a good christian-a model christian-a role model. A Pharisee falsely believes they are actually a good christian-a model christian-a role model. A Pharisee is a hypocrite-a pretender-an actor-a poser. Be like me says the Pharisee. Pharisee beliefs are also referred to as Legalism-no bending-no breaking rules; except for them of course. A Pharisee is a member of the “Holier Than Thou” party. No matter what you do, in the eyes of a pharisee, you will never be good enough for God or them unless you become and be just like them.
Being a pharisee is a disease that infects both born again christians and non-christians alike and has a disastrous affect on born again christians and the church. The cure for this disease is to remember that christianity is not about following the law(the ten commandments and rules), Christians who are Being Jesus, Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Walking In The Holy Spirit are dead to the law(the ten commandments and rules): “Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law(the ten commandments and rules) through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another — to Him(Jesus) who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God-Romans 7-NKJV. As you can see from the previous passage you cannot bear fruit(do Truly Good and be Truly Good) by following the law(the ten commandments and rules). Born Again christians follow Jesus and The Holy Spirit-not the law(the ten commandments and rules).
Being filled and led by The Holy Spirit is the only way that we can possibly behave and think righteously in the eyes of God! For what the law(the ten commandments and rules) could not do, God did by sending His own Son(Jesus) in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin(evil): He(Jesus) condemned sin in the flesh(gave us the power through The Holy Spirit to overcome being and doing evil), that the righteous requirement of the law(the intention of the law to make people good) might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh(selfishness and pride which is hate) but according to the Spirit(selflessness through the power of The Holy Spirit, knowledge of what is True Good and true evil and being guided by The Holy Spirit)-Romans 8-NKJV.
As Born Again christians we must understand that we are followers of Jesus and The New Testament which is Christianity-Christians are not followers of moses, the law(the ten commandments and rules) and the old testament which is judaism. And we cannot be judeo-christians: trying to be both christian and jewish at the same time-the two beliefs oppose and contradict each other. If they did not conflict they would not have crucified our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Judaism believes that you please God and are saved by trying to follow the law(the ten commandments and rules) to the best of your ability. But we as Born Again christians know that the best of our ability will never be good enough-and following the ten commandments and rules can often lead to doing great evil: the path to hell is paved with good intentions.
All religions do not even care about pleasing God-not really-they just care about following rules. Rules are used to control and abuse people. Many religions and churches that are called christianity and christian are simply following judaism and pretending that they also follow Christ and they deceive many. Why would we as Born Again christians want these false, evil beliefs in our lives, in our churches? So christians condemn them and then teach the same things that they teach.
So if you are Truly Born Again and ALSO Truly Being Jesus, Truly Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Truly Walking In The Holy Spirit then do not be worrying about bending or breaking the ten commandments and rules or if others bend or break the ten commandments and rules-and certainly do not try to make others follow the law(the ten commandments and rules). Only by being in the relaxing peace and guidance of The Holy Spirit can you-or others-possibly even hope to fulfill the righteousness that God wants-but more importantly-that you must want as your number one passion: to be Truly Good. When you are Walking In The Spirit you do not think about following the law(the ten commandments and rules)-you are then dead to the law(the ten commandments and rules). Instead you think about doing good, being good, believing good, teaching good-which is the Holiness and righteousness of God.
As long as you worry and obsess about the law(the ten commandments and rules), trying to follow it and making others follow it, you will sin: But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the law sin was dead. I was alive once without the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died-Romans 7-NKJV. Yes-the law holds us: both Born Again Christians and non-christians-in bondage to sin(evil): But now we have been delivered from the law(the ten commandments and rules), 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-Romans 7-NKJV. Everyone who tries to follow the law(the ten commandments and rules) is under a curse: For as many as are of the works of the law(the ten commandments and rules) are under the curse. But that no one is justified by the law(the ten commandments and rules) in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.” Yet the law(the ten commandments and rules) is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them(the law will be your ruler instead of God).” Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law-Galatians 3-NKJV. Do not think to follow the law(the ten commandments and rules) in order to be righteous-if that is what you think then you are saying that Jesus Christ lived and died for nothing. “I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law(the ten commandments and rules), then Christ died in vain(for nothing)-Galatians 2-NKJV.
Nicodemus answered and said to Him, �How can these things be?� Jesus answered and said to him, �Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things(just as the teachers of today do not know the things that Jesus taught). Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things-John 3-NKJV. People are constantly seeing things that are caused by either God or satan. People just casually write these things off as coincidence or chance even though the odds that it is coincidence or chance are ridiculously small. But people put blinders on so they will not be able to see that there are supernatural forces involved. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned-1 corinthians 2-NKJV. They say “there must be some logical explanation for this”. Yes there is a logical explanation-it was done by God or satan or some other supernatural being. So if you tell them that the reason the good thing happened is that God did it or the way that you received the money you so badly needed was because God directed those with money to give you the money you needed-then people will dismiss it as chance, your doing, or manipulation. If they will not believe the obvious miracles that they have seen, why would they believe that you can be Born Again and have The Holy Spirit come inside of you. Their hearts are hardened from doing and believing evil.
For God did not send His Son(Jesus) into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him(Jesus) might be saved. �He who believes in Him(Jesus) is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God-John 3-NKJV. Everyone is already condemned, you do not have to do something in order to become condemned. A lot of people think that they must do something physically violent like murder in order to be condemned. If you believe that you must commit a violent evil in order to be condemned then you are lost. People who have committed a horrible evil were condemned before they did these things-they were condemned-just like you. But people who have committed a horrible evil at least know that they are condemned and might repent and be saved-though it is not likely. People who have committed a horrible evil have a heart now so very hardened that it is almost impossible for them to Truly Repent-though they may believe they have truly repented-and convinced everyone around them they are now christians-they probably have not Truly Repented and are not Christians at all. With all this said they at least do know that they must repent. So then is a person who has committed a horrible evil more likely to be saved than you? Do these horrible people know they are evil and yet you do not know that you are evil? You do have to do something in order to end your condemnation.
You have to seek The Truth. Seek The Truth regardless of what The Truth is. You seek the truth even though The Truth contradicts everything that you believe. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free-John 8-NKJV. The Truth is The Light, The Truth is Jesus Christ, The Truth is The Holy Spirit, The Truth is that you are evil and that Jesus Christ died for your evils. Jesus is The Truth: Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father(God) except through Me-John 14-NKJV. You can Walk In The Truth because Walking In The Truth is the same as Walking In The Spirit because The Spirit Is Truth. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth-1 John 5-NKJV. And: For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth-3 John 1-NKJV. Walking In The Truth is intellectual knowledge and wisdom. But Walking In The Truth is also much more than intellectual knowledge and wisdom. Walking in The Truth is Walking With God, Walking In God. You walk and talk with God in a much greater way than verbal comunication because God is inside of you and you are inside of God-making you partly the same person-making you and God one. So then it is like talking to yourself-but really talking to someone inside of you. Your mind and spirit are connected to God in a form of ESP. When you are in The Spirit you are one with God, but you are a small part of the whole. God can hear all of your thoughts, but you cannot hear all of Gods thoughts. You hear what God wants you to hear, what God lets you hear, or what you let yourself hear that God says. When you are filled with The Spirit you are hearing God, and when you hear God you are hearing The Truth about God, the universe, and your existence in God and the universe. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free-John 8-NKJV.
When The Holy Spirit Fills you then you will be Full Of The Light and you will feel the shame of your evils, but you will feel the shame in a peaceful way. You will feel a peace about all the Good, the bad and the ugly in your life and in the life of others. And you will not want to do evil again because the shame you feel is from Knowing-Truly Knowing-that the evil you committed was stupid, harmful and unnecessary. The evil harmed you and others-you know that now-you really did not Truly Realize the evil of your thoughts and actions before. And the evil was unnecessary: The Peace and the shame you feel now makes what you thought was pleasureable and/or necessary before look just plain stupid, ridiculous, childish and evil to you now. You genuinely-from your innermost insides-NOW wish to God that you had not done this or thought that. The very thought of your committing that evil again, and that you have ever committed it at all-horrifies you.
Someone committing the same evil or evils that you thought that you would never commit or would never commit again horrifies you-but you react with Love and patience for you are not their judge. You try to help them. They will Truly Repent or suffer or be damned for what they do. The joyful pride they feel and the evil smirks and smiles they have will count as nothing to rescue them. Love and Forgive-you are are the side of right.
Do not think or expect people to cheer and applaud your being Truly Born Again and Truly Being Jesus, Truly Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Truly Walking In The Holy Spirit-people will boo you. People will ridicule you to your face and behind your back. People will see you as weak and abuse you and your goodness and forgiving nature-for people are evil-but they did the same to Jesus. You must be treated the same as Jesus. Do not expect family-friends-loved ones or the town you are in to accept you-they will hate you. Then He(Jesus) went out from there and came to His own country(town), and His disciples followed Him. And when the Sabbath had come, He(Jesus) began to teach in the synagogue(church). And many hearing Him(Jesus) were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man(Jesus) get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him(Jesus), that such mighty works are performed by His hands!(they were being sarcastic) Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” And they(the people of his home town) were offended at Him(Jesus) (they hated Jesus because Jesus embarrased them-they knew that Jesus was truly nothing-they knew Jesus was a fool and a charlatan). But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” Now He(Jesus) could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He(Jesus) marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching-Mark 6-NKJV. For even His(Jesus) brothers did not believe in Him(Jesus)-John 7-NKJV. Jesus said: Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be those of his own household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. Brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved-Matthew 10-NKJV.
Do not use ten commandments and rules to judge. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. (You are using the ten commandments and rules to decide what you think of yourself and other people-which is an evil thing to do) There is one Lawgiver(the laws of Jesus-which are not the same as the ten commandments and rules), who is able to save and to destroy(Jesus Christ). Who are you to judge another-James 4-NKJV.
When the light of Jesus Christ shines into your soul you are now capable of judging-but not on the basis of the ten commandments or other personal rules of the bible. You will be able to judge yourself and others on the basis of what a person believes, does and teaches concerning Jesus and Christianity. What a person believes, does and teaches concerning being Truly Born Again and Truly Being Jesus, Truly Doing The Work Of Jesus, And Truly Walking In The Holy Spirit. That is how Jesus judged-that is how you judge-no other way. To judge on the basis of personal life or politics etc. is evil and disgusting for anyone to do-much more evil for a Christian to do.
When you realize that you think, believe or do an evil or evils and then you repent-then your sin(evil) has been judged by you, condemned by you, and through the power of God has died. The sin(evil) is then replaced by goodness. This process is what is known as sanctification. And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth-John 17-NKJV. Sanctification is being under divine influence.
Do not expect others to be like you-do not try to sanctify others. A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven-John 3-NKJV. Each of us only has what God has given individually to each of us and will give individually to each of us. So do not expect others to be like you or do or like the same way and things as you do. Do not try to create clones. What makes you so great anyway: pride-selfishness? We must be individuals who are trying to be like Jesus-take all of the goodness of Jesus-but still be ourselves. God has never been interested in a boring world of robot clones.
For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure. He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him-John 3-NKJV. God has given you all The Holy Spirit your gonna get-if you have The Holy Spirit at all by Being Truly Born Again. You probably are not experienceing all of The Holy Spirit that God has given you but The Fullness of The Holy Spirit is there for you. It is a matter of opening up your heart, mind and soul. But I am not speaking in terms of speaking in tongues, doing a dance, screaming or crying or waving your arms as you feel the spirit moving. I am talking about The Holy Spirit filling your heart, mind and soul-giving you peace, knowledge and wisdom as you Be Jesus, Do The Work Of Jesus, and Walk In The Holy Spirit in your daily life-24 hours a day every day of the year. You will be inside of Joy-be inside of Peace-be inside of Love.
God has something wonderful planned for you, but when things are bad, or we find that we are not happy with the way things are, then even Born Again christians can become very, very discouraged. Even Born Again christians can start to become delusional and think things like “this proves there is no God” or “this proves I’m not Born Again” or “This proves that God hates me” or “this proves that God is against me”. This is especially the case if things are miserable and stay that way for a long time. Or perhaps there is just one miserable event. And in addition to this people who are listening to satan whispering into their minds will use your your pain to try and hurt you more. They will say “this proves there is no God” or “this proves that you do not know God” or “this proves you are not Born Again” or “this proves that God is against you” or “this proves that Chrsitianity is a lie or a fairy tale”. Your pain and anguish does not stop others from wanting to hurt you more.
People have the incredible gaul to expect even more proof than God has already provided. And while the crowds were thickly gathered together some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher(speaking to Jesus-calling Jesus-Teacher), we want to see a sign(proof) from You. He(Jesus) began to say, “This is an evil and adulterous(cheating on Jesus) generation. It seeks a sign, and no sign will be given to it. An evil generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it-Luke 11-Matthew 12-NKJV. If you are indeed a Truly Born Again Christian then you have already seen enough signs. And then if you Be Jesus, Do The Work Of Jesus, and Walk In The Holy Spirit you will see signs that are incredibly Majestic. Yes-then you will have more and more proof(signs). But you will believe and understand the the signs(proof) AFTER you have become Truly Born Again. People who are not Truly Born Again see many of the same amazing signs(proof)-but they dismiss it as coincidence, chance or meaningless-how dumb can you get.
Jesus speaking of how dumb people are said: Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned-Matthew 12-NKJV.
Who is God seeking to be on The Team Of God? Jesus said to her, “the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth-John 4-NKJV. But you do not have His word(the Word of God through Jesus Christ) abiding in you, because whom He sent(Jesus), Him(Jesus) you do not believe. You search the Scriptures(the old testament), for in them you think you have eternal life. But you are not willing to come to Me(Jesus) that you may have life. I do not receive honor from men. But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive(If a person has selfish interests-that person you believe. If a person has selflessness-that person you call a liar and weak). How can you believe, who receive honor(approval) from one another, and do not seek the honor(approval) that comes from the only God-John 5-NKJV.
Jesus said: But to what shall I liken this generation(the people living now). It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their companions, and saying: ‘We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not lament(in other words society tells you how to think, believe and do-and yet you ignore them and go the way of Jesus-this makes society very angry for they are jealous-you are not like them). For John(John The Baptist) came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man(Jesus) came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by her children(wisdom is proved right and good by those who are Truly Wise).” Then He began to rebuke the cities in which most of His mighty works had been done, because they did not repent: At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes(people who are not respected by society)-Matthew 11-NKJV. The rulers of this world reject Jesus: scientists-politicians-teachers-the media, etc: But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the will of God for themselves-Luke 7-NKJV. The rulers of this world: scientists-politicians-teachers-the media, etc. should be ignored as teachers by those seeking to be good and not evil.
