A World Message from God to Truth Seekers and all who would be Holy.
I submit this message to the world received by revelation, "2000." My aim is to pass on some spiritual
knowledge many people do not know. Hopefully, confirmation for believers and pointing the way for the uninformed person. I hope the reader will look into and prove the things I am saying by scripture or by personal application.
In the Garden of Eden, God commanded " Eat not of that tree. " " Why not? " Because of the consequences of disobedience. God created all things spiritual, all things physical, and all material things.
Read: “God is perceived in nature.” (Rom. 1:20, Zach. 12:1, Ps. 19:1, Is. 45:12, Eph. 6:12). God knows His own works. He knew that spiritual obstacles, retribution, to man's well being would occur if man disobeyed, the penalty for disobedience was death.
Read: "Retribution, obstacles, the law of Sin." (Heb. 2:2,3, Job 34:11, Prov. 12:14, Jer. 32:19, Ob. 1:15, Micah 6:8)
So what did man do?
Man condemned himself before God by his disobedience. The penalty of death meant that man was cut off from having direct access to spiritual understanding (the tree of life). Way to the tree of life was shut off so that man could not obtain spiritual understanding or direct access to God as Adam had enjoyed before his disobedience.
Read: "Man, spiritually dead." (Gen. 2:16,17, 3:22, Rom. 11:32).
Without spiritual understanding man would now have to live and die in his physical body, spiritually dead, until a time that God has allotted for each man to come to a spiritual understanding and by man's free choice he must accept the plan of salvation for redemption back into the Kingdom of God." All men may come. Who so ever will." (1 Tim. 2:3,4, Acts 17:31, 2 Cor. 6:1,2, 2 Pet. 3:9, Rev. 22:17). In all things God created He set bounds, a path, courses and limits.
Read: "Example, the sea "(Job 38:10,11).
God also set a path or course which man should live by. Man has a free will, so he must choose his path. Because of man's disobedience he is in darkness and must search for spiritual understanding.
Read: Man search for truth, (Acts 17:27, Jer. 29:13, 14).
In finding God man can live his life according to the Will of God, if he chooses to do so. By men preaching, the Spirit of God engage, confront, convince people of the world, (The Word does its job, (Jn. 16:8-11). Through the gospel God lovingly informs man of his duty to God. The gospel brings light, faith in the Word and conviction.
Read: "The gospel is light" (John 12:46, 16:8-11).
If a man believes the Word of God in his heart salvation is near him. He becomes sorrowful, sadden, crushed in his spirit, convicted, he has a contrite heart Godly sorrow. It is not just saying I believe from the mind (Educated deduction) the heart must hurt. There must be a great desire to be right with God, A man may get over this state of mind thinking well nothing has changed. But when he lease expect it, suddenly he knows he has been changed.
Read: "A contrite heart. (Ps. 51:17, 2 Cor. 7:10)."
Man becomes justified by faith under Grace. What has man done to qualify for this justification? Man has not done any physical thing to quality. He heard the gospel that God love all men. God sent his son Jesus Christ into the world to be an example of the Father's love. Jesus chose to do the will of the Father even unto death on the cross. Jesus died for man's sin of disobedience, spiritual harm, darkness, which came upon Adam and all men thereafter, (Rom. 5:19). What Is Sin?
When most people think of sin. They think of someone cutting, shooting, partying with wild women, adultery and the like. What man call sin is the result of sin. Sin is disobedience. To disobey God's Law, (1 John 3:4).
(4) "Whosoever comitteth sin transgreseth also the law for sin is the transgression of the law."
Sin is breaking the spiritual law that God has established for all men to follow. Being in spiritual darkness man could not see how to keep the code of, thy shall nots." Because there is no end to that law. The death of Jesus on the cross established man's access to spiritual truth, light, a way to acquire spiritual understanding. (The Comforter, (Jn. 14:16, 26, 15:26) the cross was necessary so that man by faith could fulfill the law as Jesus did, (A Christian must acquire Christ like love in his heart). Under Grace that is to obey the two great commandments that fulfills all the requirements of the law of the Spirit, (Matt. 22:37, 38, 39, Lev. 19:17, Rom. 13:9).
Read: "Jesus our example, even his death (1 Pet. 2:21, 2 Cor. 5:15)."
When man by faith believe the gospel in his heart. By the Grace of God, Divine Mercy, man receives a free gift of righteousness. The Christian can then call on God through Christ Jesus.
Read: "Right standing and a free gift" (1 Tim. 2:5, 6, Mt. 20:28, Mk. 10:45, Rom. 5:17, 4:24, 25, Titus 3:5).
The free gift of righteousness is the "New Birth." Different religious orders have other names for it. But they all mean, men become justified before God or he comes into right standing with God. He is forgiven for his past sins. He is no longer under condemnation, a burden is lifted. It's that moment when God changes one's heart. (That deep work of Grace, the believer is born from above). The believer knows he has been changed. The believer can stop doing his obvious bad habits overnight. The world looks different and he feels like a new creature. Also other people notice the sudden change in him. The believer is elated, he wants the whole world to know he has found the Lord and all men should share this goodness.
Read: "I have been changed! (Jn. 3:8), Struggle, (Gal. 5:24), Abide, (Rom. 6:11, 1 Jn. 2:6)."
However, after a little while the believer finds that there is a fight going on within himself. He wants to do the Will of God. But he also like to do the things he has always chosen to do. If a believer gets this far he does not want to lose the free gift of righteousness he received. At this point the believer makes a mistake of trying to keep himself. He try to keep all the "thy shall nots" "The written code kills the Spirit gives life." (2 Cor. 3:6, Col. 2:20,21, 22, Eph. 2:15). Frustration and fear sets in, all his time is spent fasting, praying, repenting again and again trying to be good. He is in fear of his life because he is not walking in faith and he is not being perfected in love. (1 Jn. 4:18). The believer must have faith and believe the Word. He must understand that it is the Spirit of God, (The Comforter) who keeps him (1 Jn. 5:18). The believer must lose the consciousness of sin, (Heb. 10:2, 22). As he strives to be obedient he must grow in love or learn to love, (Follow the words of Jesus). The opportunity and temptation to sin will always be present. Since the believer chose Jesus as his Lord. He thereby renounced disobedience and dedicated his life to Christ Jesus. He must now learn to surrender wholly to the Spirit of God. Know this, there are times when a believer carelessly goes his way. The Spirit is able to keep him despite himself. That is to say some times the Spirit will fix a situation and deliver him from harm before he become aware of it. (Thank you Lord, I didn't see that coming!) Tip: In an emergency, when trouble is upon a believer and he sees neither a way out nor a way to turn, he doesn't see how he can resist doing wrong. He should call out to God from his heart believing God will help. He asks God to keep him, and he ask God to fix the situation. Then he should stand still and see the salvation of the Lord (faith). The believer must grow in the love of Christ, (The Christian grow love in his heart). As long as the believer has the will or desire to do the Will of God, he will hear the words Jesus taught. He will continue to move or overcome his earthly nature, his wrong doings. All the things that do not allow him to grow love in his heart, (Fruit).
