UNITY AND MATURITY FOR FREEDOM IN THE LORD REQUIRES PRAYER WITHOUT CEASING

                                                                                 I TH. 5:17, II TIM 4:5, I TH. 5:6


                                           BODY OF CHRIST WITH LIBERAL MUSCLES, STRONG BONES, THICK SKIN


1 Cor 12:12-31
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where were the body? 20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.


21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: 23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. 24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.


UNITED BY AND IN AGAPE’ LOVE


Matt 13:17 ALSO IN Luke 10:24
For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.


WHY?

1 Corinthians 13
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 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, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

What is laid out in these scriptures lays a foundation we MUST have and maintain in order to have revival and keep it going!


CHARITY IS AGAPE’ LOVE! – JESUS WAS AND IS AGAPE’ LOVE PERSONIFIFED! – YOU CANNOT HAVE LOVE WITHOUT TRUST WHICH IS FAITH AND THAT IS WHY OUR FAITH IS COUNTED AS RIGHTIOUSNESS!
THE VISION AND UNDERSTANDING GOD GAVE ME…  

DOUBT IS A CLEVER ENEMY STOPPING SAINTS & DIVIDING THE BODY
FEAR IS DOUBT BUT SO IS ANY VOICE OR FEELING THAT SAYS YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND DO HIS WILL NOR CAN OTHER BRETHREN!


PEOPLE WHO SAY "I BELIEVE GOD. I DO NOT BELIEVE HE WORKS THIS WAY NOW." – DOUBT IS IN CHARGE

GOD TOLD ME:


1.    “Such people do not believe my WORD and that means they doubt me.”
2.    “They use … ‘when that which is perfect is come…’ but there are minor errors in every translation and there are errors in every interpretation. The errors are not serious enough to cost a person their eternal soul when it comes to the main body of believers but they ARE serious enough to cost a person their eternal soul in the cults.”


I BELIEVE GOD I DO NOT BELIEVE A MAN OR WOMAN OF GOD – DOUBT


1.    “A person who believes in a God who created all thing but they do not believe that this same God has the power to make man/woman say and do His will, especially when the man/woman is willing, that person worships an inferior god.”
2.    “To disbelieve in God’s power to use willing vessels is to doubt God Himself.”
3.    “This burdens my servants with undue burdens.” (Mark 6:1-6) & (Mtt. 23:4)
4.    “This ties my hands.” (Mtt 23:13)


REBELLION DOES MAJOR DAMAGE AND IS BIRTHED FROM DOUBT


1.    It is like the sin of witchcraft. (IS.15:23) – I TH. 5:8 & 15 – 23 - 24
2.    Evil people seek rebellion (Prov. 17:11)


                                                                                         THE DEVIL IS A COUNTERFEIT - A FAKE


Rev 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.


KJV


Rev 22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.


KJV


Matt 17:1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. (The deciples SAW the two old dead saints.) 4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.


KJV


The above is a spiritual event clearly shown by the fact that the angel “appeared” and “showed” spiritual things as well as Moses and Elias being “seen” by the disciples. This was the ‘real deal’ and that means there IS the possibility of a counterfeit. The bible describes things clearly or it would author confusion and God IS NOT the author of confusion. That is the devil’s territory!


THE REAL DEAL IS FROM GOD, FOR GOD, GAVE GOD KNOWLEDGE TO SET GOD’S PEOPLE FREE FROM IGNORANCE AND BONDAGE, SENT PEOPLE TO GOD, TOLD THE DECIPLES TO OBEY GOD, AND MORE. THE ANGELS THAT APPEARED TO JOHN REJECTED EXALTATION AND WORSHIP, GLORIFIED GOD, AND TOLD JOHN AND READERS TO WORSHIP AND SERVE GOD ONLY.


THE FAKES USE FAMILIAR AND OTHER EVIL SPIRITS, FAKE THE THING BY USE OF WHAT THEY KNOW, OR USE EVIL SOURCES TO SEE INTO AND TALK TO SPIRIT REALMS AND SPIRITS OF THE DEAD AND THEY DO IT FOR SELF EXAULTATION, PERSONAL GAIN, AND OTHER EVIL PURPOSES THAT TAKE PEOPLE AWAY FROM GOD AND DENIE HIM HIS JUST DESERVE AND GLORY.


1 Sam 28:4 The Philistines assembled and came and set up camp at Shunem, while Saul gathered all the Israelites and set up camp at Gilboa. 5 When Saul saw the Philistine army, he was afraid; terror filled his heart. 6 He inquired of the LORD, but the LORD did not answer him by dreams or Urim or prophets. 7 Saul then said to his attendants, "Find me a woman who is a medium, so I may go and inquire of her." (Prefect LOVE casts out all fear. We see Saul had already abandoned God or he would not have been filled with fear and terrified. He would not have used an evil source to talk to Samuel.)


1 Sam 28:8 So Saul disguised himself, putting on other clothes, and at night he and two men went to the woman. "Consult a spirit for me," he said, "and bring up for me the one I name." 9 But the woman said to him, "Surely you know what Saul has done. He has cut off the mediums and spiritists from the land. Why have you set a trap for my life to bring about my death?" (If she recognized Saul she would have said so and told him she could not do it.) 10 Saul swore to her by the LORD, "As surely as the LORD lives, you will not be punished for this." 11 Then the woman asked, "Whom shall I bring up for you?" "Bring up Samuel," he said. 12 When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out at the top of her voice and said to Saul, "Why have you deceived me? You are Saul!" 13 The king said to her, "Don't be afraid. What do you see?" The woman said, "I see a spirit coming up out of the ground." 14 "What does he look like?" he asked. "An old man wearing a robe is coming up," she said. Then Saul knew it was Samuel, and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground.


(Mediums and the like often use evil spirits and fake a spirit when there is none. As shown by the next scripture, in this case the spirit was real but the source and direction was evil.)


15 Samuel said to Saul, (It says “Samuel said” and NOT the false spirit said or the woman feigned and said. Samuel is speaking but the source that conjured him up was evil. The direction is evil. Saul had joined himself to evil. There can be no confusion.)  "Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?"


"I am in great distress," Saul said. "The Philistines are fighting against me, and God has turned away from me. He no longer answers me, either by prophets or by dreams. So I have called on you to tell me what to do." (Evil people try to enlist holy people into their evil deeds.) 16 Samuel said, "Why do you consult me, now that the LORD has turned away from you and become your enemy? (This next statement was not widely know but was shared between the prophet and Saul, David and a few who kept it silent until the day the Lord appointed) 17 The LORD has done what he predicted through me. The LORD has torn the kingdom out of your hands and given it to one of your neighbors-to David. 18 Because you did not obey the LORD or carry out his fierce wrath against the Amalekites, the LORD has done this to you today. 19 The LORD will hand over both Israel and you to the Philistines, and tomorrow you and your sons will be with me. The LORD will also hand over the army of Israel to the Philistines."


NIV


1 Chron 10:13 Saul died because he was unfaithful to the LORD; he did not keep the word of the LORD and even consulted a medium for guidance, 14 and did not inquire of the LORD. (This appears to contradict the first scriptures but does not because we ‘talk’ to God with, and God hears, our heart; not empty words from a heart that is far from Him. Saul abandoned God and God could not hear Saul’s “empty” words.) So the LORD put him to death and turned the kingdom over to David son of Jesse.


NIV


My mirror image raises it’s left hand when I raise my right. The counterfeit is exposed by the opposite of the direction and the lack of dimensions. It’s flat and has one dimension.


God has four dimensions – Agape’ LOVE, HIS Glory, HIS Purpose (healing, salvation, deliverance, etc.) – HIS direction for praise and worship of HIM. HE will ALWAYS agree with HIS written WORD, the Holy Bible. As in the bible there are times we must “find the agreement”. We can and should walk slowly during this process and be open to anything and everything God wants us to do, learn, etc. We DO NOT want to stone His prophets nor reject His revelation.


We MUST “prove all things” and keep the good.



                                                                                                     UNITY MOVES GOD


Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.


Phil 2:2 Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.


Matt 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy clocke also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefuly use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

                                                             LOVE COVERS ALL AND IS IN ALL - IT IS FAITH IN ACTION


God’s plan made a bit clearer is as follows:


1.    God gives us a direction or a WORD and we start moving on it but there are still a number of possibilities. We only find the answers and get the victory by focusing on knowing God’s voice and HIS leading: then we obey and trust HIM. Some examples are:
a.    We might be going straight to the main purpose and end result of victory. (NOTE: When healings show themselves as done immediately or nearly immediately this is a combination between a healing and miracles. Normal healing take time like the lepers who were healed as they went. Miracles are to help unbelievers present to believe as having seen it in person. Many of the healing performed by Jesus were miraculous healing taken place as He spoke the word so that the people of His day might believe. At one point Jesus made reference to believing because of the things He had done. where the lame walk and the blind see.  As an example, we command a healing and it manifests, is immediately visible, as soon as we speak it; or cast out devils as in Matt. 8:16.)
b.    We might be following a path that will actually LEAD us to the main path and THAT will lead us to God’s main purpose and victory. (As an example, God had the disciples go out and heal the sick, cast out devils, and do all manner of miracles shown in Luke 10:17 and later they could NOT cast devils out as is shown in Matt. 17:16. Jesus addressed their faith because they did not ask God for more clarity and discernment when they failed to see results from their prayers. IF they would have asked for more information God would have told them it was not time and that they had to fast and pray first or they would have asked God and prayed all the way there, then they would have been fasting and praying before they got there. This is shown in Matt. 17:17 – 21. I have had many such things in my life and got the victory only because I obeyed God instead of questioning what God was doing and why.


2.    Obedience is better than sacrifice (1 Sam. 15:22) and God performs HIS WORD as in Jer. 1:12, Ezek. 12:25, and Phil. 1:6. THIS IS how we find our rest in the Lord and it is shown clearly in Job 11 – read the whole chapter and gain understanding.


In healing, casting out devils, miracles, and all manner of prayers we MUST EXPECT results or we have NOT released our faith and put God into action. Many times Jesus told people their faith made them whole and ‘according to your faith’ as well as other such statements. IF I have made sure I am in a right standing with God (I have done my BEST to live right, be ready, and be in a right standing as I seek Him, hear Him, and obey Him – then I KNOW I should get results. IF there are no results and I KNOW I have released my faith I “demand “ results. If there are still no results I check myself and my prayers first and if the beam is out of my eye I ask God for more information as to what is hindering or preventing results. I am ready to have Him show me something new, something in me, something in the other person, something in their life, attacks of the enemy, soul ties that need to be cut, a root of bitterness, or anything else God wants to show me and sometimes it is as simple as obedience on the part of the person I am praying for. I only go there last because it can become a place to go for the lazy in spirit who want to blame everyone and everything else instead of going through the work and sometime pain of SELF examination, taking x-rays of the other person and their life, and pressing through the crowd to touch the hem of HIS garment.


When I have gone through all this I also examine that sometimes doctor issues are there as a side effect of the spiritual attack or as a path to follow to meet and witness to others – as in my testimony and the testimony of our sister who had cancer that was finally healed.


ADD WORKS TO YOUR FAITH AND THIS IS ADDING WORKS TO YOUR FAITH, DO IT!


WHAT DOES THE WORD SAY ABOUT SAYING WE LOVE GOD AND DO NOT KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS? WHAT DOES HE SAY TO THOSE WHO COME TO HIM IN MATT. 7:21-22 and MATT. 8:11-13 IS FOR THOSE WHO JUST MAKE IT BUT ALMOST DON’T AND FOR ALL OF US WHO MISSED HIM AT SOME POINT; WE WILL SE WHAT HAPPENED AND WE WILL ALSO WEEP AND GNASH OUR TEETH BUT THEN THE TEARS WILL BE DRIED AND THERE WILL BE WEEPING NO MORE.

WHEN WE FOCUS ON HIM, HEAR HIM, AND OBEY HIM-WE WALK AS DAVID WALKED:


Acts 2:25  For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:


26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: KJV


                                                                                          CLEAR WORDS FOR GROWTH


Job 40:1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,
2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.
3 Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
4 Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.
5 Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.
6 Then answered the LORD unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
7 Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
8 Wilt thou also diss-annul my judgment? wilt thou condemn me, that thou mayest be righteous?
9 Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a voice like him?
10 Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array thyself with glory and beauty.
11 Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath: and behold every one that is proud, and abase him.
12 Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.
13 Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in secret.
14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.


(This flesh battle against the Spirit of God is normal.  The key here is to learn the wisdom Job learned from God. Trust and obey because there is no other way.)


Ps 25:4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.


(Let this be the prayer of your heart and spirit so that Psalm 128 will be about you.)


Ps 128:1 Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.


"The word blessed here means God speaks well of you; He will cause you to prosper." True prosperity is being in a right standing with God. It is not about money or power.


Prov 16:1 The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD.
2 All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits.
3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
7 When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8 Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.
9 A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.


Isa 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.


Ezek 18:29 Yet saith the house of Israel, ‘The way of the Lord is not equal.’ O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal? "God is perfect LOVE that never fails. When things appear to be unequal we must learn what God wants us to learn and what we learn will balance the scales so that things will become equal.
"


Hos 14:9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? prudent, and he shall know them? for the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.


Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseler?
35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

                                                                                           LIVE, LEARN, AND GROW IN HIM!

                                                                                       WHEN and why WAS THE WORD "MADE FLESH"(John 1:14)


HEY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, I have a little key point MOST Christians miss….


WHEN was Jesus, the WORD, “made flesh”?

Was it when He was placed in the womb of the virgin Mary?

Was it when He was born and walked among us?

Why was Jesus, the word, made flesh?


WHEN?


NOW FOR THE ANSWER ACCORDING TO THE SYSTEMS OF GOD AND HIS WORDS:


YOU CANNOT PUT SIN, SICKNESS, DISEASE, INFIRMITY, OR ANYTHING OF HELL’S DOMAIN ON GOD! IF SOMEONE DROPPED A BUCKET FULL OF THAT GARBAGE AND SOME SPLASHED ONTO GOD IT WOULD VAPORIZE ON CONTACT.This is why Jesus, the Word, was made flesh. GOD CANNOT BE KILLED AND WILL NEVER DIE! Death cannot touch GOD!This is another reason why the Word was made flesh.THIS IS WHY THE WORD HAD TO BE “MADE FLESH” SO HE COULD HAVE ALL OF IT PUT ON HIM, HE COULD DIE AND CONQUER THAT POWER OVER US IN “HIS” DEATH AND RESURRECTION! II Cor. 5:21."For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin: that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him." I Peter 2:24 "Who His own self bear our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed." If God was turned into sin he would be immediately turned into the devil and there would be no victory. Sin was trapped in the flesh of Jesus the man when Jesus "gave up the ghost". It was conquered when God raised Jesus from the dead. Now we can conquer sin and have power over sin because greater is he that is in us. (I John 4:4) THE WORD WAS NOT “MADE FLESH” IN THE WOMB, WALKING AMONG US, NOR AS HE WAS NAILED TO THE CROSS! THE “WORD WAS MADE FLESH” ON THE CROSS! PRIOR TO THAT HE WAS EMANUEL AS THE PROPHET ISAIAH PROPHESIED AND THAT MEANS “GOD WITH US”.


He sweat blood praying in the garden because He knew He would have to “be made flesh” in order to get the job done. Satan would never tackle a battle with Jesus as long as Satan could see and feel the power of God in and coming from Jesus!


When Jesus cried out Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani (some interpret ‘Father Father why have you forsaken me’ and some interpret ‘My God my God why have you forsaken me’); that is when THE MAN cried out because the power of GOD and the essence of GOD was TAKEN AWAY and JESUS “WAS MADE FLESH” so hell could and Satan WOULD hit Jesus with everything Satan had for the past present and future. When the MAN-FLESH had it all HE said “It is finished” and HE “GAVE UP THE GHOST” trapping everything in death and conquering it in HIS resurrection when the power and essence of GOD entered into HIM again!


AGAPE` LOVE IS A GOD WHO ALLOWED HIS ESSENCE, THE SPIRIT OF AGAPE` LOVE, TO BE “MADE FLESH” SO HE COULD SUFFER AND DIE FOR US TO BE RESTORED TO OUR ZOE LIFE, WALKING AND TALKING RELATIONSHIP, WITH GOD! If something touches you, your flesh soul and spirit know you are touched and the feeling is known throughout your being. The fullness of God felt what Jesus suffered on the cross. He did not create an angel or some other being to do the job. He did it himself.John 15:13 "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for a friend."Receive the gift of life and be a friend of God


                                               GET WHAT BUDDHA WANTED YOU TO HAVE WITHOUT BECOMING A BUDDHIST


Buddha was given insight by God so that Buddha might find a life WITH God, but the 'man and worldly things got in the way. There is a U-tube video testimony by a monk who served for many years then died and days later came back to life. The fact that the monk was dead for a number of days, when he came back to life is detailed in his testimony and backed by good evidence.  Find the video on U-tube by searching for "Monk sees Buddha in hell". If you are a Buddhist, get what Buddha wanted you to have.  If you are a Christian, get what Buddha realized without becoming a Buddhist.  The fact that Buddha wanted his people to have a more abundant life and he wanted the people to seek enlightenment is an admired goal that is well known. He wanted the people to seek wisdom and knowledge. If someone offered you what Buddha wanted you to have and it would cost you nothing more than saying I accept this gift: would you accept it or are you so caught up in the search that you do not really want what you are looking for?


A more abundant life filled with wisdom, knowledge, healing, forgiveness, and selfless LOVE is available to you. You cannot only connect with the source of all Creation, you can walk and talk with the source of all creation.  Read John 1 verse 1 thru 13. Pride causes some to reject this free gift and continue a religion of searching. Wasting half a life and then getting right with God is better than PRIDE making you waste a whole life. The end of total waste is eternal separation from God. Fear causes others to say no and miss what Buddha wanted them to have.What you think you have, you do not really have because it will pass away and cease to exist. What we have with God will last forever.


In John 10:10 Jesus said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”   (Jesus IS the abundant life Buddha wants the people to have but Buddha never got to meet Jesus and receive what he searched for. YOU have the opportunity right now by the GRACE, DESIGN and LOVE of GOD to get what you are supposed to be searching for.)


Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.


KJV


Heb 6:17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: KJV (This is God’s covenant to make enlightenment available to us every time we want and need it.)

2 Peter 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. KJV (Through Christ we can walk and talk with God. We get gifts from His Holy Spirit and they include wisdom, knowledge, discernment, healing, and more. We are even shown that we are to talk with God our Father and get what we need to know from a Father who IS AGAPE LOVE and love never fails.)I Cor. 13:8 is often listed as Charity.  It should be AGAPE LOVE never faileth.  Many new translations dilute the strength of this statement.


                                      WILL YOU RECEIVE THIS FREE GIFT OF ABUNDANT LIFE AND ENLIGHTENMENT TODAY?

Start your walk with God by focusing on the creator of all things. Focus on God Almighty.  Tell God you want the whole package and then open your heart and let God pour in. God hears the heart and He comes in to us through the heart. His presense in us is made alive, quickened, by the Spirit of God. The old man died and a new loving person is born. I Cor. 15:36 and Ephesians 2:1 and 5. Collosians 2:13  and I Peter 3:18.; Romans 6:23


                                                                                            BIBLE WORDS TO REMEMBER

Covet earnestly


NT:2206

"Many new interpretations have changed the actual word used in the original text of the Greek and Hebrew to fit their attempt and desire to help people gain a better beginning of understanding. While the 'intent' is good, the result has diluted the power in many Bible verses.  In this passage IF you get the picture portrayed by taking the last five statements of 2206 and letting them form a picture in your mind and spirit, the picture should be spot on."

Moses and Aaron   


Ex 12:7-9


7 Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the door frames of the houses where they eat the lambs. 8 That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast. 9 Do not eat the meat raw or cooked in water, but roast it over the fire--head, legs and inner parts.


THE WORD OF GOD IS A TYPE OF AND SYMBOL OF THINGS TO COME AS WELL AS A LITERAL HAPPENING.
PASSOVER AND WHAT HAPPENED IN EGYPT WAS A TYPE OF JESUS SETTING ALL OF US FREE – DEATH, HELL AND THE GRAVE NO LONGER HAVE A GRIP ON US.       


COINS SHOWN LUKE 15:8 – 10


Matthew 25 is the parable of the “talent” or coin that was given to three individuals – one got one and one got two and one got five. The talent was usually refined gold or silver and it is a type of or symbol of your salvation and the gifts of the Spirit – to be directed and matured by the Agape' LOVE of our Heavenly Father. (I Cor. 12 and the last verse and all of Chapter 13.) Read John 13:34 and KNOW the original text is AGAPE' one another as I have AGAPED you. When you see something, ask yourself if your view is AGAPE' ; Ask if your feelings towards whatever is AGAPE'; ask if what you want to do or say is AGAPE'. IF it does not fit, you must quit".


WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH YOUR TALENT – PASSOVER AND GIFTS?

Acts 13:1 Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetriarch, and Saul.
2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work where unto I have called them.
3 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
4 So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.
5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.
6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-jesus:
7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.
8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
10 And said, O full of all sutilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.
12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
13 Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.
14 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.
15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.
16 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience.
17 The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought he them out of it.
18 And about the time of forty years suffered he their manners in the wilderness.
19 And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, he divided their land to them by lot.
20 And after that he gave unto them judges about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet.
21 And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years.
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will.
23 Of this man's seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Savior, Jesus:
24 When John had first preached before his coming the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
25 And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think ye that I am? I am not he. But, behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose.
26 Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.
27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
28 And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain.
29 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulcre.
30 But God raised him from the dead:
31 And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people.
32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers,
33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.
35 Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:
37 But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.
38 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.
42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.
43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.
45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
49 And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region.
50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and honorable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.
51 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.
52 And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.


                                                                                                SUCCESSFUL WITNESSING


Arguing theology will convert the few but not the many.


Every false religion has a degree or portion of truth. That truth is the common ground we must start with. When you take what is right you ‘agree with your adversary’ as in Matt 5:25, “Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison”. (KJV) The later part of the scripture shows what happens when you argue theology. When you take what is right and find the common ground to start on the adversary is not ‘ready to fight and defend his or her position’ so you can show them more of what they are REALLY looking for. Every human being is REALLY looking to fill that place God put in all of us for Him to dwell.


Point out the fact that there is an emptiness they cannot fill (that is why they go from challenge to challenge and shortly after each achievement they feel empty again), a thirst they cannot quench (that is why they go from one relationship to another and one friendship to another and find only momentary satisfaction for their thirst for a meaningful relationship), and a hunger they cannot satisfy and that is because God put a place in every human being for Him to dwell (that is why it is in every human being to seek and acknowledge some form of higher power) and the emptiness is not filled until He is in His place inside our Spirit and Soul and that He comes in through our heart. Jesus said He stands at the door of our heart and knocks. He said He is the “bread of life – the manna from heaven that satisfies the hunger we have. He told the woman at the well that He is the living water and that if she drank of His water she would thirst no more. He quenches our thirst. When we let Him in He fills the emptiness, satisfies the hunger, and quenches the thirst.


When we do it God’s way He gives us signs following. The primary tools are Prophecy, Word of knowledge, and word of wisdom. 1 Cor 14:24 “But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: 25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.” (KJV) Every time a believer witnesses the person being witnessed to is a judge of what you say. This witnessing procedure is how you agree with the adversary and bring the adversary into agreement with you thus converting an adversary into an ally and friend – even making many family as they join the family of Christ the Messiah.


This is how we “give diligence” as in Luke 12:58 “When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.”


KJV


God showed me and taught me this when He called me to be His witness and told me to ‘go and prepare the way of His coming – get the Bride ready for the Bridegroom and compel them to come to the wedding’. “Share my LOVE and TRUTH but do not tolerate evil as you do this. Agree with what is right and let my LOVE expose what is wrong! The battle is to be won by the conversion of the enemies – not by their defeat. What they suffer they will bring on themselves. It is not my will that any should suffer but that all might have eternal life! They WILL come to me one way or another. They will come the easy way or the hard way through great suffering; but they WILL come! The person who coined the phrase ‘Make it easy on yourself’ didn’t realize the wisdom in the phrase I gave him. Now you DO realize the wisdom and the picture of what will be!”


The name it and claim it doctrine and you must have something wrong with your Christian walk if you are not rich is a doctrine that angers God and has hurt His church. The blessings he pours down that are ‘pressed down, shaken, and overflowing’ are heavenly blessings and earthly blessings are at times included. He will “provide our needs” NOT all our wants. When it says “He will give us the desires of our heart” that scripture ties together with scriptures that tell us our hearts innermost desire, “sunedomei”


Psalm 1, is supposed to be His word and law. It also ties together with scriptures that show us He will give our heart new desires and He will fulfill those desires! If our innermost desire is His word, His law, and being in His presence 24/7 then we have His word in our heart and He WILL fulfill His word. At that point we WILL “pray without ceasing”, “watch always”, “do all things as unto the Lord”, and all the rest of the things the bible tells us to DO. IF we have a momentary fall it is MUCH EASIER to get up and get going again and the day WILL come when we fall no more but we will “soar as the eagles” and be WITH HIM! We are to let people know where the TRUE RICHES are!


WE ARE NOT TO ARGUE THEOLOGY


WE ARE TO CONVERT!


GET PEOPLE TO ACCEPT GOD’S AGAPE’ LOVE AND HIS LOVE WILL START THE CLEAN UP PROCESS AUTOMATICALLY!


LOVE YOUR ENEMY!!!


                                                                                        THE RAPTURE AND RAPTURE PRACTICE


Here, again, we see too much energy misplaced and erroneous answers to try and settle things. I will make a few points God put in my spirit and soul when I was called.
1.    God made many things three in one and He does many things three in one so we can understand Him and get the picture of who and what He is.
a.    The WORD of God is three in one with literal, typology (a type of something), and Symbolology (a symbol of something). Sometimes one of these levels of understanding is clear and we must find the other two, or two are clear and we must find the third, etc.
b.    The SUN in our solar system is a planet of mass mixed with gas and energy. This heavenly body that is essential to LIFE on earth is a planet, light, and warmth.
c.    Man is a three part being of flesh, soul, and spirit with the body being three primary parts of heart, mind, and flesh (or the house that contains the other two parts).
d.    An egg has a shell that protects the egg white and the egg yoke. The egg white feeds the yoke so a chick can grow inside and break out of the shell. (God’s food comes through the spirit – quickened or made alive by the spirit – and into the soul to feed the spirit man so we can grow inside and break out of the protective flesh house we are in.)
2.    We need to keep this tree are one in mind as we study God and what God is doing or going to do. As in the baptism of water for repentance and remission of sin and having a touch of LOVE with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, then the baptism of the Holy Spirit for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and a greater understanding of the Father’s LOVE, praying for discernment…a revelation and baptism in the Father’s LOVE: then we understand ONE GOD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, ONE LORD OF ALL and more.


Now let us look at the rapture. There are good scriptural and epistle evidence for all three rapture theories: pre-tribulation rapture because God will keep us from suffering and a lot of other scriptures that indicate pre-tribulation rapture, Mid tribulation rapture because GOD is going to protect us as we go through like He protected Shadrak, Mishak, and Abendigo in the fires of the furnace and the witnesses will prophecy for three and a half years and they are part of the church God will not leave behind. There are more indicators here also. Post tribulation rapture because GOD gives every possible chance for every soul to get saved, it is not His will that any should perish so He will ‘bring us through’ and more.


Now lets consider a few points in all of this! What if God “takes” a bunch of believers pre-tribulation to WAKE UP the sleeping and slothful? What if He “takes” a second wave mid tribulation to down the ‘nay Sayers and their explanatory lies’? What if, after these two waves and the witnesses He then takes the third wave post tribulation and then, when “these three are one” and the RAPTURE is complete HE returns with tens of thousands of His saints…as written in the bible? SOMETHING TO PONDER – BUT –   I HAVE A GREATER THING TO PONDER THAN THIS – I WILL SHOW YOU A MORE EXCELLENT THEORY AND TEACHING THAT CAME FROM GOD PERSONALLY!!!


“When you die, draw your last breath on earth as a believer, YOUR rapture just came. YOU ARE OFF THIS EARTH AND STAND BEFORE THE LORD!!! BE instant in season and out of season, watch always lest you be caught unaware, pray without ceasing, do ALL things as unto the Lord, in ALL your ways acknowledge HIM and HE WILL direct your paths, the footsteps of a righteous person ARE predestined by the LORD! WATCH, AND AGAIN I WAY WATCH!!!

Job 11:1 Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,
2 Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified?
3 Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?
4 For thou hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.
5 But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against thee;
6 And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.
7 Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?
8 It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?
9 The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
10 If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him?
11 For he knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it?
12 For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.
13 If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him;
14 If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.
15 For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear:
16 Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away:
17 And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
18 And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.
19 Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee.
20 But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.
KJV


Psalms 51:1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.


Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.


2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.


3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.


4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.


5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
KJV


Matthew 12:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.


Luke 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.


Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

13(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified).


Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
13(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
15 But not as the offense, so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offenses unto justification.
17 For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
