What will heaven be like?

One of the biggest questions a person will have to answer after attending church for a while, is:

“Is everyone included in God’s plan of salvation?”

Most of the established church folks will say “yes, but they need to personally accept it via faith”.  How can we do that when it says that it is the faith of Jesus Christ that saves us and not our own.  Check out Romans 3:26.

in the tolerance of-the God toward in-showing of-the justice of-him in the now season into the to-be him just and one-justifying the-one out of-belief of-Jesus Romans 3:26

The belief that justifies us (forgives our sinful nature) is (OUT) of Jesus.  It’s HIS faith and not ours.

That faith is a gift that does not come out of you.  See Ephesians 2:8

to-the for grace ye-are ones-having-BEEN-saved THRU the belief and this NOT OUT of-you, of-God the oblation (gift)  Ephesians 2:8

It doesn’t matter what your religious beliefs are,  you are included.    As long as you have a dying, natural human body (of Adam).  See 1 Cor 15:22,  on of my all-time favorite verses.

as-even for in the Adam all are-from-dying thus and in the anointed (Christ) all shall-be-being-made-alive 1 Cor 15:22

All that are dying shall be made eternally alive.  Trust it.

Make it a great day.

 

Have you ever been told that once a person “believes in Jesus” that the Holy Spirit will come and live inside that person?

Doesn’t this cause us to also believe that our own actions are causing God to do something?

Is that the way God works?  Or is it the other way around?

What does scripture say?  Do we cause the Holy Spirit to act or does God?

Let’s look at Acts 10:45 in the original words and see.Continue reading

Do you ever wonder what it would look like if we could peek under the veil of the spirit?  Why is their a veil anyway?

Are we his “woman” with our “face” (mind) covered?

The words of Jesus are coming to mind.

At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants Matt 11:25

What in the world is Jesus talking about?

Who are the “wise and intelligent”?  Are they the “crafty”?

Also, who are the “infants”?  Surely, a baby can’t understand ways of God, can it?

Please allow me to point a little to what I am seeing in this powerful “undercover” work.Continue reading

If I were God, was all-powerful, and I truly loved all people and wanted them to be with me forever, how would I cause this to occur?

What if I made a person’s imperfection or what the Bible calls “sin” their “free ticket” to receive my OWN perfect righteousness and thus be with me forever?  Do you think they would be thankful when they found out about this free eternally good gift?

If I were God, would I have the power to do this?  Wouldn’t this be a “foolproof” plan?

Now, certainly, I am not smarter than God, right?Continue reading

Ever feel divided between "good" and "bad"?

Ever feel divided between a “good me” and “bad me”?

Do you ever feel like you have a “good” me and a “bad” me?

Like you have two separate and opposing people together as one.  You know, two opposing “me’s” or spiritual bodies that make up one “I”.

This is something I struggle with as my “two me’s” are more apparent than most. Two days “up”, the next down. Two down and three “up”. Then, down again. Boy, it can make a person wonder if they are two separate people at times.

Maybe it isn’t full days, but more like experiences. One “good”, one “bad”. Either way it is like the old idea of having a “good angel” on one shoulder and “the devil” on the other.

So, if this happens to you, please know you are not alone.

Today, I find myself back in Genesis 2 and 3 reviewing the “garden scene”.  I see so many amazing things edenoccurring there that I hope will be “eye opening” to you.

These are things that I suspect you haven’t heard but I believe are very good.  I pray it will give you a WHOLE new inspiring view of what is often called “the fall of man” and a whole new outlook on mankind and even yourself.  I know it has dramatically changed my view of who I am.

Before we do this, let’s ask the following question.

What are the parts of a man?  What is a human made of?Continue reading

The mystery of God from our natural view.

The mystery of God from our natural view.

Warning:  The following will sound like the words of a crazy person. 

They are.

I woke up this morning a couple hours early and couldn’t sleep again.  Then, as I was becoming more awake, I heard a conversation going on again in my mind which has occurred many times before.  Once I realized it wasn’t going to stop, I got up and started writing down what I heard.

I wrote for 3+ hours and was hoping I could share it with you, but it is not very understandable for our natural, linear human mind as it has too many topics all woven together.  I couldn’t find the words to make it linear.  So, I kept it for myself or I would be asking you to untangle a barrel of fish hooks.  I don’t think I would like doing that, so I won’t ask you to.

Then, I stumbled upon this verse which is very close to being an epic summary of much of what I was hearing and writing.

Before we look at it, I a wondering if there is anyone truly seeking the truth who is willing to accept what it is really saying and dig deeper into it?

If you are, I can promise you that you will find both LIFE and the author of life, my friend.  If you are still with me, please consider these words carefully and then let’s ask some questions.Continue reading

Here is something that I pray will really encourage you today.  Check out this verse in it’s original words and consider this question.

Who is it that God is telling us that practices good or evil?

The truth is indeed, VERY good my friend.  May we both hear his words of truth and life in our heart, mind today.

 

I pray this Friday is finding you resting in his grace and love.

I have been through hell the past 3-6 months.  Been totally lost in darkness, chaos and confusion.  Had little to no desire to search for him or read his Word.  Fear crept in and was (and still is) controlling me.

Friend, I don’t know if you have ever been in a similar spot, but if you have, you know the torment and turmoil one can go through when all the things he has trusted in are crumbling all around you.

I don’t know how I will make my next house payment as business has ground to a halt.  I don’t know how I will restore the connection to my teenager.  I don’t know how to get reconnected.  But, I do know that our loving father does and I am asking him daily to help me with these things.  He must do them as I can’t.  “I” am only dead weight and my ways are of the flesh which are under the “letter of the law” and only seem to kill me 2 Corinthians 3:6.  I find my ways are all dead ends.

In short, I believe I have “lost Jesus” who is life.  John 14:6.  Simon Peter’s answer in John 6:68 is upon my heart often as I beg him to please finish the work inside soon.

Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life John 6:68
