Everyone have a opportunity to dwell in a Eden of ageless life after leaving this present human race in death. Supreme Being do no regard of persons. He names "everyone" to repentance. However, there are just a choice "few" who actually reply this phone call and have a borne again spirit from God. These are the chosen 1s Bible talks about. After receiving the borne again spirit, life is still no windfall train, and it makes not intend a individual will then be forever blessed with all sorts of prosperity, good wellness and so on. It only intends you have got received "the initial ticket," that Pbs to the Gates of Heaven and a Eden of ageless life. This initial ticket is mainly a spirit of instruction manual from the Holy Place Ghost. If those instruction manual are followed, a individual is then known to Supreme Being as being obedient and one who Loves God.
Obedience is better than any other sort of forfeit a individual can offer up to God. Obedience is the cogent evidence of a person's true love for God. If a individual keeps proper obeisance twenty-four hours in and twenty-four hours out, minute after minute of each 24 hr period, they stay as God's True Elect, which is a very few figure of people human race wide. Those few true elect are all walking on a consecutive and narrow nerve pathway retention their ticket of instruction manual stopping point to their Black Maria as a mulct hoarded wealth on their manner to a Eden of ageless life… but still not there until the last breath go forths our body, perfect and pure in bosom is all that volition actually see God. I name the perfect and pure in bosom as being "the existent key" that volition unlock the gate of Heaven and on into ageless life of Paradise.
Another name we can name the perfect and pure in heart, the true elect of God, is "a Prisoner of the Lord."
Now, Paul, the Apostle, is a true illustration of a Prisoner of the Lord, to all coevals and all races of this human race that came after him. In the book of Ephesians, Chapter 3, poetry 1, Alice Alice Paul the Apostle writes: "For this cause I Paul, the captive of Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus for you Gentiles, if ye have got heard of the dispensation of the saving grace of Supreme Being which is given me to you-ward: How that by disclosure he made known unto me the mystery; as I wrote afore in few words, whereby when ye read, ye may understand my cognition in the enigma of Christ. What Alice Alice Paul the Apostle is telling us here is: Read what I have got written for you, all that come up after me, for I am a echt illustration of what a Prisoner of the Godhead actually is.
Now Paul was a adult male who did not actually desire to function God. He was called respective modern times before he finally answered the call. After he answered, his life was not made much better than it was before he answered. He asked Supreme Being three modern times to take a irritant that was in his side, and Supreme Being never did take the thorn. He suffered many things to be able to prophesy the Gospel of Christ. He was not a adult male who was all that well thought of, and who was greeted in the marketplaces and the streets with "Hello, there Brother Paul, the Great Apostle, so nice to have got run into you today." "See you in Church Lord'S Day morning."
Paul was made a curate according to the gift of the saving grace of Supreme Being given to him by the effectual workings of his power. He was not a adult male who placed a Book in his arm after graduating from Curate College, and subsiding into some nice parish with a nice house to dwell in sitting beside it. A Prisoner is one who travels and come ups at the bid of his master. Most likely, Alice Paul had no certain home topographic point and often did not cognize where he would be from hebdomad to week. His teaching, his instructions, his instruction came consecutive from the Grace of Supreme Being and the Holy Place Ghost which he received once he finally answered the phone call of repentance. Alice Paul was to do all work force see what the true family of the enigma of Jesus really was and is still today. This is kind of something even from the beginning that is hidden to the eyes and the Black Maria of most work force and women, and something that tin only be learned and revealed only through receiving the Holy Place Ghost. You make not larn this in Book Colleges!
Fellowship with Jesus is not a perfect bed of roses and makes not vouch a better life in this life in any shape, word form or fashion. Family with Jesus intends just simply to be one of his echt Prisoners. As a Prisoner of Christ, we cannot faint when trials come up our way, but we must bow down our knee joints unto the Godhead Jesus Of Nazareth Christ, of whom the whole household in Heaven and Earth is named, so that he can allow you according to the wealth of his glorification (which eventually is Eden in ageless life), and to beef up by the mighty powerfulness of Supreme Being the interior man.
Forget about what that outer visual aspect looks like for the moment. Howbeit, at all modern times we are commanded to be descent, there just is no other type of outer costume or traditional frock that must be worn in order to demo the human race a visible light of any kind. Decency in our style of outer garments is all the Godhead requires. But that interior adult male is what the Godhead trusts to strengthen, and have to be strengthened, if he or she will obtain the cardinal to unlock heaven's gates. And to cognize the love of Christ, which go throughs the earthly cognition of adult male and adult female so that we might be filled with all the comprehensiveness of Supreme Being instead.
Our outer garments should be the whole armor of Supreme Being so that we will be able to stand up against the trickeries of the devil. Believe me; a tattoo on the shoulder or a T-shirt saying I am a Christian or any such as thing as this, or outfits of all matching colours is not going to support us in any manner against the trickeries of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the regulations of the darkness of this world, against Negro spiritual evil in high places. This is why it is of import to have got a strong interior bosom with Supreme Being and an outer visual aspect not of a certain type of clothes or tattoo or any such as thing as this, but that our outer garments are actually our "obedience" to the instruction manual we have from the Holy Place Ghost in the beginning of our walkings with Jesus and every minute that we dwell as a Prisoner to Christ.
The outer garment that is our visible light to the human race is having the whole armor of Supreme Being upon us, so that we can stand up strong against the enemy, which is the Satan and all his wicked spirits, having our pubes girded with the truth, our aegis should be covered with righteousness (again this is our obedience) and our feet shod with the readying of the Gospel of peace (this significance we should transport ourselves on ft through this land spreading the Gospel with "peace" and not with conceited glorification efforts or contentions about the word, but with peace. Take the shield of religion so we can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked when they come up at us. Put on our caputs not a pinkish chapeau that lucifers the frock and place we are wearing, but a "helmet of salvation," which is again our behaviours and obeisance that Pbs to that salvation, and last of all the blade of the Spirit, which is the word of God. We must have on a shield of faith. Without religion none of us can cognize Supreme Being and his instruction manual for us. Pray always, so that vocalizations can be given and we can open up our oral cavities boldly, not being afraid of the adversary, to make known the true enigma of the gospel.
Now for those who are able to make more than and to do exceedingly abundantly above all that is asked or is thought of, and always according to the powerfulness of Supreme Being that plant within that person, allow him be "Glory" in the Christian church by Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus throughout all clip and coevals in this human race and with no end. A echt captive of Supreme Being goes an extremely "hard worker" for the church. Bashes this mean value the Christian church that is down on 5th Street? It intends the World Wide Church in all four corners of the Earth is what the Christian church is. It have no certain name of Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Whitsunday or Jew. Hard worker makes not intend painting, remodeling, decorating, cleaning the church, pace gross sales and throwing immense banquets; it intends in the Negro spiritual things of God, a echt captive of the Godhead actually executes some difficult work for the church. You might say, oh, well I thought it meant being a Lord'S Day school instructor for the small children on Lord'S Day morning…..
Also as a captive of the Godhead intends to walk worthy of the career in which we are called. Now here we travel again with "obedience." Obedience intends a batch to the Lord; and obeisance of what? The Ten Commandments, but the first two is the mightiest of all of them and in which all the other laws hang upon. Obey the first two commandments and you are on your manner to Paradise.
Paul said he suffered shipwreck, he suffered perils, he suffered nudity and he was project into prison house for being a Prisoner of the Lord, and for delivering the Gospel as it was given him of the Holy Place Ghost. I inquire just why he suffered nakedness. Don't you believe it was probably the people he preached to that would not have him; they probably tore his clothing off of him in choler at him for his words of instruction manual from the Holy Place Ghost. A echt captive of Supreme Being is not always a adult male or adult female who is well liked. When we have got to convey difficult expressions to rebellious and stubborn people, they might acquire a small awful dorsum to us. I conceive of this is why Alice Paul suffered nudity at times, the Bible makes not travel into great item as to what this means, and I am just imagining that this may have got been the cause. I cognize he was set into prison house for sermon the gospel.
So why in this human race would anyone desire to be a Prisoner of Jesus if they might have got to endure because of it? It is not for those things we can see and cognize of in this present world, but it is for those things promised us after this human race have passed away, and that is Eden in Ageless Life.
Next clip the telecasting preacher man states you to direct them $50 to pray for you to go prosperous, don't believe it. It is just not true, but all prevarications arise from the father of lies, which is Shaytan himself. Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus will not ever state you to direct him money for any of his services.
Many are called, but few are chosen. It is up to each individual if they desire to be chosen, and a batch of people are just not willing to endure "anything" to be a captive of Christ. Most people look for what is in it for them right now, right this very minute (lovers of themselves and of the flesh rather than of God) and if they can't see or experience something at the present moment, they just maintain on walking down that broad nerve pathway with all their buddies, of which, there are many, for Hell have enlarged itself because there are so many people "choosing" and therefore destined to travel there.
