Finding the Way of Salvation
Most Christians are of the belief that God is going to come down from heaven and save us from all of the evils of the world, the flesh, and the devil without any effort or participation of ourselves.
However God’s plan of salvation was to manifest Himself within the believer as His church: the body of Himself manifest by Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit to enable the believer to overcome the things of the world. But only Grace that works by faith will produce the workings of God in the believer (Eph 2:1-10).
The Scriptures testify that it is only the overcomers that receive the blessings of God (1 Jn 5:4-5, Rev2:26, 3:21). The church has been stuck in the “first heaven reality”, and has little knowledge of the second and third heaven realities where the power of God resides. There is a process of deification that God calls the believer to complete in order to be fully human in the divine sense.
The whole creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God (Rm 8). Satan has been hell bent to destroy God’s creation and humanity from the beginning, and he has largely done this by religious deception. The only thing that will stop this process will be for the church to come alive in Christ and to be perfected even as the heavenly Father is perfect (Mt 5:48), which is the real work of the ministry of God to the saints (Eph 4), to equip the saints to do spiritual warfare against the principalities and powers and defeat them (Eph 6:10-20).
When the church wakes up to the above truth it will begin to become free, along with the whole creation! “You will know the truth and the truth will make you free. ” (Jn 8:31-32).
Jesus made it clear that those who did iniquity to depart from Him (Mt 7:21-23). Only those who do righteous in God’s name are protected by God (Ps 91, 95, 99, 107). Some will be taken from the earth, and some will be left (Ps 104:35, Mt 24:40-41). Meditation on, and being a doer of the word, is God’s way for those who are His and will be protected by Him (Ps 119).
Yes, God does it, but only through His matured Saints working by the power of the Almighty God in them. The root meaning of religion is to reconnect with God in a relational way, in word and deed . What are we waiting for?
These are puzzling words from Scripture. We are told that the coming of Christ is in the future yet Scripture says that “He comes quickly.” I believe that the second epistle of Peter deals with this issue. The first chapter is about the way of truth through Christ in our heart. The second chapter deals with false teachers that would confuse this truth. And the third chapter deals with the question of the coming of Christ, and necessity to grow in grace.
The purpose of this blog is what I have discovered is the purpose of life itself. My goal is to lay down the path to self – discovery rather than simply to relay information, or beliefs that I may have. God has placed within each of us the ability to discover the way, the truth, and the life from the divine authority within our own spirit, since our spirit – self is already one with our heavenly father’s Spirit. Our task is to allow that which hinders this knowledge and inner authority and to dismantle it by the power of God. My prayer is that all who seek the way of love, life, and truth will find it in its fullness.
We are living at a time when humanity is beginning to wake up to the understanding that our true nature is not limited to this physical body but indeed has been created in the image of God. In His image we have been endowed with the attributes of God. This means that we do not have to remain stuck with the limitations of this mortal body, but that the good news is that this mortal can, and must put on immortality in order to experientially know the power and promises of God. Using this blog as a medium of communication, I will attempt to share some of the most important nuggets of truth have helped to transform my life and continues to do so. To get the most out of what I share, I suggest that you slowly read the material with the bible scriptures and then write in your own words what you fell you are hearing within your won heart and spirit. This will help develop your own awareness of Go’s voice and wisdom within yourself.
