For is not the Word of the clear? Now listen to the Words of God and His Christ.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 (KJV) 7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            2 Peter 2:1-22 (KJV) 1  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 2  And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3  And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingered not, and their damnation slumbered not.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         4  For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5  And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6  And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       7  And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8  (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       9  The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 10  But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. 11  Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    12  But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13  And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceiving’s while they feast with you; 14  Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            15  Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16  But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          17  These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 18  For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19  While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       20  For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            21  For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22  But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Remember we must walk in Christ example. Not in the example of the False believers and Prophets.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  3 John 1:9-11 (KJV) 9  I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, received us not. 10                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he does, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbids them that would, and casts them out of the church.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that does good is of God: but he that does evil hath not seen God.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Now read the scriptures and see what God requires of us to be Born Again, of the Faith of Obedience to God’s Will.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         1 John 3:9-11 (KJV) 9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loves not his brother.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          11  For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             1 John 4:6-8 (KJV) 6  We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.                                                                                                                                                                                                7  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God. 8  He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 1 John 5:1-6 (KJV) 1  Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and everyone that loves him that begat loves him also that is begotten of him. 2  By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.      3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           4  For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. 5  Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God? 6  This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       1 John 5:17-19 (KJV) 17  All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. 18  We know that whosoever is born of God sins not; but he that is begotten of God keeps himself, and that wicked one touches him not. 19  And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       https://www.thewordspiritandtruth.org

For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; And ye have respect to him that wears the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              If ye fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      So let us forsake the things of the world and seek first the kingdom of God and the soul and spirit.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       https://www.thewordspiritandtruth.org


Do We Understand Salvation

Do We Understand Salvation?
 
Brothers and Sisters, do we really understand salvation? Do we not have the knowledge that Christ died once for all, His blood covers sin once for all and we become Born Again, Indwelled with the Holy Spirit once? And “where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.”? For if we are Born Again, Indwelled. We have no need of forgiveness of sin for we cannot and will not willfully sin again.
 
So if we understand? Why do we continue in sin? Or why do we try to make excuses, using the scriptures as our defense, that all have sinned? For it is written;
 
Romans 1:19-21 (KJV) 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead;
 
so that they are without excuse:
 
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
 
Now take heed and read the truth of God’s Word. And ask ourselves, are we Born Again according to the scriptures, the Word of God, Christ Jesus?
 
Romans 3:22-25 (KJV) Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
 
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
 
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness
 
for the remission of sins that are past,
 
through the forbearance of God;
 
Hebrews 10:5-18 (KJV) 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou would not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
 
7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou would not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
 
11 And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 14 For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.
 
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
 
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
 
1 John 3:6-11 (KJV) 6 Whosoever abides in him sinned not: whosoever sinned hath not seen him, neither known him. 7 Little children let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
 
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remained in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
 
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
 
11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
 
So, let us ask ourselves, do we live with the Indwelling of our soul? Or do we live with the excuses of our flesh? https://www.thewordspiritandtruth.org
 


Our Salvation is in Our own Hands. So Test All the Spirits

Our Salvation is in Our own Hands. So Test All the Spirits!
 
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? —unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
 
1 Thessalonians 5: 14-24 Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
 
We must test ourselves and all thing according to the Word, in by and through the Word as written.
 
1 Timothy 6:3-5 KJV If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
 
He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness:
 
from such withdraw thyself.
 
Let us trust in the Word, Christ Jesus, through the Letter, the Bible, and the Spirit, the revelation of the Holy Spirit through prayer and fasting. Let us not trust in man and his doctrine, without testing according to the Word of God first. Let us trust not in the doctrine of men and denominations. But in Holy and righteous men of God who speak according to the Holy Spirit, Christ Jesus, as they were told to speak. By in and through the Word in the Letter and Spirit of the Word.
 
1 John 2:16-19 KJV For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abides for ever.
 
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
 
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
 
1 John 4:1-15 KJV Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
 
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God hears not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
 
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God. He that loves not knows not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Here in is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
 
Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and his love is perfected in us.
 
Perfected in our Soul and Eternal Spirit, not our flesh, for the flesh is of the world.
 
Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him, and he in God.


Are we Rejecting or Accepting the Word as written

Are we Rejecting or Accepting the Word as written
 
Mark 7:7-13 KJV How be it in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
 
And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. For Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and, Who so curses father or mother, let him die the death:
 
But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou might be profited by me; he shall be free. And ye suffer him no more to do ought (should) for his father or his mother; Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
 
John 12:44-50 KJV Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that sees me sees him that sent me.
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
 
He that rejects me, and receives not my words, hath one that judges him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
 
For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
 
Hebrews 6:4-8 KJV For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
 
For the earth which drinks in the rain that comes often upon it, and brings forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receives blessing from God: But that which bears thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
 
Hebrews 12:12-29 KJV Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
 
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
 
Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
 
For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard entreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
 
But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.
 
See that ye refuse not him that speaks. For if they escaped not who refused him that spoke on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaks from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
 
Wherefore we receive a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.

The Perfecting of the Soul and Eternal Spirit

The Perfecting of the Soul and Eternal Spirit
 
Brothers and Sisters, the process of salvation by Faith, is the perfecting of the Soul and Eternal Spirit and not the Flesh. For the Flesh is the Body of sin and of the world.
 
Genesis 3:19 KJV In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it were thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
 
John 6:63 KJV It is the spirit that quickened; the flesh profited nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
 
Romans 8:27 KJV And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
 
Romans 12:1-2 KJV I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
 
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
 
1 Corinthians 15:50 KJV Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.
 
Ephesians 4:20-25 KJV But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
 
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
 
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.
 
The process of perfecting the soul and eternal spirit is the process of becoming Born Again. Which is simply this;
Born of God, Born of the Spirit, Born Again unto Salvation.
 
John 3:3, 5-7 (KJV) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
 
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
 
Romans 10:8-10 (KJV) But what said it? The word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
 
That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and shall believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.
 
For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
 
Romans 12:1-2 (NKJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
 
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
 
Romans 2:28-29 (KJV) For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
 
Romans 3:19-20 (KJV) Now we know that what things so ever the law said, it said to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
 
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
 
Romans 7:5-6 (KJV) For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. 2 Corinthians 3:3-6 (KJV) For as much as you are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
 
And such trust have we through Christ toward God: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit giveth life.
 
1 John 3:9-11 (NKJV) Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
 
In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.
 
For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another,
 
1 John 4:6-8New King James Version (NKJV) We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
 
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
 
1 John 5:1-6New King James Version (NKJV) Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
 
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
 
This is He who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
 
1 John 5:17-19New King James Version (NKJV) All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death.
We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

Why do we still hide or run from the Light

Why do we still hide or run from the Light
 
Brothers and Sisters, are we still running away or hiding our true selves from the light? Are we still trying to hide our sins while professing our Faith?
 
Now read the evidence of the Truth of the Light, and ask ourselves, what are we hiding?
 
Proverbs 8:22-31 (KJV) 22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. 25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was, I brought forth: 26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: 28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: 29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; 31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
 
John 1:1-17 (KJV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
9 That was the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spoke, He that comes after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
 
John 3:19-21 (KJV) 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
 
John 12:36-40 (KJV) 36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spoke Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: 38 That the saying of Esaias (Isaiah) the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias (Isaiah) said again, 40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
The Light is the Word, the Word is Christ, and Christ is God and this is the Light and the Word;
 
Hebrews 4:11-16 (KJV) 11 Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Let us prepare our souls and unite the Spiritual and Physical Body of Christ, preparing God’s House as Sanctuary. The time is short, and we are in the time of separation. For the time of trial and persecution before the tribulation and coming of Christ.

Which does God seek the Spiritual Body, Soul and Eternal Spirit, or the Physical Body, the Flesh?

Which does God seek the Spiritual Body, Soul and Eternal Spirit, or the Physical Body, the Flesh?
 
Let us not twist the spiritual with the physical. With God only our soul and eternal spirit matter.
 
Let us look at what the scriptures say about the flesh. For our true Body is our Spiritual Body which is eternal, the flesh is but dust.
 
Genesis 3:19 KJV In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it were thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
 
John 6:63 KJV It is the spirit that quickened; the flesh profited nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
 
1 Corinthians 15:50 KJV Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
 
The Spiritual and physical bodies
 
1 Corinthians 15:42-49 KJV So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
 
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
 
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
How be it that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
 
The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

Believing and trusting is not enough

Believing and trusting is not enough
 
Believing and trusting is not enough! We must put our Faith into application, be doers and not just hears! And to do that by becoming Born Again according to the Word, Christ Jesus;
 
Born of God, Born of the Spirit, Born Again unto Salvation.
John 3:3, 5-7 (KJV) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Romans 2:28-29 (KJV) For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
 
This is He who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
 
1 John 5:17-19New King James Version (NKJV) All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death.
 
We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
 
If we are still sinning we are not Born Again according to Christ, the Living Word of God.
Read Proverbs 6:12-19 and Romans 1:18-32, if any of it applies to us we are not Born Again.

Unacceptable Sin

Unacceptable Sin
 
Proverbs 6:12-19 (KJV) A naughty person, a wicked man, walked with a froward (perverse) mouth. He winked with his eyes, he speaks with his feet, he teaches with his fingers; Frowardness (perversity) is in his heart, he devises mischief continually; he sows discord. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy. These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren.
 
Romans 1:18-32 (KJV) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
 
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
 
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.
 
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
 
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
 
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
 
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
 
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
