This is a place to shower in the perfection of the glorious accomplishment of God that we ourselves are. Unearned, unwarranted, unmerited by our own contributions, only 100% pure GIFT language. God's Goodness is a Gift. He isn't only "Good" to "the Good" but He is equally "Good" to all!
Going to anyone except God for anything only affords occasions to fail to afford or qualify for what it is that you desire. Having to satisfy a standard set by the one we consider to be the source of that thing we need makes of satisfying that one TOO HUGE a deal. When the satisfaction of that one, whose satisfaction our livelihoods depend on, appears to demand too much and sustain ourselves feels to be more than it be worth, our own estimation of ourselves diminish and our ability to prove our value to ourselves suffers namely because the work required was too great for us. It looked like we failed at finding ourselves worth enough to make the sacrifices necessary for our happiness, but we'd been cajoled into believing our happiness would require our sacrifice! Jesus raised from the grave was God's receipt of that thing we desire to attain thinking it would depend on our own personal sacrifice.
What if someone steals something from some rich person and then offers to sell it …
To abandon fanciful ignorance and take even the slightest action from a place of accepting, approving of, and relying on what is indeed TRUE in the present moment honors God. A movement that's in honor of the adequacy of the truth memorializes God's enduring goodness in this, His eternal present moment! Life's response to THIS manner of action is favor; His favor accomplishes far more towards the end of assuring our next season's gains and harvests, than even the most elaborate, well-planned, well-funded, will-backed effort to attack, sever, and escape what "bad" we'd encountered and accepted as being a part of our God-Given circumstances on planet Earth!
Often, things in time presently appear to "fall short" of the Glory of God on Earth. God is Spirit, and often something physically present on Earth appears to be standing at odds with what has been declared as true by God. In ever such circumstance, the Truth of what is True remains unhindered …
Just had a wild thought. I remembered in Genesis when God said, "but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die." Our Ancestors BOTH ate from that tree. Even being in denial of ones own ancestral relation to Adam and Eve does nothing to change the clear historical record of the death of all of the descendants of men on Earth, so we've all come from a history of DEAD ancestors. Can a dead seed ever produce life? If a dead race were to have any hope of one day becoming alive, there'd be no other hope than the hope of someday somehow being resurrected! Our only hope in life is to triumph over death; any genuine good news would have to at least first BEGIN with resurrection, because having all inherited life on Earth through human ancestors who die, true and all-consuming joy would require that we, at the very least, live out of reach of ever being defined by any of our ancestor's failure…
Seeing eye to eye with the one above us confirmed our freedom from minority status.
Whenever a minority boasts that they "had to work "twice as hard" as
everyone else in order to get where they are? I'm amazed at their
blatant admission of disbelief in their God given equality with others!
One class higher, one class lower. That some foolishly believe this doesn't endorse our believing the same!
While most do consider themselves above at least certain others, if God doesn't agree likewise, what difference would it make to you? Through Jesus, we already know God considers us equal to Himself. His Truth is already in you. What separates you from anyone standing against you is simply this, that you've freely received God's faith in our equal standing as being a blessing and a gift.
If they deny His faith and insist on minority status, they boast in their relatively hard work, but I honestly don't see
anything to boast in. Cain worked harder th…
God left no condition
unsatisfied, so the drive to satisfy conditions can no longer be used to
fuel mankind. If there's anything remaining "unkosher" for humanity,
it's not in the realm of physical food or even our appearances or
behavior, but what's to be avoided is a distorting man-made additive in
the realm of the thought! That is the true leaven we need avoid, the
true Gluten that Jesus proclaims Freedom from.
We are Gods. That
is Final, as it's been from the Beginning. The only thing to be shunned
and avoided, are things God's do not depend upon. What's to be shunned
now is that very same thing that was once to be cleaved to and relied
upon! It's not a sacrifice, it's the relief of what Apostle Paul
described as "Cow-Dung" from having to be lugged around in our person
Like an actor just moments after his show's final
performance, it doesn't take any time at all to realize the old
character he w…
Doesn't Need Anything From Me, If He Did, He'd be Limited to what we
could give apart from what He's given us, which is nothing! We have
nothing He did not first give US. Why then do puppets and idols still
somehow manage to pass themselves off as "Gods" in this world? God, in
this world, practically speaking, would include any thing or anyone
counted and esteemed by man as being as greater than man or that man
considers his good fortune as depending upon. In today's world, that is
one diverse bag of unsalted peanuts
This world's acceptance of just ONE false God figure subjects the
entire race to an inferior definition than the One God gave us in Jesus.
Anything flesh has ever produced that it touted as being greater than
itself, or anything counted as being of greater importance or having
seniority over the one producing it, taking seniority over the needs of
their own flesh? ANYTHING produced by Flesh that's considered [by man]
Eating something that's never defeated hunger is like relying on a human-programmed system to satisfy our desire for sustenance. From infancy, it wasn't milk alone that sustained us, but our awareness of being in the greater one's care. Casting all our cares on this one, we lived carelessly in their care, life beyond limits, beyond fears, beyond impossible. We can have the milk, and the meat but without every bite's association with the saucy marinade of coming from the greater one in whose care we are, it will forever remain less satisfying than even the rapidly fading memory of mommy's formula.
Whatever is able to be produced under law is only inspired by the law's own energy and intention. Everything produced under law references that law and exists to give expression to the law. The law is temporary. The law is dissatisfying, though it demands our satisfaction it is incapable for satisfying us.
Anyone legally tasked with satisfying us fails to satisfy our…
We were accepted into His life. It's not just "life", this space we occupy has an Owner. It's "His" life. We are alive in HIS life; He gave HIS life to us. Because Life is HIS, we thank Him for it. We're thankful for our inclusion in Him and for how that excludes us from ever being excluded. We're thankful for His giving specific definition to the nature of our union with Him so that we'd never be confused. He expresses His union with us in the union with Himself He eternally maintains as the man Jesus Christ..
Back in the B.C. days, we all thought it was all just "life". We let men define to us what life was and let grey-haired people dictate what it was all for. We all consented to all kinds of different weights and measures, but it always was our own to make of what we will. Life was in our hands, and it would be something for which we'd ultimately be proud or something by which we'd be ashamed in the end.
The dissatisfied conditions of earthen vessels can't define us, there's nothing in this new-wine skin of ours to ever associate our bodies with any dissatisfied or dissatisfying condition. By our life-source having been revealed as being the Father of Jesus Christ, we are proven as not being under ANY of humanities' innumerable conditions.
The one condition of our eternal existence is now determined by the One who Himself is the Author and Possessor of Eternal Existence. He is the One who has the authority to give His Eternal Existence to whomever He chooses. He chose us. That this giving was based entirely on His choice and not at all based on our own satisfaction of some condition He'd demanded of us. He fulfilled the condition He sole demanded of us, that we be in His image and likeness, ruling and subduing all things on the Earth. Sending Jesus to the Earth as the defining member of humanity proves His Will is actively sustaining us and reduces the Law to the place…
