In being children of GOD, we must suffer reproach and loss as long as it is to uphold the gain of GOD's perfect Will. I counsel that we always give peace as an answer to violence. It serves as a lesson to us that our zeal must not be allowed to consume us; in all we do, we should put in mind that we carry a covenant of salvation and redemption as a blessing to the earth
May fear lead us always to GOD (and not away) and may Eden be found in our temples erected in our hearts.
For the Christian, “how” addresses the process in its entirety and even though we can affirm that we would not know everything and the mechanisms that bring them, we are left to contend with the very crack in our faith when asked the process of it all. But not the Christian alone. Ask how the big bang happened...oh-yes, we are getting somewhere. You'll be asked how GOD happened, too, and then we can all begin to scratch at the very feebleness of our wits. But one of us would be closer if we took opposing sides – that's for sure.
With the coming of GOD into the authority of our hearts comes the unveiling of the law of grace engraved in our consciences. In grace, we have this law and it is to love. In grace we have this law: to love GOD and then to love others as we love our own selves; to love life; to love the death that brings life in crucifixion; to love joy and the peace of truth; to love and to love for that is the new law.
it is problematic to think that life gave birth to death and death has lived its life haunted by the need to hunt down life. I could go on: roaming my mind for evidence that death is alive and wishes to be the only form of life...scratch that of existence but that’s not the focus or emphasis, here.
Brothers, fear the Word of the LORD When HE says HE can, then he can Sisters Fear the power of HIS Word When HE moves to do the humanly impossible, doubt not; for HE is more than any limit posed-against him
In your script – I hope you look closely – everything you do is for that one person: to please them, to be at ease with them. They are your standard, your goal, your escape from Sheol, your freedom, your Gaol and your indemnity.
The better hope and expectation is to live your life for the life of GOD; to be rewarded with that life that overcomes death like light which overpowers darkness.
If we deserve punishment in judgement, we can receive an entitlement of forgiveness by this commandment. Break the Wheel!
