THE LOVE OF GOD WAS SUCH: THAT GOD WAS IN CHRIST RECONCILING THE WORLD TO HIMSELF.

Jesus Christ the Savior Alone Is God And We Are Not.
Do you want to go to Heaven? Jesus is the way. Have you thought, "why don't I make sure I have it right with God before I make mistakes any more?" And, "If the Bible IS the Word of God, by verbal plenary inspiration meaning every word of every line is thought from God He wants communicated and Whose Spirit bore along the Biblical writers," then, "why don't I do my life His way?" and, "if my life doesn't line with Him now why is that?"
Do you desire or want a relationship and fellowship with your Heavenly Father God? Do you know God loves you more than you could love yourself? God will always love more than you could love yourself! God is love and do you know that God requests the honor of your presence at a Marriage Supper/Banquet to be given in His Son's Honor? God's love for you is no less than stupendous and fabulous and that, with compassion joy IS beautiful. THIS LIFE ABUNDANT IS IN POVERTY IN HUMILITY of Spirit without a lot of 'stuff' in His Son, Jesus Christ. Did you know that Christianity is more than externals alone but living from the inside? Did you know also the Bible tells of our Living God and Savior, Jesus Christ Risen as our only Exalted Head, and Lord in victory? He the Bible says, is the only Prophet, Priest, and King necessary for men to get to God: and we are raised with Christ to newness of life in His Access in Heavenly Places by His Finished Work and Perfect Atonement for sin, His Love for us, a great good right standing with God. Jesus's Life shows us how to overcome. He filled with the Spirit was hunting down the devil 40 days came into the wilderness like a Rambo and left like a Patton full of the Spirit confidently in control with the Father in control and Spirit ridin' shotgun! He was more than example, He "became sin" so we could be free! Atonement full and free. Love so amazing!!! The Gospel is Good News. It's great good good news! Do you think of salvation a getting right with God aright? Do you know having it right is a lifetime journey with God is with forgiveness of sins and the experience of knowing God aright? God loves you and is love! Do you know God promises to all a newness of life, with renewed faith to you through the Gift of His Son by coming in faith through grace to Him? He promises to reveal Who He is to those that seek Him. This happens through the Holy Spirit's attracting and our participating. It's not where you've been but where are you now in God's Eternal Now. The Spirit and the Bride call. Could you have the guts to follow Jesus Christ, God's Only Son even in hard places? What do you want from Him? Tell Him. He wants our attention to get saved, a committment that starts, and is, and becomes Holy living as Gift until we come to see Him as He is someday in confirmed righteousness in Heaven. He has a job for you to do until then. He has blessed the little children and He has and is building His Church. He wants us to be in an intimate personal relationship with Him through the Son, attending Church, (Bible literal taking one,) have fellowship with others, &.. live life as a servant with fullness, faithfulness, and loving for believing Him. This is all a part of the characteristics of the life Our Lord Jesus Christ calls us to live in I Corinthians 13.
A mystery exposed and revealed is an Abundant Life In Christ.Now here's what and why I believe in right relationships and relationship especially with the one and only true Living God Who gives us richly everything to enjoy and evangelical faith (which is a Gift from Him) to believe. We learn: what He's done, what He's doing, and what He's going to do in the future in you and me and can do! Do you recognize His love over you? Joyfully hilariously? With tenderness and joyfulness even hilarity? We glory in tribulation and first even glory in glory of God. That love is spelt l-o-v-e with much tough and tenderness, blessing under His hand, & lovingkindness. He has given you prevenient common grace for your many needs and wants, food, clothing, and shelter under His hand. Do you have a certain object of faith? Isn't it holding you to something or SomeOne? It matters this object of faith because this Jesus is the Incarnation of God become man. God revealed Himself in a tabernacle or tent of human kindness called Christ Jesus the Only Begotten Son of God born in a manger 2000 years ago. That makes Him worthy of our commitment to be worthy of our worship. For there's no formula nor method to Holiness but Christ He is the way and the path! Are you walking in His Footsteps? At Calvary? Are you trusting His Grace every hour? We're sinners and you can fathom that, if you realize you're not perfect & that your lower nature sins & therefore you need help from the broken way we live as humans. God would search you inside if you invited Him to, and love on you & say that you need to know Him, (the way is God & in peace between you and He through Jesus.) God loves you and wants you in His Will, doing His Will, & in a personally way known by Him. For in God's Only Son Jesus, in His Fullness Resurrected Shekinah Presence there is love, joy and peace and pleasures at His right hand forevermore and this is all in knowing Him personally more and more through Jesus Christ once and for all, the only Resurrected Representative of God's Love in a lifetime journey and this starts with forgiveness of your sins. The Holy Spirit welcomes you to God's Family with enthusiasm. God is buying you a Ransom He paid yea moreover is paying in eternal now time for you in your accepting Christ as Savior momentarily - in the Eternal Now to obtain a forever inheritance and starts at the Cross! God cares! Salvation is a word that is an offense to the world being they can't understand it. Scripture says, "if any man love the world the love of the Father is not in him." What is the sin of the world? Unbelief. Unbelief particularly in Jesus as the Son of God the Only Begotten Son Sent by God. Greed and lust are forbears of greater sin. Unbelief in the corruption of nature and unbelief in being a sinner lead to worse all the time. Entropy takes over. Salvation on the other hand begins (God knows when) outside you, you hearing the words of scripture the Plan of Redemption from someone & believing it. Hearing it read (the Word) yourself when you begin belief in God totally in His Finished Work (Christ's) Himself you're born again. God drawing you near, you hearing the still small voice of God to repent and get saved; then responding to the Living Gospel. You are saved by the Living God in repentance from your old way of life and are saved. Living the Christian life isn't in self-righteousness but in a Risen life in Him depending on Him. Living as a Christian isn't silver or gold in having but not neglecting thanksgiving and other such things as are what God wants, contentment. It's not about accumulating stuff. Christ is our righteousness and we boast in Him alone. We're in His Presence in a special way when saved and known by Him and then we're constantly inbreathed by God (greek: theoneustos.) For supernaturally in Him we live and move and have our being. But you have to get saved. Gal. 5:16 says, "If we walk by the Spirit we will not fulfill the desires of the flesh." Jesus Christ is the beginning and the ending: Alpha and Omega, the same yesterday today and forever for our faith. For those who believe & receive His grace and don't do their works on their part for salvation righteousness they would be acceptable as a hypothetical. But as you have received grace for grace, receiving as your own responsibility: gold, silver, and precious stones to lay at Jesus's feet in quality of things you do in God and you will do in quantity also: you will continue in being gratefully saved. Jesus Christ is Savior and Lord if you've come to Him, ie. as a childlike born of God person *you will please Him having been sent the Spirit. With the help by grace infused from God and from the Holy Spirit its possible. All things are possible in God walking in Jesus abiding and in dependence on Him. Receive Him moment by moment like you would a familiar trusted friend. He is able to save you and keep you personally fully and really found out like its written in our Lord's parable in Luke 15 says: 'saved.' There God writes, "He rejoices and invites others to rejoice even over one sinner who repents." You start to experience His love practically! and just by hearing it from the Spirit proclaimed and you taking it in and responding.And if you're saved, living by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and the Rapture occurs while you're living in Christ and honoring a disciple's relationship to God through grace in God and in fellowship (let me emphasize it's by faith through grace) you can be caught up in ("rapizo" in the orig. Bible languages, 'caught away') in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so shall you ever be with the Lord Jesus! Even so come Lord Jesus! Maranatha!Doesn't this sound like something you'd like? or learn to like? love maybe? Read I Thessalonians 4:13-17 and I Corinthians 15:1-7ff for instance, and maybe St. John's Gospel chapter three verse three.In context, "God be merciful to me a sinner," was said in an open appeal brokenhearted and statement made faithfully by a Tax-gatherer of whom it was said in a parable told by Jesus as to one who humbles himself before God this man having beaten upon his breast saying those words. Jesus told this parable about people who think themselves righteous and show contempt for others. The other man in the parable, the Pharisee said, "I thank Thee God I'm not like other men, I fast twice in the week, etc. and I'm not like this publican." Certainly this man has no clue for his saying this. This parable shows a humility before God by the publican instead who came home exalted and justified having humbled himself in a simple single but great way before God. You can be like this person. If Jesus is your Lord and you are His child, remember mercy triumphs when humbling yourself before God under His Mighty Hand.I'm proposing God is love and Jesus shows it all along our way Jesus having died in our place. There is a testifying in every believer a witness unto Jesus that Jesus Paid It All all in a regard to our sin debt. It's all too clear that the deliverance over sin Christ won to gain our salvation for us was complete over sin, death, and hell; His Death did this. Christ became our sin and it's punishment. Then when He rose from the dead He makes us alive whole, complete, & individually directed in His path in salvation in new wine. That's why it's said by us to purpose to glorify Him with admonishment all our lives as (ecclesia, Greek for Church,) the called out ones, as witnesses (maryturos in Grk.,) and as testifying 'believers' uniquely of a Faithful God and His Word. And we are martyrs also in part because our Ransom paid is costly and we treat it costly, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution, some to torture and punishment, and some to death.
The Word of God states "IN BEGINNING" (No article "the" inbetween those two words in the Genesis 1:1 account in Hebrew,) given as plain fact that by His speaking God spoke and the cosmos is on the sixth day created by His hands, even every man was created in the image of God.
God created him and her in the Garden of Eden and He rested on the seventh day. It's in the image of God Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, were created from the dust of the ground by His hand or fingers which shows God's intricate care for man. Because of the Fall of man in the eyes of the Lord, Failing Him God's Spirit died in man & man's spirit died in God's Presence. God would walk with man's in the sunset portion or cool of the day as He did to no more fellowship/walk with man intimately as He did before this. Adam and Eve succombed to the serpent Satan's schemes & misleads and this caused a substantial crises to His man. God had made the command to not eat the fruit in the center of the Garden of one tree, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God said not to eat of it, for you will die, in the day you eat of it. But they ate, and though man was still made in God's image and had free will moral agency, and loved to fellowship in the Garden and walk with God they failed God's moral test. And man made fig leaves to cover his/her nakedness at an attempt to reconcile their disobedience with God but that was a flop and so God made provision of a clothing covering from a sacrificed animal without help from man. That Miracle God did, to produce *Redemption of the likeness and image of God returned though God was blameless and Holy. But even today in getting saved you can be free to live with this covering coverage from God 'in the Eternal now' (PR) in the down payment of Jesus's sacrifice to obtain a sinless body someday in Heaven a saved life now. With obedience and perseverance on your part in life now is to expect to inherit the promises of God. Surely that likeness of God or image of God in salvation is returned in godly hope inclined in high anticipation that doesn't make us ashamed at all because the love of God HAS been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit Romans 5:3-5. God lives in an Eternal Now. So in salvation through the conduit of God's love for you and your love for Him in steadfast hope that is of Another Kind in the Holy Spirit: faith in Jesus Christ for salvation is believed unto Eternal Life and a Life In The Spirit. We're just aliens and passing thru in this life. Remember Pilgrim's Progress? Eternity is a long time. It's on my plate to believe the likeness of God Himself, the aspects of the image of God in man in a body with a created soul and clothed in a spirit that is unique in this existence on earth that it was no accident. Father God returned at Calvary, all we lost by the progenitor Adam we gained back BECAUSE His love restores us future tense if we go on forward with Him. He IS SHOWING US LOVE, revealed in the Son of God Jesus in His Incarnation in His Sacrifice in His Birth/Nativity, Life, Death, Resurrection, Ascension, Exaltation and Glorification for our Redemption of the purchased possession "privileged in benefit." In His LONG-HEARTED PASSION shown Sovereignly appointed time at the Cross He proved the plan He put in force will work. If we enter at some point and believe with a persevering belief in Jesus that acts on grace alone to become saved we want to endure to the end and will hear a voice behind us saying when we turn to the right, "This Is The Way, Walk You, In It." We take one step at a time in His Footsteps. God's attitude toward us is one of Favor that is for us for a timing particular of punctilinear (point in time, greek tense: aorist active indicative) saving faith starting at a point in time (continuing) established and based on the observation that God was in Christ at the Cross reconciling man to Himself. I and others have observed in intervention from Abba Daddy God that life given is for eternal life someday and my life is exposed and "laid bare before Him with Whom we have to do," Hebrews says in ch. 3. He wants our attention! Signs along the road of life show us God is love! HE IS FOR US! He has another side to Himself which is goodness. We can believe He is good like in: 'crazy good' in being possibly, positively, and humanely opportune in us for His Holy Will to be accomplished and for His ways & His Kingdom to prosper and this is well and good. He wants us saved and aware He is Holy and on a Highway of Holiness, His Gift. Man's plan will end in destruction at least for now for in corruption we're birthed. For death is sin's wages. Bible says, "there is a way seemed right to a man and the end of it is death." There is a time for death once and then judgment but you can have the sacrifice that your sins are judged at the Cross and you can have pardon now or if not and you "do it your way" after you're dead have them judged fail to enter Heaven do not pass go nor go on Monopoly. See the grace to be saved? If your sins are judged at Calvary by getting salvation this side of eternity you will have an eternal inheritance in a better place heaven. No 'O.K. Corral' or 'Jesus face,' please, nor any poker face for this is true. The big trick of the Satan is make you think he doesn't exist. Christ takes away sin. In fact, these eternal glimpse Spiritual wooings of God's glory, in fact the Dating God does of us, literally the out-rays of His love for us He's revealing to us are working for us as Christians (in name and for a few, far more of our minds: character too,) an unseen underspoken eternal weight of glory worth far more in features and exceeding value than in every circumstance or purposefully unjust but useful suffering we endure in God is no matter how we're pressed (Greek: thillipsis) our squeezing in path and how we experience life. We rejoice in the glory of God however. We glory in the glory. We joy rejoicing in tribulations, however, too, give thanks to Him in everything, and acknowledge Him in all our ways, trust Him, and take the faith-trust to receive the salvation He offers with all our whole hearts like a childlike child weaned would trust an adult parent. Jesus last words were, "It is finished." It's justified from the Cross works, (greek Tetelestai: to finished completion) that to the undershepherd the work of salvation is done and that the Finished Works He accomplished will show up all along our way in us in His Work of the Holy Spirit's Presence within and on our countenances. We will then be ready to be cradled into heaven by Him someday at death or the Rapture whichever comes first or in other words ushered in by Him while we're obeying in the present and following Him in obedience at death to Heaven or at the Rapture ready. Jesus by spiritual transferance gives you a newness of life abundant, forgiveness, new heart, and new spirit at salvation. Enduring this abundant life to the end, adopted, and regenerated sons and daughters of His you belong to Him showing you're possessed of a hope IN HIM more and more steadfast! God says, "all creation is eagerly (waiting) hoping on hippity-hoppity tip toe anticipating with inexpressable joy the adoption of the sons of God to happen even for the redemption of our bodies. For all the universe in natural creation shall be liberated in a manner similiar to like the children of God's liberty someday." (See Bible verses on the Kingdom of God in the New Millenium, in Psalms, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hoseah, Zechariah, etc. and Romans 8:22-26.) But you need salvation to be a part. You need to become a butterfly. You, born in sin, a sinner, need to become a chrysalis or cocoon first. You get your feet wet and ask God to reveal Himself.
A concerted effort is here to bring to the forefront a great church
Phew 3,500 words later - clearly God doesn't believe in paragraphs.
A concerted effort is here to bring to the forefront great paragraphs...
I'd have to say that maybe you should put this into a hub, instead of wasting it on a forum post.
As for the topic? What god are you referring to? No god exists as far as reality is concerned, but nice try.
