Paul describes the action of God's word. It penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges thoughts ..

Spiritual Apex

A corrupt nature dominates a simple course inundated with imperfect ideas, making one prone to error and bound to fail. Consequentially, there is a need to insert godly principles. By correcting one's moral compass and conforming to God's ways, we impede natural sinful tendencies and promote spiritual wellness.

"A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones" (Proverbs 17:22 NKJV).

When your moral compass pulls away from its original position, visceral discomfort occurs leading to ulcers, stomach cancer, etc. Also, aberrant behavior persists, opening the door to a wide range of physical maladies to occur. A seared moral compass is pulled downward and loses its upward spring due to a broken spirit uncorrected.

Like the physical north that one can travel towards upon the earth, there is a spiritual north in the spiritual realm. At the pinnacle of the physical north is the North Pole. At the apex of the spiritual north is God. By walking towards the spiritual north, man indeed is walking in the Spirit of God. As birds inherently, fly south and as trout swim upstream by natural instinct, man’s spiritual nature seeks to know God and crave to appease Him and to achieve an optimal physical state. Worship gone wild comes when we stray off course.


Our path is laden with bread crumbs that lead to truth. To travel your path in peace is to travel the path that Jesus walked. In grabbing the baton from His Excellency towards a way that leads to life eternal. Out nature bucks against the way of holiness therefore many do not find their purpose because of satisfying carnal desires. This defiant nature spread about society gives preachers job security, but the standard bearers are tried first then selected. Even without a preacher, our existence confirms the presence of God and our conscious testify of His goodness.

"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead" Romans 1

Christ Suspended

As Jesus Christ hung suspended between Heaven and Earth, he listened to His last conversation in a torn body between the criminals condemned next to Him. The criminals took on different attitudes. One said to the other, “. . . we receive the due reward of our deeds, but this Man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your Kingdom.” And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise” (Luke 23:41-43, NKJV).

Contrasts in opinion

This criminal believed that Jesus had the power to grant him mercy. His moral compass was readjusted correctly and not altered by their present situation. He viewed his actions and took responsibility for them. The other criminal was bitter and said: “If you are the Christ save Yourself and us.” No later commentary is noted about this man, but Jesus said to the other, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise" (Luke 23:43).

Revelation

After the resurrection of Lazarus from the dead Jesus said, "And I if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself" (John 12:32).

“But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor” (II Tim. 2:20).

Buoyancy

In a great house there are many vessels, vessels of honor and vessels of dishonor yet those vessels most esteemed are not intermittent ones but track-able and transparent ones, the most reliable and handy ones. This directly manifests itself in a positive relationship with others as many benefits from the service of the faithful.

We worship God vertically but serve Him horizontally” (Pastor James McClure of Cornerstone Church Troy, AL).

Buoyed Around

In service to others, we bring about God’s will upon the earth. A change in buoyancy should never affect the horizontal relationship with others as all vertical angles point towards God your center of gravity remains the same. As you face the heavens from any angle your dimensions in every way are always pointed towards God resting in the heavens seeking a connection with you. The only thing that changes is the new center of buoyancy as you are displaced in life while entering and exiting different seasons in life; whether in lack or abundance, one's center of gravity should remain the same. Just in remaining, you are a resource to the people of God edifying until we see Him as He is. Those who are always faithful are blessed indeed and one with nature as predictable actions take a course, and unfold into predestination filling the place-voids left by others (11/8/09).

"For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12 NKJV).

Spiritual Warfare

When acting by with the Word of God, they are attacking any hindrances against the will of God. A stumbling block is destroyed with the Sword of the Spirit. This spoken intelligence has the character of God and always manifests the fruit of the spirit.

Spiritual Surgery

It is the Word of God that makes known the sources of any issue or covers them until you can digest and overcome the presence against your advancement. It is the character of the Word of God to penetrate problems invasively at the core. The Word seeks to reveal and expose darkened areas and embedded sources of conflict. The next step any sensible person would take is to realize the problem and take the necessary step to remove cancer, ”that the Word of Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you (II Thess. 3:1).

Walk towards God

Believers have faith in God and know that God is at the end of every day’s journey. Spiritual strength is derived from knowing that God has the final authority. Even as solo-sojourner stability is strengthened at the end of every battle fought as one is walking towards the winner’s circle. Regardless of any external trap set or any offense that’s hurled by ANYONE. Walk towards God!

The conclusion of the matter

Men hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them . . . . So that they are without excuse” (Romans 1:18B-20).

We all go back to God

Creation groans as even grass long to fold its blades under the foot of the sons of God. Animals, fowl, fish and all creation abide in sync with nature and exist in the genius in which they were created to thrive in. Of all of God’s creation man is the only one out of step with nature, and since man was given dominion originally every creature waits for him to take back his rightful place. It is commonly said Home is where the heart is; therefore, I believe that the heart of man longs to enter the rest, from whence we came, the bosom of God. Armed with the ability to travel towards God is the power to resist the contrary forces that lead to areas other than God. This power is within us. It was a mystery to the ancients now it’s revealed Christ in you is your hope for Glory.
