The Allocation Within

“The Bible refers to those who walk with the knowledge of the one body as being spiritual (I Corinthians 2:15), for they have the inward man (Romans 8:6, and II Corinthians 4:16), who resides in their hearts ― this inward man is Christ in you (Colossians 1:27). Having Christ within means that we have the hidden man of the heart {Christ}, in that which is not corruptible (I Peter 3:4), for believers have the incorruptible seed of Christ (I Peter 1:23). But though our outward man perish {or gets older}, yet the inward man {the Christ within} is renewed day by day (II Corinthians 4:16), renewed by placing God’s Word in our minds day by day, as Paul wrote, For I delight in the law of God {in His Word} after the inward man (Romans 7:22). For the inward man builds up the believer from within as he or she accepts the renewed mind that the Word of God illustrates and allows this new man or woman to shine with effervescence as he or she reaches out to build up the one body of Christ in love.” ~LMJ~

The Gifts and Calling of God

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

When Jesus was physically here walking upon the earth, everything he did was perfect and complete. His life totally exemplified the prophecies written about him as he redeemed us from our sins. Today we know that his mission was successful, and we now belong to God through the accomplished work of Jesus Christ our Savior. We are saved by believing in and confessing the Savior from sin (Romans 10:9-10), for Jesus Christ is our Savior from not only the sin of the world, but also the sin nature implanted in man since the fall of man in Genesis.

Acts 3:18-19:
-18:  But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
-19:  Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out {washed away totally leaving no stain whatsoever}, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

Jesus Christ had fulfilled every legal requirement needed to bring salvation to humanity, giving us total access into God’s family. Now that we are saved, we can spiritually take our rightful place at God’s right hand with Christ. To repent or repentance (contrary to some beliefs) can only be done once because when we repent we are saved for eternity. Repentance is when we confess the Savior from sin. We cannot lose our eternal sonship right of being God’s children because He will never take back our eternal life – this is why our salvation is referred to as “being born again” in I Peter 1:23. “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” (Romans 11:29), means that our God will never repent from calling you, nor will He ever regret giving you His gift of eternal life, or all His blessings, or your free and total access to His throne and His heart.

After our salvation, do we still fall prey to temptations and are we swayed by the sin nature? Yes, all Christians will be tempted, and blow it even after salvation, and it is at this point believers feel that they have lost their salvation, that their relationship with God has been severed, and condemnation thus begins reigning supreme in the conscious mind. So what do we do at this point to regain our good standing with God? From the time of our salvation, onward, until Christ returns, we simply confess our mistakes or shortcomings to God in prayer to receive forgiveness.

I John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, he {God} is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The word, confess means to agree in our minds that yes, we indeed have blown it. God allows us to honestly admit that we made a mistake. This is the way God designed our forgiveness. God knows that we will from time to time blow it, so He has given to us an easy way back into fellowship with Him. When we become honest within our hearts and simply say something like this: “Yes, I blew it. I am truly sorry. I will try my best to walk with You today. I am honestly thankful that You have cleansed me from any and all unrighteousness and I thank you for this in the name of Jesus Christ.” Then our heavenly Father instantly and faithfully forgives and cleanses us from our shortcomings and again shows us that we have His righteousness to walk with Him in His divine love. The reason that our God can completely forgive us is because of what the Savior from sin has accomplished for us.

God Is, in Every Sense of the Word, Our Spiritual, Heavenly Father

For through him {through Jesus and his powerful name} we both {you and I} have access by one Spirit unto the Father– Ephesians 2:18. Jesus’ very life was and still is a manifestation of God’s love (John 3:16). Jesus was and still is his Father’s emissary, representing and displaying to people the true character, heart, and love of the Father. Jesus’ ministry was and still is to show God in the new light of being our heavenly Father, and is the reason why believers are referred to as being born again– I Peter 1:23, for God is, in every sense of the word, our spiritual, heavenly Father. Jesus introduces your heavenly Father to your heart’s quest for the true purpose and meaning of your life, for true spirituality, by way of God Himself revealing His fellowship to you, His child. You, together with your heavenly Father through Jesus Christ, complete the threefold cord {that} is not quickly broken– Ecclesiastes 4:12.” ~LMJ~

 

Scripture Value

“We have been called, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you– I Peter 1:4, and our inheritance will be there when we arrive, for it is reserved in heaven. You see, it is the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever– I Peter 1:23, and as we believe the everlasting Word, the Word itself will richly sustain and reward us in eternity. So as we can see, the Word of God is much more valuable than we sometimes even grasped. Psalms 119:164 reads, I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil {a valued treasure}.” ~LMJ~

Access to God

For through him {through Jesus and his powerful name} we both {you and I} have access by one Spirit unto the Father– Ephesians 2:18. Jesus’ very life was and still is a manifestation of God’s love (John 3:16). Jesus was and still is his Father’s emissary, representing and displaying to people the true character, heart, and love of the Father. Jesus’ ministry was and still is to show God in the new light of being our heavenly Father because Jesus is our Golden Thread, and he is the very reason why believers are referred to as being born again I Peter 1:23, for God is, in every sense of the word, our spiritual heavenly Father. So the question arises ― have you really found Jesus in the Word? Jesus introduces your heavenly Father to your heart’s quest for the true purpose and meaning of your life, for true spirituality, by way of the Father Himself revealing His fellowship to you, His child. You, together with your heavenly Father through Jesus Christ, complete the threefold cord {that} is not quickly broken– Ecclesiastes 4:12.” ~LMJ~
