To Know He was God With Us
          

I do not know the day, week, month, or year Mary gave birth to Jesus

And man’s calendar year’s gift extending into God’s timeless Eternity

Isaiah 7:14 – Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Matthew 1:21-23 – And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. [22] Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, [23] Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

We will only see One God in Heaven Manifested as Jesus the Word!

One God manifested his power and love in his creation of all Things

John 1:1-14 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. [4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. [6] There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. [7] The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. [8] He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. [9] That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. [10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. [11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not. [12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

God didn’t Create Earth Void and Without Form (Tohu and Bohu).

It Came to be in that Condition Due to Lucifer’s Angelic Revolution

Genesis 1:1-3 – In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. [2] And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  [3] And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

Isaiah 45:18 – For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.

Tohu and Bohu – (8414 – Strong’s) – Without form, waste, empty, in vain, vain, formless, wilderness

One God Manifested His Great Love for Man by fulfilling 3 Offices,

That are the offices of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit

I John 4:19 to 5:7 – We love him, because he first loved us. [20] If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? [21] And this commandment we have from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. [1] Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. [2] By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. [3] For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. [4] For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. [5] Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? [6] This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. [7] For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: AND THESE THREE ARE ONE.

   

I do not know the day, week, month, or year Mary gave birth to Jesus

BUT I DO KNOW It Is MORE Important to KNOW HE was God With Us,

And man’s calendar year’s gift extending into God’s timeless Eternity

I also know his 2nd Advent to again be with us isn’t a far distant Event

And Souls of Both Saved and Lost Need to Be Prepared For Trumpet 7.

Isaiah 7:14 – Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Matthew 1:21-23 – And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. [22] Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, [23] Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

II Corinthians 2:17 – For we are not as many, which CORRUPT THE WORD OF GOD: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

We are born spiritually dead because we are born of the corrupted seed that inhabits and controls our hearts and minds, and unless God spiritually quickens us, we cannot enter into his spiritual kingdom.  He will only change the old body into a new spiritual body for those who have placed their faith in Christ to save them.

I Corinthians 15:50 – Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

John 3:3 – Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot SEE the kingdom of God.

I Corinthians 15:45 – And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

The words of the last Adam are used by the Spirit who had them recorded to convict us of sin, righteousness, and judgment.

John 6:62,63 – What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? [63] It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I speak unto you, THEY are SPIRIT, and they are life.

II Corinthians 2:17 – For we are not as many, which CORRUPT THE WORD OF GOD: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

The Devil has probably expended more of his time in attempting to CORRUPT GOD’S WORD than in any of his endeavors against God.  WHY???

1. Because the word of God is the incorruptible seed of truth that men and women believe to receive the new birth from above.

I Peter 1:23 – Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

2. Because the word of God is used to produce spiritual growth in us after we are saved.  It is the instrument by which we grow spiritual as new born babes, if we keep on coming to the one of whom it testifies.

I Peter 2:2-4 – As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word that ye may grow thereby: [3] If so be, ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. [4] To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

3. Because those who will let it change their lifestyle in one of his local churches will give glory to God by Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 5:26,27 – That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, [27] That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Ephesians 3:21 – Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Ephesians 1:22,23 – And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, [23] Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

There are two kinds of so called children of God in the world today – those who are and those who are not.  The ones in which the incorruptible seed of God dwells are his children.  The ones who possess the corruptible seed are not his children, no matter how much they try to outwardly demonstrate they are genuine.

Corrupted seed cannot produce fruit that is good in the sight of God, only the works of an incorruptible seed in a man or woman can produce fruit that God classifies as “good.”

Matthew 7:15-23 –Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. [16] Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? [17] Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. [18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. [19] Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. [20] Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.  [21] Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. [22] Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? [23] And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

You can only do good works by the indwelling seed of God that is planted in the believer at the new birth, which is God’s workmanship by grace through faith.

Ephesians 2:8-10 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast. [10] For we are his WORKMANSHIP, CREATED IN Christ Jesus unto GOOD WORKS, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

If Christ, the living seed of God, does not live in you to perform the works of a spiritual life in you, while your soul still dwells in the flesh, your works are not accepted as “good” by God.

I was not saved by the works of my life, nor am I kept safe by the works of my own life – I was saved by faith in the works of God’s Son imparted to me by faith, and I am also kept by faith in the works of his life.

Romans 5:9,10 – Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. [10] For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

Galatians 2:20 –I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Galatians 2:21 – I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

John 11:26 – And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

    

I do not know the day, week, month, or year Jesus came in the Manger

But I do know that In Him dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead Bodily

And I know God’s manger Seed Quickened me eternally 70 Years Ago,

And Sealed my soul until the resurrection at the sounding of trump 7,

At which time my old body shall be changed into a glorious new Body.

And I will Serve the quickening Spirit of Immanuel for all of Eternity!

My sealed soul in the flesh is to seek first his Kingdom in a daily Walk!

Ephesians 4:30-32 – And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. [31] Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: [32] And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Matthew 6:33,34 –  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. [34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

I Corinthians 15:41-52 – There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. [42] So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: [43] It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: [44] It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. [45] And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. [46] Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. [47] The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. [48] As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. [49] And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. [50] Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. [51] Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, [52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Isaiah 9:7 – Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Does a Corruptible or Incorruptible Seed Indwell You?

Part 3 – The Indwelling Seed Both Saves and Keeps Us

I Peter 1:23 – Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

I John 3:9 – Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

John 5:24 – Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, HATH everlasting life, and SHALL NOT come into condemnation; but IS PASSED from death unto life.

If we have the transplanted seed of Christ in us, God does not impute our sins, our transgressions of the law, unto us.  He does punish us for unconfessed sins during this present life, but he does not condemn us to hell for them.  The transplanted seed of God remains, continues to abide in the believer, and is the only righteousness he or she has before God.  And God will not impute sins to any born again person and place them back under his condemnation for sins.  The transplanted seed eternally passes them from spiritual death to everlasting life.  He took away my sins, past, present, and future 61 years ago, then hid me in him from the condemnation for those sins.  I am hidden from the condemnation of God in Christ.  I am eternally set free from the condemnation of God in my eternal savior, Jesus Christ.

If I, as a believer, am still under the law, then every time I break it, I am condemned again to hell by God.  I am no longer under the penalty of spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God, nor can I ever be placed back under it, for he kept the law penalty for me.  Those who believe they will pay the transgression price in Hell for breaking the law after they have been born again, do not understand that he has kept all of it for them, and they do not know what it means to be free from the condemnation of God.  They simply do not realize they will never again need to fear eternal condemnation in a lake of fire for their sins.  They continue to operate under a law Christ kept for them.

I John 3:4,5 – Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. [5] And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

I Peter 2:24 – Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.   

Colossians 3:3,4 – For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. [4] When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Hebrews 9:24-28 – For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: [25] Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; [26] For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. [27] And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: [28] So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Colossians 3:4 – When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

1 John 3:9 – Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

God does not impute condemning sins to me because his seed, Jesus Christ remains continually in me. When I was born again God spiritually put Christ in me and me in Christ, and I abide in him forever by the grace and power of God.

I Corinthians 1:30,31 – But OF HIM are ye IN CHRIST JESUS, who OF GOD is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: [31] That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

John 10:28,29 – And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. [29] My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

By the power of God, his Seed remains in me and I abide in his Seed, and he will never again cast me out of Jesus and once again consider me a condemned sinner.  Those who truly believe they can be cast out of him as sinners after his Seed comes into them, or that he departs from them after he comes to live in them if they sin, have never seen him as he is, nor have they ever known him. They simply do not understand the grace that is in Christ Jesus.  

I John 3:6 – Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

God will never impute any sin to me that would remove me from Christ or Christ from me.  .God imputes only righteousness to me since Christ, the only righteous man who ever lived, lives in me and I in him.  Any act of righteousness that comes out of my life is performed by Christ.  I am only righteous in God’s eyes because he sees his righteous Son living in me.

Romans 4:4-8 – Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. [5] But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. [6] Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, [7] Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. [8] Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.   

I John 3:7 – Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as HE is righteous.

I am righteous only because HE (Christ) is righteous, and I am only capable of performing righteous acts by HE who lives in me.  I have been set free from the great condemnation of God for sin because Christ took all of my sins in his body on the cross.  Those who are still trying to work off their sin debt by what they consider righteous acts on their part, are still under the bondage of sin, and are the Devil’s children because they have not come to Christ as their only hope of forgiveness by grace of all their sins, past, present, and future.  Christ has destroyed the works of the Devil, but they are still sinners before God because they will not come to his Son for full and complete atonement for all their sins.

I John 3:8 – He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

[9] Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Galatians 3:13 – Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

I John 5:4,5 – For whatsoever is born of God overcomeeth the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. [5] Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

John 16:33 – These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

         

I don’t know the day, week, mouth, or year Jesus came in the Manger,

But I do know He Quickened My Soul and will Keep it Saved Eternally,

After Providing It with a New Glorified Body at the First Resurrection.

I was Born with a Corrupted Body and Soul from the living soul Adam

But the Last Adam Quickening Spirit Jesus Eternally Birthed My Soul

This was the Plan for man based on God’s redemption Foreknowledge

That 1st Adam would eat of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil

So God was to be found as the Immanuel babe in a Bethlehem Manger

God saves man by drawing individuals to a Resurrected glorified Seed

In Whom All the fullness of the Godhead Dwells as One God Eternally

1 Peter 1:23 – Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Those born again by an Incorruptible Seed Do Escape Corruption, and are Set Free from Condemnation by Jesus.  They are Set Free to Serve God in Spirit and in Truth.  Those with a Corruptible Seed have not been Set Free and are Still in Bondage!

John 8:36 – If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

I Peter 1:3-5 – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, [4] To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, [5] Who are KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

We are saved and then eternally kept by the power of God through the faith in his Son that saved us.

Ephesians 2:8-10 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast. [10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Having been eternally saved by grace through faith, we are a spiritual workmanship of God by the new birth from above, set free to walk in good works by the power of his Son in us.  Spiritual growth is measured by God in the degree of what we allow him to ADD to the faith whereby he saved us.  We have, by the grace and mercy of God in Christ Jesus, escaped the corruption that is in the work through the lust of our sinful natures and are set free from his condemnation for sin, in order to be able to spiritually add to our saving faith.  We have an incorruptible seed living in us that set us free from our bondage to grow in grace.

Philippians 2:13 – For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

II Peter 1:4 – Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, HAVING ESCAPED the CORRUPTION that is in the world through lust. [5] And beside this, giving all diligence, ADD TO your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; [6] And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; [7] And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. [8] For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We are a “workmanship” of the Spirit of God, and God “works in us” to manifest his presence to the world.  We are not to use our new found freedom, our new liberty in Christ, as a covering, an excuse, to not follow his leadership because we have been eternally set free from condemnation to Hell for our sins.  His grace is so great that he allows us to grieve him, but still does not cast us out of Christ.  We are not to take advantage of his great grace to sell out to the world of lust from which we have escaped by his grace.

I Peter 2:15,16 – For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: [16] As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

Ephesians 4:30-32 – And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. [31] Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: [32] And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

The saved are sealed unto the day of redemption.  At that time the process of redemption of the corruptible part of them will be completed.  At present the saved soul is sealed with, and alongside, an incorruptible seed, surrounded by the corruptible seed in our flesh.  At the sounding of the last trump the corruptible seeded flesh will put on incorruption to complete our redemption.

I Corinthians 15:50-58 – Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. [51] Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, [52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. [53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. [54] So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. [55] O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [56] The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. [57] But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. [58] Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Ephesians 2:22 – In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Ephesians 3:21 – Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

We shall be judged for rewards in heaven for our labor, and the degree of those rewards will be in proportion to the degree of our labor for him in this life.

Revelation 11:18 – And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Revelation 22:11-14 – He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. [12] And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. [13] I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. [14] Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.    

Galatians 6:7 – Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
 
 
     

I don’t know the day, week, mouth, or year Jesus came in the Manger,

But I do know he Quickened My Soul and will Keep it Saved Eternally!

We Must be Saved by the Incorruptible Blood and Flesh of the Man Christ Jesus!  He Alone Must be the Incorruptible Seed Transplanted in Us by God. Our Faith and Hope Must be in the Completeness of His Redemptive Work for All our Sins.  We must not trust in works or fame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ frame.

1 Peter 1:18-22 – Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; [19] But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: [20] Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, [21] Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

I Corinthians 1:30,31 – But OF HIM are YE IN Christ Jesus, who OF GOD is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: [31] That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Colossians 2:9,10 – For in him dwelleth ALL the fulness of the Godhead bodily. [10] And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

We are saved by the transplanting of a living seed in us that quickens us by the new birth.  That living seed is the incorruptible word of God.

I Peter 1:23 – Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

The Spirit of Jesus is eternally transplanted in us from above by the new birth the moment we believe the word he spoke, which is spirit and is life.

John 6:62,63,68 – What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? [63] It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. [68] Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

And this is the eternal life giving word he spoke that we must believe to be saved.

John 5:39,40 – Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. [40] And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

The moment the incorruptible spiritual seed penetrates to the outer surface of man’s inner soul, the Devil does everything in his power to persuade the soul to reject it, and, eventually, if it is not received, it is removed by the powers of evil.

Luke 8:4,5 – And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable: [5] A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.

The incorruptible word, once received, cannot be taken out by the Devil, but if it does not receive more of the water of God’s word, it’s effects wither away, and the person falls away from serving God, failing to follow the word to produce fruit

Luke 8:6 – And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

The incorruptible seed does continue for awhile if it continues to receive the word, and may even produce green fruit that never matures to ripeness, but outside influences on it by family, friends, job, and the overall general influences of the world, choke off its desire and ability to grow to spiritual maturity

Luke 8:7 – And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.

Some word seed receivers let it plow and break the ground of their saved hearts.  Then the water from the word of God is allowed to transform them into solid spiritual plants of God that produce mature fruit.  They are the ones who grow to love the water of God’s word and keep it, retaining it because they value it.

Luke 8:8 – And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold.

If you have this incorruptible seed living in you, you do have spiritual ears to understand what Jesus said next.  Which one of the following four seeds best describes the state you are in today?

John 8:8-14 – And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. [9] And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? [10] And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. [11] Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. [12] Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. [13] They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. [14] And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. [15] But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with PATIENCE.

Hebrews 10:35-39 – Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. [36] For ye have need of PATIENCE, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. [37] For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. [38] Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. [39] But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

II Peter 1:4-12 – Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. [5] And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; [6] And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; [7] And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. [8] For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. [9] But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

This man is well defined by the man in Luke 8:6,13 who did not take the instructions of I Peter 2:2,3.  He never grew to taste the graciousness of his Savior.

Luke 8:6,13 – And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. [13] They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

I Peter 2:2,3 –As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: [3] If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

God’s last Adam Seed Quickened My soul to Eternal Life 70 years Ago!

Part 6

November 13, 2014

Christmas Is the Season Associated With Gifts!

God created 1st Adam to give him a living Soul!

God came as Last Adam with Quickening Spirit!

I Corinthians 15:45,46 – And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. [46] Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

Satan Corrupted Man’s Nature By Adam’s Disobedience

God Quickly Promised the Seed to Redeem all Believers

Genesis 3:15 – And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

I Peter 1:23 – Being born again, NOT of corruptible SEED, BUT OF INCORRUPTIBLE, by THE WORD of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

There is no question that the incorruptible seed of God, his eternally living word, once transplanted, abides in a believer forever, having forever removed the believer from under the condemnation of God, passing that soul from spiritual death to eternal spiritual life by the seed.  He is still a sinner, but is no longer a condemned sinner because he has been born of God by the incorruptible seed, which remains in him, and God does not impute any sin to him that would again place him under his condemnation for sin.

John 5:24 –Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, HATH everlasting life, and SHALL NOT come into condemnation; but IS PASSED from death unto life.

I John 3:9 – Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his SEED remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Romans 4:8 – Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

But the seed that eternally quickens and saves the soul, the instant it is received by the believer, immediately begins a lifelong process of conversion of that soul in order to preserve the life it will live in the flesh for the receipt of rewards at Christ’s judgment seat.

Galatians 2:20,21 – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.   

When the events recorded in Luke 22 occurred, Peter had already been saved, baptized, called out to be a part of the first New Testament church, and had followed the Master for more than three years, but he still needed to have his eternally saved soul converted to worshipping and following God in the right way, and for the proper  reason.  Immediately after salvation, all believers are fair game for Satan.  He cannot “un-save” them, but he can attempt to swallow them whole in worldliness, and sift them in any direction to the whim of the wind as non-connected bits of willowed wheat.

Luke 22:30-34 – And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: [32] But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. [33] And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death. [34] And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

The salvation of the soul eternally takes but an instant, but the conversion of it to a new way of thinking and a new way of life takes the rest of its life lived in the flesh.  If one will endure the anxiety and tribulation associated with the process, it will settle them in THE FAITH once delivered to the saints.

I Peter 5:8-13 – Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: [9] Whom resist stedfast in THE FAITH, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. [10] But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

Jude 3 – Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for THE FAITH which was ONCE delivered unto the saints.

The great work of the incorruptible seed in salvation is its genuine guarantee of eternal life, which is instantly given at the point of belief on Christ’s atoning work as the total, and only, price paid for it

John 10:28-30 – And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. [29] My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. [30] I and my Father are one.

The incorruptible seed also constantly attempts to keep the saved soul in fellowship with God.  The soul remains free from the condemnation of God and goes to heaven by the blood of Christ.  But “conversion” is a process that involves staying in fellowship with God.  The saved soul cannot lose its salvation, but it can, and often does, lose its fellowship with its Savior because of unconfessed sin.  This is a point made by Jesus to his first church in John 13.

John 13:3-10 – Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; [4] He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. [5] After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. [6] Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? [7] Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. [8] Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. [9] Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. [10] Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, BUT NOT ALL.

All were saved and washed by their faith that Jesus was the Messiah except Judas, who had not placed his faith in Christ to save him from the condemnation of God.  Each soul had been saved and sealed by Jesus himself, eternally cleansed from any sins that could separate it from the love of God that is in Christ.

Romans 8:38,39 – For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, [39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

However, Jesus forever established the importance of a saved soul staying in fellowship with the one who saved it by daily confessing its sins, moment by moment.  The humble, the contrite, the broken spirit, will endeavor to stay in fellowship.  The proud and unbroken spirit will refuse to be “converted” to humility, and have periods of un-confessed sins during its saved life.  Jesus taught them by his act that their humility in daily repentance toward God was needed to stay in fellowship.  That is one of the major reasons for staying in church.  Your walk as a faithful member of one of his churches allows his Spirit to cleanse the sins of your daily walk in the dust of a sinful earth

Ephesians 5:26-27 – That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, [27] That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

I Peter 2:5 – Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual SACRIFICES, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Psalm 51:17 – The SACRIFICES of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Humility of a saved soul maintains fellowship with God. The saved soul is rewarded in heaven for the degree of its fellowship with Christ after he saved it.

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

Luke 18:13,14 – And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. [14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Revelation 3:20-22 – Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. [21] To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. [22] He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. 

Revelation 3:20-22 is a message calling saved church member’s hearts to remain  in fellowship daily by a life of repentance and faith.  The saved heart cannot lose its salvation, but it can break its fellowship with the Lord.  Your degree of fellowship with Jesus will determine what you wear and where you live in Heaven.
