The judgment of God, according to their works.

The judgment of God, according to their works.

Peter makes this peculiar statement in his first epistle, “for this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, for them to be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit”. Showing us that those in the previous generations before Christ appearing, that did not know the gospel in its fullness, they had another opportunity to hear it in its entirety, so they could live in the same way as God.

They had another chance to respond more appropriately to the invitation. That Christ after his bodily death descended down into Hades and gave to the spirits of humans a way out, that “they may live according to God in the Spirit” as we just quoted from Peter the Apostle.

We see some of a byproduct of this in Matthew 27

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many”.

Even as Paul described of this event in Ephesians 4, that “Now that he (Christ) ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, in order for Him to fill all things.”

Meaning, Jesus Christ saturated everything everwhere in His original construct of Spirit and Truth.

This is why scripture says in Hebrews 4 that “13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and exposed unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do”. And of the Old Testament passage that “known to God from eternity are all His works. That God pre-played every outcome meticulously and His purposes are played out to perfection. All things make perfect sense on the other side of the Vail of human reasoning, and what God planned forhappens to a T.

That the Elect obtain God’s Glory, that wickedness is trapped and treated, and God extends His forgiveness and forbearance, and that all of His edicts are carried out to perfection. God is sovereign.

We know according to scripture that God is just. Meaning that God is fair. That He judges and presides over everything. That any question anyone would have about fairness of the why’s, where’s and the when’s, that God is just and the justifier.

Even Peter says that, “God is not willing that any should perish but that all should repent (the individuals responsibility) and receive eternal life”. God does go out of his way to do so as seen in the previous text and as evidenced by Christ at the cross where He paid the price for our short comings so we wouldn’t have to. A fair God wouldn’t do that. You would have to receive life based upon your own merit and you don’t have any .

God gives everyone ample opportunity to repent and come clean by being washed by His sacrificial lamb, a concept that Israel portrayed on holy days as a foretelling of the Christ that would come. A just God wouldn’t do that. You don’t deserve a full pardon. Even during your best behavior on your best day, God owes you nothing on your own merit.

To think that you could is the sin of “self righteousness. That was the sin of the Jews. They thought they were the right for others to try to emulate when in reality they were a testimony to the forebearance of God “because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed” Romans 3.25.

Gods forbearance with the Israelites lasted a few thousand years. His testimony with the Jews was a show of His patience as shown here. “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, those who kill the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!” This is another showing of Gods patience.

God need not answer anybody. When the account of things are finalized, everyone will see that God is more than fair, He witholds His judgment all along the way. He doesn’t need to explain it to anyone, but He does to His Elect.

“Eternal life to those who by a patient continuence of doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, but indignation, anguish and wrath on the soul of everyone who does evil. To the Jews first and also to the gentiles” meaning other nationalities. Even as we saw judgment with the Jews first, so shall it be to other people as well “for their is no partiality with God for He is no respecter of persons.

The Jews were given to show us that the patience of God has an end. And that God had consistent mercy on them for a few thousand years and in Gods final judgment of the Jews how many were worthy? How many of them did what was right? According to the Psalmist then quoted later by Paul in Romans 3.

10 As it is written:

“There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands;
There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside;
They have together become unprofitable;
There is none who does good, no, not one.”

We can understand more clearly the judgment of God from Paul here in his letter to the Romans, that they were [b]treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who “will render to each one according to his deeds” eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, to them  indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first (as an example) and also of the [c]Greek; 10 but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 11 For there is no partiality with God.” So you can see a full pardon is offered to all of humanity indiscreetly.

Your limited understanding should not triumph over God’s word in your decision making process. You have to trust what is written more than what is presented to your view through common events.

Paul puts it like this in Romans 2 saying “God in His forbearance had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, for Him to be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” Here again showing us that God has mercy, meaning He gives you favor you don’t deserve.

And again from Romans 3.

21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all [f]and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified [g]freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a [h]propitiation (a payment rendered) by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, (and levied against our soul) 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, for Him to be just and the justifier of the one who has faith/trust in Jesus.

Boasting Excluded

27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude that a person is [i]justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. 29 Or is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also, 30 since there is one God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.”

So the question is then, if God had that patience and forgiveness to the previous generations who were in the dark about God, will He not have the same Mercy to other generations and cultures in the same circumstances? The answer is yes.

We see here another time given, like those souls Christ preached to in the underworld. There is another collection of souls who get the same opportunity at the end of the New Covenant era, to receive eternal life as spoken of in Revelation 20, 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before [c]God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books”.

This was all done after God’s first fruits were already established in His presence, showing us that God harvests His elect to Glory first, then deals with each one “according to their works”. God is just, and judge of all His own works. God is supreme.

We see that God has a day of reconning for those who did not repent and seek to persue to attain to all the riches of Christ in their lifetime, but however they will recieve a reward based upon what they did attain. But be careful what you think you deserve because we see in Peter that “the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the earth and all man’s works shall melt with fervent heat, for the eternal to be clean.

Meaning that people’s kingdoms and everything they did in a carnal way has no place in God’s Heavenly Kingdom . He is concerned primarily about peoples invisible part of their mind, soul and spirit. After all that is the only part of you that interacts with God of being like His things. The emotions is the energy that motivates good deeds done by faith without mandates of laws. Not just the laws of Moses, but any law.

Christ used the parable of the loaves in fishes, when explaining what He collects. That when everyone was done eating bread, even all the fragments that were dropped were picked up. For us there are some people who are the fragments who are gathered up last. This is the final harvest of miscellaneous scraps. None were lost.

I personally would rather be found and counted with the Elect of God who attain to all the riches of Christ while we are in this life, then to find myself on the other side regretting lost opportunities.

For those who ask “are there many or few that are saved?” Paul says this in Romans saying “as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one, Christ, shall many be made righteous. And “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one, Christ, shall many be made righteous.” Meaning more than are not.

God gives eternal life to as many as He wants. So even the Elect cannot be smug in a self righteousness.

Christ making “many righteous”, is the fulfillment of the promise given to Abraham to “Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be”. So is the seed of Christ of those who are born into Him. They are many like the stars of heaven. Blessed be God for His Glorious works of salvation. Not one crumb was missing from the several loaves, but all were collected, so don’t think “the world is going to Hell in a handbasket”. You can’t see what is taking place from down here.

If this is not enough, we need to go to the Throne Room in Revelation where people from every culture are present ‘for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation”. And may we add, throughout time, even to the end of creation.

But, Woe to those who collect people like trophies to validate their cause and denomination. To vindicate and justify themselves over others.

Even as Paul preached in Corinthians “one says I am of Appolos, are you not just acting like silly men? However there are many competing demons doing the same things, collecting people like trophies. However they will have nothing to brag about from the fire.

Paul expounded on this more in Romans

Since no other foundation can be laid which Christ laid, however we can build upon it, this shows for us that the things that we build physically would fall through because His Kingdom is Spirit and Truth. So the things that are built upon it are Spirit and Truth, being motivators of the heart and love. So the kind deeds that many have done inhumanity, are not overlooked. even as Christ and said, for in that you’ve done it to the least of one of these you’ve done it for me. Meaning that those who have sacrificed their lives for the souls and welfare of others, may get a big piece of that pie in the sky.

There are many that confess Jesus that are stuck at the crossed waiting for the second coming that are farther away from the kingdom then those that reject elements of modern Chritianity and still do what’s right in the spirit.

1st Corinthians 15 spells out that Jesus Christ is first, then the Elect being first fruits are next, then those who are Christs at his coming” as the order of those He collects.

The lesson from Peter discussing Christ going to the underbelly of the Earth to preach faith so the spirits of the dead can live according to the spirits of men, shows for us that everyone has equal opportunity. This should also strike at the root of modern-day Phariseeism, that if somebody doesn’t sit in the pews of your church doesn’t mean they’re going to hell. “God doesn’t dwell in buildings made with hands” but He does live in hearts filled with love.

Just a note of caution: do not think you can hear the deep things of God and go back to your old self. You are responsible for what you do with the revelations and understandings God has given you. I would not want to be found a lazy or ore-occupied servant where Christ said “take the talents from him who buried them and cast him into outer darkness with the rest of the unbelievers. Wow to them.

The Kingdom of God is at hand

Appropriating Our Benefits Package

God’s Benefit Package for the Elect

David said in Psalms 116.12 “What shall I render to the Lord
For all His benefits toward me?
13 I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
14 I will pay my vows (our only payment due) to the Lord
Now in the presence of all His people”. 

It is Us the Elect that are called out of the world to secure our place “in Christ”. Being found “in Him”, having his righteousness, and his right doing. Meaning we have a better way of getting things done.

it is important for us to know how to appropriate our benefits package. “That we may know the things that God has freely given us” for our health, prosperity and length of a godly life, using His machinations for our needs and short comings and not the counterfeits of crafty men.

We need to know how to effectively manage and use our tools from God, lest we be classified as “lazy stewards” of “the mysteries” of God”.

You can be sure you will be tested, so make sure you correctly know how to apply what God has given you. You are gonna need them. Even as Paul said to the Ephesians “ Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day”. How can you do that if you don’t know what you have?

God did not leave you alone or forsaken to fend for yourself. He said “I will never leave you forsaken”. So we know this is true. We just gave you a clue on what you should use to overcome your tests. Word, Gods word. Gods written word.

Like Satan said to Jesus in the wilderness “has God really said?” How well can you answer? How well do you know scripture.

God puts Us The Elect in precarious situations to see if We use the world’s safety nets in our shortcomings, or if we apply God’s provisions made known to us in His word, being the collection of the Fathers words whom we call “The Son” and “The Only Begotten”. It is He that is the only element that came forth from the Father. He makes Himself known to us by words, which is why He is the Word of God before and after “He became flesh and dwelled among us’.

What the words describe are our choices and our options from our service provider God, for our life, our health and and our safety plans for expressing godliness.

And having found the coverages, providers and perveyors of the things of this age lacking, we accept the terms and conditions of The New Covenant signed with the blood of Christ, as sufficient. In this  is way God is our sufficiency.

Because of this, let us be found under God’s coverages and His service providers, that He makes known to us in scripture and clearly defined by the training of Gods Holy Spirit. That we may be found “in him” fully sanctified and protected, under His covering, and not in another health or safety provider. For “our God is a jealous God”. And He doesn’t respond kindly to us if we give ourselves to others for their services because He’s got us covered.

That is what “sanctified” means. That is why He says “be ye Holy as I am Holy”. To be of another sort, unearthly, putting on the things of God. To “put on Christ”. You can be sure if Jesus had, or did something, we can have it and do it too. And we should be able to do it as He did it because “as He is, so are we in this world”. Not as He was when “He became flesh and dwelled among us” but as He is now in His pre-incarnate embodiment of “Spirit and Truth”. John 4.24 Let us be found here.

God forbid that I be found outside of His provisions and coverages by stepping underneith anothers. Like with Adam and Eve in the garden. Having partaken of another, when He was tested. God said “Adam where are you?” Adam thought, oops! And he felt ashamed for turning from God. Having believed anothers words for god-likeness, Satan, who said “You shall become like God”.

It wasn’t so much that Adam put on, or subscribed to another provider and coverer, he did that too, but when he did that, he put off God’s protection to do so. You cannot partake of God’s table and demons. They just don’t mix.

Adam for the first felt naked. He was un-covered. Adam was exposed. He stepped out from underneath God. The very thing he thought he got, is what he did not get. When you turn from God you don’t get the next best thing, but the exact opposite.

That is why in our day there are more insurance coverers, health care providers and services, but there is more sickness death and desease, anguish, depression and suicide than anytime in the history of mankind. So much so in fact that these and other types of providers are counterfeits that keep us from God. They are gobbling up most of the efforts of humanity measured by money, and turned into never ending payments. This is slavery. But don’t worry. When you really need to use them, they have ways to make you sicker, to kill you quicker.

“In the day that you eat you shall surely die” were the words of God to Adam. And so too for all those that follow his lead, started their death of trusting in others for their safety, health and quality of life,  one contract at at a time, one payment at a time, and by accepting terms and conditions one click at a time, untill you are fully enveloped in the worlds safety nets and not God’s. You are in the world and if the world. Of this we are called to come out of and truely trust in God.

You have insulted God one rejection after another. Because you are covered by the counterfeits and competitor service providers, but who serves whom? You can’t understand the things God has for you. You are dead to the things of God. In the day you eat you shall die? Yes, a slow death oand denial being blind to Him who is “At Hand” ever ready to save you from all your woes, not just your last breath.

Everytime you accept another’s services to make yourself complete, the very thing you think you got, you didn’t get. If you did, you wouldn’t be beholden to them. You wouldn’t make continuel payments, or empowerments to them. That’s what payments do. God’s things are free, but you empower the competitor and insult the true God who made you “in His image and likeness”. But you would have none of it. Even as Satan said, surely you shall not die, but you shall become godlike without God.

Satan knows that if you do a disconnect from God, he owns you. If he can lure you away from godliness according to the gospel, he can offer you counterfeits. So many so much in fact a collection of all his lies believed by others equals “the dillusion with all lying signs to be wondered, if possible to decieve the Elect. Why? Because it can be described as being godlike, being all knowing and all controlling (hmm, that sounds like “the internet of things). But it cannot fool us who know that they have the replicant.

The book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, describes God as “the one who already was, who already is, and always will be” the unchangeable Almighty God. Verses “him who is not, but must become, then goes into perdition” as the counterfeit.

So if your provider is growing and getting bigger? You got the lie. This is “The wheat and tares mature together” God told us about. Are you Wheat? Or tares.

For the Elect, we are growing in the knowledge of God because we are in change. Not God.

Here is a rule of thumb; If you are paying for it, it is not of God. If you are praying for it, it likely is, if it is according to faith in the Spirit. You cannot serve God and money. Even as James says, “you have not because you ask not. And when you do ask, it is to use it on your carnal nature”, showing that you are taking God’s word out of context. You cannot serve God and Mammon, and you cannot buy the things from God the owner of all things. For that it an insult to offer to God any sort of payment. Even your own good works. For when you do that, you insult the Father and the Son because if your best efforts on your best day could please God, Jesus would NOT have signed The New Covenant with His blood. He spilled His blood so that you wouldn’t have to.

Even as Christ said at the cross “Father, if their be any other way, please let this task pass by me. Without a redirect from the Father, Jesus went forward with the plan, for you to be covered by His plans and His coverings. Like abiding under the wings of The Almighty.

Isn’t that what Jesus did? He said “oh Jerusalem! The one who stones and kills the prophets and all who are sent to you (including Himself). Oh how I would’ve covered you as a mother hen gathers her chicks, but you would have none of Me. Now this destruction is upon you”.  Showing us that they thought they were “in the good hands of God, but we’re really under the care of another. But they too were exposed to the very dangers they thought they were protected from.

If you have found a provision given to you in scripture, and you have the faith then use it, because God rewards those that diligently seek him. Since we in our humanity know how to give good gifts to our children, how much greater gifts do we get from our heavenly father?

If you see a provision in scripture and don’t use it and you look to others, you insult the gift giver. “For if the word spoken to Angels proof steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received its just reward, what makes us think we will escape such judgment if we neglect such a great salvation”. Salvation, meaning saving, are God’s interventions for us on a daily basis. To have a dependency in Him and the things He has thought and said about us, to help us, to be there for us, to make us complete, with no gaps in coverages? We are complete in Him, no exposures, no other dependancies. We depend on Him. We truely trust God.

What shall I render to the Lord
For all His benefits toward me?
13 I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord.

Part 2. The test.

There is certain retribution for those who have been opened up to know the mysteries of God and then walk away from them and count them as common things.

Jesus commended the widow for trusting in God for giving her last two pennies away? It was because she knew that she had a more enduring treasure. The principals for using that treasure is that you have no back up plan for “just in case” as if Gods providers have lapse of coverages.

The widow gave what she had because she knew how to activate her treasure. That it was opporational and active then, even as it is for us today, if we have that same kind of faith.

The way we aquire is not money.

Jesus Christ claimed to do the works of the Father, because He is The Word of God, and when we do as Jesus did with His words, the Father listens and answers us too. Because we come in the name of His Son, we are cut from the same cloth. “Even the angels see the face of the Father in these little ones” and obey them too.

This is what it means to be in Christ. God’s Words that come out of our mouths sounds like His Son because when we express these requests by faith, that pleases the Father. That is the conduit to receive a provision from God. And because God and Jesus Christ speak a word and it is so, so do we if we do it according to the principles of faith. God accepts no other form of payment.

Even as James says “a perfect person bridles their mouth, who also said to those who did not ask in faith, let not that person recieve anything from the Lord. But some of us ask and receive to move mountains “be thou moved into the sea and it shall be done for you”. So you know there are no obstacles too big to stop you.

Let’s look at our example of Jesus when “He became flesh and dwelled among us” before He finished His task and returned to the Father. Even as Jesus said to the Father “Father I have completed the task you have given Me. I have manifest My Word to those whom you have given Me out if the world and they have kept it. They know truely that I came forth from you, that I return to you, and that they see Me again no more” at least in a carnal way, yet they see Me as as I (truely) am. An exact image of You because He who has seen Me has seen the Father. As long as they are not fixed upon the flesh, they can know Me, and they can know You”. And because God is Spirit and God is truth and seeketh such? Such are we. We take Him at His Word. We see Him as He is, and become like Him. And because We accept Him as He is, He accepts us and become the amalgamation of that one.

So this is how and where we go to receive, assimilate and appropriate the things of God, so that we can enjoy the reality of who He is, and the blessedness of apprehending the gift of God according to Godliness. Even as John said of Jesus and us, that “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body, and you are complete in Him who is Head over all powers and principalities”. This is true in this age and every age. You are only hindered because you don’t have the faith. Faith comes by hearing the word of God because we become that Word we read to become like God’s Son who “in the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God”, and for us we receive Him in that form, we receive Him as He is and we are like Him. His Word in us equals our likeness of Him. Even as Christ condemned some saying “if you abide in Me and My words abide in you, you shall ask what you want, and it shall be done. Here are your tools to impliment what God has given us. This is the currency we need to aquire these things. Not paper instruments with pictures of dead men, but to reiterate word, God’s Word, God’s Son in us. He sees Jesus. In this way we are in Christ, the owner and executor of The Estate, we are joint heirs of the Glory. And we, beholding as in a mirror the Glory of the Lord, were transformed into His self same image from the Glory, to the Glory as by His Spirit. That verse is expired in us. And because God is eternal, and God is complete, we don’t have to wait for anything for the allocation of this but perfect faith. Isn’t this what Paul acknowledged his purpose was? To bring us to this point? 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; can you recieve this?

For you nesayers and deniers, you haven’t really got it until it comes out of your own mouth. But here is the promise to those who can receive this.

when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.

 

Part 2 So join us in examining and reciting these truths until you too are renewed in the spirit of your minds with scripture to become like us because there is no other way to the Father and there is no other way to impliment the things He has given us. Lest any of us fall short of the Glory of God, because that is what has been given to us.

The things that stands between you and the full aquisition of the benefits and coverages provided to us through the Christ of the cross, is by trusting in others and by not being renewed in the spirit of your minds and accepting all the gifts of salvation. For the time is coming when Rev 22.7

It that day many will say “Lord Lord, didn’t we do many good deeds in your name?” And maybe so, but you did not receive the provisions I have for you. Not only did you pushed the products of the gods of this age, but you did it in My Name, says the Lord. As if God has any association with such. You cannot partake of the Lords table and the table of demon’s. Even as the Lord says “come out from among them and be ye clean. Then I will receive you. (2 Corinthians 7.1)

You see if you are waiting for a second coming savior to deliver you from the gods of this age, you are decieved. That makes the Christ of the cross a liar. The Son of God came into the world to save is a hoax if He indeed did not accomplish that. And anyone who is waiting for the next Jesus to save them believes a lie and insults God and His Son who spilled His blood and implimented the last and final contract for all our needs called “The New Covenant”. There

There is only one saving act and that is the cross of scripture is untrue because “God sent His Son into the world not to condemn those in the world but to save them”. And the Spirit testifies of the words of Jesus that “I go to the Father and you see Me again no more, at least as a human. Because if Jesus has to come again to perform another act to secure your place at the Throne with The Father, His previous Testimony is a lie. And that cannot be because lies are the attributes of Satan, because he has lied from the beginning and he is the father of lies.

So we know the things that are offered to us in this age for our safety, health, happiness and longitivity, are illusions at best because “all the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ”and not in the world.

So we must understand our distinction. We are those distinguish among Christ as being His guests and co-inhabitants of the Father, enjoying even now the things they enjoy being complete in themselves with no need for others, and so are we. That is why John says in his first epistle.

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life— the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us— that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have oneness with us; and truly our oneness is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that [a]your joy may be full”. And we are absolutely estatic.

So let us observe how Jesus implimented His benefits package so that we can learn to impliment it ourselves as well.

Jesus Christ was tested in the wilderness to see if He would give in to the god of this age, Satan, whom we call the tempter. You see Jesus Christ had to go through a series of testings to help others through theirs. As it says in Hebrews, “For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.” In this way Christ qualified Himself as the “Author and finisher of our faith” concluding that He is with us in our journey as the closer.

Hebrews also said of the Christ that He “was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. (Meaning He mastered sin) 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”. 

So we can understand that we are not alone with our journey, and because we can go to the storehouse of all things, being the Throne room of God, we can “find grace and help” and whatever tools we need to help us in our transformation.

I know some understand God’s throne by the thunder and lighting, but we have a more simple access point. Even as Jesus said while He was in the flesh “ask the Father anything in My name and He will do it, showing us that we have everything we need for any test that comes our way. Even as Peter affirms that “that according to these exceedingly prescious promises, we have been given everything that pertains to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who had called us”.

And from Ephesians “we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the Heavenlies”.

So we see with Jesus in his wilderness test not succumbing to the god of this age but drawing upon the riches and promisesory provisions of God’s Holy Writ. That if God said a thing and Jesus repeated it as His own, we can be certain that if we reiterate His sayings too, that we would have the same results. Today these things are fulfilled in your hearing, because today is the day of salvation without surogets.

Doesn’t scripture say that we are joint heirs of the things In Christ? That “it’s the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom” with it’s safety features, health prosperity and fullness of joy?

Psalms 92
