“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
King James Version (KJV)

1(A Psalm of David.) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Thank you for all the encouragement for the life that's being channel of the Lord faithfulness. Let us continue to glorify the Lord our labor in Him is not in vain.

Is it doctrine or or spiritual ignorance that causes preachers and teachers to speak as if Jesus dropped down from heaven as if to bypass the miraculous birth? Is a miracle birth not sufficient to establish the utter supremacy of God? Can a person gifted by the Holy Spirit to preach the Gospel preach that Jesus is God without distinction though Jesus grew in stature and wisdom and God never had a beginning nor will have and end and Jesus, the Only Begotten said, as recorded in Luke 22:37, "For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me HAVE AN END".?
Can great and wise theologians, as they are esteemed to be, utter such things as "...when God died on the cross for us..." and "when Jesus raised himself from the dead"? How can it be that they supposedly have studied the Scripture?
That's part of the problem. They speak what the Bible calls great swelling words saying things like the Bible is the infallible inerrant word of God. They dismiss the need to rightly divide the word. Two things were infallible and inerrant. The Ten Commandments and the Son of God. God filled Jesus who, being perfect except for the flesh, could be touched without being corrupted because He was filled with God. We normal humans must invite God. Jesus was filled with God at birth. As a man, He had to learn God through the Scripture. He grew in wisdom. He quoted the Scripture and challenged others to study. Though He had a mission to perform, He wasn't eager for it. He asked His Father if there might be another way but deferred to Gods will over His own. Just study and know. The OT is Scripture- it came by God speaking to the prophets of old. The NT is God speaking to us through Jesus. It is cannon. It's about the only name given UNDER heaven for salvation of the soul. All others have a horrendous destiny. Look in the Bible then look in the streets. It is Biblical and time is short.

Thank you for your encouraging words. Nice to be travelling with you on that same road to our "hope of glory."

That was a mighty testimony you shared, Modesto. "He who is forgiven much, loves much" (a loose translation of Luke 7:47) can clearly be seen in your blessed union with Christ. May you walk in joy & victory pleasing the Father in all that you do.

Annette asked "Are we His masterpiece". YES in Christ Jesus we are. What blows me away is the fact that Almighty God did not consider His Son too good for us !!!!!

That, we are a PRODUCT of the SPIRITUAL world which GOD owns. We are a property having been created with his own HANDS. First as a mass,then with HIS soul to b living beings. With a purpose to live unto his WILL through His SPIRIT which is not part of the BODY but an intergral unit to confirm with CHRIST through which we connect to/with GOD. We need the spirit as the third element to conquer the BODY n convert it to its IMMORTAL status if we are to defeat the inherited sinful condition. This is the WILL of GOD.
