The Importance of Understanding the Father Heart of God.
If we as believers do not understand the Father heart of God towards
the community of humanity wrapped up in the finished work of Jesus'
death and resurrection, we are unable to present the truth and purpose
of the Gospel that God intended to be good news for them.
great desire of the Father heart of God is to deliver His people from
performance based guilt ridden religion. Once we understand the Father's
heart we can go to Him and experience His love and forgiveness that
Grace has accomplished. Once we know we are set free from guilt and
condemnation, we can, regardless of our faults and failures, commune
with Him, this communing with Him spirit to Spirit is Grace enabled to
provide the power over sin.
Believer's life was never intended to be based on religion's inability
(for it is without ability gain or maintain for us a relationship with
God), or man's ability. It is based solely on God's ability to fill us
with Himself that enables us to live in Him and live the Grace life.
Through relational fellowship with our Father, our character is
transformed and we begin to manifest the fruits of the Spirit as
evidence we are living in Grace.
As God's people we need to
comprehend the reality of God's presence within us and by His Grace help
the community of humanity see the revelation of the mystery of the
gospel revealed to Paul...the Gospel of Grace. That is, that Christ
would be magnified in our living, that He would grow in us and fill us
with His Spirit so that it is "No longer I who live, but Christ who
lives within me".
To fill the earth with the glory of God can
only be accomplished by Grace living as He lives His life in us and
working His works through us by His Spirit. Only by God's Grace can we
have power over sin and live a consecrated and dedicated life so the
community of humanity will experience kingdom living by Grace empowered
As we learn to live in Grace in a practical
meaningful way we will find the abundant life that Jesus promised us
becoming more of a reality flowing within and through us as the Good
News Gospel of His Grace.
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together" (Hebrews 10:25), is a common verse cited by Christians who believe that if you're not attending weekly meetings or plugged in a church denomination that you are somehow out of sync with Scripture and, for all practical purposes, "backsliding". Some refer to the out of church crowd as rebels, or the walking wounded and this verse is often given as the prescription. But is "attending church" really what the author of Hebrews had in mind here?
YES THE BIBLE SAY’S NOT TO FORSAKE THE ASSEMBLING TOGETHER? NOTICE IT DOES NOT SAY DO NOT FORSAKE THE "ASSEMBLY" OR CHURCH BUILDING.
First of all, it is essential that we understand the meaning of the word "church" as it is used in the Bible. These comments, while being historically and biblically sound, are not meant to suggest that Christians should not meet together, share fellowship, pray or preach the Word of God. If that is the conclusion you…
There is no doubt that the Bible has lots of do's and don'ts, commands, demands, rules and rituals. But they were never meant to produce man-made-doctrines, denominated denominations, segregated buildings called the "House of the Lord" to house the different denominations, nor are they meant to determine a person's spirituality or dedication to God based on their performance in keeping the laws and obeying the rules even though the the religious denominational world is based, built and operates on such thinking. Such use of the Bible is misuse and abuse and hinders the work of God in and through His Community of the Redeemed in the Community of Humanity.
Treated in its proper context the rules, demands and commands of the scripture reveal our inability to gain or maintain a relationship with God while pointing us to Jesus Christ in order to know the character of His Father God. After the law leads us to recognize God’s character and our inability to keep the deman…
Fear mongering is an abusive tool used by religion which cripples and limits one's spiritual growth to mature to the full stature of Christ. The fear mongering propaganda that is used as a means to get people saved speaks volumes about the quality of love used to try and scare people to become Christ followers. The scriptures declare that is is the “goodness of God that leads to repentance.”
Another characteristic of fear mongering believers is that they believe that natural disasters are God’s doing and are warnings or punishment for the sin of sinning people. Their sin consciousnesses has blurred their God consciousnesses to where they see God as the big bad wolf waiting to pounce on somebody for sinning.
Natural disasters have happened at different times throughout history. Theses events have been used by money hungry fear-mongers to write books of impending doom, passed of as the gospel by using out-of-context scripture verses to validate the acceptance and sale of their wa…
