Innocent

Romans 16:19-20:NKJV: For your obedience has come known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf, but I want you to be wise in what is good and simple (innocent) concerning evil. And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. * It is virtually impossible for most of mankind to have worthy faithful obedience to God. Satan, the adversary and god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4) has been sending false teachers into the midst of mankind from creation (Genesis 3:15). The enmity, the hatred and hostility of Eve’s descendants continues to this day. The greatest Teacher of this world, the Messiah gives wise knowledge as follows:

 

Matthew 10:16: Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. * Luke 10:18-19: I saw Satan fall like lighting from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. * Verse 20…But rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.  * We become wise as we humble ourselves and search the scriptures daily and do all God desires for you to do.  The people of Berea set a perfect example.

 

Acts 17:10-11: Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more fair-minded (noble character) than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. * In this age, the Christian Jews are all peoples as little children (sons) adopted into the family of God (Ephesians 1:5) and are doers of the holy law. These are listed in Deuteronomy, chapter 5, Leviticus, chapter 23 and the commands of Christ Jesus listed in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. No matter how evil you are God may yet call you into the eternal family before you die. God did not call the Apostle Paul because of all the evil he had done. God called Paul for the purpose to do well and do it good.

 

Acts 9:14:16: And he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on YOUR name. But the Lord said to him: Go, for he is a chosen vessel (ordained by God for a specific task) of MINE to bear MY name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. For I will show him how many things he must suffer for MY name’s sake. * With the power of the Holy Spirit, God can likewise make you perfect. * God always demands obedience even in the face of overwhelming odds. However, when you humble yourself as a little child and faithfully turn to the Most High, God will make the way of escape (1 Corinthians 10:13). God will calm your fear and fit you into a plan of action like Paul, Moses and other examples. As chosen vessels, they became perfect by keeping the commandments of God. * John 14:15: If you love me, keep my commandments. * To become perfect, you must allow the Lord to teach you.

 

Proverbs 9:9-10: Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. * We must be willing to accept the gift of the Holy Spirit as a helper and comforter. Without this awesome power we remain under the penalty of death. Without this awesome power we cannot submit completely to God to receive the eternal reward. * Mark 3:35: For whoever does the will of God is MY brother and MY sister and mother (read Ephesians 6:5-8).* Hebrews 2:13: And again: I will put MY trust in HIM (2 Samuel 22:3). And again: Here am I and the children whom God has given ME (Isaiah 8:18). * When this gift of power from heaven is received we become converted and innocent as a little child.

 

Matthew 18:2-4: Then Jesus called a little child to HIM, set him in the midst of them, and said: Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. * The command for entrance into the soon coming Kingdom on earth (Matthew 6:10): 1. (Conversion) humility to change into a different person that God will accept. 2. (Simply innocent) as all little children desire to learn the truth of God. 3. (Teach) The truth of God’s Holy Word must be taught daily. 4. (Trust with belief and faith) in God and know from whom you receive the truth. The entire Bible is truth. * 2 Timothy 3:14: But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them. * You will then continue to grow as the oak tree grows from seed into a mighty tree. After baptism and the lay on of hands, you will receive responsible and trustworthy energy of the mind. This energy is the power of God and the essential key for acceptance into the soon coming kingdom of God. Then you are innocent and free from the guilt of sin.

 

Luke 20:35:36: But those who are counted worthy to attain that age (coming), and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage: Nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. * Verse 38: For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to HIM. * Be blessed until we meet again.
