The Hope

    Home Back

Romans 8:19-21: NKJV: For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of HIM who subject it in hope. Because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God

 

The future sons and daughters of God eagerly await the tree of life in the soon coming kingdom of God. Until our Lord returns the suffering of mankind is painful and remains until the sleep of death. With sinful vanity, Adam and Eve selected, even for descendants, the tree of death instead of the tree of eternal life. However, because of pity, Adam, Eve and descendants were later given the sacrifice of the Lamb of God. Futility then became hope because resurrected Christ became the first man, born of woman, to be the Eternal Son of God. This demonstrated that we can also become sons of God and part of the God family. Unfortunately, we live in an evil world that does not truly know God.

 

John 17:3: And this is eternal life that they may know YOU (God), the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom YOU have sent. * Why did God make you? You were made to acquire knowledge to know God. As God family you will live eternally in perfection to do the will of God. What is the ultimate goal in life? The ultimate goal in life is that you must know God and do the will of God to become family.  What is eternal life? Without knowledge to know God, eternal life with the Eternal is vain until resurrection. Your knowledge of the ways of the coming kingdom is desired more than any other sacrifice.

 

Hosea 6:6: For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more that burnt offering. * Without obedience to the law of God we are obedient to the twisted and deceitful law of Satan (Revelation 12:9, 2 Corinthians 4:4). * Jeremiah 7:23-24: But this is what I commanded them, saying: Obey MY voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be MY people. And walk in all MY ways that I have commanded you that it may be well with you. Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward. * The law of Sinai is still our tutor to learn knowledge to know God with the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

 Galatians 3:24-27: Therefore the law was our tutor (guardian) to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of your as were baptized (immersed) into Christ have put on Christ (clothed in Christ, for you are now His investment). * When we have put on Christ, God imparts power of the Holy Spirit of God into your heart and mind. God gave the Holy Spirit to the Son of Man when immersed to set an example of death to sin for mankind. * Matthew 3:16: When HE  had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to HIM, and HE saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon HIM.

 

Baptism by itself cannot save you. Israel passed under the Red Sea in symbolic baptism. A grave of water for the evil army of Pharaoh symbolized the death of a past sinful life. All Israel over the age of twenty perished except Caleb and Joshua. * Numbers 32:11-12: Surely none of the men, who came up from Egypt, from twenty years old and above, shall see the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because they have not wholly followed ME, except Caleb… and Joshua… For they have wholly followed the Lord.  * To this day, few people wholly follow the Lord by keeping the basic commandments of Sinai, heaven and the soon coming kingdom. Basics are: Exodus, chapter 20, Leviticus, chapter 23 and Deuteronomy, chapter 14.Because of the controlling power of Satan, we must humbly repent, be baptized (fully immersed) as was Christ. We then need the power of the Holy Spirit as a helper from God to overcome. I have witnessed ministry with the lay on of hands claiming to give the Holy Spirit of God. They do not possess this power. Instead the recipient/recipients receive the spirit of Satan, the devil and fall backwards * John 18:6: Now when He (Jesus) said to them: I am HE; they drew back and fell to the ground. * Those men of flesh represent Satan, the devil.

 

Romans 8:13-14: For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. * Galatians 6:7-8: Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to this flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. * Flesh is the body that has bad habits and do not wholly keep the commandments of God. God is mocked when we are not sincere, contempt, blaspheme or insulting to our Lord. All who mock God revert to the evil world of the old man. The only man who did not deserve insults was Christ. * Luke 18:32-33: For He will be delivered to the Gentiles and will be mocked and insulted and spit upon. They will scourge HIM and kill HIM. And the third day HE will rise again.

 

A farmer sows seeds in the springtime with the hope of a fruitful harvest in the autumn. The seeds sprout and grow strong with nourishment, weeding and loving kindness. To please God, we must sow the truth of the gospel to be harvested at resurrection. When we put on Christ the Holy Spirit of God will nourish us with wisdom, truth and knowledge to know God. When we put on Christ the Spirit will lead us into the kingdom of peace and joy with loving kindness. The Spirit will help empower our faith, trust and belief to help overcome the evil world.

 

Be blessed until we meet again.
