We Are Not DIVINELY FAVORED By Our Own Actions; But By Our FAITH IN THE DIVINE Father of Creation
Paul said, “There is nothing more pathetic than the flesh trying to be holy.”
You can not know Christ in fullness and in intimacy, until you give up once and for all, that if you try harder, that you can purify your sin. You can’t do it. Even if you accomplish it, God won’t accept it. The Flesh can not please God, for it is enmity towards God. -David Wilkerson
Flesh will always be flesh. And it was stained upon Adam & Eve falling to evil’s temptation, in the Garden of Eden. Evil sought out to stain God’s most prized creations; and achieved it. Through this CHOICE that they made with the freewill God gave them, it set a chain of events to lead to Man being born as sinners. We can not afford to be ignorant to the righteousness of God; and this can only be known through faith in Him. God has already proven that He will never give up on Man, through the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, His Son. He gave Him Up, as the Lamb Sacrifice, on the behalf of Mankind’s Destructive Nature; to save them. Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, came to the world, to become the mediator between Man’s Sinful Flesh, to the Divine Father of Creation. This was the purpose He had come for. Jesus Christ, God’s Son, came to the earth to become that mediator, so that we may have the chance to sit in the PURE PRESENCE of the Divine Father of Creation. Does not any unconditionally loving parent chase after their children despite them straying away? Do they not stop trying to bring them back? This is the convenant that was made between the Father of Creation; and His Son Jesus Christ; and we become a part of that covenant when we accept Jesus Christ, as the mediator between our sin-stained human nature and flesh. This is the commission that Jesus Christ took on; and by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, accepting that He became the Salvation for Mankind’s sin-stained flesh, we too, also take on that commission with Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, was the earthly Life Example, as to how Man should lead their lives, that is worthy for the Eternal Kingdom, of the Divine Father of Creation. There is only ONE WAY that He showed us; and that is by taking delight in living God’s Will of your life. In fact, that should be your heart’s desire. This is how obedience will come; this is how permanent change comes about. We will see ourselves turn from our flaws and sins, because when God solves something….He solves it COMPLETELY…PERMANENTLY. We can never possess a perfect obedience on our own, flawed human logic and flesh. But only by a soul that is COMPLETELY surrendered to the PERFECT BEING, the DIVINE Father of Creation, by way of the PERFECT MEDIATOR of the FLESH, Jesus Christ, His Son. He justified this through the shedding of His Blood, on the behalf of Mankind, on the Cross, at Calvary.
Because of our flawed flesh, we only set ourselves up to fail, when we set out onto the path to the Eternal Kingdom; if we rely on it. If we rely on ourselves alone, we will only see that we will always fall short. Divinity means to be pure, and there is no other way to be divine. Some have even justified the flaws of the flesh, to justify their self righteousness. When we do this, we begin accepting the ways of our flawed flesh, which includes the sinful things of Violence, Lust, Greed, and Pride; which we see running rampantly in many forms, in the world today. Though God knows of our sinful human nature; He demonstrated through Jesus Christ, His Son, when He roamed the earth, professing the Gospels, it was said upon those that He healed,” By your faith, you are healed…”; “You have been healed, now do not sin any more.”
In this day an age, people have determined their “DIVINITY” through the numerous charities that they donate to; or the causes that they involve themselves in. Many determine their “DIVINITY” through the knowledge that they possess; by proving and disproving theories. Many people go to the extent of convincing themselves that their piousness is proven and justified, by fasting, and mutilating their bodies. We have convinced ourselves that by making donations, and doing good deeds, that we can make up for the wrongs that we do. Or that we can buy favor from God. These are things done by the human flesh, and human logic. Not by faith. Faith requires a SURRENDERING to the Will of God; not by serving God, by how you feel you should serve the Father of Creation. This is what Jesus Christ showed us through His Life, Death, and Resurrection. Through surrendering, we no longer shackle ourselves to the ways of this world, to which God clearly says His Ways are not a part of; to which Jesus Christ, His Son, demonstrated with His Own Earthly life. Through surrendering we completely unshackle ourselves from the world; to which evil has control over. Through complete surrendering to The Divine Father of Creation, Jesus Christ gave us our freedom, from evil.
For in Isaiah 58:4-8:
Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife,
and in striking each other with wicked fists.
You cannot fast as you do today
and expect your voice to be heard on high.
Is this the kind of fast I have chosen,
only a day for people to humble themselves?
Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed
and for lying in sackcloth and ashes?
Is that what you call a fast,
a day acceptable to the Lord?
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousnesswill go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.”
Though evil sought out to stain God’s most prized creations, there is one thing that was overlooked. And that is God’s Divine Connection, through the act of His Son on the Cross, at Calvary. And His Children are choosing, through their freewill, to take on the commission. God, looks from His Throne everyday, remembering the convenant that He made with His Son, Jesus Christ, for shedding His Blood on the Cross. He continues chasing us, by guiding the Holy Spirit to hold our hands in guiding us to the path towards His Eternal Kingdom. He remembers the commission that Jesus took on for Him, when He, as the Son of God, set foot on this earth; and He sees many of us, taking on that same commission. It is by faith, that we conquer evil. This is what Jesus Christ demonstrated.
In Romans 8:3-4:
For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh,God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
