The failure was simply a lapse in judgment of who we are. In Christ, all things become new. In him, we have advanced beyond the ephemeral point of reference. The pace of that newness depends on how quickly we are willing to surrender to the Father. 🙏🏾
“Do not deceive yourselves; no one makes a fool of God. You will reap exactly what you plant. If you plant in the field of your natural desires, from it you will gather the harvest of death; if you plant in the field of the Spirit, from the Spirit you will gather the harvest of eternal life. So let us not become tired of doing good; for if we do not give up, the time will come when we will reap the harvest. So then, as often as we have the chance, we should do good to everyone, and especially to those who belong to our family in the faith”Gal.6:7-10, GNT. 🙏🏾
What’s done was never needed. Give God all the glory and see your knowings manifest.
In him, there are no lapses or delays. In all moments, we live in Christ, from glory to glory.🙏🏾
I love all of you, not because I know you, though Christ does. His love will see you through all things, overturning all circumstances, and with your new updated membership, nothing is impossible. 🙏🏾
“Their sins and iniquities he will remember no more (Hebrews 10:17), which will alone show the riches of divine grace, and the sufficiency of Christ’s satisfaction, that it needs not be repeated” Matthew Henry Commentary.🙏🏾
… never lost in God. Find value in the scene by searching the within. Then, watch as the ‘enlightened’ thinking reveals what’s true about you. Remember, those challenging circumstances were never ours. Christ awaits our arrival to life everlasting.🙏🏾
“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. …
For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular” (I Corinthians 12:4–6, 12–27).
“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:26–29).
(2.) That this privilege of being the children of God, and of being by baptism devoted to Christ, is now enjoyed in common by all real Christians. The law indeed made a difference between Jew and Greek, giving the Jews on many accounts the pre-eminence: that also made a difference between bond and free, master and servant, and between male and female, the males being circumcised. But it is not so now; they all stand on the same level, and are all one in Christ Jesus; as the one is not accepted on the account of any national or personal advantages he may enjoy above the other, so neither is the other rejected for the want of them; but all who sincerely believe on Christ, of what nation, or sex, or condition, soever they be, are accepted of him, and become the children of God through faith in him.
From Matthew Henry commentary
We are like a ray of sunlight, meaning, never giving reference or concern for the clouds that are seemingly in front of us. In reality, it is as though the clouds were never there. Nothing of this world can hinder your divine unfoldment. Remember, the world tells us everything about nothing and want you to believe it’s you. Nothing is further from the Truth, lol.🙏🏾🎉
Some think the mark is a microchip or some other ephemeral means of making individuals obedient to the devil. My take! It is the actions of the evil-doer (beast) wanting to make us vulnerable to the world through sin and its mark or imprint on our thinking. Fortunately, the answer is within reach. Our closet time is the shield. It quiets the five corporal senses and denies entry to the beast.
Spiritual consciousness is where we are, refusing to let our guards down while battling the ephemeral suggestions. Remember, sin can only be found in the world. Something simple like being personally offended, or acting on depraved wills, can leave a mark on the body. Fortunately, Love, the Gabriel in all of us, is more powerful than the beast. We live in Christ.🙏🏾🎉
