March 10, 2,020. God’s 12th Month, Adar 14, year 5,789

To: 24,141 family units, gifted with a desire to be ‘at-One’ with God.

Godly love is gifted through His sharing His

holy and righteous characteristics.

God the Father so loved the world that He sacrificed His only “begotten of the spirit Son of man” Son of God - Jesus.” Jesus so loved people He created in their image and likeness that He willingly planned and allowed Himself to be the sacrificial Lamb of God, shed His innocent life blood, so the lawless nature inherited from Adam could be changed to His nature and inherit eternal life. Jesus referred to that change as “being born from above.” Jesus’ apostle Paul was inspired to write, (Gal 1:3-5; Grace and peace to you ‘followers of Jesus’  from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from this present evil age according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever! Amen.”)

God allows Satan to camouflage His truth for His ultimate purpose of growing and spiritually developing a chosen people to His spiritual likeness through believing in Jesus’ faith. (Faith like that of faithful Abraham’s.) Satan has his own motives, “deceiving, causing doubt of God’s motives and trusting him.” That may have began when Satan learned of God’s plan to create a people in His own image and likeness for the purpose of them becoming ‘atOne’ with Himself.

Jesus identified Satan and his purpose in His revelations to John.

(Rev 12:7-9; “Then war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and the dragon and his angels fought back. (8) But the dragon was not strong enough to prevail, so there was no longer any place left in heaven for him and his angels. So that huge dragon — the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world — was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him.”)

As god of this age, Satan has blinded the whole world. Apparently

his space is limited to planet earth and it’s space. Jesus

inspired Paul to declare Satan as a ruler of certain areas.

(Eph 2:1-7; And although you ‘followers of Jesus’ were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you formerly lived according to this world’s present path, according to the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the ruler of the spirit that is now energizing the sons of disobedience, (3) among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ — by grace you are saved! —(6) and He ‘God the Father’ raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, to demonstrate in the coming ages the surpassing wealth of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”)

Truth veiled to those Satan blinds, so they can’t understand.

Jesus inspired His apostle Paul to share, (2Cor 4:3-4; But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing, among whom the god of this age has blinded the minds of those who do not believe so they would not see the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God.”)

Satan knows his end is near and his ultimate demise.

Again Jesus revealed to John and His followers. (Rev 20:1-3; Then I saw an angel descending from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the abyss and a huge chain. He seized the dragon — the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan — and tied him up for a thousand years. The angel then threw him into the abyss and locked and sealed it so that he could not deceive the nations until the one thousand years were finished. (After these things he must be released for a brief period of time.)

Remember God’s ultimate purpose is to purify a select people in this age, to serve with Him in His millennial kingdom. Satan will be allowed to go out and deceive unbelievers once more before final judgment.

(1Corinthians 15:20-23; “But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, ‘Adam’ the resurrection of the dead also came through a man, ‘Jesus’. For just as in Adam all die, ‘once’. so also in Christ all will be made alive, ‘resurrected’. (23) But each in his own order: Christ, the firstfruits; then when Christ comes, those who belong to Him.”)

(1Cor 15:24; Then comes the end, when He ‘Jesus’ hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He has brought to an end all rule and all authority and power.”) (The end?” or “then (is) the end.” Paul explains how the “end” relates to resurrection in vv. 25-28.)

(1Cor 15:25-28; “For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be eliminated is death. For He ‘God the Father’ has put everything in subjection under His ‘Jesus’’ feet. But when it says “everything” has been put in subjection, it is clear that this does not include the One, ‘God the Father’ who put everything in subjection to Him. And when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will be subjected to the One who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.”)

Remember Abraham’s seed, ‘the Descendent‘ is saving Abraham‘s numerous physical and spiritual descendents. Afterward there’ll be no more lawlessness; “sin in God’s View.” All will ultimately be gifted with a “circumcision of heart attitude toward one another.”

It’s by the grace of God, His mercy and love that we’ll be able to function in His loving likeness. Fleshly love, creativity and talents are all gifts from God and God the Father so loved His Son and the world that He gave His Son all authority. God the Father willed that all things be re-created, created and sustained by Jesus.

Jesus is the Lord God that communed with Adam and Eve. They knew Satan‘s nature and motives before Adam and Eve committed lawlessness. God the Father and God the Son, knowingly allowed Satan’s deceptions for His ultimate purpose: “making The Way through faith in God the Son’s shed blood for the remission of sins and atOne with God.

Jesus inspired Paul to explain. (Colossians 1:15-20; He ‘Jesus’ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation, for all things in heaven and on earth were created by Him — all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers — all things were created through Him and for Him. He Himself is before all things and all things are held together ‘sustained’ in Him. He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that He Himself may become first in all things. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in the Son and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself by making peace through the blood of His cross — through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.”)

Through mercy, grace and love, Son of God, Creator ‘Jesus’ would shed His life’s blood so lawlessness in His view could be forgiven to those called to believe IN Him. God’s selecting, making friendship dealings with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and David, looked forward to David and Abraham’s seed, “Descendent Jesus’ shedding His life blood so ’Abraham’s descendents’ could inheriting eternal life through the Son of God’s becoming the sacrificial Lamb of God.

Called followers of Jesus, heirs.

(Galatians 3:23-29; “Now before ‘Jesus’’ faith came ‘was revealed’ we were held in custody under the law, being kept as prisoners until the coming faith would be revealed. (24) Thus the law had become our guardian until Christ, so that we could be declared righteous by ‘Jesus’’ faith. But now that ‘Jesus’’ faith has come, ’revealed’ we are no longer under a guardian. (26) For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through ’His’ faith. For all of you who were baptized ‘immersed’ into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female – for all of you are One in Christ Jesus. (29) And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.)

Review Hebrews 1:, John 1:1-5 and Colossians 1:15-20. By the will of God the Father, Jesus’ called apostles set the examples for our righteous practices. New Jerusalem’s foundations are named for them. Jesus’ blood sacrifice is for the remission of sin, His stripes are for our healings, His death, resurrection, ascension and His being our Mediator before God the Father; was all preplanned, so our lawless inherited from Adam sin nature could be forgiven through Jesus’ gifted faith to our minds.) Making us Believers IN Jesus.

Lets consider some scriptural text relating to grace and truth. (John 1:17-18; “For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, ‘the Father.’ The only One, Himself God, who is in closest fellowship with the Father, has made God known.”)

Apostles Paul and Barnabas experienced unbelievers stirring up those called to believe IN Jesus. They testified to the message of His grace, granting miraculous signs and wonders to be performed through their hands. But the population of the city was divided; some sided with the Jews, and some with the apostles.” See Acts 14:1-7)

(Romans 1:5-7; “Through Him we have received grace and our apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles on behalf of His name. You also are among them, called to belong to Jesus Christ. (7) To all those loved by God in Rome, called to be Saints: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!”)

People called to love God understand that they were first loved by God.
