      When our lawless sin nature is revealed by God we’re first ashamed,-repentant- then God gifts a desire to mimic Jesus’ life. We’re called to be in His church family after genuine repentance. It’s God doing the putting in His church. His fathering makes each a literal child and heir with Abraham. Through gifted belief in Jesus is a spiritual re-creation, ‘immortality.’ Through Jesus, God’s Elect are gifted with His energizing power -the Holy Spirit of truth-, desire and effort is gifted, making us at one with God the Father and God the Son. Allow Jesus’ revelation to Paul.

    (Philippians 2:12-18; So then, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence but even more in my absence, continue working out your salvation with awe and reverence, for the One bringing forth in you both the desire and the effort — for the sake of His good pleasure — is God. Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God without blemish though you live in a crooked and perverse society, in which you shine as lights in the world by holding on to the word of lifeJesus-, so that on the day of Christ, I will have a reason to boast that I did not run in vain nor labor in vain. But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I am glad and rejoice together with all of you. In the same way you also should be glad and rejoice together with me.)

 Consider; each gifted to believe IN Jesus person is under construction while in the flesh, while we’re overcoming the nature inherited from Adam and putting on Jesus’ nature. We’re each on God’s spiritual Pottery wheel, being re-created to the spiritual image of Jesus! Goal ‘is to think and live as Jesus commands.’

     The Son of God, -Jesus- gifted Adam with the capability to name all breathing creatures according to their gifted instinctive characteristics. Jesus gave the breath of life to each, while designing, ‘God’s law of kind after kind.’ It’s one of many proofs of God’s creating laws.

     (John 1:1-5; In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God. The Word was with God in the beginning. All things were created by Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created. In Him was LIFE and the LIFE was the LIGHT of mankind. The light shined on in the darkness, but the darkness has NOT MASTERED it -understood it.)

     God had purpose in making mankind in His image and likeness, while at the same time, allowing Satan to be, ‘god of this age.’ He purposely gave mankind things to overcome. He purposely allowed Satan to deceive Eve, and coach Adam into disobeying Him. He purposely allowed, in their nature, ‘a spirit essence of disobedience’ –a lawless sin nature- that needed to be overcome.

    God the Father had purpose in making that-‘Jesus’ faith live in repentant people a mystery to the world.’  Re-creating in the spiritual image of Jesus, ‘so we could enter the kingdom of heaven.’ Followers of Jesus must overcome through Jesus’ gifted faith as did He. Allow Jesus’ revelation through the Hebrews writer we believe to be Paul.

    (Heb 5:7-10; During His earthly life Christ offered both requests and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the One who was able to save Him from death and He was heard because of His devotion. Although He was a Son, He learned obedience through the things he suffered-things He experienced.  And by being perfected in this way, He became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey Him, and He was designated by God as high priest in the order of Melchizedek.) The Lord God Jesus as Melchizedek blessed Abraham. See Genesis 14:18-20, Psalms 110:4, Heb 6:20 and Heb 7:1-17.  

    Through Jesus’ gifted faith to us individually, we can overcome our inherited from Adam nature and attributes which are cowardly, unbelieving, detestable, murderous, immoral, sexual desires, practicing magic, idolatry, lying and such.

    Turning from our inherited nature through Jesus’ faith defines Godly repentance. Ultimately unrepentant persons will have their place in the lake of fire, which is the second death.  See Rev 21:8.

    It was preplanned that, God the Son be God the Father’s first fleshly begotten-Jesus- be miraculously born of woman, live in the flesh as a spiritually fathered Son, and give His life so, “whosoever believes IN Him would be gifted with eternal life.” Immortality.

    After Jesus’ apostle Thomas believed, Jesus said, “Do not continue in your unbelief, but believe.” (John 20:28-31; Thomas replied to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen Me? Blessed are the people who have not seen and yet have believed.” Now Jesus performed many other miraculous signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are recorded so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.)

    Being led to believe IN Jesus includes recognizing, ‘God gifts our desire and effort to overcome our inherited from Adam nature.’ Jesus’ life is our example, and the same spirit that guided Jesus’ life is imputed to -gifted to- each called to believe in Jesus person.

     It’s the mystery worldly denominational religions can’t grasp, because they aren’t His sheep. The mystery is, ‘God’s gifted spirit in man and man in God.’ God the Father leads His chosen to recognize the NEED to be saved through Jesus shed blood.

    (Heb 9:22-23; Indeed according to the law almost everything was purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. So it was necessary for the sketches of the things in heaven to be purified with these sacrifices, but the heavenly things themselves required better sacrifices than these.

   (Heb 9:24-28; For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made with hands — the representation of the true sanctuary — but into heaven itself, and He appears now in God’s presence for us. And He did not enter to offer Himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the sanctuary year after year with blood that is not his own, for then He would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But now He has appeared once for all at the consummation of the ages to put away sin by His sacrifice. And just as people are appointed to die once, and then to face judgment, so also, after Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many, to those who eagerly await Him He will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to bring salvation.) Through Jesus’ gifted faith each repentant person has God’s energizing Holy Spirit guiding. Jesus explained how it comes to be.

     (John 12:44-50; But Jesus shouted out, “The one who believes in ME does not believe in Me, BUT in the One who sent Me, and the one who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. I have come as a LIGHT into the world, so that everyone who BELIEVES IN ME should not remain in DARKNESS. If anyone hears MY words and DOES NOT obey them, I do not judge him. For I have NOT come to judge the world, but to SAVE the world. The one who rejects Me and does not ACCEPT My words has a judge; the WORD I have spoken WILL JUDGE HIM at the last day. For I have not spoken from My own authority, but the Father Himself who sent Me has commanded Me what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that HIS commandment is ETERNAL LIFE. Thus the things I say, I say just as the Father has told Me.) Jesus was keeping the seventh of seven annual Sabbaths when He stood and shouted.

     (John 3:5-15; Jesus answered, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must all be born from above.’ The wind blows wherever it will, and you hear the sound it makes, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”  Nicodemus replied, “How can these things be?” Jesus answered, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you don’t understand these things? I tell you the solemn truth, We speak about what We know and testify about what We have seen, but you people do not accept Our testimony. If I have told you people about earthly things and you don’t believe, how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven except the One who descended from heaven — the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life.”)

    Obedience to God’s will is to -believe IN Jesus. God’s master plan for His Kingdom is that His chosen people be, born again. ‘That is, to be fathered by God the Father with Jesus’ spiritual likeness.’ Perhaps God’s plan was shared with His angelic beings before Adam’s creation. Perhaps it caused jealously in Lucifer. At any rate, we can affirm that Lucifer only believed that, he didn’t believe IN his Creator. Like many unbelieving people professing Jesus, but have no internal desire to mimic His life.

     Lucifer, whose name God changed to Satan, made himself as a little god when he chose disobedience, and he makes himself mankind’s enemy by manifesting himself as an angel of light. He must ultimately be destroyed.

     The Bible tells us, Satan knows his fate, and he’ll become more ruthless as the end of this age approaches. He desires to deceive all mankind in similar fashion as he did Eve. With lies and half truths that appeal to fleshly human logic. See Genesis 3:4-6 again.

    Consider the things appealing to our inherited nature, and what we’re prone to put first. Is it not taste, riches, attraction to the eye, sexual lustful desires and worldly wisdom? Things that make people feel superior. Jesus’ words, seek FIRST the Kingdom of God doesn’t appeal to unbelieving people.

     Adam and Eve knew they were created and taught by their Creator, but they like Satan didn’t have the gifted spiritual capacity to believe IN, as followers of Jesus in this new covenant age are gifted to believe IN. The gifted capacity to believe IN, is a major part of God’s New Covenant master plan. The Apostle Paul explained to believers IN.

      (1Cor 10:10-13; And do not complain, as some of them did, and were killed by the destroying angel. These things happened to them as examples and were written for our instruction, on whom the ends of the ages have come. So let the one who thinks he is standing be careful that he does not fall. No trial has overtaken you that is not faced by others. And God is faithful, He will not let you be tried beyond what you are able to bear, but with the trial will also provide a way out so that you may be able to endure it.) What a miraculous promise.
