 Paul understood and taught, we aren’t adequate to choose what’s right, wrong, good, and evil from within our inherited fleshy nature. As a created in His image people, The Lord God Jesus did plan to ultimately unify for His chosen.

      (2Cor 3:4-6; Now we have such confidence in God through Christ. Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as if it were coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, who made us adequate to be servants of a new covenant, not based on the letter but on the Spirit, for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.) As servants of His new covenant “His imputed spirit unifies as God the Father and The sone are, makes us desire to be, at one  with Him, and leads to a faith like Abraham’s. Allow the Hebrews writer’s input.

      (Heb 13:5-16; “Your conduct must be free from the love of money and you must be content with what you have, for He has said, “I will never leave you and I will never abandon you.” So we can say with confidence. “The Lord is my helper, and I will not be afraid. What can man do to me.” Remember your leaders, who spoke God’s message to you; reflect on the outcome of their lives and imitate their faithJesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever! (9) Do not be carried away by all sorts of strange teachings. For it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not ritual meals, which have never benefited those who participated in them. We “Christians” have an altar that those who serve in the tabernacle have no right to eat from. For the bodies of those animals whose blood the high priest brings into the sanctuary as an offering for sin are burned outside the camp. Therefore, to sanctify “set aside” the people by His own blood, Jesus also suffered outside the camp. We must go out to Him then, outside the camp, bearing the abuse He experienced. (14) For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. Through Him “Jesus” then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God. that is, the fruit of our lips, acknowledging His name. (16) And do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for God is pleased with such sacrifices.”) GOD’S is the spirit of law and love. Likened to, “circumcision of the heart.” Allow Paul’s explanation.

      (Rom 2:28-29; “For a person is not a Jew “Christian” who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision something that is outward in the flesh, but someone is a Jew “Christian” who is one inwardly and circumcision is of the heart by the Spirit and not by the written code. This person’s praise is not from people but from God.”)

      In our natural, “fleshly state of being” we are overly mindful of what people may think and can do to us. But know “Jesus does not change!” His Way, as expressed in His sermon on the mount, “will be His Way in the millennium.” Believers IN are looking to that heavenly city, “New Jerusalem.” AFTER Jesus healed the blind man, people couldn’t agree on whether he was the one healed.

      (John 9:8-17; “Then the neighbors and the people who had seen him previously as a beggar began saying, “Is this not the man who used to sit and beg?” Some people said, “This is the man!” while others said, “No, but he looks like him.” The man himself kept insisting, “I am the one!” So they asked him, “How then were you made to see?” He replied, “The man called Jesus made mud, smeared it on my eyes and told me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed and was able to see.” They said to him, “Where is that man?” He replied, “I don’t know.” (13) They brought the man who used to be blind to the Pharisees. (Now the day on which Jesus made the mud and caused him to see was a Sabbath.) So the Pharisees asked him again how he had gained his sight. He replied, “He put mud on my eyes and I washed, and now I am able to see.” (16) Then some of the Pharisees began to say, “This man is not from God, because He does not observe the Sabbath.” But others said, “How can a man who is a sinner perform such miraculous signs?” Thus there was a division among them. So again they asked the man who used to be blind, “What do you say about Him, since He caused you to see?” “He is a prophet,” the man replied.”)

      The gift of believing IN Jesus was a mystery to the Judeans and still a mystery to the world. The natural inherited fleshly mind thinks; “I can believe IN and turn to Jesus when I’m ready.” Jesus and each apostle say differently. Believing IN isn’t as simple as looking at historical facts. Mountains of evidence prove that Jesus came, died and was raised again, “but knowing history doesn’t make one a believer IN.” It can make one  “Believe that” it’s simply as looking at the facts!

      (James said; “the demons believe and tremble.”) “God can turn a, “believer that” into a “believer IN” and give the desire to know Him intimately. Seeking to know Jesus as He manifest Himself to be in the holy scriptures isn’t from the imagination of some person or denomination.

      (Heavenly Father: we thank You for the privileged gift of believing IN You, Your Way and promises. Please bless us with yielding minds, that we may overcome to the end. We pray, we ask in Jesus’ name. AMEN.)

      We believe it’s important to continuously get back to the basic demonic indoctrination that has worldly religions confused. Satan’s world wide deception takes on various forms of his first two lies. Every worldly religion teaches some form of these. (1) “People are born immortal, and (2) people are divine, knowing for themselves what’s “good, evil, right and wrong.” (No need for God‘s View among these.) Satan was calling God a liar when he said to Eve, “Surely you will not die and God knows that when you eat from, “the forbidden” your eyes will open and you will be like divine beings who know good and evil.” (The devil caused Eve and then Adam to loose faith in their Creator, rationalize and doubt God’s motives; when saying, “concerning the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the orchard, You must not eat from it, nor touch it, or else you will die.’”

      We can’t say it often enough: “Satan’s two lies are embraced in some form, by every major worldly religion.” Google what each teach regarding their view of immortality.

      Jesus taught: “He is Life, inspiring His apostles to teach that eternal life is only through Himself.” People deciding for themselves on this subject has the whole world divided. Eternal life is gifted only to people called to be Believers IN Jesus. God the Father reveals Himself and Jesus to whom He chooses. Teaching that people gifted to believe IN, “also desire a loving intimacy with their Creator.” (Believing IN these things is, “gifted faith that saves.”) Fleshly beliefs are speculative until God reveals Himself and opens our understanding. (Fleshly accumulated beliefs are by way of fleshly choice, “producing a weak hope inspired by imaginations.” It’s principles and acceptance of opinions are fleshly and divisionary.) The Hebrews writer, explains, gifted believing IN faith is from God.

      (Heb 11:1-3; “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see. For by it the people of old received God’s commendation. By faith we understand that the worlds were set in order at God’s command, so that the visible has its origin in the invisible.”)

      God’s truth rings sure in the called person’s mind, after He reveals His characteristics and nature to individuals. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and many others, received a believing IN faith in God’s commendation when He chose to reveal Himself. (Study Genesis.)

      Relying on fleshly logic yields to the law of “cause and effect - physical science, things that’s seen.” (Thus the idea of an all knowing Creator God, creating visible from invisible isn’t understood by our fleshly beliefs system.) Even hope faith requires more. So, when people attempt to imagine God from their fleshly minds, “god is imaginary.” It’s why Jewish leaders, not gifted to Believers IN, had problems with Jesus’ words, actions and miracles.

      (John 9:18-23; “Now the Jewish religious leaders refused to believe that he, “the healed man” had really been blind and had gained his sight until at last they summoned the parents of the man who had become able to see. They asked the parents, “Is this your son, whom you say was born blind? Then how does he now see?” So his parents replied, “We know that this is our son and that he was born blind. But we do not know how he is now able to see, nor do we know who caused him to see. Ask him, he is a mature adult. He will speak for himself.” (22) His parents said these things because they were afraid of the Jewish religious leaders. For the Jewish leaders had already agreed that anyone who confessed Jesus to be the Christ would be put out of the synagogue. For this reason his parents said, “He is a mature adult, ask him.”)

      Is the Jesus Christ being introduced by John, the same One being taught by major religions? Do major religions teach that believing IN, is a gift? Do the things major religions accept evolve as do societies? Are abominations to God being taught, talked about and explained?

      Believers IN need to have patience, extend mercy to the deceived, because, “deceived people are in bondage and do not know they are deceived.” Remember God knows our hearts. Some deceived organizations do have agendas that help the poor and downtrodden: their good intentions will be rewarded during Jesus’ millennial reign.
