Living in the Will of God…….
Thus Saith the Lord; Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God (Yahweh). For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ (Yahshua): Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
Alive in Christ dead in sin…….
And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Be ye therefore followers of God (Yahweh), as dear children; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God (Yahweh) for a sweetsmelling savour. Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
The Spirit of God Lives in you…….
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God (Yah), and that the Spirit of God (Yahweh and Yahshua His Son) dwelleth in you? There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord (Yahshua), one faith, one baptism, One God (Yah) and Father (Yahweh) of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; But now in Christ Jesus (Yahshua) ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God (Yahweh) in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father (Yahweh). May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God (Yah).
Put on the New Man…….
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus (Yahshua) throughout all ages, world without end. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God (Yah) is created in righteousness and true holiness. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Amen, Amen, Amen.
