What God is offering you is Son-ship...<quoted text>
LOOK i GIVE YOU WHAT THE GOD SAID IN HIS WORD..
THIS IS WHERE FAITH IN GOD FINDS IS GERMINATED AND BROUGHT TO FRUITION...
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
THE BIBLE SAYS...
Jud 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
Jud 1:23 And others save with fear,
pulling them out of the fire;
hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
You must have faith in God...faith in a church will only confuse you, and give you a false sense of security..
You have already experienced the diapointment from having faith in an earthly religious system..
I want to introduce you to a personal relationship with your
creator...(with out the middle man,(mans religiosity)
that only muddies the waters by their own interpretations RHETORIC THEOLOGY and conjecture.
Jesus words were personal in his dealings with individuals while he was bodily upon the earth...
AND AT NO TIME WAS IT THE SAME WITH ANY INDIVIDUAL THAT HE CALLED.
HE SAID ..
Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
He has not changed...He still calls men personally and separates
them unto HIMSELF...
The voice of pleading mercy, Mat_11:28-30. Labor is for active manhood; heavy-laden for suffering, patient womanhood. The invitation is to PERSONALLY commit and submit; to come and to bow under the yoke of the Fatherís will. Submission and obedience are the secrets of the blessed life.
a personal relationship ...AS A FATHER WITH HIS SON
This begins by being SPIRITUALLY regenerated...from a sinner to a saint..
BY BEING BORN OF THE SPIRIT...NEW BIRTH..
GENEVA COMMENTARY DATED 1611
(2) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot (d) see the (e) kingdom of God.
(2) The beginning of Christianity consists in this,
that we know ourselves not only to be corrupt in part,
but to be wholly dead in sin:
so that our nature has need to be created anew,
with regard to its qualities,
which can be done by no other power,
but by the divine and heavenly, by which we were first created.
(d) That is, "go in", or "enter", as he expounds himself below in (Joh_3:5).
Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
(e) The Church: for Christ shows here how we come to be citizens
to have anything to do in the city of God.
