We have been lately considering in several posts of the reality we as Christians often tend to forget. We are saved by faith for the kingdom of his dear Son as rightful place for the saints redeemed of the earth. As many members of the Body each of us is knit as one. So in the eyes of St Paul what beset Church of Macedonia or any other was his concern as an able minister of Christ. For this reason he speaks of collecting funds for the Church in Jerusalem. It was intended for the ministrations of the saints who were poor. He addresses their generosity arguing for a balance, an equality that upheld the law of Christ. “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ (Gal.6:2). which  “an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their…

Life of separation or sanctification is not will-worship as taught by some cults. It is celebration of Christ being in all and through all. It is a life of witnessing.

11 O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged.

12 Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels.

13 Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged.

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?(see note*Ex.33:1-7)

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch…

Representational symbolism makes Adam and Moses double for Jesus Christ. In this post we shall  see what it would mean for the Gospel of Christ. It is the word of Reconciliation-benny

GuidetohisWord

And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

We have already come across the term Rule of Three. It is not a scriptural term as the Trinity is. Principle of Association, Principle of Similitude and Principle of Reconciliation however refers to the office of the Word. It is the Law which existed from the beginning. The logos aspect (John1:1) renders everlasting covenant valid. Principle of Association refers to the Gospel of God (God, the Father). What does the Son signify? It is what StPaul refers in v.19. It is called the word of reconciliation. Principle of reconciliation empowers the ministry of  Jesus Christ as the Apostle brought the Gospel of His Father and it is referred in v.18) By his redemptive work made the Gospel of Christ same as that of God. God the…

What is conscience? From the story of woman taken in adultery we have the Spirit instructing us the worship of God in Spirit and truth-b

GuidetohisWord

We have the passage Ex.34:27-35 for reading and it sheds light on the topic we have been considering with regards to the ministration of dead. ‘The letter kills’ and it was written on stone tables while Moses was with God for forty days and nights. We see a parallelism* in the life of Jesus who was in the wilderness for the same period of time.”…Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil./ And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights(Matt.4:1-2),In the case of Moses it was stone tables that made the Law of sin cause death for whosoever broke the provisions of law.

In contrast to this let us consider the passage from the Gospel of St John (John.8:3-9), The scribes and the Pharisees who had taken a woman in the act of adultery knew what punishment she deserved…

Moses broke the first set of stone tables. It was the work of God and written by God. Second set tables were hewn by Moses(Ex.34:1) What do these signify?

GuidetohisWord

“…But our sufficiency is of God;/ Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:/How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?

While studying the ministration of righteousness we shall first deal with tables of stone which is qualified as ministration of death. On the other hand the ministration refers to that of the spirit.

In this post we shall take up the law as written and engraven in stones. Of this we find the narrative organized by the Spirit in the Book of…

Is suffering necessary to be approved of God?

GuidetohisWord

Great many men whom the world has has made much of either for their exploits or for the intellect have come to dismiss Christianity as a religion negating life. Hitler would despise for the very qualities we admire as its core value. Philosopher Thoreau avoided expressing his view of afterlife by saying he was concerned only of one world at a time. People are entitled to their opinions and merely because Hitler rode the wave of changes in Weimar Germany did not make any more successful in his enterprise than Thoreau whose incandescent ideals would end up as a voice in the wilderness considering how men in that part of their  world have chosen a way of life totally repudiating the nobler purpose for which he would live close to the bone. He did a stint in his time stripped of all superfluities in Walden at one with the nature…

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another./ There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory(vv.40-41)”.

Before we move on to the mystery of resurrection let us examine the glory of God in terms of the Father Son relationship and of the two kingdoms namely of the Son and of God.

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6-NIV). It is clear and definite. No one shall enter into the kingdom of God without first being reconciled to the Son. Psalmist therefore warns us, “Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a…

For he (God) hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him./ And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all(vv.27-28)”.

Before we come to the key text we need to define two kingdoms. One is marked by death. Let us give it a label and who is a better candidate than Adam. God made him a living soul and made him the steward of His creation. It is of whom we read below thus: ‘In Adam all die.’ Second kingdom bears the seal of authority: Christ from whom came ‘the resurrection of the dead’. The latter is also called the last…
