Focus Your Attention

Most people imagine the glory of God as being far off. They picture the splendor of heaven--gates of pearl, street of gold, mansions, etc. But Ephesians 1:18 reveals that the riches of the glory of God's inheritance is in the saints. In other words, God's glory is inside you.

Your'e probably thinking-- that can't be right. When you look in the mirrow, you see zits, gray hair, bulges, etc. You survey your emotional realm and notice that you don't feel peace or joy. So you conclude-- this can't be where God's glory is. God's glory is in your born again spirit, not your body and soul.

Your five natural senses cannot perceive your spirit. Neither can you feel it with your soul (your personality--mind, will, emotion and conscience). You must see who you are and what you have in the spirit realm through God's Word and then believe it by faith. Most Christians don't know that God's glory is already inside their spirits.

A Positive Response To Faith

Faith is not something you do to make God respond. Studying the Bible, confessing the Word, acting on the Word are all involved in the faith process, but it's not faith. One of the reasons why people aren't receiviing more from the Lord is they think "faith" is God responding to something that they do. Faith is simply a positive response to what God has already provided by his grace.

According to the Word, God has already blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places (Ephesians 1:2). We now have to simply respond by acting like it's true because it is true in the eyes of God.

If man was to be restored to perfect fellowship with the Father-God, righteousness must be given to him. All sin consciousness, sense of unworthiness, and inferiority must be eliminated from man's spirit and mind. Therefore, the first problem that the Father faced in providing man's redemption was that of providing righteousness for him. Righteousness may be defined as the ability to stand in the presence of God without the sense of sin, guilt, or inferiority.

Unless man is given the ability to stand in God's presence as he did before the fall, perfect fellowship between God and man cannot be attained. Unless the consciousness of sin that was once man's eradicated, man's fellowship with the Father cannot be spontaneous and free.

If God cannot make man righteous and as free from sin consciousness and condemnation as he was before sin entered the world, then Satan's work in Adam has been more effectual than God's work in Christ. If God cannot destroy the sin consciousness and sense of unworthiness and weakness in man (all products of spiritual death), then Christ has not destroyed the works of Satan, and the imprints of spiritual death are still upon man's consciousness, marring his fellowship with the Father. Thanks to Jesus our Lord and Savior, our righteousness and fellowship has been restored with the Father-God.

Eternal Life

Eternal life is the nature of God that is imparted to man at the new birth, making him a new creation. Man's need of Eternal Life was the reason for Redemption. "I came that they may have life and may have it abundantly." (John 10:10). "Even as thou gavest Him authority over all whom thou has give Him that He should give Eternal Life, and this is Life eternal that they should know thee the only true God, and Him whom thou didst send even Jesus Christ." (John 17:2-).

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth him that sent me hath Eternal Life, and cometh not unto judgement, but hath passed out of death into life." For as the Father hat life in Himself even so gave He to the son also to have life in Himself." (John 5:24, 26).

"Whereby He hath granted unto us His precious and exceeding great promises; that through these ye may become partakers of the Divine nature." (2 Peter 1:1).

The Two Kinds Of Knowledge

It is the amazing fact that there are two Kinds of Knowledge in the world today, and we have never contrasted them or compared them.

One is Knowledge that we have obtain through the sense of sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. The other is a Revelation from God.

God created man, a spirit being and gave to him a body for the home of the spirit. Through his physical body man was to contact the outward world which was to be his home. The knowledge of this world was to come to him through the medium of his five senses. The purpose of the nervous system was never to reveal God to man; man was to know God through his spirit.

When man died spiritually, that is, became separated from God, he was left without a channel through which to know God. It then became necessary for God to meet man on the level of the medium through which he gained his knowledge. God has done this and this revelation is known to us as the Bible.

The Bible Is Your Infallible Authority

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteous. (11 Timothy 3:16).

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (II Peter 1:20, 21).

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intentss of the heart. (Hebrew 4:12).

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth, it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the things where I sent it. (Isaiah 55: 10, 11).
