Religions. Theories. The truth? Religion and theories are the core of the insanity that plagues this world! Religion has created a god in the imagine of man—a Christian or a Jewish or a Muslim or a Catholic man.
In the name of this created ‘god’? People kills and be killed all in the name of love and faithfulness to such ‘god’! And ‘Theories’? That’s what they are! Just theories, nothing certain.
I die daily. Yes, I do, but! The kind of death I die? The death of my carnal nature. Oh? What am I talking about? I am talking about eternal reality.
Dear Reader, if you are a Christian, I am sure you have read, studied, and claimed to live by Romans 8 for sure. I know I did, but! I was far from living by it as I claimed to be.
Even more so, I observe people doing the same as I did: read, study and claim or appropriate the written words.
Guess WHAT? I was WRONG! There was no power in all that reading, studying and claiming!
But it took a lifetime for the Creator to extricate such misconceptions from my being!
“Goodness sake, my Father, why did You let me go on like a fool all my life? Why? Why? Why?”
Hum! O my Father, Your wisdom is unfathomable. You refrained from answering me until You saw fit to answer.
Now? You bring a fact to my mind, “The best fruit? That’s the fruit that ripens while it remains in the tree.”
Ah! I get it, my Father! You are the Tree of Life within my being. You had to let the fruit of that Tree ripen within me!
WOW! That makes sense. No more suspense. Now I know why. O mine! O mine! All is well with my soul, all is now fine.
- Now I understand Romans 7 and Romans 8.
- Now I do not have to read, to study, and to claim whatever I read or studied.
- Now I don’t have to struggle to satisfy the demands of my flesh to be ‘good’ and to ‘look’ good in the sight of mankind.
The fruit is ripe in the Tree of life within me as You have declared it to be! It is written,
THEREFORE, there is now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Messiah Yahushua, who live and walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life which is in Messiah Yahushua the law of our new being has freed me from the law of sin and of death.
For our Creator has done what the Law could not do, its power being weakened by the flesh or the entire nature of man without the Set Apart Spirit.
Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, our Creator condemned sin in the flesh subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice, so that the righteous and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Set Apart Spirit.
O but I see it now, my Father. I thought I was living and moving not in the ways of the flesh, but! The truth? I was living according to the flesh. Controlled by the ways of man-made religion. Controlled by those things that gratified my hunger for man’s approval.
For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unrighteous desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the Set Apart Spirit.
Big difference now! That hunger for man’s approval has been replaced by Your approval and delight in my obedience, O my Father! O Father of mine. Your approval and delight in my obedience are my strength. What joy inexplicable and full of Your esteem not mine!
Now the mind of the flesh which is sense and reason without the Set Apart Spirit is death—death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter.
But the mind of the Set Apart Spirit is life and soul peace both now and forever.
That is because the mind of the flesh with its carnal thoughts and purposes is hostile to Our Creator, for it does not submit itself to Our Creator’s Law; INDEED, IT CANNOT.
So then, those who are living the life of the flesh catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature cannot please or satisfy Our Creator, or be acceptable to Him.
But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, IF THE SET APART SPIRIT OF OUR CREATOR REALLY DWELLS WITHIN YOU DIRECTS AND CONTROLS YOU.
But if anyone does not possess the Set Apart Spirit of Messiah, he is none of His he does not belong to Messiah, is not truly a child of Our Creator.
But if Messiah lives in you, then although your natural body is dead by reason of sin and guilt, THE SPIRIT IS ALIVE BECAUSE OF THE RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT HE IMPUTES TO YOU.
That explains my behavior and my situation with my health. I no longer struggle to be or to look ‘good’. I am genuine.
No pretensions or claiming all those ‘positive’ ways going on in the world at large. All those so-called peace and unconditional love pretensions.
Pretensions? Sure, all that goes out the window with the least attempt from anyone to point a better way than peace and unconditional love they proclaim.
And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Yahushua from the dead dwells in you, then He Who raised up Messiah Yahushua from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.
So then, brethren, we are debtors, but not to the flesh we are not obligated to our carnal nature, to live a life ruled by the standards set up by the dictates of the flesh.
For if you live according to the dictates of the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the power of the Set Apart Spirit you are habitually putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the evil deeds prompted by the body, you shall really and genuinely live forever.
Amen! Your accomplishment within my being! Your Set Apart Spirit habitually putting to death, making extinct, deadening the evil deeds prompted by my body. No Kidding, my friends, no need for me to set up my time and my to do list.
The Set Apart Spirit within me is habitually putting to death my evil doings.
Phew! What a relief! And what big smile in Ahmad’s face! No, no apologies for my ill behavior. Only a “thank you”. “I really appreciate it!” “I love you!”
No more crying. No more bickering. OH? The truth? That flesh! It pops with the least provocation, but! So does that power of love and wisdom from on high. It never fails. It always avails! Hahaha! HalleluYah!
What a Mighty Yah You are, O my Father! O Father of mine! Onward I am going to the next verses to my delight and re-assurance of Your Presence in my heart and in my life.
For all who are led by the Spirit of Our Creator are sons of Our Creator.
For the Spirit which you have now received is not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption the Spirit producing sonship in the bliss of which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!
The Spirit Himself thus testifies together with our own spirit, assuring us that we are children of Our Creator.
And if we are His children, then we are His heirs also: heirs of Our Creator and fellow heirs with Messiah sharing His inheritance with Him; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His esteem.
But what of that? For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the esteem that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us!
For even the whole creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for Our Creator’s sons to be made known waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship.
For the creation (nature) was subjected to frailty (to futility, condemned to frustration), not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it—yet with the hope that nature (creation) itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption and gain an entrance into the esteemed freedom of Our Creator’s children.
We know that the whole creation of irrational creatures has been moaning together in the pains of labor until now.
And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the firstfruits of the Set Apart Spirit a foretaste of the blissful things to come groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal our adoption (our manifestation as Our Creator’s sons).
For in this hope we were saved. But hope the object of which is seen is not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees?
But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure.
So too the Set Apart Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the Set Apart Spirit what His intent is, because the Spirit intercedes and pleads before Our Creator in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with Our Creator’s will.
We are assured and know that Our Creator being a partner in their labor all things work together and are fitting into a plan for good to and for those who love Our Creator and are called according to His design and purpose.
For those whom He foreknew of whom He was aware and loved beforehand, He also destined from the beginning foreordaining them to be molded into the image of His Son and share inwardly His likeness, that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also esteemed raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being.
What then shall we say to ALL this? If Our Creator is for us, who can be against us? Who can be our foe, if Our Creator is on our side?
He who did not withhold or spare even His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all other things?
Who shall bring any charge against Our Creator’s elect when it is Our Creator Who justifies that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom Our Creator has chosen? Will Our Creator, Who acquits us?
Who is there to condemn us? Will Messiah Yahushua, Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of Our Creator actually pleading as He intercedes for us?
Who shall ever separate us from Messiah’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?
Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter.
Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us.
For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers,
Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of Our Creator which is in Messiah Yahushua our Master!
What a bliss! What joy inexplicable even amid my aching body and Ahmad’s trying ways for me!
I am sure now I can live with myself and with anyone of my liking or not. Better yet, I know now that I am an instrument of the power of Your love and wisdom from on high. Indeed! What a bliss with a kiss to Your Son! (Psalms 2.)
