OBEDIENT CHILDREN

'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...' - Ephesians 2 vs 15

Hello dearly Beloved in CHRIST. Pay proper attention to the words which you now read. B e Blessed. AMEN.

In our opening Bible passage, we are informed that the Law of Moses has been abolished. Okay let's move further;

'For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished.' - 2 Corinthians 3 vs 11 - 13 {KING JAMES VERSION}

Two statements in these passages in verse 11 and verse 13;

  • For if that which is done away
  • that which is abolished

So these Bible passages further confirms our opening Bible verse, showing that the Law of Moses has been done away, it has been abolished. So it is clearly seen that the Law has been abolished. Who abolished the Law? CHRIST. That's what our opening Bible passage states. Let's see it again, and let's see how CHRIST abolished it;

'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...' - Ephesians 2 vs 15 {KJV}

The verse 13 of this passage shows us where this verse 15 is coming from. Let's see it;

'But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.' - {KJV}

Then He went on to verse 14;

'For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;' - {KJV}

Then verse 15 our opening Bible verse;

'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...' - Ephesians 2 vs 15 {KJV}

It's clear now. CHRIST abolished the law of commandments, this is speaking of the Laws which Moses gave. How did HE abolish the Law of commandments of Moses? The verse 14 explains it;

'For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us...' - {KJV}

AND HATH BROKEN DOWN THE MIDDLE WALL OF PARTITION BETWEEN US

When was the middle wall of partition between us and GOD broken? Evidently at CHRIST's death at the Cross. Let's see it;

'Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent...' - Matthew 27 vs 50 - 51 {KING JAMES VERSION}

The verse 50 speaks of CHRIST's death, and the next verse (51) tells us what happened after HIS death, that was the middle wall of partition between us and GOD broken down, which the Apostle Paul talked about in the verse where we are coming from. It says, the veil of the temple was torn into two from the top to the bottom. This happening was an indication that the Law of commandments which caused man to stumble at GOD's righteousness has been taken away. Hallelujah! Okay let's go forward.

Now, the question is this;

Now that the Law has been abolished, can the Believer in CHRIST live any how and do just anything because the Law is abolished and done away with?

Let's look at that now;

'Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine...' - 1 Timothy 1 vs 9 - 10 {KJV}

Notice, He says that the Law is not made for a righteous man. Why? Because a righteous man has no need to be instructed in righteousness. The Law of commandments which was given by Moses was for the purpose of instructing the people unto righteousness. But the Believer in CHRIST is already righteous by Faith. The Believer in CHRIST has attained that (Righteousness) which the children of Israel attempted to attain through obedience to the Law, but they couldn't.

'For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.' - 2 Corinthians 5 vs 21 {KJV}

WE HAVE BEEN MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.

Hallelujah!

So now that the Law of commandments have been abolished through CHRIST's death and resurrection, how then should the Believer in CHRIST live His life in this earth? Well it's simple. Let's see what the Bible says;

'As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance...' - 1 Peter 1 vs 14 {KJV}

O glory to GOD, we are called Obedient Children, and yes that's right, because a righteous man is an obedient man, and the Bible clearly tells us that we are GOD's righteousness in CHRIST, hence, we are obedient children. Glory to GOD. So we are obedient children, we don't need the Law of commandments to tell us what is good or bad. We have the SPIRIT OF GOD in us, the will and pleasure of the FATHER is in our hearts, hence, we don't need a Law telling us what is good or bad, because we know what is the FATHER'S will because of HIS SPIRIT Living in us.

'This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.' - Hebrews 10 vs 16 - 17 {KJV}

You see that, the Laws (will) of GOD is on our heart. How? The SPIRIT OF GOD who knows what is the mind of GOD is in our heart. Hence, we know what is the mind of GOD, we know what is the will of GOD, we know what is the mind of GOD in every situation, we know what brings GOD glory, we know what GOD desires of us, GOD's Spirit is in our heart. - Selah

'For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.' - 1 Corinthians 2 vs 11 {KJV}

Now, one may not properly interpret this Bible verse with the way the King James Version puts it. This verse is simply saying, just as you are the only one who knows your thoughts and plans, likewise, GOD only knows HIS thoughts and plans. Now, a man who has received the SPIRIT OF GOD into His heart can now know GOD's thoughts and plans because the HOLY SPIRIT is the presence of GOD. The HOLY SPIRIT is the omnipresent extension of GOD in the earth, the HOLY SPIRIT brings the presence of GOD almighty to a man and in a man, hence, bringing a man into fellowship with the FATHER and with HIS Son JESUS. So we can safely say, that a man cannot have fellowship with GOD, except GOD's Spirit is in him. Let's see how the Message Bible Translation puts that verse;

'Who ever knows what you're thinking and planning except you yourself? The same with God - except that he not only knows what he's thinking, but he lets us in on it.'

You see that? Okay. How does GOD let us in on what HE is thinking? HE does that by giving us HIS Spirit (which HE has given us). HIS Spirit is HIS Presence, manifesting in us all that is of GOD. - Selah

So we can clearly see that the abolishment of the Law of Moses is not an excuse to begin to do evil. The man in CHRIST has the SPIRIT OF GOD in His Heart, hence, He knows what is the mind of GOD, and He so walks - He doesn't need the Law of Moses to know what is wrong or right, He has the fullness of the compendium of goodness in His heart, He knows all that is right, and He yields Himself to walk in them because He is an obedient child.

'As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance...' - 1 Peter 1 vs 14 {KJV}

The Grace of GOD be with your Spirit. AMEN.

ACCEPTING YOUR HUMAN NATURE - THE PATHWAY FOR ABSOLUTE GRACE AND PEACE

'For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.' - Romans 7 vs 18

Hello dearly Beloved in the LORD JESUS, Greetings. I trust GOD that this Publication will minister to you abundant Grace from the FATHER, and even bring healing to your heart where needed. AMEN.

Okay. Our opening Bible passage was the Apostle Paul talking to the Brethren about a certain time in His life, and that verse shows us how the Apostle Paul came to the acknowledgement that there was nothing good in Him. The question is, What must have made Him come to such a wholistic acknowledgement and conclusion? It's in the previous verses, let's take a look;

'For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.' - Verse 15 {KJV}

The Amplified Bible Translation makes this verse more plain;

'For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [which my moral instinct condemns].'

Waow. He made that confession again in the verse 19;

'For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.' - {KJV}

Let's see how the Amplified Bible Translation puts it;

'For I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds that I do not desire to do are what I am [ever] doing.'

How clearer could this be... You see, the Apostle Paul at that time of His life, having taking close notice of His failures to do the good things He actually desires and holds on to, He came to acknowledge that indeed, there's nothing good in Him, He said that there was nothing good in His flesh. Let's see that again;

'For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.' - Romans 7 vs 18

He said that there was nothing good in His flesh. It's important you know what He meant by the word 'flesh'. He wasn't talking of His skin, but rather, He spoke of the sin nature. Let's look at some verses in that same chapter that explains it;

'Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.' - Verse 20

Let's see how the Amplified Bible Translation puts it;

'Now if I do what I do not desire to do, it is no longer I doing it [it is not myself that acts], but the sin [principle] which dwells within me [fixed and operating in my soul].'

Here it is put as THE SIN PRINCIPLE, that speaks of THE SIN NATURE which by default is a part of man naturally. The Apostle Paul came to realize that the sin nature was at work in Him naturally, He learnt not to struggle with it, rather He accepted that nature, He acknowledged it, He acknowledged it's presence in Him. - Selah. Likewise should you do! Don't struggle with yourself over a wrong done, don't beat up yourself that you did a wrong that you didn't intend to do. Just like we saw the Apostle Paul, He came to realize that there was no need lamenting over wrongs done, because He found out that there was a sin nature resident in Him, which was the reason for His ability to do wrongs even though not intended or planned. You see... Imagine a dog beating up itself for barking, that dog would be in a big trouble of it's life. Why? because it's in the nature of a dog to bark. You see, a goat can never bark, because it is not in the nature of a goat to bark. If it was never in man to sin, we would never sin. But if you sinned, if you did wrong (even though you never intended to do it), then that fully tells that the problem is beyond you doing wrongs, but it's about the sin nature in you which makes you do wrongs, and that exactly confirms what the Apostle Paul said to us. Let's see it again;

'Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.' - Romans 7 vs 20 {KJV}

'Now if I do what I do not desire to do, it is no longer I doing it [it is not myself that acts], but the sin [principle] which dwells within me [fixed and operating in my soul].' - Romans 7 vs 20 {AMPLIFIED BIBLE TRANSLATION}

You see... if you sinned, if you did wrong (even though you never intended to do it), then that fully tells that the problem is beyond you doing wrongs, but it's about the sin nature in you which makes you do wrongs, and you should not be beating up yourself for a problem that's beyond you. Now you can clearly see that the issue of you doing things that you don't really like to do is beyond you, it's about the sin nature that is in you. This is the reason why you must acknowledge and accept the existence and presence of the sin nature in you, and have peace with yourself. - Think on these words.

Dearly Beloved, this acknowledgement I now speak of is beyond acknowledging your sins or a sin, but I speak of the wholistic acknowledgment and acceptance of the entire frailty and weakness of your human nature. Once you have been able to accept this, once you have come to accept that your human nature is sinful by default, it becomes easy for Grace to rule in your heart and mind, because the Grace of GOD only flows in weak places; hence Peace becomes a permanent resident in you. - Selah

'But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.' - Matthew 9 vs 12 {KJV}

From these words of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, it's evident that Grace is for the weak as physicians are for the sick! If you are not weak, you don't need Grace; if you are perfect, you don't need Grace, just the same way if you are not sick you don't need a Physician. - Think about it

Therefore, you must acknowledge the weakness and frailties of your human nature to experience the Graciousness of GOD's Grace in your heart and mind. Below are the words the LORD JESUS CHRIST said to the Apostle Paul one time;

'And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.' - 2 Corinthians 12 vs 9 {KJV}

The Apostle Paul asked the LORD for something, you can read the previous verses to get the full story of this event, but the words of the LORD to Him is what I want to show to you. The LORD said,

FOR MY STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS

Ooo how Gracious that sounds! How Gracious it is to the heart to know that despite your flaws and human imperfections, there's no sin in your record before GOD because GOD doesn't find fault neither does HE count our sins on us! Oooo how Gracious that is! What Peace that knowledge is to the heart and the mind. You see? In our weakness, GOD's Strength is seen; in our weakness, GOD's Grace is revealed; in our human nature, GOD's Glory is risen upon us. Hallelujah! It's only when a man has accepted and acknowledged His human sinful nature, that's when the graciousness of GOD's Grace is seen in that man, and felt in the heart. - Selah. Hence, it's only a heart that has accepted His human sinful nature that can experience the graciousness of GOD's Grace, because He clearly sees a loving GOD loving an undeserving person. But the man who has not acknowledged the human sinful nature in him holds on to his vain reputations, and such are always burdened with guilt in their hearts, because they never meet up to the good standards they wish to live up to; such cannot clearly see the goodness of GOD's Grace because they are self-occupied. But dearly beloved, let go the ego, let go the self-standards which you keep failing at, come to the acknowledgement of the ever glaring reality of the human nature resident in every man on earth including you and me, accept this just as the Apostle Paul did, and by that acknowledgement, your heart comes into a perfect spot where it can clearly see and behold the goodness of GOD, as your heart begins to experience Grace, Mercy, Justification, Consolation, Comfort, that it knows very well it doesn't deserve. Glory to GOD. 

It's easier for a criminal to accept mercy than one who holds that he has done nothing wrong. - Selah. It's easier for a criminal to accept pardon than someone who holds that he is not a criminal, because the criminal has already accepted and acknowledged that he is a criminal, but the other fellow has a defense for his personality, and sees no reason for mercy. - Give these words some thoughts. 

You can only see the Grace of GOD clearly when you have come to the acknowledgement of the fact that there is nothing good in your flesh (human nature). - Think on these words.

'Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.' - Romans 4 vs 8 {KJV}

The Believer in CHRIST is that Blessed man. Hallelujah! Glory to GOD. 

No sin is in your record Beloved.

You are Lifted.

ONE CHRISTIAN ATTITUDE TO ADOPT

'With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.' - 2 Chronicles 32 vs 8

Hello dearly beloved of GOD in CHRIST JESUS. Greetings to you from GOD the FATHER ns the LORD JESUS CHRIST. I urge you to adopt the Godly character which you will clearly see in this article. GOD is with you.

Our opening passage is the story of the king Hezekiah encouraging His people when they were attacked by Assyria. Let's see His speech to the people of Judah from the verse 7;

'Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:
With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.' - 2 Chronicles 32 vs 7 - 8 {KING JAMES VERSION}

And it says that the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah. The Amplified Bible Translation puts it this way;

'With him is an arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles. And the people relied on the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.'

It says that the people relied on the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.

Dearly beloved, after hearing the Word of GOD, learn to rest on it; after receiving the Word of GOD, learn to rely on it. Throw yourself upon the Words of GOD and stay there. Regardless of the military might of the Assyrians which was described in the verse 7 as "Multitude", the people still rested themselves upon the words of the king Hezekiah, believing the words of their king Hezekiah that there was more with them than with the king of Assyria. This is Trust, this is Faith, this is Reliance. Absolute reliance. They trusted in His words, and took comfort therein. This is how the Believer in CHRIST should live His/Her life. We live, trusting that the Words of CHRIST spoken concerning us are true and truth; this is how burdens are destroyed from our hearts, and heaviness melt away from our hearts and minds when we trust and rely on the WORD this way.

When we rest upon the Words of CHRIST, the Peace of CHRIST will rest in our hearts and minds. Irrespective of what you might be faced with, have you found the Word that speaks about your situation? then rest yourself upon the Word. Maybe you are battling with a guilty conscience because of sin, here is a Word to rest upon;

'In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace...' - Ephesians 1 vs 7 {KJV}

It says that in CHRIST we have the forgiveness of sins. It didn't say that we will have forgiveness of sins when we ask GOD for it, no. But it says that we have! This is a present tense declaration. We have! You see, in CHRIST we have the forgiveness of sins. That means that the forgiveness of sins is an inheritance that we came into when we came into CHRIST, the forgiveness of sins is an inheritance we inherited in CHRIST when we came to CHRIST. Hallelujah! So the forgiveness of sins is a possession the Believer possesses in CHRIST. The forgiveness of sins is a now possession for the Believer in CHRIST. Hallelujah! How do you experience this forgiveness? Just acknowledge it.

'That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.' - Philemon 1 vs 6 {KJV}

The word "communication" as used there means "to share", "to express". So the expression of your Faith in CHRIST is only effective when you acknowledge the good things which are in you in CHRIST. Maybe you have been battling with guilt in your heart, and you have been carrying with you that burden on your chest for a while now, all you have to do is to acknowledge that the forgiveness of sins is yours in CHRIST, you have obtained forgiveness of sins in CHRIST JESUS. You saw the verse, in CHRIST we have the forgiveness of sins. Now what do you do? Rest on these words, throw yourself permanently upon it, believe it; you can even begin to declare with your mouth, "the forgiveness of sins is mine in CHRIST" "I have inherited the forgiveness of sins in CHRIST, therefore this guilt has no legal standing to be in my heart because by the forgiveness of sins which I have received in CHRIST, all my sins and wrong doings have been wiped out of my record." Hallelujah! Glory to GOD. You see, by talking that way, you aid your reliance on the Gospel, you aid your resting on the WORD, you aid your believing in the Word, you aid your Faith in the Gospel, and you will see that your heart begins to heal from that pain, suffering and heaviness you suffered; behold you are healed! behold you are full of Joy! behold Peace has come. Hallelujah!

Dearly Beloved in CHRIST, rest on the WORD of GOD today, rely on the Gospel, throw yourself upon the Grace of GOD, for that is Peace to your heart and mind. Hallelujah! Glory to GOD.

GOD is with you.

LED BY THE PEACE OF GOD IN OUR HEARTS

'And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.' - Colossians 3 vs 15

Hello dearly Beloved of GOD in CHRIST. I Trust GOD that this Article is gonna give you much light and insight into this Kingdom mystery which I now share with you. AMEN.

Let's take a closer look at the first part of our opening Bible passage;

'And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body...' - Colossians 3 vs 15a {KJV}

It says, let the Peace of GOD rule in our hearts. The word "rule" as used in that passage is from the Greek word brabeuĊ, which means 'to govern'. To govern means to lead, to have the authority or final authority over a people or a matter. Let's look at that passage in the Amplified Bible Translation to have a more precise view of that verse;

'And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].' - {AMPLIFIED BIBLE TRANSLATION}

It says let the Peace which comes from CHRIST act as umpire continually in our hearts. An Umpire is an official of a sports game, who decides the play of the game. So in other words, that verse says, Let the Peace of CHRIST decide the outgoings of our lives in our hearts. Hallelujah! The verse says, let the Peace which comes from CHRIST rule (act as umpire continually) in our hearts, deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in our minds, in that peaceful state. Glory to GOD. So it's the Peace of CHRIST that should decide and settle the decisions of our lives; it's the Peace of CHRIST that should have the final authority in our hearts over our actions (whether to do them or not), our decisions (whether we should go on with them or not). Glory to GOD. If we live by this Divine Order, we will never be confused or frustrated over any decision or plan of ours, we will always know what to do. Hallelujah!

Let the peace of GOD lead us. We must be sensitive to know that the absence or presence of GOD'S Peace in our Hearts is a Divine voice of direction telling us what not to do or what to do.

A Believer must be sensitive to the presence or absence of GOD'S Peace in His heart, as that is a way at which GOD leads us and guides our actions and decisions. You are having plans to do a thing, and your heart is without Peace, there's so much struggle in your heart? that's a clear leading from GOD that you should not do that thing which you planned to do. The Verse says, Let the Peace of GOD rule in your hearts. In other words, let the Peace of GOD be the determinant that guides our thoughts, plans and actions, and this guidance happens in our hearts through the absence or presence of Peace. So, GOD leads us from our hearts, and HE uses the tool of PEACE to orchestrate HIS leading in our lives. Hallelujah!

Let the Peace of GOD be the regulatory determinant of your life - This is GOD's pattern in leading us. Glory to GOD.

The Good News Translation of the Bible puts it plain;

'The peace that Christ gives is to guide you in the decisions you make; for it is to this peace that God has called you together in the one body. And be thankful.' - Colossians 3 vs 15

THE PEACE THAT CHRIST GIVES IS TO GUIDE YOU IN THE DECISIONS YOU MAKE

GOD has Blessed you.
