TO BE ALIVE UNTO GOD
THROUGH JESUS CHRIST
"For HE THAT IS DEAD IS FREED FROM SIN. Now IF WE BE DEAD WITH CHRIST, WE BELIEVE THAT WE SHALL ALSO LIVE WITH HIM: Knowing that CHRIST BEING RAISED FROM THE DEAD DIETH NO MORE; DEATH HATH NO MORE DOMINION OVER HIM. For in that he died, HE DIED UNTO SIN ONCE: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise RECKON YE ALSO YOURSELVES to BE DEAD INDEED UNTO SIN, BUT ALIVE UNTO GOD through Jesus Christ our Lord."
"For as in Adam all DIE, even so IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE. But EVERY MAN IN HIS OWN ORDER: CHRIST THE FIRSTFRUITS; afterward THEY THAT ARE CHRIST'S at his coming."
"For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that IF ONE DIED FOR ALL, THEN WERE ALL DEAD: And that he died for all, that THEY WHICH LIVE SHOULD NOT HENCEFORTH LIVE UNTO THEMSELVES, BUT UNTO HIM WHICH DIED FOR THEM, and ROSE AGAIN."
II Corinthians 5:14-15
All those that are converted believers have BELIEVED IN THEIR HEART THAT GOD, THE FATHER HAS RECONCILED THEM UNTO HIMSELF; therefore they SHALL BE SAVED and SHALL NOT BE CONDEMNED.
All those that BELIEVE NOT in the work of reconciliation done in Jesus Christ by God, the Father ARE CONDEMNED ALREADY.
"For GOD SENT NOT HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD; but THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED. HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM (JESUS - 'THE WORD OF GOD') IS NOT CONDEMNED: but HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, because he HATH NOT BELIEVED IN THE NAME ('THE WORD OF GOD' - JESUS) OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD. And THIS IS THE CONDEMNATION, that LIGHT IS COME INTO THE WORLD, and MEN LOVED DARKNESS RATHER THAN LIGHT, because their deeds were evil."
To believe in the 'NAME' of the Son of God is to believe in 'THE WORD OF GOD' as the Godhead intended. 'JESUS' NAME' is 'THE WORD OF GOD'. All that believe in 'THE WORD OF GOD' ('JESUS CHRIST') as the Godhead intended SHALL HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
"And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and HIS NAME (JESUS) IS CALLED THE WORD OF GOD."
"And THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and DWELT AMONG US, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
"IF YE CONTINUE IN THE FAITH GROUNDED AND SETTLED, and BE NOT MOVED AWAY FROM THE HOPE OF THE GOSPEL, WHICH YE HAVE HEARD."
JESUS CHRIST'S LIFE IN THE FLESH will stand as YOUR RECORD OF LIFE IN THE FLESH IF YOU CONTINUE IN THE FAITH and BE NOT MOVED AWAY.
"BE YE THEREFORE PERFECT, EVEN AS YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT."
link for NOTE-C:
Do you really believe YOU CAN BECOME PERFECT as YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT through religion or some other way? I DON'T THINK SO...
JESUS LIVED A LIFE THAT WAS PERFECT EVEN AS HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT, REGARDING YOUR SALVATION. The PERFECT LIFE THAT JESUS LIVED WILL BE THE SAME PERFECT LIFE ACCREDITED TO YOU BY GOD, THE FATHER.
When God, the Father sees you He will only see the same perfection seen in The Only Begotten Son of God that became The First Begotten from the Dead and The First Born among many Brethren. This is a COMMAND FROM JESUS TO YOU to BE PERFECT as the Father in Heaven is perfect. THIS IS NOT AN OPTION! THANK GOD, YOUR ETERNAL FATHER, THAT JESUS CHRIST LIVED, IN FULL, THE COMMAND TO BE PERFECT AS THE FATHER IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT and His RECORD OF FULFILLMENT WILL BE YOUR RECORD OF FULFILLMENT.
"BE WATCHFUL, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I HAVE NOT FOUND THY WORKS PERFECT BEFORE GOD."
"IF BY ANY MEANS I MIGHT ATTAIN UNTO THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. NOT AS THOUGH I HAD ALREADY ATTAINED, EITHER WERE ALREADY PERFECT: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. LET US THEREFORE, AS MANY AS BE PERFECT, BE THUS MINDED: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you."
Our perfection is found within Jesus Christ's perfection --> it is not a separate perfection.
"For unto which of the angels said he at any time, THOU ART MY SON, THIS DAY HAVE I BEGOTTEN THEE? And again, I WILL BE TO HIM A FATHER, and HE SHALL BE TO ME A SON? And again, WHEN HE BRINGETH IN THE FIRSTBEGOTTEN INTO THE WORLD, he saith, And LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM."
"Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath MADE US meet TO BE PARTAKERS OF THE INHERITANCE OF THE SAINTS IN LIGHT: Who hath DELIVERED US FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS, and hath TRANSLATED US INTO THE KINGDOM OF HIS DEAR SON: In whom WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For BY HIM WERE ALL THINGS CREATED, that are IN HEAVEN, and THAT ARE IN EARTH, VISIBLE and INVISIBLE, whether they be THRONES, or DOMINIONS, or PRINCIPALITIES, or POWERS: ALL THINGS WERE CREATED BY HIM, AND FOR HIM: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And HE IS THE HEAD OF THE BODY, THE CHURCH: WHO IS THE BEGINNING, THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD; that in all things he might have the preeminence."
"But ye are come unto MOUNT SION, and unto the city of the living God, THE HEAVENLY JERUSALEM, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the GENERAL ASSEMBLY and CHURCH OF THE FIRSTBORN, WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN HEAVEN, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of JUST MEN MADE PERFECT,"
Hebrews 12:22-23 & Isaiah 61:10
