Regarding the soon coming judgment upon all of us, God will be looking for a return on investment from each one of us!
What talents and gifts HE (God) has given us and what we have done with them while in our frail flesh will be examined whether we had HIS spirit, HIS attitude, HIS grace in us or not, i.e. the spirit of truth.
The real question is did we use what HE had given us with an attitude of having the Spirit of Truth while in our corruptible flesh? Those who seek the Truth (in attitude) in all matters will be on the side of God’s “Word of Promise.” If presented with HIS “Word” we would see it! HIS “Word of Promise” is the salvation that covers many of our sins, even all of them!
Because under HIS “Word of Promise” there is hope that we can be forgiven and strengthen that we may rise above our constant failings and omissions! The question here would be if we were presented with HIS “Word” did we accept HIS “Covenant of Promise” that we would be hidden from God’s coming stark judgment that is almost without hope because of the lack of TRUSTING in HIS “truth,” HIS “Word of Promise?
Even hidden within HIS “Word of Promise” we shall all be judged as well with what we have done with HIS hope and HIS Holy inspiration (the Holy Spirit). Our purpose is that we do the exploits in furthering HIS kingdom while on this Earth in Trusting in HIS Spirit, even while in our corruptible flesh. There will be rewards depending on what we have done with HIS Spirit of Promise” in obedience and dependence on HIM.
But as for those who may have never heard or were honestly confused about God’s “Word of Truth,” HIS “Word of Promise” there is the possibility of being judged rightly by our God who is righteous all the time! Romans 2:7 and Romans 2:14, 15 explains HIS grace here on the basis of HIS goodness. But Romans 2:16 does confirm we all shall be judged through HIS “Word of Promise,” HIS “Spirit of Truth.” Therefore it is imperative we accept the author of Truth who is God’s “Word of Promise” that we may be hidden from the stark judgment that is coming upon the Earth (2 Corinthians 5:10).

An apparent communist’s attempt at contributing to tearing apart America for the purpose of creating chaos has just occurred in our schools, but, in particular, one high school in North Carolina. A White Woman who is a school principal got up in front of hundreds of white and black students graduating from high school and made some very serious race baiting remarks about hating all white people in the United States!
Spread the word!! NOW it’s very apparent we know what they are interested in. Spread the ‘WORD’ for we are in a period of the ‘last days’ because the signs are everywhere where heads are rolling & evil leaders are shaking their fists at the CREATOR! Spread the WORD that liberates and enlightens everyone who is seeking the TRUTH to accept the living Word of WISDOM and HEALING! Time is short and evil believes they will rule and replace GOD.
It is the CLASH of opposing COVENANTS as it’s revealed in the book of Revelation!! The counter-Covenant, of God’s Covenant of Salvation, believes, Satan believes, he can and try to take everyone hostage who is the inheritors of salvation all those who have been CHOSEN by the CREATOR those who have been BORN!!
Satan isn’t his true name, but that is what we know him by, and Satan has a very serious pride issue. He does desire to ‘spite’ God to His face if possible and take as many inheritors, those of us, with him to his own destruction as possible.
Therefore we all have a choice whether to choose LIFE or choose spiritual DEATH for all eternity. Fear not the ONE who can take your life, but fear(respect & repent & receive) God and HIS living Word of Promise (Yeshua the Christ) of an inheritance for all eternity!!

Calvinism in Christianity was born in the midst of European Catholicism and became part of America’s Christian foundation in the beginning. Our forefathers heeded the Lord in those days but have since then we are learning from the scriptures and the revelation of God in nature that God is a relational Lord who loves us so, even as a hurricane!
The Chief Reason why “free will” is important to God is attitude and the acceptance of His Covenant Word. For without a receptive and a repenting attitude and a willingness to accept God’s Covenant Word, His Son, there is only the rejection of God’s love and there is no salvation without blood. Blood was the payment for the law of sin & death to be released so we can be free through His payment.
So God showed His love by paying this debt. And it must be said, love can never be dictated nor demanded a relationship. God, after all, is the author of what relationships are supposed to mean!
Law and judgment are that cause alone, the dictating of righteousness to ensure it is the rule. And that rule is the requirement that the law of sin and death be fulfilled for which God did demonstrate His love through His Son dying to pay that debt of the law of sin and death. So, again, we might be saved from it and thereby doing it with a willing Spirit through the promise and the encouragement of His living Word!
Therefore, it is up to the inheritors of salvation to believe, to accept, and to receive the gift that was paid! A gift of salvation free of the law of sin and death.
Who are the inheritors? Those of us who have been born on the earth. We have that choice between the spirit of life (salvation from ourselves) or the spirit of death (separation from God) for eternity.
And with all this said. It’s the Father’s Covenant that is dependent on our agreement to accept a gift of God’s living Word. That Word sealed a deal on His only Covenant that we might accept His way and not find our own way, to god, in knowing the difference between good and evil. Always searching for a set of laws that we might lean back and enjoy our self-created righteousness and joys without God’s presence and help.

Covenant building is covenant obedience and walking in partnership with the one who freely gave us a way out of our sin and degradation! A Covenant of Promise we can choose to trust and enter for our own Spiritual well-being for eternal life or for a spiritual death for all eternity without God if we choose our own way to god.
Obedience to the Father’s (God’s) Covenant is from our Spirit with His spiritual encouragement and promises. Because it is not through the flesh which seems to always boast itself in pride and bolster itself above others!
In Covenant, we are to grow in the knowledge and wisdom of God through the obedience to His Covenant of promise & salvation that comes through wisdom & the living Word from the mouth of our Father God!
So, when we walk by the Spirit we are walking by faith, which is trust, thereby walking in our new Covenant Robe; We do put on His righteousness which is from His Word of Truth with our obedience from our Spirit! But never do we do so from our own boastful prideful flesh. We get our righteousness from the 2nd Adam: Yeshua’s heal was wounded when He crushed Satan’s head, crushing his authority over the man.
Therefore, if we walk habitually with continuous action by the Spirit we will no longer fulfill the lust of the flesh nor the pride of life. From this view we are no longer slaves of sin but now slaves of righteousness by our obedience that turns to slavery in righteousness for we are now brothers with the Son of God who is the firstborn of many brothers but without sin. HE is the one who came to SHOW the way!

The teacher of the Word of Salvation must endure all trouble with faithfulness for the sake of the ‘chosen’, those who “love the truth.”
It must be understood that those who do NOT love nor SEEK the truth will be sent a delusion as like in the case of pharaoh in Moses era. The apostasy, attitude of unrighteousness, sin, and foolishness begins in the heart and manifests outwardly afterwards, with the acceptance of any level of obsession and evil. The delusion that God allows is the judgement of unrepentant sin, i.e. Homosexuality for example is the judgment upon them.
“For this reason I [Apostle Paul] endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen [those who love/seek the truth], so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus [through continual obedience] and with it eternal glory.”

Our Creator Father God first loved us!! Why would we give up our heritage to live in His love for a bowl of soup? It’s our old nature (our body) that has to be controlled/balanced by our spirits. Everyday is a walk of trust as we GROW in His knowledge & wisdom, & love to over come our old nature. Everyday we must continue to trust God in this world which is ruled by an Adversary (The Devil) who hates God’s inheritors of salvation and is jealous of us in receiving God’s love.
So I contend! As it says in Deut. 4:31 God’s merciful covenant is proof He will be there for us always! His covenant is PROOF we have a Father we can always TRUST!
Even if we walk away willfully and strongly because of other gods we may be running after, we can still come back to Him through repentance! We are accepted again into His love for our deliverance (salvation) again from our sinful selves! WE may break (willfully& strongly) His covenant, His heart, but HE never will. To walk away from His love for another god does have terrible consequences.
But of course, GOD’s door will always be open when we come back to HIM and HE will again throw a HUGE FEAST for our return no matter!!! For our deliverance (salvation) from our old man is through His Covenant of love (His proof to us) which His WORD of PROMISE (Jesus) sealed the deal on that contract! We need to grow our SPIRITS in love towards our Father in Heaven that our SPIRITS will RULE over our natural appetites, bodies that we can glorify God during our time on Earth which is a certain time of decision for all eternity.

Stunted in my Growth? No! Can’t be!
I simply ignore God’s confirmation of His Word in Creation, that’s all.
Yep, you’re stunted.
Calvinism can and should only be associated with new Christians who need the milk of the WORD yet in order to understand the truth and how it relates to real life in Christ Jesus.
The milk of the Word means those Christians who have not grown enough to experience Christ in their lives to gain the wisdom to handle the Word of truth in tough everyday situations.
Well, some Christians have been stunted in the belief that Calvinism is the truth for all time not understanding wisdom to go on building precept upon precept in order to see more clearly in their everyday lives. It is true as it says in the Word of God, that we once were seeing through a glass darkly! But now we see much more clearly with the help of the Living Word of God!
Those Christians who are stunted are simply doomed to high ivory towers of intellectualism with wonderful sounding proverbs that may not have the experience of the Father’s Covenant of salvation in action! That action must come in real world situations where God can act and deliver and interact personally with YOU as an “inheritor of salvation” that only Calvinistic angels can only dream. God surely is not in the business of creating more angels.
God is creating more “inheritors of salvation” whosoever will choose His love over any other distraction and god (toys or agendas) of this world! If you and I were born into this world, the Earth, then we have BEEN CHOSEN from God the Father to become “inheritors of Covenant” if we choose HIS Word of Life to LIVE inside of us. Then HE is able to give us LIFE and STRENGTH to live with Him and overcome THIS WORLD ruled temporarily by Satan.
Praise His majesty the Lord!
Yom Kippur: It’s central themes were and ARE atonement and repentance.
~R.OliverLuce | 10-05-14
Prior to Yom Kippur God made a deal with the first Jew, namely Abraham (whom you might even call the first Christian if you will, looking forward to the coming savior) regarding atonement & repentance.
God made a deal with Abram, who became Abraham, with HIS Covenant of salvation by God the Father and the “Spirit of Truth” (H.S.) passing through the pieces of the sacrifice on the alter, that would and does take away Abram’s sins (and ours!). If Abraham believed and accepted God’s “Word of Promise” (Jesus the Christ) regarding this covenant God made with him He would have a hope and a future. And we know that Abraham did so, and walked with God by trust.
So we can say Jesus was the pieces of flesh on that alter God used to pass through with His very own SPIRIT OF TRUTH which is the Holy Spirit (Gen.15:17). And as we all know today, Jesus came at the right time and died on a stake to seal that deal to show the world of God’s Word is trustworthy!! God’s covenant covers our sin. Nothing else will do.
According to Jewish tradition, God inscribes each person’s fate for the coming year into a book, the Book of Life, on Rosh Hashanah, and waits until Yom Kippur to “seal” the verdict.
This, my friends, is salvation
(Q): An atheist asked, “why is it about the blood in [true]Christianity?”
(A): A well known evanglist responded by, “It’s like soap, can’t be clean unless you apply the soap! So likewise you must apply the blood!!”
To sum up salvation:
To apply the blood to your life means you must choose between life and death for your life; Apply the blood daily to your life with “your” faith(in His Word) and that means it is done positionally and daily. If you fail to apply the blood everyday then eventually the Holy Spirit will not continue to strive with you! Therefore, in like manner you are willfully walking away from His Covenant protection, breaking it with eventual terrible consequences for your eternal life.
A wise son will obey his father and grow in wisdom and makes his father proud of him. This, my friends, is salvation!
How God Does NOT Hate Us; He Sees What’s Missing ~Gays Take Notice!
by R.OliverLuce | 05-09-2013
When we give ourselves to Christ we reckon our flesh as DEAD in Christ!
This is why the Father doesn’t see wrong in us. HE only SEES what’s NOT in us!
For God is committed to our ongoing experience in life, in the Holy Spirit. We practice godliness by choosing & relying as a child like person in the “Holy Spirit” [Something like the ‘Spirit’ of football mania but wonderfully more powerful and beyond our fleshly comprehension].
He is focused on the new nature that you have thrown off in His “Arm of Love” Jesus.
This is why He puts a finger on that part of your/our life that is not functioning in relationship with HIM. When HE does this He’s actually pointing to your/our next upgrade in Christ [His arm of love].
For God has no adverse thoughts toward you or me but simply to see us conform to the image of HIS love & grace (God’s arm of love, Jesus)!!
God the Father created His Covenant of love and sent His ‘Arm of Love’ to Earth to ‘seal that deal’ on the Father’s Covenant. We are FREE to choose whether we want His love & holy inspiration to grow & mature in HIS wisdom, to do exploits for His enjoyment and ours as well.
