So you thought is was over when you got baptised and professed that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and was resurrected on the third day. SORRY TO BURST YOUR BUBBLE, that was just the qualifying blood mark, the work has now begun!
Believe it, being saved is not your one way ticket to the heaven, unfortunately this is the belief of many christian communities today. We continue to breed; virtue-less, powerless christians that are plagued with the ills of this world.
No amount of good works are going to make us better people. We need the anointing of God to change us. Even Paul had issues and lamented in 2 Cor 12: 7-10 about the “thorn in the flesh”.
In Jer 31:33 God said ” I will put my law in their inward parts and write in their hearts and will be their God and they shall be my people”. This improved covenant was targeted towards the house of Judah (Praise), it sort to address the flaws of the adminstering of the fleshy laws ( written on stone tablets) that were constantly broken by the people. God honours covenant and so improved his covenant so that we will all benefit.
For a victorious, virtuous people to be established, change must come in the form of transformation. Transformation of our very essence or nature which is our DNA. God wants to rewrite the DNA within us because we have adopted “Adam”s DNA and the result of his DNA is clear…… For as in Adam all die, 1 Cor 15: 21-23. This concept might sound strange but 1 Cor 15:51 says that we shall not all sleep but we shall be changed. GOd wants us to adopt Jesus’ DNA……. By man came also the resurrection of the dead….even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
When the (613 Mitzvahs) laws are written in our heart then virtue can flow from us and we could do what Romans 12:2 says …….. that ye may prove what is good, and acceptable, and the perfect will of God. And just for clarity, 3 John 1:2 explains GOd’s will…… Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth.
Remember there is a heaven to gain and a hell to shun!!!! It’s a work in progress.
