Creation Calls Christ (Art.21)
Creation Calls Christ Club International
*Genesis 1:26,27 “God said, Let Us (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the (tame) beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth. So God created man in His own image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
*Romans 8:29,30 “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 glorified (raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being).”
*1 Cor.3:3-18 “You show and make obvious that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, not written with ink but with (the) Spirit of (the) living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. Such is the reliance and confidence that we have through Christ toward and with reference to God. Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God.
(It is He) Who has qualified us (making us fit and worthy and sufficient) as ministers and dispensers of a new covenant (of salvation through Christ), not (ministers) of the letter (of legally written code) but of the Spirit; for the code (of the Law) kills, but the (Holy) Spirit makes alive.
…Why should not the dispensation of the Spirit (this spiritual ministry whose task it is to cause men to obtain and be governed by the Holy Spirit) be attended with much greater and more splendid glory?
…yes, down to this (very) day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies upon their minds and hearts. But whenever a person turns (in repentance) to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away.
Now, the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).
And all of us, as with unveiled face, (because we) continued to behold (in the Word of God) as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; (for this comes) from the Lord (Who is) the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
*Proverbs 19:20,21 “Hear counsel, receive instruction, and accept correction, that you may be wise in the time to come.
Many plans are in a man’s mind, but it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand.”
*Romans 2:1-13 “Therefore you have no excuse or defense or justification, O man, whoever you are who judges and condemns another…Are you unmindful or actually ignorant (of the fact) that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repent (to change your mind and inner man to accept God’s will)?
But by your callous stubbornness and impenitence of heart you are storing up wrath and indignation for yourself on the day of wrath and indignation, when God’s righteous judgment (just doom) will be revealed. For He will render to every man according to his works (justly, as his deeds deserve): To those who by patient persistence in well-doing (springing from piety) seek (unseen but sure) glory and honor and (the eternal blessedness of) immortality, He will give eternal life.
But for those who are self-seeking and self-willed and disobedient to the Truth but responsive to wickedness, there will be indignation and wrath. (And) there will be tribulation and anguish and calamity and constraint for every soul who (habitually) does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek (Gentile).
For God shows no partiality (undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another).
…For it is not merely hearing the Law (read) that makes one righteous before God, but it is the doers of the Law who will be held guiltless and acquitted and justified.”
+ Grace – God’s unmerited favor through Christ to
reveal what is in our hearts (John 1).
+ Mercy – God’s merited favor when we have a
conscious need. We can only show mercy.
*Galatians 5:1-26 “In (this) freedom Christ has made us free (and completely liberated us); stand fast then, and do not be hampered and held ensnared and submit again to a yoke of slavery (which you once put off).
…For we, (not relying on the Law but) through the (Holy) Spirit’s help, by faith anticipate and wait for the blessing and good for which our righteousness and right standing with God (our conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action, causes us) to hope.
…You were running the race nobly. Who has interfered in (hindered and stopped you from) your heeding and following the Truth?
…For you, brethren, were (indeed) called to freedom; only (do not let your) freedom be an incentive to your flesh and an opportunity or excuse (for selfishness), but through love you should serve one another. For the whole law (concerning human relationships) is complied with in the one precept,
You shall love your neighbor as (you do) yourself. But if you bite and devour one another (in partisan strife), be careful that you (and your whole fellowship) are not consumed by one another.
…walk and live (habitually) in the (Holy) Spirit (responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit); then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh (of human nature without God).
…But if you are guided (led) by the (Holy) Spirit, you are not subject to the Law.
Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency,
Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies),
Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like.
I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
But the fruit of the (Holy) Spirit (the work which His presence within accomplishes) is love, joy (gladness), peace,
patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness,
goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,
Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Galations 5:13-26
Against such things there is no law (that can bring a charge).
And those who belong to Christ Jesus (the Messiah) have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires. If we live by the (Holy) Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. (If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.)
Let us not become vainglorious and self-conceited, competitive and challenging and provoking and irritating to one another, envying and being jealous of one another.”
John 12:24-26 “I assure you, most solemnly I tell you,
Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains (just one grain; it never becomes more but lives) by itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others and yields a rich harvest.
Anyone who loves his life loses it, but anyone who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. (Whoever has no love for, no concern for, no regard for his life here on earth, but despises it, preserves his life forever and ever.)
If anyone serves Me, he must continue to follow Me (to cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying) and wherever I am, there will My servant be also. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.”
*BROKENNESS: the key to Resurrection and Ascension Glory in Christ Jesus!!! Life is the “self” which we should be willing to lay down (our own desires, ideas, etc.) in order to fulfill the Father God’s Perfect Will.
Can we willingly, in a free-will offering lay our lives (“self”) down?
How willing are we to yield to the Holy Spirit to annihilate all “self-life” for us, to be transformed into the likeness of Christ?
God created us to be in His likeness and to live in authority-because of Adam’s fall and the Cross of Jesus Christ and His Blood (His Divine Life) that was shed, we can become “new creations”, living in more dimensions than the first Adam.
Do we cling to flesh (human latent power flowing through the SOUL (emotions, thoughts, will) and BODY (5 senses)? Or do we choose life in the SPIRIT (conscience, intuition and Holy Spirit in us)?
*John 10:9-28 Jesus said: “I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out (freely), and will find pasture. The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd risks and lays down His (own) life for the sheep.
…I know and recognize My own, and My own know and recognize Me – even as (truly as) the Father knows Me and I also know the Father – and I am giving My (very own) life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep…They will listen to My voice and heed My call, and so (they will become) one flock under one Shepherd. For this (reason) the Father loves Me, because I lay down My (own) life – to take it back again. No one takes it away from Me. On the contrary, I lay it down voluntarily.”
*John 15:13 “No one has greater love (no one has shown stronger affection) than to lay down (give up) his own life for his friends.”
Can we really put the “self” apart, when the Holy Spirit desires to reveal His fruit in and through us, even if our friends are about to faint and despair, so that they won’t forsake to fear God?
(John 15 ; Job 6:14)
*Job 22:21-30 “Acquaint now yourself with Him (agree with God and show yourself to be conformed to His will) and be at peace; by that (you shall prosper and great) good shall come to you.
…And make the Almighty your gold and the Lord your precious silver treasure. Then you will have delight in the Almighty, and you will lift up your face to God. You will make your prayer to Him, and He will hear you…you shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light (of God’s favor) shall shine upon your ways. When they make you low, you will say, There is a lifting up; and the humble person He lifts up and saves. He will even deliver the one (for whom you intercede) who is not innocent; yes, he will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.”
*John 4:23,24 “A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers. God is a Spirit (a Spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).”
*John 9:31 “We know that God does not listen to sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and a worshiper of Him and does His will, He listens to Him.”
Do we really fear God enough to be obedient, for Fear of God alone will unite us in Christ (1 Samuel 11:7), that we may find our true lives, as it is hidden in Christ (Col.3:3). It is not enough for the soul to be saved (Romans 10:9,10), the spirit must be born-again (John 3:3-6), for us to be “in love” with our Awesome Creator of all life! He desires to dwell within us- do we seek His Kingdom (Romans 14:17,18) first within us?
*John 14:1-27 “Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me. If you had known Me (had learned to recognize Me), you would also have known My Father.
…I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father. And I will do (I Myself will grant) whatever you ask in My Name (as presenting all that I AM), so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son.
…The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who (really) loves Me; and whoever (really) loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I (too) will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.
...Jesus answered, If a person (really) loves Me, he will keep My word (obey My teaching); and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our Home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. Anyone who does not (really) love Me does not observe and obey My teaching. And the teaching which you hear and heed is not Mine, but (comes) from the Father Who sent Me,
…the Holy Spirit Whom the Father will send in My name (in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf), He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.
Peace I leave with you; My (own) peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. (Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.)”
*John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have (perfect) peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer (take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted)! For I have overcome the world. (I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.)”
*Mark 13:13 “And you will be hated and detested by everybody for My name’s sake, but he who patiently perseveres and endures to the end will be saved (made a partaker of the salvation by Christ, and delivered from spiritual death).”
*2 Timothy 3:12 “Indeed all who delight in piety and are determined to live a devoted and godly life in Christ Jesus will meet with persecution (will be made to suffer because of their religious stand).”
*John 11:40 “Jesus said to her, Did I not tell you and promised you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you would see the glory of God?”
*Luke 13:24 “Strive to enter by the narrow door (force yourselves through it), for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.”
In the Body of Christ, we are called to spiritually grow from being saved in the soul, being born-again, servants, disciples, overcomers, to become more than overcomers in Christ – “sons of God” …. “friends of God” – the Elect, the Bride of Christ!
Can we sit with Christ in heavenly places (Eph 2:6), to make the Father God’s complicated, many-sided wisdom in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects known to the angelic rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms (Eph. 3:10)? Or do we still only expect of Him to fulfill our needs?
Can we be holy, because He is Holy (1 Peter 1:16) and live presenting all of His character from within? Being sanctified by faith and pure and blameless (without fear) in the Presence of His Glory in spirit, soul and body (Acts 15:9 ; 1 Thess. 5:23) – ready as a Bride intimately “in love” with her Bridegroom Who is about to come? (Song of Solomon 8:6,7) Do we endure the race set before us, because many waters cannot quench love?
Intimacy with the Tri-Une Godhead will be our only Place of Immunity in these last days before Christ returns – our lives and conduct can only be based on Jesus Christ Himself…the Word of God the Father.
*Luke 7:14-29 “But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it.
Beware of false prophets…you will fully know them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name?
And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly (disregarding My commands). So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them (obeying them) will be like a sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock.”
Do we obey the teachings of Jesus Christ? (2 John:4-10) Do we live a life of “repentance” (His first sermon – Matthew 4:17) and do we seek the “Kingdom of His Father” in our spirits first (His last sermon – Acts 1:3 ; Matthew 6:33 ; Romans 14:17)? The revelation Peter received that He was “Christ – God Himself” was given to his spirit by the Father God, these revelations must become the Rock on which we build our lives! (Matthew 16:16-19) Then we will be able to live in authority again!
A Child was born, a Son was given – Jesus is the name for His Soul and Body, CHRIST the name of His own Spirit – God Himself!
(Isaiah 9:6). Jesus the Lamb, Christ the Lion…the Great “I AM – YAHWEH”.
*Luke 14:26,27 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his (own) father and mother (in the sense of indifference to or relative disregard for them in comparison with his attitude toward God) and (likewise) his wife and children and brothers and sisters – (yes) and even his own life also – he cannot be My disciple.
