"Crisis? What crisis?"

   God, as interpreted by religion, is being used as not Who He is, but as a backdrop for humanistic misinformation that undermines our created will from God to intercede for and go the distance for those for whom we love and care. The "avoid conflict at all costs" emotional "peace loving" complacency presented in organized church gatherings actually is as unloving as anyone can imagine in that people need to know we will be there for them no matter what. The idea "to each his own" is taken to the extreme where "live and let live" means to do nothing except put yourself first and, if available, use anyone who one can use to get the "pleasures of experience" that seem to be few and far between.

   Religious self determination presents God not as a caring ever-present personage that is alive and well. Rightly, we can talk to and honor Him with our steadfast determination to not let those we love fall aside to the world's ways of distance and memory where we cannot be a present help to them. And they cannot be a present help to us, simply because we think that letting go makes us independently stronger as an individual. Syrupy sweet fancy feel good messages of "lay over and accept being thrown under a bus as if it is God's will; because evil works to separate and ruin the living together moments loved ones have to share" only serves to make worse the problems we suffer as imperfect people who need each other to pull together in spirit and in truth.

   Faith action the way God created it to be means to not give up in our cares and concerns for those we hold dear. We certainly cannot, person by person, deal individually with everyone in the entire world - so the ones we do have personal involvement with would be at a severe loss for us to cast off their troubles from ourselves in ways where we cast them off from, our lives. Illusory thinking errors that we must deal with losses as a "good tragedy" that supersedes a “later in our journey good triumph" comes when we hide our concerns from the course of faithful endurance to not give up on those to whom we are committed.

   A person is accountable not for what he or she does, but to whom each person they are accountable to in the decisions to do what is done. Centering on a sinful act to justify begrudging a person for what he or she does denies who the person is responsible to; first in Christ unto God, and second depending to whom the person has promised commitments. The reason for this is God’s creation, as it applies to the fallen world, is focused in justification in Christ over the Fall itself.

   The Fall itself was in Eve’s decision to independently orientate her place with Adam in betrayal of their shared faithfulness to God with an invading persuasion of influence from the knowledge of good and evil. Decision making based in a word of promise is the foundation of all that was, is, and will be because God Himself bases all He does in His Word of Promise. Therefore, to reiterate the point, promises, and decision making according to that promise, is the very essence of salvation, marriage, business, child rearing, neighborly interaction, charity, commerce, government, politics, entertainment, and all other forms of human expression that may exist.

   Because the knowledge of good and evil takes from the leading of God through His Word, the man Jesus Christ, and converts (subverts) it into one’s own decisions about what is right and what is wrong, depending on one’s own desires as separate from respect for who they are to their parents as children, themselves as single adults, their mate as married, and to society and work through their associative respect for their place with their loved ones – with consideration about who their loved ones are in Christ unto them; people’s purposeful decisions automatically find conflict exactly where those decisions need unity and harmony.

   This disunity in decision making creates frustrated self defensive compulsions to work knowledge of good over evil in any way imaginable to force situations into circumstances that appear to ease the efforts put forth. When it is believed that God is the God of the knowledge of good and evil, rather being the God in victory over that same knowledge, there comes an intensified ambition to defend Godly works for self justification people believe is fighting for God Himself by fighting for His ways as one’s own. But, His ways they are not following because He is concerned not with what people do as who they are – He is concerned with who they are that changes what they do.

   Who a person is is always of their alliances of promise. Ignoring attentions to respect in duty to whom one is responsible by promise immediately opens the doors to false validation according to physical activities that also forces a feigned continuing ignorance of the promise. However, who a person is is not found in their behavior because behavior is symptomatic of the reasons a person has for what they do. When a person is confused about themselves and others as to why something is done or not done, there are peer pressures of influence, unrecognized demonic sway, hardship driven desires to overcompensate for lack; and most often a combination of impulses derived from all three.

   In their intellectual reasoning and determination to do and be right in and of themselves nobody is able to be sinless. Growing through adversity to become a ‘better me’ ignores solutions to problems by progressively honing ever more divided categories of judgments about who oneself and others are. Deftly integrated into this process is the practice of indentifying godly principles according to practical matters of self assuredness. Lost from the process is that God is alive to lead the moments through responsible open honesty with whoever it is one is joined to in deciding the moments.

   By working to manage strength over our inconsistencies in developing coping skills that correlate our desires to be well, successful, and happy through the misdirected gift of faith we have a measure of from Christ, we take liberty in lording it over His leading to lead our own ambitions of self preservation. It may be said, “What is the difference if a person is successful in living as a result?" Evolutional creationism (self determination) is a self-defeating concept that eventually, always, turns back in upon itself.

   There are two, and only two contradictory to each other, overall alternatives to this question each person struggles with in some way: One: Humankind is an evolving species that in its intent desires to be as advanced as ambition will let it. This is Socialistic Independence. Two: Humankind created by God for His intended purposes desires to be as advanced as obedience will let them. This is Independent Socialism.

   Outside and above either, as true evil or good of humankind is neither socialism nor independence, is freedom from the struggle to fight evil to be good or enjoy evil as a good. The authority realized through faith in Christ’s Authority allows the spirit person to rule the flesh person with respect to Who God is, Who Christ is in Him, who each of us is in Him, who our mate is in us in Him, who our children are in us in Him, who our neighbors and work associates are to us in Him, and so on always in that order.

   This means, when one or another of us tends to our dealings with, for example a work associate; all aspects of interactive fellowship with that associate are subject to our responsible place with our extended family members, who are subject to our responsible place with our children, who are subject to our responsible place with our mate. The direction of flow of conversational privacy is progressively more open and forthright through this ‘ladder’ of revealing to where there are no barriers to full open honesty with one’s mate.

   Consequently, this order of proper respect for authorities based in exercising the values of promise gives intercessory prayer, and the faith actions that follow, its designed structure in honoring God’s will of power authority in His Word through our word. This is how His law of commandment under mercy through grace is written on the tables of our hearts. It is also the process of how to put God first in whatsoever we do we do in His Name, and there is nothing ever to hide in secrecy because we have the place, in God’s proper order in His desires to share of human order in our desires to share, where our vow unto Him to our mate is ‘no matter what’ (for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, etc.).

   Socialistic Individualism is a structural system of authorities that comprise a series of ‘umbrellas’ to mimic God’s designed ‘chain-of-command’ freedoms of expression of living awareness in His Truth of livelihood. This mimicry is contradictory to God’s will while most religious observance embraces individualistic free will to worship in the false spirit of ‘truth’ found through analyzing one’s understanding of right and wrong drawn from the knowledge of good that seems right vs. the knowledge of evil that seems wrong.

   Socialistic Individualism’s overall umbrella is a rule of law worldview that humanity is a developing collective organism that forms agreed rules of conduct. World government is the structured control to align and manage lesser umbrellas. Countries are an overall governmental umbrella that either forces rules of law for citizens to comply with or enforces controls of rules of law citizens agree their government may enforce. Under a country’s umbrella of authority are the various states, territories, and so on down to a small town that has its umbrella of structured rules of authority people are expected to live in compliance to serve.

   Since commerce derived from business and labor is the engine of productivity that any population within any of the various umbrellas of socialistic individualism needs to function for the communities to function as cohesive fact-of-life securities, protections, and well being; integrating ‘God’ according to indigenous cultural traditions and belief must deny Who God is aside from organized religious observances in order to keep established society’s rule of law controls for hoped for peace, tranquility, and an ever more progressive sense that humankind’s survival is for furthering its survival.

   This requires concepts of adherence to reinforcing individualistic personal will of self esteem based upon fairness, equality, and the working of the rules of law to rate and judge people according to community standards that, ultimately in the false utopia of humanly exalted conquest over adversity, bind a person’s will of faith in the real Christ to be folded into accepting a false Christ, an antichrist worship of Godly principles in the Name of God. All the different Christ’s of the good side of the knowledge of good and evil are expressions of each of the territorial demons’ original angelic personalities gone awry through satan’s claim to be equal with God.

   And, of course, in order to keep established a foothold through the will of choosing of people, there is a ‘satan’ as counterpart to the ‘Christ’ of each religion. Some religions do not acknowledge a ‘Son of God’ by placing emphasis on a Prophet of God who holds a ‘Christ’ position in the religion’s makeup, or God Himself holds the office of Son and Father Creator. In any case, confusion is confusion about Who Jesus Christ is as the good that offsets evil where both are thought to need the other.

   “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” as Isaac Newton said. (Newton knew that, ecclesiastically, God is God and satan, as an angelic entity created by Him, could be no equal with His Son.) The statement was about the physically observable properties of the cosmos as bound to the scope of knowing allowed by God. God’s Kingdom of Reality in Jesus Christ is the pattern of structure Socialistic Individualism uses in its religions to reject His patterns of structure by making those same patterns into humankind’s serviceable use to succeed as a developing self aware species of will in its own right. The deception is the belief that religions are for the benefit of people, for the purposes of people, to be all that people can be.

   However, all people are created to be is at all times determined by God and not humankind. God is not amused with the various cultural religious groups of communities that either say their religion is the only way to God (specific rationalization) or all religions are different ways to God (general rationalization). In that, He has One plan for His Truth of living to manifest His Word of Life. This can be seen in understanding the umbrellas of His created ways of authority: His overall umbrella of world authority is Christ.

   Under Christ’s umbrella of Authority is each and every man and each and every woman. When a man and woman marry, together they are the authority over their children. Under that umbrella of authority of a family that is headed by the authority of the husband man combined with his wife’s will of authority with him, under Christ’s Authority, is a township, city, etc. in agreement with neighbors who, each in their own house of name, rely in the Authority of God in Christ. States, countries, and the world then are able to realize the form of humanity that is created to be for God’s sake.

   As God indwells the human heart through faith in Christ the ‘rule of law’ is written on the tables of one’s conscience. In personal will under His Authority socially contrived materialistic civil laws are not required to keep populations in line with mutual respect over the fear of consequences. The central difference between Social Individualism and Godly Reality is that productivity to avoid fear of retribution in worldly wisdom is productivity for thankful appreciation that one has a life worth defending, with God’s assistance for His glory, to share with one’s mate, children, extended family, neighbors, and so on with respect to who each person is according to their commitments of promise.

   This is because God upholds His commitment of promise through prophecy to the world through Jesus Christ Who upheld His commitment of promise to the world. John the Baptist was the last prophet of the Old Testament who prophesied of the end of dispensational prophecy to open the avenues of personal expressions of prophecy through promises of commitment in marriage, under that business, under that family, and under that neighbors, and under that communities, etc.

   Understanding the knowledge of good and evil is not the same as knowing the knowledge of good and evil. God saves us from the knowing in our understanding that knowing Him gives us to understand our separation in Christ from that knowing – even though, in Him with His indwelling presence with us, we know to understand that good and evil knowledge is subject to His leading. His creative passion for us through faith in His life is to take on the knowledge of good and evil in such a way where His Word Authority in Truth supersedes all opposition and variance to His absolute righteous purity.

   It gives the strengths of satisfaction that we are cared for through His Light of graceful mercy that fully transcends the knowledge of good and evil beyond any personal or general concerns that hamper our proper living awareness. Focusing the measure of faith unto salvation into the knowledge of good and evil, in hope to have results by changing the evil of it into the good of it (or attempting to quarantine the evil away from the good of fallen knowledge), in order to reduce its sway, serves to increase its sway. Our true gift of the measure of faith, being wholly from Christ’s faith in His own Word from our Creator Father, is given by Christ’s defeat of the entire scope of the knowledge of good and evil.

   Communication’s iconic symbols, especially well known religious symbols, of expression (words, pictures, gestures, actions, sounds, music, statues, landmarks, or what-have-you) are ambiguous at their best in relaying truth. Since God’s Holy Spirit is the very Truth of His Word, Jesus Christ that outflows from the heart, nothing mortally experienced can speak the knowing that knowing Him brings from the inside. When a person builds sets of sensory imagery he or she feels comfortable responding to there is a throwing aside of things that do not correspond with those established sets. These things can only speak about truth but cannot convey truth itself.

    When a person’s emptiness is trained by their upbringing to infill from the outside a making of who he or she is, they are set up to think of salvation as coming from the outside just as anything good they have been taught to emulate. Preaching can seem to be a fiend, an enemy to the self perpetuated self, in that respect where sharing a word of faith must speak through the knowledgeable instinctual flesh person to the covered over and hidden lost wandering and wondering spirit person. Each receiver of any type of message, at all times, has the will of choice to decide what that message means to them.

   When a mortally motivated persona realizes and holds onto what he or she believes is right, also realized and held onto is the opposite to avoid... the wrong – and their immortally motivated persona shrivels and shrinks from being overwhelmed by its world bound counterpart. Incidentally? This is an area of spirituality where a man and woman’s marriage can excel. There is security in God’s promises through shared faith and when it is consciously realized that each their responsibilities for their body belongs to their mate, their combined spiritual persona much more easily allows recognition of Christ’s indwelling presence.

   As a person’s personal right/wrong inventory builds and grows, the strengths of emotional/intellectual indentifying with that inventory deepens into a self perception that requires one’s environmental conditions, and the people moving through that environment, to support his or her established belief system. Blind to the sin of it by assuming sin is what it is not, the same attitude produces more sinfulness to overcome the evil with the good that is from the same source. And, of course, that good that is offset by the evil that offsets the good is the nature of the self God asks each and every person to relinquish.

   Since sin commonly is recognized to be variance from responsible truth, and God proclaims His Word Jesus Christ is Truth in the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, then what sin is carries a quite different meaning to God than it generally does to people. Because God obviously, and continually, knows this fact, from the most minute atom particle to the broadest expanse of generality, we can see where each of our own misunderstandings about Sin itself is found in actual trust in the symbols we use as if the symbols themselves are avenues to reality.

   We do this most often because we do not have an actual living respectful friendship with Jesus Christ. We try to form people around us into a perception of Christ in order to feel we are Christ-like in our requirements that others conform to His commandment laws with regard to the good side of the knowledge of good and evil. “Nice is right” and “mean is bad” emotions rule the heart and ultimately pressure force their acceptance of their own evil to find the fears they need to be converted into our own perception of intelligently emotional service we have been duped to think is from God.

   There are two types of sin though both types are sin in that sin is wrongdoing. Sins of the flesh are willful acts of error whether or not a person knows what he or she is choosing to do is wrong. The reason(s) one says and does what one says or does tell if word or deed is acceptable as beneficial or rejected as detrimental. Some people are better equipped to comprehend the significance of saying or doing, or not saying or doing, anything that may be said or done.

   As personal perspectives are oriented to, because of from, each person’s particular arena of involvement as different from another’s place and purposes, the clearer the understanding of the differences between right and wrong the greater the responsibilities to choose right over wrong.  A war in the members breaks out when the soul person gets sick and tired of being sick and tired and fights back against the flesh person through the evil side of the knowledge of good and evil because it knows the good of the flesh is destroying life by trying to be good.

   The knowledge of good and evil always ‘lives’ through balancing opposite assumptions. “For everything God has that is good, the devil has the evil counterpart.” is easily and logically understood, but it is not the truth. It suggests that evil is as good as good in its ability to persuade. One may stipulate that anything that is not of God, Who is Truth itself, is untruthful and therefore the opposite of God, but this error of reasoning has several fallacies: One is to assume imaginative fantasy aside from God’s absolute truth in reality actually does have any merit of existence (time passes into yesterday where what remains are the retained reasons for the choices made carried into today – that can be washed away with honest trust in request).

   Another is to assume that one’s personal awareness to choose makes a person who they are by their willful choices. Underlying most fallacies that hold that God’s goodness has an opposite evil is the conclusive presumption that evil has any power. Any power it is presumed evil has is stolen power from God much the same way a corrupt police officer, attorney, and/or judge uses citizens’ trust in the protective powers publically honored badges of security are designed to insure, to serve their own malicious hidden aims.

   Within the good side of the knowledge of good and evil there is a good and evil. And, within the evil side of good and evil there is a good and evil. The good spoken of here, that is in both the good side and evil side of fallen knowledge, is evil on the good side and good on the evil side – keeping in mind that this good is not the good of God. Knowledge of good and evil within the good side of the knowledge of good and evil comes about by one’s spirit person leading the flesh person. Within the evil side of the knowledge of good and evil, knowledge of good and evil comes about by one’s flesh person leading the spirit person.

 

Example:

   Islam and witchcraft both involve God created people who are included, as everyone is, in His proclamation, “Whosoever will…” Matthew chapter 10. In comparing Islam with witchcraft by viewing Islam as the good side of the knowledge of good and evil and witchcraft as the evil side of the knowledge of good and evil we can understand how salvation from the knowledge of good and evil must be by faith in Christ in asking for His indwelling presence by His Holy Spirit of Truth. His Light of Creation causes the darkness of hidden inconsistencies to flee our spirit person before Him, even though we are living imperfect flesh lives, as we are yet to be wholly with Him in heaven; Romans chapter 7.

   Islam rejects Jesus Christ as the Messiah savior of the world and holds to the law of God and the Prophets. Witchcraft rejects Jesus Christ as the Messiah savior of the world and rejects the law of God and the Prophets. Official Islam respects submission to the power of God the Creator while populous Muslim peoples use animistic enchantments, iconic symbolism, and ritualistic rites to manipulate His power through their hands for protection, healing, and personal welfare. Witchcraft uses animistic enchantments, iconic symbolism, and ritualistic rites to manipulate God’s power, into the adversary’s hands, through their hands for protection, healing, and personal welfare.

   Islam defends righteousness in retribution against evil by the rule of God’s law to eliminate opposition to personal freedom in adherence to God’s law. Witchcraft defends unrighteousness in retribution against good by the rule of God’s law to eliminate opposition to personal freedom away from adherence to God’s law. Muslims chant various names of God in certain numbers of repetition within particular conditions to receive protection from harm, bad habits, disaster, sickness, fear, danger, miscarriage, enemies, childlessness, and faults. Witches chant various names of antichrist entities in certain numbers of repetition within particular conditions to receive protection from harm, bad habits, disaster, sickness, fear, danger, miscarriage, enemies, childlessness, and faults.

   Islam elevates morality over immorality and witchcraft elevates immorality over morality. For Muslim morality to solidify its strengths of importance over evil, it needs evil to stand against (and ever more depths of evil to destroy) to build and grow an ever closer to God righteousness. For witchcraft immorality (because the ‘goodness’ of witchcraft is meddling into powers and controls to please oneself) to solidify its strengths of importance over good, it needs morality to stand against (and ever more heights of goodness to corrupt) to build and grow as ever more close to one’s self righteousness.

   No group of people are left untouched by the pervasive dominance flesh awareness of good vs. evil has, in religious acknowledgment of a Supreme Being or Higher Power - the yin yang forces of light in balance with darkness – or non-religious natural honesty in accepting a religious position that God may or may not exist. Secular and humanist religious stances hold to ideals that ideas of God pragmatically help to relieve fears concerning the unknown and the unknowable. This causes imaginative intellectualism to reinforce the knowledge of good and evil as necessary substantiation to develop humankind as a collective species of its own progression.

   People who are reasonably disgusted with their understanding that no religion can be of a real God, since each system of belief claims to be the ‘One and Only Way’, have left to their-selves being little self contained gods. Through what works for personal and social health and well being, with personal happiness and social order as humanistic goals, those who decide the good of right over the bad of right and the bad of wrong over the good of wrong, in attempts to form a real good against a real bad that will establish the controls necessary to feel satisfied with working to achieve stability, agree in rules of law based in logical reasoning.

[For those who may be sensitive to name use, in the above section the specific name ‘Allah’ is respectfully referred to as ‘God’ seeing that is the generally accepted term to most people for the Supreme Being, our Father the Creator.]

Understanding mid-east religious variance:

Asa or "He says."

   The above example may be understood by replacing Islam with every major (and minor) world religion no matter its method of approach to God. Sacrificial responsibility for allowing one’s self to work personal worthiness as stipulated by ideals of personal development reinforces individual will against the will of God. It does not align one’s behavior in the flesh with God’s expectations to trust Him in His gifts of compassionate redemption. It is His Word that gave to us redemption before we were born over any sins (separateness from trust in His loving-kindnesses) we may involve ourselves throughout our flesh lives.

   God does have requirements to accept His gift of absolute forgiveness. But, His requirements are not the same as mankind’s beliefs about what those requirements are. Mankind’s wisdom concerning God’s requirements of redemption are based in manipulating the balances of performance in all the aspects of physical endeavor according to the right and wrong of the knowledge of good and evil. Frankly, stepping back out of Jesus Christ’s “follow Me” call to trust Him to be the Savior He is makes a person a false god in service to the deceiver of human hearts and intelligence.

   God’s wisdom, just as a parent’s concern for his or her children defends who a child is expected to be in his or her successes, relies in His chosen responsibility to provide His own sacrifice for us, so that we may be free to live in appreciation of that sacrifice, without the unbearable loads of taking on that once-and-for-all sacrifice again and anew. The reason it seems so difficult is not God’s plan to overwork our emotional remorse over each and every error, omission, and affront against His purity. It seems difficult because there is an alive enemy of humankind and God who twists His Word by twisting our word to get us to believe falsehood as if it is true.

   As a result, what is true is thought to be falsehood fantasy and people learn to believe a lie much easier than the truth is accepted. There are seven words of truth about satan, and those words are true about everyone who is following his deceptive ‘goodness’ that seems to be what God desires (even though each and every one of us is justified in Christ under His Authority). Those seven words are: “Satan lies to get what he wants.” He lies to keep people believing in worldly wisdom’s self-oriented consequential pride of submission to right ways over wrong ways, as if it comes from God.

   The devil comes as an angel of light because he was an angel of praise and glory. People are not the class of entity that angels are and naturally trust supernaturally mysterious meanings beyond their ability to observe through their natural senses. God is perfection in His Truth of being, and His ever continuing reality from that truth. People, as well as angels both steadfast to God’s Truth with some separate from His truth (demons), are not capable of self evident truth because they are not God and cannot be God.

   Since any awareness outside absolute Truth as known by God is only a reflection of His Truth, it is impossible for any person, especially when under demonic sway, to judge the good they believe in as from God as superior to the evil counterbalance to that good. So, it can be understood that judging evil as beneficial to give better appreciation of the good requires the good to be held in better esteem than the evil. But, when good is held in better esteem than the evil that gives ‘light’ to see good as the good it is, evil takes on a subversive superiority over good that implies evil works people’s attentions into goodness.

   God’s exclusive right of Creator to judge righteousness and rebellion falls into an assumed personal (and/or collectively social ‘group mentality’ church or government positions) right to judge self and others in ways where people are identified with what it is believed they have done. Consequently, through this false judgment, it is further judged what it is believed a person or people will do. This is why; ultimately, God will judge those who hold people bound by and into the wrong with which they are identified as themselves guilty of those very wrongs.

   Religions attempt to use God to obtain temporal worldly goals that are touted as eternal avenues of process to save one’s self awareness out from oblivion. And it ’works’ because people wish to be who they believe they are in their likes and dislikes forever. Forgotten, or yet to be consciously realized, is that most of who a person believes they are, in the truth of the goodness they desire to continue being in who they believe they are, is founded in their physical instinctual mortal creature’s reactionary responses to the earth’s environmental settings.

   Satan takes advantage of our naturally God given desires to trust in Him by confusing us into trusting anything that is not quite God’s designed ways to functionally trust Him. He delegates high ranking members of the hierarchy of evil spirits to control nations, regions, cities, tribes, people groups, neighborhoods, and any other significant social networks of human beings throughout the world. Their major assignment is to prevent God from being glorified in their respective territories – this done through directing the activities of lower ranking demons.

   This same order is echoed in human endeavors of religion, business, and government. While individual hatred/awe (resentfully devoted submission) toward oppressive organized authorities seems to be the required avenue of self preservation in education, training, and integrated social acceptance for successful determination, the organized structures of those authorities are subject to each person’s will in believing in the order of right and wrong established by those entities.

   The way this affects people’s personal lives is both as a result of the presence of diabolical entities, as well as being brought to fore by those same people in using their confused and subverted other-than-faith-in-God authority; that allows and inadvertently invites those spirits to inhabit the areas they do. The aims of the enemy of God, and therefore humankind, are not simply to control people’s minds through contrary behavior, but to get at their wills. He uses whatever channels are available to him to gain whatever control he can over the will.

   The hidden? focus of satan’s attempts at will control reside with a man’s will with a woman in marriage, a man and woman’s shared will unto God to manage their children, and the family’s will of respect for God’s authority in Christ to oversee their faith actions through choices made in day-to-day involvement with matters religious, matters of commerce, and matters of social responsibility. The direction of understanding proper conduct in these things comes in and through respect for God’s Word of promise to uphold people’s word of promise.

   Measuring one’s self and others by man’s standards is the same as allowing the influences and pressures of demoniacs to be the rule. The merciful grace of living in Christ, Who became the Standard for all, realizes His responsibility in accepting any person’s ‘good’ or ‘evil’ as not actually of them. Whether anyone accepts His Authority of Life as their own, each person has available that Life as long as they breathe the breath of air.

   Without an overall trust in God by collective social agreement to honor the privacy of God’s will to manage the various private lives of family rights for a man with his wife to choose, the doors of Christ’s Victory become closed to mortal living. At the core of all manipulations that invade another’s God given will of choosing the moments, are the decisions whether one wants or not to play God, or respect Him through faith in Christ for Who He is by appreciating that one’s self and others are also subject to Him.

   Take away the comfort props that appear to establish one’s unique ‘me’ and there is left no personal understanding what to choose over what to avoid. The only answer to not knowing if good is good or evil, or evil is evil or good, can only come directly from God. Religions have methods to draw structure for human leading through categorical patterns that give meaning to holding to social/cultural agreement for stability and safety by giving credence to the good that is not the good of God as the victor over evil that is as much of the good as it is of the evil of the knowledge of good and evil.

   The knowledge of good and evil is an animistic knowledge of the flesh, many times in the guise of spiritual reality that intentionally causes people to avoid God in His plan for accepting His Truth over that polarized evil by deceiving people into accepting false un-redemptive good as the redemptive good it tries to claim to be. Hold onto or take away, either way, good vs. evil’s religious props that support the good as from God and people will continue to fight wars, share rumors of wars, and be filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;

   being full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; being whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable and unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. This is why the thought to be unification of religions worldwide based in and on the shared behavior concerned Commandments of the ethical rules of laws (do not steal, etc.) will not bring peace but lead more quickly to mankind’s obliteration.

This is the sum of the things spoken above (Hebrews 8-10):

   We, each and every person upon the face of the earth, have a specifically personal Chief High Priest of Which no man or woman is able to warrant, without His indwelling presence, carrying the status of ‘priest’. That One is King and Lord over all kings and lords of ruler-ship that ever lived or will live. Some of those kings and lords followed and do follow His leading but most do not through their personal lust of the eyes and pride of life. Jesus Christ sits on His throne of Majesty of Absolute Truth in the heavens; having been sent among humankind for that purpose by the One and Only True God of Creation.

   He is Minister of the Sanctuary of the soul, and of the true personal heart of awareness of each person, which God Himself created, and not man. Every worldly high priest of any religion is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices unto God (though the ungodly nature of religious observances avoids, by its very human organizational system, His Truth): wherefore it is of necessity that this One Man have somewhat more to offer than a pleading mortal soul can conjure.

   If Christ, being King over all in His chosen responsibility through the Cross and Resurrection for all, were on earth as we are, He should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the laws of works of the knowledge of good and evil. Those priests of religion who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle, “for, See, says He, that thou make all things according to the pattern shown to thee in the mount.”

   But now has Christ obtained a more excellent Ministry, by how much also He is the mediator of a better Covenant, which was established upon better Promises. For if that first covenant (the covenant of faith through works) had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second (the covenant of works through faith). “For finding fault with them, He says, ‘Behold, the days come, says the Lord, when I will make a new Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

   Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in My covenant, and I regarded them not,’ says the Lord. ‘For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,’ says the Lord; ‘I will put My laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to Me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, “Know the Lord!”: for all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest.

   For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.’ In that He says, ‘A new covenant, He hath made the first old. Now that which decays and waxes old is ready to vanish away.”

   Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle made (an example of Christ’s covering grace of mercy); the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the showbread; which is called the sanctuary. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercy seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.

   Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The Holy Ghost this signifying (the unvarying reality of Truth over the errors of confusion), that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle (awareness through the knowledge of good and evil) was yet standing: Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices (representations of the Cross), that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.

   But Christ being come an High Priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

   And for this cause He is the mediator of the New Testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the First Testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator lives. Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.

   For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, saying, ‘This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you’. Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

   It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

   Nor yet that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest entered into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (he who is judged in Christ is joyously judged in righteousness):

   So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation. For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.

   But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when He came into the world, He said, “Sacrifice and offering Thou would not, but a body hast thou prepared Me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin Thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, ‘Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of Me,) to do Thy will, O God.’

   Above when He said, ‘Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin Thou would not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; Then said He, ‘Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God’; He takes away the first, that He may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

   But this Man, after He had offered One sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool. For by one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost (His Spirit of Truth of the Word) also is a witness to us: for after that He had said before, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says 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.”

   Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which He has consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh; And having an High Priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

   Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together as the manner of some is (A man together in faith with his wife, together in faith with his family, together in faith with his neighbors is the respective order of assembling); but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

   For if we sin willfully (forsaking our place of commitment with those whom we are promised by holding them to laws of works) after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. (This is where faithful intercessory prayer in marriage between a man and woman, and their shared togetherness in faithful intercessory prayer over their children under the vows of marriage finds redemption to circumvent a thought to be loss of merciful grace from God through Christ.)

   He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith He was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? (indentifying people with their errors and, therefore, indentifying them with adverse demoniac influences) For we know Him that has said, ‘Vengeance belongs unto Me, I will recompense, says the Lord.’ And again, ‘The Lord shall judge His people’. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

   But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; partly, whilst ye were made a gazing-stock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward.

   For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry. For He has said, ‘Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him.’ But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Romans chapter 10 

   Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

   For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)

   But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

   For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

   But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.

   But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me. But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

 

II Corinthians chapter 4

   Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

   But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

   For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

   We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

   Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

   So then death worketh in us, but life in you. We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

   For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

   While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
