...continued from Questions, Page 1.What about faith being made perfect by works?

...The Old Testament Mosaic Law worked wrath:.Romans 4:15; Hebrews 3:7-10. Because of Romans 4:15, Christ had to do this:.Galatians 3:13. And because of that, this:.1Thessalonians 5:9; 1:10; Romans 5:9. And because of those, this:.1Thessalonians 5:11.

The wrath of the Creator is only for the children of disobedience, which includes those allowing others to place them into bondage without being forced into it:.Ephesians 5:6 "Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.".Romans 9:22,23.

Like humans, some children need to be dealt with a little more sternly than others. Others may have severe trials to bring out even greater character qualities to enable them to receive a high position in God's coming kingdom.(government).on Earth:.Colossians 3:6. God's wrath however, has a good purpose for those who cannot bring themselves into line.

We were once under His wrath too:.Ephesians 2:3;.John 3:36 "He that believes on the Son has everlasting life and he that believes not the Son sees no life.(*); but the wrath.(original Greek is 'to deeply desire; be indignant, accompanied with intent to cause change'; in other words God deeply wants a relationship with each of us in His creation, and He's extremely concerned when He sees us unhappy and even hurting ourselves when He has provided a great future for all who stop rejecting {Romans 1:18} what the death and resurrection of His Son made possible).of God abides on him." Psalms 106:36-45; Ephesians 5:1-8; Colossians 3:1-6; Revelation 14:10. It is through faith that a person has life:.Romans 1:17 "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith."

It is not the wrath of the Creator that 'wakes people up'.(examples in Emmanuel's time:.John 7:7).and brings them into His family of spiritual beings, but rather the Creator's goodness towards people:.Romans 2:4;.Ephesians 5:9 "For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth." Psalms 52:1 "...the goodness of God endures continually.".1Corinthians 2:9; Deuteronomy 32:4. God is good and is with the good:.1Chronicles 22:11,12; 2Chronicles 19:11.

"People come and say 'Mr. Groening, prove that to us, then I'll believe'.(*). I'm not in need of the good, because I own it. But, you need it. And I should prove it to you?"....Bruno Gröning.

Bruno Groening here has his mind on everyone's individual responsibility to convince themselves:.1Thessalonians 5:21.

Ok, but what is good? Good is when there is nothing unwanted going on. It's good to get well. It's good when you do good: Psalms 82:2-4. It's good when your life is aligned with God:.John 10:10. Then, it's good for you and for others:.Romans 13:10 "Love works no ill to his neighbor therefore love is the fulfilling of the law."

Here's why you can trust that only good happens to you:.Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Wrath or the Creator taking a severe hand in your life.(Romans 9:22).is designed to get you to stop that which will hurt you.(why evils increase).and get you thinking about some things as the Creator thinks about them. Then you will come to see the goodness of Him and of life, everywhere:1Thessalonians 5:18. To be renewed, we need to focus on good things:.Psalms 103:5.

It was the same all throughout the Old Testament:.Jeremiah 18:10. The Old Testament is a history lesson for us all.

It is because of the hard hearts of some that they expect God's wrath:.Romans 2:5.

But now we are delivered from sin thanks to Christ abolishing the law and this wrath of God has dissipated through believing in Emmanuel the Christ and having received the gift of salvation:.Romans 5:17. But first, you've got to prove to your heart God exists, that God is real.

Thanks to the gift of faith.(Ephesians 2:8), we are to proceed with vigor in doing good works to gain the highest reward, working as best we can to use as much of Christ's spiritual nature as we have been able to bring forth:.Ephesians 2:10; Ephesians 4:7; Romans 12:3; Philippians 3:9

Doing good increases the fruits of your righteousness.(the righteousness of Christ that you now have), but doesn't increase your righteousness:.John 15:4,5. The work of righteousness was performed/finished in Christ and given to you as a gift -again, Romans 5:17

So we do good things. We give not to be blessed, as is the case with those who believe in required giving, as tithing is. We give because we are blessed. If you haven't been really blessed yet, don't give, or at least not too much. Giving is always good for you.

We pray because.we have a relationship with the Father, not because we are trying to gain His fellowship. We do good things because we are right with the Creator, not trying to get right with God. 

One can only be right with the Creator through belief in Emmanuel the Christ:.John 6:47; 7:38; 11:25; 12:44; 14:12; 1John 5:10. Belief is righteousness, as was the case with Rahab, the harlot. 

We are all the workmanship of He whom the Father has given responsibility to:.Ephesians 2:10. One thing He is working out of us is dead works:.Hebrews 9:14. Notice it doesn't say 'evil' works, as all sin has been looked after and no longer counts. But dead works are works that one's conscience should be purged from and those works are the works of the ego, which include the mindset, the attitude, that operates as no spiritual works needed till I'm asked.

Would these be the things that make one happy and free, or the things that make one feel guilty? The law made one feel guilty:.Romans 3:19. Some weekly church 'goers' feel guilty. What are they being taught?

-James 2:24.seems to indicate that works are needed to be saved.

Yep! It does seem to say that and so does verse 25.
