Life here is
a stage on the Earth and is for
opportunity to make
decisions that are good for us and others, one being that of moving
from the low consciousness selfish ego level of life which produces all
life's problems and into a higher
realm of living. But do we really 'make a decision for Christ'. Is
that even valid?
The ego level is the 'missing
the mark' level, the level the.Bible.calls
sin or that which increasingly and ultimately provides heartaches in life
for all affected, for all not yet awakened to the
truth about it. Sin counts for nothing good, even though it's enticing
as it was to Paul:.Romans
In this era
which is now.(2Corinthians
6:2), He nullified
sin's effect by showing us a hopeful and better way.(*).
He did this by making possible.(2Timothy
forgiveness as was not widely known until He brought it:.Ephesians
1:7. When one is in this forgiveness, sin no
longer counts and is no longer a factor in life.
Forgiveness was known among
the Old Testament that had the spirit of God, but the forgiveness that
was available for most back then only consisted of a covering.(*),
a covering because it was important for them to write the main lesson of
that being, evil comes from the ordinary
consciousness mankind comes here with and good is there when one is
to and aligned with the consciousness the Creator has.
One of the reasons Christ
came to Earth in the human being of one we call Emmanuel, is to show us
higher and better way of living, one that would ensure we would always
be functioning, even after death.(there
is no time in eternity).
This better way was made possible by what He came to do and did accomplish:.John
4:34; 5:36; 17:4;
What was decided in the
world of intelligent energy we call spirit, is a fait
accompli right from the start.
So, all sin for all time
has been looked
2:14 "Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all
iniquity and purify unto himself a peculiar people...".If
it wasn't for the Creator we call God doing what He did in the personage
of the human Emmanuel, we would
all have not been necessary thousands of years ago:.Romans
ego is the breeding ground for all iniquity. Christ, by showing us
a better way, made a contrast available for choice for those
coming to realize what has caused their lives such havoc.
We are responsible for our
decisions. We become what our decisions determine:.Galatians
6:5,6 "For every man shall bear his own burden." Galatians
6:7,8 "Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked. For whatsoever
a man sows, that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh reaps
corruption, but he that sows to the Spirit.(has
his mind on spiritual things).reaps
life everlasting." Jeremiah 17:10
"I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according
to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings."
We are here to learn.(how?).the
ways of selfishness, greed, duplicity,
mischief and the lying ways people use to 'cover their ass', do not ultimately
work; that is, they actually circumvent
good things from being consistently around and in our lives. This
is why it is the way that it is.
Decision is the tool for
change. The desire to make some different decisions come from your feelings.
Think about it - decisions come from a heartfelt sureness that the direction
of the decision will make you feel good, or an aversion.
Some decision considerations
will enable you to have the spirit, enabling eternality
now. All the folloowing can be summed up in one word, love. Learn about
Decision considerations all
based on love are:.1)
and to learn wisdom:.Psalms
90:12 "So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts
it says wisdom, not greed:.Philippians
4:11 "...I have learned in whatsoever state
I am, therewith
to be content." Hebrews 13:5 "...be
content with such things as you have.(count
your blessings)..." 1Timothy
6:8 "And having food and raiment let us be therewith content." Luke
21:34 "And take heed
to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with...cares
of this life..."
Some persons make decisions
in a haphazard.(not
and this can bring many heartaches
into life. Be wise. Make decisions that bring out more
of God's support in life for you.
made decisions based on his own feelings:.1Corinthians
Life brings many circumstances
which require one to decide this or that and to
learn to wisely deal with all kinds of situations and different
attitudes people may have. But make
decisions in wisdom.
What we experience daily,
see with the eyes, touch, hear, smell and taste, all provide thoughts with
which to deal with. We learn.
We can decide to accept,
reject or 'put them on the shelf' for a while. And as we grow from a child,
our decisions form our lives.(see
'Children', see 'following

doing what's best overall for you.
