is a makeup of so many other people that have had influence on us as we
continuing to grow by
means of life's experiences.
This subject is about having
experience with the good part of the
invisible world. What's
the bad part?
1:6 "If we say that we have fellowship.(or,
Him and walk in darkness.('dimness'
in the original Greek; like living as though we know not the truth or being
a lukewarm Christian),
we lie and do not the truth." John 15:7
"If you abide in me
and my words abide in you, you shall ask what
you will and it shall be done unto you."
Emmanuel came so that we
could share the unity He had with the Father:.Psalms
Having fellowship with Him.(praying,
studying, and meditating).and
caring for others is not walking in darkness and being
and actions eschewing
the light in God's word:.1Timothy
How do we walk in the
light? Well, if you have a relationship and don't think often about
the other person, don't care to spend time with the other, well then, it
can't be called a relationship. Job
This special oneness was
not there until Christ's death, burial and resurrection. It was not even
there amongst Emmanuel's disciples. It came later as a result of Christ
joining again with His Father in what we call heaven, the invisible realm,
now of all good.(why.now?.Revelation
14:20 "...I am in my Father and you in me and I in you." John
17:5 "And now, O Father, glorify you me with your own self with the
glory which I had with you before the world was." John
10:30 "I and my Father are one." John
14:28 "...I go unto the Father, for my Father is greater than I."
This special oneness came
with the Father and Christ sending the Holy Spirit.(John
15:26; Acts 2:1-4).and
because of this, we too are now part of the
family or can be. To be of the same mind means equals.
Yep! You're there too
and to live eternally:.1John
For us to abide
in Christ means to be in
and of the same mind
that Christ was in God. It even goes further than that, all the way to
Emmanuel was the Father; there was no separation, ever:.2John
1:9 "...he that abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father
and the Son." John 12:44,45 "Emmanuel
cried and said, He that believes on me, believes not on me, but on him
that sent me. And he that sees me sees him that sent me." John
8:58 "Emmanuel said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before
Abraham was, I am." John 12:49,50
"For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father which sent me, he gave
me a commandment, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know
that his commandment is life everlasting. Whatsoever I speak therefore,
even as the Father said unto me, so I speak." Matthew
11:27 "All things are delivered unto me of my Father and no man knows
the Son but the Father, neither knows any man the Father save the Son and
he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him." John
8:42 Emmanuel said unto them, If God were your Father, you would love
me, for I proceeded forth and came from.(word
not in original; original is 'of', that is, it was God in Christ).God;
neither came I of myself, but he sent me.(or
better understood 'I'm not the separate person from God I appear to be,
but I am He in this physical expression you see').
6:17 "But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit." Ephesians
1:10 "That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather
together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which
are on earth, even in him."
Note, this incredible energy
is in every part of the creation, every rock, every tree and everyone.
That's what sustains all the physical world and universe. But there's more
to it than that. The One we call God, this energy, is intelligent.(*).
God has the intelligent energy and with that decided to create more beings
out of it; somewhat similar to the effect of us able to create children.
Christ was in God because
was in Christ, showing the
connectivity to all things created by Him.(*).
This also shows the preeminence
of God over all things.(Colossians
1:18; John 10:30; 14:10;
5:18), God meaning here the Creator-Father
and Christ by His earlier name, the Creator-Word.
oneness extends to us.
the light is loving your
brother and walking in darkness is loving
him less than yourself.(the
translators here used the word 'hate', which in the original means to 'love
less by comparison', but it's not wise to compare each other, so just
10:12; 1Corinthians 2:13):.1John
2:6,9-11 "He that says he abides in him ought himself also so to walk,
even as he walked...He that says he is in the light and hates his brother
is in darkness even until now. He that loves his brother abides in the
light and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hates
his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness and knows not where he
goes, because that darkness has blinded his eyes."
Remember what Emmanuel said
22:36-40 "Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Emmanuel
said unto him, Love the Lord thy God with all your heart.(emotions).and
with all your soul.(entire
being's purpose in life).and
with all your mind.(how
you allow your subconscious to be programmed to respond).
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it,
Love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the
law and the prophets.".Emmanuel
didn't just talk about it like it was a concept
He was the epitome
1:4,9 "In him was life and the life was the light of men. ...That was
the true Light, which lights every man that comes into the world." John
8:12 "Then spake Emmanuel again unto them, saying, I am the light of
the world. He that follows me walks not in darkness, but has the light
John 12:46 "I am come a
light into the world, that whosoever believes on me does not abide in darkness."
the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation
wherewith you are called." Psalms
97:11 "Light is sown for the righteous
and gladness for the upright in heart."
When we're sure we are OK,
or righteous, in our Creator's eyes.(not
because we may still have bad things in
our lives), we'll have the light
that lights up the world:.Matthew
5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill
cannot be hid." John 1:4,5 "In him
was life and the life was the light of men." John
3:21 "But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may
be made manifest that they are wrought in God." Ephesians
5:8 "For you were sometimes darkness, but now are you light in the
Lord. Walk as children of light." How?
5:5 "You are all the children of light and the children of the day.
We are not of the night, nor of darkness." 1Peter
2:9 "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,
a peculiar people, that you should show forth the praises of him who has
called you out of darkness into his marvelous light."
1:5,7 "This then is the message which we have heard of him and declare
unto you, that God is light and in him is no
at all...But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship
one with another and the
blood of Emmanuel the Christ his Son cleanses.(1John
1:7) us from all sin.".Old
Testament practices foreshadowed
the blood of Emmanuel as in the New Testament:.Hebrews
3:8-15 "Now he that plants and he that waters are one and every man
receives his own reward according to his own
labour. For we are labourers together with God. You are God's husbandry,
you are God's building. According to the grace of God which is given unto
me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation and another builds
thereon. But let every man take heed how
he builds thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that
is laid, which is Emmanuel the Christ. Now if any man build
upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble,
every man's work shall be made manifest, for the day declares it,
because it is revealed by fire and the fire
'examine as to its authenticity').every
man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he has built
thereupon, he receives a reward. If any man's
work is burned, he suffers loss, but he himself is saved by
The 'day' here being talked
above and in
the day many believe.(Hebrews
will return from this invisible realm
many people call heaven, raise the dead, hold the final judgment and begin
the physical kingdom of God on Earth:.Matthew
24:36 "But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of
heaven, but my Father only." 1Thessalonians
5:2,4 "For yourselves know perfectly that the
day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night...But you, brethren,
are not in darkness,
that that day should overtake you as a thief.".(the
