God has great joy in keeping you from falling:.Jude 1:24 "Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy."

It is not believing that one is pure and holy, righteous and perfect that will eventually cause departure from the Creator's spiritual realm:.Hebrews 3:12 "Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.".It is a heart of unbelief that will take you away.

In believing, you have a part in persuading your heart. Without that, the Spirit of the Creator will lack major influence in life.

But what if you want to believe but just don't yet believe? What should you do? First, prove God exists and then learn about God. And while you're on that road, don't worry about doubts, because you have help:."I will believe for you until you can."....Bruno Gröning, the great healer from God of the 1940s & 1950s, passed on now, but as everyone else passed on, is alive and can be called on:.Hebrews 12:1 "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which does so easily beset us and let us run with patience the race that is set before us."

Paul was very concerned about what was going on regarding ways of thinking that threatened to alienate others from the loving influence of the Creator.

Some people back then Paul was aware of in the churches he went to, began to follow deadly spiritual teachings. These were about getting one's self right, apart from the Creator's plan of righteousness.imputed to them as a free gift:.Proverbs 20:9 "Who can say I have made my heart clean and I am now pure from my sin?"

By allowing themselves to become distracted from the house holding the ways of the Creator, they were moving in their minds from the truth of the gospel they had learned:.Hebrews 3:6,14 "But Christ as a son over his own house, whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end....For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end." Hebrews 10:35 "Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompence of reward."

When someone says he is not as close to God as he once was, you can be pretty sure which one moved!

Colossians 1:20,21 "And, having made peace.(why?).through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth.(physical things).or things in heaven.(things beyond detection by the 5 senses, wherein is the true reality). And you, that were sometime.(original 'in time past').alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked.(original Greek for 'wicked' is 'painful persuasions', things they had come to believe in error {because they were basically selfishly minded which cuts off the spirit's influencing of the soul, the result being they go astray from truth}, which were harming their relationship with the Creator and man, as well as causing their life to be hard).works, yet now has he reconciled."

Notice, the peace was made by Emmanuel.(all planned long before by the Father).and that all things have thus been reconciled and that Ephesians 2:2,3 adds more. It adds to the."sometimes alienated and enemies in your mind", that is, we walked according to dark side influence, demons that influenced the direction of mankind and that our nature when apart from Creator's influence was just so predisposed, as was Adam and Eve's at the beginning of mankind:.Genesis 3:1-6.

We grow up and become the specific persons that we now are. This resulting from what we have been exposed to in life, that is, the experiences we encountered and reacted to as best we knew how respond to. The external environment had its hand in molding us and we became just as much a part of this world with its sideways, off center thinking as everyone else, including Adam and Eve:.1Corinthians 15:22.

And overall, this satanically influenced environment that molded us was not a loving and caring one. Rather, it was that which was inherently selfish, a 'me first', a 'me the leader', a 'worship me I'm greater than you'.imbedded nature. It was the nature of the dark side. It was influence coming out of the consciousness of all mankind in the invisible, but this part was negative.

In order to know what 'works' please the Creator, one has to know what works wouldn't. And for that you need a standard. And the standard most used then is much the same as many use in error today, that of the ten commandments, tithing, etc., instead of the movement of the mind of God in a person, often referred to as the movement of air, that is, you just sense a movement in your mind as you would feel a movement from an unexpected gentle gust of air.(you know the air is there, just never thinking about its movement until it does), just a sudden awareness of something in one's mind, an awareness that alerts to something for consideration.

Creator-God moves in us as much as is possible. Why is that?

Religious works couldn't reconcile people to the Father. Christ had to do that. It was hard toil and effort to keep works that were not required and which couldn't reconcile one anyhow. What a waste of time due to ignorance of the grace of God. Only His blood makes a person holy, unblameable and unreproveable:.Colossians 1:22.

We now have been, thanks to Christ's work, presented holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight, if we continue in the faith grounded and settled and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel....." as Colossians 1:22 states.(*)

And sometimes to be 'not moved away', one has to move on:.Romans 16:17,18 "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you have learned and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Emmanuel the Christ, but their own belly and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.(Matthew 10:16)."

If sin is missing the mark and perfection is hitting the mark, which road are you headed on? And where does perfection lie? You are in perfection when you are in Christ.

Paul says that even the scriptures foretold the gospel of justification by faith.(belief in Emmanuel the Christ).and.faith alone:.Galatians 3:8 "And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel...."

Paul was always set to defend the gospel:.Philippians 1:17 "...I am set for the defence of the gospel." Philippians 3:2 "Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision." Titus 1:10 "For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers..."

Paul even wanted those who were perverting the true gospel cut off from influencing others; kick them out, in other words:.Galatians 5:12 "I would they were even cut off which trouble you."

Paul wrote Titus about the same thing and also had to write about it to those called by God in the ancient cities of Rome and Galatia.

It was then, as it is today, a widespread problem, caused mostly by confusion about grace and law:.Jeremiah 7:19 ".....Do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?" 1Corinthians 14:33 "For God is not the author of confusion.(well who is then?), but of peace..."
