Q u e s t i o n s

-What about the Holy Spirit and "speaking or praying in tongues"? 

-What does it mean to be."after the Spirit".and."in the spirit"?.Romans 8:1. Also 1Peter 4:6; Luke 1:17; Acts 18:25; Romans 8:9; Galatians 5:16,25; Ephesians 4:23; Philippians 3:3.

The spirit is the heart of an individual:.Romans 2:29. Being."in the Spirit".is having Christ in you, which provides for an awakened person, because through the person's spirit, he is forever.(Hebrews 13:5 "...for he said, I will never leave you nor forsake you.").then connected to the Father's creation of the Soul, thus becoming a member of the family, evidenced by his attention to the things of a higher consciousness:.Romans 8:9; 2Corinthians 3:3. Understand what 'Christ' is. One is then living 'in His name'. That's how to know you are in God and God in you:.1John 2:5.

When you are sure Christ is in you, you are sure that you are righteous:.Romans 10:10,11. You then live this life with that sureness, that confidence base. You live out your life more from within, the internal, where He abides, than from getting your information for existing from externals, the experiences that you pass through as you grow older.

Few if any of us ever see when our prime of life is. You may have gone through it and may still be expecting it to come. In this it's good to talk to older people; ask them if they think that you are in your prime time of life and if you are, make the most of it. How? Ask the Creator. He'll guide you. Yes He will!

This being sure whether or not, you are indeed having Christ dwell in you, is most important, and with a checkpoint continually about you, you can always be sure:.1John 3:16-24 "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso has this world's good and sees.(original denotes {indicates}, 'of one who looks at a thing with interest and for a purpose'; is aware of).his brother have need and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwells the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth and shall assure our hearts before him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Emmanuel the Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. And he that keeps his commandments.(no plural in original, and fits better with this verse anyhow; and what was that commandment).dwells in him and he in him. And hereby we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit which he has given us."

Paul listened strongly to his heart, knowing that Christ is there:.Acts 18:5; 19:21; 20:22. Apollos was ferventin the Spirit:.Acts 18:25

Emmanuel groaned in His Spirit or, in His heart, where the Spirit of the Father was:.John 11:33

Walking "in the Spirit" is walking in love:.Galatians 5:14,16. The word 'walk' in this verse means these things, 'to go about your concerns with'.(that is, to know the Holy Spirit is right there with you, in you), 'to use', 'to make use of opportunities'. 

The spiritual things of life lead one.progressively.(*).into eternal things, the invisible beyond the physical.

Give attention to the Infinite Presence.(can't do this from the ego level, so if you can, you'll know you are moving away from the ego level of low consciousness).in you.(1John 2:27).by prayer, meditation, Bible study, thinking of what you are learning and awareness of His presence in you as you live your daily life in truth as best you comprehend how to. Develop the unique expression that is only you.

When you seek for opportunities to express the wonderful love the Creator has placed within you, you are, as the Holy Bible calls it 'walking in the Spirit' and this means you have the same nature as the family of Creators: Romans 8:1,4; Galatians 5:16,25.

Walking in the Spirit comes from knowing that you are righteous. How can you be anything else if the holy nature of the God family is in you? This is referred to in the Holy Bible as Christ being in you and you 'being in Christ'. It simply means you have the same nature, thanks to what those in the God family have done. This is how we walk worthy of the Lord:.Colossians 1:10.

The Creator is joined to you:.1Corinthians 6:17. His nature can be accepted by us to become our nature in spirit, soul and body. His basic nature is love. Start loving and God is awakened within you. It's that simple.

From the fine book.The Rest of the Gospel; When the Partial Gospel Has Worn You Out.by Dan Stone and Greg Smith."You can't even talk without a body...The total you is involved...God says to us "I'm going to live in you and other people are going to see you, but you know it's Me." What this tells us is that we can stop seeing ourselves as a liability. We can cease thinking that something more needs to happen to us spiritually before we can be an asset to God. If we keep focusing upon ourselves externally, we'll keep thinking 'He can't use me yet'.".If we focus internally in meditation we are in God.

We often castigate ourselves for our humanity, the frailties we know we still have, feeling that God cannot or will not 'use us', has left off interest in us, will not ever have His perfect nature be in us and that He just could not bother to have anything to do with us, etc., especially as long as we are so imperfect. Well, cheer up!

We have a part in our problems.

So silly is not realizing this: The Creator can remove any problem from any of us at any time He so determines or to any degree of relief that He determines:.1Corinthians 10:13; 1Thessalonians 2:4. But they are there for a reason and part of it is so that we learn to think as God does, in a higher consciousness. That's what we are here to learn, so we're ready for the next step:.1Corinthians 2:9.

If you didn't have problems at the ego level you would never aspire to the higher consciousness level. And there is a key for getting God to act. You are the Infinite One in expression. If you have problems, you are left with them so that you can do something about them.(do what about them?). And another reason why we are left with them? What can you do? What else can you do?

With this knowledge you have every reason to apply it for your betterment:.1Thessalonians 5:18; Psalms 100:4. Problems are always leading to a greater you, urging you to get in touch with your Soul within, showing you that you are not in sync with it. 

To solve any problem, there are usually three main questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, whom could I ask?

The real problem is usually two or three questions deep and can't be solved from the same level that created it. If you want to go after someone's problem, be aware that most people aren't going to reveal what the real problem is after the first question.

Neil Armstrong once said."You only have to solve two problems when going to the moon: first, how to get there and second, how to get back. The key is don't leave until you have solved both problems."

Never attack a problem without also presenting a solution.

"The best place to solve a problem is on paper."....Jim Rohn. JimRohn.com

Know that "the old man" is crucified and no longer serving sin.(missing the mark, both of love for yourself and others).and you now focus on that which is inside of you.(Christ).and the new state of your being that He made possible:.Romans 6:6

One renews the spirit of his mind by changing his thinking: Ephesians 4:23. The Creator forces no one to change his thinking, but he can give one guidance as to how and cause circumstances to make one stop dead and turn around in his thinking, as what happened to Paul. Being stubborn means having to learn the hard way.

Problems automatically come because of the level of mind we are in by default. They come to alert us to a better way. It's our decision to try the better way to find out if it is actually so:.Acts 17:11.

Repentance means a change in thinking, a change of mind, to come to see things differently, meaning to change; mind first and life follows. For example, in Matthew 21:32 the original word for 'repented' means 'caring', 'care about', 'take care', that is, if one cares about himself or herself they are awakening to something beyond what their life has been up to now.

Changing your mind changes your life:.Acts 26:20 "...turn to God and do works meet for repentance." 2Peter 3:9 "The Lord is...not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."

Change from what? And to what? And for what?.Luke 13:2-9. And why don't people change and if no change occurs, even after many promptings to one's mind that come daily, then what? Psalms 55:19 "God shall hear and afflict them...because they have no changes.(Jeremiah 8:6), therefore they fear.(means 'respect', 'care for').not God." 

Repentance is a first part of the stage of ongoing spiritual growth. It is a result of the Creator having 'called' you to know the ways of love, which is what God is, love:.1John 4:7-16; 2Timothy 2:25. When one knows this they have a relationship with Him, thanks to what Christ made possible by what He came to Earth to do in the body of Emmanuel. Repentance is part of the conversion process from ordinary consciousness to a higher consciousness.

Repentance is not a decision you make. Repentance is a gift from the Creator to all of us now:.Acts 5:31. One doesn't keep using the gift if it's no longer necessary:.Hebrews 6:1. There is a time to move on.

It is a result of a decision the Creator has made in your favor. Your decision hopefully would be that of acceptance of God's gift of repentance, bringing yourself in contact, by means of your spirit, with the part of the Soul He has created that is just for you. The way has now been opened for you, to accept it, but the Creator never overrides anyone. 

There is a way to keep the energy flowing to you from this connection.

How we need to change is to what we believe God thinks of us, which is much greater than how we generally think of ourselves. Repentance is more than that of having done wrong and being sorry for it. Being sorry for one's errors is only the beginning point..Matthew Henry's Commentary:."God's promises to us are more powerful and effective for mortifying sin.(what is sin?), than our promises to God."
