Faith is the main ingredient in God’s Spirit and Soul Food recipe. Like the reborn human spirit, the condition of the human soul also must be marked by total trust (faith) in God’s Faithfulness.
No matter how anybody tries to spin God’s Divine Truth, Christ Jesus has been, is, and always will be the ONLY “…Road, also the Truth, also the Life” (John 14:6a, MSG). In other words, there definitely will not be anybody, who didn’t come through Christ, standing in Heaven. There also won’t be anyone, who didn’t come through Christ, in Heaven looking upon, worshipping, and fellowshipping with Father God. Selah (pause and calmly think about that) . . . .
This blog entry is a celebration of life—the life of my cousin, Harding (Butch) Wade. Butch went home to be with the Lord on November 12, 2014.
Because we have liberty in Christ Jesus, which delivers us from any and all of the trappings that come with every kind of religious ceremony and superstition, we also never should allow ourselves to become a slave to either our day-to-day cares or the storms of life. Indeed, there is nothing that should hinder the freedom we have to live and move and have our being in Christ Jesus.
Just like the first-century disciples/believers had to receive the Holy Spirit’s sanctifying power before they could be mighty witnesses for Christ Jesus—before they could begin their mission of finishing what He had begun, which is the Great Commission (cf. Acts 1:8; see also Matthew 28:16-20)—we today also must receive the Lord’s prayed for sanctification. This Holy Spirit-assigned process is the necessary infilling (Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues) that will guarantee we eventually will become Christlike and then, like Him, will be raptured off of this Earth.
