We are to present our mortal bodies as a LIVING sacrifice…..not a dying one as preached by many who deny that Jesus IS COMING in our mortal flesh. Jesus IS RISEN. He IS ALIVE NOW and not dead and so we are to be ALIVE NOW. Romans 12:1-2 KJV (1) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Let us not be conformed to this decaying world whose pursuits do nothing to save our mortal flesh. But we are to be transformed (transfigured into His image) by the renewing of our minds so that we may PROVE to this world what it means to DO His good, acceptable and perfect will. The world and its lusts are actively passing away for NO FLESH is being saved. They are all perishing “under the sun” of God’s wrath. But he that DOES the will of God ABIDES to the age. (2) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Love not the world neither the things that are in the world…..for all of it is passing away NOW. This is a present thing. Everyone who is conformed to this world’s ways are decaying away to the grave in their mortal flesh as they go about their business. NO FLESH is being saved for the life of Jesus is not being made manifest in their mortal flesh giving them life NOW. 1 John 2:15-19 KJV (15) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (16) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. But he that DOES the will of God ABIDES “for ever”….unto the coming age…because he will have the life of Jesus being made manifest in his mortal flesh (having “eternal life” in the here and now). (17) And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Let us not listen to the many antichrists who preach we have to physically die when Jesus IS ALIVE now and so we are to have His life NOW and have it more abundantly. The antichrists are being made manifest by their dying…their flesh is actively perishing from off this earth. IF they were of us, no doubt they would have CONTINUED with us. They would still be living in the here and now and not dying in their mortal flesh. (18) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. (19) They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. Jesus did not pray that we should be TAKEN OUT of this world but that we should be kept from the evil of this world that is actively perishing away in its lusts. John 17:15-18 KJV (15) I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. (16) They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. (17) Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. (18) As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. We are to show forth the GLORY of the Father by having the life of Jesus being made manifest in our mortal flesh so that this world can see what it means to DO His will. When His life appears in our mortal flesh, we appear with Him in glory so that the world may see and glorify the Father in heaven. John 17:1-5 KJV (1) These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: The Son has been given power over ALL FLESH so that He should give eternal life to as many as has been given Him. (2) As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. What is “life eternal”? To know the only true God and Jesus Christ. How do we know God? By the keeping of His commandments do we show we know Him. (3) And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. (4) I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. We are to partake the glory of the Son by having His life made manifest in our mortal flesh. the world came alongside us and decayed us by us becoming conformed to it. (5) And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. He redeems our life from the destruction of the flesh caused by sin. He forgives us of all our iniquities. Our youth shall be RENEWED like the eagle’s….. Psalms 103:1-6 KJV (1) A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. (2) Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: (3) Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; (4) Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; (5) Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. (6) The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. This is eternal life…to know God….and knowing God is to keep His commandments. 1 John 2:3-11 KJV (3) And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. (4) He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. (5) But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. (6) He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. (7) Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. (8) Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. (9) He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. (10) He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. (11) But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. Let us be born from above where our ears hear the Word of Truth. James 1:18-26 KJV (18) Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. When we hear His voice today, we are to be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath. (19) Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: (20) For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. (21) Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. Let us be DOERS of the Word and not hearers only. Let us hear His voice and not be contentious and reject what we hear because it does not conform to what religious-sounding men have been preaching for many years. Let us not reject our own mercy. (22) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. A man who is a hearer of the Word only and not a DOER is like a man beholding his natural face in a mirror. When he goes off on his way away from keeping the Word (the Saying: to have love for one another), then he immediately forgets what manner of man he was. If we sow after the flesh (envy, strife and hatred of one another), then of the mortal flesh do we reap decay. We literally disfigure our mortal face with “age”. (23) For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: (24) For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But if we look in the perfect LAW of liberty and CONTINUE therein and not be forgetful hearer but a DOER of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. We are to be transformed into His image...inside and out. (25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. (26) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. What “blessing” are we to be blessed with? LIFE FOR EVERMORE! Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity. This is the ANOINTING that the antichrists do not want us to keep in the Jesus. they want us to forsake the assembling of ourselves in the Word of Truth....having brotherly love for each other....being compassionate for each other....getting along with each other. There is no profit for the antichrists if we all get along in Him. Psalms 133:1-3 KJV (1) A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (2) It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; (3) As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. How good and how pleasant it is for us to have compassion for each other. We are to dwell with each other in UNITY…..being of ONE MIND. We are to have love for one another as brothers (the perfect LAW of liberty). For it is there the LORD has commanded the blessing: LIFE for evermore. We shall inherit the blessing of LIFE NOW for he that loves life and will want to see good days are to refrain their tongues from evil and their lips from speaking deceit…..handling the Word of God deceitfully for unjust gain. 1 Peter 3:8-11 KJV (8) Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: We are to remember and DO this so that we may inherit the “blessing”….LIFE FOR EVERMORE (unto the age) in this earth…in the here and now. (9) Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. (10) For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: (11) Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. We are to hear His voice and come forth from the “graves” of religious-sounding men who have deceived and captured our hearts with their good sounding words and fair speeches and DO GOOD towards what we hear the Spirit saying unto the standing up of LIFE NOW. John 5:22-30 KJV (22) For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: (23) That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. We are to pass from death unto LIFE NOW by hearing and DOING His Word….believing on Him that sent the Son. Believing is DOING His Word to have love for one another. We ALREADY know how to love. We are to hear and DO GOOD towards the people sent by Him to preach His words of life and spirit. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren who are SENT by Him to preach to our ears His words. He that loves not his brother abides in death. (24) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (25) Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. (26) For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; (27) And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. We are to hear His voice and come forth from the “graves” of men who have brought us into their church bondage. They that DO GOOD are to stand up into eternal life now. (28) Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, (29) And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. Those who speak evil of what they hear and of those who are SENT by Him to speak His words are judged. As He hears, He judges. (30) I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. According to His mercy does He save us by the washing of REGENERATION and the renewing of the Holy Spirit and we are made heirs according to the HOPE of “eternal life”…in the here and now. Titus 3:1-11 KJV (1) Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, (2) To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. (3) For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. (4) But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, (5) Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; (6) Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; (7) That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
