29 In this episode I attempt to pull the last 6 or 7 episodes together.
In episode 25 I talk about the Gospel, Good News, or the Salvation message, and if you haven't listened to that episode or if you are not confident about salvation that would be a great episode for you.
Jesus was asked which is the greatest commandment?
Teacher which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."
I talk about if you want “Cliff Notes” on the Bible “Love God and love people.”
The scripture I use in this episode is in
giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
I didn't read verses 19 and 20 on this episode but I think it goes well with what I taught.
For it plays the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
It is incredible how God pulled all of the gospel message together. Satan comes to divide us and God tries to unite us back to Himself.
When you read your Bible I want you to be able to see God as the perfect Father and God is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, Love never fails.
The fruit of the Spirit is found in Galatians 5:22,23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
God wants you to read God's word and know it's true. God wants you to read the word of God the same way Abraham did not "waver" at the promise.
Romans 4:20,21 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He promised He was also able to perform.
We need to use the same faith when we read the word of God and when our body and spirit man are fighting over our soul. This is what I used to "heal" my toothache and it's what is available to each one of us every day.
