DON'T THINK !!! Most people don't when it comes to looking at the New Covenant and the Old Covenant. The Old Covenant was an aggregation of 613 specific laws to govern and rule a nation== the children of Israel. It Worked!! Somewhat. Israel never could have been accused of keeping the law in its purpose and entirety. But , God is merciful and He loved Israel and delivered them anyway. So the Old Covenant of dos and dont's, obey and keep and observe was really a "religion " of control. A religion of performance. Keep and do this and I will bless you, God said. Don't keep and don't do these things and curses will befall you.( Deut.28 and Lev.26). All religions of the world since Adam have had this formulae. But.........With Jesus came a new and different covenant . Not like the first one AT ALL.!!!!!!

The New Covenant is based on the Spirit. There are NO laws to be expressly kept. None that are articulated as to "You must do this or that". No 'thou shalt do this or thou shalt not do that. No keep this or keep that. There are no proscriptions or requirements under the New Covenant. NONE. Check out your New Testament. NONE.

The motivating factor under the New Covenant is our being led and guided by the Holy Spirit. It leads, Guides, inspires, and directs toward the truth that is in Jesus.

There simply are NO rules, regulations, statutes, laws, requirements, dictates, or any thing else required of Christians in this New Covenant period of time to be done by anyone. We simply worship in Spirit and in Truth believing WHO we are in Jesus.

Why are there no great lengths of verbiage of Jesus or Paul in their writings to point out to all of us 'REQUIREMENTS' for all of us to measure up to in order to receive the blessings of the New Covenant? Reason: THERE ARE NONE. The New Covenant is NOT LIKE the OLD. Different entirely. Simply No Laws. Can you see that?

The New Covenant is a Gift of God to Humanity in Jesus. It declares that Jesus loved us before we were ever born. Before the foundation or creation of the world. Eph. 1:3-14. We are God's Children and Adopted from before creation. Included in the very Life of God. Made so by Jesus' life, death, resurrection, and Ascension carrying all of us to the Father's right hand. Eph. 2:6. Wow.

Now. One MUST believe this in order for him or her to 'experience' all of these wonderful blessings Jesus has to offer in His Life forever.

Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief. Please.

Sad. Sad. Sad. That is the only word I can use to describe what some people think of a loving Heavenly Father. Our Daddy in Heaven. What imbecilic theological thinking some have. Do you really think God chose some originally to be God Damned to Hell forever and others to be saved in His Son, Jesus Christ???? Well, some churches' theology teaches that very thing. That thinking comes from our dear friend of philosophy, Plato, from the 4th Century B.C. Why haven't we been told these things before? I can not answer that. But, now is the time to "tell the truth".

Number ONE. There is NO such thing as as ever burning, torturing and punishing "hell fire" for anyone. God NEVER intended that to be the case. He did intend to have a human family live with Him forever in His Triune existence. Jesus came for that very purpose to connect humanity to the Triune God to make this eternal life for everyone a reality.

In Ephesians 1:3-14, we see God's ORIGINAL purpose in creating man in the first place. He WANTS, He loves us , He likes us, and He wants to live forever with us in our HUMANITY.

Plato's "hell" was never preached in the early Christian church for the first 500 years of the church! St. Augustine put that philosophy into to Christian Church in the 5th Century A.D. to help "keep people " on the straight and narrow. To keep them obedient. No sex. No adultery. No drinking too much. No nothing when it came to sin. Did it work? Of course not. And Christians have lived under guilt, shame and the lack of assurance of salvation in Jesus ever since.

God chose ALL of us humans in Jesus Christ before the foundation of the world to live with Him forever and to be Holy In Jesus by His declaration. ( Eph. 1:3-14).

All humans are the "ELECT" of God. We were chosen and elected to be His children before the cosmos was ever created. (Eph.1:3-14---again.)

Some , however, may simply choose NOT to believe this truth. And, they will continue in suffering and perishing until they come around and accept and believe what Jesus did to them, for them , in them and through them. When they do, they will begin to experience the Abundant life Jesus brought now and forever. Jn.10:10.

God never did nor ever will "damn" anyone to eternal suffering. Lakes of fire, wandering in darkness , weeping and gnashing of teeth are METAPHORS describing those who refuse to believe WHO they are in the life of God made possible by the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Self condemnation. Self damnation. Self responsibility is and will be the order of the day for them unless and until they change their minds in repentance. ( Gk.'Metanoia'---'change one's mind'). Hopefully they will.

The Good News is STILL the Good News. For ALL.

In the 1992 movie, A FEW GOOD MEN, Col.Nathan Jessup makes the statement to the young lieutenant , Tom Cruze's character, "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH"! This statement is so true for so many who profess Christianity believing the false Dualism, Deism, and separation philosophy Western Christian Theology teaches.
Furthermore, Plato's invention of an ever burning, torturing, punishing, "hell fire" also permeates the GOOD NEWS taught from most pulpits in Christendom today. I could write this blog and NOT tell you about the truth of Plato's Hell Fire, Dante's Inferno, and St. Augustine's adoption of these falsities into the Catholic Church in the 5th century. I could just point you to the historical writings of church historians and the Internet and you could find out for yourself. But, maybe then again, " YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH" , as Col Jessup said.

Well, shoot, I'll just tell you a few truths and you can see if you can handle them or not and be advised there are many others as well.

God LOVES you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
There is no ever burning and torturing "hell fire" of torment !!!
Lazarus and the rich man is NOT about Gehenna fire at all.
The Book of Revalation is about Jesus Christ and is totally symbolic.
Linear time line prophetic dispensationalism is totally FALSE.
God chose you and adopted you in Christ before the foundation of the world. (Eph.1).
Man is not and can NOT be separated from God....Ever !!!
All humanity live and move and have their being (life/existence) in Christ.(Acts 17).
Jesus UNDID what Adam did to humanity.
The entire Cosmos is reconciled and saved in Jesus Christ. ( Col 1)
You will live with God forever. Catch...You must believe it to experience it.

Had enough????? Just remember, ostriches bury their heads in the sand !!!

More is on my web site at: www.newlifewcg.org

God bless all of you as you see the Truth you CAN Handle.

Love in Christ Jesus,

The devil's lie from the very beginning is that you are not worthy, not good enough, can't become good enough, aren't ever going to make the grade, you are separated from God and you have to do everything in your power to get to God and make Him like you and save you. "You are NOT", is his battle cry.

Satan's very religions from the very beginning have said if you are bad, evil, don't measure up, sinful, or otherwise unfit,then you will not gain the afterlife of happiness and joy. All based on YOU and what YOU do or don't do. Basically every religion the world has ever known has had this basic foundational premise from Zoroastrianism forward.

This Dualism points directly to man and HIS efforts to gain the "happy hunting ground' or afterlife of bliss. But these lies will not get man there from here.
Man is temporal and physical. Man dies and that is it. Unless there is a great purpose and plan of God in place from before the foundation of the world. ( Eph.1:3-14). And that plan involving the very Son of God, Jesus Christ, IS in place.

The Great Triune God NEVER intended for the salvation process and involvement of His creation into His life to be a challenge. Not a possibility. Not a contest. Not a game. He intended it to be a FACT. A Declaration of fact of what it is that He has done from the very beginning. Like the old WWII poster, "He Wants You !" And He does and has from before the foundation of the world. We are His baby. We are His children. We are His project. We are his pottery. We are His workmanship. We are HIS.

God loves us and wants with ALL HIS HEART to live with all of us FOREVER. And in Jesus has made this not only a possibility but a reality. Jesus did it all. Jesus paid it all. This good news is really , "GOOD NEWS" , for everyone.

Greek philosophy says if you don't measure up, you go to "hell". Damnable. Damnable. Damnable philosophy. Fear Religion. Raise your ugly head , AGAIN. AGAIN. AGAIN.

The truth is REFRESHING. It is pure. It is Assuring. And Alluring. It is God's love expressed in His plan and our involvement IN His life forever. Can you see that?

Take your pick. Greek philosophy which says you may just burn forever, or God's simple truth that He loves you and has saved you and Adopded you and Included you into His life forever. ( Eph. 1:3-14). Believe it !!!

Not Rocket Science my friend,

In Luke 19:10, Jesus came to seek and to save what was lost! I submit He did. ALL humans were lost in the first Adam's sin. Death passed on to all humanity through Adam. ( I Cor.15:22 ). Was Jesus somehow selective in His saving mission? OR, was Jesus the payment or propitiation for the sins not only of Christians, but of the WHOLE world? Everyone? (See: I John 2:2; John 3:16-17; John 19:30).

So, we might ask, "If someone is not saved now, when does he/she become or get saved?" Would one in this position be "potentially" saved in Jesus depending on what decisions THEY make? Do they negate Jesus' salvation for them by their lack of acceptance of Christ and their unbelief? Do we humans determine how Jesus' salvation for us works? And, if this is the case, would this not be an example of the "tail wagging the dog"?

I think scripture is abundantly clear that ALL are and have been saved in Jesus Christ and not only saved but ADOPTED and INCLUDED in the Triune God's life forever.(Ephesians 1:3-14). This all having been done for and to man before man was ever born. Therefore, the salvation of all humanity is in place and is a fact for all. Man can not make it happen or make it UN-happen. Man can not make it not so for it IS so for all.

Man can hiss, spit, spew, cuss, argue, resist, deny, reject, not accept and not believe it is so for himself, but it will not go away. It is here to stay. It is the Great Triune God's declaration that He loves man and desires to live forever with man in His life.

Man does not determine the spiritual dynamics of how the Triune God exercises His loving divine Grace. However, man in his distinction and free choice does determine IF he will believe WHO he is in Jesus. Man can choose 'abundant life' in Jesus or 'continued suffering and misery' in his non belief. One we call "Heaven", the other we call "Hell".

The only thing for man to do when presented with this Truth of all Truths is to
decide whether or not to believe it subjectively.

"Lord, I believe, help my unbelief."

FORGET whatever you have ever heard or thought of as the BIG BANG.!!! I want to share with you a bang which was ever so much bigger than whatever the original was as to make it almost unnoticed.

When the Son of Man, the incarnate Son of God, came to this earth to unite and Adopt and include mankind into the very life of Almighty God--The Great Triune God--cosmic shaking events occurred in His Mission.

When HE, Jesus, was born in Bethlehem the whole chorus of Angels of the universe sang for Joy at the birth of the Son of God being born of Mary. I suspect that when this same Jesus was crucified and resurrected on that early Sunday morning that there were fireworks we can't even imagine going off in the universe at the completion of what He said he came to do. (Luke 19:10; John 19:30---It is finished , He said.)

I submit that when this Jesus walked the "red carpet" to His Father in Heaven to be received and become glorified at His Father's right hand that there were explosions going off in the Cosmos that pale into insignificance the original sound of Creation.

At this event, the plan of God is secured in Jesus. It is assured for every human who ever lived or will ever live on this earth. How big is that??? How big of an explosion of angelic song and praise is that.???

You get the picture. What ever the original sound of the creation was, the celebration of the Son of God, the Son of Man accomplishing His mission to Adopt and connect mankind to the Great Triune God was truly a celebration of such great magnitude that it overshadowed the original sounds by its great magnitude.

Let's cease arguing about the original creation of How God did it and focus on the MOST important fact for all of us and that is Jesus Christ loves all of us and has Adopted and Included all of us into the life of the Great Triune God --- forever.

Cool? Huh? For more information on this very subject, go to www.wcg.org and ask for the free booklet, " Trinitarian Theology". You will see how you have been loved and included all along in God's life now and forever.

Every Blessing,

Pastor Paul
