Everyone is Born a Human

Everyone is born like their mom and dad, a human – having flesh only, without a spirit. No one is born by mom and dad with a spirit like God, who is the Spirit.

We humans are only flesh and since God is spirit, we must be “born again” born as a spirit, born by God to be in God’s presence and family. We must be born a spirit to live forever with God.

By our really acting good and trying to be righteous will not make us, like God. We are only humans and are separated forever from God, the Spirit.

We are without a spirit because of what our ancestor Adam did. Adam killed his spirit that was originally placed in Adam’s flesh by God. Adam is responsible for starting the mess of sin, degradation, and death we live in today.

Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 

Since all us humans came from Adam, we all lack a spirit. We only are made flesh, no spirit. Just like we each inherit some quirky genetic traits from our parents or grandparents like baldness, height, skin color, etc. All of us humans inherited “the spirit is dead” trait from Adam.

The solution to becoming a spirit is only found in God’s Son, Jesus. To anyone who asks His Son, Jesus, into their lives God will create in them a spirit born by God. A new life with God our new Father.

The gift of eternal life, spirit life, is in Jesus, God’s Son. Anyone who asks Jesus into their life, God gives to them LIFE. That life is found in Jesus.

1 John 5:12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 

Mom and dad create flesh, carnal life. God creates spirits, spirit life.

John 3:5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit

The loving Father, God, will give us eternal life when we ask. That life is only found in Jesus. He will create in you a spirit. 

John 3:7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’.

You and your new Father, God, will always be together as spirit even after your flesh is dead.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 

Ask Jesus into your life now! Become a child of God – “born again.”

Become more than just flesh but also a spirit from God. Two beings living in one flesh, “born again.” 

Live with God forever.

Become more than just flesh but also a spirit from God. Two beings living in one flesh, “born again.” 

Live with God forever.

We are born incomplete!

We are born with only our mom and dad part – our human part. We are missing the God part – our spirit part. Only God can give us the spirit part who is Jesus. We cannot earn or buy the spirit part, Jesus. Like the free human birth by mom and dad, Jesus is the free gift from God. So, ask God for Jesus. He is the gift from God.

God gives us Jesus.   You just need to accept Jesus to be complete.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Romans 10:9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Jesus makes me adequate

The inadequacy of us is shown in the Law, the Old Testament. We are exposed to our unrighteousness making us unacceptable before God.

The adequacy of us is shown in Jesus, the New Testament. We are covered by His blood making us acceptable before God.

Throwing God out of Society

From the 60’s the USA started to move away from God. It probably started earlier but the 60’s is as far back as I remember. In 1960 fish sticks were always served at schools on Friday, stores were closed on Sunday, the song “Earth Angel” was band from the radio in San Jose, California by the Catholic church.  There were very, very few girls that had had sex. Respect of a girl’s virginity by boys was more than today. The majority of people rested on Sunday and went to church. Parents were respected. Children called adults by their last names. Youth and drugs were unknow or very, very minimal. Electing Kennedy for president was a big thing. He was Catholic and not a Protestant. Few were divorced. I was ashamed my parents were divorced. I went to a high school in Seattle with about 3,000 kids. To the best of my knowledge [I knew most kids]: 2 divorces, no girls pregnant, one “loose” girl and guy in school. No drugs but smoking and drinking yes. As the Viet Nam war accelerated, and the Beatles returned from India, new age moved into society, sex and rock and roll became common by 1965 and by Woodstock in 1969 things were different. God was being pushed out and replaced by self.  “Me and I” first became most important. To change that much any restrictions by God had to be removed. The removal of the awareness of God and things of God has continued until today.

The attempt to create human freedom is found in our effort to eliminate God from society. Instead of creating human freedom we created spiritual bondage by the devil, and his minions and demons. Either willingly or not, the West and especially our country has become servants to the devil. We humans got more then we bargained for from the devil. The devil’s nature is to hate, to only lie, to divide, and provide bondage, divide and kill. We have received a lot of all of that already. We will continue to go down this road of servitude and pain until we cry out to God for help. For some reason the Demoncrates have embraced the nature of the devil. I think among other things, Demoncrates love the control, the power and authority they have.

Jesus said: John 10:10 The thief [the devil] does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Speaking to the Jews about the devil, Jesus said: John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

So, we have eliminated God from our society and are reaping the rewards provided by the devil, lies, hatred, division, deception, discourse, destruction, and more.

Even if we do not see the battle, there is one in God’s realm and we see the results.

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

God is the merciful God.

2 Corinthians 3:16 Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

The solution is not from changing our policies, or ways, it is by Christian’s humbly asking God to return to His rightful position of leading the USA.

2 Chronicles 7:15 Now My [God] eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.

Seek God and we shall see Him as He is

Seek God and we shall see God as He is. We physically cannot see God but we can know that He exists. We know He exists because we can see what He has made.

Romans 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 

God has given we humans the right, the ability to know God. God is spirit. He is not flesh. He is the Spirit. We can see God in our understanding as we put in the effort to seek Him. This effort is done in Faith since He is in another realm, the spirit realm.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

By seeking God and therefore knowing God we have everything pertaining to Life and Godliness which is Jesus.

2 Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

The understanding of God and who He is comes from our seeking Him by Faith- starting with believing He exists – SEEK HIM!  then you will FIND HIM!

Deuteronomy 4:29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. 

Jeremiah 29:12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 

Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.

Because we seek God the Holy Spirit opens our spirit’s eye and we see Him for who He is.

1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

Ephesians 1: 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 

Psalm 119:18 Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law.

Isaiah 42:7 To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the prison, Those who sit in darkness from the prison house.

As God opens our spirit’s understanding of God we gain understanding that He is unparalleled and not understandable without the Holy Spirit teaching our spirit the reality of God.

Grant’s opinion of the world – March 13, 2021

Not that it matters at all, but here is – grant’s opinion of the world. The next steps in our future.

God will do God’s will by His Holy Spirit.

Zechariah 4:6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty. By My Spirit!!

  • In the USA, satan is trying to destroy God’s children. Evil is destroying everything Christians have in the world down to and including their jobs, lifestyle, social media, churches, friends and family, and any security they may have in the world. The cancel culture is hard at work removing all Christians, Christian values and conservatives from society. The world is trying to marginalize us Christians.
  • The whole plan of the Demoncrats and secular humanists is to control everyone and everything. Their plan is to dominate and ostracize Conservatives and especially Christians from society and any authority or leadership roles in this country, then to control them. That will backfire. Instead, God is going to separate and marginalize the Demoncrats and secular humanists from authority and ruling. As God separates and sets aside the unsaved and secular humanists from us Christians, God will start to press down on the unsaved, the demoncrats, the secular humanists, and the rest of the unsaved in the world toward finding Jesus as Savior. John 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
  • From God’s point of view, the world is not destroying God’s people. Instead, God is separating the world from us Christians. God is separating this hateful demonic-controlled world and moving it into a corner. Psalms 46:8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, Who has made desolations in the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.
  • God is doing this separation of the world from Christians using the Holy Spirit to do the necessary work. We are not going to do the WORKS FOR God. God is doing this work by His Holy Spirit in us. This is ALL God doing the work as He wills. Zechariah 4:6 So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.
  • This separation of the world from Christians is and will continue to be hard on us Christians. The love of the world is a strong pull for all people including Christians. We all live here. All humanity even us Christians, like the world and want to hang onto the world, a lot. Everyone finds the world a secure place. Our job, our businesses, our work, our lifestyle, our wealth, even down to our family lives here. A huge part of our lives is in the world. 1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
  • God is moving the world away from Christians because we have become very attached to the world. We are not of the world. We Christians are of God’s Family. John 15:18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 
  • God is moving the world into a corner – a corner the world cannot get out of by any of its own strength. He will do this without the help of any Christians or any “great men of God,” no church, no pastors, no hired hands, only through whom He pleases. Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
  • God is starting this separation and will continue to separate Christians from the world. The start of separation from the world is through Salvation. God is starting a mass “revival” in the world. Millions upon millions of people all over the world are being and going to be Saved; that is, they will ask Jesus into their lives. The Holy Spirit is doing this Salvation in the world. John 17:16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
  • To those currently Saved and the millions and millions that are being and going to be Saved God will reveal to them His Holiness, His Righteousness. His Holiness and Righteousness will be the way God uses to separate us from the world. By God revealing Himself we will want to be like Jesus is – in our spirits. The view of today’s Christians of God plus living by the world will dissolve as the way we should live. All Christians will view God differently. We will want to live from our spirit by Faith. We will want to set our flesh and the world we live in aside. Instead, we will diligently seek God so as to be like Jesus is.  Luke 9:59 Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.”    We will view God in His cloak of Holiness, Righteousness, and of the complete Light that He is, Perfection. Our desire will be to let Him mature us into the likeness of Jesus. To be like Jesus will be the goal of our spirit over our flesh. This desire to seek and become mature comes by Faith from the Holy Spirit. As the number of Saved people increases and the desire to seek and mature into the likeness of Jesus increases over the world; the number and influences of the world will greatly decrease. Therefore, the people of the world and its influence will be pushed into a corner of little significance.
  • God also is removing the world’s influence on Christians so our dependence will only be solid and dependent on God. We will place our Hope, our Faith in God and not in ourselves, not in material things or in the world. God is separating the world from us. 1 Corinthians 7:31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.
  • As another showing of God’s love for those turning to God, God will lead us to restore health to people. Jesus through Christians led by His Holy Spirit will heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons. God will be about emptying hospitals. God wants people free and He will use those saved to do just that. Matthew 10:7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. 
  • We will see a fuller view of Jesus as He opens our eyes and reveals Himself to us.  John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
  • God will protect and carry us Christians during this time while separating the world from us. Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. That’s because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done.
  • The unsaved will be pushed beyond their abilities. Like Noah and the flood, the Egyptian Army destruction at the Red Sea, Sodom and Gomorrah, Nineveh, Jericho, etc. The unsaved will desperately look for solutions and help from everywhere they normally look for solutions and help, i.e.; themselves, government, the rest of the world, businesses, doctors, banks, monetary systems, stocks, social media, anyone and everywhere the world has looked to and in the past depended on. But no help will be found. God will make sure of that. 2 Timothy 3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
  • God is love, so God will, by His Holy Spirit in us Christians, encourage us to drop any hate and instead, pick up God’s love and share it in the world, no matter how painful to our flesh. Matthew 5:38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.
  • Through the Holy Spirit in us, we will love the world and bless them. A great number of the world will enter into the family of God’s children. Just like God loves us He loves them. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 
  • A great number of people in the world will turn to God for help and Salvation. Their eyes will be open to seeing their need for God, while some will raise their fists in defiance to God. Psalm 75:2 “When I choose the proper time, I will judge uprightly. 3 The earth and all its inhabitants are dissolved; I set up its pillars firmly. Selah 4 “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not deal boastfully,’ And to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn. 5 Do not lift up your horn on high; Do not speak with a stiff neck.’” 6 For exaltation comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. 7 But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts another.
  • In the outcome a mass number of people will be saved and set free.  God will glorify Himself. God will be exalted. 1 Chronicles 29:11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, And You are exalted as head over all.

This is only part of the future. I have no clue after revival what else will happen.

Adding works to God’s perfect salvation

Adding your works to God’s perfect salvation – What do you think you can add to the Perfect Salvation from the Perfect God by your pathetic carnal mind to improve on Salvation from God? Either by your invented “good works’ or by your action to perform these “good works” could you be found worthy in front of Almighty God. That is very egotistical of you. 

  • Galatians 2:16 knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.

Asking your Forgiveness for your sins – If I might be so bold, even asking forgiveness for our sins over and over again downgrades the blood of Christ.

  • Hebrews 1:3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sinssat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 
  • Hebrews 9:12 Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption

We see the natural so we can understand the supernatural

God has given us what we can see and understand in this world, so we can grasp what we can’t see in the world of the Spirit.  We understand in the natural so we can comprehend in the supernatural.

We live in a family so we can understand God the Father and God the Son and the Holy Spirit. That we have siblings so we can understand the children of our Father, God.

EVERYONE IS BORN SEPARATED FROM GOD-BUT

Everyone is born separated from God, just like everyone is born with a brain and a heart, everyone is born without God’s gene. This lack is not our fault. But we do choose to continually live in this world of filth and degradation without God’s gene. We reject God’s offer to receive God’s seed, Jesus.

God alone provides Jesus, which is God’s gene, His gift to us humans.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17.

If we ask – God Freely gives us His gene, who is Jesus.

God has revealed Himself to humanity by the things He has made, the earth, the sun, the stars, all the universe, nature, animals, the wonderful complex creation of a body. We humans have rejected the Creator, God, turning our back on Him. Instead, we think we are the gods of our life. That is a lie.

For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. Romans 10:3

We are not equal with God. We are only created beings. We are dead to God without the God gene, Jesus. We all need the God gene or we are separated from God forever. God’s Son Jesus is that gene. Jesus is the Free gift of eternal life given only by God. Redemption is only gifted, not earned by our goodness.

Flesh is flesh. Spirit is spirit. All humanity is flesh. We have human genes creating our flesh. We all lack the God gene without Jesus. We all need Jesus to be complete to God. We need to ask Jesus for the Spirit of God in our lives.

“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”:  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:8-10

God’s gift to you, Free for the asking – Eternal life with God and His Son, Jesus.

By Faith!!!

Faith is the conveyance from request to reality.

By Faith we ask Jesus into our Lives. Romans 10:10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”

By Faith we are new creatures like Jesus, spirits. John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.

By Faith we now live on earth in Jesus from the heavenly realm. John 17:14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

By Faith we live our time on the earth. 2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by faith, not by sight.

 By Faith we seek and thereby understand God. Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.

By Faith we see the goodness of God. Psalms 34:8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! 9 Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.

By Faith we are partakers of God’s abundant life and godliness. 2 Peter 1:3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Pure Glory

The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims His handiwork. Psalms 19:1
