  1. Blessings Turtletwo, your heart after God shines through and in your poem(s). It is a most pleasant thing to read and taste.

  2. 2 Corinthians 3:5 (NASB) Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, Our adequacy is in God and not in ourselves, to accomplish anything good in this world or in our walks with God. Our eyes must of all necessity stay on Him at all times. Though the valleys or the times of dying will come. The harder, faster, stronger our eyes stay on Christ the quicker and more smoother, even with the pain of dying, will we come through the whatever it is we’re going through. To the increase and joy that waits for us on the other side. It takes a heart that is willing and that is all it takes, God will do the rest if the heart stays willing and continually wants Him to. Blessings to all that would “want Him to” Much love in Christ, Not me

May God reveal the love He has for you in a new and awesome and wonderful way. blessings, much love in Christ to all, Not me
  4. Such a wonderful verse and the truth that it brings forth. Yes God’s love is, is, is, how can one describe it? But with all the joy that knowing Him brings to the heart of man. Blessings PromisesPromises! May Christ enlarge Himself in you beyond all you could ever ask, hope or dream of. Much love in Christ, Not me

  6. Jeremiah 31:3 (KJV) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. This is God’s desire and heart towards mankind, it is with this love He draws mankind. This eternal, everlasting love. The goodness of a love that is beyond measure, a love that is goodness itself. A love that is pureness itself. A love that is pure righteousness. A love that is free from all disorder, free from every form of selfishness or any evil thing. It is everlasting purity itself. An everlasting love that has no beginning or end. This is the great and awesome love that was given in Christ when Christ was given to mankind. Today His love shines on all, searching and seeking a heart it may enter, all the day long it knocks and asks to be allowed to enter. Looking for a heart that would be willing to give up all it’s own self, all it’s own love, that it might be able to love with the love of God. This love God freely gives to all that would ask. Can easily be accessed at any moment of time by the faith of the heart of the believer, regardless of the state or condition of the heart. A simple turning of the faith of the heart to God is all that is required, and a willingness to believe in the love of God. This is God’s work of wonder. It heals all, it fixes all, it forgives all, it is for all that would be willing to accept this love on loves own terms. This love of God toward mankind is the all of God. It is His gift of Himself to mankind. For as long as today is called today His love shines to bring forth the fruit of love. Oh to love with the love of God, though it will cost us all, all we lay claim to as our own. This love is God’s heart toward mankind, that mankind would love each other with this love of God. It is such a wondrous, a glorious love, the heart breaks and melts at the prospect of being loved by this love and being able to love with this love. For there can be no higher gift to receive or give than to love with the love of God. Oh to walk in perfect righteousness is to walk in perfect love. To walk in perfect love is to walk in perfect righteousness. Oh what a wonder is God’s gift of love that was revealed in Christ Jesus. Nothing can prevent us from receiving the love of God in Christ Jesus, except our unwillingness to receive it. Blessing to all that would be willing to give up all their hopes, dreams, desires to receive such great a gift that they can be conduits, of the love of God to all. Much love in Christ, Not me
  7. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  8. Yes, our Lord is sinless. Being dead in Christ frees us from the law. If the listed qualities of the fruit of the Spirit could be acquired under the law then Christ died in vain. Yes, “the just shall live by faith” As my fellow believer in Christ I wish you all the love and joy of this great and awesome salvation we have in Christ. As we both press into Christ that we might come to know Him personally in all reality and truth I also wish you well as we grow up in Him. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  9. Galatians 5:22-23(NASB) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Scripture says against such things as the fruit of the Spirit there is no law. If there is no law there is no transgressions. So yes, sin would be put away by the manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit. I might add, for sin to be totally put away one would have to be manifesting all of the fruit of the Spirit all of the time with no variations or degree. The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus they would be living by and in the completeness of. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  10. May God hear the cry of your heart. May He full your heart with all wisdom and knowledge of the mystery, which is, “Christ in you”. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  11. Scripture says that God’s desire is we bare much fruit. In another part, scripture uses the phase “fruit of the Spirit” I can only conclude the fruit of the Spirit being manifested would be proof that one is Christ’s. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  12. “For to me to live is Christ to die is gain” Such a beautiful scripture, that we all that call upon His name, would make these words, be the desire of our hearts. Blessings, Hi Elihoenai; “How do we measure true discipleship” 2 Corinthians 12:6 (NIV) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, Scripture says we are to judge man no more or higher than they “do or say”. This is meant to portray we only judge a man according to how much Christ we actually see in him. That Christ would be seen in us all, by all. Blessings As we press into Christ. That the words of this scripture would find a home in each one of our hearts and lives. Blessings. Wise insights. Blessings. Much love in Christ to all. Not me
  13. My humblest apologies JTC if I failed to answer the intent of your question. I thought you were asking what it means to be dead in Christ. “Tell me please, what exactly it means to be dead in Christ? I'd like real life examples of how one would know if he was indeed dead in Christ? “ So I tried to explain what being dead in Christ meant and how one might know if they were. If you would allow me the privilege of trying to answer your question of how one might know the behavioral difference question, I would be most honored. “How would a person dead in Christ behave compared to one who's just saying he is?” All believers by the fact of them being joined to Christ by the new birth are dead in Christ. As a result of the new birth they should be bringing forth the fruit of the Spirit in a ever increasing degree. In all it’s various manifestation. The two examples you brought forth of someone doing a act of righteousness are most excellent. A person who just says they are dead in Christ but aren’t, aren't Christians at all. They may pretend, but there’s no new life birthed in them, so they would be incapable of producing the fruit of the Spirit as true fruit. They may try their best but in the end self would be exposed and expressed. For the fruit of the Spirit can only come from the Spirit. Hope this blesses you and answers your question. Much love in Christ, Not me
  14. Hi JTC, Absolutely! To talk about the greatest subject on this planet earth, “our deaths” in Christ, what a blessing. First, this understanding of what it means to be “dead in Christ” has absolutely no bearing on whether one is saved or not. Scripture says; Romans 10:9 (NASB) that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; Period, no, if, ands or buts. The only question that can be raised by the above scripture is what it means to “believe in the heart” vs “believe in the head” but that’s another subject for another day. This correct faith causes the new birth to be birthed in the believer regardless of what more they know, or don’t know, concerning their salvation in Christ.....Growing in Christ is learning what our salvation in Christ consists of. So moving on to your question of what it means to be dead in Christ? How this “dead in Christ” is to be understood. Christ came to be the fulfillment of the law. The law says; “the soul that sins that soul shall die” Christ came to die for us. This death for us, consisted of Him taking us to death with Him on the cross, thereby by us being joined with Him in His death when He died, we died. Thereby the laws demands on a sinful soul were fulfilled, that sinful soul died, by virtue of being joined with Christ in His death. This is what our salvation in Christ consists of, our being joined to Christ in His death. This is the reason for the command to “reckon ourselves dead onto sin and alive unto God”. It is being obedient to this command to “reckon ourselves dead” that is the doorway to walking in newness of life, being made free from sin. Our salvation is by faith from stem to stern. This is what the Galatians stumbled over. Living by faith is walking in the Spirit. It is to the degree one appropriates this truth to themselves, is to the degree they will be made free from the dictates of their fallen nature. Whereby they can walk in newness of life. Hope this brief explanation helps a bit. Blessings, Much love in Christ, Not me
  15. Galatians 6:14 (NASB) But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Paul’s boast and strength was in his death in Christ. This was that that Paul put forth as the one thing in his walk with Christ that was his mainstay. This was his hope, his desire, the all of his walk with Christ. This was the foremost in his mind as he went through his day. He, being crucified to the world and the world being crucified to him. He had given his life over to his death in Christ, whereby nothing was his, it was all Christ’s, and all was Christ. He woke up in the morning seeing his death in Christ. He walked through his day living his death in Christ. Whereby he gloried in his death in Christ, it was the one thing that he called his own. His death in Christ. Whereby the world was crucified to him and him to the world. This that was Paul’s walk with Christ was not a aberration. This was a Christian who had been willing to give their all to Christ. He was working his own salvation out with fear and trembling. He was denying self picking up his cross and following Jesus. Though it is true God has different offices for different believers, they are all for the building up of the body to become a full man in Christ. Than after Christ’s body becomes full grown the office’s become nothing, of no use whatsoever anymore, than all things resort to the individual’s personal relationship with Christ. That being our glory and reward for all eternity. Our personal relationship with Christ and the depths of it. This relationship that Paul had with Christ is a common relationship that is open to all that would be willing to press into Christ with their whole heart, their whole mind and strength. Though their office before God will be one of God’s choosing, their relationship and the depth of their relationship is of their own choosing. For God is no respecter of persons, His life and love is open to all to the same depth of His gift of Christ. Christ being His heart. Therefore having given His heart to mankind, He gave His everything to mankind. To whosoever will, He gave His all when He gave Christ. This giving His all to humanity was and is, still, even to this day, to those that would be willing to give up all of themselves, their very life’s to this one who gave them His all. This is done in the heart, this giving up oneself to God. Whereby God would become the Lord and Master of all that was done in the daily life of the believer. That righteousness and only righteousness would be that thing that was expressed in and through all those that would be willing to give up their all to their deaths in Christ, whereby they would be crucified to the world and the world crucified to them. This is that one and one relationship with Christ that is that which the human heart not only craves for, but the only thing that will bring the human heart to rest. For that is why the human heart was made. Being the abode of God. Blessings to all that would want to make this a living reality in their life’s. Much love in Christ, Not me
