SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
Having taken a couple of weeks off to see my 93 year old Grandmother, and celebrate my 60th Birthday, I have chosen this next scripture. “Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:19-22 NKJV
CORNERSTONE – For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building. 1 Corinthians 3:9 NIV
Romans 6:20-23 – When you were the slaves of sin you were free from righteousness. What did you gain from doing the things that you are now ashamed of? The result of those things is (Spiritual) death! But now you have been set free from sin and are the slaves of God. Your gain is a life fully dedicated to Him, and the result is eternal life. For sin pays its wage – (Spiritual) death; but God’s free gift is eternal life in union with Christ Jesus our Lord. GNT
Basis of our Belief – This tendency to explain the natural world through the existence of an Higher Power with God – things like Immanuel, God with Us, God’s Plan through Jesus Christ – form the Basis of our Belief used for accepting the truth. I truly believe that all denominations are under the same umbrella of belief in an Higher Power, although Jesus is considered the only way to become God’s children. Christ is the visible likeness of the invisible God. He is the first-born Son, superior to all created things. For through Him God created everything in heaven and on earth, the seen and the unseen things, including spiritual powers, lords, rulers, and authorities. God created the whole universe through Him and for Him.
