SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe the artificial barriers of alienation became a threat to genuine human relationship because in these modern days, people are so focused on labels. The labels given to people that comes from a different country or race or any social groups. That we as a people forgot the value of genuine relationship because we tend to isolate ourselves with in our own race. Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Christ Jesus neither the circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love. Galatians 5: 16 NKJV
FALLEN – It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age, if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace. Hebrews 6: 4-6 NIV
2 Peter 3: 1-18 – But you, my friends, already know this. Be on your guard, then, so that you will not be led away by the errors of lawless people and fall from your safe position. But continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory, now and forever! Amen. GNT
Alienated – We at VAL-TE’ believe the very meaning of “if Two of You on Earth Agree about anything…” There is great power in the unified prayers of God’s people, for we are not fighting against human beings but against the MINDSET, that continues to label and alienate God’s people. So then, white people cannot say to people of color, “I don’t need you!” Nor can society say to people of color, “Well, I don’t need you!” On the contrary, we cannot do without God’s people that seem to be weaker; and God’s people that we think aren’t worth very much are the ones which we treat with greater care; while God’s people which don’t look very nice are treated with special modesty, which the more God’s people do not need. God himself put His people together in such a way as to give greater honor to God’s people that need it. And so there is no division in God’s people, but all it’s different people have the same concern for one another. If one of God’s people suffers, all the other of God’s people suffer with them; if one of God’s people is praised, all the other of God’s people share in their happiness.
