SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe people of faith are not only to serve one another in love, they also should do good to each person for the good of all. Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6: 6-10 NKJV
PERSEVERE – Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. Hebrews 11: 1-3 NIV
Proverbs 4: 20-27 – My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen to my words. Never let them get away from you. Remember them and keep them in your heart. They will give life and health to anyone who understands them. Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. Never say anything that isn’t true. Have nothing to do with lies and misleading words. Look straight ahead with honest confidence; don’t hang your head in shame. Plan carefully what you do, and whatever you do will turn out right. Avoid evil and walk straight ahead. Don’t go one step off the right way. GNT
Carry on Immanuel’s Work, not to Begin a New One – We at VAL-TE’ also believe, as you wait for that Day, do your best to be good and not hearers only in God’s sight and to be at peace with Him. Look on our Lord’s patience as the opportunity He is giving you to be justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Immanuel, just as Paul wrote using the wisdom that God gave him. This is what he says in all his letters when he writes on the subject. There are some difficult things in his letters which ignorant and unstable people explain falsely, as they do with other passages of the Scriptures. So they bring on their own destruction. But you, my friends, already know this. Be on your guard, then so that you will not be led into the acts or practices by the errors of people who have slipped in unnoticed among us, persons who deliberately distort the message about the grace of our God and fall from your safe position. But to continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Immanuel. To Him be the glory, now and forever! Amen.
