SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe teaches us that those who get worked-up over our being ourselves don’t matter enough to not be ourselves in order to be accepted by them. But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Immanuel, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Immanuel, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previous committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Immanuel. Romans 3: 21-26 NKJV
HUMANKIND – For my own name’s sake I delay my wrath; for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you, so as not to cut you off. See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another. Isaiah 48: 9-11 NIV
Galatians 2: 19-21 – So far as the Law is concerned, however, I am dead – killed to the Law itself – in order that I might live for God. I have been put to death with Immanuel on his cross, so that it is no longer I who live, but it is Immanuel who lives in me. This life that I live now, I live for faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me. I refuse to reject the grace of God. But if a person is put right with God through the Law, it means that Immanuel died for nothing! GNT
The Value of Every Human Life – We at VAL-TE’ also believe God, who made the world and everything in it, is Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples made by human hands. Nor does He need anything that we can supply by working for Him, since it is He Himself who gives life and breath and everything else to everyone. From one human being He created all races of people and made them live throughout the whole earth. He himself fixed beforehand the exact times and the limits of the places where they would live. He did this so that they would look for Him, and perhaps find Him as they felt around for Him. Yet God is actually not far from any one of us.
