SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe describes a person, whose highest goal is to be loving to oneself and others. “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Immanuel said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” John 14: 1-7 NKJV
THE WAY – Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Immanuel, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5: 1-5 NIV
Ephesians 2: 18-22 – It is through Immanuel that all of us, Jews and Gentiles, are able to come in the one Spirit into the presence of the Father. So then, you Gentiles are not foreigners or strangers any longer; you are now citizens together with God’s people and members of the family of God. You, too, are built upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, the cornerstone being Immanuel himself. He is the one who holds the whole building together and makes it grow into a sacred temple dedicated to the Lord. In union with him you too are being built together with all the others into a place where God lives through his Spirit. GNT
Spirituality (A Religious Process of Re-formation Which Aims to Recover the Original Mindset of Man) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe involves the recognition of a feeling or sense of belief that there is something greater than ourselves, something more to being human than sensory experience, and that the greater whole of which we are part is divine in nature. He opened for us a new way, a living way, through the curtain – that is, through his own body. We have someone that suffered as a result of it, in charge of the house of God. So let us come near to God with true intentions and faith that God exists, with minds that have been purified from a guilty conscience and with a spiritual rebirth, or a regeneration of the human spirit.
