And thankfully i am !NOW! a brother of The Messiah, and "a son of Our FATHER (ABBA) and GOD (ELOHIM)"! And so it is i have my portion !NOW! in HIS Family, "Of WHOM the whole Family both in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"! (Matthew 12:47-50, John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18, Ephesians 3:15, Galatians 6:10)
A Spiritual Messianic Jew and brother of The Messiah, "whose circumcision is that of the heart, in The SPIRIT"! A Hebrew(aka: one from beyond) and a son of Abraham,"the father of The Faithful"! (Romans 2:28-29; 4:1-25) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-new-covenant-and-new-covenant-jew.html
And because i have REALized that my "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven" i choose to remain but an "alien and pilgrim while on the earth"....... (Philippians 3:20, Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11)
For soon, and very soon, i will be taken Home, Home at last! (John 14:2-3)
Thankfully that Heavenly Home IS a Living, Lively Hope!
The "Born Again (of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT) "brethren of The Messiah evermore REALize how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD we Truly are! For liken unto The Messiah, we have also REALized "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, Psalms 70;5; 72:13, John 5:19,30; 8:28-29, 7:16; 9:4; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html
So it is the brethren of The Messiah evermore sound and resound a Declaration of Dependence:
HE DID! and HE does.......
So Thankfully "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17: 14:28, Mark 10:18)
