In Short? YES! This article is spiritually considered “meat” not milk. It may be unpalatable for some to read.
How would you know– ‘Angry Jane’, what Jesus is up to?
Good question! Let me share with you all that I see.
Keep in mind we do not know in what manner Jesus is returning. Surely it will not be in the flesh. Surely He is not going to do that again. He will return in a spiritual way. Such as filling up all His children to the brim with His Spirit and by transfiguration changing them, us.
“Not all shall sleep but we shall all be changed.”
Paraphrased Scriptures. Pray ye escape the end of days tribulation.
“Behold, I show you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump. The trumpet will sound, and the dead in Christ shall be raised imperishable and corrupt shall be clothed with incorruption. The temporal shall become eternal.”
“But I professed Jesus as my Savior when I was 8 years old. So then why wouldn’t I be saved?” Says the Christian
And I said grace before most meals. What if you treated & communicated with your wife from a script that was given to you by a marriage counselor and never veered from that script. Never speaking your own words by your own heart? Take off the mask and be who you really are. Refuse the programming given you.
No, we are not saved by the right works & works alone. Granted you could say everything is works even prayer and a relationship with God are works. But by works I mean “good deeds”. It is our Faith and our condition of the heart toward God & man that God looks upon in us. Our status in the realm of The Spirit after death however, depends on the works we have carried out while vulnerable, naive, weak, and human. Courageous righteous acts carry alot of weight like giving your life so another can live. Do we not reap what we sow?
Time tells all, so says humanity. Time does tell alot however time is a given only to those of the flesh who grow old and die. Time and humanity are one.
The Spirit and eternity are one. Meaning, eternity and spirituality standing alone are also one.
To be spirit is to be eternal.
To be flesh is to be temporal.
“One day ye shall know as well as ye are known.
Then remain these three. Faith, Hope, & Love but the greatest is Love.”
If salvation were due to Grace alone then Grace would be eternal as well.
