Godís Absolute Truths Are Spiritual Edited 4/2/21

Godís truths found only in the context of the entire Bible

 

One cannot understand the Bible without knowing Godís spiritual plan of salvation for us

*"God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." Jn 4:24 NASB+

 

Godís absolute spiritual truths will never change; are only found in the context of the entire Bible (Gen-Rev). Our God is an invisible eternal spiritual being, who has always been and will always be. Our God is One God, yet He is a spiritual being with 3 distinct persons; our Heavenly Father, the Fatherís Son and the Holy Spirit. See Our God††

*God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? Nu 23:19 ESV+

*To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. 1Ti 1:17 ESV+

*Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matt 28:19 ESV+

 

The Bible is all about our great Godís love for us, is the greatest love story the world will ever experience. The Bible alone contains the spiritual truths of our great God; the truths which existed before the world was created, still exist today, and will exist eternally. This story begins when God wanted to have a family, knew He would first have to design a universe, with everything we would need to physically exist in it; so we could be Godís children, could have spiritual peace and joy when we loved and obeyed Him.

*just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, Eph 1:4 NKJV+

*who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, 2Ti 1:9 NKJV+

 

Our Heavenly Father wanted children to love, who in return would love Him back, love Him above all things; and because of our love, for our God, we would obey our Fatherís commands.

*See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 1Jn 3:1 NASB+

*And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 1Jn 4:16 NIV+

 

Yet the first man (Adam) God created and the first woman God created would sin; disobey their Heavenly Father, not love Him above all things and were no longer holy, no longer holy children of God. Our Heavenly Father put a curse upon Adam, that his physical body must die; and all people will inherit Adamís original sin, for we all can die.

*By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall returnGen 3:19 ESV+

*For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. 1Co 15:21-22 ESV+

 

The Son of God had a tremendous desire to have brothers and sisters to love; brothers and sisters who would love Him above all things. So great was His love for us that while still remaining God, who is an eternal spiritual being; the Son came to earth, became a physical man Jesus, and physically died on the cross to redeem us from our sins. So He could make the faithful, and believersí eternal spiritual beings (soul and spirit) holy and they could come into the holy family of our God. When our sinful mortal physical body dies, believersí eternal spiritual beings go to Heaven; to await Jesus return in the clouds over earth. Jesus will return with all the believersí spiritual beings in Heaven accompanying Him, their physical bodies will be resurrected from the dead and united with their spiritual beings. Then along with all the believers who are still living on earth; all will be given an eternal glorified spiritual body. And Jesus will take us to be with Him forever. All of this is specifically covered in different sections of Godís 7 Kingdoms

*For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. Ro 8:29 NIV+

*Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers. Heb 2:11 NIV+

 

The Holy Spiritís great love for us in introducing us to Jesus, living within the hearts, (inter-most part of our spiritual being) of all who will accept Him in; which makes us spiritually one with Jesus, part of Christís One Holy Spiritual Church. The Spirit helps us understand the spiritual truths in the Bible, so He can securely hold us together in the family of God.

*The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Ro 8:14-17 NIV+

*because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." Ro 8:15 NIV+

 

Our Heavenly Father knew He would have to make a plan to save us before He began creating the universe, everything in it. Our Father knew that for us to love Him, love others, we would have to have a free will; for you cannot force anyone to love you, it is a choice one must make. Our Father knew that if He gave us a free will, we would have the ability to disobey Him; knew that man would disobey Him and become sinful.

So our Father made a plan to save us before He created the universe, everything in it; because of His love and desire to have those who would love Him above all things, and obey His commands become His holy children.††

*In him we were [made heirs] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, Eph 1:11 NIV+

 

Godís Words written in the Bible are a spiritual revelation of who our great God is, about His great plan to make us His children 4 Things Which Save Us

 

Without the Spirit we cannot comprehend Godís spiritual plan which is only written in the context of the entire Bible (Gen-Rev). Our human minds are physical not spiritual, and our human reason cannot understand or fathom the spiritual words or concepts about our Godís plan to save us. Only when the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in our hearts, will we have the faith to believe in our God, and only with the Spiritís help can we understand and follow our Fatherís spiritual plan of salvation.

*and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. 1Co 2:4-5 NASB+

*for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Phil 2:13 NKJV+

 

The Bible was written by men chosen by God, as they were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The complete context within Bible (Gen-Rev) alone reveals our Fatherís plan of salvation to save any who would love Him above all things, and because we loved Him we would obey His commands.††

*for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2Pe 1:21 NKJV+

*which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. Eph 3:5 ESV+

 

Only when we understand the absolute spiritual truths in the Bible, can we understand the spiritual plan of our Heavenly Father; and then begin to understand what physically has, is, or will happen in the physical world we live in.

 

We must understand our Godís spiritual plan so we can accept both the good and the evil physical events that have happened and will happen on earth. We must study, learn, and know our Godís spiritual plan of salvation in the Bible, to know what physically has, is and will happen here on earth. So we can accept our status in this physical world, and resist its temptations. Knowing there is a far greater spiritual reward in Heaven.

*But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, "Why have you made me like this?" Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor? Ro 9:20-21 NKJV+

*Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man of My purpose from a far country. Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it. Isa 46:11 NASB+

*And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Ro 8:28 NKJV+

 

No one can understand the absolute spiritual truths in Godís spiritual plan in the Bible, without God giving us the ability to understand them. Godís truths in the Bible cannot be understood or comprehended by human intelligence or reasoning; nor can one understand Godís spiritual plan by using other historical books/writings, science, astrology, archeology, or any other physical means. God only gives His spiritual truths to those who will love Him above all things and obey His commands; makes our spiritual beings (soul and spirit) holy, so we can be His holy children.

*And He said, "To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables, that 'Seeing they may not see, And hearing they may not understand.' Lk 8:10 NKJV+

*This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words. 1Co 2:13 NIV+

*for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2Pe 1:21 NKJV+

*which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit. Eph 3:5 ESV+

 

#Example trying to understand spiritual story with literal physical understanding of our human knowledge

Using human knowledge, in the physical world, the Romans killed Jesus to pacify an angry crowd led by the leaders of the Jewish Synagogue. The Romans soldiers whipped and then hung Jesus on a cross until He died.

*Then the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders of the people assembled at the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, and plotted to take Jesus by trickery and kill Him. Matt 26:3-4 NKJV+

*"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He will rise again." Matt 20:18-19 NKJV+

 

But this is not the spiritual truth, what really happened, what really matters. No one killed Jesus, no one has that power. The spiritual truth is Jesus willingly died to save us. He willingly gave His life as the only sacrifice that the Father would accept as atonement for our sins. The Father merely used the evil in those who crucified Jesus to physically implement, complete His plan of salvation to save believers.

*Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels? How then could the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must happen thus?" Matt 26:53-54 NKJV+

*and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Eph 5:2 NIV+

 

Spiritual truths alone explain the physical actions that have or will occur on earth. We must always look for the spiritual truths that are written, that are prophesized in Godís Word. They alone define what is physically happening on earth. Spiritual truths alone give us the strength and courage to persevere until Jesus comes to take us home to Heaven.

*However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. Ro 8:9 NASB+

*In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, Eph 1:13 NKJV+

 

Our human knowledge will continually increase, helping believers understand the Bible. Computers can now help us search through the Bible, put it in context. When this advanced technology is truthfully used, it merely confirms the spiritual truths in the Bible, and helps show us how these spiritual truths physically have and will happen.††

*"But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase." Da 12:4 NASB+

*And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, Col 1:10 NIV+

 

The Bible is where we spiritually receive the peace to endure the trials and troubles of the world we live in.

*Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Jn 14:27 NKJV+

*"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." Jn 16:33 NASB+

 

We must grow in the Word accepting these new truths as revealed. Growing up spiritually, accepting the spiritual truths of the Word. Although these truths will go against societyís values, and redefine long held traditions held within congregations.

*Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly--mere infants in Christ. I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 1Co 3:1-2 NIV+

*Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Ro 12:11 NIV+

 

Always searching for the real truths in the Bible, whatever they may be. Not accepting feel good half-truths from society or from congregational traditions which many members feel comfortable with; but with reality, the truth of the words in the Bible. For truth alone will set us free, keep us one with Christ.

*Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Jn 8:31-32 NKJV+

*As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, Eph 4:14-15 NASB+

 

Using the gifts our God has given us to the fullest of our ability. As we tell all about our Savior, using the spiritual truths in the Bible.

*you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ 1Pe 2:5 NKJV+

*Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; Ro 12:6 NKJV+

 

While always realizing Godís words in the Bible are not just words, but the gospel of eternal life. A spiritual power given us by our God, that enables us to know and love Him, become His children. And as Godís children, we will never be separated from His love.

*how that our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, 1Thes 1:ptn5 ASV

*For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ro 8:38-39 ASV
