History Sounds And Opportunity Abounds!

During Jesus' Ministry, He sent out 70 witnesses of Himself to do evangelism (Luke 10:1-20). All these Disciples of His were of differing strengths and weaknesses of His 360 degree merits of One Whole Unbroken Complexity! Today He has favorably placed various virtues and graces within each one that has taken breath from Him at birth. Have you found this to be so with your soul-self? Everyone has at least one to multiples with additions ongoing. If wanting your share, you still have the availability of His Quickening Spirit to catch-up! Jesus clearly stated: "... the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen [all the time at any given time]." Matt. 20:16 [lps]. Everyone has virtues and/or graces whether of being churched or unchurched; as all are in the Prevenient Grace of God - invited to become Born-Anew in the Grace of the Holy Spirit's Presence; growing and becoming the Righteousness of Jesus Christ; then grow onto the Holiness of the Heavenly Father as their Abba Father's delight!

Because God Says "I Am That I Am" - You Can Too! Hallelujah!

The following is a list of 70 modern 21st Century possible mutational Nuances of God's Presence dwelling within us - as He occupies a part of Himself within each individual. Therefore, none need to be a back-up-stasis needlessly, toward extending their own indwellings, while others share themselves reciprocatory towards building up each other and one another. Do you have unclaimed potential? Opportunity abounds much further than these listed here!

All humankind have a spirit and each has a body; but the crux or should we say, the flux of what matters is whether or not the spirit has been sanctified by the Supernatural Ability of God to making our spirits not only just, but perfect (mature). See Hebrews 12:23. Thus making these 70 nuance giftings fitted for the praise, honor and glory of God.

In the Old Covenant, the male flesh had to be circumcised to be attributive of being a real Jew. But in the New Covenant, the spirit is circumcised, meaning: set apart for God's Workmanship in making the natural spirit of God's Supernatural Ability a readiness to serving Him in sanctioning the circumcised spirit committedly as His Property and becoming New Israelites. Thus, these 'nuance giftings' are of His Workmanship within our dedicated souls as well; and having our cleansed bodies as God's Instrumental Sanctuary inhabiting us. To bring this all into proper perspective, we quote from God's Infallible Word: "So, brothers, what should you do? When you meet together, one person has a song. Another has a teaching. Another has a new truth from God. Another speaks in a different language, and another person interprets that language. The purpose of all these things should be to help the church (or Body Of Believers) grow strong. When you meet together, if anyone speaks in a different language, then it should be only two, or not more than three, who speak. They should speak one after the other. And someone else should interpret what they say. But if there is no interpreter, then anyone who speaks in a different language, should be quiet in the church meeting. He should speak only to himself and to God....But God's grace has made me what I am. And his grace to me was not wasted. I worked harder than all the other apostles. (But I was not really the one working. It was God's grace that was with me.)" 1 Cor. 14:26-28; 2 Cor. 15:10 (EB) [lps].

Whether you have loved religiosities or churchianities, corrected politics or uncorrected policies; it is better to have loved and failed, than not to have loved at all - similar to the Samaritan woman Jesus confronted at the well who had been married five times, and the man she was then living with was not her husband (John 4:7-30). She discovered that Jesus could/would/should make her a transformation and to be non-failing following His wisdom in further discovering His Understanding and Knowledgeable Truth ... bearing along His Humble Way ... and More Abundant Spiritual Life!! Another woman, Mary Magdalene was entirely freed from the ritual performances of man-made misshapen legalism; and responded to the invitation to put on Christ and His Sovereign Grace; thus receiving a New Beginning from her past; taking in these acronyms Supernaturally in succession!

Despotic totalitarian control of some organizationings is aptly described by Paul Tillick, an American Theologian: "All forms of totalitarianism try to avoid the strange, the problematic, the critical, the rational. To do so, they must deny the metropolitan spirit, equalize everything in city and country, and retain a center which is not the center of anything because everything else is swallowed up by it." How true this statement is - because absolute authority corrupts and corrupts absolutely!!

Thoughts To Ponder

If you were to construct a building for corporal worship, what kind would you build, and how big would it have to be since Scripture says: "Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?" Acts 7:49.

Could your building - or any other building, or buildings - be able to contain such a Majestic and Holy Almighty Sovereign God that said He made all the things from which men make buildings for themselves?? On the other hand, if you are not a 'church goer,' do you believe you have some personal 'bragging rights in the Lord' as do any and all corporate worshipers of having 'gifts of nuances from on High'?

Grace is unmerited favor - causing Jesus Christ to enable you to be and do that which you, by being subjective to Him alone and which you cannot accomplish on your own in having His virtues and graces. You can never be too bad to eliminate His Sovereign Grace; nor can you do anything so good as to deserve it!! There is only one sin that is unforgivable and leads to spiritual death - the sin against the Holy Spirit and His ultimate, untimely rejection (Matthew 12:31)!

Be assured, dear reader, you can have as many "I Am's" as your heart enlarges to receive! And the more abundant life of God's spiritual adjoinments will allow you to experience His Good Pleasure with you, and to understand with wisdom and knowledge the Way, Truth, and Life flowing from the Throne of Heaven. Keep pondering God, because He promises to keep you in perfect peace all the while of each and every day. See Luke 9:23-24.
