“I am not ashamed of the gospel: it is the Power of God for salvation to every one who has faith…for in it the righteousness of God is revealed through faith for faith; as it is written, ‘He who through faith is righteous shall live” Romans 1:16-17
The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all the ungodly who suppress the Truth, do not honor or give thanks to God, but become futile in their thinking; their sense-less minds are darkened. They claim to be wise but they exchange the glory of the Immortal God for images and idols. Therefore, God gives them up to the lust of their unredeemed hearts and they dishonor their bodies by ungodly sex, exchanging the Truth about God for lies and worshiping things of the creation instead of the Creator. Since they do not acknowledge God or his design for his human creation, they are given over to a base satanic mind and improper conduct, filled with demonic spirits of lust for same sex, animals, children, inanimate objects and every other satanic feeling that does not come from the Holy Spirit, and a holy, godly life in Christ and Christ in you, who gives us the desires of a pure heart given to God; the love, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, when we are transformed by the Mind of Christ renewing in us; no longer conforming to this world. Though most know God’s decree and design for living in the image and likeness of God through receiving Christ in you, they not only continue to conform to this world but approve of those who practice what is ungodly (Romans 1:16-32).
Marriage is to reflect the marriage between Christ Jesus and His Church, the Bride. Those who have “married” the beliefs of this world, are the harlot revealed in the Revelation of Christ Jesus (Revelation ch. 17 and 18). “The Bride makes herself ready” (Revelation 19:7) by coming to Christ and receiving Christ in you: gold refined by fire, white garment, and eye anointing to see (Revelation 3:5, 17-21).
Those who refuse or reject the Good News, are forced to live with the bad news apart from Christ in darkness and hopelessness and helplessness and anxiety and fear and depression and ungodly sorrow and doubt and the wavering, storm-tossed chaos of the double-minded who receive nothing of God (James 1:5-8).
“I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying of hands (the Holy Spirit and fire baptism of Jesus); for God did not give you a spirit of timidity or fear, but a spirit of Power and Love and a Sound Mind of self-control” 2 Timothy 1:6-7
“Do not conform to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of Christ’s Mind, that you may PROVE what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect…Be aglow in the Spirit” Romans 12:2, 11
“Do not quench the Spirit” 1 Thess 5:19
“We know that in EVERYTHING God works for good with those who love him, who are called to God’s Purpose. For those foreknown are predestined to be conformed to the image of the Son; Jesus is the First-Born among many brethren. And those predestined are called, justified, sanctified and glorified…If God is for us, none can be against us…giving us all things with Christ…nothing can separate us from the love of Christ…In Christ we are more than conquerers” Romans 8:28-39
“Those who conquer I grant to sit with me” Glorified Jesus in Revelation 3:21
“God pours His Love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit” Romans 5:5.
Children of wrath, following the spirit of this world, under the power of satan, live in ungodly lust, following the desires of this world’s redefining love (Ephesians 2:1-6). Jesus taught we must be born again OF God by both the Water of life and the Spirit of life; Holy Spirit and fire. “Out of God our Father’s Great Love, we are made alive together with Christ (by grace you are saved) and raises us up with Christ to sit with him in heavenly places” Ephesians 2:4-6
“KNOW the Love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be FILLED with all the fullness of God. Now to him who by the Power of work WITHIN US is able to do far more abundantly that all we ask or think, to God be the glory” Ephesians 3:19-21
