If you want to know the depth of you love for a person listen to the words you speak concerning that one. Your word is a vocal expression of your love and your deeds are a physical expression of it.

 

Everything in the earth is for man and through him. As death came by his so did the resurrection come by him; that is the man Jesus.

 

1 Corinthians 15:21

21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.NKJV

 

This is God’s vocal and physical expression of his love for mankind.

 

John 3:16-17

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.NKJV

The church is where God lives. If God lives in the Church, should there be evidence that He lives there? If so, what kind of evidence should there be?

 

When God the Holy Spirit came to dwell in the Church on the day of Pentecost it was with audible, visual and vocal evidence.

 

Acts 2:1-4

2 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. NKJV

 

There should be something supernatural taking place in the Church because God is living in the Church.

Jesus trusted his humanity to the word of God and the Holy Spirit. He was the word that became flesh with the limitations of the flesh. He cast himself upon God through the word concerning himself.

Psalm 22:10

10 I was cast upon you from birth. From My mother's womb you have been My God.NKJV

Hebrews 10:5-7

5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you have prepared for Me. 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you had no pleasure. 7 Then I said, 'Behold, I have come —In the volume of the book it is written of me — to do your will, O God.'" NKJV

There are several reasons why Jesus became a part of humanity. 1. He had to partake of human nature so he could identify with us in our weaknesses. 2. He had to become one with mankind so he could overcome sin in humanity. 3. He had to have a human body so it could be offered as a sacrifice for sin.

Hebrews 2:17-18

17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted. NKJV

 

Genesis 6:5-6

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. KJV

Genesis 6:6-7

6 So the Lord was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart. NLT

The foreknowledge of God was aware of what man finally did; however when the act was committed it broke God’s heart and he was grieved because man had been torn from him. You can know a loved one is going to do something; however when the act is done you are hurt more by the act than the knowledge of it being done. This is how it was with God.

Romans 2:28-29

28) For He is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; 29) but He is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God. NKJV

Circumcision is a type of the New Birth. When circumcision was performed something of the person was cut off. What was cut off was no longer a part of the person who was circumcised. When a person is born again something of the person is cut off and no longer a part of the person born again. The New Birth cuts off the old spirit that contained the nature of Satan which is sin and death; and a new spirit is given with the nature of God which is life and righteousness.

Mark 11:22

And Jesus answering saith to them, “Have faith of God.” YLT 

Jesus cursed the barren fig tree and when he was asked how it dried up so soon he told them to have faith in God. Dr. Young’s gives the statement like this; have faith of God.

To have the faith of God mean to have the faith that comes from God; because just to have faith in God will not cause a fig tree to die or a mountain to move.

The faith to curse the fig tree comes from God; that is God told Jesus to curse the fig tree.

This agrees with what Jesus said in John 5:19.

 John 5:19

Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. NKJV

Some people will entertain the idea that it is no use in trying to live a godly life. If one can change the certainty of eternity and cease to be a spirit being then that is a good idea; if not, it is a foolish one and must be avoided.

John 17:1-4

God wants us to know him; if we know anyone it should be the one who created us and redeemed us.

17 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: "Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, 2 as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. 3 And this is eternal life that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. 4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. NKJV

All that man needs for his physical life was placed in the earth. The body of man connects him with the earth. All that he needed for his spiritual life is in heaven. In order to partake of man’s spiritual need he must be connected to heaven.
