We are living in the best of times and the worst of times.
This new generation of adopted sons and daughters of Christ cannot be held back! No man made temples of stone and brick can corner the market on the “ next move of God”.
Romans 8 says…. “NOW THEREFORE, there is NO CONDEMNATION TO those who are IN…” IN,, I repeat… “IN CHRIST JESUS who walks after the SPIRIT and not the flesh…..”
Let me explain….
You see, to be family members (naturally speaking) takes a genetic connection. But to be adopted is a (choosing) and an acceptance of that choice — for there to be a bond.
But when you walk in the spirit, (believe without doubting and accepting that the things that are unseen are far more stronger and real than the things you can see) you will be able to accept your place of adoption to the GODHEAD. Jesus made the way!
You accept that you are no longer an orphan.
No church can make you “feel” adopted; only the GODHEAD, (all three distinct characteristics of God)… separate yet one.
No amount of works you do can make you feel privileged enough to belong.
There are so many wailing believers that teach people that you are in sin if you don’t go to church.
That isn’t the point that should be driven.
The truth needed to be taught is that Christ came, died, and resurrected and is coming back for “you”, will you not accept your inheritance?
Fear brings condemnation. It also brings alienation… those that condemn don’t know the truth and it is not in them.
Come to the table… just as you are.. allow HOLY SPIRIT to do what only HE can…,, convict the world of sin AND welcome you into a life in CHRIST.
