Judge not lest you be judged

Jesus reveals the Father.  Jesus shows us the nature and character of God.  Jesus is God and is the way to God.  Jesus is the truth about God.  Jesus is the life of God expressed in the perfect human form.  Jesus is the Love of God expressed in perfect harmony with the triune nature of…

Inside out

John 14:20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. In the last few posts I’ve tried to reveal our upside down thinking.  In our fallen way of thinking we perceive a g.o.d. that is not the Abba that Jesus reveals.  Nobody knew…

Upside down thinking

Jesus came to deal with and save us from our fallen nature.  Contrary to popular opinion that wasn’t an effort to make us feel more guilty about a bunch of behavioral and moral issues in our lives.  His purpose wasn’t to “bring to our attention” a more in-depth and higher fidelity understanding of the sin…

Undeniable Incarnate Inclusion

Before the incarnation we had no internal intimate union with the divine triune Perfection. Now we can know God like Jesus and experience God like Jesus and be loved by God like Jesus and be an anointed son like Jesus. This is what Jeremiah was talking about. Heb 10:15 And the Holy Spirit also bears witness…

Witnessing the “wrath of God?”

Have you witnessed the “wrath of God?”  I think I have.  The wrath of God is what happens when human violence meets God’s forgiveness. It is when human anger meets eternal life. It is when human vengeance meets God’s goodness. It is when human justice meets God’s redemption. It is when Faith in WHAT we know meets Faith in WHO we know.…
