REALITY IS ONLY IN CHRIST, AND NOT IN WHAT WE SEE, HEAR, SMELL. TASTE OR TOUCH IN THE PHYSICAL REALM; NEITHER IN HOW WE FEEL, OR OUR EMOTION IN THE PSYCHOLOGICAL REALM, BUT THE TRUE REALITY IS THE SPIRIT, AND THE SPIRIT IS THE LORD. John:14:6 Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me. THE WORD OF GOD IS THE REALITY, BECAUSE THE WORD OF GOD IS OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. JOHN:17:17 Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by the Truth; Your Word is Truth. THAT IS WHY WE ARE IMPLORED AND BESEECH AS A RIGHTEOUS OF GOD TO LIVE AND BEING GOVERNED ONLY BY FAITH. 2Cor:5:7 For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting mans relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight {or} appearance. 4:18 Since we consider {and} look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless {and} everlasting. WE CANT DO ANYTHING PLEASING TO GOD WITHOUT CHRIST. John:15:1-6: I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses {and} repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more {and} richer {and} more excellent fruit. You are cleansed {and} pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you]. Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned. IN CHRIST ALONE IS THE EMBODIMENT OF ALL THE ATTRIBUTES OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER GOODNESS, SO WITHOUT CHRIST IN ANYONES LIFE, THERE IS WAY TO BENEFIT IN THE GOODNESS OF GOD. Col:1:19 For it has pleased [the Father] that all the divine fullness (the sum total of the divine perfection, powers, and attributes) should dwell in Him permanently. 2:9-10:For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. And you are in Him, made full {and} having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead--Father, Son and Holy Spirit--and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. THIS WORLD IS FULL OF DARKNESS, BUT IN CHRIST IS THE LIGHT THAT OUST ALL THE WORK OF KINGDOM OF DARKNESS. John:1:4-5: In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it]. 8:12 Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life. IN CHRIST ALONE THE TRUE PEACE CAN BE FOUND, AND NOT IN THE MATERIAL THINGS OF THE WORLD. John:16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace {and} confidence. In the world you have tribulation {and} trials {and} distress {and} frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] 14:1 DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in {and} adhere to {and} trust in {and} rely on God; believe in {and} adhere to {and} trust in {and} rely also on Me.14:27 Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give {and} bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] IN CHRIST ALONE ETERNAL LIFE CAN BE FOUND, NOTHING ELSE COULD PROVIDE ETERNAL LIFE. 1John:5:10-13: He who believes in the Son of God [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] has the testimony [possesses this divine attestation] within himself. He who does not believe God [in this way] has made Him out to be {and} represented Him as a liar, because he has not believed (put his faith in, adhered to, and relied on) the evidence (the testimony) that God has borne regarding His Son. And this is that testimony (that evidence): God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who possesses the Son has that life; he who does not possess the Son of God does not have that life. I write this to you who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) the name of the Son of God [in the peculiar services and blessings conferred by Him on men], so that you may know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that you [already] have life, yes, eternal life. IT IS APPOINTED FOR MAN TO DIE, AND AFTER DEATH IS JUDGMENT, BUT WHOSOEVER THAT HAS CHRIST IN THEIR LIVES WILL NEVER INCUR THE WRATH JUDGEMENT OF GOD, BUT A LIFE WITHOUT CHRIST IS ALREADY CONDEMNED. John:3:17-18: For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation {and} be made safe {and} sound through Him. He who believes in Him [who clings to, trusts in, relies on Him] is not judged [he who trusts in Him never comes up for judgment; for him there is no rejection, no condemnation--he incurs no damnation]; but he who does not believe (cleave to, rely on, trust in Him) is judged already [he has already been convicted and has already received his sentence] because he has not believed in {and} trusted in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [He is condemned for refusing to let his trust rest in Christs name.] John:5:24 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the person whose ears are open to My words [who listens to My message] and believes {and} trusts in {and} clings to {and} relies on Him Who sent Me has (possesses now) eternal life. And he does not come into judgment [does not incur sentence of judgment, will not come under condemnation], but he has already passed over out of death into life. A LIFE WITHOUT CHRIST WILL BE FULL OF CRISIS. EVERYTHING EVOLVE AROUND OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, HIM ALONE IS THE REALITY. John:11:25-26: Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live; And whoever continues to live and believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, and relies on) Me shall never [actually] die at all. Do you believe this? JESUS CHRIST IS OUR TRUE WISDOM, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, AND OUR REDEMPTION. 1Cor:1:30 But it is from Him that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin]. OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST IS THE CAPTAIN OF OUR SALVATION.Acts:4:12 And there is salvation in {and} through no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by {and} in which we must be saved. Heb:2:10 For it was an act worthy [of God] {and} fitting [to the divine nature] that He, for Whose sake and by Whom all things have their existence, in bringing many sons into glory, should make the Pioneer of their salvation perfect [should bring to maturity the human experience necessary to be perfectly equipped for His office as High Priest] through suffering. 1Cor:16:22 If anyone does not love the Lord [does not have a friendly affection for Him and is not kindly disposed toward Him], he shall be accursed! Our Lord will come! (Maranatha!)
