good works without th gospel…

Sailing_Into_the_Sun
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
 
th light gives light to all that are in th house…not to just anyone, not to just everyone…but to those who are in th house…and those who see good works (even th pharisees, tho blind, saw Jesus heal and deliver and Jesus reminded them of His works when they accused Him) and glorify our Father…th world dont see Christ, He said so, but His disciples DO see Himand hearHim…th world is in darkness and deep darkness is over th ppl, but in th house of th Lord is light (Christ in us, bc Christ is th light of th world) — and gives light to all who are in th house…
 
let ur light so (in this way) shine…God so (in this way) loved th world, that He gave…
 
th Lord been talkin to me about how His promise is that He will give us a new heart–not new circumstances–while ppl wanna change circumstances and judge much by circumstances (who is cursed, who is blessed, what ppl need, etc)…this last is good works without th gospel…bc its not Spirit led, but led by flesh…it dont proceed from th Father, it is earthy sensual and totally of flesh…th fruit of th tree of death looks good but isnt; th fruit of th Spirit is good but will never look good to flesh…
 
doesnt mean circumstances wont change…they often do…but circumstances are outward and their change dont indicate a changed heart…
 
when we see good works without th gospel, what we see is ppl tryna change circumstances apart from Christ, bein led by th spirit of this world and not by th Spirit of God…
 
th gospel isnt words, its th Lord Jesus Christ Himself…He is th good news of God…th possibility of new life, salvation, cleansing, forgiveness and more…He is th good news that God is with us, that God hasmade His abode with men, IN men…th final temple chosen by God–th new born of th Spirit of God where th Spirit indwells and remains…
 
we know that while we were yet enemies God sent His only begotten Son…
 
what we forget is HOW Christ was sent…by birth…born of th Spirit (Word of God sent, born of a virgin, th woman conceived th Word was spoken/she was commanded [as th widow and elijah] , th Word was given)He is our example, th firstfruits…Christ is sent by birth, specifically, a new birth, not of flesh or of men or a husband’s will…bein born of th Spirit of God is how Christ is sent…therefore, He doesnt trail behind a buncha good works as tho th works ppl do pave a way fa Him to follow after; He dont show up, after or bc of th works…He is first…
 
He was always with God and was God…its not Him who had to be born, and false doctrines abound which say tht Jesus Christ was th first born again…thats a lie…but so that we who must be born of th Spirit, could be born of th Spirit, this is how God came into th world in th form of a man…our example…th firstfruits…th first among many brethren…
 
we often see ppl doin fleshly thangs and callin it christ…dealin with th outward and thinkin if they ‘preach’ (or rather ‘speak’) th gospel, that they are doin th work of th Lord…but man cant preach Christ, only th Spirit of God can reveal Him…Christ preached that we must be born again…Here was th gospel of God  preaching th new creation…so that th new creation, by th indwelling Spirit of God, could one day preach Christ, th gospel of God…
 
He didnt reveal all what th cross would purchase; He didnt promise any christian nations or presidents or kings; He didnt spend a lotta time debatin world circumstances or th rights of jews in rome …He said we must be born again….He said we must be born of th Spirit and not of flesh; He said we must be born again or we cant enter into th Kingdom of God…and He who came into th world by birth, was our example, was proof it could be and would be…was proof of what God was doin…God came into th world in th form of a man, th man Christ Jesus…
 
bc th Good News is Christ, its a false doctrine that says men can preach th gospel; bc th Good News of God is Jesus Christ–HIM–and only th Spirit of God can preach Him…th gospel isnt a buncha sentences strung together to ‘preach Christ’…th gospel IS th Lord JEsus Christ…He is th good news of God…He is sent…and He isnt a book, a prayer, a ritual or a religion…He is th Lord…th only righteous one…and He came into th world by birth, our example of birth by th Spirit of God–not of flesh or a husband’s will but by th Spirit…
 
so that whatever is done apart from Him, even tho they say Lord Lord, He will say, away from me u workers of iniquity…i never knew you…if it proceeds from th Spirit of God, its Spirit and without sin; if it proceeds from flesh its flesh and is iniquity…
 
see?  Christ IN us is th hope of glory…not any works that ppl do apart from th leadin of th Spirit of God…
 

religion deals with th outward…it judges what must be done, whats lackin, by whats seen; ministries are built and named to change circumstances…th pharisees also walked by sight…they knew th letter but not th Spirit…those who are IN Christ have th Spirit and walk by faith–which is Christ alone…

 
Jesus said apart from Him they are workers of iniquity…bc they are apart from Him…thats th different…those in Christ are moved by th Spirit of God…those apart from Christ are moved by th spirit of this world…th spirit of this world works iniquity…so dont matter what it looks like or what ppl tryna accomplish, if its apart from Christ, its iniquity…
 
theres always been a differnt between flesh and Spirit and always war between em…th natural man cant receive th thangs of God bc they are Spiritually discerned…and th new creation cant walk by sight…two different creations…th old born of th flesh and remains flesh…th new born of th Spirit and remains spirit…
 
while we were yet enemies (th old man; flesh striving against th Spirit of God) of God, God sent (by th new birth) His only begotten Son, that whoever believes on Him shall not perish but shall have eternal life…see? to believe…its not some mental assent or agreement…th Lord told me long ago, believin means Be Livin…our life is in Christ, it  IS Christ and He increases IN us…
 
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! Romans 10:14-15
 
there is only one way…by th new birth–bein born of th Spirit…Christ (th preacher) is sent by birth…its not enough fa men to talk about who Christ is, and what He did and how He lived and died and is risen and lives forever…Christ must be sent–there must be a new birth, bc th natural man cant receive th thangs of God…

        Hey, cool. If we both keep our eyes and hearts on Christ and the Kingdom (within), we can continue to sharpen one-another as well as the true brethren. God bless you.

    I love that.. HE is the One whom was sent.. the One the Father gave us, not any other hireling, but the Good Shepherd who has come for all His sheep and won’t lose one.. and yess.. not a mental agreement with the natural (fleshly) mind.. but to be-live.. to live the real, because God is true. It is the Spirit that testifies of Christ, and not of self.. but only Christ. Christ IS the Gospel, amen.. people say “the gospel OF Christ”.. as a fair speech shown to men.. but Christ Himself IS the Gospel, that God is come in the Son, and we are in Him.
