CHAPTER  17 (1 of 8)
OBEDIENCE,  
BEING ONE WITH GOD
Many Christians, not all, have experienced "walking in the Spirit" at one time or another, during their lifetime in Christ.  The problem, with the majority of the Saints, who have experienced this deep walk with Christ, is they have not continued in it.  Rather, they became "forgetful hearers," in turn causing them to fall back into "nominal-Christianity," such Christianity that is extremely displeasing to God, and continually grieves the Holy Spirit...who we are commanded not to grieve, (Eph. 4:30).
The Lord has shown me that 90%, more or less, of the true born-again believers, are not walking in heavenly places in Christ.  They think, just because they are endeavoring to press toward the mark, or endeavoring to live for Christ, or trying to draw closer to God, or drawing closer to God, they are walking in heavenly places, or just by virtue of the fact that they are Christians.   When in reality, they are missing the "mark", and don't even realize it.  According to Ephesians 5:14 they are asleep, dead, and without light.  (Not without Christ, for they are definitely saved, but without light). 
Those who walk in heavenly places in Christ are not trying to get closer to God, but they are actually and altogether close to God, One with Him and He One with us, ".... but he that is joined unto the Lord is one Spirit...  1 Cor. 6:17."  Paul the Apostle continually walked in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.  Those who are close to God, they who are continually one with Him, are those who "press" toward the mark, and are those who in all truth "die daily."   What do those who truly "die daily," die daily to, all of their desires and affections?
And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts (desires)If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the SpiritGalatians 5:24-25
-
Notice, it is possible to live in the Spirit, but not walk in the Spirit.  Those who have crucified the flesh are those who walk in the Spirit.  Those  Saints who live after their own will, whether in part or totally, to please or fulfill some or all of their desires, live in the Spirit, but seldom, if at all, walk the Spirit.  The Saints who commit sin are not walking 100% of the time in the Spirit, although they live in the Spirit.
-
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin;  for His seed remaineth in him;  and he cannot sin, because he is born of God1 John 3:9
-
Those who continually walk 100% of the time in the Spirit do not commit sin.
Satan and his devils are angry about what is written herein, and for what I have set myself to do, to expose a truth that is desperately needed and expected by God, to be accomplished and followed in the life of every Saint of God.  The major majority of Saints have been lullabied into a spiritual slumber of self-deception to the point where, they think they understand what I am trying to tell them.  What I am trying to convey is extremely deep and spiritual, Only those who are in all reality and truth, "pressing toward the mark," as Paul did, can truly understand what I am writing about.
This doctrine is so little known or understood by the major majority of Saints and Preachers today, that it can almost be labeled a lost doctrine of the very heart of the epistles and books of the New Testament. Listen to what is said of Jesus:
-
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8
Although Jesus as the Son of God is perfect, Jesus the Son of Man had to learn obedience (Hebrews 5:8), and be made perfect (Hebrews 2:10).  The way He accomplished this was by "dying daily," (everyday, all His life), to His own will and desires, to do the Father's will only.  Why was Jesus' life a sinless life?   Not only because He is the Son of God, but also for the reason that, "He humbled Himself and became obedient."  
What Jesus learned as the Son of Man, He passed on to us, through His "holy apostles and prophets" in the New Testament; but the eyes of the Saints have been blinded by the drive to fulfill some or all of their own ambitions and desires, rather than all and only God's.  The major majority of Christians (90% more of less) are so blinded, because of their own will, that they miss this truth in their daily reading and study of the scriptures.  They think they understand what they read, but in reality, they are blind and without light, I'm not talking about religious folk, I'm talking about true, everyday, born again believers... Christians. 
-
I was also blinded, but now I can truly see, and with this sight has come a unity and oneness with Christ and Father, that very few Saints have experienced.  Yet, it is within the reach of every one of us, if only we will seek the revealing of this truth from God, then receive it and run with it, (pursue it with all our life, Mark 12:30).  This is a dying that others might live.  What others, those who are without Christ and dead in trespasses and sin; but not only they, the brethren also?
-

The Lord has shown me, that there are sinners who will never give their lives to Jesus, except we lead them into salvation.  The Lord has revealed to me that, by our disobedience, instead of totally dying out to "self," we hinder, and possibly could prevent them from ever giving their life to Christ.  How disturbing!  This means, our disobedience to the "perfect will of God" could, and may have already caused, a soul to perish in hell forever, with their blood being required at our hands.  Anything less than obeying God's "perfect will" is total disobedience, rebellion, and sin.

My FaceBook Timeline https://www.facebook.com/samuel.siders ; some of the responses I have posted in answer to those who God has had me to shared with on AolAnswers and FaceBook can be on my FaceBook Timeline spanning over seven years.
-
My activity about sharing the Word of God with Muslims continues; this open door that the Lord has made available to me as an apologist is one where worldwide opportunities are made available (all English speaking people around the world from many different countries, races, and religious beliefs). It is WRITTEN in 1 Peter 3:15…” But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" God wants us to know AND understand His Word (2 Timothy 2:15).

DEFENSE FOR THE “ARCHKO VOLUME”  http://www.scribd.com/doc/76537136/A-Definite-Appraisal-of-the-ArchkoVolume-Hubert-Luns, and http://www.cumberland.org/hfcpc/minister/MahanWilliamDennes.htm

This past week opened up some discussions, a continued one with a man name Mike, who refuses to accept the Scripture references I shared with him that validate OSAS and the Eternal Security doctrines are false, and with a few who believe all Israelis are black Africans labeled Negroes, thereby making Jesus and all His Apostles black men. Genesis makes is clear all black skin people descended fro Ham and NONE from Shem, except through intermarriage. Rastafarians are the common name for these, but there are variant cults, who deny being Rasta’s even though the beliefs are similar.
-
One of Satan’s biggest lies against the Bible is that the Scriptures have been purposely altered and corrupted; those who … ARE NOT … Born Again by God’s Spirit are EASY PREY to this lie. God’s New Birth … Proves … the Scriptures are True and anything contrary to the Content is a lie and deception of Satan. Scripture Integrity is an exhaustive discussion, but the FACTS prove purposeful corruption is FALSE.  Any transmission errors that cannot be corrupted are estimated at less than one percent, and these have NO impact on doctrine and theology.
-
I have share with many who believe that deception, that if the Bible was my sole foundation for truth I could easily be deceived by you, but since God’s New Birth and the Baptism with His Spirit to do miracles is, you will NEVER deceive me to believe your lie. Like Jesus said, about the last days, “If it were possible even the very elect would be deceived.” What makes it not possible are the Proofs Jesus said we would receive, “God’s New Birth and the Baptism with His Spirit.”  
-
As an Apologist God has exposed me to some of the most sophisticated lies and deceptions of Satan that exist (Caesar’s Messiah is one of them), and without God’s New Birth and the Baptism with His Spirit, a person can be swallowed whole by them. The Rastafarians and any variants are so engrained with deceptions of Satan that any proofs given to them that they are deceived are rejected as WHITE MAN deceptions and corruptions. The Bible, Archeological proofs, and historical facts are rejected; therefore there comes a point where any discussion with them must end, and in the Day of Judgment they will not be able to say they were not warned.     
-
A question was asked by one who follows my Timeline: “Why do we read and preach from Old Testament? What follows is the response I posted for them;
-
“”The OT is useful for multiple reasons. Jesus and the Apostles quoted the OT to prove Jesus is the promised Messiah who would die and resurrect for our sin to be forgiven, to teach the New Covenant Jesus came to consummate through His life, death, and resurrection, and for preaching Jesus to Israelis who claim the NT is myth. Israelis will only believe the OT is the Word of God; therefore it is necessary to know how to use it to preach Jesus to them like Jesus and the Apostles did. There is a lot about God’s personality and character in the OT that the NT only gives a small amount of information about in comparison. 
-
There are many more Scriptures in the OT to preach about Jesus from than the NT contains.  Some examples are Genesis 3:15 and Jeremiah 31:22 can be used with Isaiah 7:14 to validate the virgin birth and Genesis 24:16 can be used to validate Matthew 1:23 used Isaiah 7:14 correctly as a dual prophesy that a young woman can be a virgin. Isaiah 9:6-7 can be used to teach the Hypostatic Union of Jesus and His Father with v7 proving v6 is talking about the king of an everlasting kingdom; Rabbis teach v6 is talking about Hezekiah but Hezekiah died; therefore his kingdom is not everlasting, since Jesus resurrected and has a immortal body it is HE who can rule a kingdom forever.
-
Leviticus 26:11-12 can be used to prove Jesus is God, Genesis 3:8 and chapters 17 and 18 can be used to prove God transformed into a solid human man and John 1:14 that God “became” a solid human man using the body of Jesus to do it; therefore it is not impossible for God to become a man and He did it more than once. Jesus said He was the man Abraham saw in Genesis 18 as recorded in John 8:56-58. Jeremiah 31-33 and Ezekiel 36:26 define the New Birth. There are a lot more references than in this response, but it is obvious the OT is as necessary as the NT.”
-
I will end this editorial with two comments I posted about going Deep with God:
-
“I always share Go DEEP with Him, NOT Shallow. God's desire to Fellowship and have a Relationship with us is INSATIABLE!! [i.e. Rev 3:20]. It is through God's New Birth that He has made it possible, that instead of waiting for Him to come to us we can go to Him first and knock at the door of HIS throne room wanting to have fellowship with HIM.”
-
“In this life God has given to us to understand the mysteries, secrets, and deep things of God, but only if we go deep with Him and not shallow. When we go Deep with Him, live unto Him 1 Cor. 5:15; LOVE righteousness and Despise lawlessness Hebrews 1:9, there is a Fellowship and Relationship with Him that words cannot adequately describe. Thank God for emotions; it is that "oil of gladness above thy fellows" syndrome.”
