The Foundation






Isaiah 28:17 I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line. The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters will overflow the hiding place.



Christianity is like the man whom set out to build a lasting house, he sets the stones for his foundation, thinking they look perfect and level. Later he finds his judgments were not correct that he should of used a plumb line to test his work. When the Master comes he sets a measuring line upon the house and fines all is false from foundation to roof because the builder measure his work against his own standards of righteousness.


Jer.17:7 Blessed is the man who trusts in Yahweh, and whose trust Yahweh is. 17:8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, who spreads out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when heat comes, but its leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it? 17:10 I, Yahweh, search the mind, I try the heart, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.


Today we find in all major branches of Religion from Christianity into Hinduism a common thread connecting them all, do you know what that is? Well, shockingly, the same thread runs through government, and commerce, all parts of human society, which is the need to make people better in their flesh upon earth, to make themselves better workers, better citizen, better fathers, and mothers this is the goal of all religion, but its not unique to religion alone as some may think?


John 18:36 Jesus answered, "My Kingdom is not of this world. If my Kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, that I wouldn't be delivered to the Jews. But now my Kingdom is not from here."


John 17:15 I pray not that you would take them from the world, but that you would keep them from the evil one.


Here is something you may not know a fundamental stone of truth God measured his standard against, and not what we thinking we know or see, and what is that? It is God is not making us better people for the kingdoms of our world, or religions, nor the worlds businesses, he is however creating people new for his kingdom, which kingdom is given to his son Christ Jesus. Why does religion build better people for the world instead of God's Kingdom, its is very simple, here is a foundational truth found in our bibles since Adam's fall into sin.


Psalms 50:18 When you saw a thief, you consented with him, and have participated with adulterers.


Jeremiah 2:26 As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets;


If a man plunders riches, stealing them at night from a powerful king, what does he do with those stolen riches? He builds his own kingdom of equal power if he can? But his kingdom is stolen and built by unrighteous riches! This is true of all thieves they steal to build their own life, but still what is stolen has a rightful owner. If the owner, in this case a great king comes he will take back by force what is his, and the thief will be left in shame and humiliation in front of all those he has lyingly putting on a pretense of righteousness by stolen property.


Deuteronomy 24:7 If a man be found stealing any of his brothers of the children of Israel, and he deal with him as a slave, or sell him; then that thief shall die: so you shall put away the evil from the midst of you.


John 10:1 "Most certainly, I tell you, one who doesn't enter by the door into the sheep fold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.


Leveling the Foundation Stone


What if the person laying the first stone of their faith measure his or her works against a crooked instrument stolen riches? Than the whole project will be crooked, and not made straight, nothing will fit, and it will not be accepted by the standards of the person we are putting faith in. The first step is than critical, but not too hard, if we have not been deceived by our own judgment, blinded by our good intentions as riches for Christ Kingdom?


Revelation 16:15 "Behold, I come like a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his clothes, so that he doesn't walk naked, and they see his shame."


1 Corinthians 4:7 For who makes you different? And what do you have that you didn't receive? But if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?


Its much like the man reading many books on a subject, he is fired up to uses his knowledge to do his work that he is so well read in. But when he puts his hand to the task, he finds the knowledge is helpful but the truth of the work is much harder than the knowledge was to get, he enjoyed studying, but applying the knowledge was no fun at all! His own feelings deceived him to the truth of work, where knowledge actually becomes truth, and truth makes the knowledge a useful tool to produce something good.


Matt.7:24 "Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock. 7:25 The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn't fall, for it was founded on the rock.


Setting The First Stone of Our Faith


The first stone of our faith we build our house of faith upon is not hard to find or lay, its rather many find the application of truth hard, that is, the work. Christ is the foundation stone, there is no doubt of that. He is God's riches given us freely. He clearly and profoundly set the perfect example we are follow we are told from the start of our faith this plain and simple truth which measure all of our works.


1Cor.3:10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another builds on it. But let each man be careful how he builds on it. 3:11 For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ. 3:12 But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or stubble; 3:13 each man's work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will test what sort of work each man's work is.

3:14 If any man's work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward. 3:15 If any man's work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but as through fire.


2 Corinthians 10:12 For we are not bold to number or compare ourselves with some of those who commend themselves. But they themselves, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves, are without understanding.


Christ than is the perfect instrument we measure ourselves against, did you catch that? Not a religion, or some man, not even ourselves nor we think Christ to be like, but the truth of Christ just as he was upon earth. Did Christ lie, ever? No he did not, do we? Yes, we do in speech and in action daily sometimes because we are not the foundation stone, Christ is tried and tested as the standard we must all come up to? That is why he is the riches of God, we cannot steal those riches to build our kingdom in Christ name.


Romans 9:33 even as it is written, "Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and a rock of offense; and no one who believes in him will be disappointed."{Isaiah 8:14; 28:16}


That is why its called a house of our faith, not works of our flesh, but a standard of love and trust for a good righteous Father Jehovah God. Now once more, all religion, and not our faith is founded upon what? Improvement of the fallen flesh to make it more obedient, a better person to represent what? The tree it came from, in this case religion of this world for support of the tree.


1 Peter 3:21 This is a symbol of baptism, which now saves you--not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.


Romans 8:12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.


Romans 8:13 For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.


Subsequently, if your an honest person loving truth you must face some fundamental truths? 1.) are you comparing yourselves against religious standards, and/or faith in Christ? 2.) Which tree are you from the tree of your religion, or the tree God has planted for our eternal life, Christ Jesus?


Ephesians 4:13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a full grown man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;


2 Corinthians 10:12 For we are not bold to number or compare ourselves with some of those who commend themselves. But they themselves, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves, are without understanding.


There nothing wrong with wanting to be a better person, there nothing wrong with taking educational classes and programs to make ourselves a better person, but such programs are not salvation God offers you or me? The confusion is for many in religion is to boast about the progress made in their flesh, as being a better person because of their religion. Thinking because progress is made in understanding of scriptures they are being made a better person towards obedience of religious laws and rules gaining them salvation and are laying the correct stone of Christ. The approval of our faith does not come from flesh and blood at all, did you know that?


Romans 9:8 That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as a seed.


Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn't have the Spirit of Christ, he is not his.


1 John 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is God's testimony which he has testified concerning his Son.


However, each and every religion created by mankind can boast in the same fruits, do you know what that fruit is? All can state they have made better people for this world. Thus, It is important that you and me love truth, which means we are not in a competition with other religions pointing out their evil, while we think that we are closer to the truth because in some way we sin less than the other religious people do. This is a false concept that deceives many into religion rather than the Christ, why?


Matt.7:1 "Don't judge, so that you won't be judged.

7:2 For with whatever judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with whatever measure you measure, it will be measured to you. 7:3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but don't consider the beam that is in your own eye? 7:4 Or how will you tell your brother, 'Let me remove the speck from your eye;' and behold, the beam is in your own eye? 7:5 You hypocrite! First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother's eye.


Because false religion compares flesh and its works against other flesh and its works. Once again remembering that every branch of mankind creation from government into religion has these types of competition. However, such works are works of the flesh in beating some other branch of the same tree to boast in works of the flesh!


Proverbs 4:25 Let your eyes look straight ahead. Fix your gaze directly before you.


Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, which is the mother of us all.


Colossians 3:1 If then you were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God.


Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are on the earth.


My Kingdom No Part of The World


Did Christ set up a kingdom his follower could attend on earth? Did Christ set up a religion that they could do good works through to gain merit with God? No! Christian's must have faith in a Kingdom not part of this world, they do not walk by sight, or worship by sight, they worship in Spirit and truth on a very narrow road leading into life.


Matt.7:13 "Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter in by it. 7:14 How{TR reads "Because" instead of "How"} narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it.


To lay the first stone of Christ we ourselves must become no part of this world, sounds nice? Let us not be fooled religion has a billion and half reason to justify how to be part of this world, while not being part of this world by words. Yes, measuring their excuses against other flesh and its teachings. Did Christ lie? Was he part of this world or not? Did Christ come to reform this world into a better world, making better people to support Satan world?


1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.


1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world: your faith.


1 John 3:13 Don't be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.


Christ came to take out of this world people of faith for his invisible kingdom, not part of this world, called God's children. The flesh live by labels they state words from the bible while boasting in being a Christian's and living like the world and its lust! Such conduct is stolen riches causing our whole foundation to be false.


James 3:8 But nobody can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 3:9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who are made in the image of God. 3:10 Out of the same mouth comes forth blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.


Christ set our foundation stone, not some churches rationalization of not being of this world while making better people for this world. Christ is our stone we build upon on, Christ is our narrow road, how? If we lived as Christ tells us to live it is a very cramp narrow road that take all of this world lust and thoughts away from our mind, replacing it with Christ mind. In other words, our goals and thoughts are not of this world lust for gain, power, wealth, recognition all the things which Satan has stolen to build his kingdoms to oppose God's Kingdom.


1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, isn't the Father's, but is the world's.


Romans 12:2 Don't be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God.


Seeking First the Kingdom


Christ Kingdom will take care of its own, however, those taken for the kingdom of God will suffer to stay a citizen of Christ Kingdom upon this earth while in their flesh.


Matt. 6:31 "Therefore don't be anxious, saying, 'What will we eat?', 'What will we drink?' or, 'With what will we be clothed?' 6:32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 6:33 But seek first God's Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well. 6:34 Therefore don't be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day's own evil is sufficient.


Hebrews 5:7 He, in the days of his flesh, having offered up prayers and petitions with strong crying and tears to him who was able to save him from death, and having been heard for his godly fear.



Building Upon Unrighteous Ground


Romans 3:10 As it is written, "There is no one righteous; no, not one.


Are wheat Christian's of value to the wants and needs of our world? In other words, if there is a river that flows through all societies of mankind, what would it be? It would be a river of flesh, and its lust. Christ our example was of no value to this world, he did not support or give glory to it; have you noted that from reading your bible?


John 7:7 The world can't hate you, but it hates me, because I testify about it, that its works are evil.


John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn't recognize him.


John 6:63 It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.


Most Christian's assume what is taught them from a religion is truth, and continual to promote weeds teaching producing yet more weeds Christian's. Christ life was not his, it was not dedicated to the world or the lust of this world. Hence, Christ works were not for this world success, they were for God's Kingdom, did you know that? In other words, one could be the most successful person in the world claiming to have done great works for God and yet, not be known by Christ.



John 12:25 He who loves his life will lose it. He who hates his life in this world will keep it to eternal life.


John 10:38 But if I do them, though you don't believe me, believe the works; that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."


John 14:10 Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I tell you, I speak not from myself; but the Father who lives in me does his works.


Christ did not set up a religion to reform people into better citizens for the world governments, businesses, or their religions. The works of Christ are hated and unseen by this world, did you know that? Religion promotes flesh, it builds building, institutions, foundations, and all sorts of treasure upon earth, but Christ did not; our example. The apostles the foundation stones of the Jerusalem above not one of them started an institution to carry on good works after their death like the world does always!


Matthew 19:16 Behold, one came to him and said, "Good teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" 19:17 He said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but one, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandment.


Christ did the will of his Father in heaven, not one work was for this world system of things. Christ stated the truth, not knowledge twisted into worldly thinking. He told us that our treasure must be found in heaven and not upon this earth, did you know that? Once again Christ did not come to reform our world, but to bring us a new heavens and earth created new by God replacing the old unrighteous one.


Matthew 13:44 "Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.


Luke 12:21 So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."


2 Peter 3:13 But, according to his promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.


Building upon unrighteous ground, is to build upon mankind fallen condition treasures to support and make better people for this world to boast in the flesh for some group or institution rather that be government, religion or commerce. Those of Christ foundation do not boast in their flesh, but why?


2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves.


Psalms 44:8 In God we have made our boast all day long, we will give thanks to your name forever. Selah.


Philippians 2:16 holding up the word of life; that I may have something to boast in the day of Christ, that I didn't run in vain nor labor in vain.


Building Upon Righteousness


Can a human declare themselves righteous by a measuring line of their own efforts? They can if they are building upon unrighteous ground a treasure house for this world. God has set the foundation of all righteousness for his Kingdom, which is Christ Jesus. God did not build a Kingdom upon any human righteousness, he built a house upon faith which have been made righteous by his Son precious blood.


Hebrews 3:4 For every house is built by someone; but he who built all things is God.


Hebrews 3:6 but Christ is faithful as a Son over his house; whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the glorying of our hope firm to the end.


Romans 3:10 As it is written, "There is no one righteous; no, not one.


Romans 5:19 For as through the one man's disobedience many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the one, many will be made righteous.


Christ is our righteousness if we are in the house of God, we have no doubt about that precious stone of our faith. We build upon Christ life, is Christ life part of this world, and its projects, yes or no? The foundation must be correct or the whole house will be false and a lie upon the master arrival.


Amos 7:1 Thus the Lord Yahweh showed me: and behold, he formed locusts in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and behold, it was the latter growth after the king's harvest.

7:2 It happened that, when they made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said, "Lord Yahweh, forgive, I beg you! How could Jacob stand? For he is small." 7:3 Yahweh relented concerning this. "It shall not be," says Yahweh. 7:4 Thus the Lord Yahweh showed me and behold, the Lord Yahweh called for judgment by fire; and it dried up the great deep, and would have devoured the land.

7:5 Then I said, "Lord Yahweh, stop, I beg you! How could Jacob stand? For he is small." 7:6 Yahweh relented concerning this. "This also shall not be," says the Lord Yahweh. 7:7 Thus he showed me and behold, the Lord stood beside a wall made by a plumb line, with a plumb line in his hand. 7:8 Yahweh said to me, "Amos, what do you see?" I said, "A plumb line." Then the Lord said, "Behold, I will set a plumb line in the midst of my people Israel. I will not again pass by them any more.



No amount of good logic, human reasoning, wisdom of this world will change what God has laid for our salvation, the road is narrow and its is cramp very much so. God has not lied, if we refuse to build upon Christ our righteous, our house will come to a violent crashing end.


1Cor.1:28 and God chose the lowly things of the world, and the things that are despised, and the things that are not, that he might bring to nothing the things that are: 1:29 that no flesh should boast before God. 1:30 But of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption: 1:31 that, according as it is written, "He who boasts, let him boast in the Lord."{Jeremiah 9:24}


Matt.7:26 Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn't do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand.

7:27 The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell--and great was its fall."


Christ does not lie, he stated that all works outside of himself will perish at his coming to take what has been stolen from his Father Kingdom treasures. Let us remember Adam and Eve were created from within YHWH which should imply they were his fruits depending upon his life source for eternal life. So too are all in Christ his fruits of righteousness.


John 15:1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the farmer.

15:2 Every branch in me that doesn't bear fruit, he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit, he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 15:3 You are already pruned clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 15:4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can't bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. 15:5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. 15:6 If a man doesn't remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.


Being Made New!


If God is not reforming the kingdoms of our world, by his works in his Son Christ Jesus than is he reforming our flesh into a better persons for this world survival? No he is not! God is making “all things new” not some thing new, or part of things new, but all things new when it comes to this world and its lust and goals!


Daniel 2:45 Because you saw that a stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God has made known to the king what shall happen hereafter: and the dream is certain, and its interpretation sure.


Revelation 21:1 I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more.


New with God is not new with mankind and their thoughts. God's new is without sin, mankind new is making a sinful person a better person in this life upon this earth by uses of God's word. Mankind new is an education of some sort rather that be religion, government and/or commerce to be successful for this world. God new is killing our sinful flesh and making us new in Christ Jesus righteousness, that is, his life (Christ) which becomes our righteousness. God does not reform an old wineskin to put new wine of a righteous heavens and earth into. God does not take a bad tree having evil fruit upon it and declare it good like human do in all their ways!


Luke 5:37 No one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed.




God cuts down the bad tree, and its fruit so the good tree does not become corrupted by the evil tree seeds. God makes all things new, by faith in a Kingdom not part of this world, a bad tree cannot understand this wisdom of God. For a bad tree cannot love its enemies and do good towards them. A bad tree will lie about producing good fruit, by religious labels, but it cannot produce good fruit because its not created in Christ.


Matthew 3:10 "Even now the axe lies at the root of the trees. Therefore, every tree that doesn't bring forth good fruit is cut down, and cast into the fire.


The old tree compares itself against itself that is other flesh. The flesh competes in wars with other flesh, it defeats and kills its enemies for gain. But Christ gives his life for his brothers, he gives us freely his riches in heaven he became poor so we might gain riches in his Kingdom, legitimate riches not stolen. Christ produces only good fruit, no flesh (having both good and evil in it), or its thoughts of lust for gain in this world. Christ fruits are not of this world, nor is his kingdom from thoughts, or wisdom of this world.


Gal. 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won't fulfill the lust of the flesh. 5:17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire. 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness, 5:20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies, 5:21 envyings, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God. 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith,{or, faithfulness}

5:23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

5:24 Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. 5:25 If we live by the Spirit, let's also walk by the Spirit. 5:26 Let's not become conceited, provoking one another, and envying one another.


Trying to Mixing Evi into a Good Trees


Many Christian's have laid a stone, but not of Christ, they have some good and some evil fruit which is also found upon all mankind's system of things. They are deceived by good works. Yes, sadly, there are. God is not against good works no more so than mankind governments are against doing good works for others. But no government anywhere condones good works done by a drug dealers unrighteous gains that cost the lives of innocent people, as good for there citizens. Nor would they condone a evil government stealing their riches to build a counterfeit kingdom in their name.


Proverbs 17:13 Whoever rewards evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.


1 Peter 3:11 Let him turn away from evil, and do good. Let him seek peace, and pursue it.


Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to the good work, but to the evil. Do you desire to have no fear of the authority? Do that which is good, and you will have praise from the same,


Romans 13:4 for he is a servant of God to you for good. But if you do that which is evil, be afraid, for he doesn't bear the sword in vain; for he is a servant of God, an avenger for wrath to him who does evil.


Evil is evil even though it may do good works. The works of good does not condone the evil being practiced as a merit system with God, so he will turn a blind eye to the evil. like human do for some power, profit, and/or recognition.


James 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God," for God can't be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one.


God kills the evil, he does not reform the evil, God make new, into a new person (new tree) new person and personality. In other words, God does not mix good and evil calling it Christ righteousness, mankind does that, religion does that, government, and commerce does that, but not God!


1 Corinthians 5:6 Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast leavens the whole lump?


1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out the old yeast, that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, has been sacrificed in our place.


1 Corinthians 5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old yeast, neither with the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.


James 4:1 Where do wars and fightings among you come from? Don't they come from your pleasures that war in your members?

4:2 You lust, and don't have. You kill, covet, and can't obtain. You fight and make war. You don't have, because you don't ask.

4:3 You ask, and don't receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it for your pleasures.

4:4 You adulterers and adulteresses, don't you know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

4:5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, "The Spirit who lives in us yearns jealously"?

4:6 But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."{Proverbs 3:34}


God's planting has no evil upon it, but what evil are talking about? Sin is evil, no matter a little or a lot. That is a foundational truth from the start of the human race to its finish, no sin is good with God, none, not any sin is good, do you understand why we must be made new?


1 John 3:9 Whoever is born of God doesn't commit sin, because his seed remains in him; and he can't sin, because he is born of God.


Sin is death a breaking of all of God's righteousness, it does not matter the amount or the size of sin. Sin is against God and his righteousness and cannot be supported by his Holy Spirit. A person cannot break a precious vessel and glue it back together and state it has no flaws, it cannot be done without living a lie in fancy because we have affection for the vessel. All human small or great are flawed vessel broken by sin from Adam life.


1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.


All coming from Christ righteous are new created new in a new vessel having no sin. Sin breaks the vessel, we cannot be fooled in this matter without living a lie. That lie becomes religion that support this world fruit, it needs and wants, but it is not of Christ works, or his Kingdom which is no part of this world.


James 3:8 But nobody can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

3:9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who are made in the image of God.

3:10 Out of the same mouth comes forth blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.

3:11 Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water?

3:12 Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water.

3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by his good conduct that his deeds are done in gentleness of wisdom.

3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don't boast and don't lie against the truth.

3:15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, sensual, and demonic.

3:16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition are, there is confusion and every evil deed.


Does God Love The World?


God atones for sin, he makes us new by atonement, don't be fooled God does not condone sins, he atones sins, so we might have life in a new heavens and a new earth. God will kill all sins of our flesh by atoning for them and removing them through Christ righteous kingdom making us new. But we must enter by our faith in Christ righteousness, not of ourselves, not of a religion, or any other means upon this earth.


Ephesians 2:9 not of works, that no one would boast.


Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them.


The love of God for this world is him giving us salvation at the cost of his Son precious life (riches). He did not give us righteousness through Christ for us to role in the mire of this worlds sin, or to teach one can make it into God's kingdom by good works done on this earth through our flesh dead in Christ Jesus.


Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.



Romans 13:12 The night is far gone, and the day is near. Let's therefore throw off the works of darkness, and let's put on the armor of light.


If we love the Father for his great sacrifice of Christ for us, we can have a relationship with God. But if we chose ourselves we are dead to Christ and his kingdom. We must do the will of our Father for we are pattern after the personality found in Christ our head, not our head! If we lay any other stone but the Christ, in his perfect example we will be left waiting upon measurement of God's judgment.


1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beg you, brothers,{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} through the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment.


2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all be revealed before the judgment seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.


God has gave us all things, so what won't he do to save us, if we love truth, if we love the Christ. If we love Christ God's riches and not our own there is nothing God will not do to save us completely in our faith.


Rom.8:34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, yes rather, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Could oppression, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

8:36 Even as it is written, "For your sake we are killed all day long. We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter."{Psalm 44:22}

8:37 No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 8:39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
