I PRAY GOD'S ABUNDANT GRACE IS REALIZED IN YOUR PERSON, AS GOD OPENS THE EYES OF YOUR HEART BY HIS UNDERSTANDING, RELEASING THE COUNSEL OF HIS MYSTERIES WHEREBY YOU OBTAIN KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM OF HIS GREAT NAME!!!!
I PRAY THAT GOD CAUSE YOU TO SEE THE LIFTING OF YOUR HEAD, WHEREBY HE DRAWS YOU NEAR TO HIS HEART WITH HIS GREAT GRACE, CAUSING YOU TO SEE HIS THOUGHTS TOWARDS YOU, WHICH ARE MORE THAN THE SAND ON THE SEASHORE!!!!!!!
I PRAY THAT IN GOD'S GREAT GRACE, HE WILL CAUSE YOU TO SEE THE CLEANSING OF HIS WORD AT WORK IN YOU, IN ORDER THAT YOU DO THE WORKS OF THE FATHER!!!!
I PRAY THAT YOU ONLY SEE AND HEAR WHAT THE FATHER IS DOING AND SAYING, WHEREBY THE LIGHT OF HIS VOICE CAUSES YOU TO BE PIERCED BY THE WORD LIKE A NAIL PIERCING THE OBJECT TO WHICH IT BINDS ITSELF!!!!! I DECLARE THE WORD OF GOD IS BINDING YOUR HEART TO THE HEART OF THE FATHER, WHEREBY YOU ONLY SPEAK FROM THAT POSITION OF THE FATHER'S HEART, TO PIERCE EVEN THOSE WHO HAVE HEARTS OF STONE, IN ORDER THAT GOD'S RUACH (HIS SPIRIT) BREATHES ON THEM AND MAKES THEM A HEART OF FLESH!!!!!!
IN JESUS NAME!!!!

THE ENEMY IS FINE WITH YOU READING THE WORD OF GOD AS LONG AS IT IS NOT DRIPPING AND DIPPED IN GRACE!!!!!!!! REMEMBER satan IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN CAME UP TO EVE AND BEGAN TO PERVERT THE WORD OF GOD, BY PERVERTING GOD'S GRACE!!!!!! GOD'S GRACE IS THE FATHER'S LOVE!!!!!
WHAT IS INTERESTING IS THE WAY THE ENEMY PERVERTED GRACE IS THROUGH HIS SLIPPERY TONGUE OR CAN WE SAY HIS SPEECH THAT WOULD LEAD TO MUSING, SOMETHING MUCH LIKE A SONG OR MUSE-IC WITH HIS SLIMY SPEECH, DRIPPING WITH A HYPNOTIC TONE CAUSING EVE TO MUSE!!!!!!!????? REMEMBER LUCIFER DID LEAD WORSHIP BEFORE THE FALL SO THE TALENT IS THERE ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT ANOINTED OF GOD!!!!!!! THEREFORE, THE REFLECTIVE TONE CAUSING THE MUSING PERVERTED GRACE!!!! WE KEEP THINKING THAT satan WAS SPEAKING THROUGH THE SERPENT WITH AN ORDINARY SPEECH, WHY NOT GO PAST YOUR THINKING AND GET A REVELATION THAT satan WAS MUSING ADAM AND EVE (GETTING THEM TO REFLECT) THROUGH SOMETHING MORE THAN JUST SPEAKING; SOMEHOW he GOT THEIR ATTENTION THROUGH RELEASING SLIPPERY WORDS THAT WOULD DRAW THEM IN, PULL THEM IN THROUGH his OWN TALENT!!!!!!!! DID HIS SPEECH RING FORTH WITH A NOTE OR A MELODY DRIPPING WITH MAYBE A SOUND THAT WOULD LULL THEM TO SLEEP LIKE A FLUTE????????? TODAY THE ENEMY IS PERVERTING GRACE HEAD ON THROUGH MUSIC AS THAT SLIPPERY TONGUE RINGS FORTH A MELODY OR SOUND THAT IS ALTOGETHER AN ABOMINATION TO THE WORD OF GOD, PUTTING MANY TO SLEEP!!!!!!!
THE ENEMY CONVINCED EVE THAT THE FATHER WAS HOLDING BACK FROM HER AND DID NOT LOVE HER AS SHE PERCEIVED!!!! THE ENEMY TOOK THE WORD OF GOD AND BEGAN TO TWIST AND MANIPULATE IT. IT IS NO DIFFERENT TODAY; THE FORKED TONGUE SERPENT DOES NOT MIND IF YOU HAVE THE WORD OF GOD, AS LONG AS IT IS LAW TO YOU AND NOT GRACE!!!!!! THE LAW BRINGS FORTH JUDGMENT-KILLING- AND ONLY ONE WAS ABLE TO FULFILL THE LAW, JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GRACE BRINGS FORTH LIFE AND LIFE ABUNDANTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHEN YOU RECEIVE THE POWER OF GRACE ON THE SEED OF GOD'S WORD WITHIN YOUR PERSON, THAT HIS HIDDEN, IT WILL BEAR GREAT FRUIT 30, 60 AND 100 FOLD!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME, AS YOU ENDURE THE TRYING AND TESTING OF THE WORD WITHIN YOUR PERSON THAT IS PERSECUTED SO THAT AS YOU CLING TO THAT WORD DURING THAT SEASON IT WILL ABOUND WITH MUCH LIFE AND MUCH GRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PRESS INTO GOD'S WORD AND GRAB A HOLD OF THE POSTS ON THE ANCIENT PATHS, CLINGING TO THEM AS THOUGH YOU WOULD DIE IF YOU LET GO!!!!!! AS YOU CLING TO THOSE POSTS WAIT BY THOSE ANCIENT PATHS (THE WORD OF GOD), PEERING AT IT CONTINUALLY AS THE LOGOS (WORD OF GOD) UNTIL GRACE COMES FORTH ADDING THE POWER OF GOD'S LIFE AND SPIRIT TO THAT WORD WROUGHTING IT FORTH AS RHEMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOGOS IS GREEK FOR 'WORD' USED IN JOHN 1:1 'IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD HIMSELF. LOGOS MEANS A WORD, TO SPEAK, A COMPUTATION. THE ROOT WORD IS LEGO MEANING TO LAY FORTH, A SYSTEMATIC SET, ETC. THE WORD OF GOD HERE IS TO LAY FORTH AND REVEAL THE COMPUTATION OF GOD; AS HE IS A SYSTEM, A KINGDOM!!!!!!!!!!!
RHEMA MEANS THE WORDS THAT JESUS SPOKE AND INDICATES IN GREEK, WORD, TO SPEAK AND TO SAY. THIS IS THE WEAPON USED IN EPHESIANS 6:17 WITH THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, AS THE WORD OF GOD! AS YOU RECEIVE THE LOGOS, GRACE COMES FORTH AND BRINGS 30, 60 AND 100 FOLD TURNING THE LOGOS THAT IS WITHIN YOUR HEART INTO RHEMA, A WEAPON OF WARFARE TO BATTLE AND DEFEAT THE ENEMY!!!!!!!!!!!!! PRESS ON CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS AND WATCH THE LOGOS OF GOD'S WORTH COME FORTH AS RHEMA!!!!!!!!!!!
4 Such is the reliance and confidence that we have through Christ toward and with reference to God.
5 Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God.
6 [It is He] Who has qualified us [making us to be fit and worthy and sufficient] as ministers and dispensers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not [ministers] of the letter (of legally written code) but of the Spirit; for the code [of the Law] kills, but the [Holy] Spirit makes alive.
7 Now if the dispensation of death engraved in letters on stone [the ministration of the Law], was inaugurated with such glory and splendor that the Israelites were not able to look steadily at the face of Moses because of its brilliance, [a glory] that was to fade and pass away,
8 Why should not the dispensation of the Spirit [this spiritual ministry whose task it is to cause men to obtain and be governed by the Holy Spirit] be attended with much greater and more splendid glory?
9 For if the service that condemns [the ministration of doom] had glory, how infinitely more abounding in splendor and glory must be the service that makes righteous [the ministry that produces and fosters righteous living and right standing with God]!
10 Indeed, in view of this fact, what once had splendor [the glory of the Law in the face of Moses] has come to have no splendor at all, because of the overwhelming glory that exceeds and excels it [the glory of the Gospel in the face of Jesus Christ].
11 For if that which was but passing and fading away came with splendor, how much more must that which remains and is permanent abide in glory and splendor!
12 Since we have such [glorious] hope (such joyful and confident expectation), we speak very freely and openly and fearlessly.
13 Nor [do we act] like Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze upon the finish of the vanishing [splendor which had been upon it].
14 In fact, their minds were grown hard and calloused [they had become dull and had lost the power of understanding]; for until this present day, when the Old Testament (the old covenant) is being read, that same veil still lies [on their hearts], not being lifted [to reveal] that in Christ it is made void and done away.
15 Yes, down to this [very] day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies upon their minds and hearts.
16 But whenever a person turns [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away.
17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).
18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. 2 CORINTHIANS 3:4-18 AMP

JANUARY 28TH (THE WEDNESDAY BEFORE THE SUPERBOWL) GOD HAD ME POST ABOUT THE SEDUCTIVE MANIPULATION THAT WOULD COME OUT OF THE STRONG WOMAN'S LIP, INDICATING A SPIRIT OPERATING THROUGH KATY PERRY AT THE SUPER BOWL. TWO DAYS LATER ON JANUARY 30TH GOD HAD ME POST A NOTE WARNING OF A RELEASE OF A FALSE LOVE, INDICATING A FALSE GRACE, IN OTHER WORDS A PERVERSION OF GRACE!!!!!! THE DAY OF THE SUPER BOWL BEFORE THE HALF-TIME SHOW I SAW WHERE SHE HAS A SONG TITLED 'BY THE GRACE OF GOD' AND I POSTED AGAIN THAT THERE WAS A PERVERSION OF GOD'S GRACE!!!!!!!!
SAINTS OF GOD WAKE UP AND SMELL THE TRUTH OF CHRIST JESUS, THE WORD AND DO NOT BUY INTO THE LYING SPIRIT THAT IS PERVERTING GRACE THROUGH THE FORKED TONGUE OF THE SERPENT!!!! WAKE UP TO WHAT IS HAPPENING THIS HOUR AND DO NOT BELIEVE FOR ONE MINUTE THAT GOD SPOKE TO KATY PERRY DURING THE SUPER BOWL; HE WILL NOT SPEAK AGAINST HIS OWN PERSON, HIS WORD!!!! HE WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN IDOLATRY, SORCERY OR PERVERSION!!!
I HAVE SEEN SUPPOSED CHRISTIANS WRITING ABOUT THIS OCCASION AND SAYING SHE HEARD FROM GOD! DO NOT BELIEVE IT FOR ONE SECOND, DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!!!!!!!! PLEASE SAINTS OF GOD EVEN THE ELECT COULD BE DECEIVED IF IT WERE POSSIBLE AND THIS IS SURELY THAT OCCASION!!!!! WAKE UP AND BE NOT DECEIVED!!!!
THIS IS A FALSE SIGN OF satan TO DECEIVE YOU!!!!! satan THE FORKED TONGUE SERPENT SPOKE TO JESUS AND SPOKE SCRIPTURE TO JESUS SAYING 'GOD SAID!!!!!' WAKE UP PEOPLE AND TEST THE SPIRIT! ( 1 JOHN 4:1-2)
DO NOT BE EASILY SWAYED BY THE FORKED TONGUE SERPENT SPEAKING THROUGH HER LIPS AND PRAY FOR HER SALVATION!!!!!!
PS I WILL POST NOTE IN COMMENTS!
6 And he said to Him, If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, He will give His angels charge over you, and they will bear you up on their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said to him,On the other hand, it is written also, You shall not tempt, test thoroughly, or try exceedingly the Lord your God. MATTHEW 4:6-7 AMP

SAINTS OF GOD BE ENCOURAGED AND CONTINUE TO RUN THE RACE OF FAITH WITH THE GREAT GRACE DISTRIBUTED UNTO YOU BY THE FATHER THROUGH HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST!!!! IT IS THAT RELATIONSHIP OF THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST JESUS THAT HAS CONSECRATED US UNTO A DIVINE RELATIONSHIP THROUGH THE FATHER ONLY BY GRACE!!!
THE CONCEPT OF GRACE IS DIFFICULT FOR MANY PEOPLE TO GRASP BECAUSE WE HAVE SUCH A WORKS BASED CONCEPT AS IT RELATES TO WHETHER OR NOT WE ARE GOOD ENOUGH! THE ENEMY WANTS TO PAINT THE PICTURE THAT YOU ARE BAD IN A WAY TO ONLY BE CONDEMNING AND SLANDERING YOU, WHICH BRINGS FEAR, REJECTION, ANXIETY, ETC. THE FRUIT OF THAT IS NOT OF GOD BUT ONLY THE FRUIT OF THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL!!!!!
HOLY SPIRIT BRINGS DIVINE CORRECTION TO REPROOF US BY THE WORD OF GOD, DELIVERING CONVICTION, WHICH DOES NOT CONDEMN BUT REACHES INTO OUR MIND AND HEART (SOUL) TO EXPOSE AND REMOVE THE LIE OF THE ENEMY SO WE NO LONGER WALK IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS BUT RATHER BY WISDOM WE WALK IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!!!
THOSE PEOPLE WHO SPEAK TO OTHERS FROM THE PLACE OF OUR GOODNESS, OUR SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS CANNOT GRASP THE CONCEPT OF GRACE AND THEREBY NULLIFY THE POWER OF GOD'S HOLY SPIRIT THAT DELIVERS THIS INSTRUMENT AND ATTRIBUTE OF THE FATHER TO US!!!!!! GRACE IS A FREE GIFT AND NOT ANYTHING WE HAVE EARNED!!!!
I HAVE SEEN A PERVERSION OF A FALSE GRACE WHICH USES GOD'S GIFT AS A LICENSE TO SIN AND THAT IS PROFANE!! THAT TYPE OF THINKING NULLIFIES THE POWER OF GOD AS WELL AS MAKES GRACE ORDINARY OR COMMON!!!!! ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN THERE IS ANOTHER PROFANITY OF GOD'S GRACE THAT HOLY SPIRIT RECENTLY SHOWED ME!!!! HE SHOWED ME THERE ARE THOSE THAT DO NOT KNOW THE GRACE OF GOD AND PREACH FROM THE LOG IN THEIR OWN EYE, BRINGING NOTHING BUT CONDEMNATION AND FEAR TO ALL THOSE THEY PREACH, WHOM I USE TO BE ONE YEARS AGO!!!!! I WAS SO CAUGHT UP IN A DITCH OF THE FEAR OF THE LORD WITHOUT GRACE THAT GOD HAD TO GET MY ATTENTION BECAUSE HE SAID IF I CONTINUED ON I WOULD SEND MY SON STRAIGHT TO HELL BECAUSE OF MY LEGALISM (THE WORD WITHOUT GRACE)!!!!!!! THANK GOODNESS GOD ALLOWED THE TRIAL TO REACH TO THAT PLACE IN MY HEART WHERE HIS LOVE POURED OUT AND RELEASED TO ME THE POWER OF HIS GRACE AND I SIMPLY POURED OUT THAT LOVE ON MY SON AND IT WAS THAT LOVE THAT TURNED HIM BACK TO GOD!!!!!!!!!!! THAT LOVE IS GOD'S GRACE!!!!!
I HAVE WRITTEN NOTES ON BEHEMOTH, WHICH IS IN JOB AND DEPICTS SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE A PHARISEE WHO WALKS IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORD FROM THE TREE OF GOOD AND EVIL AND NOT THE TREE OF LIFE!!!! I SEE SO MANY WHO PREACH FROM THE POSITION OF BEHEMOTH AND HAVE NOT THE LOVE OF THE FATHER, THE GRACE OF GOD, AND END UP FLOGGING ALL THOSE WHO DO NOT MEET THEIR STANDARDS!!!!! GOD TOLD ME 'ROBIN BEHEMOTH HAS A HUGE LOGGING TRUCK,' MEANING THAT THOSE WHO WALK IN SELF -RIGHTEOUSNESS HAVE MORE LOGS IN THEIR EYES JUDGING EVERYONE ELSE FROM THEIR OWN LOGS!!!
MERCY IN GREEK MEANS TO REPROOF, CORRECT, CONVICT AND HAS THE POWER OF GRACE TO DO SO!! A PROOF IN MATHEMATICAL STATEMENT 'THAT IS SELF-EVIDENT OR ASSUMED STATEMENTS, KNOWN AS AXIOMS.' AN AXIOM IS A PREMISE THAT IS ACCEPTED AS TRUTH WITHOUT ANY CONTROVERSY, NOTHING CAN PROVE IT FALSE!!!! IT IS AN ATTESTATION AND CANNOT BE USURPED!!! THIS IS WHAT MERCY DOES, IS REPROOF US!!!! IT REMOVES THE LIES OF THE ENEMY THAT ARE INCORRECT AND LIE TO US!!! GOD'S GRACE AND MERCY COME FORTH TO REPROOF US CAUSING US TO BE ST FORTH TO REPRESENT THE COVENANT OF GOD, OF HIS WORD, WHICH SAYS
1) WE ARE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST JESUS,
2) WE ARE JOINT HEIRS WITH CHRIST JESUS, SEATED WITH HIM IN HEAVENLY PLACES!!!!!
3) WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST JESUS, WHICH HAS THE THOUGHTS AND PURPOSES OF THE FATHER'S HEART!!
4) WE ARE A HOLY NATION AND A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD!!!
WE COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT WHAT THE WORD SAYS ABOUT IT US!!!! THE WORD IS AN AX THAT GOES TO THE ROOT OF THE LIE, IT IS AN AX OF "I AM" AND AXIAM, WHICH BRINGS FORTH THE TESTAMENT OF WHO AND WHOSE YOU ARE WITHOUT BEING DISPUTED!!!!!! IT REMOVES YOU FROM THE COURTROOM OF THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN THAT HAS NO POWER OF GOD'S GRACE AND ONLY WANTS TO BEAT YOU DOWN INTO SUBMISSION!!!!!!
GRACE CAUSES YOU TO BE SO LOVE SICK FOR JESUS, FOR THE FATHER BY HOLY SPIRIT THAT YOU DON'T MIND BEING A BOND SERVANT, A BOND SLAVE!!!! YOU WILL SERVE GOD ALL THE DAYS OF YOUR LIFE NOT OUT OF FEAR BUT RATHER OUT OF LOVE, OUT OF GRACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DO NOT LET ANYONE PERVERT THE GRACE OF GOD EITHER THROUGH PROFANING IT AS A LICENSE TO SIN OR USING IT AS A PERFORMANCE OF SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT GETS YOU TO GOD!!! THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN GET US TO GOD IS JESUS CHRIST AND NONE OTHER!!!!!
I LOVE THIS BECAUSE THE FORMULA GOD HAS ME USE IN QUANTUM PHYSICS THAT IS VIEWED AS MEASURING THINGS ON THE 'WEAK SCALE' TAKES INTO CONSIDERATION THE WEAKEST PARTICLES IN THE EARTH THAT CAN BARELY BE MEASURED. HOWEVER, IF THEY REGISTER EVEN AS .OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO1 THEY ARE STILL A PARTICLE, A MASS. WHAT IS INTERESTING IS THAT IT IS MULTIPLIED TO A FACT THAT HAS AS ITS SYMBOL AN 'R' IN IT, WHICH GOD SHOWS US INDICATES RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!!! BUT THIS IS WHAT BLEW MY MIND!!!!!!! GET READY!!!! QUANTUM PHYSICISTS WERE SO BLOWN AWAY SPENDING HOURS PONDERING AND IN AWE OF THIS ONE TRUTH AS IT RELATES TO THE WEAK SCALE; ARE YOU READY!!!!!???? THEY FIGURED OUT IT DIDN'T MATTER HOW WEAK, UTTERLY WEAK THE MASS PARTICLE WAS THAT WAS MULTIPLIED TO THE 'R' FACTOR BECAUSE IT WAS THE "R" FACTOR THAT HAD THE FORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY SAID THAT THE MASS PARTICLE NUMBER IS SIMPLY A 'PURE NUMBER!'
ARE YOU READY FOR THIS REVELATION???? THE WEAKER YOU ARE THE GREATER YOU ARE BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF THE 'R' FACTOR, THE RIGHTEOUSNESS FACTOR OF CHRIST JESUS THAT CHASES YOU DOWN WITH THE FORCE OF GOD'S GRACE, RECONCILING YOU TO THE FATHER BECAUSE YOU ARE PURE, YOU ARE COUNTED AS HIS SHEEP, YOU ARE A PURE NUMBER, YOU SIMPLY SAID YES!!!!!!!!!! THAT IS GRACE AND THAT IS POWER!!!!!! GRACE CAN BE DISTRIBUTED TO SOMEONE WHO WAS COUNTED OUT AS A NUMBER BUT MERCY SAID NO, JESUS AND THE FATHER BY HOLY SPIRIT COUNTED THEM IN BECAUSE IT IS NOT BASED ON THEIR SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS BUT RATHER IT IS BASED ON THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF ONE, JESUS CHRIST!!!
THE LAW OF GOD'S WORD EXPOSES SIN AND YOUR GUILT!!! HOWEVER, THE GRACE OF GOD SAYS THERE IS AN ALTERNATE A SUBSTITUTE WHO BORE THE GUILT OF SIN SO YOU WOULD NOT!!!!! GRACE SAYS YOU ARE HOLY AND TRANSFORMS YOU INTO THAT HOLINESS BY GOD'S SPIRIT!!!!!!
THAT GRACE WILL SET YOU FREE, HEAL YOU AND DELIVER YOU, CONNECTING YOU TO THE TREE OF LIFE IN THE ROOT SYSTEM OF GOD'S LOVE!!!!!!
Therefore, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death. 3 For God has done what the Law could not do, [its power] being weakened by the flesh [the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit]. Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, [God] condemned sin in the flesh [subdued, overcame, [c]deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice], 4 So that the righteous and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit [our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Holy Spirit]. 5 For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit. 6 Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever]. 7 [That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot. 8 So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him. 9 But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy] Spirit of God [really] dwells within you [directs and controls you]. But if anyone does not possess the [Holy] Spirit of Christ, he is none of His [he does not belong to Christ, is not truly a child of God]. 10 But if Christ lives in you, [then although] your [natural] body is dead by reason of sin and guilt, the spirit is alive because of [the] righteousness [that He imputes to you]. 11 And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you. 12 So then, brethren, we are debtors, but not to the flesh [we are not obligated to our carnal nature], to live [a life ruled by the standards set up by the dictates] of the flesh. 13 For if you live according to [the dictates of] the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the power of the [Holy] Spirit you are [habitually] putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the [evil] deeds prompted by the body, you shall [really and genuinely] live forever. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father! 16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God. 17 And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory. 18 [But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us! 19 For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship]. 20 For the creation (nature) was subjected to frailty (to futility, condemned to frustration), not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it—[yet] with the hope 21 That nature (creation) itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption [and gain an entrance] into the glorious freedom of God’s children. 22 We know that the whole creation [of irrational creatures] has been moaning together in the pains of labor until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the firstfruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God’s sons). 24 For in [this] hope we were saved. But hope [the object of] which is seen is not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees? 25 But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure. 26 So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance. 27 And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God’s will. 28 We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose. 29 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren. 30 And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being]. 31 What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?] 32 He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?] 34 Who is there to condemn [us]? Will Christ Jesus (the Messiah), Who died, or rather Who was raised from the dead, Who is at the right hand of God actually pleading as He intercedes for us? 35 Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword? 36 Even as it is written, For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long; we are regarded and counted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors [m]and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ROMANS 8:1-39 AMP
