Eternal Intimacy with God or Bondage to Letters?

Eternal Intimacy with God or Bondage to Letters, your choice…

Responding to those enslaved by letters,

To “believe” is to “trust” in what God has said and believe that He is true and that He will do exactly what He has promised. This is “faith” that is pleasing to God and initiates covenant relationship with Him when you believe and trust in what Jesus did for you at Golgotha (John 3).

Once faith is established with covenant relationship initiated, that faith will manifest in a change of heart (2 Corinthians 5:17), the desire to please God and behaviors that are oriented to pleasing God naturally flow out of love and appreciation for what God has done for you and the Holy Spirit anoints you and empowers you to live a life that honors God and eschews worldly lusts (Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 John 4:19; 1 John 2:27; Galatians 5:16).

Where you err is thinking that self-righteousness, your behavior, pursuing a facade of obedience to laws and ordinances and days is KEY to relationship with God…this is the Jewish-Israelite error of self-righteousness and religiosity and cult behavior…. not faith.

God is pleased when you trust Him, love Him irrespective of what the World tells you or what your eyes might see, your ears might hear, or how you “feel” about a particular scenario…God desires your heart with purity…then, those behaviors that please God will naturally follow…NOT by compulsion through a facade of obedience to a cold stone tablet of LAWS but through intimacy with purity in love.

Faith-believing-trust initiates covenant relationship with God – subsequently – obedience to God’s will naturally follows as validation that one’s faith is authentic. This sequencing cannot be altered by self-righteousness, obedience, first to initiate covenant relationship.

I hope one day you come to understand this before you pass into eternity; otherwise, you will never truly know God and why you have been placed here for such a time as this.
