    To Jacko - quote, "He gave a part of Himself through Christ Jesus." unquote. Matt. 22:29; Col. 2:9; Jn. 3:34; Job 32:8. I had thought maybe you just hadn't seen these scriptures ..... ?
  • Jacko
    In full essences of Colossians, the Father has brought us in full circle back to HIMSELF! He gave apart of Himself through Christ Jesus. In doing so we come to a place of recognizing JESUS as the Son of God, therefore we humbly come before the throne of grace and recognize what JESUS did for us on the cross and after the cross. God has brought us back to HIMSELF. Our relationship is now with Him.

    colossians 1:21 and you that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works yet now hath HE reconciled 22 in the body of HIS flesh through death to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in HIS sight 23--IF--YOU CONTINUE IN THE FAITH GROUNDED AND SETTLED AND BE NOT MOVED AWAY FROM THE HOPE OF THE GOSPEL WHICH YOU HAVE HEARD AND WHICH WAS PREACHED TO EVERY CREATURE ...

    As long as we are not becoming as a little child....we will not enter the Kingdom We are not even succeeding to Love one another, our enemies....The basic things Jesus tried to teach us , but we didn't want to obey....we want to do our own thing and first want to know hairsplitting things that are not so important at the moment, The most important things......to Love we don't even know anymore, we prefer to do the opposite..... Fools are we and we know the Peace that we want for the world will not come, until our Lord and Saviour comes back for a second time ........We get upset because we don't know if God creates everything?? How important is that?? We will know this when the time is there and we have first learnt what is the most important thing at this moment, while there's soo much hate around us and we're fooled by so-called pastors, preachers that are not even able to lead their flocks and are not preaching the Words of Jesus, but their own thoughts.... Let's try again to look at the Words of Jesus, the basic things that He thought us and try to start a pure relationship from our hearts with Him and then The Holy Spirit, our teacher that He left us, will teach us ALL THINGS!! If we're ready to receive it!!
