Jesus Christ, (God’s restoration plan of the ages) taught people how to love God, and how to love others with God’s love. His mission was not only to fulfil the Law, but also to restore the hearts of God’s people to live under a greater law (living in the “spirit” of the Law): the law of love. This is what His teachings were in the many parables He taught, and those that had the heart to learn, were given the parables meanings, so they could live in God’s love.
Even after Jesus Christ fulfilled the Law and died and was raised from the dead and ascended to the right hand of His father, God. And after the gift of spirit along with the dominion over the Earth (including over Satan) was restored to mankind on the Day of Pentecost, there was still more work to be done. God had provided what He had promised to Adam and Eve in Jesus Christ with a twist. It was this twist that needed to be revealed and connected to living in God’s love as a spiritual family with God the creator as their Father also. The twist was that every believer had the same amount of God’s spirit in them, and it was unconditional, it was permanent, it was seed. Satan could not deceive you, so you could lose it, it is “eternal life” (God’s perspective), it is “everlasting life” (man’s perspective). Every believer has the same power and dominion over Satan and the Earth. It was all reinstated just as Adam and Eve originally had before the disobedience, and then some!
Paul, who killed the new Christians as a prominent religious leader for a legalistic sect of the Jews, a Pharisee, was confronted personally by the ascended Christ and was converted. Paul was told that he was the chosen one to teach the Gentiles the “unsearchable riches of Christ,” and to make all men see the “fellowship of the mystery” which was hidden in God from the beginning. What Paul revealed in the Church Epistles was the greatest redemption plan ever, and he revealed how we could live in God’s love and utilize God’s power from His gift of holy spirit that not only reinstated what Adam and Eve lost but added more capabilities in the category of prayer.
From the first instructions to Adam to not “eat of the tree of good and evil,” Adam had a choice to listen to God and carry out His will, or to listen to the ways of the world that God’s arch enemy tempted Adam and Eve with. The choice was to “Trust God” or “Trust Your Five Senses.” Trusting your five senses would lead to Pride, Ego, Self Righteousness, etc. Trusting God would lead to Peace, Love, Righteousness from God, Self Confidence, etc.
The choice has always involved our ability to weigh the facts and choose the right way to act in any situation. God’s Way, or the Way of the World. This is called “The Renewed Mind” by Paul in his Epistles. This book explores the renewed in a whole new perspective that will truly bless you and help you apply God’s Word in your life to receive all of God’s benefits.
