Deliverance Follows Obedience

Deliverance Follows Obedience
Prepare your heart to seek God for obedience that you may observe and do all that Christ has commanded through His holy apostles.
"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent." (Zephaniah 3:9)

1 John 2:5-6 (S8W Online Assembly)

Embedded Assembly Video Below

Just as physical DNA plays an important part in shaping your physical characteristics so also does God’s holy ordered knowledge (His DNA) play a vital role in shaping Christ in you. And just as the pattern needs to be there first before a resemblance can develop, it is the same with God’s kingdom. A pattern of knowledge needs to be set in place first before you can take on the divine nature of Christ (2 Peter 1:4-5).

This pattern of knowledge that God placed in the elements of the gospel is the blueprint of the life of Christ. It is the foundation upon which life in Him is built by faith in Him. This pattern of knowledge is laid in the heart by the instruction of living apostles.

Christians know that Jesus accomplished everything for them on the cross and that through Him they are promised the ability to walk in victory over sin, yet most are living in defeat. You know that Christ is sufficient but have you asked, “What is the reason for this defeat?” or “Why aren’t most experiencing the powerful life of Christ God promised?”

The reason for this defeat is that the foundation of truth was never properly set in their hearts. As a result they do not have a firm foundation of knowledge upon which to build their faith. Without this pattern of knowledge, faith cannot resemble Jesus Christ and will only bear the image and likeness of our first birth in the flesh.

God will accept nothing less than Christ in our faith and we can only experience the life of Christ when our faith builds upon this one foundation of Truth which is made up of the 12 foundation stones: grace, faith, righteousness, justification, sanctification, holiness, peace, rest, charity, truth, regeneration, and the renewing of the mind.

Truth, which comes through living apostles, makes all the necessary connections so that we may recognize the pattern God set for our faith to follow. With truth in the heart, we learn how to meet God’s expectations through sanctified faith in Christ which joins our faith perfectly to Him that we may experience the power and fullness of Christ.
