Declaration

Jesus Christ has created us all as Souls, died for all, and will judge all in the world righteously, with no personal favor. God writes his laws in the hearts and minds of all. God will reward the obedient and punish the disobedient. Churches get more from God; and to whom much is given, much is required.

Explanation

Now Jesus Christ is God in Omnipotent Spirit

God of the Bible is not God for a territory, a community, a race, a nation, or for a certain group. He is the God of the whole world. God of the Bible is Spirit; he exists eternally; he is Omnipotent; and he is the creator of all things. The Bible says that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, more than forty times. It says that he is the creator of the entire universe, the world, and all things in the world. He became a man and as a man he died for the sins of the entire world. "1 John 2:2 says, he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. Acts 3:26 says, God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities. Acts 17:31 says, Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness." Jesus Christ was God and creator of the whole world, became a man, died for the whole world as a man, savior of the whole world, and he will judge the whole world. Jesus Christ is not God for Christians only, but he is God for the entire world. As God the Son, he is with God the Father, and the Holy Ghost in the Omnipotent Spirit. They are in the one and only Omnipotent Spirit, and that Spirit is their body.

We are Souls, and we have the Law of God

Every person is a soul, and a body is given to us to live. We may call our souls as our nature, character, conscience, heart, mind, or whatever, but that is what we are. God has written his laws, which are righteousness, in our hearts, minds, that is in us. We may choose to obey or not to obey. It is our choice. Romans 2 says: "14 .. when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another; 16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel." Everybody receives laws in their hearts from God directly, and Christians receive it from the bible also. They may obey the law from their conscience, Christians may obey it from the Bible, but the law is same. We may disobey also. The disobedient people will receive the punishment, and the obedient people will receive the rewards from Jesus Christ, on judgment day according to his word. "Romans 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if thou be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. 26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? 27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the law, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the law?" 1 Corinthians 7:19 says: "Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God." God divides the whole world in two groups, the Obedient and the Disobedient; but not as Christians and Non-Christians. In his judgment, the obedient is saved.

God does not have any Person as His Favorite

Christians think that, we are special; God's people; God loves us; we are saved; we will inherit heaven; God is our Father; we are his children; he takes care of us in every way; and so on. But, the Bible does not say any of these things, even though we may interpret some verses to this effect. Instead, the Bible says that God is no respecter of persons, that is, he will not favor  any person. God judges every man according to his works, or what he does, but not according to whether he is a Christian or not. 1 Peter 1:17 says "... if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:" Here again, the apostle Peter tells us to fear God because he will not favor us. But preachers say just the opposite. Acts 10 says: "34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him." Romans 2:11 says: "For there is no respect of persons with God. 12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law" Galatians 2:6 says: "... God accepteth no man's person..." Ephesians 6:9 says: " knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him." Colossians 3 says: "11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. 25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons." God loves all his creation; Jews and Gentiles; or Christians and Non-Christians. However Scripture says that those who obey God will be his people and his children. They will receive heavenly rewards.

'The Obedient' is Righteous and 'the disobedient' is unrighteous

Jesus Christ tells this in Matthew 25: "31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:..... 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:.. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, ... 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:...... 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." It is about the judgment of the entire world. People were separated into two groups. The two groups are not Christians and Non-Christians, but Righteous and Unrighteous, or the good and the evil. The Righteous are gathered into eternal life and the Unrighteous are cast into everlasting fire. There will be no consideration in his judgment, for being a Christian. I am a Christian. I am not against you. I am telling this, because I want you to know the truth.

However, the church has an enormous privilege. "Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. ... 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers." The church has this privilege to continue in Apostle's doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread, and in prayers, so that we may grow into the spiritual kingdom of God. But, our churches do not follow any of these. We do not use this privilege. Instead, we have become a religious society. We call ourselves as Christians and say that we have Jesus Christ as our God. Other than that, we live just like the world. There is no difference between the church and the world. We have mixed real well. Christians are in the flesh, but not in the Spirit. Please tell this to as many Christians as you can, so that they may convert themselves into spirituals. Some may say that we are Pentecostal Christians and we are spiritual. I am also a Pentecostal Christian. But we manifest only the gifts of the Holy Ghost, but not the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. We are also living as part of the world. There must be conversion from the flesh to the spirit and that will make us righteous. Getting excited in worship service is good. Let us also convert ourselves to righteousness and inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ tells this in Matthew 13:43 that "Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear."

Thank you for listening, God bless you and be with you. Amen.
