CHAPTER 3 – AS the RESIDENTS of the SPIRITUAL SUPERNATURAL KINGDOM of GOD, WHAT IS OUR “STANDARD”/ SPIRITUAL PROFILE?

© How are we to understand and implement in our lives the things of our new spiritual character living in the concepts of God’s spiritual supernatural Kingdom?

How are we to understand and implement in our lives the things of our new spiritual character living in the concepts of God’s spiritual supernatural Kingdom, having our new spiritual supernatural “STANDARD”/spiritual profile – our attributes, our partaking of the spiritual supernatural Divine Nature of the Almighty {our spiritual supernatural DNA}, our spiritual supernatural “ONENESS” with God, and our spiritual supernatural Gifts? As we continue on with our Kingdom of God study, it is absolutely imperative{/a vital necessity} to utilize the spiritually “sound mind of Jesus Christ” as you seek God i.e. to understand the spiritual mysteries and the now revealed truths of the Bible.
Psalms 14:2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understood, dealt wisely, and sought after God, inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him [of vital necessity]. AMP

I have studied the following concepts for some 20 plus years. Because they are spiritual supernatural in nature, it has been difficult for me to put them into proper perspective in my life. It is NOT easy to get rid of our “old man” “kingdom(s) of the world” nature and replace it with our “new spiritual man” Kingdom of God nature in Christ. It can ONLY be done by the renewing of you mind and this takes time!
Ephesians 4:21-24 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him {God the Holy Spirit}, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. NKJV

One afternoon in the early 1990’s I was sitting at my computer meditating on how God had changed my life when God started to help me realized just how He had changed me spiritually. I audibly asked God, “As a new ‘Born Again’ creature in Christ {2 Corinthians 5:17}, could I be spiritually like Adam was BEFORE he sinned?” God immediately answered me in an audible voice, “Would I have more than one ‘STANDARD’?” I knew the answer to His question was “NO!” From that has come the following studies on “STANDARD,” “DNA,” “ONENESS,” “God’s Gifts,” and now the “KINGDOM of God” teaching over many years.

I will use the word “STANDARD” a great deal in PART II. “STANDARD” as applied to a person can be defined as a measure of comparison from the beginning to the end of one’s life’s journey of attaining a level of excellence in their life. It is also the principles or values that govern that person’s behavior. BUT as we will see to Biblically define the word “STANDARD” is to reveal the level of excellence imputed {credited to the} “Born Again” Saint’s new spiritual supernatural “STANDARD”/spiritual profile and includes the Biblical principles and values that now govern his/her moral behavior in Jesus Christ. God the Son/Jesus Christ is our “STANDARD”/spiritual profile for comparison! Will you accept them as to who you are as a new spiritual creature in Jesus Christ?
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new {spiritual} creature altogether); the old [previous moral and {demonic} spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new {“STANDARD”/spiritual profile} has come! AMP
1 John 4:17 By this, {God’s} love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He {Jesus Christ} is, so also are we {spiritually as we physically reside} in this {kingdom(s) of the} world. NASU

I will take our new “STANDARD”/spiritual profile in Jesus Christ combined with our Divine Nature of the Almighty and reveal the mystery of our “ONENESS” – our being uniquely united as “ONE” with God. We will NEVER be God!!! But because we share these attributes/characteristics with Him, we have a spiritual supernatural character and relationship with Him that is truly out of this world!

This “STANDARD”/spiritual profile is the same as the spiritual supernatural image of God for every new creation – “Born Again”/Adopted Child of God!
John 4:24 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality). AMP
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own {spiritual supernatural} image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; {physically and spiritually} male and female He created them. [Col 3:9, 10; James 3:8, 9.] AMP
Romans 8:29-30 For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand {Christ’s adopted children}], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the {same spiritual supernatural} image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren. 30And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being]. AMP {The processes involved in verse 30 leads us into our new spiritual “STANDARD.”}

Instantly as a new creation in Christ, God looks at us through our faith in Jesus Christ and our cleansing by His shed blood of all our sins as being of the same “STANDARD”/spiritual profile of having the same attributes/nature as the original sinless created Adam and our sinless Savior, Lord God, and Master – Jesus Christ. God the Father looks at us and our NEW attributes/characteristics as being without sin, righteous, perfect, holy, pure, and blessed. Each attribute of our new “STANDARD”/spiritual profile now combined reveals our “ONENESS” in spiritual character with God and also comes with a ministry/works that God predestined for us in a process called sanctification. Sanctification is the lifelong process which immediately follows justification whereby the new believer is set apart by God for his/her predestined ministry of works.
1 John 4:17 In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world. AMP
Galatians 2:21 I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification {God’s process for us to be “saved” from our sins} were through the law, then Christ died to no purpose. RSV
Romans 6:19 I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations {worldly mind-set}. For just as you once yielded your members to impurity and to greater and greater iniquity, so now yield your members to righteousness for sanctification {our being set apart for ministry by God}. RSV
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. AMP

Following is your new “STANDARD”/spiritual profile. Each characteristic is represented by a check, its Scriptural confirmation by a solid black circle, and your works in the Kingdom of God that goes with each one by a white circle:
As a “new creation” in Christ, you are now without sin:
2 Corinthians 5:17, 19 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new {spiritual} creature altogether); the old [previous moral and {demonic} spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new {moral and spiritual condition} has come!
19 It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses {sins} [but canceling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). AMP
2 Corinthians 5:18-20 But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him {They are “Born Again.”}]. 19 It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but canceling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God. AMP
Your being righteous:
Philippians 3:9 And that I may [actually] be found and known as in Him, not having any [self-achieved] righteousness that can be called my own, based on my obedience to the Law’s demands (ritualistic uprightness and supposed right standing with God thus acquired), but possessing that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ (the Anointed One), the [truly] right standing with God, which comes from God by [saving] faith. AMP
Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. NKJV
Your being perfect:
Hebrews 12:23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written {in the Book of Life} in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect. NIV
Matthew 5:48 You, therefore, must be perfect [growing into complete maturity of godliness in mind and character, having reached the proper height of virtue and integrity], as your heavenly Father is perfect. [Leviticus 19:2, 18.] AMP
Your being holy:
Hebrews 13:12 And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. NIV
Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God — this is your spiritual act of worship. NIV
Your being pure:
1 John 3:2-3 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. NASU
Philippians 4:8-9 Meditate on These Things. Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you. NKJV
Your being blessed:
John 20:28-29 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed {in Me as Lord God}. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed {in Me as their Lord God}.” NKJV
Psalms 2:12 Kiss the Son {Jesus Christ} [pay homage {worship} to Him in purity], lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him! AMP

© You also received a new spirit which will enable you to connect up to God the Holy Spirit…

There are numerous other Scriptures that give support to the above revealed truth.
When you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, you also received a “new heart of flesh” which enables you to truly love and serve God and others. You also received a “new spirit” which will enable you to connect up to God the Holy Spirit so you can walk in and keep God’s commandments heeding them as you became an adopted son or daughter of Jesus Christ and a servant to God and others. In order for your new spirit to connect up to God the Holy Spirit Who lives in you and to have communion {intimate fellowship} with Him, you must renew the spirit of your mind.
Ezekiel 36:26-27 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a {spiritual} heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. NKJV
Ephesians 4:23 And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude {mind-set}]. AMP
Romans 8:5-8 For those {unrepented sinners} who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those {children of Christ} who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit. 6Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit {which is demonic – James 3:15}] is {spiritual} death {eternal separation from God} [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever] {with God in His Kingdom of Heaven}. 7 [That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law {to live according to It}; indeed it cannot. 8 So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him {no chance of salvation}. AMP

In the PREFACE of this book, I shared with you the process of renewing your mind to better equip you for the life long process called sanctification. In this process, God sets you apart from the world and sin to be directly involved in His foreknown, preplanned, and predestined ministry/work for you. Your testimony is crucial in declaring His holiness and righteousness to the lost sinners of the world as you now make Him/Jesus Christ not only your Savior but also your Lord God and Master.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. NKJV
Romans 6:19 I am speaking in familiar human terms because of your natural limitations. For as you yielded your bodily members [and faculties] as servants to impurity and ever increasing lawlessness, so now yield your bodily members [and faculties] once for all as servants to righteousness (right being and doing) [which leads] to sanctification.
