The Mystery of Having and Developing
An Eternal Living Relationship
With the Living Loving God Revealed.

Over the centuries, man has always questioned whether there even was a “god.” Now in the early 21st century there is an alarming twisted retort about God. Many people are saying AND believing, “Man can actually live WITHOUT God!” Actually, both statements are similar in that “I do not really care IF there is a god, I just do not want to have anything to do with he/she/it period!”

I pray this study will reveal to you the truth to the above opinions. YES, man may THINK he can physically live without “god” – whoever or whatever or IF anything It might be in their daily lives, BUT what man has forgotten or is not aware of is that the true living loving God created man in His SPIRITUAL image which makes it IMPOSSIBLE to TOTALLY physically live without God being part of a naturally conceived person/offspring’s life! God not only created man with as a “physical being,” but each naturally conceived human zygote has a “God formed spirit” placed in it at its conception! This is what this study is about – YOUR having an eternal living relationship with God and what it means to you!

Genesis 2:7 Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being {soul – KJV}. [1 Cor 15:45-49.] AMP

Zechariah 12:1 THE BURDEN or oracle (the thing to be lifted up) of the word of the Lord concerning Israel: Thus says the Lord, Who stretches out the heavens and lays the foundation of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him {at conception which stays within him/her until their death}: AMP

God has never been rousingly popular throughout history with His creatures who have a “spirit” {angels and man} that can commune with God! In fact, at one time there was only ONE man on the earth who loved and worshipped and served God.

Genesis 6:9 He {Noah} was the only truly righteous man living on the earth at that time. He tried always to conduct his affairs according to God’s will. TLB
And when Jesus Christ/God the Son came to earth some 2000 years ago, the world and His own Jewish People rejected Him.

John 1:10-11 He {Jesus Christ/God the Son} came into the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him [did not know Him]. 11 He came to that which belonged to Him [to His own — His domain, creation, things, world], and they who were His own {the Jewish People} did not receive Him and did not welcome Him.

As you ponder the following study, write down in a journal the “MYSTERIES” that are revealed about God and His very personal and intimate relationship He has had with YOU written in His Book of Life from BEFORE time and the successive ages began. I just marvel at the consistency of God that He reveals about Himself from His Word and His Agape/love for all men and women of every and all spiritual and political persuasions and ethnicities on the earth of those who have sought Him throughout all of history. I pray you will realize “TODAY” that He has this same desire for a personal relationship with YOU through your faith in Jesus Christ and YOUR developing a personal relationship with Him.

Malachi 3:6a For I am the Lord, I do not change;…… AMP

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages). AMP

Lamentations 3:25 The Lord is good to those who wait hopefully and expectantly for Him, to those who seek Him [inquire of and for Him and require Him by right of necessity and on the authority of God’s word]. AMP

1 Timothy 2:3-4 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior, 4 Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth. AMP

In my other studies, I have shared with you that we truly “Born Again” Saints have a very personal “ONENESS” relationship with God – the Godhead lives in us through the Holy Spirit and we live in God. This is a truly unique and marvelous revelation about the relationship of God and His adopted {“Born Again”} children.

John 15:4 Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me {No Saint can be productive in a ministry for God UNLESS he/she has this “ONENESS” with God!}. AMP

1 John 4:12-16 No man has at any time [yet] seen God. But if we love one another, God abides (lives and remains) in us and His love (that love which is essentially His) is brought to completion (to its full maturity, runs its full course, is perfected) in us! 13 By this we come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we abide (live and remain) in Him and He in us: because He has given (imparted) to us of His [Holy] Spirit. 14 And [besides] we ourselves have seen (have deliberately and steadfastly contemplated) and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son [as the] Savior of the world. 15 Anyone who confesses (acknowledges, owns) that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides (lives, makes His home) in him and he [abides, lives, makes his home] in God. 16 And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him. AMP

Ephesians 1:5 For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent] — AMP

The Gospel Message with Its Savior – Jesus Christ has been revealed since the beginning of man:
Genesis 3:15 And I {God} will put enmity{/hostility} between you {Satan} and the woman {Eve}, and between your offspring {demon possessed and controlled humans} and her Offspring {Jesus Christ and His truly “Born Again” adopted children of God}; He {Jesus Christ} will bruise and tread your head underfoot{ultimately defeat Satan}, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel {try to physically kill Him to have victory over Him}. [Gal 4:4-6.] AMP

In this study, I want to emphasize the complete Gospel Message of salvation – that you MUST have a PERSONAL relationship with Jesus Christ/The Son of Man/God the Son. This means that you as being truly “Born Again” have a talking/ praying and walking rapport with God by the leading of God the Holy Spirit!

John 3:3-8 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 “Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” NASB

I am going to use this phrase many times throughout this study to, “Please think about this!” Most good Christian Churches have catechism classes and/or church new member classes that include teaching Jesus Christ as man’s ONLY true Savior. As you take these classes, the teacher will ask everyone in the class as to whether they want to “accept Jesus Christ as their Savior” of their life. Of course ALMOST everyone will say “yes,” because this is what you THINK you should do! They will then tell you “for everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord {Jesus Christ} will be saved” {Romans 10:13} which is TRUE! But IF you do not develop a “personal relationship” with Jesus Christ during your life time, I believe that all you have is “head knowledge” about Him. You do NOT have an “intimate personal spiritual mindset and spiritual heart knowledge and relationship” with Him which you MUST develop to be able to truly worship Him in Spirit and Truth!

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

So how do YOU gain this “intimate personal spiritual relationship” with Jesus Christ/God the Son and then acquire a more personal spiritual mindset and spiritual heart knowledge about Him and the Godhead?”

The most basic thing you MUST do is to accept Jesus Christ as your PERSONAL Savior! By PERSONAL Savior, I mean that you talk to and listen to Him as you would talk and listen to an intimate friend. Then you do and live as His Word instructs :

John 15:15 I do not call you servants (slaves) any longer, for the servant does not know what his master is doing (working out). But I have called you My friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from My Father. [I have revealed to you everything that I have learned from Him {to help you live a VICTORIOUS life}.] AMP
James 2:26 For as the human body apart from the spirit is lifeless, so faith apart from [its] works of obedience is also dead. AMP

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please pray this short “sinners prayer” to God the Father NOW:
“Heavenly Father, I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins and allow Jesus Christ to come into my spiritual heart and mind and life as my Savior. May your Holy Spirit help me to lead a dedicated life to You. Thank You – in Jesus’ Name I pray.”

If you have fallen away from your faith in Jesus Christ and God and want to restore your personal faith and relationship with them, please pray this short prayer NOW:
“Dear Heavenly Father, I have sinned by falling away from my faith in Jesus and You. Please forgive me of my sins and restore my faith in Jesus and You and accept me back into Your Family – in Jesus’ Name I pray.”

Congratulations!!! Welcome to the “Family of God!” Now as a new or restored believer, you must start praying addressing God the Father and closing your prayers in Jesus’ Name for ALL things:

Pray for God to lead you to a good solid welcoming church who has true teachings from God’s Word.
Ask God the Holy Spirit to equip you with the “sound mind of Christ” so you can grasp, absorb, and appreciate God’s love for you, so you can see and live His foreknown and predestined plans for you, and find His revelations for your life from His Word for you.
Ask God the Holy Spirit to help you pick out a good readable hard copy Bible Translation.
You MUST be continually reading your Bible!!! And as you read His Word, be praying/asking God the Holy Spirit to help you understand, apply, and obey His Word using the sound mind of Christ.
Ask God the Holy Spirit to reveal to you who you are spiritually as a “new creation in Christ” having His “STANDARD/”spiritual profile and partaking of His divine nature by living His “fruit of the Spirit” in your daily life.
Seek God the Holy Spirit’s leading and guiding for your new life.
Seek God the Holy Spirit’s “gifts” for your ministry.
Get involved in ministry using your gifts with your new church.
Learn to watch God the Holy Spirit work through answered prayer in your life and ministry.
Ask God the Holy Spirit to teach you how to use Kingdom of God Teaching {KT} to live Kingdom of God Living {KL} in the kingdoms of the world and its “god” – Satan.

The MORE intimate that you become with God, the MORE you will pray to Him and the MORE you see your prayers answered which helps you to know Him MORE. This helps you to trust Him MORE and the MORE you trust Him the MORE you will obey Him and His Word, and you will find yourself LOVING Him MORE and MORE and MORE as He desires and as He loves you!!! As this loves grows and develops, the MORE of His peace and security you will have in your life regardless as to what is actually happening around you!

1 John 4:19 We love Him, because He first loved us. AMP
John 14:23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. AMP

1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, AMP

Colossians 2:10 And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead — Father, Son and Holy Spirit — and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power]. AMP

John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] AMP

Luke 19:42 {Jesus} Exclaiming, Would that you had known personally, even at least in this your day, the things that make for peace (for freedom from all the distresses that are experienced as the result of sin and upon which your peace — your security, safety, prosperity, and happiness — depends)! But now they are hidden from your eyes. AMP

To develop a personal living loving spiritual relationship with God, I believe we do it in much the SIMILAR ways we develop knowledge about and have physical relationships with other people – by acknowledging them, by having many conversations with them, by inquiring and learning about them, by being involved with them, by thinking about them, by trusting them, by trying to serve them, etc. – in general just trying to learn to “love” them by becoming more knowledgeable and intimate with them! The Scriptural example for us to love God is found in the marriage passage in Ephesians Chapter 5. Here is my rendered spiritual version for you to learn to live for and love and worship and serve God and then love and serve Christ’s Bride Church with all of your heart, mind, strength, and soul/very being. I must interpolate {insert spiritual implications with the physical meaning} of this text:

Ephesians 5:21-33 {For us “Bride Church” Members} Be subject to one another {and to God} out of reverence{/love} for Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). 22 Wives {us Saints as part of Christ’s Bride Church}, be subject (be submissive and adapt yourselves) to your own husbands {Jesus Christ as your husband – Isaiah 54:5; 2 Corinthians 11:2} as [a service] to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife {in physical marriage} as Christ is the {spiritual} Head of the church, Himself the {personal} Savior of [His] body. 24 As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives {the Bride of Christ} also be subject in everything to their husbands {Jesus Christ as our husband}. 25 Husbands, love your wives {ALL members of Christ’s Bride Church love one another}, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, 27 That He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless].
28 {Physically} Even so husbands should love their wives as [being in a sense] their own bodies {becoming “one” with them – Genesis 2:24}. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 29 For no man ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and carefully protects and cherishes it, as Christ does the church, 30 Because we are members (parts) of His body. 31 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. [Gen 2:24.] {The members of Christ’s Bride Church will have a physical and spiritual “ONENESS” with each other and a spiritual “ONENESS” with God.} 32 This mystery is very great, but I speak concerning [the relation of] Christ and the church {and Its members}. 33 However, let each man of you {as a husband} [without exception] love his wife {she also being a member of Christ’s Bride Church} as [being in a sense] his very own self {having a “ONENESS” with his wife and Christ’s “ONENESS” with us – verses 25b-27}; and let the wife {the members of Christ’s Bride Church} see that she respects and reverences her husband {the Lord Jesus Christ} [that she {the Bride Church} notices him, regards him, honors him, prefers him, venerates, and esteems him; and that she defers to him, praises him, and loves and admires him exceedingly]. [1 Peter 3:2.] {Verse 33 explains what each member of Christ’s Bride Church PERSONAL relationship should be with Jesus Christ/God our husband and with each of us in His Bride Church!} AMP

Matthew 22:37 And He {Jesus} replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). [Deut 6:5.] AMP

You can only do this IF you realize that you/we as a “new creature” in Christ MUST now solely love, worship, and serve God in His spiritual Kingdom of God and NOT in the kingdoms of the world:

John 4:23-24 A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers. 24 God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality). AMP

Luke 17:21 Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is]! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you {spiritually and personally} [in your hearts] and among you [{individually and} surrounding you {corporately as Christ’s Bride Church}]. AMP

1 John 2:15-16 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things] — these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself].
