The Saint’s Spiritual “ONENESS” With God and Each Other

PART 1

The Saint’s Spiritual “ONENESS” With God

Matthew 10:32 {Jesus Christ speaking} Therefore, everyone who acknowledges Me before men and confesses Me [out of a state of oneness with Me {God the Son/Son of Man}], I will also acknowledge him before My Father Who is in heaven and confess [that I am abiding in] him {the Saint who acknowledges Jesus Christ as their Savior, Lord God, and Master}. 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
Ephesians 2:21-22 In Him {Jesus Christ} the whole structure {Christ’s Bride Church} is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a {physical body – 1 Corinthians 6:19} sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord]. 22 In Him {Jesus Christ} [and in fellowship with one another] you yourselves also are being built up [into this structure{/temple}] with the rest {of the Bride Church}, to form a fixed abode (dwelling place) of God in (by, through) the Spirit. AMP

Prolog

Study the preceding Scriptures. Can you see in them the principle of the mystery of the Godhead – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – living in us? As this study progresses, not only will you learn that the Godhead lives in us, BUT that we live in the Godhead! This Bible Study is for us True Believers and the “ONENESS” relationships we have with God in PART 1 AND with each other in PART 2.
I pray this study will help you to understand the absolute necessity of overcoming sin in your lifestyle and this includes unrepented nagging ongoing sins, unrepented sexual sins, and unrepented homosexual sin. The preserving of your “ONENESS” with God is of the utmost importance! Your continued “ONENESS” with God assures you of being with Him for all of eternity.
Genesis 4:7 {God the Son speaking to Cain} If you do well {remain faithful and obedient to God}, will you not be accepted? {YES} And if you do not do well, sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you, but you must master it {Sins master – Satan comes to kill, steal, and destroy [John 10:10]! We must be aware of his schemes and tactics [2 Corinthians 2:11] to be continuously VICTORIOUS over him [Romans 8:35-39]!!! Do NOT let the glossing over of unrepented sin sneak up on you and spoil your present and eternal relationship with God!!!}. AMP

If as a Christian, you are NOT recognizing your sins, repenting of them, and striving to have VICTORY over them, your salvation is in EXTREMELY DEEP trouble with God!
Romans 8:37 Yet amid all these things {the tribulations of life} we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. AMP
1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. AMP

Do you think your continuous sinning whether repented of or not causes a problem in your relationship with God? How does a Christian overcome their unforgiveness from God? You/we MUST continuously repent! Whenever you recognize you have sinned, confess them immediately to God!!! If you do NOT think you are a sinner who needs to continuously repent, you are fooling yourself!!!
1 John 1:9 If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action]. AMP {BUT……}
1 John 1:8 If we say we have no sin [refusing to admit that we are sinners], we delude and lead ourselves astray, and the Truth [which the Gospel presents] is not in us [does not dwell in our hearts {You are fooling yourself! You are NOT saved!}]. AMP
1 John 1:10 If we say (claim) we have not sinned, we contradict His Word and make Him {God} out to be false and a liar, and His Word is not in us [the divine message of the Gospel is not in our hearts {Again, you are fooling yourself! You are NOT saved!}]. AMP

So how do we bridge this “sin gap” between what we think with our limited intellect to gain God’s unlimited forgiveness? How is God going to “level the playing field” to help us understand what happened to us when we were “Born Again.” When we were “Born Again,” we became a new spiritual creation that gave us a “ONENESS” with God and each other. Do you understand this? Can you accept this? Does your life reflect your being a “new spiritual creature” in Christ? I am going to ask you to start praying for the “sound mind of Christ” which gives you the SAME mind that God the Holy Spirit gave to Christ – “The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the reverential fear of the Lord” to help you not “short change” yourself to better understand God and His Word and to live a life that reflects God’s “ONENESS” within you.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but {rather He has given us a Spirit} of power and of love and of a sound mind. NKJV
1 Corinthians 2:16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ. NKJV
Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him {Jesus Christ}, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. NKJV

You may NOT believe that it is necessary nor beneficial for you to pray for the “sound mind of Christ,” and God did create you with a “free will” to make your own choices. But I can assure you that as a “True Believer” you are greatly “short changing yourself and your intellect” if you do not consistently pray for forgiveness and the sound mind of Christ!!!

Chapter I

Let’s define the term “ONENESS.” The word “oneness” is NOT used in most Bible translations, but its concept is clearly seen throughout the Bible as unity, harmony and love. The word “oneness” can mean “an entity having such unity, harmony, and love so as to be one.” This is the definition of the “Trinity” – the three Persons of the Godhead – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit – having such “oneness” – unity, harmony, and love to appear and act as one Being – God.
Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord [the only Lord]. AMP
1 John 5:7 So there are three witnesses in heaven: the Father, the Word {God the Son/Jesus Christ} and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one; AMP
Colossians 2:10 And you {God’s adopted children} are in Him {Jesus Christ}, 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

There are numerous passages that express this thought of unity/harmony/love without using the word “oneness.” All the way through Christ’s “Priestly Prayer” found in John chapter 17, Jesus shares with us the unity/harmony/love – “oneness” that He has with His Father. Then He shares about the unity/harmony/ love – “oneness” that He has with His original disciples {John 17:6-19}, and that He has the same unity/harmony/love – “oneness” with us – His adopted children {John 17:20-26}.
John 17:20-23 {Jesus praying to His Father} Neither for these alone {His original Disciples} do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those {the following generations of Saints} who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching, 21 That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me. 22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one {their having a “oneness”} [even] as We are one {have a “oneness”}: 23 I in them and You in Me {Jesus having a “oneness” with His Saints, and His Father having a “oneness” with us [John 14:23].}, in order that they may become one and perfectly united {that the Saints may have a perfect “oneness” with each other}, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me {Christ and His Father have a “oneness”} and that You have loved them {the Father has a “oneness” with Christ’s Saints the SAME as} [even] as You have loved Me {The Father’s love for His Son giving them this unity/harmony/love – “oneness.”} 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. {God the Father and God the Son are seated on their thrones in the third heaven. They as spirit live in us vicariously through God the Holy Spirit as the Godhead.} 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
Ephesians 2:21-22 In Him {Christ} the whole structure {of the Bride Church} is joined (bound, welded) together harmoniously, and it continues to rise (grow, increase) into a holy temple in the Lord [a sanctuary dedicated, consecrated, and sacred to the presence of the Lord]. 22 In Him [and in fellowship with one another] you yourselves also are being built up [into this structure] with the rest, to form a fixed abode (dwelling place) of God in (by, through) the Spirit. AMP
Colossians 2:10 And you are in Him {having a “ONENESS” with Christ}, 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

In the preceding John 17 text, can you see the unity/harmony/love – “oneness” of God the Father and His Son? Can you see the unity/harmony/love – “oneness” God and His Saints are to have? In PART 2, we will look at the unity/harmony/ love – “oneness” of the Saints of the Christian Church is SUPPOSED to have with each other? Sadly, most of us Saints really fall short on our unity/love with God, the “oneness” we are to have in our marriages, and with each other in Christ’s Bride Church!!!

Chapter II

What does it mean when the Bible states that we have a “ONENESS” with Christ/ God? Just how intricate, intimate, and vital a necessity is that in our relationship with God? Why MUST we remain physically and spiritually PURE i.e. be kept without unrepented sin and especially unrepented sexual sin! Too many Saints do NOT study the Ten Commandments as a guide for our lifestyle.
Psalms 14:2-3 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]. 3 They are all gone aside, they have all together become filthy; there is none that does good or right, no, not one. [Rom 3:11, 12.] AMP
Jeremiah 29:13-14a Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. [Deut 4:29-30.] 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord,…….AMP
Deuteronomy 5:6-10 I am the Lord your God, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. 7 You shall have no other gods before Me or besides Me. 8 You shall not make for yourself [to worship] a graven image or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth. 9 You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 10 And showing mercy and steadfast love to thousands and to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments. {How does God extend His love and mercy down through the future generations of man – Isaiah 41:4?} AMP
Deuteronomy 5:18 Neither shall you commit adultery. AMP
Deuteronomy 5:21 Neither shall you covet your neighbor’s wife, nor desire your neighbor’s house, his field, his manservant or his maidservant, his ox or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s. AMP

Chapter III

Our “oneness” of character with God, what does it mean? Most Christians are correctly taught that God the Holy Spirit lives in us Saints, BUT how many of you know, understand, and can accept that WE AS TRULY “BORN AGAIN” SAINTS/SPIRITUALLY ADOPTED CHILDREN OF GOD LIVE IN GOD? We are a PACKAGE deal – we in God and He in us! We become “ONE spirit” with Him!!!
John 6:56 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood {takes communion} dwells continually in Me, and I [in like manner dwell continually] in him. AMP
John 14:20 At that time [when that day comes] you will know [for yourselves] that I am in My Father, and you [are] in Me, and I [am] in you {We have a “ONENESS” with God!}. AMP
1 Corinthians 6:17 But the person who {is a “Born Again” adopted child of God} is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him. AMP

We all know that our salvation relationship with God starts when we are “Born Again” as a “new creation/creature” in Christ. Us as a “new spiritual creature” reveals some truly awesome internal spiritual Kingdom of God changes to each of us individually and corporately as adopted children in Christ’s Bride Church.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new {moral and spiritual condition} has come! AMP
Luke 17:21 Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is] {the Kingdom of God}! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is {spiritually} within you [in your {spiritual} hearts] and among you [surrounding you] {in Christ’s Bride Church}. AMP

Have you ever thought about how and what happens to you when you become this new creature in Christ? An easy physical example of what happens spiritually to a “sinner” who is “Born Again” can be compared to an ugly caterpillar/worm {you/ me as a sinner} being morphed {somehow being mysteriously and miraculously changed} into a beautiful butterfly {new spiritual creation/adopted child of God} by the Holy Spirit. An ugly “sinner” is encapsulated by God the Holy Spirit and emerges as a “new spiritual creature/adopted child of God.” Something magnificent and awesome has happened to us in this process!!!” Let’s see IF I can help you to understand this process of morphing – being spiritually transformed – that takes place when a sinner is “Born Again” into the Kingdom of God.
John 3:3-8 Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter his mother’s womb again and be born? 5 Jesus answered, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God. [Ezek 36:25-27.] 6 What is born of [from] the flesh is flesh [of the physical is physical]; and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not [do not be surprised, astonished] at My telling you, You must all be born anew (from above). 8 The wind blows (breathes) where it wills; and though you hear its sound, yet you neither know where it comes from nor where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. AMP

Chapter IV

The other evening I was watching Ravi Zacharias, a well-known worldwide Christian lecturer, teacher, apologist, etc., and he his topic was “What Does It Mean to Be Human?” I went on the internet and entered that topic. WOW!!! Was there a lot of websites sharing their thoughts! But as I was thinking about this subject, God brought to my mind, “What Does It REALLY Mean to Him for Us to Be Human?”

As I was closing Chapter III, I used the following Scripture which will help us to get started on, “What It Means To God for Us to Be Human?”
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new {moral and spiritual condition} has come! AMP
In the following Chapters IV–VIII, you will see the numerous spiritual transformations – “the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new {moral and spiritual condition} has come” –
that takes place inside of you and ALL truly “Born Again” Saints who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. To start with, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, you received a “new heart of flesh” which enables you to truly love and serve God and others. You also received a “new spirit” who will enable you to be “one spirit” with 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 become one spirit with God the Holy Spirit Who lives in you, and for you to have communion {intimate fellowship} with Him, you must renew the spirit of your mind.
Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. AMP

The following spiritual supernatural characteristics combine together to make you this “new spiritual creature!” This is why we MUST be continually praying for the “sound mind of Christ” to accept our “new spiritual nature” as it is revealed!
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 {live a life that reflects Me!}. NKJV
Deuteronomy 30:6 And the Lord your God will circumcise your {spiritual} hearts and the {spiritual} hearts of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with all your being, that you may live. AMP
Psalms 51:10 {King David asking God to} Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me. AMP
1 Corinthians 6:17 But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him. AMP

Chapter V

Previously, I shared the example of a worm/ugly sinner being morphed/changed into a beautiful butterfly/adopted child of God. The preceding text of John 3:3-8 –being “Born Again” – shares this as a spiritual rebirth which is the work of God the Holy Spirit in the transformation of a “sinners” life. There are five awesome things that instantly spiritually transforms you to make you a “new creation/creature” in Christ. I pray that you can understand the implications of the spiritual principles and the spiritual mystery that has taken place inside of you as a “True Believer” and incorporate them into your life! Please pray on your new creation using the “sound mind of Christ!” It is awesome! And if you have to read this study more than once to understand it, do it! Do not be ashamed!
Following is your new spiritual “STANDARD”/Kingdom of God spiritual profile. ALL True Believers are instantly imputed with this SAME spiritual “STANDARD”/Kingdom of God spiritual profile when they become a “new spiritual creation” in Christ. ALL “True Believers” have the SAME new spiritual “STANDARD” which can be defined as, “A person having new individual spiritual characteristics that are acceptable to God.” ALL of us Christians also have the SAME “Kingdom of God spiritual profile” which can be defined as, “A set of spiritual characteristics that identify a group of people – the Bride Church of Christ.” Let me repeat this again, ALL True Believers have this SAME spiritual “STANDARD”/spiritual profile in your/our new spiritual creation. You/we MUST understand this!!! You/we MUST learn to live this Kingdom of God teaching {KT} here in God’s Kingdom on earth {KL}!!!
Luke 17:21 Nor will people say, Look! Here [it is] {the Kingdom of God}! or, See, [it is] there! For behold, the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you] {encapsulating Christ’s Bride Church}. AMP

Each of your new spiritual characteristics 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. There are six characteristics:
As a “new creation” in Christ, God now looks at you as being 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 {sins} [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
1 Timothy 4:12 Let no one despise or think less of you because of your youth, but be an example (pattern) for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. AMP
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

Chapter VI

Some other really interesting God imputed spiritual characteristics happen to us in our NEW SPIRITUAL CREATION in Christ! Only those who are truly “Born Again” will partake in the “Divine Nature {of the Almighty.” God’s spiritual supernatural DNA.} – the very spiritual character of God. The following different translations of the same verse express this thought.
2 Peter 1:4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises {some 37,000}, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. NIV
2 Peter 1:4 And by that same mighty power he has given us all the other rich and wonderful blessings he promised {some 37,000 promises}; for instance, the promise to save us from the lust and rottenness all around us, and to give us {His now adopted children of God} his {God’s} own {spiritual} character. TLB

At the end of Chapter II, I used the following Scripture to help us get started to understand just who we are and what our ministries are in Christ our Savior:
2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new {spiritual} creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and {demonic} spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new {moral and spiritual condition} has come!” AMP

What “old” demonic spiritual characteristics were replaced by what “fresh and new” Godly spiritual characteristics? The Bible states that your old “spiritual condition” has passed away.
Colossians 3:8-10 But now you {as a new creation} must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. 9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new {spiritual} self, which is being renewed in {spiritual} knowledge in the {spiritual} image of its Creator. NIV

Does your new spiritual “STANDARD”/Kingdom of God spiritual profile develop in you its imputed spiritual characteristics of God’s “divine nature” – His new characteristics that enable you to live your daily life as found in the “Fruit of the Spirit?” YES! YES!! And YES!!!
2 Peter 1:4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. NKJV
1 John 2:15-17 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father [love of the Father – KJV, NKJV, NIV, NASU] 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]. 17 And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever. AMP
2 Peter 1:5-11 Fruitful Growth in the Faith. But also for this very reason, giving all diligence{not giving up}, add to your faith virtue {moral excellence}, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love {agape}. 8For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. 10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. NKJV
Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the {spiritual} work which His presence within accomplishes] is love {Agape – unconditional love for God and others}, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge]. AMP

Your new divine spiritual nature which helps you to partake of the “Fruit of the Spirit” also has “works” which must be implemented and reflected in your life according to the Golden Rule and the Royal Law of Christ. The proper implementing of the “Fruit of the Spirit” will bring to fruition in your life a shield of faith that will extinguish all of the flaming darts of the enemy.
Luke 6:31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. NKJV
Galatians 6:2 Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete what is lacking [in your obedience to it]. AMP
James 2:8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; NKJV
Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” NKJV
Ephesians 6:13, 16 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. NKJV

Not only are all truly “Born Again” Saints imputed with the SAME spiritual “STANDARD”/spiritual profile of God, BUT we also partake of the SAME spiritual supernatural DNA of God! Can you see the imputed spiritual supernatural development that is taking place in you? ALL of us truly “Born Again” Saints have the SAME spiritual supernatural “STANDARD”/Kingdom of God spiritual profile and the SAME spiritual supernatural DNA of God which gives us new spiritual supernatural characteristics that shapes the way we conduct and live our lives physically and spiritually in the world giving us a spiritual supernatural “ONENESS” with God and with each other within the Body of Christ that is beyond our comprehension.

Chapter VII

To further develop our “ONENESS” with God and each other, we find that we now have become “one spirit” with God.
1 Corinthians 6:17 But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him. AMP

How does Scripture define this? To me, this is truly awesome how God the Holy Spirit is able to transverse spiritually between God and us instantly revealing God’s thoughts to us instantly!!! Take the following text apart to see how God the Holy Spirit wants to work in you! Paul is sharing how God the Holy Spirit shares with True Believers God and the things of God!
1 Corinthians 2:7-16 {Paul speaking} But rather what we are setting forth is {a mystery – } a wisdom of God once hidden [from the human understanding {of the Make Believer and the Unbeliever}] and now revealed to us {True Believers} by God {the Holy Spirit}–[that wisdom] which God devised and decreed before the ages {before time began} for our glorification [to lift us into the glory of His presence] {as we are spiritually seated next to Christ and His Father in the Third Heaven – Ephesians 2:6}. 8 None of the rulers of this age or world perceived and recognized and understood this {they were spiritually blinded, made deaf, and ignorant by Satan – 2 Corinthians 4:4}, for if they had, they would never have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says {about the True Believer}, What {spiritual} eye has not seen and {spiritual} ear has not heard and has not entered into the {spiritual} heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) {in His spiritual Kingdom} for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]. [Isa 64:4; 65:17.]
10 Yet to us {True Believers using the sound mind of Christ} God has unveiled and revealed them {His principles and His mysteries} by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything {Godly principles and mysteries}, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond {sinful} man’s scrutiny]. 11 For what person perceives (knows and understands) what passes through a man’s thoughts except the man’s own spirit within him? Just so no one discerns (comes to know and comprehend) the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12 Now we {True Believers} have not received the {earthy, unspiritual, demonic – James 3:15} spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the [Holy] Spirit Who is from God, [given to us] that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts [of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly] bestowed on us by God. 13 And we {True Believers} are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the [Holy] Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language [This is Kingdom Teaching to those {True Believers} who possess the Holy Spirit].
14 But the natural, nonspiritual {Make Believer and Unbeliever woman/} man does not accept or welcome or admit into his heart the gifts and teachings and revelations {of the mysteries and principles} of the Spirit of God, for they are folly (meaningless nonsense) to him; and he is incapable of knowing them [of progressively recognizing, understanding, and becoming better acquainted with them] {God’s principles because his/her mindset cannot comprehend them – Romans 8:7-8} because they are spiritually discerned and estimated and appreciated {They are completely overwhelmed and baffled by them to the extent they cannot even seek them!}.
15 But the spiritual man {True Believer} tries all things [he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things], yet is himself to be put on trial and judged by no one [he can read the meaning of everything, but no one {Make Believer or Unbeliever} can properly discern or appraise or get an insight into him] {truly understands where he/she is coming from}. 16 For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the {spiritual supernatural sound} mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. AMP
1 Corinthians 12:13 For by [means of the personal agency of] one [Holy] Spirit we were all, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, baptized [and by baptism united together] into one body {Christ’s Bride Church}, and all made to drink of one [Holy] Spirit. AMP
Ephesians 4:3-4 Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace. 4 [There is] one body and one Spirit — just as there is also one hope [that belongs] to the calling you received. AMP
Philippians 2:5 Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:] AMP

CHAPTER VIII

I pray this study of our “ONENESS” with God will help you to know, understand, and live a life that demonstrates that the Godhead lives in us, and WE as “Born Again” adopted children of God are living in God. To me this is mind boggling!!! I did NOT know this until recently! It’s hard enough to believe, know, and understand how the Holy Spirit indwells us, BUT how can I live in God? As you read the following texts, you will see the answer is because of God’s AGAPE for us from BEFORE time began, our current LOVE for Him, and our LOVE for each other! The Godhead lives in us “Born Again” True Believers and we live in God! In the following texts, Jesus shares with us truly “Born Again” Saints that we can dwell in the Him and He will live in us!
John 17:21-23 That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me. 22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one: 23 I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me. AMP
John 15:1-16 “Jesus speaking} “I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. 2 Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing {spiritual fruit – does NOT win lost sinners to Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.}] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit. 3 You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].
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 {physical} fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the {life giving physical} vine, neither can you bear {spiritual} fruit unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the {spiritual} Vine; you are the {spiritual} branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant {spiritual}) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.
6 “If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. 8 When you bear (produce) much {spiritual} fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine.
9 “I have loved you, [just] as the Father has loved Me; abide in My love [continue in His love with Me]. 10 If you keep My commandments [if you continue to obey My instructions], you will abide in My love and live on in it, just as I have obeyed My Father’s commandments and live on in His love. 11 I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing.
12 “This is My commandment: that you love one another [just] as I have loved you. 13 No one has greater love [no one has shown stronger affection] than to lay down (give up) his own life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you keep on doing the things which I command you to do. 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.]
16 “You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear {much spiritual} fruit {using your testimony to win sinners to Christ as their personal Savior} and keep on bearing, and that your {spiritual} fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide {for all eternity}], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you.” AMP
Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise. NKJV

The following text is as good as it gets sharing with us our “ONENESS” with God! Follow and count the number of X’s – God’s indwelling/living in us and the number of Y’s – our indwelling/living in Him.
1 John 4:12-16 No man has at any time [yet] seen God. But if we love one another, God {spiritually} abides (lives and remains) in us {X} 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 {spiritually} abide (live and remain) in Him {Y} and He in us {X}: 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 {X} and he [abides, lives, makes his home] in God {Y}. 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 {Y}, and God dwells and continues in him {X}. AMP {Isn’t this is an awesome text?! Four X’s for God dwelling/living in us and three Y’s for us dwelling/living in Him ALL through AGAPE/LOVE.}
Ephesians 1:5 For He {God the Father} foreordained us ({pre}destined us, planned in love for us) {BEFORE the foundation of the world} to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ {for us to be in spiritual “oneness” with Him}, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]– AMP

Summary

Isn’t God truly amazing!? Have you ever thought about you as a “Born Again” adopted Children of God dwelling in God and He in you? Did you know that you/ we have a spiritual supernatural “ONENESS” with God that is truly “out of this world?”

PART I shared with us that as a “new spiritual creature” in Christ that God imputed to you a new spiritual “STANDARD”/Kingdom of God spiritual profile, that you partook of God’s spiritual DNA, that you were “one spirit” with Him, and that you live in God, and that God lives in you!

It is imperative that you/us learn to be VICTORIOUS over sin in our lives. Unrepented sins and as we will see in Booklet 4 especially unrepented sexual and unrepented homosexual sin destroys our “ONENESS” with God!

You must understand that we will NEVER be God, but that He and us are so intricately and intimately involved that NOTHING can EVER separate us from His AGAPE!!! We MUST understand, remember, and live our lives to give God His due glory, honor, and praise.
Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. NKJV

PART 2

The Saint’s Spiritual “ONENESS” With Each Other.

Ephesians 4:13 [That it might develop] until we {Christ’s Bride Church} all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature {spiritual womanhood and} manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him. AMP

Prolog

In this portion of this study, we will be looking at our “ONENESS” with each other in Christ’s Bride Church. The word “oneness” can also mean a group/Body having such unity, harmony, and love so as to be seen as one. This “ONENESS” depicts Christ’s Bride Church/Body to be in such unity and harmony so as to be of “one accord and purpose.”
Philippians 2:1-6 Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, 2 make my {Paul’s} joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. 3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; 4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus. NASU

How does this “ONENESS” work in our lives? Who is the “common denominator” for these two definitions for “ONENESS” with God AND each other to work in our lives? Who makes them work in tandem – one with the other in our lives? It is us – the True Believers in Christ’s Bride Church. Follow the process that reveals our “ONENESS” with each other.

While this “one accord” is what God demands for Christ’s Bride Church, I believe in actuality that too many members of the Christian Church look like a porcupine that is ready to attack other Saints inside of Christ’s Church – its quills sticking out in all directions to attack their opponents to achieve their social agenda in abortion, same sex marriage, sexual sin, and any other liberal agendas.
2 Peter 2:1-3 But there were false prophets, too, in those days, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly tell their lies about God, turning against even their Master who bought them; but theirs will be a swift and terrible end. 2 Many will follow their evil teaching that there is nothing wrong with sexual sin. And because of them Christ and his way will be scoffed at. 3 These teachers in their greed will tell you anything to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago and their destruction is on the way. TLB

Chapter I

What does the Bible mean when It states that we have a “ONENESS” with God/ Jesus Christ and with each other as brothers and sisters in Christ’s Bride Church as it relates to “marriage?”
Ephesians 5:25-32 Husbands, love your wives, 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 Even so husbands should love their wives as [being in a sense] {having a “ONENESS” with} their own bodies. 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.] 32 This mystery is very great, but I speak concerning [the relation of] Christ and the church. AMP

The example and resolution of this mystery of our “ONENESS” with God and each other can also be seen in the PURENESS in marriage called the “sanctity of marriage” – a holy sacred union between one man and one woman – a “ONENESS” for as long as both shall live. The “ONENESS” in marriage between a man and a woman is illustrative of the mystery of the “ONENESS” that the members of the Christ’s Bride Church have with Christ/God.
Genesis 2:24 {God speaking} Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh {through sexual union}. [Matt 19:5; 1 Cor 6:16; Eph 5:31-33.] AMP
Mark 10:9 What therefore God has united (joined together) {in marriage}, let not man separate or divide. AMP
Ephesians 5:31-32 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh {have a “ONENESS” to remain pure to each other}.” 32 This is a profound mystery — but I am talking about Christ and the church {and our remaining pure – without sin – in our “ONENESS” in marriage and in our relationship with God!}. NIV

Many Christians believe that “sin is sin,” and it is true that God’s initial judgment is the same for all unrepented sins! What I am trying to share is that we MUST understand the dire consequences of unrepented sins, unrepented sexual sin, and the sin of unrepented homosexuality, and what this unrepentedness does to the “ONENESS” and “PURITY” in our marriage and to our “ONENESS” and “PURITY” with God and His adopted children in Christ’s Bride Church. I believe that ALL unrepented sins have the SAME judgment – losing one’s salvation thus not eternally residing with God in His Kingdom but being eternally separated from God in Hell. But as we will learn in Booklet 4, normal sins are committed outside of the human body, but all sexual sins are committed inside of our body and left as unrepented destroys our “ONENESS” with God.
Hebrews 13:4 Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things. And thus let the marriage bed be undefiled (kept undishonored); for God will judge and punish the unchaste [all guilty of sexual vice] and adulterous. AMP
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality, 10 Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor foulmouthed revilers and slanderers, nor extortioners and robbers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God. AMP
Galatians 5:19-21 Now the doings (practices) {sins} of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency, 20 Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies), 21 Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. AMP

While the preceding texts appears to make ALL sin equal in God’s judgment, I believe that God has “degrees” for different levels of judgment for unrepented sins with unrepented sexual sin having a higher penalty of judgment and unrepented homosexual sin having the highest penalty of judgment. I believe these degrees for different levels of judgment are indicated in the wording of the following texts.
2 Corinthians 12:21 I am afraid that when I come again my God will humble me before you, and I will be grieved over many who have sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual sin and debauchery in which they have indulged. NIV
1 Corinthians 5:11 What I meant was that you are not to keep company with anyone who claims to be a brother Christian but indulges in sexual sins, or is greedy, or is a swindler, or worships idols, or is a drunkard, or abusive. Don’t even eat lunch with such a person. TLB
Romans 1:24-32 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves {male and male, female and female} [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin], 25 Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it). [Jer 2:11.]
26 For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one, 27 And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another — men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution.
28 And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base {morally low mindset} and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome, 29 Until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice. [They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers, 30 Slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance, [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents. 31 [They were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless. 32 Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them. AMP
Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination {something GREATLY disliked by God}. [1 Cor 6:9, 10.] AMP
Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as if he were a woman, both men have committed an offense (something perverse, unnatural, abhorrent, and detestable); they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. AMP
Of course the sin of “blasphemy” envelopes and precedes all other unrepented sins – the denying and thwarting of God the Holy Spirit’s work in one’s life to convict them of sin, righteousness, and judgment and their need for Christ as their personal Savior which causes them eternal separation from God in Hell.
Luke 12:10 And everyone who makes a statement or speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit [that is, whoever intentionally comes short of the reverence due the Holy Spirit], it will not be forgiven him [for him there is no forgiveness]. AMP
John 16:8 And when He {God the Holy Spirit} comes {into your heart and life}, He will convict and convince the {peoples of the} world and bring demonstration to it about sin and about righteousness (uprightness of heart and right standing with God) and about judgment: AMP
1 John 5:11-12 And this is that testimony (that evidence): God gave us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 12 He who possesses the Son has that life; he who does not possess the Son of God does not have that life. AMP

Chapter II

I would like to share some thoughts and Scriptures with you about our spiritual “oneness” with God and each other. This spiritual “oneness” with God encompasses an extra amount and depth of faith and service to Him and others rather than just greeting each other with a nice smile and saying “hello.” NO HUMAN WHETHER SAVED OR UNSAVED WILL EVER BE GOD!!! But when a sinner is “Born Again” and becomes a new spiritual creation inside, he/she now shares with God some of His spiritual supernatural characteristics that are unique to Him and Him ONLY!

In PART I, I have shared our new “STANDARD”/spiritual profile, and our shared “DNA” {Divine Nature of the Almighty} through the Fruit of the Spirit which indeed makes each Saint the SAME but still having individuality, but we are ALL the SAME corporately in Christ’s Bride Church {We have a “oneness” of God’s spiritual supernatural character.}. We as spiritually begotten adopted children of God are ALL of the SAME spiritual supernatural family of God. We not only have a spiritual “oneness” with God, but also we have a spiritual “oneness” with each other as part of the family of God living here on earth in the spiritual supernatural Kingdom of God!
Philippians 3:8-9 Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the priceless gain of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I have put aside all else, counting it worth less than nothing, in order that I can have Christ, 9 and become one with him, no longer counting on being saved by being good enough or by obeying God’s laws, but by trusting Christ to save me; for God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith-counting on Christ alone. TLB
Matthew 10:32 Therefore, everyone who acknowledges Me before men and confesses Me [out of a state of oneness with Me], I will also acknowledge him before My Father Who is in heaven and confess [that I am abiding in] him. AMP
Ephesians 4:3 {You} Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit {within Christ’s Bride Church} in the binding power of peace. AMP
Philippians 2:1-5 Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2 fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4 Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. 5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. NKJV {OMIT?}
John 1:12-13 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name– [Isa 56:5.]
13Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!] AMP
1 Peter 4:17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? NIV
Ephesians 4:13 [That it might develop {our faith}] until we all {Christ’s Bride Church/Body} attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him. AMP

Before closing, in PART I Chapter III, I used the similitude of an ugly worm being morphed into a beautiful butterfly – a sinner becoming a new creature in Christ. I ask you to think about our spiritual “ONENESS” with God. As you can see from this study, all truly “Born Again” Saints have the SAME spiritual make up/characteristics. As we look at our physical make up/characteristics, we find the ALL humans have the SAME physical characteristics – flesh, bone, blood, DNA, arms, legs, a body, etc. To me this is very interesting!!! The foreknown and predestined plans that God made for the different creatures – angels and man – of His creation are ALL built on similarly spiritually!

Summary

In closing this spiritual “ONENESS” study of the Godhead having within Itself such unity/harmony/love – “oneness,” and the Godhead having such unity/ harmony/love – “oneness” with and for us Saints, and then Christ’s Bride Church corporately having a unity/harmony/love – “oneness” within itself, we now can prepare ourselves for the next study. We are now going to study the unity/love – “oneness” of husband and wife which will be our example showing how God looks at the consummated act of sexual intercourse between a husband and wife that creates a “ONENESS” in that union, and how it directly relates to the MYSTERY of our marriage to God and our spiritual “ONENESS” with Him and how sexual sin destroys our “ONENESS”/unity with Him.
Genesis 2:24 {God speaking} Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh {consummating their marriage through sexual intercourse of male and female}. [Matt 19:5; 1 Cor 6:16; Eph 5:31-33.] AMP
Ephesians 5:31-32 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.] 32 This mystery is very great, but I speak concerning [the relation of] Christ and the church {us true Christians}. AMP
2 Corinthians 11:2 {Paul speaking} For I am zealous for you with a godly eagerness and a divine jealousy, for I have betrothed you to one Husband, to present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. [Hos 2:19, 20.] AMP
1 Corinthians 6:13b …….. The {human} body is not intended for sexual immorality {sexual sin is inside one’s body – 1 Corinthians 6:18}, but [is intended] for the Lord, and the Lord [is intended] for the body {because the Godhead lives in the Saint’s body} [to save, sanctify, and raise it again]. AMP
1 Corinthians 6:18 Shun immorality and all sexual looseness [flee from impurity in thought, word, or deed]. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. AMP

This will be revealed in detail in Booklet 4 – “Sexual Sin vs. All Other Sins of Man.” Booklet 3 and Booklet 4 will be joined as one unit.

AMEN and AMEN!
