© Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appers, we will be like Him…

We now need to take a look at how God orchestrates the spiritual redemption/renovation/ restoration and completeness of each sinner who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior (1) back to the original “STANDARD”/Spiritual Profile and the Divine Nature of God of original Adam BEFORE he sinned and of Jesus Christ the Son of Man Who knew no sin. (2)
(1) 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 {spiritual condition} has come!                                    (2 Corinthians 5:17)AMP
(2) For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness]. (1 Corinthians 5:21) AMP


I am going to define three words that I will use in this chapter – impute, “STANDARD” and Spiritual Profile. As I use the word “impute” in this booklet, it means that God is going to “either credit something to or charge something against your individual account on your page in His Book of Remembrance.” (3) God has two sets of Books. One is the Book of Life in which He has written all of your foreknown and predestined plans for your life. (4) The other Book is the Book of Remembrance in which He keeps an account of your good works. (5)  
(3) Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name. (Malachi 3:16) AMP
(3a) You number and record my wanderings; put my tears into Your bottle — are they not in Your book? (Psalms 56:8) AMP
(4) I [also] saw the dead, great and small; they stood before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is [the Book] of Life. And the dead were judged (sentenced) by what they had done [their whole way of feeling and acting, their aims and endeavors] in accordance with what was recorded in the books. (Revelation 20:12) AMP
(4a) For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome {Titus 1:2}. (Jeremiah 29:11) AMP
(5) But someone will say [to you then], You [say you] have faith, and I have [good] works. Now you show me your [alleged] faith apart from any [good] works [if you can], and I by [good] works [of obedience] will show you my faith. (James 2:18) AMP

The word “STANDARD” means to use something of “excellence” to be the “STANDARD”/ example for a comparison. I am going to use Jesus Christ as my example/“STANDARD” of excellence for a comparison. (6)
(6) For even to this were you called [it is inseparable from your vocation]. For Christ also suffered for you, leaving you [His personal] example, so that you should follow in His footsteps. He was guilty of no sin, neither was deceit (guile) ever found on His lips.  [Isa 53:9.] (1 Peter 2:21-22) AMP
(6a) It has been reported the United States Treasury Department agents study only U. S. Treasury bills of various denominations so they can easily spot a counterfeit bill. The same principle applies to a Christian who should be reading and studying his or her Bible DAILY so that he/she can easily spot a counterfeit/Make Believer and also a counterfeit Word of God/Bible.

The word “profile” as I use it in this booklet means to “classify groups of people according to certain characteristics.” The Federal Government, many Federal Agencies, and many police and sheriff departments have been accused of making profiles/classifying groups of people of interest. To have a Christian profile means that all truly “Born Again” Christians (a group/body of people) have imputed/credited to their individual spiritual account the SAME “STANDARD” (7) and these characteristics and gifts should be spiritually classified corporately with their Savior Jesus Christ as His Bride Church. (8)
(7) Our bodies have many parts, but the many parts make up only one body when they are all put together. So it is with the “body” of Christ. Each of us is a part of the one body of Christ. Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But the Holy Spirit has fitted us all together into one body. We have been baptized into Christ’s body by the one Spirit, and have all been given that same Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13) TLB
(8) But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, 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]. And those who belong to Christ Jesus (the Messiah) have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires. If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.] (Galatians 5:22-25) AMP

Paul with some help from Peter describes for us that the only way to have God’s “STANDARD” /Spiritual Profile and Divine Nature of God reimputed to man is through a sinner/a person being “Born Again” through a true faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. So what does this “STANDARD”/Spiritual Profile of God look like? Remember this was the “STANDARD” of original Adam before he sinned, of Jesus Christ the Son of Man Who was without sin, and is now the “STANDARD” for ALL truly “Born Again Christians.” I will never forget God’s reply to me when many years ago I asked Him whether I could be of the same make-up as sinless Adam. His reply in the form of a question was, “Would I have more than one ‘STANDARD?’” Of course the answer to that is a resounding NO!!! We must remember that everything that God created was “very good.” (Genesis 1:30) So, what is your new creation? What does your spiritual redemption/renovation/restoration look like? Please remember that we are saved by God’s free gift of grace and then we have required works that God foreknew and predestined for us. (9)
(9) For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God; Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.] 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]. (Ephesians 2:8-10) AMP

This is how God the Father looks at each Saint and their faith in Jesus Christ and the cleansing of ALL their sins by His shed blood. (10) We stay this way in our relationship with God by continual repenting. (11)
(10) Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. (Isaiah 1:18) AMP
(10a) But if we [really] are living and walking in the Light, as He [Himself] is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations]. (1 John 1:7) AMP
(11) 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]. (1 John 1:9) AMP

I will use Scripture to reveal the “Born Again” Saint’s new “STANDARD”/Spiritual Profile and the Scripture that has the letter (a) in front of it will reveal the work of that particular “STANDARD”/Spiritual Profile:
You are without sin:
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). (2 Corinthians 5:19) AMP
(a) 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]. 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). 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.                             (2 Corinthians 5:18-20) AMP
You are righteous:
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. (Philippians 3:9) AMP
(a) Now it is evident that no person is justified (declared righteous and brought into right standing with God) through the Law, for the Scripture says, The man in right standing with God [the just, the righteous] shall live by and out of faith and he who through and by faith is declared righteous and in right standing with God shall live.  [Hab 2:4; Heb 10:38.] (Galatians 3:11) AMP
You are perfect:
To the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect.
            (Hebrews 12:23) NIV
(a) 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.] (Matthew 5:48) AMP
You are holy:
And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. (Hebrews 13:12) NIV
(a) 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. (Romans 12:1) NIV
You are pure:
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.  (1 John 3:2-3) NASU
(a) 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.       (Philippians 4:8-9) NKJV
You are blessed:
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. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:28-29) NKJV
(a) Loving God Under Trials. Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. (James 1:12) NKJV
