       Like other activity in life, internet does have evils that distract the truth from us. But it is also an essential tool for my normal life, like efficiency of buying things I need, paying bills and important communication like this survey. I just have to be sure I am not distracted and waste my time on junk. (I never have time for games.)

Without exception and very strongly a desire came forth among all present to be washed in the Word.  For the last two weeks the central reality of our coming together has been going together into the book of Romans, we start chapter 2 this evening.

It is wonderful to be brought back to the Word of God. Praise the Lord for the life, the light, the life supply contained in the Bible. 

Romans: The gospel of God (1:1) to make sinners (1:18-2:20) sons of God (8:14) to constitute the Body of Christ (12:4-5) which is expressed as local churches. (16:1,4)

Paul refers to Romans as "my gospel."

Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Romans 16:20 Now to him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

An interesting point for group discussion: Why, in this lengthy presentation of the gospel of God, is there not one word about going to heaven, except to say, "don't say that"?

Romans 10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)

Eph 5:26  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27  That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

The "washing of water by the word" is where the Life of God dwelling in our hearts, under the impact of His presence, sweeps away anything and everything that does not conform to the Word of God, thereby fulfilling His redemptive purpose within us of restoring us back to His image and likeness.

Just as was His purpose for us in the beginning.

All of the creation in the earth is groaning and waiting for the manifestation of THAT reality.

 

Shalom,

JS5777

   Yes, games are not a good thing, and point to inner issues.  I was addicted to them.  They are like a drug, acting as a crutch to deal with inner fires.  They provide a time of separation from the afflicting power, but serve only To hinder, even prevent the death of them((afflicting powers)) into the Son of GOD.

   Yes, the washing of the Word in the person of the Word takes us out of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and establishes us in the tree of life.  The Word discerns between soul((our best efforts)) and spirit((Christ in us as LORD)).
