Every Word Out of The Mouth of God

Hi M____,
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You are exactly right. It is very hard to relay to most, but when we say that Christ is, was, and will be, what we are saying is that the ‘is’ is, was and will be, the ‘was’ is, was and will be, and the ‘will be’ is, was and will be.
Yes, every step in the progression to salvation is taken over and over. That is why it is called “the doctrine of baptism s. As we decrease, He increases. But the “dying daily” is something that must continue till there are no more days in which to die.
As we mature in Christ we see that we are both the prodigal and the elder son, both the 99 and the one lost sheep, both the publican and the Pharisee, the woman caught in adultery and the self- righteous men who drag her before Christ. We come to see that we must live by every word which proceeds out of the mouth of God. We come to see that “all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” are all in us all. We finally see that all that Adam is, is within us all.
I am greatly encouraged to see your growth in the things of the spirit. I pray that God will grant that you will just remain faithful through the tribulations that lie ahead.
I have every confidence that He who has begun a good work in you will finish it.
