Real-Time Living

Triune God

The Father is good and in a good mood. (James 1:17, 1 Corinthians 5:19) The Son is the absolute revelation of who the Father is to mankind. (John 14:9, Hebrews 1:2-3) The Holy Spirit is the revealer of what the Father is thinking all the time. (Corinthians 2:10-12)

Salvation

Salvation [restoration] has been purchased / established in Jesus Christ - The Blessing of David and Abraham realized upon all people through His Spirit within man's spirit.

Way to God

Mankind's Divine Identity and Origin are in the Son

Human beings conducting life as merely natural men" - are living from a limiting "core nature" that they in themselves, cannot get free from. All other associations simply mask their actual identity - and in turn, come up short in living in the fullness of the Fathers family. Because mankind has been restored - freed from this limitation, in being made righteous - they are free to take ownership of the upgrade / restoration to a new "core nature" and experience a life celebrated by their Father as He unfolds who they really are.

  • Romans 3:23-24
  • Romans 6:23

His Presence, Power, and Authority

With the restoring of His presence within man - comes the restoration of all power and authority through man. The effectiveness of the latter - is dependent on the influence of His presence within.

  • Hebrews 2:5-8
  • Matthew 28:18
  • John 15:5

Baptism

Father designed our participation with Him in water baptism to be an affirming experience. We get to acknowledge being a New Creation with the inward reality that Jesus is Lord. Father gets to look on with joy in declaring: "This is my Beloved - in whom I am well pleased. "Water baptism in itself will not change a person's "core nature" but upon declaring Jesus as Lord, He designed it to impact a person's thought life to such a degree, setting them free forever from condemnation of any past or present failure.

Confession of Sin

Father designed for man to walk together with Him and be in agreement. "Confessing sins" to God is aligning our perspective with His. Furthermore it is God's design that every man not merely be forgiven, but even further - cleansed from all unrighteousness. [Released from the baggage of a "sin conscious residue" in their thought life after the fact] - Creating an environment where His presence/power has full influence in their lives.

  • 1 John 1:9
  • John 14:30-31

Being Connected

It is the will of God that every man live fully influenced through His Holy Spirit - resulting in a normal flow of the Fathers heart/mind - revealed through our voice both in our native language, as well as the language of the spirit that is man. Human beings are a spirit; they have a mind (thought life and emotions). Just as the mind and emotions are expressed and communicated through a "native language" likewise the real you - your spirit connected and fully influenced, is not mute but also has a language in fellowship with God that is free from mental barriers. The result is establishing a higher awareness in hearing and seeing, and therefore a greater effectiveness in serving people.

The Graces of the Spirit

All of Mankind was created to live fully influenced by the fullness that is Fathers family. To live in the upgraded nature/connected, is to flow in what the Bible calls "The Gifts [graces] of The Spirit" bringing the influence of His presence into their lives and others, that produce restoration - as a natural extension of their lives.
