(AH DID YOU CATCH AN IMPORTANT TRUTH GIVEN HERE? SALVATION - BEING CALLED TO UNDERSTAND GOD AND CHRIST IS GIVEN TO A PERSON. IT IS NOT JUST A CASE OF SOMEONE SITTING DOWN AND THINKING, "I'M THINKING TODAY I WILL BECOME A CHRISTIAN." OH SOME MANY HAVE DONE THAT, BUT YOUR BIBLE TEACHES TO BE A TRUE SON OF GOD YOU HAVE TO BE CALLED OF GOD, OF CHRIST. THEY HAVE TO COME TO YOU AND BRING YOUR MIND TO SPIRITUAL TRUTH. THEY MUST TAKE AWAY YOUR SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS - SEE THE PLAIN TRUTH OF THE MATTER IN ROMANS 9 TO 11 - READ IT CAREFULLY FOR THERE ARE VERSES GIVING A KEY OF SALVATION. THEN MAKE SURE YOU STUDY MY STUDY CALLED "THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT" - Keith Hunt)

THE FATHER IS JESUS' SUPREME GOD, AND HE IS OUR SUPREME GOD ALSO. YOU SHOULD BE SEEING BY NOW THAT THE NEW TESTAMENT IS MAKING IT CLEAR THAT GOD THE FATHER IS HAVING PEOPLE LITERALLY BORN INTO HIS LEVEL OF EXISTENCE - INTO THE GODHEAD. SOME VERSES LATER WILL MAKE THAT TRUTH SO PLAIN, IF WE WILL BUT JUST BELIEVE THE PLAIN WORDS WE WILL READ - Keith Hunt)

Rom. 8:15. "For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father."
(THE WORD "ADOPTION" FROM THE GREEK SHOULD BE "SONSHIP" - WE ARE AS SOME NEW TESTAMENT VERSES SAY "BEGOTTEN" OF GOD - LITERALLY - HAVING THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS HAVING THE SEED OF GOD WITHIN US. THEN AT THE RESURRECTION [INSTANT CHANGE FROM MORTAL TO IMMORTAL FOR THOSE ALIVE IN THE FLESH - 1 COR. 15] WE SHALL BE LITERALLY BORN INTO - BORN AGAIN - BORN INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD. SEE THE STUDY ON "BORN AGAIN" ON THIS WEBSITE, TO UNDERSTAND THAT TRUTH - Keith Hunt)

(A VERSE THAT GOES WITH 1 COR.11:1-3 - GOD THE FATHER IS HEAD OF CHRIST - HE IS SUPREME IN ***AUTHORITY*** AND SO AT THE END OF THE 1,000 YEAR AGE, CHRIST TURNS THE KINGDOM OVER TO GOD THE FATHER, AS HE COMES DOWN FROM HEAVEN WITH THE HEAVENLY CITY JERUSALEM, TO THE NEW EARTH: AS WE READ IN REVELATION 21 AND 22 - Keith Hunt)
2 Cor. 6:18. "And will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."
(A VERSE GETTING PLAINER ALL THE TIME. THE FATHER IS HAVING A FAMILY - Keith Hunt)
THERE ARE A FEW VERSES WE ARE YET TO COME TO THAT WILL BLOW THE MIND, WHEN FULLY MEDITATED UPON. THEY ARE EASY TO READ, PLAIN WORDS, THAT TELL US WHAT THE FATHER WANTS US TO BECOME ONE DAY.......IT IS TRULY TRULY GLORY THAT CAN ONLY FOR NOW IN THE FLESH, BE UNDERSTOOD IN A LIMITED WAY, AS LIKE PAUL ONCE SAID, LOOKING THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY, BUT ONE DAY WE SHALL KNOW EVEN AS WE ARE KNOWN.
THOSE GLORIOUS VERSES WE SHALL SEE NEXT TIME.
