“Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of education with the greatest for the last,” Sherlock Holmes.
Time is full of educational values that suggest human survival on planet earth can not last forever. Nevertheless most ignore the obvious, and cling to chance that at death all ends. Mistake! Death is a transition from one state of existence to another.
Divine Providence provided the following for our sake. So that we mortals might know that death is the gateway to life ever lasting. Unfortunately His vehicle, the church, to help us understand the ramifications of that transition has failed humanity. Because Christendom, has religiously political sized itself into agents of nothingness. And, that is the greatest tragedy of history!
But there are exceptions, and Church for Sanctuary through its Padre is one of those exceptions. Some say that the proof is in the pudding. Meaning the reality is in the experience. So the pudding is only realized through sincerity, and not as an experimental quest.
Perhaps a little strange because we’re going to start from the end and travel to the beginning. The following is not the language devised by a mortal like me. It’s the language of Divine Providence given to the Apostle Paul to share with we mortals during the age of grace, our time in history. “If anyone is in Christ, they have become a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new!” (cp. 2 Corinthians 5:17).
The above is the aftermath of this experience. “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raise Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10). Here’s is the promise. “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame, for whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (cp. Romans 10:11;13).
Everyone’s circumstances are different. When this Padre experienced the newness of life through Christ. He was in the midst of some very unusual conditions and circumstances. With no church experience to help him to understand his Christ experience. He just knew that the next morning he was a very different person. Eventually he secured a Bible. And a Biblical search began, hoping to discover why he was so different. Finally, he came across, 2 Corinthians 5:17).
Want that experience? Follow the prompts in Romans 10:9-10. Claim the promises in Romans 10:11:13). And, 2 Corinthians 5:17, is yours!
It may, or may not, be an emotional experience. It wasn’t for this Padre. Just an awareness that a new personage had been been born.
John pretty much captured this Christ child’s experience. “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but can not tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone, who is born of the Spirit.” (cp. John 3:8).
This Padre has been within that Spirit experience for 50+ years. Truthfully, this Padre never tires of Biblical studies. Consider the following, “For by Him were all things created that are in heaven, and on the earth, visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.” (Cp. Colossians 1:16). Multiple journeys to be studied, and thus realized, making scriptural studies a profound source of understanding.
