No Partiality

earth heaven hope Hope Joan Winifred

There are various scriptures highlighting Hope & God’s impartiality. Reading(s) excerpted (my highlights)…

 For those called by God to the heavenly calling (Heb 3:1) to be joint heirs with Jesus Christ, there is no distinction between men and women in a spiritual sense. The apostle writes: “You are all, in fact, sons of God through your faith in Christ . . . there is neither male nor female; for you are all one person in union with Christ Jesus.” (Ga 3:26-28) These all must receive a change of nature at their resurrection, being made partakers together of “divine nature,” in which state none will be women, for there is no female sex among spirit creatures, sex being God’s means for reproduction of earthly creatures.​—2Pe 1:4. [Woman- Insight on Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 1196]

The Bible holds out 2 Happy Futures…an Earthly Paradise…and a Heavenly Hope.  Those with a Heavenly Invitation who remain faithful will receive immortality. Those with an Earthly Invitation who remain faithful will receive everlasting life in perfection.

p.s. woman as complement/helper to man: her Earthly Dignified Role…further readings:

Before the man Adam ever asked for a human companion, God his Creator made provision. After placing Adam in the garden of Eden and giving him the law respecting the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, Jehovah said: “It is not good for the man to continue by himself. I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him.” (Ge 2:18) He did not oblige the man to go seeking a companion among the animals, but he brought the animals to Adam for naming. Adam was not inclined toward bestiality and was able to determine that there was no suitable companion for him among these. (Ge 2:19, 20) “Hence Jehovah God had a deep sleep fall upon the man and, while he was sleeping, he took one of his ribs and then closed up the flesh over its place. And Jehovah God proceeded to build the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman and to bring her to the man. Then the man said: ‘This is at last bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This one will be called Woman, because from man this one was taken.’”​—Ge 2:21-23.

Position and Responsibilities. The woman, being created out of the man, was dependent upon the man for being brought into existence. Being part of the man, “one flesh” with him, and a complement and helper to him, she was subject to him as her head. She was also under the law that God had given Adam about the tree of the knowledge of good and bad. She was responsible to work for the good of the man. Together they were to have children and to exercise dominion over the animals.​—Ge 1:28; 2:24.

Studying Specs

appreciation attitude change choice conscientious-ness healing Hope humility insights Joan Winifred knowledge logic never giving up! wisdom

Many cling to generalizations. When it comes to important topics, topics impacting daily decisions…we need specifics and specifications.

For example say i am sick. i need medicine. Okay, sick with what?? Just finding an accurate diagnosis takes time/investigation/priority. What type of medication? Precise instructions of timed dosage required, huh?…to get well!?

What about multiple health issues?

The human family is terribly sick: mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

What truly takes us to wellness??

No specs…dangerously/SICK/LIFE-THREATENING territory!

We need precision…we need a decisive, sharp scalpel to slice and dice through…to edit…to get to the bone marrow of a matter!

Another example…”money” what currency? counterfeit? or the real thing? Tellers study the real thing not counterfeits! Inflation/deflation monetary/(and other) values fluctuate continuously…we need a steady life/moral “value” system. That rolls with the ups and downs and protects from popular trends/fads…and we make it through, okay, unscathed and ALIVE…when the flavor of the day preference by society/world is tossed out…(and/or killed off).

political neutrality is the wisest course…keeps my mind/my hands clean and out of dangerous controversy…or worse.  And will keep me on the best side of history. 🙂

General terms need clarifying…specs…or glasses to see accurately:

religion? what is religion? True Religion Vs. False Religion? etc.

God? What God? False God? True God? Almighty God? Creator?

Authority? What Authority? Highest Authority? Supreme Universal Sovereign?

Specific details needed!…for accurately informed (wellness) choices: Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Physical health at stake!

Short, medium, and long-term…

You cannot chose without consequence!

 

{p.s. yeah, i know, the “silly” irony of a post emphasizing need for details written in general terms;)…in a time crunch…”hopefully” will follow-up with another post.}
