My goodness... Paul backed up by Pseudo-Paul.... and not a word from the gospels
How does Faith make you perfect?
Better yet how does Faith "save" you from anything?
If you get nothing else from what I have said, look at it this way. How many disciples of Christ were resurrected into new bodies and appeared to
anyone after death? None. They all died. Why? Only one savior made it to the end, which is the point entirely. Every disciple fell away, which is
the point of having only one savior that, in the end, stands alone before God. Christ is the one that accomplished the goal of the 12 that followed
him. None of them were resurrected with him.
Christ alone was at the right hand of God, not the 12 (mirrors of the 12 tribes). Faith is the key to this. God prepares the Son. When we become
part of that work below, we follow by faith. Justification comes from faith. Abraham was asked to give up the Son to the sword and fire. The body
lived. This is the point. There was a scapegoat. The only one that had to pay was the one that can offer forgiveness in the end. He was required
to do this. Why?
25 I know that my redeemer[c] lives,
and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[d]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet[e] in[f] my flesh I will see God;
27 I myself will see him
with my own eyes—I, and not another.
How my heart yearns within me!
28 “If you say, ‘How we will hound him,
since the root of the trouble lies in him,[g]’
29 you should fear the sword yourselves;
for wrath will bring punishment by the sword,
and then you will know that there is judgment.[h]”
The error was in him first. The trouble lies in Him.
He is the original guardian Cherub of Ezekiel 28. His task failed due to his proclamation to be the only God. His image was then produced in us
below in error. Only when he acknowledge the father in faith was he saved. We follow once we recognize the same Father and not the image of the Lord
in the OT. We are made in the same image of error. Once we reach out for the true God of love, just as Jesus did, we will not be remade into that
old image of sin again.
We follow the head. The body of Jesus was crushed in the first century as a foreshadowing of what happens to this entire world in the end. We will
be remade. All of us. What is the difference. SALVATION.
The scapegoat already paid. He is the LORD of the OT. The one in error. The son will be rescued from the sword and fire at the last minute when God
says WAIT! Abraham (father of the nation)! Don't kill Issac.
Genesis 22 (22 for a reason)
“The fire and wood are here,” Isaac said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”
8 Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together.
9 When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on
the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. 11 But the angel of the Lord called out to him from
heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!”
“Here I am,” he replied.
12 “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your
son, your only son.”
Do you have faith in the Father or the Lord? Remember, you are the Son. Remember who you are and you will know what Jesus may not have known while
