Part 2 Spiritual Correction
As He spoke to me telepathically, in an instant, I understood, and embodied all He proceeded to reveal. He explained that the meaning of life was this overwhelming love I was experiencing, and that we should dedicate our lives to manifesting this love toward God, others and ourselves here on earth, and tell people about the hope of the coming Kingdom. In so doing, we will actually help bring about the this Kingdom of love. I then realized whatever I thought or wondered, the answer was instantly downloaded into my understanding. "This is incredible" , I thought, and then I realized I was no longer afraid to die. Wouldn't you know it, the next thought I had was "I must be really special because of what is happening to me" and in that very instant I was reproved with a spiritual shock of correction, so powerful it shook me to my core, and increased In power until I was literally driven to repentance. ( I learned quickly to be careful what I think ) I then was filled with the love of heaven again. He let me know that when the fullness of the Kingdom of God is manifest, this kind of immediate spiritual reproof will be experienced by all; that this is the meaning of the verse" He will rule by a rod of iron." I then understood that those who did not know how to enter into love because they had lived only for their own selfish interest, would try to hide from the presence of God's all encompassing Spirit.

Part 3 The Sacrifice
From understanding the importance of love, and seeking it with my whole heart: I asked a question I had personally wrestled with, from the first day became a believer :"How was my sin forgiven 2000 years ago?" How did Y'shua's act forgive me in today's time; I wanted to know the why, and how it works. I believed my sin had been forgiven because of the Promise of Y'shua, and the filling of the Holy Spirit that had come into me that day Oct. 8 1978,(but that's another experience ). I couldn't figure out the how. I'm a Mechanical Eng. and Inventor so Ive always needed to know the, (how it works). Then it all came to me in a instant and the scriptures were revealed: Abraham's faith, to be willing, and obedient to sacrifice his son, and because he had done this he received a blessing: that in thy seed all the nations of the earth will be blessed. This is why he is the father of the faith. That in this blessing God would predestined Y'shua His only begotten Son to be given because God so loved the world. I realized that when Y'shua was in the Garden and asked if its possible let this cup pass from me: that He wanted to avoid what was coming and said nevertheless not as I will but as thou wilt. Then when He was questioned by Pilate, Y'shua answered, and said you would have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above. God had given Pilate the authority. Then I realized the greatest atrocity was Y'shua Suffering for me, when he did not deserve it, he was perfect. Then I remembered Psalm 22 when he said thou hast brought me to the dust of death. God had the power to stop the torture and crucifixion at anytime, he let his only begotten suffer unto death because he loved me. In so requiring this of his Son I realized there isn't any carnal sin I could do to top what the Father had done, and that my own sin would not separate me from the father. But what the Father did was out of love for us, and what is done out of love fulfills the law and cannot be sin. If this had not been done out of love it would have been the greatest of all sin. I was in total wonder and awe. I saw how I could not do any carnal sin that could top what the father had done, and how Y'shua had overcame all and reconciled us, there isn't anything that can separate us from the love of the Father because of Y'shua's love and obedience unto death.
