Longevity connections are supernatural occurrences. They take root from the spirit and soul which cannot be seen with our naked eyes. Spirit and soul connections manifest physically in our daily activities. These are termed Divine Gifts of God and His Grace. The longevity connections described in this story are spiritual gifts and His Grace. Both are divine blessings like Wellness of human body, happiness, brain functions, scientific knowledge, Inspiration, Faith, Healing even our breathing. The humans have them all.
Soul – body (soul self) embodies the sum total of our conscious experiences through each life time and are carried throughout our human journey (2 Peter 2:14). The soul contains feelings, involvements like learning, love, confusion and understanding. The soul energy is both light and dark, cloudy, heavy and restless. It is complex because it is composed of so many experiences- Positive, Beautiful, Horrific, Traumatic and Painful (1 Peter 1: 22, 1 Peter 4:19) and with-out the Holy Spirit in our heart, the soul body or ego becomes clouded by our perceptions, lacking clear boundaries. They get distracted, confused by others, live sentimentally in the past and allow our ego fears to out-shine love, absorb the negativity and needs of others. We become easily depressed and angered. We feel victimized, our eyes are dull, emotions heavy, energy depleted. We become passive and overwhelmingly stressed. This is the major cause of Ageing phenomenon which has been proved scientifically. Longevity means to live longer age before death, or live younger years, or grow in spirit for eternal life in heaven.
SPIRITUAL GIFTS OF GOD
With the spiritual gifts of God, you feel energetically light, buoyant with No stress, no past story or experiences to carry. There is No darkness to illuminate, no timeline to follow, no urgency to seek, no restlessness to overcome. There is only Peace, Light and Happiness. This spirit is the God sent Being within us. It has no dark night as with the soul. There is only perfect and ceaseless illuminating light. When this spirit of God rules within us, we have clear and strong sense of Who we are. We know our boundaries and express them with respect (Respect is the first Longevity connection expressed in the Holy Bible – Exodus 20:12). We deflect negativity, stand in the waves of strong emotion without losing ourselves. We remain grounded and calm under pressure. We see humor in all things, easily laugh at ourselves and at life’s absurdities. We have bright sparkles in our eyes, easy smiles on our lips. And we have a bounce in our walk to become more lively, younger at heart and physically. They all boost Longevity and we live in the moment.
The light of the spirit negates whatever dark is in the soul. This enables the spirit and the soul to become CO-CREATIVE POWER. They give us energy, enthusiasm, confidence, love to grow, give, receive and share. All these benefits are building blocks for Longevity. The authors make bold to describe the soul-body and the Spirit of God as the sole key to human longevity. Reading through the whole story will convince you that God who gives us life can terminate it at His will. Once our breathing stops, Life and Longevity come to a Stop. We then have Nothing to talk about.
SPIRITUAL GIFTS OF GOD (1 CORINTHIANS 12: 7-9)
. THE GIFT OF BREATH –
Breath is life. Breath is a spirit. Without it there is no life. Our Creator bestowed upon us the breath of life and it flows through our being; cleansing and releasing our mind, body and nervous systems from all that had passed, leaving us free and clear to live fully life or moment. We all enjoy this precious gift of life. After normal exercises in my re-creation center, the elders are instructed to take ‘’ Long deep breath in and out to release the tension of the exercise. Deep breath also allows the Holy Spirit to flow freely through us, to enlighten and inform us of choices to guide our ways. Deep breath opens the heart and allows the gift of generosity to flow in us.
. THE GIFT OF HUMOR
Humor temporarily frees people from immersion and enslavement to soul’s struggle and ego’s drama. It elevates us back to the view-point of spirit; laughter, amusement, chuckles, smiles- that is the many faces and expression of humor. Humor restores perspective, returns sense of power, rebalances and liberates us from negative, toxic emotions, elevates us to freedom in the moment. It floods the body with healing hormones, bring relief and objectivity to the mind. We feel elevated and very young at heart. The Oxytocin in the brain is released. You feel happy, on top of the World. And you feel many years younger than you are. The gift of Humor is ushered into the hearts by the divine subtle joy that guides creative inspiration and solution in the service of God. They remind us that what we laugh at, we can overcome. The gift of Humor is obtained in humorous movies, funny books, comedies and jokes. You can find it if you look for it. They are all Longevity connections.
THE GIFT OF INSPIRATION (Ezekiel11:24, 1 CORINTHIANS 2:10)
Some people mentor others because the Holy Spirit moves through them to encourage those whom they touch. Most of them are carriers of the GOOD NEWS, Joyful announcement reminding people of the many blessings we have and share in life. They bring the warmth of divine love, light and healing of Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit.
GROWTH IN THE SPIRIT
Longevity is not limited to physical ability or age, to live up to 100 years on Earth. Spiritual growth is development of your soul, to work closer in alignment with the wishes of the Holy Spirit to earn eternal life in heaven (Hebrew 13:17, Luke 1:47, John3:5
I experienced such gift at the age of 18. This was my last year in the High School. I was baptized only by the sprinkling of water on the head when I was 8 days old. I was unconscious of anything as a baby. But at 18, when the bishop of our church laid his hand on my head to be confirmed in the name of Jesus, I felt the touch of the Holy Spirit. But unlike Jesus at his baptism, I did not see a dove. The day was the happiest day in my life. I went home rejoicing and I knelt down on my two knees to thank my parents for the opportunity to attend the ceremony. I belief the people truly BORN AGAIN have the same feeling. I feel convinced that I have grown in Spirit and become the child of God.
THE GIFT OF FAITH (ACT 6:10)
The gift of Faith makes you silence doubt and suffering of the ego. The faith in your heart draws the love and goodness that the Universe has for all. It opens your eyes to the beauty around you, in you, in others, in everything. You believe in life, belief in your spirit and the Holy Spirit to oversee all. You stop feeling the need for soul and ego to control life with faith. You let go the notion that all is not unfolding and It activates the gift of un-waving confidence in life. With this faith you nurture long life physically and spiritually.
THE GIFT OF HEALING (Jeremiah 6:16, Luke 21:19)
Healing gift helps the fragments of authentic self come home in self and others. The power of Healing can restore distorted and un-loving perceptions of self and others to their divine complete, beautiful authentic nature. You look upon the World with loving eyes and hearts. The healing power within you flows to promote beautiful environment, adventure, sight-seeing. Every-thing around you brings you joy and happiness that promote ageing gracefully and longevity. The gift of healing is freely used. In it, you possess not only the power to restore others to wholeness, but yourself also. The gift of healing activates and amplifies. Divine angels bring healers in heaven to work miracles. The healing power commands the ego, soul-self, interfering with God’s wholeness to surrender to the healing power of the Holy Spirit present in that moment. You reclaim all shattered confidence and bring forward the divine, un-limited true nature of wellness. Thus, you are able to fulfill your life purpose which is essential in successful longevity.
THE GIFT OF MUSIC SPIRIT
Most people with this gift celebrate with the angels in heaven. They give beautiful songs and sounds.
Gift of music assists in healing old wounds, erases grudges and resentments. They help to move past real doubts and fears of not being loved. It expands the heart and mind to feel the spirit more and more. The angels of music move one to dance in the flow of life. The music gives you new songs, new melodies of joy and inner peace that gives longevity. In general, all spiritual gifts promote Happiness, Peace and Longevity in all and sundry as seen in the benefits of His Grace below.
SOUL-BODY AND HIS GRACE
Growth into His Grace
This is the power of truly committed to improve the lives of others, no matter what may come. When His Grace unfurls in your life, you shake your foundations to loosen the soil, allow devastating occurrences to become wondrous opportunities. Spirituality isn’t about averting crises, it’s about making the cycle from crises to Grace a little less bumpy. By identifying the patterns in your life, you are able to figure out how to relax, find your power, learn from your difficulties and allow His Grace to enter. Your mission is to reconnect people with what makes them happy. Happy people make better choices, and better choices make better Planet. Thus, Growth in His Grace promotes Longevity in the spirit realm.
If you find yourself lost looking for your purpose, if the meaning of your life-journey is evading you, if you are searching for ways to love, then it is time to sit down and grow into His Grace. With humor, honesty and insight, you can grow into His Grace. This will empower new generations to push and be tomorrow conscious change-makers. Daily love is a transformational thing for anyone seeking a life filled with Grace.
THE CHARACTERISTICS OF HIS GRACE
Divine Grace of God gives us the power to step past our comfort-zone, to live with both feet in. It is the grace of God that helps us face fears, give up resistance, let go and enjoy life experiences fully. The divine grace escorts our defended pride away from our hearts and leads it into the light of trust. The grace of God frees us from the prison of our own making and result in mature life of longevity. His grace enables us to drop our unconscious ego – based defences, prideful posturing, limiting ideas and beliefs. And it helps us to open our hearts to receive more of love, more light, more enthusiasm and more confidence. All these make us grow longer spiritually and physically.
His Grace flows un-interrupted through words, actions, thoughts and feelings. It opens the heart of those with whom we interact. This encourages graceful ageing and longevity, and it helps to fully open to all blessings.
You confidently step into the experiences of the day. And with commitments, glorious enthusiasm and willing participation, you receive the gifts that the moments bring. You accept the power of a divine-being and a true co-creator in the Universe. You become filled with the sudden enlightenment and profound understanding of a deeper, more profound holy wisdom that lies within you as children of God. Grace takes you to a place of deeper honesty with yourself and others. It frees you from the lies your ego tells you that keeps you from living the full authentic expression of pure divine nature. Grace turns the light on, in the darkened mind and shows that there is really nothing to be afraid of after-all. It helps to step forward your heart instead of run-away from it.
Grace is a personal visitation in your life from God. It is a force that frees you from the fear, attachment, control and entitlement that possess you at any given moment. Grace breaks you out of the jail of your ego and restores you to the throne of Universal awareness. You gracefully experience life free from the attacks, lies, shame, guilt and anger – your ego casts upon your life.
I guess Theodora’s story is all about the grace of God in her life. Theodora and I went to the same Convent School. She was actually my class-mate. She wanted to be a Reverend Sister but her parents adamantly opposed the idea. She was forced to get married to one rich man in the neighborhood. Reluctantly, she agreed and was blessed with six children. Twelve years later, the husband died and Theodora gave the wedding ring out as charity. The former Principal of the Convent School was still alive.
She consoled her and admonished her to join the Convent Staff because they all loved her. Actually, her initial heart’s desire was to be a Reverend Sister. However, Theodora refused the invitation. She preferred to stay with her six children and train them herself. Lo and behold, in a dream, she found herself in a big Church with the carvings of Jesus, Angels and the saints on the glass-walls. She heard the ringing of bell during Offertory just before THE HOLY COMMUNION. She saw a HIGH Priest holding up the white piece of Bread to break and distribute to people. She had the feeling that she was in a Wedding Ceremony, and a spirit wanted to slip a wedding ring on the second finger of her left hand. Theodora said that she was married before, and then shouted the name JESUS. The environment was so sacred that Theodora could not think of anything satanic. As she shouted the feeling left her. When Theodora woke up from the dream, she laughed at herself because she refused to wear a wedding ring for thirty years, since her husband died. She remembered, however, that the Reverend Sisters living in the Convent all wore wedding rings. They believed to be married to Jesus. Theodora also assumed that her soul model Mother Teresa wore a wedding ring during her life time. This belief gladdened her heart. She believed she had been visited by the Holy Spirit. She felt relaxed because His Grace had qualified her for throne in heaven.
His Grace surrounds us all the time, and it is responsible for Longevity. Apart from longevity, His Grace abounds in other situations – Forgiveness of sins, Acceptance of life as it comes, Light to everything and everyone, Surrender to God’s wisdom over our own, Feeling His loving presence in our heart and so on. All of the above favor peace of mind, graceful ageing and longevity.
BRAIN (SOUL-BODY) and CHARACTERISTICS
The brain is built of cells called neurons and glia in hundreds of billions. Each one of these cells is as complicated as the city. Each cell sends electrical pulses to other cells up to hundreds of time per second. The cells are connected to one another in a net-work of staggering complexity. Inside the head is the three-pound marvel that beats any technology in the World today. Your brain is a soul-body. It sparkles by the flow of electrical currents and an ever-changing blend of chemicals, each with a distinct job. Its unending updates remaps itself to make things possible. Powered by one hundred billion neurons, each connected to ten thousand additional neurons, the brain is the most complex object in the Universe. It regulates fundamental body-functions: Your breath, heart-rate, and digestion. It regulates Sleep, hunger, growth and hormonal cycles. It is the foremost Longevity connection and the most important soul-body in the Universe. It processes memories, emotions, cravings and how you indulge them. It manages how you sense and navigate the World. It guides how you close your eyes and inhale slowly when you smell something delicious – savoring the aroma and the moment. The brain gives chemicals that sparkle feelings of pleasure, motivation, stress and satisfaction. The innate process makes decisions or automatic responses. The brain works non-stop to keep you safe and alive. The brain largely controls the soul while the heart controls the Holy Spirit within. It directs operations we’re not always aware of (like heart or breathing rate). The brain may weigh only three pounds, but it is truly among the most complicated objects in the World.
We can cluster brain functions into three basic categories:
. Managing our bodies – THE HIND-BRAIN
This is the lower part of the brain near the neck. It regulates appetite and sleep cycles, and guides our biological desires to eat or sleep. It coordinates digestive processes, balance, and hormone levels. These functions actually integrate across many different parts of the brain from the back of the neck to the center of the brain.
THE limbic system
This area houses memories and emotions. Feelings and memories are essential tools for navigating human life. They are so important that the brain manages them in a dedicated center. The limbic system (fist-size) nestle around the central core of the brain. Humans are social animals and have the ability to interact with others. They use the feelings to guide actions and help to survive things like Memories, Sensitivities, Responses. All other personal perspectives inform us to the World around us, even without our awareness. We may not realize it, but our memories and emotions guide the way we make sense of and take actions in moment to moment experiences.
Humans process information and thoughts in the Cortex. The Cortex processes information from emotions, the senses, prior learning and directs what to do next. The cortex is an assembly of wrinkly tissue made up of numerous domains, each with specific functions. Sensory information from the outside World, language, perception, thought and more are all processed in the Cortex, according to some theories, up to 90 percent without our awareness. The brain takes everything it mapped and calculates in an instant to react. Intentional processing takes place in the Prefrontal Cortex (PFC) Which occupies the area behind the fore-head. PFC is the home of complex cognition – Planning, critical thoughts and impulse control. Here we make conscious decisions and evaluate trade-offs, and where we find ways to resist the easy actions and choose the ones we really want. This area really makes a man who he is. Longevity links up with your Purpose in life, and the brain contributes immensely towards this achievement.
WELLNESS, HUMOR and HAPPINESS IN LONGEVITY CONNECTIONS
. DOING NOTHING – Experts said jokingly that ‘’Doing Nothing occasionally is not a waste of time’’. It lowers Stress level because it is a gateway to productivity, peace and joy, if it is channelled towards longevity. Deeply relaxing actually helps to enjoy life more and find success. The time you put into doing nothing gives deep and restful relaxation. Deep rest is vital for wellness scientifically. The restful, plentiful sleep, the lowed stress levels, the boost of energy, the creative spark are found with regular practice of doing nothing. I personally observed an irresponsible old man in a family of six. He lived longest in the family because he did nothing most times. He looked robust, fresh and happy most times. Nothing ever bordered him. His type of life was not to be desired because he had no ambition, no purpose on Earth, but a responsible, hard-working man who takes a restorative pause when necessary, not only lower his stress level for wellness but gives himself well-deserved motivation and focus to invest in other areas of longevity. Eating nourishing food, getting more movements in a day and enjoying precious sleep are other areas that benefit longevity. Restorative breaks make people more focused as employees, partners, friends, and parents. You get energy from breaks – the kind of energy you don’t get normally and at the same time achieve your life purpose.
. ADVICE ON STRESS-CONTROL
Experts say that – you get wellness, happiness and consequent longevity when –
. You find your calm
. Get your life back
. Create Real connections
. Overcome Tech Distractions
. Master new habits
. Reclaim focus
. Love and Respect
. Positive changes like Happiness, ageing gracefully and longevity are not a station we arrive at, but a manner of travelling.
Research Scientists tell us that – For longevity and good health, one must first discipline and control one’s mind. If we control our minds, we can find the way to enlighten all wisdom and virtue. This is expanding longevity. And they will naturally come to us. Money, social status, plastic surgery, beautiful houses, powerful positions may be indirectly, but certainly not directly connected with longevity. Lasting happiness comes only from God and you need to put your brain to work to reduce stresses envisaged in soul-ego, and align your-selves with God’s dictation for you. Love and respect for all also reduce stress. Scientists proved from formulas in mathematical terms, measured and quantified with precision that happiness and graceful ageing come only from Serotonin, Dopamine and Oxytocin. However, not all explanations about longevity are scientific. Not all explanations can be experimentally tested and described in a neat mathematical equation to create improved Universe in future. However, it has been proved scientifically that STRESS-REDUCTION in all ramification solved ageing problems and physically connected longevity but as divine beings, we are on a transformational journey from limited human consciousness to limitless divine spiritual consciousness. We have two distinct aspects of self – Soul and divine spirit. Our longevity has been described as a supernatural gift, for we know who we are.
LONGEVITY IN BOX
. BIBLE HISTORY (Age and Respect)
The Holy Bible is the oldest historical book in the Universe. I n it we saw the ages of some of our ancestors, and what RESPECT has to do with Longevity Exodus 20:12.
Genesis 25:7 (NIV) – Abraham lived a hundred and seventy-five years.
Genesis 35:28 (NIV) – Altogether, Methuselah lived a total of 969 years, and then he died.
Genesis 9 :29 (NIV) – So Joseph died at the age of a hundred and ten. And after they embalmed him, he was placed in a coffin in Egypt.
Most servants of God lived and died at or even above the prescribed age of 120 years as recommended by the Creator.
In the fifth commandment, God inspired Moses to write on stone what RESPECT has to do with Longevity (Exodus 20:12). This means that Longevity Connections started right in the Holy Bible.
Some experts saw an increase in life expectancy of three months for every year in 1840. The first substantial increase came from tackling infant mortality, infectious diseases such as TB, Smallpox, Diphtheria, and Typhoid. Also, tackling the diseases of old age caused sharp improvement in their life expectancy. Casual factors were at work behind the increase: Better health, better nutrition, better medical care, better education, better technology, better sanitation and better income. Most important were public health innovations like general control, drugs and immunization. Similar events happened in many countries all over the World. 100 years longevity became the expected life duration globally, barring accident. However, the Rich countries experienced it first. Longevity is good, if life itself is good. Disaster, sin, and unhappiness can cause short life. But if you walk with God, your expectation will not be cut short.
INTERVIEW WITH A JAPANESE WOMAN
A research-team interviewed a 110 year- Japanese woman. They saw her pulling her grocery truck along the road. She acknowledged not to have any disability. She was strong, with two sharp eyes, eloquent in speech. Though bent slightly in stature, she walked her way without any help. Today, Japan has the highest number of old people who lived up to 100 years. The interviewed woman told us the secrets:
. They acquired the knowledge early in life to be independent.
. They controlled their diet. They ate foods without Sugar, Tofu, soya-bean-products, lots of fish, vegetables, greens and they drink water and green tea.
. They were made to work hard right from child-hood. They did a lot of body-building exercises – walking on foot most times. They didn’t indulge in pleasure transportation, like using motor-cars. The strength built-up early in life kept them fit for life. Most of their Centenarians still worked in the farms, and pushed their carriers
SCIENCE AS A SOUL-BODY
In science, mortality refers to life expectancy and the time of death.
Morbidity refers to the health – related quality of life before death.
Compression of morbidity is the term used when people typically experience first coronaries; but this has increased in many Countries, because mobility among the older population has improved. Today scientific research noted that both mortality and morbidity could be due to cell-ageing. And it is important to consider individual human cell before the causative disease. The experience I had with an eye-specialist confirmed this idea.
I gained this experience when I accompanied Susan to the eye-clinic. Susan was a prolific story-writer. She did a lot of reading and writing. She wrote the draft of a Story on the26th September 2019. The following day, she hoped to develop her draft. Unfortunately, she found herself blind. She could not read a single alphabet of the intended story, that she wrote herself a day before. She could not even read the TV screen. She needed help. So, I followed her to see the eye-specialist who wanted to know when her sight packed-up. I was baffled at the question. ‘’How can the sight pack-up within a day?” I concluded within myself that cell ageing is probably due to long reading involvement. Thank God, with merely an injection inside the eye-ball, Susan’s sight was restored within a month. Divine angels brought healers from heaven to work miracles.
It makes sense that if human sight can pack-up within a day all the cells that form various organs in the body can do similar thing. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to take care of individual cells in the body by taking body-tonics or food supplements. This encourage the cells to live longer and repair themselves. This is the first step for longevity. Thus, knowledge and science showed us that, much can be done for longevity.
God is the first and THE BEST SCIENTIST. As His image he gave people the Scientific knowledge as soul-bodies. Longevity Connections originated from the spirit and soul realms. The real operations, even the funding are just physical issues to please our ego. The fifth commandment written on stone by Moses was an inspiration by God. This commandment connected longevity with RESPECT for parents. Historically, therefore, longevity connection started in the HOLY BIBLE.
The gift of long life conventionally is seen as living older with longer years before death. It is also, living younger for longer years. Living long without happiness, wellness, peace, satisfaction negate the purpose of life. God created us to grow, multiply and enjoy life fully for as long as possible. The gifts of the spirit supervise and control the benefits to live the real life expected of our souls. God desired the best for His children: Longevity, happiness, wellness in all areas of life and spiritual growth to merit the kingdom of heaven. Scientists cannot do anything without the prompting of the HOLY SPIRIT through inspiration. What the HOLY SPIRIT needs of us are – Truth, sensitivity, dependence and obedience because we owe God our lives. His love for us is limitless. Where science ends the LORD begins.
The longevity connections reviewed in this story are the merits of the soul body and His divine spirit in us. Also, the soul and spirit are co-creative powers. The spirit gifts considered are –
The gift of breathing which is life itself
. The gift of humor – to give laughter and Respect to others
. The gift of inspiration – to educate us
. The gift of generosity – for kindness, love and compassion
. The gift of faith – for absolute trust in our Maker
. The gift of Music – to praise God like the angels
. The gift of healing – to know God as the Healer
. Spiritual Growth – to finally merit heaven.
All these spiritual gifts are manifested in our soul bodies and ego, one time or the other in our lives.
The authors reviewed the characteristics and the benefits of soul bodies, referring to the Brain, Happiness and Wellness. Longevity in box referred to the history in the HOLY BIBLE, recent observations, an interview with a Japanese woman and scientific claims of cell ageing. In conclusion, longevity connections are divine gifts of God – Our breath, His Grace, mercy, love, wellness, happiness, brain functions, knowledge, scientific inspirations even good foods to nourish our physical bodies. All of these and much more are soul issues. They manifest physically in our human ego. Soul and spirit connections are non-physical and in-separable. They are supernatural and both contribute to longevity which is absolutely a gift from the Creator. Breath is life. Once it packs up like one’s sight, that is the end of longevity. Only the Creator can revive it. The controller of life owns longevity. Without doubt, spiritual gifts, soul bodies and His Grace and Respect for others contribute immensely to longevity. That God inspired Moses to write it as one of the 10 commandments showed that the Creator Himself recognized the connection between longevity and parents, and other people related to you. What the whole story reminded me is the Second Coming of Our LORD, JESUS CHRIST When longevity and all connections will come to a permanent STOP. Are we all ready for the beautiful day?
1 CORINTHIANS 12: 7-9
7 But the manifestation of the spirit is given in every man to profit withal
8 For to one is given by the spirit the word of wisdom; the another the word of knowledge by the same spirit
9 To another Faith by the same spirit, To another the gift of Healing for your souls. But they said, we will not walk therein.
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up-straightway out of the water: and lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him
17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, this is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased.
- JOHN 3:5
5 Jesus answered, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the spirit., he cannot enter into the kingdom of God
1 CORINTHIANS 2:10
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his spirit: for the spirit search all things, yea, the deep things of God
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither the images neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands, and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years
24 Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity, So the vision that I had seen went up
1 PETER 1 :22-23
22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently
23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which live and abide for ever
1 PETER 4:19
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
6 Then he answered and spook unto them, saying, ‘’This is the word of the LORD unto Ze-rub ba-bel, saying, not by might, not by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
7 ‘’who art thou, o great mountain? Before Ze-rub b-a-bel thou shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shouting crying, Grace, grace unto it.
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
Power promised with the Holy Spirit baptism
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
16 This I say then, walk in the spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh: but they that are after the spirit the things of the spirit
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
12 ‘’Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
