Salut Andrius and all,
The title is a question fromhttp://www.ccel.org/node/751#comment-7447
to which I answered from the title:
All verses where experience confirms theory and practice
So far, important are all verses where experience confirms theory
and practice by the Holy Spirit in my spirit and in our communion to
Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth! Ps46,10
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws in their mind
and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they
shall be My people. None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none
his brother, saying, `Know the LORD,' for all shall know Me, from
the least of them to the greatest of them. For I will be merciful to
their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will
remember no more." Heb8,10-12
Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be
strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that
Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being
rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the
saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know
the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled
with all the fullness of God. Ep 3,14-19
...meeting up with...
But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their
heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken
away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord
is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding
as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the
same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
He answered(to the devli) and said, "It is written, `Man shall not
live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth
of God.' Mt 4,4
Upon knowing God's voice, then...
...we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
But as it is written:
“ Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 1Cor2,6-10
...all combining to mean that once we settle in the maturity of the
one Faith we are given, then the whole of scripture lights up to
shine forth what we, God and God's family, are all about!
Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.
Blessing and Admonition
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. 1Thess 5,19-24
...may all blessings be with us all...
