Seeing and Embracing! August 22 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My most wonderful child, who I am always so very, very proud of,
You are now seeing and embracing what I have been revealing to you about the early church and what it means to be an original evangelical who proclaims our Good News of full and complete Christianity!
You know, experience and enjoy Our objective truth that We love you and everyone unconditionally; by Our grace as demonstrated in Our finished work at the cross, We have done everything for everyone to be one and right with Us forever; by Our reconciliation of everyone, all are accepted and included!
That’s what the early church was so excited about and that’s what drew people from all walks of life, all religions, all backgrounds together in Christ. They knew there was no longer Jew, Gentile, male, female, Barbarian or Sythian, in or out… but all are one in Christ!
You have turned the corner of love and now you eagerly search the Scripture for passages that confirm, affirm and show that We love everyone unconditionally; Our grace has done everything for everyone, and all are in and are with Us!
You no longer have the mindset of “yes, but…” where you used to look for passages of Scripture that other people told you meant that Our love, acceptance and grace had conditions and was limited for only those in their small group. You no longer look to exclude… rather, now, you look to include as We do! You no longer judge and condemn, rather you love, accept and affirm as We do.
You no longer see and label people according to the flesh… by their behavior and actions, rather… you see all people as We do: as having been crucified with Christ, died with Christ, raised with Christ, having new life in Christ, being one with Us, being in Us, being in Our family, being Our children!
Now you are seeing all others through Our eyes and hearing through Our ears. Now you have love, compassion and empathy for others… even those who are different than you, who act and believe differently than you, who look and have different customs than you. Now you have Our eyes and ears, and you know Our love and know that We are So for you all…everyone!
