GOD'S FAVOR IS REUNITING "YOU" INTO THE COVENANT RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM!



GOD’S FAVOR IS REUNITING INTO THE COVENANT RELATIONSHIP: WHERE “EVERY” NEED IS MET

“… AS MANY as received him, to them GAVE HE POWER (indwelling POWER) TO BECOME THE “SONS” OF GOD (children of God)…” (John 1:12 KJV). “…God [sends]... forth the Spirit of His Son “INTO” OUR HEARTS…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB). …He (she) that is joined (reunited) unto the LORD is ONE SPIRIT [with God again]…” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV). I will supply all your NEED” (John 12:32 KJV).

*

“…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV). “… AS MANY as received him, to them GAVE HE POWER (indwelling POWER) TO BECOME THE “SONS” OF GOD (children of God)…” (John 1:12 KJV). “…God [sends]... forth the Spirit of His Son “INTO” OUR HEARTS…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB). …He (she) that is joined (reunited) unto the LORD is ONE SPIRIT [with God again]…” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV). “…The Holy Spirit gives birth to SPIRITUAL LIFE ” (John 3:6 NLT).

HOW? …Your body [becomes]... the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you” (1 Corinthians 6:19 KJV). “The Spirit of God dwelleth in you” (1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV). “…God hath said, I will dwell in them” (2 Corinthians 6:16 KJV). “…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV).

Jesus had another name.… His name is called The Word of God…” (Revelation 19:12-13 NASB). “…THE WORDS  ... they ARE SPIRIT…” (John 6:63 KJV). “…the Word [is]... God … (John 1:1-4 NASB).

“…God [sends]... forth the Spirit of His Son “INTO” OUR HEARTS…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB). “…The Lord (Jesus Christ, the Word) is … Spirit…” (2 Corinthians 3:17 KJV).

“…Jesus Christ is in you” (2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV). “…He (she) that is JOINED unto the Lord (Jesus, the Word, the Spirit) is [also]...ONE Spirit [with God again]” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV).

 “…Jesus Christ maketh thee whole [reunited with god, the holy spirit, again]…” (Acts 9:34 KJV).

“…If any man (woman) be in Christ, he (she) is a NEW creature ” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). “… [because] … all things are … [MADE] … NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). “…I will put a new spirit in you. …” (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT).

“…The [son]... is that Spirit…” (2 Corinthians 3:17 KJV). “…God [sends]... forth the Spirit of His Son “INTO” OUR HEARTS…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB). “…God has given [you] HIS [holy] Spirit as PROOF that … he [dwells]…in [you]. (1 John 4:13 NLT). “…Jesus Christ is in you” (2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV).

REUNITING with God, the Holy Spirit, puts, the believer, into an intimate covenant relationship with HIM through Jesus. “…There ... [is] … …one … who can [reunite]... God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus…” (1 Timothy 2:5 NLT). “… God ..[through Christ]...  put you together [again with his HOLY]...spirit, [your] ...soul, and body” (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 MSG). “…He(she) that is joined (UNITED together) unto the Lord (Jesus) is ONE spirit… [with God again]” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV).

The UNIQUE covenant relationship is a type of marriage where, God, the Holy Spirit , which is non-physical and man’s SOUL, which is also non-physical become ONE.“…He(she) that is joined (UNITED together) unto the Lord (Jesus) is ONE spirit… [with God again]” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV).

In the beginning, God said: “….LET US MAKE man … after our likeness (non-physical)…” (Genesis 1:26 KJV). “…in his OWN image (SPIRIT)…..male and female created he them…” (Genesis 1:27 KJV). “…And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground (body), and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life (Holy Spirit); and man became a living soul (soul)…” (GENESIS 2:7 KJV). “….God saw every thing he had made……and, behold, it was very good…” (Genesis 1:31 KJV).

However, God became SEPARATED from mankind by SIN. “…It’s YOUR SINS that have cut you off from God (who is HOLY)…” (Isaiah 59:2 NLT).

God, the HOLY SPIRIT desired to share this unique “oneness” with “HIS” people AGAIN. He made a WAY (salvation) through faith in or dependency upon Jesus Christ, the WORD of God. “…  [THE WORD]… It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes (WHO DEPENDS UPON JESUS CHRIST, HIS WORD)” (Romans 1:16 NLT). “…The Father (God, the Holy Spirit) he doeth the works…” (John 14:10 KJV).

Jesus, the WORD, which is also SPIRIT, has the POWER to BOND and REUNITE the Holy Spirit and man’s SOUL together again like God FIRST created them. “… [He sent the ] …one … who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus…” (1 Timothy 2:5 NLT). “…Jesus Christ maketh thee whole (SAVES, REUNITES, etc.)…” (Acts 9:34 KJV). “… His name (Jesus) is called The Word of God…” (Revelation 19:12-13 NASB).  “…  [THE WORD]… It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16 NLT). “…THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK unto you, they ARE SPIRIT…” (John 6:63 KJV). “…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV).

 “…And I, if I (Jesus, the Word) be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me….” (John 12:32 KJV).  “…This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him (depend upon HIM)...” (John 6:28-29 KJV). “…BY GRACE have ye been SAVED THROUGH FAITH…” (Ephesians 2:8-9 ASV). .“…Faith cometh by hearing … THE WORD of God...” (Roman 10:17 KJV). “…The grace of our Lord was poured out on me (or transferred to me) abundantly, ALONG WITH FAITH (the power to depend upon God)that are “IN” (OR COMES WITH UNITINg with) Christ Jesus ” (1 Timothy 1:13-14 NIV).

“…He(she) that is joined (UNITED together) unto the Lord (Jesus) is ONE spirit… [with God again]” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV).

 “… God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son (the WORD) into [your]… hearts (part of the SOUL (non-physical)...” (Galatians 4:6 NASB).

When you are UNITED, again, with God through his INDWELLING HOLY SPIRIT “YOU”… “…[BECOME] … ONE; even as ..[the] Father… [is] in [Jesus] (the WORD, which is SPIRIT) and [Jesus, the Word is] in [Him] (God, the Holy Spirit), that [YOU] also may be in [ONE OR UNITED AGAIN THROUGH the SPIRIT], so that the world may believe that [God] sent…[HIS WORD[…” (John 17:21-23 NASB). “…man (woman) became a living soul (soul)…” (GENESIS 2:7 KJV).

This Holy “ONENESS” is the reuniting of man’s soul and God’s Holy Spirit through Jesus, the WORD.

GOD RESTORES MANKIND “BACK” TO THE ORIGINAL CREATED “IMAGE.”  “…man (woman) became a living soul (soul)…” (GENESIS 2:7 KJV).

“….LET US MAKE man … after our likeness (non-physical)…” (Genesis 1:26 KJV). “…in his OWN image (Spirit)…..male and female created he them…” (Genesis 1:27 KJV). “…And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground (body), and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life (Holy Spirit); and man became a living soul (soul)…” (GENESIS 2:7 KJV). “….God saw every thing he had made……and, behold, it was very good…” (Genesis 1:31 KJV).

What can MAKE mankind spiritually WHOLE again, spiritually ALIVE, and RESTORE them BACK to God’s original image? The answer: the Holy Spirit; the indwelling HOLY SPIRIT? “…God is Spirit …” (John 4:24 KJV). “…The Holy Spirit gives birth to SPIRITUAL LIFE ” (John 3:6 NLT). “….Apart from [the HOLY SPIRIT], you can do nothing…” (John 15:5 NIV).

Only the “breath of life” or “the HOLY SPIRIT” can return mankind BACK to God’s original, created “image” that was ONCE so VERY good? “…Jesus Christ maketh thee whole [again]…” (Acts 9:34 KJV). “…If any man be in Christ, he (she) is a NEW creature ” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). “… [because] … all things are … [MADE] … NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).

“…I will put a new spirit in you. …” (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT). “…God has given [you] HIS [holy] Spirit as PROOF that … he [dwells]…in [you].” (1 John 4:13 NLT). “… I AM HOLY…” (1 Peter 1:14-16 KJV). “…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV).

God’s gracious and merciful FAVOR of the restored covenant relationship is PRAISEWORTHY, FOREVER.  THE SOUL is the REAL YOU. The soul is the authentic, non-physical, self. The authentic self includes the emotions, affections, appetites, conscience, personality, and HEART/THOUGHTS (command center of the SOUL).

The heart/thoughts are the command center of the SOUL. The soul’s HEART actually houses the THOUGHTS, which listens to, or teams up with, or agrees with, or is influenced by either the indwelling Holy Spirit or the outward sinful nature to motivate. “…If two … shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven…” (Matthew 18:19 KJV). “....Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3 KJV).

The soul is in agreement with either the SPIRIT or the sinful behavior.“…The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the [Holy] Spirit wants. And the [Holy] Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature (body) desires. These TWO FORCES are constantly fighting each other, so you are not FREE to carry out your good intentions. …” (Galatians 5 NLT).

 “…The sinful nature is always hostile to God (therefore, the old mindset, affected by the sinful nature, is also hostile to God). It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. …” (Romans 8:1-14 NLT).

The HEART/THOUGHTS are initially influenced completely by the sinful nature and require TRANSFORMATION. “…those who are still under the control of their sinful nature (through the old mindset (thoughts)) can never please God. …” (Romans 8:1-14 NLT). “…Be transformed by the renewing of your mind [The command center of YOUR SOUL)….” (Romans 12:2 KJV).  

The body, soul, and God’s Holy Spirit were once ONE UNIT or in a covenant relationship TOGETHER.

In the beginning man’s heart/thoughts were TOTALLY influenced by God’s Holy Spirit.

Man’s heart/thoughts were HOLY (set apart and totally FREED from sin).

Before SIN entered into the world, mankind ONCE had the FREEDOM to choose to follow God’s “one” HOLY instructions and only had ONE choice to make: to obey.

But after FREELY choosing to be led away from God, the Holy Spirit’s commandment they became separate from him by following after the enticements of the BODY/FLESH. “…It’s YOUR SINS that have cut you off from God (who is HOLY)…” (Isaiah 59:2 NLT).

 Following after the enticements of the BODY/FLESH led them away and separated them from God, the Holy Spirit, and his image. … [their] … iniquities (sin) …separated [them]… from God… …” (Isaiah 59:2 KJV).

It is the Holy Spirit who EMPOWERS man’s SOUL to be and live FREE from SIN.

Their FREEDOM to choose to follow God’s Holy instructions was LOST to the EVIL ONE.

The EVIL ONE was now the MASTER of man’s SOUL through their OWN body/flesh. “….When you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves (to willfully follow them), you are slaves of the one you obey (follow)…” (Romans 6:16 NIV).

“…I am …. a slave to sin.. (Romans 7:14-25 NLT). They NO longer had the SPIRITUAL ABILITY TO “CHOOSE” holiness.

WHY? “…and SIN, when it is finished, BRINGETH FORTH DEATH (Spiritual death)…” (James 1:13-15 NLT).

 “…The trouble is with me, for I am all too human (now), a slave to sinI want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate. So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.  And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. I want to do what is good, but I don’t(Romans 7:14-25 NLT).

“…The sinful nature is always hostile to God . It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. …” (Romans 8:1-14 NLT).

 “…In the beginning was the Word… (John 1:1-4 NASB). “…THE WORDS … they ARE SPIRIT (God)…” (John 6:63 KJV). “…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV). “…[Adam and Eve]… heard the voice of the Lord God …” (Genesis 3:8 KJV). “…BY THE WORD of the Lord the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host…” (Psalms 33:6 NASB).

 God SPOKE the world into existence and he SPOKE to Adam and Eve. His VOICE was audible and it sounded as if he was WALKING in the garden. “… [Adam and Eve]… heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day …” (Genesis 3:8 KJV).

However, and in addition to HEARING his VOICE “walking” “IN” the garden, they HID themselves from his PRESENCE. “… [Adam and Eve]… heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day …and hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst trees of the garden…” (Genesis 3:8 KJV).

“…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV). When God STARTED creating the world his SPIRIT “…moved upon the face of the waters…and [then] God SAID….” (Genesis 1:2-3 KJV). “…The invisible [Spirit]…from the creation of the world …[was] ...clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made…” (Romans 1:20 KJV).

God’s SPIRIT is “clearly SEEN” by the things MADE which means the VOICE of the SPIRIT moved through the GARDEN and MADE a walking SOUND. “… [Adam and Eve]… heard the voice of the Lord God walking …” (Genesis 3:8 KJV).

Regardless of HOW the voice of the LORD, God was heard WALKING or MOVING through the garden; God’s -who is SPIRIT - VOICE was HEARD. “… [Adam and Eve]… heard the voice …” (Genesis 3:8 KJV).

God SPEAKS to his people through Jesus, HIS WORD, which is SPIRIT. “…THE WORDS THAT I (Jesus, the WORD) SPEAK unto you, they ARE SPIRIT…” (John 6:63 KJV).

WHY ARE GOD’S WORDS SPIRIT? “…God is Spirit…” (John 4:24 KJV). “… I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14-15 NASB).

AND God also confirms HIS WORD through signs, wonders, and miracles, such as SALVATION, TRANSFORMATION, and CONFIRMATION. “…[GOD]… moved upon the face of the waters…and [then] God SAID…” (Genesis 1:2-3 KJV).

God MOVES today, which is CLEAR by the things MADE. “…If any man be in (reunited to) Christ, he is a [MADE into a] NEW creature: old things are passed away; behold, ALL THINGS are become NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).  

The indwelling HOLY SPIRIT is God’s WAY of bonding and connecting to his people once they are SAVED by the POWER of his WORD. “… [The WORD of GOD]... is the power of God at work (through the CONFIRMING work of the HOLY SPIRIT), saving everyone who believes (depends upon the word)” (Romans 1:16 NLT).

 “…God has given [you] HIS [Holy] Spirit as PROOF that … he [dwells]…in [you]…” (1 John 4:13 NLT “…God … SENT forth the [Holy] Spirit of His Son “INTO” [Y]OUR… HEARTS (SOULS)…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB).

God’s indwelling Holy Spirit RETURNS to REUNITE mankind’s SOUL to “HIS” HOLY SPIRIT again. God “….made [your (soul)]ALIVE with Christ (the WORD) …” (Ephesians 2:5 NIV).

“…May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you (your soul) holy and whole [BY PUTTING] you together [again]—[with HIS HOLY] spirit, [ and your] soul, and body” (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 MSG).

God, the HOLY SPIRIT comes to dwell in YOU by REUNITING with your SOUL in a covenant relationship. “…The [Holy] Spirit of God dwell in you (dwelled within you)…” (Romans 8:9 KJV).

“…Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you (joined to you)?” (1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV). “…God hath said, I will dwell in them (dwell within them), and walk in them (display himself “in” and “through” them); and I will be their God, and they shall be my people…” (2 Corinthians 6:16 KJV).

“…God is not human …” (Numbers 23:19 NIV). “…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV). “…God ... makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole  [and] put you together [AGAIN]—with [God’s HOLY] spirit, [your] soul, and body” (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 MSG).

 “…Jesus Christ is in you (united to your SOUL)” (2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV). “…Jesus Christ maketh thee whole (HOLY)…” (Acts 9:34 NLT).

“…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV).  “…[Now]...ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy…” (Leviticus 20:26 KJV). “…Jesus Christ (the WORD, which is SPIRIT) is in you (united to you)” (2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV).

“…That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God. But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.)….” (Romans 8:8-11 NLT).

 If the Son therefore shall make you free, you SHALL be free indeed…” (John 8:36 KJV). “…GOD IS SPIRIT…” (John 4:24 KJV). “… I AM HOLY…” (1 Peter 1:14-16 KJV). “…be holy, because I am holy…” (1 Peter 1:16 KJV).  

“…you areA HOLY NATION…” (1 Peter 2:9 NASB). “by the Grace of God … [you are what you are (holy)] ” (1 Corinthians 15:10 NIV). 

In addition, God, the Holy Spirit, being the HUSBANDMAN or CAREGIVER of the covenant relationship takes FULL responsibility for supplying ALL the NEEDS of the believer. “…My God will supply all your [need]… according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19 NASB).  “…Your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things…” (Matthew 6 KJV).

God is your provider! Jehovah Jireh is your provider!! Therefore, you are assured, “…God will generously provide all [I]… need… [too]. [Therefore, I] … will always have everything [I]… need and plenty left over to share with others” (2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT).

Jesus told his disciples, regarding provisional need, “..take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on…” Also, “…the fowls of the air….sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them…”  Therefore, “…if God so clothed the grass of the field, which today is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?” AGAIN “Take no thought, saying What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Where withal shall we be clothed?” “…your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things…” “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; all these things shall be added unto you.” “…therefore [take] no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for itself, Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” (Matthew 6:25-34 NIV).

Paul said, “…My God will supply all your [need]…” (Philippians 4:19 NASB). “Need,” in this scripture, is something deemed essential from God’s perspective; therefore, anything else (desire, want, greediness, self-indulgence, etc,) IS NOT.

If you are a parent or have been a parent, you supplied the needs of your children based on what you thought was best for them.

Even if the children complain or whine for something they “feel” they need, parents ultimately decide what’s best. Since we respected our earthly fathers who disciplined us, shouldn't we submit even more to the discipline of the Father of our spirits, and live forever?” (Hebrews 12:9 NLT).

God does the same thing when it comes to “.., “…[supplying] all your [need]…” (Philippians 4:19 NASB).

He knows you so well and knows exactly what you need at all times, better than you do. “..You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways…” (Psalm 139:1-3 KJV).

Remember when God speaks to you he is coming from a holy perspective, not a worldly one. “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life…” (John 6:63 KJV).

There are financial, social, and physical needs which are important to each of us, but they may be deemed temporary or provisional to God. 

But spiritual needs, which are perpetual need (grace, mercy, forgiveness, etc.) may be deemed essential to God as well as eternal.

God is Spirit and thus eternal needs may often take priority over other needs in many situations and circumstances of your life.

When God talks about supplying your need, He is talking about both the ongoing, daily perpetual (eternal) needs and the provisional (temporary) needs.

The bottom line is that God promises, through Paul, that “…[He] will supply all your [need]… according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19 NASB).

You have NEEDS and “…your heavenly Father already knows ALL your needs…” (Matthew 6:32 NLT). “…And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others…” (2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT).

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever” (Psalms 23 KJV).

However, you willfully choose to ABIDE in HIM through the covenant relationship. “… [He sent the ] …one … who can {reunite the covenant relationship between) God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus…” (1 Timothy 2:5 NLT). “…He(she) that is joined (UNITED together, in a covenant relationship) unto the Lord (Jesus) is ONE spirit… [with God again]” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV).

 Thus, “…[choose to] ...abide in me, and I in you. (John 15:4 KJV). “…Apart from Me (apart from the covenant relationship with the Holy Spirit), you can do nothing…” (John 15:5 NIV). “…[Abide with HIM and he] WILL supply all [your need]… according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19 NASB).

THE PROCESS OF GOD’S FAVOR TO YOU!!! It begins with the shed blood of Jesus, given in exchange for HIS life (death upon the cross), that restores GOD’S FAVOR to YOU.

“... It is the blood, given in exchange for [Jesus’ precious LIFE], that makes purification possible...” (Leviticus 17:11 KJV).  

“... One of the soldiers ... pierced his (Jesus’) side with a spear, and immediately blood (LIFE) and water (HEALING, CLEANSING SPIRIT) flowed out...” (John 19:34 NLT).

“.... It is the blood ... that makes purification possible...” (Leviticus 17:11 NLT).

The BLOOD is the ATONEMENT.

“…God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son (LIFE, spiritual life)  (and that Spirit “FLOWS OUT” ] “INTO” [YOUR HEART]…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB). “…The Holy Spirit gives birth to SPIRITUAL LIFE…” (John 3:6 NLT).“…I  will put a new spirit  (NEW SPIRITUAL LIFE) in you…” (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT).

“…The Lord (JESUS) is that Spirit[UAL LIFE]…” (2 Corinthians 3:17 KJV). “…Jesus saith…I am …THE LIFE…” (John 14:6 KJV). “…Jesus Christ is IN YOU” (2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV).

“…If any man (woman) be in Christ, he(she) is a NEW creature ” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).  “... The old life is gone...” (2 Corinthians 5:14-18 NLT). “… [because] … all things are … [MADE] … NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).

…[YOU ARE] ...ACCEPTED in the beloved (Jesus Christ)” (Ephesians 1:6 KJV). “…Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable GIFT (jesus)…”  (2 Corinthians  9:15 KJV). “…Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable GIFT[s] (through jesus)…”  (2 Corinthians  9:15 KJV).

“…I can do ALL THINGS through Christ which strengtheneth me…” (Philippians 4:13 KJV). .“…it is God (the indwelling Holy Spirit) which worketh in [me]… both to will (strength) and to do (abilities)...” (Philippians 2:13 KJV). “... The Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. …” (Galatians 5 NLT).

 He (god, the holy spirit) careth for you.” (1 Peter 5:7 KJV).

“…I will save you that you may BECOME A BLESSING....” (Zechariah 8:13 KJV). “…I will bless thee …and thou shalt be a blessing (Genesis 12:2-3 KJV). “…you will be a blessing…” (Genesis 12:2 NIV).

“…I want to do what is right, but I can’t. (Romans 7:14-25 NLT). “…Who will free me from this life that is dominated by SIN (unrighteousness)  (Romans 7:14-25 NLT). “…The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord…(Romans 7:14-25 NLT). “…the GIFT of righteousness…” (Romans 5:17 KJV).

“… [He sent the ] …one … who can [reunite] ... God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus…” (1 Timothy 2:5 NLT). “…Jesus Christ maketh thee whole (HOLY) …” (Acts 9:34 KJV). “...the Son ...shall make you free...” (John 8:36 KJV). “…Jesus Christ is in you” (2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV). “….[Jesus Christ MAKES you into] ...a new creature; ... all things are become new...” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). “... [you are] ...living soul ( again, free from sin)…” (GENESIS 2:7 KJV).  by the GRACE of God I am what I am” (1 Corinthians 15:10 NIV). 

“… [He sent the ] …one … who can {reunite the covenant relationship between) God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus…” (1 Timothy 2:5 NLT). “…He(she) that is joined (UNITED together, in a covenant relationship) unto the Lord (Jesus) is ONE spirit… [with God again]” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV).

 Thus, “…[choose to] ...abide in me, and I in you. (John 15:4 KJV). “…Apart from Me (apart from the covenant relationship with the Holy Spirit), you can do nothing…” (John 15:5 NIV). “…[Abide with HIM and he] WILL supply all [your need]… according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19 NASB).

GOD’S FAVOR is the qualified atonement, the restoral of spiritual life, the new creation, being accepted in the beloved, his unspeakable gift of gifts, empowered strength and abilities, being cared for by God, the Holy Spirit (YOUR CAREGIVER), becoming A BLESSING,  BEING GIVEN THE “GIFT” OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and reuniting into the covenant relationship, where all your needs are met.

“… [He sent the ] …one … who can {reunite the covenant relationship between) God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus…” (1 Timothy 2:5 NLT).

“…He(she) that is joined (REUNITED into a covenant relationship) unto the Lord (Jesus) is ONE spirit… [with God again]” (1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV).

 Thus, “…[choose to] ...abide in me, and I in you. (John 15:4 KJV).

“…Apart from Me (apart from the covenant relationship with the Holy Spirit), you can do nothing…” (John 15:5 NIV).

“…[Abide with HIM and he] WILL supply all [your need]… according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19 NASB).


GOD’S FAVOR IS REUNITING INTO THE COVENANT RELATIONSHIP
