    Those who have the mind of Christ can spiritually judge all things because they have received the things of the Spirit which things are not with words from man’s wisdom, but that which the Holy Spirit teaches which compares spiritual with spiritual (1Cor 2:16-13); this is so that our faith would stand in the power of God and not with the enticing words of men. (2:5-4)

    Once we believe in Jesus, we need to come to learn, under His light yoke of repentant faith so that we could be instructed and have rest (the holy understanding, see Prov 9:10) for our souls. (Matt 11:28-29 cf. Jer 31:18-19) This form of teaching causes obedience from our hearts so that we would no longer serve sin; but become servants of righteousness (Rom 6:17-18 with Titus 2:12); unto holiness (Rom 6:22). Because ALL scripture should be given unto us for our instruction in righteousness, we can be perfected to go on to do good works. (2Tim 3:16-17) These are the servants who labor among us (in the word) who are to be highly esteemed because of this loving work. This is how we live in peace. (5:12-13)

    Those who have the full assurance of hope are diligently following after those who have inherited the promises (of God) through faith and patience. (Heb 6:11-12) These (who have inherited the promises) are laboring in the love that ministers to the saints (with the word of God). These are the meek and patient servants of the Lord who are instructing those who are opposing themselves so that God might grant repentance unto the acknowledging of the truth that they can be recovered from doing the devil’s will. (2Tim 2:24-26) For we need to receive the rain (the word) often upon us so that we might bring forth the herbs (of repentant faith) and receive blessings from God. (Heb 6:7) Christ needs to free us from our bondage to sin so that we may go on to patiently wait through the Spirit for the hope of the righteous and loving ability (Gal 5:1 & 5-6); so that we can serve others by love. (5:13) These are the things that accompany salvation. (Heb 6:10-9) Remember just a little leaven (which is false doctrine) will leaven the whole church. (Gal 5:8) Are you being hindered from obeying this truth? (5:7)

    This is why Jesus warned us to beware of the doctrine of the religious leaders (Matt 16:12); who omit the teaching of the doctrine of Christ which has us lay the foundation of repentance for true faith towards God so that we might go on to (Christian) perfection. (born again experience which is a process not instantly attained by a prayer as they teach) And this we will do, if God permits. (Heb 6:1&3) We cannot even know the will of God to do it without this doctrine. (Jn 7:17) This is why God sends (To His elect) one of His servants (1Thess 3:2, 1Cor 4:17,Eph 6:21, Rom 10:15) (we don’t go find our own teacher) who speaks His words (Jn 3:34); which words are not with enticing words of man’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power (1Cor 2:4); which compares spiritual with spiritual so that our faith would stand in the power of God, not in the wisdom of men. (2:13&5) Those who have this hope CAN purify themselves (because they are asking God to help them) even as He is pure. For we know that those who commit sin transgress the law and He (Jesus) was manifested to take away our sins. (1Jn 3:3-5) Don’t be deceived, those who do righteousness are righteous, even as He is righteous. (3:7) A willingness to be here is acceptable to God. (2Cor 8:12) For He first gives us a willingness and then causes us to do these good things for His good pleasure. (Phil 2:13)

    Those who are born of God cannot continue in sin (without confession) because His seed (His word) remains in them. (3:9) These (and those who are willing) can cleanse themselves from all filthiness of flesh (actions) and spirit (thoughts) in the fear of God so that they can perfect holiness. (2Cor 7:1) The fear of the Lord is to hate all evil and pride and every false way to come unto God. (Prov 8:13) Being holy is having understanding. (Prov 9:10) For we know that there can be no conversion unto being healed without understanding. (Matt 13:15, Jn 12:40, Acts 28:27) This is the good hope which we can receive through (the teaching of) grace that will comfort our hearts and establish us so that we can do every good work and word. (2Thess 2:16-17) This is why we need to ask God to work His truth into us so that it’s light would come out of us (Jn 3:21); without which we will be under the new condemnation of believing in Jesus while practicing evil deeds now that the light has come. (3:19&16) It’s all about God’s workmanship upon us (now that we believe) to create us in Christ so that we could do good. (Eph 2:10) This is the gift of God so that we would not boast (2:8) ; without which God will send a strong delusion unto us to believe a lie because we would not receive this truth but rather had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2Thess 2:11-12)

    God chooses us unto salvation through the sanctifying (process) of the Spirit and belief of this truth so that we can become obedient. (2Thess 2:13, 1Pet 1:2) Without our crucifixion with Christ we will continue to live in the flesh without the faith of the Son of God who loved us enough to give Himself for us. And we will frustrate this (teaching of the) grace of God. (Gal 2:20-21) Rather let us ask God to (make us willing to) crucify our old man so that the body of sin would be destroyed so that we would no longer serve sin. (Rom 6:6-8) This is the form of doctrine that needs to be obeyed from the heart so that we can become servants of righteousness unto holiness.(6:17-18&22) And we know that the holy is the understanding. (Prov 9:10) Are you subject to this hope? (Rom 8:20) Then you know that we are saved by this hope (8:24); which hope will have us patiently waiting on the Spirit for the righteous and loving ability (Gal 5:5-6) ; after we have been freed by Christ from the yoke of bondage (to sin) (Gal 5:1) so that we can go on in the liberty that serves others by (this) love. (5:13)

    Let us ask for this hope which is within the promises of God (Acts 26:6); so that you would know that all of God’s promises are Yes and Amen. (2Cor 1:20) Then you would also know that He who establishes us in Christ is God; who also seals those who are His with the seal that has the evidence of being seen to have departed from iniquity after naming the name of Christ. (2Cor1:21-22& 2Tim 2:19) Let us command God to work these good things into us (Is 45:11, Eph 2:10); so that we may love our Lord Jesus Christ within sincerity. Amen. ( Eph 6:24)

    Love rejoices in the truth that reveals grace,

    1Cor 13:6, Col 1:6
