Greetings, my Beloved! To know that the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh do not always go down well with the best of us at times, and God understands, when we, mothers and fathers, relatives and friends, ask ourselves why? But if one ponders upon the terms, “giveth” and “taketh” his sorrowful for that moment should be turned into joy, when he should have come to understand that: (1) when the Lord gives He does not tell us for how long we can have his gifts, for example, in the case of our love ones. But in taking back, however, what is rightly His, we do know for how long our love ones will be in eternity in His presence; and of course, with better company, if you please. Further, if we substitute the term “giveth” for the term “lent” in the said sentence, we should soon come to the conscious realization that all we could every have in this world is temporal since they are just lent to us: and (2) furthermore, what we in the land of the living see as our lost and pain, is actually gain — gain to God the Father, as well as, the company of those in transition, awaiting their physical resurrection at Christ’s coming. [1 Thessalonians 4:13-17] The Word, when understood in the depth of light is, reassuring, rewarding and refreshing. Let us give God Almighty, praise. Hallelujah! Births and deaths are according to the way of life.At physical death, there is a tripartite separation: (1) separation from the physical body, (2) separation from the surface of planet earth, and (3) possible separation from God, the father, and life eternal, or everlasting life, if he/she which refused Christ’s offer of it in his/her life time. Having said thus, we, who think about life here on earth and about that life beyond the grave, would have been all men and women most miserable if there were hope in Christ on earth only. But there in hope not only in Christ while we are here on earth, but also, beyond the grave. [1 Corinthian 15:19] And for those who may have doubts about Christ and the life eternal [John 3:16-17) which He is offering all mankind, Christ Jesus is real. Have faith in God the father; through Christ Jesus, His Son. [Matthew 16:17-18] The believers hope is in Christ Jesus’ resurrection. Our God Almighty is awesome!
Man is dual personality, meaning that he is both a physical and a spirit being. In man there is a fallen nature, too. He inherited his fallen nature from his first parents, namely, Adam and Eve, who disobeyed God Almighty’s command and fell from His glory, according to the Word of God.Lust is defined as: (1) strong sexual desire, (2) any passionate desire or enjoyment, and (3) sensuous appetite regarded as sinful. (The Oxford Popular English Dictionary) We live in a beautiful, wonderful natural world that declares the glory of God Almighty [Psalm 19], and there is no gainsaying about this. But there is another world of lust which needs to be understood, and this is what I am writing about in this my Opinion Post. My opinion post is based upon the Word of God so it is authentic and thus reliable. If I might define the term “lust” I should use the biblical command and definition of it, which should serve as an inspiration to you. It is found in the book of 1 John 2: 15-17 and it says, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in Him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” In our InJew Culture in Christ, we are not permitted to love the world neither the things that are of it because God Almighty in His infinite wisdom says so through His Word. Lust has become the order of the day and we see it in its many forms in our modern day societies. It is manifested through the actors in their various roles at theaters; super stars in movies; clubs; night spots; in the videos promoted by entertainment industry; and in magazines, portable storage devices, such as CDs and DVDs, other electronic media, and by some adults and young people in the streets. Lust due to the love of the pride of life, has caused many a man in his attempt to gain the whole world, perhaps in a day, to lose his soul. The get rich syndrome has driven some to the extreme where they worship the creature, rather than the Creator, who made them. Lust is limited to one’s lifetime. And his world of lust passes away with him when he, (that particular person) passes away. But what is it that the man, who has lived his lifetime accumulating the things he has been lusting after, carries with him when he dies? I have attended funerals and even bury the dead; and have not seen any of them taking their possessions with them, save a piece of jewelry or two. And what good would that be to them anyway. A. – ‘junkie’ among two detained Police have detained two men suspected of digging up the corpse of a 14-year-old girl from a Corriverton, Corentyne cemetery and sexually violating her remains. Shocked residents who were strolling through the area around 06:30 hrs yesterday discovered the nude corpse outside its tomb.
In our InJew culture in Christ, the word of God is our rule and practice, especially the New Testament. I am not perfect, but I am seeking perfection by the grace of God Almighty Jehovah (Yahweh His Hebrew name), through Christ Jesus. Instead of “lust” which is against His will for my life;” I choose the “love” of God Almighty because through the Word of God, I receive the assurance that if I fulfill the will of God Almighty for my life: I will stand with the righteous on the Day of Judgment and beyond.
A distinct and unequivocal order or command of Yahweh, our Creator and Most High God, is that all people of faith in Christ Jesus love not only Him, and one another, but also, our neighbor; in this case, say, the person next door. [Deuteronomy 6:4; I John 4:7; Matthew 22:37- 40] Of the four above mentioned Greek words with the English description of the term “love” on the list, only the last two were ever used in the New Testament. But it is only one of the two which describes Almighty God’s love— His unconditional love, and that is none other than the characteristic Greek word “Agape.” Our love for Him must match His love for us.

Welcome to In-Jews Nation in Christ Communiqué! Wednesday, November 05, Stormy 2014 :
The term “Bread” as used by Jesus Christ, has become part of our InJew Culture. Jesus counter response the devil was in no uncertain terms, when He said, “It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” [Matthew 4: 4] Jesus’ use of the term “Bread” had a double meaning. The biblical principle behind eating pure “Bread” is to sweat for it. It is written, “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread….” [ Genesis 3:19] The term “bread” was used at a crucial, but most appropriate time when Jesus would have been weak in His physical body, after fasting for forty days and forty nights.
Thus from the lesson learnt from the above mentioned victory , by following Jesus our example, man ought to be equipped and be ready with the Word of God to defeat the purpose of the devil, who is also referred to in the scriptures as a thief. The scriptures say, “The thief cometh not , but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” I am come that they might have life , and that they might have it more abundantly. [John 10: 10] n contrast to the devil, Jesus’ purpose here on earth is wrapped up in the scripture which says, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” [John 10:10] Choose the abundant life in Christ Jesus, and do not allow the devil to snach it —His offer and gift of abundant life, from you.
The Acknowledged term “Bread” used by both the devil : and by Jesus the Christ, is important to all mankind in that it gives us an understanding of how to manage our daily bread, with the knowledge that there should be a balance between the material and the spiritual bread.
