Read the New Testament. If you want to go to heaven and the Lord you need to be Born of God.
True restoration begins with the realization that you are born for a purpose and a price has been paid for you to accomplish that purpose. I have paid a price for my purpose, it is hard but just as true as the very first day I walked on the earth and saw the great city of Babylon and its influence upon my life. I remember when I arrived I stood and looked and sensed what it felt like to be in such a great place. Truth is, it feels like heaven to me. So do you.
Therein lies the power. Therein lies the price that is paid when you forget who you think you are and who God says you are and enable you to go forward without the heavy burdens of care that accompany separation. It is there in Babylon that I learned that who I really am in Christ is an invisible dwelling set into the earth, here my Father’s house is present.
I now understand that I am this body and in my dwelling, there is my purpose, and with purpose, I live my life. I add value to my life and life more so in my God-ordained gifts, and the bonus is that my gifts are making a difference because I have a purpose, I have meaning, and the bonus is that I am setting my life into order. Honestly, it is just like a pebble being tossed into the fountain, all the water disappeared but I am sure that pebble was led there by something bigger than me, who was I? I didn’t even know until I got here. So the revelations for me are bringing back the memories of Heaven and moving forward with a better understanding of myself and my life.
We sense the heavy burden within us all once again when, after time, we start to lose who we once thought we were and where we once came from, and worse yet, when we lose our purpose the way that we think it should be. The way that God has gifted every human being with gifts, talents, abilities, and skills to be successful in whatever they choose. This was and is a great mystery to figure out your gifts.
The deception started with our first parents and their gifts. First, you were the physical self, then you had a soul, which is your mind, then you had a natural ability for your talent, then you had a purpose with your gift. This was and is just one deception that was foisted upon our faith. The devil played with these truths, suborned them for his own benefit, and brought disharmony and all kinds of evil into the world through the ideas of male supremacy, slavery, greed, etc. Into God’s picture of perfection and he was revealed as the inventor of all evil. At that time the first lie was born. Man in his perfection had forgotten that he was perfection yet.
So what do you need to do? Get into right standing with God by putting each of these Deuteds into action. For we are covenant right now in Christ Jesus. Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the Gentiles have my grace and peace. To those who are outside my grace and peace the belt of truth is let me point out to them. The outside may see many examples of sin but the inner man knows none of that because you are the covenant man and you have sealed vow and unpresentable so that your gifts are effective in the earth only by the grace of God.
Be transferred in the likeness of your person, that your image may become gracious as water, and the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ may abound in you. Get into righteousness than that you and all others may be glorified in the same way with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you want to argue about the New Testament authorship of Christ you can find someone knowledgeable in the Letter of 1 Corinthians to 12:26-27. Paul was an apostle of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is God’s apostle to the twelve apostles. He said that he was assigned to the church to prepare the way for the latter to be given the authority to preach. He said that the church (Christians) should come together in the name of everyone to pray for them. And in the next verse, it says that when you pray you are to pray in the spirit. You can never pray in the spirit out of envy or vain selfishness.
