Gods Gift of Faith for Salvation
Spiritual Gifts for Works Predestined

        This may indeed be a teaching, needed to correct a common teaching error, a teaching that salvation has nothing to do with works, or that God has no need of our works. It is true secular or perhaps the seriously misled may be involved in works of iniquity, however the works predestined by God before we were born needs be understood. What are these works the Lord God has called upon His faithful to accomplish, this is fully revealed within the teaching of Christ and His apostle's. Christ brought the mature disciple together telling these faithful He was sending them out as workers into the world. Work enabled by their spiritual gift in which to disciple the nations. Consider the entire congregation or church as a literal training ground, in which to prepare each for their works.

        Certainly the Lord is not sending out babes, mere babies new in salvation, and this is made clear within instruction of need for renewing of the mind, out of the natural world of wisdom and knowledge, retrained in the wisdom and knowledge of our Lord God. This is described in Ephesians, that God gives spiritual gifts needed to accomplish the works predestined. This beginning with the administered gifts to bring service gifts forward, and each then doing their part bringing the entire congregation into unity and maturity. The warning otherwise as told of a king finding an approaching enemy army, the warning need send spies to determine if his small army could defeat the very large and trained army. The warning evident being unready, needing as unprepared to sue for peace before the war begins.

        And in this what do we find today of the many church de-nominations, little more than social clubs with excellent kitchen and meeting rooms. Of people that meet every Sunday and maybe Wednesday, sending messages of love between friends, prophesying how God loves each. Retreating to prayer closets where war us fought, praying also that every of our needs be fulfilled. Loving the enemy and lending while not expecting anything back, much of this accomplished through support of one or more missionary. Unaware of the warning from Christ, describing those able to discern the sign of the weather, but unable to discern the sign of the times. How else to understand the prophetic verse saying, the workers are few.

        Some teach that our salvation is by faith, this is error, our faith is a gift from God... said in measure that also needs be understood. Certainly in the last of end days, workers are desperately needed, prophecy saying in these last days will be a generation wanting instead to believe a lie, and the love of many will grow cold, when a great delusion will at that time be sent. In all of this an important verse needs be understood, of those who believed, being given the Holy Spirit as deposit and guarantee. The key word of this verse is 'believed', and this was taught throughout the New Covenant (Testament). This is very important, until the immature are well grounded in the teachings of the New Testament, they will not understand properly the teaching of the Old Testament... of which today much teaching is out of context and in error, by those misled, and those that mislead.

        With each working within their spiritual gift provided, the entire congregation will be well aware of what is happening not only in the natural world, but also as important in the spiritual world. Until Satan is released from the abyss, with his dark angels, they will be working in the spiritual world. Their abode is called the kingdom of the air, meaning the spiritual realm of this earth (Ephesians 2:2).This is not true of the Nephilim, from lack of teaching, few are aware of warning in Eph 6:12 "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places" [NKJV]. The seed of the woman then are the nations as mankind created by God. There will also be the spiritual hosts of Satan and his fallen angels... however within the natural world of which few are aware, are the seed of Satan called Nephilim.

        The last warning will be spoken by Christ, in the time of judgment, described in verse saying Matt 7:21-23 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." [KJV] These described as neither hot nor cold, God says He will spit from His mouth, and revelation telling of saints at Satan's release from the abyss that will be conquered. So there are works of the believers, works of Satan and his fallen angels, and works of the Nephilim. How important are the works predestined, James 2:18-20 "But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?" [NKJV]
