Science of God through the study of Christ's doctrine

Cliquez sur le bouton de lecture pour lire l'audio :

It is a joy to once again be with you to apply our heart to the science of God through the study of Christ's doctrine. I am Faustin, a member of the church of Plantation in Florida. In our previous session, we proved how different biblical contexts could change facts about the word gospel. We taught in Mark 1:14-15 that the gospel of God consisted of informing only Jews that the kingdom of David was at hand, and in Mark passage 16:15-16, we learned that it connoted proclaiming to both Jews and Pagans the things that are the keys of the kingdom of God.

In today's session, I first want to remind you that the polysemic term gospel of Christ conveys many factual ideas or thoughts. I also desire to analyze one of its diverse inherent qualities and values, which goes: “The gospel of Christ is the only idea capable of establishing a relationship of father and children between God and humans.” In other words, only through the gospel of God should man enjoy the privilege of becoming children of God (John 1:12).

Before we explain that assertion using the light God’s science provides, it is vital to highlight that human beings have already been enjoying a relationship with God ever since this one breathed his breath of life into Adam. He allowed Adam and Eve to share it with their offspring through procreation. This breath that Job called the spirit of the almighty (Job 32:8) mainly grants us the ability to understand. No wonder man can acquire knowledge of the facts God inserted in each created thing and is empowered to use those factual thoughts to envision and fabricate new realities to enhance and embetter their conditions.

But Adam and Eve messed it up when they decided to disobey God by touching the forbidden fruit; as a result, they accepted Satan’s sting of death and passed it down to their children. This sting gives us the human nature we usually refer to. That explains why sin has entered the world and brought death upon humanity (in this setting, the word world connotes the human mind or intellect, Romans 5:12). Humans start sinning early because the imagination of their hearts is corrupt and evil in their youth (Genesis 8:21). The devil’s sinful nature first shared with Adam and later with everyone, has built a relationship of father and children between Satan and Adam’s descendants. The thoughts or ideas we imagine turn evil and incline us to do our Father’s will (John 8:44).

The Holy Spirit called Adam's descendants sons of disobedience in Ephesians 3:2. Unfortunately, very early, humans have begun transgressing God’s will and identifying with Satan in their thoughts, words, and actions. Consequently, humanity becomes short of God’s glory and faces the eternal death God has prepared for Satan and his messengers in the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8).

Thankfully, God decided to extend his love and mercy to humankind through the gospel of Christ. The gospel is the seed the Father made out of the human body of Jesus to beget and produce more children of obedience to God. The Holy Spirit, through Paul, reminded the Corinthians that the gospel was the seed by which he engendered them in Christ. We read in 1 Corinthians 4:15, “For though ye have ten thousand tutors in Christ, yet have ye, not many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I begat you through the gospel.” Note that the concept of seed plays a crucial role in procreation. God gifted most living things, especially humans, with some form of seed to multiply their kinds or races. The word seed relates to the idea of reproduction. For example, we spread a plant seed in the soil to ensure the reproduction of its kind. The seeds of a man and a woman may combine to bring another human being into existence.

The Science of God, through Christ’s doctrine, uses the word seed mainly to convey its application to God or Satan. This doctrine portrays the human mind as a field where Satan’s thoughts of disobedience grow to produce more sons of disobedience. That same mind can also be the field to spread God’s idea of Justice to beget children of righteousness.

No wonder Paul states in Romans 5:12, “Therefore, as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin; and so death passed unto all men, for that all sinned.” In this context, sin refers to the sting of death, the evil thought the devil inoculated into Adam and Eve’s mind. As a seed, the idea of resisting God's will dwells and grows in each human. As a result, we become short of God’s glory, that is, dead due to our sins (Ephesians 2:1, “Being dead by our sins or trespasses). Paul went on to say, “wherein ye once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the powers of the air, of the spirit that now worketh in the sons of disobedience.” There is an original evil idea acting in humanity for the children of Adam to naturally be and remain sons of disobedience, meaning Satan’s sons.

Jesus points out in John 8:44, “Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of the devil, as [your] father, and ye desire to do the lusts of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has not stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks falsehood, he speaks of what is his own; for he is a liar and its father.”

So, the devil is the father of humankind not because he created them, but by his sting of death, he injected into our minds and urged us to do his will constantly. In 1 Corinthians 2:14, the Holy Spirit agrees with Jesus’ statement about why those Jews could not understand Jesus’ thoughts. The Holy Spirit stated that they were still natural beings, and for this reason, they could not receive things that could only be discerned spiritually. We read in 1 Corinthians 2:14, “Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged.”

Finally, with the human body of Jesus, the Father prepared the gospel of Christ, the vivifying idea to counteract Satan’s sinful nature so we may no longer serve sin (Romans 6:5). The sting of death, which is sin, can't cause our death anymore. Anyone who believes in the idea or the concept of Christ's death, and his burial, and his resurrection, and his appearance to Cephas and is baptized into those things by the Holy Spirit in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, receives Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Our persuasion of the life-giving idea entitles us to become co-heirs of Jesus Christ. In other words, the same Father of glory who resurrected Jesus has already raised us from the dead (Ephesians 2:5). God has become our Father, not because he made us in his image, but because of the gospel of Christ, his seed of righteousness that engenders the believer to be born again as children of God. Since our sins are forgiven, we come complete with God’s grace and glory. Jesus Christ gives us the right to call His Father our heavenly Father. Anything we need, we can ask the Father in the name of Jesus, our co-heir, who provides us with the privilege to humbly be in the Father’s presence.
