Washed,Sanctified,Justified with Christformation in you.

Christformation in you is eternal and will remain forever.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (New International Version)

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Yeast or Christformation? You choose........

Hypocrisy is bread with yeast and Christformation in you is bread without yeast.

Mark 8:14-21 (New International Version - UK)

14 The disciples had forgotten to bring bread, except for one loaf they had with them in the boat.

15 Be careful, Jesus warned them. Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod.

16 They discussed this with one another and said, It is because we have no bread.

17 Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened?

18 Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don't you remember?

19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up? Twelve, they replied.

20 And when I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up? They answered, Seven.

21 He said to them, Do you still not understand?

Christformation in apostle Peter

Apostle Peter was found here at the seas where he had returned to his previous livelihood as a fisherman. He stood defeated temporarily because Satan had "sieved him like wheat" at the trial and cricifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ at Calvary. The Lord Jesus reassured him that he had to go through those moments of trials of his faith. He reinstated Peter to serve Him again.Christformation path is a trying path but an eternally rewarding way.

John 21 (New International Version)

Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Tiberias. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (called Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. "I'm going out to fish," Simon Peter told them, and they said, "We'll go with you." So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

He called out to them, "Friends, haven't you any fish?"
"No," they answered.

He said, "Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some." When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord!" As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, "It is the Lord," he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water.The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards. When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.

Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you have just caught."

Simon Peter climbed aboard and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, "Come and have breakfast." None of the disciples dared ask him, "Who are you?" They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Jesus Reinstates Peter

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?"
"Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you."
Jesus said, "Feed my lambs."
Again Jesus said, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me?"
He answered, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you."
Jesus said, "Take care of my sheep."
The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?"
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you."

Jesus said, "Feed my sheep. I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go." Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, "Follow me!"

Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, "Lord, who is going to betray you?") When Peter saw him, he asked, "Lord, what about him?"

Jesus answered, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me."

Christformation in you is the Olive Oil

Exodus 35:4-9 ( New International Version)

Moses said to the whole Israelite community, "This is what the LORD has commanded: From what you have, take an offering for the LORD. Everyone who is willing is to bring to the LORD an offering of gold, silver and bronze; blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen; goat hair; ram skins dyed red and hides of sea cows ; acacia wood; olive oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense; and onyx stones and other gems to be mounted on the ephod and breastpiece.

It is the olive oil that keeps the lamps burning in the Tabernacle.The Lord Jesus talked of this 'oil'' in the Gospel of Matthews Chapter 25 where He said the "wise-virgins" had oil in their lamps whereas the "foolish" ones didn't. It's Christformation in you that will keep the lamp (your born-again spirit) burning with the eternal testimony of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Matthew 25 (New International Version)

"At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
"At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!'

"Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.'

" 'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.'

"But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.

"Later the others also came. 'Sir! Sir!' they said. 'Open the door for us!'

"But he replied, 'I tell you the truth, I don't know you.'

"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

All those without this "Olive Oil" that could keep their lamps burning with the anointing of the Holy Spirit through Christformation in them, the Lord Jesus Christ said " He did know them"

We will have to "buy" Christformation with much tribulation. We must be willing to obey the Holy Spirit to work out our salvation( willing to carry the cross of Christformation) with fear and trembling and making every effort to add Christformation into ourselves.

To be continued........

Christformation in apostle Paul.

Apostle Paul stressed on Christformation in believers more than just claiming that we are Christians or servants of Christ even when they were not. If you truly are one, it will show through Christformation in you. You cannot deny this truth,the apostle teaches.Why did Paul go through such trials of his faith if not for Christformation in himself.It's not our own 'works' that Paul was emphasizing on but Christformation in us that happens when we obey the Holy Spirit's leading as we walk the walk of faith obediently to God and His Christ.The walk of faith may become difficult but we must be faithful in wanting to obey Christ through His Spirit till the end,especially for full Christformation in us.For this reason Paul suffered knowing that he will be rewarded with full Christformation in himself as well as in those whom he ministered to.

2 Corinthians 11:21-33 (New International Version)

To my shame I admit that we were too weak for that!

What anyone else dares to boast about—I am speaking as a fool—I also dare to boast about. Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they Abraham's descendants? So am I. Are they servants of Christ? (I am out of my mind to talk like this.) I am more. I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false brothers. I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches. Who is weak, and I do not feel weak? Who is led into sin, and I do not inwardly burn?

If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness. The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, who is to be praised forever, knows that I am not lying. In Damascus the governor under King Aretas had the city of the Damascenes guarded in order to arrest me. But I was lowered in a basket from a window in the wall and slipped through his hands.

Apostle Paul was saved, led to a land far away from Jerusalem, prepared through a walk of Christformation in himself, suffered for the preaching of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and wrote about Christformation in himself and those he ministered the gospel to in all his 14 epistles to the churches during his imprisonment and unimaginable trials of his faith in Christ and his God.

Serve as a Slave of Righteousness

Serve as a slave of righteousness on earth. The greatest example of a slave of righteousness is the Lord Jesus Christ himself.The disciples except for Judas Iscariot,served as slaves of righteousness. The apostle Paul was the other example.

We often asked, why did they have to suffer that much? Especially, the Lord Jesus Christ who had to be crucified on the cross. It's the suffering of the Greatest Slave of Righteousness. He then set the example for the disciples and us.

Matthew 20:20-28 (New International Version)

20Then the mother of Zebedee's sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.

21"What is it you want?" he asked.
She said, "Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom."

22"You don't know what you are asking," Jesus said to them. "Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?"
"We can," they answered.

23Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father."

24When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers.

25Jesus called them together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.

26Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,

27and whoever wants to be first must be your slave

28just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

You please God when you serve as a slave of righteousness and not as a slave of sins.

The apostle Paul saw it fit to suffer these things for full Christformation in himself. If we are to be slaves of righteousness this is how it may appear as in the case of the apostle.

2 Corinthians 6:4-10 (New International Version)

Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

Why did Paul persevere through these trials? Yes, to be a slave of righteousness for the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ on earth. To show forth the power of God to unbelieving and wicked mankind,either for their salvation or chastisement,you'll need to be a servant of righteousness or even a slave of it.This may puzzle people around you, as it was in this passage above. The apostle Paul spoke of the servanthood as well as the power of that sincere servanthood,and he had never spoken from the comfort of ordering and commanding others like the world does.He lived his life as an example of Christformation in himself at whatever cost it takes to receive just that.There was no other short-cuts for him.He went through everything for Christ to be formed in him fully.

Blessings and Woes (Curses)

Deuteronomy 27:11-13 (New International Version)

On the same day Moses commanded the people:

When you have crossed the Jordan, these tribes shall stand on Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph and Benjamin. 13 And these tribes shall stand on Mount Ebal to pronounce curses: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan and Naphtali.

If a 'prophet' sweet-talks his people, I have doubts about his position.

A true prophet of God speaks not to turn people towards himself or his organization but to God. If he says anything that will benefit himself or his organization,he is a lying prophet. The true prophet speaks for God's glory and not for self or his own establishment's glorification.

Consider this is what The Lord Jesus Christ said: Take note that He said nothing for His own benefit or advantage over others.He said what one deserves irregardless of their position, status,religious background and roots.

Luke 6:20-26 (New International Version)

Looking at his disciples, he said:

"Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.

Blessed are you who hunger now,
for you will be satisfied.

Blessed are you who weep now,
for you will laugh.

Blessed are you when men hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.

"Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their fathers treated the prophets.

"But woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.

Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.

Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will mourn and weep.

Woe to you when all men speak well of you,
for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets.

The Lord Jesus Christ pronounced both the blessings and curses to those who would deserve them.He never sweet-talked His people with sugary-coated messages.He never based His messages on racial or religious preferences. He spoke against the Jews if they were wrong,like the Pharisees and Saducees. He blessed them, if they were right, like Nathaneal and the rest of the disciples except for Judas. He spoke the truth only. The righteous of Christ deserve blessings while the wicked children of the Devil deserve curses. That's the truth, because they had chosen that path themselves, therefore they would deserve what they have chosen. No one had forced them to that path. If you choose the wrong mountain to stand on, whose fault is it?
You will only receive what you deserve.

John 8:42-47 (New International Version)

Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don't you believe me? He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God."

From the passages above, we realize that people do not seem to recognise who is from God and who is not. Their understanding had been so clouded that they did not know who came and had gone from them.Why were they unable to see,hear and understand? Why were they unable to know the difference from light and darkness,bitter and sweet,good from evil?

Isaiah 5:19-21 (New International Version)

19 to those who say, "Let God hurry,
let him hasten his work
so we may see it.
Let it approach,
let the plan of the Holy One of Israel come,
so we may know it."

20 Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.

21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.

A lot of woes but just a warning though. We can turn them into blessings if we seek to see,hear and understand truth diligently.

Jeremiah 29:12-13 (New International Version)

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
