ALOHA FRIENDS AND FAMILY,  Beloved of God,  John 3:16,  12:24-26,  17:20-26


A dear friend ask me to share about the meaning of the word “GOSPEL” as to it’s Biblical meaning.  So this is what happened when I sat down with the Holy Spirit at my computer.  Hope the intense meaning of this quest touches your heart as it did mine in searching for God’s Truth that sets us free.

GOSPEL:        Is an old English Word meaning GOD’S TRUTH as in:  creed, credo, dogma, belief, set of beliefs, code of belief, conviction, teaching; 

tenet, maxim, article of faith, canon; 
principle, precept, notion, idea, ideology, theory, thesis.

For my ThD I wrote a thesis called “Keys To The Kingdom” a copy of which can be found at www.Trinity-Aloha.org    Of course I wrote that about 20 years ago and I need to edit some of my poor attitudes out of the book.  So give me some grace if you read it.  And it would be an excellent source of future questions.  Questions are a wonderful way to both teach and learn,  Christ Jesus was exceptional at using this means in having a live interaction.

And of course,  having GOD’s TRUTH is wonderful news.   Unfortunately many have diverted that truth to build their own little ivory palaces and kingdoms.  So it is upon us to go back to the original sources and sort the baby (truth) from the bathwater (lies)…   So to the basic:  Where did we come from, Why are we here, And where are we going?

1.    Why are we here:   We are in a single life time school in the temporary dimension of time to choose between light and darkness.   We are genetically the product of fallen Adam who choose to rebel and choose the darkness and we were all born in a world full of pride, rebellion, lust and sin.  The Creator has allowed this as HE has also provided the Truth to set us free with the Prophets of old and finally with and in the Truth of Christ Jesus.  This allows for a perfect experience in the exercise of free will.  “What does not kill you makes you stronger.”   As our Creator is in the process of creating a heavenly family in HIS IMAGE and LIKENESS.  And the invitation has gone out to all.  But we must be willing to ride ourselves of our character flaws that we inherited from Adam.  We must allow the TRUTH of GOD to saturate our souls and minds to where we will cease being controlled by Adams fallen nature.  That we will learn to live in faith, humility, love, obedience and unity in this present world so as to not wreck the new heavens and earth that GOD wants to create in righteousness.

2.    So how does it work:  So God in HIS wonderful foreknowledge in eternity set in place a process of loving redemption.  In this plan we can be forgiven of our past sins and in HIS hands (so to speak) to become a new creation that is like Christ Jesus.  It is called the Gospel because it is the Truth of God given freely to us by which we can be saved from being rejected by God due to our darkness.   Moses in the beginning of Genesis tells us about redemption in Gen.3:15.  And in Gen.4:4 we see Abel already tuned in to offering a lamb for sins as per Isaiah 53 and Psalms 22.  So as the Truth of God (Gospel) unfolds we see that GOD was already at work in making it possible for us to eat of the tree of good and evil,  have a free will and be forgiven and purged and then also have access tot he tree of life for eternity.  So when we truly, 100% make Christ Jesus LORD then we are placed in a process of sanctification to remove us from the darkness of Adam and lucifer and to be made holy so as to have LIFE, PEACE AND JOY with our Creator for ever.  Otherwise our eternal soul would spend eternity alone in outer darkness for eternity. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”  2 Cor.5:21.  But it is a life time process as Jesus taught us:  “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved,”  Matt. 10:22.  

3.  GOD’S ultimate intent:   Our Creator started out to make us in HIS Image and Likeness,  Gen.1:26-27, and He is still in the process of doing exactly that,  if we will submit ourselves to the process.  But HE will not violate our free will for that is the part of us that make it possible for us to learn to love HIM, ourselves and each other.  As HE is the epitome of LOVE this is an absolute essential and primary part of HIS Vision for us and our need to become a new creation in and through Christ Jesus.   And, Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you  will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ,  Phil. 1:6″  If we will accept HIS victory in our life each day as it comes and not get talked out of our faith in what Christ Jesus did for us. 

Our Creator’s ultimate intent for us is found in Rev. 21:3-6:    And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.   4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.   5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.  6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Isaiah 53:4-5
Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Hebrews 2:9
 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.

Hebrews 12:2
 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Romans 8:16-18
 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs–heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

I am sure there is much more that can be added to this subject but I truly hope this helps the reader to focus on the fact that this life struggle had an end in great rewards or great abandonment.  Don’t be tempted to toss in the towel, that is not an option.  Romans 8:12-39….   Please read it all,  those who want it,  already have the Victory in hand.   Yours in HIS great Love and Wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><   www.Trinity-Aloha.org
