What, baggage, Saint Paul, he even changed his name, why, there are wonders that are yet to be explained, what is important, is the word, baggage. Paul would have been a hate figure today, judged on the number of crisis’s across the world, based on their past performance, Paul boasted to his former colleagues, how proud he was to kill Christians, or for want of simplicity, how he, Paul, when named Saul, was only delighted to tell the pharisee’s, how devout he was, how inspired he was, to do what he was doing. God can do anything, turned Paul’s zeal into an instrument of God, man of fear, becomes man of light, his zeal didn’t change, he just got the direction right; Follow in the steps of Jesus, amen.
The world is full of people, fired by the inner fire, they get involved in so called new style religious groups, who give a presentation of God, they get involved in groups, that claim there is nothing you can do, to impress God,even though it’s written. There are those who want to claim ownership of your access to the light, there are those who construct rules, to make you feel totally unable and unworthy, with the language they use. Only God is good, as Jesus said, but even today, you have the insert of words,such as pure virgin, virginal, words associated with women and their chasteness, words few if no one understands, barriers. Men own women it seems too, all right if your a man, bad luck if your a girl, and it goes on and on. As for the mixing of the wine and blood, the water and the blood, there are lessons in there too. It’s very simple, loose the brand. Paul changed his name, Saul, he didn’t want to put fear into those he previously persecuted, amen. Baggage has many meanings. Lets not hear about violence, we need air and space, not more baggage, amen.
So what happened to Saint Paul, internally that is. The baggage that Paul had accrued before his conversion to God, through Christ Jesus, was lifted off him, God absolved him, under stood his error, so the light stayed in him. The lesson for all who want to believe, is to take the faith test, the internal jab if you want the pun. And what is that you ask, what is the key, there are those who seek, there are those who seek understanding, others just want to pass the test, they will do anything to get the certificate, they will cheat if it’s possible, it isn’t, the demon has tried and failed, amen. So the test of a believer, where do you start, does the test ever end, when do you celebrate, can you think of the options on this, proving your faith.
The celebration begins when you pass from life, not before, there are exceptions though, those taken straight up, but in a nutshell, while on this planet, space overhead too, you live the life of a believer, amen, no cheating mind you?.
