LET'S LOOK AT THE WORDS OF PAUL IN THE BIBLE . . .
I. Colossians 1 New Life Version (NLV)
Paul Gives Thanks for the Christians in Colossae
1 This letter is from Paul, a missionary for Jesus Christ. God chose me to work for Him. This letter is from brother Timothy also. 2 I am writing to you who belong to Christ in the city of Colossae. May all the Christian brothers there continue to have loving-favor and peace from God our Father. 3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, (YAHSHUAH“God’s Salvation”), in our prayers for you.
4 We thank God because we have heard about your faith in Christ Jesus (that God remains the same AND IN US) and your love for all of God’s people. 5 You have this because of the hope which is kept safe for you in AND by GOD’S VERY HEART AND SOUL IN YOU. Some time ago you heard about His hope AND Good News which is the message of truth, ALL ABOUT GOD and His wonderful concern and purpose for us. 6 This Good News is present with you now. It is so magnificent and powerful producing results and spreading all over the world as it did among you from the first day you heard it and understood that it is all about BECOMING ONE WITH THE POWER FROM ON HIGH IN YOU, so so much love, God’s ahavah love. At that time, you came to know what God’s kindness AND LOVE truly means and completely changes you. IT’S GOD’S HEART AND SOUL IN US.
KNOWING AND SEEING GOD and HIS MANIFESTION OF LOVE AND POWER . . . IN US !
The Good News came to you the same as it is now going out to all the WHOLE world THROUGH YAHSHUAH – GOD’S SALVATION – LIFE ITSELF. . . THROUGH GOD’S RUACH HAKODESH, HIS HEART AND SOUL, REVEALED IN US.
Lives are being renewed. . . by KNOWING THIS GOOD NEWS. You understood the truth about God’s loving-kindness WHICH IS HIM. 7 You heard the Good News through our much-loved brother Epaphras. He is a faithful servant of Christ. 8 He told us that the Holy Spirit had FILLED you WITH much love.
(The indwelling presence of God’s Heart and Soul IN US).
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit . . . God’s Heart and Soul.
9 This is why I have never stopped praying for you bringing you before God our Father since I heard about you. I ask God that you may know what He wants you to understand and ENJOY AS YOU BE WHO YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE AND PURPOSED TO BE.
I ask God to fill you TO THE FULLEST with the wisdom and understanding the Holy Spirit gives. 10 Then your lives will please the Lord. You will do every kind of good work, and you will know more about God and His tremendous Love for you.
11 I pray that God’s great power will make you strong, and that you will have joy as you wait UPON HIM ( WRAPPED UP IN HIM) and do not give up.
( that is what true faith is- the highest worth and value –something really to hold on to, with the assuredness.)
Assuredness. noun. The fact or condition of being without doubt: assurance, certainty, certitude, confidence, conviction, positiveness, sureness, surety. same ).
12 I pray that you will ALWAYS BE giving thanks to the Father. He has made it so you can share the good things given to those who belong to Christ who are in the light. 13 God took us out of a life of darkness. He has put us in the holy nation of His much-loved Son.
14 We have been bought by His blood and made free. Our sins are forgiven through Him (by the very fullness of God in us – SEE IT IS LIFE ITSELF. . .TAKE A BREATH, KNOW “IT IS YOU MY GOD” IN ME).
But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.
GOD’S LIFE IN YOU –YAHSHUAH –JESUS !
15 Christ is as God is. God cannot be seen. Christ lived
(SO GOD CAN BE KNOWN AND BE SEEN and explained).
Before anything was made (NO ONE COULD SEE OR UNDERSTAND GOD – THEY DIDN’T EVEN EXIST) 16 God SO WONDERFULLY made everything in the heavens and on the earth through Christ (YAHSHUAH“God’s Salvation”) BY GIVING US HIS LIFE (meaning all of existence is a part of Him, ALL ABOUT God, and not separate from Him!). YAHSHUAH“God’s Salvation” IS GOD’S VERY LIFE THAT IS GIVEN TO US (WE ARE THAT LIFE)as all things are birthed through Him. God’s very essence is who we are, HIS HEART AND SOUL !
Through AND BY Christ, God made everything that is seen and things that are not seen. He made all the powers of heaven. Everything was made by Him and for Him (SO EVERYTHING CREATED COULD KNOW AND SEE AND COMMUNE WITH GOD THEIR FATHER ). THAT ALL HEARTS MAY BE ENCOURAGED HAVING BEEN KNIT TOGETHER WITH GOD, ATTAINING TO ALL THE WEALTH THAT COMES FROM THE ASSURANCE OF UNDERSTANDING, RESULTING IN THE TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD’S MYSTERY, THAT IS, IN CHRIST HIMSELF, IN WHOM ARE HIDDEN ALL THE TREASURES OF WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE OF GOD !
17 YES, IT IS Christ OUR Messiah, OUR Salvation, YAHSHUAH is our very life and He was before all things with God. All things are held together and continue by Him, the very core of God .
WHO AFTER HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN SAT DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, AND GIVEN ALL DOMINION POWER AND GLORY.
18 Because all things are created by Christ, HE has all RULE OVER ALL and all is subject under Him. God’s WILL is that Christ be His GLORY and every knee will bow to Him and be the same as Him, His LIFE.
II.( Christ - IS ALL OF GOD’S HEART AND SOUL-HE IS OUR BABY LAMB TO BE CONSUMED for us to realize it’s about more than what we see in this world ,or think of ourselves, it is the revealing of the Kingdom of God, God’s very heart and soul, which is the actual essence of our LIVING God living in us. Our highest worth and value !
“ I come that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly.” - ETERNAL
( WE CAN SEE AND KNOW GOD by Him, in us) . That’s how we fulfill the very first commandment “to love God with all of our heart, with all of our soul, with all of our might ”- by all of God’s love, all of His heart, all of His soul, and all of His might in us. You see that is how The Kingdom of God is the fulfillment of His body! ALL IS FOR GOD BY GOD. YAHOVAH a name God says is His name forever . . . means GOD IS ONE WITH ALL.
YAHSHUA IS GOD’S beginning of all things. He is the first OF LIFE to be exalted above ALL AND anything outside of His LIFE is darkness, and becomes INSIGNIFICANT powerless and irrelevant. GOD IS ALL AND IS TO HAVE FIRST PLACE IN LIFE’S EVERYTHING. THERE IS NO DARKNESS WITH GOD !
19 God the Father was pleased to have everything made perfect by LIFE ITSELF, Christ, His Son, who reveals all of God. Let God manifest Himself in you THROUGH HIS LIFE, JESUS, YAHSHUAH. HIMSELF IN YOU ! The MIRACLE . . . GOD’S LIFE in us – LIFE ITSELF !
LIFE ITSELF, OVERCAME ALL, by reconciling all THAT WAS hidden AND in SEPARATION and foreign TO THE CLOSENESS OF GOD, BY SHATTERING DEATH’S GRIP AND THE WORLD’S LIE THAT TRYS TO LIFT ITSELF UP ABOVE GOD. LIFE SHOWED ITS DOMINION AND POWER OVER DEATH AND DARKNESS PROVING THEIR EMPTINESS AND INABILITY TO POSSESS WHAT BELONGS TO GOD . . . JESUS BEING the entirety of God in ALL LIFE RECONCILED WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT –GOD. JESUS RENDERED THE ENTIRETY OF ALL OF EXISTENCE OF LIFE ITSELF TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY BACK TO GOD. Yahshua Ha Moshiach, Jesus the Christ, our Messiah SURRENDERED LIFE ITSELF “HIMSELF” HIS HEART AND SOUL TOTALLY BACK TO GOD . . . THROUGH HIS SURRENDER BY OF Himself involving all of existence . . .“ LIFE” .
GOD Himself PROVED LIFE’S HIGHEST WORTH AND VALUE EQUAL WITH GOD!
“IT IS ALL YOU GOD”, AND GOD DECLARES “ MINE ” TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE !
20 Everything in heaven and on earth can come NOW CLOSE to God because of Christ’s SURRENDERING ALL EXISTENCE BACK TO God in death on the cross. HE GAVE EVERYTHING, ALL OF HIMSELF, the beginning of LIFE ITSELF ,DEMONSTRATING THE HIGHEST VALUE AND WORTH OF HIMSELF and showed ALL OF LIFE BELONGING ALONE TO THE CLOSENESS OF GOD AND THAT YAHSHUAH JESUS IS THE EXACT IMAGE AND CLOSENESS TO GOD.
DO YOU BELIEVE?
Jesus is Yahshuah , IS “God’s Salvation” and He is the LIFE of all things. The giving of His LIFE proved the highest value and worth and most significant elevation and importance placed on LIFE . . . THAT all LIFE BELONGS TO WHO GOD IS . . . and is ALL ABOUT GOD HIMSELF. . . REVEALED IN JESUS, THE PERSONIFICATION OF GOD AND IS GOD . . . it is God’s very PRECIOUS SELFAND HIS EXTREME POWER AND GLORY EXPRESSED THROUGH HIS MOST TREASURED POSSESSION . . . HIS LIFE IN US THROUGH His BELOVED only begotten Son. All of creation SO freely given all, to you and me, IS God’s wonderful Eternal Life and Existence, His very breath, LIFE! (without which , nothing would exist ). The giving of LIFE is the highest love, THE HIGHEST WORTH. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT UNDERSTANDING not OF our own, but is all of God. TO SEE AND KNOW GOD IS TO EMBRACE AND BECOME ONE WITH GOD,HIS LIFE, His Yahshuah Ha Moshiach, His Salvation. (TO DIE FOR) THE HIGHEST LOVE, ALL OF GOD ! TO BE WHERE GOD IS.
III. JESUS SAID, “I IN YOU ,YOU IN ME and US in the FATHER !”
Christ’s blood has made peace with God THROUGH THE EXPRESSION OF THE HIGHEST WORTH AND VALUE “GOD HIMSELF” MAKING everything in heaven and earth—back to its original intent, restored to innocence again, back to Himself! By His (God’s) VERY LIFE Given to us the highest PROOF OF LOVE’S VALUE AND WORTH THROUGH GOD GIVING HIMSELF THE HIGHEST HONOR AND GLORY ‘receiving wholly His Only begotten SON’ back to Himself AND MIRACULOUSLY ALL OF EXISTENCE WITH HIM. Now there is nothing between you and Father God, for He sees you as holy, flawless, and restored.”THE SAME as Jesus. 21 At one time you were strangers to God and your minds were INDIFFERENT and at war with Him. Your thoughts and actions were wrong and misdirected.
22 But Christ has brought you back to God by His death on the cross. In this way, Christ can bring you to God, holy and pure and without blame, beyond reproach, by His declaration that all is God’s LIFE. 23 This is for you AND ALL by SEEING THE TRUTH . . . WE ARE HIS !
By becoming one with His LIFE you keep the faith, AFFIRMING THAT You ARE THE SAME WITH HIM, His LIFE, SOMETHING SO WONDERFUL, SO VALUABLE, WORTH SO MUCH IT CAN NOT, ever change. IT IS ETERNAL. THE HOPE OF LIFE, EVERLASTING EXISTENCE . WHAT YOU HAVE received IS THE GOOD NEWS OF SALVATION FOR you and to all the world. And I, Paul, am one of Christ’s missionaries TO TELL YOU. God is all and I am one with Him, AND SO ARE YOU.
IV. 24 Now I am full of joy to be suffering; to undergo THIS TRANSFORMATION , experience AND all action, process, and condition: to suffer and promote the amazing change for all, to accomplish the great endeavor of achieving that something so great and wonderful , TO BE WHERE GOD IS, so valuable and worth so much (having perseverance ENDURING ALL TO GIVE THE TRUTH to you) especially for you, and my family. In my own body I am revealing the miracle of what Christ has done to make Christ’s accomplishment (God’s SALVATION FOR EVERYONE ) completely evident.
(THAT ALL WILL SEE AND KNOW THE FULLNESS OF GOD IN THEM ). This is for all of His body which is (THE KINGDOM OF GOD).
25 I became a preacher in His KINGDOM for your good. In the plan of God I am to preach the Good News. 26 This great secret that was hidden to the people of times past, but it is now made known to those who belong to Christ. 27 God wants these great riches of the hidden truth to be made known to ALL people . The secret is this: Christ in you brings hope of all the great things to come and attaining all the wealth that comes from the fullness of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is YAHSHUAH Jesus Himself, in Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge- LIFE ITSELF ! 28 We preach Christ. We tell every man how he must live. We use wisdom in teaching every man. We do this so every man will be complete in Christ. 29 This is the reason I am working. God’s great power is working in me. . . AND LIKEWISE IN YOU !

V. Mark 16 The Passion Translation (TPT)
14 Then Jesus appeared[e] before the eleven apostles as they were eating a meal. He corrected them for having such hard, unbelieving hearts because they did not believe those who saw him after his resurrection.
15 And he said to them, “As you go into all the world, preach openly the wonderful news of the gospel to the entire human race! 16 Whoever believes the good news and is baptized will be saved, and whoever does not believe the good news will be condemned. 17 And these miracle signs will accompany those who believe: They will drive out demons in the power of my name. They will speak in tongues. 18 They will be supernaturally protected from snakes and from drinking anything poisonous.[f] And they will lay hands on the sick and heal them.”
19 After saying these things, Jesus (THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE) (ALL OF LIFE ) was lifted up into heaven and sat down at the place of honor at the right hand of God! 20 And the apostles went out announcing the good news everywhere, as the Lord himself consistently worked with them, validating the message they preached with miracle-signs that accompanied them!
The sufferings (the fulfillment ) of Christ was complete, sufficient to transfer righteousness and forgiveness to
(ALL OF LIFE) TRANSLATED TO every believer
(JUST SEE AND KNOW ) !
Jesus said, “I AM THE WAY , THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE”,
