Awaken and Arise is about living Abundant Life in God's Resurrection Power by "grace, through faith, a gift of God not of works lest any man should boast." (John 10:10, Ephesians 2: 8, 9)
God spoke the world into existence and said, It is good." He made man in His own image, after His own likeness and said," It is very good." Does this look very good to you?
Can I hear a resounding, "hell no" people?
There is fighting and famine, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, disasters and calamities of various kinds more than ever. Terrorists, Isis, Al Qaida and Hammas are cutting heads off Americans, Christians, Jews, and others. These things are not good." (from page 17)
The book is written first to the traditional church in America of which I am a part. Abundant Life and the Resurrection Power of God that raised Christ from the dead, lives in us "earthen vessels."
Awaken and Arise is about our human nature being changed, transformed by God, into His (God's own) brand new nature, referred to in the scripture, "if any person is (in grafted) in Christ, the Messiah, he is ( a new creature altogether) a new creation; the old (previous moral and spiritual condition) is passed away. Behold the fresh and new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17
"For our sake He (God) made Christ (virtually) to be sin, Who knew no sin, so that in and through him (Christ) we might become the righteousness of God--what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him by His goodness." (2 Cor. 5:21)
We are transformed, by God, through the renewing of our mind. Our original human sin nature, becomes new, transformed into His, God's, righteous nature through, by and in Christ.
