Exchanging Gods
Col 1: 23-29
Col 3: 1-8 We “find the life of our own hand” (Isaiah) when we lean on our own understanding. When there are options, we ignore faith.
Children of disobedience are believers who have turned back to self. Most believers simply put the name of God on their flesh.
Romans 5: 10-13  v. 10 is the exchange of Gods. The only way is our death.
Romans 6:1  3 Graces in all men.  Covetousness is idolatry.

Seething blood
Matt 25  The Seven Woes  We are the Pharisees
2 Chronicles 24:17
Ecc 3:16  In the place of justice, wickedness is there. They slew righteous Zechariah and did not cover the blood. For 252 years the blood seethed.

Philippians 4:8
Things to think on: that which does not change with time or space; pure, not carnal; acceptable to God
Matt 6: 22 The eye is the lamp of the body
If your eye is evil (have work to do)
Our normal, carnal thoughts are not of God.
Living in the moment

Life is in the Blood
The virgin birth produces the blood of God in Mary’s womb.
All ancient cultures had a blood covenant.
Communion – we alive by his flesh and blood. God will act towards us as he would his own flesh because of the blood of Jesus.
Genesis 17: 5  God changed Abram’s name
Gen 32: 24 God changed Jacob’s name
That is the mystery of the blood, we have to come to the end of ourselves.

What does the blood mean?
Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we are related to God by blood; blood brothers.
Gen 15:7  Three of the animals were laid open so the blood could be seen. Covenants were made between 2 parties, in this case God alone cut the covenant.
Gal 3:6-  If we break one law, we’re guilty of the whole law.
Ends early, battery ran out.

The Basics of our Belief
Mark 8: 34 What does “deny self” mean?  A total denial of your existence, past, present, future. Total and complete abandonment of self, no longer pay attention to self.
John 3: 1-6 Born again
Matt 18: 1-4  Become as a little child, i.e. without self awareness
Matt 22: 36-40 Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, mind and thy neighbor as self. Living in community we can’t fake this.
Mark 11: 25-26 If we forgive, God can forgive us. If not, he cannot forgive us. Forgive from the heart, i.e. protect that person and their right to have done whatever evil they had done to us.
Matt 18: 35 Forgive from the heart.

1 Tim 2: 4
2 Peter 3: 9
The last enemy to be destroyed is human hope, just as the Jebusites are with us to this day. Jebusites represent hope. Human hope is idolatry.
David was first crowned king in Hebron, second crowned king in Judah, third time crowned king in Jerusalem.
First time crowned – we still had our idols.
Second time – when the idols common to all men are destroyed
Third time – when hope is destroyed, i.e. all our idolatry is destroyed
