Meat, Blood, Bones, and Death
Jesus of Nazareth raised a cup of wine and said, "This is the new testament of my blood which is shed for you."  The work of the new covenant is the work of God.

For 2000 years the new testament of Christ's blood has covered the Earth. For 2000 years God Himself has been offering a way out; a path of escape from the destruction and death of this old world.  The enlightenment and guidance required for the escape-action come to life in a Soul "not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts."  The entrance of God into the life of an unregenerate Soul compares to dawn following  darkness.  Anyone who has not seen a sunrise for awhile might forget the importance of such a sight:  silence, power, majesty, solitude.  The Soul yearns to know its place.  The body of flesh cringes in fear.

The Soul is an eternal life-form:  atomic flesh is not. The structure of atomic flesh is weakened by the supernatural curse of Death.    When Death comes to the flesh, the Soul departs from this familiar Earth.  What happens then?  Some folks convince themselves with the lie that says, "There is no God. There is no Soul.  There is only meat, and blood, bones, and death."  That lie may serve well for a short earthly lifetime but the truth always comes out.

Jesus of Nazareth says, "Without me you can do nothing."  He knows exactly what He's talking about.  Without God in Christ to enlighten the vision, the living Soul sees only what the flesh-eyes can see:  a troubled world of Death interspersed with brilliant flashes of glorious, utterly inexplicable Life.  A Soul in mortal flesh strives to find a meaning or a point to its existence in this Gargantuan Universe.  Without the leadership and enlightenment of God in His Christ-manifestation, existence not only seems pointless, it is pointless.

The new testament of Christ's blood is a supernatural covenant.  It is the covenant wherein and whereby almighty God Himself has bound Himself to bestow His unsparing enlightenment upon every living Soul who turns to Him in Spirit and in truth.  There are a billion-trillion different ways to die in this old world but there is one-and-only-one way to live:  "Not by might, not by power, by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts."

God our Father is the master Communicator who knows how to give beauty for ashes and make Life spring up where Death ruled only a moment before.  It is His good pleasure to do so.  Many people spend their lives on Earth working so hard to deny the undeniable truth of God.  Remember this:  there is nothing "religious" about God, His Christ, His Spirit.  God is God.   He needs no religion to be Himself.
