God and Choice and Life or Death

Ellen K. Gordon defines this choice as an established, intangible mechanism at the core of our being, which our will for our lives through the spoken word of our mouths has activated. This choice is sometimes ignored and/or unrecognized; however, it is always present and available to us. Its purpose is to deliver us (our spirit man) into the hands of freedom, a place within us where we are always safe, where we are sane, and where we recognize the greatness that is within us through Christ Jesus, our Lord.


This is not the freedom of footloose, wild, and fancy free, but it is the freedom of kings and priests. This freedom enables our responsible right. We understand that God is responsible and the only right (Deut. 32:4), and only through Him can anyone obtain rights. No one has the right or God on his side to do anything unless it is through Him. This is the basis of truth. In John 8:31–32, Jesus said, “If you continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.


First, He instructs us to continue. We cannot pick up the Word of God and put it down with yet still the expectation of receiving what it says. Our continuance in the Word is the key to our forthcoming knowledge and revelation. Jesus said, “Then are ye my disciples indeed.” Disciples are disciplined ones that recognize the order of God and will themselves to carry it out. These orders carried out are the physical evidence of the disciplined spirits, willed from the soul (mind). This is the order of God. When your spirit (heart) is disciplined toward God, your soul wills your body to follow through.
