Dear Brethren:

My name is Charles Burke a retired minister of the New Testament Church of Christ Let me Scripturally Illustrate the true greatness of our own Creation and Redemption of life, and the real reasons why we have been Created and Redeemed because that knowledge will help us, “To live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world”. (Titus 2:12) Therefore, all the Scriptures which will be used in this article will be taken from the King James Version of the Bible. For instance:

THIS IS THE GREATNESS OF OUR OWN CREATION OF LIFE

Our own Created Nature of life is great because we have been Created by Three Equal Spiritual Persons who are made to be called God in being the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit concerning our own Creation of life so that in this life They can make us to become like (similar to) Them, but in our heavenly home They can make us to become Equal with Them in Personage, Nature, Powers, and the Attributes of life. The Bible says, "For there are three (Persons that bear record in heaven of our own Creation of life), and their Personal Names are called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit and these three (Persons) are One”, i. e. Equal in power, rule, and authority because they equally possess the Same Divine Personage, Powers, Nature and Attributes of the One and only God in Their own Individual Being of life. 1 John 5:7)

THIS IS THE GREATNESS OF OUR OWN REDEMPTION OF LIFE

Our own Redeemed Nature of life is great because we in being a New Testament Christian have been Redeemed by Three Equal Divine Persons who are made to be called Christ in being the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit regarding our own Redemption of life so that in this life They can make us to become like (similar to) Them, but in our heavenly home They can make us to become Equal with Them in Power, Rule, and Authority. This why our Lord said, "Go teach all nations, baptizing them (into Christ by baptizing them) in the name (which means by the authority) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" so that the Alien Sinner can be saved from his past sins by obeying the gospel of Christ. (Matt. 28:18-20) 

THIS IS WHY WE HAVE BEEN CREATED AND REDEEMED

1. Now, we have been Created by Three Equal Spiritual Persons who are made to be called God in being the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit concerning our own Creation of life so that in our heavenly home They can make us to become Equal with Them in Personage, Nature, Powers, and Attributes of life.

2. Furthermore, we in being a New Testament Christian have been Redeemed by Three Equal Spiritual Persons who are made to be called Christ in being the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit regarding our own Redemption of life so that in our heavenly home They can make us to become Equal with Them in Power, Rule, and Authority. For illustration purposes:

THE SUMMARY

1. A Ranked Hierarchy can not Scripturally Rule in heaven above, nor in the Religious World below because the Father is not the Superior Person of God, and the Word (the Person who was made to be the only Begotten Son of God by being born of the Virgin Mary upon the earth) is not the Lesser Person of God, and the Holy Spirit is not the Least Person of God.

2. A Ranked Hierarchy can not Scripturally Rule in heaven above, nor in the Sectarian World below because we have been Created and Redeemed by Three Equal Spiritual Persons who are called God and Christ in being our Creator and Redeemer so that in our heavenly home They will make us to become Equal with Them in Personage, Nature, Powers, and the Attributes of life.

THE CONCLUSION

1. Unless we learn and believe that we have been Created and Redeemed by Three Equal Spiritual Persons who are made to be called the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit in being our Creator, and who are made to be called the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in being our Redeemer so that in our heavenly home They will make us to become Equal with Them in Personage, Powers, Nature, and the Attributes of life there is no way that we can understand the greatness of our own Creation and Redemption of life.

 2. Unless we learn and believe that we have been Created and Redeemed by Three Equal Spiritual Persons who are made to be called God and Christ in being our Creator and Redeemed so that in our heavenly home They will make us to become Equal with Them in Powers, Rule, and Authority there is no way by which we can understand the real reasons why we have been Created and Redeemed. .

3. Therefore, if we really refuse to learn and believe the true greatness of our own Creation and Redemption of life, and the real reasons why we have been Created and Redeemed there would be no way by which we could have the popper understanding of our own Creation and Redemption of life.
