Man’s past, present, and eternity

Apostle Tracey Robinson

St John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
• The Word of God in Spirit and in Truth promises the soul and spirit of man spiritual knowledge and a fuller revelation knowledge of who he is and whose he is if he abides in Christ and continue in His Word, then he is His disciples indeed to becoming a son of God.
• The Word of God is spiritual. The Word of God is God. God is spirit.
• Man’s action and reactions to the Word of God is natural, carnal, evil, wicked, and acceptable from the state of his old nature of sin.
• Man’s interpretation, comprehension, and understanding of the Word of God is natural and carnal and is filtered through his flesh, its nature, and its understanding in the knowledge of good and evil, influenced by his 5-sense knowledge.
• This is due to man being spiritually unconscious, that is being born spiritually dead to and toward the things of God and His Will.
• This also causes man to gain a knowledge of God from a vain and deceitful imagination, with a familiar spirit that imitates a tradition of man in his state of peril.
• The purpose and intent of this message is for the spirit man in you to be awakened to the truth, the things of God, and to die to your carnal nature and its use through the world, your flesh, and the devil in order to see and experience the true righteousness of God in Spirit and in truth.
• The spirit man in you has a past, present, and eternal life span.
• Your past is contrasted with and defined by your present and your eternity.

Man’s Past
• Past means gone by in time and no longer exists.
• James 4:13-15 13 Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord Will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
• For man to live daily, he lives in his past from his past before Christ by retelling and reliving his life story, as it gathers more details throughout his time spanned on earth. This is how we try to live even as new creatures in Christ according to our past life.
• Our past had no knowledge of God’s righteousness because we were born in sin, ignorant, and shaped in iniquity.
• Romans 10:3 For they, being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
• Man’s past is full of morally good and evil, times of peril, victimization, rejections, loss, disappointments, disparity, allegiance to other gods, selfishness, disobedient, self-centered, lovers of themselves, etc.
• His past is shown more vividly in and through all his wrongness against God and His truth.
• We were born in sin, spiritually unconscious, spiritually blind, and dull of hearing the Word of God.
• The past of mankind is all he has without Christ Jesus and His redemption through a born-again encounter and experience as a new creature in Him.
• The spirit man past in you is living a natural life as a human being.
• Life span is the length of time for which a person or animal lives or a thing functions.
• Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
• Psalm 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
• A score is 20 years. Three score is 60 years and 10 is 70 years; and if by reason of strength 80 years.
• Psalm 90:4 KJV Amplified For a thousand years in Your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.
• 2 Peter 3:8 Nevertheless, do not let this one fact escape you, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day.
• God is not in time, man is!

Man’s Present
• Present means current; existing or occurring now.
• We as born-again new creatures must come into the knowledge that we are spirit beings encased in a body having human experiences. To know this is to have a clear, concise knowledge of who God is to you, in you, and for you.
• Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou has rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to Me: seeing thou has forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
• Our lack of knowledge of God causes us to choose foolishness and folly over wisdom and understanding.
• Our lack of knowledge of God causes us to not be a priest (male and female) to God. Why? Because of our unfaithfulness to God and toward the Will of God.
• The essence of becoming a priest to God and their work is to be invited in the presence of God, in His Kingdom, and enjoy the hospitality of God being served to you.
• Being invited into His Holy of Holies, the Throne Room of God Himself.
• Adam and Eve were once priest commissioned to work, keep, and maintain the Garden of God.
• Are we priest today commissioned to work, to keep, and maintain the Harvest of God?
• Working in God’s House tells you a lot about the citizens or residents of His House that brings every detailed feature and attention of God in them through Jesus Christ.
• The spirit man once awakened in you is present and eternal (eternity). He has no past!
• Once awakened his understanding is no longer darkened and is no longer alienated from a life with God through His Son Jesus.
• 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
• Our present is revealed when we accept the Will of God through His plan of Salvation.
• As spirit beings we must catch up to where the Word is in order to manifest what God has already spoken, revealed, and made known.

• Future is used to refer to what will happen to someone or something “in time to come”.
• Tomorrow is not promised so how can you have a future.
• Proverbs 27:1 Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
• The future of man is hidden, Ecclesiastes 8:7 For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?
• Future is hidden from man due to human weakness; ignorance; inability to apprehend truth, St John 13:7; earthly limitations, 1 Corinthians 13:12; Slow progression in the revelation of the divine plan, Ephesians 3:5; full of danger and risk (perilous), Genesis 2:17; knowledge withheld to give opportunity for faith, 1 John 3:2.
• Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.
• The ignorance of man life and shortness of time limits knowledge, Job 8:9 (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)
• Proverbs 19:21 KJV Amplified Many plans are in a man’s mind, but it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand.
• The future is best described as man’s present!
• Man’s future becomes his eternity.
• Man’s past and present will bring him to his judged eternity, not future.
• Once we expire on earth we have no knowledge of any earthly life, means, or doings.
• The body goes back to the dust.
• Your soul is judged by God.
• Your spirit returns to God.
• Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
• Your flesh will die through this process called death, but its nature is spirit, evil, and wicked.
• If in Christ, your flesh and its sinful nature is crucified and dies before natural death occurs.
• Ephesians 1:4-5 is future for God because He has already done this for mankind. For each generation born this word becomes our present in Him. God’s original intent!
4 According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of His Will,
6 To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Eternal life
• Eternal life describes Salvation that God bestows on those who trust and serve Him while on earth.
• Eternity is time after death, expiration, infinite or unending time.
• Your soul is eternal and will never die, but will be judged by the Word of God lived and obeyed while in earth.
• 1 Corinthians 15:49-54 49 And we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly, 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
• In other words, God has won your soul over Satan and all his temptations and influences.

In closing,
• When man chooses to be left in his sin he is still separated from God and His presence. This is your present!
• Choice begins with your present.
• Man is ushered into his present when he has heard the Word of God, which awakens his soul to the Word of God, causing the new creature to have to choose to live according to God’s persistent love for him through the move of redemption and forgiveness already completed through Christ Jesus.
• Only through Christ will God, His Holiness, and His Righteousness come near you as He spiritually attracts you and draws you to Himself. He must see Jesus, not you and your Will!
• Ephesians 1:7-9 7 In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace; 8 Wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 9 Having made known unto us the mystery of His Will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself:
• In man’s present of hearing the Word of God he will develop a habit and a practice of confessing his sins to God in his prayers through his awareness of his need for a Savior.
• Our life story of the past filtering into our present as a new creature is designed to keep the past as an essential part of our born-again life by trying to keep you so busy to the point of being distracted and lose focus of your present state in Christ.
Ephesians 1:9-14 Read scripture.
• God’s plans in you is to restore His justice, His beauty, and the joy of His majesty overshadowing His perfect creation man.
• When Jesus comes in our hearts, mind, Will, emotions, and body we have been bought with the price of Christ Jesus’ love for God through His Blood He has reclaimed God’s project in man through love and its action.
• In Salvation when Jesus comes into man’s life his life is suddenly jammed with purpose. We now have hope, faith, and love to strengthen us in our present. These will enable us as new creatures in Christ to be strengthen through the hardships (hardness), hard work, travailing, the labor in being transformed in Christ to become as a Son in the everyday life and lifestyle ahead.
• This is eternity being set and unfolding in us as God’s labor is coming to His close.
• When God’s work is completed in us, we expire. This is God’s work and Will to do.
• When God chooses to end His work in us, we will be taken out of the earth by God.
• We choose the avenue of transport by how we live and serve the Will of God in earth.
• When God’s work in us is complete and afterwards comes our judgment. This is eternity for our soul beginning.
• Romans 6:23 is our payday that God Wills. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
• Wages for a sinful life or wages for a spiritual life in Christ is your choice.
• As long as we have flesh we will go through, especially when your flesh is not crucified.
