BookRev-9:- Trinity and How it explains Gospel - 1.
Trinity makes the understanding of Gospel rational and logical. Some examples shall be presented to introduce this concept and as you are aware, India has deep rooted standing in the field of religious knowledge. Therefore, some Panjabi and/or Urdu words shall be used to make the subject universal.
TYPES OF PEOPLE:- As you have noticed from the two kingdoms, there are seven types of people that we come across; four of the Royal Kingdom of God and three of the kingdom of Satan. They shall be best studied under the two kingdoms. Thus, under the Royal Kingdom of God comes:-
1. Once-born hylics or the people of flesh:- They are termed the "natural people" in the New Testament and in Panjabi, the once-born are called "IKEEJA". They are dominated by the "ego" called HAUMAE in Panjabi and KHUDDI in Urdu. Once the "ego" dominates, then "spirit" called SURTI in Panjabi has no place i.e. flesh is the enemy of spirit. Under "ego", they behave like the animals in which they shall love their own and hate the others but when a natural man is in the Royal Kingdom of God, then he does not hate others so much. These people give "alms" to the poor in the name of God and the widow's "mite" was the typical "alms" given to the Temple in the name of God not understanding that such contributions could be misused by the High Priest through lavish living. Pope and his accomplices live on such widow's or the poor people's mites. The hylics being simpletons are generally led by and are under the command of their religious heads such as the Rabbis, PANDITS or Mullahs. If the Rabbi, Pandit or Mullah is good God-fearing person, then he keeps his Disciples as a schoolmaster keeps his students (Disciples) disciplined. Like children, they cannot understand the things of spirit.
Typical example of such persons was Simon nicknamed by Jesus as "Peter", a stone. He was a man of flesh dominated by the child-like habits but of clean heart. He was not able to understand the matters of spirit or Gospel. For not grasping the Gospel by spirit, they are called "BAEMUKH" in Panjabi. Peter was much impressed by the miracles of Jesus and, therefore, he used to take Jesus for his Master and Lord. In the present concept of Christianity, they are called "Christians". They fear corporal punishment and it was under this fear that Peter denounced Jesus at the Trial.
So far they have conscience and work for the benefits of humanity, they are "holy". In brief, their religion or duty towards God is to speak the truth and abide by the moral laws of Moses. They are told to concentrate upon and believe in prayers. People perfect in the moral laws are called Angels and they are subject to sins, the transgression against the moral laws as King David committed sin by having sex with his officerâ€™s wife.
2. Twice-born doubting people of spirit:- They are the twice-born people of "spirit" and as God is "Spirit", they have the capacity of "perceiving" God as their Spiritual Father. Thus, to them Jesus is an anointed Elder Brother and not the Lord or Master but sometimes in appreciation of His Knowledge, they call Him a Master, a Great Spiritual Preacher. They do not display "ego" of flesh but exercise "Agape" among themselves and the community at large. For their belief that God is Omniscient, they do not believe in prayers or fasting but in doing "His Will" and leaving it to God. In Panjabi, the twice-born are called "DAWEEJA" and for their habit of listening to but doubting, they are called "SANMUKH". So far they do not become greedy and exploit the once-born simpletons, they are of the Royal Kingdom of God. Both Thomas and Judas Iscariot were of the doubting nature but Thomas being not greedy, he loved God. Gospel of Christ Thomas is very challenging such as â€œWhy should I fast what sin have I committed and why should I pray, what wrong have I done?â€
3. Twice-born firm believers:- They are the people of Holy spirit who build up their faith in God by putting "His Word" into practice. In Panjabi, they are called "DAWEEJA" and they do not follow the fashion of world but what pleases God. They are Virgins and led by their own Christs in their hearts are capable of preaching the Gospel with confidence and for doing so with the erring spirit of man, they are the Royal Priests or "christs". In Panjabi such "christs" are known as "GURMUKH" and they are led by "Holy ghost".
4. Saints:- They are
