Reaffirming Love

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 2:

 

5 But if anyone has caused grief, he has not grieved me, but all of you to some extent—not to be too severe. 

6 This punishment which was inflicted by the majority is sufficient for such a man, 

7 so that, on the contrary, you ought rather to forgive and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one be swallowed up with too much sorrow. 

8 Therefore I urge you to reaffirm your love to him. 

9 For to this end I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things. 

10 Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, 

11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.

 

Until people are fully immersed in Love, they will do something to grieve you and me.  There is a time to punish such actions but as Paul said, forgiveness and comfort are not to be withheld either.  When a member of a family has caused immense grief and fellowship is broken, the family must allow righteous judgment to come forth for corrective purposes.  However, we must allow Love to prevail and reassure the member that Love is greater than their actions which caused the grief in the first place.

 

As the saying goes, “We judge everyone else by their actions, but we judge ourselves by our intent.”  Each of us needs to be cautious about our views of others.  That is why we must always look at the fruit… including our own.  Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 7:

 

1 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 

2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 

3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 

4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 

5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

 

Let us walk and be led by The Holy Spirit when we are wronged by another.  Evoking judgment due to an obvious wrong may be necessary but let it be done in the view of restoration.  Love covers a multitude of sins as Our Elder Brother can attest to by His Blood.  Let us pursue a walk consistent with the high standard established by Our Heavenly Father which is based on Love.

Remain Steadfast

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Ephesians chapter 6:

 

 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

 

It is critical to notice the plural tense of the challenges sent to us by the wicked one.  Our faith will be tested often and will definitely be unexpected at times.  Our faith must become strong and constant in our life as we will be challenged from every direction.  Our goal is to remain constant and steady as these challenges confront us.

 

Trust in FATHER’S Word is our foundation for our steadfast faith.  This is accomplished on a daily basis of fellowshipping in HIS Word.  The less we fellowship with HIM, the more we are moved by those fiery darts, it is that simple.

 

The psalmist wrote by THE SPIRIT concerning rebellious Israel in chapter 78:

37 For their heart was not steadfast with Him,

Nor were they faithful in His covenant.

 

Let us learn by Israel’s mistakes for we have a better covenant.  Let us simply be faithful to that Covenant provided through Jesus Christ so that our heart will remain steadfast as those fiery darts attempt to derail us.  After such an attack, we will simply smile knowing that our faith is strong and our day was not ruined by the wicked one.

 

Let this be an encouragement to you.  There are those of us who are being challenged, and there are those of us who will be challenged.  Be of good cheer no matter what is thrown at you for FATHER Loves both you and me.  Nothing will derail that reality!

The Bond Of Perfection

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Colossians chapter 3:

 

12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 

13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 

14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.

 

As we mature in Christ, sin and lawlessness become more apparent in all areas.  FATHER’S Wisdom exposes the error in man’s ways and thought, to the point that the obvious answer is in plain sight yet the blindness is great.  We must put on tender mercies just as FATHER has when observing man’s actions and speech for we too were guilty in our own blindness.

 

Less mature believers act based on unsound doctrines taught to them in the past as we must not be critical of their misguided choices but instead be a light unto them.  This is how Love responds.

 

Fruitlessness causes the spiritual error to surface and requires correction.  If one is constantly dealing with some form of scarcity in an area of his or her life, something needs to change in order to resolve the scarcity.  The Word is the answer, not someone’s opinion or misguided teaching.  If one is walking in Love then simply repenting and moving on to the purity of the Word is the answer.  

 

Do not worry about the teacher of false doctrine or the false prophet.  FATHER will repay thus we don’t need to exact revenge or punishment for being misled.  We need to simply put on Love, speak It, and walk in It.  It is the bond of perfection.

Being Partakers

Saturday, June 23rd, 2018

My friend Paul who is My beloved brother in Christ, commented on yesterday’s post and mentioned 2 Peter chapter 1:

 

2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 

3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 

by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

 

FATHER wants us to be partakers of HIS Divine Nature thus HE gave us HIS HOLY SPIRIT to dwell in us to facilitate the manifestation.  As we partake of HIS Divine Nature, we will walk as Jesus walked.  We will be fruitful in Kingdom business and work with HIM to bring forth the Kingdom.  Peter continued by THE SPIRIT:

 

5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 

6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 

7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 

For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ

9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

 

As we walk in faith by Love, we will take on the qualities mentioned above and become fruitful in the knowledge of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Those who are not diligent will be shortsighted and eventually blind to what FATHER expects from us.  Diligence is a key to being a partaker of HIS Divine Nature.

 

Let us join together in this pursuit as the true Body of Christ.  His Body is made up of those who embrace the reality of being partakers of His Divine Nature and are able to function accordingly.  Jesus made it very clear as our example that we too can walk as He walked.  As He is, so are we!

 

 

On Our Behalf

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

By THE SPIRIT, it is written in Isaiah 52:

 

13 Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; 

He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.

14 Just as many were astonished at you,

So His visage was marred more than any man,

And His form more than the sons of men;

 

The above passage described Our Lord Jesus Christ and what He suffered on our behalf.  At the point in which we fully understand this act of Love, we will no longer be subject to sickness in our bodies.

 

Did He deserve to suffer this unbearable punishment?  Not in any way, but because of the Love of Our Heavenly Father for us, HE gave His Son who submitted His body for all the sicknesses and diseases of mankind.  Let us dwell in the revelation contained in this passage until it permeates every aspect of our being.

 

This passage describes reality, not theology or doctrine.  The adversary would like this passage to have never been written so that we would stand on it when we develop symptoms of a sickness or disease.  We need not suffer when Christ has already paid the price.  We are righteous through Him.  Peter understood this revelation as he wrote in 1 Peter chapter 2:

 

24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.

 

The Word heals us and recreates us so we should place preeminence in The Word when we confront sickness and disease.  FATHER’S Divine Intent is for us to live completely healthy just as we desire our children to live in the same manner.  HIS Love provided a means for us to overcome any obstacle in life if we will only place our priority in studying and meditating on HIS Message of Love.  In it are the solutions to all our problems if we will only believe and doubt not.  Once we have comprehended and responded to what He did on our behalf, we will surely want to convey this benefit to those who are also in need.

 

Jesus spoke in John chapter 15:

 

7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 

8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

 

Sickness and death are spiritual conditions manifested in a physical body.  When our spirits have been restored by HIS Word, our bodies will respond.  We must not allow unbelief to impede our restoration.

 

Men place their faith in the world’s answers to disease by taking medications.  Why not place our faith in FATHER’S long-term solution HE gave us through HIS Love for us!  Why not begin trusting HIM and HIS Word for our healing!  Am I telling you to quit taking your medicine?  No, FATHER will instruct you when you are ready to cease the medication.  In the meantime, begin dwelling and meditating on Christ’s sacrifice for us until you become fully immersed in HIS sacrifice on our behalf.  That Word will manifest in your body and then you will no longer have any need for man’s solutions.  Your doctor will be amazed at your recovery and you will have a glorious testimony to share with others.

Relying On HIS Word

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 1:

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

And the Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in John chapter 20:

30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book;

31 but these Words are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

And in Ezekiel 12, FATHER spoke:

25 For I am the LORD. I speak, and the word which I speak will come to pass; it will no more be postponed; for in your days, O rebellious house, I will say the word and perform it,” says the Lord GOD.’ ”

When FATHER speaks, we should listen and act accordingly.  Is there any other source able to compare with FATHER’S Word?  Absolutely not, yet many people express more faith in men who are so-called experts than the Word of GOD.  We have no issue in taking a pill that our doctor prescribes because we have faith in his education and experience.  Shouldn’t we have greater faith in The Word which has prevailed for thousands of years?  The Amplified version of Romans chapter 1 provides expresses more detail”":

17  For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith [disclosed in a way that awakens more faith]. As it is written and forever remains written, “The just and upright shall live by faith.”

In order for us to live a more productive life, we must grow our faith in the most reliable source- FATHER’S Word.  It is not enough to read the entire Bible once and call it good.  FATHER tells us how to live abundantly in Proverbs chapter 4:

20 ​​My son, give attention to my words; ​​Incline your ear to my sayings.

21 ​​Do not let them depart from your eyes; ​​Keep them in the midst of your heart;

22 ​​For they are life to those who find them, ​​And health to all their flesh.

23 ​​Keep your heart with all diligence, ​​For out of it spring the issues of life.

In this passage, we are given a specific mandate which is beyond a casual study of HIS Word.  FATHER expects us to act on HIS Word in order for us to live a blessed life.  In HIS Word are the solutions to every problem that we will face if only we will put HIS Word as the first priority in our life.  If we want an overcoming life, then we must set our priorities according to FATHER’S instructions.  This is not a casual request of a secondary nature, but a command by The ONE WHO Loves us and desires that no harm comes our way. 

Our Redeemer and Deliverer has given us the key to overcoming all of life’s obstacles but many have chosen to look to the world instead.  Let us repent and move into FATHER’S perfect Will and plan today.  Let us give the proper attention to HIS Words and incline our ears to HIS sayings.  Let us keep our heart with all diligence so that the life force originating from FATHER will flow out of it.  Let us place our full trust in HIS Word today and we will go from faith to greater faith.

Embrace The Fire

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

THE SPIRIT wrote in Hebrews chapter 12:

25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 

26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 

27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 

29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Those who trust in FATHER’S Love will get to the point of embracing HIS consuming fire in their lives.  Am I happy to live a life with dross anywhere in my being?  No, let every aspect of my life be subjected to HIS Loving, consuming fire which will remove anything from preventing full healing in every area of my existence.

When given the go ahead, FATHER will surgically use HIS fiery Word to expose and remove anything contrary to HIS Divine Intent of Love.
FATHER spoke to Joshua in chapter 1:

 8 “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 

9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

We are called to conquer our land (body) in similar fashion but it will take courage to purge our history, bias, incorrect thinking & teaching, etc.  Let each of us step up and be of good courage!

Power in The Word

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

One of the bigger challenges believers face is to embrace the Truth that FATHER’S Word contains the power within itself to cause itself to come to pass.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 1:

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Our faith will determine how much HIS Word will participate in our lives.  If we walk in unbelief then The Word will be of none effect in us.  However, if we develop our faith by hearing The Word, then the power will increase and there will be no resistance to HIS Word in any area of our life.  The more we walk in HIS Word, the more we become like HIM.  When FATHER speaks to us directly about a situation, we will respond according to HIS Word rather than our ego.
In Numbers chapter 23 it is written by THE SPIRIT:

19 “God is not a man, that He should lie,Nor a son of man, that He should repent.Has He said, and will He not do?Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

FATHER watches over HIS Word to perform it thus it does not take our intervention.  HE will “make it good”… thankfully.  The greatest testimony of the power in The Word is the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Paul speaks of all the witnesses to this event in 1 Corinthians chapter 15:

3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 

4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, 

5 and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. 

6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. 

7 After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. 

8 Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.

There were a multitude of witnesses to Jesus’ resurrection so that there can be no question of its authenticity.  This one event changed the course of human history and continues to change it this very day.

At a base level, we all rely on FATHER’S Word to keep the universe intact.  We only have to look up to observe the power of HIS Word.  If one studies the human body, the complexity is beyond man’s ability to replicate yet our bodies continue to operate and adapt to the surroundings which speaks to the Glory of Our Heavenly Father.

There is a power accessible to the mature sons and daughters of FATHER.  This power is motivated by Love and will change the world no matter what its current state.  Let us keep this in mind as we press in daily to receive the deeper revelations set aside for those who walk in FATHER’S Divine Intent.  Jesus is our perfect example.

Purity of The Word

Friday, January 19th, 2018

Paul wrote in Titus chapter 1 by THE SPIRIT:

15 To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. 16 They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.

We who are classified as “pure” believe and embrace all of FATHER’S Word rather than the flattering words of those who are defiled.  It is so important to be well-versed in The Word and have an understanding of FATHER’S Divine Intent.  When that is the case, we cannot be swayed from the purity of The Word.  If we have a pure heart, our thoughts will be pure.

Those who are impure will be known by their works even though they will attempt to take our focus away by rationalizing why their “word” did not come to pass.
Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 5:

8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

This Truth ought to be an incentive for any believer to purify the heart.  Jesus accepted the responsibility to minister to the wife (church) when Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Ephesians chapter 5:

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 

26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 

27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

FATHER’S Word will cleanse us of all unrighteousness as we read, study, and ponder it in our lives.  The Word itself is a purifier and will remove all spots and wrinkles.  None of us start our walk spotless but we rely on FATHER’S Word to bring forth the purity each of us desires.
