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.

Current Sufferings

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Romans chapter 8:

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 

Believers will go through sufferings of this present time and we must acknowledge this reality in our own lives.  Some people run away from suffering and believe it or not, some people run toward suffering in some manner.  We should simply walk the path FATHER has placed us on and deal with those sufferings as they arise.

Our trust and hope is in the glory yet to be revealed by FATHER and we should be at peace however and whenever this occurs.  Paul reveals to us The Comforter is here for our individual benefit as he wrote in:

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 

27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
We will all go through periods of weakness, but we are not alone.  

The Holy Spirit is here to minister to each of us on an individual and unique basis.  There is no broad formula to deal with my weakness thus I need The Holy Spirit inside me to lead, direct, and comfort me as I deal with life’s issues.  As I pray in THE SPIRIT, my prayers are received from FATHER with the pureness of THE SPIRIT.  My ego is not involved so I am not constrained in any manner.

Just as The Holy Spirit hovered Lovingly over the earth to bring forth FATHER’S Divine Intent, let The Holy Spirit “hover” over each of us to do the same.  What is the result?

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Amen!

Betrayal

This article provides perspective on what it is like when the revelation of Love is missing:

Comprehending Light

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in John chapter 1:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

He was in the beginning with God. 

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 

And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Everything FATHER does and says promotes life.  Without light how could we see HIS plan?  Without Love how could we comprehend the choice to live in light or darkness?  Without the witness of creation, how would we know to seek a higher power?

John was the greatest of prophets for he was chosen to bear witness of the Light Who is Our Lord Jesus Christ.  All legal requirements were met for him to fulfill his calling yet the legal experts of the day could not comprehend such a calling.  Darkness prevailed in their lives thus FATHER found it necessary to open the eyes of John by showing him the light.

By its very nature darkness cannot comprehend light for when light comes it dissipates the dark quickly and effectively.  We must allow the Word to cleanse us on a daily basis so that darkness will not enter in.  Compromise must not be allowed to take root for it will choke out the newly planted Word already in us.

We cannot minister the revelation of Christ to those in the darkness by giving our opinion established by logical means.  We must speak the WORD where the power lies.  As people respond to the light, their eyes will open and then they will exclaim how “self-evident” the Truth is.  They will toss out evolution as the means for the current animal and plant kingdoms to come forth in their current state.  The will begin to see the fingerprints of the Creator’s intelligent design found in all areas of life.  It is only a question of “when” not “if”.

As you and I further comprehend the Spiritual Kingdom we will be given appropriate revelation to share with others.  I am fully convinced that this will occur suddenly around the world among those who have been chosen in a manner similar to John the Baptist.  The intensity of our current trials is an indication to me of the intensity of the ministry we are called to be a part of in the coming age.

You will see a sudden lack of interest in the trappings of this world.  The emptiness of the current idol worship will be exposed for what it is- a facade.  Light will shine brightly on all aspects of life and the chaff will be removed.  Love will keep the anger and rage at bay for people will repent of their past actions and words.  The whole world will finally begin to comprehend the Light of the world.

 

 

 

Uncompromising Life

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

By THE SPIRIT it is written in Psalm 119:

How blessed are those whose way is blameless, 
Who walk in the law of the LORD.
How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, 
Who seek Him with all their heart.
They also do no unrighteousness; 
They walk in His ways.
You have ordained Your precepts, 
[fn]That we should keep them diligently.
Oh that my ways may be established 
To keep Your statutes!
Then I shall not be ashamed 
When I look upon all Your commandments.
I shall give thanks to You with uprightness of heart, 
When I learn Your righteous judgments.
I shall keep Your statutes; 
Do not forsake me utterly!

Truth cannot be compromised and remain the Truth.  Any deviation of the Truth brings forth unrighteousness and division.  This is why we need to know the Truth and It will set us free from the bondage of sin.  Wrapped in Truth is motivation of the particular Truth we convey to others.  This protects us from the “legalistic” use of Truth as we are meant to understand the fullness of Truth.

Jesus spoke Truth motivated by Love.  Knowing this we can correctly discern whether someone is fully disclosing the Truth from FATHER or withholding a portion to support their own agenda.  If a Word is given to us, we will have the peace to receive and embrace it or keep it at arm’s length until FATHER confirms it through another source.

We are warned against compromising the Truth we have been given.  As we keep the Truth in our hearts our ways become established because we are keeping HIS Law of Love where the source of Truth is found.

Do you support Truth or allow compromise to come forth in your midst?  There are times when we must clarify our stand so that the standard of Truth prevails in our circle of influence.  When we declare HIS Works in our life, let those declarations be accurate and uncompromising so they will be a true blessing to all.  Let no compromise be found among us.

Vacation

We will be most of this week for a little time off.

The Baptism

Monday, December 12th, 2016

In Luke it was recorded by THE SPIRIT in chapter 3:

21 When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened.

22 And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”

Jesus’ time of preparation was over and now He was ready to begin His ministry.  As Jesus prayed, the Heaven was opened thus we should pray to HIM as well.  Why Pray?  It is good for us to acknowledge our dependence on FATHER for our very life, our health, our daily bread, and our general welfare.  We should do so every day as THE HOLY SPIRIT leads us. We must remind ourselves that our life and happiness are a gift from FATHER WHO is merciful.  Though HE does not owe us anything, HE gives us everything. We should try to be the same way towards our fellow-men and grant favors freely. We should express our gratitude to FATHER not merely in words, but  by obeying His commands and living our daily life the way FATHER wants us to do, especially as it is all for our own good.  Jesus provides us with His perfect example.

Knowing that FATHER is good and that nothing is impossible for Him to do, we can go about our life with a deep sense of confidence and security. Even in times of distress we will not despair, knowing that in some way whatever happens to us is for our good for it may be a blessing in disguise. We do not like to suffer, so we pray to FATHER to help us out of our distress and grant us the good that is not hidden or disguised.

When we operate in our gifts, we should expect the Holy Spirit to actively operate on our behalf, move upon us, and move upon the situation at hand.  The Scripture was written by THE SPIRT and we should know that FATHER’S SPIRIT will provide the relevance to each passage applicable to our situation.  The Holy Spirit is the Perfect Interpreter of The Word.  Men would have you only focus on the facet they were given yet we must not limit ourselves to their narrow view.  FATHER’S Ability to impart HIS applicable Word is beyond man’s understanding.

FATHER was well pleased with Jesus before He began His public ministry.  This is another example of FATHER’S unconditional Love for us.  Some think they must jump through hoops to gain FATHER’S acceptance yet it was not required of Jesus, HIS first begotten Son.  Let us rest in FATHER’S Acceptance as well.

In John’s recording of the event in chapter 1:

32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him.

33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.

34 And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”

We must not disregard the importance of The Most Holy Spirit in our everyday lives.  Jesus did not begin His public ministry without The Holy Spirit and thus we should be sensitive to The Holy Spirit as well.    In Acts chapter 1 Jesus spoke:

5 “for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”

Our daily walk must not omit our awareness of The Holy Spirit in operation.  Jesus further revealed:

8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Receiving The Holy Spirit is associated with receiving power from Heaven.  The power is there but if we don’t access that power, It will be dormant in our lives.  Let us esteem the ministry of The Holy Spirit and be the conduit for THE SPIRIT to operate.
