Wisdom from the Heart
Good afternoon everyone! I hope all is well with your souls, and if all is not well with your soul then I will tell you who to turn to so it can be, Jesus Christ our only LORD and Savior!
Today we are having a definition lesson. They are the definitions of the spirit of pride and all it's forms. Remember this is for me as much as it is for you. What I learn I pass on to you so all of us can benefit from our Lord.
Pride - Pride is a spirit that reflects our opinion of ourselves or others.
I am proud of my work, my strength, my wisdom, my accomplishments, my courage and I am proud of yours.
I am proud of my role as a sister, friend, co-worker, wife and mother.
I am proud of my children's work, their strength, and their wisdom as a brother or sister, friend, co-worker, wife, husband, and their views toward me being their parent. That is the up side of pride, and the lower side of pride is self-pity.
Self-pity examples: I am too evil for God to save me. My sins are too great for Him to forgive. I am to far gone for Him to bring me back. I am too sick for Him to heal. He is never going to forgive me. Where is my reward, and where is my blessings? When am I going to get something for all the good I have been doing? Why are all these bad things happening to me, doesn't He love me?
Daniel 4:37 Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise an exalt and glorify the King of Heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.
Vain - Vain is a spirit that reflects what we think others should see in us.
example: I think people should recognize what I do and who I am. I think people should see Christ in me.
I think they should recognize what I know.
How dare everyone ignore me, don't they know who I am. Don't they know I am the teacher, preacher, and a child of God, how dare they treat me this way!
Psalm 127:1-2 Unless the Lord builds the house, it's builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late toiling for food to eat-for he grants sleep for those he loves.
I hope this study of words helped you as much as it did me. May you and I grow and be blessed together through them as our Lord intends.
I usually do not put any prayers on my blog because I want people to come to their own prayer life in Christ as their Lord and Savior. He intercedes within each person with the words He gives them in each circumstance they face, or the world they live in is facing. It is Jesus that prays and intercedes through us by His Spirit, as our knowledge of Him grows through our relationship our prayer life through His grace grows.I pray silently for all of you in the deepest part of myself He gives me through His Spirit.
This prayer is for His children each time we suffer through a trail of any kind. His peace and love is always given to all through His presence in me, and I always pray for my readers, but today I posted this one because He asked me too for all of you. My hope is in Him that you receive it as His loving arms are being wrapped around you as His child and Him as your Heavenly Father.
Dear Heavenly Father, you know who belongs to you, and I pray
that all these people that read my blog know how deep and wide your love for them is through your Son Jesus Christ. Thank you for testing us in many ways
with trails of many kinds that reveal to us that our faith in you is real and
genuine. These trails are you disciplining us and makes us stronger in you to
prove your love for us as a good Father. No discipline seems pleasant at the
time, but painful.
Later on, however, we know it produces a harvest of
righteousness and peace for those of us that have been trained by it. Father, I am
praying for us to remain holding on to you during this trail knowing your joy, faith,and perseverance has to finish it's work so we may know the depth of your Spirit through your Son that continues to grow in us and takes us past our natural selves. The presence of you we have never experienced knowing at this depth
I want us to know during this trail the depth of your unending love, grace, mercy, and healing power we have never experienced before. I want us to be One with you Father as your Holy Son is with you, asking, and you answering us, giving us all we need to prove who you truly are. I pray that we will give you all the praise and glory
as our only good Heavenly Father deserves. I know you want to prove who you truly are in us at all times so our faith in you can grow past where it has been.
In the name of your First and last Holy Son Jesus Christ I pray, Amen!
If we are Christian’s our families take on a different
meaning to us as does everyone and everything else in the world. Jesus says
Pagans love pagans but God’s love has a different motivation given by His
Spirit and presents a whole different purpose than love between unbelievers. We
no longer look upon anyone one else worldly, but through God’s divine eyes of
saving grace, and wisdom. Our purpose in the world, and for the world takes on
His meaning, and our families should be the first ones we share his living
1 Timothy 5:8 If anyone does not provide for his relatives,
and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith, and is worse
than an unbeliever.
God gives us so many opportunities to pour out his living
water on others, but often we neglect the closest ones He is revealing to us
because we get wrapped up in our good works, accomplishments, church activities, and
socializing. We get the “I want to be seen” by others mind set, and soon we have to be
involved in everything, working harder and longer ours,and we neglect what is right in front of us without
realizing it. Our biological, adopted, step, or foster sons, daughters,
sisters, brothers, fathers, and mothers, should be our first priority when
sharing his living water in any need they may have spiritually, physically or
Matthew 6:1 “Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’
before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your
Father in heaven. So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets,
as the hypocrites do in the synagogues, and on the streets, to be honored by
men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let
your left hand know what your right hand is doing. So that you’re giving may be
in secret. Then you’re Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward
When we take on this mind set by faith in Him renewing the mind through His Spirit we begin
to get our priorities in order, delegating His work in the church properly, and
having “to be seen” in every work no longer has a hold on us. Our souls become freer
in His presence because we are receiving His reward, and the needs of our
family become more important to us as our faith grows deeper in Him giving us all we need, and not in ourselves.
We begin to receive more reward from His
blessings of grace, assurance, peace and joy along with our family’s life
growing closer to the Lord by his provision. You recognize your family have
become one of your first priorities of sharing His relationship with. Your
family has become your first “church” or body of believers that you want to
share his work in and through you with. You will not neglect any sharing of His
relationship with others because He will be giving you the time for all, in the
Sharing His peace and love always!
2 Timothy 11:13
Here is a trustworthy saying:
If we died with him, we also will live with him;
if we endure we will also reign with him;
If we disown him,he will disown us;
if we are faithless,
he will remain faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.
What makes God weep? What is the worst tragedy according to
The most tragic circumstance according to God is people
disowning, or denying Him and what He did through Jesus from birth to resurrection.
It is not us dying, not our sickness,
not our betrayal or hatred of one another. It is not our sexual immorality or
any other sin, and not our choices. All those things are going to happen, and
they happen to everyone. What makes God weep more than anything else?
It is us ignoring Him, and his act of love saving us from SIN
on the Cross. That is the greatest love ever given to human kind, and shared
through Him for human kind. He has called the world from the cross and many are
ignoring his message through his birth, life, crucifixion, and resurrection,
and when tragedy strikes we turn more away from him today than ever before.
God says if deny or disown Him He will deny or disown us.
What many are doing in the world today must really cause him to weep as He
looks upon his creation, much like Jesus when He approached Jerusalem as they
were praising Him as a human savior, and hours later they were praising one
another and denying Him as God the only Savior. Of course they did not
recognize his invitation then to God through the cross, but today we have no
excuse left in denying or disowning His blood, that cleanses us from all
ungodliness by His gift of grace and faith.
Luke 20:41 As he approached
Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, “If you, even you, had
only known on this day what would bring you peace-but now it is hidden from
your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment
against you, and encircle you and him you in on every side. They will dash you
to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one
stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s
coming to you.
Many today are turning to one another, ignoring their sin,
and not desiring to live Holy lives through the cross. His love cleansed people of sin, healed their
bodies spiritually, emotionally, and physically. He changed their spirit with
His indwelling Spirit. They all could see His truth, and His righteousness.
Many people are hating hatred today, and prejudices against
one another. They do good works, which is a form of godliness. At the same time
they are ignoring or denying God the Father and the Son through the Power He
gives people through the Holy Spirit by way of the cross that cleanses them from
all sin and ungodliness. Many are being deceived.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 But
mark this: There will be terrible times the last days. People will be
lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to
their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous,
without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited,
lovers of pleasure, rather than lovers of God-have a form of godliness but denying
its power. Have nothing to do with them.
Today we need to change the world through these tragic times,
and Jesus is weeping as He did in Jerusalem because when we go through a tragic
hardship we are not truly turning to Him as our Lord and Savior. We are not
seeking His righteousness that gives our body life and holiness. Many are
continuing to turn away from Him by being lovers of themselves, doing their
good works, and remaining in sin.
Today if you are going through a tragic time turn to Jesus, listen
to His truth through the message of the gospel, then speak His truth through
His Spirit and walk His life by giving your life to the Father. Let the Spirit
of God through the Son change you for His glory for ever and ever. Let Him give you His peace by answering His invitation
to God from the cross today!! That is the only true way you can be delivered perfectly
in these tragic times today is by way of the cross that will last for eternity!
Do not let God continue to weep because you are denying or ignoring Him and His
love He has for us only through His Son.
His peace and love always
Good day to all, grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am ready to comment on the horrible tragedy that happened in Orlando. I have been praying about it all week, and listening to many voices. My soul aches and reaches out for families, and friends of the injured and those that dyed. I have heard from Christians, moral people in America, LGBT communities, and some Muslim communities. They are many voices saying many different things about this tragic and horrible circumstance that happened in America.
I weep for all lost souls, and know that God's grace through receiving Jesus Christ is sufficient to save all people from sin, and I believe those who truly know Him know what sin is, the truth of His saving grace and His word through His life giving Spirit.
Those who do not know Him will always try to twist His word of truth to fit their life style. This goes for any person or any religion including "Christianity". The Spirit of God is plainly heard and understood through the Spirit of God. That is why we have been given the Spirit of God so we can understand his mind and thoughts through his Word clearly, with no confusion because his voice is the only one teaching us.
A line as been drawn in the sand, and I do not know all the answers that will bring our emigration laws to face this circumstance. I know we cannot let evil repay evil, only God's good through Christ can overcome evil, and a true change in a person and in a nation can take place. Many people in our nation will have to change to God's truth before our nation can change, and our nation changing is going to take years, but it can begin through the right arm of God which is Christ.
I know we need to defend our country from mass murderers but how we do that I do not know when part of their religion supports this act, they are proud to do it, and at the same time we support human rights "freedom of religion".
With our Father behind and in front of us through the Son by way of the Spirit there is a time to do all things on earth, and I believe it is time to throw away some lies we are living by, a time to keep His truth, a time to hate sin, a time for war so our nation can someday bring His peace to our nation. When I look back in our 200 year history we have not had a nation lead by God's truth and peace given through his Son for very long. We have not been a nation of unity as I look back in the history of America. It saddens me to say this but the truth is plainly seen through our history. It is not a peace like the world gives, it is a peace He Himself gives.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear, and time to mend,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war, and a time fore peace.
His peace, and His love, that changes any life, always!
Denying oneself, and having faith in the Spirit of God giving
a human being all they need to carry their cross daily can be recognized in a
human being in many ways. In small circumstances, and brief relationships we face
daily His work in and through us can be seen. They also can be witnessed in the more meaningful and deeper relationships
in our lives. He loves to prove his work
or lack of his work growing in humans through circumstances and relationships
humans face daily. His work can be seen changing someone in their daily conversations,
and in a person’s daily actions.
Matthew 13:11-12 He
replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given
to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an
abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.
There is two kinds of wisdom one is proved to live by through
their words, and actions. One is of the world, and one is from the Spirit of God
given to those who ask Him with the right motives. God knows our hearts and the motives that drive them. The wisdom of God that “Christians”
share should be done through humility, not out of selfish ambition, pride, or
through any malice or bitterness. The Holy Spirit teaches us our humility comes
from the Spirit through the wisdom of God, not from anything we attain on our
own by our own efforts but through the presence of God from submitting
ourselves to what God has clearly given us from the Cross.
James 3:13 Who is wise
and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in
the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish
ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom”
does not come down from Heaven but is earthly, nonspiritual, of the devil. For
where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every
When we find ourselves getting angry by having bitter
thoughts against someone they do not come from the Spirit of God they come from
a lie we covet, and we can’t have what we want. The Spirit lives only by God’s
truth and not the wisdom of the world or the deception of Satan. Your life will
be full of disorder, and evil practices when there is no full submission to
your rights to yourself to God. When some Christians ask today they do not ask
God with the right motives, and they will not receive any wisdom from Him for
that reason. God will not give a person any of his wisdom if they want to use
it for their own pleasures of boasting about themselves and others, and they
will continue living through the wisdom of the world until they submit all of
themselves to God. Some today do not even realized they are being deceived. A person’s
life will prove they are submitted to God when they have His complete peace, the
fruit of the Spirit, order, with no evil practices, and Him getting all glory
James 4:7 Submit yourselves,
then to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and
He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts,
you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and
your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
First we have to submit ourselves to the Spirits calling. We
will mourn, and face the gloom of our rebellion against Him, this is the
repented heart He gives us. Then we can resist the devil by His power and grace
as we continue to come near to Him in humility in Christ, He will come near to
us. We can then wash our hands through His power and grace given to us daily,
and our heart will be purified and renewed by His mind and wisdom only. We will
be lifted up past this world in Him now for eternity!
What Spirit and nature are you living by today, is your life
in disorder, are you lacking His peace, are you continuing to practice evil
desires from a prideful willful heart wanting to go your own way? If this is
you then submit to God for the right motives for only wanting Him for what He
can only give you from His relationship from the Cross, and He will give you
what you need to resist the devil, and lift you up to Him now past the world
for eternity. Your life will prove his life giving wisdom ways as you submit to Him. It will be a life that overcomes this world!
Good morning to all, grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Have you noticed there are so many different ways to have faith and to put your faith in? There are all kinds of philosophy's, sciences, and gods today that claim they can bring ourselves to a place where we know ourselves, make us right with ourselves, and God? From our growing technologies, and different ways science is learning about our human mind, emotions, addictions, and desires. The self-help philosophies, and our own natural faith in ourselves and other gods are getting spread faster and heard more these days then ever! This can cause so many to waver from their faith given by the One true God if they do not retain what He has clearly given them within themselves from His Spirit given to us from the Cross.
1 Samuel 7:3 And Samuel said to the whole house of Israel, "If you are returning to the LORD with all your hearts, then rid yourselves of the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths and commit yourselves to the LORD and serve him only, and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines. So the Israelites put away their Baals and Ashtoreths, and served the LORD only.
Many claim today Christianity came after many other religions, when our God, the God that created the Universe is the same God that Christ is, so his ways and thoughts were before the world began and other religions actually received some of their truths from Him, and they added other gods, and other beliefs to suit their own human needs. The Egyptian, the Hindu, the Buddha, and the Islamic faith have some of the One True God's wisdom entwined in it, not the other way around. The God of the Universe started His wisdom when time began and is lived out in Christ, and given to us within form the Cross.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, He was with God in the beginning.
v14 The Word become flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory of the One and Only (or the Only Begotten) who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
The God of Israel is the only true God that has been before time began, and He came to earth as His Word in the flesh of Christ being the same God that created the universe, he was with God in the beginning so Christianity truly has been around through God's wisdom since time began making it the oldest relationship with God, and the only true wisdom of the Universe.It is not a religion in the same sense the other religions are religions, it is what is given to us by God not what man can do, or what natural man has to believe in order to be right within himself. Salvation is the great through and plan of God's, and He planned it before the creation of the world. Christianity is what God did and what He gave man that made man right with himself, and right with God.
Ephesians 1:4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will- to the praise of his glorious grace,which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
To truly know this is true you have to receive Him, and to receive Him you have to be willing to get rid of all other gods, and to want to truly know Him as He truly is. Sad but true many are not willing to accept One God being their only God, and committing their whole mind, spirit and body only to Him being that God so He can deliver them, and mold them into their true image of his Son, and be that child they were created for.
It is within our human nature to be that "god" that saves ourselves and all other "religions" have their own human nature saving themselves in some way or form by their own works , "enlightenment" they find from their own power that gives them their own goodness to save themselves. I am going to briefly explain other religions and other gods in how they are different. Even though some are older than the "religion" of Christianity they are not proclaiming the same God of Christianity that is the God of Universe, and that is the God of Israel, Issac, and Jacob which is the only true God. You will see that Islam is the only religion that some claim to be the same God Christianity worships. Just because they use some of the same words out of the Holy Bible that does not mean they worship the same God. Christ is God, and Muhammed is not claimed to be God by Islam or Christianity so how could they be worshiping the same God? For the Christian (In Christ) the Old Testament God is the same as the New Testament God; He never changes!
Hinduism- A religion of India and Nepal, and it goes back about 3,500 years. To make it short they believe in reincarnation and all living things have a soul, and one must reach "moksha" which means salvation, or being "right" with God "Brahman". They can be reborn or reincarnated many times in different life forms before they reach this "moksha" state. Their karma is very important and their karma is determined by how they live their lives. In Hinduism there is no absolute good and evil so obtaining karma depends on how well individual fulfill social and ceremonial obligations. Good karma means in the next reincarnation you maybe reborn in a higher social class and ultimately attain "moksha. Bad karma means being reborn in a lower caste, or even as an animal. Thus killing an animal might be killing some dead relations.
Buddhism- Was founded by a man named Gautama, and there beliefs were written after his death After searching for answers about the suffering in the world he had what Buddhist call "the Enlightenment" was experienced around 530 B.C.in a time of meditation under a Bodhi tree, and he became "Buddha" the "enlightened one". He believed that he came to understand the answer to human suffering, expressing it in what he called the "Four Noble Truths". These are
1) Suffering is universal
2)The cause of suffering is desire or craving
3) The cure for suffering is to eliminate desire
4)Craving is eliminated by following the "Eight-fold Path"
The eight-fold path consists of
1)right view point
7)right mind fullness
Buddhism has no opinion that there is a God of any kind. This religion concerns itself with humanity and human dilemma rather than with God. Over time two main streams of Buddhism developed. The Theravada Buddhism of Sri Lanka, Burma, Cambodia and Thailand, which teaches that the Buddha was and enlightened man who through self-effort taught others to reach "nirvana" through monastic withdrawal and practice of its disciplines.
The other stream is Mahayana Buddhism, which view Buddha and Bodhisattavas (future
Buddhas) as a divine beings who can save if one has faith in them.
I truly believe Gautama was given this enlightenment by the God of the universe, the God of Israel through meditation but Gautama being a man clearly made himself this "god" they were to worship and said his enlightenment came from his own human nature, and all who follow these "enlightenment's" he came up with could find their true inner being and be overseer of their souls that brings them to experiencing this "enlightenment" for eternity through their undying human spirits.
Islam - The Islamic faith was founded by Muhammed, in A.D. 570. He claimed he received a revelation from God from the angel Gabriel concerning one God, "Allah" (meaning one God) and his command to submit to him. By the time of his death in A.D. 632, Muslim armies conquered most of the Middle East, North Africa and Spain. Today, Islam is divided into two main followers, the Sunni and Shiah. There are six doctrines every Muslim (follower of Islam) must believe in
1) God is one. He is absolutely transcendent and unknowable, yet somehow personal. He is compassionate and merciful, becomes angry and can seem arbitrary. He is the almighty creator and has planned everything according to his will and purpose.
2) Angels and jinn (supernatural beings who influence human affairs)
3) God's prophets and messengers. Prophets are distinct from messengers in that they brought a book from God. Muhammed is the greatest and last of the prophets because he brought he book called the Qu'ran (or Koran). No new prophet will appear after him.
4)The Books of God. These include the Jewish Torah, David's Psalms, the New Testament and the Qu'ran. All four are revelations from God, but each replaces the previous one. The Qu'ran is the last and therefore the final and best word from God.
5)Judgment Day when all will be judged according to their works. Sin is moral, social and ceremonial. It's seen as a weakness in humans, not the same in the Holy Christian Bible which proclaims a complete moral corruption making humans unable to please God by thier own efforts. If the Islam have done sufficient good works through their religious duties they may enter a sensual Paradise. Those who haven't are thrown into a hell of fire.
6) Inch'allah- the will of God God is absolutely sovereign and whatever he decrees must come to pass. Humanity's task is simply to submit to God's will.
There are also five practices ("Pillars") every Muslim should perform:
1) Shahada, the central confession of faith: "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammed is his apostle."
2) Daily prayer with the Muslim community:five time for the Sunnis, three times for the Shiahs.
3) Giving alms-about 2 1/2 percent of income
4)Dawn-to-dusk fasting for the month of Ramadan (with feasting after sundown).
5) The Haj or pilgrimage to Mecca, which all Muslims should make a least once.
Some scholars add a sixth practice:
6) Jihad, or struggle. This can include proselytizing which means to convert or recruit to a religion, belief or party. Every Muslim is bound to do everything possible to defend or advance the cause of Islam. In Islam there is no concept of "church and state" separation, because there's no diction between secular and sacred. Islam is a whole way of life.
With Christianity a person gives their bodies, souls, and spirit to God so He can save them by his purifying presence through the cross by the gift of His Son living in us that makes us right with God by the faith He gives us. When the power of God takes hold of a person through the freely given message of the cross, and God is freely received from the person, that person's faith comes by no effort of their own because all is given to that person by God, and each person is willing to receive what ever God is willing to give of himself. Jesus freely gave His faith to people as he walked the earth some accepted it and others did not. He actually gives a person their belief by what He gives them of Himself. Faith comes as the message from the presence of Christ is heard. When God comes into your heart it is very hard not to give all of yourself to Him, His grace should have that kind of effect on all his children. He is God and His presence within a person should change a person! But not all want a "God" to be over them so they see him differently.
A person does not know when He will come or how He comes, He is real and each person he comes into experiences their rebirth, and the person is willing to submit all or not of themselves to Him, and the union begins only if the person is willing to submit. God does not force Him, but He will never be far from each one of us. If the person does submit, accept or surrenders their body, mind and soul that person will be in God's will and presence guiding them by His presence as they continue to surrender all to Him. This life is proven by them changing supernaturally with God's signs, miracles and wonders within themselves, and through their lives so others will be drawn to Him. No one can deny this happening within themselves, nor can those around them deny these miracles, signs and wonders happening within and through that person His presence is revealing. This is why we know Jesus is the Only One and Way to the Father.
It is His Holy work, and power of His righteousness that saves us and creates in us our true selves, our human nature is willing to crucified and we receive his resurrected power and New Birth in Us. We do not create our new birth, or are we reincarnated into another creature until we do the right works that pleases Him. There is no human effort a Christian can do within themselves that can save them to be right with God. What a human does when God comes to him is to submit to Him as their Lord and Savior by the presence He has revealed. He has called all humans to come to the cross by what He did for all at the cross, but not all will come because other gods of this world including themselves have their minds blocked, or they have not heard the true message from the cross.
The covenant is between Christ IN us, and God and that covenant cannot be broken by God, because it is between God and His Son Jesus which is God's Spirit within a human making them One as they are One with one another. We can break that covenant by following, and having faith in other gods, philosophies, sciences, and ourselves being that "god" as Muhammad, Buddha, and the Hindu's have done but it will cost us everything He has given us.
This is why Christianity is different and so powerfully true because of His power, miracles, and wonders he gives each child that truly is His through the cross if they keep the faith and love they first receive from the beginning; their lives will prove His growing, and powerful Holy presence that heals them physically, spiritually, and emotionally. If one looses their faith in Christ and the love He can only give for the Father, one can always repent and begin again, and you will know by His Spirit if He has forgiven you and given you repentance. Godly sorrow always leads to repentance, no Godly sorrow, no repentance. His Spirit will always keep you cleansed with HIS forgiveness as you live a life of repentance doing His will and not your own. It is a freely given and received relationship that is REAL, and His compassion, and forgiveness we do not have to "work for" but we do have to surrender to, and live by with His presence guiding us, and molding us as our relationship grows into his own child reborn by His presence. We will become His wine glass to pour out of.
The reason God gave me this message for all of us today is because He wants to remind us that all these other gods, philosophies, sciences, and people beleiving in them are bound to come, and the more we understand how they believe gives us a way to communicate more about what they need and understand from the Cross out of love and the salvation of their souls. Knowing also gives us the knowledge of why we don't need to be yoked with these other gods, philosophies, sciences, and people that continue these beliefs.
There are false prophets in every religion even in "Christianity" claiming their the "true" church making their denomination a cult, or making their "body" of believers the only church. There are many going a way that seams right to them but we know by His Spirit testing other spirits in us, and through us, we or they, are headed in the wrong direction. If we submit, surrender or accept Christ at the Cross from what our Father gives us of His presence we will rid ourselves of all other gods, idols, and wisdom so we can keep hold of what has taken hold of us; His presence! Do not be deceived by other gods, yourself or the world like the Israelites were many times, and may are today. Let us learn what to do by what they did not do. Thy did not have what we have! We have God through Christ that keeps us holding on! We will serve Him only and He will always deliver us from what is not Him within us, and from the evil of this world into his arms today through His Spirit of truth, and we will be with Him for eternity. We all can become God's reborn children through Christ, and stay by what He gives us of Himself.
Building friendships with all cultures and races can enable us to speak the truth of His word dwelling in us without arguing, but some will continue not to believe. We also have the prayer of a righteous man through the Spirit of Christ knowing it is powerful and effective when that person does not accept his truth (James 5:16) There are millions of individuals in our world who are walking in the darkness of these religions, worshiping and believing in other gods, and philosophies as well as others not mentioned here. Let's pray for Laborers to go into these vast harvest fields-and let's be willing to reach out with the Good News of the Cross, and let Him speak through us as His child, as he did through Samuel to the Israelites. We have one greater than Samuel, we have the gift, and power of Himself to speak and work through us!
His peace and love always.
I went to sleep praying and I had a dream....
The dream took place on a side of a mountain, and the side of
the mountain was consumed with people. More than I could count. They were in
pairs, and one was standing over the one that was sitting. The one standing was injecting something in
the other person’s body. They were all
taking turns being the one standing, and sitting. The ones that were standing were patting the
ones that were sitting on the back saying how much they loved them, and what
amazing people they were.
The people would repeat how unique and special they were in
spirit and mind. The one standing would
ask the one sitting, “Can I help you
feel loved, have acceptance, mercy, forgiveness, food, clothes, money, or a place to
live while ignoring what they were putting into their bodies. The one sitting would tell the one standing
what they needed. “Yes, I want acceptance, love, mercy, forgiveness, clothing,
food, and shelter.” The one standing
would say to the one sitting, “I will help you, and give you all you need, I accept you the way you are, don’t worry, and I love all people.” Then they
would switch their purpose, the one sitting would be the one standing, and the
one standing would be the one sitting. They kept repeating this process over, and over while injecting this substance in their bodies. They did not see me, they looked right through
me as if I was invisible to them. I
walked among them looking at their faces, and eyes, expecting them to look at me, but they never did.
I was in a state of
shock wondering to myself, “Where am I? What kind of place is this?” It seemed
so real! They all looked so very happy, and loving each other as if what they
were putting into their bodies was OK. I asked myself, “I wonder what it is that they are putting into their bodies? Doesn’t it hurt them?” It appeared to be something good, and maybe it was what was making them love each other, and
help each other. They all appeared to love one another very much. They were laughing, smiling at one another, each
taking their turn doing the praising of one another, and accepting each other. Allowing what they were receiving into their bodies to continue with no affect. I
was perplexed, and very confused at what I was seeing, and their response to
As I was walking around them wondering all these things I
began to hear cries of helplessness, and hopelessness, but I could not see
where the sound was coming from. It was not coming from all the pairs of people on the
side of the mountain. Their faces were smiling, and they were loving one
another. The cries got louder and
louder, to the point I could not hear myself speak. I began to raise my voice
to the people so they might hear me. They looked right at me with no response. I cried out again, and again, "Where is that crying coming
from, why are you not trying to find it, why are you acting like you can't here
it? I kept crying out to them, and no one would answer, they were all ignoring
me, and then one finally said, "We do not hear any crying, everyone is happy
here, and loving each other no matter what they do or what they say, we all
love one another the way we want to be loved. Go away, we do not hear what you hear!"
I asked him again, "Do you
not hear the crying, the loud crying, and the sound it makes? Isn’t it piercing
your heart, and mind?” He answered me again, "No, we love each other the
way we are in our sin, in our sinful nature, and we love each person the way each person wants to be loved. That is the way God made us." I asked him,
“Do you not want to be reborn? Do you not know about God’s Son Jesus Christ
that he planned since the beginning of time to save you from your sinful nature?"
He said, "Yes of course we know Him, but we do not want to change we love
each other like this, we were made sinful, and we want to stay sinful." I
looked at him in shock, and walked away weeping as I walked to the top of the
mountain. As I walked away the crying became louder, and I covered my ears but
it did not lower the sounds of the crying. I noticed I was hearing it from inside, not from the outside. I turned and looked down at the multitude, and
fell to my knees praying to my Heavenly Father, "Father, where is the
crying coming from; I want to help them!!" My Heavenly Father said,
"You and I cannot help them because of the conditions of their stubborn
hearts, and the lies they let in their own minds have blocked their ears. They will not hear us, and accept me and
change as long as their hearts, and minds were in that condition. The gods of
this world are blocking their ears so they cannot hear what we are saying. I asked Him, "Where is the crying
coming from then if those people were not crying?" He said, "It is their
souls, and we can only hear them. The only reason you can hear their souls is because I am in you. I am the only one that can hear their souls, and defeat the sin their in."
I wailed louder, and louder in my dream,
so loud it woke my husband up. He shook
me to wake me up, and said frantically, “What is wrong, you sound like a wounded animal; you scared me!” I continued to cry, and
answered, “I can’t tell you right now,” and I cried myself back to sleep, as he held me. The next day, and the next after, I could not tell him either, but today I will.
The next day I woke up praying and, crying on, and off. I ask my Heavenly Father what this dream meant, and I
cried still another day because of his answer. He told me through his Spirit
within me as if he was sitting beside me. “The injections are the sinful
nature they liked, and they had no power within them to reject it. This sin
they are allowing in their body, mind, and soul is corrupting their minds, and is giving them a false sense of purpose, and love. These lies give them a false identity of who they truly are. It is true they are all born that
way. They all love one another that is true, they help one another, and
accepted one another easily. They love life, the world, and each other, but
they do not truly love me above one another, nor did they want me to be Lord of their lives, and make
them a different person through my Spirit. They want to keep their own,
and go their own way thinking all along it is the right way. My love is the only true love that can save them that takes them way beyond themselves, and makes them into the person they truly are. My love comes from ME, and you have to accept ME through my Son Jesus to know our love for one another, that truly gives you birth of being my true child. You know this because you had faith in my Son, but not all want too have faith in Him giving them all they need to live now, and forever.
I asked him with eyes full of tears,
“Father, what can we do? We can’t just ignore them like they ignore us.” He
said, “Of course not, that is not who we are. We never change because of who
they are. We keep speaking to them MY truth, loving them through ME, and praying for them. We can never ignore what the sin is doing to
them as they do, and one day they may here us, and that is up to them. I died for them so they would not continue to live in sin, but they have to want to get rid of what is not me in them. You also may die in body because you do speak the truth about ME, but you know you are with me forever as I lived, you also will live. If they never want to change, and turn to me in faith because what I have done for them then they all will perish, just has you would have perished if you
did not turn to me, and listen to my voice that delivered you from the power of your sinful nature.” I ask him still crying, “Are
they all going to perish?” He replied,
“That is not your concern, I want you to keep following me, listening to me, speaking my words, and doing my will as my reborn child,
and I will handle if they live or perish. You may loose children, parents, and friends because of me." I ask him, "Why did you give me this dream?" He said, "Because many think they are living their journey correctly, and doing right by loving one another the way they want to love one another, and my love, ways and truths are not in them only their own understanding of love, who I AM, and who they are. My love, ways, and thoughts are much higher than theirs or yours, but I will give you and all through my Son the understanding that they need. I want you to tell this dream so many may realize what they are doing, if not, do not let your heart be troubled, some will fall, but some will hear me, and be saved. I know who they are, and you will be able to tell who they are when you meet them because I am in you to tell you. I will be with you always."
I am telling everyone my dream because I love you as he loves you, and because I have to be obedient to him as his child doing his will for my life. My prayer is for you to receive his understanding of it, the same understanding of the dream he gave me is for you. His peace, and love always.
Good morning to all, grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Since Thanksgiving God brought a circumstance to my family, and through His Spirit we followed his lead. The circumstance was Christmas with my extended family. My sister, brother, their children, and friends along with my parents. Most of you know my family has a lot of hearts being revealed through the Spirit of Christ he has given me. Some are alcoholics falling into that temptation they need to be healed and delivered from. Some speak a coarse language with no guilt or shame. Some get tattoos all over their bodies with no guilt or shame from hurting their bodies and know the words that it is God's temple. We each have different desires, demons, and darkness in our sinful nature that will continue to keep us from following our Savior. Some in my family are committing sexual morality in different ways through giving in to homosexual temptations as well as lust before marriage. Some value their work, accomplishments, and money for their security. Some put their love for people before God. They hold more value of fear in being rejected by men, rather than fear of being rejected by God.
I was once apart of them, followed them in many ways, and giving in to my own weaknesses, darkness, and temptations. I too drank, did drugs, spoke coarse language, lusted, and fell into all kinds desires of the world my sinful nature lead me to follow. However, I never claimed, to know God, to live through the Spirit of God, nor called myself a Christian. The truth is many in my family think they are in Christ while living with these hearts and mind gratifying their sinful natures. Which is impossible! You cannot continue to live in sin and in Christ at the same time. They don't live for him through His Spirit, they are still living for their sinful natures gratifying it, and claiming they are still in Christ, and still having a relationship fully with God. Not only has God revealed this about my own family, he also has revealed these type of "Christians" in his universal church, and many are being deceived, and do not realize it. Many Christians think salvation is a way to keep living in sin and being love and molded into Christ at the same time. This has become an on going teaching that is false and is not proclaimed at all through his word and through His Spirit of truth within his true children.
Now back to the circumstance of picking a day for my family to celebrate our Lord's birth. For me when I am around them I see what God see's through the heart of each member of my family because that is who Christ is in me. Most Christians has not received this teaching, that Christ works in and through people for all to benefit from. Spirit encouraging Spirit within each person. He reveals my heart and the hearts of many around me for all to benefit from. He continually test the spirits around me, I do not ever know, but he reveals their hearts to me by his discernment he gives to all his children. He has revealed my heart, and has removed all that is not him in me by all he has given me of himself from the cross, and now he works through me to reveal the hearts of others for his benefit. What interest he has in people, their souls, will now be my interest in people because he wills all that are his to be sanctified fully in body, spirit and soul for his purpose. Before I knew him my interest in my own soul was not given to me by God, nor was I interested in the condition of my own soul. All I did was search for what filled it, and nothing did for me until I reached out to grab his hand that has been there all along. Before I knew him I was not aware of my soul's condition, and if it was right with God or not. He is the only one that can tell me if I am right with God, and he will reveal to me if others are right after I am right with him.
Since that day at the cross, and I gave all to him, and he came to live in me he has renewed my soul, and he keeps renewing it by me willingly letting him work through me for others. I have given him freely all rights to myself as his child wanting to do his will in my own life. I have held on to what he has given me from day one, and any person on earth can do the same.
Today we are going to investigate someone who God uses, and who our Lord is, and what will happen to the world when he comes. We are going to first look at a Jew named Simeon, why would God use him to tell his earthly father and mother who their child was? God will always speak through his people for all to benefit from, especially his own people, and this is a perfect person for us to learn from in describing why God would choose him to announce who this child Emanuel was.
Luke 2:25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
Many things are revealed to us about this man through this statement. First we are revealed he was a "righteous" man. Today there are many "righteous" people, and they are making right choices, but what is different about this righteous man than any other righteous person? There are also many people that think they are making the right choices, and are being deceived. This goes for the world as well as the people in his universal church. What makes this man any different than any other human?
The word "just" is used in the KJV to describe the "righteous" people of God which the NIV uses the word righteous instead of "just" but both have the same meaning. This word in Greek is "dikaios" and it sounds like dik'-ah-yos. It also is an adjective so it would be describing a an attribute of a person. It describes someone in God's word as approved of by God, acceptable of God, and God can freely work through in speaking, and revealing his truth. It would describe a person who makes correct judgments not a hypocritical person, nor someone speaking with malice toward another person. It describes someone used by God whose way of thinking, feeling, and acting is wholly conformed to the will of God, and who therefore needs nothing given that God will not freely give. This would be a person who puts God totally first above all things in their heart, mind and soul, and Simon was a "just" person of God.
The second word that describes him is devout. This word is used both in the KJV and the NIV. This word is also an adjective and describes this man Simeon. It is the Greek word "eulabes" it sounds like yoo-lab-ace'. It means taking hold carefully, and surely what God gives you above all else. This would be someone holding on to reverence for God above all things and people in the world. This person would stand out in the world as someone that had the knowledge of God and carefully and surely spoke and walked as God instructed. This would be someone the world would not understand at all. Someone that feared displeasing God above anyone else in the world.
The next description is, "He was waiting for the consolation of Israel." The word waiting is the Greek word "prosdechomai", it sounds like pro-dekh'-om-ahee. This word means, expecting a fulfillment of a promise. When you tell your child you are picking them up from school they are expecting a fulfillment of your promise. When your husband tells you he will be home for dinner your expecting a fulfillment of his promise. It is your word or their word you are expecting them to fulfill. Now with God all his words or promises cannot be broken, he fulfills all of them, nothing can get in his way, or keep him from fulfilling what he has told his children. Simeon was waiting on God and his promise to him, with his just attribute, along with his devout attribute for God. This man sounds like he would be someone I would want to meet, and talk too for hours, days, months and years!!
The next few words is the "consolation of Israel." This tells us he was a Jew or an Israelite by birth, and lived through the law and the prophets messages. What is the "consolation" of Israel. This word "consolation" in Greek is "paraklesis", it sounds like par-ak'-lay-sis. This word means -to sooth the grief of. What grieved the Israelites? They struggled constantly with God, and they could not keep the law; what grieved them? They wanted peace, comfort, joy, and acceptance from their God. They were waiting for their Messiah that would save all this grief within themselves. It was their sin, and we will see it is the Gentles sin that causes their grief within themselves as well. Although many did not understand who he was and the salvation he was giving the world, but Simeon knew all because the Holy Spirit was upon him, and he knew God's thoughts, judgments and truth for what was coming through this child he was blessing because God was giving it to him to speak and tell.
We receive from God in the next statement that God had given him another promise other than the consolation of Israel, he was also "expecting" or waiting on. "It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord's Christ."
Luke 2:27 Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: "Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in the peace. 30 For my eyes have seen your salvation 31 which you have prepared in the sight of all people, 32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel. The child's father and mother marveled at what was being said about him.
Simeon was moved by the Spirit to walk in the temple courts!! This again shows us who Simeon followed because the Spirit was before him, in mind and heart, and he was continually led by him to judge him where he went in life and what path he would take, the Spirit in Simeon also judged the world around him, he knew his mother's soul would be pierced by his sword.
Luke 2:34 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: "This child is destined to cause the falling and the rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too."
This statement reveals God speaking through Simeon that describes Jesus' destiny and why he came. The same reason he came is the same reason we are sent.
John 20:21 Again Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me. I am sending you. And with that he breathed on them and said, " Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not for give them, they are not forgiven.
This is our Lord giving us the same authority on earth as he has, when we have faith in him and deny ourselves and carry our cross daily, but many Christians today have not received this teaching, nor his authority. False teachings have their ears blocked, or they are living continually in sin that keeps them from hearing his message.
Let us look closely at what Simeon reveals about the destiny of this child named Jesus, the Savior of Israel and the Gentile world.
"This child is destined to cause the falling and the rising of many in Israel and be a sign that will be spoken against."
Wait a minute, I was taught all my life in churches that Jesus loves all people why would people still fall, why would they scatter, and not run to the light? I was taught God loves all people unconditionally, why would some still fall? Because their is a condition, you have to receive His Son, he died for you to receive him, and if you don't you will not change, and you will not be forgiven, God's wrath still remains, your guilt, your unworthiness, and your sin. There is a condition, it is your sinful nature that causes the grief that keeps you from being who you are. It is a condition he can only cure! When Christ is in you his grace has a huge effect on you! It changes you!! Through Christ he loves you unconditionally, because his love will change you, mold you and be a shield for you against evil, the world and yes, even yourself. He brings His peace, His love and comfort that goes beyond our human understanding, why would anyone appose him, and speak against him, he came to save the world from darkness, to speak God's grace, and give it to all who believed. Why would some ignore him? Why would they not hold on to what he gives them? He loves everyone why would people oppose him, and not rise from the cross as he did? Is this what he was destined for, to cause the rise and fall of many, and to be sign that would be spoken against? If he does that we will not have peace on earth, he then will create a division, only those who are truly his as Simeon was will only know His peace, comfort and be given the Spirit to live through, to guide. Not everyone wants to be Simeon, to give up all, to live by his word and instructions, not everyone will want him to have authority over their lives, and live only by faith in Him giving them the mind, spirit, and body to live by. Some will still want to go their own way, make their own god, and their own Jesus and worship him the way they want to.
"So that thoughts of many hearts will be revealed". This statement pierces my mind and soul. Jesus came to reveal my heart and my thoughts and through him in me, other hearts and thoughts will be revealed. Is this possible? With man no, but with God, Yes!! It is proven through all the disciples that their hearts were new, and their souls were renewed by His Spirit and He tested all others spirits through his Spirit in them for the saving of other souls they came in contact with, or to stay away from. Some was drawn to his light, but many fell because they wanted to go their own way with their deceiving light of themselves, and remain in darkness, and his light was rejected.
John 3:19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of the light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
Some were false apostles, some were false brothers, some remained lost souls, and fell from grace. Many were saved and raised in his glory through His Spirit in them also. They never stopped planting his seed where ever they went, praying for all souls saved or unsaved. His disciples and apostles continued to speak his words of salvation and truth to all and some heard, some did not hear correctly, some twisted the words, and some did not hear at all. The god of this world has blocked their ears. Some became like Simeon and gave their whole hearts, mind, and body to God, denying themselves and caring their cross daily by all he gave them through the same Spirit, others did not. This is happening in our world today.
Today I want us to look at ourselves and see if we are changing daily and becoming like Simeon and Jesus after we have left the cross. Do you find yourself giving up all for God, giving up anyone, and anything above him? Are you more fearful of displeasing God or more afraid of displeasing people? Are you still living in sin, and justifying it as something else? Picking one sin over another? Are you twisting God's word around to fit your own life style?
You can begin today with His truth that takes you beyond yourself, Satan, and this world straight in his arms that is above anyone or anything in this world. What he gives us can only complete us. What he gives is much greater than the world gives!! His grace is beyond human grace, and his forgiveness is beyond human forgiveness. His love, peace and joy is beyond happiness, and His rest for your soul goes beyond any human rest for your soul you may receive from others or from things. All that he gives you keeps you from living in sin, he takes away your unworthiness your human soul and spirit has been living with.
We all fall short of the glory of God, that is true for every man on earth, but HE does not!! He takes away your grief of not fulling what God desires of you and gives you all to overcome the evil sinful nature that is inside you. He truly can change you, and the world around you through you. If you have not gone to the cross go now, and if you think knowing God, his thoughts and promises, his salvation, and his glory is something you might desire for yourself then go now he has been holding his hand out to you from the cross since you were born. Take only His truth and Word that molds you right, and just, and devout expecting all he gives you to come to pass. His destiny becomes yours when you receive HIM. Does it sound like a destiny you may want?
His peace and love always.
Good morning! Grace and peace to you in abundance from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Today we are discussing the definition of His will from His truth in Matthew 5v10 your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
The first question I have when I read these words is," Father, am I apart of your Kingdom or am I part of another kingdom?" If we are looking truthfully in the mirror at our soul and are in Jesus Christ because His Holy Spirit is with in us, our answer will always be, " I know I am apart of your Kingdom Father thank you for choosing me to be your daughter or son, you are the Lord in and over me fulfilling my living soul with your desires, attitudes and behaviors from the gift of yourself changing me daily to complete your purpose for my life that you created for me. I am yours Father, building up your kingdom of faith in you everyday of my life so they may love you as I love you Father because we are one, I am in you and you are in me.
John17v2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
v22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
If you are looking truthfully in the mirror and see your soul, and your answer is" I am not sure Father, because I work a lot for you, I read your word everyday,I pray a lot to you, I complete the desires that are in my heart, and I do have a purpose in my life but I know the attitude and the behaviors coming out of me are not yours because I am not changing from within. This would mean He is not the Lord of your life, you are apart of another kingdom of this world with a different god or idol you are following and are being deceived. Your truthful answer would be, " I belong to another, building up another kingdom with faith in another god completing my own purpose and going my own way, please forgive me and lead me back to you doing your will and not my own.
Matthew 7v21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord" will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of my Farther who is in heaven. v22 Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?" v23 Then I will tell them plainly, "I never knew you. Away from em, you evildoers!"
The first living soul is a person that is doing our true Father's will now as He would in Heaven. His behaviors and thinking have changed due to the power that He has received from the Holy Spirit and his mind is set on the nature of what that Spirit desires from His nature, and not the nature of their human spirit with what it desires.
John6v63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are Spirit and they are life v64 Yet there are some of you who do not believe. v65 He went on to say, "This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled him."
On the outside this person MAY NOT look like they are doing their Father's will because they are separated from the world, endure persecution and trails of many kinds. They may do things and say things that are not pleasing to their own will for their life in word or deed, as well as pleasing to others. They take the uncomfortable path that is less traveled in life to receive His comfort and grace, which is full of the only true and real love that surpasses any human natural love and acceptance any of us can experience. The life they live may appear to the world as foolish, with no love from others and very unwise. This is why there are so many that are being deceived.
2 Corinthians 4v7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
On the inside the first living soul is well pleased full of undisturbed peace, faith, hope and love with all the gifts of the Father himself living inside their soul completing His purpose for them not the purpose they choose or others may choose for them. Our Father has taken the soul of this person and made it his own and it using it to complete His purpose of saving other souls. It is full of their Father's love and acceptance that guards their hearts always from the trials, hardships and persecution they will experience in their lives. They are fully dependent on their Father for everything they receive in this life internally, externally into eternity. His will is done in them on earth as it is in Heaven. This person is not afraid of anything that comes in his life because the love of His Father always guards his heart which gives him full assurance and trust. His love puts a hedge around Him and is a shield to the fallen world.
2 Corinthians 5v14 For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
1 Peter 1v3 Praise be to the God and Farther of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade-kept in heave for you, through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.
The second living soul is a person that thinks they are doing his will but no change in their behaviors, thinking and attitude from within. On the outside this person looks like he is doing his Father's will but on the inside their is no change and as a result he is not doing his Father's will here and will not be doing it in Heaven as well if they keep going in this direction.
Matthew 18v18 "I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, and what ever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
So we are free to say in His truth this person does not truly know His true Father in Heaven personally because his will is not done on earth as it is in Heaven because their is no rebirth, no change within this person is taking place through the Holy Spirit. They do all kinds of work for the Lord, pray and lead others to a man made kingdom being deceived living out their own will or the will of others. They may have a lot of friends, a lot of people to praise them for their work, and pleasing themselves and people is very important to them that is what gives them pleasure. This soul does not want to tell God's truth to another soul nor can he because his soul has not accepted God's complete truth renewing His own soul. This living soul does not want to risk a loving relationship with another living soul or risk their own peace and comfort going their own way they would rather receive praise from men than receive praise from God. If they would speak His truth they would be blessed by God and recognize what He gives them out weighs anything they could give themselves or receive from others.
Johnv41 "I do not accept praise from men, but I know you. I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts. I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if some else comes in his own name, you will accept him. v 44 How can you believe if you accept praise from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God?
This person on the inside may get their feelings hurt easily, may have bitterness and be spiteful with pride without being able to control their behaviors because they have no control without our Lord being their true Lord teaching and correcting them by them receiving His Spirit with his nature and attitude.They have a false sense of humbleness in the world but with God they are not humble to His will. Unless we humble ourselves to Him like little children we will not receive His will and words that complete our lives.
Matthew 11v25 At that time Jesus said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father , for this is for your good pleasure.
v27 "All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to revel him.
v28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
These souls maybe conscious of a need to change but they are also conscience of them making themselves good and holy, they have made themselves their god to follow. With our Father being our Lord we are always conscience of what needs to be changed within us but we are never conscience of how He changes us. We are always aware of the change in us, but we have no conscience effort of making the change ourselves that is why we are always lifted up by His strength while we are doing His will. There is never a heavy burden in our souls when we truly are doing the will of our Father only when we are doing the work ourselves. We have faith in Him making us inside to work out for others and He proves His Spirit in us working everyday of our lives by the opportunities he gives us for others he puts in our path.Our God and our Lord always has known what was in man and never trusted their human nature as we should never trust ourselves in our own human nature and we will not if we have been reborn by His new life giving Holy Spirit.
John 2v23 Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many people saw the miraculous signs he was doing and believed in this name. But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men. He did not need men's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.
His will comes in us freely as if it was the wind blowing in our face, when we are His chosen Kingdom we do not no where it comes from or how. All we know is we have surrendered all to Him in faith giving all ourselves to our ultimate giver of life for the saving of our souls. For His name sake, and glory for Him working His miracle in us, not for who we are, all praise and glory go to Him because of Him growing His change in us. We do not ever know how he will use us or where he is taking us we have faith in His power and love guiding us every day, and accept His will for our lives willingly what ever the circumstances may be.
John 3v7 You should not be surprised at my saying, "You must be born again. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
When we have willingly surrendered by the gift of his faith all of our love, thinking, behaviors, wisdom, knowledge, and plans for our future to Him, He then takes over our will for our life. This is surrendering our spirit, soul, and body to Him. He then gives us His love, thinking, behaviors, wisdom, and knowledge and plans for our future without any conscience effort on our part. He makes us whole and complete for His purpose. He continues this working of his will in us here on earth as it is in Heaven for all to live eternally with Him.
There is no waiting to be made Holy, his will is to make us Holy here on earth as the Holy Spirit of God speaks through Paul to us here about working out with fear and trembling what God works in for his will to act according to His purpose. His work in us will always give us a trembling effect with a fear of never wanting to displease Him and we always want to work out what He puts in we do not want to stop his will to act for his purpose if we are being led by His Spirit.
Philippians 2v12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed-not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, -continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.
We are His now as if we were in Heaven by what is in us internally now through His gift of His Son. His Spirit now gives life to our body and renews our soul here and our outside body should prove His work in, through and all around us. Our earthly body will die any time He calls us, but His Spirit and soul lives forever doing His will on earth as it is in Heaven.
Today we need to ask ourselves whose Kingdom of faith are we building? If we are building His Kingdom are we building it for ourselves making ourselves our Jesus and our God or are we building through Him our Savior our only true God that completes us and makes us whole? Are we praising His Holy name or praising others?
Are we following others or are we following our one true Savior dying to ourselves everyday by choosing His way which is less traveled or going our own way which is more traveled? There are a lot of questions we need to ask ourselves about His will but there is only one answer to all questions. Keep your Faith He gives you from the first day He opens your heart to His love and accept Him as your one true Lord and Savior of your soul, never leave Him or His love that fills your soul, and he will guide you every day 24 hours a day by His work in you. If you leave Him he will leave you, but when you come back to Him he will come back to you. As long as you remain in His love He will never leave you, but if you do he will always be faithful waiting for your return.
We do not know when our end will come so do His will now and accept Him as your Lord and Savior and watch Him change you to a true child of God that completes you here on earth as His will for your life is complete in Heaven.
His Peace and His love always.
