Christ In You, The Hope Of Glory

OBAMA

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.  Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily. Colossians 1:27-29

The central theme of Apostle’s Paul teaching and preaching wasn’t the peripheral issues that Christians are always debating about whether suffering and poverty is the will of God, should women have short uncovered hair or preach; we should hate, despise  ourselves for Christ sake;  pray morbid prayers for mutilation of our body and flesh,  cancers to plague our body and flesh, or be hit by a large truck, so that we can suffer like Jesus did and have his character in us; is One God, existing as Three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; do we worship on Sunday morning or night or Saturday? The central theme of Paul teaching and preaching was Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily. Yes, even man is to be perfect in Christ till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ-  from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love (Ephesians 4:12-16) was important to apostle Paul and should be important to us as Christians. God’s word is unchanging:

The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.  “Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.  “You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.  “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.  “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:19-24

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:12-14

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,  from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,  that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:15-21

“Christ in you, the hope of glory” the matter of true worshippers worshipping the Father “in Spirit and in truth”, and not at a specific time and place is what it is all about.  Its not when and where, but whom we worship and how.  It’s not any of the peripheral issues that are important but only Christ in us and worshipping the Father “in Spirit and in truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.  “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”  Because Christ is in us we can do greater works that Jesus did and have all our prayers answer. “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it” is just a true today as it was yesterday and will be tomorrow.

Because Christ is in us we can according to the riches of His glory, be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, be rooted and grounded in love, be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; so that we may be filled with all the fullness of God.  Yes, God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, the power of the Holy Spirit who resides in and abides with us. And as we yield to the power we will see the fruits and works of Christ in us!

Because of Christ in us we not only have hope and glory but power and miracles for our God is a miracle working God and a life giver. Jesus came to destroy all the works of the devil and remove all curses from us including sickness, poverty and lack. Jesus, the Life-Giver, gives us spiritual life, physical life, life everlasting. For those who are in Christ it is written, “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, . . . because of His great love. . . made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:1, 4-6; Colossians 2:13; John 5:24-25). God’s word is unchanging:

Bless the LORD, O my soul,  And forget not all His benefits:  Who forgives all your iniquities,  Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,  Who satisfies your mouth with good things,  So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  Psalm 103:2-5

But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Romans 8:11

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God-and righteousness and sanctification and redemption-1 Corinthians 1:30

Because of Christ in us we are not only forgiven of all our iniquities, we are healed of all our diseases for Christ redeems our life, crowns us with loving-kindness and tender mercies, satisfies our mouth with good things,  so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Because of Christ we have not only righteousness and sanctification and redemption but God’s grace abounding towards us that we, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have abundance for every good work.

Through Christ we have not a religion but a living vibrant relationship with God. Through Christ, “we are more than conquerors” (Romans 8:37; 2 Timothy 1:10). Through Christ we have all we need, be it for life, for death, or for eternity. Through Christ “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13) Through Christ we overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). Through Christ God can restore everything that was lost or stolen from His people. He can heal them from the top of their head to the tip of their toes. He can make them whole body, soul and Spirit. He can bless them out of their socks including financially.  God’s word is unchanging:

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God: “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.  “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. “The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. “The LORD will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 28:1-8

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8

Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2

SOMETHING TO CONSIDER

CE

IF GOD IS ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THE WE AS OR THINK ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT WORKS IN US. WHY DO WE LIMIT THAT POWER OR OUR PRAYERS?

Matthew 8:13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.

Matthew 18:19 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.

EPHESIANS 3:14    For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15    from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16    that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,
17    that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18    may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height —
19    to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
20    Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
21    to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

3 John 1: 2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers 3 For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth.
4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

DON’T BURY THE DEAD?

Matthew 8:22 But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

Luke 9:60 Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.”

GETTING INVOLVED WITH DEAD PEOPLE IS A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME! AS YOU KNOW THEY ARE REALLY CRAZY, BLIND  EGOTISTIC AND SELF CENTERED!

OUR JOB IS TO FOLLOW JESUS AND PREACH THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND LET THE OTHERS REAP WHAT THEY HAVE SOWN. AND FOR SOME THE REWARDS WILL BE IN THE CURRENT TIME OF LIFE AND FOR OTHERS SOONER THEN THEY HAVE EXPECTED BOTH GOOD AND BAD?

2 Samuel 3:39 And I am weak today, though anointed king; and these men, the sons of Zeruiah, are too harsh for me. The LORD shall repay the evildoer according to his wickedness.”

Job 34:11  For He repays man according to his work, And makes man to find a reward according to his way.

Psalms 62:12 Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy; For You render to each one according to his work.

Jeremiah 17:10  I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.

Jeremiah 32:19 You are great in counsel and mighty in work, for Your eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, to give everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings.

Ezekiel 18:30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord GOD. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin.

Hosea 12:2  ” The LORD also brings a charge against Judah, And will punish Jacob according to his ways; According to his deeds He will recompense him.

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

Luke 12:47 And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

2 Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. May the Lord repay him according to his works.

Revelation 20:13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.

Revelation 22:12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.

DID YOU KNOW THE GOD GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO HUMBLE THE PROUD?

JOB 40:6 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
7 ” Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me:
8 ” Would you indeed annul My judgment? Would you condemn Me that you may be justified?
9 Have you an arm like God? Or can you thunder with a voice like His?
10 Then adorn yourself with majesty and splendor, And array yourself with glory and beauty.
11 Disperse the rage of your wrath; Look on everyone who is proud, and humble him.
12 Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low; Tread down the wicked in their place.
13 Hide them in the dust together, Bind their faces in hidden darkness.
14 Then I will also confess to you That your own right hand can save you.

Proverbs 3:34 Surely He scorns the scornful, But gives grace to the humble.

James 4:6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: ” God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

1 Peter 5:5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ” God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

WHEN YOU SEE A BLACK STORM CLOUD ON THE HORIZON YOU MAKE ARRANGEMENTS ACCORDINGLY? THERE IS A BIG STORM CLOUD ON THE HORIZON AND THE BLIND ONES CANNOT EVEN SEE IT’S THERE AND WILL PAY THE PRICE FOR THEIR FOOLISHNESS IN SPITE OF WHAT POSITIVE PREACHERS PREACH!

Matthew 16: 1 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’;
3 and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.” And He left them and departed.

MANY CHRISTIANS CANNOT DISCERN THE REAL JESUS FROM THE COUNTERFEIT ONE AND BECOME A TOOL OF THE DEVIL
MATTHEW 5:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!

Once a false prophet, always a false prophet!  Benny Hinn follows the pattern of all false prophets:  NO REPENTANCE REQUIRED AND YOU TELL THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR!

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so; and what will  ye do in the end thereof?” (Jeremiah 5: 31).  They never learn do they?

TRUE CHRISTIANS ARE DIFFERENT IN THEIR BEHAVIOR FROM THOSE IN THE WORLD

1 CORINTHIANS 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

GALATIANS 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

And God has already provided His healing power inside every born-again believer. It’s up to us to release it. Using our authority is the key to seeing miracles happen

TALKING ABOUT THE PROSPERITY GOSPEL, IDIOTS INCLUDING BAPTIST PREACHERS CAN SAY WHAT EVER THEY WANT AGAINST IT BUT IT DOESN’T CHANGE THE FACT THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS AND WHAT HE DID FOR JOB HE CAN DO FOR ANY ONE WHO BELIEVES Job 42: 1 Then Job answered the LORD and said:
2 ” I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.
3 You asked, ‘Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
4 Listen, please, and let me speak; You said, ‘I will question you, and you shall answer Me.’
5 ” I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You.
6 Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.”
7 And so it was, after the LORD had spoken these words to Job, that the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is aroused against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has.
8 Now therefore, take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams, go to My servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and My servant Job shall pray for you. For I will accept him, lest I deal with you according to your folly; because you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has.”
9 So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did as the LORD commanded them; for the LORD had accepted Job.
10 And the LORD restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11 Then all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the LORD had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.
12 Now the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.
13 He also had seven sons and three daughters.
14 And he called the name of the first Jemimah, the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch.
15 In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.
16 After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations.
17 So Job died, old and full of days.

Revival and The Character Of Christ!

BC

“Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through  our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith that this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.  And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulations produces perseverance, and perseverance, character; and character, hope.  Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:1-5

“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.  Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.” Romans 8:29-30.

Down through the centuries there have been many revivals that sprang up like wild fire, burnt a bit and died? They were not centered on the development in the life of the Christ like character in the lives of their adherents. They forgot that Christians were predestined to be conformed to the image of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, who is the firstborn among many brethren.  The revival went off on wonderful tangents but not on the center which is to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. When all is said and done, at the end of life besides the good works that we have done and have gone before us, the only thing that Christians take with them is the character of Christ in them.

Miracles, signs and wonders are wonderful and great as well as the glory manifestation of God but it has to translate into real character change of Christ in us or it has no value for us in eternity. If we win one million souls for Jesus and we are not like Jesus, it is meaningless.  We don’t get much reward in heaven for all our efforts.  Paul said that we could have faith to move mountains, we could have prophecies to understand all things and if we don’t have love, we are nothing. We need to have a personal transformation in our life is to have the character of Jesus.  That is the most important part for and of any revival.

It’s wonderful to live on the promises of God and see them come to fruitrition in our lives and have God’s abiding presence, as a result of hearing God’s voice and to be in God’s perfect will, bringing us to position where we  could demonstrate God’s anointing and power.  But we still must have the character of Christ which is an inward thing and is not necessarily demonstrated by all the outward things such as mass healing and deliverance! It is important that all the power of God must first flow from us through the character of God in us.

The signs and wonders, the true manifestation of God that comes, flow in proportion to the character of God in us where we demonstrate the character and compassion of Jesus to others. Many Christians are so obsessed with the outward manifestation that they forget that it’s the inward character that is the most important.  God’s word is unchanging:

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.  For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. 1 Corinthians 13:8-10

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.  For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.  But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. 1 Corinthians 14:1-3
We don’t deny or neglect the gifts of the Spirit but rather we understand that on the basis of the love of God in us and through us they bring edification and exhortation and comfort to men. Having the character of Jesus in us allows the power of Jesus to flow into our life more powerfully and the gifts of the Spirit work more powerfully as we allow the character of Jesus to developed and manifested in us. And everybody profits as a result including ourselves.

The test of a true revival is not the quantity of manifestations and gifts of the Spirit but whether people have become more loving.  Have their character been changed?  Have pride and arrogance being demoted in their lives rather than being promoted. God judges Christians not only by the power in their lives but also by the fruit. God’s word is unchanging:

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,  from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,  that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-  to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:16-19

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.  And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. Galatians 5:22-26
Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. Romans 13:10
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7

The most important thing in life is to allow God to build the character of Jesus in us so when the gifts flow out of love it will have the effect and impact and will last forever and all will profit from it. Yes, love obeys all the commandments of God!  Yes, as well love God we hearken to all the commandments of God and this causes all good things to be upon us,   including health abundance, prosperity abundance, and life. When we walk in love and keep the commandments of God we receive all the blessings of God and God will make us the head and not the tail.  The health laws and all the other laws flow with the blessings and the promises of God as we walk in love and let the character of Jesus be manifested in us.

It’s to be noted that the most important role of the apostles, evangelists, prophets, pastors, and teachers is to bring the church to be like Jesus in character, in walk, in faith, in power, in everything.  And being like Jesus starts in our hearts, in our soul and in our life! The power of God that is in Jesus begins with us becoming Christ-like.  And when we have the character of Jesus we will have true prosperity, good health, the power of God in our life and we will glory in tribulation, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. We will have faith,  virtue, knowledge, knowledge self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love. God’s word is unchanging:

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. 1 Peter 1:2-9

Revival is a joke in America especially when run and started by a family owned and run ministries who are thieves, liars and scoundrels.It seems that all of these family run ministries see the dumb sheep as God sent to be fleeced for their own hidden agenda and growth of their personal kingdom of which they are kings and rule supreme and are not accountable to the public but only to God. But they collect their money from people and not God? And their tax exemption comes from the people and not God? So whom are they fooling? Not God and not the people!

Is it possible that they are really crooks who use the separation of Church and State to fleece the sheep as South African Evangelist Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne had said, it was their responsibility to fleece the sheep? For in a Howard Browne winter camp meeting in the USF Sun  Dome in Tampa Florida attended by two CNT reporters,  South African Pentecostal Evangelist Dr. Rodney Howard Browne taught pastors that “sheep needed to be fleeced or they would have too much hair and could not see where they are going. It was the pastor’s job to fleece the sheep.”

Dr. Rodney Howard- Browne had been credited with bringing the laughter revival to America. But from what really happened in Carpenter’s Home Church in 1993 and 1994 and its devastating effect on the community including the robbing, raping and murdering of the sheep, was not much of a revival.
The leadership of the Assembly of God denomination both in Lakeland and Missouri also would not accept the testimony of one of its members Roy Aldrich that he was robbed and raped by money changers and wolves in sheep’s clothing in Carpenter’s Home Church during the so called “revival”. But the State of Florida who cared about justice, righteousness and truth accepted the words and testimony of Roy Aldrich about the Straders.

The Florida State prosecutors proved their case and convinced the jurors that Dan Strader, the son of the senior pastor Karl Strader, devised an elaborate scheme to attract cash in the real-estate and mortgage investments. He was selling the securities without a license and that the securities were unregistered. This was done in an organized method amounting to Racketeer-Influence and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO Act.

Daniel, 37, was sentenced to 45 years in prison in August 1995. He was convicted of 238 felony counts for bilking 57 mostly elderly investors, some members of the church, out of $2.3 million by selling investments in properties that didn’t exist or already had liens against them. Others who were involved along with Dan Strader were not pursed by the State of Florida as they felt that the conviction of Daniel Strader was a good example for others to take notice.

Dr. Rodney Howard Browne used his influence and powers to raise money at Carpenter’s Home Church to buy the senior pastor Karl Strader his much needed second Lincoln Town Car. But when Rodney was requested to use his influence and power to raise money for the unfortunate elderly victims of Dan’s Strader, he refused. But when German Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke’s decided to relocate his ministry to Florida, Rodney Howard-Browne decided he would give Bonnke a house. At first he offered Bonnke his own house in Tampa, but Bonnke had to locate in Orlando to be closer to his operational base. It was then that Howard-Browne decided to build Bonnke a new $250,000 home in Orlando. Rodney then drove a brand new car to Bonnke’s driveway. How wonderful of Rodney to be a respecter of persons and to show partiality to the rich?

It is to be noted that Howard-Browne’s standard biography claims he once served as an associate pastor at Rhema. But according to Rhema church officials contacted, Howard-Browne was never an associate pastor-nor did he ever hold any pastoral credentials or responsibilities. Said Kelmeyer: “Rodney was never an associate pastor here. He was an ordained minister by the state and a lecturer at our Bible school, but was not involved in any form of pastoral work.”

Howard-Browne also claimed a “doctorate of ministry degree” from an obscure San Jacinto, California correspondence institution called “The School of Bible Theology.” A state Department of Education employee contacted likened the tiny school, which bills itself as “The Seminary to the World” and has no faculty, to a “diploma mill.”

While most doctorate degrees are earned through serious study at through hard work at a credited University, Life Christian University of Tampa, another diploma mill now related to Dr. Rodney,  gives out honorary degrees to prominent Charismatic Christians based on stupidity and has stated:
“Many full-time ministers continue their education to the doctoral level through our Distance Learning program. These doctoral programs can include work in which the minister is currently involved and advanced standing is awarded for published works.  Our illustrious alumni include such internationally-prominent ministers as:
Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne
Doctor of Divinity
Doctor of Theology

It’s a fact that many of the so called revivals and their leaders are from the pits of hell and are devoid of “love” which is the mark of a true Christian. Unlike Jesus they take the lives of the sheep instead of laying down their own lives by taking money from the sheep in false pretenses like Todd Bentley did in the so called Lakeland Revival.

Todd Bentley, the criminally convicted homosexual pedophile turned drunken heretic and adulterer who kicked old ladies in the face and stomach on YouTube at the failed Lakeland, Florida counterfeit revival has entered into a biblically adulterous re- marriage while under a “process of restoration” led by biblically proven false prophet Rick Joyner.

Bentley was ring master at a debacle of lunacy and false healing debunked on national TV orchestrated by the infamous Strader family, whom the District Attorney implicated in financial scandals defrauding elderly Christians of millions of dollars. While the Florida District Attorney publicly names Pastor Steve Strader as complicit in the swindling, his brother was sent to prison for over 30 years as a professional gangster under American anti racketeering RICO statutes.

Despite its unbiblical doctrines and practices, Wendy Alec of the so-called “God Channel” denounced opponents of the madness and heresy as being of Satan. Lunatic fringe figures such John Arnott, Rick Joyner, Che An, Bill Johnson, and C. Peter Wagner decided this fiasco was a revival in the character of the similarly failed counterfeit revivals in Toronto and Pensacola.

Bob Jones was debunked as a sexual predator with vulnerable women while Paul Cain was publicly disclosed to be a drunken pervert with a life long history of alcoholism and homosexuality.

So what happened to all the supporters of Todd Bentley at his Coronation at Lakeland, Florida who were very vocal about what God was going to do with and as a result of Todd Bentley? (Todd Bentley’s Apostolic and Prophetic Commissioning 4/4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAnNSiZfgvI )

I guess the deceivers and liars thought that that if they closed their eyes, their mouths and their eyes it would all go away and be just a bad nightmare?

If only such things happened in life where we can just change the TV channel whenever we don’t want others to know how bad and deceived we really are!

But real life is not like that! And the bible tells us:
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. “You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? “Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.  “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. “Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:15-20
“Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. Luke 17:3

It’s a fact that Todd Bentley is an unrepentant thief, liar, adulterer, and scoundrel who has demonstrated by his words or deeds. So how can we forgiven someone who is not a Christian but a false prophet who has been rebuked and refuses to repent? We cannot!

And Rick Joyner, the deceiver, did not address at all the real issues like Todd Bentley was and is still an unrepentant drunkard, liar, thief, adulterer and wizard who had not confessed his sins nor repented of them! For example Todd asked for 1,000 people to donate $ 1,000 dollars ($ 1million) so he could make a down payment of $ 475,000 on property on a lake in Lakeland for a love nest for Todd and his mistress Jessa.
Todd stole the money under false pretense and he is obligated by God’s word to restore the money!
And Todd’s wife Shonnah Bentley was just as much of a liar and deceiver who carried on with the masquerade of a perfect and wonderful marriage at Todd’s coronation in Lakeland but knew all about Todd’s being a drunkard and a womanizer!

It’s a fact that all those who were involved in this demonic revival and claimed to be super apostles and prophets and having absolute no discernment about Todd being a womanizer, a drunkard, an adulterer, a liar and a thief before and during the revival! So they and their supporters are not different from Todd or Rick. They are liars and deceivers who are not sons of God but sons of hell!

A blogger named AriseMyLove on April 19, 2009 posted the following that is to be noted:
Rick Joyner is trying to get people to “throw stones” at Todd Bentley so that his critics look like the “Pharisees”.
However, the real criticism of Todd Bentley, let us never forget, is the Satanic teachings of Bob Jones, Rick Joyner, Bill Hamon, Paul Cain, and C Peter Wagner.
Bentley’s sin is simply the fruit of Joyner’s own false ministry.
Let us not fall prey to Joyner’s Anti Christ tactics.
I’d much rather ask the questions of Joyner than respond to his demented videos.
Again, Joyner is baiting everyone to make us look like Pharisees who are casting hypocritical stones at Todd Bentley for his sin.
It is not Todd’s sin that we care about so much, it is the Jezebel breeding ground of false prophecy that we care about, the false teachings of the NAR.
Jesus says that false prophetess Jezebel “teaches sexual immorality”
so Todd’s sin, like Bob Jones sexual sin and Paul Cain’s sexual sin and Ted Haggard’s sexual sin — is all FRUIT of the NAR.
The FRUIT of Lakeland is fornication, adultery, lying and drunkenness.
Jesus tells us to judge false prophets by their FRUIT.
We know who Joyner and Bentley are because of their rotten FRUIT.
We all have sin, Mr. Joyner, so we could care less how you want to frame Todd Bentley now because you both need cash for your “ministries”.
The real question is, Mr. Joyner, how you and your friends “prophesied” so wrongly about Todd Bentley a 10 months ago.
You said, Mr. Joyner, that Todd’s revival was the great outpouring, was a great move of God.
So, repent, Mr. Joyner. Repent Mr. Wagner. Repent, Mr. Jones. Repent, James Goll. Repent Stacey Campbell. REPENT Bill Johnson. Repent Lou Engle.
REPENT, you liars of hell. You should be grateful for Todd’s critics, because someone is giving you the Gospel to save your own souls BEFORE you stand before your Judge!
REPENT RICK JOYNER
And HOW DARE YOU RICK JOYNER TRY TO RE INSTATE TODD BENTLEY TO MINISTRY WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS MINISTERS NEED TO BE OF “ONE WIFE!!!”
The Lord rebuke you, Satan.

P.S. CONCERNING “PASTOR STEVE GRAY IS AN IDIOT CLAIMING HE IS THE LEADING VOICE IN  REVIVAL” On Fri, Feb 1, 2013 at 11:56 AM, <info@westedge.org>  wrote:
Your opening line is, “their leaders are from the pits of hell and are devoid of “love” which is the mark of a true Christian”. Your title is ‘Steve Gray is an idiot’. Jesus said the world will know you’re His disciple by the love we have for one another. You are called to bring reconciliation and hope through love. Doing the right thing the wrong way is the devils work. That’s what the temptation of Jesus was during his fast and time with Satan. He tried to get Jesus to do the right thing the wrong way. I think you’re doing the right thing the wrong way by being so hateful towards others.

WALTER WROTE:
SINCE WHEN IS EXPOSING WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING AND DECEIVERS THE DEVIL’S WORK? IT ISN’T!

AND YOU ARE NOT TO LOVE OR SUPPORT WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING!

AND YOU DON’T RECONCILE WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING BUT YOU EXPOSE THEM JUST LIKE GOD’S WORD INSTRUCT US TO DO IN EPHESIANS 5 AND TITUS 1

GOD WILL RESTORE ALL YOUR LOSSES, JUST LIKE HE DID FOR JOB.  REMEMBER, JOB PRAYED FOR THOSE FRIENDS THAT WERE WRONG ABOUT HIM.

Let No One Deceive You

AA

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  “You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?  “Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.  “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.  “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  “Therefore by their fruits you will know them.   “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’  “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Matthew 7:15-23

Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them.   For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:  “Awake, you who sleep,  Arise from the dead,  And Christ will give you light.” Ephesians 5:6-14

If deception of Christians by empty words of deceivers were not possible then Apostle Paul would not warn Christians about it or that because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience and also tells us do not be partakers with them.

And scriptures doesn’t tell us that exposing the unfruitful works of darkness which are done by the sons of disobedience is wrong bur rather children of light are to become aware of them, expose them and to have no fellowship with the perpetrators of  evil, lies, deception and wickedness many of whom are goats not sheep! And God’s word is true:

“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:  ‘for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;  ‘I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’  “Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’  “And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matthew 25:41-46

Jesus taught that the goats who did not give him food when He was hungry, give him drink when He was thirsty, take Him in when He was a stranger, clothe Him when He was naked, visit Him when He was sick and in prison would go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. Yes, all those who did not minister to the least of one of these are unrighteous. And since Jesus wrote the rules and enforces them, they are in deep trouble.

Yes, Jesus taught that all His words were not to be ignored or there would be serious consequences.  He also told us to beware of men who would come as wolves in sheep’s clothing and would teach the doctrine of men as commandments of God (Matthew 16:9). He also taught:
·       ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God.’ ”
·       ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”
·       ‘You shall not tempt the LORD your God.’ ”

Yes, these are the keys to proper ministry and Christian living for God’s word is unchanging:

Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,  being tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended, He was hungry.  And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”  But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God.’ ”
Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.  And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. “Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.”  And Jesus answered and said to him, “Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”
Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here.  “For it is written:  ‘He shall give His angels charge over you,  To keep you,’  “and,  ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ” And Jesus answered and said to him, “It has been said, ‘You shall not tempt the LORD your God.’ ”
Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:1-13

Now godliness with contentment is great gain.  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.  But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.  Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:6-12

The enemy and men are great liars and deceivers and love to appeal to the lusts of men including mouthing words that sound nice and appear to true but have no basis in fact. In order to ensnare those who are gullible, even the righteous, the eloquent words that men speak about something must appear to be true and must have an element of truth in them. It’s a well known fact that if something appears too good to be true, then it’s not true. Even though many pastors and preachers have promised a hundred fold returns for money sowed into their ministries, very few, if any, of the sheep can testify that they have had a consistent hundred return fold from their giving into a particular ministry. Yet God’s word is unchanging:

“I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’  “How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart,  “who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal.  “The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream;  And he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully.  What is the chaff to the wheat?” says the LORD.  “Is not My word like a fire?” says the LORD,  “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
“Therefore behold, I am against the prophets,” says the LORD, “who steal My words every one from his neighbor.  “Behold, I am against the prophets,” says the LORD, “who use their tongues and say, ‘He says.’  “Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” says the LORD, “and tell them, and cause My people to err by their lies and by their recklessness. Yet I did not send them or command them; therefore they shall not profit this people at all,” says the LORD.  “So when these people or the prophet or the priest ask you, saying, ‘What is the oracle of the LORD?’ you shall then say to them, ‘What oracle?’ I will even forsake you,” says the LORD.  “And as for the prophet and the priest and the people who say, ‘The oracle of the LORD!’ I will even punish that man and his house. Jeremiah 23:25-34

Even though quite a few pastors and preachers prophecy false dreams and vision and cause God’s people to  err by their lies and by their recklessness, God did not send them or command them; therefore they shall not profit the people at all. And God will in due season punish those are false and those who listen to their lies.

We are to check everything that we hear about God and His word with His written word, the bible, and with the Holy Spirit. If it is really His word then there must be a confirmation with two witnesses and with miracles, signs and wonders – otherwise it not from God but from man or the devil.

It’s to be noted that Jesus never taught that worship:
·       Enhances the sense of unity
·       Ministers to one another
·       Teaches and reinforces spiritual truth

It is a fact that many songs sung in the Christian church are doctrinally unsound such as “I am a poor wayfaring stranger.’ True Christians are anything but poor. By faith all the riches and resources of heaven are available to them here in the current time of life. And Jesus promised everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for His name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life (Matthew 19:29, Mark 10:29).

Yes, some of the so called Christians songs are very depressing and have a form of godliness but deny its power.  Just because you sing lustily in the flesh for an hour in the church doesn’t mean the power of God will come down, no more than masses of people singing in a local bar! For the anointing to come down in any place, someone must be in tune with God and open to the anointing. Then God can express Himself the manifestation of the gifts of the Sprit.

I have personally seen the anointing of God come down in a church through an anointed singer and the senior pastor did not know what to do with it!  When the anointing was manifested, Jesus healed the sick, cast out devils, gave liberty to the captives, delivered the prisoners, comforted the mourners, healed the brokenhearted, and gave justice to the oppressed.  He didn’t use the time of collect the offering or talk about the churches building program but He ministered to the poor and needy? Of course when you measure yourself by yourself, you are doing things right? But when God and others measure you by His or their standard, you have probably missed the mark? God’s word is unchanging:

How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. If anyone speaks in a tongue, let there be two or at the most three, each in turn, and let one interpret. But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God.  Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge.  1 Corinthians 14:26-29

The Power Of Declaration

0c177-ce
Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.” Jeremiah 1:9
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. Mark 11:22-24
God created Adam and Eve in the beginning not only to live healthy, wealth and prosperous lives but to have dominion in the earthly realm, to have authority to make decrees on earth. However the devil deceived them and caused them not only to disobey God’s instructions, but to steal their dominion from them (Genesis 3). Their real failure caused all of us to live inferior and defeated lives, to suffer under the curse of sin and to lose our dominion over the earth. We also lost the power to make kingly decrees. However God did not leave us in this helpless estate forever! He sent Jesus Christ to redeem and rescue us (Isaiah 53). And He gave us His living word to come boldly before the throne of grace to obtain mercy and wisdom and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews. 4:16).
God not only restored all things that we had lost but has given us a better dominion than in the beginning. Our dominion includes the physical and spiritual dominion where we can take authority over the devil in the heavenly realm. As sons of God and joint heirs of God we have been given the keys of the kingdom of heaven and whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. We can also speak to any mountain and say ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and it will be done. But for many of God’s people this doesn’t work because they have failed to heed what Jesus told them:
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. John 15:4-8
We are to look to and abide in Jesus and His words and then we can make decrees that will work for God raised Jesus Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. So everything must bow at the decrees that are spoken in Jesus name as we speak what the Father tells us to speak. It’s to be noted that we have no choice but to abide in Christ or we will be defeated and even destroyed by the onslaught of the enemy that will come against us from Satan who is very jealous of us. We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore we must take up the whole armor of God, that we may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand (Ephesians 6:12-13). God’s word is unchanging:
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” Romans 10:8-13
Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:15-23
Everything that we get from God including the new birth must be first conceived in our spirit and then proclaimed with our mouth. But we cannot conceive in our spirit what has not been revealed to us! Hence we need to ask God to give us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead. Through anointed eyes and ears we need to learn to access the realm of heaven and live in the presence of God. We need to be marked by an element of heavenly DNA and atmosphere that we will carry with us so that the people might know and sense that we have been with God and heaven is our dwelling place. And for this we will even require many angelic visitations from the realm of heaven! God’s word is unchanging:
Now Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Haran. So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep. Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. And behold, the LORD stood above it and said: “I am the LORD God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. “Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.” Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.” Genesis 28:10-16
Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him. Matthew 4:11
But to which of the angels has He ever said: “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”? Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:13-14
We need an encounter with Jesus to see the promises of God’s word fulfilled in our hearts and lives. The rational ascent and belief in the Word of God will not cut it. Scriptures are meant to lead us to a supernatural encounter with God and His Son, His Holy Spirit and even His angels. God’s word is unchanging:
“But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. “You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. “But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life. John 5:38-40
Mighty promises of God in the bible are birthed and manifested on earth through those are who in direct fellowship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Believers can’t just go to the Word and claim the Lord’s promises and expect to see it happen just because they read them. God’s word says that we are “blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” (Ephesians 1:3).
In the intimacy with the Holy Spirit anything and everything is possible but without Him we can do and are nothing. Jesus Christ was totally dependent on the Holy Spirit for all things and so should we be. We must get to know the Holy Spirit! We are not to be afraid to worship the Third “Person” of the Godhead in addition to the Father and the Son. Holy Spirit is just as much God as the Father and the Son. God consists of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We need the intimacy of the Spirit for those who develop an intimate relationship and exchange with Holy Spirit will have the strongest anointing and power in their lives and ministry for it’s the Holy Spirit that brings the manifestation of heaven to earth! Yes, we need to fellowship with God, the Father, God, the Son, and God, the Holy Spirit, for then we will have our delight in the Almighty, and lift up our face to God. Then we will make our prayer to Him, He will hear us, and we will pay our vows. We will also declare a thing, and it will be established for us. God’s word is unchanging:
“Now acquaint yourself with Him, and be at peace; Thereby good will come to you. Receive, please, instruction from His mouth, And lay up His words in your heart. If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up; You will remove iniquity far from your tents. Then you will lay your gold in the dust, And the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brooks. Yes, the Almighty will be your gold And your precious silver; For then you will have your delight in the Almighty, And lift up your face to God. You will make your prayer to Him, He will hear you, And you will pay your vows. You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways. When they cast you down, and you say, ‘Exaltation will come!’ Then He will save the humble person. Job 22:21-29
We need to press into God as never before and get to know and experience Him more in all His facets. Then the glory of heaven, the deposits of heaven, will rest on us and will simply overflow and people will be filled with the Holy Spirit and be blessed by us. We will be vessels who cause heaven to invade earth. God’s word is unchanging:
“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19
“And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the LORD has said, Among the remnant whom the LORD calls. Joel 2:28-32

The Character of Jesus

OBAMA

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ ” And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:14-17

Jesus came to this earth and gave freely of Himself so others could receive that which they need. Jesus gave Himself in prayer and supplications to the Father.  He gave Himself in fastings.  He gave Himself in journeying from place to place, healing the sick and delivering those who were oppressed and possessed of the devil.  Then, Jesus gave Himself to die.  He gave everything for the redemption of mankind for soul, mind and body.  What a wonderful Savior He is! Today, Jesus is at the right hand of the Father interceding for us.  He has not changed; He is still giving to all who will receive His truth by faith.  He has the power to make all things new, and we can be renewed in body, soul and spirit daily.  He gives all things freely, so accept all that is needed today for us. And He desires that we be like Him.

The work unto which the servant of Christ is called is many-sided. Not only is he to preach the Gospel to the unsaved, to feed God’s people with knowledge and understanding ( Jeremiah 3:15), and to take up the stumbling stone out of their way ( Isaiah 57:14), but he is also charged to “Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins.” ( Isaiah 58:1) He is charged to “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.” (1 Timothy 4:2).  All these things are what Jesus did and not always in love.  However we say that love is blind because love sees only what it wants to see. Similarly many Christians only want to see the one side of Jesus the loving, gracious, compassionate side. They forget that He is God incarnate, manifest in the flesh who loves righteousness and justice. But the gospel of Matthew gives us a very nice perspective of the whole person of Jesus Christ who was quite outspoken and opinionated especially about those He didn’t like. It’s interesting that both Jesus and John the Baptist who were filled with the Holy Spirit from birth told the  Pharisees and Sadducees  that they were “Brood of vipers! God’s word is unchanging:

And John himself was clothed in camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey.  Then Jerusalem, all Judea, and all the region around the Jordan went out to him and were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? “Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, “and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.  “And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.  “His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Matthew 3:4-12

“Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Matthew 12:34

“Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? Matthew 23:33

Jesus Christ was unlike any other man of God or prophet before Him in the way He ministered to the masses. He  went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.  And  when they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics, He healed them. He told those who were poor in spirit,  who mourned,  were meek, merciful, pure in heart and peacemaker and those who hungered and thirsted for righteousness that they were blessed. But He warned those who didn’t repent that they were cursed and woe would come to them. God’s word is unchanging:

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ “But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. “Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, “leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.  “Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. “Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny. Matthew 5:21-26

Yes, Jesus warned the offenders and victimizers,  be they Christians or non-Christians, that unless they repented and made restitution they would suffer retribution and judgement in the current time of life.  And this is something that very few preachers ever talk about that many of God’s people put themselves into a prison of affliction, sickness, poverty, lossess, etc. because they have failed to heed the words of Jesus about the consequences of offending or victimizing others. If God’s people were only in tune with the Holy Spirit they would not do or say many of the things that they do for judgment begins at the house of God.  God’s word is unchanging:

Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters.  Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?  Now  “If the righteous one is scarcely saved,  Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?” Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:12-19

Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.   Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees,  and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.  Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:  looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears. Hebrews 12:12-17

When God chasten us, it’s not to cause us pain but to benefit from it and be healed and delivered.  We are to strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees,  and make straight paths for our feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.  We are to pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:  We are to look carefully lest awe  fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest become a fornicator or profane person like Esau. God is on our side and He wants the very best for us. He wants us to succeed and be prosperous but at the same time He needs to change or correct the things that are wrong in us that will cause harm to ourselves or to others. His word is unchanging:

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,  looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.   For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.  You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.  And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:  “My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD,  Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the LORD loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives.” Hebrews 12:1-8

Yes, in all things we are to look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. We are to lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. We are to live and walk in love and let brotherly love continue. We are not to forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. We are to remember and visit those who are in prison and in hospitals since they are flesh and blood just like our selves. We are to remember that marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. We are to remember that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever and  are  not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. We are to continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. We are not to forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. We are to obey those who rule over us, and be submissive, for they watch out for our souls. We are to pray for others that God would make them complete in every good work to do His will, working in them what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ. We are to hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.  And we are to consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, God’s word is unchanging:

Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,  by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,  and having a High Priest over the house of God,  let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.  Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.  And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:19-25

“He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”  “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.  “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.  But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”  And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:11-17

Gifts and Fruit of The Spirit

AB

I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification. 1 Corinthians 14:5

I thank my God I speak with tongues more than you all; 1 Corinthians 14:18

Amongst fundamentalist Christians there is a great sacred debate about how the bible is the inspired word of God. God so guided the authors of Scripture as to enable them to write exactly the words which convey His truth to men, and in doing so preserved their judgements from error in the original manuscripts. The Word of God as given to us in the Bible is a product of two free agents, human and divine. Through (fallible) human authors, God manifested the infallible and errorless writings, which convey His messages. And then these fools reject the gifts of the Spirit including tongues that the inspired word of God says is necessary to the Christian life! Now that doesn’t make sense at all! Yet God’s word is unchanging:

And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples  he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.”  And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.”  Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.”  When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.  And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. Acts 19:1-6

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.  For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.  But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men.  He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church.  I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification. 1 Corinthians 14:1-5

Many people have not learnt yet that soulish prayers are useless but prayers prayed in the Spirit are always answered by God because they orginate with God.  God the Father knew we would not know how to pray as we ought, that is why he filled us with the Holy Ghost and gave us a prayer language, (Rom. 8:26,27). Some of our prayers are not answered because we ask improperly, but when we pray in tongues we know that we  are praying according to the will of God. God’s word is unchanging:
Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.  For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:6-7

Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel.  Therefore let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.  What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding. 1 corinthians 14:12-15

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,  to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 1 Corinthians 12:7-10

God has called His people to walk in love and understanding. He wants them to be  unified and in agreement because that is when they are most effective for the kingdom. But the enemy stirs up strife and confusion through foolish words from an uncontrolled tongue. God’s word is unchanging:
An ungodly man digs up evil,  And it is on his lips like a burning fire.  A perverse man sows strife,  And a whisperer separates the best of friends.  Proverbs 16:27-28

Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.  Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh.   Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.  For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.  But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.  Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. James 3:10-18

Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.  1 Peter 3:7

Yes divisions including between a man and wife hinder our prayers when we don’t walk in love and understanding. Our prayers are answered when we walk in the power of agreement and unity.   We are called  to walk worthy of our calling with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. We are called to balance the gift of the Spirit with the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. God’s word is unchanging:
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,  idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.  And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. Galatians 5:19-26

Yes, the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,  idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, self-control,  And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, we must also walk in the Spirit, not in the flesh!

God has never planned nor intended that the gifts and fruit of the Spirit lay dormant in the lives of His people. When He gave them His only begotten Son, Jesus, and His wonderful counselor the Holy Spirit, He had planned that they would walk in love and adorn their lives with the single fruit of the Spirit including love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. He had willed that they should be ‘filled with the fruits of righteousness’ (Philippians 1:11). They should be ‘neither barren nor unfruitful’ (2 Peter 1:8). “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth.” (Ephesians 5:9)

God has given His people the fruits of the Spirit only with a view to fill us with the qualities of goodness, righteousness and truth. The gifts of the Spirit and the fruits are to go hand in hand together with love being the unifying force because God’s word is unchanging:

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18

“Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” Ephesians 1:4
“Let love be without hypocrisy.” Romans 12:9

“Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith.”1 Timothy 1:5

Yes, the fruits of the Spirit come from love born out of a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith. That is why God works on us to develop in us a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith so that the great fountain of Love will spring in us, only if Love is genuinely born in our hearts, the fruits of the Spirit will emerge in us. A man with mere ‘Gifts’ is not an effective man. Only with two wings can a bird fly; the loss of even a single wing will hamper its flight.[i]

We are not perfect if Gifts and Fruits don’t work together in unison in our Spiritual life. We need to allow ‘love’ to flow from our minds by the power and anointing of the Spirit. We need to continually walk and live in the Spirit and not in the flesh.  Yes we need for God to fill us with His Spiritual ‘Gifts’ and decorate us with the ‘Fruits’ so we can minister by the Spirit to a lost, hurt, and dying humanity that is need of the demonstration of God’s power. God’s word is unchanging:

Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.  And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.  And there was great joy in that city. Acts 8:5-8

And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.  For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.  And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,  that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:1-5

Yes, our Lord Jesus Christ has authority over all the evils. Many times, the devil brings sicknesses to us. He enters into our body and dwells in us. Lord Jesus Christ came into this sinful world to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). He destroyed the devil on the Cross of Calvary and overcame him. According to Philippians 2:10, “At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.” God wants the might, which was in Jesus, to be in us too! When Jesus sojourned on this earth, He gave His authority to His twelve disciples and asked them to go and heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out demons (Matthew 10:8; Luke 9:2). As He said, they received His authority and performed miracles.

Yes, the power of God operating through a yielded vessel walking love can do in a split second that years of perspiration cannot do including healing a broken heart, removing cancer from a sick body,  giving sight to the blind, and setting free the oppressed and possessed. Yes, Our heavenly Father gives His Holy Spirit to those who ask Him (Luke 11:13). We need to pray earnestly that the Lord should grant us a mighty anointing of His Holy Spirit and help us to shine as a witness for Christ in the days to come.(Acts 1:8 & 2:17).

We can also receive God’s Spirit and do His ministry with signs and wonders.  We can come to the creator of Heaven and Earth, our Almighty God and surrender ourselves completely. We can ask Him to heal all our physical, emotional and spiritual ailments. Relieve us from all the bondages of the flesh. Fill us with His Holy Spirit in Jesus name and grant us His strength and might so that we can be a channel of blessing to others. And meet and supply all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Our God is an embodiment of great love and compassion. When we fear and obey Him, He will grant us rich blessings. He knows our heart’s desires and yearnings. He will fulfill all our desires. We can pour out all our cares and worries at the feet of Lord Jesus. He loves and cares for us. He intercedes for us to the Heavenly Father and meets all our needs. God will always remember us and save us from destruction.

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:12-13

My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.  He only is my rock and my salvation;  He is my defense;  I shall not be moved.  In God is my salvation and my glory;  The rock of my strength,  And my refuge, is in God. Trust in Him at all times, you people;  Pour out your heart before Him;  God is a refuge for us. Selah Psalm 62:5-8
