Being filled....

>> Friday, May 22, 2009

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of 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 by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. (Ephesians 3:14-21 KJV)

Paul is writing that we woul be strenghened by the Spirit in our inner man. Inner man is soul-conscienceness. That we would be made strong in that Christ may dwell in our hearts. to dwell, settle
a) metaph. divine powers, influences, etc., are said to dwell in his soul, to pervade, prompt, govern it

by faith. That Christ may influence through divine powers, pervade, prompt and govern your heart by faith or trusting Him that he can. If we have trusted this deeply we may be rooted and grounded in his love and able to comprehend with all the saints the depth of his love.

To know the love of Christ... to know the love of know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge that we might be filled with ALL the fulness of God.

Not only to know the love the depth of love of Christ that passeth our knowledge but that we might be filled with ALL the fulness of God! Whoa, Wow, and wow. Filled filled to full, cause to abound with the fulness (filled of abundance, keeping) of God. A walking testiment of the evidence of His fulness is such godliness and holiness but not perfection, never perfection until taken home. A heart that is obedient, yeilded and desirest to display the fulness of God. Ummmm I am still on the know the love, I am afraid my tiny mind cannot come to understand how deep that love is. I am desperate to know, I want to know the love of Christ that passes my understanding.

Now unto him that is able, that is able to do exceeding, abundantly ABOVE ALL, ABOVE ALL that we ask or think, according to the POWER THAT WORKETH IN US!

Being filled with the fullness of God will be most noticeable! The evidence of the work of God in ones life will be a power and a filling that leads to supernatural evidences that God is alive, real and working in and through us.

This evidence will display the fruit of the Spirit, love, forgiveness and desire for unity as the next chapter leads into. The most remarkable enlightenment comes from obedience and to know the love Christ to the point we are filled with ALL the fullness of God.

What more can we say, this passage places me in AWE of what God has yet to do in these last days. May we all desire to be filled with all the fullness of God.

To know God more is to abide in Him more. If we ask ourselves is the fullness of God radiating from our lives what would be our answer? Are we desperate for Jesus? If not, what is going on in our lives that is keeping us from pursuing God and being filled with His fullness? May the conditions of our hearts be right before God and that we understand the power of His fellowship.


Sinner, Meet the Savior

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all long-suffering, for a pattern to them which should here after believe on Him to life everlasting. 1 Timothy 1:15-16

I recall a time in the not so distant past when The Lord was drawing me out of the sinfulness I had been bound to for so long, and back into His arms. During that time, He began to work on my heart and clearly define a path for my life. He did not reveal the entire path, just the way to the next few steps to walk in. And, I was paralyzed. ............................

I charge thee....

>> Sunday, May 17, 2009

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. (2 Timothy 4:1-8 KJV)

We are charged before God and Jesus to; Preach the Word; be instant (be ready) in season (when it is convenient) and out of season (when it is not convenient); reprove (bring to light, convict sin or wrong doing) rebuke ( charge sharply) exhort (encourage, strengthen, instruct and teach) with all longsuffering and doctrine. We have been charged with all these things. Paul is writing to Timothy possibly his last words a warning of things to come and how to prepare for them.

This same message is for us today. We must be obedient to do these things through the Holy Spirit because the time will come when others will not endure sound doctrine (we see this now everywhere!!!) after their own lust shall heap to themselves teachers that will teach only what they want to hear. In other words, watering down the message to make them feel comfortable about themselves, no thought of sin nor repentance, no gospel of truth,believing there are many ways to God and heaven. They shall turn away their ears from the truth....

They shall turn away, meaning they have once been with the truth and they turned from it to follow fables. Paul tells us even while all this is going on around us today, we are to:
Watch in all things (be aware of the evil and cunning lies of the enemy) endure afflictions ( do not run from them stand fast in your faith, stand courageous for truth and righteousness) do the work of an evangelist ( share the truth) make full proof of the ministry. SHOW PEOPLE GOD WORKS!!! EVIDENCE THE FULL PROOF OF JESUS CHRIST'S MINISTRY.

How do we know this applies to us as well? ALL SCRIPTURE is given... for instruction. Through obedience the blessings come and if, if, if, we obey. God says, If you, I will.

Let us be looking and in love with His appearing!!


Do you Believe this?

>> Saturday, May 16, 2009

But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:10-17 KJV)

Paul says, you have known my doctrine, the way I live, my purpose, my faith, I am longsuffering, I love others, I am patient. He has been persecuted and afflicted, even to the depths of how severe his torture was, God delivered him. The verses before these went over the warning of the apostasy and how bad things will get, he tells us that evil men will be worse deceiving and they themselves will be more deceived. He says do not get caught up in all of this;
Continue in the things which you have learned from him in the holy scriptures which is able to make you wise.
ALL scripture, not some, not a little, but ALL scripture is given by God and is profitable for knowing your doctrine, WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE? Make sure you believe the truth of God's Word and not man's twisted conception of it. Even in the simplest quotes like God helps those that help themselves. This is not biblical nor is it true. God clearly shows throughout His Word He helps those who are helpless. The scriptures explain how to reproof someone biblical, it is our guideline and helps correct us when we are wrong and for the greatest purpose of all it is our instruction for righteousness through faith in Christ Jesus!

If we do not believe the Word is used for the purposes it states we are in great danger. Being obedient to God's view on life and not the worlds is a big switch from what we are surrounded with through lies and deception.

He tells us all this for this exhortation! That the man of God my be perfect, thoroughly furnished or finished perfectly unto all good works. When we are surrendered and obedient filled with the Holy Spirit, we are just empty vessels for the Spirit to do His perfect good works through us. However if we resist Him, we can still do "good" works but it is no longer His work, it is ours which will burn no matter how good it is. God shares His glory with no one, the good works of the Holy Spirit through us is most definitely different than the good works we run around crazy trying to do for ourselves.

This know also, in the last days.... we are in the last days. Those who live godly IN Jesus, yielded to the Holy Spirit shall suffer persecution... regardless..... continue in what you learned and is taught by Paul through the scriptures and do not let anyone tell you different.... ALL scripture is given for.... ALL of it, now, ALL of it. It wasn't even finished in the church age, it is completed and given ALL of it for us today. For the purpose that we be made perfect unto His good works.

Lord, help us all to trust in your Word completely, not adding our opinions, nor taking away what we feel uncomfortable with. May we allow the Holy Spirit to be our teacher in all things and obey Him instantly for your glory. Help us Father, keep us from the enemies lies, the deception of evil men and the falling away of those who claim Jesus. Strengthen your Body with pouring out of the Holy Spirit to endure those things which are to come. Prepare us for the spiritual battle that is to come. May we all in Christ Jesus be girded up in the Word, knowing the truth and allowing that truth to set us free! In the Matchless Name of Jesus, Amen!

PS: An encouragement let us not not get caught up in those who do wrong and are deceived, let us just continue in what God has called us to do, be obedient, faithful, study your Word and love others. This is what Paul is saying, stay focused on what God puts before you and do not get taken down by the deception and lies of men.


To Believe or Not Believe that is the Question!

>> Friday, May 15, 2009

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, {false...: or, one who foments strife} Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. {reprobate: or, of no judgment} But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. (2 Timothy 3:1-9 KJV)

In the last days there shall be perilous times or in the Greek, we can say the last days hard to do, hard to bear, troublesome, dangerous, fierce and savage times shall come. If I may speak from my own experience we in America have yet to see this come to its full extend but we are in the birth pangs of it. For the scriptures reveal the following:

  • Men shall be lovers of self-selfish coveteous- covet money and material things or what someone else has relationship wise
  • boasters-an empty pretender now that's a more powerful statement the Greek is good.
  • proud-showing one's self above others, over topping, conspicuous above others
  • pre-eminent.... with an overweening estimate of one's means or merits, despising others or even treating them with contempt
  • haughty blasphemers-speaking evil, slanderous, reproachful, railing, abusive
  • disobedient to parents
  • unthankful, unholy without natural affections
  • truce breakers-without a treaty or covenant of things not mutually agreed upon e.g. abstinences from hostilities... that cannot be persuaded to enter into a covenant, implacable
  • False accusers prone to slander, slanderous, accusing falsely a calumniator, false accuser, slanderer,metaph. applied to a man who, by opposing the cause of God, may be said to act the part of the devil or to side with him
  • incontinent-without self control
  • fierce -savage despisers of those that are good
  • opposers of possibly due to jealousy
  • traitors -betrayers, Judas
  • Heady -irrational
  • high minded -typhoo in the Greek to be puffed up with pride to be foolish or stupid

lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God

We can say we see this happening all around us, there may even be a few of these we are guilty of. Look over this list and examine your heart that you may not fall into these categories that God warns us will be evident in the last days. the next verses are sobering and real to the believers heart. First, Lord forgive me for any of these sins, I repent and desire that the condition of my heart be right before you and others. Here is what concerns me the most as we have seen many after these traits and actually the following is more serious:

Having the form of godliness ( or looking like you fit the part) but denying the power thereof. Denying is also refusing or disregarding the power. How many "Christians" do you know that live defeated lives? They have rendered themselves powerless, they come to church, they stay active in service, they even pray out loud, but demonstrate no power of the Holy Spirit in their lives. He says; from such turn away.

What is the condition of their heart? The evidence will be shortly revealed through their words because what is in a heart comes out the mouth. Also under fire will reveal the depths of the heart as well. Scriptures tell us to turn away from these people.These people are ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Folks, if we are stuck in this position the key is to BELIEVE! Receive the Word of Truth and live it.

These people are like those before Moses, they resist the truth, reprobates concerning the faith. they shall not proceed any further, before their folly shall be revealed unto all men. God will reveal the false.It would benefit us to obey, trust and live out the scriptures so that we understand the times.

Just because I walk into a Garage doesn't make me an auto-mechanic,, just because I walk into church doesn't make me a christian.A Christian is a believer of Jesus Christ, His Word, and obeys with conviction from the Holy Spirit. A Christian is one who seeks to love God more than anything else, family, friends, "church" "service" "ministry". Love God with all your heart soul and mind and you wont have room for anything else.

Ever learning, and NEVER able to come to the knowledge of the truth???????? Let not that be said about us. Let us pray and seek God diligently! All scripture is given for doctrine, reproof, correction, instruction in righteousness. We need to be in the scriptures to know what they say. Study to show thyself approved unto God..... May we desire a lifestyle that illuminates the power of the Holy Spirit, brings joy to those around us and demonstrates to the unbeliever that God is not only real He works!!!!!

What do you believe?

>> Saturday, May 9, 2009

I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:1-3 KJV)

So often we say we believe in the Lord Jesus, we believe His Words and yet we seem to stumble in the darkness to obey. Paul is saying here, I beseech you, instruct, encourage, call for that you walk worthy of your divine invitation with that you are called. And as you walk worthy of that divine calling, walk in lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another, not just forbearing, forbearing one another in LOVE.

The scriptures tell us if we love Him we will keep His commandments (John 14:15). Are we believing this to be the Words of the Lord exhorting us on our behavior towards one another? Do we have the evidence of love towards all? If not it is not genuine to even the few. Love.... Love.....Love of Jesus is pure and easily to be entreated by all. Paul goes on to say Endeavor, exert one's self, give diligence to keep the unity or the bonds that bind together in the Spirit in the bond of peace, harmony, security, and safety.

Paul knew if we could do this in LOVE then we would build a bond of sweet fellowship that is unbreakable. Something that once we believe to be true, would understand the importance of obedience that would bring blessings and answers to prayer. Anything outside of this truth hinders the work of the Lord, not only to the rebellious christian but also to the body of Christ. The ripple effect! Shouldnt that sober us for a desire not to hinder "God" working? Who in their right mind would want that accountability.We know the evidence of Spirit moving because verse 4 tells us there is ONE, just one of the following:

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. (Ephesians 4:4-7)If we are not yielded to the Oneness of the Spirit we are not under the Holy Spirit, we are under false, deceptive spirits. We are given the same exhortations to do right, regardless of feelings and emotions. We are called in the same hope, Jesus Christ, the same Spirit, the Holy Spirit the same body, Jesus, one God, one faith.

Why do we divide the truth for division, why are we not multiplying the solution!!!!! We cannot ignore the truths of God's Word. How do we move about in ourselves, justifying anything opposite of what we are called to do. We either BELIEVE this to be truth or not. If we believe it, we will embrace it, be obedient to it and love the blessings that comes from trusting in it. However, if we are causing disunity, not loving the brethren, backbiting, gossiping, slander, jealously, envying, whatever, we are under the spirit of bondage and prisoned within our own hearts.
To be set free, even as a believer, you must BELIEVE.


10 Reasons to Believe.... yeah 11 to celebrate!

>> Thursday, May 7, 2009

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. (Isaiah 41:10-13)

Is this verse not amazing?! Fear not (1) for I AM with thee (2) be not dismayed; for I AM thy God (3) I will strengthen thee (4) yea I will help thee (5) I will uphold thee with the RIGHT hand of my righteousness (6) all against thee shall be ashamed and confounded (7) they enemy shall be as nothing (8) they that strive with thee shall perish (9) you wont find them (10)

He holds our hand, He holds our right hand, God holds our right hand, do we see this, are we reading this, are we understanding this? God holds our right hand. If you had a body guard who was 6'6tall and 250lbs of big, bad, and bossy would you fear?
How much more should we not fear because GOD holds our right hand? Girls are we getting the power in this, oh my!!!!!!! We have spent countless hours fearful, anxious, overwhelmed....for what???????? please help us.....we are wasting time, energy, emotions and victories over circumstances.

The God of the universe has clearly spoken truth, confidence, and power over us, that He would hold our right hand. There is NO REASON to fear, for He will help us. Do we believe this scripture? What is the evidence of our trust? Do we stand strong on a sure foundation, or are we weak, weary, and fearful of our circumstances? example:

Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. (Matt 17:19-20)

It does not take much to believe, its a choice. Won't you choose to be victorious in Jesus today!

If God be for us who could be against us (Rom 8:31) Hallelujah What A Savior!



>> Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (John 6:28-29)

How many of us ask ourselves what is the work of God for us? How do we fit in the bigger plan for the Kingdom of God? This verse is the answer to just that. You see, the work of God cannot be fruitful, nor productive through self. In other words if we are serving on our own strength, coming up with our own plans, and running the rat race it is considered "our work" and not the "work of God". Here is the key: THAT YOU BELIEVE ON HIM WHOM HE HATH SENT. That may seem to easy to just believe, consider this:

You will not stand up for something you do not believe in: you will not promote, share, nor bear it! If we do not fully believe with all of our heart, the Word of God to be truth, we will be paralyzed, fearful and defeated in our walk with Him. We must believe in order to move forward with power and confidence.

Many "Christians" say they are embarrassed or shy away from standing for Jesus, almost as if they were ashamed to proclaim they are Christians. How does so many that claim Jesus, lack the power, desire and assurance of Jesus? Could the answer trace back to what they believe?

Many of us believe: the lies we have been brought up with, the lies our "religions" have told us, our "traditions", our false perceptions, and the strong pull of the enemy. Unfortunately, lies distort the truth just a bit and take away from trusting in Him.

The only way to reverse the lies is to envelope yourself in His Truth. Spending quiet time with the Lord will make all the difference in what you hear and obey!!! The evidence of God's power in our lives is not in what we say, but what our actions reveal.

What do you believe in?

The people believed God....not Jonah....

>> Tuesday, May 5, 2009

And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey. {exceeding: Heb. of God} And Jonah began to enter into the city a day's journey, and he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. (Jonah 3:1-5 KJV)

This was my Morning Word this morning: The word of the Lord came unto Jonah a second time. (The word of the Lord comes to us as well. When we are abiding, we can clearly hear. When we are busy we have a tendancy to miss His gentle whisper). We know the first time came when Jonah got his official orders to go to Ninevah and he rebelled and went to Joppa instead. There God had to get a hold of Jonah to renegotiate the deal. So we see a "second time" being a second chance and Jonah being obedient. A day into the city Jonah cries out YOU WILL BE OVERTHROWN. He brings warnings.... the people do what? The people of Nineveh believed Jonah? ummmm, No, they believed God.

See when we are obedient to God's direction, there will be evidence it is not of man but of God. The wicked people of Nineveh recognized the Spirit of God in Jonah and therefore yielded to the Spirit of God, not man. The Spirit of God moved Jonah to the place of being the messenger and the people clearly acknowledged that God moves through man. How about that. So if we find that as we are abiding in the Lord and God gives us orders to move out and others yield, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US! It is totally the Spirit of God in us drawing. We are just the empty vessel housing the God of the universe to partake in the most amazing supernatural occurrences we could ever hope to see and be apart of. However, DANGER ZONE we must remember, I, me, have nothing to do with the work, other than showing up and then watching God show off!!!
May you experience the Voice of God and follow with complete obedience to partake in the most amazing supernatural blessings one eyes could set themselves upon!!! Repentance is the blessing in this passage... may we all have a heart to yield to that.
Joyfully His,
