WORSHIP UNTO THE ONE TRUE GOD RESTORES RAIN TO A NATION

WORSHIP UNTO GOD CAN RESTORE RAIN TO A NATION

16 Oct 19

IF ANY WANTS TO SERVE THIS NATION – MAKE RIGHT WITH the TRUE GOD.

This applies to all of us.

A Nation or a people who trusts in God can enter into His REST. Such a Nation or people can also receive, to enjoy, His protection & Covenant Blessings according to His Promises; by default!

  • SHARING IN PART –

The Lord has laid a deep concern in my heart and imprinting that the current DROUGHT has a GOD PRINCIPLE implicating. This is not solely the reason, yet it links up our Government and the Presidency, as the responsible entity in office, the head of State – the head of this South African NATION.

Such, has ‘cut’ PEACE connections with Israel in bowing to humanistic, political, economic and cultural pressures. This decision is in clear opposite to OBEDIENCE to the Word of God and the Worship of the ONLY ONE TRUE GOD.

A logical result from this action taken by our Government – a COLLECTIVE Governmental LEADERSHIP, who takes RESPONSIBILITY for this Nation and makes the final decisions – is the consequential REFRAINING from TRUE WORSHIP to the ONE TRUE GOD.

This resulting in South Africa to stand in DISFAVOUR, AS A WHOLE NATION, before the CREATOR; and therefore, (in part) closed up for the blessings and favour of God Eternal.

HE ALONE is the giver of ALL LIFE; which includes the BLESSING of LIFE GIVING RAIN on our NATION. (see scriptures below)

◇ SCRIPTURAL PERSPECTIVE AND TERMINOLOGY:

Therefore, as we interpret this from a Scriptural perspective, our Government, and specifically the king/our President, as the head and responsible person (see Ps 21) can’t be a blessing to the nation… and we can’t walk in the blessings of God as a nation.

  • Blessings, which include the blessing of rain, financial prosperity, social and governmental stability.

◇ IF ANYONE WANTS TO SERVE THIS NATION – MAKE RIGHT WITH GOD.
Again, this applies to all citizens of this nation.

◇ OUR RESPONSIBILITIES

A.▪ THE CHRIST BELIEVING CITIZEN’S RESPONSIBILITY:

  • Let us then STAND in the GAP and REPENT for the sins of this nation’s Government and PRAY for the peoples.
  • Let us pray for their hearts to open up to God’s wisdom and council.

B.▪ A CALL TO THE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSIBILITIES:

Let the BELIEVING CITIZENS of this Nation CALL UPON our GOVERNMENTAL LEADERS to:

REPENT of their HOSTILITY towards Israel and REFRAINING OF ACKNOWLEDGING YAHWEH, the Great I am, as the One True God;

  • Let us PRAY for RESTORATION of such RELATIONS and the PROTECTION of FREE WORSHIP to the GOD of Israel; – REPENT for ALL FORMS of unrighteous BLOODSHED;
  • Let us PRAY for the RESTORATION of such laws & the re-instating of the protection of ALL LIFE of man and all things created.

REPENT for ALLOWING the VIOLATION of the SANCTITY of THE BRIDE; MARRIAGE and ALL RELATIONSHIPS RELATING TO FAMILY;

  • Let us PRAY for the RESTORATION and employment of all legislation for the PROTECTION of the ENTTITY of the FAMILY; as GOD designed it.

REPENT for neglecting SERVICES to the citizens of this Nations, purely because of the DISOBEDIENCE to God’s STATUTES, PRINCIPLES and (WISE) COUNCIL to the king; resulting in a lawless, greedy, disrespectful, corrupt, truth-less and a selfish society;

  • Let us PRAY for the conviction of the hearts in our Leaders, by the power of the Holy Spirit to return to the One True God.

C.▪ THE BODY OF CHRIST:

  • Let the BODY OF CHRIST UNITE IN TRUE WORSHIP OF THE ONE TRUE GOD, the MESSIAH, the Lord Jesus Christ, who came to save the world. He also came to die for the SALVATION OF THIS NATION, TODAY. (Hebr 2 to 4)

Let us UNITE IN PRAYER:

  • TO BRING HONOUR TO HIM ALONE; for HE said there are no other gods like Him.
  • TO REFRAIN FROM OUR OWN STUBBORNNESS, cultural, humanistic and church-political deviations and divisions; TO Worship God in Unison.
  • TO RETURN TO THE WORSHIP OF GOD, the Father and the Son through the Holy Spirit within.
  • TO REPENT for the sad and compromising state of affairs in the Body of Christ and the CHURCH establishment.
  • TO PRAY for ALL who call themselves Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, to return to the TRUTH and sound doctrine in His WORD.

◇ CONCLUSION:

  • Yet, God, the God of the Whole Universe, STILL KEEPS US IN HIS MERCY and GRACE; for our God has not forsaken us completely,…
  • There are still Prayers going up to His Throne. There are still believing, trusting hearts in His faithfulness over us.
  • GOD IS A SOVEREIGN GOD… HE HAS the SOUTH AFRICAN Nation as part of His End Time plan to be a SAFE HAVEN for the World.

Let us PRAY that into being.

  • THE SACRIFICE Christ paid has completely removed our separation from God, in order for us to freely come…; and AS WE willingly RETURN TO HIM.
  • Let this NATION RETURN to the Living God in TRUE WORSHIP and ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of HIS SOVEREIGNTY over us.
  • LET US ARISE IN HIS GRACE; RIGHTEOUSNESS, JOY, PEACE, HOPE, TRUST and FAITH in our GOD.
  • FOR HE HAS OVERCOME sin and death, He IS ADVANCING with the Hosts of Heaven on our behalf.

He is coming as THE ETERNAL SAVIOUR of the World… also for RSA.

◇ SCRIPTURE references:

  • And it shall be that whoso of the families of the earth shall not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, upon them there shall be no rain.
    Zechariah 14:17

  • THE KING [David] shall joy in Your strength, O Lord; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
    You have given him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
    For You send blessings of good things to meet him; You set a crown of pure gold on his head. His glory is great because of Your aid; splendor and majesty You bestow upon him. For You make him to be blessed and a blessing forever; You make him exceedingly glad with the joy of Your presence. For the king trusts, relies on, and is confident in the Lord, and through the mercy and steadfast love of the Most High he will never be moved. Psalm 21:1 – 3 , 5 – 7
  • [Therefore beware] brethren, take care, lest there be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving heart [which refuses to cleave to, trust in, and rely on Him], leading you to turn away and desert or stand aloof from the living God.
    But instead warn (admonish, urge, and encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called
    Today, that none of you may be hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [by the fraudulence, the stratagem, the trickery which the delusive glamor of his sin may play on him].
    Then while it is [still] called Today, if you would hear His voice and when you hear it, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion [in the desert, when the people provoked and irritated and embittered God against them]. [Ps. 95 :7, 8.]
    So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [unbelief had shut them out].
    Hebrews 3: 12 – 13 , 15 , 19 Ampl

27. EXPOSITION ON LIFE’S QUEST IN TRIALS

HOW DO WE MAKE SENSE OF BAD THINGS HAPPENING TO GOOD PEOPLE?

Sickness, desease, brokenness, disaster, death, wickedness, all evil, unrighteous living and any form of sin… are definitely not God’s will for us or form part of His Covenantal blessing for us. But, we live in a fallen world and are therefore subject to it.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE

Sin came through a choice that man made, in the freedom God gave him to choose. God in His desire to have a relationship with us created us with a free will, enabling us to make our own choices.

He gave man a choice to choose to Love Him and to choose that by his free will. He did not enforce it on us… therefore, He gave man by default also the choice to reject Him and to sin. LOVE is a choice; no enforcement can apply.

AUTHORITY LOST AND GAINED

Adam chose to disobey God’s instruction and through His choice, all of creation became subject to that choice, which plunged all of mankind into a fallen and sinful state. From our birth we are received into this fallen, sinful world.

In the Garden of Eden man also lost his authority. At that point this was handed over to satan. When God send His Only Son to earth – for the redemption of mankind back to the heart of the Father, God gave ALL AUTHORITY back to Christ.

Therefore, as we step into God’s redemptive option to choose Christ, to be IN Him and to receive the New Covenant Position that He attained for us, we also regain our place of authority; but this time it is only as we are In Him.

(Again, we are sharing IN PART)

THERE ARE 2 PARTS TO THIS STORY

a. OUR PART

The word says: ‘Because of a lack of knowledge (of God) my people perish… that calls for all areas of our lives to be subjected to the knowledge of God.

Hos 4:6
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge,...

COMMENTARY ON THIS SCRIPTURE ; Mathhew Henry’s Commentary

“The people strove with the priests that should have taught them the knowledge of God; justly therefore were they destroyed for lack of knowledge, Hos_4:6.
Note, Those that rebel against the light can expect no other than to perish in the dark. This can also serve as a charge upon the priests, who should have been still teaching the people knowledge (Ecc_12:9). …
so there was no knowledge of God in the land; and because there was no vision, or none to any purpose, the people perished…” Pro_29:18.

In application to the context of the title to this exposition re. “…Life’s Quest in Trials…” we now come to “The knowledge of God”:

The knowledge of GOD for victorious living

As Christ fills ALL things with Himself, we desperately need His knowledge of Himself to be revealed to us in the different situations and areas of our lives, enabling us to live our lives in the full knowledge and revelation of WHO HE is FOR US in every trial, situation and quest.


Pro 29:18
18 Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law.

As the crown of God’s creation, we should constantly be looking at our Creator for wisdom and guidance in everything pertaining to this life He granted us. Yet, we have rejected Him, and often are still not interested in learning from God, His ways.

Man would rather follow his own discretion and human acquired knowledge – through his God given intellect, than to yield to our Creator’s Manuel & obediently submit to His statutes and Holy Spirit – within us – for guidance & His ULTIMATE wisdom.

Most of us suffer from a severe plague of pride, stubbornness and self righteousness. Even when earthly wisdom comes our way, from any avenue but our own preferred place of submission, we would get severely aggrivated or self righteous. We would rather stay in rebellious stubborness than to humble ourselves & follow good advice. Funny enough this happens mostly on the topics of health, relationships, finance and faith; where life’s biggest challenges also lie.

Knowledge of God through Spirit Revelation

We can sought out God’s REVELATORY WISDOM and also gather intellectual KNOW-HOW and knowledge on any given area of FAITH & LIFE in general. Such to help us in this physical life as well as in the “working out of our salvation”.

The knowledge of God, sought out in His presence through the Holy Spirit’s help – bring His wisdom & His revelation for every situation and quest we face in life. This will lead us steadily through the many processes in life towards the reward of eternal life.

GOD IS LOVE and because of that LOVE, He created man to have fellowship with us, eternally. He gave us life to love us & be loved by us and to fascilitate His rule and reign here on earth. Surely He would not have created us with thie mission at hand just to leave us stranded in our own weaknesses, without help or ability to live this life to the full. He also gave us life to LIVE for the honour and glory of His Name and therefore grants us His wise council on creation and our quest. See Ps 139:13-17

Psa 139:13-17
13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!

Apart from our own choices, only God knows why one would become a king and another a pauper… why we are who we are, and why things befall us…

OUR SON-SHIP IDENTITY

Our Tongues play a VERY NB part in our IDENTITY, WELLBEING and DESTINY.
God created by words/sound. He has given us the same ability to create in the power of Jesus’s Name.

The demonic forces and workers of evil, iniquity and unrighteousness, have the same ability to design & create through their evil exploits. Therefore our words of life – in agreement with what God says about us and our circumstances need to replace and be actively part of our desitiny.

Our lack of understanding our position as SONS (dual gender) of the MOST HIGH GOD, restrains us from taking up our authority and to step into reigning with Christ. This position of reigning and living through His authority in us, can only happen as we STAY ABIDING and HIDDEN IN Him.
We often move out of His boundary of GRACE, BLESSING and AUTHORITY through our ignorant choices, rebellion – that is as witchcraft – and sin; as well as our lack of the knowledge of God.

In our Son-ship identity we need to know God (to know God is eternal life), and to know our position in Christ – which is a mystery, NOW REVEALED to us through the Holy Spirit ( Col 2 to 3 ).

This knowledge of God enables us to stand and live by our new identity IN HIS FINISHED work on the cross and IN Him; where we are seated at the Right Hand of the Father, hidden IN Christ.

When we move outside this hidden SANCTUARY of God’s knowledge, strength, wisdom & grace, our lives are exposed to the radar of the enemy.

As Christ was loved by the Father, we are loved and covered in EXACTLY the same love of the Father… (Jhn17). Everything He provided Christ with – to live His purpose – is at our disposal. We ought to embrace this in a Father-Childlike relationship; to experience the Father’s love here on earth in preperation of our eternal abode. We can and should then also extend it to others.

OUR Son-SHIP IDENTITY has been secured in the LOVE of the Father. Just as HE loved Christ, He loves us. He therefore redeemed, sanctified & glorified us to a SON-SHIP position; of which Christ is the first-born.

b. GOD’S PART

CHRIST came to earth to restore mankind back into a relationship with the Father. , through a New Covenant.

HIS REDEMPTIVE WORK is PERFECT.

He suffered. He conquered sin and death. He rose and ascended.

He now intercedes constantly for us. He is our Advocate in the Heavenly Courts.

His bountiful grace is helping us through this life.
He suffered on earth; we will also have part in His sufferings…

Dying was the HIGHLIGHT of His ‘CAREER’… Dying to self – that comes through all these trials that we experience – HELPS US towards that place of salvation from self, towards salvation in Christ, and towards eternal life; then eternally with Him.

Because of His love for us, knowing our frailty & sinful nature, God also tests us to see what is in our hearts, in order to present us one day tested & standing firm in His own righteousness. ( See Eccl 7 below)

ALL THINGS FOR THE GOOD

Rom 8:28
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Yet, our disobedience does hamper the process; but as we choose Christ, the END-END result is a secured VICTORY by the Blood of the Lamb.

Everything works out for the good of those who love God and are called for His purposes. As we endure, overcome, learning obedience through suffering, as CHRIST did – and keep on STANDING IN HIM, who fills all things with Himself, we mature towards the full stature of Christ within; until Jesus comes.

As we choose HIM DAILY… we will ‘make it’, to receive the price.

Ecc 7:11-14
11 Wisdom is good with an inheritance, And profitable to those who see the sun.
12 For wisdom is a defense as money is a defense, But the excellence of knowledge is that wisdom gives life to those who have it.
13 Consider the work of God; For who can make straight what He has made crooked?
14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, But in the day of adversity consider: Surely God has appointed the one as well as the other,

So that man can find out nothing that will come after him.

AS we draw wisdom from the Almighty and gain insight and guidance through His ways, laws and statutes, our lives become subject to His council on straight and narrow paths; following the prompting of Holy Spirit, to lead us unto life & life in abundance.

This is our quest to follow after His Holy Spirit within us, towards wise living.

c. THE GREATEST REWARDS

The greatest reward will also be to help others towards salvation, encourage all to endure together and to give hope and ENCOURAGEMENT – for all to KEEP ON STANDING.

Our privilege, as His Bride, is also to take HANDS in CREATING SPACE and AN OPPORTUNITY for GOD TO SHOW HIMSELF GREAT, CREDIBLE, FAITHFUL and FULL of LOVE to all of mankind.

Sometimes our misery is the stage for that to happen… it’s not our choice.

d. THE GOOD NEWS

While spreading the GOOD NEWS of the GLORIOUS ETERNAL SALVATION that awaits all, who have died in Him – is that sickness, disease, hardship and suffering is not God’s will for us. God promises to be there by our side in and through it all. (Math10) He promises to be there and take us THROUGH THE VALLEY of the SHADOW of death. The word says that the enemy is LIKE a roaring lion… he is not one… he only SOUNDS like one!
These difficulties that befall us from time to time are part of our fallen creation. A creation that cries out to be redeemed back to the Glory of God and for the sons & daughters of God to be revealed.

e. TO OVERCOME

They have OVERCOME him by the BLOOD of the Lamb, the WORD of their TESTIMONY..

and they did not love their lives… Rev.12v11

HERE in the latter part… lies another KEY answer in HOW we perceive LIFE’S QUESTS.

How much do we ‘cling’ to our lives?
Have we given our lives back into HIS HANDS and do we ENTRUST it completely INTO HIS ALL-KNOWING, ALL-WISE and LOVING CARE ?

Will we therefore follow His instructions; to receive life… in abundance?

What is life in abundance then?

Is it maybe just to live in the reality & experiential place of His CONSTANT PRESENCE & PEACE in ALL things; – THAT PEACE that surpasses all understanding.

f. GRACE! GRACE!

Not one of us can do this in our own strength or wisdom….
Therefore, we should STAND, STAY and ABIDE in HOPE, COURAGE and FAITH to progressively ENTER by GRACE, His place of REST for our lives, through all these trials
.

FOR it is TRULY ONLY BY GRACE that we live and have our being…

In part …

From my heart…

26. UNITE IN CHRIST Part 2

18 Day 28 40 DAY CALL Wed 21 Nov

UNITE IN CHRIST Part 2

GOD Himself is BUILDING HIS CHURCH – It is His ECCLESIA

He will not fail His own purpose or Divine Will …

Christ is not coming for a few individuals who lived a perfect life or followed a perfect doctrine.

Christ is returning to a TOTAL BRIDE

– that will be

UNBLEMISHED – ONLY IN CHRIST ‼

A remnant that will only be ready as they all,

TOGETHER, ABIDE IN CHRIST.

– CORPORATELY we make up the REMNANT…

We all form together the Ecclesia that NEEDS each OTHER… the knee, heart, toe, mouth and hand…

HE IS the HEAD…

We SHOULD BE the BODY WORKING TOGETHER.

Rom3v23

” … for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

… almal het gesondig, en ontbreek aan die heerlikheid van God.”

THEREFORE…

LET US ATTEMPT TO :

♡ HAVE MERCY and GRACE with each other.

♡ SNATCH those in sin from the fire… with much Love and graced Truth

♡ FORGIVE as I see my own sin,  weaknesses and struggles scarring His body

♡ LOVE like CHRIST LOVED; with much Grace

♡ SEE HIS MERCY and BLOOD STAINED ROBE on others as much as gratifying it to my own imperfect life.

WE ARE THE BODY – CORPORATE

AS WE ARE :

@ MADE ONE, IN HIS NAME,

@ Being SANCTIFIED by HIS TRUTH through His WORD,

@ UNITED in HIS LOVE for US.

He LOVES US “ALL”

with the SAME LOVE that the Father had for Christ!!!

LET US THEN BE :

ONE IN HIS LOVE

FOR ALL OF HIS CREATION

… AND FORGIVE !!!

SCRIPTURES:

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

John 17:3 NKJV

I have given to them the words which You have given Me;

THEY HAVE RECEIVED them” ( HIS WORDS…)

“… as Christ LOVED the church and GAVE HIMSELF up for her,

That HE might PRESENT the church TO HIMSELF

in

GLORIOUS SPLENDOR, without spot or wrinkle or any such things

[that she might be holy and faultless]. ”

Ephesians 5:25, 27 AMPC

WE ARE TO :

  • GO and move in the

AUTHORITY of CHRIST

  • LOOK at this present age

from HEAVEN’S PERSPECTIVE

ENCOURAGE-ment :

○ Man sees limitation,

GOD sees His LIBERATING GRACE.

○ Man look upon sickness,

CHRIST sees me through the STRIPES on His flesh, for my HEALING.

○ Man wavers to do,

CHRIST opens His mouth and CREATE life…

so must we also SPEAK & LIVE LIFE

○ Man look at numbers and position,

GOD knows the CAPACITY,  POWER and AUTHORITY of one

Scripture: Ephesians 4:15 AMPC

” Rather, let our lives LOVINGLY EXPRESS TRUTH

[in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly].

ENFOLDED in LOVE, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).”

GOD KEEP and BLESS YOU

IN HIM;

FOR HIS NAME’S SAKE

25. CHRIST’S TESTIMONY, MY TESTIMONY Part 3

18 Day21 40DAY CALL P3 14Nov

Part 3:

CHRIST lived a COMPLETE TESTIMONY

WHAT ABOUT MY TESTIMONY ?

CHRIST’S TESTIMONY

 

CHRIST’S TESTIMONY WAS ONLY FULLY CONCLUDED, …. 

IN HIS FATHER’S DEFINITE and FIXED PURPOSE for HIS LIFE

“This Jesus,… delivered up ACCORDING

to the DEFINITE and FIXED PURPOSE and SETTLED PLAN

and FOREKNOWLEDGE of God,…” Acts 2:23… AMPC

OUR TESTIMONY

 

▪ Is our testimony in word and deed about Christ?

▪ Is our Testimony compromised?

▪ Are we perhaps following our own council?

▪ Do we REALLY STILL WANT to

RISK OUR LIVES, by TRYING to ESCAPE HIS WAYS, NEGOTIATE or

WANGLE OUR OWN REASONING… as the best wisdom… without obedience to His WAYS, WILL

and

HIS DIVINE PURPOSE for my life …?

 

▪ Do we still want to come with our INTELLECTUAL ARGUMENTS,

SELF RIGHTEOUS OPINIONS

about GOD, HIS WAYS,

FELLOW BELIEVERS… and

HIS WILL…?

OUR TESTIMONY

( what we speak and live )

SHOULD BE ABOUT

CHRIST RESURRECTED and ALIVE in me

HALLELUJAH ‼

 

Let us look at one of

 

□□ DAVID’S TESTIMONY (IES)

 

Acts 2: 25-28 AMPC

“For David says in regard to Him, 

I SAW the Lord CONSTANTLY BEFORE me, 

for He is at my right hand that 

I may NOT BE 

– SHAKEN or 

– OVERTHROWN or – CAST DOWN 

[from my secure and happy state]. “

 

DAVID KNEW HIM BY HEART,

HE SAW HIM BY SPIRIT,

HE LIVED BY HIS PASSION

 

▪ DO WE LIVE DAILY WITH

THE HOPE

RECEIVED from a PASSIONATE,

SPIRIT-FILLED RELATIONSHIP with GOD,

OUR FATHER, LORD and Holy Spirit COUNSELOR… ?

“Therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue exulted exceedingly; moreover, my flesh also will dwell in HOPE 

[will encamp, pitch its tent, and dwell in hope in anticipation of the resurrection].”

 

DAVID’S STATEMENT OF FAITH in GOD

WAS MADE from HOLY SPIRIT PASSION WITHIN…

BECAUSE :

○ HE SAW CHRIST CONSTANTLY BEFORE HIM

○ HE SAW CHRIST’S FUTURE BLISS BY THE SPIRIT !!!!!

 

WE SHOULD SEE OUR-SELF

SEATED IN CHRIST…

AND CHRIST IN US

BELIEVE and LIVE AS IS

 

🙌🙌…AMEN!!

 

“For You will not abandon my soul, leaving it helpless in Hades 

(the state of departed spirits),

nor let Your Holy One know decay or see destruction 

[of the body after death]. 

You have made known to me the ways of life ; 

You will ENRAPTURE me

[ diffusing my soul with joy ]

 WITH and IN Your PRESENCE.” 

SCRIPTURES:

Acts 2:23, 25-28 AMPC

Also

Ps. 16:8-11.

 

CONCLUSION:

What about the following “hashtag” in our minds….

#CHRIST@ME/US

 

HALLELUJAH!!!!!!! Amen and AMEN….!!!

MAY it be so with me, Oh my Lord!

 

GOD KEEP and HOLD YOU IN the PROMISE of

BEING IN HIM CONSTANTLY .

24. CHRIST’S TESTIMONY, MY TESTIMONY Part 2

18 Day20 Tuesday 13 NOV 40 DAY CALL

Part 2

of

CHRIST lived a COMPLETE TESTIMONY

WHAT ABOUT MY TESTIMONY ?

 

MY TESTIMONY SHOULD SAY : CHRIST 1st

 

HOW MANY CHRISTIANS,

WHO HAVE CHRIST’S NAME ON THEIR LIPS…

LIVE

□□ UNFULFILLED LIVES

 

WHY?

Here are a few points to consider:

 

  • HAVE we EMBRACED the FULLNESS of our Lord JESUS, His TRUTH,  STATUTES… LOVE… GRACE… and His Holy Spirit GUIDANCE and COUNCIL… IN us?
  • Have we STEPPED INTO OUR SON-SHIP POSITION ?

(Rom8v14; Gal3:26-4:7)

  • Do we really LIVE and worship HIM !!… BY (IN) SPIRIT and the solid TRUTH of HIS Word… ?

Let us EXERCISE DAILY to LIVE

BY THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

(John3:5-6; Rom5v5, Gal5;  Rom8)

 

□□ What is our DEFAULT JOY …. ?

We often, even as Believers still seek, as our DEFAULT JOY, the ENTERTAINMENT and JOY’S of this world…

and afterwards are left empty;

WITHOUT A LIFE MISSION or PURPOSE in God’s will for us..

Somehow we still think we will find life’s JOY and PURPOSE out there.

WHERE AS GOD HAS PLACED HIS MISSION and therefore our TRUE LIFE’S MEANING and JOY VERY CLOSE INSIDE…

We are His sons and daughters by the indwelling of Holy Spirit…. to be led by the Holy Spirit DAILY on God’s MISSION for THAT DAY.

Only this brings deep, long lasting and true fulfillment in life.

 

  • OUR DEVOTION and PASSION SHOULD BE TO CHRIST 1st…

TO

His mission and to HIS BODY (ECCLESIA)..

TO SERVE Him through THEM…

if we desire to experience the power of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 2:42 AMPC

“And they steadfastly persevered, devoting themselves constantly to the instruction and 

(c) fellowship of the apostles, 

to the (a) breaking of bread [including the Lord’s Supper] and (b) prayers. “

 En-COURAGE-ment from above Scripture :

(a) TO CHRIST 1 st :

As you take COMMUNION, allow yourself to embrace all of JESUS IN, THROUGH and ABOUT you

(b) PRAYER :

As you pray, KNOW and TRUST God to have ALL the answers.. you just ask with PATIENT RESILIENCE

(c)THE BODY OF CHRIST :

On your own… the fire of Light, Love and Hope will die down… if not close to the fire of His ECCLESIA

“No man is an island ”

We need the vehicle of His Body to STRENGTHEN the GOOD NEWS IN and mobilize it THROUGH us.

Surround yourself with His remnant Bride

CHRIST lived a COMPLETE TESTIMONY

WHAT ABOUT MY TESTIMONY ?

(Part1)

JESUS RAISED

“This Jesus God raised up, and of that all we [His disciples] are witnesses.

JESUS ASCENDED

“Being therefore lifted high by and to the right hand of God,

HOLY SPIRIT POURED OUT

“And having received from the Father the promised [blessing which is the] Holy Spirit,

He has made this outpouring which you yourselves both see and hear.”

CHRIST’S TESTIMONY (on earth) COMPLETED

“Therefore let the whole house of Israel recognize beyond all doubt and acknowledge assuredly that God has made Him both LORD and CHRIST (the Messiah)–this Jesus Whom you crucified.

My TESTIMONY :

(Part1)

“Now when they heard this they were stung (cut) to the heart, and they said to Peter and the rest of the apostles,

Brethren, what shall we do?

And Peter answered them,… “

My TESTIMONY STARTS WITH THIS :

■ “REPENT- CHANGE your VIEWS and PURPOSE to

■ ACCEPT the WILL of GOD

in your inner selves INSTEAD of REJECTING it”

 

WHAT IS THE WILL OF GOD?

– A Part of it… is to ACCEPT Him to be all-knowing,  all-powerful,  omnipresent..

therefore to STOP SELF preservation…

■ EMBRACE His PROCESS and Divine WAYS to REDEEM your life and KEEP you CLOSE and ABLE to STAND in all areas (Ef6)

■ Be BAPTIZED,

– into a NEW WAY of THINKING and LIVING…

■ SUBMERGE yourself in HIS WORD and WONDER- BE IN AWE OF HIM

” EVERY ONE of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the FORGIVENESS of and RELEASE from your sins; and

■ YOU shall RECEIVE the GIFT of the HOLY SPIRIT. ”

 

HOLY-SPIRIT-LIVING IS FOR US ALL,

TODAY

and FOR ALL WHO WILL RECEIVE  and ANSWER HIS CALL

 

“For the PROMISE [of the HOLY SPIRIT] is to and for you and your children, and to and for all that are far away, [even] to and for as many as the Lord our God invites and bids to come to Himself.

WE NEED the PEACE, PRESENCE,  POWER,  GUIDANCE and direct INPUT… of the HOLY SPIRIT to make this life” WORK

SUPPORTING SCRIPTURES:

1Co_2:9

What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]

Psa 103:2-5

2 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits–

3 Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases,

4 Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy;

5 Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]! [Isa. 40:31.]

4.2 Sowing His Body To Reap a Body for His Glory

REAPING COMMUNION BENEFITS 2

EXHORTATION

CHRIST SOWED HIS BODY…. AS A SEED THAT DIED IN THE GROUND

THE HARVEST HE DESIRED TO REAP FROM HIS SACRIFICIAL “SOWING”, IS A BODY FOR HIM TO INDWELL – BOTH INDIVIDUAL & CORPORATE

HIS DESIRE FOR THIS BODY / THESE BODIES
IS THAT IT WILL BE A “SERVANT” FOR HIS GLORY:

A SERVANT TO SERVE THIS WORLD WITH HIS

LOVE, TRUTH, GRACE, POWER & GLORY

COMMUNION SCRIPTURE READING

Heb 10:1-39

1 FOR SINCE the Law has merely a rude outline (foreshadowing) of the good things to come…

4 Because the blood of bulls and goats is powerless to take sins away.
5 Hence, when He [Christ] entered into the world, He said, Sacrifices and offerings You have not desired, but instead You have made ready a body for Me [to offer];

9 …Behold, [here] I am, coming to do Your will.

Thus He does away with and annuls the first (former) order [as a means of expiating sin] so that He might inaugurate and establish the second (latter) order. [Ps. 40:6-8.]

10 And in accordance with this will [of God],

we have been made holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body of Jesus Christ (the Anointed One).

12 Whereas this One [Christ], after He had offered a single sacrifice for our sins [that shall avail] for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, 13 Then to wait until His enemies should be made a stool beneath His feet. [Ps. 110:1.]

14 For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy.

Communion2 Summary:

As YOU CELEBRATE HIS BODY broken for you and His blood that was shed for you, remember that He has done it for you as an individual person… FOR YOU ‘ALONE’ on that cross He died…

He wants to share the communion meal with you, as one of His children with whom He shares your Life-time with – explaining through His Holy Spirit deep into your heart His personal LOVE DECLARATION to you.

No matter where you are in your life right now…

HE has it covered… IN HIS BLOOD and BODY – HIS BODILY SACRIFICE – SERVING YOU with HIS ULIMATE LOVE ANNOUNCEMENT… to quicken Body, Soul & Spirit – TO LIFE!

ALLOW Him to LOVE you to the FULL measure of His DIVINE INTENT.

📖 SCRIPTURE:

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come,
for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
Revelation 12:10‭-‬12 NKJV

GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU IN HIS LOVE AND TRUTH
🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌

20.VISION : WORSHIP RELEASES THE BLOOD TO FLOW

A VISION : WORSHIP RELEASE THE POWER of the BLOOD

As I was busy with COMMUNION, I asked the Father to reveal to me His perspective on Worship. He took me into A VISION :

COMMUNION

  • “I saw us on top of the mountain… partaking the Bread of Communion”.

As the BREAD became part of our bodies, it also became part of the Body of Christ…. as we understand it; in the context of Believers united in Christ.

AS WE PARTAKE in COMMUNION – EAT THE BREAD & DRINK THE BLOOD of CHRIST – HIS BODY becomes part of ours & His Blood starts to cleans us.

The effect of PARTAKING the Bread, released springs of LIFE; a river of LIVING WATER – to flow from our bellies.

He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water. (See below Joh 7:38)

 

  • “I saw the River of Life – The living Water of the Holy Spirit – starting to flow through us in 5 different streams down the mountain.”
  • “The 5 STREAMS flowed THROUGH HIS HOLY FIRE (to purge our worship from self, idolatry, self righteousness, fear and sin… ) the Fire turned the STREAMS (Worship) into Blood.”

WHY FIVE streams?

FIVE is the NUMBER of GRACE. 

I believe our Father just wanted to emphasize again that His ABUNDANT GRACE is the very thing that KEEPS us… for NOTHING of self, our OWN efforts can help us.

THE POWER OF THE BREAD and THE BLOOD

The power of the Blood enables True Worship to reach the Destiny that the Living Word; the Bread was meant for.

The BREAD that we eat turns into streams of living water, flowing from our bellies; which in turn brings us life & therefore FOOD, nourishment – the BREAD; JESUS CHRIST to flow through us to the people HE has destined us to touch with HIs love….

“For My flesh is true and genuine food, and My blood is true and genuine drink.” (See Below John 6:55)

  • “I saw the Blood flow into the sea … water… Holy Spirit… the water evaporates… meaning THE HOLY SPIRIT rises up and nourish us with the RAIN… ALSO a symbol of  Life; LIFE for ever more.”

“I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts”

The Complete circle of the Water & the Fire (heat) & the Blood…

SEA speak of souls… the people He has destined – before the begiining of time – for us to reach, influence & lead to Christ

WHY WAS THE 1ST MIRACLE OF JESUS THE WATER TURNED TO WINE?

JESUS CHRIST is The Bread…. He was there with them at the  WEDDING (UNION between God & us)…

BUT His Blood had not yet flown…

The Wine was a typo of His Blood still to be shed… His Blood IN ABUNDANCE, enough Blood for the redemption of all of creation… and it was THE BEST Wine kept For last… to redeem man back to God… through the Holy Spirit

RESPOND TO HIS LOVE DECLARATION

The only thing that we should be doing, the only actions that we actually can perform in this whole REDEMPTION GIFT DISPLAY from our Father; is to EMBRACE it & RESPOND back with LOVE BECAUSE of His FIRST LOVE INITIATION ACT.

We CANNOT INNITIATE anything… HE IS the ALPHA & the OMEGA. HE IS the begiining & the End of ALL things. 

WE SHOULD ONLY RESPOND to this amazing LOVE DECLARATION from CHRIST… ENRAVED on a TREE… WRITTEN IN BLOOD 

Hebrews 12:4‭, ‬18‭-‬18‭, ‬22‭, ‬24 NKJV

You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest,

But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,

TO Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant,

and

TO the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

Vision : PRAYER MOUNTAIN – The GIFT of REPENTANCE

30/08/2017

 

Mat_3:11 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.

Joh 4:13 Jesus answered her, All who drink of this water will be thirsty again.
Joh 4:14 But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.

Joh 7:38-39
38 He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.
39 But He was speaking here of the Spirit, Whom those who believed (trusted, had faith) in Him were afterward to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honor).

Joh_19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out

Rev_21:6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.

Isa_48:18 Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Isa_66: For thus says the LORD: “Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, And the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream. Then you shall feed; On her sides shall you be carried, And be dandled on her knees

Rev 22:1-3
1 THEN HE showed me the river whose waters give life, sparkling like crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb
2 Through the middle of the broadway of the city; also, on either side of the river was the tree of life with its twelve varieties of fruit, yielding each month its fresh crop; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing and the restoration of the nations. [Gen. 2:9.]
3 There shall no longer exist there anything that is accursed (detestable, foul, offensive, impure, hateful, or horrible). But the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall worship Him [pay divine honors to Him and do Him holy service]. [Zech. 14:21.]

Joh 6:51-56
51 I [Myself] am this Living Bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever; and also the Bread that I shall give for the life of the world is My flesh (body).
52 Then the Jews angrily contended with one another, saying, How is He able to give us His flesh to eat?
53 And Jesus said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, you cannot have any life in you unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you appropriate His life and the saving merit of His blood].
54 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood has (possesses now) eternal life, and I will raise him up [from the dead] on the last day.
55 For My flesh is true and genuine food, and My blood is true and genuine drink.
56 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood dwells continually in Me, and I [in like manner dwell continually] in him.

Dan_12:7 Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.

 

19. THE VOICE of the Church has been SILENCED and is STRICKEN INEFFECTIVE.

THE VOICE OF THE CHURCH

NOW IS THE TIME TO CORRECT THIS GRIEVOUS SIN AGAINST THE  VOICE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!

THE CHURCH CANNOT EFFECTIVELY RISE UP WITH ONE VOICE AND BOLD AUTHORITY AGAINST CRIME, MURDER AND ANARCHY;  EVEN OUR TESTIMONIES ARE BEING SILENCED.  HEALING from sickness and disease are diminished in the physical & spirit BECAUSE THE BODY IS DIVIDED AND TOOTHLESS… THE REASON BE…

the testimony of christ

THE TESTIMONY OF CHRIST HAS BEEN THWARTED by the very vehicle GOD Instituted to release it.

This is done in exchange for human abilities, human wisdom and fleshly councils, carnal experiences, insight and the satisfying of carnal minded, soul dimension demands and human good ideas can be voiced.

■ IF WE REJECT THE TESTIMONY OF CHRIST WE ALSO REJECT THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY. THEREFORE WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RELEASE THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY; WHO is CHRIST HIMSELF!

DON’T NOT BE FOOLED.

IF THE 5 FOLD IS NOT OPERATIONAL IN our CORPORATE FAITH EXPERIENCE, CHURCH, MINISTRY then we HAVE NOT YET EMBRACED THE FULL TESTIMONY OF CHRIST.

The church and His people are therefore loosing out and are compromised in their understanding of Who Christ is and how He designed the church to function.

We are therefore experiencing a DISABLED CHRIST TESTIMONY and are a DIS-FUNCTIONAL Body. WE ARE then TEACHING HALF THE TRUTH.
_____________________________________________________________

the prophetic voice

Is the prophetic voice in SA paralyzed?

Is it kept in this state, along with Prophetic callings being assassinated in the spirit, by the spirit of Jezebel? Or is it kept in this place by controlling spirits functioning through the religious spirit under the banner of order, excellence and/or effective leadership?

“The leading of the Holy Spirit has NO chance”; seeing that we apparently  don’t need Him most of the time. We are so effective on our own in serving Him, which we then do on His behalf. In our ZEAL for God, jam-packed, full of ideas and self we run into the trap of the religious spirit. This spirit motivates our actions through the satisfaction of doing things right and gratifies by the ticking of boxes and well done stickers, instead of just following the Holy Spirit’s lead.

The time is now, that we should have a look at the church – under the demonic influence of Jezebel – afresh.  Where the church functions under the spirit of a smothering control, we should understand the full impact of our decisions, attitudes and behavior. This spirit has the paralysis of the EFFECTIVE VOICE of the church in its agenda, using God fearing people.

We need CHRIST’S TESTIMONY to be released  through the Holy Spirit only.

The church’s VOICE is SILENT and ineffective because of self idolatry and narrow vision… THEREFORE it is SHALLOW AND WITHOUT AUTHORITY.

We often rely on fleshly achievements and do not operate & serve God’s people in the authoritative power of the Holy Spirit’s sent missions in and for His glory by His Spirit.

THE CHRISTIAN GIANT

The churches should be leading the way in each town and in different spheres of society.

The Christian Giant should now rise up and make a stand and take the lead and create the future of this nation. This is done by our Words of Prophetic Vision, Insight and Revelation through the weapons of His Blood and Spirit authority.

WE CANNOT DENY HALF OF CHRIST.

As long as we cling to our own thrones, crowns and narrow platforms, we cannot embrace the 5 FOLD MINISTRY GIFTS of JESUS CHRIST; WHO IS CHRIST IN EARTHLY VESSELS.

The church are heading for burned down, empty “temples” and a Bride that has sinned by missing her calling in preparing for her BRIDEGROOM. 

A Bride defiled and robbed of Divine impartation. Who has violated her purpose and aborted her mission because she REJECTED Christ in ALL that He is and therefore is WITHOUT HIS DIVINE STRENGTH in HIS DIVINE MISSION.

The churches are full of tired “temples” without VISION or HOPE because the VOICE of our HOLY SPIRIT LORD – The “RUACH” of our GOD, has been replaced by human voices. This is then A BRIDE without her beauty and glory.

THE EARTH CRIES OUT

The whole earth cries out for the release of the sons & daughters of the Most High God – El Elyon.

Our King is coming and we are still rejecting the 5 Fold fullness of Christ’s  Redemptive perfect structure for the church.  We are still quarreling over selfish and self centered opinions.

The testimony of Christ is the spirit of prophecy.

The Prophetic voice is the Holy Spirit’s Testimony of Christ.

Anything else could be our own, mere human carnal mind and words, covered up in white religious, pretentious paint.
Without revelation we are merely running a religious carnally glamoured institution.

Woe to us!

Woe to the one who misleads any of these… His children
Woe to a failing church because of lust after power, coveting, pride, earthly honor, position and the power to control…..

WE HUMBLE OURSELVES..

WE REPENT OF OUR SINS LORD

FEBRUARY 2017

16. PRAYER SANCTIFICATION – OVERCOMING

PRAYER mountain
Ascend the Mountain of PRAYER

Prayer Sanctification and Transformation in my life – to OVERCOME through PRAYER

Intro: What is PRAYER?

GOD gave me a vision OF A MOUNTAIN as a symbol of PRAYER

See attached

We start ascending the MOUNTAIN OF PRAYER at the lowest point… at the feet of the mountain; on our knees.

ENTRY POINT

We look for best place to enter into prayer (where to start the ascend into prayer); where we humble ourselves before an almighty God and FATHER and repent for our sinfulness…

Rom 3:23-24
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

YET EMBRACING THE WONDERFUL GIFT OF HIS FORGIVENESS THROUGH THE POWER OF THE BLOOD OF CHRIST

24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.

1ST LANDING

Now we work our way up (our faith-life to go up); around bends & at times by moving a few stones/rocks(sin, idols, self-life, self-centred goals & passions) out of the way.

FINDING A COMFORTABLE FAITH LEDGE

At times we sit on a ledge (we rest, we quiet our soul down) & give the Holy Spirit time to speak, reveal and unveil His heart to me. Here we repent and receive HIS LOVE, forgiveness & we change towards the renewal of our understanding of our GOD.

REACHING PRAYERS SUMMIT IN HIS PRESENCE

On the last section of the mountain, where it is much higher up, there it is sometimes lonely in PRAYER & ice cold because of the ELEVATION. Here we take out our ICE-AXE; to thrust it into the ice face of the mountain. Now is the moment in our faith walk to make sure of our hold; to STAND & to KEEP ON STANDING, in order to be OVERCOMMERS.

The ICE-AXE  is our testimony, utterances and words of FAITH. Also where we start to understand what it means in this text(Rev12v11) : ” not loving our life”

ON top of the MOUNTAIN of prayer we are lifted up by the Holy Spirit INTO REVELATION…HERE We CAN SEE VERY FAR…HERE we see, hear, taste, smell & and know(feel) that God is GOOD & very close to us. He is as near as my next breath. He is already in the next moment, hour & season of my life

THE FAMILIAR SPIRIT in PRAYER

We do so often just start to run up the mountain in prayer because we maybe think we know this place, we have been training for so long, we know the way up to the top of the MOUNTAIN of PRAYER; therefore we easily get familiar with the environment here.

We often will even think that we know how to do this… we know our “prayer rhymes” by heart… WE KNOW HOW to pray.

This is dangerous for intimacy, authentic prayer & transparency where His Holy Spirit’s voice must rather lead and show us the way into the FATHER’S PRESENCE!!

The closer I get to the Father, the more I realize how small, sinful & unworthy I am in myself… & the more I realize what Christ did for me on the cross and how much I need Him to lead the way into the FATHER’S HEART

Then the question is rather… what is prayer to us?

 Are we here to perform a ritual, to follow a default very good habit, to do our duty… to follow a program… and even to be seen… or to impress God & our fellow man with our ability to pray….???

GOAL: Our sole PURPOSE of THIS PRAYER TIME is to MEET with the Father because of the Son through Holy Spirit

 

If we do not touch His heart with our prayer… if we have not been in His presence… it can be equated to the 8 woes that Christ announced over the Pharisees & Sadducees… just a lot of impressive words, works & hypocrisy or to do our duty!!!

 

After we’ve been in His presence we are then infused to go out and to do what God told us to do; to influence & change the lost & broken world & every person we meet, with the Father’s love

1. PREPARE OUR HEARTS

Psa 24:3-5

(3)  Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place?

(4)  He who has clean hands and a pure heart,… (no falsehood allowed)

Mat 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

(5)  He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

 

1.1. EXAMINE OURSELVES

2Co_13:5  Examine and test and evaluate your own selves to see whether you are holding to your faith are equaled to :

G4102 (truth itself: – assurance, belief, believe, faith, fidelity(-loyalty, faithfulness, trustworthiness, agreement, conformity, towing the line to Christs truth.)

G3982 (to be content, obey, trust, yield.)

Gal_6:4  But let every person carefully scrutinize and examine and test his own conduct and his own work.

He can then have the personal satisfaction and joy of doing something commendable [in itself alone] without boastful comparison with his neighbour and showing the proper fruits of it. Test and prove yourselves 1not Christ].

1.2. REPENTANCE

2Co_7:10  For godly grief and the pain God is permitted to direct, produce a repentance that leads and contributes to salvation and deliverance from evil, and it never brings regret;

2Co_3:16  But whenever a person turns [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away.

2Co 3:17  Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

2Co 3:18  And all of us, as with unveiled face, continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.

 

Act_3:19  So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;

1.3 HUMBLE OURSELVES IN REVERENTIAL FEAR & AWE

Mat 3:11a

(11)  I indeed baptize you in (with) water because of repentance [that is, because of your changing your minds for the better, heartily amending your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins].

Mat 3:11b – 12

But He Who is coming after me is mightier than I, Whose sandals I am not worthy or fit to take off or carry;

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit (7 fold Holy Spirit of God – Is11v2)

and with fire.(Sanctification OF a refining fire)

So does the Spirit make the soul holy like itself, and its tendency is heaven-ward. Christ says: I am come to send fire, Luk_12:49.

(12)  His winnowing fan (shovel, fork) is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear out and clean His threshing floor ( THE visible CHURCH) and gather and store His wheat in His barn, but the chaff He will burn up with fire that cannot be put out.

Heb_12:28  Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

1.4 SO WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE US?

Rom_5:1  Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

2. POSITION OURSELVES IN HIS LOVE

We can do this by praying out loud THREE BEAUTIFUL INTIMATE WORDS:

GOOD MORNING FATHER

Eph 2:4  But God–so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us,

Eph 2:6-7

(6)  And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us N1joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).

(7)  He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus.

Prayer:  for each person to be open to receive this PURSUING love of the Father

” THANK YOU JESUS “

Vision of Christ on the Cross : I am thirsty

His thirst became a symbol of the everlasting living-water supply of His love. He thirsted IN ORDER TO BECOME THE RIVER OF LIFE UNTO US…

Joh 7:38  He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.

” HOLY SPIRIT HELP ME “To complete this race; to overcome

Rev_2:7

To him who overcomes (is victorious), I will grant to eat [of the fruit] of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

Rev_2:17

To him who overcomes (conquers), I will give to eat of the manna that is hidden, and I will give him a white stone with a new name engraved on the stone, which no one knows or understands except he who receives it.

Rev_2:26

And he who overcomes (is victorious) and who obeys My commands to the [very] end [doing the works that please Me], I will give him authority and power over the nations;

Rev_3:12  He who overcomes (is victorious),

I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God; he shall never be put out of it or go out of it, and I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which descends from My God out of heaven, and My own new name.

Rev_3:21  He who overcomes I will grant him to sit beside Me on My throne, as I Myself overcame and sat down beside My Father on His throne.

3. HOW will we overcome?

3.1 BY CHRIST’S RIGHTEOUSNESS

Jas_3:18  And the harvest of righteousness (of conformity to God’s will in thought and deed) is [the fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts].

3.2 BY FLEEING FROM BABYLON

Rev 18:4    I then heard another voice from heaven saying, Come out from her, my people, so that you may not share in her sins, neither participate in her plagues. [Isa_48:20; Jer_50:8]

Jer 50:8  Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans; and be as the he-goats [who serve as examples and as leaders in the flight] before the flocks

3.3 BY THE BLOOD & OUR TESTIMONY & selfless lives

Rev 12:11 And they have overcome him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life

even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].

3.4 BY CALLING UPON HOLY SPIRIT TO BREATHE ON US

Eze 37:9-10

(9)  Then said He to me, Prophesy to the breath and spirit, son of man, and say to the breath and spirit, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath and spirit, and breathe upon these slain that they may live.

(10)  So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath and spirit came into [the bones], and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great host. [Rev_11:11]

PRAYER POINTS:

  1. Ask & receive forgiveness & extend this grace to others
  2. Examine our own selves – if we are still in the faith (truth, trusting, trustworthy, loyal, towing the line In Christ)
  3. Humble ourselves – in the understanding Who we are dealing with
  4. Position ourselves IN HIS LOVE :

FATHER : Good morning Father

SON : Thank you, Jesus – Arise to HIS righteousness

HOLY SPIRIT : Abiding in to Overcome

  • In His righteousness
  • By fleeing from Babylon
  • By the Blood & the Word of our testimony
  • By the power of the Holy Spirit : Breathe on us, Oh Holy Breath of God

When the CHURCH will LOVE THEIR GOD

– because HE LOVED THE WORLD and ALL THINGS created, FIRST.

As GOD INITIATES LOVE, WE WILL RESPOND BY HONORING HIM BY OUR TRUST & FAITH

As God LOVED FIRST, we will return HIS LOVE; we will HONOR HIS love- connection; Him reaching out to us – mere man

THE LORD our God, will REVEAL and  COMMISSION is INTO HIS WAYS

~ To BRING US INTO THE FULLNESS OF HIS ETERNAL GLORY.

  • LET US RENEW OUR FAITH, STAND UP IN PERFECT HOPE and TO STAND.

TO KEEP ON STANDING; HIDDEN IN CHRIST.(Ef6)

  • LET US DISCERN HIM and WALK IN HIS AUTHORITY; AMBASSADORS OF THE KINGDOM OF HIS LIGHT, LOVE and GRACE-
  • LET US THEN HAVE HIS UNSURPASSED PEACE IN OUR HEARTS.

Php_4:7 and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding,

will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Col_3:15 And let the PEACE OF GOD rule in your hearts,

To which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.

  • LET THE RIGHTEOUS BE GLAD AND REJOICE EXCEEDINGLY (Ps68)

SHALOM!! SHALOM!!

God BLESS and KEEP YOU

15 DREAM : LAST DAYS – Believers’ position of peace, trust & expectancy

The Sound of the Lord

A DREAM : How to Position ourselves in the last days. How to approach & look at the most significant event of our lives 

VERY Important to know regarding dreams, is that it is very specific, yet, also only sharing IN PART…. We therefore focus here only on THIS dream & a partial interpretation pertaining to it.

Dated 121017

In this dream, I believe GOD wants to give us encouragement and put our minds at rest regarding the uncertainty of “the last days.” He wants to bring us to a place of hope, peace & trusting-rest in Him. He does not want us to become anxious about the time approaching before His coming. He reassures us that He is at all times with us and knows what is about to happen. He is after all the orchestrator of it all 

I saw this dream in 3 sections – CENTER, RIGHT & LEFT

  1. CENTER: We are part of a big group of Believers that are gathered at a specific place. Although everyone is very much at peace, there is a sense of expectation.  We all have been given a paper bag full of necessities – food and other things – to last for this specific ‘period’ in time. It is the day after a good friends birth day – in the beginning of the year….
  2. RIGHT: I am in a wave… swimming towards the shore of a small cosy little beach… I keep on repeating riding the waves ; enjoying it very much, although I have to negotiate my approach to the shore seeing that there are some rocks at the right & left of the beach.  As body surfing is something that I really very much enjoy in real life; this then actually does apply to something most enjoyable in my life.
  3. LEFT: The group of Believers are experiencing a change in the weather. We look at the sky and sense a very different weather pattern. The wind starts to blow heavily & we start seeing small animals… miniature male ostriches & porcupine with their feathers & quills blown in all directions by the wind!!! Also some antelope coming from the left, are running to the right of where we are facing this scene. It is as if the wind blows them in a specific direction. The scene moves from the left(spiritual.. & unknown) to the right… We are facing NORTH.

 

Explanation of Dream:

CENTER : NOW – TRUST & PEACE
  1. I believe God wants to encourage us that He will provide for us in all areas of life until the Day of His coming. We will experience His guidance, protection & peace to be with us. Life…as it is… will apply. Birthdays will still matter… normal life will carry on… we need to keep on “doing life” together till the end and we are to keep each other knitted to His remnant.

2Th 1:3-4

3  We ought and indeed are obligated to give thanks always to God… because your faith is growing exceedingly and the love of every one of you each toward the others is increasing and abounds.

4   And this is a cause of our mentioning you with pride among the churches (assemblies) of God for your steadfastness (your unflinching endurance and patience) and your firm faith in the midst of all the persecutions and crushing distresses and afflictions under which you are holding up.

RIGHT : Physical LIFE as it is now – HIS GOODNESS
  1. We must focus on all the GOOD He has given us, in what and also there where He has placed us. To keep on enjoying the blessings, favor and opportunities that comes from Him. We should not allow the waves of lives’ experiences & challenges to stop us, but we should rather change our attitude, get equipped & “ ride these waves”; making the most of every opportunity & use our giftings to the glory of His name through thanksgiving & praise. WE NEED to KEEP OUR FOCUS on HIM & on what HE IS DOING. KEEP the SHORE in the eye… as we also should be wise in negotiating around the difficulties; together with His wisdom & SKILL already provided through training as He allowed the different processes in our life. DON’T allow fear to stop you from riding those waves… trust in Him & the abilities that He graced you with… 

Eph 2:7

He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in [His] kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus.

Hos 10:12

Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.

Rev 19:6  After that I heard what sounded like the shout of a vast throng, like the boom of many pounding waves, and like the roar of terrific and mighty peals of thunder, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! For now the Lord our God the Omnipotent (the All-Ruler) reigns! 

 

LEFT : Spiritual – our weaker side… the unknown – EXPECTANCY
  1. YES… we will sense something… the heavens & the earth knows the voice of the Creator… Nature cries out & will respond to His presence… Although the Word says that He will come as a thief in the night… the Word also says that His sheep knows His voice… & will recognize His presence… The “adult” ostriches tells me that the time will be full… nature will be at its end… desperate for its renewal as the new heaven & earth come down

Rev 19:17

Then I saw a single angel stationed in the sun’s light, and with a mighty voice he shouted to all the birds that fly across the sky, Come, gather yourselves together for the great supper of God…

Rev 22:10  And he [further] told me, Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book and make no secret of them, for the time when things are brought to a crisis and the period of their fulfillment is near.

Rev 22:6  … And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His messenger (angel) to make known and exhibit to His servants what must soon come to pass. 

14. CHRIST ON DISPLAY & THE UNBLEMISHED BRIDE

UNBLEMISH BRIDE

A VISION : CHRIST ON DISPLAY & the UNBLEMISHED BRIDE

that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
1Pe_2:9  But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

Vision1:

I SAW A huge billboard outside a church facing the main entry with the following slogan:

1.“CHRIST ON DISPLAY”  2. “UNBLEMISHED BRIDE”

All around in the parking area, are stalls, each one representing one of the attributes of Christ. These are the characteristics that we would wish to display to the world & tell them more about. These stalls are out in the open; there where anyone can come & feel free to inquire of & find out more about JESUS CHRIST

Inside the church are different stalls representing the different ministries; informing what the church does & what these ministries involves. Together it forms the whole Body of Christ in all its facets.


EXPLAINING VISION – 1. “CHRIST ON DISPLAY”

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TELL THE WORLD ABOUT CHRIST?

1. Jesus of Nazareth – In His HUMANITY – He was completely human

Mat 1:23 “BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD, AND BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL,” which is translated, “God with us.” Mar 1:9 It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.

2. Jesus Christ – The Messiah, Anointed One – As MEDIATOR – He is all in all

Mar 16:6 But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.

Eph 1:22-23
22 And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church], [Ps. 8:6.]
23 Which is His body, the fullness of Him WHO FILLS ALL IN ALL [for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].

3. Jesus Christ – The BREAD OF LIFE:

TO EAT & FEED ON, PROVIDER, GOOD SHEPHERD, HEALER – BALM OF GILEAD, THE ANSWER, our REFUGE & HIDING PLACE. HIS MERCY & GRACE ENDURES FOREVER.

Joh 6:35 Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more (at any time).

4. Jesus Christ – THE LAMB of GOD:

SLAINED LAMB, REDEEMER, FORGIVING, CRUCIFIED & ASCENDED ON HIGH. SEATED AT the RIGHT HAND OF THE FEATHER. ETERNALLY INTERCEDING FOR US and RECEIVING OUR PRAYERS.

Joh 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world!

5. Jesus Christ – SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD:

SEEKING to SAVE THE LOST, The RESURECTION & ETERNAL LIFE, LIGHT of the NATIONS… OUR PEACE… OUR ONLY RIGHTEOUSNESS

Luk 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.

6. Jesus Christ; LORD – In HIS DEITY also Creator God

Rev 22:16 “I am the Root (the Source) and the Offspring of David, the radiant and brilliant Morning Star.
The Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last – the Before all and the End of all
LION OF JUDAH, RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, ETERNAL KING…

7. Jesus Christ – ETERNAL SON OF THE FATHER: “HE CALLED HIM FATHER”

Because Jesus is the 1st of many sons/daughters of the Father we need to find out MORE WHAT it MEANS to be a son or daugter of the Most High God

Eph 2:4 But God–so rich is He in His mercy! Because of and in order to satisfy the great and wonderful and intense love with which He loved us,
Eph 2:5 Even when we were dead (slain) by [our own] shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ; [He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for]

Eph 2:18 For it is through Him that we both [whether far off or near] now have an introduction (access) by one [Holy] Spirit to the Father [so that we are able to approach Him].


What is piercing your heart for Christ’s sake?

What moves you to humble yourself before His awesome greatness?

Who or what will move us – if not self?

What is our testimony & witness about Him?


EXPLAINING VISION -2. “UNBLEMISHED BRIDE”

Jud 1:24

(24)  Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]–

THE LORD BEFORE US; OUR REAR GUARD as HE send us
Isa 52:10-13

(10) The LORD has made bare His holy arm In the eyes of all the nations; And all the ends of the earth shall see The salvation of our God. (11) Depart! Depart! Go out from there, Touch no unclean thing; Go out from the midst of her, Be clean, You who bear the vessels of the LORD.(12) … For the LORD will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
(13) Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.

WHAT SHOULD WE BE BUSY WITH AS THE UNBLEMISHED BRIDE?

A. PUTTING THE FOCUS & SPOTLIGHT ON CHRIST – reverence, pursuing holiness

Isa 52:6 Therefore My people shall know My name; Therefore they shall know in that day That I am He who speaks: ‘Behold, it is I.’ “

Holiness will position us in the place for “the greater works” beyond Christ’s resurrection & in the power of His resurrection.
We need healing in our physical bodies, but also “healing” in the Body of Christ unto Holiness: Consecration, being set apart, speaking what He speaks, doing what He does…

B. MINISTRIES of the BELIEVING BRIDE

“MISSIONS”: WORKS of FAITH, FEEDING THE POOR, CARING FOR THE WIDOWS and ORPHANS, MINSTRY TO THE IMPRISONED, CARING FOR THE SICK, BRINGING IN THE HARVEST-SEEK & SAVE THE LOST

“PRAYER & WORSHIP”: WATCHMEN – FILLING UP THE LAMPS – KEEP THE FLAME BURNING, STANDING IN THE GAP; WORSHIP – THANKSGVING, PRAISE & ADORATION.

“GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT” at WORK: WORDS of KNOWLEDGE and WISDOM, DESCERNING of SPIRITS, GIFT of FAITH and HEALING, WORKING of MIRACLES, TONGUES, INTERPRETATION of TONGUES, PROPHECY – PROPHETIC INTERCESSION: SIGNS, WONDERS… WORDS OF EDIFICATION

“SERVING & GIVING”: FINANCES & STEWARDSHIP, BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING, FAVOUR RECIEVED & RELEASED, HELPING and GREETING, MEETING THE NEED, COMFORT & COUNCIL, CARING

“NEXT GENERATIONS”: CHILDREN, YOUTH, YOUNG ADULTS

“LEADERSHIP”: GUIDING & TEACHING, EDUCATE & EQUIP, DISCIPLINE & ENCOURAGE, INSTRUCT & GUARD, EXAMPLE & LEADING, FEEDING the SHEEP


C. THE BODY LOOKING OUT FOR ONE ANOTHER

Vision 2:

Two young men having a healthy wrestling match on the grass outside the church – building some muscles while playing & matching up their strengths, using their skill & enjoying a time of good, solid bonding. As they went closer to a steep slope one fell off, BUT immediately the other one – standing on the higher ground, stretch out his hand & arms to catch & rescue his fellow.

Explanation:
We should exercise boldness to speak truth into each other’s lives, shaping, moulding & exercising our faith-walk-muscles in trust, love & grace – in caring for one another. We need each other to look out for one another & snatch from the fire. We need this family of God – where else can you trust like this, feel secured & cherished, build into & mentored in grace; while remembering we are all still learning about this “faith walk”

D. PERSISTANCE: The GOOD NEWS of Christ PROCLAIMED TO ALL – yet few will believe it!

Isa 52:15 So shall He sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; For what had not been told them they shall see, And what they had not heard they shall consider.

Isa 53:1 Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?


3. TELLING HIS STORY AS IT IS:

THANKSGIVING FOR WHAT HE’S DONE FOR US

Isa 53:2-5

(3) He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. (4) Surely He has borne our grieves, And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted.
(5) But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Isa 53:10-12

(10) Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.(11) He shall see the labour of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.
(12) … Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.

A CALL TO EXUBERANT PRAISE

Isa 52: 7-8
(7) How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
(8) Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, With their voices they shall sing together; For they shall see eye to eye When the LORD brings back Zion.(9) Break forth into joy, sing together, You waste places of
Jerusalem! For the LORD has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem.

PREACH THE WORD, EXHORT, WARN: CALL NATIONS & LOST SOULS UNTO OBEDIENCE

Isa 55:5-7

(5) Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, And nations who do not know you shall run to you, Because of the LORD your God, And the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.” (6) Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.

A CALL for ALL TO COME TO REPENTANCE

(7) Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

KNOW THAT HIS WORD WILL GO OUT & PERFORM HIS WORD AS YOU OBEY HIS CALL TO GO by FAITH

Isa 55:8-11

(8) “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.
(9) “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
(10) “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater,

(11) So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

TELLING THE STORY & TESTIFY – TELL YOUR OWN STORY
– Testify boldly about all His faithfulness & good He has done…

Vision 3 :

Two coals. One is already burnt out & cold. The other one is still very hot & burning.

Explanation:
The 1st coal represents compromising words that tickle the ear. The 2nd coal that we need to put on our tongues is the pure unadulterated Word of God, the truth that sets us free, the letter/law/truth of just & Godly living.
It should be more important to us what Christ said than what people and the world suggests.


FINAL BLESSING
Act 20:32

And now, I commit you to God [I deposit you in His charge, entrusting you to His protection and care]. And I commend you to the Word of His grace [to the commands and counsels and promises of His unmerited favour]. It is able to build you up and to give you [your rightful] inheritance among all God’s set-apart ones (those consecrated, purified, and transformed of soul).

Mat 5:1-12

(3) Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (4) Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. (5) Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.

(6) Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. (7) Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy. (8) Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. (9) Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. (10) Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (11) Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

(12) Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
