ANCESTRAL ASSIGNMENTS

Breaking the Generational Curse

    "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. "You shall have no other gods before Me." Exodus 20:2,3

    I thought Jesus forgave all my sins, He did, I thought He healed all my diseases, He did, I thought He became a curse for us, He did! So why are all these curses coming on me and my family members? Remember, our sin, sickness and generational curses are inherited, beginning with Adam, and then moved down the bloodline of all mankind!

    Jesus fulfilled the law, washed away our sins, transgressions, iniquities and became a curse for us to whom the sentence of death was due! The cross of Christ was the very instrument in which all mankind was freed from their bondage of sin and death through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ! Even though the blood of Christ has set us free, the sins of our un-faithful (lost) ancestors have not been forgiven and the powers of darkness carry them down the bloodline.

    Medical science has proven that many diseases are inherited from our family members as well as other physical disabilities, maladies, and mental disorders. Today the hospitals are filled with the sick and infirm, many of which are suffering from generational curses inherited from their ancestors!

    Behold I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me. Behold You desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part (the heart) You will make me to know wisdom. Psalm 51:5,6

BORN IN SIN

    Therefore, just as through one man, (Adam) sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned. Romans 5:12

    The very reason we are to become born-again believers is the fact that we are born with the stain of Adam's sin that comes down our ancestral bloodline! Many refuse to believe it but it is true, we have inherited generational curses from the sins of our unfaithful ancestors!

    In my own family my grandfather sued his father who was a very wealthy judge to obtain his wealth. Problem being you don't sue a judge especially if he is your father! One night the barn caught fire and my grandfather ran into the flames to get the cars out and never came out! next his 10,000 sq. ft. house burned down. My dad left home at an early age and moved to Ft. Worth where his home and very expensive boathouse burned down, his office too and he died a premature death at 63! 

    

    My mother moved into a condo after my father's death and in one month it caught on fire! In 1980 I was saved from a $2000.00 a week cocaine addiction and the generational curse was broken and washed away by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ! Are all bad things curses, no, but when something in your life is consistently trying to destroy you or there are multiple attacks on you and your family members then you must seek the Lord for deliverance!

    "For I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, of those who love Me and keep My commandments." Exodus 20:5,6

APPROPRIATING THE BLESSING

    Have mercy upon me, O God according to Your lovingkindness; according to Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions, wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Psalm 51:1,2

    In order to break the generational assignment on your life confession of all known sin and the sins of your unfaithful ancestors must be made. Obviously, we probably don't know what our relatives actually did but God does, and he will honor your confession.

    Jesus bled in seven specific places from the garden of Gethsemane to the cross at Calvary to set us free of all iniquity and generational curses. Everything has been accomplished by Christ's death, burial, and resurrection! This is why we must appropriate that which has already been done for us. Because of ignorance, tradition and doctrines of demons, generational curses are ignored by quoting the scripture about Jesus becoming a curse for us and He did, but there is more to the story, Jesus said, "The truth shall set you free!"

    If you believe you have generational curses in your life, then confess and repent of your sin and the sins of your ancestors by acknowledging all iniquity and transgression to the Lord and break the assignment on you and your children!

    Create in me a clean heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me by your generous Spirit. Psalm 51:10-12

Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin

   Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

                                             "PRAYER OF FORGIVENESS"

    Heavenly Father, please hear my confession of sin and forgive me of all iniquity and transgression, of serving other gods and idols and forsaking my obligation as a born-again believer. Forgive my un-faithful ancestors of their sins and transgressions and break the generational curse off of me, my family, and my children! I receive by faith the shed blood of Jesus and the supernatural cleansing forgiving my sins and healing all inherited sickness, disease, and infirmity! In the name, power, blood and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, AMEN!

THE KEY TO SALVATION IS CONVICTION

THE THIEF ON THE CROSS

    One of the criminals who were hanged railed at Jesus, saying, "Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!" But the other thief rebuked him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong. "And he said, "Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom." And Jesus said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you will be with Me in paradise." Luke 23:39-43

    Two thieves sentenced to death, one was lost in his sin being hard hearted and crying out to Jesus to save him, not his soul, his flesh! The other thief was under conviction for his sins and asked Jesus to remember him when He entered His kingdom and Jesus said that he would be with Him that very day!

    Now what is interesting, today the thief would have gone to Hell because he didn't pray the sinner's prayer, wasn't baptized, didn't join the church and didn't walk an isle or make a profession of faith, he just said, "Remember me!" So, what was the key to his salvation, "Conviction!"

    The thief was convicted of his sins by the Holy Spirit and in essence asked Jesus to remember him which was an act of faith believing Jesus was in fact the Son of God! Conviction is always first in the steps to true conversion, because one must be convicted of his sins in order to be saved! Many have prayed, joined, walked an isle, been baptized and confessed Jesus as their Lord but without the conviction of the Holy Spirit it is to no avail!

    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23

PETER PREACHES REPENTANCE

    "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified both Lord and Christ. "Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart (convicted) and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?" Acts 2:36,37

    Thousands heard the sound of Heaven's mighty wind and the disciples speaking in their various languages and then Peter preaches the gospel and the Holy Spirit began to convict their hearts that they were indeed, lost!

    Crying out they asked Peter what they should do being convicted of their sins and in torment of mind and soul. Peter told them to repent of their sins and turn from their wicked ways in order to be saved and receive forgiveness.Today's gospel has been perverted in that conviction and repentance have been removed and replaced by a simple prayer that when prayed without conviction avails nothing!

    The apostle Paul warned the Galatian church that if anyone perverted the gospel of Christ or preached a different gospel they should be accursed! He was adamant about this and made it very clear that even if an angel from Heaven preached a different gospel he should also be accursed! The Word states that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God and all must be convicted as sinners in order to be saved!

    Then Peter said to them, "Repent and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission (forgiveness) of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Acts 2:38

THE DAMASCUS ROAD

    As Saul journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from Heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" Acts 9:3,4

    Saul was a persecutor of the church and was going to Damascus to continue his work to destroy the disciple's new found faith and bring them to Jerusalem bound to be judged. Saul was about to be convicted of his sins and gloriously saved and filled with the Holy Spirit.

    Blinded by the light of God, Saul, soon to be Paul was taken to Damascus and a disciple named Ananias was told by the Lord to go a street called Straight and he would find a man called Saul praying and to pray for him to receive his sight and be filled with the Spirit. The powerful conviction of God transformed Saul into a New Man who would in turn become one of the greatest men of God who ever lived!

    Conviction transforms our conscience and purifies our motives as the Holy Spirit indwells us upon our conversion! Are you born again, have you been convicted that you are a sinner? If not you may not be saved because you have to be under the conviction of the Holy Spirit's all seeing ability to gaze upon our heart!

    Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry; but that your sorrow led to repentance. For you were made sorry in a godly manner, that you might suffer loss from us in nothing. For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted, but the sorrow of the world produces death. II Corinthians 7:9,10

THE VISION

    I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected. Habakkuk 2:1

    We as believers are watchman, stewards of the mysteries of God, able to see in the Spirit those things that God shows us! I have an old friend and pastor, David who went blind a few years ago but although he cannot see the physical, he has 20/20 vision in the Spirit.

    In the above-mentioned scripture, it doesn't say he would listen to see what God would say, it says he would watch what He will say! The Hebrew word for vision means sight, dreams, revelation, or an oracle. It is imperative for the believer to be baptized in the Holy Spirit so that he can see into the spiritual realm to know the mind of Christ and discern that which is good and that which is evil!

    Jesus would often say, "He who has eyes to see, let him see!" He was referring however to spiritual sight in which one is to see that which was performed by Jesus in the Spirit. Many profess to be believers but very few have spiritual sight to actually see the supernatural realm.

    The disciples came and said to Jesus, "Why do you speak to them (the multitudes) in parables?" He answered and said to them, "Because it has been given to you (disciples) to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven, (secrets or hidden truths) but to them it has not been given," Matthew 13:10,11

THEN THE LORD ANSWERED

    "Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry." Habakkuk 2:2,3

    Early on in my journey with Jesus a godly pastor named Jesse taught me to study, meditate and write what God was saying to me in a journal which I have done for over forty years! Spiritual insight comes from study, meditation and prayer to discern that which the Spirit is saying.

    It was beyond my wildest dreams that I would ever become a writer, but God took me into the wilderness years ago in South Texas after downsizing us from a large ministry, 3500 square foot home on two acres to a 500 square foot apartment in Yorktown, Texas. No job, no ministry, except playing pool with the local barber who by the way got saved, and no distractions.

    One day I sat down at my desk in the tiny kitchen staring at the computer in front of me and found a Christian website where you could interact with people and began to hunt and peck on the keyboard until God began to give me messages to write. This was the beginning of a lifelong calling to write His word and hopefully enlighten the body of Christ to the mysteries of His kingdom!

    Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor sands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the word of the Lord and in His word, he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:1,2

OPEN HEAVEN

    In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Isaiah 6:1

    Isaiah saw the Lord with spiritual eyes into an open Heaven where the awesome power and anointing brought deep conviction to his heart. "Woe is me, for I am undone (destroyed and cut off) because I am a man of unclean lips, for my eyes (spiritual eyes) have seen the King, the Lord of hosts." Isaiah was having a vision that brought him to repentance and transformed his life.

    The night I was baptized in the Holy Spirit I experienced the shekinah glory of God as a golden cloud descended onto the congregation bringing the entire church to lay prostrate with their faces on the floor and all we could do was weep! No one could move being bathed with the awesome light of Heaven's glory.

    Just one glimpse of Heavens splendor changed my life forever and imagine what the modern-day church of the Lord Jesus Christ would be like if we only could see into the supernatural realm of the Holy Spirit? I exhort you to ask, seek and see into the mysterious world of supernatural vision for you will never be the same!

    "And it will come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh, your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions; and also, upon My menservants and My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. Joel 2:28,29

VAIN IMAGINATIONS

    “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” Romans 1:21 KJV

    The Greek word for imagination is phantasia, where we get the word fantasy, sound familiar? From the land of Disney, where fantasies are produced to fill the young minds of our children. Imagination is not necessarily a bad thing unless it begins to cloud our reality with that which leads us astray from the truth of God's word.

    Our natural imagination can be very productive when used to create things, such as art, inventions and even when writing about God's word, but when imagination turns to fantasy it becomes a vain and evil distraction! This is where the devil attacks our minds with fear, doubt and unbelief. An example of his schemes is when you receive a diagnosis or you are experiencing a symptom, your mind begins to conjure up (definition- to call upon a spirit) all kinds of devastating results until you are overwhelmed with fear that leads to terror!

    Fear is the enemy of faith and when you are believing God for healing the devil attacks your mind with vain imaginations to destroy your faith in God's word! The battleground of the believer is the mind where imagination begins, either good or bad! 

    But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. II Corinthians 11:3

IMAGINE

    "Imagine there's no heaven, its easy if you try, no hell below us, only sky." Imagine-John Lennon, 1971

    Subtle lyrics to sway your judgment and lead you into "Fantasy-land!""No rules, just right," as the slogan says, think of all the people who worshiped the idols of rock that took this lyric to heart as well as the other millions of songs that fill the mind with vain imaginations!

    Back in the day when LSD and other psychedelic drugs became fashionablethe minds of thousands were opened to demonic possession and some died, and others never came back such as Syd Barrett of Pink Floyd! So much talent given over to the devil to use in his schemes to destroy God's creations!

    If you have allowed the devil to control you or dominate your mind with vain imaginations, then do this: repent and ask God to cleanse your thought life with His blood and bind up those thoughts and loose them into dry places! Begin to commit your mind to God and establish the mind of Christ, inventory the thoughts that enter and take captive those that are sent as flaming missiles from the enemy!

    Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Galatians 6:7,8

OUR WEAPONS OF WAR

    For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. II Corinthians 10:4,5

    We don't wage war with flesh and blood but against the unseen forces of darkness. The powers of darkness have been attacking mankind for thousands of years, robbing, killing and destroying millions of unsuspecting victims. In order for one to defeat them you must discipline yourselves to use the weapons you were given!

    One of your most powerful weapons is the sword of the Lord, the word of the living God. To use it effectively one must study it, meditate on it and fill your mind and heart with it so as to force vain imaginations out! When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness the devil tried to get Him to doubt who He was, but Jesus used His sword, the Word of God to defeat him; but beware and be on the alert because the devil knows the word better than you and will use it against you as he did with Jesus!

    Today we have a multitude of enemies to deal with as everything is geared to distract you, enlighten you and fill your mind with that which is vain and worthless. The Internet and your cell phone are two of the most destructive tools of the devil when allowed to feed your thought life! God has given us armor, weapons and the Holy Spirit to guide us, but you have to choosewhether you will be diligent to use them and to fight your enemies because many have refused to fight!

    Above all, taking the shield of faith with which, you will be able to quench all the fiery darts (vain imaginations) of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation (knowing who you are in Christ) and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:16,17

UNDERSTANDING THE NEW MAN

NEW CREATIONS IN CHRIST PART III

     Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things become new. II Corinthians5:17

    When one is born again the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within his spirit and begins to remodel the old dwelling with all things new! The old man is crucified, buried and then resurrected to new life with all the old things (deeds of the flesh) passing away!

    The question is: "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation." For one to be in Christ, Christ must first be in him! To many this is a mystery for someone to indwell another, but that is the miracle of the new birth! To believe is the invitation for the Lord Jesus to inhabit your temple and to transform it to be His spiritual dwelling place!

    Imagine being One with Jesus, One with God, and One with Holy Spirit, it doesn't get any better than that, to be One with the Triune God! We are not just old sinners saved by grace, although we are saved by grace, but we are the temple of God on earth, a holy dwelling place in the Spirit!

    "And the glory which You gave Me, I have given them, that they may be one just as We are One; "I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in One, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me." John 17:22,23

LIVING STONES 

    Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:4,5

    With Christ's death, burial and resurrection the old covenant was replaced with a new and better one, the temple was eventually destroyed, and the old priesthood done away with, and we began a new and living way!

    The new dwelling on earth would be constructed of living stones gathered by the Holy Spirit and knit together in love! No longer a place to go, the new temple of God would be housed in human hearts, washed in new covenant blood and filled with Holy Spirit power! A supernatural dwelling place making up the earthly expression of the Lord Jesus Christ!

    As individuals we are a new covenant priesthood made up of born-again believers offering up spiritual sacrifices and performing the greater works of the Lord Jesus on earth as it is in Heaven. A supernatural race of new creations to invade the darkness and bring forth the light and glory ofthe Gospel of Jesus Christ! The "New Man" is now a reality on the planet, a living, breathing supernatural body of the living Christ, fully human and fully God!

    But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. I Peter 2:9

BEHOLD I MAKE ALL THINGS NEW

    That you put on the "New Man" which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:24

    It is my summation that many are trapped somewhere between the Old Testament and the new. Not fully understanding the new covenant or the new creation transformation they are not sure of their eternal position, nor their true relationship with God!

    When one is truly born again, there is a transforming of his heart, mind and soul by the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. He begins to lose his humanistic world views and worldly mindset and begins to be renewed in his mind and heart. The love of God is poured out upon his heart and his love for the unlovely begins to appear!

    It is my expressed intention in this new devotional teaching to expose the darkness of tradition and the doctrines of demons we have received through church and dead religion, and to illuminate our new position in Christ as a "New Man." 

    Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the Chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. Ephesians 2:19-22

Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin

UNDERSTANDING THE NEW MAN
YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! PART II

    "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3

    Salvation is only through the "New Birth," not by any other means, keeping the law, being baptized, going to church or doing good works cannot save you! There is only One way and that is through the shed blood of Jesus, believing in His death, burial and resurrection that forgives all of our sins!

    One night a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews came out to Jesus to ask Him about His teachings and said to Him, "We know you are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him." Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." "Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old?

    Nicodemus asked Jesus, "How can these things be?" Jesus answered and said, "Are you a teacher of Israel and do not know these things?" This is because Nicodemus only knew about the old covenant, not knowing about the new covenant God was initiating! This is why Israel has to be saved just the same as the Gentiles!

    "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God." John 3:5

BORN OF THE SPIRIT

    "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." John 3:6

    Nicodemus didn't understand the new birth, being under the law of the old covenant! Jesus was explaining how someone is born of the flesh but has to be born again to live forever in the Spirit. In order to be born again one must believe in Jesus, ask for forgiveness and repent of his sins!

    In essence Jesus was the first New Man, born of a virgin, living a sinless life and dying for all mankind. He was buried and resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit. From the resurrected life of the Lord Jesus came the new birth of the New Man! A chosen generation of people washed in new covenant blood, anointed with Holy Spirit power and crucified with Christ!

    We are born again as spiritual beings destined to rule and reign in the power of God's Holy Spirit, more than conquerors we have all authority over the powers of darkness and have spiritual giftings that heal, deliver, transform and bring about edification to other believers! Through the shed blood of Jesus, we have been delivered from the power of darkness and conveyed (transferred) into the kingdom of the Son of His love.

    And so, it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being." The last Adam (Jesus) became a life-giving Spirit. I Corinthians 15:45

WE SHALL BEAR THE IMAGE OF JESUS

    The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from Heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man. I Corinthians 15:47-49

    When we are born of the flesh, we inherit the characteristics and certain traits of our parents, so it is when we are born again, we inherit the characteristics and supernatural traits of Jesus. In other words, we are re-created in the image of Christ!

    As born-again new creations in Christ we become the supernatural representation of the Lord Jesus Christ in the earth! Vessels of honor who contain the Holy Spirit and have the vison and mission of Jesus with the mind and heart of God! From men and women of dust we through the divine metamorphosis become men and women supernaturally transformed into heavenly beings who become His body in the earth!

    Who could have ever dreamed of such a miraculous feat, to change human beings into heavenly ones? Only by the divine plans drawn from the vaults of heaven's splendor through the thoughts and visions of the Most High God could something so wonderful come forth!

    Now this I say brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: "We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." I Corinthians 15:50-52

UNDERSTANDING THE NEW MAN

WHAT IS REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY? PART I

    Replacement Theology is a Christian doctrine which asserts that the New Covenant through Jesus Christ supersedes the Old Covenant, which was made exclusively with the Jewish people. In Christianity, supersessionism is a theological view on the current status of the church in relation to the Jewish people and Judaism.

    In my 42-year journey with Jesus, I had never heard the term, Replacement Theology until a couple of years ago I was accused of believing in it! A brother in the Lord who followed our ministry for a couple of years, gave offerings to the ministry and was regarded as a good friend read a message or devotional that mentioned the "New Covenant" and you would have thought I had blasphemed!

    I was stunned by his accusation not knowing what I was being accused of, so I quickly Googled it and saw what it was and tried to explain to him my view on the subject, but it was to no avail, and he demanded to be taken off the mailing list! Being grieved in my spirit I apologized to him for offending him but ever since it has bothered me, so I decided to write about it!

    But now Jesus has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises. Hebrews 8:6

THE FIRST COVENANT IS OBSOLETE

    Jesus said, "A new covenant," He has made the first covenant obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. Hebrews 8:13

    The replacement theology folks think that God didn't keep His promise to Israel, but in fact He not only kept His promise, He made it better! It would be like your uncle died and left you his will and testament with an inheritance of one million dollars! Then the lawyer calls and says, "We found a revised will of your uncle and he has left you two million dollars, making the first will obsolete!"

    The Greek word for obsolete means, out of date, no longer practiced, discarded, grown old and worn out! In other words, Jesus has made the Jews and us as Gentiles a better covenant with better promises! The problem for Israel is because they have rejected the new covenant in Christ, they are left out of the benefits being lost and rejected by God! People act like Israel are God's special kids, but the church, the Bride of Jesus Christ are somehow second-class citizens!

    If it is true that Israel is under the old covenant and believers are under the new, then why did the Jewish disciples of Jesus get saved and filled with the Spirit and the 120 Jews at Pentecost? When Jesus died on the cross the veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom by the angels, symbolizing the end of the old priesthood and the sacrifice of animals for atonement!

    But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is not of this creation. Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. Hebrews 9:11,12

THE APOSTLE'S PRAYER FOR ISRAEL

    Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer for Israel is that they may be saved.For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness and seeking to establish their own righteousness have not submitted to the righteousness of God. Romans 10:1-3

    Imagine being a Jew who is faithful to the old covenant, sacrifices his goat or calf at the temple and believes that once a year atonement for his sins are dealt with by the High Priest and then after hundreds of years it is over and there is a new way to get saved, by believing in the reported Son of God, born of a virgin!

    This is why it is so hard for the Jews to believe, because of years and years of tradition handed down through the ages. Old habits are hard to break and to believe that their One God has now somehow come to earth as a human from the womb of a virgin is a hard pill to swallow! Son of God, no way, it is impossible and so they refused to believe what God was actually doing for them!

    Jesus is the new way for man to be saved from his sins and redeemed, not by the law or by the blood of bulls, but by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, Savior and Deliverer of all mankind including the children of Israel!

    For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. Romans 10:4

THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS AGE

 

    For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

    In this age we have multiple rulers, whether Presidents, Dictators, Prime Ministers, Trible chiefs, elders and even Pastors! All are not rulers of darkness, only the ones that are demon possessed! The truth of the matter is this: man in his lost condition is corrupt, no matter how good he seems to be, he is still born into corruption until he is born-again!

    Unless we have spiritual eyes to see and discern good from evil, we cannot know what is going on around the entire world! The political realm has gone absolutely stark raving mad, especially here in America, with criminals being let out of jail, crime out of control, police defunded and no consequences for lawlessness! This is not just the liberal left, it is totally demonic, boys wanting to be girls, drag queens in schools, porn and CRT allowed to be introduced to elementary students and so on!

    Because we have entered the last days, the devil has now manifested his deeds out in the open, robbing, killing and destroying anything or anyone who opposes him. You see it on the nightly news, stores robbed with no one stopping them, people pushed in front of trains, people beaten in the streets, hit with bats and stabbed out in the open! Murder, rape and robbery openly displayed out in front of the world to see, all committed by demon possessed criminals!

    While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. II Peter 2:19

LAWLESSNESS WILL ABOUND

    "And many will be offended, will betray one another and will hate one another. "Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. "And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold." Matthew 24:10-12

    Jesus told His disciples what was going to happen in the future, and we are seeing it fulfilled in this age! It seems when the presidential election was stolen with no one to stop the demonic onslaught that the "Woke" generation appeared as well as the "Cancel Culture!" Now everyone is offended, and it has caused hate and bitterness to flourish as a poisonous root!

    In the midst of this confusion and deception, false prophets have arisen, not only in the church but in the world, spreading lies, and so we have entered the age of "Mis-information!" Social media has become a major player in the world with demonically led rulers of darkness promoting lawless agendas and lies, dictating to the world what we are to say or not say!

    Believers around the world must stand against this invasion of lawlessness by promoting and preaching the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ! Governments cannot change men's hearts through political means or by voting for the right man or woman! Only by repenting of one's sin and believing in Jesus can man be saved and transformed into a new creation in Christ!

    For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He (Holy Spirit)who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the away. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. II Thessalonians 2:7,8

THE COMING OF THE LAWLESS ONE

    The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved. II Thessalonians 2:9,10

    For centuries we have had rulers of darkness, demonized people terrorizing their kingdoms and killing innocent citizens! Today we have a prime example, Vladimir Putin, who has taken it upon himself to attack Ukraine in a bloody hostile takeover! The West seems paralyzed with the fear of losing their precious oil provided by Russia and our helpless so-called leaders have destroyed America's ability to be energy independent!

    The devil has possessed many around the world as we enter the time of the "Lawless One," destined to rule the world and proclaim himself as god! China, Iran, North Korea and even here in America, an entire administration is possessed with demons and led by their demonic influence! Our own President is in bondage to a small squad of Marxist zealots who dictate their agenda to our government and in one year have literally destroyed our reputation, economy, civil rights and have trashed the constitution!

    As the darkness falls, the light of the Lord Jesus must shine brightly to a lost world, no more religious nonsense, dead church services or worldly programs, but only the preaching of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost! Imagine you were on the Titanic as she slowly began to sink into a watery grave after hitting an iceberg! People were crying out for mercy as they saw their own death approaching in the cold dark ocean and hundreds died. Now fast-forward to today with millions who have no clue that their lives are sinking into Hell! Their only hope is for us to give them the truth that can set them free!

    But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. II Thessalonians 2:13,14

DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME

    And Jesus took bread, gave thanks and gave it to them and broke it, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me." Luke 22:19

    What was Jesus saying? Remember what I looked like, which none of us do, and all I can think of is that horrid picture of Him with greasy hair on every church wall and Sunday school room! No, Jesus was telling His disciples and us to remember what He did for us on the cross!

    The benefits of the finished works of Calvary are almost unimaginable for the human mind to conceive! First of all, He did away with sin, our ancestors' sins and the sin of Adam that everyone inherited! He took it upon Himself to become sin that we might be set free from its effects which lead to death! By the thirty-nine stripes on His back (which some physicians believe there are thirty-nine root diseases that cause all disease!) He healed all of our diseases and at the same time pardoned all of our iniquities!

    This is what true communion is about, remembering what Jesus did for us on the cross and what the outcome for us is to be for His suffering. Communion is our sharing of His suffering and the benefits of His death, burial and resurrection given as a free gift for all of mankind to enjoy!Within this message we will see what remembering Him is all about, and what it is not for those who take it in an unworthy manner.

    For God made Jesus who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. I Corinthians 5:21

MASS CONFUSION

    Therefore, whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. I Corinthians 11:27

      Contrary to popular belief the Catholic Mass performed daily around the world is not a Christian sacrament, nor is it communion as most tend to believe; but in actuality it is an abomination to God and to the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Note: The ceremony of Mass is called transubstantiation, the ability for the priest to bring down Jesus from Heaven and sacrifice Him again, turning Him into the host or wafer commonly known as the Eucharist. Thus, the unsuspecting participant is eating the flesh of Christ Himself. In other words, Jesus is offered up every time this is given as a sacrifice to atone for man's sin. The scripture declares that Christ died once!

 

    On the other hand, the evangelical communion in most cases is taken in an unworthy manner because of our worship of God or lack thereof, and our blatant disobedience to His word. Taking communion with the bread and wine is only part of our worship of God, our life is a living sacrifice given wholly into His service. Communion and fellowship mean the same and cannot be separated.

 

    Confusion is a violation of nature and the divine order and is likened to having sex with animals in God's eyes. It also means to mix, mingle or confuse, to mix oneself with others, such as unbelievers and includes sexual perversion and incest. Our co-union with God through the shed blood of the Lamb is called Koinonia or fellowship and having all things in common!

    For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this reason, many are weak and sick among you and many sleep. I Corinthians 11:29,30

ONE ACCORD

    "That they all may be one as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in us, that the world might believe You sent Me." John 17:21

    Being One with Jesus and One with God and the Holy Spirit is hard for us to discern, but that is our destiny as believers, to be One with the triune God! I doubt we will totally understand this mystery until we are there at the very throne of the Most High!

    The fellowship of the 120 was a complete sell out, knowing one another as brothers and sisters, meaning they were a spiritual family, bound together in covenant through the blood of Jesus shed for us all! Today we are hard pressed to even know who we are fellowshipping with or even know their names, much less being brothers and sisters in Christ!

    I was fortunate in my early years to be in home fellowship groups, small bodies of believers who were intimate with one another, knowing their hearts and loving one another in Christ! Today we must make it our intention to be One with each other in small groups communing in the Spirit and taking communion together, remembering our Lord Jesus Christ and His many benefits given to us!

    "Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes. I Corinthians 11:24-26

TO KNOW

    "To you it has been given to know the mysteries (secrets or hidden truths) of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables." Luke 8:10

    As disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ our spiritual eyes have been opened to the unfathomable mysteries of God! "To know" is part of our inheritance in Christ. Jesus said that to the rest or to the lost it is given in parables, a simple story used to illustrate a spiritual lesson.

    Imagine the possibilities of knowing the mysteries of God's kingdom, which includes the entire universe! How He created it, all of mankind, the animals and everything that exists. To us it has been openedbut to the world their eyes are shut to the supernatural works, miracles and secrets of God!

    Although this great blessing is given to us who believe, many don't take advantage of this ability to see into the supernatural realm because of apathy or just downright laziness! Jesus said, "Seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened, ask and it will be given." There are no limitations to the spiritual gift of knowing! 

    Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer (debater) of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. I Corinthians 1:20,21

WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?

    When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Phillipi, He asked His disciples, saying, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" Matthew 16:13

    Jesus was testing His disciples concerning their discernment of spiritual revelation and who He in fact was! They didn't have a clue, because they were relying on what men said and not the Holy Spirit.

    Peter on the other hand said, "You are the Christ, (anointed One) Son of the living God." Jesus was amazed at Peter's statement and proceeded to say to him, "Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in Heaven." Jesus said that on this rock (not Peter) I will build My church, meaning that His followers would have revelation knowledge of spiritual things and not the wisdom of man!

    Many today, including some main-line denominations think that Jesus was saying that Peter was the rock but in fact He was saying that revelation knowledge, directly from the throne of God would be the foundation of His church!

    "And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on the earth will be loosed in Heaven." Matthew 16:19

BE STILL AND KNOW

    Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, (wicked) nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law (word) of the Lord and in His law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:1,2

    This is one of the keys of the kingdom that Jesus spoke of, meditating on the word of God! The Hebrew word for meditate is hagah, a primary root meaning to murmur or to ponder. In other words when we read a scripture, we ponder its meaning and spiritual revelation to us and mutter to ourselves what it means.

    To meditate is like chewing a prime cut of meat, savoring its flavor until the taste is gone. It is not about quantity but the quality of what you retain of the scripture and its revelation to you. When I was just beginning my walk with God over forty years ago my pastor taught me these valuable keys in receiving revelation from the word. He also taught me to "Journal the Journey," to write down what God is saying so that in time of need it will speak comfort and peace to your spirit.

    In Psalm 46:10 the scripture tells us: "Be still and know that I am God." In other words when you begin to seek God, be quiet, find a daily time to be still before Him so that all the worries and cares of this world are drowned out by the silence of God's holy presence. Then and only then can you hear the still small voice of the Holy Spirit who gives you living water so that you can grow in the grace of God!

    He shall be a tree planted by the river of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:3

CONCERNING THE COMING OF THE LORD

    Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by a spirit (demon) or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. II Thessalonians 2:1,2

    The apostle Paul was exhorting the Thessalonians not to be deceived or shaken up by anyone saying that the "Day of the Lord" had come! But even though many have proclaimed His eminent return and deceived many, even so, Jesus said, "You shall discern the signs of the times." In other words you will see that the time is near!"

    The disciples asked Jesus what would be the sign of His coming and the end of the age and Jesus answered and said to them, "Take heed that no one deceive you." Then He proceeded to tell them about false prophets, earthquakes, wars, famines, pestilences, and that many would be offended and lawlessness would abound!

    We who are on the earth in these last days have seen these signs and they are all present before our very eyes! But then Jesus said that these signs were only the beginning of birth pangs. When a woman is about to give birth the pains begin and as they grow closer together the baby is about to be birthed and so it is with the coming of Christ!

    Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin (lawlessness) is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped so that he sits as God in the temple, showing himself that he is God. II Thessalonians 2:3,4

 RESTRAINED BY LOVE

    And now you know what is restraining that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He (Holy Spirit) is taken out of the way. II Thessalonians 2:6,7

    The Lord has been showing me a vision in my mind of the earth with chains all around it, restraining it from any movement, but the earth began to grow, not physically but demonically as if the powers of darkness and spirits of lawlessness were expanding and trying to loose themselves from their bonds.

    This I believe is the beginning of darkness covering the earth and the powers of darkness loosed to rob, kill and destroy. This is a time for us, the people of God to reap a harvest of souls because the time of His return is near. True, no one knows the hour or the day, but Jesus said we would see the signs of the times.

    When the anti-Christ appears and Holy Spirit is taken up, so shall we be taken from the earth as the tribulation runs its course and the earth suffers greatly without hope! We as the church of Jesus Christ must arise and be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. As darkness and delusion become prevalent, so we should become lights to the lost and dying, spreading the message of life eternal!

    And then the lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the work of Satan, with all power, signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. II Thessalonians 2:8-10

CAUGHT UP WITH CHRIST

    For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. I Thessalonians 4:16,17

    It is a danger to stop what you are doing in the Lord and sit down and wait for the trumpet to blow! We as the body of Christ must work the works of God by preaching the gospel, winning souls, and doing the greater works Jesus said we would do until the very end.

    The harvest is truly white and as Jesus said, the laborers are few. Millions are dying without Christ and we are the only light they have in order for them to receive the good news of their salvation! I have never seen so much darkness before in my life as I see now throughout every facet of life, here and around the world.

    The powers of darkness are running rampant without restraint, robbing, killing, and destroying everything in their way and socialism is invading governments around the globe, including America, heading toward a "One World Government" and the imminent appearance of the anti-Christ. So, with this in mind, stand firm, sword in hand and look up, your redemption draws near!

    "I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day, the night is coming when no one can work." John 9:4

THE SUPERNATURAL CHURCH

    "I will build my church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail or be victorious against it." Matthew 16:18

    This will begin a new series of devotions, "The Supernatural Church” in which we will see the Divine design, construction, and commission of the true Church of Jesus Christ! Notice in the above-mentioned scripture who it is that is building it! Jesus!

    Today when we think of the word church, immediately our minds picture many things such as preaching, singing, fellowship or just a plain white building with pews and a steeple. For some, maybe boredom, religion, or dry and dusty services and preachers begging for money, but one thing is to be remembered, church is not a place to go, but a Person to be, the body of the risen Lord in the earth comprised of born again, new creations in Christ!

    There are literally thousands of churches, denominations, sects and cults around the world, many of which are doing their best to serve the Lord, but others are trying to pervert the word and deceive you! The main problem is most are man-made and not God-ordained and they use the same design that worldly corporations use, a pyramid run by a CEO. Many look good and are mega-churches filled with millions of members with superstar preachers with best-selling books and travel the circuit in their private jets.

    Don't get me wrong all of this is not necessarily bad, just built without a blue print which greatly hinders its effectiveness. Remember who the architect and builder of the church is, Jesus! You would never dream of building a house without a blueprint drawn by an architect orregistered engineer, but most churches are started by renting a building, filling it with chairs and advertising their grand opening, hoping to fill it with tithers.

    In this new series I will attempt to show how the Lord builds His church, who He uses and what its intent in this world is. The most powerful entity in the world must be built according to the Divine design, with the heavenly specifications and by using a God chosen architect, the apostle!Open your mind and your heart to the truth of God's holy temple, made of living stones, tried by fire and set apart for His purposes on the earth!

    For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, you are God's building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 3:9-11

THE GOD WHO ANSWERS BY FIRE

    "Then you call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord; and the God who answers by fire, He is God." I Kings 18:24

    The prophet Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal and Asherah to a duel of sorts by calling upon their gods to answer them by fire and consume their sacrifice. The false prophets built their altar, laid a bull upon it and cried out to their gods to answer them by fire! They yelped and cried out all day, but to no avail and Elijah mocked them saying that maybe their god was asleep or on vacation, but still no fire!

    This is what it is like today, men build their churches, fill it with chairs, advertise their services and even give away prizes and use all kinds of gimmicks to get people to come to their church! But that is all it is, "Their church!" No fire, no power, no miracles, only a dead and lifeless system of dry and dusty programs, tradition and ultimately, spiritual death! Many are even "Mega Churches" with thousands of attendees sitting comfortably in their theater seats, having their ears tickled, feeling good about their eternal souls as they slip into the darkness of Hell!

    Elijah is a type and shadow of the Lord Jesus Christ, a prophetic overview of the divine model of the yet to come modern day assembly of believers, called out as living sacrifices, washed, filled and sent to be the vessel that contains His character and divine nature!

    Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Psalm 127:1

THE DIVINE MODEL

    Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:4,5

    Elijah, a type of Christ built his altar with twelve stones, a shadow of the twelve apostles and symbolic of the government of God. Twelve is the number of the government of the Most High: twelve tribes, twelve disciples, twelve months in the year, twelve hours in the day and twelve hours in the night, not to mention the measurements of the heavenly Jerusalem in Revelation, as well as many other references in scripture.

    Once the stones were laid, a trench was dug around it, the wood placed upon the altar and the sacrifice, also a type of Christ. Then Elijah had twelve water pots poured out on the stones, the wood and the sacrifice, filling the trench, representing the washing of the water of the word of God. This is the prophetic view yet to come of the church of Jesus Christ built of living stones, washed in the water and the blood, Jesus Christ our sacrifice, the Chief Cornerstone!

    Elijah then called upon the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob in the sight of all the people to send fire from Heaven down upon the altar of the Lord, the future church of the Lord Jesus Christ! The fire of God fell and consumed the entire altar: the stones, the wood, the sacrifice and licked up the water, representing the Holy Spirit poured out at Pentecost!

    Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, "The Lord, He is God! The Lord, He is God!" I Kings 18:39

HOLY SPIRIT FIRE!

    "You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8

    Jesus had spent three years training His twelve disciples, lost one, but one more was elected, after the demise of Judas, Mathias. It is interesting that the apostles thought it necessary to have twelve apostles! God's government. If we build God's living temple His way it will always be fruitful and multiply!

    The ministry of Jesus had multiplied into 120 called out, on fire disciples, "Only 120 you say?" You would think there would be thousands, after all He healed their sick, cast out demons and even raised their dead, but they were only interested in His benefits and not in following Him! This is where the wheat is separated from the tares, by obeying God's word to follow Jesus and to make disciples, He didn't command us to start churches, He commanded us to make disciples!

    If you are fishing on the wrong side of the boat and are not seeing the fire fall or disciples being trained, equipped and sent, then repent and throw the old wine skin out! Be about your Father's business, the old Priesthood is dead and gone, nailed to the cross and a new way is here and Jesus is that way! Model your ministry after His ministry and you will see the fire of Heaven fall upon everything you set your hand to do! "Be Fruitful and Multiply!" The anointed Church of the Firstborn is not a place to go, it is a Person to be, the body of the living Lord Jesus Christ! Praise be to God!

    And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:2-4

OVERCOMING FEAR, DOUBT AND UNBELIEF

    For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba Father." Romans 8:14

    Fear is the opposite of faith and it stops all the forward motion of the believer, being a scheme of the devil. The spirit of fear holds millions of people in bondage, many who are totally crippled by it, even to the point of being agoraphobic!

    When King David approached Goliath, a nine foot behemoth of a man, trained in battle from his youth and armed to the teeth, he wasn't afraid because his faith was not in his own ability but in the power of God. Even though the giant taunted him with fearful words and threats he didn't waver but kept his eyes on God who was going to deliver him.

    As believers we face many giants who test our faith, whether disease, or debt or trials and tribulations, it is by our faith we overcome and are victorious in Christ and in the power of His might and not our own! Remember who you belong to and to whom you serve and God will fight for you and win the battle against the fear that comes to attack you! Fear not!

    For God has not given us a spirit (demon) of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7

DOUBT

    "Have faith in God. "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.' " Mark 11:22,23


    Doubt is another tactic of Satan that he employs to defeat us by trying to convince us that we are not really who we say we are: "Born again spirit filled believers!" In fact he tried this very scheme on Jesus when He began His ministry.

    The Lord Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan river, the heavens opened and God spoke in an audible voice, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased" and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him like a dove. Jesus was ready to begin His ministry and was led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit on a 40 day fast. When the fast ended and Jesus was tired and hungry the devil approached him and said, "If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread."

    If? Was there any doubt who He was? No! Satan has the audacity to try this scheme on everyone because he knows if you doubt who you are in Christ you are defeated already! Jesus answered him and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.' " When you are approached by the spirit of doubt, use the sword of the Spirit, the word of the living God to defeat it and don't ever forget who you are in Christ even though the devil tells you otherwise!

    If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. James 1:5-8


UNBELIEF

    "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." Mark 11:24


    Faith is a substance according to Hebrews 11:1 of things hoped for and hope is our confident expectation, in other words when we believe we exercise our measure of faith and like a muscle it becomes stronger the more we work out. Faith without works is dead!

    A father brought his son to Jesus to cast out a deaf and dumb spirit and he had asked His disciples but they could not do it, and Jesus said, "O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you?" Jesus told the father to believe and all things would be possible to him and he said, I believe, help my unbelief! Jesus then commanded the demon to come out of the boy and enter him no more and the boy was delivered!

    Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness, Peter walked on water, and throughout the scripture men and women believed God and were rewarded for their faith. We as believers have the promise of doing greater works than Jesus did if we will only take Him at His word and believe!

    But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE-POSITION YOURSELF IN THE KINGDOM

POSITION YOURSELF IN THE KINGDOM
 
    I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am corrected. Habakkuk 2:1
 
    We are in the midst of extremely important times concerning the end of the age, the body of Christ and our position within it. The powers of darkness are warring with the saints in an unprecedented battle as we approach our eternal destiny.
 
    This past week the Lord has been speaking to me about position, not our position in Christ, although it involves that too, but our position in the perfect will of God for us personally. Many believers have been distracted from their divine calling, being busy about many things, even ministry or by various trials and tests.
 
    The world is reeling out of control, being bombarded by demonic attacks and devilish schemes designed to disrupt and create chaos within governments, including America, the last outpost for the distribution of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying sin-sick world! The last great harvest is at hand, a time to make disciples and train, equip and send them to do likewise instead of building fleshly kingdoms of pride and greed.
 
    Therefore since Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. I Peter 4:1,2
 
STAND YOUR WATCH
 
    The end of all things is at hand, therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. Above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins." Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. I Peter 4:7-10
 
    As the scripture says, we are to stand our watch and set (position) ourselves on the rampart, a defensive structure or fortress, a type of our being in Christ. Our watch involves guarding that which God has given us and asking for the vision for our individual service in His kingdom.
 
    Imagine the organs in your human body not knowing what their specific function is, it would be chaotic to say the least, bringing about certain death. Now imagine the most powerful entity in the world, the church of Jesus Christ in the same predicament, not knowing what their specific calling is in the body of Christ, also creating spiritual death and paralysis.
 
    The purpose of this word of knowledge is for you to pray for position in His kingdom and to stand your watch, listening for the vision He will send you. Without a vision we perish for lack of knowledge of what we have been put on this planet for, our individual calling.
 
    Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Ephesians 6:14-16
 
THE VISION
 
    Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie, though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:2,3
 
    God gave me this word in 2012 as I began a new journal, something He taught me from the beginning of my journey with Jesus, to write down what He speaks to me and to record the answered prayers and miracles He gave me and His vision for me in His kingdom.
 
    We are called to be His body in the earth today, to display His miracles, healing and deliverance to a dying world in need of salvation. You are not called to be a success and accumulate wealth for yourselves, but to give your life away to those in need. I have seen and preached many funerals in my life with Christ but I have never seen anyone take one thing out of this world except what he did for Christ.
 
    We will all stand before Him one day and render an account of what we did in the body at "The Judgment Seat of Christ" where our good works will either stand or burn up in the bonfire of His glory! Remember, the only difference between the sheep and the goats is what they did and didn't do!
 
    For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Now, "If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?" Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator. I Peter 4:17-19

CONNECTING WITH GOD-THE SHEPHERD, THE VINE AND THE BREAD

    "That they all may be one, as You Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me." John 17:21

    In order for us to connect with God as intimately as Jesus spoke and for us to become One with Him relates to a man and woman becoming one flesh in marriage. Joined together with the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.

    Within this message we will see what it means for us to enter that relationship of being one with God. First, the Shepherd prepares us to eat and drink without distraction being our provider and protector, next the Vine is our life source, being connected to Him we abide and dwell in Him forever, and lastly the Bread is our communion with the Son making us sharers in His fellowship.

    The Shepherd, the Vine and the Bread are our divine connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, our co-union, co-munnion and co-mission in life, to be Joint-Heirs with Jesus, seated as One in heavenly places in Him!

    "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent." John 17:3

THE SHEPHERD

    The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me besides the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His namesake. Psalm 23:1-3

    Sheep are the only animal needing human oversight and we as spiritual sheep also need the Good Shepherd's loving care for us. In order for the sheep to eat of the green pasture they have been led to, they must be free from distractions, such as flies, mosquitoes and other pestilence and so it is with us; we must also be free from that which robs us of our quiet time with God.

    Once we are still and quiet, the revelation of His word begins to enter our spirit, giving us spiritual nourishment that sustains us and allows us to grow and mature, without which we would die. Next, we are led to still waters because rushing water scares the sheep so they won't drink. Once they are able to drink of the water of life they become tranquil and at rest, free from fear and the anxiety of life.

    This is the beginning of the divine connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that one can only obtain by seeking their presence and being still so that they can receive spiritual life. Many today who claim to be believers are too busy with their lives and distracted with the worries of the world and the cares of this life and so they shrivel up and die spiritually! For those who allow the Shepherd's care, their soul will be restored and they will be led on the narrow road of righteousness.

    You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:5,6

THE VINE

    "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." John 15:5

    It was once said by a visiting dignitary, "It is amazing how much the American church has been able to accomplish without the Holy Spirit." This statement is so true with the advent of Mega churches, programs of all kinds and with the promotion of their ministries sent around the world by TV.

    Jesus said, "My house shall be a house of prayer." He never meant for His true ekklesia (assembly) to be a stadium of lost pew sitters attending once a week to get their ears tickled by some Prima-donna, a term from opera given to the first woman who were often egotistical, demanding and flamboyant. Sound familiar? Jesus also warned us that there would be many false prophets and teachers in the last days!

    The very first expression of Christ's body waited on the outpouring of Holy Spirit upon them to receive power and anointing as they connected to the life giving vine! Today we are to be an abiding citizen of the very vine of God, receiving spiritual nourishment and the life of the Spirit. A branch cannot ever leave the vine and if it does, it quickly dies, never to be connected again! Abide, dwell and remain!

   "If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. "By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so that you will be My disciples." John 15:6-8

THE BREAD

    "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst."John 6:35

    Jesus Christ is the bread of life for all who would make Him Lord and partake of the spiritual nourishment He gives. Jesus told His disciples that unless they ate His flesh and drank His blood they would not have His life in them. This term of eating His flesh and drinking His blood describes the covenant we enter upon making Him our Lord.

    The Greek word, Koinonia means fellowship, communion, sharing, intimacy and intercourse, the desired relationship we have with the Lord Jesus and with one another. When we are saved, His blood supernaturally washes us from sin and when we partake of His word it supernaturally nourishes our spirit with divine revelation.

    This is our life in the Spirit, to become one with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in fellowship and communion, sharing and connecting in a divine love relationship. Deeper than any human emotion, it will fulfill you and feed you with the supernatural power of divine revelation, giving you the benefits of becoming spiritual sons and daughters of the Most High!

    "And the glory which you gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one; I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have love Me." John 17:22,23
