Drinking from many waters renders a person incapable of hearing a true living word. If one drinks from many waters he/she is receiving input from both the spirit and soul realm. Some of the waters may well have God in them, but it’s the mixture that kills the capacity to hear accurately and discern the true from the false. Continue reading
There must be a foundation laid for additional truths to be built upon. And just like the new testament was built on the foundation of the true apostles and prophets, so will the kingdom be built on the foundation of a royal priesthood that goes beyond that of the apostles and prophets, those that throw down their crowns at the manifestation of the Son.
I am constantly reading messages, articles, etc., addressing the need for oneness in the body of Christ. Many write of how doctrinal differences continue to separate God’s people. There seems to be an innate need within many Christians to somehow rectify this division and separation. It will never happen, at least not in the way imagined. We must understand God’s methods. We must also understand His ultimate goal. Continue reading
1 ¶ Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
2 For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, And like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty That we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.
3 He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
4 ¶ Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
The above verses were prophesied about Jesus’ earthly ministry. Verse three states He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Verse four tells us Jesus bore our griefs and carried our sorrows. But what does this all mean? It means He loved to the point that His heart was grieved and filled with sorrow over the unwillingness of His people to open their hearts to Him. Continue reading
The realm of spirit is governed exclusively from a scientific standpoint. Scientific means the word of God is the only basis of reality. We move in the scientific realm of spirit through our faith in what God has spoken. The realm of soul is governed by emotions which are continually vulnerable to the condemnation of satan. So easily we get bogged down in the realm of soul. “I can’t, I’m not able, I feel this, I feel that” are constant phrases that indicate we are locked into the soul realm. Paul said, “I can do all things through Him who strengths me.” Faith does move mountains. It moves the soul realm mountains that keep us out of the victory and presence of the Lord. Grace is very scientific. It’s scientific because it’s based solely on God’s word. Grace is contrary to all the demands of religion. How hard it is sometimes to accept the grace of God, and how easy it is to stand in His presence once we accept His grace.
We still have much to learn about the grace of God. In the realm of spirit there is no cause and effect. This means when the plumb line of God’s word exposes our lack, we are not to have the mindset of stressing over seeing something in our lives that we think must change. The word that exposes the lack becomes our deliverance from Adam’s shortcomings. Continue reading
There can be only one fulfillment in this hour. We cannot look to stop-gap measures and call it fulfillment. While it may sound spiritual, we cannot look to see God raise up “anointed” men or women to displace the rule of the antichrist spirit in the earth. If our expectations are only to see godly men and women in the place of authority in our respective countries, we have missed the word. When Israel cried for a king in the days of Samuel, God was grieved. He gave them the desires of their hearts, and Saul was anointed king. Afterwards, even when godly men such as David sat on the throne, it was but a substitute for the true Kingship Israel rejected. Continue reading
There must be a perseverance to see the house of the Lord completed. Continue reading
