GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO GOD’S WAY OF SPEAKING

GLORY TO GLORY
June 4, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO GOD’S WAY OF SPEAKING: Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, I have believed, and therefore have I spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak, [Ps. 116:10.] (II Corinthians 4:13)
_______________________________________________________________________
TRUTH FOR TODAY

Authority MUST have a voice! Whose voice, your voice and my voice! For circumstances, sickness, and even demons to obey, they all must hear a command first! When we speak based on faith in Jesus Christ who is the Word of God, circumstances and situations must obey us. By what authority one might ask? By the authority delegated to us by Jesus Christ! (John 14:12, Matthew 28:18-20) Farther down we will look at one more scripture from the mouth of Jesus to you and me! To walk and live in our authority we must receive the word of God on a personal basis! We must make it our own!

Now for the heart of the matter. This is where true personal change must take place. Our way of thinking, speaking and acting or God’s. Truthfully, most of us settle for some type of blend. Let’s help each other out here.

IT WON’T WORK THAT WAY!
We have to quit allowing our circumstances, troubles and problems to speak to us! We must speak to them through our authority granted to us by the King of Kings Himself! When we do so they will hear and obey! One man said, “I tried that once and it didn’t work, nothing changed so I quit it.” Well, that’s the problem. Faith doesn’t quit thinking, speaking or acting. We are to hold fast to our confession which is the true believers profession.
Here are a few more scriptures to meditate:

Joshua 10:12-Joshua spoke to sun and the moon.
Mark 5:39-Jesus speaks to the storm as He commanded it to cease.
Matthew 21:19-Jesus spoke to the fig tree. The account in Mark 11 states that Jesus answered the tree!

As we read on in Mark 11 Jesus teaches the disciples and us the core principle to be learned by the fig tree event.

“And Peter remembered and said to Him, Master, look! The fig tree which You doomed has withered away! And Jesus, replying, said to them, Have faith in God [constantly]. Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him. For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it]. And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop.”

THE QUESTION IS; WHAT ARE WE SAYING TO AND ABOUT THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT WE FIND OURSELVES IN?
WHAT DO WE BELIEVE AND THEN WHAT DO WE SPEAK?

WHAT WE BELIEVE AND WHAT WE SPEAK WILL EVENTUALLY DETERMINE OUR OUTCOMES.

JESUS SAID, “OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART, THE MOUTH SPEAKS.”

LET’S EARNESTLY LISTEN TO OURSELVES TODAY AND HEAR WHAT WE ARE SAYING AND THEN MAKE THE NECESSARY CHANGES TO LINE UP WITH THE WORD OF GOD!
WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN

GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO GOD’S PERFECT PEACE

GLORY TO GLORY
May 26, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO GOD’S PERFECT PEACE: “You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].” (Isaiah 26:3)
_______________________________________________________________________
PERFECT PEACE TO ALL!
Today as I spent time with my God, I was reminded of all the believers whose minds are not at peace. I can be included in this number at times. Many people are saved but for one reason or another are stuck in worry, sadness, misery and disappointment.

I have a question for all of us today. Do we really believe God means what He says and says what He means? Do we believe that God is good for His word? Is God’s word true?

The above word of the living God who is the same yesterday, today and forever says that He will guard us and keep us in perfect and constant peace. That is his part!

We too have a part in this. What is it? We are to stay our mind on Him? Can we have perfect and constant peace without staying our mind on Him? That is not what He tells us! But often we are trying to take the shortcut to perfect and constant peace of mind. It has never worked that way and never will! God instructs us what to do!

God never leaves us hanging for direction like so many teachers do today, speaking in half truths. He tells us how to stay our minds on Him in order to be at a place to receive His perfect and constant peace of mind.

He tells us to stay our minds on Him. We need to commit ourselves to Him, lean on Him and hope confidently in Him. The hope expressed here is not world hope, but earnest expectation with a future assurance! In order to mature as Believers to this point, it is vital that we spend time with God and His word! Half measures will avail nothing!

We need to get to a place in our lives where we can hear the voice of God. So many today are looking for great signs, confirmations, etc….How did Elijah hear the voice of God or more accurately how did God speak to Elijah?

“And He said, Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord. And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire [a sound of gentle stillness and] a still, small voice.” (I Kings 19:11-12)

It is through a state of perfect and constant peace of mind that we will hear that still, small voice!

I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine can peace afford.
o Refrain:
I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior,
I come to Thee.
WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN

GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO LIBERTY

GLORY TO GLORY
May 22, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO LIBERTY: Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom). (II Corinthians 3:17)
_______________________________________________________________________
WE ARE CALLED TO LIVE IN LIBERTY
The work of Christ at the cross is our emancipation proclamation! We are to be totally free of all bondage! Today, I want us to see two important factors regarding our liberty and our Lord!

The Greek word for liberty here denotes a slave purchased by a god who could not pay the money for himself. Upon the purchase at the temple, a document was drawn up with the words “for freedom.” Once the purchase was complete, no one could enslave him again for he was the property of the god. The word actually means “free man.” In the scripture above it refers to the “liberty” of the access to the presence of God!

The act of Jesus freeing us is a complete act! Christ did not liberate us to bring us into another form of bondage, but in order to make us completely free from any and all bondage! JESUS DIED, AROSE AND ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN AND BOUGHT OUR TOTAL FREEDOM! (Yes, I am shouting and so should we all.)

Now let’s look at the foundation and vital key to our liberty. It is found in the word “Lord.” The Greek word means supreme in authority, having power and authority, complete master and owner!

In order to live our lives in total freedom from bondage, we must make Jesus the Lord of every area of our lives! There is no other way! I know from my own experiences there have been area of my life that I have not made Jesus supreme in authority and my complete master and owner. Not surprising I continued to struggle in those areas until I did turn them totally over to the supremacy of my Master.

For each of us, the areas that cause to stay bound, that we stubbornly hang unto may be different. It is time to take a personal inventory to see where we have not given a particular aspect of our life to the total authority of the Master! Maybe it’s addiction, fear, worry, our health, our finances, our relationships, selfishness, our own worldly desires, etc… The list is endless on that side of the ledger. On the other side of the ledger we find simple completeness-freedom and liberty.
Free indeed!

Purpose today not to live one more minute in any kind of bondage. Christ made you free. Let us make Him Lord and Master of every area of our lives. Most of us know exactly what those areas are! But let us also ask the Holy Spirit to show us where we have not yet turned our lives over to the Lordship Of Jesus!

TODAY, RECEIVE THE LIBERTY THAT JESUS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR.

IN [this] freedom Christ has made us free [and completely liberated us]; stand fast then, and do not be hampered and held ensnared and submit again to a yoke of slavery [which you have once put off]. (Galatians 5:1)

WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN

God’s Promise for You Today: YOUR DAYS WILL BE MULTIPLIED: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and the years of life will be added to you.” (Proverbs 9:10-11)

GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO WALK IN YOUR DESTINY

GLORY TO GLORY
May 14, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO WALK IN YOUR DESTINY: For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. (Jeremiah 29:11-12)
_______________________________________________________________________
TIME TO RISE UP AND WALK
God has a plan for each of us. But most of us will never live fully in the manifestation of that plan. We will live below par in the things of God. In golf, below par is a good thing. In the Kingdom of His love for us, it is not.

There as many reasons that we do not walk out God’s plan for our lives as there are people. I believe one of the biggest reasons is fear. We fear many things and then fail to truly trust the word of the living God! Fear will keep us where we are and trust will project into the present and future that God has for us!

Much of today’s perverted teaching tells us that Jesus did it all and that by grace we don’t have to do anything! This belief system will keep you in bondage!

God has given us things in His kingdom through the extension of the grace provided by the cross. No doubt about that! But we must possess those things which God has provided for us! I said we must POSSESS those things that God has provided for us through the life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension of His Son-OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR!

I want you to look at a story in Numbers which paints a similar picture of many believers today! It is the story of Joshua and Caleb and the ten other spies. God had called men from each of the tribes to go scout out the land. First Numbers 13:2-
“Send men to explore and scout out [for yourselves] the land of Canaan, which I give to the Israelites. From each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader or head among them.”
Then Numbers 13:30-
“Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once and possess it; we are well able to conquer it.”

The 12 went and spied the land and ten came back with a bad report. Jacob and Caleb came back with a different report-a report that lined up with God’s word!

This is what I want you to see. First, God stated that he had given the land to the people! That should have settled the matter. After their return and hearing the bad report of the ten and listening to complaining of the people, Caleb made a tremendous statement of faith and trust in the word of His God! He said, “Let us go possess it.”

He knew that God had said that He had already given the land to His people. He also knew that they had to go POSSESS the land! He also knew that they were well able to possess that which God had already provided for them.

The ten spies died shortly after their report. Joshua and Caleb went and possessed the land.

GOD HAS PROVIDED THINGS FOR US. IT IS UP TO US TO POSSESS THEM. HOW?

FAITH AND TRUST IN WHAT GOD HAS SAID TO US! FAITH THINKS, FAITH SPEAKS AND FAITH ACTS!!! FAITH WILL BANISH THE FEAR AND DEFEAT WHICH SO EASILY COMES UPON US. FAITH COMES BY FEEDING ON THE WORD OF GOD AND THEN POSSESSION COMES BY LIVING A LIFE OF FAITH!

LET US PURPOSE ON OUR HEARTS TODAY TO POSSESS EVERYTHING THAT GOD HAS ALREADY GIVEN US!
WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN
God’s Promise for You Today: YOUR DAYS WILL BE MULTIPLIED: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and the years of life will be added to you.” (Proverbs 9:10-11)

GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO ABIDE IN HIS PRESENCE

GLORY TO GLORY
April 29, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO ABIDE IN HIS PRESENCE: He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand]. I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! (Psalm 91:1-2)
_______________________________________________________________________
IN HIS PRESENCE THERE IS BURDEN REMOVING YOKE DESTROYING POWER!

TODAY, many are living in an atmosphere of heavy burden brought about by the trials of life. Brothers and sisters, this is not God’s will for us! Carrying burdens will cause us to be worried, anxious, and sick, live in lack and keep us in a perpetual state of frustration and defeat-far short of what God has for us! What then is the answer?

The answer will take some effort on our part, but it is worth it. WE NEED TO GET IN HIS PRESENCE AND STAY THERE UNTIL THE BURDEN AND ITS CRIPPLING WEIGHT LEAVES US! In his presence is where our faith meets His grace and His perfect will for our lives comes to pass.

What I am going to say next is very important. Notice that I did not say that the problem would immediately go away! The burden will be lifted! It is not the problem that defeats us. It is the pressure and oppression that Satan brings with the problem that causes to become weakened. Once we shed the burden, we can move in the authority of Jesus Christ to defeat the problem. “IN ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS!”

We must be determined to spend the time with God that it takes to become free of the burdens of life. Five or ten minutes won’t do it. Stay in His presence until you feel the weight of the burden lifted!

TODAY OUR PRAYER FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU IS WHAT PAUL PRAYED IN 1 Corinthians 1:4-7.

“I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,”

GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO GOD’S POSSIBILITIES

GLORY TO GLORY
April 24, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO GOD’S POSSIBILITIES: Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for Me? (Jeremiah 32:23)
_______________________________________________________________________
ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO HIM WHO BELIEVES-GLORY TO GOD!

May the peace, love, glory and power of the Living God permeate your very being today and charge the atmosphere around you!

As I was meditating on the above scripture today, I realized that many of us at times fail to grasp the magnificent ability of our Father who loves each of us beyond measure. Just consider for a moment of the power and potential impact of what Paul prayed in Ephesians 1.

“And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],” (Ephesians 1:19-20…This is just two verses from Paul’s prayer to believers. I encourage you to prayerfully read and meditate the whole prayer. Also read the one in Ephesians 3-MAKE BOTH OF THEM IN THEIR ENTIRETY YOURS!)

Let us never forget that GOD IS THE PERFORMER and that we are the believers! Abraham lived within this truth and had his being in its reality. SO CAN WE! How did he do it?

[For Abraham, human reason for] hope being gone, hoped in faith that he should become the father of many nations, as he had been promised, So [numberless] shall your descendants be. [Gen. 15:5.] He did not weaken in faith when he considered the [utter] impotence of his own body, which was as good as dead because he was about a hundred years old, or [when he considered] the barrenness of Sarah’s [deadened] womb. [Gen. 17:17; 18:11.] No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God, Fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised. (Romans 4:18-21)

Let us learn how we can walk in God’s power.
1. Abraham did not weaken in faith when he considered his circumstances.
2. He did not permit unbelief or distrust to allow himself to waiver at the promises of God.
3. He grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God!
4. He was fully satisfied and assured that God would do what He promised!

Let us rise up and believe the word of God today! Believing and faith are not passive but active!

Know what you believe, speak what you believe and act on what you believe!

WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN

God’s Promise for You Today: YOUR DAYS WILL BE MULTIPLIED: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and the years of life will be added to you.” (Proverbs 9:10-11)

GOD’S COVENANT-HIS GIFT OF LOVE TO US

GLORY TO GLORY
April 20, 2016
GOD’S COVENANT-HIS GIFT OF LOVE TO US-“We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might [habitually] live and behave in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4)
_______________________________________________________________________

LET US RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE REALITY OF THE RESURRECTION!

It has been said that the Gospels give us a snapshot picture of what Jesus did for us and that Paul gave us an x-ray of what the life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension did for us! Today and everyday let us prayerfully meditate on what Jesus did for us! More important, let each of us receive (make it our own) it and walk in the NEWNESS OF LIFE! In the Greek newness of life means “life of a new quality, being a new creation, to behave consistently with this in contrast to our former manner of life. The phrase stands for the new life of the quickened spirit of the believer, it is impossible to dissociate this from the operation of the Holy Spirit, by whose power the newness is rendered.”

Two of my favorite verses regarding resurrection power which is available to EACH AND EVERYONE OF US are:

“And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places]” (Ephesians 1:19-20)

“[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power out flowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]” (Philippians 3:10)

See that Paul says that we have the resurrection power in us and for us! It is no wonder he then states that his main objective is to know the out flowing of the resurrection power. How? Through becoming progressively more deeply and intimately acquainting himself with Jesus and thus perceiving, recognizing and understanding the wonders of Jesus and what he accomplished for us!

The word power in both verses is the Greek word “dunamis”. It means miraculous power, mighty works, ability, miracle worker, etc…. It is God’s power in action!

BELIEVERS, BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS DID FOR US, THAT POWER IS AVAILABLE TO EACH OF US! IN EPHESIANS 3:10 PAUL GIVES US A VITAL KEY INTO TAPPING INTO AND WALKING IN THAT POWER! ALSO, SEE JOHN 14:12!

TODAY, LET US PURPOSE AND RESOLVE TO OBTAIN AND WALK IN THE POWER OF THE VICTORY THAT JESUS GAVE US!

MAY EVERYDAY BE FILLED WITH RESURRECTION POWER!
WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS! WALLY& JAN

GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO WALK AS JESUS

GLORY TO GLORY
April 16, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT- A CALL TO WALK AS JESUS: “Whoever says he abides in Him ought [as a personal debt] to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He walked and conducted Himself.” (I John 2:6)
________________________________________________________________________
TO ALL- LET US PURPOSE IN OUR HEARTS TO WALK AS HE DID:
Greetings in the name of Jesus, the name above all names. There is power in that name. Once we are born again, we take the name of Jesus on as our new family name. Not only do we get His name for our own, but we also get His mind, His nature, His inheritance and all that He is. How do we manifest His nature and who He is in us? We feed on His Word continually. In doing so, we will begin to think His thoughts, we will begin to speak His words and we will begin to walk as He walked and do the deeds that he did. Look at the truth and reality in what He told us in John 14:12:

“I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.”

The key is to rise to a point where we actually believe what Jesus said and then actually walk in the reality of who we are IN HIM!

One day in Cuba, we had a particularly long day. We were stranded most of the day in sweltering heat as our 1955 Chevrolet Belair blew an oil hose on an isolated country road, miles from anywhere. We waited hours for a farmer to tow us to the nearest village where a patch up repair job could be performed. Finally the hose was fixed and we headed for home, about 50 miles away. It was now very late and Jan and I along with our Cuban pastor and driver were exhausted. We looked ahead with great anticipation to reaching our little room and sweet sleep.

However we were soon to see that the challenges of the day were far from over. Shortly after we left the place where the car repairs were completed, a torrential downpour engulfed us. Visibility was almost zero, but the homeward instinct drove us on. Jan and I were in the back seat and I tried to peer through the small area of the windshield the miniature windshield wiper was desperately trying to keep clear. The rain blanketed the windshield from the outside and our breath fogged it from the inside. To add to our plight, semi trucks were hurling at us at 60-75 miles an hour. Every time they would come at us, their headlights had a blinding effect and then when they passed us, their spray totally obscured the windshield.

A good time to get nervous and rest on the verge of sheer panic, right? WRONG!!!!

I looked over at Jan and expected to have to encourage her to relax, but what I saw in her face was total calm. God took me to the storm through which Jesus slept until awakened by His disciples who feared greatly for their lives. Jesus slept because His Father had told Him to go to the other side. That is what he told His disciples when they left the shore. He had absolutely no doubt that if He was “going to the other side”, He would get to the other side.

Here is what God spoke to me. (And as He spoke, my being was filled with His light. (I mean filled!) This is a tremendous revelation of who Jesus is in us and who we are in Him. It blew over me like a mighty wind that night. CATCH THE WIND and your life will change forever! Here it is………..

IF JESUS CAN BE AT PEACE IN THE MIDST OF A GREAT STORM, SO CAN I!-AND SO CAN YOU!

The conclusion of what He revealed to me that stormy night was this. WALK AS JESUS WALKED. This, my dear friends is not the end of the story. It is simply the end of the beginning. As I have said before, Let’s do this together! Your life, my life is about to take a new glorious turn resulting in an intimacy with the Father and our Savior that we have not yet walked or lived in!
COME, LET’S TAKE THE MASTER’S HAND.
WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN

God’s Promise For You Today: YOUR DAYS WILL BE MULTIPLIED: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by me your days will be multiplied, and the years of life will be added to you.” (Proverbs 9:10-11)

GOD’S COVENANT OF TRUTH AND FREEDOM-3

 

LIVING WATER

 

March 16, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT OF TRUTH AND FREEDOM- “Examine and test and evaluate your own selves to see whether you are holding to your faith and showing the proper fruits of it. Test and prove yourselves [not Christ]. Do you not yourselves realize and know [thoroughly by an ever-increasing experience] that Jesus Christ is in you—unless you are [counterfeits] disapproved on trial and rejected?” (II Corinthians 16:5)
_________________________________________________________________________
TO ALL: DESIRE TO BEAR THE FRUIT OF OBEDIENCE!

Last time we began looking at the words of Jesus concerning abiding in His word and walking out life in truth and in freedom. Again, I ask the question, why teach this? Simple, if we want to be, do and have what the word says, we have to do what the word says. I want to walk in the fullness of God and our heart is for all believers to walk in the victory, bought and paid for by Jesus, our Lord!

Tomorrow we will continue with the word study of John 8:31-32,36. But today I want to pause a moment and reflect on my commitment to hear and do what the word teaches. I mean, to reflect on my relationship with the Father and His word as it applies to EVERY area of my life. I invite you to do the same.

In today’s scripture, we see Paul instructing the Corinthians (and us) to examine, test and evaluate themselves to see if they are indeed walking life out in faith and subsequently bearing the proper fruit. Notice that he said the “proper” fruit. We will produce one fruit of one kind or another. But we can see that there is a fruit which is proper. Fruit produced by a spirit filled life of faith.

I find a key word here to be “examine”. In the Greek it means to scrutinize, to pierce or search into. I must examine and test myself in the light of my applied faith and resulting fruit. If I am coming up short in areas of my life, Paul says it is not Christ, but me.

Where is the greatest disconnect between what God promises us and what we actually manifest? Let’s see what Jesus said about people, His word and what prevails on our life. Look at Luke 6:46-49. Keep in mind as you prayerfully meditate the following scripture that Jesus did not say storms would not come in a believer’s life. He said what the outcomes would be for those that hear but do not do and for those that hear and then do the word.

Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not [practice] what I tell you?
For everyone who comes to Me and listens to My words [in order to heed their teaching] and does them, I will show you what he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug and went down deep and laid a foundation upon the rock; and when a flood arose, the torrent broke against that house and could not shake or move it, because it had been securely built or founded on a rock. But he who merely hears and does not practice doing My words is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation, against which the torrent burst, and immediately it collapsed and fell, and the breaking and ruin of that house was great.

Join me in this self- examination. We have given far too much away for far too long by not knowing God’s word or by knowing it and not doing it! This is not a day and time when we can afford to be slackers where the word of God is concerned. As the saying goes, “half measures avail nothing.” I would slightly disagree with this old saying. Half measures will avail something. They will produce “improper fruit” consisting of worry, anxiety, lack, discouragement, sickness, despair and defeat. Let us prayerfully examine ourselves! I have a question for you? What’s at stake in your life and the lives of your loved ones?

If you live in Him, you will bear much fruit! Jesus said it and we believe it! How about you?

We love you. Be blessed. May the God of light fill your hearts and lives with light and liberty!
A Guiding factor is always: THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND!

GOD’S COVENANT OF TRUTH AND FREEDOM-PART 2

LIVING WATER
March 12, 2014
GOD’S COVENANT OF TRUTH AND FREEDOM- “The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life, but [still] some of you fail to believe and trust and have faith.” (John 6:63b-64a)
_________________________________________________________________________
GLORY AND PRAISE TO JESUS WHO IS GOD’S WORD!

We have been talking about the vital importance of God’s word in our lives. A misconception that we no longer need to hear and obey God’s word because of God’s grace towards us is rampant in today’s church. This deceit will cause many sincere Christians to be powerless and live a life of defeat, anxiety, worry and depression.

I have a question for you. When did the words (instructions) of God and Jesus (the same yesterday, today and forever) stop being spirit and life? The answer: THEY DIDN’T! We will see later that Paul and the other New Testament writers admonished the believers of the church age, of which we are a part of, to be hearers and doers of the word!

THE APPLIED WORD OF GOD IN OUR LIVES IS ABSOLUTLEY VITAL TO WALKING IN THE POWER AND PROMISES OF GOD. GRACE GETS US IN TO THE KINGDOM AND THEN WE HAVE TO LEARN AND GROW IN THE THINGS OF GOD TO REALIZE (THROUGH PRACTICAL APPLICATION IN OUR LIVES) THE FULLNESS OF WHAT JESUS DID FOR US!

The word life that Jesus spoke of is the Greek word “Zoe”. It means in the absolute sense, life as God has it. Of this life men became partakers of through faith in the Jesus! His words to you and me are the very life and nature of God!
I WANT THAT IN MY LIFE.

Now let’s go back to where we ended yesterday.
“So Jesus said to those Jews who had believed in Him, If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples. And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.” (John 8; 31, 32, 36)

Notice that Jesus is talking to believers. The very next word is “if.” That would make what follows conditional. To be true disciples we need to abide in His word, hold fast to His teachings and live in accordance with them!

Let’s go a little deeper here. The Greek word for “word” here is logos. It means the divine expression. The expression of divine thought-not the mere name of an object…the revealed word of God. The Greek word for “abide” is meno. It means to stay in a given place, state, relation or expectancy.

Was His Father’s word, His Father’s divine expression important to Jesus? And then did He think it was important for us? Absolutely! He said “IF” we abide in it (hold fast to His teachings and live in accordance with them, if we stay in them in relationship and expectancy) then we are His disciples.

Over the years, we have come to the place where we throw around these Christian phrases without considering their proper implications. They have become hollow and meaningless. What does the word disciple mean in the Greek? It means
“a learner” indicating thought accompanied by endeavor. Where do we start becoming a disciple of Jesus, the Lord of Lord and the king of Kings? Jesus tells us, by abiding in His word!

We will pick it up here next time. I realize that for many this is not a fun message. So why teach this? Simple, if we want to be, do and have what the word says, we have to do what the word says. We want to walk in the fullness of God and our heart is for all believers to walk in the victory, bought and paid for by Jesus, our Lord!

WE LOVE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS- WALLY & JAN
