His Joy

Posted: September 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

[Neh 8:10 NASB] 10 Then he said to them, “Go, eat of the fat, drink of the sweet, and send portions to him who has nothing prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”

[Zep 3:17 NASB] 17 “The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.

[Jas 1:2 NASB] 2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,

One of the names of God is Simchath Gili which means God of my exceeding joy
[Psa 43:4 NASB] 4 Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy; And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.

[Gal 5:22 NASB] 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
[Psa 51:12 NASB] 12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation And sustain me with a willing spirit.

Living Faith

Posted: September 4, 2017 in Uncategorized

Living faith

[Mar 9:23 NKJV] 23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things [are] possible to him who believes.“

[Mar 11:22-23 NKJV] 22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 “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.

Having faith in God

[Gal 3:26 NKJV] 26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

[Col 2:5 NKJV] 5 For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your [good] order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.

[2Ti 1:13 NKJV] 13 Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

Faith – a relationship with faith starts when we are born in Christ Jesus.

Faith of Christ

Eph. 4:13 [Wuest] – until we all attain to the unity of the Faith and of the experiential, full, and precise knowledge of the Son of God, to a spiritually mature man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ,

The faith of Christ makes everything we have relationship with ALIVE

Living God – giving Life

[Luk 20:38 NASB] 38 “Now He is not the God of the dead but of the living; for all live to Him.”

[Jhn 4:10 NKJV] 10 Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”

[Jhn 7:38 NKJV] 38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.“

Living Father – sending Life

[Jhn 6:51, 57, 69 NKJV] 51 “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” … 57 “As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. … 69 “Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Everything someone LIVING touches receives Life.

Living relationships

[1Pe 2:4-5 NKJV] 4 Coming to Him [as to] a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God [and] precious, 5 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.

[Heb 4:12 NKJV] 12 For the word of God [is] living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Living Way

[Heb 10:19-20 NASB] 19 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh,

[Jhn 14:6 NASB] 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

The breaking of His flesh opened the Way into Life. Breaking of the natural and visible gives us access to the Living God. By the Blood of Jesus we enter in.

Pray in the spirit

Posted: August 27, 2017 in Uncategorized

[Eph 6:18-19 NKJV] 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints– 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,

[Jde 1:20-21 NKJV] 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Winds or rivers of revival

Winds – movement of air from a particular direction. No origin (John 3:8 – comes and goes and no one knows the origin)

Rivers – flow of water from high altitudes to low. Does have an origin, source.

[Jhn 7:38-39 NKJV] 38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet [given], because Jesus was not yet glorified.

Typical revivals

  • They start with good preachers in different parts of the world (possibly)
  • Everyone is feeling a special presence of God
  • They are producing soul commitment and desire for God on one side, and hate for sin on the other
  • End result is more on fire preachers that spread the revival

Sonship revival

  • Starts from the Word, already seeded in the hearts, but quickened by the Father.
  • Produces first the revelation of the Spirit – Son of God. A Son has been given.
  • The soul life, with commitments and fears of commitments is laid down, plowed and cleansed. The soul is to manifest the Son
  • This revival produces a desire to multiply the Son: bring many sons to glory. Suddenly, the same revelation of Him is found in the person next to you. The revival is spreading.

Agreement to grow

  • [Deu 32:30 NKJV] 30 How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight,?
  • [Psa 91:7 NKJV] 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; [But] it shall not come near you.

1 – 1,000

2 – 10,000

3 – 100,000

4 – 1,000,000

………….

8 – 100,000,000,000

We agree to release growth of God’s Kingdom on the earth.

The identity of a revival – many sons

[Rom 8:29 NKJV] 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined [to be] conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

[Heb 2:10-11 NKJV] 10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom [are] all things and by whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified [are] all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,

The identity of a Body, One with many members, awakens an army of glorious sons. This ushers the revival of Oneness.

 

Restoring Kingship

Posted: August 21, 2017 in Uncategorized

Kings and priests

[Rev 1:4-6 NKJV] 4 John, to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6 and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him [be] glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Moses ministers as servant

[Heb 3:5 NKJV] 5 And Moses indeed [was] faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken [afterward],

Moses had all 3 from a servant perspective. The 3 separated:

  • Aaron priesthood came from Moses thinking is too much.
  • Prophetic (Samuel) came after priesthood failed.
  • First king (Saul) came from the people rejecting the Lord (1 Sam 8:5-7)

Jesus ministers as Son

[Heb 3:6 NKJV] 6 but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.

Christ has in Himself all the 3 from a Son perspective. He brought all 3 back into One:

  • Priesthood according to the order of Melchisedec (Heb 7)
  • Prophet – one with the Word of God, speaking the Word of the Father
  • King – not of this world but of the living Kingdom

Sons in the kingdom

  • Priests – 1 Pet 2:9 – offering tithes and intercession (life giving spirits)
  • Prophets – 1 Pet 4:11 – speaking as the oracles of God. Becoming the Word as we are born of it.
  • Kings – Rev 1:5, Eph. 6:12 – authority over the heavenly places (second heaven) and influencing the earth through that.

Kings among brethren – serving

[Luk 22:25-27 NKJV] 25 And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ 26 “But not so [among] you; on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves. 27 “For who [is] greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? [Is] it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves.

Put others ahead of you.

Kings in the Kingdom – life giving

[Gal 5:6 NKJV] 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.

[Eph 6:23 NKJV] 23 Peace to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Love is the substance of the Kingdom of God. The servants are to be loved as they serve the kings.

The 2 kingdoms

[Jhn 18:36 NKJV] 36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.“

[Col 1:13 NKJV] 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed [us] into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

[1Co 15:24 NKJV] 24 Then [comes] the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.

[Rev 12:10-11 NKJV] 10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

The identity of a revival

Posted: August 19, 2017 in Uncategorized

The identity of a revival

[Act 3:19-21 NKJV] 19 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 “and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, 21 “whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.

Refreshing – a recovery of breath, revival

Restoration – reconstitution, back to the primary state

Times of restoration – promise of a son

[Isa 9:6-7 NKJV] 6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of [His] government and peace [There will be] no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Times of restoration – Hezekiah

[2Ki 16:20 NKJV] 20 So Ahaz rested with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the City of David. Then Hezekiah his son reigned in his place.

[2Ki 18:3-5 NKJV] 3 And he did [what was] right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father David had done. 4 He removed the high places and broke the [sacred] pillars, cut down the wooden image and broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made; for until those days the children of Israel burned incense to it, and called it Nehushtan. 5 He trusted in the LORD God of Israel, so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor who were before him.

Restore to a previous state, by removing what was done wrong in previous generations. But he failed redeeming the new generation.

Times of restoration – new creation

[Eph 2:13-18 NKJV] 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, [that is], the law of commandments [contained] in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man [from] the two, [thus] making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. 18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.

Not ‘fixing’ the old but a brand new Man

[2Co 5:17-18 NKJV] 17 Therefore, if anyone [is] in Christ, [he is] a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

[1Co 15:47-49 NKJV] 47 The first man [was] of the earth, [made] of dust; the second Man [is] the Lord from heaven. 48 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. 49 And as we have borne the image of the [man] of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly [Man].

The identity of a revival – a son

[Rom 8:29 NKJV] 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined [to be] conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

[Col 1:15 NKJV] 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

The new creation, the son of God, is the identity of the personal revival. This ushers the revival of many.

From curse to blessing

Posted: July 22, 2017 in Uncategorized

Turning the curse into blessing

[Deu 23:5 NKJV] 5 “Nevertheless the LORD your God would not listen to Balaam, but the LORD your God turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the LORD your God loves you.

Turned – Become, Changed, Be converted, transformed

Blessing destroys the curse

[Mat 5:44-45 NKJV] 44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 “that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

[1Pe 3:9 NKJV] 9 not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.

Jesus was made curse for us

[Phl 2:8 NKJV] 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to [the point of] death, even the death of the cross.

[Gal 3:13-14 NKJV] 13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed [is] everyone who hangs on a tree”), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus
Replaces the Law of Sin and Death (Romans 8:2)

Genesis 3:16-19        vs. New Genesis

(16) To the woman He said:

“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.”

New Genesis

(16) To the Bride He says: I will greatly multiply your joy in reproducing My life; children shall be your crown of life; your desire shall be for your bridegroom, Jesus, And together with Him will inherit the kingdom.

(17) Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life.

New Genesis

(17) To the Second Adam He says: “Because you have eaten of the Tree of Life, My Body and drank My blood, “I will quicken the ground, your earthly vessel; strength will be multiplied to you as you live by My faith.”

(18) Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, And you shall eat the herb of the field.

(19) In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return.”

New Genesis

(18) Beautiful fruit of the Spirit will be your delight, And the will of your Father will be your daily food.

(19) The words of Grace will be your daily bread until you will accomplish your eternal purpose, For you came from above, from your Father, You are spirit, and One with the Spirit you shall be.
