you are the Word

Posted: July 23, 2018 in Uncategorized

HEBREWS 4:12

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart

Proverbs 23:6-7

“Do not eat the bread of a miser [a person who hates to spend money; a very stingy person], nor desire his delicacies; 7) For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.  ‘Eat and drink!’ he says to you, But his heart is not with you.

Romans 14:23

But he who is uncertain [about eating a particular thing] is condemned if he eats, because he is not acting from faith.  WHATEVER IS NOT FROM FAITH IS SIN [WHATEVER IS DONE WITH DOUBT IS SINFUL].

Galatians 2:20

I am crucified with Christ:  nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me:  and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me

Philippians 2:13

For it is God which works in you both

to will and to do of his good pleasure.

WE ARE THE WORD OF GOD

John 1:1-3, 14

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

Hebrews 2:14-15

14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,

15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

1 John 4:17

Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

Ephesians 5:29-30

29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.

30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.

John 8:12

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Matthew 5:14

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

1 Peter 1: 23

having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptiblethrough the word of God which lives and abides forever

1 Corinthians 15: 45

And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

John 5:21, 26

21 For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will.

26 For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself,

27 and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.

JESUS’ EXAMPLE ON THE GROUND

Hebrews 12:2

[looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity]

John 11:25

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

John 11:42-43

And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”

43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”

Luke 9:16

Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude.

Matthew 26: 26

And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”

Matthew 3:15

But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him.

Matthew 8:16-17

16 When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick,

17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”

John 5: 17

But Jesus answered them, “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.”

JESUS WAS GROWING UP JUST LIKE US

Luke 2: 52

And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and men.

FATHER’S EXAMPLE ON THE GROUND

Isaiah 55:11

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void,

But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Jeremiah 1:11-12

11 The word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see the branch of an almond tree.”

[The almond tree was known as the “awake tree” because

it was the first tree to bud in the new year (late January).

It was the symbol of watchfulness]

12 Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am [actively] watching over My word to fulfill it.”

WHAT WE ARE NOT

Luke 15: 4

“What man of you, having a hundred SHEEP, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?

Psalms 123:2

Behold, as the eyes of SERVANTS look to the hand of their masters, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to the Lord our God, Until He has mercy on us.

WE ARE BECOMING THE WORD

IN OUR SOUL AS WELL

THE PROMISES IN THE SCRIPTURE

=

OUR DESCRIPTION

2 Peter 1:4

by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature.

Philippians 2:5-6

5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,

6 who, although He existed in the form and unchanging essence of God [as One with Him, possessing the fullness of all the divine attributes–the entire nature of deity], did not consider it robbery to be equal with God

WHY ARE WE EVEN HERE ON THIS PLANET?

1 Corinthians 3:6

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.

Galatians 6:7

7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked;

for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

8 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.

9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Romans 14:5

One person regards one day as better [or more important] than another, while another regards every day [the same as any other]. Let everyone be fully convinced (assured, satisfied) in his own mind.

James 1:6-8

6 But he must ask [for wisdom] in faith, without doubting [God’s willingness to help], for the one who doubts is like a billowing surge of the sea [a very strong and powerful wave] that is blown about and tossed by the wind.

7 For such a person ought not to think or expect that he will receive anything [at all] from the Lord,

being a double-minded man, unstable and restless in all his ways [in everything he thinks, feels, or decides].

James 2:20, 26

20 But do you want to know, O foolish man,

that faith without works is dead?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead,

so faith without works is dead also.

Matthew 5:13

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?

It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

FUNNY OLD TESTAMENT EXAMPLE

James 5:17-18

17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.

18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.

And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab “As the Lord God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years,

except at my word.”

1 Kings 18:41-44

41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.”

42 So Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees,

43 and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.” So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.”

44 Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, “Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.”

Not flesh and blood

Posted: June 25, 2018 in Uncategorized

[Mat 16:13-19 NKJV] 13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” 14 So they said, “Some [say] John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed [this] to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 “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 earth will be loosed in heaven.”

[1Co 2:12, 16 NKJV] 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. … 16 For “who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

[Phl 2:5-7 NKJV] 5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, [and] coming in the likeness of men.

The compressed way

Posted: June 9, 2018 in Uncategorized

Narrow gate and compressed way

Mat. 7:13 Enter through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road, the one that leads away to ruin and everlasting misery. And many there are who are constantly entering through it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and compressed is the road, the one which leads away into the life, and few there are who are finding it.

Thlebo (Gr.) – compressed

  • to press (as grapes), press hard upon
  • a compressed way
  • narrow straitened, contracted
  • metaph. to trouble, afflict, distress

Knowing good and evil

[Gen 3:22 NKJV] 22 Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever“

Knowledge of good and evil: knowledge of creation from Him, but not of Him. Life and death are in words that create. He created darkness and light, night and day by His Word. Hell has to exist as it was created at the same time when heaven was.

Eternal Life: Knowing Him

they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

God is ONLY Good. Knowing Him is Eternal Life.

The order and priority of knowing is important as KNOWING HIM (Eternal Life) will allow you to create. Knowing only good and evil will keep you locked in the Creation, under its laws.

The compressed way and the narrow gate are caused by the reduced (to nothing) the options of the good and evil. But the options will get infinite AFTER going through the gate.

This is the reverse of the ones being on the spacious road.

What are the compressed way signs?

1.You cannot judge your circumstances by the outside, but ONLY by the promise.

[Isa 54:1-3 NKJV] 1 “Sing, O barren, You [who] have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, You [who] have not labored with child! For more [are] the children of the desolate Than the children of the married woman,” says the LORD. 2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes. 3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations, And make the desolate cities inhabited.

  1. You cannot call things good or evil according to other people’s opinions. Your Father is ONLY Good.

[Isa 5:20 NKJV] 20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

[Mar 10:18 NKJV] 18 So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one [is] good but One, [that is], God.

[Exo 4:2-3 NKJV] 2 So the LORD said to him, “What [is] that in your hand?” He said, “A rod.” 3 And He said, “Cast it on the ground.” So he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it.

Things that we hold in our hand are not what they look like until we laid them down.

  1. Do not give yourself other options. Jesus told the rich guy to sell everything and follow Him.

[Mat 19:21-22 NKJV] 21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

Why did Jesus told him that?

Because Jesus did not want the rich man to measure success in following Him by the increase of possessions, but only by Knowing Him.

  1. You cannot judge others for what they got or what they don’t have. Your only purpose is to go through the narrow door.

[Phl 3:13-14 NKJV] 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

The ‘modified’ Gospel to fit everyone has NO power. Jesus came to bring ONE thing: Eternal Life.

  1. This way is preparing you for the narrow gate which is the entrance in abundant Life. The good or bad of what you experience is less important. The process is more important than the outcome. Because the process changes you to be like Him.

[Phl 4:11-13 NKJV] 11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

[Jas 1:2-4 NKJV] 2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have [its] perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing

Spiritual ages

Posted: June 9, 2018 in Uncategorized

RELATIONSHIPS IN AGE GROUPS

[1Jo 2:12-13 NKJV] 12 I write to you, little children, Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake. 13 I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him [who is] from the beginning. I write to you, young men, Because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little children, Because you have known the Father.

While we are placed as spiritual mature sons in Christ when we are born again, the maturity of our precious souls is in a growing process. It is becoming as we already are in the Spirit, One with Him. The growth has 2 aspects:

1.Removing everything that is of the old by the revelation of the finished work of Christ on the Cross

Renewing the mind into the New Creation which is exactly like Christ.

Little Children (sheep): they are followers and highly dependent of others; connect to social life, from outside in

  • Their rules of life are based on needs (food, protection, family).
  • They cannot discern between fleshly commandment (Heb 7:16) and life giving words. Legalistic.
  • Connect with a known man of God for safety and food. Verify the authentic by listening to the voice and testing the true shepherd in case of an attack(John 10)
  • Their activity is earth related (Col. 3:1-2)

Starting on the path of righteousness, but ending up in the path of judgment, in sin consciousness. They will continue to seek until they find.(Gal.3:17,Heb 13:14, Amos 8:12)

Little Children to Youth

CRISIS: Want to know the Shepherd. Desire more than food and protection – they look for relationship and realize they are of a different nature (sin nature) with their Lord.

STEPPING UP: Revelation of the New Creation, prepared by the revelation of Grace and Righteousness consciousness

Youth (disciples): committed to learn and grow to be like their Master (soul-based)

  • Their rules of life are based on sowing and reaping. They learn to do the word so they can grow. They learn to give so they can receive. They learn to love by denying self.
  • Sent by their Master to do His words. The closer to the Sender, the greater the discernment.
  • Empowered by doing the known and tested Words that sent them and see them fulfilled (John 8:31-32)
  • They deny themselves, pick up their cross so they can hear and see the Lord directly, with no man in the middle.
  • Discern and carry activity in the mid-heaven realms (spiritual battles, intercessions) (Mark 16:17-18)
  • Keep laying down the soul life (psyche) in order to receive spirit-Life (zoe): (Mat.10:37-39)

Follower of the Lord at any cost (Luke 9:23-24)

Youth to Parents

Parents (adult sons): committed to Oneness (spirit-based)

  • Their rules of life are from the Father so they are eternal. When heaven comes to earth, life swallows death, light destroys darkness, love flows normally. (2 Cor.5:17)
  • They love by knowing that they are one with the ones they love. And One with Him, the source of Love. (1 John 4:7-11)
  • Walking in their true Spirit identity in Christ: as He is so are we on this earth (1 John 4:17)
  • They are in control over the situation as they are abiding into the commandments of the Father (John 10:18)
  • Walking in the Spirit awareness of living Kingdom by relationship with the blood of Jesus (John 6:54-56)
  • We were in the Word of God, in the Lamb of God before creation (Ephes. 1)
  • We are sons of God NOW and shall be like Him when He appears (1 John 3:1-2)

Parents to the Son

CRISIS: The individual Sonship is laid down for the Knowing of Love. Experiences with Him are insufficient as His fullness is emptying everything that is of old

STEPPING UP: Revelation of them being One with Christ. Enter total REST.

[Eph 3:19 NKJV] 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

[Eph 4:13 NKJV] 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;

Greater is he

The voice of God

Posted: May 14, 2018 in Uncategorized

Looking for the Person

[Jhn 1:14-15 NKJV] 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ “

The Word has glory to be looked upon. The words are meant to only be heard for the purpose of being witness. We are born of the Word and will not be satisfied with anything less than Him.

Afraid of the voice

[Gen 3:10 NKJV] 10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

Man lost the ability to hear the voice of God because of fear and sin – separation from Him.

[Exo 33:11a NKJV] 11 So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend.

Daniel chapter 10

The highest of the Old Covenant was God speaking through angels audibly to Moses and Joshua and the prophets.

Listening to the Father

[Luk 3:22 NKJV] 22 And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”

[Luk 9:35 NKJV] 35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!”

The Father speaks from heaven.

Purpose: He will always reveal the Son in us and His pleasure with Him.

Listening to the Son

[Jhn 5:25 NKJV] 25 “Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.

[Jhn 10:27 NKJV] 27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

The Son speaks from above principalities and powers: from the  authority of His throne and the Head of the Church. His Voice comes to our souls through the spirit of Grace and also through the Living Kingdom – the seven spirits.

Purpose: to impart His unity with us in authority and relationship with the Living Kingdom.

Listening to the Spirit

[Jhn 6:63 NKJV] 63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and [they] are life.

The ‘flesh’ of the words is the vehicle that carries the Spiritual Life. Who Jesus was on the inside was spoken out through Spirit-made words.

The Spirit speaks from inside us, like living waters flowing through our souls. Deep thoughts, overwhelming knowing thoughts, revealing thoughts.

Purpose: always building up your new creation – son in all that Christ is.

Led by the  Spirit

[Rom 8:14 NKJV] 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Ledago (Gr).

1.to lead by laying hold of, and this way to bring to the point of destination

2.to lead with one’s self, attach to one’s self as an attendant

Surrender to the Spirit

[Isa 50:5 NKJV] 5 The Lord GOD has opened My ear; And I was not rebellious, Nor did I turn away.

[Psa 40:6 NKJV] 6 Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; My ears You have opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.

The words of God

Posted: May 14, 2018 in Uncategorized

The Word and words

[Jhn 1:6-8, 23 NKJV] 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light. … 23 He said: “I [am] ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Make straight the way of the LORD,” ‘ as the prophet Isaiah said.“

When does the Word become words? What is the difference between the Light and the witness of it?

John is nothing without Jesus: however to other men, the knowledge of Him may have come through John. John came first, yet the One that came after Him was BEFORE him. John, as soon as he had accomplished his mission, has passed away, having no continual significance for the Church of God; but Jesus, of whom he had told, and to whom he witnessed, is abiding for ever.

Looking at the Word

[Jhn 1:14-15 NKJV] 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ “

The Word has glory to be looked upon. The words are meant to only be heard. We are born of the Word to become like Him.

[Jhn 6:63 NKJV] 63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and [they] are life.

The ‘flesh’ of the words is the vehicle that carries the Spiritual Life. Each of the words of Jesus were manifested Word. Who He was on the inside was spoken out through words.

The purpose of it is to bring Life to the ones that  hear in a form of a Seed. The Word then abides for ever as it is planted in us.

Shine the Word

[Jhn 1:1-3 NKJV] 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

[Gen 1:3 NKJV] 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

[2Co 4:6 NKJV] 6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

His words are revealing the WORD. Ours are too!

Learn to speak

1 Cor 2:12-14 – But as for us, not the spirit of the world system did we receive but the Spirit who is of God in order that we might come to know the things which by God have been in grace bestowed upon us, 13 which things also we put into words, not in words taught by human philosophy but in words taught by the Spirit, fitly joining together Spirit-revealed truths with Spirit-taught words. 14 But the unregenerate man of the highest intellectual attainments does not grant access to the things of the Spirit of God, for to him they are folly, and he is not able to come to know them because they are investigated in a spiritual realm.

Speak of the Spirit, by Grace. This will allow others to hear the Spiritual truths also by Grace.

Speak a Word

[Mat 8:8 NKJV] 8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.

[Mat 8:13 NKJV] 13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, [so] let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.

Only the right Word at the right time delivers the power assigned to it by the words spoken.
