Part 2: Sin Killed Jesus. Dividing the soul and spirit

Religion

The Lord knew the road  the knowledge of the tree of good and evil would take Adam down, and that sin would kill him because he had eaten from the tree. He knew the lust that would be in the soul and the flesh of man.God is love.  God is Spirit and can only lead us by His Spirit, His Word, and His love. The Spirit of God does not feed or satisfy the desires of the flesh or the soul unless the soul has been converted back to Him.

 Adam would no longer be led only by God, but by the spirit of darkness.  Adam’s desires would now come through the demands of the flesh and the decision of the soul. The soul, his mind, will, and emotions, would no longer be pure. The wicked one whom Adam had obeyed can now lead him by his flesh as it makes the demands upon the soul. The devil operates in the hidden darkness. He can’t touch our spirit. If we belong to God, we are sealed! We are zip- locked in. We are led by God’s Holy Spirit, and the more of His Word we take in, the more influence our spirit will have on our lives. The spirit works from inside of you to the outside. The soul and body, however, have to be fulfilled by the things on the outside of this fallen sin ruled world. This is where the devil tries to step in and offer you this, that, and another thing. In other words, he offers”nothing for everybody.” The soul operates through taste, touch,see, feel, hear,and smell. And all the lust of the world flows through these streams.Once man drew the knowledge, and the dark power of evil from that tree of good and evil, it is his. Out of that tree comes every temptation that is in the world .The desires of the body and soul are many many times stronger than the spirit. All the spirit needs to be secure and complete in God, is His spirit, His word, His love, His mercy and His grace. Your living soul is not the same as your spirit. The soul and spirit can be divided. If you are born again, your soul will be saved, and it will go with you to heaven, but if you are not saved, it will go to hell with you.

 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.” Heb 4:12, the great divider is The Word. Do you believe It enough to act on it or not?  

I believe these experiences of Jesus with Peter are the best examples I can find of the dividing of the soul and spirit. When Jesus said to Peter, “come,” Peter stood on the water on the word of Jesus, which is spirit. When Peter looked at the storm,  he saw it with the eyes of his soul, and he was filled with fear; standing on spirit, but looking with the soul at the same time. The spirit and soul were divided. He had been standing on the faith of Jesus. If Jesus had said to Peter, I have the storm covered; he would have walked right through the storm. Peter had not been converted at this time. “Jesus said,  when you are converted strengthen you’re the brethren.” Peter did not receive the spirit until Jesus breathed on him. Therefore, the  spirit was not in him. He could only see through his soul. When Peter cried out for Jesus to save him, Jesus said, “oh you of little faith, wherefore did youdoubt.”Mt.14:31 the soul can never believe for more than it can see.

Although Jesus was God made flesh, the Son of Man, Christ Jesus, was 100% man. When He was on the cross, His spirit said Father into your hands I commend my spirit. His suffering soul, on the cross,cried out MY GOD! My God! Why have you forsaken me? We must as children of God have a perfectunderstanding of sin; to hate it as we should and to move others away from it. Today sin is toocommonplace,even within the church.

When Jesus was being tried , This good man, Peter who had spent over three years with Jesus,denied Him.  This perfectly taught man said three times, I don’t know the man. So the best, of the best of men, without the spirit in him, is nothing but a liar. His life is a lie.  No liar will ever enter the gates of heaven. Rev 21:8”…. all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.” The soul will never value anyone or anything above itself, and it’s will to care for itself. Much more to come on sin, share with everybody, share with your pastor. The Lord has a cry in his heart for those trapped in sin, and not getting help. Do you have  friends and family that you need to be fighting for, praying for, and talking to?

Visit from the Lord about Sin

Religion

Revelation of Sin

I want to share with you a visit I had with the Lord. The Lord talked to me about the great depth of sin. I want to make it clear this is a revelation from God and not from man.  I also had an angel  to visit me.  I was taken to heaven and received more revelation of sin.  I also had an open vision .I got a quick view of the last day on earth for the sinner.  I may have seen some of your family or loved ones caught out in darkness. Unless they get right with the Lord before they leave this world or the last trumpet sounds; it will be too late.

 I will be sharing all of this with you.

 In my own home, I watched the one that the Apostle Paul calls “the god of this world, the ruler of the darkness of evil” take over a person from the First Baptist Church in Maryland and change their face, even the color of their eyes. Their language changed before my very eyes. The evil one spoke to me and said, “ I say, you just stand accused.” For sure, I met the accuser of the brethren spoken of in Rev.12:10 “for the accuser of the brethren is now cast down.” Satan picked up this kind of authority over mankind when Adam ate from the forbidden tree.  I had two more personal visits from the evil one at that time, but I will only be sharing the first one with you in this message.  If you know the Lord, you need to hear this. It will make you a better minister and or witness.  I will be breaking this up into more than one teaching.  I don’t want you to miss any of it since it has been given to me by the Lord for you.

One night while approaching the foot of my bed, the Lord spoke to me in an audible voice. It was very loud and very clear! In fact, it was so loud and clear that this thought actually crossed my mind,” I hope He doesn’t wake my wife.” I feared God, but I also feared her. However, He had put her into a deep sleep. I knew that she could not stand my telling her again I was hearing from God. She was already reporting me to the pastor.  I was sure it was an audible voice, because of my fear of her waking up. I guess I feared her seeing me standing at the foot of the bed talking out loud to the Lord. You might be thinking, Bob, why would you be talking out loud to the Lord? Because that was the way God was talking to me. This was a two-way conversation with the Lord, and I answered Him just like I heard his voice.

 The Lord asked me this question,” What killed Jesus”? I said He was crucified. The Lord said, “Yes, but what killed Him”? And I said He was hung on a cross and had nails driven thru His hands and feet. The Lord said,” Not a bone in His body was broken. That did not kill Him.” By this time, I was panic-stricken, and I realized that I was talking to the Almighty God and I didn’t have an answer. I had heard that the Jews killed Him, that the Romans killed Him and the pastor had recently preached a message that He died of a broken heart. So I said, “Lord He bled to death” And the Lord said, “He didn’t bleed to death when the spear was stuck in His side. Blood and water gushed out, so that didn’t kill Him”. I said, Lord, I don’t know.
The Lord then said to me ,“Sin.” Then He repeated the word  again, and said, “Sin, Sin killed Jesus.”

 I had little, to no understanding of what He was trying to teach me. I remember trying to sleep with these words running through my head all night long: sin killed Jesus, sin killed Jesus. All the next day, and for days I kept trying to understand it all. There was no need to talk with the pastor. By now, he was trying to get me to see a Christian COUNSELOR about my claiming to hear from God.  He had been serving the Lord twenty years and had worked for Billy Graham.  I had just gotten saved. By the same token, I also knew by now that of all the things that were important to God for me to know and understand, SIN WAS IT And that sin killed Jesus.

  My knowledge of the Lord at that time, well it was little to nothing somehow I just never got involved in church or religion in any way I remember my wife talking about God and about Jesus, and I said to her I know about God, but I don’t know anything about Jesus, and she set me down and explained Jesus to me.  I was just starting to go to the First Baptist church.  I had never been to church with my parents. We just didn’t go to church. My first time in church with them was when I was forty-one years old. It was at my oldest brother Bill’s funeral . I was a Christian then. In fact, I prayed the sinner’s prayer with my Dad and Mom before they left this world to make sure they were in.

  By now I am seeking God day and night, and searching the scriptures continuously for answers as well as talking to anybody that knew the Lord, and that would listen to me.  This question from the Lord would shape my life as well as my ministry forever. I notice everything I do in ministry revolves around sin. Why and how did sin kill Jesus? I have spent much time pondering The Lord’s visit with me that night.

 When God breathed His breath, His spirit into Adam, he became a living soul  [ or a soul that lives by God’s breath, God’s Spirit]

 ” And “so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul.” 1cor15:45. The Lord told Adam not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil for the day he ate he would surely die. Adam lived  930 years, but the Spirit of God that led Adam  was now dead to Him    Adam is now of the world. The wicked one would now have access to his life.”  The living soul which is your mind, will, and emotions would no longer be spiritual, pure, and holy but would now have a death sentence. Adam sinned when he disobeyed God .“The soul that sins, it shall die.” Ezek18:4b.  ” For the wages of sin is death.” Rom6:23 “He who knew no sin was made to be sin” 2cor5:21 [ He was made to be sin, so he could be killed to pay the wage that you owed. ”Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; he hath put Him to grief.” Isaiah 53:10    [ Father God make the soul of His precious Son an offering for our sins ]  Oh! how He suffered!

RIGHTEOUSNESS

Religion

Are You a Righteous Person?

1Cor1:9 “God is faithful, through whom ye were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” Do you think the Father would call us into fellowship with His Son if we were not righteous? You can, and should be righteous.  Righteousness means having the ability to stand in the presence of Father God without the sense of guilt or condemnation. Think of receiving eternal life, the nature of God Almighty. You come into His family and partake of His Divine Nature.  You are free from the fear of Satan and can stand in his presence without any sense of inferiority. Satan cannot pierce through the armor of righteousness.

 Eph 6:14” Stand, therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness.” His righteousness will become a wall against the enemy when you learn to wear it. Put it on.  Make it happen. The very next verse tells you that you will not make it to” happy land” if you fail the righteousness test.

1st Cor. 6:9 says, “Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Listen to me! Don’t be deceived!

A righteous person is one who is living out his life through the Son of God and has walked out of his old lifestyle into the new Kingdom of God. He has changed worlds. My friend, you get into the new kingdom by being washed in the blood of the Lamb, Christ Jesus. He alone is righteous and the maker of your righteousness. Where does your family stand?

You might be thinking,” Bob, no one can be that righteous.” O yes, you can because of a loving, kind, and good Father. Our Father God draws you to His preciousSon, Christ Jesus, who washes you in His own blood: The blood that makes you whiter than snow. All you need to do, my friend, is to believe it, step into it and thenstep out and live it.

Listen, the desire to get rid of sin consciousness has given birth to all the religions of the world, but Satan and the sin problem are still here. Remember now sin makes cowards of men. Sin consciousness holds us in bondage.  But God has made provision for making a new you. He has planned to impart His nature to you, taking out the old sin nature and replacing it with His Godly nature.

Rom 6:23 says, “The wages of sin is death.” Sin has to be abolished in your life by the Lord Jesus so you might be made the righteousness of God, in Him. My friend, your sin is dead unto the Lord. Look at the price paid for you. It makes you feel like you truly are somebody, doesn’t it?

1Pet 3:18 “For Christ has once suffered for sin, the Just for the unjust.(  or the Righteous for the unrighteous ) that He might bring us to God, being put to death (killed) in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.” He covered you.  He made the new you.

1Pet. 2:24 “Who His own self-bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness.”  Look, if you have not come to Jesus with your sins, then hell will be your final home!  Listen, my friend, repent today.  Can you see your sins in his body hanging on a bloody tree?  It’s time to walk away from all sin .2Cor.5:21.”For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.

 2 Cor5:17”Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new.” This new person has never lived before He is now a new, righteous creature!  You’re a brand new self. There is nothing in the book against you; it is just as if you had never sinned.

  Rom8:1”There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” You are now made right, put right.

The sense of unworthiness destroys faith and robs us of our peace of mind. Only Jesus can replace unworthiness. Are you washed in the blood?  Have you tasted his wonderful love?  Listen, love is our sin cover.

 Heb 9:26 “Now once at the end of the age has He been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.”  In the garden, Adam had perfect fellowship with God before the devil deceived him.  Now that lost righteousness has been restored to us, the believer, through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. He broke sin’spower for the believer.

Living a righteous life unto the Lord brings peace. It brings rest. It brings joy, and better health. Living righteously gives you a sense of well-being. It brings blessings and prosperity to every area of your life through the presence of the Holy Spirit that is dwelling in you.

. The righteousness of Christ Jesus is to and for all men who will believe. Never again should you see yourself as “a poor sinner”, if you are born again. Don’t look atyourself as a failure and sin- ruled. Why not? Because the Father Himself planned the redemption and brought it about through His precious Son, Christ Jesus. He has set His seal upon the redemptive work of Jesus making you, the believer, righteous.

John 16:33 Jesus said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Make sure you are all the way out of the world, and into His kingdom, where He can cover you.

Matt28:18 And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, “All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.”If Jesus has all power on the earth, then the devil has no power except what he steals from you, or you let him take away. Speak to the devil with authority and, you can take out of his mouth what he has gobbled up from you.

1Pet5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour.” That is you, and that is true. The devil hates God’s  righteous sons and daughters. He wants to keep you living on Wrong Street. If the devil can make you feel unrighteous, then he can influence your thinking which will affect your decisions. Don’t let the attacks get to you, Put up a good fight remember;

David didn’t make David famous, Goliath did..

The Jimmy Story

Religion

The Jimmy Story

 Are you hurting, or concerned over a loved one?  Are you willing to love the Lord and trust Him with all your heart?  If you Love the Lord, and trust enough to turn that loved one or any issue in your life over to Him;  He will go to work for you. If it is a loved one, He will give them every opportunity to get right with Him. If you care, God cares. First of all, He cares about you and what you are going through. He is not willing that anyone should ever perish, but that they should be loved and free from sin and prosper in all their ways. The Lord gave me an understanding of this through a young man I met, named Jimmy; He worked for a man in Stuart, Fl. Jeff bought and sold cars. He would buy at the auction in Ft. Lauderdale and sale up and down the coast to dealers. I ask him if he would buy a specific car for me, for a  fee, and he said he would. He called me and said he had purchased my car, but I would need to go with him the next day to the auction to pick it up. When he picked me up, he had Jimmy with him and he was going along to pick up another car. It turned out to be a long day. He made several stops doing business deals. Jimmy and I would stay outside, and I would talk to him about the Lord Jesus. Jimmy was polite and quiet, but he would never answer me. He had a Nazis swastika tattooed on his neck which did not seem to fit his “nice guy “image.  I knew by his boss’s name that he was working for a Jew. This seemed strange to me.I seemed to be obsessed with getting Jimmy saved. I was on him all day. Late in the afternoon, I thought I was running out of time, and I said, “Jimmy, before you die, make sure you cry out, Jesus save me.” Then I said,” do you hear me, Jimmy? Remember Jimmy as you are dying, cry out, “Jesus save me.” I said it several times. He looked at me, and I am sure he thought, this old man is crazy. And I remember saying to myself, Bob, what is wrong with you? This young man is only 21 years old you have got to lighten up. This guy thinks you are a nut, and I was ready to agree with him

Someone else purchased the car that was for me, so I rode back with Jeff.  Jimmy drove another vehicle back. I talked to Jeff about Jesus.  He said his dad was a Jew, but his mother was a Catholic, and he knew about Jesus, and he was going to do better.  When we got to Jeff’s place, he had one car there with 10,000 miles on it. The car was 3 or 4 years old, but looked like new.  I made the deal. He said he would have Jimmy detail it, and I could pick it up tomorrow. The next afternoon, he had not called, so I called him . He said, “Jimmy died.” I said, what do you mean Jimmy died! The boy was only 21, and in perfect health. He said Jimmy’s mother had called and told him that he came in around eleven last night and talked a while then went to bed. The next morning she went in to wake him, and he was dead.  I told Jeff that I spoke to him about the Lord, and he said, he told me you did after you left. This is a mystery. I have no clue why Jimmy had to die, but this I know, Jimmy could not have died without me, or someone like me, that would tell him about Jesus. The Lord ordered that whole day on behalf of Jimmy. Some little Mother, Dad, or Granny had lit the fire of God over Jimmy’s life. I gave him the plan of salvation every way I knew how , and he never responded to me, but God purged Jimmy in his dying breath. What a Wonderful, Magnificent, Awesome, Loving Father and God we have. If you have a loved one out there and you have done all you know to do , just remember Father God is a family man. He doesn’t want you in heaven and your family member in hell, or suffering. Keep crying out, keep praying, start speaking with the authority that God has given you. God will consume their problem and cleanse them just for you, My friend. The word in your mouth can be someone else’s eternity. Pray, speak. Don’t forget Num23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie,” you can, above all, trust what he has said.

Understanding the Fire Power of God 

Religion

Understanding the Fire Power of God

 The scripture says in Heb.12:29 that our God is a consuming fire. Over the years I have found it very difficult to understand the firepower of God.  How do we get the fire and how do we use it in our lives and ministry? Jesus is the Baptizer of the Holy Spirit and fire. I see many flowing in the Holy Spirit, but I  find it hard to see the fire. John the Baptist said Jesus would baptize us with fire as well as the Spirit. That’s two things. It should be a big deal. Just how do we use this fire of God that we are baptized with? I am not sure we know how this fire baptism works.

 Luke 3:16, John answered, saying unto them all,” I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose. He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire.” I say, if we do not see the fire, we probably don’t know how to use it. I’m not sure that I understand the full meaning of the fire baptism by the Lord Jesus, but I will try to share what the Lord has shown me.

Several years ago as I lay down on my bed, I had a dream or a prophetic visitation. I was taken to this large field.It was longer than a football field but resembled a farm. I was leading a riding horse that was saddled up.  I was carrying a bouquet of flowers in my right hand and leading the horse with my left. I came up to this village, and I saw several white frame houses in a semi-circle or half circle. Every home I saw was precisely alike: white and very clean and orderly. The yards were spotless. To the left and at the rear of each house was a pile of debris about two feet high. It looked like trimmings from a small orchard. In front of each pile stood a man with a torch in his hand with no fire. Every man was blocked. They had gone as far as possible in their own power. The pile of debris represented the problems in their life that would not go away, and yet they had pushed as hard as they could. They could not move the debris or get rid of it. The debris represents problems like lust, pornography, alcohol, drugs, procrastination, sickness and above all out of control children. Anything that was eating away at them. I came to this angel on my right hand who looked like a man, and I asked him,“What are all these men doing just standing here with these torches in their hands?”The angel said, “The Holy Ghost said when you light the fire, the rats and things will come running out, and he can destroy them.” Rats and thing are demons and strongholds that stand in your way- Anything that nibbles away at your life and hinders you or robs you of joy, peace, rest, prosperity, or the quality of life that you should be living as a child of God. [Notice, you have to light the fire before the Holy Ghost moves against the enemy.]  I turned and said, “Light them!”  When I spoke, each man lit his brush pile, and the fire fell from heaven and licked up all the debris. It did not leave so much as a matchstick! Then every man was free to move forward.The flames rose up and blanketed the whole sky before me.  The flames formed into a ball of fire as large as a truck. The wind shifted, and the Spirit of God moved. The ball of fire came to me and consumed the flowers I was carrying and then consumed me. I was absorbed into the ball of fire and was baptized in it.  I have struggled with the Lord for years for a proper understanding of all of this. I now know it was to be understood little by little as I ministered and matured along the way.The men with the torches, but no fire, represented the children of the kingdom who were truly living for Christ Jesus. The clean yard and spotless white houses described the condition of the believer’s life. They had tried their very best to live for the Lord and to help those they loved. The horse represented my ministry which was to come. I was not in the saddle because I was not quite ready My flowers which were consumed, were issues in my life: my brush pile which the Lord had to take away. God is a consuming fire. He purges away what we cannot get rid of ourselves.  We need a better understanding of how to use the firepower of God. I think it is like everything else, the Word makes it work, or it doesn’t work. My words were made real when I used them, and so will yours be when you speak. I would think they could have lit the fire with better understanding.

 Jer. 23:29 “Is not my word like as a fire? Saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” Evidently, the fire is released through the spoken word of God. I did what the angel told the Holy Ghost I was to do; I said light them. I believe the people, who are baptized with fire, are the ones with the authority of God’s word in their mouth. His Word is like a fire when spoken with power and like a hammer that breaks down anything in the way. I kept thinking this Word was for me, but how many people could I help?  This Word to light the fire of God is for all that will speak the Word with faith, boldness, and authority. The fire comes when one gets hold of God and refuses to let go. Get to know and to understand the baptism of fire when the fire was lit every man walked free from every hindrance.–

Fatherhood

Religion

   “Fatherhood”

 One day while just talking to the Lord about the issues of life, I realized that I am an old man, and yet I am being fathered. We have a heavenly Father.   I have someone who will hear all of my troubles, and understand all of my fears; someone who knows and cares about me and is willing to help me. What comfort! What a blessing! What a wonderful, awesome Father is our God!  Father God has a kingdom. The Bible calls it the Kingdom of God. if you are in It, He will be a real Father to you.

  If you believe in His precious son, the Lord Jesus, then you can walk right into the Father’s heart, and right into the Father’s kingdom where He can take care of you. Father God loves you. Ask, in the name of the Lord Jesus, and He will open the door of His heart for you.

1John 5:19 KJV “ And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness.” (Amplified Bible “

we know [positively] that we are of God, and the whole world [around us] is under the power of the evil one.” )

So the Devil has a kingdom also. Listen up now, if you are in his kingdom you are also being fathered by the devil and are being slowly lured into a deep, dark, burning hell. If you don’t know the Lord Jesus, you better start sleeping with one eye open.

Some years ago, after I was saved, I sought the Lord day and night without ceasing; for ten years. One day I got into my prayer closet and spent the day just crying out to God. That night when I put one foot in the shower, the Lord spoke to me in a very clear, loud, audible voice. He said to me, “THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD.”  I don’t want you to hear what the Lord said to me because it will mean little or nothing to you, but I want you to hear what He is saying to you. I am speaking His words to you on His behalf. He told me His will. I have the word of God for you. This is a quote from the Spirit of God- “This is the will of God.” Then He just let me stand there, for what seemed like forever, with hot water splashing on my leg. I stood at attention. I was afraid to move even to adjust the water. Then He spoke these words to me, “Believe on Him whom he has sent.” I was a little taken back. I thought, I already believe. I wanted to hear Bob you’re doing good, or you’re my man or something. But over the years, I have learned that the kingdom of God is built on the words, the Body, and the precious blood of his Son, Christ Jesus. The Kingdom of God flows and operates through Him. Jesus was sent to bring us back to the Father and to set us apart by transforming and translating us into the Father’s Kingdom where he can provide and take care of us. Here is my confirmation.

John 6:38-39 Jesus said, “ For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.”

“And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing but should raise it up again at the last day.” I am not talking here whether you can or cannot lose salvation, but about a wonderful heavenly Father who wants you, and who has given a charge to his wonderful Son, Christ Jesus to secure you and keep you until the day, He raises you up.

Matt.17:5  “This is my beloved Son in whom I a well pleased; hear ye Him.” If you listen to all the words of Jesus, He will be a security blanket unto you.  He is the perfect will of the father for you. Jesus knowing he would be leaving the earth has sought the Father for our direction, comfort, and security forever.

John 14:16-17, Jesus said, ” I will pray the [Father], and He shall give you another Comforter that He may abide with you forever.”  “Even the Spirit of truth whom the [world] cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”  While you are waiting for the return of Jesus for you, the Holy Spirit has you covered.

John14:26-27 ”But the Comforter which is the Holy Ghost, whom the [Father] will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” “ Peace I leave with you ,My peace I give unto you, not as the [world] gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” The Holy Spirit will remind you of the things Jesus has said and wants you to stand on to help carry you through.

John16:13 “Howbeit when He, the spirit of truth, comes He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come.” He will speak and will be the voice of Jesus to you. “Listen”

Our wonderful Father has our future mapped out forever. John14:1-3, this next event is only for kingdom people like you.

Jesus said” Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid, you believe in God believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” You can’t even die!

John 11:26 Jesus said, “And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?” You, my friend, are of the God kind. You are sealed. You are zip locked in. When your body stops, you just step right out into the presence of the angels of the Lord, you never skip a beat. Spirit can’t die. I have been in the presence of one who passed over, and I heard them say, “they are here.” The angels carry you right into glory. Just remember, to believe on Him whom He has sent.”

Ezek 18:4” The soul that sins it shall die” The unrepentant sinner, without the Spirit of God, does not have this hope.

2Cor5:21, Paul said,” For he hath made him to be sin for us who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”  Your father loves you, and you are made right, put right and kept right. You’re everything He ever wanted. Think about this; the thing purchased always has more value than the price paid in the eyes of the purchaser.

Rev 4:11{ KJV} “Thou art worthy, O Lord to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure, they are and were created.”

You are the best that Father God could do. He created you for himself, for His pleasure, just like He wanted you! [so don,t mess it up] If He could have done better, He would have. Remember, you are of the God kind, you are like your Father.

THE POWER OF THE WORD

Religion

  The power of God’s word

I want to give you a word of encouragement today. Perhaps some of you are going through fiery trials even now.  Stand firm, keep trusting the Lord.

I have noticed most people I know who truly live the Christian life, and not just go to church, but have the word of God working in their lives, seem to have a noticeable peace and rest about them. I believe, and I share this from experience, that rest may well be the highest order of the blessings of God. The blessed people seem always to know in depth the word of God.  I concluded that the word of God must have strength, power, and wisdom in it.  If it were not of great value, we would not pursue it.

Exodus 33:13-14  Moses said to God, “ Now, therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, show me now thy way, that I may know you, that I may find grace in thy sight, and consider that this nation is your people.” I am thinking here, did anyone ever know God like you did Moses? The guy is standing in miracles up to his knees. He had just led millions of people out of Egypt after practically destroying the country by the hand of God. Now he is saying, “I don’t really know you.”

Moses was God’s man of the month. God’s man of the hour, but he did not feel like he truly knew God.

 And God said, “My presence shall go with thee, and I will give you rest.”What a promise Father God made to Moses: I will be present with you, and you will have rest. My friend rest comes from believing the promises of God. The greatest promise God could make to Moses was to give him rest.

Listen to this wonderful promise from the Lord Jesus to us.

John14:16-18 “ And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive because it sees him not, neither knows him: but ye know him; for He dwells with you, and shall be in you.

 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” His spirit will always go with you, and He, The Holy Spirit, will give rest to you.

Ps119:105  The Psalmist  said, “ The word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” God’s word takes the load off and shows you the next step I will take that every time.

The word of God is Spirit, and it is life. I will take that kind of life. Come and let it light up your life.

John10:27,” My sheep hear My voice.” His word, as well as his Spirit, is His voice.

The Word will protect you. It will be your rear guard.

The Psalmist said, “Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against you.”  The word will keep you clean, and pure.

The word is what Father God desires to say to all mankind.  He knows everything and owns everything. It is His world. He inspired all the words of the Bible. It is His story.

 Jer.15:16 ( Don’t forget what Jeremiah said)”Thy words were found, and I did eat them, and the word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart.” Father God responds and gives rest to His children who know his word and is secure in Him.

2: Peter1:3 the word says he has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness; through the knowledge of Him, that has called us to glory and virtue.  We get His knowledge by hearing what He has to say. It is a great thing to be able to apply His knowledge to your situation. I am trying to tell you God wants to talk to you through His word today.

The entrance of the Word brings light. Has it entered you, my friend? Is your path lit up? It should be.

How are things, how is your life? Listen as I tell you about God’s plan and see if it is working well for you. And if not, you are probably missing out on what He is saying.

If the Word has priority in your life, it will shine a light on your path. Your thinking will change for the better, and you will make better decisions and better choices in life. That will help you to prosper in every area of your life.

The Word will show your feet where to step, and it will keep you on the right path. Even a flashlight can be king in a dark room.

Have you thought of the Word as power for life? It can be. It powers my life. The Lord quickened the Word to me years ago, and I have ordered my life by it. God’s Word is the greatest treasure and the greatest value of my life. It has delivered everything that it’s promised.

Psalms12:6,” the words of the Lord are pure words as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times.” That’s big.

Think about the power of the Word. When your heart is full of the Words of God, it will overcome your old sorry, sinful life.

If you have a sin problem, the infilling of the Word in your heart will push it away. It leaves very little room for sin.

Ps119:89, “Forever, O Lord thy word is settled in heaven”. Let’s talk about this. It is a rope you can hang on to, an anchor that will secure you and a stabilizer that will keep you in balance.

Isaiah 40:8, “The word of our God shall stand forever.”

Matt 24:35 Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my word shall never pass away.”Nothing else has this kind of shelf life..

John 14:24 “Jesus said, and the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s which sent me.” We could say, all of the heavens back His Word.  I heard a statement from a Rabbi that goes something like this, “the words of men that represent God today have overpowered and overshadowed the Word of God.” Men are starving us out. There is a true famine of the true Word of God.

John 4:24 Jesus said, God is a spirit.” Jesus said My Word is a Spirit, and it is Life, so the Life of God flows out of the Word of God to us.  Paul called him The Invisible God in Col 1:15

God is a Spirit, so His Spirit, His Word must touch our spirit and influence our flesh to work.  If you pick up His Words and run with them, you will score every time.

John 17:7Jesus said,” Father I have given them the words that you gave me. I finished the work that you gave me to do”. Think about that. Jesus gave you the Words of Life, for your life.

Vision of the Strait Gate

Religion

Vision- Strait Gate

Recently,
while just getting up from my couch, in the middle of the afternoon, I had
an open vision of the Lord Jesus. I did not see a full face of Him, but I
did see the whole person. I walked up behind him.  He was standing inside
of a fenced yard with his left hand on the gate as if he were pulling it
toward himself. It looked to be about 15- 20% closed. Over his head were
two words written in very large, bold letters” *STRAIT GATE”*Jesus was
looking straight ahead as if with great concern. I believe, by the way he
was looking out that gate, he was looking for the people who are yet to
come into the kingdom. Even though I could not see his face, I sensed his
feelings.* Jesus did not say a word to me, but I believe he was saying,”
Time is winding down Bob, Now is the time to move in the day of my power.
Work while you have the light; while the door is still open and the fields
are white already for harvest.” * I can’t say for sure, the straight gate
is beginning to close, but I can say for sure that day is coming.

Luke 13:24 Jesus said,” Strive to enter in at the strait gate; for many, I
say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” I ask you, my
friend, do you still spend time thinking about the straight and narrow way
that leads to the strait gate? Are you striving for it? I hope you are
showing your family and friends how to get on the path that leads to the
strait gate. Help them find it! Will you? No matter what we are doing in
the body of Christ, our priority should be telling others about Jesus who
loved us and died for us.

Luke 19:10 Jesus said,” For the Son of man is come to seek and to save
that which was lost.”When the Lord visits us with visions, I assure you it
is for a good reason. Jesus wants to make a statement and I feel like this
is it; He loves all people, but they will never be his unless they come
through that straight gate that leads to him. You only get there by being
born again

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said, unto Nicodemus,” Verily! Verily! I say
unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Just as Jesus told Nicodemus you must be born again I ask you, my friend,
will you speak for Jesus, Will you tell others they must be born again? If
nobody speaks, then nobody hears.

2nd Peter3:9,” The Lord is not slack concerning his promise as some men
count slackness but is longsuffering to us-ward not willing that any should
perish, but that all should come to repentance.”Bring everyone who will
listen to you in while the gate is still open. Jesus said,” come unto me
all you that are weary and I will give you rest.”When I saw Jesus he was
wearing a purple robe; I believe he was wearing purple for a reason. He was
treated and tried as a common criminal dressed in purple before he was
crucified. Purple still speaks of his suffering, bleeding, and dying for us
The color purple is mentioned 48 times in the Bible.Some of the things it
stands for are royalty, majesty and high officials (Judge.) It is true that
judgment is coming someday, but for now, his loving hand of grace and mercy
is extended to as many as you will bring to him.

1Peter3:18,” For Christ, also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the
unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but
quickened by the Spirit.”  If Jesus suffered and died to bring you to God,
he also suffered and died for your neighbor.

Jn 10:9 “Jesus said I am the door: by me, if *any man* enters in, he shall
be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” “I also believe he
would say to some of us, that we have taken our eyes off of the narrow path
that leads to the strait gate and that we are traveling over the by-pass
road because it is the quicker and easier way.  Be careful.The off-ramp
will drop you off in the wrong place. If you see fire and hear weeping and
gnashing of teeth, you will know you took the wrong exit.

Jesus said,” Fear not, little flock it is the Father’s good pleasure to
give you the kingdom.” The Kingdom belongs to you, but you can show the
door to someone else, maybe your own family. You, my friend, are priceless
in the Father’s eyes. He created you and is not about to leave you in a
dark place without giving you and your family a way out, even at the price
of the blood of His Son.

You have heard the old saying, “you are one in a million.” That is not
true. You, my friend, are one in 7 billion; yet our Father knows you well
enough to know every hair on your head.  And if that weren’t good enough;
not one person in the world has your fingerprints. Not one other person has
your DNA. You have a special place in the Lord, and his Kingdom. If my
friend, you are not sure of your place in the Lord, and you want in just
say Dear Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and wash my sins away. I
will pray for you just e-mail me with; I did it,  I want in,  I prayed, or
yes.
