Accepting the cost of your charge

Accepting The Cost Of Your Charge

There is a lot going on in the earth so much to the point that it seems like mankind has taken control globally, as well as locally, as we are being shaken by the results of his ungodly decisions.

But the Word of God says that there is a way that seemeth right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12. In other words, man’s ways without God are wicked, evil, deceptive, and is designed to draw you into the allurements of its sin.

Although we live in this world around and near the shadows of the manifestations of the choices of ungodly men, we are still taken care of and provided for by our Father which is in Heaven.

That is if we obey the Words of God! For the Word of God has told us and is telling us to “be in this world, but not of the world”.

The Word of God goes on to tell us and be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good, acceptable, and the perfect Will of God. Romans 12:2

And while all this is going on around us in the shadows we are as Disciples of Christ Jesus to continue to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God, which is our reasonable service. Romans 12:1.

Now, this is acceptable to God you and me as an offering, whereas nothing else is.

 

Accepting the COST of your charge

 

Charge is a demand (an amount) as a price from someone for a service rendered or goods supplied.

 

We all say that we have accepted the cost paid by Jesus from the charge of God that was placed upon Him for all mankind. And God called it the “Gift of Salvation” to all mankind.

We all say that we have accepted the cost of what Paul, Peter, John, and all others have paid to manifest the life and life style of a “spiritual being” encased in a human body living in the earth.

Even though we love to tell the stories over and over again about each ones role in fulfilling the plan and purpose of God in earth, but we have no manifestation of what all they did and how it has changed our lives to accept the cost of our charge in the furtherance of Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What is your charge? In other words, what is God’s plan and purpose in you that has been charged to you in earth?

What is its worth to the Kingdom of God and to you?

Is your charge worth the full manifestation of the gift of salvation and its costs applied to your life in earth?

 

            The cost of true salvation has a price! Can you pay it in full as our Lord and Savior did, and all the other patriots? Is your life story being written for the generations to come and even the new earth that has been prepared already by God?

            Or are you still “trying” to make payments, i.e. monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly payments? And at this method of payment plan will you ever “fulfill” the charge of God’s plan and purpose in you for Him in earth?

            Will God have to write your account off as bad debt, a write off, or closed account for failure to pay in full?

 

            Religion with its traditions lets you “try” to make claim on the Divine plan of God without the offering of and acceptance of full cost, which is TOTAL SURRENDERED.

            I shared with you all last week as we ministered; your struggle is in the transformation process. It is not racism and never has been, nor any other matter. But it’s in your transformation!

  • When you hear the Word of God, the Word reacts with a response to cleanse.
  • When you desire to obey the Word of God and do good the Word of God reacts and responds by bearing witness to and with the transformation of you becoming a new creature.
  • When you rebel against the Word of God that you have heard and accepted, the Word of God reacts and responds with a battle. Whereas you now have the Spirit lusting against the flesh and the flesh lusting against the Spirit, because these two are contrary to each other, so that you cannot do the things that you would do. Galatians 5:17. This is that transforming process! You know God knows how to do it!
  • In all of this cleansing process the new creature in you is counting up and accepting the cost of this charge to give up and become the new creature of God’s plan and purpose.
  • What is your price? What is my price? Can you pay it? Are you willing to accept the charge and pay the cost?
  • Here is your cost to be Christ’s example:

St Luke 14:26-33

26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him.

People will mock you and laugh at you and call you crazy when you accept the cost of God’s charge for your life.

30 Saying, this man began to build, and was not able to finish.

            But ignorance don’t allow them to know that you are walking out your completed work in Christ Jesus because you’ve accepted the full cost of your charge.

31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.

            The so-called peaceful protestors protesting for justice as they declared or there will be no peace is like going to war, to battle without counting up the cost.

            And not realizing that the legacy of peace is only given by Christ Jesus. St John 14:27 declares it, Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

 

In accepting the cost of your charge you must leave ALL the old things of your life behind in order to take on the new things of life in Christ Jesus.

  • Discipleship is a charge that comes with a cost. It says pick up your cross, come, and follow me.
  • Membership has no charge or cost.
  • Membership keeps the Will of your comments, suggestions, and opinions on board while the flesh reasons with its lustful desires.
  • Membership does not understand the spiritual need of the spirit man in you.
  • Discipleship is God’s claim.
  • Discipleship accepts the cost of your charge in your salvation.
  • Discipleship understands that division, a separation is necessary to fulfill the cost of God’s plan in you.
  • Discipleship breeds cross bearers, followers and learners of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Discipleship only knows Christ Jesus as its example.

 

Accepting the cost of your charge comes with conditions for perfection that is spiritual maturity.

Our spiritual maturity example is when Jesus told the rich young ruler in St Matthew 19:21, “if thou will be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasures in heaven and come and follow me”.

Following the Gospel of Jesus Christ carries a cost!

 

St Matthew 19:28-29 is your reward for becoming a true follower (believer) of Christ Jesus.

28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.

 

  • You are now one that has become regenerated (to be reformed or reborn spiritually); reborn in Christ; born again of the water and of the Spirit; renewed Soul and Spirit.
  • You are now exalted in Christ by Christ with His Glory resting upon you in the earth realm first to be a witness, a Son of God, a true disciple that have gained through loss to show the manifestations of the Word of God and its examples through you.
  • Accepting the cost of your charge guarantees you everlasting life as your inheritance.
  • Yes there will be many, many challenges, stumbling blocks, hindrances, deceptions, deceit, from your own Will’s choices and the choice of people; but God’s Word is sure when we fully accept the full cost of our charge in His plan in earth.
  • We must be able to manifest what Jesus, Paul, Peter, John, etc. wrote about as well as experienced in their lives to manifest the Gospel of Jesus Christ in them while in the earth.
  • Likewise we must also do the exact same. Their examples must become our manifestations.

 

 

Amen
