Imitation of Life

Imitation of Life

This outward appearance is not a reflection of Kingdom Life and Lifestyle. What appears is not what really is. Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2021 All Rights Reserved

 

  • Imitation is the action of using someone or something as a model; an act of imitating a person’s speech or mannerisms; a thing intended to simulate or copy something else.
  • We are living in a time now where the Kingdom of God is being made a mockery.

 

Galatians 6:7-8

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

 

  • Don’t allow what you see and how the believers are acting and pretending to love the Spirit of God and keep all His Commandments deceive, delude, and mislead you in believing that this behavior is spiritual and is acceptable to God.
  • Jesus said in St John 14:15-16 if you love Me you will keep My Commandments. And He will pray to the Father, and the Father will give you another Comforter that may abide with you forever.
  • The Comforter is the Holy Ghost! He will lead, guide, instruct, and bring all things back to your remembrance what the Lord God has told you.
  • Loving God and His Way is the key to being filled with the HOLY GHOST.
  • God will not allow Himself to be sneered at, scorned, disdained by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.

 

  • Mockery means an absurd misrepresentation or imitation of something; make something seem foolish or absurd.
  • Mock is to tease someone or make someone the object of scorn, or to mimic or imitate someone to get laughs or to insult the person.
  • For example, tradition and religion tries to point out a new way, a better way to serve the Spirit of God instead of the way God has written His forever settled Word.
  • Whereas tradition and religion says that the Word of God and His Spirit is not enough or equipped to heal and deliver a person(s) with abuse, mental illnesses, or mental disorders. God gave us doctors to heal us; professionals to treat our mental illnesses and disorders.
  • The Word of God says in James 5:13-16

13 Is any among you afflicted? (Ill-treated, suffering evil) Let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing psalms,

14 Is any sick (affected by physical or mental illnesses) among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he hath committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

16 Confess (admit or state that you have committed a crime or act, or is at fault in some way) your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed (and restored to a spiritual tone of mind and heart). The effectual (fruitful, effective, successful in producing a desired or intended result) fervent (passionate intensity) prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

  • We must fight the good fight of faith! We must learn to fight the good fight of faith!
  • STOP warring in warfare with NO VICTORY!
  • To fight the good fight of faith means to maintain a godly character even in and under your forbidding and hostile situations and circumstances.
  • We must learn to reject error and to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.
  • To fight the good fight of faith means to abide in the faith of Christ the vine and the Word that nourishes the branch regardless of how you feel, think, or understand, St John 15:4-5.

 

1 Timothy 6:11-12 is a warning to ministers, leaders, called out ones

11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou are also called and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

 

  • God does not see as man sees. He looks at the heart!
  • Man looks at the outward appearance as an outward righteousness and inward there is still corruption.
  • The doctrine of tradition and religion is not good and is full of evil examples of life and lifestyle in Christ and Kingdom living.

 

1 Samuel 16:7 Samuel was sent to Bethlehem by God to search for David to anoint him as king.

7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

 

St Matthew 23:27 Jesus spoke contrasting outward righteousness and inward corruption by using the beauty of a whited sepulcher outside, but within it is full of dead men bones and dead history. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

 

  • When everyone is saying the same thing that everyone else is saying that can only be substantiated by feelings, guts, intuition, education, likes and dislikes; rehearsed talk, watching others, imitating others, gossip, hearsay, having a form of godliness, with a familiar spirit, etc. is just common talk.
  • Our outward appearance is deceiving many.
  • The Word of God teaches us in Spirit and in Truth according to the Word how to dress, how to conduct ourselves in behavior, communication, and in mannerism.
  • The flesh has and is fooling many believers that say they are in Christ.
  • Our outward appearance is not evidence or proof of a life and lifestyle of citizenship in the Kingdom of God when all it does is “highlight” you.
  • Common talk and its mannerism is an imitation and is not spiritual, neither does it exemplify righteousness, sanctification, and holiness.
  • Imitations of life began in the Garden with Adam and Evil when the serpent beguiled and seduced Eve with his spirit against God, because he wanted to be God and be worshipped.
  • Satan even today distracts us from the “true fight” and has us fighting other fights, such as “I’m greater than you, I’m more anointed than you”, “and I’m certified to do better than you because I have a degree in theology and in the divinity of man”.
  • I have my degree, a letter where the knowledge I have has puffed up and has no love.

 

2 Corinthians 3:5-6

            5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

            6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit; for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

 

  • Believers are known to start and stop what they say God told them but never completing it if no one is showing any interest in what I say God has told me to do.
  • Believers are divided against one another leaving us to compete with one another, fight at one another as to who is right and who is wrong; bickering and arguing, backbiting at each other instead of doing what God has really told them to do.
  • What part God gave you, He also gave the other part to another and another part to another, to make a whole.
  • But because we are self-centered and don’t have wisdom and spiritual discernment as required we tend to think that everyone or someone is after your anointing.
  • Satan whips the believer into being shallow, compromising, and deceitful because their faith is in fate.
  • Fate is the development of events beyond a person’s control, regarded as determined by a supernatural power.

 

Proverbs 19:21 Many plans are in a man’s mind, but it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand.

 

  • Faith is a substance! Substance is a particular kind of matter with uniform (remaining the same in all cases and at all times; unchanging in form or character) properties.
  • Christ Jesus the very image of God’s substance; having the real nature of God made manifest in contrast to the outward manifestation of the imitations of man’s demonstration of a Kingdom life and lifestyle in Christ.
  • Jesus the Christ speaks of the Divine essence of God’s existence and expression in the revelation of His Son.
  • God through His Son Jesus becomes to us that giving substance that confirms the things we hope for, being the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of the reality perceived as the real facts of what is not and cannot be revealed to our senses.
  • This imitation of life won’t lead you to God and His Kingdom but it will lead you to the enemy of God.
  • This imitation of life will keep you in a “trance” believing that you are in the Will of God, His Kingdom, and are living the life required for a Kingdom citizen from an outward appearance.
  • STOP letting your good be evil spoken of because of your communications and the people that you dwell with.
  • The Kingdom of God is as God is Spirit!

 

Romans 14:17-18

            17 For the Kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

            18 For he that is these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men.

 

  • The real Kingdom of God is not a matter of you getting the food and drink that you like but is set according to the Will of the King.
  • If and when we serve Christ in this way it is acceptable and pleasing to God and is approved by men (God gives you favor with man), not vice versa approved by men and pushed off on God for Him to take it whether He approves, accepts, and is pleased with it or not.
  • We are so traumatized and emotionalized by our feelings then we are to just believe, trust, hope, and have confidence in the Spirit of the Word of God.
  • Feelings do not operate in the realm of faith.

 

Are there any questions or comments?

 

Amen

Soul Winning

Soul Winning

There is a difference between inviting someone to Church and inviting a soul to meet and accept Jesus Christ. Apostle Tracey Robinson 2021 All Rights Reserved

 

  • Now that we are teaching and preaching the Word to get the Word in Spirit and in Truth, let’s win some souls.
  • Now that we know and are learning about our soul, it’s awakening and experiences in its new life in Christ, how to walk in the Spirit of its knowledge of who we really are, and whose we are, let’s win some souls.
  • Now that we are learning to perceive the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our place in the Kingdom as a citizen not of this world, but of the Kingdom of God; and that God is My King and the supplier of all my need; God is the Source of all my resources; and that Jesus is the Model example that I/we must image and walk after their likeness as my choice to do the Will of God, let’s win souls.
  • Now that we claim to acclaim this Gospel of Jesus Christ as being truth and settled truth in Heaven and that it is great for the life of my soul in earth, let’s win a soul.

 

What is a soul? What do I know about soul? What have I experienced in my ongoing transformation to win another soul, as I am still being processed to become a Son of God?

Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.

God created man/us in His own image meaning we have His spirit nature (this is spirit of man) and His moral character (this is the soul of man); and we were made in His likeness meaning we have the “ability to function like Him”, and He created man/us to have dominion.

 

Soul is

  • the immaterial, invisible part of man; immaterial means spiritual, rather than physical.
  • the disembodied (or unclothed or nakedness of man); disembodied means separated from or existing without the body.
  • the seat of personality; personality is the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual’s distinctive character.
  • the seat of the sentiment element in man, that by which he perceives, reflects, desires, emotions; sentiment is a view of or attitude toward a situation or event; an opinion.
  • the seat of his Will and purpose; The nature of Will implies “self-control” and God gave us the power of  Will; the human Will controls your destiny;  Purpose of the human Will is to be God’s agency of God’s Kingdom administration, that is God wanted the earth to be administered through the human Will. God intended to use the human Will of man to fulfill His Will on/in earth.
  • the seat of his appetite; Appetite is a strong desire or liking for something
  • the inward man, the immortal part of man; Immortal being living forever; never dying or decaying.
  • the seat of new life. New life is your spiritual rebirth through Christ Jesus.

 

  • There is a difference between inviting someone to Church and inviting a soul to meet and accept Christ Jesus in their soul and spirit.
  • There is a difference between just coming to Church to become a member and becoming a disciple (a follower and a learner of Christ)
  • A member is a part or organ of the natural (human) body that metaphorically represents the spiritual Body of Christ which is a body of unified believers in identity, unity, and oneness baptized in/by the Holy Spirit.
  • The members of the Church are the mystical body of Christ meaning a union of all unified believers in a spiritual body with Jesus Christ as their Head.

Colossians 1:17-19 17 And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the Church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell;

  • Mystical means inspiring a sense of spiritual mystery, awe, and fascination.
  • The Church is called mystical because she is a mystery, which God revealed to be true, but her inner essence must be accepted by faith and without a full comprehension by your mind.
  • As a member of the spiritual body of Christ you must mortify your members who are upon the earth since our body and its members are of the physical body belonging to the earth, and are the instruments of sin.

Romans 6:13-14 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

  • A disciple is a follower and a learner of Jesus Christ.
  • A disciple is a new creature in Christ, who follows Christ Jesus, is transformed by Christ Jesus, and is a proclaimer of His greatness in them to the world around them.
  • A disciple is disciplined and in relationship with God, 2 Timothy 2:15
  • A disciple assembles together with other disciples, Hebrews 10:25
  • A disciple is Spirit filled and led by the Spirit, Romans 8:14, Ephesians 5:18
  • A disciple is concerned for others first rather than self, Philippians 2:3-4
  • A disciple is involved and dedicated to serving the Spirit of God to others in their giftedness, 1 Peter 4:11
  • A disciple is prayer in all things, Philippians 4:6-7; 1 Thessalonians 5:17
  • A disciple will lead others to Christ to become disciples, 2 Timothy 2:2
  • A disciple enjoys Salvation, his knowledge and understanding of Jesus, and always rejoicing in Christ (God), 1 Thessalonians 5:16
  • A disciple and a soul winner have a lot in common: Christ Jesus and others.

 

  • There is a difference between life as a spirit being encased in a body and trying to live as a natural practical life in the Word of God. The devil loves you!
  • Practical living is how to live basic, useful, and purposeful in the natural; virtual for the spirit
  • When we read Ezekiel 3:17-21 it refers to the House of Israel and their unwillingness to accept God and His Ways; and as a watchman Ezekiel was given the care and welfare of their souls laid upon him to tell them about their sin, its consequences, and penalties of their sin.
  • As a soul winner we also have the care and welfare of souls upon us as a born again witness.
  • As a soul winner we must be able to speak the successful words of Salvation to sinners which come from the heart of God through His Word, along with our experiences and encounters in Him.
  • As a soul winner of the Gospel with knowledge and experience of the Word of God you must be knowledgeable of the Spirit of God by faith, prayer, and in relationship.
  • Your relationship and dedication must be heard by the soul of the sinner, transgressor, and or back slider.
  • Just as Ezekiel had to tell the people exactly what was coming out of the mouth of God to them even unto death, as a soul winner we must know how to tell that sinner the truth, even unto death.
  • Do your hands have the blood of souls on them because you would not or did not share the Gospel with them?
  • Do your hands have the blood of souls on them because you saw their wrong but refused to tell them the truth?
  • You must be able to tell another soul of his urgent need for Salvation with you being the evidence of proof.
  • This is the season to give the best gift ever! The gift of Christ Jesus shown in your life to give to the life of another.
  • As for me I am full of gifts for the soul traveling on a wayward journey.
  • For that soul’s way that is difficult to control or predict because of unusual or perverse behavior.

Proverbs 11:30-31 30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. 31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.

  • Soul winning is the light that shines in you, witnessing Christ Jesus in and through your life and lifestyle with evidence as your proof.
  • Soul winning will cause the soul of man to see the illumination of Christ Jesus in you as they are spiritually attracted by the Spirit of God to Christ Jesus in you.
  • You will begin to look like Christmas to that weary soul.
  • You become their light in their darkness!
  • Your light will automatically point their darkness to the light in you and not to you, for you, or your stuff.
  • As a soul winner you must be able to take on immortality as a spirit being leaving the human body, but you must be able to explain it through your experience to those that are lost and blinded by Satan.

1 Corinthians 15:53-55 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. (in order to see Christ Jesus) 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  (You didn’t die, but you will sleep)     55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? (Your soul shall live in eternity with the Spirit of God and His righteousness and not in Hell with all your senses, in torment for eternity).

  • See a new born child in the natural being born is marvelous and an amazing wonder, but seeing a soul being reborn again, accepting Christ Jesus as Lord, Master, and Savior over their entire being is extraordinarily miraculous, astonishing, amazing, very unusual, and remarkable for the rest of their life in earth.
  • Just having to do life all over as a new creature converted and being transformed into the image of his Creator. What a mighty God we serve?
  • Soul winning is or should be done by every witness that can attest to being an extraordinarily miraculous, new creature in Christ Jesus walking in this earth by and in the Will of God who art in Heaven, because He is now seated in you in earth.
  • Witnessing means that you are the evidence, the proof of Salvation talking and telling another soul/other souls about Jesus and their need to obtain Him in their soul.
  • Being a witness is having knowledge of your souls Shepherd, Bishop, Lord, and Savior from a personal belief and experience of change in Him.
  • Not from a personal observation, but from your own personal experience and encounter that is within you.
  • Your souls experience will escort you into the Kingdom of God and its experiences, the Kingdom encounters, rules, regulations, laws, benefits, etc. as a citizen.

St Luke 17:20-21 20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation:     21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

  • Once your soul has met the prescribed requirements and measures of the Kingdom of God you live from within yourself, as you demonstrate to others the Will of God for their soul.
  • As a soul winner you are in a place of awareness and perception of the fact that all souls belong to the Lord, the soul of your father, the souls of your children, and surely the soul that sins shall die, but still belong to the Lord, Ezekiel 18:4.

Ecclesiastes 12:7 tells us then shall the dust, that is your flesh return to the earth as it was, and your spirit shall return back to God who gave it to you.

St Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

  • The Word of God must be in your heart in Spirit and in Truth, along with you being the evidence of the product of Salvation.
  • The faith of your soul in Christ will do all the Will of God has set forth in it in you.
  • Soul winning is a spiritual process! It is not a carnal process!
  • True witnesses as well as leaders are and should be spiritual watchmen.
  • Your experiences in change and your encounters in relationship is your knowledge and understanding of the Lord God and it makes you a watchman.
  • You must follow the Spirit of Christ Jesus to win souls.

St Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of me.

  • The world belongs to God and is His Harvest, though it may appear that Satan has total control of it.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

  • We have already been taken out of the world spiritually as His own to now enter into His labor and the works of the Lord in His Will for His souls.
  • A soul winner will always and only speak on behalf of the Spirit of God.
  • You will never be able to witness or minister Christ without knowledge that has been tested and tried and sealed with the approval of God.
  • As soul winners we must warn the people of this world through our life, lifestyle, and standards as our evidence of proof that Jesus is Lord over the soul of man.
  • We must take the responsibility as being a born again new creature in Christ.
  • We must know that we are held accountable for what we know and not freely give to others.
  • Am I my brother’s keeper? Yes, I am!
  • In Genesis 4:9 God asked Cain where Abel is thy brother. Cain responded with he did not know: Am I my brother’s keeper?
  • What does it mean to be born again? It means to be born again as a new creature in Christ; to be responsible for the actions, behavior, or whereabouts of another soul.
  • Cain’s bitterness with hatred and jealousy that manifested into a deep root of bitterness toward his brother caused him to become his brother’s executioner.
  • Who am I spiritually related to as a new creature? You ask who my brother in the Word of God is.
  • Whoever will do the Will of the Father in Heaven is your brother, sister, mother, St Matthew 12:46-50.
  • Your lineage changed so does your inheritance as a new creature.
  • Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, 1 Corinthians 15:50.
  • We are to deliver the same good news from a heart that is converted to being transformed into a Son of God, my new inheritance.

Is your conscience the culprit?

Is your conscience the culprit?

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2021 All Rights Reserved

 

Culprit is one guilty of an offense. Is your conscience the culprit of your Will?

 

Hebrews 10:1-4

1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? Because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.

3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.

4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

 

  • For example, when a man or a woman whore around at a specific time of year, a season that is, then all the other times they don’t do that is because they made a promise to themselves that I’ve got to stop doing this but the promise of stopping that act is only being suppressed but your conscience is still holding on to that sin and when that season of time rolls around again you remember the thing that you don’t want to do but is now ready to perform it again because it is in the conscience. Your conscience was never cleansed by the suppression.
  • Paul described that as an inward struggle with sinful desires remembered in the conscience with your Will waiting to perform it again.
  • The culprit is your conscience holding on to the memory of your sins.

 

Read Romans 7:14-23

 

  • Jesus has come and His coming has put away and abolished ceremonial traditions, rituals, and laws making those sacrifices insufficient and will never make you perfect.
  • These sacrifices done annually could not take away the guilt and consciousness of sin.
  • These sacrifices only brought in a fresh remembrance of their sins, because the blood of bulls and goats is powerless to take away sins. And God had no delight in them.

 

Conscience

  • God has a built-in mechanism built in every individual to send an alarm when you are about to break a law, that is spiritually and naturally.
  • God has an inherent mechanism built-in the human system that goes off called the conscience.
  • Inherent means existing in something as a permanent, essential or characteristic attribute.
  • You know when you are wrong! You don’t need a preacher, a Pastor, Bishop, or an Apostle to tell you when you are wrong. You don’t need an anointing to know when you are wrong, there is an alarm built in you!
  • But we ignore this alarm when it goes off within us because we have chosen to sin.
  • Everyone that is doing wrong and has done wrong knows that they are doing wrong.
  • If we obey our conscience we will never have regrets! But if you disobey your conscience you will always regret the “violation of your conscience”.
  • Your conscience has a way of keeping alive that, which you do wrong or have done wrong, and even that which you have done right or is doing right, but it is through the Blood of Jesus as a new creature that cleanses our conscience, but it won’t wipe it out, but your choice toward Christ will bring it under subjection to the Will of God.
  • For example, forgiveness does not cancel memories, but it takes the sting out of them.
  • Your conscience is defiled by sin.

 

Conscience is the witness borne to one’s conduct by conscience, that faculty by which we apprehend the Will of God, as that which is designed to govern our lives.

Conscience is defined as “an inner voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior.

Conscience refers to your awareness that your actions are right or wrong, as in a guilty conscience.

  • The Word of God is the main tool, the principal tool for the formation of conscience when it is assimilated by study, prayer, and practice, along with the goodexamples of the Saints in fellowship, support, and enlightenment of the Word of God.
  • You can educate your conscience through study, prayer, faith, experience, etc.

 

Hebrews 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

 

  • Because of the relationship that blood has to life, blood signifies the supreme offering made to God through His Son Jesus.
  • Purge is to rid something or someone of an unwanted quality, condition, or feeling.
  • Not only does the Blood of Christ save us, but it cleanse our conscience so we can understand how to honor God, reverence, and worship God because of what I know and experience about Him.
  • His blood protects us by taking away all our sins, its penalty death, guilt, and shame.
  • When sin, temptation, test, trials, and evil come it must see the blood of Jesus over the doorpost of our hearts.
  • Dead works the works of our hands applied to the Will of God in order to make an attempt to find favor and earn acceptance to be made righteous before God by our own effort, ability or Willpower.
  • Dead works we performed when we were separated from the life of God; estranged from Him living in spiritual ignorance and darkness.

 

Ephesians 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.

 

  • Some of us as believers are still there living in darkness, having a form of godliness.
  • It is hard to praise and worship someone you don’t anything about!

 

Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

 

  • This is the way to do it Christ’s way to spiritually cleanse our conscience.
  • Your conscience is your ability to distinguish between what is right and what is wrong.
  • To awaken your conscience is a calling to awaken the inner power, to get in touch with that part of you that has no limits.
  • Your conscience is awakened with your soul’s conversion and transformation.
  • This is the part where every believer should learn to live spiritually with no regrets.
  • We should live signifying a conscience that is so controlled by the apprehension of the Spirit of God’s presence that you realize that griefs are to be borne in accordance with His Will.

 

1 Peter 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God; which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

 

  • What does it mean to have a clear conscience? It is to be free or feel free of guilt or responsibility.
  • For example, I have a clear conscience when I know I did all I could to help you in the Word of God.

 

Conscious

Conscious is aware of and responding to one’s surroundings; awake; having knowledge of something.

  • Your conscious allows you to be aware of your place in the world, while your conscience allows you to behave in this world in morally decisions (morally here means your arguments of reason, your condemning or approving thoughts) and socially acceptable ways.
  • Behave is to act or conduct oneself in a specified way, especially toward others; conduct oneself in accordance with the accepted norms of a society or group.
  • Focused to paying particular attention to.
  • Spiritual consciousness is to be awakened
  • Spiritual consciousness is to be aware in understanding that we are spirit beings encased in a body.
  • An example of conscious is waking up in the morning.

 

 

In closing,

 

  • God will not take anything away from you that you are not willing to give up.
  • You can pray, beg, and plead with Him to take something away from you He will not do it because if He takes it without your confession of wrong doing then you will think that you were not guilty of anything, and God just took it.
  • What makes it a struggle in giving up your wrong doing is your unwillingness to give it up. You prefer God to take it than to give it up!
  • Your conscience will tell on you when there is no deliverance.
  • Let the Word of God clean the whole house, which is all of you.
  • Serving the Lord God must come out of a good conscience.
  • What is a good conscience? A good conscience is when a person is conscientious and striving to do what is right and carries it out.
  • Being conscientious says you want to do right and not wrong.
  • Being conscientious has to do with being careful, thoughtful, focus, and decent.
  • Being conscientious is a virtue!
  • A virtue is a behavior showing high moral standards.

 

Acts 24:16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God, and toward men.

 

  • Paul is saying here that he always exercise and discipline himself by mortifying his body, deadening his carnal affections, bodily appetites, and worldly desires, endeavoring in all respects to have a clear unshaken, blameless conscience void of offense toward God and men.
  • Mortify means to deaden the senses of the body to subdue its sinful nature by denial and discipline.
  • With that then comes your testimony of : Confession = repentance = forgiveness = faith = deliverance

 

2 Corinthians 1:12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

 

  • Your conscience has a testimony that should say that we have conducted ourselves in the world with devout and pure motives and godly sincerity, not in the flesh’s wisdom but by the grace of God; His unmerited favor and merciful kindness by which God, exerts His Holy influence upon our soul, turn us to Christ, keeps us, strengthens us, and increases us in Christian virtues.
  • The Bible declares that the conscience is defiled by sin
  • Our conscience is seared and defiled by sin
 

1 Timothy 4:1-2

1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

 

  • We are living in times where believers are falling away from the faith because they are looking for stories, fables, something that will tickle their ears, and make them feel good in their comfort of sin.
  • A seared conscience is one that is completely dead; to make one’s conscience, heart, or feelings insensitive.
  • This is that time when they will not endure sound doctrine, but follow after their own lust to and with false teachers, having itching ears that will turn from the truth and be turned to fables. (2 Timothy 4:3-4).
  • Sin leaves tarnish on a person’s mind so that they do not look at their life in quite the same way anymore.

 

Psalm 40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

 

  • Sins stain will overtake you so that you will not be able to look up to Jesus, nor call His name.
  • Sin creates a sense of estrangement from God, leaving a tarnishing film on a person’s mind and heart.
  • Adam and Eve sin occurred after God had instructed Adam not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and in the day that you eat you shall surely die (Genesis 2:16-17).
  • Nobody had to tell them they had done wrong they knew it the moment they ate of that tree that God had forbidden.
  • An alarm of wrong immediately rushed to their knowledge that they was wrong; they felt guilt and fear, and they realized that they were naked.
  • In this knowledge that they were naked they hid from the voice of God as He entered in the Garden.
  • The virtue of their innocence was lost.

 

Titus 1:15 Paul reminds Titus, Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

  • Sin will pervert the mind of the believer in so that they do not look at their life as they did before.

 

Amen

Remembering what God has said to you

Remembering what God has said to you

Apostle Tracey Robinson, All Rights Reserved 2021

 

Isaiah 43:26 God says to put Him in remembrance of your merits, that is the quality of you being good or worthy of His Will, Word, and Deed; let us plead and argue together. Set your case before Me that you may be justified, proved right.

  • Write down what the Lord has said you.
  • Don’t trust your Will, your age, or your mind to perceive, store, and deposit what God has said to you in your heart.
  • The Word of God is not like the word of man.
  • What God says must go into your heart?
  • Writing down what the Lord God says will bring it back to your remembrance then deposit it into your heart, as you remind and discuss it with God the Father.
  • Hearing will also deposit what the Lord God has said in His Word(s) providing you perceive them in Spirit and in Truth and your heart is trusting God .
  • Remembering what you’ve heard, write down, and study will put it into your heart causing you to walk in its statutes and ordinances.
  • Trying to remember to memorize will put the Word of God into your intellect and it will never deposit into your heart, because the Word is Spirit to be deposited in the soul and spirit of man.
  • The Word of God is spiritual and is placed into your spiritual heart in your soul.
  • Remember means have in or be able to bring to one’s mind an awareness of
  • Awareness is knowledge or perception of a situation or fact; the state of being conscious of something.
  • This is why believers, Saints, Sons of God, all need the Holy Spirit.
  • The Holy Spirit job is to counsel, help, intercede, advocate, strengthen and standby.
  • The Holy Spirit is sent in sent to you in the Name of Jesus to be in His place, to represent Him, and act on Jesus’ behalf.
  • The Holy Spirit will teach us all things and will cause us to recall and bring back to us everything He has told us. St John 14:26
  • The Holy Ghost will call to mind to remember the way of the Lord as He instructs you.

Psalm 77:11 KJV Amplified I will earnestly recall the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will earnestly remember the wonders you performed for our fathers of old.

  • Remembering what God has said to you in His Word written or verbally is to be “mindful of”.
  • Being mindful mean to pay close attention to, being especially conscious of His Word to become aware of the fact that Salvation is individual and personal.
  • Being mindful means that you are aware of Salvations intent to “change your whole being” back to who and what the Spirit of God created.
  • Remember to be mindful of the fact that you are a spirit being encased in a body, and that you must become spirit in order to communicate with the Spirit of God.
  • Most of us as believers are more mindful, fully aware of our thoughts, feelings both physically and mentally then we are about the Will of God toward our life in the earth.
  • We are too careful not to forget our flesh and its lust, desires, habits, and practices. This is being mindful!

St Mark 8:18 speaks of the dullness of the disciples in being spiritually blind and deaf toward Jesus miraculously feeding the 5,000. He said, having eyes, see ye not? And having ears, hear ye not? And do ye not remember?

  • In other words the disciples are with Jesus now for a while, listening to the teachings, and as soon as He performs a miracle they lack understanding.
  • Faith carries with him understanding!
  • Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, Romans 10:17.
  • In other words faith comes in the Word and he identifies the agent performing the action to the hearer.
  • Paul was not reminding Timothy that Christ was raised from the dead, but what was needful for him was to remember to keep in mind the One who rose, the Source and Supplier of all his requirements.

2 Timothy 2:7-8 7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.           8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

 

In closing,

  • Christ Jesus is the ONLY One that can and will bring the Word of God back to your remembrance of what the Spirit of God has said to you.
  • Christ warned the disciples of their sufferings, well the same applies to us as well.

St John 16:4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.

  • When your circumstances, situations, and issues of your life arise up against you don’t be ignorant of the Spirit of God and His Word to you.
  • As a new creature you must receive your heart transplant by the Spirit of God.
  • He will give us one (The body of Christ has one heart, the same heart)
  • He will put a new spirit in you. (Holy Ghost)
  • He will take away the stony heart and give you a new heart of flesh.
  • His new heart comes with His statutes, ordinances, and we will/can do them.
  • He will then be our God and we His people.
  • We really walk according to the heart and what’s in it.
  • Evaluate your heart and its contents!
  • So as a man thinketh in his heart so is he.
  • You really are what is in your heart!
  • Your character is revealed from out of your heart through your mouth.

 

 

Amen

Salvation is based upon my awareness of my need for Christ Jesus

Salvation is based upon my awareness of my need for Christ Jesus

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2021 All Rights Reserved

 

We have a generation of church goers, not people who have gotten saved or desire to be saved. A generation of people that saw the gathering of the Saints and they too started commingling among the brothers and sisters.

We show evidence and proof of our Salvation, its impact, and effects in our lives by the things we used to do, but don’t do them anymore.

If you are truly in fact saved there should be a change in your life with evidence that you are a born again, new creature in Christ that is walking in the Light of the Kingdom of God.

Evidence not the suppression and hiding of your old nature and its style.

We have many “subcategories” of spirituality that does not put the power of God’s plan onto the works of Christ; instead we credit it to the works of man, through tradition and religion, ceremonial rituals with a formalism that denies the actual power of God’s plan called Salvation.

 

  • Adam and Eve were put out of the Order and Presence of God when they became “unaware” of the Spirit of God.
  • In their unawareness they no longer saw their need for God since they had become like God.
  • Their knowledge of His goodness quickly left them.
  • Genesis 3:22 where God said, “behold the man is become as one of us to know good and evil”.
  • Unaware means to have no knowledge of a situation or fact; lost consciousness of the fact that you did not know; head in the clouds and not knowing
  • Adam and Eve were not aware of the fact that they were naked before the seduction of the serpent with Eve, then Eve seducing her husband Adam. They were not aware of their nakedness, their genital parts being different, or what their use was. Why? Because the glory of God and His Will kept that knowledge or information from their being. They only had the knowledge of good and truth.
  • Today being born in sin has made us unaware of the need that I/we have for a Savior, a Lord, and Master over my life, meaning God the Father.
  • Being born in this “sin suit” has made me/you to think that we truly are a god our own god.
  • That spirit is in these flesh suits that we all have to wear.
  • When Adam, Eve, and the serpent took the knowledge they now have to let God know we don’t need you to oversee us anymore because we now know what you know about good and evil making us just like you.
  • Once Adam and Eve sinned they became aware of the fact that they were naked and also became “self-centered” and aware of themselves.
  • In their awareness they perceived themselves to be like God, but with fear.

Genesis 3:10-11 10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. 11 And He said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

  • Aware means having a knowledge or perception of a situation or fact.
  • The words spoken to Eve by the serpent were conceived when he told her that you shall not surely die for God knows that in the day you eat, your eyes will be opened, and you shall be as gods knowing good and evil in Genesis 3:4-5.
  • Satan had sown a seed in Eve causing her to become more curious and desirous of the tree that God had told Adam not to eat from. The temptation of tree became more and more attractive to her senses.

James 1:14-15 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hat conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. This is a spiritual death!

  • Eve conceived spiritual death for herself and Adam by giving him also of the tree to eat from.
  • Once we all come into the knowledge of the truth and realize that Salvation is not a playground for us to come in at Will and play as we please, but is offered and given to all mankind based upon his awareness of his need for Christ Jesus.
  • God is not giving away Salvation. Salvation is gift offered to all mankind from God to come back into awareness that you are not a god, you are not like God, God is not like you, and yet you have to have knowledge of your need for Christ Jesus in order to make it back to the Father and live in this world.
  • Satan’s job then and now is to keep you from ever obtaining the knowledge of who you were and what your life in Christ was like in the beginning.
  • God knew us before we were born, before we were formed in our mother’s womb He knew us.
  • The reason we don’t know where we were once before is because we have become aware in these bodies. We know too much about our flesh and its Will, lust, desires, habits, and practices.
  • We have been conditioned and convinced ourselves generation after generation to believe that we don’t need God the Father and we truly can make it on our own, when in fact we can do nothing without Him.
  • We have a knowledge that is manmade, man taught, and man orchestrated that is self-centered and designed to indoctrinate us about self as being a god, meaning we will never obtain the knowledge about our Father God because we are too consumed and preoccupied with self.
  • Everyone that enters into the straight and narrow way of Salvation must experience and complete a wilderness journey experience in Christ that will make you aware of your need for Christ Jesus.
  • This wilderness journey experience is not a “cake walk in the park”, but a journey of change that will cause you to hit rock bottom until you see, seek, and acknowledge the need for Christ Jesus.
  • It is not a journey that will require what your knowledge has required for you without Christ.
  • It is a journey that will destroy and rid you of your selfish nature that will never allow you to exalt the Lord as being God.
  • Everyone must have a journey in order to get the knowledge of God the Father and what all He has accomplished through and in the birth, burial, and resurrection of His Son Jesus for your souls return back to Him.
  • Your wilderness experience journey will not be a journey whereas you will gain knowledge of God without the experience of the knowledge you will perceive.
  • It must be tested and tried to establish the newness as a born again creature in Christ as well as transform you from all that you know back to what you really know before being self-centered took place through the flesh.
  • In this journey wilderness experience soul will come to life because he is hearing the Father and desires to communicate back with the Father as he journey back to Him.
  • The problem today is not that Salvation does not work and is not effective against the sin of man, but except that awareness of man’s soul and spirit has been made and acknowledged by him to destroy the spirit of spiritual death that was once conceived through the flesh.
  • Salvation will give you a hunger and thirst for the Spirit of God, but you’ve got to come to the knowledge of knowing the awareness of your need for Christ.
  • The hunger is already in you for Christ, but Satan comes along and will give you another quest (search for something else) that will take you away from your need for Christ to have you thinking and desiring other things for it to get into your heart i.e., a business, more education, promotion on your job, a new car, house, thoughts about sex, drugs, alcohol, fornication, adultery, idolatry, etc. that will set you back farther away from the voice of God and His Will.

 

In closing,

  • In your day of visitation, that is that day when the Spirit of the Lord begin to spiritually attract you and draw you and give you a desire to come to Him through His Son Jesus (St John 6:44) then will your awareness for the need for Him which is the beginning of the knowledge of Him be made known to you and your need for Him.
  • You want to live, but you must live in Christ, not half way in or part of the way in.
  • You must be born again just as the scriptures have said! There is no other way.
  • In your awareness of your need for the Father and His Will you must be willing to give up your throne as the god over your life, acknowledge and accept ALL of the prescribed terms, methods, and measures of the Salvation Plan of God for you.

 

 

 

Amen
