The Voice of Your Conscience or the Voice of the Holy Spirit Which one are you really hearing and operating in the Gospel through?

The Voice of Your Conscience or the Voice of the Holy Spirit

Which one are you really hearing and operating in the Gospel through?

Apostle Tracey Robinson

 

Romans 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, there conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

 

Does the Law of your heart consist of the knowledge of good and evil?

Is the Law written and operating in our hearts before Salvation?

Does your conscience bear witness to the knowledge of good and evil written in the heart?

Do your thoughts accuse to condemn or excuse approving one another?

 

St Matthew 5:17 (Jesus said,) Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

 

A bit of summary about the Law?

  • The Law refers to the period between Adam’s rebellion against God and the giving of the Law of Moses (known as the Ten Commandments, Exodus 20:1- ).
  • The ostensible (stated or appearing to be true, but not necessarily so) aim of the Law is to restrain the evil tendencies natural to man in his fallen estate; yet in experience law finds itself not merely ineffective, it actually provoked those tendencies to a greater activity.
  • The Law of Moses was the insufficiency of the flesh and it’s Will to be made free from the law of sin and death.

 

Galatians 3:10-14

10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that continueth not in all things which are written in the Book of the Law to do them.

11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree:

14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

  • The Law was powerless to save and still is.

 

Romans 8:1-4

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 

The relation between Christ and the Law

 

  • The intention of the gift of the Spirit is to constrain (to compel or force someone to follow a particular course of action) the believer to a life in which the natural tendencies of man will have no place, and produce in him the fruit of the Spirit.
  • Therefore, the Law has nothing to say against the fruit of the Spirit, and the believer in not under the Law because the Law finds no scope in the life of the believer as he is led by the Spirit.
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is spiritual and was always that by which He Himself lived in the days of His flesh.
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus was the law, and or principles by which Christ lived by.
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is a law of faith, a principle which demands only faith on man’s part. Romans 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded, By what law? Of works? Nay: but by the law of faith
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus confirmed the Law as being of Divine authority, but yet He presented a higher standard of life than perfunctory obedience, an action or gesture carried out with a minimum of effort or reflection through the flesh.
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus showed Christ as being superior to all, over all human interpretations.
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is the animating principle by which the Holy Spirit acts as the Imparter of life. St John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is a law of righteousness. Romans 9:32 Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at the at stumbling stone;
  • The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is a general principle presenting righteousness as the object and outcome of keeping a law, particularly the Law of Moses, Galatians 3:21Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
  • The Law of sin, Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
  • This is the Law! The principle by which sin exerts its influence and power despite the desire to do what is right.
  • This is our conscience operating in the knowledge of good and evil, without the Holy Spirit.
  • The Epistle to the Hebrews the Law is treated especially in regard to the contrast between the Priesthood of Christ and that established under the Law of Moses, and in regards to access to God and to worship God. In these respects the Law made nothing perfect.

Hebrews 7:19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the brining in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

 

All of the Law summarized by Jesus into two (2) Commandments

St Matthew 22:37-40

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. This is true religion!

 

  • Love enjoined with a whole heart.
  • A heart where the Spirit of God is within, along with His statutes and ordinances to do them. Ezekiel 11:19-20.
  • Brotherly love as a duty to your neighbor in incorporated in that new heart.

 

  • Why do many still teach from the Old Testament?
  • Why do the prophets today try to imitate the prophets of the Old Testament prophets when their assignment was to usher in the Son of God?
  • What is the assignment of the prophets today, Jesus has already come?

 The Voice of Your Conscience

 

  • Conscience an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior.
  • Your Conscience is seated in the soulish realm. The body realm is the nose (smell). The spirit realm is hope.
  • Your conscience is deep within the spirit man that recognizes truth, and sees what is right and what is wrong.
  • Your conscience is innate (inborn; natural) and every human being has a conscience.
  • Your conscienceis part of your human psyche (your mind). God created it when He gave us the abilities of self-awareness and rational thinking.
  • Notice that it’s spelled with two words, con and science. Science comes from the Latin scire meaningknowledge,” and con means “with.”
  • So, we are thinking with knowledge, the knowledge of good and evil!

 

  • Conscience: Internal or self-knowledge, or judgment of right and wrong;
  • Conscience: the faculty, power or principle within us, which decides on the lawfulness or unlawfulness of our own actions and affections, and instantly approves or condemns them.
  • Conscience is called by some writers the moral sense (the ability to distinguish between right and wrong), and considered as an original faculty of our nature.
  • Others question the propriety of considering conscience as a distinct faculty or principle.
  • The conscience manifests itself in the feeling of obligation we experience, which precedes, attends and follows our actions.
  • Conscience is first occupied in ascertaining our duty, before we proceed to action; then in judging of our actions when performed.

 

  • 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 need content, input in order to make judgment.
  • Based upon the knowledge we have acquired and accumulated, conscience is that mechanism in a human person that judges what to do based upon the way we’ve been formed.
  • In a subjective sense it has to be formed! (In a subjective sense meaning a sensationthat does not result from any external stimulus and is perceptible only by the subject. Synonym: internal sensation.)

 

  • Our conscience could be malformed (abnormally formed; misshapen) if we don’t have good formation, but even then deep down we recognize good and evil.
  • Conscience is mysteriously unique to the spirit man that have this innate (inborn; natural) sense of what is true and good because we are created in the image and likeness of God; and we desire to choose that which is good and avoid that which is evil.
  • Conscience can be conditioned by your culture (the customs, arts, social institutions, and achievements of a particular nation, people, or other social group); your parents or guardians; influence from the House of Prayer that you frequently attend; the influence of close relations; etc. These influences will condition the forming of your conscience.
  • Wrongful traditions and religions of men can wrongfully condition our conscience.
  • This can be malformed or distorted and that’s why we have people who go against their conscience and do evil.
  • We use the phrase “they don’t have a conscience” when a person can do wrong and evil at any degree to another or even to themselves or others properties.
  • Deep down inside of all of us is this inborn understanding that comes in the sound of a little small voice that whispers to our heart (or mind) to say yes do this or no avoid that.
  • Your conscience either gives us a sense of condemnation or wrong.
  • Conscience is the “conviction” that you have done wrong.
  • Your conscience will bring guilt to your lives or it will release us from that; it will either accuses or excuses.

 

  • Evaluate the voice that your hear!

 

  • The saying “something told me” is the phrase many use in order to not attribute that voice to the voice of the Spirit of God.

 

  • Many use their intuition, gut feelings, what they already know or heard about someone, as well as “something told me” as a voice of their reasoning to what they are about to do as being right or wrong.

 

The Voice of the Holy Spirit

 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the living God; (in Christianity) the third person of the Trinity; the Spirit of God spiritually active in the world.  

Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation in whom also, after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

  • He is the distinct personality in the Godhead of the Spirit of God.
  • He is a person that forms an individual’s distinctive character or qualities into His
  • Sealed means fasten or close securely.
  • Only the Spirit of God can unseal the promise of His Spirit in you, based upon a series of rebellion and unbelief.
  • The Holy Spirit has the same functions as the conscience, only at a higher standard that is of the Spirit of God’s righteousness.
  • He speaks and gives us a sense of conviction, as well as come to convict the world.
  • He has the same sensing to speak and say that you are doing wrong.
  • The Holy Spirit and the conscience both respond to the same issues of morality in our lives; only the Holy Spirit responds in the moral character of God within us, which is through the soul.
  • In order to develop this sensing of a small voice of where the Holy Spirit and the conscience coincide we must simply agree with the Spirit of the Word of God and His Will. His Will overrides your Will upon agreement, submission, and commitment.
  • The Holy Spirit reveals and reflects on the things that are eternal from the Will of God, His Way, and His Word according to His plans and purpose that are built in you for earth’s purpose.
  • It is the Word of God that will explain what the Spirit of God will accuse and excuse. This is why it is so important to study to show ourselves approved of God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, but rightly dividing the Word of Truth on what the Holy Spirit requires. 2 Timothy 2:15
  • Studying the Word to please God approves us to God.

 

In closing,

 

  • Who really is the voice in your operations to demonstrate and manifest the Will of God in earth?
  • In other words, when you say the Lord said, whose voice is really speaking to you from your conscience with feelings, what you already know, or what the Holy Spirit is revealing?
  • We should never violate the conscience or the Holy Spirit.
  • When we form matters of right and wrong based upon the tradition and religion of men instead of basing them upon biblical and spiritual law then we say that we are justified in our saying and doings.
  • For example, racism, voicing your opinions, killings, and violent protesting, etc. is it a process of the conscience or the Holy Spirit to determine the right and wrong? And if it is the Holy Spirit should we allow the Spirit of God to apply any and all instructions, speech, guidance, etc.
  • We can believe in our conscience that something is good, right, just, and moral and it can still be ungodly and out of the Will of God.
  • For example, adultery and fornication are sins of the flesh, but yet we will justify the rightness of it based upon what? Surely it is not the conscience or the Holy Spirit!
  • Believing in the voice of our conscience without the Spirit of God incorporated is dangerous.
  • Religious spirits, the spirit of delusion is when we say the Lord said and it is the knowledge of our conscience speaking.
  • God is not going to tell you what you already know. He speaks on a level higher than where and what we know in order to bring us into where He would have us to be.
  • When the Holy Spirit speaks He will always speak in the direction of glorifying the Spirit of God and His Will.
  • When the Holy Spirit speaks He will speak to you something that you don’t know about yourself as you grow and move forward in Him.
  • When the Holy Spirit speaks, He gives specific instructions and directions of His Will as it pertains to you.
  • When the Holy Spirit speaks He will speak to you a parable or something that you can understand about you and where He is taking you to seek Him more.
  • Personal convictions can block and hinder the Holy Spirits function, operations, and His way of moving freely through you.
  • The conscience must be surrendered and possessed by the Spirit of God in order to agree with His Spirit and His Way.
  • God has a built-in mechanism built in every human being that will send an alarm when we are about to break a law. That inherent mechanism built in the human system of the spirit man that goes off in us like a voice is called the conscience. This alarm or voice will sound off when we/you are wrong!
  • Everyone that does wrong or has done wrong know that they ae doing wrong or have done wrong.
  • If we obey the voice of our conscience to those that don’t have the Holy Ghost’s possession in that area you will never regret “violating your conscience”.
  • Natural and spiritual laws are protected by conscience and creation. Creation knows how to protect itself!
  • Conscience protects God’s laws.
  • Conscience has a way of keeping it alive in you when you have done wrong. Thank God for the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus.
  • This is when your conscience has taken over when you have become “entangled” with worldly affairs as being a Kingdom citizen. This is impossible to be a part of both!
  • 2 Timothy 2:4 No man that warreth entagleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
  • When we put our feelings in the affairs of the world we are no longer representing the Kingdom and its principles.
  • The world, the flesh, and the devil will entangle you in your mixed belief with feelings and emotions of people and their circumstances, especially when they don’t move God.
  • The Bible clearly states and will not change “for the wages of sin is death; and the gift of God is eternal life” through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23
  • That sounds like a choice has to be made by us all individually!
  • In St Matthew 22:15 even the Pharisees took counsel on how they might entangle Jesus in His talk.

Responsibility & Accountability How much more does God have to do before you agree with Him wholeheartedly?

Responsibility & Accountability

How much more does God have to do before you agree with Him wholeheartedly?

Apostle Tracey Robinson

 

God’s plan in you is complete! You must grow into it! It won’t grow on you unless you are growing in it.

 

I accepted this calling based upon my relationship with God, not man’s interpretation of what God was doing in my life, but my relationship that had been established in Him.

Ask yourself did you accept the call of God into Salvation and where He would have you to serve Him based upon what? Was a prophecy? Was it a feeling to do a greater good? What was it?

What was it that spiritually attracted you to God and His Way? I didn’t say He attracted you as in St John 6:44!

How do I know that it was based upon the faith and relationship with God? Mankind wanted control over the glimpse of what God would reveal in my life, but what they really failed to see was my relationship with God.

It is the relationship that I have with Him that gives me the faith, the confidence, the trust, and dependence upon Him and not on man.

God is my Source, not man! Jesus is Lord, not man!

My Apostle RL Howard never told me that he saw the Lord calling me into anything. He would always encourage me in the Will of God to stay there and trust in His Spirit, but never ever said he saw the Lord calling me into anything. Now, why was that?

When the calling of God came I had to know that God was calling me. I had to accept the responsibility of the calling of God, and be ready to be held accountable to God to the call and not to man, his feelings, opinions, comments, or suggestions, and not to mention tradition and religion.

Answering the call of God may appear to be easy and that anyone can do that, but without relationship with God you end up irresponsible and unaccountable to the Will of God to end up compromising in tradition and religion.

Being responsible to the Will of God is having the capacity to perceive the distinction of right and wrong.

Relationship with the Spirit of God requires the Spirit of God being in relations with Him in you. To understand this will require willingness, obedience, and faith just to begin.

 

  • Responsibility means the state of being responsible or accountable. The state of means your overall physical condition being responsible. That which one is answerable; ability to meet obligations or to act without superior authority or guidance.
  • Responsibility is an outward appearance, which is fueled by accountability inwardly.
  • So it is possible to look responsible outwardly, but not be held accountable inwardly.
  • In order to do this as defined in ministry you must have the spirit of the leader, and the leaders Leader to become responsible and accountable not to the leader but for your own behavior and mannerism.
  • Accountability/accountable means liable to be called to account; responsible; capable of being accounted for or explained.

 

As a Father, God is responsible and accountable to us for Salvation, the overall program, its process, and its progression in us and for us individually and corporately.

As a Son you become responsible to the Will of God’s program and you must be held accountable for all your actions in word, deed, and thought toward the program and all its recipients to come.

 

St John 3:16

As a Father, God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son.

As a Son or a believer becoming a Son, we are the responsible whosoever that must believe in Him so we won’t perish, but have everlasting life. This is responsibility because we must take on this.

As a Son or a believer becoming a Son must have faith in the conditions of Salvation. This is your responsibility to take on this task, mission, assignment, etc.

 

As a Father God saw that mankind needed a way out of what Adam had did when he fell from God’s Grace.

God is responsible and held Himself accountable to all mankind to permanently fix it, not amend it but fix it.

As a Son or a believer becoming a Son all we have to do is surrender our whole heart and Will to God through Jesus and take on the accountability of telling the devil to get behind you. This is your responsibility and accountability to what God has already put in place for every generation to come.

  • We are responsible to make it known to others and everyone what God has done through us in this life to show His greatness.
  • We keep trying to treat God like we did under the Law by saying this is not effective either.

 

St Luke 11:9-13

9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

10 For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?

12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?

13 If ye then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

 

  • Verse 9 is your responsibility.
  • Verse 10 is your accountability.
  • Verses 11-13 is the Father’s accountability.

 

As a Father, He chastens His Son as a mark of love for His son. God’s responsibility and held accountable for the outcome of the chastening.

Hebrews 12:6-8

6 For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth.

7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

 

As a Son or a believer becoming a Son, if you endure chastening. You are held responsible to endure.

8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. As a Father God is accountable to ensure that if you are not a partaker of chastisement then you are not His son.

 

Immature believers, Hebrews 6:12-14

 

As a Son you are responsible and held accountable for your spiritual maturity.

As a Son you are responsible and accountable for being able to have your senses exercised to discern both good and evil through the Spirit of God, not through your conscience using the knowledge of good and evil without the Spirit of God.

 

  • Your spiritual growth is not God’s responsibility when He has supplied all that you will need to grow and prosper in Him, soul and spirit wise. This is your responsibility and you are accountable for your growth.
  • This is how you know if and how you are growing when your 5-senses with the feelings of your flesh are no longer working against the Will of God.
  • The flesh, its Will and senses are an enemy to God.
  • Your physical age has nothing to do with whether you comply with the Will of God.
  • You are responsible for your actions, behavior, and mannerism, not God!
  • You are responsible and accountable for knowing the Spirit of God in you, as well as in another believer.
  • It is called spiritual discernment. It’s a gift given by God to His Sons.

 

Jesus Christ is our example and has set the course for us all in how to become a son

 

  • Jesus was a babe. He did not remain a baby.
  • He was a young boy that took the responsibility in saying and doing that “I must be about my Father’s business”.

St Luke 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?

  • Jesus was accountable for the mission ahead of Him that He must fulfill.
  • He had an eager desire that was fueled with zealousness and fervent with love for the soul of man.
  • As a son He grew spiritually! Not superficial, but spiritual! St Luke 2:40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
  • Jesus was not just existing or occurring at or on the surface. He didn’t just appear to be real, but when examined, tempted, tried, hoodwinked, deceived, etc. He was real.
  • As a son He was tempted. He was responsible and accountable to God even during His times of temptations. St Matthew 4:1-11.
  • As a son Jesus had to be responsible and accountable for knowing how to, when to, what to, and what not to according to the Spirit of God that reigned in Him.
  • None of us as believers becoming sons of God should be trying to grow when it is in us to do so if we do it the Father’s way.
  • Our being responsible and accountable speaks of our spiritual maturity, as well as speaks of our growth and its measure of stature in becoming like Christ Jesus.
  • How possessed am I in allowing the Holy Ghost to govern and have His sovereignty authority in me in earth?
  • How responsible and accountable am I to Him in my behavior, attitude, and mannerism; in your gifts, time, and talents?
  • Am I responsible and accountable to the Spirit of God according to His Will and never mine?
  • Do I take the responsibility or do I blame God and others around me, to include the leader?
  • Are we still in the knowledge of good and evil where Adam fell and told God “that woman you gave me?”

Genesis 3:12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

  • Do you try to blame others for you inability to strive spiritually in the ways of the Lord?
  • Are you still finding fault in God’s plan in you because of your inability to fully comply with God’s plan without yours incorporated?
  • Have you sought the Lord in knowing what all is required of your stewardship in your ministry? That is responsibility!
  • What are you waiting on? God has already done it all for us through His Son Jesus, what more can He do to enable you in doing His Will in earth?
  • As a Father God has secured His role to all mankind.
  • As a becoming son you must be able to “agree” with the Spirit of God for His Will in your life in earth to be complete.
  • The responsibility is no longer on Jesus Christ; it’s on you once you accepted Salvation. You have to follow the plan of God now line upon line and precept upon precept.
  • Christ Jesus completed His assignment in earth and it has been given to all to “yield His fruit after His kind whose seed is in itself in you”.

1 John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

  • STOP looking to mankind for the way to God in Christ Jesus!

 

 

 

Amen

Compromising your morality for physical pleasure and selfish gratification

Compromising your morality for physical pleasure and selfish gratification

Apostle Tracey Robinson

 

  • God created us in His own image meaning we have His Spirit nature, which is the spirit man in us; and we have His moral character, which is the Soul of man. And we were made in His likeness meaning we have “the ability to function like Him”.
  • God is the manufacturer of the product of the species man.

 

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’s breath carries His Spirit nature and His moral character – all in His breath.
  • We are equipped with God’s traits of moral virtues such as courage, liberty, justice, honesty, compassion, temperance, and kindness.
  • The key moral virtue is wisdom. Wisdom only comes from God! James 1:5-7.
  • No one will ever know God’s product without the knowledge of knowing the Creator God!

 

Compromise means to accept standards that are lower than is desirable.

 

Morality

  • Morality deals with your behavior.
  • Morality is the belief that some behavior is right and acceptable and that other behavior is wrong.
  • Morality is a system of principles and values concerning people’s behavior, which is generally accepted by a society or by a particular group of people.
  • The morality of something is how right or acceptable it is.
  • Morality is conformity or a degree of conformity to conventional standards or moral conduct.
  • Morality is moral quality or character of rightness or wrongness, as of an action of being in accord with principles or standards of right conduct; ethics.

 

How does your morality deal with the cares of this world? Why?

  • According to the Word of God “care” is forbidden because God has divine care over His people, not all of them just those that are His.
  • This is how as a believer being transformed into a Son of God should care.

Philippians 4:6-7 6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

 

1 Peter 5:7-10

7 Casting all your care upon him; for He careth for you.

  • (No anxiety; no panic attacks about what may or may not happen today).
  • (Panic attacks are episodes of FEAR that will trigger severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause.)
  • (The author of panic attacks is the devil! 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.)
  • (All this is spiritual! Spiritual power, love, sanity, with peace).

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour:

  • (Be well-balanced, in control, sober of mind so you will know when the spirit of Satan and his emps are lurking around seeking what they can find in you that is not of God).

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brothren that are in the world.

  • (Instead of casting your cares, concerns, interests, or regards upon the world and its afflictions, know that you too have your own afflictions that you must be able to stand fast in and endure to accomplish the Will of God in your life).
  • (Don’t allow the world, the flesh, and the devil to cause your “mind” to lose focus in Christ Jesus. Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.)

10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

 

Hebrews 11: 25-27

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.

27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

 

How often do we make a moral compromise?

  • We face moral decisions when an action conflicts with our internal intention or conviction of right and wrong.
  • Every time we make a bias decision to agree with this or that from the affairs of the world, choose a side in your comments, suggestions, and opinions.
  • Bias means a particular tendency, trend, inclination, feeling, or opinion, especially one that is preconceived or unreasoned; unreasonable hostile feelings or opinions about a social group; prejudice.
  • How long will believers be caught between two opinions? 1 Kings 18:21

21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow Him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

  • This is a call to decision still today being called out to all believers, sinners, back sliders, transgressors, the wicked, etc.

 

Self-gratification

  • The act of pleasing or satisfying oneself, especially the gratifying of one’s own impulses, needs, or desires.
  • Gratification is the state of being gratified; great satisfaction; something that gratifies; source of pleasure or satisfaction; the act of gratifying.

 

Scriptures that reference self-gratification. Let’s read these!

 

Galatians 5:19-21, 16-26; 6:7-9

Colossians 3:5

Romans 13:13-14; 12:1

Ephesians 5:11

2 Corinthians 7:1 (I told you it is your responsibility)

2 Corinthians 5:10

 

What all does your spirit tells? What does it speak about you?

 

  • Your spirit will tell who you belong to and who you are serving
  • Your spirit man will produce only the fruit of the spirit in Christ, if that is who you are serving.
  • Your flesh will tell on you and reveal what is really going on in you, whether the leader says anything or not.
  • The flesh is the “actor” for the spirit man and its moral character (your soul).
  • It is hard to live in and out of the Will of your flesh, and then say God is with you because your flesh will tell on you.
  • It will speak loudly its works and the author of the works.
  • Your flesh is only animated because of the spirit and soul that lives within.

 

 

Amen

St Matthew 6:33

Apostle Tracey Robinson

 

St Matthew 6:33-34

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

 

  • The Church is you, not the local building that you assemble in.
  • The Church is the Body of Christ and the Church must be established in you if you are born again. You must be willing and obedient to allow the Word of God to perfect you, establish you, strengthen you, and to settle you and this requires suffering of the old nature to birth the new nature. (1 Peter 5:10)
  • Being born again is our “passport” to enter into a new country and to be governed by a new government.
  • Being born again is a part of the MEANS to an END.
  • Means here means an action or system by which a required result is to be brought forth. In other words, this is a part of the process to get you to the end result of a purpose (which is the reason for something is done or created).
  • Jesus only mentioned being born again one time and that was to Nicodemus in St John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (Verily means in truth; certainly; sincerely and truly).
  • The Church is the MEANS and the Kingdom is the ENDS.
  • The Kingdom was first, not the Church. St Matthew 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
  • The Kingdom of God is to have influence from the Kingdom of Heaven in earth by the Holy Spirit through the agency of mankind, the Church.
  • It was the fall of man that caused the departure of the Holy Spirit to leave from the spirit of man, therefore man lost the Kingdoms influence over the earth, along with dominion.
  • Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God are different dimensions of kingdoms.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven is the domain of Heaven where the King, which is God Himself, rules there and He reigns. And nobody is going where God lives and reigns!
  • In His domain He exercises power and authority over the territories that are under the influence and authority of His Will.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven is where God has “direct influence, control, and ruler ship”.
  • Whenever we see the Kingdom of Heaven mentioned by Jesus or Paul it is referring to the “place where God is ruler and King over that territory”.
  • Heaven refers to a place.
  • Back to the scripture! The Kingdom of God wants to inhabit your territory by way of the Holy Spirit to use your body as His Transporter and Temple to dwell in the earth and declare His influence wherever your footsteps tread.
  • This is God’s overall claim right here!

 

God’s claim is first!

 

What is God’s claim?

  • God’s claim is His goal!
  • God’s goal is His purpose! His original plan for creating man and his existence in earth.
  • His purpose is to influence and rule through the Church through His Son Jesus, and to restore back to man his Heavenly citizenship through the Holy Spirit and to establish His Kingdom on earth in their presence in this time. In other words, the time that we are in!
  • God’s claim is that the Kingdom of God in us will represent His Kingdom in the earth, and He will dominate every kingdom that has made itself a kingdom in the earth.
  • God’s purpose is to be God through His agency, the Church to call men back to their original source.
  • The Kingdom’s claim is to be in earth to influence the world by the Holy Spirit through the spirit man. This is why Jesus came to restore and take back the dominion originally given to man with the influence of the Kingdom of God in total control.
  • In order to do this we must become His Sons to preach and teach the Kingdom just as His Son Jesus did.
  • St Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
  • When we preach Kingdom, the Kingdom comes in earth so as it is in Heaven and heal all manner of sicknesses and diseases.
  • Jesus always preached and taught Kingdom and signs and wonders of the Kingdom always followed the message.

 

What is the Kingdom of God?

  • The Kingdom of God is any domain where the ruler ship influence and authority of God is in effect.
  • The Kingdom of God means that God’s Kingdom is dominating an area.
  • This is what a miracle really is! It is when the Kingdom of God dominates the environment, the area.
  • Everyone gets healed then because of the presence of the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

 

Does the earth have the influence and authority of God in effect?

  • The Holy Spirit is God’s connection between Heaven and earth. You do the math and answer that question.
  • But without the Holy Spirit in His influence and authority we have no connection here between Heaven and earth.

 

What is the influence and authority in the earth?

  • The world, the flesh, and the devil are the influence and authority in the earth realm through ungodly men and women.
  • With the influence and authority of the Holy Spirit in you we then have a duty to the weak and to bear one another’s burdens. This is not for flesh and blood, but for all that is influenced by the Spirit of God that works in you.
  • Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
  • This is a responsibility of the Church!

 

What is His righteousness?

  • Righteousness means the quality of being morally right or justifiable.
  • Being in right standing with God.
  • His righteousness is His way of doing and being right, simply put!

 

What is the Church?

  • St Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
  • The Church is built upon the statement made by Peter, not upon Peter but upon the statement he made in St Matthew 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
  • Jesus the Christ established the Church upon the faith and declared and decreed that the gates of hell (hades) shall not prevail against it.
  • Death and the grave cannot destroy the Church.
  • Death and the grave cannot kill the citizens of the Kingdom of God. This is why we must die in Christ so that we will live again!
  • The Church is not in trouble; she has not lost her way; she is not confused; and the enemy has not crept in and changed her focus and way from God’s purpose.
  • As a matter of fact the Church is growing! Persecution scatters the Word causing the Kingdom of God to take His dominion in earth.
  • The Church is the representation of the Kingdom in earth with its influence and authority being governed by the Kingdom of Heaven where God is in total ruler ship.
  • The word Jesus used for Church was “Ekklesia” from the Hebrew word meaning “called out ones”
  • St Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
  • There are a whole lot of people in these local assembly’s, but God has called out only a few.
  • The group that is called out is called Ekklesia. If you are individually or corporately a representative, organization, organism, or an agency of the Church then you are a called out one.
  • The Church is a chosen, appointed, and called out people.
  • The Church is a living organism of mankind.
  • The Church is the legal agency of God in earth. God enables the authority and the Church as an agency that serves to others, like an insurance agency that sells insurance.
  • Only the Church serves assurance!
  • The Church is the agency for the government of God through which the Holy Spirit works through the spirit man to service the world for God.
  • So when the world wants to do business with God they don’t go directly to God, but they go to His agency.

 

  • Please not this: If the Church leaves the earth, then earth has lost Heavens influence, not denominations, not tradition & religion, but the Church.

 

Care is forbidden here!

  • Pleasure when we take charge of our environment, in charge of our future, in charge of our destiny. These things please God!
  • God is pleased when we are not under our circumstances.

 

 

Amen

God says, “I have given you a Will to do!” God gave us the power of Will

God says, “I have given you a Will to do!” God gave us the power of Will
Apostle Tracey Robinson. 2020 All Rights Reserved
 

Genesis 1:26-27

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them.

 

Image means nature, characteristics, essence of God. We all a made up of a piece of God’s His spiritual nature, moral character, and qualities.

Likeness means to function like Him! And how does God function? By a substance called faith.

You see now why He can say, “Without faith it is impossible to please Me”

 

  • The power of Will is the ability of the Will to choose God or Satan.
  • St Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
  • Mammon is wealth regarded as an evil influence or false object of worship and devotion.
  • This verse of scripture leaves not room for a middle decision of the Will, no space for gray areas. You cannot straddle your choice indecisively by being half-hearted, double-minded, worldly today, and righteous tomorrow.
  • Therefore there is nothing in earth as powerful as your “Human Will”. I’m not talking about being more powerful than the Holy Ghost. We are talking about the Will without the Holy Spirit’s penetration in the spirit of man.
  • The human Will is the one thing that the Spirit of God will not control!
  • Why? Because the nature of your Will implies “self-control”.
  • Self-control is having the ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior, especially in difficult situations.

 

  • Nature is the basic or inherent features of something, especially as seen as characteristics of it, i.e. essence, character, identity, etc.
  • Character is the mental or moral qualities distinctive of an individual’s (personality, disposition, temperament, temper, etc.)

 

  • God gave us all the power of Will making us the owner of our acts of choice, the desires we accept, and to be responsible for them. In other words, accountability comes with decision-making.
  • Responsibility and accountability are two things that the believers don’t want to take. This is why they expect God to do everything!
  • The most dangerous gift God ever gave man was the power of Will.
  • The power of Will is the most precious gift God ever gave to the spirit man.
  • It is precious because God gave us the same power that He possesses – the power of Will.
  • The human Will is also dangerous because it has the ability to choose against God and God will not come against it.
  • Free human willis the idea that we are able to have choice in how we act and that we are free to choose our behavior, in other words we are self-determined. For example, people can make a free choice as to whether to commit a crime or not.
  • The crucial management of the Human Will is decision-making, a matter in which reason and Will coincide, but feelings and emotions also have their roles, as does the moral character of the decisions made.
  • Your character is shaped by traits or stable moral dispositions traditionally known as virtues, whether they are good or evil.

External freedom without the Will of God influencing your Will, but the being influenced by the 5-senses of the flesh (the body realm).

  • Absence of constrains is never, or hardly ever, absolute.
  • Our freedom is a “situated freedom,” within a certain context, laden with constraints and conditioning factors.
  • According to sound logic, absolute freedom is impossible for human beings, as it is for any limited being. However, our rationality can overcome many natural or situational limitations.
  • Freedom does not refer only to “human action” in the sense that we are free as long as we are not physically or mentally constrained. This is “external freedom.”

 

  • Externally, in the earth the behavior of man’s knowledge of good and evil influences the systems of this world often without morals and values of right.
  • The knowledge of good and evil influences the opinions, comments, and suggestions of mankind in his decision-making process.
  • Humans are motivated to do things because they will get some benefits from the things they do. Is this your reason for entering into Salvation?

 

Internal freedom is spiritual liberty given when the Will of God is influencing your Will by His Spirit to become Sons.

 

Romans 8:14-16

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

 

  • Influence means the capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something, or the effects itself.
  • The Will of God operating from within is God’s planned concept of His purpose for all mankind.

 

Isaiah 55:8-11

8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

 

  • God intends to use the Will of man to fulfill His Will in earth which will allow the Kingdom of God to reign in earth so as it is in Heaven.
  • The only problem with this is that your Will gives you the power to choose God or reject God. And He is the one who gave you the Will!

 

  • Your Will controls the destiny you choose, whereas internally your Will becomes God’s agency of the Kingdom of God administratively.
  • When “the Kingdom of God is at hand” (that is in you and through you) God has established Kingdom on earth and He wants it to be administrated through the human Will, but the only problem is that your Will is yours to do as you please.
  • Remember it is a gift!

 

Your soul is God’s media in the earth

  • The soul is God’s media for Kingdom ruler ship in earth.
  • Media means “to interpret”. God wants to rule through the soul and spirit of man to interpret the Kingdom of God and its Way in earth.
  • Interpreter is a person who interprets, especially one who translates speech orally.
  • We become God’s mouthpiece from the Kingdom of Heaven.
  • God wants to rule the world through your soul!
  • This is why the scripture says in 3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
  • Prosperity, health, and spiritual growth are a promise when your soul is aligned with the Spirit of the Word of God.
  • If you are not prospering in your soul then you are really poor in every other area and your temporal stuff does not count as a sign of a prospering soul.
  • The Kingdom of God is the Kingdom of God of the heart and soul of man.
  • If the Kingdom doesn’t get in your soul, then it can’t get into the earth to be at hand.
  • If the Kingdom doesn’t get in your heart you will never see the ruler ship of God.
  • Ruler ship begins in the heart and until it gets there, there will be NO KINGDOM MANIFESTATION of it in the earth.

 

The Kingdom of darkness is a part of the soul also where God is battling against Satan for your soul.

 

Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

 

  • You won’t do or live the Kingdom of God in earth with your flesh being in control 90%, 55%, or 100% of the time.
  • God and Satan are not after your body even though it is needful to live in the earth. IT IS YOUR SOUL THEY ARE AFTER!
  • Simply because whoever controls your soul controls YOU!
  • So you got two Kingdoms and they are both after your soul.

 

  • We keep calling on the Lord God to do this and that! We keep trying to send Him here and there to do what we “think” we have the power and authority to do! BUT God is saying, “I have given you a Will to do”!
  • Why are you calling on the Lord God to do?

 

 

Amen
