St Luke 9:57-62

57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

  • People got every excuse and all kinds of excuses as to why they cannot serve the Lord in Spirit and in Truth.
  • People got every excuse and all kinds of excuses as to why they cannot serve the Lord God only according to His Word exemplified through His Son Jesus.
  • When the call to salvation comes through the “spiritual attraction” of the Lord God through His Son Jesus and we were or are drawn to Him who had reconciled us back to Himself by Jesus the Christ, we come up with many excuses as to why we are not ready to serve or cannot serve at this time.
  • Reconcile means to restore relations between; cause to coexist in harmony; make or show to be compatible.

2 Corinthians 5:18-21

18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  • When salvation calls it calls you to serve the Lord and others through the ministry of reconciliation given to us as new creatures, born again in Christ Jesus.
  • The ministry of reconciliation is the same ministry of Jesus the Christ that received us into His favor bringing us unto harmony with Him.
  • This ministry of reconciliation is given to us so that by our word and deed we might aim at others to bring them into harmony also with the Lord God.
  • This ministry is given to all who enter into salvation by confession of the mouth and believing in your heart. Romans 10:9-10
  • The ministry of reconciliation is a soul winner’s ministry! It is a ministry we all have been given by Jesus to turn hearts toward God and back to God which is crucial and critical.
  • Jesus paid the price for our reconciliation because God so loved the world (St John 3:16), therefore we must give this same message of reconciliation in love to others, as well as our lives need to reflect the message of reconciliation.
  • God uses us through this ministry to tell the world about Him through His Son Jesus and how they too need to be reconciled back to God.
  • Many followers get tested here at the very beginning of their salvation and fail!
  • Then it becomes a form of godliness with a selfish relationship with motive.

 

  • The luxury of your flesh will always put a stumbling block in front of you from your past with its lusts, practices, habits, and desires to cause you to fail as a follower being tested.
  • The lavish desires of your flesh to live as you supposed God would have you to live void of His Will and righteousness.
  • In this case we would do exactly as the serpent allowed Satan access to his body so he could do his business (damage preferably) in earth against God.
  • Think about it now, so when we allow Satan to access the Will of your flesh again then we/you are no different than the serpent!
  • We blame so much and everything on Adam and Eve, but forgetting the serpent that the Spirit of Satan enticed him first in order to do his business through him against God. Remember the serpent got cursed too!
  • Satan’s domain is your flesh if you give him access to it to do his business in earth that is against God.
  • Satan’s business in the earth is and will always be against God. The quicker we apply this knowledge in understanding we will then be able to move forward in Christ and grow in the things of God.
  • Our Will is powerful! We have the power to choose God or the devil to do business through us through the use of our body.
  • It is your choice!
  • This is an area where many excuses appear and remain effective in followers, especially when being tested.
  • BUT we have the power of our Will to shut Satan’s kingdom and its business in our flesh down; CLOSED for renovation of the Spirit of God; UNDER new management!

 

  • All followers will be tested by the Spirit of the Word of God or by the temptations of the spirit of Satan (the devil), with both competing to do business of righteousness or unrighteousness in the earth realm.
  • We as followers try to make it seem like God’s word today is not the same yesterday and forever. His Word does not change from generation to generation!
  • Followers will be tested by the Spirit of God or tempted by the spirit of Satan to see if your confession is made whole and solid in you.
  • Spiritual hindrances are supposed to come upon and after you. Why? Because you say you are a follower of Christ Jesus.
  • If your heart is half way with God and the other half in still entangled with the cares of this world, the bondage of your soul, and the poverty of your spirit, you will fail when tested by the Word of God, because you still belong to Satan’s kingdom.
  • Satan has a kingdom that is of the flesh and its works. Galatians 5:19-21
  • God’s Kingdom is within you. St Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, Lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
  • God’s Kingdom is not meat and drink, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Romans 14:17
  • Don’t get the Kingdoms mixed up like as you do the Church or the Body of Christ!
  • There are no detours! There are no short cuts! There is no microwave version of salvation! You must come in at the door you are being called through.

St John 10:1-2 Jesus said it this way,

1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

 

  • What is the sheepfold? A sheepfold is a sheep pen.
  • The door is Jesus.

 

A follower is an adherent or devotee of a particular person, cause, or activity.

A disciple is a follower or student of a teacher, leader, or philosopher.

 

Evaluate your beginning.

Are you a follower or a disciple?

 

 

 

Amen

The power of your faith elevates you into Kingdom citizenship – Part II The power of Kingdom faith The Spirit of faith

The power of your faith elevates you into Kingdom citizenship – Part II

The power of Kingdom faith – The Spirit of faith (Apostle Tracey Robinson)

 

  • We started out last Wednesday teaching on “The life of Kingdom citizenship is proving your faith”. Since faith is so powerful and secures you as a Kingdom citizen in the Kingdom of Heaven we want to teach a little more on your life in the earth realm as a Kingdom citizen.
  • We come to realize that the spirit of faith is the most important power we can possess, along with the Will of the spirit man.
  • Our Will controls our destiny in the earth realm and is to be used as God’s agency of His Kingdom’s administration.
  • Our Will is precious to God but is the most dangerous gift God gave to the spirit man. He gave us the same power that He possesses – the power of a Will.
  • God intended to use the Will of the spirit man to fulfill His Will in the earth. So He wants us to use our Will for His Will.
  • Yes, we have the gift of the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost) but He has to possess us.
  • He is the most important person in the earth realm today and forever, and it takes faith to believe in the God of His Spiritual gifts to the spirit man.
  • The in depth dwelling of the Spirit of God consummating your spirit will determine His possession in and over you.

 

  • Citizens of the Kingdom of God only operate in the substance called FAITH.

Hebrews 11:1 NOW faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

  • Faith is the functioning nature of God; and being made in Our image, “after Our likeness”. Genesis 1:26
  • Faith is tested to prove its existence in you.

 

  • Don’t confuse faith, love, wisdom, etc. with common sense:

Common sense does not employ faith.

Common sense does not operate in the Kingdom of God.

Common sense uses “the senses perception”, memories, and imagination in order to reach or make many types of judgments.

Common sense sees things as they are and do things as they ought to be done through the senses.

Common sense is practical judgment concerning every day matters, not spiritual matters.

Common sense is a basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge using the senses that is the 5-senses of the flesh; that is shared by all people. It’s a common thing to do!

 

  • Faith operates from the belief of a hope desired in. If your hope desired in is not the Will of God, faith will not
  • Faith is charged with and by the Spirit of the Word of God which is filled with joy, protection, confidence, intensified, and makes you flexible in all you do.

 

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

  • Salvation confessed as stated in Romans 10:9-10 with the mouth the Lord Jesus, and believes in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you are saved. For with the heart of the spirit man, man believes in righteousness and with the mouth confession is made to Salvation.
  • There must be a spiritual attraction that will metamorphically cause you to confess out of your mouth that you believe that this is what God has done through the gift of Salvation through the completed work of His Son Jesus Christ.
  • Unto means “to” or “until”.
  • Spiritual attraction is where Jesus said, No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him; and I will raise him up at the last day. St John 6:44.
  • St John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
  • Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, St Matthew 12:34.
  • Keeping our hearts with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life, Proverbs 4:23.

 

  • Bearing Christlikeness is what enables you as a citizen to know and do what the Word says according to Kingdom style in the earth realm. This is truly a spiritual life as a citizen in earth!
  • Beware! The spirit of this world tries to duplicate the Kingdom of God in the earth by duplicating the Kingdom’s Body of Christ.
  • The flesh is corrupt and deceptive! It tries to duplicate the ways of God as it capitalizes off the Word’s instructions.

1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

  • The true spiritual body of Christ craves earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven. 2 Corinthians 5:2.

Read 2 Corinthians 5:1-7.

  • How do you know if you are a Kingdom citizen?
  • Is the Kingdom that you are a citizen in, is it the Kingdom of Light or the kingdom of darkness?
  • How do you know if you are in the Body of Christ and not the so-called body?
  • Change is required to become a citizen of the Kingdom of God.
  • Hearing brings in transformational change.
  • Faith must produce fruit!
  • Your faith should be in God no matter what!

Isaiah 2:22 KJV Amplified Cease to trust in [weak, frail, and dying] man, whose breath is in his nostrils [for so short a time]; in what sense can he be counted as having intrinsic worth?

  • Intrinsic means relating to the essential nature of a thing; belonging naturally; essential.

Psalm 146:3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

 

Your faith is only as secure as to what it is in

  • Nothing works in the Kingdom of God without faith.
  • The currency of the Kingdom of God is faith.
  • You cannot do business in the Kingdom without faith.
  • You must have faith to make an exchange for anything in the Kingdom of God.
  • Faith in your money in the earth is only as strong as the institution you put it in. If they collapse you are without, but the Kingdom of God will never collapse. So your natural money is only as valuable as what’s backing the bank that it is.
  • Your faith is only as secure as to what it is in and to what is backing it.

St Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

  • Faith must be enjoined with the Kingdom of God and its laws, precepts, principles, etc.
  • Enjoined means to prescribe a course of action with authority or emphasis.
  • Tradition and religion has built on a gospel that believes in what God does, when in fact we need to build on a foundation of who God is.

 

Unshakeable Kingdom

  • Test, trials, tribulations are all designed to strengthen and purify the citizens of the Kingdom of God.
  • This is the real issue of tests!
  • Test and trials don’t come to destroy you, but to stripe you and to prove you in the faith that operates in the Kingdom of God because of the confession you made from your heart.
  • Tests and trials purify your faith.
  • Purify means to remove contaminants from; to make ceremonially clean; to extract something from.
  • Can your faith be shaken in Christ?

 

Hebrews 12:26-29

26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be removed, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

29 For our God is a consuming fire.

 

  • Can your foundations materials be shaken? If so, then it is shakable.
  • If it is a created thing don’t trust in it because you can lose it.
  • What are created things? Created things are cars, houses, land, money, clothes, denominations, etc.
  • Trusting in your blessings that even God gives can be shaken, so that you will put your faith in that which cannot be shaken.
  • Only God and His Kingdom cannot be shaken. God will allow the shaking so we will put all our trust in Him.
  • We are receiving a Kingdom by faith that cannot be shaken.
  • We are receiving a new government, a new culture, with a Kingdom language, a lifestyle not like the world, but as God’s citizen, an entire society that cannot be shaken.
  • God wants an entire people, a culture that cannot be shaken by the things of this world.
  • Are you really apart of the Kingdom of God?
  • Once you began to live in the Kingdom of God there will be not storms.
  • REMEMBER the issue is not the test; it is what you are really built on that is being tested; what is your faith in? And how are you going to handle the test?
  • The only thing we as citizens are guaranteed in the House you’ve built is the foundation.
  • The faith of a House is in the foundation.
  • So if your foundation has cracks, leaks, or is unstable then your whole house will lack in value and will become useless.
  • Just as in the natural when a foundation of a building is found with a crack or other problems the government will have to condemn that building.
  • Kingdom faith is not afraid or fears anything!
  • God wants your faith to not fail no matter what you face.
  • Your faith is the ONLY thing that will threaten the devil so that he will get tired of trying to tempt you and work on you, and MUST confess to God that he is tired of trying to cause you to fail.
  • PUT your faith back in God!
  • TAKE it away from everything else that can be shaken!
  • Your faith is not in what you have and don’t have.
  • Your faith does not depend on what happens and what does not happen.
  • FAITH must be worked by you, not faith working for you.
  • REMEMBER the Heroes of faith throughout the Bible, i.e. David, Moses, Abraham, Job, etc.
  • You must stay steady in faith! It don’t matter what the devil says or does respond with “I still believe” “I’m not leaving God for He is my trust”.
  • Kingdom faith and its power are unconditional!

 

Amen

The Ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Apostle Tracey Robinson)

 

Have you ever wondered why I, as the leader of this House never preach, teach, or minister on the “feelings”, your thoughts, comments, suggestions, or opinions?

 

Why I never preach, teach, or minister on your current situation, circumstances, or issues that are going on such as “how am I going to make it? “I need money for this or that, because I’m short”?

 

  • The Word of God declares that your Heavenly Father knows what your need is before you ask, whereas you have no need to ask.
  • St Matthew 6:8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask Him.
  • Which leads me to ask the question, do you know who your Father is?

 

What we as Christian believers, leaders, children of God, Sons of God must realize is that your current natural need is not the real issue or need?

Your current need is really a spiritual need that will totally satisfy your natural need that is if you would take heed to the Word of the Lord spoken.

What we all need is spiritual growth, not natural growth or fulfillment, but to seek you first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. St Matthew 6:33

  • One must stop to ask self, is God more concerned about Himself than me? Yes! For God’s pleasure in you is His Glory to be seen in you in the earth realm, even so to the point that the angels would look on you and wonder why is it that God is so mindful of man? Psalm 8:4
  • Tradition and religion messed up the spirit man to only want the means of God and not give Him the ends; tradition and religion messed up the spirit man by being more concerned about “how is God going to bless me” more so than How can I bless God?
  • Tradition and religion messed up the spirit man by penetrating his spirit with a falseness of and about God till man began to praise and worship the creation of God instead of the Creator.
  • So is God more concerned about Himself than me? Yes! Because He created us for His pleasure, not Him for our pleasure.
  • And yes, He is concerned about what you’re going through to the point of you “trying” to do His Will in you, but He wants a total surrendered Will to perform His Will that is destined in you.

 

We allow the things that we see in the natural to determine our overall daily bread supplied. Whereas, the Word of God teaches that what appears to be is not what really is, because the things that we see are temporal.

  • 2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
  • 1 John 3:2-3 2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see his as he is.

3 And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.

 

  • This is your Christlikeness in being in the earth realm, not when you die but before death that last enemy comes. This is Kingdom citizenship; Kingdom knowledge!

 

Have you ever wondered why I don’t preach, teach, or minister on the stories of the Bible and then make fleshly jokes about them for us?

  • God didn’t call this ministry into being to humor you in the flesh, but to use it to speak to your Soul in Spirit and in Truth.
  • The calling of this ministry is of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and is called to minister to your Soul and Spirit, not your flesh.
  • In this House your flesh MUST die in order to live, breathe, and have your being in Christ Jesus in earth.
  • Acts 17:28 For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring.
  • Offspring is a person’s child or children.

 

Do you wonder why God didn’t give this ministry “big swelling words” to impress you with or to swell your ego with and cause you to be intellectually smart? Why we don’t tickle your intellect in hopes to loosen your grip on your pocket books and wallets?

  • 1 Corinthians 2:1-8

1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world, unto our glory:

8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

 

  • This is Kingdom teaching, preaching, ministering with demonstration of the power and authority of the Holy Ghost within the House, as well as dwelling in me.
  • The Gospel is simple!
  • Simple meaning easily understood or done; presenting no difficulty.

 

The assignment here at Personal Touch Int’l Ministry is the ministry of Jesus Christ, which is the Kingdom of God.

  • The Kingdom of Heaven has a government, where God is the King.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven has a law book, a Constitution, known to us in earth as the Bible.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven has its own economy
  • The Kingdom of Heaven has its own social system
  • The Kingdom of Heaven has its own currency system call FAITH.
  • We are to live according to the Kingdom of God in the earth realm.

 

The Kingdom of God has declared Personal Touch Int’l Ministry as a leadership ministry that has gone through the test of Faith to glorify God in earth, so as it is in Heaven.

And when we teach, preach, or minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a leader of the Kingdom of God we must be able to exemplify the stories and or the Word of God in our lives in earth. We have to be able to demonstrate the Word of God in Spirit and in Truth in such a time as this.

This ministry’s only concern, desire, and destiny is to impact God’s work and His faith in Him, not just His works in; but to demonstrate in power and authority the strong influence and effect of the power of Salvation and its reconciling contact in power back to the Kingdom of God.

      The test in your lives that have been set up for your destiny in Him to see Him and to hear Him say “well done” is greater than any earthly possession. This life in Him is priceless!

 

Amen

The life of Kingdom citizenship is proving your faith

The life of Kingdom citizenship is proving your faith 

The power of your faith elevates you into Kingdom living
Apostle Tracey Robinson

 

  • We’ve heard it from Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please God!
  • We’ve heard that in order to get in the presence of God you must believe by faith!
  • We’ve heard that if Jesus went through test so will I!
  • But did you know that the life of Kingdom citizenship is the proving of your faith?
  • Did you know that faith requires test?
  • Tradition and religion teaches and practice that testing is more demonic than the system of faith.
  • Tradition and religion teaches and practices that if God did it for you, He will do it for me. Not a true statement and it has no word of God to back it up!
  • Tradition and religion teaches and practices that I have what I say, and to speak those things that are not as though they maybe. Yes, that is true, but not without faith!
  • FAITH is the most powerful thing you as a new creature can possess! When you lose your faith you have lost.
  • FAITH speaks saying, it doesn’t matter what happens “I still believe” in what God is destined to do in you.
  • Testing is not from demons, a temptation is!
  • Testing proves the value and the worth of your faith as a citizen.
  • You must be able to go through the test and come out on the other end.
  • Your faith is as strong as the test it survives!
  • God knows your level of faith by the test He allowed you to face that you survived!

 

The value of faith

  1. Faith is the most important power we possess is our faith. When you lose hope you lose faith.
  2. Faith is the ONLY thing that threatens the devil. As long as your faith is the devil cannot succeed.
  3. Faith as a new creature is your ONLY protection.
  4. Faith is your belief and your conviction that creates your confidence in life as a Kingdom citizen.
  5. You can only have confidence if you possess faith!
  6. When you lose faith you cannot be confident! In that you will waiver, become questioning, weak, and all the forces of earth and Hell will run over you to destroy your life.
  7. When you lose your belief and conviction there is no reason to try and live as a new creature.
  8. Faith is manifested by the test it encounters!
  9. How do you know if you have faith? There has to be a test! This is the only way faith can be manifested! It’s through testing!
  10. Your faith is as strong as the test it survives! This is how you will know the level of your faith by the test God allowed you to face that you survived.
  11. Testing your faith is God’s prerequisite for trusting you. (Prerequisite a requirement necessary before something)
  12. God will never trust what He didn’t test.
  13. If you call tests negative you will never be trusted by God. Negative means a word or statement that expresses denial, disagreement, or refusal.
  14. How you handle being tested, pressured, attacked, or challenged is God’s laboratory of experiment to be able to trust you?
  15. Jesus Christ Himself is the ultimate example!
  16. If you want God to use you like He used Jesus He is going to take you to your wilderness and lead you through your wilderness.
  17. That is why the most dangerous prayer to pray is “Lord use me”

 

 

What qualifies us to be heard by God?

  • Faith qualifies us to be heard by God.
  • When we pray God takes His precious time about responding because it is not the answer to prayer, or the prayer you prayed, but He is interested in are you still going to have confidence in waiting on Him to respond. REMEMBER: Faith is your belief and your conviction that creates your confidence in the King of the Kingdom as a citizen.
  • Qualify means to be entitled to a particular benefit or privilege by fulfilling a necessary condition.
  • You must be qualified to be heard by God! Did you meet the Kingdom’s principles?
  • You must be qualified to be trusted by God! Has God told you that He can trust you?
  • Your faith is as strong as the test it survived! Did you survive your test?

 

What is the object of your faith?

  • Object defined in this lesson as a person or thing to which a specified action or feeling is directed.
  • Objects of faith determine the strength of your faith.
  • Source defined in this lesson as a place, person, or thing from which something comes or can be obtained.
  • The source of your faith determines the quality of your faith.
  • If your faith fails under a little stress or failure; a little surprise or a little challenge, or something that has happened, then where did you get your faith from?
  • What is the source of your faith?
  • Where did it come from? Or who did it come from?
  • When your faith is in another source, we become disappointed in people because our faith lies in them. They are and have become our source. So your faith is only as good as they are or were at the time!
  • When they changed your faith changed in them. So where did you get your faith from, i.e. people, the situation you’re in, spouse, children, Pastor, friends, etc.

 

 

 

  • The object of your faith determines your quantity or the size of your faith.
  • How much faith do you have?
  • How big is your faith? This depends on the object of your faith, what you have your faith in?
  • Your faith is as big as the God you have it in.

Promise Fulfilled

Promise Fulfilled

Apostle Tracey Robinson

 

  • Trying to get God to fulfill a promise that you have not contributed to is the way of the flesh.
  • Adam was an animated spirit being because he had the mind of God.
  • He had the Spirit of God with all the essence of God, His Image, after His Likeness. Genesis 1:26-27.
  • So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him. And because of that Adam didn’t have to try to get into the presence of God, he stayed in His Presence. Adam didn’t have to present to God praise and worship; get in the spirit; sing songs; pray, etc. to get into His Presence because he was created like God as a spirit man.
  • Adam was in sync with Heaven by location, disposition, and order. (Garden means order).
  • Our belief system called religion is made up of tradition and religion, ceremonial rituals, dead history that is made up of self. It’s full of selfish pride (it’s all about me), self-centered, self-credit (proclaiming that you yourself have brought you this far), self-worth, self-praise (you take credit for all), self-worship (this is what made Lucifer fall in his heart), and as people say today self-love.
  • Self-love is the appreciation of one’s own worth or virtue; observing yourself as being your own best friend.
  • Jesus understood worship! He demonstrated worship!
  • Praise is a command given to everything that has breath.
  • Fellowship is praise because it keeps the Lord in our midst lifted up.
  • In your going through you too will began to know worship, as the Lord God said to me on the track back in April 2019 “it had to be this way!” This was for me in order to have more worship material to acknowledge TOTAL DEPENDENCY on God.
  • When someone in your life wants to compete with God in your life they are asking to become an idol in your life to replace, alter, or make God second to none in your heart.
  • We only honor God for what we can get out of Him. We don’t provide or submit no contributions toward the Word of God to be fulfilled by the Word in our life for God to provide His part in promise.
  • Psalm 116:12 What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me?
  • What do I owe God? Why do I owe God anything? How can I pay the price of His asking?
  • We always want God to fulfill His Promise, but never fulfill the obligation or duty to the promise that we have.
  • 1 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
  • We keep our hands extended, begging, with a mouth full of memorized, rehearsed Word, but with nothing in our hearts to stimulate or arouse God to open the windows of Heaven and begin pour.
  • What’s in the heart is only what God can work with?
  • Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as to one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
  • If your heart has no foundation in the Word of God in it that will “arouse” the Spirit of God in Heaven and in you to move God toward His promise, what do you expect God to do with your Cain offering?
  • The promise is obtained through faith.
  • Hebrews 11:33-39 tells us how the heroes of faith suffered faithfully to obtain a good report through faith received not the promise.
  • You have a one-sided relationship with God! I know God but that you know about God is selfish and one-sided.
  • God knows my heart and I want to continue doing what I do as I reject and accept what I Will of His Will and Way.
  • Paul talked about an inward struggle that we all have in the flesh with sinful desires.
  • Romans 7:14-21, this is written to the Saints, not the sinner! We try to give the Word of God to sinners, unsaved, lukewarm family members when the Word is for you first.

14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. I give permission to myself and tell myself this is good.

17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Amazing the good of the Word that you do know, but can’t apply it or do it because it is not rooted in your heart.

20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

 

  • Does your flesh have you in spiritual bondage? Do you know if it does?
  • Temptation will always be around you and follow with you; trouble will always follow you, and you choose to sin because of failure to obey the Will of God’s Word but the Will of your flesh and its desires, because there is no depth of the Word in your heart.
  • When we continue to fail in obeying God’s Way it then becomes a “form of godliness”. You have convinced yourself that what feels good to you God is accepting it because He has not killed you, or nothing bad has happened to you.
  • Yes it is!! Check your inwardness! Check your spirit and its progress! Check and see if you have acquired a familiar spirit that has even penetrated your spirit and fooled you to believe that it is God’s Spirit.
  • Death takes place spiritually first, then manifest itself outwardly!
  • God is a Spirit,
  • St John 4:24 says God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
  • I did not make this up when you hear me keep saying in Spirit and in Truth! This is a command from God!
  • Adam was a spirit being encased in a body; animated by the Spirit of God to do the Will of God.
  • Galatians 3:1-4, the return to legalism condemned.
  • Legalism is dependence on moral law rather than on personal religious faith.
  • Moral is concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior and the goodness and badness of human character; a person’s standards of behavior or beliefs concerning what is and is not acceptable for them to do.
  • Morally good means all I want to do is just make it in by obeying a few of God’s commands.
  • Morally good says I don’t bother nobody; I try to treat everybody as they treat me.
  • Morally good meaning I pick and choose what is good and acceptable for me in the Will of God’s righteousness, because God knows my heart.

1 O FOOLISH Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?

2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

3 Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?

4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? If it be yet in vain.

 

  • Some of us are straddling the fence believing this side and some of that side in hopes that you can get it right before your time is up.
  • Adam was a created spirit being encased in a body!
  • You were reborn again, received a rebirth in the Spirit of God through the works of His Son Jesus Christ, but yet you are still dead in spirit. You didn’t come alive? Are you spiritually still born?
  • We have bewitched ourselves, not the devil!
  • But someone has enchanted and delighted you in your spirit by casting a spell over you that has blinded you to the Will of God in your life. Who did that to you?
  • So you’ve taken on a form of godliness, with a spirit of fear and compromise in a comfort zone.
  • Wow! What a way to live and call it righteousness?
  • God’s Spirit in the Word comes to cleanse us anew.
  • His power cleanses us; His power in Word transform us;
  • His power will cause us to reverence Him in Spirit and in Truth and not just sit around looking lost.
  • God don’t regenerate His to sit and look like a deer looking into the headlights, standing still staring when His Word is being heard, accepted, and rooted in the heart with deep depths.
  • Salvation is not a fairy tale!
  • Living as a Kingdom citizen in the earth being prepared to live in Heavens eternity is not a fairy tale, it’s not a dream.
  • Your flesh will torment you and yes that is the devil’s presence, because the flesh is his domain.
  • You choose to live there then he is your superior!
  • When you find comfort in your Will your flesh is supposed to beat you down. Its job is to kill, steal, and destroy you spiritually. This is your Will not the Will of another!
  • Your flesh works for Satan!
  • The flesh will beat you down until you submit to its ways lusted and desired.
  • But God is faithful to the point that He will not allow Satan to torment or beat you down before you submit to the cleaning of the Word.
  • 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
  • As a new convert, believer or Christian or Saint you must be cleansed by the Word of God before you become any match for Satan or his demons.
  • We like to believe that everything is the devil; we like to believe that every fault of man is the devil, but it’s not. It is your Will’s submission to God or Satan!
  • Because man pretends to be too weak to surrender to all desires and independence to God, God will permit your flesh to subdue you till you choose to surrender your Will to either His or Satan’s.
  • This is your chosen captivity! You choose your captivity through the “permissive Will”, not God! God jus permit it!
  • God’s mercy is great, but it is only as great as you will allow it to be toward you.
  • We need to stop thinking that God “feels sorry” for the state that man chooses to be in because He does not.
  • There is no compromise in the Lord God.
  • There is no weakness in Him.
  • There is no shadow of turning to the Will of man. God is strong and mighty in influence through His Word and to those that will perceive His Word in their heart.
  • We are weak because we choose to be weak!
  • We lack because we choose not to ask God and if we ask we don’t wait on His Will to perform.
  • We then choose to settle for less than our worth and desire because we want God to do His part and we do nothing to fulfill our part to the promise.
  • Fear is a tactic of Satan, used by his demons.
  • Fear is a stronghold of Satan.
  • His fear comes with control.
  • Control is the evidence of proof that fear is operating in you.
  • God is faith. God functions by faith.
  • Fear is an element, a stronghold of Satan. Why, Because Satan fears God and His Holiness. Satan knows that he is no match for God.
  • But if he can come between God and man with fear this is his strategy against the soul of man. Satan deceives the soul of man to weaken him to his prey.
  • Satan deceives the soul of man to turn against God.
  • Satan won’t fight God fairly for your soul so he deceives you to turn on God.
  • Satan deceives the soul of man to prove a point to God, whereas he knows that he is already going to Hell so he has to take your soul with him.
  • Satan’s revenge is toward God for your soul and its destiny.
  • Satan has a vendetta against God through mankind and he doesn’t have the nerve to approach God himself, so he deceives you and me and all mankind to get back at God.
  • Salvation has been given freely to every man, whosoever will enter the avenue to righteousness which is the path to get back to God in Spirit and in Truth.
  • God has established a way;
  • He has an opened door policy for the soul of the spirit man to return back to Him in relationship with Him.
  • But it is because of our Will’s circumstances, situations, and issues that cause us to not hear the call of God saying Come, Follow Me and do things My way according to My Will.
  • Mankind is still rebellious!
  • Rebellious in his spirit toward God!
  • Rebellion is man’s independence and it is called sin.
  • Because of his choice to be rebellious he will continue to lust for the things of the world through pride, feelings, and sight.
