Sewn in righteousness to become a pattern of righteousness

God’s Pattern

Sewn in righteousness to become a pattern of righteousness

Apostle Tracey Robinson, 2020 All Rights Reserved

 

  • Pattern is a repeated decorative design.
  • God’s pattern is God’s creative and decorative design of His people with one mind and one spirit designed to make up the whole body of Christ called the Church.
  • God’s pattern consist of one body, one Spirit, one faith, one Lord, and one baptism, Ephesians 4:4-6 that says, 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
  • Now, I know and understand that the Lord God is a God of diversity, but His diversity is not off nor does it bring confusion to His flock.
  • His desires, pleasures, and thoughts are made plain in scripture for all mankind.
  • In the Houses of Prayer there must be some similarity other than the so-called “holy dance”.
  • There should be a balance in the Word of God in every House that is set up as a House of God.

 

1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

 

  • Being governed by the exact same Word of God we all should say the same time.
  • Unity must be enjoined for the Church to become the body of Christ.
  • Unity is a requirement for the Church and its establishment in the earth realm.
  • Unity will make us speak the same thing and will perfectly join us together in mind and in judgment. This is the mind of Christ in you!
  • Weakness and lacking understanding of the Word of God in Spirit and in Truth brings in divisions, ishisms and schisms, and strife because of the misunderstanding of the Word in Spirit and in Truth rightly divided.
  • Studying the Word in Spirit and in Truth will aid you into rightly dividing the Word in truth.
  • But studying the Word in the “logos” form using the 5-sense knowledge does not and will not give you the spiritual understanding of God’s spiritual Word.
  • Logos is derived from the Greek word “logic”.
  • Leaders that do not possess the Spirit of God use the logos form of teaching the Word of God.
  • They will take the Word of God to make a statement, sentence, or argument to persuade believers with reasons by using facts and figures in the Word to make a valid point to the flesh of man.
  • The outcome of this persuasion does not produce a new creature in Christ that can and will grow into the full measure of His stature in spirit and in truth.
  • There is no fleshly interpretation from a spiritual Word!

 

1 Corinthians 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

 

  • This is a union, a marriage joining us as one.
  • Do all the denominations collectively make up the One Spirit of Christ Jesus in bodily form?
  • No matter where or what continent we are in we all should be joined in Christ Jesus.

 

Ephesians 4:15-16 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

 

  • Fitly joined means suitably, properly, and commodiously joined together with Christ being the Head with His Body in unity.
  • When we don’t know what or where our fitly should be applied for our soul, we have the tendency to walk in the vanity of our own minds with the flesh, the world, and the devil incorporated.
  • Vanity meaning the excessive pride in or admiration of our own lust and desires of our flesh.
  • Walking in this manner leads us into spiritual adultery, better known as “church hopping”.
  • Where we were once in spiritual darkness, being alienated from the life of God through Christ Jesus because of our spiritual ignorance; blindness of heart; filthy, indecent and lewd acts; made us prey to unbridled sensuality, eager and greedy to indulge in every form of impurity that our depraved desires suggested and demanded.
  • Even today, believers are out of “sync” with the Will of God so that they are being called and don’t know who is calling them, nor do they “wait” to get clarity on what they are being called to do.
  • Even today, believers are so out of “tune” with the Spirit of God so that they don’t know what member they are called to in order to be “fitly joined” together by the joints and ligaments which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working properly in all functions, to grow to full maturity, and to build itself up in love, not self-love or conditional love.

 

1 Timothy 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

 

  • This is Paul as an example of Jesus Christ to being shown and displayed in him through all His perfect longsuffering and patience to encourage those who will come after him to believe on Jesus Christ to gain eternal life.
  • What example for Jesus Christ are we portraying and demonstrating?
  • What fruit are you growing in to become fully the portrait of Jesus Christ in this earth so that others will come after you to believe on Christ Jesus to gain eternal life?
  • What pattern has God sewn in to be portrayed and displayed in His righteousness?

 

Titus 2:7-8 7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, 8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

 

  • Sound speech means to be able to convey a specific impression of the Spirit of the Word when the Word of God is heard coming out of you.
  • Does the doctrine of Christ Jesus in you show gravity or seriousness by having the strictest regard for truth and purity of your motives?
  • Are your motives in God’s vision, plan, and purpose for mankind? Or just for you?
  • Are you showing yourself in all aspects to be a pattern and a model of good deeds and good works in Christ Jesus?

 

Hebrews 8:5

5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith He, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

 

  • Does your service pattern foreshadow the true existence and reality of the Kingdom’s sanctuary?
  • Does your service in Christ Jesus pattern the exact pattern of righteousness sewn in you by the Spirit of God?
  • Did you change God’s pattern in you to serve man?
  • Leaders did God or has God shown you His exact vision, plan, and purpose in you for the souls of man according to His model, which was portrayed through His Son Jesus?
  • Or has “tradition and religion” with all its rituals and ceremonies of a priestly ministry overshadowed the covenant of the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus?
  • Jesus Christ, the one perfect sacrifice that is the pattern of the true sanctuary in us that must (should) serve the Body of Christ.

 

 

Amen

What really works spiritual gifts?

Spiritual gifts

What really works spiritual gifts?

Apostle Tracey Robinson

 

DISCLAIMER:

  • The teachings are not designed to teach you how to operate in your spiritual gifts, but how to submit yourself to the authority of your gifts and for what it is to be used for.
  • This is well stated in Ephesians 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
  • These teachings are designed to enlighten you to evaluate yourself with the Spirit of God that has “indwelled” you to know how to operate perfectly in Him with His approval as the scripture in Isaiah 55:11 states 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.
  • If the Word of God in you is submitted to and properly adhered to, you should be able to spiritually sow the Word(s) of God to His people as well as to those who are to come.
  • To defeat the devil in your Will you must surrender all to the Spirit of God, that is His Holy Spirit, in order to operate and function as Christ Jesus did as a Son, so shall you do also.

 

PART I

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

 

  • Spiritual means relating to or affecting the human soul and spirit, as opposed to materialistic or physical things.
  • Operation means the fact or condition of functioning or being active.
  • Function is to work or operate in a proper or particular way.
  • Spiritual gifts are just as it says “spiritual gifts”. These spiritual gifts are the gifts of the Holy Spirit, Ephesians 1:19; Colossians 1:29
  • Spiritual gifts are for the spiritual good! The spiritual good means that which is in accordance to the Will of God’s purpose, plan, and intent in you for Him in earth.
  • Spiritual gifts are an endowment or extraordinary power given by the Holy Spirit. Acts 1:8
  • The Holy Spirit is the “spiritual illumination of the Spirit of God”.
  • The work of the Holy Spirit along with the diversities of operation in the gifts is conviction of sin, conviction of righteousness, and conviction of judgment. St John 16:7-11.
  • Spiritual gifts are of the Holy Spirit, not intuition, not gut feelings, not from energy, but only from the Holy Spirit of the Spirit of God.
  • There are no feelings involved in the administration and ministering of the gifts of the Spirit or in displaying the fruit of the Spirit, (Galatians 5:22-24).
  • The impulses of the “feelings” are incorporated within the flesh’s 5-sense knowledge, its carnality, and the devil.
  • Impulse is a sudden strong and unreflective urge or desire to act; a driving or motivating force.
  • Unreflective means not engaged in or characterized by reflection or thought; not reflecting light.
  • The flesh is the devil’s dwelling and habitation, used to portray him as being a part of the Will of God; appearing as an angel of light in darkness; having a form of godliness – a familiar spirit to act out the Holiness of the Spirit of God.
  • The flesh is very deceitful in the usage of the spiritual gifts, therefore the Spirit of God will not use the flesh to operate or function in.
  • Spiritual gifts are individualized for the manifestation of the Spirit of God which is given to every man to profit for good.
  • Spiritual gifts don’t operate in a liar, a compromiser, practical common sense, or one that operates in any part(s) of Galatians 5:19-21.
  • Spiritual gifts work by the same Spirit: God which works all in all.

 

 

PART II

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

 

Let’s study the Word in scriptures and apply them to your spirit man:

1 Corinthians 12

Ephesians 4:1-16

Acts 6:1-7, a definition of the gift of administration

 

The Church

 

  • The Church is made up of a body of unified believers with Christ Jesus being the Head of the Body. 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 1:22-23; 4:12; Colossians 1:24; 2:19
  • The Spirit forms the Church by baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, imparts the gifts for service to every member of the body; guides the members in their service; and is Himself the power of the service. St Matthew 1:18; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11, 27, 30; St Luke 2:27; 4:1; Acts 16:6-7.
  • Unified means make or become united, uniform, or whole.
  • The gifts of the Spirit within the aiding of the fruit of the Spirit make up the Church.
  • Romans 12:3-13 compares the Church to the human body and its various duties as the Church.
  • The Body of Christ should only operate and function as the Bride of Christ.
  • The Spirit abides in the company of believers who constitute the House of Prayer making them corporately, a temple of God. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.
  • No man can say that Jesus is LORD, but by the Holy Ghost.

 

The Holy Spirit (The Holy Ghost)

 

  • The Holy Spirit is revealed as a divine Person. St John 14, 16
  • Indwell means to inhabit; to abide within.
  • To each believer is given a spiritual enablement and capacity for a specific service.

 

  1. God all throughout the Bible for our examples has chosen to use vessels to put His Spirit “upon”, “with”, and “in”. St John 14:17; St Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8.
  2. The Holy Spirit comes upon whom He Will, without reference to conditions in them.
  3. The Holy Spirit comes with indicating the approach of God to the Soul of the Spirit man; convicting of sin; regenerating, as He imparts faith; and presents Christ Jesus as the object of faith in all mankind. St John 3:16; 14:14; Ephesians 2:8.
  4. The Holy Spirit indwelling in is the abiding presence of the Spirit in the believer’s body, to give victory over their flesh, as He creates in them the Christ like character and nature; to help their infirmities; inspire to pray; give conscious access to the Presence of the Father; acknowledge son ship; applying the Word of God to cleanse, sanctify, and deliver; as He comforts and intercedes; etc. 1 Corinthians 6:19; Romans 8:2-4; Galatians 5:16-17; 22-23; Romans 8:26; Ephesians 6:18; 2:18; Galatians 5:6; Ephesians 6:26; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Peter 1:2; Acts 9:31; St John 16:14.

 

 

The different gifts of the Holy Spirit that are “indwelled” by the Spirit: 1 Corinthians 12:8-10. There perfection is through “spiritual indwelling”.

 

Gifts of the Holy Spirit are:

 

  • Word of Wisdom
  1. The source of Wisdom and for Wisdom is God
  2. Wisdom is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment; the quality of being wise
  3. James 1:5-8
  4. Wisdom is a power that gives the ability to discern inner qualities and relationships; in sight; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just
  5. Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
  6. The fear of the Lord is wisdom means reverential fear of God as being the controlling motive of life, in matters spiritual and moral; reverential fear of God that is love and respect; reverential fear of His power and righteous retribution; reverential fear that dreads displeasing Him; etc.
  7. To depart from evil is understanding means whatever is evil in character, base, in distinction (wherever the distinction is observable); whatever is evil in influence and effect, malignant; what is useless, incapable, and bad; what is destructive, injurious; profoundly immoral and wicked; etc.
  8. Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
  9. James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
  10. Hosea 14:9 Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? Prudent, and he shall know them? The ways of the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.

 

 

Common sense is not a gift of the Holy Spirit

  • Common sense is not a gift of the Holy Spirit!
  • Common sense does not employ faith!
  • Common sense does not apply or employ the Spirit of the Lord.
  • Common sense is described as the ability which humans process sense-perception, memories, and imagination in order to reach many types of basic judgments.
  • Common sense is practical judgment concerning every day matters.
  • Practical means of or concerned with the actual doing or use of something rather than with theory and ideas.
  • Practical is a basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge using the 5-senses that is shared by all people. It’s a common thing to do!

 

  • Word of Knowledge
  1. Spiritual knowledge that causes you to exalt the Lord in all things, everything.
  2. Jeremiah 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.
  3. Spiritual acquaintances and/or relationship with God. A personal knowledge or experience with Him.
  4. Hosea 6:3 KJV Amplified Yes, let us know (recognize, be acquainted with, and understand) Him; let us be zealous to know the Lord [to appreciate, give heed to, and cherish Him], His going forth is prepared and certain as the dawn, and He will come to us as the [heavy] rain, as the latter rain that waters the earth.
  5. Word of knowledge is associated with the ability to teach faith in wisdom, revelation knowledge and in prophecy.
  6. Spiritual knowledge is not given to be a hindrance to mankind, instead of a help to mankind.
  7. Obedience is a Kingdom key and a condition of receiving the gift of word of knowledge.
  8. St John 7:16-17 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but His that sent Me. 17 If any man will do His Will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
  9. Spiritual knowledge liberates the Soul from ALL
  10. St John 8:31-32 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If ye continue in My word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
  11. Spiritual knowledge leads to eternal life.
  12. St John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou has sent.
  13. Philippians 3:10 That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death;
  14. Colossians 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

 

  • Faith
  1. There is a difference between the gifts of faith and saving faith that is required for salvation.
  2. The gift of faith just believes God in whatever the situation, circumstance, or issue is, without reservations. It is not a “transactional faith”.
  3. All believers have been given “saving faith”, but not all believers are given the “gift of faith”. One must grow its faith!
  4. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace ye are saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
  5. Saving faith in Christ secures salvation. St John 3:15; 3:36
  6. Saving faith’s belief on the Son of God gives us everlasting life, and without it we won’t see life everlasting. St John 5:24-25; 12:46; 20:31; Romans 10:9-10
  7. Romans 12:3 speaks of “a measure of faith” according to God He has dealt to every spirit man.
  8. This measure of faith starts in hearing the Word of God! Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
  9. Hearing increases one’s faith to spiritually grow in the full stature of Christ Jesus. This is the transformation process, if permitted!
  10. Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
  11. 2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight):
  12. Hebrews 11:1; James 2:17
  13. 1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

 

  • Gifts of Healing
  1. Having the ability to act as an intermediary in faith, prayer, and by the laying on of hands for the healing of the physical, mental, and spiritual sicknesses.
  2. Intermediary is a person who acts as a link between people in order to bring about an agreement or reconciliation; a mediator; intermediate.
  3. To serve as an attendant to care for the sick, to treat, cure, heal spiritually.
  4. St Matthew 10:1; St Mark 3:15; 16:18
  5. Acts 3:1-10; 9:32-35; 28:7-10

 

  • Working of Miracles
  1. Miracles are dominion over the earth.
  2. The Kingdom of God dominating the environment of the earth is a miracle.
  3. The working of miracles produces healing, blind eyes opening, lame to walk, dead raised, etc. means the Kingdom has taken dominion over the earth and is correcting the cells, the blood, the breath, the organs, the nerves, etc. in the body of the citizens of the Kingdom of God.
  4. When working miracles the Spirit of God has come to dominate the earth to provide the need of the citizens of His Kingdom, His people.
  5. The Bible gives us many examples of miracles performed.

 

  • Prophecy
  1. Prophecy is the speaking forth of the mind and counsel of God; the forth-telling of the Will of God whether with reference to the past, the present, or the future.
  2. A believer can be a chosen instrument of God to accomplish God’s purpose may have the gift of prophecy only and not necessarily have the office of a prophet!
  3. Pastors can have the gift of prophecy and are not necessarily have the office of a prophet.
  4. Everyone that prophesies is not necessarily a prophet.
  5. This is where a lot of confusion has taken place with the believers and in the House of Prayer when the Spirit of the Lord comes “upon” a vessel, we assume that they are a Prophet, when in fact their vessel is just being used to allow the Spirit of the Lord God to rest upon them to speak His heart only for the moment at hand.
  6. There is no self-choosing of which gift you will operate and function in, but is given by God to every spirit man severally as He Wills.
  7. Old Testament prophets were used purely the foretelling of the coming of the Kingdom of God; His proclamation of His Divine purposes of salvation and glory to be accomplished in the future through the coming Messiah.
  8. New Testament prophets are both preachers preaching of the Divine counsels of grace that is already accomplished and of God’s purposes in the future foretold. In other words, Jesus is already here and has completed the work God had assigned to His hands.

 

  • Discerning of Spirits
  1. Discerning of spirits is judging by evidence whether they are evil or of God; capable of discriminating between good and evil.
  2. The ability to spiritually identify falseness, to distinguish between right and wrong motives and the spiritual forces at work in situations, circumstances, and issues.
  3. 1 John 4:1-6
  4. St Matthew 16:21-23
  5. Acts 5:1-11

 

  • Divers Kinds of Tongues
  1. Divers’ means in many ways.
  2. The ability to speak in another language unknown to the speaker
  3. Acts 2:4-13
  4. The Spirit of God gives His expression of utterance through the Tongues that will need to be spoken.
  5. Tongues are a sign for the unbelievers, not the believers. Whereas prophesying serves not for the unbeliever, but to them that believe. 1Corinthians 14:22; St Mark 16:17
  6. Tongues are to be used to speak to God to edify oneself, 1 Corinthians 14:4.

 

  • Interpretation of Tongues
  1. 1 Corinthians 14:26
  2. Interpretation is to explain, expound, to loose, and to solve a spiritual message that is not understandable in the natural.
  3. To utter the expressed inspiration of the Words of God through the gift of tongues with and through a believer that can explain and loose the utterance of the Spirit of God to the Church.
  4. This gift can be given to one to interpret what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church.

 

 

 

The diversity of the Spiritual gifts is called the 5-fold ministry, with different duty assignments to edify, to comfort, and to encourage the believers, with the effect upon unbelievers is to show that the secrets of a man’s heart is known to God, to convict sin, and to constrain to worship.

 

  • Ephesians 4:11 And he gave to some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
  • The gifts of the spirit were given in diversity (variety; a range of different things).

Apostles

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us Apostles, called and appointed by Himself to be special messengers. St Mark 1:17; 2:14
  • Apostles have a demographic message that is to pioneer new churches and ministries through discipleship, planting, overseeing, teaching, and training, etc.
  • An Apostle’s life is the embodiment of that demographic message. Embodiment is the representation or expression of something in a tangible or visible form.

Prophets

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us Prophets inspired preachers and expounders of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Acts 13:1-5
  • As a Prophet, God will make Himself known to him/her in a vision, and will speak to him/her in a dream. Numbers 12:6; 2 Chronicles 20:20
  • Prophets today prophesy to foretell the Divine counsels, and future of the oracles of God in the Body.
  • Prophets of the Old Testament were the ones that the Spirit of God rested “upon” them to speak. Numbers 11:17-29; 12:2; Amos 3:7-8.
  • The New Testament Prophet is a foreteller, one whose gift enables him/her to speak edification, exhortation, and comfort to the Body.
  • The Lord will rise up a Prophet like unto Himself. Deuteronomy 18:15-22.

Evangelists

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us Evangelists, preachers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; traveling missionaries. 2 Timothy 4:5
  • Evangelist, evangelize through the preaching of the Gospel that will lead souls to the conversion of the Gospel, Acts 8:5-6, 26-40
  • Evangelist are wise to become soul-winners!
  • Evangelist pleads the Blood of Jesus, the atonement for the salvation of men from their sins.
  • The ministry of the Evangelist is to comb the multitudes, harvesting their souls and healing their bodies through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Pastors

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us Pastors, shepherds of His flock.
  • Pastors feed the flock the spiritual food from the heart of God, Jeremiah 3:15; 23:4. This is the soul of man’s spiritual food.
  • Pastors are as overseers to feed the Church of God which He purchased with His own Blood, Acts 20:28
  • 1 Peter 5:2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

Teachers

  • The Spirit of the LORD gave us
  • Teachers are spiritual instructors, Ezra 7:10
  • Teachers must seek the laws of the Lord God, to do them, and to teach them.

 

  • All these spiritual gifts should be Sons of God, exemplifying the spiritual maturity of Christ’s perfection through the conversion of their soul transformed by the Word of God.
  • All these spiritual gifts should possess the leadership ability and strength of the Spirit of Christ Jesus through influence and directions from the Word of God through the gifts of the Spirit that will cause them to focus on the vision and ideas of the Spirit of God in the earth realm.
  • All these spiritual gifts must know how to operate in their gifts as a gift!
  • The anointing through the Holy Spirit MUST BE upon and in each spirit of male or female in order to do the work and the Will of God in Christ Jesus. Without the anointing to do the job it will be impossible to carry out the total task or assignment that God has called you to do.
  • The anointing is what will render you as being Holy. The anointing will separate them from all others to be in intimacy with God; and to become the priest of God in their assignment.
  • 2 Corinthians 1:21 N ow he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
  • 1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

 

Why did the Spirit of the Lord God give us these spiritual gifts?

  • Ephesians 4:12-13 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
  • His intention is to use these spiritual gifts to perfect and fully equip the Saints (His consecrated people), that they should know to do the work of ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ toward the building of Christ’s Body (the Church).
  • Until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the full and accurate knowledge of the Son of God that we might arrive at the mature manhood of the complete personality which is the standard height of Christ’s own perfection, the measure of the full stature of Christ and His completeness in us.
  • When we don’t grow, then we are spiritually immature. Spiritual immaturity is due to our inability to be unified in Christ as believers being converted to become Christ like in perfection, and in the fullness of the knowledge of Him in our souls.

To operate in your gift as a gift

  • How does one come to know so much about God’s movements? His Presence? His Devotion? His Desires? His Pleasures?
  • One must be in an intimate relationship with God’s Spirit.
  • One must be married to the Spirit of God.
  • One must be in relationship with Him and “in love” with Him to experience His love for the spirit man.
  • To be in love is to experience the love that you have vowed to love.
  • Flesh doesn’t know how to do this! It’s version of love is lust, because it “feels” love.
  • Love is not a feeling! Love is a “force generated by the Will” from the soul, not the 5-sense knowledge of the flesh.

Operation of the gifts – The marks of love – Love’s preeminence

  • The gifts of the Spirit and the gifts to the Body (the Church) only operate in love.
  • If you have never experienced love without a feeling then you won’t understand how to operate and function spiritually in your gift and to be a gift.
  • You must be a gift in order to operate and function as a gift!
  • There must be a level of intimacy in a relationship
  • The reason why the gifts to the Church are not operating and functioning in the earth realm is because of greed, jealously, covet, competition, along with all the other works of the flesh operating in the spirit man. In all of this there is no intimacy and no love!
  • How can you function without a Spirit of Intimacy?
  • Intimacy is close or confidential friendship; an intimate act
  • How can you love without a spirit of intimacy?
  • Genuine love and unconditional love that is the Body of Christ.
  • This is why the Bible uses marriage between a man and woman as being the visible representation of the invisible marriage between Christ and His Bride (The Church).

 

The way men and women portray and go through marriages in the earth realm is a poor, poor depiction of a spiritual process.

Men and women’s portrait of marriage is founded upon money, sex, ability to make one another look good in the flesh for the eyes of man, and so-called knowledge and ability to get ahead; just to be able to say, Look what I got!

The invisible marriage is solely about love and knowing how to stay in love and devoted to one.

The Lord has demonstrated true love through His Son Jesus Christ, with an everlasting love. This is a love that we vow in matrimony as being “until deaths do us apart”. This is our everlasting!

Visible relationships in marriages are not closely related and in confidential friendship because nine times out of ten the way you began that relations was through sins of the flesh, i.e. adultery, fornication, lying, deception, etc.

And this is that relationship in marriage that is founded upon sin and it won’t last, except death due it apart.

The flesh understands intimacy, close friendship, or romance is carnality.

 

The gifts of the Spirit and to the Church must operate in a pure spirit with no hidden, premeditated motives or agendas. And God knows the heart so you’ll never be all that He has called you to be except you do it all His Way.

To be intimate is to be in close connection to the innermost part of your being, which is soul and spirit, not the penis and vagina.

To be intimate is in the innermost; indwelling.

Intimate proceeds from within. It is an inward relation.

Indwelling is what the Holy Spirit does when He indwells His Spirit in your spirit. This begins an intimate relationship – a vow has been made – romance has begun.

The depth of your indwelling of the Holy Spirit determines your level of intimacy with the Spirit of God.

Indwelling comes to love you intimately, that is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Indwell means to inhabit; to abide in, within.

The depth of your submission will determine your indwelling.

Indwelling of the Holy Spirit is the way the Holy Spirit takes His possession. He must possess you to live in you as His Temple.

Your submission determines the depths of your indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This is to say whether He is guiding and leading you in all your being, not just your part of surrender.

The depths of your indwelling will determine your ability, the power to do. In other words, the depths of levels of your love will determine the force of the power and authority that is demonstrated and portrayed in you.

Your ability to submit, to obey, to humble yourself, to stand to let the Lord fight, to surrender to all to Him is all demonstrated in the depths of your indwelling.

So the Holy Spirit must “indwell in the depth” in your spirit to control your soul within.

It is safe to say that the deeper He abides in you the closer you are to Him.

It is also safe to say that the gifts of the Holy Spirit and you being a gift only can operate and function from the level of intimacy penetrated in your spirit.

 

Amen

God hears, God responds to faith enjoined

God hears, God responds to faith enjoined

 Apostle Robinson 2020 All Rights Reserved

 

When we obey the Word and Laws of God, God responds to our every need and desire according to His Will.

 

·         Faith enjoined is faith that is instructed, urged, followed, and obeyed by the Word of God.

·         Faith operates from the belief of hope desired in the Will and Word of God. In other words, your desired hope must be the Will of God’s desired hope that is functioning together. And in order for that to be so there must be a relationship between God and you which will link the two Wills together as one Will and one Way.

·         Healing is the children’s bread, but faith must be enjoined with the Spirit of God and His Word to manifest the healing power of the Word of God in you.

·         Faith is a belief system designed by God Himself.

·         Faith is not a repetitious system of speaking over and over again to obtain a desired effect. Just believe!

·         Faith is not a 3 step belief system! Faith is not a 7 step process in believing! JUST BELIEVE!

 

We are in times now where the Word of God is being challenged, tried, and debated by believers that say they believe; that say that I can hear God ; that are saying I don’t believe that like that; etc.

All of this is the desired effects of the spirit of Satan! All of this is contrary to the Word of God!

This is not your opinion, comments, or suggestions. It is either God or the devil!

Our total response to the Word of God when we don’t want to obey is to flee (leave).

We are living in times where God is speaking to the unrighteous as well as the righteous as they supposed through their own private interpretations through the feelings of their flesh.

Believers are running around with itchy ears looking for a soft word from the Word of God that will suit their unbelief and their comfort zones. 2 Timothy 4:3-4

Believers today are watered down to “skip the truth” so that it is hard for them to know that their Will must die.

Believers today want to feel and see what they feel, which makes them a part of that adulterous generation that Jesus spoke about in St Matthew 12:39-41

Arguing, debating the Word through one’s own private interpretation, with foolish questioning that is not pleasing to God, but only breed strife and evil influence.

You cannot go wrong in obeying the Spirit of the Word of God through the Spirit of God and not your 5-sense knowledge and understanding.

You cannot go wrong in obeying in faith! But because of that you will be ostracized, criticized, and turned on, etc. for the truth.1 Peter 4:14-17

 

Romans 10:13-17

13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?

15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

Glad tidings are not good news for the perfecting of the flesh and its comforts;

Glad tidings are the good news of the Kingdom of God and His righteousness for the returned soul of the spirit man, and the warning to all mankind of the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to judge and rule.

And if they are not preaching, teaching, and ministering as such the Word speaks of “woe to the pastor that leads God’s flock astray”.

 

Good tidings: St Luke 1:19; 2:10; 8:1

 

·         Your faith must be “charged” in and by believing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

·         Your faith should be filled with excitement, tension, or emotions ALL released from the soul of man.

·         The Word of God comes to our hearing to charge the Word of God perceived and conceived in the heart.

·         A soft answer turns away wrath; but grievous words stir up anger Proverbs 15:1. This is not the Word of God that does this. It is your flesh, its behavior, and lust that is grievous and gets angry from the truth, and that which you are not obeying.

·         Struggling to obey the Word of God is not a “concept of salvation”. Concept meaning it is a plan or intention.

·         Struggle means to make forceful or violent efforts to get free of restraint or constriction.

·         God’s plan through His Son Jesus was not designed to be a struggle for the spirit man and for his soul to obey.

·         God’s plan of salvation that must use the substance called faith is not a struggle.

·         Today’s generation of believer’s are struggling trying to free themselves from the restraint and constrictions of their Will without God by saying “I got to clean myself up first in this area or in that area”. This is something we will never be able to do! If it were possible to save yourself Jesus would not have had to come.

·         God’s plan for His people through salvation is a “built-in” process for success in every living soul of the species man.

 

·         The Word of God is being challenged by the believer’s Will that say they are believers.

·         The Word of God will challenge you in Spirit and in Truth, so getting angry at the messenger and not being able to hear and let the Word examine you is a “poor example and demonstration” of one’s faith.

·         The Word of God is given by the inspiration of God (inspiration of God’s breath to breathe life through the Word to your soul and spirit).

·         The Word of God is profitable for doctrine (a belief system or a set of beliefs held, even those that you believe in).

·         The Word of God is profitable for reproof (an expression of blame or disapproval).

·         The Word of God is profitable for correction (a change that rectifies an error or inaccuracy).

·         The Word of God is profitable for instruction in righteousness (a detailed information telling how the Word of God should be believed, applied, done, operated in, or assembled in the Soul of man to be in right standing with God and His Word).

·         So that the soul of man may be perfect, thoroughly furnished until or to all good works.

·         So that the Word of God is for our perfection to display and demonstrate the Word of God in earth.

·         So if an when you get angry, debating’s, or disgruntle (angry or dissatisfied) with the messenger of God, then you really need to check your salvation; check your ability to hear; check your perceptibility to hear and obey; and check your consistency in being persistent to have faith in the Word of God required.

·         Faith knows its position in the Word.

·         Faith knows its position in the Word of God that you have obeyed and submitted too.

·         Until your soul has been converted into perfection in the laws of God’s Word to follow and obey according to the Will of His Spirit then you will need a preacher, a pastor, a teacher to feed you with the knowledge and understanding of God’s heart toward you.

·         Fleshly lusts wars against your soul!

 

Amen

The Power of The Cross

The Power of the Cross reopened the entrance to the Garden

The Power of the Cross gave us access back into the Presence of God

 

Apostle Robinson 2020 All Rights Reserved

 

Romans 8:18-19 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

                                                           

Even nature is waiting to see the Sons of God in the earth. Our form of godliness puts nature in disarray. A state of disorganization or untidiness.

This glory mentioned here is not a glory after death. The scripture is saying that the sufferings you go through for the namesake of Christ Jesus in this present world cannot be compared to what glory your suffering is revealing through you right now.

In this present time with its perils, the secret to our success is “built-in” us through God’s built-in laws that will guarantee His success in us, not yours but God.

So we cannot fulfill no dreams, visions, use gifts and talents effectively without obeying the laws of His success which are built-in us.

When we discover the laws of God built-in us we don’t need to always pray about everything and anything, but what we should be praying about, and that is what is going on in Heaven to be manifest in the earth for the world to see.

Suffering is the “state of” undergoing pain, distress, or hardship.

Suffer is to experience or be subjected to (something bad or unpleasant); be affected by or subject to (an illness or ailment); become or appear worse in quality; undergo martyrdom or execution.

Suffering should bring in a response to the Word of God that lives inside of you from everything that comes your way and against you. That is toward every weapon formed against you.

 

2 Timothy 2:12-13 12 if we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him he also will deny us: 13 If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself.

 

  • The Word of God knows how to respond to suffering! For example, suffering is like 911 to the Word of God.
  • Self-afflicted suffering from the consequences of the wrong choices made is not for the namesake of Christ Jesus.
  • It is your permissive Will of your choice and actions toward and against the Word of God that God has allowed.
  • Namesake means someone named after another; a person or thing that has the same name as another
  • Namesake is when you name your son or daughter your first name meaning that he or she is your namesake. They look just like you!
  • When a building, statute, roads, streets, or any other designs is named after the founder, the funder, or something that person did is a namesake.
  • But we are talking about the namesake of you in being a born again creature, born in the resurrection of Christ Jesus in you. This is your namesake!
  • Jesus’ namesake must be born in you and resurrected in you in order to suffer for His namesake.
  • The namesake of Christ Jesus in you is God’s trademark which gives back to the spirit man the Image of God, after His likeness.
  • We will grow spiritually in Christ Jesus as new born babes, born again with the trade name of God the Father. We are His Sons! We are to grow spiritually into being sons.
  • His namesake reveals to the world, your flesh, and the devil God’s trademark that is upon you. Yes it can be seen by the world, your flesh and the devil and his demons.
  • We become like a city that sits upon a hilltop to be seen by all as an attraction that will spiritually draw all men to come and to even inquire.
  • Having the namesake of Christ Jesus makes us as He is in this world the “light of the world”. St John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
  • This is how you will know and understand that you have been truly bought with a price. We then know how to glorify God in our body, mind, spirit, and soul. 1 Corinthians 6:20.
  • When you speak people will hear that you are not your own? They will only hear the Spirit of Christ Jesus in you, that which makes you a son of God.
  • We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the Excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7. This will surely bring in the suffering for Christ Jesus.
  • What is the glory that is revealed in us in this world? The glory of God which carries the reputation of God that is known to be successful.
  • By definition, glory means high renown or honor; won by notable achievements; magnificence or great beauty; to take great pride or pleasure in.

 

Know how to handle the glory that shall be revealed in you in earth. Don’t think that God’s glory belongs to you, or is for you to become successful or because God is using you. God made it clear in His word that no flesh shall glory in His presence. 1 Corinthians 1:29.

God does not share His glory with any man! Isaiah 42:8 I am the Lord that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

We need to be very mindful of our “I”. Be very careful when you/we refer to God’s Will and Way in you as “I”.

  • Having the namesake of Christ Jesus will show the glory of God in you.
  • Christ resurrected in you gives you His name to become a Son of God.
  • Having the namesake of Christ Jesus goes far beyond being just a believer. It is the agent working with the Word of God to transform you into being Christ like.
  • As a new creature with the namesake of Christ Jesus we are the spitting image of Him.
  • As a new creature with the namesake of Christ Jesus we are riding on the reputation of God, not an overseer.
  • God’s reputation is built-in us to succeed, but it is through the namesake of Christ Jesus that He will fulfill His reputation in you.
  • God’s reputation is important and essential in Heaven and in earth. His reputation succeeds Him!
  • Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

St Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

 

This is the condition for discipleship that will lead the soul of mankind back to son ship.

 

  • The power of the Cross reopened the entrance to the Garden, which is the entrance back to the Kingdom of God for relationship and intimacy to return with the Father.

 

When the man species of Adam that is male and female were escorted out of the Garden, which is the Presence of God; the power of the Cross of Jesus Christ condemned all of mankind’s sin, making it possible now to return back into His Presence. This is a spiritual process that is!

 

Genesis 3:20-24

20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

 

  • Sin separates us from God.
  • Man became a castaway from God.
  • And if you are still in sin, compromising the Word of God, or in a backslidden state, you are a castaway.
  • But it took a Son to bring all of God’s sons’ and daughters’ back to Him.

 

Man was drove out of God’s Presence from the east of the Garden. God placed Cherubims and a flaming sword which turned every way to keep the way of the tree of life from man. Genesis 6:5.

Because God knew the wickedness of every imagination of the thoughts of man’s heart was only evil continually He made sure that Adam or any other could sneak back into the Garden to access the tree of life and live forever. Genesis 6:5; Jeremiah 17:9-10, a deceitful heart.

God said in Genesis 3:22 Behold the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil.

SEE when we get too big for our britches, as they say we don’t want to obey our parents and their rules and standards.

 

BUT GOD had a plan! He knew that because of the sin of man that every man born of a woman would be a few days and full of trouble, Job 14:1. So He had to devise a created plan that would bring all mankind back to Him.

BUT because of God, a Father’s knowledge and divine care for that which He had created He had a plan.

SEE like a good Father He knew how to take care of His creation, that which He had created in LOVE.

 

Hebrews 10:1-14

 

Verse 13, who is God’s enemy: That spirit of pride, rebellion, unbelief, doubt, and disobedience. This is what has become the god over God’s beloved creation – YOU, the spirit man.

Verse 14, one offering made for us all Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God; made only once for all.

  • Jesus’ suffering brought full restoration for all mankind, but still left man freewill, that is with a Will like God’s to choose or reject God and His House rules, regulations, and standards.
  • Jesus had to come on the scene!
  • The power of the Cross brought a sacrificial offering made by God to redeem all mankind and restore the fellowship that was once before in the beginning. St John 3:16-17
  • The power of the Cross brought full restoration for all mankind
  • The power of the Cross brought all mankind a choice to repent and be born again of the water and of the Spirit as Sons of God. St John 3:3-6
  • The power of the Cross brought TOTAL healing, TOTAL deliverance, TOTAL victory over all by the Blood of Jesus by faith.
  • The power of the Cross brought the COMFORTER, which is the Holy Ghost.
  • The power of the Cross brought the Spirit of Truth. St John 14:16-17
  • The power of the Cross brought freedom, St John 8:32
  • The power of the Cross brought to the believer the power to just believe God and His Word. St John 14:12

 

 

Amen
