Personal Touch Operating Word for the New Year 2021

 

The Lord spoke and said who shall go?

Personal Touch responds with, “Send me Lord I’ll go.”

The Lord said, success is here, success is here! Now move forward.

 

Isaiah 6:8-12 KJV Amplified

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

9 And He said, Go and tell this people, Hear and hear continually, but understand not; and see and see continually, but do not apprehend with your mind.

10 Make the heart of this people fat; and make their ears heavy and shut their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their hearts, and turn again and be healed.

11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until cities lie waste without inhabitant and houses without man, and the land is utterly desolate,

12 And the Lord removes [His] people far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.

Living Under Your Circumstances and Not Privileges

Spiritual Inheritance (Apostle Tracey Robinson)

Living under your circumstances and not the privileges of the Kingdom of God does not give God pleasure.

 

Spiritual inheritance is a believer’s privilege to receive a spiritual heritage from Our Father who art in Heaven as a result of being adopted into the Family of God by faith through Jesus Christ; to include all spiritual good provided through and in Christ and particularly all that is contained in the hope grounded on the promise of God.

Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

We inherit through Jesus Christ the spiritual heritage of the Kingdom of God, Our Father.

We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. Romans 8:16-17 KJV Amplified says

16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God.

17 And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory.

 

  • Privilege is a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group.
  • Heritage was given to us through Adam from the beginning when He gave us dominion over the earth. This is God’s heritage to His creation the species man.
  • Heritage means property that is or may be inherited; an inheritance; an allotted portion.
  • Adopt means to legally take (another’s child) and bring it up as your own; choose to take up, follow, or use; to take by choice into a relationship. St John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, He may give it you.
  • Inherit means to receive or to be left with from a predecessor or a former owner.
  • Heir is a person inheriting and continuing the legacy of a predecessor.

 

Our spiritual inheritance is far greater than houses, land, money, prestige, and status quo; riches of rubies, diamond, pearls, and sapphires.

Our spiritual inheritance is the spiritual Kingdom of God and His righteousness, with all other things being supplied as needed according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

 

Colossians 1:12-13 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: (translate means to move from one place or condition to another).

KJV Amplified 12 Giving thanks to the Father, Who has qualified and made us fit to share the portion which is the inheritance of the saints (God’s holy people) in the Light.

13 [The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

 

1 Peter 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

KJV Amplified [Born a new] into an inheritance which is beyond the reach of change and decay [imperishable], unsullied and unfading, reserved in heaven for you.

 

  • God gets pleasure when we take charge of our environment, in charge of your future in Him, in charge of your destiny through His influence and authority.
  • God is pleased when we are not under the circumstances of our choice and livelihood.
  • Circumstance is a fact or condition connected with or relevant to an event or action; an event or fact that causes or helps to cause something to happen, typically something undesirable; one’s state of financial or material welfare.
  • Privileges of the Kingdom of God are listed throughout the Bible, and they are more than just a singled out blessing of my desire. God’s blessings are His favor and protection!
  • The privileges of the Kingdom of God includes healing, deliverance, sanctification, righteousness, and holiness toward the King of the Kingdom first, then your brethren.
  • Privileges that relates to the whole soul and spirit of man, not just the natural (flesh of man).

 

Living under your circumstances

  • What it means is that we are living under the bondage of our rights as a citizen in American to achieve the American dream? We return back to being in bondage because of stuff!
  • Your blessings that you say God has blessed your with are under the control of the systems of this world, and are not governed by the Spirit of the Kingdom of God. In other words, we don’t wait on the Spirit of God to get into the systems of this world to turn things around to our favor.
  • Your home is owned by the financial system of the systems of this world.
  • Your health is owned and under the bondage of the medical system and its medications. You will go to the doctor and put your allegiance and faith in him and not in your Creator that created you. He knows His product better than anyone can ever study, experiment, or learn.
  • Living under your circumstances means you are living “in this specific situation”, “under the authority of the circumstance” and you’ve already convinced yourself “there is nothing you can do under this circumstance”. In other words, the circumstance is defeating you!
  • Living under your circumstances is the consequences of your choices that you dealt yourself in this thing called life. In other words, our circumstances are the hand we played based upon what we were dealt in life.
  • Living under your circumstances as “a victim” means that things are out of control to the point that the end results have affected you and is much different from what you believe should have been dealt and played in life.

 

 

 

 

Living above your circumstances

  • What it means to live above your circumstances is to be a Kingdom citizen living in earth, not just having knowledge but knowing your spiritual heritage and inheritance?
  • Living above your circumstances produces contentment and spiritual stability in your life.
  • Philippians 4:10-13 KJV Amplified

10 I was made very happy in the Lord that now you have revived your interest in my welfare after so long a time; you were indeed thinking of me, but you had no opportunity to show it.

11 Not that I am implying that I was in any personal want, for I have learned how to be content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am.

12 I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing every situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want.

13 I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me: I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].

  • To live above our circumstances as new creatures we must learn to acquire a dependency on and in God and His provisions outlined in our spiritual inheritance, and most of all learn how to be patient and wait on the move of God.
  • We must learn to trust God’s care with little or much just as Paul stated in verse 12. This is adapting to circumstances, not give into them but learning how to live through
  • One thing my Apostle Howard used to always say to the saints especially when he could see that we were going through a situation or circumstance. He would always say, “if you going through, gone on through”.
  • Victory is the evident of contentment!
  • Contentment is being in a state of happiness and satisfaction.
  • Victory over your circumstances is having victory over all!

 

Spiritual inheritance…

  • Is not just natural stuff and being in abundance of it stuff?
  • We want materialistic, temporal stuff over the invisible heritages of God by faith.
  • We want to believe God based upon what we can see and feel, and that is not faith!
  • Spiritual treasures require spiritual investments and these investments will secure your spiritual treasures.
  • Investment is the action or process of investing money for profit or material result. This is the natural definition!
  • Spiritually, we must grow by going through the process of God by investing our ALL, your whole self and whole heart to Him. This is a daily required action!
  • Spiritual riches are not tangible (perceptible by touch) nor materialistic.
  • Riches of the Kingdom of God include, but are not limited to wisdom, righteousness, grace, being under a new governmental covenant, eyes opened (enlightenment), understanding, truth, faith, knowledge, contentment, favor, eternal life through salvation, inheriting the earth again (dominion), inheriting the Kingdom, inheriting the Lord Himself, inheriting the Word of God, and inheriting the FULL rights of a Son of God, and so much more, etc.
  • Proverbs 10:22 KJV Amplified The blessing of the Lord – it makes (truly) rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it].
  • Hebrews 11:26 KJV Amplified He considered the contempt and abuse and shame [borne for] the Christ (the Messiah Who was to come) to be greater wealth than all the treasures of Egypt, for he looked forward and away to the reward (recompense).
  • James 2:5 KJV Amplified Listen my beloved brethren: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and in their position as believers and to inherit the kingdom which He has promised to those who love Him?
  • 2 Corinthians 6:10 KJV Amplified (example of spiritual riches) As grieved and mourning, yet [we are] always rejoicing; as poor [ourselves, yet] bestowing riches on many; as having nothing, and [yet in reality] possessing all things.

 

Our spiritual inheritance has conditions and is based upon continuing in obedience and faith.

 

  • 1 Peter 3:9-12 KJV Amplified

9 Never return evil for evil or insult for insult (scolding, tongue-lashing, berating), but on the contrary blessing [praying for their welfare, happiness, and protection, and truly pitying and loving them]. For know that to this you have been called, that you may yourselves inherit a blessing [from God – that you may obtain a blessing as heirs, bringing welfare and happiness and protection].

10 For let him who wants to enjoy life and see good days [good – whether apparent or not] keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile (treachery, deceit).

11 Let him turn away from wickedness and shun it, and let him do right. Let him search for peace (harmony; undisturbedness from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts) and seek it eagerly. [Do not merely desire peaceful relations with God, with your fellowmen, and with yourself, but pursue, go after them!]

12 For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God), and His ears are attentive to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who practice evil [to oppose them, to frustrate, and defeat them].

 

Our spiritual inheritance is denied to the ungodly

 

  • Ephesians 5:5 KJV Amplified For be sure of this: that no person practicing sexual vice or impurity in thought or in life, or one who is covetous [who has lustful desire for the property of others and is greedy for gain] – for he [in effect] is an idolater – has any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God.

 

Amen

The Kingdom of God and the Church are not synonymous

The Kingdom of God and the Church are not synonymous (Apostle Tracey Robinson)

Part I

 

Synonymous means (of a word or phrase) having the same or nearly the same meaning as another word or phrase in the same language; closely associated with or suggestions of something; having the same implications to.

 

  • The Church is spiritual! It is the Body of Christ! It is the Bride of Christ!
  • It is the Spirit of the Lords that forms the Church!
  • The Church is the representation of the Kingdom of God in earth.

 

The church as known today is…

  • A building used for public Christian worship;
  • A place to practice or of a common interest to practice tradition and religion as unto God.
  • The clergy and or its officials come together as a religious body as unto God, to sanctify themselves as being holy in the sight of other men to practice morals and values in a practical manner according to the Law (the Old Testament).
  • A local assembly where believers, spirit filled or not attend together for a moral or social benefit and satisfaction; to be blessed and feel good about themselves and the consequences of their choices;
  • A place to attach oneself to when no longer needful or useful to and in the world and its practices.
  • A place to hold gatherings of any sort as unto the Lord and say we are blessed by the best.
  • A place where we run to when the weights of our choices and consequences have literally destroyed one in mind, spirit, soul, and body.
  • A place where truth is sugary and watered down for the pleasure of men.
  • It is manmade religion! A program created by man to offer up to God like a Cain offering.
  • Religion offers to God a form of godliness that denies the actual power and authority that God has over man. Zechariah 4:6 where the Lord was speaking to Zerubbabel, saying “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit”, saith the Lord of hosts.
  • Religion tries to generate might and power in the Lord based upon dead history.
  • The church in its religion makes you comfortable in your discomfort, and religion cannot change it.

 

The Church should…

  • The Church is spiritual and it is the spirit of the Lord that forms the Church, not I feel like God is calling me to do a greater good.
  • Consist of God’s called out people.
  • The Church is born again, unified believers gathering together with one common interest in a local assembly, better known as a sanctuary, the House of God, or the House of Prayer.
  • Unified believers that believe in the Son of God that have been spiritually drawn by the Spirit of God through Jesus back to God the Father.
  • The physical building ONLY facilitate the fellowship, praise, prayer, and worship, and the ministering of the ministry of God to His chosen people, which is the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, the Good news.

 

  1. How is the Church built? What is the Church?
  • The Church was built and established upon the statement of faith spoken by Peter in St Matthew 16:18.
  • Peter stated that Jesus was “the Christ, the Son of the living God” in verse 16. Peter told Jesus who He was in the body and in the Spirit!
  • The Church is the spiritual body of the Christ inside the natural body of His Son Jesus walking among all men, man and female in gender.
  • The Church is the spiritual body of the Christ “growing” within your natural body as you spiritually matures in the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ.
  • The word Jesus used was “Ekklesia” from the Hebrew word meaning “called out ones”.
  • To know that you are the Church you must know that you are a “called out one”. If not, then this may explain some of your struggles of being incomplete in the spiritual realm of your becoming a new creature in Christ to become a Son of God.
  • We’ve got a whole lot of people in the local assembly, but God is calling out just a few. This few is called “Ekklesia”.
  • The Body of Christ is with gifts for service imparted to/into every member of the body.
  • The Church is compared to the human body! Romans 12:4-5 4 For as we have many in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5 So we, being many, are one members one of another. 6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
  • The Church is like a city that sits on a hill and cannot be hidden because of the spiritual light, the radiant lives of the members of its body. St Matthew 5:14, 16 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
  • So the Church is you! Individually and or corporately.
  • We are the Church! Spirit beings used by the influence of the Kingdom of God in the earth for fellowship, praise, and worship to the Spirit of God in public, in private, individually or corporately with all having the same like faith and discipline as others to obey the Word of God just as Jesus demonstrated in His Presence, Power, and Authority in the earth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kingdom representation is the Church

Part II

 

  1. The purpose for creating the Church.
  • Purpose is the reason for which something is done or created into existence.
  • Purpose has to do with our end.
  • Purpose is the reason why the end is the result, not the means.
  • Our processing should always take us to purpose, but purpose should never become our process.
  • Ephesians 3:9-12

9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

            11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

            12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

  • The purpose of God is still His original intent fulfilled through the spirit man His church (His called out chosen humans beings); to manifest His manifold (many and various) types of manifestations through wisdom applied and now made being made known to the angels (angelic rulers and authorities) principalities and powers in the heavenly to impress the angels and they see you/us act just like God.
  • God wanted the rulers in the heavenly realm to know what He is like through the Church
  • Hebrews 1:14 Are not the angels all ministering spirits (servants) sent out in the service [of God for the assistance] of those who are to inherit salvation?
  • God don’t want to just manifest Himself in preaching, teaching, prophesying, in dollars, in houses, land, cars, happy marriages, good health, fine children, clothing, or a good looking building, etc. He wants to manifold God applied! That is His godliness manifested through you through your word, deed, actions, and thoughts in the many different manifolds in the earth through wisdom.
  • How do we manifest God in the earth? Through the earth by dominating the earth with the angels watching and saying, “they are manifesting God, they look like God”. Angels must be impressed with our godliness!
  • Romans 8:19-21

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

20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope.

21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God

  • The Church is the “legal agency” of God on earth. The Spirit of God must have a body to be legal on earth!
  • An agency is an organization established to provide a particular service.
  • The Church is God’s agency in earth to serve for Him from His Kingdom domain, which is the Kingdom of Heaven.
  • The Church serves as God’s DBA (doing business as), God’s representative to service the world.
  • This is why becoming a new creature in so important to your soul and spirit, along with the Kingdom of God so He can dominate and govern the earth.
  • Our soul must be converted in order to conform to being transformed. We must be transformed into Sons!
  • The Church has Kingdom officials known as “ambassadors” for Christ in the earth.
  • If you are born again, a new creature in Christ then you are a Kingdom official representing your new country – the Kingdom of God.
  • Ambassador is an accredited diplomat sent by a country as its official representative to a foreign country.
  • As a new creature everything about you becomes new, so the earth is now a foreign country to you.
  • As a new creature everything about you becomes new, so the earth is now like a foreign country that needs to be dominated and governed by the Spirit of God.
  • As a new creature we represent a government much higher and greater than any earthly, manmade officials.
  • 2 Corinthians 5:20-21

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.

  • The Church is chosen, appointed, and a called out people.
  • The Church is created as a living organism of mankind.
  • The Church as a living organism to mankind will portray the portrait and living characteristics of the Son of God to exemplify, demonstrate, and manifest the growth of the Kingdom of God, His influence and governing authority in earth through the spirit of man, individually and corporately.
  • The building is not the Church! It is a place where the diplomats of the Kingdom of God meet to discuss and minister Kingdom policies.
  • The purpose for creating the Church is to be the “administrative arm of God’s government on earth”.
  • When healing is needful for the people of God’s administration, His administrators will come and lay hands on the people and the Spirit of God will raise them up.
  • We are the agency and the Spirit of God is the Source of the healing.
  • We cannot heal anybody, but as administrators we set up the situation or set the stage for the Spirit of God and God will send the resource for their need through the administrator; and they will be healed.
  • The Church is God’s diplomatic core on earth. We represent Heaven on earth.
  • The Church is like Heavens earthly senate. When the senators agree things become law so as it is in Heaven.
  • St Matthew 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
  • The Church is the spiritual temple of God in earth with keys to the Kingdom of Heaven to lock and unlock what is locked and unlocked on earth, so that it shall be locked and unlocked in heaven.
  • The Church must be built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, with Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone. (This is referring to the Prophets of the Old Testament).
  • Ephesians 2:20-22

20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

21 In whom all the building fitly framed together growth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kingdom representation is the Church in earth

Part III

 

  1. The goal of the Church. What is the job of the Church?
  • The original and ultimate goal of God for mankind was to establish His Heavenly (the invisible) Kingdom here on earth (making it visible) through His Sons (you and I).
  • To serve as God’s agency that will call men back to their original source.
  • This is a responsibility of the individual church and or the corporate church.
  • The job of the Church is to represent the Kingdom of God and its government by calling all mankind back to God through the Spirit of Jesus, to restore their Heavenly citizenship through the Holy Spirit that dwells within, thereby establishing the Kingdom of God on earth in the presence of the world, the flesh, and the devil. This explains the entire work of the Church!
  • The Church job is to go and bring back citizenship to the people who have lost their Heavenly citizenship. Soul, souls, souls!
  • Adam’s sin cut us all off from our Heavenly citizenship. God sent Jesus to bring back the agency (the Church) to establish citizenship again, so that we all can have and enjoy the rights and privileges that are written in the Constitution (the Bible) of the Kingdom of God.
  • In essence the Church is the means and the Kingdom is the ends!
  • We are responsible for leaving our buildings (the sanctuary) to enter into every discipline of life that we work in to invite citizens back to the Kingdom which was established before the foundation of the world, so that they can defile death and live prosperously in the earth now.
  • The only way we will be successful in doing this is to serve the government of God in the earth and we must be willing to give up the knowledge of good and evil and all of what I know; all of what I’ve created without God’s government; and allow the Word of God to rid my mind, spirit, soul, and body of tradition and religion by giving God the permission to interfere with them in my life as a new creature.
  • Tradition and religion has made the leaders and believers determine to keep the Spirit of God out of their program because if truth be told we really don’t want the Spirit of God to interfere with our program. We already deny His actual power through a form of godliness, with a familiar spirit!
  • Manmade tradition and religion has exalted itself above the Law of the Spirit.
  • St Matthew 15:1-3

1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,

2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

 

 

 

 

  1. The mission of the Church.
  • Jesus’ mission was established here as God’s Divine messenger in St Luke 4:42-43

42 And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.

43 And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.

  • The messages preached today of why Jesus came is not the Good News about the Gospel of the Kingdom, but instead is of Calvary, Jesus’ death on the Cross, His birth, the Blood He shed for our Salvation, His burial, His resurrection in 3 days, and miracles, etc.
  • We are no different today from the spirit of the Pharisees, Sadducees, and the church people back in the 1st century that shouted crucify Him.
  • This is that same spirit today governing the people that won’t totally comply to the Will of God seated in high positions, in the pulpits, operating under manmade positions of authority to lord over God’s flock.
  • St Luke 8:1 And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him,
  • St Luke 12:49-53 This was Christ’s mission!
  • Jesus coming was to take back what we lost, what we gave up, what was stolen from us – dominion. And bring it back to earth!
  • The Lord wants to give us the Kingdom, not just “born again”. Born again is a part of the process.
  • The mission of the Church is to represent the government of God on earth and to serve as Ambassadors of Heaven, recruiting citizens (souls) back to the Kingdom of God.
  • Whatever area of employment you impact, you are sent there to be recruiters of citizens back to the Kingdom of God.
  • For example, we become like INS agents sent out by God to naturalize the immigrant status of those that have lost their passports and who need a passport.
  • We are not agents sent out by God to recruit those that are already citizens of the Kingdom and settle for that but for the lost citizens of the Kingdom of God for God knows who is His.

2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having the seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Part IV

  1. The ministry of the Church is to train the saints for the work of their ministry until they come into the full image of the statute of Christ.
  • We do this through the influence and authority of the Holy Spirit.
  • Influence is the capacity to have an effect on the character, behavior, and development of someone or something.
  • The Church does not go to the world, but train the Saints to go.
  • The Church does not go to the world it trains its agents to go to the world.
  • The building is not the Church! It is a place where we meet to discuss Kingdom, minister Kingdom, prophecy Kingdom, perceive the influence of the Spirit of God’s plan in strategy against the devil, etc.
  • I am/we are like “undersecretaries of state”; under shepherds that work for the government of God. Our job is to train disciples as diplomats and agents to go out and recruit people to buy into the assurance of the Kingdom of Heaven.
  • Under shepherd is the lower ranking shepherd that works under the shepherd.
  • How does the under shepherd become a Chief over under shepherds?
  • How does the under shepherd become an Overseer over the shepherd?

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

  • A mediator is one who acts as a “go between” to get people involved in agreement.
  • The Pastor is not supposed to be responsible to make altar calls, because the altar calls should be made in your area of employment as you recruit.
  • Spiritual growth is a necessity as a chosen one (the Church); as an agent, disciple, diplomat, ambassadors, etc.

Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

  • We are the diversity spiritual gifts given to the Church listed in Ephesians 4:11. Better known too many as the 5-fold ministry.
  • We are to prepare you (Church) to go out and to build the Body up through the influence and authority of the Holy Spirit, not tradition and religion, not through our feelings and their knowledge of good and evil, but to do what Ephesians 4:12 says.

Ephesians 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

  • The influences of the diversity of spiritual gifts to the Church mentioned in Ephesians 4:11. We are to:
  • Train the saints to grow in and for perfection, which is spiritual maturity.
  • Train the saints for the work of the ministry that represents the Kingdom of Heaven and not our own personal agendas or callings.
  • Train for the work of service in you for the Kingdom in earth.
  • Keep serving your gift! Your gifts of the Holy Spirit in unity as members of Christ’s body.
  • Find your gift, know your gift, and flourish in your gift until it looks like Jesus is doing it through you.
  • The assignment is to represent God to another, not as we do now represent Him to each other that already know the Spirit of God.
  • Go out as a recruiter to recruit for the Kingdom of God.
  • We are to change the thinking of the soul of man (citizens) and not let them change you.
  • When we report what the Kingdom of God is saying we say God said.
  • The true Church should only say what the Spirit of God is saying.
  • The true Church can only hear God!
  • The true Church knows how to pray in our Heavenly language to know what is going on in Heaven.
  • God does not want us to represent Him just in knowledge (information), or just in understanding (comprehension), but to demonstrate God applied through wisdom.
  • Wisdom will apply all your knowledge and understanding about God making Him God applied with all His influence and authority from Heaven manifested in earth.
  • The minute we become born again, new creatures we lost the right to our own opinion. Why? Because of the influence of the Spirit of God’s nature resting upon you to transform you back to your original identity through the heritage of your original Source.
  • The minute we become born again, new creatures we can no longer present ourselves to the world
  • The minute we become born again, new creatures we could never give a person a piece of our mind.
  • Every time people meet us as a born again, new creature they are supposed to meet Jesus.
  • The pagans at Corinth called the disciples Christians. It is a pagan word! Because they remembered that they had just killed a guy, crucified Him, but He is still all over the city again. The disciples kept representing Him!
  • As the Church, I/we represent Him now!

 

  1. The Apostle’s Doctrine
  • The very foundation that the truth of the Church was built upon.
  • Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
  • St Luke 24:44-45

44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

45 Then open he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.

  • Jesus opened up the Apostles understanding of the scriptures, and in this lies the key to correct and rightly divide the word of truth in scriptural interpretation.
  • This relationship qualified them to author and establish all doctrinal foundations of the Church.
  • These essential truths would be the foundation upon which the true church would be built on.
  • Therefore attempts to change or minimize the teachings of the Apostles are a grave error.
  • How do we know the truth from error? Galatians 1:6-9

6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

  • Pervert means to alter from its original course, meaning, or state to a distortion or corruption of what was first intended.

8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

  • This is why we should not get the duties of angels confused with the gospel that is already received through the preaching and teaching of Jesus Christ and the Apostles.

9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

  • Accursed means under a curse; eternal damnation.
  • The Apostle’s doctrine must be taught in building the Church.
  • Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Evangelist, and Teachers that would or will pervert the doctrinal teachings of the Gospel will be under a curse.
  • This also includes other clergy and even the manmade clergy’s!

1 John 4:6 agreed with Paul’s writing by saying.

6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

  • John is saying the Apostles were of God; hearing the teaching of the Apostles doctrine is equal to hearing God; the difference between the truth and error is established when we choose to teach what the Apostles taught as being truth or choose to teach anything different is error.
  • The Apostles agreed that doctrine is vital to Salvation and righteousness.
  • And we took that have taken a hold of this Gospel in oath, agree with the Spirit of God, the Holy Ghost that the Apostles doctrine is vitally important and is a necessity to/for the Salvation and righteousness to/of the soul and spirit of man.

2 Timothy 3:16

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

 

  • Profitable means beneficial; useful
  • Reproof is an expression of blame or disapproval.
  • This is why we as leaders of the Gospel of Jesus Christ must abide by and in the Word of God in Spirit and in Truth.

 

2 Timothy 4:2-4

2 Preach the word, be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

 

  • Instant means urgent; pressing
  • Reprove means reprimand or censure someone
  • Rebuke means to express sharp disapproval or criticism of someone because of their behavior or actions.
  • Exhort means to strongly encourage or urge someone to do something.

 

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

 

  • Believers are turning away from the truth for a story that consist of jokes and gestures that pertain to the Gospel.
  • They would rather you joke with them about the Church through a “so-called spiritual comedian” than to take on the responsibility and be held accountable for their wrong behavior and attitude revealed through the Word toward the Spirit of God and one another.
  • Be not deceived for God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7
  • Mock means tease or laugh at in a scornful or contemptuous manner.

 

  • Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
  • The KJV Amplified said “the faith which is that sum of Christian belief which was delivered verbally to the holy people of God”.
  • Exhort is to strongly encourage or urge someone to do something
  • Earnestly means with sincere and intense conviction; seriously
  • Contend means to engage in competition or campaign in order to win or achieve something.
  • The truth of God is built on the teachings of Jesus the Christ, which was and is handed down to His Apostles, even the Apostles today.
  • Satan attempts to minimize the importance and value of sound doctrine. This seed of doubt was planted in the words spoken in the Garden by the serpent, “Yea, hath God said?”
  • Sound means unbroken; not shaky, split, or defective; un-decayed; whole; perfect; founded in truth; firm; strong; valid; right; correct.
  • The attack on the apostolic doctrine goes like this: There are no more Apostles other than the original ones that walk, talked, and ate with Jesus! God is using the Bishop to supplement for the office of the Apostle and they carry the spirit of the twelve Apostle. Who said that? Where is it written? Either you are an Apostle or a Bishop! Why? Because the function and operations are different.

 

  • There is no way you can commit to Jesus the Christ without being committed to the Biblical Doctrine of the Christ as set forth in the Gospel accounts.
  • The doctrine taught and preached by the faithful Apostles of Jesus the Christ in the 1st century A.D. is the foundation of the New Testament Church, along with the Prophets of the Old Testament, with Jesus the Christ being the Chief cornerstone.
  • Ephesians 2:19-22

19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

21 In whom all the building fitly framed together growth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

  • In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

 

  • We are now fellow citizens with the saints (the Body of Christ) and the Household of God (the Kingdom of Heaven) and built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, with Jesus the Christ being the Chief cornerstone.

 

  • St John 7:17-18

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.

18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him.

 

  • St John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
  • Those that will come into the fold and believe on Christ Jesus through the words of the Apostles.

 

  • Psalm 11:3 If the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
  • What word is your foundation built upon? Evaluate the construction of your spiritual foundation, not anyone else but yours first.
  • The Word of God is the basis for all truth.
  • The original Apostles were the only men that had an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. They set at His feet for 3 ½ years and before His ascension He gave them perfect understanding of the Scriptures (St Luke 24:45), to include the Old Testament too.
  • These initial truths would be the foundation upon which the true church would be built upon with Jesus Christ being the Chief corner stone.
  • Initial meaning existing or occurring at the beginning.
  • Doctrine is vital to Salvation and righteousness.
  • Anyone that preaches and teaches what the Apostles taught and preached has the truth of God.
  • Anyone who deviates from the teachings of the Apostles is in error.
  • The scriptures reveal to us is that to hear the spiritual teachings of the Apostles is to hear the very words of Jesus Christ, as though we are right there also in the spirit to hear.
  • We must continue in the Apostles doctrine and in doing so we will save both ourselves and those that will hear us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. The Kingdom of God
  • Kingdom means governing authority.
  • A Kingdom is the governing influence of a King over His territories, impacting it with His Will, His purpose, and His intent.
  • The Kingdom of God means that God’s Kingdom, the Kingdom of Heaven is dominating an area.
  • God will stay in Heaven and impact the earth without coming here.
  • The Church is not the Kingdom
  • The Church is the agency on earth that represents the Kingdom government of God.
  • The Church is the local governmental counsel on earth to represent the Heavenly government of the Kingdom.
  • The Kingdom of God is any domain where the ruler ship influence and authority of God is in effect.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven is a place where God lives.
  • The Kingdom of God is an influence.
  • Influence is the capacity to have an effect on the character, behavior, and development of someone or something.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven is the headquarters of where God’s Throne is.
  • The Kingdom of God is the influence of that country on territories.
  • We have to know something about kingdoms. People born in American know very little about kingdoms because we were born in a democracy.
  • This is why studying the Bible from a democratic concept will always distort the scriptures because the Bible is about a King, not a president.
  • Jesus Christ taught about a Kingdom, not a republic.
  • The Kingdom of God is the invisible spiritual Kingdom of God within you.

St Luke 17:20-21

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! For, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.

  • The Kingdom of God is in the Holy Spirit, the influencer, the governor within you.

St John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.

  • Jesus was making it known and clear to Nicodemus if you don’t have the Holy Ghost you cannot enter into the Kingdom God.

Romans 14:17-18

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

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

 

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

  • The Kingdom of God is not just talk; it is having dynamic influence.
  • It’s not just something just to say from a topic of reasoning or motive, but with evidence that things have changed in you.
  • They see that you changed your way of dress; they see your attitude, language, friendship, have changed so that you have stopped doing things against the Kingdom.
  • The proof that you are in the Kingdom of God is your evidence of its power that you are living a different culture.
  • This is why it’s hard to believe when some say they believe in Jesus and nothing has changed, especially when they are still drinking, cussing, partying, fornicating, lying, sowing discord, etc.
  • It’s not a matter of talk; it’s a matter of dynamic change.

 

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 Kingdom of God is for the citizens of God’s Kingdom.
  • Citizens of God’s Kingdom must possess the Spirit of the Kingdom. It is a must have!

 

The difference between the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God

  • The Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God are different dimensions of Kingdom.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven whenever mentioned by Jesus or Paul is referring to the place where God is ruler and King over that territory.
  • For example, when we tell people where we are from city/state, we are not talking about the government. We are simply talking about the place of where we are from and not the government of that place.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven is the domain of Heaven where the King, which is God Himself, rules and He reigns.
  • The Kingdom of Heaven is a domain. It is actually a territory, a place.
  • In this domain God exercises power and authority over that territory. It is where God has “direct influence, control, and ruler ship”.

 

In Closing,

  • The Kingdom cannot be stopped
  • The Kingdom cannot be contained
  • The Kingdom cannot be controlled
  • The Kingdom cannot be bought with money
  • The Kingdom cannot be stopped by a religion.
  • The Kingdom exposes the true nature of religion and creates a conflict.
  • You can stop a religion.
  • You can stop the spreading of religion by making laws against it.
  • You can stop a religion, because religion has to do with rituals, activities and people dealing with different traditions.
  • You can put limits on religion.
  • You can even buy off religion.
  • The Kingdom of God is for all cultures. It’s for everybody!
  • The Kingdom of God is permanent! Persecution from religion is an attempt to terminate to destroy it, but the Kingdom cannot be destroyed and never will be terminated.

 

 

 

 

  • Let the Kingdom come to dominate the earth.
  • The Kingdom of God is an asset to the community, to the nation, because it comes to solve the problems.
  • The Kingdom of God changes the environment
  • Every person healed will be a relief from society and its system.
  • When the Kingdom is present it attracts people. It attracted Simon the sorcerer, Acts 8:9-13.

Acts 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the Kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

  • 94% of the Houses preach what Jesus did and not what He said do.

 

 

Amen
