Charging Up From A Fall

Anyone who has walked with the Lord for any length of time will tell you that the mountain top experiences do not nullify your ability to fall and require God’s forgiveness of sin. Paul rebuked Peter for being racist, if you translate what happens today. Peter a Jew by birth demanded Gentiles to behave like the Jews, as if, ones birthright gives someone access to heaven and not that everyone requires Jesus. Peter forsook the Lord Jesus three times and the sins of David are numerous. What we find is their unrelenting fervor to return back to God again and again. They make it a habit to stay in God’s face.

If you are going to walk with Jesus and have power with God, it will require an ignoring of the devils desire to get you to quit and a fervor that makes up ones mind to seek the Lord again with everything that you have. When you fail to pray on a daily basis, you limit the power of God in your life. When you fail to worship God daily, you limit the power of God in your life. The Lord created us to worship him. He has around the clock in heaven creatures that only have one job. That job is to cry Holy, Holy, Holy, which was and is to come the Lord God Almighty. Our job is to make the earth look like heaven. The best way to get God’s attention is through worship. Worship before prayer. Create an atmosphere that is similar to heaven in your home. Worship God.

When you worship God he fills the temple (you). When you worship God you overflow with new wine. When you worship God, you become more like him. He transforms the worshiper, while you worship. Train yourself to worship God.

For those familiar with Dragon Ball Z will appreciate the analogy of Goku and a normal Christian growing in God.

What we have here is the different stages of Goku. The first he is normal and then becomes a super saiyan, next super siayan 2 and then super saiyan 3.

His final stage is super saiyan god.

For each phase his training is intense, but also the enemies he faces pushes him into the next level. Every level he attains, invites greater threats to his life and his family. So he trains even harder. Never discouraged by the challenge, but intent on overcoming it. His power dwells within himself. Now if you are a believer in Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit within you is your power. Your power is within yourself. Not in a humanistic fashion, but God dwells on the inside of you.

Jesus replied to the Pharisees, “Is it not written in your Law: ‘I have said you are gods’ ? Peter’s shadow healed people. The same God then is doing the same thing today, but it requires the believer in Jesus to train himself in the art of making love to God through worship. The harder you train, the more power you will attain.

Rest Your Faith On God’s Power

2774832-goku_2
My message and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, s
o that your faith would not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).

As a Christian you should always be about the power of God. Jesus taught his disciples how to move with power when they shared the good news that the grace  of God through Jesus had come and the gift of the Holy Spirit was accessible to those who believed. The Holy Spirit within a man or woman will produce good fruit in that vessel. They will demonstrate supernatural gifts and will walk with wisdom toward those that are without. They will have the ability to discern spiritual things.

When a man or woman is fleshly they will hang their hang their hat on intellect, but will deny God’s power (speaking in tongues, prophecy, healing). They will glory in the admiration of men and will never answer the simple question. How come your life is different from the Master (Jesus)? How come you don’t operate in the same power that Jesus did when the Bible records that signs and wonders would follow those who believe? How come so many people love you, when Jesus and his disciples were persecuted and martyred? Are you stronger than  Jesus?

No beloved. These men are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Never forget, it was the church that had Jesus killed in his day. The church brought Jesus to Rome for their death penalty may be used to kill him.

As a person seeking the truth, never be satisfied with simple intellect, because it will fail you when real test come and try you. Many are called, but few or chosen. Few find eternal life. Rest Your Faith On God’s Power.

Preachers Preaching Without Paul’s Demonstration or Jesus

Fat lazy guy on the couch
You may have noticed that today’s preachers have no power. Either a pseudo-power of false prophecies and voodoo magic that leaves the person in a worse state after demons get through destroying their emotions and body or intellectual preachers that have academic vernacular, but cannot cast out demons, lay hands on the sick, but still claim that you need to be like Jesus. Did not Jesus do those things?

You must stir up the gifts of God. The confusion comes when one thinks because they have decided to serve this awesome God, who can do anything that he will. He will not. God has given his creatures a mind and a map and says to us, figure it out. He will step in and guide, but for the most part you are on your own. He designed it that way. He created Eve in the Garden of Eden so that Adam would have a partner in the navigation process. If God wanted to be that involved with us, he would not have created Eve. Eve is a purposeful distraction, while God sits back and looks at his fish in the fish bowl. He gives the obstacles as the grand designer and we figure out based upon his map our next move.

Why did I say all that? The reason you can have a pastor preach month after month and year after year without any demonstration like Paul is because people are puffed up with mans wisdom and not God’s. Take for instance the white Christian church, which boast millions of members and yet racism in the US is prevalent. Black churches are not the cause of the division, the color thing was started by white so-called Christians, but how? Because the gospel that is preached is without power. All words and no power. Why? Because God grants power to those who love. Love is the foundation for God’s power. You can exegete and use hermeneutics, but without love, you will not have any POWER.

If every leader in the New Testament Church demonstrates power and your pastor does not, it is because he is not serving the God of the Bible. You cannot teach something and not produce its fruit, if what you are teaching is in your heart. It all starts with the love of God in ones heart. No love and no power. Divorce happens because no love no power to stay married. Get love in and produce love for others and God grants the power.

How do I get the love in? Set your “AFFECTIONS” on things above. Is your conversation more about what you plan to do on earth or what you plan to do when you get to heaven? Are you more focused on the end of life or its middle and beginning? This will reveal if your affections are set properly and if you find they are not, you must begin a Bible binge reading session until the Word overflows in your heart and you literally feel the love of God pouring out. When you read, you make sure you have a yes I will obey attitude. You will struggle with some things in the Word, but you must submit and say within yourself Yes Lord Jesus I will follow.

P.S.

Don’t be confused by those who give either. Most rich people have charitable organizations. Why? It makes them more money. They are the CEO’s of the charity and as such will receive a tithe from the money given from people poorer then them. The motivation isn’t love, but deception and all rich pastors fall into this as the New Testament church is one where all members have the same sufficiency. Don’t expect your rich pastor to teach you about Peter, who had power to cast out demons and heal the sick, to teach you God’s real economics. Rich pastors are like other secular rich people and use charity as another tool for the portfolio.

Christian’s Are Not Called To Run From Bad News

Christian

Jesus said, “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world” (John 17:15-18). “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me” (John 17:20-21).

You may have noticed that my blog is filling with news clips of horrific crimes against humanity, you may be tempted to fear or hide your head in the sand, but that would be to disobey God. God has not kept you on this planet to run from society and hide, but to change it with the message of the truth. Way too many Christians think only of themselves and don’t take any time to pray for anyone outside of their immediate family.

Our way of life, as we know it, is becoming increasingly difficult. Wickedness is prospering. The murderer is prospering. The rapist and peadophile is prospering. If men can be with men and women with women, how can anyone really discriminate against the rapist or peadophile? Both have a genuine feeling for that person. What law prevents your cat and dog from being defiled with man. Nothing, but the Christian in prayer and sharing the message of truth and your testimony of salvation.

We know that wickedness will eventually overtake the Christian and we will seemingly lose the battle as our heads will be placed on platters for the world to mock us. It has been prophesied, but until then we must continue to contend for the faith delivered to us by the disciples of Jesus. We must war and fight against our flesh, demons, and fallen angels by the power of the Holy Spirit.

You have not been given a spirit of fear, but LOVE, SOUND MIND, & POWER!
