What we desire, we acquire.

Our life is governed and controlled by what we value.  Those things we value most occupy most of our time and energy.  Those things we value least are things that are generally ignored.  I am assuming that everyone has placed a very high value on Knowing God.  Notice the extremes in the Scriptures regarding things we value (love) and things we devalue (don’t care about).

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ…   Phil 3:8

When Paul explained his Value System, he said compared to Knowing Christ, everything else he counted as loss and considered them nothing more than dung (nice word for a commonly used expletive).  Jesus touched on the vast chasm between Loving God and even loving family members…

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. Lu 14:26

Compared to the Value placed on Loving God, the value placed on loving family members is almost off the page in the opposite direction.  Knowing God (really “knowing” in an intimate, intense and complete way) is the key to receiving and releasing the Gifts and Callings that have been given to us.

Knowing God is the way to receive “all things that pertain to life and godliness…”

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge (epignosis: knowing with understanding) of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 2Pe 1:3 

He made known his ways (methods) unto Moses, his acts (deeds) unto the children of Israel.  Ps 103:7 

Understanding the “Ways” of God comes from Knowing God.

Understanding the “Acts” of God comes from Knowing About God.

 

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation (a disclosure of Truth) in the knowledge (epignosis: knowing with understanding) of him. Eph 1:17

It’s up to you.

  • You will never do what you do not decide to do.
  • You will never get what you do not decide to get.
  • You will never get what you do not make up your mind to get.
  • You will never receive what you are not committed to receive.

It is up to you.   God has given it.  Jesus has paid for it with His Blood.  Now, refuse to waver, to be moved aside, to take your eyes off your goal.  Refuse to back down. Refuse to compromise.  Refuse to be nice to the devil.

Refuse to “calm down” or “understand”… Be determined… get mad and be violent.  The “Kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent take it by force…”   (Mat 11:12).

Just how mad are you at the devil?  How determined are you to take back what he has stolen?  How ferocious are you in this pursuit?  How enraged are you at the deeds of the devil and the kingdom of darkness? How much do demonic forces fear your resolve to overcome?

“Let not the sun go down on your wrath…”  In other words this can mean “Never let the sun go down on being mad at the devil….”

The ONLY legitimate avenue to release your wrath is to release it on the powers of darkness.

 

Get mad

Joshuas

In this hour, God is raising up “Joshuas” to lead His people into the fullest realization of their Spiritual Inheritance.

They are commissioned to take His People into their Promised Land.  The “promised land” is not death.  The “promised land” is not heaven.  It is not the “sweet by and by…”

The Land of Promise is the Place of Total Provision the Blood of Jesus has purchased for every believer and for all time.

God wants us in there.  God wants us moving out of the desert of death and do-nothing and into the land of Milk and Honey.

Are you there?  Have you gotten in yet?  Are you flourishing and feasting and overcoming?  Are you out of sickness and into health?  Are you out of poverty and into wealth?  Are you out of worry and into peace?  Are you out of fear and into faith?

Don’t stay stuck on the wrong side of Jordan.

 

Today is your moving day

Faith produces Resurrection Life.

It produces the same kind of Life Jesus had (and still has) when He came out of the grave.

But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal (death-doomed) bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you…  Rom 8:11

Supernatural Faith moves the believer into the realm of Resurrection Life.   We are no longer in the grave-yard stage or the mortuary stage, we are in the Life Stage… the Supernatural Life stage… The Eternal Life stage!

Supernatural faith negates the power of death and energizes the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus (Rom 8).

It is by this law that every believer should live.  And if they do, they will be continually swallowed up in victory.

 

… Death is swallowed up in victory.   1Cor 15:54

There is a much broader dimension of the Word than most people realize.

The Word of God is not just the Bible.  The Bible is the written inspired, infallible document that is the written Word of God but the Word of God existed before there was a written document called the Holy Bible.

John writes that “in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God…”   God’s Word transcends the Bible.   God’s Word was existent before there was a Bible.

How can we know what God said if it is not written down for us to read and know?  We can know what God said by knowing what God would say.  We can know what God would say by knowing the Nature and Character of God.

God speaks in agreement with His Character, His Nature, and His Personality.   If we know His Character, we will know what He will say or did say…  And we discover and know His Character by receiving revelation knowledge regarding Christ.   Because Jesus is the Perfect and Completed Revelation of Who God is, What God is like and What God does and will do.

 

if you have seen me, you have seen the Father…  John 14:9

Put off the Lie.   Eph 4:25

  • satan never operates in truth.
  • he is a victim of the lie himself.
  • he was dumb enough to believe that he could be equal with God.
  • he was deceived into believing that he could rule heaven.
  • he is the father of the Lie and he is the author of the Lie.

Hell is the result of the Lie.

The world system functions by the Lie.

The cosmos is fueled by the Lie.

The fallen human race is cursed by the Lie.

Every evil known to man is conceived in the Lie.

The Lie produces death.  The Lie produces misery.  The Lie produces hopelessness.  The Lie causes pain, and defeat.  The Lie is the nature of satan, the driving force of all demons and the ultimate enemy of the Word of God.

Every failure is the result of the Lie.  Every heartache.  Every addiction.  Every divorce. Every abortion.  Every sickness.  Every defeat.  Every conflict.  Every misunderstanding.  Every broken relationship.  The Lie is every thing in thought or deed that defies the Character and Nature of our Loving Heavenly Father.

PUT OFF THE LIE.  Resist it.  Refuse to believe it.  Deny it.  Hate it.  Never listen to it or give place to it.  The Lie put Jesus on the Cross.  The Lie put Jesus in the Tomb.  The Lie put Jesus in hell.  But TRUTH brought Him out!

The Truth is the antithesis of the lie. The Truth is the death of the lie.  The Truth delivers from the effects  and the results of the lie.  The Truth produces freedom.  Deliverance. Victory.  And Real Life.  Eternal Life.

 

And you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free   John 8:32
