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

We are not what we were.

Yesterday.  Last Week.  Last Year.  10 minutes ago.  We are changing.  We are growing.  We are conforming more and more to the Image of Jesus.

God’s New Creation Army are Champions.   Achievers.   Overcomers.   Supernatural Men and Women and Children.  More than Conquerors.   That’s us.  That’s you and me.

  • We are invincible to the forces of darkness.
  • We live in health and prosperity and we walk in constant victory.
  • We are New Creation Men and Women.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  2Cor. 5:17

We live by God’s Law of Life and we have been set free from the law of sin and death.  Sin, satan and failure have no dominion over us.

  • We know who we are where we are going.
  • We are not moved by fear or doubt or unbelief.
  • We walk by faith and live by faith.
  • We are a “Peculiar People” and Royalty through our Blood Line.

We are the Ones who will rule and run and reign on the earth in this emerging hour… we are the end-time army destined to defeat and destroy the works of darkness and the powers of the kosmos.

God has waited long and patiently for us to be birthed and developed.  He has Plans for us.  He has Provisions for us.  He has Power for us.

Our Time has come.

Your Time has come.

 

It is NOW

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

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

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

God’s Power is adequate but it can be limited.

God is Able but God can be Limited.  God can do all things but God can be prevented from working.  Jesus could do no mighty works in one place because of unbelief.

 And He did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief… Mat 13:58

Unbelief is anti-God and anti-Christ.  Unbelief limits God’s Power and God’s Ability.  Unbelief restrains God in His desire to work for you.

Even though God could… and God would… unbelief and doubt will prevent God from doing it.

Many believers are hindered and kept out of victory because of their own unbelief.  So are churches, denominations, and honest, good and sincere people.

In a sense, it is not necessarily true to declare that “God can do anything…”  He has the Power to do anything, but that power can be hindered, limited and restrained by unbelief and doubt.

 

God’s effective, operative power depends on us

When Joshua was at Jericho, victory did not come until the 7th Day.  (Josh 6:15).

I’m sure many would like to have the victory on the first circuit.  If it was five miles around the city, I’m sure many were ready to quit the first day.  But then there was the second. Another five miles.    And the third.  Another five miles.  The fourth.  Another five miles.  Fifth.  Another five miles.  And the sixth.  Another five miles.

How many grew weary in the process?  This has been a thirty mile ordeal.  After all, how much does God expect of me anyhow?  There must be an easier way.  I think I have a “better idea.”  Who has a “new revelation”?   And now it is the Sabbath and seven times around… that’s thirty-five more miles.  Unreasonable.

A total of sixty miles.  Utterly ridiculous.

No wonder others had a “better idea” or a “higher revelation.”

Obedience means sacrifice.  No Cross means no Crown.  No diligence yields no victory.  Many have grown weary and have tired along the way.

 

When victory is one day ahead and one lap away
