Knowing the Will of God


Phil. 1:6   Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:  

Rom. 8:28   And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Eph. 3:11   According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

 prothesis {proth’-es-is}

1) a setting forth of a thing, placing of it in view.

2) a purpose

Eph. 5:17   Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

thelema {thel’-ay-mah}

1) what one wishes or has determined shall be done

   1a) of the purpose of God to bless mankind through Christ

   1b) of what God wishes to be done by us

       1b1) commands, precepts

2) will, choice, inclination, desire, pleasure

1Tim. 2:3 -4  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Jer. 1:5   Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Jer. 29:11   For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

There is an “obvious” Will that we know from what the Bible says.  There is a Will that is “not so obvious” that comes from our Relationship with Jesus.

It is not on what we spend the greatest amount of time that molds us the most, but whatever exerts the most power over us.  The disciple who abides in Jesus is the will of God, and what appears to be his free choices are actually God’s foreordained decrees.

                                                                                          Oswald Chambers

What is your Destination?     Where are you headed?  What direction are you traveling in?  What is the fulfilled objective of your life? 

            God has a purpose.  God has a Will.  God’s Purpose is your Destination… your Reason for Being Born.   God’s Will is how you get there… how you accomplish it.    Everything God does He does “on purpose” and “for a purpose.”  Nothing that God has ever done was done “by accident.”  God has a Plan and God has a Purpose.  We are in His unfolding Plan.  This earth is in His unfolding Plan.  This church is in His unfolding Plan.  YOU are in His unfolding Plan. The Purpose of God WILL TAKE  PLACE.    No man can stop it.  No demon can stop it.  No nation can stop it.  No government can stop it.  The devil can’t stop it.  Hell cannot stop it.  It WILL HAPPEN.   You must be convinced that God has an ETERNAL PURPOSE for YOU..  When you discover exactly what that purpose is, and it becomes a REVELATION to you..  Hallelujah..

            Paul writes concerning the Eternal Purpose of God in the Book of Ephesians.  Remember, God has never had but ONE PURPOSE.  That purpose has been and still is an ETERNAL PURPOSE.  While most of the world is caught up in the temporal and the transient and the carnal and the natural… God is looking at the ETERNAL, the SPIRITUAL and the SUPERNATURAL.   All Creation is anxiously awaiting the fulfillment of the Eternal Purpose of God.  Angels and spirit beings and heaven is anxiously awaiting the fulfillment of the Eternal Purpose of God. 

            I want to know God’s purpose for me. 

            I want you to know God’s purpose for you. 

            I want to know God’s Purpose for this church.

            We were born for a purpose and we were brought into the Kingdom for a purpose.  We are alive today and we are here today for a purpose.  You  are in this church for a purpose.  You are where you are spiritually for a purpose.  You will discover this truth if you will listen closely to this teaching.  You will know it and you will rejoice in it BECAUSE IT IS GOOD.  It is better than you can imagine.  And it is happening NOW.   When you discover God’s Purpose you can purpose to do the same thing.  This places you in agreement with God.  When you are in agreement with God you are automatically in disagreement with the devil.  When your purpose is the same as God’s purpose you have all the POWER OF HEAVEN with you..  When your purpose is the same as God’s purpose, you are hooked up to heaven and plugged into Miracle Power.  You are, in effect, walking with God.  When you walk with God you are in agreement with Him and when you are in agreement with Him you can “ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you..”   This keeps you in the place of authority and power and control.  It gives you strength to do what needs to be done.  This is exactly what Paul meant when he said:  “now unto Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us.”  The “power that worketh in us” is the Power of Heaven that is released when we walk in agreement with the Will of God.

            There are four areas we want to explore.  We want to explore and discover (1) God’s Eternal Purpose for Man, (2) God’s Eternal Purpose for the Church, (3) God’s Eternal Purpose for the Earth and (4) God’s Eternal Purpose for Eternity. 

            God’s purpose is like a road map.  We are born at point “A” and God wants us to arrive at point “B.”  Point “B” represents God’s Purpose for us.  Point “A” is where we start.  The Way to get from Point “A” to Point “B” is the Will of God.  We know that the shortest and quickest route from point A to point B is a straight line.  If we flow in the Wll of God, this is always the route we take.  However, most of us do not always flow in the will of God.  We get distracted.  We get sidetracked.  We get off course.  Often we just get lost on the way.  (diagram)   

I.  God’s Will for YOU.

            God’s heart has never changed.  His heart has always been inclined toward man.  It is now and it always has been.  Man was originally created in order that God might have a family.  God wanted companionship.  God wanted fellowship.  God wanted relationship.  God wants to be loved more than He wants to be God.  God wanted to have a family to love and to bless and to keep unto Himself.   God wants to have children that will reciprocate His love.  God is Love, God loves and God wants to be loved..  Do you realize that God made the heavens solely for the benefit of earth? Do you know that God made the earth solely for the benefit of man?  Can you believe that God created all animal life and plant life solely for the benefit of man?  Everything and all things that God created by His power,  were and are created for the benefit of man.     And God made man for Himself.   All of creation is designed to sustain human life.  Scientists are now beginning to recognize that the entire universe has been created and calibrated to support and sustain human life. The original Plan God had is still the same.  It is the Eternal Purpose of God for man.  Even though Satan entered and Adam sinned and death was brought into the earth, God has Eternally Purposed for Man to be His Own.  The Bible says that “God is not willing that any should perish  (lose, be defeated, be lost),  but that all should come to repentance…”     Now, how does man come into the family of God?  Man becomes a child of God only through the NEW BIRTH.  Therefore, we may conclude that God’s Eternal Purpose for man is FIRST that man might be Saved. 

            God’s Will is for you to BE SAVED.    God wants the entire human race to be birthed into His family.  God purposes for man to be SAVED.   POTENTIALLY the entire human race (both born and unborn) were redeemed from sin when Jesus died on the cross.   What is involved in salvation?  God has a part and man has a part.  God’s part is called REGENERATION and man’s part is called REPENTANCE.  When we repent of our sin and believe in our heart that Jesus is Messiah and when we openly and unashamedly confess our heart-belief, we are BORN AGAIN.  God impregnated us (natural man)with His Life and we are made Supernatural men..  God’s Life comes into us along with all of God’s Characteristics and we become the Sons of God..  “But as many as received Him to them gave He power to become the Sons of God…”  John 1:12.  God’s Life comes into you, God’s Power comes into you, God’s Authority comes into you, God’s Love comes into you, God’s Faith comes into you, God’s Very Nature comes into you…. You are made “in the image” of God..  And you conform to the Image of Jesus Christ, God’s First-Begotten… 

Hallelujah..

            God’s Will is for you to receive the  Baptism of the Holy Ghost.   This never was supposed to be an “option” for the Believer.  It is a command..  “Be not drunk with wine wherein is excess, but be filled with the Spirit…”  Gal. 5:18. 

The first Believers were Baptized in the Holy Spirit. 

The Early Church was Baptized in the Holy Spirit. 

John the Baptist was Filled with the Holy Ghost in his mother’s womb. 

The Spirit of God came down from heaven in the form of a dove and Filled Jesus at His water Baptism. 

Paul was Baptized in the Holy Ghost when Ananias laid hands on him. 

When Peter preached to the household of Cornelius the Word declares: “While Peter yet spoke these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word, and they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.  For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God…”  Acts 10:44-46.

The Baptism of the Holy Ghost is the PURPOSE of God for every Believer.  Any church or any denomination or any preacher or any teacher or any pastor who refuses to teach this truth is guilty of violating the PURPOSE of GOD.  Every Believer needs the baptism.  It is essential for effective Spiritual Warfare.  It is essential for tapping into Heaven’s Power.  It is essential for effective praying.  It is essential for moving into the Supernatural…. It is the Purpose of God for every Believer to be Baptized in the Holy Ghost.  Hallelujah.

            God’s Will is for you to live in Divine Health.  God wants you healed.  If you are sick, you are out of the will of God.  It is the purpose and intent of Almighty God that you get healed, stay healed and walk in Divine Health.  Sickness is not the will of God.  God does not put sickness on anybody.  God does not use sickness to teach you a lesson. God never stoops to employ satan’s tactics and methods to bring any of His Children “in line.”  Just as God purposes for you to be free from sin’s condemnation and guilt and judgment, He also purposes for you to be healed of all sicknesses, diseases and infirmities.  Listen to Isaiah 53: 5:  “But He (Jesus) was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed…”  This Purpose of God for you is restated in I Peter 2:24: “Who His own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed…”  God wants you well.  God has sent His Word to heal you and he has brought you to this place so that you might discover that this is His Divine Purpose for you and your seed.  Hallelujah.

            God’s Will is for you to be Free from Sin’s Control.  You need to know that God wants you to live free from sin’s dominion.  It is His purpose for you to totally free from anything and all things that satan designs against you.  The Bible declares that “sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under the law but under grace…”  Romans 6:14.  You do not have to live under the control and dominion of the devil.  If he is manipulating you and your family and your marriage and your finances and your mind and emotions, you are missing the Purpose of God for you.  Jesus has defeated the devil once and for all and you do not have to sin.  You do not have to live controlled by the devil or the devices of the devil.  Jesus came to set you free and He did.  If you have gone back into bondage, I have good news for you…  you do not have to stay there.  You can, with God’s help and by the Promise of His Word, be FREE right now.   And you can stay free once you get free.  God’s Purpose for you is for you to be free from sin’s control and dominion…. will you purpose to agree with God’s purpose?  Then do it NOW.

            God’s Will is for you to PROSPER .   This means that God wants you to be in charge.  For you to be living in and walking in success and prosperity.   It is God’s Will for every believer to walk in the high places of the earth. 

You were born into a Kingdom of success and power.  You have been given all the information you need to live in success and prosperity. 

            You have been challenged to move into the dimension of the Kingdom of God where you are the head and not the tail… above and not beneath… strong and not weak…. well and not sick… glad and not sad…  rich and not poor… where you live the life of a Conqueror.  God wants you taking back what satan has stolen.  God wants you treading on the head of the serpent.  God wants you to kill your giant and move into your promised land.   God purposes that you Live…  no matter who you are, where you are, how old you are, how educated you are…. it is written in the changeless and eternal Word that God has plans for your success and prosperity.  God want to use you to finance Kingdom Work.  God wants to showcase you as the blessed because of your obedience.  It is the Purpose of God for every Believer to live in and enjoy heaven’s blessings on earth.  Do you want this?  Are you willing to line your life up with the Word of God?  Will you walk in obedience to His commands?  Can you crucify your flesh and renew your mind and control your tongue?  Say YES..  Then DO IT..  Hallelujah..

            It is God’s Will for you and me take the Gospel of the Kingdom to the Nations of the earth.  The final command and commission Jesus gave to the Church was the command and commission to take the Gospel to the nations of the earth.  While we have been looking at communities and cities and states with our vision for evangelism… God looks at the Whole World… the Nations of the earth… the kindreds, and tongues, and nations… the islands of the sea and the peoples of this planet.  Some may grow weary of our continual emphasis on missions.  It has been brought to my attention that a few feel that we might be top-heavy with our vision for the Russian People and our commitment to go and teach and preach and plant churches over there.   I must remind you that when our mission vision dries up and our attention is focused on us and ours and me and mine and this church only, we are violating the Eternal Purpose of God.  If you want to live in Divine Providence and Protection and Favor, you must have the heart of God for the Nations of the earth.  God has raised up this ministry to seed the Word into the World… this was spoken to my heart over twenty years ago when we were in the throes of conflict over the Doctrine of the Holy Spirit…. God promised me that this church would one day touch the entire world with the Word of God.  He promised me that He had set before us an “open door” and no man, movement, demon or devil would ever be able to close it..  He has honored this Word to me and it is presently being fulfilled… we have not entered into the fullest measure of fulfillment yet, but we are on the way..  Hallelujah..  Therefore, if you desire the continued blessings of God and Favor of God on you and us… then agree with His Eternal Purpose to take the Gospel to the Nations of the Earth….

            It is God’s Will for you and me to Pull Down the strongholds of the devil and take back what he has stolen.  You and I have been royally ripped off by hell.  We have lived in ignorance.  We have been poisoned by false teaching.  We have been blinded by religion.  We have been lied to, spied on, deceived, tricked, ripped off and almost ruined by the powers of darkness.  We did not know any better.  We thought what was happening to us was the “Will of God”… We did not understand Spiritual Warfare and we did not know about the Authority of every Believer.  But we know now..  We are prepared and we are equipped.  We are strong and we are mad.  It is time to attack.  The devil has been like Saddam Hussein… he has thumbed his nose at us, he has taunted us and teased us,  he has invaded sacred territory and with great belligerence ridiculed the church, the Bible, Believers and the Holy Ghost. 

I say, satan has gravely miscalculated and is now about to be put in his place by a Company of Believers who have had enough..  Enough is enough..  It is time to stop standing still… it is time to attack.  Let’s charge into satan’s territory and take back what he has illegally taken from you and from me and from the church..  It is the Eternal Purpose of God for the Church to give the devil hell..  The command to attack has been given and it is a command that will not be ignored or disobeyed..  Hallelujah..
