Confrontation.

And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?  Mat. 21:10

And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. Mat. 21:11

Praise rang out.  Crowds gathered.  A parade took place.  Rejoicing was everywhere.  The King had come to town.  This was a divine convergence of time and eternity.

In time, God foreordained that Jesus would enter into the sphere of human existence.   In eternity, God planned for the redemption of the fallen human race.  And now, time and eternity came into a divine convergence…. they meet.  They intersect.  They collide.

I believe we are at a similar place.  Time, today, is converging with eternity.  Just as Jesus came “in the fullness of time” we are coming into another fullness of time and it will shortly blend in with eternity.

The temporal is about to become eternal.  This is why this moment is so crucial.  This is the reason the anointing is mounting and the glory of God is rising.  This is the reason behind Revival.  This is the reason behind our Praying.  Our Intercession.  We are at The Place.  We are in The Time.  There is once again a Divine Convergence of Time with Eternity.  We are There.

 

A Contemporary Confrontation with God

Faith and facts.

Truth, which is activated by Faith, is more powerful than Facts.  Facts are activated by reason.   Faith was present before Facts existed.  Faith gave birth to facts.  The Faith of God produced the Fact of Creation.  Faith always takes precedence over facts.  Truth has more power than Facts.  When the Word (Truth) is mixed with Faith it becomes Revelation.  It becomes Wisdom.  It becomes the primary force that functions in the Spiritual World.

Truth is Spiritual.  Facts are natural.  Truth is “unseen” Facts are “seen.”  Truth is understood by Faith, Facts are understood by Reason.  Truth is the functioning force in the unseen Spiritual World; Facts are the functioning force in the visible Natural World.  What we believe and how we believe determines which “World” we live in.

When we Believe with the Heart… we are making a decision to live by Faith.  By trusting God.  Living by Revelation.  By the Rhema Word.  By understanding.  By KNOWING.

This enables us to discern the difference between the Truth and Facts.  When facts contradict Truth we disregard the facts and choose to believe the Truth.  And we continue to believe the Truth until the Truth becomes a fact.

 

Faith creates facts

Behold Jesus as a Perfect Man

ALL the miracles that Jesus performed while He was on earth were performed by a Human Being Full of the Holy Ghost and Power.  What He did… we can do.  What He accomplished as a Man, we can accomplish as men and women full of the Holy Ghost and living in that anointing.

He spoke to storms and they stopped.  He spit and made mud from it, put it on blind eyes and they were opened.  He confronted demon powers and they feared and trembled and begged for mercy.  He touched crippled and broken bodies and they were made whole.   He spoke healing to the sick and diseased and they were healed.  He received sinners and had mercy on the guilty.  He loved the unlovable and had compassion on the masses.  He raised the dead… cleansed lepers… resisted the devil… opened graves… interrupted funerals and restored the dead to their families…   He made wine out of water… friends out of enemies… peace out of confusion and torment… joy out of sadness and Heaven out of hell…  And then He told us that:

greater works than these shall ye do; because I go unto my Father… John 14:12.

Jesus is our Example.  Jesus is our Pattern.  Jesus is the guarantee that we can overcome the devil and take dominion over the powers of darkness.

 

What He did… we can do

Jesus is not Who most people think He is.

I have tried to notice some characteristics in the Life of Jesus that probably would not be accepted in the life of any preacher in our society today.

  • He was Radical.
  • He was Outspoken. He pulled no punches.  He shot straight and true.  He did not “beat around the bush.”
  • He was transparent. Who you saw was Who He was.  No pretense.  No hypocrisy.  No make-believe.  No disguise.
  • He was non- religious. He did not run with the ministerial crowd.
  • He was fearless.   He did not mince His words.  He did right with no fear of possible consequences.
  • He was an iconoclast. A Non-conformist.  He kicked over sacred cows.  He violated traditions and He shattered customs.  To the religious world, He was a troublemaker.
  • He was controversial. He took sides with the underdog and He challenged the respected.  He fellowshipped with the sinner and the profane.
  • He embraced the simple and rejected the complicated.
  • He spoke so little children could understand and confounded the wise with Wisdom and Truth.
  • He was Uncompromising. Even when He could have won friends in high places and ultimately saved His own life, He refused to compromise.
  • He was Anointed. And this is what drove Him to the Cross… His Anointing.  He was and is “The Anointed One.”  The Messiah.  The Christ.

He is the Christ.  The Son of the Most High God.  The King of kings and the Lord of lords.  The Alpha and the Omega.  The First and the Last.  The Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley.  He is the Bright and Morning Star.  He is the Great I AM.

 

And He is Lord of all

The Seed of God produces the Kingdom of God.

The Kingdom of God is in the Seed of God.  Just as the oak tree is in the acorn, the Kingdom is in the Seed of God.  Just as the apple tree is in the apple seed, the Kingdom is in the Seed of God.   Just as the corn stalk is in the grain of corn, the Kingdom is in the Seed of God.  Just as the mustard tree is in the mustard seed, the Kingdom is in the Seed of God.   The Seed of God is the Word of God.  Therefore, the Kingdom is in the (Seed) Word.

 Fear not little flock, for it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.  Luke 12:32.

God pleases to give us the Kingdom and He gives it to us in Seed form which is the Word.  What is the Kingdom?   (Basileia) The Kingdom of God is the Rule of God, the Realm of God and the Will of God.

Jesus said when the Gospel of the Kingdom is preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations, then shall the end come.  (Mat 24:14)  We have the Seed.   We have the Seed of the Kingdom of God.  Now, where is the Seed located?

It is where we choose to put it.  If we choose Jesus as Lord, God supernaturally places the Seed of the Kingdom in us.  If we have not chosen Jesus as Lord, the Seed of the Kingdom remains outside.

And ye have not His Word (Seed) abiding in you: for whom He hath sent, Him ye believe not… (John 5:38).

But if we are saved, it is IN US.

 …because ye are strong, and the Word of God   (Seed of God) ABIDETH IN YOU, and ye have overcome the wicked one.”  I John 2:14.

If the Seed of God is in us then the Kingdom of God is in us.

Neither shall they say Lo, here!  or lo, there!  For behold, the Kingdom of God is WITHIN you.  Luke 17:21

Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us… Eph 3:20

Anything, everything and all things that God has is in the Seed.  If you are Born Again the Incorruptible Seed is in you.  I Pet 1:23   Therefore, Anything, everything and all things that God has is inside you in seed form.

Remember… the tree is in the seed.  The seed will grow and produce IF the ground is right and if the environment is right.  The devil and all the powers of darkness cannot prevent the Seed from growing because the Life of God and the Power of God is in the Seed.

I have discovered that there are three main problem areas in the lives of Believers.

These problem areas, if left alone and not controlled, will prevent any Christian from living and walking in victory.   The problem areas are:

  • The Flesh… which needs to be crucified and kept crucified.
  • The Mind… which needs to be renewed and kept renewed.
  • The Mouth… which needs to be controlled all the time.

The flesh is constantly warring against the spirit.  I do not need to tell you this.  You experience it every day.  It rebels against the spirit.   It is at odds with God.  It hates the Word.  It resists the Holy Ghost.  It likes to run loose.  It demands attention.  Uncontrolled, it causes misery, guilt, condemnation, and failure.  The Bible tells us how to have victory over the flesh.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Gal. 5:16

The way to overcome flesh is to walk in the Spirit.  It is our flesh that is constantly giving us trouble.  It is my flesh that causes me the most grief.  Flesh is not sinful in itself.  It was created by God.  It is when we allow flesh to be controlled by a carnal mind and an uncontrolled will that we are tempted to sin… and most often yield to it.

To walk in the Spirit is a choice we make and it means to have our total life (spirit, soul and body) controlled by the Holy Ghost.

He is the living Spirit of the Most High God.

 

And He lives in you

Agape is the God-kind of love.

It is characteristic of God and it is totally self-less.  It is a deliberate assent of the will… it is released by choice.  This kind of love is the underlying characteristic of God and it is this kind of love that is imputed to every believer at the time of Regeneration.  Paul said (in 1 Corinthians 13) that Love (Agape) is more important than:

  • Speaking in Tongues
  • the Gift of Prophecy
  • Understanding (revelation)
  • Mountain-moving Faith
  • Giving to the poor
  • Dying a Martyr

Love is an affection and not an emotion.  Love is a choice.  Love is a decision you make.  Love is deliberate.  Love is active.  Love moves from Word to deed.

  • Love is not impatient but, instead, longsuffering.
  • Love is not envious of others.
  • Love is not self-centered, proud, haughty or puffed up.
  • Love is not conceited.
  • Love is not rude or crude.
  • Love is not touchy or fretful or resentful.
  • Love takes no account of the evil done to it.
  • Love does not rejoice at the failures of others.
  • Love believes the best of every person.
  • Love bears up under anything that comes.
  • Love endures every hardship without weakening. (1Cor 13 Amp)

The opposite of love is not hate… it is selfishness.  The most important product of the Christian faith is Love.  It has more significance and substance than anything that anyone can do, say or profess.  It is the primary characteristic of our faith and our salvation.

The incredible thing is we can all do this.  We can all choose to love.   It is not restricted to some high level of Christian achievement or some special gift from God.  The God-Kind of love is imputed into every believer and every believer has the privilege of giving it away.  And this One Thing will change everything.

Love never fails
