Saved

Saved

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13). Salvation comes only by faith in Jesus that He is the Son of God, and through His death and resurrection we’re reconciled to the Father. Nothing we can do will earn us righteousness, but as we  accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Many have accepted Jesus as their Savior, but they haven’t accepted Him as their Lord.  As a Savior, He will protect, heal, deliver, and  provide, but as Lord, He becomes the owner of the individual. The individual becomes submissive to the Lord, spirit, soul, mind and body. Jesus came to do more than to save us from our problems, He came to reconcile us to the Father, setting us apart for Himself.

There is a teaching “Saved” always saved, but it’s not spiritually biblical. Yes, Jesus will always protect, provide, heal, and deliver for those who believe He is the Son of God as well as those who deny that He’s the Son of God and those who reject His existences. Salvation with sanctification is when the individual has accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord, in other words, they have became born-again according to the instructions Jesus gave the disciples (Jesus answered, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God-John 3:5). Our spirit must become one with His Spirit in order to submit ourselves willingly to the Word of God.

God loves everyone, there isn’t a sin a person can commit and God would not love the individual; He hates the sin, but He loves the individual, same thing goes with save, but it will come a time the individual must answer to God for their rejection of the Word of God. When we disobey the Word of God, we’re rejecting His Word. People think because God love them and blesses them they can live according to their will and not be submissive to the Word of God. Salvation with sanctification the individual follows the instructions God has given us in His written Word.  Saying we believe in God and His Son, but reject His Word willingly causes us to be in disobedience and disobedience can cause us  to miss heaven and enter into hell, this is why the children of Israel couldn’t enter into the promise land because of their disobedience. Our promise land is heaven, and we must be obedient to the Word of God and the Spirit of God to enter in.

Jesus didn’t die so we could continue to live in sin, He came so that He could deliver His people from their sin. In order to know what is sin to God, we must take time and read His Word and have a willingness to obey His Word. If their is a willingness in our heart, God will enable us to submit to His Word. God holds every individual accountable for their knowledge of Him. He left us His Word so that we would have knowledge of His likes and dislikes. What we need to know about God is in His Word; how to please Him, is in His Word, how to enter into hell is in His Word, how to enter to heaven is in His Word.

Your Destiny Is In The Hands of God

Your Destiny Is In The Hands of God

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou comest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations (Jeremiah 1:5) Jeremiah was called of God to be a prophet and the Word of the Lord came to Jeremiah confirming his office as a prophet. God had spoken destiny to Jeremiah prior to his birth,  just as God spoke to Jeremiah’s destiny, He has spoken destiny over every child of God. No matter what you are going through or been through God has a plan for your life. The adversary comes to huff and puff to try to blow your dreams down,  goals, marriage, business, your health, but through it all, God has the last say so. God will allow you to have the victory although you maybe victimized. Stop worrying about what, when you should be telling what about who will be your helper, who will deliver you from the hands of your enemies, who will do for you what you can’t do for yourself. God has already spoken destiny over your life and His word shall come to pass. Heaven earth will pass away, but every word the Father has spoken shall come to pass. The word of God is settled in heaven waiting for its appointed time to be manifested in the life of His people. Wipe away your tears and get it settled in your mind, heart and spirit, that the Lord is with you and He will never leave or forsake you, your life is in God’s hand, stay committed to Him and He will be committed to you.

I Thrist

I Thrist

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith I thirst (John 19:28). Prior to this time, a complicated system of sacrifices was made for  sin. Sin separates people from God, and only through the sacrifice of an animal, a substitute, could people be forgiven of sin and became cleaned before God. Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice, when He made the sacrifice, He didn’t have to it do again as they did with the animal sacrifices. He shed His blood once and it cleansed thousands of generations from the sins they were born into as they accept Jesus as the Son of God and through faith they were reconciled to God through the shedding of His blood and resurrection.

Jesus didn’t have to leave the Father to come to earth and die for our sins, but He loved the Father and the people of the world so much, He volunteered Himself to be the sacrifice for our sins. When He made the statement “I thirst”, it wasn’t only to say that it was finished, but the thirst He had; was to return to the Father. It’s like when you love someone and you haven’t seen them or been in their presence for awhile, you will have craving or a desire to be with them.

Anytime we come into the presence of God, it’s something that mire words cannot explain or describe, it becomes a thirst to get into His presence, to feel His touch. Sad to say, many churches and the body of Christ has lost that thirst to experience the move of God in the sanctuary and in our  homes. God is still during miracles, signs and wonders, but He needs a vessel He can use, He need churches that will not program Him out when He begin to move in their sanctuary. God is ready to open up blinded eyes both naturally and spiritually, but He cannot do it when He can’t find  people that is willing to sacrifice themselves to be used by Him. Just as He used Smith Wigglesworth and others like him, they were thirsting for the presence of God and because they thirst and hungered after righteousness; they were filled and their thirst blessed others.

We need to ask ourselves, when was the last time we felt God’s presence in our church and it wasn’t our emotions on display, but the Spirit of God moving among the pews?People being healed, saved, filled with the Spirit of God, blinded eyes opened, diseased bodies being healed, minds being regulated to soundness, that’s is  what happens when the Spirit of God comes into our sanctuaries and homes. Have you ever been down in your spirit, and then you begin to praise God, and as you praise Him, you can feel when He steps into your home, the atmosphere changes and you know you’re standing in the presence of the Lord. He comes to us, when we thirst for His presence!

Manipulated Worship

Manipulated Worship

God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him, must worship Him in Spirit and in truth. (John 4:24).

So many times congregates have been instructed to praise the Lord, and your praise will get you what you need from God. We have been instructed to worship God no matter what our life style may be. Jesus knew the heart of man, and He informed His followers of the prophecy that was given by the Prophet Isaiah “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far away. Their worship is a farce, for they replace God’s commandments with their own man-made teachings” (Matthew 15:8 New Living Translation).

God has given us instructions how we should worship Him and receive results from our worship. We cannot have on the garment of unforgiveness, envy, strife, rebellion, disobedient, fornication, adultery, unbelief, doubt and all the others things He has commandment not to have or do and think the praises are acceptable in the eyes of God.

Many times we come together in worshiper, we sing, shout and jump, run around the church, and we say “the Lord is here”, when we’re really worshipping in our emotions. The music sounds good, it’s ministering to our emotions and not our spirit. Whenever the Lord comes on the scene, changes are made, people don’t go out the same way they came in. Conviction comes upon those that aren’t living right, those that are born-again will be refreshed in their spirit. Sinners will come to the altar and it will be a life changing experience, not a today salvation and living like a sinner tomorrow. Healing will take place in the spirit, mind, emotions, and body. Relationships will be healed, back-sliders will rededicate their life, people will receive the Holy Spirit, and the Spiritual gifts will be in manifestation when the Lord enters the sanctuary.

We cannot live a sinful life and expect the Spirit of the Lord will come; because He will not (The camp must be holy, for the Lord your God moves around in your camp to protect you and to defeat your enemies. He must not see any shameful thing among you, or He might turn away from you (Deuteronomy 23:14 New Living Translation). When sin is in the camp of the body of Christ, it’s not the Spirit of the Lord moving among the people, but the spirit of emotions that’s making the people to believe the Lord is in the midst of them. We’re spirit beings and we draw spirits by the spirit that is dwelling in us.

Many churches are filled with envy, jealous, spiritual discrimination, fault-finding, disunity, disobedient, rebellion and some ministers have the people believing the Lord is in the midst of the mess; God doesn’t bless mess. If the minstrel is not living a holy life, separated from the world, committed to the Lord, they cannot usher the Spirit of the Lord in the place. Choir members cannot usher the spirit of the Lord in the sanctuary, if they’re in disunity, back-biting, fault-finding, ungodly pride as well as any of the other things the Lord has put in place for us to follow, He isn’t coming in the sanctuary.

We cannot manipulate God with our praise and worship and not be living according to His bylaws to receive the blessings. The Bible is our mirror of correction, it will always assist us to find out where we are. We draw God’s Spirit, by His Spirit that lives within our being. The next time we go to worship, we need to discern what spirit we’re drawing to us. When the worshiper is real, He will give a visitation in our homes; wherever we maybe, He will come to us.
