Civil War and Civil Liberals?

If you are a true Christian you must pray for God’s anointed Prophets, anointed Kings, or Leaders; and to pray for them fervently!

 

“Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; 16 Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac; 17 And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,18 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance; 19 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.  20 And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people; 21 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, 22 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm,”   1 Chronicles 16:15-22.

If you are a true Christian you must pray for God’s anointed Prophets, anointed Kings, or Leaders; and to pray for them fervently!

The fervent prayer of the righteous, avails much!  These leaders have a very dangerous job and they face scrutiny every day!

All hell itself will fight against these!  Why?  Because satan Always wants to sit in the highest seat of anything and everything especially in the land and to dominate and control this great nation!

“He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.  When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn,”   Proverbs 29:1-2.

We must remember that King Saul had loyal supporters even after his death and the hated King David, yet David was God’s man for the job.

When you see the divisiveness with the democrats, we must remember they fight against God, and speak treason against God’s King and President.  The house of David and Israel were divided.

After Saul died there was Civil war between the House of David and the House of Saul.  David was 30-38 years old during this period.

“Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.2 And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. 3 And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken. 4 The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. 5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. 6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. 8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand,”   Isaiah 32:1-8.

Over six decades, this nation of America has been lulled to sleep by the lie that we must have separation of church and state.  God has always been involved with government!

The Democrats are angry and afraid of the Church of the living God.  They think the current leadership wants to take us back to the dark ages.  They want socialism, globalism, funded and backed by the global elitist.

If the God-fearing believers don’t come together again in 2020, we are headed for dark foreboding clouds, being off course.

We don’t apologize for obeying the LORD in our political stance or our Biblical stance.  We need to let go of those who are obviously against us as enemies.

I have noticed how easily it is to be sucked into this worlds system and there is so much information available that seeks to suck us into the world and liberal arenas.  We must guard our heart and mind, for out of our mouth will prove what is in there!  Garbage in, garbage out.

It is vitally important to know when to let go of things, beliefs, and people.  For God’s Spirit shall not always strive with man.

My heart is grieved by the so-called Church that defiantly disrespects the LORD, His Word, the true remnant of God and our President.

Truly, the message is clear, “…narrow is the way that leads to life and few that be that find it,”  Matthew 7:14.

We must warn because so many have one foot in and one foot in the other.  We cannot compromise our stance any longer because we must reach as many as we can!

As I watch and pray, I see people I love who seem oblivious to anything happening around them.

How can a Christian not see what the liberal agendas stand for, and how it goes against the word of God?

I know I can no longer apologize for who I am, who I serve, and what I must do and say!

Agreement with God’s Holy Word is our only standard we are measured by!  We must know who we are to align with.

We must stand and pray for our President and his team, the nation and the world!

As we finally make up our mind, we are heading for deep waters.  The greatest battle for souls is taking place, and the angel with the writers ink is marking the foreheads of the converts, much like the blood was on the door post in Goshen when the angel of death passed over.

“…… and the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house.  And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side; And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof,”   Ezekiel 9:3-4 KJV.

I was before the LORD late last night.  I had a great awareness of His presence and thoughts.

I listened to his great disappointment, frustrations and his rejected heart.  This is not an easy thing for Jesus.

Remember he is Son of Man too and knows how it feels to live in this world as a man, yet without sin.  We feel it to a point when they reject us, but he feels it for the whole world.

Jesus gave our free will and choice as a gift, and it is impossible for Him to interfere with our decision. He will not take back any gift! We each must make our own decision and chose.  No one is forced to receive the LORD.

We must work while we have day, to warn the American church and rebuke rampant immorality, abandonment of the Word of God, and political hypocrisy.

We must expose the tyranny of the so-called Church that approves abortion, same sex marriage, and many other leftist democratic views.

We must pray that THE Final wake-up call comes to as many sleeping Christians as possible.

Because of the yawning apathy and complacency, the American church, was demonstrated during the mid-term elections that so-called Christians voted for the Democrat Party.

Many sat in churches listening to mixed, darkened messages of wolves in sheep’s clothing.

God-Fearing people!  You must remain awakened!  Pray for an awakening to begin with you, your house, your family, your friends and the world!

God still has an ambassador that represents our beliefs in this nation!  But we cannot give up! We cannot give up beloved!

We must stand, fast, pray, and do anything we can to support our President and team!  We bring honor to whom honor is due!

We thank God for this stance for our God-Fearing beliefs and standing for the conservative right!

Thank you, God, for President Donald J Trump!

The Greatest Love and Field of Grace

None of us are perfect so why do we expect perfection in others?

I had a dear sister in Christ send me a comment that spoke to me strongly.

I believe I am to pass it on to you specifically for this rhema season.  Thank you, Kelli, for sharing your anointed testimony.  You have spoken loudly beloved!

God has convicted me!  He said, indeed change of attitude and ministry go hand in hand.

Judgment begins with the house of God.  If you are part of God’s house that means it begins with us first.

God is convicting our heart to get our focus back on Him and God’s order of things.  Jesus is all about loving and forgiving and are we a part of Him?

We represent Him to the world.  What pattern of life do you show and live out?

After restoration in our relationship with Jesus, then it is about our own home, and those who are family.

“Yet if any man suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begins with us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator,”   1 Peter 4:16-18 KJV.

It is easy to minister to those who don’t know us, or those who don’t see us often.  God is showing me that many of us have estranged family members AND, that we need to prepare ourselves to be with them and to see them.

It is time beloved!  For some of us, this will be the last time we see them.  We must become active spiritually, pursing our family to bring restoration!

Kill them with kindness!  Put to death the deeds of our flesh, and die to be kind and loving.  A soft answer turns away wrath.

For some of us, the relationships won’t be healed except through prayer and fasting.  AND Yes, we all have free choice and will, and some just won’t want Jesus.

However, we are talking about demonic influences in us and our family.  Some will not go out but by prayer and fasting!

Unless we deal with the enemy in prayer and fasting, we won’t see breakthrough! It’s a serious thing beloved.  They are part of our bloodline, and who knows, maybe you were raised up for such a time as this!

Don’t give up on yourself and your family!  Mobilize in prayer and warfare against that chump the devil.

We’ve got the goods!  We’ve got the power and we’ve got the edge!  The two-edged sword!

None of us are perfect so why do we expect perfection in others?

It isn’t hopeless beloved, but we have a responsibility before God and we must put effort into the situation.  Some of us have given up, but God told me today to NOT give up beloved!

There are strongholds that need to be broken and it can’t happen except through our prayer and fasting.  Don’t give up on them beloved!  God is giving you hope today; it isn’t over!

I am seriously sensing many of you are having anxiety about coming together with family for the holidays.

Through some serious seeking, God has to deal with us first.  We must repent and through our prayers and fasting we can experience break through!

We must see this first in the Spirit and then it will manifest in the natural!

God gave me a vision for you and your family beloved!  I see break through!  But it will take some serious labor in fasting and prayer to break through the strongholds.

I would suggest that you give yourself, to continued prayer and fasting until your guest arrive or you arrive.  Prepare yourself and watch what the LORD will do!

The spirit of rejection, self-pity, self-loathing, fear, doubt, unbelief, abandonment, the spirit of pride, the spirit of offense, the spirit of unforgiving, division, and bitterness are horrible spirits to abide and live with, and many of your families live with them day in and day out.

The people are miserable!  These usually will pull away from everything and everyone that remind them of past sins and family pains and divisions from years ago.

Usually the strong man is PRIDE and it keeps them locked up with big thick walls with lock and key, so they won’t be hurt again!

All family issues and sins that have gone from one generation to the other are generational curses.

These must be broken and the works destroyed.  Beloved, we have the goods!  We have the power through prayers and fasting!

We must first bind pride in our own lives, and ask for forgiveness if we wounded them.  The facade that is presented, doesn’t want anyone to see into their miserable life.  And yet, they see no option or happiness in their future.

Beloved, unless we are dead to self in these situations, we won’t be of any help in cleansing the land in our family.

Ancient spirits have flooded down since Adam and Eve and unless we do the breaking and maintaining the ground we won’t be able to contain it.

We have a majorly huge opportunity!  We have a tremendous ministry field in our own family and country to conquer!

Sure, we can flee from people, isolate ourselves, but we can’t run from those in our own home and family!

I really am convinced and convicted that this is going to be one of the best Christmas’s on record that we have ever experienced! We must do our part.

We are the chosen ones for our family to spearhead deliverance from the generational curses setting the captives free! God is willing, and He is asking you today; are you willing to be obedient and labor to bring sight for the blind and hope for their future?

God is dealing with many of us especially during this 2018 holiday season, because we will see family that maybe we are estranged from, or we are irritated, unforgiving, and bitter.

We that have the spiritual knowledge in the group hold the key to unlock those hidden in bondage! in our families!

We have the Spiritual responsibility in directing how the flow goes.  Everywhere our feet go has been given to us to possess.

We are to take possession of the atmosphere and every demon will shut up and leave once you realize the power you have!

We have been Spiritually lazy, apathetic, and complacent too long! It is the time to possess and reap the harvest in our own house!

We shall obtain through fasting, prayer, forgiving, loving, releasing them and letting them go!

Whenever we go, or they come to our home, we are to speak words of life, love, kindness, being forgiving.

Even in the days gone by, and the sins done against us or to them are still as fresh as they were in the day the offense came.

We must forgive and reach out an olive branch in this season beloved; Regardless of their response.  We must prepare ourselves like going to battle!

Why?  Because we are!  We must remember to represent how Jesus would treat them.

This fast and prayer can also be used and beneficial to help us win our family to God, and to prepare to offer ourselves to them in love.

Pray and Fast beloved of God! This is TRUTH! And this TRUTH will set you free and will be multiplied many times over!

What you do Spiritually will last throughout all eternity!

The Process of Brokenness and Change!

The LORD says: “I AM closing this last chapter in this season, as the set time has come and you have been made ready.”

Vision, Interpretations and Prophecy:

I saw a pick and a axe among a lot of tools and they were leaning against the opening of a mine.

It looked to be a deep coal mine.  It wasn’t a big mine, but a very safe looking mine that had given a fair amount of yield with the “VEIN” excavated.

The vein supplied energy for such a time but it made so sense and I wondered why everything was so clean.

You wouldn’t surrender to the process of being finished because of preexisting thought patterns and doctrines that kept you bound to keep working even though the mine was totally excavated and so clean!

I couldn’t imagine what it took to make it so clean that it shined pristinely!  You didn’t stop but continued working to make that mine “perfect.”

Even though you gained all the coal in that vein, and I could see the length of Spiritual time and fortitude it took, spent going around and around and I was wondering why.

I could see you standing alone having these thoughts and now you began to understand that you had gone as far as you could go in these parameters.

You had checked and rechecked everything so many times you had it memorized from the sheer repetition of knowing each square inch of the mine.

I could sense the frustration because you mined out all you could in this vein.  The mine, for a season of time, provided enough coal to heat and give energy and care for the needs of the current Spiritual season and location.

However, there are many who are not ready to move from that known location to an unknown one.  Change is inevitable and it can be very hard for some.

Yes, there are some who have rooted themselves in that place, and to think of change has caused much confusion and anxiety.

You kept the mine in very meticulous order and has shown great attention to every detail.  Though the ceiling, walls, and floor were very black it was thoroughly spic and span.

This mine was unlike any other mine I had ever heard of or seen! It looked so clean that people doubted the condition and held to their unbelief.

There were many who took a white cloth and wiped the walls and floors and it was perfectly all clean, to their disbelief!

I could see too that each timber was set perfectly and the mine was very stable. However, once the mine was excavated you became frustrated and there was such silence and you would not move.

The LORD impressed upon me, that through the years, you held on to what you believe, but in your quest for more in depth of substance, perfection, and experiences with the Lord only led to more deep mine questions.

You are an aggressive, loyal type of person concerning depth, desires, and commitment and you are not afraid of hard work and won’t quit!  Such noble qualities and feats in your past caused you to learn well by experience, especially with difficult people.

“I AM closing this last chapter in this season, as the set time has come and you have been “made ready.” 

The past is behind, however what things I taught and stripped away are sealed, much like the memory of the five smooth stones.  Reminiscent by the bear and the lion,”  says the LORD.

“I have given you secret glimpses and previews of future things to come; pieces to chew on.  Because of impatience, and at times, great discouragement, you forgot the path of promise.

I wanted you to know that nothing can stop the travail of soul when the time of birth has come!  You had given up hope for the promise I made to you.  Hope deferred makes the heart sick.

The shift preview has taught you new things that have demanded you to unlearn things that were taught as religious things.

Remember when Peter was on the roof and I gave him a vision and I commanded him to rise and eat of unclean animals!  Do not what I call clean unclean any longer.

Now in MY destiny challenge for you, the compass has shifted and directionally by faith giving you alignment so that you won’t feel that you are spinning out of control into the unknown.

Know this!  You may feel unknown and where I AM leading you feels unknown, but I have gone before you and I have set your mind at ease and to understand, for I the LORD have liberated you!

Are you ready as My creation to be recreated?  My Holy Spirit is upon you to be open to learn! 

That is why My grace is moving and you will find great hope and passion in these new days to come.  Don’t be afraid as you have watched the stream dry up and the ravens stopped bringing flesh to eat.

You are being sent!  Don’t hold on to the old, for it has been excavated, do not hold to the consistency of the brook and the ravens!

You are new transplants!  Are you ready and enduring My promises with new passion!

Can you perceive it? Transformation and transitioning evolve into great passion!

What grace you had for this past season is dead and gone!  It is time to look ahead for you have never gone this way before.  However, you were prepared for such a time as this!

In the back of your mind, in the silence of yourself, in this new environment you are feeling mighty low and alone.

There is no common ground, there is no perfect box in the Kingdom, and many have let you down!

You must forgive all of those you have blamed and realize that through it all, I AM the same and I remain the same.  I AM bringing you into My Fullness!

I AM removing your false ceiling, walls, and floor.  I AM going to teach you new things and revelations that will astound the people!

Prepare to be misunderstood!  You continued to remain, but now you wondered and questioned what it all was for.  The journey is changing!

You have put out so much effort, but why isn’t it yielding more?

You have felt exhausted and have felt like you are spinning, like a hamster wheel.  Why did you continue year after year and seemingly end up facing the same questions?

You continued to push down every question and pushed on to continue your trek.  But now can you see a new thing?

A great awakening?  Fresh revelations?  Can’t you perceive it?

It is like rivers in the desert that gives water in the wilderness, to give drink to God’s People, My Chosen.

I can see you in times past, you carried a big canteen filled with water from your own individual well you dug in the wilderness to supply your need. 

As you wandered in the wilderness, you would find people along the trek, that were tired, wounded and near death and you would supply their need until they had to go their own way and trust Me.”

However, I saw a great light descend upon you, and HE reminds me of the great light that knocked Paul off his horse and yes, I hear, you too will begin to move into the vein and a road less traveled.

Foundations of Our Faith Series – Pt. 2

Christian believer!  God does NOT put you into cringing, scared to death, insecurity, worry, and fear!

 

Part 2 – Continuation of “Repentance from Dead Works.”

“Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection (maturity), not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment,”   Hebrews 6:1-2 NKJV.

1:  The first foundational doctrinal truth is the “Repentance from Dead Works.”

Before I start, I would challenge each of you to follow up on what is presented and do a word study on the word “perfect” throughout the Holy Bible.

You will find various meanings for the word “perfect, perfection or perfected.”

Correct meaning and understanding happens only when we are in the context to the entire Holy Scriptures!

Only then can we rightly divide the word of truth and understand its meaning.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth,”   2 Timothy 2:15 KJV.

When you read the word “perfect” in this teaching, you need to look up the original meaning in context to all the base point passages of scripture.

While Paul calls us not only to imitate God (Ephesians 5:1 KJV), but also to imitate him (1 Corinthians 4:16, 11:1 & 2 Thessalonians 3:7).  Paul denies that he is perfect (Philippians 3:12 KJV).

Yet, Paul calls the believers to share the excellence of life that Christ bestows on us, (Colossians 1:28, 3:14 KJV).

Hebrews speaks of the perfection of God’s children, stressing that it is the result of Christ’s death on their behalf.

“By one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy,”  (Hebrews 10:14 and cross reference Hebrews 11:40, 12:23 KJV).

A key New Testament verse for understanding perfection in the Christian life, is found in (Corinthians 12:9).

“But he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made ‘perfect’ in weakness.”

Believers are made perfect if they have received the gift of God’s grace in and through Christ.

Christ came to earth with THE eternal mission of love.  He chose and willingly suffered an unimaginable, horrible death, becoming THE pure spotless Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!  He is our peace and has broken down the middle wall that divided us from God.

The 18-inch curtain that separated us from God, was ripped from the top to the bottom when he died.

Thus, making the way open for us to come into the holy of holies by a new and living way through the veil of His flesh! His death opened the way for all those who call Him LORD.

He is the author of our soul salvation and in His ‘perfection,’ he exchanged with us, what we could never do!

By receiving Jesus Christ as Lord, He made us right with God once and for all! When we received Him as Lord and savior we inherited His many benefits.

“Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.  Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah,”   Psalms 68:18-19 KJV.

When we understood our hopeless condition and the revelation of our total alienation and sinful life from God, we cried out to God to save us!

That beloved was the most amazing revelation we could imagine or ever understand!
Jesus Christ took our place!

We should have been totally separated from God!  But God!  Beloved of God, there was an exchange that took place at that very moment when you cried out to God!

Jesus Christ finished our payment of sin through the travail of HIS soul, being perfectly spotless, sinless, and totally righteous!

He gave and exchanged his perfect life ‘once and for all’ for all those who have received Him as LORD!

When we received the ‘Gift of Salvation,’ that paid and totally covered all the righteous decrees and demands of the law, once and for all, with His willing sacrifice on Calvary! Beloved, He took our place!

Jesus did for us what we could not do, and all to him we owe!  Through Jesus’ abiding “perfection,” He continues to make the way open for us and he ‘perfected’ that which concerns us!

Beloved, the Law, Religion, and Tradition are not our friends!  These influences will continue to send onslaughts against you.

Why?  Because they are on a serious quest to keep you from freedom and the simplicity in Christ!

The opposite of trusting faith is fear!  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom!  That is where we start; at the beginning!

To receive wisdom, we reverence God!  As Children, we can understand that Abba God loves and teaches us, and only wants what is best for us.

God is the perfect parent!  He is a good Father and He doesn’t make mistakes in our rearing!  God is not like earthly minded imperfect parents.

Satan doesn’t want you to see or know that the highest rank and power in the Kingdom of God, is that of a little child!

All of heaven backs up “A Child of God!” Especially one who knows who they are in Christ!

Satan wants to twist God’s Word and His nature and character to that of an angry parent that you can never please or measure up to!

Satan wants to keep you from developing as a Child of God, so he twists the scriptures and uses all sorts of false religious doctrines, and fear tactics, to misrepresent who God is!

Christian believer!  God does NOT put you into cringing, scared to death, insecurity, worry, and fear!

We are to reverence God and respect, and honor him as our Father!  Faith and fear cannot abide together!  One will cancel out the other!

When we get into trouble, Father God disciplines us for our good that we partakers of His holiness.

What good Father doesn’t discipline his child?  His Love and devotion toward us is always motivated to do what is best for us!

Yes, even when he must correct us, it is always for our good!  God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind!

Perfect love cast out all fear for fear hath torment, those who fear have not been made perfect in love.  Being perfected in love is when we understand that God is not against us, He is for us from beginning to end!

Child of God; God’s perfect love toward us liberates us and we finally comprehend that we have life and peace in knowing Abba God’s nature, and character, and His amazing love for us!

Read Hebrews 12:7-13….

“If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
12 Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed,”
   Hebrews 12:7-13.

“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love,”   1 John:4:16-18 KJV.

Satan wants you to believe the lie.  That God isn’t good, that he doesn’t love you, that he is out to get you, and that you will never be good enough to measure up!

Well part of that is true; You will never measure up to God’s standards in your own strength and power!

Satan doesn’t want you to know about the goodness of God’s liberating power and the simplicity that is in Christ!

Do you remember when you were first saved, and how wonderful, powerful, and liberating it truly was to be free indeed?

If the enemy cannot stop us from receiving salvation, he will come at you to twist the scriptures about every promise Christ has done and provided for us.

The devil will go after us with a Religious spirit to bring us back into bondage and under a yoke of slavery!

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage,”   Galatians 5:1 KJV.

As I close this portion of teaching, I will leave you with this preview.  There are many religions and denominations in Christendom that teach that you must follow Jesus AND obey the Law.

These two cannot coexist!  It is like a magnetic force that pushes against each other; These cannot come together; It is impossible!

There is an ongoing war of darkness, and their mission is, to spy out our liberty we have in Christ in how he set us free and their motive is to bring us into bondage!

What Jesus Christ accomplished for us is so amazing, and so wondrous!  Many people, including Christians struggle saying it can’t be that easy!

But beloved of God, God meant for it to be so simple that a child can understand!

Foundations of Our Faith

The doctrine of repentance from dead works is absolutely foundational to our faith.  All of us have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God.

 

“Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection (maturity), not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment,”   Hebrews 6:1-2 NKJV.

The first foundational doctrinal truth is the “Repentance from Dead Works.”

The doctrine of repentance from dead works is absolutely foundational to our faith.  All of us have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God.

All of our works in the flesh, past, present, and future can never make us perfect in our flesh and behaviors to have right standing or security with God,  (Romans 3:23).

Regardless of our activity, works, actions, and behavior; we can NEVER attain the ability to measure up to what Christ paid for us on Calvary!

Christ Jesus did it once and for all! How can we think we could be perfect enough in our flesh by making ourselves right with God apart from Christ?

Christ Jesus paid for us in full and we cannot add to that nor can we take anything away from it.

It is HIS Paid free gift to us!  He paid a horrible price for ALL our sins, past, present and future when we accept HIS free gift to us!

The bottom line question is: Can we be perfect enough in our flesh and behaviors to measure up to what Christ perfectly did?

NO!  If we think we can be perfect enough by the law, then we must do ALL the law perfectly,  (Romans 10:5).

You can attempt over and over to live the “perfect life” your best shot!  However, when we try to be perfect in our flesh, it will only lead you to insanity, and burnout!

NO ONE CAN DO IT!  You will be like the runaway train!

Can anyone become perfected by the law in performance in their behaviors?

If so, then Christ’s death was in vain for them.  Our choice beloved is; Do we live by the letter of the law, or by the hearing of faith in Christ?

If we choose to live by the law then the payment of Christ’s sacrifice was in vain for you.

All of our acts of righteousness are as filthy rags in God’s eyes!  The Father has commanded all men everywhere to repent of their wicked ways.

This belief that we are perfect in our flesh is a wicked way!

“And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.  Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.  But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.  For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.  And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.  But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?  We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.  But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin?  God forbid.  For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.  For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.  I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain,”   Galatians 2:9-20.

“Now we know that what things so ever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; to declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.  Where is boasting then?  It is excluded.  By what law? of works?  Nay: but by the law of faith.  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.  Is he the God of the Jews only?  is he not also of the Gentiles?  Yes, of the Gentiles also: seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.  Do we then make void the law through faith?  God forbid: yea, we establish the law,”   
Romans 3:19-31 KJV.

We cannot master the law, or we would have been the master.  Do we think more of ourselves or above God?  Perfection means maturity!  We would never be perfect in our flesh in this life.

Extreme teaching, is rooted in pride and it opens the door to dabbling with the fallen angels that come as angels of light!

They are very cunning and crafty, very expert in knowing how to present themselves and to twist the word of God.

These fallen angels of hell can manifest as glorious looking creatures, such as angels of light with beauty.  These fallen angels have studied man a long time!  They have studied YOU!

They know if they can’t get you coming, they will get you going!  These fallen angels’ mission is in drawing us further and further away from the truth!

Balance is so important! We must return to our foundations and see where we got off.  When we get off balance and off center, this is the time to pull away from anything and everyone and regroup with God!

When we refocus, and get centered back on God and His Word, He will pull us back into focus, balance, and to be centered!  Then He will cause us to be in sync with His order of things!

We must have our foundation settled because if we build anything on a faulty foundation when the winds blow, everything that isn’t built according to Christ righteousness will be blown away!

Our foundation is always Christ in what He did, not what we did!

“Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection (maturity), not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment,”   Hebrews 6:1-2 NKJV.
