Chapter Bible Notes
Jesus Christ called to be the Great adversary destined to united the two realms and finish the Fathers eternal kingdom plan. Finish the mission.
Matthew 4 when everything else is worthless compared to walking in relationship and completing the Fathers mission then you are finally at the place where God can divinely work thru you and give you all power and authority to complete your mission on the earth
Matthew 5 the Kingdom begins on the earth
Supernatural beyond human ability
Be perfect requires living in the kingdom beyond human ability.
Matt 6 prayer – focus on the Father only
The worries of this life will distract and limit your faith, relationship with God ability to pray and hear his voice.
Matt 7:11 the Father knows everything you need and is just waiting for you to ask because He has already made all provision to give it to you.
Good works can’t save you. Only trees rooted and grounded in the person of Christ will produce fruit. Only a life founded solely and completely in Christ will ensure all storms.
Matt 8 healing/active faith all about being under the authority of Heaven. Healing and faith is dependent on every area of your life surrendered to the ways of the kingdom.
When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
The centerion recognized the king and did not mentally struggle for a moment wondering if His son could be saved. Do you recognize the power of the King and are you surrendered to His authority.
18-22 do I mean more to you than the most precious people and passions in your earthly life? Is there Anything else you treasure?? Anything you treasure has stolen a piece of your heart from me
23-27 when the storms of life come do you realize the infinite power and the glory of the One who is in the boat with you. If Jesus is with you how can any situation or circumstance even phase you?? We desperately need a greater revelation of the power and glory of the One who is in the boat with us.
34 kingdom power and light will descend on Pure hearts and holy lives forcing all darkness to flee. True power is found in becoming completely helpless and surrendered to the King.
Matt 9 religion will be jealous of those who are living effective Kingdom lives.
As human beings especially spiritually we always oppose change. However God is continually trying to take us further revealing greater depths. Few are willing to go! Are you comfortable/holding onto what you have or does your heart yearn for more?
All who were healed Simply recognized who Jesus was!! Faith and healing completely dependent a personal relationship with Christ and realizing his infinite glory and power. To the degree you Know Him is the degree faith/ healing can work in your life.
38 pray for ambassadors who will awaken hearts to the kingdom bringing them into the great harvest to the eternal kingdom.
Matt 10 sending out ambassadors the kingdom of heaven has now come to the earth!! (miracles only to reveal/awaken people to the kingdom).
10:20 effective evangelism – the Holy spirit alone will always give you the right words to say
Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
27 I know number of hairs on your head and will be your shield, guide and Great reward.
39 when the things of this world become worthless (losing your life) you will discover what it truly means to live and will begin to walk in eternity now.
Matt 11 called as messengers to prepare the way of the Lord and awaken every heart to realize He is King. They may not accept Him but at least they know He is king.
Greater judgment for those who have seen God move but rejected it.
29 Jesus’ greatest promise to you and the only hope to complete your earthy mission. Partner with me and together we will walk each moment of your earthly existence together. Working as one with Jesus every moment of our earthly lives is your Only hope of fulfilling the Fathers mission for your life.
He majority of us fall so far below the Fathers plan because we try to do it ourselves instead of allowing our senior partner to lead guide and empower of every breath.
Matt 12 our preconceived understandings of God and especially our religious ways prevent and limit God from powerfully moving and speaking in and thru our lives.
Healing useless and will lead someone worse off unless it leads to a heart transformation and into the kingdom. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there
Matthew 13 parable of the sower.
Sower-God Importance of always having a tender cultivated heart surrendered to the Lord. Any areas of unsurrender are rocky, inhibit growth and prevent God from working in your life. Complete surrender and completely tender moldavia heart as David = x100 return.
100 fold is all about the heart nothing else. That is why having a perfect heart is so important!!
Both grow till harvest. Tares weeded out first and the all the good crop harvested into the kingdom of heaven.
48 kingdom is finding treasure are you wiling to trade everything you have for something far greater??
58 isn’t this just carpenters son. Only those who revered and honored Him as the Great king saw miracles and Jesus further revealed His glory to them.
Matt 14 feeding 5000 very simple Jesus could have fed 7 billion Heaven Infinite supply
Walking on water simple Jesus could have flown thru the air, as new creations in Christ supernatural law exceeds all physical laws. If only we could recognize the power we have been given
In the storms of life when we take our eyes and life focus off of Jesus you will begin to sink Everytime. Its during the storms you must press in more than ever before in prayer, in worship, in fasting and seeking his face.
Matt 15 human preconceived ideas and tradition make Gods word and power of no effect.
The Father is most angry with those who draw near with words and their hearts are far from Him.
When blind are leading the blind for centuries they get so far off Gods track.
Matt 16 the church is made up of those who have received the revelation Jesus is the annointed King who deserves my complete surrender and the son of God. Total surrender is where the Father can finally give us the keys to the kingdom win the Great battle and bring His kingdom to this earth by uniting the two world!!
25 when you hold on tightly to your life you will eventually die and lose it. When you are young you feel like you have life but Each year you can feel life slippin thru your fingers and lose it more and more each year.
When you surrender you life you start gaining your life mor and more each year. Instead of feeling more hopeless and lost more and more each year life starts getting greater more fulfilling and more like your youth more and more each year.
Human beings have been created to long to young because you were made to live forever. Giving your life to he Father is he only way you can experience this incredible life you were made to live becoming more childlike and younger every day!!
Matt 17 transfiguration Jesus earthly mission must have been so difficult knowing all along the fate that Waited Him. How much Jesus loved the Father to spend every moment of His life on the most difficult mission in the history of the world! My child daily realize the mission Jesus lived and draw great strength and joy knowing though your mission may seem challenging compared to Jesus it is nothing. Know that Everything you are doing is for a reason because I have called you to do it!! My child everything is part of the mission so do not worry or wonder about it simply embrace it knowing this is part of the mission I have called you on!!
20 Disciples because of you unbelief because you are so unaware and really do not yet realize you are operating in the kingdom of heaven you are powerless. But if you truly realized and understood you are in the kingdom of heaven even just a little bit, even as much as the smallest of the smallest seeds in the world. Then even with that small an understanding and realization of the kingdom (and your authority as a priest and king) the you could literally move this mountain and very easily heal this child if you are following thru with direct orders from the king!! (it is pointless just to say a random command like move a mountain it must be on orders from the king Himself. As an ambassador Your words and life are only representing the Fathers will in the earth.
Matt 18 those who have become most childlike in simple belief and humility are the greatest in heaven.
Parable lost sheep – Of the 7 billion on the planet the Father sent His son and is watching your every move desperately searching you out and trying to get your attention. It’s the Fathers will that every child comes home.
Hell is not created by a capricious God to punish evil. However to create free will beings the Father had to give us a choice to serve Him or not. Hell is simply the place for those who have chosen to live without God. God did not create to be an awful place but since He is not present there simply makes it an awful place.
35 you have been infinitely forgiven so how can you possibly do anything less than infinitely forgive. If you do not forgive Your Father will not have mercy on you.
Matt 19 Good master not Lord. Written for todays relativistic culture. God is the definition of good and no good can exist apart from Him. Apart from Gods power working in your life it is impossible to be a “good person”.
Rich young ruler the more you have the harder it is to give up. Camels with a ton of stuff on their back it would be impossible to enter thru the small needle gateway on the city walls.
Until you discover a personal relationship with Jesus Christ your earthly possession will seem far more valuable than Christ. The rich young ruler personifies the vast majority of Christians who go to church and try to keep the commands but they treasure other things more simply because they have not personally encountered Jesus. They cannot be blamed because religious devotion is far less exciting or interesting than the treasures of this world.
Every person desperately needs a greater encounter with the person of Christ. As you know Him all else will become worthless and you will count all else as loss compared to knowing and walking with Him!!
Until you enter into a personal relationship with Christ it is impossible to lose your life and surrender all because knowing Him reveals the worthlessness of all other treasures in your life.
Matt 20 the first last and many called but few embrace it.
The most humble servants like Jesus will truly the greatest in heaven! Do I truly believe that?? Then why don’t I live this way??
Matt 21 the Father prepared every detail of the Script to perfectly fulfill every prophesy! The Father has a perfect plan your life and as you surrender to Him, He is orchestrating every Detail in your life to ensure everything goes according to plan.
23 operating in kingdom authority supersedes all things on the earth. When your heart completely becomes the Fathers word and will on the earth, then you will also operate and live in this great authority and power!!
Father intervene in every detail of my life!!
Matt 22 You have been invited to the marriage supper but what have you done with the invitation?? Put it somewhere for safe keeping and just living this life however you want?
Or are you living as a pure bride seeking this moment more and more each day by living a pure and holy life!
Your Father is calling and waiting to meet with you today?? How do you respond each day?? Lord I am coming but I am really busy with my business, or really busy with my hobbies or about to get married.
40 Loving and walking with the Father is central to everything. The first commandment and all proceeding commandments are summoned up in simple childlike faith of knowing and walking with the Father.
Matt 23 the Father desperately yearns to gather His children across the earth. In the final chapter all of Israel will be greatly humbled in hopes of many returning fulfilling a perfect picture of redemption from the beginning to end of this age!! Father complete your perfect plan.
Matt 24 appears to describe both 70ad and the return of the King to the earth as almost a repeat of the events of 70ad. The parable of the fig tree reading the times.
No one knows the hour so live ready at all times!! As in the day of Noah people will be living life as normal then instantly the flood comes taking away the chaff first Matt 13 and then bringing the good Harvest into the kingdom.
40 if the King returned this very moment would you be found faithful and greatly rewarded or not making the best use of your time.
Matt 25 wise trade everything Else in life to live in he peer and presence of the Holy Spirit. Must be living a pure and holy life.
17 the Father has given each person unique talents to further his kingdom in the earth. Are you using your talents to further his kingdom or only to benefit yourself. Do you even know what your talents are??
30 the judgment based on if you lived each day caring for Jesus thru every person you meet. What would it look like to treat my enemy or that street person like Jesus?? Wh don’t I really believe and live this way?? Why doesnt it connect that how I treat every person I meet is really display my love and how I treat Jesus!!
If I just yelled at my spouse that is how I just treated Jesus!!
Didn’t listen to parents that is how I treated Jesus!!
Father I am so sorry please show me how to really live in light of eternity.
Matt 26 when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.
Communion is looks into the past remembering what my savior has done, in the present a celebration of His faithfulness and presence and looks into the future every time I partake serving as a great reminder of the joy that awaits fueling me for the journey ahead and awakening the great yearning of my heart to ever live in anticipation of this glorious day.
Jesus the incredibly difficult mission you had to complete! How did you do it?? How could you live your entire life fully aware of the fate that awaited even though at any moment you could have returned to heaven??
Matt 27:51 behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake,
The greatest feat Jesus accomplished tearing down the wall between the Father and His children. Jesus laid down his life as a bridge so every child of God could enter into a personal relationship with their heavenly Father!! We can’t granted!! Seeing all Jesus has done for us we must live every waking moment in desperate pursuit of a greater relationship with the Father!!
Matt 28 the resurrection I am the way the truth and life.
Jesus was not the only one resurrected and raised to new life his day!! Through Jesus death and resurrection All who believed became new creations in Christ beginning a brand new race of beings!!
As new creation beings walking in the power and authority as ambassadors of the King is the only way to accomplish the great commission. Without the power and demonstration of the kingdom it is impossible to be an ambassador and share the kingdom message with the world.
Acts a new chapter in Gods kingdom plan begins now the Holy Spirit working thru humans is the main chapter instead of Jesus. However in this chapter The Kingdom of heaven is advancing in far greater ways than ever before. Instead of being limited to one physical body, Jesus can now inhabit and work thru every believer on earth creating he greatest Holy Spirit empowered army this world has ever seen.
The righteous will be strong and do great exploits for he kingdom in the final chapter.
John 1 Light of the world.
The only way my kingdom can come thru you is if you are completely surrendered and flooded with Light.
To overcome darkness you must be completely 100% flooded with the light because the darkness is very strong in its darkness.
This is why I am have so intensely working in your life to remove every shadow of darkness (other idols/earthly treasures) from your life.
The only way you fulfill my kingdom plan is when you finally come to the place where every shadow is removed from your heart and my kingdom comes in your life.
When no shadows of turning or doing your own will remain then I can finally flood your heart with the power and authority of Christ to operate as He did on this earth as the light of the world bringing my kingdom to this earth more and more each day!!
Until are All shadows of changing are removed I cannot flood your heart the power of my light and authority as I long to. This is the process of preparing the army of light!!
It’s not only awakening to your inheritance as a king and priest but allowing your heart to be totally transformed so my kingdom can fully come thru your life. You can not walk in your inheritance until all shadows of changing are removed and my kingdom has completely taken over your heart and life!!
Romans 1 When we know God but do not revere Him as the Holy Almighty King, His image is distorted in our hearts and minds. As Israel at Sinai we create our own image of God, that will give us what we want but not require us to change and conform to His higher standards. We still believe we are worshipping Yahweh but He has become as manageable deity that we control.
depending on your own works, church attendance or anything else is futile. All pious religious devotion is a complete waste of time unless you allow God to change (circumcise) your heart.
Romans 3 Zero benefit to being a Jew or part of a certain denomination.
25 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Your good works and effort are futile. The most pious person in the world is a wicked wicked sinner and has no hope of pleasing God. It is impossible to please God by your own striving/ability.
Romans 4 Abraham and all the saints of old were given Right standing with God because of their faith!! They could not earn it!!
26 for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
Believing on Christ ( complete surrender to the King) is the only way to be made right with God.
Romans 5 when you hated and were against God, Christ died personally for you in hopes of rescuing you from inevitable death and bringing you into His eternal kingdom.
5:20 the law was given to reveal our desperate need for grace
Romans 6 the key to being set free from all sin and come to a complete surrender is to die.
For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
If you are buried with Christ it is impossible to do anything. Now you have been raised to new life where the Holy Spirit is controlling your thoughts/life and God has given you His very character and nature!!
This is a progressive process but the more you walk in the power of the Spirit you become more and more like the Father in every way.
8 if you are dead in Christ the you are alive and walking with Him in heavenly places. So many Christians have not come to complete surrender, so they are still so caught up in virtual reality, so though positionally seated with Christ until they are buried in baptism they will not awaken to eternal reality.
14 empowered by grace it is impossible for Sin to have dominion over you.
16 what you serve/treasure most in your heart is what will control you!! If you are more passionate about other things than God they will control you. When you personally walk with the Father nothing else can control you. Pray for a greater revelation of the Father, begin to awaken his desire in prayer, reading the word and worship.
6:23 all who live for themselves (sin) are on a one way street to eternal death. Life is getting darker and more hopeless each day. Those who have found and are living by grace are going higher and higher into the Kingdom of heaven each day.
Romans 7:1 until your life and desires are completely surrendered and buried with Christ, they will control and have dominion over you!!
4 to find freedom and live in victory you must become dead to the Law so you can become the bride of Christ and live for Him alone.
24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death
The great battle between light and darkness. As long as you try with your own efforts to follow God you will fail miserably. It’s is humanly impossible to live pleasing to God. That is why you desperately need grace. Only he Grace(empowerment of Christ) can empower you to live a life pleasing to God. Living pleasing to God, it is no longer you that lives but Christ. The life you now live is controlled and governed by Christ!!
Romans 8 Relationship with the Holy Spirit is the only way gain right standing with God, live a life pleasing to Him and live an overcoming victorious life. Without the Holy Spirit this is impossible!!
Without the spirit we our minds are against God and spiritually dead. Thus is is absolutely impossible to please God. In our own abilities it would be far easier and more possible for human beings to learn to fly like birds than please God. That is how impossible it is to please God apart from the divine empowerment (grace) given by the Holy Spirit!!
8:11 The Spirit raised Christ from the dead and when Christ lives he you, He spiritually resurrects your mortal body to live in the Spirit as Jesus did on this earth!
Living without the spirit = spiritual death
Living with the Spirit = completely free from earthly desires and Become children of God and heirs to everything God is and has. As an earthy King trains and prepares His son to rule, the Father uses Suffering and the training ground of this life to continually Unlock our inheritance and make us into kings and priests.
19 all creation is yearning and longing for the day when Gods children will be mature and ready to receive their inheritance and once again have dominion over the earth fulfilling The Fathers will and kingdom on earth as in heaven.
The Father has sovereignly decided to give man control over the earth. This dominion was lost to Satan in the garden but Jesus won it back at the cross making it possible for a new race of beings just like Jesus would fulfill the Fathers plan from the very beginning to have dominion and Govern the earth as ambassadors with the Fathers heart.
31 predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren
The Father works sometimes despite situations to use this training ground of this earthly life to prepare us to mature us as His children. The Father is more concerned about our eternal well being and maturing us than earthly comfort. Like any plant intense heat (or trials in our life) often enable the most rapid periods of spiritual growth.
38 if God is for us how on earth can I worry about any detail of my life. Why I am I do illogical and insane?? If the Creator of the universe who put the stars in place, overcame thousand of kings and armies in the OT what on earth am I so worried about. Sure God could defeat an entire army and kill 185000 enemy soldiers in one night but I don’t know if he can protect me! He can rain down food from heaven to feed an infinte number of people in the wilderness or Jesus multiplied food, but I am worried God can’t provide for me or my family?? He can miraculously heal people and even raise them from the dead, but I dont know if he can heal my specific problem.
Do you hear how crazy this sounds?? That is because it is totally insane. Our greatest problem is we take ourselves too seriously. If God do this before what makes your life so special or different that you think somehow God would not be able to do this in your life.
Romans 9 have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. Getting to such a depth of relationship where your heart breaks as deeply as the Father’s heart for His children.
True Israel = heart condition; Israel (Jacob) are those whose hearts are continually wrestling with God to know Him more.
Romans 10 trying to be made right and please God apart from Christ is insane and impossible! Christ is the end of the law and the end of our own strivings and efforts because being buried with Him in baptism it is no longer I that live but Christ in me the hope of becoming like the Father in every way and completing the Fathers mission.
Romans 11 if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness:
Romans 12 the only reasonable logical response to The King rescuing you from the prison of eternal chains and death is to completely give him your life. You owe Him Everything. When a slave is rescued from an awful kingdom they live the rest of their lives totally indebted and serving their rescuer. Their devotion to their savior is so extreme they would take a bullet or die for that person.
Our greatest problem in life (and deception from the enemy) is we forget and fail to recognized what we have been rescued from ( eternal unending torment and complete separation from God). Failing to understand the depths of how Christ rescued me, prevents me from understanding how desperately I need Him and what He has saved me from.
If Jesus is merely a nice friend who will bless me and give me a nice life, He does not deserve my complete devotion and I am not indebted to Him. However if Jesus is my Savior who rescued me from the most wicked kingdom of darkness and then made me a king and heir of the greatest kingdom in the history of the world, then I owe Him everything. If this is the case me only logical response would be to spend every moment of the remainder of my life serving Him. To do anything else would be insane and unthinkable. In heroic movies all humanity concurs with this train of thought. “Jesus I owe you my life”! Because you have rescued me from the worst of captivity every moment of my life now rightfully belongs to you.
Our lives doubly belong to God. He created us and the creation is deeply indebted to its Creator. Then He twice purchased possession of our lives when Jesus redeemed us.
It’s one thing to be rescue or once indebted to someone. But recognizing the Father has doubly possessed my life it would be totally insane to devote one thought or moment of my life to living for myself or creating my own plans.
Romans 12:2 transform or be conformed. There is such pressure to confirm unless you actively seek continual transformation in every area of your life, you will be conformed to the world. As a canoer paddling upstream the moment you stop seeking transformation you will lose all progress and start drifting further and further to be conformed to the world. People who seek God in their teen years then settle down in life and stop seeking transformation will lose all progress and be conformed. This is why we must continually seek transformation. This is only possible thru the Holy Spirit (Romans 1-8). Without the Holy Spirit transformation is impossible and though you can try to please God you will be conformed to religious forms and the world and be completely unable to please God and live in His kingdom.
To know God And live in His kingdom requires continual transformation. This can only be fueled and empowered by the Spirit.
12:21 overcome evil with good
Romans 13 motivation to Godly conduct
knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
14 put on the Lord Jesus Christ and since it’s is no longer you that live it will be impossible to do anything other than Christs will.
Put on the Lord Jesus Christ. As you have been buried in baptism (5-6; gal) Jesus Christ has picked up His life in you. The life you are now Living is governed and guided by the Spirit to live the resurrection life that Jesus walked in on this earth. The kingdom of heaven invading earth. Jesus came to unite the two realms the Fathers will being done on heaven as on earth and as His hands and feet living on the earth He has called us to continue this mission.
Paul urges and reminds us to daily and intentionally think about put on Jesus Christ. Finish His mission on this earth. Just as king passes his scepter, crown and robe to his son, so Jesus has passed on all authority on heaven and earth to accomplish the Fathers eternal will. Putting on Christ, is putting on his robe, crown and mission to fulfill the Fathers will and bring the kingdom of heaven to this earth.
Romans 14 don’t get hung up on temporal religious rules!!
All these things will pass away so is so foolish to get caught up on such things; they only distract you from Living in and growing in Gods eternal kingdom.
Romans 15 strong must support/disciple weak
15:13 the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Hope joy peace and all the fruits of the spirit can only come thru an active and vibrant relationship with the Holy Spirit in your life!!
Romans 16 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
The Spirtual taking over of the kingdom, Satan cast out or heaven and The King comes riding on a white horse conquering and setting up His kingdom on the earth.
1 Cor 1
the cross seems like complete foolishness to all that are perishing (die and lose your life) but to those who have walked thru the cross have discovered the power of God (resurrected to Christs life, all power and authority; it’s the only way to find true life).
29 That no flesh may glory in His presence. Until you walk thru the cross and lose your life you are useless to God. He cannot give you power and authority to carry His kingdom mission because then you can glory that it was by your intellect or own ability.
God is waiting and yearning for you to completely surrender and lose your life so He can Unlock your inheritance all power and authority of heaven to accomplish His eternal will in the earth and do greater works than Jesus has done
Our only joy and glorying in life should be in the Father. The Father is the only source of all joy and happiness, every perfect earthly gift and joy only originates from one source. The Father Himself is the only source of true life and happiness both in this present life and for all eternity to come.
1 Cor 2:5 what is your faith based on?? Relationship with he Father is the only source of faith. The most eloquent preaching and even the detailed theological study cannot produce faith. Though both are essential for Spiritiual growth and faith development until you discover a true personal and close relationship with God it is impossible to have true faith.
I have more faith in my best friend than any other person because I have a deeper mor personal relationship with them than any other person. In the same way Faith in God only comes knowing Him personally and intimately.
2:10 God reveals His character nature and plans only thru The Spirit. Therefore A vibrant dynamic relationship with the Person of the Holy Spirit is essential to knowing the God and understanding His plans and purposes in the earth. Through theological study it is possible to learn an infinite of information about God but Without a daily relationship with the Holy Spirit it is impossible to truly know Him. One may read an entire book of the taste of chocolate, attend weekly meeting about the taste of chocolate and even devote their entire life to study about chocolate but until you taste it for yourself you will have no idea What it is like.
Going to church, attending bible school and even devote your life to learning more about God but until you discover a personal relationship with Him you will have no idea what He is really like.
This is why the psalmnist urges Taste and see that the Lord is good. Until you taste and see your concept of God will be so pathetically small. Your concept of God directly impacts every area of life. If our conception of God is small then our faith and belief will be vary small. This is why the more you know and taste of the Lord, Your faith and belief grows as He becomes infinitely larger in your eyes.
2:16 it is impossible to know God’s infinite mind. If we can’t even begin to fathom the infinite nature of God how could even dream of knowing His thoughts. Impossible. To anyone in the Old Testament it would be inconceivable to know the mind of God.
Yet as children of God we have been given the mind of Christ. If only we would realize the vast depths and incredible significance of this!! Paul directly ties this thought to the preceding idea of knowing the Father’s heart and mind. With the mind of Christ you have the ability to know the Father’s thoughts. Jesus always knew exactly what the Father was thinking and if we have His mind, so can we!!
With the mind of Christ Jesus is in complete control of our every thought and proceeding actions.
We should not settle for anything less than operating in the mind of Christ At all times. Yet we are so content to settle for so much less. Tragically if I am honest with myself I am content to live my nice Christian life but always living in the mind of Christ might complicate things or make me do things I don’t want to do. As human beings we are so foolish creatures because often the things that make us uncomfortable and that we try to avoid is the only place we will be truly happy. We pursue comforts, safety and predictability then upon successfully reaching this state realize our life is mundane and boring.
Imagine devoting your entire existence for 55 years to living the American dream, you have millions, security and comfort. But now what? Eventually traveling you have been everywhere. The novelty of being able to do anything you want soon wears off and you realize you sacrificed so much for so many years to live a safe, comfortable yet boring and pathetic existence! Living for yourself becomes more and more pathetic overtime. Though you May have great riches One is relationally and spiritually poor with a very pathetic boring life.
Really? That is it you devoted your entire life just to live this boring predictable life?? I don’t get it!!
Alternatively Totally give God complete control of your life is the greatest adventure a human being could embark on. What we fail to recognize and preach is that such a life is not only eternally rewarding it is also brings the most earthly joy as well! There is no life like it!! All else pales in comparison. Both in this life and the next the individual who is following Gods perfect track for their life Is far more satisfied, joyful and richer than the rich billion who lived for himself.
many christian movement that seeks to become like the American dream have taken the Infinite earthly adventure of simply following Gods perfect plan into a shallow American dream.
1 Cor 3 Jesus Christ the only foundation. If your salvation is based on a prayer you prayed, your ability to keep the commandments or anything you did on your own then you have built on the wrong foundation.
13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
No question accepting Christ means you are saved but are you content to just live however be saved by fire and just barely make it. I want to pour my entire life into running this race and finish well. how you live this life matters!
Time not money is the most valuable resource. Every moment living for God and accomplishing His will in the earth is producing eternal rewards. All time spent living for temporal earthly things by very definition will be destroyed by fire because temporal things are just that temporal. How are you investing your life?? How much of today is invested in eternal things?? How much time are wasting investing into temporal pursuits??
3:16 do you realize you are Gods temple?? If I actually believed this how differently I would think, act and live. Its highly illogical that We act differently and more holy when we go to church wanting to respect Gods temple but we are Gods temple 24/7.
22 This earth, life, all things in this present world and all things in eternity future are all Yours!!
If you truly understood what this means you would be overwhelmed with joy!! All things are Yours!! So many of us praying and longing for the day the earth is restored and we have total authority but Christ has already given you all things. We just need to grow up and learn to walk in them. As a son of the king we possess and have authority over the entire kingdom. But we must come to a place of maturity to exercise this authority and power to walk as a true king and priest. (gal 5)
1 Cor 4 stewards must be found faithful. Nothing on this earth belongs to you. Everything in your life is a gift that God has made you a steward of. This is the trial run and based on your ability to be a faithful steward with everything you have on this earth, He will give you more or less responsibility in eternity (Matt 22 parable of stewards). I need to daily reminds myself nothing
I posses is my own. I must seek God daily to be a faithful steward of everything I have been given financial, relationships, time, resources and all aspects of life.
20 kingdom of God not in word but power in the Holy Spirit. So often our Christian lives are just a lot of hot air. We can listen to great preaching and have a great biblical understanding but where is the power? Where is the presence of Gods Spirit in your daily life. Many Christians are trying very hard to live biblical lives and diligently seek God but without the Spirit your life is powerless.
1 Cor 6 how ridiculous that children of God ask lowly earthly governments and judges to judge between them.
6:20 you have been bought with a price. In our modern day culture without slaves the full meaning of this is lost When you sell something you no longer have any control over it. Since we no longer have slaves pretend you purchase am Artificial Intelligence robot. The moment you purchase it you have complete control over it 24/7. Every moment of everyday you determine how it will think/act and speak. Total control. Paul employs this very notion to explain the type of control God should have over your life. He has purchased you and you owe Him everything. 24/7 your every thought word and action now belongs and is determined by Him. He has purchased you so He should have complete say over your entire life.
We think it’s nice and thoughtful of us giving God an hour of our time on Sunday or Wednesday night or devoting time to read our bible everyday. This is great but we fail to realize He rightfully owns and deserves complete control of our every thought action and word. He has purchased us with the Highest price and yet has given us the freewill choice to use this freedom to follow Him or live for ourselves. Our only logical response is to become a bondservent of our Savior and King 24/7
Your Spirit and body are owned by God anyway. It would be completely insane to consider doing anything else with Gods property!!
Imagine God gives you something and tells you to watch over it. Would you ever dare to consider misusing or Doing anything else with it. God said here I have given ou a body and spirit watch over it. How can I have the audacity of consider doing anything else??
1 Cor 7 each person has a unique path to walk. If you have questions about marriage or anything else in your life. Just completely give yourself to following Gods plan for your life and He will orchestrate every area of your life beyond your wildest dreams. If you worry and focus on all the details you will miss out on the incredible plan God has for you. If you Gods kingdom your sole priority He will take care of the rest and will provide for you beyond your wildest expectations!!
24 simply abide in and give yourself to fulfilling Gods kingdom plan and He will take care of the rest.
33 the marriage trap – But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife
Your spouse must be the most important earthly thing in life but they become an idol if pleasing/knowing them becomes more important than God.
1 Cor 9:19 though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
Christ has set you free but what will you do with your freedom? Live how you want or devote your entire life to serve Him. There is only one logical response 1 Cor 6 & rom 12.
Paul sought to become all things to all people trying to be relevant and relate to every person based on their background.
24 do you realize you are in the greatest race in history far greater than the Olympics!! Imagine an individual in the triathlon event aimlessly touring the streets of London stopping wondering between stores and taking in the sights as they meander along the race course.
What would you say to this person?? Are you insane?? Don’t you realize you are in the greatest race in history?? How can you walk and aimlessly your London when you have a chance to win an Olympic gold medal!
How foolish you are throwing away a once in a lifetime opportunity!
If this athlete seems foolish than we are a million times more foolish. These athletes spend thousands of hours training for a medal that will rust and a crown that fades. If the prize of our race is Infinitely greater should we not train more intensely than these athletes??
Yet the greatest tragedy is many of us “run” like the tourist athlete and are just on tour in this life doing whatever we want!! Do you realize how insane that is?? If you are in the greatest race in the history of the world, truly only a once in lifetime opportunity racing for an eternal crown, how on earth can you not run??
Many of us are so comfortable we have forgotten there is even a race to run. Francis chan balance beam YouTube video how will you be rewarded based on how you are running this race??
Are you running this race or just on a leisurely stroll. Paul was so intense about this He said I train and discipline my body and soul to do whatever it takes to win. I am not running with uncertainty or just to get a participation ribbon, I am running to win.
Too many of us are running the Christian race to win a participation ribbon!!
Every waking moment this consumed Paul’s every thought
and every decision He made was based on how can run with every ounce of strength and finish this race well.
Forgetting all that is behind and pressing on with all my heart!!
1 Cor 10 Israel experienced far more miraculous supernatural events yet their hearts were never changed!! The greatest miracle is the transformation of our hearts! Until God changes our hearts we will wonder in the wilderness and will never be able to enter into the promiseland.
God is faithful and as we seek His intervention will always intervene and empower us to walk through any circumstance.
23 live to glorify God. Rescued from the law you are completely free from all regulations but all things are not beneficial.
1 Cor 11 the Lords supper. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord
1 Cor 12 Spiritual gifts given to every person.
12:12 One body
1 Cor 13 with Gods agape love flooding my heart I am nothing.
1 Cor 14 Pray in the Spirit with understanding what you are praying about. Prophecy
1 Cor 15:12 if Christ has not risen your faith is worthless and futile. Likewise if your faith is not based solely on Christ it is worthless and futile.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
The Resurrection Body
35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: 37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: 38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
49 we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
1 Cor 16 13 Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. 14 Let all your things be done with charity.
2 Cor 1 experiencing Christ suffering brings greater supernatural consolation.
9 we had the sentence of Death upon our lives but Christ rescued us so we can only trust and depend on Him alone!!
2 Cor 2 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
2 cor chapter summaries
Your lives are epistles written on our hearts.
we are incompletely insufficient of ourselves and our only sufficiency and source of life is found in the Father alone.
6 following the mere letter of scripture brings condemnation and under the law but the spirit gives freedom and brings life.
7-12 The incredible glory residing in Moses after meeting with God is mere shadows of the glory that awaits those who personally walk with the Father as children of God.
14 Only a personal relationship with Christ can remove the veil and blindness of our hearts. Until one personally discovers Christ you are only in religion.
17 where the Spirit is Lord there is complete freedom and Gods kingdom is set up. Any heart that comes to a place of complete surrender the two realms of heaven and earth become one. The Fathers will and kingdom comes on earth as it is in heaven.
18 But we all, with uncovered face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image, from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Are you daily beholding the glory of the Lord? In an old and lesser Moses knew God so deeply and his face shone as the sun, thru Christ we can know God deeper than any human being in history? The veil to the Holy of Holies has been opened and all obstacles have been removed, what is holding you back?
2 cor 4 the enemy is terrified of us discovering who we can become as children of God so he desperately works overtime blinding the hearts of all inhabitants of the earth.
6 the Father is revealed to you in the face of Jesus Christ. Jesus is also the Word of God in the flesh, so as we read the scripture we are beholding the face of Jesus and the Father can reveal Himself to us. The more we surround ourselves with scripture the more the Father will reveal Himself to you. So many people say they want to know God but if you really do want to know Him will devote as much time as possible to read His word!
16 compared to the eternal glory that awaits even the most difficult circumstances in this life is a light affliction. Awakening to an eternal prespective is the only way you will be able to endure and overcome the trials of this life. From this prespective you can clearly see everything in this life is a light affliction compared to what awaits you.
18 what is truly real? The temporal things seem real that they are only shadows and a mere illusion. This earthy life appears so real but it is only a virtual reality simulation. Everything you see in this world is fleeting away and in the truest sense none of it really existed because in eternity all that will remain of this present world is memories of what was. The eternal world is the only thing that is real. we are seated with Christ in heavenly places and walk as citizens of this world even now.
2 cor 5 when our earthly temporary body is dissolved we will be fully transformed to our true selves spirit soul and body.
Just as a catapillars pathetic buglike body is dissolved to become a beautiful butterfly, so we long and yearn for the day when our lowly earthly forms are dissolved and we break free from this pathetic cocoon and are transformed into our true selves.
The budding leaves of the New Testament suggest spring is on the way and this transformation is about to be complete. With all creation our hearts yearn to be clothed of our true and immortal nature.
10 do you realize you will stand before the Great King and give account for every earthly action. We desperately need live fully aware of this every moment of every day.
17 in Christ your old life no longer exists. You really have become an entirely new race of being just like Christ in everyway.
20 called to be ambassadors. What does it mean to be an ambassador of the heavenly kingdom? An ambassador is only an extension of the Fathers heart and will. This requires knowing the Father and understanding His eternal plan.
2 Cor 8 do not receive the grace of God in vain. As children of God the Father has given us infinite divine empowerment yet so often we inhibit this grace to fully work in our lives.
4 today is the day of salvation if you hear Gods voice. Hearing the Fathers voice daily is the only way we can walk in His eternal mission and fulfill His eternal plan.
2 cor 9 God is able to make all grace abound to you. We have not because we ask not. The Father has unlimited divine blessing He is just waiting to bestow on us if only we will live a fully surrendered life and walk in obedience.
2 cor 10. This the greatest battle in the history of the world. The spiritual war taking place on the earth is far greater than any war in the history of the world.
Are you daily engaged in fighting the Lords battle or are you living as a civilian just living a comfortable life caught up in your own little life. The enemy works so deceptively to progressively lull is into deeper sleep and coma to take us out of the battle. The enemy will gladly give you anything to distract you and take you out of fighting the Lords battle.
The Father is awakening His children from coma to realize their weapons of the Spirit and the Word. Learning to wield these spiritual weapons is the key to being able to participate in the Lords army.
2 cor 11 2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy; for I have espoused you to one Husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
5 For I consider myself not a whit lower than the very chiefest apostles.
2 cor 12 4 and how he was caught up into Paradise, and heard unspeakable words which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
5 Of such a one will I glory, yet of myself I will not glory, except in mine infirmities.
9 “My grace is sufficent for thee, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. ” Most gladly therefore will I glory rather in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
God is waiting for us to come to the place of complete helplessness and utter dependence on Him. God desires to flood your life with all the power and authority of heaven however until God is in complete control of your life you will use His power and authority for your own glory. And no flesh can glory in His presence.
2 Cor 13 5 Examine yourselves whether ye be in the faith. It is important to continually reflect does every area of my life, every thought, every action and every word is a clear reflection of Christ.
1 tim 1:9 the Law is not made for a righteous man for God has written a higher law on His heart.
The law is made to lead disobedient to make people realize their need for Christ.
2 tim 2
1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,
2 for kings and for all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
2 tim 3 16 And beyond controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
2 tim 4 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils,
8 For bodily exercise profiteth little, but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
2 tim 5 21 I charge thee before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
2 tim 6 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment, let us be therewith content.
9 But those who would be rich fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil; and while some have coveted after it, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Until you are content with having nothing money will only be an idol in your life.
15 which He in His times shall show — He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
16 who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto, whom no man hath seen nor can see, to whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen.
17 Charge those who are rich in this world that they be not haughty, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
18 that they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate,
19 laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner; but be thou a partaker of the afflictions of the Gospel according to the power of God,
9 who hath saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but in accordance with His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
10 but is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death and hath brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel.
The Kingdom beginning on earth. Two thousand years ago I came to bring the kingdom of God to the this earth. It was more beneficial that I left so the kingdom of heaven could overtake the entire earth at a much more expedient rate.
12 for which cause I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed. For I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that Day.
2 tim 2
1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
3 Endure thou therefore hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man who warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sake, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.
11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with Him, we shall also live with Him;
12 if we suffer, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us;
13 if we believe not, yet He abideth faithful; He cannot deny Himself.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth, and some to honor and some to dishonor.
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared for every good work.

5 having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. From such turn away.
7 ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
17 that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly equipped for all good works.
2 tim 4
7 I have fought a good fight; I have finished my course; I have kept the faith.
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me on that Day — and not to me only, but unto all those also who love His appearing.
17 Notwithstanding, the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear. And I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work and will preserve me unto His heavenly Kingdom, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is according to godliness,
2 in hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the world began,
15 Unto the pure, all things are pure; but unto those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
16 They profess that they know God, but in their works they deny Him, being abominable and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world,
13 looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ,
14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous for good works.
15 These things speak and exhort, and rebuke with all authority.
4 But after the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared,
5 He saved us not by works of righteousness which we had done, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration, and by the renewing of the Holy Ghost,
3:3 we are all often still so foolish because we often continue to depend on our own works
7 that, being justified by His grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
16 not now as a servant, but more than a servant: as a brother beloved, especially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh and in the Lord.
1 John 1
2 ( for the Life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show unto you that Eternal Life, which was with the Father and was manifested unto us );
3 that which we have seen and heard, declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us; and
truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
This then is the message which we have heard from Him and declare unto you: that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.
7 But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1 john 2
nd if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
2 And He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 And hereby we know that we know Him: if we keep His commandments.
4 He that saith, “I know Him, ” and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar and the truth is not in him.
No longer your own ability but the law written on your heart. As you surrender the Father reprograms your life to desire only the Fathers will.
6 He that saith that he abideth in Him, ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.
I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known Him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the Word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
18 Little children, it is the last time. And as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists, whereby we know that this is the last time.
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denieth the Father and the Son.
Deny Christ by your life you are working against what He is trying to accomplish in this world. So many think I will go to chruch and give him a part of my life. If you are not full out for my kingdom in many ways your life is probably working against me. A kingdom divided.
27 But the anointing which ye have received from Him abideth in you, and ye have no need that any man teach you.
28 And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He shall appear we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
29 If ye know that He is righteous, ye know that every one who doeth righteousness is born of Him.
1 John 3
1 Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God! Therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.
2 Beloved, now we are the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
3 And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, eeven as He is pure.
6 Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not; whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you. He that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him, and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 By this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither is he that loveth not his brother.
Maybe I should try harder to love people. No God needs to change your heart.
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
16 Hereby we perceive the love of God: because He laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart and knoweth all things.
21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then we have confidence toward God.
22 And whatsoever we ask we receive of Him, because we keep His commandment and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
23 And this is His commandment: that we should believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.
24 And he that keepeth His commandments dwelleth in Him, and He in him. And hereby we know that He abideth in us: by the Spirit which He hath given us.
1 john 4
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God.
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God, and every one that loveth is born of God and knoweth God.
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us: that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
If you are living thru someone else then you can no longer survive on your own. If that other person is removed you would die and be unable to function. This is such a powerful place where you have come to complete surrender then the Father can work thru your life and accomplish His will on the earth.
Tragically we are often able to go days or even hours without Jesus living thru us.
13 Hereby we know that we dwell in Him and He in us: because He hath given us of His Spirit.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath for us. God is love, and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 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.
18 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.
19 We love Him, because He first loved us.
20 If a man say, “I love God, ” and hateth his brother, he is a liar. For he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loveth God love his brother also.
1 John 5
4 For whosoever is born of God overcometh the world. And this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
6 This is He that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
7 For there are three that bear record in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, and the water, and the blood; and these three agree in one.
20 And we know that the Son of God is come and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true; and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and Eternal Life.
21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we may receive a full reward.
9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ hath both the Father and the Son.
3 For I rejoiced greatly when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.
4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
5 Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren and to strangers,
Revelation 1 the King speaks with John an urgent message that must be shared with all believers of the current state of the Assembly, addresses problems and what they must do to change. true prophecy from the Fathers heart will always involve a call to repentance and call for a greater turning to the Lord.
Rev 2 my people have left their first love and have allowed other things to creep into their hearts/churches. The great danger is everything looks the same but you are changing and progressively falling into a deeper coma!!
If a relationship with the Father is not the all consuming passion of your life it is Inevitable that other passions will slowly creep in and eventually takeover your heart.
Rev 3 kept my word (it has become you) and so you live in my nature and have not denied my name. You have little strength become weak so I could become strong in you!!1
I have the key of David to the Great kingdom so I am opening the door for you to live and walk in the kingdom!! I also write on you the new name because your citizenship (entire life where you live and reside daily) is now in heaven.
To the rest not living this way please repent. Live Holy as I am Holy and have my spirit annoit your eyes to spiritually awaken you from coma.
All your life I have been standing at door of your hearts knocking and intervening in your life desperately trying to get your attention!! Will you cast everything aside and let me in?? Will you completely surrender all and make your heart my holy temple where I can permanently reside?? Many of you do things the force me to leave your heart because I have no part in darkness!!
I finished this mission so I could walk with you here for all of eternity. It is a tragedy and makes my heart so sad that so few find and walk in eternity during their earthly lives. The pleasures and treasures of this world have put the vast majority Of believers in such a deep coma they cannot even hear me speak or even aware they can walk here during their earhl lives.
Like the dwarfs in the last battle they are blind to what is right in front of them!! They are in such a deep coma they live in this tiny awful stable of the temporal world when the endless beauty and splendor of eternity has awaited them all of this time!!
True overcoming is overcoming from the coma of temporal virtual reality and awakening to your identity as a child of King seated with Christ in heavenly places. True overcoming is surrendering everything to walk in unbroken fellowship with the Father just as Jesus did.
Rev 4 to those who surrender and overcome a door to heaven is opened to walk in far deeper relationship with the Father know His heart. Living before the throne of heaven everything else becomes worthless and meaningless in life compared to the greatness and glory of the King. Seek to always live before the throne continually aware of the glory, granduer, power and glory of the Father. The more this becomes the everpresent reality of your life, the more you will be changed into His glorious image and likeness.
Rev 5 opening of the scroll. Our human minds cannot begin to comprehend, honor or worship the King for what He has done. Jesus alone can open the scrolls of our lost lives. He alone can open the book of the kingdom of heaven and enable us to walk and live in this glorious place!!
The King is so worthy no words or act of worship can even begin to revere and honor Him for who He is and what He has done. It would have been enough just to save us but He has done so much more by taking us into His kingdom making us children of God and assigning us to rule as priests and Kings in the earth!!
The King is so worthy all heaven and earth shall worship Him for all eternity without end! You have finally come to a place of continual unending worship!!
Rev 6 the opening of the seals of the scroll of the new world. In the opening of the seals marks the opening up of the new world and the closing of this age.
During this transitional period the seals are bringing this age to a close through judgement while opening up the new world of grace.
As this world gets darker And dying out, the new world dawning on the horizon and growing.
The Father by His great mercy has perfectly designed things this way. Revelation reveals the unending mercy of God. His judgments on the earth are only a revealing of His great mercy trying to compel every human being thru drastic earthly tribulation so that none may perish. Revelation reveals the vast depths of mercy and the cry of the Fathers heart that all shall be saved.
Rev 7 1-8 faithful sealed nothing can touch them because they belong to the king
9-17 a second vision likely “after” the heavens are folded up like a scroll and a picture of the dawning of the new age (further exemified in rev 14/21)
Rev 6/8/16 succession of the Fathers mercy thru these judgments compelling all humanity to turn to Him before the world ends!!
Rev 10-13 detecting different elements of the Ambassadors missions in the final chapter of this age.
Rev 14:1-5 a realtime description of the lives of the faithful and the key to overcoming victory in the final chapter. The Father is raising up an army who are awakes to realize they are seated in heavenly places with Christ and as they walk with the Father they become like Him in every way.
14-20 after seals and trumpet warnings of judgment the harvest of the kingdom finally arrives. First the weeds are picked out (matt 13) then the faithful are harvested and brought into the Fathers eternal kingdom (transition period watch the old world fade and then see the coming of new heavens/earth.
Rev 15-18 All wickedness on the earth is judged and dealt with. Rev 19 the Final Battle of this age all evil banished from the earth for a time (whatever a thousand years means) and the kingdom (the Assembly) set up on the earth.
Rev 20 The Kingdom of God set up on the earth. What a Privelege to be born into this great hour when the Kingdom is set up on The earth for a time (whatever a thousand years means)(saints from previous generations not united yet).
12 after Satan released to corrupt any who are already corrupt and He is cast into the lake of fire. Now the world (as we know it) comes to an end and all people from all of history are caught up to the great white throne for final judgment.
Rev 21 after the final judgement all things are made new. Old heaven And earth pass away
