11 Jesus answered, “Thou couldest have no power at all against Me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore he that delivered Me unto thee hath the greater sin. ”
19 And Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was: JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
24 They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be, ” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which saith, “They parted My raiment among them, and for My vesture did they cast lots. ” These things therefore the soldiers did.
How crazy is it that this happened? If God foreknew and wrote about such an arbitrary event how much more does He know and has overseen every detail of your life.
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, “It is finished. ” And He bowed His head and gave up the ghost.
15 Jesus said unto her, “Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou? ” She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said unto Him, “Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away. ”
16 Jesus said unto her, “Mary! ” She turned herself and said unto Him, “Rabboni! ” ( which is to say, “Master” ).
17 Jesus said unto her, “Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say unto them, `I ascend unto My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God. ‘
22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said unto them, “Receive ye the Holy Ghost.
23 Whosoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever sins ye retain, they are retained. ”
Learning Spirit Breathing deeply of the Holy Spirit.
We have seen the Lord. ” But he said unto them, “Unless I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into His side, I will not believe. ”
29 Jesus said unto him, “Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed. Blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed. ”
30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book.
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, ye might have life through His name.
3 Simon Peter said unto them, “I am going fishing. ” They said unto him, “We also go with thee. ” They went forth and entered into a boat immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
15 So when they had dined, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me more than these? ” He said unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee. ” He said unto him, “Feed My lambs. ”
16 He said to him again the second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me? ” He said unto Him, “Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee. ” He said unto him, “Feed My sheep. ”
17 He said unto him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, lovest thou Me? ” Peter was grieved because He said unto him the third time, “Lovest thou Me? ” And he said unto Him, “Lord, Thou knowest all things. Thou knowest that I love Thee. ” Jesus said unto him, “Feed My sheep.
18 Verily, verily I say unto thee, when thou wast young, thou girded thyself and walked whither thou wouldest; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. ”
19 This spoke He, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said unto him, “Follow Me. ”
20 Then Peter, turning about, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at supper, and said, “Lord, who is he that betrayeth Thee? ”
21 Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “Lord, and what shall this man do? ”
22 Jesus said unto him, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou Me. ”
23 Then this saying went abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die. Yet Jesus had not said unto him, “He shall not die, ” but, “If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? ”
24 This is the disciple who testifieth of these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.
25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
2 As it is written in the Prophets: “Behold, I send My messenger before Thy face, who shall prepare Thy way before Thee. ”
3 “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: `Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. ‘”
10 And straightway coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him.
11 And there came a voice from Heaven, saying, “THOU ART MY BELOVED SON, IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED. ”
12 And immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.
14 Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God
15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent ye and believe the Gospel. ”
27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority he commandeth even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.
28 And immediately His fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.
45 But he went out and began to proclaim it much and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, and was outside in desert places. And they came to Him from every quarter.
A life fully dependent and surrendered to the Spirit can accomplish far more than an army of Christians doing ministry in their own strength.
17 When Jesus heard it, He said unto them, “They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. ”
21 “No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment, else the new piece that filled it up teareth away from the old, and the rent is made worse.
22 And no man putteth new wine into old wineskins, else the new wine doth burst the skins, and the wine is spilled and the skins will be marred. But new wine must be put into new wineskins. ”
Even our present understanding and mindset cannot fully understand the things of God. We need to continually allow the Father to transform our minds and take us higher into His eternal plans and purposes.
27 And He said unto them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.
28 Therefore the Son of Man is Lord also of the Sabbath. ”
The sabbath is to fully come into a continual abiding in the Father. The true Sabbath is lived by continually depending on and relying on the Father. The True Sabbath complete and continual yielding and utter dependence every moment of every day.
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
26 And if Satan rise up against himself and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house and despoil his goods, unless he will first bind the strong man; and then he will despoil his house.
28 “Verily I say unto you, all sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men and blasphemies, however they shall blaspheme;
29 but he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation”;
34 And He looked round about on those who sat about Him and said, “Behold, My mother and My brethren.
35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother. ”
11 And He said unto them, “Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the Kingdom of God; but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables,
13 And He said unto them, “Know you not this parable? And how then will ye know all parables?
14 The sower soweth the Word.
15 And these are they by the wayside, where the Word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately and taketh away the Word that was sown in their hearts.
16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground who, when they have heard the Word, immediately receive it with gladness;
17 but they have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time. Afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the Word’s sake, immediately they are offended.
18 And these are they which are sown among thorns, such as hear the Word,
19 but the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the Word, and it becometh unfruitful.
20 And these are they which are sown on good ground, such as hear the Word and receive it and bring forth fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred. ”
“Take heed what ye hear. With what measure ye mete it shall be measured to you; and unto you that hear shall more be given.
25 For he that hath, to him shall be given; and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath. ”
26 And He said, “So is the Kingdom of God as if a man should cast seed into the ground,
27 and should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring up and grow, he knoweth not how.
28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself: first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come. ”
30 And He said, “To what shall we liken the Kingdom of God? Or with what comparison shall we compare it?
31 It is like a grain of mustard seed which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that are in the earth.
32 But when it is sown, it groweth up and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches, so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it. ”
38 But He was in the hind part of the boat, asleep on a pillow; and they awoke Him and said unto Him, “Master, carest thou not that we perish? ”
39 And He arose, and rebuked the wind and said unto the sea, “Peace, be still. ” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And He said unto them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that ye have no faith? ”
41 And they feared exceedingly and said one to another, “What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? ”
With Jesus ever present in our lives we can be completely at peace even in life’s greatest storms.
1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
The presence of Jesus provides total assurance we will always make it to the other side.
5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones.
6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshiped Him,
7 and cried with a loud voice, and said, “What have I to do with Thee, Jesus, Thou Son of the Most High God? I adjure Thee by God that Thou torment me not! ”
27 when she had heard of Jesus, came up behind Him in the press of the crowd and touched His garment;
28 for she said, “If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole. ”
She recognized who Jesus was and understood His immeasurable power. Faith only comes by a personal knowing the power and person of Jesus.
11 And whosoever shall not receive you nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city. ”
31 And He said unto them, “Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while. ” For there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure, even so much as to eat.
32 And they departed into a desert place by boat privately.
Daily your Savior and Lover of your soul is calling you to come away with Him. Come away from the busyness of your day to have sweet fellowship with in. He continually knocks day and night on the door of your hearts yearning to commune with you.
Yet tragically we are so preoccupied with earthly pursuits and even ministry we cannot even hear His voice amidst the many things competing for our attention.
Am I too busy to spend even a few moments with my best friend and Lover of my soul. God help us. Without devoting the first moments of your day to the Lord it is doubtful if not impossible you will get anything meaningful or purposeful accomplish.
56 And whithersoever He entered, into villages or cities or the country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought Him that they might touch even the border of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made whole.
This happens in third world countries why not in North America. We have modern conveniences so we don’t need to depend on God for everything.
Father teach us how to become helplessly and completely dependent on you.
Is it possible to think you are pleasing to God but actually working against Him?
9 And He said unto them, “Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
Sometimes by keeping our religous traditions we are actually rejecting God.
13 thus making the Word of God of no effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered. And many like things do ye. ”
By our own actions, misunderstanding or even distortion of scripture inhibit God from moving in our lives and speaking to our hearts.
15 There is nothing from outside a man that, entering into him, can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
33 And He took him aside from the multitude and put His fingers into his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue.
34 And looking up to Heaven, He sighed and said unto him, “Ephphatha, ” that is, “Be opened. ”
12 And He sighed deeply in His spirit and said, “Why doth this generation seek after a sign? Verily I say unto you, there shall no sign be given unto this generation. ”
Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for My sake and the Gospel’s, the same shall save it.
36 For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
A Man is no fool to give what He cannot gain for that which He cannot lose.
37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
What are you earthly treasures are you living for and giving up a greater eternal inheritance.
You have only one and it soon shall pass.
Only that which is done for Christ shall last.
We daily trade away and forgo a greater eternal reward to pursue the foolish earthly desires that capture our hearts such as worldly possessions, passtimes and even relationships that we treasure more than Christ.
Make Christ your only treasure and you shall gain everything you have ever longed for. Make anything else your treasure and throw away precious moments that could have been used to gain for the Lamb. You have been made you God and these mere earthly shadows will leave empty, miserable and full of regret thinking of the precious moments that could have been used to gain for Christ.
Imagine when you will stand before the King and as every moment of your life is reviewed how will you feel at that moment about the moments you wasted on this earth.
On that day you will clearly understand the infinite cost Christ paid for you and will be appalled by not giving Him the glory He deserved. How could I live for other things when Christ gave everything for me?
I wish I didn’t pray such self focused prayers. I wished my Christianity wasn’t just about what I could get instead of what I could give to gain for the Lamb!!
Oh I wish I could have back every moment I have wasted and use it to gain for the Lamb instead of pursuing my own earthly ambitions. Looking into the Fathers eyes, I am so sorry.
Here before the throne I now see clearly.
Every day is important. Every minute is important. Every second is important to gain for the Lamb! Are you using every second of the day to gain for the Lamb?
38 Whosoever, therefore, shall be ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the Son of Man be ashamed when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels. ”
1 And He said unto them, “Verily I say unto you, that there are some of them that stand here who shall not taste of death till they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power. ”
5 And Peter spoke and said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three tabernacles: one for Thee, one for Moses, and one for Elijah–”
6 for he knew not what to say, for they were sore afraid.
7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “THIS IS MY BELOVED SON: HEAR HIM! ”
What is the significance of Moses and Elijah
And I spoke to thy disciples that they should cast him out, and they could not. ”
19 Jesus answered him and said, “O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? Bring him unto Me. ”
What does it mean to be faithless?
23 Jesus said unto him, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. ”
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief! ”
42 And whosoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe in Me to fall, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and he were cast into the sea.
43 And if thy hand cause thee to fall, cut it off. It is better for thee to enter into life maimed than, having two hands, to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched,
47 And if thine eye cause thee to fall, pluck it out. It is better for thee to enter into the Kingdom of God with one eye than, having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire,
and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
50 Salt is good, but if the salt has lost his saltness, with what will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another. ”
5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
Kingdom is living in a much higher calling.
15 Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. ”
17 And when He had gone forth onto the road, there came one running, and knelt before Him and asked Him, “Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? ”
18 And Jesus said unto him, “Why callest thou Me good? There is none good but One, that is, God.
21 Then Jesus, beholding him, loved him and said unto him, “One thing thou lackest:
There is something you are attatched to on this earth that is preventing you from entering my heavenly kingdom. We must continually lay down all treasures and desires at the foot of the cross. When we lay these earthly desires down they are resurrected and given back to us in we find the true fulfillment and expression of that desire.
25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God. ”
Requires a great humbling and bowing very low.
27 And Jesus, looking upon them, said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible. ”
31 But many that are first shall be last, and the last first. ”
38 But Jesus said unto them, “Ye know not what ye ask. Can ye drink of the cup that I drink of, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? ”

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!!
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Jesus is the Word of God in human form. He has called us to become the very same thing. We must not merely know Gods Word but allow it to take on human form and become the Word made flesh. It is one thing to read the Word but nothing compares to reading scripture and realizing that this verse is actually being fulfilled in my life.
16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. 33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Spirit.
A life completely flooded and governed by the Spirit. The Father is waiting and yearning to pour out the same unlimited measure of His Spirit on your life but He can only do this when God has complete control over your life. To the degree you surrender is the degree the Father can pour out His Spirit without measure upon your life.
The true baptism of the Holy Spirit is a life fully governed and regulated by the Holy Spirit. The two baptism are highly dependent upon each other!! The baptism of water is ending your old life and allowing Christ to take complete control of your life. The only way this is possible is if you are submerged (baptizo) in the Holy Spirit to govern your life, guide you in the ways of Christ and empower you to do His will. Without the power and baptism of the Spirit, the baptism of water is ineffective because it is impossible to live in newness of life without the Holy Spirit!!
41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
We found Him. We must continually be searching for the one whom our soul loves. To be among those who love and search for His appearing.
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
Rev 14 blessed are those who wash their robes now for in doing so you prepare yourself to be used mightily of God. The Father is raising an army of light with this of pure and humble hearts who have no darkness.
48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee
The Father has known us since before we were born. Do you realize you existed in The Fathers mind before the foundation of the world??
1:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.
Jesus uniting the two realms. Two thousand years ago a new kingdom began on earth and tragically it has for the most part laid dormant hidden away in the hearts of a small remnant for centuries. however now we have come to the hour of the grand finale when the kingdom of heaven shall completely overtake the earth and all other kingdoms shall be cast down. This is the very hour the Father revealed to Daniel over two millennia ago (Dan 2:44; 7:22).
John 2 the most difficult part of fulfilling Gods calling for your life is waiting!! So often we try to run ahead of God and fulfill our calling on our own ability and own strength. This is why like Moses God takes us thru the wilderness to humble you to realize I can do nothing of myself and I am completely dependent on the Spirit’s empowerment.
Until one learns this they are completely useless to the plans and purposes of God. As in any great army the King cannot empower lose cannons who are still doing whatever they want.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
As human beings waiting is our fatal flaw. Development in this area is our most desperate need in terms of becoming Christlike and fulfilling Gods plan for your life.
2:5-11 a very simple miracle where Jesus simply followed the Fathers leading. Where did Jesus come up with such a crazy idea? The Father revealed to Jesus exactly how to this miracle and Jesus simply followed what the Father showed Him.
The Father perfectly orchestrated The timing and even the prompting of marry for Jesus to do something to reveal the greatest truth in Jesus first miracle: the new wine is here. The Father has saved the best for the last chapters of history. And as we progress through all of eternity the glory and grandeur of the Father and His kingdom only progressively become sweeter and sweeter!!
16 the corruption of religion from the very beginning even to this day. Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
Hosea 6: the third day. The body of Christ is in the new day where it shall be fully complete and fulfill the Fathers eternal plan.
23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did. 24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, 25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.
If God have us all the power and authority of heaven how many of us would only follow the Fathers will as Jesus did??
3 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
What does it mean to be born again?? Recreated as brand new race of being exactly as Jesus Christ capable of knowing the Father and being lead of the Spirit. our old fallen nature is enmity with God (romans 6-7) until we die and are transformed and raised to newness of life in baptism it is impossible to know God, be lead of His Spirit and live in His kingdom. To see and live in the kingdom of God we must apply for new citizenship to become a resident there. Recreated in Christ we become part of the new race of eternal beings whose citizenship (entire life and place of origin) is heaven. As new eternal beings we have actually been born from above and born in the kingdom of heaven!!
5 Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Both are essential!! The true baptism of the Holy Spirit is a life fully governed and regulated by the Holy Spirit. The two baptism are highly dependent upon each other!! The baptism of water is ending your old life and allowing Christ to take complete control of your life. The only way this is possible is if you are submerged (baptizo) in the Holy Spirit to govern your life, guide you in the ways of Christ and empower you to do His will. Without the power and baptism of the Spirit, the baptism of water is ineffective because it is impossible to live in newness of life without the Holy Spirit!!
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
16 Out of the Fathers great love, He has given everything for you. Only in hopes that you might come home. The King of the Universe gave His very life and suffered the most awful death only in hopes of knowing you!! Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.
22 is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
The presence of light exposes all darkness. As God once again raises His holy standard in the earth it will force us to either change inaccurate misconceptions about God or continue in what we believe to be God. How Great the darkness when we Believe we are walking fully in the light yet have part darkness in us.
Edmund the dragon in voyage of the dawn treader. Are you willing to allow the light to fully expose you. It will be painful but it is the only way you can truly be set free!!
Father please expose any darkness still in my heart. All must be laid down for your kingdom to come and the captives set free.
Father take away everything in my heart that is not of you. I give up this dream earthly life you have given me and fast forward to my true life that awaits in your kingdom!!
27 receiving anything from heaven is not based on your own ability to conjecture up some faith words heavenly provision is sent to faithful ones who daily live by faith and seek to honor me.
27 A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven
35 the Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
If you believe someone is the King then they must have complete control of every aspect of your life. If you ate still in control of your own life then you believe Jesus is the Good Teacher but not King and Master of your life.
Jesus is more than the good teacher!!
John 4 Jesus continually breaks every barrier to search out and give life to those who are desperately seeking Him. Like many Jesus encountered she was a samaratian but a seeker and was looking for and yearning for the appearing the of the Lord.
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Before she could drink of eternal life she had to surrender all areas of her old life to Jesus and be willing to be transformed.
21 the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
True worship changed from external location to an internal expression of the heart.
23 The hour is now here when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The Father is longing and yearning for those who will worship Him through a vibrant intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit and by becoming the Word of truth in the flesh. When your life is completely surrendered and lead of the Holy Spirit and like Jesus your earthly life becomes the Word of Truth made flesh then you have become a true worshipper!! This is the highest expression of worship and what the Father yearns for and is desperately seeking in the earth.
34 my food and source of strength and life is found in doing the Will of the Father and finishing His work. Just as human beings are desperately dependent on oxygen to keep living moment by moment, Jesus and our new creation bodies are sustained by doing the will of the Father. Fulfilling the Fathers perfect will is the oxygen hat sustained Jesus every moment on earth and enabled Him to live the most difficult life any human being has ever walked. What is the source and strength of your life? What is your motivation for living? What makes you want to get up in the morning and drives you to get through the day??
37 Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
The harvest is ripe and the Father is desperately waiting and longing for children who surrender their life plans and dreams to only do the will of the Father and complete His Eternal plan. The final chapters of history can only be fulfilled when Gods children come to the place where doing the will of the Father becomes the source of your life and Sole purpose for living.
52 the primary purpose for miracles is to lead us to and further revel the person and power of Jesus Christ.
Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. 53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house
John 5:8 a certain man who was desperately seeking healing and change. When you seek me with all of your hearts then you will find me.
14 Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
Miracles require a response of total surrender and changing our ways. Without this transformation one will eventually end worse off then they were before.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise
The Father is waiting for us to come to this place so He can fill us with all the power and authority of heaven.
When you come to the place of complete surrender 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!!
John 5:20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
The Father was leading the son every step of the way not in His divinity but in His humanity. As a new creation being created after the likeness of Jesus we walk in the same relationship Jesus had with the Father. Not only is this possible the Fathers deepest longing is to commune and lead you as clearly and practically in your everyday life as He lead Jesus. We desperately need to raise out expectations and awareness and begin to pray for the Father to lead and speak to us in our everyday life.
(KJV) John 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
(KJV) John 5:23 That all [men] should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
(KJV) John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
To believe on Him is to honor Him as King in your life. Those who honor Jesus as the absolute Lord and King of their lives demonstrate that they really to believe Him. If you do not know Him as supreme King and Lord over your life then you really do not believe Jesus is who He says He is.
To truly believe is so simple yet we have made it so complex. If you believe a King has Ransomed your life there is only one logical way to respond Romans 12:1. Do I simply believe the reality of the Infinite glory and power of the King of the Universe. Who do you believe God is?
(KJV) John 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
Two applications both physically and spiritually dead. Jesus words are a fulfillment of Ezekiel 37.
(KJV) John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
This is power and the place The Father desires to bring every child of God. When our hearts are completely neutral and have no opinions or desires of ourselves then we will always do the perfect will of the Father in very situation and every circumstance.
(KJV) John 5:37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
Oh that this may be true of our lives! When we are following the Father so closely that His power and presence would bear witness that our lives are lead and operating under the power of heaven!!
(KJV) John 6:6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
How did Jesus know what to do? I only do what the Father shows me to do. The Father and all creation longs for Gods children to be at the place where we know exactly what to do in every situation and circumstance because we know the Fathers heart and automatically sense His direction and leading for every situation in our lives. Lead by the Spirit is the greatest adventure and only way to truly live life because though you never quite know what will happen next God will prepare you to respond adequately to every situation.
(KJV) John 6:15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
What would you do if people wanted to honor and exult you as a leader from God?? Instead of basking in exultation Jesus fled into the wilderness this would only deter and distract Him from Gods plan for His life. Everyday we desperately need Gods wisdom avoid any pitfalls and distractions that may seem like great opportunities but will only distract you from the mission God has called you to. As the enemy tempt Jesus, he daily tempts us with many great opportunities that will only distract us from Gods calling on our lives. This is why we desperately need the continual leading of the Holy Spirit to lead us in the Fathers perfect will. Man plans His steps but the Lord directs His steps. A mans way seems right in His own heart but unless we depend on the Lord with all our hearts and refuse to lean on our own understanding, this is the only way we will be able to stay on Gods perfect track for your life!
(KJV) John 6:19 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.
Why did Jesus appear to them like this. Tragically we are so amazed by such a simple event. But as new creation beings physical and natural laws now serve our needs as kingdom ambassadors instead of limit us.
(KJV) John 6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
Why do I seek Jesus? Is it for His presents or His presence?? Do I only seek Him when I am in trouble or need help or do I long and seek after His presence daily?? Israel in the wilderness sought God only for what He could do for them and though God gave them everything they wanted their spirits were completely bankrupt. Jesus will provide only that which you are seeking after! Do not waste time and effort seek mere physical miracles that will one day fade away. Seek His eternal presence and a personal relationship with the King of kings. This is far greater and enduring than the most incredible temporal blessings!!
(KJV) John 6:28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
Believe and honor the great King as Lord of your life! Complete surrender is the only way the Father can work through you and in you!!
(KJV) John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
Will you allow Jesus to become your daily bread?? Is your your source of food and life that wakes you up in the morning and gets you through the day.
(KJV) John 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
(KJV) John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Believe and honor the Great King from the heavenly kingdom. Bow to Him and join the great army of light.
(KJV) John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
The Father is desperately drawing every heart across the earth. It is not in us to seek God or yearn for Him. However from the very beginning the Father has been working in history and in the life of every individual to draw all men to Himself!!
(KJV) John 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
(KJV) John 6:57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
(KJV) John 7:6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
(KJV) John 7:30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
(KJV) John 7:37 In the last day, that great [day] of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.(KJV) John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Are you drinking deeply of the Holy Spirit every moment of your life. Just as Jesus you have with spirit without measure available to you but tragically we settle for so much less. What are you settling for today?? How can you drink deeply of the Spirit everyday. Stop holding your breath and start spiritually breathing.
(KJV) John 7:52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
Our preconceived ideas prevent us from really knowing and walking with Christ.
(KJV) John 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
How quick we are to judge others and how ignorant we are of our own shortcomings. God help us to stop comparing ourselves to others and become so intense and radical about purifying our own hearts!!
(KJV) John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Complete surrender And dying to ourself is the only way to banish all darkness from our lives and become permanently flooded with light. Any Unsurrendered desires or area of your life you are holding back means you are still in part dark and is preventing the Father from totally flooding your heart with His kingdom light.
(KJV) John 8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
As the race of new beings created in Jesus image we are also from above just as Jesus is!!
(KJV) John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Without the Son living in us we are mere temporal beings and will not abide forever!! The Son is our only hope. So often we take this hope for granted but just image living one moment without the Son. You would be eternally lost. Our minds should be in continual awe and wonder for what the Son had done for us!
(KJV) John 8:59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
The hour not yet come. The Fathers plan is so perfect and detailed it supersedes any earthly plans or purposes. When we are following the Fathers perfect plan all heaven is backing our every move and no man or scheme can interfere or even touch us.
(KJV) John 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
Who sinned?? We live in a temporal world that is not yet perfect. However the Father desires to bring His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. This is the Works of God, working in every human being to bring the Father perfect will and kingdom to this earth.
The whole purpose of the narrative and Jesus ministry was to revealing a higher powerful kingdom invading earth and setting all things right as they should be and are in heaven.
(KJV) John 9:41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
Light reveals darkness. When the Spirit speaks to you and reveals any area of sin in your life are you quick to deal with it?? If the Spirit has exposed it then you must deal with it immediately otherwise your heart will become hardened and you will not be able to go on with Gods plan until you deal with this issue.
(KJV) John 10:3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
As children of God we are able to recognize Our Father voice just as easily as instantly recognizing our earthly parents voices. The more time you spend with the Father, the more you will be able to hear His voice.
(KJV) John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.
Virtual projection illusion!!
A life completely sold out to Christ is the only way to be truly alive and live abundantly. The world promises comforts, treasures and thrills but all of these appear tp bring meaning until you attain your earthly dreams and realize they are but mere shadows and illusions of joy and purpose with no substance behind them. Like cardboard cut outs or virtual images they are so shallow and only transparent illusions of purpose and meaning with Zero substance. Though they appear to bring joy they were just virtual images and were never real at all.
(KJV) John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, [and] one shepherd.
As child of God the Father leads us guides is by daily speaking to us through His word.
(KJV) John 10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
When you lay down your life and completely lose it, you are transformed into a new race of being just like Christ and for the fist time discover what it means to truly be human and feel alive. In our fallen state human beings are nothing more than zombies walking around indulging in the lusts of the flesh and completely un-human and unaware of God.
(KJV) John 10:18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
Until you completely surrender and lay down your life you have no power. When you completely lay down your life, you become an unstoppable force. The Father can completely fill you with His power and authority and Every attempt of the enemy only further motivates you to live all out for Christ.
(KJV) John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
(KJV) John 10:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.
Completely safe in the arms of Christ!!
(KJV) John 10:30 I and [my] Father are one.
Becoming one with the Father is the journey of this life. Our journey is not merely to some Heavenly promiseland but God Himself is our destination. God all in all. The two becoming one from the very beginning was a prophecy of Christ and His Bride. One might think in this glorious union we lose our own identity however this could not be further from the truth. It is here in holy matrimony (in the truest and purest sense of the word) that we discover our true identity and become our true selves for the first time in life. Everything you are up to this point is Only a shadow and an infinitely small dust particle of who you truly are.
(KJV) John 11:4 When Jesus heard [that], he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
(KJV) John 11:15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
(KJV) John 11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
Like Martha when Jesus promises us resurrection life we believe that we will rise again on the last day but what about today. He has said that we are seated with Him in heavenly places and our citizenship and life are already in this eternal realm!!
The disciples heard Jesus’ promise: “… that where I am, there ye may be also….” But like so many of us today, they could only see it as a future blessing. “He will come someday, rapture me, and take me home to His house,” they were thinking. To them, it was all future, But Christ meant it to be an immediate blessing. He longed for them to understand that by faith their eyes could be opened to see the kingdom of God within them. He wanted them to ascend with Him immediately!’
(KJV) John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
(KJV) John 11:27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
Like Martha we believe Jesus is the Son of God but are oh so slow to comprehend that He has raised us to resurrection life now even in this mortal body.
(KJV) John 11:35 Jesus wept. Why was Jesus weeping He knew Lazarus would very soon rise from the grave?? He was weeping at the blindness of the believers around Him you have been with me this long and you still have no idea of the power or magnitude of the kingdom of heaven. Today Jesus is still weeping you have known me this long and hundreds of decades have last since my coming and still you have no idea who I really am and the power and glory of my kingdom!!
Like the disciples our minds are so earthly focused and fail to comprehend the glory of this heavenly kingdom!
(KJV) John 11:42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said [it], that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
Do you know and are you fully aware the Father hears your every prayer. Your faith and entire life will be transformed the moment you realize that Your Father cares for you so deeply and personally hears every word you speak!!
(KJV) John 12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed [is] the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
All hail the King of glory. The greatest king in the history of the world is here!!
(KJV) John 12:16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and [that] they had done these things unto him.
We are so often unable to comprehend the Fathers plan and Spirits workings in our lives. This is why it is so important to be lead of the Holy Spirit.
(KJV) John 12:21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we want to see Jesus.
(KJV) John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
To see Jesus is dying and He personally comes into your heart and raises up and continues His life and ministry through you.
It’s no coincidence the next verse is
(KJV) John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
(KJV) John 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, [saying], I have both glorified [it], and will glorify [it] again.
Imagine the power and glory of a life completely surrendered and sole purpose of life to do the will of the Father. That is what we have been called to as children o God and it is our only logical response for all that Christ has done for us!
(KJV) John 13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
Will you surrender every area of your life and allow Jesus to completely wash away your past and Everything you have ever been. Tragically So many of us hold onto the past and spend years struggling with it when Jesus has been waiting all this time to wash you completely clean of your past life.
(KJV) John 13:14 If I then, [your] Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
Our call is two fold. First we are called to humble ourselves and become a servant of all. Second and most importantly we have been called to be the spiritual hose or facet thru which God will cleanse and completely wash away the struggles and bondages of others. We have been called as prisonbreakers to set the captives free. As the Holy Spirit first moves in us completely controls our lives, He then can move through us to pour out the Spirit on others.
(KJV) John 13:36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.
There Is Only One Way To Get To Where Christ Is– You Have To Die First!
You must die to sin and the world. This is illustrated when Peter asked the Lord, “Where are you going?” and Jesus answered, “Where I am going, you cannot follow me now: but you shall follow me afterwards…” (John 13:36). Peter argued, “Why can’t I go with you now? I’m ready to die for your sake!” (verse 37).
Jesus made His point! “The only way to follow Me is to die! If you want to be seated with Me in the place I have prepared for you, you must die.” But Peter was not yet ready for Ascension Life. He was still too earthbound, too wrapped up in himself and his own security. He would finally come to the end of himself. He would return to the Father’s house, be kissed, forgiven, and taken into the feast of the fatted calf. Then he would minister the rest of his life as a man come from God.
(KJV) John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.
(KJV) John 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
This is one of the most profound revelations Christ ever shared with His disciples. He was trying to show them a new way of living, in a new dimension they did not know existed. Here in this passage He introduced the reality of Ascension Life. In essence, Jesus told them, “I am leaving you to prepare a place for you in another realm. I am going to bring you into that realm — My ascended, resurrected realm. You are going to be united with Me in the power of ascended life.”
Did it register with the Lord’s disciples? Not any more than it has registered in our spiritual minds. Look at the incredible blindness of these men who had spent three years hearing about abundant, eternal life. Our Lord had tried to make them understand there was to be no break, no breach in their intimate relationship with Him. “If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be” (John 12:26).
But wasn’t He going to heaven, to His Father, to be seated in the heavenlies? Yes! And He said. “Follow Me there! You can be with Me where I an going.”
God help us to see what the disciples did not! Christ opened the way for us into life in a supernatural realm. He ascended to heaven — to the right hand of the Father — to prepare us a place there with Him. He yearns to seat every believer with Him in His heavenly place, and bring them into the full riches of His glory.
The Lord meant it when He said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” He meant He would bring us to Himself — united with Him in glory — right now, while on earth. When He said, “Take up your cross daily and follow me,” where did He intend you follow Him to? He is no longer here on earth. He is a flesh-and-bone Man seated in heaven. If you follow Him, you must go to where He is. He is outside of all that is of this earth. He is outside of all that is fleshly. He is outside of all that is visible. He abides in the realm of spirit. And only the Holy Spirit can take us to where He is.
The disciples heard Jesus’ promise: “… that where I am, there ye may be also….” But like so many of us today, they could only see it as a future blessing. “He will come someday, rapture me, and take me home to His house,” they were thinking. To them, it was all future, But Christ meant it to be an immediate blessing. He longed for them to understand that by faith their eyes could be opened to see the kingdom of God within them. He wanted them to ascend with Him immediately!’
(KJV) John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
This is only possible when my life and will is completely surrendered to the Fathers plan and I have been awakened to walk in resurrection life with Christ.
(KJV) John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
The Comforter is your advisor, accountability partner, personal guide and closest friend. Finding and following Gods plan for your life is completely dependent on the depth of relationship you have developed with the Promised One.
(KJV) John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
Through the Spirit the Lord and King of all creation actually lives and dwells in your heart!! How absolutely crazy is that??
(KJV) John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
The more you follow the Fathers ways the more He will reveal Himself to you!! The degree your life is surrendered and following the Fathers plan is the degree to which the Father can reveal Himself to you.
(KJV) John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Just as living without the Holy Spirit is impossible accurately understanding Gods Word is simply not possible apart from the Holy Spirit.
You may be able to mentally understand every word on the page but the Father has purposely encoded and hidden the truth of His word so only those who truly seek Him with all of their hearts will understand. The Holy Spirit is the code breaker and illuminator who reveals the Fathers Word to us.
(KJV) John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. (KJV) John 15:5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Apart from a continual abiding relationship with Christ it is impossible to live a fruitful and eternally significant life!! Apart from Christ we can do nothing fruitful or eternally significant. Sure we have great ideas, plans and dreams but apart from Christ they are useless and only a distraction. Our most desperate need is get alone With God and tarry with Christ until we learn and become His heart for creation. it is only out of this abiding relationship that you will be able to do anything significant with your life.
(KJV) John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Will Christ actually do Anything we ask? When we are abiding in Christ then We will share His heart and Everything we ask will only be in line and according to the Fathers perfect will. As you abide in Christ everything you pray and desire is living out the Fathers greatest desire that His kingdom come and will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
(KJV) John 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
Abiding in Christ is how the Father is most glorified and the only way to live eternally significant lives with fruit that lasts. In own abilities and actions we can appear to bear fruits of effective ministry but only Ministry done abiding in Christ and empowered by the Spirit will last.
(KJV) John 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
How can you daily live every waking Moment growing in awareness of your heavenly Fathers love. He loves you do much He has given everything for you. Such a love should capture our hearts in wonder and awe and take our breath away.
We need to live every moment in awe of the Father. Nothing else matters. The Father must become our supreme joy in life.
(KJV) John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
To come to the place where we give our lives to complete the Fathers eternal will on this earth.
(KJV) John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
If your best friend asks you to do something you do it right away. If an acquaintance asks you to do something perhaps it is less important. The Father longs for us to get beyond mere obedience and come to the place where our sole motivation for doing His will is because He is precious than any earthly thing.
(KJV) John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
As demonstrated throughout scripture in Abraham Daniel and many others The Father reveals His heart and plans to His closest friends who revere and cherish Him ( psalms 25:14). True friendship is mutual and involves continual communication. True friends desire to be with each other more than anything else in this life. Exodus 30:1 A friend is as a mans own soul. As Abraham journeyed with God they become one, to where at the end of His life you didn’t know which actions were Abrahams and which were Gods. This Truly is not being found of my own righteousness but only the righteousness of Christ. Jeremiah 30 the Lord our righteousness.
They were of one mind and shared the same heartbeat.
This is sole purpose of this earthly journey, becoming one with the Father.
(KJV) John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
Together our lives partnered with the Holy Spirit bear witness of Jesus Christ on this earth.
(KJV) John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
(KJV) John 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
The Spirit is poured out both to awaken all who will come and complete the righteous judgment of God against all the forces of darkness. Holy Spirit rising awakens the army and judges all darkness.
(KJV) John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
(KJV) John 16:14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.
(KJV) John 16:16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
Do you realize At the right hand of the Father we can know Jesus On a far deeper level than the disciples ever did?? The apostle Paul knew Jesus after the spirit and in a far deeper way than Peter who only lines Him in the natural.
(KJV) John 16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
Much like this hour with all creation we grown and travail longing for the Father to fully birth His kingdom completely overtaking this earth.
(KJV) John 16:26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
Daily remind yourself that Jesus Himself your best friend and the great intercessor is continually unceasingly praying for you and asking all of heaven to continually intervene in your life.
Grasping this verse is truly the key to understanding and why you can always be in perfect peace and complete joy. Your best friend is always praying and interceding to empower you to overcome all things just as Jesus has.
(KJV) John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
