Please Do Not Feel Bad If You Can Not Complete This Study.

 Sometimes The Truth Hurt Way To Much.

Look at How The Church Leaders Treated Jesus.

 

..What Does It mean "To Be Blessed" as taught in the New Testament in The Bible.

  • In the United States Of America,  the main force of public church leaders, the ones you see on TV, the ones that travel the nation holding seminars,  the ones that build these monster buildings, have so miss lead their followers, that have created the Laodicea Church of Revelations chapter 3:14-22
  •  These church leaders have built massive followers by leading people to come to the Lord for the purpose of Material gain. These leaders have influenced others to follow them by  living a live style of much Material gain. A common example  would be a pastor that leaves his beautiful expensive home in his new very expensive auto,  arrives at a large beautiful church building, preaches another be blessed message to a congregation that has at least one row of single moms with 2 or more kids, that work two or more jobs and still live a very undesirables life style. Oh, they try to pay what he calls tithes so that god (Not God) will let them live like him. (with much of this world's stuff referred to  as mammon in the Bible,  which is covered below), 
  • If you do not think that anyone suffering and doing without is not the church as a whole responsibility, please go read the Book Of Acts.  Do not worry any conviction that you might feel,  you can find much teaching on how much of that book in the Bible does no apply to us today.
  • The end results,  the destruction of a Christian country that is now as evil as any country or people taught about in the Old Testament.   God has always brought to total destruction those nations  because of their turning away from Him and His standards of Holiness,   to serve self and Material gain.
  • The Bible categorizes this behavior as, the Lust Of the Eyes,  the Lust of The Flesh,  the Pride Of Life,  the Force Of Evil, and Pure Wickedness.

To the Church in Laodicea

Revelations 3

14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation.

15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!

16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’

But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.

 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear,

so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.

20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,

I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne,

just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.

22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”


Hebrew Word For Warning

Ezek 3:18 "When I say to the wicked, 'You shall surely die,' and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.
Ezek 3:19 "Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.
Ezek 3:20 "Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die; because you did not give him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.
Ezek 3:21 "Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; also you will have delivered your soul."

 

                                 Ezek 33:4 'then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head.
Ezek 33:5 'He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life.


The Greek Word For Warning

(Col 1:25 NKJV) of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God,

(Col 1:26 NKJV) the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.

(Col 1:27 NKJV) To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

(Col 1:28 NKJV) Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

           Finding The Real Truth

Lets Pull Back The Pages Of The Word And See If There Is A Real Truth:

 

Welcome to Be A Christian Warrior. I love studying and teaching the Bible. I think what is offered on this web site could make an eternal difference in your future. But on the other hand, I do not want to waste your time, so I offer this heads up.

 I find most of what Jesus actually taught while He was on the earth, many Christians are not very interested in even discussing. Why, to really live up to what Jesus taught while He walked the earth, requires the unspeakable in our culture. To walk in the light of The Words that Jesus spoke,

·        You must totally,

·        Completely

·        Utterly

·        Deny and Die to yourself 

·        Serve God and others

·        With all that you have.  

 Most Bible teachers, that I have been able to listen to, teach a life style doctrine based on the Old Testament.  They do not teach what Jesus taught in the New Testament.

They teach a bless me some more for me, myself and my nation, Oh Lord doctrine, which is very much a part of what God offered His people in the Old Testament if they would obey the law.

Before you totally blow a fuse over that statement, let me qualify what I mean by it, then you can blow your fuse if you want. 

We now live in the dispensation of Grace. 

Jesus came to  initiate this new dispensation. 

The new dispensation changed the whole reason

for the existence of God's people on this earth.

The dispensations before Jesus came to earth were designed to sustain.

The new dispensation of Grace is designed to conquer by setting free.

During the Dispensation of Grace,

God Greatly Desires To Bless His Children On This Earth.

 

Let me say that again so it is very laud and clear.

 

During the Dispensation of Grace,

God Greatly Desires To Bless His Children On This Earth.

 but not for,  self-seeking,  self-centered,  selfish gain.

We are not here on earth to build our own little kingdoms.

We are here to build The Kingdom Of God.

Jesus Laid Out A Whole New Set Of Ground Rules

for His Body The Church To Live By.

Can you give seven weeks of your life to only the word:

Buy the four gospels on CD or tape and you listen to Jesus For Seven Weeks, Him And Nothing Else During Your Free Time:

Start Off This Time With Jesus By Taking A Vacation With Him If You Have Vacation Time Available.

So while you are here on my web, if you stay, you read the Words of Jesus and you decide what Jesus taught, as to what we are here for and how we are to live on this earth.

You go buy the four gospels on CD or tape and you listen to what Jesus taught, verse after verse and chapter after chapter, over and over again.

 

Quit studying the Bible and just listen to the teacher, the only true teacher, Jesus.  Throw away everything for a while and just listen to the four gospels over and over again. Dozens if not hundreds of times.  Then you can add the test of the new testament.

Listen to the new testament  now, the whole new testament including the four gospels,  again dozens of time and even hundreds if you have that  kind of self control. 

THEN YOU WILL KNOW THE TRUTH, AS TO WHAT JESUS TAUGHT AND

HAD IT TAUGHT BY THOSE THAT WERE HIS FIRST FOLLOWERS. 

Who am I to tell you this,  just forget me and go straight to THE ONE IN CHARGE! JESUS IS THE ONE IN CHARGE!

           There Is A Rest

dynamic images

There remains therefore a rest:

(Heb 4:9 - 11 NKJV) There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
(10) For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. (11) Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.

If you want to enter into God's rest as spoken of above, you get in the four gospels, Proverbs chapter 8 and the book of Act.  You stay there, go no where else. You listen as many hours a day as you can until you  understand the phenomenal truth concerning entering the rest offered by God.  You will know when it is time to leave.

The new testament doctrine of Jesus is not hard to understand, it teaches us to

·        Completely die to self

·        Fill your heart with the Word of God which is Jesus Christ God's Son

·        Fill yourself with faith and trust in God which comes as you fill yourself with Jesus.

 

Take the time to fill yourself with the four Gospels then:

·        Watch the things of this world grow strangely dim as the Word and Love of God consumes you.

·         Watch your heart be filled with God's love for a dying world that will die unless someone tells the TRUTH.

·        Watch this love for what God loves  cause you to aim for a Jesus filled life, focusing  on serving God and others and not self and the things of this world.

not hard to understand:

The new testament doctrine is not hard to understand, it is just hard to use to build the large followings and large ministries that the bless me some more for me and myself ministries can build with what they teach.

If you start teaching the Words of Jesus that are outlined below,  your following will diminish rapidly.

Jesus stated many times that it would be the norm for people to not accept what He taught.

Matthew 22:11 -14 :

New King James Version (NKJV)

11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment. 12 So he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and[a] cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

14 “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

The question that I would be asking myself is what would it take to not be chosen.  Or maybe better yet, what would it take to be chosen?


            Many Are Called And Only A few Are Chosen

dynamic images

It IS time to know the truth:

If many are called and only a few are chosen,  we need to be finding out what it takes to get chosen,  and start helping as many as we can get chosen.

 AS you continue, look at the Word and find the answers as to what Jesus tells us we will be doing to be chosen, what it takes to be chosen.

Please do not go yelling legalism here or think I am teaching some other doctrine of salvation other than;

(Rom 10:8 - 10 NKJV) But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach): (9) that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (10) For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

I am not talking about a do's and don'ts life.  I am talking about what Jesus said the born again believer would be doing and how he would be acting,  how he would be living if that believer was being led by the Spirit of God.

(Mat 7:17 - 23NKJV) "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. (18) "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. (19) "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  (20) "Therefore by their fruits you will know them.  (21) "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. (22) "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?'  (23) "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'

These groups of verses are warnings from God, but they are much more than a warning,  they are a cry of love to open the eye of anyone who reads these verses. If anyone can hear this cry, that person has found the narrow gate referred to by Jesus.

(Mat 7:13 - 14NKJV) "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. (14) "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

·        "For many are called, but few are chosen."

·         'I never knew you; depart from Me,

·         there are few who find it

(Do you think that Jesus made-up all these warning just to here himself talk.)

(Gal 6:7 NKJV) Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

(Gal 6:8 NKJV) For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

(Gal 6:9 NKJV) And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

(WE, the children of God will reap when we enter into the presents of God. On earth, it is no longer I who live but Christ that lives in me.  So what I reap on earth is for the Body Of Christ, not personal self.)

(Gal 6:10 NKJV) Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.



 

all choose every day, someone is look over our shoulder, But many can't Here:

  • Sowing to the flesh   VS   Sowing to the Spirit
  • Not being chosen   VS   Being chosen
  • I never knew you   VS   Being known by The Father
  • Enter the wide Gate   VS   Entering the narrow gate.
  • Eternity In Hell   VS   Eternity In Heaven

Where Do You Stand?:


        Called To Be Christian Warriors!

dynamic images

find your real place in the army of god!:

 It is my heart desire that this Tmail can help you understand the simple truth about what the fruit of your life will be if you are being led by The Spirit of God.

 

If this Tmail can do this for you, this will be one of the most spiritually uplifting Tmails I believe that you will ever read.

 

As Stated Above, There Is A Problem!

That problem is called, "the flesh"

 

 (Are you Laodicean,  covered below)

Most Laodiceans will never make it to the end of this page because of the truths pointed out in the next few verses of the Word.

The Laodiceans are a people living the life of many U.S. Christians some 2000 years ago.

 satan has nothing new, same old tricks, same old lies.

Laodiceans choose to be part of the many not chosen,  just as the young man, we are about to study, did in the following verses. 

It is satan's self appointed job to keep you from becoming what is outlined below.

 

What you are about to read and learn from The Word Of God will  be one of the most damaging Tmails that your flesh will ever encounter.   The rage and the fit that your flesh and anyone else’s flesh will pitch over the following truth will cause many to turn and walk away as the man did in the following scriptures.  Before we read these scriptures there are several things that need to be pointed out.

·        The first thing that needs to be pointed out is the prophecy concerning the resistance of man's flesh  to God's Word and Will.  Verses 22 is a very Prophetic statement,  so must be viewed  with great consideration.

The lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, the pride of life,  the force of greed  and wickedness will be apart of each of us till we leave this earth, which will  be covered more extensively below.

·        The next point we must take very serious is satan's ability to use this world and the things of this world to deceive mankind, (6) for he had great possessions.”.

 Look at what satan used to try to tempt Jesus with, when Jesus started His ministry.

 

This is satan's big moment,  and this is the final hand of play on the mountain of Jesus' temptation as He starts His ministry. 

 

This is satan's big chance to spoil God's plan of Salvation for His creation, but the first  hands satan played has fallen short.

 

he said to himself, I better pull out my trump card, it has always worked for me before. Nobody can resist stuff, stuff and more stuff and the earthly power that comes with the much stuff,  not even Jesus.

 

satan bet all, thinking this is what it will take to get Jesus.

 

(Luke 4:5 -8 NKJV) Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. (6) And the devil said to Him, "All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. (7) "Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours."  (8) And Jesus answered and said to him, "Get behind Me, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.'"

You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.'   One of the biggest problem that we face on this earth as individual  Christians is where did we get our definition of what it means to worship God and who taught us how to serve Him only.

satan really has no new tricks. Yet, even with all God's warnings,

Man falls for the same lies century after century, decade after decade, years after year, day after day, hour after hour, minute after minute, second after second.

 

·        The final thing that needs to be pointed out and what I consider the most important thing to understand about the following verses is,

in this teaching Jesus is outlining the seven main points of the foundation of the New Testament's doctrine and its effect on man. He came to earth to initiate the New Testament's doctrine and to teach it's truths. In His teaching He also offers many warnings to men concerning man's acceptance of this new doctrine.  

(The added numbers 1-7 in the two verse below, outline these seven points)

To be chosen you must find the Heart of God.  You must hear the Cry from the heart of God. You must also heed God's warnings.

The following scriptures will point you towards God's Heart and Cry.

 

This is a true account of a man standing and talking with God. How easy it is to miss God when we do not take very serious every Word He speaks to us.

 

Mark 10:21-22 Then (7)Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, "One thing you lack: (A)Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and (4)you will have treasure in heaven; and (3)come, take up the cross, (2)and follow Me."  (22)  “(5)But he was sad at this word, and went away sorrowful, (6)for he had great possessions.”

 

The whole scope of the New Testament doctrine is captured in this one teaching. So to completely understand this teaching this verse must be completely analyzed.  



dynamic images

Analyzing the truth,  (A)  (B)  (C)  (d)  (E)  (F):

(A)   We the body of Christ are here to show the love of God to a dying world. Giving of what we have to meeting the needs of others is a part of the whole scope of giving all, spirit, soul, mind and strength. (1)(Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor) is a statement in context with the New Testament doctrine  that goes into the the core root of God's purpose for the body of Christ on the earth. 

 

(Luke 16:13-15 NKJV) "No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."  (14)Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him.  (15) And He said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

God lays it out so clear for us in the Word through Jesus when he was in this world. Jesus' focus, His life style, all had a reason and was all to make a statement for us.  How clear of a statement can God make concerning what man creates and the attitude He wants us to have about man's ingenious ability to create.   God does want us to use all of what man creates in anyway possible to save another soul from being destroyed in the pit of hell.  But satan's great ability  to get us to allow our self to be controlled by the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, the pride of life, the force of greed and wickedness, is exceptional. When any of those forces controls us God simply refers to it as walking in the flesh. It is so easy to allow our mind's to be blinded and not get it when reading God's Word.  Walking in the flesh or the lust for stuff, what is the big deal? The big deal is God the creator used the word abomination to explain His feeling about man’s stuff lust.

The  things of this world of this world that men create are an abomination to God. Is there a stronger word that we know that God could have used.

Abomination:

·  a person who is loathsome or disgusting

·  abhorrence: hate coupled with disgust

·  an action that is vicious or vile; an action that arouses disgust or abhorrence; "his treatment of the children is an abomination"

The teaching of Mark 10: 21- 22 is the core teaching of the New Testament doctrine. (Please know that this doctrine could never be taught by the church of the Laodiceans or it's pastors. This will covered in depths in other teaching.)

It is very important to take the time here to point out that four  times in the four gospels Jesus repeated this direct commands we find in Mark 10: 21-22.  (God repeats nothing in the Word by accident). 

 

If you then take the actions of Zacchaeus (click Here)  after Jesus entered and taught at his house,  add to this what the church did in Acts chapter 2 & 4, (covered below) and you have seven examples of this teaching, (1)(Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor.   and the results that it caused.

 

If then, after you read 2 Timothy chapter 3: 1-7, (also covered below) and you will put your hand to the ear of your spiritual heart,  you just might hear the Spirit of the the Living God as He says;

 

  (Rev 3:21- 22 NKJV) "To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. (22) "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."' "
 

(B)   As we give to others and their needs, opportunities to build the Kingdom of God will arise. (2), and follow Me.) When Jesus called disciples, He told them the reason He was calling them to follow Him. This is pointed out in the two following verses,   (Mat 4:19 NKJV) Then He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." (Mat 18:11 NKJV) "For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. 

 

If you are a confessing Christian you have been invited By God Almighty Him Self to join his army and fight for the souls of the lost that walk the earth. 

 

Although being recruited into the army of God is a choice, God has much to say about those that never join and those that do join, yet get distracted from there duties as a soldier in His army. 

Please hear the cry of the heart of God for lost and dying soul.

What is the Pass Word at the check points on the fields of battle in God's Army?  

 

Stay Focused!!!

 

(C)  This third point is what has not been taught in many divisions of the Body of Christ that are on the earth today.  (3) Come, take up the cross, which is explained in the following scriptures. Col 3:3 for you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.  (Gal 2:20 NKJV)  "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

 

We live in a body that is consumed with the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, the pride of life,  the force of greed and wickedness. Our bodies will always be consumed with these passions, until it is transformed into the likeness of Jesus

 

You must roll out of bed every morning on to the cross of self crucifixion.  The cross is for a live body,  There is no need to put a dead body on a cross.  As long as you live on this earth before the rapture, the fleshly body will have to be crucified every day if you desire to follow Jesus. 

You do not have to take my word for it, what is my word. 

You should only take Jesus' Word as to how you are to live every moment of life.

If you will listen to the Words of Jesus, see and hear the heart and cry of God. You will learn to allow the Spirit of God to rule and direct your spirit.  You will be able to walk in the spirit and not the flesh;

 

(Heb 4:12 NKJV) For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

 

To know The Living Word of God and Its Power is to know The Spirit of God that lives in you never once got excited about any home you ever bought, any auto you have ever driven or any Material thing that you have possessed. 

What is more profound than all that is the Spirit of God has never gotten excited about any building we the body of Christ have gathered to gather to build.

(Isa 66:1 & 2 NKJV) Thus says the LORD: "Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?
(2) For all those things My hand has made, And all those things exist," Says the LORD. "But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word.
 

Those desires and excitements are about things of this world. That which gets excited about the things of this world is your flesh, not your spirit man, if your spirit has been born again and filled with the Word of the living God. 

 

If building the buildings that we call churches would have saved a country from sin, we would be the most saved country that has ever existed.  We are here to build the body of Christ, not another building.

 

If the Body of Christ in the U.S.A. would have used the money we have used to build buildings, to pay foot soldiers' salaries to take and hold the land we occupy, for the Lord,  The story of this country we live in would be quite different today.  We build a lot of very expensive training centers,  which we use to do very little train and even less sending out into the world.

 

(Mat 6:24 NKJV) "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.  

 

To serve in the army of God you must remember the Pass Word.

 

What is the  Pass Word?

 

What excites the heavenly host;

(Luke 15:7 NKJV) "I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

 

If we were using the buildings we have 24/7 training soldier to fight. This country would be changed into a country severing God in a Matter of months.

 

How is this possible.  (1 John 4:4 NKJV) You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

 

( D)  As Christians we are here to serve God and others.  God wants us to Col 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.  We do this by giving to others which Jesus said is the way that He comes to know us as Children of God.  Also as we lead others to the saving knowledge of Jesus, we are building the kingdom of God. This  act makes deposits into a heavenly bank account, which is a rewards program established by God for us the Body of Christ. (4)( you will have treasure in heaven).  Our blessings for our self come when we enter eternity. The blessings we receive now on this earth are mainly for Building the Kingdom and helping others with struggles and needs on this earth.

 

(E) & (F)  (5)But he was sad at this word & (6)for he had great possessions.. This simple statement is one of the greatest prophetic warning  that can be found in the New Testament for end time believers. 

 

This prophecy warns us of the resistance of man's flesh  to God's Word and Will and  to satan's ability to deceive man with the world and the things of this world. 

The Word Of God is all that is real for all eternity.  satan always comes immediately to steal what is real, the Word that is sown in our hearts.  I am doing nothing here but quoting scriptures, and telling you nothing but that they mean exactly what they say.  You can take God at face value, He is not trying to confuse you or deceive you.  satan is the deceiver not God.

 

 satan is alive and well and he is at work in this earth at this very second.  I bet you satan is after the control of your soul, AT THIS VERY MOMENT, I bet everything in you is screaming, 

 

I Do Not Have Time For This.

 

PLEASE BE FORE WARNED, this prophecy (5)  But he was sad at this word) also warns us, as to man's ability to be deceived,  because of the powerful hold this world, the things of this world and satan has on our flesh. 

 

Paul tells us in;

 

(Rom 7:18 NKJV) For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.

God repeats this five time in the Four Gospel:

When a person finally totally understands this truth,  he has come to the God given ability to understand what Jesus means by the statement which is pointed out above;

 

(3) Come, take up the cross

 God repeats this five time in the Four Gospels.

 

You must understand,  for God to repeat something five times in the Word is a phenomenal occurrence.

 

(Mat 10:38 NKJV) "And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.

 (Mat 16:24 NKJV) Then Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

(Mark 8:34 NKJV) When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, "Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.

(Mark 10:21 NKJV) Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, "One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me."

(Luke 9:23 NKJV) Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

A special note is needed here to point out,  the command to take up the cross always proceeds the request of Jesus for us to follow Him.

 

When we the Body of Christ are finally able to see the waste that we have been apart of by trying to make it look good for the eyes and feel good for the mind and body, we might be able to finally sell out to the real cause of Christ which is helping others and building the Kingdom.

 

How easy is it to deny our self and take up the cross and follow Jesus

(Luke 22:40 NKJV) When He came to the place, He said to them, "Pray that you may not enter into temptation."

(Luke 22:41 NKJV) And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed,

(Luke 22:42 NKJV) saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."

(Luke 22:43 NKJV) Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

(Luke 22:44 NKJV) And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Here you can see the struggle of denying ones self, and the struggle of sending the flesh to the cross.

 

Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him

If Jesus needed and angel to strengthen Him,  then how much more are we going to need the power of God to help us as we daily face the command to crucify our flesh. 

 

There are many promises in the Word to us concerning God's help. The only way to walk in the light of the following scripture is  to daily strive to grow into the dependency of these promises.

 

(Rev 3:21- 22 NKJV) "To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. (22) "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."' "

One of satan’s Greatest Deceptions:

 

One of satan’s greatest deception that he has been able to pull over on the church today is that the Body of Christ lives as though we are in a time of peace instead of a time of war.

As individuals we each work hard to build our individual lives, and our own little kingdoms on this earth. As individual groups we work together building organizations that resemble the worlds social clubs. We make the world's entertainment very much a part of what we do, to entice others to join.

 

It is time the church became the church of Jesus Christ. Start teaching what Jesus taught; three times He said if you want to follow me, you must deny yourself. Four times He said go sell all that you have and give to benefit others. Five time He taught us to deny our self by taking up the our cross.



A Boot Camp To Train Warriors To Fight For The Souls Of The Lost.

dynamic images

The church must learn:

The church must learn how to become a Boot Camp to train Warriors for war, not provide social seekers a place to come for pleasure. Find you a Navy Seal or a Marine Drill Sergeant and have him come and talk about self-denial and what it would mean to give all for a single cause. We have the greatest cause  that has ever existed on the this plant, delivering souls from the pit of hell. We are apart of the greatest army that has ever walked the earth. Yet we are the most under trained force that has ever been on this earth.

 

 This worlds warriors know more about self sacrifice and giving all for a cause than probably 99% of all Christian Warriors in the U.S.    This Worlds warriors  have been taught and many have experienced the self sacrifice of being in a real battle facing life or death.  Christian warriors have not been taught and most have not experienced the on the battle field, giving of there self totally for the cause of Christ.  We are to busy playing the game of worldly culture with the world.

 

The culture that we live in is now to the point of beyond Materialization.  The Church in the U.S. is very much caught up in this Materialization craze.  What is horrible is that many, Body Of Christ Leaders, Pastors and Christian Business Owners support and drive the craving of stuff for our own personal uses through out the Body of Christ.

 

People are given what their flesh wants to hear, so they will keep coming back. Christian leaders demonstrate a life style of much Material gain for ones on personal use. This stuff centered life styles falsely represents what God wants for His Children on this earth.  

 

These following scriptures are ones that I would encourage any pastor to read to the point of near memorization or memorize. These scriptures are God’s prophesy for the prosperity message taught by many churches today.  Please be willing to allow God to show you the truth found in these verses.

 

(2 Tim 3:1-7 NKJV)  But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: (2) For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  (3) unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, (4) traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, (5) having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! (6) For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, (7) always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.  

 

(Luke 17:26 - 36 NKJV) "And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: (27 ) "They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. (28) "Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; (29) "but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. (30 ) "Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.  (31) "In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back.  (32) "Remember Lot's wife. (33) "Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.  (34) "I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. (35) "Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left.  (36) "Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left."

(7)Jesus, looking at him, loved him.  God has one Goal for His Body The Church.  Tell the truth so men will have the opportunity to be set free from the world and the things of the world so they can be saved.

Can you here the Heart of God:

Can you here the Heart of God Crying, 

Tell My people the Truth.

 

Jesus said that many are called, but few are chosen. Your job as a Body Of Christ Leader, Pastor or Christian Business Owner, is to find out from the Word, from the mouth of Jesus, what it takes to be chosen, and get some chosen. 

Why does satan fight so hard to keep any part of your flesh alive. 

As a Christian, if all of you ever dies,

satan Has Another Jesus On His Hands.



 I Will Vomit You Out Of My Mouth

Laodicean Church:

 

The present day prosperity message leading Christians to desire a lot of Material stuff for ones own personal uses, is a lie from the pit of hell. Not teaching the Body of Christ the true new testament doctrine is what has created the present day Laodicean church.  The following scriptures describing the Laodicean Church are prophesying the fatal end of these Laodicean church members. 

 

(Rev 3:14-22 NKJV)  "And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, 'These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: (15)  "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. (16)  "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. (17)  "Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'; and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked; (18)  "I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. (19)  "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. (20)  "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (21)  "To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. (22) He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."'

 

Do not miss the warning found in these scriptures; it will cost you more than you ever wanted to pay.   (I will vomit you out of My mouth.) (Luke 16:13-15 NKJV)  "No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." (14) Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him. (15)  And He said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

 

The only way that man can understand the mind and heart of God is through the revelation given to us through Jesus Christ His only begotten Son. To know Jesus is to become lost in the four gospels.  We as Christians must listen to what He teaches, feel the feelings He feels and learn to desire the things that He desires, think from His Heart and Mind.

The Lie:

The great lie to the current day Body of Christ is that we are here to live a life of bliss desiring to have and use all the wonderful things that man has made to fill our lives with ease and comfort.

 

You only have to spend a few days in the four gospels to experience the truth concerning our existence on this earth.  The earth is not our home, it is not a place we should seek to be comfortable in. The earth is a war zone.  Casualties of this war enter the most horrible eternal existence that could ever be imagined.

 

With ever second that the Body of Christ has spent in R & R, thousands have entered the pit of hell, forever lost, forever gone. The four Gospels make it very clear that we are to die to self and give our lives to bear much fruit building The Kingdom of God.

 

Only those that bear fruit in Christ building the Kingdom will be counted worthy to enter The Kingdom of God. This war is filled with love, joy, peace and. excitement with gladness, but for the victories in the Spirit not for the gains in the flesh. As we march onward into battle experiencing the victories of building the kingdom, we must remember, this is a war and Jesus warned of casualties 

 

(Mat 24:9 NKJV)  "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. In Him we are more than enough to deal with anything the enemy brings against us (John 16:33 NKJV)  "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have over come the world." The victory is ours for the taking, but we must go to the battle to win these victories for the Lord. 


 


The Christian Soldier And The War

The Christian Soldier:

T

(1 Pet 5:8 NKJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. (2 Tim 2:3 NKJV) You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. (2 Tim 2:4 NKJV)  No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.

the war:

The Plan of Attack As taught By Those Who Walked With Jesus While He Was on Earth.

Eat Every Word, Don’t Drop a Single Crumb.

(Acts 2:44 – 47 NKJV)  Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, (45)  and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. (46)  So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, (47)  praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

(Acts 5:42 NKJV)  And daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.

(Acts 4:31- 35 NKJV)  And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. (32)  Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. (33) And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.  (34) Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, (35) and laid them at the apostles' feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.

·        they distributed to each as anyone had need (who's needs were they distributing to, the foot soldier on the field of battle.

 The Bible does not teach a charity program so every lazy bum can lay around and watch the box from the pit of hell all day.  2 Th 3:10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.)

The above is the fulfillment of the following:

(Eph 4:11 - 16NKJV) And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
(12) for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,

(13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 

(14) that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,

(15) but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head; Christ;  (16) from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

 

(Rom 12:1 NKJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
(Rom 12:2 NKJV) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
(Rom 12:3 NKJV) For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.
(Rom 12:4 NKJV) For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,
(Rom 12:5 NKJV) so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
(Rom 12:6 NKJV) Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;
(Rom 12:7 NKJV) or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching;
(Rom 12:8 NKJV) he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
(Rom 12:9 NKJV) Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
(Rom 12:10 NKJV) Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;
(Rom 12:11 NKJV) not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
(Rom 12:12 NKJV) rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer;
(Rom 12:13 NKJV) distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
(Rom 12:14 NKJV) Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
(Rom 12:15 NKJV) Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
(Rom 12:16 NKJV) Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.
(Rom 12:17 NKJV) Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.
(Rom 12:18 NKJV) If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
(Rom 12:19 NKJV) Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.
(Rom 12:20 NKJV) Therefore "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head."
(Rom 12:21 NKJV) Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
 



Can you see the Big Picture

It is not about stuff and self.  It is about God and Others:

Body of Christ Leader

·      First question, How do you lead: (Rom 12:8 NKJV)  he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

·      Second question; What must you be aware of about the path that you are leading others down: (Mat 7:13-14NKJV)  "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. (14)  "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. (there are few who find it???????)

·      Third question; Where do you lead: (Luke 6:39-40 NKJV) And He spoke a parable to them: "Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch? (40)  "A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher. You lead to the teacher, Jesus.

·      Forth question; What does Jesus ask of those following: Him (Luke 9:23-24NKJV) Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. (24)  "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.

 Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way, which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Those that do find it will be lead to get in step behind Jesus.  Jesus makes it very clear multiple times what one must do to follow Him. To follow Jesus means to learn how to deny your self daily, through crucifying the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, the pride of life and the force of greed. The Body of Christ has a mission on this earth and can only be accomplished as they are lead to be God centered and others centered instead of self centered and things centered.

A Leader Must Lead Others To Follow Jesus,   Based on What Jesus Teaches In The Four Gospels.

As a pastor God wants you to prepare and direct into battle:

Pastors

As a pastor God wants you to prepare and direct into battle, those that He has given you. Teach your warriors to die to self and live to meet the needs of others and build the Kingdom Of God. Send these Christian Warriors forth to the building of The Kingdom God. God Desires that each soldier work hard so they can have much Heavenly Treasure waiting for their arrival in heaven.

The Victory Is Ours As We Go To The Battle.

Your warriors are to take and hold the ground that surrounds your church building. Draw several circles around your church building smaller to larger. (Plan Of Attack) Plan a degree of attack within each circle. As your church makes adjustments in their personal life styles, you should be able to have 20 to 30 percent of your members as paid full time warriors. The rest of your warriors should serve a minimum of three days a month and two weeks a year similar to the National Guard. Divide the weekend warriors in to four groups so there are always enough warriors on duty to take and hold the ground God has given you to conquer.

Within the first circle there should not be a single individual that is unknown to your warriors. With every need that is found, every attempt should continually be made to solve that need, because we have a Commander and Chief big enough to handle any problem.

If your assault force is big enough, you can have a second and even a third zone away from the church that would be your home mission and then your foreign mission.  The same active involvement would be necessary to take and secure these areas for the Lord.

 If you have ever wondered where and when the power of God would show up in a very miraculous way.  Make this kind of commitment to the building of the Kingdom of God and God will show up in a way that will astonish even the most vivid miracle-believing believer.

Body Of Christ Leaders & Pastor's Challenge:

As a leader in the body of Christ, you must recognize all that has been said about the last days being upon us will come as a thief in the night to many believing The Lie.  This lie is explained so clearly in the Word.

satan's deception has robbed many and will continue to rob many of much Heavenly Treasure Unless the trumpet is heard.

In the Very Near Future.  

The Lie will cost many, 

much more than anyone was willing to pay.  

But it will be to late.  

Please Stand On The Wall And 

Sound The Trumpet! 

 

The Lie!

Many Christians in the U.S. have been taught and believe that being blessed by God means gaining a lot of Material stuff for ones own personal use.

 

This is what they have been taught and 

this is what they have seen demonstrated to them. 

A Christian that has achieved any standard of worldly prosperity,  stands at the door of very serious judgment as stated in the following scriptures; 

(Rev 3:14 KJV) And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

(Rev 3:15 KJV) I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

(Rev 3:16 KJV) So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

(Rev 3:17 KJV) Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

(Rev 3:18 KJV) I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

(Rev 3:20 KJV) Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

(Rev 3:21 KJV) To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

(Rev 3:22 KJV) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

 Any level of Prosperity achieved can be of benefit to a Christian
  

only 

if that individual is able to receive and walk in the light of the following scripture;

(Gal 2:20 KJV) I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Material stuff is only a blessing when used to gain Heavenly Treasure. We gain Heavenly Treasure through personally spreading the Gospel and personally in the Name Of Jesus meet the needs of others. 

God does expect us to use part of what He gives us to provide for our personal needs and the need of our families.  But this providing will fall within the scope of what Jesus taught while He walked the earth. 

Before Reading The Following Scriptures, Just Try To Imagine What We,  The Body Of Christ In The U.S. Could Have Accomplished With The Wealth That God Has So Abundantly Given Us.  What If We Would Have Taken Jesus Literally In The Following Statements He Made? How Different Would This Country Be Today,  If Our Country Would Have Experienced The Real Presents Of Jesus In Us.

 This Presents Can only Be Brought To Life In Obeying The Following Commandments He Clearly Gave Us?   

(Mat 6:19 KJV) Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

(Mat 6:20 KJV) But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

(Mat 6:21 KJV) For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

(Mat 6:22 KJV) The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

(Mat 6:23 KJV) But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

(Mat 6:24 KJV) No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. 

Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (God or Money and Stuff)

(Mat 6:25 KJV) Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

(Mat 6:26 KJV) Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

(Mat 6:27 KJV) Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

(Mat 6:28 KJV) And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

(Mat 6:29 KJV) And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

(Mat 6:30 KJV) Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

(Mat 6:31 KJV) Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

(Mat 6:32 KJV) (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

(Mat 6:33 KJV) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 Why do you think Jesus said seek ye first the kingdom of God?   Once a true Christian understands what the kingdom of God is,  His focus will be on gaining heavenly treasure as taught in the Word, not misusing the blessings that God has given him.    BLESSINGS FROM GOD. are to enable a Christian to have opportunity to gain heavenly treasure. 

(Mat 6:34 KJV) Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

If one who studies the Bible really understands who and what Jesus is,  it is not hard to understand that Jesus was quite capable of saying exactly what He meant while on the earth.  He was quite clear in pointing out that there is now a big difference in His plan for His Body, the New Church,  as there was for the Jews in the Old Testament.   

Our flesh is much more interested in what it meant to be blessed in the Old Testament than what it means to be blessed in  the New Testament.  Simply look at what sets in your church parking lot on Sunday Morning.  Follow home anyone in your church that has experienced any amount of financial success,  it is very easy to recognize what is most important to them as to the use of their financial success.  Most have no clue as to what it means to give all.  Look at your members tithing history,  we the church struggle coming close to the old testament 10%.  Start preaching the new testament all, and you will experience what Jesus experienced in the following scriptures.

(John 6:53 KJV) Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

(John 6:54 KJV) Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

(John 6:55 KJV) For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

(John 6:56 KJV) He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

(John 6:57 KJV) As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

(John 6:58 KJV) This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

(John 6:66 KJV) From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
(How Interesting The Chapter and verse
  666)

         Jesus focus while on earth and now through His Body the Church is the same. 

Just as His battle with His flesh in the garden of Gethsemane resulted in Him submitting to the will of God,  our battle with our flesh must also result in us surrendering to His will as pointed out so clearly in what He taught while on this earth.

NO, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS IN THE HEART OF ANY CHRISTIAN.  

BUT YOU AND I BOTH CAN WATCH WHAT IS ON OUR TV'S.  WE CAN SEE THE CONDITION OF OUR SCHOOL SYSTEM.  WE KNOW HOW LONG THE ABORTION ISSUE HAS GONE ON.  WE CAN SEE THE NEW ACCEPTANCE OF THE HOMOSEXUAL MOVEMENT IN OUR COUNTRY.  AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON.

With the numbers of Christians that are in this country and the wealth that God has so freely given us,  if we would have listened and obeyed  what Christ taught, while He walked the earth,  

things would have turned out much different for our country.

Unfortunately, we have been using much of our time and effort to create the lifestyle the world seeks after to show  their success.  We have been seeking the things of this world, 

Along With This World. 

Simply put,  being blessed in  the Old Testament meant obeying the law which resulted in  receiving God's covering for sin, His protection and His blessing through Material gain. 

What it means to be blessed in  the New Testament is to die to self and the need for Material gain for our own personal use. 

To walk in the Spirit is to  allow Jesus to live through us. As He lives through us we will see the same results as we can clearly see when we study His life as He walked the earth, serving God and others. 

 

Jesus was not into stuff and stuff and more stuff,  He was into preaching and teaching and healing and delivering, and helping and giving and doing for others.  As He did these things He was continually teaching us to do the same. 

Why would our life style be different than that of Christ as He walked the earth if;

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me".

What it means to be blessed in the New Testament is, being given by God much access 

to all types of this world's stuff, 

and then be given  much opportunity to  use that stuff to gain much Heavenly Treasure.  

This is so easy to see in the Word, for anyone, if one is willing to see the truth. 

As a leader in the Body of Christ, have you missed opportunities to demonstrate the lifestyle of gaining Heavenly Treasure, and of encouraging others to do the same?

Your Still Alive and Kicking,  It Is Not To Late.

Plan Of Attack:

 

Pastors And Body Of Christ Leaders 

Plan Of Attack

 

Those that Have Been Put Under Your Care Need to  be taught that being blessed by God on earth does not mean,  gaining much Material stuff  for ones personal use. 

 

Those that Have Been Put Under Your Care Need Much Opportunity To Use There Time And Material Gain,   To Gain Heavenly Treasure.

 

The Liability That You Have To Provide Opportunity For Gaining Heavenly Treasure Is Extreme.

If You Do Not,  The Hay, Wood and Stubble Bond Fire That You Will Witness At Your Own Personal Judgment, is Not Going To Be To Your Approval!!!

 If You Are A Pastor,  God wants you to take and hold the ground that surrounds your church.

God wants you to activate the part  of his army  that you have been given to serve.

Take Back What satan Has Stolen.  (People not Stuff)

 

Here Is A Basic Plan Of Attack

Draw four circles around your church.

One 1/4 mile 

One 1/2 mile 

One 3/4 mile ]

One 1 Mile

Take this statement of Jesus 

(Luke 4:18 KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

(Luke 4:19 KJV) To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.



Activate your army (church members) which are to serve the work of the Lord with their time and Material gains.

Each circle can have a different activity level based on the size of you active members.

 

Divide the church in to four groups. 

At a bear minimum each church member should serve as the U.S. National Guard Army, one weekend a month. and a least one  weeks  a year minimum.

By having four Groups, one group serving a weekend,  and then the church as a whole, having at least four complete weeks a year of service, 

 your body of believers will have an on going out reach to the the areas that you are capable of reaching.

There can be so many variation to this plan, but this can be a bases to start. 

Final Note

I have had individuals suggest to me that people would take advantage of the churches giving. This individual suggested that we would have to be very careful with how and who received our giving.

Responsibility is very important,  but if most of us would be honest, for years,  God has very generously given us much that we have wasted away on Material stuff for our own personal uses  that has no eternal value. 

We have wasted much for the comfort of our flesh. 

It Is Now Time To Put The Flesh In It's Proper Place

(Luke 9:23 KJV) And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Taking up the cross daily means nailing our flesh daily to our own personal cross each morning as we roll out of bed.  If we daily crucify our flesh,  then the things this world tries so hard to make us believe we need, the things that the flesh demands, will not be important to us for self and will not control our lives.

(Luke 9:24 KJV) For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

(Luke 9:25 KJV) For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

(Luke 9:26 KJV) For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

(Luke 9:27 KJV) But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

I have spent time with the Lord thinking and planning strategies of attack, I would be very happy to brain storm strategies with you.

What I am about to tell you:

 What I am about to tell you The Word Teaches, you can find as many bless me Lord Bible teachers, as you want, telling you the opposite.

What I am asking you to do is get the four gospels on CD preferably NKJV, get alone for two weeks and learn how to think and feel what Jesus thinks and feels. You will then know the truth and the truth will set you free.

(Luke 12:48 NKJV) For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more. The much being referred to here is your responsibility to God and others.

(James 4:13 - 15 NKJV)  Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit"; (14) whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.  (15) Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that." Nothing on this earth is ours. It all belongs to God. Anything that we have or control, it is a loan from God.

God never gives anything to anyone so that they can use it to make themselves superior, better than, more than another individual. As an example of what Jesus expects from us as to our attitude towards others, Jesus, God in the flesh, gets on His knees and washed the feet of the disciples. As a business owner, to under estiMate the profound meaning this act represents will cost more than you ever wanted to pay.

A simple test for you to use to judge if the Spirit of the Living God is leading you, have you used God’s gift of being a business owner, to set yourself above, provide for yourself the means to have a better quality of life than you are willing to give to all those that work for you?

This is the heart of Jesus, giving to God and the need of others.  Self is denied and your flesh is crucified daily. (Mat 20:25–28 NKJV)  But Jesus called them to Himself and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. (26) "Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. (27) "And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave; (28) "just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

When a person hears the Word and receives the Word, Jesus refers to this as good ground (Mat 13:8 NKJV)  "But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.  The others here is the seed of The Word.  The question is, Are You Good Ground.

christian business owners:

 

 I remember when I was a child growing up there was a saying we use to when we were trying to temp someone one to do something that we our self were afraid to do because it was probably dangers to very dangers. 

This act, although unknowing to us as a kid, was usually life changing to some degree.  Either you did not take the dare or you became the object of ridicule usually damaging your self-esteem.  If you took the dare and you survived, whether you were injured or not, you either came away with this Rambo mentality or it scared some sense into you.

 If things went badly wrong, well there are those kids and teens that became permanently injured and some died. The one that I remember was I was dared to jump off the side off a bank of an old rock quarry. The height and the depth of the water was not so much the problem, it was the slope of the bank.  This meant that you had to get back and run up to top speed as you left the ledge to clear some ugly jagged rocks that was at the edge of the water. I remember that with a few other dumb things that I did and for me I believed it scared some sense into me.

This old saying that I am talking about is,  “I Double Dog Dare You”. These simple few words, double dog dared, made me and many of you, do some very unbelievable acts, and only through the protection of our guardian angles are we still here on this earth.

For many of us, this was the first introduction to the power that words play in our lives.  In life, those that learn the power of words can use them to much advantage.  As we learn to take advantage of words for our self, this power of words will also have effect on others and lead to the good of others or the demise of others.  The following scripture makes this very clear.

 (Mat 8:6 NKJV)  ...... "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented."

(Mat 8:7 NKJV)  And Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him."

(Mat 8:8 NKJV)  The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.

(Mat 8:9 NKJV)  "For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."

(Mat 8:10 NKJV)  When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!

(Mat 8:11 NKJV)  "And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.

(Mat 8:12 NKJV)  "But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

(Mat 8:13 NKJV)  Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you." And his servant was healed that same hour.

There are several very important points to learn here.  The first is

(Mat 12:34 NKJV)  "Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

(Mat 12:35 NKJV)  "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.

(Mat 12:36 NKJV)  "But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.

(Mat 12:37 NKJV)  "For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned."

“For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” states that the words that come out of our mouth are power by that which fills our hearts.  The power of faith comes from believing.  Faith is put into action by the words that we speak.  The centurion understands the power and use of words.

The second is the statement that Jesus made concerning the understanding of the power of words; I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!  In referring to the centurion’s trust in words,  is the one of two time that the term great faith is used in the Word of God.  The other is in

(Mat 15:27 NKJV)  And she said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table." (Mat 15:28 NKJV)  Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

 

Again the words spoken from this woman’s mouth are what lead to the statement of Jesus concerning here great faith. 

To make states of great faith one’s heart must be filled with belief.  For Christians our belief comes from filling our hearts with God's Word.

(Rom 10:17 NKJV)  So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

So where am I going with all this.  As a Christian business owner, God has put you in control of the purse strings of His Kingdom of earth. You are the treasures of the Kingdom of God on earth . God wants you to understand the awesome responsibility that this position holds. God wants to show you His truth in His Word concerning finances.  

 

The Laodiceans pastor's hearts are hardened.  They are so caught up in the deception of  “The Lie” that is pointed out in the section on this web site titled Pastors, Teachers Evangelists and Church Leaders,  that many can not get free to confess their deception and start teaching the truth.

It is God's plan to use you to achieve His plan for this world.  God wants to open your eyes to understand the simple truth that is taught in the following scriptures

(Mat 20:25 NKJV)  But Jesus called them to Himself and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them.

(Mat 20:26 NKJV)  "Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.

(Mat 20:27 NKJV)  "And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave;

(Mat 20:28 NKJV)  "just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

   Here in this one scripture (Mat 20:28 NKJV) there is hidden

·        Wealth Beyond Your Wildest Dreams 

·      Words of wisdom to Find Heavenly Treasure  to deposit into your heavenly bank account, the only account that you will ever have that will last forever.

·        The Way to Find Hidden Treasure  that will astonish you beyond your wildest dreams.

How is God going to show you the truths that are in these few simple scriptures? 

You have got to see this world through 

The Eyes Of Jesus.  

The only way to do this is through The Life Of Jesus In the Word.  Jesus Revealed Him Self To Us In The Four Gospels.  

So I am Double Dog Daring You To Do Something That Will Forever Change Your life, In This Life and In Your Eternal Life That Is To Come.

You must find a way to listen to the four gospels being read out loud to you.  I found the whole Bible on CD at Sam's Club.  I like it on CD because I have a 10-disk changer in my car and I can go through four gospels over and over with little effort on my part.   What ever it takes, find away to listen to the four gospels and do it repeatedly.    You must listen to the four gospels and only the four gospels over and over again. 

It is necessary to stop listening to all other sources of teaching, everyone.  Just stop for a few weeks.  All the pastors and the teachers and their teaching will all be there when you come back. You have a very important office to fill and God wants to instruct you on how to fill it. 

Get Alone With Jesus Through The Four Gospels. 

Listen To His Heart,  Here His Attitude.  Feel What He Feels.  Learn To Dream His Dreams.  Watch And See What Is Important To Him. Learn To Think About And Care About What He Thinks And Cares About.  

He Want To Live His Life Through You.  

You Must Become Saturated With Him For Him To Do This.

The four gospels are God establishing the new covenant on this earth. Things changed greatly with God’s plan for those that serve Him starting with the birth of Jesus. To find and understand these changes, you must have the four gospels burnt into your heart.  Listening and Hearing over and over again is the only way that you will find the truth. This is the only way that you will be able to see this world through the eyes of Jesus.  God will then use this new insight that you will gain to enable you to understand the whole Bible in light of the new covenant.

To own a business is not by accident, God does nothing by accident. You are not here by accident.  The changes that you will make in your life as the truth of God’s Word is revealed will be no accident.  To be able to see this world through the eyes of Jesus will be no accident. 

The truth that God has shared with me on this web sight can only be discerned by seeing this world through the eyes of Jesus. As you begin to see this world through the eyes of Jesus, The things of this world will then grow strangely dim.  The truth about what is important to God will shine above all that this world says is important. You will be able to hold the office God has given you in the way requested by our Lord.  

The scripture is of no private interpretation. You take the time to listen and God will take the time to teach. I promise you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. 

Can a man that is daring  you to get alone with Jesus for two weeks be so wrong.  I am not asking you to believe anything that I am teaching,  I am asking you to

Listen to the Word, Hear the Word and Believe the Word That Jesus Taught When He Walked the Earth.

I am asking you to learn to see this world through the eyes of Jesus by getting alone with Him and let Him show and teach you how He see things from his point of view.

(Luke 9:23 NKJV)  Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

(Luke 9:24 NKJV)  "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.

 (Luke 9:25 NKJV)  "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?

(Luke 9:26 NKJV)  "For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father's, and of the holy angels.

Paul got alone with Jesus and it changed his life,  This is what he Paul has to say about the out come of getting alone with Jesus.

(Gal 2:20 NKJV)  "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

This is your Big chance to do something really great,

Dye to yourself!

Becoming Absorbed With Jesus Will Do That To You!

Are you up to it?
