God takes no pleasure in our repenting over and over again as though this were sufficient; rather does He wish us to
live in perpetual contrition. Only a spirit of this kind can equip us to detect and mourn immediately all disharmony
with the Holy Spirit present in our conduct and deeds. It also helps us to acknowledge our faults when told of them.
People who cover their faults and excuse themselves do not have a repentant spirit...
But when the cross is working deeply a believer comes to know himself. He realizes how undependable are his ideas,
feelings and desires.
Lowliness is not looking down on one's self; rather is it a not looking at one's self at all.

Lord, Lord

If we’re going to move into the true knowledge of God, into true friendship with God, one of the things that will be imperative is that we abdicate the throne of our lives, and turn the government of our lives over to Jesus Christ as Lord. The term LORD is not merely a title. It has a very far-reaching connotation. Jesus said, “Ye call me Lord, Lord, but ye do not the things that I say.”

The Keys

"And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations, and he
shall rule them with a rod of iron." Rev. 2:26-27
To be ready ("hath made us"), there must be a present ruling ("overcoming") in our lives. We will never be
qualified to rule others unless we have first submitted ourselves to divine governmental rule over us.
When Israel entered the promised-land, they were told to slay all of the inhabitants of that land. The names of
these nations can be related to the works of the flesh. Thus, we also must first slay the "inhabitants" of our land
(the works of our flesh) before we will be ready to partake of this promise - "we shall reign on the earth."
These that we must slay are very busy within us, manifesting themselves in various forms as "worldliness."
Thus, they must be utterly slain in order for us to become "the habitation of God" (priestly role) and begin to
"rule all nations" (kingly role).
There are those whom the Lord desires to use, but there is not the discipline, nor the rule over the
circumstances of their lives that would give them the ministry ground and authority that is necessary to fulfill
their calling. It is one thing to be called (in-working preparation). It is another to be sent (out-working
There must be the inner dealings of the Holy Spirit within our lives in order to produce within us the necessary
quality of character, which will make us ready and available to the Lord, in order for us to rule with Him in "that
day." The Lord must first be able to trust us with "The Keys of the Kingdom" which will unlock and open the
door that will release us into the outworking of our part in the Millennial Kingdom rule of our Lord.

All things are new....

Once we really understand what God is seeking, namely, something altogether new for Himself, then we shall see
clearly that we can never bring any contribution from the old realm into that new thing. God wanted to have us for
Himself, but He could not bring us as we were into that which He had purposed; so He first did away with us by the
Cross of Christ, and then by resurrection provided a new life for us. " If any man is in Christ, he is a new creature (mg.
' there is a new creation'): the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new " (2 Cor. 5.17). Being now new
creatures with a new nature and a new set of faculties, we can enter the new kingdom and the new world.
The Cross was the means God used to bring to an end the old things' by setting aside altogether our 'old man', and
the resurrection was the means He employed to impart to us all that was necessary for our life in that new world. " We
were buried therefore with him through baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead through the
glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life " (Rom. 6.4).
The greatest negative in the universe is the Cross, for with it God wiped out everything that was not of Himself :
the greatest positive in the universe is the resurrection, for through it God brought into being all He will have in the
new sphere. So the resurrection stands at the threshold of the new creation. It is a blessed thing to see that the Cross
ends all that belongs to the first regime, and that the resurrection introduces all that pertains to the second. Everything
that had its beginning before resurrection must be wiped out. Resurrection is God's new starting-point.
We have now two worlds before us, the old and the new. In the old, Satan has absolute dominion. You may be a
good man in the old creation, but as long as you belong to the old you are under sentence of death, because nothing of
the old can go over to the new. The Cross is God's declaration that all that is of the old creation must die. Nothing of
the first Adam can pass beyond the Cross ; it all ends there. The sooner we see that, the better, for it is by the Cross that
God has made a way of escape for us from that old creation. God gathered up in the Person of His Son all that was of
Adam and crucified Him; so in Him all that was of Adam was done away. Then God made, as it were, a proclamation
throughout the universe saying: 'Through the Cross I have set aside all that is not of Me; you who belong to the old
creation are all included in that; you too have been crucified with Christ!' None of us can escape that verdict.

Personal holiness in character and actions is a holiness unto Christ, not a holiness from the world. Holiness is
not a legalistic obedience to certain laws and taboos. Holiness is first and foremost an inner union with Him: only as we
are, will, and indeed can come into that union with Him, shall His Holiness (as well as all other aspects of His Person) be
manifest in us and through us unto the world.
This is emphasized all throughout Jesus' teachings on the Kingdom of God. For example, Matthew Chapters 5-7 and 13
contain many teachings which are both directly the opposite of the world's ways, and impossible for any of us to follow;
only as we flow in inner union with Him, can He flow both in us (in our thoughts) and through us (in our actions). And
Romans 14:17 tells us that the essence of the Kingdom of God is being under the full influence and control not of the flesh
but of the indwelling Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus! Hence, the Kingdom of God is not just our obeying our King, but He in us
living His life through us.

His Lordship

The absolute supremacy of God, now working through Christ Jesus, tells only part of the story of His dealings with
mankind. Although all things are under His control, and His purposes will not be prevented, He chooses to not force our
wills. That is because He seeks us to be love-slaves, not puppets nor bond-slaves. He seeks us to choose to serve Him from
our free wills out of love for Him, and not to be forced to obey Him.
Therefore, in His dealings with us individually, He is ever leading and urging us to repent unto His Lordship in all areas of
our lives: that is, for us to change our ways of thinking to acknowledge and depend upon Him in all things. Also, for the
vast majority of us who do indeed choose Him to be our Lord Adonai, we in fact allow Him to reign as Lord only in some,
but not all, aspects of our thoughts, goals, motives, actions, dreams and behaviour. So He deals with us in strange ways,
including through the circumstances in our lives, to bring us to yield yet another aspect to His Lordship. He does this in our
lives one aspect at a time.
He is building and perfecting His Body on earth! His dealings to adjust us to maturity, to sanctify us unto His Lordship,
comprise a life-long process over time, whereby He works unto us His very Holiness. And during this process, He also
deals with us collectively, both to: (1) build us as living stones into His Holy Temple for praise and worship of Him (hence
His dwelling place, since He dwells in the praises of His people); and (2) order us as members of His Body (His physical
manifestation on earth). This first form of adjustment emphasizes our relationships with one another, and that we become
fitted and adjusted to one another; the second form emphasizes our functioning in ministries and service to one another
and collectively to the world. Christ is not only building His church to manifest His love and grace on earth; He is also
building His army to subdue the Kosmos of satan and to manifest His glory on earth. The full physical restoration of
His Kingdom on earth is future (upon His Parousia return). But He now is building His army, to conquer and lead His
children into the Promised land, so that there will exist on earth (before then) a physically tangible foretaste of His Kingdom,
that the rest of the world will see His glory. And how shall He demonstrate His glory on earth? Through us (John 17:22a)!

In the beginning

In the beginning, God created Adam to be perfect, "in His image" (i.e., like Him), and placed him in the Garden on earth as
His agent. Since Adam was in communion and fellowship with God, He delegated to Adam His dominion authority on
earth. But when Adam fell, mankind through sin gave that dominion authority over to satan. Satan did not acquire that
authority from God but only has the authority which is given (often by default) to him by men, by human will (and in some
cases by the Lord).
Both Christ and satan honor human will; Christ by choice, and satan by force. Hence, human will carries "authority". Men
defaulted their authority to satan; and satan as the great liar has convinced mankind to believe that is "normal". satan's
apparently "great" power is because so many masses of people have collectively thus defaulted to him. Ephesians 2:1-3 and
12 tells us that men who are not under Christ are under satan.
But Christ has purchased that dominion authority back from satan, and has delegated it to us His Body. Christ after His
crucifixion was given the authority of God over satan. As man He served notice to satan that neither He nor any of His
subjects will ever give human authority to satan. In fact, in Ephesians 1:20-23 we see that God has delegated to our
resurrected Christ His full authority over earth, Heaven, and hell, including satan's complete Kosmos!So, all that satan does, he does only by the expressed permission of God and by human will. We see in Job 2:1-6, Luke22:31 and Ephesians 1:20-21, that satan can do absolutely nothing without God's expressed permission and approval. God uses satan as His agent to enforce the Adamic curse. God also uses satan in many ways to deal in our lives to adjust and
mature us, i.e., in our "wilderness trials", etc. But satan has only been given permission to rule the earth for a season. That
season ended legally on Calvary; it is being ended in fact as God uses His church, believer by believer, to conquer the world
back from satan. Christ has supreme authority to reign now. And He is calling all of us, now, to be His subjects indeed.

Spirit walking

The more spiritual a child of God becomes the more he is conscious of the significance of walking according to
the spirit and the dangers of walking according to the flesh. But how is he actually to walk by the spirit? The
answer given in Romans 8 is to mind the spirit and to possess a spiritual mind: “they that are after the flesh mind
the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For the mind of the flesh is
death; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace” (vv. 5-6 ASV). To walk after the spirit means to have the mind
set on the things of the spirit; it also means to have the spirit rule the mind. Those who act according to the
spirit are none other than those who are occupied with the things of the inner man and whose mind is therefore
spiritual. Walking by the spirit simply denotes that a mind under the control of the spirit sets itself on the things
of the spirit. This implies that our mentality has been renewed and has become spirit-controlled and thus qualified
to detect every movement and silence of the spirit.

In Him....All things

Do we understand that what God requires is not a lamb, nor is what He gives the bread of life. We also come to understand that God does not provide the way, the truth, and the life, neither does Christ merely use His power to restore man’s life or man’s sight. In the whole of John’s Gospel we see only one monumental fact, which is, that Christ is all these things. He says He is the light of the world—He does not say He is able to give people light. He says He is the bread of life—He does not say He will give us the bread of life. He says He is the way—He does not say He will guide us to walk in the way. He says He is the truth—He does not say He will teach us a truth. He says He is true life—He does not say He will give us a life. When Lazarus died Christ did not tell Mary and Martha He had the power to raise up their brother; instead He declared that He is the resurrection. I wish you to see that Paul later on says the same thing as did our Lord Jesus. He knows the Lord well and he unveils some marvelous facts. First of all, he says to Timothy, “Christ Jesus (who is) our hope.” I love to read this particular word. How about you? He does not say our hope is in Christ Jesus; he instead asserts that Christ Jesus is our hope. It is not a pinning our hope on Christ, expecting to be given hope by Him; rather is it Christ himself our hope. One of the most popular Scripture verses used in our preaching is 1 Corinthians 1.30 which states that “of (God) are ye in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom to us from God, both righteousness and sanctification and redemption” (literal). God has not given us righteousness, He gives Christ to us since Christ is our righteousness. God has not given us sanctification, He gives us Christ because Christ is our sanctification. God has not given us redemption, He gives us Christ because Christ is our redemption. God has not given us wisdom, He gives us Christ inasmuch as Christ is our wisdom. It is for this reason that we say God’s Christ is God’s everything. God’s Christ is God’s thing and affair; aside from Him God has neither thing nor affair.

Probably you will ask me, Why do you lay such stress on this point? Because here lies the difference between living Christianity and dead Christianity. The distance between these two ways is incalculable.

For in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him and unto him; and he is before all things, and in him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it was the good pleasure of the Father that in him should all the fullness dwell; and through him to reconcile all things unto himself, having made peace through the blood of his cross: through him, I say, whether things upon the earth, or things in the heavens. (Col. 1.16-20)

The enemy of our “redemptive purpose and ministry calling” has been successful in our seeking to push into the future any effectiveness that we may presently have.  He attempts to convince us that we are not worthy of such - but maybe some time in the future we will be.  Thus, we say, “Someday I will have power and authority.”
Our placing an effective ministry into the future does not relate to the “manifold wisdom of God” that is to have a “present” outworking - “now.”  In His “eternal wisdom,” our Lord said, “…not many mighty, not many noble, are called, but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise….” (I Corinthians 1:26-27).
Because of our inabilities, weaknesses, and limitations, a greater “glory” will be given to the Lord – for it can be clearly seen by others that we are incapable of that which the Lord is enabling us to accomplish.

“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”  Acts 4:13

Many have noticed that the Lord is not moving in our country as He is in other nations.  This is because they have a greater tendency to believe in the supernatural and what the Lord has said, and then act on it in simple faith.  We know just enough to hinder our faith and ability to respond as the Lord desires.  The Word says:

For to whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required….”  Luke 12:48

We are to pray that the “eyes of our understanding” will be opened, so we might become both willing and available to the Lord in this, “the day of His power.”  The Lord is getting a body of “overcomers” ready for the outworking of His end-time purposes.

To do this, it is necessary that He move beyond the limitations of our limited faith and ability, through direct intervention.  Therefore, at this present time, there are those within the Church whom the Lord is moving upon to intercede and pray that He will be able to “break out” of these limiting hindrances that are within us, in order to move through us in intervention to accomplish His present day purposes.

May each of us look past our seeming limitations, and perceived reasons as to why we cannot be used by the Lord.  Then, as an over-comer, rise above these and in simple faith respond and say as Mary of old:

Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it to me according to Your word….  Luke 1:38

Now, we can ask in faith knowing we have fulfilled our part in creating an open heaven (by displacing the rulers and powers of darkness), through which the SON can brightly shine to produce upon and within us a spiritual “tan” - His manifested glory that will draw the nations to Him.

Friend of Jesus

There is a difference between being a child of God and being a friend of God.
It’s possible to be saved without necessarily being a friend of the Lord according
to His definition or idea of friendship. I’ll give you a verse. Jesus said in
John 15:14 "You are my friends, if you do what I command you"
Now He had told them that their names were written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
They were saved, as we would call it today in New Testament language.
"Ye are my friends IF ye do whatsoever I command you." In other words, true friendship
with the Lord, as with the Father, involves the recognition of His sovereignty over our lives,
and our subjection to His sovereignty in obedience to do His will whatever the cost. Could you follow that?
It’s one thing to recognize His sovereignty. It’s another thing to subject ourselves to that sovereignty.
If we’re going to move into the true knowledge of God, into true friendship with God, one of the things 
that will be imperative is that we abdicate the throne of our lives, and turn the government of our lives 
over to Jesus Christ as Lord. The term LORD is not merely a title. It has a very far-reaching connotation. 
Jesus said, Luke 6:46 “Ye call me Lord, Lord, but ye do not the things that I say.”

Your Personal Prophesy

Walk in Your Personal Prophesy
1 Samuel 10:5-8
“... you shall come to the hill of God”
You have a meeting with God and receive your personal prophesy

“Where the Philistine garrison is”
The enemy tries to bring an opposite attack.
Divine resistance to strengthen us in that word.

“... you will meet a company of prophets”
You are introduced to the spirit of prophesy and the
world-wide prophetic movement

Coming down from the high places”
Anything in us of greater importance than your personal prophesy must come down,
and be replaced. God’s word must be highest thing in your life.

“With a stringed instrument, a tamborine, a flute and a
harp” A new spirit of worship. Worship less than 100% is not worship.
True worship is total abandonment.
“And they will be prophesying”
You will begin to prophesy. You go from receiving
prophecy to prophesying. What you receive you must give.

“Then the spirit of the Lord will come upon you”
You will see a release of demonstrations of the Spirit.

“And you will prophesy with them [the prophets]”
The mantle and spirit of prophesy calls us into the prophetic.
“And be turned into another man”
You become somebody new.

“And let it be”
Just let the prophetic word perform its own work.
Don’t try to force it to happen.

“... these signs come unto thee”
You will begin to see confirmation of your prophetic word by signs.

“That you do as the occasion demands”
When those confirming signs come, follow that leading
of the Lord. Then you will enter into an
occasion to do what that word says to do.

“For God is with you”
Then you will know that God is with you.

“Then you shall go down to Gilgal [place of
circumcision]” He will then complete your heart circumcision
to make you tender.

“And surely I will come down to you”
Once tenderized via heart circumcision, then God will
come down to you and begin to partner with you.
If you want Him to partner with you, then wait for Him.

“To offer burnt offerings”
Burn your flesh! Remaining dying to self.

“And make sacrifices of peace offerings”
Worship and servanthood. You will be
treated as a servant. Quit fighting with God.
Wholeness in your relationship with God.

“7 days” [perfect number]
You are cooked in God’s oven until perfectly done.
Burning of self, serving, worshiping, and cooperation
with God.

“Till I come to you”
Sooner you do, sooner 7 days will be over.
God’S waiting on you, not you on Him.

“And show you what you should do”You will be in full fulfillment of your prophetic word.

Every need is a call to prayer...

According to the knowledge you have received from God, you realize you should pray and petition Him for supply.
But at the time you see the need your spirit does not feel at all like praying. What should you do? You should pray
with your mind instead of waiting for your spirit to move. Every need is a call to prayer. Although at the start you
pray despite the silence in your spirit, as you pray on you will soon be conscious of something arising within you. It
signifies your spirit has joined in at last in this work of prayer... What we must do is pray with what the mind
remembers to be the truth we once received and in that prayer resist the power of darkness.

Yes Lord, I will...

If the Christian patiently endures temporary discomforts and courageously exercises his volition to recapture
surrendered territory, he shall find himself progressively being freed. Little by little as the ground is refused to the enemy and restored to the believer the degree of penetration will correspondingly decrease.
The obedience of the Christian to God ought to be unconditional. Wherefore in the practice of obedience the believer goes through the following steps: (a) willingness to do God's will (John 7:17); (b) revelation of that will to his intuition by the Holy Spirit (Eph. 5:17); (c) strengthening by God to will His will (Phil. 2:13); and (d) strengthening by God to do His will (Phil. 2:13). Hence God first works in us to will and then works in us to work for His good pleasure (Phil. 2:13). During this struggle it is positively essential that the believer stand on Romans 6:11, acknowledging himself as one with the Lord: the Lord's death is his death. Such faith releases him from the authority of the evil spirits since they can have no power over the dead.

Gaining spiritual life is conditional on suffering loss. We cannot measure our lives in terms of "gain"; they must be
measured in terms of "loss." Our real capacity lies not in how much we retain but in how much has been poured
out... The power of love is attested by love's sacrifice. If our hearts are not separated from the love of the world, our
soul life has yet to go through the cross.

Your Position

When God first approaches us, His first question is:  “Where art thou?”  Well what do
we answer?  We have to answer as Adam.  Make the confession of the thing that has brought us to the 
level, or the plane, or the position we find ourselves before Him. And so he answers, and he makes 
a confession of it.  He makes a real confession of it.  And on the basis of that confession, how 
many see that God is able to bring a blessing. What is it?  His answer.    His answer.  “Oh these 
leaves will never cover you Adam. You own where you are?”  “Yes”  “And you've tried to cover.”  
“Yes”  “Do you see how it is of no avail?”   “Yes.”   How many see a deep, lovely, confession of 
the whole situation?  Then after that, He says, “Well then come here.   I'll show you.”  That 
loving God, slays a little animal, takes it's skin and covers him.  How many see that is the first 
picture of Jesus?  That's the first picture of the Lamb slain.  That's the first shedding of blood  
for  this  redemption  of  this  man,  that  from  his  new  position,  now,  having answered the 
question, that was of God...why?  To provoke an answer.   What is the answer? A confession.  
Because your confession will become the platform upon which God may move once more.  And restore 
and bless, and do a thousand things for Him. How many can see that, just that one 
point? God uses this in the development of our whole Christian life and experience.  He 
works from a good, sound, foundation.  He starts with position.  And we have to own our position. 
It's quite difficult to do that sometimes, isn't it?  That's very difficult. We could make all 
other kinds of confessions.  But sometimes just to say, “I'm wrong,” that's the most difficult. 
There are people willing to be martyrs, and be hung up by their thumbs, rather than say, “I was 
wrong.”That's right.  They would do everything else, and cut their feet off, and everything!  
That's right.  This is silly, crazy, ego in here.  He is such a... watch out for him.  How many 
know he has a lot of religion, too?  How many know the Devil has religion, too?  Understands it 
very well.  Quotes scripture too, and is very “nice;” says at times he comes as an angel of light.  
Well people don't know that, they say, “The only time the Lord appears is when the Spirit falls, 
and everyone says, 'glory, glory, glory...,” then that's the Lord, but if somebody gets sick, then 
that's the Devil.  Aren't we funny? Oh, we're funny!  I deal with people and I say, “My goodness, 
you don't seem to know the Lord from the Devil.”  “Would the Lord do that?”  I say, “Well sure!  Go 
to the Bible.  Didn't He do a lot of 'funny' things?”  “Well...?”  Come on!  Didn't He?!! When He 
wanted to get ahold of Job, what did He do, let the Devil loose on him, didn't He?  He didn't come 
down to Job, and say, “Now dear brother Job, there is somewhat I have to say unto thee.  Thou art a 
perfect man, a lovely specimen, a great potential is in you.  I want to help you very much.” And He 
had a real conversation with Job, and He said, “Now get down Job, and I'll pray for you!  One, two, 
three... bumble bee!!!”  The Lord delivered Job!   He didn't do that.    
Its not quite as dramatic as that, but I mean the philosophy of it is going on that way. Yes it is. 
Yes it is. Using the very principle.   But they're disguised with “Hallelujah...”   Well the Lord
knows “hallelujah” too.  No, He says I can only get at you through this means. And He let the Devil 
loose on him.  “Oh... it's the Devil!  Oh, the Devil!!  Everybody cast the Devil out and all the 
demons!!!”  Now have a deliverance meeting of some kind and kill the Devil.  Well, they haven't got 
a deliverance meeting up to that.  I'm waiting for one where they really could kill him.  Wouldn't 
that be something?  I wouldn't go near the meeting; I couldn't take up with all that stuff.   But I 
kind of would like to peek through the knot hole to see it go over.  You can't play with God like 
that.  “In the word... ask what you will!!”  It does.  It says a lot of other things too.  So we 
won't play around in that field.  It isn't good.  Your reaction in that isn't good.  It will have 
to take weeks and months, and some people even years to get over it.
Name your position.  And go on.  And out of that, on that platform, God will come. God will come.  
He'll come on that platform.  But not one you're fixing up.  “Oh let's build a lovely platform now. 
 Hallelujah!! You pray, I pray, she prays, we pray, all pray... pray... all power, power, 
power....”  Oh no.  Sit down.  You'll never get a platform if you come on that.  He's way off in 
the heavens, and we say, “Well where is God?  We've got a platform all fixed for Him.  You've tried 
to regulate God and the Spirit long enough. Please stop.  I said the other day, people are praying 
a terrific, tremendous, super, expeditious moving of the Spirit of God!  And I stay behind and say, 
“Keep it up there, Lord.   You know how.”   I do.   Do you know what?   Because flesh doesn't know 
anything yet, and religious flesh--- especially!  God will pour out His Spirit in some lovely, new, 
beautiful moving, and six months from now that would be all channeled, named, and labeled.  That's 
true.  That's the way flesh is.  Now you know why I don't get in a lot of things.  I can't take it. 
 I'll be fair with you.  I can't take it.  I'm not geared to it.  I don't want to be mixed up with 
it.  No, flesh is like that.  It can't let God move as HE wants to.   It has to be cataloged, and 
fixed, and programmed, and labeled, and fuddled with and by that time the Holy Ghost is out and 
everybody says, “Where's the Lord?”  And I say, “Well for heavens sake, He got out of here ten, 
fifteen years ago!” Don't.  Sit down.  Don't ask me if you want to know.  I could tell you plenty 
of things, but you wouldn't want to hear them.  I could.  I could tell you plenty of things this 
morning, but you wouldn't want to hear them.  It would upset the faith of some of you, and I don't 
want you to 'backslide and go to hell,' so I'm just going to talk about nice things.   And pleasant 
things, you know.   I wouldn't dare to tell the truth, because people can't take truth.  They can't 
take it.  No they couldn't.  You aren't honest enough to begin with; you think you are honest.  
Would you like to have the truth come down and upset just about half the stuff you're mixed up 
with?  How many would like that? No, you wouldn't. You wouldn't. You couldn't take it. You live 
long enough, and God is going to get in there and upset a lot of things. Yes He will.  Some have 
already found it in their experience.  He's not done with any one of us.

I Believe

I believe it, and it is translated into time and space, and here it is – a tangible
reality. But I have that before it becomes a tangible reality; I have it in my Spiritual Consciousness, as
a live fact, and I live under the power of it. And I rejoice in it, and eventually it comes through into the
place of demonstration here. That's the way God works with us. Reckon yourself dead to that old.
How many see it's a “reckoning” process that takes Faith? Reckon yourself dead because, actually –
that's True. Don't pay so much attention to your body reaction to the thing. Take it in Spirit and
Believe it, and it will Record in your body. I'm always healed in Spirit before I'm healed in my body. I
am. That whole thing is in me, in my Spirit – I receive it, rejoice in it, and eventually it is translated
and it comes back to me in my “body fashion.” But people won't take it that way, they think that if I
“have faith,” I'd have it right here, right NOW. Now wait just a minute. No. FAITH is the medium
which you use to bring it from that realm down here to this realm. That's why the word 'faith' in not
understood too well. The faith that brings a thing that I'm trusting for here, here it is that God holds it
out to me. Now the only medium that I have for getting that from the realm of the Spirit where I see it
and I know it and I believe it with all my heart; the only medium that I have is that of faith to bring it
down to a conscious level here of demonstration.

Perfect Love

1 Jn. 4:17, KJV Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                As He is by nature, so are we by nature…  Jesus' Bride, the Church, has been called out of darkness to become a Companion of like nature and ability—not when we die and go to Heaven, but in this "world." We are too quick to dismiss His decreed destiny to cover this cosmos—this "temporary, cosmetic, melts-in-the-fire, transient system, order, and arrangement of things"—with His glory. That is why He purposely left His Body behind when He ascended to the Father.  He becomes we!  This end-time, "third-day people" will be given dominion in the earth by virtue of their having been conformed to His image and likeness. According to John the apostle, our global ministry will be marked by "boldness." This is translated from the Greek word parrhesia used in First John 4:17. It means "all out-spokenness, frankness, bluntness, publicity; by implication, assurance."Such is the dynamic ministry of the "new creation many-membered Man" who will go forth in corporate anointing!

The Anointing

The anointing is not a feeling, an idea, or an atmosphere. It is a knowing. It is the assurance that God is with us. And there is more...The anointing is a Person—Immanuel, God with us; the Messiah, the Christ!
The Old Testament prophesied the coming of the "Messiah," and the New Testament faithfully records the fulfillment of those prophecies with the birth and ministry of the "Christ." This word was transliterated from the Greek word christos, which like its Hebrew equivalent, Messiah, means "the anointed one." Those are wonderful facts to know, but why is all this important to us today? It is important because the dispensation of the fullness of times has dawned! The day of restoration and worldwide revival has come. Now is the time in which the Father predetermined that He would bring all things in Heaven and on earth together under one Head, even Christ. The only way that will happen is through the anointing of Almighty God because our best efforts over the past years since Pentecost have produced a weak and tasteless mixture of fleshly compromise, bickering, and only a little holiness.
The fountainhead of all anointing is the Lord Jesus Christ, the Root of David, Earth's one true Messiah. All truth, by precept and practice, must be founded upon the centrality and supremacy of Jesus Christ, the everlastingly preeminent One. That is why it is important to understand that the anointing is not a thing but a Person.

Two realms

We were created to function in the “spirit realm.”
But, there is an active enemy who ever seeks to keep us “earth bound” - living in the soul realm.
There are two trees in our garden (our daily experience).
We have to choose many times each day what we will allow inside.
To feed our spirit is to eat from the Tree of Life (Christ in us), this produces life and peace.
To eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil produces death.
This is a knowledge of the natural realm, of things that are temporary and not eternal.
These two “trees” are placed in the pattern of each of our lives.
There are two realms before us: one is the physical world, the other is the spiritual world.
With our five senses, we live in the first; with our faith we live in the second.

Man child

Rev 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
Jesus rent the veil and released all things. The mature Church will arise and walk in all that Messiah died for! All creation awaits the manifestation and unveiling of the Son in and through a vast company of sons and daughters. We are destined to understand, acknowledge, appropriate, experience, and then manifest the spoils of His eternal conquest in Gethsemane, on Calvary's cross, and at the empty tomb! It is not simply an intellectual understanding of this truth that will guarantee an "entering" into the spiritual reality of this overcoming company. We must first internally experience the truth of "sonship" before we can externally manifest its living reality to the world. Right now in many hidden places around the world an immeasurable company is being trained in the school of the Spirit. The nature of Christ is being woven into the fabric of their beings.
The process is tiresome and tedious, but the results will be stunning and spectacular.  All  of  creation  is  on  tiptoe  in  anxious  anticipation  of  the dramatic   display   of   this   glorious   spectacle—the  corporate   Man,   the Manchild, sons of His love. We are about to be fully delivered from the bondage and corruption of our "Egypt"—the slavery of sin and satan—and finally released into the freedom of the glory of the children of God!

Spirit Filled

Before He could fill me with His Spirit, before He could fill me with this marvelous Spirit of Life and
Light... before – He put me thru a most grueling, terrifying consecration. This was
before. He was preparing the soil. People often say, “Why doesn't this person go, and why doesn't...
they've all been baptized.” I say, “Listen. Don't you know God has to have something to baptize when He baptizes.”
Don't you know He does? Yes, He has to have something to baptize. He couldn't baptize me if
I had come along that way. No. he shut me up till about three or four o'clock in the morning on the floor. I
had never seen anyone get on their knees and get down and pray. Methodists don't do that way. But
you know when the Spirit moves on you, how many know it doesn't matter about the posture of your
body. You can be flat on your back or on your stomach or almost anywhere. When prayer goes on in
you. And here was this “awful” groaning for God. I was saved, but God wanted to do something in
me before He could really fill me with the Spirit. And do you know what it was? It was just this, I had
never really related it before in my life. I had experienced, but I didn't know it had any relation to
anything in here. All thru that evening until two or three o'clock in the morning, down on my face
before the Lord, I was conscious of the Lord; I never knew He could talk to people, because I had
never been taught that. I didn't know about that, but I knew that if their was ever anything real in my
whole life, here was the presence of God dealing with my immortal Spirit. And when He began to deal
with me, it was not concerning sins, and failures, and all of that. That had been taken care of, I was a
Christian already. He was beginning with all the legitimate issues of living. All of the right things, all
of the correct things, and all of the good things to which I might become attached in some way.
Family– why during that period of those three, four, five hours that I was on the floor before God, I
buried everyone of my relatives. I wept all my tears for them right then. My heart was broken for them right then.

Gods will

Was there one day in your life when you consecrated yourself absolutely to the Lord? I do not mean
consecrating yourself to Him to be a preacher, but consecrating yourself to Him to do His will. You do
not have to be concerned for what God's will is; you only have to consecrate yourself honestly to Him to
do His will. You must realize that you should have a direct relationship to God's will; this relationship
should not be affected by the brothers and sisters. If the Lord wants me to go to the east, I will go the
east. I will not be affected by any person, event, or thing. However, my eyes will not be set on the east,
but on God Himself. The danger of God's workers today is the danger of making their work the center.
We must be directly related to God and set our eyes on Him alone. The seven Spirits in Revelation are
sent forth into all the earth, but they do not have anything to do with the earth. The seven Spirits are
before the throne of God and are related to God alone. We must consecrate ourselves fully to
God at least once, for the carrying out of His will. This is the starting point in our knowledge of His
will. Without this starting point, we can never understand God's will properly.
An absolute consecration is the starting point of knowing God's will. But if you want to advance in His
will, you must deal with all the hindrances. If you have any stubbornness, jealousy, pride, or petty
problems of a similar nature, you will be spiritually sick and unable to know God's will. If you want to
stop your ear from hearing anything, there is no need to plug it with a rod or a desk; all you need is a
little finger. The same principle applies in knowing God's will--a little hindrance will stop us from
knowing His will. Once I was taking a walk with a sister in a garden. After some time the two of us
became tired, and we sat down on some chairs under a tree. She said, "There is a bright star in the sky,
but I cannot see it because a leaf has blocked the view. Brother , if someone comes and tells me
many ways to see the star, I still could not see it even though the ways he said were good. The reason is
that my position is wrong; I am standing on the wrong ground." The words she said that night are still
fresh in my mind today. She explained that a little leaf could block the light of a big star. Many times,
God's will is frustrated by very small things. When you seek after God's will again and again and are still
unclear, you should not change the method, but change the person. If you find that you cannot know
God's will, it means that there is some blockage between you and God. It may be that God has spoken to
you already, but that you are unwilling to obey Him. You have to remove these hindrances. After you
have dealt with these problems thoroughly, you will know God's will!

Daily experience

The daily life of the Christian is summed up in the word 'receive'. Every challenging thing that
God demands of me long-suffering, meekness, humility, goodness, holiness, joy is not something I
am, or something I do, or some virtue I acquire or attain to. It is Christ in me. Each is the
manifestation of Him. Let Him be revealed, naturally and spontaneously, and that is enough.
'He is made unto us . . .' If He were our Justifier, Sanctifier, Redeemer, we could understand.
But it does not say He does these things. It uses abstract nouns: He is these things. Christ in us
meets every demand of God, and every demand of the circumstances around us.
It is not in us to be humble, nor shall we find it helps to trust in the power of Christ to make us
humble. Christ is humble, naturally-that is, by His very nature-and He is made our humility, for
Christ is our all. Even faith and trust and obedience, if we regard them as virtues by which we
attain, will prove ineffective. It is not that I trust His Word, therefore I can be longsuffering. It is
that Christ is long suffering, and, praise God, Christ is in me! Once again, this is Isaac, natural,
simple, spontaneous, trusting implicitly and without question, because the Father has made
absolutely sufficient provision.

The Lamb

The Cross is God's JUDGMENT OF THE WORLD! And in that great and terrible Day of
the LORD, God is going to execute the sentence of judgment that He decreed at
Golgotha. We may be inclined to believe that Christ came as a Lamb to redeem us, but
that in His resurrection and enthronement He is now ruling on the throne of glory as a
Lion. This is not exactly right; and it is yet to be revealed and made manifest in the earth,
that He who conquered over sin and Satan and the world by His sacrifice of the Cross, is
now ruling and reigning as THE LAMB on the throne. The Lion of Judah is only
mentioned once in the Book of Revelation, and twenty-eight times as the Lamb! When no
one was worthy to open the book and loose the seals, one of the elders said,
"Weep not:
behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the
book, and to loose the seven seals thereof"
(Rev. 5:5). But when John turned to see this
mighty Lion...
"Lo, in the midst of the throne... stood a Lamb as it had been slain" (vs.6).
It is significant that John the beloved never saw
"the Lion of the tribe of Judah" as a
powerful lion, either here or elsewhere in the Book of Revelation. Why?--we might ask.
Because this "Lion" was still the Lamb in heart, in nature and in character; and God
wants His people to always see Him and worship Him as the Lamb on the throne, and to
"follow the Lamb"
of meekness, rather than the Lion of power. These wounds in His
hands and feet and side are no longer the bruises inflicted upon Him by sinful men, but
badges of Honor and Glory! And if we would reign with Him, He wants us to know it is
only as we "suffer with Him.""

I believe there is a calling to our heart. The Lord is preparing a witness that will be caught up
into a higher realm of identity and authority. It is a birthing out of the earthly into the heavenly.

Out of the religious into the spiritual. Our connection with the Adamic nature must
be cut before we can experience this. As we respond to this call and make ourselves
available and allow the Lord to work within, we will be lifted and
empowered by the Lord beyond anything that the world has ever seen.
The words of the enemy will always push us down and keep us earth bound.
It is our destiny to operate in this spiritual dimension. From this dimension we will
become an expression of His life and a present day witness to the world.
He is returning to be glorified in the Saints.

Isaiah 40:31"...They that wait upon the Lord shall mount up with wings...."

The Light

We are not only soldiers of the cross; we are heirs to the throne.
The divine nature permeates our souls, transforms our minds,
transplants our hearts, and transfigures our spirits.
We were made to be vessels of His glory and vehicles of His light.
The children of God were never intended to live by their own strength.
If your life can still be explained in terms of you – your personality,
your gifts, your talent, your will-power, your money, your courage,
your dedication, your scholarship, or your anything –
you are not yet walking as Jesus did. You will need to learn how the Son lived by
the power of the Holy Spirit before you can become a true vessel of God’s glory.
In the same way Jesus received His life from the Father and thereby displayed
the Father’s glory in this world, we are to receive our life from the Son. Jesus

“And the glory which You {the Father} gave Me I have given them, that
they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me.” (John 17:22-23)

The Son is able to continue bringing glory to the Father as we permit Him to
display the light of His life and works through our mortal bodies while walking
in this world.

“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and
godliness.” (2 Pet. 1:3)

God’s children were created to reflect the light of God’s glory. We have been
designed in a way that will permit the divine power of Christ’s Spirit to work
through us. We are therefore expected to reflect a heavenly nature that is referred
to in the Scriptures as the “light of life” in our daily activities. And according to
God’s Word, everyone who sees this “light” will know the life is coming through
a work of God’s power.

I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in
darkness, but have the light of life. (John 8:12)
