In Spirit and Truth
By Matthew W Conway
So Saith The Lord…….
John 14:16,26 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Are you walking with God in His Spirit and Truth or in a manifestation of the “Churchanity” that you were taught as you evolved into your current belief system.
Are you stuck in neutral or in a perpetual state of two steps forward and one step back? This Frustration comes at a cost and ultimately could mean the loss of of your faith or worse, that of your Eternal Life. This outcome is definitely not what our Lord Yahweh desires or has ordained for us.
The Whole Truth and nothing but it
What Yahweh does want for His Sons and Daughters Is complete clarity and understanding of who we are in Him and who He is in us. As His Sons and Daughters Yahweh desires to reveal Himself to us through His Spirit and the unadulterated Truth, Of His written Word. This Truth can only be understood in and through Yahweh’s Spirit Of Truth, never in the vanity of our own minds or imaginations. When we are Operating in and through His Spirit and not focusing on the material things of this world, we then begin to Purge out the “Old Leaven Teachings” in our lives (Old Leaven = Our concepts of the Godhead and what is original sin). God the Father has already set us free from the Law of sin and death, when He fulfilled and Or made full His promises to us through His Sacrifice on the cross for all mankind.
Romans 8:1-6 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Yahshua (Jesus), who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Yahshua hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, Yahweh sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Matthew 5:16-18 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Fire Of God
Gods Anointing Fire and His indwelling presence, teaches us of all things, all Truth.
1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Born of the Spirit and Baptized by Water and Fire 🔥. filled with the Fire & Spirit Of God. God seeks to indwell those who seek and than receive Him. “Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
” Without God’s Indwelling presence we cannot discern and or hope to ever understand the deeper things (Meat) of the Spirit. We as children and or young adults in Christ can only understand what was taught to us by other lost sheep, Even when the real truth is right in front of our eyes.
Matthew 3:11 “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire” King James Version 1611.
Do not crucify God in a new way
Those of us that have received God’s Heavenly gift have been given a glimpse of eternity. Let us not continue to crucify Yahweh in a new way supposing to ourselves that it’s Love. Our Worship of the Father must be of His Spirit and of His Truth, As His Spirit teaches and guides us in our daily walk. There is no other way to eternal Life then through His Death and believing in Yahshua’s eternal Life as the Father. (Yah is Savior)
Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
John 14:6-7 Yahshua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Worship In Spirit and Truth
To Worship God our Father means more than singing praises to Him. It’s not that He doesn’t want us to praise Him in song, It’s just when that song becomes our only form of Worshiping Him or service to Him, then our work for and in Him becomes dead works. It is at that time that we are just playing Church and only going through the motions, never truly pleasing our Father as He wants us to. Hebrews 6:1,4 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost.
God doesn’t recognize this type of Worship as Genuine Worship but something that fulfills our needs and desires, and not His.
John 4:23-24 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Yahweh is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Worship is a Lifestyle
Worship is a Lifestyle a daily choice to carry our cross in the cognitive realization of Who He really is, and not man’s corrupted doctrinal concept of Him. The Truth is that it was not only His Son that died for us on that day. But the Father Himself that put His own-self in our place the on the cross
for the redemption of our sins.
What a truly amazing example of a Loving Father! To die a horrible death as He did for something that His Sons and Daughters did, that is the ultimate Sacrifice. We should always die daily to our sins and check our Spirit and the Spirits of others, in everything we say or do. We have all sinned and have fallen short of God’s plan and purpose and until His return will continue to do so.
1 John 4:1,7-10 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Unity of Faith
Ephesians 5:4-14 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God (Yahweh) and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Have we come to the unity of Faith?
Have we come to the measure and fullness and Stature of Christ?
Or are we As a Church carried about by every new wind of man’s doctrine?
The Ministry Of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor And Teacher according to God’s own word that’s taught throughout Churchanity, Is very much in full effect . We need to wake up to the truth that Yahshua (Jesus) taught and stop throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
The good news is that this Baptism is available to whomever asks for it and that fully surrendering to not only God (Yahweh & Yahushua) being their Savior but also the Lord of their lives.
Ask and you shall receive, Seek and you shall find for He is the only Way Truth and Light (Life). No one enters His kingdom without being one with His Body, Spirit and Truth.
Fleshy man cannot and will not enter the Kingdom of God only Those that are born of the Spirit.. And only those born of Spirit and Fire are the only ones truly part of the Five Fold Ministry described in His Word.
1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly (Spiritual). 49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Praise God for His mercy and Grace….
John 14:12-13 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name (Yahshua), that will I do, that the Father (Yahweh) may be glorified in the Son (Yahshua).
