Worship In Spirit And In Truth!
By Matthew W Conway

So Saith The Lord…….

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 Spirit, whom the Father (Yahweh) will send in my name (Yahshua), 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 “Churchianity” 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 your faith or worse, that of your Eternal Life. This outcome is definitely not what our Lord Yahweh desires or has ordained for us.

Definition of Churchianity. : a usually excessive or narrowly sectarian attachment to the practices and interests of a particular church.

The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth…….

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 by Yahweh’s Spirit Of Truth and 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.

Do Not Crucify Me 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 (Jesus) and His eternal Life as the Father. And that the Fullness of Yahweh Dwelled in Yahshua (Yah is Savior) not half not part but Fully dwelt in Him.

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.

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 and our weekly communion in remembrance of Him, Becomes our only way of Worshiping of Him. Then our service to and for Him, becomes a type of 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 desires 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,

Colossians 2:2,8-9 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

God doesn’t recognize this type of Worship as Genuine Worship of Him, but a type of worship that fulfills our needs and desires.

 

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 God 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 our Father 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 such a horrible death for something that His own creation did, that my friends 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 for our life in some way, shape or form. And until His final return for His Sons and Daughters we will continue to do so.

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.

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.

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). Amen, Amen, Amen

Now Concerning the Collection for the Saints!

22406038_2025606444338221_8065726931015426228_n
1st Corinthians 16:1-3 Explained

1st Corinthians 16:1-3 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.

The Drought…….
Between 41-54 A.D. there was a drought, that happened that was predicted by the prophet Agabus. Acts 11:27-30 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea: Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage…

Drought Relief…….
The drought effected a large portion of the area in and around Jerusalem. As then so it is today there’s always a need for food during and after a drought which also can create great famine in the area. This is due to the fact that it takes the land much time to recover and become productive again. In this type of situation it would become necessary that a collection would be made by the leaders of the Church, and the community to create relief for those involved and or effected by this event.
It is believed that the apostle Paul wrote 1st Corinthians in the late spring of 55 A.D., and he and Barnabas began a collection that was meant for the drought relief. Paul mentions this collection in his letter to the congregation of God at Rome (about 58 A.D.), saying to them in Romans 15:24-28 Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company. But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints. For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things. When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.

The Work Of the Kingdom…….
The Collections that are being spoken of here are not Old Testament Tithes nor are they Love offerings for the building up of the Church (Other than feeding those in need). The collections were also were not used to support Paul or the other Church Leaders in the process of doing their individual ministries. Their own individual occupations as tent makers, carpenters, fishermen and the like, provided most if not all of the funding that was needed to promote the Kingdom of God. Of course there were additional love offerings in many forms that were given to them along their path, however it was their vocation that mainly supported their ministry and service for the Kingdom of God. Acts 17 1-3, Acts 18:1-5 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ. After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers. And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.

Summary…….
The collection of money in question was used for disaster relief for the Christians and or Saints living in that area at the time, and those that were effected by the prior years drought and famine associated with that event. This Scripture is often taking out of context to what was originally taught by the Apostles and should not be interpreted in any other way.
Any such interpretation is a Doctrine of man and as such should be repented of.

Hebrews 6:1-6 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, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. 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.

Kingdom Unto The Beast

IMG_2181
Revelation 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Doctrines of Devils

This Says The Lord God of Jacob (Israel)
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, speaking lies in hypocrisy, havingi their conscience seared with a hot iron, For when the Gentiles, who have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, they, not having the law, are a law unto themselves, which shows the work of the law written in their hearts,their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts between accusing and excusing one another.
Unto the pure, all things are pure; but unto those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

Be Of One and the Same Mind

Be of the same mind one toward another. Set not your mind on high things, but condescend to things that are lowly. Be not wise in your own conceits. make full my joy, that ye be of the same mind, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind; doing nothing through faction or through vainglory, but in lowliness of mind each counting other better than himself; not looking each of you to his own things, but each of you also to the things of others. Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. Have a good conscience, that, whereas they speak evil of you as of evildoers, they who falsely accuse may be ashamed by your good manner of life in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for welldoing than for evildoing. For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.

Gods New Covenant with us

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore boldness, brethren, to enter into the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living Way, which He hath consecrated for us through the veil that is to say, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our brother washed with pure water. Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith without wavering for He is faithful who promised, Amen, Amen, Amen.

The Quickening

18057969_1943942295837970_5413657175739620732_n

So Saith the Spirit of the Lord!
If the Spirit of Him who raised Yahshua (Jesus) from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Yahshua (Jesus) from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam (Yahshua) became a life-giving spirit. And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air (Satan), of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But our God and Father Yahweh, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ by grace you have been saved. Flee from all things of the flesh, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Yahshua (Jesus), who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time—Yah who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion!

Amen, Amen, Amen.

What God Is, And What He Is Not!

17630055_1932345966997603_1750635117535988036_n

God is Spirit and God is our Creator and Father, He came to earth in the form of His only Son Emanuel (God is with us).
Colossians 1:13-16 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.

Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, (The First Adam) in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. The second Adam, Yahshua (Jesus) the human form of Yahweh and who was and is the expressed Image of God (Yah). Hebrews 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty (Yah) on high.

God (Yah) is not “Three Distinct Persons” as the diluted and corrupted Trinity Doctrine teaches.
Yah is a “Spiritual Being” with Four distinct attributes In his divine nature. And has a plethora of other qualities that He possesses. Yah (The Self-Existent One) is our Father Yahweh, He lives in and through His Son Yahshua (The Self-Existent One Is Our Savior) and Or (Yah Is Savior), and Yah is and has a Holy Spirit. Yah is One distinct Eternal, Omnipotent and Omnipresent Spiritual being. What He is Not is the creation of adulterated, fallible and deluded natural man.

Romans 1:20-23 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. And so it is written! John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Only those that are in His light and walk in the revelation of His Spirit, can truly begin to know Yah in all His Glory and presence. In His sacrifice for the redemption of man, Yahweh Possessed human flesh. By our worship, our freewill, And our yielding to His Lordship. He promises to eternally possesses us, with His Holy Spirit and Truth. 

John 4:23-24 But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 14:16-17 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. 1 John 2:25-27 This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life. These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. 

Satan is the god of this current world system and has blinded the unbelieving mind, keeping them in the darkness and eternal disparity of His expiring kingdom. Yah’s true gospel has been hidden from Satan’s workers of greed and deception. This is so they can not see the true Glory of Yah, And the real revelation of His Spirit, being manifested through His Sons and Daughters in these final days.

Jude 1:17-21 But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they were saying to you, “In the last time there will be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts.” These are the ones who cause divisions, worldly-minded, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
2 Corinthians 4:1-6 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart, but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. ” Romans 8:18-19 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. 

Yahweh “A Spiritual Being” Fulfilled His promise of redemption, by placing himself temporarily In the flesh and bones of Yahshua. He was present on the Earth as the atoning sacrifice for our sins, transferring His Saving grace to mankind.

2 Corinthians 5:18-19 Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Genesis 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Yahweh’s eternal form is Spirit and we were all created in His image. When Yahweh came to Earth living in human form of Yashua, He was at that time fully man and fully God. This Second Adam, was the Holy reparation for the original sin of the First Adam and his subsequent fall from grace.

Acts 17:24-31 The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him (Himself) from the dead.”
Amen, Amen, Amen

The word Attributes in describing God and or Yah (The Self-Existing One) in this post are being used as a plural noun: attributes
ˈatrəˌbyo͞ot/
1.
a quality or feature regarded as a characteristic or inherent part of someone or something.
“flexibility and mobility are the key attributes of our army”
synonyms: quality, characteristic, trait, feature, element, aspect, property, sign, hallmark, mark, distinction; informalX factor
“The Holy Spirit has all the attributes of a Yah, Yahweh and Yahshua, And they are together one Eternal being”

Galatians 1:15-16 But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood. 1 Peter 4:6 For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God. Amen

Anointed

17311073_1921779351387598_322044098054232996_o
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.

Water Baptism
Luke 3:21-22 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

Primary to ones walk with God is the cleansing baptism by water for the remission of our sins. John who was called by God (My Messenger), Preached of the coming Lord and the Baptism of repentance and the subsequent forgiveness of sins. John taught the people of Judea and all of the region of the Jordan the process, meaning and blessed hope of the coming Lord and Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.

Mark 1:1-5 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.

Led by the Spirit
Galatians 5:16-18 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

After our Baptism by water and receiving Yahshua (Jesus) as our Savior, we begin the long path and process of Sanctification in our search for Holiness and complete acceptance of His Lordship in our daily life. We accomplish this by His undeserved Grace as we grow in Faith in our daily walk with Our God and Father. After many trials and tribulations, we come to the point of Yahweh God’s Preeminence of every area of our lives, completely surrendering to His Lordship. During this process we grow in Knowledge, Wisdom and understanding of His Love and Mercy every step of our path.

Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. Colossians 1:13-20 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by 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 pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

God created everything and everyone for Him and His purpose, In His image and not ours. What we imagine as important and what we honor in the natural world, Is yet dross (Worthless) to our Lord and Savior.

Born of the Spirit
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

When our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) came on the scene He taught that; not only should a man be born again by the water of repentance and forgiveness, But Through the baptism of God’s very own Holy Spirit. Jesus taught we should be born again, not by the flesh as when we first entered this world, but by His Spirit and Power. This Spiritual rebirth would allow us to enter into the kingdom of God and complete our mission and purpose in Christ.

John 3:5-8 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
1 Peter 1:15-16 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Acts 2:1-4 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Walking in Power
Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. Acts 8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

Only in the Power of the Holy Spirit do we edify the body of Christ and are we fully prepared to be His witness, fully operational in our gifts and our assigned offices in the Army Of God. Only through this new birth manifested by His Holy Spirit, can we one day hope to inherit the kingdom of God and our Lord and Savior, Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Luke 1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 9:1-2 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. Luke 10:19-20 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

Living in the gifts
John 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

Every Follower of Christ has gifts of one kind or the other. There are also many diverse ways we operate in these gifts, According to Gods Will and purpose in our lives. God created us for His purpose and use. The gifts He has given us complement us and match our personalities and the individual desires He has given us.

1 Corinthians 12:4-12 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

Yahweh God also has created administrative positions or offices, for the work of the ministry and the edification of the His body. This is a Five Fold Ministry and these offices that make up the core leadership of the Body of Christ. All of these offices are fully functioning and will continue, Until we all are unified in our faith and beliefs in the Body of Christ. Only at the return of Christ is the above statement made complete, the fullness of Christ will not happen until He returns for us, His bride. The Perfection of man to the nature, stature and fullness of CHRIST, will not happen until we are fully quickened into our Spiritual Bodies at His final return.
At the present time there are multiple denominations and Doctrines being taught throughout the world, prior to His coming our path will be made clear. The Gospel of the Spirit of God as promised will be taught throughout the entire world. It’s truth will set the captives free, Allowing all of Gods children to hear the truth and love of Yahweh God. All His children will have a chance to accept the doctrine of the Apostles and Prophets of Christ, And be released from the bondage and corruption of Satan, to the Glory and liberty of His Manifest Sons and Daughters.

Ephesians 4:10-16 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: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Romans 8:18-21 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Amen

Epilogue
1 Corinthians 15:45-57 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord. Amen

Ecclesiastes 8:8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
Amen, Amen, Amen

The Unfruiful Gospel Of Prosperity

img_0189

Jeremiah 22:21-22 I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice. The wind shall eat up all thy pastors, and thy lovers shall go into captivity: surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded for all thy wickedness.

Teaching someone to follow a Doctrine of Prosperity is to set them up for certain failure, And denies us the true peace that God has promised us. When we seek to satisfy our own selfish wants and needs to overcome the trials of this world, we no longer look to God as our strength and Salvation but to other Gods.
If life was made too easy and we didn’t have to labor or toil as Christ and His followers did, how would God prove us worthy of His great and blessed promises? Money pays the the bills and puts a roof over our heads and clothes on our backs, but the Gospel of Prosperity teaches us to focus on financial abundance, thus taking our eyes off the true prize eternal life in Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.

Colossians 1:10-15 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature.
Romans 6:21-23 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Counted Worthy

If we follow the Gospel of Prosperity we lose the great promise God has given us, One of being counted worthy of His Kingdom, Knowledge and Grace .

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
2 Thessalonians 1:4-5 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer.

The Hope of His Glory

Without some Trials and Tribulations we would miss out on the Glory of God, how so you may ask? Tribulation teaches you patience in turn patience creates experience and experience gives you hope. It is hope that builds our faith and the ability to rejoice in His Glory and Grace.

Romans 5:1-5 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
2 Peter 3:17-18 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

No other Gods before Me

Your God can be anything you chose it to be. Your God can be consuming to much food which is the sin of Gluttony, Or it can be a very strong sexual desire which is the sin of Lust, Or maybe overstating your position of importance which is Pride. Following the Gospel of Prosperity can lead to the sin of Greed, And can affect your Children and your Children’s Children for generations to come. This Doctrine will keep you focused on yourself and your desires and away from God and His.

Matthew 6:24 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.
Exodus 20:1-6 And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Amen, Amen, Amen
