Whose Image

In any society there are elements that pressure people to conform, to not rock the boat, to be like everyone else. It’s a lot like the big hydraulic presses and molds used in manufacturing. Continuous pressure is applied to a piece of metal until a car fender or part of a ship is formed. Conformed. The world and its ways shape and form us into something other than the image of God.

We are commanded not to allow that to happen to us as Believers, but to oppose it. Not by being lawless. But by following much higher laws than those of men. Being conformed to the image of Christ by following the Word of God, with the help of the Holy Spirit. No one can make you conform, you must choose to. It might cost your life, but the decision is yours. We choose to conform.

It is up to us what we let form us. The way we choose what we let form us is by choosing what we think on. The Bible says that as a man thinks in his heart is how and what he is. Not in the sense of actuality or attainment – in respect to Judgment. That’s what all things relate to, the coming Judgment. What you said you are compared to what God said you were to be.

This is no mystery, it’s all over the Bible. God has not forgotten and He was not kidding when He said that all people will be Judged. Though there are no doubt many levels to be judged on, the very first level is words. It is our words that will declare our guilt or innocence, and His Word that will Judge us. The Bible says both of these things.

Thoughts are transforming. What are words. Words are thought containers, capsules of thought. Words and thoughts are not mental or physical, they are spiritual. Jesus said my words are spirit and they are life. Your words contain more power more authority in your life than anyone’s. Including God’s. Because your free will is sovereign. God made you that way. Everything that could possibly be done to make sure every man makes it to Heaven has already been done – on God’s part. Each man must choose for himself to enter in, or not.

He will not make you surrender to Him, you must do it of your own free will. God’s thoughts are expressed and revealed in His creation. All of creation came into existence through His words. All the thoughts we have now are replaced with other thoughts. If words contain thoughts and bring these other thoughts to you. Whose words should shape and form the real you, the inside you. The one that will be Judged. The hidden man of the heart. Keep His Word, watch your words.

Peace

You can tell who is leading you by what you’re being led by. One of the strongest indicators of God’s presence is peace. It is also one of the ways the Lord leads us. If Jesus is your Lord you don’t make decisions on your own, you involve Him. And you’re glad to do it. It might take some practice, so you better get to it. Including Him in the affairs of your life will always result in Him leading you. He will tell you what to do, if you ask Him.

If you know something is coming up, pray to the Father from your heart about it – in Jesus name. That’s how we’re told to pray. Then over the next few days check your spirit to see if you have peace inside yourself about doing it. If you don’t have peace in your spirit about doing it – don’t do it. That’s how you submit to His Lordship. Scripture says He will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him.

To yield to means to act on the urging or the prompting of something. The assembly of believers is a Body, it’s just like a Family. We are all supposed to maintain the Unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. That’s how the Body operates. We get in the Spirit together, then peace decides what stays or what goes. This peace comes only from the Holy Spirit, not from our mind. All the input to our mind comes from this world. We can yield to the feelings and thoughts of our soul, or we can yield to the Holy Spirit and to His Peace in our spirit, but we can’t do both.

The Humanism that dominates Western Society believes itself to live in a world without God, but they are sorely mistaken. We’ve never seen a world without God. There is no Light in a world without God – for He is the Light. That’s not just a phrase it’s the Truth. There is no peace in a world without Him, for He is our peace, and all real peace comes from Him. You don’t have to imagine a world without God, one already exists. It’s called Hell. To live in a constantly terrified state is a part of simply existing in Hell, it is a place of continual panic. It is a place with no love and no peace.

There is a peace you can get from the world, but it is not the peace that comes only from God. They are as different as a hard floor on a cold night is from a soft bed full of warmth and comfort. You can manufacture the worldly peace just by getting yourself to calm down. Getting your mind on something else, listening to ethereal music, having a drink or a cigarette. But it does not penetrate, and it does not last. It’s not the same.

You are a supernatural being who can tap into the most powerful supernatural force in the universe – the help of the Holy Spirit. He will comfort you in times of distress, He’ll strengthen you in times of weakness. You can call on Him and He will help you . . . if you will. Or, you can have your own way. God’s peace passes all understanding because it is not mental, it is Spiritual. Just like the problems, all of them are spiritual. If you’re going to make it in these Last Days you have to get ahold of the only peace that penetrates, the only peace that lasts.

One of the main things the enemy comes to take away is your peace. But the peace itself never diminishes, it does not weaken. It stretches into eternity, and it is either in you or it is not. There will be times when you will have to fight off all the pressures coming at you, just to keep your peace. It is that valuable. Stay out of all the strife of this life. Worship God from the core of your being, get in the Spirit and the peace of God will guard your heart and mind. When the Bible says to let the peace of God rule in your heart, that’s what it means. Peace to you and your house.

Destiny

Destiny is not you deciding what you want to do with your life and leaving God to work it out. That would put you at the center and make God your servant, as though He were here to promote your agenda or bring your plan to pass. Destiny is not for you to decide, it’s for you to Discover – what God has planned for your life. And here’s the thing, if you don’t want to know, He won’t tell you. The slightest bit of Unwillingness will keep you from hearing His voice.

Even as a Christian, if you don’t believe Him, don’t trust Him, or don’t want to know – your greatest moments of clarity will seem distant and foggy. You reap what you sow, remember. God is not mocked is the first part of that verse. The way we live and act and speak mocks God. We carry on as though He doesn’t exist, or as though He’s very weak – like some senile benevolent old grandfather in Heaven, who doesn’t know what’s going on in our lives. Yet the Bible tells us that the very hairs of our head are all numbered.

Astronomers tell us that there are over one hundred billion galaxies in the universe, and that there are more than a hundred billion stars in our galaxy alone. Yet God knows the stars by name – that’s what the Scripture says! Isn’t that amazing. You know what the word Universe means? One spoken sentence. I can’t say that without smiling – Look at God! Praise His Holy Name! That’s how He did it – He speaks things into existence. Go check it out, it’s in the Bible. Everything He created in the Book of Genesis says God Said – and it was, God Said – and it was, God Said – and it was! The reason God wants you to live by Faith is because He lives by Faith. It’s the way He does things.

He considers something within Himself – then speaks it into existence, bam! We’ll just call this the Big Bam – as opposed to the other one, which they can’t explain at all. Since they have no idea why it banged, how it banged, or what it was doing before it banged – it just banged. Those paths are very intentionally avoided by the people who cannot explain their childish position, because to take one step on any of them would lead directly to design or purpose. Which can only come from some sort of Intelligence, and is just another word for . . god.

Well they didn’t and don’t want to admit that, so they got to bangin’. So there was nothing there, then it suddenly turned into something. No, it turned into everything. That takes a lot more faith than I got. God is easy to believe, and easy to believe in. The bang never made a sound, it’s nothing but a bunch of rebellious men who don’t want God to exist – having a tantrum. Don’t buy into it – there’s nothing there.

The christianity of most who believe themselves to be Christian isn’t working for them because they haven’t been Discipled. I didn’t command it, Jesus did. It is a getting up under someone who has what you don’t – so you can get it from them. If they were a vessel full of liquid, and you the empty vessel needing to be filled, then the pipeline, the conduit, the funnel connecting the 2 of you would be Obedience. Not obedience in some random arbitrary manner – but obedience to God’s Word. Discipleship is all about accountability. The accountability of keeping your word, which was given in the form of a promise, when you made that promise to Change. Which is all that Repentance is – a promise to change. You can’t do it on your own, it is quite impossible. You need help, a lot of help, and a large part of the help God has sent is Discipleship.

Everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to change – and be made into the image of Christ. If you haven’t at least begun the process of Salvation, which is the name of this being changed – you won’t make it to Heaven. It is not accomplished with a prayer anymore than your 1st year on the job ended by filling out the paperwork to get hired, no – that was all done beforehand. If you’re in the Clergy, no use quoting sola fide – Faith is an act not a thought. And yes it very much is Faith in Christ and His completed work on the Cross, but you have a part in response to that. Most who call themselves christians have very intentionally, not done their part. Some are just ignorant due to a gross shortage of Teachers in the Body of Christ. Not because they haven’t been Called – because few have answered the Call. From Genesis to Revelation, God ties all of your Love for Him and all of your Belief in Him to one thing . . . Obedience.

Now in doing our part, God has given all of us the ability to become Hungry, Willing or Obedient – so we can be Discipled. I in fact call these the 3 doorways to Discipleship, and teach my Disciples to look for one of these doorways being open as a confirmation of who they are to disciple. I’m not an Evangelist so I don’t take my guys out to the street corner and look for followers, and I tell them not to do that because that’s not the Call, or the Anointing that backs up that Call – on my life. And in ministering the real Biblical Christianity you only want to do what you’re Anointed to do. Which means what God has given you Power to do, because He’s Called you to do it. The thing so many won’t take the time to do, is to find out what God has Called them to do. They’re too busy doing what they’ve called themselves to do, or what someone else thought was a good idea. But they never asked God what He has for them.

There are many good books and many good movies, but most of the books that have ever been written – shouldn’t have been. It’s the same with movies, songs, restaurants, even Ministry. I’d say on average probably the top ten per cent in any field are doing something God put in their heart, whether they knew it or not. Which means in every area of human endeavor most of the people in the earth, including most of the people in the church, are not doing anything God told them to do. Which is where the Blessing is at – and the only place His Blessing is at. Remember Blessing means empowered to Prosper, not claiming your own success. This real tangible power comes from Him, not from the pretend of positive confession.

If you are not empowered by Him, you are not Blessed. It’s not competition that makes room for you, it’s your Gift that makes room for you. Instead of living in His Blessing people are just doing something, anything, to keep themselves busy, so they don’t go crazy. Busy making a living so they can feed themselves and pay their bills while waiting for Death to finally catch up with them. That’s why so many people are so frustrated. Well, that’s not what God calls life. Jesus came to deliver us from all that mundane, dreary, unrewarding, unfulfilling, frustrating existence that makes up our life in our town. He’s got something much better, for everybody on the planet. He said if we’ll follow Him (if we’re willing and obedient), we’ll eat, live, drive – the Best of the Land. All the time, every day.

In fact, the greek word for His kind of Life is Zoe. The God kind of Life, the uncreated life. It’s one of the main things Christ came to do. To change us from created to begotten – from creatures to Sons. It would be like a man changing a painting or statue (something he created) into another man (something he didn’t create but could only beget). C.S. Lewis explains this in Mere Christianity – you can only beget something of your own kind.

To beget is to give birth to something of the same kind as yourself. If you’ll get up under the Authority with Anointing that God has called you to, and stay there – the Gift that’s in you will come up out of you. It will. Follow someone who’s Christianity is working for them. Until you come into Ministry, you only have as much Anointing [and Authority] as that you are submitted to. That’s why most have none – they’re not submitted to any. That’s how it works. The Gifts, your Calling, the Office of Ministry is birthed while you’re being changed under the Anointing. Apostles and Prophets birth Ministry, we see that all throughout the Scripture.

You don’t have to be under us, but you have to be submitted somewhere to a Minister with the Anointing. We’re not selling anything to anyone or trying to get any to join us, much of what we say will repel the religion right out of you – and make the half committed partially obedient undercover christian downright angry. We’re telling the whole world including the christian world that they need to get Discipled. Not because we said so – Jesus said so. He commanded it! That’s why we have links on our website to the websites of other 5 Fold Ministries that walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, that live in the miraculous. It doesn’t matter if you like them or approve of them – they have God’s Approval! Don’t be arrogant, humble yourself. You don’t give out the Anointing, you may very well not have any – but you can get some. If you’ll let God have His Way, if you’ll let Him be God. This is not a Democracy – it’s a Kingdom, remember.

Jesus doesn’t want your vote, He is not running for office. He’s not coming back to be King, He is King already! He’s just coming back. The question is is He your King. I didn’t say is He your Savior, I said is He your King. If He is then all your Issues are settled, and you just do what He says. Everybody wants to be Saved from Death and Hell and the Punishment for sin, but nobody wants to do what they’re told. Only doers of the Word get Blessed, they’re the only ones who will make it. You can be one, you can – that’s what Discipleship does – makes you a doer, not just a hearer of the Word. So he can be your King, and when He comes back, you won’t run from Him . . . you’ll run to Him. That’s the road you must go down, making Jesus your King – so God can make you a son.

Spirit Led

An idea is not Direction. A feeling is not a Leading. The Holy Spirit doesn’t Lead you with feelings. When the Spirit leads you it’s with an unction, a quickening – in your spirit, not your thought life. That running conversation in your head – that is your thought life. It is completely different from the Voice of the Spirit, who speaks to you in your spirit not your head. If you are taking direction from your Head – you’re being Head Led. That is not God. The first thing you have to get right is the geography of the Inner Man, which is your Soul and your Spirit. They are different in themselves and  they do different things.

Your spirit is your conscience, the part of you that knows right from wrong, and good from evil. It is the part of each one of us that is most like God, for the Bible tells us that God is Spirit. We are made in His Image. You don’t have a spirit, you are a spirit – just like God. It’s important to be very clear about this difference between soul and spirit. They are both part of your Inner Man but they are not the same thing.

There are completely different words for soul and spirit throughout the entire Bible, in both Hebrew and Greek. There are completely different words in English as well, we’ve simply been trained for centuries to ignore the differences. It has cost the church dearly. Your soul is made up of your mind, will and emotions. None of them are Saved, they must be renewed daily with the Word. You can change your mind any time you choose to because you have free will. It is the way God made you. God gave us emotions, He has them Himself. But they are never supposed to Lead us.

The brain is the organ of expression of the Soul and is directly tied to all the places where you emote, relate and interact with the physical world. It is the place they are physically managed from – but your brain is not your Mind. Your mind is part of your soul, which is part of the Spirit Realm. Your mind in the spiritual realm expresses itself through the organ of your brain in the physical realm. You could remove your brain and it would not affect your mind at all. You would simply be unable to express yourself in the physical world. In a very real sense your soul would be your output if you thought of it in computer terms. Well your computer isn’t broke just because your monitor isn’t working.

Your spirit is not seated or centered in your head, it is seated in your bowels. Which is your stomach along with the intestines, and are the organ of  absorption. The place where the very substance that allows you to keep living is taken into your Body. That’s why the Bible says to “Guard your Heart (your spirit) with all diligence, for out of it proceed the Issues of Life.” Another word for your spirit is what many of us in Ministry call your seemer. As it is the place where things seem right or seem wrong. It is also called your knower, because it is where you Know all things.

If you yield to your feelings, to your thoughts, or to your wants – you will not walk in the Spirit. What you yield to determines the kind of Fruit you produce. If you can say I think, I feel or I want – you’re being soulical. Which is not being spiritual. You think inside your head (your thinker) and you know in your Spirit (your knower). That is actually the best way to describe most of the Leading that comes from the Holy Spirit most of the time – it is a Knowing.

But when you’re looking (or listening) inside yourself, don’t aim at your head – aim at your belly. It takes a little practice to get good at, but anybody who is Willing to know His Will can get good at it. Don’t fool yourself, everyone is being led by spirits. Only those who are Led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. Get in the Spirit first thing in the morning, and Be getting back in the Spirit throughout the rest of your day. Then you’ll stay in and be led by, the Spirit of God.

You Don’t Die

You can glorify God with how you live, and you can glorify God with how you leave. Meaning with how you die. Time passes, things change, no one you know is gonna be around forever – they will die. All of them. You are dying right now, and you will die completely to this life when you pass away. Death is an important part of the process of going back to God. Death is not Termination. People of the world think that way. Believers are not allowed to. Death is not the End – Death is Transition. From this life to the next. The truth is, you don’t Die – your body dies. Your body is not you, it’s just your shell. I didn’t say that – the Bible does.

The Bible tells us that the fear of death makes you subject to bondage. It’s like being in Jail. We’re told that Jesus delivered us from every bit of that. The sin is not when fear and worries come – the sin is when we hold onto them. Christians love to talk about how Jesus died but don’t like to talk about what He did when He died. He went to Hell. The Bible is not shy about it – don’t you be. Talk about what the Bible talks about, and do it unabashedly. Jesus did not Save you from sin and death so you could go back to living for yourself, or saying whatever you want to say – He saved you for Himself.

There are many religions in the world, and not a single one has a messiah who died for his followers, then came back from the dead to bring them with him. Christianity is not a religion it is a Faith, and the only Faith on earth. God requires this Faith of every member to be a true believer. This faith is not in just anything – it’s Faith in Christ. The risen Lord of Glory. If Jesus was not raised from the dead – you should not read your Bible. If Jesus was not raised from the dead – you should not go to Church. If Jesus was not raised from the dead – there is no Salvation.

In dying Jesus conquered death. He died so we wouldn’t have to, not the way the world means it. Lucifer is the purveyor and promoter of the fear of death.  He’s the same one who opposes the God kind of Life that Jesus bought for you and me – when He defeated death. Another name of the enemy is the Deceiver, and he wants to block your receiver . . . from hearing the Truth. This Truth will set you free from the fear of death. But you’ll have to dig deep down inside just to want to be free, from the wrong thinking you’ve known all of your life. It is in our fallen nature to prefer the familiarity of bondage to the uncertainty of faith. Faith requires effort, bondage is easy.

This fear of Death among men is overwhelming. It is the primary opposing force in the hearts and minds of all men – to Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.  Fear stops us from believing the Resurrection because we believe in death so much more. We must get over this fear of death or we cannot die in Faith. We must not act shocked when people die – that’s what the Heathen does. For the unbeliever this life is all there is. Not so for the Believer. For us, this life is the illusion and the mistake. The next life, the Eternal life, is the whole reason we’re here. Stay strong in your Faith everyday so when it’s time to go – you’ll leave in Faith. That’s what pleases the Master. Living by faith, then leaving in faith.

True Faith

Faith is more powerful than any Disease. Faith is more powerful than the tallest tidal wave, or any force of nature. Faith is more powerful than a thousand hydrogen bombs going off at once, one of which is more powerful than an atomic bomb. Only true faith is like this. It really is, and you must see it this way, or you won’t see Faith properly.

The Bible says God created the entire Universe by Faith. It’s how He’s going to create the next one. Faith is powerful stuff and you and I only need a drop of it. Jesus said you could move mountains with a mustard seed amount of Faith. Well if you’ve ever seen a mustard seed you could fit a dozen of them into most drops.

Now there is an element of Faith that is like a tool, and you need to use the right tool for the job. Meaning, if you need Healing then you have to Feed on the dozens of Scriptures that speak of and promise Healing, and so on – for every different need. Financial, physical, wisdom and insight, strength and strategies. The Bible covers all of it. The way to get healed is the same way you got saved, by Faith.

Your salvation is based on Scripture, these other Scriptures are for every one of us just as much as the ones that save are for us. People just haven’t been trained in them. The Bible itself tells us that we are to be Trained in and with the Scripture. You know who does that in the Body – Teachers. They are the ones God has Called to do it. I’m teaching you right now, that’s my part. Your part is to stay Teachable. Because the tendency of our flesh is to get offended, which makes us unteachable.

So we saw that there is an element of Faith that is like a tool, but there is more than that. Faith is also a Relationship. God is in the Faith that He gives us, just like He is in His Word. Don’t try to wrap your head around all that, listen in your spirit. That is the only way you will ever get Spiritual Things. Spiritual is not Intellectual, your spirit is above your Intellect. It is in your spirit that “you know all things“, right. That’s what the Bible says.

In your spirit is where you recognize Truth, that’s what that verse means. We read in some ancient Hebrew extrabiblical texts that the Devil took some things that God had showed the Archangels, and tried to use it apart from God and [by doing so] used it against God. Whether we believe that or not, that is exactly how most christians try to use what they call their faith – and it is a Failure. They try to use their faith without God and because it’s for their own purposes, they are using it against Him. Faith is not a cold selfish impersonal intellectual thing like that.

Modern believers use their faith like it’s some sort of control over God. Like they’re going to control Him into doing what they want. As though He is a genie that will grant them 3 wishes. Faith is not control, Faith is trust. You have to trust Him, and trust that He will do what He said. What did He say. If you don’t know you need to go find out or wait until He does say. It all starts with what He said.

We saw that Faith is also a relationship, and that God is in the Faith that He gives us. He comes with it. You cannot just take Faith and go do whatever you want with it. It is only to do what He tells you. You can’t just do it by faith unless He told you to do it. If He did not tell you, you won’t have Faith. You will just be pretending, and it won’t happen. Real Faith brings real results, fake faith brings no results. That’s why so many have no results. Faith doesn’t begin with Miracles, Faith begins with Hearing from God. That’s why you cannot separate Faith from being Led by the Spirit. His Word and His Spirit are the two main ways we Hear from God as Individuals.

Faith is our assignment from God and He will not do it for us. If our faith fails we will not make it to Heaven. Grace is an assignment God has given Himself, and we cannot give ourself grace for Him. Not a single person is in Hell because of a lack of grace. They either lacked the faith to get saved or had their own personal faith in the wrong things. To not do anything to build your faith, then presume you have strong faith is not faith. It is deception and it is a sin.

We all have a life and most of us want to hold onto the life we have. God does not want that, He wants us to trade the life we have for the life He has for us. Doing this trade in the sense of walking it out is called faith. Faith is the only way to get that life, there is no other way. Most who believe in the God of the Bible do not want Him to apply the Bible to their life, they only want Him to help them with the life they already have. He will never do that. If we saw God we would never say that, we wouldn’t even think it.

Only those with faith will see Him. Faith is not having a philosophy and faith is not being religious. It is not either of those things at all. If you don’t already know the something other that faith is as God defines it and as God requires it, then for you what you call faith is one of those two, and it will never work. Faith is not agreement and faith is not another word for your belief system, or any belief system.

You have heard the word used that way and are very familiar with it, because the world uses it that way. But the world and the Bible are completely at odds and always have been. Faith is something spiritual, and like all things spiritual it does manifest in the physical. But the manifestation is not faith, it is the result of faith. True faith. The fake faith spoken of in the Bible doesn’t manifest anything, that’s why so many fall away from it. Faith is a living trust in the God you know. Every word is significant.

Faith begins where the Will of God is known. If you don’t know God’s Will for a thing, you won’t have Faith for that thing. Faith is not mental, it is spiritual – and it’s Powerful. Faith is like a Tool, but it’s also a Relationship. You cannot separate Faith from being Led by the Spirit. They go together. You could pray for [someone else’s] Healing from Scripture alone, but you would be forgetting the relationship part. I’ll give you one example of the many miracles available to anyone, that happen in our Ministry regularly. For years.

As the head of an international ministry, one of my tasks is to send 2 of our Preachers out at a time to Africa to minister at our 7 Churches there, in the Rift Valley of Kenya. Usually twice a year. I could have told them to lay hands on the people and pray for their Healing ahead of time, but I did not. Not until our 2nd trip out this particular year, AFTER I heard in my spirit from the Lord that He wanted us to do it. I had Pastor Anthony who oversees our International Ministries contact them while they were out there and give them my Instructions.

Our men out there did What the Authority told them When they were told – and Bam! Multiple instant miraculous Healings. Huge growths coming out of women’s stomachs disappeared in seconds! Look at God! We do What God tells us When He tells us – and we get results every time. You do what You want when You want, you’ll get nothing, and it will hurt your faith. Every time.

Many people think to themselves if I can’t understand this then I cannot be alright. I have to figure out what’s going on or how I’m gonna come out of this. No you don’t. That’s where faith comes in. You do not have to figure it all out to stay in faith and you do not have to understand to stay in faith. You just have to stay in faith. Trust in God allows us to rest before we know how things are going to turn out. Faith is a rest. In the midst of trials persecution and chaos all around, we can be in perfect peace. Because our trust is not in the troubles, our trust is in God. This trusting in God in the midst of the unknown is Faith.

Don’t despair, it’s not too late, as long as we’re willing to Change. We don’t want you to be impressed with our faith. This should inspire you to build your own faith. God will do these things through anyone who does what He says. So here’s what I want you to know about Faith. Faith is a Power given in Measure by the person of God to the person who follows God to do Only what He says. If you’ll take all that I’ve said about Faith here and apply it, it will start working for you. To bring about God’s Will in the earth and in your life. His Word guarantees it.

Casting Down Imaginations

Angel

You do not have the right to say you belong to Jesus but you don’t belong to the Church. The true Church is the Body of Christ. You have to get Fed somewhere, and you don’t get to pick and choose. Don’t treat His Body like it’s some sort of buffet or supermarket, it’s not like that. Jesus is a King. Not a commodity.

If you’re under the King you’re not part of a democracy, you’re part of His Kingdom. He has already ordained the people and places where His Body gets fed in His Kingdom. The various parts are where He puts them, not where they put themselves. This is a real living Body, not some children’s game.

His Spirit will lead you to, and confirm who and where you’re supposed to be joined, but you have to learn how to listen. Everybody has to learn. Most people refuse to, including most believers – they don’t want to. They’d rather have it their way, not do what He say. It’s too difficult . . . for their Flesh.

God has certain things He will only get to you through Ministers in the 5 different Offices of ministry. People chosen by Him. They are there expressly for the reason and purpose of Authority, which you must get up under. Your Flesh will avoid this at all costs. It hates being told what to do. If you don’t kill your Flesh, it will kill you.

This hatred of authority and the rebellious nature that birthed it, came with the Fall of Man. Authority is the very thing that was rebelled against, and the thing that must be submitted to. The fallen nature of our Flesh will not do it, it is Incapable. That’s what the Cross is for, to crucify your Flesh. Jesus said to carry it. It does burn your carnality, but you can burn now . . . or burn later.

The Bible speaks of Imaginations that exalt themselves above the knowledge of God. We are commanded to cast them down. Well where are these Imaginations at. They’re not just in demons and the atmosphere, they’re in everything that is Fallen. These wrong hateful rebellious Imaginations are in us.

When we Fell we became like the one who made us Fall. Accepting what Christ did changes the core part of our Inside, but it doesn’t change us entirely. That gets done through a process of belief and obedience called Faith. Which is our personal job to walk out. Not something to agree with.

It is entirely our job to identify these wrong heart postures and wrong ways of thinking within ourselves. No one else will or can possibly do it for you. God set it up that way. We have to choose. Choose to believe, choose to read the Bible, choose to obey it and therefore Him. Choose to stay. He only wants those who stay.

Choose to submit ourselves to His Will every day. Which is expressed through His Word, His Spirit and His Ministers. And they all agree. You know how we can tell – they all say the same things. If we all don’t learn to say the same things, it’s because we don’t Agree. We wanted something more than we wanted Him. We were all born into disagreement, we must put ourselves into Agreement – through Submission. There is not some other way.
