We are being saved at deeper levels

We are being saved at deeper levels. It is amazing the bondages we get ourselves into because of judging. I judged having nothing to do when I was a child back on the farm. Two weeks ago in praying about the lack of activity in my life the thought came that I had judged that. Amazing how it is like a light being turned on and now I could understand how that had controlled me all these years. I hated doing nothing, yet when I had something to do I went at it like a bull at a gate because I had to get it finished so that I would return to doing nothing instead of taking time, going slower and working at a sensible pace. That is crazy. That is why the Word says judge not. What we judge we become controlled by. You who judge practice the same things, Romans 2:1 I repented and having done so have experienced freedom in that area. Yesterday came to the realization I hated change. Having just received a new computer [the latest model] there are always changes which are natural. We live in a world where change is a fact of life. For one, from the time we are born till we physically die, our bodies are changing daily. There has been many changes in the world over my almost 74 years. I was brought up on a farm where every thing was done by hand with the aid of a horse or two. Today where most westerners have a cell phone, plus the endless list of gadgets that are run by a computer chip, including me. We can choose to still live like people did 50 or so years ago, or go with the flow experiencing all the things that are there for our convenience. Whenever I get a thought especially out walking in the morning praying about every thing and nothing I believe it is a revelation from Father God. As soon as I repented of my judgment against change I remembered many times coming home from school and heading to the bedroom and found Mum had moved us to another bedroom. For the life of me I could not understand why. The house only had 3 bedrooms and at least 7 of us living at home then. Such things affect people in different ways. For me the change in bedrooms locked me into disliking change. I accepted it with gritted teeth. I have spent almost 40 years travelling the word with all the daily changes one experiences going from country to country leaving the comforts of home. I have come to know that any thing we are controlled by in a negative way that causes us to not be at peace is because we have judged it as good or evil, right or wrong. The reason people are not at peace is because they have judged something. Philippians 4:6 Be careful [anxious] for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. As they say no worries. Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:

Living without distraction

I was sent an article called, Earthquakes: God’s Judgement or Not. The following is my reply, I have read what you sent. It is along the lines we have been sharing. If not careful we can get caught up in distractions as you often tell me, including who is or what is causing earthquakes. The simplicity of it all is the individual either is walking in obedience or disobedience. Those who live by hearing Jesus voice and those who don't are living by soul power, called secular humanism. There is another equation in it all which is that Satan was given all the dominion Adam had because Adam gave it to him by his disobedience. The individual can walk free of Satan's dominion as they walk in Christ. Man not being in tune with the Godhead is not in tune with creation and when creation speaks man gets upset because he thinks he has control over creation believing that he is god. There is another big issue which is reconciling the God of the OT and the God of the NT. The first is all about living by law, the other no law just relationship. In the time of the OT the Holy Spirit came upon people, in the NT age the Holy Spirit dwells within. The only way I can make sense of it all is by living in relationship with Father God, through Jesus, by the anointing of the Holy Spirit and listening to Jesus voice and walking in obedience leaving all the past, present and future to Him. That way I go for the ride and enjoy the view knowing I am in the hollow of Jesus hand that is in the hollow of Father God's hand. To sum it all up, it is the difference between living by law or grace. Few know the difference. Out side of relationship man automatically lives by law. That is the trap church has fallen into. To operate all clubs have to live by laws. All the knowledge, wisdom and understanding man needs is in the Tree of Life. That is obtained through relationship with the Godhead, hearing Jesus voice and obeying what He says no matter what. Man living in independence is bound into receiving all knowledge, wisdom and understanding from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. To obtain any of those 3 things carries death. The Word says choose life, Deut 30:19.

A reflection.

While out walking one morning my meditation went like this. At 2 years of age my grandmother [Dad's mum] taught me the song, Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tell me so. At 14 I went to a Bible class camp and knew I needed something but did not know what. A leader prayed I would find what I needed. At 16 I heard a message that said to be a Christian I needed to ask Jesus into my life, the preacher read me John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life and I said yes to Jesus. Not long after I was baptised. Seven years later I knew I had no assurance in my inner being that if I died I was going straight to be with Jesus. Through reading John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: I was totally filled with the love joy and piece of Father God. At 39 after spending 11 years in Children's youth ministry I was challenged as to what place I gave in my life to the Holy Spirit and invited Him to take control. The first thing after that was, I was given a verse out of the Bible, 1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. This brought me to the understanding that to walk in the blessing of the Godhead as a married man I was responsible to make sure my wife was secure. The first message I preached was “How long is it since the Lord spoke to you?” which got me into a lot of trouble. Those I fellowshipped with only believed that God had the Bible written and all one needed to do was read and obey. The second message I preached was about forgiveness and while sharing said this message would go around the world. That was 35 years ago and in that time I have visited 34 countries been out of NZ well over a 100 times sharing with those who desire to know how to forgive and hear Jesus, voice. In addition there are 8 DVD messages, a web site called forgiveit.com plus contact people through Email, Skype and Face Book. The message on forgiveness has gone around the world, first by me taking it, then by video and finally on DVD. There are thousands of copies in many nations including China. My life to day is one of hearing Jesus voice as Jesus said we could [John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me]. Whatever He tells me I seek to walk in obedience and have a living relationship with the Godhead and with people. The 3 most important things are to know how much Father God loves us, deal with unbelief, and deal with all judgments which destroy relationships and be a channel letting the blessing of Father God flow through those who will receive from Him.

Some thoughts to ponder

Some thoughts to ponder. ON ANGER. All who manifest anger is because they are working from law and judging. Living in disobedience to the Word that says, Put away all anger. Colossians 3:8. All means all, in my understanding. GRACE VS LAW. Here is something to chew. Grace would say that all are included before they are excluded, because when Jesus said on the cross it is finished, there was nothing left to do. John 19:30. Law would say, that all are excluded before they are included. You have to do something, you have to measure up, which requires Performance, which is all about judging. [“you have to meet the "standard"] To judge one has to live by law. Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. IN OR OUT. Being included, is because of Calvary. Being excluded can only be because the individual makes the choice not to believe, which is the sin of the world. John 16:9 In order to not to believe, I must first be told what I should believe as Adam was told. IN THE NOW. "Today is the day the Lord has made, I shall be glad and rejoice in it." I like the first word of the Bible, the word: 'In (the beginning)'. God said, "IN the beginning", not 'At the beginning'. The word 'in' is a NOW word, a word that is on-going and not yet finished or completed. 'At' (in this application) is a past tense word, and a word that denotes completion within that time or place. If He had said, 'At the beginning', then the beginning would have been finished, and in the past, because 'at' denotes 'a precise time that was', not 'a precise time which is still on-going and not yet completed'. Even 'the beginning' is 'in God'. Nothing exists outside of Him. Awesome, how that even the first word of the Bible can have such incredible meaning. 'IN'... we exist because of 'IN'. If it had been 'At, (the beginning) then we would not or could not exist. [We are IN Christ, meaning an ongoing, ever present relationship.]

How do you know you are forgiven

A young man’s answer to, “How do you know you are forgiven ?” “The person would have an absence of guilt and fear and be at total peace on the inside.’’ Knowing forgiveness is an experience, it is tangible. Like faith it starts with God and it is the outflow from an encounter. I sent an email telling a man that God's voice is in our thoughts and we need to think and pray through our thoughts. His reply was that he had never heard that ever and it made total sense. 2Corinthians 10:5 I replied as follows: I have heard Jesus voice since 1960 and had not thought about how I hear and convey that to others in a simple way. It was not till a personal friend in England shared one day the sentence, “God's voice is in our thoughts”. The moment he said that I knew it was a sentence that when shared would give a simple key as to how to hear. Even when we read the Bible, unless it becomes a revelation thought, what we read is just words. All dreams, visions or the spoken word through others has to become a revelation thought to create life in me.

Meditation on Grace

I was meditating on the subject of grace this morning while out praying and here is the conclusion. Jesus died for the sin of the world which means man is free from being bound to walking in Satan's kingdom and free to walk in the kingdom of love and light. Satan's kingdom is all about law and condemnation. All it takes is simple repentance, a change of mind, a turning around and accepting what Jesus did and come to a place of belief. A choice between the 2 kingdoms, a choice of which tree one is eating from. The sad part is people do not know what they are missing because the so called church has failed in its mission. Also where are the so called Christians living the life of freedom that people can see. What the world sees of Christianity is church sad to say. Time to get out there and live freedom, true freedom, rejoicing no matter what muck and rubbish those around us are living in and under. Another day here to live the freedom and to do so repent for living in unbelief and hence living a negative confession.

Reply re judging

A reply to a man who believes we are called to judge. The last thing I desire is to go back and forth over the issue of judging. I set the man free to what he believes, which I believe is working by law not relationship by use scripture outside of a relationship. It is clear we will all die because we have the sin of Satan, which is pride, that manifests through putting ourselves up as a judge. Father God put all the sin judgment of man on Jesus, hence we can have a living relationship with him. Yes there are statements we are called to make which are judgments, but I will stress we are only to be used to say such things as a channel of the Godhead. Jesus only said and did what the Father told him, he lived while on earth under total submission as a man to the Godhead. To judge is to condemn and reject. We can all quote verses, if not directed by the Holy Spirit to do so, it is using scripture as law and Jesus is the end of the law for righteousness. If not careful we can all accuse each other when making statements which are judgments. There are verses like Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Here is another verse. Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. How? We condemn by not condemning back. It is like when a person shouts, the other to either whisper or say nothing leaves the shouting person naked. The Word says, Judge not. Matthew 7:1. The key is when judgment has to be made, if I am to be used to make it, in my heart I need to make sure do not judge them. I have all the seeds of destruction in me that are in all mankind, and it is only Father God's grace they have not born that fruit. There is only one sin, disobedience, all the rest is fruit. What causes the sin of disobedience to manifest is PRIDE. Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Yesterday I put on face book, Found myself being annoyed this morning that the bank had sent a letter to our house address and not to the Post Office Box. A thought immediately followed, to be annoyed is because you have judged. Judging is what destroys peace. Peace and judging do not live in the same room. I covet peace hence judging has to go full stop. Thou will keep him in perfect peace who's mind is stayed on Jesus. What would happen when I come across a situation that scripture tells me is off the wall. Simple answer, pray, pray, pray till I know the mind of Christ and only speak what he says, with a heart full of love and compassion. I believe the correct way to deal with a person according to Matthew18:15 to 20 is to go to them and tell them you love them, but that you do not agree with what they are doing, and if they continue doing that, these are the consequences, and offer help them. If they refuse take one or 2 more and all say the same, if they refuse that tell all they fellowship with to go and say the same, if they refuse that, they will leave because they have rejected the love. They have been put out of the church through love, not law. These days this is where I have arrived at, have found it wins more for Christ than where I once walked and believed because before I did and said all thing out of law, now it is out of relationship with the Godhead and my fellow man. Jesus had compassion, one thing I was short on. We all desire love acceptance and forgiveness and in my short lifetime have not found much of that from professing Christians, especially Pentecostals, some from Anglicans which has amazed me. We are all on a journey, only Father God knows the truth of the heart, my prayer is that we all become more Christ like which can be obtained by being filled with the Holy Spirit which is an on going process.

Israel or the Church

Father God raised up a nation called the children of Israel [People who came from the linage of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob] to be a witness to the world of what happens when they listened to His voice and were obedient to what they were told. The end result after many generations was a nation that lost the relationship, lived by laws they had made and became full of pride saying they were the chosen ones and every one else was dammed. After Jesus came, died on the Cross, buried, rose after 3 days and returned to heaven, the nation of Israel was replaced as a nation to be the witness to the world. Father God created a body on earth called the Church to be that witness until the time the church age ends. Sad to say the church has gone the way the nation of Israel went, full of pride proclaiming to be God's chosen and locked away unto themselves especially in western nations. There are nations in the world right now where professing Christians are dying for their faith. How would those in western nations respond to being persecuted even to death as they are? Would the response be as Stephens was as recorded in Acts 7: 59-“ 60 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. The church age is about to come to an end, then Father God will return to the nation of Israel, as recorded in Romans 11:25-27 “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.”

What do I do with what I discern.

Am concerned about all those I know who have stopped going to church and are not gathering in some form as exhorted in Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Leaving church because of seeing the church is not relational and judging that, once making that judgment you cannot move into relationships because it has opened the door to a spirit of independence and rebellion to reign. What do I do with what I discern? Most make a judgement according to what they believe is right or wrong. Unless it is by discernment one sees things taking place that are out of order, it will be by a personal judgement which open’s the door to being under the control of independence and rebellion, leaving no way to come into relationship, hence remain in isolation or go back to being under the situation you have judged. Discern but do not judge. This leaves you free to leave without the baggage of rebellion/control/ independence, and you are free to form new relationships. Summary… Whatever I discern I am not to judge. Rather, Ask Jesus what I am to do in that situation and follow His direction. Any decision made out of my own judgement locks me in to the situation I have judged and it will control me. Many have become like the dry bones as recorded in Ezekiel 37. The key to returning to having the right spirit is always through repentance. Lord I have blown it, forgive me and tell me what I must now do to prove I desire to be an obedient Child.

Ruling spirits

There are 3 ruling spirits running it seems unchecked, either stopping relationships from being formed or destroying relationships. They are, Independence, Control, and rebellion. All the result of no submission in the heart, first to the Godhead, then to those we are meant to relate to. For rebellion to manifest it has to meet rejection. No rejection rebellion is dead in the water. We in western culture live at a time when sex is seen as a recreation and it has brought untold confusion into the family unite. Where there are few or not many stable relationships, that nation has lost its foundation.
