Live like Jesus

Do we live like Jesus?  Do we do what He tells us to do or not to do?

If we remain in Him and He is in us, then we will live just as Jesus did.  How do we know how Jesus lived?  How do we know what He commanded us to do?

Read the word of God precious people.  Everything you need to know is right there in the Bible.  The Bible is like a treasure chest full of pearls of wisdom.  God speaks to us through His word.  How can we have a good relationship with Him if we don't take time to get still in His presence and listen to what He has to say?  He speaks to us through His word!  Open the Bible and discover the hidden things in that treasure chest.  His word will change you.  Your mind will be renewed, your thought pattern will be changed.  You will develop a whole new outlook on things.

Enjoy your relationship with the Living God.  He makes you a new creation.

But whoever keeps His word, truly in him the love of God is perfected.  This is how we know we are in Him:
the one who says he remains in Him should walk just as He walked.
•~1 John 2:5-6

The Mystery Revealed

What is this mystery that Paul speaks of in Colossians 1?  The mystery is a blessing to the nations! The mystery is Christ in us!  Christ is our hope of glory.  Is that not wonderful?  Think about it people, come to Jesus, you who do not know Him.  The day you repent, Jesus comes to live inside your heart.  Absolutely wonderful!  Our loving and merciful God.Hallelujah!  Praise our Lord Jesus Christ!  Thank you Abba!   the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to His saints. 27 God wanted to make known to those among the Gentiles the glorious wealth of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.•~Colossians 1:26-27  


Trust in Jesus

As the crowd was pressing in on Jesus to hear God's word, He was standing by Lake Gennesaret.
2 He saw two boats at the edge of the lake; the fishermen had left them and were washing their nets.
3 He got into one of the boats, which belonged to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from the land. Then He sat down and was teaching the crowds from the boat.
4 When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, "Put out into deep water and let down your nets for a catch."
5 "Master," Simon replied, "we've worked hard all night long and caught nothing! But at Your word, I'll let down the nets."
6 When they did this, they caught a great number of fish, and their nets began to tear.
7 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them; they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus' knees and said, "Go away from me, because I'm a sinful man, Lord!"
9 For he and all those with him were amazed at the catch of fish they took,
10 and so were James and John, Zebedee's sons, who were Simon's partners. "Don't be afraid," Jesus told Simon. "From now on you will be catching people!"
11 Then they brought the boats to land, left everything, and followed Him.
•~Luke 5:1-11
Isn't Jesus just wonderful?  Jesus preached and Simon heard what He said and Jesus must have made a huge impression on Simon because when Jesus told them to cast the nets in deeper waters, he obeyed.  He could have just given up hope, because they already tried, but caught nothing.

Because he was obedient, they caught so much fish that their nets almost tore and their boats almost sank!  See how the Lord blesses us when we listen to Him and trust in His word!

Simon was so overwhelmed by Jesus' holiness that he was immediately aware of his own sinfulness.  When we are in the presence of Jesus, we become acutely aware of our sinful nature.  When he comes to dwell in our hearts, He starts cleaning us up.  The Holy Spirit makes us aware of any sin that we must get rid of, anything that grieves Him.

Follow the leading of the still inner voice of God.  When we obey Him, he will bless us so abundantly that we will not be able to contain it!  Best of all, He promises us eternal life!

Let us tell people about this wonderful God of ours, who loved the world so much, that He gave His only begotten Son, so that anyone who believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.  God does not want the evil people to perish, He wants them to repent of their sins and believe and trust in Him.  Let us speak out about this Jesus.  When we obey Him in this, He will bless us to bring many souls to Him and He will clean them up, we just need to tell them!

Let It Be Known!! ~ W.O.R.T.H. Ministry

W.O.R.T.H. Ministry: Let It Be Known!!:

Let It Be Known!!


ARISE PEOPLE OF GOD IN BOLDNESS!  

This morning I was praying for boldness to arise within each of us! Fear
and intimidation of man has silenced and paralyzed many. It has kept
those from speaking what the LORD has revealed. It has kept those from
writing what has been given to release. It has kept those from stepping
out in ministry. It has kept many from exercising their spiritual gifts
and talents.

THIS IS NOT THE HOUR TO SHRINK BACK IN FEAR.  THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO
HIDE AND BE CONTENT WATCHING FROM AFAR.  HOWEVER IT IS THE TIME TO ARISE
TO THE TASK WITH BOLDNESS.

Man will always seek your qualifications and question in what authority
do you have to do these things just like they interrogated Peter and
John:

"And they set the men
in their midst and repeatedly demanded, By what sort of power or by what
kind of authority did [such people as] you do this [healing]"~ Acts 4:7


I love how Peter begins his response: LET IT BE KNOWN......

"Let it be known and understood by all of you, and by the whole house
of Israel, that in the name and through the power and authority of
Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whom you crucified, [but] Whom God raised from
the dead, in Him and by means of Him this man is standing here before
you well and sound in body."
(Acts 4:10)

A level of confidence came forth from Peter "[because he was] filled
with [and controlled by] the Holy Spirit," (v.8) He took his stand and
boldly proclaimed by what authority and power enabled him to be a
conduit.

"Now when they saw the boldness
and unfettered eloquence of Peter and John and perceived that they were
unlearned and untrained in the schools [common men with no educational
advantages], they marveled; and they recognized that they had been with
Jesus."
(Acts 4:13)

Peter was well aware of his inabilities and those around him also knew
that he was incapable of such knowledge, eloquence and power. Yet,
boldness arose within Peter because he knew AUTHORITY AND POWER resided
within Him. He was called to be a witness to Jesus. Peter's relationship
with the LORD was evident as its fruits manifested.  Those who
ridiculed, questioned and tried to disqualify him, MARVELED and RECOGNIZED that they had been with Jesus.!!!

I, myself struggled for many years with fear and intimidation of man.
 It silenced the prophetic voice that was within - causing me to become
disobedient to what the LORD has called me to be, to speak and to do.
 The spirit of fear paralyzed me.  Not only did it affect me but also
those that were appointed to receive what was given me to release
whether in spoken or written words

Consider this: If Peter
would have shrunk back from his mission to testify (Acts 1:8) the 3,000
in Acts 2 would NOT have been added to the Kingdom. If Peter did not
exercise his gift in Acts 3 the crippled man would have remained
crippled and the 2,000 would have not been added either.  If Peter
entertained the voice that questioned his qualification in Acts 4:7, he
would have disqualified himself. If Peter feared man more than obeying
God, he would've adhered to the restrictions placed on him in Acts 4:18 -
silencing the voice within.

"But Peter and John
replied to them, Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to
you and obey you rather than God, you must decide (judge).  But we
[ourselves] cannot help telling what we have seen and heard.
Acts 4:19-20

AND THAT ALSO SHOULD BE OUR RESPONSE!!!!!!!

Remember, man does not qualify you
neither can they disqualify! Step out in faith knowing that you have
been called and equipped by the ONE Who IS AUTHORITY AND POWER!! 
Therefore
Saints arise in boldness! For it is not by might or power BUT the
Spirit of the LORD that resides within you! (Zec. 4:6)


LET IT BE KNOWN THAT IT IS BY THE POWER OF GOD THAT WORKS WITHIN YOU.  TO HIM BE THE GLORY! (Ephesians 2:20-21)

MAY FEAR AND INTIMIDATION LEAVE YOU AND BOLDNESS ARISE IN ITS PLACE!! In Jesus' Name.  Amen!

BE BLESSED......
 



Truth Report - "Is Israel in a covenant relationship with Yahweh?"

God is the One who made the covenant and He will keep His covenant with them (Israel)!  Look what God promises them in His grace....:

Therefore, say to the house of Israel: This is what the Lord God says: It is not for your sake that I will act, house of Israel, but for My holy name, which you profaned among the nations where you went.
23 I will honor the holiness of My great name, which has been profaned among the nations-the name you have profaned among them. The nations will know that I am Yahweh"-the declaration of the Lord God -"when I demonstrate My holiness through you in their sight.
24 "For I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 I will also sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. I will cleanse you from all your impurities and all your idols.
26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
27 I will place My Spirit within you and cause you to follow My statutes and carefully observe My ordinances.
28 Then you will live in the land that I gave your fathers; you will be My people, and I will be your God.
29 I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will summon the grain and make it plentiful, and will not bring famine on you.
30 I will also make the fruit of the trees and the produce of the field plentiful, so that you will no longer experience reproach among the nations on account of famine.
31 "Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good, and you will loathe yourselves for your iniquities and abominations.
32 It is not for your sake that I will act"-the declaration of the Lord God -"let this be known to you. Be ashamed and humiliated because of your ways, house of Israel!
33 "This is what the Lord God says: On the day I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the ruins will be rebuilt.
•~Ezekiel 36:22-33

Bride of Christ

My love has gone down to his garden, to beds of spice, to feed in the gardens and gather lilies.
I am my love's and my love is mine; he feeds among the lilies.
Who is this who shines like the dawn- as beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, awe-inspiring as an army with banners?
Song of Songs 6:2-3,10

All Glory belongs to God

God led me in Judges 7 yesterday.  It's about how God gave the Midianites into the hands of Israel. Gideon was called Jerubbaal because after Gideon destroyed the altar of Baal, they wanted to kill him, but his father said if Baal is a god let him plead for himself and then his father threatened to kill all who wanted to plead Baal's case. So from then on Gideon was called Jerubbaal.

The army with Gideon was 32 000 men, but God only wanted to use 300 men, because God knew they would claim the glory for themselves when He gives them the victory over the Midianites. God wanted the glory for himself! No one else!

God told Gideon to go down to the enemy's camp in the valley below and if he was afraid, then he should take his servant with him and go listen to what they have to say and that he will be greatly encouraged!
So Gideon took his servant Purah and went down to the camp.

The armies of Midian and Amalek and the people of the east had settled in the valley like a swarm of locusts and their camels were like grains of sand on the seashore, too many to count! Wow! Just think how many they were against these 300 men who are going to come against them!

So Gideon heard a Midianite soldier tell his friend about a dream he had. He said in his dream a loaf of barley bread came rolling down into the camp and hit a tent and turned it over and knocked it flat!
See what our God did!...God gave the interpretation of the dream to the Midianite soldier's friend!
The friend said God has given Gideon the Israelite, victory over all the armies united with the Midianites!
When Gideon heard that he knelt down and worshipped God and thanked Him.

Then they went down to the edge of the camp with blazing torches in one hand (covered with clay jars) and rams horns in the other and when they got there they blew on the horns and broke the clay jars and shouted "The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon!".
Each man stood at their position around the camp and blew on their horns! Meanwhile in the camp in the dark, God confused the Midianites so much that they started killing each other! They were in a panic, shouting as they ran.

Then Gideon sent for his other warriors to chase down the fleeing Midianites. They captured the two generals of the Midianites and decapitated them and brought their heads to Gideon.

Then the jealousy started, the other warriors asked Gideon why he did not send for them when he first went out to fight the Midianites. They had a heated argument with Gideon, but I believe God gave Gideon the wisdom to appease their anger. Gideon told them that God gave them victory over the two generals and what he did does not even compare to that. They were no longer angry. Gideon was being very humble.

See, if God had used all of them from the start, they would have ignored the fact that God was the one who gave them the victory. They would have boasted in their own might! They would have stolen God's glory which belongs to Him and Him alone! God knew exactly what He was doing, using only 300 men.

What is the lesson to be learned from this?....be humble and God will use you mightily for HIS glory.

People always want the glory for themselves, but.....
