The 2 Tablets

Establishing people in the Heart of God in the Principles of the Kingdom in Worship, Sonship and Maturity.

8/13

In Exodus 20 God gave command as to the specific guidelines of living the God life. We are today living in a world of ungodliness and immorality and I am hearing the cries and groaning for righteousness and truth. The product of our neighborhoods is because of the standards of Godliness being lowered. Men’s heart are failing for fear because the word of faith is no longer being preached throughout the churches, we are at war among ourselves, seems like God do not care or is out on vacation.  Let me tell you, God is not asleep neither is he on vacation, he is right on time, though we may frustrate the grace of God at times, it is not God who is changing but us, while the few, the remnant, the ones who is after the heart of God, the Moses company, who has journeyed up to the mountain top, the place where God shows up in a pillar of fire, the closet of prayer, the place of study and fasting and seeking God, while this company of over comers who has encountered God in the realm of fire, which at the time had to remove their shoes in order for them to stand before the God of fire, you see, the shoes was a man made vessel, a man made program, manmade, which was used to stand on, to walk on, to go into battle with, this company of over comers have learned how to take their shoes off, you see, in our daily walk, we use our man made apparel and it just happens that we pick up the dust and filth which is hid from us but is there, we take off our shoes when we get home to our house because we are conscious that we might have stepped on something unclean.
        When the Moses company who has learned how to enter into the presence of God, by taking off their shoes they have also experienced and continue the fire on the burning bush. In the new testament we were told to take off our shoes in a different way, we were told by Jesus, if any man would follow after me, he must first deny himself, then take up his cross and then follow after me. Paul said in Colossians that we must put off the old man which is after the flesh and to put on the new which is after Christ. This company of people from different nations and tongues who have experienced the fire of God, have been dealt with in measure and still being dealt with, they who have journeyed to the backside of the desert and have been given the two tablets of God, 2 depicts a witness, a testimony. On the other hand the number 2 also represents disagreement and opposition.  Notice that Moses brought the tablets down from the mountain in his hands, it takes the hands to plant, and the same hand water and the same hand reap. It is the hand that gathers food; the hand feeds the body, the same hand washes and protect the body.
The hand represents the 5 fold ministry, the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers.
        It also represents the 5 smooth stones which David took from the brook, notice that the stones were all smooth, meaning that they had an experience with water, they were not originally smooth but because of the crashing and beating, the continual cutting. If we pay attention to what David did it may just open our eyes. David took the 5 stones and put them in one bag, Davis began to run toward Goliath with his sling in his hand, his fingers holding on to the sling, at that time, none of the fingers was more important than the other, they all became one. He dipped into the bag and pulled out one of the stones, there is no record of what number or color the stone was but there is a record of killing the giant.
This company of believers heard from God and has journeyed from the heart of God and what a surprise, Moses found his family, his brother, his brethren and all the people having a party, thinking that they were deserted by the holy ghost, I meant Moses.

So because we are now under grace, we have learned very well, how to manipulate our way through the religious system.
But here is the thing, the people do not want to hear what Moses had to say, people do not want to hear what the 5 fold ministry has to say. Because they are speaking out a Word from the heart of God that is uncompromising, they are speaking out about sin. People do not want to hear about the word that was written on the 2 tablet which is being delivered to them through the hand ministry, the 5 fold, they are content hearing that it’s ok, we all make mistakes. So we repeat our sin and continually sin and it’s ok. Well, it’s not ok. He said that it is time to arise and shake off the dust that we have gathered. God is calling a people to be a light in a dark place, the Word of the tablets is spirit and life. Paul said “that I may know him” We can only know him through the tablet that is given through the hand which got them from the God who resides in the mountain which is in the back side of the wilderness which answered by fire.

The Heart of a Father By Dr. Pepe Ramnath

The Heart of a Father

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 6 And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”
Malachi 4:5-6

The last prophet of the Old Testament or Old Covenant was Malachi. The word of the lord came to him before the New Testament or the New Covenant was established. God spoke for the last time through the mouth piece of Malachi and shut up the heavens for the next four hundred years. It was within these four hundred years that the great philosophers showed up.

A love for the manipulation of words was enjoyed. The Greek philosophers would gather on the steps of their courtyards and compete with each other with words of depth and great revelation concerning the matter of life and the sciences. The words of these men were documented and are used today in our Universities to educate the future generation. We must note, however, that though these saying were very convincing and eloquent they were not the words of the God. For these words were the voices of the souls of mankind during the absence of the voice of God.

We must see the spirit of lawlessness working its way into the hearts of fathers and sons to create the genesis of a new generation, a fatherless generation. Today the western world is fascinated by the wisdom of the Greeks, Romans and the east. The enemy has forced this new culture of words into our schools to make sure the next generation will become wise of itself but rootless in its lifestyle. The disrespect for the ancient or elders are more prevalent in the times we live. The voices of the fathers are silently but noticeably fading away into a forest of no return. But God has a plan and his plan for the restoration of the voices of the fathers will arise and preserve the next generation. God clearly revealed his heart as a Father to this present fatherless generation through the last prophet of the old covenant.

When God sent his last prophet he spoke the last words of God in preparation for one of the most powerful generation to come. We must now focus, concentrate and meditate on these last words because it will be the only set of words that will lead us to His voice again. As we mediate on the last words of the Prophet Malachi God seems to place a focus on a preparation period of the coming of the messiah. The last two verses that the prophet Malachi spoke contains a promise, a blessing, and a threat of a curse.

At the feast of Passover millions of the Jewish people still set the table with an extra plate and a glass of wine in expectation of the prophet Elijah. They took this prophecy literally and seriously. I often wonder, how serious is the church in response to these last words of the prophet Malachi. Do we have a table set with food and drinks for Elijah when he comes or are we rejecting Elijah every time he shows up at our doorsteps?

The human heart is a very interesting organ that is often called the engine of life. It operates exactly like a pump. The main function of the heart is to take blood and pump it into the entire body so that the body can receive life. The heart is about the size of your fist, muscular and pumps blood throughout the body every day. Oxygen-poor blood enters the right atrium of the heart through veins called the inferior vena cava and the superior vena cava. The blood that comes into the heart is oxygen poor because it has been previously used by the body. The heart directs the old blood to the proper organs (lungs) for re-oxygenation causing the old blood to have life again. The old blood is pumped into the right ventricle, then through the pulmonary artery to the lungs, where the blood is enriched with oxygen and loses carbon dioxide that causes it to be old or ineffective. The oxygen-rich (oxygenated) blood is then carried back to the left atrium of the heart via the pulmonary vein. The blood is then pumped to the left ventricle then through the aorta and to the rest of the body. This cycle is then repeated over and over again to maintain the life of the body. The heart pumps about 2,000 gallons which is 7,600 liters of blood and beats about 100,000 a day times

http://www.med.yale.edu/intmed/cardio/echo_atlas/references/heart_anatomy.html

The above illustration is to help you understand the function of the human heart because our spiritual heart operates similarly. The heart of a father beats to take the used up and abused sons of this world and changed them into oxygen fill sons of God. By the time a son passes through the heart of a father he exits as a revitalized, oxygenated and energized son. A son that passes through the heart of a father will always give life to the entire body. He may become tired, diluted and polluted from giving life to the body but as long as he is a son he can pass through the heart of his father again and again. Can you imagine now a son without the heart of a father?

A son who does not know the heart of his father will eventually pollute the body that he is supposed to give life to. It is of great importance that the Pastor of a church has a spiritual father for true life to flow through the arteries of each believer just as much as the believers have him as their father.

A son who does not know the heart of his father will eventually pollute the body.

God could have chosen anyone of the great prophets to prepare the way of the coming of his son, Jesus, but he chose Elijah. He chose Elijah because he was the prophet that fathered Elisha and transferred a double portion upon him. A double portion was only given to a biological son. Elisha was not Elijah’s biological son but through his ability to father Elisha properly the requirements were met and the transfer took place. This did not only pleased God but it is the desire of God to transfer his love to all of humanity in the form of Abba, Father. Elijah had the heart of God, the Father and God; the Father wanted all of mankind to become His sons. This is why Jesus said you will do greater works, because this is the power of double portion father to son blessings.

John the Baptist came in the spirit and power of Elijah to transfer the blessings of the forefathers of the faith from the old covenant to the new covenant. John was the bridge where the vehicles of all the generational blessings and promises of the old covenant drove over to the cities of the new covenant.

Luke 1:17 “17He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, 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.”
(Underlined and Italicized by author)

This scripture clearly tells us why John will come in the spirit and power of Elijah. John, the Baptist, came in the spirit and power of Elijah so that God can turn the hearts of the fathers to their children. The enemy of God, satan, knows that whatever God sets out to do will cause catastrophic damages to him so he does whatever he can do to stop the plans of God. He noted that God sent back the spirit of Elijah so he evoked the spirit that fought Elijah in the days of old in the times of King Ahab. The only problem with this plan that satan has is that the spirit of old that he used, the spirit of Jezebel, was defeated then and will be defeated now. There is nothing new about the spirit of Jezebel for it fights the same exact way and uses the same strategies. If we walk in the obedience of Elijah and continue fathering the nations we will defeat this spirit forever. The Spirit of Jezebel is anti-generational and all we have to be is generational. To be generational means to have a genuine concern for our children.

The Voice of God came to John the Baptist after 400 years of silence because John had the Spirit of Elijah

After 400 hundred of silence the lord spoke again to a man named John the Baptist, because he had the voice of a father. John biological father could not speak for a season because he was guilty of not receiving John as his son. It is only when he acknowledge John as his son then he receive the miracle of speech. God will silent the voices of fathers who neglect their sons and allow their voices to be heard when they embrace their sons.

Luke 1:18 “18And Zacharias said to the angel, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.”
19And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings. 20But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time.”
21And the people waited for Zacharias, and marveled that he lingered so long in the temple. 22But when he came out, he could not speak to them; and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple, for he beckoned to them and remained speechless.”

Luke 1:59-67 “ 59So it was, on the eighth day, that they came to circumcise the child; and they would have called him by the name of his father, Zacharias. 60His mother answered and said, “No; he shall be called John.” 61But they said to her, “There is no one among your relatives who is called by this name.” 62So they made signs to his father—what he would have him called. 63And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote, saying, “His name is John.” So they all marveled. 64Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, praising God. 65Then fear came on all who dwelt around them; and all these sayings were discussed throughout all the hill country of Judea. 66And all those who heard them kept them in their hearts, saying, “What kind of child will this be?” And the hand of the Lord was with him. 67Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying:

The voices of the father will be heard when they call their sons by name. The Holy Spirit would fill fathers when they take back their responsibilities as a father. Your sons are in a mess right now because they have not heard your voice in a very long time. What you have spoken in time past is not really working well in time present. If they don’t hear your voice they will not understand your heart and if they don’t understand your heart they will eventually break your heart.

Many sons leave their fathers and never complete this process. When the process of sonship is aborted, sons are open to the spirit of Jezebel, lawlessness and the antichrist. A prominent minister was on a documentary produced by a major news network in the USA concerning hell. In this documentary this minister openly denounces the existence of hell and embraces the spirit of this world bringing shame to his father and the body of Christ. His father in the faith is a world renowned evangelist whom the secular and the church world have great respect for. This great father of the faith obviously has great pride in this particular son, for everywhere you will see this father you normally see him. This Father corrected the young minister on erroneous doctrines that he was teaching. The young minister, the pride of his father, took offense to his correction and left his father. This young minister is struggling but proudly declares that he is doing better than before. The news reporter ended his interview with a report that this young minister is now dying with cancer. A son in the church must first understand that the offense he may feel from the correction of a father is often the removal of offense in his life that may hinder his walk with God. Though the scalpel of a father may be painful, it will cut-off excessive skin that is bad for you in the future.

A son must first have the heart of his father in order for him to become a Father himself.

There is an increasing and alarming rate of betrayals, disrespect and disconnections of the father-son relationship in the body of Christ today. We may live under grace, but God will do whatever it takes to bring to pass the things he has spoken. Fathers will return to theirs sons and sons to their fathers so that a proper heart transfer can take place to save the next generation and establish the covenant of God. The conversion of a son into fathers comes from the heart. A son must first have the heart of his father in order for him to become a Father himself.

Adoption

Adoption

By

Dr. Kiwi S. Kalloo

Romans 15:15-21

 15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Very clearly did the spirit speak saying that we have been given a “spirit” and that spirit is not a spirit of fear but a spirit of adoption. A new covenant and in that new covenant there is an inheritance through promise. See, the scripture also declares that we were predestinated to be conformed to the image of his son. This was before the world began, before time was, before Adam and Eve, before the garden, before the fall of man, before we were born, before the moon and the stars.

See, God’s plan goes back before existence itself, for we know that in the beginning “God”.

Covenant;

ber·ēth’ (Key) – Hebrew

1) covenant, alliance, pledge

a) between men

1) treaty, alliance, league (man to man)

2) constitution, ordinance (monarch to subjects)

3) agreement, pledge (man to man)

4) alliance (of friendship)

5) alliance (of marriage)

b) between God and man

1) alliance (of friendship)

2) covenant (divine ordinance with signs or pledges)

a) covenant making

b) covenant keeping

c) covenant violation

 To fully understand adoption, we must first come to an understanding of Covenant. To be in covenant means to be in a relationship. A covenant is not something that can stand alone, but it is an agreement, usually formal, between two or more persons to do or not to do something specific.

A covenant is a pledge, an alliance, a constitution set forth that supersedes circumstances and conditions. Hear me friends, God has formed an alliance with his children, his pledge is a covenant pledge, his covenant is that of a promise, a promise of better things.

Hebrews 12:24

24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

God’s Covenant with Isaac:

“Now there was a famine in the land, besides the former famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Gerar, to Abimelech king of the Philistines. And the LORD appeared to him, and said, ‘Do not go down to Egypt; dwell in the land of which I shall tell you. Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will fulfill the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give to your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall bless themselves: because Abraham obeyed my voice and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.’ So Isaac dwelt in Gerar.” (Genesis 26:1-6)

Received;

läm-bä’-nō (Key) – Hebrew

1) to take

a) to take with the hand, lay hold of, any person or thing in order to use it

1) to take up a thing to be carried

2) to take upon one’s self

b) to take in order to carry away

c) to take what is one’s own, to take to one’s self, to make one’s own

1) to claim, procure, for one’s self

a) to associate with one’s self as companion, attendant

2) of that which when taken is not let go, to seize, to lay hold of, apprehend

4) to take to one’s self, lay hold upon, take possession of, i.e. to appropriate to one’s self

5) catch at, reach after, strive to obtain

6) to take a thing due, to collect, gather (tribute)

d) to take

1) to admit, receive

2) to receive what is offered

3) not to refuse or reject

4) to receive a person, give him access to one’s self,

 To receive means to take unto oneself, to lay hold of, to take ownership, to have possession of, to collect, to admit, to give access. See, when we read the scripture in Romans;

Romans 15:15-21

 15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

We often think about us receiving, putting aside the true purpose of the gift “God receiving us unto himself”, what a privilege, see, when we take ownership we think carnal, but when God takes ownership he takes it all, we often receive others because of the good that they show. When the old man shows up we condemn and cast out. A typical example would be Jesus and Judas, when Jesus took Judas under his wings he loved him unconditionally in spite of his weakness, he loved Peter in spite of his bad temper, he loved us in spite of our sin. Let’s take a test of self; if our neighbors offend us we cut them off for life but if our children offend us, we love them in spite of their weakness.

Spirit;

Pneuma – Greek

 1) the third person of the triune God, the Holy Spirit, coequal, coeternal with the Father and the Son

a) sometimes referred to in a way which emphasises his personality and character (the “Holy” Spirit)

b) sometimes referred to in a way which emphasises his work and power (the Spirit of “Truth”)

b) breath of nostrils or mouth

 In the same manner that God received us in spite of our sin and unworthiness, we have great need to receive him into our lives,  see as we get connected to him, he gets connected to us.

Bondage;

dü-lā’-ä (Key) – Greek

1) slavery, bondage, the condition of a slave

 Fear;

fo’-bos (Key) – Greek

1) fear, dread, terror

a) that which strikes terror

 F – False

E – Evidence

A – Appearing

R – Real

When God comes into our lives and we receive him as he receives us, there is no fear, no intimidation, no condition for his love. See, we are not received to become slaves under fear but to be loves as free.

Adoption;

hwē-o-the-sē’-ä (Key) – Greek

1) adoption, adoption as sons

a) that relationship which God was pleased to establish between himself and the Israelites in preference to all other nations

b) the nature and condition of the true disciples in Christ, who by receiving the Spirit of God into their souls become sons of God

 the act of adopting: the adoption of a new amendment.

1.

to choose or take as one’s own; make one’s own by selection or assent: to adopt a nickname.

2.

3.

to take or receive into any kind of new relationship: to adopt a person as a protégé.

4.

to select as a basic or required textbook or series of textbooks in a course.

5.

to vote to accept: The House adopted the report.

the state of being adopted.

 When God adopted us, he brought us into his own Kingdom and gave us access to his domain, gave us a room of our own and our own set of keys to get in. under his cover we are sheltered and protected from the elements and our food and clothing is provided by him. While we are under his cover he protects us but when we step out from under his cover, we become open to the elements and abuse of the passer bys.

A stranger, alien and foreigner to his commonwealth, without hope, unworthy and disconnected from the Father, he in his infinite way had designed a covenant that would take effect through promise and through this promise we would have an inheritance.

Through legal channels he sent forth his son as a mediator, to be the perfect sacrifice who was also the altar who was also the high priest who shed his own blood to redeem us and write us a new covenant in his own blood. Making us heirs and joint heirs with Christ, sons of Jesus, the 42nd generation, the man child, the first born among many. The sons of God.

Abba;

äb-bä (Key)– Greek

Abba = “father”

1) father, customary title used of God in prayer. Whenever it occurs in the New Testament it has the Greek interpretation joined to it, that is apparently to be explained by the fact that the Chaldee “ABBA” through frequent use in prayer, gradually acquired the nature of a most sacred proper name, to which the Greek speaking Jews added the name from their own tongue.

 Father;

pä-tā’r (Key) – Greek

a) the originator and transmitter of anything

1) the authors of a family or society of persons animated by the same spirit as himself

2) one who has infused his own spirit into others, who actuates and governs their minds

b) one who stands in a father’s place and looks after another in a paternal way

a) of the stars, the heavenly luminaries, because he is their creator, upholder, ruler

b) of all rational and intelligent beings, whether angels or men, because he is their creator, preserver, guardian and protector

1) of spiritual beings and of all men

c) of Christians, as those who through Christ have been exalted to a specially close and intimate relationship with God, and who no longer dread him as a stern judge of sinners, but revere him as their reconciled and loving Father

d) the Father of Jesus Christ, as one whom God has united to himself in the closest bond of love and intimacy, made acquainted with his purposes, appointed to explain and carry out among men the plan of salvation, and made to share also in his own divine nature

  15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

The process of Adoption is not just about taking on the name of the Parent Father that is standing in the gap to adopt but to take on his name. Taking on his name means to take on his nature and personality. Through adoption, it makes the candidate acceptable and qualified to take on family positions and authority. When Jesus came on the scene he said “I do those things that I am told of my Father” I am not of myself but I came to do the will of my Father. See, I have been contaminated by the sting of death which is sin and my Father found me and performed blood transfusion on me, for his blood was found to be worthy and compatible to flow through my veins, so when Doctor Jesus came on the scene, he prepared me for surgery and blood covenant through the spirit.

When that process of rebirth was taking place I was as dead but his blood revived me and now the life that I now live, I live by the faith of the son of God. It is no longer I that live but Christ that lives in me, for I am bought with a price and I am no longer a slave to sin but a prisoner of grace and that grace is all of God and none of us. So now because we have received that spirit of adoption, he calls us his own.

Taken from a place of darkness and death, we have grown accustomed to the spirit of darkness and death, but being transformed from death unto life, we are no more dead but alive unto God. Being in that place of carnality for so long, we all have grown to be attached to the things that is carnal and find it hard to get detached from that thing that beset us so easily.

 

The man-child is on his way

Establishing people in the Heart of God in Kingdom Principles, in Worship, Sonship and Maturity.

8/12

The church is in a mess and it was foretold in Jeremiah that the preachers will stand up and prophesy peace when there is no peace, it is indeed a time of war but only few there be that is putting on the whole armor of God, hence there is so many of us not being able to stand, you see, the scripture says that saviors shall come out of Mount Zion the church, those saviors are you and me and every over comer, the man-child that is being born out of the woman that is in childbirth, the body, the head, the hands, is all out and now the last part of the body is coming out of the womb of the woman, the foot company, the feet is being born. you see, we are the last church age, the woman that is giving birth is the church and the child is that child who was fathered by the Holy Ghost, not all that says lord shall enter in.
the Holy Spirit overshadowed the woman, the church and she became pregnant with Jesus, the man-child which shall be the saviors of the world. God made provisions for us at every level of our humanity.
        God is now calling out a nation from a nation, a people from a people, there is a stirring in the spirit and God is still speaking but not everyone is hearing because he said that my people have developed itching ears and they want to hear what they want to hear, as long as it does not contradict their religious practices, but in Jeremiah God said woe be unto those that would cause my people to err, truth still exist, holiness still exist, we are at a point where it seems like its all lost but God is building his church and a trumpet is being blown but there are other sounds that is coming forth at the same time, a spirit of confusion has swept through the church and there is a trumpet that is sending out an uncertain sound, the time for people to war is the time that they are at ease in Zion, when the trumpet of jubilee sounds, no one wants to set free those that are bound, no one wants to get free. When the trumpet sounds to gather ourselves, we are at war with each other. A man-child is being born who will stand tall and speak God’s heart and redeem his people, let therefore faith arise in us and cause us to press on so that we can attain the mark of the prize of the high calling to be like Jesus.

“INNOVATIONS EMERGES IN CRISIS” By Dr. Myles Munroe

“INNOVATION EMERGES IN CRISIS”       Innovation is the capacity to think beyond the known, defy the norm, and believe in one’s ability to solve problems. I remain positive because I am convinced that no problem is unsolvable. You do not have to throw in the towel, commit suicide, or quit because every problem has a solution. No matter what happens in this current economic crisis , you can solve it. 

         There are ways to rise above crisis. You have to think innovatively. What you need is on the inside of you. You have to initiate solutions. Do not wait for things to happen to you. Take control, and decide what happens. You have to place demands on your potential. Your answers may be found in a talent or ability that you least expect could be used. There is a way to rise above.

       In order to rise above crisis, you have to believe in your ability to solve problems. Look at what you have. Study your environment, your experience, and your relationships. You never know who has the rest of your puzzle. As it pertains to visionary leadership, you always have a piece of the vision for your life, and there are other people around you and in the world that have the rest of what you need.
 
     Additionally, you also have to see the potential of resources. Understand the true nature of resources. Study your resources. Then act. You have to have the attitude of a Kingdom innovator. You must believe that nothing is impossible. You must also believe that there is no one way to solve a problem. For example, you may have been taught that there are only two ways to cross water—by boat or swim. However, God told Moses, “No. I will open the water, and you walk on dry land” (Ex 14:16). Also, Jesus demonstrated another way to cross water; He walked on it (Matt 14:25).
 
     In these critical times, you need to find new ways to solve old problems. For example, Jesus performed miracles, using diverse methods. He healed several blind men but all in different ways. He touched two, put mud on the eyes of another, and just spoke to another (Matt 9:29; Jn 9:6; Lk 18:42). Therefore, though you may be in a financial crisis , there is more than one way to earn money. Do not think that you have to get a job in order to earn a salary. God may be saying, “I am not going to remove this crisis until you think differently.”
 
     Finally, never surrender to limitations. Crisis is the time to break barriers. Do not be afraid to fail. You will never succeed greatly until you are willing to fail greatly. This factor is a benefit of crisis. It pushes you in ways that you have never been before. Be willing to try anything at least once. It is better to have tried and failed than to not have tried and never know you could have succeeded.  

Adoption (taking on a new name)

The process of Adoption is not just about taking on the name of the Parent Father that is standing in the gap to adopt but to take on his name. Taking on his name means to take on his nature and personality. Through adoption, it makes the candidate acceptable and qualified to take on family positions and authority. When Jesus came on the scene he said “I do those things that I am told of my Father” I am not of myself but I came to do the will of my Father. See, I have been contaminated by the sting of death which is sin and my Father found me and performed blood transfusion on me, for his blood was found to be worthy and compatible to flow through my veins, so when Doctor Jesus came on the scene, he prepared me for surgery and blood covenant through the spirit.

Be Filled with the Spirit

Ephesians 5:18

18.  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

 

Excess of wine in the Greek (oy-nof-loog-ee’-ah)  (To thinking that you have something that you don’t or a false sense of hope.     

Excess means to be under the influence of another or a state of mind, thinking that its good for you, but in reality it’s really not.

 

We are the property of God, and as the property of God, we are expected to act and behave in a certain distinguish way. If we allow something to get into our system and to corrupt our way of thinking and causes us to act and behave out of character, that will be in excess. We know what wine and strong drink does. Paul said “let this mind which was in Christ be in you”. Having the mind of Christ will cause us to act and behave just like him. In order for the Sanhedrin council to take hold of Jesus and arrest him, they first had to come up with a plan to identify who he was. His disciples was so much like him in their character that it became difficult for the enemy to tell the difference. If we be Christ, then we are Abraham’s seed. The council knew where the gathering was but needed one of them to identify him. Judas went up to the Master and betrayed him with a kiss. Jesus said “if you have seen me, you have seen the Father, for I and the Father are one”.

 

To be in excess is to have more than enough, an abundance, of overflow. It also means to cram.

 

We have all been enticed with good food and desert, when we have eaten and have become full, and there is more to eat, we begin to cram some more down because it taste so good, it almost feels like the food and desert is up to our throat and cannot go down any further but we continue to have more. This is cramming, this is excess, too much, no balance.

 

Filled means to overflow, which comes from the Greek Word PLERO which means to overcome, to make complete, influence, supply, accomplish, furnish, satisfy, finish, make complete, to cram, more than enough.

 

Spirit here is represented by God, for God is a spirit. It comes from the Greek Word (PNEUMA) which means Life. So to be filled with the spirit means to be filled with the life of God.

 

Know Who You Are

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

 

Many of us today suffer from an identity crisis, we have been hanging out with Adam so long that we started to look like him and talk like him and behave like him. Its time to put of the old and put on the new, which is Christ.

 

Our bodies belong to God, we are temples of the holy ghost, we were bought with a price, we are paid for, we had a change of ownership. We through the fall went into slavery and Jesus came and bought us with a price, he paid for us with his life.

 

Many of us today acts like we are still in slavery, and because we have been in slavery for so long, although we are now free, we continue to live like we are bound and helpless and hopeless, Jesus paid it all. We continue to act and behave like the children of the world, devouring each other, ruthless, heartless, as though we are enemies. 

 

Paul said that we wrestle not, against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and the rulers of darkness. We ought to be our brother’s keeper, not sworn enemies. I see a shift in the strategic attack of the enemy, and that is to divide us and to put a permanent wedge between us and our brethren. We need to wake up and see that our brethren is part of us and when we fight among ourselves we are giving room to the devil.

 

Rom 8:16-17

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

 

we are children of the most high God and heirs, joint heirs with Christ.

 

Rom 9:23

23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,

 

We are vessels of mercies prepared for glory. What glory? The glory of God.

 

1 cor 3:16

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

 

we are the temple, the spirit dwells in us.

 

Eph 2:19

19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

 

We are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens, builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

 

Matthew 3:16

16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him :

 

We Die daily

Gal.2:20

20.  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:

 

Put Off The Old

Eph.4:17-22

17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

20 But ye have not so learned Christ;

21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:

22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

 

Col.3:5-11

5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.

8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

 

There is a putting off and a putting on, we cannot put new wine in old bottles, God is bringing change to this vessell of God. As the vessell changes it is being filled simultaneously with more of God. There is not enough room for the old and the new at the same time. God is filling his body with his spirit.

Covenant Relationship

Romans 8:15-21

15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

 17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

 18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

 19For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

 20For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

 21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

 22For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

God in his infinite way of thinking, decided that we were to be of his kind. we needed to go through a process so he created a flesh man (Adam) who would someday be used to bring forth a spirit man (Jesus) who would through redemption bring forth a transformed perfect man in Christ Jesus. (the sons of Jesus)

This all came into being through adoption which gave us the right to call Almighty God Daddy “my own Father”

In essence, when we say Abba, we are saying “my own Father”.

 

True Worship

True worship comes from within, it is something that is willed from the inner man. it is the one thing that is part of man but not carnal.

Carnal worship is sensual fleshly and vain but spirit worship can only come from the heart.
