GOD DOING BATTLE FOR US

One of the great stories in the Bible is the story of Jehoshaphat and how Almighty God fought a battle for him that he could not win on his own. Many times I hear Christians say “God is fighting this battle for me” or “if we will praise the Lord, He will fight this battle for us.”

CALEB-MAN OF COURAGE

God was so angry with the children of Israel (because they wouldn’t put their trust in God’s Word) that they had to wander in the wilderness for 40 years before they were allowed to go into the promised land. When they finally went in, guess who was there? That’s right, Joshua and Caleb. The other 10 spy’s had long ago died. We will talk about Joshua in another story, but let’s look at Caleb’s inheritance in the Promised Land. In the book of Joshua chapter 14 is where we find the story of Caleb taking his promised land.

HE KNOWS YOUR NAME

How important you are to Jesus if He has a secret name for you that only He and you know. Often very close friends and family members have pet names that mean a lot to each other. Sometimes they are known to just a few people, sometimes only to each other.

GOD SHALL SUPPLY

I’m not saying it is always easy to start walking in our Father’s abundant provision, I am saying it is simple. Because we have grown up in the world system’s way of doing things, it can be hard to change. It requires us to put our total trust in our Heavenly Father and the finished work of Calvary. That will come only as we spend MUCH time in the Word and build up our belief in God’s willingness to keep His promises to us.

JESUS OUR WISDOM

1 Corinthians 1:30 says “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God.” If there is anything we need in this day and age it is wisdom. Where could we find a better source for true wisdom than from Almighty God. Our scripture verse says Jesus has become wisdom for us. If Jesus is our source of wisdom and He is the Word manifest in the flesh (John 1:1-14), then we just need to see what the Bible says about wisdom and apply it to our lives.

LIVING VICTORIOUSLY IN A FALLEN WORLD

Killer storms, disease, poverty, hatred, acts of terror, murder, theft, lying, all are things that started with the fall. Even the weeds in your garden came because of Adams disobedience. (Remember God the Father gave the ruler-ship of this earth to Adam. Genesis 1:28-31, and God has never taken that authority back from man. Just because man made a terrible mess of things, that didn’t cause God to go back on His Word to put mankind in control of this world system.

LOVE SCRIPTURES

1 John 3:13-24 Hereby know we love, because He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath the world’s goods, and beholds his brother in need, and shuts up his compassion from him, how doth the love of God abide in him? … Hereby shall we know that we are of the truth, and shall persuade our heart before him; because if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

MEN AND WOMEN OF COURAGE

God has stated numerous times in the Bible that He wants us to be men and women of courage. Hebrews 1:6 states “without faith it is impossible to please Him.” If we are going to live by faith it certainly is going to require courage, for faith will require us to step out of our comfort zone and into the miracle arena.

THE MODERN DAY CHURCH (PART 1)

This is a topic of great interest to me as I have been a Christian for over 50 years and love the church and have been involved in and worked in the church all that time. It saddens me to say the church is weak and ineffective but it is and to hide our head in the sand and refuse to believe so will not fix the problem. Let me say here, there is an answer from our Lord and it is a simple answer as most answers from God are, though not necessarily an easy thing to fix depending on our willingness to abide in the Word.

THE MODERN DAY CHURCH (PART 2)

In part one of this teaching we looked at some of the things that get blamed for the church being weak. I’m sure there are other excuses we use also. We humans are quick to blame someone or something for the short comings in our life. In this teaching I want to start looking at the reasons that the church could be and should be a power house of power and blessings for the Lord.

NEW BIRTH

In the book of John chapter three, there is a very interesting account of a Jewish leader who came to Jesus and told Him that he knew that He was from God. Jesus took this event to share with him and subsequently with us one of the most important teachings in the whole Word of God.

JESUS THE WORD

John 1:1-5, 14. This is one of the most amazing scriptures in the whole Bible. Let’s read it. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. Verse 14, And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and glory.

REIGN IN LIFE

“For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.”(Romans 5:17) What a powerful scripture, what a wonderful promise. I can reign in life. What, little bitty old me can reign in life? But I’m not talented like others I know, I’m just not the sharpest knife in the drawer, I came from just an average family, I’ve never accomplished anything above mediocre in my whole life. How can this be? It has absolutely nothing to do with you. It’s all from the Lord; our only involvement is to believe. Let’s look closer at this verse.

SEED TIME AND HARVEST

God's kingdom works in a specific way. It has rules and regulations and if you follow these you will get certain results. Most Christians just read a daily devotional and say a little prayer and wait to see how things turn out and whatever happens they think is God's will. You will never know the will of our Father if you don't spend serious time in the Word. His Word is His will. It behooves us to read and study the Word until we are mature in our understanding of Jesus the Word.

THEY TURNED THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN

There’s a fascinating scripture in Acts 17:6 that says in part “-These who have turned the world upside down have come here too.” Paul and Silas had come to Thessalonica to preach the Gospel. Some of the Jews believed as well as a large number of the Greeks. The unbelieving Jews dragged some of the converts to the city rulers and made this charge against them, hoping to get them in much trouble. They were blamed not only for turning the world upside down, but that in so doing they were acting contrary to the decrees of Caesar. The situation was serious enough that the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away, sending them to Berea for their own safety.

WALKING IN VICTORY

Everyone wants to be victorious in their life. No one wants to fail in the things they do in this life. Our Father God also wants us to succeed in everything we do. The good news is that by applying The Word of God in our life we will walk victorious in every area that we let the Word dominate. I have noticed throughout my life some people will be successful in some areas of their life while being a total failure in another. Maybe in finances they do well while in their marriage they are a complete failure. This should not be. Let’s get in the Word, meditate in the Word, and become one with the Word. If we do this we will enter into the finished work of Calvary, and have available to us all that Jesus accomplished.

WHAT YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW

I am one to believe we should gain knowledge and wisdom in this life. We should prepare ourselves to work and make enough money to take care of our family without leaning on society to give us welfare, unless there are extenuating circumstances beyond our control. We should also prepare ourselves emotionally and spiritually to interact successfully with our family and with those around us.

WHEN EVERYTHING GOES WRONG

As a Christian what should we do when our world falls apart? When the things we hold dear fail us. We have or will have things go wrong, terribly wrong. We live in a fallen world and eventually things will happen. The good news is that our Heavenly Father has not left us on our own to deal with our situation the best way we can.

WORRY OR MEDITATE ON GOD'S WORD

It seems in our world today, many, if not most people are always worrying and uptight about just about everything. What is the opposing party going to do, how am I going to make the car payment, I'm afraid I'm going to catch the flu, is my wife (husband) going to leave me, is my boss going to fire me, how can I get my grades up? Well you get the picture. Any and everything that comes our way can be either be worried about or you can move ahead with faith and confidence that Almighty God will lead you through it successfully. God wants you to always live victoriously and successfully in everything you do, whether it's overcoming sin in your life or any other thing that comes your way. Let's see what God's word say's about it.

WORSHIP THE FATHER IN TRUTH

Every promise in the Word of God is for you and He will give it to you just as it is written. If we don’t receive a promise from the Lord, it is our fault not God’s. Because humans have a hard time accepting responsibility it is popular among Christians today when they don’t come up with the answer promised in the Word to say well God in His infinite wisdom has said no to our prayer. That simply is not true, if it is promised in the Word then if we learn how to receive it by faith it will be ours. Because God only operates in truth and with infinite wisdom and knowledge He won’t give us a promise that He can’t always answer just as it is written in the Word.

ABOVE ALL ELSE

The Word has the life of our Heavenly Father resident in it. If believed and acted on it will make miraculous things come to pass in your world. Our two scriptures tell us if the Word is part of our life, it will bring health, long life, and prosperity to us. There are many more very important things that the Word believed will bring to us, but this is a short teaching; however they are easy to find if you spend time in your Bible.
