This is my words of explanation that I use in my writings. My three books are '12 Day Trail Ride' 'Secret 2 the Promises' and 'Becoming a king' This will be under construction for a while yet it can be used. I am editing it for color and font.
Compiled by Jim Bowline & The Holy Spirit
The verses and info below are compiled from my notes for writing and articles, to help find your way to your own truth. These are my opinion and my discernment with God. I pray they may help you in time of need and your discernment. Please compile your own truths, for these are mine, yet they are much the same as yours, for we both seek from the same source. I am glad you are looking here, this means you are seeking. Please confirm through God, discern. I pray that these words, direct you to conclude your own opinion, if they end being the same that is OK too.
Abundantly: John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 2ndPet. 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Tit. 3:5-7 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Son. 5:1 I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.
Addiction: Becomes affliction. The work of a unclean spirit. Your addiction has to do with not only a unclean spirit. It is Spiritual Conflict and you must treat it so. Use the following scripture, yet you must seek help you cannot do it alone. Please after using this scripture seek what is the basis of your circumstance, why did it happen? Then forgive it and anyone one involved, especially yourself. Inward battle; Rom.7:23; Spiritual weapons; 2Cor.10:4; Eph.6:12; Take authority and become a soldier. 1Tim.6:2:4; Weapons and armor; Eph.6:13-18; 1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Jas.4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Cast out unclean spirits & demons. Rebuke the past curses that has been handed down from generation to generation. Hear this, read this for it good for addiction and affliction. Ask to be delivered from the world, satan, and yourself, asking for grace.
Adopted into God’s family; God so loves us He predestined and gave us a way to be adopted into the Family of Jesus Christ. Eph 1:4 Before the creation of the world, he chose us through Christ to be holy and perfect in his presence. 5 Because of his love he had already decided to adopt us through Jesus Christ. He freely chose to do this 6 so that the kindness he had given us in his dear Son would be praised and given glory. Gal.4:5; Rom.8:15, Rom.8:23; Rom.9:4;
Adversity; expressing the various forms of distress and evil conveyed by four Hebrew words: öìò, cela‛, “a halting” or “fall”; öøä, cārāh, “straits” “distress,” “affliction”; öø, car, “straitness,” “affliction”; øò, ra), “bad,” “evil,” “harmful.” These words cover the whole range of misfortunes caused by enemies, poverty, sorrow and trouble. “Adversity,” which occurs once in the King James Version Heb 13:3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.
Rest assured when adversity comes, Jesus is with you. When you become confident in this, satan becomes a toothless dog. When did it happen that you decided to assume that life is always be good and that bad things never happen for a Christian? For example, when I was traveling got lost, I pretended I was on an expedition, discovering new adventures. Although this was entertaining, I was still lost. It was up to me to ask for directions and get help. First I prayed and talk to my Holy Spirit and that was when everything came into understanding.
The Secret, which assures a person that their future is determined by their thoughts. By your choices & actions, by what seeds you sow. By who or what leads you. If it is not the Holy Spirit who or what is it? Ps. 73:23 “Nevertheless I am continually with thee.” Life is right by following the guidance of your Holy Spirit. Learn and study 1 Cor. 12 & Eph. Chapter 4 for understanding the gifts of the Spirit. For this is the way through and from adversity, a loss, or a drowning storm, even the insignificant things in life. God wants us us to turn to Him for allllllllll things large or small. MSG 1Cor.10:13 No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he'll never let you be pushed past your limit; he'll always be there to help you come through it. God cannot prevent every tragedy without interfering in free will. Personal tragedy is the worse kind to understand. To reason it, we cannot. We have to rely on God’s word; KJV Pro 3:2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Affliction; a-flik´shun: Represents no fewer than 11 Hebrew words in the Old Testament, and 3 Greek words in the New Testament, of which the most common are, (thlī́psis). It is used (1) actively = that which causes or tends to cause bodily pain or mental distress, as “the bread of affliction” (Deu.16:3; 2Ch.18:26); often in plural, as “Many are the afflictions of the righteous” Great pain or distress caused by disease, famine, or sorrow. Ps.34:18“look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sin.” Ps.24:19 “ Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.” Isa.49:13b; Isa63:9; Ps.57:1b; Ps.119:107 Ps.119:50; a condition of great physical or mental distress or something that causes great physical or mental distress. Like satan’s disease or his lies. Rebuke satan by accepting God’s love and ways. Praise and worship God. Be filled with the Holy Spirit. Speak His laws and promises and act on them. Speak it, say; “I rebuke you satan and all that you have given my family over the past years. I say no to your ways, for God is my way, not yours! You cannot have my soul. I rebuke your disease and corruption. I accept God and His love”. In Jesus’ name; Ramah, it is written, Selah, and Amen!
Anger: Ps.22:24,25 Make no friendships with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go; Lest thou learn his ways; and get a snare in his soul. The company you keep will determine the trouble you meet. Stay away from negative angry people, it will rub off on you. There is nothing wrong with anger, it is a normal emotion everyone has it. What you do with it, when you are angry, that is what it is all about. Be careful of your motives, avoid sowing the wrong seeds and God‘s wrath. Mt.5:22; Jas.1:19,20; Eph.4:26; Prov.14:17; Prov.16:32; Ps.30:5; Ps.145:8; Neh.9:17; Prov.14:17; 16;32; Eph.4:26; 31&32; Rom.12:19-21;
Anointing; The world calls it this; 1. bless somebody with oil: to rub oil or ointment on a part of somebody’s body, usually the head or feet, as part of a religious ceremony, for example, in a Christian baptism or praying over.
2. ordain somebody: to install somebody officially or ceremonially in a position or office. I say it is it can have another meaning, God’s favor, He will give it when you are obedient. He honors you with His favor. When God gives you a mission or a purpose great or small He will anoint you to do it. He will place His honor on you to get the job done.
The bible dictionary on my lap top says; Anointing a-noint´ing: A distinction was made by the ancient Hebrews between anointing with oil in private use, as in making one's toilet (ñåÌê, ṣūkh), and anointing as a religious rite (îùÑç, māshaḥ).
Ordinary Use of olive oil; As regards its secular or ordinary use, the native olive oil, alone or mixed with perfumes, was commonly used for toilet purposes, the very poor naturally reserving it for special occasions only (Rth.3:3). The fierce protracted heat and biting lime dust of Palestine made the oil very soothing to the skin, and it was applied freely to exposed parts of the body, especially to the face
Ps.104:15. (2) The practice was in vogue before David's time, and traces of it may be found in the Old Testament (see Deu.28:40; Rth.3:3; 2Sa.12:20; 2Sa.14:2; 2Ch.28:15; Eze.16:9; Mic.6:15; Dan.10:3) and in the New Testament (Mat.6:17). Indeed it seems to have been a part of the daily toilet throughout the East. My opinion is wear all anointed, and when we listen and are obedient we show the fruit of it. Let me say it again, I want you to know that when people say he is anointed. It simply means one is operating in, God’s favor. They are walking in the blessing and not in the curse.
Armor of God; Eph. 6: 11-18; 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
Simply get right with God and renew yourself in the word. Wash away the world with the blood and put on the word.
Ask; and believe; The hardest thing I have had to do is convincing people that all they have to do in anything is ask God. He has all the answers and the secrets to fulfill, to overcome, to bring to fruition whatever it is you want or need. You have not because you ask not. You will receive direction and desires. Ask with faith, trust and expectation; While waiting act as you already have it (know it), and be busy about God’s work: Phil.4:19 …my God shall supply you’re your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus; Josh.1:8,9 "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; yet thou shalt meditate therein day and night. That thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success". 9 "Have not I commanded thee?" " Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest". Ask and believe You shall receive, have faith, without faith prayer does not work: receivers are the believers, the doubters are the with outers. Read ‘measure’. Mk.11:24 Therefore I say unto you. What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them. Come boldly before God and ask what ye will. Deu. 28:1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: Deu 28:2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. Pro.2:8 Ask of Me, and shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Further refer: Ps.4:3, Ps.20:4, Ps.20:5, Isa.45:11; Mt.7:7,8; Jn.14:14; Jn.16:24b; Jas.1:6a;
Attitude: This is another hard one to convince people, it is all about attitude in everything we do. Attitude is: bodily posture: a physical posture, either conscious or unconscious, especially while interacting with others. Conscious assertiveness: an arrogant or assertive manner or stance assumed as a challenge or for effect. We can not control things that happen to us, yet we can control things in us. The true attitude is what you say and do when under attack from satan. It is pure when you respond in gratitude and love. Love in the attitude of gratitude, be the victor.
It is Godly attitude that counts. What you think you are and what comes out of your mouth set the attitude around you. When an angry person comes in the room or a sad person, what is the attitude?
.Neh 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. GW Eph 4:29-30 Don't say anything that would hurt another person. Instead, speak only what is good so that you can give help wherever it is needed. That way, what you say will help those who hear you. Don't give God's Holy Spirit any reason to be upset with you. He has put His seal on you for the day you will be set free from the world of sin.
Authenticity: My authenticity is living the best I can through the difficulties, they are the possibilities, for God’s love to work. There is a co-laboring roll we have authenticate our minds & to co-operate with the Lord, it is then when signs and wonders and miracles abound. This requires authenticity in understanding your identity in Christ is absolutely essential to your success at living in the light. By this you have direct access to the throne of grace through Jesus Christ. ... essential in overcoming fear. In Christ, we have solutions to our problems (Study Eph.1:3-23). By having access to His name and credit, our spiritual obligations are paid, and our legal problems with the law of God are cleared (2:1-10). By accepting Jesus and what He did your identity became part of the ‘Royal Family of Jesus’. The authenticity of it is living in the light and accepting the mantles and using them in the helping others see the light. Proving to yourself and others you live in the light the best you can. Eph. 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: Eph. 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Authority: Be not consumed by fear of satan, take authority over him, rebuke the evil one, be consumed by God and His love and you will be armed against satan and his principality. Be a living sacrifice to God. If you do not understand this, Asked God to reveal the answer. I have given you a lot of scripture below on authority. Please look up in the bible and study authority and get it instilled in you so you can use your authority correctly and in a Godly manner. How to surrender to the right authority and be in authority. One must overcome; Rev. 12:10-12 verse 11 And they overcome him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death. Be in Jesus and Jesus in you. Have the identity of Christ. Live in life with not being content with it, seeking to overcome satan and his ways, through the blood of Jesus. Woe, unto those who do not… For those who do rejoice in Jesus, you will rejoice in Heaven. Overcome the world, and it’s ways. Let me make it clear, satan is not the opposite of God. The devil was created, God was not, The devil’s back was broken on Cavalry. Let me warn you non believers, God never loses. Do not give satan any credit in being a being that is in victory in any way. He cannot control you or any part of your life if you are reborn and do not let him trespass into your life. God has given you dominion and authority over the earth. Psa 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: Mat 7:22 Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name? Didn't we force out demons and do many miracles by the power and authority of your name?' Mat 10:1 Jesus called his twelve disciples and gave them authority to force evil spirits out of people and to cure every disease and sickness. 1Cor.11:3 However, I want you to realize that Christ has authority over every man, a husband has authority over his wife, and God has authority over Christ. 2Cor.10:8 So, if I brag a little too much about the authority which the Lord gave us, I'm not ashamed. The Lord gave us this authority to help you, not to hurt you. Eph.5:21 Place yourselves under each other's authority out of respect for Christ. Eph.5:22 Wives, place yourselves under your husbands' authority as you have placed yourselves under the Lord's authority. Phil.3:21 Through his power to bring everything under his authority, he will change our humble bodies and make them like his glorified body. 1Th 4:8 Therefore, whoever rejects this order is not rejecting human authority but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit. Tit 2:15 Tell these things to the believers. Encourage and correct them, using your full authority. Don't let anyone ignore you. Tit 3:1 Remind believers to willingly place themselves under the authority of government officials. Believers should obey them and be ready to help them with every good thing they do. Heb 13:17 Obey your leaders, and accept their authority. They take care of you because they are responsible for you. Obey them so that they may do this work joyfully and not complain about you. Psa 47:3 He brings people under our authority and puts nations under our feet. 2Sa 22:48 God gives me vengeance! He brings people under my authority.
Baptism: 1. rite of purification: a religious ceremony in which somebody is sprinkled with or immersed in water to symbolize purification. In Christian baptisms, the person is often named and accepted into the Christian faith.
2. initiation or naming ceremony: a ceremony that serves as an initiation or naming ritual . That is world’s definition of baptism.
To a Christian this means: Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. God does His part now you have to do your part. I believe that when you accept and proclaim your salvation and you are (immersed) in water you are symbolic in being buried then resurrected to life, and being raised back up out of the water it washes away by the power of the Blood of Jesus in cleanses you from your sins. In this you are baptized, then God gives you the power to make the right choice and turn away from sin, because He gives you a brand new nature, a “way“. By your commitment as in marriage to Christ. Even though we know that we still have a old way, which only knows the old ways, we have to teach our old selves new ways. It is liken to be being married. One stops dating other people and commits to their spouse, and commits to the love for one another. Being a servant to one another and understanding sozo of it. That is what baptism is like. It is easy to do, yet the process is hard, we need not only to confess, we need to be with other Christians as much as we can. Yet understanding the wholeness of salvation which is what I call sozo (Greek word) gives us a place to renew to. Made whole in Christ, complete. Full of unmeasured grace and unconditional love. With the knowledge of we cannot do it alone, the word tells to love one another and to fellowship, to bare one another and each other‘s burdens. Then by understanding this verse and act, you receive your gift; Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost; Your Gentlemen Spirit, the discerner and voice to God and from God.
I think people seem to trivialize the baptism experience. Let m say it again we need to think of it as marriage vows, it not a whim, we have to start thinking like a married person and being true to only one. Hos.2:19 And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in loving kindness, and in mercies. 20 I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD. Now you have the keys to life, read and study the word, for it is your bread to nourish your soul.
Bare: To expose, naked, uncover, reveal, disclose, reveal, show, or display.
Bear; Putting up - abide with one another’s faults. Making allowance for each other’s short coming. Baring one another faults & burdens…after all God bears and bares yours.
Gal. 6:1-2 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. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Luke 11:46; Rom. 15:1; 1Thess. 5:14; 1Pet. 2:24
Beatitudes. Spiritual mountain climbing: Mt.5:3-11 & Lk.6:20-26; Mt..5:3 Humility; Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Penitence for sin; Mt.5:4 Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted. Meekness, one of a new spirit, and a doer of the word; Mt.5:5 Blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth. Spiritual Hunger, one’s growth; Mt.5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled. Mercifulness; Mt.5:7 Blessed are the merciful; for they shall obtain mercy. Purity in heart; Mt.5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God. Peacemaking; Mt.5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God." Summit of the steps: Mt5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake…. Mt.5:11; Rejoice. Mt.5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad; for great is your reward in Heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets wjich were before you. Examples of the Beatitudes; Ps.1:1; 32:1; 40:4; 41:1; 65:4; 89:15; 112:1; Isa.32:20; Mt. 11:6; Lu.6:22; 11:28; 12:37; Jn.20:29 Ja.1:12; Rev.14:13; 19:9; 22:7.
Belief: To have firm conviction of truths in religion; To have faith, as in the existence or the truth in something. To believe in God and His truths. If you don’t change your thinking you cannot change your life. Mark 11:23 speak to your mountain and do not doubt, believe in your heart. Rm.10:10 By your heart and mouth is by these. When you have it in your heart and speak what you want through the word. In order to have this you have to line your Soul & Body up with the word and Kingdom so align with your spirit and Holy Spirit. Your spirit has been reborn, what God recognizes and is able to speak to is your spirit that is reborn. Jn.20:29; Acts10:43; Jn.6:47; 1Pet.2:6; Jn.3:16;
Bind and loosening: Mat 18:18-20 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. After studying this verse and the words used in it I have come up with the word bind means forbid and loosed means allow. Now I pray and speak differently, I still bind and loose yet now I use forbid and allow in there place most of the time. Prayer is the opening of the heart so we can receive all these good things that God has for us every day. It's like sitting down at a table that God has prepared for us. He says, I have everything you need today - all the grace, all the wisdom, all the provision that you need - so sit down at the table and eat. Don't be so rushed and so busy and try to live without My supply.
Every storm, every problem, every circumstance you go through do it with Jesus, and you will see it has a blessing attached to it. Learn to bind and loose. Rebuke satan for a blessing. After all he is the one who is probably causing your situation. Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
1Jn.4:4 Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1Sam.17:47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands. 2Chron.20:15 …Thus saith the Lord unto you. Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.. Luk 10:20 Not withstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. Binding, casting, and loosing It may be a good thing for one to bind up that old hurt or sin and cast it into the sea. Then ask God to forgive you and help you repent of it. Refer: Mt.12:28; Mt.16:18,19; Mar.1:26, 34; Lk.9:1; Lk.10: 17-19; Jn. 12:31; Jn.14:13,14; Col.2:15.
The Bible says if we ask anything according to His will, we know the Lord will hear us. So one of the things we have to check on is, are we praying in the spirit and the will of God as revealed in Scriptures? Mat. 16:19; Joh. 20:23; Act. 15:23-31; 1Cor. 5:4, 1Cor. 5:5; 2Cor. 2:10; Rev. 3:7, Rev. 3:8
Blame: My friends blame only brings shame. Blame is prideful. It is trying to collect. It is God’s job to collect. The only way for you to benefit is by letting God do the collecting, give it all to God. Then God blesses you by doing the right thing and forgiving. Cowboy up with Jesus, take authority over satan and tell him to hit the trail. Ask for God’s forgiveness and repent. Ask for deliverance from self and the world. Whoever or what ever let it go. Dung happens in life. It is how you react to stuff is what God evaluates you and your motives. To forgive is letting go of the past and it is setting a prisoner free, you may discover the prisoner was you. Remember the good & let go of the bad. MT.6:14,15 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Eph.4:31,32 "let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice; and be ye kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ sake hath forgiven you"; Col. 3:13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
Blaspheme; To be disrespectful of sacred things. To utter a blasphemy; to curse and swear. This is a serious sin, take not lightly. Le.24:11; 2Chr.32:16; Isa.65:7; Jam.2:7; Rev.13:1; 16:11; Mt.9:34;
Blessings: Prov. 10:22 The Lord's blessing is our wealth; all our works adds nothing to it. Blessings are for the doers of the word. Blessings get blocked sometimes by our tongue. Be careful of what you think and speak. Prov.21:23
Born Again: Basically this means your spirit is reborn so it can be holy to be in the presence of God and recieve all that God has for one. Remember God is a spirit.
Nicodemus was asking jesus about being born again. John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Bridal; Jam 3:2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. Jas 1:26, 3:5; 3:8.
Bride of Christ; It is my understanding; we who are baptized and committed our lives to Jesus are His bride so to speak. Also it is when Jesus returns for His bride in Revelation. Eph. 5: 15-32. We are the body of Christ and He is the head, yet we are one in Him and He in us | John 17:18-26; 1 John 4:12,13; 1 John 3:24 (Same thing that happens in marriage). This is our marriage where we become one with Christ. We date no one else. There is also this kingdom of heaven parable that is very similar to ancient Jewish wedding custom. We are the bride who needs to understand sin and guilt.
Burdens; Help one another with burdens and love one another. Gal 6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. Most of all know Jesus, put on His yoke, He is the one who will make your burden light. Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Business problems: Jer. 32:27 Behold I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there any thing to hard for Me? John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you. That ye should go fourth and bring fruit. Ps.55:22 cast thy burdon upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee; He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Pro.3:5 trust in the Lord with all thine heart; lean not unto thine own understanding. Refer: Isa.45:2; 111Jn2; Phil.4:19; Jn.15:7; Lk.6:38; Isa.41:13; Pro.16:3
Can Do; Christians come in cans, can’ts are an oxymoron to us. We are saints not aints. LOL All things are possible through God.
Capacity is the nature in you of God or of the world. Romans 8:29 We fall short of receiving the fullness of God's grace and developing the fullness of the measure of our capacity in God because we fall short of allowing God’s capacity to grow within us. Truly, God sees a greater capacity in you than you think. He has predestined you “to be conformed to the image of His Son.” We ask & work at, in the development of increasing the capacity in the word of God, the nature of God. It is to have your heart increase in love by the growing capacity to engage in real relationship with your Creator. Rm.12:6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
Caught up, see rapture. Regardless of what you believe rapture when or where; if you are saved, you are going to be with Jesus.
Caring, Friend: God being our ultimate friend. Jesus is our example. Ps.55:22; Acts 16:31; A friend in need is a friend indeed. Love and help one another, also in bearing with one another, putting up with. Rm. 12:10; Phil.2:1-5; Prov.20:5 Counsel of the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out. Being a friend; LK.10:25-37; Jn.15:11-17; Rom.16:1-2
Casting of Lots:The practice of casting lots is mentioned 70 times in the Old Testament and seven times in the New Testament. In spite of the many references to casting lots in the Old Testament, nothing is known about the actual lots themselves. They could have been sticks of various lengths, flat stones like coins, or some kind of dice; but their exact nature is unknown. The closest modern practice to casting lots is likely flipping a coin.
The practice of casting lots occurs most often in connection with the division of the land under Joshua (Joshua chapter 14-21), a procedure that God instructed the Israelites on several times in the Book of Numbers (Numbers 26:55; 33:54; 34:13; 36:2). God allowed the Israelites to cast lots in order to determine His will for a given situation (Joshua 18:6-10; 1 Chronicles 24:5,31). Various offices and functions in the Temple were also determined by lot (1 Chronicles 24:5,31; 25:8-9; 26:13-14). The sailors on Jonah's ship (Jonah 1:7) also cast lots to determine who had brought God's wrath upon their ship. The 11 Apostles cast lots to determine who would replace Judas (Acts 1:26). Casting lots eventually became a game people played and made wagers on. This is seen in how the Roman soldiers cast lots for Jesus’ garments (Matthew 27:35).
The New Testament nowhere instructs Christian to use a method similar to casting lots to help with decision making. In Acts chapter 1, when the apostles cast lots to determine who would replace Judas, this likely was not God’s desire for the apostles. Jesus had repeatedly told the apostles to wait for the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4-5), who would instruct them and give them wisdom. That is how we are to discern God’s will today – not by casting lots, rolling dice, or flipping a coin.
CCR; Constant, consistent, relationship, with God, through your personal relationship with Jesus. Even Jesus told us to CCR; MSG 1Jn 4:15 Everyone who confesses that Jesus is God's Son participates continuously in an intimate relationship with God. John 17:21-22 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one. Giving your daily problems and putting it on the altar so God will burn away the chaff. The Message bible says in MSG Luke 18:1 Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit.
Chastisement: God is a good father that is why He corrects you, it is a good thing my saints. Prov. 3:12 Because the Lord disciplines those He loves, as a father a son he delights in. Jb.5:17,18; 1Cor.11:32; Heb.12:6
Cherish; love and care for somebody: to feel or show great love or care for somebody, hold them dear, and keep them warm… I am telling you, God wants you men to cherish your wives, keep them warm, provide for them what they need. This requires three kinds of love. To love as Jesus loved the church, (Agape) love, spiritual guidance. To (Philos) brotherhood, fellowship, love them be their best friend. Lastly and most importantly, to love them romantically, conjugal love (Aeros), this does not just mean sex, it means meet their needs first. If you are needing formula this i it.
Children: Teach our children; Isa.54:13;Mt.7:28; Mark 10:14-16;Acts 16:31; Ps.128:3; Isa.44:3; Pro.3:11; Pro.13:13-14&24; Pro.17:6; Prov.22:6; Pro.22:15; Due.6:7; Isa.28:9-10; Raising children; Col.3:21; Eph.6:4
Choices: Read decisions; The freedom of choice is our God given right, make the right one’s.
Rev. 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Christian Protocol: is walking, talking, taking ownership in defining of who you are, & how to walk as an ambassador of the Kingdom of God, knowing who you are in Jesus, partnering with God in everything, knowing your inheritance, and walking in authority and in love and from love, not for love. Practice the Way, Divine Order, Kingdom Order, Kingdom Protocol, Divine DNA, Command Jesus Protocol, Kingdom Code of behavior, Kingdom Modus Operandi.
Using the tools He has provided. Daily putting on our armour, being obedient as in Eph. 6:11-20 tells us. Living Col. 3:12;Understanding Gen. 28:12; Study Eph. Heb. And Romans… know the word, practice, practice, practice. Covered in the Blood of Jesus, forgiven and forgive, manifest the glory, manifest what you need from the glory. Healing and spreading the Gospel through signs and wonders using dunamis love and dunamis power.
We don’t have to have scripture memorized just know it and live it. Your Holy Spirit will help you speak it when you need it. This is defining your behavior, owning your responsibility of being a Christian in knowing you are adopted into the Royal Family of Jesus and taking on the job of ambassador, receiving your salvation of love and your wonderful gift of your Holy Spirit. Live by not grieving the Holy Spirit.
Your Protocol is to be clothed in grace & to be filled with God’s love in truth, and to be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom with spiritual understanding; walking your walk worthy of the Lord, that means with your head on straight in knowing you work from love grace, & favor not for them, to be unto all pleasing to God, being fruitful in everything you do, every good work, you have to work at increasing in the knowledge of God and His Kingdom.
Live to be a wind walker, water walker, and a love talker. Be the world’s greatest lover by understanding the book John. I encourage you to seek the mysteries of God (Eph. 3) and His promises, learn to receive all that God has for you, soak in His presence and study His love, His grace, & most of all His glory. Learn how to manifest what ever you dream or desire through God’s principles and promises, you are going to do things greater than Jesus. You can redefine Christian Protocol every time you have a light bulb moment. Study Rm. 12:2; Eph, 2:6-10; Live in this manner and God told me He will give you Due. 28:1-14. Living the dream no matter the circumstance, do your best and let God do the rest.
Circle of Love: What Jesus did for us. One has to live in the Circle of Love = saved, repent, forgive, ask 4 deliverance, commit, baptism, and love one another through good works and God‘s purpose in your life, fall, get up, recognize; repeat… Cycle of your walk. Just recognize and admit to yourself you cannot do it alone. Understand this is not a license to sin and live what you want. It is a way to get back into the graces and mercies of God. In independence is what we have been taught. This is usually when we get in trouble, doing it alone in or by our own device. Learning to cowboy up with Jesus so to speak. Sin, understanding sin and guilt is cleansed by the blood. Sin has been washed away once and for all, you have delivered. You been given freedom. Released from the burden of sin. Trust and depend on God and one another.
Study Hebrews and Romans they give us a good understanding of sin. This study will give you the understanding of this whole paragraph. Learning what the Circle of Love and Kingdom is all about. Here in Acts is a explanation worth understanding, Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost; the word translation of aphesis has been given as remission, the first word after “aphesis is freedom“. This is what we have when we become a saint, part of the Royal Family of Jesus. To love one another through good works, living CCR, to become a GT. Then working God‘s purpose in your life, fall, get up, recognize, reconcile, forgive, let go and ask for deliverance from self and the world, ask for God‘s grace; repeat… CCR to become a GT. Seek the Kingdom first. Walk in obedience. Cycle of your walk. Just recognize and admit to yourself you cannot do it alone. This is usually when we get in trouble, doing it alone in or by our own device. Repeat by starting with rededication and forgiveness. Keep pressing to the mark, envision your goal and dreams. Trust in God to get you there.
Circumcision G4061 peritomēn Thayer Definition:
1) circumcised 1a) the act or rite of circumcision, “they of the circumcision” is a term used of the Jews 1a1) of Christians gathered from among the Jews. 1a2) the state of circumcision, 1b) metaphorically 1b1) of Christians separated from the unclean multitude and truly consecrated to God, 1b2) the extinction of passions and the removal of spiritual impurity.
It is my opinion that circumcision was replaced with an act of baptism and a covenant with God, including man and woman with an act in likeness of marriage along with sanctification and expectation. Add scripture
Comfort: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart. Ps.34:15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry. Ps.55:22 cast thy burdon upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee; He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Refer: Isa.57:19; Isa.63:19; 1Cor.1:4,5; 11Thes.2:17; Ps.34:18; Isa.61:3; 1Thes.4:13,14; Isa.57:18; Ps.18:2; 37:24; 138:7; Neh.1:7;
Commandment of Jesus: Jn.15:12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Joh_13:34; Rom_12:10; Eph_5:2; 1Th_3:12, 1Th_4:9; 2Th_1:3; 1Pe_1:22, 1Pe_3:8, 1Pe_4:8; 1Jo_2:7-10, 1Jo_3:11-18, 1Jo_3:23, 1Jo_4:21
Commit: Commit your works and thought to God before you act on them. True commitment is partnering with God in everything and every part of yourlife.
Pro 16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. Psa 37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Your thoughts in your mind and plans of the heart belongs to the natural man, and answer on the thoughts and tongue comes from the LORD. Ask for God to intervene where one falls short. A person thinks all his ways are pure, yet the LORD weighs every motive. Entrust your ideas and plans to your Holy Spirit to ask the LORD, and I promise your plans will succeed. Because He will change your heart where needed and open doors in favor where needed. "For I know the plans I have for you, ”declares the Lord”, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
Commitment: Christian commitment: Add scripture I commit to champion fellowship of the unashamed. The decision has been made. I'm committed to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. I have crossed over the line, in not looking back, I look to stir glory and seek a supernatural life in giving to others. My past is redeemed, the old man is dead, my present has meaning and full of love, grace, and glory, in these things I have everlasting sense and wisdom at hand. Tomorrow is secure and has the substance of the Kingdom for the fullness thereof. I'm finished with worldly deception of lowly living. The lies and colorless dreams are no more. I do not need to be more than other men and be rewarded with prideful fulfillment, where happiness is fleeting. I choose Joy for this is a day the Lord has made, and I choose His ways and promises. I live by faith and trust, learning to have a loving relationship with Jesus & soaking in His presence letting Him have His way with me. I drink from 180 proof of glory and love, His living waters. I have learned to walk drunk in Him. I am walking the walk with love and in authority under meekness by patience, guided by prayer, and labor by power. My countenance is set, my road is narrow, my way can be a storm yet it is with Jesus, my Guide is more than reliable, He is more than enough, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, deluded, or delayed. I walk in ambassadorship to the Kingdom of God, I walk in Christian Protocol and redefining it daily. I thirst for more Lord, more. I yearn for the Shekinah Glory. I won't give up, or let up, until I have prayed up, stayed up, soaked up, stored up, preached up for the cause of the Kingdom, which is the way of Jesus by His example. For I am a disciple of Jesus by this my shadow cast a healing and redeeming supernatural power. I must go & share what I know, while redefining my protocol, and being refilled in His presence so I can leak out love where ever I go. Stirring the Holy Spirit and glory by my very presence, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own. When going gets tough, we cowboy-up with Jesus. Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Acts 9:4-6 And he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" And he said, "Who are Thou, Lord?" And He said, "I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, but rise, and enter the city, and it shall be told you what you must do." Acts 9:15-16 But the Lord said to him [Ananias], "Go, for he [Saul of Tarsus who becomes Paul the Apostle] is a chosen instrument of Mine, to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel; for I will show him how much he must suffer for My name's sake."
Common Good: Look under Greater Good. God’s overall plan, what is good for all. 1Cor.12:7 The evidence of the Spirit's presence is given to each person for the common good of everyone.
Communion: Say More 1. intimacy: a feeling of emotional or spiritual closeness 2. connection: an association or relationship. This what my dictionary said. I say it is known as the sacrament of the last supper; Breaking of Bread through communion with Jesus, in remembrance of Him. Have passion and let it come from the heart and ask forgiveness, yet it is more than this. Renew the mind and soul. For this is the ultimate act in a personal intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. The meal that heals, I say do this as often as you can and make it a habit. I call it a way to cowboy up with Jesus.1Cor.11:20-34; John 6:47-57.
Compassion: Compassion is that deep love we feel for others that stirs in our hearts. We see Jesus moved by compassion several times in the Gospels (See Matthew 9:36; Matthew 20:34). God is looking for men who put compassion to work, in relationships before results and people before profits. He gives us Timothy as an example. Paul says this of Timothy in Philippians 2:20 (NIV): “I have no one else like him, who takes a genuine interest in your welfare.” Timothy put relationships before results. One thing for sure, this is not natural for me. It’s my nature to focus on results, not relationships. Slowly I am starting to understand relationships are the soul builder, it helps us become who we need to be. Most of the men in our churches are like that. We’re results-oriented. Often women tend to be more relationship-oriented than men. As men, we need to work on this. People last; profits don’t.
Confidence: Comes from having faith in God and letting Him work in your life and you see the result of it. Heb.3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end. Heb.10:35 cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. Refer: Phil.1:6; prov.14:26; prov.46:10; 1Jn.5:14,15. 1Pet.5:7.
Conformation: Confirmation and discernment go hand in hand. After you get the word and discern it, you need confirmation be fore you act on it. Mk.16:20B…confirming the word with signs following. 2K.20:9; Acts14:22; Lu.2:12; What I am saying is be sure you are doing God’s word and not yours. God can confirm to you through some else without them knowing, or the radio or article, even Sunday service. The more important decision the more conformations needed. Like 3 for deciding on a job or getting a dog, etc., 7 for a house or car, 10 for marriage, or children, etc.
Confusion: The devils favorite tool. The author of confusion is satan not God. 1Cor.14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but for peace… Isa.50:7a For the Lord God will me; therefore shall I not be confounded.
Counsel: Spirit of;
Controlling satan: Be not consumed by fear of satan, be consumed by God and His love and you will be armed against satan and his principality, God never looses and satan is already defeated. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. One must overcome; Rev. 12:10-12 verse 11 And they overcome him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death. Live in life with not being content with it, seeking to overcome satan and his ways, through the blood of Jesus. Woe, unto those who do not… Pray to renew in sozo. Stay in God’s presence and be fully filled, drunk in the Spirit the devil can not mess with you when you are with God, smile. For those who do, you will rejoice in Heaven. Overcome the world, and it’s ways. Let me make it clear, satan is not the opposite of God. The devil was created, God was not, The devil’s back was broken on Cavalry. Do not give him credit in being a being that is in victory in any way. He cannot control you or any part of your life if you are reborn and do not let him trespass into your life. The devil can and will whisper, poke, push or even shout at you, yet he cannot make you do anything. You have to let him or go along with what he says or rules. Listen not to satan, he is a liar, deceiver, and a murder; One who walks & makes their mind in the worlds word or ways is convicted; you cannot do both be forgiven & saved. Know if you do not follow Jesus, then you follow satan. Hell will be full of fence riders and those who could not make up their mind. Mat 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Mk.16:17;
Eph.1:21,22; 6:12; Eph.4:31,32 "let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice; and be ye kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ sake hath forgiven you" 1 Peter 5: 7 Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. It is God’s battle. 2Chron.20:15 …Thus saith the Lord unto you. Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 1Pe 5:7 Casting all your care upon him, for He careth for you. 1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Lk. 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. Luk 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve. More reference: 1Sam.17:47; 2Chron.20:15; Eph 1:19-23; Gen 1:26 ; 1Ch 12:17 Luk 17:3. & Tit 1:13 Learn the principles of binding and loosening. Father God I bind satan and his ways and demons and fallen angels and cast them into the sea and loose them there out of my life and ways on this day. Father God I bind myself to You and Your grace and love. I loose everything You have for me into my life right now. I bind myself to the capacity to receive everything that You send to me and I loose what you send through me to others so we can all be blessed. In the Sweet name of Jesus Amen.
Courage Be of good courage, for with God who can be against you, for will not fail or forsake you in your season of adversity. Be of the identity of Christ, be in Him, and He in you. You are the head not the tail. Trust in God and you shall have peace. Due.31:6 Be strong and of good courage; fear not, nor be afraid of them; for the Lord thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Kings 6:16 Don’t be afraid the prophet answered. Those who are with us are more than those who are with them. Jos.1:9; Ps.27:14; Ps.37:28; Ac.28:15:
Covenant: New and Old: Webster says; an agreement, a compact. It is my belief that God’s main promise to man, the basis of all the promises. Go to your concordance and study all the covenants of God to man, it is important to understand what a hard time God has had getting the word into man. He had to keep changing the covenant and for Him to keep the promise, so to speak. Nothing is to hard for God. Let me advise you to Study and find your truth. God gave it to us through Jeremiah, Jesus made the new covenant possible. By the way, this is God’s last covenant to man, at least that is what I concluded. This will make a good assignment: Look up it enters from with in and is written upon your hearts, isn’t that cool? Jer.31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; after those days, saith the Lord. I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. I just love to hear that I will, before it was “you do” or I command you. This makes it much easier, all we have to do is accept Christ in our hearts and believe that He died for our sins and was resurrected. That is much easier than all the other covenants. Jer.31:31-34; Rom.10:19 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Jer.11:3B Cursed obeyeth not the words of the covenant. and study the new covenant. Hint you will not find it listed as the new covenant in concordance. God made the new covenant to be within and man does not have to outwardly bring it in. God did that in the old covenants and man failed. When you are reborn it is ignited, turned on so to speak.
Cowboy up with Jesus: This seeking the Kingdom first and getting right with Jesus, riding your trial ride with Jesus, fellowshipping with Him along the way. CCR to be a GT. Getting right with Him when you fall out of your saddle, you get back on your horse and ride who you came with, not the stranger who beguiles you. Forgive those who trespass against you. Soak in His presence, bask in His love, letting Him have His way with you. Reconcile your life. MSG. Luke 18:1 Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit.
Crown: I like to refer to this as my retirement program in Heaven. My portfolio while on earth. 2Ti 4:6-8 My life is coming to an end, and it is now time for me to be poured out as a sacrifice to God. I have fought the good fight. I have completed the race. I have kept the faith. The prize that shows I have God's approval is now waiting for me. The Lord, who is a fair judge, will give me that prize on that day. He will give it not only to me but also to everyone who is eagerly waiting for him to come again. MSG Mat 25:34 "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Enter, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what's coming to you in this kingdom. It's been ready for you since the world's foundation. At the end life possessions are left in the world, then when we go to be with our Father, GW Jas 1:12 Blessed are those who endure when they are tested. When they pass the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. 1Cor. 9:25; Prov. 4:9.
Curses: Curses are the demonic marching orders, the legal right to torment. Generational Curse: Have you ever seen a family where the father has a problem with uncontrollable anger, his son seems to have been 'handed it', and the grandpa had the same problem? Or have you noticed that not only do you suffer from something such as persistent irrational fears or depression, but your mother and her father also suffered from it as well? There are many people today who are living under bondage that the sins of their forefathers has brought them under.
Curse: Comes from unresolved sin and transgression. Anger, fear, & sexual afflictions, etc. this is the root cause, the devil is behind it. A Curse is evident in a person's life by continued defeats, unseen resistance that seems to hinder your every decision and there is no obvious reason why. Patterns of struggle evident in your family whether it is inherit sickness or financial lack. A curse or a blessing is a word spoken with some particular form of spiritual power and authority either for good or evil that sets in motion something that will probably go on from generation to generation.
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. We are no longer affected by the curses in Deu. 28:8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 9 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
I do believe that the curse is to have no power in our lives and we have the right to be free. (Romans 6:16) Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? Then we have Paul the apostle warn us in Eph 4:27 "Nor give place to the devil". The word here for place is translated 'in roads, avenue, or opportunity'.
These are the sins of the fathers or Spirits of infirmity passed down through the family lines. The same devils that had an opportunity to work through those in your family through unresolved sin, witchcraft, alcohol, drugs, sex, and the spirit of false religion, still believe it has a right to you. Remember, all the curses in the verses Deut. 15-45 God has ordained to come upon your descendants forever or until there is repentance.
You break them by salvation and obedience to God. The good news is that once you accept Jesus, the transference of bondage stops from your ancestors by means of generational curses. You can no longer receive spiritual bondages in this manner from your parents once you accept Jesus! Speak and believe and it shall be done. Take authority and ask for God to touch you. Change you and use you. Learn to bind satan and his cronies, take dominion from them and loose Heaven’s rule, replace the rule of demonic kings in collusion with one another with Jesus’ dominion. He will rule with the iron scepter, for He is the king of kings. Then loose the demonic into the sea in the name of Jesus.
Put info from Blood transference. Work on this more on the past. Check “Past“, on this list. Je.17:5 Curse the man that trusteth in man. Gen. , Je.48:10; Jn.7:49;Je.11:3; Jer.17:3; Mal.3:9; Ga.3:10; The biggest curse is you not letting go of the past. What you plant has to be harvested and dealt with. There are family curses are brought on by something you do in sin or your ancestry did. There are curses from God penalties for sinners, so to speak… The generational curse was started by Adam and Eve. It has gathered in size and gotten worse as time goes by. It will not get better until Jesus comes back. In the mean time we must learn what the living word means to us in our daily battles in life. Remember your past does not equal your Godly future. It is your faith, commitment, and obedience that make it right. Our past influences our future if you do not forgive and let go, our future is what you are thinking today, the seeds you sow. Je.17:5 Curse the man that trusteth in man. Je.48:10; Jn.7:49;Je.11:3; Jer.17:3; Mal.3:9; Ga.3:10;
Death: Death is a mere door. To those who are alive it is a time of mourning.
“I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. … (John 16:20-22 NIV) Find comfort in loving one another and caring, in helping another we forget our own problems. Death is hard to receive, because we will miss those who passed on. Lean not, on to our own understanding, trust in the Lord. Psa 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; It is good to mourn and let go. Let us grieve and cry out to God, for a season. Seek one another for comfort and speak and give it to God. Then let there be a season for healing. Mat 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Mat 26:46 Rise, let us be going…Psa 126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Psa 126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him
“The pain in our heart, makes it hard to put on a smile, yet when the tears are done, seeds of weeping are sown. They are watered by our mourning, they tilled and nourished by our living…” Jim Bowline 2000.
If you are confounded in what to do, be busy about God’s work and ask what He wants of you. A saved soul there is no more pain in death, it is the exit from this world and entrance to the presence of God or hell depending upon your belief system. Ps116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. Refer: Ps.23:4; Ps.23:6; Prov.14:32; Jn.5:21; Jn.5:25; Jn.11:25-27; Jn.14:1-7; Rm.14:7-9; 1Thess.4:12-19; 1Cor.15:56,57; 11Cor.5:8; Phil1:21; Heb.2:14,15.
2Co_12:10; Phi_4:7; 1Pe_3:14; 1Pe_4:12-13.
Hate: This is a dislike somebody or something intensely: to dislike somebody or something intensely, often in a way that evokes feelings of anger, hostility, or animosity. I am here to tell you that hate only affects the one who hold it. Oh others may hear it, yet the one who holds it is devoured by it. It eats at their very soul and body. It can create disease and deteriorate our bodily functions. Pro 8:36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death. Psa 34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. Luk 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Healing: Isaiah 53:5, which is then quoted again in 1 Peter 2:24, is a key verse on healing that is often misunderstood and misapplied. “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). The word translated “healed” can mean either spiritual or physical healing. However, the contexts of Isaiah 53 and 1 Peter 2 make it clear that it is speaking of spiritual healing. 1 Peter 2:24 says, “He himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.” The verse is talking about sin and righteousness, not sickness and disease. Therefore, being “healed” is speaking of being forgiven and saved, not physically healed?
Hog wash, this is what is being taught today. My point here is don’t believe what pastors and people are saying, ask God. I say do not separate the two. Healing is both, read Mark 2:5-12 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven." The ministry of Jesus Christ was a ministry for the healing transformation and restoration of whole persons, whole churches, whole societies. Where demons possessed, he brought release; where fever raged, he laid a cool hand; where mustard seeds of faith scattered about his path among the lame and the leper, he raised up “trees” of the healed and the whole who re-seeded hope and birthed the church. Where the outcast drew water, Jesus made sure to show up with more to drink than she asked for or expected. Jesus did not separate the salvation and the healing, He simply said in many cases, you are forgiven. Think of salvation, healing and love is faith. So say scriptures aloud and have compassion. If you are not sure ask for it before you pray. Look up your healing scriptures in concordances and online.
Healing Miracle: Healing by laying on hands or speaking and a miracle happens this is only done for the showing the miraculous power and for the Glory of God. If it does not happen then this incident should be healed by other means. God heals in many ways. In an instant and maybe one’s own hand through guidance of God and by God. Then there is healing through people like the health professions and by the medical professions. No matter all healing it is done by God. The healing is for us to see God at work and the glory is His not ours. We must pray continuously until healing is complete, cease not, of prayer power. Research and discern this yourself. Mar. 1:30-32 But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her. And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them. And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils. It takes more than healing an illness sometimes, it takes driving out unclean spirits. It also takes faith. This instruction I am directing you to is probably one of the most important lessons for us all in our walk, behind ‘seek the kingdom first‘. Mark 11:22-26 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. What I see here is compassion, love. Like I have said many times, pray, pray, pray with faith and picture it has been done and cease not from praying, until you hear from God or what you pray for has manifested. The Bible actually gives us some directions on how to pray for healing. For example, in James 5:14-15 we are told: "Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15) And the prayer offered in faith ( in love ) will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven." and in James 5:16 we are asked to "confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed." and then told that "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." In Mark 11:23-25 Jesus further instructs to forgive when we pray "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, `Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24) Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25) And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins." Prov 3:7…………Do not be wise in your own eyes: fear the Lord and depart from evil. Prov 3:8…………It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones. Ex 15:26…………I am the Lord who heals you. Ps 103:3………..Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases… Follow this up in your study with more than just these scriptures I have given you, here a few more. Mar.1:31; Act.9:40, Act.9:41.
So engage, embrace and enjoy; Open the door from Heaven to earth, be the conduit of love, then speak your prayer aloud and say it with compassion and forgiveness in creating salvation and glory for God. Otherwise saints “When the miraculous power of God is necessary, let it be resorted too; when not necessary, let the ordinary means be used.” To act otherwise would be to tempt God. I pray you understand what I am attempting to say. Yet this is my opinion, ask your Holy Spirit.
Hearing God: What if I told you that you already do, it is all about recognition of it, learning to hear and tuning in to His frequency. Put in scriptures
Heaven: What the bible says about heaven; 1Cor.2:9 No mere man has ever seen, heard or even imagined what wonderful things God has ready for those who love the Lord. Rev. 21:4 Now the dwelling of God is with men and He will live with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Jer.33:3 Call on me and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest me. Deu. 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live. Rom. 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. Rom. 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. Rom. 6:8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Rom. 6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. Rom. 6:10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Rom. 6:11Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Rom. 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Rom. 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
Hell; 1. A place of punishment after death: according to many religions, the place where the souls of people who are damned suffer eternal punishment after death 2. or hell or Helldevilish power: according to some religions, Satan or the powers of evil that live in hell 3. underworld: according to some religions, the place where the spirits of all people go after death.
The Bible says: Hell hel (see SHEOL; HADES; GEHENNA) 1. The Word in the King James Version. The English word, from a Teutonic root meaning “to hide” or “cover,” had originally the significance of the world of the dead generally, and in this sense is used by Chaucer, Spenser, etc., and in the Creed (“He descended into hell”); compare the English Revised Version Preface. Now the word has come to mean almost exclusively the place of punishment of the lost or finally impenitent; the place of torment of the wicked. In the King James Version of the Scriptures, it is the rendering adopted in many places in the Old Testament for the Hebrew word she'ōl (in 31 out of 65 occurrences of that word it is so translated), and in all places, save one (1Co_15:55) in the New Testament, for the Greek word Hades (this word occurs 11 times; in 10 of these it is translated “hell”; 1Co_15:55 reads “grave,” with “hell” in the margin). In these cases the word has its older general meaning, though in Luk_16:23 (parable of Rich Man and Lazarus) it is specially connected with a place of “torment,” in contrast with the “Abraham's bosom” to which Lazarus is taken (Luk_16:22. Jesus said Mt. 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
David said; Psa. 63:9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth. There are many scriptures research and study, I believe there is such a place after my research. I believe it is where evil presides and those who await the final judgment that are not saved.
Holiness: Read GW Rom. 11:16 If the first handful of dough is holy, the whole batch of dough is holy. If the root is holy, the branches are holy. this gives you the simplicity of holy. Understand holiness is given by grace of God, you don’t earn it of have to ask for it, just accept it, then work at molding yourself by sanctification. Holiness is to set apart, one has to make a commitment, taking a step of no return, growing up, from just being a saint to being the elect, a mature saint. Work at being pure at heart using wisdom in purity of God. Be the clay in God’s hands. Do your best in doing things in holiness. Holiness is: Sanctified, Saintliness; holy in character. Giving it all to God and being dedicated in Godliness; Divine perfection, God’s righteousness, the absence of the unrighteous. Holy to me is a gift like our salvation and Holy Spirit, all we have to do is take the step of no return. Read the verses under Holy. Read and discern; Heb. 10:17-126 & James 3:17; Rom. 11:16; Rom. 14:17; Now go on to: Ex.15:11 Who is like unto thee; O Lord, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders. Rom. 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Leviticus 11:44 “ For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." Ps.99:9; Ps.145:17; Isa.6:3; Rev.15:4; I hear some people that to be holy means to be odd, or to be completely sacred. I am don’t think that way. It is my opinion that it takes on something more human, for us through our Holy Spirit. It means we're to be different in our actions and responses, which comes from in our hearts. We have too many Christians doing unbiblical things who claim to be holy and in reality they are just odd. Live not in sin or by religion or the law, live through & by your Holy Spirit. I truly believe holiness is a gift and has to be nourished by goodness in our walk, being kind, giving, and loving coming from our heart. Plain ole doing the right thing in response in and to life.
Holy: Read Holiness: Read Rom. 11:16 this gives you the simplicity of holy. Read these scriptures surely holy or holiness will be instilled in your mind.

Holy Spirit: 2 Tim. 1:6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. John 14:26-27 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. You are given the Gift of the Holy Spirit when you are saved, in receiving Jesus in your heart and have been immersed in water baptism, as John baptized Jesus. You receive His gifts as you walk and need to be equipped, for God does not call the qualified, He qualifies you. Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Lk. 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? We can know that the Holy Spirit is indeed a Person because He possesses a mind, emotions, and a will. The Holy Spirit thinks and knows (1 Corinthians 2:10). The Holy Spirit can be grieved (Ephesians 4:30). The Spirit intercedes for us (Romans 8:26-27). The Holy Spirit makes decisions according to His will (1 Corinthians 12:7-11). The Holy Spirit is God, the third “Person” of the Trinity. As God, the Holy Spirit can truly function as the Comforter and In John 14:16- 17, Jesus gives them a statement of great encouragement: "And I will ask the Father (pray), and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever . . . the Spirit of Truth" (NIV). You can see He is your gift from God, again I say, after you are saved, reborn. Read about reborn, Nicodemus in Matthew; The Holy Spirit is the third part of the Godhead this is how God is always with you. He is your comforter, communicator, & your guide to the ways of God. I like to say He is the best customer relations man there is, He is your prompter, discerner, & your director to life and the interpreter of the living word. For He is our Gentlemen spirit. You can call upon Him by prayer and/or worship. After you speak your prayer be silent and Listen. You must obey God, and ask in faith, ask to receive; Know, you cannot use Him; He uses you and your vessel when He comes, He resides in you. You share the same vessel, temple, body. He lives with in us and equips us to communicate with God Prov. 1:23 Turn you at My reproof: Behold, I will pour out My Spirit unto you, I will make known My Words unto you. and receive God’s answers and His purpose is to help us be an effective witness. Rm. 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. Rom. 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. You can become the sword against satan and his rule, we are equipped to take authority and dominion when you live by the Spirit. He is a healer, your communicator of the Trinity, and speaks in tongues; Which you may or may not do. Which is OK if you have a relationship with Him. Read Acts 1:8; 5:32; 19:6; Lk.11:13; Gal.3:14; Prov.1:23; Jn.14:16,17; Jn.4:14; Rom.14:17; Ezek.36:27
Hope Rom 5:2-5 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. In Matthew Jesus says Keep a knocking… he said to us knock and it shall open and it shall be given to you. Endurance, perseverance, & keeping on keeping on, brings God's approval, and His approval creates hope. “Hope” in Scripture means “a strong and confident expectation.” Rom 8:24-25 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Prov.23:18 For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off. H.O.P.E. H Heaven O opens P People E Enter. Truly there is really a future, and your hope will never be cut off. Jesus says, “…those who hope in ‘Me’ will not be disappointed.”
Humble; 1. modest: modest and unassuming in attitude and behavior
2. respectful: feeling or showing respect and deference toward other people.
Humility is an accurate understanding of who we are before God. Be humble and not proud. Submit thy vengeful & angry soul, submit your pride to God, for He will give you grace and call you humble. How can you love or learn when your thought is, I am better than that ??? Be not high, submit your pride. Proud is loud, not right. Humbleness is being meek. What does this really mean? It means you recognize your place in God’s Kingdom and who you are to Him and in honoring God. Knowing what your mission and purpose is in His kingdom. If you do not ask Him, it is that simple. This is not being week, it is being in the wisdom of God. Don’t blame or point your finger at someone else. Be accountable. Humility is freedom from being in pride; it is part of being meek. James 4:6 He giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resist the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Ex.1:1; 2Chr.34:27; Prov.6:3; Col.3:12
1Pet. 5:5-8 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Humility; “All of you, serve each other in humility, for God sets himself against the proud, but he shows favor to the humble.” (1 Peter 5:5 NLT)
Being humble is not being weak, it is a sign of authority and the God’s hierarchy. modest, showing respect, it is a human virtue that grows from an understanding of who we are and not. It is my opinion, it is the proper perception of the relationship between God the Creator and man, that is humility. Read Phil. 2:5-11.The lack of it is from man’s misunderstanding of the invitation God has given us to share His good pleasure and love. God invited us into His home to enjoy, not take it over. Humility is respectfulness and honoring God by submitting yourself to Him. An absence of your pride. It’s the quality of being modest or respectful … Submitting to God and having the identity in Jesus in you accepting who God says you are. It is not thinking less of yourself it’s more in that you start thinking more of God, our Abba. It is you become in more of agreement with God and the more dependent upon Him, this is Christ like humility. It is God’s job to solve the problems of the world or being the collector of debt. Whether it be in your immediate world around you or abroad. It is our job to listen to God and to be obedient, being totally dependent upon Him for everything. When you are in CCR all the time you become a GT.
The biblical approach to humility means you understand exactly who you are in Christ, more importantly… you understand exactly whose you are, and that God has placed you where He wants you, not where you want to be. In this way, your humility is not attached to your thinking and your self-esteem.
The first approach is consciously acting as if we are humble; we create a false humility by trying to imitate what we think humility looks like.
• The second approach is to assume we’re not worthy, that we’re some how second class.
Neither of these approaches reflects authentic biblical humility. The biblical approach to humility means you understand exactly who you are – but more importantly – you understand exactly whose you are, and that God has placed you where he wants you, for such a time as this.
In this way, your humility is not attached to your self-esteem.
In other words, rather than trying to think less of yourself, think more of God. You begin to agree with his view of you and that you are totally dependent upon him.
From this emerges a Christ-like humility. You’re no longer burdened by having to know all the answers or be in control of everything.
What does this mean?
• Dependence requires humility – You will succeed in your purpose because of who God is, not because of who you are. God loves you and wants you to succeed; he will support you in your mission for him, not because you pretend toward perfection, but because he knows you can’t succeed without him.
• Humility leads to purpose – As you move toward dependence (a biblical humility) on God, he gives you his strength for any task before you – to take the steps of faith required to complete your purpose. For such a time as this, God created you, prepared you, and called you to share the Good News.
Hurt: Injured, experiencing pain. Hurting people, hurt people. You may not be able to change your past. I believe pain and suffering is a way of purification. Know you can be a participant in shaping your future. Give it to God. Be obedient to Him and His word. If you could grasp what I am about to tell you, your walk would be with more understanding and your mind will accept renewing easier. The world has a curse on it and you are not of the world. (The curse was brought about by satan in the garden.) You only live here under these conditions for a season. Jesus is returning to clean house. Then we shall inherit the earth forever in righteousness, no more satan. If you cannot accept this, then ask God to reveal it to you. Read and research for this truth. Yet, even though we are under Adams curse; We can renew and be released from it. Now, we all get our feeling hurt some time or another, even our soul gets deep wounds of un-forgiveness. We have to heal ourselves. Only we can do that through the healing and washing of the Blood of Jesus. By repenting, asking for deliverance and toss it in the lost lake.
Identity in Christ: Philippians 4:6-7 [Paul writing to the church in Philippi]
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by praise and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard you hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” "Understanding your identity in Christ is absolutely essential to your success at ... I have direct access to the throne of grace through Jesus Christ. ... essential in overcoming fear. In Christ, we have solutions to our problems (Ephesians 1:3-23). By having access to His name and credit, our spiritual obligations are paid, and our legal problems with the law of God are cleared (2:1-10).
Immutable; Heb 6:18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: This what God is; unchanging or unchangeable: not changing or not able to be changed.
Inheritance: Eph 1:14 This Holy Spirit is the guarantee that we will receive our inheritance. We have this guarantee until we are set free to belong to him. God receives praise and glory for this. Eph_1:14; Psa_37:18; Act_20:32; Rom_8:17; Gal_3:18; Col_1:12, Col_3:24; Tit_3:7; Jam_2:5; 1Pe_1:4, 1Pe_3:9
Integrity; Psa 7:8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
The dictionary says integrity is: possession of firm principles: the quality of possessing and steadfastly adhering to high moral principles or professional standards. Boy this is what I call Identity of Jesus, that is my integrity, knowing who you are in Him and adhering to Him. This is what makes you shine in life. No middle ground, standing on the word of God without mediocrity. Pro 20:7 The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.
Intimate Relationship, with God; Being involved with God privately, personally, alone yet together, lovingly, caringly, embracing personally. I cannot say enough about this and how important it is in your walk. It is what I call CCR. MSG 1Jn 4:15 Everyone who confesses that Jesus is God's Son participates continuously in an intimate relationship with God.
Issues: The central most prevalent topic or concerns in your life.
"And don't be wishing you were someplace else or with someone else. Where you are is God's place for you. Live and obey and love and believe right there. God, not your marital status, defines your life." I Corinthians 7:17 (MSG)
Issues of the heart will be there no matter if you have a relationship or not, whether you are married or not. No matter where you are at. Whether it be in the mind or a location. You are where you are because God has placed you there. Learn to have joy in where you are. This will take you closer to change of scenery. Take one day at a time with God as your lamp. Stop looking for the perfect match or the word to knock you in the head, the answer comes as a whisper, not a loud gong. Women there is no prince on a white horse who is going to resolve all your problems on this planet. There is only one Prince who is on a white horse and that is Jesus, that can resolve the issues in your life. Don‘t look to change them into what you want, turn it over to God. Men there is no perfect woman who is going to get your drink and find the remote for you. Wake up people and smell the fragrance of Jesus and you will find what you need. There is no one answer fits all. You need Jesus in all things. He is your answer man, by your Holy Spirit. Depend on Jesus for resolve
Jesus names of; Jesus Christ; Research this, here are a few: Yeshua or Jesus, I could write pages and pages, even a book. Savior - Jesus is the Redeemer - "One who frees or delivers another from difficulty, danger, or bondage, usually by the payment of a ransom price."1 In the New Testament, Jesus is viewed as the ultimate Redeemer who gave His life as a ransom (Mark 10:45, Titus 2:14). Light of the World - Jesus is the Person who brings true knowledge of God. Those who reject this light bring judgment upon themselves (John 8:12; 3:19-21). Lamb of God - This title refers to the Old Testament sacrificial system where God accepted the blood of animals as atonement for sin (John 1:29, 36). Jesus' blood made atonement for sin! Ruler of Creation - Christ existed before the creation of the world and He is sovereign over it (Revelation 3:14). Prince of Peace, Wonderful, Counselor, King of kings, Lord of lords, …Lion of Judah A title of the Messiah Revelation 5:5, google the names of Jesus you will find many names. There is something about that name, Yeshua… oh how I love that name.
Jewels for the pocket; Rom. 8:37 “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth thee.; A man is rich according to what he is, not by what he has. Prov.13:7 There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing; there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches. He who counts his blessings and not his money is a rich man. "It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ...he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone." Ephesians 1:11 (Msg). Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Mark 11:22-26 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. Jer. 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end You are the head, not the tail. Be the victor not the victim,
Joy: sim-khaw' From H8056; blithesomeness or glee, (religious or festival): - X exceeding (-ly), gladness, joy (-fulness), mirth, pleasure, rejoice (-ing). This a day God has made and I choose to have joy in it. Verse.. Act 2:28 You've got my feet on the life-path, with your face shining sun-joy all around. Bible “joy,” happiness or enjoyment, especially accompanied by laughter “gladness,” “mirth”; from sāmēah, properly “to be bright,” “to shine” (Pro_13:9, “The light of the righteous rejoiceth,” literally, “is bright”), generally used figuratively “to rejoice,” “be glad”. Joy is something that is seen as a source of happiness, we as saints it is of the spiritual kind.
Knew: GW Psa 139:13 You alone created my inner being. You knitted me together inside my mother. GW Jer 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart for my holy purpose. I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations." God made and knew you before you where ever formed. He made plans for you. Each of us were given a measure of Christ. Read and study Eph. 4:7-13. Knew also means an intimacy or sexual encounter.
Kingdom of God: The dictionary says a kingdom is = king•dom n 1. monarch’s territory: a state or people ruled over by a king or queen 2. sphere of activity: a realm or area of activity in which a particular thing is thought to dominate the kingdom of professional tennis or like the magic kingdom of Disney. 3. science highest classification for natural things: any of the three groups, animal, vegetable, and mineral, into which natural organisms and objects are traditionally, as opposed to scientifically, divided. 4. Rule of a deity, God over angels and saints of His Kingdom realm. Mt.6:33 …seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Seeking Him and His word and being a doer in stewardship in demonstrating His love. All that He says in the word will be given unto you. Mt.19:26 With God all things are possible. Being a God chaser in your Kingdom. It is my opinion that the bible says the Kingdom of God is, His rule over the angels & saints who give up their (choice) free will and surrender to God’s love, demonstrating His circle of Love. Kingdom of God in my perspective is having dual citizenship here on earth and being seated in heavenly places. Emulating Jesus, which gives you Kingdom Ambition. This first takes place in your heart, then your life and connecting by interacting with His kingdom of saints here on earth who work collectively as the church on earth, in harmony and love of God by connecting and interacting with the Kingdom of Heaven in emulating Jesus by understanding the Trinity and your dependence on them, understanding the Trinity, and satan’s principality. Then using the principles controlling it satan and his principality and ways and followers, developing by sanctification in your walk by and of the Gospels of Jesus Christ, while demonstrating the book of Hebrews, the teachings of Paul ,and the entire bible in His entire realm. This study will give you the understanding of this whole paragraph. Learning what the Circle of Love is all about. (What Jesus did for us, salvation and forgiveness).
Law, God’s laws: There is righteous and unrighteous. Because of transgression and man‘s inability to handle it, Man’s pride and the nature of man, God had to make legislation to uphold righteousness. The beginning Law was the “Ten Commandments”. Ex.20:1-17; One must learn; Heb 7:19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. By man’s disobedience God had to bring in legislation, the law, the ten commands and the laws of Moses. Jesus made the way for the new covenant and for the Holy Spirit to live with in to live with because the legislation did not work. Hmmm kind of like today, man just ignores the law. Man shall not live by the letter, or by what is written, or by the law alone, we shall be made alive in living by our Holy Spirit. Living this way is learning sanctification. The new covenant Jesus has birthed by His death and resurrection, the law is written onto the Holy Spirit. 2Co 3:5-6 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. Living by the Holy Spirit, one is living by God and not just by spirit. For some spirits are not of God. Rm.7:6; Rm. 8:2-4; Mt. 1:6; Jam 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: Jam 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. 26 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.
Let it go; Look under forgiveness also. I hear in my head Charlton Heston, “let my people go” Saints we have to learn to let go of the past. God has already forgiven you, that is why He died on the cross. Sin is dead once and for all those who have salvation in the belief of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He tossed them in the lost lake why don’t you? The old hurts become cancerous if you do not let go. Your future does not equal the past. Your future is what you sow today… Phi 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
Life issues and resolve; Problems, personal subject of concern. This has to do with forgiveness also. Read Eph. & James What seeds do you sow?
Living Sacrifice; Submitting to God and giving Him your will and rights. Surrendering your old man and ways. Rom. 12 Renew back to Sozo.
Living Word; The Living word is written in the bible. Each Book has verse that pertains to your life in some way. As you seek, it becomes a Way for your life. It is the solution to any problem you have. Ii is my opinion that many churches are suffering a famine because their pulpits are not feeding or encouraging heavenly bread to their flocks. If you are not feeding on the Bible daily, you are either not saved, or you are dying of spiritual malnutrition. The only strength we have is found when we feed upon the Word of God. Mt. 4:4 B … It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Loneliness; Pro.107:9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Pro.12:25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop; but a good word maketh it glad. For whatever you seek pray for it cast it to God and then go out and give it until you receive it. Volunteer, seek friends and family and give them love. Lift the spirit of the elderly. Learn to have that personal relationship with Him and be lonely no more. Talk to Jesus and give all to Him.
Mark 4:34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples. Know that when we are lonely it is that there is something wrong with the our spirit. I say when things are not right go to God and stay there until He brings you out of it. Pray, pray, pray.
Lost Articles or People: When I loose something, I use these verses, say them and give it to God. Great tool; Lk.8:17 ”For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.” 1Cor.2:10 “…but God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit…” Mt.10:26b “…for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.”
Love: It all boils down to honor. Who and what you honor to influence your life. God is love and when you Honor Him you receive Him.
There is three kinds of love; Agape love, failsafe love (God like), Brotherly love (Philos), and Romantic conjugal love (Aeros). Remember this my friends; Loves is, friendship on fire with the Holy Spirit.
The world robs us of love. Love is a many splendor thing: Read step 6; Relationships is what it is all about, love. If you do not do anything else in your walk know this, God’s love is the hub of understanding in all His word and works. Learn what the true meaning is of God’s love and you hold the key to all His words.
Look at marriage under the M’s. Love is not just a feeling. Love is more than a feeling. Love needs to be a living and growing thing, it is not just a feeling that happens on it‘s own. Love is learning to be a servant to one another. It takes positive actions to make it felt by others or that special someone. The same applies to God and Jesus. Jn.15:12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Showing your love by actions of obedience and I promise love will grow in your relationship with Jesus. Love luv (אהב, 'āhēbh, אהבה, 'ahăbhāh, noun; φιλέω, philéō, ἀγαπάω, agapáō, verb; ἀγάπη, agápē, noun): Love to both God and man is fundamental to true religion, whether as expressed in the Old Testament or the New Testament. Jesus Himself declared that all the law and the prophets hang upon love (Mat_22:40; Mar_12:28-34). Paul, in his matchless ode on love (1Co_13:1-13), makes it the greatest of the graces of the Christian life - greater than speaking with tongues, or the gift of prophecy, or the possession of a faith of superior excellence; for without love all these gifts and graces, desirable and useful as they are in themselves, are as nothing, certainly of no permanent value in the sight of God. God’ Love: What does it mean that God is love? First we will look at how God's Word, the Bible, describes "love," and then we will see a few ways that it applies to God. "Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not want what belongs to others. It does not brag. It is not proud. It is not rude. It does not look out for its own interests. It does not easily become angry. It does not keep track of other people's wrongs. Love is not happy with evil; but it is full of joy when the truth is spoken. It always protects. It always trusts. It always hopes. It never gives up. Love never fails" (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a). Study the promise and Trinity in Hebrews. If you understand the Greek Sozo and God’s love it is a lot easier to follow His commandments and principles because you understand the Kingdom.
Do we stop and take time to Love? Do we stop and realize about time? Hmmm I realize time is way to slow, when we wait. Yet moves to fast for who fear, it seems like forever when we grieve, and it is way to short when we are in joy and happiness… yet for those of us who really love, time is eternity.
Satan hates love; There is a disease that everyone has to overcome and you get it from satan and the world. It is called worldly thinking, which is corruption to the soul of a Christian. The worse part of this disease is the “Me” syndrome. Part yourself from this so you can love; Forgiving, helping, and loving one another; Anyone who falls in love can get up and get out, anyone who grows in love, grows roots into it and is more likely to stay put. Give what you want to receive, sow what you want to reap. Love is affirming, accepting, affection, appreciation and experience, it is encoragement and commitment. It is obeying God command to love one another, as He loves us. That is unconditionally. Most of all casting your cares to God. Jn.15:12 This is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Rm.13:10 Rm.12:10; Rm. 15:7; Gal. 6:10; 1Thess. 5:11&12; Eph.4:32; Col.2:2 Col.3:13,14; Col. 4:12; 1Thess.3:12,13; Eph. 3:18&19.
luv-ing-kind´nes (חסד, ḥeṣedh): “Lovingkindness” in the King James Version always represents this word (30 times), but of ḥeṣedh there are many other renderings, e.g. “mercy” (frequently), “kindness” (38), “goodness” (12). The word is derived from ḥāṣadh, meaning, perhaps, “to bend or bow oneself,” “to incline oneself”; hence, “to be gracious or merciful.” the English Revised Version has not many changes. Yet in the American Standard Revised Version “lovingkindness” is invariably employed when ḥeṣedh is used of God, and, as a rule, “kindness” when it is used of man, as in Gen_21:23; Jdg_1:24 (the King James Version “mercy,” the Revised Version (British and American) “deal kindly”); Rth_3:10; 2Ch_32:32; 2Ch_35:26 The word “lovingkindness” does not occur in the New Testament, but as its equivalents we have such terms as “mercy” “goodness,” “kindness,” “brotherly love”.
Lying; Ananias is putting himself in harms way. I am not saying he is blaspheme, yet I challenge you to start thinking what ways are there in making this unpardonable sin. Be care of lying and of ignoring the Holy Spirit, does make you in denial of Him? Read Acts 5:3-5, look up scripture on lying, untruths spoken from your lips… being careful of every seed you sow.
Act 5:3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. 5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
Marriage: Please read step 6; Take a test to see if you both are ready for commitment and you are truly in love. Marriage is an important tool that God created to promote family for the stewardship of His word and love, then when we are obedient we are blessed with the intimacy of the passion of knowing each other in a way God intended. Marriage is becoming one in flesh seeking God, being a servant to one another and giving up one’s rights, entering into a lifetime covenance with God and each other of love.
Please read each verse and meditate, do not skip this step, please. Gen. 2:18-24; Deut. 24:5; Mt.19:4-6; 1 Cor. 7: 1-16; Colossians 3:18,19; Hebrews 13:4-7; Mark 10:6-9. Ecc 4:9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. Remember this in all times for it is the basis of your union, two are better than one…1 Cor. 7:1-2 ... It is good for a man not to marry. But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. (NIV) Mk.10:8 this is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Mk.10:9b And they twain shall be one flesh; so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder. Eph.5:21-33; Eph.5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. Gen.2:24; Prov.12:4 Prov.18:22; Ecc.9:9 Heb.13:4; Isa.34:16; 1Cor.7:2; Col.3:18,19 Eph.5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. Prov.19:32; Phil.2:2
Prayer for Lovers; Oh Father in Heaven we come to You in supplication. We praise and worship “You” for “You” are the most High. May Christ dwell in our hearts through faith in “You”, being rooted and grounded in love, and that we may be filled with all the fullness of “You”. Sweet Abba we commit to “You” and each other in our love. According to “Your” word, we will adapt ourselves in a covenant with “You”& each other, in respect, honor, a respecter & doer of the word, we will commit in giving significance in “You” & each other. We commit to keeping in touch with each other’s love language in keeping our hearts full of love. That we firmly stand by each others side through good or bad, through sickness and health, through sadness and joy; and being united in spirit and purpose; Rebuking evil and his ways. Casting our will and lives to “You” daily; for we know the joy of the morning and the forgiveness of the night. Father “You” say in the word that a wise, understanding, and prudent wife is from “You”, and he who finds a true wife finds a good thing and obtains favor of “You”. By our stewardship of the Living Word, faith, prudence & meekness we have found favor in “Your” sight. Father, we praise “You”, we thank “You”, for these words and knowing “You” will watch over them; We live, and will be fruitful for “You, Sweet Jesus”; We will teach our children of “Your word” to hand down to the generations. We will harvest the willing who come. Now unto God and our Abba be glory to glory forever and ever… In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
Measure of faith & understanding; Proportion Faith: Read GW Mark 4: 23-30. Understanding what I am conveying right now is one of the most important secrets to one’s love walk in life so listen up, concentrate, & focus. Let me whisper in your ear; these scriptures reveal a lot if the person who has ears to discerns what he hears! Jesus said "Pay attention to what you're listening to! Your knowledge will be measured out to you by the measure of attention you give to what you hear by your obedience. What a glorious revelation, this is the way to have knowledge increase. If you can understand these mysteries you will be given more knowledge. Mark 4:24 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given. Eph. 4:7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Rom. 12:6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; John 3:34; Rom. 12:3; Acts 18:24-28; 2Cor. 8:12; Phi.3:15; Rom. 12:6; 1Cor. 4:7; 1Cor. 12:7-11; 2Cor. 12:13; Eph. 4:7, Eph. 4:13; Eph. 4:16.
Meditation: Webster says, closed thought, pondering, consideration. My definition is studying from with in spirituality, focusing in your mind on God, shutting out the world. I believe meditation is pondering wise thinking, & renewing your mind with Jesus. I like what Paul said in Rom.12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. One must do as 1Cor.2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. Renewing your mind, and delighting in it. Ps.1:2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and his law do meditate day and night. Ps.10434 My meditation of Him shall be sweet; I will be glad in the Lord. Through meditation comes a spiritual mind by renewing it through Jesus. You can renew your mind by being still, to hear and focusing on God and His word; Praying & listening in silence, becoming intimate with God, clearing your mind from the world noise and hussle. This is a good way to unwind from your day. I start & end my day in meditation and being still to hear the word from God: Josh.1:8,9 "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; yet thou shalt meditate therein day and night. That thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success". This next verse is explaining meditation purpose. Psalm 19:14 states, "Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight..." to me it says, words are not worth anything if one does not meditate on them from the heart, one is not acceptable without the other. More; Jos.1:8; Ps. 1:2; 63:6; 77:12; 119:15, 23, 48, 148; 143:5; 1 Tim. 4:15; Meditation is used in Psalm 5:1; 19:14; 49:3; 104:34; 119:97, 99.
Meek: Webster says; mid-tempered; humble. I say; from what I have learned from the bible is; imitating Jesus, also Moses was called the most meek man on earth. Jesus was strength under control. He could call down legions of angels, yet He did not. He walked with the power of God under control with God’s wisdom directing Him. It is kinda like a wild stallion who has been broken and bridled. He has not lost the passion for life, just focused on the important things in it, God’s way. Surrender, humbled to God’s love, slow to anger, the salt of the earth, Godliness, a fruit of the spirit, humble, one who shares, a steward & doer of righteousness, staying under the word and being in control that is meekness, it is not weakness. Moses was meek after his visit with God on the mountain. When Moses was confronted in life with a problem; he fell to his knees and talked to God. He had an God experience that changed him. He was a keeper or steward of God’s word, & most of all “a doer of God’s word”. Believe me you did not want to cross his path concerning the word of God. It was God’s way or no way. Mt.11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Gal.5:22,23; Zep.2:3; 2Ti.2:25; Ps.22:26; Mt.5:5; 2C0.10:1. Men of meekness Moses, David, Jeremiah, Stephen, Paul, & Jim. Jim? Jim Who? LOL Cowboy-up with Jesus and walk in control.
Mercy & Grace: He gives grace and mercy because of His love for us. Remember Mercy is getting what you deserve and Grace is getting what God deserves and not what we deserve. Mercy you work it out. Grace you are delivered. Grace enables, the Law demands that you are required. In Grace it is the who that lives in you, that stands in for you. Unbelief is what drives us to betrayal. Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Mercy is kindness or forgiveness shown to an offender or to somebody a person has power over. easing of distress: the easing of distress or pain. In the word it says; Mercy; Merciful mu^r´si, mu^r´si-fool (חסר, ḥeṣedh, רחם, rāḥam, חנן, ḥānan; ἔλεος, éleos, ἐλεέω, eleéō, οἰκτιρμός, oiktirmós): “Mercy” is a distinctive Bible word characterizing God as revealed to men.
In the Old Testament it is most often the translation of ḥeṣedh, “kindness,” “loving-kindness” (see LOVINGKINDNESS), but raḥămīm, literally, “bowels” (the sympathetic region), and ḥānan, “to be inclined to,” “to be gracious,” are also frequently translated “mercy”; eleos, “kindness,” “beneficence,” and eleéō, “to show kindness,” are the chief words rendering “mercy” in the New Testament; oiktirmos, “pity,” “compassion,” occurs a few times, also oiktírmōn, “pitiful,” eleḗmōn, “kind,” “compassionate,” twice; híleōs, “forgiving,” and aníleōs, “not forgiving,” “without mercy,” once each (Heb_8:12; Jam_2:13). (1) Mercy is (a) an essential quality of God (Exo_34:6, Exo_34:7; Deu_4:31; Psa_62:12, etc.); it is His delight (Mic_7:18, Mic_7:20; Psa_52:8); He is “the Father of mercies” (2Co_1:3), “rich in mercy” (Eph_2:4), “full of pity, and merciful” (Jam_5:11). (2) “Mercy” is used of man as well as of God, and is required on man's part toward man and beast (Deu_25:4; Psa_37:21; Psa_109:16; Pro_12:10; Dan_4:27; Mic_6:8; Mat_5:7, “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy”; 25:31-46; Luk_6:36, “Be ye merciful, even as your Father is merciful”; Luk_10:30 f, the Good Samaritan; Luk_14:12-16; Jam_3:17).
(3) In the New Testament “mercy” (eleos, usually the Septuagint translation of ḥeṣedh) is associated with “grace” (cháris) in the apostolical greetings and elsewhere. Trench points out that the difference between them is that the freeness of God's love is the central point of charis, while eleos has in view misery and its relief; charis is His free grace and gift displayed in the forgiveness of sins - extended to men as they are guilty; His eleos (is extended to them) as they are miserable. The lower creation may be the object of His mercy (eleos), but man alone of His grace (charis); he alone needs it and is capable of receiving it (Synonyms of the New Testament, 163 f).
(4) From all the foregoing it will be seen that mercy in God is not merely His pardon of offenders, but His attitude to man, and to the world generally, from which His pardoning mercy proceeds. The frequency with which mercy is enjoined on men is specially deserving of notice, with the exclusion of the unmerciful from sonship to the all-merciful Father and from the benefits of His mercifulness. Shakespeare's question, “How canst thou hope for mercy rendering none?” is fully warranted by our Lord's teaching and by Scripture in general; compare especially the parable of the Unmerciful Servant (Mat_18:21-35).
Money Add to this Money is mention many times in the bible. The word says it is not the money that is the root of all evil, it is the making it your god, it is loving it more than all else… 1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. Money is important God wants us to have it and use it wisely. Put I scripture about burying the money…
Mark 11:22-26 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Motive: The very reason you do something or act. The reason for the way you behave. Read and study Pro 16:1-9 The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD. All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established. The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him. Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right. A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
Mourning; See also death; “I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. … (John 16:20-22 NIV). Experiencing great sorrow, mourning sin or death, mourning the end of a relationship. Find comfort in loving one another and caring, in helping another we forget our own problems. Death is hard to receive, because we will miss those who passed on. Lean not, on to our own understanding, trust in the Lord. It is good to mourn and let go. Let us grieve and cry out to God, for a season. Seek one another for comfort and speak and give it to God. Then let there be a season for healing. Mat 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Mat 26:46 Rise, let us be going…Psa 126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Psa 126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him . Isaiah 43:2 (TLB) “When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown” Psa 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; Ecc 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. 9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? 10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. 11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. 12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
“The pain in our heart, makes it hard to put on a smile, yet when the tears are done, seeds of weeping are sown. The pains are watered by our mourning, they are tilled and nourished by forgiving and by our living…” Jim Bowline 2000.
Murmuring: 1Cor.10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Phil. 2:14 do all things without murmurings and disputings. When you are murmuring you block blessings. Read the book of James and pay attention to bridling. Words have power, speak with thought. Even in joking, I think we think joking gives us a license. Be careful of what you are saying, you are sowing seeds. Complaining or grumbling only hurts you. It is a person who is dissatisfied and speaks under their breath, a lowly voice. God hears and sees all, knows all. When explaining to someone about something that happened and was upsetting, say it once and let it go is explanation. For if you go about to another and another telling them of your hurt, you are murmuring or gossiping. This is sowing something you will not like to harvest later in a season. For God will bring it back to you, for your growth.
Mysteries of God: Mmmmm the possibilities. Mystery is good it intrigues us to investigate to get to know God. People there is no way I can adequately explain this to everyone’s satisfaction. My answer is to ask God for understanding. One day in Heaven it will truly be answered. God is infinitely greater than we are, He is the one true trail boss, ranch foreman in the sky who we cannot see,,, so to speak. Therefore we should not expect to be able to fully understand Him. The trinity is a mystery and your walk unravels it, the more of a relationship with the Trinity the less of a mystery. The more you soak in the presence of God, the more of His love is on the inside the more you understand. By this new perceptions of what you read and see and hear change, unravels the mystery.
The Bible is our only true written source, it teaches that the Father is God, that Jesus is God, and that the Holy Spirit is God. The Bible also teaches that there is only one God. By this one must understand God is with us always, through His gift to you, by your Holy Spirit, and Jesus being our intercessor and savior, to our Father God in Heaven.

He is always there to make the up the difference and to deliver you from… El Elyon; The Most High God. This describes of saying no matter what is going on in your life, God (El Elyon) is in Control. El Roi; The God who sees, He sees all and knows all and is intimately connected with my circumstance and He hurts with me. El Olam; “The Everlasting, our unchanging God. No matter what the world is doing or circumstance, God is the same as yesterday, today and tomorrow, He is the same all the time. Jehovah Raah; The Lord, my Shepherd.

Jehovah Rapha; The Lord who heals. Jehovah Shammah; “The Lord who is always near”. Jehovah Shalom; The Lord my peace. Jesus gave us a way to approach God, He tore the curtain. His name in my relationship with God is Papa, my Father and friend. I do not have enough space look up on the internet.
Natural Disasters:#1 question why does God allow these and where was He? When Eve started this whole mess with the devil and tasting from the tree of knowledge; satan moved in and God pulled back. God set a curse on man that he must endure work and the disease of the world. The world was more or less on it’s own, so to speak. Where was God, He was right there with His saved giving them peace and walking with them through it. The non saved reap the pain and the world disease of corruption. Need verse.
Natural man: [Strong’s G5591], the animal man, one who lives in a natural state, and under the influence of his animal passions; for ψυχη [Strong’s G5590] means the inferior and sensual part of man, in opposition to the νους [Strong’s G3563] understanding, or πνευμα [Strong’s G4151], the spirit.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1Co_15:44, 1Co_15:46; Jam_3:15; Jud_1:19
New Wine Strong’s G1098 gleukos glyoo'-kos Akin to G1099; sweet wine, that is, (properly) must (fresh juice), but used of the more saccharine (and therefore highly inebriating) fermented wine: - new wine.
Offense; legal or moral crime: an official crime, or a crime against moral, social, or other accepted standards. The world calls giving an offense is a crime. Let alone what God says about it. Mat 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. Even Jesus takes offense. It is just like anger, it is OK, yet it is what you do in this state or how you react is what is important. I cover this in the relationship step. 1Cor.10:32, 2Cor.6:3, 11:29, Ph.1:10, Jer.2:3, Jn.6:61Mt.13:21, Rom.14:21
Overcome; Rev. 12:10-12 verse 11 And they overcome him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death. Live in life with not being content with it, seeking to overcome satan and his ways, through the blood of Jesus. Woe, unto those who do not… For those who do, you will rejoice in Heaven. Overcome the world, and it’s ways. Pressing through with faith and expectancy.
Partnership; 1. relationship between partners: the relationship between two or more people or organizations that are involved in or share the same activity
2. cooperation: cooperation between people or groups working together
3. group of people working together: an organization formed by two or more people or groups to work together for some purpose. Being partnership with God is what it is all about. For it is the ultimate relationship that anyone can have. Everyone should live in partnership, at home, church, in business, in fellowship. Two or more gathered together in helping one another in the betterment of others and self growth. If you partner up in reading the bible or in study or in friendship it is iron sharpens iron situation. The also says it is good for keeping warm or fighting battles. Partnership with Jesus through CCR this builds your love and you become a God Thinker.
Passion: The dictionary says; intense emotion: intense or overpowering emotion such as love, joy, hatred, or anger. E-sword says; pash´un, pash´unz: “Passion” is derived from Latin passio, which in turn is derived from the verb patior, with the root, pat. The Latin words are connected with the Greek root, παθ, path, which appears in a large number of derivatives. And in Greek, Latin, and English (with other languages in addition) words connected with this root, pat, path, are often susceptible of a great variety of meanings, for which the dictionaries must be consulted. For “passion,” however, as it appears in English Versions of the Bible, only three of these meanings need be considered. (1) Close to what seems to be the primary force of the root is the meaning “suffer,” and in this sense “passion” is used in Act_1:3, “to whom he also showed himself alive after his passion.”
“Passion” is what we have to have, as a good measure of where and how we are in God’s walk. For without passion we sit on our premise and do little. With passion we seek and find and are able to do what God wants of us. How do we get passion or create it. If you want to get passionate with your love one what do you do? Get upfront and personal in intimacy. Well get that way with Jesus, ask for His undivided love and attention. See what happens. In all things ask Jesus.
Finding God’s face is finding God’s love. Communion builds the three kinds of love. For this is what builds our passion, love.
Past & letting go; 1Jo 2:8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth. Eph.4:19; Heb 13:18-21. Holding on to the past does not equal and peaceful future. Hurting people hurt people. Your are planting the wrong seeds to harvest for peace. You are making curses. Letting go of anger and hurt. Letting God remove the teeth from the past, satan is a toothless dog when you let it go. The biggest curse is you not letting go of the past. What you plant has to be harvested and dealt with. There are family curses are brought on by something you do in sin or your ancestry did. There are curses from God penalties for sinners, so to speak… Our past influences our future, our future is what you are thinking today. Je.17:5 Curse the man that trusteth in man. Je.48:10; Jn.7:49;Je.11:3; Jer.17:3; Mal.3:9; Ga.3:10;
Peace: Freedom from war, a state of calm. Be of comfort in God. Faith made whole, becoming one with God. Prosperous in all. In order to be in peace one must trust in the Lord and delight in Him. Lk. 8:48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace. Mt._10:13, Mar._5:34, Lk._1:79, Lk._2:14, Lk._2:29, Lk._7:50. Sometimes in order to keep peace, you might have to swallow our pride, instead we wallow in our pride and feel the anger out of peace. (Matthew 5:9)"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God." Mt.5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what I reward have ye? … A peace keeper is a steward of God’s word, they are meek. I find how it’s interesting it is in that the word “peace” literally means “to set at one again.” In other words, when we are one with the Father, when we line up our thoughts, our words and our actions with Him through the blood of Jesus Christ, we will experience His peace in our lives.
Perceive: To hear, see, to feel in understanding or comprehend. Turn it into perception; to act in perceiving and knowing. This is discernment and this is accomplished; through knowing and using God’s word. Experiencing it, by living it. Principles and methods. God has to have something to use. God’s principles never change. Yet, methods change for each person, by their circumstance, yet always in righteousness and love. Then He always wants you to have the right motive, He will not settle for anything less.
Perspective; A measured assessment of something. Life is great when you see it in the eyes of Jesus. Yet it is dung when not. Life is not what you want it to be, it is what it is. The secret is in the way you see it and live it, how you handle it. How you change it through CCR.
Persistent: Don’t give up, keep on keeping on. Phi. 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Saints don’t be aints, in what you think and do,,, whatever you are thinking and doing, do it whole heartily and in the identity of Christ. 1 Th. 5:6 “Let us not sleep, as do others.” Pro. 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Your reward is blessings from God and knowing a job well done; 2Ti 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
I am forgiven, therefore I forgive everyone and everything.
Ponder: think over and meditate. Making sense of something the best way is with your Holy Spirit. Ask Him about everything. It is to consider, think about, think over, contemplate, to wonder about, to muse.
Possibilities of God: is the potential, read the promises of God, that is the possibilities. He can do anything, you are made in His image, by His wisdom and promises we are unlimited.
Praise; Can bring out the manifestation of God, it stirs His glory. We are here to praise and worship our Father in Heaven; If we do this often you shall be rewarded. Not only by your mouth, be a doer of the word: 1Cor:14:15 … I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also; I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
Prayer: Wishing will never be a substitute for prayer. Prayer is your access to the Power of God. Why do we pray? What is it for? Prayer is many things, it is your request to God and simply listening for an answer or the next step. Supplication and/or talking to God, a conversation. It is talking to and having intimacy with Jesus. It is my first kiss in the morning and the last in the evening with Jesus, with lots of hugs in between. Pray and keep praying whether it be 1 day or years, pray until you hear from God or see the result. God always says yes, no, or not yet. He does not say maybe. Jer. 33:3 Call on me and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest me. James 5:13 Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry ? Let him sings psalms. CCR 1Thes. 5:17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Prayer is fueled by faith. Understanding this verse helps in prayer; Joh 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Look up prayer in your concordance.
Prayer Warrior; People who pray for others, an intercessor on fire in the Holy Spirit. Eph.6:13-18; 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. 2Chron.20:15 …Thus saith the Lord unto you. Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 1Pe 5:7 Casting all your care upon him, for He careth for you. One who prays for others; in the battle against circumstance and principalities. His strength comes in numbers, the more soldiers the better. He girdleth the truth, his armor is God’s word; He binds up evil and his evil works and cast them into the sea. Cast his cares and of others to God. Mat 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. James5:13 Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry ? Let him sings psalms. 1Thes. 5:17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Prayer Warrior King It is my belief that, someone who intervenes with prayer and is like a war horse in the Old Testament is what a prayer warrior is. One who smells the gun powder, hears the roar of war by this definition runs toward these things without hesitation and battles the enemy no matter the cost and while in battle holds the ground, hell or high water. A prayer warrior is fireproof. Spend time with God in the presence it is the best way for a prayer warrior to be renewed and filled so one can be ready for war, study prayer and prayer warrior. It is a good thing to study David’s life and why he was one of God’s favorite after His heart. He was a warrior. We all want to hear God say… Mt. 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Study these scripture and find more ; Rom 8:17
Prayer; gives you your life. It renews you. It is your communication with God and is essential in your personal relationship with Him. It is your armor against evil. It wards off disease. It lifts you up. It cleanses your body, mind and soul. You need to ask, to for cleansing, by the Blood of Jesus. It is laid out here in these two scriptures in what God will do for you; if you walk and be a doer in the word, just ask. Ps.103:2-5; Isa.53:3-5 Teach us to pray Apostles said, "Lord, teach us to pray!" We say, teach us to pray with confidence, yet in humility.
“Prayer begins, where our human capacity ends, that is why we must pray and ask for the capacity to receive all of what God has for us“. Prayer is such a personal thing and it means so many different things to so many. I say it is simply having conversation with God, conversation engages more than your words from your mouth, you must also listen. Teach us to pray, to ask for Your will and the discernment to understand it, not to force You to give us what we want, yet as a means of submitting ourselves to Your plan, we ask to recognize that in us what we paid for in and with you, we ask for Your favor in all that we do. Remember prayer is not over until you are silent and be still, listen to God’s word to you. Teach us to devote more time to this precious privilege. Ps.55:17; mt.21:22; Lk.18:1; 1Cor.11:13; 1Thess.5:17; 1Cor:14:15 … I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also; I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. 1Thes. 5:17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Pre- destined: God has set things up for you and me. He knew you before you were born. “My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:15-16 NIV) God spoke & our lives are made in our mother’s womb. We were “fearfully and wonderfully made,” Psalm 139:14,16 NIV and God has ordained all of our days, just as he’s ordained all of the past saints. God had it planned. God had it planted, He made the Garden. It had in it everything God intended. Then He made the man. Likewise, God has set things up for you and me. He knew you before you were born. “My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:15-16 NIV) God spoke & our lives are made in our mother’s womb. We were “fearfully and wonderfully made,” Psalm 139:14,16 NIV and God has ordained all of our days, just as he’s ordained all of the past saints.
Pre-marital sex: Don’t
Pride; 1. feeling of superiority: a haughty attitude shown by people who believe, often unjustifiably, that they are better than others Her pride prevented her from mixing with those she considered her social inferiors. 2. proper sense of own value: the correct level of respect for the importance and value of your personal character, life, efforts, or achievements He had lost all his confidence and pride.
3. satisfaction with self: the happy, satisfied feeling somebody experiences when having or achieving something special that other people admire She felt a sense of pride when she looked at her finished work. 4. source of personal satisfaction: something that somebody feels especially pleased and satisfied to own or to have achieved.
Pride is what your walk is about, retraining yourself to have less pride and awareness of who you are the bride, to Jesus. Pride; Jam 4:6 But He giveth more grace. Wherefore He saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.Prov.8:13; 13:10; 16:18; Mark7:22; 1Jn.2:16; A condition of being proud. A high opinion of one self, conceit; Disdain; to look down upon, to scorn. Pride is like a festered splinter in your foot. It is hard to walk in God’s sight. See humble. Wow, read what Mark says about pride, he puts it along side blasphemy, whoa! Mark 7:21-23; …an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness; All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. Pro 16:5-6 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
Prize: 1Co 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
Problems: With God there is nothing impossible for me or nothing I cannot do. There is no problem to big or to small for God as long as you put your faith in Him and trust Him with all thine heart, just like David did. Can you imagine facing a giant no one else would face? When you are confronted with a Goliath-sized problem; Don’t respond saying he is to big to hit, think like David, how can I miss a head that big. Pro.3:5 trust in the Lord with all thine heart; lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy path. 1Sam.17:37 The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of the Philistine. 1Pet.5:7; Remember this God’s love is your shield against firey darts of satan. 1 Peter 5:6-8 (6) Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: (7) Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (8) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Satan may or may not be the cause of the situation, but even if he is not, he is prowling around to take advantage of it, in the hopes that he might pick us off. What does the roaring lion most likely attack? The strays, the ones on the fringes, and those not keeping up with the flock. Spiritually, the ones most likely to be attacked are those who are not spiritually with it. Wearied by a barrage of problems, they begin to separate themselves, then Satan, the roaring lion, picks them off.
He is especially adept at taking advantage of people's feelings. All too often, we are dominated by our emotions rather than facts or, we could say, the truth of God. In such a circumstance, it is easy for us to get our feelings hurt, ignore the facts, and proceed to lie to ourselves, just as Satan did to himself when he first sinned.
Procrastination: To put off doing something until another time; to waste time; Act. 24:25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come. Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee. Ja.4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time,; and then vanish away. Time is a premium, waste not my friends. When you are young you think you have all the time one needs, yet when you are older time is to short; procrastinate not my saints. You have to over come procrastination in order to have the next word prosperous.
Promises: If you do a search on your e-sword bible on KJV you will come up with many verses on the promises. God’s promises are for His saints and the laws are for everyone. Rom 9:4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; 2Co 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. Heb 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Proportion Faith: Measure of faith; Eph 4:7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Rom 12:6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Rom_12:3; Act_18:24-28; 2Co_8:12; Phi_3:15; Rom_12:6; Joh_3:34; 1Co_4:7, 1Co_12:7-11; 2Co_12:13; Eph_4:7, Eph_4:13, Eph_4:16
Prosperous; Achieved by obedience in the word. Any success is achieved in obedience. "For I know the plans I have for you, ”declares the Lord”, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11). Having the prosperous attitude, a God thinker by CCR. Be a giver, no one can out give God. Tithe first fruits. Picture your prize as if you already have it. Work your goal as part of your purpose. Study reaping and sowing. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. KJV Mt. 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you. That ye should go fourth and bring fruit. John 14:17-26 partial verse: Ye know Him; for He dwellwth with you, and shall be in you… He shall teach you all things. Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. Mk.11:24 Therefore I say unto you. What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them. Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Prove: Before you put away something in your mind, prove it in verse and discernment; 1Thess.5:21. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22. Abstain from all appearance of evil.
Purpose: 1. reason for existence: the reason for which something exists or for which it has been done or made the purpose of life. 2. desired effect: the goal or intended outcome of something. Purpose means something set up as an object or end to be attained It is an intention. It is a resolution. Purpose is a determination. To have one’s intention in view, the result aimed at. He works hard yet has little purpose. Success at what we do is; you must have a purpose for it; working in the greater good. Eph. 4:1-13 This is Godly wisdom in seeking life and knowing what God says about it. Pray and reread it. Know this, what ever God has made in this world, has purpose & it serves God and us. Pray and ask God what your purpose is, John 14:17-26 partial verse: Ye know Him; for He dwellwth with you, and shall be in you… He shall teach you all things. Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Everything on earth has purpose…. Our corporate purpose, like I said before is to praise and worship God. Man’s individual overall purpose is given to & by Jesus. John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you. That ye should go fourth and bring fruit. I think this verse is the living word. I think Jesus is telling us to get up off our ho-hum lives and do good things through learning the word and using it. That is what this book is all about. “Purpose”. God gives us significance through purpose and His love. Learning your soul and what it is you are to be doing in life. Defining it along the way. Let me ask you this; what in your life comes easy to you that is or can be for the common good and you like to do it? That is your first clue of your purpose. Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.
Rapture, caught up: You will find a lot of controversy about this and revelation, find your truth: Second coming and rapture are they two different things? Sounds like it to me when words like gather, taken, caught up, it is talking about two events. He is not actually returning to do battle at this point, maybe He is gathering up. Study all the side bar references too, 1Thess.4:17 Read the whole chapter, also 5:1-28; Mt.25:31; Zech.14:4; Rev.19:14; Mt.13:41-43. These scriptures sound like they are before Jesus returns there is no mention of satan being bound in these scriptures either. Different events in a short period of time. Remember time in Jesus’ eyes is different than our time span of thinking, this could be viewed as part of the second coming, just the beginning. The actual second coming is after the 7 years of the 3 viles or bowls. You have to really get some information from someone who studies this. Then the second coming there are words like church returns, comes with, unbelievers gathered, satan and the wicked are bound. It says in 1Thess.5:6 for us not to be asleep and for us to keep watch. 8 Tells us to keep in the word of God by the armor. 11 tells us to comfort one another and to build up each other in the word. Basically not to stick our head in the sand and ignore the end times and deny them. You read and be the judge, make your own conclusions after prayer and confirmation through our Abba.
Reap: Read about sowing also. Gal 6:7-10 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
Rebuke: re•buke [ri byk] (past re•buked, past participle re•buked, present participle re•buk•ing, 3rd person present singular re•bukes) tell somebody off: to criticize or reprimand somebody, usually sharply n (plural re•bukes) a telling off: a reprimand or expression of criticism or disapproval.
As a verb “rebuke” is in the Old Testament the translation of גּער, gā‛ar and יכח, yākhaḥ; another word, rībh, in Neh_5:7, is in the Revised Version (British and American) translated “contended with.” “Rebuke” (noun) is most frequently the translation of ge‛ārāh; also in the King James Version of ḥerpāh (Isa_25:8; Jer_15:15, the Revised Version (British and American) “reproach”), and of a few other words signifying reproach, etc. “Rebuker” (mūṣār, literally, “correction,” “chastisement”) in Hos_5:2 has the Revised Version margin “Hebrew 'rebuke.'“ In the New Testament “to rebuke” is most often the translation of ἐπιτιμάω, epitimáō (Mat_8:26; Mat_16:22; Mat_17:18, etc.); Also read controlling satan in the C’s.
Rejoice gi^yl gu^l gheel, gool A primitive root; properly to spin around (under the influence of any violent emotion), that is, usually rejoice, or (as cringing) fear: - be glad, joy, be joyful, rejoice. Study joy and delight in the Lord. Read 1Ch_16:31, Psa_2:11, Psa_9:14, Psa_13:4-5 (2), Psa_14:7, Psa_21:1, Psa_51:8, Psa_53:6, Psa_89:16, Psa_97:1, Pro_23:24-25.
Relationship N Love: Read step 6; This is a very important subject to learn about, it starts with the relationship with God then with each other.; For God is love: Eph.5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. Mk.10:9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Mk.10:8 this is my commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. I always say, do you want to be in this relationship or be right? Meaning a relationship is not a contest.
1 Peter 5: 7 Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. It is God’s battle. 2Chron.20:15 …Thus saith the Lord unto you. Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. More verse
Relationship with Jesus: A relationship with God the Father, and Jesus, directed through your Holy Spirit. That is how it works. Your gift from God is your Holy Spirit, He is your voice and discerner, your helper. Jesus is your advocate to our Father and a best friend, yet He is your King, God being your Father, Abba source of all and gives you love. Sometimes discipline and sometimes a hug. Your relationship is as good as your identity in Christ and how often you talk to Him. Just like a worldly best friend. You have to communicate in order to have an intimate relationship. It does not stop there, you have to learn to die a little every day in some prideful way. You have to listen and use what God gives you in guiding your life. Personal relationship with Jesus.
The first discipline is growing in your personal relationship with Jesus Christ
, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…” (2 Peter 3:18). First, we need to be reading, studying and meditating on God’s Word. I Peter 2:2 tells us to, “Long for the pure milk of God’s word, so that by means of it, you may grow.” Second, we should be memorizing Scripture. David memorized Scripture and wrote of it in the Psalms – “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you” (Psalm 119:11). We will be amazed at our rapid growth in Christ as we fill our minds and hearts with God’s Word. Third, we must spend time communing with God in prayer.
Reliance: See Faith Pro 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. MSG Deu 7:9 Know this: GOD, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations.
MSG 2Ti 4:8 All that's left now is the shouting--God's applause! Depend on it, he's an honest judge. He'll do right not only by me, but by everyone eager for his coming. I promise you this by relying and depending on God and walking in the Spirit you will have victory over temptation and grow in your defeats or failures. Saints know, that the guidance of the Lord keeps your heart happy, resting in God by trusting in His promises. That is what faith is all about. Trust in the unseen.
Renew; is to purge out the clutter of the world of one’s mind, to refresh our soul, letting go of the past, letting go of the disease of satan, it brings you back to the promises. The ones you made and the promises God made. It is the result of time spent in your relationship with God. Sozo Ps. 103 So, you can function (operate, walk, handle) in the world. It removes evil from us, it is part of the process of sanctification, it re-establishes us more firmly with the Kingdom of God be renewing and repenting we die a little everyday from the old self. Heb 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. 7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: Heb. 6:4; Psa. 51:10; Isa. 1:28; 2Ti. 2:25
For without renewing you cannot have any promise. It promotes the fulfillment of your works in your walk (the result you seek). The life you want comes from the mind and that is where satan battles you and wins and destroys your life. Life holds your balance in what you think and understand. Know who you are in Christ. Know you are adopted into the Royal Family of Jesus when you are saved. Know you are not just saved, you are bought paid for in full. Jesus healed you and forgave you once for all. Not partially, in all. Wholly healed and saved with unmeasured grace and love. It is up to you to learn and use what you learn in shaping your life. Then everyday renewing what I just told you with Jesus, this is renewing of the mind and spirit. Commune with Jesus often.
Repent Webster says a feeling of sorrow or regret. That to me is not repentance it is conviction. Repent is to bow down to God, to change your ways, and ask for forgiveness and a chance to do it right, reconciliation with God for our iniquity. Jer.31:19; Ex.32:12; Mk.1:15; Lk.17:3,4;
Revenge; or avenge; Both words are about repaying a wrong, and the differences between two or more parties. Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Make sure God is the collector and not you.
Royal Family of Jesus: When you are saved, you are adopted into family of Jesus.
Mar 9:41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
Gal 4:5 God sent him to pay for the freedom of those who were controlled by these laws so that we would be adopted as his children. 6 Because you are God's children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into us to call out, "Abba! Father!"
Rom 8:14 Certainly, all who are guided by God's Spirit are God's children. 15 You haven't received the spirit of slaves that leads you into fear again. Instead, you have received the spirit of God's adopted children by which we call out, "Abba! Father!" 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. 17 If we are his children, we are also God's heirs. If we share in Christ's suffering in order to share his glory, we are heirs together with him.
Eph 1:11-14 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. Eph 3:14-19 . Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Rom 8:14-15 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. Gal 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Rules for walking the talk: Col. 3 read the whole chapter. For this is the rules for Holy Living. Make it a study and check out several translations. Understand Jesus and His mission Col. 1. Whole chapter. Most of all do it in love. Relationships is what it is all about, love. Love is more than a feeling. Love needs to be a living and growing thing, it is not just a feeling that happens on it‘s own. Love is learning to be a servant to one another and bearing one another. It takes positive actions to make it felt by others or that special someone. The same applies to God and Jesus. Get the word in you so your identity in Christ grows. Showing your love by actions of obedience and I promise love will grow in your relationship with Jesus.
Sabbath; Remember Jesus came not to do away with the law, He came to fulfill it. Yahweh taught the people in the wilderness to observe the 7th day as a Sabbath of rest by sending no manna on that day, a double supply being given on the 6th day of the week. Exo 31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
This is another one of those controversy subjects. The bible scripture says Saturday is the Sabbath. Ex.20:1-17 Thou shalt not have no other Gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; Remember the Sabbath day to keep holy;…
The bible scripture says Saturday is the Sabbath so why do we worship and go to church on Sunday? The Old Roman Catholic church moved the it to Sunday. So, the world tradition turned it to Sunday as the Sabbath. I concluded it really is not a Sabbath day, more of a celebration of the Pentecost, the resurrection. I think o0ver the years satan subtly said it is the Sabbath, It makes us sin that way; If we state it as the Sabbath. I think that is what happened . Monday is the second day of the week and the first day of the work week.
Certainly Christians can assemble and worship on any day; yet during the week there are so many activities and responsibilities would interfere with congregational and group worship and Bible study. However, on the Sabbath, God's children are free from physical duties and obligations. Indeed, they are commanded by God to be free on that day. Hence, Saturday or Sunday is suitable for group worship, on the Sabbath day it is especially appropriate. Now I am not telling anyone to become a 7 Day Adventist. Throughout Bible history, God's people have used Saturday for the Sabbath, so I do too, Yet I still celebrate Jesus and worship in going to Church on Sunday. There is nothing telling me not too.
It is not lawful to work for profit on the Sabbath. Jesus made it very plain that it is OK to take care of emergencies even those that involve labor; on the Sabbath. He gave the example (Luke l4:5) , of pulling an ox out of the ditch and of caring for animals. Of course today’s examples would be more like fixing a flat tire, fix a broken water line or toilet problem. You get the idea.
The Sabbath day is to Enhance Our Relationship with God, renew, and rest. It is your motive and method is what is at stake here. Mark. 2:27-28 "The Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath" .
There are so many things that could be said and rules about keeping the Sabbath. We don’t have to make rules or abide by the same set of made up rules. Just stay with what the law was made for and enjoy it. Hard fast none joy rules is not God's way. He is not looking for us to adhere to a set of hard fast regulations; it’s having joy and obedience with in the law. He wants an intimate, personal relationship with us. He wants children who are learning and growing and developing, not kids who can follow a code or set of rules and regulations. Jesus against this approach: Live by the Holy Spirit, so what does your Holy Spirit suggest to you?
Some people are going to say Sunday is their Sabbath, some might say it is their celebration of the resurrection and day of worship. I say you better read on it and ask God what He says about it. Below are many scriptures for you to study and draw your own truths from, plus use your concordance of your bible. You need to look up scripture you find and research. Here is some I found. I looked up online in search engine Sunday verses Saturday Sabbath. Christianity changed from Saturday from following the lead of the Roman Catholic church which made the change. Documentation; "Roman Catholic Confessions About Sunday,"
This scripture is for your own conclusion to when and how you celebrate your Sabbath in worship and rest> To determine through discernment through God. Gen. 2:2-3; Acts 15:28 ; Acts 20:7 and 1 Cor 16:2; Matt. 28.1; Mark 16.2; Luke 24:1; and John 20.l; Mark 16.9; John 20.19; Luke 24:13; Romans 14.1-5, Gal. 4.10, and Col. 2.16.; Acts 13.14, 42, 44; 14.1; 16.13; 17.2; 18.4).; Ten Commandments, which included the Sabbath command (Rom. 2.13, 26; 7.7, 12, 14, 22).; (Acts 13.16,26). (Acts 13.14, 42, 44; 16.13; 17, 2; 18.4; 21.24- 23.6; 25.8; 26.5; Rom. 7.12, 14, 22). When James spoke before the Jerusalem Council, he did so with the understanding that Gentile Christians were still meeting in the synagogues on the Sabbath; For Moses has been preached in every city... and is read in the synagogues on every Sabbath (Acts 15.21). Colossians 2.16; It is my opinion one must pick a day and observe a Sabbath day. The Sabbath was made for man not man for the Sabbath. So, now discern this with God and be silent after you pray and be still in meditating. So do you hear God’s word, discern what you hear. I personally rest on Saturday and celebrate Jesus resurrection and go to Sunday worship at my church. I stand not on man’s doctrine, I am ruled by my Holy Spirit.
Sack of Rocks; This is part of God’s system for your life. Everybody, carries a sack around in life, some call it baggage. As we go through life we take our hurts and un-forgiveness; they become rocks and we pick them up off the a stack of rocks of the world gives us. This is the devil’s ploy in keeping you unrighteous and without peace. Here is the answer; forgive yourself, the person or event that is the source of your pain (the rock). Ask God to forgive it and you, and He will forgive and take the pain out of the memory; then toss the rock skipping across and into the lost lake. He laughs while doing it. He is so happy to see you take another step in your walk with Him. Now repent your ways.
Anyway He pardons you. You have to do the same. Now, when that thought tries to revisit you or wants to haunt you, tell the devil, I am not going there because God has granted me a pardon, He is the most high. I cast this old thought on to my Heavenly Father and you or it cannot hurt me any more, I let it go. I may remember, yet I know Father that you removed the swords from them. By the authority in me, I bind you up satan and anything that you are trying to bond or brand me with and cast them into the sea. I cast my cares to You Sweet Abba; in Jesus’ name. Amen
Prov.23:26 My son, give Me thine heart. So, give Him yours. Trust in Him with your whole heart. To forgive is letting go of the past and it is setting a prisoner free, you may discover the prisoner was you. Remember the good let go of the bad. MT.6:14,15 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Eph.4:31,32 "let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice; and be ye kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ sake hath forgiven you"; Col. 3: 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 1 John 1: 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all un-righteousness. Refer: 1Cor.14:33; Jas.3:16; 1Pet.2:6; Ps.71:1; Dan.9:8; Mt.3:44,45; Mk.11:25. Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Bottom line is; Pro.3:5 trust in the Lord with all thine heart; lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy path.
Saints; A name often given to Christians because they are holy; see the notes at 1Co_1:2. This is who we are after being born again and learning daily His word, dieing in the flesh daily, and becoming a steward of His Word. Names of Saints; Believers, Beloved Brethren, Children of God, Chosen ones, Christians, Elect, Heirs, Lights, Ransomed of the Lord, Righteous, The Salt, God’s Sheep, Son’s of God, Son’s of light, Vessels of Honor, Vessels of Mercy. I am sure there are more you study and look up verse on saints. The way you become a saint is by accepting the key to eternal life, Jesus Christ as your saviour, your key to be with our Father God for eternity. You lay claim to your inheirtance by acceptance ino your adopted family of God. A saint is one who the light shines through. The word is so in them that it emanates from their life and body.
Scripture on saints: 2Ch.6:41; Jb.15:15; Ps.16:3; Ps.30:4; Ps.37:28;Ps.50:5;Ps.97:10; Prov.2:8;.
Salvation; We are saved by the grace of God, a gift. It is not partially saved we are saved in wholeness( Greek Sozo) and unmeasured grace and love. Eph. 2:5-12 & MSG John 8:36. It’s the belief and faith in Jesus Christ and His resurrection and why He did what He did. He died for our sins, He paid the ransom, and He took your beating from the whip of life’s sin. Mt. 18: 3 … verily I say unto you. Except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Rom.10:9,10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus; John 3:5 Verily, verily, I say unto thee; except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.; 16,17; 36; Ac.2:38; Rom.1:16; 6:4; A gift from God Eph.2:8 For by grace are ye saved through Faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. God’s Word presents only two categories of people, Christians and non-Christians, believers and unbelievers, those who have bowed to the Lordship of Christ and those who have not, see; MSG Rom 6:14-18 Sin can't tell you how to live. After all, you're not living under that old tyranny any longer. You're living in the freedom of God. So, since we're out from under the old tyranny, does that mean we can live any old way we want? Since we're free in the freedom of God, can we do anything that comes to mind? Hardly. You know well enough from your own experience that there are some acts of so-called freedom that destroy freedom. Offer yourselves to sin, for instance, and it's your last free act. But offer yourselves to the ways of God and the freedom never quits. All your lives you've let sin tell you what to do. But thank God you've started listening to a new master, one whose commands set you free to live openly in his freedom! 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 5:18-24; Ephesians 2:1-5; 1 John 1:5-7; 2:3-4; John 3:36. Salvation is being made alive in God by what Jesus did and our accepting it, then producing fruit. For without fruit one has no salvation. Paul exhorts us to “examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith” (2 Corinthians 13:5). The “carnal” Christian who examines himself will soon see that he/she is not in the faith. Let me end by saying to those who think you can loose your salvation. To nay sayers, some people who think that you can lose your salvation once you have it. I have one truth that will dispel that idea. Whether or not you can lose your salvation depends upon how you got it. If you were saved by your good works, then you can lose your salvation by your bad works and old mindsets. Yet God’s Word is very clear on this point. Titus 3:4-8 says, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.” How is someone saved? By grace. And if it is by grace, then you’re kept by grace. Salvation is not rooted in the merit of man, but in the mercy of God. Eph_2:8-9 Study Tit 3:5 by works: Job_9:20, Job_15:14, Job_25:4; Psa_143:2; Isa_57:12; Luk_10:27-29; Rom_3:20, Rom_3:28; Rom_4:5, Rom_9:11, Rom_9:16, Rom_9:30, Rom_11:6; Gal_2:16, Gal_3:16-21; Eph_2:4, Eph_2:8-9; 2Ti_1:9 according: Tit_3:4; Psa_62:12, Psa_86:5, Psa_86:15, Psa_130:7; Mic_7:18; Luk_1:50, Luk_1:54, Luk_1:72, Luk_1:78; Eph_1:6-7; Heb_4:16; 1Pe_1:3, 1Pe_2:10 washing: Joh_3:3-5; 1Co_6:11; Eph_5:26; 1Pe_3:21 renewing: Psa_51:10; Rom_12:2; Eph_4:23; Col_3:10; Heb_6:6
Sanctified; To set apart as holy.; as men sanctified by grace. Sanctify is to separate yourself from something to something; from unrighteous to righteous. To learn to not to sin and live like Jesus. Not some get this as to be better than someone, sanctimonious. You not better, jus living different than the way the world does. Wash yourselves in the Blood of Jesus Christ. Lev.20:7,8 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy; for I am the Lord your God. 8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them; I am the Lord which sanctify you.
Sanhedrin; The ancient Jewish court system was called the Sanhedrin. The Great Sanhedrin was the supreme religious body in Palestine during the time of the Holy Temple. There were also smaller religious Sanhedrins in every town in Palestine, as well as a civil political-democratic Sanhedrin. These Sanhedrins existed until the abolishment of the rabbinic patriarchate in about 425 C.E.
The earliest record of a Sanhedrin is by Josephus who wrote of a political Sanhedrin convened by the Romans in 57 B.C.E. Hellenistic sources generally depict the Sanhedrin as a political and judicial council headed by the country’s ruler.
Satan; Let me make it clear, satan is not the opposite of God. The devil was created, God was not, The devil’s back was broken on Cavalry. Do not give him credit in being a being that is in victory in any way. He cannot control you or any part of your life if you are reborn and do not let him trespass into your life. Bind and loosen and he shall run from you. Listen not to satan, he is a liar, deceiver, and a murder; A convicted felon that cannot serve a sentence and be forgiven, and so is his followers, they are already sentenced to burn. I pray you all know, if you do not follow Jesus then you follow satan, it does not matter what religion you are, if you do not follow Jesus, you are following satan. The name is Lucifer the fallen angel, the devil, Beelzebub, unclean spirit, demon, Prince of darkness, Prince of the world. Do you realize satan was ornate with the finest and was a beautiful angel; He sang with a beautiful voice and worshiped God like no other, he was the head of all praise and worship. God revered him. Read Ez.28:12 through 17. On his own he started pride. Then he fell in his thinking, he murmured to the other angels, he thought he was the same as God. That he could rule just as good as God. Jam.4:7 Submit to God and resist the devil. Eph.4:26 Be angry with the devil, sin not, give not to satan. Be not of the devil, learn how to bind him up and cast him into the sea. You have the authority. Mat 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Mk.16:17; Study Controlling satan.
1Jn.3:8 Sin is of the devil read about it. Ac.26:18 Sinners are under his dominion. 2Cor.4:3 The devil hides the gospel from those who are lost. Eph.6:12 we wrestle not against flesh, but against principalities. Disease, sickness is inflicted by satan, he opposes all righteousness. Job is a prime example demonstrating of who satan is and what he does in our lives. The battle is not yours, Bind up satan and cast him into the sea. Then cast your cares to God. The book of Job demonstrates that an obedient soul like Job has all things restored. God will give back 7 or 10 fold of whatever the devil steals from you. He is a Good God of restoration. Read Job the last chapter.
Saved comes from the Greek word sozo. From a primary word sōs̄ (contraction for the obsolete saos, “safe”); to save, that is, deliver or protect (literally or figuratively): - heal, preserve, save (self), do well, be (make) whole. I think the “be whole“, to “make whole“, to make you whole is setting you free, I think that is a good way to put it. Grace unmeasured, set free, made whole… wow this sounds great. How do we do it?to be rescued, redeemed and wholly healed; Remember you cannot be saved by justification and reject sanctification. Salvation is "To exit a life of danger / destruction and enter a life of safety and wholeness." A defense system so to speak; through sozo. We want you to understand this so you can be all you can be in Christ. We want you to have complete salvation and receive all that God has for you. Learning true meaning and the reality of cowboying up with Jesus. Sozo…gives you a Kingdom mindset. It gives you a perception of who you are in Christ. You are adopted into the Royal Family of Jesus and now you have all that goes with that Royalty. It always comes down to make whole.
Sozo is described as salvation for the body, soul and spirit at the moment of salvation. In other words the word sozo means "to preserve, make whole, keep you safe and sound, rescue you from danger or destruction." You are set free from sin, disease, and guilt.
I love the verse, the truth shall set you free. Your true salvation is to be set free from satan and his principality. Free of everything Lucifer and the world has for you, for it is death in the end.
It’s, the belief in Jesus Christ and His resurrection and why He did what He did. He died for our sins, He paid the ransom, and He took your beating from the whip of life’s sin. Mt. 18: 3 … verily I say unto you. Except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Rom.10:9,10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus; John 3:5Verily, verily, I say unto thee; except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.; 16,17; 36; Ac.2:38; Rom.1:16; 6:4; A gift from God Eph.2:8 For by grace are ye saved through Faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.
Seasons: Fruit trees have there season for their purpose. Your vegetable garden has a season. Your life circumstance has a season. Your marriage has it’s own seasons for honey mooning, raising children, and for enjoying grand children. Ecc.3:1 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Read Ecc.3:2-8; Dan.2:21Ac.1:7; Ac.14:17
Seeking: Mt.6:33 …seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Seeking Him and His word and being a doer in stewardship in demonstrating His love. All that He says in the word will be given unto you. Mt.19:26 With God all things are possible. Being a God chaser. Looking for His system, to the answers of life’s problems and God’s will. Read the bible. Seek God’s system, His will for your life, His purposes for what ever stage you are in, working in the greater good. Be a lover to all for Jesus tells us to love one another, so go and love them, even when they are not loveable.
Self Esteem or Worth: is confidence in your own merit as an individual , confidence in personal value and worth as an individual . Be sure not to get caught up in the world in the “Me” syndrome. It is not all about you. It is all about who you are. When you are are saved and spirit filled you are adopted into the Royal Family of Jesus. Which gives you stature and worth. You have the power of God. Read and study Hebrews and Eph.
Sevenfold: Gen. 4:24 If Cain is avenged 7 times, then Lamech, 77 times."
Shekinah Glory From the Hebrew Shekina means "dwelling place," giving the concept that God had no "home". I personally feels it is the “presence” the power of God, that power that makes miracles happen, the power that made Heaven and Earth. The power that performed the surgery on man and took the woman out of Adam and made the womb man. The power Jesus drew upon when He needed to heal or perform a miracle. It is said to be an unfolding cloud of God‘s power. Ex. 24:16; 40:16-18; Isa. 51:9-10. Some say the female presence of God. The Indwelling One, the Shekhina is regarded as the feminine aspect of God, who dwells inside every individual, the Goddess Within, the female soul of God. In Hebrew, Sh'kina means "dwelling place" and like Her Tantric counterpart, the Shakti, the Sh'kina was the source of all "soul" in the universe.
The name Shekina does not appear in the Bible or in the Apocrypha, but is regarded as part of Hebrew lore, as described in the Talmud and the Cabala. The Shekina was often defined as God's "Glory" which, like "Holy Spirit" was another way of concealing the original Goddess relationship that gave Yahweh his powers. Sometimes Her name was simply omitted from scripture, and another word substituted in its place. The Targum of Onkilos, an Aramaic version dating from about A.D. 130, uses the word "Shekina" where later authors substituted the word "name," in Deuteronomy 12:5 "God shall choose that his Shekina may dwell there, unto the house of his Shekina shall you seek. Sh'khinah was the feminine part of Yahweh, and the light that dwelt within everything. She lived at the root of the Tree of Life.
Silence: Learning to hear the music of the Heavens, we have to get beyond our five senses, sever their tie to the world and the noise. To link to the spirit world of God we have to praise Him and ask Him to come, then sever all senses so that, you will be able to make a connection with God, listen for the whisper in Golden silence, this is the beginning of Cowboying up with Jesus.
Sin; Our sin and guilt have been dealt with by Jesus once and for all, study Hebrews. Plain and simple, sin is rebelling against God. It is unbelief. It is; transgression of theological principles: an act, a thought, or behavior that goes against the law or teachings of our God, especially when the person who commits it is aware of this shameful offense: something that offends a moral or ethical principles. Most of all know it is deliberate and determined independence from God. Jesus paid the ransom for our sin. 2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. The Greek word means miss the mark. In the Greek it explains the bowman drawing back his bow and releasing the arrow and missing the bulls eye on the target. So if we are shooting for righteousness or the example of Jesus and we miss the mark, then we sin. Paul said we miss the mark of God’s glory when we sin. Rom.3:23 Sin is explained in Romans; Rom 5:12-20 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law, sin was in the world: sin was not imputed when there is no law, in other words no Jesus to take our place on the cross. Heb 10:18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Heb 9:26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. Heb 12:4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. Heb 3:13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. MsgPsa 38:4 I'm swamped by my bad behavior, collapsed under gunnysacks of guilt. MsgPsa 32:5 Then I let it all out; I said, "I'll make a clean breast of my failures to GOD." Suddenly the pressure was gone-- my guilt dissolved, my sin disappeared. MsgPsa 40:12 When troubles ganged up on me, a mob of sins past counting, I was so swamped by guilt I couldn't see my way clear. More guilt in my heart than hair on my head, so heavy the guilt that my heart gave out. MsgPsa 51:2 Scrub away my guilt, soak out my sins in your laundry.
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression and the first death over religion by Cane, who were the figures of which brought a reason for Him, that was to come. Yet not as the offence, so also there is the free gift. For if through the offence, the sentence would have made many be dead. There is the rest of the story to come, the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. He had not sinned, yet was sacrificed for sin, He paid our price, not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, it God’s free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by all offence, one man's death, of the factor of power and dominance reigned by He; for much more, now man can exercise his free will and choose to receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness, for now his justification is and shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: There is righteous and unrighteous. Just remember Jesus freed us from sin and guilt.
Sincere; sin•cere [sin sr] (comparative sin•cer•er, superlative sin•cer•est) adj
1. honest and open: honest and unaffected in a way that shows what is said is really meant 2. not feigned: based on what is truly and deeply felt. Sincerity and faith are different. 1Pe 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. 4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious. Sincerity does not save you. It is where that sincerity lays, in satan and his worldly principality. Religions of the world have many great words, yet the only truth that saves is Jesus Christ. You can go to any religion in the world and you will find the followers of that religion are very sincere in what they believe is truth. Believing what? In ourselves, our reasoning of what we think is true, or is it the truth, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Reasoning can get you in trouble sometimes, always know Prov. 3: 5&6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
What do you believe in? Sincerity of what you think or Jesus Christ and what He did and is; the truth. The point here is everyone thinks and believes differently. So when you are pointing the right direction to another, show them Jesus Christ and you don’t have to reason it or understand it to be saved. Having faith takes time and experiencing a relationship with God. It is knowing God is who He says He is, the promises, it is your certainty, the absence of doubt, the substance of things hoped for, taking heart in your belief that God will do what He says. What I am saying is sincerity does not save you. So I say if you want to use the word change it to honest or unaffected. The only certainty is the belief in Jesus Christ’s Gospel. Phi 1:10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; 11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
Slain in the spirit: Overcome by your Holy Sprit. The glory of God, His presence. Time of sozo and soaking.
Soul sōl (ðôùÑ, nephesh; ψυχή, psuchḗ; Latin anima): I believe your soul is your DNA and it is a recording of what you experience. Plus it is what God carries over to our new body. 1. Shades of Meaning in the Old Testament:
(1) Soul, like spirit, has various shades of meaning in the Old Testament, which may be summarized as follows: “Soul,” “living being,” “life,” “self,” “person,” “desire,” “appetite,” “emotion” and “passion” (BDB under the word). In the first instance it meant that which breathes, and as such is distinguished from bāsār, “flesh” (Isa_10:18; Deu_12:23); from she'ēr, “the inner flesh,” next the bones (Pro_11:17, “his own flesh”); from beṭen, “belly” (Psa_31:10, “My soul and my belly are consumed with grief”), etc.
(2) As the life-breath, it departs at death (Gen_35:18; Jer_15:2). Hence, the desire among Old Testament saints to be delivered from Sheol (Psa_16:10, “Thou wilt not leave my soul to Sheol”) and from shachath, “the pit” (Job_33:18, “He keepeth back his soul from the pit”; Isa_38:17, “Thou hast ... delivered it (my soul) from the pit of corruption”). This seems to be the clear teaching of the Bible, that the human soul does not exist prior to a human being conceived. Whether God creates a new human soul at the moment of conception, or whether God designed the human reproductive process to also reproduce a soul – God is ultimately responsible for the creation of each and every soul. Yet since Adam and Eve and Cain and Able man receives a lot more than just a fresh soul, it takes on sin through curses that are handed down through the family. Also I say where the souls goes soes your spirit.
Soaking: is being sozoed in the moment and what I call Cowboying-up with Jesus. Praying and asking God to come and have His way with you. A deeper love in His presence to receive what He has for you and to take things out of you that hinder you.
Soul (נפשׁ, nephesh; ψυχή, psuchḗ; Latin anima): “Soul,” “living being,” “life,” “self,” “person,” “desire,” “appetite,” “emotion” and “passion” As animus, “mind,” the center of our mental activities and passivities is indicated. Thus we read of 'a hungry soul' (Psa_107:9), 'a weary soul' (Jer_31:25), 'a loathing soul' (Lev_26:11), 'a thirsty soul' (Psa_42:2), 'a grieved soul' (Job_30:25), 'a loving soul' (Son_1:7), and many kindred expressions. Your mind, your will, your emotions, and inner flesh & blood of man. Deu_12:23, Deu_12:24. “Nephesh (soul) in man is the subject of personal life, whereof pneúma or rūaḥ (spirit) is the principle” (Lexicon, under the word, 795).
This individuality of man, however, may be denoted by pneuma as well, yet with a distinction. Nephesh or “soul” can only denote the individual life with a material organization or body. Pneuma or “spirit” is not so restricted. Scripture speaks of “spirits of just men made perfect” (Heb_12:23), where there can be no thought of a material or physical or corporeal organization. Where your soul goes so does your spirit. Read in Joh_19:30: “Jesus gave up his pneuma” to the Father, and, in the same Gospel (Joh_10:15), Jesus gave up His “psuchē for the sheep,” and in Mat_20:28 He gave His psuchē (not His pneuma) as a ransom - a difference which is characteristic. For the pneuma stands in quite a different relation to God from the psuchē. The “spirit” (pneuma) is the outbreathing of God into the creature, the life-principle derived from God. The “soul” (psuchē) is man's individual possession, that which distinguishes one man from another and from inanimate nature. The pneuma of Christ was surrendered to the Father in death; His psuchē was surrendered, His individual life was given “a ransom for many.” His life “was given for the sheep” “Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that worketh evil” (Rom_2:9); “We are ... of them that have faith unto the saving of the soul” (Heb_10:39); “Receive ... the implanted word, which is able to save your souls” (Jam_1:21). Research and ask God if you need more.
Soul mate; What is a soul mate and love for one another?
Read the Sonnets, Songs of Solomon it stirs one’s heart.
Son 4:10 How fair is thy love, my sister, my spouse! how much better is thy love than wine! and the smell of thine ointments than all spices! 11 Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue; and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.
If we have the idea of that special one, you can search the world over, finding none. We may think we found, only to find a spinning of round and round. If we have the idea we can find love… How mistaken we are, if you think love as cautious, wise, sensible, shrewd, and never taken to extremes, we have missed the true meaning of love. That warm feeling I have has no explanation. It is only full of exasperation. Love is pulling you to the limit. Love is testing your every fiber… Love is growing with every pain and it takes the everyday mundane. It takes the storms and riding them with each other and the Mighty One. It takes compassion & passion, serving, putting the other before you. It takes a wild ride along with the quite side by side. It takes loving and caring for one another, through Jesus the one who walks in love. The one who gave it all, and came from above. Your true soul mate my friend is Jesus, LOL.
As I peer into the question, is a soul mate one is joined at the hip in the pursuit of God’s purpose? I say it’s time to grow and build a soulmate you don’t find them.
Sowing; This is when you do something whether it is good or bad you will reap the harvest of the seeds you sow. I myself want to sow seeds that will put riches in my Heavenly account. Gal 6:7-10 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
The Lord has crowned your year with bounty and goodness! That means there is an abundant supply for whatever you may need in life—spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially. GW Psa 65:11 You crown the year with your goodness, and richness overflows wherever you are. And God has set up a system so that you can access His blessings. It’s the system of seedtime and harvest. If you have a need in your life, sow a seed. If you need friends, sow a seed by being a friend to someone. If you have a financial need, pray and ask the Lord where you should sow a financial seed. The Bible says to give and it shall be given unto you, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.
The word tells us that God always blesses us with enough seed for feeding us, taking care of our needs, then there is always enough seed to sow for another harvest, then my friends it is up to you sow the right seeds for your harvest. Lev 26:2 Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD. 3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; 4 Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
Sozo; the complete salvation, the wholeness of healing in salvation. Sozo G4982 sōzō sode'-zo From a primary word sōs̄ (contraction for the obsolete saos, “safe”); to save, that is, deliver or protect (literally or figuratively): - heal, preserve, save (self), do well, be (make) whole. I think the “be whole“, to “make whole“, to make you whole is setting you free, I think that is a good way to put it. Grace unmeasured, set free, made whole… just imagine this, grace unmeasured, sozo releases you from your emotional prison, from your hang ups so to speak. It is when you understand to report for duty, it is taking ownership of what Christ did, it when you partnership in the cross by dying daily and give as a living sacrifice walking in love, accepting the whole man of God what He did by changing old mindsets, by being a conduit for God. Hebrews 7:25 Because Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant (verse 22), "Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." Take a look at this scripture in the Amplified Version: "Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them." NOTE - It's important to remember that the word "save" in the Greek is the word "sozo" which literally means to heal, preserve, save, do well, be (make) whole. It means deliverance in the present as well as in the future or in eternity, physical as well as spiritual. Jesus used this word to denote healing of the body as well as forgiveness of sins. Always translate this word as "save - heal" when you come across it in the Word. “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36 NIV). Rom 10:9-13 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Then if you believe in the Jesus and what He did, you have sozo; the Holy Spirit, you are saved, that is, deliver ed, protect ed (literally or figuratively): - you are healed, preserve, prosperous (do well), be (make) made whole. You have access to unmeasured grace.
The whole idea here in sozo is what you believe in what just happened at your point of salvation. This is what your mind sets to, expectancy, your measure of faith, God’s complete love, unmeasured grace, and “wholeness” of your salvation. His full pardon which you are “completely” forgiven and married to Jesus so to speak. If you can park this in your mind and fully digest it and savor this, you will have a point to renew to.
Are you really free from the world and yourself? So many people today hear that God wants to set them free. Yet, they still walk around feeling defeated and carrying unnecessary burden, is that you?! You are set free from bondage of sin, guilt, fear, lack, sickness, worry, and you can control your circumstance all through being saved in wholeness of salvation. It is the world who holds you captive by what it has taught you. The answer is the ‘way’ you accept and understand what takes place when you receive salvation (Sozo) from Jesus, what really takes place and what you allow(believe). We today seem to measure everything. We cannot comprehend the unmeasured thought of this, this concept, which boils down to unmeasured love from God. Acts 2:47 "The people were praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.". Mark 5:34 And He said to her; "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction." James 5:15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will rise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Romans 10:9 "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Phil. 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ, Be confident in what you do and ask for solutions to your walk and present everything you decide and commit it to God before you do it. Ask Him to intervene where you fall short. We have freedom of choice called free will.
We are so programmed and have such great curses handed down from generation to generation and so full of pride we fail to believe and accept it or truly believe it. Learn to accept sozo and rebuke satan and what he has burdened you with, bind him his curses, demons, disease, and fallen angels, then cast them into the sea and loose them there out of your life. The bind yourself to God and His Love. Then loose whatever He has for you into your life right now here today in your life as it would be done in Heaven, thy Kingdom come will be done. Bind yourself to the capacity to receive all that He has for you and loose it through you to help others.
Today we are a show me people that Christ lives in us. Prove it. The Message translation says, if, then free through and through. MSG Joh 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you are free through and through. I pray after you study and discern this article, you let God heal you wholly and give His plan and complete healing of salvation, grace unmeasured, His full pardon to you and that you accept the position of being adopted into the Royal Family of Jesus Christ. Which gives you stature, power and authority to rebuke satan and his ways. The power and authority rule your way to the Kingdom of God. Claim your piece of heaven right now here on earth. Let not satan plant doubt and guilt on you. Take authority. It sets us free, we are made whole in unmeasured grace and love… wow this sounds great.
Spirit spir´it pneúma; Latin, spiritus):
1. Primary and Figurative Senses (1) As Wind, Breath (2) As Anger or Fury (3) As Mental and Moral Qualities in Man
2. Shades of Meaning (1) As Life-Principle (2) As Surviving Death (3) Spiritual Manifestations
3. Human and Divine Spirit (1) The Human as Related with the Divine (2) Operations of the Divine Spirit as Third Person of the Trinity
4. Old Testament Applications
5. Various Interpretations
(1) As Wind, Breath Used primarily in the Old Testament and New Testament of the wind, as in Gen_8:1; Num_11:31; Amo_4:13 (“createth the wind”); Heb_1:7 (angels, “spirits” or “winds” in margin); often used of the breath, as in Job_12:10; Job_15:30, and in 2Th_2:8 (wicked consumed by “the breath of his mouth”).
2) As Anger or Fury: In a figurative sense it was used as indicating anger or fury, and as such applied even to God, who destroys by the “breath of his nostrils” (Job_4:9; Exo_15:8; 2Sa_22:16; see 2Th_2:8).
More explanation; a usage of what the Bible's writers term "spirit." Spirit is the English translation of the Hebrew ruach (Strong's #7304), in the Old Testament and the Greek pneuma (Strong's #5141) in the New. It can literally mean "a current of air," "breath," "blast," or "breeze." However, when used figuratively, it indicates "vital principle," "disposition," "the rational soul," or figuratively, as indicating God, angel, or demon, it describes something that is invisible and immaterial and at the same time powerful, even a thing of considerable power. The foremost elements of spirit, then, are invisibility, immateriality, and power. In John 6:63, Jesus says, "It is the Spirit [which] gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life." Here is a clear example of the figurative use of "spirit."
Spirit, Body, and Soul. This subject needs you to have the assignment of looking this up and studying until you have understanding from God and His word, then confirmation. I would like to say one thing before we get started. Be in not heavy debate over the word of God. He will reveal your questions when He so pleases. Yet, ask and wait on Him. Arguments are not worth the harvest of the disagreement seeds you sow. I believe your soul is your mind, that is why the devil battles you there. Heb.4: 12 For the word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than a two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul, and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. The text above shows that man is body, soul, and spirit. 1Thes. 5:23 and Hebrews 4:12 are proof that the soul and the spirit are not the same. Sometimes in scripture the two are used interchangeably. It is my contention that the reason two are used this way because the soul cannot be anywhere without the spirit. Let us continue and see if you agree. Read the whole study. However, our current text shows that man is not twofold in nature, rather we are threefold in being, a triune as God is a triune. We are, created in His image. There is a difference between the soul and the spirit. The Hebrew writer reveals this and it takes the word of God to show us the difference. Consider this thought my saintly friends; Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews (Job 10:11). Zechariah 12:1 teaches that God create spirits in man.
Spiritual Gifts; are from God, He gives you the ability, it could be song or playing an instrument, or maybe teaching, or mechanical or a good memory, or the use of words, let it be God's words. It is the things you have passion for, the things that give you joy. It can be a multitude of different things, yet it comes from God, do use it void of pride or comparing to another. 1Pet. 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Read verse 11 too. Rom.12:6; 1Cor.12:4; Yet read verses 1 through 10. Look in the Forgiveness and sin step.
Spiritual Tools; These are the verses and principles that you have written down on your 3x5 cards and the truths that you have indwelled in your heart from God’s word. Rom 2:18 And knowest his will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the law; Rom 2:19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, Rom 2:20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the truth in the law. Pro 22:20 I'm giving you thirty sterling principles-- tested guidelines to live by. Joh 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. Act 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Stewardship: We own nothing other than our will, the privilege of choosing. Property, our bodies, & all life our under our domain is our stewardship, our responsibility to share. God entrusted it to us. Also study Devine ownership. The devil would like you to believe he is the owner of the world, I read the end of the book, God repossesses the world and refashions it for His saints. Stewardship is important to understand especially Jesus Christ’s Gospel, for this is the living word. It is in our trust. 1Cor. 4:1&2 Let, a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 1Pet. 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.1Cor. 4:1&2 Let, a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 1Cor.9:17 Ga.2:7; Col.1:25; 1Thess.2:4; Tit.1:3. Paul says in 1Cor. 4:1&2 Let, a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 1Thess.1-13
we are in stewardship of God’s word.
Storms; your adversities in your walk of life. Know Jesus is there with you to overcome the storm. 2 Cor. 1:5 “For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.” The greatest gift in this at the end of the storm, the sun comes out and the Son comes out. He promotes you or rewards you or both… There is reason to choose to lift up your heart to God and commune with Him. Let not the world be heavy ladden upon you. Give it to Jesus. He said the yoke will be light. Remember when you learn how to take victory in the storm, you can be promoted and rewarded. Psa 20:4 He will give you your heart's desire and carry out all your plans. 5 We will joyfully sing about your victory. We will wave our flags in the name of our God. The LORD will fulfill all your requests. 6 Now I know that the LORD will give victory to his anointed king. He will answer him from his holy heaven with mighty deeds of his powerful hand.
Strength, in weakness: KJV 2Cor. 13:9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection. KJV Eph. 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; Psalm 105:4 LORD and his strength, LORD, and his strength kj; Psalm 118:14 LORD is my strength ni, LORD is my strength kj; Psalm 119:28 strengthen me according to your word ni, strengthen thou me according unto thy word kj; Psalm 144:1 LORD, my Rock ni, LORD, my strength kj; Proverbs 10:29 refuge for the righteous ni, strength to the upright kj; Isaiah 49:5 God --- my strength ni, God --- my strength kj; Jeremiah 16:19 O LORD, my strength ni, O LORD, my strength kj; Habakkuk 3:19 LORD is my strength ni, LORD God is my strength kj.
Success: is achieving a goal one has set in life, and learned something in the process, good or bad. Always have the attitude of gratitude and to do the right thing. Always do your job as you are doing it for Jesus. Learn to make goals that our in harmony with the greater good. Sowing the right seeds. You do this by being obedient. There is a simple method of what God wants us to live. Talk to Him and run your life on pre made decisions. God tells us to try Him, to search Him. Then seek & search the way with by submitting to your Holy Spirit, so you can make pre-made decisions. Mk.11:24 Therefore I say unto you. What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them. That way you don‘t loose your joy when it comes to spending or doing something. Then you will not loose your joy or feel guilty about doing something or spending money. Success is pleasing God first, then pleasing yourself will come and pay in dividends. Success is in the dictionary;
1. achievement of desired aim: the achievement of something planned or attempted 2. attainment of fame, wealth, or power: impressive achievement, especially the attainment of fame, wealth, or power 3. something that turns out well: something that turns out as planned or intended.
Your success will be long lived, when you achieve it through your ability to communicate with your Holy Spirit. Also if one can apply God‘s laws and promises to your idea and plan, success will follow. Whatever you decide, be sure your plan is made through and with God, so it will align with the word. Everything we do should align with God’s word, laws and principles, most of all the greater good of God. One should always be a giver, for this is what God does and expects of us. Be thankful and always Thank God for everything. Be in gratitude, live it. Do everything with love. Life is choices and our successes are how we plan, plant seeds of good, and make choices using our Holy Spirit in all things by complete surrender of our lives and rights. Then He blesses us back by our works and expectation. Pleasing God is are true success story. The secret to happiness and success is to let Jesus become your partner, (this makes you the silent partner, get it?)
Submission: 1. yielding, or readiness to yield: a willingness to yield or surrender to somebody, or the act of doing so demanded nothing less than total submission to his authority 2. idea submitted: something put forward for consideration or approval, for example, a suggestion, proposal, or plan 3. act of submitting something: the act of submitting or handing in something, for example, a proposal to be considered or written work to be judged 4. law agreement to arbitrate: an agreement between parties in a dispute to have a contested matter arbitrated
5. wrestling withdrawal from wrestling bout: an acknowledgment by a wrestler that he or she cannot continue about because of pain.
Saints this can be such a paradox & confusing to people. Submit first and give it to God, that is what I do to others, then I surrender it to God. Let go and let God. People are so hung up on there rights, God wants us to give up our worldly rights, surrender to Him, seek the Kingdom first, rely on Him and not the world. When you get this burned into your brain and react in this way, you can submit. Best thing to do is by faith. Then God will bless you with what you need and then some. If you don’t get this ask God… Eph 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Heb 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. Jas 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Eph 5:22 Wives, understand and support your husbands in ways that show your support for Christ. 2Sa 22:45 Strangers shall submit themselves unto me: as soon as they hear, they shall be obedient unto me. 1Co 16:16; 1Pe 2:13; 1Pe 5:5;
Suicide; Result of satan’s disillusion and confusion of our thinking, polluted with world thoughts and misunderstanding fitting in and failure. It is the works of satan. Mat 17:15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatic, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. Be sure to read and discern Eph. 3:17
Surrender all; A living sacrifice, surrendering your sin and guilt, abandon all your rights to God, giving up everything to God, from the world that we have received.
Ten Commandments; Ex.20:1-17
Thou shalt not have no other Gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain;
Remember the Sabbath day to keep holy;
Honor thy father and thy mother;
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Thou shalt not covet…
Test and Trials; Nothing in life is really free, you have to pay. Even your salvation was paid by Jesus. In your life you pay everyday by dieing a little to self. Surrrendering to God and letting go of the old. Life is not a bowl of cherries. Life is training you up for eternity with God. If you were going on vacation in a foreign country doesn’t make since to learn the ways of that country. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 1Co 10:12 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:… Pro 23:7A If any crisis befalls you on any front, rebuke satan; then surrender “your will” absolutely… and leave it on the alter with God. Deu 33:27 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them. The Christian may be sinking under trouble from within through fierce conflict, your circumstance may feel like hell, yet one cannot be brought so low as to be beyond the reach of the “everlasting arms”; they are underneath Him; and, while thus sustained, all satan’s efforts to harm one avail nothing. You have been given authority, use it. Luk 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. ***Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Psalm 138:7 says - "Though I walk in the midst of trouble, Thou wilt revive me..." Psalm 66:12 says - "Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but Thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place“. Isaiah 43:2 says - "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." "Though I walk in the midst of trouble" - Not if "I walk..." yet "though I walk." Let's settle it right now as Christians - we are going to "walk in the midst of trouble." We can expect it. Read controlling satan step 3.
Thankful: Being thankful, that of thanksgiving: Express gratitude; Being grateful is a secret to having true peace and happiness. Phi 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Eph. 5:20; Col. 3:15, Col. 3:17 Begin your prayer in thanksgiving. Living in the attitude of gratitude, being thankful, being a forgiving soul, loving others, helping others & praising God. Ps.26:7; 95:2; 100:4; 1Tim.4:4; Rev.7:12; Now that is what I am talking about, a real Saint, a doer, a elect man of meekness. Living in the attitude of gratitude. Feel the joy of life living in gratitude, gratefulness.
Time: Time to God is different from ours. God is the Alpha and the Omega. 2Pet.3:B,8 …that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years; and a thousand years as one day.
Tithing; Look in your concordance of your study bible. Remember God does not need money, He owns all the silver and gold. He is the Alpha & Omega. It is the principle He looks for in your actions; Faith in Him. Understand this is a hot topic and sometimes controversially debated. I say this, all the word of God is between you and Him when it comes to using it in your life. He opens the word one day at a time and circumstance at a time, so to speak… on this subject of tithing and offerings, I always say what was told to me several years ago, How big of a blessing do you want?
Bottom line is God wants your first fruits. Because this shows what is so hard to work for or dear to your heart that you sacrifice the first fruits and sow a seed shows your faith in Him. Then He blesses you. Test this, He asks you to. Tithe your first fruits and see what happens. Be determined and consistent and you will harvest the promise of it. OK Here is my research and take on it from the Spirit. Read Mal.3:8-10; Gen. 1;11 , 1:26 , & 8:22; Gal.6:1-10 Seek God, through your relationship He will work on your heart in this matter, believe me, there will be more than one open heart surgery by the Master Surgeon. LOL Mt.6:33 …seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Ecc 11:1 Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. Give and shall be given unto you…Lk. 6:38 Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you. Pro 19:17 Whoever has pity on the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his good deed. What a promise here in Luke and Proverbs, these two verses alone makes me want to jump for joy. God cannot lie so why are you hung up with tithing and giving. It is the principle, your actions, your motive that God is looking for. Pro.3:9, Pro.3:10, Pro.10:22; Pro.19:17, Pro.22:9; Ecc.11:2; Mat.10:42; 2Co.8:14, 2Co.8:15, 2Co.9:6-8; Phi.4:17-19
Tongue; or speech, what your mouth tells the world and those close to you. Your tongue is like fire, be careful. Jas 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! Do not get this mixed up with tongues of the Holy Spirit. If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain (James 1:26). A wagging tongue is usually a symbol of an empty heart. God said so. The Lord, speaking about those who are filled with all unrighteousness in Romans 1:28-32, mentions fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whispering, backbitings, and other abominable practices. Now notice carefully that maliciousness (character assassination), envy (jealousy which produces gossip), debate (leading to boisterous argumentation), malignity, whispering (gossip in quiet, hushed tones), and backbitings are all partakers of the same judgment that shall be pronounced upon fornicators (sex-hungry maniacs) and murderers. Look at verse 32: Who knowing the Judgment of God, that they which commit such things are. worthy of death.
In Galatians 5:19-21, the Holy Spirit lists seventeen abominations, and uncleanness (a dirty, smut-filled mouth), hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, heresies, and envyings-all having to do with the REASON FOR or the RESULT OF a poison-filled, uncontrollable tongue-are under the anathema or condemnation of God. The devil's reward, at the end of the trail, for gossipers is stated in verse 21: They which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Tongues: Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Speaking tongues is wonderful intimacy with God. It is something that happens being baptized in the Holy Spirit with fire. I am here to say if you are blessed in this, you have a tool that no other can understand when you are speaking to God. The devil does not understand tongues, this keeps him from knowing what you are doing. This is a language of love. Study 1Cor.14

Treasure; Prov. 4:23 keep thy heart with all thy diligence, for out of it are the issues of life. 1Thess.5:21. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
22. Abstain from all appearance of evil. This is true treasure to give to your children, not money. Laying up treasure in heaven is being obedient and tithing and giving to the poor, being of good works. God said a good wife is a treasure. Yet, He also said , let me paraphrase, she can be like a dripping faucet. Treasures can be used wisely or tossed or spent foolishly, how are you using your treasure? A real treasure is shared and not hoarded. These things, lay up treasure in heaven. Builds up your retirement portfolio in heaven so to speak. The greatest treasure to me is God’s love.
Trials; Trials prepare us for promotion. Trials are inevitable… James 1:1-4 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. 2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. I really believe that this is telling us to be glad that adversity or trials comes are way. For if we are obedient and patient that everything will work out, and we will be please with the outcome. The verse above is saying to me be expectant of a joyous outcome when trails face you. Trials are completely unpredictable. They are to be confronted head on with Jesus at your side. Arm yourself with the word of God. Renew your mind with Jesus in your personal relationship with Him.
Trinity: This subject needs you to have the assignment of looking this up and studying until you have understanding from God and His word, then confirmation. The reference to the Trinity is ALTV 1Pe 1:2; & Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost;
The one, living God reveals Himself to us in the Bible as the Trinity (Three-unity).
•God the Father is called God (Romans 1:7). •God the Son is called God (Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 1:8)
God the Holy Spirit is called God (Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18)
The trinity is basis of our salvation, for it is these three entities in the one Godhead have combined to love us, to provide for us, guide us, & save us from all sin. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: - Deuteronomy 6:4;
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: - Matthew 28:19; Luke 1:35.
The true Biblical doctrine of the oneness of God expresses His corporate unity. Jesus is one God with His Father. This is what Jesus meant when He said, "I and my Father are one." (John 10:30). John 3:34; 8:17-18; 17:20-22; For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. - 1 John 5:7; And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. Isaiah 6:3; Isaiah said Holy three times, The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
1Jn 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: Rom 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 1Tit. 2:5; Heb. 7:24, Heb. 7:25, Heb. 9:24; Gen.4:9; Jn.14:16; 23-26; Rom.8:16:17.
This is who God is; God the Father, the Godhead, who no one sees that lives in the heavens above man. Ex.33:20; The Bible teaches that the Father is God, that Jesus is God, and that the Holy Spirit is God. The God head is there to help us train up and become who He created us for, fellowship. Then we must learn and be sanctified so we can fellowship with Him. The Bible also teaches that there is only one God. Though we can understand some facts about the relationship of the different persons of the Trinity to one another, ultimately, it is incomprehensible to the human mind. However, this does not mean it is not true or not based on the teachings of the Bible. Like I have said so many times, ask God for clarity on any question you have. My way of looking at it is God is sovereign, Plain and simple He is God All Mighty, and He visited us to teach us and love us through Jesus. Jesus is Lord our salvation and author of the Gospels. Heb.12:2 Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. - Acts 2:32-33.
Although the word “Trinity” was not coined until later, the doctrine of the Holy Trinity was nevertheless present in the early church and was the belief of Christians as it is has been the doctrinal faith of Christians throughout the centuries and today. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. – Revelation 4:8. It is true that the word “Trinity” is not present in the Bible but the doctrine is there, just as the doctrine of “Monotheism” (belief in a single God) is in the Scriptures without the actual word being present in the text.
I believe this is the most misunderstood and the most difficult thing about the Christian concept, that is the Trinity. That there is one God who is three, HUH! ??? People there is no way I can adequately explain it to everyone’s satisfaction. My answer is to ask God for understanding. One day in Heaven it will truly be answered. God is infinitely greater than we are, He is the one true trail boss, ranch foreman in the sky who we cannot see,,, so to speak. Therefore we should not expect to be able to fully understand Him. The trinity is a mystery and your walk unravels it, the more of a relationship with the Trinity the less of a mystery.
The Bible is our only true written source, it teaches that the Father is God, that Jesus is God, and that the Holy Spirit is God. The Bible also teaches that there is only one God. By this one must understand God is with us always, through His gift to you, by your Holy Spirit, and Jesus being our intercessor and savior, to our Father God in Heaven.
Troubled Waters: ***Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Life throws garbae and problems in your path, it is your reproof, your endurance builder, your preparation for Heaven, building your measure. Look up helpful scripture in the side panel reference of the scriptures and in the concordance. Asa a great man said once, dung happens. Luk 21:19 By your endurance you will save your life. Luk 6:45 Good people do the good that is in them. But evil people do the evil that is in them. The things people say come from inside them. Psa_27:13, Psa_27:14, Psa_37:7, Psa_40:1; Rom_2:7, Rom_5:3, Rom_8:25, Rom_15:4; 1Th_1:3; 2Th_3:5; Heb_6:11, Heb_6:15, Heb_10:36; Jam_1:3, Jam_5:7-11; Rev_1:9, Rev_2:2, Rev_2:3, Rev_3:10; Rev_13:10, Rev_14:12
Joh_14:1, Joh_14:2 Find your own verse and comfort. Girded strength to do battle; Ps.138:7,8 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies; and thy right hand shall save me… Ps.18:36: Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip. 37, 38, 39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto battle; thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me. Adversity and circumstance are part of life that you cannot escape. God is the way through it. Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. It is God’s battle. Jam 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 1 Peter 5: 7 Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. 2Chron.20:15 …Thus saith the Lord unto you. Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. Ps.116, 117, & 118. Bottom line: Pro.3:5 trust in the Lord with all thine heart; lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy path. Bind up satan, cast into the sea. Then cast you cares to God and let Him take care of everything. While waiting be busy about God’s business and He will be busy about yours. By being a doer of the word, your character is being molded by God’s hand, not yours.
Triune; Read above Spirit, Body, and Soul; the soul, the body, & spirit, the marrow your spirit, the flesh your body, and the meat your soul, (that is who you are and your character). The triune of man.Heb.4: 12 For the word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than a two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul, and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The text above shows that man is body, soul, and spirit. 1Thes. 5:23 and Hebrews 4:12 are proof that the soul and the spirit are not the same.
Trust: Trust and faith kind of go hand in hand. Ps.37:3-5; Ps.115:9-11; 118:8&9; Is.50:10;…should not trust in ourselves or friends 2Co.1:9; Mt.7:5; Mt.27:43 …he trusted in God, let him.
Understanding: Knowledge; intelligence; discernment; ability to comprehend and judge; Ask God and put your faith in God and the word and ask for understanding: Prov.3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.
Vengeance; revenge: punishment that is inflicted in return for a wrong.
Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Wait or waiting on God: Waiting on the Lord, is misunderstood and the hardest to do at times. Yet, when you do, it is the bomb., if you trust Him with God like faith and be expectant of His promises. While waiting love someone, help some one. Ps.27:14 Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart; wait, I say, on the Lord. For those who are busy about God’s business, He is busy about theirs.
Weakness: When we cannot change something and there is no where to turn and we cry out, them Jesus steps in when He hears are cry. It is like a pardon from whatever you have gotten yourself into. He either shows mercy with a helping hand or delivers us from ourselves or the enemy. Our Father takes mercy on us and gives us His love, He delivers us by His grace. 2Co 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2Co 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
Weight control: Keep your mouth closed LOL. Exercise, eat right, Eat according to acid and alkaline.
Taking care of the temple. Jas.5:16 Confess your faults to one another, and pray one for the other, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Pro.13:25; Bind up the spirit of gluttony, indulgence, in the name of Jesus. Mt.16:19; 18:18; Ps.103:5; Ps.55:5; Prov.10:11Aisa.40:29.

Worship God. Add scripture. Gen. It is God’s given corporate purpose for us all. If we worship Him, we are blessed with the rest. Worship God in the same way you pray, all the time. 1 Peter 5: 7 Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for. There are so many of us who sing His promises in church in praise and worship. Yet we sit around on premises, we take no action Worshiping God is one of our main purposes. Phil.

Yahweh; In the Old Testament God declared that His name was YHWH (Exodus 6:3; 20:7; see also 3:14). Scholars believe that "YHWH," or "Yahweh" is the third person singular form of the ancient Hebrew verb, "haya," meaning "to be." The basic thrust of this verb describes the state of existence. As the third person form of haya, Yahweh literally means "He is," or "He exists." It is a description of who God is. He is the self-existing one. God's name, YHWH, is a full sentence. It just so happens to be the shortest sentence in any language--"I am." Who is our Father God Amighty Mt.6:33b seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
I saved the best for last, Yahweh our Father
