Spiritually Alive in Christ

Peace and an abundance of grace, from the Father and our LORD Jesus Christ. There is a stark contrast between the”flesh” and the “Spirit”, these two wage war against each other every waking day. In order for anyone to have access to “The Spirit” of God he/she must be born again for this is absolutely necessary,  “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” (John 3:17)

Since God is a incorruptible Spirit ( John 4:24), anyone who desires to be reconciled to God, must receive Jesus His only begotten Son thereby, joining together with God and dying to self. Jesus Christ declares to Nicodemus, “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. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” (John 3:5-6)

The flesh is in a fallen state because of our first parents Adam and Eve, their sin in the Garden of Eden has brought forth a grievous thing to all of their descendants. But thanks be unto Jesus Christ who “condemned sin in the flesh,” (Romans 8:3)

“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,  envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19-20)

Let us walk according to “The Spirit” which produces good fruit, fruit that will last holy and acceptable to God. By Jesus’ death for us “we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God” (Rom 8:12-14) so living by the flesh results in death but if you are walking “by the Spirit” you will “put to death the deeds of the body (or flesh)” and live.

Do so Beloved of the Father of grace, in the name of Jesus Christ amen and amen.

 

God Has Promised

Deuteronomy 12:7
“There, in the presence of the Lord your God, you and your families shall eat and shall rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, because the Lord your God has blessed you”.

Why Did You Come?

If you have come to Jesus, the wonder is that you already belonged to the Father, and the Father gave you to Jesus. You were not chosen because you came; you came because you were chosen. That’s what Jesus said: “All that the Father gives me will come to me. . . . Yours they were, and you gave them to me” (John 6:37; 17:6).

Commend Them to Christ!

Oh, you who want unfailing comfort, I commend you to Christ! In Him alone there is no failure. Rich men are disappointed in their treasures. Learned men are disappointed in their books. Husbands are disappointed in their wives. Wives are disappointed in their husbands. Parents are disappointed in their children. Statesmen are disappointed when, after many a struggle, they attain place and power. They find out, to their cost, that it is more pain than pleasure—that it is disappointment, annoyance, incessant trouble, worry, vanity, and vexation of spirit. But no man was ever disappointed in Christ. ~ J.C. Ryle

Leaders Where Art Thou ?

Romans 8:14(NIV) “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God”. Why is there such a disconnect today of the things of God? It seems as if there are millions who do not consciously submit to the calling of the Father of the heavenly lights. The Bible says in ( Romans 8:22 )” We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

The earth itself cries out in pain, in eager expectation, waiting for the sons and daughters of God alike, too emerge out from the darkness and take their places. My intent in this message is not to condemn, but to awake those of you with that divine summoning in your very core. Will you do it will you awaken?

There are countless children across this country, and the world at large who hurtfully await you ( Romans 8:23 ). Will you do it?, will you be lead by the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Jesus? This is a holy moment, a divine moment, a calling for the quickening of the Sons and Daughters of God to arise to there rightful places of righteousness.

Isaiah 60:1 “Arise, Shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you” If you do not intended to help then my advice to you would be is get out of the way!! Do not perpetuate violence and ignorance. May our God be with you, Amen
