Two ways to get to heaven: you die and go there, or God brings heaven to you on earth after you get to the end of your earthly means. It’s possible for God to be in a place and not made his presence known. When God makes his presence known, you have a genuine slice of heaven right there. God weakens your strength to replace it with his strength according the exceeding great and mighty resurrection power which he demonstrated in raising Christ Jesus from the dead. All the discomfort in life that we feeel is God attempting to displace our strength with his strength which exceeds ours by as far as the heavens are above the earth: another way of saying eternal. Some people simply just don’t like to go certain places, or just avoid them altogether. Who knew that God had such dispositions about where he desires to dwell or visit. I guess the idea is that God could actually be there but just not make his presence known. In the presence of the Lord there is the fullness of Joy and pleasures for evermore. God can be present but not make his presence known.

One of those times when I was going through a really, really, really, reallllllllllllly rough patch in life; I felt inconvenienced by this inexplicable urge of joy, if you could call it that…..like birds singing outside at 3 O’clock in the morning. It was such an out of place anachronism that I frankly resented it’s showing up in the context of this reallllllllllllly rough patch of time I was going through. I mean this irresistible urge to give expression to joy in some form or another; I flat out didn’t cooperate. I thought I’d ride the wave of reality, which amounted to life stinks…..WRONG CHOICE!. I think I must have strangled that urge of joy until it was a non-issue so I could just go on with my ill-tempered mood. When hard times hang around well beyond their expiration date and the God of all comforts isn’t all that comfortable; joy is not what’s on your mind, but when you hold true to God’s purpose and he begins to move heaven into the earth for your help joy happens to be his calling card, and if you can’t tell you are in for a tour of the old shed for a whopping. In the presence of the Lord there is Joy; God doesn’t like to go where there sullen ill-tempered spirits are congregating.

No human feats of accomplishments are recognized in the kingdom of God. That is why Jesus instructed his disciples to bring no script…. no human script to the ministry. Jesus said the clergy who trust only in human efforts to get things done in the church cannot enter the kingdom of God. Going to heaven, and entering into the kingdom of heaven are two different things; in the same way that raising the dead which Jesus asked us to do and the coming day when everyone that is dead shall be raised back to life are to different things. You can enter heaven as an infant of days, but you cannot do the works of God as a child in understanding. Children drink milk, but strong meat is for the mature believer, and no one is asking for strong meat; no one seem to have the stomach for it.

We have to make straight the way of the Lord for him to come to us. This is done by keeping his word and acting consistently with his word. In my case I needed to maintain a spirit of joy like when Paul was in Jail and he began to sing then the jail doors were opened. God never did anything without the word of his power; and we need to get in line with his word instead of how we feel. I’m not defending my actions but sometimes you can be so put-out that all you want to do is just push the table over and experess your displeasure, but if you want to see the Lord in your situation it would be well to remember the wrath of man does not cause the righteousness of God to be seen; and what all the discomfort is about in the first place is God seeking to move you beyong your human range of good or bad feelings to know his power.

In the kingdom of God we are told we have received the mind of Christ and we therefore know all things, but we neither believe that anymore than we believe anything else that is told us; so no one even investigates it lest we be brought up on charges of blasphemy.Humans have extraordinary abilities but none of those can help with giving life to dead people; yet in Christ we have a life-giving spirit and are told to give life to the dead as Jesus did...we are still waiting for no one knows what. When a person has photographic memory or total recall this is called eidetic memory. It is the ability to recall sounds, images, or objects from one’s memory with extreme accuracy. Examples of eidetic memory include the effort of Akira Haraguchi who recited from memory the first 100,000 decimal places of pi and the drawings of Stephen Wiltshire (who is an autistic savant) – his recreation of Rome is shown in the video below. Kim Peek, the inspiration for the autistic (Peek is not actually autistic though) character of Raymond Babbit in the movie Rainman, also possesses eidetic memory – among other things he can recall some 12,000 books from memory.

When Jesus said you have to eat my flesh and drink by blood; the entire church got up and left him except for his immediate disciples. To the extent that we follow their example we will not enter nor will you if you follow them. All things that are done in the kingdom of God are done as a result of God putting forth his power to accomplish it. No amount of human effort can accomplish anything that is done in the kingdom. When you look at strong meat, it look like something offensive on the surface: cannibalism, heresy, blasphemy. That’s why no decent, self-respecting human is going to do go there. Are you kidding me….speaking to storms, and winds, and the waves of the sea • calling dead people back to life • walking on water • feeding thousands with few fish and loaves of bread • talking to trees, and mountains • walking on water • I mean…come-on…give me a break, there are no such things as demons or spirits—and we are supposed to know all things cause we have the mind of Christ—to boot no less. Those however who respect God have no problem with it; God-respecting people are who can enter into the kingdom.

When they say to the temple be built, God says I will do it; when they to the foundations be laid down, and to the decayed places be raised up: God says I will perform the doing of those things. Jesus said all the mighty miracles that he did, he did not do them of himself, but whatsoever he saw his Father doing, that is what he does and the Father will show us greater things that we will do as well as all the mighty works he had done in his three years of ministry.

If those people standing right there within earshot of Jesus when he spoke missed the message; do you suppose that we who are 2000 years removed somehow have a better grasp on it? Well if that’s the case, answer me this; why then is no one doing what he asked those who profess to believe him to do: which is all the mighty works that he did in his three years of ministry. Jesus has every right to expect us to do what he did and even greater works because he plainly told us that he did none of those mighty works, but what he saw the Father doing in heaven, he echoed that on earth, being the perfect image of our Father who is willing to show us the same things that he showed to Jesus and greater even things. What is required on our part is the faith of a child. Just believe instead of getting frozen in the trap of analysis paralysis.

People are always giving God a bad rap for all the evil that goes on in the world. If we are going to blame God we should be willing to share in the blame as well because he says that whatever he could do he has made it possible for we who believe in him to do it as well. Job 22:30 says, if you acquaint yourself with the Lord you shall deliver the island of the innocent: and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands. You shall decree a thing and it shall come to pass. We have Jesus who in the beginning was the word, and was made flesh. Herod thought he was John Baptist come back to life and others thought he was Elijah because of the mighty works that showed forth themselves in him and according to Jesus those works are to show forth themselves in us as well. Today however instead of showing forth those works, Christians do works of altruistic humanism that atheists can do by simple human efforts. Nothing of the works Jesus did could be accomplished in that way, which is a damning revelation on the state of Christian faith in the Western church culture. Is it an exaggeration where Jesus asks: will I find faith on earth when I return, and he is soon to return so the question is answered in the negative today.

The place that we keep our treasures is in our hearts. That’s the place where we hold the things that are most valued to us and they are constantly in our mouths as we talk about them. We talk about what we believe in. Job said he esteemed the word of God more than his necessary food, because man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God. The things that are in our hearts should be in our mouths and that is the word of God…heart to mouth living. As we keep the word of God we cannot help but to speak it and speaking the word of God makes us the messengers of God. God says he confirms those words that his messengers speak and performs the council of his servant.

When they say to the temple be built, God says I will do it; when they to the foundations be laid down, and to the decayed places be raised up: God says I will perform the doing of those things. Jesus said all the mighty miracles that he did, he did not do them of himself, but whatsoever he saw his Father doing, that is what he does and the Father will show us greater things that we will do as well as all the mighty works he had done in his three years of ministry.

Where we are instructed to go and heal those we encounter in the way, and tell them that the kingdom of God is near; Jesus is having us pass out samples of the power of the world to come. Today however with the singular exception of salvation, we put off everything of the kingdom God that is given, deferring them to a future time, and a world that is to come, and only offer words as comfort to a suffering world. Jesus clearly sent message to John before he was executed saying: tell John the gospel is preached to the poor, and the dead like Lazarus are raised (to the comfort of they who would have suffered that loss). Jesus himself said: that you may be assured of sins forgiven, I say to the sick of the palsy; arise and be made whole. Demonstrated power witnesses of the kingdom of God that is to come, not words

The kingdom of God is within us, and that field represents our hearts. In this way you can get an idea about what people think about the kingdom of God by how much they talk about it; bearing in mind the kingdom of God is represented by the things Jesus sent his disciples out to do and having done it, tell those for whom such things were done that the kingdom of God is near to them; meaning the world where these things are the prevailing conditions is coming to earth, but for now such conditions are provided in measure, by Jesus and his disciples. Since a man’s money are supposed to be in the things he is talking about.

The works that Jesus asks the church to do makes them the panacea of the world, but they inexplicably walk away from it to do works of altruistic humanism that even Atheists can do without the power of God.

Busy ineffectiveness is just a step above apathy, but for all intents and purposes it still doesn’t measure up to what Jesus asked us to do. Without faith…specifically faith that is informed by love it is impossible to please God, and that includes works that are done without faith or as well as those done with faith in means other than the one God prescribed. We could even go so far as to give our bodies to be burnt, and we will still suffer loss because such faith was not driven by love, and the definition of that love is where God knows it is love because it is done in obedience to his directions. Disobedience is the opposite of love, and we the church have not yet obeyed the Lord where he commanded us to do the works that he himself did in the day of his flesh. We complain often about how the rich could end world hunger, and cure much of the world’s ills if they were less selfish with their resources. Jesus left power in the hands of the church to do that, but they are too resigned to cowardice and fear to follow through. People are starting to look around at the Christian faith and are asking some searching questions about what we are doing.

They (the clergy) cross land and sea to make one convert twice the child of hell as they are. This warning that Jesus gave to the leaders of the church saying that when they do not enter into the kingdom of God, or (when they fail to live up to type of ministry that he an his 12 trained disciples demonstrated and then passed along to them to continue doing), is that they would instead produce disciples that would be twice the child of hell as they for not obeying him. Today you look across the globe and what you see is a stunning fulfillment of that warning. For the better part of the last 1000 years the church has produced some of fiercest most outspoken Atheists in history. Like Darwin, they all come from within the church, and are twice as smart, know the bible better than most of the clergy, and are exceeding vexed and bitter because of what they see as gross incompetence in them.

Over the last several decades they have torn prayer and any spiritual expressions from out of the schools and public life of America so that even the nativity is a pariah in towns of America, produced the greatest killing fields in abortion than all the wars fought by humanity from the dawn of his inception, created doctrines of evolution that have swallow the world apostasy and chased Christianity from the public forums around the globe. Almost any of the worlds major religions are accepted and respected at face value, but Christianity is derided at every corner and every opportunity. This is the child of the clergy whom Jesus warned would be produced as twice the child of hell because they, the clergy would not enter into the kingdom of God nor would allow them, the converts (disciples of the new clergy) to go in either, so they have turned to burn the house down.

When the disciples saw Jesus working they were amazed and asked themselves: what manner of man is this? Well when we look in the mirror and do not do what Jesus told us to do as he had done we have forgotten the manner of man that we are….that is the manner of man that this same Jesus is. The reason the life that Christians have is called resurrection life is not because they believe in someone who is supposed to be dead, but because they do what Jesus who was dead use to do, to show that he is alive in them. When we read the word of God it says we are supposed to do what we hear and read the instructions saying to us to do, and if we don’t we deceive ourselves and forget what manner of man we were. As we look at scripture, we see Jesus working miracles and telling us to do likewise , and we were supposed to make necessary adjustments so the word could become flesh again in us by living in our flesh, but we walked away and forget that we are supposed to be Jesus in the works we do. When the world sees us they are supposed to take a second look and be impressed that we are Jesus come back form the dead because of the mighty works that show forth themselves in us. That is what resurrection life means; Jesus living in us so it is not we who live anymore, but Jesus living in us and continuing to do what he did in his three years of ministry on earth.

Our works are supposed to follow us not...fall-on-us, and those are to be borrowed from Jesus’ capabilities to produce his works in our generation. That trusting in God’s supply of power by Jesus is the works that are to follow. Whatsoever is not of faith is sin and no sin can enter heaven. If our works are not showcased in the gallery of what Jesus did and told us to do we run the risk of suffering great loss because it was not of faith, but where we trusted in our human abilities to do only what even unbelievers can do without Jesus, the power of God.

Faith comes by hearing the word of God, and is passed on from faith to faith, form one generation to the next generation. Herod thought that Jesus was John Baptist come back from the dead and that’s why mighty works were done by the hand of Jesus. When the world sees us they should get the impression that we are Jesus Christ come back from the dead accounting for the mighty works done by our hands according the exceeding greatness of the mighty power of God that is with us when we raise the dead and do all the other works of Jesus that he told us to do. Today everyone is busy making disciples but nobody is a disciple of Jesus in the ministry that he demonstrated across his 3 years on earth, and then told us to do the same and even greater things. Disciples should be as their masters but there is an open and I might say bogus acknowledgment that nobody can be like Jesus…..HELLO!! Jesus’ 12 disciples were like him; they did the same work. They raised the dead and many of the same works Jesus did. Talk about the missing link of the power of God between Jesus and we who profess to be his disciples. I suppose now the argument might arise: well, nobody can be like Jesus’ disciples? If disciples cannot be as their masters…as they should, they will continue making disciples after themselves; all new converts will be made like themselves instead of the masters image. Jesus warned of this; where leaders do not enter into the kingdom of God, but cross land and sea to evangelize, and make the new converts twice the child of hell as they.

I AM UNWILLING TO WAIT ANOTHER 100 YEAR TO DO WHAT 2000 YEARS AGO JESUS TOLD US TO DO; AND THAT WAS NOT TO JUST GO AND PREACH THE GOSPEL, BECAUSE THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT IN WORD BUT IN POWER: AND THAT POWER IS JESUS WITHOUT WHOM WE HAVE ONLY THE APPEARANCE, OR JUST ANOTHER FORM OF GODLINESS.

The common lay person is beginning to awaken to the gross lapse in the kind of ministry that Jesus demonstrated and what it has devolved into in the hands of these physicians of no value.

“Most of what is offered at many Western churches, across denominational lines and including the most progressive Emerging/Emergent churches, can be accomplished by human effort and willpower alone. We cannot offer the wider world, a world reeling from personal, systemic and global evils, anything that they cannot get elsewhere. Honestly, sometimes I feel we may as well just be the Boy Scouts or Rotary Club. Do we honestly believe that Jesus’ Incarnation, Crucifixion, Resurrection and Glorification and our Baptism with the Holy Spirit all happened so that we could be one of many organizations that help people? To be one more source of morality and ethics?” …speakfaithfully.wordpress.com

At first the leaders told the world that it was unlawful for them to read the word of God, and now the would tell you it is unlawful to speak the word of God

What do you suspect is going to happen if you chance speak the word or God? Are you going to go up in a puff of smoke or experience a veil lifting from your faculties that prevented you from grasping spiritual truths beyond saving grace. The word of God is like a seed which if you don’t sow it, it can never produce after its kind in us the life of God that we should have. If you want to sow the work of God you have to say the word of God.We need to find out how these things are true and how to say them to honor God instead of men. God said if you ask for wisdom he will give it to you and not brow beat you down with insults.

BY FAITH IN CHRIST…Old things are passed away, and all things are become a new creation in you. Whoever now lives in you therefore, is not you anymore, but it is God…God is God and he is in you; because you being old in Adam, are passed away with old things. Having passed away, you are dead, yet still you are living as Christ, and Christ is God; but there is a gag order and you can’t say that?

God’s life belongs to God
You are living his life, so you must be ———

The foundation of the church is based on the confession that Jesus is the Son of God, and so are you because you believe on his finished work that makes it so.

If you see the Son, you see the Father, the Father is God
You are his son, I see you, so you must be ———

Whatever the father is, that’s what his sons are
The Father is God, we’re his sons, so we must be ———

What ever the Son is, that’s what we are
The Son is God, so we must be ———

What ever God says is true
He said we are gods, so you must be ————

Only God can do God’s work
God told us to do his kind of works, so we must be ———

The glory of God cannot go to anyone else but God
God gave his glory to us, so we must be ———

The heaven, and the heaven of heavens belong to the Lord God
He has given it to us, so we must be ———

Whatever you do to me, you do to God
So God must be ——

God’s mind belong to God,
He gave us his mind, so we must be ———

God’s name belongs to God
He gave us his name, so we must be ———

All God’s possessions belong to God
He gave them to us; we have them, so we must be ———

God told us that we are gods
God cannot lie, so we must be————

WHO TOLD US THAT WE COULDN’T SAY THESE THINGS? It wasn’t God.
It was the same people who’s been leading us, and have lived in disobedience to the expressed will of God over 2000 years now. If you believe what men say, then what God says is of greater force, and deserves infinitely greater respect. When we refuse to do what God tells us to do we deceive ourselves, and rob ourselves of God’s glory which we are called to inherit as his sons. The church is based on the foundation that we who believe in Jesus are the sons of God as well as Jesus.

Philippians 3:3 says that we are the circumcision who worship God in spirit and have no confidence in doing things according to human ability. Well if not in human ability what other ability then do we have confidence in to do all things. We are to do things the way Christ does them but if we are honest, all our confidence is squarely in our human abilities when we do things. Think for a moment what was the last thing you did just the way Jesus did them when he ministered on earth? Hive knowledge will never allow us to operate on the level of Jesus in ministry, that’s why we have to break with hive knowledge, because it has gone wrong, and there is no heart to moth living.
