I use my pen to fight against social evil. We must stand up together to change this world to be a better place for the next generation.
Those Who Embraced Him And Took Hold Of His Name Were Given Authority To Become Children Of God.
You Should Expect Payback If You Go Through Temptation And Trial
The bible gives us some important information about the persecution, that is awaiting those who believe in Jesus. Luke 6:22 and 23 says blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, for the son of man’s sake. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for indeed your reward is great in heaven. For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets.
Second Corinthians chapter 4 verses 8 through 10 says we are hard-pressed on every side yet not crushed. We are perplexed but not in despair, persecuted but not forsaken, struck down but not destroyed, always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus. That the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our body. God is helping us by giving us these verses to know that there is persecution and there is a suffering that goes on for his namesake.
You have to remember that the price that you pay, it’s not as great as the reward that comes. God will make sure that you know his normal that he rewarded Jesus. Jesus pointed this out to me. After he was tempted in the desert, it says that angels came and ministered to him. He had an angel visitation. I'm asking you, and I'm pleading to you because my father in heaven is pleading through me to you. Would you please believe for an angel encounter after you’ve been tempted? They want to minister to you. He’s pleading through me that you should expect payback if you go through temptation and trial. You should expect an angel visitation.
They want to minister to you. Second Corinthians Chapter 4 verse 8 through 10 says we’re hard-pressed on every side. Do you feel that way sometimes? I do too. I tell my wife, I said. I feel the breath of the dragon down the back of my neck. It’s not like the angel but sometimes it happens and I don’t move. I don’t move from my spot. I mean, I keep moving because he’s causing me to triumph. I'm telling you, I do not allow that to influence my emotions or my direction of my thoughts. I consider not these things because it’s light and momentary things. When I grew up in Pennsylvania, they used to say. If you don’t like the weather just wait for two hours, it’ll change.
Romans 2:4 Or do you despise the riches of God’s goodness. Do you despise the riches of his goodness? Riches. Love to say that in church. Riches of his goodness, forbearance, and long-suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? The revelation of his goodness changed Moses. He said I'm going to allow my goodness to pass by you. It changed Moses. His face changed. He couldn’t die. God had to tell him to die. He took him up the mountain. He’s 120. He wouldn’t die, nothing wrong with him. Why? Because he spent all that time with God. He became a friend of God. His body was transformed. We don’t hear these kinds of ideas.
Remember that Elisha. Elisha died of a disease. But a soldier that was dead that touched his dead bones rose from the dead. Then they don’t have anything to say. What was that? It was the double portion of Elijah’s anointing in him that was in his bones. That is why Satan argued with Michael about where they were going to bury Moses' bones. Because wherever they buried it, he couldn’t get near it because of the glory. It would be holy ground. Where they were going to put it. Satan didn’t want it. You’re going to find out where that was someday.
Benefits and Authority of a Child Of God
I want to talk to you about the children of God now. What does it mean to be a child of God? What does it mean to be a child of a king? What did it mean to be a child of a priest? You had the privileges of that office as well. You remember the picture of John F Kennedy, and the little John F Kennedy Jr. was underneath his desk playing with his fire truck. No one else can go in there. I mean you can’t go in there anytime you want. He had privileges right because he was a son.
This is the idea that you have to keep in mind. That you got to get over, that you’re unworthy to be in that position. You are because you really were. But he’s made you worthy. If you go into this thing with Jesus, I'm just telling you, He’s not going to put up with it. When you see him and you fall to his feet, you say I'm not worthy. You cry on his feet. He’s going to grab you and get you up. He said I had made you worthy. I didn’t suffer and die for nothing. He’s gonna say no you’re a fellow heir. I'm serious, he’s not gonna let you go down there and do your thing.
The promise is that John said that. We’ve already quoted John 1:12 says. Those who embraced him and took hold of his name were given authority to become children of God. We embrace him and we have been given authority to be the children. That’s what Romans 8:15 confirms. We have the spirit of God inside of us, who is the spirit of acceptance. In Aramaic, it says, we have the spirit of acceptance. We are accepted and it cries out. Father that spirit of acceptance in us confirms that we are children. It’s already built within us to enjoy being a child.
Anything other than that is your mental realm. If you haven’t entered into that, you don’t have to ask to go into the holy of holies. You are a child you get to go in for free anytime you want. You don’t have to set an appointment. When you sit at the table that the Lord sets before you. In the presence of your enemies, to honor you. You can eat from anything that’s on that table. All the benefits. He’s honoring you. It says in Aramaic in your honor. David said you set a table in your presence. In the presence of my enemies in honor of me. It says in Aramaic honor. He’s honoring you as a child.
Have you considered my servant Job? This is my son whom I'm well pleased with. Jesus then grabbed John and said there’s never been anyone greater in the kingdom up until John. That means Abraham, all the patriarchs, all the prophets. John is the greatest. That’s what he said. But he said from now on the least in the kingdom is greater than John. That’s you. Jesus said it’s in red. You won’t hear this because this is God’s normal. Which doesn’t work in most churches. God’s normal is not allowed in a religious system because then they can’t control you. When you go to church, you go to church to be built up by the fivefold ministry. If that isn’t happening, is it really functioning? Is it destroying your dreams and your vision? Then it’s working against God. Is this possible? Is it possible just like what happened with the Pharisees? Is it possible for the institution? Jesus said they were putting bondages on people instead of taking them off. He said you’re supposed to be setting people free. But you’re laying them down with more things.
I just get upset because I feel the religions in the nation made Christianity corrupt. Jesus never designed the church to be like it is. He designed it to be the most powerful institution on the earth, his body. What can be greater? The only thing greater than his body is his head. He is the head. We are the body. We receive life from the vine. Ephesians chapter 1 verse 19 through 21. The Passion Translation says I pray continually that you would experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power that’s made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement for this immense power as it works through you. This is the mighty power that was released when Jesus was raised from the dead. The same power that rose Jesus from the dead is the advertisement coming through you.
Your life is full of power. Immense power. That’s an advertisement. It’s the same power that rose Jesus from the dead. This is the way it is. This is the mighty part that was released when God rose Jesus from the dead. Exalt him to the place of the highest honor and supreme authority in heaven. That same power that rose Jesus from the dead and put him on the throne is within us. We are seated with him in the heavenly realms. Therefore, a Child of God is exalted above every ruler, authority, government, and realm of power in existence. He is gloriously enthroned over every name that is ever praised. Not only in this age but also in the coming age.
Continue with Philippians Ch. 2 verses 9 and 10 says, therefore, God has highly exalted him and given him the name which is above every name. That in the name of Jesus every knee will bow of those in heaven and those on the earth and those under the earth. Under the earth. You’ll find out soon. The government knows this too. Romans Ch. 8 verses 18 through 19 say. I am convinced that any suffering we endure is less than nothing compared to the magnitude of the glory that is about to be unveiled within us. The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters! You can see the association that the one who paved the way for us and has already accomplished. This has gone before us and now we are fellow heirs, co-heirs with Jesus. We are joint-heirs with him. We’re heirs of God, joint-heirs with Jesus.
Everything that he obtained, he bought so that we can sit with him in honor in your spirit. I encounter this. There will be no change in me when I die. The veil of the flesh and the soul will be obscuring my beauty. Would be obscuring who I am. So, that I have to be diligent down here to walk in it. It wasn’t something that would just come naturally. I had to be diligent to meditate on the word of God and pray and don’t listen to crazy people. But have crazy friends in God. Don’t listen to people that were speaking things because it might be the Peter syndrome. They just kind of slant you in a certain direction before you know it. You’re way off and it’s like how did this happen. One step at a time. But it was one voice at a time and these demon spirits will find the weakest link in your family and your friends and your government. They will find the weakest link and they will start to deteriorate you.
I've had to shut those voices off. You’re my family that’s what Jesus said. Hey, your mom’s here and your brothers. These are my mom and my brothers. The ones who hear my word and obey it. You can imagine what an insult that would be to some religions, not to mention them. Here is the one that seals it up for me. Romans 8:17. It says for as many who are led by prophets of God, no it says by the spirit of God they are the sons of God. If you’re led by the spirit, you’re automatically a child of God. You didn’t receive a spirit that caused you to go into bondage. You didn’t receive bondage you received freedom. The spirit leads you. It’s a bondage to fear. You’ve received this spirit of adoption so that you can cry, father. The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. If we are children then we’re heirs. Heirs of God. Joint heirs with Christ.
