THE POWER OF KNOWING GOD

Matthew 14:25-31 (KJV) 25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, He walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

I have heard this passage taught most often in a manner that criticized Peter. I find that approach interesting, considering none of Peter’s “scorners” had walked on water themselves. SELAH.

Recognize Jesus never condemned Peter. He rebuked his stinking thinking and behaviors, but He never condemned him. Each time, throughout Scripture, when Peter faltered Jesus gave him Divine Knowledge or God’s Truth. Each time Jesus supplied him with knowledge that reestablished his faith and redirected his focus. In the case of walking on the water, Jesus’ correction rebuked Peter’s fear and faith in the threat of the wind and waves, and turned his attention back to the sovereignty of our God.

KNOWING OUR GOD IN THE TESTS
Jesus Christ said all believers would be tested by evil and flesh in this world:

John 16:33b (KJV) In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Only God truly knows the heart and constitution of every human. He is the Master Potter, only allowing the turns and pressures sufficient to transform and restore our lives, as His sons (offspring, image, and likeness). He alone knows the level/strength of our faith, how much we can bear or endure. He reveals this truth in His Word saying,

1 Corinthians 10:13 (NRSV) No testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and He will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing, He will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.

Peter’s “faith failure” is common to humanity, but if we use the tools of true repentance,faith, confession, and obedience to keep our hearts and minds in agreement with the character, Word, and will of our God, He will provide a way of escape, or the strength to endure, conquer, and overcome. We must never lose faith in the reality that our God reigns over good and evil, and every created thing (named and unnamed) must bow and conform to His Truth, power, and authority. ONLY BELIEVE.

Whether in everyday life, or deliverance ministry, our God promises that the weapons evil forms against us will not be able to prosper (Isaiah 54:17). Why? He will expose them, and show us how to disarm and dismantle them. He promises we can live in the secret place He sets aside for us, the place where we safely watch the wicked suffer because of their evildoing (Psalm 91:8). ONLY BELIEVE.

THE KNOWLEDGE OF OUR GOD IS POWER
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the knowledge and power of our God revealed (Romans 1:16-17)! No matter the situation, we must know (like Jesus) that our God is the only True and Living God and the Final Authority on all things. People of God, we must know our God, the One who orchestrates our steps, is willing to teach us how to allow Him to lead.

We must know our Heavenly Father loves us, desires we succeed and fulfill our destinies, and yes, even have the desires of our hearts. We must know that His Love and His Truth willingly lights the paths of our lives (James 1:5). We must get to know our God personally, through His Word (Scripture/Jesus), and His Holy Spirit.

PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE COMES BY APPLICATION AND EXPERIENCE

2 Peter 1:2-8 (NKJV) Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We will never “know” the level or strength of our faith and authority until we apply God’s Truth to our lives, trusting Him when we experience tests and trials. We will never “know” the sovereignty of our God if we never face things that are impossible for us alone. I use the term “know” meaning: (1) to understand, (2) to be acquainted with personally, (3) to be convinced of, and (4) to be skillful or wise in (Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon, Merriam-Webster Dictionary).

We obtain information through study and/or exposure. This information does not become knowledge until we are able to understand it. It is only after understanding this information does it become useful; only then are we able to recognize, classify, measure, and apply it.

THROUGH THE EYES OF THE APOSTLE PAUL
The Apostle Paul shares the revelation of humanity’s need to “know” our God. He tells us in Philippians 3:10-11 that he gave up his earthly goals and pursuits, along with the accolades of humanity, so that he could truly pursue and come to “know” Jesus Christ. He wanted to “know” Christ through personal experience. He understood the need to become more acquainted with Him and understand His Person more completely. He understood the need to experience the same Holy Spirit power that snatched Jesus Christ from the grips of death.

NOTE: The Apostle Paul understood that application of God’s Word attracts the attention of the enemy. More importantly, he understood using his faith in God promises during these situations would give him greater understanding of our God, and mold his thinking, choosing, and believing. Applying and living the knowledge of God, (the Gospel) IS the power that works to transform us into sons in the kingdom of God.

“WE MUST KNOW WHAT THE FIGHT IS ABOUT”
We must know that satan wants to keep spiritual information (the Gospel, God’s Truth) from being known by humanity.

Luke 8:12 (KJV) Those beside the road are the people who have heard; then the devil comes and takes the message of God (the Gospel) away from their hearts, so that they will not believe in Me as the Messiah and be saved (delivered, set free, blessed…).

We must know that testing (temptation to walk beneath the reality of whom our God had made us) comes from satan alone. We must know we live in a world wherein Truth wars against deception, Light wars against darkness, Good wars against evil, and the flesh wars against the Holy Spirit. The fight is over the revelation knowledge of Jesus Christ!

We must know, satan knows that the earth and all it contains was given to humanity by our Heavenly Father. We must know he is jealous (the source of his cruelty) beyond natural description that our Heavenly Father created humanity in His own image and likeness, with access to His power and authority. Humanity possesses the very things Lucifer (now satan) lusted after, and he hates us for it.

We must know satan’s time is very, very short, and all his tormented soul works feverishly to delay what he knows is inevitable. We must know that satan and his cohorts are fully acquainted by experience of their absolute defeat by Jesus Christ, but they do not want humanity to know, recognize, become acquainted or skillful in this Truth!

THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IS OUR ARMOR AND OUR WEAPONS

Ephesians 6:13-18 (KJV) 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. Stand therefore, (1) having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the (2) breastplate of righteousness; And your (3) feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking (4) the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take (5) the helmet of salvation, and (6) the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints:

1. Truth: the knowledge of God’s Word, which is Truth,

2. Righteousness: The knowledge that we are approved in the eyes of our God, because of the shed the Blood of Jesus,

3. Preparation of the Gospel of Peace: the knowledge of the Good News that God loves us and desires us to be whole (have peace in every area of life) and to share that with others,

4. Faith: the knowledge of power of belief in God, trusting Him and taking Him at His Word and acting upon it because of that belief,

5. Salvation: the knowledge that we are saved, and being saved (conversion, regeneration),

6. Spirit and the Word: The knowledge of power of the Anointed Word (promises) of God.

KNOWN BY GOD, HUMANITY, AND THE SPIRIT WORLD
Watchmen all over the world, we are already known by our God and others can attest to who we are. Remember also, knowing God and operating in His Word and Holy Spirit through the tests and trials makes us known to the spirit world.

Someone I respected greatly called me stubborn. It caused me to struggle and stammer a little, until I took the situation to God. Our Lord revealed to me that satan used this person to speak this to me. He revealed the wicked spirit (operating through this person) was frustrated at its inability to influence me to back down on a Scripturally based spiritual Truth! Our Lord let me know that I am known to have “stubborn” faith in the spirit realm. HALLELUJAH!

Watchmen all over the world, know that you too are known by God, humanity and the spirit world. Refuse to fear or back down from the threats of evil and deception. Though the Holy Spirit may tell you to hold your tongue, do not back down from your faith in and knowledge of our God and His Word. (The battle is in the spirit realm; know that satan will back down.)

James 4:7 (AMP) Submit to the authority of God. Resist the devil, stand firm against him, and he will flee from you.

FATHER GOD,
We love You. Thank You for Your love, faithfulness, and longsuffering. Thank You for Your Truth, Your Ways, and dumanis power. You promised to write Your Word in our hearts, and that no one will have to tell the other to know You, because we all will know You. Thank You for the fulfillment of Your Word. Thank You that the Ecclesia, the True Church of Jesus Christ is awaking from her slumber. Do all that is in Your heart, today and every day. In Jesus’ matchless name we pray. Amen, amen, and so be it!

Blessing in the Testing

Hebrews 12:2 (ERV)  We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the Leader of our faith, and He is the One who makes our faith complete. He suffered death on a cross. But He accepted the shame of the cross as if it were nothing. because of the joy He could see waiting for Him. And now He is sitting at the right side of God’s throne.

Watchmen all over the world,  we know that our God is the God of cycles and seasons. What a blessing is it for an individual to understand the season he/she is in; this understanding allows them to make and get the most out of their situations and circumstances. An indicator that we are in a new season, or a new place in our God is the tests that appear. May we pass each one.  There IS blessing in the testing.

Our God-given Standard of Truth
Jesus The Christ IS heaven’s Standard for the manifested son of God. Let us first take a look at the “Author and Finisher” of our faith (Hebrews 12:2):

Hebrews 5:7-9 (NIV) During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, He offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the One who could save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverent submission. Son though He was, He learned obedience from what He suffered and, once made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

Imagine, our God’s Word/human (Jesus) suffered, crucifying His flesh nature by honoring and obeying our Heavenly Father’s instructions (Word), as He passed through life’s lessons. Our God’s Word/human (Jesus) learned to live in humanity’s preordained, original habitat; He learned to crucify the flesh nature (fallen nature) of humanity , to submit it and be guided/controlled by our Heavenly Father’s instruction and Holy Spirit.

We learn the Way, the Truth, and the Life of a son of God and of kingdom living, as we watch Jesus The Christ in the Scripture. We must remember our God is not a respecter of persons. Our Heavenly Father showed us His heart, mind, power, and authority through the life of Jesus The Christ (His Word made human), who is the “expressed” image of Himself (Hebrews 1:3). In other words, our God “explained” Himself through Jesus Christ.

Understanding Our God’s Methods
Our Heavenly Father’s Living Word (Jesus) and written Word (Scripture) repeatedly tell all who chose to follow Him, that they will face tests and trials. Believers must embrace the Truth that whenever our God exposes a problem, He gives a solution to the problem, and promises a reward to those who overcome it.

James 1:2-5 (NLT) Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. If you need wisdom, ask our generous God and He will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.

We are not living this life alone, or in our own understanding. We have legal access to the wisdom of the ages. Our Heavenly Father is our ever-present, all-knowing, all-powerful, loving God, who orchestrates the life of the believer, working to cause all things (whether we perceive them to be good or not) to work together for our good (Romans 8:28-29). His intent is that we be blessed, as a result of our tests!

Testing is Necessary; Let Us Make the Most of It
We must believe the same Holy Spirit and power that raised Christ from the death lives in us. We must believe that our Heavenly Father’s Word works for Jesus and will work for us. We will be faced with opportunities to believe God above our own thoughts and feelings, above the suggestions of the enemy, and the opinions of others. The dream will be tested, but remember, if it is of God, it will not, it cannot die. It is impossible to curse what God has declared blessed!

Remember in the testing, that we “have need of patient endurance, to bear up under difficult circumstances without compromising, so that when we have carried out the will of God, we may receive and enjoy to the full what our God has promised (Hebrews 10:36, AMP).

We must continue to be faithful. We must refuse to give up; we must use our faith to pull down all opposition and contrariness to the Word of God! We must trust the same Holy Spirit to enable us to love the unlovable. We must trust the same Holy Spirit to raise up in us when we come face to face with evil.

Expect to be Blessed!
In testing, we must rebuke the devil, in accordance with our God’s character and Word; we must trust His Holy Presence to walk us around, over, under, and through every test, victoriousfully. Hallelujah!

We must learned from the “Author and Finisher of our faith, that beyond every cross and shame, there is joy (Hebrews 12:2). We have learned, beyond every passed test, there is a reward.

We must follow Jesus The Christ, our Example and Standard

Philippians 2:5-11 (NLT) 5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. 6 Though He was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to.  7 Instead, He gave up His divine privileges; He took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When He appeared in human form, 8 He humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. 9 Therefore, God elevated Him to the place of highest honor and gave Him the name above all other names, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

THERE IS BLESSING IN THE TESTING;  HONOR AND OBEY OUR GOD, THEN EXPECT YOUR BLESSING!

I prophesy to the faithful all over the world, “Your blessing is here!”

Keep your eyes and ears open for the manifestation process:
For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear (Mark 4:18).

THERE IS BLESSING IN THE TESTING; HONOR AND OBEY OUR GOD, THEN EXPECT YOUR BLESSING!

Honor The Only Qualified Sacrifice

Watchmen, this weekend has been set aside to remember and honor our God’s work in the Person of Jesus The Christ, His only Begotten Son, our Savior, Lord, Messiah, and coming King. We lift our hearts, voices, and lives to our God in gratitude, as we remember the price He paid for us. He gave His First-Born Son, knowing He is the First of multitudes to come. He is our all-wise, all-powerful God.

Jesus Christ is our God’s Resurrected Lamb, His Word/human, innocent of sin and the only suitable sacrifice, slain once for the sin of all humanity; the promises of our God raised Him, never to die again. By our God’s promise and our faith, our lives are redeemed from sin and death; our lives are hidden in the life and victory of Jesus The Christ. There is no additional penance necessary for the salvation of the human spirit; our God has given us His Word and His Holy Spirit authority and power to work out our soul salvation/transformation. He is our strategic God.

Let us celebrate Jesus The Christ who did no wrong, who suffered and died for our sin and iniquity, for our rebellion. He paid the price or His life and shed blood to save us from eternal separation from our God, in full. Our God has declared Him Lord of all; every knee must bow, and every tongue confess His Lordship. Let us join in together, singing His praise until we sound like the mighty Voice of our God.

Let us praise our God and thank Him for His wisdom and power revealed in Jesus The Christ, until revival breaks out in our nations. Let us praise our God and thank Him until miracles, signs, and wonders break out all over the world. Let us praise our God and thank Him until all God’s people are healed.

Let us honor our God and His Christ together. Let us fill the earth with praise for all He has done. Let us not grow weary in well-doing, with hearts filled with expectation to see His hand moving in the land of the living. May our God hear the voices of His people crying out all over the world,

“Father God, thank You for Jesus. Even so, let Him come. We trust You to get us ready. Do all that is in Your heart. In Jesus name, amen and amen. “

The Call to The Christ, The Call to our God’s Righteousness

His Word for our Learning
Watchmen all over the world, we know our God provides His Word (Scripture and Jesus), as conversations of His own instruction and exhortation, so that humanity may learn who He is, how to trust in His character, ways, Word, and ability, as well as who He made us to be:

Romans 15:4 (AMP) For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope and overflow with confidence in His promises.

His Word Reveals The Christ
In Scripture (the written Word of our God) the student who diligently seeks to know and have real relationship with Him, discover who Jesus truly is:

John 5:39 (AMP) You search and keep on searching and examining the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and yet it is those very Scriptures that testify about Me.

His Word Reveals Himself
In discovering who Jesus (the human, walking, talking Word of our God), the student who diligently seeks to know and have real relationship with our God discovers who our Sovereign Creator, our omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent Heavenly Father is:

Hebrews 1:1-3 (International Children’s Bible) 1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets. He spoke to them many times and in many different ways. 2 And now in these last days God has spoken to us through His Son. God has chosen His Son to own all things. And He made the world through the Son. 3 The Son reflects the Glory of God. He is an Exact Copy of God’s nature. He holds everything together with His powerful Word. The Son made people clean from their sins. Then He sat down at the right side of God, the Great One in heaven.

His Word Reveals His Plan for Humanity                                                                    Watchmen, we understand that our God loved humanity so much that He allowed His Only Begotten Son to suffer and die for our sin and rebellion, only to raise Him up, reward, and empower Him for His service. Studying the Scripture and watching Jesus The Christ (Hebrews 12:2) we discover who we truly are. We discover our purpose and our God’s mind and methodology. We are to exemplify and execute the righteousness of our God in the earth, using the Love, grace, promises, and every tool and weapon used by our Jesus:

1 John 4:16-17 (International Children’s Bible) 16 And so we know the love that God has for us, and we trust that love. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God lives in him. 17 If God’s love is made perfect in us, then we can be without fear on the day God judges us. We will be without fear, because in this world we are like Him.

Jesus The Christ, Our Righteousness Revealed 

1 Corinthians 1:30 (CEB) It is because of God that you are in Christ Jesus. HE became wisdom from God for us. This means that HE made us righteous and holy, and HE delivered us.

Watchmen, it is through Jesus The Christ that our God has made us right with Himself. It is through Jesus The Christ, that our God reestablished the wisdom, authority, power… He originally ascribed to humanity. It is through Jesus The Christ that our God paid the price of innocent human blood to rescue and redeem humanity from the clutches of satan’s wickedness. Our God’s working in Jesus The Christ is the reason, the kingdom of wickedness has no legal claim, nor recourse but to bow and surrender at the sounding of our God’s Word, sealed with the signet ring of Jesus The Christ’s name!

Our Righteous Inheritance Revealed

Isaiah 11:1-5 (AMP) 11 Then a Shoot (the Messiah) will spring from the stock of Jesse [David’s father], and a Branch from his roots will bear fruit. 2 And The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and strength, The Spirit of knowledge and of the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord, 3 And He will delight in the fear of the Lord, and He will not judge by what His eyes see, nor make decisions by what His ears hear; 4 But with righteousness and justice He will judge the poor, and decide with fairness for the downtrodden of the earth; and He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. 5 and righteousness will be the belt around His loins, and faithfulness the belt around His waist.

Beloved watchmen, it is our spiritual inheritance to access and wield all that our God used in the ministry of Jesus The Christ to enforce and manifest His will in the earth. Our lives are hidden safely in Him; we must by faith, allow Him to live, move, and have His being in and through our imperfect, forgiven, fully desirous to please Him, earthen vessels. It is to Him that every knee must bow, and every tongue must confess. It is to The Christ that satan relinquishes his hold on the minds, hearts, and lives of humanity. Let us relentlessly use heaven’s tactics, authority, and power against his camp, until we see our God’s harvesting of human souls from his clutches, until we see humanity’s manifested transition into our God’s kingdom of life and light!

Beloved watchmen, we must have faith, allowing our God and His Christ to increase in our lives. He equips us to live in this world, intelligently and with self-awareness. Through Him we are made righteous, and are simultaneously seated in heavenly places, ruling through Jesus The Christ. Lord, help us all to walk out this revelation in our lives, in Jesus name. AMEN!

The Call to Return to Our God’s Righteousness

Watchmen all over the world, let us stand together declaring, “Let there be light, globally.” Let us declare that the revelation of Jesus The Christ fill the earth. Let us call on the participation of the four winds of the earth to spread this Word globally, as we  agree with our God, opening the door for the fulfillment of His Word, His unwavering promise:

Hebrews 8:10-12 (AMP) 10 “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel After those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their minds (even upon their innermost thoughts and understanding), and engrave them upon their hearts (effecting their regeneration). and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 11 “And it will not be necessary for each one to teach his fellow citizen, or each one his brother, saying, ‘Know by experience, have knowledge of the Lord,’ For all will know Me by experience and have knowledge of Me, from the least to the greatest of them.

Watchmen, our God is calling for the conversion of our thinking, for the regeneration of His people; He is calling of the “transforming of the spiritual DNA, the character and nature” of His people. He is calling us back to His ancient path of Righteousness IN HIM. It is the force, the grace, the power of our God’s righteousness that vanquishes, that devours in consuming fire all evil. It is His force, grace, power of righteousness that cause evil to bow the knee in utter defeat, as it awaits instruction or judgment. Jesus The Christ is the Evidence, the Proof of our God’s restoration of His righteousness in the lives of His people. He is the reason we can remind the rulers and kings of satan’s kingdom of what our God has said:

Isaiah 54:17 (AMPC) “But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition is the heritage of the servants of the Lord (those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced); this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me; this is that which I impart to them as their justification,” says the Lord.

The Force of our God’s Righteousness

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV) Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.

Watchmen all over the world, do you hear the promise of our God? HE says HIS righteousness upholds (secures, supports, sustains, maintains…) us; therefore, we have no need to fear. The previous post shares the definition of righteousness:

The state or quality of being in alignment with divine or moral law; free from and of guilt or sin, morally right or justifiable (capable of being proven or shown to be just, right, legitimate, or reasonable), worthy, genuine, authentic, excellent, sound, suitable, credible, certified, validated… (Merriam Webster Dictionary and Thesaurus, 2017)

Our God is not just morally excellent in nature, HE IS THE VERY NATURE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. All truly right thinking, speaking, and doing flows through Him. The works and beings of evil can only appear to be of The Light, Truth, and Righteousness; however, when we take a closer look, we discover the end is delay, torment, disappointment, theft, murder, and destruction (2 Corinthians 11:14; John 10:10a). Our God knows the right and appropriate thing to do in every situation; He IS God, The Ultimate Authority over all knowledge, understanding, wisdom, and power. We have inherited all the nature of our God through Jesus The Christ.

Watchmen, why do you think satan and his cohorts fight so hard against humanity receiving the revelation of who our God created us to be, and that He has fully authorized us to wield all His is and has done in and through Jesus The Christ against him and his works. This is the reason for his meticulously planted erroneous doctrine, such as “Once saved always saved; you can live like hell and still go to heaven!” OR “Believing God exists and loves us is enough, we have no other obligation, but to believe.” Both are wrong and being fully exposed as you read this post.

Our God is raising up His Own (believers who worship in spirit and truth) up out of every demonic quagmire. He is washing and filling us with His Word and Love. He is teaching us to use His authority properly. He is acquainting and anointing us with His Holy Spirit of wisdom and power. He is appointing us to our assignments of furthering His covenant and kingdom in the earth.

Our Most-High God is causing His offspring to manifest in the earth, even now! All evil must bow to His resurrected Christ-like offspring who walk upright before Him in faith! This He revealed in and through the resurrected, ascended, seated Jesus The Christ, our Savior, Lord, Messiah, and coming King!

Jesus The Christ is the Evidence, the Proof of the restoration of our God’s righteousness, authority, and power revealed! He is our God’s power revealed; we must only believe:

Romans 1:16-17 (NLT) 16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. 17 This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”

Come to Jesus The Christ, Our God’s Righteousness
Let us take the kingdoms of this world, for our God and His Christ.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!

The Evidence, The Proof: Jesus The Christ

Romans 1:16-17 (AMP) 16 I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation from His wrath and punishment to everyone who believes in Christ as Savior, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed, both springing from faith and leading to faith disclosed in a way that awakens more faith. As it is written and forever remains written, “The just and upright shall live by faith.”

As people all over the world prepare to stand against what I believe is an epidemic from hell, but released by the hands of humans, (influenza), may we, as our God’s watchmen, stand our post and declare “No weapon formed against us shall be able to prosper, in Jesus The Christ name!” Let us stand cursing this foul conquered thing at the root. Let us command it to return to its senders with the demand to repent or suffer the fate you wished upon others, in Jesus name!

Watchmen all over the world, we must never allow ourselves to doubt heaven’s evidence, heaven’s proof of the Person of our God, as revealed in Jesus The Christ. Let us not waver in trusting in the Truth of His Story, the Good News of The Gospel, which reveals Him as our God’s Chosen One, our Savior, Lord, Messiah, and coming King. In the Gospel of our Christ, the character, heart, nature, will, authority, and power of our God is revealed; the complete redemption, resurrection, and restoration of humanity and our God-given authority is walked out, restored, and witnessed by multitudes. We must have and maintain faith in our God and His Christ. He is the Evidence and the Proof.

The Purpose of The Christ

Christ is not Jesus’s last name; it has been roughly translated, The Anointed One and His anointing. It may be better understood as the definition of God’s great grace (Loving help to be and do the impossible) upon His life:

Luke 4:18-19 (AMP) 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (the Messiah), because He has anointed Me to preach the good news (Gospel) to the poor. He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), 19 to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord, the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly.”

Jesus The Christ is the Evidence, the Proof of our God’s willingness and ability to supply His Loving Help, wisdom, authority, strategy, methodology, power… in the lives of those who believe. Jesus The Christ is our God’s Word made human. He is The One designed and anointed by our God (saturated with His spiritual oil, fuel, firepower); He encapsulates all our Heavenly Father is (including His love, life, knowledge, wisdom, mercy, grace, …). He is The One given full authority and power to wield all that our God is and has, according to His will and pleasure (Colossians 2:9). He is The One sent to dominate the human spirit, soul, and body, rendering Himself to full obedience to our Heavenly Father.

Jesus The Christ is the Evidence, the Proof of the Sovereign working of our Heavenly Father in the life of the believer, according to our faith, His Word, by His Holy Spirit. Jesus The Christ is The One sent to redeem humanity by shedding His blood at Calvary. He is The One equipped and empowered to expose the deceptive working of satan and his wicked kingdom. He is The One sent to confront, overcome, conquer, and fully defeat evil, it’s weapons and tools of sin, death, the grave, and hell. It is as He declared on Calvary’s cross, “IT IS FINISHED!”

We are fully restored IN HIM! Jesus The Christ is the Evidence, the Proof that humanity has already won the faith fight.  He is the Walking, Talking Revelation of the Truth that the satan and his kingdom are fully defeated, by our Heavenly Father, through His strategic work IN HIM.

The Evidence, the Proof of our God’s Heart Towards Humanity!

We are declared free of the guilt of sin, acceptable to God and blessed with eternal life because of the undeserved gift of redemption, through the shed blood of Jesus The Christ (Romans 3:24).

We are declared free from condemnation and satan’s laws of sin and death, because the Holy Spirit of Life and His law of Life is made available to us, because of and through Jesus The Christ (Romans 8:1-2).

We are secure in the unfailing love of our God, because of and through Jesus The Christ (Romans 8:38-39).

We have access to our God’s wisdom, righteousness, sanctifying power, and redemption, (through no good of our own), because of and through Jesus The Christ (1 Corinthians 1:29-30).

We have authorization to wield the authority and power of our God, against flesh and all evil, through the name of Jesus, because of His obedience to the will, mind, and purposes of our Heavenly Father (Matthew 28:18-20).

We have knowledge and access into The Way, The Truth, and The Life of our God, because of Jesus The Christ (John 14:6).

We know no matter what we pass through in life, greater is coming, because of the revelation given to us by our Heavenly Father,  through His work in the birth, life, ministry, sacrifice, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and seating of Jesus The Christ (Romans 8:18).

We embrace who we are, as the manifested sons of the Most-High God, because of the revelation of Jesus The Christ and the mind of our God (1 John 4:16-17; Romans 8:28-29).

As Jesus Is in Heaven, So are We in the World

Ephesians 2:5-7 (NLT) 5 That even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 6 For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. 7 So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of His grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all He has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.

Jesus The Christ is seated as our God’s Right Hand human, with authority and power; He is appointed and anointed Lord of all.  This is the spiritual and legal inheritance of all who believe in our Heavenly Father and His Christ. He Who has no respect of person wants us to know that all Jesus is, all Jesus has is ours, through His grace and kindness, according to our faith, by His Word and Holy Spirit.

Jesus The Christ is the Evidence, the Proof of our God, His Anointing, His Love, His authority, His power, His heart, and everything good… (Hebrews 1:3).

Watchmen all over the world, let us make full use of the knowledge of our God, His Christ, and all that it means to humanity. Let us stand together in faith, with our God’s Word and Holy Spirit, decreeing and declaring the Word and will of our God, until the kingdoms of this world crumble under the weight of the Presence of our God. Let us be faithful to stand with the Holy Spirit and the Bride calling, “Even so, come Lord Jesus!”

Let us do all things by faith in our God and His Christ; let us do all things in His heart, mind, and power. Let us watch our God honor His Word (written and made human). Let us watch Him fulfill all. Let us do all, in Jesus The Christ’s name!

JESUS THE CHRIST IS THE EVIDENCE, THE PROOF THAT OUR GOD IS ALL THAT HE SAYS HE IS, AND THAT HE IS WILLING AND ABLE TO DO ALL HE SAYS!

HALLELUJAH!

 

Trust our God on Purpose

Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMPC) 5 Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. 6 In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.

Watchmen all over the world, as we fight the good fight of faith for our own and for others, let us never forget that we serve the Only True and Living God, Who has already fully and completely won all wars and discrepancies.  

Let us refuse to suffer the same fate of Adam (male and female man; Genesis 5).  Let us be aware of the deception of the enemy of our souls, who tries in so many, subtle and brazen ways to cause us to distrust or be offended in our God.  

Let us consider the counsel of our God: 

Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence (faith), for it has a glorious and great reward. 36 For you have need of patient endurance to bear up under difficult circumstances without compromising, so that when you have carried out the will of God, you may receive and enjoy to the full what is promised (Hebrews 10:35-37; AMP).

Our God, His Word and Deeds ARE Infallible

Numbers 23:19  (NLV) 19 God is not a man, that He should lie. He is not a son of man, that He should be sorry for what He has said. Has He said, and will He not do it? Has He spoken, and will He not keep His Word?

Acts 1:1-4 (KJV) 1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2 Until the day in which He was taken up, after that He through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom He had chosen: 3 To whom also He shewed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

Merriam Webster Dictionary Online (2018) defines infallible as: incapable of error, not liable to mislead, deceive, or disappoint; perfect in teaching faith and morality.  Our God is the Only True and Righteous Judge, morally excellent in character, who does not err.  All He has spoken and will speak may be taken to the banking storehouses of heaven; we receive exactly what is promised when we present His promise, with His heart, and His faith.  He has already provided all these things by His grace (Loving help to be and do the impossible); He proved this to be true in the Gospel (Good New) of Jesus The Christ. WE CAN AND SHOULD TRUST OUR GOD, ON PURPOSE!

Our God, His Word, and His deeds are infallible. Let us accept all the Scripture and Jesus say about His character, nature, Word, authority and power.  Let us inquire of Him and ask for His guidance; He promises to tell us all we need, and walk us through every test and storm, until His best manifests (James 1:5; Psalm 23).   Let us ask for His Loving help (His grace) with unwavering hearts full of expectation for the answer, the instruction, the solution, the healing, the deliverance, the provision… every good and perfect thing we need (James 1:6-7).   

Our Sovereign Heavenly Father God loves humanity on purpose (John 3:16):

James 1:16-18 (AMP) 16 Do not be misled, my beloved brothers and sisters. 17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of lights (the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens), in whom there is no variation [no rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning (for He is perfect and never changes). 18 It was of His own will that He gave us birth as His children, by the word of Truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits of His creatures (a prime example of what He created to be set apart to Himself—sanctified, made holy for His divine purposes).

 Watchmen all over the world,  our God loves us on purpose.  Let us stand strong in Him and this fight of faith, armed with the knowledge of our unchanging God, His character, nature, Love, authority and power.  Let us do so, knowing He keeps His promises, knowing His Word cannot return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11), knowing the heavenly host and His Consuming Fire have our backs (Psalm 91:10-12). 

Watchmen all over the world; let us trust our God on purpose!

We are Enforcing The Christ’s Victory!

Matthew 28:18-20 (AMP) 18 Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority (all power of absolute rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations (help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words), baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always (remaining with you perpetually, regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion), even to the end of the age.”

Jesus The Christ, before ascending to the right-hand position of our God, charges His disciples (every person who would believe and follow His example).  He states plainly He is our God’s Chosen One, the One Whom our Heavenly Father anointed and appointed to wield the fulness of His glory, authority, and power (Colossians 2:9).  He makes plain His God-given privilege of sharing this authority and power with believers, so that the will of our Heavenly Father shall be done.  Lastly, He lets us know He will be with us in and through all things and times, period.  In summary, Jesus deputizes all believers with the right to wield the power of God and access all that He is; He authorizes us to move in His anointing, for the purpose of enforcing the will of our God on the kingdom of darkness and throughout creation. 

FOLLOW OUR LEAD ENFORCER

Hebrews 12:2 (TPT) We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection. His example is this: Because His heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be His, He endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!

Watchmen all over the world, Jesus The Christ, the walking, talking Word of God, is the Source of our faith.  He authored our God’s Person, mind, authority, and power in the flesh, as His Living Tutorial.  He expressed our God for our learning, that we may be equipped to endure, that we be encouraged, have hope and confidence in our Heavenly Father’s heart, authority and power.  He walked out and completed the faith life of a son of God, leaving us a clear example of the Way, Truth, and Life originally intended for us, by our God (John 14:6).

Soldiers of the Cross all over the world, let us make full use of all that our God has given us, through and in Jesus The Christ.  What a joy it is to watch The Christ moving among the people in the Scripture, expressing the heart, mind, authority and power of our God! His Words in Matthew 28:18-20 clearly reveal our God’s expectation that we do the same.  In fact, our God expects us to think like Jesus The Christ, and to do the works that He did (through faith, in the authority vested in Jesus (using His name), backed by heaven’s Consuming Fire power!:

Philippians 2:5 (NCV) In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.

Acts 10:38 (TPT) Jesus of Nazareth was anointed by God with the Holy Spirit and with great power. He did wonderful things for others and divinely healed all who were under the tyranny of the devil, for God anointed Him.

No matter what we encounter, we must remember we are backed by a Loving. Sovereign Heavenly Father, who lives in us by His Holy Spirit and Word.  We must remember that He works all things together (good and not so good) FOR OUR GOOD, as we man our posts on the wall of the spirit; we must remember that His expectation and purpose is His completion of our transformation and conformity (of our thinking, speaking, and acting) into image of Jesus the Christ (Romans 8:28-29). 

  THE CHRIST’S EXPECTATION

Watchmen, let us consider what our God is saying when He authored the following:

John 14:11-13 (KJV) 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me: or else believe Me for the very works’ sake.  12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Jesus The Christ’s expectation is clear, that we press into faith in our God, who He says He is, what He had done in Him, and what He will yet manifest through us, according to His will (IT IS WRITTEN)!  Think about it; faith is one thing The Christ will surely look for when He returns (Luke 18:8b)! 

 CREATION’S EXPECTION; THE BELIEVER’S EXPECTATION

Romans 8:19-23 (CJB) 19 The creation waits eagerly for the sons of God to be revealed; 20 for the creation was made subject to frustration — not willingly, but because of the one who subjected it. But it was given a reliable hope 21 that it too would be set free from its bondage to decay and would enjoy the freedom accompanying the glory that God’s children will have. 22 We know that until now, the whole creation has been groaning as with the pains of childbirth; 23 and not only it, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we continue waiting eagerly to be made sons — that is, to have our whole bodies redeemed and set free.

Creation’s expectation is that the born-again sons of the Most-High God take their places in Jesus The Christ and call all things back into order.  Creation is groaning, waiting for us to enforce Christ’s victory and dominion over satan.  Creation waits for us to use the gifts and tools of heaven to strip the kingdom of darkness of all its pseudo power (stolen through deception), by thinking, speaking, and acting in the Light of the Holy Spirit within.  We are flames of The Consuming Fire (our Heavenly Father God); He has charged the wind to work with us in decreeing, declaring, demanding, and commanding that His will be done in the earth and the lives of humanity (Psalm 104:4).

Believers who purpose in our hearts to keep our God as our First Love, discover that the deep in us calls to the deep in our God, yearning to be with Him.  We discover and understand that while we function in this world (by our God’s power, Love, and soundness of mind), we are not native nor subject of the spirit of this world; our home in heavenly places, in Jesus The Christ (Acts 17:28; 2 Timothy 1:7; John 8:23).  We have learned to trust our God, and while we walk in our God’s diligence and wisdom among humanity, we are unafraid to declare, “Even so, come Lord Jesus!”

AS HE IS, SO ARE WE!

1 John 4:16-18 (CJB) 16 Also we have come to know and trust the love that God has for us. God is love; and those who remain in this love remain united with God, and God remains united with them. 17 Here is how love has been brought to maturity with us: as the Messiah is, so are we in the world. This gives us confidence for the Day of Judgment. 18 There is no fear in love. On the contrary, love that has achieved its goal gets rid of fear, because fear has to do with punishment; the person who keeps fearing has not been brought to maturity in regard to love.

Beloved watchmen, we understand our God desires us to walk in His character with moral excellence (holiness). We must remember that He understands our plight, that we are no match for satan without Him, that we are NEVER without Him and His Love.  Our fully committed hearts are protected by His Person, Love, authority and power, as we are redeemed from the hand of evil by the shed blood of Jesus The Christ. 

When we stumble, we must remember our God’s Love, purpose, authority, and power.  We must repent; get up; plead the blood’s protection and redemption, and wield the matchless Sword of our God’s Truth and Light, destroying demonic kingdoms as we go.  We must remain faithful, knowing we are uprooting, tearing down, destroying and demolishing the kingdoms of darkness, as we build and plant the kingdom of our God in the hearts and lives of humanity.  Remember, the root of the fig tree was dead long before the full manifestation of its demise; we have already fully conquered in Jesus The Christ:

Mark 11:11-14; 20-24 (AMP) 11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went to the temple enclosure; and after looking around at everything, He left for Bethany with the twelve disciples, because it was already late in the day.  12 On the next day, when they had left Bethany, He was hungry. 13 Seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if He would find anything on it. But He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 He said to it, “No one will ever eat fruit from you again!” And His disciples were listening to what He said.

20 In the morning, as they were passing by, the disciples saw that the fig tree had withered away from the roots up. 21 And remembering, Peter said to Him, “Rabbi (Master), look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered!” 22 Jesus replied, “Have faith in God constantly. 23 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart (in God’s unlimited power), but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him, in accordance with God’s will. 24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer (in accordance with God’s will), believe with confident trust that you have received them, and they will be given to you.

 TAKE AUTHORITY; ENFORCE THE WILL OF OUR GOD!

Watchmen, we are called and appointed to comprehend the mind, will, purposes, times and seasons of God.  Our natural and spiritual lives are hidden in Jesus The Christ, as He anoints us to decree and declare His will be done in the uttermost parts of the world and the innermost parts of human lives.  We are deputized to command and demand the will of our God be done in the heavens, the earth, the underworld, and the depths of the sea.  

Soldiers of the cross, our God has authorized us (in Christ) to arrest, bind, cast the enemy and his cohorts into utter darkness to await His instruction or judgment, according to His will.   Our God has authorized us to destroy the works of darkness throughout creation.  He has appointed that we take back ground (spiritual and natural), knowing the power and life in the shed blood of Jesus speaks on our behalf.  Let us be about our Father’s business (as is our Christ); let us man our posts unafraid, knowing that Our God, His Christ, His Word, His Holy Spirit, and His heavenly host back us, at the name of Jesus, spoken in faith!  Hallelujah!

WATCHMEN DO NOT BE DECEIVED NOR AFRAID! 
The kingdoms of the world are falling; 

The strongholds of satan are crumbling!

We are enforcing our God’s will!

We are doing our part to manifest the Christ’s victory!

Stay on the wall; Man your posts. It will manifest!

MOST BELOVED FATHER GOD,

Thank You for Your grace, Your Loving help to be and do the impossible.  You will find faith in Your watchmen when You return.  We are full of faith and we are manifesting Your will; we are manifesting The Christ’s victory in the earth, and in the lives of humanity,  by the authority and power of Your Person, Your Word, and Your Holy Spirit.

IT IS FINISHED!  EVEN SO, COME LORD JESUS!

This we pray in Jesus name, and it is so; amen!
