Life Principals Worth Considering…

A couple years ago, I read two books that were very impactful upon me. One was ‘The Slight Edge‘ by Jeff Olson, and the second was ‘The Compound Effect‘ by Darren Hardy. These books really helped me transition from the business world to the missionary calling I have now embraced.

Seven Life Principals:

In Reading Jeff Olson’s ‘The Slight Edge’, he gives 7 principals in life that have caused him, and many others to be successful in life, business, and sports.

These are:
show up1
1. Show Up – That is, whatever particular endeavor you are called to, be there. If school or academia, attend all the lectures, complete all the reading, lab, research, and homework assignments, and schedule 2 hours/day of study time. If sports, hit every work out, and then work on disciplined drills, an extra 20 mins to half and hour/day. If business, keep a consistent work schedule. Show up!

2. Be consistent:
consistent
In both ‘The Slight Edge’ and ‘The Compound Effect’ it is slight, disciplined changes, performed daily, every day, that bring huge results. Read 10 pages of inspirational books/day, exercise 15-20 mins every day, cut 150 junk calories out of your diet every day, substitute one hour of listening to the news or entertainment with the same hour listening to educational, motivational, instructional or inspirational material.

3. Keep a good attitude: So much can, and has been said about our attitude, and guarding our hearts. As Christians, we must constantly walk in love, forgiveness, and keep the garden of our heart, our inner life free from the weeds of offense, unforgiveness, bitterness, cynicism,lies, and deliberately remaining loving, joyful, enthusiastic, exuding the power of heaven over the circumstances of this fallen, broken, and often hurting world. Attitude determines altitude. Who would you rather spend time with? Someone always depressed and down, or someone on fire, bubbling over with life, joy, and love? Think about it.

4.Plan for the long haul:
long haul
In both books, it was these slight disciplines, performed consistently, over 18 months, that brought incredible results. Seeds are powerful things, and though they may not look like much, the multiplied effect of small consistent actions, creates an unstoppable force for success, in whatever endeavor or vocation you are called to in life, as long as it is legal, moral, and in line with God’s specific plan for your life. Remember that success has come from the daily schedule, therefore, as you experience your day in the spotlight, enjoying the fruit of the process, remember to maintain the process, or you will begin to lose, what you have gained. Stay the course!

5. Have faith and a burning desire:
faith fantastic
Faith is trust. Trust that the process you have implemented will be supported by God and His Word, and that even when nothing appears to be happening in your daily circumstances, that powerful invisible forces are being marshaled on your behalf. Stay passionate for your purpose and goals, focused, and your day will come.

6. Be willing to pay the price:
pay the price
Hard times will come. Distractions, persecutions, heartbreaks, betrayals, disappointments, and the challenges of life come to all of our lives. Yet, the decisions we make, daily, in the long dark night of our soul, will determine the outcome of our particular trial. You cannot be defeated if you will not quit. This is not just good preaching, but a fact of life. Keep doing the small, disciplined things daily you know to do, and you will succeed, always.

7. Practice Integrity:
wisdom integrity
I like the way he says that: ‘practice’ integrity. I think of this the way a doctor ‘practices’ medicine. He or she spend many, many years learning the human body and how to cure it, yet they recognize after all of their training and experience, they are still practicing the field of medicine. They have not arrived yet. So, I have learned, it is with integrity. Certain things will forever be right or wrong, there is absolute moral truth revealed in the Word of God, but as our responsibility levels in life grow, more is required of us to maintain integrity. Think about our growth. A two year old is taught ‘Don’t hit!’. An eight year old is taught ‘Don’t hit your brother!’ A teen is taught: ‘Only hit in self defense!’, a young husband and father is taught: ‘Don’t hit, unless in defense of your family.’, a soldier or police officer is taught: ‘Don’t hit unless an enemy or criminal throws the first punch, or in the case of combat, in defense of freedom, ‘Don’t fire unless fired upon.”. From ‘Don’t hit!’ in the life of a toddler, to the right and responsibility to use deadly force in a combat or wartime situation, requires growth in the area of integrity.

Yet, fleeing sexual immorality, faithfulness to our spouses, refusing to lie, cheat, or steal, refusal to compromise our faith, are inviolate principals.

We fight daily, to keep our spoken word, our bond, to pay our bills on time, to treat others honorably the way we would want to be treated, no matter what happens.

As I discussed this one day, with my business partner of seven years, we came to the following conclusion, that our definition of integrity is simply: ‘A firm decision to do right, no matter what happens’

As we have dealt with contracts, work place accidents, hiring and firing employees, and some very difficult clients, and contracts that went to hell in a hand-basket, we have lived this out
This is the practice of integrity.

His principals are good, but as I thought I would make up a list of seven daily disciplines for myself. I’m working on them, and have five complete, still seeking God for the other two. How about you, what are some daily disciplines you have developed, or might implement, to get where God want YOU to succeed in life?

For the record, here are my five so far: 1.Prayer and morning devotions 2. Reading through the Bible each Year 3. Regular Exercise 4. Daily commitment to love my wife and family time. 5. On-going academic and spiritual growth

I am not sure what 6 and 7 will be, but probably 6 might be to manage and increase my finances, so that I can give more to the ministries I support. 7. Deliberately choose a group of people to mentor and encourage in the things of God.

What are your daily disciplines?

War! We must win this Battle!

WAR! It is time for Kings to go to battle!

warfare
2 Sam 11:1 ¶ And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.

We all know the rest of the story. David did not go to battle, and then there was a lady named Bathsheba showering upon her roof-top…what a mess that caused! Had he been on the battle-field with his men, it all would have been avoided.

How easy it is to become Complacent! Contained! Comfortable in Zion! How easy to become the Laodiceans of our day!

Rev 3:14 ¶ And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

There are churches that become a ‘fire’ churches for many ministries internationally, as we press towards the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus, NO COMPROMISE!

obey no compromise
I hear the Spirit of God saying to me again today, RISE UP AND FIGHT!

Seems I find myself over the years, exhorting God’s church to stay engaged in the battle of eternity, here are a few articles that will stir you up:

https://chrisaomministries.com/2016/05/12/called-to-intercession/
https://chrisaomministries.com/2016/05/03/8037/

https://chrisaomministries.com/2014/12/06/four-stages-of-manhood-manhood-part-two/

So easy to become comfortable, but look what happened to David. His sin was not initially with Bathsheba and the resulting murder of her husband, but in not heeding the Spirit of God, to go to the battle field, when it was time to fight!
fight
Today, I have arisen again to the challenge of the gospel, in violent faith, passion, and broken hearted intercession. Can I rest on my previous triumphs and victories? Not while the battle still rages!

Like David facing Goliath, I proclaim: “Is there not a cause?’

For those, like me who claim to name the name of Jesus in the United States of America, here are a few causes that better rise up within you, to cause you to shake off the shackles of sin, the lethargy of the entertainment and the world that would lull us to sleep and spiritual complacency:

1. The inroads of Islam into America: In 1991, when intercessors at Rhema, prayed in violent faith against Islam, as US troops entered Iraq, in the first Desert Storm, prophetic people saw demonic principalities displaced, from the Middle East, and sent into the North Atlantic, that caused huge natural, deadly storms there. In fact, there was a movie about it called: ‘The Perfect Storm’. In later years, in a vision, an intercessor saw these spirits, and the spirits displaced from communism when the Berlin wall fell, attempt to counterattack, by entering North America, to infiltrate the United States and Canada, and bring corruption from within. Obviously, these spirits are now working in the United States, with the clear socialistic agenda of the present administration, and the clear infiltration of Islam into the White House, with actual Islamic prayer meetings held there! These demons can only be removed through united, anointed, consecrated prayer. No amount of politcal lobbying nor Media screaming will do this. The responsibility for this lies solely at the churches door, for spiritual authority belongs to us, and us alone.
2. Abortion: In this account, we read of one righteous king, Jehoshaphat, that joined himself with a wicked king Ahab, and another pagan king of Edom, to go to battle against the Moabites.

Ahab, sought a prophet of God for direction, and we hear God’s opinion of their military strategy:2 Kings 3:14 And Elisha said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee, nor see thee.

Before they even got to the battle field they almost died of thirst, yet God, because of Jehoshaphat, had them dig ditches, and gave them water, and then told them:

2 Kings 3:19 And ye shall smite every fenced city, and every choice city, and shall fell every good tree, and stop all wells of water, and mar every good piece of land with stones.

So we see the will of God. Complete victory!

Yet, this did not happen. They routed the Moabites, until they got to the main city of the Moabite king.
2 Kings 3: 27 Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to their own land.

There is power in sacrifice. Satan knows this.

https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2015/08/05/gods-opinion-of-abortion/

When you study out pagan religions, part of the worship of Baal and Astoreth and Molech in the Old Testament involved human sacrifice. Demon worshippers, literally offered their children upon alters of demonic sacrifice, a practice God expressly forbid.
abortion sacrifice

Leviticus 18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

Jesus holds the keys to death and hell. Every life in the earth is given by God, by divine decree. When blood is shed unrighteously, it cries out to the throne of God.

Gal 4:9 ¶ And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.

Rev 6:9 ¶ And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

When a person dies. His spirit appears before the throne of God. God sees, and He judges.

Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

So, Satan understands the power of unjust blood shed, and seeks to destroy nations who shed it, to provoke God to wrath. The thief comes to kill…

2 Kings 3:

Gives us an account that I believe has powerful application today. We see a divided kingdom, Israel ruled by a wicked king named Jehoram. Judah ruled by a godly king named Jehoshaphat. Jehoram had been raised by an evil father Ahab. Ahab.had ruled over the Samaritians and taxed them heavily. When he died, they rebelled, and Jehoram found himself without God, at war. So he did what many still do today, He tried to find someone to fight with him.

So he killed his son, a shadow and type of how God offered up His son as a sacrifice, and the blood of that sacrifice so empowered the demon principality that the Moabites served that the army was empowered to drive back the compromised army of God.

We see again and again in the Scripture that when the people of God walked with God, in practical righteousness, and enemies rose up, God gave a battle plan, and the nation was undefeated.

Notice that it was the disobedience and compromise of Jehoram that brought this defeat, he was not walking with God, and walked in great moral compromise.

This is what is actually happening in North America right now. As each child is ripped out of its mothers womb and murdered, it’s blood becomes a literal sacrifice to satan. Though doctors, nurses, and perhaps the broken deceived mothers who perform this act may not fully understand exactly what is occurring in this ‘medical procedure’, high level witches, warlocks, and Illuminati lords know exactly what is being done, which is why abortion is kept in place by governmental decrees of the highest order in this land.

god of this world

Why? 2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Satan knows full well the resurrection power of our Lord Jesus Christ, and fears it. He must generate demonic power in the earth, through deception, for this is how he rules.

This is how certain political leaders are presently ruling. Satan has given them a demonic shield of deception and lies, that is fueled through abortion. The blood sacrifice of our unborn children is feeding his demonic empire, and we, the church are too lethargic and complacent to sound the alarm, and to rise up in violent faith to stop it. I remember how a friend of mine performed a 100 day juice fast, seeking the face of God for direction on how to prevent the destruction of the United States, and to see her turn back to Jesus. After 100 days the Lord spoke to him simply:

‘The biggest problem in America, is that my church has believed a lie, that they are unable to change the direction this nation is headed. Yet, I have given her authority, and long for her to rise up in prayer and exercise it!”

Remember? The Egyptians chased Moses at the Red Sea, God parted the waters, and then God caused the water to drown the Egyptian army.

Exodus 17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

You know he story. Moses lifted his rod, and the armies of heaven marched against the legions of hell in the realm of the spirit, and Israel prevailed in battle. When Moses got tired, and let the rod of God fall, the devils empowering the Amalekites surged, and the heavenly host withdrew, and the armies of Israel struggled. With Aaron and Hur’s undergirding, Moses was able to keep the rod of God upheld, and Israel won the victory over her enemies.

I can give many stories. When Joshua marched against Jericho under God’s authority and commands, the walls fell, and Israel prevailed. When Achan sinned, and stole the cursed things, his sin literally punched a hole in the dome of God’s supernatural protection over Israel. Israel went to battle against Ai, and were defeated. Soldiers died. Joshua prayed. God did not say, “Achan sinned” rather He said “Israel has sinned”. Achan’s disobedience in wartime opened the door for demonic penetration of the spiritual covering over the nation of Israel, and Israel was defeated in battle. Achan was discovered and capital punishment was executed. Israel was undefeated in it’s next military exploits.

2 Sam 5:
22 And the Philistines came up yet again, and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
23 And when David enquired of the LORD, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.
24 And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the LORD go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.

What happened here in battle? David sought God for a battle plan. God gave him one, that involved the host of heaven. David was to wait until the angels of God marched against the demons that the Philistines served, then go to battle. He did, God did, and again Israel was victorious.

2 Kings 6:15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots . And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

Same thing. One man with God, in touch with heaven, operating under the authority of heaven allowed the armies of God to prevail against the host of hell, and the people of God to be delivered.
majority

After we repent of our personal sins, and again begin to seek God, there are specific battle plans to be revealed from heaven that will cause the church and the gospel to be victorious in this generation.

If we refuse this warning, there will be much blood shed on US soil. What does it take to get our attention?!?

Look at the work of Jihadists and secret societies in the past couple of years!

9/11 World Trade Center destruction, clearly demonically inspired and orchestrated:

demons 9-11

http://securitydata.newamerica.net/extremists/deadly-attacks.html

Notice here that evil is evil, and Islamic jihadists are not the only satanically inspired killers in America. We are fighting a spiritual battle in prayer, against demons whose nature is to kill, steal and destroy..John 10:10
In Rwanda, in Kigali, at the genocide memorial, there is a museum, that honors those slaughtered in genocide, and then looks at the contributing factors that have led to many other historic genocides in Cambodia, under Stalin in Russia, under Hitler in the Holocaust, the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia, and there are several factors that occur in every genocide.
Chris Karen Walsh's photo.

In every case, despite warnings of a militant army potential of killing all opposing factions, in each case, the general population, despite repeated warnings, got up, went to work each day, and said, ‘It will settle down.” Despite increased evidence of what the killers would do, the general population remained complacent, until it was much too late to stop the armed forces sweeping over their land, killing millions. In each case, complacency was the number one cause of genocide.

https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2013/12/01/prayer-for-secret-societies/

There were several other factors to be mentioned here such as the disarmament of the civilian population, and suppression of free speech by taking control of the Media, both of which are guaranteed by the US Constitution under the 1st and second amendments, and are under attack.

David goliath

It is a time for kings to go to war!

We must either win this battle, in prayer, now, dispelling the demons that love to kill, of they will do what demons do, and slaughter and enslave the United States of America, all because of a comfortable, complacent, compromised, church.

prayer war

Know this Christian. You either rise up in prayer now, and separate yourself unto Jesus, and begin to seek Him first again, or you will become fodder for the cannons of genocide, it will occur on US soil.

It is time for WAR!

Let’s pray:

‘Father, I command all false comfort, compromise, complacency and containment off of my life. Holy Spirit, ignite me again, with fresh passion, fire, purpose, and revelation of my responsibility here in this life, in this, my generation. Light a flame in my soul, that burns across this nation, open my eyes to your strategies to dispel these demons empowering Islam and communism, racism, hate and destruction here in the United States, and stop abortion, now, in the name and authority of Jesus, Amen!’

Normally, I do not add our offering link to these articles, for I do not do this, for ‘ a donation’, yet this morning, Holy Spirit specifically requested I insert it, with a request you consider praying for us daily, and supporting us financially. A laborer is worthy of his hire, and I have now written over 1300 of these articles. We could sure use your help!

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

teamwork
1 Corinthians 12:27

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

Teams make you better than you are, multiply your value, enable you to do what you do best, allow you to help others do their best, give you more time, provide you with companionship, help you fulfill the desires of your heart and compound your vision and effort. John C. Maxwell

Jesus spent His most precious time, with 12 leaders in training.

They changed the world. Teamwork makes it all happen.

dog race

Every year in Alaska, a 1000-mile dogsled race, a run for prize money and prestige, commemorates an original “race” run to save lives. Back in January of 1926, six-year-old Richard Stanley showed symptoms of diphtheria, signaling the possibility of an outbreak in the small town of Nome. When the boy passed away a day later, Dr. Curtis Welch began immunizing children and adults with an experimental but effective anti-dipheheria serum. But it wasn’t long before Dr. Welch’s supply ran out, and the nearest serum was in Nenana, Alaska–1000 miles of frozen wilderness away. Amazingly, a group of trappers and prospectors volunteered to cover the distance with their dog teams! Operating in relays from trading post to trapping station and beyond, one sled started out from Nome while another, carrying the serum, started from Nenana. Oblivious to frostbite, fatigue, and exhaustion, the teamsters mushed relentlessly until, after 144 hours in minus 50-degree winds, the serum was delivered to Nome. As a result, only one other life was lost to the potential epidemic. Their sacrifice had given an entire town the gift of life.

Legendary Exploits!

extreme faith

Legend – a story about mythical or supernatural beings or events.
1. legendary – so celebrated as to having taken on the nature of a legend; “the legendary exploits of the arctic trailblazers”
2. legendary – celebrated in fable or legend; “the fabled Paul Bunyan and his blue ox”; “legendary exploits of Jesse James”

I Really believe we can live legendary lives for Jesus in this generation!

Da 11:32 but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

What kind of Holy Ghost exploits are you plotting today?

sun stand still

Let’s Pray:

“Father, give me Holy Spirit inspired initiatives, and guts, moxy, courage, and faith to carry them out today! In Your Name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen!’

Man Up!

Today is Mother’s Day, and yet I found this old exhortation I wrote to men some time back. Best thing we can do for the mothers of the world is:

Man up!

10 ¶ And Barak called Zebulun and Naphtali to Kedesh; and he went up with ten thousand men at his feet: and Deborah went up with him.

The verse says it all. Manhood is required in life and leadership. Heard a minister say the requirements of ministry in this day were: Miracles, Money, and Moxy!

Believing we all rise up in Jesus, in manhood and moxy today, to be the warriors, fathers, husbands, and leaders this hour demands….Selah!

Let’s Pray:

Father, give me courage to be brave against the forces of moral compromise in this mixed up world today, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.

Love My Enemies???

Love my enemies?

Mt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Lu 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Chris Karen Walsh's photo.

Two of the hardest verses in the Bible! Heard a business man this morning at men’s prayer ask for prayer for his enemies. I remember a couple of years ago, during an intensely competitive contract negotiation, that I found myself speaking evil of my competitors, trying to get that edge in the bidding process, to be awarded a very lucrative contract.
Heard another businessman, say, ‘It’s a dog eat dog, world, gotta do what you gotta do to win the rat race!’ Seemed like reasonable advice in the rough and tumble of construction contracts and bidding wars, but I was reading a good book one day, when the author made the statement:

‘Some say you gotta do what you gotta do, in order to win the rat race: well, I’m not a rat, and I’m running a different kind of race!”
Chris Karen Walsh's photo.
The author is right. I am not a dog, I am not a rat, neither are you, if you are a blood bought child of the king, called to honor, dignity, respect, and the wisdom of God.

Reminds me of a funny story:
A farm boy got a white football for Christmas. He played with it awhile and then kicked it over into the neighbor’s yard. The old rooster ran out, looked at it, and called the hens to see it. “Now look here,” the rooster said, “I don’t want you girls to think I’m complaining, but I just want you to see what they are doing next door.”

Sure we work hard to feed our families, and to fight for our companies and ministries, but we are running a different race. An eternal race, with souls as the great prize we fight for. There are times God Himself will intervene in our lives, and businesses, and we will make decisions by His Spirit, that in the natural appear to be insane, for He may direct us to love our enemies, and to lay our swords down at times, as He has eternity, and eternal salvation on His mind.
Chris Karen Walsh's photo.
We are all in business, the salvation business, the great commission, the harvest of souls. It has been said that Christian leadership can be the lonliness place on the planet, as we make decisions sometimes in love, in secret, in obedience to the Lord, that cost us personal sacrifices that only He can understand. Yet, understand, He does, and He keeps the books. There are things I have done, that at the time appeared business stupid, yet ten, twenty years later, bore much fruit for the kingdom, as He moved, saved, and transformed my previous enemies, and they came and told me about it, and that I was a major part of their salvation, My example caused them to come to Jesus, and change everything.
How we live, before our enemies in the business world, our leadership example in word and deed, will affect future generations.

Ps 73:15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.

Authority and Responsibility are simply two sides of the same coin. When we take responsibility to serve, go the extra mile, and pick up the slack to do what needs to be done, (even when it is not our job!), we find that we are promoted by God, and given more authority. Great authority, God’s way, is the grace and ability to serve more people. Dictators want authority, without responsibility. If we give them place in areas we have a God given responsibility to do for ourselves (is Food Stamps, government cell phones, benefits we didn’t earn) then we give them authority, they should never have been given.
I liked Ronald Reagan’s famous quote: ‘Me, I’m simply a servant of all, Guess you could call me the chief janitor in the White House’

Like Spiderman says as Peter Parker: ‘With great power, comes great responsibility’.
great power
In the kingdom of God, it generally goes the other way: as we take more responsibility in serving, our promotion will come, and we will be given more authority, to serve more people.

Jesus summed it up like this:
Mr 10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
servant king
Let’s pray:
‘Father, help me to be in the world victoriously, but not of it. Help me to gauge my decisions in light of your Word and Spirit, measuring my walk by your standards, not the mere standards of the world system, and business world. Speak to me, where I need to change and go, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

In Whom

 

who I am

We have looked at some of the verses that include the terms ‘in Him’ and ‘in Christ’. We have discovered the importance of understanding the word Christ to mean the anointed One and His power. There is much more in the word Christ than this course touches, for the word Christ is used 532 times in the New Testament! Obviously, there are things about God’s anointing we all need to learn.

 

Now let’s look at some verses that include the term ‘in whom’.

 

Ps 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

 

Mt 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

 

Mt 12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

 

Mt 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

 

Mr 1:11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

 

Because of Jesus, God has adopted you into His family. You are His child. Because of the blood of Jesus, you have complete and total access to the throne of God. May you hear in your heart, the same words Father God spoke of Jesus over 2000 years ago.

 

“This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased”. This is my beloved daughter, in whom I am well pleased.”

 

As you put God’s word in your mouth, and proclaim His promises, Mt. 12:18 and 17:5 is true of you, ‘Behold my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased, he (or she) shows forth my judgements to the Gentiles, hear him”

 

Isa 45:11 Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

 

God is waiting to hear His word echoed out of the earth from and to heaven, that He may display His acts of power to this generation. When His word is spoken in authority here in the earth, He backs it up in power.

 

Even angels listen for the Word of God given voice in the earth, for they are ministering spirits sent forth from God to minister for us, the promises of God.

 

Ps 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

 

Heb 1: 13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

 

Angels are listening for and acting upon, the Word of God spoken in the earth. They are ministering FOR you!

 

1Co 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

 

Interesting how this verse reads. When we pray in the Holy Spirit in other tongues, there are languages of men being spoken, and languages of angels being uttered. Ever considered that while you are praying in the Holy Spirit, that the Holy Spirit may well be commanding and commissioning angels around the earth, through you!

 

 

Let’s see this again in another familiar passage of Scripture,

 

Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

See it here, the divine connection. God pours out His Spirit upon us, and we prophesy (that is, speak His Word), He backs up His word with His power (which includes angels), as He shows forth wonders in heaven above, and signs here in the earth beneath, all for one main purpose, that many shall call on the name of the Lord, and be saved.

 

In light of eternity, you are one of the redeemed, saved from death, hell and the grave. Yet you are also a child of destiny, called into God’s great redemptive plan to work with Him in the redemption of others. This will involve using His authority, granted to you through Christ, over the world, the flesh and the devil. Therefore it is essential child of God that you see yourself as you truly are in Him, that you can understand and exercise your rights and privileges as His royal heir.

 

Let’s continue to look at your identity, in Him, by studying what the Word of God says of you.

 

2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

 

Notice, here, that those people who are not born-again, are not in Him. They are literally found spiritually, in darkness. Satan is referred to as the god of this world, and he works through deception and lies. There is no power encounter required between God and the devil, rather it is a truth encounter that makes freedom available. This verse shows again how Satan, the father of lies works. Through thoughts, in the minds of people, he convinces them of the irrationality the simplicity of Jesus brings to any individual that simply believes.

 

“What comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”

– A.W. Tozer

 

Ro 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

 

1Co 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

 

Let’s agree with the Word of God, revealed to us here.

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Declare, ‘Thank-you Father, that the glorious light of the gospel of Christ, has shone upon me. I believe that I am not conformed to this world and it’s way of thinking, but am being transformed by the renewing of my mind. By faith, I declare, that I have the mind of Christ.:

 

Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

 

Let’s declare, “Thank-you Father for my redemption through the precious blood of Jesus, for forgiving my sins, and for the riches of your grace towards me.”

 

Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

 

Let’s declare, “Thank-you Father for my inheritance, that you have already decided to give to me in Jesus. I believe I receive it, now.”

 

Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise,

Let’s declare, “Father, because I trust in you, having heard the truth, I have been sealed by the Holy Spirit you promised.

 

1Pe 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

Let’s declare, “Father, I desire the sincere milk of your word, and I thank-you for growing me up in you.”

 

Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

Eph 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

1Pe 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

 

Let’s declare, “I thank you Father, for building me up in you, a temple of the Holy Spirit here in the earth. Thank-you for make me a living stone, your spiritual house, a priest made acceptable to you by Jesus Christ. I praise you, and worship you for what you have done, offering up a spiritual sacrifice to you. Hallelujah!

 

Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

Pr 28:1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

 

Declare, “Though I am meek, I am not weak, and I am faithful to you. Thank-you for boldness to live for you today.”

 

Col 2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

Pr 2:3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

 

Isa 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

 

Let’s pray, for in these verses are great provisions and change for your life.

 

“Father, I see that in Jesus, are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I seek knowledge and understanding, that I might understand your fear O Lord, and find the knowledge of God. Please grant me treasures out of darkness, and your hidden riches from secret places, that it might be known that you Lord, which call me by name, are the God of Israel.”

 

John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

1Pe 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

 

Let’s pray, “Father, I have not seen you, yet I believe, and am blessed beyond what I can ask or think. I love you, for you are so good to me, granting me joy unspeakable and full of glory.”

 

In Him

 

Ge 18:18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

 

We are grafted into Abraham’s blessing through Jesus!

 

Ps 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

We are Blessed, empowered to prosper, because we have placed our trust, in Him.

 

Ps 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

He is our buckler, our defense, we are protected as we deliberately trust Him!

 

Ps 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Ps 34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Ps 37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

 

Ps 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

 

Pr 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

 

Mt 14:2 And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

 

In this passage, people were wondering who Jesus was, for they had seen the presence of God at work in the ministry of John the Baptist, convicting of sin and calling people to repentance. Yet, for the sake of this study, I will use this text to assure you that our Lord Jesus is still a miracle man, God the Son, and mighty works still shew forth themselves in him.

 

Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

 

Everywhere Jesus went in His earthly ministry, miracles were wrought. You too are a son or daughter of God. Everywhere you go, miracles should be wrought. How? By faith, and by the operation of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit, working in the earth, gives gifts to his church, nine in all. They are listed here.

 

1 Cor 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

 

The Scripture admonishes us to earnestly desire these gifts, while walking in the love of God. 1 Corinthians 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

 

It must then, be a regular practice of every Christian to seek God for His spiritual gifts, to aid a hurting humanity. The working of miracles is one of these gifts. God wants to use you to heal the sick, divide the loaves and fishes, turn water into wine, whatever it takes to meet human need, and to both glorify Him and turn many to Him. We have not, because we ask not, it is time to regularily ask God for miracles to abound in our daily lives. John 14:12 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.

 

Let’s pray, “Father, I see that miracles are your calling card in the earth, and I want to be like Jesus, in the working of miracles. I ask you Holy Spirit to do miracles in my life, manifesting the greater works Jesus promised for my generation. Amen”

 

Homework:

1. Go lay hands on some sick people, pray for someone’s finances, believe for a marriage to be restored, whatever He leads you to do, and see the awesome power of God displayed in your life.

2. Testify over the remainder of the course how God is continuing to manifest miraculously through your life.

The lips of the Righteous feed many!

Use your mouth and Words on purpose!

faith speaks

There is a verse in Proverbs that reads:
Pr 10: 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

As most of you know I owned and operated a carpentry company for many years, and as the company grew, I realized my time was far better spent estimating and bidding work, collecting checks, managing projects, ordering materials, and fixing or getting tools on the right job, on time. (If you do Facebook, and want to see some cool pics of some of the projects we built, check out: https://www.facebook.com/Grace-Interior-Trim-LLC-244907400682/?fref=ts

One day at work, as I was blazing along on my cell phone, doing sales calls, setting appointments, ordering materials, and moving at incredible speed,  a bitter carpenter said to me: ‘Must be nice, you don’t even work any more, all you do is talk on that damn phone all day!”

Even though I was writing that man’s paycheck, I took a deep breath, and asked the Lord, what He thought about the man’s comment, because there is some truth, in what the man said: Construction is not for the faint hearted, you gotta bust a move to make stuff happen, because you only get paid, for what you get built, and you are constantly working yourself out of a job. The Scripture is plain: 2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat

work overalls

When he said, ‘all you do is talk on the damn phone all day’ I was reminded of the verse:

Pr 14:23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.

Another version reads: Proverbs 14:23 Amplified Bible (AMP)
23 In all labor there is profit, but idle talk leads only to poverty.

work profit

Asked the Lord, if I was wasting time on the phone, when bold and loud Holy Spirit spoke to me: Pr 10: 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom.

Lips of the righteous

I wasn’t using my phone for idle chit chat, but it was a weapon of war in my hand, as a seasoned leader.

Besides, I was serving Jesus, and had a covenant with God, and when I did a moral inventory of my work week vs this man’s I realized I worked far more hours, with far more stress and responsibility than that man could presently understand.

How much more, as a minister of the gospel! We have authority, anointing, and the very living word of God upon our lips, opening the door to heaven or hell in a person’s life as we preach God’s Word!

I take this responsibility extremely seriously!

God is not joking when we read: Pr 13:3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

words many transgress

Pr 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

I love the power of words! https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2015/02/05/let-your-spirit-free/

My words, spoken in authority in prayer over your life, mine, and my families, are destroying devilish plots against us, and producing acts of blessing, healing, miracles, revelation, wisdom, joy, peace, provision and prosperity in us, and our families!

word of fire

Though I now serve in full time ministry, and part-time construction, through prayer and the release of my confession of faith each day, My lips, still feed many.

So should yours!

Let’s Pray:
‘Father, set a watch on my lips, and grant me utterance in the Holy Spirit today, as we speak words of faith, power, deliverance, and blessing into the earth, enforcing your love, power, kingdom, truth, will and way in this generation, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen!”

Acts 17  :5  But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.
6  And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
In sports and in business, I have heard the statement: ‘Just cause YOU can’t does not mean that I can’t. You are not me’. Remember watching one of the episodes of ‘The Man from Snowy River’, and the bad guys had stolen Macgregors horses. No one would go with him at first to retrieve them, and he found himself galloping on top of a ridge, high above the outlaws.

 Leadership involves championship thinking and actions. You will be opposed by lesser spirits, who do not have the same level of faith, commitment, and zeal as you do, and because of their unbelief, or lack of hearing from God, they cause an uproar, trying to stop you, and the work of God through you.
Welcome to leadership! What are you going to do, when all hell appears arrayed against you, and what you believe God has told you to do? Are you going to overcome evil with good, love your enemies, while exercising violent faith against their traps, obstacles, and tumults, so that they label you, like these first apostles: ‘These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;’

It has been said, that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. One of my favorite redneck verses, when I am falsely accused is Ps 50:9 : I will receive no bull out of your house! LOL!
 Laugh in the face of adversity, and make the devil mad! Love people, take ground for the gospel, and mobilize strategic air strikes on behalf of the kingdom of God (prayer that blasts principalities and powers), and keep on turning the world of darkeness upside down, til it is all right side up, and under the Lordship of Jesus!
Remember is a liar, and the father of all lies. The ABC’s of satan are accusation, blame, and criticizm. Death by insinuation, that elusive whispering campaign, designed to slime you, discredit you, and make you feel hopeless, discouraged, and inferior. It’s an attack on the favor of God upon your life! Lift up the shield of faith, is it not written: Ps 5:11  But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
12  For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Luke 6:22  Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
23  Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
The joy of the Lord is strength, so work yourself up at least a little gleeful giggle today if you are going through stuff, because you are a little too bold to be contained, in peoples current understanding. Love em, instruct them where you can, and then move on, in obedience to Holy Spirit.
Heb 10:32  But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
No test, no testimony, no guts, no glory, no testimony for the newsletter story. Take time to laugh today, greater is He in you, than all those arrayed against you.
Let’s Pray:

I love you, and thank you for your goodness, grace, and for speaking to me today! You are the way, and my waymaker, making a way through this, causing me to emerge victorious over it all, for victory is my DNA, the natural result of my obedience to you. Amen!’'

Acts 17  :5  But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.
6  And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
In sports and in business, I have heard the statement: ‘Just cause YOU can’t does not mean that I can’t. You are not me’. Remember watching one of the episodes of ‘The Man from Snowy River’, and the bad guys had stolen Macgregors horses. No one would go with him at first to retrieve them, and he found himself galloping on top of a ridge, high above the outlaws. The lead outlaw said: ‘He is no threat, he cannot get down from there” the other replied: ‘Don’t forget who that is up there’.
 Leadership involves championship thinking and actions. You will be opposed by lesser spirits, who do not have the same level of faith, commitment, and zeal as you do, and because of their unbelief, or lack of hearing from God, they cause an uproar, trying to stop you, and the work of God through you.
Welcome to leadership! What are you going to do, when all hell appears arrayed against you, and what you believe God has told you to do? Are you going to overcome evil with good, love your enemies, while exercising violent faith against their traps, obstacles, and tumults, so that they label you, like these first apostles: ‘These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;’
Maybe you have not communicated fully enough with others, and you have operated outside the chain of command somewhat: Which is worse: Bold, zealous actions for God, or paralysis by analysis, where an idea gets wonderfully discussed, but never implemented. If you blew it, fess up where you messed up, and don’t take yourself too seriously.
Happy is the person who can laugh at himself. He will never cease to be amused.

It has been said, that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. One of my favorite redneck verses, when I am falsely accused is Ps 50:9 : I will receive no bull out of your house! LOL!
 Laugh in the face of adversity, and make the devil mad! Love people, take ground for the gospel, and mobilize strategic air strikes on behalf of the kingdom of God (prayer that blasts principalities and powers), and keep on turning the world of darkeness upside down, til it is all right side up, and under the Lordship of Jesus!
Remember is a liar, and the father of all lies. The ABC’s of satan are accusation, blame, and criticizm. Death by insinuation, that elusive whispering campaign, designed to slime you, discredit you, and make you feel hopeless, discouraged, and inferior. It’s an attack on the favor of God upon your life! Lift up the shield of faith, is it not written: Ps 5:11  But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
12  For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
You have favor with God and man, as you believe it, receive it, and proclaim it by faith, in the authority granted to you by Jesus!
Luke 6:22  Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
23  Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
The joy of the Lord is strength, so work yourself up at least a little gleeful giggle today if you are going through stuff, because you are a little too bold to be contained, in peoples current understanding. Love em, instruct them where you can, and then move on, in obedience to Holy Spirit.
Heb 10:32  But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
No test, no testimony, no guts, no glory, no testimony for the newsletter story. Take time to laugh today, greater is He in you, than all those arrayed against you.
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, I thank you for boldness today, making me to blessed to be distressed, too anointed to be disappointed, to powerful for the devil and unbelieving men to contain. Jesus! I love you, and thank you for your goodness, grace, and for speaking to me today! You are the way, and my waymaker, making a way through this, causing me to emerge victorious over it all, for victory is my DNA, the natural result of my obedience to you. Amen!’'

Did YOU hear what the devil is saying about me today?
