the Word of God is Amazing! which becomes Truth when the Spirit of Truth enters your heart… truths such as… “the eyes of my understanding”. did you know your understanding has eyes? with ones Heart he believes? Why? why do i believe with my heart and not my mind…??
we are a spirit… with a soul… Father God breathed into us a living soul… within the soul consists all our emotions and desires… originally the soul was full of Fathers divine nature and desires, but became corrupted by satan… we as a spirit live in a fallen body and think with a fallen mind… until reborn… but even then we must learn to allow our soul to be restored by Fathers Holy Spirit… our Helper. once reborn we can read the Word and it renews the mind as the Word becomes engrafted upon the heart… Jesus restores your soul and the desires become Holy for the Holy Spirit is Holy… which is and was the original plan and design… if your not baptized in the Spirit… you… the spirit stays asleep! Awaken O sleeper. in Jesus Name!
the heart of Satan is where Pride of self… Pride of life… Pride of position… beauty of self image began. self will– became god to —self. study these chapters first:
origin of sin: “You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.” Isaiah 14:12-14 further indicates that Satan (Lucifer) sinned in his pride and his coveting of God’s throne. When he rebelled against God, Satan was ejected from heaven (Ezekiel 28:15-17; 1 Timothy 3:6).
these chapters begin speaking of a human king and then goes into the supernatural. if self is not crucified in Christ ( Galatians 2:20)
this process happens to many today who profess Christ as their Saviour, but flesh is never crucified because they never allow Him…
“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.”
Jesus must be King of our Heart… a laid down life… Romans 12 is clear. give yourself a living sacrifice. this means do not quench the Holy Spirit. a need to fully surrender… giving God All glory, doing all things for His glory and doing all things in Love. in Him by His Spirit and by His might. allowing the Word of the Lord to renew our minds… not leaning on the carnal mind… not leaning on our understanding… am i perfect at all this No but the Spirit of God in me is!
by Not conforming to this world… many allow conversations and hobbies[lifestyles… walks of life] to bring them into wrong agreements… from our Heart comes forth LIFE… our Words have the power of death and Life… this is so true… we as saints are to take dominion and authority in the Name of Jesus. in peace yes… gently yes… declaring the spoken Word. binding up darkness…
Jesus said… “I give you the keys of the Kingdom”… bind and loose…
binding the broken hearts and allowing the light of the gospel to flood dark places. we are ambassadors of Christ by Grace… through Faith and operating in obedience to our First Love… King Jesus.
“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love”
we are ambassadors of Christ! WOW… blows my carnal finite mind!
discernment is critical… a gift given by the Holy Spirit. eyes of your understanding to be opened… to the wiles of Satan and to the moving of Gods Spirit. to observe seasons and times… Greek: χρόνος (chronos) and kairos moments… there is a time for everything stated in Ecclesiastes 3. the Time is Now to Fast… pray… serve (give). to call upon the Lord… and of course we must First repent!
The cutting edge of ministry is preaching to the pagan. The cutting edge of evangelism is winning the lost. If a movement loses that and picks up the secondary concern of training and disciplining, then it begins to slide toward denominational stagnation. We build Bible schools and produce students who will teach in the schools and pastor the churches, but evangelism will begin to fall away. If evangelism is not a burning foundational commitment that runs through the ranks, then everything else will grow stale.
the sons of God must be led by the Holy Spirit. God heals… saves… Today!!!
our Heart must be pure. meaning? it’s not about me– Bryan– it’s not about my ministry or my church or my denomination! it’s about Him… Jesus! the whole bible is about Jesus… Father Gods testimony of His redemption of His people. What HE did and is going to do through His children. His Joy… His First Love! His eyes are wells of FIRE! Love!
it’s All for Him… a laid down life that says SEND me… use me! no matter what because the debt is paid! less of Bryan and more of Jesus… BUT we must pattern ourselves by HIS walk His life…
as it is written: Pattern yourselves after me [follow my example], as I imitate and follow Christ (the Messiah).
we must allow the Holy Spirit to freely move… that begins with Worship from the Heart… Crying Out from the wilderness… from this presence of death that presses upon us here in a fallen world… a hunger and thirst that can only be satisfied by His Presence and by His Glory… preaching Christ Crucified! which ultimately crucifies a congregation!
1 Corinthians 1:29-31 (NKJV)
29 that no flesh should glory in His presence.
30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—
31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”
