SADDLED ON THE SIDELINES

August 17, 2014

God commands us to be a doer of the Word, and not just a hearer.  When you hear the Word of God in church, on TV and/or the radio, and you don’t obey the Word of God, you are just saddled on the sidelines.

“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” (James 1:22)

“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.”

(Matthew 7:24)

“Keep your loins girded and your lamps burning.” (Luke 12:35) 

Always be prepared to follow the commands of God and do what He has called you to do – whether to teach, evangelize, pastor, or to reach out to others through a community-based nonprofit organization.

It is essential that once you take the first step in accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, that you take the 2nd step of R-reading, S-studying, and M-meditating on God’s Word so you will be continually built up in God, and increase in knowledge and understanding of the Word of God.  As you do this, you will become rooted and grounded in the Word of God.  That is, fixed and unmovable.  No one and nothing can move you (misdirect) from the truth.  You will not be deceived by false doctrines and vain philosophies.

“Have the roots of your being firmly and deeply planted (fixed and founded in God), being continually built up in Him, becoming more increasingly confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving.” (Colossians 2:7-8)

Don’t be satisfied to just sit on the sidelines by going to church, but not reading God’s Word; singing in the choir, but not worshipping God from your heart; putting money in the offering plate, but not giving from your heart to advance the Kingdom of God (to help others accept and commit their lives to Christ).   Come into the kingdom where Jesus Christ reigns and gives you everlasting love, joy, and peace, and meets all of your needs.

“But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

 “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:  he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul:  he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”  (Psalm 23)

 Moreover, God gives you gifts and talents to use to serve others.  When you use your gifts to serve others, you:

  1. Advance the Kingdom of God
  2. Bless God
  3. Experience fulfillment and joy in blessing others.

Using your God-given gifts and talents is like milk.  If you let milk sit and don’t use it, it sours and thereby becomes of no use, and must be thrown out.  Likewise, if you let your God-given gifts and talents sit without using them, then they become sour (of no use).  If we read Matthew 25:13-30 (Parable of the Talents), we discover that eh Master of the property (God) gave on servant 5 talents another servant 2 talents, and another servant 1 talent.  The servants who were given 5 and 2 talents multiplied their talents by using them.  However, the servant who received one talent dug a hole and buried his talent.  His master was not pleased because due to the servant’s lack of use of his talent, the master realized that this servant was wicked, lazy and idle, rather than a faithful and trustworthy servant.  Consequently, his lack of faithfulness caused his master to take away the 1 talent the servant buried, and give it to the servant with 5 talents who doubled his talents.  So you see, it is very important to be faithful in using your gifts and talents to serve others and bless God.

Remember, you are accountable to God in all you do and say.

Missing the Mark

August 10, 2014

The (Greek) word for sin is “harmartano”, which means to miss the mark not share in the prize); to err due to faults; offend; trespass.

The (Hebrew) word for sin is “chata”, which means to miss; forfeit; lack; to cause to lead astray.

When a person sins, they miss the mark.  That is, they miss the blessings of love, joy, peace, and fulfillment that come with obeying God’s Word.

In I Timothy 3:16, it says that “all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”  Therefore, the Word of God is your Instruction Book for Life.  It leads and guides you along life’s journey.  “Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light to my path.” 

(Psalm 119:105)

The key to this powerful Instruction Book for Life is that you must have faith in it.  Faith means more than just believing. It means totally trusting, depending upon and being confident (assured) of the Word of God.

(In John 1:1), it says that “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God, and the Word was with God Himself.”  He was present originally with God.  All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.  In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.

God admonishes us to love the Lord (Word) with all your heart, mind, and soul.  We show that we love the Lord (Word) by obeying it.  “. . . obey His voice according to all that I command you today, you and your children, with all your mind and heart and with all your being.”  (Deuteronomy 30:2) We should not just be hearers of the Word, but doers also. (James 1:22)

When you obey the Word of God, you live a life of prosperity, good success, and wisdom.

“This book of the law shall not depart out of my mouth, but I shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it.  For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.”

(Joshua 1:8)

“So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them (obeying them) will be like a sensible man who builds his house upon the rock.” (Matthew 7:24)

Another key to the Instruction Book of Life having operation in your life and yielding results is to deny your will and emotions.  You must deny your desires (to sleep in rather than go to church), emotions

(to maintain anger rather than forgive), and will (work a job, rather than start the business God wants you to start), and Make a Decision to Follow God’s Will.

You must deny the self life – self seeking; self pleasing, self confidence, and self satisfaction.   You must be liberated from the self life.  Only then, will you be able to experience the fullness of God – the abundant life that comes from reading, studying, and meditating and applying the Word of God in your life.  Thereby, pleasing and glorifying God.

The denial of self is a daily process that requires a daily decision of denying self and accepting God’s will for your life.  Your life will be constantly renewed (changed) to conform to God’s way (attitude, emotions, and actions) of living.  As your mind is renewed and your actions conform to the Word of God, then you will experience love, joy and peace and good success.

God desires for his children to enjoy life on an ongoing basis.  Not just 3 years, 5 years, or 10 years, but throughout their life.

“I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance to the full, till it overflows.”  (John 10:10)

“The Lord is my strength and my impenetrable Shield:  my heart trusts in, relies on, and confidently leans on Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise Him. The Lord is their (unyielding) Strength, and He is the Stronghold of salvation to His anointed.”  (Psalm 28:7-8)

MY CONFESSION BECOMES MY POSSESSION

August 3, 2014

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.  (Proverbs 4:23 AMP

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it. (Proverbs 18:21 AMP)

For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced. (Matthew 12:37 AMP)

 

If we confess faith-filled words, rather than doubtful words. You will experience the effects of your words because they will manifest in the physical.

Faith-filled Words Doubtful Words
I am more  than a conqueror through Jesus Christ I am defeated.
I believe I receive my healing for the high blood pressure. I’m not feeling well.
I am wonderfully made by God. I’m just a nobody.
God loves me. Nobody cares about me.
God blesses me. I’m hanging in there.
I have the victory through Jesus Christ. God is not answering my prayers.
The joy of the Lord is my strength. I’m feeling sad because . . .

When we confess words out of our mouth, we are sowing seeds.  Positive confessions yield positive actions and results.  Negative confessions yield negative actions and results. Therefore, it is essential that we watch what we say because “you shall have what you say.”  You shall reap what you sow.

All actions begin with thoughts.  As we continue to purify our thoughts by renewing our minds through the Word of God, we will see and experience positive actions in our lives, and sow positive actions in others lives.

Renewing our mind through the Word of God means reading, studying and meditating on the Word daily.  In doing so, we will reach higher spiritual heights in God, and grow closer to God.  A closer walk with God yields revelation, knowledge, and wisdom.

Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing the Word of Truth. (II Timothy 2:15 AMP)

 

 

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

By Kenneth Copeland

As born-again, Spirit filled believers, our stepping in to the overflow of God’s Glory and walking in it daily doesn’t just happen automatically.  No. In fact, it’s possible that we could stand in the middle of the greatest outpouring of God’s Glory this world has ever seen, and just watch it pass us by, never experiencing a drop of it.  What you and I experience in these days of overflow comes down to or mouths.  That’s right, the degree of overflow you and I experience in our lives these last of the last days will be determined by our mouths.  It will be the result of the words we speak.  You see, you and I are where we are right now because of the words we spoke yesterday …and the day before that … and the day before that.  That’s simply the way God created us.  The words we speak day after day carry the same degree of force behind them as the words God Himself speaks – even the same force as the Word that came out of His mouth and created the universe.

All the overflow in Jesus’ life and ministry did not begin manifesting until He began speaking the Word of God – not His own words, but God’s Word (John 12:47-50).

We are the prophets of our own lives! (Matthew 12:34-37).  As believers, however, you and I now have God’s Word to speak and God’s Anointing with which to speak it.  . . . Our future is up to us, and it’s all based on the words that we use to  “bringeth forth” things – words to “bringeth forth good things,” or words to “bringeth forth evil things.”

I am the prophet of my own life.  My words – and God’s Word – in my life determine my future.  They determine my health, my wealth and my place in eternity.  My faith-filled words are alive and full of power.  They are enriched -–they are backed – by the Anointing of God, the very power that created the universe.  I am what the Word says I am.  I can do what the Word says I can do.  I can have what the Word says I can have. Out of the abundance of my Word-filled heart, my Word-filled mouth speaks.  Arise and shine!

 

Not a sick day.  Not a broke day.  Not a sad day.  But every day, an overflow day!

 

By Kenneth Hagin – “ACT ON THE WORD”

For verily I (Jesus) say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.  Therefore, I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.  (Mark 11:23,24)

What you say is your faith speaking.  Therefore, you will always have in your life

what you believe for and say.

Did you notice that the word “say” in some form is in Mark 11:23 three times, and the word “believe” is in that verse only once?

My people primarily are not missing it in their believing, for they have been taught to believe and to have faith.  Where they’re missing it is in what they’re saying.

Jesus said, “When you pray, believe you receive, and you shall have it.  (Mark 11:24)

 

Kenneth Hagin was sick and began speaking doubt, because when his friends asked “How are you feeling?”  He answered “Well, some of the symptoms have come back on me.  Then he remembered that when he would talk about the symptoms, from my inward man would come the words:  I’m well, thank you.  The Word of God says Jesus took my infirmities and bare my sicknesses.He began to change his confession.

What you say, good or bad, is your faith speaking.  If you’re saying, “I’ll never make it,” you won’t.  Proverbs 6:2 says “Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.”

The problem with many people is they’re double-minded.  But the Bible says that we shouldn’t let anyone who wavers in his faith – a double-minded person – think that he will receive anything of the Lord.  (James 1:5-8)  That is why we must hold fast to our original confession of faith, right in the face of seeming defeat.  I know: I’ve done it.  I won’t tell you that it’s easy, because you have to fight your flesh and the devil to do it.  But when you hold your ground and act on the Word, you will see those things, which you say come to pass.

MOVING ONWARD TOWARD COMPLETION

July 27, 2014

In order to move forward, we must take steps.  Each step is a building block for the next step; each step leading you closer to the finish line (the completed goal).

Who orders our steps? God

“The steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord.” (Psalm 37:23)

But we must allow God to order our steps by submitting to Him.

Laying down our own desires and adopting His desires for our lives.

This requires a willful choice.

Taking steps requires forward movement.  When you move forward, you are growing and graduating from one level of growth to the next level.  However, if you are not taking steps – moving forward – then you are doing one of two things: (1) stagnating – remaining still and not going anywhere; or (2) digressing – moving backward.

Taking steps toward completion of a goal is like walking.  When you walk, you are constantly taking steps forward; constantly in motion.  The steps you take when you walk get you from point A to point B.  For example, if you want to get to the bus stop, which is three blocks from your house, then you must take the necessary steps to reach the bus stop.

Moreover, as we allow God to order our steps, we remain focused and single-minded, rather than veering off the course that he has set for us.  It is important that we remain focused and single-minded because if we veer from our God-given course by taking a wrong turn, we begin to take steps in the wrong direction.  Therefore, we are no longer moving forward, but backward.  We are no longer growing but digressing.  This is analogous to traveling.  Suppose your destination is Annapolis, Maryland.  You are traveling on the Beltway, and you see road signs – Route 50 – Washington, DC, and Route 50 – Annapolis, MD.  Instead of going in the direction of Annapolis, MD you go in the direction of Washington, DC.   Thus, you are off the course to Annapolis.  If you continue on Route 50 – Washington, DC you will never make it to Annapolis.  You must make a U-Turn and go in the right direction.

In the course of life, once we veer off the course God has set before us, there is a way to get on the right course.  That way is to ask God for directions back onto the straight and narrow road that leads us on the path of His perfect will.  The longer we continue to take steps backward, the longer it will take us to reach our final goal.  Therefore, it is crucial that we allow God to order our steps so that we can remain on the straight and narrow road.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14 – KJV)

“This is what I told them:  Obey me, and I will be your God, and you will be my people.  Only do as I say, and all will be well.  But my people would not listen to me.  They kept on doing whatever they wanted, following the stubborn desires of their evil hearts.  They went backward instead of forward.” (Jeremiah 7:23-24- AMP)

“I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright:   no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done?  Every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.” (Jeremiah 8:6 – KJV)

This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.
(Jeremiah 6:16 – KJV)

Requirements for Staying on the Straight and Narrow Road are:

A.        Diligence

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6 – KJV)

“Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper and be satisfied.” (Proverbs 13:4 NLV)

Prayer – “Pray without ceasing.” (I Thessalonians 5:17 -KJV)

Study the Word – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (II Timothy 2:15 – KJV)

Fellowship With Other BelieversNot forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.(Hebrews 10:25 – KJV

Praise and Worship – “I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (Psalm 34:1 – KJV)

Benefits of Staying on the Straight and Narrow Road are:

  1. You remain in God’s perfect will;
  2. You increase your level of intimacy with the Lord Jesus Christ;
  3. You increase your knowledge and understanding of the Word;
  4. You are able to bless others; and
  5. You remain in a state of readiness to hear from God.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalm 119:105 – KJV)
