The all new ways of Life in the SPIRIT

The New Testament life in the Spirit is all about transcending the meagerness of our fleshly abilities. My good behavior in piety counts for nothing and will always come up short of the Glory of GOD. It is the inherent inclinations of my finite thinking to speculate that the way for me to please GOD is by constantly trying to be a good person or better person than what I am.

But, I now understand that if the Holy Spirit is not accomplishing those changes that produce that good within me then I am doing such by my own ability of discipline. I am not saying in any way that this is wrong or that it is a bad thing. What I am saying is that it is impossible to manifest the Glory of GOD without help from GOD quickening those changes by HIS Holiness within my inner man. I should continue to try to be a good person in my own abilities as I learn how to align myself in agreement with the Holy Spirit, cooperating with HIM, as HE does what only HE can do. As I grow more in the ways of the Spirit, I experience the genuine and move away from my practices of Perfectionism. The human way of discipline is my conscious waking mind making a decision to force some kind of acting adherence upon my inner man. This is a practice of perfectionism. If I DO manage to keep up this forced practice for several weeks it will develop into a practical habit, but it is still my conscious waking mind forcing, if you will consider, an external pressure upon the inner man of my soul.

So many Christians are genuinely trying to be good and Godly people by their own efforts to self-discipline themselves according to what the scriptures have to say on the surface. Moderating my behavior by my own ability is a lifestyle choice, even when it is dictated by what is written on the surface of the scriptures. The problem is that my emotional baggage is going to be a major factor in any lifestyle choices I make. I am a flawed creature and the flaws of my baggage, (damaged conditions of unrighteousness in my inner man) are going to doom my piety to fall way short of Holiness. What I should be looking for is the changes that can be made to my inner man by my interaction with the Holiness of GOD. GOD’s character IS Holiness, so HE can do no less than Holiness. What most Christians do not realize is, that if, they are not dealing proactively with the emotionally damaged conditions in their soul, those damaged conditions caused by unrighteousness (iniquity, trespasses, and trauma) are going to continue to hinder any type of spiritual efforts and most all progress they try to make towards becoming a vessel of honor for GOD to use in ministry. And ministry that glorifies GOD is what this Christian life is about. This is not some kind of mysterious situation for a Born again Christian because every has been given the same first ministry. Quite simply, the first ministry that every Christian is called to is a focused reconciliation of who are to the Word of Truth.

The Kingdom truth that we all must realize is that only the Holiness of GOD can address my flawed conditions (that I cannot see) and quicken the landscape of my soul unto whole conditions that are conducive to Fruitfulness. This understanding of the sanctification process is exactly what Jesus was trying to tell us in His parables. Every Christian needs to learn how to start becoming pro-active in contending for the wholeness of mental health through Spiritual sanctification. I also want to encourage you, to not get discouraged when you first start to pro-actively interact with the Holiness of GOD. Everyone needs to first learn how to sweep out their yard; and then, their house of the clutter and trash of the constant pollutions from our interactions in this dark world. This is the first step to taking responsibility for my general soul hygiene. That way, while I am being pro-active for what I am responsible for, the Holy Spirit can deal with what I cannot see and what HE is responsible for. This is the beginning of that sanctification process whereby I can start experiencing the genuine of what it really means to inherit the Kingdom of GOD within. This is all about the genuine.

The Holy Spirit is an expert at making such genuine changes. It is vitally important to my sanctification and Spiritual maturity that I develop the intimacy of my personal relationship with the Holy Spirit.

If I am not a Born again Christian, I do not have the indwelling Holy Spirit. Through sanctification, I slowly surrender my inner man to the sure regeneration of the Holy Spirit quickening me unto whole and righteous conditions that are conducive to the desired plan of GOD for my life.

Through that sanctification by the Holiness of GOD, I can be healed and changed in my inner man unto that godly behavior on progressive levels of righteousness that are the genuine quickening of my inner man; who will now begin to manifest those characteristics of Christ innately because I am becoming more like my Lord in the process.

The goal of every Christian is to experience manifestations of our office of ministry out of us as we become a more vital part of the Body of Christ. The Kingdom truth is that it is the indwelling Holy Spirit that should unction and actuate ministry out of us. Our emotional baggage is going to keep getting in the way of our spiritual endeavors until we learn exactly what we are to do about that issue. Sanctification is the answer. Sanctification by the Holiness of GOD.

Even now, my baggage is bent towards destruction and contributing an overwhelming affect upon the attitudes of my conscience with its decision making abilities. As such, I am not going to be capable of making the best decisions conducive to righteousness because my inner conditions are bent, inclined, and compelled unto my own selfish behavior of unrighteousness. As a Born again Christian, I now have a choice as to whether or not I allow my Sin Nature to control who I am or I align myself in agreement with the indwelling Holy Spirit. If I pro-actively nurture and feed my Spirit man more than giving in to my Sin Nature I move and grow in Faith in that direction of sanctification. The majority of Christians have never experienced what it is like to progressively inherit the Kingdom of GOD within and see that springing up of living waters; so they have no frame of reference from which to stand on and be able to distinguish what it is like to inherit the Kingdom of GOD within. I know what it is like to be a withered branch. I know what it is like to experience the flow of living waters of ministry. And I know what it is like to be in that place, where, because of my choice to live in sin a state of sin, I slowly experience the dwindling and drying up of that flow of living waters. For that Christian who has experienced sanctification and the Holy Spirit unctioning ministry from within, they will know for certain what it is like to experience the diminished flow of living waters and that withering effect where ministry dries up.

All through the ministry of Jesus, He exemplified righteous behavior. He did not have a Sin Nature or its damage of unrighteousness (wounds of iniquity, trespass, or trauma) in His soul; (that I DO have), that interfere with MY ability to see with Spiritual clarity, and manifest innately, righteous behavior and responses towards others. As I cooperate with the Holy Spirit’s agenda to cleanse the conditions of unrighteousness in my soul I change the attitudes of my conscience. This process quickens my will to become more like HIS will. This is because the attitudes of my conscience are developed out of the contents in my soul. As I give myself New programing I regenerate and develop New attitudes of a changed conscience.

My conscience is formed out of everything I have ever experienced, which is recorded and stored picture perfect in my soul with all of its naughtiness and emotional damage intact. It is normal to not be able to remember everything but in truth you have never forgotten anything because it is all recorded picture perfect in the recesses of the inner man. All that it takes to trigger a memory from storage to the forefront our waking conscious is a thought, or a smell, or even a song; and you will experience it with its attached emotions and feelings. Once a human being enters the celestial Eternal dimension their mind will be unlocked and they will remember everything, whether they are in a Glorified state in Heaven or in Everlasting torment in that domain of Hell. My Naughtiness is not all about vulgarity although it includes such. Naughtiness is more in line with the fact that my conditions are only conducive to zero ability to perform on a righteous level. I am full of the superfluity of naughtiness. My cumulative conditions compounded and formed the attitudes of how my conscience processes life inside my inner man; and how I react or respond to life outside of me. We all have anger management problems because we are flawed creatures in our inner man, who have not been discipled or trained by the Holy Spirit in the ways of sanctification. Learning the all new ways of sanctification and practicing proper soul hygiene is how we remove those spiritual hindrances of unrighteousness that vex us; and in so doing, we cannot help but experience progress in our Spiritual prosperity. The opposite is true also, because even though I may only have very minute change towards goodness in my soul, which all Christians have; the more I give in to temptation and decide to sin the more I am wounding my soul and by adding to those stored up ill conditions with more corruption, the farther away from innate conditions of righteousness do I move in the direction unrighteousness with its destructive inclinations. This is what makes us criminal even though we are Born again. Sanctification changes my inner condition that is by design, expressing the destructiveness of death; unto righteous conditions that will now manifest increasing expressions of that Spiritual life of Fruitfulness.

Galatians 5:17-25 is telling us, “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things ye would.

But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the Law.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, reveling, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of GOD. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

All of those old ways of expressing the characteristics of destruction are inherent because we have suffered within us the damages of life. Even after I have become a Born again Christian I carry that baggage over into my new life in the Spirit.

I can clean up my baggage and reprogram my attitudes that make up my conscience. As I cooperate with the Holy Spirit, HE regenerates the old conditions that formed my current attitudes and thereby, change my conscience and how it processes life. I know that so many times my emotional pain and anger get the better of me. And I could not help but react to situations in life out of my emotional pain. And I would mess up or fail. This is all because of the baggage of those old stored up conditions of unrighteousness in my soul that make up who I am in my inner man. These unrighteous conditions are contrary to healed conditions that are wholeness that can be me through sanctification. Even more so, Spiritually sanctified conditions will innately manifest expressions of that quickened Spiritual Life because that is now what I really am in my inner man.

The writer of Galatians is telling us, the brethren, who are the Born again, that should we decide to live unrepentant in the carnal condition of sinfulness, our soul cannot help but manifest those expressions of the destruction of sinfulness, within and outward to others; and that we cannot expect (as long as we choose to live in sinfulness) to receive directly from the Holy Spirit, (Who is the only one who can give such to each of us) the higher and deeper, and more intimate things of the Kingdom of GOD. He is in no way saying that because we choose to live in carnality that we will not go to Heaven. But we are being presented with the a choice. Once I am the Born again in Christ, there is not anything else that is required of me in order for me to go to Heaven when I die. My Salvation is a done deal in my blood covenant with GOD.

Me, being Born again and my Salvation are secured for me by the perfect work of Christ Jesus alone.

A lost person has no other choice but to depend upon their flesh in self-discipline in order to control and moderate their ill, immoral, disobedient, or unlawful behavior. Their inner carnal conditions express instinctively destructions and death. They can try to control and manage their outer expressions of their inner carnality by self-discipline unto being a morally good and sometimes philanthropic person. But, they are still dead inside and compounding their baggage daily. A hypocritical Christian is managing themselves the same way even though they have the indwelling Holy Spirit. This is why there is no Glory of GOD being manifested in the life of the majority of Christianity. Every Born again Christian has that same salvation in Heaven and has been given the indwelling Holy Spirit to guide us out of and away from our carnal conditions through the sanctification process unto slowly becoming a vessel of honor for GOD to use in order to minister to the needs of others. The people of this world are saying that so many Christians are hypocrites. And they are right. The majority of Christians are acting and pretending to be something on the outside that they know themselves that they are not on the inside. I see this even inside the church. So many have settled into whatever self-moderated level of good behavior that is acceptable within the body of believers they tend to socialize with. For many, after much practice, we have an appearance of godliness, but we are actually denying the Holy Spirit His office of responsibility. But, outside of the church; when the pressure is put upon us by the circumstances of life: the world witnesses a totally different type of behavior being expressed. In other words, the real inner baggage is seen by the world, and they know us by who we really are in our inner man. Sanctification is no longer a mysterious and confusing Doctrine. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired then there is hope.

So many Christians are living in Spiritual confusion. GOD’s Word tells us and HIS Holy Spirit teaches us that it does not haft to be that way. We can experience genuine changes in our inner man through sanctification unto being a living, life breathing manifestation of the Fruit of the Spirit, so that when we are pressured, what comes out of our inner man causes the world to witness the Glorify of GOD.

What is being presented in Galatians is the choice that is available to every Born again Christian. Those old ways of performance of the dictates of the Law by the discipline of self-moderation has been done away with because it was faulty. The all new ways of living life in the Spirit have come. The Old Testament laws operations of perfectionism in order to achieve righteousness within have no place in the New Testament covenant. It is recorded in Matthew 9:16 and 17, “No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garmenr, and the rent is made worse. Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.” In the same way, even though the majority of Christianity is still continuing to practice the ways of that old deadness of perfectionism of religious moderation; it will never manifest the Kingdom of GOD within. We will only continue to know the frustration of self-moderation which is not conducive to the Fruit of the Spirit. Those who continue to practice perfectionism for righteousness are still trying to earn by their managing their flesh the very thing that they already possess in Christ Jesus. Those who are Born again need to learn the all new ways of living life in the Spirit. A Born again Christian is free indeed from Hell and a sure citizen of Heaven, and is now ready to begin inheriting the Kingdom of GOD within. If a Born again Christians lives in sin they will not go to Hell when they die. But they do rob themselves of their Spiritual potential and its greater benefits of Spiritual prosperity that they could enjoy the Everlasting benefits of for all of Eternity, forever. For sure and certain everyone who is Born again and a citizen of Heaven is going to be overjoyed to be there in Heaven with Christ. But Heaven, and beyond will not be the same for everybody who does go to Heaven. The difference between a carnal Christian and a Christian who is inheriting the Kingdom of GOD within their being has everything to do with that sanctification process by Holiness that is ours while we are here. For a Born again Christian, this time we spend here in earth is crucial to our future office of responsibility and our level of rewards we gain in obedience, that will be ours to enjoy and benefit from forever after we leave this base physical existence. We need to eradicate the confusion of double-mindedness with Truth so that we can become single-minded in focus and diligence while contending for the FAITH that was once delivered to the SAINTS through sanctification by Holiness.

My unrighteous conditions of carnality as they occur in life slowly bend my personality and my temperaments. If I want to be a better man I must become a different man in my inner mindscape. I do not become more Spiritual by my own efforts to discipline my flesh and make it behave a certain way that I think is Spiritual. I must learn how to reconcile those old conditions of unrighteousness before the conditions of my mindscape can become whole and then, conducive to Fruitfulness. I can give my inner man new programing instructions as I pro-actively interact with the Holiness of GOD. When I make conscious efforts to discipline my flesh unto what I perceive as godly behavior, I do so with my waking conscious mind in spite of the ill conditions of my inner man. Very basically, my outer waking consciousness is trying to force my inner conditions of unrighteousness to manifest the Holy behavior of love and righteousness. It cannot and will not happen that way. I am at odds with myself and the Spirit. There is disharmony and I will not achieve or experience ANY satisfaction. It is for me no wonder why so many Christians get discouraged and settle into a life of Spiritual mediocrity. Only the Holiness of GOD is capable of any kind of genuine changes, otherwise I am just going to keep producing whatever comes out of those corrupt conditions of unrighteousness. Compared to Holiness I am still going to produce destruction in my wake.

This understanding has a lot to do with what Jesus had to say about that broad way of destruction and that straightened, narrow way that leads to Life Everlasting located in The Book of Matthew 7:13 and 14 that instructs us to, “Enter ye in at the straight gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto Life, and few there be that find it.”

Multiple billions of people have entered in at that broad gate of salvation in Christ Jesus. Very few have so far, ever found their way by the Holy Spirit leading them in sanctification unto experiencing that exalted straight and narrow gate of Spiritual maturity in FAITH. Even though I may be truly Born again of the Spirit of Christ Jesus, I am going to continue in my destruction, maybe, all the way to Heaven, unless I learn THE ALL NEW WAYS OF LIFE IN THE SPIRIT and diligently contend for the FAith that can develop in me as I walk intimately with the Holy Spirit in sanctification. We have no access to that straight and narrow gate if we have not already entered into the Kingdom of heaven through that wide gate by becoming a Born again believer in Christ Jesus. Contrary to what some would think: going in at that straight gate unto that narrow way is not that initial entry into the Kingdom of GOD through becoming a Born again Christian. Only after you ARE become one of the Born again can the Holy Spirit can take you through that narrow gate by the straightening of that sanctification process. As a Born again Christian, I have two types of sanctification. The moment I become a Born again Christian I identify in the crucifixion death of Jesus, whereby, I am judicially, judged and though guilty, pardoned unto positional justification in Christ and translated into my citizen position of a Sanctified SAINT of GOD. In other words, when I became a Born again Christian I was immediately translated into my position of A Sanctified SAINT of GOD. From that instant on GOD sees me as though I am HIS favorite Child. I am now become one of the blessed, and highly favored of GOD, and IN intimacy with HIS love to me. I am now in a secure relationship where I can now learn how to embrace the love my Abba has for me. HE chooses not to see my sin, but instead sees me as though I free from all sin. This is why prayer and confession of sin is so important to be growing more and more in intimacy with GOD as I reveal my innermost self to HIM and HIS Holiness.

GOD sees me as being in Christ Jesus. And until a Christian is persuaded in that truth, they are going to continue to struggle in their relationship with GOD; and waver in Faith to the fact that they now stand in Grace with their Abba, Father. As a perfect Saint, I stand in the absolute Grace of Faith with GOD. No matter where you may be in the intimacy of your personal relationship with GOD you can never fall out of Grace with GOD because it was HE that established you in that basic level of secure Faith when you first became HIS Child in Christ Jesus. Since I am a positionally Sanctified SAINT with GOD, I have been given the indwelling Holy Spirit to lead me in sanctification, whereby, I am now being straightened by Holiness. Now that I am a fully vested citizen of Heaven and the bride of Christ; I have been identified in the resurrection of Jesus by GOD, who gives me the gift of the indwelling Holy Spirit to guide and counsel me in the new of that sanctification process. In Kingdom truth, sanctification is me working out my Salvation within me. I am employing and putting to work the benefits of my Salvation in recognition of that great Majesty of GOD’s love for me. I know that I am a sinner and that I do not deserve it, but I have been pardoned by GOD through Christ Jesus, and it is now all mine to enjoy as I employ it throughout my being. I tremble in awe of the magnanimous generosity of my Abba’s love and blessings to me.

And only by aligning and cooperating with the indwelling Holy Spirit in sanctification, can He, take us in at that straightened gate of sanctification by Holiness, as we are experience that Everlasting Life within our inner man. Everlasting Life is basically caused within by the Holy Spirit quickening my old baggage unto new conditions of wholeness whereby I enjoy elevated Faith unto FAITH and the intimate enlightenment of understanding how all of the Kingdom of operates and functions for my benefit in Spirituality. I begin to know peace with GOD and the conditions of my inner man are no longer in the same odds with Holiness. I am free and so secure in my relationship with GOD that I can now embrace HIS love for me. That love changes my value system whereby I love myself and cannot help but love others. As my old mental conditions healed interaction with Holiness, my emotional pain dissipates and I experience joy on a Spiritually influenced level in spite of circumstances because I can now rejoice in what I do have and not saddened by what I do not have. I have less exasperation as I grow in Spiritual contentment and satisfaction, and I cannot help but express more longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, meekness and the temperate behavior of a man who is walking in agreement with the Holy Spirit and I slowly grow in Faith as I am now contending for that FAITH that was once delivered to the early SAINTS for the suffering and founding of the church. This is the Holy Spirit putting my candle on the candlestick for all of the world to witness and give GOD the Glory.

And so, now I can see, that if I can somehow change the conditions of my inner man then I innately respond to life situations in a totally different way on a totally different level.

Many try to do this through self-help programs and different religions. All religions are false religions that can do no more than moderate. Some religions thrive on hate because they are separated from being enabled to embrace and enjoy the satisfaction of the love of GOD.

Relating with GOD through sanctification by HIS Spirit of Holiness quickens genuine healing that is conducive to the wholeness of righteousness within the inner man of the soul. If those changes are made by GOD in my inner man, then I respond to life situations in ways that I never could have manufactured by my own discipline or my best behavior in piety. The results are of a totally different nature. And that my brothers and sisters is the whole point of sanctification by Holiness.

GOD has given to every Christian initially the very same first assignment or ministry. We all must learn what the ministry of reconciliation is. All of the ways of being pro-active about our soul hygiene is us being reconciled to the Word of Reconciliation and its character of Holiness. The very nature of the Word is Holiness.

John 1:1 tells us that, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with GOD, and the Word was GOD.”

We must be reconciled within ourselves to the ministry of the Word of reconciliation. We have been given the ministry of the Word of reconciliation to our inner man first and then, that Word changes us it will manifest itself outward to others. As we are being reconciled in our inner man, the Holy Spirit will begin to unction expressions of our GOD given office of ministry out of us to help reconcile others from their confusion unto reconciliation the Holy Word of Truth.

John 1:4 tells us that, “In Him was Life; and the Life was the Light of men.”

We cannot really see Spiritual life-giving ministry accomplished through us until we are pro-actively being reconciled to Holiness in our soul. There are many ways that I can do good things through my own ability, but only the Holy Spirit can change me into being conducive to genuine expressions of righteousness, that lift up, encourage, strengthen, build up, and edify with the creative power of GOD. The more I move in that direction by Holiness the more I will leave life-giving Spiritual expressions of ministry in my wake.

This is not as mysterious or difficult as it may sound or one would think, but it is hidden to the eyes and mind of the world, unless they see it in us. And the world being able to see Christ in us is a sweet-smelling savor to GOD. It Glorifies GOD.

I will be clarifying this whole enterprise in greater detail as I move forward towards presenting just how that any Born again Christian can experience what it means to the inherit Everlasting Life within our being.

For the majority of my life, I, myself had no clear cut directions to follow whereby I could find myself experiencing sanctification. I was not persuaded in the security of my citizenship. I was still confused about the distinct difference between Eternal Life and Everlasting Life. I did not know any knowledgeable teachers and I did not know exactly how to inherit the Kingdom of GOD within my being. That is why I am writing this letter so that others may benefit from my trials. I myself, tried to be a good Christian for years upon years. And I was active in practical ways within the different churches that I attended. I would sing in the choir. And I would be involved with rangers, children’s ministries, and scouts. And there were occasions when the Holy Spirit would give me unctions to meet certain Spiritual needs in the pressure of the moment. But, whatever sanctification I was experiencing was slow as a snail. There was nobody who possessed that Reconciliation to the Word, so there was nobody to instruct me in how it was done. Or so I thought. The Holy Spirit is the best teacher that exists.

I actually thought that if I could just keep trying, that eventually one day I would make it and witness the Fruit of the Spirit in me. The Fruit of the Spirit is not about me trying to be a good person. One thing that I did learn, wass that there were times when I put myself in the pressure of being active in serving others that the Holy Spirit was very gracious in spite of my lack, and unctioned from within me something to meet a Spiritual need as I interacted with others. Even so, GOD knew exactly what HE was doing. It was not long after this that an Elder approached me about becoming a part of their national phone counseling ministry. He could see something that was not evident to me. The Holy Spirit was discipling me towards becoming a more Spiritually, vital part of the Body of Christ.

I still did not understand that my trying to be a good person would never result in me producing the Fruit of the Spirit. Nobody would dare to be so vulnerable as to admit that they were experiencing the same situation. I had to learn all by myself that if GOD makes the changes within me, through sanctification, those changes will be conducive to Fruitful conditions.

I, within my best ability to discipline my flesh cannot produce the Fruit of the Spirit. A Christian who is choosing to live in a state of sin is going to dry up and wither. When we repent and show for demonstrations of that repentance the Holy Spirit picks us up where we are at and offers to us instructions. But, most times, we are blind and hard of hearing. Every Christian has to learn through experience what it really means to be reconciled to the Word of Truth. That does not mean that we act out, imitate, or emulate what the Word is saying. We are not to be just a hearer but a doer of the Word. We are to become a living, Life breathing manifestation of the Word. And yet, there are still so many Christians who think, like I did, that if I just keep trying to discipline my flesh, eventually I will achieve that goal of producing the Fruit of the Spirit someday.

What is a definition of insanity?

It is where I keep doing the same old things, hoping that somehow I will achieve new results.

Galatians 6:7 tells me that I am being deceived and mocking the Kingdom genuine that only the Holiness of GOD can quicken within me. My best efforts at disciplining my flesh have not worked so far; and it will not work nor attain that merit of accomplishment. Self-discipline is limited to my best natural abilities. I can only rise in the pursuit of discipline to the highest level of my best abilities to think positively and control my flesh. It is imperative that I learn how to sow to the Spirit instead of my flesh. Me, trying to be a godly person by imitating what the scriptures say on the surface is nothing more than me sowing to my flesh. What I continue to reap is corruption in my being.

Not the Fruit of Everlasting Life.

GOD knows that we need help.

What we need is help from an expert who knows exactly how it all operates. What we crave are the changes within us far beyond our finite abilities. We need the Holiness of GOD.

We need the Holy Spirit.

1st Peter 1:14-16 instructs us, “As obedient Children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as HE which hath called you is Holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I AM HOLY.”

In times of duress we all turn to some source of help to stabilize us and help us to move in the right direction with the right frame of mind. Would it not be awesome for me to respond to life out of an abundance of love instead of my unrighteous conditions? What if there was a way to purge my old value system and rewrite it so it responds to GOD as it should. What do you think would happen to the level of my self-esteem if it was being feed and nurtured by the love of GOD? I know that my immediate response to anxiety and stress is GOD. What is yours? What would happen if I found myself in such a secure position in trust with GOD, whereby I could now, freely, embrace the love that GOD has for me? That would begin to change my whole value system which would now strive to GOD for the only matter that could feed that value system that directly nurtures my self-esteem. WOW, now would that not be awesomely satisfying? If my value system has been rewritten and fed by the love of GOD I would know greater contentment. I would know rest and peace in spite of how I feel.

Each of us Children must learn individually for ourselves that it is Spiritually, vital, and imperative that we find our place of secure rest in the finished work of Christ. That basically means that we become so persuaded in the security of our citizenship in the Spiritual Kingdom of GOD that we know beyond a shadow of doubt that there is absolutely no way whatsoever that we could lose our position of sainthood because of our ill performance or committed sin. Now, that is me taking up and putting on my Helmet of Salvation. My salvation is secured for me by that unique, innocent blood of Christ Jesus. GOD is completely satisfied with me because I rest in the fact that GOD is perfectly satisfied with the finished work of Christ Jesus. I can now rest in that finished work and stop struggling to please GOD by my inclinations of perfectionism. My best behavior could never come close to how the perfect behavior of Christ Jesus in righteousness pleased GOD. I am now accredited with that perfect performance of Christ Jesus. I now have as my own, the very righteousness of Christ Jesus. I have now been judicially judged in Christ and pardoned unto that new Life of freedom from Sin. Yes, I will still reap the wages of sin in my flesh, but I will never face a future judgment of GOD that has any power to condemn me to Hell.

Romans 8:1 and 2 tells me “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”

Seeing that GOD has set me free from the law of sin and death, I am no longer under the condemnation of my Sin Nature that demands punishment in Hell. But, I will still suffer the wounding emotional damage of unrighteousness and suffer the wages of sin in my soul. GOD has made provision by HIS Holiness whereby, if I choose, I can begin to experience freedom from those issues through sanctification.

But, I must learn how to embrace such if I want to experience the greater fullness of such in my being. Through inheriting the Kingdom of GOD within, I will discover the liberties that are now mine to enjoy as a fully vested citizen of the Kingdom of heaven.

Do you even have a personal relationship with GOD through Jesus Christ? If you have never made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior, then I invite you to do so right now. Consider the words of this prayer carefully and mean them from your heart. Jesus will do all the rest.

Repeat this prayer: Lord Jesus, I believe in your Name and I know that you died on that cross of Calvary to pay for my sins. I know that I am a sinner who deserves Hell for my lost condition. I ask You to please come and live in my heart and be my Savior. Amen.

I invite to get a copy of WHAT IS SALVATION? I know that if you want to better understand salvation that it can help you in that direction.

It certainly helps to have a Spiritual foundation that you can trust and stand firmly upon in times of duress. We need a firm foundation that we can trust so that we can stand strong upon such as we go through the changes within by that sanctification process.

One of the biggest issues that affect the teaching of the church is confusion. There is a serious confusion in understanding the difference between our heritage of Eternal Life in Heaven; and our position as a fully vested citizen of Heaven with the privilege to now inherit Everlasting Life within our being while we are yet here in this physical existence.

There needs to be a discipleship program that helps newborn baby Christians enter their place of rest in the finished work of Christ Jesus and learn the all new ways of life in the Spirit.

The ways of sanctification needs to be explained in such a way that there is nothing to hinder the Glory of GOD from being manifested in every believer’s life. There is a higher way of the Spirit that can help us change the landscape of our soul and see that higher way of the Spirit. King David knew about that higher Everlasting way of living life that can be experienced as we see the Holiness of GOD changing the old landscape of our soul into a garden of Spiritual Fruitfulness.

It says Psalm 139:23 and 24, “Search me, O GOD, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way Everlasting.”

King David in Psalm 51:10 implored, “Create in me a clean heart, O GOD; and renew a right spirit within me.”

These scriptures should be the prayer of everyone reading these verses.

The new ways of the Spirit can change the damaged conditions in our soul, reclaiming them for higher Spiritual purposes, renewing a right spirit within us. That in essence, is the reason I write this book with the hopes that it will help those who read it find their way to THE ALL NEW WAYS OF LIFE IN THE SPIRIT.

But, how do we address the damaged conditions and reclaim them for Fruitful purposes? I hope that we now understand that this can only happen through sanctification of our heart by Holiness.

There are operating instructions in the Kingdom of heaven called precepts. These are general principles that every Christian should live by. The Kingdom of GOD and the Kingdom of heaven are interchangeable terms that denote the same understandings. If you are a Born again Christian, now being a joint-heir with Christ, as a part of the Kingdom of GOD you have every right to engage in the process of inheriting the benefits of that Kingdom of heaven within your being right where you are. That is inheriting Everlasting Life. That is where that abundant Life is found. This is our pasture. It was an awesome place in my own journey when I finally understood the truth and gained confidence in the fact that my sin has no power to ever touch my future heritage of Eternal Life in Heaven with GOD. It only has the power to affect my ability in intimacy of inheriting my citizenship privileges of Everlasting Life within through that sanctification process.

Jesus said in John 10:9 and 10, “I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have Life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

Everlasting Life is that higher level of living life in this physical world being influenced by the Holiness of GOD. Inheriting the Kingdom of GOD within my being through sanctification is just part of that pasture, of me experiencing the benefits of my citizenship called Everlasting Life. When Jesus died on the cross He secured for me my Eternal Life forever with GOD in that celestial dimension of Eternity. When GOD the Father resurrected Jesus from the grave to a new and Glorified existence He secured for me my right to inherit Everlasting Life within by giving me HIS Holy Spirit to counsel me in that journey to Heaven. By being led by the Holy Spirit I get to experience genuine Kingdom change within your soul by the Holiness of GOD. Genuine spiritual change within the inner man of my soul is only possible because I have the Holy Spirit abiding in me bodily. Learning how to interact with this Spirit of Holiness and experience the manifestation of GOD’s Glory from within me is the most important prospect of my existence here in Earth. This is why every Christian has the right to be presented with this information so that they can make an informed choice. I want to tell every Born again Christian about the fact that their time here in Earth is of far more value than they may previously have realized. This understanding of that higher Life and how to experience such is exactly what the enemy has been stealing from us by keeping us bound up in error and confusion.

Because I am now Born again I get to choose whether I want agree or disagree with Holiness. All of us are professionals by our Sin Nature at disagreeing with Holiness. By the very nature of the damage in our soul we are pushed, pressured, and compelled towards more and greater sin. This is why a criminal cannot help themselves but see destruction and criminal acts come out of their soul. But this does not haft to be the end for anyone who is criminal. I am living proof of that. You can experience a genuinely changed life. It is never too late as long as I have breath in my body and my soul is craving such. I can become pro-active and pursue GOD with every fiber of my being. I am telling you that you can be single-minded again instead of double-minded. If you have ever wondered why you are the way you are and why you cannot help yourself but to do the things you do; your answer is found in the Book of James. There is not only hope for everyone, but a sure answer from GOD to whoever is Born again and wants to experience what it is like to become a whole new man in our heart and mind. There are several ways to progressively heal of the damage in our soul. We can become more and more free from the emotional distress that the wages of sin demand.

First, James, the half-brother of Jesus said in James 1:5-8, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of GOD, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in Faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

When I become persuaded in my citizenship, it helped me begin changing from a double minded man into a man that was confident and moving in the direction of becoming more focused. But I was not yet, single minded.

But wait, later in James 4:8-10 it instructs me to, “Draw nigh to GOD, and HE will draw high to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and HE shall lift you up.”

This is essentially saying to stop trusting in the things of the world to give you value. Your feelings and how you are emotionally reacting is not Kingdom based. This was why I was yet, still, a double-minded man. I had not learned how to surrender and submit myself to the rewriting ability of the sanctification of my inner man by the Holiness of GOD.

As I become more and more, confident in my citizenship, I could now trust GOD more and more. I slowly became more proactive about the sanctification of my being, as I humbled myself before the only ONE who has the ability clean and clear out the old conditions of pollution and unrighteousness in my soul. Whereby, my mindscape is changing, becoming more conducive to Fruitfulness and its corresponding holy behavior of righteousness towards others in love.

Now, I can respond to life in constructive ways instead of reacting out of my pain in selfish and destructive ways. I humble myself before GOD by giving up my old ways of trying to do things by my own prideful abilities. I am not saying that everything is this world is evil, but, I do know that its original purpose has been corrupted, and the enemy will try to use such for his agenda of binding and blinding my mind to the purposes of GOD for my life. Nothing in all of this physical existence like food, clothes, or icons has any ability to promote Holiness in me. Only the Holiness of GOD can quicken my inner man unto cleansed, healed, and wholesome conditions that are conducive to Fruitfulness. I know that only GOD can make those genuine changes in me by HIS Holiness. As I interact with GOD, HE rewrites who I am from the inside out, becoming the only source that can now satisfy my value system and build up my self-esteem. I am now, even more single-minded, dedicated to HIS purposes and I am becoming a new man genuinely by the power of the Holy Spirit, every day as I keep my focus on my Lord.

I no longer live to satisfy my selfishness, but now I live for GOD.

Every Christian needs to learn how to clean their yard and sweep out their house of the clutter and trash that is polluting the mind. Being proactive about my soul hygiene frees me from those hindering factors of pollution; and goes to work cleaning up the landscape of my mind for the higher purposes of the Holy Spirit shepherding Holiness to address the ill, underlying soil conditions. Until now those old, ill soil conditions were only good for growing weeds, briars, and thistles.

GOD gave the Hebrew children the Laws and commandments to help them draw a more precise line between exactly what was right behavior and what was wrong and harmful behavior. HE did this for their own good, for the harmony of relations, and so that they would not keep wounding themselves unto greater and greater unrighteousness in their soul. But, yet, the Law was an outside, physical element that the practitioners has to make a conscious decision to obey within their own limited ability. It could become a habit of their lifestyle choice but it could never satisfy the wrath that GOD had against their inherited Sin Nature. In other words, they could appear to be a whitewashed sepulcher, but inside there was a putrefying, rotting corpse stinking up and fuming nauseous gases, that was blinding them from being able to see and perceive with Spiritual clarity the truth of the Kingdom of GOD. We all are full of gapping wounds of iniquity, trespass, and bending traumas that are infected, rotting, oozing, and producing nauseous gases and causing expressions of our emotional pain that is our anger. How we process those conditions and express our anger has everything to do with our conscience and how it has been trained by the corrupt, incurred programing of life itself upon our temperaments.

They were Practicing the Law, with their conscious mind, trying to force their flawed, corrupt, and damaged inner mind to produce righteous behavior in spite of those ill conditions of wounded-ness in their soul. Are we not trying to do the very same thing even though we are no longer under the taskmaster of that Old Testament Law?

Romans 6:14 says to us, “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the Law, but under Grace.”

While under the demands and dictates of the Law they never knew the satisfaction of accomplishment. Only by Faith can we even begin to comprehend what Grace is about. Grace has everything to do with the fact that Christ has paid the full measure for every sin that I would ever commit in the whole of my life, and I, having been justified unto that initial position of Sanctified Sainthood, do now stand in Grace with GOD all the way to Heaven. That sanctification process within me by Holiness is me, pro-actively employing and putting to work my possession of salvation from the inside out. When GOD looks at me HE views my position in Sainthood and chooses not to look upon my inner condition because HE has already accredited me with my Glorification as I stand in Grace. The Hebrews who were outside of faith, were not able to achieve that merit of achievement by their performance of the letter of the Law. It was a heaviness of bondage to the fear that if they did not keep by performance the demands of the Law, the answer would be punishment. So many Christians still serve GOD out of fear in that same bondage instead of the devotion of the liberties of their real freedom. Were the Jews not practicing Perfectionism? And, yet, because of their pride, they were embarrassed to admit this real truth of the fear of their bondage to others who were likely experiencing the same dilemma themselves. This is how they came to develop the traditions that Jesus witnessed when He came onto the scene of history. Because of the fact that no matter how well they were able keep the Law by their own efforts, they did not experience the Manifested Glory of GOD that would have witnessed and testified that they were successful in their obedience. So, in place of the significant Glory of GOD, we now see that they slowly developed those old above and beyond requirements that were meant to tell others outside, that they had somehow accomplished inside that positional status of merit. But, unlike us, they had to keep up their efforts by performance for the rest of their life. Jesus accomplished everything once for us to stand in Grace with GOD, all at one time in His passion. They did not have a sanctified value system that only looks to GOD as the only source that could feed, nourish, and satisfy the longing of their heart. For a greater majority, they did not understand what faith was about. But because I am Born again, by Faith I stand in Grace with GOD. And that declares my freedom and that there does not remain even one thing that I am required to do afterwards in order to own Heaven as my home when I leave this physical dimension for that celestial Eternal dimension.

They could not help themselves because of their insecure fear, but to continue on trying to do this alone, by their own demanding means of perfectionism, because of their own inadequacies, and the need of the admiration of others to feed their bankrupt value system and inflate their self-esteem egos. In other words, they wanted the glory that came from the admiration of others for their lofty positions of esteem in the eyes of man. We, who are the Born again, have been delivered that perfect merit of achievement through the finished work of Christ Jesus. Now, by faith, we have become the justified who by Faith, stand in Grace in peace with GOD. Because we stand in Grace with GOD, we are safe and secure to now learn how to rejoice in Holiness with the prospect of manifesting the Glory of GOD within and without. But, we must learn how to strive for that goal of entering into that place of rest in the finished work of Christ as we stand in that perfected Grace with GOD. This is where that satisfaction that they could never know by their performance is found. Once we have found our place of rest, we are free from that bondage to fear under those old laws of performance and free to begin learning how to abide in the peace of the Vine itself unto fruitful conditions. This is what Jesus was trying to show us in The Book of John chapters 14 and 15. Chapter 14 and 15 is a much more intimate understanding of the parable of The Sower and the Seed located in Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

It is much more difficult to discipline our sinfulness when our mindscape is crowded with bombed out craters from all of trespasses, iniquities, and traumas of life. When we look at the example of the parable of The Sower and the Seed located in Matthew 13:1-23, we see that Jesus is endeavoring to explain the ill conditions of pollution and unrighteousness that is going to need to be addressed before the landscape of the soul is quickened unto conditions that are conducive to Fruitfulness.

Of course, this parable is so important that it is actually recorded almost word for word again in Mark 4:1-20 and in Luke 8:4-15.

Before we can address the wounded conditions in our soul, it is best for us to concentrate upon the general housecleaning that we need be doing every day for the purpose of our soul hygiene. For sure, the Holy Spirit can see and deal with those wounded conditions through prayer, but we will still continue be hindered by our pollutions. As we are pro-active about the pollutions, the underlying will become less formidable and far easier to facilitate.

There is the rocky ground in our mindscape that only the Holy Spirit has the capability to clear out. Those wounds in our soul are not only causing our emotional issues but they are the major cause of dysfunction in our relations with GOD and man.

By their very nature, they propagate and are the very reason we make bad decisions, in how we respond to life, that affects us so negatively; and causes us to infect the lives of others.

As we proactively move forward in our relationship with GOD, it cannot help but facilitate a more righteous affect in our relationship with others. Sin wounds, and damages, and leaves destruction in its wake. All of creation operates and functions by laws of action and reaction that could be better termed as ordinances. GOD has put everything in its place and ordered its actions and reactions. If we align ourselves with these Laws and commandments and ordinances we can expect less disagreement with GOD; and man. If we disobey such we become lawless; and basically, criminal in practice towards GOD, first; and then, man.

Laws are meant for those who are inclined towards unrighteous iniquities, and trespasses towards others.

Precepts are more in line with general operating instructions on how the Kingdom of heaven operates for our benefit.

Statutes are even more specific and bring a sharper focus on how to interact with the Holiness of GOD, and experience greater alignment in agreement with the Holy Spirit and the overall Kingdom of GOD.

This is how our faith grows and moves towards greater agreement with the Truth of Doctrine. Doctrine is Holy Spirit revealed Truth about the Spiritual Kingdom of GOD.

Conviction is the Holy Spirit giving us personal direction concerning anything destructive in relation to where we are at in intimacy with Holiness. A personal conviction addresses anything that is hindering our Spiritual sanctification, our progress, growth, or prosperity; or our relations with others.

And so, to review: Laws, commandments, and ordinances are general and overall in nature and can give a clear delineation between correct and incorrect operations and behaviors. These start us moving in the right direction of order in the Kingdom and in agreement with general cleanliness.

I have convictions that some would not consider in their own understanding to be sin, but the Holy Spirit has given them to me so that there can be a finer tuning in harmony with Holiness and righteous behavior. The ministry that I have been called to is the office of preaching and teaching, and I must be careful not to teach my convictions as applying to other Christians like precepts and statutes do. So what I do is concentrate on the general understanding of the Kingdom that applies to every one of GOD’s Children when I am teaching. There are at least four principles of Holiness that we can actively engage in. These categories are all basically nothing new, but our understanding of how to interact with them needs to be explained in depth. While I do not know all, I will explain what I do have to share.

One of the simplest ways for a citizen of heaven to experience the taking out of the clutter and trash we gather in our soul is by reading the Word of GOD. The majority who read The Word of GOD only see what is written on the physical surface, and because they encounter difficulty understanding what they are reading they get discouraged and sometimes, they give up. Or they turn to a version or paraphrase that they find easier to read and understand what is written on the physical surface. This inability to understand is normal to all Christians who are not being pro-active in their sanctification. What is of the utmost importance is that the Holy Spirit has perfect understanding of the whole Word of GOD.

When a person first invites Jesus to come into their heart as Savior, they are instantly judicially justified (pardoned to a justified position and made as though they never HAVE sinned and never WILL sin EVER AGAIN) and positionally, translated out of that cursed lineage of Adam (with it penalty of sin in Hell) and moved, as the redeemed, into now BEING a Sanctifed citizen of Heaven in the blessed family lineage of GOD their Father. Now, for a citizen who is no longer of this world, everything in this world now functions for our benefit. It may not seem like it, but now everything in our life has purpose. As a fully vested citizen of the Kingdom of GOD, our name has already been recorded in The Lamb’s Book of Life, which is the rolls of the citizens of Heaven. Our destiny is now the marriage Supper of the Lamb (Christ Jesus) and we are become His Bride (all who are Born again) whereby we are made by GOD to be wise virgins in sealed integrity.

Every Born again Christian has already been immediately accredited with the end result of their Glorification, whereby, that indwelling Holy Spirit is going to purge them of all corruption, making them Spiritual perfect, to now enter into that Eternal dimension of the celestial of Eternity; in Triumph over that old Sin Nature and in Victory over its penalty of death in Hell. This is what is called our positional Sanctification. All Born again Christians have immediately been delivered into this positional Sanctification of citizenship, right here, right now, long before they ever actually do enter Heaven. This is all a done deal accomplished by the finished work of Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:19 tells us, “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the Saints, and of the household of GOD.”

The great pity is that the majority of truly Born again Christians will not come into this understanding of who and what they really are: and so, much like the son who stayed at home with his father while the prodigal son wasted his portion of the inheritance; they may never learn how to embrace and enjoy all that they have access to. They will not become persuaded and confident in their citizenship and therefore, they will not learn how to inherit the Kingdom of GOD within their human being and become a vital, active part of The Body of Christ. Every one of us must first engage in the ministry of the reconciliation of our being to The Word of Reconciliation.

For those who become persuaded in their citizenship in The Kingdom of GOD, the door opens for them to now begin to learn how to go in and out of that door and find the enjoyment of their pasture. Pasture is everything that belongs to a Born again citizen of the Kingdom of GOD. For a citizen of the Kingdom of GOD, the scriptures are not some hard to understand roadblock they are tripped up by. The reason that we have difficulty with the scriptures is because we are supposed to have difficulty with the scriptures so we will then turn to the indwelling Holy Spirit for help. The Kingdom factual point is that they Holy Spirit inspired man to write the scriptures in the first place. Second and interdependent upon this first fact, is that in our relationship, only the Holy Spirit can give us enlightenment, the truth of Doctrine, and the engrafted word integrated into our understanding. Oh, sure, we can hear from someone else, and within, the Holy Spirit can make that identifying connection between that spoken truth and what has already been wrote upon the tables of our heart, but it is still the Holy Spirit who is in control. This same identifying connection happens to all Born again Christians. How many times have you heard or read something for the first time, but deep inside, comes out this thought that somehow you think that you already knew that new information, even though you know that you have never encountered that information before? Or how many times have you read the very same scriptures, only this time that scriptures seems to leap off of the page in your understanding? That is the Holy Spirit making that Spiritual connection between what was already written on the tables of your heart when you first became one of The Born again and the Truth what you have just encountered. There are so many different identifying incidents that happen to a believer that witness to the fact that they have entered into a blood covenant with GOD when they invited Jesus into their heart as Savoir. Remember how that I said earlier that when you have that thought of doubting your Salvation, that, that incident is actually evident that even the enemy knows that you are a Born again citizen of Heaven. Only those who are a Born again Christian can experience that incident of doubt. Only someone who is saved can have that thought of doubting their Salvation.

For a Born again Christian every single word in the Bible has spiritual value and all should be respected because within its structure is Spiritual matter that our finite mind cannot determine; with different capabilities to sanctify our soul of the pollution that is interfering and hindering our Spiritual potential. There are definite ways to utilize that power of that Kingdom strength cleanser to dislodge and clean the much weaker junk of this physical world out of our being. The Word cleanses not just our soul but can work its way throughout, sanctifying our whole being. The Word of GOD is an agent of the Holiness of GOD. There is far more to the scriptures in The Word of GOD below the surface of the physical wording that only the Holy Spirit can discern and reveal to us. Since we have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us bodily, He can give us insight and enlightenment, illuminating until we grow strong enough in Spiritual intuition to begin to be able to discern some of those deeper Kingdom matters for ourselves.

GOD is the only ONE capable of cleansing the ill conditions in our soul, while building our house of Doctrine. As we expose our soul to the scriptures we experience sanctification as this Kingdom strength Everlasting cleanser meets the weaker junk of this temporal physical existence. As we practice interacting with this Kingdom strength Word of GOD we are inviting the Holiness of GOD to do what only it can do within us. And we give the Holy Spirit the materials He needs to build us up a Spiritual house in which we store up our treasures new and old. We have these treasures in order to share with others.

This is elemental and there is so much more that I will expound upon later.

Laws are meant for the disobedient.

Precepts, statutes, and convictions are for the justified saints, who as citizens, are accredited with that Righteousness of GOD that exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees. The sanctification process is intended for the Holy Spirit to bring our inner man into agreement with our delivered position of sainthood imputed to each of us by GOD the Father. This positional sainthood is clearly declared to everyone in that dimension of the celestial Eternity by the Fact that GOD the Father has given to every one of HIS Children a significant Spiritual Robe of Righteousness we wear at all times, even when we sleep.

Isaiah 61:10 informs and should encourage each of us who are the Born again, “I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my GOD; for HE hath clothed me with the garments of Salvation, HE hath covered me with the Robe of Righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.”

Our Spiritual enemies know for a fact exactly who is the found: being Born again; and who is the lost, being dead inside that spiritual vacuum of their soul.

We are in a declared warfare with those enemies of GOD and our Spiritual position is evident to them and this is exactly how they know in whom they can seed that thought of doubting their salvation.

This is why we need to learn how to use our Spiritual armor. Again, doubting our salvation is actually evidence that the enemy knows that we are Born again and citizens of Heaven. When we first become the Born again, we are judicially justified unto being delivered to that Sanctified position of sainthood and clothed in a Spiritual wedding garment of salvation that identifies us to everyone in that spiritual dimension. But, we still carry the pollutions and our old baggage into this new position of the redeemed. GOD wants us to seek HIM out for the very office of responsibility that only GOD is capable of carrying out. We desperately need what only GOD can supply. So many of us have been confused and searching in this physical world, while settling for the counterfeit vane imitations that will never satisfy the longing of our soul. We strive for happiness when all the time what we are really hungry for can only be found in intimate relation with GOD. This is why HE gave us HIS Holy Spirit to be in us every second of our sojourn here till we come into the reality of our citizenship there in Heaven. When we do come into that reality many Children will look back and know that they were rooked by the deception of that enemy, out of walking here as a joint-heir with Christ in the full-ness of its pasture. This is the tactics of our enemy to keep us double-minded, uncertain, off-balance and wavering in confusion. When a Child of GOD begins to be persuaded in their citizenship with its rights and privileges they start becoming a threat to the enemy and that darkness of confusion. If a Child becomes confident as an Ambassador they represent their Kingdom well in all they are, think, say, and do.

The world in the first century was a much different environment and society that what we experience today. Today is a different situation than what the early Christian saints experienced. After the resurrection of Christ Jesus the Holy Spirit was given to all Born again believers but they did not have the canonized New Testament scriptures we have access to today. Because they did not have the scriptures we have today (which they, themselves penned by inspiration of the Holy Spirit) they were DELIVERED a level of Sanctified purging and a Level of FAITH that they did not gain by contending with the Holiness of GOD in a sanctification process. In other words, they were delivered instantly the end product of which we are told to contend with Holiness for. GOD knew very well what they were going to face and experience as they established the early Church. This is how they were able to endure the horrible persecutions that they suffered with the persuaded confidence of that level of Sanctified single-mindedness and that Level of enlightened FAITH. But, for them, it was possible that through their actions they could lose that delivered enlightened FAITH (fall away) and know only the common Faith of salvation that we today are very familiar with. Several places in the scriptures Peter and the writer of Hebrews and the Apostle Jude speak of this falling away from that delivered enlightened straight and narrow Level of FAITH down to that more common broad and wide entry level of Faith we know today. That situation of falling away in no way means that their Spiritual citizenship or their position as Saints disappeared, changed, or was diminished in any form. Their citizenship in the celestial of Heaven was not affected at all. Because this understanding is not commonly taught in the church today, many Christians get discouraged because they are not experiencing innately that same Level of Sanctified FAITH that was at one time delivered to the early saints for the founding of the church. The reason they were delivered this higher Level of instant soul sanctification and its corresponding FAITH is because they did not have the canonized Word of GOD to help them like we do today.

There were several ways for a saint to lose that Level of delivered FAITH. The one that I see clearly is through trampling underfoot the Grace that The Lamb of GOD accomplished for us as the only sacrifice GOD would accept that had the power to wash away the wrath of our Sin Nature. In that time the Temple in Jerusalem was still active even though their blood sacrifices were now null and void in the ability to dissuade guilt. Should a Jewish Born again Christian go back into the Temple and engage in those Old Testament practices of the animal blood sacrifices they would be trampling underfoot all the works of Christ Jesus to secure our Grace with GOD. If a Born again Christian should lose that delivered Level of enlightened FAITH, they would fall away back down to that common level of Faith that a modern day Christian experiences when they first enter into their covenant with GOD. This falling away because of succumbing to the pressures of persecution would in no way affect that Born again Christian’s citizenship, but they would be stripped of that delivered Level of FAITH with its enlightenment in understanding and its Spiritual clarity to comprehend the Kingdom of GOD. They would know the confusion that Christians know today.

Such an instance of falling away is referred by the Apostle Peter in 2nd Peter 2:20-22 where it explains, “For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.”

Yes, I know that many would see this as describing what referred to as backsliding. So what I am about to say is going to rankle some legalistic believers. For a Born again Christian, if we choose to sin we will pay the wages of that sin in several ways within our being and out into our life, but the very Spirit that Christ Jesus birthed, effectively filling that once, dead and empty spiritual vacuum within us cannot be affected by our sin because we are now in a blood covenant with GOD. In Adam case, sin did not even exist in our cosmos until the enemy usurped his authority and Adam introduced the Sin Nature upon his progeny. Adam’s spirit was under the law of sin and death even before he sinned. When he sinned, that image of the spirit within him, being a mere reflection of the Glory of GOD died. And Adam passed that death onto every one of his seed to walk in the meagerness of their Sin Natured flesh and tainted blood ever after. But when a lost seed of Adam, who is under the condemnation of that Sin Nature comes by faith and invests that measure of faith by trusting in the name of Jesus and invites Jesus to be their Savior, that brand new Spirit of Christ that is birthed within their being is imperishable not being born of corruptible like Adam but incorruptible of GOD.

1st Peter 1:23 states, “Being Born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of GOD, which liveth and abideth for ever.”

A Christian will suffer the wages of sin and its death of unrighteousness within their soul, but the Spirit of Christ within is not touched and will never experience death. So I will say this, that once a flesh and blood human being comes to Jesus for salvation, they are now a Born again Spirit and citizen of Heaven, who may one day die in their body because it is under the law of sin and death, our Spirit lives forever with GOD it has been set free from the law of sin and its death.

Romans 8:1 and 2 tells us, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are IN Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the Law of the Spirit of Life hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”

So, we can conclude that a lost person is walking in the meagerness of their cursed flesh, but a Born again Christian will after the Spirit ever after. So we can see that after Christ is birthed in us, we will live for all Eternity with GOD. To guarantee this Eternal blood covenant, GOD has given us HIS OWN EARNEST, which is that indwelling Holy Spirit. That is now a done deal and my responsibility is to learn how to walk according to the Holy Spirit of Everlasting Life. If we choose to walk according to that Holy Spirit who guides us in that process of inheriting Everlasting Life within, we are quickened and changed within and ever so slowly move away from the dictates of our old unrighteousness unto manifesting righteous conditions that are now conducive to producing the Fruit of the Spirit. But, for a brief period of time, the early Saints were delivered a very precious blessing of being instantly transformed and given that higher, elevated enlightened gift, even so we must see that there were much deeper repercussions for an early Saint, should they fall away than there is today, for a last days Saint, should they fall away. We know that we do not deserve mercy and yet, GOD is magnanimous and gives freely mercy and healing and restoration to anyone who asks. But, in their case, it was impossible for them to be restored to that elevated, enlightened, delivered level of straightened and narrowed FAITH. This is demonstrated in more detail by the writer of Hebrews.

When an early Christian who had been delivered from their pollutions, and their previous conditions of unrighteousness, having tasted of the heavenly gift; should they fall away from that delivered elevated, Level of FAITH that was once delivered to the saints, it was impossible for them to repent of their error and be delivered back up to that once elevated Level of FAITH again. But of even great importance, it was also impossible for them to lose their citizenship position as the Born again, or its wedding garment of salvation.

Whereas, before, when they had instantly been delivered of the pollutions (conditions of unrighteousness with its wounds of committed iniquity, trespasses from others, and those traumas of life) in their being, now, they had the same need that we now have, to learn the all new ways of Everlasting Life in the Spirit for the healing of the new wounds they had immediately began incurring after that initial deliverance experience.

Now I am very well aware that some denominations use these very scriptures in Peter and Hebrews to erroneously teach that it is possible for a Born again Christian to somehow lose their salvation should they decide to leave off the assembling with other Christians and live in the mire of carnality. This legalism is exactly the lie that the enemies of GOD want, (with all of its false guilt and condemnation) so that they can cause guilt, shame, fear, and confusion in the mind of those who do not know how to get their own understanding of the scriptures first-hand from direct intimacy with the Holy Spirit. They are out to steal any hope. They want to keep every Christian beat down and in pain. They will do anything within their power to keep a Christian from discovering their true Spiritual potential. We are free indeed to choose a life under fear or become persuaded, now living in devotion to GOD. Legalism teaches fear, while Truth sets us free to express devotion to GOD for HIS magnanimous Divine Nature to us.

When a Christian is getting their understanding directly from the Holy Spirit it makes it harder for the enemy to deceive them.

As I have said before, anytime you teach a new understanding to those who are uninitiated to that specific Kingdom of GOD truth, it is best to have at the least a second instance of that Truth from the scriptures. The writer of The Letter to the Hebrews records just such an understanding of this falling away from that delivered elevated, enlightened Level of FAITH.

And since this is a new understanding I will clear away any error that might still remain concerning this very important Kingdom understanding. And so, let us look at how the writer of the Letter to the Hebrews explained this falling away from that enlightened FAITH that was once (or at one time in history), delivered to the early Saints.

Hebrews 6:4-6 tells us, “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good Word of GOD, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of GOD afresh, and put Him to an open shame.”

Now to bring forth a documentation of historical significance, the Letter to the Hebrews was written after the resurrection of Christ had occurred around 33 A.D. and before the destruction of the Jewish Temple located in Jerusalem in 70 A.D. After the Romans destroyed the Jewish Temple in 70 A.D., this very type of falling away by a Jewish Born Again Christian was virtually eliminated. At some time between this recording in Hebrews and the instructions of Jude, this type of FAITH and state of being was stopped; or this type of falling away was eliminated completely. While we may not know everything about this situation, we do know that Jude, the brother of James, who was the half-brother of Jesus Christ, wrote in the Letter of Jude, which is said to have penned somewhere around the year 75 A.D., that he was already seeing this situation and instructing new believers who were now experiencing the common Faith, that we should earnestly contend for the FAITH that was at one time delivered to the Saints. So we can see that this type of falling away from that instant sanctification of those old wounded pollutions in the soul and that corresponding level of unearned FAITH with it Kingdom level of enlightenment was becoming a recognized fact. It was being recognized by Jude that that level of Everlasting Life with its FAITH was no longer just being delivered to a new born Christian anymore.

In the Book of Jude 1:3, Jude writes, “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the FAITH which was once delivered unto the Saints.”

Now, what we have experienced when we first became one of the Born again is the common salvation that Jude speaks. Even though this is so, I want to expose to your understanding a Spiritual truth that should help you understand the difference between this previous delivered Level of the FAITH that was once delivered to the saints and an experience that is now delivered to every Child of GOD when they first invite Jesus into their hearts as Savior. In truth, a baby Christian is delivered a portion of their inheritance of Everlasting Life with its perishable Fruit, and like the Prodigal son, it was given to them by The Father. When anyone becomes a Born again Christian, they are given a measured portion of their inheritance of Everlasting Life that is meant to exemplify a taste of the Spiritual potential of what they could possible experience on a more continual basis through the sanctification process. This delivered portion of that inheritance of Everlasting Life is why a new born Christian is so full of zeal and wants to let everybody know what has happened to them. For a brief timespan they know an elevated level of love and because of that compassion, they feel like they can save everyone they come in contact with. But alas, as has so far always been the case, for any new born baby Christian, since they have not been appropriately taught what exactly has happened, or how to make the needed intimate connection with their source of Holiness so that by learning how to abide in the Vine they can pro-actively contend for the same and gain more: they instead fall away from that delivered portion of their inheritance of Everlasting Life. And so, they slowly dwindle and dry up of that portion of their inheritance that they were given by their Heavenly Father. And they fall back down to the common level of Faith, being now dried up inside of that flow of living waters and they slowly settle into the mediocrity of unenlightened Christianity we see today.

For the majority of my life I could not shake the feeling that something was missing.

I know for myself, that I felt like I was experiencing so much less than the early Christians in my own Christian walk, which caused me to have a great lack of confidence in my Salvation. I kept thinking and asking, “Why am I not experiencing that same level of the Spirit that they appeared to have innately?” What is wrong with me? Why is it so hard for me, while they seemed to come by such a high enlightenment in understanding the Kingdom of GOD with no effort at all? Now I see and understand that through their disobedience, having fallen away from that esteemed Level of FAITH, they had to gropingly feel their way, learning through interaction with the Holy Spirit how to engage in the sanctification process of that lessor Faith of the common salvation that we, even now, have difficulty with because we are not be getting our enlightenment of the scriptures first-hand directly from intimate interaction with the Holy Spirit.

For the majority of Christianity, what information we do think that we have we probably got by listening to someone else whom we considered to be knowledgeable or by reading about it somewhere in the writings of someone we trusted to know what they were writing about. But just the same, that information was at best second-hand information that we have trusted to be factual and true. When we try to incorporate this information into our understanding, if it is error then it will cause confusion, as opposed to how Kingdom Truth gives us harmony within our Doctrine. Since the Truth makes us free, then any type of error binds us up and works towards blinding from Truth.

The New Testament scriptures hold all of the understanding we would need of Kingdom Truth. And every Born again Christian has had the Kingdom written upon the tables of their heart, only they do not understand how the pro-actively access that Kingdom information. That Kingdom information can only be enlightened to our understanding first-hand as we walk in intimacy with the Holy Spirit. Whether they have realized it or not, every Child of GOD has experienced brief instances of illumination of those understandings of the Kingdom of GOD; that were recorded upon the tables of their soul the very moment they entered into their covenant with GOD.

I know for myself, that I felt like I was experiencing so much less than the early Christians in my own Christian walk to the point that I had no confidence in my Salvation. I kept feeling like, “Why am I not experiencing that same level of the Spirit that they appeared to have innately?” What is wrong with me? Why is it so hard for me, while they seemed to come by such a high enlightenment in understanding the Kingdom of GOD with no effort at all? Like I said earlier, the enemy is out to steal from us our Spiritual potential, kill off our joy of living, and destroy our walk of Faith unto FAITH.

This lack of understanding of the Kingdom of GOD caused me a great deal of confusion, especially concerning my faith in my salvation.

This situation served to exacerbate all of the previous conditions in my soul that had been actuated by horrible incidents that I experienced while I was in the military that were outside of the realm of normal human experiences that resulted in depression on a level that I would not wish upon anyone. I now know that as human beings, we cannot help but tend to think that we are the only one who has ever experienced what we have experienced or ever felt the way we have felt. Knowing of this in no way diminishes the impact depression can have in our life and how it affects those we love. In fact, I ended up losing my best friend because of that depression. I lost my job and my family because of that depression. Now my ministry is to help every Christian find their Spiritual potential in their journey to Heaven

Now, I see and understand that for a 1st century Saint, through their disobedience, having fallen away from that esteemed level of FAITH, they had to gropingly feel their way, learning through interaction with the Holy Spirit how to engage in the common sanctification process of that lessor Faith of the common salvation that we, even now, have difficulty with because we may not be getting our enlightenment of the scriptures first-hand directly from intimate interaction with the Holy Spirit.

The Word of GOD holds all of the understanding of Kingdom Truth we need to help us in our journey to Heaven. And every Born again Christian has had the Kingdom written upon the tables of their heart, only they do not understand how the pro-actively access that Kingdom information. That Kingdom information can only be enlightened to our understanding first-hand as we walk in intimacy with the Holy Spirit. Whether they have realized it or not, every Child of GOD has experienced brief instances of illumination of those understandings of the Kingdom of GOD; that were recorded upon the tables of their soul the very moment they first entered into their covenant with GOD.

Because the disobedient are not Born again and do not have the indwelling Holy Spirit, they can only comprehend the storyline of the scriptures, and encounter knowledge between right and wrong along with personal conviction from the Holy Spirit towards their need of salvation; but it cannot manifest true sanctification within their soul because they do not have the indwelling Holy Spirit. GOD has provided to us several ways to interact with HIS Holiness. I want to discuss some of the all new ways of the Kingdom of GOD. Every Christian must learn THE ALL NEW WAYS OF LIVING LIFE IN THE SPIRIT.

If we adhere to them we can know that we are positively moving in the right direction of sanctification and can expect all kinds of immediate results. We think that a backslidden Christian is one who was at one time assembling and trying to be a good person in order to please GOD. I can see clearly, now, that even while I was doing all of those good things in the church; compared to that initial portion of my Everlasting Life given to me when I first became a new-born Christian: all of that time I was what the church calls, a backslid Christian. Now I know different. For every Born again Christian is a Saint and a fully vested citizen of Heaven and the only difference is that we all are just experiencing the varying degrees of sanctification process in our lives. We all are living in varying degrees of carnality that is lusting against the Spirit and by sanctification, the Holy Spirit is lust against our carnality. So, is there really a such thing as a backslid Christian? Or are there Born again Christians who are living in varying degrees between unrighteousness in their fleash and the righteousness of the Spirit? I know that when we repent of our desires to sin that GOD picks us up right where we are at. HE does not judge us for our past but invites us to learn how to walk in intimacy with the Holy Spirit and inherit the benefits of what it means to be a citizen of Heaven. And that is why I want to show you what I have learned so far about the principles of the Kingdom of heaven that we, as a Born again Christian, can begin interacting with the Holiness of GOD and experience how the Spirit can fight effectively against and quicken our carnality unto righteous conditions within our inner man that are conducive to Spiritual Fruitfulness. When we engage in any of these principles we are basically interacting with the Holiness of GOD. We can expect to experience sanctification and greater inclinations towards alignment and agreement with the Holy Spirit.

The Sanctification Process heals our inner corrupt conditions of destruction helping us move in the opposite direction of unrighteousness in our thoughts, decisions, and actions. As those ill conditions are quickened by the Holy Spirit, we cannot help but experience the difference. Sanctification changes the mindscape and helps us make better responses to life as it happens in the pressure of the moment. Instead of reacting all the time, we free ourselves to make better responses out of better conditions. Each one of us gets to decide for ourselves exactly how much of that sanctification we are willing to surrender our mindscape to the dedicated purposes of Fruitfulness of the Spirit. This is the real secret to walking in the Everlasting Life that we all had a taste of as new-born Christians. The best concept is that each of us gets to choose how much of the Kingdom we want to experience. We all get to decide exactly how much of GOD we want. We can have as much as we are willing to dedicate ourselves to. We get to enjoy as much of the magnanimous love of GOD as we want. Sadly, most individuals choose just enough to make them feel just a little bit better about their present situation in the moment. But for a dedicated Christian who craves this newness of Life, the only limitations are our decisions. Feelings come out of our emotions which are a bad indicator and will sometimes lie and deceive us into thinking wrongly. But, to those who persevere are given the ways to overcome in life by the Spirit unto Life Everlasting.

Choosing to commit sin is the opposite direction of Holiness and moves us farther away from the sanctification process of wholeness in our soul. Choosing to commit sin contributes to the destructive conditions in our soul. By operating in precepts and statutes we get the opportunity to be proactive about those conditions and become better able to hear the Holy Spirit and distinguish with greater Spiritual clarity exactly what the scriptures have to impart to our condition and understanding. Because a Born again Christian has the indwelling Holy Spirit, they are walking in the Spirit no matter where they may be in their sanctification. But are we actually walking according to the Spirit?

As we walk in life according to the Spirit we should be building a Spiritual house. The Holy Spirit is both the architect and the builder. HE is the only way by which you can live the Christian life that is Fruitful.

You can trust that HE knows exactly what HE is doing, when HE is doing, and why HE is doing it.

Sanctification and Spiritual maturity as we respond to and process life are both part of inheriting the Kingdom of GOD within. As we walk according to the Spirit of Life and face life accordingly we experience Spiritual maturity that changes us even more as we begin exemplify the Character of Christ. This is a very privileged situation. Not to be critical but few understand this because few experience this. Those who have experienced a taste of this know that it only because GOD been more than gracious. The more we are led by the Holy Spirit in that sanctification process, the more we are enabled to process life in the pressure of the moment by better decisions.

Everything in my life is a training tool to evaluate where I am at in my Spiritual maturity. If I respond appropriately out of what I have already gained in experience I grow stronger and wiser and better equipped to face the more challenging circumstances and situations that are to come. If I do not comprehend the lesson and I do not respond or process the situation appropriately then I am liable to either continue facing similar circumstances until I do comprehend and successfully overcome. But I do this with GOD’s help and influence if I am wise. Either way there is a lesson to be learned, so I can trust in the fact that nothing happens to me by accident. There is a purpose whether I can see it or not. When we get to that place in our relationship with GOD where we really comprehend this we are moving up the ladder spoken of in the beatitudes. Eventually we will slowly become a peacemaker in the Kingdom of heaven. This is just one more reason why GOD gave us HIS indwelling Holy Spirit. I remember a moment in time, when I was very discouraged because I had no way of judging for myself where I was in my Spiritual maturity. GOD was so merciful to me even though I was discouraged. Then I listened to a man in my church as he was speaking on the beatitudes; and when he got to the peacemakers, the Holy Spirit said to me, James that is you and where you are in maturity. This does not mean that my growth is a permanent position. It can wither and dry up if I do not guard and protect what I put forth so much effort to contend for. It would be hard for me to explain how encouraging it was to me in my own journey when I was given that word of confirmation from the Holy Spirit. A Christian must understand, and even more live the Truth of these next scriptures. Growing up I heard many sermons that were misleading. What happens if I repeat those errors to someone else? I am determined within myself from this moment on, to leave nothing else but a legacy of Spiritual truth as the fruits meet of my repentance. The Truth of the Kingdom does not condemn. It sets free. We need freedom and then conviction but we do not need condemnation. GOD desires with all of HIS being for us to be free to embrace and enjoy HIS unlimited love. But we must feel secure in our position of the redeemed before we can truly embrace that love, full well knowing that we do not deserve it. But GOD loves us with all of HIS being and wants us to enjoy that love. This has everything to do with our value system and what Jesus in Mark 12:29-31. This is a precept of the Kingdom of GOD.

Another of the precepts of the Kingdom is located in Galatians 5:16-26. Another is found in the 14th and 15th chapter of John. And yet, another is found in Galatians 6:7-9. A very important gathering is located in Ephesians 6:10-18. There are many that I have already discussed and many that I will be discussing in another letter. Right now I want to discuss several categories of statutes. Remember that statutes are principles of Kingdom operations that are more intimate instructions on how we can be pro-active in interacting with the Holy Spirit. I imagine that all of these are of some common knowledge to a certain extent, but I think that you will see something new to consider in your own Spiritual journey to Heaven. I understand that I do not know everything but I can only share what I have proofed in my own relationship.

The first category of interacting with the Holiness of GOD is through principle of Praise and worship. Praise and worship is not just about singing in the church on Sunday morning. I am well aware that singing is sometimes the talent that GOD gives so that we can better minister to the needs of others. But, the best Praise and worship come from a persuaded heart of devotion. One that is no longer living in the irrational and abject fear of GOD’s punishment for sin in Hell. Praise and worship is about freedom. Praise and worship is about love and thankfulness. Praise and worship at its heart is really about giving our lives a living sacrifice for the purposes of GOD.

A heart that is broken can bring forth the sweetest Praise to GOD because it is honest and open. A heart of devotion, and a mind that is dedicated in the purposes of GOD makes for a sweet smelling savor to the Father. We can pour out our emotional pain to GOD. Most Christians serve GOD out of fear. Fear that if we do not obey, that GOD is going to punish us. GOD does not need to punish us because our own unregenerate conditions of unrighteousness in our soul are going to constantly demand those wages of sin, causing our emotional pain and its illness . Our own soul is designed to alert us to those conditions as a defense mechanism in its efforts to clue us in, that something is amiss. If we do not listen, then it steps up the pressure and tries to tell us in our emotional feeling. The progress continues as we begin to experience the bending upon our chemical and electrical systems to where we begin to experience emotional difficulties and chemical imbalances. Then the immune system is depressed and our systems experience circulatory problems. And then organs begin to not operate optimally. Then, there is the long drawn out dying process until our body loses viability. Eventually we all die. Most will die sooner than was their potential. GOD knows exactly when we will die, but HE offers us wisdom to live a rich and full life. Because we are HIS Children, we can now embrace every expression of HIS love to us. Praise and worship is making a connection between our emotional condition and the Divine Nature of GOD. This is why it is so important for us to nurture the intimacy in our relationship with the Holy Spirit. HE is GOD. We are lively stones. We have been given this opportunity to become pro-active about those conditions of unrighteousness in our soul through contending for our soul hygiene and our sanctification. If not, your unregenerate conditions are going to demand the wages of sin as our own soul suffers under the weight of guilt, shame, and fear. But, regeneration is hardly possible in a soul that still believes that it is possible to somehow lose our salvation because of ill performance. That is not the love of GOD. That is the legalistic and irrational fear of GOD. We, as Born again Christians are to be in awe of the magnanimous Divine Nature of GOD.

And it is difficult for me to truly worship GOD from a heart that still believes that it is possible for me to lose my salvation because of my own failure or inability to perform. That is not rest. That is not abiding in the Vine. The type of fear that GOD wants, comes forth out of a heart that knows I do not deserve what HE has accomplished for me to be free indeed and trusts HIM as I learn how to walk according to the Spirit of life and enjoy my new liberties. The very Holiness of GOD’s love for is the dynamic power behind the sanctification I experience in the regeneration of the unrighteous conditions which can rid me of the ill conditions of unrighteousness in my inner man. The sad thing is that most Christians who lack full confidence in their salvation are too embarrassed to admit this stumbling issue. And so, they quietly suffer, with many never becoming persuaded and contending for FAITH. They never learn the Kingdom Truth behind the principle of thanksgiving and rejoicing.

Coming together on Sunday is a corporate assembling of ourselves together to celebrate the life sacrifices and the resurrection of Christ Jesus. What I want to address is Praise and worship in our private lives. How we act when we know that no one is watching. That tells so much more about our character than anything we do in public. My personal relationship with GOD is declared by GOD to the world.

We live for witness of the only ONE who’s flow can satisfy our new value and give us validation. What we do in private, GOD makes evident in public as HE elevates us. We should know by now that the greatest thing we could ever experience is the Glory of GOD being manifested out of us.

What we do in our private time alone tells volumes about our true dedication and devotion. Anyone can fake and pretend in public. The way the church is today it is real easy for a withered branch to hide amidst all of the other withered branches. But trust me when I say that a Christian who is experiencing that life giving flow of living waters within can easily distinguish a dried up branch from a lively branch. GOD desires the emotion of your devotion.

GOD does not want us to stay followers in fear as many sheeple are. GOD gives us everything we need to become lively Ambassadors who shepherd and disciple.

For an Ambassador, GOD provides divine appointments which are opportunities for us to share with others our treasures new and old. And someone must be willing to step out of their comfort zone and give themselves to GOD as a living sacrifice for the sake of this Kingdom that we are citizens of. When GOD said that it is more blessed to give than receive HE was speaking of a Spiritual principle. The more I give of myself to GOD and my treasures to others, the more GOD supplies fresh and new flow into me and my life. Even what we call The Golden Rule is greatly misconstrued. It is not, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” but, more in line with, “Do unto others as they would need most for you to do unto them.”

I know that my mind is constantly being draw by the Spirit of Christ that has been birthed within me. This, in no way, means that I am more spiritual than anyone else. This happens to every Born again Christian several times a day. The real truth is that I can never be better than anyone else, because it is GOD who elevates according to HIS purposes. If GOD calls me to clean the restrooms in the church I hope that they sparkle. And there is far more people who would rather haft to clean restrooms than bow their knee to GOD’s real purpose for their life.

Like I said, I cannot be better than anyone else, and I am to hold onto a proper image of myself.

I can determine to strive to be better tomorrow than who I was yesterday. My tomorrow begins today. My future begins right now because GOD does not judge me for my past but picks me up right where I am at, no matter where I am at and takes me from there to as much of HIM as I want. What I do today builds towards my tomorrow. I can change my mind and repent of my past, put my focus on GOD, start a whole new life this very day. And GOD will take me just as I am. As I have said before, there are many common things that happen in the life of all Born again Christians because we have the indwelling Holy Spirit. It is the normal inclinations of the flesh to think that I need to clean myself up before I can come to GOD for mercy and surrender my life to HIM. I do not mean to be tripe but you cannot clean a fish before you even catch it. Surrender all of your failures right now and let GOD be the ONE who cleans up your mess. Be genuine. Be honest. GOD knows honesty.

There is a common occurrence that happens to all Born again Christians every day. Several times every day the Spirit of Christ that has been birthed within me makes an intimate connection with GOD the Father. It’s almost like I will be going along, doing whatever I am doing, and I will realize that I am thinking about GOD. There are several scriptures that address this supernatural, transcendent occurrence. Those incidents are working evidence of the fact that I have been Born again of The Spirit of Christ.

Let’s look at Galatians 4:4-7 that says, “But when the fullness of the time was come, GOD sent forth HIS Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, GOD hath sent forth the Spirit of HIS Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”

In teaching new understandings I have found that it is always best to have confirmation from a second place in scriptures that exemplify the Spiritual Truth of what you are teaching.

So let’s look at Romans 8:14 and 15 which tell us, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of GOD, they are the sons of GOD. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

So we can see that Jesus Himself is witnessing that we are no longer under the bondage of performance in order to attain righteousness. No matter where we are in our intimacy with GOD, Jesus is going to keep right on making that intimate connection with our Abba, Father until He takes us on home. You see, we do not earn our way to Heaven by good behavior. We become Born again citizens and then learn how to inherit the Kingdom of GOD with our being.

It is recorded in John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”

The very Spirit of Christ that He births within us will do no less than lead us home. And because we are citizens of heaven, GOD, our Abba, Father has given us HIS indwelling Holy Spirit to open up our Kingdom inheritances within our being. We do not need to perform and struggle to try to be a good person by our own abilities. We know the failure of trying to do this by works. Is there any one of us who can satisfy GOD any better than Christ Jesus did in His sinless life and propitiation death on the cross for our Sin Nature? Jesus so perfectly fulfilled the law in His sin-less-ness, that after He had died on the cross for our Sin Nature, GOD the Father resurrected Him to newness of life as HIS stamp of approval. That stamp says, “Paid in Full.”

First off, the only thing we need to do is stand. We need to stand in the Grace with GOD who has given us this secure place in order to learn how we can now trust HIM, and let HIS Holy Spirit clean us up.

When we accept Jesus into our heart as Savior GOD stamps, PAID IN FULL on the ledger of our whole life; and then GOD throws the ledger away never to be used against us in any form, ever. This is why there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are the Born again citizen of Heaven.

We can now surrender all of our struggling and trying not to sin in our efforts to please what we once thought was a constantly, demanding GOD, and enter into that place of rest in Christ Jesus and His finished work. We have already arrived and can now rest in Christ who achieved and accomplished all of this for us. Now we can quit struggling to somehow accomplish what has already been accomplished for us in Christ Jesus. Now we can rest in the finished work of Jesus, being convinced and persuaded that we are fully vested citizens of Heaven.

Now, we are free to explore and experiment with our inheritances. Those who practiced the Law were doomed to failure in trying to earn that place of merit. They would never be able to achieve the merit of that resting place of accomplishment by their own ability to perform the letter of the Law. That fear was exactly the bondage that faith in GOD could release them from. We, as sons of GOD, have already been released from that bondage of fear from having to perform, and are now free indeed, so that now, that Spirit of Christ that Jesus has birthed within us, cries out several times a day, Abba, Father.

We are no longer held under the bondage of performance in the fear of having to achieve for our own righteousness in order to merit Heaven. We are citizens of Heaven who are free indeed from that bondage to fear to the requirements of the Law and from fear of the punishment of death in Hell. Jesus Christ has accomplished all of this on our behalf, and much more, so that we are now free to learn how to walk in the Spirit. The letter of the law kills. It is impossible to keep the law and achieve righteousness. Like Abraham, GOD wanted the Hebrews children to look beyond their failure in performance, humble themselves in the trust that GOD is the only ONE who could possible provide the righteousness needed to finally eradicate the ledger held over them like a curse for their inherited Sin Nature. They just did not understand that it was by and for that faith, that GOD, HIMSELF would come down in the Form of Christ and satisfy not just the demands of the Law, but give them the freedom of citizenship to be embraced and enjoyed. GOD has given each of us that citizenship, with its pardon and freedom. In that freedom, we stand in Grace with GOD, being now made Saints, with the right to experience the regeneration of the ill conditions in our soul through sanctification unto newness of Life.

It is bondage to the letter of performance that is keeping so many Christians a prisoner to fear. Some have figured this out, that it is now impossible to mess this salvation up once we are a citizen, but it appears that many more have not. The problem is that this attitude of perfectionism prevails in the teachings of the evangelical church. I am waiting for that day when the citizens of Heaven realize their true freedom and begin to praise and worship GOD because of who HE is to us. GOD is our source and our Benefactor. GOD loves us.

Praise and worship without devotion seems to prevail in many churches today. It’s almost like a production instead of an out-pouring of the heart in worship from that abandon in freedom. Time schedules are strictly adhered to, even when there is an altar call. I remember the abandon in freedom that I used to witness. There is nothing more glorious and nourishing as when we find ourselves caught up to that higher plane of Praise and worship. It satisfies like the sweet, cool summer rain upon a dry and thirsty land. Things of the Spirit cannot help but spring up and sprout when we surrender ourselves to GOD in adoration for what we have in HIM. Is your glass half empty or are you a glass half full? Do not dwell on what you think is missing from your life. Rejoice in what you do have in GOD. Start being a glass half full.

In John 4:14 Jesus said to the woman at the well, “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into Everlasting Life.”

So many today are glass half empty Christians who are saddened by focusing and dwelling on what they do not have. Life has disappointed them and those they once trusted have failed them and they have come into that mindset of focusing on what they do not have, rather than what they do have in Christ. This is why Philippians 4:4 and 5, instructs us to, “Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.”

There is an important Spiritual principle written here. And that principle is followed up in Phil. 4:6-8 which leads us to the next principle of Faith unto FAITH which is Prayer. To me, rejoicing is a bridge between Praise and Prayer. What I am saying is that many Christians are coming into assemblies with their attitudes of glass half-empty, trying to engage in Praise and worship, hoping that their prayers will be answered, but they leave with the same attitudes and there real need unmet. They went out feeling a little better than they came in with but it all too quickly dries up. And all the time they have that fount of living waters within them that has the potential of springing up into Everlasting Life. If only they would start rejoicing in what they do have and begin employing the rich provisions of the love of GOD. Then their real need would be met. But, there is no moderation in their attitudes.

What kind of witness for the life changing power of GOD is that? Vain worship changes nothing. It may make you feel a little better in the moment but there is no definite change manifested on a continuing level. What we are looking for are the changes that only the quickening of the Holy Spirit can actuate. We need to experience the Holiness of GOD touching our inner man till we radiate the Glory of GOD. Rejoicing in what we have in GOD is worship that brings changes for the better. Try it and see. Prove it to yourself.

Learning to rejoice is an art. We get better at it the more we practice it. Keep trying and do not give up. Those who press through their inhibitions will find what they are craving most. It creates something beautiful within that buds and blossoms on the outside as a sweet smelling fragrance to GOD. A Christian who is not persuaded in rejoicing stinks to everyone. Even I, find myself wanting to avoid them. But, I rejoice in the awesome ways that GOD is my source of what my soul needs most. I am blessed and highly favored of my GOD.

Every Christian should be Rejoicing in hope of the glory of GOD being manifested in our lives. We give honor to GOD when we express the joy that comes from rejoicing in all that we have in Christ. What is devotion? My attitude and focus cannot help but be towards GOD because HE is my source. GOD loves me as HE does everyone else. GOD is my fount of every blessing. I rejoice in what I do have, and worship GOD for how HE will manifest HIS Glory in my future.

Like Romans 5:1 and 2 says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with GOD through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and REJOICE IN HOPE OF THE GLORY OF GOD.”

Nobody really wants to rejoice when life is not going our way, but Romans 5:3-5 is telling us to do just that. Whether we wallow in despair or rejoice in hope of the glory of GOD being manifested is up to each of us and our attitudes. We know that nothing happens to us by accident. GOD has a plan for our good in every positive and negative thing that occurs in our life. If you wallow, you are not recognizing the very source of blessings, who is able to turn even our mistakes into something for our Spiritual prosperity. GOD loves all of us the same, both Born again and the unregenerate, but what really is pleasing to HIM is that sacrifice of praise in spite of the obstacles in life. Instinctively, turning to GOD, innately at all times, in all seasons. Yes, indeed, GOD loves all of humanity the same but only those who are Born again have intimate access to HIS love. I have the intimate privilege to embrace and enjoy the love of GOD. Do you want to change the very nature of your praise and worship? Do you want to pray more effectually? Start practicing rejoicing in GOD and what you do have in your citizenship. It is so easy to get discouraged when life appears to not be in our favor. It is difficult to worship GOD for the negative things that come our way in life. But it cannot come our way unless GOD has already decided that it should. Rejoicing in GOD changes thing. Especially our focus and our attitudes. Every Christian needs to understand the difference between happiness, joy, and rejoicing. When the happenings of life are in your favor it is natural to be content and happy. Happiness is great but we live by a higher means that gives us the ability to respond to life on that higher plane by the influence of all that GOD is. Happiness is when life influences you in a generally positive manner. It is precarious. It can be taken away from you. Joy is the Spirit influencing the inner you in spite of outside occurrences. It is a result of interacting with Holiness. Once you are progressing in sanctification you will experience that joy that weathers outside circumstances that would otherwise steal your happiness. Rejoicing is us choosing to focus on the great inheritances and possessions we have in GOD in spite of the physical lack we may perceive. Look ahead of the obstacles and rejoice in the fount of all blessings and see if you do not start seeing a springing up into Everlasting Life. GOD is the root and source of abundant life. It is for sure that our faith, our focus, and our attitudes play a role in our Spiritual well-being and mental hygiene. The inner man interacting with the Holiness of GOD cannot help but experience the results of that Holiness. There is no such thing as instant Spiritual maturity.

We are the Born again in training to be Ambassadors of the Kingdom of GOD to this world. We are to learn how to walk in life according to the Spirit and manifest Spiritual maturity that cannot help but exemplify the Character of Christ.

It is time to learn how to be. We need to experience the dynamic of GOD. We are dealing with the unseen Kingdom of heaven being manifested in our lives for others to witness. For some, this may be the only way that they ever see GOD. The world says, show me some grand evident of the existence of GOD and I will believe. They simply do not understand that GOD has already created the Cosmos.

Luke 17:20 and 21 tells us, “And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of GOD should come, He answered them and said, The Kingdom of GOD cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here, or, lo there! For, behold, The Kingdom of GOD is within you.”

Even though we are The Born again, the world is looking for The Glory of GOD in us. How is the Glory of GOD manifested? The Glory of GOD emanates from HIS Holiness. When we walk according to the Holy Spirit in sanctification, that dynamic changes us from the inside out. We inherit The Kingdom of GOD within and GOD is manifested out of us for the world to witness HIS Glory in how we respond to life on a level of Faith they do not have. The problem is that most Christians act no different from the world. Are we really coming together in His name or our in our own ability? What is our focus? What is our motive?

It is recorded in The Book of Matthew 18:20 that Jesus, “Himself said, For where two or more are gathered in My Name, there am I in the midst of them.”

After all, these are the all new ways of living life on that higher plane. It is a progressive process of regeneration, renewing, renovation and revealing.

We have already addressed the first principle of interacting with the Holiness of GOD in the category of Praise and worship. If your life is not all that you think it should be, I want to encourage you to consider moderating your attitude by rejoicing in what you do have in GOD through Praise and worship. The second category of intimately interacting with the Holiness of GOD is through the principle of prayer. First off, prayer is developed in the doing. It is one of the most intimate ways to interact with GOD. Could not the very words we sing in Praise also be a form of prayer? If we read the Word silently is it not a meditation? If I turn off the computer or anything that has my focus and give that time to interaction with scriptures or prayer am I not fasting? The point I am trying to make is all of these categories have interactive principles that merge into one constant theme. Looking to GOD and embracing all that He is to me. Just how much does GOD love me? GOD loves me with all of HIS being. When negative things happen in our life it is not GOD looking for a way to punish me. GOD is a master craftsman at turning negative into positive. GOD may intend to discipline me ill behavior but there too, it all intended for my good and my benefit.

I know that our finite thinking limits our Spiritual reality.

But Hebrews 11:1 informs us that, “Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

As perfectly secure Children of the Kingdom can we not experiment with all that GOD has provided to us? How do we learn the new if we do not explore and discover? We are secure citizens who are free indeed to explore every way possible of making GOD the priority of our life. We do not belong to ourselves for we have been purchased, bought, and redeemed to GOD. We belong to GOD.

We are going to make reasonable mistakes until righteousness comes forth. We are not limited like those who are not part of the Kingdom. Even though it may be that some Christians still serve GOD out of fear, it is impossible for any of us to mess up our salvation. Point in fact, our salvation with its inheritance of Eternal Life has gone on ahead of us into Heaven outside of our ability to touch or affect by anything we do back here in Earth. As citizens, we are to learn all of the different ways to take advantage of our citizenship. We are to explore all of the different ways to inherit the Kingdom of GOD within. We must discover for not just for ourselves but for the sake of others how to go in and out and find pasture; and then, show others how to do the same. Each of us must become a pioneer of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Any way that we can find to interact with the Holiness of GOD is going to be edifying. Prayer is something we can do with a thought. What exactly is meditation if it is not my thoughts focused on Kingdom matter?

We need to open ourselves up to the greater possibilities of the Kingdom of heaven. Jesus prayed as He walked from settlement to settlement. And He did so with His eyes open. I personally close my eyes for focus. Jesus was focused and had the right attitudes. He knew the power of finding a quiet place alone to pray. We can pray at anytime, anywhere, we may find ourselves. When it comes to routine time given to prayer I recommend preparation. When we write down the people and situations we intend to pray for in our interaction with our GOD, it becomes a written supplication. Supplication just means coming to GOD recognizing HIM as our source of supply. Whether we have considered it or not, when we look at Ephesians 6:10-18 we see that prayer is vital piece of our Spiritual armor. I consider it very difficult to mess up prayer. Prayer can be a defensive part of our armor. But it is also an offensive weapon that each of us must learn how to handle with experience. The important thing is to make that connection. Believe me when I tell you that when you pray, GOD is never confused about who you are talking to. GOD created Adam’s mouth to communicate with HIM long before Eve was brought forth. Our mouth was made to communicate our mind to GOD. Our pain. Our fears. And failures. Our hopes and dreams. But prayer can be a Praise also. In truth, every word we speak can be a source of life or death. Are my words to others encouraging or do they cut and bring down? Am I an agent of the Kingdom that lifts and builds up, or do I destroy? Do I plant seeds in others for a future harvest or do I curse and damn both them and myself to experience greater emotional pain in the future that hinders both of us in our spiritual potential? If we are truly walking with focus in sanctification the Holy Spirit will change the ill conditions in our inner man so that bitter water does not come forth as it did before. Point is that we are to be a well of sweet water springing up into Everlasting Life for the benefit of everyone we encounter.

James 3:8-13 tells us, “But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we GOD, and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of GOD. Out of the mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth from the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.”

In essence, these scriptures are addressing a confusion of source and focus. Are we Everlasting Life speakers or do our words cause destruction and death in others? I have a major issue with programs that teach people how to cope and restrict and control their anger and bad habits, and yet, do not teach sanctification of the inner emotional issues from which is the root source of these manifestations. It is the same way with Born again Christians trying to discipline our ill, sinful behavior unto being a good person in order to please GOD out of fear. They are not genuinely changed. They that are still serving GOD out of fear have yet to find their place of rest in the finished work of Christ Jesus. This is not a criticism but an evaluation in light of the Truth of who we are in the Kingdom of GOD. What I am saying is that our finite self-discipline will never produce Holiness along with its words of Righteousness out of an heart full of conditions of unrighteousness. If you cuss all the time when you get upset, offended, or disturbed by things outside of you, then your issue is not the bitter water that is coming out of your mouth. It is the unsanctified conditions of your inner man that no man has the ability to control. Better to correct those inner conditions and you remove the source of bitterness and its issuance of ill behavior and bitter waters. We all have anger management problems. Through interacting with Holiness we experience sanctification whereby we issue forth sweet waters. It is a process of changing our focus unto the righteousness of Everlasting Life springing up out of the very core of our being.

There is no way that we will ever be able to plumb the depths of prayer. So many Christians are intimidated by prayer because they lack confidence in themselves and GOD. A Christian must learn what GOD is responsible for and what GOD has given us responsibility for. Until that understanding is producing a persuaded heart, confusion reigns unto lack of focus and its lack of dedication with purpose. We do not want to be double-minded. You can surely change your will and its desires through sanctification. Now your will is becoming the will of GOD, and your motivations in prayer are more in alignment with harmony to The Kingdom of heaven. What happens when someone prays for the wrong thing with the wrong motives. The worst thing that can happen is nothing. Prayer has its sanctifying affect. What should happen is that the more you pray the more your motives will come into agreement with the will of GOD. Same thing that happens with your will happens with your attitudes. Isn’t this the function of sanctification? Sanctification by Holiness quickens and brings my motives, my will, and my attitudes into agreement with Holiness by changing the mindscape of my inner man. Everything else is me trying to control what issues forth out of those conditions. This is why me moderating my behavior by trying to be a good person will never manifest the Fruit of the Spirit. The Fruit of the Spirit is manifested out of a sanctified inner man quickened by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the gardener addressing the unrighteous conditions of my inner man unto being reclaimed mindscape conducive of Fruitful conditions. The ground conditions of the gardens of my mindscape are changed from hard, rock strewn, conditions of unrighteousness that are only conducive of weeds and thorns, thistles and bramble; unto cleared out conditions reclaimed, plowed, and ready for sowing good seed. If I can change those inner ill conditions; I can change what is controlling my desires, will, and motives. By sanctification then I change my conscience and its issues. Through sanctification, as I expose my innermost self, more and more to the Holiness of GOD, the carnal conditions of my inner man that are causing the bad thoughts, decisions and actions of my conscience are regenerated unto wholeness. Carnal thinking issues forth from the unrighteous, wounded, and damaged conditions of my inner man that are causing my emotional problems. Anger is the pain of my emotional wounds inflicted in my soul by iniquity, (my own doing), trespasses, (inflicted by others), and the traumas of life. Sanctification is me going through those regenerate changes in my inner man as I interact with the Holiness of GOD that have the ability to heal those infected wounds that are oozing and stinking. These could be the reason you feel stressed, ill, and weak all the time. Prayer is the most versatile and flexible access I have to my source of healing. Only GOD can meet my real need. If I do not like something I can pray about it to my source of all things. Gripping about things is a sure sign of carnality. My wounds cause my hurting emotions and my gripping is the oozing and rotting fumes of those wounds coming out in my words. Gripping defiles and is like a poison. Do you find that you have no friends and those that know you avoid you? Your bitterness with its sadness and gripping damages all who hear it. Your carnal conditions are showing. And growing. And sowing. You are passing on expressions of your inner conditions onto others. That is what we all do when we operate out of our inner conditions of unrighteousness. We sin. We trespass. And we could cause trauma.

We are to be on our guard for any indicators of the carnal nature in our attitudes, thoughts, conscience, and motivations. Please remember that carnality comes out of the destruction in our soul. Prayer is just one way to rid ourselves of carnality. The more you pray, the more you are quickened or changed in your inner man by the abilities of the Holy Spirit. And while, that may not be your motives for why you pray, it is a definite benefit. We pray to communicate our heart to GOD and HIS Divine Nature. Why cannot be for both our heart and our soul? Everything in the Kingdom of heaven functions for our benefit. If you really want to spice up your time spent in prayer consider starting off with Praise and worship. When the Hebrew children were coming up against what seemed like the impenetrable walls of the city of Jericho, GOD instructed them to put their Praise and worship team out front. Remember what happened to those walls? They came down. It is sound wisdom for us to consider doing the same. You may have already realized this because the Holy Spirit has inclined you to do so. Intercession is another word for coming to GOD on the behalf of yourself or others. I tend to look at intercession as coming to GOD on behalf of those who cannot do so for themselves. And again, intercessions can be written as supplications such as a prayer list of the sick at your church. Our written supplications tend to be more detailed than just trying to remember who and what to pray for. It can help us with focus in our time of prayer. Prayer is unlimited in the different ways that we can experiment. Yes, I did say experiment. A point that I want to emphasize is that we should not be afraid to experiment in our efforts to interact with Holiness. If we move in a wrong direction we can be confident that the Holy Spirit will make us aware of it. After all, HE is the builder and architect of our Spiritual house. The Holy Spirit is our guide and counselor in all Spiritual matters. The third way of drawing our focus towards the Holiness of GOD is through fasting. There seems to be a prejudice towards fasting today. It is not just about restricting food. You may have already practiced fasting and did not see it as such. Say, for an example, that you are watching television, and the Holy Spirit asked you to turn it off and read your bible instead. If you say yes, and then do so expediently, then you have not only obeyed instructions unto righteousness but you are also fasting from the television for that greater Spiritual purpose of interaction with GOD. Fasting can be anything we give up in deference to greater time and focus spent in pursuit of the Kingdom of GOD. There are so many different types of fasts. Fasting from foods is unlimited in variation. You can do water only fasting. Or, even juice fasting, which can benefit mind and body. You can practice fasts from food, fasts from meat, fasts from sugars, and even fasts from leaven. We can fast from video games, computers, phones, television, music, and even golf, giving that time in pursuit of the Holy Spirit. Much like praise and worship, fasting is a great compliment to prayer and meditation. You can benefit Spiritually from many types of fasts. Sometimes, fasting is what is necessary to breaking down spiritual walls that are hindering our Spiritual potential or healing from afflictions and illnesses. The thought is that anything that you do in life can get in the way of your Spiritual prosperity. This is why our intimacy with the Holy Spirit should be priority one. If an activity is getting in the way of our dedication or devotion, the Holy Spirit may put it on your heart to give it up and give that time to more profitable efforts. But for me, fasting is more of a focused decision to be proactive in my Spiritual endeavors. Interaction with the Word of GOD is the next category of the principle ways that we can interact with the Holy Spirit and experience sanctification. And while I have listed this category last it is the very one that has the ability to enhance every aspect of our relations and interactions with GOD. If you disdain time spent in the Word you are disrespecting your relationship with GOD. The time we spend in interacting with the Word gives the Holy Spirit what HE needs to make changes in the landscape of our soul. The Word of GOD is the Spiritual seed of the Fruit of the Spirit. We need to sow as much as we possibly can. In 2nd Corinthians, the Apostle Paul gives a Spiritual principle that is relevant whether we are addressing giving or sowing the seed of the Word into the field of the garden of our inner man.

2nd Corinthians 9:6, “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall real also bountifully.”

Before I get deep into the different ways that we can practice interacting with the Holiness of GOD through the the Word, I want to discuss a hidden Kingdom secret about the Word of GOD. There are actually up to four different levels of understanding and applications that can be gained from the scriptures. This is especially true of the words of Christ. The first level is the physical surface contextual. The first rule of studying scripture is that context rules. What I mean is that we are to never try to take scripture out of it context. When we do, it is not hard to misunderstand what it actually means. And it is not hard to misapply such. A scripture taken out of context can be made to say something that it was never intended to say. It can be misconstrued and misinterpreted. If you are having difficulty understanding a scripture you can usually go to the surrounding scriptures and a get a better understanding of the context of that scripture. Never take a scripture out of its context. This first surface level is called the open physical surface contextual. It is there for anyone and everyone to read. And it has a reason for being there for anyone to be able to read and understand. As I have said before, if you are having trouble understanding what is written on the surface, then there is no reason for you to get discouraged over that problem. The scriptures were written by men who were inspired to do so by the Holy Spirit. Who knows better what a scripture is intended to say than the Holy Spirit. Pray and ask HIM to show you what it means. Who better to have as your teacher than the Holy Spirit. Later I will show you a sure way to get the engrafted understanding of any scripture directly from the Holy Spirit.

There is a structure to the Word of GOD. This first level of the physical contextual rests on the surface for all to read and try to understand. Much of it is easy for even our finite mind with all of its different prejudices to understand. Man has many preconceived notions that will interfere with his ability to grasp the vernacular of the King James version of the Bible. The greater majority of what we call the King James version of the Bible is taken from earlier translations. It is very difficult to translate a dead language into a living vernacular without losing a lot of its tone and nuance, and some of its intentions. Truth is, there are no original copies of the letters that the New Testament writers penned available to us today. When you take into account the matter of all of the different minds that have made copies of the copies of those texts that are available to us today it could get discouraging. But do not worry, because we have the indwelling Holy Spirit to reveal Kingdom Truth to our understanding. So many different men with finite minds and so many different prejudices have endeavored to make the scriptures easier to understand by changing what was written on the surface to suit their prejudices. Paraphrases are real easy to read and follow the sentence structure but so very much of the Kingdom matter has been destroyed. Both on the physical surface and the structure underneath. By the time we get to the King James there have been not only changes but additions made by earlier scribes who probably did not realize the impact of what they were doing. Imagine if you will that an early scribe is making a copy for himself and adds an inspirational note out to the side of a scripture explaining what he thinks that the scripture is trying to say. He dies or gives his copy to someone else who now writes down his side notes as though they were a part of the copy of the original text. Or an early scribe could decide to leave off from copying a verse because he thought it superfluous and not necessary to copy. How many notes have been carried over into the next copy as thought they were more than just a thought in the mind of the earlier scribe. The writers of modern day versions and paraphrases are trying to be more correct but they may not realize that they are yet being motivated into doing so out of their own prejudices. Any changes we make a still changes and we need to be guided by the Holy Spirit to do so. Better yet, why not leave well enough alone and let the Holy Spirit reveal to our understanding what HE wants us to have. When we change the sentence structure and the actual words to suit the prejudices of our finite collected intellect we could find ourselves at odds with a hidden Kingdom buried under the surface like hidden treasures. Sure, I realize that sometimes this makes the sentences so much easier to read in the flow of the verses but the more this is done the more distance we put between the original texts and these adulterated and watered down versions and paraphrases we see today. This is all the more reason why we should be so dependent upon the Holy Spirit to give us the Kingdom truth and understanding engrafted into our Doctrine. Many Christians do not have a Spiritual house let alone any Kingdom treasures to share with others. When I change the sentence structure, and or the wording of a scripture, I disturb its Kingdom of GOD or heaven structure, that is hidden right under it physical surface contextual. Right under that physical contextual is the Eternal Kingdom of GOD contextual with it applications. Next under that 1st Kingdom context is the Everlasting Kingdom of heaven understanding with its application. Next under that last Kingdom of heaven level is the application to our individual soul. So you see that when I alter in any way what is written on the surface I disturb what is structured underneath that only the Holy Spirit can reveal to our mind. When anyone asks me, “which is the better version of the Bible,” I ask them right back, “Which one do you like?” you can read whichever version or paraphrase you are inclined to. But more often than not you are going to end up experiencing little if any sanctification or Spiritual growth. It may soothe your soul and calm your emotions but just like anger management it does not quicken to full measure. I myself, have some experience that I gained over a long road of dealing with this issue we all must face. If I am going to memorize a scripture I use the King James version. In reality, there are no new translations like some would like for you to think. Any new example of scriptures is a mixture is never as good as the original letters and accounts. This is all the more reason why we should concentrate on our intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. I know for a fact that the Holy Spirit has told me personally that there are several verses that are included in the different bibles we have today that were never in the original texts. But, that is for me to know, because such is only relevant to me and where I am now in my own relationship. And just so that you do not get discouraged about this situation, I want you to understand that the Holy Spirit is in complete control of your Doctrine. Remember that I explained that your Doctrine is Holy Spirit revealed understanding of how the Kingdom of GOD functions for your benefit. Doctrine is actually your Spiritual house of Faith designed and constructed by the Holy Spirit. Each developed understanding is like a brick in the walls of your house. It is built brick by brick in an orderly and accurate fashion. The Holy Spirit will never get a brick out of order. That has so much to do with our Spiritual growth. Your Spiritual Doctrine is your understanding of how the Kingdom of GOD functions for your benefit.

If you are being pro-active about your soul hygiene the Holy Spirit will not only take care of that but HE will take care of everything else. In the grand scheme, if a scripture is missing or rewritten or added, you can trust the Holy Spirit to deal with only Kingdom truth as HE gives the essential matter that is relevant. And, if needed, HE can reveal anything that is not GOD inspired. This is why HE is our counsel. If you have any kind of error or misconstrued information in your soul, the more you are pro-active with the scriptures, the more the Holy Spirit will use the Truth to search out those errors and replace them with Kingdom understanding that will bring you into greater harmony overall in FAITH. You can trust that the Holy Spirit is a Spirit of truth, order, and harmony. The Holy Spirit can not only enlighten you the meaning of any scripture that you want to understand but HE can engraft the Kingdom application directly into your understanding. The awesome thing about the Holy Spirit giving the engrafted is that we not only receive perfect understanding but we are given perfect application. It is like a missing piece of our overall puzzle is put in its place. You can be sure that if something is missing, (due to man’s error) or mistranslated that the Holy Spirit will rescue that situation and fill in the missing truth for you. There are several different ways to interact with the scriptures.

If you will notice that every scripture reprinted in this letter is taken from what is commonly called the King James translation of the Bible. I use that same translation for all memorization and quoting of any scripture. That is my personal choice for reading and memorization. Just so I will not be misunderstood on this subject, I do study many different versions as I deem needful to get a clear picture of what a word or a scripture is meant to impart. But, as so often is the case, what I see, on that surface is not the whole understanding to be gained. I use whatever Greek and Hebrew versions that are available when I trace out origins. I do not trust what is on the internet but I still use it sometimes to see what others think about scripture and context. But, all of that pales in comparison to getting enlightenment from the Holy Spirit. Now that I better understand how things function, I cannot help but get my understanding directly from the Holy Spirit. I know and understand what error does and the issues it causes. I am resolved to stay in harmony with the Holy Spirit and let Him deal with my understanding. Reading the scriptures quietly has its place. And there are several results that happen when we read the scriptures this way. One occurrence is that there will be a correlating identification with what Truth that we already have. This is one of the few ways that reading silently and meditating on the scriptures make that bridge between my conscious mind and my subconscious inner man. While I want the scriptures to have full impact in my waking conscious mind, the overall goal is the effect that interaction can have in the subconscious, inner soil conditions of the fields of my garden. I read and study scripture as much as I can I in my efforts to understand what the writer is saying. But, I also know that as I do, that I will experience something far greater than an idea or understanding. I need for the scriptures to clean out the negative pollution I have gathered in my waking mind during our all my daily activities.

Proverbs 30:5 tells us, “Every word of GOD is pure: HE is a shield unto them that put their trust in HIM.”

The very nature of the word of GOD is pure on an Holy Live-giving level. When we keep that word and hide that word within our soul, it cannot help but have a cleansing and sanctifying power of the nature of GOD working in us. It works against the destructive conditions that have been caused by unrighteousness, and the pollution in our soul. The Spiritual power of the Word of GOD heals many of the bruises, scrapes, nicks, cuts, and wounds in my soul.

Psalm 107:20 tells us, “HE sent HIS Word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”

This is talking about our Savior, who is the living, breathing Word of GOD. This is also telling us that not only are we now positionally Sanctified, but we can be healed in our soul and be delivered from the conditions of destruction in our soul by that continual healing ability of that Word. Reading the scriptures can identify with what GOD had already written on the tables of your heart when HE redeemed you, and made you one of HIS Children. This identifying incident happens when we interact with the scriptures. How many times have you heard or read something from the scriptures for the very first time and a thought from deep inside your soul will say something like, I think I already knew that, even though you know for a fact that you have never encountered that Truth before. That happens because everything you will ever need to know about the Kingdom of GOD is already written upon your heart and soul. It is just that up until now there had not been a trigger between what had been written in your heart and this new instance of Truth that you have just heard or read. This is your confirmation of citizenship because only a Born again Christian can experience this type of identification. Here in The Letter to the Hebrews the writer quotes almost word for word what GOD had the prophet Jeremiah write down in Jeremiah 31:31-34. Check and compare Jeremiah with what is recorded in Hebrews 8:6-12 where it speaks of this new covenant that GOD would establish with each of us through the innocent blood of Christ Jesus: “But now hath He (Jesus Christ) obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also He is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, HE saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a GOD, and they shall be to ME a people: and they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know ME, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.”

Once you have been pro-active (taking advantage of every way that you can) in your soul hygiene for a month or so, (depending upon your diligence) reading the scriptures silently will seem to take on a greater ability but that happens because you are regenerating the conscience by taking out the trash. That man of our conscience is becoming more accustomed to what you are doing. I read the scriptures silently on occasions for various reasons. My whole purpose here is that I want to encourage you but I also do not want to keep anything from you. And just to be clear, reading the scriptures is like praying. If I pray for the wrong things, or from the wrong motives; even though there will be no answer, the time I spent interacting with GOD is going to yield Kingdom results within my being and in the intimacy of my personal relationship with HIM. Almost the same goes when I read the scriptures. Even though I may be reading a word or two or even a sentence that might be different in some way from the original texts, the Holy Spirit knows all, and can give me the Kingdom of GOD matter that has the power to make all of the differences dissipate in the Light of Truth. The Holy Spirit gives us the Light of Truth in Doctrine. I may listen to others but I get my Doctrine from the Holy Spirit. I can trust HIM to make any perfect corrections needed. My advice would be to read the scriptures as much as you can and let the trustworthy Holy Spirit do exactly what HE does best in sorting things out. Having a hard time understanding what the scriptures are saying should not keep you from reading the Word of GOD. If it does, then that is just an excuse. I know that the Holy Spirit full well has knowledge of all things.

2nd Timothy 3:16 and 17 tells us that, “All scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of GOD may be perfect, THROUGHLY furnished unto all good works.”

So with that said, I think that we can trust the Holy Spirit to sort out the things of the Kingdom of GOD and take care of gleaning the grain that is beneficial to my soul while throwing away any chaff. It is no small deal that the Holy Spirit will fill in any Kingdom matter that may be missing. Even though I am going to describe in as much detail what I have learned so far on that subject, you do not haft to know all of the details in order to take advantage of your inheritance. Every day, all day long we are exposed to the negative, damaging and hurtful things of this world. If we do not do something about this pollution, it will become a part of the eventual makeup of our soul and continue its disturbing effects in our inner man. We are a product of everything we have ever touched, tasted, smelled, seen, heard, felt, or experienced.

Every time that we fall asleep we dump what pollution we have encountered during our waking time, as is, from our waking conscious mind into the dark recesses of the inner man of our soul. What we need to see is that while I am awake my conscience that stands guard between my conscious and my subconscious man, is working hard to protect my inner man from all of the junk that my waking conscious is experiencing. If I experience a wounding incident, my conscience will not be able to stop the emotions stored up in my inner man from being triggered by this new incident and expressed out into my waking conscious. This is why many times we express anger that is far greater than what little emotions the incident itself should have warranted. This is why anger management is strained because we are trying to force our natural expression of emotions to stifle or be diverted into what we may think is a less damaging direction. Any type of controlling methods we use are going to cause eventual mental or physical health problems until we actually get rid of the root cause. Therefore I do not teach anger management, because it is merely management of how we express our emotional pain; and not spiritually tactical by getting rid of the root cause of the anger, that I am trying to cope or force myself to make nice and get along with. I give my class tools and Kingdom knowledge so that they can get rid of their root cause the way GOD intended for us to through the sanctification process. Not only can we deal with the roots but we grow Spiritually in Faith in the process. Actually, I teach sanctification from a spiritual standpoint emphasizing the Kingdom process that has the added benefits of dealing with the root cause of our anger in that process of cleansing. To be succinct, our whole being is sanctified by the washing of that water of the Word. But overall, our being is quickened by the Holiness of GOD. You can say the same thing in many different ways but it all boils down to the indwelling Holy Spirit doing what only HE can do.

Once any of that pollution is dumped into our inner man, it becomes much harder and now takes a great deal more effort on our part to remedy that new portion of influence; that, even though it is junk, it acts like programing to the conscience of my inner man. If I deal with this junk while it is still in my waking consciousness then I eliminate its corrupting affects, and I get a day ahead of that old cumulative, and compounding effects it would have had in my inner man. In truth of reality I get much more ahead than that mere time span of a day, because there is no way of telling how long it would take for me to see the complete elimination of its compounding affects upon everything else in my soul.

So, I hope that you can see that it is much more prudent for us to become militantly pro-active about this warfare for the soil and ground conditions of the inner field or garden of our soul. But, this is just part of our inheritance of new life. If I become pro-active about this situation my soul starts recovering and, as I regenerate, I gain new Spiritual Life that now helps me to overcome the negatives I have been enduring for a long, long time. My joy of life will recover, and increase according to my diligence. I will find myself getting less easily offended. My patient will increase. I will become more confident in myself and my relationship with GOD. My compassion will increase. It will become easier for me to express my emotions without fear of hurting others or even embarrassment. Now, if you were to ask me, I would say that is the ultimate way to deal with any anger issues I may be experiencing in my life. And the good thing about all of this is that I get to choose however much of this I want.

If I interact with the Holiness of GOD by reading the Word silently there could be less, little, or maybe none of that pollution that gets dumped, but it will take several days of this type of perseverance before I begin to actually feel any difference. Some actually see immediate benefits. We are all different and individual. I can say this for sure; be contantly expecting. But do not get discouraged because this is just the way things work and everybody is different. There is so much more to learn. Feelings can be deceiving and lie to me, even though I am getting ahead instead of behind because of diligence. I am learning the ways of sanctification unto Faith that is going to be dealing with conditions that I have been storing up and adding to every passing day for years now. As I deal with the clutter and trash the process will continue on unto dealing with those old stored up conditions long before I will ever get to hundred fold Fruitfulness.

In Mark 4:3-9 Jesus tells us, “Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred. And He said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.”

As I have said, no matter how mature you may be age-wise, when you first decide to become spiritually pro-active in this understanding of soul hygiene, you are going to find that everyone starts out dealing with the same clutter and trash and garbage stored up in their inner man before they get down to the actual soil conditions in earnest. For us today, there is no such thing as instant mature when it comes to Spiritual Faith.

I am actually striving to swim against the current of that flow of corrupt. A good way to deal with what has been accumulating in my soul for years now is to begin my time of interaction with the scriptures with Praise and worship in gratefulness to GOD for all of HIS provisions. The overall, immediate, effects of praise and worship are not limited to my waking conscious, but, continues on past my conscience into the heart of my inner man. Praise is like rain upon the field of my garden as it has a definite effect on that hardness. You will see why a little later. Vocal prayer is not limited to my waking conscious. Fasting is not waking conscious limited. Fasting may subject my flesh to weaken but it empowers my prayer. If I begin my time of assault upon the negative conditions in my soul with Praise and worship, I am reaching into my whole being.

It has an impact on the whole soul. It sanctifies all of me. All during this time the Holy Spirit will be speaking to me. The Holy Spirit is always speaking to me. I must learn how to listen for HIS voice. This is far more important than I am able to emphasize with mere words. This is because the Holy Spirit is now going to be directing me to deal with issues that only HE can see, through prayer. As I clean out the clutter and trash it is going to uncover the nastiness of my wounds of iniquity, the damage caused by other people and their trespasses against me, and also the traumas and disappointments that I have suffered are going to become more and more evident. It is up to the Holy Spirit to show me how to deal with those tragedies. For sure one thing will become more evident. As long as I am blaming others for what has happened it is going to be more difficult to deal with those traumas and tragedies in my soul. I do not forgive others because they somehow deserve such. I forgive because GOD tells me to. I surrender my rights to retribution, retaliation, and vindication. I basically get off of the throne in my heart and invite GOD to be Lord of those situations. Now the hands of GOD are figuratively untied for HIM to do what only HE can do. Heal me and work on the heart of the offender. Up until then I have been judge, jury, prosecutor and warden. But, in truth, it has been me who was imprisoned and suffering. As long as I keep blaming someone else for the extent of the damage within my soul, I am impeding my healing. I must come to that place in my understanding, that regardless of the cause: THAT damage is in MY SOUL, and I must own all of it if I ever want to be free of it. The extent of the damage is not just about who is to blame for causing it; by my own ill way of reacting and how I processed it internally. I must own and taking responsibility for everything in my being. I write the check of forgiveness even though no one may ever come to cash it by admitting their culpability in the matter and asking for forgiveness.

Knowing all of that is good, but I want to show you how to step up your assault upon the ill conditions of your inner soul. Remember that your conscience stands like a guard between your waking conscious and the subconscious of your inner man. When I am reading the scriptures silently, what I may not have considered is that my waking conscious has been trying to sound out the words in my mind. So why not go ahead and take that step of Faith and speak those words out loud. Reading the scriptures silently is limiting. Taking that step of Faith by speaking those words out loud brings those words to life, abundantly. They become lively, empowered words.

There are actually four chapters in the New Testament and many other scriptures throughout the Bible that speak of this active step of Faith. Right now I want to deal with what happens when I do decide to begin stepping out in Faith by declaring the Word. First of all, the ears of my conscience hears and recognizes my voice. Whereas, before, when I was reading the scriptures silently my conscience was standing up and trying to guard my inner man. But now, as I declare the scriptures out loud, the conscience of my ears recognizes my voice and lets down his guard and gives my words the pass on into my subconscious inner man. When I listen to someone else speak out loud any scriptures, again there will can be that recognition between what I already have and what they are saying but my conscience will still try to protect my inner man by blocking off a voice other than mine.

Remember how I said that my Praise, worship, and my prayers were not limited to my waking conscious mind. Well and good that the same is true when I declare the Word of GOD out loud because without the scriptures there is no seed for sowing. And when I declare the Word of GOD out loud I become the sower sowing the seeds of the Spirit into the field of my garden. My conscience recognizes my voice and does not put forth the same efforts to guard my inner subconscious from the sanctifying effects of those spoken words. There is a pattern here in Faith.

Romans 10:17 tells us, “So then Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of GOD.”

Hebrews 11:1 tells us, “Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Anytime is a good time to interact with the Holiness of GOD. Strategically, Jesus tells us in another parable that the most opportune time to interact with GOD through these principles of Holiness in just before we lie down to sleep.

In Mark 4:25-29 it is recorded that Jesus said in a parable to those listening, And He said, “So is the Kingdom of GOD, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.” Declaring the scriptures out loud is a progressive step of Faith unto sanctification. When we read the scriptures silently, we get the Word into our conscious mind through what we see with our mind’s eyes and sound out with our minds voice. As I said earlier, at first the effects are limited to our waking conscious mind. That is just one way that we can engage in sanctification. But when we take that next step of Faith by declaring out loud what our waking conscious is already trying to sound out inside; we empower that Word to greater liveliness and by consequence of our mouth getting involved our ears hear the Word in a voice it recognizes and allows it to enter into our subconscious less hindered. With practice this hiding the Word in our heart will become second nature as our soul becomes accustomed to this act of Faith unto FAITH.

So now I hope that you can see that by declaring the scriptures out loud, I am not only cleansing my conscious waking mind, I am also casting the seed of the Fruit of the Spirit into the field of my inner man and so much more. This is a sure way for the Word to abide in me. If I have entered into that place of rest in the finished work of Christ and I am becoming more and more persuaded that it is now impossible for me to somehow ever lose that salvation benefit of my citizenship in the Kingdom of GOD then I am ready to begin abiding in the Vine; and begin to experience Spiritual Fruitfulness as the Word abides in me. Now I know how to cast seed into my field by declaring the Word of GOD out loud to my soul and experience the exponential ability of the scriptures to cleanse me of the unrighteousness that has been causing me to leave destruction in my wake.

In John 15:1-12 Jesus said, “I am the true Vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit HE taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, HE purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the Word that I have spoken unto you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the Vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in Me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is My Father Glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be My disciples. As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you: continue ye in My love. If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even a I have kept My Father’s commandments, and abide in HIS love. These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is My commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.”

Now remember how I said earlier that the physical surface contextual was open for everyone to read and understand. We need to keep things in their context and when Jesus was speaking these words He was still living in the Old Testament days. The New Testament did not start until the resurrection of Christ from the grave to that Glorified newness of life of the Spirit. Every promise and word in the Old Testament and the New Testament scriptures are now the written last will of GOD naming every Born again Christian as the inheritor of what is written therein. The New Testament details how we can interact with GOD and inherit the benefits of the Kingdom of GOD within our being while we are here in Earth. There is a dire need for Christians to get their Kingdom understanding of scriptures directly from GOD, HIMSELF.

Proverbs 3:5-8 instructs us to, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge HIM, and HE shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.”

There should not be any division concerning the interpretation of scripture. The Kingdom understanding given by the Holy Spirit is the only source of Truth that can build our Doctrine. It is important that we learn how to study and rightly divide the whole Word of GOD.

If anyone expresses the pagan idea that it is in some way possible for a Born again Christian to somehow lose their citizenship position of the saved from Hell; your question should be: “What scriptures are you using to base that concept upon?”

I will be writing a new letter detailing the understanding of the hard to understand and misinterpreted scriptures from the Word of GOD.

The enemy loves to keep a Child of GOD in confusion. You do not argue. You present the Truth and allow the Holy Spirit to change their minds misunderstanding. The truth makes us free while error binds and blinds. Error is dangerous for it is the biggest source of confusion. The majority of Christianity are not persuaded in the fact of their security, even though they are truly Born again and fully vested citizens of Heaven through Christ Jesus alone. They do not understand the difference between Eternal and Everlasting Life. They do not know what GOD is responsible for and what HE has given them responsibility for. They have yet to start their journey in sanctification and by such, move out of those lanes of perfectionism over into that dedicated narrow and straightened lanes of Fruitfulness. They are still trying to produce The Fruit of the Spirit by their disciplined good behavior. It may be that they have yet to enter into their place of rest in the finished work of Christ. If that is the case then they surely are not abiding in the Vine. We must help ever brother and sister to understand that only the Holiness of GOD can quicken the genuine changes of sanctification unto Fruitfulness. The majority of Christianity is trying to imitate and emulate what the scriptures describe. Trying to imitate what the word says on the surface is mocking the genuine that only GOD can produce in us. In the light of Kingdom reality we are to become more and more a genuine manifestation of what the word is describing and we can only do so as the result of us interacting with the Holiness of GOD. The letter from Paul to the Galatians addresses man’s finite abilities to act out the fallacies of what is called Perfectionism.

Perfectionism was the pitfall of the Law. This is why GOD said in Jeremiah 31:31-34 that HE was going to institute a New Covenant. The imitating and emulating of what the scriptures said on the surface did not work for them because it does not look to GOD by faith to be the only source of Righteousness needed to overcome the power of the Sin Nature and its curse of death in Hell. When we look at the letter of Ephesians we see that Paul is warning us of the pitfall of trying to manifest the moderations of Holiness by our efforts of perfectionism. It simply will not work or accomplish Holiness within by our self-disciplining our flesh unto a lifestyle choice of good behavior. That is the finite trying to imitate the infinite.

Ephesians 6:7-9 advises us, “Be not deceived; GOD is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap Life Everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.”

Many in the Church today still do not grasp the distinct and yet connected understanding of the difference between Eternal and Everlasting Life. Enlightenment from the Holy Spirit shows us that we have a perfectly secure salvation with its citizenship of Eternal Life in Heaven by the crucifixion death of Christ Jesus on that cruel cross of Calvary. And because Christ Jesus was resurrected from that death unto newness of Life by the Glory of the Father, we, too, have been resurrected unto that newness of life in the Spirit. That newness of life is called Everlasting Life or that abundant life manifested within us by the Spirit. The apostle John understood this intimacy from staying so close to Jesus. Paul understood this and wrote in his letters of Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians the understanding of the difference between perfectionism by works and the Fruit of the Spirit by Holiness.

We are enlightened by Jude 1:3 that informs us with its insight and instructions; “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it is needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the FAITH which was once delivered unto the saints.”

In essence, there are three levels of faith that operate in the life of the elect.

There is that measure of faith that GOD, the Father seeds into every one of HIS elect for them to invest into the Name of Jesus.

After we have invested that measure of faith into the Name of Jesus, as a Born again Christian we have entered into that broad and wide highway of the Kingdom of heaven as Saints of the priesthood guaranteed by the indwelling Holy Spirit. Thirdly, now that we stand in Grace with GOD, by HIS Holiness we are discipled through the sanctification process for our office of ministry in our Ambassadorship.

GOD has made provision whereby every Born again Christian can get his Doctrine directly, from the Holy Spirit. GOD has established each believer in the peace of Grace with HIM, so that we can now learn through discipleship of the Holy Spirit how to contend for our predetermined office of responsibility in the Body of Christ. I urge you to do whatever it takes or cost you to learn how to develop your personal intimacy with the Holy Spirit.

For some reason that only GOD knows, those early Saints that fell from that once delivered FAITH down to that broad and wide entry Faith of the common salvation that we are familiar with today, either did not record or that record has been lost of their travails in learning how to contend for that enlightened straight and narrow FAITH they had lost. In my mind, I think that we contend more earnestly, in devotion, when we must learn these understandings personally first-hand without their written experiences to prejudice our own learned experiences. When man teaches what his finite mind interprets, it causes confusion and bondage to fear. By leaning upon their own prejudice ability of discernment, and even more so, teaching this erroneous style of discernment, many Christians today serve GOD out of fear of loss instead of the devotion that comes from being persuaded that we are free indeed and stand in Grace with GOD.

I say again, Every Born again Christian has been given from GOD, HIMSELF, that sure way by which each of us can get our personal Doctrine through direct, first-hand, from the Holy Spirit. We are now priests unto our GOD by the very provisions of Sainthood. No matter where I may be in the level of intimacy I am experiencing with GOD, every Born again Christian is a SAINT only because GOD has established us in that Sanctified position of Grace through the finished work of Christ Jesus. And because we are now established as wise virgins, as the Bride of Christ, GOD has given us the wedding gift of that Robe of Righteousness and HIS indwelling Holy Spirit to show us the way to employ and enjoy all of the privileges and rights to this Spiritual Kingdom we are even now a fully vested citizen of.

I know that learning and becoming convinced that we now stand in that secure position of Grace with GOD all the way to Heaven changes our hearts from what was once bondage to fear, into now experiencing greater peace with its devotion in thankfulness to HIS magnanimous Divine Nature.

Error is lie and Satan is the father of lies. Error binds us and hinders our Spiritual prosperity by blinding us to Kingdom Truth.

There are some who take this passage from Hebrews 6:4-6 and try to teach that it is saying that there is a possible for a Born again Christian to somehow lose their salvation.

Today, it is impossible for a Born again Christian to lose that salvation benefit of their citizenship for any reason whatsoever. Once we are in intimacy with our Abba Father there is nothing in all of creation that has any power to separate us from HIS love for each of us. Even though GOD loved us with all of being; before we were Born again, our Sin Nature was separating from enjoying intimacy with that love. But once we are become HIS Child the wrath of GOD for that Sin Nature has been addressed and satisfied by Christ Jesus and we are now in intimacy with the love of GOD.

In Romans 8:38 and 39 Paul encourages us, “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of GOD, which is in Christ Jesus our LORD.”

After the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ Jesus, that Sin Nature has lost its power. In fact, Hell has been addressed, answered, and destroyed for all Born again Christians by Jesus, when He died on that cross. In fact, after the resurrection of Christ Jesus, it is now impossible for a citizen of heaven to commit what is commonly called the unpardonable sin that is described in the Book of Matthew 12:9-32.

Jesus paid for every sin that would ever be committed from the beginning of time when Adam fell till the end of all time. That is what propitiation is.

1st John 2:2 explains, “And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”

After the death of Christ, there is no way that a Born again Christian could be able to commit that Old Testament unpardonable sin. The only time that anyone could have committed such a sin was when Christ was alive on earth in His flesh and blood body before His crucifixion. The only reason that anyone can go to Heaven when they die is through becoming a Born again Christian by the innocent blood of Christ Jesus. The only reason that anyone has to go to Hell is because they are still under the wrath of GOD for that Sin Nature. Nobody goes to Hell because they have committed and particular type or number of sin. Again, the ONLY reason anyone has to go to Hell is because they are still under the wrath of GOD for their inherited Sin Nature. But once anyone has believed in the Name of Jesus and become Born again, they have been redeemed from the wrath of GOD for that inherited Sin Nature and now they have the right to inherit Everlasting Life within. They are now passed out from under that curse of the condemnation of death in Hell for their Sin Nature unto new Life in the Spirit.

John 3:17 and 18 tells us, ‘For GOD sent not HIS Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is NOT condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of GOD.”

GOD has set us free from that old wrath for our inherited Sin Nature through Christ Jesus taking that condemnation of death in Hell for our Sin Nature upon Himself and dying in our place on the cross of Calvary. Now GOD wants us to embrace all of HIS provisions to HIS Children and learn how to enjoy life to its fullest.

Paul writes in his letter to the church in Ephesus in Ephesians 3:16-21, “That HE, (GOD) would grant you according to the riches of HIS Glory, to be strengthened with might by HIS Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all Saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of GOD. Now unto HIM that is able to do exceedingly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto HIM be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

Holy Spirit enlightened Truth sets us free to give our GOD Praise and worship out of a heart of devotion, knowing that we are now at peace and stand in Grace with GOD. When we become persuaded that we are now free indeed, and that there is no way that we can ever mess up our salvation, we then get to learn what it means to rejoice in hope of the Glory of GOD being manifested within us. That persuasion, with its Spiritual potential afterwards is what the enemy has been doing his best to steal from The Children of GOD.

Romans 5:1 and 2 states, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with GOD through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this Grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the Glory of GOD.”

Remember that I said earlier that the Holy Spirit is the architect and the builder of our Spiritual house? HE is also the power behind the cleaning and the landscaping. HE knows exactly what needs to be done in an orderly progression, to address the corrupt conditions of unrighteousness that are hindering our Spiritual sanctification and prosperity. Sanctification and spiritual maturation are two works that are interdependent. The obstacles of life have a purpose that so many try to avoid. As we walk in sanctification through the Holy Spirit we are able to face life in strength, with the understanding that GOD is our source and that nothing that happens to us is an accident. It all has purpose as a training experience that produces eventual Spiritual maturity. A great part of that maturation process is learning how to wear our spiritual armor. Prayer is both a defensive and offensive weapon. We have been given several strong pieces of defensive armor for us to use in our journey to Heaven. Learning how to employ and take advantage of our armor is part of our maturation process. But, it is a process, whereby we gain manual dexterity of expertise in the doing. To begin with, we have been given three pieces of that armor that we wear at all times whether we know and understand how to employ their abilities or not. Those three pieces are the belt of truth, our breastplate of righteousness, and our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. At all times we have on that foundational belt of truth that is at all times trustworthy, but we must learn how to take advantage of its greater functions. It rests as a girdle upon our Spiritual robe, that unstainable garment of salvation that the Father gave us when we first became one of The Born again in Christ. We use this belt of truth to gird up our loins for spiritual action. In other words, we take the fringes of our wedding garment and tuck them in our girdle of truth in order to gird up our loins so as not to trip over them when we move into the fray of activities and spiritual warfare. The foundational functions of these three pieces of our armor are always working to keep us secure in the promises of GOD, but as we learn how to align ourselves with truth and co-operate with the Holy Spirit, HE trains us in their constantly growing potentials.

Ephesians 6:10-18, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of HIS might. Put on the whole armor of GOD, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of GOD that ye may be able to stand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and 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;”

We learn how to wear our armor in the doing. We must learn how to stand in grace, and rejoice in the greater potentials of our Spiritual armor. It grieves me to say that I encounter so many truly Born again Christians who have no clue about their Spiritual armor. The last principle category of interacting with Holiness is the Word of GOD or as Paul in Ephesians 6:17 calls The Sword of the Spirit. I encounter so many Christians who tell me that they have a difficult time understanding the scriptures. They use this and every other excuse for not spending time in the Word. My response is simple. The reason that you do not understand the scriptures is because you have yet to learn this Kingdom truth. You are not supposed to be able to understand the scriptures in The Word of GOD all by yourself. That is exactly why GOD gave us HIS indwelling Holy Spirit. We are to learn through experience that we are supposed to be 100% dependent upon the Holy Spirit to give each of us our enlightenment of scripture and Doctrine. Doctrine is Holy Spirit given Truth. There are many ways that the Holy Spirit gives us understanding of Kingdom Truth. First off, we must obey the primary rule of context when we interact with the Word of GOD. Context rules in all efforts to study and interpret scriptures. You can take a scripture out of its context and turn it into something that it was never intended to be. It is because of misinterpretation that there is confusion and error in the different denominations of Christianity. If everyone was getting their understanding of scripture directly, first-hand from the Holy Spirit there would be a united Body of Christ that could bring the whole into harmony.

2nd Timothy 2:15 tells us to, “Study to shew thyself approved unto GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” And once more, 2nd Timothy 3:16 and 17 tells us, “All scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for Doctrine, for reproof, foe correction, for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of GOD may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”

Religion is about control. That control is only possible because of the confusion that the individuals Christians suffer and the denomination teaches. Every Christian has every right to get their understanding of scripture first-hand in their intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit. I am going to give you several different ways to begin moving in that direction. We are all a work in progress. And the best thing about learning how to walk according to the Spirit is that anyone can start right now, no matter where you may be and begin seeing results. I am addressing all Born again Christians. Talking and listening is the universal way to get to know someone better. Interaction with the Holy Spirit is no different.

Reading the scriptures silently is a good thing and has its place in our quiet times of devotion or time given to GOD. A heart of devotion is one that is totally given to GOD after we are persuaded that we are free indeed and have entered into the rest in Jesus.

And while reading the scriptures silently is a good thing, it is limited. Have you ever been reading the scriptures and even though you may have read those very scriptures many times before, all of a sudden, through enlightenment by the Holy Spirit they seem to leap off of the page into your understanding? There is a Spiritual function at work. This is a Spiritual identification in agreement with harmony happening. What has happened is that there has been some kind of Spiritual growth in your house in Faith and you are now ready to receive a new brick of Spiritual Truth in the wall of your Doctrine. Remember that I said early on that your Doctrine is Holy Spirit revealed Truth about the Kingdom of GOD. What many Christians are unaware of the Spiritual fact that everything that you would ever need to know about The Kingdom of GOD has already been written upon the tables of your heart. That is an important part of the all new ways of the Kingdom of heaven, that you are a part of, in this blood bought covenant that we have with GOD. There are several identifying occurrences that happen to all saved Christians that witness of fact that they are indeed The Born again. This occurrence is actually a personal witness of the covenant that you have with GOD that was prophesized of in The Book of Jeremiah long before Jesus was even born. This only happens to those who are The Born again, established as HIS chosen elect in this New Testament of Christ Jesus. The writer of The Book of Hebrews understood this and witnessed of this New Testament covenant that GOD would establish with HIS chosen elect that would become spiritual Israel by faith in The Name of Jesus. Jeremiah 31:31-34 where it declares to everyone, “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel, and with the House of Judah, (Judah is where the terms Jews came from):

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the (unbreakable)(blood) covenant that I will make with the House of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their GOD, and they shall be MY PEOPLE. And they shall teach no more every man, (the perfectionism of keeping the Law in order to attain righteousness) his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know The Lord: for they shall all know ME, (by the indwelling Holy Spirit) from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith The Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Again, the writer of The Book of Hebrews understood this unbreakable New Testament Covenant that GOD would establish with everyone HE chose to elect to become the Born again through Christ Jesus. In Hebrews 8:6-12 we are told of this Truth, “But now hath He, (Jesus) obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also He is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, HE saith, Behold, the days come, saith The Lord, when I will make a new covenant with The House of Israel and with The House of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith The Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with The House of Israel after those days, saith The Lord; I will put MY laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts, and I will be to them a GOD, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know The Lord: for all shall know ME, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, (conditions in the soul) and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.”

When a Born again Christian becomes persuaded that it is impossible to somehow break this new covenant and lose their salvation, they begin a new phase of their relations with GOD. They begin to see with greater Spiritual clarity not just what the scriptures are saying on the surface but they become privy to the three deeper, Spiritual understandings and applications buried like treasure under that first, physical, surface understanding. That surface, physical understanding is there for all the world to see. This is the reason why there are so many different denominations, with all of their erroneous interpretations in this world; because man is basing a lot of his understanding of the Kingdom of heaven upon what his finite understanding can see on the physical contextual surface. GOD desires that each of HIS Children learn how to develop their own personal relationship with the indwelling Holy Spirit so that they can experience that new life and learn how to get their Doctrine directly. The best ways to do such is through praise and worship, prayer, and interaction with the Word of GOD. Unless the changes are made by the Holy Spirit in our inner man, there can be no genuine sanctification unto Fruitfulness. Those who know this, know this. Others who do not have this understanding may even try to disagree with this Spiritual truth, but they cannot get around it. That is because the Holy Spirit is in complete charge of all genuine sanctification and Fruitfulness. Buried like treasure under that physical, surface contextual is the first Spiritually revealed Eternal, contextual understanding and application. Under that first Spiritual layer is the Everlasting understanding and application. And then thirdly, under that second Spiritual layer is a personal understanding and application that is designed particularly to where we are at in our Spiritual Doctrine. Declaring the scriptures out loud is how we give the Holy Spirit the building materials HE needs to build our Spiritual house of Doctrine. We are responsible for cooperating in this building project. But we must understand that a great deal of our initial efforts to participate in this privileged opportunity is going to be spent on addressing the ill conditions of our mindscape before any serious construction can begin. Every single one of us will be dealing with a lifetime of clutter, garbage and ill conditions in our soul. Once, a Born again Christian has made up their mind to the verity of this Kingdom process and moves pro-actively in Faith by doing such on purpose, they can expect to witness changes unto more and more righteous conditions. Now we are experiencing the genuine quacking that the Jews under the Law were struggling so hard to accomplish. In fact, in this new covenant, there is no limit to this privilege. It is part of our inheritance of Everlasting Life. Everlasting Life is that higher plane of living, while in this physical world, influenced by the Holiness of GOD. Always remember that our Eternal Life in that dimension of Heaven is our possession and has gone on ahead of us, outside of our reach, waiting for us to come into it. For the elect, who are the Born again Spiritual citizens of that Kingdom of GOD, our committed sin and the stored up conditions of unrighteousness have no power whatsoever to affect our salvation that has gone on ahead of us into Heaven and kept secure in the authority of GOD.

In John 10:27-31 Jesus, Himself tells us, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I give unto them Eternal Life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand. My Father, which gave them Me is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”

We are, right now, fully vested citizens of Heaven, and because of such, we are perfectly secure in that citizenship with the right to inherit Everlasting Life within our being and enlarge the borders of our tent. I tell you this Kingdom of GOD truth to encourage you in your Spiritual endeavors. We can gain right now Spiritual rewards that we will benefit from for all of Eternity. Sad to say, that many genuinely eligible Christians have no clue about the importance of the time we have here on Earth.

1st Peter 1:2-5 says, “Elect according to the foreknowledge of GOD the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and speinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:

Grace unto you, and peace be multiplied.

Blessed be the GOD and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ, which according to HIS abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in Heaven for you, WHO are kept by the Power of GOD through Faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

These scriptures are addressing both, the initial Sanctification we receive when we invite Jesus into our heart as Savior and the process of sanctification by the Holiness of GOD. Sanctification by the Holiness of GOD the only genuine obedience that can manifest the Fruit of the Spirit and the Glory of GOD. Because we are the Elect citizens Christ Jesus has given us this well that is our lively hope of experiencing that springing up within of those living waters unto Everlasting Life that Jesus spoke of in John 4:13 and 14.

“Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; But the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into Everlasting Life.”

In John 6:27 Jesus said, Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto Everlasting Life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath GOD the Father sealed.

In this scripture Jesus is telling us to focus our efforts, and intentions, and motivations on laboring for that meat that endureth unto Everlasting Life. Our Everlasting Life begins the instant that gain possession of Eternal Life when we become a citizen of the Kingdom of heaven. This understanding in Kingdom Truth is why that the greater part of Christianity is confused about what GOD is responsible for and what HE has given us responsibility for. My sin cannot touch my citizenship of Heaven or my Eternal Life forever with GOD, or my Salvation from Hell. That power was destroyed by Christ when He died in my place on that cruel cross of Calvary. But my sin can destruction in my soul and affect my prosperity of inheriting Everlasting Life and progress in sanctification and Spiritual maturity which steals my potential in ministry. Remember: we gain citizenship and heritage of Eternal Life with GOD in the death of Christ and now as a fully vested citizen of Heaven we gain our Newness of abundant life through our inheritance of Everlasting Life by the resurrection of Christ Jesus from the dead. As we learn how to inherit Everlasting Life all that we gain we carry across Jordan on into merging with our Eternal Life forever in our citizenship ever more.

One day, everything that we did in cooperation by aligning ourselves in the sanctification of the Holy Spirit will merge with our future inheritance of Eternal Life in the celestial realm of Heaven and have great reward. Remember that Everlasting Life is that higher plane of existing being influenced by GOD that we can experience while we are here in earth.

Those who are not the Elect, who are still under the wrath of GOD will go on into Eternity and experience that spiritual, everlasting, punishment alone separate from GOD in that domain of the spiritually dead in the agonies of Hell. If we do not become a Spiritual reborn citizen of the Kingdom of GOD while we are here in earth we will not inherit Eternal Life with GOD there after death. If we are spiritually dead here we will experience spiritual death there.

Everything we do here, as we inherit our citizenship rights will bless us both here and will affect our blessing on into that reward of Everlasting Life in Heaven.

In John 6:63 Jesus tells us that, “It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life.”

That process of sanctification is the only obedience that can manifest the Fruit of the Spirit that will Glorify GOD. We, within our own abilities of discipline will continue to reap corruption and leave destruction in our wake. This is exactly why sanctification is so important and why the enemy has been working towards keeping this truth away from confused Christians. We must learn the all new ways of living life in the Spirit. We must become pro-active about our soul hygiene because it is what GOD has given us responsibility for.

First of all, it takes out the trash. It addresses the garbage we have been dumping into our inner soul for years. It addresses the ill conditions that are only fit for weeds, briars and brambles. It cleans up the rockiness in our soul. It plows up that old, hardened ground and gets it ready for casting seed into our garden. As it removes the weeds and rocks it uncovers issues we have long buried and forgotten. It heals the nicks and cuts in our soul. It gives good seed for a potential good harvest of the Fruit of the Spirit. And it gives the Holy Spirit the building materials from which to build our Spiritual house of Doctrine; in which, to store up our Spiritual Treasures new and old we gain, which we are to share with others who are bound be error and confusion. It is a step of Faith unto FAITH, whereby we interact with the Holiness of GOD. When we persevere in declaring the scriptures out loud we are interacting with the Holiness of GOD. Because of the ill conditions of our soul and that Sin Nature, there is a grey buffer zone that everyone must push through in perseverance before they can clearly see and manifest the reality of this Kingdom principle. Nobody happens upon this principle and its benefits by accident. Some have even done this on occasion, but the very few have pressed through that grey zone of the Sin Nature by perseverance unto Fruitful conditions. And those very few who may have experienced change do not see with Spiritual clarity this hidden truth behind the sanctification process. I know many good Christians, but I know very few indeed who are manifesting the genuine Glory of GOD. I include myself in that, and know for a fact that the only reason I have anything is because of GOD having mercy upon my sinful soul.

Like I said earlier; once a Christian is persevering in declaring the scriptures out loud, it begins to enhance every other walk of Faith we engage in, in our life. It enhances our Praise and worship. It empowers how we pray. It takes fasting to a whole new level of power. It quickens and makes genuine changes from the inside out. It is the surest way of sanctification; that we cannot overdo or plumb the depths of. There are no limits. But there is a strategy to it. You can do this anytime that you decide to. Declaring the scriptures out loud is an act of Faith unto that FAITH that was once delivered unto the early church saints. It can do wonders for those who have mental problems. It is a method whereby every Christian can begin to practice proper Spiritual mental hygiene.

I am an end product of everything that I have experienced and this is influencing my motives, my emotions, my attitudes, and my will. In fact, all of this stuff has formed my conscience; and how I react or respond to life and other people. This, along with the wounds iniquity, trespasses and traumas stored up in there are the root causes of my anger and my confusion. Most self-help programs teach you only how to cope with, control and get along with the way our emotional condition expresses itself outward to this world. Declaring the scriptures out loud gives us the ability to start doing something about the root causes of our issues. If we do persevere, in declaring the scriptures out loud we can expect this interaction to quicken us unto becoming genuine doers of the Word.

If we do not become pro-active we can expect these deep soul roots to begin putting pressure on our chemical and electrical balances in our brain. If we do not listen to those signals that our anger is sending us we can expect that situation to start manifesting physical symptoms outward in our body. I will not go deeply into that scenario but needless to say that many Christians are at the mercy of those root sources that they could even now, very easily be something about by stepping out in Faith by declaring the Word of GOD out loud. This Christian life is about Faith and GOD has given to all of these ways so that we can interact with HIS Holiness. When we declare the Word, that Sword of the Spirit becomes a laser scalpel in the expert hands of the best doctor in all of creation. This gives us new life. This gives us sanctification. This is genuine healing unto wholeness. I am in no way saying that this step of Faith will cure all of your issues. Some of us have done ourselves a mischief that we must bear. But it is guaranteed to only do you good unto the wisdom of growing Faith if you persevere. Declaring the scriptures out loud is talking to the Holy Spirit. Declaring scriptures can be a prayer, and a Praise and worship. By claiming our inheritance we Glorify GOD which pleases HIM as we employ and enjoy HIS provisions.

It is an all new way of this new covenant that we are a part of. It is a sure way to begin inheriting the Kingdom of GOD within. It is interacting with the Holiness of GOD. It is how we can encourage the Holy Spirit to make genuine Spiritual changes within us whereby we become a manifestation of the Word of GOD. Now we are being what the Word describes instead of emulating and imitating what it says on the surface. Declaring the Word of GOD out loud is sowing in the Spirit. When we declare the scriptures out loud we are inheriting Everlasting Life and can expect to experience new things of the Spirit that are of the Kingdom of GOD. But, if you choose to live in outright rebellion you can expect this sanctification process to be inhibited until you repent and leave that sin behind. But, you can never lose your salvation.

We have every right to the cleansing of our minds and souls with the washing of the water of the Word. The very best time to declare the Word out loud is just before we lie down for sleep. That way we cleanse our conscious mind of the negative contents before it gets dumped into our soul when we fall asleep. In reality, we get a day ahead. We are cleansing ourselves of corruption and getting ourselves ready for Fruitfulness. We are becoming a vessel of honor for GOD to use in ministry.

And as great as all of that is, I want to show you exactly how to get your very own understanding of the Kingdom of GOD interpretation of any scripture directly from the Holy Spirit.

This is a way to step up that process of the Word abiding in me. This is the way for me to cooperate with the Holy Spirit in building my house of Doctrine.

This is the way to memorize scripture and receive the engrafted Word directly from the Holy Spirit. There is actually a parable in the Word that tells of this process of receiving Kingdom truth and treasures right now, directly from GOD; to bless our existence and ministry while are here: and beyond in that celestial dimension.

This is a way to step up our efforts to hide the Word in our heart.

Right after Jesus had asked those listening to Him if they understood all of His parables, in Matthew 13:52 it is recorded, “Then said He unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the Kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasures things new and old.”

A scribe is someone who had the ability to read and write. Some scribes were hired to make copies of the different scriptures available. They could make a decent living from making copies of different Books of the Old Testament like Isaiah and Jeremiah. They knew the scriptures and had a great majority of them memorized; but they did not have the indwelling Holy Spirit abiding within. We, the Elect, because we are Born again citizens of heaven have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit. When we become a scribe the indwelling Holy Spirit can give us what they could not attain and have as their own.

Let me explain. If I want to know the Kingdom of heaven understanding of any scripture, I can make a copy of that scripture. Do not overstep yourself and start doing two or three scriptures. Start with one scripture and persevere in scribing it over and over. Copy it over and over, going way past memorization until you can write it down anytime you choose. As that scripture becomes a part of you, the more you scribe it; the more you show the Holy Spirit that you are serious about your desire to understand that scripture. This is not a game. This is me studying to show myself a workman, who desires to rightly divide the Word of Truth. Remember that only the Holy Spirit can enlighten our minds to the Kingdom Truth of the scriptures. Of course, once the Holy Spirit has given you that Truth, it will permeate throughout the Doctrine of your soul until you are more and more becoming a product of that Word. This is the Word progressively saving our soul more and more in sanctification.

It can be done in printing or cursive writing. I switch it up and do both at the same sitting. I even try different color inks for the variety but once I start, I will copy that scripture for the rest of my life. I cannot count the times that the Holy Spirit has spoken directly to my mind Kingdom instruction and Truth. On several occasions the Holy Spirit has given me what the apostle James called the engrafted word.

James 1:21 “Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.” There is an occurrence that happens to every Christian no matter where they may be in sanctification. I have talked of this previously but it will help to address it here, again so that there will be no confusion between it and the engrafted word which is so much higher. This previous occurrence happens as we are reading along in scripture and even though we know that we have read those scriptures so many times before, only this time the scripture seems to jump off of the page into our understanding. And while this occurrence should indicate to us some kind of previous spiritual change or growth within our understanding; it is not the engrafted word addressed in James 1:21. While declaring the Word of GOD out loud cleanses and sanctifies small almost minute portions in our inner man, the engrafted word gives a greater portion of understanding on the level of a principle with full understanding of its application that removes any previous error and replaces with Kingdom truth. This is correction and Doctrine. It is almost like having a window installed in the wall of your house of Doctrine. Once I have scribed a scripture way past memorization then I will concentrate on a second scripture. Patience is the key here. There have been occasions when that I was given the deeper Kingdom understanding in a short period of time. And then, other occasions it would be two, or three and even up to 12 months later before I was given the complete Kingdom knowledge engrafted into my Doctrine in understanding and function. But, what is so awesome about the ongoing process is the fact that the Holy Spirit is going to be giving me what I need in Kingdom understanding, preparing me and getting me ready to receive the enlightenment of whatever scripture I might be diligently scribing. It is all an ongoing process and the more effort I put into it the more I am given. The biggest issue with Christianity is the lack of Holy Spirit direction. So many Christians are dryed up inside and have no Spiritual flow because they do not know how to even participate in the Kingdom. This is how we are healed and converted from our old ways unto the all new ways of living life in the Spirit.

Jesus said in Matthew 13:9-15, “Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. And the disciples came, and said unto Him, Why speakest Thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

And in them is fulfilled the prophesy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.”

I have even had the occasion where the Holy Spirit told me that what I was scribing was not in the original texts. So many times the Holy Spirit would fill in an understanding from a scripture that I was not currently scribing; because it was the next brick I needed before HE gave me the engrafted word from the scripture I happen to be concentrating on at the time. The end.
