What if one day you got a revelation of who you really are?
What if one day you got a revelation of how much your creator really loves you?
What if one day you got a revelation of the fact that you don't have to live "under" your circumstances?
What if one day you got a revelation that you don't have to live life afraid?
What would happen if you knew you didn't have to be depressed?
Or what would happen if you knew you didn't have to worry?
Or what if you didn't have to believe the doctor's report you got today, that you had six months to live?
What if you knew it was God's will for you to be well?
What if you knew it was God's will for you to be prosperous?
What if you knew it was God's will for you to be a victor, a winner, and not a victim?
What if you knew that God is a Good God, and He NEVER CHANGES?
Well, I have been led to tell you about these things...because I have gotten this revelation and I am passing it on to you, for you to pass on to someone else.
I thought I was to write a book, and then God showed me a bigger picture. He said to use the internet, and start a small group study regarding these truths, and bring God's children into the knowledge and wisdom they need for these crazy times. There is so much pain and fear in the world right now that God's followers must unite and tell the world the real truth and the GOOD NEWS of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are not to fear. Do not fear is written 365 times in the bible. Check it out! Once for every day in a year!
When you are in Christ, you are victors, not victims. So many organized religions have so many false beliefs that need to be put to rest. I intend to help with the killing of these "sacred cows" that make the Word of God of no effect in your everyday lives.
The Word of God is real, and so is God. John 1:1 says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". It goes on to say ALL THINGS were made through Him. More on that later.
I took a chance at believing this, and over the past several years, God has made His PRESENCE known to me in more ways than I can count! It all starts with knowing who He is, and who you are "in Him". To be "in Him" you have to be saved. When you are "saved" you are "born again". That means your "spirit" is born again. We are made of Spirit, mind and soul. Your Spirit is your inner "born again" man, but your mind, and soul (will and emotions, or flesh) is continually being renewed as you learn and grow. You have to CHANGE your mind. (Another word for changing your mind, is to repent). You have to begin seeking and BELIEVING what God and His word says about you!
In Romans 12:2 the bible says, "Do not be conformed to this world; but be TRANSFORMED, by the "renewal of your mind", that you may PROVE what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God. Renewing your mind simply means believing who God says you are in His word, not how you picture yourself.
The mere reading, hearing, studying and/or meditating on the words in this book CAN and WILL change your life! They are alive! If you don't believe it, it won't work for you, so you can just stop reading for now.
In Joshua 1:8 it says, "This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall MEDITATE on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then it will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success." You don't meditate on it to have good success in life, but when you do meditate on it, good success follows you. It's a bi-product of right believing.
Back to making the Word of no effect. First you have to know that there is POWER in the Word of God. In Hebrews 4 and verse 12 it says, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than ANY two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joint and marrow, and IS a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. That scripture says a lot more than just the power of God's word. But Mark 7:13 says, "making the Word of God of no effect through your "tradition", which ye have delivered; and many such things do ye."
We have made the powerful Word of God have NO EFFECT by hanging on to "religious traditions" and beliefs that are not true, and that cancel out the Word's effect on our lives. Believing right, receiving, listening and trusting is the key.
So if God's word is so POWERFUL and IT IS TRUE, they why aren't we seeing miraculous results in people's lives? Is it God's fault? Is it our fault? God's word IS our IMMUNITY. From the enemy, from disease, from defeat. It is crucial that the Word of God becomes the foundation of your belief system. (And it's amazing how He speaks personally right to us when we hear/read it.) Whatever way works for you, just get it inside of you. It is POWER.
Well, chew on that until we meet again! And practice listening for a "still small voice". He will guide you, if you allow Him too.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and it has brought up many questions. I will be writing part two very soon!
