Offering of All 01

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. 2 Timothy 2:21

Within the heavenlies are many spiritual blessings that the Father has given us through our High Priest. Our High Priest brings us unto the Father and we learn and know that He blesses and keeps us.

In our High Priest the Father’s love, mercy and grace is given to keep us.

By the High Priest, we are able to enter the holy of holiest and behold the Father face to face. It is by the High Priest that the Father is able to fill our empty, clean vessels with His Holy Spirit.

For through our obedience to Jesus name baptism we are cleansed and fit for His indwelling.

Our High Priest has opened the way that we may receive every part of the blessing, a divine reality, and a living experience in the power of a life that abides continually. By these blessings, we impart back to Him our offering. It is through our offering that we acknowledge to God His right to all.

We do all our love for our LORD in that we surrender all we have, all we are, as belonging to Him; to the willing sacrifice of all He asks or needs for His service.

The connection between the offering of ourselves and the blessings are closer than we know.

Are we willing to give all that we are at His disposal? The more we forsake of ourselves the richer will our experience be of the fullness and the power that our LORD can impart to us.

How much are you willing to offer?

How much of your life, time and resources do you give to the LORD?

What you give is what is and shall be given back to you.

In the things of God a tender conscience and a surrendered will are more than the highest intellect.

Order

Order what a thought, what a word.

God is a God of order.

The sun and moon and all the planets show us perfect order. If one planet is out the length of your cell phone everything would crash into the sun.

Such an awesome display of order.

Now look at a new order, a Word (command) order.

Melchizedek is a priesthood of ORDER!

Jesus Christ was made a priest forever, after the ORDER of Melchizedek.

In like manner, in the resurrection, every man comes up in his OWN ORDER.

"But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

But EVERY MAN IN HIS OWN ORDER: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at His coming.

Then cometh the end...all things subdued...God all in all." 1 Corinthians  15:2O, 22-24, 28

Putting on of Christ

For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Galatians 3:27

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. Romans 13:14

The putting on of Christ is to allow His power to conform one into the pure and holy life He lived while He walked in the flesh.

The putting on of Christ is to allow His power to take us beyond this realm of sin and death and into a realm of Life, where we shall have joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, and temperance.

For than we are seated in heavenly places.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7

They that are not born again of water and Spirit and feeding upon His Word and allow His power to change them are they that are experiencing all this realm of death has to offer.

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. Galatians 6:8

LORD said unto my Lord

“The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.” Psalms 110:1


LORD is the Spirit of God without flesh, for God is Spirit and Lord is God manifested in the flesh.



While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.

He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?   

And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions. Matt 22:41-46

When the Spirit of God came into the world without measure in a body of flesh as a man, then the Son of God came into existence as the Christ.

Again the question ——> “While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, Saying, What think ye of Christ (Messiah)? Whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David.” Matthew 22:41,42

The question is “whose son is Christ (Greek) Messiah (Hebrew).



Now when studying the Word one will see and know Jesus is the son of David according to the flesh as a man. Yet, Jesus after hearing their answer points them to the glorification of the Christ sitting at the right hand of God.

“He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?” Matthew 22:43,44

This is a sonship question concerning Christ, the Messiah.

David said “the LORD” which is the Spirit of God as (Spirit without a body of flesh and blood as a man) said unto “my Lord” (the Spirit without measure in a body of flesh and blood as a man, the Christ); the Messiah to sit on LORD’S right hand until his enemies were at his footstool.

Now Deep calls to deep.



Matthew 22:43,44 is referring to the Messiah AFTER glorification, sitting on the right hand of God after his resurrection.

There also appears to be two Lord’s here, with one speaking to the other.

Now the Pharisees thought the Christ was the son of David ONLY and not the Son of God.

However Jesus quotes David as calling him Lord, (Christ) confessing the Son of God which is the Spirit of God that he possesses without measure in a body of flesh as a man of Adam; thus called the Son of God.

Christ is the Father as God or Spirit without measure indwelling a body of flesh as a man that has been glorified to as to be sit down at the right hand of God being made both Lord and Christ.

This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. Act 2:32, 33

Christ is also the son of David according to the flesh as a man or lineage of David, for Jesus is both the root (Father) and the offspring (son) of David. Revelation 22:16.

Jesus emphasized the truth of Christ or Messiah being the Son of God glorified to the right hand of God, meaning all power in heaven and earth was given to him being glorified with God’s own Self.

Peter having this revelation also of the Son of God made the following statement: “Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. For David is not ascended into the heavens; but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Acts 2:33-36.

(QUOTE) God made Jesus both Lord and Christ, not that he wasn’t Lord and Christ before glorification in vocation, but had to obtain it in destination, being destined to come into the world, die, and then enter into glory. What glory did Jesus as a man enter into? Jesus as the Spirit of God without measure by a self imposed limitation in being made a man, and fashioned as a man, did not use His glory as God, but suffered, was tested, tried, tempted in all points like all mankind as a man of Adam in the days of his flesh. After fulfilling all things for redemption and salvation for mankind by his death on the cross of Calvary, then He as the Spirit of God raised his body of flesh from the tomb, taking back the glory that he had put off by abasing himself in being made a man, being fashioned as a man of Adam.

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. Micah 5:2

Volunteers or Chosen

There IS NO VOLUNTEERS in the bible only the called and chosen!

Look and show me if Moses volunteer for service. Or Gideon .... Jeremiah ..... Isaiah .... or did any of the disciples volunteer for service?

Not one!

They were all called and chosen by Jesus Himself.

EVEN SAUL was called, For Jesus said ---->'He is a CHOSEN VESSEL unto Me to bear My name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: for I will show him how great things he must suffer for My name's sake.' 

What a lie that has spread across the land that ministers of God are to volunteer themselves for His service. Time for the chosen to arise so that all will see the kingdom of God IS AT HAND!

The anger of the LORD will not turn back
until he has executed and accomplished
the intents of his heart.
In the LATTER DAYS you will understand it clearly.

“I did not send the prophets,
yet they ran;
I did not speak to them,
yet they prophesied.
   
But if they had stood in my council,
then they would have proclaimed my words to my people,
and they would have turned them from their evil way,
and from the evil of their deeds. Jeremiah 23:20-23



Prophets, Pastors, Teachers, Bishops, Ministers …. what title a man sticks upon His chest is but one of His own doing.

Opens the eyes of the heart wider to the Light of ——> Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
   
And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU (CHOSE YOU FOR MY WILL): depart from me, ye that work iniquity (rebellion). Matt 7:22,23

To Hear His Voice!

And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an UNDERSTANDING HEART; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. 1 Kings 3:11-13

What a request from Solomon to have a “understanding heart to judge thy people”

A understanding heart is a hearing heart.

The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.

The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back. Isaiah 50:4-5

HE WAKENS MY EAR TO HEAR as those that are willing to be taught.

My Lord Jesus blessings unto you indeed for the blood bought ear of your servants that desire to be awake in this hour to do thy Word!

My sheep HEAR my voice, and I KNOW them, and they FOLLOW me: …. John 10:27

To hear is to HEARKEN, which is a responsive action to one's hearing.



The ear within is listening for Him and not the voice of self.

The ear within hears what the Spirit has to say unto us today and they that do hear WILL NOT HARDEN THEIR HEARTS.



For they that hear are they that KNOW Him or they that have absolute knowledge of His voice without doubts or questionings. 



Much closer .... Much higher .... Much Deeper, than any other walk for this walk is pure communion that sustains and enriches them day by day to follow Him and Him alone; for they know not the voice of strangers.

One will see the voice of the Shepherd is the Spirit within and the now stranger is the carnal mind that needs to be transformed to hear and know His will.

But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.
Job 32:8

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age,
even those who by reason of use
have their senses exercised
to discern both good and evil. Hebrews 5:12-14

Transformed

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:1, 2

To be "conformed to this world" is to offer one's self to its calls.

Be going to school is to sacrifice oneself to it so that one will pass the grade.

To go to work is to sacrifice one's self to the job and will reap the reward by a pay check.

That is being "conformed to this world."

To offer one's self as a "living sacrifice" in a holy way which is a set apart unto Him is to be transformed by the renewing of our mind so that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

A truly living sacrifice unto Him will make that one a vessel for Him to use for His will.
A conformed to this world Christian is but one living in rotten flesh.

A transformed Christian is one that is consumed by the fire of an all consuming God to be a sweet savour unto Him.

Out From Under the Law

As I look about I see millions dying in war torn countries; dying with no food, no hope, no government, and most of all a empty hand from the church.

I look beyond the frame work of my house and see vast numbers in need in many countries and I feel as if how, HOW does this Truth reach the amount of hurting.

A empty hand is not what He has, nor His priesthood.

And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and put the bonnets on them: and the priest's office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons. Ex 29:9

The Hebrew word "consecrate" is very unique. It means "to fill the hand."

It shows that God put within the priesthood everything it needs to do the work of God. The very power of God has been given to the priests that they would minister both unto God and to men.

I've read and talked about it many times in wonder. However, my wonder will be seen for His Truth comes alive at a time to fill my hand for the many I shall be able to reach out to. Philip has been my wonder and I've said that God did it for him and us to see, He can do it for us and others to see.

After all we are talking about God!

And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. But Philip was found at Azotus (STRONGHOLD): and PASSING THROUGH HE PREACHED in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.

A son of God knows "consecration is what God does, and not what I do!"

See consecration is coming to God with empty hands, confessing our weakness, and our inability to do anything, then letting God do the rest. We been taught different by many pastors and teachers and yet it is odd that Paul's walk did not line up with what has been taught today.

And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 1 Cor 2:3

Ohhhhhhhhh what Paul wrote that hmmmmmm YES!

And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom,

WHAT! Paul you were not a big show boat on a TV station screaming for more money more people to consecration themselves unto God. You speech and preaching did not have words that brought many to repentance?

Gosh Paul what did you have that you were able to do God's will?

"in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." 1 Cor 2:4,5

Enough said there to show this gospel is but OF God and NOT of man. If your hand is empty and you need tactics to try and get something in it I would question if it is YOUR hand and NOT His!
God do this and I promise to do that. God do that and I promise to do this. I promise to pray more, fast more, work more for you, read more ..... reconsecration what a sin on our part.
 
"And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for Thou west slain, and hast REDEEMED (purchased) us to God by Thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and hast made us unto our God KINGS AND PRIESTS: and we shall reign on the earth" Revelation 5:9-10

As the REDEEMED of the Lord I been bought with a price and as so I am consecrated unto Him. When I serve myself, my pleasures, my wants, my desires I am consecrated unto myself.

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 1 Cor 6:20

Truth BE SEEN ----->God requires our all because He has purchased and paid for us!

"But when the fullness of 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." Galatians 4:4-5

The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 1 Corinthians 15:56

If you wonder about this law that we have been redeemed from look back to Adam who was told NOT to bring himself under it.

"But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." Genesis 2:17

That law kept humankind trapped until the Son came!

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1 Peter 1:18,19

No longer am I under the law of sin and death for I have been purchased with the blood of Christ so that I may not be a possession of God's!

I now serve the LIVING God and not the fear of death!

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. Hebrews 2:14,15

Thank you JESUS!!!!!!

Sand Castles

Many build sand castles on the shores of the ocean and not realize they must dig down in the sand to find the Rock to anchor their soul to Him. 

He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. Luke 6:48

In their prideful ways they pat themselves on their back and let others pat them, admiring their pretty sand castle.

So busy chasing, so busy doing, they think its all God's will; but all the while they miss the truth it is but a sand castle of themselves built upon the sand.


But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great. Luke 6:49

Ten Virgins

Today my heart is upon Matthew 25:1-13

In my studies on the Royal Priesthood and my High Priest Jesus I started to hear pieces of this parable come alive in a different way and I like to share it.

To begin with "Ten" represents man's responsibility to keeping something and "Five" symbolizes God's grace, goodness and favor toward humans

Oil is not the Holy Ghost (fire) but the Word of God. The Holy Ghost needs oil to continue to burn from.

Now I always have raised eyebrows and again I will. 

In my studies I have noticed fire came from heaven to consume, it did not need any product of man’s doing to start the fire for the fire was.

The fire is a consuming fire, as the oil is not a consuming product as the fire; but a product to be consumed by the fire.

Now manna was said to taste like “fresh oil” (Numbers 11:7-9) and is the bread of heaven.


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:1,14

I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:51,63.

O taste and see that the LORD is good: … Psalm 34:8

There is much that can be posted here on the oil but I just wanted to look at the first time the fire, the Holy Ghost came upon humans.

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. Act 2:3

They received the oil, the Word and were able now to be vessels of God’s to have His Holy Ghost upon and in them.

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. Matt 25:1



The ten virgins were they that awaited for the arrival of the Word of life to come.

They had a responsibility to keep and as so went forth with their lamps to meet the bridegroom.


And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Matt 25:2


Because men are not stable in their ways, God’s grace will be their helping hand, why the number five.

They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. Matt 25:4

The key here is the wise had oil in their vessels. The vessels here represents the “mind” and any that have their mind upon the Word of God are seen as wise.

While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. Matt 25:5

The word “slumbered” means = the state of consciousness between being awake and being asleep.

God has many times appeared "In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumbering upon the bed" that He may withdraw man from his purpose to God’s purpose.

The word “slept” implies a giving in to the body, being imperfect and a laying down action like a dead man rather than a standing up action of a man awake (alive)

Now this parable is taught as the second coming of Christ (Rapture). I am going to use religious terms here for space and time. The parable is taught that when Jesus comes for His Bride (Church) it will be the end of the Church age and the marriage will be.



After studying it I will say no that can’t be. 



Let me explain why ….. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Matt 25:6



The cry that the bridegroom is coming AT midnight. Midnight is the turning point when one day is ended and another begins. Midnight is often compared to the time when this life is ended and eternity begins.

That is indeed when Jesus was born in this world at night time.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by NIGHT. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
   
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Luke 2:9-12


And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. Luke 2:16

   
And the light shineth in darkness;  …. John 1:5

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. Daniel 7:13



The bridegroom comes at midnight to them that are waiting for the kingdom of heaven. This is the coming of the Son to the nation of Israel who was given the oil concerning the return of the fire.

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. Matt 25:7



Virgins represent the chosen ones which was the nation of Israel.

Now to trim THEIR lamps is a taught talent. See a lamp trimmer had the needed skills to trim a wick in such a way that it would burn evenly, without hot spots, so that it would not need attention again for some time. A poorly trimmed wick creates a flame which is dim and smokey. A properly trimmed wick would come to a rounded point, and should be wedge shaped. When lit, the wick should burn cleanly all the way up to the highest flame it can make.



God has always wanted a priesthood and He had prepared one for His High Priest but when He came only 5 were wise in that they had oil IN their vessels, for the “the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.” Matt 25:8



What had tripped me up for sooooooo many years is this statement “…. go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.” Matt 25:9



I’ve wonder and wonder how anyone could buy the Holy Ghost. What can be used to get the gift of God? Until now I understand they are told to go buy the WORD.

Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. Proverbs 23:23

“…thy word is truth.” John 17:17



There is only one way, one offer God will accept in return for His Truth.

“love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,”



“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Matt 22:37



You can’t use gold, sliver or paper money to buy truth you must LOVE it and by loving it you will receive it, belief it, mediate upon it and allow it to expression Himself through you as a vessel of Him.

These 10 virgins are the nation of Israel at the time of the coming of the Son of God not the time when the day star shall arise in our hearts.
