Peace, power, and purpose found at a cross

 

Peace Power and Purpose

 

When Saul was changed into Paul, it was a radical transformation, causing even a change in location of living for a season to deal with such a change. He not only changed Lifestyles but absolute way of living. From legal to grace, from trying to being, from never achieving to becoming, from living up to unachievable goals to being the goal……..

As he traveled and preached this was the expectation of a “conversion”, a person of GRACELATIO;. That they would be transformed, changed, holy, living with Peace Power and purpose.

Peace; they would know that Christ, the Finished work of the cross made them holy, included them, cause righteousness, Transformed their way of thinking and life, they now had a peace with God that passed understanding, instead of working for favor they are favored, instead of sacrifices there was an atonement. Peace meant they were good with God… now instead of guilt and shame there was peace and power.

Power: power over sin, power over sickness, power to live Holy, power to think right, to make choices, power to live with grace for others and themselves, power to overcome, power of faith that came with Gracelation, that before was requirement now faith in action…which produced purpose.

Purpose: no longer just the priest, the pastor the leader operated in faith signs and miracles, but each individual. They could share grace and faith, They participate and serve the way (the church) without manipulation or requirement, They found in living with God they finally found the destiny purpose individually of their reason for living…

 

Paul only saw this kind of conversion, expected it, to the point of when he found a church in Corinth that a man was not living holy, after God, in the church, he said remove him so He can hopefully find his was to righteousness. We are not doing this today, and I don’t really advocate it, but we need to point out that Paul had an expectation of transformation that came by leaving one form of religion with God and entering into a new Way, grace.

 

Following the way, Jesus, was not a new religion, but a new life! Today we have made becoming a christian a cerebral experience, knowledge. But Jesus and Paul preached and transformation, new creation, caused by the cross, the atonement, a gracelation experience.

 

How do we do this now… now that we have been preaching and teaching a mix of law and grace? SLOWLY! We do not want to harm believers….. we do not want to cause any to stumble.. but we must start leading them into the fullness. I had a pastor ask me, “How do I know who already has been transformed in my church by gracelation?” I said, “That is easy, you know who is committed to the church without asking. they ones who pray without fasting, the ones who have peace and rest in their relationship with God, the ones who give not out of any reason except they are givers. You know who have been transformed.” He said but that is so few! I replied then you know the reason you need to begin your work….. training….

 

God is good and given new life!!!!

What if??????

 

 

What if i told you of a God, who sacrificed Himself to set you free from even the very law He created?

What if I told you the creator of the universe was happy, loved you and had a destiny for you?

What if I told you the one who formed you want and had healed you?

What if I told you there is nothing that can separate you from the Love of God even your sin, and mistakes?

What if I told you about a God who did not want to start a religion, but instead wanted an open a relationship with you?

What is I told you about a Supreme Being, God, who is not upset, nor is He surprised by you?

What if I told you about a Loving God, who is like a Father, filling you with His very essence, His Spirit, so you could act and be like Him?

What if I told you about a God, who Is Good…. and anything His enemies throw at you He can turn for Good?

What if i told you about a God who loves His enemies?

What if I told you about a God that speaks to us?

What if I told you about a God who ………?

What if??????

 

God is all these things… Church should be about joy, hope, Grace, not manipulation, entertainment…. but encouragement, training equipping and fellowship…

Our lives should be lived out loud, with joy, peace, grace and joy… knowing the KING is Poppa, and He is for us… and we are forgiven…… no more separation….

200 saved, miracles happening daily

Image

In a matter of months, after Peter preached a sermon and 3000 were saved, miracles and ministry increased to such a point, people were being healed by shadows, dead raised, and it was so much that the leaders said, we cannot feed the people food, the job never gets done because of the miracles taking place…. let us appoint others to do the feeding ministry… one such guy Stephen, he started doing what he had witness the leaders doing… serving food preaching grace, healing the sick to the point he was killed for his faith before any of the other leaders….

Now, let us move to today…. The church is huge in numbers but numb in supernatural activity… we do church really good, entertainment is high priority, getting people involved in serving the church, tithing, … but true discipleship is rare…. but it is from the head down….

How many leaders, Pastors have raised the dead? Seen a man get out of a wheel chair, not in church but a bar? How many strippers have they rescued?  and how is their Grace message?  Today we examine your degrees, books authored, slick presentation…. But I would rather stay biblical… signs and wonders will follow those that believe… leaders should lead in this area!!!! Then when they say to the people go and do as I do, they won’t think entertainment, but miracles!!!

In the early church everyone had miracles… history reports of believers doing amazing things… and today we think God is moving if you can get 5000 people in a room! I have said this before, “If leadership was put in place by fruit, not degrees, nor charisma, the church would look differently, and Jesus would be viewed differently!”

Can a ministry have a large church… yes…. but it should, the people, walking in signs and wonders….. As you run a feeding ministry, heal the sick…. as you host training, equip the saints for the ministry… we should be creating a storm of Revival, not a meeting of Revival!

A Storm of revival…….. sound like a good promo!!!!

In the early church, those who had raised the dead were invited to cities and even countries, today we are viewed with skepticism and shunned!!!!!

Today people with miracles following are viewed as New age….. Grace message as Heresy….. The bible says beware of those who would change this message……

Better covenant

Image

This makes Jesus the guarantee of a far better way between us and God—one that really works! A new covenant. Hebrews 7:22


But Jesus’ priestly work far surpasses what these other priests do, since he’s working from a far better plan. If the first plan—the old covenant—had worked out, a second wouldn’t have been needed. But we know the first was found wanting, because God said, Heads up! The days are coming when I’ll set up a new plan for dealing with Israel and Judah. I’ll throw out the old plan I set up with their ancestors when I led them by the hand out of Egypt. They didn’t keep their part of the bargain, so I looked away and let it go. This new plan I’m making with Israel isn’t going to be written on paper, isn’t going to be chiseled in stone; This time I’m writing out the plan in them, carving it on the lining of their hearts. I’ll be their God, they’ll be my people. They won’t go to school to learn about me, or buy a book called God in Five Easy Lessons. They’ll all get to know me firsthand, the little and the big, the small and the great. They’ll get to know me by being kindly forgiven, with the slate of their sins forever wiped clean. By coming up with a new plan, a new covenant between God and his people, God put the old plan on the shelf. And there it stays, gathering dust. Hebrews 8:6-13

He made a better way…. greater glory… for us…

If the old covenant produced a God who guided by night a pillar of fire, by day a cloud…. which caused the people to camp around the presence…. wouldn’t it makes sense for us to embrace the glory, presence that rest within us????? Oh, but that does not cause goose bumps every time… neither did living around a fire, cloud or tent… life went on… cooking, taking care of life…. but yet reminded of the over powering glory…. to a point where they said to the one who reflected the glory, Moses, put a veil over your face… your glowing!!!!

When are Christians going to see themselves as worthy? Able? Filled?

I hear all the time…”We pressed in and the glory came!” From where? Out of our bellies will flow rivers of glory……….. another silly works statement, “We fasted and God came…?” Really????? Why were you away from the bridegroom?
Jesus said, “When you’re celebrating a wedding, you don’t skimp on the cake and wine. You feast. Later you may need to pull in your belt, but this isn’t the time. As long as the bride and groom are with you, you have a good time. When the groom is gone, the fasting can begin. No one throws cold water on a friendly bonfire. This is Kingdom Come! Luke 5:34-35

He said the Kingdom has come…. His presence is in us… fills us to overflowing…. We only need to fast when we are away from the bridegroom, lost in the law….. God is not impressed with your ability to harm yourself, hurt yourself, abuse yourself… Even Paul said to Peter, if you preach circumcision go the whole way and cut it off! If you are going to be legalistic then be an on fire legalistic…

We possess His character, His DNA, we choose Him… which in turn causes our holiness, righteousness, overcoming ability…. We are a New creature with a better covenant… A new pillar of fire “One is coming greater that will baptize you in fire” Yes our baptism is fire, not a cloud or pillar, but we are dunked into Fire, possessing the Fire…. We are glory carriers….

Jesus open a new covenant, a better way… a path that breeds, causes, creates, Holiness not sin, faith, not works of approval or “drawing”, Righteousness not unrighteousness, open Heaven not a veil, We are possessed by his goodness.. in a greater measure…

So why don’t we see it in every church, every believer???? Because people perish by the lack of knowledge…. Preachers only preach to the knowledge that they have allowed themselves to learn… If learned the ways of law mixed with grace… or even law itself… this is what they produce…. If they are Calvin followers, they teach Calvin… If Religious traditions of men, then they produce religions of man…. But occasionally you find people who believe that the New covenant, sealed upon a cross is finished, and we are new… under new ways…. Will produce active, faith-walking, miracle producing, children of God, not servants… or slaves…. no longer manipulating, or building their own ego…. they will train and equip the saints for the work of the ministry and they will no longer be tossed around by every new fad, legal sermon, acts of the flesh… any longer…. but will walk in overcoming victory..

Shabba Glory…..

I am a 1%er ….. Read on…..

Image

1%

First let me say there are different types of 1% ers… in biker culture it is describes as the 1% of bikers who are criminals, outlaws, Hells angel types….

With Obama it is the extremely wealthy, stock market types…..

 

But I am not either one of those types of 1%er…….

 

I am the 1% of the church that does it….. Gets it…. lives it….

Now 1% of the church is a pretty large category full of people…. but let us see a list of behaviors of the 1% of the church…

They give up there free time to drive under a bridge and feed the homeless…

they give there last 200$ to the traveling missionary who speaks in their church…

they drive 400 miles to tallk to a person in need instead of a simple phone call…

they attend church, but they know they are the church not the place they attend…

They honor leaders of the church, out of respect even if they do not always agree with their sermons…

They go to bar to reach people…

They go to strip clubs to rescue other parents daughters..

They save up vacation time to spend a week at Sturgis giving out bibles on the street…

They pray for the sick…. and the sick are healed..

They cast out demons and the people are free… not just until the next meeting but forever…

They pray for the dead…. and the dead come alive….

They wake in the middle of the night praying for others and situations….

They study the word, because it is fun…pray because God speaks back… take communion because it reminds them of His joyous gift…

They will give you the shirt off their back….

They are not tossed about by every new fab in the church…

They carry extra bibles just in case you don’t have one…

They laugh a lot….

They are slow to condemn, or judge… because they understand the grace that was given them….

They might be found in a porno shop… stuffing tracts in the magazines….

They travel the world, not to be a tourist, but to spread the happy news….

They love their spouse and do not bring dishonor to them by looking at or for others….

They love God…. Worship deeply…. play hard… Roll hard…. and enjoy The Kingdom of God…

 

This is the 1%er of the church….. I wish it were the 99% but…….. I am asking you to join the 1% club…. write me … lets us start a movement…. of 1%er Christian… doing what the 99 will not do….

 

In Love and respect to all 1%er bikers…… no disrespect

In love and respect to all 1%er wall street types… no disrespect… send an offering….

 

But to the 99 % of the church…. Come on…. wake up…. this is the fun side of the country club…. This is the very work of Jesus…. Bamm Glory………

Looking forward what am I preparing for!

Image

Looking into the next few moths…… let me tell you what i am preparing for….

This is not a “thus saith the Lord” but a Heart preparation for what I sense as the things that are coming.

Ministry: I am preparing for a major break out of healings, signs, wonders… plus a major impartation of equipping the saints for the very ministry Jesus left for His disciples to do… in freedom not requirement… So as my ability to travel again arrives I am preparing for long, exciting, encountering meetings to see lives empowered by the Glory realm… through gracelation encounters….

Personally Increase in divine downloads… clarity of message…. and impacting daily encounters..

Israel:

Here i must first qualify…. I am not a “the sky is falling person”

But I am preparing my heart for war between Israel and Iran / Syria / and others

I believe it will start with an attack from Israel… Obama will try and avoid this and stay out of it… Iran and other Arab nation including Egypt will attack Israel… it will be as if ww3 has begun…

Simply prepare yourself for this conflict pray for all involved, and peace of Jerusalem… I see this happening before the November elections… as early s September 15th…. It must happen before elections for Israels sake, because if Obama wins the election he can stay out of the war… but before he will have to involve USA because of the vote… this is to the advantage of Israel’s position… This war could continue for months…. Personally, when this happens,  i will be looking for 3-5 people to go with me to Israel to pray in Israel…. if this takes place…  This is not “oh me”… just simply what i expect to happen.

Nation of the  USA… Election is going to get more dirty before it is done… you should make up you mind today…. Lies….. unrealistic promises…. pie in the sky will happen….

Kingdom of God… Revival is breaking out….world wide.. the greatest revival since the upper room…. Thousands per day…..

Anyway  Love ya…

I need you to support me like never before… medical cost have taken my ability to use credit… we are overwhelmed by medical cost and expenses… please help us… I know God is able to speak to His kids about sowing…. I pray they obey… http://www.jcdaytona.org/donations

Gracelation… The joy of our salvation

Hebrews 5:11 (MSG)
11-14I have a lot more to say about this, but it is hard to get it across to you since you’ve picked up this bad habit of not listening. By this time you ought to be teachers yourselves, yet here I find you need someone to sit down with you and go over the basics on God again, starting from square one—baby’s milk, when you should have been on solid food long ago! Milk is for beginners, inexperienced in God’s ways; solid food is for the mature, who have some practice in telling right from wrong.

Milk is instruction, teaching, revelation…. Meat is you acting upon instruction, teaching, revelation… The meat of the word and maturity comes in the doing the Fathers will… From faith of the knowledge of God… Who we are…..
I attended a small bible school in the 1990’s called “Arlington school of biblical studies” in it our teacher Dena gave us an assignment…. It changed my view of everything I had learned up Neil that time, and still include it in my life and teachings today… The assignment… “go and list every scripture that states… Who you are “in Christ, by Christ, through Christ”….. Not what did I do to get to do the things of Christ, but what am I, who am I, what do I do… Because of Christ in me… It was the beginning of my understanding of the finished work of Christ…. It takes a lot of renewing your mind when the church is filled with human efforts and exercise to gain God, to entertain God, to draw God, to please God, to get God to do……. Even songs talk of these human works……

We must get off milk and onto the things God gave us to do… Heal the sick, raise the dead, reach the lost, feed the hungry, give new drink to the thirsty….. Love God with our very expressions, love humans as we love ourselves…. Giving grace as we have fully received grace….

It is not that we have been wrongfully instructed, simply that is is easier to give a list of works instead of change from the inside out… Many left Jesus because they saw grace teaching as too hard…. It is easier to tell people do this, don’t do that… Than to teach the bible and state you are dead, now you only exist through Christ…. Die to your desire for anything other than to bring the Father glory…. Die to your will, let the Fathers will be done… Understand sin was paid for and done away with, not simply forgiven…. Forgiveness is the act of turning from our ways, sin was bound to he law and could not be fixed, but must be atoned for, taken away, removed… As upon a cross a sacrificial lamb took sin away….

We must join with Christ, in Christ… Here is the fullness of joy….

Final note today….. I trust the Lord with divine health, protection, .. In 20 years of ministry I have seen the Lord price for sickness and death raise 3 people from the dead, open blind eyes, the lame have walked, cancers leave bodies….. But yet on June 12th 2013 I heard from a doctor, ” you have a terminal cancer that is incurable, but treatable.” WOW! Try that on your spiritual brain wave……. But yet I am here to tell you …. I am healed, this is not going to kill me… And I might have limited days on this earth but I choose to use these days to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons… Not to be pleasing to God, but it is who I am… It is who you are… Not rewards, giftings, or anything else other than it is who we are… We are children of God asked to do the very thing Jesus did……

Pray that I am a miracle, and I am healed from this incurable cancer… But also know I only seek open door to bring His glorious work and teaching to the bride to see them be written letters written by God for all mankind to read… That by watching and observing the bride, the churches actions they get the same message Jesus brought… You can’t obey the law, so grace is your opportunity for freedom… Now go and do the will of the Father, walk in the same glory…..

Glory….
