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…..
