Is your Body Holy?

Image

It has been a while since I blogged maybe a couple of weeks I just want to share a couple of things that has been lying on my heart. I have been praying for while and seeing God answer my prayers with greatness. I have prayed for finances and he has answered me and then for a unified community and he has answered. I have even heard in my spirit he would give me India yes and I truly believe it! I will spread the Gospel in a progressive manor throughout the 26 states which I am starting to pray over as I type this blog. This is not the total purpose of my blog it is the grievance of slavery that won’t escape my thoughts and the impure generation I have grew up in. I read in 1 Corinthians 6 that fornication is the only sin committed with the body every other sin defiles the heart but fornication defiles the body. I  am struck by that scripture and what conviction it laid on my heart is was deep. I have been seeking God in a major and beautiful manner asking Him to fill my heart with pureness and I have reached an area of my life and seen the result of being married to the bride of Christ and seeing the spiritual fruit from that hunger. I am not a strange charismatic guy who seeks manifestation and doesn’t have strong faith in the Lord. I could have faith in God alone but this thought of child slavery and human slavery has hit me in a major way in the last year. I have seen the gifts of the spirit operate in my own life but this thing I wish the men of God would grab a hold of purity of the flesh and heart. I truly have been praying for a wife but that also has been preparing me for our encounter. I see a trend of awareness and dedication form young women of God this need in ministry. God called fathers not men who fornicate; we need to rescue our children. I am dedicated to the teaching of God’s word knowing that it truly is living and has a power that no other thing in this world can match. The Power of the savior in my life has driven to points of desperation but the separation of his spirit from my body because it filled with sin I probably would not be able to come back from. This is powerful and heart-wrenching if we can grab this right now as you read this fornication of the body is sin against the spirit of God because your body is His temple. I truly think this has not been taught I know I never been taught this but I do know it is God’s word and we need to find new and dynamic ways to apply this teaching to the Body of Christ. In Ephesians it says God knew us before the foundation of the world. We were already a spirit he was pouring into flesh but to sin against the living god would be to use our body as a place of death and bondage. We weren’t meant to live in sin and our body was meant to sin against the spirit of God. I know this is why human slavery and sex trafficking is angering God because it is sinning against his temple.  Read these verses and see what the Father says:

But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

1Co 6:12  “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.

1Co 6:13  “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.

1Co 6:14  And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.

1Co 6:15  Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!

1Co 6:16  Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.”

1Co 6:17  But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.

1Co 6:18  Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

   

 

1Co 6:19  Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,

1Co 6:20  for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body

Can we know ignore the fact that we are lying with sin and allowing it dominate us. I pray you see the vision from the lord for people to live holy and pure.

Slave Mentality

I was traveling on a train from Sanford, Florida to Jesup, Georgia when God poured this message into me before I embarked on the mission field. This was working in my life as I was still in Teen Challenge visiting my mother for the very first time out of rehab from drug and alcohol entering the world. I wanted to be free from so many things in my life and a Slave mentality is one of them I can say now that I am. I am going to expound on the holy scripture from Galatians 5:1-7 and I going to expound on each verse so bare with me I believe this has helped me in a major way. This is going to be from the English standard version :

 Gal 5:1  For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

Gal 5:2  Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you.

Gal 5:3  I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the whole law.

Gal 5:4  You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.

Gal 5:5  For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.

Gal 5:6  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.

Gal 5:7  You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?

In verse one Paul is saying “Christ has set you free!!” so never let sin ever ever hold you in bondage ever again. So many times as Christian we repent and remember and never do like God says once our transgression are blotted he remembers no more Jeremiah 31:34 “declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”Paul says in verse 2 in accepting circumsion let yourself not be cut off from Christ in accepting law instead of grace. In John it says in the first chapter Moses brought the Law but Christ brought grace and peace.

Going back to verse 3 where we talk about the circumcision Paul is furthering the warning by saying ok you won’t let go of this circumcision issue ok here the point a reminder as a man of God the high God you are obligated, accountable and held to higher standard above the world. Let reiderate verse 4 You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.

Paul is saying some monumental things here he is clarifying this warning by telling who justify you sin you are separating yourself from Christ and fallen from this undeserved gift of salvation. A side note this great verse your foundation is cracked like a weather beaten road way with weeds of sin starting to grow in solidity of your faith in our savior Jesus Christ resulting in alienation from Christ maybe you need some holy ghost weed pulling. Now faith in our Lord Jesus Christ we wait to be approved in our righteousness of hope. Now faith is the sure mixing agent of our faith when we set our foundation in Christ. Paul lets you know rich or poor, black or white. The only thing, now this is foundational only means, singular is my faith, your faith, your family, and neighbors faith is its LOVE. Every action must be task must be through love not envy, jealousy, pride, covetness, resentment, bitterness, anger, immoralty, must be love.

You are striving for Christ right? What has discouraged you from living in love a brother, a sister, a job, a situation, more important is it YOU?

Nature of the Mission

Image

I was studying and I actually came across a study I reflected on and I saw something in it I never saw before the Nature of the mission. I think God for the ministry I am in because they whole-invest into future leaders. I had an amazing course called Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby. In that God God gave me a different revelation of created in his image. I took all physical and egotistical images and seen a characteristic an eternal image of who I am. I was not just a man on earth but, A prince in heaven. I hope whoever is reading this can see it. God not only sent his son but he sent a perfect model for us the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I just want to thank God for that. Now, God tells us all not just me in 2 Peter 1:4   And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. God shares the divine nature with us his children. I have to say that this is AWESOME. We as humans get a gift and promises now, that is divine! Now we just didn’t get this nature Jesus gave it to us. In 2 Corinthians 5:2121For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.This verse right here is Jesus’s mission for us . That’s me and you. Now in James God tells us a part of our nature in 1 John 2:15-17

15 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever. We don’t go anywhere unless God ordains it and he prepares the way. Now in Ephesians 4:3232 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. Forgive others be tenderhearted just as God forgave us.Hebrews 13:17 Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit.Be a blessing not a burden.James 4:6-10

But he gives us even more grace to stand against such evil desires. As the Scriptures say,

“God opposes the proud
    but favors the humble.”[a]

So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.Submit to God and humble yourselves to others. 1 Corinthians 15:31For I swear, dear brothers and sisters, that I face death daily. This is as certain as my pride in what Christ Jesus our Lord has done in you. Carry your cross and die daily and protest with rejoicing in Christ.Galatians 2:2020 My old self has been crucified with Christ.[a]It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.Christ is alive in me. Now I was shown this characteristics and the very inherent nature of God by the holy spirit as told to me in John 16;13

13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.

Friends I pray this reaches into your heart as a seed and God himself the creator waters it and it grows in you the character of God that is growing in me to even have the courage to type this. be blessed brothers and sisters
