KINGDOM VIRTUES…are not achievable through human effort

Biblical Scene

 

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

We don’t understand as we ought to when it comes to the things of God and pertaining to God…walking with God the Holy Spirit and keeping in step thereof. Only my opinion of course not knowing the hearts of men and women of God, only the evidence of what is seen around us on a daily basis pertaining to our struggles and fears and doubts and wavering back and forth in faith amongst Believers. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I also include myself in this number of struggling as well. We attempt to try to achieve many things ourselves apart from God, but leads us becoming independent from God and causes the enemy joy to see that inner struggle and shipwreck faith when clearly we can do NOTHING apart from God, Amen. The word states; “Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” James 4:10. Humility and faith incorporated with love are our strongest weapons of warfare here and now. That humility of heart, that allows our Lord to fill us up with His Spirit that God will lift us above all adversity that we may encounter; “Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. That faith that shakes mountains because we believe in the God of our Lord and Savior that is the same yesterday, today and forever; “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelations 22:13…and that love that surpasses all understanding that confuses “the world” because of its insensitivity to accept it; For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believesin him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16. Kingdom virtues doesn’t compromise with sin, or play parts in negotiations with the world or the enemy. Kingdom virtues stands in a position that looks at the world through the eyes of God and know that it know, that it know who we are and is evident  by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. “Now it came about when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?” He said, “No; rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the LORD.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, “What has my lord to say to his servant?”…(a representative of the kingdom of heaven knows his place in this world), Amen.  Let us therefore strive to put on these virtues as Ambassadors of Heaven, knowing who we are in Christ as the Lord lead us and direct us from faith to faith and glory to glory, being no longer tossed as a child, but striving to become mature in our faith to carry out the works God has prepared for us since the beginning; “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 unskillful 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. May the God and Father of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob watch over, protect and bless everything you  do and touch in Jesus name. Amen.

“VICTORY “…over Satan, the world, and the flesh…

Jesus Walking Out of the Tomb

                             …lies not within the power of men, but in a risen Lord.

“Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6.

How long must we suffer defeat? How long will it take for us to wake up and realize that this divine spiritual battle is very real and wages war against our souls? The LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the LORD and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” Job 1:8. Our enemy knows us all too well, perhaps better than we do. He (Satan) also knows scripture better than most of us if not all of God’s word, however, what he doesn’t know is the heart of man only the mind based on us following after the things of the flesh and its desires. Family, this is why we have so many scriptures of examples and fore-fathers of faith that directs us through these land-minds of bear traps set up by the enemy, because (1), without the Spirit of Christ we are sure to suffer defeat and stand condemned, (2), without the Spirit of Christ we could never grow up in “spiritual maturity” to distinguish right from wrong to walk victoriously and overcome the enemy in this life, and (3), we need to wake up and realize who we truly are in Christ what we were created to do while on this earth for the short time we are here. There is a solution…Christ Jesus our Lord and King. Having that Spirit deposited within you begins your journey to victory. The key…Christ in us gives us that authority for our commission as well as that grand love for humanity and that humility that is needed for the Spirit of God rest upon us to carry out the works God has for us individually to complete through Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen. So the real keys here are LOVE and HUMILITY…everything else shall follow…I promise. Family, I say this with all the love the Lord has placed in my heart for my brothers and sisters in Christ that I haven’t yet reached this “maturity” spiritually, though I strive to do so as God has given me revelation to some of these things I share. I have suffered much shipwreck faith during my years of learning how to walk by faith and not by sight, and til this day, I strive praising the Lord for every defeat, victory, lesson learned and blessings in Christ, for this shows me that the hand of God continues to be with me, because this inner man continues to call out in power and have such a deep longing to be part of this glorious kingdom of our Lord. So I will press on in faith as I encourage my brothers and sisters to do the same, and permit not the enemy to be victor over you, for He that dwells within you is so much greater than he that is in this world. Amen. Separate the illusion from the things that are real, and practice to learn the difference between having a form of Godliness to growing to spiritual maturity…,for these remain…FAITH…LOVE…HUMILITY…HOPE, with these we can never fail and will ALWAYS come out victoriously. Amen. May the God and Father of us all watch over and protect you in everything you do and touch as we walk from faith to faith and glory to glory in Jesus name. Amen and God bless.
