Psalm 133

Posted by adonailife on November 7, 2015 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Psalm 133, Behold How good, and Pleasant is Oneness.

Graham Siebritz

Psalm 133 NKJV

Psa 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!

Psa 133:2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.

Psa 133:3 It is like the dew of Hermon, Descending upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing; Life forevermore.

 

Psa 133:1

A Song Of Praise New Life Version

See, how good and how pleasing it is for brothers to live together as one!

Psa 133:2 It is like oil of great worth poured on the head, flowing down through the hair on the face, even the face of Aaron, and flowing down to his coat.

Psa 133:3 It is like the morning water of Hermon coming down upon the hills of Zion. For there the Lord has given the gift of life that lasts forever.

 

Behold: Fail not to inspect it. It is worthy of admiration. As you gaze upon it, it will charm you into imitation. Consider it with attention. This common-union, this dwelling together of brothers as one.

 

How good: Value statement. - When scripture would declare something good it would extent God's commendation of this particular matter or thing. It is agreeable to the will of God. As pleasing to God.

 

How pleasant: defines causality: meaning it brings God constant delight.

 

As family dwelling together. _ In unity - As One.'

 

Unity is defined as the state of being one or oneness. In maths, unity is the abstract expression for any unit whatsoever. The number one is a unit. When you divide one you create a fraction.

 

This can best be understood by understanding the Hebrew mind.

For the Hebrew political, social, economic and religious sentiment where always combined, inter connected, inter twain; and Jerusalem was the centre out from which Jewish life flowed. How many times the Psalmist would declare out of Zion / out of Jerusalem. For the Hebrew mind it was not difficult to perceive and understand that out of oneness can flow many.

 

That is why when we come to the Table of the Lord we must discern the Lord's Body which is the assembly, the body corporate, the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

When oneness is destroyed the pleasantness of the gathering is destroyed. The absence of oneness can cancelled the legitimacy of a gathering in the spirit. We can have our meeting but heaven (the eternal realm) would not recognize that as one ordain to carry the intent of God.

 

In oneness, our dwelling together has the ability to divinely resource us.

Oil is a consistent picture of the anointing of God. Our oneness can secure the continuous presence of the anointing to cover of the body. What a glorious display of a whole household of faith being covered by the anointing. From the head of the fathering leadership (priest), right down to the ordinary members, our children (edge of his garments).

 

It’s like the Dew of Hermon. The Palestine agriculture in the scoring dessert heat understands the value of dew. It is an integral part to nurture the crop.

 

Dew is synonymous with God's provision.

For us dew becomes a divine resource. It’s a blessing.

 

Deu 32:2

Let my teaching fall on you like rain;

let my speech settle like dew.

Let my words fall like rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants.

 

Deu 33:28

So Israel will live in safety, prosperous Jacob in security,

in a land of grain and new wine, while the heavens drop down dew.

 

The absence of dew was considered a curse.

 

1Ki 17:1

Now Elijah, who was from Tishbe in Gilead, told King Ahab, “As surely as the LORD, the God of Israel, lives—the God I serve—there will be no dew or rain during the next few years until I give the word!”

 

2Sa 1:21

O mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew or rain upon you, nor fruitful fields producing offerings of grain. For there the shield of the mighty heroes was defiled; the shield of Saul will no longer be anointed with oil.

 

There - in this accurate alignment of oneness God commands the blessing.

 

command - to activate or to set into effect

 

It is not that God would suspend His rest to command, but it is when there is divine alignment of the activities in the earth with the intent in the heaven we activate, or set into motion the processes that will display the presence of God, the Hand of God in our lives, that is called blessings and favour.

 

Living from heaven

It was always Gods desire that we live in close contact with Him. Adam lived in an eternal dimensionwhere he was in the presence of his Father all th time. He could het His footsteps.*[[Gen 3:8]] BBE* And there came to them the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the evening wind: and the man and his wife went to a secret place among the trees of the garden, away from the eyes of the Lord God. He had direct access to the tree of life. *[[Gen 2:9]] BBE* And out of the earth the Lord made every tree to come, delighting the eye and good for food; and in the middle of the garden, the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.   He lost that position when he disobeyed his Father, and desirednafter knowledge of good and evil.   But it was always good intent to restore the ancient pathways(olam ) and to bring us back to the original position He created us in, that is to repeated with Him in heave; and to be part of the true tabernacle which is in heaven.   *[[Heb 8:1-2]] KJV* %v 1% Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; %v 2% A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.   The true tabernacle is Father and Son, who sits in heaven, but which Father allowed to come to earth. *[[Joh 14:9]] BBE* Jesus said to him, Philip, have I been with you all this time, and still you have no knowledge of me? He who has seen me has seen the Father. Why do you say, Let us see the Father?   Thereby bringing that which is in the heaven into the realm of the earth.   *[[Rev 21:3]] ASV* And I heard a great voice out of the throne saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he shall dwell with them, and they shall be his peoples, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God: *[[Gen 2:10/ISV]]* A river flows from Eden to water the garden, and from there it divides, becoming four branches.     *[[Eze 47:1]] ISV* After this, he brought me back to the doorway to the Temple. To my amazement, there was water flowing out toward the east from beneath the threshold of the Temple! (The Temple faced eastward.) The water flowed down from beneath the right side of the Temple, that is, from the south-facing side where the altar was located.   *[[Joe 3:18]] ISV* It will come about at that time that the mountains will drip with newly pressed wine, the hills will flow with milk, and the streams of Judah will flow abundantly. A fountain will spring from the Temple of the LORD, to water the Valley of the Acacias.   *[[Rev 22:1]] ISV* Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal. It was flowing from the throne of God and the lamb.   For to long the church (religion ) tried to reach heaven from below, like building the a labels tower. All this created was confession on the earth. Their purpose is not to be with Father, but to make a name for themselves. *[[Gen 11:4]] ISV* Then they said, �??Come on! Let�??s build ourselves a city and a tower, with its summit in the heavens, and let�??s make a name for ourselves so we won�??t be scattered over the surface of the whole earth.�??   The ancient pathways directions to a position which starts in the heavens and come down to earth.   *[[Gen 28:12-15]] ISV* %v 12% when he had a dream! He saw a raised highway that had been built with its ending point on earth and its beginning point in heaven. God�??s angels were ascending and descending on it. %v 13% And there was the LORD, standing above it and telling Jacob, �??I am the LORD God of your grandfather Abraham. I�??m Isaac�??s God, too. I�??m giving you and your descendants the ground on which you�??re sleeping. %v 14% Your descendants are going to become like the dust of the earth and spread out to the west, east, north, and south. All the families of the earth will be blessed through you and your descendants. %v 15% Now pay attention! I�??m here with you, and I�??m going to be watching over you wherever you go. I�??m going to bring you back to this land, because I won�??t ever leave you until I�??ve accomplished what I�??ve promised about you.�??   *[[Isa 66:1]] KJV* Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? God's lives in heaven and on earth at the same time. He promise to be with us, to never leave us. And if we with Him, it implies that we also occupy a position of being in the heavens and the earth at the same time. It is His desire that we meet with Him at a place called there above the same Mercy Seat. A realm not affected by the things of the earth.   *[[Exo 25:22/ISV]]* I�??ll meet with you there, and I�??ll tell you all my commandments for the Israelis from above the Mercy Seat, from between the two cherubim that are on the Ark of the Testimony.�?? *[[Num 7:89]] ISV* When Moses entered the Tent of Meeting to speak with the LORD, he heard a voice speaking to him above the Mercy Seat over the Ark of the Testimony. He spoke to him from between the two cherubim.   Our father David knew how to live in the presence of his Father. *[[1Ki 8:25-30]] ISV* %v 25% �??Now therefore, LORD God of Israel, keep your promise that you made to my father, your servant David, when you said, �??You will not lack a man to sit on the throne of Israel, if only your descendants will watch their lives, to live in my presence just as you have lived in my presence.�??   Elijah also come and show us the way to live in two realms at the same time. He also shows this technology who is a diligent follow of him. So by following, listening, observing and obeying his earthly father, the mantle to operate from the heavens to the earth is transformed to Elisha.   *[[1Ki 18:15]] ISV* But Elijah promised him, �??As the LORD of the Heavenly Armies lives, in whose presence I stand, I will appear to Ahab today.�??   *[[2Ki 3:14]] ISV* But Elisha responded, �??As the LORD of the Heavenly Armies lives, in whose presence I stand, I would never pay attention to you or even look in your direction were it not for my continuous respect for the presence of King Jehoshaphat of Judah.     Christ came to direct us back to our original position with our Father in heaven.   %v 15% He says to them, But who do you say that I am? %v 16% And Simon Peter made answer and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. %v 17% And Jesus made answer and said to him, A blessing on you, Simon Bar-jonah: because this knowledge has not come to you from flesh and blood, but from my Father in heaven. %v 18% And I say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock will my church be based, and the doors of hell will not overcome it. %v 19% I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatever is fixed by you on earth will be fixed in heaven: and whatever you make free on earth will be made free in heaven.   Jesus told Simon Peter that only His Father in heaven could reveal the Christ-Sonship dimension to him. Implying that Peter accessed the technology to operate in the Heaven whilst on earth. The rock upon which the church will be build is: 1. Accessing the heavens 2. Hearing directly from the Father 3. Declaring that Christ is the Son of God.   Upon Peter declaration, the keys to the kingdom of heaven is given to him, giving him free access to the heavens at all times.

Body of Christ

Good day Adonai Family

Isaiah 60:3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

My understanding of the Body of Christ has really changed, over the past weeks now that we have had been enlightened. Our spiritual father has with skill/craft dug deep into the word and made known to us mystery of the Christ, which is Church.

The Body of Christ is not an organisation but a people of gathered in heavenly arrangement. At this moment, we part of a remnant however, we need to consider the day when all can come to the Knowledge of Christ. 1Pe_1:9 because you are receiving the salvation of your souls, which is the purpose of your faith in him.

 


Where do Easter Come from

The Pagan Origin of Easter

________________________________________

There is no biblical reference to celebrate Easter.

 

The Celebration of the Death of the Lord Jesus Christ is commanded in Corinthians 11:24-25

1Co 11:24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."

1Co 11:25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."

There is no reference in the New Testament Church that Easter or even the Passover was ever celebrated. Paul will even go to the extent that there is no longer need for the celebration of special days. Every day in my view is Holy and Bless.

Col 2:16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.

Col 2:17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.

 

Heb 9:10 They are only a matter of food and drink and various ceremonial washings--external regulations applying until the time of the new order.

We are reminded that the Law (Old Testament governed by the Law of Moses) is a shadow of Spiritual realities that are found is Christ.

 

Our Passover is from darkness in the light that is Christ. Sabbath is a position of rest out from which God is perfecting the saints. It is no longer what we can do for God, it is what God can accomplish in us and through us.

Php 1:6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

There is no biblical grounds to celebrate Easter.

 

In Acts 12:4: “And when he [King Herod Agrippa I] had apprehended him [the apostle Peter], he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.” The Greek word translated Easter here is pascha, properly translated everywhere else in the Bible as “Passover.”

 

Easter the Babylonian goddess "Ishtar" which is pronounced "Easter", and her moon egg became known as "Ishtar's" egg." The Israelites learn about this goddess in their time in Babylonian captivity and they learned the ways of Babylon. In Jeremiah 7 the Israelites again celebrated this feast to the Queen of Heaven “Ishtar” and they provoked God’s anger.

 

Jeremiah 7: 18-24

Jer 7:18 The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead the dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger!

Jer 7:19 Am I the One Whom they provoke to anger? says the Lord. Is it not themselves [whom they provoke], to their own confusion and vexation and to their own shame?

Jer 7:20 Therefore thus says the Lord God: Behold, My anger and My wrath will be poured out on this place, on man and beast, on the trees of the field and the fruit of the ground; it will burn and not be quenched.

Jer 7:21 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices and eat the flesh [if you will. It will avail you nothing].

Jer 7:22 For in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices.

Jer 7:23 But this thing I did command them: Listen to and obey My voice, and I will be your God and you will be My people; and walk in the whole way that I command you, that it may be well with you.

Jer 7:24 But they would not listen to and obey Me or bend their ear [to Me], but followed the counsels and the stubborn promptings of their own evil hearts and minds, and they turned their backs and went in reverse instead of forward.

 

Judgement was declared over the house of Judah because they celebrated the festival of "Ishtar" which is pronounced "Easter", In the New Testament the word Passover is incorrectly translated as Easter. Acts 12:4: “And when he [King Herod Agrippa I] had apprehended him [the apostle Peter], he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter [should be Passover the feast of the Jews] to bring him forth to the people.” The Greek word translated Easter here is pascha, properly translated everywhere else in the Bible as “Passover.”

 

While we are ignorant [child position] we may be forgiven not to the see the way the counter-fit has disguise itself. Without knowing we brought honor to a false god.

 

By the The Table of the Lord, (as often as we come together) we are commanded to celebrate or to bring in remembrance the death of the Lord.

 

We ought to worship God in spirit and truth.

 

Please read the article about the history of “Ishtar” by David J Meyer

 

Easter is a day that is honored by nearly all of contemporary Christianity and is used to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

The holiday often involves a church service at sunrise, a feast which includes an "Easter Ham", decorated eggs and stories about rabbits.

Those who love truth learn to ask questions, and many questions must be asked regarding the holiday of Easter.

 

Is it truly the day when Jesus arose from the dead? Where did all of the strange customs come from, which have nothing to do with the resurrection of our Savior?

 

The purpose of this tract is to help answer those questions, and to help those who seek truth to draw their own conclusions.

The first thing we must understand is that professing Christians were not the only ones who celebrated a festival called "Easter."

 

"Ishtar", which is pronounced "Easter”, was a day that commemorated the resurrection of one of their gods that they called "Tammuz", who was believed to be the only begotten son of the moon-goddess and the sun-god.

 

In those ancient times, there was a man named Nimrod, who was the grandson of one of Noah's son named Ham.

Ham had a son named Cush who married a woman named Semiramis. Cush and Semiramis then had a son named him "Nimrod."

After the death of his father, Nimrod married his own mother and became a powerful King.

 

The Bible tells of this man, Nimrod, in Genesis 10:8-10 as follows: "And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar."

Nimrod became a god-man to the people and Semiramis, his wife and mother, became the powerful Queen of ancient Babylon.

Nimrod was eventually killed by an enemy, and his body was cut in pieces and sent to various parts of his kingdom.

Semiramis had all of the parts gathered, except for one part that could not be found.

That missing part was his reproductive organ. Semiramis claimed that Nimrod could not come back to life without it and told the people of Babylon that Nimrod had ascended to the sun and was now to be called "Baal", the sun god.

Queen Semiramis also proclaimed that Baal would be present on earth in the form of a flame, whether candle or lamp, when used in worship.

Semiramis was creating a mystery religion, and with the help of Satan, she set herself up as a goddess.

Semiramis claimed that she was immaculately conceived.

She taught that the moon was a goddess that went through a 28 day cycle and ovulated when full.

She further claimed that she came down from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River.

This was to have happened at the time of the first full moon after the spring equinox.

Semiramis became known as "Ishtar" which is pronounced "Easter", and her moon egg became known as "Ishtar's" egg."

Ishtar soon became pregnant and claimed that it was the rays of the sun-god Baal that caused her to conceive.

The son that she brought forth was named Tammuz.

Tammuz was noted to be especially fond of rabbits, and they became sacred in the ancient religion, because Tammuz was believed to be the son of the sun-god, Baal. Tammuz, like his supposed father, became a hunter.

The day came when Tammuz was killed by a wild pig.

Queen Ishtar told the people that Tammuz was now ascended to his father, Baal, and that the two of them would be with the worshippers in the sacred candle or lamp flame as Father, Son and Spirit.

Ishtar, who was now worshipped as the "Mother of God and Queen of Heaven", continued to build her mystery religion.

The queen told the worshippers that when Tammuz was killed by the wild pig, some of his blood fell on the stump of an evergreen tree, and the stump grew into a full new tree overnight. This made the evergreen tree sacred by the blood of Tammuz.

She also proclaimed a forty day period of time of sorrow each year prior to the anniversary of the death of Tammuz.

During this time, no meat was to be eaten.

Worshippers were to meditate upon the sacred mysteries of Baal and Tammuz, and to make the sign of the "T" in front of their hearts as they worshipped.

They also ate sacred cakes with the marking of a "T" or cross on the top.

Every year, on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, a celebration was made.

It was Ishtar's Sunday and was celebrated with rabbits and eggs.

Ishtar also proclaimed that because Tammuz was killed by a pig, that a pig must be eaten on that Sunday.

By now, the readers of this tract should have made the connection that paganism has infiltrated the contemporary "Christian" churches, and further study indicates that this paganism came in by way of the Roman Catholic System.

The truth is that Easter has nothing whatsoever to do with the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We also know that Easter can be as much as three weeks away from the Passover, because the pagan holiday is always set as the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.

Some have wondered why the word "Easter" is in the King James Bible.

It is because Acts, chapter 12, tells us that it was the evil King Herod, who was planning to celebrate Easter, and not the Christians.

The true Passover and pagan Easter sometimes coincide, but in some years, they are a great distance apart.

So much more could be said, and we have much more information for you, if you are a seeker of the truth.

We know that the Bible tells us in John 4:24, "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."

The truth is that the forty days of Lent, eggs, rabbits, hot cross buns and the Easter ham have everything to do with the ancient pagan religion of Mystery Babylon. These are all antichrist activities!

Satan is a master deceiver, and has filled the lives of well-meaning, professing Christians with idolatry.

These things bring the wrath of God upon children of disobedience, who try to make pagan customs of Baal worship Christian.

You must answer for your activities and for what you teach your children.

These customs of Easter honor Baal, who is also Satan, and is still worshipped as the "Rising Sun" and his house is the "House of the Rising Sun."

How many churches have "sunrise services" on Ishtar's day and face the rising sun in the East?

How many will use colored eggs and rabbit stories, as they did in ancient Babylon.

These things are no joke, any more than Judgment day is a joke.

I pray to God that this tract will cause you to search for more truth.

We will be glad to help you by providing more information and by praying for you.

These are the last days, and it is time to repent, come out and be separate.

Living from DAY ONE

Posted by Pappa G on March 29, 2013 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Living from Day One!

Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light, and there was light.

Gen 1:4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

Gen 1:5 God called the light day, and the darkness he called night. And there was evening, and there was morning-- the first day.

Gen 1:6 And God said, Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.

Gen 1:7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so.

Gen 1:8 God called the expanse sky. And there was evening, and there was morning-- the second day.

Gen 1:9 And God said, Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear. And it was so.

Gen 1:10 God called the dry ground land, and the gathered waters he called seas. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:11 Then God said, Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds. And it was so.

Gen 1:12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:13 And there was evening, and there was morning-- the third day.

Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years,

Gen 1:15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth. And it was so.

Gen 1:16 God made two great lights-- the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.

Gen 1:17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth,

Gen 1:18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:19 And there was evening, and there was morning-- the fourth day.

In day one God created light. Out of the voice of God the substance of light came forth. God still intent to produce light out of the voice of God and from that light the sons of God will live.

In day two God created the heavens. The heaven would host the throne from which God command and transmit the eternal things of God to which the sons of God submit. When we submit to the purposes of God, that which the throne of God transmit as the proceeding word of God in the earth, we align the earth with the heaven. “Let Thy Kingdom come on the earth as it is in the heaven.

In day three God created the earth. The earth will host the visible dimension. So the unseen God would make God-self visible in the earth. The directional flow of the Kingdom of God is from the heaven (unseen) to the earth (seen) Matthew 6. In it the kingdom of God become a present reality in the lives of the sons of God.

In day four God created the sun and the moon and the stars. Those who life by sight of their natural eye need the sun and the moon and the stars to give them light.

Rev 21:23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.

Rev 21:24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.

Rev 21:25 On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there.

Rev 21:26 The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it.

The City of the Lord, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrew 12), whose building operation does not come from the earth but from the heaven is the New Jerusalem coming down out from heaven. We are not going to the New Jerusalem the New Jerusalem is coming to us (Revelation 21:2).

Sons of the city does not live from day four, the light of the Sun and Moon and the Stars, but they live from the light that is created in day. When we no longer live by what see, we start to live from day.

2Co_4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

We declare to the heavens that there is a church being build in the earth that can rise to live from the unseen dimension.

Living from Day ONE!

Kingdom Culture - They devoted themselves to Fellowship

Posted by adonailife on January 23, 2013 at 10:25 AM Comments comments (0)

They devoted themselves to Fellowship

 

Act 2:42  They devoted themselves to theapostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and toprayer.

Fellowship Grk: “koinōnia”  means – association /communion / intimacy

 

Ourfellowship with one another is more than having a meal together, or spendingtime together.  Our fellowship isorchestrated and governed by the Holy Spirit. Such a fellowship can have a purging effect that can transform lives.

 

1Jn 1:7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in thelight, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son,purifies us from all sin. 

 

Ourfellowship is not initiated from ourselves. Spending time together does not necessary account for fellowship.  Our fellowship with one another is producedfrom our mutual fellowship with the light that is Christ.

 

It is thework of the Holy Spirit to join the body together.  Your attraction to who-ever in the body ofChrist has less to do with your likes it is supernatural and the work of theHoly Spirit.

 

If wefellowship outside of the operation of the Holy Spirit we will form mere human relationshipsthat we know cannot sustain itself and produce hatred, discord, jealousy, fitsof rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy.

 

It is notbecause we are so cute that we form these beautiful relationship and canfellowship in the way we do, it is the work of the Holy Spirit

 

Our fellowship must therefore be zealouslyguarded by allowing the fruit of the spirit to govern our coming together. Gal5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit islove, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness and self-control. Against suchthings there is no law.

 

It is theHoly Spirit that creates the environment for Fellowship and it is not void ofthe fruit of the spirit but saturated with the fruit!

 

Philippians chapter 2, “If you have any encouragementfrom being united with Christ, any comfort from His love, any fellowship withthe Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete bybeing like minded, having the same love, being one in the Spirit and purpose.”

 

 

But if we walk in the light - If, having receivedthrough salvation, holiness from him, we live a holy and righteous life,deriving continual light, power, and life from him, then we have fellowship onewith another; that is, we have communion with God, and  God condescends to hold communion with us. Those who are deeplyexperienced God converse with God, and God with them. What John says is nofigure; God and a holy heart are in continual correspondence.

The blood of Jesus Christ- Hispassion and death has purged our consciences from dead works, and cleanseth us,continues to cleanse us, i.e., to keep clean what it has made clean.  And being cleansed from all sin is what everybeliever should look for, what he has a right to expect, and what he must havein this life, in order to have fellowship with God. Christ is not a partialSavior, He cleanses from All sin.

Kingdom Culture - They devoted themselves to Aposte's Doctrine

They devotedthemselves to Apostolic Doctrine

 

Hosea 4:6

6 Mypeople are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have

rejectedknowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; because

you haveforgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your

children.(NKJ)

Joh_6:53  Jesus said to them, I tell youthe truth, unless you eatthe flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.

 

 A person with a valid salvation pursues theWord – he wants to eat Jesus’ flesh and

drink Jesus’ blood – symbol of Wordinternalization.

1Ti_4:16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if youdo, you will save both yourself and your hearers.

 

2Ti_4:3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine.Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great numberof teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

 

Tit_1:9 He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, sothat he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.

 

Matt4:4

ButHe answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone,but by

everyword that proceeds from the mouth of God.'"(NKJ)

Proceeding truth islife-giving word.

 

Your doctrine will determentthe accuracy of your walk.  Sad to saythat many people in the church today would claim otherwise.  It’s the intention of the heaven is that aseat of Him, Christ the incarnation of the word, (the word becoming flesh) willproduce a man after the seed of Christ. Only true apostolic doctrine that is Christ-centered will produce thecorporate Christ in the earth.

If it is true that a personis what he eats then we can only produce a Christ-like nation by applying trueproceeding word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

 

To continue in ApostolicDoctrine we must embrace the technology intent and designed to facilitate thedoctrine.  The sent one.  The apostolos.

It is not pastor’s doctrine,or any other grace carrier to handle doctrine but it is given to apostles.  This enforced by the story of the healing ofthe blind in John 9

Joh 9:1  Jesus Heals a Man Born Blind

As he wentalong, he saw a man blind from birth.

Joh9:2  Hisdisciples asked him, Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he wasborn blind?

Joh9:3  Neitherthis man nor his parents sinned, said Jesus, but this happened so that the workof God might be displayed in his life.

Joh9:4  As longas it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, whenno-one can work.

Joh9:5  While Iam in the world, I am the light of the world.

Joh9:6  Havingsaid this, he spat on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it onthe man's eyes.

Joh9:7  Go, hetold him, wash in the Pool of Siloam (this word means Sent). So the man wentand washed, and came home seeing.

Joh9:8  Hisneighbours and those who had formerly seen him begging asked, Isn't this thesame man who used to sit and beg?

Joh9:9  Someclaimed that he was. Others said, No, he only looks like him. But he himselfinsisted, I am the man.

Joh9:10  How thenwere your eyes opened? they demanded.

Joh9:11  Hereplied, The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes. He toldme to go to Siloam and wash. So I went and washed, and then I could see.

 

Our salvationbegins with Christ but is brought to completion by an apostolic grace that wasour eyes. So we can declare once I was blind but now I see. That is the purposeof doctrine is to open our eyes and erase the ignorance that is produce by theflesh. 

Yourdoctrine determines who you fellowship with.

Withoutdoctrine you will fellowship with anyone – you will never accelerate kingdompurpose.

Withoutdoctrine you will make foolish decisions – and not step into the purpose ofyour life.

Living in the Presence of God

Posted by Carmen on January 16, 2011 at 4:01 PM Comments comments (0)

Our message of this day: Eden (the Presence) is sthe environment that was created for us to be in. Like water is the natural environment for fish, the Presence is the natural environment for man. Gen 3:22 -23; because of man's knowledge of good and evil, and to prevent man to also take from the tree of live, man was sent out of Eden (the Presence).

The guard to Eden and the Tree of Life, is  Cherubim( ministering spirits manifesting God's invisible presence and symbolising His actoin) and a flaming sword (the Word of God).

Re-entering into Eden can only be obtained through an angel guarding the gate and the Word of God. According to Rev 21 the angels at the gate, refer to apostolic graces. Therefore we can only re-enter the Presence of God(Eden) through a man on  the earth who displays  Apostolic grace.

Reflections on 201

REFLECTION ON 2010

 

We embarked on a journey.

 

Psa 84:5 How happy are those whose strength comes from you, who are eager to make the pilgrimage to Mount Zion.

Psa 84:5 Blessed835 is the man120 whose strength5797 is in thee; in whose heart3824 are the ways4546 of them.

Psa 84:5 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

 

NIV : BLESSED IS THE MAN WHOSE HEART IS SET ON PILGRIMAGE

 

The Isrealites were on a journey from Egypt, through the wilderness

the Promise Land. The land which God swore to Abraham, Isaac and

Jacob will belong to their descendants.

But it is a promise made by God,

to Himself, without the God needing anyone but God self to honour the

agreement.

 

Heb 6:13 For when God made [His] promise to Abraham, He swore by Himself, since He had no one greater by whom to swear,

Gen15:18 On the same day the Lord made a covenant (promise, pledge)

with Abram, saying, To your descendants I have given this land,

God commanded Pharoa to let His people go, so that they can worship

Him. But we know that we(our bodies) must become the worship.(Rom

12.1)

The destination of the Isrealites was Canaan the land promised by God. But the old testament is a copy, a shadow of what is to come. And that what is to come was there before, in order for the shadow to exist.

 

Our pilgrimage is towards Mt Zion –  a position of spiritual elevantion (whose physical location is in Jerusalem, which was part of Canaan – the copy of what was to come).

 

We know that our destination is not a mountain that can be

touched coby hands.

 

Heb 12:

22 But rather, you have come to Mount Zion, even to the city of

the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless multitudes of

angels in festal gathering,

23 And to the church (assembly) of the Firstborn who are registered [as citizens] in heaven, and to the God Who is Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous (the redeemed in heaven) who have been made perfect,

24 And to Jesus, the Mediator (Go-between, Agent) of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance]. [Gen. 4:10.]

 

25 So see to it that you do not reject Him or refuse to listen to and heed Him Who is speaking [to you now]. For if they [the Israelites] did not escape when they refused to listen and heed Him Who warned and divinely instructed them [here] on earth [revealing with heavenly warnings His will], how much less shall we escape if we reject and turn our backs on Him Who cautions and admonishes [us] from heaven?

 

OUR DESTINATION: Mt Zion, is the New Jerusalem coming down

from heaven. That is the church of the first born. It is a location where

we become the worship, where our souls is completely transformed a father into the image and the likeness of God.

 

ZION is our destination.

 

Psa 84:5 How happy are those whose strength comes from you, who are eager to make the pilgrimage to Mount Zion.

Psa 84:5 Blessed835 is the man120 whose strength5797 is in thee; in whose heart3824 are the ways4546 of them.

Psa 84:5 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

 

The highway (pilgrimage) to Zion is in the heart. Jesus says He is the Way (John 14.6) to the Father, the Father(God)is the end of the journey through Jesus, so our destination (Zion) is God. God is also the Alpha and the Omega. If our pilgrimage is Zion the end of our journey, Zion is God.

 

Rev 14:1 THEN I looked, and behold, the Lamb stood on Mount Zion, and with Him 144,000 [men] who had His name and His Father's name inscribed on their foreheads.

1Pe 2:6 Wherefore1352 also2532 it is contained4023 in1722 the3588 scripture,1124 Behold,2400 I lay5087 in1722 Zion4622 a chief corner stone,204, 3037 elect,1588 precious:1784 and2532 he that believeth4100 on1909 him846 shall not3364 be confounded.2617

The chief corner stone of Zion is Christ and we are the living stone built on the chief corner stone. And everyone who has the name of the Son and the Name of the Father inscribed on their foreheads (revealed knowledge of the Father and the Son) will be part of Zion.

 

Mat 21:5 Say to the Daughter of Zion [inhabitants of Jerusalem], Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey [a beast of burden]. [Isa. 62:11; Zech. 9:9.]

In order to be inhabitants of Zion, Zion (God) must come into us. He will come riding on a donkey, and a colt the foal of a donkey. (Fathers and sons) The father will give Christ (fullness of who God is) to his sons, and in that manner he will inscribe the name of the Son and the name of the Father into (onto) the heads of his sons.

Mal 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. [Matt. 11:14; 17:10-13.]

Mal 4:6 And he shall turn and reconcile the hearts of the [estranged] fathers to the [ungodly] children, and the hearts of the [rebellious] children to [the piety of] their fathers [a reconciliation produced by repentance of the ungodly], lest I come and smite the land with a curse and a ban of utter destruction. [Luke 1:17.]

 

Great and terrible day (day of judgement) – Christ coming into the earth; judgment, the standard of Christ in the earth

Hearts of the fathers – the highway to Zion which is in the hearts of the fathers, must be connected to the sons. In that way the father show the sons the way to Zion. (the Highway to Zion in transferred from the hearts of the father into the hearts of the sons)

That is the way to God. God not only comes into our hearts (the very core of who we are), but we are transformer into the image and the likeness of who God (Zion) is.

 

Smite the land with a curse – the land is our inheritance. And when the hearts of the fathers are not reconciled to the hearts of the sons, and the heart of the sons are not reconciled to the hearts of the fathers, the land (our inheritance) is cursed.

Gen 15:7 And He said to him, I am the [same] Lord, Who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees to give you this land as an inheritance.

But our true inheritance (promise land) is not a physical location, Abraham although entering the land promised to him, knew that.

Heb 11

8 [Urged on] by faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and

went forth to a place which he was destined to receive as an

inheritance; and he went, although he did not know or trouble his mind

about where he was to go.

9 [Prompted] by faith he dwelt as a temporary resident in the land which

was designated in the promise [of God, though he was like a stranger] in a strange country, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs with him of the same promise. [Gen. 12:1-8.]

10 For he was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has fixed and firm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God.

God says: I will built my church (Math 16:18). On the revelation of who the Son of God is. (The Son of God is : Col 2:9 For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature].

Our everlasting inheritance is a city coming from heaven, everything that

is in heaven comes down into the earth (us), and dwell amongst us. In

heaven is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (all in One

God), and God(judgement) comes from heaven to live and reign in us and

through us. This inheritance cannot decay (indestructible, incorruptible),

because it is not from the earth. That is the original reason whereby God

created man (Adam).

 

Gen 2:7 Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being. [I Cor. 15:45-49.]

Man was formed from the dust of the earth, but with the Spirit of God inside. The Spirit of God(breath of life) the very substance of the heavens. By creating Adam by God’s Spirit, God, gave birth to His son. Adam is the son of God Luk 3:38 Formed out of the earth to carry the substance of the heaven ( Spirit: image and likeness of God). A location where the heavens and the earth become one. A place from which the kingdom of God – (dominion given by God) can operate.

Our true inheritance is to move back to the original intent of God, where sons become vessels to carry the image and the likeness of who God is.

 

Our final destination in our journey(pilgrimage) is to become like God (Zion; Omega; the Finish). To become the worship, our bodies must become holy, and well pleasing to God. To become holy, we need to be sanctified, which is part of the process of the salvation of our souls.

 

1Th 5:23 And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).

2Th 2:13 But we, brethren beloved by the Lord, ought and are obligated [as those who are in debt] to give thanks always to God for you, because God chose you from the beginning as His firstfruits (first converts) for salvation through the sanctifying work of the [Holy] Spirit and [your] belief in (adherence to, trust in, and reliance on) the Truth.

1Pe 1:23 You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting Word of God.

1Pe 1:25 But the Word of the Lord (divine instruction, the Gospel) endures forever. And this Word is the good news which was preached to you. [Isa. 40:6-9.]

We are born again, by the salvation of our souls, into the fullness of who

God is. We are born again by the Word of God .

 

Joh 1:1 IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. [Isa. 9:6.]

And the Word of God is God God self. And we need to hear God, through a preacher John 6:29 (a father who brings God to his sons)

 

Isa 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, Your God reigns! [Acts 10:36; Rom. 10:15; Eph. 6:14-16.]

Bringing the heaven into the earth (Graham Siebritz)

Posted by adonailife on February 6, 2010 at 6:35 AM Comments comments (11)

Is it possible totravel the heaven, the realm of the spirit (to travel the mind of God) and bring dimensions from the unseen, the eternal and to build it into the structures of our lives so that we can experience this heaven dimension in theearth. The simple answer is, YES.

 

From the offset we need to remember it was always and still is the desire of the unseen, the heavenly to make it self visible in the seen. The unseen God desire to make God-self visible in the seen through Hisbody the Church. To enable this to happen would take more than just religious activities, singing, jumping around and falling down.

 

Let us study Romans 10 and find in it technologies and a blue print that would enable us to bring the heaven in the earth.

 

We all start our journey in God with great zeal for God. [Zeal can be defined as an energeticand unflagging enthusiasm, especially for a cause or idea.] However zeal for God will and cannot sustain your journey or intimate relationship with the father. That is why many people backslide when there is no more zeal.  In verse two Paul give us the blueprint to sustain intimacy with the father. Your zeal needs to be base on knowledge. And it is not just any knowledge. Information will not do it. The greek word forknowledge is ‘epignōsis”(Thayer Definition) that is precise and correct knowledge.  Knowledge of things ethical and divine.“Epignōsis” would therefore refer to revelation knowledge of God.

 

Epignōsis comes from the root word epiginōskō which means to become thoroughly acquainted with, to know thoroughly, to know accurately or to know well.  You need to know God to sustain your relationship with God. This is the first important element of the blue print.

 

Thesecond element according to Paul in this chapter is to know the righteousness that comes from God.  Righteousness canbe describe as integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking feeling, and acting.  For as inthe household of faith, righteousness is defined as a prescribe, accurate,divine and holy lifestyle. Righteousness is the pattern of life that theheaven desire, lived in a human life in the earth.

 

The third dimension of the blue print is to make the righteousness from God your own.  Paul would refer to this process as being translated. (out of darkness into His marvellous light.)  It is not good enough to know, or have head knowledge of the righteousness of God.  The word must become flesh in live in us.  That which comes from the heaven needs tofind a permanent resting place in our heart (the configuration of our mind) and be able to alter or permanently change our behaviour.

 

Meaning, to first establish what through Epignōsisand epiginōskō what the idea of righteousness in the mind of God is and thento build it in the structure of your life in the earth. When this blue print ofthe heaven is crafted through an apostolic fathering grace in your life, your life in Christ will never be the same. This is the technology how bring the heaven into the earth. Remember our citizenship is after all from the heaven. Let us live the life(style) of the heaven in the earth. Be Blessed.
