Why did Jesus Christ die on the Cross? Part 1

Why was Jesus Christ (Prince of peace) killed on the cross?

Prince of Peace, Akiane Kramarik
Me holding the “Prince of Peace” painting by Akiane Kramarik, child prodigy. The painting is “Alive!”, I can feel the love, peace emanating from it.

Was it because God was crazily in love with us, or He just wanted to be ‘satisfied’ and be ‘content’ with us?
This new series will help you get a more clear revelation of the Father heart of God and overcome your struggles with receiving His love. So many Christians sub-consciously believe that Jesus loves them more than the Father loves them, because Jesus rescued them from the Father’s wrath.

To help us understand, let’s have a look at 2 illustrations of traffic offense:

1. Today, you drove 150km/hr through an big area set aside for an blind children’s conference. There were 10 signs along the way that said “20 km/hr only”. What you did was extremely dangerous for the children. The police caught you and gave you a big fine $50,000 fine. You can’t afford to pay, you will have to goto jail. Later, someone you don’t even know, came and pay the fine for you so you can go free! The judge didn’t really forgive you, but was satiasfied because the fine was paid. There was no love on the judges part, it was a judicial transaction.

2. Today, you drove 150km/hr through an big area set aside for an blind children’s conference. There were 10 signs along the way that said “20 km/hr only”. What you did was extremely dangerous for the children. The police caught you and gave you a big fine $50,000 fine. You can’t afford to pay, you will have to goto jail. Later, the judge said ‘Forgiven!, I love you, your fine has been weaved, there is no more need to pay for it! you are debt free and forgiven with no conditions!! now don’t do this again.” This is great news!! It shows love on part of Judge that he took the initiate to clear your debt because of His mercy.

Views on the atonement

The so called “traditional view” that most people have been taught in the church, is that Jesus came to pay the debt we owe to God for breaking His laws (similiar to illustration 1. Also known as Penal Substitution). In order for us to be forgiven, Jesus had to take the punishment for our sins from God who is an angry judge. Is like that God has anger problem, and He needs payment in order for His anger to be appeased and satisfied. Is that really the case?

 

I mean, if God IS love as mentioned in

1John 4:8 The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Love is defined as keeping no record of wrongs,

NIV 1 Cor 13:5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

NASB© 13:5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,

NRSV© 13:5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful

Love has no ‘unforgiveness’, hence does He require payment or punishment in order to forgive us? Why can’t he just forgive us unconditionally without any payment? In fact, He already has before time began in eternity past, because Love is forgiveness. An merciful judge can weave the debt because He is love. If an friend wrongs you, you can just love and forgive them, without them ‘paying’ for it by suffering in anyway.

Love doesn’t require any payment, it is unconditional forgiveness.

God is Pure Love, it keeps no record of wrongs, no unforgiveness, God IS forgiveness. There is no need to do anything for forgiveness because we are already all forgiven because forgiveness is Who He Is.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His One and only Son…

Traditionally we’ve taught that the reason God sent Jesus was so that He could forgive us, but the reason why He sent Jesus to rescue us is because He already forgave us!! because HE IS LOVE!!

Forgiveness is not an event, it’s a Person.

The life of God is in His Blood

Leviticus 17:11 for the life of every living thing is in the blood. So I myself have assigned it to you on the altar to make atonement for your lives, for the blood makes atonement by means of the life.

Jesus didn’t die to pay the payment for our debt to get us forgiveness from God, but He died to pour out His blood so we can drink of it, which is love/life/forgiveness/healing personified. In order for us to be joined to Him, He has to pour out His blood.. Jesus allowed Himself to be killed by wicked man so that we can drink of His blood and His blood would become our blood.

Jesus’ death on the cross was not so that God could forgive us, but to open up God’s forgiveness to us which was always there in eternity so we could take and drink of it; human beings thought that God had unforgiveness and was against us, but this is the lie that caused us to turn away from God Who is Love and Forgiveness.

Hebrews 9:22 Indeed according to the law almost everything was purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins; we think that in order for our sins to be forgiven, someone has to pay by dying; but that’s not what it’s saying here, its the blood that is/brings forgiveness, not the death.

We have already been forgiven from all eternity because Forgiveness is found in God Himself, His character, Who He is. So If you want to receive experience His forgiveness, you need to be joined to Him by drinking His blood, His life, Himself.

John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”

Jesus gave His life because he has already considered you as his friend because he already forgave you.

Jesus could forgive sins even before He died on the cross-

Mark 2:10 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,” – he said to the paralytic

Jesus died to destroy our sinful nature, the power of sin and deliver us from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light.

Jesus rose from the dead, to make us new creations in union/oneness with God our Father, giving us New life and His Perfect record, making us children of God by reconciling us to Him in this wonderful relationship

I AM beloved of God, I'm accepted in the Beloved
I AM beloved of God, I’m accepted in the Beloved

In summary,

God forgave us before time began (because God IS LOVE- love keeps no record of wrongs; Jesus is ‘the lamb that was slain before the foundation of the world’), but that forgiveness was made available when the blood was poured out 2000 years ago (life, love, healing, forgiveness is in the blood

We will dig deeper into the coming weeks…

Mark Steen, Mystical instruments

Mark Steen,  Living lightenings, Life Strand conference, Sunshine Coast, Feb 28- March 1st, 2015

Last weekend I went to see Mark Steen, when he plays the guitar, mystical heavenly instruments/sounds come out of nowhere!! It was incredible, so life changing that listening to the music made me feel like I’m in heaven!!

Thank you so, so much Mark for sharing your revelation on the Kingdom of heaven and changing my life!!!

In the beginning of part 3, ball of light blue/saphire/white flashes across the room as Mark was talking about the angels!! I never saw it with my physical eyes but only on the video only!!

 

“Mark is a psalmist, all songs are inspired, driven, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Mark is a musicianary and a revivalist of the gospel, releasing Heaven’s frequency that recalibrates our DNA to the life strand of God.

One of the most impacting experiences of Mark’s life was when he was 20 years old and had a bike accident which resulted in him being “clinically dead”. In that time, Mark entered Heaven, where Jesus took him into many rooms, leaving Mark with the mandate to come back to life to release people into the power of God’s first love.”

Communion makes people sick??

Does God make people sick through communion, the Lord’s supper? Or do we make ourselves sick? what does it mean to partake of the Lord’s table in an unworthy manner?

1) How can one expect to get sick when Jesus clearly says in,

John 6:41-58

48 I AM the bread of life

51 I AM the living bread that came down from heaven, if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever.

54 “Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life (quality not just quantity)”.

55 For my flesh is true food, my blood is true drink,

Eternal life doesn’t only refer to the length of life, but it also refers to “quality” of life- healing, wholeness, health. When one takes communion regularly, they experience a quality of life, the healing/life benefits Jesus. Joseph prince says that in the greek, the language used in this scripture is refering to Lord’s supper in Matthew 26:26-29

When one takes time to ponder that ‘By His whipping I AM healed” as they are about to take the communion, by faith I’m tapping into the reality of HIs sacrifice for me and experiencing salvation( includes healing not just deliverance from hell).

The blood and the body of Jesus gives life to our mortal bodies, that even John the apostle never died; there are mystics that’s 400 years old still alive. Elijah, Enoch never died, communion is total opposite of death.

When I take of the communion i declare, “Your body was broken so I could be made whole, you were wounded so I could be healed. I judge myself healed. The life is in the blood, i drink your blood and i have life, I’m cleansed from a guilty conscience and washed whiter than snow, forgiven of all my sins past present and future. Thank You for blood that was poured out for me.”

In Israel today, when people take the unleaven bread for passover, there are stripes on the bread, this is actually a prophetic picture of Jesus being whipped and beaten. The communion meal is actually the passover meal.

Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you are saved through faith…”

Saved: σοζο(4982)

Pronunciation:

sode’-zo

 to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction 1a) one (from injury or peril) 1a1) to save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health 

The bread is symbolic of the body of Jesus, the wine is symbolic of the blood. When we eat of the body we are reminding ourselves of the benefits of the body which bought us healing, when we drink the wine we are reminding ourselves of the benefits of the blood which bought us life and cleansing. Throughout church history, some people have had supernatural experiences and seen signs and wonders when they have partaken of the Lord’s table.

2) Please read 1 Cor 11:17-34

The context was that, there were people who were selfish and at the communion meal, eating all the food and drinking all the wine so that there was none left for others to eat!! especially over those who were poor and had nothing left to eat… those selfish ones were obviously not taking communion to rememebr the Lord’s body and blood, but it was for selfish reasons.

Its not that God makes anyone sick, but its just that people are allowing themselves sick by not meditating, recognising the revelation, or tapping into the healing power of Jesus so that they don’t get the benefits of healing, so they actually become sick; the world we live in is already sick by the power of sin so we need Jesus Immunity to keep us healthy so to speak.

Isaiah 53:4 But he lifted up our illnesses,

he carried our pain;

even though we thought he was being punished,

attacked by God,and afflicted for something he had done.

53:5 He was wounded because of our rebellious deeds,

crushed because of our sins;

he endured punishment that made us well (brought us peace/shalom);

because of his wounds/stripes/whipping we have been healed.

E.g. imagine there was a virus going around that makes everyone sick, but if you wear mouth masks and gloves you can be protected, if you don’t you will get sick. Without recognising the body and blood of Lord and the Spirit of Life to give me life and life abundantly, i’m not getting ‘mouth masks or gloves’ of viral protection against the viral lies of this world that makes me live under the law of sin and death which produces sickness and diseases.

God doesn’t make anyone sick; but we make ourselves sick by not recognising, and rejecting revelation, and using the healing he’s provided for us through the body and the blood.

God’s judgment is God’s discipline-His love, not punishment, like an angry father as many see God.

E.g. if I’m hosting a party at my house, and my son is running around wild and causing havoc, then if it has come to a point that he doesn’t listen, I might have to tell him to goto his room for a while. This is discipline, but he’s missing out on the party and food and benefits of felloship and friendship.I”m not punishing him as such, but i’m just telling him to goto his room so he won’t cause havoc anymore. When he goes into his room, its like a room that has no revelation and he cannot experience the benefits of the party, the fellowship food and drink.

Quoting from Escapetoreality.org, Dr. Paul Ellis,

What about the Lord’s discipline?” http://escapetoreality.org/2015/02/19/1-corinthians-11v31-32/#comment-91966

When we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world (1 Cor. 11:32, NASB)

The word for”disciplinedin this verse should not make you think of punishment. It means training as in training up a child. To discipline is to disciple and we are discipled by the Lord. With that in mind, here is my paraphrase of the two verses:

When we receive the Lord’s good judgment – in him you are righteous! – and when we learn to discern what is from the Lord (grace and healing) and what is not (sickness and worry), we are trained up as sons and daughters. We no longer suffer the effects of sin and condemnation. (1 Cor 11:31-32, Paul’s paraphrase)”

God’s judgment here is simply allowing us to go out own way, which is a form of punishment in itself;

Romans 1:24, 26 “Therefore God gave them up…”, letting us go into whatever our free will wants to achive. In that, the judgment is the result from the sin we do, not God. God lets human beings have their own way, that is judgment.

We are the one missing out on the revelation of healing so that we end up living. God’s not punishing us as such, but it’s our own sin that is punishing.
God’s punishment is by allowing you to miss out on the revelation of healing.
If communion could make you sick, then who in their right mind would take it?
It doesn’t make any sense, when Jesus clearly says if ‘you eat my body and drink my blood’ you will love forever!
At Jesus last supper, there is no record of Jesus ever telling their disciples to confess all their sons before they take the communion meal!

In conclusion, the purpose of taking communion, was to remind ourselves of the healing benefits of the body and blood of Jesus. His body brings us healing and supernatural strength, his blood gives us life and cleanses us from a guilty conscience. When we are taking it, we are celebrating His death, what He achieved on the cross. It was all a Free Gift, it has nothing to do with us, confessing sins or getting right with one another- all this is a form of works, (i’m not saying we dont’ do that, because love is simply the overflow), but it was not really about that at all. Communion is communion of the Lords’s body and blood, it’s not a ‘work’, but its a gift of grace- don’t make it into a work (gotta confess your sins and do this or that, 10 steps before you can…)…. it’s a celebration!!

Working with angels Part 3, Generosity

Working with angels, Part 3,

Angel feather
Angel feather

Generosity attracts angelic ministry

Acts 10:1 Now there was a man in Caesarea named Cornelius, a centurion of what was known as the Italian Cohort. 2 He was a devout, God-fearing man, as was all his household; he did many acts of charity for the people and prayed to God regularly. 3 About three o’clock one afternoon he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God who came in and said to him, “Cornelius.” 4 Staring at him and becoming greatly afraid, Cornelius replied, “What is it, Lord?” The angel said to him, “Your prayers and your acts of charity have gone up as a memorial before God.

Revelation 8:4 The smoke coming from the incense, along with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.

Living a generous lifestyle attracts angelic ministry

The angels takes our generosity/charity and brings it before God. Generosity goes up to the throne of God as an fragrant incenese with angels holding the bowl.

Let us be generous in every area of our lives because we are grateful to what God has done for us. Generosity in our time, money, resources, material possessions, friendships, love, forgiveness , patience, the fruit and the Gifts of the Spirit etc…

Proverbs

11:24 One person is generous and yet grows more wealthy, but another withholds more than he should and comes to poverty. 25 A generous person will be enriched, and the one who provides water for others will himself be satisfied.

22:9 A generous person will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.

2Corinthians 9:5 Therefore I thought it necessary to urge these brothers to go to you in advance and to arrange ahead of time the generous contribution you had promised, so this may be ready as a generous gift and not as something you feel forced to do. 6 My point is this: The person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each one of you should give just as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, because God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace overflow to you so that because you have enough of everything in every way at all times, you will overflow in every good work. 9 Just as it is written, “He has scattered widely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness remains forever.” 10 Now God who provides seed for the sower and bread for food will provide and multiply your supply of seed and will cause the harvest of your righteousness to grow. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you may be generous on every occasion, which is producing through us thanksgiving to God, 12 because the service of this ministry is not only providing for the needs of the saints but is also overflowing with many thanks to God. 13 Through the evidence of this service they will glorify God because of your obedience to your confession in the gospel of Christ and the generosity of your sharing with them and with everyone. 14 And in their prayers on your behalf they long for you because of the extraordinary grace God has shown to you.15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

Cheerful

ηιλαροσ(2431)

Pronunciation: hil-ar-os’
Definition: 1) cheerful, joyous, prompt to do anything


from the same as 2436; propitious or merry (“hilarious”), i.e. prompt or willing:-cheerful. see GREEK for 2436

Being generous is actually thanksgiving to God; it is the same as prayer. Whenever we are generous and pray, the angels are commissioned to come and take it to God. Generosity is actually an indescribable gift God gives to us!!! being able to give is an Gift in itself!!! there is so much Joy, Cheerfulness in giving, let’s give cheerfully not grudgingly or sadly.

1 Timothy 6:17 Command those who are rich in this world’s goods not to be haughty or to set their hope on riches, which are uncertain, but on God who richly provides us with all things for our enjoyment.18 Tell them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, to be generous givers, sharing with others.

Rainbow appears on ceiling and my friends who live have never seen it before!!!
After church meeting, an rainbow appears on the ceiling and my friends who live have never seen it before!!!

Boast in God’s love for you/I AM Love

I AM the Beloved, I AM Love

(Mp3 about 20mins), to download, right click below and ‘save as’

Boast in God’s love for you

 

What do you boast about? yourself? things you do? your heavenly encounters of works of charity?  or about Jesus’ love for you??

What is the Definition of love?

1John 4:10 In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.

*I boast in God’s love for me, not in my love for God; my confidence is in His love for me, not my love for Him. God’s love for us is unchanging, eternal, everlasting; my love for Him has its ups and downs, its not always consistent. If my foundation/focus in life is on my love for Him, then I will become depressed, unworthy and condemned.

John 17:26 I made known your name to them, and I will continue to make it known, so that the love you have loved me with may be in them, and I may be in them.”

God our Father loves us the same way He loves Jesus!!

Question: Do I always tend to focus on my love for God rather than His love for me? How does this affect my relationship with God? Or with others

I AM THAT I AM” is the Name of God

*Exodus 3

3:11 Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, or that I should bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” 12 He replied, “Surely I will be with you, and this will be the sign to you that I have sent you: When you bring the people out of Egypt, you and they will serve God on this mountain.”

13 Moses said to God, “If I go to the Israelites and tell them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they as me, ‘What is his name?’– what should I say to them?”

God said to Moses, “I AM that I AM.” And he said, “You must say this to the Israelites, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” v15 God also said to Moses, “You must say this to the Israelites, ‘The Lord –the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob –has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial from generation to generation.’

*When Moses discovered “Who” God is, he also discovered “Who he is”.

If you know His Name “I AM that I AM”, then you will know your name, “I am that I AM”.

*One of the revelations of my identity in Christ, is that “I AM God’s beloved”

See yourself the way God sees you: the One He loves.

Luke 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my one dear Son; in you I take great delight.”

*I don’t say ‘I am’, but I say “I AM”. When I declare God’s Name, “I AM that I AM”, I am actually saying I AM one with God, I AM one in Him, He is in me, he lives in every cell of my body.

My name is connected to His Name, because God is in me, I can say “I AM”, I exist because of Him

*I don’t say, “I can, I will be”, but I say, “I AM” because I already have it, I lack nothing. It’s not going to happen, but it has already happened.

Questions: How important is it for us to know who we are?

Declarations you can make everyday (I do this every morning when I get up)

I AM beloved of God, I'm accepted in the Beloved
I AM beloved of God, I’m accepted in the Beloved

I AM beloved

I AM the one He loves

I AM God’s beloved

I AM Father’s beloved

I AM Jesus beloved

I AM Holy Spirit beloved

Questions: How is your self talk? Do you have bad self-image? do you speak about yourself as God’s Son or Daughter?

What is the Difference between OC and NC love?

*In the OC, you boast about your love for God because you were obligated, had to love Him

*In the NC, you boast about God’s love for you because you want to love God, not because you have to, but you have such an revelation about how much He loves you that it stirs a reciprocal love towards Him

Lazarus was referred to by others as “the one Jesus loves”

John 11:3 So the sisters sent a message to Jesus, “Lord, look, the one you love is sick.”

v.36 Thus the people who had come to mourn said, “Look how much he loved him!”

*If you want to get Jesus attention, say “I AM the one He loves..”

John called himself “the disciple Jesus loved”, John boasted in God’s love for him

*Who wrote the book of John? John wrote of himself as the One Jesus loved!!

What is the difference between disciple John and Peter? Peter was someone who boasted in His love for God, whilst John was someone who boasted in God’s love for him.

Benefits of boasting in God’s love for you, not your love for God

*You will feel the closeness of Jesus, find rest in His bossom, know the secrets of God

13:23 One of his disciples, the one Jesus loved, was at the table to the right of Jesus in a place of honor. v24 So Simon Peter gestured to this disciple to ask Jesus who it was he was referring to. v.25 Then the disciple whom Jesus loved leaned back against Jesus’ chest and asked him, “Lord, who is it?”

Peter couldnt’ ask Jesus’ directly the question, but had to go through John, because he felt far away.

*You will follow Jesus all the way to the end.

19:26 So when Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, “Woman, look, here is your son!”

John followed Jesus all the way to the cruxifiction, while all the other disciples deserted him

*You will outrun (more passionate) than anyone else

John 20:1-9 Now very early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been moved away from the entrance. So she went running to Simon Peter and the other disciple whom Jesus loved and told them, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” 20:3 Then Peter and the other disciple set out to go to the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent down and saw the strips of linen cloth lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter, who had been following him, arrived and went right into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen cloth lying there, and the face cloth, which had been around Jesus’ head, not lying with the strips of linen cloth but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, came in, and he saw and believed. (For they did not yet understand the scripture that Jesus must rise from the dead.)

*You will have greater faith. No need to see with your physical eyes to believe. Why didn’t John go into the tomb straight away? Because he knew Jesus wasn’t there, he remembered Jesus said “I’m going to rise from the dead”.

*You will be the first to recognise when God is doing something in your midst, His Presence/appearance, signs and wonders.

John 21:4 When it was already very early morning, Jesus stood on the beach, but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. So Jesus said to them, “Children, you don’t have any fish, do you?” They replied, “No.” He told them, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat,and you will find some.” So they threw the net, and were not able to pull it in because of the large number of fish.

Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” So Simon Peter, when he heard that it was the Lord, tucked in his outer garment (for he had nothing on underneath it), and plunged into the sea.

The negatives of boasting in yourself and your love for God

Peter was always boasting how much he was doing for God, he thinks he know it all,his eyes was fixed on himself, not Jesus.

*You will end up getting ahead of God’s will

Matt 16:21 From that time on Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. 22So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him: “God forbid, Lord! This must not happen to you!” 23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, because you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.”

Peter thought he knew it all, he knew better than God.

*You will end up denying Jesus, become hypocritical/compromise/backslide

Matthew 26:31 Then Jesus said to them, “This night you will all fall away because of me, for it is written: ‘I will strike the shepherd,

and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.

32 But after I am raised, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.” 33 Peter said to him, “If they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away!” 34Jesus said to him, “I tell you the truth, on this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times.” 35Peter said to him, “Even if I must die with you, I will never deny you.” And all the disciples said the same thing.

*You will always be comparing yourself with others, judgmental and jealous of others, proud, self-conscious, self-righteous, self-condemned

John 21:18 I tell you the solemn truth, when you were young, you tied your clothes around you and went wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will tie you up and bring you where you do not want to go.”19 (Now Jesus said this to indicate clearly by what kind of death Peter was going to glorify God.) After he said this, Jesus told Peter, “Follow me.”

21:20 Peter turned around and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them. (This was the disciple who had leaned back against Jesus’ chest at the meal and asked, “Lord, who is the one who is going to betray you?”) So when Peter saw him, he asked Jesus,“Lord, what about him?” Jesus replied, “If I want him to live until I come back, what concern is that of yours? You follow me!”So the saying circulated among the brothers and sisters that this disciple was not going to die. But Jesus did not say to him that he was not going to die, but rather, “If I want him to live until I come back, what concern is that of yours?”

1Peter 5:5 In the same way, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.

*You will live legalism- condemnation and death.

2 Cor 3:7 But if the ministry that produced death – carved in letters on stone tablets – came with glory, so that the Israelites could not keep their eyes fixed on the face of Moses because of the glory of his face (a glory which was made ineffective), 8 how much more glorious will the ministry of the Spirit be? 9 For if there was glory in the ministry that produced condemnation, how much more does the ministry that produces righteousness excel in glory!

Question: Can you see some examples of when you have boasted in your own love for God?

Or when you boasted in God’s love for you? What happened?

What are some practical ways I can boast in God’s love for me?

What are the some other benefits of boasting, focusing on God’s love for me?

When you boast, only boast in God’s love for you and He did for you, don’t boast about how good you are!! Don’t boast about your good works- you will always fall short, but focus on God’s eternal, unchanging love for you that is Constant, you will have a stable consistent life.

Don’t boast about your ministry, what you do for God, but what He has Done for you in Christ!!

Grace is about “wants to” not “have tos”, stirs up voluntary/spontaneous love for Jesus, reciprocating His love

1 Corinthians 1:31 so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Galatians 6:14 But may I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

In conclusion, say with me,

I AM God’s favorite One!!

I AM God’s Chosen One!!

I AM God’s Beloved!!

*This message has its origins in a message on “Boasting in God’s love for you, not your love for God”, by pastor Joseph Prince

Working with angels Part 2, Royalty/Identity

Working with angels Part 2, Royalty/Identity
_DSC2834.JPG

Royalty/Identity attracts angelic ministry

Knowing who you are, invites the angelic to minister to you more

Knowing that you are Royalty, a Prince or Princess of God, will draw the Servants of the King to come to you and be at your side. Angels are “sent out to serve those who will inherit salvation” Hebrews 1:14, the sons of the Kingdom.

In Matthew 4, the devil tested Jesus with His identity as the Son of God, trying to get Jesus to mis-use His identity/authority as a means to disobey/test God and live for His own good, but Jesus never wavered on who He was, then at the end fo the testing, angels came to serve Him. Matt 4:11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and began ministering to his needs.

Today, declare to yourself, “I AM a Son of God, I AM Royalty, I AM Prince of God, I AM Princess of God…” and the servants of the Kingdom will be attentive to you. Imagine, picture yourself dressed in royal robes, crown of Gold on your head, sitted in Christ Jesus on His throne, right beside our Father (His right-hand). Feel it, baths yourself in the emotions of Royalty

12/02/15

Last night before I went to sleep, I closed my eyes and I saw balls of light flashing back and forth for a few seconds. Today I found more 6 more angel feathers in the morning and afternoon.

Working with angels Part 1, Thanksgiving

11/02/15

Working with angels Part 1, Thanksgiving

Please watch this video by Rolland Buck, Angels on Assignnment, as he also talks about how to work with angels.

How to attract more angels into your life, how to work with them

*Live a lifestyle of thanksgiving, praise, gratitude and optimism attracts more angelic ministry to you.”

Live a life of thanksgiving to God, from the very smallest things to the biggest, live a life of gratitude. Thank Him that you are live today, for this day that he has made, for the food you eat and air that you breathe, for your friends, family, provision etc…

1 Thessalonians 5:18 in everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Psalm 118:24

This is the day the Lord has brought about.

We will be happy and rejoice in it.

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always.Again I say, rejoice!

Angels are attracted to an atmosphere of praise and thanksgiving. The main calling of angels is praise and worship God day and night non-stop!!! what a privilieged job description!!

Revealation 7:11-12

And all the angels stood there in a circle around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they threw themselves down with their faces to the ground  before the throne and worshiped God, 7:12 saying,

Amen! Praise and glory,

and wisdom and thanksgiving,

and honor and power and strength

be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!

When they see someone always being grateful, thankful, they are attracted to that person and want to come alongside you and minister, serve and worship Father, Son and Holy Spirit with you.

We are sons, prince and princes of the Kingdom of God, and angels are the servants in the Kingdom.

Psalm 103 tells us to speak to the angels,

Psalm 103:20 Praise the Lord, you angels of his,

you powerful warriors who carry out his decrees

and obey his orders! 

103:21 Praise the Lord, all you warriors of his,

you servants of his who carry out his desires! 

Quick testimony: This morning I wokeup, I had a dream that I would find angel feathers when I wake up, then I got up, put my shirt on, had sometime in prayer outside, then came back and found 6 more angel feathers. Last night our friend Paul and his son came over to the apartment, he said that while he was walking across the road, he could feel God’s Presence!!!

More Angels to the Gold Coast

10/02/15

It was crazy this morning, as I walked outside after my early morning prayer, I saw Clouds forma like a porthole formation,like God is releasing more armies of heaven upon the Gold Coast,

I feel like God is releasing/commissioning more angels onto the Gold Coast!!! More for you and me!!!

yes let it be, theres increase in angelic activity,

Angels descending upon the Gold Coast, Qld

Just a few minutes earlier in my prayer time, I was about to put my shirt on and looking to see if there was any feathers but found none, then I looked on my bed and found 5 feathers!! then I put my shirt on, and there 1 feather appeared!! 5 white feathers, 1 brown one.

What does this mean? Why?

Ask the Father, and invite the angels to minister to you, like me you could say,

“come to me messengers of heaven, I welcome you to my home, my house, you welcome here, to do your ministry here, you have free reign to bring message and blessing from my Father.”

Let’s work with the angels and receive their ministry.

The angels are on assignment to minister to us and people of the Gold Coast, the more we work with them, the more angels will come to us, I want all the angelic help I can get, so I welcome them all to my house!!
