The Word of God can never be changed, it always remains the truth. He is the Eternal One who does not change. When He speaks, He knows the content and the reason for what has been declared. "...as of a lamb without blemish and without spot, predestined before the foundation of the world" (1 Peter 1:19-20) "In Him God has chosen us before the foundation of the world" (Ephesians 1:4) God is therefore omniscient, everything is in Him. Before everything was, God had already seen you there.
There is no such thing as chance. Even when we are in a difficult situation, "all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28) All things work together for your good. If you don't love God, it's different. What God allows in your life is always for a purpose.
1 Peter 1:3-7
We have an inheritance waiting for us up there, so let's fight! It is important to stay in the position that God wants us to be in. "For those whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be like his Son, so that his Son might be the firstborn among many brothers. (Romans 8:29)
With this promise, who can curse you? It is your faith that overcomes the world. "What I fear is what happens to me; what I dread is what happens to me." (Job 3:25) But God says to you, "My righteous man shall live by faith."(Hebrews 10:38) "Now faith is a firm assurance of things hoped for, a demonstration of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) "But without faith it is impossible to please him" (Hebrews 11:6) Faith is the seal on what God has given us.
"That he may present to him a glorious church, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without blemish. (Ephesians 5:27) If God has told you, He has already done so. God has chosen us to be holy. "Seek peace with all men, and sanctification, without which no man shall see the Lord." (Hebrews 12:14) God has given us grace to believe in Him and to suffer with Him. So what can we say to God? If God tells you, you have the ability. You have the ability to be holy, to be blameless, to be perfect already on earth. God has already placed this in you and He manifests it by listening to the Word. "Sanctify them with your truth: your word is truth. (John 17:17) The election will never fail. You are elected for the task at hand. If you are elected, in an Age like this, it is through you that people can see Jesus. This is the most difficult Age, the Age of confusion, but He knows you have the victory. "If God is for us, who will be against us?" (Romans 8:31) We must demonstrate victory in this Age. "God has chosen you to win, He has given you everything you need to win.
The devil does not fight others, but always you, because he knows who you are. Since the time God visited you, since you received him, something has happened in you. If the thing of God was not in you, God would not waste His time with you. "The Lord has made everything for a purpose, Even the wicked for the day of trouble." (Proverbs 16:4) The wicked was made for the day of trouble.
When Jesus was on earth, He called each of His disciples "you come and follow me. They all had a role, even Judas Iscariot. He was not chosen for nothing, there was a purpose. "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. And we have believed and known that you are the Christ, the Holy One of God. Jesus said to them, "Didn't I choose you, the twelve? And one of you is a devil! (John 6:68-70) If God has chosen you, He knows you. If He knows you, you must know Him. "I am the good shepherd. I know my sheep, and they know me" (John 10:14). If God comes to you, you must know Him. When Peter was on the roof, he saw the vision and the voice said "kill and eat". If it was you and me, we would have said back off Satan. You must recognize this Voice. He said to them, "And you, who do you say that I am? Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. (Matthew 15:15-17) Some time later, when Jesus was talking about his death, Peter said, "God forbid, Lord! This will not happen to you. But Jesus turned around and said to Peter, "Get away from me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; for your thoughts are not God's thoughts, but those of men." (Matthew 16:22-23) There was a difference in sound. The first time it was from God but the second time it was not God. There is a difference, yet it is the same mouth.
There has to be something deep within us to recognize when God is speaking. "And my people shall never again be confused. (Joel 2:27) In confusion, we can't recognize clearly. "When he has brought out all his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, because they know His voice. They will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers. (John 10: 4-5) "If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples; you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8: 31-32) To abide in His Word, there must be something of God in you. When you have the depth of God's Word and when you are spoken to like this, your heart rejoices.
Acts 13:45-48 / 1 Thessalonians 2:13
When the Word went out, the Gentiles rejoiced. The Word that comes out of the mouth of God cannot return to Him without having produced its effect. God cannot speak in a vacuum. A son of God takes the whole Word of God. He does not sort out only what interests him. God wants to talk to you because He knows you. It is a grace that He rebukes you because you must come to be holy. Your Father is there to correct you, He watches over you. "If anyone turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination. (Proverbs 28:9) Even in the most difficult conditions did not abandon God. God teaches us, instructs us in the House of God so we can fight outside. When you come to Christ, God surrounds you, takes care of you. But at some point the trials come, it's so you can learn to fight. Mother eagle places her nest high up in the sky. If the nest was close to the ground, then the eaglets will crash to the ground. But when the nest is high, when you get out of the nest, you have time to come down and spread your wings. "And the victory that overcomes the world is our faith." (1 John 5:4) The wings God has given you is faith.
Jacob showed Joseph that God was always with him. Joseph wanted to help his father to bless his children but Jacob had spiritual eyes, he crossed his hands to bless. He knew very well what the children would be like. Faith allows you to do impossible things. The Sunamite woman who went to see the man of God because her son died. She said to her husband "everything is fine". When Israel arrived in Egypt with Joseph, everything was fine, fertile. But that's when Joseph told them to take his bones because he trusted God's promise. We have something special. All of them cannot reach perfection without us. They are all waiting for us to get there. For they still have not seen Him. "For this we say to you in the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain for the coming of the Lord shall not precede them that are dead. (1 Thessalonians 4:15) "For I would not have you ignorant of this mystery, brethren, lest you should think yourselves wise, that a part of Israel is fallen into hardness, until the whole of the Gentiles be entered." (Romans 11:25) Perhaps the last one is you? And because of you, everyone is waiting. The Body must leave in full. "As his divine power has given us all things that contribute to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and virtue, which assure us of the greatest and most precious promises from him, that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature" (2 Peter 1:3-4)
When Moses was born, they were supposed to kill all the males born. But the parents defied the king's ban. They had faith. This child could not die; God saw to it that his parents had faith. He is the One who brings faith. God watches over you, He gives you extreme courage.
They never got anything without faith. It is the same thing that God is asking of you today. Faith is a power that overcomes you and puts you in a position where the impossible does not exist. The problem is that when you come to ask for prayer, you have bad thoughts about the person praying for you, you don't have faith.
Peter is on the roof, he sees the vision and the voice that tells him "kill and eat". We need God to give us the Spirit to discern things. You are listening left and right, that is an open door to confusion. If you consider what God has given you to be fresh manna, hold on to that! God gave what was needed to the people of Israel but for them it was not enough. God was patient for 40 years. You are confused because you are looking left and right. If left is what is good for you, why did God bring you here and not there? God wants your good, He is looking out for you. The most important thing is not the servant of God but you. God's servant is in service, but God does it all for you. The Lord leads his own children. "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God." (Romans 8:14) The food is calibrated for God's people. When Peter heard the voice, naturally, he would have said, "Get away from me Satan," for that was not according to what Moses had said. We must see how God sees it. The woman caught in adultery was to be condemned because Moses had said so. That was a given. But a person comes. This woman is brought to this man. It was God's will to make them understand that things have changed. This is "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; listen to him. (Matthew 17:5) When you are not in God's plan, you are fighting what God is doing, when you are in the right place! "Moses in the law commanded us to stone such women: what say you then? (John 8: 5) "Let him that is without sin among you first cast a stone at her." (John 8:7) Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God who takes away sins. It is through Him that we have obtained forgiveness. Jesus never said that what Moses said was wrong. The accusers all left, Jesus never drove anyone away. Each one of them felt condemned. "Woman, where are those who accused you? Has no one condemned you? (John 8:10)
You have to be spiritual to see what God is doing. If you were in God's place, you would have said this is of the devil. But Peter said, "No, Lord" (Acts 10:14). Peter could not call the devil Lord. He recognized the voice of God. When God asked Abraham for his son, Abraham recognized the voice and obeyed. To put the Word into practice, you must have revelation.
You cannot love someone ardently, even in your homes, you do not get along between husband and wife.
1 Corinthians 13:1-8
When you look at this bridge, it is difficult to find each other because you have to receive the revelation. Why did they love each other on the day of Pentecost? When God gives you true love, you don't think. You don't calculate, you look at them as your own. God's love is not calculated. It is necessary that the revelation is given, your interior is changed. "The multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul. (Acts 4:32) I can never think that my brother can go to hell. You could never want your people to go to a place where you would not want to go. When someone speaks ill of a brother or sister, if it doesn't touch you, there is something wrong. For this to be in our hearts, we need the Word of God.
