"Without faith it is impossible to please him" (Hebrews 11:6). We are what we are because He has given us faith. "The righteous shall live by faith. "(Romans 1:17) This is what makes us a believer. God gives us faith to believe even what the human mind cannot think. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. "(Isaiah 55:8)
To walk with Him, we must be able to decrease and increase Him. The world teaches us to trust in ourselves and believe in ourselves, but we trust in Him alone and rely on Him. There has to be something bigger than me to change me. In the old covenant, a sacrifice was needed. This was a substitute. The animal sacrifice was a substitute for man, but man's nature could not change. The animal was not greater than man. "But to all who received him, to those who believe in his name, he gave power to become children of God" (John 1:12) We enter into a new birth. It is no longer man but now it is the nature of God. "And just as we have borne the image of the earthly, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. "(1 Corinthians 15:49) There is a change. There had to be a blood capable of changing man. The life is in the blood. "Verily, verily, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves. "(John 6:53) "For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. "(John 6:55) This was scandalous to many because they understood this in a carnal way. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4). The Word is food. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. "(John 1:1) "In it was life, and the life was the light of men. "(John 1:4) "For the letter kills, but the spirit gives life. "(2 Corinthians 3:6) The Holy Spirit comes to give Life. "I will take you out of the nations, gather you from all countries, and bring you back to your own land. I will pour clean water on you, and you will be cleansed; I will cleanse you from all your defilements and from all your idols. "(Ezekiel 36:24-25) God wants to disconnect us from the world, we need to get out of that attraction. If we have fellowship with the world, we will not be able to see God. "What agreement is there between Christ and Belial? Or what part has the faithful with the unfaithful? "(2 Corinthians 6:15) "Therefore come out from among them, and be separate, says the Lord; touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you. "(2 Corinthians 6:17) It is the world that makes us unbelievers. Faith does not need to see. To be a son of God, one must be strong in faith. The flesh always clings to us and it takes power to get rid of it. God does all things through his Word. "The earth was without form and void: there was darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moved over the waters. "(Genesis 1:2) While the Spirit of God was there, there was chaos. Order came when God spoke. We are called to fellowship with God. The world only sees God through you. This world is not our world. "I will be a father to you, And you will be sons and daughters to me, Says the Lord Almighty. "(2 Corinthians 6:18) This is adoption. He has begotten us by His Word. "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation" (Colossians 1:15) because He came first through the Word. The seed was received by Mary and she gave birth to Jesus. The Word of God is a seed and this seed is in His own and His own have not received it. "But to all who received him, to those who believe in his name, he gave the power to become children of God" (John 1:12). Every denomination has its own Jesus. What you have received will determine your walk. When you receive the True One, you are destined to be like God. We need to see that this people is different. God is helping us get closer and closer to His nature.
Titus 1:1-3 / 2 Peter 1:20-21
It is always the Holy Spirit who moves His servants to speak. It is not the desire of men, but the Holy Spirit who moves these men to speak in this way. "But when we ourselves, when an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel than that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. "(Galatians 1:8) God gives authority to His men when they are under the anointing to speak the Truth of God's Word so that the Word may be conveyed in the most faithful manner. "I do not pray for them alone, but also for those who will believe in me through their word" (John 17:20) God was watching over them and what they were to say. Paul did not make himself a servant of God but was called of God.
Galatians 1:1 / Ephesians 1:1
It was God who wanted this man to become His instrument. God had spoken to Ananias about it.
God took Paul as an instrument into His hands. When Paul says "servant of God," there is a testimony behind it.
Apostle means sent. He was sent by God, as Peter was sent, as all these men of God were sent. With God, it is clear. When God has chosen you, sent you, there is no short circuit. It must be the same thing, the same Spirit.
We can only do what God calls us to do. We don't have to go with the flow anymore. "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. "(Romans 8:14) When we walk by revelation, we walk without fear. The same Gospel that Paul preached was the same Gospel that Peter preached. Peter was taught by Jesus on earth but after His resurrection, Jesus continued to preach. He taught Paul. "For I received from the Lord what I taught you" (1 Corinthians 11:23).
The Lord is supposed to teach each of His elects. You cannot believe what you hear from God's people if you have not first been taught by God. When Jesus said, "Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves" (John 6:53), He meant it. "(John 6:53), all went away but only a few remained. "And you, will you not also go away? "(John 6:67) The most important thing is not the number but the quality. "For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. "(Matthew 18:20) "Those who say to me, 'Lord, Lord! Not everyone will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy by your name? Have we not cast out demons by your name? And have we not done many miracles in your name? "(Matthew 7:21-22) We must be attentive to the Word of God. It is not normal for us to be distracted in the House of God. What you hear determines your destiny. You must be concerned for your soul. "And what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his soul?" (Mark 8:36) I don't want to pass through the fire but I want to see this God. "Seek first the kingdom and the righteousness of God, and all these things shall be added to you. "(Matthew 6:33) You will lack nothing. For your problem, God already has the solution. In every trial you have had, God has always provided, you have always come out on top. The trial will have its end. When the people of Israel came out of Egypt, they reached the Red Sea. There was no way out. Pharaoh behind and the sea in front. God put fire between God's people and Pharaoh. God protects His people. The Lord said to Moses, "Why do you cry out? Speak to the children of Israel, and let them walk. "(Exodus 14:15) The Red Sea opened. God has not changed. We pray to the True God. He is the Almighty from Genesis until today. Seize Him by faith. Obedience and faith, and you will see the hand of God working in your life. It may take a day, 10 days, it doesn't matter because I have put it in God's hands, now it is His problem. When you doubt, the demons come back. "When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, it goes through dry places, seeking rest, and it finds none. Then he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came;' and when he arrives, he finds it empty, swept and adorned. He goes away, and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter the house and dwell there, and the last condition of that man is worse than the first. "(Matthew 12:43-45)
All whom the Father gives me will come to me" (John 6:37) "They were yours, and you gave them to me; and they kept your word" (John 17:6)." The Lord will never take someone else's sheep. He comes to get the lost sheep, that is, the ones that belong to Him. Satan can't do anything to you because you never belonged to him. "When my skin is destroyed, he will arise; when I have no flesh, I will see God. I will see him, and he will be favourable to me; My eyes shall see him, and not the eyes of another" (Job 19:26-27) Satan must see who he is dealing with. "(1 Peter 5:9) God wants men and women of character. Everyone talks about Jesus but not everyone loves Him. "If God is for us, who will be against us? (Romans 8:31) Satan does not have the power to put you down if God is with you.
The Lord is speaking to you, you are a son of God. Do not be afraid. As long as you, son of God, are on earth, there will be no atomic weapon. "Because he loves me, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. "(Psalm 91:14) "He forgives all your iniquities, He heals all your diseases" (Psalm 103:3). What God wants from you is that you know who you are. When you are like that, you behave accordingly. Stand firm. When the devil comes out of you, he hasn't found a place to go yet, so he watches for the slightest loophole to come back. As sons and daughters of God, you have authority. When you serve God with all your heart, be at peace. Always have faith and trust in this God.
